The weather is eccentric, but we’re gradually heading back into the warmer part of the 577442_3521710873755_1617833526_nyear, and in a little bit over two weeks, the psychics of Foresight will be back in the field again.

Join us on April 23 from 10 -6 at the Connecticut Pagan Pride’s Beltaine event at the VFW at 152 Massirio Drive in Berlin , Connecticut. It’s a day of education, networking, entertainment and fun, and admission is only $1.

There are lots of classes at this event, including Starwolf teaching Warding (something everyone should know how to do.) There’ll be lots of vendors, including the psychics of Foresight doing readings and Reiki and selling my books. There are collections of non-perishable food items and pet supplies for local charities; and there are other interesting activities as well.

And we hope to see you in two weeks at Connecticut Pagan Pride’s Beltaine celebration.

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

Metaphysical Protection- an Overview

Metaphysical Protection- The Power of Intention

Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields

Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields 2

Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields an Upgrade

Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields for Empaths

Metaphysical Protection-Energetic Shields for Empaths (a Tweaking List)

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.

Practice safe hex

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…

This weekend, the psychics of Foresight are taking some time off to watch some TV marathons, read some books and write some too. (Catherine’s on a roll!)

Next weekend, we’re back in the field again, and ready to read for you!

September 8 is this year’s Connecticut Pagan Pride Day, from 10-6 at the VFW in Berlin Ct. Pagan pride days are held throughout the country as a way for pagans to come together and for non-pagans to learn more about people who follow these special spiritual paths.

There’ll be lots of great vendors there and interesting classes, as well as a group ritual at 1 pm that everyone is welcome to attend. There are collections being taken of supplies for food pantries, the Connecticut Humane Society and pagans in our military (check the website for a list of items that are needed).

Foresight will be there, doing readings and selling Cathy’s books, including her new urban fantasy novel “The Lands That Lie Between”. Starwolf will be one of the day’s teachers and will be teaching a class on “Practical Grounding and Centering” at 10:30.

Want to meet some nice pagan folk, have some fun and learn something? Then look for more details at Connecticut Pagan Pride or on Facebook at Connecticut Pagan Pride/Face Book

Then grab a canned good or a donation for the humane society and join us at Connecticut Pagan Pride Day on Sept 8

In metaphysics, the term “grounding” can be used for a number of things. It can mean releasing or “grounding out” negative energy, whether it’s energy you’ve picked up from someone or someplace else, or negative energy that you’ve created for yourself. It can also mean “grounding” yourself by stregthening your energetic connection with the physical plane.
 
If you’re energetically sensitive, or if you work with energy (using magick, metaphysics, alternative health practices or other means), it’s important for you to know about both kinds of grounding.
 
We’ve talked a lot about grounding on this blog, and I’d like to give you another way to learn about this.
 
On August 11, 2011,  it was my pleasure to appear on Lexi Doyle’s podcast, Cauldron of Knowledge, on www.LiveParanormal.com  for a special two hour show. The topic was grounding, both grounding out negative energy and grounding yourself in the physical plane

Happy listening

Back on June 9, 2011, Starwolf made an appearance on Lexi Doyle’s podcast , Cauldron of Knowledge,  on www.LiveParanormal.com . The topic was Warding – how you can protect your space, whether your living space or work space, from negative energy and influences.
 
If you’re energetically sensitive or if you work with energy, whether through magick, metaphysics, alternative health practices or other methods, warding is something that you should know about.

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?…
