We need to work with all of the aspects of us in order to be well – this includes our mind, our emotions, our body and our spirit.

We are more energetic now, more psychic. I’m sure you’ve had an experience where you have thought of someone and they've contacted you, even if it has been a while since you last spoke to them. We are much more connected to each other – this can be good and fun at times, but it can also make life more difficult.

Did you ever get a gift that you didn’t want? We receive emotional pain from other people, not deliberately, but because sub-consciously we have given permission to receive it. I teach you how to let go of emotional energy that isn’t yours, that you’ve possibly picked up from other people. I will show you how to become more aware of the reasons why you’re doing that and how to change the chemistry of your psychic field, so that you become stronger and more empowered in your life.

Here’s a technique that might help you with this right away – if you think you’re feeling someone else’s pain, or you are in conflict with with someone at the moment and can feel emotional pain between you and that person, take a minute to come into connection with your body more as you read these words.

Breathe, relax, and come in more. Let go of the mind for the moment and come into your body, it doesn’t matter what’s going on, who is right or wrong, just slow down and breathe, so you can become more clear. DO it again, slow down and breathe. Say this to yourself “I feel safe to slow down.” and wait until you really believe it.

Now, where do you feel it – in your chest? Your stomach? Is there a weight on you? Breathe into it. Slowly, breathing into the weight and allowing it to dissolve away, allow knots to loosen, anxiety to dissipate. Bringing your awareness into yourself brings relief. Now say “Thank you” to the person that you’ve been thinking of, to let go the energy of the emotion. If there’s anything else you’d like to say then say it now, but out of love, not out of anger. Such as “Thank you for the lessons I’ve been learning, I don’t understand your point of view but you are just as important as I am in the world, and we are having some communication difficulties. I release my need to be right, and I ask for space between us so we can clear animosity and come into balance, so we can understand each other better”.

Breathe out and relax, and let the energies dissolve away. How do you feel now? If you’re still holding onto the pain, the hurt, there is a reason for it, why can you not let it go? Think about it, perhaps you need to have the last word? What is the truth of the matter? Is it coming from fear, anger, hurt or jealousy? Can you let it go now?


Knowing yourself is the key to wellness. This is deep, transformational work that not everyone will be able for. But it’s the foundation to happiness, to joy, to having the life that you’ve always wanted. My book will help you learn about your patterns and your needs and teach you how to release them and embrace new, healthier patterns so you don’t need to get hooked into cycles of anger, fear and jealousy any more.
