Friday Ramble Wild Grace

Friday Ramble Wild Grace
"The word for this week is grace, and it is one which pops up frequently in English language usage - perhaps more frequently in Romance languages such as French, Italian and Spanish. It comes to us from the Latin gratia", thence from "gratus" meaning pleasing or thankful. We use grace as a name for a beloved female child, in our deepest and most heartfelt prayers and meditations, to describe someone who is pleasing to the eye, or who is poetry in their motion.

Wendell Berry wrote of the indwelling balance, harmony and grandeur of the natural order as being "the grace of the world", and grace is present in every perfect word Mary Oliver writes. One of my favorite authors of urban fantasy, Charles de Lint, once described the great mystery at the heart of existence as simply "the Grace". No other word can ever begin to delineate the wonder of the perfect round world in which we breathe and dwell and wander all our days - the fertile ground underneath our feet, the water, rocks and trees around us, the radiant moon and oceans of dancing stars above us on a fine summer night, the company of good companions on this, our earthly journey.

I cannot claim to be graceful in my movements, lurching and fumbling along life's trail with an expression thoughtful, astonished and dazzled by turns. There is no poetry in motion here, and hiking boots, runners, sandals and "wellies" are more my style than ballet slippers - it would be deceitful to lay claim to any graceful movement whatsoever. Nevertheless, there is grace in this old life, and it is boundless grace of the most elemental and natural kind - the wild grace dwelling at the heart of life of which so many poets and authors have written eloquently.

Without saying the word aloud or even thinking it, what I am seeking in my slow rambles around the beaver pond or deep in the woods is a whisper, a mere hint of the world's indwelling grace, a fleeting glimpse into the perfect untroubled heart of things. Grace resides in new leaves, wild waters and old trees, in the stately movement of herons, the iridescent flash of bluebirds' plumage, the sundown songs of loons. When I encounter such grace, I breathe deeply and easily, and no matter what the troubles the earlier hours of the day have held, they vanish.

Wordplay Epicure

Wordplay Epicure
As is well-known, the word epicure comes from the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus (341 - 270 BC), now fairly synonymous with the word 'gourmet', although there is a more pejorative sense of an addiction to sensual enjoyment, particularly in earlier usage. It is perhaps less well-known that both of these usages have their roots in anti-Epicurean propaganda, an ancient determination to discredit, suppress and distort a powerful and remarkably modern philosophy.

Almost all of what Epicurus wrote is now lost, but we have enough fragments and references to form a pretty good idea of his philosophy. Ironically, Epicurus himself was something of an ascetic who ate frugally, drank mainly water and valued friendship above worldly goods and desires. He taught that our ultimate aims in life should be to live without anxiety, to cultivate friendship and ignore the gods, for he argued that the gods cannot conceivably be affected by what we do and therefore cannot possibly have any interest in us. He also taught that atoms are the fundamental, indivisible building blocks of the universe, that what we see around us is made of combinations of atoms and that there must be an infinite number of worlds, not merely the one we humans happen to live on.

The suppression and distortion of Epicurus' teachings is one of the great philosophical tragedies, probably accounted for by what he said about the practical irrelevance of the gods. Our use of the word 'epicure' is a reminder of our loss.

Psychic Self Defense

Psychic Self Defense

PSYCHIC POWER:

Every thought, emotion, desire or action is Karma. Each of these has a

vibration of its own. Every vibration has an effect, every action has a reaction.

We may not realize it but every thought, dream or feeling that we project knowingly or unknowingly has an effect in the world and creates our future. This means we all carry a lot of psychic power within us.

Psychic power comes with a responsibility too. We are all

interconnected in the matrix of life and whatever we project comes

back us sooner or later to teach us the lesson of love and compassion.

PSYCHIC AWARENESS:


Not everyone who has psychic power has been aware of their power. Many times we have sent anger, envy, hate towards others without even realizing that it is having a potential to harm others and us (if something could harms another it harms us as well).

We may have said - "Go to hell" or "get Lost" for example in a fit of anger and it is a negative energy that returns to the sender. When you were talking negatively to someone or yourself about life, the world, any happenings, relationships, etcit was also creating negative energy for the listener and yourself. We all are to constantly work on modifying such behaviors and adopting a more affirmative life.

PSYCHIC ATTACK:

There are also people who have been aware of their psychic power and know how to send highly focused vibrations. They may not have been doing this in a responsible way and may harm others intentionally thereby harming themselves too (if not sooner than later and with interest - the harm sent comes back multiple times to the sender until they learn the lesson).

This is what happens in a psychic attack. Some people who suffered from lack of full knowledge and were ignorant of the importance of magickal ethics were low on the responsibility part and used their third-eye or psychic power wrongly.

PSYCHIC RESPONSIBILITY:


We all are responsible to think pleasant thoughts and feel positive

emotions, to desire good things and to indulge in ethical behavior and

actions - towards ourselves and others. This is psychic responsibility

and people who had sent psychic attacks or negative vibrations to

themselves or others knowingly or unknowingly may have been less spiritually aware of the law of karma and about psychic responsibility due to lack of inner wisdom and absence of proper magickal and spiritual training and guidance.

Thankfully cutting edge magickal training and spiritual guidance is now available and is being accessed by many so we are becoming both psychically and spiritually aware of our psychic responsibility and ethics and people are learning how to be more positive and loving.

THE WICCAN REDE:


"Harm None Do as You Will" is a beautiful code of ethics that is

followed by many today as Wicca gains prominence as a religion and a

coherent spiritual system for enlightened masters. (More on www.globalwicca.com)

How to Know if you are under a Psychic Attack:

* You may have felt irritable, angry or unhappy without reason and prone to say or do something that harms you, your relationships or your life

* You may have found object breaking eg. glass, crystals, photoframes, etc, especially things that were significant to you

* You may have suddenly fallen ill without known cause


* You may have found that bad luck chased you suddenly, eg: you became accident prone, stumbled more, ran into losses or trouble for seemingly no specific reason

* More severe symptoms have sometimes been observed


* In case the person's mind was possessed by the negative attachment or energy, the individual may have refused to accept healing or be in a state of denial as well

* You may have recieved visions, intuitions and dreams that indicated psychic attack.

* Basically you may not have been the direct cause of these but a victim of a psychic attack.

* The best way to confirm is through divination (eg tarot cards) through the help of a reputed psychic expert.

WHO IS VULNERABLE


All that happens to us is a result of our inner world, Our subconscious beliefs, thoughts, emotions and desires become real. Even a psychic attack is somehow linked to your fears and insecurities as the universe is within us.

All of us have a little vulnerable child within who is innocent and needs to feel safe and this also makes us vulnerable. Even if we are powerful spiritual masters we need to constantly amplify our positive energy and keep ourselves strong.

Magick is not a one time thing but a constant way of life.

Some new age experts talk a lot about creating positive energy without giving due focus on cleansing, repelling and transforming negative. Its like wearing fresh clothes and perfume without taking a bath. Banishing negative is equally important.

HOW TO PREVENT AND HANDLE A PSYCHIC ATTACK

- PSYCHIC SHIELDING: This works best if you have learn energy healing

methods. Just visualize a shield around you in the beginning of the

day and at night before sleeping and again whenever you need it

through the day or night. This can be a sphere of blue or white light

in its simplest form.

- CRYSTALS: Hematite is known to shield you psychially. Wear or carry

hematite in the form of ring or pendant for example. It can also

absorb a strong psychic attack and break thereby warning you and

protecting you else the energy may have hurt your life instead.

Tiger's eye is a good reflective crystal and good against negative

energies. So is cat's eye. Tourmaline is absorbent and helps protect

you to an extent. Other crystals are garnet, amethyst, sugilite (a

powerful crystal related to Archangel Michael
).

- HERBS: Sage, Angelica, Hyssop, Witches grass, Rue, Sulfur, and many

others can be used in spells, potions, oils and herb form.

- TALISMANS,YANTRAS AND AMULETS: The pentacle and the star of David are popular talismans for protection. There are several others too

from various cultures that are magically powerful. The evil eye from

turkish culture is one way of preventing jealous energies.

- ANGELS, GODS AND GODDESSES: Being in touch with your higher self

that can take the form of angels, gods and goddesses is a good idea.

"- MEDITATION, SPELLS, MAGICKAL SKILLS, ENERGY HEALING AND GROUNDING:"

Meditative techniques, spells, magick and energy skills are a

must-learn for all of us and should be taught since childhood. Spells

are some of the more powerful ways to prevent, repel and reverse

psychic harm. Grounding for example is a way of releasing negativity

and converting it to positive energy. There are candle burning spells

and rituals and several other advanced methods that need to be learned

or followed under professional guidance.

A CASE STUDY OF A PSYCHIC ATTACK:

I have been using Hematite rings for quite some time now and havefound they usually do not break unless they absorb negative energy. Last year for a small period of time they broke continuously though I kept replacing them. It was brilliant that some of them broke spontaneously

without any externally visible force.I also used tiger's eye in angel and pendant form to provide additional protection and these too broke almost immediately - an indication of a strong psychic attack.When we start working with energy things become even more clear to us.

I performed a divination and also recieved psychic messages of who the attacker was and found that there were more than one. It is important that we do not return a psychic attack with an attack. Harm in return of harm can only spoil things further. I focused on sending healing vibrations to myself and others.

I found the reason for this was the emotional insecurity of

the senders of this psychic attack whose negative belief systems were

creating this type of energy for me and a friend of mine.

I also did chakra-meditations and spells to heal the negative and

convert it to positive, for example a binding spell to prevent the

person who is trying to harm you from harming you further.

I also performed a spell to reverse the negative effects of the attack

from my past.

If the person who attacked you tries this again as I found out in this

case we need to give further healing. Recently I found that this

individual once again tried to send a psychic attack to me creating

ripples of confusion and misunderstanding between me and a significant

other for which I had to perform a ritual cord cutting and banishing.

It is necessary to cut the cords between you and the attacker so that

the same scenario can be prevented in future and to send blessings and

healing to all concerned including the sender of the psychic attack so

we all become more positive and less prone to negativity.

Thankfully I know many spells to repel and reverse negative energy but it is great to be warned clearly and I am glad that I have the knowledge and skills to identify negative energy and heal the same.

I focused on forgiving myself, the attacker and all others who played a role in this situation. It is not necessary for us to carry the pain and suffering in our heart no matter what others may have done. It is up-to us to release the pain from ourselves and forgive so that we can move on further, detached from the negativity. This does not make what they did right. This only means we stop hurting now and release the unwanted energy and emotions.

I also send love and compassion to myself and others including

the one who intends me harm as I believe that people who are happy and loved do not harm others. We all need and deserve love and happiness, and happy people do not hurt themselves or others. I focus on creating happiness and focus on sending love to myself and others.

When I find myself becoming bitter and insensitive I try to realize the same as soon as possible and to cancel out these negative effects through healings and spells and by looking within me for answers.

"NOTE: ALL TECHNIQUES MENTIONED ARE ADVANCED METHODS TO BE LEARNED OR ATTEMPTED UNDER THE RIGHT GUIDANCE OF AN ESTABLISHED EXPERT"

MOST IMPORTANT ADVISE

Do not go looking for negativity and do not make it a habit to obsess over psychic attacks and so called black magic or dark arts constantly. There are some people who have been blaming all their life problems on black magic and psychic attack instead of meditating and discovering how they attracted this to them in the first place. A Psychic Attack may be in some way or another your own negative karma coming back your way.

If these things exist they are only indicators of our own inner vulnerabilities and weaknesses that they expose bare open. When something like this happens try to address the inner weakness and vulnerability that they represent within you. Always remember - The Universe is Within and each thing we observe and experience, each person, place or situation, is only an aspect of our self that needs love, healing and positive transformation.
