Dressing with Intent

Dressing with Intent for Empaths:

Empathy is the ability to read and understand people and be in-tune with or resonate with others, voluntarily or involuntarily of one’s Empath capacity.

You May Be An Empath If…

  1. You look at someone and just know their emotional state.
    2.You can feel the energy coming at you (or being drained) from another person, especially from the eyes.
    3. You have a blocked feeling in your chest [or core], as if someone is tugging on it.
    4. Tend to run away from people when stressed, rather than engage.
    5. You’ve been called “oversensitive,” especially if you’re male.
    6. Always know where danger may lurk. (Curiously, you may have avoided accidents).
    7. Are drawn to the tranquility of animals.
    8. Are drawn to mountains, nature, or the ocean – anywhere outdoors.
    9. Cannot bear violence in any form.
    10. Can easily produce tears, sometimes at will.
    11. You can feel the physical aches & pains of others.
    12. Feel better after a good, intense cry.
    13. See things from the “bigger picture” and from “the larger scheme of things.”
    14. Are overwhelmed by large crowds or mobs (e.g. shopping malls).
    15. Can sometimes feel affected by the energy of the full moon.
    16. Have intense, fantastic, and sometimes lucid, dreams.

If this sounds like you…You’re not alone.

The number one key is to STAY GROUNDED in your body. This means getting regular exercise, eating nutritional food, and cutting out over stimulating things in your life.  Walk outside barefoot!

How holding onto emotions can harm you:

Anger-weakens the liver

Grief-weakens the lungs

Worry-weakens the stomach

Stress-weakens the heart and brain

Fear-weakens the kidneys

They are the invisible cause of much suffering physically and emotionally.

Manage Your Empathic Tendencies

Using your morning ritual to “greet the new day” and importance of properly clearing yourself and proper shielding. Ideas to start your day: run a selenite wand through your auric field and then wash your hands using salt (visualize any excess energy gathering in the salt and being washed away by the water) when showering allow the water to clear your aura and wash it down through the Violet flame filter on the drain (to transmute it), while putting on lotion…say affirmations, while dressing visualize chakra clearing (I also say an affirmation as I put on my medicine bag and putting crystals in pocket).  I found the following worked for me when I was working outside my home, when I returned home after work, I would clear my aura with a selenite wand and burn sage to smudge with.

Ask your guides to tone down the messages you are receiving from others…you still receive the message but don’t have to take on someone else’s gunk.

Carry crystals with you Black Tourmaline, Sugilite, Shamanite Black Calcite or any you are drawn too! Create a crystal grid in your sacred space. Green Tourmaline has many benefits for all the Zodiac Signs.  It brings Air signs down to earth.  It offers endurance to the Fire signs.  It enables Earth signs to feel in a constant state of prosperity, and it balances the emotions of Water signs.

Use essential oils or incorporating the use of specific flower essences can help ease feelings of overwhelming or anxiousness associated with empathic natures.

Empath Essences

  • Yarrow– Energy Shield. Yarrow is a stabilizing remedy. It can help to shield anyone who is extra sensitive or vulnerable from energies that could deplete their personal space.
  • Mountain Pennyroyal– Mountain Pennyroyal remedy is a protective agent that gives clarity of mind and blocks negative energies. It can also assist the Empath cleanse and purge energies that have already been picked up. Expels negativity and psychic attachments.
  • Pink Yarrow– Pink Yarrow remedy helps anyone needing to create emotional boundaries. It allows a person to remain compassionate to the needs of others without taking on their burdens.
  • Dandelion– Dandelion remedy serves as a laundering service for washing away painful emotions. It allows emotional sludge to move through the body and get tossed away much like how dirt gets removed from clothing when it is laundered.

Lughnasadh Altar outside full

Items needed: sage, sweetgrass, abalone shell, feather fan, flame, staff, and altar, candles in green, yellow, red, and blue, purple.  Items to represent each of the elements placed on the altar (dish of salt, bell, candle, water) item to represent for Lord and Lady, Golden Lion Anointing Oil, corn husk, pen, cauldron, orange candle for Lord and Lady, bread/crackers, apple cider, offering plate and chalice

To prepare properly for the ritual, be sure to take a cleansing purifying bath using herbs and crystals or spray self with Grounding Mist spray.

Prepare the Circle: Sweep negative energy out widdershins (counter clockwise) with broom.  State that intent with every sweep. Then start to Sage deosil (clockwise) with sage and sweet grass stating the intent to draw positive energy in.

Casting the Circle: visualize white light coming from sky above and then use the staff to mark the circle walking deosil (clockwise) three times (once for protection, once for focus, and once for power) the white light increasing to cover the sacred space.

Calling the Watchtowers:  As each Watchtower is welcomed, light the candle.

Welcome Watchtowers of the North, of Earth.
I ask that you bring your gifts of patience, endurance, stability, and prosperity to this circle.

Welcome Watchtowers of the East, of Air.

Anoint self with Golden Lion oil

Light the orange candle while saying:

“On this first day of August, I light a candle to celebrate the harvest.

As the wheel of the year turns and the days start to grow shorter, I honor the Lord and Lady and thank them for the blessings and prosperity they have brought to me this year.”

 (Take bite of bread and offer to Lord and Lady on a plate, take sip of apple cider and offer to them)

“I honor those who came before me, and all things living on this earth.”

Think of a trait you wish to change in yourself and write it on a piece of corn husk, after reciting spell, put in cauldron and burn it.

“With this pen, I ask for guidance,

To remain heart centered in the Light,

And as the husk burns away that which I released to change.”

Full Moon Energy to make items for your home

I like to make items during the Full Moon to integrate the energy into what I am making.

I will share my recipes for the items I made today for my household.

HOMEMADE  LAUNDRY DETERGENT

Ingredients for a one gallon container (one gallon = 16 cups).  Adjust as needed for your size.

1/4 Cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

1/4 Cup Arm & Hammer Pure Baking Soda

1/4 Cup Dr Bronner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soap

Large Glass Container

Purification Essential Oil

 

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the Washing Soda and Baking Soda with enough hot water until it is dissolved.
  2. Pour this into your laundry detergent container.
  3. Fill the container with warm water almost to the top, leaving a couple inches of space at the top.
  4. Pour in the Castile Soap and gently mix.
  5. Add your Essential Oil and mix again.
  6. Keep a wooden spoon or something similar with the container so you can give the detergent a quick stir before using each time.
  7. Use 1/3 of a cup of the detergent according to your washing machine’s instructions.

 

Lemon + Clove Sink Scrub

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil
  • 10 drops clove essential oil
  • castile soap (this is not added to the baking soda until it’s used)
  • Container with a shaker top

 


Fizzy Toilet Bombs

Mix the baking soda and citric acid together in a small bowl. The next step is to add the water and essential oils to the mixture. To minimize the fizzing action, use a small spray bottle that produces a fine mist.

Gently mist and stir the dry mixture until all of the oils have been added. Test the mixture at this point by squeezing some in your fist. If it isn’t clumping very well, put a little more water in the spray bottle and wet it down some more, but just until it can form a good clump in your hand.

Then, pour the mixture into your silicone mold of choice, and pack each cell down firmly. Allow the bombs to dry for several hours, then remove them gently from the mold and they’re ready to use!

If you’re having a particularly rough day due to allergies, drop one of these “bombs” into a bowl of hot, steamy water. Put your face over the bowl and drape a large towel over your head to trap in all the beneficial, steamy goodness for about 5-10 minutes. (One small tip: peppermint can be a little bit sting-y so it’s best to keep your eyes shut!) This steam treatment will help calm irritated skin around the eyes and nose, and will help open up your airways and reduce congestion.
