    They say three is a magick number.

     Well, this is our third and final weekend at the Midsummer Magic Rennaisance Faire. The last weekend for Starwolf and I and our good friend Delilah to be offering readings in this magickal medieval land.

     It’s your last chance, too.  Last chance to wander the hills and vales of medieval Caerlyon. To marvel at the bards and frolic with the fools. To catch the magick of Merlin or Daniel Greenwolf.

     And to see us at this faire, too.

    We hope you’ll come see us and all the fun at Midsummer Magic Faire in Oxford, Ct. Get a reading, talk about things mystical or just say “hi!”…

     We’ll see you there.

     I’ve been talking a lot about using energetic shields for protection under an assortment of conditions. Now I want to talk about another standard skill in metaphysics – energetic grounding.

     What’s grounding?

     Metaphysical grounding is connecting energy to the Earth, in order to increase the ability to manage the energy present and function effectively.

     In electrical circuits, you may have a third hole in a socket to hold the third prong on your electrical plug. This arrangement will drain or “ground out” excess energy, preventing harm to appliances or the electrical system.

     Metaphysical grounding works kind of like that. There are many reasons you might need to ground, but there are two that are the most likely:

     1) When you do a lot of metaphysical activity, you’ll find a point where you start to get unfocused or vague ( how much is a “lot” varies dependant on the person and the conditions prevailing…). You may get dizzy, start to slur your words or have problems making simple decisions( amongst other things)

             At this point, you’re poorly grounded. Processing more magick/ psychic/ metaphysical energy than your body is able to handle at the moment has made your energetic connection with the Earth and physical things, including your body, weaker; and interfered with your ability to function effectively in physical space.

     Grounding can strengthen that connection, enabling you to function well again,whether physically or metaphysically.

     2) Even if you have great shields, sometimes you’ll end up picking up someone else’s negative energy. For that matter, everyone has times where they generate their own negative energy ( had a bad hair day lately?)

     Negative energy can limit your ability to do things, mess with your health and attract negative experiences (since like calls to like). If you’ve got some, it’s best to get rid of it.

     Grounding is a way of getting rid of negative energy, and adding the intention that Mother Earth will recycle it into something positive can yield benefits for all.

     There are lots of different ways to ground, and we’ll be going over a bunch of these in posts to come.

     See you soon

     We’ve talked about energetic shields -what they are and why we need ’em…

        We’ve talked about a simple way to start to build your shields… 

           We’ve talked about  empaths and why they need shields…

                Now let’s talk about tweaking those basic shields 

                        to meet an empath’s special needs…

     As you may recall, in a previous post, we went into combining intention with visualizing light to build basic personal shields. These shields are designed to insulate and protect you from energy from outside of our energetic field, negative energy in particular.

     An empath without shields experiences the feelings and emotional vibes around her as if they were her own. She especially needs shields that keep her emotional energy separate and distinct from that of those around her so she is not overwhelmed by the energy around her, can function as an individual  and can use her gift, rather than be used by it…  

     If you’re an empath and you want to be able to use your gift, you need shields that will let you perceive emotional energy without actually taking it into yourself and experiencing it as your own.

      To do this, start with the basic technique we went over in “Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields 2” (Need to review? Go ahead-I’ll wait…).

      As you picture the light around you, set your intention that your shields will only let emotional energy actually touch you if you consciously chose to let it do so.  Make it your intention that any emotional energy that comes flying towards you that you do not chose to let in will stop at the outside edge of your shields (I tend to think of it as being like a bug on a windshield…), and that you’ll be able to perceive the information that energy has to give you without taking it into yourself, experiencing it as your own feelings and becoming overwhelmed.

      Over time, your shields will become strong but flexible, able to give you the coverage you need in any circumstance, without cutting you off from the benefits of psychic empathy.

     Pretty cool, that. And all for the cost of a little focussed daydreaming…

     There’s more metaphysical marvels on the horizon…

PS Just for the record, empaths can be either male or female. It’s just easier and  more readable to refer to one gender at a time

     It’s my birthday today. And, being the kind of funky, esoteric, quality-of-life kind of psychic I am, it got me thinking about Free Will and Time and how people react to them.

     Often, when I read a palm, see a long life-line and tell my client that she’s going to live a long life, something strange happens. She’ll make a face, or say something about not wanting to live that long. Not from a suicidal sense. Just not wanting to get ( insert dramatic chord here) OLD…

    What do you think that’s about?

     It’s not like age means misery. There are plenty of chronologically abundant people traveling, creating, achieving and living their dreams (and having a great time doing it!).

     It’s not like age means illness. There are many year-enriched people who are in better shape than I am.

     It’s not like age means the end of everything. There are lots of hyper-experienced people who find that getting older means they can stop living up to everyone else’s expectations and start living up to their own.

     It seems that certain societal stories have made such a bug-a-boo of getting older that people are afraid to even look at the possibilities. That the adventure still lies ahead…

     So, when that client makes that face, I sometimes wonder why she wouldn’t want to have the most time to live possible. Time to live, time to love, time to laugh and learn and light another’s way…

     And if that time doesn’t seem appealing, I wonder if the problem is not so much with all those many years, but rather more with whether my client is living a bright and wondrous life now.

     For me, the best age to be is whatever age I am. There’s always something new to learn, something known to get better at, someone new to meet. While I wouldn’t mind having my 20 year-old knees back, I’m glad to be 51 and excited about what’s yet to come.

     I wish that joy and excitement was something I could give to everyone. We’re all getting older, it’s a fact of life; and it seems a pity to me when people fear that rather than embrace it.

     And this is where our friend Free Will rides to the rescue…

     Free Will gives us the choice at every moment to be present and enjoy what’s happening.

     Free Will lets us chose to live our dreams instead of drifting through life.

     Free Will empowers us to love what we love and do what we love, even if someone else says we’re too old and should sit down and act our ages.

     And with Free Will, it’s never too late to chose to have a happy childhood. To live our dreams. To make the world a better place.

     Free Will rocks!

      Today is my 51st birthday.. I’m out of my first half-century and into my second…

     And I couldn’t be happier.

     Happy birthday to me!

     Happy birthday to you!

     Happy birthday to all of us!

     In previous posts(see “Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields“), I discussed what energetic shields are, why you might want to have them, and a basic technique to start developing your shields. This post is about tweaking energetic shields to serve the specific needs of an empath.

     What’s an empath?

     A psychic empath (as opposed to someone who’s psychologically empathetic, which is something totally different) is a particular type of psychic who’s really tuned in to feelings and emotional vibes. Empaths receive information from these “vibes” which can be useful for things like truly connecting with and understanding people, resolving difficulties, motivating folks and knowing who to trust ( amongst other things).

     With weak, poor or no shields, an empath will experience the emotions of everyone she comes in contact with as her own, whether she wants to or not. For instance, if you’re a poorly shielded empath, you may be feeling absolutely fine, but if an angry person comes into the room, all of a sudden you’ll find yourself feeling more and more angry for no particular reason, even if that person doesn’t say a word to you or have any direct interaction with you at all.

     This kind of uncontrolled experience can be very overwhelming- it can even make you feel a bit crazy. And other people won’t undersand you because you’ll be reacting to things they aren’t experiencing yourself.

     This is why you need good energetic shields.

     Good shields keep the emotional energy of others safely outside of your energetic field, while they keep your emotional energy safely inside your energetic field. They let you perceive the difference between your own emotions and the emotions you receive energetically from others( I like to think of it as the difference between “mine” and “thine”.) They let you receive the information that emotional energy gives you without the necessity of taking it into your body and experiencing it as your own.

     In my next post on shields, I’ll go into how to tweak the basic energetic shields so they more specifically meet an empath’s needs.

     Til then

     If you’ve been working with the basic visualization for building energetic shields( Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields 2) , you’re probably finding that you’re getting better control over how the energy around you effects you. You have more ability to chose- chose what energy you let in and what you chose to keep outside of you.

      But what if your shields aren’t always enough?…

     In every person’s life, there are times that particularly test us- even if you have great shields…..

  • In the face of bigotry
  • In the malls at Christmastime;
  • When the one you love is really, really ticked at you;

     We all face times when the stakes are high, the energy is flowing double-time (…or triple-time, or a hundred-fold…), and our shields feel like we’ve built them out of Swiss Cheese (nice, but full of holes…).

     What to do?

     This is the point to give your shields an upgrade…

     Start with the basic shields. Set your intention ( remember how?) that the basic shields you’re building will be on at all times, unless you consciously chose to ake them down. Add a further intention that, at times that are energetically challenging, you can consciously chose to increase those shields according to your personal needs.

     What do I mean by “increase” ?  Well, you can make your shields:

  • Stronger;
  • Thicker;
  • More resilient (so negative energy bounces off and far away);
  • More powerful;
  • More energetic (up the amps);
  • More adhesive ( so negative energy gets stuck at the edge and can’t reach you;
  • Any combination of the above;
  • Or any other concept that works for you…

     In tough times, I like to mentally “flare” the energy in my shields and then push the extra energy outwards  with my mind. It makes my shields  feel stronger and more powerful, and gives me more control on what outside energy I accept.

     Once you’e got the basic shields in place, it’s good to add a “shields up!” upgrade to your routine, and get it in place as a familiar practice while times are relatively calm. This means that, when you have a need for it, you’ll have built both the upgraded shields and the habit of using them.

      And you’ll be ready for whatever Life brings you…

     There’s more good stuff coming…

     In a previous post ( Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields) , I went over some basic parameters on why good energetic shields are a good idea and some reasons you might want to have them.

     But how do you get good energetic shields? You can’t just go to the local Best Buy and pick them up in the “energetic shields” department…

     Hence, this post. We’re going to start with a simple way to start developing  your energetic shields…

     Whenever you have a moment (or two or ten…) close your eyes and picture yourself surrounded by light. Light on the left of you and the right; light in front of you and in back; light over your head and under your feet ; so you’re surrounded completely on all sides by light.

     What color should the light be? Tradition holds that it should be white as that is the highest/purest/ best color and also contains all other colors within it.

     I say that you should chose whatever color makes you feel safest/ calmest/ best with yourself.

  • Like green? Great!
  • Want Pink? Right on!
  • If you want plaid, I’m for it!

      You can also have more than one color. My own shields tend to be white with a gold edge.

     As you visualize this light, set an intention to define what your shields will do for you.

  • Intend that you will be protected from any energy that could harm you in body, mind or spirit;
  • Intend that no energy will directly touch you unless you consciously chose to let it;
  • Intend that you will be aware of the energy surrounding you, but that it cannot effect you;
  • Intend that your shields are always protecting you unless you consciously chose to let them down;

     You get the idea.

     What would you like your shields to do?

      As you do your visualizations, you’ll find over time that you feel more protected and more able to cope with the energy that surrounds you. Once your basic shields are functioning, you can tweak your visualizations and/or your intent to fine-tune your shields to best meet your unique needs.

     That’s it for now- more info on protection will be coming in future posts.

     In a previous post (Metaphysical Protection-An Overview), we examined the issue of metaphysical protection- do you need it?/ how much?/what kind?/ and more. Now let’s take a look at a basic way of protecting yourself.

     When you’re dealing with metaphysical protection, we need to start with the energetic system of the body. We’re all surrounded by a series of layers of personal energy, collectively known as an aura. When negative energy or things come into our auras, they can cause negative experiences for us, such as illness, accident, fear, energetic drain or other things that most people would rather not go through. As the negative energies pass through the layers of our aura, the closer they come to our bodies, the stronger the effect they have on us.

     Furthermore, if you’re repeatedly or habitually exposed to such negative energies long term, they can “take up residence” in your aura, having a cumulatative effect.

      Did your mother ever say “If you hold that face long enough, it’ll stick that way?” Mine did. And negative energy can act that way.

  • If you hang out with people who are habitually cruel;
  • If you live in a place with chronically toxic energy and don’t clear that energy;
  • If you’re an empath surrounded by drama queens;

               And so forth….

 you can develop a case of chronic negative energy and chronic problems to go with it.

      If you’re caught in a pattern of chronic exposure to negative energy, this is where some of the potions and other remedies noted in this blog  (such as crystals) can come in handy.

     But you’ll still need good energetic shields…    

     Whether you’re dealing with empathic overload, psychic vampires, metaphysical attack or a toxic environment, one of your primary defenses is good energetic shields. Good shields will surround your energetic field, keeping out things that could harm you. Picture them as being kind of like a science fiction-type force field ( “…Shields up!…”).

     In my next post on protection, I’ll give you a basic technique for developing energetic shields.

     Until then
