This is dark stuff, not kindness

Certain prayers, healing energy and helpful tools like the pendulum can harm someone. It's not something I've come across in books but from my own personal experience, I feel like posting about what I've discovered. 

Pendulums are keys to Pandora's Box  

Most stuff I've come across in books and magazines about pendulums is that it's "only a tool". It locates water, ley lines and answers. It has been said to connect people to their higher selves and make people feel comforted. Most people I know of have one. I did have one, made of silver and crystal. Then it was destroyed AFTER I used it. Why? Because I was simply following instructions in the booklet it came with, and soon opened a door that I was unaware of. I experienced a series of very nasty entities that appeared right after using the pendulum. I was in contact with the dead, that first imitated dead relatives. These things became unfriendly and dangerous. A friend took away that pendulum and broke it. Nothing and no one advised me to shield myself from using that. A pendulum is exactly the same as a Ouija board. I posted about this online on a message forum a couple of years ago, to warn people using pendulums. That was in reply to someone saying they too were getting weird feedback after using a pendulum. The moderators and admin refused to believe me, saying I was "scaring people". In their opinion, pendulums are tools of "light". An article in a magazine written by a "wise" person, talking about pendulums as if they are friendly and helpful in spiritual development. No warning sticker. There is no warning against this piece of equipment. Pendulums are keys that unlock doors bringing in sinister entities.    

The cost of "healing"thoughts

This is well-meaning and often done by more than one person, who cares about another. What they're sending, depends on how they're doing it. For instance, a person who's sick or unhappy may get a reaction from loads of people making prayers, healing energy or "get well" thoughts to them. It's often said that it works. However it doesn't do what it's meant to do. These "prayers" and healing energies, are removing healthy energies from another person, often themselves who are sending it. People who've sent a lot of healing to somebody else often becomes poorly at any time. Coincidence? I don't know. I've sent healing to people myself over the years, including to a friend in America who had cancer. He recovered very well. Soon after that I had several illnesses, pneumonia and bronchitis, now cancer. My immunity was down 99%. I simply willed it away to another.  If you send healing energy to a person, always make sure you proceed to heal yourself afterwards, for giving away your spiritual and physical immunity strength. It's like donating all of your vital organs whilst you're alive, it will guarantee you ill health and death. Although sending healing is a nice gesture, it has a price to pay (your health), and healing prayers can backfire upon those sending it out.  

Dangers of sending out "healing" entities

Another thing that people do out of compassion for another going through a tough time. They send them entities! In the past, someone sent me a "healing angel" without my permission, and although she meant well, such an act was dangerous and this resulted in me getting nightmares. Another sent me a "healing water deity" but he didn't know its name when I asked who it was. He didn't really know wtf he was doing playing with magic like that. It depends on the person sending a "healing being", what that particular being is and what it could mean for the target (person who receives it), and the receiver's personality and beliefs also. How do you know it's a healing spirit?  It could be something else. How do you know that this healer was sent to that person? Sending it to someone leaves that person in a gullible position, they've got a channel opened by you the "healer" so any darker thing can enter. When someone you know is sick, shield them with protective energy using iron sources (stones, objects, talismans, pendants). Guard them against mass prayer, healing and angelic stuff sent by others. Bounce off mass healing prayers and "healing" spirits for this is unwelcome baggage and tainted with paranormal activity. Don't use "power of prayer" magic. Send flowers, cards and physical hugs.

Before anyone does it... 

Ask the person's permission first if they would like to receive healing in the way of generated thoughts, candle magic or wishes. Ask them if it's okay to send them a being of whatever. If the person agrees, make sure you shield yourself. Then ask permission of the earth to send healing instead. Usually, this is granted but you have to pay, depending on how much healing you want sent. Picture that person getting healing from the earth, medicines and plants, and not from you or some big spirit, or angelic form. Thank the earth for proving healing but expect to pay your fee, and it could be a bump along the way.

Golden Girl Project - Yang Guifei

So far I've been focusing on The Four Beauties of ancient China in this "Golden Girl Project" series. I've done posts on Diao Chan and Xi Shi. I have two more of those Four Beauties to post about. This third post on that subject will be on the legendary Yang Guifei.

Yang Guifei lived during the Tang dynasty. Her life was during the years 719 and 756. A princess and nun whose lovely "face put flowers to shame".

Her family came from a background of wealthy officials to the Tang Emperor. They were from a place called Shu Prefecture, which is now Chengdu, Sichuan. Yang Guifei was married off to a prince, son of emperor Xuanzong. The emperor wanted to make her his mistress but to avoid any backlash, sent her away to become a Taoist nun. Then the emperor gave his son another wife, and made Yang Guifei his consort. 

It's said that over 700 people were made to sew garments for Yang. Her favourite fruit was lychee, or genus of soapberry. This was only found in south Asia and the emperor had employed men with horses to deliver the fruits to Yang. She was allowed use of the Huaquing Pool (hot spring).

This poem called "Song of Everlasting Regret"by Bai Juyi covers it:

On a cold spring day, he bestowed upon her the honor of bathing with him at the Huaqing pools,
According to legend, this is the pool that was used by Yang Guifei and the emperor.
The waters of the hot springs were smooth, and washed over her pale white skin.
The palace maids helped her to leave the pool, because she was too delicate and lacked strength.
This was when she began to receive the emperor's advances.

There is a voluptuous statue of Yang Guifei standing there, immortalising her beauty in stone at this location today. Figure of Yang Guifei's statue

She's almost a fairytale like princess to modern kids in China and Japan. In Japan she's called Yokihi. The Japanese novel "The Tale of Genji" bases the story on Yang Guifei. Many operas and plays are performed of Yang's life and death.  

Sadly the possession of this woman and obsession even by the emperor caused him to forget his duties, making the society deteriorate. Many blamed Yang Guifei for the collapse of the once glittering realm, causing anger. She was executed by strangling to death in a temple. The Tang dynasty was never the same again.

Shades of Purple

Autumn is traditionally in colours of reds and oranges. Sometimes brown, gold and yellowish red. Autumn can also be defined as purple. The Ash tree turns purple in autumn. Beech trees also have purple leaves. Many flowers that bloom in autumn are purple. Berries that appear are purple, or reddish purple and purple black. The evening sky can turn a bright purple in autumn. Friends and stylists dye their hair burgundy (a deep reddish purple). Jacaranda is a pretty purple tree found growing in the southern equator.

Purple is also my favourite colour.

In colour psychology, purple is about spirituality and imagination.

Taken from Empower Yourself":

"In the meaning of colors, purple and violet represent the future, the imagination and dreams, while spiritually calming the emotions. They inspire and enhance psychic ability and spiritual enlightenment, while, at the same time, keeping us grounded.

From a color psychology perspective, purple and violet promote harmony of the mind and the emotions, contributing to mental balance and stability, peace of mind, a link between the spiritual and the physical worlds, between thought and activity. Violet and purple support the practice of meditation.

The color purple is specifically associated with royalty and the nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance. 

Purple has power. It has a richness and quality to it that demands respect. Purple is ambitious and self-assured, the leader.

Too much of the color purple can promote or aggravate depression in some. It is one color that should be used extremely carefully and in small amounts by those who are vulnerable to these depressed states."
