Crystals and altars and goddesses, oh my! Our amazing experts share some advice to prepare any beginner for their spiritual future
2021 is a magical year! The vibration aligns for positive change, transformation and manifesting what you want.
1 Set your intention for what you wish to manifest as if it has happened and
you are grateful! For example, “I am so happy that I’m with my soulmate.”
Or, “I am so thankful for my perfect health.”
2 Give your manifesting a boost by visualizing the outcome as if it had happened. Be creative with the details. Add specifics using each of your
senses. When complete, smile. This releases the feel-good hormones
creating spectacular manifesting vibes, plus you’ll look stunning!
3 Stay aligned with the vibration of your success with affirmations and
crystals. Recite heartfelt affirmations like, “I am a magnet for…” Slip a
crystal into your pocket, like citrine for abundance or rose quartz for love.
Every time you see or touch your crystal, know this is a reminder that
you are worthy, deserving and aligned to receive.
4 Trust your intuition. You’ll be guided to make any adjustments, including help from your angels, spirit guides and faeries, so you’ll be at the right place at the right time.
Wake up with crystals
When we experience a spiritual awakening, we literally “wake up”. This
awakening happens as your soul starts to expand and evolve. It can feel daunting and you may find yourself starting to question everything you once believed. Crystals are an excellent tool to help you remain centred and grounded and keep you feeling connected to your soul while you go through your personal awakening.
There are many useful crystals during this transition. Lapis connects your
voice to your third eye and thus helps in communicating spiritual ideas. Carnelian is a stone of action and strength, which helps you be strong whatever comes up in your awakening.
Quartz is my spiritual awakening stone. Often referred to as a ‘Master Healer’, it’s an amplifying stone that works by absorbing spiritual energy, storing and then releasing it, regulating energy flow. Quartz enhances spiritual growth by facilitating a deep soul cleanse, allowing you to be open to a new way of thinking. It is the perfect stone for any energetic shift.
Celebrate the moon

The Goddess Temple is an exclusive monthly membership circle that supports and nurtures your development, both with your own spirit
and with the greater spirit. It is the perfect start to your spiritual journey in the new year. Join me and the ancient goddesses, as you are given the time,
space and tools to explore yourself and your own spirit.
Each month there will be live Zoom sessions around both the New
and Full Moon. Honouring the sacred feminine cycles of the moon allows
you to tune into your own feminine energies and gives you permission to
explore how we, as individuals, are influenced by the moon cycles. In a
private Facebook group, there will be tutorials, information, rituals and
practices which will encourage you to explore and understand the Universe, the greater spirit, and discover what aspects resonate with you. There will also be monthly channelled messages from higher beings, guided meditations and oracle card readings to help support your spiritual awakening. The Temple will nurture and hold space for you to grow and develop at your own pace.
Embrace your experiences
More people are going through or have recently been through a spiritual
awakening. It is commonly thought that a spiritual awakening can follow trauma, but there are other reasons why we go through a spiritual awakening, or, ‘Dark Night of the Soul’.
My two main spiritual awakenings are from a traumatic time in my life, but they also came after a big conversation. I believe we have many spiritual awakenings. But the level of resonance, with whatever brings on the
awakening, will determine the level that we awaken to.
For those of you who want to know how to get through or maintain a spiritual awakening, these are my personal recommendations.
• I wear a selenite necklace, a crystal that radiates the crown chakra, which
leads to a spiritual awakening
• Use yoga or meditation to be present in each day and let your thoughts pass through you freely
• Forgive yourself and anyone that has hurt you, or ask the Universe for
forgiveness if you have hurt someone
• Recognise any karmic lessons that keep appearing, because once you
break the karmic cycle you will move forward freely
Create a sacred space
After the events of 2020, we’re all looking forward to 2021 and a new year to bring fresh experiences and inspire new spiritual journeys. A perfect way to start your spiritual awakening is to create your own altar or sacred space. It’s always a good idea to cleanse the space and items that you wish to place on your altar. This can be done by using some sage incense and wafting the smoke over the space, reciting the following:
“I clear this space with joy and love, may it be the place of my spiritual awakening”.
Choose items which are special to you. This can be an ornament, a piece of jewellery, a keepsake of a loved one, candles, crystals, anything that has meaning. If you need help, I have created a starter set called The Witchcraft and Wicca Box, which includes information and starter items for your altar.
Each morning, stand in front of the altar and say an affirmation for the day.
Every evening, go back to your altar and tell it what you were grateful for that day.

After hitting rock bottom back in 2013, I came across The Secret. This book is based on the Law of Attraction and completely changed my life, along with other spiritual practices and magic I applied daily. It had such a deep
impact on me that I created my online manifesting academy to teach the secrets behind the Law of Attraction, and it’s also a spiritual development group. There are different weekly spiritual workshops and daily lives, angel card readings, meditations and live energy cleanses, and we have a new, exciting workshop planned for January.
I’m in the middle of getting my book ready to be published in 2021. It’s based on the real secrets behind the Law of Attraction. The must-have crystal that helped me on my spiritual awakening journey was clear quartz. I love that you can program this stone for whatever you would like help with, simply by placing it on your heart. Clear quartz is known as the master quartz and is very powerful.
PERFORM AN ANCESTRAL RITUAL
1 Research everything that you dream of or visualise – colours, patterns, symbols, numbers, everything has a spiritual meaning. When I was developing my spirituality, I was drawn to discover the meaning in everything. When I researched the meanings, they always fitted in with how I felt or something I needed.
2 When you’re feeling stuck, bring yourself into a space of white light, close
your eyes, breathe deeply and imagine the white light getting brighter. Call an ancestor to step towards you out of the white light. When you see their face, speak out about what is bothering you. Then see them immersing back into the white light and breathe yourself back into the room.
3 Remember that we all have seven main ‘clairs’ or light senses. There is a
clair working strongly within you and it’s down to you to discover your clairs and strengthen them. I believe the clairs create a brilliant foundation for our spiritual selves, which is why I created my membership, The School of Spirituality, to teach people all about tuning in.
TRY INSPIRED WRITING
Going through a spiritual awakening can feel like a scary and lonely time, but you are not alone on your new journey – a lot of positive things can come out of your experience. My recently launched Self-Care Stationery range will inspire you to write your way to wellness. My new Goddess
Wellness Journal is a great start to your spiritual awakening. Journaling is a great tool at a time where you may feel judged, fearful and confused. Your journal is your best friend; it’s non-judgemental, and always accepting of who you are and who you want to become. Often, writing things down will give you all the answers you need. Your journal becomes that sacred space to share your heart’s desires and secrets. You can turn your confusion to clarity.
Take time each day to journal and you will learn so much about yourself
and feel emotionally supported by this daily practice. Remember you are never alone, there are people just like you going through the same thing everyday, even spiritually supportive souls like me.
INVITE IN YOUR ANGELS

Whenever you begin something new it can feel daunting. But as the changes settle in, you always remember how it started – where you were and what you were doing to bring that spark of excitement as you began an exciting new adventure.
My must-have starter tools, both bought 21 years ago in Glastonbury on
my first weekend there, were the book Initiation by Elizabeth Haich and my favourite aquamarine crystal, Marina. I still use them everyday.
The must-be place for you to start your journey is with me on a New Now
Retreat in Glastonbury, Somerset, known as the ‘Heart Chakra of the World’. Within the landscape is the truly magical land of Avalon, with its Sacred Spaces and Mystical Legends. Come for a weekend or longer to experience your Spiritual Emergence with the Angels Of Awakening.
