Is there a difference? Discussion

Is there a difference?

Hello, I sure hope that there’s another Reiki practitioner on this forum to help my out. nike air max 2015 donna This is something that I’ve been pondering for a few weeks now. For all the years since my Reiki attunement I’ve done all workings that can be labelled “magical” in the widest sense of the word (healings, protection, pleas for justice, money, solution to difficult situations) by using Reiki energy and an affirmation that was fitting to the problem. For long-term issues I would place a stone or a written note in a special box. From what I understand of magic so far, this is the same (?)/similar (?) energy that I’ve used so far but with a different approach. Adidas I’ve read through Scott Cunningsham’s books “Earth Power”, “Magical Household” and “Earth, Wind, Fire and Water” yesterday and often simply sat, thinking “why so complicated?” Why walking nine times around a tree, repeating a spell daily for two weeks, selecting so and so many stones, etc. oakley femme pas cher when all I would use is an affirmation and a fixation point (stone, note, a Reiki symbol visualized on a door and re-charged regularly)? I know that I can create my own spells according to what feels right for me but I’m wondering if I maybe miss something by looking at the matter through my “Reiki lenses” and dismissing this other path as something “inferior” or too troublesome. Thanks a lot for your thoughts. Landon Collins

Not everyone manipulates energy and the forces and powers that be with ease. Not everyone feels the energy or finds the connection in the beginning. Many of us must walk about the tree nine times. Some of us want to walk around the tree nine times. Some times we must feel that we are doing more than charging a stone. The work requires more effort. Todd Gurley – Georgia Bulldogs Some time our spirits and gods require that we put in the extra effort. There are many different vibrations, many different spirits, many different energies. new balance 996 bleu ciel One must learn to work with them. The different trees, the different stones, the sound and power of our voice, the elements. You may find you method to be easier, but why it is ease that you seek? Where is the satisfaction without the challenge?

Hello, I don’t seek ease. I experience that many spells I read about don’t resonate with me and try to understand where the problem is: my lack of understanding/experience with other forms of energy raising, my reluctance to do “silly” things out in the open or others.

I think a lot of lot comes down to personal style and how you learn. A lot of people have a hard time with magickal thinking and handling energy. For those people you do need lots of practice and as Vikki says walking around the tree 9 times. Nike Marxman Personally, I find the Reiki style for spellwork to be unsatisfactory. I like to do a little more work, get sweaty. I am a very physical person and very emotionally demonstrative. nike air max 90 pas cher These can be utilized and turned into strengths in my magickal workings. nike air max 2016 goedkoop I am inclined to run around the tree while shouting. That’s just me! Some people are more hands-on, as are some traditions. Typically most people need to start with all the trapping, tools, aids and running around the trees in order to eventually and gradually use less trappings and less tools etc. Chaussure Kobe Bryant
Some folks wind up learning “backwards” I am reminded of a time when I was still pretty new, I was talking about Circle casting with a friend. I had just seen her cast a Circle. Fjallraven Kanken Mini She used a wand in one hand a blade int he other and did all this big and loud breathing stuff. It looked like she was forcing the energy to rise and go where she wanted. An awful lot of work. It had never occurred to me that it should be HARD. I showed her how I did it. just being a conduit for power. It flowed from me like water from a garden hose. She couldn’t wrap her head around this idea. Her brain juts didn’t work that way. She needed to pant and sweat and push. air max pas cher And some workings are bigger than what a charged stone tucked on an altar can manage.

Re: Is there a difference?

thanks Juniper. I also keep thinking about this and how I can work my way up and try different approaches.I’m a very “in my head” person so learning to express myself more openly might be one of the many things I need to learn (and why charging a stone with a silent affirmation has more appeal to me 🙂 ) I’d like to share one of my first magical experiences, if I may: I may have mentioned it already but I was approached, among others, by tree spirits living in a tree/hegde grouping at the next town. new balance 373 uomo prezzo They were angry about the way the trees and hedges had been cut back without any consolation/consideration – that was the first I sensed. nike air max I made a small offering at one day. Drove by a few days later and “heard”: come again and do it better. So I returned, took, as instructed, a cut off branch with me (to be made into my wand) and made another offering/blessing bundle to be placed at the power place in my garden. I placed the bundle with the intent and affirmation to be a healing and a constant consolation for the spirits of the trees there. They seemed to be satisfied but about a week later I got another message: “not enough, we need one more additional offering and exchange” (I mentioned that in my posting about how to determine the intentions of a spirit). Nike kyrie 2 I asked for directions on how this offering and exchange should look like and got quite detailled instructions which I followed as best I could, making a last adjustment that felt right at that time. Made a healing bundle, placed it in the hedge, took more twigs and small branches, cleared out trash, made a pentacle from the twigs that will be used in my workings. So far this seems to have been enough for now. I worked the bundle with a mixture of knot magic (this was the last minute adjustment), air magic and Reiki charged intent. Writing this I start to believe, that there’s a lot of learning to do and that I definetively need to look at other approaches and not dismiss anything just because I can’t use it right now. goedkoop nike air max

S, It sounds like you are a wonderfully talented witch that has found what works for you. Of all advice I have seen here and other places the common denominator is always……Listen to your instincts. Do what works for you… There is nothing wrong with trying out other methods to see if it “clicks” or not. Goodness, not every system works/is appropriate for everyone. ULTRA BOOST 2017

It’s a “custom fit” just for you. Kind Regards, Kimberly

*nods” Your practice should grow, develop depth, become more flexible and varied, with a solid foundation (of tradition/repetition-until-you-can-do-it-blindfoled and your personal style). You should gradually develop more “tricks up your sleeve” over the years.
