When we first find out about subtle energies, healing, intuitive and personal development, a whole new world opens up for us. Once we start to experience what we have learnt in theory, this world becomes very real and it is then important to stay well grounded and centred in order to avoid getting caught up for too long in the inevitable pitfalls such as delusion, glamour, escapism and similar issues.

Since the current recession began to bite a strange phenomenon has been emerging, which can only be described as a retrograde movement affecting parts of complementary medicine. Quite a few certificated practitioner courses have been shortened from a couple of years to a few days; courses where hands on experience and tutor led tuition are essential, are now available via correspondence. It is possible to set up as a practitioner after a day or two of instruction and qualified therapists who want to add other therapies to their expertise, can do this in some instances in a matter of days rather than years.

Many moons ago I facilitated workshops on the subject of Angels, based on research, well thought-out books and my own experiences of energy work and spiritual development. Over the years, however, I feel that the subject has become a little befuddled and it may well be time to get back to basics and look at the bottom line in regard to the Angelic, especially in relation to the world, humanity and complementary medicine!

Schorl is a beautiful crystal that has a very dense, heavy and grounding energy. The colour is black, and like most black crystals it can absorb negative and static energies, which is why it is suitable to use near electrical appliances and computers with the intent to minimise their negative emanations. It is probably the most fitting crystal for this purpose, especially since it is also very hardy and does not get damaged as easily as other crystals. Continue reading
Many people have asked me over the years why we do not offer correspondence courses in crystal & energy healing and I feel it may be worthwhile to elaborate on this topic. It is my view that one cannot possibly learn how to be an effective practitioner in our field without ‘hands on’ training and supervised practice, for quite a number of reasons. Continue reading
The VHF is delighted to share the interview on behalf of the Vibrational Healing Foundation between Dr Gareth Thomas and Mind Body Spirit. Dr Gareth Thomas is the founder of Energy Medicine International (EMI).

We look forward to seeing you at the Mind Body Spirit Festival 2011.
Crystal & Energy Healing are therapies that are sadly enough not always taken seriously. They are often ridiculed or even maligned and one could think that this is because of blinkered views, ignorance or an absence of ‘scientific’ proof etc., although I personally feel that part of such prejudiced views could also exist because our therapy is not always promoted in the best way possible. One could, of course just ignore things and only focus on the positive feedback our there, but this would not really help to make a difference! Continue reading
We all live in a co created world and we also live and create/co create everything in our own environment. We also have our own unique view of the world. If shadows such as unlawful behaviour, theft, lies, slander, deceit, bullying, attempts to destroy others, colluding in unacceptable behaviour and people not practicing what they preach rear their ugly heads in your particular world, now is the time to take notice and action.
The above unhelpful qualities exist everywhere and most people will nod their heads and think, yes this does exists in my world and I feel that I personally suffer when others project these shadows onto me. The papers are full of these issues and I am told that in the more conventional workplace it is now very difficult because of the recession and the fears of losing jobs and one’s ability to support oneself. And this recession is of course also the result of shadows and so it goes on in every walk of life.
In the world of energy, healing and development, most people purport to work in Love and Light and many certainly try doing so to the best of their abilities and understanding of what this actually means. This does not mean that there are no gremlins lurking beneath this rosy surface and such gremlins, because of the nature of energy work, can become very prominent indeed. Usually they are unrecognised by those who project them but that does not make it any easier and like all gremlins, they can cause harm.
When such prominent gremlins are present in your world and risk to badly affect you and those around you, there are several options you can take.
- You can turn a blind eye, accommodate, compromise and sweep things under a carpet.
- You can turn away in disillusionment and hide.
- You can point fingers and fight for what you perceive to be right and true.
- You can ask someone else to do the fighting for you.
- You can ignore it all and pretend it does not really matter.
Sounds familiar? I have tried all these options in my life and must say from experience that none of them solve anything in the long term. The patterns will still be there, the gremlins lurking and waiting for a chance to emerge again in some form. The only way to effectively deal with obnoxious shadows is to take responsibility for your world, which means taking action:
- Wake up, do not compromise on values or integrity and shine Light where you can.
- Know who and what you truly are and that nobody can diminish you.
- Do not engage with any gremlins because then you may start to resonate with them. Never obscure what you know could harm others and show the way as best as you can.
- There may be those who are like-minded who wish to help which is great, but always take responsibility for what you instigate.
- Everything matters, the world is changing and it is not helpful to stay in shadow patterns nor to collude with those who do.
The above does work although in my experience it may take a bit of time for changes to manifest. I have the feeling that we are all given a choice and that this is one of these moments in time when our choices matter. The path of Light has always been known as a razor edged path and this is true indeed since in the end we are all accountable. When you are in a place of decision-making, please choose and create wisely…
If one is part of a group, it is very easy to get caught up in the enthusiasm of others, especially if there is an amount of trust. As healers we also prefer to perceive the best in everyone so at times we can become complacent and that can lead to a lack of discernment. As most spiritual teachers would agree, we are responsible for all our actions and also for what we create. What may be forgotten at times, is that we are also responsible for what we allow to happen without giving it the necessary attention. Continue reading
I looked up the meaning of integrity and words such as honesty, truth, honour, veracity, reliability and more of the same came up. As always in development when we peel layer upon layer of the onion of illusion away, qualities come up to be examined again and again and recently for me it was the above mentioned ones that showed me that every person perceives these qualities in a different manner.
