Magic of Sound by Patti
This month I am going to talk about the magic of sound. Cultures the world over use sound to attune to, invoke, and transform consciousness. Sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature, and we are vibrational beings. Modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature. This is in line with age old mystical thought of most cultures, which often alludes to the vibrational nature of Creation. We have all experienced it… whether an “AMEN” at the end of a prayer – or an “OM” at the end of a yoga class. I work with sound a lot in my magical workings. From banging a loud gong to powerfully shift energy to the ringing of soft chimes to gently awaken the senses or spirits.
My favorite use of sound magic is with our human voice. From chanting and singing, to the conscious use of specific sounds to evoke a specific outcome. It is called a HEKA. Heka means the Art of Sound, or Alchemy of sound itself. Here is a basic rule… Consonants are FORM – Form that Shapes. Vowels are FORCE – Forces that ignite. You can make up your own Hekas from that! Try just doing vowel sounds ahhh, ehhh, eeee, oooo, uuuuu – and see how invigorating it can be! Chanting vowels sounds is great before an important meeting or test where you need clarity and focus. Here are a few more meanings of sounds: U is dragon vowel (Nature into action). LOVE is the force / power. A is vowel that brings birth / life. L is Dragon in the land. Z is Serpent – Lightening strike between heaven and earth. (Divine wisdom) Try using these sounds in a chant. Note how you feel, what you experience, what sight and senses open up, etc… Pretty cool huh?! Powerful too! Now, go out and make up your own power chants and sounds… I promise, it will open up a whole new magical world for you! Remember, magic is EVERYWHERE! “Til next time.

Dream School by Patti
This month I am going to talk about “Dream School”. Well, “Dream School” is what I call it! Night time is a wonderful time to connect to spirit and get answers and guidance from the universe. Plus it is a wonderful tool in developing one’s own intuition and psychic ability! One reason for it, is that it gives us the opportunity to get our “logical brain” out of the way for awhile! Many of us humans tend to “over think” things – and sometimes that is not the most advantageous mind set for spiritual growth and enlightenment.
Here are a simple technique anyone can use. First, set a glass of water by your bed at night. Water is an amazing “dream enhancer”. Plus, as an added bonus, a glass of water by the bed actually collects any negative energies that may come in during the night – so you are getting two benefits from one simple glass of water! Please note, you should never drink the water right by your bed, because it has spent the night gathering up and collecting these energies. Ever notice how bedside water just doesn’t taste very good in the morning? That is why! Use it to water plants if you want, but keep your drinking water further away than your bedside table. Okay, back to Dream School… you have your glass of water by the bed. As you lay down, ask your guides or higher power (or whatever you believe in) to come to you in your dreams to help you with any guidance or questions you may have. Or, just let them know you are “enrolling in Dream School” and want to develop and learn in your sleep. Then just go to sleep! At first you may or may not remember your dreams… or they may not make sense – but after just a little while, you will notice a new clear direction or path or understanding is unfolding. It will get clearer and clearer and you can ask for any specifics as it develops!
Part two of Dream School is in the morning… if you have a set time you have to get up, set your alarm for 10 minutes before that. When your alarm rings, again ask for guidance from divine in your life path – or just in your day ahead… then hit the “snooze” button and know you have 10 minutes to travel to the world between awake and sleep for some final “schooling”. This is again a perfect time when you are sleepy and not focused on your left and rational brain. When you wake up at the next alarm, you will feel a slight sense of direction, clarity and focus to start your day!
Part three of Dream School… When you first get up, take a few minutes to think about anything you may have got. Think about how you feel, any thoughts going through your head. Don’t sensor yourself – just let the thoughts flow! Again, with just a little practice, new information and insights will come flooding in every morning!
I recommend setting up a little altar or “power space” next to your bed. It doesn’t have to be religious or spiritual – though it certainly can be. But put a few things there that empower you; a photo, a candle, a flower. Perhaps a crystal, statue or rock you found along a path. Things that help you feel good about YOU! Keep a pad of paper or journal there. Allow yourself at least three minutes every morning to journal your new expanding thoughts and understanding. Perhaps get some crayons or drawing pencils to draw what you see or feel if you don’t feel like writing. Either way, you are literally helping develop your intuition and psychic ability with every word or color stroke. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to write or draw at first… just let it flow. No one ever has to see it. You will be surprised in how in just a short time, more messages and clarity are going to come out of your writings or drawings or even from you Crayola color choices! Plus it is just plain fun and helps develop your creativity as well as your intuition! With only a few extra minutes every day – you can expand your universe by galaxies! Give it a try! I promise, it will open up a whole new magical world for you! Remember, magic is EVERYWHERE! “Til next time. With love, blessings and big, big hugs from Hollywood! ;o) xox Patti
Value by Isabelle
I recently received a little story on a post from a dear friend, in India. The story had to do with a man, who could not hold on to his pens. One day a friend suggested he buy a very expensive pen. Never in a million years, did he expect to pay that kind of money, for a 22K pen. After many months the person checked with the man, to see the status, of his pen. He cherished that pen, and it was still, in his possession. We must all think of ourselves, as a treasured possession. I am not saying to be self absorbed, or ego driven. What I am saying, is know your value. Think of yourself, as a piece of fine china, or a very expensive pen. When you know your VALUE, you will expect nothing less, than the very best treatment, from everyone. You will be handled, with care, with love, and treated , the way, you deserve. I do that, and I expect only the best treatment. I am not saying I’m a princess, but I ask all the time, to only align myself, with those people, and situations, that are for my highest good.Why would one allow themselves, to be in a relationship, be it a friendship, a marriage, or partnership, with someone , who is not coming from a place of treating you, with VALUE. People who know me , realize I cherish my friends, loved ones, and those people, I share my space, with. I would do anything, for the people I am connected to. Never expect any thing less, from the people around you. If they can’t cherish you, for the wonderful person, you are, then you need to re think, that relationship. Be it family, friendship, or business associate. We all have, VALUE. Please do not forget that. Do not allow anyone, or situation, to treat you any other way. You are all precious, to me, and I VALUE, each, of you.
Energy Discernment*This piece is inspired by an article I recently read on energetic vampires along with some personal situations that bring this topic front-of-mind.
I consider energy more potent than words or actions for these reasons. As we are putting energy discernment into action, paying attention to our words and actions become a natural part of this energy discernment honing process.
I also learned that the action I took was a boundary breach – an impediment of that person’s spiritual journey. We are all here to work out our own issues in this lifetime. How we become aware, recognize and act around them are individual decisions. I realize that anytime I choose to speak more deeply about someone’s journey, whether from a compassionate place or not—it’s an infraction and disrespectful. Our best approach is to keep our own energy accounted for and move along when we encounter dissonance with and within another. This goes both ways so when you encounter someone breaching your boundaries, pull your energy inward and move along as you see fit.
Ways that we can take action when we recognize negative energy affecting us:
- Breathe deeply to relax our physical body
- Ask ourselves whether what we are feeling is necessary, ours and asked for it to be released
- Imagine an egg shaped cloud (our aura) around us filling with pink light of love
- Do anything physical to raise our vibration—dance, rub our hands together, clap, sing, walk, move…
- Blow energetic kisses to the person how is down/low/negative
- Imagine energetic hugs going to them (if not in their presence)
- Hug or high five the lower energy-ed person
- Leave the room, conversation, exchange, place, etc.
- Change the conversation
- Shift our thinking
You are the best and only judge of your energy and its role in your journey. I hope you’ll choose to incorporate energy discernment into your journey!
