Energy, gadgets, and investment in yourself…

As much as I can and do appreciate upsetting the apple-cart from time to time, the fact is that change isn’t always what we’re looking for.
Case in point…
A friend in the Reiki/metaphysical world that I wander around in sent me a note from another therapist who went on to say that the Reiki energy just wasn’t doing it for her anymore, the energy is old and apparently not relevant because of the shift in the human race that seems to be taking place.
Which leads me to this …if something works for you and you’re happy in it, fine. If it’s worn out it’s welcome for YOU, that doesn’t mean that it no longer works for everyone else who is happy with it.
Why, oh why must people foist their opinions on others who are apparently doing alright?
If someone isn’t feeling the buzz from raising and passing the Universal Life Force, well, that’s okay. Maybe their time is up doing that sort of work, or perhaps working within that framework has run its course.
Call it what you wish, (here’s that old chestnut yet again), the energy is what it is, undefinable but indeed, definitely there for those that wish to access it.
God, Krishna, Buddha, Ganesh, whatever…. IT’S ALL THE SAME.

(Funny, my mom asked me about meeting her parish priest to talk about doing a sermon on just this.
Now there’s an image, the Heyoka at the pulpit.
That’s something I don’t think anyone would ever expect, least of all me.)

The energy, as we’re all aware, is compassion, love, awareness, and a willingness and eagerness to share what many energy workers/healers/therapists have learned to (some degree) harness.

I’m learning, or have learned, that each new modality is a new way to pull in a buck. I’m really sorry to say that, but it is in fact the truth. It’s at the point where I’m having people with all manner of gadgets and healing wands and this, that and the next thing wanting me to endorse what they’re hawking, and frankly, I’d rather not.
The fact is, WE can and do heal ourselves and we DON’T need the little $300 and $400 gadgets that “speed up the healing process”.
We ARE the healing gadgets.
I’d rather take the time and teach the client how to
ENACT and ENABLE the energy so that they don’t NEED the little gadget.

All we need is the awareness and intention.

Altering your vibration

Over the years I have started to take exception with the undeniable fact that a lot of shamanic work seems to almost focus on the use of consciousness altering substances, needless to say natural.
I’m not in complete agreement with the idea.

First off, to clear up a misconception.
I’m always hearing people talk about “doing ‘shrooms and going to the shaman for a trip, dude…” The fact is, the “patient/client” doesn’t “do” any of the substances. That’s the vehicle of the shaman, so there’s no sharing or party here.

I feel that to make a connection, a real strong, CLEAN connection with that divine vibration that we are seeking, you can’t alter your waves through artificial means. Once you do that, you’re not in control of the situation, no matter what anyone may say. (And yes, I’m speaking from experience here)

I’ve read Castaneda and all that pertinent stuff, and I went down that path many moons ago, and as much as it does make the journey a little faster, as I said, it’s not real. Your vibration, your wave, call it what you wish, has been altered, and it’s not stable, therefore it’s not operating at its’ peak potential.

I see it sort of like this.
If you can’t perceive without the aid of artificial means, first off, you’re not ready to be there, and second, you probably don’t deserve to go on the journey, which often leads to a bad experience. The people that work with energy all know the wisdom on the other side of the veil is pretty all-encompassing.
They seem to know what’s what and who belongs there.

Sorry if that was a bit of proselytizing…
I continually hear people go on about the necessity for Mother Nature’s assistance, eg: hallucinogens, in doing energy work and working natural magick, and I don’t buy into it anymore.
Not with what I’ve seen/witnessed/experienced.

We’re all amazing, energetic beings capable of healing ourselves and others, and in this time which is making that fact more and more apparent, I think it may be the time to heighten peoples’ awareness that psycho-actives aren’t really necessary, as much fun as they may be.

As I’m sure you’re aware, the only reason psychoactive herbs cause any sort of reaction is the toxin that’s creeping into the system. I think when people realize that it’s a poison they’re ingesting, (and I realize that’s taking it a stretch for someone who enjoys their magic mushrooms), they will eventually look at things in a slightly clearer light.

….or not.

Inside the Cloud Gate.

Blessings all…
