I feel like a bear. I am grumpy and all I want to do is eat and eat and then sleep for like a year. I have not been doing my nightly routing of shielding and boy can I tell. I am one grumpy gus. I think this has something to do with the overall panic and anger that is rippling though our country. I can tell there is a shift going on and it is interesting and at times annoying. We start to see shows on TV about prepping and we seem to all be walking around with some sort of chip on our shoulder. I have no idea why but like I said I can feel it and it has been making me grumpy. I am sure a little Saint John’s Wort would be good too, that and probably like a whole nights sleep.
like many witches I am shall we say sensitive. I know we all are right. Some days I just want to say “yes, yes you are all very pretty” (Tina Fey in Mega Mind) To all the folks that list their natural abilities. Of course you have natural abilities, all humans do. What ever ability you have doesn’t make you special. What you do with it and how you live your life make you special. But I digress. So we are all sensitive and if I don’t shield it all globs on.
This is why I used to only work alone. But hey with age comes wisdom and skill and I have learned to shut the door as Elfkat says. Only I have gotten sloppy and I have not being closing up shop properly at night and so here I am a grumpy scatter brained tired fool.
This is my simple shielding that I (normally) do nightly. This is what works for me and you can take it as you like and do what works for you. After my day is done and i am laying in bed I shut my eyes and see my house. Some times I will use words and say in my head the first part of my circle casting. When I do it that way I picture a gold shining tread of light coming out of me and spiraling up and around so that the whole house and most of the property is covered by this tread. Some times I just envision a glowing spear over my house. Always a bright sharp blue. I see it bright and protected inside and dark and reflective on the outside of the this membrane.
I should tell you that as I said this is what works for me. It also “came to me” you know how that happens. I laid in bed and asked to be shown what to do and there it was. If you lay in bed and ask what you need to be shown it may be very different.
