Psychic Protection Isn't Just For Psychics

Image
Have You Ever Felt the Mood of Someone in the Room?
Psychic protection isn't just for psychics and paranoid new agers. Everyone is subject to the effects of psychic energy.

Physical energy has form we can see, feel and measure. Psychic energy generally describes what exists in non-physical form. Psychic energy contains electromagnetic energy emanating from bodily functions, emotional, mental and spiritual activity. Psychic energy can also affect us from external sources such as other people and machines.

The more sensitive among us are aware of the hum of energies emanating from within and without. A regular routine of actions promoting protection can help to turn the volume down on a world that can sometimes be too aggravating.

At Home
Traffic, neighbours, kids, dogs, garden machines and insensitive horn blowers can smash the peace of our home sanctuaries. There isn't a lot we can do about the noise but there are a few things that can help us to distance these intrusions.

Plane of Inspiration

Just beyond this place To where these things begin Formation words are traced
Flowing forth with grace Turning self within Formation words are traced
Feelings interlaced Words becoming things Just beyond this place.
Thoughts will only chase Linguistic offerings Formation words are traced
They will never waste There for all to sing Just beyond this place
Claim them clear with haste Give these words some wings Just beyond this place

My Response to Setback

If I am knocked off my feet
I will walk on my hands.

If I am knocked off my hands
I will stand on my head.

Whether I am walking on my feet
or standing on  my head,
I will keep on flipping forward.

One granted the power of fire,
Will be driven by its combustion.

Majickal Bellydance Workshop Information

The Seven Circles
of Majickal Bellydance with Leanne Margaret Join us as we thaw the winter chills and begin raising energy ready to devote to spring’s beginning. The Seven Circles Workshop will take place as the Winter Solstice passes and the Sun begins to lengthen our days Focusing on our own private dance enjoyment, the Seven Circles Workshop is 2 hours of energy raising dance with some meditation breaks to contemplate our inner experience and rest the body. It dances like a taster workshop, including a warm up session and progressive dance drills to awaken the whole body and spirit. The majick is in the meditation, drawing the dancer progessively into herself, where the circles can be felt and articulated into natural spiralling movements that need no instruction, once found within. Participants need to be warm and comfortable, as dance drill sessions will be interspersed with carpeted floor rest. Dress in layers. Exercise clothing with a fitted top and soft scarf around the hips is ade…

The Esoteric Meaning of Coming 7 Circles Workshop

I am preparing for an afternoon of gentle, casual, lounge-worthy bellydance in a toasty warm and homey Healesville yoga studio. Details to follow in next post............... The last six years of my dance journey has turned my attention toward the inner realms of the dance of life.Your gift from the underworld of my experience is improved understanding of blocks that can distract energy away from otherwise well executed dance movements. Often these blocks exist on levels that are non-physical in origin; hence no amount of dance drills can loosen these energies until they are understood at their own level of reality. 

I have found that it is not always possible or appropriate to remove physical blocks for various reasons. Dancers will work within the boundaries of their own body, gently coaxing energy into fluidty only as comfortable and safe. This means Majickal Bellydance is suitable for all levels of fitness.

I have developed the Seven Circles Workshop to initiate awareness of the mul…

Bellydancing Yogi on Obsessions and Passions in Empty Nests

Majickal Bellydance is resting, not forgotten.  For now I have a new obsession: Yoga. Yoga isn't new to me. As dance teachers we borrow many yoga poses or 'asanas,' performing the movements as stretches for warming up and cooling down, rarely emphasising the breath practices or 'pranayamas.'
My yoga mat had lay mostly rolled into dusty storage for long enough to raise a child. My daughter now focussed firmly on her own burgeoning life and my last bellydance class for now at the end of 2015, I needed a brand new obsession.

Having finally finished writing my first book I showed up still in writer's rapture to my friend and colleagues yoga class. I had taught bellydance at her beautiful yoga studio in the past, www.yarravalleyyogaschool.com, but had only attended a few yoga workshops. I had been struggling for several years with P.T.S.D (Post-traumatic stress disorder), keeping mobile through my years of illness by tailoring my dance classes toward health and by …

The Book

I'm resting in the quiet place created as the peak of creative accomplishment subsides.

The long reached for celebration of submitting my first book manuscript to a publisher is a bittersweet thing. During the creation of a final draft I experienced some of the most peaceful moments of my life. Transitioning from those moments of pure hope and idealism, to the slow reality of the physical world of manifestation is a drag. It can be hard to keep my hope strong.

Fortunately the principles contained within the book itself help to keep my mind focussed on the meaning and purpose of my chosen life path. I would love to discuss my new book but the time is not right. I hope to splash the principles of love, lovingly crafted by me, far and wide soon enough.

Being a determined sort, no matter what dark mood threatens to bind my forward motion, I know from past history, that forward I will continue to move. For someone as easily bored as me, moving is the only way, forward the preferable d…
