A reader asked me recently about using psychic intuitions to develop herbalist formulas. She sent me questions she’d want to ask, and wanted my help formulating them into useful psychic queries.
Herbalism isn’t my field, but I do have a good amount of experience getting psychic and manifesting questions to make sense to the ethereal software. So, I’m using her questions as an example, to show you how I approach the problem.
In this post, I’ll use “psychic” and “manifesting” interchangeably. It’s the same ethereal software, and the same questions, just one (psychic) is always connected to you and always active, while the other (manifesting) only turns on when you specifically contact the software and do the work.
Note: Before you can use psychic intuition for herbalism, you’ll need to develop your psychic intuition. This post assumes you’re familiar with asking questions and receiving answers. Part 2 of my book focuses on that, so I’ll be posting about it a lot soon.
Also, keep in mind that this is my best guess at these problems. I’ve used these techniques on other manifestings with good results, but haven’t tested it on the particular questions in this post.
Is Herb A a good base formula to use for a vision improvement formula (or Herb B, or Herb C, or one not mentioned in these three)?
I replaced the particular names with Herb A because the formula is proprietary. Plus I don’t know what any of the herbs are, anyway. Now, here’s my take on this question:
First, the names will probably be meaningless to the ethereal software. Maybe not, particularly if you can imagine the herb clearly as you say the name, but in general, names and sounds are hard to transmit and easy to get wrong.
Instead, I’d get a small amount of each herb, and ask, “Is the herb I’m holding in my hand a good base for X?” Also, when you say “base for X,” let you mind explore what “base” means, so the ethereal software can understand the concept in your mind and see what it means to you and how exactly you intend to use it. I’d also test expanding the concept: Asking “Would a formula that uses this herb as the first ingredient be effective for X?” (I’m assuming that’s what “base” means.)
Lastly, based on my experience manifesting for words, it seems to have a limited ability to search for options you don’t specifically call out or have in mind. So, after doing the 3 herbs you’re thinking of, I’d ask if there are any other herbs in your house that would be more effective, and go to a store and ask the same thing. That should give it a good way to search. (You could also hold a catalog or go to a website and ask about them, but the point is, make it a concrete list.)
Is it better to use herbs that add to the effects of the base formula or is it better to use herbs that complement and balance the effects of the base formula.
On this one, I’d just avoid the phrasing “is it better”. This causes the ethereal software to evaluate which path that action will put you on, and who knows — failing at this formula might lead to personal growth that leads to something good in the future, which would make it “better” to make a formula that fails. Yes, it really works like this, in my experience. Instead, ask if doing X or Y will “result in a more effective formula for [insert goal here].”
Why wouldn’t you want the manifesting to lead you to fail, if it leads to something better in the future? Because — and again, this is just my personal experience — there are lots of opportunities to change that long-term outcome, particularly if you do more manifesting as you get closer to the time when you’re making those decisions. So, while you might, on average, get better outcomes by failing now, you might wind up even better off if you succeed now, then do more manifesting and succeed again later.
Also, the earlier notes on explaining “base” apply here to “add” and “compliment.”
Which of the following herbs are the right herbs to add to [the herb I get from question 1]: [List of herbs]
I’d approach this the same way as question 1: Get an herb, hold it in your hand, hold the herb from question 1 in your other hand, then ask, “What will be the result if I add this herb to that herb?” If there’s more to the formula than combining the herbs, explain what you’d do. If you have more than 2 herbs, you can also select an herb by looking at it. But the point is, don’t rely on names, because the ethereal software might not know the names of herbs.
Another technique I like for selecting from a list is to ask, “Guide me to look at the herb I should select to produce an effective formula for X.” Also, you’ll probably notice that I specify the goal in each question (“produce an effective formula for X”). That’s intentional. I find it risky to rely on the ethereal software to remember my goal from one query to the next — it might default to something bad, like leading me to long-term opportunities for personal growth.
Lastly, after making the actual mixture of herbs, I’d ask the same question: “What will this mixture do? How could I change it to be more effective at X?” Because maybe the software didn’t foresee exactly how you’d mix them together, and had answered assuming you’d do further manifesting about how much of each herb to use.
My Prickly Ethereal Software
You may notice that my manifesting experience sounds a bit less forgiving of sloppiness and minor errors than yours. That’s due to using different ethereal software.
I use ethereal software that does exactly what you ask. Once you learn to use it, it’s really nice, because you have a lot of control over what it does. But until you learn to ask questions properly, you get a lot of undesirable results.
There’s other software that helps you out. Most commonly, when you ask a question, it first asks, “What question should this person have asked to meet their current goals?” Then it tells you the answer to the question you should have asked. Which is really convenient, but removes a lot of control — you don’t really know what it asked, and if it’s wrong about what you should have asked, you’ll probably never know. My software has a setting like this, by the way, I just choose not to use it.
Anyway, if you see that my manifesting experience is less forgiving than yours, that’s why. And if you’re scared away from manifesting by my warnings, don’t be. It’s easy to avoid these problems if that’s a priority for you.
The ethereal software I’m releasing with my book will have both settings, and default to the easy-to-use setting, by the way.
Trust, But Verify
A lot of things have to go right for you to get useful information from these questions. There’s the formulation of the questions; the transmission of your thoughts; and the ethereal software has to be programmed to understand herbalism, at least a little.
And that’s the sticky wicket: It’s hard to know what your ethereal software is programmed to do. This is something you don’t see a lot, maybe because you don’t notice it until you start communicating precisely with the ethereal software, maybe because you sell more books by promising that your technique solves every problem everywhere ever, but it just doesn’t come up much in the literature I’ve read. But personally, I wouldn’t rely on the ethereal software knowing about a particular type of event until I tested it first.
So, whenever I’m working on something new, I always ask questions that I don’t know the answer to yet (so my mind doesn’t just ignore the ethereal software and give me the answer itself), but then I figure out the right answer to verify that the manifesting got it right. I might not verify I got the 100% best answer — if I could easily find the best answer, I wouldn’t have done the manifesting at all — but make sure it’s a good answer, and somewhere in the ballpark of how good you’d expect the best answer to be.
Once I’m getting reliable manifesting, I’ll relax with this. But for herbalism, where getting it wrong could hurt someone, I’d always verify the results are good before moving forward with a new formula.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
