After last night’s blog about the need to maintain spiritual practice especially during difficult times, I have to post this.
In addition to my rather brief evening prayers, I did a little energy work last night. Ground, center, connect with the Earth below and the Sky above. Draw in energy, store some, use most of it on a basic shielding exercise. I use a version taught by OBOD, but it’s the same basic technique used by just about every Pagan, Wiccan, or Western Mystery Tradition practitioner I’ve come across. I went to bed feeling… safe.
Now, I was prepared (in the mundane sense of the term) for both meetings – I had my stuff together. But I’ve had my stuff together lots of times recently and still had people fly off the handle. Maybe I just caught these people on a good day, or maybe they’re tired of yelling, or maybe they realized all the ranting hadn’t made things better so they’d try something else. Maybe.
Or maybe, the magic worked.
Off to do some more energy work…
