Grounding Essentials for Psychics and Mediums


Question: Why would we need to center and ground ourselves if we are ascending?

Answer: I know, we are constantly trying to raise our vibrations to reach a higher frequency space. Some of us call it ascension. Or moving from the Third Dimension to the Fourth or Fifth. (As in the song, Dawning of the Age of Aquarius by Earth, Wind and Fire). But let’s think about this for a minuet ~

~ We, as Spirit-Beings, have decided to incarnate into the Third Dimension to have an Earth Experience. How could we have a physical experience if we were not Third Dimensional? To move up and out of the physical body to ascend to another dimension means we have forsaken the prime directive.

I feel we are to expand ourselves to accommodate higher frequencies while still holding to Third Dimensional Earth. Our bodies can morph or intertwine vibrations to become more than we are now. We have some of the most productive and amazing qualities as humans. And we are only using a small amount of the body/brain potential available to us.

So, how can we ground ourselves here, and still expand into higher frequencies? Here are a few of my own thoughts:

1. Komara, a way of expanding consciousness without blowing apart. Keep your feet together and arms up in a “Y” shape. This opens you to other realms and higher information, such as communicating with your guides, etc. Then stand with your feet spread out at shoulder width and arms down to your sides. This grounds your spirit in the body, making it easier to maneuver on Earth. Use both positions to keep balanced.

2. Use earthing, or walking on the ground barefoot as a way to instantly ground your body to earth. If you are worn out and exhausted from a busy day, or communing with spirit, this brings your energy back asap.

3. Understand why events happen instead of getting caught up in the drama – perspective in all things.

4. Pieces of the higher realms are leaking into our third dimension. Find out where these things are leaking without your knowledge or permission and close them or welcome depending on what feels right for you.

5. Increase your energetic awareness. When you open up to intuitive concerns, you can feel information coming in. Pay attention to it. Know when it opens and when it closes. Be in control of that by putting your focus there.
Balanced energy flows and resonates with well-being. Unbalanced energy leads to dis-ease.

6. Detect Energy from a Higher Vibration. By practicing as a lightworker, and being open to your psychic senses, you have a whole new dimension of consciousness. This is True Knowing in its highest sense.

7. Frequencies of Food, Medication, and Other Factors. In order to stay grounded be particular about the frequencies of the foods you eat. Food is fuel for the physical body.

For example, you know what happens if you download a lot of useless information on your computer. It will crash. Cheaper fuel will cause a car to run inefficiently. Food with negative energy or lower vibrations tears down the physical body and opens it to disease. It can cause problems in your subtle body system, and slow down your evolution.

Processed foods, additives, dyes, hormones, and medications can all be problems for your well being. This is the problem that the energy-sensitive Indigos ran into when they began to incarnate in Earth’s plane. Their sensitive systems were contaminated by foods that don’t resonate with their higher vibration. This is when many had reactions and health problems, such as attention deficit disorder (like an energy failure) and hyperactivity (like energy surges), leading to misdiagnosis and overmedication.

Like the new Indigos, we as adult, hyper-sensitives, our bodies cannot hold the negative vibrations of all of the garbage going in. The “old system” can make us sick. Organic diets hold a much higher vibration and thus are better suited to the transforming body and evolving psychic senses.

A high vibrational diet consists of foods that are ALIVE and that positively benefit the person, as well as the planet as a whole. High vibration means having more light, and thus less density. Consider trying a whole food one-day diet a week. See what it feels like.

Keeping yourself grounded and aware of your own vibrations is the best way to achieve your ascension process and keeping centered.

Many Blessings, Melissa Leath

Free Video Event: Reclaiming Your Power as an Empath


Reclaiming Your Power as an Empath: Discover 5 Steps to Transform Karmic Wounds, Detox Heavy Emotions & Set Healthy Boundaries.

Saturday, August 25, 2018

Is your empathic nature a gift or a burden?
Discover how to detox other people’s energy

Do you tend to take on other people’s emotions and energy — and have been doing so since you were a child? Your empathic nature is actually a gift that you can tap into for deep healing, though sometimes it may feel more like a burden…

Yet you CAN stop taking on other people’s energy, detox heavy emotions, and set healthy boundaries… reclaiming your power as an empath, says Wendy De Rosa, a leading spiritual teacher and intuitive healer.

I have been working with and teaching empaths for many years, helping them realize their own gifts, and showing them ways to protect themselves from outside energy and control how they interact with hyper-energy folks. So I know you will learn a lot from Wendy De Rosa!

This week, you can discover how to shift a lifelong pattern of taking on other people’s emotions and energy. By learning how to “detox” patterns in your own energy system, you can be more centered in your power, and capable of expressing the gifts of your empathy.

I hope you’ll join me on Saturday, August 25, for Reclaiming Your Power as an Empath: Discover 5 Steps to Transform Karmic Wounds, Detox Heavy Emotions & Set Healthy Boundaries.

You can find out more and register here for this FREE virtual event

In this free video event, you’ll discover:

  • The 5 karmic wounds most overly empathic people carry with them — and how you can begin to clear these “contracts”
  • The reasons you automatically absorb other people’s energy, causing you to feel ungrounded, disempowered, or depressed.
  • How to further transform energy blocks in your second chakra, so you can set and maintain healthy boundaries, feel grounded and safe, and create deeper intimacy with others
  • How to learn to intuitively read energy without taking it on — so you can share your healing gifts with others
  • A guided practice for detoxing heavy emotions (such as fear, shame, and guilt) — and resetting your emotional center

    .

    According to Wendy, empaths are here to model sensitivity as a vital form of human connection and communication… this energetic “vibration” is essential to our collective healing.

    Yet, empaths must heal their over-sensitivity, stop energetic absorption, and learn to set healthy boundaries. Understanding how you became overly empathic — so you can heal the wounds that contributed to losing your energetic autonomy — is the next step in reclaiming your power as an empath.

    RSVP here to join Wendy De Rosa for this free event

    Hope to see you! Melissa

    P.S. Please don’t miss this powerful event with Wendy De Rosa. You’ll discover how you can clear the specific blocks that empaths deal with (including karmic wounds and trauma) so that you can fully ground yourself as an empathic healer.

    Save your space here for Reclaiming Your Power as an Empath: Discover 5 Steps to Transform Karmic Wounds, Detox Heavy Emotions & Set Healthy Boundaries. A downloadable video recording will be provided later to all who register, whether or not you listen to the scheduled event.

  • Solar Eclipse: 7 Tips for Empaths


    August 21, 2017 marks a very special day for the earth! She is being separated from the Sun for several minutes. You may think this is a mini-event in the scheme of things, but you would be incorrect.

    There is a very sensitive energy field surrounding our planet. It helps us handle emotions and logic, and keeps life at a regular and constant flow. This energy field helps plants, animals, birds, fish, and humans to regulate their existence. And whenever this flow of energy is interrupted or altered in any way, that flow shifts.

    If you are empathic (aware of it or not), you will be effected by this event. The actual eclipse takes over 2-3 hours to happen. And you can experience the most wonderful shifts in nature if you open to it. But if you have been paying attention the last few months, you realize that everything has been gearing up for this event: upheaval on all levels, letting go of unessential things, emotional outbursts, extreme joy, extreme pain – both physical and emotional. So this eclipse has been brewing for some time!

    The Sun and Moon have always been special symbols to me and held magical powers. They represent the delicate balance between day and night. But more than that, the Sun means life to us all. And the Moon is the ability to recognize the time for rest, so the body and mind can rejuvenate. So we need both in regularity. When that regularity is interrupted, we feel the resistance. It is an uneasy sense, and could seem frightful.

    But I feel the intense need for this interruption. Seems that nature is saying, “pay attention now”. Could we be too complacent in our lives? Could we be ignoring important aspects in our world? Look at the possibility that you should re-evaluate how your life is going.

    1. Know the Facts Research the event. Many people from ancient times have sewn negative thoughts about the eclipse. It was a time of much fear, since nature was not responding in a normal way. Whatever was not understood was feared. Know that you have better information now. This is a logical event that falls in the realm of progress through the universe. We have better ways of understanding it, and know it is not the end of the world.

    2. Gather Energy You can gather a large amount of positive energy during the eclipse. It brings the best of yin/yang (feminine/masculine) aspects. So it will help balance your personal energy and perspective. To do this, simply breathe with intention.

    3. Experience the Full Eclipse Be open to the full effects of the eclipse. Find a place out in nature – such as an open field, clearing space in a wooded area, public park, or even your backyard that you can sit on the ground. Plan this ahead of time so you have everything needed. (solar glasses, water, snacks, etc.) Use a meditation known as Mindfulness (or Present Moment Awareness). You can keep your eyes open or closed, but only be aware of what is happening at the moment. You will be surprised at the way things change around you – shadows, sounds, breezes, etc. This is the full experience!

    4. Be Open Instead of trying to hide and shield your energy, do the reverse. Open all subtle bodies (connected to the chakras) to feel and sense everything the animals are feeling, and be aware of the changes that the oncoming darkness brings. Have prepared affirmations to benefit your experience. Here are some I will be using:

    a. I am willing to feel all of nature during the eclipse today.
    b. I send love to all living things.
    c. I accept the possibility of change in my life.
    d. I know I am continually safe during this experience of awareness.

    5. Alone or With Friends? Decide ahead of time if you want to be alone during this experience, or share it with family and friends. Either one is great, according to what you want to do. It will also depend on how your friends and family will respond to the eclipse. Are they just out for a fun, good time? Or do you think they will share in your wish to experience it?

    6. Eclipse Glasses Be sure to bring your eclipse glasses. And make sure they are approved and certified as safe to use for this purpose. Check out this information by USA Today.

    7. Watch the Sun or Things Around You? This eclipse is a very rare event, so you really should see the full eclipse! It will be awesome, and I can’t wait to see it! But do you think you want to watch the whole thing? It probably will last for 2-3 hours before the full cover and after. So plan to use much of this time just being present and aware. You can look up at the Sun (be sure you have the glasses on! each time you peek) from time to time. And the rest of the time just pay attention to things around you.

    This Solar Eclipse is a great time to use your empathic abilities to their full extent! Don’t try to hide yourself, but embrace the ability you have. This chance may never come again. And you will gain better control of your abilities.

    Please comment in the space below with your experiences. I would love to know what happens for you!

    Peace! Melissa Leath http://www.MelissaLeath.com

    Where is Another Dimension?


    multid3wp

    Multi Dimensions

    It’s not layers of dimensions all piled up on each other. That implies separateness. It’s all One, existing all at once in the same space.

    We can only see one dimension through the eyes of a Third Dimensional Body Experience (human body). The higher (finer, or quicker) we can bring our frequency, then we can witness other areas at the same time.

    7 Symptoms of Energy Ascension


    intuitionaa

    It’s been a long haul, but finally you feel like you have come at least a little bit closer to the ascended aspects of the New World Energy. And you thought it would be all fun and games now, right?

    Guess what? Just arriving does not mean you are in fully! Your body must adjust to the higher frequencies. Your mind and emotions must overcome the traditional societal attitudes. And your family and friends may not even understand what is going on with you! Some have called this a “Soul-Quake,” or sometimes called “Ascension Flu”. And I think that is a perfect way to describe it.

    We are moving full steam ahead into the Age of Aquarius. (You know, this is when we let go of that 2,000 year age of Piscean traditions of law and order, logical thinking, and needing someone of more status telling us what to do: religion, government, structured schooling, etc.) Strange energies are invading our bodies and are showing in just-as-strange physical symptoms.

    As a die-hard age is dispelled and we open to new and wondrous possibilities, we must, by order of the universe, begin to feel symptoms of energy shifts. And this will happen regularly as our bodies are adjusting and upgrading to the higher frequencies.

    Go with the flow, don’t fight it. If you feel tired and exhausted, rest and get plenty of sleep. Drink plenty of water since you could be detoxifying and dehydrating quicker than usual. These changes are not necessarily being experienced by everyone concurrently. But we all will recognize them as we go through this “Universal Change”. ** (see awareness note below)
    asc
    Here are a few of the main symptoms you might experience:

    1. Sleep issues
    Inability to wake up, or periods of deep sleeping – rest period after a lot of energy has come in, preparing for another period of intense inflow of energy, processing another leap in expansion.
    Waking up at odd hours – or waking up at the same time on the clock each night.

    2. Neck pain/stiffness
    Foot pain, lower leg pain, stiffness and aching (old man syndrome) or feeling the need to shuffle along while you walk, barely able to walk or move – all due to grounding onto the new earth and taking in the new energies into the body via the feet and legs. Also, low and mid-back pain and discomfort, sometimes severe, often between the shoulder blades

    3. Too much stress.
    High degree of stress, anxiety, but no apparent reason for this. New energy is coming in and pushing old patterns, beliefs, and behaviors to the surface for release. Also extreme exhaustion/fatigue due to our bodies transforming into a lighter structure to reside in higher dimensions. You are becoming less dense and this takes an incredible amount of energy.

    4. Loss of memory
    Short term, such as, what did I just do, say, eat, read, can’t remember appointments, commitments, etc. Or longer term – can’t remember what you did, said, wore last week or last month.

    5. Digestion/digestive tract issues
    Constipation, loose stool, stomach upset/discomfort/pain, bloating and indigestion, inability to properly digest food. Your new vibration and the vibration of the food you are consuming no longer align. Tastes in food change, for example you may notice you lose a taste for and stop eating meat. Eating certain kinds of food causes you to shake inside and out. Allergies: new ones develop or old ones act.

    6. Feeling out of body
    You are not grounded, not present, untethered, or spacey. You just feel like you are not ‘here’ anymore. You are walking between two worlds or dimensions, or in a new dimension and not fully present to it. Loss of ability to (remember how to) write certain words, spell, or speak, or comprehend. This is due to jumping back and forth between dimensions, disconnected or not aligned with time. Part of you is here and part of you has jumped to another dimension.

    7. Heightened sensitivity to sound, light and smell. The energies around you are tuning up your frequency and vibration. You may have a ‘tinny’, hollow or strange sound in your ears.

    Never fear! This is all part of the NEW Norm. As you begin to realize that is what the issue is, then you can relax and allow the process.

    ** Please Be Aware! If you feel like this is a physical, medical issue, always consult your medical professional. These symptoms may also be due to third dimensional illness or dis-ease. Please take care of yourself! ** Always discern your situation, and pay attention to how it feels to you.

    Blessings! Melissa Leath

    Excessive Empathy Can Over-Ground You: Is This a Real Thing?


    FreeWoods
    Recently someone commented on an interesting sensation he was having. He felt he was overly grounded. It sounds like a good thing, right? But he was concerned that it prevented him from being as ethereally or spiritually connected as he usually was. He could not connect as easily with his Spiritual Self/ Higher Spirit Entities, and attributed it to being (maybe too) empathic, and “feeling” all the global events so intensely. He feels he has regressed in his development of connecting with mystical knowing and ethereal experiences. Almost like it has been turned off.

    The state of global events is obviously very overpowering now. Even folks who do not know what being empathic/ hyper-sensitive to energy and vibrations means are becoming upset and breaking down emotionally. It is impacting everyone on the planet. All vibration creates a corresponding action that influences people, places, things, and other events on the other side of the world.

    This is how I might explain it:
    Have you ever been in a very deep sleep and then suddenly wake up from a startling noise? Your spirit jumps back into the body before it is really ready. And you feel completely unconnected – detached – from your physical body. It sometimes takes you the rest of the day to get back to feeling “normal”.

    In a way, this is what has been happening to us, only while we are awake. The events of the recent days and months have been so intense, they have actually jerked us to a more “concentrated awake-ness”. We had to become aware of the world we live in. It has been smacked up in our face. Instead of being tethered to the Earth – flying gleefully in the spirit-realm, we must integrate balance within our triune beings. After all, we are here on Earth – the third dimension — to experience Life.

    Experiences like that bring you back to reality (physical reality, that is). Recently my husband Charles and I were driving back home from a leisurely ride in the country. As we were entering the city limits, a car veered right in front of us to make a turn. It seemed they did not even see us coming from the opposite direct. Thanks to Charles’ quick reflexes and expert driving skills, he stomped on the brakes, keeping control of our vehicle while it swerved. We skidded, and missed the car by only several feet. We both were visibly shaken. But as a result of that near-miss, what was most remarkable was that we were totally in our bodies. We were totally aware of our surroundings: sights, smells, sounds. We began to breathe deeply.

    The state of the global community is keeping us grounded — through empathic experiences. And I also have the sense that it is imperative right now for as many of us to remain calm, aware (grounded), and heart centered; fully integrated in body/ mind/ spirit. Being aware of our surroundings right now is much more important than being ethereally connected.

    Some quick tips to help you in these trying times

    1. Remember to breathe. This keeps your brain working at top power. Then reasoning and logic- thinking is easier when you need it.
    2. Connect with people you know deeply and love.
    3. Be aware of news events, but do not live there. Small doses are all you need. When you become too engrossed in it, then you lose touch with reality. You miss the important parts of your life.
    4. Continue to meditate and connect with your inner self. This is where peace is found.
    5. Smile and know that All is Right in Your World.

    Many Blessings

    8 Ways to Move into Your Higher Vibrational Self


    FreeUnsplashSitClouds

    Here are some thoughts on defining higher truth for yourself, as well as keeping your balance while creating sacred space for yourself and others. (Ideas created in part from the book Spiritual Psychology by Steve Rother)

    1. Focus on Empowerment. We often talk about being self-empowered. But now you must realize that others hold their own power, too — and it might not be associated with the way you understand. While moving in your world, always allow others to be who they are and believe what they want to. It is not for you to decide.

    2. Intent. In the higher vibrations, there are no more secrets. Be fully honest and forthright in your dealing with others. Allow yourself and your motivations to be apparent.

    3. Perception. Understand that a problem in your eyes is not always a sign that something is wrong. There are times when negative situations are necessary to facilitate change. What you see as a problem is merely one aspect of the Whole. You must view all aspects as perfect.

    4. Truth. You must always speak your own truth. At the same time, acknowledge that truth is always a work in progress. Leave room for growth in the words you speak, and for those spoken by others. Let others stand in their own truth without feeling threatened by yours. Honor all flavors of the truth, no matter how different they may seem from your own. (We are not in a competition for who has the best truth..)

    5. Balanced Ego. Always check the motivations for your actions or words. If your ego grows too big, it will cut you off from your Source. But, if it is not big enough, you will never be a whole person.

    6. Discernment. Look for and make your choices without judgment. Carefully monitor what enters your energy field. Choose only those things and ideas that complement your own vibration. Everything else should be released without judgment. Learn to choose only what feeds and nurtures your Soul.

    7. Mastery of Thought. You may not have control over the thoughts that enter your head, but you do have complete control over what stays there. Know when to replace it with an uplifting or loving idea. It is your responsibility to become a master of your own thoughts.

    8. Responsibility. Do you feel drained? You may be trying to take on some else’s responsibility. You are only responsible for yourself. You cannot help anyone by taking on their responsibilities. You cannot do for them what they need to do.

    As you can see, moving into higher vibrations requires a new mindset. You must redefine who you are, your responsibility to others and yourself. Ponder on these thoughts and see how you can implement them into your life.

    What Is Mediumship? Séances, Circles and Channeling


    ghostinroom

    Taken from Chapter 2, Intuition, Psychics, and Mediumship, of Psychic integrity, the Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics

    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 of the loved one.

    Connecting with the crown chakra (or seventh energy center) 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. The main purpose of mediumship is to provide recognition of continuing life after the physical death, and to transmit love and encouragement.

    By working through the crown chakra, the medium’s spiritual path is empowered and opens to integrity in becoming responsible in communication dealings. Association with the higher realms also plants a firm foundation for the connection with finer vibratory entities and spirit teachers. Mediums do not usually attract lower-level energies, as long as the connection is established with higher vibrations.

    Another reason spirit beings open communication with the living is to give evidential information that can be acknowledged by those still in the body. They create physical activities often recognized as paranormal activity, and perceived by humans in a physical manner.

    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).

    Mental mediumship is communication by thought transference from the spirit to the medium. Mental information is communicated, and then spoken by the medium. Information is brought to the medium as feelings, words, thought forms or impressions.

    How clearly the information is relayed depends on how deep the medium is under control: the deeper the control, the purer the information. Mediumistic control has to do with the connection made by the spirit with the medium, using a combination of mental and physical energy. The bond or link is made by the two through the consciousness of the medium. It can be a strong link or very light. The control is determined by the strength of the link.

    If the link is a good one, practiced over time, different levels of trance can be manifested. Since spirit information flows through a living mind, with personal emotions, it could become clouded with personal influence by the medium.
    Mediumship, or communication with deceased loved ones, can be very healing to those of us who are left here on earth. The person going through a grieving process may need evidence to prove there is life after death, and reassurance that the loved one really is alright. There is a re-uniting of what appeared to be separated. Then closure begins.

    The spirit also has a real need to connect with their living loved one to let them know all is well. There is a reaching out by both parties to recognize that the bond has not been broken, just transformed.

    Then the deceased loved one has an opportunity to share the experience of transition. This gives comfort with the knowledge that death does not end life, but creates a new expansion of what life really is.

    Physical mediumship is accomplished by using physical energy, under control as in the mental mediumship, but usually from a much deeper trance. 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 the living.

    PsychicIntegrityCover2x3

    This physical form of mediumship is probably the most unusual demonstration of what a spirit entity can do through medium control. Unfortunately 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 in control of the evidential séance uses both mental and physical energies of the medium to create a physical manifestation, something all those sitting in the séance as participants in the experience can witness. The physical medium has an abundance of electromagnetic and etheric energy (human energy field, part of the aura which is rich with human emotions) emanating as part of their aura/energy field. 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 “Ghostbusters” or any ghostladen, scary program, you have seen a filmy or cloudy emanation around or coming from 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 (séance participants). If the energies are plentiful, a large amount of ectoplasm is formed to work with. The use of personal auric energy is the main ingredient for this operation to be successful. It requires the full attention of everyone in the séance. This is why the sitters in the séance not only experience the event, but actually become part of it. It can be a very dramatic demonstration of energy manipulation by spirit.

    The Trance State: A deep control by the spirit will produce a trance state of consciousness with the medium. A lighter trance is used for mental mediumship, and a deeper trance is used for physical mediumship.

    Indicators for the trance state are similar to those for deep meditation. Trance can be recognized by the slowing down of many of the medium’s automatic physical body processes which are generally controlled unconsciously: heart rate, breathing and body temperature. It is not the same as the sleep state, but could be confused with it. For all intents and purposes, the medium is unconscious.

    Since spirit speaks directly through the consciousness of the medium in the trance condition, the voice will sound much different from the person’s usual voice. This is considered more accurate information and is often called direct voice.

    Channeling is a mild form of trance, in which the medium is usually still awake and aware of the information coming through. It deals with spiritual teachings coming from the higher realms. As I see it, if you are unaware of the information coming through, you are in deep trance. If you are given a trail of information as a conversation, a lecture or a class, then you are channeling.

    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 energy transformation and can manipulate the ectoplasm to produce phenomena.

    A medium can facilitate physical phenomena because there is an abundance of this etheric ectoplasm. This is a part of the subtle energy body that allows us to operate as humans. In a physical medium, this subtle body is more loosely attached than in most people. {More on this in chapter 3 “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, flickering lights, independent writing/painting, direct voice, and partial or full materialization of spirit bodies. As a witness in many séances during my years in the work, I have seen a light show that would rival any rock concert! I have seen apports (objects materialize out of thin air) in full view during the daylight. It truly is amazing what can be done during spirit control.

    Why is it important to have physical phenomena? If the spirit mind (and we all have a spirit mind) can transform matter, then the same intelligence can transform other areas of life to manifest the world we know we could have. Information is being shared by many metaphysical teachers about the Law of Attraction and Manifestation. Physical phenomenon is another form of evidence to validate manifestation.

    Minding Your Own Psychic Business (for Empowerment)

    Recently Ivy, Bella (5 years old) and I were relaxing in the family room.

    Ivy and I chatted randomly when Bella put her hands up to quiet us saying, “Ssshhh, please be more quiet, I am listening to the future.” Ivy and I took a breath, looked at one another, and fell silent. ~~ Grandmother Christine.

    WHAT CAN I DO?

    When to Tune In, and Tune Out — Empaths specifically are particularly sensitive and can instinctively “take on more water” than they can handle in being compassionate to others. But be careful. Empathy alone may not allow you to be passionate and compassionate, but load you down with other peoples woes.

    So many are and will be suffering by taking on someone else’s stuff. If we’re not careful to filter/ discern what we tune into, we could be compromised by a full download of emotion.

    Operate from a warm, but detached perspective to be a conscious point of reference. A lifeguard, while rescuing a drowning swimmer, has to approach the situation with great caution and wisdom. He must insure that he too will not go down with the panicking victim. If we tune into the fear and panic, then our positive potential is completely compromised. And we do no one any good.

    Mind Your Psychic Awareness — Mind how you tune in and perceive. There’s a time to turn it up, and a time to turn it down. Know the difference and proceed in your own ability.

    Always act in a responsible manner, being intensely aware of the worldly external space and your internal environment. Don’t get caught up in foolish mind flips or side tracks. Other people always want your to be part of their drama.

    Everything has been shaken up by the higher energies now pouring in, so almost everyone is still walking through the mist. If your light is bright, then moths are attracted to you. They want to use your light to help them see. They can also take or scatter your energy.

    HERE IS AN EXCERCISE YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOURSELF:

    Visualization
    1. Breathe golden light into your aura until it is fully gold. This raises your personal frequency.
    2. Surround your golden aura with a deep blue color. (This seals in your energy, and acts like a shell of protection.) Ask for protection and strength.

    We are responsible for our own happiness; our thoughts and emotions affect others and the whole cosmos! Everyday life makes the energy shifts challenging! The new energies are forcing us to deal with dysfunctional relationships around us, confront our shadow sides, and search for our soul/ inner peace to bring positive changes. Dis-eases, illnesses, anxieties, depressions, and feeling of being disconnected or overwhelmed are the common tendencies when one can’t cope with the new energies! Even positive, peaceful people who live with joys and happiness find it overwhelming due to the quickening of time and intensity of the mixed collective energies!

    We are all becoming empathic. It’s important to use discretion when recognizing outside energies. Be well!
