CLAIRE’S CHALLENGE: Week Thirteen – reading for Helen
Wow – so this week I combined everything I have been learning over the past few months and did a reading for Helen with some pretty good results! This week’s post is going to be a bit different in that I am going to write from my point of view and Helen will write from her point of view and let you guys know how I went with each element.
I started off grounding and protecting myself and then asked Helen to shuffle her angel cards and select three. Helen did pick three, and an extra one fell out (which turned out to be a very important card). The first three cards were: ‘surrender and release’, ‘new love’ and ‘miracles’. Some of which were pretty obvious to us both. I started off with miracles and said well obviously Helen is pregnant and is getting married in a few weeks so a lot of miracles are coming into her life. New love – again pretty obvious – new baby and getting married. But this is where it gets interesting.
I went back to the miracles card and saw some people standing around (these were people neither of us knew). The people were very clear to me, and had a creative, cool vibe about them. I said Helen needs to surround herself with more creative people. I then revisited the new love card and saw that Helen is having a girl! I didn’t actually see the baby but just got energy. (I have always thought Helen would have a boy, so this is interesting to me…). I saw Helen’s fiancé holding the baby in the nursery and looking very content.
I moved to the surrender and release card and my throat felt very constricted, my whole body tensed and I felt really stressed. I said Helen is feeling stressed about the pregnancy (but shouldn’t be). I thought there may be a complication with the birth but she needs to roll with the punches and everything will work out. I said Helen needs to stop stressing or there will be a much more serious problem.
The study card was really interesting for me. I saw Helen’s office but I saw some specific books (without going into it, I saw the cover of a book which had a clear picture so I could explain to Helen). The book turned out to be something new she is thinking of writing, and I completely nailed it! The theme, the genre, the outlay of it. Everything! Oh, and I also said stop reading so much about the baby, just go with it and don’t worry about dotting every i and crossing every t.
I was so impressed while Claire was going through the cards with me. When she got stuck I prompted her with questions to ask of her guides to get clarification – but I certainly didn’t give anything away or give her leading questions. I’m still often a sceptic at heart, so wanted to be sure I wasn’t leading Claire anywhere. I agree, it’s not that surprising for the miracles and new love card to be turned over for me (and in fact, I have been pulling those cards myself lately).
In readings I give, when the study card comes up it usually refers to some sort of formal study (like a qualification or on-the-job-training) or some form of self study/reflection. When I turn this card for myself, I know it relates to my writing, which is a really big part of my life. I currently am working on a number of books and writing projects, most based around my work and my automatic writing. Since falling pregnant, another idea has crept into my mind for yet another book, and I’ve only shared the idea with one friend of mine – not Claire (until today). So the pictures and information she saw was so reassuring to me, and of course, to her!
My throat chakra has been in need of some additional care of late. As mentioned, I’m working on a number of writing tasks at the moment, so my creative expression and communication is paramount. But, I also need to be clearer in my communication in a couple of other areas. I’ve been paying particular attention to my throat chakra, but I may still have some work to do.
With regards to feeling tight and tense, while I’m relaxed about the pregnancy, I am occasionally concerned about how to manage having a baby and working in a career and business I love. For me, this is where I am struggling and I also don’t want to overdo it when I (soon) reopen the books to more appointments. I’m also starting to look into birth choices and while I’m comfortable with going with the flow when the time comes, just like any first-time expectant mum, I’m still a little unsure of what to expect. Two weeks ago I underwent a past life regression which also explored some fears I have about child birth, which I’ve also been working on releasing. However, I thought I wasn’t really reading that much about pregnancy and birth – although, I did just order two more books online yesterday! I’ll take it down a notch…
Next I tried psychometry and held Helen’s engagement ring. I didn’t get much there but I kept seeing our Granny dressed up in a wedding outfit. I then tried Helen’s other ring which she has had for some time and wears every day. I heard the words ‘New York’ and specifically saw Times Square and a theatre (maybe Broadway) with a blank billboard above it. The ring was very hot to touch. I also felt the energy of a baby girl.
We couldn’t seem to go into much depth here, but yes, we are trying to get Granny to the wedding which is proving difficult given her current health. New York is one of my favourite places in the world (I think I may have had a past life there…) and when I went a few years ago we did stay near Times Square. Who knows, maybe I’ll make it to Broadway one day… Also of note, I did purchase this particular ring while in New York as a reminder to myself of what I wanted in my life.
I then, out of nowhere, heard a very specific name (someone who I had never heard of, but Helen confirmed it was someone close to her) and got some information about them.
The information Claire received is news to me, at this point I can’t confirm if it’s playing out in this person’s life, but I’m certainly interested to watch this space (and perhaps look into later with my own guides).
I then tried automatic writing and got a lot of information. Some specific names and information. One name was someone who Helen knew and the information I got matched their situation exactly. The other name I got, neither of us knew, but Helen has had that name come through in automatic writing as well! I also got some general information for Helen to keep writing, to be aware of some situations, and to look after herself and eating habits through her pregnancy.
I was surprised when one name in particular came up – it’s a very unusual name and not someone I’ve physically met yet. But their name has been present in my automatic writing on and off for a year or so now. I have been paying particular attention to my body and eating habits, especially after some food hasn’t agreed with me this week and had me quite unwell during the week.
For those of you still trying automatic writing at home – I should point out that the first few things Claire wrote down were still random words and phrases, which really didn’t mean anything. Push through it! It’s worth it…
Next I tried a pendulum using Helen’s necklace. I must say, I’m still really not fussed on pendulums but I did get some good results. I found out: the baby would be a girl, Helen would have 3 children, the first baby will be one of her soulmate, the baby will look like Helen, the baby will be famous (haha) and some other specific (but personal) information about Helen and her life.
Claire seem’s pretty convinced I’m carrying a girl – which is surprising, as she previously thought it was a boy. But, today’s results do keep pointing to a girl. I’m still tight lipped on what I think it is (watch this space – scan to come in the next week!) but it’s interesting to see how many children and their connections to me and my fiancé. Also some good hits from Claire relating to my writing work again – nice confirmation for me to keep going, which I needed to hear right now! I also sense the baby will be more like my partner… but, then, it may be a matter of opinion!
I finished up with one more angel card (which I feel I get the most information/pictures/words from) and the card was ‘serenity’. Perfect. I said that Helen needed to chill out in general, but particularly about the pregnancy. I started to feel tense and my throat was feeling tight again.
Point taken! I’m learning…
I cannot believe how well I went this week. I am learning more and more each time and am getting more and more information. It was really good reading for Helen too as she could understand what I was seeing and would probe me further with questions. Like ‘do you have any sensations’ or ‘describe this more’. It’s the simple signs that you might miss, which really do add up to an excellent reading!!
NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE: What’s in a name? Well, a lot actually. A person’s name holds a lot of energetic information about them… so this week, I’ve given Claire a list of five names of real people I know, but she may not. Her job is to perform a ‘reading’ for them, seeing what information she can determine about them. Claire can use any of the techniques she’s learnt in recent weeks.
