How to Stop Absorbing Other People’s Energy

When you have 20 minutes, please watch. I am new to the teachings of Ralph Smart and have become a fast student seeking out more of his works. I believe in what he saids and have heard it before over my lifetime. The secret to a presenter is how the material is conveyed. I like his way of presentation and demeanor. Thank you for reminding me on how to not absorb others energy.

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.

Feeling the Vibe

I fell in love with this house the first time I saw it on the Internet

Our house is up for sale and know it’s sending out the vibe to the future owners to notice and come over and have a look! There are all types of words to use when expressing a feeling or event. I like using vibe because vibration means pressure waves, something making unseen but noticeable motion. Vibrations are usually detected by a variety of our senses. Vibe covers a lot of metaphysical territory and is a sweet hip 60’s retro word too.

Lately, I’ve had a few people tell me that my energy has a good feeling. The compliments have caught me off guard yet have been an indicator to the positive vibes sent out when I’m conducting energy work or just having a casual conversation. With the sale of our first home, it is very important to me to keep up the good vibes within and without the property. My heart sang when my real estate agent said to me this morning, “… the house has a good energy to it…” giving me hope in reaching the next owner though metaphysical means along with the common rituals of selling a house.

I do have a small gong outside of my front door which I strike to carry the sentiment or positive vibe I want to share with the world.

The past few months the house has been on the market have been quiet. Our original realtor made a career change prompting us to seek out a new agent. Reflecting on how we have gotten to this day and enjoying the turn of events only promotes the joy I feel. I believe when we are absolutely suppose to be aware of something, it will ring true in a very recognizable way. It was a very good day today and wanted to share in the good vibes!

Tools to Assist: Divination

Everyone uses some type of tool to get a job started or completed. Over the years and throughout our life experiences, we learn about all sorts of handy objects to assist us with projects.

Divination was taught to me over a year ago, it is a new process for me, well at least I thought it was. While writing this piece, I’ve realized I have stared at inanimate objects all my life. What was missing was the intention to notice messages coming though.

The August Blue Moon has caused a few different psychic effects for me. Usually the moon influences me two days before totality and 2 days after. Saturday night, the call to gaze into a piece of Blue Aventurine had to be heeded. Using this tool to look into the future and call bits of wisdom to my attention, would be my third time using the divination process.

The messages I got from simply clearing my mind and listening to the first thought or voice that came forward:

Glimmer, glimmer of hope (my interpretation, keep on dreaming)

All things in stride (all is fine, all will unfold in time)

Clean it up (choose better foods for my body)

Go deeper (keep on seeking understanding)

What to Expect from an Energy Session

Sometimes giving too much of an explanation is not necessarily a good thing, especially when you are skeptical to begin with. However, some type of introduction to what you are about to experience can be helpful and even tamp down some of those I don’t know if this is for me feelings. In my opinion, the receiver has to be willing and ready in order for healing energy to be absorbed gracefully. When a first time client comes to me, I typically tell them what to expect from an energy session from me… and it goes a little like this:

You (fully clothed) will be situated in a safe and relaxing environment (my living room) seated in a reclining lounge chair with blankets and pillows. It will not be a massage but every now and then I will place my hands on your arms or legs, which is referred to as “light touch”. Music can be playing or not, it is easy for me to taylor the surroundings to your comfort level.

Because I love the mineral kingdom, rocks are all around this room (as well as the house) and I often used them while conducting energy work. The method that I use is a mixture of modalities that I have learned over the years and the technique is by instinct (rather than by books or notes). Because I believe in the power and energy of rocks, sometimes I will ask you to hold them or will place them under the chair you’re on.

My physic skills have improved allowing for a dialog of sorts to happen between us. I can usually pick up on what your body wants or needs to improve health. I also get  communications which may be important on some level regarding just about anything.  This information, along with other messages, can be shared with you, if you wish. I make a strong attempt to just tell you what I am picking up on and allow you to decipher the messages.

Each healing practitioner is different and has undergone various trainings from teachers and workshops. Just like with many things in life, it might take awhile to find a good match for this type of work. I encourage you to try new things and ask for the sample package if you are not willing to undergo a full session. In my opinion someone who is looking out for your best interest will answer your questions and share information on how they have come to practice energy work.

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)

Listen to the trees, for they have a lot to say.

New Englander’s can’t help but marvel at the trees that fill our landscape. This part of the country is known for it’s amazing foliage come the fall season. Trees are the primary producers in ecosystems which serve so many functions in this world. Next time you need some advice or plan on meditating, go outside and listen to a tree, for they have a lot to say.

Become still near a tree; hush your mind and relax. Focus your awareness on the tree, touch it with your physical hand and make your other senses available to envelop it’s majesty. Introduce yourself, as you would another living thing, and extend common courtesy, like a flattering complement. Ask a question that only a tree would have vast wisdom about, remember they are always observing. Settle into a meditative state and have a conversation with the tree. Don’t forget to give thanks when it is time to part as you would a dear friend. You will most likely be walking in greater awareness for the rest of the day because you have a new confidant on the earth.

If you can believe that everything is energy based (objects contain a specific amount of life force) and that all matter has some type of conscience within… then you understand that everything we come across throughout our day, is important for our well-being. Paying attention to one thing, no matter how big or small, allows other objects, situations, events, and life to become clearer in a way that makes perfect sense.
