Guest Blogger : Herbs to Awaken Your Psychic Potential by Alex Clarke

Today we have an AMAZING pampering Guest Blogger; Alex Clarke! I adore her and her work (and will even be featured in her book "Awaken your Inner Faerie in 30 Days". Just in time for Mother's Day here in the UK, Alex brings us; "Enhance your psychic ability with herbs!"

If sugar and spice and everything nice is what little girls are made of, what are magickal diva’s made of – the answer? Well, keep reading and you are sure to find out!
Everything you put in, on, or around your body affects your well-being. From the colours we wear to the foods we munch and crunch, all will change how we feel. Wonderfully this emotional alchemy process is a personal one – what works for one may not work for another. The transformation of our inner and outer perceptions remains as unique as we are – no one glittery shoe fits all. In essence, what you need will find its way of appealing to you – so take what you need from this article and discard what doesn’t work. Yes yes, there is ancient customs associated with the use of magickal remedies and herbal enhancers but YOU still remain the most important factor in your own psychic development. Trust yourself. You know what’s best.
When looking at herbs we need to be aware that not all elementals are suitable for everyone – especially when we are looking at psychic development. Psychic development is specifically the raising of ones vibration to absorb more information from various debateable sources (debateable as there is no consensus on where we get ‘psychic’ information from). Personally, I believe there is nothing unusual about psychic ability. It is the normal human state. Anything less than fully-functioning perception is a mere disruption of the human capacity to be whole. Your psychic-ness is your humanity. Fundamentally, we are looking to become more human, more of our real nature and this article will look at the elemental teas, tinctures and incenses that can help you re-connect or enhance this wholeness. We are one and claiming your ability to perceive the full richness of interconnected reality, in all its glorious wholeness, is your birth-right!

Herbal and Natural Helpers!

Acacia – sacred to the Egyptians Acacia is great for any type of shamanic otherworldly work. Use as an incense to aid communication with the ancestors or loved ones on the other side –simply burn with the intention to connect.
Laurel – is used by shamans and witches to communicate with spirits who are not our kin, but who want to work with us in this realm of existence. It’s also wonderful when used to connect to our spirit guides, guardians or animal allies! Burn with the spoken intention to connect to your guides or helpers.
Camphor – woo hoo camphor has a double whammy effect. It can give you an influx of prophetic dreams (get those lotto tickets bought!) but also contains a powerful purifying component that’s second to none. Annoying spirits, attachments, or general bumps in the night (of the unpleasant variety) will find new haunts to, well, haunt.
Copal – is my utter favourite for spirit-work. Used by the indigenous tribes of Central America for underworld trance-work. Want visions? Burn copal incense resin to reach the right state. Simply state your intentions and don’t forget to jot down any visions, messages, or impressions that occur.
Dandelion – yes, those brilliant bright sunny weeds you see cracking concrete with their awesome power possess the ability to help your natural pre-cognitive abilities. Great if you are a tarot reader, palmist, or medium, simply have a cup of dandelion tea on hand throughout your readings!

Frankincense – sacred to many in the Middle East and for good reason, not only will it magnify your intention while meditating (or manifesting) but it also helps induce pre-cognitive dreams and visions. Simply burn some before bedtime!
Mugwort – A bowl of mugwort tea can be used to cleanse your scrying crystals such as mirrors, crystals, pendulums and jewellery. Mugwort has been used for centuries to induce visions – simply drink as a tea, elixir or burn as incense for crystal clear premonitions.
Wormwood – sacred to many spirits and faeries, wormwood should be carried not ingested. It can help you connect with many unseen helpers, enhance dreams and your ability to predict events. It has also been long used in protection spells to ward off envy and gossip.
Peppermint – for anyone who is having difficulty connecting with their natural psychic ability this is the starter elemental helper. Peppermint can clear away any fears you have about seeing, feeling, or perceiving your messages, environment or situation clearly. Burn 2 drops of oil at bath time or drink one cup of tea daily in the morning as it will stimulate your third eye and solar plexus during the day. If taken at night it may keep you awake – and you kinda need to be asleep for psychic dreams!
Sage – is another favourite of mine and many native cultures. This helper not only awakens your psychic abilities but will enable you to interpret the symbols from a place of love, wisdom and peace. You can burn dried sage leaves before or during meditation and even add to your bath in the evening to aid mystic dreams.
Thyme – fancy reading the Akashic Records? Of course you do! And thyme is your cosmic library card as it’s believed to enable you to integrate all that was, into all that is, and then into all that will be. (It may even help you interpret that sentence).
Rose – will enhance your psychic ability with great compassion, love and nurturing wisdom. It is one of the most gentle, but potent, spiritual helpers. Especially healing for women (and some men) who were persecuted in past lives for witchcraft. It will dissolve any fear such souls have around using and revealing their innate psychic gifts. Try using rose water to cleanse your third eye before sleep and gradually over time you will start to open up to the wonder of all that is unseen.
St. John's Wort – popular today for treating depression but originally used to resolve pain and suffering from past lives. Its major use shamanically is for enabling astral travel as it serves as elemental protector and guide. Simply use as a tea before meditating or travelling the cosmos!

Magickal bath time!!

Baths! They are genuinely fantastic and brilliant –soothing or invigorating depending on your mood. And, if you are anything like me, they are your creative hub of magical luxury. My best ideas surface when I’m submerged. Indulgence is made for bath time – candles, bubbles, scented oils and now psychic development! So before you settle to meditate, sleep, or preform any form of divination try running yourself a bath with the following helpers infused in the water.

• One/two drops of lavender oil. Lavender is my favourite all time herb. Lavender is the ‘be all’ plant – she is protector, manifester and healer. Lavender is mother goddess in plant form. Your intention is her intention.
• One handful of rose petals or a splash of rose water. As we have seen roses are love in a bud. Add some for the gentle blossoming of your abilities and the soothing acceptance of all you can be.
• One tablespoon of salt. Salt protects and cleanses all negativity. It heals the aura and will make it easier to change your vibration. After all – if you travel light you can hold more light!
• One sage leaf. To help you uncover and understand the symbolic meanings of whatever visions you experience during your development phase.

Before you climb into your bath, hold the intention of gaining great foresight. Simply state clearly that you are willing to – ‘hear, see, speak and be the truth behind the illusion’ now you are ready to delve into the waters of your subconscious and the collective consciousness. Enjoy your journeying and let us know what you discover – especially if it’s lotto numbers!
