Sing Bowls Meditation

As I have only recently got my first sign bowl and really I had no idea of the proper way to use it, I signed up for a Sing Bowl Meditation in a new small store that opened in the spring only a few blocks from my home. The woman leading the session was kind enough to show me the correct way to use my small Tibetian sing bowl, purchased through Magical Necessities.

The session was amazing and if you ever have the chance to attend one I strongly suggest you do so. As many of you know I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease that has so far left me with vertabrate on vertabrate in my neck and is eating away at almost every disc in the rest of my back so needless to say I live daily with back pain. Now usually lying on a things blanket with a pillow propping up my knees for an hour straight I would have to have someone almost pick me up off the floor. After this meditation not only was I able to roll over on my own, I also needed no help getting up. Best part my back hasn’t felt this good in months!!!

One of the coolest things to happen during the meditation is for about half of it I was either hovering in the room watching how the facilitator was performing the ritual with the singing bowls to help each of the five different people attending and also astral traveling, part of which was with my traveling partner Starbabie who is one of my familiars joined me.

The only drawback I had with the experience last evening was when one of the bowls was placed over my heart chakra it immediately recombined my astral and physical bodies. I was not able to concentrate as well during the rest of the meditation. As we sat and talked about of experiences during the meditation I brought up my interrupted travels and never really got an answer as to why this was done to me. I am however going to ask when I attend the November session.

I will be researching on the proper use of signing bowls and pass the information along with the link for Magickal Necessities link for the singing bowl they sell.

Again if you get the chance to attend one of these group meditation sessions go for it!!

How to Calmly End a Stress Filled Day

This goes along with the day I had…LOL

The following is an easy form of meditation that can be done anywhere anytime you fell the need to ise it.

Believe me, it was a close call a couple of times but I did what anyone should do when confronted with stress or someone that is just thoroughly aggravating take a very deep breath (try to count slowly to at least five and work your way up until you can count to ten) and then let it out slowly (using the same counting system you used to inhale) using a keyword to help you relax, say as you let out the last part of your breath…do this three times. It really does help to lower stress, blood pressure, and the feeling of wanting to whack someone. My keyword is simple I just use the word ” RELAX.” I also use this a night when I have had a stress-filled day and am having a hard time going to sleep. Each time I say relax in my mind I can feel myself Sinking (for lack of a better-discripted word) into my mattress and pillow more. I am usually at least 2/3 of the way to sleep after the third breath.

 

Dear brothers and sisters may your slumber be restful and your dreams all pleasant ones.

NItey nite and until we meet again blessed be dear one.

Balancing Your Energy Body: A Complete Guide to Chakra Healing

Our Chakras

Everything in our universe is radiating energy, from the biggest mountain or ocean, to the tiniest blade of grass, to each individual cell in our body. All of our cells emit energy in different ways, and different cells will emit different kinds of energy depending on where they are located within the body and what their job is.

It should come as no surprise, then, that given the specialized nature of your body’s energy, there are several different channels located on key points of the body through which energy can flow in and out in a constant stream. These are called the chakras.

The word chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit, though these are not like any wheels we’ve ever seen. Chakra energy spins in a clockwise direction as it moves the energy of our body out into the field around us, and it spins counterclockwise to pull energy from our external world (and the people in it) into our body. It is the frequency state of our chakras that determines the direction our energy will flow as they either draw energy into our body or release it outward.

 

“There are several different channels located on key points of the body through which energy can flow in and out in a constant stream.”

Chakras, Colors, & Stones

 

The word Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit, there are 7 major energy centers in the human body (and hundreds of minor ones). Chakras receive, assimilate, and distribute energy throughout our energetic fields (auras). Each Chakra is unique as it has it’s own characteristics and functions. These 7 energy systems resonate and vibrate at the same frequency as their respective colors of the rainbow, and are the network through which the body, mind and spirit, can come together. Your chakras are also energy vortexes (disc) that distribute universal life force energy throughout the body. This life energy is called “Prana” and flows down through the top of your head (the crown chakra) through your spine, to your pelvic floor (root chakra).

Crystals corresponding to the Chakras

The Theme is- Activating and Cleansing your Chakras:

This full moon we will be harnessing the Lunar Energy. We will be activating our Chakras to realign our entire being and allowing the lunar energy to enter each Chakra for a healing aspect with the assistance of Selene. This is not drawing down the moon, it is using the moon energy, or what the old religion called the moons perspiration. It was from this perspiration that potions and spells were created from.

This mystical full moon ritual will assist in activating your Chakras to help you bring forth your best self.

 

Preparing your sacred space:

Take care to prepare your sacred space before the ritual, if you are unable to burn incense, please use the power of intention such as a white light showering you and your surroundings. For further information on how to cleanse your space please look in Coven Life or WOTC.

CEREMONY

If you have chosen a crystal corresponding to each Chakra please remember to hold it to the chakra as we go through the system …..

We will be spending one minute energising each Chakra. This process is important and should not be rushed.

Now begin to relax your body and clear your mind. Feel the magic coming from the moon (Selene) and notice a tingling sensation within.

Visualize the energy from each of your seven Chakras floating into Selene and becoming brighter in colour.

Next, beginning with your Root chakra visualize a red energy leaving Selene and reconnecting to your spine. You are now experiencing a greater sense of feeling balanced and grounded.

Turn your focus to your Sacral Chakra and visualize an orange energy flowing from Selene and circling around your navel. You are feeling limitless creativity and confidence.

Now, at your Solar plexus begin to visualize the yellow energy flowing from Selene to your stomach, filling you up with empowerment and strength.

As the colours continue to move and transform from Selene concentrate on your Heart Chakra. Visualize a loving green energy flowing from Selene to your heart. As it penetrates your heart, you begin to feel love, happiness, joy and peace.

Now moving up to your Throat Chakra, begin to visualize a blue energy leaving Selene and directly connecting to your throat. You begin to feel expressive, free, and all of your words flow with ease.

With your attention at your Third Eye chakra, visualize an indigo energy exiting Selene and entering the area of your third eye. You begin to unfold new ideas, new thoughts, and become awakened and in tune to your psychic abilities.

You have now reached your Crown Chakra. Begin to visualize a purple energy flowing from Selene to the crown of your head. As you connect to your higher self or higher power, you are feeling inspired and a newness of endless possibilities.

Take a deep breath in and slowly exhale. Visualize each chakra being filled with the light and energy from Selene, filling you with health, balance and vigor.

Thank The Great Goddess Selene for the cleansing and releasing of negativity, and for filling your soul with new beginnings and fresh perspectives.

Please ensure that you meditate for the whole 2 minutes, this is important.

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:

Incense Cones

Soaps

Smudge Sticks

Chime (smaller) Candles

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!
