“A Stick, A Stone, and Belief”

I am reading a book about the sacred sites of England and the tourist shops surrounding them.   New Age shops stand in the shadow of standing stones now.   Crystals of every color, pendulums of every stone, and divination tools beckon from every shop window.

Not just England, here in the States, Salem has become a Mecca for those who wish to buy divination abilities.

My own corner of the world’s living space, Gettysburg, has metaphysical shops and ghost tracking equipment shops as well.   EMF meters, divining rods, ghost boxes…….all invite the buyer to hold and possess their power and obtain psychic skills.

But power isn’t on the shelf, the power is in all of us.   It comes from within.   Ancient people knew it.   They used a stick for dowsing, stones as runes, water for scrying.  All the power is within us and around us in nature.   Yes, crystals amplify that power or energy; tools give us added confidence that possession of the unknown can be ours.  But it is our own source of power and belief that guides or blocks these tools.   As it is our own source of power and belief that guides or blocks our paths in life.

Studying metaphysics is learning that you are the tool, you are the energy, you are the source.   It is then that you make the first step out into the world of the unknown.
