I got talking with another psychic recently. We were talking shop about doing  multiple readings at events and faires.

“Do you find that you get drained after you do a lot of readings?…” she asked.

Well, yes….and no…

Any psychic will feel drain after doing enough readings (and how much is enough varies from person to person.) And, as a person with a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome, I have even more reasons to be concerned with energy conservation.

But there are things you can do to control drain….

Eat right -  There’s good nutrition,and that’s important. But on top of that, different bodies need different things. Some folks get energy from sugar,others are depleted by it. Some folks thrive on vegetarian, others need meat. Listen to your body and give it what gives you energy.

Hydrate  Dehydration will make you hit your wall. Have water close at hand and drink.

Take breaks  When you feel yourself beginning to feel spacey or drained, it’s time to take a little break. Stretch. Take a brief, brisk walk. Hit the bathroom and wash your face in cool water.

Set an intention  …that you will have the energy you need to help the people who need you

Energetic shields  I’ve written previously about how energetic shields can help keep you from being overwhelmed or trashed by the energy of people around you. (Search this blog for details.)

 Well, one thing that can drain you while doing readings is picking up too much energy, especially negative energy, from the people that you’re reading for. Setting your shields to allow enough energy to read without being drained can help you

Ground when excess or negative energy gets past your shields and seizes you by the lapels, it’s time to ground that energy out into the earth . (there are lots of articles on grounding on this blog, too)

And listen to your body. When it tells you its time to stop, stop.

What do you do to keep from draining yourself when doing readings?…

The next Rune is Stan.  It’s sound is “st”  and it’s meaning is “stone”.
Magickally, it can be used to lay the foundation for an action or (and I do not recomend this) to place a “stumbling block” in an opponent’s way.
Untill next time.

The next rune is Kalk. It’s sound is “K”,  and it’s basic meaning is chalice.
Magickally, it can be used to bring things to an end, as in ending a relationship or an association.
Till next week.

A few months back, Starwolf and I were camping out at a renaissance  faire.

We had just climbed into bed in our booth when rain began to patter on the roof of the tent.

We looked at each other. Rain might mean no customers the following day,and, on top of that, meant packing up wet gear for a long drive back to Connecticut at the end of the weekend. No fun.

So we started to play a gentle manifestation game called “Wouldn’t it be nice?”…

“Wouldn’t it be nice” I said “if the rain eased off..”

And the rain slowed…

“Wouldn’t it be nice ” said Starwolf  “if the rain turned to a slight drizzle and nothing more…”

And the rain slowed even more….

“Wouldn’t it be nice” I said “if t stopped raining altogether..”

And the rain totally stopped.

In the darkness, Starwolf looked at me. I looked him.

“Wouldn’t it be nice” said Starwolf  “if we won several million dollars in the lottery…”

And it began to rain again..

   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *  *   *     *   *   *   *   *

So what happened there?

Well, in theory, it is no more difficult to manifest a million dollar than a cup of coffee.

In practice, the beliefs we have have an effect on how effective we are at manifestation. If you believe that it’s harder to manifest one thing than another, or that manifestation doesn’t work at all, you create resisitance, which can make it harder to manifest something.

Because we believe that weather can possibly be influenced, a gentle manifestation technique (like “Wouldn’t it be nice?…”) can have an effect on it. Because it’s a bigger leap of faith to manifest a wind fall of that level, we haven’t gotten there yet (and the rain retarted jut to make the point…)

Have you been experimenting with manifestation and not suceeding? Then maybe it’s time to look at your beliefs and the resistance they are creating…

There are many good things that have happened in the past year; but for many people, 2011 has been challenging. And, delightful or challenging, this year is winding its way to an end.

Whether your year has been a good one or fraught with “learning experiences”, we could all use an even better one next year in 2012. For that reason, as the holidays make their way to a close, I’d like to invite you to join me in doing a little energy work with a thought towards prosperity, health and joy in the coming year.

A goodly number of us spend at least part of the week picking up after the holidays or in preparation for the New Year. There’s fridges to clean out, wrapping paper and boxes to discard, gifts to find homes for, decorations to stow away.  And as you clean, or straighten, or declutter, you can make your efforts do double duty.

Set an intention as you bring your home back into balance. As you discard things you don’t need anymore, intend that you are letting go of the thoughts, beliefs, and outmoded energy that no longer serves you, to make room for better beliefs and energy. As you find a home for gifts, intend a blessing that flows between you and the giver, blessing you both. As you clean, intend that making your house more welcoming welcomes new blessings into your life.

(For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of setting an intention, an intention is just a goal used to focus the energy in an activity to manifest a change in the world by non-ordinary means. More details can be found in other posts on this blog. …)

And, as you set your intentions, know that you are changing your energetic vibration and attracting more of the kind of things you want into your life.

Then watch and see what 2012 brings for you

Happy New Year to come

Catherine

( for more prosperity and joy in 2012, follow this link to “Bringing in the New Year” , a post  on beliefs from around the world on things to do for New Years’ to make the coming year healthier, happier, and more prosperous. Enjoy!)

Deck them halls and hang that holly. We’ve looked at some gift ideas so far from the worlds of alternative health and personal growth. How about some presents from the world of metaphysics?

Before you start, the first step is to find out what area of metaphysics interests your recipient. Metaphysics covers a wide range of interests, from magick to New Age to certain spiritual paths, such as Wicca; and a great gift for one area is not so great for another.

Showing an interest in what path your recipient is on is respectful, and giving a great gift because you’ve done your homework rocks.

Good vibrations -

A physical space can gather dust, and it can also retain the vibrations of the things that have happened there – and those aren’t always good vibrations. These vibrations can affect the energy of the space and how folks feel there.

If your loved one feels the energy of his or her space needs help, a gift of things that can clear negative energy or help improve the energy in a space is useful. Sage for smudging. Singing bowls and other instruments for smudging with sound. Crystals such as rose quartz to create a more positive supportive energy field.

The symbol is the thing –

In manifestation work, having a concrete symbol of the thing you’re trying to manifest can be helpful to focus on. A model of a wished for car, a picture of that dream house, or a mocked up magazine cover with your friend as the new number one actor in America can be a start in manifesting that dream.

The tools of the trade -

Every activity has its own equipment, and metaphysics is no exception. Whether the person you’re shopping for uses herbs, candles, or obscure New Age gadgets, a gift of  the right tools or supplies supports that individual’s path or practices and makes the season bright.

The gift of knowledge -

 Whether you’re exploring and expanding the boundaries of energy, reality, magick or spirit, the knowledge of those who came before you can make your own journey better and more effective.

Books, recordings and classes in the metaphysical area of your recipient’s interest are always a good choice (and if you’re not sure exactly what to get, a gift card that puts a friend or loved one in a position to choose exactly what they most need next is an excellent gift.)

There’s four different areas to do your holiday shopping in a metaphysical area. But we’re not done yet…

At this point we leave the Elder Furthark, and cover Anglo-Frisian Runes, a group of 9 Runes that follow Tyr’s Aett in the Anglo-Saxon/Frisian Furthark.

Rune 25 is  AC . Its sound is “ak” and its basic meaning is Oak . Magickally, it can be used to add energy to a spell or working.
