Metaphysical Tip: Clearing the Energy of an Object


Spiraling Heart-Love Vibrations

Over the years, I certainly have found myriad manners in which to change negative energies into positive. They range from the four-step smudging (offering tobacco, cedar smudge, sweet grass smudge and finally sage smudge including prayers that I may discuss at a later time) to the detailed oriental art of feng shui. All of which are admirable and productive ways to clear a space. I use them all.

But today I want to share a quick and easy, instant ~if you will~ method for clearing energy from an object. This can be used at inconvenient times when the other, more organized methods are out of the question.

Suppose you are at an event and find that your crystal or pendulum have collected negative energy, or at least energy that is not harmonious to yours. You certainly don’t have time to go through the four-step smudging. I have a quick and effective method for you.

Simply hold the pendulum in your left hand. Clear your mind. Ground yourself. Focus your intent on clear, positive, heart-love flowing vibrations.  As soon as you are ready, place your right hand about two inches above your item. With your focused intent, start moving your right hand in a clock-wise circle, moving up into a spiral. This should take four or five circles. Finish by closing your right hand to your left, with the item inside.

Yeah, some people will say this sounds like hocus-pocus. Well, I guess it really is. Hocus-pocus is a magickal method of changing vibrations. It is similar to alchemy. And these things cannot take place without focused intent. You have effectively changed the vibrations of your crystal’s energy.

Another quick tip: To change a room’s energy, that has stale or heavy vibrations, simply clap your hands! Start by the doorway and clap your hands four or five times. Then turning left, go to the first corner. Clap your hands up high, near the ceiling. Move on to each corner until you reach the doorway again. Finish by clapping one time at the doorway. This chases the heavy energies out the door.

What Is The Spirit World, Anyway?

 Understanding the Levels of Spirit

Seeing into the Heavens

Seeing into the Heavens

As you grow up from a small child into adulthood, you are always introduced to the term, heaven. Normally, it is when a close loved one dies and your parents try to explain to you about the passing of life. They really don’t know what it is or how to describe it. It usually ends up being a lovely place we all go when our bodies die. And Grandma is now an angel.

But over the years, we begin to believe heaven or the spiritual world is the only higher level of vibration separate from the physical world: all spirits in the spirit world are highly evolved beings. Quite often, while discussing this work, generalities are made. Psychic readers talk about “the material world” or “the spirit world”. This is very limiting. It completely leaves out the majority of layers that represent the vibrations of spirit.

The world of spirit is used to convey all frequencies including that of loved ones who have died. But we tend to only think of our grandparents in the spirit world. The world of spirit is very vast and includes lower as well as, higher entities. You may be aware of angels and spirit guides in the reachable spirit realm of existence.

There are also expanded levels (or other heavens) with archangels and other highly evolved entities unreachable to mere mortals, such as in the Un-Manifest, Expressive, Causal, Mental, and Emotional Planes.

These planes do not need what we know as the laws of physics. Space and time do not exist outside of the physical world. Those of us in the body are the only ones who maneuver in the third dimension, and have no concept of what it would be like not to live here.

We are all part of one huge, dimensionless object made of things not of this world. Yet they are manifested in the elements of solid, liquid, gas and the ethers so we may live and understand them with physical recognition.

Our bodies are alive because they are temporarily inspirited within a time and space window. Our souls are eternally alive because they are eternally inspirited, part of the infinite existence of all.

As our awareness expands in life with the experiences we are having, we begin to see life as a whole: The wholeness of all of creation and interconnection with All. This symbolizes our idea of total consciousness.

Chain of Command

To be able to understand how Spirit Communication works, it is first important to understand the different levels of spirit. This is something that is rarely spoken of or taught. A large number of readers, whether they are psychics or mediums, may not have any concept of where they are getting their information. To them, especially if there was no instruction, spirit is spirit and it must all be good. Nothing could be further from the truth.

To me, it could be risky not understanding the chain of command. As explained earlier, there are many trickster spirits in other realms and astral energies representing them selves as well known Biblical personalities, historical figures and even entertainers. These impersonators actually get their kicks by making you think they are who they say they are.

Near Death Experience or After Life Experience?

Tell me, if you will, why is it that when someone’s heart has stopped for an extended period of time, there is no breathing, no sign of life, and they are brought “back to life” that it is called a near death experience?

My understanding is that breath is life. Breath is what gives the human body life. So, if there is no breath, the must be no life. So whatever…what ever…happens after life is over should reasonably be called after life experience. Don’t you think?

Anyway, there are going to be some interesting discussions about this topic this weekend. I hope many of you are able to tune into them on CNN. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who just published a new book called Cheating Death: The Doctors and Medical Miracles that Are Saving Lives Against All Odds, will be in a news special, Another Day Cheating Death. (Sat, Oct 17, 2009, 8:00pm EST)

In his book, Gupta mentions topics like: life after death and miracles. So it should be interesting to see if he addresses the spiritual concept of the spirit living on after the physical body dies.

 Of course, you all know where I stand on that topic. If I am a spiritual medium, then it stands to reason I side with the non-scientific views of miracles and life after death.

Speaking of Science:

Dr. Kevin Nelson, a neurologist in Lexington, Kentucky, who studies near-death experiences says the explanation lies in the brain itself. He says they are a physical reaction to “fight or flight” response and it is a part of the dream mechanism associated with rapid eye movement (REM)

He says the bright light so many people claim to see is the activation of the visual system normally caused by REM that creates the bright lights. He also says the tunnel so often recognized by those who are in the “near-death” experience is lack of blood flow to the eye.

But not all physicians agree with Nelson. Dr. Bill O’Callahan, is the emergency room doctor who brought Anna Bagenhold (another doctor) back to life after being clinically dead (no breath) for over two hours.

 Dr. O’Callahan says, “Cynics out there would say and agnostics would say that’s phenomenon that comes from a dying brain. I think that’s hogwash. I firmly believe that people experience these events.”

There have been too many people (800) each day who experience life after death (or after life experiences) to be completely confused by REM and lack of blood flow. There are also those who move out of their bodies and watch everything going on in the room. There are some who can tell surgeons and nurses exactly –word for word—what was said while they were “out” There are also some who “traveled” into other rooms or out of buildings and shared those experiences.

To me, science just has to explain everything away. But when it comes down to it, just because a scientist or doctor says it isn’t so doesn’t mean they are right. Just ask someone who has died and and come back to life!

Physical Phenomena and Mediumship

As promised, here is the second excerpt from Psychic Integrity. It comes from Chapter 2, Intuition, Psychics, and Mediumship.

What Is Mediumship?


Mediumship is being aware of the vibrations of spirit beings, and receiving messages from them. It is the communication of a deceased loved one through an intermediary. The information is then given to those who are grieving the loss.

The main purpose is to provide recognition of continuing life after the physical death, and to send love and encouragement.

Connecting with the crown chakra (or seventh energy system) at the top of the head, a bridge is built to the higher levels or planes of existence.

By building this bridge, an association is made with visions, imagination, and spiritual awakening. It enables you to empower your spiritual path. This opens you to integrity in becoming responsible in your communication dealings.

Association with the higher realms also plants a firm foundation for the connection with finer vibratory entities and spirit teachers. Lower level energies will not be attracted to you, since you have established your connection with higher vibrations.

Other reasons spirit beings open communication with the living are to give evidential information only acknowledged by those still in the body. They create outward activities perceived by humans in a physical manner. These activities are often recognized as paranormal activity. They manifest in physical form to be identified.

Mediumship involves cooperation between a living person and a person in the spirit realm. This entails either communication of some kind or physical manipulation of energies.

Mediumship is divided into two categories: mental (communication) or physical (energy manipulation).

[ We’ll only explore the Physical Mediumship here in the excerpt. ]

 Physical mediumship is done with the use of physical energy. It is done under control as in the mental mediumship, but usually much deeper. The spirit manages the transformation of energy into physical objects, movement or sounds. A paranormal event occurs in the physical, and can be felt, heard or seen by humans.

This form of mediumship has to be the most unusual demonstration of what a spirit entity can do through medium control.

There have been far too many contrived and deceitful examples of the séance event. Because of that, many people discredit the entire concept of mediumship.

The spirit entity operating for the evidential séance uses both mental and physical energies of the medium to create a physical manifestation. This is something all sitters in the experience can witness physically.

The physical medium is one who has an over-abundance of a magnetic and etheric energy emanating as part of the aura/energy field of the individual. Usually, while the medium is in a deep trance state, the spirit being uses this etheric energy and creates ectoplasm.

If you have ever seen the movie “Ghost Busters” or any ghost-laden, scary program, you have seen a filmy or cloudy emanation coming from or around an entity, spirit being or ghost. This is the best representation of ectoplasm available.

Although the medium’s etheric energy is the main source for the event, usually more is gathered from the sitters. If the energies are good, a large amount of ectoplasm is formed to work with. It takes full attention of everyone in the séance.

The use of personal, auric energy (full of emotional and feeling experience of the each person) is a main ingredient for this operation to be successful.

This is why the sitters in the séance not only experience the event, but actually become part of the event. It can be a very dramatic demonstration of spirit manipulation.

The medium gives consent to be used by the spirit being, by going into the trance state. The spirit is now in control of the work being done and can manipulate the ectoplasm to create phenomena.

A medium can produce physical phenomena because she has an abundance of this etheric energy (ectoplasm). It is a part of the subtle energy body that allows us to emanate as humans.

In a physical medium, this subtle body is more loosely attached than in most people. (More on this in the chapter How You Can Talk to Heaven and How You Can’t)

There is no limit to what can be done through physical mediumship, as long as the proper conditions are held in the séance room. These physical phenomena can range from rapping, levitation of objects or people, lights, independent writing/painting, direct voice (spirit speaks without the medium), and partial or full materialization of the spirit people.

I have witnessed and became part of many séances…
