What is Metaphysics?
The following is the definition from Merriam Webster Dictionary
- 1a (1): a division of philosophy that is concerned with the fundamental nature of reality and being and that includes ontology, cosmology, and often epistemology metaphysics … analyzes the generic traits manifested by existences of any kind — J. H. Randall (2): ontology 2b: abstract philosophical studies: a study of what is outside objective experience steered philosophy away from metaphysics and toward the disciplines of natural science and linguistics — Time
Simply stated, it is the branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, identity, time, and space. What does that really entail? Metaphysics encompasses the study of spirit communication including mediums, psychics, intuitives, animal communication, tarot, Spiritualists and all the tools and modalities that go with that. It covers many ancient spiritual practices as well as so called “New Age” practices too. For example: Wicca/Witchcraft; energy healing (Reiki etc.); Shamanism; energy fields and others that are too numerous to mention here.
How does Metaphysics fit into daily living?
Practices can be individual or very specific. They can include opening and closing sacred space; setting intention for the day; connection with Creator and or other Spirits; using particular tools such as drums, rattles, oracle and tarot cards, pendulums, rocks/crystals; working with numerology; yoga, meditation, chanting, tuning forks, crystal skulls; just to name a few. There are countless ways and methods people use in their practice.
What Metaphysics means to me and my practice is to live a full life in connection with Creator, be loving, kind, compassionate and non-judging as much as I can. Share my practice with those that are interested. Be a positive role model to others and help those in need as often as I am able. That is why I have studied, trained, and practiced my entire life. It is also why I continue to learn, grow and deepen my understanding.
My passion is to teach metaphysical topics and practices to those wanting to learn and grow spiritually during this lifetime. I love to help people gain understanding where they didn’t have it before. Doing readings, coaching and teaching is how I share my practices, knowledge and experience.
