Manifesting

What does it mean to show up and do the work?

This week on social media I posted about “showing up and doing the work”.

A lot of people resonated with the post and I had a bunch of DMs from people saying things like - “thanks for the reminder, I haven’t been showing up like I want to”, and I also had a few asking me what it actually meant to show up and do the work.

Good question!

It’s one of those phrases that’s thrown around a lot in spiritual and self help circles, so I thought I’d throw my two cents in and let you know what it means to me (because this stuff always means something different to each of us!) to show up and “do the work”.

As someone who does spiritual work (and writes YA indie novels!) for a living, it’s kind of my job to tune in and pass on information that comes through. Whether that’s in a one on one session, or through something I feel called to share on social media or on my blog.

When I say something like “this came through in my meditation” or “my guides have been telling me this” people often ask how they can receive the same kind of downloads and intuitive hits.

The answer is - show up and do the work.

This is what showing up and doing the work looks like! From the #  MoonchildTarot   x

This is what showing up and doing the work looks like! From the #MoonchildTarot x

For every one time I go into meditation and fly off to the Sirius star system and get some download that gives me a huge insight and majorly shifts things for me there are 100 times I show up and I just stay on planet earth. (Which is still cool btw, and sometimes very much needed!)

the more I show up and do the work the easier it gets to chat with my guides, hear what they have to say, know what my spreads mean, visit higher dimensional realms and know what my next steps are!

Someone sent me a DM and said that they were worried they would show up and still nothing would happen. The thing is though, showing up is the reward in itself.

When you are the type of person that shows up for yourself, for your heart, soul and spiritual journey, when you show up for your dreams, you can’t lose. Even if you don’t get exactly what you wanted, becoming that person, that’s a huge reward in itself.

Here’s a simple of list of practical ways you can show up and do the work:

  • Develop a consistent spiritual practice

  • Meditate every day!

  • Journal

  • Live consciously

  • Help other people

  • Do shadow work (look at your own “stuff” and work through it!)

  • Pull your own cards daily to help you tune in

  • Read spiritual books

  • Take workshops and courses - Woo Woo 101 is a great place to start!

  • Create some routines and structure

  • Practice self-love on those days when it’s all too hard to show up (practising self-care is part of showing up!)

  • Join The Circle for resources to help you and support on the path!

  • When your guides give you a nudge or some guidance, follow it!

  • However you show up and do the work, do it regularly!

Most of all, make sure you are showing up and doing the work in the way that works for you and your life. There is no right or wrong way to show up. You know if you’re doing it or not!

If you’re still not sure how to start showing up check out my classes and The Circle membership to help you get on track! Or come and join the totally free Spiritual Journey Pitstop group and chat to like-minded souls about the spiritual path!

With so much love and light,

New Moon Magic Spread for Tarot or Oracle

New Moon Magic Tarot Spread

I just love those new moon vibes! And one of my fave ways to connect with the energy of the new moon is through a bit of card slinging!

So light your candles, grab your decks (you can use tarot, oracle, New Age Hipster InstaOracle or whatever you have to hand!) and let's make some magic!

Oh, and check out the New Moon Manifesting spread too if you like! 

New Moon Tarot Spread with the Spirit Speak Tarot

1. How to ground your magic

This card will give you some insight into how to ground your energy, ground into who you are and what you really want. Basically, it's about getting yourself in the right space to make magic!


2. What to clear to make way for the new

Before you start calling in the new, it's always good to identify what old wood needs to be cut away, what space needs to be cleared and what no longer serves you.


3. How to connect to your power this new moon

Making magic works best when we can feel confident and worthy! This card will give you some insight into how to stand in your power so you can make your magic powerful!


4. Magic to make

Sometimes we already know exactly what we want to create and call in and just need a confirmation, sometimes we need a hand knowing where to direct our magic.

If there's something you really want to call in, you can go through the deck and find a card that represents what you want to call in and place it in this position face up!


5. How to surrender  + trust

Now that your magic is made, this card will give you some wisdom on how you can surrender and trust that your magic will be made in accordance with your best and highest good

Girlboss Tarot or Oracle Spread for goal-getters + big dreamers

Girlboss tarot spread new age hipster

Have y'all been watching Girlboss on Netflix?

It's the (real loose) retelling of Sophia Amoruso's dumster diving to riches story of how she became an eBay selling legend in her own lunch time with her biz Nasty Gal.

An entrepreneur after my own heart, Sophia's story was super inspiring and I thought what better way to connect to my own inner girlboss than through a Tarot (or Oracle or whatever cards you want to use!) Spread?

So grab your favourite deck, your journal and a cuppa and let's tune into our big dreams!

Here's one I made earlier with the Cosmic Tarot x

Here's one I made earlier with the Cosmic Tarot x

Card one: What's your current greatest strength?

I added "current" to this because it changes right? This card will let you know what strength you're working with right now, what strength you can call on to help you make your dreams come true.

I got the Devil. Whaaat? But actually this is pretty cool, because it means my current strength is breaking the chains that have been holding me back, and helping others to do the same! Wahoo!

 

Card two: What are your potential distractions?

When you're working towards your dreams you can be sure distractions are going to come up from time to time. This card will show you what to watch out for.

The Emperor reversed for me suggests that time management and general organisational skills can be my downfall! Oh, and a reminder not to get carried away with stationary shopping.

 

Card three: How can you stay focused on your goals and dreams?

Oh it's hard to stay focused on your big dreams some days! This card will give you some insight into how you can stay on track.

I got the Queen of Pentacles reversed.  A message for me to make sure I'm focusing on the right things. Not getting too caught up in my own abundance stuff, but creating from the heart.

 

Card four: What is your big why?

The big why for me is the real reason for why I'm doing what I'm doing. This card can help you work out what you're really hustling for.

I got the Sun! Naaaw. My big why is all about spreading the love and light, shining the light for others and being happy. :)

 

Card five: How can you keep strong and loving boundaries?

Having great boundaries is one of the best ways to protect your own energy and keep your cup full. This card will clue you into the best way for you to do that at this time.

I got the Queen of Wands. I can maintain my boundaries by saying yes to the things I really want to do, and gracefully saying no to to things that don't fire me up. Follow the fire!

 

Card six: What step/s do you need to take towards your dreams?

Pretty straight forward, here comes your action steps towards making this shiz happen!

I got the Five of Pentacles reversed. Ah, still some work to do around my own money stuff, beliefs, programming and fears. My action steps are internal, but yours could be more external!

 

I hope this spread helps you to get more in touch with your inner #Girlboss!

Please tag me in your pics on Instagram or let me know in the comments how this spread worked out for you!

You can find all my other spreads on the Start Here page!

And if you want to delve deeper and grab a reading with me you can do that by hitting up the New Age Hipster Shop.

 

With so much love, light and dreamy boss vibes,

Full Moon Magic Spread for Tarot + Oracle x

Full Moon Magic Tarot Spread

I made a full moon releasing spread aaaages ago and I thought it could be time to make a new one! :D

The spread is ideally used in conjunction with the powerful energy of the full moon! But, you know, you can really do it anytime, especially if you're wanting to clear, release and set intentions.

You can use any deck of your choosing - Tarot, Oracle, Angel or NewAgeHipster InstaOracle :P

Pour yourself a magical tea brew and let's get started...

Here's one I made earlier with the Robin Wood Tarot x

Here's one I made earlier with the Robin Wood Tarot x

CARD ONE: Where are you at this full moon?

This card will show you where you're at, what you most need to know about your present energy and/or situation.

I got Page of Swords reversed. This feels like it's about a resistance to clearing and moving through some gunky energy that's been holding me in place.

 

CARD TWO: What needs to be seen and known tonight?

This card is all about what you need to see and know, what are you ignoring? What are you unaware of that you need to bring to the surface? Sometimes this is intentionally an ignoring or pushing down of things we don't want to look at, other times it could be something we are not aware of, but need to be.

I got Ten of Cups, a kick in the pants to stay in gratitude!

 

CARD THREE: What needs to be released?

What are you being called on to clear and release this full moon? It could be something recent, or something from your past or even past lives!

I got Six of Cups reversed. Time to take off those rose coloured glasses of the past and send them into the light!

 

CARD FOUR: What energy do you need to call in?

This could be about calling in a particular energy to work with such as a deity or guide, or it may be about calling in a particular trait or mindset.

I got the Six of Pentacles. Abundance mindset coming in!

 

CARD FIVE: What intentions need to be set?

This card can help you to set a clear and aligned intention for this moon cycle. Feel free to pull more cards here to get extra clear too!

I got the Hermit reversed and for me this is about finding balance within and in my life.

 

CARD SIX: What magic will be made?

Oooh, so this is where we can check in with potential outcomes of the magic we will make this full moon. You can also choose this card face up from your deck if you'd like to add a touch of extra magic to this reading!

I got the Knight of Wands reversed. The magic I will make is all about getting back on the horse and moving forward again with my goals and dreams!

 

Let me know how this spread works for you! :D And please do tag me in your pics if you share them on Instagram!

With so much love, light and magic,

Manifesting from the Heart x

Manifesting from the heart

According to the internet and at least a thousand books I've read on the subject, there are approximately a gazillion different ways to manifest your heart's desires.

Vision boards, affirmations, journalling, calling on your guides and angels, visualisations, spells, candle magic, full moon or new moon rituals and emojis...

While these are all perfectly valid ways to manifest and they do totally work, I have found there's one thing that pretty much always works for me when I'm trying to manifest, and that's working from my heart.

There are so many of us trying to manifest things are not in alignment with our hearts. Hello, I've done it loads! What I've found from my own experience is that when I don't manifest from my heart I tend to either not get what I'm asking for and end up throwing a hissy fit at the universe, or I do get what I've asked for but realise pretty swiftly that asking for that thing was a big mistake.

Now, a lot of people are expert manifestors, if that's you - cool. If you can just click your fingers and get a parking spot, or cash money that's awesome. Keep doing what you're doing if it all feels good!

Personally I have very little success manifesting parking spots. Not because I'm a shit manifestor, but because I find it hard to manifest things that don't fully resonate with my heart.

Not getting a parking spot two meters from my destination is not really a big deal to me. 

I also struggle to bring in certain amounts of cash money. Like if I ask for £1000, I rarely get it. Why? Because there's no emotional, heart centered attachment between me and £1000.

I have, however, managed to manifest a successful full time business doing something I love which supports me financially, a scholarship for uni, a gig reading Tarot on a paradise island, loads of tickets to events, tarot decks and a pretty darn amazing relationship.

This is in no way a suggestion that you shouldn't try to manifest money or parking spots. If you need those things, bloody go for it!

I just feel like we are all trying to manifest so many things we don't really want on a heart level.

Manifesting from the heart quote x

I went into a spin lately thinking I wanted New Age Hipster to be a six figure biz, and I realised that actually that's not what my heart says, that's just what my Facebook feed says. If you want a six figure biz with all your heart, again, go for it! We all have different paths and purposes in this life! But I find it works better for me personally to focus on bringing in clients who I can help, students into my courses that are going to make big shifts through working with me rather than "cash money". If you're following your heart and living in purpose you're going to be supported.

Manifesting from the heart is my magical manifesting secret.

So, how do you do this?

One super easy way is to check in with your heart space when you're asking for stuff.

Next time you're putting out your intentions into the universe, just stop for a second, put your hands on your heart and ask yourself:

"Is what I'm asking for in alignment with my heart?"

If it is, awesome! Keep asking! If you feel anything icky or uncertainty, or anything that doesn't feel like a HECK YEAH from your heart space, maybe re-think and re-frame what you're calling in. It may just be that you need to change your manifesting only slightly, or you may be nudged in the direction of asking for something else entirely!

So, what are you wanting to bring into your life right now? How does your heart space feel about it?

With so much love, light and heart-centered manifesting power,

New Moon Magic - 33 ways to work with the energy of the new moon

New Moon Magic

New moon energy is powerful shiz!

I like working with the Full Moon for releasing, exploring my stuff, doing some deep work and big magic. On the New Moon though, I’m more about taking stock, setting goals and putting it out there.

Everyone works with moon energy differently, so it's really important for you to find what works best for you.

I'm just sharing with you here some of the stuff that works for me. 

Personally, I always wait until after the New Moon has hit before I start using it’s magic (although I start to think about my intentions earlier!), as I feel that it’s much more powerful.

I go with the three days after rule that says you can work with the new moon energy for up to three days after the moon is new. 

So if I miss the new moon, I don’t freak out, I just do my new moon-y stuff the next day. :D But you can work with the New Moon however it feels best to you.

There's no reason at all why you can't use this list anytime you're wanting to call something in.

If you want to come and partake in some New Moon Magic with other peeps, head over to the Spiritual Journey Pitstop on Facebook where every new and full moon we get together and give each other’s magic a mega boost of love and light!

OK, let’s get into this listicle!

Making Magic with the Magician in 2017

Making Magic with the Magician Tarot Card x

2017 is a one year in numerology and in Tarot that makes it a Magician year! Well, it's also a Wheel of Fortune year, but I feel like the kick ass Magician vibe is really gonna be on the front line this year. 

The Magician is such an incredible archetype and I'm so excited about embodying the Harry Potter within this year! :D

If you wanna find out all about your own personal card of the year and more info about the current year's energy you can check out my totally free e-book - 2017: The Year of the Magician x

So we have all this amazing new beginnings, manifesting and magic energy floating around in the air this year, what are you gonna do with it? I've put together 5 tips to help you really connect with your inner Magician this year!

 

1. gratitude is literally everything

If you're not happy with what you already have, having new things isn't going to make you happy either.

How many times do you manifest something cool but don't even take stock of it because you're too busy manifesting the next thing?

Being grateful doesn't mean you stop setting goals and trying to achieve your dreams, it's about being grateful for all the dreams that have already come true.

 

2. Be conscious of your feelings

You do not need to be a shiny, positive, unicorn riding, glitter throwing light being every single moment of every single day to do good magic.

It's helpful to just try to be conscious and aware of how you're feeling.

If you feel like you need a couch day to be miserable, take it, but take it with the intention of looking after yourself when you're feeling down, rather than "I'm going to the couch FOREVER because everything sucks." Being conscious of your feelings and taking time off when you need it is actually pretty high vibe right?

3. Ritual

Ritual is awesome for manifesting and making magic.

You can visualise until you're blue in the face, but sometimes writing down what you want, lighting a candle or doing a full on witchy ritual is what you really need to help set that intention and get it moving out into the physical world.

 

4. Find a magical path

Study Wicca or Hoodoo, become a Christian Witch, join a coven or just create your own magical path of the Lightworker. 

 

5. Manifest from the heart

Sometimes we can get really caught up in manifesting "stuff". A parking space, a pair of earrings, a book, a new job, a partner...

What you really want to do when you're making magic is peel it all back to how you want to feel, what your heart and soul desire and always manifest from your heart chakra.

 

If you wanna take your manifesting journey even further this year Totally Spiritual will be running again soon(ish!). Sign up for updates to keep, well, up to date!

Dont' forget to check out the free 2017: Year of the Magician e-book too!

May your 2017 be everything you could wish for!

Why isn't my manifesting working?

We do everything they tell us to do. We visualise, we burn letters, we call on the Angels of Abundance, we surrender, we journal, but sometimes, no matter how many things we are doing "right", our manifesting just doesn't seem to be working

And when that happens we go into freak out mode - this stuff doesn't work! Rarrr! And throw our cauldrons across the room. Or we scream at the universe "when is it my turn?!" We make demands, get furious at ourselves for being terrible manifestors, give up, cry, decide that this damn stuff doesn't work at all and then we try just one more guided meditation for abundance! 

There are so many reasons manifesting doesn't work, and most of them aren't because you're just a shit manifestor. So before you run out and buy a new set of prosperity candles because obvs the ones you have are duds, check out these reasons for why your dream man/woman/job/house/whatever hasn't turned up yet.

 

It's just a timing thing

Things don't always manifest on our timeline. Maybe your dream man is still getting out of a relationship he needed to have so he'd have learned some soul lessons and be ready for you. Maybe your house is still being built. Maybe you think you're ready for that book deal, but actually, you're kind of not. 

The universe doesn't (usually) deliver according to your iPhone calendar. If it's taking ages, it's probably for your best and highest good, so sit pretty, pretty one!

 

keeping the faith

Do you actually believe what you're doing is working? If you don't think your manifesting is working, guess what? It's not going to work. 

If you don't believe you deserve that new job, you probably won't get it, no matter how many manifesting tools you use. Or, you will get it and then fall into a heap of like "OMG I can't do this! I'm not good enough!"

Maybe the problem is not that you don't believe in the powers of manifesting and the universe, you just don't believe you deserve great stuff, which is a totally different blog post (watch this space).

 

what your heart really wants

Oh this is a corker. Sometimes when we try to manifest things we saw in the Urban Outfitters catalogue instead of from our hearts it's not always in alignment.

Now some people have huge successes manifesting fancy cars, huge wads of cash and hot outfits. Not me though. I find manifesting from my heart means it's way more likely to come into being.

I manifested New Age Hipster because I followed my heart. I manifested Taylor Swift tickets because I love her (and I love my friend Toni who had a spare ticket!). I manifested a uni scholarship because I loved the subject I wanted to study. I manifested my partner because my heart wanted him. When I look at what other people have and get into a place of manifesting what they have, that never works. Or, sometimes it does, and it teaches you a lot.

gratitude for what you have

Being in gratitude is one of the best ways to manifest more awesome.

But you can't do it because you want more awesome right?

If you're keeping a gratitude journal just because you want to manifest more stuff that's not totally a great energy right there. Keep a gratitude journal because your life rocks and you want to remember that every single day. With no agenda! It's like when you ask for some big birthday present, and then you get it, you open it and are like oh YAY! But then you turn around and start wondering where the other presents are. That person who gave you that big present might be like - eesh! and not totally dig your vibe. 

Have gratitude for your life, just because, not because you want more stuff.

 

being too specific

If you want to feel freedom in your life stop asking for more clients, a better job, a chance to travel or a horse.

If you want a horse, ask instead for the feeling of freedom in your life. If you want to feel loved don't ask for a husband who looks exactly like Rupert Grint, just ask for a partner who makes you feel loved, supported and happy!

Manifesting works better for me when I manifest for how I want to feel, the kind of life I want to have rather than the make and model. 

 

being too vague

I do readings for so many people who say to me that they don't know what they want. After talking to them for less an hour we've uncovered exactly what they want and some ways for them to start moving towards it! 

Don't be vague with the universe. If you want to own your own 1950's diner with turquoise chairs and a vegan menu don't answer the question "so what do you want to do with your life?" with "oh, I'm not really sure, maybe something with food." If you want those turquoise chairs damn well say that's what you want! 

I had a white cat and a tabby on my vision board for ages before I got Zorro, but I never had the intention he had to be white or tabby! I just really wanted a cat in my life. Good thing too, because I love his black splodges so much! x

I had a white cat and a tabby on my vision board for ages before I got Zorro, but I never had the intention he had to be white or tabby! I just really wanted a cat in my life. Good thing too, because I love his black splodges so much! x

 

It's not part of your soul's purpose

Sometimes things just aren't part of our purpose.

If your soul came here to experience a simple life out in the country you may not have much luck in manifesting that massive penthouse in London, or you will, but it won't make you happy and you'll head back to the country anyway. If your soul wanted to travel the world maybe you just won't be able to manifest that corporate job that sounds awesome, but is going to keep you tied down for the next twenty years. 

You can totally manifest things that aren't in alignment with your soul, but it doesn't usually make you feel as awesome as you thought it would

 

It's a lesson

Oh it's always a bloody lesson right? But there is so much growth and learning to be had in not getting what you want. Do you just wanna just be handed every single thing you want on a plate, like today? Like some miserable princess or prince sitting in a tower snapping their fingers and having it all done for them?

Those characters are never very interesting or happy in those stories. Your story will be much more interesting if you have some challenges, some highs and lows, joy in finding the right person to spend your life with after so many disasters, disappointment in not landing that dream job, but finding something else that makes your heart pop that you never even thought you wanted!

Still working on manifesting a couple of these... x

Manifesting is pretty awesome, but so is being open to all the magic life has to offer you that you can't even imagine, let alone find pictures of for your vision board!

I'd love to hear your manifesting stories in the comments below or over on the Spiritual Journey Pitstop group! What amazing things have you manifested in your life? And what do you do when your manifestations aren't working?

With love, light and magic manifesting,

21 Ways to Raise your Vibration!

There’s a lot of heaviness out there in the cosmos just now and it’s super hard work staying high vibe when all you feel like doing is crying at the news coverage and hiding under the doona for the rest of the week.

I think it’s super important to be informed and to do what you can, but there’s also a point where we need to stop feeling emo and sorry for ourselves and start shining our lights again. Even brighter than before! 

It sounds shit I know. Why should we feel amazing about our lives when there is so much bad stuff happening? But the more of us that are on this planet with a high vibe, the better it is for everyone. Crying into a pizza and not getting your blog post done helps no one. 

You might not be able to physically do much at times, but by staying high vibe and doing all the stuff your soul came here to do, you are making a huge difference.

Never underestimate the impact your high vibe has on this planet!

Keep one eye on the news, keep signing petitions to change things, donate money to good causes when you can, be kind as much as poss to as many as you can and take whatever other action feels good and right to you right now. 

And when you're all good deed-ed out, try these:

 

Breathe

Sometimes all you can do is breathe. Breathing is awesome. We all breathe so high up these days, bring it doooooown. Breath with me now. Breathe in, keep breathing, keep breathing in, keep breathing in, now hold it for a second at the top, hold it, hold it! Now let it out. Ah, don't you feel so much better? :D

 

Sing

Nobody ever stayed low-vibe at a sing-a-long. Even if you're too cool to actually sing a long, you can't help but be raised up by singing voices!

 

Dance

OK, this isn't a musical, but musicals are pretty high vibe. How about you dance to something like this

 

PATS

Animals love pats... mostly. Find one and cuddle it. If it doesn't want to be cuddled don't be offended, just sit near it and soak up it's awesomeness. Cats are best for this. :D

 

Hug

Hug someone. If you don't have anyone to hug, hug a tree, or ask your angels to swoop down for one

 

Tea

It's just awesome. 

 

Watch

Binge on your favourite TV show or movie. Watch anything that raises your vibe. I like Charmed, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Back to the Future, Xanadu, Pretty in Pink and Twilight. :D 

 

Listen

OMG cranking your fave tracks never fails to raise the vibe. Make yourself a high vibration playlist on Spotify (or wherever!) and add ONLY songs that make you freak out with funness.

 

Smell

Literally smell something amazing. I like burning oils in my oil burner thingy. Maybe you wanna get some real life flowers or wear your favourite perfume even on a night in alone!

 

Wear

Wear clothes that make you feel high vibe. Stay away from too many darks emo colours. Everyone loves their black skinny jeans, but can we team them with some sequins perhaps? Sequins everywhere! :D 

 

Meditate

Find a guided meditation that will help you raise your vibe - I love Diana Cooper + Doreen Virtue for high vibe meditations, but you can use anything! Even just listening to some chill out music and closing your eyes will do the trick!

 

Smile

Even if you're on the tube right now and will look like a total dick. Do it anyway! :D 

 

Pizza

I mean come on. It's pizza. If you don't do pizza, whatever your personal pizza is. 

 

The Beach

The beach is a great place to get high vibe. If you can't literally go, visualise your happy place

 

Lights

Pop on some fairy lights and you'll wonder how you could ever be sad again.

 

Read

Corny one, but yes, reading something inspiring or fun will totally raise your vibe. I highly recommend Sweet Valley High, Baby Sitter's Club and my novel 1983 (once it's out! #manifest!).

 

Phone a Friend

Call someone for a chit chat. No Facebook chats here folks, make it the real deal, where you actually talk. On a phone. Remember when before the internet or mobile phones??! :-O

 

Tidy

Urgh, like that's high vibe? Well, your vibe will be a lot higher once you're done! You know it's true. #SorryNotSorry

 

Write

Journal out your thoughts, write about stuff, write letters to Angels, write letters to those passed over loved ones, write about your past and send messages to your future!

 

Walk

Go for a walk outside. If it's raining or freezing go anyway! :D

 

Workout

Yoga is always good, but you'd be amazed at how high you can get from 80's workouts. You'll be sore for days, but it's fun! 

 

And then have a bonus one of an early night! You've deserved it after all that fun and vibe raising! Phew! :D

With love, light and high vibes,

Vix
