Sensing spirits in your home

Greetings All,

While I believe that most noises or bumps in the night can be explained for a reason, there are times when some bumps in the night are actually just that. If you are experiencing odd occurrences, then check this post to validate whether its your radiator creaking at night or there really is a spooky spectral visiting your abode.

We can’t always explain what we feel or why we feel a certain way, and this can occur when sensing a spirit. If we choose to remain open to spirits, then we will sense them. It is more intuitive and clairvoyant than anything else. Spirits linger near where they died and I believe they remain in old houses with a history to the building or anywhere else.

Encountering a Spirit may feel like –

  • A sudden rush of wind or cool air that cannot be explained
  • A heavy or strong pressure around your head, neck, chest or upper back
  • An unexplained feeling of anxiety, nervousness or a rush of emotion
  • A heaviness in the air which makes the space feel small or stuffy
  • Hearing voices, whispers or distant chatter
  • Someone is watching you

A place that is haunted by a dark spirit will have a more oppressive energy. A place that has a light spirit will have a more lighter or positive energy. Your feelings will tell you which is which.

If your home has a darker energy, this list of things to look for will tell you:

  • Electrical disturbances that cannot be explained
  • Seeing shadows out of the corner of your eye
  • Strange dreams or nightmares
  • Psychokinetic Activity (opening of doors or things moving around the room)
  • Unexplained fear when in certain areas of your space
  • Abnormal animal behavior or reactions
  • Feeling drained, mentally foggy or tired when in the space

We are physical beings but we also have an energetic level to us. We are connected to the Spirit world. Sometimes we have to reach out on the energetic level to understand why we feel what we feel. If you do suspect your home has darker spirits, then look for these signs:

  • Clean the clutter and mess from every room in the house
  • Smudge your space regularly with sage, cedar, frankincense, rosemary
  • Place crystals, charms or deities around the room
  • Burn incense or diffuse essential oils
  • Imagine your space filled and wrapped with white light
  • Ask your angelic Spirit Team to help
  • Practice positive thinking and keep your emotions positive
  • Consult with a shaman, paranormal expert or energy healer

I don’t recommend interacting much with the dark spirit. If you do have one, seek help from a professional or a church priest. The dark spirits may have unresolved business on this earthly plane that prevents them from transitioning to the next level of existence or going to a dimension.

Psychic Shielding

Merry meet all,

I recently visited my local witch shop. To my dismay, my awesome friend and shop owner Pamela McInnis or Lavender if you want to call her that, told me people harassed her about selling sage. She is entitled to sell whatever she wants in her beautiful mystical witch shop. She was attacked for cultural appropriation. I can’t believe some people. I can’t see a witch shop without sage bundles in it. Anyone is welcome to use sage. In fact, it has many benefits such as eliminating nasty negative entities, reducing bacteria in the air and clearing a space of negative energy. It can relax you and loosen up the energy in a room. I love sage and I also want some sweetgrass and cedar. Sage has been used by many cultures over time. People should learn research before they criticize someone for selling a famous herb in their store.

Imbolc is almost here! I am thrilled because Imbolc is the first Sabbat of spring! I can’t wait for the harshness of winter to give way to tiny green sprouts appearing in my garden. Last year, I couldn’t be in my garden and this year makes up for it. Yup I plan to grow veggies, flowers and herbs like nobody’s business. Imbolc can’t come soon enough for me. I hope you all enjoy the Imbolc Sabbat too. I need some seed catalogs.

I am almost done my first year at Sacred Mists. I am currently on Lesson 17. The total number of lessons in the year is 20 lessons. I have completed the Lithomancy Extension course as well as Shielding, Empathy, Magickal Tools and Lithomancy. I am waiting for my last lesson on Runes to be graded. I’ve experienced a magickal year and I would not change a minute of it. Well except for my foot injury. I could have done without that. I have learned so much and now will never be the same person. I have grown and changed because I learned so much magickal stuff and it has probably made me a better person. I hope I can continue studying there to earn my 2nd and 3rd degree. If I study hard, I will. It is harder there than you could ever expect.

I wanted to discuss one more good point about psychic shielding. Muggles don’t know how to shield themselves (And they give us witches a hard time.) You don’t have to just shield yourself from a negative entity. It can help to shield yourself from people too. It is good though to know and understand the difference between shielding yourself from energies and having a wall of defense around yourself from an abusive situation, etc. Anyone can create and use a psychic shield. Anyone can have a defensive wall around themselves too for whatever reason. There is a huge difference between the two and it is worth talking about.

If a person is in a nasty situation, or grew up in a bad situation, and is continually mistreated, over time you will develop a wall of defense to prevent yourself from feeling hurt and develop trust issues. It is normal. It is understandable. A person could have an abusive partner or parent and the defensiveness is a response to the situation. Escaping the nasty situation, if possible and seeking help is the most common situation.

Psychic shielding is creating a barrier around yourself to protect yourself from negative energy, whether human or paranormal. Anyone can create this and use it. However, not everyone feels defensive from abusive situations but anyone can use a psychic shield for whatever the reason. People can benefit from a psychic shield too. To learn more about how to create a psychic shield, please read my previous posts. You will find good information on how to do it there.

I hope this has helped create a better understanding about psychic shielding. It is a lot of work at first but over time, you can become good at it. I encourage everyone to practice it. You will feel better. I still hope off of  a bus and catch other ones if I find peoples’ energy is too  much for me. Good luck. Many Inbolc Blessings to you all!!!! )O(

Psychic battles for rights to sorcery

Merry meet all,

Here is an interesting article about the changing face of witchcraft in Canada. Happy new Year everyone!!!

 

‘Psychic’ charged with being a fake fights case after Canada decriminalises witchcraft

Kristine Phillips

Canada recently passed legislation that says pretending to be a witch to dupe people into paying, a seemingly unusual crime, is no longer a crime.

Critics said criminalising witchcraft-related activities was not only archaic, but also redundant because fraud, in general, is already a crime. The witchcraft law yielded a paltry number of prosecutions, and offences rarely resulted in convictions. So Canada voted to remove the law from the books.

But Parliament did not take action soon enough for Tiffany Butch, who goes by the alias “the white witch of the north.”

Authorities have charged Ms Butch, 33, with pretending to practice witchcraft over an incident that allegedly occurred in October, before the law was scrapped last week.

Police in Timmins, in northeastern Ontario, described Ms Butch as a “self-proclaimed spiritualist, medium and clairvoyant.” They say she promised to protect a client from “some form of potential danger” to her family and tried to elicit payments in return.

Ms Butch contends she is not a witch, but a psychic, and says she has been one since she was 11. Her alias was merely a “cute name” her friends and family called her, she said. She said she never advertised herself as someone who practices witchcraft.

The charges against her are false, she said, and fellow psychics – her rivals – have conspired to frame her, though she declined to name anyone. She said sometime in October, a woman came to her office in Timmins and asked for a crystal ball reading. But, Ms Butch said, she told her she was not in business at that time.

“I don’t believe that I even read for her,” Ms Butch said. “I don’t believe I even provided this woman a reading.”

Before the witchcraft law was scrapped, it led to criminal charges against women accused of advertising themselves as fortune tellers and telling unsuspecting clients they could ward off evil spirits. In October, a 32-year-old fortune teller from Milton, Ontario, was accused of swindling more than $60,000 (£47,000) out of one of her clients. The same month, police say, a 27-year-old woman from Toronto conned an elderly man out of $600,000 in an “evil blessing scam.”

Those women, and Ms Butch, were charged under Section 365 of Canada’s criminal code. It says anyone who pretends to exercise witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment, conjuration or fortune telling, or claims to have the ability to find lost or stolen objects, has committed a crime. Punishment can be up to six months in prison, a $2,000 fine or both.

The witchcraft law was in place in Canada since the late 1800s and largely remained unchanged. It originated from a 1735 British law under which those who pretended to practice witchcraft would be subjected to a minor punishment. Previously, the British law classified witchcraft as a felony.

In 2017, lawmakers introduced expansive legislation to scrap what they consider antiquated laws. These included laws that criminalise pretending to be a witch, challenging someone to a duel, possessing comic books that depict crime and advertising a drug that claims to enhance sexual virility.

“Canadians are far better served by a criminal code that is focused on conduct that actually causes harms or risks causing harms to Canadians and our fundamental values,” Marco Mendicino, a Liberal member of the House of Commons, said during a speech last year.

The bill also amended sexual assault laws by, among other things, clarifying the definition of “consent” and creating stricter rules about admitting an alleged rape victim’s sexual history as evidence in court.

Critics of the witchcraft law say it hardly resulted in convictions because charges were usually dropped after defendants agreed to reimburse their clients, said Christine Moore, a House of Commons member from the New Democratic Party.

Peter Van Loan, a Conservative member of the House of Commons, however, opposed removing the provision, saying it protected people from those wanting to use “fraudulent witchcraft powers.”

“These things really happen in our society, even in this day and age. Does that provision, as it exists right now, cause any harm? No. Does it give the police an avenue or resource in the case of those particular unusual offences? Yes, it does,” he said.

Ms Butch, a mother of two, praised the scrapping of the witchcraft law. She said she plans to hire a lawyer.

“I feel hurt, but I feel like there’s victory for me as a psychic,” she said.
