Spiritual & Magickal Tools For One And All

Me & My Beliefs:

For the curiosity seekers, this is just a bit of info about me and my beliefs; relevant to this blog:

  • I was born with several psychic Gifts.  I am: Claircognizant, Clairvoyant, Clairaudient, Clairsentient, Empathic and I am a Medium.  I can also do something that I call “body scanning” where I can view a person head-to-toe for injuries (old & new), medical issues, and deficiencies.
    ** I am told it is not “normal” to have all of the aforementioned Gifts but, hey–it is what it is.  So if you happen to think I’m extra weird?  I’m cool with that.  Besides which, I tend to think everyone else is strange in their own way, too!
  • I speak to Angels.  They have been with me throughout my life.  They are my companions and friends and the only constant in my life.
  • I do give readings but I do not give readings here.  Nor am I here to gain clients.  So please do not ask me for readings.  (I don’t say this to offend anyone; I’m only mentioning this point because some people email and ask me.)
    ** I do not want this blog to be about me.  I’m only here to anonymously impart any information others might find helpful.  If someone ends up finding out who I am, cool, but that’s not why I’m here.
  • I have been performing Magickal Rituals (aka: Spells) for about three decades.  I love magick.  It definitely works!
  • Through trial and error, I know the benefits and the dangers of things both metaphysical and magickal.
  • When it comes to religion, I believe there is some truth in almost all religions and therefore, I do not believe in limiting myself by adhering to any man’s idea of what I should and should not do or believe.  I’m not here to please man.  Per my beliefs, as long as I keep my focus on God, honor Him, and do only what feels right in my spirit and soul, all is well.
  • There is a Supreme, Divine Entity running this place we call Earth.  I call that Supreme, Divine Entity “God.”  You may know Him by a different name.  Cool.  I don’t know if I’m right or if you are, but, I guess we’ll be finding out after our Transition, yeah?
    ** As long as we do not get caught up in labels and names, we will learn something from each other and be better, more informed people for it, yeah?
  • I am Roman Catholic.  Yes, I attend Mass (and I am just in love with the Holy Trinity).  I also perform rituals (spells).  I also have what some people call “New Age” beliefs about the metaphysical realm because of who I am, all that I’ve personally experienced, and what I’ve seen.
    ** Since most people are more comfortable with labels, I normally tell people I’m a “New Age Catholic” and that seems to clarify…something for them (although I’m not sure what that something is, lol).
  • I believe God created all of the Elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Spirit).  As I am His child and each of those Elements exist within me and in the world He created, those Elements are at my disposal to use or not.
    * In the rituals I perform, I mix my Christian-Catholic beliefs with what some would term as Wiccan practices and beliefs.  There are people from both sides of the aisle who would take issue with me combining the two but this works well for me.
  • I fully understand and believe we humans create our lives and our realities.  And just for the record–all of that Law of Attraction stuff?  It’s been around at least a couple thousand years.  It is not a new concept; though there are those who would have you believe differently for their own gain…
  • I believe everything in the world is Energy.  If you understand this concept, you can bend, mold, and shape your life for your benefit by directing Energy.

Now.  For the sake of any sensitive people who might be easily offended, you should probably also know:

  • I am blunt-spoken, often sarcastic, and I tend to find humor in everything (including myself!). I’ll be the first to laugh at the weirdness that is normal life for me.
  • I also curse a bit, drink a couple of times a year, and smoke a bit, too.
  • Since I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to what other people think of me, it’s pretty hard to offend me.  So saying: Feel free to correct me if you think I’m wrong, I rather like it.  And if you’re going to try to offend me, try harder than you normally would.  Innuendo often escapes me.  So, maybe tell me you’re insulting me?
  • I’m very down to earth and I don’t do the whole Woo-Woo Spiritualist thing.  What is the Woo-Woo Spiritualist thing?
    Well, you’ve seen those people who always act very serious, pious and lofty because they have some Gifts and some knowledge?  Like they’re more important because of the Gifts and knowledge; so you should treat them as you would the Pope or the Dalai Lama?  Yeah, no.  I’m the opposite.
  • I also don’t do the one-upmanship games some spiritual, psychic, or ritualists do.  There will be no “Well, I learned this from Master So-and-so” (so there!) or, “I was a student of the Dalai Lama” (so bow down peasant!).
  • The only things I take seriously are the Angels, the Holy Mother, and the Holy Trinity.  So no talking shit on any of the former.  Everything else is up for grabs.
  • Lastly, if those with a serious mindset view my language and attitude as irreverent and do not believe I take the subjects spoken of on this blog seriously enough?  Well,
    A.) God has an over-developed sense of humor and so do I,
    B.) Relax.  There are no bonus points for taking everything so seriously,
    C.) Learning should be fun,
    D.) You might just want to x-out of this blog because it’s doubtful I have anything to teach you and it is highly doubtful–improbable even–that I will change my ways due to put-downs you have for me.

My Advice to the Seekers of Knowledge:

On your quest for knowledge you will hear many things from many people.  Some of these people are aligned with Truth and some are not.   Some of the information you find will directly contradict what you thought you already knew (or what you just read yesterday!).

With the computer age, there is a lot of information and misinformation out here for you.  So.  How do you know what to believe and what not to believe?  What’s right and what’s wrong?  What is harmful and what is helpful?  Well…my best advice is: If you listen to the voice inside of you, you’ll know.  No one knows what information you need, for the stage you are in (on your quest), better than your internal guidance system.

Whenever one is presented with Truth, one just...knows.  It just resonates inside of a person–almost as if that person’s soul is whispering to them, “there!  keep going that direction!”

I always tell my clients:  Never read just one book, or one blog, or listen to only one audio CD and form your life around that one author’s beliefs/belief system. Always take any information you gain from one person, and continue to seek out more information from other sources. No one human is the absolute authority though you will encounter many who will claim to be the one and only expert you should follow and listen to (coincidentally, society calls the more radical of these experts “cult leaders.”).  So be open to learning anything of import from each person you encounter.  Take in the bits and pieces someone offers that align with your Truth.  Thank and Bless the one who shared with you and keep traveling; seeking more knowledge elsewhere.

For those who really only want to jump into doing spells, astral travel, and the like without spending time learning the basics?  Well, first of all, you worry me.  You worry me because you remind me of me!  I have never been a rule-follower and I rarely read the fine print before jumping (because that’s just so damned boring, yeah?).  And being that I am a leap-before-I-look type of person, I’ve made some major FUBARs that took a lot of effort, upset, and help to clean up (and I won’t even go into the whole possessed-thing that lasted almost two years…).

Second, depending upon an individual’s personal level of power, if one tries to run without learning to walk first?  Well, that person is in for a shit-ton of freaky FUBARs.  Meaning: if you read the instructions for astral travel and try it before you’ve learned to ground and protect yourself, you can not only do damage to your spirit but, you can also harm your physical body (betcha didn’t know that, huh?).  And, if you decide to work a ritual (spell) without learning about grounding, protecting, cleansing, and a host of other no-no’s regarding spell casting, you could very well end up with the opposite results of what you were wanting to accomplish, and, you could end up with some nice, sweet chaotic and evil spirits who refuse to go away.

So, pretty please?  Even though it’s boring and not as much fun?  Learn the basics first.  The basics include learning to visualize and learning cleansing rituals and protection rituals.  I say these are ‘basics’ because you can’t do yourself any harm by practicing anyy of the aforementioned.  And working on visualization, cleansing, and protection is beneficial because it helps you become comfortable with everything you will do in the future that is complicated (and that could get messy!).  Even if you forget some steps, aren’t very focused, or totally concentrating, you really can’t mess up a cleansing or protection ritual.  The cleansing and protection rituals are essential for any spiritual or magickal endeavor.

To end and to ALL:  Always do research before you start any magickal or metaphysical rite.  Never let anyone talk you into doing something you are not completely comfortable doing!  Always listen to that internal voice you have that guides you.  Never let someone’s Ego convince you that you are “less than” others when it comes to metaphysical or magickal workings.  Ego has no place here.  Meaning:  If someone tries to tell you they are much further along in doing something than you are?  Cool.  That’s them.  You just do you; at your speed! Do not let their boasting (and that’s really what it is!) goad you into doing something that you’re either not ready for or that’s not right for you!  And for the love of all that is Holy, if you have any questions–ASK!  If you have asked the same question four times and yet you still have questions?  Well then ask a fifth time.  Anyone who would make you feel bad for repeatedly asking the same question is not someone who has anything to teach you.

If any information you come across feels “wrong” to you?  Well, it probably is wrong; in whole or maybe just wrong for you, personally.  So saying, if the information in the articles I write does not ’resonate’ with you, then the information I have to give is not for you.
And that’s okay.
There is nothing wrong with you, nor is there anything wrong with me.  It just means we are traveling different roads.  Do not stop your travels.  Do not stop seeking information and answers that resonate with you.  Your Truth will present itself.
