The summertime’s not over yet, and we’ve still got time.

Time for traveling…

Time for meeting interesting people…

Time for trying new and different things…

And Foresight has another great event for you!

On August 28, at the VFW at 152 Massirio Dr, Berlin, Ct, it’s the 2010 Connecticut Pagan Pride Day!

They’ll have classes  and other events. (Catherine will be teaching “Symbols in Magick”  and an exercise in collaborative storytelling  in regards to the Oral tradition).

There’ll be lots of fine vendors ( including the psychics of Foresight).

And instead of admission, they’re asking for donations of:

  • non-perishable food for the local food bank;
  • blankets, towels, pet food or toys for the Connecticut Humane Society;
  • new or gently used pagan items for soldiers stationed overseas (no candles or items with open flames, please);

So this is another chance to make the world better, learn interesting things, meet new people and have fun all at the same time and place. And how enlightened is that?

If you want more information, please check out www.facebook.com/pages/Connecticut-Pagan-Pride/110582388967451?ref=ts

And come see us at Connecticut Pagan Pride day

     We’ve defined scrying. We’ve gone over some of the tools you can use to scry. We’ve reviewed ways to prepare to scry to make it easier to suceed.

     Now it’s time to scry…

     You can start by setting an intention for your scrying. If you’re not familiar with setting intentions, this is basically forming a goal (such as ” I will see something that gives me useful information.” or ” I will see something about my financial situation.”) and holding it firmly in mind as you scry. An intention can be general or specific. Having an intention helps to support your own natural intuition.

     Look at your reflective item. I like to look and then “soften my gaze” so what I see is in softer focus or slightly blurry. It may be helpful to look “past the surface” of the object, in the same way you use your eyes when looking at three dimensional pictures.

     Hold your gaze steady with the intention that the visions will come. They may come as literal visual input or as things that aren’t truly visual but feel like it, seeing with your spirit as opposed to your eyes (that sounds very complex, but if it happens to you, you’ll recognize it.)

     Some folks see visions right away. Some may need longer or multiple sessions before they start picking up on this. People who are primarily visual in their learning style usually find this easier, but most folks can develop the ability to scry with practice. (The degree to which you can trust your own intuition can also affect this significantly.)

     Once you’re having visions, note the images you’re receiving. The knowledge they give you can be literal (ex:tripping on the stairs tommorrow) or symbolic (ex: a Noble Knight on a proud charger symbolizing True Love coming into your life). I’ll be talking about interpreting symbols in another post.

     Rinse and repeat. Like most things, the more you practice this, the better you’ll get at it.
