As I was spiraling energy up through and by my chakras I gazed into my scrying mirror. I thought I might get a cool visionary effect. Instead I found it to hard to concentrate on moving the energy in me while trying to scry. I found that I could not do both at the same time. Raphael seemed to find this amusing and a thought popped into my mind that harkened back to my parent's Mormon roots. "It is not requisite for man to run faster than ne has strength." Basically nice try kid, but you are not there yet. Well, I will keep up with it.
Though the chakra work is coming along nicely (I think so anyways) I am not only noticing things that are blocking my progress, but as I work on my chakras I am finding that I have to face them. Even outside of the ritual, issues that have been holding me back in life pop up and I have to take care of them. I feel like I am being forced to Spring Clean my life.
I did get a few words of encouragement from the Archangel, as he stood behind my altar. Glad to have him near while I work on myself.
