Another way to clear your tools of unwanted energy is to use water. Water works well from a number of reasons.

  • It’s one of the four elements.
  • It’s fluid and  flexible.
  • It’s powerful (given long enough, a drip of water can wear away rock.)
  • And, when we think of cleaning, we tend to think of water, and that symbolic link makes it good for energetic cleansing as well.teal aura eyes C

There are a number of ways to use water to clear a tool energetically. Two of the better ones are

  • You can put it in a container filled with water to soak, setting the intention that the unwanted energy will release into the water and you can discard it later, or
  • You can hold the object under running water, setting the intention that the unwanted energy will be washed away and return to the earth to be transformed into something beneficial.

It’s important to note that some items can be damaged by water

  • Some crystals are soluble and can dissolve in water
  • Some other items, such as ones made of paper, may dissolve

If there’s any question whether a tool might by damaged by water, you would want to use a different method for clearing its energy

More ways to clear tools are coming…

Last week, I did a post ( Magick and Movies and TV , oh My!) about someone we heard from who wanted to experiment with metaphysics, didn’t really know a lot about what she was doing, and tried some things without taking any basic safety precautions to increase the odds of getting what she wanted  as opposed to a dramatic “Kids, don’t try this at home” experience

Yep. It’s been that kind of week

We’ve consulted with her, the problems that resulted seem to be resolved for the most part, we’ve advised her to get better information and to take safety precautions if she tries to do something else, and we hope that she’ll take that advice.

Now, part of the problem seemed to be that she got a lot of he information on metaphysics from the popular media. Movies, tv, anime, etc.

Now it is possible to learn worthwhile information from such sources, but you’ve got to remember that the job of the movies and tv is to tell a compelling story, as opposed to educate you. This means that, if they have to chose between giving you useful and accurate information or telling you something that will build excitement and drama, most of them will choose excitement and drama every time

And this means that crucial information may be altered or left out, because an episode where every one is safe and happy and remains safe and happy for the length of the story makes for a very dull story indeed

(one example I tend to think of is a series where, every week, there was one or more demons teleporting into a witch’s home, like she had some kind of infernal revolving door installed. Now

a) a knowledgeable witch would ward her home, so not every Tom, Dick or demon could drop in for a snack, and

b) it’s not always demons. The show used demons because demons are more dramatic)

Towards the end of last week’s post, I mentioned that you should

a) know what you’re doing, and
b) wear the protective gear (ie, ward and take other steps to protect yourself against negative experiences)

The best sources on this are mentors, teachers and classes from folks who know what they’re talking about, but we do have some posts on this blog that may also be of service

Here’s a post on the basics on how to ward (A Basic Warding)

And here’s some other posts on the basics in metaphysical protection

That should be enough to get you started and I hope to add to the collection of posts on this topic in the future

The world of metaphysics is not all scary and negative, but, just like the physical world, there are some bad things out there, just as there are some good things

Let’s have fun, but let’s stay safe out there.

Got a call a few weeks ago from  someone we’d met who was going through a metaphysical crisis.

Well, she was…and she wasn’t….

As we talked her through things, it became more and more clear that:

  • she didn’t really have a lot of practical and accurate information about metaphysics
  • she had placed an open demand for action from the unseen cosmos without specifying who or where that action should come from
  • she hadn’t taken any precautions to protect herself while she did so
  • she evidently didn’t know as much about metaphysics as she thought she did. Indeed, as we gradually sorted out the details, it became pretty clear that most of her metaphysical knowledge came from TV and the movies

And now she was having negative consequences, and, since most of her metaphysical knowledge came from TV and the movies, she was putting the worst possible interpretation on things (it must be demons, right?) and she wasn’t having much success in resolving the problems that she had invited into her life

Sigh.

Well we helped her sort things out. We hope that she’ll take our advice and get some more accurate knowledge from  a teacher or good non-fiction metaphysical books, so she won’t have these kinds of problems in the future; but this brings up a few points that I wanted to share with you all.

  • If you want to work in metaphysical fields, make sure that 54f6a620-f2d8-4bdc-ad37-a97aa1a18800you know what you’re doing first
  • Keep in mind that the primary goals of fiction and Tv and movies is to entertain you, not to educate you- and to do that, they’re going to do whatever it takes to tell a compelling story, even if they’re inaccurate.  (Demons are exciting. Nasty prankish spirits not so much so) You can learn things from the media but always check them with a reliable source so you’re not misled by the drama.
  • Just like extreme sports, always wear the safety equipment. If you’re doing something unfamiliar, ward, call your guardian spirits, set an intention for only positive contacts or do whatever you can to keep yourself safe. Don’t stand in the middle of the unseen world and shout “Come and get me! I’m tasty!”

Explore but keep yourself safe out there. Practice safe hex…

Want to find your way to enlightenment by getting a little lost first?

If you’d like to try a different kind of meditation, one cross cultural tool for meditation and contemplation is a labyrinth.

While the dictionary defines a labyrinth as “a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one’s way; a maze”, a true labyrinth consists of a single path that winds back and forth but eventually takes you to single central location (as opposed to a maze, which offers multiple paths and dead ends)

Walking a labyrinth can be helpful for meditation, introspection, problem solving or even getting in touch with your creative side

and there are many labyrinths all over the world.

Want to find one?

Deck them halls and hang that holly.  We’ve looked at some gift ideas  from the worlds of alternative health. 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…

…then try walking a labyrinth.

Labyrinths have been found throughout many countries and cultures throughout history. They’re a part of many different spiritual paths.

Walking the labyrinth is a kind of moving meditation. People have used it for such purposes as finding their centers, calming stress, healing, accessing insight and making contact with the Divine.

There are many famous labyrinths throughout the world, but you can also find labyrinths in more obscure settings as well. There’s probably a labyrinth near you and many are open to the public.

Want to find a labyrinth to walk? Try here for where you can find them and for more information about labyrinths in general.

Last call – tonight (11/7/12), I’ll be  appearing from 8-9 on the New Normal with Tchipakkan on http://liveparanormal.com

I’m back tonight with even more information about manifestation magick and attracting better things into your life. In particular, we’ll be talking about the little manifestation techniques, which are are quick to learn, simple to use, easy to incorporate into your life and less likely to stir up resistance which can stop you from creating the reality you want.

My new book “Manifesting Something Better” is all about these little manifestation techniques. I’ll be talking about how these work and about some interesting experiences that I’ve been having with manifestation while I wrote this book, as well as taking questions about manifestation work from listeners.

Manifestation work is practical. And it’s something  that you can learn to do yourself.

Want to catch my interview, call in with questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

If you just want to listen, you can go to the above site, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.

If you want to chat, you’ll need to go to the top of the home page on the extreme right and click “Join” to set up a personal account (it’s free but takes a few moments, so you might want to do this in advance)

There are provisions for listeners to phone in with questions, too.

And, if you can’t tune in at that time, Live Paranormal.com archives its shows for your listening at a time convenient to you.

Hope you can join me tonight from 8-9 at the New Normal on liveparanormal.com
