I am an Intuitive, Empath and Healer. Healing is my true calling and after being on an intense healing path over the years I am now helping others on their own journey. My soul purpose here on Earth is to helps others step into their power.
From an early age, I knew I was different as I seemed to be able to tell what people were thinking and feeling. I am a big believer in intuition and energy and have now mastered my own spiritual gifts and understand the impact energy can have on others. I have always believed that there is more to life than what we can touch and see which is why I wanted to develop my own talents and beliefs.
I was rather confused when I was growing up as I was incredibly sensitive to other people's emotions. I had no idea how to handle these feelings and just thought everyone felt like this. I have since learnt that I am an Empath and with the help of Reiki, I have been able to control my energy and protect myself from other people's energy. I used to feel very tired if I had spent time with a friend who was negative in their thoughts and now realise that I was taking on their energy! They felt better after being with me as I had given them all my energy as they had taken mine! This is obviously not intentional as the person does not realise they are taking someone else's energy. It took a big wake up call for me to realise this was damaging my health and so I decided to do something about it.
In 2009, I did Usui Reiki I and I was so nervous sitting with 3 other people who I did not know. I didn't even know why I was there, apart from the fact it felt like the right thing to do! I hadn't even had a Reiki treatment, so didn't know what to expect! As we were all getting to know each other, my Reiki Master's dog, Kira, came over to me and put her head in my lap and looked up at me as if to say everything will be okay. I felt so much calmer and knew I was on the right path. The day was wonderful even though I was still a bit nervous about giving my first treatment! Once I had done level I, I wanted to try it out on everyone, so gave Reiki to my family and friends. They all loved it and it made me feel happy to be able to give so much love through healing.
Kira, who helped me know I was on the right path!
I then went on an intense healing path and trusted my intuition as I completed my Usui Reiki Master/Teacher level in a matter of months! It felt so right and my Reiki Master also felt it was right for me so I didn't question it. I then went on to do all levels of the Lightarian™ Reiki and did the Kundalini Reiki alongside. All I can say looking back is WOW; I did a huge amount of clearing in a very short space of time!! I wouldn't recommend this for everyone, but I felt like I had to catch up and spirit and my intuition kept pushing me to keep going.
I also did a lot of other spiritual work before I set up my business, which previously used to be called Violet-Light, to help me understand my gifts and to be a clearer healing channel.
I am a Reiki Master / Teacher for four main types of Reiki as listed above, but I have also done several other courses, attunements and workshops. I continue to take attunements for myself and enjoy channelling attunements, which also help me as well as others! I believe we never stop learning and growing, so I make sure that I am continuously developing my spiritual practices.
My main gift has always been clairaudience, but over time this has developed into all the ‘clairs’, which you can read more about on my ‘Freebies’ page as I have written about what each one is there. These gifts help me in my healing work as Spirit gives me direction and knowledge about someone’s energy and how they are feeling. I also use these gifts to write my energy updates.
I decided to set up Violet-Light in 2012 and I quit my corporate job in 2014 to focus on my business and had a complete change of lifestyle! I moved out of London, went travelling for a year with my Soulmate, Luke and we have now settled in Somerset with our two dogs, Molly & Arnie, and our two cats, Spirit & Simba!
I decided to change my website completely in November 2016 to Blissfully Free as previously I had Violet-Light for all my energy work and Spiritual Delights as my online store. I decided to change the name as well as the whole look and feel as the energies have changed, I have changed, so my business also needed to change! My store and services are now altogether and the name for me is what we are all working towards!! I hope you enjoy browsing Blissfully Free and I look forward to connecting with you.
I love what I do and I am so grateful to be on this journey with you as not only am I able to fulfill my soul purpose, but each person I connect with also helps me learn and grow too.
