Dealing with exhaustion and energy vampires.

Transformational Tidbits

August 2014:Dealing with exhaustion and energy vampires.    

Have you ever noticed how draining it is to be around certain people? You may feel tired, get a headache or feel a tightness in your chest. Similarly, you may feel overwhelmed when a good friend or family member draws you into problems that they are facing. More often than not, you would have taken on issues that aren’t your own on behalf of those around you.

We are all empathic to a certain extent and when we don’t cleanse and replenish our own energy through our connection with Source/God & the Earth and pull out other people’s energy from our own energy field, we get more and more exhausted and can eventually create dis-ease in our own bodies.

I recently wrote about a daily practice to get present, ground yourself and connect to Source/God which can be read here This will keep you connected and replenish your energy. Here is a handy tool to use at the end of each day (or more often if relevant) to pull out energy that isn’t yours and call back your own energy.

Once you have gotten present, grounded yourself and connected to Source/God, imagine a bubble in front of you with a magnet in it. Turn the magnet on and let it pull out any energy (from your physical and energetic bodies) that is not yours. This can be energy that has been given to you or you have taken from others. Now, call on the violet flame to cleanse this energy and then send it back to all of the people it came from. You don’t have to see or name the people, just know that it is being returned to them as balls of energy.

Put up another bubble in front of you with a magnet in it. Call back all of your energy that has been taken from you or you have given to others. See balls of energy come flying into the bubble, call upon the violet flame to cleanse it and take it back into your energy field – it knows where it needs to go.

This is a general catchall process although can be done with one specific person in mind if you feel the need. Once you have completed the process, don’t forget to fill in with gold.

You should feel lighter, invigorated and calmer. If you haven’t done much energy clearing, it is a good idea to start doing individual energy swops with all of the people you are close to and any-one from your past that you feel you still have issues with.

I would love to hear how this impacts on your life so please drop me a note in the comments section below and wishing you a wonderful month ahead!

Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words and your faith stronger than your feelings

Love and blessings

In a world where we are overwhelmed by the constant bombardment of technology, responsibilities and relentless pursuit of our goals, it is critical that we regularly take some time to step back from our day to day lives and objectively reassess where we are on our life path, who we have become, and more importantly, who we choose to be in the future.

At Spiritual Quest Journeys, we believe that there is no better way to do this, than to explore both our outer and inner worlds. Our spiritual tours explore ancient sacred sitesmystical and magical locationsfascinating placesholistic wellness centers and retreats around the world. Most importantly, we recognize that time away is hard earned vacation time and our tours are imbued with a sense of excitement, adventure and fun.

As spiritual travelers ourselves, we acknowledge the importance of a well balanced tourism offering, and each itinerary is carefully designed to offer a subtle blend of seamless destination management; interconnectedness with the earth, exploration of the area and culture; personal development, relaxation and integration time; ceremonies and meditation; group consciousness support and guidance; and something unique and exclusive.

Intuitive Soul Readings

“I highly recommend Peta´s intuitive coaching sessions because of the unique way she interacts with each individual. Peta has a very soothing and gracious way of guiding one to the root cause of the issue, without being pushy or invasive. Her approach is calming and led from her heart space. I love the techniques she uses to get one centered in the moment, grounded and connected before looking at the energy – this was very refreshing and helpful for me.

Peta is then able to shift the energy with ease and grace. She comes at it from the spiritual energetic side and fills your heart with love. I felt like I had a champion on my side and was able to move through the blocks easily and could take on my desires and goals from a calming, stable, well-balanced place. As I mentioned above, I would recommend Peta time and time again because of the beautiful person she is and the techniques she uses are powerful and effective.”
