Emerald Alignment: Agent Of Change

This updated blog was first written in 2006  but so much has changed since then.  Hopefully, in the current turmoil, my words will encourage you to reduce your own stress levels and discover your true purpose in life.

In the 1990s, in search of  the meaning of spirituality, I found an answer to my quest and my own healing . Healing was a word frowned upon in the UK National Health Trust (NHS) where I was currently employed as a speech and language therapist/specialist.  My therapeutic work involved coordinating and delivering an area wide service to adults with learning disabilities and children with special needs.  I  was continually searching for new and creative ways  of working to improve my clients’ communication without the need to ‘shine a light’ on their specific difficulty.   Over the years I had come to realise that an orthodox, symptom focused approach didn’t work.  Instead, if I engaged the adult or child in a creative and enjoyable shared activity of their choice, all aspects of their communication would spontaneously improve . When we are relaxed and happy, we are unaware of our problems and in this space healing can take place. This isn’t rocket science but it wasn’t the prescriptive way I was expected to work.

Meanwhile, my home life was running out of control.  I was in the throes of juggling a demanding full time job with supporting my mother in caring for my father with terminal illness and desperately struggling with the unhappiness of a troubled second marriage.  The emotional roller coaster of  being a mother to five children from my first marriage, three of whom my ex husband and I had fostered prior to adopting (the children were challenged by their own personal trauma), combined with the family problems associated with  three visiting teenage step daughters from my second marriage, was exhausting.   Not surprisingly, our family lurched from one crisis to another….. In an attempt to find some inner peace, I had read books on Buddhism and earnestly practised a plethora of meditation techniques without any noticeable success . My overactive mind interfered with any attempt to focus and still my thoughts .

Thankfully, my life turned a corner after overhearing a colleague’s conversation about a therapist and healer she was seeing locally.  I  impulsively requested the contact details of   Carol Lamb, the  therapist in question and  eagerly booked myself an appointment.    At the close of my first session,  Carol aligned my auric field with an Emerald Alignment ,  an attunement to  a higher stream of consciousness which I was told was the primary source of energy that governs the body and would forge a connection to my heart and my intuition to correct imbalance and restore stability ….an attractive prospect.   The alignment process had an immediate and positive effect .

Although excited by this new experience,  I was cautioned that before taking alignment to my clients, I would first need to exercise patience, gain understanding of the process and focus on my own mental health and alignment requirement (‘physician heal thyself’).   Determined to discipline myself to use the emerald alignment on a daily basis, I initially struggled with visualising the process of  light entering my body through the crown of my head. When I closed my eyes, I could only imagine a beam of crystal emerald light in front of me , not in me…. but this was a start.  Since that time, I realise that many people have difficulty visualising colour and this doesn’t matter because a key principle of healing is ‘energy follows thought‘ and if we listen to the words of the alignment and focus our thoughts and attention on the desired outcome, the action follows through.   I persevered and after several weeks, my ability to visualise the alignment process, dramatically improved.

As my emotional responses began to stabilise, I attracted less drama and homelife improved for everyone.  My fogged mind began to clear as anxiety lessened.  Up to that time, at the end of a busy day I had felt as though I was carrying a block of concrete on my shoulders and by the evening I  could barely turn my head from left to right.  Regular alignment practise was energising me, my senses were sharpening and I was increasingly aware of the colours of  the natural environment around me.  Instead of focusing inwards on my own anxieties,  I looked outwards and upwards at the sky instead of down at my feet.  With enhanced sensory awareness, I became aware of bird song,  the rustle of leaves, the splash of water,  the fragrance of a flower, a cool breeze .

With daily practice of the alignment exercise, my brain relaxed and I was prompted to meditate and I joined a group, rather than trying to meditate alone .   I became more confident about making decisions and enjoyment returned to my life.   Recognising dreams as intuitive messages, I kept a notebook and pencil next to my bed to write them down on waking.

At the beginning of 1999, in order to make sense of what was happening to me,  I trained with the  Academy of Spiritual Sciences .  Through the study of metaphysics and the principles of healing , I  recognised that  negative imprinted memory from past experience impacts on our beliefs, perception and behaviour. The transformative power of  the Emerald Alignment sustained me and opened and deepened my awareness.  Further training took me to past life work and as principal of the Academy of Spiritual Sciences and senior tutor therapist I was able to pass this understanding  to others who were eager to learn.

Spiritual exploration inspired an interest in the healing impact of sound vibration and specifically the human voice.  Through a direct experience of non local communication , as described in Carol’s book Born Remembering, I was given  deep insights into my work with adults with learning disabilities and children with special needs, which I have since documented in my blogs , radio interviews and research  Through this experience, I was  taught a unique system of eight chakra vocal tones which link to specific anatomical areas of the body and was asked to pass this effective system of self- help healing to all who would listen. I had had no previous understanding of toning but travelled internationally to teach this ancient and powerful system of healing through workshops and seminars.  Rainbow Chakra Tones has proved a popular self-help tool.  Leaving  speech and language therapy in 2003, Light Voice, an holistic consultancy practice was established which combines toning and colour with energy alignment, as a simple and effective healing process to strengthen and empower the voice.

The Emerald Alignment is now fully integrated into my daily practice, it plants me in the present moment, where I can choose to surrender my will to a higher authority and begin the real work of addressing negative patterns of behaviour that have impeded my spiritual  development.  Positive lifestyle choices and painful sacrifices have strengthened my resolve and have helped me to realise goals and aspirations that at one time had seemed an impossible dream.  An international online Tinnitus Clinic, helps to ease the suffering  of those brought to despair by this debilitating condition.  Clinical practice provides evidence for  my research in partnership with Carol Lamb at  the Living Memory Research Trust.

Don’t ever be afraid of your intuition and be open to different ways of working.

The Emerald Alignment can also be found on the Musical Medicine CD created by my good friend , colleague and composer Michael Kowalski.
