Preparing & Maintaining Your Energy Health This Holiday Season

During the holidays, it’s common to be around a lot of people and in many different environments. While this can be fun and festive, it can also leave you feeling drained and overwhelmed if you’re not careful about protecting your energy. Here are some tips for keeping your aura clean and avoiding taking on psychic energy from others during the holidays: 

Set boundaries:

Before attending events or spending time with others, set clear boundaries for yourself. Decide what you’re willing and able to give of your time and energy and communicate that to others. Catch yourself if you are “people pleasing”. 

Prepare with visualization before you go to the gathering:

See the event in your mind ahead of time, and actively place positive and protective energies around the space you will be in. A restaurant, or a person’s home, or your own home if that is where the gathering is going to be. I personally use angels on every corner of the property, and inside in all corners of the space. I ask that they continuously clear the space from any negative lower frequencies that may be there. I then ask that the doorways be cleared and guarded with pure light, so any negative energies are purified as people walk through them. This is called treating or setting the space ahead of time. Then, when I walk into the gathering, I know I am walking into ease, light, joy, and positive energy for the time there. If angels don’t work for you, use a body of light with colors you like, or power animals or spirit guides and loved ones on the other side, or fairies and elementals. I have a friend who calls in the Divine Creator to do this protection, and Jesus. It just depends on what truly resonates with you.  

Protect yourself:

Visualize yourself surrounded by a protective bubble of light that shields you from negative energy. You can also carry protective crystals like black tourmaline or amethyst or wear a piece of jewelry that has special meaning to you. If you find yourself “cornered” by someone who is an energy vampire, talking “at” you instead of with you, and by so doing is literally filling themselves up with your energy as you listen to them, simply place a hand on your solar plexus to “shield” yourself from the energy cording the other person is doing to you. At the same time imagine the energy from them that is going into you draining right out your feet and into the Earth. Energy cords are cords of psychic energy that get created through (unconscious or conscious) emotions.  We can give and take these cords of energy from others all the time all day long as we move about and interact with life. When there is a strong emotion in an interaction, the cords will be stronger and feel more obvious.  

Practice mindfulness:

Stay present in the moment and pay attention to how you’re feeling. If you notice yourself becoming overwhelmed or drained, take a break and do something that helps you feel grounded, like deep breathing or meditation.  

Clear your energy:

Take time each day to clear any negative energy from your aura. You can do this by smudging with sage or palo santo, taking a salt bath, spending some time out in nature, breathing in fresh air, or practicing visualization techniques. 

Surround yourself with positive people:

Seek out relationships with people who uplift and inspire you and avoid those who drain your energy or bring negativity into your life. 

Eat sensibly and somewhat cleanly:

Be mindful of the sugar, alcohol and dairy you are consuming, and the quantities of such. Moderation is key! 

By incorporating these practices into your daily routine, you’ll be better equipped to protect your energy and maintain a clean aura during the holidays and beyond.

Halloween and the Ominous Owl

Did you know that October is Owl month? This is the month that the owl prepares for breeding and the approaching winter. They tend to be more active during this time and this is why you will often hear their call during the dark of the night more at this time of year than any other.

They are nocturnal, and have a unique appearance. Their eyesight is unparalleled and they are known as silent fliers as can they easily silently swoop down upon their prey. They also have a piercing stare with the ability to turn their necks at 300 degrees. And did you know that they are known to become more vocal during full moons as well?

And the Owl has quite a varied reputation!

On one hand, you have ancient Greek mythology where the owl was the companion of the Greek Goddess Athena. The owl was perceived to be wise and intelligent and revered within their culture. It was believed that the owl would reveal the truths of the world to Athena. She could see what others could not because the owl was there to provide her with wisdom.

Then you have the Romans, who viewed the owl as a bad omen. They believed the owl fed not only on animals, but humans too. So when Rome defeated Athens, perceptions of the owl became more spiteful. In fact, the Romans did not believe that owls were real.
They believed that the witch or wizard actually turned themselves into the owl and then they would suck the blood of babies. Many owls were killed in the Middle Ages because of this and the reputation of the owl had morphed and became associated with witches. The Roman’s also
believed that if you heard the hoot of an owl, there was a witch nearby.

So it is no coincidence that the Owl is associated with Halloween. Halloween does have its roots with the Celtic festival, Samhain. Samhain was celebrated on October 31st of each year and it was thought that the barrier between the worlds was thin. The Celts believed that the
spirits would rise up and visit their farms and homes and often dressed up in masks and animal heads to ward off any evil. They also believed that because owls were creatures of the night, they were the seer of souls and the guardians of the underworld.

Many myths regarding the owl still exist amongst some cultures today. For example, one belief is that if you hear an owl, death is imminent for someone. Another myth is that if you hear a screech of an owl at your home, then someone within the home will die. Even the owl’s ability
to rotate it’s neck became a superstition.

The owl is a special bird. One that is filled with mystery, intrigue and a diverse reputation. What are your beliefs about the owl?

Halloween and the Mysterious Black Cat

The beautiful black cat. They have been associated with bad luck, witches and evil. You’ve heard the old wives tale that if you cross paths with a black cat that bad luck will surely follow. But where did this superstition come from?

As an Animal Communicator, I can’t help but feel sorry for the reputation of the black cat. How did the black cat go from being worshipped, loved and a part of a collective that was considered a divine symbol in ancient Egypt to an evil being connected to Satan?

It is common to read how often cats appeared in Greek mythology. One myth suggests that Hecate, the Greek Goddess of sorcery, magic, and witchcraft, was the guardian of a cat. But this cat was more than just a cat! This cat was also a familiar! A familiar is viewed as a demon in
disguise and were rumored to assist witches with their super natural powers.

But myths aside, the black cat can be traced to the Celtic festival Samhain, which was held every year on October 31st. This festival marked the close of a bountiful harvest season and the start of the long winter.

It is believed that the Cat Sith (a fairy creature in the form of a black cat with a white spot on the chest) would bless the house of anyone who left him some milk. But, the home would be cursed if there was no milk left out.

Fast forward to the 13th Century when the Pope declared the black cat as an incarnation of Satan and an “idol of witches.” This declaration was listed in a church document called the “Vox in Rama”, a decree published in June of 1233 denouncing Luciferian in Germany, a form of
Satan worship.

Millions of cats were eliminated over the next few hundred years as a result of this decree. This condemnation of the black cat also spawned the beginning of the inquisition and church sanctioned witch hunts which spread quickly through Europe and eventually in Salem.

But did you know the witches started becoming popular before the persecutions began? The witches worked with energy, honored the natural world and held a deep respect for the animals and plants. They were healers. And although the Church in Europe and the early Christians co-
existed with the witches, the church saw this popularity as a threat. As a result, the church started the witch hunts that included torturing and killing many innocent souls.

In addition, the church saw the relationship between animal and human as evil and any old woman with a cat became a suspect. People were afraid that these cats were familiars and assisted these old women in their “evil” ways. Some people even believed that the women could
shape shift into the black cat. Perhaps you already know that this is where the term “cat lady” originated from?

But thanks to the waning puritanical movements in the 18th century, fears started to decrease and people started viewing the black cat differently. Edgar Allen Poe even published a short story “The Black Cat” that helped change the perceptions that people held about the black cat. And although black cats are frequently depicted in horror films to this day, since World War II, they have become the symbol for Halloween, but now as good luck.

Do you have a black cat in your life?
