Retrogrades: Mercury

Retrogrades: Mercury
(Original publication date unavailable)
Yup we are in the first “official” mercury retrograde of 2017, we will have 2 more this year, so¬†let’s¬†dive in, shall we ;D
Retrogrades: when the planetary forces are moving backward or are reversed.
Translation: Things are gonna get a little wonkyfied.
Mercury Represents: 
Communication, Technology, Transportation, Travel, Intellect, Trickery, Business.
Ruler of the signs Gemini & Virgo
Mercury retrograde:
Mercury retrogrades three times per average year for anywhere from 3-5 weeks each time.
When the planet of Rational Thinking, Communications, Equipment, and Business Transactions, stops operating normally, it leads to all sorts of annoying events.
This is a good time to take stock of where you stand and come to terms with reality- no¬†rose-colored¬†glasses …no Fluff… just the facts.
It’s a time to lay low, process and¬†digest¬†the information that you have on hand rather than adventure out into unknown & undiscovered territory.
Visualize and perceive things from your internal point of view and don’t start anything new until after the last retrograde shadow zone is passed. When the planet of ‚Äúbusiness‚ÄĚ is going in reverse, it is also a good time to finish up old business (i.e., pay bills, clean out the closet, etc.)
*Also for the Mercury ruled out there,
¬†I’m¬†talkin¬†to you Gemini and you Virgo …don’t¬†be surprised if you feel¬†a little¬†off and your normal clear mind & eloquence desert you.
Keep calm, all storms pass!
Actually, you know what, go dance in that rain!!!!!!
The Three phases(remember a retrograde is like an Oreo cookie- 1st shadow zone, retrograde, finale):
March 27th, 2017, Mercury enters shadow zone :
During this phase, you will get an idea of the communication, business, travel and technology issues that will be of concern during the retrograde phase.
 
#2¬† The Actual Retrograde=¬† the planet during its retrograde phase ‚Äúrevisits‚ÄĚ that issue or event, which may also entail delaying the resolution or realization of action.
April 9th, 2017, Mercury The Retrograde:
Areas of life that were a major focus during the 1st shadowzone now come to the forefront for our working out-through-against.
May 21st, 2017, Mercury retrograde finale/ 2nd shadowzone:
This completes the final phase of the first Mercury retrograde of 2017. Your communication, business, travel, and technology issues that were in focus during Mercury retrograde can now be finalized & will be brought to a close (like it or lump it).  
 
Advantages, Opportunities & how this helps us:
A Mercury Retrograde teaches us the value of silence, rest and unplugging from our technology-saturated lives.
There is so much noise in our society!
Sometimes¬†it’s¬†nice to just enjoy Rain on a roof, a walk in the woods or a steamy mug of hot tea in PEACE!
Well, this is what Mercury Retrograde brings you, the excuse to shut up, sit down, and take a load off!!!!
Computers, laptops, phones, tablets, and technology tends to fritz up. Arguments, disputes, misunderstandings, problems, and mistakes go on the rise.
No new business,¬†don’t¬†sign any contracts, buy new items or start new projects.
Transportation in all of its forms will have a plethora of hiccups and mistakes,
Communication becomes twice as difficult
(lots of miscommunication and misunderstandings! If you have any altercations during this time, just forgive everybody involved and move on!!! Because I guarantee that nobody meant for things to go sideways and they probably¬†couldn’t¬†get the right words to express themselves properly to come out. If possible wait to talk things out with any loved ones or anyone important to you),
Because instead of actually COMMUNICATING,
we are REACTING-
from our needs, our hurts, from our buttons being pushed, or the way that we take care of others and neglect the crap out of ourselves. Some astrologers like to call this acting from our shadow, in reference to our shadow selves- emotional id- etc.
Also now is the worst time to do anything untoward!
Just stick to being aboveboard and honest, Communication is gonna fuzz up anyways so why make it worse?
It is a great time, however, to plan, research, and prepare for things that will come later.
 
These are things that can help mitigate its influences:
Preparation and allowances for hiccups and technical difficulties in the above-mentioned areas, wait the 5 weeks till this is over to chat about anything important,
REMEMBER: things generally have nothing to do with YOU,
so take NOTHING personally right now,
Mountains are mountains and molehills are molehills- keep them separated by strong defining lines.
Crystals:
Blue calciteРSpeak what you need to say, cuts through  Mercury retrograde garble, allows you to truly listen to the other person, filters garble
Blue lace agate-helps you actually find the words and say what you want to say without the  Mercury retrograde garble
Sodalite– clears out mental fuzz (which is synonymous with Mercury retrograde)
Green calcite-happy harmonious communication-overcomes trust barriers
Prehnite– compassion for others and healing oneself along with moving past trust issues
Peridot-calms tempers(which will flair with all of the miscommunication)
Dragon quartzРmotivation (gets you over the sluggishness and fogginess of Mercury retrograde )
Or if you wish to use this time to your advantage: 
Slowing down, talking less, unplugging from tech overload, relax & read a book. Just kick back as much as possible right now!!!
Enjoy the break!!!
Crystals:
Rose quartz-who¬†doesn’t¬†need some¬†self-care¬†after all the person to person BS of¬†¬†Mercury retrograde
Prehnite-lots of healing work after  Mercury retrograde
Sodalite-calms a mind full of anxiety and fog
Amethyst-clears up depression and helps with sleep & intuition
CitrineРkeeps you sunny and positive, keeps others negativity at bay, shuts down an overactive inner critic
Moonstone-tunes you into your intuition so as you can navigate some of those major road bumps ahead.

Himalayan Salt lamps, Hype or Help

Himalayan Salt lamps, Hype or Help

(Original publication date unavailable)

 

Ok,
HSL’s (Himalayan Salt Lamps) have experienced a huge boom in the last 2 years, everyone wants one, has one, needs another.
In my personal experience, These things are a HUGE help.
You don‚Äôt know what you‚Äôre missing if you‚Äôve never slept or sat by a Himalayan salt lamp. It‚Äôs like having an open window ‚Äď a softly glowing natural source of fresh, clean air ‚Äď on your desk, in your living room, next to the bed, or anywhere you decide to put it.
 
How does it work?
The warmth of the candle or light bulb reacts with the natural crystal salt, releasing negative ions into the air.
Nifty factoid:
Looking at the light also boosts your serotonin ( thought to be a contributor to feelings of well-being and happiness) level making it easier to sleep, concentrate, and meditate.
On a strictly energetic level, Himalayan Salt Lamps are a great cleaner.
They cleanse & purify the environment around them.
And it is still salt, It is awesome for keeping negative stuff out of your space.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs just a big chunk of salt with a light bulb inside,¬†I’m¬†skeptical on all of these health benefits that I see advertised?‚ÄĚ you might say…….
No worries, I was too.
And yes and no, it IS a big¬†ol’ chunk o salt…..but its also a little more complicated¬†than¬†a big block of salt with a bulb inside.
Himalayan salt lamps purify air through the power of¬†hygroscopy¬†((of a substance tending to absorb moisture from the air,¬†relating to humidity or its measurement.)¬†, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment and then absorb those molecules¬†‚Äď as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying¬†‚Äď into the salt crystal.
As the  Himalayan Salt Lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb or candle inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt.
Nifty, Hunh?
 
What are the benefits?
Here are a few of the benefits (just punch Himalayan Salt  into google and you can read a ton of articles on the lamps, the salt, the shot glasses, the cutting boards, etc):
  • Increased energy levels
  • Better sleep
  • Improved depression
  • Reduced stress
  • Salt Lamps Cleanse & Deodorize the Air
  • Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation
  • Treat Seasonal Effective¬†Disorder
  • Reduced allergy or asthma symptoms
  • Plus they are super pretty!!!!!!!
 
How big of a lamp do I need for my home?
The equation is roughly 1 pound of Himalayan Salt for every 2 square feet of an environment.
Below are some of the more popular sizes of Himalayan Salt Lamps and the area that they cover:

 

5-7 lbs. salt lamp¬†— 10×10 sq. feet (small bedroom)

9-11 lbs. salt lamp¬†— 12×12 sq. feet (large bedroom)

12-15 lbs. salt lamp¬†— 14×14 sq. feet (living room)

40-50 lbs. salt lamp¬†— 30×30 sq. feet (joined rooms & commercial spaces)
How can I tell if I have a fake on my hands?
(yup, just like everything else in the world people have stooped to faking salt lamps, the sadness in this is epic)
Here are a few signs to watch for:
*Its very light colored and is stupidly cheap
 White Himalayan salt is harder to come by than the usual pink that you see everywhere. Genuine white Himalayan salt lamps tend to cost several times as much as regular ones.
White Himalayan salt lamps are the preferred variety for detoxification and healing by some schools of energy healers. For everyone else, the Pink variety is gonna be awesome
*Its very heavy but lights up the entire room.
When a Himalayan salt lamp exceeds roughly 20 pounds, it is not going to give off light in a uniform pattern That’s just the nature of the creature.
So, If you have a large  Himalayan Salt Lamp that lights up your entire bedroom without any striations, a pretty & effective lamp for sure, but not an actual Himalayan Salt Lamp.
*It¬†doesn’t¬†break or¬†crumble, no matter what
Himalayan salt lamps tend to be fragile. And are very poorly affected by moisture and humidity (they start sweating and condensating, then you have moist salt dust-its gross).
So if you‚Äôve dropped yours, put it in a steamy bathroom, or the shipping box has arrived rather roughed over. But the lamp looks good as new, its a quality piece of merchandise, but¬†it’s¬†not¬†a¬†Himalayan Salt Lamp.
*The Lamp Handles Moisture Well
Genuine Himalayan salt manufacturers recommend that their products be placed in a cool, dry area. That‚Äôs because¬†the salt will absorb any moisture around it and begin to shrink.¬† You¬†can test your lamp by taking a damp cloth and gently rubbing the lamp. The part of the cloth you‚Äôve rubbed should have noticeable discoloration and the lamp should look like it‚Äôs ‚Äúweeping.‚ÄĚ
*You¬†don’t¬†experience any changes
All of your life’s problems are not going to be solved by a Himalayan salt lamp.
(But it would be super nice right lols!!)
But after a couple weeks of using one in your home, you should notice a few differences. One of them being a more content feeling, the other a noticeably better nights sleep.
Should I get one?
I¬†don’t¬†know,¬†that’s¬†up to you.
Personally, I have one in almost every room of my house, no bathrooms (Because I want mine to have a nice long life )due to the humidity(Its still hardened salt after all), and the effects are very noticeable.
I am more at peace, I sleep better, I have fewer allergy symptoms, I find meditation easier, I am more focused, I concentrate easier ( And that is saying sumthin with a 13-month-old lol).
I will warn that if you have a bunch of them all lite up, some people have related stories of the lamps having a drying effect. I haven’t experienced this but, I got one for my Mom and she said her eyes dried out.
*Side note:
As I type this up, I am sitting in my shop with 8 of them on. And IT IS GREAT!!!!!!!!
****But don’t¬†just take my word for¬†it,¬†get out there and research it!****

Quick tips: Personal Energetic cleansing

Quick tips: Personal Energetic cleansing

(Original publication date unknown)

Energetic cleansing is so very important because every day, all day we are constantly hit with what other people are diffusing from their energetic state.
Now dont get me wrong, we all have funkified energy.
But this is about how to flush out other peoples garbage, that way you can deal with just your own.
Think of it like walking around and anybody, Within I’d say probably at least a ten-foot radius around you, has left a chalk handprint on you – all different colors because we’re all feeling different things throughout the day.

Some people are even strong enough that they can project their emotions over the phone, which is why people in phone jobs, come out of them looking so Haggard.

They seem like they’ve been through a war zone,
because they’re dealing with that all day every day, on top of all of that “wonderful for the soul” verbal abuse.

And no matter what, it weighs on you.

If you don’t flush that off at the end of the day it’s like going without a shower.
If you went for months without a shower, Not only would smell pretty bad, but you would start to have some physical repercussions- not to mention the emotional and psychological repercussions.
2 months, three months, 4 months, a year, 2 years…… pretty soon you’re getting to the point where you’re really not feeling well at all.
All of the other people’s negative emotions or positive emotions have collected on you, and you have no way to flush them off or at least you don’t know how to.
All of a sudden you start to get things like, mental anxiety disorders, depression, anger problems, etc.
Sometimes it will manifest as physical disorders.
Alot of this can be counter-acted by flushing out The unwanted alien or foreign energy,
hence this article & subsequent class that I will be teaching on this.

A few tips:
Dance-move your body,
When you are moving you are getting your endorphins flowing, which feels great.

But also, you are working ALL of that stuck/nasty energy out of your system. you are basically transmuting it by using it to fuel what you are doing.

Burning calories, burning away nasty energy from your system, and feeling awesome! Cool Hunh!! ( Try going to a good outdoor rave. The DJ has to be really good! you are dancing/transmuting as well as getting some of the best sound therapy. Bonus, with everyone else transmuting anything negative into positive energy, you are actually enshrouded in positive energy. Plus it is great for moving meditation.)

Salt baths-
Salt is amazing for clearing out junky, nasty energy. It is purity embodied.
Showers will blast alot of nasty energy off of you just by themselves.

Visualization-

1. Visualizing a bright white light surging through every nerve and fiber of your being (either from the sky through you to the ground, or from the earth through you to the sky. Depending on which method resonates with you.) and cleaning out anything that is stuck within you.

2. Visualizing opening your chakra centers and having a white light blasting through your chakra points and then closing them afterwards. (do this in the shower, it helps alot)

Iv also been told that Qi gong is wonderful for clearing yourself, but I cannot confirm this personally.

Some essential tools and why they help:

White selenite- Anybody dealing with the public needs at least 2 chunks of this!! Selenite (especially white) is THE energetic flush stone (See my article on Gemstone Therapy for the Why it works question).
And it is self-cleaning,so its super low maintenance.

Black kyanite- Chakra aligner and Auric field hole fixer. Used in conjunction with White Selenite it will break up any really stubbornly stuck energy.

Black tourmaline (2 chunks)- This is THE Empathic blocker stone, but it also has a tendency to absorb negative energies so if your in a particularly nasty environment , switch your stones midway through your day. Then clean them out with either early morning sunlight (between sunrise and around 11am, when the sunlight is at at its strongest) or a nice chunk of white selenite.

Himalayan salt lamp-Cleanses & purifies both the air & the energy that surrounds it. It also boosts your seratonin level, making you sleep better, concentrate more effectively, and feel happier.

Singing bowls- Sound therapy and vibratory resonance are wonderful things for breaking up nasty energetic crap.

Sage-It is wonderful for clearing nasty energy and a time honored tradition.
(Link to article How the F*** do I Sage??? is coming as soon as I can repost it, please check back)

Pendulum (for chakra checking)- A Pendulum is a seriously useful tool for making sure of where your energy levels are and how they are flowing. An easy way to do this, is to check your Chakra centers.
(Link to article on Pendulums??? (Link as soon as I can get the pendulum article back up)

Salt body scrub (St. Ives makes an awesome one,)-Again salt is amazing for clearing out junky, nasty energy. It is purity embodied. And this is way easier then rubbing yourself with seasalt! 😀

Shower- Running water will get rid of alot of negative energy. This is part of the reason why I shower at night, at the END of the day…and because Im a slow starter in the morning lol.
*You will find that if you are in a really bad mood, try taking a shower- you will feel SO much better. Add some happy music, singing and sea salt….I betcha find that you are in a FANTASTIC mood when you get out.

Water- Also drink alot of water, it will help keep you balanced and flush the over abundance of chemicals that are all around us out of you. Its sound funny, but when you are flushed and hydrated, you can better sense when you need to clear or shield your own energy.

Sharp obsidian blade (for energetic cord cutting)- Obsidian makes any nasty energy pack up and leave. and as per the previous article on Energetic cord cutting(link here), you want to make sure your not hooked up to anyone that you dont want to be.

There are other things that you can do of course, but these are some things that I have found really help out.

****But don’t just take my word for it , get out there and research it!****

Here is what I know: Energetic Links

 

Here is what I know: Energetic Links
(Original publication date unavailable)

Energetic cords, links or attachments are something that has been talked about for some time and at great length amongst Metaphysicians, Pagans and New Agers.

But it has come to my attention that this is a subject that is woefully under-addressed in the metaphysical & new age communities today.

So I have decided to write a short article on it.
There will be a more in-depth article drawn up by Reiki Master Amber Smith on this topic, at some point.

What is Energcording,ing , Energetic linking , Energetic Attachment, Soul cords?
It is exactly as described, it is a link between two people energetically.
We all have an energy current running through us.
Some people call it a soul, some people refer to it as a life spark, astral energy, etheric energy, chi.
Whichever, the name is unimportant,
it is the energy that keeps you vertical, ventilating and thinking. Anyone can tap into this for their own purposes if you are unprepared (or unprotected).
You can pass emotions,chi, energy, back and forth along these links.
Most varieties are formed for the purpose of a one way energy transference, but some links can be two way conduits.
A lot of people don’t even realize that they’re linking to someone else or being linked to by someone or something else. And almost no one figures out that they are being energetically siphoned from.

How they come about?
Almost any links(cords, attachments) form due to an effort of will. It can be conscious or unconscious, but if you put your mind-will-desire to it (even subconsciously), you will have yourself an energetic link. Heck some just form because the people are thinking about each other a lot.

Why are some links good and some links very bad for you?
It is completely dependent upon the motivations of the person or persons that are involved. If you have a negative purpose in mind, the link will act negatively. Conversely , if you have a positive purpose in mind, the link will be a positive one.

What are some examples of energetic cording?
Psychic vampirism is a more dramatic one, But it gets the point across.
If you have ever had an Ex that you just cant seem to get past, you guys probably have an energetic link.
When a parent contacts their child after something traumatic happens, they felt their off springs heartache.
Distance healing in a Reiki session.
I could list a ton of examples, but I need to keep this article somewhat short.
And, again these things can develop with very little effort on either persons part.

What can energetic linking do?
The MOST common types are to achieve energy transference.
But a link can accomplish many things,
emotional stabilizing ,
healing an illness,
giving comfort (having a solid energetic presence besides your own),
it can also be used to gather information psychically,
personality transference, motivational transference, distance healing.

What types of energetic cording are there?
Emotional, Energy, Psychic, Healing, But basically just energetic.
Now, there can also be psychic links between two people (a topic for a different article).
Think of an energetic cord like an umbilical cord, now think of that cord being able to attach anywhere.
Any chakra, to your auric field, back of the neck, anywhere.
There are also negative entity attachments,
Now THAT is a whole nother article.

*Negative entity attachment:
I am doing an article on this by itself, as well as a class on how to deal with this situation (which is more common then you might think)
But In brief, A negative entity (Human at one time, never human, different dimension in origin, etc).
Important points:
how strong the entity is?
How much will you have to use to get it gone?
If you will need help?

Negative entities are here (and they are all over the place lookin for new hosts) for different purposes, but their primary motivation is to feed. They are hungry, and our energy is their food.
When these critters find a “flavor” that they like (sadness, grief, anger, jealousy, paranoia, etc…heck sometimes just having alot of energy can look tasty), they stay with it and often times provoke the emotional or mental state needed to make the energy that they eat.

And the misconception that if you are a good, positive person who is completely white light, you will never have to deal with this type of entity is ABSOLUTE HORSESHIT!!!!!!

You dont have to be a bad person for bad stuff to happen to you!!!
And to be honest, its more like a mugging- sure there are steps that you can take to be safe, but it can happen at any time, any where, & to anyone.
Moving on.

How do I know if I have an energetic cord or link?
When you are feeling consistently tired for NO reason, you probably have a cord pulling energy from you.
Also, Look at yourself and innate traits, if these have gone off the mark then you know you are being influenced. Such as If all of a sudden you have a deep driving urge for coffee, and you have always hated coffee and are a tea drinker. Now definitely investigate anything health, chakra, etc wise. But if all investigation turns up no reason for the change, or if you notice multiple other inexplicable changes… you probably have a link and/or link energetic backwash.

Another really good sign is if all of a sudden(and I mean out of the blue , generally after meeting someone physically though) you just cant seem to stop thinking about someone, they invade your thoughts when there is no reason for them to. Generally a good sign that they either conciously or inconciously “corded” to you.

Cut that cord!!!

How do I get rid of these cords or energetic link?
Energy follows thought, So any cord can be cut with an effort of will.
Some people use iron daggers, I personally reccomend visualizing a large pair of scissors, a sharp knife of your choice or if you need a physical item then a sharp black obsidian blade. Then go over yourself with this implement, visualized or physical, and picture yourself cutting through cords along your body. You will come to a cord or two that are more difficult to “slice” through and these are particularly strong ones.
Remember, distance plays no part in removing links, as the cords can stretch however far they need to.
And something to keep in mind,
know yourself and be yourself. It is a good block against cording, the absolute refusal to accept anything that does not serve you.
This will also help to reverse an unwanted cord,
thereby causing energy to be expended on the other parties end to deflect what you are sending.
Refuse to accept the cord, the ideas, the energy that is sent to you.

Example:

If someone comes to you and says “blah blah blah, you are or you need to be this way” ,Say mentally or verbally “I refuse any verbal-psychic-energetic-emotional suggestion to be that way, I reject your suggestion entirely”
Then go home and slice those cords!

Crystals that help to deflect unwanted links:

Black obsidian

Citrine

Black onyx

Peridot

Black Agate

Black Star Diopside(Black Star of India)

 

If I cut all the cords, will the ones that I want to have, go away too?
Absolutely not.
Your positive links are 100% safe from cord cutting.
If you want a link, you can try everything in the book and it wont go away, Because you are willing it to stay.
No matter how good or bad a link is for us, if we want it-for whatever the reason, then we wont be able to get rid of it.
It always comes down to will and intention.

How would you form a positive link?
First, any and all parties need to have a long and in depth discussion.
The link must be discussed and it must be agreed upon to be positive, so as acceptance of link comes with ease and is not fought, and as a safety measure to keep that link positive.
This is dealing with energy, which is completely non corporeal, and again -energy follows THOUGHT- it only takes a thought to start turning a link negative.
So I would have both parties sit down and review their link every week at first and then every couple of months.
Do not let the link go unattended!

I spoke with, long time Metaphysician Jeff Anspaugh to get a point of view with a great deal of field experience. Mr. Anspaugh has over 40 years of experience with Energetic & Psychic linking. And , It was at his suggestion that I included information on forming positive links.

Mr. Anspaugh emphasized the benefits of energetic and psychic linking. He’s had experiences with both positive and negative psychic and energetic links but he feels that there is so much potential for positivity and positive experiences through psychic and energetic linking.

My experiences have been about 50-50 on the subject,

but Mr. Anspaugh has been doing this a great deal longer than I have and he has a world of respect for energetic Linking, with nothing but positive things to say about it.

Mr. Anspaugh feels it is a wonderful way to distance heal, also a wonderful way to lend emotional support to someone who is struggling.
He feels that the positive benefits outweigh any potential risks.
Dang, This turned into a LONG article!
Oh well, lols !!!

****But don’t just take my word for it , get out there and research it!****

Here is what I know: Ley lines

Ley Lines
(Original publication date unavailable)

 

So, this is the definition of Ley lines:
‘Ley lines¬†are hypothetical alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths. Their existence was suggested in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, whose book ‘The Old Straight Track’ brought the alignments to the attention of the wider public’.

The concept of Ley lines was first espoused by Mr. Alfred Watkins ( though Watkins also drew on earlier ideas about alignments; in particular he cited the work of the English astronomer Norman Lockyer, who argued that ancient alignments might be oriented to sunrise and sunset at solstices) in Blackwardine, Herefordshire, England ,on June 30 1921.
The origin of the idea that there are veins of energy running through the earth is interminable, but Mr. Watkins was the first to call these veins Ley Lines.

This is what I know about Ley lines:
Think of them as a set of energetic veins that run through the Earth.
Just as you have veins and capillaries in your skin, the earth has its own set of veins and capillaries-which we called Ley lines.
Ley lines being energetic veins cause paranormal phenomenon -practitioners- entities- all manner of spiritual beasties to travel along and be drawn to them. As life is drawn to and travels along waterways, spiritual activity travels along and is drawn to Ley lines.

There are also points where 2 or more Ley lines cross each other, these points are called – Node, nexus,heart-.and are very powerful. These Nodes generally have a radius of stronger energy emanating from them, the size of the ley lines is proportionate to the size of the radius of ambient energy.

You need to know your ley ¬†lines (and before you ask, yes I am working on an accurate map of the Ley lines. But that’s the trick making or finding an accurate map. The Ley lines do tend to follow waterways.) as an energy worker- metaphysician- Mystic- any sort of ritualistic religious practitioner-etc. You need to know if you are by a line/on a line or on a Node, as it will boost all of your spells and your energy work.
Also, unconsciously tapping into a ley line can unintentionally catalyze the effects of any of your practices.
Your work can you get out of hand if you don’t know where you are at on the ley-line grid, very easily.

Which brings us to an important point:
It is also of utmost importance to know whether a Node or ley line’s energy has soured or is polluted, as the ley line pollution can cause¬†your¬†energy work-spellwork-etc to backfire, invite negative energy/entites¬†(which impact every aspect of your life) and, in general cause all manner of problems.
When a ley-line is sour or the energy has become dirty through whichever of various means(including stagnation-like water when it becomes stagnant. Stagnant water is a breeding ground for all manner of pests,fungi, grossness. When energy is stagnant & blocked, it has much the same problem), it affects the surrounding areas and it can travel through the Ley lines to infect other lines as well as Nodes.
The extent of infection is proportionate to the severity of contaminating energy (Contaminating energy can be from metaphysical or mundane factors).
When a line or Node has become infected with polluted or stagnant energy, you will notice surrounding areas feel heavier and begin to deteriorate visibly. The area becomes more run down in appearance, bad elements begin migrating to these areas, when you visit these areas you feel depressed/irritable/anxious or even sick, and darker spirits/entites become more prevalent.

****Also just as a warning label / educational note, basically an FYI : Do Not tap into a dirty Node or ley line. using a sour ley line, will negate any positive effects intended by the practice and would have exponentially worse negative effects on the region in which the work was done. And as a side effect, you will also increase the energetic pollution along that line.***

****But don’t¬†just take my word for it , get out there and research it!****
