Call Back Your Power

Working full time as a reader (or in any helping profession, really) can occasionally leave you feeling energetically drained. I say “occasionally” because experienced mediums and readers will also remind you that if you are “in the power” when you are working (to use spiritualist parlance), then a reading should in fact leave you feeling energised. That’s because when you are in the power you are not using your personal energy. You are not doing the work; it is being done through you. You can tell that you are in the power when you experience the “medium’s high”; that exhilarating rush that comes along with information from the Other Side.

Occasionally it doesn’t work that way. Usually it’s when you are trying too hard or otherwise getting in the way of the process somehow. Resultantly you are using personal energy. This can leave you feeling drained and if sustained over many readings can eventually lead to illness.

Even if you do not read for a living you may have noticed that encounters with certain individuals or places leave you feeling drained...

What you can do about it:

Here is a magical technique I have developed to use on the spot when I notice that this kind of energetic drain has happened. It only requires a minute or two and the technique effectively recalls all lost energy back to you. For the purposes of this technique we will imagine that the energy you have lost takes the form of ‘particles’. From this perspective all expended ‘particles’ of personal energy remain connected to you wherever it may have temporarily transferred. As such you have the power to command these particles to return to you in an instant. You can do so using what I am going to call the Power Recall Sigil. For readers who do not know what a sigil is; it’s a magical symbol that patterns your magical intent. In this case the intent is that the energy you have lost returns to you immediately. Think of it as your energetic royal seal.

I have requested and received the sigil above for readers to use, should they choose to. Alternatively, request a sigil from your own spirit helpers for this purpose.

The technique:

  1. As soon as you notice that you feel drained; take a moment, close your eyes and remind yourself of the sovereignty that you hold over your life force. 
  2. Slowly exhale bringing the Power Recall Sigil onto your mental screen. You can trace it in the air in front of you if that helps.
  3. Continue gently exhaling while visualising the sigil vividly. Empty your lungs. Do not inhale yet. Instead, hold it and let the desire for the next breath build. Let the sigil glow brighter with intensity. See all particles of lost energy rushing back with force into the sigil. Your need for air acts like a magnet, pulling the power back into the symbol. Hold it just a little longer than is comfortable, letting the sigil grow bright as a star… 
  4. Deeply inhale the sigil letting all the energy rush back into your system. I like to see it going down into my solar plexus. Let it circulate freely again as your breathing normalises. You should feel a pleasant glow as your power returns.


  1. Thank you! Worked good for me now, drained after sequential (and somewhat tense) I-Ching readings.

  2. I pleased that this worked for you, Iago. In my experience it becomes even more effective with practice.

  3. Thank you! This really helped me after tabling at a convention this weekend.
