Listening to the Signs

I’m working hard on getting the next class finished and available in the online Earth Angel Training Academy, and whilst in the middle of writing, my phone decides to call my friend for me. She didn’t answer, but taking this as a sign that maybe I should talk to her, I dialled her landline, and when she checked her mobile, the call was missed at 11:11am. (Which wasn’t the actual time, her phone is ten minutes fast!) Seeing repeated numbers is often a sign from the Angels, so we chatted for a bit, and during our short conversation, she inspired a wonderful idea for the online classes, a new dimension to the information that I hadn’t considered before.

It made me wonder about all the little nudges, feelings, whispers that I probably ignore on a daily basis. I have decided to be more aware and notice things more. Not that I want to spend every moment analysing everything, but just that if you are open to synchronicities and signs, then things are likely to flow better, and great ideas are likely to show up. I do believe that these nudges are coming from our Angels, and this quote from I’m Here pretty much sums it up.

I'm Here

I’m excited to expand the Academy, and am really pleased with all the sign-ups so far! You can still get a free download of The Earth Angel Training Academy and a discount code for the first class at the Academy, simply by expressing your interest in joining to Academy here.

I’m holding the first live hangout of the students on Sunday the 7th February at 8pm, and at 4pm the same day, I am holding a Q & A hangout for anyone who is considering joining, but has questions they’d like answered first!

Better get back to work, here’s a little snapshot of my desk today. Loving my salt lamp from Peace of Stone!

Want to Attend the Earth Angel Training Academy?

Earth Angel Training Academy Logo

It’s tough being an Earth Angel sometimes, and despite having had training on the Other Side before arriving, there are some things that are still difficult to deal with. Which is why I have created a seven week course (with the assistance of amazing Earth Angel Andrew Embling), consisting of seven evening classes, that are based on the classes taught at the Earth Angel Training Academy on the Other Side. (Which you can read about in the book)

The classes can be taken individually or you can attend them all! Each one will go into depth on the topic, and will include an activity and useful techniques and actions you can take into your life to improve your experience here on Earth.

The classes will be running in two locations before Christmas, starting on Thursday the 15th October in Harts Barn in Longhope, and then on Monday the 2nd November in Peace of Stone in Monmouth. In the new year, there will be two more locations, and later in the year it will be developed into an online video course so that no matter where you are in the world, you can take the Earth Angel Training Academy classes!

The aim is to have fun, to create a community and to learn things that will assist your missions here on this planet.

You can check out the website, where you can register your interest, and book your spot on the course!

Back to School

Or rather, back to business! After a rather slow August, in terms of getting anything done, there is a definite feeling of really getting down to business this morning! Got up at literally the crack of dawn, and have already designed a flier, written a thousand words, made biscuits, created vouchers, sent some invoices and done the washing up.

It’s only 10am.

If I did this every day, I would really be on fire! Thing is though, I’m not normally an early bird, I’m very much a night owl, so this is a rarity, but I am going to make the most of it!

So, the reason for bothering you on this beautiful September’s day? To let you know that I will be offering Oracle Readings at two of my favourite venues – Peace of Stone in Monmouth and Zenith in Leominster. The first one day is in Peace of Stone, this coming Saturday, the 12th. I will be available for readings between 11am and 4.30pm. Then on the 21st September, I’m headed to Zenith in Leominster, where I will be offering readings all day and then doing a talk in the evening.

The final date in September is Saturday the 26th, back in Peace of Stone. I plan to do some dates in October too, to celebrate the release of The Twin Flame Resurrection (release date will be announced this week along with the cover reveal!) There is also something else that’s very exciting happening in October… will write a post all about it this week too! (Apologies for overuse of exclamation marks, can you tell how excited I am and how much chocolate I’ve already eaten today??)

Twin Flame Retreat Launches

On Saturday the 25th April, I was in Peace of Stone in Monmouth all day offering Oracle Card readings. I met some lovely new Earth Angels, and was pleased to see some who had attended the talk at Harts Barn! Have had some wonderful feedback so far and am pleased to have helped. Sold a few copies of the new book, and caught up with my lovely Faerie friend, Niki, before I leave for Scotland.

Peace of Stone

Fun-loving Earth Angels!

My beautiful Angel friend and editor, Liz Lockwood, also joined me for the day, and it was brilliant to have a good catch up and to present her with a signed copy of the book that she now jointly owns the copyright of.

Then yesterday I spent the day and evening in Zenith in Leominster. I did several Oracle Card readings, met some wonderful Earth Angels and then had a fantastic evening chatting about Twin Flames. One lady who had a reading with me in March has now read all of the books in the Earth Angel series! I said I’d better get on with the next one!

 

 

All in all, I’ve had a great time this month launching my new book, and have had some great reviews and thoughts on it so far.  The biggest question I’ve had so far is ‘When is the next one being released?!’

I promise I will let you know the answer to that as soon as I know!

A huge thank you to everyone who has hosted me this month, I really appreciate it.

The Twin Flame Retreat is Now Available!

You can now purchase your copy of The Twin Flame Retreat on Amazon! It’s available on Kindle and in paperback, and I’ve signed it up to Matchbook – so if you buy the paperback directly from Amazon, you can download the Kindle version for free!

Just today I have taken delivery of the first printing of the new book and the copies look awesome:

 

 

book 1

book 2

I am celebrating the official release on the 25th April by doing Oracle Readings in Peace of Stone in Monmouth between 11am and 5pm, and then will be talking about Earth Angels and Twin Flames and having some nibbles in the evening! I am very excited because my incredible editor and friend Liz Lockwood will be there! For those of you who have read the books so far, she is very much the Angel called Beryl, who is a main character called Beatrice in The Twin Flame Retreat!

All the details of the launch event are on the poster:

Going with the Synchronicitous Flow…

Yes I did just make up the word ‘synchronicitous’ I liked the way it sounded!

During my weekly skype meeting with my mastermind group, I said that instead of trying to implement a routine or structure to the week, and beat ourselves up if we don’t manage to achieve all of our weekly goals, we should go with the flow. That if anything unexpected or unplanned came up, we should just go with it, and see what happens, rather than trying to fight it or be irritated by it.

Well, I have certainly had to go with the flow this week!!

On Monday, I was steaming through my goal list, really getting things done, when bam! I knocked my glass of water onto my keyboard. Cue swear words, masses of tissues and the hair dryer coming out! I thought I may have gotten away with it, but then my keys started to do funny things, and I started to freak out!

Thoughts that ran through my head – I haven’t got time for this… I can’t afford to buy a new laptop or have it repaired… I don’t want to lose any of my work on the laptop… etc.

Basically, all my thoughts were based on fear and lack. To counteract those thoughts, I kept saying to myself – It’ll be fine, there is a reason for everything, go with the flow etc. I also asked the angels for help.

After taking the internal keyboard out and drying underneath, the laptop wouldn’t start at all, so I called a local computer repair centre and asked if they would have a look. I went there immediately, and he looked at it straight away. By now I had calmed myself a little, and he quickly deduced that I had killed the keyboard. He went online to see about ordering a new one, and it was actually very inexpensive to replace. Cue sigh of relief. He leant me a plug-in keyboard while I waited for the new one to be delivered and then I went into town to see my friend in Peace of Stone.

We chatted for a while, then I suddenly realised how hungry I was. I thought about going to the chippy, but for some weird reason, got back to the car having forgotten to go in there. So I decided to stop by the village shop on the way back and get some eggs to make courgette pancakes instead.

When I got to the village shop, I paused to read the notices on the board, which I don’t normally do, and I saw an ad looking for someone to create videos and presentations. I took down the number, called it up, and ended up meeting the guy on Tuesday and getting the work.

So the moral of this long tale of seemingly mundane incidents and decisions?

By going with the flow, and staying as positive as possible, a seemingly ‘bad’ incident, led to a great opportunity. It also made me take some time out from working to clear out my office, as one of the reasons I knocked my water over was due to the cluttered desk and sheer amount of stuff everywhere. So I now have a lovely tidy office, and I even rearranged it so the room looks twice as big, and I now have a wonderful view (see photo) It also reminded me to back things up more often, just in case.

My new view!

My new view!

And as an extra bonus, I now have a super clean keyboard with no dust or bits of food stuck between the keys!!

 

 

PS. I do have pictorial evidence of my cluttered office, and of what it looks like now, but to be honest the before photos are just too embarrassing to post, which is why I have posted the deer picture instead!

Calling all Angels…

…Faeries, Mermaids, Old Souls, Starpeople and Leprechauns!

I’ve written this blog post several times in my head, which is where I would rather it stay, but I know that I need to actually type it and put it out there. Because this blog post is about the truth. Which is that I need help.

You would think that by the time I’d written and published my 7th book, (not to mention helped to publish several books for other authors) that I would know how to market them. That I would have an established way of launching my books so that they made an impact, that I would be selling hundreds, if not thousands of copies.

But the truth is, I’m just as bad at marketing now, as I was when I began. Why? Because traditional marketing does not feel authentic to me. I am a great believer that people find a  book at the right time for them to read it, and if they’re constantly blasted with messages of – you must buy this book right now – then it will just irritate them if it’s not the right time.

I figured it might be a good idea to get some help with the marketing, so I found a PR company who would write a press release and send it out to journalists for me. They wrote the piece, and though it sounded good, in all honesty, I couldn’t read it without giggling, because it bigged me up so much, that it seemed a little ridiculous. At the time, I was still in – ‘this is how you market stuff, you make it look like the next big thing’ mode, and so I approved it for them to send. Didn’t receive a single email, call or query about it, and to be perfectly honest, I don’t expect to. Why? Because it was not authentic. If you would like a good giggle yourself, please check it out on the only place I’ve seen it online. (Click here) (Just to add, the company were great to work with, very professional, and very good at what they do. I have no complaints about the service I received)

I’ve been doing the Brene Brown eCourse, and one of the main threads (because that has been her main focus for her research) is vulnerability. We build armor around ourselves, making up stories about things, so that others perceive us in a certain way. I know that there are a few people out there who assume that I am selling loads of books and make a ton of money. And though it’s nice that they think highly of me and my books, it’s just not the truth.

So back to what I said before. I need help. I know there are readers out there who have read and loved my books, who have not written reviews or recommended them to friends. If you are one of those people and you are able to, could you please do that for me? Reviews on Amazon really do make a difference, and you can write one there even if you bought the book directly from me or from a shop I sell them in. If you don’t have an Amazon account, then you can post a review in the comments below or on Facebook.  If you are on Facebook, you can like my page and share it with others who might like my books.

If you haven’t bought your Christmas presents yet, you could buy a copy of one of my books as a gift. With the new covers, the Earth Angel books now look really awesome. You can also still buy the Oracle Cards that accompany the books, directly through me on my website, or from Peace of Stone in Monmouth.

All of these things help to just make my books a little more visible and accessible, and word of mouth recommendations are far better than this false marketing that I have been attempting to do. After all, I know that my books will not appeal to everyone, I don’t want to sell millions of books only for them to be read by just a few. I write books for them to be read, for them to help people. But I can only do that with the help of my readers. To make it easier to share the links to my books on amazon, I have universal links to them all, which make it easier when tweeting or posting on Facebook. I’ve listed the links below. Even a tweet every now and then helps 🙂

Thank you for reading, and for letting me share this with you. I don’t find it easy to ask for help, and to admit that I don’t know how to do something, but I can’t keep on pretending like it’s all easy and taken care of. And as much as I wish I could sometimes, I really cannot do it all on my own.

Twas the Night Before the Launch…

And Michelle was ridiculously excited!

In just a few hours, The Other Side will be officially launched into the world and I am very excited, though a little nervous at the same time! Having only finished writing this book 7 weeks ago,  it feels like it’s been a crazy sprint to bring it to publication.

Today I recorded a couple of videos to post on the page of the Online Launch Party on facebook tomorrow (please join us!) and I will also be posting the Book Trailer I created for my books and there will be some interactive stuff, so check it out and join in 🙂

There’s still time to enter the Rafflecopter draw – you could win a signed set of the Earth Angel Books!

I will be having a second Launch at Peace of Stone in Monmouth on Tuesday the 26th November at 7pm. It’s a join launch with Adrian Incledon-Webber. His book – Heal your Home – is a must-have for every home. There will be drinks and nibbles and everyone is welcome to join us.

In case you’ve managed to miss it so far, here is the beautiful cover for my new book – (yes, I really am over-excited!)

The Speed of Change

Mating Butterflies

I know that I am not the only one who has noticed just how quickly life seems to be changing at the moment. To me it feels as though my life has been a constant series of changes since around 2006. More has happened in my life in the last 7 years than happened in the previous 22 years. Why is this? Is it simply the idea that time speeds up as we age, or is it more than that? Because it is not just that things are changing quickly, but that things and situations are being rapidly manifested.

Just four days after writing about Twin Flame Relationships, everything changed for me.

I met up with my own Twin Flame, for dinner and to chat. Despite not having been together in a relationship for more than 6 months, we still missed each other’s company. He was the one who had sent me the video on Youtube of the stages of a Twin Flame relationship. He had recognised our relationship in the patterns described, and thought I would find it interesting. We talked all evening, and met up a couple more times over the course of the following week, and by the end of the next weekend, (14th July) we were back together. He asked me to move in with him and so here I am, just 20 days after writing about getting a second chance to be with a Twin Flame, with my Flame, living the life that I had always wanted to live.

Did I manifest it? Or were we fated to get back together? I was only in the area because my dear Faerie friend from Peace of Stone had invited me to stay with her for the week. What if I had refused the invitation? Would my reunion with my Flame not have happened? Or was it because I chose a parallel universe where we were together? Have I skipped to another dimension, another reality?

I suppose the real question is, does any of that matter? I had hoped that perhaps I would be able to offer some guidance and wisdom to other souls out there who know their Flames but are not with them. I guess all I can say is – if it is meant to be, then it will be. And don’t hold on to the past. It was only when I truly and completely let go of the idea of being with my Twin, only when I accepted that it may well never happen, cut all energetic cords and ties to him, that it finally did happen. I was willing to move on, to live my life without him, and to make the best I possibly could with what I had.

So perhaps gratitude for whatever we have in our lives, even if it’s not what we really want, is the key to manifesting what we do really want.

What do you think?
