Psychic protection 101: How to deal with an infestation of parasites

This is the second article on a series on basic psychic protection. There is a lot written about emotional vampires; however, have we ever contemplated another form of parasitism, which is air-borne and invisible. A recent episode with moths and flies inspired me to write this piece, as some of the characteristics and remedies to ridding yourself of these creatures, is very similar to what happens on a psychic plane.

One thing that we never consider when we buy a new house is all the upkeep and maintenance of it while we are gone. We envision the spaciousness, the yard, the dog and the inner decor, but we sometimes forget that other species also want to live with us. Sometimes former occupants; as in haunted residues; and other times, various entities, that enjoy living off our light and energy as sources of food.

One such possibility is hanging around bars, night spots, night clubs, or places where individuals who do drugs, drink, or live a libidinous lifestyle, whether it’s debauchery, excessive eating, sex or spending.

Just as cigarette smoke clings to your clothes and leaves a bad smell, astral parasites love to travel. Hiding in the closet, where you least expect, they quietly wreck havoc on your auric layer, allowing for leakage of energy and

It’s common, for example, for you to go to a party and then experience a strange estrangulation or wrestle with foreign entities that evening. Those are the preliminary signs that a cloying spirit or thought form might have intermingled with your aura, while you were in a state of revelry, whether substance-induced or by proximity. Like seeing one moth, you disregard it, thinking it’s part of your hangover. It’s normal, you think. And even if you wanted to find out, who can you talk to you about such strange phenomena?

You carelessly fling it in your closet of hidden keys and continue on.

Then in a few weeks, you notice more moths coming out of nowhere, buzzing around the lights, that is YOU — and your energy.

They begin as shady acquaintances calling you after the party, inviting you to go to more parties, or seek to come to your home and hang out with you. They see you as innocent blood that they want to violate; almost as if they can relive their purity through yours, they invade your personal boundaries, preying on your desire for power, being different from whom you currently see yourself to be, for experimentation, and your desire for immortality through worldly ambitions and those individuals, whom you think are successful; to mimic their darker sides.

The intoxication is real. For that one night or several early binges, you do experience an otherworldly trip that is entrancing. So much so, that you don’t want to leave; you want to keep doing whatever it is, that brings you to that glorified, extraordinarily colorful state that you normally cannot achieve with your normal senses.

Then it begins to nag you to feed its unhealthier appetites, such as smoking, taking drugs, indulging in bizarre acts of self mutilation, thoughts of depression, anxiety and dread. No sooner than not, if you continue to congregate with such friends, these urges then become habits, and soon these entities not only start to embed themselves in your aura and space, but begin to take over your substance–money, savings, mental and physical energy, and relationships.

Even if you don’t continue, the guilt and shame remain and begin to infest. Then one day weeks later, you go to put on your best self for an interview and you discover an infestation has taken over your closet, and has attacked your best suit, i.e. YOU.

Even if you have none of these thoughts or desires, they still upon occasion show up from being around this atmosphere and these individuals.

What to do

First, we have to understand that empaths are easy targets for parasites, because of our Light. Understanding that, you will understand your proclivity to drawing negative people and situations. Instead of repelling them, they seek to interact with something that causes them to combust and intermingle with your energies.

That said, it’s not enough to be the bright bulb in the group. You must constantly scan your surroundings and body for intrusions. Unlike vampires who use charm and seduction, to infiltrate and drain your energy from these tears, parasites work on a more microscopic level, seeking instead to lay seeds of negativity to weaken the auric fiber and slowly ingest it.

Just as flies seek a watery area to lay eggs, these parasites look for moments when an empath has absorbed too much of the external environment. When you have not sufficient downtime to tease through your interlacing webs, these critters can nest larvae in the interstices. Unknowingly, if you are not teasing your layers apart regularly to cleanse you chakras, they can bulk up the vortices and cause tears and bulges and congested areas.

As earlier discussed, they are like negligence. A slippage here, a weakened will there; just one drink, one more swipe on the credit card, one unforeseen wanton escape, and little by little, an addiction forms, whereby the parasite, which now has grown into an attachment to the etheric body, slowly poisons the rest of the system and urges the individual to sink deeper into the habit until it becomes a permanent, hardened part of the whole.

Visualization and the Higher Force

Your number one weapon is your mind. When you are in a relaxed state, you can see yourself objectively, and tease apart these intermingled layers. Sending light is a common antidote. Invoking God or a Higher presence either by word or through silent prayer, can help push out the invading energy.

Visualizing a vacuum sucking the varmints and its larvae out of your space is the most effective. This requires the vigilant body scanning and invoking of a higher energy to assist in the removal of foreign thought forms and entities that do not belong. Regular and repeated, auric photos and cleansing thus helps ensure they will not come back once the body has been cleansed.

Salts, Oils and Vinegar

Salt baths and essential oil mists

Lower vibrational thought forms are easily repelled by certain essential oils and vibrational elixirs. When you feel overwhelmed, it is a good time to take a bath with Epsom salts, Himalayan salts or sea salt. Salt traditionally has been used by all traditions to stabilize and ground energies. When soaking in salt or vinegar, it is good to imagine the debris lifting and untangling its tentacles from your form, and then adhering to the salt, or other basic form, away from you.

Essential oils, such as lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus and frankincense, also can remove entities. They need to be dissolved in solution, so when it is sprayed into the aura, it can diffuse whatever inharmonious blockages or attachments, and repel them from the auric body.

Just as we drink acetic water to cleanse our digestive system, we can spritz this into our body to unclog the foreign debris on our auric walls.

Cutting ties to negative influences

Knowing is not enough. We must end associations with people who are negative, bring us down, complain, and harbor a loser attitude toward life. We can’t let them coexist with us. Sometimes they are family members. Other times they are friends that we tolerate because we are lonely.

You are who you associate with. If your friends are leading you down a path of destructive or simply not constructive toward your self improvement regime, it’s time to cut the cords. These parasites infiltrate through ears and eyes. They spread gossip, talk behind your back, create situations where you are slighted to suit their egos, and continually put you down.

One moth lays thousands of negative eggs in and around you that then multiply and distract you to no end with their destruction. Spend less time with them. Distance yourself and even cut ties if you must. You are who you spend time with. Don’t let these individuals bad habits become yours.

 

Store your treasures in bulletproof casing

Lastly, protect your soul by fortifying the aura with regular exercises to keep it vibrant and healthy. Knowing that parasites can eat through any thin membranes, we have to stop leaving our treasures out in the open or unsealed. This requires that we review all the areas of our life that we leave vulnerable to energy thieves and identity theft.

It is hard work ensuring our body and mind are nourished with the right ingredients to function at its optimum. The purity of such, can so easily be soiled by their proximity to trash on the Internet, books, friends, and corrosive elements. We have to replace some of our storage containers from flimsy plastic bags to glass mason jars with airtight seals, from porous sacks to covered tins and dry storage rooms.

Thus we should strengthen the Metal around our body and environment. On the surface level, that would mean the amount of gold we might wear. On a deeper level, it means we have to sharpen our tongues and be prepared to defend our boundaries from encroachment by loafers and those who want to take advantage of our virtuous nature. If being assertive is difficult for you, read a book or take a course to strengthen these psychic protection skills. They will keep us from being over sympathetic in situations that may harm or tip the balance of fair exchange against us.

Keep clean

Lastly, don’t wander around places that are spiritually unclean or continue practicing arts or reading books about rituals to tap unsafe, discarnate energies; or objects. You are only inviting in trouble. Once they see that you are willing to commingle with them, they shall seek to stay forever; and bring more friends.

The only antidote is what you fill your mind. Prayer and sacred meditation on higher thoughts and behaviors strengthen the auric body against ill will and evil influences. As you gain strength, the higher the tests. So be prepared. Your armor should be your infilling of a Higher Presence to restore and protect you, and should be reinforced with daily meditation of the thoughts and habits of righteous actions and living.

Psychic protection 101: How to clean up, emotional sponges

As we promised, the next few weeks will focus on psychic protection.

The first order is addressing those of you who are psychic sponges. Many empaths have a tendency to not only take in information, but also absorb it for later processing and healing.

For those who do not know what an emotional sponge, and are uncertain if you are one, the following questions might help:

  • Do you take on the feelings of others?
  • When a coworker or neighbor shared their negative stories, do you absorb their negativity? feel exhausted? Or take on their trauma and stress?
  • Do you find yourself often depressed?  Easily drained in crowds?
  • Do you fear being overwhelmed in relationships?
  • Do you see to need more quiet time than others?
  • Do you subconsciously overindulge in food, drugs or alcohol to cope?
  • Do you suffer from physical symptoms that are difficult to diagnose medically?

If you’ve answered yes to more than 5 of these questions, changes are you are a finely tuned psychic instrument that requires frequent re-balancing and sometimes cleansing.

In Common with Physical Sponges

Many empaths resemble sponges in that we tend to wash others clean through the process of our concerned listening, analysis, sifting through their undigested emotions, trash, congested grease of heavy emotions that cause auric blockages and stuck patterns. In the process of conversing, or even being in the same environment, we can look like a dirty sponge by the end of the day.

Most people throw away sponges when they been used and no longer have abrasiveness. That acute sharpness in an emotional empath is akin to our energy, including our insights, mental acuity, inner radiance, emotional fortitude, resilience, unlimited ability to renewal through spiritual power, physical vitality and strength.

Another kind of sponge is a vampire, who also have enormous appetite for absorbing, channeling, transforming and manipulating the life force of others. Because of their negative behaviors; however, vampires are individuals who use their magic to ill will. Because of their destructive tendencies, they do not face the truth about themselves and work with their own abilities. Instead, they consistently use their abilities to prey on others; for the attention and illusion of power it gives them.

soap the sponge

Soaping; or the psychic equivalent of taking baths in epsom salts, are simply not enough.

Because the sponge is always warm, moist and flecked with food, it is an ideal breeding ground for microbes — both physical and energetic. As with the table below, the aura, which is a porous membrane like a sponge, may be filled with all types of parasites; holes; tears; as well as unhealthful sludge after repeated breakdown and use.

How to keep emotional sponges clean

squeeze the sponge

There is no option for people to microwave an emotional sponge; just as a physical sponge to kill the microbes. However, there is the possibility of keeping a sponge cleaner by rinsing with more than plain water.

As with physical sponges, you must take care to kill the germs or Negativity that you’ve picked up, by regularly rinsing unwanted thought forms, negative self-images and self-talk and unprocessed emotions by eliminating foreign energies from the aura. The “bleach” equivalent includes bathing regularly in Light; taking Himalayan pink or sea salt baths; to applying aura spray made of essential oils, such as lime, lemon, or juniper regularly to yourself and your aura with as far as an arm’s distance from your arms. Drinking 9-12 glasses of water also helps.

Control your negative thoughts

Even though we are sensitive, we are not as helpless as think. Most situations call for us to step outside of our victimhood (and into our Higher Self). Practicing detachment allows us to witness our circumstances and choose out thoughts. For instance, if we decide that this is perpetual situation of bad luck; that dark umbrella will follow us wherever we go.

Even with protection (like that of an umbrella), some of us still rain down on our own parades.

We start down a dark spiral when we feel sorry for ourselves and start calling upon our past history as a source for our misery. Once we start injuring ourselves with negative self-talk, we automatically surrender to the situation and stop seeing solution. Internally, we also create conditions that rob us of our joy.

It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, this is where it’s necessary to short-circuit that negativity thought stream, because it will bring the worst upon us if we keep focusing on “what we don’t want,” if we remain in our comfort zone with our arms crossed. A negative loop feeds upon itself, and when we are in that emotional state, we are apt to create more chaos.

We need to step aside, take a deep breath and indeed, ask whether it’s as bad as it looks. Usually, it isn’t. But our mental state is such that we see only the overwhelm (and work involved), and not the blessing in disguise. Once we say to ourselves, “I can handle this,” or “I own this problem; I am going to own the solution.” Things then shift to a different line of thinking.

We don’t always have to reach for the ax to kill the flea, so-to-speak; or jump to conclusions that something is always out of our control, even if they are demonic or Negative in nature.  As a wise man always said, “If you weren’t powerful enough, no one would seek after you.” In this generation, so many lightworkers are targeted for the simple reason that they have come here to free the earth from negativity. Some people were born with implants; others experience multiple attacks along the way. This wasn’t meant to be a curse or big boulder in the way of your plans. In a higher sense, it’s meant to train you for helping yourself transform the density and help others beyond it. Therefore, own that power and create a different destiny for yourself.  Even, as we go through the grief, anger, resentment and pain, there is a cleansing in the end, and we are going to be that much stronger for it.

Archaeological record and water 

This is the fourth and final psychic blog on water.  Given that I studied archaeology, I want to give an account of what I studied and how highly concentrated forms of positive intention affects the body and immortal soul. I coin this #soularchaeology, as this is the best way to describe the type of scientific investigation I undertook in my early 20's. #telepathynation #water #earth #remnants #evidence #lifetimes #thinking #intentions #meditations #practices #transmission #ideology #religion #transfer #cultural #monks #Buddhism #crystals #mantras; for if we follow our highest aspirations, we are meant to return to #Light rather than #ashes; and now there is physical proof of the long-term benefits of so-called "right actions and thinking."

First, let me say that this blog is more speculative in nature than an exhaustive study. It's my reflection on what I observed, however simplistic, and some of validating evidence in the material record. On the basis that we are almost 70% comprised of water (per the chart below), the medium, by which we exist, memories and feelings, long after they have been expressed.

img_9037-1

How do we know this? Cursorily speakily, I refer back to the groundbreaking work by Japanese scientist, Emoto.

On a microscopic level we can see structuring that thoughts that promote harmony and beauty tend to have a higher, more stable geometric structure than more dissonant, chaotic thoughts. Consciousness and intentions, therefore, as evidenced by the crystalline structure in water when frozen. Primaily a researcher and photographer, Emoto conducted studies with almost 2000 people, asking them to concentrate on feelings of gratitude towards stored water, and published the results of their microscopic structure of the before and after changes, in 2008, in the Journal of Scientific Exploration, a peer reviewed scientific journal of the Society for Scientific Exploration. As you can see below, the gratitude-focused crystals were rated slightly more "beautiful" than one set of control crystals, and slightly less "beautiful" than the other controls. img_2907

 

His quest was to see if polluted waters could be cleansed by prayer and positive visualization. He also believed in using ultraviolet radiation and sound frequencies to heal water. At any rate, believe what you will, his work is the foundation of a much needed investigation in the energetic frequencies of all living things. Following the nuclear contamination of the Fukushima incident in 2008, his inquiry obviously were a direct response to the most dire of human conditions.

Jumping forward, let's ask a different question… what are crystals and how do differ from other living organisms? According to the Department of Crystallography and Structural Biology of the Madrid, Spain-based institute Higher Council for Scientific Investigations (CSCI)'s website, http://www.csic.es/:

"A crystal is a material whose constituents, such as atoms, molecules or ions, are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure. These constituents are held together by interatomic forces (chemical bonds) such as metallic bonds, ionic bonds, covalent bonds, van der Waals bonds, and others.

The crystalline state of matter is the state with the highest order, ie, with very high internal correlations and at the greatest distance range. This is reflected in their properties: anisotropic and discontinuous. Crystals usually appear as unadulterated, homogenous and with well-defined geometric shapes (habits) when they are well-formed. However, as we say in Spanish, "the habit does not make the monk" (clothes do not make the man) and their external morphology is not sufficient to evaluate the crystallinity of a material."

When I was an intern at the Smithsonian's Conservation Analytical Laboratory, my first month was solidly focused on scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and other techniques, for studying the chemical composition of inorganic materials. While we did not take SEM photographs to understand microscopic structure, as so much as we needed to evaluate age and corrosion on artifacts.

Sarira, the Miracle of Buddhist Human Crystals

During the time I was focused on ancient glass from the early Han to Tang dynasties in China. Glass is a purely Western/Islamic and Scythian/Indo European phenomenon. For it to turn up in East Asia was direct evidence of cultural transfer, as the technology existed for glaze on porcelain, but not develop beads, canes or glass objects, as it did in ancient civilizations in the middle East. Moreover, there was a more personal reason for studying glass and crystalline objects. My grandmother was a Buddhist nun. One of the things she always stressed to me was the reciting of a mantra on a rosary. It took me on a journey to understand beads and relic worship.

Apparently, part of the miracles and superhuman powers of Buddhism is the ability to transport the soul after death, among others.

Sarira is the Sanskrit word for “body” (शरीर), but it can refer to any number of relics like teeth or parts of Buddha's skull, which serve as evidence to the crystalline substances that remain after a respected Buddhist's corpse is burnt. The first instance of relic worship stems from how six clans and a king found over the remains of Gautama Buddha after he was cremated. According to Mahaoarinibbana Sutta, the body and ashes were divided into ten portions, and encased in a pot. Later these were enshrined in a stupa, a monument to store the relics; sometimes, it is just a jewel encrusted box, a glass bottle, and other times, it is a casket or structure. Another historical record known as the Ashokavadana recounts how the relics were dug up by Ashoka, divided into 84,000 portions and housed in the same number of stupas. Despite the despair of these monuments, pilgrims from afar came to worship and visit these stupas, giving rise to local leaders and spreading the dharma throughout China, Japan, and all parts of Asia.

Quora contributor Josh Buurman (Dec. 22, 2014) postulates that esteemed monks leave crystalline-type pearls in their ashes for two reasons:

"1. The traditional one that those monks purified themselves and this results in small changes in body chemistry resulting in relics forming.
2. The other one is more down to earth, though the traditional might work together with this. Many times the funeral (cremation) of a monk is something different from the cremation of ordinary people. The pyre is often much larger and of different material. I recall that there are special instructions but can't find a reference right now.

On top of this, once a monk is considered a well established one (let alone an arahant) people will come search the remaining pieces and keep them in good faith. There are accounts that the relics only changed appearances later, not directly. With ordinary people this does not happen, we sweep the dust, put the ashes in an urn (I doubt the larger parts will be there, not sure) and that's it."

There are also articles quoted, such as the NIH 1995 study, published in Forensic Sc. Investigations, by JL Holden, PP Phaley and JP Clemen, about the possible re-crystallization of organic matter after being burned over 24 hours; however, none of these used actual monk remains. Good theory, but tested on ordinary individuals, ages 1-95, to test what temperature bones melts and if age can be determined from the remains through SEM and microradiography. 

The Epoch Times is Chinese-language newspaper found in 2000 on the premise of making known mainland China's persecution of the spiritual group Falun Gong, a movement that combines Buddhism, Taoism and the beliefs of its founder Li Hongzhi. Their coverage is more broad-based and better researched. The miracle is: 

  • "The substance is thought to be accumulated from other realms, to be not quite of this world."
  • "It has long been held in Buddhist tradition that accomplished monks accumulate a substance in their bodies that ordinary people do not."

Also, in its presence one feels a Oneness or a Consciousness from the remains that is unworldly that even researchers from Stanford led by William A. Tiller, PhD, tried to substantiate and measure the energy of sarira. It is more likely than not, that sarira is heavily protected in the Buddhist sphere. When an esteemed monk is cremated, the remains and photographed, measured and documented. Never offered to science for verification; for they are sacred and would be destroyed in the analytical process. This, I can vouch for, having worked with respected institutions, museums and religious societies in the preservation of their relics.

At any rate the relics have been heavily imprinted with intention. So much so that they can produce miracles in their presence; and when not respected or cared for, mysteriously will disappear. Obviously, there also is the possibility of miracles happening due to the power that worshippers project onto to relics. However, as of this date, there is no substantive proof; except to say, that the deltrons, or intermediaries spaces between electric atom/molecules of these objects are highly ordered in order to maintain a crystalline-like substance even after cremation.

While neuroscientists are only scratching the surface in the health benefits of ancient Vedic practices, this article is meant to elaborate the results of the highest aspiring devotees. Many writers observe that we are soon to become crystalline and return to the Light. Indeed, this lineage of highly esteemed monks shows that it is possible through their transmigration and change from organic to a more cohesive structure. 
 

 

 

 

Take your pleasure seriously

In 2014 I lost my best friend and cousin Cathy Chiu to stage 4 cancer. We were shocked. Not only did we think she was improving, but we actually saw dozens of photos on Facebook of her enjoying life with her family in Singapore and Hawaii three weeks before her death.

#telepathynation #reflections #death #lessons #life #sacralchakra #water #selfworth #manifestation #lawofattraction #soul #sacrifice #honesty #hidden #forgiveness #expectations #cancer

In 2010 I spent two years overseas with my cousin, so I know her like a second sister. She might be in tremendous physical pain but she forced herself to look happy for the sake of others: her mom, our grandmother, her kids, her customers, etc.

One instance that exemplifies this behavior was when she received a health department notice about her restaurant kitchen. She was being fined hundreds of dollars, to which probably to you and me, would make us tear our hair out and worry. But I remember her clearly that day. She took the notice and shoved it in her purse, saying, "It's only money. There are bigger things to think about."

We thought she meant other management issues.

Little did we realize that she was planning for her pending death, secretly arranging the sale of properties for her mom and children's benefit, meanwhile going through multiple anticancer treatments.

She was the type of person you always looked up to, and felt was your best friend. Even if you've only eaten at her restaurant once. She smiled and joked, and entertained so many, despite the physical and financial burdens that must've weighed on her mind, that you would never know how much she suffered inside.


It has been three years she has been gone. Today is her birthday, and she would've been 52 years old; and on this occasion, where I've had my first vacation in three years, I reminisce about how grateful I was to have spent time with her.

I reminisce about buying her these expensive but fun waterproof sandals that looked like duck feet. I reminisce about all the car trips we took to Yangming-san, a mountainous retreat, to look at the city from above, and all the times she treated me to buffets on her special hotel club card.

When I was in Taiwan I never felt lonely because there was always her, along with students, classmates and roommates, to cook interesting dishes for. I remember her telling me how happy she was, to be served instead of doing the food serving.

During that time, I enjoyed the lavish things we did, even as I couldn't afford them. Looking back, that may have been foolish. But being able to be equal and give something back to her was important; and it made her feel less of a caretaker.

My cousin was my rock. Through my own health crises, panic attacks, money worries, family problems, she was this immense "Buddha-like" sponge that could absorb it all, and reflect to you: "It'll pass; I've been there." (And yet her experience would be 1000x worse.)
Sometimes strong people are their worst enemies. They don't allow people to see their vulnerabilities and let them shoulder the pain. When she passed, I knew she had been lying and hiding it from the rest of the family to prevent them from worrying.


Lessons learned: self esteem, life's pleasures, sense of womanhood, emotions

This is what I learned from her. She was a student of positive manifestation, and was a creative entrepreneur, having read books on abundance and successful living. I will post shots of her creative vision, Gusto Restaurant, in Taipei, Taiwan, to give you an idea of how brilliant she was.

She always lectured her mom and me about the importance of eating, drinking, sleeping, dressing and living well. "This is how you tell yourself you're worthy of the money that has yet to become attracted to you," she said.

Indeed, she was right.

This is coming from not a profligate spender, but from someone who was prudent enough to manage her mom's business out of bankruptcy at age 23, and who ran successful businesses for 20 years. In addition being a good manager, she was a good mom and beautiful person.

The only thing she couldn't do through manifestation work, though, was undo the damage done by her husband's sexual infidelity. They were high school sweethearts and married not shortly after graduation. Both hardworking, my cousin in law came from worse means, but he rose to the occasion by becoming a successful manager in China's largest shipping conglomerate. That said, he often traveled alone to do his work, and eventually fell in love with a prostitute and got her pregnant. This news alone was a complete affront to my cousin, who turned into a self-sacrificing and dutiful housewife after marriage.

She eventually forgave him, even after he left the woman. But she refused any attempts at reconciliation. Even after the divorce, she didn't accept alimony. She only wanted to end things peacefully for the sake of the children. Yet, I know, from having spent time with her and her children, that there were many years of sleeping in the cellar of her kitchen as a temporary home, before she would even ask for assistance from anyone. She raised her own money to start her restaurant, and schmoozed her way to becoming one of Taipei's best known Spanish restaturants, overcoming the obstacle of being tucked away in an alleyway no one normally go to, in one of the city's swankiest districts.

"Before the divorce I didn't think I had it within me," I recall her saying.

"But afterwards, I saw it was a good thing, because it saved me from myself, from being just a mom. Women should be independent. Never to sacrifice everything for the family like I did, because look at what happened.

"When you don't value yourself, your husband will leave you for someone that does."

That realization hit me hard. No one would think my cousin (this successful entrepreneur) would have been just a dumpy old housewife. Ever. She dressed well; she was always cheerful, and she was so glamorous, men always hit on her when she took excursions to China to see her ex-husband and daughter.

It was unfathomable. On the outside she lived the perfect life. On the inside, she hid so many truths.

I always wondered why she got into the cosmetic surgery business in mainland China and Taiwan, even though she already had a successful restaurant. Then I realized in listening to her stories, these women (like her) all believe something about them is still not good enough. Many of them are actresses, prostitutes, women who rely solely on their external appearance to survive. She told me how she found solace in helping these women. It wasn't a love of the products or procedures; or the desire to be beautiful herself, although, that was part of it in the beginning. It ended up helping her develop empathy for the other side: the woman her husband left her for. Somehow she needed to see firsthand, the cruelty of being beautiful to make a living, in order to come to peace with what had been done to her marriage.

Unfortunately, that forgiveness came too late. The cancer ran its course, while she was on a three week break from radiation therapy. She came down with something, and within days, she was dead.

How to heal the water (or sacral) chakra

She died when I was back in the States, and on my sophomore year of running my own business. Living with her for two years was the best preparation for running it, because I got used to the cycle of going to work in the late morning and weekends, being free for 60% of your time, and making my life about life entertainment. I was prepared for the rigors of entrepreneurship from listening to her complain.

If there was anything that I could've done differently, it would've been to have indulged her in taking a vacation to Italy. At the time I had a timeshare but I didn't have the means financially to buy the airplane ticket or spend the time off from work. Several times we tried to book it, but, like some other moneymaking schemes undertaken by my cousin, better opportunities in Asia always turned up, and she scurried away to make money, first.

I really regret that, because taking my family on vacation was the whole point of my buying (and paying off the mortgage on the timeshare for 15 years). Now every time someone passes away, even my dad, who is a scrupulous saver, would say, "Let's take a trip. Or let's spend some money or eat that. How many more days can you enjoy life?" The money that was so important and that we all worked to accumulate, isn't going with you.

I know that's a whole different mindset for some of you, but maybe one worth taking into consideration.

To heal the water chakra, look at what you blame yourself for. When events happen in your life, whether as a result of your doing or not, accept the reality that things happen and forgive yourself. By letting go of the emotional baggage, we can release guilt and other issues, blocking us from the true enjoyment of life.

In my cousin's case, she tried but never got over the failure of her marriage. Having gone to Catholic school, she had concepts about her sexuality that prevented her from getting over failed attempts at relationships with new partners, that turned her mind off to new opportunities, despite how beautiful she was; and in general, hampered a search for a new husband. She also put herself in a role that required so much responsibility that she couldn't take time off to heal that wounded aspects of her identity.

Other ways to balance this chakra include:

  • Learning to open the hip area, doing yoga or other calisthenics;
  • Engaging in free movement or dance;
  • Visualizing orange — eating, absorbing, wearing and infusing yourself, in this color;
  • Keeping the other chakras balanced; and
  • Letting go of any unnecessary baggage, emotional or physical, that cloud or poison your environment, thoughts and, ultimately, your body.

Conclusion

Despite all the trials and tribulations in our lives, the gift of a physical body is more than what hundreds of thousands of disembodied spirits have. All of them wish, if they could do it again, to have lived differently, knowing what they know now after death. Had they known about the possible toxicity of their thoughts and inclinations, perhaps they wouldn't let themselves harbor them. So learn from this story and resolve to take your pleasure seriously. We never know when it'll be someone's or out last breath on Earth.

Psychic detox and water

Well, despite myself, I’m doing well on my sleep and detox diet. Most of us who are empathic really struggle with pesky weight gain for sometimes frustrating reasons. Here’s what I’ve learned about myself as an emotional sponge, and how to wring myself clean of energy every 6-7 weeks. (2 of 2)

What I learned about good health, I learned from Nicole Ronsard, a Frenchwoman who wrote a book about cellulite, which focuses on good circulation and avoiding certain polluting foods.

 and my grandmother always got up at 4 am to do yoga and start chanting and reading her scriptures. She always said, drink lots of water.

Why water is important to me

Most days when I am traveling or talking to people I can pick up as much as 15 pounds of energy, from interacting with people and the new environment. I’ll feel really tired.

Clogged: a better word for how it feels. Like a blender trying to grind up too many dense ingredients at the same time. Or like a train carrying too many cars, trying to pull uphill.

Yesterday, I was achy and tired; I even thought I was coming down with an autoimmune disease. I started drinking coffee with different Omega creamers earlier this year, hoping that would help, but it hasn’t. Significantly, that is. This Friday, I felt so run down, it was like I had aged 20 years. I didn’t understand why my coworker, who is the same age as me and who even gets less sleep than I do, was fine; although, of course, he doesn’t come into the office every day, and he’s not build like a sponge, absorbing vibrations.

In Chinese astrology my elements together can be summarized as “Big Water.” Like the ocean I’m a huge empathic sponge: I am all about sucking up energy and cleansing it. It’s how I’m built, energetically.

When I see myself getting bloated, I know I’m processing huge amounts of information and experiences. According to scientists we are composed of 72% of water. For those of us that are either psychic, water signs or naturally empathic, we tend to absorb in excess of that amount from our surroundings, making us feel heavy, overwhelmed and confused.

You know when it becomes problematic when your mind turns over and over on thoughts that are, sometimes, not yours. Or when the emotional drive/fire to do something becomes literally watered by Negativity (fear, anxiety and other projections, sometimes not our own).

Recently I took Grandma’s advice and started drinking lots water; specifically, Kangen water(1), because it is non-fluoride and is alkaline; and vegetable smoothies or brothy vegetable soups made with it. Below is a list of its benefits. 

If you can’t afford Kangen water, you can make your own alkaline water with #Himalayansalt or purchase other brands in a higher end supermarket.

I was totally amazed, because I haven’t been to the gym for three weeks and I have been eating pizza, bread and other crap, such as sugary coffee drinks, which I shouldn’t have, in the last few days. Yet the weight just peeled off in the morning, as if I were flushing the contents of my stomach.

How to lube up your internal engine

In the beginning I drank a tall glass of water with apple cider vinegar, #Himalayansalt, lemon or cayenne pepper, before bed and in the morning, consistently for three months. This increased the need to urinate but drinking so much made me aware of myself as a big container of water. If you’re not complicated by an unhealthy body or prescription drugs, when you are filled to capacity, you will feel it and your body will automatically send a signal to your brain to purge what is no longer necessary for it, without your consciously deciding what that should be.

All you have to do is focus on drinking enough of the right pH water.


Knowing my water is naturally alkaline, I essentially took care of 72% of my body, preventing parasites, and other harmful microcosms to grow.

I find that even people who religiously read labels, or are vegetarian, can still be fat. Either they don’t drink enough water, or they miss sleep, which creates an unnatural drive to eat to restore energy; they do not get sufficient exercise; and/or they simply don’t look at the quantity (or total caloric content) of the supposedly healthy foods they are eating. Sometimes it is those dull veggies or egg whites that need to be dressed up with a multitude of ingredients, that raises the caloric count to 500 calories per serving.

You have to be honest with yourself. Drinking lots of water won’t solve all your weight problems. You still have to be aware of what you put into yourself. Calories-wise, portion-wise, and energy-wise. However, once you cleanse yourself through hydration and energetically, automatically your system will start rejecting the garbage for you, regardless of whether the source is physical or emotional.

Turning OFF fully
Whenever I am overeating it is often due to lack of sleep; or trying to soothe emotional aggravation.


I try to rest my mind and go the bed early. But it’s not easy.

Even in sleep I’m traveling astrally and working. On some mornings I will feel more tired if I’ve had heavy dreams or done a lot of energetic work in another realm. I have to realize that, and try not to overstimulate myself with TV, negative stories, Facebook conversations, or upsetting information about relationships or work. During the summer months I also switch to green tea to get off unnatural stimulants that will keep me from getting sufficient sleep.

Since I am results oriented, I have a driven personality, whether it is a project that needs to be executed; or it is a client that I am in the middle of analyzing, witnessing and feeling empathically.  Unlike my Grandma who lived an ascetic life, I have bills to pay; chores; cleaning and other responsibilities to family, pets and friends. It’s common to experience worry and anxiety from daily living that make complete rest, illusive.

In order to really get sleep then, I have to find ways to physically shut off and mentally close down projects by writing my worries down; or simply, being more focused during the peak hours of 10AM-1PM, dealing with business (annoying realities, contract details, incorrect accounting errors, insurance, boring but calamitous cash reconciliations, etc.), as well as do the metaphysical work of helping others.

Facing your problems (and not procrastinating too long on decisions) is the only way to put them to rest. It literally is like clearing the mind/body computer of the trash in its memory. Once the relevant information has been understood, it can either be deleted or stored elsewhere for future reference.

It’s chipping away at the glacier of your life plan. Two to three issues per day; no more.

When I am handling all aspects of life, I can drop as much as 4-8 lbs in any eight hour rest period. It happens no matter how poorly I eat, or how little exercise I do.

By drinking lots of water and getting quality sleep, after six months my body now tells me when how much fluid to drink and forces me to detox faster.

I’m sure there is a more scientific explanation, but for now I’m just reporting my results for and from my personal understanding.

Words and water

This is the first part of a series of water-inspired posts. First, a lot of new thinking has come from the confirmation of Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist, that everything, from what we put inside, include the thoughts we tell ourselves, have a physical impact on our cellular make-up.

It’s hard to let go of inner demons; they were holding you when no one else would

There are many articles on psychic protection and negativity, but sometimes the one thing we neglect to look at is the negativity within us. When we protect ourselves, we also protect the old patterns and ways of doing things; some of behaviors comfort us long after we have tried to eliminate them, such as smoking, overeating, gambling, overspending, other physical indulgences and unusual relationships with spirits and entities when we are lonely.

Six years ago I was talking to my Pakistani partner in Taiwan. A strange woman came into his coffee shop and started talking animatedly about feeling touched intimately at night by unseen forces and occasionally having erotic dreams. When we looked into it, it appeared that that the apartment she recently moved into had an apparition, a man that killed himself in the building. Apparently he hadn’t left and, through this woman’s curiosity, started haunting her. She had lost weight, was starting to get depressed and didn’t have a job. We gave her the water test and indeed the negativity was rampant.

While we could cleanse the apartment, something about the woman’s behavior triggered us. My partner consulted his healing family in Pakistan and we found that she was the one summoning the ghost, as it provided endless hours of fascination and chat for her. In her loneliness, SHE was the one keeping it housebound, to which we threw up our hands and resigned the assignment.


In many instances, as much as people say they want to release their inner demons, once they are free of them they don’t know what to do with the free time, the lightness or the inability to block off unpleasant feelings. Things might go well for a few months. Then the spirit returns and speaks to them, and if the individual has not looked at the pattern and/or relationship with a strong desire to leave it, it isn’t hard for them to be deceived back into the relationship with their demons again. It could be for as stupid a reason as revenge, vanity, desire for power, or company while lost and lonely, as the story above.

How do you know when your inner demons are back

Your habits become slack. Sometimes you become overly or under-concerned about your physical appearance and hygiene. You grow depressed and start having negative mental dialogues that seem abusive or forceful rather than calm and encouraging. You’re drawn back into self-destructive binges — and inappropriate excesses, that bring you in a cycle of self-hatred and pessimism. Often there is a complete personality change. In some cases, this is involuntary; in others, it’s accompanied by a self-induced belief that an individual is becoming his favorite icon and transcending his previous personality.

Nonphysical demons are no less different than living demons. They are charming. They ply us with flattery, lies and false promises when we are weak; and they never leave us alone even when we ask them to leave. They will keep tempting us, especially during holidays and just as we are almost done letting them go. They keep us in neverending mental dialogues of past memories and unresolved angst.

Frequenting hot spots, picking up unexpected guests

Especially if you still visit etheric hot zones, such as graveyards, bars, war zones, and sites of fatal accidents. When I was an archaeologist, I used to have constant run-ins with disincarnate human entities. You can feel them by cold it makes your skin run; and they are as real as being in a room with a corpse. It is an unpleasant feeling, and if you do not have a spiritual practice where you can invoke a Higher Power to dispel them, they can attach to your aura. We’ve had several clients, who, after visiting battle sites, have come in for consultations. At first, some seem like friendly ghosts; hiding in a vulnerable form, but then bring in a host of other negative energies.

Why healing sometimes is not a one-shot deal?

In many addiction cases, the pain is real, hidden and brings up shame. It’s not a mechanical process that releases the trauma but the acceptance of others that frees people from the long term suffering. Understanding (and reclaiming parts of the memory that have been pushed out of consciousness) takes time and careful excavation of the soul layers; it sometimes even takes years, depending on how ingrained the pattern has been, and it also takes time, supported by a thoughtful counselor/partner, to help the individual learn and stabilize new healthier behaviors.

Sometimes the hardest part lies in finding the right environment to articulate the plausible causes of trauma, as Western society sometimes does not have a sufficient vocabulary to describe the strange, eery hauntings and inner turmoil. Practitioners in the West tend to invalidate the experiences of the paranormal; rather than examine it for what the individual is going through in his or her as a result of their ancestral lines or  current lifetime lessons.



The other reason: releasing demons is a stubborn affair

Not all wounds are visible; they are hidden, and only haunt us in moments of solitude. We sometimes have given up on clearing our demons, because we have, for such a long time, slowly become ingrained with their negative behaviors and now don’t know how to exist with these crutches. That, they go unperceived and silent, makes them a deadly killer.

Slowly but surely, you are dying inside but there are visible signs of struggle or difficulty to the outside world. This is most common of long-term anxiety, depression and a host of other self-destructive habits and tendencies.

Therefore, when you seek treatment do not distress if you suddenly relapse back into old behaviors. It’s more common that you think. Sometimes it takes 16 relapses before you finally find the stress to leave the oppressor of your tortured soul. Sometimes, like me, it takes 17 years to heal certain deep-rooted mindsets inherited through your ancestral line.

It’s hard to let go of inner demons; when they were holding you when no one else would. 

Before you embark on any particular program, you should be prepared to look at your own thoughts (and how they contribute to a negative state). Often when we attribute the Negativity to forces outside ourselves, we neglect to rinse our own inner cup of energies (and behaviors that keep us stuck in unproductive mental states of suffering).

This isn’t an article to go into the various kinds of spirit attachments but to explain that it is as common to catch a demonic being as it is to catch a physical pathogen, such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites. If your motives are not entirely healthy, no amount of regular, self-monitoring routine for spiritual and mental hygiene can remove what you are unwilling to let go of.

When you are ready to let them go, stop talking to them. It’s as simple as that, but it could be difficult if you have no one else.

In the next few weeks, we will provide posts about psychic protection that might work for you if you are ready to step into a new self.

Your body’s energetic outlets (or batteries)

Every evolving individual needs to learn how to clear and cleanse their #chakras. #energy #aura #telepathynation

What is a chakra?

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Literally translated from the Hindi it means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex like, powerhouse of energy. Within our bodies you have seven of these major energy centres and many more minor ones.

Your heart and my heart are old friends

This morning while working out, I was introduced to another woman, and she immediately declared, “I know you.” We racked brains together to figure out how but couldn’t come up with how. I laughed and thought, this is hilarious. It’s Valentine’s Day and it’s time to write about an age old favorite, the “old soul.”

How do you know a stranger when you never met them?

The soul is ageless. Unlike our physical body it transcends time. As we go from one incarnation to another, we fall asleep to our previous lifetimes and part of an Infinite Consciousness, and start over in a new body. 

Many of the new children (those born after 1970)—crystal, indigos, rainbow, etc. –remember who they once were, because we have made it acceptable to remember these lifetimes, and welcome these children as bearers of light to remind us; however, most of us who are older have been conditioned to suppress and deny these memories.

Recovering lost memories

One of the first things my teacher did with me when we started working together was: she made me recall my childhood memories. She rolled the film, as if she and I were passive observers watching a movie, and she bore witness to some of my deepest secrets and mystical moments. As if we were time travelers, we went back to a grove of trees when I was five years old in Longwood Gardens, Pa. A family friend was getting married, and I remember getting lost and feeling sad that day. Even though I was a little girl, I experienced her happy day with a flush of other memories from another experience that was so vivid, I felt so much older than my 5 year old body; and, true to date, these past life experiences have kept me from being married. 

Another time I remember daydreaming in my dad’s station wagon, and looking up into the clouds, I could interpret the formations, and downloaded memories so sophisticated, I felt like I knew my purpose and told myself that in this lifetime, it’d be better to be intelligent than beautiful. There was more information than that, but those moments faded as I didn’t know how to record them and when around adults that treat you like a child, you learn act in accordance to the societal role and the memories get pushed back and forgotten.

And that is why it’s so important to interact with others. Whatever your religious beliefs, we never stop running into people that remind us of who we are from some unknown connection that is unexplainable. Sort of like a déjà vu or parental figure or person from a recurring dream. If you believe that the soul migrates upon physical death, then the possibility of past lives makes a lot of sense; for there are moments of recognition that we can neither explain or logically understand with our human minds, but their interaction with us, help us recover lost pieces of our journey that we need to reclaim in order to become Whole. This relates to friends, teachers, coaches, strangers as well as lovers, and thus we can call any one a soul mate. 

How do we recognize our soul mates?

A soul mate is a person that shares a common bond with you for the purpose of growing. It could be sister, a friend, a pet or a lover. Usually the bond is instinctual. You might even experience greater harmony with those outside your ethnic and family group. Sometimes you feel drawn to different time periods and cultures for no reason. Sometimes there is so much commonality that there almost seems no need to talk or overly explain. They somehow know us, as if we are two peas in a pod. There is no explaining why you both are so close, but it appears that in spite of outward differences, there are many deep ways this person mirrors some of our best and worst traits. 

If you have been around for many lifetimes, you begin to see people and immediately place them into archetypes — whether it is a four or five element astrological system, an animal totem, a fairy or crystal or mineral. As Steven Bancarz explains in his The Mind Journal article entitled, “Five things only old souls can fully understand,” “this is because you have seen the archetype of that person before in a past life and are familiar with the general behavior and psychology of that archetype. You have interacted with thousands of people throughout the course of your soul’s history, so there is really no archetype you haven’t interacted with yet.” As we evolve, we simplify these traits to learn about others and the boundaries of our own selfhood with respect to them through exchanging, loving, and sharing hidden aspects of ourselves. 

Some soulmates stay for a long time and become companions; others come and go, leaving us with pain and disappointment but also a gift of deeper compassion, understanding and sensitivity. We learn deeper whom we are compatible with; and we learn that relationships have many purposes.

Not all soul mates exist to fulfill us romantically.

Some soul mates come to help a person manifest a personality trait, a piece of art or a movement. Examples of people that get together for more than a romantic purpose are many. Bo Derek and her husband John Derek’s coupling helped mold her into a sex symbol. Another example is the relationship between Georgia O’Keefe and Alfred Stieglitz, the latter of which provided the financial support and promotion for her to receive acclaim as an artist. Another example is the spiritual partnership between Martin Luther king and Coretta Scott King. They each fortified each other and Coretta finished his legacy.

Certain traits do incline individuals to get along with each other; for that reason, we read the horoscope and marvel at how accurately it explains the quirks about our partner. Other times, our partners behave completely out of sync with the archetype, depending on which side of good and evil, he or she chooses to express. That said, we may not always be able choose the best partners but we can surely educate ourselves in choosing the right people to be more around with. 

If you’re not with the One or lost someone, maybe you have to learn to be the ‘One’

All of us want our relationships to last an eternity; however, if our soul has signed up for great challenges and growth, it is possible that that destiny can only be fulfilled by phases (and different partners at each phase); periods of solitude; or even divorce, loss and betrayal.

When life becomes tough and you come in for a consultation and ask how could I have signed up for this? The only explanation is that your life story is meant to be a drama for others. Sometimes to fulfill the soul’s need for such an experience to grow, mature and heal some of its past life wounds, we go through wrenching events as well as positive ones. As Arnold Swartzenegger once said, when you ask for greatness, it “does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.” Thus life produces the experiences that shape us into the individuals we aspire to become, and it’s up to us whether we become a victim of those circumstances or we learn to rise above.

Other times: life is going to happen to us regardless of our conscious control. For that, we sometimes have to acquiesce to a Higher Power and trust that, in some way, it is for our highest good.

If you want to actively moderate some of life’s dramas that are within our control, knowing the karmic patterns, in which you engage with certain individuals, can give you some insight into what you are experiencing and, if it’s a lesson you want to get over with, you can start taking action to resolve it. We may not be able to avoid certain types of people, jobs, illnesses, events, accidents or burdens, but we have, through many spiritual and psychological tools, to address unexplained fears, phobias and esteem issues that plague us from unsettled patterns from the past.

Each relationship is like a refining process. Our character becomes better defined and more durable; as we learn what can destroy us and what brings us back to joy and happiness. The more we see our relationships as a means to develop self-love, the more we can let go and enjoy the sometimes roller coaster ride that our soul mates take us, while our destiny with them unfolds and fulfills its purpose.

Fear not that there won’t be anyone out there for you. 

Be it a new friend, a new lover or a new pet. Despite what Hollywood wants you believe, there is no One and Only soulmate; there are multiple soulmates in the journey of life. Maybe that might not give you comfort when you are in a dry spell or experiencing a long bout of loneliness; however, if your heart is open and you have done the work to address what might not gone right in the last relationship, you will find others. 

As you work on becoming the right person, i.e. your authentic self, and putting yourself out there, law of attraction has to deliver true love to you with someone who appreciates your unique characteristics.

Conclusion 

No matter how successful, painful or disappointing, soul mates come to remind us who we are and show us how to love ourselves. If we welcome the experience understanding the purpose together, soul mates can help us experience love without fear before we go back into the light we came from.
