Opening up your psychic senses & Energy Healing
[Part 1 Awaken your senses]
Based on the replies from you guys I figure this is a good place to start. It really pays to spend time opening up all senses that you possibly can. This will take your craft a long way no matter what type of magick you perform whether it’s healing or astral travel or something else entirely.
First it’s good to know there is a wide range of forms that these extra senses can take.
Few people will have all of them but at least you can begin to identify the ones you have or come most naturally. For a really good list with a description of each one you can check out this source here
Just a few mentioned are: divination, clairaudience,claircognizance,astral travel,biokensis and so many others
I have no doubt others exist that are not on this list we just haven’t learned to tap into them yet
The more you work with any sense available to you the more others awaken on their own.
But if you don’t have any that come naturally that’s ok too you can still awaken something and that’s where you start.
My whole life I possessed some form of psychic ability. Actually I had more as a kid than I do know. As a child I could hear and see spirits. I knew deep knowledge about myself and the universe and those around me.
The thing is I would say things that disturbed the adults around me. I was frightened of the entities that would visit me and no one believed me about them.
After more than one incident where I was just absolutely horrified by what visited me. I shut everything down. I turned off these senses. I did this to survive. I still haven’t regained my second sight to the ability I had it then although it’s better than it used to be
But I was never able to lose my ability to hear. Being psychically blind made me more empathic and sensitive to energy signatures. Just like being physically blind enhances other senses.
To be clear if you have second sight don’t go poking your eyes out to discover other heightened senses. Build on what you have.
So even though I possessed some natural ability. No one told me what it was. No one gave me a name for it and because I shut everything down I had to learn how to reawaken them. So I can empathize with those starting at ground zero.
Working with an entity can awaken or reawaken your senses faster than working by yourself. I tried and tried on my own but Apollo befriended me at 16 and told me where to start
Take up a divination
Doesn’t really matter what kind. I started out with cards and a pendulum. I see and hear a lot of other magicians report that this also gave them a firm foundation. Our intuition is like a muscle and the more we use it the stronger it gets. Divination gives us a concrete practice to work with. We can touch a pendulum we can touch cards. It just works
Meditation is not about clearing your head and becoming void of thought. It’s about learning to focus. A big part of magick is learning how to focus our will. Meditation also helps get us in touch with what our own energetic bodies feel like. I don’t doubt the existence of my aura or soul because it’s something I can tangibly feel just like I can feel my arm. This didn’t happen overnight this happened with practice
There are many free guided meditations on you tube and it’s a really good place to start.
When you have a thought enter your head don’t ignore it acknowledge it let it move on.
Or even better if you are doing a silent unguided meditation figure out where this thought is coming from and then where did that incident start that caused the thought in the first place. Unravel everything like a ball of string until there’s nothing left.
Yoga is a physical practice that helps align our chakras and energetic bodies. To be clear there are other energy systems out there. This is just the one I use that works for me. It’s possible physical exercise in general helps.
Often when we’re not physically healthy we are also suffering from some kind of energy block.
Exercise first then meditate. The reason for this is that you won’t be bothered by a stiff neck or back and create a distraction within your meditation. You’re body will be ready and willing to relax.
- Binaural beats
Take some time to study how our brains go from delta alpha beta theta gamma waves. Binaural beats which you can easily find on youtube help our brains make that shift. Just like switching gears in a car if you’ve ever driven stick.
Delta is when we’re asleep
Beta is when we’re awake and stressed out and unfortunately where most of us spend our time
Alpha is supposed to be our natural state. It’s a very relaxed state that helps us engage with our intuition and come up with our best ideas
Gamma is an elusive state that few get in. Gamma is when we are extremely focused. It also helps connect you to a universal consciousness what we might call The All
Theta takes us out of our bodies and prepares us for astral travel. It’s also good for pain. Tight muscles melt like butter here.
Apollo gave me the exercise weights but Raphael took my senses to a new height. He not only took over as my astral guide but he spent time with me coaxing me out from an awake state so I could learn what that felt like. And while it doesn’t happen every day. I’ve had some intense astral travels starting from that awakened state. Most of my travels however happen while I’m dreaming and I’ve learned to trust that. He also fed me the information about how to switch gears in my brain. I learned that directly from him not any article I read. So I was really impressed when I heard Koetting talk about it too.
- Work with your dreams
By no means do you have to be a lucid dreamer and learn how to control your dreams. Just journal them and look for the messages behind them. Stop treating your dreams like random nonsense and treat each one as a meaningful puzzle. The more you learn to speak the language of dreams the more clearly your dreams speak back.
Until you find yourself not merely dreaming but traveling with your senses intact. Able to feel touch taste and make decisions around you just like if you were if you were awake. But this isn’t the same as lucid dreaming. You’re still going to interact with entities the way you would interact with people here. While yes you can create things and magick is easier here. You only have so much leeway to control the mind of another sentient being the same as here. The good news there’s also only so much they can do to you.
Lucid dreaming is a closed box a virtual reality where you can practice your skills what I’m talking about is real astral travel that will start to happen naturally when you fall asleep.
Not just a feel good tool of pop psychology. This is fundamental. The more we’re able to visualize and be creative the more magick we can perform. Visualisation is a tool that helps us funnel and direct energy in accordance with our will
- Trust Yourself
There will always be someone to challenge what you know and what you can do. Or you might doubt yourself more than anyone else does. But learn to trust yourself because at the end of the day who else can you trust? No one is going to have your best self interest at heart more than you do
[Part 2 Energy Healing]
It’s not as hard as you think and your patient heals themselves. Of course I’m also coming at this from the background of a reiki healer.
What you’re really doing is directing energy at your patient and then your patient intelligently decides how to use it. They don’t have to be an experienced mage either. This is instinct. Just like when you put a band aid on you don’t have to think about how to grow new skin over the cut your body just does it. All you did was give the energetic band aid to your patient.
I was having a particularly bad day today. My boss said something to me that made me genuinely sad while at work. I actually get along with my boss so this was almost as bad as a good friend telling you they’re disappointed in you. But on the bright side I learned something new I can share with you guys. It’s a form of energy healing anyone can do you don’t have to be a reiki master to do it
To heal a broken heart
Close your eyes
Put your hand on your heart
Take a deep inhale through your nose, exhale through a sigh
As you inhale imagine taking in white light energy, exhale letting the light flow to your heart
Hold and focus on the white light as long as you need
Now imagine the light changes color from white to green
Breathe and allow the green light to flow into your heart through your breath
Hold and focus on the green light as long as you need
Imagine the light changes color again from green to white
Allow the light to flow to your heart through your breath
Take a deep inhale, exhale through a sigh
Open your eyes
And here’s another one for physical pain. I did this with a client recently at work. An elderly lady who was having pain everywhere and practically skipped away when we were done.
For managing physical pain
Sit down with your patient and get into a focused state beside them. Connect your energy to theirs. (An easy way to do this if you can’t feel it is to ask your spirits to connect to theirs) Ask them to take deep inhales and exhale through their mouth. Relaxing everything. Ask them to imagine a white light hitting the problem area of their body. Imagine the pain melting away. And while you’re asking them to visualize this for themselves visualize it for them.
The way you word your speech counts. Tell them that they’re pain is melting away. Tell them they feel ok. This is a hypnotic suggestion and it works. They want to feel better so they’ll take your suggestion. Hypnosis in this way is actually very easy to pull off.
Hope this answers some of your questions and thanks for reading. If you try these exercises let me know how it works for you
