Everyone Needs Some Me Time to Relax and Center

We all have days we wish we could just hibernate and hide from everyone. This is when you need to have a special care package ready to go to relax you physically and mentally and recenter yourself spiritually.

I have a small kit made up in advance for when I take this me time. Mine includes a long incense sticks or cones of either sandalwood or jasmine (lavender is also very good for relaxing with), my favorite Celtic music bookmarked on my computer to find it easier, a big handful of my favorite Epsom salts in a Ziploc type bag or other holder, a smudge stick, a bar of scents soap, a black taper and a white taper candle, my favorite lotion, and a robe (type depends on the temperature in my home). I also shut off my cell/mobile phone and anything else that someone could call me on like Skype.

Allow a minimum of 2 hours for yourself to get the benefits you deserve.

I do a smudging in my den and bathroom and also myself. Then get into my usually hot bath with the salts. I soak for a while until I feel my muscles completely relax m(draining cooled water and adding more hot if I feel the need to) than I use one of my scented soaps to wash with (my hair is tied up because I wash it in the sink before getting into my bath or just leave dry, no one says you have to wash your hair just because you take a bath). After getting out of the bath and drying off I rub lotion on every part of my body I can comfortably reach just to feel the wonder of what the deities choose to make us into thousands of years ago.

Then if I feel like it put on my robe and go into my den or bedroom. Depending on my mood whether I stay in the robe or lay down skyclad.

Once in my den or bedroom,  I have a small table next to the daybed in my den so the black candle is set on the southwest corner and the white in the northeast. I light the black candle first asking Hades and Persephone to take away all the negative energy, anger, resentment, envy, etc I may still be harboring inside myself.  Next, I  light the white candle asking Ra and Mother Earth to fill me with love, positive energy and to be grounded. I then light the incense I choose while enjoying the scent of the incense and listening to the music  I do a relaxation technique (which I will describe below) and then I let my mind to float free not focusing on any one thought especially if it is a negative one. I usually wind up falling asleep and many times have had messages and/or vision brought to me by my ancestors, guides, some deities. These dreams I write down what I can remember of them when I awaken. The dreaming does not happen every time.

The two most important things to take away from this experience is one does not feel guilty for taking the time to pamper and nurture yourself because we all need to. The other thing is to take a is relaxed, centered mind, body, and spirit from reconnecting them all.

RELATION TECHNIQUE: Starting with your toes and working up the body tighten each muscle as you take as deep a breath as you can then allow the muscle to completely relax as you slowly exhale all the air you took in. This should take you at least 15 to 20 minutes to get all your muscles relaxed and your mind to slow down.

A great place you can get your incense, soap, candles and smudge sticks is Magickal Necessities. Below are the links for the items available:

Drawing Down the Sun

I think sometimes as a witch the moon tends to get pride of place and the sun perhaps takes a back seat?  But it is an incredibly powerful source of natural energy and magic.  If you assign to the ‘general’ school of thought about gender (although it differs in cultures and beliefs) the sun is a very strong masculine energy that balances with the feminine energy of the moon.

How does the sun make you feel?  When the sun shines on a beautiful spring day after we have been subjected to rain, wind and snow.   Turning your face and feeling the warm rays of sun.  Having a picnic in the park or sitting on the beach on a warm summers day.  Makes you feel mighty fine, that’s how it makes you feel!

ASCENSION UPDATE: ENERGY SURGES BECOMING MORE INTENSE| PUBLIC PERSONALITIES TRANSITION

The energy surge was ONE of the most INTENSE we have ever had. This shows the ENERGY SURGES  are becoming more intense.  As I said in my two articles I wrote in that time period, I could barely move for the days this went on. My limbs felt so heavy, unlike any other solar wind/geo magnetic storm event in the past. I have been through more energy waves than I could ever count and the early days are nothing like what we are dealing with now.

The early days were intense but in a different way. When we had an Energy wave come in back then, it many times was not from solar storms or increased solar wind but instead it came in all on it’s own. We still have these but not as often now. That does not mean anything, the Universe has to go through cycles giving us many different kinds of energy to transform our light bodies. We must accept what the Universe gives us and not resist it, as all resistance makes things worse. We must realize we are DEEPLY in the Ascension Process and will be going through intense changes going forward. We wanted this and now it is here.!

Do second-hand clothes contain psychic energy?

I have a beautiful crocheted shawl that my mom used in church every Sunday. I’m the last almost four years since she has crossed into the Summerlands to be with my dad, seven younger siblings, my son that crossed over and our ancestors I feel myself drawn to wrapping the shawl around my shoulders during very stressful times, illnesses, and when I am in a downward spiral of depression. I can feel her warmth, love, and comfort every time I wear it. I keep it on the back of a year that was her grandmother’s in my den/altar room when not using it and have not felt the need to wash it because it is as bright of white as the day I inherited, the day of her funeral service my youngest daughter gave it to me.

As I am not feeling so good after having three teeth pulled Wednesday afternoon. I was instant messaging with one of my mom’s cousins, whom I found out follows a spirituality similar to mine. She made a statement she wished she lived closer so she could give me some surrogate mother’s TLC. Which made me think of my shawl and immediately wrapped in around me and felt slightly better. So it got me wondering if we leave a residual energy on clothing and if others besides empath could pick up on it. The following is an article I found on this topic

 

People wear used clothing for many reasons. One might purchase a dress in a thrift shop, receive an old pocketbook from a friend who no longer uses it or simply exchange used clothes with others as a way to save money.  But can those second-hand items contain the psychic energy of their former owners? Many spiritual healers say yes.

We are always emitting energy, and our energy is infused in our clothing and the many objects around us. If you’ve ever walked into a room and felt your mood shift, you may have experienced the impact of one’s energy on his or her surroundings.

Why Smudging Your Body With White Sage Is A Must For Every Highly Sensitive Warrior (A Guide To Smudging)

Smudging is the ancient practice of burning medicinal, sacred herbs with the intention of clearing the energy of your home, office, an object, or yourself. It corrects and balances the energy, immediately. It cleanses negativity and even kills germs, as this article states. It’s like taking an energetic shower!

White Sage is one of the more popular smudging herbs used, oftentimes in bundle form (otherwise known as a smudge stick). However, White Sage is often combined with other sacred herbs, such as Cedar, Sweetgrass, Mugwort, Yerba Santa, and Lavender.

Smudging can done by burning smudge sticks or loose herb. But, either way you burn it, once you bless yourself with this White Sage smoke, those dark energies will start running for the hills. And, that’s definitely a good thing!

Chakras and Auras – How they Work Together

Did you ever wonder what the differences are between chakras and auras?  Or how they work together?  Did you ever think it might be useful to know?  (Hint:  It is)

Understanding these energy centers is one way to enhance your spiritual unfoldment, psychic development, and gain more insight into this wild ride we call life.

An Overview of Chakras and Auras

Your Chakras

Chakras are multi-colored, beautiful spinning wheels in our energy fields.  I like to envision them as the spinning pinwheels I had when I was a kid.

We have seven main chakra points.  (Some people believe we have many, many more, including hundreds of “mini-chakras”.)  Here are the main ones:

The Uses of Spirals in Spirituality – Printable

Many cultures and spiritual practices use spirals in many different ways. Some of these ways are for face and body art or a way of meditation or a way to honor those who have gone to the Summerland before them or ways that have been lost to history. Spirals do not only include circles but many other shapes as well such as the ancient sites in South America and England.

I have made a set of spirals for you to be able to trace with your finger for relaxation, mediation, specific elemental energies or even working both sides of your brain. To do this trace first with one hand for a while and then switch to the other one, each time you do it switch with hand you start with. It is also good for keeping your fingers nibble so use a different finger each time you use it.

Try drawing your own designs to follow too.

Trace green for Earth/grounding and blue for Water/calm your emotions.

Trace the red for Fire when you need more energy/ the yellow is for Air to help with thinking more clearly or for help with studying

Trace the black to help you did yourself of negativity then the white to bring positive  energy back into yourself. Bring yourself back into balance.

Something to Inspire You to Enjoy Our Bond with our Lady Goddesses and this Weekend or Any Day!

I was listening to this first song “Grandmother” and just had to sing along. Then came on the next song, one of my favorite pagan songs, “I Walk with the Goddess” and felt moved to dance and sing even louder. I was inspired to feel the love of the Goddess more through moving, singing, and clapping (I broke my drum a while back) with songs honoring her than I have felt in months. So I took time out to share this with you the playlist I am listening to. Turn up your volume, singing as loud as you want – no matter whether you think you cannot sing or not the Goddess does not care how you sound – now get your feet and arms or at least your arms moving. The Goddess does not care how our voice sounds or what we think we look like dancing she cares about the energy shared back and forth between her and you when interacting with her this way. So move, sing, most importantly have some fun this weekend with our Lady Goddesses!!!!! If it is nice weather go out and enjoy Mother Earth waking up in the Northern Hemisphere and going to sleep in the Southern Hemisphere.
