Befriending Spirit Guides (Imaginary Friends Aren’t Make-Believe) by Shaheen Miro

Kids Growing Up Psychic Series

~~ Melissa’s Note~ Shaheen has done it again! He has shared another concept dealing with psychic children. This is the next installment of our series Kids Growing Up Psychic. ~~

Every person is born into this life with a beautiful collective of celestial helpers. These are our spirit guides, angels, loved ones, and ascended masters. Some of them are always present, and others float in and out of your life when they’re needed.

As a beautiful glowing ember in the universe, your psychic child has a special connection to the spirit world, meaning their celestial helpers are much more accessible to them. You may find your child talking and playing with an “imaginary friend”, or recounting elaborate stories with their “imaginary friend”.

This friend is probably not imaginary at all… it is his or her spirit guide! Pay attention to the stories, and the encounters your child is having with their friend. Listen to the details of their appearance, and even their name. These details are not just make-believe; they are very real things that your child is experiencing with his or her psychic senses.

What are Spirit Guides?

Every person has a spirit guide! Your child’s spirit guide is a wonderful, life long friend. A friend that will never waiver or leave. The friendship of a spirit guide is a powerful, soul level connection. A spirit guides sole purpose is to guide your child on their life path.

Your psychic child’s unique perspective of the world allows their spirit guide to be much more accessible. This is a gift because they can talk, communicate and really get to know each other. If this is cultivated, and nourished it can continue, like all aspects of psychic unfoldment, into adulthood.

A spirit guide will watch over, guide, and protect your child. A spirit guide will disperse spiritual insights, and synchronicities into your child’s life. A spirit guide has a unique understanding of your child’s life path, and what he or she is meant to fulfill.

The powerful thing about a spirit guide is their unique vantage point on life. They are not all knowing, nor are they without opinions. But they do see things more clearly and they remain much more objective. This relationship will help your psychic child feel more safe, grounded and connected as he or she moves through life.

How to recognize the presence of your child’s Spirit Guide

Your child’s spirit guide will show up when he or she needs them the most. Guides often appear when there is extreme changes, stress, or something unsettling ahead. They also appear when a child is “losing time” or engrossed in their own little world of play and imagination.

Sometimes a child will hear their name being called, either from a distance, or right before sleep. This is typically a guide trying to get their attention. It isn’t something to be alarmed about. Always ask the question, “Does it sound friendly?”

Guides will sometimes appear as flashing lights, sparkles, bubbles, or other glimmers of light, and color. When I see spirit guides they usually appear as blue or white lights. Shadows or silhouettes can be the presence of a sprit guide as well ( I would do a little more investigation).

Dreams are a common meeting place between your child and their spirit guide. Dreams usually become doorways to the astral world, meaning that your child can explore other places, times, and different facets of the Other Side. Many stories have been told of a child visiting the Other Side with their guide showing them all around.

Your psychic child probably has a good idea of their spirit guides name, and appearance. Ask them who their friend is, and what they look like. See what details they give you. They usually have a name instantly!

Spirit Guides name and appearance

It isn’t uncommon for a guides name to be the same as your child’s, or to be some other name that you or your child favors. Really a guide doesn’t mind the name used to call them. They just want to develop a working relationship with your child to best help them.

Spirit guides tend to appear in one form, but they can change that as well. If they are seen as a sparkling light, they can also be seen in a human form. But some spirit guides will choose to visit as an animal, or some other creature. It is all about what your psychic child, and the spirit guide feels safe with.

That is the foundation of the spirit guide relationship… feeling safe. A spirit guide is a friend, protector, and guide. If your psychic child is feeling uneasy about their friend then you should explore more.

Remind your child that they can ask their spirit guide to come however they wish!

Some children will even cling to a favorite stuffed animal…which becomes a life line to the spirit guide. There is energy in everything… so take this into consideration when exploring your psychic child’s actions.

Communicating with a Spirit Guide

Let your child know that it is okay to talk to their spirit guide. They can play, and chat and explore together. The best way for a relationship to develop between a child and their spirit guide is through talking.

Talk out loud. Ask questions. Give opinions. Confide in them. Try this yourself!

A spirit guide will find a way to communicate. This can come in so many different forms. Your child may see symbols, visions; hear reoccurring songs, verbal communication, feelings, etc. It can be very unique, and constantly changing.

When it comes to working with your psychic child, and helping them to develop a relationship with their spirit guide…. Have an open mind and be an explorer!

A fun exercise for your child is to write letters to their spirit guide. Write a letter and leave it under their pillow, or near a tree. Tell them to ask for some kind of response from their spirit guide. This can be a really fun game. Something will appear!

Spirit guides love creativity. Any kind of creative activity will bring your child closer to their guide. Encourage them to draw and paint. Maybe ask them to illustrate a portrait of their guide!

Another great technique for connecting with a spirit guide, and the Universe is using a divination system. Tarot, or some type of oracle card. This can be really fun to do with your psychic child because they will see connections in the images that you never even thought of. Let their imagination run wild!

A few more things

I encourage you to talk with your psychic child. Being open to the psychic world can be confusing at times, but when nurtured and approached with healthy boundaries it is a gift. Communication is the number one way to make the psychic world safe, and accessible.

It is easy to disregard your child’s experiences as imagination, but remember that imagination is the pathway to intuition. What your child creates as they play, most likely has roots in a very real, spiritual experience. So ask questions. Never judge. Just ask more questions.

And as always… HAVE FUN!

You Are An Astral Being


DoorwayGuidesEWho are you? Are you able to access other realms? Other life times? Other parallel universes? Spirit Guides? Angels?

You are an astral being: A Spirit (that is) being Human in the physical realm. In this form you can astral travel to other worlds, sleep, dream, and ultimately transition out of this world.

You can perceive astral and physical awareness with your five senses. You see, hear, touch, taste, and smell with senses that bring information about the world you live in to the mind. You rely on these senses for all of your information about the physical world.

But if an angel stood right next to you, you probably would never know it. Your five physical senses don’t tell you about other planes of existence, such as the Etheric Plane (this is where your Spirit Guides and Angels reside.) As a matter of fact, your senses can trick your ego into believing that anything higher than the dream/physical matrix of worlds has no existence at all. Nothing could be further from the truth.

There are at least seven dimensions of reality that make up our universe. These dimensions are all around you, but your senses are not able to pick up the information streaming into your brains from these worlds.

In order for other realities to exist, your consciousness must continually tune into and create every bit of every scene that you experience. Nothing exists until consciousness decides that it does. So, if consciousness creates your reality, why would it limit you to only astral and physical senses?

This quote was taken from the newest addition to my Kindle E-Book selections, Doorway to Your Spirit Guides. If you are serious about developing your psychic and medium abilities, then the first thing you should do is create a special rapport with your Spirit Guides. By purchasing this ebook, you receive a special BONUS: Guided Meditation Audio to help you connect with your guides.

How You Can Talk to Heaven, Part Two

~~Hold on to your seats, cause here we go! If you have not read Part One, please take a few minutes right now to do so. This way you will not be confused. ;o)

The Seven Planes of Existence

1. The Celestial Plane is the highest plane of existence. It is the origin of all creation. In trying to understand the immensity and fullness, the terms ubiquitous, omnipresent, and un-manifest, really do not describe it at all. It is said that Logos resides in this plane. (Logos represents the eternal image of God or divine wisdom. It is the supreme creative principle.)

The Creator Source (All That Is, God, or Universal Mind) creates all the other planes as a means of experience. The Celestial plane is where all creation starts, and represents pure potentiality. It has no form or reason, but wishes to express self. As Creator Source recognized the desire to manifest, it does so as a field of being, consciousness and energy. There is no awareness of time, space, or matter as we know it. Our original genetic blueprint is designed by the Creator Source and the celestial subtle body and first two DNA strands are created as part of the aura.

2. The Expressive Plane is the second plane of existence. It is the total expression of the desire to manifest. Still there is no time, space, or matter. Self creates a conscious conveyance for expression known as the expressive subtle body, including two more DNA strands. This is a primal, individual, spiritual being reflecting the whole of the universe within itself, known as an aspect of God. Self begins now to express in an external way. This allows for infinite possibilities of expression, and creation of forms that interact with each other. On our journey toward third dimension, the pure Creator Source creates reflections of itself, interacting and moving directly into the denser dimensions.

Archangels, who work as attendants for the Creator Source, reside on the Expressive plane. This collective host of seven spirit beings is known as Dhyani-Chohan. The Dhyani-Chohan is considered the intelligent force that is the means for manifestation of divine, universal thought and will. Their main focus is to manage and assist with the expressions of the higher power known as Creator Source.
This collective host of seven spirit beings is recognized by religious orders in different ways: Angelic Host in Christianity, and the Messengers of the Jewish faith. It is also known in Theosophy as “the gods” of Genesis who created Adam and Eve.

3. The Causal Plane is the third plane of existence. Self creates another subtle body (conveyance) to experience: the causal body. As a manner of recognizing self, the ego develops. This is also known as “individualization”. Two more DNA strands are created. At this point in the descent, an entity forms. This is generally known as “soul”. (Reference sources debate the timing of soul creation.) It is said that this entity could have as many as 1000 soul fragments in its makeup. Self can interact with the first two planes.

4. The Mental Plane is the fourth plane of existence. Self creates an extended vehicle known as the mental body, and two more DNA strands are formed. This is the central, neutral plane where relationship with others is explored.

The higher planes (Celestial, Expressive, and Causal) project pure energy, love, and truth; the lower planes (Emotional, Etheric, and Physical) manifest these aspects. The Mental plane holds the balance between the other six.

The Mental plane connects and interprets all the other planes within the Akasha Repository. The overall, collective knowledge of the universe is recorded here through record-keeping aspects of each plane that feed into it.

The Akashic Records are generated from everything that happens in the universe, as it occurs. These records show events exactly as they were experienced. It simply observes everything that has gone on within the universe from its origin to its outcome, as self moves through the planes of existence.

The Mental plane acts as a mid-point buffer to assist the transition from the first three planes to the last three planes. I believe this is the energetic place or (“or space”) where the thoughts and intentions of self can transform or manifest into physical reality.

5. The Emotional Plane is the fifth plane of existence. Self still has a nonphysical vehicle or subtle body to move inter-dimensionally, interacting with other subtle energy bodies. In order to do this, the soul essence forms an over-soul, which is a large group or composite of soul personalities. These soul personalities interact with each other, and explore the world of form. Two more strands of DNA are created. Self is still unified with aspects of soul essence, soul, and over-soul, and still has creator consciousness.

6. The Etheric Plane is the sixth plane of existence. Many teachings call this the Astral; however I tend to believe that astral is divided between the Etheric and Physical planes. The Etheric is a plane that quickly becomes denser. It has six or seven layers within it ranging from finer vibrations to denser vibrations. It is based in dualism, and thoughts of extreme adversity are dealt with and explored. The upper region of the Etheric plane is where the Akashic Records can be accessed. (They are held in the Mental plane, but can most easily be accessed by humans from the Etheric plane.)

Ascended masters and other spiritually enlightened beings reside on this plane. In past incarnations they were ordinary humans who have undergone a process of spiritual transformation. Some of these beings are considered part of the spiritual hierarchy of Earth, and members of the Great Brotherhood of Light. Examples of the Brotherhood and the Ascended Masters are Lady Master Nada, Enoch, Maitreya, Saint Germain, Kuthumi, Gautama Buddha, Kwan Yin, Mary the Mother of Jesus, Jesus, Sanat Kumara, Lord Lanto (Confucius’ historical mentor), and Confucius. It is thought that these spiritually enlightened beings have united to further the spiritual wellbeing of humanity. They remain caretakers of the spiritual needs of humanity, and act to inspire and motivate our spiritual growth.

Self creates an etheric subtle body, merges with the angelic kingdom, and creates infinite life forms in the physical realms, while it prepares for entry into the physical plane.

The higher areas of the Etheric plane have finer vibratory rates. This is where guardian angels reside to be close to humankind. The Heavenly Mother/ Father concept also resides here. (As I understand it, this concept represents the god of Genesis and the story of creation.) Also in the Etheric plane are “the elementals” (sprites, elves, ogres, leprechauns, and fairies). Widespread belief among people concerning the elementals is from the recognition of the presence of these souls guarding and protecting the earth. They help the planet rejuvenate itself when needed.

Animal totem spirits and many ancestors’ spirits also reside in the Etheric plane. Shamans can reach this place to work with the engagement with spirit, experience visions, and access power practices. Self is still unified with all other aspects of Creator Source accumulated from the descent to the Physical plane. At this point, self has twelve DNA strands collected and combined from all six planes of existence. They represent two strands from each plane that self traveled though (Celestial, Expressive, Causal, Mental, Emotional, and Etheric) on the way to the physical world. With these twelve strands, self was able to attune with and maneuver within all the planes.

After the physical body dies, between lifetimes, our consciousness or astral body resides in the lower area of the Etheric. Within this Etheric plane, besides the guides and loved ones with whom we communicate, are also lower entities and energies. They want to stay connected in a physical way and are focused on causing confusion on the physical plane.

It is also an area in which many lost spirits get “stuck,” between Earth and the electromagnetic grid/energy. Some are confused and do not know where they are, not able to ascend to the next level of consciousness. You might recognize these as ghosts, or discarnate spirits causing paranormal phenomena. It is necessary to be aware of these “negative” thought forms so you can avoid them.

The fall. As self descends from Creator Source, there is no physical human body until “the fall,” which occurs between the Etheric and Physical planes. Self continues to move into more specific expression, it comes to the seventh (Physical) plane. This is where the third dimension exists. At the time of descent we fragment from the Creator Source, and experience ourselves as separate. Access to higher frequencies, soul essence, and over-soul are cut off.

The angelic awareness separates from human expression, and a split within self is created. Angelic and elemental awareness maintain control of all autonomic functions, such as heartbeat, breathing, hormonal balance, etc. The physical body maintains the voluntary functions.

Our DNA fragments too. Two strands from the Etheric plane “fall” into the Physical plane frequency and the other ten strands disconnect, or turn off from us. The collection of subtle bodies gather in wholeness (becomes one unit, working together) and the combined frequencies manifest as the human body.

Even though we are still part of the other planes (represented by subtle bodies), we are not able to access them while in human form. Think of this like having a telephone with extensions in each plane of existence. But the phone service is disconnected. There is no way to communicate with the other planes.

7. The Physical Plane is the densest of the seven planes; where we (self) presently reside. Part of Theosophical teaching is that human beings have several bodies: physical, astral, mental, etc. that occupy the same space simultaneously. As self interacts with and connects all previous bodies, the human physical body experience is created. Full manifestation occurs in the physical, as we know it.

Because we have only two active DNA strands (from the Etheric plane), at this time, our brain seems only to be able to access the “beta,” or waking, aspect of our humanness. We also have an additional 10 vibrational strands of DNA available to each human, which have been dormant since the beginning of history (when self became human). Each of these dormant strands hold qualities collected from each plane of existence. We’re still part of the Creator Source, but not able to connect with or realize it. This is what is called the “fall of man,” creating the sense of separation from Creator Source.

The subtle bodies are like conveyances or vehicles used to maneuver between the different planes. They are like the cars that are in your garage (representing the physical body). After the “fall of man” the subtle bodies are conveyances that are no longer attached to the DNA. If you would imagine a subtle body as an automobile, consider the celestial subtle body as a Rolls Royce; the expressive subtle body as a Bentley; the causal subtle body as a Mercedes; the mental subtle body as a Cadillac; the emotional subtle body as a Buick. The only problem is that the cables are not connected to the batteries of any these vehicles. So it is impossible to drive around or experience those planes of existence. Self now experiences individuality.

On the Physical plane, we experience separation in many ways. We descend into the belief system that we are separate from one another, from animals, from rocks, from plants, even from the Creator Source. This separation keeps us Earthbound.

After the fall. The different parts of self that descended from the Celestial plane are still part of who we are. But we have moved our consciousness away from Creator Source into this Physical plane to experience third dimension. We are one with the Celestial plane of creation, all manifestations, and subtle bodies that grew from that beginning place. We are one with it all, but detached from it through our physical existence.

You can understand why as a human, it is not possible to connect or commune with entities or energies residing in the higher planes, since we were cut off from them, literally stripped of the gear (DNA strands) that would have made it possible. In a very crude, but understandable analogy, I compare this disconnection to a baby still in the mother’s womb, without an umbilical cord. The baby is still part of the wholeness of the mother, but without any means of communication, is disconnected.

True Mediumistic Communication

Given the explanation of the planes of existence, it seems the only way to communicate with an entity such as an archangel from beyond the Causal plane would be if we bumped up our energies and frequencies. We would have to raise the energies to an unsustainable level, and possibly connect with a fraction or lesser element of the archangel. Not having use of the proper DNA to access those areas, we could not withstand a lengthy contact without exploding, or combusting in some way. An Etheric burnout would occur since the third-dimensional physical body is too heavy and dense to hold the finer frequency.

Many people sincerely believe they are communing with archangels and other beings from the Expressive and Causal planes. However, the entities with which they are connecting could be masquerading as archangels.

It is not possible to exist in the physical world and be controlled by a collective host of seven archangel beings. (Being under control is an essential part of spirit communication, including channeling.) These two entities cannot vibrate at the same frequency.

I believe it is impossible to connect with an archangel or other highly evolved entities. There may be a connection to trickled down knowledge or funneled information relating to archangels. However, the vibrational mechanics don’t seem to allow for a direct connection with archangels.

It is possible for good information to be shared. However, be very aware of what plane you are accessing. Only accept what you know and feel are appropriate spirit energies. You must question what you are receiving. The more you question the entities with whom you connect, the more information you will find out. Always ask direct questions and require them to give you truthful answers. Be sure you are connected with only the highest entities. The rest have nothing beneficial for you.

If you find yourself connected to unwelcome energies or spirits, insist they leave your vibrations. Be firm when stating that they must not connect with you. Then regain your balance by grounding yourself. Feel what it is like to be in your body. Change what you are doing to something very third-dimension, such as walking outside, or perform some working task around your home. Take deep, full breaths. Be sure to check in with your spirit guides to reassure yourself they are assisting you. Remember to incorporate your protective prayers/intentions. (You will find more information on these techniques in chapter 6 “The Unfoldment Process”.)

Opening Up

It’s interesting how a medium opens up to receive information from a spirit entity. Mediumship is being aware of and dealing with subtle energies. The more you work with mediumship, the more your subtle energy fields (the etheric and emotional centers of the aura) open up to connect with a spirit entity. This is not the aura’s normal condition for most people. Those who do not engage in this type of work have very tightly connected subtle bodies, as they were designed to be.

During the unfoldment process, mediums adjust their energy fields to accommodate the phenomenon of spirit communication. This can be done in a safe manner if taught over a period of time. I know, the process of connecting with subtle bodies sounds very strange. Mediums from the recent past (1800-1950) allowed their whole essence to be used by the spirits of those who passed over. They were willing to let the outside entity take full control of the body and aura. This proved to be very harmful to many mediums, when abused. Several things happened as a result of prolonged control. On a small scale, because the medium in question trusted the entity so much, control was allowed to take place on a regular basis. The medium’s faculties, or five senses, were lost. When you rely too much on an outside source, you lose your own ability to reason things out.

Another result of allowing constant spirit control is that the physical body and emotional aspect of the medium is deteriorated. I saw it happen in my early years of study. Several mediums enjoyed the attention and financial gain of producing séances. They engaged the spirit entity much more than recommended, often giving two séances each day for two or three days in a row. The physical body cannot deal properly with this practice because it is not a physical event. So it requires some time to recuperate. Many mediums have developed early diabetes as a result of repeated use as an instrument of spirit control, or died at an early age.

The medium’s emotional aspect is also in peril. The emotional body in the aura helps the development of the personality—the ability to deal with issues of the world in a normal manner. If the emotional body is constantly adjusted to accommodate communication with spirit, it shifts out of place, or becomes loose, resulting in an inability to deal emotionally in the physical world.

There is speculation as to why some people become mentally unstable. Many mental patients think they are well known personalities, or they hear voices telling them to do upsetting things. Their subtle bodies may have become detached, making it difficult to deal with the physical world, and unwittingly open to the control of outside entities.

Spirit communication is a viable tool dealing with grief. Mediumship can be used to verify life after death. Many people need to know that the spirit of their deceased relative is alright and in a good place. But we need to realize that the information coming from the spirit of a loved one is not necessarily highly evolved. How do I deal with the conditions I just described? I do not invite spirit entities to inhabit my body or being. When I am in a session with a client, I work through my spirit doctor (highly evolved spirit guide that is still in the higher astral realm). I have become familiar with this guide and consider him an aspect of myself.

I work with the spirit energy of the client and subconsciously receive information for them. I may connect with impressions or ask my guides questions. If I am asked to connect with someone in particular, I go through my spirit doctor. That extension of me connects with the loved one in question and filters information down to me. My spirit doctor is able to eliminate any emotional or upsetting energy that might be associated with the spirit in question, allowing only pertinent information to come through. Once in awhile, I connect directly with a spirit entity for a short time and a specific purpose.

When I do connect to a spirit entity without the benefit of the filter, believe me, it is very intense. I feel any emotional trauma or physical problem connected to that spirit. It’s as if I experience it myself, and the experience is very difficult to move away from. It is definitely not something I would enjoy doing on a regular basis. It is difficult to disconnect from the emotional trauma. I can see why this pulls energy from the medium, leaving a state of confusion. There has to be a period of readjustment.

Understanding the Chain of Command

The information I’ve shared here concerning the different planes of existence is somewhat sketchy. I have taught it in my Spiritual Awakening Class for five weeks in a row, and have barely scratched the surface.
There are many books and resources that delve into the levels of the spirit world. Many explanations are from different religions and cultural understandings using different words with different meanings, as well as different interpretations. So it can be confusing to sift through.

The most important thing to remember is to be fully aware of the information you are receiving and how it feels. Discernment is everything.

How You Can Talk to Heaven, Part One


Old astronomical clock in the center square of Prague, Czech Republick

This excerpt from my book may step on a few toes. You might not go along with what I have shared. But, you know, I just have to keep it real. And this information is what my Spirit Guides have shared with me so I can share it with you. You might not like what I say here, but it will make you start thinking about what you have always called Heaven. So, keep an open mind (I’ll go a little more into that in the excerpt) and let the flowers’ fragrance lead you to your understanding. Oh. And the best comes in Part Two! So stay tuned in…

How You Can Talk to Heaven, Part One
(Excerpt taken from Psychic Integrity)

From early childhood, we are introduced to the term heaven.
Normally, this happens when a close loved one dies and our parents try to explain about the passing of life. They really don’t know what it is or how to describe it. It usually ends up being described as a lovely place we all go when our bodies die. And Grandma is now an angel.

But over the years, we begin to believe that heaven, or the spirit world is the only higher existence besides the physical world, and all spirits in heaven are highly evolved beings. While discussing mediumship, psychic readers often talk about “the material world” versus “the spirit world”. These dualistic generalities are too limiting. They ignore the majority of layers that represent the many vibrations of spirit.

The term spirit world is generally used to describe all frequencies, including that of loved ones who have died. We tend to think only of our grandparents in the spirit world. But the world of spirit is vast, and includes lower as well as higher entities. You may be aware of angels and spirit guides in the spirit realm of existence. There are also expanded planes (or other “heavens”). These planes have archangels and other highly evolved entities, out of reach to mere mortals. These levels are known as the Celestial, Expressive, Causal, Mental, and Emotional planes of existence. These planes do not need what we know as the “laws of physics”. Space and time do not exist outside of the third-dimensional physical world. Those of us in the physical body are the only ones who maneuver exclusively in the third dimension. We have little or no concept of what it would be like to live outside of these limitations.

We are part of one huge, multidimensional cosmos made of things not of this world. Yet they are manifested here in the elements of solids, liquids, gases and the ethers, so that 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 of life expands with our experiences, we begin to see life as a whole: the wholeness of all of creation and interconnection with Creator Source.

Chain of Command
To understand how spirit communication works, it is first important to understand the different levels of spirit, which I call planes of existence. This is something that is rarely taught or even spoken of. Some readers, whether they are psychics or mediums, may not have any concept of where they are getting their information. To these readers, especially if there was no instruction, spirit is spirit, and it must all be good.

Not understanding the chain of command could be risky. There are many trickster spirits in other planes, who represent themselves as well-known Biblical personalities, historical figures, and even entertainers. These impersonators enjoy the deception. Some psychic readers really want to believe that they have connected with this or that popular entity, and ego takes over. One hosts the other and the charade continues. But the danger of connecting with a deceptive spirit is that this spirit may not have the true information being sought. So let’s get a better picture of how the layers of the spirit world can interact and how they cannot.

As we discuss our spirit’s progression into the third dimensional world, it is important to recognize ourselves as spirit in human form. We actually descended into this third-dimensional human incarnation. Wanting to experience as much as possible, our spirit expanded into progressively denser frequencies, which became known to us as planes of existence. Each level became denser than the previous one, with denser forms to experience them. As we move farther from the Creator Source, the frequencies slow down, and are considered lower (and denser) than the original source. The subject is so vast (unlimited) that this chapter does not do it justice. However, I feel that the need to understand the concept in a simple manner is important to fully understand spirit communication.

Thinking out of the box. If you will, just for a few moments, indulge me by reading this chapter by considering that there may be many ways of thinking about our world. The information here could possibly challenge your core belief systems. I am not asking you to change your mind about anything. I don’t even ask you to believe anything I present there. All I ask is that you consider the possibilities. By thinking out of the box, we allow new ideas to blossom. This chapter on the different planes of existence is not just my idea, but shared by many philosophies, cultures, researchers, and religions. I happen to think it is important to consider when looking at the concept of spirit communication.

As I looked for ways to describe the different layers of existence, I came across many cultural and religious understandings about this entire topic. There were many words to describe these levels, many differing ideas of what each level represented, and so there was no one definitive source to glean from. I have pulled the concepts together here for you in the clearest form I could. Each level has a simplified description. In explaining the various levels or planes of existence, I will start from what I believe to be “the beginning” as the first plane, and work down to what is known as the physical existence or seventh plane. The layers are chronological from Creator Source down to the physical level (lighter, higher energies being at the top, and heavier, lower energies at the bottom).

This is opposite of what is normally presented, but it seems more logical to go from “start to finish”. I use the term self to express how spirit originally started from Creative Source, and has advanced from non-form potential into human physical form.

Here is a quick view of the seven planes of existence:
1. Celestial plane
2. Expressive plane
3. Causal plane
4. Mental plane
5. Emotional plane
6. Etheric plane
7. Physical plane

The planes of existence have protective veils, distinguishing each one from the others. Each is also divided into degrees, systems and numerous sub-categories. I will not present details concerning the many systems and sub-categories here, since I want to keep this explanation simplified.

Keep these things in mind as you read about each plane of existence:
• Subtle bodies: Portions of aura of self are created on each plane as subtle bodies. Each subtle body manifests as a form of conveyance when the desire for experience presents itself. They progressively combine to coexist with each other.

• DNA Strands: Each subtle body is imprinted with unmanifested DNA strands, known as the “blueprint of life”. Each plane creates two strands of DNA. So by the time self prepares to manifest as humanity in each physical form, twelve strands have accumulated from the six higher planes (Celestial, Expressive, Causal, Mental, Emotional, and Etheric).

Click here for the Discussion Board

You know, anything having to do with “psychic” is always interesting. And there are so many people out there (just like you!) who need a safe place to talk about it. I’ve seen so many comments to my articles here on The GoBetween Blog, and don’t always have time to answer them fully.

So I have been inspired to create a special Discussion Board just for Psychic Topics. And you are invited to share with others there some of your experiences. Ask questions about areas of paranormal things that confuse you or peek your interest.

I’ll be monitoring the board, checking on the questions, and answering some of them as I can. But this board is for YOU. I want you to have a place you can express your thoughts about dreams, and other unworldly things you see or hear. Some other topics you might talk about are: spirit guides, ghosts, angels, ascended masters, mediumship, seeing sparkles and orbs, auras, spiritual healing, life after death, hauntings…

Be sure to post with love. By this, I mean please do not make rude remarks. Everyone has their own opinion. It is important to honor that. If I see comments that are not appropriate, I will delete them, and if it continues, I will bar that particular person from the board.

The Psychic Self Discussion Board is a FREE place to share your thoughts and observations. So please, enjoy it! with my blessings.

Have fun! and I’ll see on the Board!

5 Steps to Develop Your Sparkle – Seeing Abilities


Do you see sparkles? Or, do you want to see sparkles?

Here are some exercises to help you develop these abilities.

1. Meditate. Meditation gives your spirit, mind and physical self a chance to connect. There is no right way or wrong way to perform meditation. It is only important that you are able to relax and focus your mind. When your mind starts to wander, notice it, and then re-focus. As you practice meditation on a regular basis, you will notice the existence of your own spiritual energy. It is the connection to your spiritual self that opens to intuitive abilities. By strengthening the connection to your spiritual self, you will increase of your intuitive and psychic abilities.

2. Present Moment Solitude. Steer away from distractions that keep your mind occupied. Know when you are aware of your surroundings and cherish those moments. This helps develop inner mental accuracy and focus. Appreciate a beautiful scene of nature, or the sound of natural sounds, like the chirping of birds, the crunch of footsteps in the snow, etc. These natural resonances can enhance intuition and psychic abilities.

3. Listen. The act of listening is important in increasing psychic awareness. After continuing this exercise for some time, you will begin to notice an increase in your overall awareness, which affects your level of intuition.

4. See without Looking. Many teachers call this softening your vision.

  • a. As you sit outside, especially around sunset, gaze at a distant bush, bed of flowers or tree. Soften your vision. By this, I mean while looking at an object, relax your eyes, so that you really do not see it anymore. But you are still seeing in a non-descript way. You still can see the bushes, but you do not look at it too hard. This gives your spirit a chance to show you sparkles, lights and other colors that the physical eyes do not see. These colors and things are always there, but humans do not normally look for them. They are not part of our regular world, so the conscious mind filters the vision out.

  • b. This can also be accomplished at night, after you turn off the bedroom lights and adjust your eyes to the dark. Lazily look around your room. Do not try to make out the shapes and figures. Just relax your eyes and only see.

    5. Ask to See. You are constantly surrounded by loved ones who have passed away, spirit guides, angels, and other loving entities. They are always supporting you and bringing your information. They show themselves to you. Give yourself permission to see them in a spiritual vision. Ask them to show themselves to you in a way that you are able to recognize them.
