Tiger’s Eye is a most ancient talisman, mysterious and powerful, revered and feared – an “all-seeing all-knowing eye,” thought to grant a wearer the ability to observe everything, even through closed doors. It was chosen by the Egyptians for the eyes in their deity statues to express divine vision, and was believed to provide the protection of the sun and earth combined, of Ra, the sun god and Geb, god of the growing land. Linked to the magical tiger, the king of beasts in Eastern mythology, Tiger’s Eye portrayed courage, integrity and right use of power. Roman soldiers carried it to deflect weapons and to be brave in battle. It has been highly regarded throughout history as a stone of prosperity and good fortune, protecting one’s resources and reflecting back malice or threats from others

One of the most effective of the eye formation stones, Tiger’s Eye is ever vigilant, bringing sharpness to one’s inner vision and better understanding of the cause and effect of each situation. It encourages one to use their powers wisely, and allows scattered information to be brought together to a cohesive whole. Tiger’s Eye supports necessary change in all aspects of one’s life, strengthening the will and clarity of intention in order to manifest at the highest level. It inspires creativity and utilizing one’s talents and abilities, and is superb for stimulating wealth and the good judgement needed to maintain it.

Keep Tiger’s Eye as a stone of luck and good fortune to attract a steady flow of money to the home. It is ideal for entrepreneurs and those setting out in business for the first time; also for those building up skills and a knowledge base for major career changes in the future.

Tiger’s Eye warns against complacency and emboldens one to “step out of the box” in order to grow and challenge one’s artistic and creative talents, physical abilities and trying something new. Use as a support stone for determination and to overcome fear during exams, competitions, public performances, selling one’s creations in the market place, or presenting ideas in important meetings.

Wear or carry Tiger’s Eye for increasing insight and perception in unfamiliar places or circumstances, and for protection from the negative intentions of others. Tiger’s Eye sharpens the senses, helping one pay attention to details and prepare for positive action. It reflects an overview of situations and assists when things are happening too fast. It is one of the best aids for resolving a crisis, and provides perfect support when one is afraid of making a wrong decision. Use for quick thinking, sizing up someone’s character, and for realizing the consequences of one’s own actions.

Draw on Tiger’s Eye to boost will power, emotional stability and energy levels when working through lifestyle changes and health improvement routines. It reduces cravings for the wrong kind of foods and helps decrease the need for binges, excessive cigarettes, prescription drugs or alcohol. It also reduces anxiety caused by feelings of isolation or inadequacy, and helps overcome discouragement to persevere through the long haul.

Tiger’s Eye is a stone of practicality and balance, remarkable for soothing tensions in families and relationships where differences of opinion or expression are causing discord. It promotes harmony between people with diverse viewpoints, religious beliefs or approaches to life to see both sides of an issue and find common ground. It is a marvellous talisman for professional mediators, as well as anyone going through difficult negotiations.

Tiger’s Eye is a blood fortifier, increasing vitality and strength, and restoring balance to the body on all levels. It is thought to boost the endocrine system, bringing one’s hormones and biochemistry back to level, and placed on the reproductive organs, may stimulate fertility and resolve issues arising from past experiences. Tiger’s Eye placed on either side of the head energetically rebalances the brain’s hemispheres, and as this stone holds energy of the sun, may relieve seasonal affective disorder and depression. It is effective for alleviating nightmares, and is reputed to relieve asthma attacks and angina, and help lower blood pressure.

Tiger’s Eye is traditionally used to heal disorders of the eyes and throat, and to improve night vision. It eases issues of the stomach and gall bladder, and dissolves constrictions. It may also be used to strengthen alignment of the spine and stimulate the repair of broken bones.

Tiger’s Eye is a remarkable ally for the mind, balancing emotional extremes and allowing scattered thoughts, feelings and information to come together in a way that makes sense. It brings focus and stability, enabling one to make decisions from a place of reason rather than emotion. Tiger’s Eye is ideal for those who are spaced out and uncommitted to find purpose; for those who find it difficult to remain optimistic, it stimulates hope and confidence for the future.

Tiger’s Eye is highly beneficial for resolving dilemmas and internal battles, especially those caused by jealousy, wilfulness and pride. It teaches integrity and right use of power, bringing an awareness of one’s needs, as opposed to mere “wants,” as well as understanding the needs of others. It is excellent for healing issues of self-criticism and worth, and unblocks creativity so one may recognize one’s talents and abilities, as well as one’s faults that need to be overcome. It is highly supportive for an addictive personality, increasing personal will to affect positive change, and anchors that change into the physical body.

Tiger’s Eye grounds the energy of the Solar Ray into the Earth, stimulating the First through the Third Chakras. It supports physical vitality, practicality, and maintaining balance between extremes.

The root is located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When spiritual energies are out of balance, one may feel flighty, disconnected from reality or distant. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body regains its strength and stamina, and the spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.

The sacral chakra located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis, controls the flow of energy and is the centre of gravity of the body. It is the centre of the Life Force of the body, and controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other “non-linear” communication comes from this chakra. When it is out of balance symptoms manifest themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex, and frustration. When the Sacral Chakra is in balance one has grace, feels pleasure in life, and experiences the flexibility to “go with the flow” and do so in good spirit.

The solar plexus chakra   is the energy distribution centre and the chakra of relationships. This chakra is located between the ribcage and navel, and controls the immune and digestive systems. When balanced physically, we have strength to fight infections, are free of allergic reactions, and are able to use the nutrients we ingest. When the Solar Plexus is out of balance spiritually, we feel fear – of the disappointment or displeasure of others, or to subordinating our life and pleasures to the will of others. Spiritually, when the solar plexus is in balance we are free to interpret the world through our own thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others.

Tiger’s Eye resonates with the frequencies of the Earth and provides a warm, stable energy for prayers and meditation, and stimulating contact with the vibrational realm of Christ consciousness. It engenders peacefulness and beauty, and connects with the spiritual power of the sun as nourishment for the soul. Tiger’s Eye enables the ability to remember dreams and to use dreamtime for spiritual advancement, sparking imagination, intuition, and opening up psychic talents in earthy people through Third Eye activity. It is remarkable for balancing yin and yang energies, stimulating the rise of the kundalini energy, and bringing a joyful enthusiasm for flowing with “the river of humanity” toward the “One.”

The Gold rays of Tiger’s Eye bring success, enthusiasm, happiness, and power. It is traditionally the colour of kings, riches, and the sun. Gold touches a deep part of our minds, conjuring up images of mystical places and adventure. Light Gold crystals provide us with the simple pleasures of life – cheerfulness and contentment. Dark Gold crystals have a deeper, more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment, providing us with a mature enthusiasm and ability to share a lifelong commitment of care and love.

The Brown rays within Tiger’s Eye brings connection with the natural world. It is the colour influence of home, hearth, and nature. It helps us relax, reconnect, and regain our composure. It is a grounding stone, promoting security and stability.

Meditating with Tiger’s Eye initiates a wonderful, high-vibrational state that is well-grounded, peaceful, and highly conducive for encounters with others through remote viewing, out-of-body travel or mind travel. It allows one to move into a state of bliss, experiencing a single point of awareness within an atmosphere of warm compassion and unconditional love. Upon return, it inspires one to take actions led by that consciousness to bring its energy more fully into the physical world.

The Divinatory meaning of Tiger’s Eye: Money-making ventures and new prospects will succeed even better than anticipated if you persist and keep focused when you hit an obstacle.

The Marra Mamba Tiger Eye mined from the Mt. Brockman mine in Australia is a “gazing” stone, used by female shamans to provide powers of the “far-seeing eye,” beneficial in the open country where “seeing” could have an effect on one’s well-being as well as the entire community. This locality stone can also be used to “mirror” oneself in order to understand one’s behaviour, thoughts, and reasoning, or to “read” the energies of others.

Gold Tiger’s Eye is wonderful for connecting with Archangels Jophiel and Sabrael.

Tiger’s Eye may have been known in ancient history as Wolf stone, and possibly as oculus belus, dedicated to the Mesopotamian god Belus. Deemed to be all-seeing, it was regarded as a stone of protection and good luck, used to heal eye diseases and help one see in the dark. In Chinese medicine, it restored yin and yang energies.

Tiger’s Eye was linked with the magical tiger, the king of beasts, in Eastern mythology, and Roman soldiers wore it in battle for bravery and to deflect weapons. To the ancient Egyptians, it offered the protection of the sun and earth combined, of Ra, the sun god, and Geb, god of the growing land. They also placed the glittering stone in the eyes of their god image statues to express divine vision.

A popular good luck stone, Tiger’s Eye/Cat’s Eye was used to ward off the evil eye, and to reflect back any malice or threats without absorbing any negative energy. It was used a great deal in voodoo rituals. Holding a Tiger’s Eye was also used to discern if someone else was reliable or not. Traditionally it was believed by the end of the day, any deception would be revealed.

Tiger’s Eye utilizes fire energy the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature. It is the energy of heat, action, emotion and passion – of ideas, of concepts, and sex. It is traditionally associated with the south area of a home or room, and with the fame and reputation area of your dwelling. Use its energy to give your life the boost it needs to enhance your standing in the community and within your family.

Tiger’s Eye has long been used as an amulet against the evil eye, curses and bad luck, and as a talisman for bringing wealth and good fortune.

Tiger’s Eye is a seeker transformer crystal. Seekers contain a crystal energy structure that aligns the natural energy of the crystal to the natural power of the human mind in finding the way to new horizons and new capabilities. They’re pointers, directors, and compasses; the fresh start crystals. These are talismans of the scientist, the adventurer, the hunter, wanderer, and explorer. They’re also crystals of the student and the researcher.

Transformer crystals enhance efforts to change our situations, prospects, health, outlook or relationships. By transforming ourselves we transform our lives. We learn to dance, speak a new language, grow stronger, or become a better spouse or child. Seeker crystals with the earth power of the Transformer are excellent talismans to aid our efforts to grow, develop new capabilities and change our lives.

Tiger’s Eye is a great zodiac stone for those born under the sign Gemini between May 21 and June 20, when the Earth is approaching summer. The constellation Gemini is known as the Sign of the Inventor and is seen as twins side by side in the sky. It is closely associated with the planet Mercury. Those born under this sign can see both sides of an issue. They’re flexible and can go with the flow, and can be lively and talkative, or restless and nervous depending on their setting. Those born when the Sun is in Gemini are quick thinkers, quick-witted, and quick on their feet.

Wishing Stones

8f4dac5876d8022f92b08b4a2e2945fe.jpg

I love wishing stones if you take your time with them they can be a lot of fun especially  if you just want to throw caution to the wind and wish big. I often find them while walking around outside I then save them for when I feel that I need a little luck.

Over the years, I have found quite a few of them I call them my rainy day wishes.

I’ve had a few rainy days where I turned to my wishing stones, but before I use the wishes I’d been saving I wanted to make sure I used them to their fullest potential. After some thought, I decided on these three methods, and now I want to share these with you.

The common lore on wishing stones is that they can be any size or shape and colour except for a solid white band encircling the entire stone. This band can be of any thickness, but there should only be one and it should be unbroken. That unique white ring makes these stones somewhat rare, but unmistakable. I have always relied on these ones because I have had success with them, so I’m sticking with it.

As soon as I learned about wishing stones, I wanted to collect as many as I could. I have had a lot of practice finding them and that white band became easy to spot and I could find them quickly.

Location is not a problem wishing stones can be found anywhere. If you just want to give the stones a try, you could go searching and probably find one without too much effort.  Or, if you wanted to make a day of it, head somewhere a little off the beaten track and look there.

Half the fun is finding them I try to go to places that feel special to me. It’s not entirely necessary, but it adds to the experience and makes my stones seem a little more precious. This can be a solitary activity or you can go with a friend.

So, once you’ve collected your stones, how do you use them?

The Shared Wish

The shared wish is meant to “double” the power of the wish by using two people’s intentions rather than one. Intention, as always, is so important when performing any kind of magic even when using simple wishing stones. Small to medium stones work best.

Before beginning, go over the instructions with your partner so both of you are on the same page during the process. It’s important that both people are wishing for the same thing in the same way.

Hold hands with your partner and place the wishing stone between your palms, then firmly clasp hands. With your eyes closed and hands together, both of you need to focus deeply on the wish, thinking in present tense terms as though your shared wish is already happening. For example, “our trip is safe” or “we are healthy.” If needed, say the wish aloud.

Now, visualize the wish occurring in your mind. Imagine what it looks like to have your wish happen, imagine what it feels like. Try and feel only the stone in your hand and focus only on that and imagine the wish flowing from your palm into the stone and swirling around inside it like smoke.

Open your eyes. If one of you is still concentrating, don’t interrupt them. Once their eyes open, you can release hands. Your wishing stone is now charged with your intentions! Times two!

Because this is a shared wish, neither of you needs to carry the wishing stone around, the stone should be placed on a high point, preferably outside like a window ledge where it can be exposed to the elements and release the wish as it likes. Once your wish has been granted, you should thank the stone and then return it back to a natural environment.

The Moon Wish

This spell is designed for larger wishing stones that can’t be carried around with you.

On the first day of the moon, prior to making your wish, dig a hole big enough for your wishing stone on the east side of your home. Make sure it’s deep enough for the stone to be completely covered with no chance of exposure. At midnight on the first official day of the moon, close your wishing stone in your hands and make your wish. Meditate on your wish for as long as you feel necessary and at least long enough to warm the stone in your hands . This process may take a while depending on the size of your stone, but that’s beneficial to you because the more time you spend focusing on your wish’s intentions, the better.

Once the stone is warm, go outside and bury it in the hole you dug earlier. Pack the earth tightly so the stone will be undisturbed, and mark the spot so you can find it easily.

On the third day after the moon unearth the stone and bring it inside. Make a warm salt water bath and wash the stone so it is as clean as when you found it then take the stone back to nature and thank it for its work. If possible, take the stone east, toward the sunrise and leave it in a place where the sunlight touches it.

Quick Wish

This is supposed to be fast and fun for less specific wishes as it requires a lot less concentration. This is for “good-intention” wishes, like wishing for health and happiness, or something you are waiting to happen.

Hold you’re wishing stone tightly in your left hand, warming it slightly. Then close your eyes, and as you say your wish aloud, turn the stone over in your hand three times to charge it with your wish. When finished, hold the stone with your right hand and throw it eastward as far as you can. Because of the nature of these wishes, you don’t need to keep the stone with you. Instead, when you throw the stone, imagine yourself throwing your good intentions into the universe and hoping they come true.

You can also buy wishing stones online if you’re not having any luck finding them where you live, wishing stones are meant to be used once and then discarded so someone else can find it. Back to the single white band, one band, one wish. So, don’t try to reuse the stones if you want more wishes, just find more wishing stones!

After all the work finding the stone, some may not be so ready to part with it once the wish has been granted. This is up to you, but I think you’ll have a better chance of having your wish come true if you throw the stone.

Unlike your quartz and amethyst and the loyal stones you may carry with you or place on your altar, wishing stones don’t belong to you. Think of them as little spirits who come into your life temporarily to help, who you then release so they can help someone else.

My favourite crystals to help heal yourself.

crystals-hand

Crystals have been used throughout all of history as a source of healing power. Ancient cultures all over the world used healing crystals and stones to align, clear and transform their energy, spirit and physical health, here are a few of my favourites.

Clear Quartz is very versatile it’s also known as the master healer and can provide assistance to those in need of any type of healing it is known for pain relief when placed on a painful area.  This crystal strengthens and increases the aura and provides regenerative energies to areas of the body in need of healing.

Smokey Quartz has a strong and deliberate action of eliminating negative energies and grounding higher vibrations into the 3-D physical reality.  For those undergoing radiation for cancer this crystal can help to counteract some of the effects of this therapy due to its own exposure to the Earth’s natural radiation.  It is said to improve healing and relieve some pain and is great in body layouts and grids for this purpose.

There are some stones that can help with cancer, Smokey Quartz and Selenite. While Selenite is known to be a highly spiritual crystal, it is also known for reversing some of the damage done by free radicals in the body.

Selenite has one of the purest vibrations of the mineral kingdom and can assist in assimilating these energies.  When Selenite is placed on an affected area of the body will help to infuse the area with fine light energy, which can be an aid to the healing process bringing insight and access to the higher self a great aid for meditation and spiritual development. Selenite can infuse the human energy field with angelic vibrations preventing negative energies from infiltrating one’s aura.

Specific stones for the lungs include Amber and Rose Quartz.  Amber brings the memory of perfection back to the cells of the lungs, allowing for a greater chance of healing.

Specific crystals for the prostate include Chrysoprase and Obsidian.  Chrysoprase is a strong detoxifier and it pulls in healing universal energies into the Sacral and Heart Chakras and the organs of the lower body.  Obsidian works with the lower chakras to cleanse the area of any negative energies bringing healing energy to the area.

There are a few crystals that can help endocrine function, some of which are Citrine, Golden Topaz, and Yellow Jasper.

Citrine carries the regenerative energies of the Sun, bringing warm healing vibes into one’s personal energy field, it is helpful for those suffering depleted endocrine function and those who are susceptible to environmental influences.  It has powerful healing vibrations for the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, and the relative organs including the pancreas, the thyroid, the thymus, the spleen, the kidneys and the bladder.

Also known as Imperial Topaz, Golden Topaz is spiritually and physically a revitalizing crystal and can act as a catalyst for great healing on multiple levels.  Crystal healers are familiar with Golden Topaz’s regenerative effects on the endocrine glands, the liver and the gallbladder, which make this a great crystal for body layouts.  Golden Topaz also enables one to release any negative patterns that may contribute to the manifestation of disease.

Yellow Jasper is a proficient detoxifying stone that energizes the entire endocrine system.  By focusing its energies on the Solar Plexus Chakra, it can promote the healthy flow of positive vibrations throughout the associated organs including the liver, stomach, and endocrine glands.

Lastly, Rose Quartz known as the stone of love imparts a vibration of empathy and compassion directly into the Heart and Higher Heart Chakras, which brings inner peace and a greater capacity for universal love.  It can be quite helpful to those who find themselves depressed or sad.  The calming and soothing vibes can be felt radiating into the body and its aura.  Rose Quartz makes a great aid for chronic or traumatic depressions or anxieties, and is most helpful when held or carried.

Introduction to Witchcraft

Crystal to bring light and love into your life.

Angelite is a form of anhydrite, which is a crystal made of calcium sulfate. It is recognizable by its beautiful, milky blue colour, and one of the best stones for improving spirituality and spiritual awareness.

Anhydrite, including angelite, is an inherently unstable stone. When anhydrite is exposed to water, it transforms into gypsum (although it can be transformed back by heating it to 200 degrees Celsius).

Alternate Names for Angelite: Blue Anhydrite
Anhydrite is formed in places where gypsum stones that had previously been in contact with water, which then evaporates, leaving anhydrite crystals behind.

While this can occur all over the world, as gypsum is a very common mineral, notable deposits are in the Persian Gulf, and on the coast of Chile.

Since angelite is a very specific colour and formation of anhydrite crystals, although anhydrite is found all over the world, angelite is still quite a rare stone.

It is found only when the right concentration of minerals are found in the anhydrite deposits to turn it into the beautiful and distinctive blue colour that characterizes angelite.

Angelite is one of the strongest stones that you can use for developing spiritual and religious strength, fostering psychic power, and establishing connections to higher powers.

If this interests you, then the work involved in acquiring and caring for an angelite stone will be well worth the effort.

Angelite’s name is an indication of its primary power: this is, in simplest terms, a stone for contacting angels.

Now, there are a lot of facets to that description, and it would be simplistic for me to leave the description of angelite at that, especially since the term “angel” is loaded with a lot of cultural connotations that may or may not reflect exactly what angelite’s powers do.

In modern western culture, the word “angel” has a connotation of gentle, usually feminine beings in a primarily Christian-influenced understanding of the world.

While that understanding of angels is certainly not wrong or worthless, it is limited.

In the Bible, and in early Christian writings, angels were seen as far more powerful, less peaceful beings. The word “angel” comes from the ancient Greek word meaning “messenger.”

Ancient cultures conceptualize angels as the “middle ground” between humans and gods, more powerful and divine than humans but lesser than God (or the full gods of Ancient Greek and Roman mythology).

In the Middle Ages, angels were frequently seen as avenging spirits, especially the sword-wielding seraphim.

It is only since the nineteenth century that angels became characterized as unusually gentle or benevolent, or that the idea of deceased people becoming angels entered western thought in a significant way.

No matter what idea of angels you find most meaningful, you can guarantee that there is power to it.

It is perfectly easy to imagine all these different understandings of angels as facets of a full or even incomprehensible reality, and whatever is most meaningful to you, personally, is what you should pursue.

The bottom line is that angelite will help you get in contact with these divine powers who – according to virtually every conceptualization, or even by definition – mediate between the human world and the world of God or the gods.

By coming to understand these beings, and becoming able to communicate with them, you can develop your spiritual senses, and become a much more enlightened, psychically attuned person for your entire life on Earth.

I understand that this is not something that interests everyone, as angelite’s powers will not directly help you in achieving many of the goals that we seek to achieve on Earth.

If this is the case, feel free to pass this stone by.en as far more powerful, less peaceful beings. The word “angel” comes from the ancient Greek word meaning “messenger.”

Ask your angels to help you on your journey. 

Whichever stage of your spiritual path you have reached, the angels can show you further guidance about your life, they can help and guide you each step of the way, if you let them. The more you open up to the guidance and love of the angels, the more your lives will improve.

You can work with your angels and guardian angels and learn how to communicate with them, and receive messages about any questions you have about your life. Your life can become easier by working with the angels, all you have to do is ask, and be open to their help.
Below are the stages of development, you might like to take a look to see which one best applies to you.

Exploring – You have become interested in some spiritual areas, and are exploring further, via books, courses, etc.
Crossroads – You have reached a point where you feel there is more to life than mere materialism, and are no longer satisfied with your old life. You feel there is a ‘calling’ to do something else or more with your life. It’s probably time to move on even though you may not know what that is yet.

New Beginnings – You have begun developing a new path you have trained, and may have begun a new career, or are offering healing, readings or treatments.

Bigger Mission – You have been on your new path for a long time, and see the bigger picture of why you are here and your purpose, and are busy following it with a happy heart.

Unawakened – Those that are going about their normal life, unaware of anything spiritual, maybe they don’t believe or are just not interested.

Angels are the beings of light who respond to our calls for guidance, assistance, protection, and comfort. The angels are here to help us, especially when our intent is to bring joy and healing to ourselves and others.  You can ask for angels to surround your loved ones, your home, and your business. Angels receive great joy at helping us, and they ask only that we occasionally remember to say, “Thank you” in return for their help.

Archangels these are the angels who supervise the guardian angels and angels upon the earth. You can call upon an archangel whenever you need powerful and immediate assistance. Angels and archangels cannot intervene in our lives unless we specifically ask for their help. The only exception to this is a life endangering situation, where we could die before our time. Otherwise, it’s up to us to remember to constantly invite angels and archangels into our lives.

If you are unsure where to start get yourself a pack of angel cards, pick a pack you are drawn too, take some time getting to know them and when you ready to go ground yourself, then ask your angels to help and guide you with any questions you may have then pick your cards, study the messages on the cards and let your intuition guide you.

For information on angels and angel cards visit my training & workshop page.I have a workshop in March why not come and join us.

 

 

Full Moon Scrying

th

Many of us can feel a connection to the moon and some of us notice an increase in our intuition, we may also feel more energetic and a bit more sensitive to our environment and what’s going on around us.

This is because our bodies and minds are connected to the lunar cycles and during this time we have heighten senses and sleeping can often be a major factor with many of us not sleeping properly for 3 or 4 days.

We have a super moon and total lunar eclipse at the end of the month this is a good time to try some sort of divination and one of the more suitable and perhaps obvious methods during this time is moon scrying.

We need a reflective surface as a tool for scrying, the Egyptians and the Romans did this during their religious rituals. Even Nostradamus made notes about staring into a bowl of water by candlelight to gain inspiration.

This type of divination is one of the simplest to do, you could do it outside by sitting somewhere that you can see the moon reflecting on the water where you are using the moon to illuminate the water for you.

You can do this the day before or on the day of the full moon or the day after all or any of them is acceptable.

To do this inside or in your garden you will need a table, a dark bowl and jug of water to fill the bowl, a note pad or journal if you keep one, peace and quiet or soft meditate music.

Cast your circle or use protective white light, if you work with guides and helpers call them close.

Prepare yourself to start by closing your eyes and focusing your mind on the energy around you listen to the sounds around you tilt your head back and face the moon and bring that energy towards you.

Take some time to gather that energy and It’s a pull, it’s a sensation that you can feel, take your time to feel it and recognise your connection to it, and to the Divine.

When you are ready to begin scrying, open your eyes, you may start to feel an unusual sense of clarity and alertness now pour the water into the bowl from the jug, visualise the energy of the moon charging that water.

Now position yourself so that you can see the moon’s light reflected directly into the water. Stare into the water; you are looking for patterns, symbols or pictures. You may see images moving, or perhaps even words forming.

You may even have thoughts pop into your head that may not seem to mean anything right now, this is where you can use your journal write it down.

Spend as much time as you feel gazing into the water for some it may be just a few minutes, or even an hour. Stop when you begin to feel restless, or if you’re becoming distracted.

When you are finished make sure you have written down everything you saw, thought and felt during your session.

If some of it doesn’t make sense, don’t worry give it for a few days to let your unconscious mind process it. Chances are it will make sense eventually.

It’s also possible that you could receive a message that’s meant for someone else if something doesn’t seem to apply to you, think about your family or circle of friends, and who it might be meant for.

Afterwards, you can leave your water out overnight to charge it, or you can pour it away. Finally ground yourself by making tea or having something to eat.

Clearing Your Space

d8ac3ce280e544c528764dd598b5696d

Did you know that Bells, Chimes, Singing Bowls, are all wonderful tools for clearing living spaces, or any space that you spend any amount of time in.

It’s better to start at the back of your house and ring a bell or play your bowl as you move through your entire space, make sure to include any corners, move clockwise through each room starting and ending at the door.

The vibrations help to break up stagnant energy and lift the general feel of the space. You will be dispersing the negative energy and welcoming in happiness, health and all positive energy.

Clearing with bells and chimes are a personal preference, they leave a crystal clear energy field in a room. The quality of this energy will depend on the size of the bell and clarity of sound the kind of metal used and the energy and culture of the bell maker. The best are always the ones that feel comfortable to you and that you love the sound of.

Hand held chime bars and chime balls come in various sizes and have different pitches. The sound can be made light or very penetrating, depending on how you strike or shake them.

As well as filling the room with sound they can be held in such a way as to direct the sound at a particular area. The tone will sound much clearer and last much longer after a space clearing is complete.

If you need some proof of the effectiveness of space clearing, ring the bell before you start the clearing and again after you are complete. On each occasion, count for the duration of the time it rings it will clearly show that the sound lasts longer after the space clearing.  Bells are also very good at clearing ones aura.

Hold the bell lightly with relaxed hand, ring vigorously, this creates a continual ringing swing your arm to help get the energy flowing.
Then ring gently, hold the bell at the base of the handle and ring it gently with the left hand move the sound out into the room.

Striking the bell gives you more control over the sound it is best to use a wooden stick. You can also use your bell like a singing bowl, just tap the bell and run the wooden stick around the rim.

Singing Bowls – Again begin at the back of your house or space hold the bowl in your hand, while tapping then running the wooden stick clockwise around the rim of the bowl don’t forget to do this in each corner, going counter clockwise beginning and ending at the door.  Carry on and do this in each room until you reach the front door.

Another option is to place the bowl on a soft surface in the centre of each room and gently strike the wooden stick on the rim and drag around the rim if the bowl, again clockwise. Do this 4 times in each room allowing the vibrations to reach every corner of the room.

Once you reach the front door, open the door, allowing the negative energy to leave and welcoming positive energy in. The air will feel light and the vibration of the space will be high, soothing, energizing and balanced.

How to clear and deal with negative energy.

f781e3afe72ef64457a2a97c50b165ce

It’s important to remember for those of us that are sensitive or feel a lot of empathy for others to take time to clear your aura, especially if your developing your psychic abilities or working as a psychic, everyone of us has an aura it’s an energy field that surrounds us made up of many layers, it can extend up to 3 ft around us depending on your vibrational frequency.  Sometimes it can become out of balance or we pick up negative energy from the environment around us or people that we read for or come in contact with.

Cleansing your aura is a form of personal healing and spiritual and emotional well being, our aura continuously processes positive and negative information throughout the day about our experiences, by doing meditation, exercise, having a good diet, drinking only moderate alcohol and not smoking are the best ways to look after yourself, being a psychic or reader needs to be a lifestyle choice if you don’t look after yourself you can burn out, become ill or depressed.

I know that sometimes I can go out happy and in a good mood and by the time I get back I can feel heavy headed or negative emotions like anger or sadness sometime I can pick these up from the gym,  this type of environment it does attract people for many different reasons and some of the people there are depressed or have issues they are trying to work through and by going to the gym helps it them feel better which is great, but if you’re an empath like me you can end taking on that energy.  It can also happen in shopping centres, pubs, supermarkets anywhere that a lot of people tend to congregate going about their daily life.

One thing I have noticed over the years and something you should consider when picking a psychic or a reader is that an inexperienced reader or someone just starting out  and often it’s the ones that tend to offer free or cheap readings, (and of course many people will jump at the chance of a freebie!) Just be aware that this person may have taken on a lot of negative energy and not cleared themselves, if you think about it happy people don’t tend to have readings they only come to us when they have a problem and you can end up taking on all that negativity if you are really sensitive.

I have often had to clear after just receiving a message or email from someone let alone a reading, it can be in any form of contact I can pick up on the energy of the person right away, and if they are a sensitive or psychic I know when they don’t clear regularly and I have to then clear myself. Having had a un pleasant experience myself recently after being in contact with a psychic reader (I don’t feel that I should go into details as it may scare some of you) I’m told by my guides that this person wasn’t aware of this negative energy and that it had attach itself to them, although I’m guessing they probably would have eventually wondered why they were feeling off colour. So if you’re of a sensitive nature and you pick a reader because they seem cheap or they offer freebies and you could end feeling worse than you did before the reading.

Firstly trust your instincts and do your home work, check out the reader see how long they have been doing it and don’t fall for the old crap, I have been doing it for years! if they have been doing it for years they don’t offer free readings to everyone, go by recommendation and check out their website they should have a photograph of themselves on their clearly stating who they are, what training they have had  with lots of positive feedback.

Readers do have to start somewhere, if they are practicing or in training they should be honest and open about it. Ask yourself do you feel a connection to this person and do you feel they would give you good advice or are you just after a freebie.

Professional readers work with people day in and day out they know they have to clear and look after themselves in order to connect and give a positive experience.

If you are unfortunate to come into contact with or know that you are going to see someone that’s negative or always complaining then ask for extra protection from your guides, put the white light around you and ground yourself try to limit your time with them and only see them when you feel strong enough to cope with it, maybe ask yourself what value do they have in your life do they just want someone to unload on so they feel better and you end feeling bad. Family is different you may have to see them often or even live with them, then sage your house regularly and place crystals around the room or areas that they sleep or sit. Open the windows let in the fresh air let it blow through to clear the energy.

Here are some ideas you can try if you want to clear negative energy from your home or workplace.

1. Sea salt is commonly used in Feng Shui to get rid of negative energy and to allow a balanced chi to flow inside the home. The sea salt is either used alone or mixed with water and placed in certain areas of the home. Mix 5 – 6 tablespoons of sea salt in a bucket of water and mop the floors with the mixture. Or you can place a small bowl filled with sea salt in each corner of the house which faces the northeast and southwest directions. The bowls of salt should be left in an open space and not placed in a cupboard. It should be replaced every 2 months.

2. Clean rugs, curtains, walls, windows etc.  Every time you clean your home you are removing negative energy. Cleaning your home or workspace will make it lighter and more positive. This is a result of organizing, of ridding yourself of things you no longer need and removing toxic products from your environment. Just opening windows brings in fresh, positive energy.

3. Remove clutter. Things like old magazines and dirty clothes can trap a lot of negative energy in your house. Remove old items you no longer need. Keep coffee tables picked up and clean. Put your laundry in a laundry basket. Wash your dirty dishes and put them away. Negative energy needs objects to hang on to so it can remain around.

4. Loud noises. This is the reason the Chinese love fireworks. Loud noises break up energy patterns and allow them to disperse. Mother Nature does the same thing with the noise of thunder storms.

5. Open windows and let fresh air in and negative energy out.

6. A meditation once or twice a day in your living space will broadcast out a powerful positive vibration, making positive energy more powerful than negative energy. A proper meditation will saturate a space with uplifting energy for several hours.

7. Other space clearing techniques include burning candles, dowsing; smudging with herbs (white sage) or incense; clearing with bells, cymbals and singing bowls; and clearing with chanting. Burn lavender, mint or eucalyptus incense inside every room of the home. These scents will infuse positive energy into the home and will push out anything negative.

8. Rearrange the furniture, again negative energy needs something to “cling to.” Arrange your space with as much wide open space as possible, allowing any negative energy to disperse. But also the act of rearranging will cause this harmful energy to dissipate.

9.  Add living plants. Plants add colour, life, oxygen and positive energy to your home.

10. If all else fails then call in an expert, they will do the clearing for you and pick up on anything else that may be going on, like a un happy resident spirit.

Clear quartz, the witches favourite.

19959040_10155394674531772_3304140744206546932_n

Witches, if you are only going to have one crystal, then this is a must have. Quartz is one of the most versatile of crystals, and it is able to do just about everything you need. It boosts the powers of other crystals, focuses and directs energy, especially quartz points, and can be used for protection balancing, meditation, and dispelling negative energy.

All witches have a wand, although traditionally a wand is associated with wood rather than crystal, a crystal can be equally effective in directing the energy of the caster. Long pieces of quartz can be used to define the circle or simply to direct will when working.

We have to cleanse our crystals and there are many ways to charge them, by using moon water, moon light, even burying in the earth, one of the simplest ways is to leave crystals to charge on a bed or inside a geode of quartz, I do this often to the ones that I wear. Quartz is a charging crystal that rejuvenates your other crystals and leaves them cleansed and charged.

Quartz has protective properties and can be worn close to the body either in the form of jewellery or in a pocket or bra to protect the wearer. It can also be placed around the home for protection to your property.

Quartz can be used in a ritual, it can be worn as jewellery, sewn into ritual robes or even attached to magical tools, it helps channel the energy and is used for protection, to keep negativity out and enhance the safety of the circle and the participants.

For psychic dreams, if you place this crystal beneath your pillow, the quartz can assist you to have dreams of a prophetic nature.

During healing, quartz can be moved over the body this helps to heal any weak patches in the aura and restores energy.  When using quartz to heal remember to cleanse your stones after using as they will pick up any residue of negativity clinging to the aura.

Infused your crystal in water, ideally its best left overnight in the full moon. The water can then be used for cleansing your magic tools, and for home or work clearings and blessings.

Lastly, probably the most widely known use of clear quartz is the crystal ball. A crystal ball is used for divination, some seers see a physical image in the crystal and others use the surface to rest and clear their mind and allow them to either see images in their mind’s eye or to enable knowledge to come forward, this can take a lot of patience and practice as my development circle tribe will tell you.
