Life a little upside down after finishing a Reiki class? reiki practitioner, reiki practitioner

After finishing Reiki you become more sensitive to energy, Chi. I’ve found over the years that those who enter into metaphysical studies may go through a number of trials, although not the same for all, including losing their job, losing their friends, having their love life turn upside down and separating from family. Here are a few tips to add to your items to watch out for and maintain in order for your life to go more smoothly.

1. Feng Shui. Follow this link to go into my blog specifically on this subject for more detail. As you become sensitive to others’ energies you’ll start to notice the energy of your home as well. As good feng shui can benefit you, inauspicious (negative) energy may not. I recommend looking around the home and check the elements (water, metal, fire, wood) you have in each of your corners and sides. I’ve heard of some clients even having tragedies happen to their family members after moving to a new home with inauspicious energy. Good feng shui can bring positive things to you automatically so it is something good to look after for that reason as well. I can also remotely scan your home and tell you of any problem areas you may have. Schedule a reading with me and we can discuss further.

2. Turn off feeling the 2nd and 3rd Plane of Existence for a while. 1st plane is crystals, rocks, soil and other inorganic materials on earth. 2nd plane consists of plants, nature spirits and elementals. 3rd plane is humans and animals. Crystals, shells and other earth, water, fire and air nature spirits work very well in the healing process. However not everything in these planes (plants, animals, humans) are happy or healthy. You might want to turn off feeling these planes after meditation or healing. Need further instruction on how to do this? Schedule a reading with me here, email, text and over the phone readings are available.

3. Clairsentient Maintenance. As you scan, absorb, heal and read others you need to cleanse your energies and return your own back to you. Here is my detailed blog on how to do this.

4. Ask to stop absorbing energies from others. This was revealed to me after a reading and a healing. Ask Archangel Raphael to come to you and have you stop absorbing the energies of others. You may feel the healing around your mid back around the heart and solar plexus. Be calm and allow the healing to continue until you feel it is done.

5. Ground. Can’t emphasize this enough. Think of grounding as washing off your spiritual windshield. When you cleanse the energies of others off of it, you can see clearer and feel more like yourself and less like others. When you are out of healing, meditations, and readings, be sure to do a proper and thorough grounding. This will protect you from weight gain, mania and lack of focus (brain fog). It could save your job and your life path. Follow this link to my grounding article.

Working with Archangels versus Wicca

When I formally trained to do readings for others I worked mostly with archangels and ascended masters like Jesus because that’s how I was taught. Different beings on the second or first planes (fairies, gnomes, elves, elementals and nature spirits) have popped in and out of my life on occasion for different reasons, either I would be studying or researching different beings and I’d see them clairvoyantly or through my own meditations. Since I majored in zoology in college and being interested in nature, I have a strong connection with animals or nature in general. The second and first planes of existance, as they call it in Theta healing, pops up strongly for me from time to time, and many times it is a positive experience. The vibration and feelings associated with being on a more grounded level and seeing on that level versus going to a higher vibrational level to doing mediumship reading can feel and clairvoyantly look different.

Ultimately, I wanted to pass along some information I obtained during a reading I had with a client recently. Essentially the client was asking if she should look into Wiccan spells for protection after she’s been using Angels, Archangels and Saints previously. What I saw as advice in this reading was when you go to the second plane to ask for something (protection or love, etc) the reason why it doesn’t always work well or something negative may happen is the second plane can reflect to us (mirror) the things we need to work on, in other words our belief systems and fears. They showed this to me by having a small being representing a nature spirit or elemental presumably holding a mirror up.

I received the concept of if you’re not ready and you haven’t worked on your belief systems they may reflect something back to you that you don’t want. It has been explained to me in the past that elementals and nature spirits help us manifest some of the things we want and can react automatically to our energies, although I have seen that in some cases they can control what happens. The next concept I received was when you work with the Angelic plane or higher they can adjust for your belief systems (I see an angel sidestepping obstacles) and they can bypass them so that you get more of what you really are looking for not necessarily what you may be asking for (if its not quite what is right for you) or even what you fear. I thought that was very interesting and worthy to pass along for those of you looking into the different areas of metaphysics, energy and magic.

The general message was that it’s not necessarily “wrong” or “evil” to ask for help on the second plane but to be careful and to try not to do it when you don’t feel prepared with your belief systems and haven’t worked on some of your fears. Go in with the right intentions, with peaceful or kind intentions and then that may be a safer manifesting route for you. If you are looking for a quick way to heal your beliefs and fears blocking or affecting your abilities, I recommend theta which I provide over the phone and skype here.

Elemental Series IV: Air Elementals and Nature Spirits

Photo Source: Psychic Medium Andrea Knight. I took this when I left work one day back in 2014. Looked like angel wings to me. Do not copy or link, all rights reserved.

Air is an important element that many people forget about as it is mostly invisible. You notice it on a hot day and the breeze comes in to cool you down, and when you hear it pass through the trees, rustling the leaves. However many times it is forgotten or passed over due to it being less visible. sylph, sylph, sylph

Intelligence and mental clarity

Air in most metaphysical literature is mentioned as being excellent to call upon when the user needs help with intelligence and mental clarity. There are references to the name “sylph” as one type of air elemental. In my grounding article I speak of mental clarity and how grounding can help with mental clarity and focus. In that process you use all 4 elements to achieve a grounded state. I’ve found a combination of fire and air can really aid in achieving mental clarity fast, but for sustained grounding and clarity I would recommend using all 4 elements in your visualization along with empathic clearing (article here). Feathers, birds, and other winged insects can also be signs or symbols for air.

Air elementals may also be part of the raising vibrations process.

Static Electricity

I did once see an image where an Air Elemental was pushing what looked like static electricity away and transforming it into some other energy that was less intense. Sometimes EMF, static electricity and radiation can create energetic blocks to be cleared during energy healing. Once a nurse who worked with large electronics for work felt significantly better once blocks due to EMF, static and radiation were removed during a theta session. If you are interested in theta healing I perform it over distance. You can sign up for a theta healing here.

Mood

Air elementals can also affect how a person feels as in the temperature of the room as well as mood. If you are comfortable with working on this plane, I’ve found sprites are some of the best for transforming the energy in a room or place into positive energy.

Other benefits

During a reading I asked those crossed over to show me how air elementals can help people depending on the level in their hierarchy. I received a vision of someone who looked like a sultan or king. When I asked how they can best help us if we were looking for aid I was shown many of the things you might guess, such as to cool a person’s temperature down, and to move negative energy particles in the air via wind.

Other benefits shown to me were removing negative energy from an area or person by carrying it elsewhere by dispersing it, healing, as well as carry clairaudient messages over distances. They showed me they have a role in lightning as well as receiving a few images of winged spiritual beings being a part of this group. Their group does like to party or have social occasions. Their energy can be used sometimes to lead people in another direction, remind them of something forgotten and to avoid danger. It has also been brought to my attention that they are one of the spiritual being types responsible for aid in sexual arousal, including some earth, and water beings.

When asking Jesus and my archangels about Air Elementals I received that they work with water a lot, which actually makes sense if you think about the cycle of water (water evaporating to the clouds, creating rain where it returns to earth, etc). I saw an image of wind currents and how they can influence what direction they can go around the world. They also showed me that they are in the cells of living beings and can fill in between the spaces of the organelles. They are also helpful in areas of love/romance healing and clairvoyance.

Higher level Air Elementals have shown themselves to me as Sultans, or can appear as other royal figures like Kings or Queens, and can be very good at helping with this plane.

Elementals Series II: Undines and Mermaids

Photo Source: Andrea Knight, @mediumandreaknight

I noticed an unusual amount of activity around me recently and clairvoyantly I was seeing white flashes during my readings, more than usual. Previously I was visited by the Fire King and I was in the middle of writing about Elementals. I was in a Theta state and I asked who it was. I saw a picture of water clairvoyantly and I saw the word “undines”. Then they presented themselves to me in a way that I would understand, kind of like a blue humanoid with a flowing skirt beneath them which I recognized from an image I had seen previously done by an artist. I also heard the sound of water moving back and forth like the ocean.

I asked them what they helped with on Earth and at first they told me that I wouldn’t understand, which I agreed with respect. However I asked them if they helped clean up some of the pollution and negative energy in the water and they responded in the affirmative. The undines then showed me visually the stars in the sky and I saw them twinkling. They said that they helped make the stars shine. When I asked what this meant I saw someone’s eyeball and the water in their eye.  Other duties they mentioned that some undines may be responsible for included to help cool down the air, clean energy, heal, control fire, and cool down fire.  When I go to the ocean oftentimes I will see a soul mate clairvoyantly appear or even on one occasion I was asked out on a date.  There seems to be a connection with the ocean and soul mates / romance.

Mermaids

I noticed a pattern that every time I visited the Pacific Ocean my heart would hurt and I intuitively realized that it was connected to pollution and other negative energy water was handling. I thought to send the ocean and it’s energies a blessing to help with this.  The following night I started seeing mermaids very clearly clairvoyantly when I lay in bed and closed my eyes. I hadn’t seen them before that and I was surprised because honestly I didn’t think they were “real” metaphysically or physically.  After that they appeared a couple more times, usually connected with when I sent blessings to ocean pollution cleanup efforts. 

A positive way of garnering a nature spirit or an elemental’s attention is by asking God to send blessings to pollution cleanup in the area of your choice. Once I sent blessings to the trees and it rained for 2 weeks.  Shortly there after they sent me a romantic option who’s occupation was as an arborist (San Diego at the time was in a long drought so this was unprecedented).  Trees are discussed more in my other article about earth spirits.

When asking for high level water elementals to tell me about beings in their plane, the being that presented himself looked like a pharaoh, but said he could look like any royal figure.  Another being that looked like King Titan from the Little Mermaid showed up to give guidance as well, so these high level beings typically like to present themselves as royalty as said before.

Grounding, Basics

One common side effect of being ungrounded is a lack of mental clarity, where it is hard to concentrate and focus as you used to (light headedness). Here are some common symptoms of being ungrounded:

-Loss of focus

-Feeling less intelligent

-Swift changing moods

-Hunger that can’t be satisfied

-Feeling more drained or fatigued than you’ve ever felt

-Anxieties that are not explainable

-Feeling everything and everyone around you

I talk a lot about grounding, and I’ve included additional methods and modes in the past, but I haven’t done a basic grounding blog as I figured it has been covered quite a bit on the internet. However, it has come up multiple times this past week so I decided to get it done. There are many YouTube meditations on this as well.

Do this when you get up in the morning and whenever you feel you are getting less grounded again. Grounding does not negatively affect your metaphysical abilities, think of it as you are washing them off in a waterfall, washing away the psychic “dirt” and when you come up again you can see clearer. Hopefully that helps some of you with your fears of grounding. If you have other fears of grounding, ask your archangels to heal them on all levels before you go to bed for the next 7 nights.

Method:

First imagine God sweeping away all the energies from the environments, family, friends, strangers that you may have absorbed and sprinkling them back towards where they came from. Then imagine any energy that you’ve left behind in the environment and with other people, including those you think a lot about like soulmates, coming back to you in a transmuted positive form, commonly seen in green.

Close your eyes and visualize black cords from the core of the earth extend up until they hook on to your feet, hips and end of your spine. I usually ask for this connection to core for 24 hours and wait for mother earth to acknowledge with a check mark clairvoyantly. Visualize the rest of your body turn into the branches and the leaves, extending into your energy field and your energy field turning a dark green as well as the rest of your body. Visualize air blowing away any energetic debris, then a waterfall wash over you to toss energies to the ground where they become soaked into the earth. Lastly visualize green fire surrounding you and your energy field, dissolving any negative energy or energies that no longer serve you. Using this process you will have used all 4 elements.

Imagine antennae that extend from the crown of your head open to a river of energy above you, representing the energy of others, their thoughts another spiritual information. Imagine those antennae retracting down back into your head.

Lastly if you’ve been doing a lot of spiritual work I highly recommend visualizing God turning down a nobb like you’re turning down the volume of something until you feel your energy become more grounded and less high vibrational. This will help bring you peace as well.

Sometimes after a very ungrounding reading I’ll take an actual shower, and light candles asking for grounding, open windows for air to blow in and put black stones in my pockets for additional intention. You should feel your feet become heavier, like putting on heavier boots and they should stay that way for the length of the time you ask. Lastly, visualize any portals open in your home closing (or around you if outside the home). I usually see a field of energy sweep through the home, closing any portals as it scans through like a copy machine.

You can also visualize your home grounding its energy as well. I usually see a forest in the home, with a stream of water in the middle, campfire, lightning bugs in the air, air blowing through the forest rustling the leaves. This way you are incorporating all 4 elements in your grounding visualization.

There are other guided meditations for grounding online but they do take rather a long period of time. In the morning I usually like to get going, so you can do this in the shower or in bed. Also, if you are clairsentient, check out my blog on how to maintain your energies so you can clear more of what no longer serves you.

Elementals and Nature Spirits Series III: Earth Elementals, Trees, Gnomes and Elves

In the morning I was visited by a gnome who very pleasantly led me outside the door on my way to errand running. He wanted to make himself known, I think he was hinting at what was to come. I knew gnomes were associated with the ground and earth but did not often see them so clearly before this. In the evening I was visited by a being that looked like a combination of red and charred black lava. In a very pleasant voice he said that he was of Earth. I asked him what does he do and he said that he makes homes for little people. I said is that like caves for physical people, and then I remembered he said “little” people, so I asked him if it was for elementals instead, and he confirmed it was. He showed me an image of soil as if you cut the Earth in half, like seeing an ant farm in a glass case, and I saw little beings in soil. I think this was representative of what this Earth Elemental helps do, which was help out other elementals and nature spirits with where they reside. I asked him how he did this and he said he “shifts”. Then I saw lightning which is usually representative of energy, sometimes associated with the fire elementals. I asked him if he did anything else and I received no. I found that interesting. He seemed to have a very specific, focused responsibility. I suspect there’s probably other Earth elementals and nature spirits who do clean up the energy in the soil, who will make themselves known to me down the line.

When talking to Jesus and my archangels later on I asked specifically if I understood what this Earth Elemental was telling me about making places for Elementals to live in. Jesus showed me a bubble around a spirit and then I saw energy in which for them to live. I asked if there’s a difference between the elemental I spoke to and the ones that actually clean up the energy in the soil and I received a yes. I also received that elementals and other natural spirits help with maintaining the energy in the rocks and the crystals that are used for meditation. Earlier when I was doing a blog on fire elementals I did note that they were responsible for transferring energy. I asked if fire elementals help with the energies in crystals and stones as well. The answer was yes.

Gnomes and Elves for grounding

Five months later, I was having trouble grounding, the reason being I was around a lot of stressed people and electronics. When you are really grounded your legs and feet should feel heavy, particularly your feet, and your head should feel more clear. I tried to imagine the different elemental/nature spirits that I knew of to see which was more helpful in this endeavor. In my experience, the two that consistantly help me ground are gnomes and elves. I picture them around my feet working away. An elf was one of the first natural spirits to make themselves known to me when I started my energy healing courses. If you ever have fear when thinking about elementals or nature spirits think of them as cute best you can (I often visualize them as smurfs). That will help you feel more affection and kindness towards them.

Trees

Trees are quiet, but powerful beings.  When I was feeling particularly grateful to trees one week I decided to send a blessing to the trees within San Diego.  It was in thanks for making the energy in San Diego so positive and inviting.  Unexpected, and not asked for, I received something back.  It rained for a good two weeks, after a long drought.  The amount of rain was unprecedented and much needed for the county.  Shortly thereafter, within a week, I also was introduced to a new love opportunity, someone that was employed as an arborist.

The lesson here is if you want something in your life, sometimes it helps to give out blessings to others ( I ask God to send out the blessing in a way that doesn’t harm others best as possible rather than I sending my energy).  You can send out blessings with what I want in return in mind (give to someone else what you want such as a money blessing, or good health) or sometimes because you appreciate what they have done for you.  Often times I am visited afterwards by a spiritual being thanking me, without asking for it.  Trees are good for grounding; I have been shown a vision of downward pointing green arrows while at the zoo to use as a visualization when you want to be more grounded.  You can touch a tree and ask it out loud to help you ground, releasing the energy that is not yours and no longer serving you.  Different species of trees (Pine vs Eucalyptus) are good at different tasks as well, which is a blog unto itself.  I have often received images of trees carrying messages over distances between themselves, so they have a method of communicating with each other.

Saying Thanks

Want to give something back? You can say out loud that you appreciate them and all they do. You can do a candle ritual with an offering such as organic berries, nuts, chocolate and crystals. If you do leave an offering, clean it up the next morning. I was told they get offended if you leave it there to rot or collect dust.  Lastly you can imagine God blessing the earth with blue, green, and pink energy, then visualize God cleaning up the pollution in the sky, water, and earth.

Earth can help with:* 

  1. Grounding – my article on grounding specifically can be found here
  2. Mental Clarity – Think of clearing any unnecessary energy in your legs, feet and pelvis, imagine those areas a nice clean red color.  If you want to concentrate on your mind or head for mental clarity think of the element of air or indigo/purple, only after you’ve cleared your bottom chakras for free flowing energy.  Helps to include air with mental clarity rituals.
  3. Binding or protection from negative energy
  4. Cleansing of energies – crystals or people
  5. Abundance and Money – feng shui says to put a plant in your south east corner as “wood” and crystals such as quartz help with financial abundance.
  6. Getting over addictions – this makes sense as it grounds you and cleans energies, grounding helps one to be less anxious and less afraid

High level beings from this plane said they like to present themselves as Kings and Queens, but not as Sultans like Air and Fire.
