Posts Tagged ‘Metaphysical Protection’

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…

Another use for Herkimers is warding an area.  Place a Herkimer at each of the Cardinal points, (size does not matter but you DO want them to be of roughly equal size) and cast a tradition appropriate  circle.  The crystals will maintain the energy of the circle.

Herkimer Diamonds are the exception to the American belief that “bigger is better”.  Indeed they seem to work on the concept of ” less is more”. Some of most energetic Herkimers that I have worked with are not much bigger than a wooden match head. This leads to their inclusion in ultra small wards, say no bigger than a cigarette filter, which can be carried in a wallet or used to ward an office or a cubicle .

Earlier this week, we talked about Feng Shui beliefs about plumbing. How in Feng Shui, if the lid is up on the toilet, it can energetically lead to money “going down the drain”…

And, for the gentlemen in the readership, this is not a “woman-wants-the-seat-down” thing. The belief is that water draining out of the house energetically leads to unexpected expenses.

Like

  • car repairs;
  • home repairs;
  • tax bills:

You get the idea.

So, the concept is that, by keeping the lid down when the toilet is not in use, you are blocking that negative energy flow, and cutting down on or eliminating such freak expenditures.

This is called a Feng Shui “cure” – a technique or trick to block negative energy. And it is a good thing.

But, by the by, your toilet is not the only place that water drains out of, right?

No worries – we got some other cures for you….

For drains in sinks (kitchen, bathroom, or, for the ritzy, home bar), one way of blocking the money from going down the drain is to stop the sinks when not draining water. Close the little thing-a-ma-jig…

Or, if that’s too hard to remember (especially when you get up early or crash out very late), you can tie a red ribbon around the drain pipe under the sink for long range protection that doesn’t require remembering to do something on a regular basis.

It’s also a good idea to be sure to turn faucets completely off, and repair any dripping faucets. That not only prevents the energetic drain of cash, but also that drain on the physical plane (do you know how fast your water bill goes up with that tiny little drip?)

So control the energy. Do the cures.

And don’t let your money go down the drain….

(Note – This week’s post is in response to a question I posted last week about how do you apply warding in the workplace.

I’ll bet that there’s more than a few of you reading who could use a bit of protection from the energy in your office….

Catherine)

How do you ward a cubicle ? Easy, as mass means nothing in metaphysics, you  go small.  Just go to the rock shop , get 4  really small Herkimer Diamonds 1/2″ or less and use them.
