The idea for Moon in Libra was birthed in Spring 2020 as a result of my attunement to Archangel Metatron with my own spiritual teacher Amanda Ellis. The idea for my Self Exploration course came to me on the very day that I had my attunment and by the end of the day I knew I was going to be creating this website and amalgamating all the knowledge and experience that I have acquired into one melting pot.
I am a mother of 3 children who I home educate in Wolverhampton UK. I met my husband online – before it was socially acceptable to meet people via the internet. Dating websites were not a thing in those days. We met via a website called ICQ. He did a random search for someone to chat with and ICQ randomly chose me!
At the time I met my husband I was suffering with severe anxiety disorder and depression. Soon after we met I moved from my home town of Deal in Kent up to Wolverhampton to be with him, and so began my journey to healing. But like many healing journeys it was going to get worse before it got better. When I moved to Wolverhampton to be with my husband I had just completed a National Diploma in Music Technology and an English A Level. Moving up to Wolverhampton I decided to go in a completely different direction and when my eldest daughter was 1, I enrolled in Wolverhampton college and gained qualifications in Anatomy and Physiology, Swedish Massage and Aromatherapy. I had visions of one day owning my own massage therapy studio, but after a bad experience with a male client I made the choice to go back to studying and enrolled at Wolverhampton University studying English Literature which I loved and gained a 2:1 degree, I had to take a year off in between as I had our 2nd child in Feb 2009. We moved to North Wales for a time and during this time I went on to study a post graduate diploma at Liverpool John Moore’s university in Library and Information Studies.
We moved back to Wolverhampton in 2012, during this year I lost my Dad who had moved away when I was 6 years old and lived apart from me for all of my life. It was a very strange and surreal time, having come to terms with losing my Dad once, I now had to come to terms with losing him for good.
In Feb 2013 our youngest daughter, my rainbow baby after 2 painful miscarriages, was born. The same year that my youngest daughter was born I made the choice to take my eldest daughter out of school and home educate her. This was a very difficult time. Looking back now I can identify that I was suffering with Post Natal Depression, and this on top of my already and ever present anxiety along with external factors that are personal in nature but that led to extreme stress for me, resulted in a break down. This was the most intense dark night of the soul I have experienced around this time and as often happens during times like this and as discussed within my Self Exploration course, the darkest of times often trigger within us a Spiritual awakening. I began to go within, to meditate, to want to heal myself, to realise for the first time in my life that it is only by doing work on myself that I would be able to heal the emotional and mental turmoil that I experienced so often in my life.
I began to meditate daily. I began to study Wicca and magic, I learned about rituals and began to explore the idea of self empowerment. I talked to like minded people and discovered that I was not alone in my search for magic and miracles. Miracles for me back then took the form of me finally beginning to feel able to cope with life, with people, with speaking to other people without wanting the ground to swallow me. I discovered that miracles are not things that are performed by enlightened beings for us mere mortals but that miracles are often those things that happen that you thought were completely out of your reach. I created my own miracles. I began to experience synchronicity, guidance and confirmation that I was on the right path and I discovered the meaning of the word Faith.
In 2017 my Mum passed away. Losing my Mum was very different to losing my Dad. The death of my Mum was like nothing else I had experienced in my life. For a while I couldn’t meditate! I could do nothing it seemed to me apart from think about how much I missed her. Soon after my Mum passed away, I was invited to lead guided meditation sessions at the social group that my Mum had attended in the last few years before her death. These sessions were so wonderful it was great knowing I had really helped people. I also volunteered at a bereavement hub. I wanted to help those who had lost someone they loved, I discovered Soul Midwifery and took the Introductory course in Birmingham in Nov 2019. It was wonderful and this something I will definitely be studying and offering in years to come.
In 2018 I reconnected to my guide Lord Ganesha and I began to slowly rebuild my spiritual practise, asking Ganesha for guidance. Ganesha guided me into the study of Archangel Metatron. A being that I had experienced contact with during a guided group meditation back in 2015. During this meditation I had seen Metatron clearly in a vision and I remember feeling completely energised by his presence. It took another 3 years for me to find my way back to Metatron, this time I was led to Amanda Ellis. I remember feeling completely at home the first time I watched Amanda’s videos. I resonate with her teachings completely and the synchronicity around her was incredible. To the point where I would think something right before she said it in the video. So I knew right away that I had to follow this and as mentioned earlier, in June 2020 I took Amanda’s level 1 course, Archangel Metatron Colour Healing, and from there Moon in Libra was born!!
Since then I have been working on writing my course of meditations, incorporating all that I have learned, studied and experienced. I am very excited as to where this journey will lead, I look forward very much to helping others with my meditations, readings and healing.
