Daily Mail – Yes, you can live happily in a HAUNTED HOUSE

Yes, you can live happily in a HAUNTED HOUSE: Four readers share their spooky tales, and professional home healer Emma Loveheart gives her surprising verdict

  • Claudia Connell had 12 months of strange happenings at her Brighton home
  • She says house healer Emma Loveheart helped her to achieve a peaceful vibe
  • Four readers revealed the spooky occurrences that they’ve experienced
  • Sophie Barratt*, 69, from France, hears unexplained bangs from her guest room
  • Lesley Ward, 56, from Sheffield, says items in her house disappear without trace

Two weeks ago, I wrote a story for Inspire about the strange goings on at the house I had just moved into in Brighton. Over the course of 12 months, countless things disappeared, mysterious drawings showed up on the wall, and a paintbrush covered in red paint suddenly turned up on my kitchen table.

At night I could hear knocking on my front door (but there was never anybody there), then puddles of water started to appear on surfaces throughout the house. Not one prone to believing in the supernatural, I was unable to explain the strange happenings, and dreaded coming home at night. At my wits’ end, I contacted home healer Emma Loveheart.

A former HR adviser who only discovered her psychic energy eight years ago, Emma detected my house was full of negative vortexes and blocks. She also identified an ‘entity’ — a gremlin-like creature responsible for all the bizarre occurrences. Over a fortnight, she worked to heal my house.

Haunted House

Three weeks on, all is calm and I feel much more relaxed in my home.

The house has a more peaceful vibe and friends have commented on how pleasant the atmosphere is and how much happier I appear.

My story triggered a huge reader response — many had similar stories about their own haunted houses. These strange stories will amaze you. As will Emma’s words of advice…

STRANGER THINGS . . . IN SHEFFIELD

Lesley Ward, 56, is single and lives in an Edwardian terrace house in Sheffield, built in 1910. She moved there with her then husband in 1991, and weird occurrences began the following year.

there have been about two spooky happenings every year, alongside other regular minor irritations, such as things vanishing or moving around.

One of the first was the disappearance of my husband’s leather jacket from the back of a chair — never to be seen again. Shortly after, a wooden flute appeared on the kitchen side, and we used to joke that someone had lost the flute but acquired a jacket!

When my sister-in-law came for tea one evening, she kicked her shoes off under the table. But, when she came to go home, one shoe was missing. It was never found.

Another time, my husband popped out to the shops, leaving a bag of empty wine bottles by the back door to take to the recycling bins later. When he returned, all the bottles were out of the bag and lined up like soldiers at the side of the kitchen.

Once, when we had a new kitchen fitted, the workmen left it half done and refused to come back inside the house. They claimed they kept cutting pieces to fit which simply disappeared when their backs were turned, and that some of their tools had vanished.

Pretty much the same thing happened when we asked a young friend to stay for a couple of weeks, to look after the house while we were on holiday.

When we returned, she admitted she had only stayed two nights. She said she hoped we didn’t think she was mad, but things had moved around and disappeared. ‘That will be the poltergeist,’ my husband told her. She never spoke to us again!

There have been too many happenings to list them all, but I don’t even see them as odd any more — it’s just what happens. My husband no longer lives with me, but I do not consider myself to be living alone. I certainly live with something, I just cannot see it.

Yet it doesn’t frighten me — I am used to it, and it can be helpful. If I’ve lost something, I just shout up to the ceiling, ‘Where is my…?’ and it is generally in the middle of the dining table when I get home from work.

BLAZE TRAGEDY IN MY FRENCH FARMHOUSE

Sophie Barratt*, 69, is retired and lives in a 200-year-old farmhouse in the Dordogne, France, with her husband, 71-year-old Peter*. They moved there in 2015, which is when they first noticed items vanishing.

The previous owner told me about mysterious events she’d experienced — but only after the sale had been completed. She said items would disappear at odd intervals, sometimes for ever. So, when things started to happen to me, I wasn’t surprised.

The first happening occurred when I was alone in the kitchen cooking on the Aga, with my back to the room. Suddenly a champagne cork came flying past my ear and landed in the wood basket next to where I stood. I love champagne, but there wasn’t any in the house, and certainly no corks lying (or flying) about, either.

For the next odd occurrence, my husband was with me in the kitchen, near the front door, which looks directly onto a walled and secure courtyard at the front of the house.

We were expecting a friend and so, when we heard a knock at the door, we assumed she’d arrived. When we opened the door, there was no one there, but my friend was just driving in through the gates. It was as if our resident spirit was trying to be helpful, alerting us to our friend’s arrival.

We still hear regular bangs and crashes from the guest bedrooms above the kitchen which, when we investigate, have no apparent cause.

I also often feel as though there is another presence with me in an otherwise unoccupied room, but I never feel scared or threatened. I do not detect any malevolent presence. This is definitely a happy house.

Our ‘visitor’ likes to remind us that she’s still here from time to time, by hiding my shoes (usually just one, irritatingly) or other personal items.

I say ‘she’ because an elderly neighbour told us a horrifying tale of an accident that befell a previous occupant of this house.

Apparently, this poor, infirm lady, the mother of the then owner, fell onto an open fire in the hearth which now houses my Aga. She suffered terrible injuries and died in hospital.

I sometimes talk aloud, in French, to old Madame DuPont, just to let her know that I know she’s there and that’s OK by me.

OUR MYSTERIOUS SEASIDE LODGERS

Ron Sewell (ex-Royal Navy), 75, lives with his wife Sheila, 76, in Essex and they have four children and five grandchildren. In 2002, they moved out of the ground-floor flat of an 18th-century ex-coastguard office, near a beach in Edinburgh, which they believe was haunted.

A strange visual feature of the building was the number of chimney pots. There were 12 fireplaces I know exist, but 13 flues project from the roof. The 13th fire remains a mystery.

The spare bedroom, which became my office, was always the coldest. Most of the time, when working at my computer, the temperature would drop to the point where I shivered.

One day, sensing a presence, I said aloud, ‘I don’t know who you are, but clear off,’ and the room warmed up straight away. I laughed at the thought of talking to thin air. Every time ‘Harry’, as I named him, arrived, I asked him to leave, and he did.

On other occasions, every room filled with an old-fashioned flowery perfume. I thought my wife had spilt a bottle, but she had not. The scent would vanish in seconds.

On my wife’s dressing table were a few cut-glass bottles which once belonged to her mother. One day she asked me why I had repositioned them. I hadn’t. If she put them back to the original position, they would move in her absence. We decided to leave them where they were. They remained in place until we sold the property.

Often I thought my wife was in the hall only to discover she was not, but I saw the movement of something dashing past. We both sensed it was female, possibly a housekeeper, and we called her Annabelle.

After redecorating the spare bedroom, we repositioned the headboard on a different wall.

Later, my wife called me into the room. I found her next to the bricked-up fireplace, standing as if warming her hands.

“On other occasions, every room filled with an old-fashioned flowery perfume” – Ron Sewell

I also felt the radiated heat. Yet this was an external wall, so where did the heat originate from? Harry must have liked this change, as the room was never cold again.

Harry and Annabelle became part of our lives.

In spite of the unusual occurrences, our home had a welcoming ambience. We concluded that somehow they belonged to the house, and were part of its history from different times.

When we went on holiday, I always asked them to take care of our home, and I think they did.

On putting the house up for sale, the initial viewers, a young couple, loved it, but the first question the woman asked was, ‘Do you have ghosts?’ My wife and I looked at each other and smiled, answering, ‘We think so’.

The couple still bought the flat.

FRED, THE NOISY, FRIENDLY GHOST

Pamela Stewart, 63, is retired and lives in Devon. In 1974, she rented a Victorian townhouse in Guildford with her boyfriend (now ex-husband) Stewart, for two years, where several strange things took place.

Many years ago, in my first rented house after leaving my family home, I had a ghost I called ‘Fred’.

I was 18 and living with Stewart, in a tiny two-up two-down. My brother and his wife lived next door on one side, and on the other was my sister-in-law’s sister and her boyfriend — it was a family row of houses. We used to visit each other frequently.

We all had ‘hauntings’, with ‘somebody’ noisily using our stairs to the kitchen and rattling the doorknob, when there was nobody there and the back door was locked.

We kept losing things and finding them in obscure places, too. Once, I was putting away the washing-up, and while my back was turned, all of the glasses were taken from the open cupboard and placed silently in a line against the skirting board, 8ft behind me. I told off ‘Fred’, saying he was wasting my time.

He liked to bang and crash around upstairs, knocking things to the floor and pulling bedding off to put it into a heap. Often, when I returned from putting the vacuum away after cleaning, I would find a neat pile of soot on the rug in the middle of the room.

However, I was never scared, and I didn’t feel lonely because I always knew ‘Fred’ was there. I would talk to him sometimes, and hear knocking from upstairs in reply.

When I moved out, I called out ‘Bye Fred’ and was answered by a very loud thump from upstairs.

HOME HEALER EMMA SAYS:

What I loved about these stories is that many readers had learned to live alongside their resident spirits, and even developed relationships with them.

If you are unhappy with a spirit living in your home, there are steps you can take to move them on, but if they aren’t acting in a harmful way, why would you need to?

The spirit I found in Claudia’s house wasn’t of human origin, but it seems these ones all are. Ron mentioned the smell of perfume, and that’s a good indicator of a human spirit. Often, people smell cigarette smoke when nobody in the house is a smoker.

I suspect Ron is right in his assumption that ‘Annabelle’ was part of the history of the house. Her story is something he could explore further with the aid of a psychic.

When people tune into the energy of a human spirit, they are usually able to detect whether it’s male or female, as Pamela did with ‘Fred’. It sounds like they struck up a good connection, especially if he listened when she told him off.

The story Sophie mentions about Madame DuPont, a previous occupant of the house who fell into a fire, was fascinating. Knowing the history of your home can provide clues. If somebody died in a horrible way in the property, sometimes their spirit can get ‘stuck’ through trauma and need help moving on.

Often, people can pick up on the trauma that spirit felt when living, and experience a physical pain.

The only spirit that sounded too naughty at times was Lesley’s.

She refers to it as a ‘poltergeist’. Poltergeists generally come with a very dark energy. Lesley appears to feel comfortable in her home, so I would rule out a poltergeist, as their aim is to unnerve you.

The fact Lesley can successfully demand that her missing items are returned sounds as though they’ve built up an understanding.

Significantly, these letters show ghost stories don’t have to be scary, and that you can happily live side by side with spirits.

If you do want to remove them, it wouldn’t be a quick fix. It’s a case of tuning into the energy of the home, finding the spirit’s story and learning why they were there — some have a message they want to pass on — and then helping them move away if they want to.

The people I help all want their homes to be cleared, but it’s perfectly possible that some spirits may just leave of their own accord when they feel their work is done.

Daily Mail – Spooky Drawings on the Wall

Spooky drawings on the wall, vanishing earrings, and a mysterious knocking at the front door: How CLAUDIA CONNELL turned to a ‘home healer’ to sort out her haunted house


When Claudia Connell moved house she was terrified by unexplained events
She lived in the house for two months when possessions started to go missing
Home healer Emma Loveheart helped ‘clear’ her home of negative energy
By CLAUDIA CONNELL FOR THE DAILY MAIL

A paintbrush coated in dried, red paint on my kitchen table that did not belong to me, and had absolutely not been there when I left the house that morning, was what it took for me finally to accept that something weird was happening in my new home.

It was the culmination of months of mysterious occurrences that I had done my best to put down to forgetfulness or my imagination.

But this was a paintbrush, dipped in scarlet paint suddenly showing up in a house where I lived alone and was not having any decorating work done. I would have given anything for there to be a rational explanation — but I drew a blank.

Ask anybody who knows me and they’ll tell you that I’m the least ‘woo woo’ person you could meet. Until recently, I didn’t believe in anything supernatural and thought there was always a logical, scientific explanation for anything vaguely weird or paranormal. Then I moved into my house in Brighton.

Like so many Londoners, I decided to leave the capital for a new start somewhere less frantic. I chose Brighton because I had friends and family nearby, and had always adored it as a child.

I loved the house on first viewing and immediately put in an offer. The previous owners had lived there for more than 50 years and told me several times how happy a home it had been for them.

For me, it was a different story. Within days of moving in I felt crushingly low and anxious. I couldn’t sleep at night and constantly felt tearful and on edge.

I’d lived in the house for two months when my possessions started to go missing. It began with a favourite pair of earrings.

I decided it was ‘relocation depression’ a recognised condition where the stresses of moving, coupled with the unfamiliarity of a new house and town, give you the blues. I told myself that things would get better — instead they just got weirder.

I was cooking in the kitchen and the heavy earrings were starting to irritate my lobes, so I removed them and placed them in a nearby egg cup, making a mental note to take them upstairs to my jewellery box after I’d eaten.

When I went back for the earrings, the egg cup was empty. I turned the kitchen upside down and I never found them.

The same thing happened with a new fountain pen I bought myself. I put it in a pen holder on my desk and never saw it again. A pair of flip-flops I left beside my bed at night weren’t there in the morning.

In the same way that I am not ‘woo woo’, I am also not scatty or disorganised. I’m tidy and methodical and people always remark on my incredible memory.

How likely was it that since moving house I had turned into such a forgetful, chaotic person? As well as losing things I also experienced a run of bad health. Normally, I’m fit as a fiddle, but it seemed to be one sore throat, migraine and ear infection after another.

I developed pains in my hands that I was having hospital treatment for, and had built up a large file of paperwork from the various physiotherapists and specialists that I’d seen. Another disappearing incident came when I was leaving to see a hand surgeon and had placed my hospital folder on the table to take with me.

By the time my taxi arrived to take me to my appointment, the file had vanished.

Again, I turned the house upside down — this time even rummaging through the contents of my wheelie bin, but to no avail.

Usually with mislaid items they will resurface again at some point. The things I lost never did. Not the earrings, the flipflops, the pen, the hospital file — or the sock.

Oh yes, the white sock. The incident for which even my most cynical of friends struggled to come up with an answer.

I had collected a bundle of laundry from my washing line and was taking it upstairs. As I climbed the stairs, a white sock fell from the pile and landed on a step.

I decided to carry on climbing the stairs, dump the laundry pile on my bed and return for the sock. When I went back 20 seconds later it wasn’t there.

‘Maybe you’ve got a mouse that took it away?’ suggested one of my friends. ‘Could a gust have wind have blown it out of the house?’ asked another. I don’t have mice, and all doors and windows were shut. The single unpaired sock on my laundry pile told me that I hadn’t imagined seeing its other half on the step.

Then there were the heart shapes that were suddenly drawn on the wall in my hallway. There were four of them, about the size of two-pence pieces.

By that stage I’d been in the house almost six months, and I knew they hadn’t been there when I’d moved in. I had scrubbed the house from top to bottom, dusting picture rails, skirting boards and door frames. I would have seen them.

Everything I’d read about relocation depression suggested that it started to lift after a few months, but that wasn’t my experience.

I contacted an estate agent about selling the house only to discover that mortgage holders must be the registered owner of a property for a minimum of six months before they can remarket it.

I felt trapped and overwhelmed with despair. And then the paintbrush incident occurred.

I had been living in the house for eight months, I got home from work went into the kitchen and saw the paintbrush. I checked, and all doors and windows were tightly closed. I have no pets that could have brought it in.

It wasn’t my paintbrush and it had appeared when I was not at home. Red paint — the colour of blood, the colour of danger, made the incident even more sinister.

The next morning I rang a locksmith. I had the locks changed on the front door, the back door and extra locks put on the downstairs windows. I hadn’t changed locks since moving in, and I had no idea who had been given a set of keys over the years.

There was a three-month hiatus in activities, but just when I thought I’d turned a corner, a new wave of weirdness kicked in.

I’d wake up in the early hours to the sound of someone knocking on my front door, although when I put my head out of the bedroom window to look, there was nobody there.

Then puddles of water started to appear all over the house. I’d come home to find them in strange places like the TV unit and the dressing table in the spare bedroom. There was no leak from the roof or pipework, and I hadn’t put any glasses of liquid on the surfaces. I had given up trying to explain the unexplainable.

A friend suggested I got a priest in to bless the house. ‘But I don’t believe in God,’ was my reply. And, besides, don’t you need to be speaking in tongues and vomiting pea soup before they get involved?

Instead, I looked online at house healers because, by that stage, quite frankly, anything was worth a shot.

Most of them were as I expected — hippy-dippy with websites depicting images of Victorian ghosts. No thanks. I wanted to get the madness out of my house, not invite more in.

Then I stumbled across Emma Loveheart’s website. She looked reassuringly normal. She didn’t have home-dyed pink hair and there were no pictures of ghosts in nightcaps carrying candles.

When we met, I discovered that Emma, 51, from Newbury in Berkshire, hadn’t even considered herself to be spiritual until eight years ago.

‘I had a corporate career, I worked in HR for a large telecoms company. I didn’t know anything about spirituality and certainly nobody in my family had any psychic ability or interest in that area,’ she tells me.

Then, in 2011, she had a premonition. Emma, her husband and two daughters were about to go on a skiing holiday when she had a vision that her eldest child was going to be seriously injured on the slopes and end up paralysed.

Initially dismissing it as maternal fear — skiing is dangerous, after all — she said nothing. But the nearer the holiday got, the stronger the feeling became. ‘It became so vivid,’ she tells me. ‘It was like a movie playing out in my mind. I could absolutely put myself at the scene and see how it was going to happen.’

Two days before the family were due to fly off, her daughter, then aged 11, suddenly burst into tears at the breakfast table saying she didn’t want to go skiing because she felt sure something bad was going to happen. Until that moment Emma hadn’t spoken a word about her premonition.

‘We agreed that our feelings were too strong to ignore and we cancelled our trip.’

Cynics may say that Emma’s daughter was merely picking up on her mother’s fear, although Emma remains convinced she had a vision that meant she was able to avert disaster.

From that point on, she began to explore what she had experienced. She read about psychic energy, she went to workshops and spoke to other spiritual people.

‘I needed answers,’ she tells me. ‘And I realised I could connect to this energy, a source, the universe, whatever you want to call it. There’s something that exists outside of our known realms and once I made this connection it felt like second nature.

‘I worked out that I could talk to spirits, that I could work with darker energies. And that evolved to healing people’s homes.’

Not that there wasn’t an incredibly high personal price to Emma’s calling.

‘Oh, I’ve been on a journey of rejection since discovering I had this ability; my life has been upturned,’ she says.

‘I’ve been told I’m mad. I have lost friends. I lost my marriage —my husband just couldn’t accept it. My father thought I had been kidnapped by a religious cult. But the pull I felt went far deeper than any fear of ridicule or exclusion.’

To date, Emma has ‘cleared’ more than 100 homes; her services start at £195 and the price varies according to the size of the property and the issues in the home.

Her clients are a mixture of very spiritual people, and others like me. People who don’t normally believe that sort of thing, but have run out of reasonable explanations — and solutions — to the things they witness and feel in their houses.

Her work is done remotely, something that puzzles some people. But she explains that her healing comes from connecting with universal energy which is something she can do anywhere.

Her work is done remotely, something that puzzles some people. But she explains that her healing comes from connecting with universal energy which is something she can do anywhere.

‘I don’t flounce around with twigs and incense, I’m afraid,’ she says.

The first step to my house healing is to give Emma my full address so she can tune into the energy of the house. Sometimes she imagines herself in the house, sometimes floating above it.

She was able to very quickly pick up on what she describes as ‘an entity’ living in my home. It wasn’t a human spirit (that’s a relief).

My fear was that I had a poltergeist (a particular type of spirit responsible for physical disturbances). I’d seen the film, I didn’t want to get sucked into my television. But Emma confirmed there was no poltergeist or any other type of ghost, rather a ‘creature’ or some form of sprite.

While a ghost is the spirit of a person or animal that once lived, an entity has been created as the result of constant negative energy and fear.

Emma explains: ‘It wasn’t evil, it didn’t want to hurt you or drive you away, it was just very mischievous, like a child desperate for your attention. It could have been there many years and it felt sad and rejected by the people who moved away.’

Emma said that she was able to connect with the entity psychically, converse with it and tell it to move on by guiding it into another ether. It may sound mad — but no crazier than sinister pools of water and vanishing socks.

And it didn’t stop there. Emma was able to detect psychic stresses in the form of negative vortexes. Five of them in the earth directly underneath the house. She tells me to imagine drain holes that are sucking the good energy out of the house and occasionally spewing negative energy back in.

She detected seven negative energy blocks — these are areas of the house that hold onto negative energy and create the bad atmosphere that I constantly felt.

The only good news was that the ‘geopathic stress’ in my house — the electromagnetic waves in the earth — was about average.

When Emma has gathered all her psychic readings from a house, she gives it a ‘vitality rating’. This is a way of measuring the positive life force within a property.

Anything less than 100 per cent means energy is being drained in some way. Mine was a big, fat zero.

‘Zero is rock bottom and I have encountered it before, but to get that score there is usually some psychic activity in the house,’ Emma says.

Although her reading was shocking, it was also a relief. If changing my locks hadn’t helped, then I had nothing to lose with an energy cleanse.

She WAS able to work on healing my home remotely immediately, using her skills to close the negative vortexes and dissolve the blocks. She estimated that it would take two weeks.

Just 24 hours after she started her process, she reported that she’d already got the vitality rating up to 49 per cent.

‘Tell me how you feel when you get home tonight,’ she emailed. ‘I think you’ll find the house feels very different.’

It did. The best way I can describe it is a huge feeling of blissful relief — a bit like taking your heels or bra off at the end of the day.

A week later, and as Emma’s distance healing continues, I feel happier and safer in my home. Nothing has gone missing; the puddles of water have stopped appearing and there have been no late-night door knocks.

Emma promises to get my house up to a 100 per cent vitality rating, and says that once all the negative drains and blocks have been removed, there is no reason why they should ever return.

I still struggle with how bonkers it all sounds, but as Emma says: ‘I think we have to accept that there are some things that are so extraordinary that they can’t be explained. And why wouldn’t extraordinary happenings require an extraordinary solution?’

All I know is that for the first time in 15 months my stomach doesn’t lurch when I put the key in my door.

It would be nice to be reunited with my missing things, but if it means that devious little sprite returning, then I can definitely live without them.

5 ways to give yourself a happier house
1 Declutter. Positive energy needs to flow, and when it’s restricted, it will stagnate and affect the feel of your home.

2 Let in the fresh air. Open your windows regularly, even in winter. It clears stagnant energy.

3 Avoid chemicals. There are so many in our everyday products, and too many will damage the energy in your home. If you want it to smell of roses, then fill a vase with the real thing, not a scented air freshener.

4 Have a spring clean. If you don’t allow dust and dirt to gather, you’ll keep dirty energy at bay, too. Observe how much more relaxing it is to be in a clean, fresh home than a dirty, musty one.

5 RING CHANGES. If you don’t love a piece of furniture or the decor then change it. The more you love your home, the more positive the energy in return.

‘Why it is so important to find your unique niche in the marketplace’
By Fati Gorezi

Emma Loveheart is a Radio Show Host and International Speaker based in the UK. She works on improving energy in properties all over the world through her business “Into the Light”. She offers a unique, specialised and exclusive healing service that looks at psychic energy and earth stresses affecting the home and business premises, as well as people connected to those properties. Emma currently has a monthly radio show with ‘News for the Soul’ on which she shares her stories and experiences, discussing some of the finer points of working with what can be ‘dark’ spiritual beings.

How do you remember your early life?

My early life was always around helping others and working with people. During further education I volunteered at a local old peoples’ home and every friday I would visit and do shopping errands for the elderly residents. We all looked forward to my friday visits! My career started in the service industry and then I progressed into the field of Human Resources. I specialised in employee relations working with employees to resolve performance issues and conflict. It was a good foundation as I now work with people in a more sensitive way, supporting their healing and spiritual journey.

Can you tell us more your experience as a Radio Show Host?

My monthly radio show on ‘News for the Soul’ broadcasts live on the first Wednesday of every month and gives me the opportunity to discuss some of the challenges I have encountered with my healing homes work. I am usually faced with all sorts of strange psychic activity that I share, but it also allows me to discuss some of the benefits people have experienced as a result of my work.

How do you remember your first steps as a business owner?

Setting up on your own feels more glamourous than the reality when you first start out! You have to be everything – marketeer, sales person, administrator, etc. But seeing your business grow and allowing it to evolve is extremely rewarding in so many ways. You have the freedom to explore and develop the business, as well as the flexibility to adapt it to meet you clients’ needs and your own of course.

What were the challenges that you have faced?

The biggest challenge by far was the initial reaction I got when I discovered I was psychic. My closest family and people I loved could not accept it and rejected me. I have never felt so isolated and feared talking about it to anyone, yet alone selling a business around it. It took me a long time of working through what was important to me, what my soul purpose was, and what I wanted from my life. It resulted in me ending my marriage of 20 years which broke up my family, but I am now living the life I desire and making a positive impact on other peoples’ lives.

How would you describe your lifestyle?

I have a free lifestyle. I am committed to my work and learning more all the time, but I have flexibility. This freedom allows me to spend time with my children, to be creative, nurture myself and to be spontaneous. Spontaneity is fun! We could all do with some more fun in our lives! I let the universe guide me and support me, so that the freedom is fulfilling and rewarding. I still face challenges in my life but having the space in my day allows me to face these challenges head on and work through them. Life is a healing journey, and my pain along with my healing allows me to support others.

What would you say are the key elements for starting and running a successful business?

Initially, it is important to niche yourself in the market place. It is common to want to offer many services to maximise your business potential, but this is confusing to the consumer. When you niche you can be clear on your offering and market more effectively. Once you have established yourself as an expert in a certain field then you can expand. The key for me in running a successful business is to be flexible. My business plan has changed many times over the years. It is a great opportunity to review your business annually and to reflect on the areas that have worked well, as well as the areas that haven’t. As my business has grown and established itself, I have also developed personally, and my business needs to reflect this. Ultimately it means my business is constantly changing with demands but also represents the best I can offer.

What is it that motivates and drives you in everyday life?

My motivation is to have a positive impact on peoples’ lives. When I get feedback from clients saying my work has transformed a child’s negative behavior, or the family arguments have stopped, I celebrate what I do! I want to share my learning and expertise to make a positive difference for others. I ask myself, ‘What can I offer?’, ‘What difference can I make?’ Approaching my work and my life in this way allows me to offer my best to everyone I meet and encounter. I also like to reflect daily and recognise everything I can be grateful for in my life. And there is always so much! Even if there is a bad day or a more challenging day, there will always be something to be grateful for, however small.

What plans do you have for the future?

My aim with my business has always been to ‘heal’ and clear energetically as many homes as possible. The ultimate aim of course, being to improve peoples’ lives. This I will continue and being able to work remotely allows me to offer my work all over the world. My biggest plan however is to share my story. I have had a very challenging spiritual journey before establishing my healing business and there are many people that have a spiritual experience but are not sure what to do with it or are afraid. My message is that there is a universe out there waiting to support you, all you have to do is tap into it. If we can work simultaneously with the universe, we can work in our everyday life harmoniously and with love.

What about your experience at the ‘Global Woman Summit’ 2018?

What fun! There were so many wonderful speakers with amazing stories. Everyone had something incredible to share, it was a pleasure to be involved in the event. I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the ‘Wellbeing Panel’. It was a great topic and was good to be able to offer a spiritual view on wellbeing. Meeting Les Brown and hearing him speak was of course a real highlight. I found him incredibly inspirational and hope to meet him again someday.
