Affirmations For Change

Tribal Wolf Patterns Colored by SpringwolfCreating Positive Thought Patterns

We all set up recurring thought patterns in our subconscious that affect how we live our life. These patterns could be self doubt, a lack of confidence, or emotional perspectives based on how you interact with others. These thoughts can come from societies preconceived notions about the kind of person you are, from family and friends, and from your own views about situations you have experienced in your life.

Allowing these thought patterns to reside in your subconscious, allows them to dictate your choices in life, which at times can be detrimental to self-growth and enlightenment.

One way to help bring about change in your life is to focus on replacing negative thinking with positive thinking through affirmations. Instead of “I hate being fat” for instance, start telling yourself “I am beautiful” or “I am working to become the healthy person I want to be”.

Affirmations are a way of reprogramming the subconscious to think differently and to automatically react in a more positive way when trigger situations occur in your life. Continue reading

Clearing The Negative and Setting Protection

Everyone has the ability to feel subtle energies around them. I’m sure you can think of a time when you walked into a room where an argument had been happening, feeling the anger or angst. Maybe you’ve even shared a story with a friend saying “You could cut the tension with a knife”.

You don’t have to be psychic or overly sensitive to the energies around you for this type of event to happen. It’s part of our natural instincts as living animals. Human animals maybe, but we still have the ability to sense what’s around us.

In today’s world meditation is viewed from two perspectives, from the spiritual form of enlightenment and becoming one with spirit. Or through the eyes of mainstream medicine as a non-denominational practice that can relieve stress. If a non-denominational practice interests you, try the 5 Minute Meditation for bringing in a little relaxation and escape from the anxieties around you.

Releasing Hurtful Energy

Pain, Hurt & AngerWhen You’re Hurt or Angry

If you live on this planet, you’ve gone through experiences where someone in your life has hurt you deeply. Either by a relationship that has broken up, or through a situation where you were targeted as an adversary. Or some other event that has put you at odds with someone or others in your life. We’ve all been hurt.

We can sit down and dream or visualize what we would like to do or say to others that will make us the victor in the situation. You can “see” them apologize to you for being so mean and hurtful. You can wish for them to try to make it up to you, so you can throw their shallow gesture back in their face. But dreaming of revenge and how you might hurt them back, only keeps you connected to them and the negative energy built up within you.

When we allow that hurt to eat away at us, it causes physical ailments to develop. When we hold on to that pain and anger, it creates strife in our own lives that have nothing to do with the situation we experienced. When we allow our character to change because of what someone else did to us, we are giving them more power over our lives and who we are. Releasing this hurtful energy is the key to creating a healthy, happy and positive life. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Cups – Inverted

Ace of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Even though you have the strength to break through the walls of limitation, you don’t have to use a wrecking ball. Sometimes letting go and moving on from others requires compassion and love. Don’t yell at your friend(s) who are always negative and putting limitations on you. Use love and compassion to explain to them you’re working hard to change your life. And sometimes that means releasing things…and people…who aren’t good for you.


Additional Insight:

Negative thinking breeds more negative thinking. If you’re getting to the point where the negativity of others are bringing you down and zapping your energy, then it maybe time to look at your choices. You can’t learn their lessons for them. You can’t change them when they are dug into the misconceptions and hate. But you can make the choice to walk away and allow them to live their life, while you grow and move beyond those limiting actions.

Remember you have free will and choice. You decide who you want to be with and hang around. You can use compassion and let them know their constant hate is wearing thin. Let them know you are moving on. Ask them if they would like to change their life for the better and learn to be positive? If they say no and put you down. You have your answer. Give them a hug and walk away. Let them know it was nice while it lasted, but there’s no room in your life for their brand of hate and anger.

It’s your choice. It’s your life. Take control of it. When you close a door of negativity a new door will open and the void will be filled with better options and uplifting friends.

Forms of Spirit Communication

Communicating With Spirit Through Divination & Psychic Tools

Divination AltarThe following section is a contribution from one of the regular members to my original message board, Panther Witch. She has graciously allowed me to post part of her research on the History of Divination from the board.  I have made a few additions & edits.


Divination:
(From Merriam Webster’s Online Dictionary)
From the Middle English “Divinacioun”,
From Latin “Divination-, divinatio, from divinare”.
Approximate first usage: 14th century

1. The art or practice that seeks to foresee or foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by the interpretation of omens or by the aid of supernatural powers.
2. Unusual insight; intuitive perception.
3. The practice of sensing energy patterns around a person, animal, place or thing and interpreting messages from that energy.

The word divination comes from the Latin word “divinare” or to be inspired by the Divine. Traditionally, it never has mattered which God or Deity has inspired the events foreseen, but almost all religions have had their versions of diviners. It is actually more common than most people realize. Continue reading

As Above, So Below

The Importance Of Balance

The phrase has come to mean various things to different people, societies and religions. It has evolved on some stages and remained the same on others. But to understand the original concept of As Above, So Below, we need to know where it came from and how it was first used.

Who created the idea and why? How did they implement it and what did it stand for? These questions can help us understand the journey of the concept and perhaps even regain the importance behind the words and how they should still be applied to our lives today.

The History Of Above and Below
In the Pagan and Metaphysical communities, these words are often used and bandied about to show relation between spirit and physical realms. They are reported to have originated from the “Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus”, also know as the tablet of “The Secret of Hermes”. But this is a downsized version of the tablet’s verse. The original phrase stated “That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing”

According to Wikipedia there are several translations of this text, including Arabic, Latin, and even one from Isaac Newton. “The compact and cryptic text was highly regarded by European alchemists as the foundation of their art, in particular of its Hermetic tradition. Interpreting the layers of meanings of the Emerald Tablet, from individual words to the overall meaning, is fraught with possibilities, but certainly Alchemy’s Magnum opus and the ancient, classical, element system are the basis of any sound explanation, as they provide a key to the ideas of earth, fire, sun, moon, etc., common to all the translations.” This elemental approach strives to show the balance in all things or the circles of existence.

Over the centuries, many Occult organizations have put their own spin on “As above, so below”. But it’s not only in these realms of mysticism that the phrase can be found. It’s been accepted into almost every known religion today and is often associated with that religion’s history. All three non-pagan religions have laid claim to the phrase and put their own spin on its meaning as well. New Age and modern Metaphysics also have their claims on the concept and have given it their own interpretations. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Devil – Inverted

The Devil - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Look at things from a different angle, they’re not as bad as you think they are. Others maybe trying to grasp at straws from out of the flames. But you have risen above the fray and are in a position of healing. Don’t judge your day by the complaints and hardships of others. They are still continuing the same old patterns and refuse to change their ways. You have learned many lessons, accept the healing needed from those old negative patterns and are walking toward a positive future! Come on, give yourself come credit already!


Additional Insight:

It’s easy to get pulled into the energy of others and warp your own view of your path. But don’t let those who are always complaining, always looking for a reason to be down and always finding reasons to be angry control your day. If you can’t segregate yourself from these negative people, then focus on setting some good energy shields to bounce their negativity off your environment and back into theirs where it belongs. Close your ears to their voices and walk away when their anger boils over and tries to impact you!

Try to remember that you are the one who has worked hard to change. You have put in the effort, the time and learned the hard lessons in order to break the old patterns and change. You have the strength, courage and energy to face a brighter day. You’ve already done it…so seriously stop being so blasted hard on yourself!
