     In my last post, I talked about what scrying is and the different kinds of tools, such crystal balls, mirrors and water (and even turned off computer screens…), that you could use for scrying.

     Now that we’ve laid the ground work, let’s prepare to scry.

     First, find a place and time where you’re as free from distractions as you can be. Lock the door, turn off the phone, shut down noisy appliances and send your family or friends to the movies. Either quiet or some kind of white noise, such as quiet background music may be helpful.

     Make yourself as comfortable as possible, not only in body, but also in mind or spirit. To do well at any kind of reading, you need to be able to focus, be present and pay attention to any input you get. This is difficult if you’re planning next week’s schedule or stressing over your friend’s romantic woes, so do your best to put other things aside for now so you can truly be present while you scry. You can always go back to these things (if you wish) after you finish.

     Take a deep breath and relax. Get ready to scry…

Coming up – basic procedures for scrying.

     I recently met a woman in a bookstore ( my natural habitat) who asked me if I knew anything about scrying. She had a bowl designed for scrying but had not yet had any sucess with it.

     Scrying is a form of psychic readings or perception that  works by gazing into a reflective surface in order to see visions. The reader interprets the visions she sees (whether  literal or symbolic) in order to gain information that was previously hidden.

     That sounds pretty cryptic, but you’re probably more aware of scrying than you think you are. The best known example of scrying is the classic “gazing into the crystal ball” , but scrying has also been done in bowls, mirrors, polished rocks, water and even metal shields. I tend to use a little glass candle holder to scry in, but any reflective item will do once you’ve got the technique.

     Different items are better for different people. You might hunger for that dramatic crystal ball but find you do much better with a polished onyx mirror or a simple candle holder like I do. While trying this, it’s important to stay flexible to your choices and find what works best for you.

     In my next post, I’ll go over preparations  for scrying. 

    See you then…

     In my last post, I went over the basic concept of Free Will – how you have been given the gift of the ability to make choices and therefore affect the quality of your life. We also looked at how the things you focus on or don’t focus on can affect the kind of people, things and events in your life.

     This post is about the Free Will of others. Just as you have Free Will, so do other people have the right to make their own choices, even if we think those choices are foolish, wasteful or wrong. Painful (especially if you care for those other people) but true.

     If those other people are making what you’d think of as bad choices, it’s o.k. to try to persuade them to change their choices. Reason with them, nag them, beg them, offer incentives or ultimatums…

     That’s all cool, because that person is still free to make his or her own choice.

     The ethical line in magick is that it’s not o.k. to take away that person’s right to chose; to cast spells, do energywork, or otherwise compel them into line with your own will. This is where you cross the line into unethical behavior.

     For example,

  • it’s o.k. to cast a spell to attract a loving romantic partner,
  • it’s not o.k. to cast a spell to make a specific person fall in love with you.
  • It’s o.k. to do energywork to be hired for a job if you’re the best candidate for it;
  • it’s not o.k. to do energywork to make someone else lose their job.

     When you violate the Free Will of others, you’re doing an unethical act. Even if that doesn’t matter to you of itself, it’s worthy of note that this tends to attract negative energy and experiences back to you (something we can all live without!). Not the best choice on your part.

     The one exception to this general rule is that, if someone is harming others, it can be ethical to magickally intervene. (We call this the “your-right-to-swing-your-fist-ends-at-the-tip-of-my-nose” proviso…) When you’re dealing with stalkers, batterers, pedophiles and the like, it is ethical to intervene to prevent harm or injury to people, animals or property, as long as you use the minimum force necessary to prevent said harm.(Grievious bodily harm to prevent your boss from yelling at you is right out…)

     When living in a magickal world, it’s important to do things ethically, to respect the rights of others even if you don’t always agree with them. Your choices affect the world around you.

     So chose wisely

    And the topic for today is Free Will!

     What is Free Will? It’s the basic concept that God, Goddess, the Universe or whoever/whatever you believe in (because opinions vary) has given you the ability to make choices-good, bad or in between. By making these choices, you have the ability to a certain extent to influence the kind of life you have (as an example, people who make better choices tend to have better lives, although this is not absolute.)

     Some people believe that Free Will means that everything in your life is there because you attracted it to you. I have a more moderate view.

     I believe that many things in our lives are there because we focused on them, whether good things or bad. Like does call to like, both magickally and in the everyday world (ever see how people group by types at parties?). If we give a majority of our time, energy and interest to things that anger or frighten us, we tend to not only draw more of what we’re focused on (that noisy neighbor) but other things that make us feel the same way (a flat tire, beauracracy, crank calls).

     I also believe we can “drift into ” things we don’t like because we’re not focusing on the things we would prefer. When we’re not focusing on anything in particular and just drifting through life, I’ve observed that we seem to be more vulnerable to what I think of as “drive-by Karma” – that “wrong place-wrong time” situation.

      This doesn’t mean I’m advocating a ” blame the victim/if it’s in your life, it’s your fault!…” mentality. Far from it!. I just believe that using our Free Will to make better choices stacks the cards in our favor in the Game of  Life – and I’d rather play that game when the cards are with me…

     So, here’s your chance.

     Make some better choices and have a better life.

     Free Will Rocks!

     We are living, as you may have noticed, in challenging times. Job insecurity, the world economy, health issues, war and a wide assortment of other concerns all contribute to a world that can seem pretty bleak. With all of that negativity weighing on us, there are certainly times when we could all use a break.

     Let me make you a gift of one…

     The next time you’re feeling anxious, angry, overwhelmed or down, instead of suffering, try this:

     Take a deep breath, and

     Look up at the ceiling.

     ( Repeat as needed…)

     Give it a try now. Think of something that brings you down ( income taxes, your least-favorite co-worker, cleaning out the fridge,…). Notice how it makes you feel,where it hits you in the body and in the spirit…

     Then breath deep and look up. Feel the difference?

     While it’s no substitute for Prozaac, most people find that when they do this, they feel more positive, centered and able to cope with whatever’s going on in their lives.

     Why’s this work?

     When we’re stressed, we breath in a short and shallow way. Breathing deeply and slowly triggers a mind-body connection saying “all is well”, and actually puts us in a better place, health and emotion-wise. Looking up seems to strengthen this reaction ( and when I’m facing challenges, I find looking up valuable for spiritual reasons as well…).

     I like to think that we’re all hardwired with ways to change our beliefs, heal ourselves, find our centers and create our own best lives.

     In any case, remember next time you’re feeling overwhelmed or down, breath deep and look up… and have a better day.

     PS  Just a thought- don’t do this in front of your boss or any other person that is contributing to stress you’re feeling. They will take it the wrong way and this is the path to more stress…

Hi.

I’m Catherine – a psychic, a bard, a teacher, a Reiki master, a metaphysical Christian and an enthusiastic student of the Universe (amongst other things…). I love to learn almost as much as I love to share what I’ve learned. My life mission is to help empower  people (including myself) to find and live the best and brightest dreams within them.

Amongst other things, I know a bit about palmistry, I Ching, dowsing, psychic skills, alternative health practices (such as Reiki and accupressure), meditation, altered states, angelwork, folk magic, the use of sound in energywork, hypnosis, past-life regression, and so forth.

If you’re looking for information, I might have an answer for you. And if I don’t , Starwolf might….

Let’s get this party started!
