Creating Sacred Space: Exploring Your Secret World, by Shaheen Miro


ShaheenBlogKids Growing Up Psychic Series — Creating Sacred Space: Exploring Your Secret World, by Shaheen Miro

Creating sacred space springs from a deep-rooted need in each person to retreat, for a safe haven to relax, unwind, and re-connect. Finding sanctuary is something we all search for at different moments in our lives, it is an instinctual desire to recharge our spiritual battery by connecting with our higher self, and Divine energy.

As your psychic child progresses, becoming more aware of their abilities, and of their identity in the “real” world, the need for sacred space becomes essential. Moments of solitude, and retreat will give them opportunity to slough off accumulated energy, grounding and centering them, and keeping them protected. Having a sacred space to call their own gives your psychic child a sense of ownership, which empowers them.

Children have very vibrant, glowing auras, like a lantern on a dark night. The aura of a psychic child is a little more vivid, as they are open to many levels of the subtle worlds. This light catches the attention of many types of energy, some intentional, and others unintentional.

Being inundated by energies, impressions, and psychic experiences can exhaust your child on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. Creating sacred space, and spending time in stillness will disentangle them from these overwhelming energies. At its core, sacred space is a form of psychic protection.

Sacred space can come in many forms. It can be a physical place that your child goes to whenever they like. It can be a space that they learn to create wherever they need to… outside, in their bedroom, in a play area. Or it can be a mental place that they can daydream in. I prefer to do all 3!

Creating Sacred Space

Creating a permanent form of sacred space can be a rewarding experience for you and your child. This is an exercise in self-expression. Your psychic child will gather the things that he or she sees fit for this sanctuary, and in doing so they will go deeper into their spiritual world.

Find a space where your child can establish a permanent sanctuary. This can be a corner in their bedroom, a small office, or a playhouse. It doesn’t have to be big, just enough space for them to gather their things, and spend some quality time.

Part of the sacred space experience is for your child to have freedom to choose what goes in, and what doesn’t. Make sure you are comfortable with this process. Obviously within reason! But this process allows them to establish a strong energetic connection with the space. Creating a unique energetic blueprint that fits their natural vibration.

Once you have identified the space you will want to physically clean the area, and then spiritually cleanse the area. Try sage smudging or spraying rose water in the space. One form of spiritual cleansing children love is making sounds… bang a drum, play the tambourine, ring bells, and sing in the space!! This will break up the old energetic pattern and begin to reestablish the space.

Now is the fun part! Allow your child to pick their favorite things to go in the space. Blankets, toys, artwork. Whatever speaks to them! I find adding any kind of artwork that your child has created establishes a wonderful aura of peace, and feeds their imagination.

Explain to your psychic child that this is their area to explore, play and even relax. You may want to spend some time in there with him or her.

Try talking to them in the space. Color, and paint there. Create mandalas. Do guided meditations. Read stories in the sacred space. Take naps here. Say your evening prayers. You want this to be there go to space when they need to go inward!

Even when your child is sad, or angry, suggest that he or she go into their sacred space and think, or color, or play

Sacred Space On the Go

Consider a way for your child to make sacred space even when they are traveling, or at a relative’s house. This will instantly ground their energy, and give them a way of slowing down, and working through any energetic information they are receiving.

Your child may already do this in the form of carrying around a special blanket, stuffed animal, or wearing a favorite outfit. This is a way for your child to establish their energy in places that feel foreign to them. Keep this in mind when approaching the subject.

Get on board with your child’s favorite blanket or stuffed animal. Talk to him or her about the object. Help them make a conscious connection between the object, and their form of sacred space. Ask them what the object means to them? Ask how the object makes him or her feel?

Objects take on an energetic pattern that feels safe, and familiar to your child. This object becomes a type of amulet of protection, and security. Their connection to this object becomes both psychological, and psychic. I find this especially with stuffed animals.

Introduce your child to stones and crystals. Children are very sensitive to the natural world, and working with stones becomes very rewarding to them. They have an instant way of linking into their energy. And they can benefit from their properties very well because they are much more open, and receptive.

Take your psychic child to any local crystal shop, and allow them to interact with the small, tumbled stones that you find there. Ask them to pick out two or three that really speak to them. Make note of the names, and energetic meanings for your personal records. Though that may not really concern your child… they know what they need on a very deep, honest level.

You can even gather the stones in a small bag, traditionally called a medicine bag. This can be worn by your child around their neck, or tucked into their backpack or travel bag. They can play with the stones and even tuck them under their pillow before bed.

These stones elicit, and establish a certain energetic field around your child. The more he, or she works with them, the stronger the link becomes. Whenever your child is traveling, they can pull these crystals out and instantly connect and create sacred space.

As a child I was introduced to medicine bags. I use to gather little objects, some given to me, others found in nature. I would place them in my medicine bag and carry them with me. It gave me a sense of belonging, connecting me to my inner world. I always felt safe with my trinkets.

Be sure to ask your child about their crystals. Ask them who they crystals are, and what they do? See what answers you get. This is an insightful way to understand energy. Psychic children a very wise because they have no reason to sensor their impressions.

Trees, and large boulders are great for children to establish temporary sacred space. Trees especially love children, and often call them energetically… which is why many children climb in them, sleep in them and hug them. As a child I had a tree friend, whom I spent many afternoons with!

Be sure to allow your child to use their imagination here. Ask questions… what is the tree’s name? What is the rock’s name?

Exploring Inner Sacred Space

Imagining a special place in your minds eye is a pretty common meditation technique. This form of internal sacred space creates an area for your child to go whenever they want. If they cannot sleep, or if they are feeling particularly out of sorts they can close their eyes and go to their inner world.

Rainbow Tree Meditation

Stand tall. Stretch out your arms, and legs. Your fingers and toes. Stand in the form of an “x” as if you are going to do some jumping jacks. Tighten all your muscles, and limbs. Then release them. Now you feel little prickles tingling around your body.

Now sit cross-legged, or lie down on the floor. Close your eyes and let yourself slip into a gentle breathing.

Let your belly rise, and fall. Count your breath. Breathe in, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Breathe out, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Do this for a bit to create a rhythm.

Let your whole body feel at ease. You can twitch and move if you need. Just relax.

In your mind you begin to see a long, winding path. It goes deep into the woods. On either side of the path you see large trees, plants, and all sorts of beautiful flowers blooming.

Make your way down the path before you. Wander curiously into the woods. Take in the all the colors and sounds. Smell the flowers.  Touch the trees. Taste all the sweet fruit that lines the path.

Eventually you will come to a large tree. Much taller and older than all the others. It’s leaves glow with a golden light, and it has flowers, fruits and leaves of every color. This is the Rainbow Tree. Give her a big hug!

Now make your way around the Rainbow Tree’s trunk. Wander around her trunk doing two or tree circles around. Finally come back to the front of the tree. Knock tree times and wait.

In a few second a secret door will open in the trees trunk. Step inside. This is your special, sacred space. This is your place to play, imagine and create. Begin to explore this place. What does it look like? What does it smell like? What sounds do you hear in your secret world?

Imagine all the things you want here. Anything your heart desires can be here. Your favorite foods. Your favorite music. Your favorite books, and art. You can have your favorite toys here. However you want it to look in this secret world is up to you!

Whenever you want something to happen here… just imagine it. Poof… there it will be. Or use your magic wand, or your special crystal. Or just say, “I want…”  Let your sacred space be whatever you want it to be!

Come here as often as you like.

When you are ready to leave. Go back through the door, out the tree trunk, and gently close it. Hug the rainbow tree, and walk around it 3 times. Say thank you, and goodbye.

Now begin to make your way back down the path to where you began. And when you are ready, wiggle your toes, and move your fingers. You can open your eyes gently, and come back from your adventure.

Remember your psychic child has a beautiful gift, and the most important thing for them to learn is to be confident, and secure in their own identity. This will allow him or her to use this gift confidently. Playing and imagining are essential for exercising these psychic muscles.

Try creating your own sacred space as well! Explore the psychic world together.

Until next time…

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


PsyKidsShaheen

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!

Psychic Protection and the White Light (Kids Growing Up Psychic Series)


ShaheenPrince

Melissa’s Note~ It is my pleasure to give you my guest blogger, intuitive psychic, and author, Shaheen Miro. Together we are presenting a series called Kids Growing Up Psychic. And we want to share all we know about this subject in a fun, exciting, and informative way.  

Psychic Protection and the White Light, by Shaheen Miro

Kids Growing Up Psychic Series

As a newly developing psychic, in the real world… the most important tool is psychic protection! Psychic protection is the foundation for a healthy and balanced life, especially if you are working with your spiritual gifts. Everything is energy, and when you are receptive, like your psychic child, you are filtering, processing, and interacting with many frequencies of energy. This can be exhausting, freighting, and at times debilitating.

Psychic children are open channels to the unseen world, which allows them to attract, and interact with different forces. This receptive nature can leave them vulnerable to certain types of experiences. Some experiences are beautiful and healing, and others are very jarring.

Imagine your psychic child like a beautiful beam of light radiating out into the darkness. There is so much untapped potential and limitless power at their fingertips, they have not learned to turn it off, to shy away, or shut out their psychic nature. They appear like a beacon, and stirring and awakening things around them. 

Your psychic child is always radiating their beam of light; this is the light of their soul. This is the sacred part of them that has not yet been clouded by their time in the real world. Most people have learned, either by choice, or circumstance to protect… and even hide this light.

This is the halo you see in art. The aura, which is our energetic self. Everything that you are made up of lives in the many layers of the aura, and can be tapped into for information, and manipulated for your benefit. The aura is composed of many layers, and the deeper layers link into the soul. When you talk about someone being in your “bubble”, you are speaking of your aura.

Now imagine your psychic child, beautiful and radiant… things are flocking to their “bubble” because in a world where most adults have dimmed their light… your child hasn’t. Your child’s aura is in full bloom, radiating colors and light. It’s their truest nature. And some forces wish to acknowledge this presence, even feed off of it.

You never want to leave yourself vulnerable. You want to be in full control of your aura. Using different techniques for spiritual protection will allow your child to stay safe and secure. When a child feels invaded by foreign energies it can frighten, and even isolate them. This is the beginning of the great forgetting.

When Your Child Needs Psychic Protection

  • When they are having nightmares, or unable to sleep.
  • If they are feeling vulnerable in public places. Around strangers. Or with certain friends or relatives.
  • Before entering in a crowded places, especially a mall, school, hospital or park.
  • If they seem to get sick in a certain place or setting.
  • When they have extreme changes in mood, or behavior.
  • If they are frightened by something that you cannot see, or that cannot be explained or articulated.
  • Anytime they feel uncomfortable.

Remember, psychic protection doesn’t just protect your child from unseen forces, or entities. It also protects them from the different thought frequencies and intentions that are floating through the atmosphere, created and directed by very real, living people. This is why children are very vulnerable in negative environments. They mentally and emotionally impressionable. Their empathic nature causes them to completely take on and internalize strong energies being sent around them.

A very simple way for your child to remain psychically protected is through a white light exercise.

Many psychics will refer to the “white light”. This is the light of the Divine, source energy… however you see and experiences the source. This is pure, high-vibration energy. When working with the white light you are accessing the Universe, and asking that all of its goodness surround you.

Because source energy vibrates at a high frequency, it eradicates other lower energies that may interact with it. When your child is surrounded with the white light, it becomes a fortified bubble, a shield!

Try this White Light Meditation with your child!

Begin by standing loosely. With your arms and legs relaxed start to swing them around. Jump around, jiggle, and sway. Move as if you are the wind.

Feel a shiver. A jolt of energy run from the tip of your toes, all the way through your legs, your hips, your belling, your arms, up through you neck and out the top of your head.

Shake it off. Shake your head, yes and then no. Shake your arms. Shake your legs. Shake like you are just getting out of the shower and trying to get all the water off.

Now make your way to the floor. Sit with your legs crossed. Let your arms fall gently by your sides, or into your lap. Close your eyes. And begin listening to your breath.

Feel your belly expand really big like a mountain, and then let out all the air in your belly with a big, “puff”. Now pull more air into your belly, through your nose, and deep down into the bottom of your belly.

Let your belly rise, and fall. It will start to feel like it is dancing, moving gently. You may hear a little whistle from your breath as it moves in and out.

Begin to build a rhythm as the air comes in your nose, and down into your belly, and back out. Like when the tides crash into the ocean, and then fade back again.

You may tingle all over. You may feel yourself want to rock a little from side to side. Or gently move your arms. Have fun, and do whatever feels good.

Smile. Let the biggest smile come across your face.

Now, imagine yourself glowing bright. Imagine you are surrounded with the most beautiful light. You are glowing like a lightening bug.

You are glowing on all sides. From your head to your toes. Every part of your body is surrounded by a white light.

Now, think of your favorite color. Whatever color you love… let it fill your mind.

Repeat the name of your favorite color to yourself. Any color… just repeat the name of your favorite color to yourself out loud.

The white light around you begins to glow, and turn your favorite color.

Did you know you can glow any color you want?

Change colors anytime you like.

This light will keep you protected.

Breathe again. Feeling your belly rise, and fall.

Say out loud, “I am safe. I am protected. I have the light of protection around me.”

Practice this protection meditation with your child as often as possible. If your child is too young to do this meditation, then visualize the light of protection around them. You can use them same visualization, just see them rather than yourself.

Ideally you would want to do this with your psychic child in the morning, and in the evening before bed. After awhile it will become second nature. They can summon the white light whenever they feel vulnerable.

Have fun with it! Create your own variation.

Another way to help your child summon the white light is to draw a picture of the above visualization. Have him, or her draw a self-portrait, with the light all around their body. This is a great way to keep the visualization alive. Whenever your child feels unsafe, they can look at the picture and remember the white light is there when needed.

Stay safe. Have fun!

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).

…more on the explanations for each level is tomorrow…

5 Thoughts for Psychic Etiquette


crystal_ballAIt seems so natural to me — like obvious, I guess. But there are some people out there that do not have a clue about proper psychic dealings with other people. So I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my thoughts on the subject.

Thought 1. Do not jump into other people’s energy fields (auras) with out their permission! This has got to be the most obvious one, but will get a lot of flack from major groups of people (especially those who love the Long Island Medium). To always “receive” information from spirit guides or loved ones of other people shows that you are always open and do not respect boundaries. How would you like it if someone walked into your home, without knocking first, and just rummaged through your underwear drawer and personal financial papers? Does the word “violated” mean anything to you? Of course, you would feel violated! That person had no permission to barge into your home and go through your things.

But that is the same scenario if you barge into someone’s personal space without permission.

Let me be clear: You must ask for permission BEFORE you enter their aura! — not after you already have a message for them.

The energy field (aura) is a place where each of us holds our thoughts, experiences, decisions, and personal feelings. It is sacred space, and not to be entered into without permission.

Thought 2. Keep your spirit communication to yourself. I have witnessed way too many mediums and psychics who continually share what their guides are telling them like it is part of the constitution or something. Really. Everyone has a connection to their Higher Selves and Angels. You do not have to tell us what your guides are telling you. We all have intuition and psychic abilities. (The only time this would be appropriate is during a development circle, when sharing is encouraged.)

Thought 3. Inspire others to unfold or develop in their own time and abilities. We each have our own rate of development and desire may be different than yours.

Thought 4. Always send Light and Love to all people and all situations. If you engage in negative thinking or commenting in a hurtful, vengeful, or even satirical way, you are fueling the growth of more negativity. This actually brings more negativity pulled toward you, in ways you might not have ever imagined.

Thought 5. Keep your own energies as high as you can. You can only benefit from your own spirit connections, when you are sure they are high vibrational entities. To do this, think positive thoughts, keep high values, and always expect the best from others.

Well, this particular vent is over, for now. — I may have to do this on a regular bases!
Blessings…Melissa

A Child’s Near Death Experience


This story was forwarded to me through email. I almost didn’t read it. But I’m glad I did.

You might not believe the story. I choose to believe it as real. I know these things happen. My experiences with people over the years proves to me that there is life after death, as well as near death experiences. And my connections with today’s children only strengthen my belief in this type of situation. I share it with you now:

DAD’ S STORY

On July 22nd I was in route to Washington , DC , for a business trip. It was all so very ordinary, until we landed in Denver for a plane change. As I collected my belongings from the overhead bin, an announcement was made for Mr. Lloyd Glenn to see the United Customer Service Representative immediately.

I thought nothing of it until I reached the door to leave the plane and I heard a gentleman asking every male if he were Mr. Glenn. At this point I knew something was wrong and my heart sunk.

When I got off the plane, a solemn-faced young man came toward me and said, “Mr.Glenn, there is an emergency at your home . I do not know what the emergency is, or who is involved, but I will take you to the phone so you can call the hospital.”

My heart was now pounding, but the will to be calm took over. Woodenly, I followed this stranger to the distant telephone where I called the number he gave me for the Mission Hospital . My call was put through to the trauma center where I learned that my three-year-old son had been trapped underneath the automatic garage door for several minutes and that when my wife had found him he was dead. CPR had been performed by a neighbor, who is a doctor, and the paramedics had continued the treatment as Brian was transported to the hospital.

By the time of my call, Brian was revived and they believed he would live, but they did not know how much damage had been done to his brain, nor to his heart. They explained that the door had completely closed on his little sternum right over his heart. He had been severely crushed. After speaking with the medical staff, my wife sounded worried but not hysterical, and I took comfort in her calmness.

The return flight seemed to last forever, but finally I arrived at the hospital six hours after the garage door had come down. When I walked into the intensive care unit, nothing could have prepared me to see my little son laying so still on a great big bed with tubes and monitors everywhere. He was on a respirator. I glanced at my wife who stood and tried to give me a reassuring smile. It all seemed like a terrible dream. I was filled-in with the details and given a guarded prognosis. Brian was going to live, and the preliminary tests indicated that his heart was OK, two miracles in and of themselves. But only time would tell if his brain received any damage.

Throughout the seemingly endless hours, my wife was calm. She felt that Brian would eventually be all right. I hung on to her words and faith like a lifeline. All that night and the next day Brian remained unconscious. It seemed like forever since I had left for my business trip the day before.

Finally at two o’clock that afternoon, our son regained consciousness and sat up uttering the most beautiful words I have ever heard spoken.. He said, “Daddy hold me” and he reached for me with his little arms.

By the next day he was pronounced as having no neurological or physical deficits, and the story of his miraculous survival spread throughout the hospital. You cannot imagine, when we took Brian home, we felt a unique reverence for the life and love of our Heavenly Father that comes to those who brush death so closely.

In the days that followed, there was a special spirit about our home . Our two older children were much closer to their little brother. My wife and I were much closer to each other, and all of us were very close as a whole family. Life took on a less stressful pace. Perspective seemed to be more focused and balance much easier to gain and maintain. We felt deeply blessed. Our gratitude was truly profound.

The story is not over (smile)!

Almost a month later to the day of the accident, Brian awoke from his afternoon nap and said, “Sit down Mommy.. I have something to tell you.” At this time in his life, Brian usually spoke in small phrases, so to say a large sentence surprised my wife. She sat down with him on his bed, and he began his sacred and remarkable story.

“Do you remember when I got stuck under the garage door? Well, it was so heavy and it hurt really bad. I called to you but you couldn’t hear me. I started to cry, but then it hurt too bad. And then the ‘ birdies ‘ came.”

“The birdies?” my wife asked puzzled.

“Yes,” he replied. “The birdies made a whooshing sound and flew into the garage. They took care of me.”

“They did?”

“Yes,” he said. “One of the birdies came and got you. She came to tell you. “I got stuck under the door.” A sweet reverent feeling filled the room. The spirit was so strong and yet lighter than air. My wife realized that a three-year-old had no concept of death and spirits, so he was referring to the beings who came to him from beyond as “birdies” because they were up in the air like birds that fly. “What did the birdies look like?” she asked.

Brian answered, “They were so beautiful. They were dressed in white, all white. Some of them had green and white. But some of them had on just white.”

“Did they say anything?”

“Yes,” he answered. “They told me the baby would be all right.”

“The baby?” my wife asked confused.

Brian answered. “The baby laying on the garage floor.” He went on, “You came out and opened the garage door and ran to the baby. You told the baby to stay and not leave.”

My wife nearly collapsed upon hearing this, for she had indeed gone and knelt beside Brian’s body and seeing his crushed chest whispered, “Don’t leave us Brian, please stay if you can.” As she listened to Brian telling her the words she had spoken, she realized that the spirit had left his body and was looking down from above on this little lifeless form. “Then what happened?” she asked.

“We went on a trip,” he said, “far, far away.” He grew agitated trying to say the things he didn’t seem to have the words for. My wife tried to calm and comfort him, and let him know it would be okay. He struggled with wanting to tell something that obviously was very important to him, but finding the words was difficult.

“We flew so fast up in the air. They’re so pretty Mommy,” he added. “And there are lots and lots of birdies.” My wife was stunned. Into her mind the sweet comforting spirit enveloped her more soundly, but with an urgency she had never before known. Brian went on to tell her that the “birdies” had told him that he had to come back and tell everyone about the “birdies.” He said they brought him back to the house and that a big fire truck and an ambulance were there. A man was bringing the baby out on a white bed and tried to tell the man that the baby would be okay. The story went on for an hour.

He taught us that “birdies” were always with us, but we don’t see them because we look with our eyes and we don’t hear them because we listen with our ears. But they are always there, you can only see them in here (he put his hand over his heart). They whisper the things to help us to do what is right because they love us so much. Brian continued, stating, “I have a plan, Mommy. You have a plan.. Daddy has a plan. Everyone has a plan. We must all live our plan and keep our promises. The birdies help us to do that cause they love us so much.”

In the weeks that followed, he often came to us and told all, or part of it, again and again. Always the story remained the same. The details were never changed or out of order. A few times he added further bits of information and clarified the message he had already delivered. It never ceased to amaze us how he could tell such detail and speak beyond his ability when he talked about his birdies.

Everywhere he went, he told strangers about the “birdies.” Surprisingly, no one ever looked at him strangely when he did this. Rather, they always got a softened look on their face and smiled. Needless to say, we have not been the same ever since that day, and I pray we never will be.

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.

Spirit Messages


Spirit Circle of Love

Last night I was at the All Message Service at the small spiritualist church in our town, TheCircleOfLightAnd Love.com .  Charles and I were the founding board members of the church many years ago, and we support it whenever we are in town.

The All Message Service is a gathering of people who are interested in receiving messages from spirit loved ones, guides and guardian angels. In this particular service, everyone sits in a circle. Several mediums from the church take turns giving spirit messages to the attendees.

If you have ever seen mediums like John Edward and Sylvia Browne give gallery messages, then you have a good idea of what I am describing. The Gallery Messages seen on television are very similar to the way spiritualist churches give message demonstrations during their regular church service.

This particular event, The All Message Service, is once a month and does not include the orthodox Sunday-style service. There is a song sung to raise the vibrations and a prayer for protection and invocation. Then the message sharing begins.

The group has gotten so big over the years, we have had to make two circles. Luckily, the church has plenty of mediums to serve the group. I remember one particular message I gave to one of the attendees. Without giving her name, or any personal information (which would be very unethical), I can share a piece of the message.  It is very interesting how mediums and psychics receive information, and this is a great example.

As I asked the woman’s name (an excellent way to connect with her vibrations~~just by saying her name, she opens her aura to allow connection), I saw my favorite Aunt Elizabeth, who has been in spirit for many years. I told the woman I was reading for there was a very sweet lady in the spirit, who was very close to her by the name of Elizabeth. Then I told her how the name came to me. I always like to share the source, if appropriate.

Immediately she perked up and said that Elizabeth was her daughter who passed away about two years ago. She was very pleased to be contacted by her. After giving more information to her, I closed the message. And privately I thanked Aunt Elizabeth for her assistance.

It always amazes me the way our spirit loved ones and spirit guides bring information to us. Quite often, you might think it is only your imagination and not a real spirit connection. But just remember you are working with “subtle energy”. You will get your information in a subtle way. Rarely does it come in a booming voice, or wild spectacular visions.

It is presented in the most normal way you could recognize it. Once you start working with vibrations and spirit energies, they present themselves to the spirit body, rather than the physical body. So you have to be aware of different levels of recognition.

That is why I enjoy teaching Spiritual Awakening Classes.  No matter what level of ability the class members are, they have many tools to practice with and understand how their guides and higher self communicates with them.

(added 7/7/2012)My new book, Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern-Day Mystics is now available.  The website is  Psychic Integrity . You can read a excerpt there from the book, or order it. It is another excellent tool for psychic and medium unfoldment and integrity.

Blessings and Peace!
