As I finish the first book in my brand new Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches Series - PRACTICAL MISCHIEF, I thought I'd share with you a fantastic magickal tip that Belle teaches her niece Gia, who could be the next Queen of Witches, if she can recover her magickal abilities which are "lost," thanks to the magickal mischief and dark magick spells of her other powerful witch of an aunt, Angelica.
Gia, like many of us newbie witches, and even the most powerful of witches, have moments, whether among non-magickal mundanes or fellow magickal folks, where the environment is just too much for our psychic channels to handle.
Let me give you an example...
Going to the grocery (or any large public venue) is often a bit of a challenge for magickal folks. Especially if your talents include clairvoyant skills and/or intuitive and empathic skills.
Why is the grocery a problem?
Because your senses and psychic receptive areas are simply overwhelmed by all of the energies swirling around you.
Peeps with magickal skills are, in a nutshell, people who are very in tune with other peoples' energy as well as all of the energies in their surroundings. It's as if we have large signs on our foreheads that say: "Please allow me to feel, fret about, rejoice over and share everything you are feeling, thinking and worrying about."
So, how do we handle this pouring in of energy fields?
We BUBBLE UP!!!
Yep...think in terms of the gorgeous, sparkly purple and blue bubbles in the image above.
We literally envision large purple or deep blue bubbles and mist forming around us, protecting us and acting as a shield of sorts against all of the various feelings, thoughts, emotions and both positive and negative forces that want to share with us. It's our very own psychic armor so to speak.
Personally, my bubble is very Glinda the Good Witch. I've always sooo luuuvvved her...well...until I saw Wicked, which made me want to be a total Elphaba but in Glinda's fabulous bubble.
I'm getting to the point now where I don't have to BUBBLE UP unless I'm surrounded by people who I sense are very dark and those filled with a lot of negative, depressive energies.
In those rare cases when I do have to BUBBLE UP, because I honestly will do pretty much anything to just stay clear of those emo-monsters and psy-vamps period, I throw up my glowing and very sparkly purple bubble and actually borrow one of my fave lines from Glinda's script:
"You have no power here! Be gone, before somebody drops a house on you, too!"
That's it, D. D. Scott-ville Peeps...when you're feeling overwhelmed, no matter where you are...in other words, if you're far from the quirky fabulous comfort of Oz or Munchkin Land, no need to worry...just...BUBBLE UP!!!
