In my last post I talked about finding a metaphysical store that I love. For those of us that are just starting to learn about, manage and open up our abilities, a metaphysical store can be a playground! There are so many things that can help with that. There are also very knowledgeable people that can help guide you and answer questions. In the store that I go to, everyone that works there has abilities of one type or another. I love that because they understand what I am trying to accomplish. They can identify so they are great guides and resources. That being said, I still let my intuition guide me when advise is given or an item is recommended. Below are some of the things that I love and have found helpful. I could write for days about items that help me and bring me comfort. Here a few of my favorites.
Gems are wonderful helpers! They are powerful, and easy to use. It is important to carefully choose the ones that are going to benefit you and what you are trying to accomplish. Cleansing and setting the intent of gem is very important in order to get the maximum benefit.
Journals are very important to developing any psychic ability! I journal everything! Some people talk to their guides in thoughts or out loud. I do that, but right before I meditate I write a letter to them and leave the journal open to that page so that the message can be seen by the universe. I journal what I see in my meditations. Meditations are sometimes straight forward and other times they are hard to interpret. If you write them down, you may have an “AHA” moment in the future. Go back and read it. Many times, the pieces will come together. I journal my dreams. Dreams come from the subconscious. There are messages in those dreams. Like meditation the message may be straight forward, or it could be disjointed and unclear. Journaling affords the same opportunity to go back, re-read and have the meaning of the dream become more clear. In both cases that “AHA” may not come. That’s OK too.
I had a dream that was disjointed and really didn’t make sense. I first saw the face of a co-worker, then of my grandson sitting in a hospital crib. Everything was white, his gown, the crib, the walls (that freaked me out a little) but he was laughing and clapping his hands.. Lastly, I saw the hand of a friend handing me a dish of raspberries and blueberries. Part of that dream was precognitive. My grandson (who has a sever heart condition) was admitted to the hospital 14 hours later. I really felt like I needed to reach out to the co-worker, however, we don’t have a close working relationship. It took me about a week to finally call him and check in. As we chatted, he was driving to the doctor’s office to get lab work done because he had just been diagnosed with early heart disease! A couple of days after I spoke to him the dream clicked! My grandson was admitted to the hospital due to his heart issues. The co-worker had just been diagnosed with a heart issue (and needed to talk about it). The berries were blue and red. Blood is blue before it is oxygenated and read after it’s oxygenated. BOOM! There it is…I finally understood, and it did indeed all tie in together. Had I not written that dream down I would not have made the berry/blood connection. At the time of the dream the berries didn’t seem important at all. When I went back and read it that is when it all came together.
Candles. I love candles! In a metaphysical store the candles are labeled for their use. I always have a meditation candle, an intuition candle, and a health and wellness candle on hand. I also love chakra candles Like gems, set the intent of the candle before lighting it the first time. Never blow out a candle. It blows the intent away. Always use a snuffer.
Cleansers – Sage, Juniper, Cedar, Sweetgrass, sandalwood, frankincense. All of these and more can be used for cleansers OR adding good energy to your home. I love the smell of sandalwood when I meditate. A braid of sweetgrass hung above the front door will cleanse the energy of everyone who walks through it. Visitors leave bad energy at the door, keeping the house free from the clutter of others energy.
Essential oils can help with so many things. Jasper is great to rub on your third eye before meditation (or whenever) as it helps to open your third eye. Oak Moss is great for grounding. Rub a small amount on the bottom of each foot, and your root chakra (lower back right at the tailbone). Lavender calms and relaxes. Put a few drops in the bath or use an infuser to fill the air. The smell of cinnamon wil help to relieve headaches. The smell of lemon and/or grapefruit boosts energy levels. It’s unbelievable how many ways essential oils can be used. Not only to heighten abilities, but just good health in general.
Books are oh so wonderful! If you are like me and aren’t able to have a formal teacher, or a social circle that you can meet with on a regular basis (which is the case for me), reading is a must. When I go into the metaphysical store, through discussion, a book is almost always recommended. If that book calls to me when I pick it up it goes home with me. If not, it stays put. The same goes for ordering books online…get what you are drawn to.
Figurines – Angels, fairies, religious items, animals. I could go on and on. Put them in your sacred place or all around your home. Whatever feels right to you. If that isn’t something that interests you, that’s fine. They are not a must. I really enjoy them.
Jewelry is great because it is always in your energy field! Whether it helps calm, protect, bring out intuition or certain abilities and you can mix and match.
When I go to a metaphysical store, I really do feel like a kid in a candy store! I get excited! I look at every goody and while I want almost all of it, I choose what I want the most, AND what calls to me.
Lollipops or gumballs anyone? 😊
As always, I would love to hear from you all.
Blessings to all!
For many years I have had tarot cards, white quartz crystal and a variety of other metaphysical items. One evening, after I had been seeing the spirits in my home, I had an overwhelming need to get my tarot cards out and ask the question “Is this real? Or is it all in my head?” I went to get my cards and they were gone! I had recently moved. and all of my metaphysical items were gone. I frantically tore the house apart wondering if I had left them in a box that hadn’t been unpacked. They were no where to be found! I was devastated! Had I still lived in the city I would have been able to go get a new deck the next day. Now that I live about 100 miles away from the city, I couldn’t do that. It was suggested that I order them online. I couldn’t do that. When I buy items like cards or gems etc. I have to touch item. Rather than me picking the item, I let it pick me. It took about 2 weeks for me to be able to find the time to get to the city. My daughter-in-law, Brittany, went with me that day and took me to a metaphysical store that I hadn’t been to before. As soon as I walked in, I felt like that’s where I belonged. I could feel the love, wisdom and nurturing energy the moment I walked in. I made my way to the tarot cards and ended up with 2 decks. I had only intended to get one, but the second deck just felt right as I was looking though the variety that was on display. I had been learning about gems and how each gem helps with different things. I walked over to that section of the store and was immediately excited, but overwhelmed. There are so many, and while each one has it’s own properties there is overlap. Since this was my first time looking at them, I couldn’t just look at them and know which ones I needed. Now what do I do? I must have looked just as confused as I felt because one of the ladies that worked there came over and asked what I was looking for. I responded with “I don’t really know”. I briefly explained what my situation. She took her time to explain to me what I needed to help develop my intuition (which really is the foundation of all psychic abilities). She also explained that I needed protection gems and helped me pick a couple of different types suited for me. Before she walked away, she pointed out that there were small slips of paper next to each container of gems that indicated what each gem was for. Now, she could have just pointed that out and been on her way to help someone else, but she took the time to really help me. Little did I know that I would form a trust with this woman. I walked around that store for at least an hour after getting my gems and cards. Earlier I mentioned that I let items pick me. I walked out of that store with many more items than I went in for. I soon realized that these items would really help me continue down my personal path to enlightenment and developing my abilities.
When I got home, I got my cards out and asked my question. The cards laid out just as I hoped they would. I’m not crazy and it’s not all in my head. What I had been experiencing was real. There was much more information contained in that spread, but the important thing is that there was validation in the answer laid out in the cards. I was elated!
Everything happens for a reason! It’s important to remember that as your angels and guides send you messages and signs every day. They do indeed guide you. In my case those missing items lead me that store. A place full of love and wisdom.
I didn’t realize it at that moment, but It was a blessing in disguise, and I am forever grateful!
Blessings to all!
During the first conversation I had with Paula I explained that I was seeing two spirits in my house, but I knew there were many more. It actually felt crowded in my house. I felt drained all the time. She listened quietly and then in a very matter of fact way, she stated “you’re a medium”! I was elated, yet very nervous at the same time. As we talked, she explained to me how important meditation is and how important staying grounded is. I began meditating that day (after I cleansed my house). Or trying to anyway. I’ve always had high anxiety so it was very difficult for me to quiet my mind. It took me a couple of months and a lot of experimentation before I was successful for the first time. I tried picturing happy memories, beautiful places, Angels etc. I tried essential oils like jasmine, lavender and Oakmoss. To no avail.
What finally made it click? Holding a piece of red jasper (compliments of the owner of my favorite metaphysical store) in my hand and not trying to meditate, but just focusing on my breathing. Not trying to see anything in particular. It was only when I stopped trying to force it that it happened. Once it did it became very calming and magical. I look forward to seeing something new every time I meditate.
If you are having difficulty meditating don’t give up. Your intuition will take you to the place you need to be. Trust that.
If you meditate and would like to share techniques that worked for you please do. 😊
Blessings to all
