Recharging & Renewing Your
(for the naturally psychic)
June 1st, 2018 By Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion
Dear Friends, hi
there! I hope that you had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend and that this week has
gone well for you too. I spent the morning (and part of the afternoon too) working
out in my Fairy Garden, thinning out morning glories, planting more sunflowers, and putting tiny flowers in the ground that
I grew in my greenhouse. (Hello Cosmos!)
Thursdays (and Mondays) are sometimes
my gardening days, since I often work quite a bit doing readings & meeting with psychic mentorship students on the weekends. I have found that on days when I am meeting with people, it is hard to get much done in
the garden, especially if I don’t get it done BEFORE hand.
Like many naturally psychic people (and especially
like most natural empaths), I can enjoy my time with people (at least, when the people are enjoyable, smile). But I do have to spend time re-charging myself after I am done socializing or just being around people. It’s not that the people that I am around most of the time are “bad” or
have anything amiss about their energies—in fact, it’s usually quite the opposite, in that most of the people
I mentor or do readings for (or even just hang out with) have quite wonderful energies indeed!
I connect with people (whether it is in-person, on FB, or via telephone), I REALLY connect, and I put a lot of myself into
it. I make the effort to be fully PRESENT with whoever I am with in the moment.
I say I make “the effort”, but truly, it’s just something that has always come naturally
to me, something that I do automatically. I have also observed other naturally psychic
people responding the same way in their social interactions (giving of themselves fully & completely in the moment when
they are with others). So I know it’s not just me!
Actually, I’ve had to work hard to train myself to hold just a little back if I can, because if I don’t
make the effort to keep a bit of my energy for me (and holding back really IS an effort for me), well then, I will just give
it all out and have nothing left for me.
Sound familiar? (smile) I bet that at least a few of you reading this
newsletter-blog can relate to what I am saying here! For I know that MANY of you readers
are natural born psychics yourselves, and are touched with a bit of the gift, whether you consciously know it or not. At the very least, you probably at least KNOW someone with this tendencies I am describing. (And if so, perhaps you can help them along in life by helping to remind them to take good
care of themselves too.)
Interestingly enough, although I do definitely require
time alone after being with people to get re-charged and re-energized, I also find interacting with people to be quite ENERGIZING in its own way. (Especially when I am interacting
in a spiritual psychic or astrological capacity.) There is nothing that can pump me
up and excite me the same as being with a client or a group and helping them connect with the spiritual psychic realm. (Even
if I do have to rest for a few hours afterwards—sometimes even DAYS if it is really intense.)
And truly, I would not trade my life for anyone else’s. I love what I do and I love the connections that I get to make in my life as a spiritual psychic. And yes, when I say “connections” here, I am referring both to people here on
this plane AND the angels, guides, ancestors and passed-on loved ones who I regularly get to connect with through my work. There is something inherently satisfying & rewarding about being able to connect in
Still, no matter
how much one loves connecting, it is important to take time to re-charge and re-connect with ONE’S SELF. (This is especially true for those of us who are naturally psychically or empathically inclined.)
Of course, this is
sometimes easier said than done, as my experience with the general psychic personality (and many spiritual people too) is
that we don’t always know when to quit or step back, especially when it involves saying “no” or stepping
back from our social or professional interactions for a little while to re-charge. In
fact, the famed trance medium and medical clairvoyant Edgar Cayce is said to have died because he was doing too many readings
a day and just wouldn’t stop.
scenario was probably a bit more extreme than most (since after all, he was one of the most famous trance mediums of all time
and did THOUSANDS of readings in his life). But the point still stands for the rest
of us that we need to listen to our guides (and our own inner guidance system) and know when to actively engage in the world
and with other people, and when to pull back and re-charge and replenish ourselves.
I actually find that the more time I spend recharging
and replenishing, the easier it is for me to connect with others, and the more harmonious these interactions flow. I also find that whenever I start to feel cranky, impatient or short with others, it usually is a sign
that I need to step back and take some time to be alone and replenish myself for a while.
Once I have refilled my cup (spiritually speaking) and spent some time getting
relaxed and replenished, I can usually return back to my outer world interactions with a much more calm & cheerful demeanor.
Just how does one go about spiritually
and psychically re-charging and replenishing oneself? Truly, there are as many different
ways to get psychically replenished and recharged as there are people. Each person
has her (or his) own way of recharging through the activities that are energizing for her.
Generally speaking, when you want to get spiritually and psychically recharged,
it is helpful to unplug from outside communications for a little while if you can, and just be alone with yourself and your
own thoughts. (You may also find
it helpful to spend quiet time alone with just one special friend or family member.)
When you are replenishing, the idea is to give yourself some time and space
to just be, and also give your aura some space to breathe and re-calibrate without too many outside influences.
Many people do find
getting outside in nature to be spiritually nurturing and psychically replenishing. (This
is why there is such a long tradition of mystical gardeners and nature explorers.) Others
find that they are refueled by meditating quietly inside or listening to beautiful music, chanting or singing or even taking
a relaxing bath.
Although you might not think of it as being particularly “spiritual”, watching a favorite TV show
or reading a novel can also help you to replenish and rejuvenate your energies, provided that the show you are watching (or
the novel you are reading) is not too intense and helps you to feel lighter and freer inside.
Whatever YOUR own personal path
is for getting psychically recharged and renewed, I do hope that you will remember to take good care of yourself and frequently
replenish your energies. Bright Blessings!
