Bathtime Blogging…today green moodlights with a Guardian of the Forest BathBomb from Lush & listening to motown.

Ponderings of the day are around my work and questions people ask about magick…

Useful dark moon at the moment so this weekend’s been quite busy with reversal spells and similar. But the dark moon isn’t only for those kind of spells…

It’s a good time for magick focused developing psychic or magickal skills. A good time for spells to enhance sensitivity to subtle energy, for deep healing and initiation work.

Most people have some level of ability and certain talents will naturally occur as a person works on their spiritual development – often as a consequence of clearing hindering factors rather than consciously seeking growth. Magick is often more a process of “cutting the crap” – those restrictions and impediments that hold us back, than it is a process of development.  The intention of the person and their level of consciousness is very individual so there are no hard and fast rules. Everyone’s journey of Self-Realisation is unique.

In a very general way, as ego consciousness is replaced (or more accurately, integrated) our capacity for intuition and talents that can manifest as it increases, will grow. And when we accelerate the process consciously, it’s vital to maintain our objective consciousness of we are to truly make any real advances. Self awareness is vital in this process and journalling is a great way to maintain this. It’s considered usual for a mage or witch to keep a “magickal diary” or “Book of Shadows” and that’s not just an archaic tradition but an important tool in conscious development work.

Although we will all have tendencies to natural talents and magickal skills that become more powerful as we take the journey to Self-Realisation, it is possible to enhance them. It’s a case of working to develop the natural skill without creating any imbalance in the energy body. Imbalance is often what restricts attempts for spiritual development. So it’s something that can be assisted but can’t be forced. So you need to understand that you’re assisting a natural process, not trying to artificially harness a “supernatural” one.

One of the main hindering factors in the process of Magick (which is the journey to Self-Realisation) is created when people enter into a phase of “looking for results”…where they are looking for external validation of an internal process and get into a habit of not looking further than that. They msy lose perspective and though they may manifest some skills in (for example) psychic awareness or aura scanning, their energy becomes unbalanced because it’s not properly grounded and the ego is dominant in the consciousness. It may seem you’re making progress but then you hit a wall. And a change in your methods of development is needed.

These are phases that all people go through – they are part of a progressive journey. But at times where unbalanced development occurs, the block it creates can have unwanted side effects on other levels. Sometimes they can be hard to recognise until they are at a harmful level. And the ego tends to try to deny them as if they are a personal flaw.

Most commonly people notice they have developed a tendency to be oversensitive to the negative energies of others and think that’s a sign of their advanced intuition. It’s really not – it’s a sign of being ungrounded. But where ego consciousness has a loud voice, it can be a time where the aspirant really needs to study their motivations if they are to progress.

If an unbalanced energetic state is maintained for a prolonged period, the person may even experience physical health problems from deficient energy in some areas and too much in others. The process of journalling can be very useful in identifying these things. It’s important to take care not to pin all your health experiences (physical, mental, emotional or spiritual) on energy imbalance…sometimes it’s completely the other way round; a physical or emotional problem creating an imbalance on an energetic level. So any issues should be addressed on all levels.

Other symptoms that can manifest if there’s a lack of grounding are tendencies to overeat, over exercise, even to abuse alcohol or drugs – in an attempt to “ground”. Such strategies may even seem to work temporarily but they are not a solution. They will always become a hindering factor. It can mean you seem to take one step forward and two steps back every time you make a conscious effort to “advance” in spiritual or magickal sense. But don’t lose heart! This is a natural part of our development consciously – we learn by our mistakes essentially. But we only learn if we admit there’s a problem and seek a solution.

Understand, you will advance naturally. Growth, progreass and evolution are the natural order of things. Assisting the process isn’t the same as forcing the process before you’re equipped (mentally and emotionally) to do it safely.

There are some yogic techniques criticised for forcing the process and causing problems. Intensive meditation practices can seem to do the same. So keep writing it down. Condensing your experiences and intentions into words is an important tool and can prevent the pitfalls of those actively pursuing the magickal path.

There are a number of magickal and energy healing/meditation options I provide for people who find themselves – they can facilitate development, teach new techniques and assist you in your spiritual goals. It’s a very important part of my practice as both a Mystic and a Witch.

The Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30 Day Ritual Intensive is an important option for releasing you from hindering elements. That’s why reversal workings in general are often useful even as a preliminary preparation for development work. The intensive is like a powerful healing in fact; helping to release you from those things that are impediments to your development. Often these may be attachments you have formed to situations or memories that you’ve actually outgrown but haven’t consciously accepted that so some element keeps you connected to them. Restrictive lifestyle habits or belief patterns can also be a big part of what we perceive as the hurdles that hold us back. As I said, often Magick is a process of “cutting the crap” and that’s why this particular working is so effective and important.

The LightBody Activation Initiation Intensive was designed specifically for rebalancing and allowing a full expression of your psychic skills – it also has a balancing effect and may manifest deep spiritual healing.

Combined with the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal I would recommend the Initiation Intensive as the most comprehensive solution.  But there are other options that can be very useful…

I would recommend anyone serious about the development of psychic or magickal skills to practice daily meditation and journalling as essential to maintain higher consciousness and objectivity. There are number of courses I would recommend for this: The Avalonian Trilogy, Kundalini Reiki and Elemental Pentagram courses are all good options – not just for maintaining balance; conscious actions align you more fully with your intentions and facilitate growth in ways that a passive “wishful thinking” doesn’t. Intention is all important but acting on your intentions resolves problems of inner conflict and makes the process more effective. You can’t get serious about using magick if you don’t want to be serious about your commitment to manifesting your higher will.

If you think a spell is a short cut, it w3ould only ever manifest as a “quick fix” with limited or short lived success, because your consciousness simply wasn’t in alignment with your intention. If you’re at odds with yourself, you pretty much undermine your own progress. So I say again…keep a journal. It’s an indispensable tool in maintaining your perspective.

The ego often makes demands for “power” or “control” that people misinterpret as a “calling”. And very simply, if your “success” or “satisfaction” is centred on the external validation of your intentions, they are not really intentions but base desires or demands originating from the ego. Ultimately they will hold you back – and at the same time may inflate your belief in your own proficiency, importance and sense of “power”. The illusion of ego based definitions is the biggest opponent to your higher will.

If you’re sure you’ve achieved balance and eliminated hindrances and that your intentions are motivated by your higher will, then the Goddess Aradia Tantric Shamanic Ritual with Divinity Assumption can be tailored as a personal initiation. It allows you to be consciously involved in the process of the ritual and to align more fully with your personal and spiritual goals. So it can be used to enhance the talents or skills you have.

The process is simple and available to anyone, whatever their proficiency. It’s also safe and I make the process as accessible as possible for serious seekers.

The Aradia working can even be specifically tailored to increase your ability in divination, energy work or clairvoyance – any expression of those natural skills that manifest as we develop spiritually. But a balanced base allows for a more powerful experience and more profound change. Hence my emphasis on Karmic Reversal. It levels the playing field so change manifests more quickly and fully and permanently.

A process of regular Tantric Shamanic Rituals with Divinity Assumption Channellings can be a great way to work towards your ascension goals.

Energy Healing | Reiki | Holistic Health

This blog is taken from a discussion with a student who has undiagnosed and intermittent stomach pain and has previously assumed this to be an “energy block” and based on that has not pursued any clinical diagnosis.

I always emphasise the importance of taking a holistic view of health and wouldn’t recommend anyone self diagnose with “an energy block” and to seek no further clarification from appropriate professionals.

I teach energy healing & meditation techniques as well as providing magickal solutions (based on karmic reweaving)…these are complementary and not alternatives to medicine, lifestyle choices, diet etc.

A holistic approach means taking on board all aspects of health and diagnosis.  Energy healing isn’t an alternative to medical. And for full health a body needs balance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If you are eating badly, don’t take any exercise, have a stressful lifestyle or habits you know are compromising your health and wellbeing, it’s not reasonable to turn to learning energy healing and meditation as an alternative to resolving problems with practical solutions. No amount of chanting will remove a ruptured appendix…and no one would expect it to. So if you have health problems you really should see a health care professional.

If you wish to use my services magickally or in energy work to progress towards a harmonious state, that’s excellent and exactly what my work is for. But if you think magick can provide a quick fix or meditation can cure all ills while you continue to make choices you know are causing you harm (such as drinking, taking drugs, unhealthy eating or unhealthy habits of lifestyle such as letting your ego dictate your course in life and causing your conscience to blanch at your own behaviour and choices), magick, meditation and energy healing won’t fix it. If you don’t genuinely want to change you won’t change. And although meditation, ritual or energy work may assist you, may increase your self awareness and support you in making progress, they aren’t there to make you magickally transform into something else against your will!

If someone has health problems (physical, mental or emotional), I would not assume to make a diagnosis as I am not qualified to.  So if you’re ignoring something, find out what it is from someone qualified, before you decide for yourself what you think it is and how you think you should treat it!

The student hadn’t contacted me about health problems beforehand…and I don’t think they can have read the Mayastar Study Manuals that accompany the courses I teach otherwise they would have known that my response would be to reiterate what I teach. A genuinely holistic approach…not a bunch of new age fluff bunny nonsense. I think people that do (and I have had to re-teach Reiki to people who received no real guidance or study materials from “Masters” so many times now that I consider the fluff bunny nonsense approach to be both epidemic and dangerous) are causing untold harm and not embracing the holistic view at all.

If you feel the energy healing is exacerbating a condition I would advise not to use it until you have seen a medical professional that can ensure you are safe to do so.

Also, it is important to ensure you have grounded yourself with the grounding meditation before and after each session – and read the Study Manuals fully.

If you have pursued the advice of a medical professional and your digestive problems perisist without an apparent cause, look at other areas of your lifestyle. Maybe seeing a nutritionist would be indicated. If stress causes the problem maybe a different kind of energy work would be more suitable.

If you feel grounding or long term imbalance are a significant component in your work there are options like the Avalonian Trilogy Meditation that can help you balance out and would be suitable for reducing stress.

Also there are ritual options. The healing/grounding effect of the Killing Moon 30 Day Karmic Reversal Ritual can be helpful; it has a very healing and grounding effect and depending on the source of the imbalance may significantly improve it or eliminate it. The same goes for the Light Body Activation Initiation Intensive. These are detailed on the Maya Magickal website (links below).

But I really recommend against considering these options as alternatives or to self diagnose a problem without any professional advice. You could be causing harm to yourself by doing so.

So although any problem could be helped with energy healing or meditation, it could also be exacerbated with the wrong kind of energy or by using techniques incompletely (particularly neglecting to follow the instruction onn grounding!).

Stomach complaints that are ongoing should be seen by a physician. Diary products can exacerbate underlying conditions – or be the cause of them. A lack of exercise can cause problems with digestion. Food allergies or intolerance could be aggravated by stress. But at the same time, persistant problems may indicate a chronic condition that requires medical diagnosis and may be better helped with professional medical care. Your assumption that it is an energy block may be right but unless you see someone qualified to rule out potentially serious conditions such as diverticulitis, hernia or colitis, your self diagnosis could be dangerous.

When we work holistically we don’t assume all problems are due to energy blocks when it’s also possible for a medical, dietary or lifestyle condition to cause similar symptoms. And unchecked a medical condition can result in an energy block – but to treat that it would be advisable to take a holistic view and treat it on all levels. Which includes medical.

It may not be a serious condition or it may be one you can manage without medication too. IBS for example. In that case energy healing and meditation may be very helpful!

To end with an anecdotal point…over the years (decades) I have worked with attunement based energy healing and meditation systems, as my natural “basal vibrational frequency” has shifted, I have noticed I can’t tolerate caffeine very much. I can’t eat meat or sugar or drink alcohol because they have a very grounding effect on me. Something I became aware of as my natural sensitivity increased. I also gave up smoking 9 years ago. And recently gave up dairy as what I had thought was a bit of an intolerance began to cause histamine swelling in my hands (an allergy rather than an intolerance). People’s bodies change over time and often people naturally change their habits based on those changes…but if I hadn’t decided to go vegan I might have irritated my body with more dairy products and ended up with more serious problems.

 

Other anecdotal situations – my mother gave up sugar and her IBS went away (but her hernia required medication and surgery and changing her diet wouldn’t have fixed that! ). I used to get migraines and have hay fever as a child but somehow at some point grew out of them. Whereas my brother grew into getting migraines in his 30s having never had one before. So people’s bodies change and it’s sometimes something you have to learn to manage – my brother made significant lifestyle changes to reduce to risk of migraine.

Additionally, I have temporal lobe epilepsy and I make significant lifestyle based choices to manage it because after discussing with my neurologist he was happy for me to try a drug free route. But over time, my epilepsy may change and I will change with it. (It’s why in so many selfies I’m wearing sunglasses in fact – I am light sensitive and sometimes wear them before bed because I tend to have more as I start to relax otherwise). But I would rather keep sunglasses by my bed than take a chemical preventative medication that has long term side effects. However, it was important I saw my GP about and had scans and tests and got a proper diagnosis before discussing my options with someone who knows about TLE. Because the very same symptoms might have indicated a tumour or a stroke. So it’s very important I think that if you’ve self diagnosed a problem you have had for many years, you see a professional and make sure you’re making choices based on the facts.

I think many people on a spiritual journey find that as they raise their energy, their intolerance to low energy vibes (from food, people, music or habits) becomes highlighted and that’s part of the journey in a way. But that shouldn’t be used as a reason to boycott the facts or (in some cases), our own common sense!

So have a look at the options. Consider your symptoms. Think about your diet and lifestyle to see if they offer up any clues. And speak to a GP for advice. If energy healing doesn’t feel right, perhaps a structured meditation system might suit you better in managing stress for example. But please ensure you seek appropriate professionals…a holistic view means working with the whole x
