My respected colleague, Gwendolyn Holden Barry, just shared her thoughts about my new book Green Witchcraft Grimoire… “I’ve practiced witchcraft, in independence and gathering from the many traditions of our multiple ancestors, for more than 30 years. When I began my personal journey into the past to anchor my own search with Earth-based spiritual expressions, my good friend on pages was Scott Cunningham. Amythyst’s grimoire has the foundational information and guidance Cunningham brought to our community so long ago. Elementary flow, inspiration to grow! Amythyst gives a witch the basic tools for growth and an awareness that helps to provide the window within where witchcraft waits to be expressed.” ―Gwendolyn H. Barry, blender and owner, Daughters of Isis
Thank you Gwendolyn for your support and kind words! I can’t wait to hear what the rest of you think, too.
How I can separate myself from other people’s energy.
9/swords; 5/wands; Queen of cups
Get a grip on your emotions.Avoid confrontation.Learn how to chill. The easiest way to keep yourself separated from other people’s problematic energy is to stay away from those people. It isn’t always easy to cut people from your life, but there are particular situations that warrant this when you’re looking out for your own welfare, such as friends or family that are actually enemies in disguise; ex-partners that want to keep a connection going, a connection that makes moving forward and beginning something new difficult or impossible; or co-workers that are either subconsciously causing unnecessary stress, or co-workers that are deliberately trying to poke the bear. These are but a few types of people and energies that you have to learn to separate yourself from to sustain a comfortable and happy existence in your life, and some of these people will be easier to cut than others.
Petty confrontation, bickering, constantly have to feel on guard, or feeling the need to defend yourself can all lead to an absorption of negative energy. Find ways to remove yourself from conversation, situations, or groups of people that lean toward petty bickering or other negative exchanges. Learn to walk away. There’s an unexpected perk in being able to do this. You’ll discover that this puts you in a position to view an individual or situation from a unique perspective, where you may find answers or solutions.
For very sensitive, and even empathic individuals, there are ways to protect yourself from negative energy and negative people. Magickally speaking, here are just a few suggestions: smudge yourself and your living space often; take salt baths with a pinch of rosemary and lavender added to the water; burn white candles; leave small bowls of sea salt sit in each room of your home; carry a mojo bag filled with sea salt, a clear quartz crystal, as well as an ample pinch of sage, rosemary, and hyssop; burn sandalwood incense on a daily basis. Any, or all of these magickal band-aids will help you to separate yourself from the negative energies that come with difficult, high-strung, or co-dependent individuals.
Something I can do in the moment to top absorbing unwanted emotions.
How I can remain grounded in my own energy.
Something to remember when I want to set energetic boundaries.
How I can use my energy sensitivity to help myself & others.
