Bay Leaf can be used to increase psychic awareness. Sleeping w/ Bay Leaves under your pillow can cause prophetic dreams. Burning it as incense can promote visions. Write a wish/question on your bay leaf then burn it, conveying it to the spirit realm. If the leaf crackles burns brightly then the outcome will be positive. If leaf refuses to burn or smokes, then the outcome is negative. Carry bay leaves to ward off evil.

“Through the present moment, you have access to the power of life itself, that which has traditionally been called "God." As soon as you turn away from it, God ceases to be a reality in your life, and all you are left with is the mental concept of God, which some people believe in and others deny. Even belief in God is only a poor substitute for the living reality of God manifesting every moment of your life.” ― Eckhart Tolle
