Hi, and welcome to psychedelicwizard.org . You will find a lot of interesting topics and posts here. Let me introduce my new assistant Anita. I’m paying her a decent wage, so don’t worry about that.
What does archetype mean? It is a concept in areas which relates to behaviour, historical psychology and literature analysis. Archetypes can be: a pattern of behaviour, prototype or main model that other patterns of behaviour and objects copy or merge into. A ‘standard example.’ It can be a platonic concept of pure form, embodied the fundamental characteristics of a thing. A collectively-inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought that is universally present within individual psyches. Recurring symbol or motif in literature, painting or mythology.
Archetypes are close analogies to instincts. Believed that long before any consciousness develops, the impersonal and inherited traits of human beings that present and motivate behaviour. So, we can see that it means, original pattern from which copies are made.
Archetypes are most commonly used in writing, literature. By using archetypes or specific archetypes within fiction writing, such as the hero, it can help the writing become universally accepted. Readers will relate to and identify with the characters and situations. Some archetypes used in writing stories include: overcoming the monster, rags to riches, the quest, voyage and return, comedy, tragedy, rebirth.
Do you know what your archetype is? Do you like to write about a particular archetype more than others? How are you today?
In a recent post I talked about the possibility of being able to see angelic beings. It is fascinating the idea that there are actual intelligent beings out there, from the creator, who are sent to aid and guide us. I am going to talk briefly about something called numerology, which concerns meanings in numbers.
Numerology is the pseudo-scientific belief in a divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events.
You might be interested in reading more about numerology at the following link:
Angels are supernatural beings who are the servants of God. The bible is filled with passages of how they communicated with humans. In the bible, they are not women or children as depicted in art and statues of society, rather they are given names and those names are associated with males, such as Gabriel and Uriel. Uriel was responsible for warning Noah of the coming flood.
Angels and numbers are said to tie into one another, with angelic being supposedly communicating with humans using numbers. It is a particularly special way for angels to send messages to us, because not everyone will notice, and not everyone will care what the potential significance of seeing the numbers is. Understanding the meaning of the numbers however, will allow you to communicate with your angels and guides.
Angelic numbers are the most commonly experienced signs from the angels, and most of the time people do not expect this as they are under the illusion that angels appear in more obvious ways, which is simply not correct. To see numbers repeatedly could be angels trying to alert you to their presences, or a coincidence. Faith and intuition are big factors in how you perceive the situation, and how you feel about it. Repeatedly seeing numbers can be a reminder to tune into the meditative and relaxed state to lift your vibration to connect with a higher level of guidance from your angel, who is with you.
They give guidance frequently, through other means too. Angels can channel messages directly to us, in dreams or through an insight. It is not uncommon to get flashes of inspiration or to learn something from them during meditation, any of the psychic senses allow you to perceive the messages.
But what numbers mean what? When communicated, can be easily missed and even seeing them might mean nothing if someone is not aware of the phenomenon of the meanings or value of numbers. The universe is one of numbers, of symbols, so it makes sense to communicate with them. When you are unsure what a repeating number means, or a number that it shown to you quite blatantly, you need to understand it. You could look it up on the internet, or you could try and interpret it yourself. Angel numbers are distinctly different although similar to numerology – angel numbers being a carrier of divine messages. You can read a little more here:
0 – a sign you are connected with God and that everything is about to go your way, you have chosen the right path and are heading toward becoming a better version of yourself. 1 – that you may be dealing with negativity. 2 – that you should be optimist and have faith in yourself, hold on, because things will get better.
Numbers 11, 22, 33.
11 – Continuing to see this number is an indication you are nearing a period of fulfilling your true purpose in life.
22 – A sign from the angel that you are about to turn your dreams into reality. You are about to gain divine knowledge, and an indication that you must have faith in your angels.
33 – Reminding you that divine source has blessed you with increased ability to create and manifest everything you desire into form.
To see a 22 for example would be the equivalent of 2+2=4, which in itself has multiple meanings. It also means the power of 2 is amplified (2×2). Being that you should have faith in yourself because things will get better, and you will turn your dreams into reality. A complex message, but only given meaning by humans, and actually, when you dig deeper, to get the real meaning would be to pay attention to every detail in your life.
The first step after recognising these numbers as significant or with meaning is to try and understand a bit more about the deeper meaning behind them in relation to your current situation. Remember, angels can use their voice to talk to us, and sometimes when they are present may in fact brush over us like a soft life feather which can mean they want you to know they are there with you. Opening your heart to love and forgiveness and to enable them to talk to you more clearly may just allow you to hear them. Do you feel sad or lonely when you have that feeling of static electric, or hair standing on edge? Do you want to have a clearer picture of your future? Be sure to engage with them by being receptive and open minded, you have nothing to be afraid of when you want to try and listen to your angelic overseers.
If you feel like you are more connected to God and that angelic beings might be trying to talk to you, through numbers or otherwise, then perhaps consider thanking them for their efforts to assure and guide you. You could consider meditating on a prayer, or further giving glory and thanks to God. You could develop a new skill or build something that you have been working on.

Welcome to Psychedelic Wizard. This is a welcoming environment where you can openly criticise and reflect without fear of persecution.
I’ve gained followers, and I’ve lost followers, which can be disheartening. It makes me wonder if I did something wrong, or if I over did my posting. I don’t intend to bombard you, rather, to post a sufficient amount of content that I like to post and which I enjoy making, and which can be reached by enough people to potentially create a bigger following. So, losing followers although sad is understandable, if the values are not in alignment anymore. What I mean by that is the people unfollowing are not feeling the site energy anymore or perhaps are fed up and not interested. I always appreciate on-going support and want you to know that. I am grateful for the audience on WordPress. Some of you have been liking, commenting and more for many years. I just hope that I have an audience in the future.
I do get disheartened when I see other blogs with thousands of followers, who probably got that in a lot less time than I even got to 500. I have tried to post consistent content for a few years now, but somehow my post counter doesn’t even seem to be close to what it should be. There are occasional glitches in WordPress sites, such as some appearing ‘unsafe’ or ‘virus ridden’ even though they are not. I suspect the content on the sites are a factor, and have been classified as dangerous because of that. I have struggled to access certain blogs from time to time because of this issue.
But it brings me happiness to see long-term bloggers who are still contributing and putting effort into their amazing blogs. I love to read them and explore new sites and topics. It always amazes me how little they expect in return. I won’t name anybody but I am so happy to be following a few blogs which have been motivational and inspirational for many years that I have been reading. You may know who you are!
POEM called Don’t Be Afraid. It is about the uncertainty and doubt that can create issues in our lives. Ultimately, having the courage to move forward, to triumph over the unknown. My other post Into The Tunnelsis also about that bravery, in different circumstances

Having courage does not mean that we are unafraid. Having courage and showing courage mean we face our fears. We are able to say, ‘I have fallen, but I will get up.’

Blessed are they that mourn, they they shall be comforted. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are they which are hungry and thirsty for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. It is written again, thou shall not tempt the Lord Thy God.
The day has arrived. Jesus Christ walks among us once again. After the power of God illuminated his tomb, and shone a light on his soul, he was risen. No longer bound by earthly limitations, but free in his spirit body once again.

Welcome to Psychedelic Wizards blog and todays post about the art of Feng Shui. If you like what you read then please like, comment and follow the site for more interesting posts on a variety of topics.
The most ancient of practices that is Feng Shui – meaning wind-water – is the Chinese philosophy detailing how to create balance and harmony between the elements. This practice is used within the home, because it is a belief system that specific placement of objects in a space will greatly affect the energy and the flow and the harmony of our surroundings.
At the core, it is decorating to maximise the energy of a space, to make it more positive and minimise or eradicate negative energy build up. So what are the potential effects, or benefits of such a practice? As mentioned, the idea is to harmonise the energy so that a space is more positive, surely a huge benefit to anybody! Having a lighter energy home, feeling less cluttered and more vibrant would also make you feel mentally better, uplifting your mood, improving your mindset, helping you to achieve those goals, and possibly to sleep better too.
In Feng Shui there are the main ‘principles’. That of the ‘Commanding Position’, ‘the Bagua‘, and the ‘Five Elements‘. Using these principles together is the aim to create harmony.
Lets start with the Commanding Position. This is going to be the best way to place furniture within a room. Use this and apply it to all the main objects in a space, like the sofas in your living room, or the tv and stand, or the shelving units. Use it in bedrooms, by moving the bed to the further point from the doorway. Move your office at home around, or your desk, adjust the placement to furthest from the door, yet still facing the door. Being in the furthest point, yet facing it, is commanding a room.
Then you have the Bagua. This is an energy map identifying the elements you should place within the room to facilitate the flow of positive energy. Different areas are dealt with, like work and home and personal goals.
As you can see different colours and elements relate to different areas. Health and family for example, are green and blues, with wood as the element. If you don’t want to use all of the above, simply use a select few, or one or two. Trying something shouldn’t be a burden. When setting out the room look at the map and then focus on one room at a time and make sure you are clear what you want to bring to the room. If you wanted your bedroom with a focus on relationships you could use reds, white and pinks. Beds need to face the doorway, but not in direct line with it. Symmetry is important, so using flat and square shaped objects can help, along with flat objects.
Finally we have the Five Elements. They are: fire, water, wood, metal and earth. Feng Shui seeks to balance these elements in your home.
Each element is associated with different colours, seasons and shapes as seen in the picture above. Fire – red and triangular. Water – black and curved shapes. Wood – green/blue and rectangular columned shapes. Metal – white and circular/sphere shapes. Earth – brown/orange/yellow and flat and square objects.
If you want to add each element to a room you can start by using the colour or the shapes. You could light a white candle for example. Using more plants will help too. Being able to successfully place objects is key, and you need space to work with, so make sure to remove anything not needed and get rid of clutter and clear the doors. Big plants at the entrance can help. The entrance hallway is important to, or any hallway, try and keep it clear and bright. Plants are positive energy and connecting to the earth, so bring some big plants, or small ones into your home and keep everything fresh. They have the added benefit of literally purifying the air.
You have now learned a little about Feng Shui. Thanks for reading, how will you better use your space?
Angels are around us all the time, listening to our thoughts, guiding us, being with us in need and providing comfort and guidance. We can’t see them though, or can we?
There are accounts in the bible of angelic encounters, and modern day encounters too. But what is an encounter? Well, it’s not going to be easy to tell all the time, unless you see one in the physical plane which is rare, but not impossible. An angel may be an assuring voice, a gentle touch on the arm, the sensation of being warm even on your own. Supposedly they can take on human form to help you. Other times they may appear with angelic wings to reassure you or to bolster your faith.
They are the beings of heaven, interdimensional messengers between us and the creator. They have boundless love and never give up on you. It is there intention to help human beings. Since angels radiate light, they come from the light of heaven, another realm of existence, it is hard for them to be in light form we can see.
But they do appear as lights, variety we may not even give a thought to: A coloured light coming across you vision, glowing orbs (not sure on this), flashed of light, streams of bright white light like the sun, burst of small clouds of light. You might see the outline of something that looks like light for a brief moment. The angel can be mist, or like mist, which is white gossomer like substance. It could be significant, it might not be. You judge your own experiences, and if any message’s are being conveyed you should try and ground yourself. A good thing to check is whether your hairs on your arms stand on edge, if they do it means the air is charged, which may well be a sign of an angel being present.
Angels coming to us with wings, or in the form we anticipate, which may or may not be their true form, can be unsettling. Angels in the bible instructed that humans should not be afraid when they encounter an angel with wings. This is a celestial being with great strength and power and an extremely important role in heaven and earth. Do not be afraid though, they are benevolent and have qualities of goodness and purity. Just a friendly reminder, they are kind to good people, and I cannot imagine them not intervening if you attempt to physically hurt someone else who you should not hurt. Angels are intelligent beings, and understand what is good and bad. Bad people have demons, but we don’t talk about them in this post.
In a 2002 study which interviewed 350, most of them in the UK who had experiences of angels, describe several types of experiences. They talk about visions, conveying warnings, senses of being touched, pushed or lifted to avert danger, pleasant fragrances.
There is guardian angels, meant to look over us personally out whole lives. What people might not realise is that some people have more than one, some have two. I believe the people with more than one are particularly special, or maybe they will need the extra support in life. God sees and knows all and has factored this into the whole equation. That doesn’t mean you are restricted to the help of your guardian angel. As I mentioned at the start, they are everywhere and several angels may help you in one day. Angels do not have to get permission from you to help, just accept it. Even non-believers have encountered these beings. If you recall my post on alchemy you will see that hundreds of years ago people were not only seeing but also communicating with angels. Take that with caution, and never let anything you don’t trust to trick you. Angels answer to God and Him only, and has been warned before, if an angel accepts praise or worship you are not in their presence.
Angels can show us love even if we cannot see them. They may hug us, they may wrap their wings around us, surrounding our bodies in angelic protective energy, bathing us in warm heavenly light and love. When this happens, it might be because you are in a worrisome time, or are sad, or maybe you are grieving and their presence is thought to help.
I had an uplifting experience at my old apartment. I was grieving around that time, but I was not crying. I simply lay in bed and suddenly I could see the misty outline of an angel, a human like body with wings. I was falling asleep so never gave it much thought. It made me feel warm as the wings wrapped around me, and I woke up refreshed. I don’t know if I encountered an angel but it was really pleasant to know someone was there for me.
I have talked about essential oils a few times on my site. They are excellent tools for boosting wellbeing, mindfulness, physical illness and spiritual connection. Some oils also help to better connect with the angels.
Frankincense is by far the most spiritually ‘high’ vibration in oils. It was considered in biblical times to be more valuable than gold. It helps calm and raise your vibrations so you can connect with angels. The higher vibration the easier for you to see them. Rose oil is incredibly powerful too, allowing you to open your heart and be more connected with love and the angelic realm. Lavender can help calm stress and anxiety and allow you to prepare and see angels without worrying. Quiet mind is key to communication. So too is raising the vibration.
So if you think angels are surrounding you then good, because that is better than the polar opposite. There can be changes in the air in that it becomes charged, your hair is on edge, maybe you feel an electricity around you or your have a strong uplift in energy. Do you believe in angels? Have you ever had an experience seeing them? Comment below!
Thanks for reading this post, it was focused on angels since we are in the Easter time, the Son of Gods birthday approaches. I will follow this post up at some point and discuss some of the more philosophical possibilities of angelic existence.
If there was ever a stranger place on earth or in heaven than the human mind, let it be known.
Humans for centuries have strived for development of individuals and society as a collective. Building vast empires and civilisations which flourish for many decades, even centuries. But, they all come crashing down. The most excellent of cultures, like Egypt, like the Aztecs, are washed away… seemingly to be found thousands of years later as relics and remnants of a history long gone. What of the tales of Alexandria, or the library that burned down? What of the ancient knowledge that these civilisations possessed. Where has all that information gone?
You won’t be surprised to know, that the majority of it will be suppressed, locked away in decaying ancient vaults, never to see daylight again. Select people on the other hand, are aware of what information is contained within, and with such, have literally moved human consciousness and evolution to suit their own agenda. Do you know the real reason Pharaohs had all the power whilst the majority slaved away to build the pyramids. Information and knowledge that would change mankind instantly is otherwise held or destroyed… why? What could it be that they do not want us to know about? Aliens and secret space races visiting earth, developing nations for thousands of years, to then destroy them when they no longer suit their masters needs.
That is all external. What counts is what is on the inside. What do you know about yourself? Do you like to read about ancient stargates? Perhaps you are interested in alien human genetic modification and hybridizations programs. What about the idea that an evil occult group runs and owns all the elite royal families and presidencies and celebrities in the world? Does any of it sounds plausible?
You can see literally what is inside, that is, ‘inside the ear’ from the above diagram. You know you have a heart and brain and you might not give thought to autonomous processes or even to your own feelings and emotions. If you ever feel ‘hurt’ when someone upsets you, ask yourself, why. Where does that hurt come from, where does the pain and trauma form or manifest. Is it mere fragments of an illusion? The illusion being your own existence, on the path to reunite as the source of all things. You created this life, literally shaping the world around you, and no… it is not magic.
The ear diagram shows us that there is 3 parts, although not labelled. There is the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear. When you get to the inner ear, you are in the labyrinth. Did you see that movie Pan’s Labyrinth ? I’ll come onto that in a moment. The point is, that you can see the diagram of the inside of the ear. You know from research and scans, that we have been told that inside the body is the heart and the liver and the kidneys among others. You were told that information, you never sought to understand that, you just assumed you ‘functioned’ since you were born. Unless you were unwell and needed to have scans or invasive surgery in which case, you trust that the ‘doctors’ went ‘inside’ to resolve the issues. You never needed to learn this about yourself and all knowledge came from an external source, whether it be teachers, doctors or whatever.
Contrast that with the ancient civilisations. You might be thinking, ‘looking at the alien picture I already know what he is going to suggest.’ Well, no you don’t. The alien picture above is a symbol in this post. It is a symbol of something being alien, as opposed to an intelligent life form. Carl Jung In 1958 concluded that it was more desirable for humans to believe UFO’s exist than to believe they don’t exist. He also concluded that UFO’s were example of synchronicity, where external events mirror internal psychic states.
“As we know from ancient Egyptian history, they are manifestations of psychic changes which always appear at the end of one Platonic month and at the beginning of another. Apparently they are changes in the constellation of psychic dominants, of the archetypes, or ‘gods’ as they used to be called, which bring about, or accompany, long-lasting transformations of the collective psyche.”
Collective psyche is the idea the the human race shares an unconscious collective unconsciousness, which affects the world. Just as we project our emotions, so too do we project our psyche without even realising it. Alchemists used to do the same some centuries ago.
We can see any image we want, and gather information we seek. We do not however imagine that aliens or UFO’s would be the result of psychic changes. People claim that aliens built the pyramids. They also claim millions have been abducted. Manifestations though are significant in understanding what is ‘within’ ourselves. “an event, action, or object that clearly shows or embodies something abstract or theoretical.” Is it possible collectively, the human race has already manifested all it needs to know, or will it continue to bring in new ideas? But just as history teaches us, civilisations get too good, they collapse and they end. Species are wiped from the planet, like the dinosaurs, wiped from the earth by an asteroid, or the great flood, in which Noah had to rescue the animals who otherwise would have been killed alongside the Nephilim.
Being able to guide your own light and life is amazing. Having the strength to build yourself up and make yourself and the world a better place is a fantastic start. But, what do you really know? Do you have clear knowledge of your own body, of your own psyche? Did you ever question anything taken undoubtedly to be true? Sometimes the most engrained of norms in society turn out to be false, to be lies. It is time to start uncovering how you feel, to set aside stereotypes and ideas that no longer belong to you. We can see people already expressing these changes throughout the globe. What do you want to be?
Knowledge, as Indiana Jones says in the Kingdom of the crystal skull, was the treasure or secret or the alien visitors. You see, the bad Soviet lady gets burned to death by the aliens for wanting too much of it. Maybe this film has more important messages for humanity, such as, stop, take a literal look inside and around you and love and enjoy what you have. If ancient Egypt fell apart, for whatever reason, did it reflect their level of understanding of life and the universe? Is stargate worth exploring, ancient stargates, purported to allow humans to literally teleport around the globe. Has the positioning of the pyramids, aligned with Orions belt, got significance?
Coming briefly onto Pans labyrinth, let’s look at the meaning of the words. Pan is firstly a God:
“In ancient Greek religion and mythology, Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is also recognized as the god of fields, groves, wooded glens and often affiliated with sex; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and the season of spring. The word panic ultimately derives from the god’s name.”
pasted from wikipedia
Pan is the short of Pansexual, meaning someone who does not see gender when it comes to sex, to put it simply. Pan means all inclusive. It is a popular word used throughout the globe.
Labyrinth, which also means maze:
“In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth was an elaborate, confusing structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, the monster eventually killed by the hero Theseus. Daedalus had so cunningly made the Labyrinth that he could barely escape it after he built it.”
In the movie, Pans labyrinth, a faun is found within the labyrinth, literally befriending the girl throughout the movie. We can see from the above that inside the labyrinth is a minotaur, it is a monster, a bad monster. The interesting part is calling it Pans labyrinth. Pan is the God, right? Actually, the faun, is Pan. It is quite literally deceiving the little girl into this dangerous place.
The girl called… rather dubiously, Ofelia. This name… yet again derived from Greek, meaning ‘Help.’ Why call a little girl befriending a monster, stuck with uncaring parents, ‘help’? Minotaurs were also fed children, or small humans. What do you know still? Does the knowledge make you sick or are you interested to know more, so to avoid such ugly movies? Pan, of sexual deviance. Yet, a girl lured into the labyrinth to be ‘Queen’ of the ‘underworld’ ultimately paying the price through death. Pan, the so called ‘help’ of Ofelia, or a mere liar who uses Ofelia, seeking ‘help’ to open the gates to the underworld… hell. Pan is nothing more than Satan. Ofelia is crying out for emotional and physical love, yet she gets Pan, a deviant. She is roped into a deal with Pan, and she is in need of supernatural ‘help’ at that point. I dare not venture into Narnia, which the first creature the little girl sees is a faun… Pan.
Do you know what you think you know? Has your inner most thoughts been changed at some point, or are you still waiting for someone to tell you the truth?
Wizard wants to talk to you all about forgiveness. It is evident that through time and space that beings have had to forgive at some point in their lives. It is symbolic, it is truth, it is in all of us. Whatever you see forgiveness as, know that you are capable of it.
Before going any further, you may want to check out ‘emotions of colour‘ which touches on the connection between how colour affects us and how it can change us. It also touches on forgiveness. The poem Transcend is also good for looking at what forgiveness is.
Healing can be painful. It is a process and takes time which is what a lot of people don’t realise. You can’t expect to heal after a day of meditation, or after walking a hundred miles in the hope that you will suddenly rid yourself of any burdens such as guilt, shame or lingering anger at how you have been wronged. People who have been hurt, really hurt, which has caused them anxiety and depression, misery and other emotions, are the ones I am aiming this at. That is not to exclude those wronged in the supermarket checkouts, or those shouted at because they crossed the road at the wrong time. No, it is aimed to those who have deep emotional wounds which are likely to have cause them significant distress because if they can come to heal through time and to eventually forgive, then they will benefit the most, since it will be such a big part of development for them
Healing is the path to forgiveness. Without awareness of the issues you will find it hard to begin any journey to healing. Most people are aware of the issues which is great for starting to the path to forgive the wrongs they have suffered. Healing of the heart is where a lot of this will take place, since the heart is the center for love and for the connection to the universe. My post on healing the heart touches upon awareness. You have to be aware of the issues to change. Change will come from acceptance. Once you accept the issues and the pain you are in or was in, you will be on the path changing who you are.
To forgive takes more than to heal though, since we are talking about not only emotional healing, but mental, physical and spiritual healing. God knows what has happened to you. You were bestowed with free will when you were born, the will to change, the will to forgive. He sees everything, so no matter how alone you were or how alone you feel now, perhaps you are really struggling, know that He is there and waiting for you.
“I see everything they do. They cannot hide from me the things they do; their sin is not hidden from my eyes.”
Rest assured that the above is as true as it gets. Although it can be frustrating and angering to accept that God sat by on the sidelines whilst you were seriously wronged, be assured, that you are independent and to interfere with humans in a supernatural way would impact free will. Those who wronged you have free will and He saw how they misused that to inflict suffering upon you and others.
Healing of the mind can be to work through ruminations. Ruminating is the act of focusing on something or to think deeply of something.
“Rumination is the focused attention on the symptoms of one’s distress, and on its possible causes and consequences, as opposed to its solutions”
Response styles theory – Nolen-Hoeksema
From the above, it is understandable to see how difficult is it to even start the road to recovery or healing when you may be ruminating about the distress you have suffered. That is not to say that thinking about the issues is bad. Thinking through the issues and incidents can help to bring you to the level of awareness and acceptance. Acceptance leads to change remember. But, you also have to work with your body and mind to heal. Maybe you could try meditation or exercise? Both are great at helping reduce feelings of depression and anxiety. You could change your diet perhaps? The point is change.
Can you better see the path that is available to you? Imagine you are now at the change phase. You are changing those daily rituals or habits. You are adding in extra activities to heal the body and mind. You might be socialising more… or less. The paradox can be that you don’t have to do anything to change. What do I mean by that? I mean that if you lived a pretty busy life full of extra curricular activities, exercise and socialising then change for you might be more quiet time sat at home reading a book. Yes change occured but you didn’t focus on the developmental journey to heal, yet, you did. Can be confusing to understand. Know that change is brought about by you. I think a lot of people are expecting help from an external source. Granted the resources are there, but a lot of people aren’t getting the help they need which means they have to do it themselves. Having a supportive network will only benefit those who need it as part of their change and healing.
Over time and with dedication, you will change and you will start to feel that part of your life that you have been waiting for. Healing. Healing can occur earlier such as when changing. But, usually it occurs during and slightly after. After change is when your mind and body start to heal. Healing can be the most painful phase, because it is the phase of ‘letting go’ and being prepared to ‘forgive’ another. Forgiveness is not dependent on social norms, it is not dependent on others thoughts toward you. In fact, nobody needs to hear you forgive if you prefer to keep it to yourself. Just as prayer can be solitary, so too forgiveness.
I wrote about how healing can occur in the heart. The heart is where love is at. If your emotional experience has been hurt of the heart, or hurt through love, then this is where you feel that healing. Utilising the crystal stones as I mentioned, particularly rose, may assist this part. The healing process can be months, or years. Usually the change occurs over the same amount of time. Dependent on what the original wrongs against you were, it is not expected that you will bounce back immediately to the forgiveness stage. You will need to be ready for the moment, and need to do it with compassion and conviction. There is nothing worse than seeing someone go from awareness to healing to fail at forgiveness, because they didn’t believe it what they were doing. Have faith in yourself, take the time and don’t rush. You may be able to live a perfectly content life merely in the phases of healing and change, because in those phases you are focused on your inner light.
To forgive someone who has not repented can be extremely hard. I wrote about this and how there might not be any reason to forgive if there has been no repentance. I think I said something like ‘you cannot be expected to forgive someone who hasn’t repented.’ I also said that those people who are capable of this were incredible beings and I stand by that. The article below talks about the process of forgiving someone who isn’t sorry. The writer talks about how forgiveness can be done alone, how it might affect you and why you should forgive those who won’t repent. I use repent not because of its association with religion but its association with forgiveness
You have come this far so thank you for reading. It wouldn’t be the end if I didn’t talk about the ‘what happens next’ part?
Once upon a time
you were hurt
you were scared
maybe you were just about ready to cry
Now, a day more or a day less, you are here
You see the world with beauty, not anger
The sun and the skies, the rain coming from your eyes
I see the way and I want to embrace
change coming from the heart
like God, who brought me from the dark
to the light
If you reach the stage of forgiveness you have come far and you have done well. Goodness may seep from your heart and mind, your soul may be so strong that even the most evil of demons cower at your mere presence. Why? You have now saved yourself. You have taken the power of creation and existence and bestowed it upon yourself. You stepped to the side to let God have a say, and when you realised you had free will, you took a step back again, and decided that you had to make the choice, you had to change, you had to come to the point of forgiveness yourself. Despite what evil exists in the world, or what negativity tries to throw at you, or the lies and illusions of a world run by bad people, you did it.
Wizard doesn’t profess to be an expert on magic, but white magic is in abundance where forgiveness is present. To be good is to be white magic. You are making paths in space and time that cannot be undone. ‘For what is done cannot be undone.’ No matter how hard the journey or how isolating and confusing, you did it. You came through awareness to forgiveness and ultimately saved yourself. You have healed yourself. The emotional wounds which once had significance are evapourated. They no longer exist in you. You will focus on the adventures of the days to come, and of the love and beauty surrounding your heart. You will be closer to the connection of the universe than ever before. It is a wonderful experience. Light will radiate around you and no darkness shall befall you, for God will have seen your empathy and compassion and will command his angels regarding you.
