Your Chosen Card – Five of Questing Upright Mage Deck
When upright, the Five of Wands is a card of competition. It suggests that you are assertively pursuing your desires, even though your personal interests may conflict with those of your colleagues. You are willing to compete fairly and enthusiastically with your rivals to achieve your goals. This card advises you to ‘put your pedal to the metal’ as you engage in the game of life. A mock battle can prepare you for the real thing. Allowing for diversity of opinions is a sign of strength in a relationship. Traditionally this is a card of riches and opulence; perhaps only the affluent could afford the expensive outfits and leisure time to play at the mock battles depicted on this card.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Psychic Abilities : Mental fatigue is worse than physical fatigue. Allow yourself to meditate or take deep breaths while concentrating on a mantra or a single image. This will clear out your mind and allow your brain to change and grow, accepting your skills. Meditating will also decrease your metabolic rates and relieve the tension you will feel helping you to be positive. Release the stress you are feeling and just exist.
Development for Beginners: Step 2: Create a mental image either of your shield being lowered or of it disappearing all together.
Elements of the Psychic World: Also described as an aura, the etheric body is thought to be a second, subtle body which is typically a mirror image of the physical body and which can, under certain circumstances, be projected and travel great distances in a short space of time. It is often said to be the same as the astral body but some traditions believe that the astral plane is one step closer to higher consciousness. In magical traditions the etheric body is said to be composed of fine energy. Recent research not only suggests that the etheric body may exist but that its substance may be electrical energy.

Elements of the Psychic World: A number of other telepathic dream studies have been conducted since, the most famous of which is perhaps the one conducted at the dream laboratory of the Mai-monides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York from 1963-1974. When subjects were in REM stages of sleep, a person in another room attempted to transmit images to the sleeping subject and the correlation of dream images was significantly above average.
