2017 has seen some momentous situations on the world stage and in our own lives. It can be hard sometimes to remember that we have moved into new energy and that everything we see is a result of that and in the long run, it’s all for the good.
We truly are seeing the good, the bad and the extremely ugly playing out in front of us. This is really is a time of no more secrets, the rising of the feminine energy and the opening of hearts. But it doesn’t look the way many of us believed or hoped it would!
In my book, Brighter Horizons – Spiritual Illuminations from the Magdaleine Group, the group talked about the shells we put around our hearts to try to protect them. They explained that when those shells crack open the pain we feel feels as though it is the pain of our own hearts, but it is not. The pain we feel is actually us allowing the love and compassion of our hearts to flow out to the world.
When we see the suffering around us we, as empaths and sensitives, can be overwhelmed or even paralysed by it. We may feel like shutting down and hiding from the world. Alternatively, we can open our hearts even further. We can use these experiences to grow in compassion, wisdom and love. We can do what we came here to do during this amazing time of transition and use our unique capacity for love and our powerful energy to help raise the vibration and add to and welcome the rise of the long awaited and much needed feminine energy.
The energy of grief has been very powerful on the planet in recent years. I have explored that one more thoroughly than I would ever have wanted to! But there is light on the horizon on that one, the time of exploring grief, transmuting it and becoming aware that our hearts are opening to more love and compassion and we don’t have to live in grief is here. That knowledge will become even more apparent in 2018 as the heart energy continues to rise.
There are those who continue to promulgate fear energy for their own purposes. Fear constricts and diminishes us on all levels, it causes division and separation but it cannot stand against love. As the heart energy rises and we move deeper into our loving hearts, fear energy loses it’s power and it’s control over us. If fear energy is still biting at your heels try my free Release, Heal & Transform Fear guided meditation to kick it into touch once and for all!
Whether we are aware of it or not, we empaths, sensitives and lightworkers have been preparing for this time of rising heart and feminine energy for most, if not all, of this lifetime. We are the way-showers, the vanguard of the new energy and ways of being. Our hearts are calling us to action. We understand energy, we understand that love and compassion are signs of true strength and wisdom not weakness as the old energy would have us believe.

Now more than ever, it is vital that we look after ourselves first! Self-care has been a huge challenge for many of us but now, more than ever it is vital that we practice proper self-care. If we don’t take care of ourselves first we can fall into blame, judgement, anger, frustration, self-pity, depression and a whole host of other dark places. So please think about that, are there any areas that you still need to heal in yourself? If there are, now is the time to recognise and attend to them with love and compassion (no beating yourself up or self-judgement!).
The best way to prepare for 2018 and help the planet usher in the rising heart energy, is to spend any free time you have from now until the New Year, healing your own wounds, giving your love to your own heart. From the time you read this until 2018 (and hopefully beyond!) treat yourself as you would treat a beloved child, lover or pet. That is the very best way you can prepare for 2018.
Listen to an excerpt from Healing For Your Heart
If you need some support healing and giving love to your own heart, I have created a special package, Healing The Heart of the Empath to help you rebuild your self-confidence, heal your heart, trust your creativity and intuition and most importantly realise just how important your presence is on the planet at this time of huge transition.
All of us carry grief and emotional shocks and traumas to some degree. Emotional traumas don’t have to be huge earth shattering events to affect us. We are all sensitive emotional, vibrational beings even if we don’t realise it! We carry grief and trauma in our bodies as well as our minds. If we don’t release and heal it it will affect our physical health as well as our emotional and mental health.
There are times in life when we are brought to our knees! The emotional pain can be so overwhelming we feel we just can’t go on. Letting go of grief can be a huge challenge which can haunt us for years. It has a huge impact on our lives and our health.
This healing guided meditation starts where you are, in the depth of the darkness. Taking gentle, tiny, baby steps it leads you through releasing the painful emotions to seeing the possibility of light at the end of the tunnel.
The trauma and grief happened, it’s over. I am safe now!
I am peaceful!
I am safe!
I create a breathing space for myself!
I look after myself!
I can do it!
It is safe to let go of everything that no longer serves me!
I choose ease!
I choose healing!
I choose peace!
I choose to survive!
I choose to see how this situation has served me!
I choose to know I can re-build myself and my life!
I am resilient and resourceful!

I accept my situation, I am where I am and I can build on that!
I have a bright future!
I give my body love and space to heal!
I am grateful to my body for everything it does to support me!
I am still standing!
I am reassured!
I am safe!

My self esteem and confidence are growing!
I move forward and leave the past behind with confidence!
I can do this!
I am peace!

“The most amazing guided meditation I have come across! Wow, “What Your Body Wants to Hear Release Grief & Trauma” is the most amazing guided meditation I have come across! There are so many out there but this really asks the most profound questions … making you really look into your thoughts and feelings”. A.Y.
“A lot of the pain in my neck and at the base of my skull had GONE! And that night I slept soundly which was wonderful as the previous two nights I’d hardly slept due to the agonising pain. For two days over the weekend just gone, I was in agony, I had severe pain in both sides of my neck and at the base of my skull, I thought it was due to a flare up of my fibromyalgia. So I put hot packs on my neck and took the max. dose of painkillers. I began to think I would have to see my chiropractor again!
Anyway like I told you in my last email I’d downloaded your meditations and it was that same night that I was guided to listen to your meditation on Grief & Trauma. I started to play it and as it continued I burst into tears and just kept sobbing….What a release!
I knew I was letting go of the Grief & Trauma that had been building up since my beloved husband passed over two years previous. And the things you mentioned on the meditation I really identified with and I was a little taken aback as I hadn’t realised I was holding onto such beliefs! And recently I’d left a job where I’d been bullied and was still holding onto a lot of resentment and unforgiveness towards my ex-colleagues and over the last few years many of the jobs I have undertaken, had left me feeling disappointed, hurt and lacking in confidence. So I think some of these emotions were also released! After the tears I felt as though a weight had lifted from me and a lot of the pain in my neck and at the base of my skull had GONE! And that night I slept soundly which was wonderful as the previous two nights I’d hardly slept due to the agonising pain.So THANKS AGAIN Barbara!! I will continue to listen to your Grief & Trauma meditation (& your other meditations). Love,Mary.
“Have been listening to the Grief & Trauma meditation to help after the death of my husband. I feel a real difference after just a few listens, my breathing has slowed down and the palpitations have lessened dramatically. I also feel more relaxed and less “weepy”. K.R.
