The other day a reader asked a question on my post Psychic Ability – The Gift of Feeling  that many others have on their minds. She is so sensitive to other people’s feelings that sometimes she can’t function in her daily life, and she wanted to know how to overcome her debilitating situation.

I could empathize with her because I used to have the same issue. I shared a couple of powerful energy clearing techniques with her, which will solve the immediate problem, but there’s so much more to this question and not enough room to discuss it in a blog comment that I decided to share with you in a blog post how I learned to live in my own energy without sacrificing my sensitivity.

This post is a long one because I have included step-by-step processes that will help you relax, calm down, and clear your mind. So hang in there with me.

The Human Energy Field

This issue really starts with the cosmic soup of energy we live in. Thoughts are things, and we are constantly bombarded with thoughts and impressions from outside ourselves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – that’s 24/7, no exaggeration. We are two-way radios, constantly sending and receiving signals. We are never unplugged.

Every living thing has an electromagnetic field which penetrates and surrounds it. In humans, it’s called the human energy field. The human energy field is the life force that holds the cells of our bodies together. Without it, we would be corpses. Here is a good description of the human energy field, also called the aura, from reiki-for-holistic-health.com.

The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds the human body (Human Energy Field-HEF) and every organism and object in the Universe.

 

The Human Energy Field [is] a collection of electro – magnetic energies of varying densities that permeate through and emit or exit from the physical body of a living person. These particles of energy are suspended around the healthy human body in an oval shaped field. This “auric egg” emits out from the body approximately 2-3 feet (1 metre on average) on all sides. It extends above the head and below the feet into the ground.

The aura, also called the biofield, is actually our soul energy and connects us to everything in the universe. It’s the medium through which we sense our environment. Everyone senses everything in their environment through their aura whether they are aware of it or not; the only difference between people is the degree of sensitivity.

People who are highly empathic are particularly sensitive to their environment. These are the ones who find it challenging to be in a crowd or to be in a negative environment because they pick up energy indiscriminantly. The good news is that we have the ability to manage our biofield energy. In fact, it’s very important to manage our biofield energy so that we can function free of outside influences and enjoy life more.

Personal Energy Management

There are familiar ways we all regulate our biofield energy, such as doing things that lift our spirits like watching funny movies, going out with friends, playing sports, etc. These are indirect methods of biofield energy management, and they are more directed at our moods.

Everybody knows that keeping our thoughts more positive than negative is a powerful way to regulate our energy. Prayer is another powerful way.

For some, managing thoughts is easier said than done. And sometimes even the strongest minds need something more. That’s where direct methods of energy management come in.

Direct methods obviously work directly with your energy field, either physically or mentally, and do more than change your mood. They affect both your biofield and your body. Whether we use direct or indirect methods, I call it Personal Energy Management, or P.E.M.

There are other good methods of direct energy management, but I have found the ones I’m going to share with you to be quicker and easier than most, once you learn them. You can actually do these techniques on the run, if necessary. It’s like instant P.E.M.

Protecting Your Space

The first thing you need to do is establish a psychic boundary between you and the rest of the world. I don’t mean you have to shut down your feelings, but create a space within and around yourself that will allow you to sense the feelings and thoughts of others without getting caught up in them. I’m going to share four ways I do this. I call them all Spiritual Cleansing. The first one is a physical process.

Spiritual Cleansing I

  • Standing up, rub your hands together until they feel warm or until they tingle or feel like magnets when you hold the palms about an inch apart. This means your biofield is charged up and ready to work with.
  • Bring your hands to your forehead and pass them down over your temples and jaw line.
  • Then shake them to keep your biofield energy going.
  • Now, starting at your forehead again, pass your hands over the top of your head and around the back of your neck and bring them to the front again.
  • Shake your hands again, and repeat the process until you feel balanced, starting with your forehead and jaw line once more. You can touch or not touch your skin. The process works either day.
  • As you are doing the physical process, you can repeat this mantra (or not): “In the name of (your word for the Creator) within me, I cleanse my body, I cleanse my soul.”
  • Do this entire process as many times as you need to until you sense that your energy is strong and clear.

You will know your energy is balanced and clear when you feel relaxed, when your skin feels tingly, or when you get chills or goose bumps.

You can do this process on the run (in a meeting, on the bus, at your desk, etc.) by rubbing the back of your neck or rubbing your forehead and mentally saying the mantra at the same time. Everyone does this naturally because subconsciously we know the back of the neck and the forehead are the points where our biofield energy enters the body and leaves the body. Running your hand through your hair is another way you automatically cleanse your biofield energy.

Spiritual Cleansing II and Variation

  • Visualize yourself doing Spiritual Cleansing I and repeating the mantra.
  • After you become familiar with the technique, just repeating the mantra either aloud or mentally will have the same effect as doing the physical process.

Spiritual Cleansing III

  • Imagine a tiny ball of white light in your solar plexus.
  • Allow the light to expand to fill your body.
  • Now imagine the light surrounding your body in a big, glowing ball of white light.
  • As you imagine the light filling and surrounding you, you can say, “I see the white light of the Loving Presence that fills me and surrounds me.”
  • You can use any color you are led to use.

Spiritual Cleansing IV

  • Say the following three times, aloud or mentally:
    • “I invoke the light of the Christ within (or your word for the Creator), I’m a clear and perfect channel, light is my guide.”

Each of these processes creates an invisible shield around you which allows you to sense your environment without becoming influenced by it. Each of them will produce physical effects, such as tingling, chills, or goose bumps.

Experiment

If you have a dowsing rod(s), you can measure a friend’s biofield while s/he is doing these processes and have him/her measure yours. Have your friend focus on a negative thought, then measure his field by standing about 10 feet away and walking toward him with the rod(s). You will not get a measurement until you are about 12 inches or so from your friend. As your friend does the cleansing processes, you will see his aura projecting up to 10 feet from his body when you use the dowsing rod(s). It’s fun to see how powerful these processes are and to realize how much power we have to change our energy.

Spiritual Discipline

Cleansing is a spiritual discipline, and you will get out of it what you put into it. I recommend cleansing before you go to bed and when you get up, whenever you feel stressed or tired during the day, angry or upset, before a meeting, before and after work, and between tasks during the day. You’ll find countless ways you can use it in your everyday life. You can teach your children how to do it, too. Little kids love to do it.

You may feel the need to cleanse multiple times a day at first, but when you become skilled with these techniques, your energy will stay at higher levels longer and you won’t have to cleanse as often. Always look for the physical responses of chills, tingling, or goose bumps that confirm your energy is clear. It’s important for everyone to take charge of their energy. You don’t have to live your life at the mercy of your environment.

I hope you will try these techniques, and I’d love to receive your comments. Also, please share with us other ways you manage your personal energy. Knowledge is power!

Live your purpose every day.

Are You Psychic? What Do You Think?

Many people would say “No”, to this question, “Only a few people with special abilities are psychic.” But as we move closer to the Aquarian Age, more and more people are becoming aware that everyone is psychic. Everyone has a sixth sense, sometimes called extra-sensory perception. Most people are afraid of extra-sensory perception because they don’t understand it. I think it’s time to lift the veil from psychic matters and reveal the truth.

If you told me you’d never had a hunch about something, I wouldn’t believe you. Think back to a time when you had an impression about the way something would turn out, and it turned out that way. Or you saw a series of numbers in your mind and, if you had played them, you would have won the lottery. Or you had a thought about someone and they called you on the phone. Or you walked into a room and immediately felt right at home or very uncomfortable for no apparent reason.

That’s psychic awareness. The original Greek meaning of the word, psychic, is of the soul, mental. Psychic phenomena are feared by many because they occur beyond our physical senses where we can’t see them. But there are familiar expressions of psychic energy that we experience every day. Our thoughts exist in the spirit world. You can’t hold a thought in your hand. Our soul energy, the energy that drives our bodies, is spiritual energy. We are animated by the invisible energy of our spirit, which we take for granted, along with our thoughts.

One way to understand psychic energy is to label it. Psychic awareness is manifested through four expressions: precognition (inner knowing), clairaudience (inner voice or words/inner hearing), clairvoyance (mental pictures/inner vision), and clairsentience (inner feeling and sensation). Everyone has experienced all four of these expressions. Everyone uses all four of them almost every day.

Here is an exercise you can do to make your psychic perception more real. Get a piece of paper and a pen or pencil and make a list of the four means of psychic perception listed above. Then, starting at the top of the list, write down an experience with each expression. I bet you will be surprised.

While we have all four means of psychic perception, each of us uses one primarily, with the others falling in line behind it, and the primary one reflects our personality type.

If you use precognition primarily, you are very sensitive to your environment (including other people), you like to daydream, you like to sleep late and go to bed late, your office or home may be messy but you always know where things are, you often know how events or circumstances will turn out, you have prophetic dreams, you’re good at spotting trends, and you think about the future. Some of you are trance channels.

If you are primarily clairvoyant, you like order and cleanliness, many of you wear glasses, you smile when you are angry, you always look neat and attractive, you are precise, you express yourself clearly, you like schedules, you are choosey about people and things,  you think in pictures, and you can see auras (energy around people and things).

If you are primarily clairaudient, you are a natural leader, you think big and leave the details to others, you take your time to figure things out then act quickly, you can’t think clearly in messy surroundings, you look well-put-together because you like to be organized, you think in words and ideas, you don’t usually like to be touched, you hear the still, small voice within, and a person’s tone of voice tells you more about them than the words they are saying.

If you are primarily clairsentient, you are easygoing, you like comfort in clothing and in your environment, many of you are not fussy about your appearance, you are a detail person, you have a great deal of physical energy, you are friendly to everyone, you are a toucher; shaking hands with someone tells you a lot about the person, you like to be touched, you think in feelings and sensations, and you are can pick up impressions by touching or holding objects (psychometry).

Which personality type do you relate to the most? In which category would you place your family or friends? After you evaluate them, it would be fun to let them read this post and see where they would place themselves.

So, what does this mean? How can you use it in your life? That’s for next time when I will talk about how to use your sixth sense in practical ways in your everyday life.

The Big Question – What is Your Purpose?

Are you happy? This could be the most important question in your life. Here’s why – when you are happy, you are living your purpose. No kidding. Too simple, you say? What if you chose your life purpose before you were born? What if, in your subconscious mind, you know exactly what you are here for? What if you placed a code here that would reveal all the information you need to live a happy, fulfilling life?

Even if you think this is absurd, woo-woo, airy-fairy, New Age idiocy, take a few minutes to follow the simple steps below. Think of it as an experiment. You can judge the results for yourself, and if you still think it’s crazy, great. You haven’t lost anything.

I am a numerologist for one simple reason – numerology gave me a fantastic tool that helped me create the life I was meant to live – my Chaldean Soul Chart. Now, I want to reveal to you a bit of your own Chaldean Soul Chart.

We will be working with your birth name. Print your full name on a piece of paper as it appears on your birth certificate. If you are a Jr., II, or III, count this as part of your birth name, if it appears on your birth certificate. Spell out Junior, count II as 2, and III as 3, etc. Next, place the corresponding numbers from the Chaldean Conversion Code above the letters of your name, like this.

1 7 5 5   1 5 4 2 5 6   3 4 1 4 5

J o h n   A n d r e w   S m i t h

Chaldean Conversion Code

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
A B C D E U O F
I K G M H V Z P
J R L T N W
Q S X
Y

Chaldean numerology does not use the number 9 in name calculations.

Next, add together all the numbers in your first name (John = 1+7+5+5 = 18). Reduce the sum to a single digit (9). Do the same for your middle name (or names) and your last name.

Next, add the single-digit sums together and reduce that sum to a single digit. If the total adds up to 11, 22, or 33, do not reduce to a single digit. These are Master numbers that denote increased intensity and responsibility, and are interpreted as is.

Now you have the total for your birth name number. This number represents your Purpose In Life. It is your destiny, your reason for living.

Read the interpretation for your Purpose Number below and notice how familiar it feels. You will see there are positive and negative qualities about each number.

Interpretations

1.  You are a leader who came to pioneer new ways. Qualities: individuality, originality, assertiveness, leadership, courageousness, independence, and ambition; bossiness, stubbornness, impatience, willfulness, and arrogance.

2.  You are a diplomat, able to see all sides of a situation. Qualities: cooperative, adaptable, flexible, friendly, intuitive, supportive, excellent partner and team member; needy, indecisive, a pleaser. You came to bring harmony to the world. Learn to let people know exactly what you want.

3.  Your purpose is to express yourself – to be an example of the lighter side of life. Qualities: creative, artistic, dramatic, social, kind, cheerful, outgoing, imaginative, an entertainer; critical, scatterbrained, escapist, irresponsible, drama king/queen. Outlets for your self expression are speaking, teaching, writing, or performing.

5.  Your purpose is to embody freedom, sharing your enthusiasm with the world. You are the ultimate salesperson. Qualities: likeable, outgoing, versatile, adventurous, curious, clever, energetic, expansive, and sensual; glib, restless, stubborn, irresponsible, addictive, excessive, resentful. Express freedom by being true to yourself instead of trying to show the world you can’t be controlled.

6.  You are the picture of harmony and poise. Your purpose is to create harmony and balance in the world. Qualities: healer, artistic, home and family, counselor, generous, compassionate, and helpful; judgmental, self-righteous, critical, demanding, martyr. Make sure you are receiving fulfillment in everything you do.

7.  Your connection to God/Source energy is the most important thing in your life. Your purpose is to seek truth. Your curiosity makes you a natural detective. Qualities: creative, futurist, refined, detached, scholarly, introspective, poised, and aloof; critical, impatient, know-it-all, whiner, isolated. Instead of developing a superior attitude in order to shore up your self image, learn to love your magnificent self as you are.

Qualities: powerful, executive, trusted, organized, businesslike, confident, good judgment, and thorough; dictatorial, bully, narrow-minded, fear of money and material things. Instead of judging yourself and others by the amount of money and toys you/they have, consider that true wealth comes from the inside, not the outside.

9.  You are a humanitarian. Your purpose is to be of service to humanity. Qualities: compassion, altruism, empathy, generosity, philosophical, creative, passionate, and artistic; martyr, savior, lack boundaries, impractical, irresponsible. Since the Number 9 is also the number of endings, you may find yourself dealing with endings of all kinds in your life. When it seems you are not getting all the love you are giving, pull back and treat yourself to something you love.

11.  This is the number of the Master Inventor who adds electricity to the qualities of the number 2. Your purpose is to share your inspired ideas with others, helping them to be the best they can be.

22.  This is the number of the Master Builder. You are the practical mystic who makes dreams come true. Qualities: versatile, organized, diplomatic, statesman-like, leader, and practical; fear your power, needy, lazy, stubborn, undisciplined, perfectionist, arrogant.

Qualities: compassion, sensitivity, loving, artistic, creative, super sociable, and joyful; crabby, critical, judgmental, busybody. Make sure that you are receiving as much as you are giving in life.

Are you expressing your purpose? How? If not, how can you begin to allow its presence in your life?

Can you see how important it is to know who you are? How can you get the most out of your life if you are unaware of all the qualities you chose to help you succeed in extraordinary ways?

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to learn from your Chaldean Soul Chart. I hope this simple exercise has given you a glimpse of the practical side of   numerology, one of the so-called occult mysteries that may not be so mysterious after all.
