Soul & Spirit talks to renowned spiritual leader Matt Kahn about his new healing mantra cards and why taking a loving approach to life is key
We often talk about the power of love, and how the warmth of this emotion can awaken our soul to the miracles of life. Well, this is something that certainly rings true for Matt Kahn, a spiritual leader and highly-attuned empathic leader from the US. The author and YouTube sensation has spent years helping people feel more loved and open to the possibilities in life, and has completed various physical and emotional healings across the world with this in mind.
He’s now launched his first deck of beautiful and intuitive cards, The Healing Mantra Deck, and with it he aims to encourage people to join his love revolution by tapping into their own intuition as well as loving and trusting themselves.
“Everything I do is in support of the evolution of humanity,” he tells us. “No matter what we do on the healing journey – whether it’s realising our life purpose, healing our past or attracting our soulmate – I believe we have to do it in the most heart-centred way. When we take a loving approach to life, it not only helps us to achieve our goals, it makes each of our goals more fulfilling. It is truly my honour to offer a new paradigm of healing and spiritual evolution in this way.”
A spontaneous awakening
Matt’s journey into spirituality started when he was just eight years old and he had an OBE (out-of-body experience). “I wound up in the most magical garden I’ve ever seen in my life, where the colours were so bright, it was as if they were overflowing with the frequency of love,” he explains. “I’d never felt so much love in that pure way. I felt safe and secure and I remember that being a really profound moment for me.” It was in this garden, and while Matt was in this dreamlike state, that he believed he met a higher being – and that higher being was Jesus.
“When I was about 20 years old, the being that had walked with me in the garden started to converse with me telepathically and I started having conversations with various Angels and Ascended Masters,” he continues. “Every day I would learn different things about the Universe and these conversations were attuning my intuitive gifts. It was through this process that I started to become ‘activated’, and then I started to pass on messages to strangers. The messages may have been from deceased relatives, about an inner healing process that was underway or about a personal yearning they had. I didn’t know how I was doing what I was doing, but I was just instructed to do it. And because my guides carried the love from the garden I saw when I was eight, I always followed these messages.”
All these years later and it’s clear that Matt has truly found his calling. Today, he works mostly with large audiences and he travels across the world to offer various healing sessions. He also runs workshops, retreats and online programmes, and his third book – The Universe Always Has A Plan – is set to be published this year.
“I humbly can say I have had so many success stories and every time something happens, I thank the divine miracle that works through me. It’s not just me doing something – I’m holding space and working in collaboration with that which moves through me,” he says.
One of his most memorable moments involved a woman who attended one of his five-day retreats. “She’d been in a motorcycle accident and had a huge wound. One the first day I saw this huge gash, but by day three it was actually completely healed,” he says.
It’s not just physical ailments that Matt focuses on, though. “So many people that come to me have emotional blockages that they’ve lived with for many years and have spent lots of time trying to solve,” he explains. “They sit in front of me and we could talk for just one to three minutes and those blockages are instantaneously gone. What I’ve been taught through the Universe is that you have to learn to work with people’s nervous systems in order to get right to the heart of the issue and ensure they don’t fall back into old patterns once they leave you. I have this way of channelling energy at the frequency of love that helps people get to the bottom of things really quickly.”
Expand your soul
Matt’s new deck of cards also works on this idea of the frequency of love. Each of the 52 cards contain channelled mantras that have been encoded with healing energy to realign your mind, body, heart and soul. Matt hopes that people will bolster their connection to the Universe through using them and realise the power of their own strength.
““I had often dreamed of the day I would have my own card deck, although I didn’t know what it would be about. So, when it came to the point of my career when it was time to create one, I received a moment of inspiration – or what I call a download – from the Universe. That told me that each mantra in this card deck would contain an energetic frequency that would help people to take these words and affirmations and use them to inspire deep healing and invoke a great expansions of their soul’s journey,” he explains.
“Each mantra of the deck allows the guides and the angels to facilitate our healing and the more we become consciously aware of this process, the more we can actually benefit and allow it to change our experience. These cards help make people more aware of the miracles that are already happening – so we can experiences the healing and magic that is already around us.
“My hope is that the deck becomes a faithful companion, a loving support and a wise guide for those finding their way into a life of expansion and inspiration,” he adds. We’ll certainly be using them here at Soul & Spirit.
The Healing Mantra Deck by Matt Khan (£17.99, Hay House UK) is on sale now. Look out for his next book The Universe Always Has A Plan in March this year.
