Frequently Asked Questions at Green Witch Creations
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PSYCHIC AND A MEDIUM?
Psychics tune into the energy of people or objects by feeling or sensing elements of their past, present and future. Simply put, psychics rely on their basic sense of intuition and psychic ability to gather information for the person being read.
Mediums take it a step further. A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. This means mediums rely on the presence of non-physical energy outside of themselves for the information relevant to the person being read.
WHAT IF I CANT BE HYPNOTIZED?
Not only can everyone be hypnotized, but we experiences hypnosis on a daily basis. We are hypnotized while driving our cars, listening to music, watching tv, reading a book, and so on. It is a natural state that you enter at least twice a day, while waking up and while falling asleep. Everyone experiences altered states of consciousness regularly, but hypnosis is a deep altered state of trance that allows us to go into our subconscious minds. Right brained people are more susceptible to hypnosis. Left brained individuals can get there if they allow themselves to be free of their analytical thinking minds.
WHAT IF I LOSE CONTROL IN HYPNOSIS?
This is a Hollywood myth. You always have control, and you can always hear what's going on. Hypnosis is nothing but a state of relaxed deep focus. If at any time you are in trance and you wish to be fully awake, you can just count to yourself "1 - 2- 3" and open your eyes. You subconscious mind will not be open to any suggestions that go against your values or beliefs.
WHAT IS SELF-HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a powerful life skill for the modern person. There is a great deal of stress to be handled in today's work environment, schools, and society in general. Self-hypnosis, at the most basic level, is wonderful for de-stressing, calming, and restoring a healthful energy to your body. It gives a sense of control and connection to your mind and body that supports confidence and success.
After becoming more skilled in self-hypnosis, you'll find that it can help you maintain motivation and peak performance, as well as health and vigor. It can help you make clear decisions. It is incredibly powerful to be able to discover what your subconscious beliefs and patterns are and be able to change them at will. You can literally design your life and cope with almost any problem. Remain more calm and centered in day to day life. You can design your patterns and beliefs to propel you to your highest goals and to your vision of success.
WHAT IS A GREEN WITCH?
A green witch is someone who works with the elements, the local land spirits, and all things green. The green witch is able to harness the energy of the natural sources around her by developing a close connection with local plants, trees, and wildlife as well as with the earth itself. Green witches know much about the identities, myths and the care of plant-life and seek to preserve it. They attempt to connect with the earthen world through earth based spirituality. They acknowledge magic and use it in tune with natural forces to accomplish a goal. The pentacle represents the 4 elements of nature; earth, air, wind, fire, and water, with spirit being on top and balance with the elements.
WHAT IS A PENTACLE/PENTAGRAM?
The Pentacle is a symbol of a star encased in a circle. Always with 5 points (one pointing upward), each has its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other four points all represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. The pentacle is a symbol that protects against evil spirits. The pentacle IS NOT A SATANIC SYMBOL (only when the star is upside down and 2 points are at the top). The pentacle is a sacred symbol. This star has been revered for many ages and in many cultures as a symbol of the unity of all things and the essence of the life force. The pentacle is the symbol of the goddess Kore, known as the “star of knowledge.” The Pythagoreans revered this symbol as the pentalpha, the letter A (called the “birth letter”) interlaced five times. It is a beautiful, positive symbol of our spiritual path and that of our ancestors, the Wiccans. In essence, the pentacle means life.
