CASSANDRA EASON'S FAQs ANSWERED
Often questions I receive by email are about subjects of interest to many people. Therefore, I have included a selection of the most popular questions, so check through before writing as your answer may already be here. I will add to this FAQ as new topics arise:
Also general questions........
We all possess psychic powers but as we get older logic gets in the way and we no longer trust these natural instincts. However it is possible to reawaken psychic powers and you may find you can develop your psychic abilities to a level where you can use them to help others or even some day work professionally.
There are many books that will teach you basic techniques that you can find on Amazon if you enter psychic development on the Amazon site browser. I have written a book called Becoming Clairvoyant with Piatkus books that is a step by step guide to a huge variety of different methods from total beginner to professionals who want to expand their range of skills.
Whether or not you decide to read about psychic powers, buy a pack of Tarot cards, choosing ones where all the cards have a picture and not just numbers. The Rider Waite pack is a good example and is available worldwide. Do not worry about card meanings though you can find these in books including my Clairvoyant book.
Rather pick a card from the shuffled face down pack every morning and look at the picture and see what it is saying to you. Note down the meaning as it appears to you. When you feel ready as well as picking a daily card, one evening choose three cards from the shuffled face down pack and again rely entirely on what each picture says to you and any words or feelings that come to you as you look at each card. See what they suggest about your question when the information you have gained is put together.
Again keep a note of these meanings. You may find that the same card or cards appear time and time again and so have an important message for you. If you check conventional meanings later in a book or on line you will be surprised how accurate your interpretations were.
If you want to progress further buy yourself a small clear quartz crystal sphere, one with cracks and marks inside as you can use these markings to guide your physical eye. Hold the crystal up to natural light or candle light and allow the cracks to form a shape, an animal, a bird, a tree or a person or even a scene.
Look at the image and see what it makes you feel and any words you hear. As you look closely you may notice or sense for example the bird in the crystal is in a cage and the door is open. Ask yourself why does the bird not leave the cage? Is it afraid, is it wounded or does it prefer life in the cage as safer than having to fend for itself? You will almost always find the image answers a question in your life and you may identify the bird as yourself or someone close to you.
When you are confident ask a question and then identify three crystal ball images, the first representing what is moving out of your life, the second hidden aspects and unacknowledged influences and the third what is coming into your life. Keep a list of symbols and what they mean to you. The more you practice the more your psychic powers will increase and you can try out different methods until psychic thoughts are as frequent as logical ones
Every home even a new one or an apartment has a spirit who is the guardian of the home and protects the dwelling and those who live in the house. It is often an old man or woman, seen by children or animals, who are naturally very open to psychic phenomena. It could be your children are picking up your fears, so explain that what they are seeing is an impression or moving picture of someone who once lived in the house if it is old or who once farmed the land or had a former dwelling on the same piece of land perhaps centuries earlier.
When you are alone, sit quietly in the room the presence seems most active. Light a white candle and welcome the guardian and ask that he or she will not show themselves to your children as the children are frightened. Thank the guardian for protecting your home and in future be sure to inform the guardian if you are going to carry out any decorating and renovations. For now blow out the candle and say, Go in peace or remain with blessings.
That usually does the trick. But if you are still experiencing problems do not be afraid. A spirit can do you no physical harm, though they can be very noisy and if you have a very restless spirit, then sometimes their energies can cause breakages.
In this case take a bowl of sparkling mineral water. Many bottled waters come from an old well or spring with healing properties such as the French Vichy water or English Buxton or Malvern water. To the water add three pinches of ordinary salt and stir three times clockwise with a silver knife such as a paper knife. Say, May only goodness and light remain in this place.
Relight the candle in the room where there is most activity and holding the bowl over the candle flame repeating three times, May only goodness and light remain in this place.
Now beginning near the door of the room, sprinkle water droplets round the edges of the floor and window ledges, saying, Friend depart in peace and find those who are waiting for you. Go to the light and find happiness.
When you have finished, open the window of the room for a few moments and repeat go to the light. Hold the candle near to the open window and if it does not go out naturally, blow in out.
Relight the candle in the next room and repeat the ritual precisely until you have visited every room. Finally go to your front door and tip any remaining water away outside and shutting the door blow out the candle and say So shall there be peace in this place
There is someone for each of us who can make us happy. But if you have experienced bad relationships you lose confidence and so your aura energy field closes and so even if we dress up and go to the right places you are giving off signals that you are not ready to meet anyone. You can use a simple spell to make your energy field more visible and to radiate love me vibes and to attract to you like a magnet the person who will truly make you happy.
Light a green candle for love on Friday the best day for love spells and in front of it place your favourite piece of jewellery.
Now light a rose or lavender incense stick from the candle and holding the incense stick like a pen write in the air with smoke over the jewellery, True love come to me, wherever you may be and make me happy as long as the sun shines in the sky and the waters of the earth flow which is forever.
Blow out the candle and leave the incense to burn through. Wear the jewellery whenever you go somewhere you might meet someone new or talk online on a dating site. You can repeat the spell weekly with the same candle and jewellery.
Twelve signs that indicate you may have you lived before:
If these signs are more than imagination, the experience will feel quite natural and compelling and may recur many times. Such insights are often momentary, remarkably ordinary and have a sense of certainty and reality that distinguishes them from fantasy. If you experience more than five of these then it is likely that you will when you visit old places or touch old objects easily recall one or more of your own past worlds-

Witchcraft is actually remarkably moral and works for the good of others and to bring healing and peace to others.
There is no doubt conventional religion does frown on Witchcraft, in spite of increasing acceptance of the Goddess in Christianity and Shekinah in Judaism. Of course we know that Christian festivals were grafted on to pre Christian celebrations. We also are aware that almost every healing ancient well, dedicated once to the Mother Goddess under her many names, was Christanised and acquired a brand new Christian miracle to explain the apparent sudden appearance of water that had in fact been used for healing for hundreds or even thousands of years.
In many ways Witchcraft is more morally accountable than Christianity because you canít just confess and be absolved, but must carry and where possible put right your bad deeds and words in this lifetime(and some believe in subsequent lifetimes).
I have no problem reconciling witchcraft with my being a Quaker, a faith that believes there is good or God/the Goddess.
Personally I think that if a rule in a religion is not right for you and you are living as a good witch then of course you can be a good Christian or belong to any religion as well. Sadly it may not be possible to tell the local Christian organization of your magical activities, but whatever or whoever you call you God or Goddess all are the same source of goodness and light. . .
The most important rule of witchcraft is:
Rule 1: If it harms no one, do what you will
What is Harm?
This rule is the hardest to keep A magical practitioner cannot carry out spells for personal advantage or on behalf of others if that spell will affect another person adversely, whether or not that individual is considered at fault.
So this to me means you canít curse or hex anyone even if they are doing wrong to the vulnerable or hurting your family (there are other legitimate magical means such binding and banishing that can be structured to avoid harming the perpetrator of malice while presenting the harmful effects of his or her actions or words ).
Harming none is a sound ecological principle
This law also prohibits any human or animal ritual sacrifices. I personally believe that any form of blood letting is not helpful in ceremonies and I do not use human blood or body fluids Above all it is important and totally possible to be a witch and not to harm your own private standards even if others tell you that you are fluffy or not a real witch.
This is the other side of the coin. Any genuine practitioner would not be asking to meet someone as young as you alone and certainly not asking you to stay overnight or to keep the meeting a secret. Regrettably witchcraft is sometimes used as a front for less desirable people to hide behind and you should never be asked to do anything you would not like your mother or best friend to know about.
I would advise you to steer clear of this person, cut all contact and in this case tell someone you can trust as this definitely rings alarm bells. You have plenty of time ahead to learn magick and because at thirteen you are so psychically sensitive, it is important you get plenty of earthly input in your life. By all means find out about magick and spell casting. Kate West and I write very sensible safe magick books and you can get these from libraries in many countries to save buying them.
I would focus at first on learning natural magick involving trees, herbs, flowers, crystals, the moon and healing and discover about angels so you feel safe as your natural psychic gifts unfold. An organisation like the Children of Artemis www.witchcraft.org is based near London and has very good introductory events in different places. Try also the Pagan Federation www.paganfed.org who have international connections and advertise events where there are reputable seasonal celebrations and you can explore different kinds of spirituality. In the Southern hemisphere Spheres magazine www.spiritguide.com.au, Spellcraft www.spellcraft.com.au or Rainbow News in New Zealand www.rainbownews.co.nz are all reputable journals that will guide you to genuine spiritual sources.
Tarot cards are cards, just pictures on pieces of paper and have no power in themselves. Bad movies whip up hype about three cards, the Death card, the Devil and the Tower. The appearance of the Death card never in real life means someone is going to die. Rather it is a very positive card, saying that you are coming to the end of a natural phase and that is necessary to move on when you are ready for a new phase and new growth, just as winter must end if spring is to come.
Indeed in some Celtic packs the Death card shows the old grandmother of winter who will give birth to the maiden of spring. The Devil card is very much a Christian invention and in some packs is shown instead as the powerful antlered or horned pre Christian Animal God who released the animals to the hunters. We all have negative feelings and they are part of us and essential if we are to change and to stand up for what is right and important. The Devil card may appear at a time when you are smiling till your mouth aches but there is something you need to say and do in a strong but non destructive way.
The only harm in the Devil is if we deny we feel angry or guilty at being treated badly or try to push our negative feelings on to someone else and blame them for our unhappiness or suppress everything till we do yell, cry and put ourselves in the wrong.
As for the Tower that is the tower of freedom from the things that have been restricting us from doing what we want or maybe we have been waiting like the princess in the fairy tales for someone to rescue us instead of climbing out of the tower ourselves or knocking it down .
There are no bad cards in the Tarot and even those that show obstacles, for example the nine of swords, a woman with her eyes closed in bed, with swords on the wall behind her, say that the swords are just in her nightmare. The card says the situation is not as bad as she fears or has nightmares about. Indeed she could use the power and logic of swords to bring change to fight through and win.
Nor are the cards telling you what will happen, only showing you possible paths ahead and offer usually alternatives so you get to choose and to decide when to put your feet on the road towards those possibilities. After all if you have a lovely Prince of Cups love card turn up regularly in your reading, if you are staying in every night eating potato chips, it is unlikely your Prince will knock at the door. The card is saying even if you have been hurt in the past, you need to get back slowly into life and open yourself to the possibility of god love so that you are receptive. Maybe this means noticing the ordinary looking but kind guy in the next office who always brings you cappuccino when you work late.
Ill wishing comes in many forms and the majority from from spiteful neighbours, colleagues, love rivals and even so called friends and relatives. It is unlikely this person has really cursed you though they may have been spiteful or jealous which releases negative energies. Curses cannot be activated unless accepted so you can send it back or indeed any bad feelings. The threefold law of magick says that what you send out you get back three times as powerfully. Therefore regardless of whether this is a real curse and the person who told you is being negative in trying to stir up trouble, sit at your desk and raise the hand you write with so your hand is vertical fingers together and the palm facing outwards. Push your hand forward into the air at face height and say, I return any negativity, ill wishing or curses to where they came with blessings, Send them not again.
If others are present say the words in your mind. Keep a round dark crystal such as a smoky quartz or an obsidian or jet on your desk or even a round black stone to absorb and neutralize any future negativity flying your way. Wash the crystal or stone once a week and leave it to dry
The answer is it may be all three. We all have a guardian angel who is with us throughout our lives and you may experience this presence as a shimmer of light or a sense of being hugged when you are most alone. In addition we all have spirit guides who may be a deceased grandmother who care for us in life, a wise ancestor or a teacher form one of the older cultures. Our guardian angel and guides assist us at times when we are in need, sometimes by sending the right help in human form or some resources we need that arrive on cue from an unexpected source. But we can learn to see and talk with them if we step back from the busy world and sit quietly by candlelight- I do have an on line course to teach you how to communicate with angels and am preparing one on spirit guides. The following is an easy method to discover more about your spirit guide or guardian angel.
In the modern world people are trying for a baby later and may have used artificial contraception for a long period, so taking longer for the womanís body to adjust. However when conception does not occur the couple can panic and anxiety sets in so blocking conception. It has been shown scientifically that spontaneity and pleasure aid conception and if you are worrying about ovulation charts then the joy disappears. The full moon is traditionally associated with conception and spells involving the moon have for hundreds of years helped women to get in touch with their natural menstrual cycles. The following spell has also had some success even where a couple needs medical intervention. You may need to carry it out for several months.
Put a tiny moonstone in half an egg shell on the bedroom window ledge indoors from the new to full moon and make love whenever you wish if medically safe. Prick the moonstone with a silver pin on the night of the full moon and make love. In the morning put the pin inside the egg shell. Cover the egg and pin with the other half of the shell, wrap it in a silk scarf in a drawer to incubate for the rest of the moon cycle. Repeat on the next crescent moon using a fresh egg shell. Bury the old shell and wash the moonstone under running water.
Invisible friends are very common but many parents do not talk about them for fear of people thinking their children are odd and so the secret goes on. I have come across enough examples of invisible friends that have information the child could not possibly know to be convinced they are objectively real and it may be they are the form taken by a childís guardian angel. My Psychic Power of Children book with Foulsham\Quantum has been in print and updated for twenty years and childrenís psychic experiences are the most common ones I receive.
Coping with a childís invisible friend
Do not be spooked by a childís invisible friend or fear they are hearing voices. Invisible friends are as you have seen in this chapter very common and quite normal.
Go along with the child when you are asked to set an extra place etc but do not let the presence of an invisible friend disrupt your routine nor allow a child to get away with bad behaviour.
Explain that invisible friends like all family members have to keep house rules and that your child is not allowed to eat an invisible friendís sweet ration or take up seats when earthly family members need them.
Make sure your child has plenty of human companionship with children their own age and that there are plenty of family activities.
If you suspect the invisible friend is a little spirit child do not be afraid. The innocence of children gives them inbuilt protection against harm. There is no way your child will be possessed (that only happens in very bad films that are based entirely on fiction).
Most invisible friends do fade away when the child attends school if they are not made into a big deal or dark secret
Do document your childís` experiences as details may fade and they are part of the family heritage.
If you did have an invisible friend yourself tell your child about it like any other childhood memories you share.
When a child is frightened by an invisible friend
Do not laugh at the child or let anyone else tease him or her about what is a real fear.
An unsympathetic approach will cause the child to keep other fears to themselves and thus feel isolated.
Do not worry your child is odd, but focus on making the child feel more powerful and in control.
Ask your child to help you to devise strategies you can carry out together to send the foe away and be prepared to repeat them until the child is happy.
Check on earthly tensions, especially bullying by a sibling or at early school or frequent arguments between parents.
When someone dies and we do not have the chance to say goodbye then our intense grief can block communication. I have come across hundreds of examples of family members returning after death and it seems they retain their essential personality and sense of humour. Enough of these experiences can be verified to convince me that love never dies. Smelling a loved oneís perfume is one of the most common forms of communication after death and the perfume will appear when there are no flowers or fragrance in the room. This is your motherís way of reassuring you that she is fine and is with you still. The following ritual may be helpful to initiate connection so your mother can reassure you herself.
If you still donít dream of the relative during the night you may nevertheless wake with a sense of peace and of being loved and may catch a glimpse of her like a fleeting light beam as you open your eyes.
If you didnít dream you will hopefully be given a sign during the following days, maybe her favourite tune being played on the radio just as you instinctively change channels, curtains billowing up when the window is closed, a dancing light with no obvious source in a room or their favourite flower blooming in an unexpected place or season.
If not you arenít doing anything wrong, it may just take longer but get there you will.
Repeat the exercise each week or two but no more frequently until you do receive a dream or further signs. Be patient. A lifetime of love may take months to get back in tune but when you do it will be doubly rewarding because of your efforts.
Do not be afraid of psychic powers for they are natural and normal. But if you are not ready to develop and use them or you do not want to know things in advance, try this.
Before sleep and whenever you feel spooked, put a little rose or lavender hand or body lotion on your index finger of the hand you write with or some rose or lavender fragrance (if you have a spray you can spray a tiny bit in an egg cup or on to your finger).
Rub the fragrance in anti clockwise circles in the centre of your brow between and above your eyes where your psychic Third Eye is that receives psychic impressions, Say as you do so, three times, I close the entrance to my spirit against anything that may frighten or worry me. I ask the protection of my angels and my guides.
No. If you have one, you can choose to use it if you like. If you do not have one, you do not need to sign up for one.
