This momentum can be ridden and used. One such use involves using what fears we face to then create additional protections for ourselves.
When you reach that point where you're walking away from the last meditation I shared with a kind of "psychological high" where you feel stimulated and a bit floaty, you're ready to roll with this. Following a productive meditation, open your eyes and switch your focus over into a creation mode & grab a needle, a candle, and star anise. Carve into the candle a sigil that you feel represents you, then place your spit upon the graven image. Rub powdered star anise into that wet mark as a means of activating the sigil, then place the candle and set it alight. In so doing, you'll have created a somewhat protective rite that insulates your psychic senses from harm while also stimulating deeper growth.
Following this, you can begin to work more serious magical rites. This can be repeated as needed.
