I see life is a journey from love forgot to Love remembered with everything in between our training ground (or playground!) depending on your perspective. The path I have chosen for this life is to remember the Love of who I am and to inspire others to do the same. I believe that as we remember and embody who we divinely are, we rise and in our radiance, give cause for others to do the same.

I was asked in a recent interview:

“You come from a long line of healers, but your story – where did it really begin for you?”

Looking back, it’s hard to say where my story began as it’s a weaving road that is constantly in motion. But if I could go to the source, it would be the moment that I discovered Source (my soul) within.

As a child, I was very inquisitive with a deep fondness and affinity for the earth. We didn’t have the digital age to keep us entertained, just the vastness of nature, which my family always encouraged me to explore. I remember being so happy running up and down the fields that surrounded our home, and listening to my Great Aunt share tales of the little folk (the Faeries) that inhabited our Scottish landscape. I absorbed anything and everything to do with the elemental side of nature and her power to bring joy.

As I grew up, I kept the love of the earth within me but somewhere along the line had stopped believing in her magic. I studied for my Bachelor Honours degree in Medical Biotechnology and then followed a scientific career in cancer research. I enjoyed my job feeling that what I was doing was contributing to the quality of life for others, but eventually the pharmaceutical world didn’t feel right. One day in 2006, I sat at my work desk to look up evening classes – something to shake the mire of where I felt my life had got to. A course in Reiki jumped out to me! At that time, I didn’t know what Reiki was but felt an inextricable pull to join the course. As I studied this form of healing, I felt like I had returned, home. It opened me again to what had always been there but this time I was fully ready to embrace all that would enfold.

After a year of studying Reiki to teacher level, I decided to leave science to begin a new path as a healer. I started working with the angels on a daily basis and was greeted by the elementals, the spirit devas and guardians of Mother Earth, who I was delighted to remember were truly as real as human beings are! I sat with them each day, crafting skincare products that we made together, or brought through their vibration to support the clients that visited me for healing. I loved listening to the angels and devas share their story of their own Creation and how their roles link to the ascension of humanity. There weren’t any physical teachers around me, just these beautiful spirit beings.

Following their nudges, I applied to a competition where the prize was to receive a shop unit rent-free for the year. I had no expectations about winning as there were so many applicants. Looking back, I was held tightly by Spirit. I could feel a palpable presence, especially the moment I got the call to say I had won! It was as if it was all meant to be (which of course it was!) for Spirit knew all the Light and joy that would then birth from, Ethereal Light, the holistic centre I went on to open.

For 3 years, Ethereal Light shone its radiance, supporting many to know their path and purpose, while helping me to believe in myself and what my role was in the world. I was destined to become a teacher the angels told me and Ethereal Light was the perfect platform to start running training courses, slowly building up my confidence and refining my ability to hear Source. And it wasn’t only the centre that provided the opportunities for growth I needed. In my personal life, I was challenged to breaking point many times over, but with each instance came deeper understanding, and the ability to trust, really trust the guiding voice of my soul. In hindsight, many parts of me needed to be stripped away – from past suffering to the conditionings of the ego that lay within / reflected via others – in order to appreciate that Source resides in all. From here, I trained myself to be more neutral in my perspective and a lot more playful about life too!

As my consciousness grew, the teachings of the Angel Healing®, Atlantean Crystal Healing™ and Unicorn Healing™ flowed through my soul and spirit team, who comprise mainly the Elohim (Creator Angels of the 12th dimension who are helping to establish the new Aquarian Age on Earth). When the need to share the Angel Healing®, Atlantean Crystal Healing™ and Unicorn Healing™ programs became too great, Ethereal Light closed its doors as a holistic centre and opened up as an online school, serving thousands of souls around the world to rise up and shine their divinity too.

From then until now, I have continued to teach around the world, became a mother and step-mother of three boys, a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher and now I am writing my first book, ‘Rainbow Rising – a Unicorn guide to Living with Soul’, which will be out summer 2018. It’s a busy life but a fulfilling one! Like you, I am continuing to teach what I am learning and all-ways refining to be a better person and appreciate life for the gift it is. I am so passionate about sharing this journey of ascension with you, Beautiful Soul to inspire you to rise ever more and shine your gorgeous Light for all to benefit! Because we need you to remember that You are Love and by supporting each other, we can create (we are creating!) a brighter world.

In the words of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés:

“We do not become healers. We came as healers. We are. Some of us are still catching up to what we are. We do not become storytellers. We came as carriers of the stories we and our ancestors actually lived. We do not learn to love in this sense. We came as Love. We are Love. Some of us are still catching up to who we truly are.”

In Love all-ways,
