When our car gets low on fuel we have indicators that tell us to refuel. When our bodies get low on fuel, we usually feel hunger to remind us to refuel. Is there something that tells us our psychic energy is getting low? First of all, what do I mean by psychic energy? Energy that flows freely in and around us and follows our attention where ever our attention goes. The same energy that manifests our experiences of this world.
We have a thought or we say a prayer and then it either manifests quickly, slowly or not at all. Slowly or not at all could be indicators of low psychic energy. Whether we are doing shamanic healing for others or the planet, or if we simply want our own lives to run more smoothly, increasing our psychic energy can fuel the visions. The faster our prayers are answered the more time we can spend on enjoying the adventures of life!
Opportunities for increasing energy are all around us. We only need to recognize them. Like learning where the local markets, restaurants and gas stations are, once you know, it's easy to get there. Nature is filled with abundant energy sources. Streams, hilltops, sunshine, waterfalls, caves, forests, gardens, and animals just to name a few. Sometimes the sheer intensity of energy around you can increase your field of energy. Sometimes its peacefulness can relax you, which has the effect of freeing up blocked energy.
Suppose you live downtown and it's not easy to find waterfalls. One thing you can do is to go to other places in your mind, using vivid imagination from actual memories or from pictures, movies and stories youÌve heard or your own creative inspiration. These journeys can have powerful effects, especially if we notice the energy fields while we're there.
There are many places within a city to experience high energy fields. The top of a city building is a powerful spot. Shopping malls full of people and busy intersections have high energy fields. Any place with high activity or gatherings of people like train stations, concerts, movies, and crowded sidewalks. (That's why, when I go to New York City, I can walk around town for days without getting tired.) And don't forget when you come together in groups, for whatever reason, but especially when the focus is on healing or learning, intense amounts of energy are usually generated and available for increasing your capacity to hold more.
Remember the Principle of Mana: All Power Comes From Within. It's a good idea to be centered and confident so we can remember to select which emotions we want to be affected by.
Advice? Read Serge's Earth Energies or Urban Shaman for many more ways to increase your psychic energy. Carry water with you and remember to drink it. Move your body often, not necessarily in big ways, unless you like that, even small movements like deep breathing and wiggling fingers and toes while you're at a desk can help circulate energy that gets blocked. Keep thoughts positive so your body can be as relaxed as possible. And spread your loving emotional field everywhere you go. We are influenced the most by the nearest, strongest resonant field, so why don't you be the strongest field? That way you can have all the benefits of increasing your own psychic energy and be a shaman healer at the same time!
