Monthly Women’s Circle Space
Our first circle on Wednesday 22nd July 7.30pm will be held on Zoom. The circle will look a little like this:
Opening space and meditation
Sharing circle, each participant will have an opportunity to share

A spiritual awakening can be gentle or fierce, sudden or slow burning, its different for everyone and there aren’t any rules on how it should or could happen to you.
An awakening is a releasing of the ego, a time in someones life, when their ego begins to weaken and they start to connect with something higher, the soul, the spirit, the higher self. A person begins to see the world through new eyes, belief systems are questioned, depending on the culture lived in, perhaps religious dogma will be challenged, or consumerism, capitalism, materialism, no longer make sense.
On a personal level, an awakening can create more awareness of how we function in life, our emotional triggers and patterns, how we treat others and how we allow others to treat us. Old emotions can be healed as we realise the ego is holding onto old grudges, resentments, judgements and past injustices. The need to be right and to be the best, to win, to have status, money, power, control, this begins to dissipate as an awakened being sees the truth, that love, compassion, kindness are important more than anything and a relationship with the divine consciousness is vital, as that divine love melts away pain and the suffering of the ego.
Then I woke up!
In 1998, whilst pregnant with my first daughter Betsy, I began to have experiences that I could not deny. Very real and obvious visions, dreams, messages and endless coincidences and synced events that I could not ignore what was happening.
The first visions I had were so simple, I would close my eyes perhaps to take a nap or meditate and I would see shapes, silhouettes of very random items that I would then see later that day. Once, there was a shape of a toy that a visiting family brought with them later that afternoon, the face of a person I would then bump into in the supermarket a few hours later, letters with company logos on them that would then arrive in the post. That ‘deja vu’ feeling was heightened and I’d realise an event that was happening during the day, I’d dreamt the night before. It was gentle, nothing crazy or mind-blowing at first, just simple nudges that let me know something was happening.
I had a dream one night when I was in the last few months of pregnancy that I have never forgotten and I’m reminded of frequently. In this inspiring dream, a friend of mine Nick Cadman, pointed to a beautiful, coloured bird and said “See that bird, how can you not believe that there is a God when you look at a stunning creature like that?”. I awoke the next morning in my ground floor South London flat and sat on the fence outside my kitchen window, was a Jay, all gorgeous and blue feathered, I stood there, huge belly and a cup of tea in my hand, absolutely stunned.
Over the past 22 years I have seen Jay’s frequently, early on after the dream I would see them the day before something significant would happen to me, not always positive events, it felt as though the Jay was a messenger from the Gods, letting me know they were there, not to worry, I was safe, protected and to watch out.
The last time I saw a Jay was on the 31st October 2018, in a clients garden where I was giving her a massage, the day before I made the decision to give up alcohol, the most incredible, fearless year of my whole life, was to follow.
In the years that followed my first spiritual experiences, they came often. I had been suffering with anxiety for many years and after the birth of Betsy, living in London and in an unhappy marriage, panic attacks were becoming common and debilitating. In 1999, my mother-in-law at the time, gave me a cassette of what I would now call ‘Yoga Nidra Meditation’. It was incredible, she had been using it to help with some tension, but for me it was literally mind blowing!
I would put the cassette on whilst Betsy was having her afternoon nap and I began to feel transported to another dimension entirely. It was very scary at first but also so intriguing and impossible not to want to try again and again. I would feel lifted out of my body, I would see and hear all kinds of people, faces, places, I had no idea what was happening, I was awake and really aware, not asleep, I now know what I was experiencing is called Lucid Dreaming.
Some of the experiences were messages for me, I remember very clearly being told ‘We are very pleased with you’, I will never forget that it was amazing. I would see a ring of peoples faces looking down on me, like a circle of angels all looking in to see how I was doing. Then it felt as though I was being educated by my angels. They would show or tell me things and I had a sense that I was meant to then begin to research that further online, find books, or watch films. This started with a clear vision of a DNA Spiral, that led me to one of the first books that really showed me something I’d never known of before, ‘DNA and the Cosmic Serpent’ by Jeremy Narby, all about Shamanic Amazonian Tribes and the mind altering plant Ayahuasca. I was shown Fractals that led me to begin to explore the Crop Circle phenomenon in the Uk, particularly the Julia Set Crop Circle at Stonehenge of 1996 that I found quite astonishing in its beauty. This fascination went on for many years and I still love to look at the circles as they told me just looking at that them was helping us to open up our DNA codes, a little like looking at a Mandala.
I was shown incredible visions, like blueprints for what looked like cars and machinery, co-ordinates for parts of the world I had never been to, I seemed to be surfing some kind of cosmic web, past and future, other dimensions all coming together at once, as I was in deep meditation. I had a conversation with a young man in the army who had had a motorbike accident, but had not yet realised he had passed away, he was fine and it didn’t feel strange, he then said goodbye and went to the Light. I saw disasters, rubble, brief visions of destruction, but nothing ever scared me, it was like I was watching a movie but completely detached from it. These are just a few of the visions I had, it was constant and daily, like another world.
The only time I would come back feeling unsettled would be when I would sometimes feel knocked, bumped, prodded or if my name was called very loudly. All of these happened sometimes, once a bird flew into my face, I’d wake up with a jolt, often coughing, it was like I was being shaken spiritually to wake up not only back into my reality, but also more deeply to wake up to my soul.
Looking back its wonderful to remember these experiences from over 20 years ago. All of this was happening to me, over a period of a few years, in our flat in East Dulwich, often with Betsy curled up next to me having her long afternoon naps. Life was very hard then, my mental health was at a terrible low, I was very unhappy and struggling. I had no one to share any of these experiences with at all, I mentioned something to my then husband a few times and he told me I was obviously even more crazy than he had thought. I kept quiet and never once spoke a word to my friends, who I can’t imagine would have understood, or I just wasn’t prepared to take the chance and be further ridiculed.
My children have always been the ones to keep me grounded and sane. I often wonder how much of what was happening to me, was also happening to Betsy, my gorgeous, cheeky little girl, who would often lie next to me. I’ve been told since, when I later met Wren Murray, that Betsy was bringing a lot of this energy in for me.
During my second pregnancy with little Mimi, I would talk to her, she was an old lady and the soul that was going to come and be my baby. I didn’t realise that until I was going into labour in the early hours and I saw this old lady lying in a bed with her husband. A voice said ‘she’s ready to come’, and another said ‘but I’m still here’, it was as though Mimi was in a transitional space between one life and another, four hours later she was born and has brought me nothing but joy for the past 17 years.
Finally, after seven years of awful marriage it ended, January 2004. By September of the same year, I was starting to see my angels, a giant blue orb of Light. Seeing this, really scared me at first and sent me into complete melt down, but through the incredible support of my loving mother Pat, who helped me recalibrate, ground back down and then found me my first Reiki teacher, I settled into this new being as though life had always brought such gifts to my door. I honestly believe my angels were waiting for my husband to get out the picture, so they could really start to work with me, they knew I would never be fully able to embrace them so long as he was in the way.
I don’t know why I had the experiences I did early on, or why it took so many years for me to begin to understand what I was perhaps meant to be doing here to help others. But I am so grateful for what happened to me then. I feel that a lot of my experience was around the time that the energy on the planet was shifting rapidly, a lot of people, like me, were waking up.
A lot of us had been through the ‘rave’ years of the late 80s and early 90s, a lost youth culture trying to make sense of a lost world. Looking for our tribes and turning to drugs to replicate almost exactly what I now feel, when my angels bring me beautiful healing. A little like the hippies of the 60s, we were that next generation looking for something other than what life offered. It does not surprise me that the feeling of ecstasy we all felt whilst dancing in fields at parties back then, is so incredibly similar and loved filled as a spiritual experience. I love that so many seekers I have met a long the way, were also in those fields searching for their missing parts, I love that so many of us did find those parts eventually, our souls and now we are using everything we learnt and the struggles we had, to help others to heal. Beautiful.
The next chapter of my spiritual journey took me on the most incredible ride. A single mum with three beautiful children, Lenny arrived in 2005 and I lived alone with them all until 2017. The visions and guidance began to consolidate, I listened more, followed the steps I was being asked to tread, I found God, a Divine connection that changed me so much I wonder if people I knew back in the late 90s wonder what on earth happened! This crazy, party, wild child, found herself, thank goodness xx
How could I ever have known, listening to that old cassette tape, exhausted, anxious, self-destructive and in a terrible state, that life was going to be come one big, long, magical adventure.
Part 3 coming soon, thank you so much for taking the time to read my story so far. Love Saira xxx
Many of you will have known me for many years for my yoga teaching and retreats, some will have come to me for therapies and healing in the past, but I haven’t always been quite so open about my true spiritual connection. Recently, events around the world have led me to feel that I need to be more honest, open, share my truth and the channeled messages and meditations, the healing that comes to me and pass it onto you all, if you would like it.
This is me, outing myself to you whether you know me or not, as a totally cosmic out there lady!
How it all started
I first started channelling through spirit guides in 1998, whilst pregnant with my first daughter Betsy, it came out of nowhere and suddenly my inner world transformed as I began a tentative communication with something I knew little of, and very rarely spoke of to anyone for many many years. It was quite isolating and if I’m honest, yes, at times I thought I had gone completely crazy! In 2004 after the birth of my second daughter Mimi and shortly before becoming pregnant with my third little cosmic bundle, Lenny, I started to also see Angels, or as I prefer to call them, Lightbeings.
The first Lightbeing I ever had the privilege to see, was a huge blue orb. It was at least 1.5m in diameter and the light shining from it radiated out in rays, it hovered in the air for a few incredible moments, right between Betsy (then 4 years old) and I, as I left her room after saying goodnight. I was in complete shock after witnessing this at first, it took me many weeks to fully recover from what I had witnessed and Betsy slept in my bed for a while too!
I am completely convinced that my children bring a lot of the energy I feel to me, the fact it all started during my first pregnancy and that all my children, now aged 14,17 & 21 are very connected to the energy themselves, I think my children helped me to awaken.
Once the shock had subsided, life transformed. I was introduced to a beautiful local woman named Wren Murray. Wren worked with powerful healing energy, Shamanic work and mediumship. She came to see me at home and told me I had a gift as a healer, she showed me how to work with the energy and that the Lightbeings were coming to me now, because they had been trying to connect with me for years, but I’d not really been listening. They’d tried many, soft, gentle methods to get me to accept and work with them, but they’d tired of the gentle approach and so had come to me in a way that was impossible to ignore and that would set me on the right path after too many years of distractions.
How do I see and feel my Spirit Guides
I see my spirit guides as Light, sometimes large or sometimes tiny blue orbs, white crystalline light or swirling lights that spiral like DNA in the air. I feel it too, I walk around most days with a pressure around my temples, it gets stronger when my guides want me to listen more intently, or I’ll hear a high pitched sound or feel a lightness on my cheek that just reminds me to stop, to tune in and to hear deeply. When I’m working, either remotely or with someone in the room with me, it can get so strong its really intense around my head. I think of it sometimes like spirit is holding me as if they are giving me the healing energy so I can pass it on. Imagine someone stood behind you with their hands around the sides of your head, that is what I feel most of the time during the day.
Since 2004 when things really started to happen, I have followed their guidance and surrendered to a path that I feel has been mapped out, step by step, by these Light-guides. I trust them completely and my business, Mellulah, would not exist or have had the success it has, had I not listened and followed the journey they have led me on, and done what I was told to do, over and over again to bring me to here, today.
Channeling and receiving messages has become so natural now I rarely think about it as being more than just part of life, but I realise it is very special and I do feel very honoured to have this connection. Sometimes I am just given advice or guidance for my own personal life or where to take steps or move away from things in my work. But often the communication is much more about all humanity, the energy coming in, the vibration that is changing in some way.
Also I am told what is needed in a yoga class or on a retreat, what to say during a meditation, most of my work is not pre-planned, and if I do plan it, that often goes out the window when you all arrive and I am given guidance of what is needed at that time.
So I am beginning to share more openly now and have been putting my recent channeled messages online via social media and youtube the past few weeks, the response from you all has been so lovely, to know it is really helping you is beautiful. I also started the healing group to send distant healing which I am delighted to know is helping many of you at this time.
Meeting my spirit guides
I first felt introduced personally to my Lightbeings in 2006 when I was living in a beautiful, quiet, tucked away place called Happy Bottom in Dorset. My children were still very young and I had cut myself off from the past and found a little cottage in the woods to retreat and spend some time being a hermit for a few years after divorce and a hard time.
They first called themselves the ‘Earth Priests’,there were three of them and this led me into exploring some of the ancient Earth based traditions like Paganism, Druidism and I loved reading and educating myself on the traditions we had in England many years ago. Much of this was so connected to yoga and Eastern traditions but just lost along the way, particularly by the Inquisition that annihilated these beautiful rituals and ceremonies from society and from our history books.
In 2008, I took an amazing trip to Arizona in the US and visited a number of ancient Navajo sites. It was during a guided tour at Palatki, that I managed to find a few moments in an ancient cave by myself, slipping away from the group. There I began to see incredible lights, filling the space with white light and spiralling silhouettes of figures began to appear. Here I met the Earth Priests I’d been communing with for the past 2 years, they gave me their names, Erinkudo, Erinyama and Donashtiyamo.
Since then I have met many spirit guides, you will too. We are sent different guides for certain periods in our lives, for me the Lightbeings who have stayed close, are there to help me with my work. They help me to tune into people to help them heal, they show me the next step but never the whole picture. I am guessing as much as anyone, I don’t know exactly how things will work out, I have to trust implicitly that if I leap, I will land, eventually.
Its an adventure! An adventure that I am grateful for everyday.

I regularly offer ‘live’ guided mediations on social media that you can join, so follow me on all the apps you use and you’ll be notified when I am doing the next healing share.
The energy this weekend with the very powerful once again as we move through the third Eclipse in a month. It is very important that we join together for collective healing at this time, the time to think of ourselves as just individual has gone and now we must feel the organic aliveness of being connected to a team consciousness of all humanity.
What is it you want to see change in the world today? What first comes to mind, can you envisage it? Do you need to clear out old set ways of thinking about how the world has to be? Does the world have to be full of war, destruction, hunger, poverty, violence, scarcity, injustice? Or have we just been conditioned into believing there is no other way? Are you able to think out of this narrow world view and feel and believe that peace is possible? That abundance for all, justice for all and happiness for all is a possibility? If you find it hard to work through your conditioning to be able to see a new world, its time to work hard this weekend.
Join me for this live healing, to work together to bring about a new world vision full of hope XX
This Live session will guide you into a deep healing meditation where I will send beautiful energy to you as well as guiding you into setting clear intentions for this powerful time, both individually and collectively we must work together to focus our awareness on Peace, Love, Light, Healing, Equality, Justice & Transformation. The time has come for us all to work in bringing about this Great Change.
Bring Yourself, your Light, your Spirit, your Presence and your Heart
I will also play you my Crystal Singing Bowl and lull you into rest to finish xx
I’d love you to join this Live session and sit with me if you can, the session will be available to watch anytime afterwards too.
Love Saira xx
Recent Channeled Messages
June 4th 2020
“I received a message this morning that the Light coming into our planet at the moment is more powerful than anything we’ve felt before, no human being on Earth will have felt it like this in their lives.
It is so strong it is literally burning into us, you might feel sensations in your body, particularly during meditation or the moments drifting into sleep.
It’s likely you’ll experience something like pushing, maybe around your temples, cheeks or upper chest. This is the Light energy reaching into you for deep healing, activating and awakening parts of you and easing long term suffering. This isn’t an overnight process and might just be the beginning of transformation for us.
They told me the Light energy coming to us now is stronger than any love a human can feel, stronger than any healer has shared, it is pure, celestial energy that is able to reach us now as never before.
If you find this process uncomfortable, breathe deeply, create an inner smile to banish fear, do yoga, eat well and rest and if you are troubled by what you feel, reach out to me and share”
Set aside time to become aware of your mind and your thoughts.
How are you really doing?
As Mental Health Awareness Week runs 18th – 24th May, now is a good time to ask yourself that question. This week there will be lots in the news and on social media about mental health and wellbeing and I’m sure that lots of other spiritual teachers like me, will be sharing their offerings and the tools that they use to help themselves and others.We are all experiencing the lockdown around the globe in different ways, some are finding it a beautiful, quiet time, in solitude or with loved ones, a time to reflect, go slow and reassess life. Others are finding it traumatic, separation, serious financial concerns, anxiety and fear.If you already suffer with mental health issues, anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD or have a serious health condition, its likely this has been exacerbated for you over the past months.
My mental health in the past, often made life a living nightmare. Severe anxiety, panic attacks, depression, addiction issues and post-traumatic stress made every day a battle. But I did pull through that, and you can to. It is a battle to get well and to find peace and we all manage life in different ways, but I hope that my journey can inspire you to trust that there is a way out.
I took the long way round and life didn’t transform for me overnight, there isn’t always a quick fix. But we can take steps everyday towards wellness, a little gentle relief and a feeling of peace, a slither of Light that chinks into your being, gives you hope, lets you know that there is another way. Read more about my personal story here.
Here are just a few tips tiny steps you could during Mental Health Awareness Week to take towards a happier place, today:
Start to notice your thoughts, are they always negative? Do you judge yourself critically all the time? Do you feel that others judge you the same way?
Once you become aware of the thoughts, start to focus on new, positive thoughts throughout the day.
Create ‘Positive Affirmations’ write them down, put them on post its around your house. Try “I am perfect just as I am”, “I deserve to be loved”, “Everything will be ok, we are all safe and well”.
Find your own affirmation that feels right, repeat to yourself EVERY time you notice yourself going deeply into negative, worrying or scared thinking.
Practise meditation daily. Try an app like Headspace, Calm, Smiling Mind. Or go to Youtube and search forone that resonates.
Allow emotions and feelings to come up, don’t push them away or they become repressed.
Talk to someone, if you can’t see a counsellor now, talk to a friend or loved one, don’t keep it in. Lots of counsellor are seeing clients virtually online, so you might be able to find one.
Let the tears come, tears are cleansers for the heart, let them flow, be as vocal as you need to be!
Get out in nature. We know this one don’t we? But still we need reminding how vital this is to our mental health.
‘Earth’ yourself for at least 10 minutes a day, bare foot, or if possible lie face down on bare earth, grass, sand. Sit in the roots of a tree, hug it too!
Practise yoga daily, just a few minutes. Yoga helps to release old, stagnant, toxic energy from our bodies. When the body is stuck in the past, we can’t move forward, release that by moving through poses, deeply stretching and you will feel a change, often straight away. Yoga feels good! It saved me!
Think of what you allow into your mind, in the same way as what you allow into your body. Go on a cleanse for the mind, a diet! Only put in the good stuff, the positive.
Turn off the news, its as bad for you as that McDonalds burger! Fill your space with inspiring audio books, beautiful music, read spiritual books and watch or listen to spiritual teachers.
Don’t beat yourself up. If we are trying to get well and all we do is critize ourselves for not doing it fast enough, or telling ourselves we’re not good enough, judging our ability to meditate or do yoga or stay mindful, its just more negativity. You’re doing your best, it will come in time.
You’re doing your best. Life is hard sometimes, everyone struggles and has ups and downs, anyone who tells you different is probably lying! Don’t expect miracles (but do too as they can happen!) becoming mentally well won’t make life perfect, but it will help you deal with the challenges as they come.
Stay strong. Become a Warrior, believe in yourself and your ability to get through this, have your bad days but keep telling yourself that you will pull through, if you believe life can be better, you will draw that happier future towards you.
Use your mind for what its best at, making things up! Rather than allowing the mind to make up all kinds of negative and tragic scenarios, use it to imagine wonderful, beautiful, happy situations. It might seem silly and woo-woo to think that way, but whats more silly and futile? It is all made up after all isn’t it, the mind makes up stories, fairytales that are entirely fantasy, we don’t know whats coming, we have no idea at all, so instead get creative and think about love, joy, picnics on the beach, dancing with loved ones, smiling, contentment, stunning landscapes, laughter, you feeling well, being amazing and the imperfect perfection that you are.
Listen to the silence, in between the noise, there you will find the answers, the wisdom, the guidance that you need to carry on.
I hope you find Mental Health Awareness week an opportunity to focus on you, Love from Saira xx

Caroline Measures – Sound Healer, NLP, EFT, Meditation Teacher and founder of Sunshine Therapies & Retreats in Dorset
Caroline will offer us a short guided meditation during the retreat day and exclusive access to a gong bath meditation via Youtube. (Sound does not carry well via Zoom so we are offering the sound healing through Youtube for you to experience at the end of the day or in your own time, where the healing vibes of the gong can be more appreciated.) Caroline has a large toolkit to cater for everyone’s needs, including Gong Sound Healing, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, Massage, Reflexology, Reiki and Meditation.
Sammie McFarland – owner of The Breathing Space in Dorset, award winning Pilates teacher
Sammie is passionate about movement and its helped her cope with her own health issues that she has had since she was a young child. Her Restorative Pilates workshop will guide you into a deep stretch and thorough relaxation where you can give yourself complete permission to let go, surrender into peace and stillness and release in both body, mind and spirit.
This day is open to all and will also be available as replay with private access on Youtube to anyone who would like to enjoy but can’t due to family commitments at home (noisy kids!)
Everyday at 4pm I’m sending healing to everyone in the group, you can sit and receive at 4pm or trust it will reach you when the time is right, you’re also welcome to join and send healing too if you wish.
I’m a Reiki master teacher and I’ve been working with angelic healing energy since 2004 when I starting seeing and hearing Light-beings, the experience changed my life and set me on a path that has been a true adventure ever since.
We are moving through a planetary shift now that will bring great change to us all, it will be challenging for many but in time, our world will be more peaceful and equal, we will look back and remember this time we are experiencing now, as the turning point.
We need healing for ourselves, others and the planet, I hope you can join my group and enjoy this celestial energy to help you through this shift.
If you would like to join without being part of the FB group, please give me your name, you can also add friends and family names too, there is no limit to how much energy there is to share!
Not everyone is able to practise full yoga poses but yoga is for everyone, so here we work with some chair yoga, lovely yoga stretches and twists to release out, relax and find an awareness of the body, all sat in a chair.
