Magick to Invoke Options, Opportunity & Freedom | Clearing Stagnation | Removing Restriction | Eliminating Limbo

A combination ritual for a client inspired me to blog about the potential for a Tantric Shamanic Ritual Intensive.

All situations are unique, but this particular intensive would be a useful fit for a variety of options. With TS rituals they can be easily tailored for a perfect fit for the client too.

The Loki TS ritual is relatively new to Maya Magickal, and makes a great start to this intensive by removing blocks on all levels – even helping the client to move past blocks that are rooted in their own limited beliefs or hindering effects of their behaviour.

A blocked situation can feel insurmountable. You may that sense of limbo where you feel bound up. Or feel like all options are beyond you because of internal or external restrictions…fear of success can generate massive scale inertia in some people and magick can provide a catalyst to move beyond it.

This is also useful if you need to uncover the source of (for example), harassment, aggravation, deception or some other external influence that is creating a state of stagnation or limbo. The sense of being in the dark and waiting for something to happen can be debilitating and depressing.

The Loki working, followed by the Heimdall working and finished with the Odin working (which can be tailored for your particular circumstance) can be worked to expose the truth (internally or externally) and then resolve the situation by invoking “Justice by Right”.

The final focus being on achieving a sense justification which puts you back in the driving seat of your life with a greater awareness and renewed confidence.

The Loki ritual was originally created for the purpose of unravelling a stagnant situation.

Chaos is sometimes considered a negative state – but Chaos is a state where change is possible – inevitable in fact; stagnation is a negative state; it blocks change and it can persist and affect many areas of your life as your consciousness conforms more and more to the restrictive view.

So invoking an element of Chaos opens possibilities! It’s very effective. And as with all TS workings, the spell works from the inside out. So change from within and is manifested externally as life falls in with the new perspective. It means the positive effects are cumulative and built on a solid foundation. This is true of all the TS rituals I provide. They are extremely comprehensive.

Magick works in real time but because of the focus of this intensive, I recommend it worked on consecutive Saturdays as the Saturn influence is useful ♡

The Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30 Day Ritual Intensive special offer is still open. I am accomodating as many people as is viable…I can take two more. So the option will be taken down tomorrow night. If I take too many people in a cycle the daily working for all of them could end up tying up hours of each day.

If I work a double KM cycle I do the daily working split into two or even 3, to keep my schedule flexible. The cycle begins on the 12th. But the special offer for both a single working or a triple, ends in 24 hours. Info about the KM www.mayastar.net/special.htm and www.mayamagickal.net/killingmoon.htm

A Bubblebath Blog…written on my phone while I soak and do my best pondering with my pampering!

image

Regular followers of my feeds will know, me and my Teddy Boy spend every evening today. We are both self employed so we organise our schedules that way. We did eventually decide to not see each other Tues and Sat nights cos Sat I have a lot of Spell Work and Wednesday he has a v early start. But this week I have been seeing my sis, he had a funeral and is out with his friends tonight.

Yesterday he had a really long driving job and by the time he got home I was going to bed…so this week has been all over the place! But thoughtful as ever…he picked me up a toy lion on his travels! (He knows me too well eh!?)

image

I am calling him Aslan as that was my first thought and I am a fan of the books…weirdly my sister and I were discussing them recently. And weirder…around Xmas he came over for a joke in a huggybear 70s pimp style really massive faux fur coat. And after I stopped laughing, he realised my aspergirl brain hadn’t got the joke as it was intended (some jokes are extra funny if you share them with someone with aspergers – we hear horses and we’re as likely to think unicorns, zebras, coconuts all at once, as we are to think horses!).

So when he asked why I was laughing…I said “erm…are we going to Narnia”, “you’re a 1950s transsexual”…”a pimp”…”a gangsta”…and various outlandish guesses which seemed to make it even funnier.

So as soon as I saw the lion, C. S. Lewis came to mind.

But I looked up the symbolism associated w/ lions. From the Sphinx to Richard The LionHeart”. On my mind also was the fact that leo is my rising sign and my dad was a leo. The fact that the lion is called the king of the jungle & everyone calls Spider Elvis who was aka The King.

It seemed a very meaningful list of associations somehow. But Aslan had been my first thought so I did some research…ok…I looked on Wikipedia! And did you know, Aslan isn’t just a made up name? It’s Turkish for lion.

Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia is the allegorical Christ. I have always enjoyed them because of their more natural and almost pagan expression of Jesus in this way which is more in keeping with my personal beliefs.

My favourite quote comes from the Lion, the Witch & The Wardrobe, where Mister Beaver informs Peter that “of course he isn’t safe…but he is good”. I have a strong belief personally in the purity of true wildness…uncorrupted. It may imply “unsafe” to some but for me it definitely emphasises the natural, uncompromising nature. And I find that very inspirational. I believe people are wild at heart…that our apparent domestication is superficial in many ways. But that the soul is wild, beautiful and therefore “good” in it purity.

I am not a Christian myself…and ideas of heaven and hell remind me that if we choose to deny our true nature, we may become restricted and damaged in ways that don’t condemn us to a hellish eternity, but which make it harder for the soul to aspire to its connection with “God”. God is such a loaded word, I tend to refer to “it” as Mother Father God, The Oneness, The Wholeness or (more poetically) The Power That Moves the Universe.

My main work, through Mayastar and Maya Magickal is the expression of my intention to help people remember that connection to Wholeness…not through religion…but through personal practices that form part of their individual path.

So…in my world, even a soft toy lion can remind me of what I believe and inspire me to share it…hoping others may find inspiration too!

Vid from Anonymous: A message to humanity

https://youtu.be/xM1gXr2Hn4Q

From “The Great Dictator”

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, let us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite! Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah! The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light! We are coming into a new world; a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed, and brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow! Into the light of hope, into the future! The glorious future, that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up!”

I love… | Decorating | Being a Hippie | All Things Pink | Vegan Nutcutlets | Lana Del Rey | Laughing | Celebrating with Elvis

image

I love…being the only PreRaphaelite Fairy Princess going steady with the only Teddy Boy in the neighbourhood. Happy birthday to Elvis for midnight! Planning to celebrate with some well earned rest…if I can make him take a little break from painting. The office is coming on with a serious case of being pink as the decorating continues – see pix…going seriously vibrant with the transformation!  Hall and the living room will be darker (purple and a deeper pink). The hallway will be done at the same time because it will be either dark pink or purple. Very dramatic!

Loves of the day are: Lush Cosmetics, bubbleBath, Lana Del Rey, lemon water, Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs & vegan nut cutlets, foot massages, being a girlie hippie (bobo princess) & hanging out with my bf.

Also love the silly banter we break into when we’re doing DIY together. Usually starting with someone making a MightyBoosh quote: “Do I look like a reasonable man? Or a peppermint nightmare?” – starts a stream of messing about that ended up with me rolling on the floor in hysterics while he tried to pull my pants down and paint by bum blue!

He’s funny…silly…but damn kind and really thoughtful. So I’m dying to celebrate his birthday. I got him some great presents…and I can’t wait to see his face light up.

Better have a bath…he’ll be home soon ♡♡♡ Yay!

Happy days hipsters! Stay free; keep smiling;  be nice to each other; & ShareTheLove

If you really want to live…remember what you’d die for, and live for it! | Freedom | Death | Cancer | Reiki | & Love

image

I love…days where my bathwater matches my swallow tattoo!

Designed by my sister and worn by all my family on T shirts & jewellery & ink by family & friends close to my dad. A united front…facing terminal cancer with him.

Despite the chemo & radiotherapy, the tumour grew so fast his symptoms progressed v quickly.

Dad had a bone cancer ten years ago; and though the brain tumour wasn’t related, dad had lived every day like it was a gift.

And I think this summer, he kind of taught us all to do the same. We all miss him…but if there’s a silver lining, facing the journey into terminal illness…it was challenging of course…painful…but we will all remember the good stuff.

In the words of Mike Skinner of The Streets “You left me behind to remind me of you” ❤

He slipped into a coma and died peacefully at home and we were there with him to care for him right to the end. I spent the summer dancing in his garden when he was getting weaker…so we had quite a laugh (including our obligatory 'swallow spotting'…something me and dad always did).

If you really want to live…remember what you'd die for, and live for it!

The swallow tatt is has been adopted by a lot of cancer patients – lifer patients like dad as well as survivors as a symbol of freedom…we all have our demons and being able to live without fear of them is when we truly know what freedom is.

I have a number of students that face similar situations…and they learn Reiki from me. "Healing" someone who is dying? Yes. It's entirely appropriate. Reiki provides healing on many levels and may help with symptoms and mood. Death is a natural process…but it's one we tend to detach from these days. Considering it something that happens anonymously in a clinical setting and something that doesn't involve us. But once it was something we would have experienced personally at a younger age and caring for someone you love right to the end is natural. You don't stop washing them or making them comfortable because you think "this one's a goner". No…you administrator care and support right to the end because you love them way beyond life! And sharing Reiki or healing with someone who is dying…even in those last days…it's a natural thing to do ❤

Don’t let anyone feel less than you are | Red flags of abuse | Be true to yourself ♡

image

…but one day you’ll realise that you needed them like a hole in the head and you came away thinking you felt crap…but realising you still had integrity. And you will love again. They weren’t capable of it with someone who trusted them…they lost a lot when they lost you.

Never let anyone feel less than you are. Never. If they don’t make you feel fantastic and encourage you in your life and your work and pursuit of your hobbies…if you’re in a relationship where someone resents you for your success…please recognise this is a red flag. Not all narcissists are easy to spot. Covert narcissism fuels the ‘forever victim’ and ‘forever unlucky’ and weirdly negative in ways that seem nonsensical in otherwise apparently ‘normal’ people. Abuse of trust is still abuse.

Seriously friends. Live for love. Don’t settle for less. You’re not worth less. You’re worth the fairytale ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ALM (Maya)
