The Daily Motivator for Feb. 21 – Thankful for the past

Thankful for the past

You can’t change the past. So there’s no point in continuing to rehash it in  your mind.

Yes, there is much you can learn from the past. Once you’ve learned what  there is to learn, move quickly on.

Though you can’t change the past, you can choose the way you feel about it.  Your best choice is to always feel thankful that your past has brought you to  where you are.

Where you are now is a place and time filled with great possibilities. Choose  the most positive and meaningful of those possibilities, and go with them.

Go into the future with a sincere sense of gratitude and purposeful  intention. Go into the future informed and inspired by the past, but not  burdened by it.

The past has been good to you because it has given you the opportunity of  now. Wisely use that opportunity and make the future even better.

How to Protect Oneself From Psychic Attacks

How to Protect Oneself From Psychic Attacks

By an eHow Contributor
There are several ways to recognize when you are under psychic attack. If you suddenly feel drained of energy or unaccountably depressed, then there’s a good chance that you are under psychic attack. However, it is a good idea to visit a medical doctor first to rule out any medical problems, like anxiety or schizophrenia. There are several things you can do to protect yourself. Read on to find out.

Know When You Are Under Psychic Attack

1  Check your energy level. One of the common symptoms of psychic attacks is the feeling of being drained of energy.

2  Assess your emotional state. Do you feel fearful or anxious for no reason? Do you feel danger? These are also common signs of attack.

3  Take note of any headaches you may be having, as well as the frequency with which they occur.

4  Watch for other symptoms of attack. Other symptoms of psychic attacks include feelings of depression, suicidal thoughts, a cold or tense feeling in the stomach and more.

5  Notice how you feel when you leave the company of people you talk to. If you feel extremely fatigued when you depart, there is a good chance that you were just under attack.

6  Be aware that psychic attacks could come from one person or a group of people. If it is from a group of people you will need help from a professional healer. Visit the “International Association of Reiki Professionals” to find a Reiki energy healer (see Resources below).

Protect Oneself From Psychic Attacks

7  Say a prayer. Address your request for protection to the entity you believe in and believe that you have been heard.

8  Ask for protection from your spirit guides and angels. These light beings help to protect you from negativity.

9  Place a triple layer of cling film over your solar plexus, under your clothes. Your solar plexus is your most volatile area. Cling film helps to repel unwanted energies.

10  Place a protective gemstone on your solar plexus. Several gemstones are said to promote good vibrations, such as black tourmaline. This gemstone is believed to cause energies directed at you to bounce off. Other gemstones include agate, turquoise and jasper.

11  Use natural essences from flowers. The scent from the flowers is said to help promote positive emotions around you.

12  Free oneself from fear. When you are fearful you are more susceptible to psychic attacks. Try meditation, yoga or visualization exercises to help you balance and strengthen your mental and emotional states.

13  Read “Psychic Shield: The Personal Handbook of Psychic Protection” by Caitlin Matthews to learn more about how to protect yourself from psychic attacks.

About Psychic Self Defense

About Psychic Self Defense

 

By Jonae  Fredericks, eHow Contributor

When we think of self defense, we think of the protection of our physical  bodies. But when we speak of psychic self defense, the focus is instead  on the harm another may inflict on our inner self. In short, psychic self  defense can best be defined as your “intuitive protection” against those who  wish to harm your mind or spirit. We all have the ability to transfer negative  energy, and psychic self defense helps to guard against the dark force that  motivates our enemies.

Identification

Our psychic self defense is gifted to us by our higher self. When something  just doesn’t feel right, or you suspect that someone is not being truthful and  cannot be trusted, you are receiving information from another level of your  being. Often ignored, these feelings or “vibes” are your intuition’s way of  telling you that you had better think twice about the situation. This intuition  is your psychic self defense. If heeded more often, you may be less apt to allow  the feelings of guilt, shame, hurt and self doubt that others bestow on you to  infect your mind and affect your  health.

 

Types

The world can be cruel, and psychic attacks can come in many forms. They  often are a result of the thoughts and actions of those in whom we place our  greatest faith and trust. Jealousy and envy in others can create dark emotions,  resulting in destructive behavior and thinking. Unaddressed, these  manifestations can maim and cripple our own sense of well being. Although you  may not at first suspect that a jealous person means to belittle or whittle down  your self esteem, eventually his dark thoughts can be picked up on by your inner  radar. An uneasiness or doubt that begins to arise when you are around this  person, or are thinking of him, is your psychic self defense kicking in. Recognizing it is to your advantage

Theories/Speculation

For those that practice psychic self defense, it is often believed that their  positive auras can counteract psychic attacks. Techniques such as aversion,  which entails forcing your mind to believe only in the positive and  extinguishing all negatives, will weaken any effect that verbal or mental  badgering will have on your psyche. It is also theorized that by developing your  precognitive warning system, you can intercept the harmful effects of psychic  attacks before they have the opportunity to strike. The precognitive warning  system means building up your positive aura through meditation and taking  control of your unconscious mind. By always keeping a clear head and maintaining  a constant awareness, you will project positive energy that will deflect  negative.

Misconceptions

Although the term “psychic” often conjures up thoughts of tarot cards and  fortunes, those associations are a drastic version of the psychic reality. It is  believed that everyone is born with an intuition, which some would say is a form  of psychic ability that can be developed. Taking time to meditate, exercise and  eat a balanced diet will help keep your body and your mind balanced. Being  aware, and listening when that little voice inside of your head speaks to you,  even when logic tells you otherwise, will help keep you safe. You can rely on  your own intuition, especially when it proves over time to be  correct.

Considerations

It is worthwhile to mention that psychic self defense is also a useful form  of protection against the  threats to our mental stability that can manifest in our own psyche. Our own  negative thoughts and worries can cause us to attract the very circumstances  that we fear. The theory of psychic self defense enlists the belief that  replacing worry with positive thoughts will steer the universe in a positive  direction, and finally bring you peace.

Daily OM for February 10th – Perceiving the Infinite

Perceiving the Infinite
Using Your Psychic Gifts

by Madisyn Taylor

People often have difficulty accepting that they have been blessed with psychic abilities.

Psychic experiences are a natural part of our everyday lives. People often have difficulty accepting that they have been blessed with psychic abilities because without a frame of reference it is almost impossible to identify an extrasensory experience and to distinguish psychic sights, sounds, and sensations from the projects of the unconscious mind. To some extent, every human being on the planet is clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient, although most people discover that they are naturally adept at one more than the others. When you trust in and take steps to hone your innate clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience, you will enter a new realm of being in which the universe, your higher self, and your spirit guides lovingly conduct you toward a more aware existence.

Clairvoyance, or clear seeing, is the ability to see with the mind’s eye. An individual who has honed their clairvoyant abilities may be able to see in their mind’s eye events in a remote location; to witness incidents that have yet to occur; or to perceive shapes, colors, and other images that are physically invisible. Clairaudience, which means clear listening, is the ability to hear sounds not physically audible. A person with the gift of clairaudience perceives psychic information as auditory resonance and may hear angelic voices, music, or other sounds. A clairsentient, or clear feeling, individual is able to sense physical, emotional, and spiritual energy in the form of seemingly unearthly scents, touches, and movements. Each of these psychic abilities can manifest themselves within us voluntarily or involuntarily. It is natural for us to have these abilities; we need only practice.

Developing your psychic talents is a matter of releasing your fear of seeing, hearing, or feeling inexplicable or disquieting stimulus. Before you attempt to consciously tap into your gifts, ground yourself to anchor your mind in the present to disconnect from any involuntary psychic experiences you may be having. Concentrate on your intuitive responses to the world around you and notice any sights, sounds, or feelings that enter your mind. If you trust your perceptions, you’ll discover that each psychic impression you receive will be in some way relevant to your experience—even when that relevance may not be immediately recognizable.

Let’s Talk Witch – The Art of Scrying

THE ART OF SCRYING

(L.< scruatari = to look at) is a form of divination which uses crystals, crystal balls, water, fire or other shiny objects of fascination as the focus.

Essentially, the person doing the scrying focuses attention on the tool being used and freeing the mind, allows thoughts, ideas, pictures as a television screen. The size of the picture depended upon the size of the object and like the TV, it had to be tuned in to get the best picture.

Learning to scry can be frightening to the uninitiated. It takes a certain amount of control as well as submission, to get results. What is meant is that when focusing on the tool, you must have your mind free of extraneous things, things that pull your attention away. You must also allow yourself to be open to impressions, and not be distracted with the clouds or vapors that form in the periphery of your vision. Trying to control the situation can interfere with the results, the control should be done before the scrying begins.

There are various tools that can be used. They are as follows:

1- The crystal ball. This is the most popular tool for scrying. The ball can be glass, crystal or plastic. The most common are balls formed from optical quality glass that are ground round and polished to be absolutely clear. The most expensive are those that are ground and polished quartz, amber or other clear material. The third and the least expensive are cast out of acrylic plastic. The plastic one scratches more easily and takes more care, but works non-the-less.

2- The scrying stone. This is a polished crystal that is usually worn around the neck. It is not necessary that the shape be a sphere. Since the shape is less important, a lot of individuality can be shown. The size, shape, color and personal preference produce a large variety of possibilities.

3- The Magic Mirror. This is a sheep of glass that is painted black on the back side. The most common magic mirror is a large clock face that is painted black on the convex side. Scrying is done by using the concave side.

4- The scrying cup. This is an ordinary tea cup that has the inside painted black. For scrying, water is poured into the cup and the person doing the scrying looks into the water.

5- Sometimes an ordinary bowl is used. Water is poured into the bowl and black ink is added to make a black opaque surface.

6- Fire. Some people are drawn into fire, such as a campfire. The red glow of the coals seem to move and dance and play out a fiery scene. The flame of a single candle works really well and can be used for exercise in scrying. More on this later.

Quiz of the Day : What Type of Psychic Are You?

What Type of Psychic are You?

Everyone has four psychic senses, and you can learn to focus on psychic  reception areas to enhance all of your psychic abilities. But as you become more  adept at the process you will find that one or two of your four psychic senses  are dominant–easier and more reliable for you to use.

It is important to know which psychic senses are your best channels for your  intuition. Over time you can rely on them to help you keep your bearings. Find  out which of the four psychic senses are your special gifts, here:

Know Your Psychic Strengths: Four Types

Gut Feeling:  Feelers Psychic feeling is the most  accessible. It is the easiest to open to and to interpret. The hallmarks are  “gut” feelings, and uneasy physical feelings that often give you a sense of  something not being right, or being right.

All people, places, and objects constantly radiate vibrational patterns, and  your physical body is like a large antenna able to register and assimilate their  meaning as inner feelings.

Focal Point:  In the front of the body, from the top of the diaphragm to just  below the naval (the third chakra).

Knowing:  Prophetics The sense of “knowing” is very  fleeting, but once you get the message the awareness of the truth is deep and  unwavering.

Men and women high in psychic knowing function at an accelerated pace. They  are excellent anticipators of problems or difficulties, and they naturally sense  how to be at the right place at the right time. They are innovators with  limitless creativity.

Focal Point: The crown and top of head (seventh chakra). The insight comes  down from the crown into the center of the head to the nerve bundle that  connects the two hemispheres of the brain.

Hearing:  Audients Psychic hearing manifests as words,  phrases, and inner dialogue. You might even hear a song that gives you a  message. Or a warning that comes with words.

People good in psychic hearing can hear when someone is lying to them, and  they are good, uncomplicated and direct initiators.

Focal Point:  Both sides of the head, just above the ears, in the area of the  temporal lobes.

Seeing:  Visionary Seeing messages visually, such as a  date, or someone’s energy field. With your eyes shut, your visual awareness  shifts upward to your forehead.

Visionaries can often “see” when something is not right, and know what is  wrong. They are excellent planners and have a very good sense of time and  space.

Focal Point:  The third eye.

WOTC Extra – Some Ouija Board Do’s & Don’ts

WOTC Extra – Some Ouija Board Do’s & Don’ts

We have all heard many stories about the Ouija board so what do we believe? That’s for you to decide. But we figured we would give you a few pointer’s we have learned in order to help keep you safe from the Ouija board and it’s spirits during your Ouija session.These are the same thing as superstitions only people call them “Ouijastitions”.Weather you are superstitious or not you might want to take some of these precautions while using the board.Its The same thing as “It’s bad luck when a black cat walks across your path”,”Don’t walk under ladder’s”,”If you break a mirror it’s 7 years bad luck”.Only dealing with the Ouija board.

– Never use the Ouija Board when you are in an ill or weakened condition. This can lead to all kinds of trouble and makes the person more vulnerable to possession.(For more on possession…see the next page)

-Often times the spirits contacted through the board create “wins” for the user causing he or she to become more and more dependent on the board. For example, a spirit might tell the truth about a future event to gain the trust of the user. The user begins to consult the board more and more and eventually become addicted,not wanting to do anything but spend time with the spirit. This is known as “Progressive Entrapment”.

– Since there is no way of truly knowing if a spirit is good or evil it is important to keep in mind that the spirits will often use false flattery and lies to gain your confidence. Be careful.

-Always be respectful to the spirits.

-Sometimes an evil spirit will permanently inhabit a board. When this happens no other spirits will be able to communicate though that Ouija Board.

-Beware … if the planchette begins to count down through the letter of the alphabet or the numbers the spirit can escape form the board.

-If the planchette moves to the four corners of the board an evil spirit has been contacted.

-Never use the Ouija in a graveyard or a place where a terrible death has occurred. Playing in these places might cause terrible manifestations.

-Witch Boards are named such because witches once used them to summon demons.

-Avoid playing the Ouija Board alone. This increases your chances of becoming possessed by a spirit or demon.

-Ouija Boards that are not properly disposed of will return to haunt the owner.

-If you Burn the Ouija Board it will scream.

-If you place a silver coin on the board,It is said that no evil spirits can come through.

-Never leave the planchette on the board when you are not using it.

-To properly dispose of the Ouija Board break it into seven pieces,pour holy water on it and bury it.

Maybe all this is just Ouija folklore passed down something like an urban legend but it’s your choice to believe it or not…

-Ouija Boards that are not properly disposed of will rerurn to haunt the owner.

-If you Burn the Ouija Board it will sream.

-If you place a silver coin on the board,It is said that no evil spirits can come through.

-Never leave the planchette on the board when you are not using it.

-To properly dispose of the Ouija Board break it into seven peices,pour holy water on it and bury it.

Maybe all this is just Ouija folklore passed down something like an urban ledgend but it’s your choice to belive it or not..

Let’s Talk Witch – Ouija Boards

Let’s Talk Witch – Ouija Boards

The Ouija board is what many believe can be used to communicate with the spirits of the dead. Although there is no scientific proof to support this belief it should be pointed out it is not a game and many people have suffered many psychological problems. This is not to say that it is purely in the minds of those that have been exposed to Ouija boards as always the power of the mind and its’ capabilities are still as yet unclear when dealing with spititual matters.

The name “ouija” comes from the French and German words for yes, “oui” and “ja.” There are many different types of Ouija Boards all have different layouts and are made from different materials. The board usually consists with the letters of the alphabet, 0-9 in numbers and the words, “Yes” and “No.” The user or users of the board then lightly touch a pointer (sometimes called a planchet) and the pointer moves and spells out the answers to questions asked of it. Usually this pointer is mounted on castors to help it move freely about the board.

They became very popular in the 1960’s being sold in many countries as a board game although they were eventually withdrawn from main shopping outlets because of the stigma that was attached to them by the media.
Some believe that the Ouija offers proof as to life after death. Others, though, believe that the answers to the ouija come from the unconscious mind of one or all of the sitters. In a similar type of way in which Tom Lethbridge argues that dowsing works.

It must be stated that persons of a nervous disposition can be frightened easily when using a ouija board and it is suggested that they should therefore avoid them. It must also be pointed out that there is no scientific proof that they actually work, although there have been many claims over the years. The Ouija board is not a game and should be treated with care, preferably there should be a medium/psychic who has experience present at all times.

The Witches Magick for January 2nd – Second Sight Spell

Second Sight Spell

Goal: To increase psychic abilities.

Items Needed:

Purple candle
Piece of amethyst.

Be careful what you ask for-psychic abilities can be a mixed blessing. If you want to work on expanding yours, go slowly and don’t forget to use protective shields. A good familiar can help ground you while you do psychic work if you ask nicely. This spell was originally published in, “Circle, Coven & Grove: A Year of Magickal Practice,” as “Spell to Open the Inner Eye.”

Perform this spell under the full moon–outside, if possible. Light the candle and hold the amethyst up to your third eye (between your eyebrows and up a bit).

“Moon, moon, burning bright
Help me hone my inner sight
Make my vision clear and true
Show me what I need to do
Whether cards or stones of old
Show me what I need to know
Guide my heart and guide my hand
Help me see and understand.
So Mote It Be.

Try to stay open to any messages you might get through your second sight. Be particularly alert to dreams and portents.
