So here we are in the holiday times of the year. It’s a wonderful time, but it can also be a stressful one.

No matter what spiritual path you’re on, , it’s easy to get stressed during the holidays, given everything we  try to get done then. Even if we’re working hard at making merry, we all can use a way to let go of stress at holiday time

In expectation of miracleLet me make you an early holiday gift of one…(It’s a gift that keeps giving…)

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 does 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.

And, by the by, this technique is not just for the holidays, but works all year long. …

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

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

Right now, we’re living in a world in flux. Not only the everyday stresses, but lots of other big things going on. Terrorism. Political upheaval. The economy. War.

And a lot of people find this all overwhelming. Even scary.

That’s a reasonable reaction- but there’s one that’s even better.

Don’t focus on what’s wrong in the world. Focus on what’s right instead. Count your blessings. Give thanks

The Law of Attraction says that what we focus most on determines what we get more of, whether by attracting it to us or by manifesting it out of nowhere. When we focus on what’s right with our world, we shape it into something better and we attract more of the good stuff

And in this day and age, that may not only improve our lives, but also the lives of the people around us as well.

So, on this day of Thanksgiving,  take time to give thanks. As you enjoy your turkey, count your blessings and give thanks for all of the things that are good in your life and everything that is working

And make this world a better place

Happy Thanksgiving

Catherine

Whether you’ve got a metaphysical tool that’s picked up some energy you don’t want to hold on to, or whether it’s a new tool and you don’t know what it’s already carrying, you’re gonna want to clear your tools of unwanted energyteal aura eyes C

One way to do that is with sunlight or moonlight.

Natural light, especially when paired with an appropriate intention has a great deal of power for clearing out that negative energy. Some people will leave a tool in the sunlight or moonlight for 24 hours, others prefer a full solar or lunar cycle.

Find a place where you can leave tools so that they are exposed to sun or moonlight but still safe and private. Some folks like to leave them outside- I usually put crystals and other items in the bathroom window on the back of my house, where they can take the sun without someone else helping themselves to them

When your tool has had its sun bath, pick it up, close your eyes and pay attention. How does it feel- does it feel clear and open to you, or is it still buzzing with excess unwanted or negative energy? Sometimes tools may need additional time to clear.

More ways to clear tools are coming…

You clear the energy of tools when they’re new, to be sure that they haven’t picked up other energy that  you don’t want and that could affect what you’re doing with them. You clear the energy of tools when you’ve had them for awhile, because even if you’re the only one using them, they may still pick up energy you don’t want them to carry.

You clear the energy of your tools when your inner wisdom tells you it’s time to clear them.

And, before we get into the various ways that you can clear the energy of tools,  lets start out with a step that you will use with just about every method of clearing your tools.

Let’s start with setting an intention.teal aura eyes C

As I’ve said before, setting an intention  just a fancy-schmancy way of setting a goal for what your energywork (be it spell, visualization, prayer or energy manipulation) is going to do. In this case, the intention will be something like “It is my intention that the ________ will clear any unwanted energy out of this tool, leaving it in perfect condition for me to work with.”

(Please note- those words are not exact and you may substitute a way of saying that that you feel comfortable with. The example is just to give you a template to work with.)

How do you set that intention? You can:

  • Think it.
  • Say it.
  • Chant it
  • Sing it.
  • Write it (once or as many times as seems right to you. Three is a magick number, for instance)
  • Put it out to the Universe in any other way that seems right to you.

And focus on your intention as you go ahead and do your clearing process- because energy flows where your attention goes.

Easy- peasy…

And now, we’re ready to go on to ways to clear your tools of unwanted energy…

We know that, when our vibrational level is higher, we tend to attract better people, things and experiences into our lives.

We know that nurturing ourselves is one way to fill our buckets and raise our vibrational levels.

And still, many times, we forget to do it.

So, what’s up with that?

Most of us are raised with beliefs that work against nurturing ourselves

  • Don’t be selfish.
  • Work before play.
  • Put others before yourself.
  • Don’t be lazy

Now, there’s truth and value in all of these beliefs, but they completely overlook that we also need to take care of ourselves. To nurture ourselves. To do things that make us happy. To laugh and rest and fool around.

And that, when we don’t nurture ourselves, when we don’t fill our own buckets, sooner or later we burn out.

We need to put ourselves on our own lists. To give self nurturing theCopy of Fotolia_44996157_M same value that we do working hard or taking care of others.

One way to do that is to make a date with yourself

  • write “Shopping trip” on your calendar
  • put “meditation” in your date book
  • record your favorite shows

Make a firm commitment, preferably in writing, of what you’re gonna do and when you’re gonna do it to fill your bucket

and then keep that date…

In my 9/24 post (Clearing Your Tools) I talked about how you need to clear unwanted energy from tools and items that you are workingteal aura eyes C with metaphysically. Let’s start with a quick laundry list of different methods.

You can use:

  • Sunlight or moonlight
  • Water
  • Earth
  • Salt
  • Visualization
  • Energy

Which method is best? They all are and none of them are. Each method has it’s strengths  and weaknesses, and which one you chose depends on things like

  • The nature of the item you’re clearing
  • How much time you have
  • and, of course, which techniques you prefer.

I’ll be going into that more in upcoming posts.

See you then

When I was a little girl and I picked up something new, my grandmother would say “Wash that first- you don’t know where it’s been.”

And grandma was right!

teal aura eyes CEverything is made up of energy. The energy of a person, place or item can affect the energy of other things around it by a process called entrainment. In it’s simplest form, entrainment says that, when two items are vibrating, the vibration of one will gradually become affected by the vibration of the other. Since energy is a pattern of vibration, it’s always being affected by the vibrations around it.

So why does that matter? Well, when you buy a new metaphysical tool or crystal, or bring home something you found in nature, please think of my grandmother. That crystal or plant or piece of jewelry? You don’t know where it’s been. You don’t know what kind of energy it may have been exposed to, or what energy it may still be carrying.

That jewelry may have been made by someone who’s really angry at her next door neighbor. That crystal may have been fondled by 20 people with anxiety issues. That beautiful branch may be full of the energy of last week’s torrential downpour.

Bottom line- when you get a new tool, it’s a good idea to cleanse and clear it of left over energy first, before you start using it for any kind of energy work. Just so someone else’s energy doesn’t get caught up in the mix.

More coming on this

We’ve been talking about things that fill your bucket and things that drain it. It’s important to do things to nurture yourself and make you feel good because that raises the level of your energetic field, and that not only feels great but also helps you to attract more positive things, people and experieces into your live and manifest them out of nowhere.

One of the big problems, though, is remembering to do those things to fill that bucket…

There are always people who are more than glad to remind us to do the things that drain and deplete us, but somehow, it’s a lot harder to remember to do things that raise our energy. If you’ve given it some thought, by now you’ve got a list of things that make you feel great and fill that bucket right up, but, for may of us, time races by and somehow those things don’t get done.

You need to build a habit of filling the bucket; and until you have Copy of Fotolia_44996157_Mthat habit, you may need reminders. You might consider:

  • Making an appointment with yourself on your calendar or in your planner
  • Reading through your list of things to fill your bucket every morning
  • Putting cue cards with simple prompts (Read. Smile. Chocolate) in places that you will se them frequently (next to the bathroom mirror. On your computer surround. Taped to your dashboard)
  • Keep out supplies for positive activities in places where you will see them (a lotion that smells good on the sink surround. A book that makes you laugh on your bedside table.)

Think of ways to make those positive activities visible, so you’ll remember to do them everyday

In energy work, our beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, shape our expectations of what we can do and what the world around us will be. More positive beliefs tend to attract a more positive world. And our beliefs are created by the things we’re taught,  both by others and what meaning we put on our experiences.

But what if our beliefs are negative? How do we change them, if they’re hidden away in our unconscious minds?

54f6a620-f2d8-4bdc-ad37-a97aa1a18800One way is affirmations. Just as negative thoughts, repeated over and over, can program us for negative attraction, so repeating positive statements can force negative beliefs out and replace them with beliefs that serve us better
