Tarot Blog Hop | Jays’ Musings | Reiki Blog Hop


Welcome, to the first musing of 2018, however its not the first blog I have written in 2018, there have been two already since January, you can find them under the Reiki or Tarot Blog Hop links. Through out January, I have this vibe that the training wheels are off! At the start I didn’t really have a clue what this meant or what it referred to. I have already been aware of the massive changes going on within me and around me, so I had believed this to be another confirmation and reference to that, but now here at the start of February, I believe it is something more.



In order to paint this picture and help you follow this narrative more easily, I could take you back to the very start and chart my history, but let’s face it this is not a biography nor is it ‘This is Your Life’ – so let’s pretend that I did and instead let me give you the potted history. I started in Media, went into Hairdressing, followed on into Communications and gave up the traditional career path after Computing. Most of these were big hitters, HNC for Media, Hairdressing and Computing, DiPHE for Communications. I spent the next 7 – 8 years off the grid being a carer and learning more about Humanity or lack there of than is really needed in one lifetime, let alone realising that truly no-one cares unless they are your family or a truly close friend.



Alright maybe I am being a bit unfair… There are those that care, it was just within those 7 years I rarely met them outside of friends and family. I realise that I wanted to become the one that cared about what someone was going through but not try to ‘fix’ them – however more on that piece in a few – During one of those 7 years, I had a conversation about hands on healing and that came back to re-visit me in the December of 2012 and set me off on a journey that helped me to discover more of the skills that I was going to need. Reiki, Wicca, Astrology, Creative Writing, Angel Healing and Angelic Reiki. As well as Kundalini Reiki, Shamballah MDH and Karuna Reiki… It was a huge period of change over something like 2 – 3 years.



So that almost brings things up to date, however there is another piece that I have to add to this and its where the ‘fixing’ comes into play; truthfully until around 2016, I was an unintentional ‘fixer’ I wanted everything and everyone to be better, but I didn’t understand that I wasn’t the one that needed to do the fixing, it had to come from the other person, they had to be the one to fix and mend their own lives. It’s a generational/societal trait; I recognise that now, I just didn’t see or even know that back then. That was until I went through a lot of clearance work, in 2016 and also 2017 as well; huge amounts shifted and a lot of re-wiring went on as well.



More on that in a moment, I just wanted to add another piece that is relevant to where I am now. During 2015, I had gone through a very bad time at college, from bullying to just not liking the environment or the course, however I knew that Body work was part of my journey. I left the college and went into training, I had a very good experience doing my Crystal Therapy Diploma, so I thought this was the route to take, through that I discovered the roots of Massage, well one of the roots anyway, and I followed that path as well. I had started to work out why but only a glimmer of it.



In the periods between training, I decided to keep things fresh in my head, so I started learning about Chinese Massage and Acupressure and in the background completed the Advanced Crystal Healer Diploma that I had started and sort of forgot. What I began to realise from doing the Chinese Massage and Acupressure, was that Chinese Medicine really interested me and attracted me but also the De-armouring work and training that I had received also played apart in this, again I just hadn’t worked out how they all came together as yet, but that was because this recipe wasn’t complete, Chinese Medicine, isn’t just massage, it is acupuncture, acupressure, massage, Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Herbalism. Sadly my allergies wouldn’t forgive me for getting involved with that one, so I improvised and added Meridian Psychotherapy or EFT as it is more commonly known.



It really felt and seems like a lot of study, but it is paying off! Yes I still have the traditional Western massage training to complete, but that is also coming to its end. True there are maybe one or two other things that need to be wrapped up but the building blocks are in place and almost ready to come of the ground and grow. I haven’t been able to see the bigger picture, only the seeds and the parts that were needed not where it was going or what it was going to become. I guess while I was so wrapped up in trying to gather everything it wasn’t high on my list but I am starting to see just how important it needs to be. I am starting to realise just what I need to do.



Naturally I am not as naive to just blurt it all out in text for everyone to see, not until I get my safeguards in place! I have been on the receiving end of those who are self-serving, and those who are more than happy to take the work of others and claim it as their own. However there is a fine line, between silence and secretive; just as there is a fine line between ambiguous and confusing, it is about saying just enough to help folks understand, but not too much that those who would try and profit can steal the ideas to make their own… It is amazing what you learn when you start working with official channels, they tell you what to be careful of and how to protect yourself!



It’s not just body work that I am interested in, it also the soul work and clearing work, which is why these skills are so vital; knowledge as well as instinct and understanding are key to the process that I am working to understand, the healing that we go through and how all the skills in energy work, healing, crystals, sounds and everything else that I am waiting to complete fit into this, naturally before I can bring this into the light I have to wait, but I am looking forward to putting out there and being open about it as well.

Angelic Consciousness Cards – My 3 Year Project 1





On several posts that I have to both The Reiki Box and Jays I have mentioned and sometimes briefly explained the background to the Angelic Consciousness Cards. I decided that I would actually spend a little time both here on my blog as well as on The Reiki Box and Jays giving a bit of background to how the concept of the cards was arrived at. On the pages there is not really enough space to explain it in detail, however it does give you a little bit of a background to the concept but not really the creation.

Base ChakraAlthough not part of the Angelic Consciousness Deck that I have build, this is an example of how the orginal deck would have looked; however in place of the base chakra it would have had the name, symbol, description and traits of an Ascended Master or Archangel. I was introduced to The Consciousness Cards through Angelic Reiki 3 years ago and then several times since during my journey of Angelic Reiki. The idea behind the original deck was that you would shuffle and select a card, read what is said and then that card would represent the guiding influence throughout the entire workshop. The absolute beauty of this deck was it actually reflected where you were at the time and in many ways embodied who you became by the end (in an energetic sense).

I became that enamoured with the cards that I began a quest to find a set of my own, I began with an online search of retail outlets (amazon, waterstones, and ebay… etc) however this was to no avail. I then expanded my search to just online but by the time I began that search I had started to forget details about the cards and so eventually abandoned the search. That was until I redid my Angelic Reiki Practitioners and was reintroduced to the cards again, however at the time I did not think to explore looking for them but I kept it mind. Later that year I did the Masters certificate and really became fascinated by them and decided to start really investigating Angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters.


Further Investigation

I started by doing an Angel Healing Diploma, which introduced me to several archangels as well as my own healing guide (who is an Archangel) and as part of the diploma we were asked to create a set of Angel Cards. This brought back into my mind the Consciousness Cards and set me off on a quest, however circumstances changed and I did not return to the course until this Brow Chakrais month.

However before I had got ‘side-tracked’ by life I had created the Angel Cards but not quite as the instructions had set out. In my head I kept seeing the original consciousness cards deck, and I decided that I would attempt to replicate it in some way.

As you can image after such a long time, the design and even the name of the author had become a hazy memory so this deck that I had started to create, needed some inspiration and I decided to look not only to the Angel Healing Coursework but also Reiki, Ascended Masters and the Kingdom of Light, what I ended up with was 27 amazing connections and then I was hit with more inspiration, to find pictures that resonated at the same frequency as the meanings and names that I had selected. This took me a while because some of them it was an instant connection and for others it took time to find the right image as there were several variations on the theme.


It is true that most images that are in circulation belong or have been created by someone either known or unknown and at the time the image search that Google has was very much in its trial period (I also was not aware of it at this time). I had also printed off cards and was testing them out very casually online on my own page, so I was not really too bothered about ownership or documenting where an image had come from because they were for my personal use and really to answer a question on a paper as well.

However now that is starting to change because the more I am testing out the cards and the more they are resonating with people, I am now starting to wonder if I should begin to take the project further and using the images as a template, maybe look into creating an actual deck. The interesting thing is that I received an email the other day that told me about a deck of cards that had been created by another Angelic Reiki Master, who also does publishing. However this deck is more in-line with some of the authors already out there and they do not have the same feel or vibe as the ones that I have created.

What Next?

Heart Chakra

For the moment I am continuing to ‘field test’ the cards online and possibly within my Angelic Reiki as well as other workshops that I plan to do in the coming months. This will allow me to get a feel for what I need to change, tighten up or failing that find an artist, funding and a publisher and move into the next phase, which will be making my own cards a reality. You can follow my progress, check out the card readings and find out more about me and all my work here through this site or on facebook.
