Energy Fields

When I first began learning about Wicca and Paganism, the first thing that struck me was the acceptance of energy fields, and how they not only influence our lives, but our bodies as well. Everything has either a projective or receptive energies and how you interact with them can influence your day to day life. Other associations would be dark-light, summer-winter, day-night. 

These energies come in contact and flow through your body. Too much of one creates an imbalance that can represent itself in a physical manifestation. Irritability, aggressiveness, headaches and ulcers could be the result of an excess of projective energy within the body, while moodiness, depression, nightmares and hypochondria, could be linked to an excess of receptive energy.

The best way I’ve found to keep these two energies in balance is by wearing jewellery made of gold and silver. Gold is projective, sliver is receptive. I read somewhere that people who are right-handed (like myself) should wear receptive jewellery on the right side, and projective on their left, the opposite for those who are left-handed.  At Christmas I bought myself a pair of gold sleepers (earrings) and immediately felt an imbalance in the form of dizziness. Confused I checked over my body and found I had more gold on that silver, so I put on a silver necklace and charm (the charm has a crystal attached to it), and after a few minutes, I felt regular again. It’s interesting to note that of the seven rings I wear, five have stones, and these stones are almost an even mixture of receptive and projective energies.

Stones (not just gem) also hold these energies and they are the best way to tap into this power. I keep an amethyst with my tarot cards, a rose quartz in my bathroom, and wear an obsidian ring for grounding.

The best book I’ve come across is CRYSTAL, JEM AND METAL MAGIC by Scott Cunningham. There is an incredible data of stones, gems, crystals and metals, their powers, associated deities and a wealth of other important information that helps the user decide what stone is best for them.
