The "shakes"
Post # 1
When I do a lot of magick or really powerful magick (at least to me it's powerful), I get really shaky and hyper when I'm done. It's hard to sleep, which is sort of inconvenient as I tend to do most spells at night. Is there anyway to calm down after? If I do "too much" magick, I also get a bit physically ill (stuffed up nose, sore throat, dizzy), so doing more spells to calm myself down probably isn't a good idea.

If anyone gets the "shakes" like I do, do you drink tea or something? Or just ride it out? Thanks. I really like doing magick, and not sleeping tends to interfere with practicing.

You are experiencing the energy build up and release, you should
relax with deep breathing,meditation and certain teas will help.
I generally feel drained after intense magical workings.

Short answers:
1) You're probably not grounding out all the energy you're raising.

or 2) When i get the shakes while doing energy work, it's because i have more energy moving through channels that aren't quite "wide" enough to accomodate the flow. You widen these energetic channels through use and practice, so after blowing them out a bit (or by conscious, careful stretching), they'll grow and expand to be able to handle more and more flow.

I get the shakes almost every time i do kundalini yoga (very energy work heavy). Your energy meridians/chakras do expand from use, but in the meantime you'll shake, have many sleepless nights, experience restlessness, etc., if you keep pushing it - but it may be for your own good as long as it doesn't impact your functioning.

I'd research grounding visualizations and meditations. I don't really work with crystals et. al, but others may tell you to hold on to a particular stone like Hematite, etc., for grounding. Eating right afterwards may help. Acupuncture sessions and/or qigong will speed along the widening of your energetic channels too.
