While looking into my scrying mirror I got a view of the back of my head. I was looking down on myself performing the ritual. I asked Raphael if that was like his way of saying that he was watching over me. It wasn't…it was just something weird that happened to me. I do take that as a sign that I am getting better at scrying.
I had the most powerful experience with chakra work today. I owe it to all the guided meditations that I listen to before I head off to work, they have helped me to get used to my chakras. Today it was like a flood of power and ecstasy rushed up my body as I raised the energy and spiraled it around each chakra and out past the 7th chakra. It has been about 20 mins. after the ritual and I still feel a buzz.
Raphael let me know that I am in the the middle of a metamorphosis, and in the coming weeks I will see things that need to be cut from my life. He told me that if I were to see the things that I would have to cut out of my life now I would turn away from magick all together, but if I keep up the exercises that Raphael taught me they would seem like no big deal when the time comes.
