Living Free and Light!

Liberation, lightness of being, a relaxed and easy life… is not just a dream but a reality, if we choose.

Most of us however have some or the other baggage to deal with…even those who believe themselves to be spiritually liberated (experiencing a temporary spiritual high in meditation, even if it lasts all your life does not mean true liberation). True liberation involves healing of all past negative attachments so that even when you are back to the mundane world you are totally free. Liberation does not mean having no will to continue living in positive energy. Those who seek to escape from rebirth  altogether are infact deluding themselves. The very fact that they wish to escape the cycles of life, death and rebirth implies that they have pain and suffering that is unhealed and by avoiding facing these negativity, we are not going to truly be free. To be free we have to first face our inner truth and to heal our reality.

Reincarnation:
Our physical reality is created by our inner spirit. Thus the spirit has the power to choose where and how to reincarnate, taking a new form of energy. This can be a joyful experience if reincarnation is focused on experiencing a natural, healthy and balanced way of life. However most of the times souls reincarnate with negative energetic or karmic baggage or unfinished business.

Why Do we Reincarnate with Past Karmic Baggage?
When our transactions in life are not sorted out – i.e. either we or another feels unbalanced in our relationships or associations, this leads to negative energy or baggage that accumulates in one or more people involved in the transaction.

If not cleared off in the present life, it will still be recorded in the akasha or spiritual library where all memories and feelings are stored. Our soul is connected to this ethereal ocean of consciousness and chooses our future lives based on the lessons to be learnt from the higher self (ethereal) to lower self (physical). These lessons will then be carried on by the individual soul to the next life and a new drama will play out helping the learning be more intense. Past Life Therapy helps us discover the lessons we need to learn and the patterns we need to heal.

The karmic baggage thus carried within us multiplies with every cycle. So if you owe rs 100 to one person in this life and the person feels betrayed as you could not repay it, this along with a lot of interest you must pay in your next life.

This does not just apply to financial transactions. Emotional associations are equally full of guilt and sorrow if they are hazy, unclear and imbalanced. One or more person may feel drained out, cheated or used in relationships and this automatically means that the person who has caused this emotional drain will carry guilt in their subconscious (even though they may not always be aware of the guilt). Not having a clear cut contract in your romantic life leads to pain and a feeling of betrayal for one or more involved in the relationship. This is because the base of the relationship – the root chakra – which means stability and committment is dysfunctional and there are constant insecurities (conscious or subconscious – known or unknown to the people involved).

I must stress upon this part even though it may fluster some of my friends. Not just laymen but also some people who are followers of new age spirituality are often not properly grounded in this aspect of relationships, and thereby have been observed as being very airy, impractical and unclear in the way they transact with others financially and in romance. For example relationships with multiple partners or even one partner without any proper contract whether marital or otherwise can sound like a fun thing but will sooner or later hurt. A lot of commitment phobic men and women seem to be getting into one or the other brand of spirituality that is based on beliefs that ‘seriousness’ of any kind or any ‘strings attached’ are unnecessary or even deplorable in romantic or sexual encounters. While they may ‘fly’ for a while in their ‘beyond’ state, they forget that even the birds, angels, god and goddess come down to earth in this eternal cycle of manifestation and transformation and have to follow ethics and principles even in their higher realms. Infact you may have heard that many of such spiritual gurus who prescribe ‘unserious’, ‘playful’ attitudes and behaviors in love and sex, at the expense of grounding, foundation and clarity have themselves died of AIDS or in other tragic ways. Their example can tell us a lot about the dangers of ungrounded spirituality and the fact that karma always catches up even if you ignore your karmic responsibilities. Ignorance (including spiritual drunkenness) is not bliss.

Another thing we take for granted is our family life. In your family not having proper legal will for inheritance, unequal behavior towards one or the other child, abuse of any kind of spouse, parent, child, taking any person for granted, misunderstandings, all can create negative baggage that gets passed from generation to generation, requiring Trans-generational Healing as well.

And of course financial debts that are not cleared in time and with proper interest can lead to a lot of trauma in one or more person’s aura and this energy gets imprinted onto ether which is akasha or the storehouse of all information in the universe.

Money, emotions, feelings, work… all is energy and is none of this is to be taken lightly or irreverently. Mutual respect and balance in any transaction we make on earth or any other planet is totally necessary. We must feel deserving of this respect and balance and ask and give it fully.

Karmic debts unless and until balanced with interest will accumulate on and on giving the persons who caused the negativity more and more suffering until he or she settles everything back to balance. To do this the person who suffers often takes on the spiritual path at one point of time, with the help of a spiritual master or with his or her own enlightenment to
gain clarity on the negative pattern, its cause and its right solution and thereby heals the situation and energies so as to bring things back to balance through the process of Karmic Disentanglement.

The Price to Pay:
There is always a price to pay if you wish to clear off your negative baggage. This can be expensive but is totally liberating. Sometimes people think they can just burn a little candle, perform a small yagna, wear a tiny ring, say a prayer and liberate themselves of all possible karmic debts. This is often illusory. The amount of energy (money, effort, etc) that you may have to spend will be directly proportional to the amount of negative baggage that you have to clear off. If one ritual does not give practical results be assured that it has to some extent cleared off your etheric negativity or karma and perhaps you need several more to get a full relief. Always know that the spiritual work of healing that you perform will always work at some level and if at first you don’t succeed it just means you need to put in more energy and try again as you may have multiple blocks. Do not give up or stop the work. Even if a person is dying and
accepting spiritual healing, even when he dies as the body did not get the time to show the effect of this healing, his spirit carries the effect of healing and the effect of this positive energy reflects in his otherworld and future lives. If you do not give any spiritual healing to the ailing person and treat him only cosmetically on the physical level, the ethereal imprint or soul of the person will still carry the negativity to deal with in future lives. A wise person will always go for maximum spiritual healing.

Freedom from Negative Karmic Cycles:
This can be attained by first clearing off all our past burdens, by healing ourselves at every level holistically and simultaneously from now on, through spiritual, psychological, emotional and financial releasing. Simultaneously from NOW on we should try keeping all our transactions, financial and emotional, absolutely clear, practically sound and with least potential to hurt any of the parties involved.

One way to do this is through following those legal and practical rules that make for a sound understanding between all our partners, romantic financial or otherwise and thus totally free all concerned of duality or subconscious fears. Another things is to remember that laws in the physical world are framed by humans but have been biased in the past (eg. laws that ignore rights of homosexuals or transsexuals are still existent in many countries). Thus more important than blindly following laws and rules of your state is to seek the answer to this question

- Is what I am doing good for myself and all others?
- Does it harm none?
Often legal rules need to be changed if they are not good for all concerned and this change takes place as a result of public awareness that helps the states to revise their books of law.

Living in Freedom:
Always live each moment as if it may be the last. In every moment we must have absolute bliss and freedom (free will) and least amount of karmic negativity to be carried forward. Clear off all your debts. Forgive and ask for forgiveness. Heal yourself and send loving energy to others. This means the next life or next form we take will be entirely our choice and not a repetition of past mistakes and burdens. Even when alive the next moment will be free of karmic blockages or negativity so that our power to manifest our desires or work our Magick becomes and remains strong and infinite.

What is Wicca:

Wicca is a new wave of Magick spreading all over the world as a modern religion that helps you connect and project your inner powers for the benefit of yourself and the universe.

Wicca is different from ordinary witchcraft and must not be used as
another term for any witch.

Sure Wiccans consider themselves to be at the basic level…witches or
wizards or magickal people, but there are a lot of witches out there
who practice some kinds of magick or witchcraft but who do not qualify
as Wiccans.

To be a Wiccan is to be part of the religion called Wicca. Wicca is a
modern religion inspired by ancient nature based beliefs and practices
that include magick. It has developed in the 21st century itself.

Read More on Wicca on:
http://www.globalwicca.com/wicca.htm

WITCHCRAFT AND WICCA:

A witch can be any kind of magickal practitioner such as a Reiki witch, a Feng Shui witch, a Candle magic witch, a Shaman witch and so on. Any human with magickal powers is arguably a witch and I must declare that we ALL HAVE magickal powers…its just that not all of USE it. With the rise in global consciousness more and more of us are realizing that we create our reality and this is leading to the popularity of Wicca as a modern religious belief system.

Wicca is a totally specific religious system.

History of Wicca:

Religion is shared or organized spirituality.
The Wiccan religion began as a group based practice of spirituality
when Gerald Gardner wrote rituals and initiated witches into what is
known as Gardenerian Wiccan Tradition. Similarly other traditions came
up over the world to initiate more individuals into various forms of
Wicca. Each Wiccan tradition is based on their own unique ways of
practicing the Wiccan faith.

About the Burning Times:

About the notorious practice of witch persecutions and the Burning Times, I do not think Wiccans were burnt at all (the religion of Wicca is
more modern in timeline while the burning time was medieval. The
classical period of witchhunts in Europe falls into the Early Modern
period or about 1480 to 1700 while Wiccan religion is coming up in the 21st century itself). Alleged witches are said to have been burnt
….though it may have included random people who were believed by the inquisitors to have used magickal powers were punished. Wicca is popular at a fabulous period of human evolution, where we are all accepting that we have free will and can affect our future with harm to none and for the best interest of all concerned. There is no longer a fear of our own inner
self. We have begun to love and accept the witch we all are.

Solitary Wicca?

You can be a Solitary Witch…but can you be a Solitary Wiccan? There is confusion or doubt about whether you can still be called a
Wiccan if you are not a member of any tradition. In the absence of awareness or access to a Wiccan tradition that resonates with them, some people do fashion themselves as ‘Solitary Wiccans’ inspired by the writings of authors such as Scott Cunningham and may not be initiates of any tradition though they pick up knowledge from here and there and this
is what was happening so far in India.

Being a part of a coherent tradition helps you gain clarity and focus on  as your spiritual path and the Global Wicca Tradition headquartered in Mumbai helps you in this with free membership to anyone who wishes to follow the Wiccan faith as well as official initiations for Qualified Wiccan healers on offer.

Wiccan Traditions:

Wiccan Traditions can have one of more temples of Wicca and the Global
Wicca Tradition has started a few temples such as the Online Temple which is free for public (for Online Rituals), Earth Healing Temple (for rituals held in physical location) and a Children’s Temple of Wicca too has just begun. Members who choose to study and learn Wicca need to pass from one to three degrees of Wicca and can choose to be initiated as a priest or priestess of the Tradition (addressed as Clergy) enabling them to take up Wicca as a career offering ritual services to the public with support and backing of our tradition.

The Global Wicca Tradition (www.globalwicca.com) is newly launched and is the first of its kind to originate in India. We believe in the scientific basis and practical applications of Magick for the benefit of nature (humans seen as part of nature). Global Wicca incorporates deities, gods, goddesses from all over the Globe from several cultures and religious beliefs into their rituals…. in a Wiccan way, making it suitable for people regardless of religious backgrounds and belief systems. You can study the Global Wicca path online as well as offline – refer to the syllabus given on the website.

The Correllian Tradition headquartered in USA has its own unique philosophy and is a leading organization growing rapidly. I support them as their Clergy member. More on www.correllian.com. Correllian Wicca can be studied through Witchschool International and I am presently in-charge of all their students and mentors in India and also available as mentor on www.witchschool.com

Remember if you are a student of Wicca you may want to study under at least one tradition or another else you may not get a clear understanding and may remain a dabbler as most solitary ‘Wiccans’ remain.

To be initiated into one tradition you may be required to study under their system and being a student of one may not automatically make you eligible to join the rituals, practices and to take up initiation of and into another Wiccan Tradition.

You will find that each tradition is different in ideas, philosophy, leadership, structure, ritual systems and beliefs and you may be a part of one or more tradition if they so allow. In the case that you are associated with more than one tradition, you will have to switch between two differing practices of Wicca as you go from one tradition’s events to another.

Most Wiccan traditions do however share some common beliefs and practices.

Basic Wiccan Beliefs:

  • Belief in magick, i.e. we all create our reality and can choose our future consciously.
  • Belief in the five elements of nature: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Spirit as the five building blocks of creation aid in magick
  • Belief in Deity being both Gods and Goddesses as well as a universal deity that is all encompassing
  • Belief in Karma, or Law of Three (All energy you send comes back to you multiple times of three till you learn the lesson). The core code of conduct in Wicca is a simple and rational one: “Do as You Will as Long as You Harm None” – referred to as The Wiccan Rede that protects you from doing harm to others and yourself. (Just following the Wiccan Rede does not make you Wiccan as Wicca includes several philosophies and practices that need to be learned)

Wiccan Practices:
The practice of Wicca includes Rituals (ceremonic rites) celebrating
the wheel of nature (Seasonal Sabbats and Esbats), and spells
incorporated within Wiccan Ritual format for various positive purposes
such as abundance, healing, removing negativity and so on. Here
different traditions have their own Ritual and you may follow your
tradition’s format.

Wiccan Healing as a Professional Service:

Wicca is not just a method or technique. It is a religious belief
system. To be a Wiccan is just like being a Hindu, or Christian and so on…it is a religion. (Media, to whom being a Wiccan comes across as a unique thing, sometimes mentions me as simply as ‘Swati Prakash – a Wiccan’ when truly I am a Wiccan Healer, a leader, an expert)

As a qualified Wiccan Healer, one can surely use the energy and skills for the benefit of the rest of nature.

You can ask our tradition’s Clergy members to perform ritual services for you (for individuals and for groups). These can be performed by a single clergy member or a group of clergy for greater energy.

our tradition is on the following link:

Psychic Power:
Every thought, emotion, desire or action is Karma. Each of these has a
vibration of its own. Every vibration has an effect, every action has a reaction.

We may not realize it but every thought, dream or feeling that we project knowingly or unknowingly has an effect in the world and creates our future. This means we all carry a lot of psychic power within us.
Psychic power comes with a responsibility too. We are all
interconnected in the matrix of life and whatever we project comes
back us sooner or later to teach us the lesson of love and compassion.

Psychic Awareness:
Not everyone who has psychic power has been aware of their power. Many times we have sent anger, envy, hate towards others without even realizing that it is having a potential to harm others and us (if something could harms another it harms us as well).

We may have said – “Go to hell” or “get Lost” for example in a fit of anger and it is a negative energy that returns to the sender. When you were talking negatively to someone or yourself about life, the world, any happenings, relationships, etc…it was also creating negative energy for the listener and yourself. We all are to constantly work on modifying such behaviors and adopting a more affirmative life.
Psychic Attack:

There are also people who have been aware of their psychic power and know how to send highly focused vibrations. They may not have been doing this in a responsible way and may harm others intentionally thereby harming themselves too (if not sooner than later and with interest – the harm sent comes back multiple times to the sender until they learn the lesson).

This is what happens in a psychic attack. Some people who suffered from  lack of full knowledge and were ignorant of the importance of magickal ethics were low on the responsibility part and used their third-eye or psychic power wrongly.

Psychic Responsibility:
We all are responsible to think pleasant thoughts and feel positive
emotions, to desire good things and to indulge in ethical behavior and
actions – towards ourselves and others. This is psychic responsibility
and people who had sent psychic attacks or negative vibrations to
themselves or others knowingly or unknowingly may have been less spiritually aware of the law of karma and about psychic responsibility due to lack of inner wisdom and absence of proper magickal and spiritual training and guidance.

Thankfully cutting edge magickal training and spiritual guidance is now available and is being accessed by many so we are becoming both psychically and spiritually aware of our psychic responsibility and ethics and people are learning how to be more positive and loving.

The Wiccan Rede:
“Harm None Do as You Will” is a beautiful code of ethics that is
followed by many today as Wicca gains prominence as a religion and a
coherent spiritual system for enlightened masters. (More on www.globalwicca.com)


How to Know if you are under a Psychic Attack
:

  • You may have felt irritable, angry or unhappy without reason and prone to say or do something that harms you, your relationships or your life
  • You may have found object breaking eg. glass, crystals, photoframes, etc, especially things that were significant to you
  • You may have suddenly fallen ill without known cause
  • You may have found that bad luck chased you suddenly, eg: you became accident prone, stumbled more, ran into losses or trouble for seemingly no specific reason
  • More severe symptoms have sometimes been observed
  • In case the person’s mind was possessed by the negative attachment or energy, the individual may have refused to accept healing or be in a state of denial as well
  • You may have recieved visions, intuitions and dreams that indicated psychic attack.
  • Basically you may not have been the direct cause of these but a victim of a psychic attack.
  • The best way to confirm is through divination (eg tarot cards) through the help of a reputed psychic expert.

Who is Vulnerable
All that happens to us is a result of our inner world, Our subconscious beliefs, thoughts, emotions and desires become real. Even a psychic attack is somehow linked to your fears and insecurities as the universe is within us.

All of us have a little vulnerable child within who is innocent and needs to feel safe and this also makes us vulnerable. Even if we are powerful spiritual masters we need to constantly amplify our positive energy and keep ourselves strong.

Magick is not a one time thing but a constant way of life.

Some new age experts talk a lot about creating positive energy without giving due focus on cleansing, repelling and transforming negative. Its like wearing fresh clothes and perfume without taking a bath. Banishing negative is equally important.
How to Prevent and Handle a Psychic Attack


- Psychic shielding: This works best if you have learn energy healing
methods. Just visualize a shield around you in the beginning of the
day and at night before sleeping and again whenever you need it
through the day or night. This can be a sphere of blue or white light
in its simplest form.
- Crystals: Hematite is known to shield you psychially. Wear or carry
hematite in the form of ring or pendant for example. It can also
absorb a strong psychic attack and break thereby warning you and
protecting you else the energy may have hurt your life instead.
Tiger’s eye is a good reflective crystal and good against negative
energies. So is cat’s eye. Tourmaline is absorbent and helps protect
you to an extent. Other crystals are garnet, amethyst, sugilite (a
powerful crystal related to Archangel Michael).
- Herbs: Sage, Angelica, Hyssop, Witches grass, Rue, Sulfur, and many
others can be used in spells, potions, oils and herb form.
– Talismans,yantras and amulets: The pentacle and the star of David are popular talismans for protection. There are several others too
from various cultures that are magically powerful.  The evil eye from
turkish culture is one way of preventing jealous energies.

- Angels, gods and goddesses: Being in touch with your higher self
that can take the form of angels, gods and goddesses is a good idea.

- Meditation, Spells, Magickal skills, Energy Healing and Grounding:
Meditative techniques, spells, magick and energy skills are a
must-learn for all of us and should be taught since childhood. Spells
are some of the more powerful ways to prevent, repel and reverse
psychic harm. Grounding for example is a way of releasing negativity
and converting it to positive energy. There are candle burning spells
and rituals and several other advanced methods that need to be learned
or followed under professional guidance.

A Case Study of a Psychic Attack:

I have been using Hematite rings for quite some time now and havefound they usually do not break unless they absorb negative energy . Last year for a small period of time they broke continuously though I kept replacing them. It was brilliant that some of them broke spontaneously
without any externally visible force.I also used tiger’s eye in angel and pendant form to provide additional protection and these too broke almost immediately – an indication of a strong psychic attack.When we start working with energy things become even more clear to us.

I performed a divination and also recieved psychic messages of who the attacker was and found that there were more than one. It is important that we do not return a psychic attack with an attack. Harm in return of harm can only spoil things further. I focused on sending healing vibrations to myself and others.

I found the reason for this was the emotional insecurity of
the senders of this psychic attack whose negative belief systems were
creating this type of energy for me and a friend of mine.

I also did chakra-meditations and spells to heal the negative and
convert it to positive, for example a binding spell to prevent the
person who is trying to harm you from harming you further.
I also performed a spell to reverse the negative effects of the attack
from my past.

If the person who attacked you tries this again as I found out in this
case we need to give further healing. Recently I found that this
individual once again tried to send a psychic attack to me creating
ripples of confusion and misunderstanding between me and a significant
other for which I had to perform a ritual cord cutting and banishing.
It is necessary to cut the cords between you and the attacker so that
the same scenario can be prevented in future and to send blessings and
healing to all concerned including the sender of the psychic attack so
we all become more positive and less prone to negativity.

Thankfully I know many spells to repel and reverse negative energy but it is great to be warned clearly and I am glad that I have the knowledge and skills to identify negative energy and heal the same.

I focused on forgiving myself, the attacker and all others who played a role in this situation. It is not necessary for us to carry the pain and suffering in our heart no matter what others may have done. It is up-to us to release the pain from ourselves and forgive so that we can move on further, detached from the negativity. This does not make what they did right. This only means we stop hurting now and release the unwanted energy and emotions.

I also send love and compassion to myself and others including
the one who intends me harm as I believe that people who are happy and loved do not harm others. We all need and deserve love and happiness, and happy people do not hurt themselves or others. I focus on creating happiness and focus on sending love to myself and others.

When I find myself becoming bitter and insensitive I try to realize the same as soon as possible and to cancel out these negative effects through healings and spells and by looking within me for answers.

Note: All techniques mentioned are advanced methods to be learned or attempted under the right guidance of an established expert

Most Important Advise

Do not go looking for negativity and do not make it a habit to obsess over psychic attacks and so called black magic or dark arts constantly.  There are some people who have been blaming all their life problems on black magic and psychic attack instead of meditating and discovering how they attracted this to them in the first place. A Psychic Attack may be in some way or another your own negative karma coming back your way.

If these things exist they are only indicators of our own inner vulnerabilities and weaknesses that they expose bare open. When something like this happens try to address the inner weakness and vulnerability that they represent within you. Always remember – The Universe is Within and each thing we observe and experience, each person, place or situation, is only an aspect of our self that needs love, healing and positive transformation.
