Energy Grid

 

IMG_2893

Energy can be conjured up in many ways. As I am typing this out, I am surrounded by Siri playing a musical station featuring stringed instruments. So lovely how a violin and a viola cut through the air changing vibrations we can feel deeply. Scents attract many species into our space, the nose is keen for an animal’s survival. Essential oils permeate my cells today because I anointed myself before I started writing this blog. A candle glows as oxygen and fire do the tango they have done over thousands of years. Energy involves action in one form or another. We can amply this force by awareness, respect, and involvement (to but name a few ways)!

Grid work is a playful strategy of moving power which is circling us at every moment. Adding good intentions, directing loving suggestions, incorporating pieces of nature helps with coping in day to day life. Turning to the outdoors, taking earth magic and infusing the wonder into our energy field causes shifts in our being. Meditating on the imagery of an energy grid allows ripples and quakes in our mind’s pool of thought. Clarity fused with renewed pep is often the outcome of an energy grid. This is a remote technique and is a fun, colorful way to try out the mystique of shifting day to day life as you know it!

Heave Ho, Let’s Go!

On the floor next to my bed you will find slippers and 3 books I pick up and a book light.

There is communication all around us, constant and continual. The trick is to tune into the waves to pick up on incoming messages being sent your way. Example, the other morning had a fire drill effect message (mind you, not an alarm emergency siren) to get me moving at 9AM sharp. I didn’t want to budge out of bed because work was not until 1pm and lounging was my plan for at least another half hour. The urgent message to put my feet on the floor, drag a comb across my head was starling. By trusting my gut (solar plexus) over the years, listening to spirit’s whispers, and believing in other modes of communication, I don’t ignore the nudges like I used to. I know swift action is important when visual interpretations start to play out in my mind. Typically I see elementals using their might to pull, push, or roll me out of bed. A fun and playful ordeal expressing the need for me to start the day, I have no choice but to get up.

Remote energy work is amongst one of my favorite craft forms. I set up grids (taught to me as Reiki Grids) for people who request clearing out of their energy field or maybe they are interested in an extra boost for more gusto or even a person might want to simply maintain good health. A grid was active for a dear friend and changes were needed at a specific cosmological time. This is what became more apparent as the seconds went by once out of bed. Prompt movement was required most likely from windows of opportunity held open in the cosmos. I moved a few crystals to different positions on the grid, smudged (smoke from herbs), and rang Tibetan bells to evoke shifts. For my friend to benefit and take advantage of a shift the universe made available, her spirit guides worked in tangent with my guardians to have this physical human work some magic!

Pay attention to the messages, gifts, changes, whispers, inklings, radio songs, pictures, and other ways something catches your eye and thought. We are not alone in this world. Ask the incoming frequency for a clearer understanding, even meditate on the change. Practicing every day will help you put your best foot forward in the world.

A Deeper Understanding

pg4nancy

I had a private energy transmission with a wise woman who brings clean water to the people of Peru. Over the years I have attended workshops Nancy Santullo has led primarily in Connecticut. Her training and life experiences resinate with me and I consider it a privilege to call her a friend. The hour session spent was so  quiet and calm that she commented on the serenity when we were finished. I had felt a deep sense of peace and believed I was able to reach a level of meditation I had never gone into before. Generally it is difficult for me to sit still. Over the years, my aging has slowed me down considerably. Very rarely are self pampering appointments done with little talking on my part. With Nancy, I was at ease while maintaining a place of awareness I would consider transcendental.

My new understanding of meditation achieved from last Friday still has me reflecting on that hour’s magical shifts. The art form of being still has finally sunk into my soul which I deem a spiritual awakening. Looking up Transcendental Meditation, it’s a practice founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and only correctly learned from trained certified personal. Of course there are books and many research programs from the 70’s to the present validating the benefits of Transcendental Meditation (TM).

From the Mayo Clinic as appears on the TM website:

“Transcendental meditation is a simple, natural technique… This form of meditation allows your body to settle into a state of profound rest and relaxation and your mind to achieve a state of inner peace, without needing to use concentration or effort.”

Disney’s Elementals

LookingUp

This is the second trip into Florida’s Walt Disney World that has me pondering the types of fairies and other elementals hanging out in Walt’s woods. During the bus ride from the resort to park, I was gazing out the window relaxed, excited for our day at the happiest place in the world. Typically I can see (in my minds eye) the spirits in the wooded patches. Not too many elementals come close to the roadside, not many are eager to participate in human activities or looking for attention. Like us, they peer from behind cover to see what is going on and sometimes venturing out the front door to have a better look.  I have found over the years, there are specific pockets of woodland inhabitance throughout a patch of woods. Why elementals do not mimic urban sprawl, my guess is the area chosen is ideal for life and the group enjoys a particular spot to suit their needs. Sometimes, as a passenger driving by, I get a clear picture of what lurks in the woods but I could not categorize the fae groups noticed in Disney. What registered with me did not fit into a specific category or match up with the features I have seen before. They were not Fairies like I am used to seeing, nor were they Dwarves or Elves as typically associated from my mental vaults. What came to me as I questioned who I was observing, these beings are specific to Disney. The most magical place on earth has developed their own style and form of woodland beings!

FairyWatering

The energy, feel of the friends’ in the woods was liking to a second cousin. I recognized all of them but had to pause because the features were different. I am honored a few stepped forward to say “hello” to me as I went by. Even now as I write this, love is being sent their way for the consideration shown to me, a human. To help build your communications with the unseen world, do a deed to benefit wellbeing. Many humans lack compassion for the earth and it’s water systems. Be the person who is thoughtful and caring to nature. Pick up garbage even though it is not yours. Become mindful with what fertilizers or weed prevention you are putting on your lawn. Think more about the soap used to wash your car with. Know, like your lawn, it will adventurually get into the water system. Communication is held in all sorts of ways. Actions are one of the best examples to insure better relationships with neighbors. Love your neighbors. Treat them with equal respect by appreciating nature and all it does for us without asking much in return. Enjoy a healthy communication with the benefit of life in balance.

Experiencing the Joy from Dreams

Taking the time to stop and see the joy!

Walt Disney World, one of the happiest places in the world! My husband and I are fresh back from a 5 day vacation. We jetted over to see the holiday lights and absorb some sunshine. I knew the time spent would be spectacular but I was not expecting the overwhelming joy, overflowing into tears, so often.

Mr. and Mrs. took time out of their schedule to spend time with us!

Music fills the air, smiles are plentiful, weather showing off, smells circling noses, eyes registering splendor…

Magic happens at Disney every second!

Countries all over celebrate during the winter months.

There is something that place brings about sheer happiness within and without. The feeling of specialness the park, resorts, and employees share with those of us visiting would make the grumpiest person warm inside.

We visited happy and left even happier!

What I Need to Understand

IMG_3212

I have a free day today. I’m attempting to fill it with a mix of catching up on the Internet, physical cleaning of the living quarters, and listening to my inner voice. Feeling I’ve achieved many of those tasks, it’s time to write in order to solidify what I am coming to understand.

I am the only one who can make a change. With my words and actions, the environment I dwell in will only improve with my actions within and without myself.  Grasping my abilities as an energy practitioner and believing in what I do will ramp up the results.

It’s an interesting mix of emotions with a tug of war with my ego and natural abilities. I never want to come across as someone who knows it all. I want to have that air of Glinda who smiles while saying, “You had to find it out all for yourself!”

Today though, today I am realizing to be the person, holding the wand and ensuring the other, they have known the answer all along is to believe in the magic myself. Knowing that if I ask for something there is a very good chance the wish will be granted. It is important to keep on asking and keep on wishing with a strong belief the message is being heard.

Today was different for me. Later on tonight, my husband and I will be signing a contract to move into a condo a few miles down the road, in another town. For better part of the morning I could not stop crying. After reflecting on my emotions a bit more, I realized it was not all me. I was picking up on other emotions running high in my general area. The elementals in the yard were wondering what was going on. They had been piecing together snippets of conversations from inside of the house along with other events not typical everyday going ons. The meltdown I was experiencing prompted a phone call from my husband to find out if I was OK or not. We had been Emailing a few times during the morning hours. He was exactly the person I needed to talk with. Reflecting on the emotions and conversation, it was more like him listening to me explain how difficult it is to part with my friends in the yard.

The landscape here, presently, is not manicured, not much lawn and a whole lot of rock. We have cut down trees to assist with the overall look and health of the land. Bushes, flowers and other plants have come in with the assistance of the animals. It’s pretty in a natural habitat type of way. The wildlife is very comfortable here, foxes have been spied sunning themselves in the driveway and deer have bedded down in the back yard for an afternoon siesta.

whole lot of rocks

Because I wanted to make sure everyone (by everyone, I mean the elementals) was on the same page and getting the information correctly. It was up to me to step outside and explain what was going to be happening in the next few weeks. To make sure my voice was heard clearly, I thought to use some wands. Twice, at different times within a half hour, I stepped out onto the back deck with the Fairy Wand in one hand and the Quartz Point Amplifier Wand in the other. My goal was to explain what was what because they should be privy to how their life is going to be effected and what changes will be happing to them too.

“Hello, I wanted you to hear it from me so you have a better understanding of what will be going on with this house and your land in the coming months. We are going to be moving to another house. Many of the rocks and other fun items I’ve shared with you over the time together here will stay. Another owner will be moving into this house and we will make sure they will be a match for you.

In the new home, I will put a few bottles on the trees, toss some buttons in the yard and greet you often, like I do here. Please let your cousins know we will be visiting them soon AND know you are always welcome to come over and play. I love you all so very, very much and appreciate all the love you have always given back to me, over the years.”

I made sure I went into the front yard to explain the human happenings again. Every direction will have a different vibe to it but for me I typically address the front and the back of the yard. The sense I get from the front yard is more serious to me, kind of an elder feeling whereas the back yard is a bunch of rambunctious silly heads! For some reason, the conversation turned to a question and answer session. I answered the enquires even though many of them were repeats from what I just said out loud. My inner understanding of elemental proper communication is by sound and intense emotional expression. I stared to point the wands to areas with hopes of conveying what my human words were sounding with hopes of being understood.

The two signs that helped me feel stronger with it all were received from both the front and back yard. In the back, the second time I stepped out onto the deck, a gust of wind brought down some light snow. This sprinkling of flakes shown like glitter in the sunlight and lightly brushed against my face and body. “Fairy dust!” I though in my mind as tears welled up once again with joy, love and appreciation. From the front, during the Q&A session, I was asked what I would be taking with us. More specifically, what yard ornaments would be going to the new residence. I started pointing the wands to items as I answered. As I was just about to indicate the chakra wind chime, one of the stones struck the metal bar. “Yes, I will be taking that wind chime with us!” I said out loud.

My take on magic wands.

For the past few years, I’ve conducted wand making workshops. The store where I’m offering my home-based workshops would like a demonstration of how to use a wand in energy work. Next month I will be holding a workshop introducing wand work to people who are interested. I plan on bringing the handout I give to the making group and will use that as my blue index cards. I would like to make it very causal with lots of participation, actually this is how I conduct many of my workshops. Below is a writing on wands and pretty close to what one would expect from attending.

I crafted my own wand because I wanted one and could not find any that seemed right for me, as simple as that. I don’t belong to a specific religious group or craft, I wanted something that would amplify my wishes and needed a wand.

 In my bag of White Sage there was a stem about 7 inches long. I found it by unraveling one of my sage bundles. That seemed to be the perfect base for a wand, especially since White Sage has clearing properties and would be beneficial to keep the wand clear at all times. I am against using glue (another reason for not purchasing in shops) therefore beads would be strung and wrapped around. Looking through my life long bead collection I chose ones I loved, making sure a variety was incorporated ensuring the most magic and beauty a wand could contain.

“What can you use a wand for?” is a common question I’m asked. Again, the answer is simple, “What ever your heart desires!” I use the wand above to make wishes. When I need support, the wand travels with me. Sitting on the kitchen window sill fills the wand with energy and sparkles when the sun hits it just right. My wands make me happy and feeling special. Taking aim at what I’m striving to achieve is more doable with a wand in hand.

There are several I have crafted for myself and several I have given as gifts, along with consigning them. All are unique, even those that seem to be similar in color or structure had a different feeling about them. I have developed a wand making workshop, none of those are quite the same either. The amazement and joy I get from hosting a workshop or adorning a tree branch is something to be experienced because it’s difficult to put it into words. I’ve tried to give descriptions for advertising and have worked on signage for displays but it really is something to participate in to get the full understanding.

A list of my personal wands to date:

My First Wand     (rewrapped once cause of a life lesson learned)

Ancestor Wand   (adorned with button collections of women present and past)

Fairy Wand          (sparkles, shimmers and dangling chip stones)

Quarts Point Wand     (nickname, The Amplifier)

ChakraWand       (Rainbow chip stones and glass seed beads)

Elemental-Series-Wands  (Earth, Fire and Water are completed)
