Can You Benefit from Psychic Online Classes?


Why would you want to take online classes for psychic development?
1. You can progress at your own rate.
2. Meditate when you have the time.
3. You don’t live near a metaphysical bookstore or development circle.
4. You need a little nudge to help you move forward in your studies.

Sign up now at http://www.psychiconlineclasses.com and immediately receive a FREE Introductory Lesson to get you started.

I’ve been teaching psychic/mediumship classes in one way or another for over 11 years and have lectured and presented workshops since around 1990. During this time I have realized that many people want to develop their gifts and abilities but sometimes need a little support or encouragement. Sometimes they can’t get to local groups or have the right timing to attend them.

That’s when I decided to provide lessons in video form to present online. And create guided meditations in audio to compliment that lesson. Each monthly lesson is different and does not follow any particular progressive plan. So they are intuitively created for the time frame and needs of the class.

Can’t make it to local classes? Then this option is just for you! Self Study as You Want It! For those of you who want to study with Melissa Leath, but live too far away to attend onsite classes, this is a wonderful way for you to participate in your own self-development, only in a closed, private group. Held once a month, with projects to keep you working at home. They are for unfoldment and development of psychic awareness and mediumship awakening. Both novice and seasoned students benefit from these classes. A warm and safe environment has come from these classes and all are welcome.

YOU CAN START AT ANYTIME

You can join anytime during the month and will be sent directly to your Free Introductory Class. Then, on the first week of the month, you get your monthly class packet.

Who should attend? — Have you been getting psychic “hits” at different times of the day? Do you think you are psychic, but not sure? Are you interested in gaining control over this gift? Would you like to share with others of like-mind, in a safe environment? Then this is the class for you.

    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

    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!

    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

    Part 2: 9 More Fool Proof Ways to Communicate with Your Spirit Guides (The Rest of the Story)


    thirdeyeFor Part One please click here>> https://thegobetween.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/9-fool-proof-ways-to-connect-with-your-spirit-guides-part-1/

    Since you have been practicing your meditations, now you can get busy with the development process. So here are some more things you can add to the meditation:

    1.) It will not happen overnight. And believe it or not, this is the best way to do it! You start to realize that to connect with your spirit guides, the process will happen slowly. Allow your guides to bring the energies you need to develop properly.

    2.) Find your own style. Do not expect your spirit connection to be the same as anyone else’s. Your guides hold a special energy unique to them. And you work with energies in your own special way, too. So as you develop, your gifts will be totally different. You may only see with your inner vision (clairvoyance); or, only hear with your inner ears (clairaudience); or feel with your inner senses (clairsentience); or even a combination of these. Or you may only receive information in your dreamtime, for example.

    3.) Move into an awareness-state. This is when your body is relaxed and you feel removed from it. Your mind is relaxed, too (all stress is gone and the cares of the day are not bothering you). But you are still wide awake and aware of things around you. If you go to sleep at this point, you will miss the development and spirit connection you are looking for. So stay awake and aware.

    Remember the “subtle” things we talked about in Part One of this blog? You need to be aware of what is happening so you can witness it.

    4.) Look for the Movement Response. After sitting for a period of 15-20 minutes, and clearing your mind of superficial self-talk, focus on your breathing. Allow the pathway between your conscious self and spirit self to open.

    Soon after sitting on a daily basis, different parts of the body, such as, fingers, head, or torso, will move without you purposely making them move. You may start to notice that your body is moving without your conscious request. (I call this the Movement Response.)

    5.) Use this for the Alignment of Spirit. After a regular practice, you will eventually receive this movement response. This lets you know that you are truly in the communication mode with your inner being: The alignment has taken place. Communication is activated, but still in a primitive stage. Enjoy the wonder of these moments. They may be short and far between, but will continue to grow.

    6.) Ask your guide to step into your energy field. As you become familiar with this meditation process, you will need to know when your own spirit guide is near you. You will then be sure that the information is from your guide and not another entity (or your ego mind). Even if you do not know who your guide is, ask them to come into your energy field.

    As you are in meditation awareness, ask your guide to step into your energy field. Sense what that feels like. Then ask them to step out of your energy. As they move away, sense the difference. One more time… ask them to step into your field again. And then out. You will sense a major difference. Usually, as they are in your energy, the vibration will be faster.

    7.) Ask for a Recognition Response. Now, as your guide is in your energy field, ask them to give you some physical kind of recognition. This could be a tap on your head, or a breeze over your face, or a brush of energy on your shoulder/arm. Repeat the process of asking them in your field and giving you recognition. Now, you will know for sure when your guide is near you, with information for you.

    8.) Now you have a wonder tool chest to start working with your guides. When you know for sure that your guide is around you in meditation, start by asking one question. Wait for the answer. Do not overload with more than one question. You might get some kind of answer. But you might not get anything right away. It might be a day or two, when you least expect it for the answer to come.

    9.) Look for your spirit answers in odd places. Just realize that you might not get an answer like in a real conversation. You might see the answer to your question in a cloud formation; Or in a television commercial; A friend might call you on the phone and talk about something that leads you to your answer. But it is all part of the process of letting and allowing Spirit to come into your life.

    Your spirit guides are always around you. And these two articles are only the starting thoughts of how to communicate with your guides. But if you follow these points, you will be on your way to creating the most wonderful relationship you have ever had: knowing and communicating with your Spirit Guides.

    For more, in depth information, and a complete directive on Spirit Communication and Psychic Development, please refer to my book, “Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics” (Balboa Press, a division of Hay House Publishing) available at Amazon.com. Many private development circles are using this book for reference in their practice.

    9 Fool Proof Ways to Connect with Your Spirit Guides, Part 1.


    alone graphic
    Your spirit guides are around you. Whether you know it or not. You might not have ever realized that you had guides. But they are there, just the same. And they are always ready for connecting with you. They are there to guide and support you in any endeavor you have.

    But many people mistakenly think that it is too difficult to communicate with or hear from their guides. Here are a few tips that make it possible for you to open yourself enough to have a real, meaningful relationship with your own guiding forces.

    1. Is it Spirit or your Chatty Ego-Mind? It’s time to really listen to your thoughts during the day. Are they random? Do they sound like loving support or disjointed gossip? Are your thoughts like a rerun of a rerun of a soap opera? Does your mind jump from one haphazard thought to another without you even realizing it? This is the Ego-Mind. Ego is important in our lives, but when you allow it to rule your thoughts, you lose out on some really important things: like making your own decisions in a responsible way, and being open to your guides in spirit. Ego-Mind can be unruly. Time to tame that beast and be in control of your mind, and the thoughts you choose to think.

    2. Tame the beast? How? Spend the whole day tracking your thoughts. Take notes every time you have a new thought – good or bad. You will soon realize that many of your thoughts are not very high-minded. But you follow repeats of what you thought yesterday. You “catch” many thought patterns that are really just floating by you. Or your mind could be “following” the thoughts of those you hang out with.

    Okay. I know you think I have gotten off the subject here, but bear with me for a minute. I am leading to something very important.

    3. Sit quietly for a few minutes everyday. The connection you have with your guides is a very subtle one. So you have to clear out all the drama stuff to make a sweet space for spirit to reside. Ten minutes a day should be sufficient enough to open that channel.

    4. Schedule that sweet space for the same time everyday. That helps your mind and body prepare, or get used to, being available for the connection. Spirit does not need the appointment, but you do!

    5. Make a regular thing Everyday, sit at the same time. Regularity is important. It will become a habit, or regular ritual that you will cherish. Consistency is the key. You will always be ready and open at the same time every day!

    6. State your intentions. As you sit quietly, talk to your guides as if you already know them. (This is usually like a conversation in your mind with yourself.) Say something like: “I am now quiet and open to receive information and connections with you, my guides.” Take the lead. Letting them know you are ready is important.

    7. Take a big breath. Breathing is a key to this thing. By breathing, you release a certain amount of control. You relax. And by relaxing, you don’t expect anything, but allow something to happen.

    8. Just sit quietly. Now is when you listen with your heart, not your ears. You receive with your heart, not your mind. This is not a physical thing going on. It is a spiritual thing.

    9. Your guides are always there giving information and teachings. But if you are not tuned into the Spirit Connection, you will miss it. Now you are open and ready for any small thing to happen: the feeling of a feather on your nose; a color flashing in your inner vision; a song come into your mind; or a sweet fragrance breezing by. They will not be big, loud things from Spirit. They will be subtle.

    Now you can work with this exercise for a few weeks. Record all the things you think you felt, saw or heard. Any small thing is just as important as a large thing.

    Soon, I will share the Part 2 to this exercise. Now is the time for you to practice!

    What to Do If You’re Going to a Seance


    seanceThe whole idea of a séance can be a scary one if you haven’t had any experience with them. I was lucky enough to sit in many séances in the 1980s an 90s in the little Spiritualist church I belonged to. Visiting mediums came at different times during the year to offer sermons, private readings, and what we all waited for: séances.

    Being connected with a Spiritualist church bypassed the worries of being bombarded with evil spirits and haunted by ghouls and unwelcome creatures from hell! We knew this was a spiritual endeavor and always surrounded with Light and Love, protected by our individual Spirit Guides and Angels.

    But for you, who may not have been so fortunate, and perhaps have heard of disturbing tales of fear and possession, let me give you a few tips for attending a séance — just in case you ever get the chance to attend one.

    How do you prepare for attending a séance? Or do you even have to do anything? Of course you do. Here are a few tips for you to think about before you plan on going to a séance:

  • Investigate the medium and sponsor involved.
    Make sure you know the medium that will be giving the séance. Are they reputable? do they have a spiritual character? I am not emphasizing religion here, rather, spirituality. The medium should have a good standing with metaphysical people in the area, and be known for producing empowering sessions. If you cannot find anyone who knows the medium, or can speak well of them, then pass this one by. The same thing goes for the person involved in sponsoring the medium and location of the event. These things all matter in the outcome.
  • Know what type of séance is being held.
    There are so many different types of séances and ways to present them. True old fashioned séances always took place in total darkness. But there are some mediums that are able to produce phenomena in the light. I have witnessed this and it is very powerful to see! This way, you can pretty much rule out fakery (and, yes, I have seen this too). Just a few of the different types are: deep trance which can include physical mediumship with direct voice, levitation, independent writing or painting, partial or full materialization of spirit bodies or apports (objects that materialize out of thin air), etc. Sometimes these things can be accomplished through mental mediumship as well.

    Sometimes mental mediums will call a séance in a circle and just give spirit messages. I do not consider this a séance, but I would call it a Spirit Circle.

  • Do not give away too much information.
    Keep your personal information to yourself. To prove to yourself that the séance is legitimate, make sure you do not spread the word that your grandmother just passed away two weeks ago, for instance. This type of information has been known to be used to fake a séance (or reading). There was much talk about John Edward and other mediums when they had television galleries, etc. People said that there were spies in the crowd that gathered before the shows, and would collect names and stories from the audience before hand. Whether this really happened or not I do not know. I just remember the talk about it. I have always held John Edward in high esteem. I just give him as a example. So if you do not give away any personal information, you can be sure of truth when there is spirit evidence presented.
  • Raise your vibrations.
    Before you go, spend some time grounding yourself and thinking loving thoughts. Keep a positive attitude. Ask that you be protected with Light and Love and that you only receive positive and uplifting energy and information.
  • Bring your spirit loved ones with you.
    Ask the loved ones that have passed away or your spirit guides to be there and leave messages. You will get much better results if you take your spirit entourage with you. That helps the medium to connect easier.
  • Don’t cause a disturbance, be respectful.
    When entering into a séance, the medium and the spirits work off of energy. so it is important for you to be positive, and greet the spirits when they present themselves. When a spirit might greet you by saying hello, return the greeting! That is only respectful! And you get a better connection that way. No matter what is going on, even if you feel it might be a faked séance, please remain calm and respectful. There is no reason to lay blame or bring about a heavy or negative vibration.
  • Well, that should be a few great tips for you! If you decide to go to a séance or a Spirit Circle, I hope you remember these ideas.
