The nights are drawing in and we’re making the most of the last few days of sun. It’s the New Moon in Virgo and the Autumn Equinox this week, so it seems like a great time for reflection and planning the last few months of the year before winter hibernation.
We’re into our 4th year already and today I’ve been reflecting on how Elemental Changes has grown and evolved over the last few years.
You may remember me saying at the start of this year that 2017 is the beginning of a 9-year cycle and time for new beginnings. Of course, new beginnings often emerge after deep, painful endings, and that’s been my experience this year. In the space of 6 weeks I made the heart-breaking decision to end my long-term relationship, started a new part-time contract with a mental health charity and relocated Elemental Changes at very short notice.
My emotional resilience was tested to the limit but through it all I continued to trust the Universe and go with the flow, which certainly helped me keep my sanity! It reminded me that we’re never given any obstacle that we can’t overcome and that difficult endings can lead to amazing new beginnings.
Elemental Changes moved home in June and are now settled in our own holistic healing, retreat and retail space at 17 Station Road, Whitley Bay, NE26 2QY – just down from the metro station with plenty of on street parking. (Map and directions here)
Over the last few years I’ve had the joy of using Reiki, Tarot, Meditation, Hypnotherapy, NLP, Past Life Regression and Inner Calm mentoring to support people to make amazing changes in their lives.
I’ve worked with people living with dementia, PTSD, fibromyalgia, autism, back pain, bereavement, relationship issues, fertility issues, pregnancy, anxiety, depression, and stress (to name a few), as well as people who feel lost in the world and are seeking clarity, direction, and purpose in their lives.
I absolutely love my work and am now in the privileged position of continuing my one to one work and training the next generation of Reiki Healers who wish to work from the heart with integrity and love. The new space lends itself perfectly to workshops and courses as well as one to one sessions, and I look forward to welcoming you there soon. If the door is open you’re always welcome to pop in for a chat over a complimentary herbal tea, or to browse our range of crystals, jewellery, candles, holistic and shamanic products!

There are exciting also new additions to the workshop schedule to take us into the Autumn season and beyond.
The Wild Woman Project
Earlier this year I trained with women from around the world as a Wild Woman Project Circle Leader. This international network of circles gathers each month on or around the New Moon, in our local communities. Inspired by a Theme (which changes each moon) we Meditate, Inquire, Share & Create Intentions.
Our New Moon Women’s Circle starts this Friday. The theme for the next 12 months is “Whole Body Whole Earth” and will be a soul deep exploration of ourselves and our connection to Mother Earth.
Moon by moon we will turn our attention toward different parts of the body and explore and feel them from the inside out. We will create space for women to be fully in their own skin and cultivate a deep embodied presence, sensitive to the depth of our feelings about our own bodies and our place in the world.
These monthly groups also tie in with my new course, Mind Body Spirit Love, a nurturing course based on positive psychology, NLP and Hypnotherapy.
In the weekly sessions, you will learn how you can love yourself as you are right now, develop self-esteem, confidence and self-worth, and how you can lovingly change your life for the better in the months to come. More details of this exciting and innovative new course will be coming in the next email.
Luscious, spicy hot chocolate, meditation and connecting in circle to open our hearts and set intentions. Our Sacred Cacao Ceremonies have proved to be very popular this year and the next one is on 1st October 2017. You can find out more and book your place here…
If you’re drawn to learning Reiki for your own personal and spiritual growth, or to start a new career, then check out my blog next week when I’ll be posting my top 10 reasons for learning Reiki.
Our Reiki Level 1 and 2 training takes place every month. You can find out all the details and dates for Level 1 here and Level 2 here. Seichem training is also available and is usually scheduled on request.
Meditation and Mindfulness
Our gorgeous Wednesday Meditation group has celebrated its 3rd birthday and is continuing to welcome new members who are looking for some midweek relaxation. All the details can be found here, and if you can’t make it to a session you may wish to try this Autumn Leaf meditation yourself.
If you’re interested in Mindfulness and don’t know where to start, we have an 8-week Mindfulness course starting on 9th January, with taster sessions on 22ndOctober and 26th November for people who are curious about using Mindfulness to manage stress and anxiety.
The taster sessions cost £15 which will be deducted from the cost of the 8-week course if you book your place on the day. More details can be found here, and details of the full course will be in the next email.
So many of you have asked for Tarot Training and the good news is that our exclusive Beginners training course is coming in 2018. If you’d like to register your interest and be the first to hear about the early bird discount, please let me know.
Well, that turned into rather a long message! I hope it’s been of interest to you and that I’ll see you soon…
