Cleaning House

The Veil that separates the worlds of the living & spirit is growing thin.  This is normal for the months leading up to Samhain/Halloween, but now more then ever it is amplified.  Since the Winter Solstice of 2012 there has been a rapid change (thinning) in Veil.  This is due to the shifting of consciousness created by the line up of the Winter Solstice sun & the center of the Galaxy, something that has not happened previously for 26,000 years.  This change in consciousness is creating an awakening in many people, no longer asleep on the job we are able to sense the beings that live in dimensions close to us…Spirits of our Dead & Spirits of the Earth itself.  Waking up is not always easy, some of us jump up ready to go…others have to pry our eyes open and drag our hineys into action.  Whatever way you wake up, the alarm is going off.

sagesmudgingThis awakening has had an interesting effect on our homes.  I have had more phone calls in the last few years from people suddenly experiencing Spirit activity in their homes then in the 25 years I have been working in the field.  I think like us the Spirits that exist in the world of the Dead & Nature are also more aware of us.  The veil is thinning both ways…often confused by the activity or change in the homes they are attached to the Spirits become more…more visible, more audible, more real.  This by itself is not a bad thing, I personally do not mind having Spirits in or around my house, but I have the benefit of being able to ask them what they want and asking them to behave like any other resident of my home.  For many people the sudden activity in their homes can be overwhelming and a bit scary.  Knowing, feeling, sensing their are other beings in your home can be a bit alarming.  Specially if you do not know what they want.  My first bit of advice before calling a Psychic would be to clean your house of all negative energy.

Negative energy is not just something brought about by Spirits, very often it is the left over goobers of human folk living in the space or previous tenants.  Emotions set heavy in a space, particularly the darker energies of fear, sadness and anger.  A space exposed to repetitive smatterings of heavy emotion will hold onto it.  As a general rule I highly recommend Energetically cleaning any space before moving into it.  Most people think to get out the soap and water and do a serious scouring of a home when they first move in, grossed out by living in the left over dirt of others.  But few think to do an energetic cleaning.

How to Energetically clean your house-

What you will need-

Smudge (sage, cedar, palo santo), most health food stores carry Sage smudge sticks.  I personally like Holy Wood/Palo Santo which comes from Central America, you can also use Cedar (cedar is really oily, if you make your own cedar smudge stick make sure to dry it out really good…baking it on low heat 200 degrees or a food dehydrator).

Plate or bowl to catch the ash droppings from the smudges stick

Pots, pans & wooden spoon for making noise

Smudging has been used for thousands of years as a way of energetically removing negative energy.  Starting in the basement or lowest level of the house clean and clear each room…entering corners, closets and knucks.  If you haven’t used a Smudge Stick before, remember it is the smoke you are working with…so light it, get it going then blow it out and let it smoke.  Move your smoking smudge stick into the corners, fanning, blowing and spreading the smoke around.   A plate is necessary to catch any ash that falls off the smudge stick.  Please note- Cedar is hard to keep going and may need to be relit a few times.

If you are working with a partner or partners have them grab pots and pans and wooden spoons from the kitchen.  As you smudge a room, spreading the smoke around have them beat the drum of the pots and pans loud and clear….shaking things up and shaking loose any left over energy no longer wanted there.  Kids love this job!

Work your way through the house, going through the basement into every room.  Heading to the next floor, again go into all closets, rooms and hidey holes…under the sink, garbage closets and all.  Keep doing this working your way up through the house room to room.

Remember thought matters….as you clean and clear your house,  hold onto the intention that you are removing any and all negative energy.

Creating the space you want-

After clearing a house, I like to replace the negative energy with a vibration I want.  For me I like to use Rose Water (which again can be purchased at most health food stores).  I like Rose Water because the vibration of Rose is all about LOVE!  The energy Rose gives off is as fantastic as the smell.  Other suggestions would be Frankincense & Myrrh, Copal and Lavender.  I am sure there are other lovelies out there, so do some research and pick something that you like.  Repeat the process of going room to room, bottom to top liberally spreading the good juju around.  REMEMBER THOUGHT MATTERS.  Along with all the smudging and spraying, holding onto positive energy and love are amazing .

If you have cleaned and cleared your home/office/space and are still having disturbing activity then you should consider contacting a professional.  If you have questions or general household weirdness feel free to contact me on facebook….salicrow, psychic medium or give me a call 802-473-2907.

The Spirit of Place

Over the summer my sister &  I have spent a lot of time visiting sacred places in Vermont & New Hampshire, working with the Spirit of Place (spirit of the land itself). We  feel as if the land itself is calling us.   Many of the places we visit are dense with Nature Spirits.   What has been particularly noteworthy this year,  is that the Fae (Nature Spirits) appear to want to be seen (seen, heard, felt, sensed, known) as do the Ancestors who walk these lands.  I believe this is partially due to the state of our planet & that they have a strong desire to work in partnership with those doing healing work.

salirocksAnyone & everyone can work as a healer.  We can heal ourselves, our family & the land we walk on by becoming more conscious.  It is important to note that to heal is to make well…it is not always the same as curing, after all everything must die someday, for that is the circle of life.  We are living in rapidly changing times, exciting times…our consciousness is shifting, enhancing.  More and more people are becoming aware of the unseen world & more and more people are remembering that there is power in thought.  Growing awareness and power of intention go hand &  hand.

When connecting to the Spirit of Place also know as Genius Loci the first step is to quite ones mind.  Luckily nature has a way of gently coaxing us into silence and awe.  With a quiet mind sit and listen…listen from within, the communication of Genius Loci is often messages sent to your mind.  Another helpful technique is Wide-angle Vision.  To do this soften your gaze, allowing your eyes to soften with attention paid to your peripheral vision.  I often find it easiest to explain to people by referring to the 3D pictures that were popular in the 90’s, the ones where you looked at a picture long enough and another 3 dimensional image would pop out.  Spirits both of the Dead & of Nature do not exist in the same dimension as us & they are easiest to see from our peripheral vision.  That is why most people who experience Spirits will say “I saw something out of the corner of my mind, turned around and it was gone”.  They were not gone, but not easily seen with our regular eyes forward, penetrating view.

Why connect with the Spirits of Nature?

Some might wonder why we would want to connect with the Spirits of Nature.  The Spirits of the Dead are pretty obvious, you miss Grandma, Uncle Bob or your husband and just want to connect again.  But Nature…what is there to gain by connecting with the Spirits of the Land?  Plenty my friends, plenty….This planet we walk upon, dance upon, live upon is in a pretty sorry shape if you haven’t noticed.  It is being exploited and trashed on a daily basis.  And here is the news flash folks, this our home is the only one we got!  The Spirits of Nature are aware of this as well.  Like I said earlier, this year I have been blown away by the effort the Nature Spirits are putting into being seen, felt, known.  I have found in my own experience that working with the Spirits of Nature has greatly benefited the land on which they exist.  Acknowledging that there is much more then seen by the ordinary eye gives us an understanding that the world is vaster, more interactive then popular media would have us believe.

My personal work with the Genius Loci (Spirit of Place) & the Fae Spirits of the land has been geared toward healing the Earth.  I am actively sending energy through Nodal points into the ley lines of the planet.  Ley lines are kind of like blood vessels or better yet Meridians.  They are like the super highways of the planet.  When we direct energy into them we can send deep healing to the planet, just like a human getting Reiki, Accupunture or the likes.  As a Druid this has been a big part of my work for some time & I do experience the Earth talking back to me.  The sheer number of synchronicity’s experienced by myself and those working with me is overwhelming.  I have been almost giddy on the vibration of the planet and interaction I am taking part in.  I know I am working as part of a vast system, and can send energy anywhere and everywhere through the energy lines of the planet.  This is highly rewarding work.

For those of you interested in learning more about connecting with Nature directly as well as  Geomancy & Earth Healing I highly recommend taking the Healing with Crystal Grids workshop my sister and I are hosting Saturday, September 13th.  The Druid teachers we are bringing in to teach the class have spent time and energy working deeply with Earth Healing.  Traveling to Hawaii & Japan, Andrew & Juniper have been taking their work seriously and we are excited to be bringing them to the Kingdom to share their knowledge with you.  There are still a few spots open for this powerful workshop.  If you want more info make sure to check out the Event- Healing with Crystal Grids on my facebook page Salicrow, Psychic Medium, or give me a call @ 802-473-2907.  For those of you who cannot make it, walk out into your back yard, sit under a tree and listen….listen deeply, begin the conversation with the Earth that is so needed.  We are Stewards of the Earth, it is our responsibility to take care of her.

My work as a Psychic Medium has brought me to this point in which I not only work with the Spirits of the Beloved Dead, but the Spirits of the Earth itself.  I am honored to share this work with you.  I look forward to sharing more & more of the wonders I experience.
