Just to cover my ass I am going to state that I am not a doctor, nor a licenced medical anything (though I would like a license for medical marijuana… but that is neither here nor there)
My S.O. is currently attending college and is a Health and Health Promotions Major. As such my S.O. is a wealth of knowledge when I feel sick or off. She helped me a few years ago when I was feeling down but not depressed (I know what depression feels like) by suggesting that I take a vitamin B supplement, as when the body is stressed it burns through your B’s which can leave you lethargic and feeling off.
The B’s I take work very quickly but they have the effect of unbalancing me while replenishing my B’s. Nothing major just mood swings where I am not well grounded.
So what I do is a balancing exercise I found in Jason Miller’s “The Sorcerers’ Secrets” and “Financial Sorcery”. I begin by getting into the Gnostic Trance and utilize the pillar ritual. Then I amass all the energy at the base of my spine, I create a filter that traps in energy that corresponds to “Earth” and filter the rest up my spine, the stomach keeps fire, the heart keeps water, the throat keeps air and my head keeps spirit.
I then run energy up and down , and finally out this channel which has the effect of cleansing and balancing me.
It helps a lot to balance myself after spirit work, the weird B vitamin thing, or anything else that knocks me outta wack.
So how about the rest of you? What do you do to rebalance yourself? I think this is something magicians new and experienced need to keep track of as all the stuff we do can knock us out of wack fairly easily.
