Sue Penney<br />

The moon has long been gazed at since our ancestors<br />

roamed the earth. Where our other major celestial<br />

body, the sun, remains constant in our heavens, only<br />

increasing or reducing in its daily span and gift of<br />

warmth and light, the moon changes daily.<br />

That the cyclical movement of the moon is important<br />

there can be no argument. She governs our tides and is<br />

essential to migrating animals and birds. She has a<br />

positive effect on the earth's axis and directly<br />

contributes to creating our relatively stable climate. The<br />

lunar cycle is also known to have an impact on human<br />

reproduction.<br />

So let's explore the lunar cycle in more detail. There are<br />

8 moon phases: the new moon (also known as the dark<br />

moon); Waxing Crescent Moon: Waxing Moon; First<br />

Quarter Moon; Waxing Gibbous Moon; Full Moon;<br />

Waning Gibbous Moon; Last Quarter Moon and the<br />

Waning Crescent Moon and each of these phases<br />

should be utilised differently depending on what you<br />

are looking to achieve in your life.<br />

New Moon<br />

The New Moon – This is the period in which to set your<br />

intentions. It is a time of fresh starts and new<br />

beginnings. Write down your goals and intentions for<br />

each new moon so you can refer back to them and<br />

check on your progress towards achieving them.<br />

Waxing Crescent Moon<br />

The Waxing Crescent Moon – this is when the moon<br />

reappears after the new moon as a sliver of a crescent.<br />

This is the time to think about your goals intensely and<br />

spend time in meditation about them.<br />

The First Quarter Moon – this is when half of the moon<br />

can be seen lighting up the nights sky. This is the time<br />

to start taking action to achieving your goals. Examine<br />

them carefully and decide if you need to make any<br />

changes to them.<br />

First Quarter Moon<br />


Issue 20<br />

Waxing Gibbous Moon – This moon phase occurs two<br />

weeks after the New Moon. This is the time of<br />

clarification and refinement. Focus intently on assessing<br />

where you are and examine your feelings. Look at what<br />

needs to be changed in your life to achieve your<br />

ultimate aims and desires.<br />

The Full Moon – this is for celebrating your progress, it<br />

is a time when one usually feels their best. It is a noted<br />

fact that anxiety sufferers tend to feel a lessening in<br />

their symptoms during the full moon. Celebration of<br />

progress is essential, it feeds back to the unconscious<br />

mind that it is on the right track. The light of the full<br />

moon brings everything into full detail to reveal things<br />

more clearly. This is the time to release the things in<br />

your life that no longer serve you. The light of the full<br />

moon helps you to identify or bring into the light these<br />

things with more clarity. This is also the best time to put<br />

your crystals out to charge in the moon's gentle energy.<br />

Waxing Gibbous Moon<br />

The Waning Gibbous Moon is the time to look back at<br />

what you have achieved, and how far have you come on<br />

your journey and to reflect on the path ahead. This is a<br />

time to be full of gratitude for the things in your life and<br />

give back to yourself and others. The Waning Gibbous<br />

Moon or Third Quarter Moon is the opposite of the<br />

First Quarter Moon. This is a time to shed everything<br />

that is not right or good in your life. Remove yourself<br />

from toxic situations. Tidy your workspace, and deep<br />

clean your home. Do cord-cutting exercises and<br />

eliminate bad habits. The strong lunar energy will give<br />

you the boost you need at this time to eject all that no<br />

longer serves you from your world.<br />

Full Moon<br />

Waning Gibbous Moon<br />

The Waning Crescent Moon – The moon has returned<br />

to its smallest slice of light. This is the time to be quiet<br />

and reflective. Find time to be at peace with yourself<br />

and rest before the cycle starts again with the New<br />

Moon.<br />

It may be beneficial to keep a lunar cycle diary to record<br />

your goals, dreams and achievements as well as how<br />

you feel on a daily basis. This might bring to light<br />

patterns that you were hitherto unaware of and may<br />

help you to plan your daily life in a way that suits you<br />

better both mentally and emotionally.<br />

Ruby is associated with <strong>July</strong>, a stunningly beautiful<br />

deep red stone that is generally imbued with the<br />

ability to inspire better health overall. The ruby<br />

historically used to be rubbed against the skin to<br />

promote youth and vitality. It has been used for<br />

centuries to alleviate pain in the body and promote<br />

better circulation. It helps improve energy in the<br />

body and energy flow in general, as it is associated<br />

with the blood due to its deep red colour. Ruby is<br />

also said to improve concentration and creativity and<br />

inspire loyalty, honour and compassion. Often given<br />

as a token of love, and therefore associated with the<br />

heart, its darker colour makes it more relatable to<br />

the base chakra. Ruby is also said to protect the<br />

wearer from psychic attack and can be used as an<br />

overall protection stone.<br />

As with all stones, the way to get the best from your<br />

crystal is to ensure that it is cleansed and charged.<br />

As a relatively hard stone of the Moh’s scale of<br />

hardness, Ruby can be cleansed easily in water and<br />

won’t scratch easily so it can be rubbed with a cloth<br />

under the water. Being associated with the sun, I<br />

would leave it out on a warm sunny day to allow it to<br />

soak up the powerful rays to charge it back to its full<br />

intensity.<br />

Peridot is connected to <strong>August</strong> and is one of my<br />

favourite stones. My son brought me back a piece of<br />

volcanic rock from Iceland many years ago which had<br />

little peridot crystals embedded in the basalt rock. It<br />

was truly beautiful. Like Ruby, Peridot is believed to<br />

deliver good health to the wearer but also aids<br />

restful sleep and brings peace to relationships by<br />

balancing both the mind and emotions. It is a really<br />

feel-good crystal and lifts one's mood almost<br />

instantaneously, automatically reducing stress. This<br />

is probably due to it being associated with the heart<br />

chakra due to its beautiful green colour. Peridots'<br />

ability to balance allows us to be our true self within<br />

our environment. It is also a great cleanser and in<br />

times of old, Peridot was believed to repel evil<br />

spirits. It is the perfect stone to use to aid you in<br />

breaking bad habits and setting positive new ones.<br />

Peridot can also be cleansed in water. Rather than<br />

rubbing this stone with a cloth, I would sit it in<br />

running water for a while and then allow it to dry<br />

naturally. This stone would be best charged in the<br />

sun, smudged with sage or buried in the earth for a<br />

short time but avoid significant temperature changes<br />

as it is not as hardy as other gemstones.<br />

John Sjovik<br />

A how-to guide for meetings with Wise Beings in the Spirit<br />

World.<br />

Whenever I have met Wise Beings, they have been quite<br />

unclear in their communication with me.<br />

Keep in mind that they are in the Spirit World, with<br />

reference points that are very different from those that we<br />

experience in our physical life.<br />

The first thing is to find a language that will bridge the gap<br />

between us. Such a language is almost certain to be non<br />

verbal.<br />

The second thing is that Wise Beings are never too keen on<br />

giving you all answers readily served on a plate. So the<br />

advice or support they give can be somewhat difficult to<br />

decode and understand.<br />

The third thing is to find ways to formulate your questions,<br />

wishes and desires in such a way that answers will be<br />

meaningful and possible to implement in your own life.<br />

If I did meet a Wise Being today, they would probably tell<br />

me that I already know the answers. They would confirm<br />

that I already know what to do. Any Q&A session with them<br />

would only serve as a delay for my necessary actions and<br />

also carry the risk of adding confusion and bewilderment to<br />

my already not enough focused mind. Let’s face it, most<br />

people already know what to do. The big challenge is<br />

putting their knowledge into action, to “walk the talk”, as<br />

the saying goes.<br />

My experience is that it is a good idea to simply “hang out”<br />

with Wise Beings and not bombard them with questions.<br />

Respect and patience are particularly good concepts in the<br />

spirit world and in meetings with spirits. Eventually, you will<br />

receive a lot of advice and wisdom.<br />

MUSIC<br />

Jane Cuva<br />

Vocation. Noun. A summons or strong inclination to a particular state or course of action.<br />

I remember clearly the moment my heart spoke to me several years ago (I was running a bath) and it posed the<br />

question - am I putting my gifts to good use? I realised at that moment I wasn’t. But what to do about it?<br />

Two events, one major and one minor provided the answer and became key turning points in my life.<br />

My father, who had had modest success as a singer/songwriter as a young man, was diagnosed with early<br />

onset Alzheimers and his cognitive descent was brutal for me. Singing for him and the other residents in a care<br />

home made me realise the healing power of music and voice on the human soul.<br />

Little did I know at that point that I would go on to collaborate with scientists who would expand my<br />

understanding of frequency, energy and vibration through ancient knowledge, cymatics, sacred geometry<br />

and nature. This knowledge I am now incorporating into my music.<br />


Issue 21<br />

“I would describe my mezzo-soprano<br />

sound as sometimes haunting, always<br />

emotionally charged and definitely<br />

therapy for the soul.”<br />

I dedicated the next 6 years to singing for the elderly and at various community events. This work led to being<br />

asked to sing for 1,000 of the Queen's Staff at Windsor Castle in 2018 and singing the National Anthem with<br />

the Queen’s Household Cavalry Band.<br />

A newspaper article in 2016 about a young 12 yr old boy that killed himself after being bullied at school was<br />

the second turning point. I poured my emotion into writing a song- the track “Arise” was born. Until then I<br />

hadn’t considered I might have a tune of my own to sing.<br />

The tracks “Mayday”, “Quantum Leap” and “Zero Point” were the<br />

result of my own transformation; musically, spiritually and<br />

intellectually; as I sought answers to questions that ultimately led me<br />

back to the realisation that I - WE - are way more powerful as<br />

creators than I had realised.<br />

What’s next? Helping to bring next-gen technology to all who seek<br />

immersive and interactive 3D tools for learning and creativity;<br />

decentralised trading. Sovereignty!<br />

Nasreen Pritchard<br />

These are the words I said to my two teenage<br />

daughters after I’d hidden away for a whole<br />

weekend to write this little book…. “Can you read<br />

this for me please?”<br />

The Book was born a couple of years before I put<br />

pen to paper. An idea, one morning lying in bed<br />

with my cup of tea.<br />

It’s a funny thing, isn’t it? when an idea is born. It<br />

carries so much energy, it’s quite a magical<br />

experience to notice our ideas. Of course, not<br />

EVERY idea makes its way from seed to sapling,<br />

and that’s ok, perfectly normal in fact.<br />

Some ideas are gateways I feel, like a nod to being<br />

on the right path…<br />

I love starting my day with a stare, staring out the<br />

window mostly.<br />

That morning I stared and let my thoughts travel<br />

and organise… a web of words and numbers, lines<br />

and dots… making their connections and<br />

formations as I freed myself from the analytical.<br />

And for my time staring, I was gifted this seed.<br />

It went into my phone ‘Notes’.<br />

It's ok that we have ideas and sometimes leave<br />

them as such. Thoughts as we know, carry an<br />

energetic quality and they are always there. Our<br />

job is to first take time to hear the thoughts and<br />

then discern which ones carry more weight…<br />

literally which ones hold more energy.<br />

We can trust that the important ones, the soul-led<br />

ones, will be speaking gently from the<br />

subconscious and when the time is right, they will<br />

make you notice. Like a persistent tap on the<br />

shoulder, you won’t be able to ignore it.<br />


<strong>Alchemical</strong> <strong>Voice</strong> - L2M - Issue 21<br />

Of course, the book was energy at first, a visual,<br />

like a scene from a movie.<br />

I added words to this energy and realised the<br />

visualisation.<br />

So, I would like to think and hope that this book is<br />

still the energy of that morning staring out the<br />

bedroom window.<br />

A vision of love and stories and connections.<br />

It could have stayed in ‘Notes’ – but this one<br />

ACTualised. It was 100 words on my phone for 2<br />

years before I spent 2 days and turned into 100<br />

pages.<br />

What do you have hiding or brewing in your<br />

Notes?<br />

What seeds are trying to break through?<br />

Is something knocking on your shoulder?<br />

I dare you to turn around and face it…<br />

I want to see it!<br />

“This book is so inspiring and enlightening in such a<br />

beautifully simple format. If I had had the fortunate<br />

pleasure of reading the wisdom in this book as a<br />

teenager, I strongly believe that my life would have<br />

flowed more smoothly and been filled with more joy.<br />

The pages possess the key lessons to appreciating life<br />

to its fullest, all concepts that I was already aware of, it's<br />

just the way they are conveyed in this book enables<br />

them to be easily absorbed and effortlessly grasped, in<br />

such a wonderfully light-hearted and playful manner.<br />

I will be reading this book to my children (before they<br />

are teens!) and I know they will cherish the gifts of<br />

wisdom that are fantastically woven into its pages.<br />

I highly recommend this book to everyone, and I<br />

strongly feel that the world would be a better place if all<br />

schools provided it to their pupils and actively promoted<br />

its life enriching concepts.”<br />

Imagine a Space<br />

<br />

Imagine a Space where kids came to school<br />

Where they learned and had fun<br />

And thought Yoga was cool<br />

<br />

Where Teachers and Students<br />

And Janitors too<br />

All knew the benefits<br />

Of a mindful moment or two<br />

<br />

Imagine a space where a love for oneself,<br />

Was the beginning and ending<br />

Of each book from the shelf<br />

<br />

What if walking barefoot<br />

And eating in Squat<br />

Were written into the timetable<br />

And had a regular slot<br />

<br />

Imagine a space where Teachers came to school<br />

And their day began with a Meditation tool<br />

<br />

To bring awareness to their breath<br />

Feel grounded and alert<br />

To be present for the happenings<br />

From Joy through to hurt<br />

<br />

If downward dogs featured at breaks<br />

And Tree poses before Lunch<br />

Shoulders and jaws may release<br />

Its not just a hunch<br />

<br />

Imagine a space where souls gathered for learning<br />

Encouraged by Unity (yoga) that keeps the wheel turning<br />

<br />

Where listening in and presence of mind<br />

Were taught and valued as skill sets to find<br />

<br />

Imagine this space<br />

On an ordinary day<br />

Where do you sit<br />

What part do you play?<br />

<br />

Imagine….<br />

Imagine a Space.<br />

Imagine a<br />

space<br />

Nikki Marianna Hope<br />

Message from a collective of Beings who have no collective<br />

name as such.<br />

Image: a painting by Nikki Marianna<br />

Hope on 4th June 2010<br />

“We just work together for the greater good of humanity and all<br />

things that come into contact with humanity in any way<br />

whatever. From the tiniest ‘drops’ of water to the greatest<br />

clouds, lakes and seas. From the waters which are underground,<br />

on the ground, within all beings on the physical plane and in the<br />

atmosphere and the galaxies. We speak with one heart and<br />

much love.<br />

The initially restrictive human form often leaves humans<br />

‘struggling’ to make sense of the world(s) around and within<br />

them. It’s ok to feel you are struggling, it’s not an easy path that<br />

you have chosen.<br />

It is a very important and worthwhile path.<br />

As you grow and develop in your understanding of the worlds<br />

around and within you, so that growth ripples out from you<br />

(you don’t need to DO anything – simply BE and allow this to<br />

radiate out around you and within you). It serves a higher<br />

purpose than we can explain simply here. Just know that<br />

although you may feel puzzlement as well as lack of connection<br />

and the motivation to be a human DOING instead of a Human<br />

Being – that’s ok.<br />

There may be times when you are required to be a Human<br />

Doing rather than a Human Being. But it will take some time of<br />

simply Being before you are ready to be Doing.<br />

That said, by Being, you are already Doing a lot!<br />

Take plenty of rest time and gaps-in-between things. It’s during<br />

the time of the gaps-in-between that the ‘magic’ happens. It’s<br />

not really Magic and once it has occurred you will be able to<br />

look back, retrace your steps, and understand what the changes<br />

were that are enabling you to have a ‘new’ and different<br />

perspective on the ‘gaps-in-between’.<br />


Because you live in a society which values ‘Doing’ and of course<br />

‘Achieving’ above all else, it can be a puzzle when ‘Being’<br />

achieves so much more, until the moment you are ready to be<br />

‘Doing’.<br />

We hope this explains a little of what is occurring at this<br />

present moment in time. Simply do your best to keep focused in<br />

the present moment and savour each and every moment that<br />

occurs.<br />

Remember the heady scent of the amazing bluebells in the<br />

natural woodlands, their intense colour – how it changes<br />

depending on whether they’re in the direct sunlight or in the<br />

shade. The depth and vibrancy of their colours in the shade, the<br />

increased scent when they’re in the bright sunlight. See how<br />

the morning dew is held on their petals and reflects everything<br />

around them. Observe how the bluebells absorb the liquid from<br />

each dewdrop and how the dewdrop helps the bluebell to stay<br />

turgid, strong and tall. Have you ever wondered why it is only<br />

the flowers which are blue – it could have been those beautiful<br />

long leaves which were blue as well – imagine that!<br />

It is the same with all life, we can spend so much time longing<br />

for and trying to obtain / become the humans we think we<br />

aught to be or want to be, that we forget how much we already<br />

are. It may not be what we planned to be, it may be better than<br />

our plans could have turned out.<br />

Sending much love to all who read and connect with this<br />

message, from our collective consciousness and the<br />

OMM SETY<br />

Julie de Vere Hunt<br />

Temple of Sety I, Abydos<br />

Egypt is magical, truly. But one woman’s story has<br />

stolen my heart – it’s a love story which started in<br />

Abydos, Egypt over 3,000 years ago around 1300<br />

BC and resumed in the 20th century.<br />

Dorothy Eady was born in London in 1904. At 3<br />

years old she falls down a steep staircase and is<br />

pronounced dead by their family doctor. Her<br />

parents carry her to her bedroom and the doctor<br />

returns an hour later with the death certificate.<br />

Dorothy is found sat up on her bed playing with her<br />

toys.<br />

But from this moment on she is different. She feels<br />

out of place. Aged 7, her parents take her to the<br />

British Museum and she starts running around the<br />

Egyptian figures saying “these are my people!”<br />

By the age of 10 she has become a permanent<br />

fixture and noticed by Sir E.A. Wallace Budge,<br />

renowned Egyptologist and Director of the Egyptian<br />

galleries. He becomes her tutor. She tells him she<br />

will live in Egypt when she grows up.<br />

Aged 18 she falls in love with an Egyptian<br />

postgraduate student and travels to Cairo in 1934<br />

to marry him. The following year she has a child<br />

who she names Sety (much to the dismay of his<br />

family). She starts automatic writing in Demotic<br />

Script. Over 75 nights she is given a piece of her<br />

story.<br />

She is a 15 year old priestess called Bentreshyt<br />

living in Abydos at the time of King Sety I (1306 –<br />

1290 BC). As a priestess of Isis she has to be a<br />

virgin. One day Sety I comes to visit and spies this<br />

beautiful priestess in the garden who he instantly<br />

falls in love with.<br />


Omm Seti healed<br />

people in the village<br />

from spells she<br />

interpreted from the<br />

temple walls<br />

They have a secret affair but she falls pregnant. The<br />

High Priest beats her in order to find out who the<br />

father is and have him put to death. To save him she<br />

kills herself with a dagger in her heart. When Sety I<br />

discovers this he is so heartbroken he does not visit<br />

the temple again.<br />

Fast forward 3000 years Sety I starts to appear in<br />

Dorothy's bedroom. Her marriage fails so she<br />

pitches a tent in the excavations with her baby. She<br />

proves very useful to the Egyptians as she can<br />

interpret the glyphs and is called Omm Sety, or<br />

mother of Sety. She is offered a salaried job in a<br />

library or a pittance working in Abydos Temple. She<br />

accepts the post in Abydos of course, leaving her<br />

son with his father. At this time (1956), Abydos<br />

temple is still half buried but she knows it<br />

backwards. There were 2500 temple walls to be<br />

reconstructed which would have taken +20 years to<br />

reassemble but Omm Sety did it in less than 3 years.<br />

She healed people in the village from spells she<br />

interpreted from the temple walls.<br />

Sety I visits her at night, materialising in the flesh<br />

and they have a physical relationship. He always<br />

leaves before dawn. He calls her Bentreshy. This<br />

relationship continues until her death in 1981 –<br />

although now platonic - he sees her as the beautiful<br />

temple priestess he is still deeply in love with even<br />

though she is now an old woman. He says he is able<br />

to do this from magic he learnt from his carnation as<br />

Sety I.<br />


She asks many questions about Ancient Egypt and<br />

life in Abydos when she was with Sety I. Sety I said<br />

he had waited 3300 years for her to be incarnated<br />

and they would be reunited in Amenti for eternity.<br />

Sety I says, “In Amenti there is no sickness or<br />

physical pain but how terrible can be the pain of the<br />

heart.”<br />

Sety I refers to the undiscovered Temple of Sety I<br />

Treasury and Book of Magic which must never be<br />

found as it could fall into the wrong hands. He urges<br />

Omm Sety to destroy it if it is discovered. She asks<br />

him why he doesn’t destroy it and he replies, “I can<br />

only enter now as an akh (body of light) which has<br />

no power to destroy on this earth.”<br />

Certain priests achieved mastery of their minds and<br />

the laws of nature.<br />

“By their magic, their heka, they put their lives to<br />

sleep. At a future time, decided before their burial,<br />

they would awake, even after thousands of years in<br />

order to teach men the knowledge they possessed.”<br />

This reminded me of Mary Magdalene and Yeshua<br />

who both attended Egyptian mystery schools. Is this<br />

where Yeshua learned to perform miracles?<br />

Yeshua was crucified for using magic to raise<br />

Lazarus from the dead.<br />

Fantastic as the story is, Egyptologists accept that<br />

Omm Sety knew many things she could not have<br />

known without entering some extraordinary state of<br />

consciousness.<br />

Co-author Hanny el Zeini was her close friend<br />

during the many years she lived in the ancient holy<br />

city of Abydos. Under star-lit evenings among the<br />

ruins of ancient temples, Dr el Zeini was her trusted<br />

confidant to whom she revealed her secret other<br />

life in 19th Dynasty Egypt. Shortly before her death<br />

in 1981, she gave him her diaries, which chronicled<br />

her life in two worlds.<br />

Julie de Vere Hunt<br />

This book relates a powerful love story with<br />

fascinating insights into ancient Egypt. It is also<br />

possibly the greatest proof of reincarnation.<br />

But most importantly, it reminds me of something I<br />

have always believed – that love is eternal.<br />

GURUS<br />

Jovi Hoonjan<br />

Have you ever had a session with a spiritual healer and had<br />

the feeling that something didn’t seem quite right during or<br />

after it?<br />

Unfortunately, there are some healers that use their gifts for<br />

wrong. Consciously or unconsciously, they are motivated<br />

solely by personal gain, and much like a con artist, their<br />

targets tend to be open and trusting people who’s energy<br />

empowers these bad actors.<br />

Personally, I believe that we all have a guru inside us - your<br />

personal spiritual advisor, your highest intuition. If that’s the<br />

case, then no-one else deserves to be put on a pedestal as<br />

your guru.<br />

Controversial, I know! However, I truly believe any good<br />

healer would support your spiritual journey by providing you<br />

with the tools to heal yourself.<br />

Any healer who falsely draws you in and states ‘I can heal<br />

you’, is manipulating and interfering in your energy fields,<br />

causing more harm than good. These unenlightened gurus<br />

are mostly steered by ego and driven by monetary gain.<br />

What to look out for<br />

Do you feel or sense someone is holding on to your energy?<br />

Do you keep thinking about them? When they look at you,<br />

are you frozen to the spot? These particular ‘gurus’ are<br />

known as mesmerists. They draw you in with their eyes,<br />

literally mesmerising you! Not dissimilar to Kaa the Snake<br />

hypnotising Mowgli in Jungle Book.<br />

Once they have your attention, it’s hard to let go. They hook<br />

an energy cord into you which you will not be able to<br />

remove easily.<br />

Interestingly, I have had ten clients approach me<br />

independently for help in removing these ‘hooks’ that had all<br />

been placed by the same ‘healer’!<br />


Has a ‘healer’ ever suddenly approached you and said that they’ve<br />

seen an issue with you, stating that their guides have asked them to<br />

help you? This could be a sales tactic to lure you in. A true healer<br />

would never interfere with anyone else’s free will. In other words, no<br />

one should be ‘reading’ or ‘analysing’ anyone else’s energies without<br />

having prior permission. Even our spirit guides don’t interfere with<br />

what we decide unless we ask them to.<br />

a<br />

Have you ever felt an energetic pull towards someone? If yes, this<br />

could mean that you have already been caught – hook, line and<br />

sinker! The ‘healer’ casts a fishing line (the cord) with bait (a spell) on<br />

the hook which then attaches to you making it easier to lure you in<br />

without you even knowing it. The ‘pulling’ feeling you are getting is<br />

the healer plainly drawing you in. The worst thing about this method<br />

is that you end up believing it was all your own idea, “the universe<br />

was telling me to see him/her”. A very manipulative approach<br />

indeed, almost seductive!<br />

Be Discerning<br />

Trust your own personal guidance, your highest intuition and look out for clear signs.<br />

Signs that a ‘healer’ may be unenlightened would be when you have a feeling of being out of control, and a<br />

sense that you are compromised, almost subservient.<br />

Whereas if the healer was perfect for you, you may feel butterflies in your solar plexus or heart – something<br />

exciting is about to happen and your body is happy. A feeling of warmth, comfort and calm. Having neutral or<br />

positive thoughts and an inner knowing of being looked after. Remember you should always be in control<br />

during the session.<br />

There is so much that can interfere with true feelings and there may be a number of combinations of<br />

conflicting messages. It could be the healer is unenlightened, but it could be that you are self-sabotaging. Talk<br />

to someone you trust and read trusted sources such as this magazine. All the articles we publish are heartfelt<br />

and of highest spiritual guidance.<br />

The best way to find a good healer is:<br />

Through recommendations - word of mouth, reviews, and<br />

testimonials. Be careful of fake reviews that the healer has written<br />

themselves or bought.<br />

Check the healer’s website and see how you feel about them. Do you<br />

pick up on their personal message or do you feel there’s a cover up<br />

and they are hiding behind veils of jargon and marketing spiel? Do<br />

you feel nervous as you read through the pages, or do you feel<br />

comforted? Look for the healer’s essence,<br />

Ask questions – if you can’t find the answers on the website, and<br />

you have a genuine question, contact them.<br />

If you prefer to talk to the healer, call them – there’s a lot you can<br />

gain from hearing someone speak.<br />

Carol Coggan<br />

As an Angel card reader and Angel therapist, I use the<br />

cards daily for myself. I use a variety of decks and<br />

recently I have been using Kyle Gray’s deck. The card I<br />

am frequently drawing is Expect Miracles, and I have<br />

been guided to write here about it.<br />

If you know about the Law of attraction, what you<br />

focus on will manifest. There is no judgement in this,<br />

only your own, so if you focus on negativity and<br />

negative situations then you will manifest more of the<br />

same. Similarly, if you focus on positivity, what you<br />

would love in your life, then you will attract this to<br />

you. It’s about vibration. We are all energy and<br />

vibrating at different levels. The Angels vibrate at a<br />

high level, from a position of love. If we are negative,<br />

critical and judgemental then we are vibrating at a<br />

very low level, and attract similar energies to us. Thus<br />

what we focus on we attract more of the same. If we<br />

focus on what we would love, with gratitude, and<br />

belief that it is already on its way, then there is no<br />

“space“ for negativity. The Universe sees you vibrating<br />

at a higher light.<br />

In our focus on what we would love, we have to ask<br />

the Angels/Universe to help and support us in this<br />

dream. We have to listen to their guidance, whether it<br />

be a thought, feeling or sense, and then we take<br />

action. If we just dream with no action then it remains<br />

a dream.<br />

So we know what we want, we focus on 'it' and ask<br />

the Universe for 'it' and the highest good, and we take<br />

steps towards our vision. But then… there is a<br />

throwaway thought “I need a miracle to achieve that“.<br />

This very thought is the counterbalance to your vision,<br />

it is your subconscious/ego letting you know that it is<br />

a dream and not likely. This is why it is so important to<br />

focus on what you would love, rather than what you<br />

think is possible.<br />


The Universe is Infinite and beyond our understanding, but<br />

we do know it operates from love and is wanting for us to<br />

live our best life possible. If we know this and we focus on<br />

our vision and what we would love, then we Expect<br />

Miracles, we expect success.<br />

We trust and have faith in God/Universe that this will<br />

come to us, this or something even better. It may not be<br />

immediately, as there are many factors involved that we<br />

know nothing about, but the Universe will answer our<br />

prayers and our dreams will be manifested. There is a<br />

saying “Let go and let God“. As humans we like to control<br />

everything so when we pray/or ask the Universe for our<br />

dream, we often put conditions on it. We may put<br />

timescales, or say exactly how this is to manifest. This is<br />

not “letting go“, it is not expecting success or expecting<br />

miracles.<br />

When you have focused on your vision, remain focused<br />

and take steps every day in the direction of your dream.<br />

Ask the Angels for the next step, as we may not be able to<br />

see the whole path; if we could we would have travelled it<br />

before now.<br />

The keyword is belief and have faith. Once we have taken<br />

our steps, keep your focus and monitor any thoughts from<br />

your subconscious/ego. Those dismissive statements/little<br />

asides in your head that show you are not fully handing it<br />

over, but keeping some control. If these negative<br />

thoughts/asides come in then use the card and Archangel<br />

Michael-Cancel Clear Delete. This shifts things very<br />

quickly and then once again affirm that you expect<br />

success/you expect miracles.<br />

As I write this, I know the Angels are with me. By<br />

Expecting Miracles and success, it frees up your mind from<br />

all the “what if’s”. You move into clear thinking, focused<br />

and feel so much better.<br />

As you Expect Miracles and surrender all to the Universe<br />

you feel at peace and full of joy. Just look around every<br />

day and see that so many things are miracles provided we<br />

notice them. If you would like to work on this further, then<br />

sign up for my Vision workshop and working with the<br />

Angels - details are on the next page.<br />

When you work with your Angels you make an impressive<br />

team.<br />

Zuzana Nemčovičová<br />

Self Love is what we came here for!<br />

I began “to study myself" since 2015 after a very<br />

painful break-up.<br />

Self-love is a hidden Universal law and there isn`t<br />

another way around it. Fully loving ourselves is a<br />

reflection in our life to taste true happiness.<br />

I/You are the most valuable “project” in life.<br />

Your essence is priceless, don`t you see it? All is about<br />

you, everything is a reflection of YOU. This is an<br />

internal job, nothing from outside unless you are in<br />

need of some guidance from those who have already<br />

elevated “higher”.<br />

Every single “mistake” is a step forward to Do It Again<br />

with the change in our attitude and perception.<br />

Perception is everything. I perceive Self Love as a gift<br />

to Humanity, so “simple”, just to Trust Believe and<br />

Love ourselves. Obviously, this includes “raw inner<br />

work”. Are you ready to face your deepest fears and<br />

transform them into your Inner Power? Our traumas<br />

are “the extra weight” in our bodies.<br />

There isn`t an early menopause – this is a sign that<br />

the body is screaming out loud to look deeper, to be<br />

healed.<br />

Our “programming” is so strong that we keep<br />

forgetting how Powerful We Really Are.<br />

With love<br />

<br />

<br />

Zuzana<br />

a free soul<br />

Instead of listening to ourselves we give away our<br />

power to outside forces as with every fear we do.<br />

Our children are the best teachers, they do reflect US<br />

on many levels<br />

Eleanor O'Rourke<br />

Creative Coach<br />

Eleanor has been a personal and business coach for over 20 years.<br />

She helps people tap into their innate creativity and find their Flow.<br />

We all have a creative spirit, a curious, imaginative part of us that<br />

many of us lost touch with either through willingness to conform,<br />

desire for validation or fear of vulnerability.<br />

<br />

These days we are becoming more aware that our minds are too slow<br />

to cope with the ever-increasing speed at which the world is turning.<br />

We have an epidemic in stress, anxiety and depression. Our old ways<br />

of working are not sustainable. We are entering a different age,<br />

which will require different skills, namely an ability to think on our<br />

feet and roll with the punches.<br />

<br />

When we’re in Flow states we have access to joy, inspiration and<br />

infinite creativity. As such this is our evolutionary future.<br />

Flow has the potential to unite our polarised world. Flow is both magic<br />

and science. It’s magical because more can be achieved with less effort<br />

– time seems to stretch itself; our psychic abilities increase; and<br />

synchronicities abound.<br />

<br />

It’s scientific because this state can be replicated – when we focus;<br />

overcome our self-consciousness; and stretch ourselves just beyond<br />

our skill level.<br />

<br />

Flow without the F*ckery proposes that Flow is our natural state of<br />

being, but we have created barriers preventing us from fully accessing<br />

it. These internal blocks are the learned patterns, familiar roles, and old<br />

stories we continue to live by.<br />

<br />

Once we transform these programs, we become a clear channel for<br />

Flow. Life force energy can move through us without blockages of<br />

fear, self-doubt or procrastination. Our expansion allows us to access<br />

the power of killer creativity and fierce love... and life can become<br />

infinitely more interesting.<br />

John Sjovik<br />

You are the co-creator of your reality. Drum, rattle,<br />

dance, sing and join hands with Spirit, for a cosmic<br />

ballet. Meditate, invite magic and mystery, trust the<br />

Sacred and listen to your forefathers.<br />

Your mind speaks the temporal. Your heart speaks the<br />

eternal.<br />

Just now, a crow called out. It is sitting in a tree close<br />

to my house. Maybe it is establishing territory, saying<br />

hello to a crow friend or simply being happy? What<br />

does an animal say when it is happy?<br />

As I am writing this, a freight train is clunking by,<br />

rattling the rails and creating mechanical music. The<br />

crow is silent.<br />

Those are the sounds of the world, of the ancient order<br />

of nature and of the presence of human strive and<br />

invention, of crows and trains.<br />

Is there co-existence between the two?<br />

collide, in a curdling lack of mixability.<br />

Or do they<br />

There is no sound in space. Sound requires a medium to<br />

be able to travel in waves, with length and frequency.<br />

In space, the primary means of communication is light<br />

and energy. Sound is distinctly Earthbound, for animals<br />

and humans to experience. If there were Martians, they<br />

would not have ears, as ears would serve no purpose on<br />

planet Mars, which has virtually no atmosphere and is<br />

eternally silent.<br />

So when I hear the crow and the train, I realize that I<br />

am a human being enjoying the very unique<br />

phenomenon of being physically alive.<br />


Stretching and expanding your world<br />

When I woke up this morning, I felt like stretching to my<br />

full length. My cat does that every morning and I<br />

wanted to emulate her behaviour. Yet, all of a sudden I<br />

felt a weird and uncanny limitation.<br />

When I tried to stretch to my full capacity, I felt that life<br />

presented too small a room with not enough space. As I<br />

tried to extend and become fuller, I felt an irritation<br />

coming over me. It was as if the world was not big<br />

enough, as if 3 dimensions were too few, as if time – as<br />

we see it – was too limited.<br />

Maybe I need to adopt an alchemical approach to<br />

stretching? Sometimes, you need to change venue in<br />

order to become that which you were meant to become.<br />

I feel like a piano player who realizes that there are not<br />

enough keys on the piano. I need a broader scale and<br />

more notes. By journeying into non-ordinary reality, any<br />

framework is lifted and boundaries disappear. I am most<br />

of all the spirit aspect of myself. The great beyond is<br />

where I can find the unlimited space that I need for my<br />

full expansion. However, I do not have to move behind<br />

the veil to accomplish that; it is enough if I do a little<br />

sideways shimmy and a temporary shift has taken place.<br />

Life is movement and you are in motion. Pay attention<br />

to the importance of balance and harmony as you move.<br />

Harmony – a sense of calm<br />

Harmony can be expressed as an aspiration to allow the<br />

scales to be balanced. That does not mean a continuous<br />

balance, each moment in time. Just as a broken clock<br />

will show the correct time on fourteen occasions every<br />

week, a wobbling set of scales will be in balance – albeit<br />

just briefly and unstable – once every time it swings<br />

from this way to that way.<br />

Sometimes aspiration can be of greater importance than<br />

realization.<br />

You need to be careful with harmony. Does it mean that<br />

you need to match every good thought with an evil<br />

one? Or what is harmony? In art, harmony is often to<br />

follow the rules of The Golden Ratio.<br />


To have a harmonious face, your nose must be in the<br />

right place. On the other hand, it is the flaw that<br />

creates the pearl. The shell must be invaded by a<br />

foreign grain of sand to be able to build mother-ofpearl<br />

around it and create a work of art.<br />

Then what is harmony and why is it important? I would<br />

translate it with a sense of calm, a sense of trust, as a<br />

human, on a human scale.<br />

Think about it. Human life is not necessarily a<br />

continuum. It can as well be a series of events. The<br />

main thing is to understand that it is supposed to lead<br />

forward, to elevate yourself. To reach an ever higher<br />

level, educate yourself, branch out and become ever<br />

more nuanced, complex and multifaceted. To go beyond<br />

the superficial and reach deeper clarity for knowledge,<br />

morals, values, understanding and embracing the<br />

Cosmos.<br />

Or am I overthinking it now? I meditated on these<br />

questions and my spirit guides advised me to be aware<br />

of the physical world but to not pay too much attention<br />

to it. It is ephemeral and will not last. Your strive, they<br />

told me, is to go beyond the visible and tangible to<br />

embrace a universal aspect of a spirit world that<br />

invariably will manifest itself as more true than that<br />

which you can see and touch. Shift your attention to<br />

the otherworldly, the esoteric, to that which belongs to<br />

eternity.<br />

To plant a seed<br />

A single seed can contain a universe. Maybe not in the<br />

physical, literal capacity of the word but more as in<br />

potential, ability and possibility. To nurture the seed to<br />

allow it to grow and be able to offer its full potential,<br />

you need to plant it in the fertile soil of hope and<br />

desire. You need to water it with aspiration and<br />

openness. You need to add fuel in the form of abandon<br />

and acceptance.<br />

As the seed grows, you need to adapt your tendering<br />

and care to allow it to develop, bud, change shape, and<br />

bring forth a new plant, flowers, berries and new seed.<br />

Adaptability is a keyword with a “plant” like this. You<br />

never know beforehand what it could bring you, so<br />

unconditional love is what you most of all should<br />

shower upon it.<br />


Fears and thoughts<br />

I think “fear” boils down to “control” or lack of it. My<br />

own “go-to” behaviour when I feel stress is an urge to<br />

be in control or at least to witness a situation that is<br />

possible to control or is in itself in a controlled state.<br />

That way I can forecast possible outcomes of the next<br />

steps and attach probabilities to them. When all of this<br />

is not the case, I sense something tantamount to “fear”.<br />

Maybe this is a friendly reminder from Spirit – once<br />

again - to trust the Sacred. Understand that you will<br />

never be able to be 100% in full control of any<br />

situation. Break it down into partial situations and<br />

those pieces that really are out of your control will<br />

become smaller and your sense of fear will diminish.<br />

My soul “thinks” on a different plane than my mind. I<br />

want to acknowledge and honour the inner workings of<br />

my soul, respect the interactions with other souls, with<br />

other vibrations and energies. Human thought is not<br />

always conducive to allowing your soul to grow and<br />

expand. It can rather block it; form a hindrance to the<br />

branching out of your soul’s desires and wishes. What I<br />

want to do is to find at least the embryo of a starting<br />

point for respecting that which is of vital importance<br />

for my soul. At first, I may need to gain an<br />

understanding of what that really is... Then I can<br />

assemble the starting points, or one of them, to allow<br />

my soul to soar and rise to even higher levels.<br />

Keep in mind that a “starting point” implies a beginning<br />

and an end. However, that is not how it is. Be careful<br />

with human metaphors. Your soul has already started<br />

and is already on the move. It doesn’t really matter<br />

what “direction” we talk about, “direction” is a safety<br />

catch for confused people. There are no directions in<br />

non-ordinary reality, in the cosmic web. There is<br />

movement and expansion, there is condensation and<br />

refinement. And every point is in the centre.<br />

Your heart will guide you<br />

Everything has a beat, even a heart beat at that.<br />

Background radiation in space, the pulse of a galaxy,<br />

the trembling of a nebula, the dance of a solar system,<br />

the Schuman frequency of our planet, the beat of the<br />

heart in your chest.<br />


My heart is telling me to understand the<br />

communication with all of those different hearts,<br />

from my own to the distant beat of the origin of<br />

the Universe. Everything is connected, all the<br />

beats play in the same orchestra, and they all<br />

speak to each other.<br />

You are your own universe, with galaxies, stars<br />

and planets within you. It is important that you<br />

beat in harmony with the inside as well as the<br />

outside of you. Stop your mind and drop to your<br />

heart, because that is where the work is done, that<br />

is where corporeal life begins and ends. The<br />

chatter of your mind only confuses you. It does<br />

not bring clarity. The rhythmic pace of your heart<br />

is inhabited by wisdom reflected from the multiple<br />

beats it connects to from beyond the Milky Way.<br />

Listen to your heart and you will hear the echo of<br />

the eternal voice speaking wisdom to you. Do not<br />

try to understand it. Just allow the wisdom to sink<br />

into your DNA and permeate your being with<br />

innate knowledge. You will be educated and retuned.<br />

Your heart will guide you in all of your<br />

endeavours.<br />

An Eagle’s view and clarity<br />

The Devil is in the detail but I want to find God. If<br />

I was an eagle, I would see forests and not get lost<br />

amongst the trees. I would see rivers and be<br />

spared the pettiness of streams. I would be<br />

reminded of the absence of borders. I would see<br />

herds of reindeer migrating across icy fields,<br />

strands of dolphin swimming to warmer waters. I<br />

would see cities sprawling like organisms of light<br />

and movement.<br />

If I could fly as a bird, I would try to understand<br />

the greater picture, to cut away the details and the<br />

confusion of the minute. I would search for<br />

understanding of the whole and leave the details<br />

for later. I would learn the importance of general<br />

direction to not get lost in detours. I would see the<br />

target or goal so far away, you cannot see it when<br />

on the ground. Yet it is there and that is where<br />

the importance of “trust” is brought to life.<br />


There is a purpose in your life, even of your life.<br />

You are just not completely aware of it.<br />

It is important to not get stuck, to not draw<br />

conclusions on “wrong” set of presuppositions.<br />

Assumptions can be a dangerous thing, even push<br />

you into a quagmire of incompatible expressions<br />

such as “isn’t it?”<br />

Clarity is not necessarily “to know” but to see<br />

increasingly more of the picture, to understand<br />

that there are signs and indications, to be able to<br />

phrase the ad hoc questions and issues. It is to be<br />

able to map out the area around you in order to<br />

find directions.<br />

For me personally, writing, painting and spiritual<br />

ceremony is a cocktail that will lead forward,<br />

regardless of what direction that may be. That is<br />

my clarity as of now. You, dear reader, need to<br />

find your own clarity.<br />

If there was more time...<br />

If I had one more hour today, or at least a fraction<br />

of it, I would use it to feel. Thinking is an<br />

overrated endeavour and mostly leads to<br />

confusion and headache. So I would spend my<br />

extra time by noticing and feeling. What colour is<br />

the grass outside the window? Do crows have<br />

names?<br />

Time and space are chimeras of the inventive<br />

human mind.<br />

We cannot stand not understanding the world<br />

around us, so we invented “time” and “space”.<br />

Regrettably, an extra hour is also a chimera,<br />

quickly lost in the hubbub of the bewilderment of<br />

daily life.<br />

For me therefore, an extra hour would be<br />

something I could store, like a parcel of energy<br />

saved in my account in the Spiritual Bank. When<br />

withdrawn, it would translate into inspiration,<br />

clarity, focus, freedom and creative expansion<br />

beyond the limits of three dimensional existence.<br />


With an extra “hour”, for all it stands for, I could write<br />

a book, paint paintings with no end or beginnings. I<br />

could speak to the birds in the garden, touch the stars<br />

in the sky and listen to the music of the great mystery.<br />

I could tap into the Cosmic web and surf the waves of<br />

eternity. We can all have an extra hour. Do you know<br />

where to look for yours?<br />

Are you ready for change?<br />

There is no such thing as being ready, being finally<br />

prepared. To believe that you need to be “ready” in<br />

order to begin something is to feed the dragon of<br />

postponement. Life is a perpetuum mobile, it is always<br />

in movement. You will never be ready, finished,<br />

finalised or “done”.<br />

For me personally, it is only a few years since I began<br />

new activities in my life. My professional career in<br />

corporate business came to an end and I took up<br />

painting and writing. Not having to put a lot of energy<br />

and effort into a technocratic work life, I could<br />

develop my interest in spirituality.<br />

What I enjoy most about the process of change is how<br />

it seems to have woken up qualities that have<br />

remained dormant within me, for lack of stimulation.<br />

It is as if I am experiencing an ongoing rebirthing into a<br />

new self, which may not be as “new” as I could easily<br />

think. As much as it is a rebirthing, it is also a<br />

reawakening of something I once was, maybe not in<br />

this life, but in a previous incarnation.<br />

The shift is eternally ongoing, from incarnation to<br />

incarnation, from physical body to physical body, from<br />

spirit form to spirit form.<br />

It is not really about improvement or refinement. It is<br />

about realizing the necessity of flow, of movement.<br />

Fish in the sea need to move in order to breathe. A<br />

fish that stops and remains still in one place will<br />

suffocate and die. So the process is about maintaining<br />

life, as a human and as spirit.<br />

Change and movement are necessary aspects of<br />

vitality.<br />


Be open and unblock yourself<br />

Opportunities<br />

By being open, I will be tuned for giving as well as for<br />

receiving. “Judgement”, “conditions”, “presuppositions”,<br />

“inalienability” and “self-evident” are all expressions and<br />

ideas that will block me to some extent and take away<br />

my ability to remain open.<br />

Stand outdoors at night and look to the heavens. You<br />

will see stars that are millions of light years away. There<br />

is open space between you and those stars, or you<br />

would not be able to see them.<br />

Think about it. You can see light originating a million light<br />

years away with nothing blocking it. That light contains<br />

information, vibration, colour, energy and so much more.<br />

Yet, more often than not, you struggle to keep the space<br />

open between you and another human being standing<br />

only a few feet away from you.<br />

How is that possible?<br />

The stars shine their light on all creatures on Earth. The<br />

sun brings warmth to every human being and animal,<br />

every plant and seed. There is unconditional open space.<br />

Yet, we humans are often quick to create blockages and<br />

congestion of the space between us and others.<br />

There are endless opportunities. The only<br />

hindrance is me. I feel excited about my growing<br />

awareness of this circumstance. Nature is speaking<br />

to me, also time itself as in the past and in the<br />

future. It has taken me a good chunk of a lifetime<br />

to understand this.<br />

I feel a longing to express myself, to find ways of<br />

expression. It is not so much about creativity as<br />

about creating something. There is a difference<br />

between creating and expressing. My focus is on<br />

the latter. There is value in the act of expression<br />

as an endeavour in its own right. If I write a text<br />

and then burn the document, it is somehow all<br />

right. Even if the document no longer exists, the<br />

text I wrote does. I wrote it and the stars in the<br />

sky witnessed me doing it.<br />

As I see it, life has no beginning or ending. From<br />

that viewpoint, there is no source of life. “Life” –<br />

whatever the definition is – has always existed<br />

and always will.<br />

Allow me to wish all of you a wonderful summer,<br />

filled with opportunities to express yourself and to<br />

grow as the beautiful beings you are.<br />

We need to learn from the sun and the stars. By<br />

unblocking myself from others, animals, and the world, I<br />

also unblock myself from my own ideas of shortcomings<br />

and perceived disadvantages.<br />

Openness to the world outside of me will stand in<br />

harmony with a likewise openness to the world inside<br />

me. I will allow myself to live to my own full potential,<br />

without any limitations.<br />

Hamlet enclosed himself within a nutshell to be the King<br />

of the Universe and feel safe. I may have done the same<br />

thing. I feel like breaking out of my shell to be able to<br />

expand to my full capacity and reach beyond my<br />

perceived ability.<br />

So……..what is the ‘Vagus Nerve’?<br />

Your vagus nerve is one of your body's longest and<br />

most complex nerves. It runs from the brainstem<br />

through the face, neck, chest, and abdomen and<br />

regulates a wide range of bodily functions.<br />

This important nerve helps regulate the heart rate by<br />

sending signals to the heart to slow down or speed up,<br />

and plays an important role in digestion, helping to<br />

stimulate the production of stomach acid and digestive<br />

enzymes, and controlling peristalsis (constriction and<br />

relaxation of muscle) in the digestive tract.<br />

The vagus nerve also helps regulate breathing by<br />

controlling the muscles involved in this process<br />

(namely the diaphragm and the muscles that enable<br />

the ribcage to expand). It is also involved in regulating<br />

mood and emotional state, and has been linked to<br />

conditions such as anxiety and depression. Last but<br />

not least it is involved in regulating the immune<br />

system, helping to reduce inflammation and protect<br />

against infection.<br />

As you can see, the vagus nerve is involved in a wide<br />

range of critical bodily functions.<br />

Problems with the vagus nerve can lead to a range of<br />

health issues, including:<br />

Gastroparesis, is a condition occurring when the<br />

muscles in the stomach are unable to contract<br />

properly, leading to delayed emptying of the<br />

stomach. Heartburn and indigestion are classic<br />

signs of Vagus nerve dysfunction.<br />

Obesity, the inability to lose weight can often be<br />

relevant to the Vagus nerve, affecting digestion<br />

and slowing metabolism.<br />

Bradycardia is a condition characterised by a slow<br />

heart rate, typically less than 60 beats per minute.

<strong>Alchemical</strong> <strong>Voice</strong> - L2M - Issue 21<br />

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), is a common<br />

digestive disorder characterised by abdominal<br />

pain, bloating, and diarrhoea or constipation.<br />

Dysfunction of the vagus nerve has been<br />

implicated in the development of IBS, and can<br />

often lead to the development of small intestine<br />

bacteria overgrowth, otherwise known as SIBO.<br />

Depression and Anxiety: Your gut is your ‘second<br />

brain’, and as the Vagus nerve is involved in<br />

regulating mood and your emotional state, its<br />

dysfunction has been linked to conditions such as<br />

depression and anxiety. It can also be affected by<br />

unresolved childhood trauma, injury and illness.<br />

Cardiovascular Disease: Vagus nerve dysfunction<br />

can contribute to the development of<br />

cardiovascular disease, as the nerve plays a vital<br />

role in regulating heart rate and blood pressure.<br />

Dysfunction of the vagus nerve may not always be<br />

the primary cause of these conditions... so it’s<br />

important to note that these conditions may have<br />

multiple causes. However, understanding the vagus<br />

nerve's role in these conditions can be helpful in<br />

developing treatments and therapies which can help.<br />

The standard of care for vagus nerve disorder is<br />

limited. Besides surgery and an implantable vagus<br />

nerve stimulator, not much can be done medically.<br />

However, there are natural treatment modalities that<br />

can restore vagus nerve function. Kinesiology,<br />

acupuncture, meditation, and herbal remedies can<br />

positively affect the function of this nerve, and in<br />

addition have beneficial side benefits that include the<br />

reduction of inflammation, improving digestion, and<br />

enhancing a feeling of happiness and joy!<br />

In Kinesiological terms, the process is to first assess if<br />

there is a Vagus Nerve imbalance - a simple process.<br />

Modulation of neurotransmitter function is also<br />

assessed, as the Vagus nerve depends on a balance of<br />

acetylcholine and adrenaline to function normally. In<br />

an emotional sense, acetylcholine imbalance (relevant<br />

to keeping anger in OR not expressing it<br />

appropriately) can have a major impact on Vagus<br />

nerve innervation, as it is a key neurotransmitter<br />

involved in its activity.<br />

Other therapies that can help with this issue are<br />

Meditation and Herbal remedies.<br />

Unsurprisingly, daily meditation practices elicit a<br />

positive response in helping to restore vagus nerve<br />

operation. Twenty to thirty minutes of meditation<br />

per day has been shown to ‘calm’ the vagus nerve,<br />

so allowing a return to normal function.<br />

Several herbs have been found to positively impact<br />

the vagus nerve. Hawthorn is a berry commonly<br />

used in Chinese medicine, and now more regularly<br />

in Western complementary treatments. Studies<br />

have found that the function of the vagus nerve is<br />

improved by increasing the expression of<br />

acetylcholine receptors in the heart tissue.<br />

Peppermint is traditionally used for digestive issues,<br />

and studies have found that it improves gastric<br />

emptying and reduced symptoms of dyspepsia by<br />

enhancing vagal activity. Jujube is a fruit that is also<br />

commonly used in Chinese medicine. A study<br />

published in the Journal of Nutrients found that<br />

jujube extract can improve the function of the<br />

vagus nerve by increasing the expression of<br />

acetylcholine and nerve growth factor (NGF), a<br />

neuropeptide primarily involved in the regulation of<br />

growth, maintenance and survival of neurones in<br />

the brainstem.<br />

So... getting your Vagus nerve to function optimally<br />

reduces stress and helps your brain work more<br />

effectively… and who doesn’t want that !<br />

MY LIFE<br />

Stacey-Ann Postma<br />

It might sound a bit dramatic, but it’s also completely<br />

true. Let me set the scene. It’s late 2019 and while I<br />

have lightly started down my spiritual path, trying to<br />

surrender to universal guidance, getting the parking<br />

spaces and the green lights, I have a big problem.<br />

Someone who I believed was a mentor and a friend<br />

has been bullying me through stonewalling at work for<br />

months. I’m beside myself, the anxiety is almost too<br />

much to bear, I can’t face going into the office and<br />

when I do I am hiding in a different department to<br />

avoid seeing her. And now they want to make her my<br />

boss.<br />

My life coach suggested a remote session with a<br />

Zimbabwean Shamanic healer who is also a horse<br />

whisperer. I'm immediately intrigued as a horse rider<br />

myself, and I book a session in January 2020. I have no<br />

idea what to expect beforehand and I’m admittedly a<br />

bit skeptical and nervous. During our two hours<br />

together, I go from crying to laughing to doing both at<br />

the same time. It takes her ages to cut all the ties<br />

attached to me. She tells me things about myself that<br />

nobody else could know, and her way of explaining<br />

what she is seeing gives a shape to my feelings that I<br />

couldn’t have come to on my own. I leave the session<br />

quite literally dehydrated from spilling so many tears,<br />

exhausted from the emotional experience, but feeling<br />

quite different. Lighter. That night I sleep well for the<br />

first time in months, without needing to take sleep<br />

aids. The next morning, I wake up feeling like a<br />

different person. More myself than I've been in a long<br />

time.<br />

I'm finally in a place where I feel I can take aligned<br />

actions to find a new workplace where what I bring to<br />

the table, my natural gifts and talents, would be<br />

valued. I notice that I have been saying for a long time,<br />

“If this happens, I am leaving’ and then 'this' would<br />

happen but I didn’t leave.<br />


I just repeated the phrase with another change,<br />

another sign, which would happen, and yet, I would<br />

stay.<br />

I’m done abandoning myself!<br />

I am seeing the signs and listening. Something tells<br />

me to look at LinkedIn. I open the app and see a job<br />

ad. I read the description and think wow, this is<br />

everything I like about my current job, the things that<br />

made me stay, without any of the bits I don’t. I hit<br />

apply. I’m expecting the usual form, attach a cv, etc.<br />

Nothing - it just says thanks you have successfully<br />

applied. It can’t be that easy right? I hit apply again,<br />

thinking maybe there was a glitch. Thank you, you<br />

have successfully applied! I have three interviews in a<br />

week and resign on 8 February 2021.<br />

My new boss who is also a soul sister, a Buddhist,<br />

and the ying to my yang, tells me months later that<br />

they had been looking for someone to fill my role for<br />

EIGHT months. All that time, right from when I got<br />

my first sign, my first ‘if they do this’ from the<br />

universe, my new company had been waiting for me.<br />

A few months later, as a silver lining to the pandemic<br />

and lockdowns, I've saved enough money to put<br />

down a deposit and buy a house in a village outside<br />

Farnham, my dream home. And not long after I<br />

moved in.<br />

I was called to find a Shamanic healer, someone I<br />

could work with in person. Someone nearby. I found<br />

Jovi and oh my greatness am I ever so glad that I did.<br />

I’m not lightly on my spiritual path anymore, I am<br />

running loudly and joyously down it, sharing my love<br />

for spirituality and shamanism and everything it<br />

brings me whenever I can, learning new skills and<br />

inching closer to my purpose which has been calling<br />

me for a while.<br />

I am so grateful to be a part of a spiritual family with<br />

all of you.<br />

OF LIFE<br />

Claire Sparks<br />

When talking about your own or someone else’s<br />

health have you ever said, “That’s just the way I am” or<br />

“They must have a strong constitution”?<br />

What if it wasn’t just the way you are? What if you<br />

could have a strong constitution simply by<br />

understanding yourself according to the science of<br />

life, Ayurveda.<br />

As the ancient healing system of India, Ayurveda is<br />

both a science and an art which can restore balance to<br />

the mind-body state at an individual level.<br />

Ayurveda describes a great intelligence in every living<br />

thing including ourselves. When we know how to tune<br />

in and listen to this intelligence, we can create optimal<br />

health and longevity.<br />

This great intelligence is brought to life through the<br />

three Doshas or ‘constitutions’, namely Vata, Pitta and<br />

Kapha.<br />

Each Dosha is made up of two of the five elements of<br />

nature which pair together to bring different qualities<br />

to our mind-body state.<br />

Vata Dosha comprises the elements of air and space.<br />

Kapha Dosha comprises the elements of earth and<br />

water, whilst Pitta Dosha comprises the elements of<br />

fire and water.<br />

We each have all three Doshas, and therefore all five<br />

elements, within us with proportions varying from<br />

person to person, making our individual ‘constitution’<br />

as unique as our DNA. It is in balancing these<br />

proportions that unlocks a personalised path to a<br />

healthy life.<br />


Based on the Ayurvedic principle of ‘like increases<br />

like’ this varying mind-body interplay of the Doshas is<br />

affected by external influences such as the food we<br />

eat, the work we do and the season we’re in.<br />

If you naturally have a greater proportion of Pitta<br />

Dosha within your unique doshic DNA, you’ll have<br />

more of the elements of fire and water in your mindbody<br />

makeup and you’ll naturally display more of the<br />

qualities of Pitta Dosha including being passionate<br />

and intense, an analytical thinker, a goal-oriented<br />

action taker.<br />

When you layer on external influences such as spicy<br />

foods or the heat of the summer sun, Pitta qualities<br />

within you will increase. If this increase continues<br />

over time, an excess of Pitta Dosha can develop<br />

creating an overall imbalance in your mind-body as<br />

the other doshas become diminished to give more<br />

space to Pitta qualities. When we seek to restore<br />

balance, we welcome influences into our inner and<br />

outer world which bring opposite qualities.<br />

Ayurveda is a health science and healing art<br />

grounded in practical, everyday life. By focusing on<br />

internal qualities and external influences of the<br />

doshas, we can influence our unique mind-body<br />

balance to live a healthier and happier life.<br />

<strong>Alchemical</strong> <strong>Voice</strong> - L2M - Issue 21<br />


SUNDAY<br />

Hannah Gauss<br />

I have met death in many disguises, but never the same way<br />

twice. The last time was on 5th March at eight-thirty pm.<br />

Death came quietly, and with more love than I ever felt in my<br />

entire life.<br />

x<br />

On this Sunday, I held my grandmother’s hand, walking<br />

alongside her to the final point of her existence. A space<br />

stretched with expectation and reminiscing stories. Her time<br />

had come, and I was her Deathwalker. Death patiently stood<br />

waiting in the corner. A sombre presence that had only one<br />

irreversible purpose.<br />

When Death finally stepped forward, the veil separating our<br />

world and the unseen slit open, and time was still. Through it,<br />

love spilled into the room, and into every cell, every bone and<br />

dark place of the mind.<br />

Here we were, at the edge of our physical existence, looking<br />

into the next.<br />

Death was many; a sea of light beings and known faces from<br />

old family photos. Everyone was excited to welcome her<br />

Spirit. There was no judgement, no hellfire, only this deep<br />

love. The kind that accepts us in whatever state we are in and<br />

many look for their entire lives.<br />

It seemed Death never comes as expected. It was not a<br />

despair-filled void missing an exit sign. Instead, Death was the<br />

sacred gatekeeper of the final journey back to our origin.<br />

My grandmother had this keen awareness of her own<br />

mortality. She never held onto anything that was not meant<br />

to be, carried no regrets for the things that were not going so<br />

well, and never feared her own ending. As a matter of fact,<br />

she counted on it. Underlying this attitude was a sense of<br />

understanding that our existence is based on the cycle of<br />

ending and beginning.<br />


Death drives the daily regeneration of our cells, inspires<br />

us to new inventions and deepens our connections. In a<br />

way, our mortality ensures the survival of our species,<br />

and gifts this life meaning, even in ways we did not<br />

anticipate.<br />

<br />

You see, every life creates stories. All of them combined<br />

from the meaning behind our human existence on this<br />

planet. They are the guidelines through which we make<br />

sense of this experience. In time, we pass these on to<br />

the next generation who will use them as the foundation<br />

to mould the world in their own image. This is how we<br />

continue as humanity; through our stories and by<br />

allowing new ones to be written.<br />

But maybe the most honest realisation we have in all of<br />

this is the one about ourselves. When we face a final<br />

situation with no alternative solution our coping<br />

mechanisms are disabled. Death is a mirror, reflecting<br />

back the truest feelings about our existence. Sometimes<br />

for better and sometimes for worst, but always with the<br />

understanding that life is a precious gift with a time<br />

limit. And although we cannot live in this clarity forever,<br />

a moment of realisation has the power to birth a whole<br />

new consciousness. I was never as accepting of myself<br />

and my life as when death came knocking on the door of<br />

those I loved dearest.<br />

In that moment, Death turned around and smiled: “You<br />

see I was never the ending”. I felt my grandmother’s<br />

hand slipping. And though the room was as quiet as it<br />

had been before, nothing was ever the same again.<br />

Because in our universe, Death and love were created at<br />

the same time, and one never arrives alone.<br />

Hidden in the Mist<br />

<strong>Alchemical</strong> <strong>Voice</strong> - L2M - Issue 21<br />

Susan always knew she could sense<br />

things that she couldn't see, so when her<br />

husband James starts to act strangely is<br />

there more to his behaviour than meets<br />

the eye?<br />

With her daughter also starting to act<br />

strangely, Susan's nerves are on a knife<br />

edge, having lost all of her self-esteem<br />

at her husband's hands, not knowing<br />

where to turn and with echoes of the<br />

past still clinging persistently to her<br />

home.<br />

Susan instinctively knows that<br />

everyone's survival depends upon her.<br />

Will Susan be able to save her family<br />

from the malevolence which threatens<br />

to engulf them all?<br />

Hidden in the Mist is a supernatural<br />

book that is loosely based on some reallife<br />

experiences that Sue personally had<br />

in her childhood.<br />

“I read Hidden in the Mist in less than a<br />

week as I got gripped by the characters<br />

and the storyline - really needed to know<br />

how it was all going to turn out! I enjoy a<br />

good ghost story and this was a really<br />

good ghost story.”<br />

Pulling out all stops in her debut work of fiction, Sue Penney’s Hidden in the Mist is a<br />

ghostly tale par excellence.<br />

Aware of her own personal supernatural abilities since the age of three, the author<br />

draws on real-life events she experienced as a child to give Hidden in the Mist an<br />

authenticity and scare factor that plays with your mind from the outset. Adding further<br />

to its spooky credentials, the front cover is illustrated with an image of the actual house<br />

in which the author first experienced the paranormal.<br />

Worthy of a solid ten out of ten for its accomplished plot, pace and the fear it evokes,<br />

Hidden in the Mist is most definitely one to read with the lights on full."<br />

Life behind<br />

the mask<br />

<strong>Alchemical</strong> <strong>Voice</strong> - L2M - Issue 21<br />

A compelling story of a young mother, happy in her<br />

first marital home, running her successful dance school.<br />

Everything changed one fateful night; following a<br />

severe car accident, her husband developed paranoid<br />

schizophrenia. A year of desperation, misery attempted<br />

murder, a shooting and a suicide followed.<br />

A second husband with rage issues, led to physical<br />

abuse of her son and a life of fear. Follow her fight to<br />

protect her children and explore the horrors they faced<br />

growing up. Years remaining silent for fear of reprisal<br />

and the guilt carried from seeing the effect it had on<br />

her children.<br />

Another near fatal car accident and the unexplained<br />

miracle rescue. An illness that drained her body, stole<br />

her career and left her bedridden. This is one woman’s<br />

battle against insurmountable odds. The will to survive,<br />

protect, overcome years of torment, fear and<br />

oppression and the day she discovered the strength<br />

within, to fight back and step out from ‘BEHIND THE<br />

MASK’<br />

I spent most of my working life as a professional dance instructor, designing and<br />

producing theatrical shows for children. When a severe back injury resulting<br />

from a car crash forced me into early retirement, I started looking for new ways<br />

to be creative and find a new outlet in life to express myself. Writing filled this<br />

void and allowed me to clarify, accept and eventually script what has happened<br />

to me over the years, which makes for a compelling and at times, difficult read.<br />

For a very long time I tried to come to terms with what I have been through and<br />

how it has affected both me and my family. Having finished this book, I am now<br />

able to look back and reflect on my life in a way I never thought possible. The<br />

sheer number and variety of traumas I have experienced is almost<br />

incomprehensible and the horrors of some of the situations are a lot to take onboard.<br />

These have shaped me into the woman I am today.<br />

Within the book you will experience my life in its rawest form including a suicide,<br />

a ruined career, a lengthy lawsuit, a terrible marriage, an abusive husband,<br />

terrified children, a debilitating illness, broken families, dreams shattered, hope,<br />

fear, and impossible choices. Only when you are at your lowest, when you feel<br />

that life has taken too much from you, do you look deep inside yourself and<br />

make a choice. This story is my choice.<br />

Commissions accepted<br />

I'm an acrylic fluid artist, living and working in Dorset. I've always<br />

been a creative, be that musician, sewing, craft, art... I just love all<br />

things creative. When I was introduced to fluid acrylic art however,<br />

I was absolutely sold! It is now my passion along with acrylic art,<br />

and I hope that comes across in the artworks that I create.<br />

It began as a hobby... My own 'therapy', as a switch off from my<br />

hypnotherapy work. It was lovely to do something just for me. But<br />

then when I showed my work to a couple of friends, they loved<br />

them and suggested that I start selling them! This was all in the car<br />

park of a garden centre... At which point a customer walked past<br />

and said 'ooh, those are nice!' and that was it... PilchArt was born!<br />

I then got asked to do my first commission piece, the largest<br />

painting I had ever done. Then another and another... And on it<br />

went! Just incredible really.<br />

My work has progressed, grown and developed and continues to do<br />

so, which I love. The process never stands still for me and I just<br />

can't learn or try enough!<br />

So many people asked me to teach them how I do it, and such was<br />

the demand, that I created Studio PilchArt! I now run 3-hour and<br />

full-day beginner fluid acrylic art workshops and I absolutely love it!<br />

Most people come in and state that they aren't creative at all and<br />

then create fabulous pieces! With the right guidance and support, I<br />

believe anyone can be creative, and I love creating the atmosphere<br />

in which to do so. I find many people become very quiet as they are<br />

concentrating so much and I've heard it called 'hypnotic' several<br />

times which is a wonderful parallel!<br />

To be able to share it with others has been the greatest gift of this<br />

whole journey and I cherish all that taking up art has given me.
