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.

Spirit Portals and Energy Vortexes

10533550_747678635268466_1480332357403546390_n

Have you ever noticed when you’ve walked into an area of unusual temperature change or there’s a blurring perhaps a sense of enhanced energy? Well you may have stumbled across an energy vortex, which houses a spirit or inter-dimensional portal.

In technical terms a spirit portal is a region of space that has a 4 dimensional vibratory frequency, where this region of 3 dimensional physical plane and the 4 dimensional etheric plane merge into each other through the aid of an energy vortex.

In simple terms a spirit portal is a doorway in the physical world that allows free access to and from the spirit world. The existence of a portal can rely on a vortex of energy to sustain it.

This is an area of mass energy in a high concentration, usually originating from magnetic, spiritual or sometimes unknown sources that create a powerful spiral of energy which can be positive or negative in nature.

Vortexes tend to exist where there are strong concentrations of gravitational anomalies this in turn creates an area that can bend light and cause a considerable distortion in the human energy field. They have also been shown to be associated with ley lines and have been found to be considerably stronger at node points where several ley lines cross.

Vortexes and portals can be categorized according to direction and nature of energy flow, two examples are. Up flow Vortexes, Positive Portals: This is where the energy is flowing upward out of the earth, these vortexes are generally revitalising and feel positive. The energy here feels more electric than magnetic and is said to boost spiritual skills, to stretch and expand the consciousness.

Inflow Vortexes, Negative Portals: This is where the energy is flowing inward, toward the earth. The energy here feels heavier and more negative if unprepared for its downward impact.

Fear is often experienced at these sites if you are not ready the in-suing introspection. These vortexes are best for healing and self realization. These portals are more famous but less common.

If you encounter a negative portal you will feel negative and emotions of anger, hate, fear, jealousy and depression some people become ill.

Highly sensitive people may have nightmares and feelings of oppression as the negative entities make use of the portal.

Mirrors and water are also popular ways of creating a portal to the other side we have done this a few times in our advanced development circle. They are effective as long as the user knows how to use them properly, control them and ultimately close them down properly afterwards, otherwise you leave yourself open to unwanted guests using the portal.

Many people inadvertently open portals and don’t even know they’ve done anything until the knock on effects become apparent It is not as easy to close a portal as it is to open one.

There are both positive and negative portals, but why do our spirit guides and other ascended beings allow the negative portals to exist? The answer lies in two words ‘Free Will’. All humans possess free will, the free will to make choices and to design our own destiny.

Both positive and negative portals can be created by free will, they both exist because they have been called into existence. If our spirit guides stopped the opening of negative portals this would mean that we as humans are not the true masters of our destinies and we have no free will. One type of energy would then have ultimate hold so with light we must have dark to keep the balance between our dimension and that of other dimensions.

Portals and vortexes exist more than we are aware of. We rarely see them with the naked eye but we can measure their effects with scientific and divination tools such as digital thermometers and pendulums. We can also feel or sense their effects by the energy vibrations, direction of flow and the subsequent entities that use them, I often see shadow people passing through I don’t pay too much attention as long as they leave me be, I will leave them be.

Portals are not always required for other dimensions to interact with ours but they serve as a more convenient way of bridging the inter-dimensional divide and enabling interaction and experience between the different planes of existence.

Information taken from the internet and supernatural magazine I have also added my own thoughts.

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.

Connecting with spirit

how-to-call-upon-your-spirit-guide-300x168

One of the goals of a lot of people on a spiritual path is to learn the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and to be able to communicate with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and I know that it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.

Like anything we do, the more you work at it the stronger and better you will become and the more it will grow. There are a few stages we go through when learning to make spiritual contact.

Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them.  Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.

Stage Two – Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits trying to interact with you.

During this stage…

You might hear the same song over and over again
You might notice things in your environment move
You might see shadows and orbs
You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
You may experience strange smells
You might develop strange tastes
You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.

Stage Three – Awakening – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself.

You will also ….

Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled.
You might see shadows and shapes around you.
You might hear words or phrases.
You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
You might have moments were you feel them.
You will have dreams of your companions and have lucid experiences with them.
You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them.
Your senses will begin to stabilize
You will have routines with your companions and know how they work and have moments where you see, hear and sense them very clearly.
May now you should try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself.

Stage Three – Strong Sensations –Your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and you are in a higher state of arousal.

You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing.
You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed.
You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images.
You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them.
You are able to feel and sense their energy.
You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities, you are able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk, feel them and touch them.

Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you are working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing.  At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them.

You know who is who and can tell whose energy belongs to which companion.
You can tell when you are being touched or stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
You can smell them you will know the aromas that your companions have.
You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences.
You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
you can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
You can tell the difference between them.
You can have physical stimulations from them and receive messages and inspirations from them.

Remember to be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a lot lying dormant within us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.

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.

Cutting The Cords

cords-237x300

We are all linked on an energetic as well as a spiritual level the people we connect with can often influence what we think to how we feel.

Our connections with those around us can make us feel inspired and uplifted although occasionally we find ourselves having to deal with people or relationships where we feel drained.

You might have heard of the spiritual technique of cord cutting, this is where you visualise the other person, seeing the energetic cords that run between you and them then seeing them being cut then you must surround the ends with a healing white light and then send them on their way

It can be a very powerful yet doesn’t have to mean the end of the relationship that exists between you.  It’s more about reclaiming your own power and restoring the energy balance between you.

The modern day approach means that we need to use spiritual practices like cord cutting with other things that can heal or transform whatever situation we find ourselves in. Otherwise, we can visualise cords being cut until the sun goes down and smudge ourselves every day and still find ourselves feeling as we were before.

Here’s some of what you can do.

Try and avoid the urge to go back, if we’re talking about exes, then no checking out face book to see what they are up to and no midnight sexting or answering booty calls.  It can be harder to gently ease away from a relationship that’s passed its sell by date, but sometimes that’s what you need to do.

Try to fill the gap, everything that we do, including our thoughts, actions and habits can be hard to break. Get rid of your bad habits and replace them with ones that inspire you and lift your energy.  Try taking that evening course or find a new hobby this can help you transform or balance a relationship that saps the life out of you.

Focus on yourself, nurture yourself and then put your new found energy into making your life better.  Make an effort to spend time with people who make you feel good for all the right reasons.  Go after your dreams, remember who we connect with can impact on our whole life and what we wish to create.

Sometimes there is a bigger picture that can reveal the people who appear to be dragging us down, have shown up to help us step into our power or move us on to the right path. If someone is rude or aggressive remove yourself from that energy and literally go somewhere else.

By changing our energy and thoughts, we create the positive experiences we want in our life and people that we destined to meet.  Make some changes because that kind of magic can work for you.

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.

Akashic Records

akashic-reading

Akashic Records also known as the “The Book of Life”
The word akashic comes from the ancient Tibetan words “aka meaning place, and “sa” meaning unseen in the sky. When the soul emerges from the source it begins its pre-destined travel through time and space. Along its travels, it incarnates many times, growing spiritually and at the same time, fulfilling its purpose.
The Akashic Records contain every deed, word, feeling, thought, and intent that has ever occurred at any time in the history of the world. These Akashic Records are interactive in that they have a tremendous influence upon our everyday lives, our relationships, our feelings and belief systems. It is the central storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived upon the earth.
The soul emits energy with every thought, action or event that it engages in during its incarnations. This energy leaves a permanent energetic blueprint. This blueprint is in the form of a multi dimensional holographic recording of the actual events, thoughts, feelings and actions of life that the soul experienced. These hologram recordings are the akashic records.
Because every activity of the soul leaves its energy blueprint, the history of the whole universe is recorded in this hologram – including the history of our past lives and present life.
Information about these Akashic Records can be found in folklore, in myth, and throughout the old and new testaments. It is traceable at least as far back as the Semitic peoples and includes the Arabs, the Assyrians, the Phoenicians, the Babylonians, and the Hebrews. Among each of these peoples was the belief that there was in existence some kind of celestial tablets which contained the history of humankind as well as spiritual information.
The akashic records are in the Hall of Records, located in the akashic plane of the universe, an etheric plane, one of the 7 planes. These planes are energy fields that we can access through the depths of our minds. Our inner mind can access them because we, along with these fields, are made up of the same energy. It takes a lot of training to be able to access these higher vibrational frequencies.

Crystals that help with Fear and Anxiety.

th

Fear is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm! But in reality it is a lot more than that. In scientific terms, Fear is a chain reaction in the brain that starts with a stressful stimulus and ends with the release of chemicals that cause a racing heart, fast breathing and energized muscles, among other things, also known as the fight-or-flight response. Sometimes we can expect fear or anxiety, say before a big job interview, but other times it can appear seemingly out of nowhere. But whenever it appears, it can be crippling and hard to cope with. There are times that it becomes so overwhelming that we can’t even complete the task at hand. We should never have to live our lives in fear.

The Witches Hat – Lammas

lammas

Lammas: July 31st/Aug 1st/ August 2

This is an Irish Gaelic name for the feast which commemorates the funeral games of Lugh, Celtic god of light, and son of the Sun. In the mythological story of the Wheel of the Year, the Sun God transfers his power into the grain, and is sacrificed when the grain is harvested. So we have a dying, self-sacrificing and resurrecting god of the harvest, who dies for his people so that they may live.

Lammas is a festival celebrating the first fruits of harvest, the fruits of our labours, and seeing the desires that we had at the start of the year unfold so rituals will be centred around this. Lammas is an early Christian festival, “lammas” means loaf mass and represented the first loaves baked from that years crop. These were taken to church and laid on the altar.

It’s a time for bread-making and corn-dollies. Goddesses celebrated around this time include Demeter and Ceres. Trees associated with lammas are Hazel and Gorse and herbs are Sage and Meadowsweet. Colours associated with lammas are golds, yellows and orange for the God and red for the Goddess as mother.

LammasLammas is traditionally first harvest. Look around you and you will see various trees namely Rowan yeilding bright red berries and brambles showing ripening fruits alongwith apple and pear trees. In this day and age when food is mass produced and imported so we get fruits and veg and corn no matter what time of year it is, it is easy to loose touch with the natural cycle of things.

Suggested Activities:

Creating and or decorating ritual items such as a Stang. Walk through the woods to spend some time meditating in beautiful surroundings. Making bread, make a wicker man and put all of your bad habits that you want to be rid of inside him and throw him in the bonfire. Making corn dollies.
