A Spiritual Philosophy

A Spiritual Philosophy

Working with psychics and listening to their stories has led me to consider spirituality and spiritualism. Spiritualism isn't a religion. It's a way of thinking about life. It is an approach which says that our souls live on after death. It says that we have been here before, and we will be here again. It's a philosophy supported by anecdotes, synchronicities, channeled messages, and personal experiences. It says that we have a larger personal consciousness which keeps tabs on our lives. When we pass from this life, we report back to our larger consciousness about all that we had done and experienced. Then, we work with that larger consciousness, and our Spirit Guides, to decide whether or not to reincarnate. If we choose to reincarnate, we can plan the broad outline of our next life. Once we are here, we have free will and can make choices. If we choose not to reincarnate, we can explore other dimensions.

Eventually, when we feel whole and no longer in need of life experiences, we return to our Source, the Source of Everything. And, that Source is not something separate from us. We are always connected to that Source, we are part of it -- like a mother ship which sends out smaller vessels. Our personal consciousness is an extension of a universal consciousness.

Psychics communicate with Spirit Guides, angels, and people who are in Spirit. This communication validates the idea that an unseen universe exists. When we communicate with a friend who is no longer in a body, we know that life continues beyond physical death. This is one piece evidence for spiritualism. Another kind of corroboration comes when we have our own experiences: when we hear from someone on the other side, we feel their presence, we spontaneously know things we've never before known, or we have a near-death experience and see the other side.

Spiritualism makes sense to me. From an intellectual approach, it explains life. From an emotional approach, it feels right. From an experiential approach, I have evidence.

I'm not asking you to believe any of this. I am just setting the stage so that when have your own experiences, you recognize them.

Last week, I heard the message that we can uncap the well spring of spiritual knowledge which already exists within us. We can explore this well of spiritual information by stretching our possibilities in life to the farthest and grandest reaches. In that stretching, we uncap greater gifts, more refined gifts, and more subtle gifts. Those gifts lead us to grander vistas where we stand and see yet more places to explore, more convolutions in the fabric of space that call our name and say, "Come here. I have amazing things to show you."*

The grander we think, the greater the gifts, the insights, and the information, which come to us.

Quote from a Channeled Message - Living Life Fully

Quote from a Channeled Message

"This world, this universe, is driven by love. The power that you have, and possess, is driven by love. Expansion of your own consciousness expands the collective consciousness. You chose to be here in this dimension, in this life, currently, to experience creation, to experience your power, to experience the fun, to expand the knowing of your own consciousness and of the collective consciousness.

"Each day is an adventure. Most do not look at it with this in mind, but your spirit side does. See this as an adventure. See each day with excitement. Each moment in time (even though there is no time) is a thrill to the spirit. We would challenge you to see your daily life, the events of your day, the events of your weeks, as something which is thrilling, exciting. We challenge you to use your power in creation, creation for your desires. It is okay to be selfish with these desires and with this power for it is what you create for yourself. You cannot force your power upon someone else, but you can give your power away to someone, not that they use your power, but you to fail to use your power.

"Live life fully, to the fullest extent of your imagination."

Gatekeepers

Mark your Calendar: The Tucson Museum of Art Holiday Artisan's Market with be held from 10 AM until 5 PM, from November 21-23, in downtown Tucson. More than 130 artists will display their handcrafted wares. I'll be there with my books and Wild Girl! artwork. The Museum is located at 140 N. Main Avenue. This is the perfect spot for holiday shopping. Smile

Gatekeepers

If you've read this blog for a while, or if you've read My Psychic Search book, you know that there are two general ways in which psychics bring information through when reading for clients. The first method directly accesses the client's energy. The psychic may hold hands with the client, or read the client's palms. With the person's permission, the psychic accesses their energy and information.

The second method is indirect. In this case, the psychic talks to her Spirit Guides, angels, or Higher Self, which communicates with the client's Guides, angels, or Higher Self, and brings the information to the psychic. Many psychics prefer this indirect method so that their energy never mingles with the client's energy. This is particularly important when psychics read for new clients. They wouldn't want to co-mingle energy unless they knew that the person's energy wouldn't affect them. If you scroll down the blog and look at last Thursday's piece, you can read about the ways in which psychics protect themselves during readings.

Those are the two basic techniques for accessing another person's information. Today, I want to add another layer to our understanding of inter-realm communication. Several psychics mentioned that when they communicate with the non-physical world, they have gatekeepers who protect them from any negative energy, or entities, which might show up. These sentinels keep the energetic space clear. I heard this from several psychics, and you know how I love hearing the same thing multiple times.

Here are a few examples of how psychics and gatekeepers work together to facilitate communication with the non-physical realm:

Kermie Wohlenhaus told me: "When I am doing an angel reading, I don't go through my Guardian Angel. I have beings which help me with the angel readings. Specific angels are there for readings.

"In order to talk with someone else's angels, I need to have some sort of angelic being around me who enables the conversation. It seems to me like I am going directly to the person's angel, but I will ask, ‘Is someone working with me on this?' and they will be right there saying, ‘We are the ones who make sure that you are safe and that this message comes through clearly.' They are like sentinels. They are holding the energy. They know my intentions are of service, for the highest and the best. For love."

In Gary Wimmer's case, his deceased parents protect him and make sure his channels are good. They don't allow evil entities to mess with him.

He added: "I also commit myself to Jesus. I was raised as a Catholic and I have great admiration for Jesus. I have a hard time with a lot of Christians, but I don't have a hard time with G-d or Jesus. I feel a very strong connection with Jesus. He and my parents can figure out who the Guides are and can filter them. I have enough work just to convey the information."

Nancy Parsons has also set things up so that only the highest and best energies of the Light come through. She has someone on the other side who speaks with the client's teachers, Guides, or family members, and says, "Nancy is going to do a reading in a few minutes. Do you want to gather your people? Whoever needs to show up, should show up."

This gatekeeper provides information which Nancy is not privy to. Additionally, she keeps Nancy from saying things she shouldn't say. Nancy noted, "I am not a deliverer of doom and gloom; but, if I had to, I would need someone to help me express that message to a client."

In addition, Nancy has a second gatekeeper, a protector who stands guard and makes sure that no energies sneak in while people are vulnerable. No mass murders can come in. This personality is her guardian.

The more I learn, the more I know there is to learn. We are just scratching the surface of psychic ability.

If you have any questions or comments, or want to tell me about your own gatekeepers, please send an e-mail to me at gail@MyPsychicSearch.com.

Quote from a Psychic - Delphina Nova
 
Quote from a Psychic - Delphina Nova

"I think I was about five years old when friends in the neighborhood used to line up and come see me. It was like a game. They would come and see me because I would do healings or I would know what was going on with them. This was very innocent."

At five??
"Yes, at five. Between the ages of five and seven years old I had friends in the neighborhood who would come and play on my front porch. My mother would watch us play. At one point, she gave me a doctor's kit and she said, ‘Since you are playing doctor, I might as well get you a doctor's kit.' I turned to her and told her very seriously that, ‘I am not "playing" doctor, I am doctoring.' I knew from a very young age that I wasn't playing. I knew when things were going on with a person's family, or if they needed a healing. I sensed it."

Did you know about this ability before you were born? Do you remember agreeing to do this before you were born, or were you just aware of it as a child?
"I have an awareness that I have always done this. In this incarnation, I came to help. I have the belief that I have never died. I don't look at past lifetimes as past lifetimes; there is a continuum. The ‘I' in me has never died. For me, there is no sense of time. Of course there have been historical changes on the planet and evolutionary changes. However, I feel that if I have done healing work in the past, I still have that ability. That hasn't changed."

Psychic-to-Psychic: Energetic Protection

Psychic-to-Psychic: Energetic Protection

At Sunday's Psychic Fair, a few of the readers shared tips on how they protect themselves while doing readings. When psychics open their energy to read for others, they need to be protected from the client's energy and any negative entities which might come from the spiritual realm. They also need to retain their own energy so that they can protect their physical body. It's important to find ways to allow spiritual energy and information to flow through their bodies without disturbing their personal energy systems.

This post is dedicated to the psychics who work so hard to help others.

People who are not psychic readers might also find these tips helpful. Everyone needs to live in their own energy, unaffected by others.

How do psychics protect themselves when they do readings?

The people with whom I spoke work with the higher light energies and wouldn't normally attract negative energy or the lower spirits. However, when psychics tap into a client's energy, they can pick up negative issues. If a client is nervous or agitated, the psychic may feel jittery. If the client is hiding less-than-honorable activities, the psychic may feel these impressions. Even though the energy exchange is invisible, there can be a transference of the client's problems to the psychic.

Psychics report that they either live in a protective bubble all the time, or that they do certain things to increase their level of protection prior to readings. In addition, many psychics also increase their protection level out in public.

Most psychics have set limits on what they are willing to see or experience. They don't want to see things which might scare them. Many psychics won't allow any sort of entity to enter their body to speak using their voice. They will happily relay messages from entities, but the entities are not allowed to enter their bodies.

This is how they protect themselves:

Always Protected

☼ Every morning, I meditate, pray, chant, work with a singing bowl, do vibrational work, and work on myself. I keep my tools cleansed. I don't use them for party games. I use them to guide people.

At one time, I thought I needed to protect myself because I was opening many energies and I wasn't certain what I was opening. A lot of energies were coming in. As I evolved, I realized that I didn't need protection from other energies as much as I needed to keep myself in a clear and pure state. I started operating at a vibrational frequency which automatically kept negativity out. (Jesse Ann Nichols George)

☼ Any sort of good-guy entities can show up. People have asked me if I draw bad spirits who show up. Why would I want to do that? That doesn't come into it at all. People have told me that I am protected. I don't do any protection before I sit down. It's like I'm protected because this is my job. In the spirit world, nothing dangerous comes to me. I think it's because it is not my job to deal with demons. I don't even see that. Bad stuff rarely comes up. For some people, it is their job to clear houses and deal with demons. That is their growth and what is important for them. (Susy Plummer)

☼ I don't feel the need to protect myself. If you stay in a place of Light and make that a priority in your life, you are always protected. I ask Spirit to send people who I can help. I find this works; sessions become a place of healing. (Melody Krafft)

Strategies for Additional Protection Prior to a Reading

☼  Before a reading, I surround myself with the white light of Christ for protection and I ask for the Highest and Best to come through. Then I start listening to Spirit. I surround myself with the white light because I can become so sensitive that I need a shield around myself to keep negativity away. A reader shouldn't just invite anybody in for communication. (Jan Class)

☼  My protection is prayer. I do not see myself as a healer. I am only the vessel. The healing comes from the Universe. Because of that, I am in alignment with Creator's will. That is my protection. (Delphina Nova)

☼  I was trained to Protect, Ground, and Activate myself before each reading. I protect myself by asking the white light to come down and protect me from anything which could cause me harm mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, socially or psychically. I ground myself by connecting to Mother Earth. I ask permission to ground to her so that I can be allowed to send any negative energy, thoughts, or feelings to her. If the negative energy can be converted to healing energy, I ask that she use it for herself or send it out to whomever or whatever needs it. Then, I activate by keeping my chakras open all the time. (Kat Riegel)

☼  I say prayers before I talk to a client. I have a mirror in the room so that energy can bounce off of it and not stay on me. I also wear certain colors which help the client's energy stay off of me. I tell people to eat before they come in so that they are grounded. After the session, I use the bathroom and I wash my hands. Then, I walk outside and say additional prayers. (Rhonda Harford)

☼  I try to wear something black or I hold a crystal in my hand. I was told that black protects people from negativity. (Marianne Patyk)

☼  I protect myself when doing a reading or any sort of energy work. I ask my Spirit Guides to assist when working with spiritual matters. Also, I have learned through energy work to use color to shield myself from unwanted energy. I learned a lot of helpful techniques by studying chakra energy. (Jackie Chin)

☼  My Guides always protect me from harm. However, it is a good idea to ask for additional protection during readings to retain my own energy. When I don't ask for extra protection, I find that readings can drain my energy. The extra protection works as an energy shield. (Gigi Sample)

☼  Sometimes bad energy is unleashed during a session. When people leave, the bad energy sticks to me. In that case, I will have to take a bath in Epson salt to separate it from me, or I will burn sage to clear the house. In addition, I wear a rosary around my neck. Sometimes when there is negative energy, the rosary breaks. The rosary has a St. Benedict cross which provides protection against evil. (Richard Schickel)

☼  When I am doing readings, I ask Mother Mary to protect me. I ask Spirit only to send people for readings who are on their spiritual path. I don't want people who are just looking for lottery numbers or boyfriends. If they want spiritual guidance, I am here for them. (Laurie Hays)

☼  I put the white light of Christ around us. Everything I do is Christ-based. I call in all of our Guides, guards, teachers, angels, loved ones and extra-specials. Years ago, we couldn't say "extra-terrestrials," so we called them "extra-specials." I call upon all of those people who are in our energies to help be our gatekeepers and protect us. Depending on the group, I may do the Lord's prayer. (Cyndi Clarke)

☼ I say a protection prayer. I ask for protection and for only the highest source to come through. I am not dealing with minor characters. It's quick plug right into the big universal socket. That's why I don't use Spirit Guides. I also cleanse the cards between readings. I say a cleansing prayer and do a hand gesture. I take other people's energy out of the cards. (Maryushka)

☼ I have an eggshell technique which I do on a daily basis. It is a visual, spiritual energy shell which I place around myself for protection. Our auric field goes out as far as our hands go. Up, down, and around. We are inside of our eggshell. Throughout the day, things come in and out of our eggshell. Maybe we hug someone. Maybe we have an argument with a bank teller. We have a coating around the eggshell which protects us, but situations which we don't invite can penetrate through that eggshell and attach to us.

If something uncomfortable happens, I have a salt technique which clears the energy. I carry salt with me when I do readings. After each reading, I use the salt for one minute to clear out stagnant energy. Salt works as a universal cleanser.

Wherever you are, you can use salt to clear out the energy. People don't understand that they need to be clearing out constantly. There's a lot of energy floating around. (Nancy Parsons)

☼ I say a prayer. I ground myself. I don't go out of the house without protecting myself with five layers of Divine light. Sometimes they ask me to ground even more before a particular client comes in. One time I had to be grounded because a man came who worked with neon; literally, a light worker. He was a sign maker who wanted to use light for healing. That energy was so intense, I had to ground myself several times. (Kermie Wohlenhaus)

☼ On Sunday, I heard one psychic recommend the rock Kyanite for protection. She keeps Kyanite on her table when she reads for clients. In addition, she places a salt rock on top of her card deck to clear the energy after every reading.

☼ Several psychics told me that when they do readings, they have gatekeepers who only allow positive energy and positive entities to come to them. Gatekeepers can be angels, Guides, or deceased relatives.

After a Reading

After a reading, or in-between readings, it is very important that psychics shake off any negative energy they may have absorbed. If the negative energy is not removed, the psychics may experience headaches or other physical symptoms. In addition, this negative energy can affect subsequent readings. Similarly, clients should clean out their energy fields, close their chakras, and bring in fresh light.

People who use tools, such as Tarot cards, usually clean these tools between readings.

Dutiful Souls and Karma

Concept from a Medium - Dutiful Souls and Karma

A few years ago, I had a conversation with April Cunningham, a Medium, who explained to me that it is easy to spend so much time helping others, that we forget to live our own lives. We need to stay on track. She spoke of "dutiful souls." These are people who see others in need and sacrifice their own life purpose to help them. While this seems noble, dutiful souls create negative Karma for themselves because they are not living their own lives. Karma is Karma regardless of whether it is for the higher good or not. It's not a punishment, it is an imprint on the soul. The dutiful activity replaces a piece of us that we need to develop into something else. The dutiful actions replace our growth.

For an extreme example, if there is a fire and someone is supposed to have the experience of putting out that fire, but they are too busy using their free will to do other things, they may decide to ignore the fire. A dutiful soul on the sidelines, who is supposed to be following their own Divine Plan so they can elevate, may not be able to ignore the fire. They can't stand to see children burn. They run and put out the fire. Even though this action is crucial for the children, it becomes a Karmic event for the dutiful soul because they have strayed from their Divine Plan.

April went on to say, "It sounds complex, but it is so simple. We are born into a reality which says that the only thing which is worth having, is worth earning. That's why this place was created. We have to build ourselves and create ourselves as unique beings. Everything on this planet is here to do that. We have a Divine plan and we have free will. We use the free will for ourselves. If we don't follow our Divine plan with our free will, we end up with Karma. A person who is dutiful and has to keep coming in to make up for other souls who are just enjoying their free will, will end up with a patriotic Karma."

Somehow, we have to recognize when we are assisting others because it is our calling, and when we are helping others at our own expense. We have to find the balance point so that we keep our own lives moving forward.

Camp, Songs, and Ghosts

Camp, Songs, and Ghosts

Tomorrow is Halloween. I should write about scary ghosts, but no one has told me any really scary ghost stories. Psychics seem to take ghosts in stride. In fact, instead of calling them "ghosts," psychics sometimes refer to them as "Spirit People." They are still people, they retain their personality; they just exist in the spirit world instead of the physical world.

So, what else can I write about? Summer camp. Did you go to summer camp as a kid? I remember boarding the bus and looking forward to an adventure. I went to a camp on the Chesapeake Bay. We did lots of sports and crafts, and were able to swim in the ocean. We scouted for shark's teeth along the beach and were stung by jellyfish (Ick! Jellyfish!).

Sometimes I think that coming to earth is like summer camp. You have your real life. You have school or a job, and you have family obligations. Then you take off for summer camp, or a vacation, and separate from your regular life. You forget about the dishes and the bills, and take time to play. We leave the other side, come to Earth for an adventure, forget about what we planned to experience and live in the moments where we actually experience life. We try new foods and new sports. Then, at the end of the session, we return to the non-physical side of life.

When I was at camp, we told ghost stories around the campfire. I don't remember those stories, but I do recall the song about, "Woman in a chapel door, saw three ghosties coming through the floor. Woman to the ghosties said, ‘What will I look like when I'm dead?'" Sound familiar? The song ended with a scream.

Okay, I can't help myself. I have to end with a true ghost story. The woman who shared this story grew up in Okinawa where people routinely communicate between the worlds. She said:

"As a child, I saw ghosts. I knew how people died. I used to deliver newspapers and I could smell that a person had been in the hospital. I could smell the scent of the hospital. I could tell if someone was dying.

"My neighbor was killed in a car accident. When he was crossing, his deceased father's spirit came and picked him up. He came in a wagon. These are all spiritual things. I heard the horse coming at three in the morning. Through my window, I saw the deceased father come for his son. I was scared to death. He parked the wagon and the horse, then sat there and waited. I heard the sliding glass door open, then the spirit of the neighbor who had died got up and left his body, got on the wagon and they took off. I could hear the bells ringing on the wagon as it went between the houses. I was 16 years old when this happened."

Want more? Come chat with me on Sunday, November 2 at the Psychic Fair at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson. If you are thinking about the holidays, I might have the perfect gift for you to give (or to keep). Need fun? How about some Wild Girl! artwork? Need understanding? My Psychic Search book is perfect. Need a little flow in your life and your body? Wear a chakra-balancing pendant. Feel that energy flow.

See ya Sunday!

Advanced, Bonus Material: Another life moment of the woman from Okinawa.

"I have walked into Native American battlefields, where battles have taken place with white people. There are dead spirits everywhere. I walked in and all of these spirits rose up. They were killed and they were laying there. There were dead horses and other animals. It looked like a graveyard, a massacre, with blood on the ground. It's energy so there is no color in it. The sense in my head is that if someone gives me colors and a brush, I can paint them. This is what it feels like to me in this field.

"I did a Tibetan Medicine Prayer. I asked the earth to help. I used a prayer stone. It's symbolic. I stacked seven stones. It's a prayer. I built it up. I used the stones because they volunteered. There is a spirit in the stone. The spirit outside of the stone came inside the stone and asked to participate in this ceremony. The Spirit Guide (the higher being) came into the stone because it needed a body, then the stone said, "Take me," and another stone said, "Take me, too."

"I picked up and stacked up seven stones. I asked my friend to give me water. We only had a little water with us. We hadn't planned on going to this battlefield, but we had been drawn there. He said, "If I had known we were going to be here, I would have brought more water." I just needed one capful of water to represent healing and life. They are dead. It's a sacrament. It's baptizing. It means everything. It needs water.

"I had one capful of water and I poured it on top of the stacked stones telling the spirits that they were no longer bound to the earth and that they could go to the Light. I said the prayer, the water went into the soil and the spirits rose. They gathered together and shot into the Light. Then, the area was clean.

"There are so many similar places. Everyone should be doing this."

Quote from a Psychic - Kermie Wohlenhaus

Quote from a Psychic - Kermie's Angel Readings

"When I do readings, I interview angels. While I am talking to the person, I am having a rapid speed conversation with the angels.

"They might show me a palm tree in a Caribbean setting. The sun is going down, but not all the way. I have to ask about it. I don't make it up. I don't say, 'This means you are going on vacation.' I ask them. Ask up, ask up, ask up. I never interpret what they say. I ask up. I'm having this conversation about the palm tree and asking what it means. I ask the angels, 'Why is it sunset? It's a green palm tree, not a cottonwood. What does this mean for this person?' They might say that the person is at the end of a beautiful vacation and they need to pay attention to that last day. Or they may say they are at the end of a wonderful chapter, they are going into the next one, and it is going to be like a new dawn.

"My job is to be as clear as I can be without coming through my filter. I am interviewing constantly while I am talking to the person.

"They push me to get out as much information as possible. The reading is going to be 'rapid fire.' I don't just say, 'They love you and they think you are wonderful.' People want to know about specific things. I am constantly asking, asking, asking. I never interpret. Nobody comes to hear me. They want to know what their angels say."

Paradise Park

Paradise Park

I have another book to write. I'm mulling it over. I have the core idea and I'm allowing it to grow. It's a long way from a thought to a published book.

Why write another book when current book sales are slow? Because if all I've heard for the last six years is true, and I can share it with people in a way that resonates with them, it will help mankind move forward. If it's not true, it will push people off the path of truth, diverting them. In my meditation I heard, "It's all true. It's all correct; it's just so much more intricate than what you know. You are just skimming the surface." I have a unique job. No one else I know is walking this path among psychics and spiritualists, and sharing it with others.

Right now, I am cocooning. I am enjoying quiet time to ruminate about all I have heard.

I am savoring time with family. This is the family I always wanted. I grew up in a family which wasn't particularly close. As parents, my husband and I have tried to create a family where we actually enjoy each other's company. Now, our semi-adult children have moved back home while they pour their energies into new careers. I'm pretty certain that one of my life lessons was to create a functional family.

It would be easy to look at book sales, give up on My Psychic Search, and devote myself to domesticity, exercise, and volunteer work. But I hear that I am not done yet. I hear that there will be more time for work after the kids move out. There will be time to be a little-bit famous and there will be time to play. Now is the time to enjoy family at the dinner table. It may look like laundry and cooking, but it is one of life's peak plateaus. Safe in my home. Safe in the US. Things will happen when it is time for them to happen.

Each of us selects the things we want in our lives. Each time we reincarnate, we have a soul contract for our growth. When I worry about lack of progress with My Psychic Search, the Universe reminds me: "This is the life you have chosen. This is the best life ever for you and your family. If money comes from My Psychic Search, that will be icing on the cake." Yum. I love the cake. I love the icing.

From the beginning, I felt that each psychic interview laid a brick in a path I was creating. This path was moving forward, even though I didn't know where it was going. Now, I see that I am building a large, solid foundation for future work. When it seems that nothing is happening, I realize that I am polishing the stones of the foundation. It's a lot of work to polish, to refine, to perfect, the foundation. I hear, "Let go of the feeling that you are not moving My Psychic Search forward. Much needs to be done to prepare the groundwork before you can fly."

Messages from the Universe are slowly bubbling up, one meditation at a time. They want me to write what I know, not just repeat what others have said. How do I do that? I would have to have original ideas. I am slowly realizing that I am here to create something new, original, and complex. To put the quilt scraps together and add my own material, not just repeat what I have heard. How will that happen? How do I write the next book? What will I say?

In meditation, I heard: "There is a concept for life on Earth. There is a way to understand why people are here. And even if people understand it, their understanding won't ruin their trip. It will move it up in vibration. Suddenly they will understand that they should not destroy the Earth. They need to preserve the Earth so that future generations can live here, and so that they can reincarnate and play here again. Turn humanity's attention away from making money and buying things, to preserving the environment so people can be eco-tourists, and can see the pyramids and the jungles. Turn humanity's attention away from war. Away from building bombs, to building water slides. This is what we seek. This is your message to carry. Help the Earth. Encourage Mother to thrive, then enjoy Earth as a Paradise Park.

"It can be done. It must be done. We hope that people will understand that this planet is for play, for growth, and for teamwork. To move forward, they will see all which needs to be done."

In some way, I have known since childhood that I would be doing this work. I accepted this assignment. I was always fascinated by books about psychics. Then, I started interviewing psychics and listening to people channel messages. My ability to hear my Guides is strengthening. When I transcribe interviews, I hear the voice on the recording, then I type the words. If I can learn to hear the voice in my head, I can use a similar technique to write the next book.

Right now, concepts are growing and maturing so that I have fuller comprehension. I am marinating in ideas, absorbing the nutrients from the words, and infusing myself with the things I hear. I hope this work will help us all understand why we are here, why we need this planet, and what we can do to preserve "Paradise Park."

Quote from a Psychic - Animal Communication

Quote from a Psychic - Cyndi Clarke

Today's "Quote from a Psychic" is an excerpt from my interview with Cyndi Clarke in California. Cyndi's focus is on teaching, and she often demonstrates physical Mediumship (for example, table tipping).

My questions are in Italics and Cyndi's answers are in the regular font.

Do you communicate with animals?
I do. I use telepathy to communicate with pets and with animals in the wild. I have two Conuers (a type of small parrot) who aren't supposed to be able to speak. Mine talk. I used telepathy with them, taught them words in English, and now they can talk out loud. I know what they want. They tell me what they need and want, just like all of the other animals I've had. I've done healings on other people's animals. I can understand where their pain is. I don't consider myself a "dog whisperer" or anything like that, but if I'm working with an animal, I can understand that animal.

For instance, if I go to the zoo and see a lion, I can communicate with that lion. I just love animals.

What do the lions have to say?
They don't like being caged, but they are trying to make the best of all the worlds which they have to live in. We bless each other.

Have you swum with whales or dolphins?
Yes. It was wonderful. I was able to swim with the dolphins in Disney World. The pod circled me. There were several of us, but the pod circled me. We were just loving and kissing and hugging each other.

I recently went on a cruise to Alaska and was out on my balcony. In the distance, I saw a whale and I said, "Wouldn't it be nice if you came over to the ship and let other people see you?" and it did. It came over and swam with the ship.

Were you able to communicate with the whale once it got closer?
I can't quite explain how this works. I hear other languages in my head. I can't tell you what languages they are, but I translate them in my head and speak English. I have always been able to do this.

Is that when you are focusing on animals, or when you communicate with people too?
People too. As an example, if an entity who spoke French in another lifetime wants to come through as a Guide and meet someone, I can translate what they are saying. They can speak to me in French and, even though I don't know French, I can translate it into English.

It works the same way with animals. I don't know what language they are speaking. It's not English, it's their language.

Do they have a language?
I know whales, dolphins and dogs do. I think every living thing has a language.

Do they communicate with each other through language or telepathy?
Both. I think they can do both.

I love animals, I feel for them and I worry about them.
Me too. I'm a groundskeeper here and I have been asking the gophers to leave so I don't have to kill them. They have been leaving.

Where do animals go when they die?
Into Spirit, like we do.

Do we get to see our pets again?
Absolutely.

Do they wait for us?
I believe they do. In fact, when I'm feeling really, really low, my favorite animals come to me in Spirit. I know that they are there for us.

* * * 

I thought that this was a fascinating conversation. I found it particularly interesting that the same skills are used to translate thoughts from animals, as are used to hear people in Spirit who speak a different language. Thank you, Cyndi, for helping me understand how this communication works for you.

Sensitivity and Awareness

Sensitivity and Awareness

Many psychics are sensitive to chemicals, microwaves, and electrical energy. They often have trouble sitting at computers because they feel that the electrical energy throws them off. I interviewed one psychic who no longer uses a microwave oven because she feels that microwaves change the quality of food, and she is sensitive to those changes. Some psychics tend towards organic food and gluten-free diets. These people are very responsive to the energy around them and feel that they need to maintain a clear "vessel" (body) in order to connect well with spiritual energies.

Laurie Hays said, "The clarity of a psychic's message is only as good as the vessel; the water is only going to be as good as the glass is clean."

We live in a world of energy. Some psychics pick up the energy around them and/or react to the energy of the foods they ingest.

Jessie Ann Nichols George told me:

"As your skills develop, it gets harder and harder to be around large groups of people. It can be overwhelming to decipher what is yours and what belongs to someone else. For example when you are in a large crowd, it's like hearing all of their voices in your head. It can be overwhelming to hear and feel things, and have your emotions shift. You don't know why you feel sad or happy.

"As I evolved, I realized that I didn't need protection from other energies as much as I needed to keep myself in a clear and pure state. I started operating at a vibrational frequency which automatically kept negativity out."

She added:

"As I work with this on a career level I find that, out of self-defense, I have to keep refining myself. My energy has to be clear. I have to meditate. I have to make sure I am eating healthfully and getting the proper outlets for my energy. When I was younger, it was more fun because I could just enjoy talking with the spirits. Now, when I read for somebody, it's harder. The more I am involved in this work, the more conscientious I have to be about what I am putting in my body. I need to be a clear, detoxified vehicle. It took a while for me to realize that I wasn't detoxifying. I was taking in a lot of energy, but I wasn't clearing. It was overloading my physical body and I was gaining weight. I have had to change my diet so that I could work at this level."

Kermie Wohlenhaus, an angelologist, had similar experiences. She said that preparing for readings took a lot of time. She noted:

"When I do a day of readings, I go to bed early the night before. I take it very seriously. It doesn't matter what you eat or drink, but I don't ever drink caffeine. I want to be a clear vessel. I don't eat anything which is going to alter me in any way. My body is sensitive."

Delphina Nova told me that she protects herself with prayer when doing her work. She prays, meditates and purifies herself. She eats very lightly and drink lots of water. Then she puts the client's highest intention up and asks to be used as a vessel of healing.

Do you have sensitivity issues too? I find that the thing I am most sensitive to is other people's energy. If I like someone, I really like them. If I don't care for someone, it is extremely difficult to be around them. Either I need to stay away from that person, or I need to erect a barrier so that our energies do not mingle. How about you? Are you particularly sensitive to food, clothing, or people? Perhaps it is because you have a heightened response to the world.

Let me know what you think.

Quote from a Psychic - Beams of Light

Quote from a Psychic - Aitreyia

"A lot of people see beams of light, or balls of light, when they close their eyes. That is a form of communication from our Guides. As we allow that communication to come into us, it's like a beam of light sent through a telephone wire; like a laser. It carries information. Our Guides communicate through light and sound. They shoot light into my eyes, or into my third eye, so that my brain can translate it. I told them that I wanted to translate it extremely quickly, so I have a high-powered brain which is able to translate whatever they send to me."

10 Answers, 10 Solutions

10 Answers, 10 Solutions

Today, I am your example. My back hurts. It began hurting while I was on vacation in Lily Dale, and it is still twisted and uncomfortable. You might ask, "How did you hurt your back?"

Perhaps, the backpack I carried on vacation was too heavy?

Or, perhaps the stress of traveling with other people was too much?

Perhaps, I lifted something (like a suitcase) the wrong way.

Perhaps, I was so energetically open in Lily Dale, that I picked up some sort of negative energy.

I had food poisoning before my back went out. Perhaps, I stretched out and stressed my core muscles.

Perhaps, my everyday feelings of responsibility are too much for me so my back locked up and sent me to bed with a heating pad and permission to say "no" to requests for my time. A reminder to focus on the things I want to do and let other things drift away.

Two friends were ill and having surgery while I was away. Perhaps, I empathically picked up their pain.

Perhaps, when I danced at a wedding (and I never dance), I shook something loose.

Perhaps, I am feeling someone else's pain to spare them (sounds noble, but dumb).

Perhaps, I need more alone time and more meditation time (yes, time on my ice pack is meditation time).

Perhaps, the Universe is telling me to take better care of my physical body.

Those are 11 possible answers to why my back went out. My intuitive friend, Laurie Hays, tells me that there are at least 10 answers to every question and 10 solutions to every problem. Her point? Keep thinking, imagining, and working "outside the box" to figure things out. Sometimes we need to look beyond the obvious physical answers and look for clues in the emotional, mental, or spiritual realms. Which is the correct answer for my back issue? I have no idea.

So, I'm working on 10 Solutions to my back pain:

Lay on an ice pack.
Lay on a heating pad.
Have chiropractic work done.
Let go of my sense of responsibility.
Stretch more. Twist less.
Stop obsessing about people in my life who aggravate me (I would if I could figure out how!).
Let someone else do the dishes (love that one!).
See a physical therapist.
Keep moving so things don't lock up.
Have a massage.

Laurie Hays recently channeled a group message which relates to this topic. She said:

"You cannot deplete your vessel to such a degree that it is starving. Or expose it to just the etheric energy without valuing and respecting the physical vessel it is in . . . You nourish your bodies with what you eat, with what you think, and with what you believe. Health is brought together when all of that comes together. Dividing your beingness into sections and fragments, as if they are not interrelated, is like dissecting a person and expecting them to live. You cannot do that. There is the oneness which continues on a cellular, etheric, spiritual level, beyond what you know. You feel it. At times it is tangible. At other times you wonder, but it is there."

Who really knows why problems arise or why they resolve? This is life.

If there is an issue you are wrangling with, see if you can find 10 Answers or 10 Solutions. Then, begin with one solution and experiment with new ones until you find relief.

Thank you, Laurie. I like the way you think!

Let me know if this kind of thinking has worked for you, or if you have an intuitive answer to why my back is stressed.

Quote from a Psychic - The Gift Before You
 
 Quote from a Psychic's website - The Gift before You

Mercedes Kirkel channels messages from Mary Magdalene. Mercedes often asks a question, then waits for the answer. She shares these conversations on her blog/website at http://mercedeskirkel.com. A few days ago, Mercedes asked Mary Magdalene about the phrase "Blessed are the meek." After responding to the question, additional information was shared. Mary reminds us to live in the moment and see that whatever we are dealing with is a gift for our education. We were here to experience physical life.

This is the blog post. I added the bold.

Received by Mercedes Kirkel
On July 28, 2014

Question: I was a student of the biblical scriptures and I love the words of Jesus. I was once told by Archangel Michael that there was a lot of tampering with the scriptures but that the words of Jesus were for the most part preserved. I would like you to comment on the statement "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." To me it seems like he's talking to the heart-based Feminine.

Mary Magdalene: The Feminine is not meek (laughing). This is a misunderstanding.

Questioner: Please elaborate.

Mary Magdalene: I would say that this is one of the passages that have been altered.

It has more to do with what you choose to get involved with. There are those who are very involved with what you might call earthly things. And there are those who are drawn to various things, and amongst those might be God and union with God. But there is nothing meek about this. Nothing could be stronger.

This was something that was used and altered to change the original meaning. The original meaning was "Blessed are those who are drawn to God more strongly than all of the involvements of the third dimension." For most, being drawn to God is a process. It is a process within one's life and it is a process over lifetimes.

There is a purpose in being incarnate. Your purpose is not supported by dissociating oneself from incarnation. To do that is to deny the gifts of being incarnate. This is a spiritual misunderstanding that many have had that has held you back, that has made you meek.

Whatever circumstance you are in, that is the gift before you. You do not need to change your circumstance and truly you do not need to change yourself. You simply need to receive the gift of that circumstance-deeply, profoundly-to the point that it opens your heart. It may even feel as though it is breaking your heart. But it is ultimately ecstasy and opening. That is the process.

So you do not need to become strong; you do not need to become meek. You do not need to be this; you do not need to be that. You need to open to what you are and what is presenting to you, because that is the perfect form of the gift for you right now, for your greater God communion.

Ultimately it is all God. It is not 'This is God and this is not. This is the path and this is not.' It is all God. But until you realize that-not just think it but actually realize that-it will appear that some is God, some is not; some is 'the way,' some is not. That is part of the illusion. But as long as it does appear that way, receive the gift. Receive what is happening to you right now in your life and let it open you to the growth that will bring you beyond this, to the greater union with God. That is the gift of incarnation in this realm.

It is actually so much simpler than so many realize. So much of your thinking complicates it so much more than it is. It is actually right in front of you, right here, right now. It is the bill that needs to be paid, the child that needs to be loved, the tooth that needs to be fixed-whatever it is. It's always being given to you. God is infinitely gracious, always trying again and again through every moment to reach you and help you for exactly what you need.

Has this been of help to you?

Questioner: Yes.

Mary Magdalene: I am glad.

Precipitated Paintings

Upcoming Event: Tucson's Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be held this Sunday, October 5, 2014, at the DoubleTree Inn on Alvernon Road. Many psychics will be ready to read for you.

Now, today's topic: Precipitated Paintings

Lily Dale's Museum displays several "Precipitated Paintings." What are precipitated paintings? They are portraits of deceased people which appear on canvas without anyone in the room painting them. They are produced through a collaboration with Mediums. Several examples from the Lily Dale Museum can be found on the Lily Dale Photos page.

Most precipitated paintings were created in the late 1800s and early 1900s. To create these paintings, Mediums stood on either side of a blank canvas, or sat at a table where the blank canvas was displayed. A client was also at the table and was asked to think about the person they wanted to contact. The Mediums went into a trance, and artists from the other side produced the paintings. This is one kind of physical mediumship.

Full-color precipitated spirit portraits seem to be created from a fine, pigmented substance, which is not a typical painting medium. Experts have examined the portraits and determined that they are not pastels, charcoal drawings, oils, or watercolors. The portraits look more like photographs than paintings. There are no visible brush strokes, and the eyes in the paintings have great detail (similar to the detail found in photographs).

When I visited the Lily Dale Museum, the docent told me that precipitated paintings were easy to identify because they looked like photographs on canvas. She told me that old paintings were still being found tucked away in people's attics. Occasionally, precipitated paintings showed up at yard sales. Not everyone understood the uniqueness of these portraits.

Some of the most-famous people to produce precipitated paintings were the Bangs sisters, who lived in the early 1900s.

According to the Astara website at http://www.astara.org/art-collection-bang-sisters.shtml,

"The Bangs sisters were ‘psychic specialists' who created pictures of residents of the next dimension through a mediumistic process known at the time as ‘precipitation.' There was no color photography at that time, yet the work seems almost photographic. There are no stroke marks that indicate any type of portraiture such as pastels. Examination at certain angles shows marks of a fine dust-like substance that has clung to the glass covering the portrait. It has been stated that similar works were chemically tested in those days and could provide no proof of any known substance."

The website also provides the story of how one man, without making any prior arrangements, was able to have the Bangs sisters produce a precipitated painting of his deceased mother. According to this website, a blank canvas was placed on an easel in the center of a table located under a picture window. The two sisters sat at opposite ends of the table and the client sat in the center, facing the canvas. The canvas was not covered. The sisters told him to think as strongly as possible of his mother. It only took about 35 minutes for the woman's portrait to appear on the canvas.

Information on several websites indicates that these portraits often continued to develop even after being taken home by clients. The day after a painting was produced, details could still change, eyes could open, and jewelry could be added.

In addition to the Bangs Sisters, the Campbell Brothers also produced precipitated spirit paintings.

The woman at the Lily Dale Museum told me that Mediums who are part of one of the national spiritualist organizations are no longer allowed to produce precipitated paintings. In the past, there had been many accusations of fraud regarding this work. In this technological age, it would be even easier for fraud to occur, so no one is supposed to give this a try.
