Tea leaf reading or teomancy ( reading of coffee grounds is called cafeomancey) has been around for centuries. When reading tea leaves you are meant to go beyond the symbol in the cup, it is necessary delve more deeply into your psyche. Tea leaf reading can help you to tune into and expand your intuition and your psychic ability, although anyone can learn the art of tea leaf reading without having psychic ability, just by learning the symbols and committing them to memory. The interpretation of the symbols is the seekers quest to understand themselves, the simple act of sitting down, making a pot of tea, drinking the tea and then focusing on the symbols is meditative.
Reiki healing is based on the premise that energy flows through us, and those who use the reiki hands on healing technique can channel this energy and project it into someone through the laying on of their hands. Reiki is the tapping of a higher power, and those able to do it are spiritually guided. When someone is giving a reiki healing session they are healing the whole person, the one being healed benefits physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. When you have a Reiki treatment you will feel a sense of wellbeing and a sense of calm will wash over you. The best way to approach reiki, either as a healer or as a patient, is to be non logical.

The term fairy can be used to describe many types of magical creatures. Most people relate the word fairy to the more ethereal image, the classic fairy with wings and flowing hair.

Historically meditation was only used in the East, but over the last century it has been embraced by the West. Shamans practiced mind consciousness which allowed them to enter into an altered state of awareness, they felt wisdom could be gained from deep meditation and they believed they journeyed to the spirit world. Shamans often meditated to bring about an altered state of awareness before any hands on healing was conducted. Many of them used a mantra to aid concentration, a mantra was thought to protect the mind, a mantra in essence is a sound repeated, a word such as Om is spoken over and over until the sound resonates all around. The mantra helps to stabilise the mind and can actually be a precursor to meditation or be used while you sit, as a meditation. You close your eyes, regulate your breathing and repeat the word over and over, I mention Om because it is used universally.
