Out of the spiritual closet


Those who know me well are very well aware that I’m a spiritual person, I believe in Karma, past lives, soul families, soul mates, and we have a light inside of us…

Follow your intuition, it will always lead you to the right destination #FearlessSoul

I believe we meet people along our journey for a reason be it to learn lessons, help them in some way or just sheer remembrance of each other from a past life. However while my spiritual beliefs are a big part of me, of who I am I don’t openly share this side of myself. I follow my intuition, especially with regarding to people and situations. Although I don’t always listen! 💖As with the above quote, it leads you to the right place. I wonder if my intuition is telling me to take slow steps to being spiritually open. Why I wonder and a question I have been asking myself recently. Why would I not share a large part of who I am?


In light is the new black there is a sub heading about being out of the spiritual closet. Apart from my beliefs which I’ve discussed above, I’ve been going to the Spiritualist church for over 25 years, receiving healing and going to services. I’ve had tarot cards for over 20 years. My mum is an astrologer and tarot reader so woo woo is totally normal for me. Its part of my life, part of me I’m not however totally open about my spiritual side with people until I get to know them. Yes! people laugh sometimes when I ask their star sign, given astrology is much more mainstream, how would they react if I asked them about healing, do they believe in spirits and the after life?

I’ve always picked up on what i used to refer to as the “vibes”, which I now know to be energy. My intuition has always being strong and I pick up other peoples emotions, this can be a blessing but also a curse. I’ve since discovered this mean i’m naturally empathic, because i feel others emotions. I have always felt that working in a holistic, healing career is the one for me. I didn’t always listen to this, but since becoming ill i have connected with this side of myself more. I can, and do get very drained by other people but i’m learning to use various methods of spiritual protection, which helps. However I have found since I’m embracing this side of myself more and I work with my guides more I feel less drained. After a reiki treatment, i feel amazing, and energised


Since 2016, so for the last 2 years I have worked a lot on myself, what i want from life, reading more spiritual and self help books and promoting my spiritual business. I have an instagram page, more recently a facebook group and page and now this blog….. I personally find instagram a great platform for sharing and introducing your spiritual side. I started by sharing pictures of oracle cards, quotes and more recently my own affirmations.


I used to dread what they say when I spoke about healing, chakras, reading tarot cards and working with spirit guides. Why am I not totally open? This is a question I’ve been thinking about. I’m happy with myself, my beliefs, I think I’m more worried what people will think.

Reiki, and the use of crystals is becoming more mainstream. However I believe it still has a long way to go. After all many other practices, which align chakras, create balance have been used by various cultures for centuries. In India consulting a tarot reader of astrology is general practice. My aim is consulting a reiki healer too will be general practice in western society. For me Instagram is great for this, a place I feel I can be more open and share my spiritual thoughts. I’m much more open about reiki, using crystals and reading cards, under star spiritual. Sharing the benefits of reiki and healing only benefit people and the world by spreading love and light to all. Are you all open about your spirituality? Are you totally out there or do you like me have an alternative account for all things spiritual?


While I ask these questions, writing about my spirituality is taking me closer to sharing my spiritual beliefs with those outside of my circle and promote my amazing gifts as a spiritual entrepreneur….
