To develop keen intuitive skills you must see it in real time. Keep a running log of your dreams, visions, gut feelings, impressions, and persistent messages. You can revisit your records to highlight key areas, and begin to connect the dots. You will begin to see a thread running through your experiences, and the law of cause and effect will become apparent. You will find your point of power in your experiences because you will know how one thing leads to the next, and you will be able to use that to your advantage while manifesting the reality you want.

Frankincense was one of the 3 gifts of the Magi. It has long been regarded as a sacred resin, associated with the divine and prayer. It has been burned as a form of communicating with the Divine, and was even left as offerings in holy temples.
Burning Frankincense is a powerful form of fumigation. This simple act will attract the benifit of benevolent spirits, and draw in good fortune. Not only can it be burned to sweeten the air, but a touch of Frankincense oil on the wrist and pulls points will nullify negative energy and lighten your aura.
Perform a house blessing, by smuding each area with sage, and then wash the floors, walls and windows with a soultion of spring water, Frankincense oil, and sea salt. This will empower the aura of the space, releasing any stray energy and inviting in positive influence.

When the day hangs heavy on me like a thick fog, I retreat to a nice warm bath! Spiritual bathes are a wonderful way to lighten your aura, and release negativity. For me it is a spiritual experience, an act of prayer and serenity.
I light white candles for purity, burn nag champa for spiritual blessing, and I fill my teapot with aromatic chamomile, with a drop of vanilla. It’s important to set the stage with things that lift and alter your state of mind; this is the heart of ritual. What makes you feel at ease? What speaks to your spirit? What brings out your inner gypsy?
To prepare your bath, run the water to a temperature of your liking. You want to feel at peace while you soak. This isn’t a bath for cleaning off physical debris; this is a bath strictly for rinsing out your aura! As the water is running you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil, or tea tree oil, or citrus oil.
After the tub has filled to the desired level, I like to add two cups of Epson or sea salt. Salt is a powerful cleansing agent that actually pulls the negative energy from your aura and nullifies it. You could also add a cup of vinegar, lemon juice, or sage tea.
Any combinations of the above suggestions are appropriate! Pick one or two that you fill will combine together nicely. There’s no reason to use all the ingredients… it’s not going to get you “cleaner”.
After I’ve added my desired cleansing ingredients, I like to say a prayer to charge the bath with intention. It can be simple. Impromptu. Or traditional.
Let the vibrant light of the divine bless this water.
Fill it with energy to heal and cleanse my spiritual bodies.
This water will wash away the weights and stresses of the day.
I will emerge lighter, brighter and refreshed.
The essence of angels infuses this water to uplift my spirit.
You may write your own prayer, or pick a prayer that gives you a feeling of cleansing. If the Lords prayer offers you a sense of security and serenity, that is appropriate. If the lyrics to, “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac makes you feel new, that’s appropriate. It’s all in the intention.
Now you can enter the bath. Close your eyes take deep cleansing breaths. Allow the aromas to fill you. Let your mind be lulled into a state of peace. The steam of the water will work through your system loosening and dissipating heavy energies. The water will absorb and neutralize attachments in your aura.
At this time I like to visualize the process of my energy going from dull and dirty, to luminous. See yourself beginning to glow like the Moon emerging from the clouds. You are being renewed. You are being reborn.
The more powerful your intention, the more powerful the effect.
Enjoy the process. Sip your tea. Sing at the top of your lungs. Converse with your angels. Continue more prayer. Read something up lifting. Let the candle light, the sweet scents and the warm water empower you. You are soaking in liquid light.
Remain in the bath for at least 10 minutes. Remember this is not a bath to wash your hair, or to take care of any other grooming. This is only for the spirit!
Once you’ve stepped from the bath visualize yourself wrapped in the white light of the divine. Ask for your guides to surround you in protection, love and healing. You should feel renewed!
This is the perfect ritual if: you have had an extremely difficult day, you are feeling drained, uninspired, angry, ill, scattered, or just generally “off”. I perform this ritual a few times a week!
How do you feel, now?
(If you are pregnant, have allergies, or any medical condition, please, be sure to take proper precaution. I am not a doctor, nor am I responsible for any results from this process.)
I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice! Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

Do you feel icky in public? Does your mood instantly change for no reason? Do you ever feel thick clouds hanging heavy over a room? Do you experience thoughts that come from nowhere? How about feeling like someone is in your bubble? Sounds like you need to put on some psychic armor!
The Reality of Energy
There is a never endless storm of energies brewing around you. Energy hangs heavy in the air and floats about, mostly, undetected. People invade your space by trying to intermingle their alien energies with your own. It is easy to be caught in the tangled web of energy, which leads to mood poisoning, energetic cords and attachments. These are all signs of a weakened psychic shield.
The importance of surrounding yourself with energetic protection is the utmost! Your energy is a glowing, swirling mass of beautiful golden light. It is magnetic, brilliant and sparkling. To quote Gollum, it is, “The precious!” Your energetic field is your life force, a conglomeration of everything that you are… and if you aren’t psychically protected, everything you encounter!
Your aura is filled with all the thoughts, feelings and experiences you have. You’ve also collected a number of attachments, and cords in your aura, which eat away at your energy and leave you drained. It’s the equivalent of leaving your wifi unlocked… But WORSE!
You Need Psychic Protection When
If you have difficulty sleeping at night. If you feel foggy at work. If you are drained after spending time with a particular person. If you are drained, angry, anxious, depressed, physically sick and spaced out. If you feel like people are pulling at your energy, thus draining it. Or you are taking on other people’s energy.
You can become a victim to a psychic vampire (someone who sucks away your essence) or pick up empathetic impressions (you take on the emotions/ mental state of someone else).
Protect your energy! Protect your life-force! Protect your precious!
What You Can Do
Surround yourself with a shield of protection! Regardless of how you perceive Divinity, you have access to spiritual protection. You should surround yourself with a beautiful bubble of divine light. Have you had your does of white light today?
If not… try this! Visualize a white light falling from above, like water, encompassing your entire body, from head to toe. See the light surround you in a warm, robust bubble of white fire. As you surround yourself, set the intention that, “Only energies serving my highest good may enter this divine shield”. Nothing can cross this shield!
Take It a Step Further
Visualize a shield of mirrors, reflecting outward, surrounding the bubble of white light. These mirrors will deflect any negativity and harm sent your way. Intended, “All harm and negativity sent toward me shall be deflected”.
If you are feeling particularly vulnerable you can call your angels and spirit guides in. Remember, your guides are most helpful when you ask for them. You can ask for the aid of any angel, deity, master or saint that feels right to you.
I often call upon Archangel Michael. He is the divine protector. His energy is intense, vibrant, loving and extremely powerful. He always appears to me as a tall, dark headed man, with a beautiful smile, chiseled jaw and sturdy figure. His eyes burn with devotion and authority. His gestures are gentle, and filled with grace. He wields a fiery sward to ward off harm, and cut through negativity.
When I call Archangel Michael, I ask him and his band of helpers to stand beside me. To protect me from all harm. And to cut away any negative and stray energy which may be affecting me. I know without a doubt that he is there.
Explore what works for you!
Begin with the simple white light exercise. This is the easiest way to protect yourself. You can do it in a flash. Whenever you are feeling invaded and vulnerable, close your eyes, take a deep breath and see the light surround you. Zip yourself in tight!
You may find a certain color, other than white, makes you feel safe and secure. You can surround yourself with colors of any particular intention, along with your white light. You can see yourself surround by a shield of any material. Whatever works for you to create a strong and sturdy energetic shield!
Try it before taking the bus to work, or before going into a stressful meeting or entering a busy coffee shop.
See what happens. It couldn’t hurt to try a little white light!! I promise it will help.
What psychically unsafe situations have you found yourself in? Have you experienced any of these symptoms? How do you protect yourself psychically?

There is a constant stream of thoughts, words and ideas running through our head creating an inner dialogue. In order to tap into your intuition, you must learn to separate your inner voice, from the conglomerated chatter of the world around you (people, TV, radio, co-workers, past conversations). Take time for silence to allow your inner dialogue to unwind, and disentangle from the chaos. In silence you can hear the whispers of intuition, and eventually they will be loud and clear.
The future is fluid…a pulsing, ever changing thing. Nothing is set in stone. You have within your power the ability to manipulate energy, meaning you can influence the tides of what’s to come in your life. Instead of feeling helpless at the arms of fate, you can look the future fearlessly in the eye! The more conscious you are of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs the more consciously you can manifest. With that being said there are things that you will need to experience, whether you like it or not! We all have a map to follow on our journey, you have a destination/lesson to learn, but the paths to that lesson are as numerous as the routes to Florida!

Wrap your satin glow around me
In protection, power and grace
Give me the vision to see beyond
These walls that keep me bound
In this illusion of depletion and separation
Hush my ego self so that spirit may whisper to me
Working through my fragile shell to guide
Those who seek refuge in your light
Allow me to access with clarity
The wisdom, the healing and the knowledge
Of the all knowing, the I Am
So that our path in this earth-walk may be
A little easier, a little brighter
Let me bask in the love of the Universe
Grant me the courage and the power to see
The love and light within my spirit
Allow me to step beyond the veil
To the world where we have not forgotten our glory
Where time flows into one golden ring
And the answers I seek are found
And where the desires I have are made real
With the hand of celestial helpers guiding me
And the love of the guiding flames
Let me walk this path
In this moment, in each day
So shall it be
