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.
Till next time.

Your home is your castle, and, just as it’s wise to energetically shield your personal energy field, it’s also a good idea to protect your home from possible negative influences. Wards are items and techniques that you can use to set firm energetic boundaries around your home, office or other personal areas to keep good energy in, keep negative or uninvited energy out, and make your space truly your space.

Starwolf”s class includes a wide variety of options and has something for everyone, whether you’re just starting out or have some experience in warding.Come learn some useful skills that you can use right away.

I’m a pretty sensitive psychic and empath. I can tell you from experience that there’s a noticable positive difference between an unwarded area and one that’s been properly warded. Being constantly exposed to every type of energy that happens by can be stressful, exhausting, and have a negative effect on your health and well-being. For the metaphysically aware, wards can make a personal area that is clear of these outside energies, and that’s really positive and supportive.

You’ll be relieved from all of those energies  pounding on you. You’ll feel better. And that’s a great thing.

If you don’t know how to ward, you need to learn. And you can learn here.

And if you do know about warding, Starwolf may have some new twists that you haven’t run across yet….

Starwolf’s class on warding will take place on August 14, this Saturday from 3-5 at Talisman (www.talismanct.com )  in Monroe, Ct. At $20, it’s quite a bargain. If this is the class for you, call 203-261-0047  to claim your seat.

     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

     Do you need metaphysical protection? Why? Against what? How much?…

     Just like in regular life, how much protection you need is largely shaped by the nature of the world around you. In the regular world, if you chose to visit more edgy places, you may need increased regular protection ( a police whistle; martial arts skills; a big dog ; a bigger boyfriend…).

     Also in regular life, if you’re going edgy places and acting like you’re expecting to be mugged or acting like you expect people to be unfriendly, you’re increasing the odds that what you’re calling to will likely happen.

     This is partly body language/ attitude/etc but partially energetic.

     In the metaphysical world, there are also good neighborhoods and bad ones; and good folks and not-so-good ones.

     If you tend to hang in the edgier parts of Mystery, your risk is greater. Likewise, if you’re putting out energy that the Universe is a contantly dangerous place or that “things” are out to get you, you do tend to shape reality so it’s more likely such things will happen.

     The Law of Attraction says that what we focus on, we tend to get. Look for the storm clouds, you tend to get wet. Look for the silver lining, you tend to get sunnier weather…

     From my observations, that tends to be true. I have friends who are cock-eyed optimists and cranky pessimists and everything in between. When I started paying attention, I noticed that the optimists did seem to have a higher incidence of positive serendipity and handled such temporary dips as befell with style and panache. The pessimists actually had more “freak” accidents and pratfalls. Statisically, it looked like personal expectations had a causative effect…

     Interesting, that.

     Now there are some folks who’ll say this means that everything in your life (warts, true love, headcheese, lottery wins) is there because you chose it and drew it there.

     I don’t go that far. But I do think your expectations and intentions about the world can stack the deck for or against you, and I’d rather tip the odds in my favor….

     Now, how does that lead into metaphysical protection? Just this- that your intention can shape the kind of world you find yourself in, and therefore , how much protection you need..

     (Here she goes with intention again!…)

     I don’t believe that, if you believe it’s “an always Friendly Universe!…” , you’ll never run into trouble.

     I do believe that, if you believe it’s a mostly friendly Universe, but there’s sometimes a spot of trouble (so you take prudent precautions), you’ll draw less predators and bullies, attract less problems and challenges, and have a smoother ride overall on the highway of life.

     And I do believe that, if you go looking for trouble, you’re more likely to find it…

     So before setting up psychic alarms, energetic shields, totemic watchdogs, or metaphysical defense sytems, I’d say the first step is to set a good intent:

  • Intend that you’ll put out good energy and see good energy returned;
  • Intend that the places you go and the folks you approach will be positive, friendly, supportive and safe for you;
  • Intend that you’ll make wise choices that give you great results;
  • Intend that you’ll be prepared for problems but not go looking for them;
  • Intend that divine protection is there for you when you ask;
  • Intend that you are given what you need to walk humbly and safely in the Mystery:…

     You get the idea…

     After your intention’s set, you can add other protections as and if you need it.

     But a good intention of protection is a great foundation to build on.

     There’ll be more posts on protection in the future.
