Magical Vocabulum- Scrying

Scrying simply means, ‘to discern’. This comes quite naturally for a lot of people, though they may not know this is what it’s called. Do you see distinct shapes in the clouds? In the leaves of trees? In the sea foam as it embraces the sand? How about in the swirling of color in floor tiles? It’s called scrying and you can learn a lot about yourself if you meditate on what you’re seeing.

What do you see most often? Faces, animals, shapes?

You can scry into the smoke of the incense in the image above by softening your eyes, relaxing your focus and opening your mind. The shapes you see could reveal some inner work that needs to be addressed or could inspire your creative side as you conspire with the Universe to shape your future.

You’ve seen scrying practiced before in childhood tales. Do you recall the famous words, “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” The evil queen from the story of the princess friend to seven dwarves, gazes confidently into the mirror as she asks for her truth to be told. Then the day finally came when the mirror no longer spoke her truth, but rather the truth of another. The magic mirror voiced there was one fairer than she, but not only was the princess fair in physical beauty, but more importantly she was a beauty in the heart. This is the risk we take when asking for truth to be told. We’re not always going to hear what we want to hear. This work we do in the world is first about healing ourselves. If we hide from the truth then we weaken ourselves as light workers.

Scrying can be done in numerous ways, but the most common are in mirrors and water. Other methods are in flames of a fire or candle, waterfalls, black onyx or black obsidian plates, steam over hot water, and crystal balls.

You can learn more in my class “Magical Tools”. In this class, we study various tools, their origin in magic, and how to use them in your modern day practice.

In what ways have you practiced scrying?

Abundance Principles- Planting Seeds

We’re often thinking of how we can plant seeds in the lives of others, but how often do we think of doing the same for ourselves? Planting seeds is an intentional practice of abundance. There’s a vast metaphor within this lesson that will span a few more Abundance Principles and I want to make sure you benefit from this. In order for us to effectively plant seeds for others, we need to first be our own Master Gardener.

What seeds have you planted in your own garden? If you want your kids to accept who they are, you first must accept who you are. If you want your family to be loving, that starts with you exemplifying love. Want your kids to share, but do you share? This principle goes hand in hand with the previous one principle, self reflection. What seeds are you planting in yourself? Are you being kind to yourself? Loving? Brave?

What seeds can you plant today?

Magical Vocabulum- Anoint

This Magical Vocabulum lesson comes from ancient practices dating back to ancient Egypt.

Anoint: to smear with oil for consecrating. To make holy or devote.

Ancient peoples anointed their tools, sacred spaces, and even themselves for holy work. Even the Bible tells the stories of anointing with precious oils. A practice many people have neglected and yet holds so much power. I feel we are in a time when our land deserves and demands our consecrated attention, intentions, and prayers.

When we use perfumes made of essential oils, botanicals, and even absolutes we are layering our intentions with these aromatic essences. Studying the intricate parts of each plant, the oils are taken from, opens a door of meditation to deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. It’s a practice to heighten and deepen our senses as well as empowering our intentions to manifest the impossible in our lives.

I include a hand crafted anointing blend with several of my Altar Kits, because I understand the power and importance in anointing.

You can learn more in my class “Earth as Medicine”.  In these classes we explore a multitude of herbs and essential oils and how they work.

Why Every Light Worker Needs to Learn This

What to do when you have built up energy, worked with it, and need to give it back to the Universe to avoid overload:

Connect with Earth with bare feet and hands.

 

While we can talk about the feel of the earth under bare feet and toes, there’s something far more intrinsic about how it relates to the soul. Being bare and unprotected teaches us to trust and be vulnerable. This is what ‘earthing’ does for our spiritual journey. Our feet represent where we go in this life, our hands represent what we do. There’s no better place to build our strength than to walk through places where we can be vulnerable and to serve others who make us uncomfortable. How can we, as light workers, serve our community if we haven’t faced our own fears? How do we intuitively guide others if we haven’t already walked that path and emerged victoriously?

Most people don’t want to be vulnerable. When we refuse to allow ourselves to be vulnerable, we rob ourselves from the opportunity to become stronger. What happens in that process can be both harmful and helpful at the same time, we develop callouses. Callouses can be protective, but also hurtful. This is both a physical aspect of life as well as an emotional and spiritual one. We’re all born vulnerable and we all develop callouses.

Being vulnerable doesn’t mean we’re going to render ourselves unprotected. There’s always an element of protection that is required while being vulnerable. If we have no safeguards in place then we wouldn’t be able to trust being vulnerable. Building a layer of protection is crucial to our work, both personally and professionally. When we’re working with people who come to us for spiritual guidance, we need to have our own layer of protection. There’s a lot more to teach about protection and it deserves more than just a blog post. For now, I want to focus more on how to release the tension we see and feel happening to us on a daily basis. That tension that comes from being exposed, from being vulnerable, can build up over time and become quite unattractive.

We attract a multitude of energy from others as we walk through the store, endure traffic and drivers with road rage, and even while raising toddlers with tantrums. Nothing hurts our families like allowing all that energy to follow us back home. When we open our front door at the end of the day and walk in with  energetic parasites leeching on us we will manifest their sickness and infect our families. At the end of the day, we bring home all kinds of tension. The earth is there to be our greatest ally and healer in this work we’re called to.

Below are a few examples of how you can release that tension at the end of the day.

The simplest release method is to touch the earth with our skin. Our bare feet and palms of our hands release in such a natural way. Kick off your shoes and socks and plant your feet on the ground. In the dirt, sand, or grass is best, but even on the concrete will work. Sit on a bench or stool outside your home and rest your feet gently, lifting periodically to allow air to move freely around your feet. Wiggle your toes and imagine the tension being released, as though you’re sprinkling it off and the earth is accepting it from you. Allow yourself to feel the blades of grass wiping and cleansing your feet of anything that won’t serve you and your family. Emotional, mental, and spiritual friction can create a calloused exterior. Rub your feet in the sand and visualize it exfoliating the rough patches of energy that developed during your day of friction.

Obviously, going barefoot is easier in climates with mild weather. If you can’t get to Earth (many live in cities and several blocks from a park): keep a sacred bowl of earth and stones in your home somewhere that can be used. While sitting down, place your bare feet in the dirt and send the energy to the earth. Allow earth to receive that energy. Brush off the dirt from your feet then place them in a foot bath with sea salt for cleansing. You can also add some essential oils like rosemary, lavender, or patchouli.

Another method, to be used with our hands, is through touch. We have palm trees in front of our home, do you have a tree in your yard or even in the parking lot at work? Trees, especially palm trees, endure a lot of battering in the elements of the sun, wind, and rain. They take a lot and become stronger over time. They’re strong enough to receive your tension and send it back to the earth through their firmly planted roots. Place your hands on the trunk of the tree and thank it for being your ally. Breathe in the oxygen its leaves are offering to you and allow your lungs to receive the cleansing Air has to offer you. As you exhale, you’re releasing what no longer serves you and your tree willingly accepts it through the carbon dioxide you offer back. The tree is able to filter out the negative energy and use the rest for food through photosynthesis. Once you feel the tension release, place your hands palm-to-palm and bow then offer your gratitude for the work the tree does on your behalf. Make sure you’re taking good care of your tree all year long. While the tree is your ally, you also need to be an ally in return.

Create a salt scrub for your hands and feet. Sea salt with grounding oils (like patchouli, sandalwood, or Vetiver) and gently scrub hands and feet then take a bath or shower and wash it all away. Keep your salt scrub at the kitchen or laundry sink to use as soon as you come home.

Abundance Principles- Value

How we value life and all that’s contained therein can greatly influence how abundance manifests in our lives. How do we value ourselves, our families, what we currently posses, and what we have not yet achieved? Are we practicing gratitude?

The system of our society places value on life and possessions based on greed. If money wasn’t a part of the system, how would your value meter change? How we value will directly influence how we manifest abundance.

We have to get to the gritty parts of our thinking and our emotions and do some serious work.

We’re either manifesting passively or purposefully and our subconscious values are at work. Are your values working against you or in your favor?

Join us in our Facebook group to gather advice about the value of abundance from other intuitive practitioners.

Magical Vocabulum- Tasseography

 

The only magical thing I know of my grandmother, on my father’s side, was that she read tea leaves. I wish I could’ve had the chance to be inquisitive about her spiritual beliefs, but it wasn’t a thought on my mind at the time. Oh, if we could turn back time! Needless to say, my knowledge of reading tea leaves had to come through research, practice, and meditation. One of the beautiful things about intuitive arts is the liberality of your own creative style.

Tasseography: to gain divine insight by discerning tea leaves. In Middle Eastern Traditions, coffee grounds are read for divine guidance. Did you know you could also read sediment left behind by wine? Just another good reason to pour a glass.

There are psychological aspects to reading tea leaves, similar to that of inkblot readings by your psychologist. It all started with Swiss Freudian Psychiatrist, Hermann Rorschach. It’s been a method of examining a person’s personality characteristics and emotional wellbeing. The methods between the psychological reading of inkblots and the metaphysical have similarities, but also some distinctive differences.

A psychologist may dissect what you see in the inkblot as a method of investigating what has already taken place in you. Whereas a tea leaf reader may look into your future with what’s left in your tea cup. Both methods can be equally helpful for our overall wellness.

Tasseography is widely known of in the Gypsy community, but people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds can be a talented tea leaf readers. Intuitive Art is a craft that any artist can tap into and develop their skills in a way that’s productive for them. I don’t buy into the idea that any particular region has the corner market on spiritual skills and talents, though I do recognize and honor the depth each holds in their heritage. If you’re feeling called to deepen your soul with tasseography, start with the Gypsy community and see where they take you.

There are graphics online that show symbolism and shapes to guide you in interpreting the images you see in the bottom of the cup, but also consider writing your own key based on what your intuition teaches you.

Did you know you can use specific herbs to enhance your tea leaf readings? You can learn more about herbal magic in my class “Intuitive Practitioner”. In this class, we journey together in developing a personal intuitive practice to not only benefit ourselves, but everyone else we are mentoring and guiding.

Abundance Principles-Giving

The art of giving- When you want to create abundance you need to think in terms of giving.

 

This isn’t about giving money or lavish gifts (though any giving is good) it’s about digging deep into your soul. Does the gift speak to the soul? Is there a meaningful memory involved in the gift or perhaps a tool to assist the receiver with their life long dreams? Let your giving touch the soul.

Join us in our Facebook group to learn more about how to give in ways that manifest for you and for those you give to.

Magical Vocabulum- Altar

The word ‘altar’ has some negative connotations for some, depending on what they were taught. An altar has been used by peoples from all different regions and spiritual paths throughout history and even in our modern day use of wedding ceremonies.

Altar- an elevated place for honoring deity or ancestors. Not to be confused with ‘alter’, which means ‘to change’ as in, making alterations.

While an altar is a physical place of reverence, the verb ‘alter’ is what can happen when we spend time in spiritual practice at an altar. If we aren’t growing and transforming through spiritual practice then we’re missing out on what we can accomplish in this life.

An altar can be set up to honor and beseech a deity for assistance or knowledge, but one does not need to seek a deity to work with an altar. An altar can be used to help you focus on intentions and goals you want to see manifest or to serve as a purpose of keeping us mindful of how we use our influence in the world. I sometimes arrange a mini family altar to support communication when the family is at odds with each other.

You can learn more about creating an altar in my course, “Intuitive Home Class”. In this class I teach you how to create your own intuitive practice at home and create a sanctuary of abundance and blessings. I hope you’ll join us.

The 3 Best Kept Secrets of Magic

These are some of the best kept secrets to working magic and there are plenty of practitioners out there that don’t want you to know about them. They’ll scoff, ridicule, and even rebuke me for publishing this. But here you are, getting in on the truth now. Hopefully before you break the bank trying to pay for expensive classes and pricey tools. These secrets don’t exactly align well with those who make hundreds of thousands of dollars selling beads, incense, and candles. I’m not here to knock their endeavors, but you deserve to know the truth and we all know truth sets us free.

 

  1. Everyone can work magic. Your religion, economic status, or level of education doesn’t matter. You’re not more likely to have powerful magic because you’re of a particular religious order. The vast size and amount of crystals, incense, or magic supplies you buy with your hefty bank account doesn’t make you more likely to create influential magic. You don’t have to be raised with a silver spoon in your mouth. I know this cuts the ego of those who think their wealth and status in their religion is what makes them more magical, but the truth is ANYONE can use magic
  2. Expensive supplies are not needed to work magic. While having a massive quartz generator or Crystal ball are beautiful tools, they aren’t required for magic to work. You can work with magic with or without tools. You can use acorns, seeds, string, an old thimble, or a variety of other household items that you have laying around.
  3. There’s no religion on earth that has the corner market on magic. Oh there’s plenty of people who follow strict orders, practices, and rituals. They believe it’s their way or the highway, but their belief doesn’t govern your spiritual practice. You have the complete freedom to create a spiritual practice full of sparkly magic without their control.

So just what is magic and how does one harness it?

The one requirement that I’ve come to understand that’s needed for magic to work is belief. Belief is what brings us hope and hope opens lots of doors for the impossible to become possible. If you believe in magic, then the world is a blank canvas for your creative spark to start igniting your dreams to manifest.

Magic is the intentions you put out, the vibe you’re generating. How you emit that vibe is part of the magic. How you cultivate the spark, how you fan the flame. This is your magic.

This is the basis for working with intuitive arts. All the tools we use are our materials and it’s important to get to know your materials. Know how they work, practice your techniques, and spend time creating. If you’d like to learn more please join one or more of my classes.

Coming Soon

Welcome to Intuitive Home Solutions! My philosophy is that all the best and most important magic in the world begins in our hearts and homes. As humans, we’re always searching for answers. We search for it in money, at work, at school, in others, but far too often we forget that we have all the answers we need. Inside. We’re all born with that spark of inspiration, but too busy looking outward to find it. That spark is our intuition and should we slow down our pursuits in the world for a few moments a day we can hear it speaking to us, calling our names, and enlightening us to unlimited possibilities. The home to our intuition, offering solutions for real life problems. My work in this world is to nudge us closer to discovering our intuitive arts. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
