Calamities have always happened throughout time, epidemics, wars, famine threats of all sorts. People have always been frightened of the future. But I know one thing for sure, the more you worry the more you attract events relevant to that fear. Instead of worrying and imagining a future full of undesirable things, people should start to feel into the deliciousness of the present moment , joy is what creates a blissful future. It is possible though to observe the not so positive things that happens around you, but then you have to learn how to stay out of the drama, not give into fear. You have to be able to observe without emotions, as it is the emotions that attracts what is vibrating at the same energy level. Arisen your energies with daily meditation and positive thinking, gratitude and forgiveness as well as generosity with yourself as well as with anybody else, we all know that we tend to be harder on ourselves than on the people around us. Have faith, only the present exists.

For your prayer to be fully effective, for it to lift up your mind and your soul, it must be charged with emotion. The invocation to your angels will give results if you can tune into their vibratory wavelength, if your prayer springs forth spontaneously from your heart, from a powerful desire for fusion and quasi-amorous symbiosis. Any positive and well-targeted invocation or prayer will always arrive at its destination and trigger a response wave of help to suit the need concerned.
To feel the presence of the Angels, you absolutely must achieve a state of relaxation « let go » both physically and mentally. Releasing your tension is vital. The best way of relaxing is by performing breathing exercises. Your breath linked you to the Universe. Your breath represents your contact with life.
Breathe deeply, holding this positive energy for a moment before exhaling the air, along with all your tension. You are now ready to contact your Guardian Angel.

Belief in the existence of guardian angels, each of us having an ally protector charged with watching over us in life, is documented in the most ancient Christian texts.
Psalm 91 – « There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. . They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash they foot against a stone. »
Psalm 34 – « The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. »
Exodus – « I will send an Angel before thee, to keep you safe along your way. »
Guardian angels are generally seen as benevolent friends, celestial brothers, confidantes, advisors and intercessors. Is it not the case that many highly trustworthy people claim to have been saved through the providential intervention of angels?

Fumigations are also very useful to complement your occult rituals or to help you in certain situations in your day-to-day existence.
Each planetary incense type creates and maintains its own particular atmosphere, conducive to bringing about a whole series of events corresponding to your astrological family.
For example, for all events concerning your financial success, governed by the planet Mercury, you need to burn incense tears while you’re working or, more simply, in the room where the business is operating.
Alternatively, if you want to cast a spell using figurines, or perform any other magic concerning your love life, you can burn Incense of Bethlehem while you’re making the figures, as this corresponds to Venus, which is the planet that presides over affairs of the heart.
Or, simpler still, when you want to create an atmosphere conducive to revising for an exam or studying a difficult file, use tears of incense corresponding to Mercury, adding the indicated perfumes and essences.
This method of fumigation will be even more effective if you add the natural essences and perfumes belonging to the same magic family to the incense.

Undress and take a shower or bath. Once clean, set up a burner with the incense that corresponds to your occult planet, which is the one for the day when you were born (consult the table below).
Burn enough incense to get a good amount of smoke rising up out of the burner.
Stand over the incense burner so that the aromatic smoke curls around you, rather as if you were bathing in smoke.
When there’s a sufficient abundance of smoke, wrap yourself in a white linen or cotton sheet to form a sort of tent that traps the incense smoke inside, completely enveloping you.
Gently flap the sheet to move the smoke and to stop you from suffocating!
Do this for two to three minutes.
You can repeat this smoking once a week, for the first four weeks then once every six weeks thereafter to maintain the effect.
Sunday – Sun: Arabia incense
Monday – Moon: Myrrh incense
Tuesday – Mars: Nazareth incense
Wednesday – Mercury: Incense in tears
Thursday – Jupiter: Benzoin incense
Friday – Venus: Bethlehem incense
Saturday – Saturn: Lebanese incense

Fumigation is a method of purification rituals that rid the body of all the negativity it has accumulated and stored, perhaps from a harmful environment, or malicious intent, jealousy or just a build-up of repeated daily failures.
These fumigations have ancient roots – in shamanism and Hinduism, in traditional magic and sorcery: all civilisations have used water or incense to purify, because we humans are never weaker or more vulnerable to harmful external influences than when our etheric body is charged with negativity. This usually manifests itself as fatigue, sadness, depression, bad choices in response to life’s trials, anxiety or greater susceptibility to illness, etc…
The ritual described below does bear some similarity to the Red Indian ceremony – the Inipi Ceremony – where a dozen people come together in a lodge with a central fire of smouldering stones over which water and sage are thrown. The resulting fumigation bathes the body with its purifying emanations, ridding them of harmful spirits and the effects of wrong deeds, either committed or suffered.
Anyone who takes part in these purification rituals, which were revealed to me in the countryside, will need to give their date of birth, as it is this which governs the choice of incense and determines the right mixture of plants, according to the cosmic vibrations of each.

This is what you call conscience and what psychoanalysts call the superego.
There is a certain level of your psychic structure, a sort of "censor" which has its own criteria of evaluation and puts barriers on your thoughts and actions. It has been built from the rules of society from the time of your birth, those occurring in your family but also those that has been gradually added from your own personal experiences.
The higher self is thus a kind of judge constantly watching you: it inhibits your actions and produces remorse when you trespasses the limits you have set up for yourself. It is, for example, what prevents you from walking naked out in the street, or talking loudly in the cinema, or cut your father when he speaks if it is something that is considered to be rude in your family ...
The higher self can become your guide, but only under certain conditions. First, we must always be aware that you communicate with a part of yourself and not a separate person. The opposite could create a psychological split detrimental to your mental equilibrium. Then you have to be sure that your superego works well in a balanced way, i.e. it is neither too permissive nor too rigid. If you never refer to your conscience and never ask yourself any moral question, or if, on the contrary, you have a tendency to self censorship, it will not be a good, objective and relevant guide.
However, from your higher self's perspective, your psyche will be freed from the shackles of your body and has interesting faculties for your evolution. It is not dependent on space and time. It can, therefore, draw useful information from your past, your present and also from your future, handing you advice and relevant recommendations. If, following the terms set out above, you choose your higher self for guidance, it will offer you solutions, tailored to fit your own personality and thus help you prepare for the future in the most accurate manner.
