Raising Magickal Power

Sometimes it’s not what we think or feel but HOW we think and feel that matters.  Do we respect our bodies?! And others?! Yes, you can ask too much of someone, manipulate obligation by guilt, only leading towards loss of personal energy and theirs!   It’s far more easy to allow yourself to be sad and follow your path, knowing there’s a light at the end of the tunnel than to fight it!  If you have a cold, stay in bed and  not pass the negative drainage around! All these splash in the pool of the collective. These being actions from our estimations of ourselves.  So, I suppose again… Selfish power may include raising light energy for yourself, but are you hacking a cough at you coworker while you meditate at your office?! I’m a big fan of consequence because variables and probability are so fascinating, in that; they never run out.  There’s always chance.  How do you Hap?!  Thus for my Happy New Year, I intend  to let the powers that be Hap within respect of others and healthy boundaries of course.  But, I want to see what HAPpens, when energy isn’t about self seeking light, but about simply being!  So, maybe I will do art and not mop today, or tend to my garden as the fridged sun tickles my skin!  And, my heart will not be worried about obligatory responses, but rather will sing, and I’m pretty sure consequently time will slow down enough so that I’ll have time for a quick mop.  Time lessens probability of energy raising when you delve into the sludge of fear or worry and tends to feel like you’re dragging along, but, yet, you feel you have no time!  The thing is there’s is no such thing as time! So, sing your heart and you’ll find the energy build and the time will soar at whatever pace you wish manifest allowing the Haps. Let’s see what’s in store this year!

So excited about the launch of my website!  I can’t believe this is finally coming into fruition!  As I sit here with the common cold, ever so common I am, I feel a bit of joy rippling across the main page of my spirit or life with this experience!  Winter bearings bring abundance, and I look forward to its production being furthered then! I think it’s amazing when simple things cause joy and generally good feelings.  We have been so lost in this age of technology, everything within the American mandate to have! Well, a lot of us want to give, and that’s always refreshing!  In the entanglement of jealousy and envy, weaves a web of superficial success and loss.  I want to span out, even if unsuccessfully, and document this web I weave, ever so delicate.  Going back to the simple need of human kind, I excitedly explore purpose, passion, and pleasantries.  If only for tomorrow, then so be it but for today I will dance bare backed on a horse through the wild, winded night! Hm, and that would be interesting to dissect “what is success”! Until next time then 🙂

The Spiral Web

20121001-011939.jpg


A Noiseless, Patient Spider

A noiseless, patient spider,
I mark’d, where, on a little promontory, it stood, isolated;
Mark’d how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,
It launch’d forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;
Ever unreeling them—ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you, O my Soul, where you stand,
Surrounded, surrounded, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing,—seeking the spheres, to connect them;
Till the bridge you will need, be form’d—till the ductile anchor hold;
Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch somewhere, O my Soul.

Walt Whitman

 


Weaving Webs

Shake my hand.  There you take my residue.  It’s unavoidable to not exchange energy by something as simple as eye contact.  It says “I see you”.  It validates a person.  Likewise, when we don’t look at a person or whatever cultural exchange of energy, we “offend” or “deny” the exchange.  But, is that so wrong?  I must say I do not like to be hugged by just anyone.  I’ve felt my energy being sucked out of me by certain feeders who lives only to make themselves more energetic than everyone else.  This is power lust essentially and lack of self.  My power is in me and nothing more or less.  But together we make a vibrating, extended web of energy that if not met with wisdom can harm or hinder someone.  Not just intentionally feeding on the energy in the room, but having a bad day and dumping on your coworker, or spouse.  Making promises you don’t keep, entering someones space after you have yet calmed down from an intense phone call, or manifesting an action with out thought or conviction cause a negative ripple of residue scattering down until it’s burnt out or builds up.  Who knows which.  That’s why it’s important we all take responsibility for our personal space, our thoughts and intentions, and how we look, touch, and think about other people.  Yes, maybe you wanted to buy your boss a coffee, but was it just to hope she’d burn her lip?!  Deep inside we need to ask ourselves “why am i doing this?” and also “why am i with these people”.  Do you want to be the one accepting the coffee?! Not me.  There are ways to protect yourself from these negative daggers through mental shields and simple energy blocks but when you do that you may miss some goodness too.  So discretion advised!

Family is irreplaceable but that doesn’t mean you have to spend everyday with them or week or month.  In today’s culture, we do not foster a familial setting.  We have severe individuality for the sake of freedom, which isn’t bad but we’ve lost the know how to honor culture, energy exchange, and the true meaning of the person from the inside as a being among other selves.  Rather we see them as a worker, or “It’s moms birthday I’ll give her a call”.  The residue of tradition lies in us all as we crave love from our family, friends, and others, whether we want to admit it or not.  This spherical web is more spread out from one “point” to another.  But since there is no such thing as a point, we must admit that this sphere is in fact pulling within itself because we yearn for the other “point”.

I’ve never agreed with the theory of relativity and that’s why. Space and time are not married.  We live outside time and are members of spacial bodies.  These bodies do pull for other bodies and are pulled by gravity, sure.  But when the coming together of these “points” of say a love, the result is one.  Theories go one from here as to what happens to matter.  I like to think that all these spread out “points” will be one in an unwebbed, mass of vibrating, energy of whatever residue is combined.

Because of this, rather becoming one, imploding into a worm hole, or exploding into beyond, we need to try and watch the residue! Check intention, take responsibility, create the whole self and not take from it.

I just did a cleansing ritual for this Harvest moon, and I realized how much residue of others I have been dragging around and pulling towards me while other of that nature gravitated and those wary enough repelled.  It wasn’t horrible residue.  Just a bit of sadness and a splash of insecurity.  And though I’m sure my journey will be littered with negative residue, this only balances the ying and yang.  We can not have positive with out a negative, folks!  But I don’t advise robbing a bank so a cop can gain glory through an arrest and declare yourself “well balanced”!  Uhm, no feel the vibrations of each action and you’ll see the human crisis of not addressing residue, and acting irrationally to rob a bank which creates a need for a residue cleaner.  Negative energy can be experienced in healthy life trials that do not have to send you to jail!  Though, some people may need this.  I would assume or it wouldn’t be happening.

So until we take responsibility for the residual affects we have in our thoughts, intentions, and actions.  We will continue to paw at the ball of yarn mewing for mothers milk.  Maybe we should call our moms!

Metals of the earth, paint my flesh’s delicious night, as I breathe expanding the delicate red vines to the sounds moon waves varnishing my salty back!!!


Life Art

“The Aesthetic Movement argued that art was not supposed to be utilitarian or useful in any practical sense. Instead, aesthetic experience is a fully autonomous and independent aspect of a human life. Thus, art should exist solely for its own sake” This was back post impressionism, pre-realism in thought.

Now after early 2000 revisit of traditional, simplistic art forms such as aesthetic for a

esthetics sake, “The aesthetic movement prompted Americans to make the mental leap that beautiful surroundings, in and of themselves, would elevate the soul. This, women, who shouldered primary responsibility for domestic life, enlisted aesthetic forces as they shaped their houses, thereby shaping their families and the entire society. Creating a beautiful home was a moral act. (Bonding with a type of utilitarianism) aesthetic came to symbolize connections between the sun, fire, and warmth – both physical and metaphorical”
– Karen Zukowski, “The Artistic Hearth: The Fireplace in the American Aesthetic Movement,” March 2008 issue of The Magazine AntiquesBeauty for beauty sake, in vain, has moved to collective consciousness creating and responding. Calls of the internal designs to express practical, functional art that transcend just looking pretty are being answered creatively. We find connections, actions, and depth in spirit, expression and other art forms like literature. Gone are the days of limiting, pretty art and welcomed are the bonding of humans, in love, through holistic needs calling for a response and answered through creativity and art for art! We are ALL art.
I’m thinking the age of technology brought us an overwhelming amount of artistic information that we couldn’t quite sift through, so instead we bonded together based on need and responded.  We don’t really NEED Shakespeare, nor do you have to be like him to be a writer!  What an interesting era full of appreciation for the working woman and man and earth!
