Discovering Meditation Can Help Develop Intuition, and Banish Depression

Discovering Meditation

Dr. Bernie Siegel

Thanks for visiting. Today I want to talk to you about meditation. I have some new facts, research and fantastic news to share.  I will talk about how meditation can change our lives, improve our health and more!  Regilar maditation can help release your true psyhic potential, aLet’s start with an easy way to learn more about how meditation can be used to banish much sorrow, depression, anxiety.  Basically, this practice can help make you feel better than you do right now.  The first thing I want to introduce you to is free, easy and fun to do.  I’m talking about a series of videos on Youtube:  Guided meditations with Dr. Bernie Siegel.

This man’s wisdom, humor, and colorfully serene meditations got me through some very dark times, and I can’t tell you how excited I was to find that he has many meditations on YouTube! This is a great way to get started in guided meditations if you don’t have much experience. You can also visit his website and find books, tapes, CDs and more from this amazing man.

Meditation and Neuroplasticity

The only thing required is a quiet place to meditate and a willingness to make your life better! Our brains’ Neuroplasticity enables us to actually make changes by using meditation. With meditation, we can strengthen and improve our brain in ways that can be life-changing and extremely beneficial not only to ourselves but to

Rebecca Gladding M.D., author of “You Are Not Your Brain” recently wrote: “The brain, and how we are able to mold it, is fascinating and nothing short of amazing.

 

Meditation can take your mind worlds away, without you ever having to move.

According to a study published in the highly esteemed ‘PLOS Medicine’ journal, people with the most social relationships (both quantity & quality) are not only much happier but live 50%+ longer (!) than the rest of us.

Another study by UCLA Professor of Medicine Dr. Steve Cole showed that “feeling connected” to others strengthens immunity, while other studies have cited lower levels of anxiety and depression, higher self-esteem and empathy, the list goes on.

Since almost all humans have a tendency to obsess over the past and worry about the future (instead of simply being present), too much time alone can have real mental and physical health consequences. Isolation can be good for short periods of time, but the development of psychic and intuitive ability requires interaction with other humans. Networking with like-minded people is a terrific way to expand your horizons, learn new techniques and grow your intuitive potential.

Help for Hermits

Now all you cyber hermits out there (you know who you are) can get the benefits of being a social person, without necessarily having to actually interact with humans. This is especially good news for those of us who suffer Bipolar Depression, Social Anxiety and a host of other conditions that make us tend to keep to ourselves. Meditation, even guided meditation on YouTube can trick our mind into feeling connected with other humans and benefit from the experience every bit as much as naturally sociable people.

Dr. Newburg, now a bestselling author, writes “When people lose their sense of self [in meditation], feeling a sense of oneness, [this] results in a blurring of the boundary between self and others…[with] no sense of space or passage of time.

By making us feel connected to everyone and everything, meditation cancels out the detrimental mental, emotional, and physical effects of loneliness and isolation, conditions that affect more than half of modern society.

While friends come and go, meditation will always be there for you. Especially if you can use mp3, tapes, CDs or yes, even YouTube as tools to help your life become more full and balanced.

Exploring Real Life Community

Now, friends, I am not telling you that you have to be alone or isolated, I’m only offering a helping hand to those people who prefer to keep their own company and eschew crowds and gatherings.  By all means, when you are ready, do seek out resources in your community to explore, and I know you will be delighted by how just the experience of exploring new places and ideas can enrich your life!

For instance, here in Madison Wisconsin, the community is very fortunate to have a place such as Cosmic Delights.

The Madison, Wi group has opened my eyes to many aspects of the psychic and spiritual realm that I just had not even thought much about. A terrific group, easy to share experiences with and learn from, I highly recommend looking for this or similar groups in your area,

Find Your Goddess Connection Through Stones and Crystals!

Many of us search all our lives for something that some never find. Especially in Modern Paganism, there are many faces of the Gods and Goddesses and making a strong Goddess Connection is one of the most powerful and rewarding experiences that can happen to anyone.

What do I mean by Goddess Connection? The Goddess connection is a feeling that one has touched the Divine. It can happen through a chant, or ritual used to call upon the Goddess we feel most akin to. Sometimes, in fact, often, people will feel drawn to more than one Goddess at a time, or different Goddesses at different stages of enlightenment.  There are literally hundreds of Goddesses and trying to explore this subject can be very overwhelming.

One way to explore the Goddess Collection is through stones and crystals.  I have always been drawn to the Mineral Kingdom and even as a small child, I felt the Divine in simple chunks of Quartz.

Photo by Raven Fabal

I have been studying and working with the healing and helping energies of the Mineral Kingdom for over 40 years, and I know first hand how the Divine can work through the stones, therefore I am working on a Goddess Connection to Stones reference. The following is only Part One, and I will let you know when I update it in the future.

I am trying to stock a little of all these stones in my Etsy Shop, but if you don’t see something you need, just send me a message and I will try to find what you need and make of it whatever you would like.

Do you have suggestions for this list? Did I miss something, or would you like to tell the story of your own Goddess Connection? Just leave a comment or write to me via the Contact Me link and I will get back to you ASAP.

Blessings, Raven

Healing Helping Crystal Jewelry Just Listed in my Etsy Store!

Hello all!

I have great news! I have just listed a few new items of jewelry that can make you feel better, work more efficiently and look awesome all the while! There are many stones that can benefit us humans, but the ones that I recently worked on are going to be absolutely fabulous!

Double Tabular Quartz Necklace

First up, Tabular Quartz Crystal with “Baby” Tabular Quartz Crystals are the “Communicators.” These crystals are willing helpers in facilitating clear and helpful information between two people who may be having communication issues. This tabby having a baby stone on its flat side facilitates communication with children especially well. This piece is embellished with two silvery feathers, representing flight and freedom.

Tumbled Aragonite Necklace

Next up and so amazingly surprising, Aragonite! This is a pretty fantastic gemstone, and the tumbled pieces are a lovely soft beige and brown color with some ivory colored streaks. This stone needs no embellishments so I used a very simple setting and let the beauty and magic of the stone speak for itself.   Aragonite provides strength and support, helping to combat anger and emotional stress. Aragonite is attuned to the Earth Goddess, encouraging conservation and recycling. It is a reliable earth-healer and grounding stone. Aragonite transforms geopathic stress.

Baltic Amber and Tiger Eye Necklace by Raven’s Creative Outlet

Baltic Amber is next up, and you will be very surprised by the gentle energy of these richly hued Amber nuggets. I combined the Amber with Tiger Eye so that the whole piece works synergistically to promote courage, poise, confidence, and calm.  Meeting future inlaws? Job interview?  Difficulties at work? Throw this powerhouse of a necklace around your neck or even keep it in a pocket and feel the soothing blanket of calm wrap around you! Amber absorbs pain and negative energy, helping to alleviate stress. Amber clears depression, stimulates the intellect and promotes self-confidence and creative self-expression. It encourages decision-making, spontaneity and brings wisdom, balance, and patience.

Tiger Eye is a stone of protection, Tiger Eye may also bring good luck to the wearer. It has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, assisting us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety.

Amethyst Point Necklace by Raven’s Creative Outlet

Last of the new stuff is a really pretty Small Amethyst point, with an unusual silver plated wrap. Amethyst invites peace into your life and helps curb any kind of addictive behavior. Amethyst has healing powers to help with physical ailments, emotional issues, and in Energy Healing and Chakra balancing. Amethyst crystal therapies are primarily associated with physical ailments of the nervous system, the curing of nightmares and insomnia, and balancing the crown chakra. Amethyst brings peace wherever it goes. Known as the sobriety stone, Amethyst helps people break any addictive behaviors.

Please visit my Etsy Shop to see all these and more. If you have special needs, contact me, I may be able to help you! Next to be in the shop? I just received a truly amazing shipment of Lapis Lazuli, full of sparkle and that rich, cobalt blue that was such a favorite of Cleopatra herself! I’ll keep you updated!

Till next time, embrace peace and be happy!

New Hand-painted Dragon Eye Pendants in Raven’s Creative Outlet!

 

Red/Gold Dragon Eye, GLOWS in blacklight!

I just completed some Hand-painted Dragon Eye Pendants and many other new treasures to go in my Etsy shop, Raven’s Creative Outlet! My hand-painted Dragon eyes

are just beautiful, even if I do say so myself. I create them by painstakingly applying layer upon layer of enamel, to build up a hyper-realistic look that shimmers and seems almost real.

This Hand-painted Dragon Eye GLOWS in blacklight.

I’ve been working very hard to get back on track with my crafting, and especially my woodworking, as that’s very difficult for me to do in the Wisconsin winter, on my open porch/workshop. More on that soon, but for now, there is a whole new world of goodies in my shop now, including my Psychic readings, Spell candles and more! Stop into my Etsy Shop and have a look today! I will be adding some more meaningful content to this site very soon. I’ve just been working very hard and meeting so many amazing people at Cosmic Delights, it’s been hard to find the time to write! 🙂 Speaking of Cosmic Delights and my readings there, I will soon be offering Palm Printing to go with the Palm Reading that I do!

 

Stephen and I are bringing back something we used to carry in our old store and expanding on the original idea, that is, Pewter jewelry and Pewter combined with semi-precious gemstones to provide both beauty as well as metaphysical benefits!  Not to worry I’ll be back with lots more information and new goodies to tell you about soon. Send me a question related to my crafting or psychic readings to be entered for a free advanced Psychic Tarot Reading that I’m giving away this month.  As always, if you have need of witchy services, be it spells, ritual tools or just ingredients for making your own magic, please contact me and I’ll see what I can do to help.

In the meantime, have a happy day!

New Magical Amulets for the New Year This Saturday!

Today, I made some new Magical Amulets! Using herbs, oils, gemstones and some secret ingredients plus just a pinch of magic, I make them in three varieties as well as custom Magical Amulets for any number of purposes. Many people use these to help them with everyday challenges. Some reasons to order custom Magical Amulets is so that they can  provide help with headaches, body pain, learning and retention of knowledge, courage and leadership and many more. The three pre-made varieties of Magical Amulets I offer are Peace and Prosperity, Money and Success, and last, but by no means least, Love and Passion.

Magical Amulets by Raven

I use many elements in creating these magical tools, including spellwork and gems. Some of the gemstones I use are

Some of the gemstones I use to make Magical items
  • Rose Quartz,  for love

  • Citrine, to bring positive feelings, and joy

  • Hematite, for grounding and to banish negativity

  • Aventurine, tom draw prosperity and success

  • Amethyst, to break addictions and bring peace

  • Clear Quartz, to magnify all other stones and spells

  • Tiger Eye, for courage and masculine energy
  • Sodalite, for pain relief

  • Moonstone for feminine energy and issues

I also use Cinnamon, Sage, Black Salt, Pink Salt, Clove, Rose Petals, Marigold, Catnip, Calendula, Almond oil, Cayenne, Tea Tree, and more.  They are enchanted, Reiki charged, Blessed and empowered to work for the individual who wears or carries them.

Catnip
Hot Pepper

These are a wonderful way to treat yourself or someone you love to a bit of good fortune! Easy to use, these beautiful creations work all on their own, empowered and positively charged. The magical work is all done, they need nothing other than the will of their wearer to direct their power.

These are similar in action to my Magical Spell Candles, but are ready to use, with no meditation needed. Their magic is passive rather than active, and is one of the most time-honored of magical items. Come by Cosmic Delights located at 2717 E Washington Ave, Madison, WI 53704 and have a look at them, or phone (608) 467-3093 to make an appointment to see me on Saturdays for a psychic reading or consultation. Custom amulets and other items are available after a brief consultation to determine your needs.

Happy New Year, my friends!

Magical Amulets to Wear, Spell Candles to Fire Up Some Magic!

I’ve just created a new batch of Spell Candles and Magical Amulets for sale at Cosmic Delights, here in Madison, Wisconsin, where it is my pleasure to offer Psychic Readings each Saturday from 1 to 6 PM.  My cauldron bubbleth over with creativity this month and magic is in the air!

My Spell Candles are built up slowly, beginning with a pure white core, signifying purity of intent, and then slowly, layer by layer, I add herbs, oils, gemstones and good old fashioned spellwork until each one is complete.

My Magical Amulets are created as wearable magic. Protective and constructive bits of magical energy, enchanted so that they will tune into the needs of the wearer.

Both Spell Candles and Magical Amulets may be created just for you for specific purposes just see Raven at Cosmic Delights, from 1 to 6 PM on Saturdays to place your order, or conact me through this website’s “Contact Me” page.

I currently offer Spell Candles and Magical Amulets in three varieties:

Love and Passion

The Magical Amulets and Spell Candles in this variety are a bright red in color and has many elements of oils, herbs and gemstones making it a powerful tool. My protected recipe for these includes many things. Below are a few of the elements I use.

Rose Quartz, to attract and hold love,to draw positive emotions out both for one’s self and for/from others. Besides those uses for a love Amulet, there are many other benefits provided by this beautiful pink gemstone. Rose Quartz is used to heal ailments of the thymus, heart, and lungs. Rose Quartz is also known to help heal breast cancer and is an excellent support stone for most other types of cancer as well.

 

Catnip is a very old and time honored spell ingredient. Often used to enhance beauty and draw love and affection, this herb and it’s essential oil are very effective when used in magical workings to create and draw love and passion. Interesting to note is that not all cats react to catnip in the typical way, and only about 70% of cats get the “playful crazies” from smelling it. However almost all cats, including some big cats get sleepy and relaxed from eating it!

 

A variety of hot spices and peppers are used in spells to inflame passion and make physical love more rewarding.  I choose to use the most proven ones, including Cayenne, Chili peppers and a few other secret ingredients to achieve the most potent results! Another little known effect of using hot peppers in spellwork is their ability to inspire a person to action and almost jolt one into forward action, often helping people to break laziness and a tendency to inactivity.

Money and Success

The Magical Amulets and Spell Candles in this variety are a rich green in color, signifying the wealth and prosperity they draw to the user. While success and healing are also part of it’s magic, this powerful tool can be a omen of great change for the user and also contains many different oils, herbs and gemstones adding to it’s power. Below are only a tiny bit of all that  I use in creating these Magical Amulets and candles.

Cash. Cold, hard currency! To enhance the magic in my money, prosperity and success spellwork, I use actual bits of American Money, legally obtained, and only in small, un-spendable bits, but these bits carry energy and are very powerful in their representation and, when combined in this kind of spell, very good at drawing to the user, more of the same!

 

Malachite attracts wealth and success. It also provides powerful protection, inspires imagination and creativity, which can help one find greater success! So often has Malachite been used by the wealthy and successful, it should be no surprise that Cleopatra used ground up paste of Malachite as eye shadow under her eyes, thereby flaunting her wealth and success! I do not recommend that use however, as powered Malachite is toxic! Fear not, faceted and polished gems are harmless.

 

Pine. Elements of many parts of this tree are combined in my prosperity spells. Pine needle oil, bits of cone and bark are used, too. Pine is helpful in attracting prosperity, purifying and helping one to stay on track and focused, which can help clear the way to success both materially and otherwise! Pine cones and wands ward off evil influences. Also of note – pine is said to increase fertility and help one to enjoy a active and vigorous old age!

 

 

Peace and Protection

This variety of Magical Amulets and Spell Candles are a deep purple color, signifying spiritual serenity, and safe, shielded protection.  Peace is the first job of this amulet or candle but this is a vibrant collection of ingredients that have been used for a long time for elimination of bad energy, chaos and for protection of the user.  While many of the ingredients are a close help secret, I’ve listed below a few  of the components that  I use in creating these Magical Amulets and Spell Candles.

Linden. This tree also known as Basswood or Lime-Tree is often associated with the Tree of Life. Linden wood exemplifies the power of attraction not only for love and harmony, but also strong protection. My Peace and Protection Magical Amulets and Spell Candles use the essential oil for enhancing Good Fortune, ending Sleep Disorders, bringing calm to the user.  The wood is added for protection. On a spiritual level, Linden can help relieve grief as well.

 

Patchouli Plant is one of my favorite herbs for protection and banishing of negative energy and entities. Spelling of the rich earth, this plant is reinforcing of one’s own personal power and helps add to the strength of all the other components in my Peace and Protection candles or amulets.  Interestingly, Patchouli is often substituted or graveyard dust in spells when that element is unavailable.  Other uses for Patchouli include money drawing, and passion spells. Bonus!

 

One of the most important and multi purpose elements of my Peace and Protection products is Amethyst. It is one of the most calming and reassuring gems, and is great for emotional problems and helps prevent worrying overmuch. Known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and enhance meditative state, its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments. Amethyst also helps break the negative cycle of addictive behaviors.

 

How to use Spell Candles and Magical Amulets

The main thing to remember when using any magical tool, like Magical Amulets and Spell Candles is to respect the magic. Always be mindful of the fact that your intent is the most powerful part of any magical undertaking, so keep your focus and intent directed toward your goal.

Spell Candles

When using my Spell Candles, it is of the utmost importance that you focus first on what you hope to achieve and visualize the desired result clearly before you begin. To begin, find a place that is going to be undisturbed for a while, and a flame proof base to put your Spell Candle on. Seated comfortably with the candle in front of you, light it and spend at least 5 minutes watching the flame, trying yo see within it’s depths that which you desire. If your belief system supports it, you may want to ask your deity or the Universe to help you find the result you wish for. Always being mindful of your purpose will help make your efforts successful.  Do not ever leave your Spell Candle unattended, and keep out of reach of children and pets. Monitor your candle as it burns down, trimming the oil, wax and herb crust from the edges each time you burn it, as these can fall into the flame if not kept trimmed and they are flammable.

Magical Amulets

Magical Amulets are very simple in their use. When I create them, they are purposed to serve the person who wears them, so putting it on is all that is needed to make the magic happen. To enhance their effect, a good idea is to hold the amulet in your left hand while meditation on the most important thing you wish to receive from use of the amulet. That simple! Take care to treat them gently. Although the glass bottles are durable, and the cork is epoxied in place after I fill them, they are breakable if dropped on a hard surface or take a hard impact.

Use for Positive purposes only!

Use with only highest and best intent, never negative or dark purpose. My products area all be spelled so that negative or dark use negates their spellwork and power. Used for good though, they can be an extremely powerful tool and can work with you to help make your life better!

I hope that this answers questions about Spell Candles and Magical Amulets, and that they bring to you all the good and positive energy you put into their use!

Blessed Be!

   

 

Summer Psychic Readings and Update

Greetings!

MONARCH ON RED FLOWER

I’m still working with Cosmic Delights here in Madison, doing Psychic Readings every Saturday from 1 PM to 6 PM. I’ve met some amazing people there and happily, I have had many of them become regular clients who I totally enjoy seeing very often. I am even beginning to work with some students on a one-on-one basis, to help them develop their own psychic and magical abilities!

Psychic Readings by Raven

Alas, I have not developed a class for groups yet, but Stephen, my husband and greatest teacher in this life, and I are working on that possibility. Perhaps a Magic 101 type of class, as has been suggested. I will update here and you may also call the store to see if there is anything new on the calendar.

Beautiful University of Wisconsin Arboretum, where I gather much of my wood for crafts

Summertime is when I can finally get out and gather some wood for wand and staff making again, too! I will be working on some wood I gathered last year, (that which the hungry squirrels didn’t eat during the cold months, that it!) and hopefully will have some new wooden crafts to either list on Etsy or put int Cosmic on consignment soon!

I just brought some new Dragon Eye pendants and key chains into the store last week, so if you stop by, look for those, along with my latest batch of Smokeless Smudge, cooked up right here in my own little cauldron!

Summer is not quite here though, Solstice isn’t for a while yet, but it’s coming and that is one of my favorite festival days, so I will let you know what is going on for that occasion. Maybe even Solstice Readings Special!

Well, that’s about it for now. I’m sorry that I had to sacrifice March through June this year to Pancreatitis, but I’m back now and feeling so much better, I just can’t wait to get moving forward again!

Have a great Summer, everyone!

 

Red Tent Presentation, Stones and Crystals for Womens’ Health Went Great!

Hello, Dear Friends!
Today I want to tell you all about Stones and  Crystals and a terrific day of learning that happened recently at Madison’s  Cosmic Delights.
At this Red Tent Womens Gathering, I was honored to introduce many beautiful women to the mineral kingdom. We explored the most powerful stones for women and how to use them in our daily lives. Red Tents are a great place for women to gather, recharge, find support and learn self care techniques.

Stones and crystals have many properties, features, and benefits, and while it is true that not everyone recognizes their metaphysical or spiritual properties, they quietly do their work anyway. Their are many reference books on the market from which to learn stone and crystals’ wisdom. Some are very good and offer an immense database
of information for anyone to tap into. Some others, not so much. I added a few suggestions to the stone guide which every participant received at this gathering, but in case you didn’t get to attend, my favorite gemstone reference books which include descriptions of ALL their properties, not just the scientific descriptions are: 

Stones and crystals have been revered pretty much since life on this earth began for their beauty and by some, for the many spiritual and health benefits they could provide.
The Christian Bible mentions stones and crystals over 200 times. Mayan, Aztec, Native American, African Native, and Celtic peoples all recognized the many uses of crystals and employed them for rituals and ceremonies. The common belief is that minerals are of the earth, and thus connect us to the universal energy of our world. When we use minerals, it must always be for the best and highest good, to benefit all of us and our Mother Earth.


Perhaps you already know a lot about stones and crystals  or have a connection to some that you keep with you or in your home. Many benefits can be had just by carrying them with you or keeping then in your home, working with them as partners in your physical, mental and spiritual well being.


Everyone who attended my Stones and Crystals for Womens’ Health Red Tent Gathering received a pouch with 7 stones to take home for further use. These stones were chosen for their ability to assist women with issues that are unfortunately all too common among many of our sisters living on Earth taday.

Stones and Crystals for Womens’ Health

Clear Quartz – Clear to cloudy in appearance, Quartz helps one to focus and enter a meditative state. It acts as a magnifier for the energies of any other stones and crystals near it, Helps increase personal energy field and shields. Creates almost a “buffer zone” around one who wears it. Assist in healing, and may be charged with intent and purpose to help achieve a specific goal. There are many kinds of clear quartz, with many varied abilities or focuses. To fully understand all the aspects of this stone, additional research may be helpful.

Shungite – Black or silvery in color, Shungite is a very powerful, ancient healing stone. Silver or Elite Shungite is the rarest and strongest form. An excellent stone for empaths or anyone working in the healthcare, this stone absorbs and eliminates negative energies and health hazards to the body. Crystal healers call it the Miracle Stone or Stone of Life Elite Shungite brings positive blessings and positive results. It helps you to know what’s beneficial for a better and healthier future. Shungite infuses your aura with light, allowing only positive, beneficial energies to reach you. It provides a kind of protective shielding for psychics and empaths. It is also a very powerful protection stone, especially from electromagnetic fields and is a perfect stone to keep near your electronics.
Rose Quartz – Pink in color, this stone can be helpful for headaches, skin issues, and fertility problems. It helps relieve the discomfort of menstrual or menopausal problems. Enhances love, both familial and romantic, calls love to appear or grow. A powerful tool for reinforcing current relationships, two of these stones kept together under the bed for a month form spiritual bonds to each other and then each partner keeps one of the stones with them, allowing the stones to draw the partners together, the attraction of each stone to the other helping to keep love strong.
Carnelian – Orange in color, this stone helps with all kinds of women’s health issues. It is a valuable ally in controlling emotional distress and easing loneliness, Carnelian can help one find supportive people. This is a very good stone for introverts and makes any kind of public speaking easier, and meetings more productive.

This stone’s golden color is symbolic of the golden rays of the sun, warming the soul and bringing cheer with it. This stone needs no cleansing as it’s energy is so strong and powerful it collects no negativity!
Amazonite -A beautiful blue-green color, this stone is named for the way it echoes the rich, green color of the Amazon river and the surrounding rainforest. Amazonite helps facilitate loving, compassionate communication. Sometimes called the “stone of hope”, Amazonite is very helpful in recovering from stressful or abusive relationships. The heart, upper chest and throat areas of the body may benefit from crystal therapy using Amazonite. Often regarded as a good luck charm, this powerful stone gently infuses the spirit with your truest intentions, liberating your soul from negative or confusing influences trying to throw you off course. Life may seem overwhelming and bewildering at times, but the Amazonite brings order to chaos with its pure light overflowing with love and hope.
