Experiencing the World with Your Psychic Senses, by Shaheen Miro.

(Part of the “Kids Growing Up Psychic” Series).

Melissa’s Note: I am so happy to introduce to you my dear friend and fellow metaphysician, Shaheen Miro. He has agreed to be Guest Writer for my Blog and we, together, are presenting a Series of monthly articles called “Kids Growing Up Psychic”. Enjoy this very first, fascinating article!

Did you know that you came here as a spiritual being in a physical body? You are a beautiful, vibrant and divine spirit that is here to experience all sorts of wonderful, and sometimes crazy things. This world is meant to bring you closer to your core, your own unique vibration and allow you to learn and grow.

When we first come into this world, as little precious and pure babies, we are very connected to the spiritual truth that lies within each of us. This connection begins to wither over time, and sadly, for some people it dies. This can create a disconnect among adults and children… because they still see all the beautiful worlds around them through their spiritual eyes.

On this journey into the physical we are given a special navigation system. This intrinsic system is meant to guide us through life with ease, allowing us to gain the most experience and joy we can without being knocked off course too much. This is our intuition.

When you allow your intuition to fully develop and bloom, you will experience things through your psychic senses. These are the fine-tuned spiritual senses (much like our 5 physical senses) that allow you to perceive and interact with different vibrations and subtle realms.

A lot of parents find it very difficult to relate to their children’s psychic experiences because as an adult you may not be very in tune with the spiritual world. This isn’t a criticism, just a simple truth. The great “psychic forgetting” is a byproduct of our society’s relentless pursuit to disconnect us from our psychic centers.

So when your child begins to talk about invisible friends, prophetic dreams, or seems to know things that they shouldn’t, you may be caught off guard, and you may instantly want to dismiss everything they are saying as “imagination”, or worse, a lie!

Don’t fall down the path of criticizing your psychic child; don’t continue the cycle because it is time for us to embrace our spiritual self. You at one time, and maybe even now, were very aware of the spiritual world that is unfolding all around. If that would’ve been nurtured in you… your psychic senses could have been an invaluable toolkit helping you navigate through life!

Side note: even if you feel closed off to your psychic self… you can awaken your psychic senses, and begin to grow, strengthen, and trust them! It is never too late. It all starts with paying attention and listening. As you work with your child, you will begin to grow yourself.

We all feel the chaotic energy in the world right now. A lot of fatalistic points of view are floating around out there. And it is true, some people have gone a little crazy, and there is some very dark energy. But the Universe/Divine always knows more than what we can see… and part of that plan is bringing in more and more “awake” children.

Children are coming in awake and aware of the psychic world, and their spiritual gifts. They are relentless in keeping their connection to that world, and rather than allowing society to condition them to forget, many are fighting back. They are the paradigm shift!

There are many different names, and classifications: Indigo, crystal, rainbow… the truth is that everyone is born a psychic child, and if we nurture this in our children, they will grow into even more amazing, vibrant and empowered adults!

So let’s talk about the psychic centers, and ways to understand your child’s psychic experiences.

Does your child ever play with an invisible friend? Or talk to people who aren’t there? Or seem to follow around something you can’t see? Or favor a particular room, corner, or area? Or maybe even reports seeing lights, or sparkles?

Those are psychic experiences.

Or does your child talk about people, places, or periods of time that they should have no real knowledge of? Past, present or future? Maybe your child makes matter-of-fact announcements about things that make no sense to you, and later they turn out to be facts. Or does your child dream of things, or people that are eerily accurate descriptions?

Those are also psychic experiences.

Some of these things may leave you baffled, confused, and a little afraid. You may try to rationalize it, or discredit it. Take a different approach, try to accept and nurture it. Your disregard for your child’s experience will leave them feeling judged, and feeling vulnerable. Just as much as you might not believe in it, they do!

Your child will experience spiritual phenomena through 7 psychic centers. These are called the “Clair Senses”, Clair being the French world for clear. These senses mirror our physical senses, but they pick up more subtle information.

The psychic centers work with energetic frequencies. Psychic/spiritual information is constantly moving and pulsating through the atmosphere. This information vibrates as different frequencies, like a radio wave. These vibrations are much higher, and faster than anything we experience in the physical, so the psychic senses pick up on them.

Because a child is still very aware and connected to the spiritual world, they are easily in tune with these frequencies, and they have no problem connecting to them. Very much like animals. It is instinctual and intrinsic. They are essentially walking between worlds, completely open and receptive to the things that are happening around them.

Most children have psychic experiences that are seamless with their perception of the world. There is nothing out of the ordinary to them, and often their Clair senses will overlap with their physical senses. They perceive these frequencies of information through one, or more of the Clair senses.

There are six senses, but the first three of them are the most common that children experience.

Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance (clear sight) is the ability to psychically see things. Sometimes this term will be used incorrectly to describe any psychic sense. A child will often see an entity, whether it is a ghost, spirit, fairy, angel, or anything else in the spectrum of spiritual entities in the Astral world.

Clairvoyance isn’t limited to entities, when I was a child I often saw buildings as they were in the past, and other places in time. There was an old field near where I grew up, and when we use to drive past I would see horses, wagons and people who had been hurt and bleeding. My mom believed I was seeing some kind of imprint from a past battle. I would also go into buildings and see the original interior.

For a child it can be very scary and disorienting when they are telling you they see something, and you don’t acknowledge it. Make sure you listen closely at what they are describing to you. It may hold some importance for you. And you may want to help shield them from certain types of energy, or places.

Visions, and premonitions can fall under this category as well. Even now, as a reader, I will see flashes of things when I am sitting with someone. It is usually like a movie moving through my head. Sometimes these experiences can move from my “mind” into the physical.

Clairsentience

Clairsentience (clear feeling) is the ability to feel things psychically. This is one of the most common psychic senses, and typically remains the most active in people even when they’ve disconnected from their psychic self.

Feeling things psychically has become a part of our general speech… “That doesn’t feel right.” “Something feels off.” “I get a bad vibe about this.” “That doesn’t set well with me.” “My gut is telling me…”

Clairsentience works with the solar plexus, which is the area below the breastbone and above the navel. This is our gut. Your child filters energy, and experiences through the solar plexus, and it comes across as a feeling. This is especially true when dealing with people, thoughts, and emotions.

Your child may seem very sensitive to certain types of environments, buildings, people and situations. This is the result of them taking on the energy of the environment. It is sometimes called, empathy!

As a child I would often get physically ill when I was in an overly populated area, such as a theme park, or other major social setting. I learned to recognize when I was taking on an energy that wasn’t my own at an early age. It also became clear to me that certain things could shield my solar plexus, such as a thick jacket, blanket, or even a special necklace.

If your child suddenly changes moods, or becomes uncomfortable for no reasons, they are most likely picking up on energy in an area. This is usually the reason they want you to hold them with their stomach facing you, or why they are crossing their arms, or holding onto their security teddy/blanket for dear life!

Claircognizance

Claircongnizance (clear knowing) is the ability to have certain knowledge or information without any “logical” way of knowing. This is one of my favorite abilities to see a child display because children are so naturally blunt and unapologetic!

They usually just make announcements of things that, at the time, seem very off the wall… and later prove to be true!

This sometimes gets kids into trouble because they don’t know the difference between something that has been told to them, and something that has been infused into their mind. So big secrets are sometimes told, or lies exposed because they are in the minds and hearts of the people around them… and they pick up on it!

Claircongnizance is typically how a child experiences information about past lives, past events about a person or place, or something happening somewhere else in the world. They just know because they are psychically linking into the stream of knowledge that is floating around the world like a glowing network of webs.

Warning: Don’t try to tell your child something that they know to be true is wrong… if you know it isn’t! Because they will be relentless with the truth. If your child exposes something that he, or she shouldn’t know, acknowledge it and move on quickly. Nothing is more funny than arguing the truth with a psychic 5 year old!

Psychic knowing gives a deeper understanding of spiritual things about past lives, and other realms of the Astral world. If a child is young enough, or open enough, you can usually get them to talk about the Other Side, or things they experienced in lives before. Just ask them!

Clairaudience

Clairaudience (clear hearing) is the ability to hear things psychically. Usually this manifests as a conversation with some type of entity, or hearing things psychically imprinted upon a space. You may have had a clairaudient experience of hearing someone calling your name, and no one is there.

I have found that clairaudience usually goes along with Clairvoyance. A child sees a guide or entity, and they can speak to it. But children will often hear things, without having a visual experience. This can be very frightening for a child when they hear something speaking to them, but can’t see it.

Though, most clairaudient experiences are usually a child’s spirit guides trying to communicate with them. Their guides are there to love, protect and instruct them along their path throughout their entire life.

Children don’t always experience disembodied voices; they can psychically hear strong thoughts, or very intense conversations being had behind closed doors, or in other places. Depending on what frequency they are tapping into, or the atmosphere they are in.

Clairalience

Clairalience (clear smell) is the ability to smell something on psychic level. Usually a child will smell something associated with a person from the past, or someone who will be making an appearance. This can be anything from a departed loved ones perfume, to their favorite cigar, or a food that is associated with them.

Scents can come across through as a prediction. I have psychically smelled things that warned of coming events, involving disasters and situations with people. Again, listen to things you child might be saying, even if they sound peculiar.

Some children will experience a scent when they are being visited by a grandparent in spirit, or a spirit guide or angel. This can be something very distinct like a certain type of flower, or something very favorable to them.

Clairalience often comes prior to, or during other psychic experiences.

Clairgustance

Clairgustance (clear taste) is the ability to taste something psychically. This is one of the more rare occurrences, and is closely connected to Clairalience. Clairgustance can be connected to any number of psychic experiences, but it usually accompanies a more prominent psychic sense.

A child could taste anything from a favorite candy connected to grandma or grandpa, or something that may affect them at a later date… such as a meal that might upset their tummy.

In Closing:

I find that most children experience Clairvoyance, Claircongnizance, and Clairsentience more often than the other psychic senses. Usually the other 3 senses will accompany one of the more prominent senses, helping to refine and add to the psychic encounter.

Each child is unique. They may display only one of the senses, or a combination of all of them. Different encounters may trigger different senses. Being aware of all of the psychic receivers will help you to understand whatever your child may be going through better.

Follow these Simple Guidelines with Your Psychic Child:

  • Always LISTEN! Whatever your child is experiencing is very real to them. Listen to what they say, and take note of the details. Don’t try to lead them to any particular conclusion. Just let them share their experience.
  • Never assume! The information a child is receiving can sometimes seem foreign to them, and may be fragmented depending on the source. Sometimes you have to let things play out to make sense.
  • Be encouraging. If a particular psychic experience seems important to your child, and it doesn’t seem harmful, then encourage them to use their gift. As they connect to Spirit, you begin to connect.
  • Keep your child safe. If you know your child has extreme psychic experiences be mindful of the settings you put them in. Extreme emotions or high-energy situations may trigger their senses in a negative way.
  • Create a system. Give your child an easy way to signal that they are having an experience. If your child sees a particular entity, and it frightens him or her, they could cross their arms, or close their eyes. Some mannerism that signals that they are experiencing a psychic presence. Add a safety net to this. Maybe they have a special bear that they can hold when they feel psychically overstimulated.

Now that you know the basics of the psychic centers, you can watch how they unfold I your child. Your sacred duty as a parent is to listen to your child, and help them learn to use their gift in the everyday, waking world!

All the best,

REVIEW: My Gift, A Book for Children Who See Spirit (Elana Whyte, author).


MyGiftBookCover

My Gift, A Book for Children Who See Spirit

Elana Whyte has written a loving story of a little boy who sees his late grandfather. He is just a regular little boy, but realizes he is able to see things that others might not.

It addresses being scared sometimes, and knowing that it is alright to be scared. And explains in very easy to understand ideas about life after death, and how to be in control of their spirit gift.

The artwork is done so beautifully, and shows what a “see-through” spirit would look like without being scary.

This book is a wonderful addition to a child’s bookshelf, and helps parents to introduce a conversation that might otherwise be difficult for them.

I recommend this sweet book as a teaching tool for parents, teachers, and relatives of children who have displayed knowledge or vision that is considered out of the ordinary. If you are a worried parent about your child, your child might be worried too. This will help all concerned in reaching an understanding.

Why Do People Believe in Ghosts? Repost.


Do you believe in ghosts?

Do you believe in ghosts?

Do you believe in Ghosts? Do you know what a Spirit is? There is so much confusion and misunderstanding between the two things. I find this article posted on The Atlantic Website very interesting. The author, Tiffanie Wen, shares why she thinks people believe in ghosts and how we see something as being para-normal. And even though she ponders the idea of ghosts exclusively, there really is no mention of Spirits.

Check out her article here >>>

http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/09/why-do-people-believe-in-ghosts/379072/

Now, after you have read that post, check out my workshop video that explains the difference between ghosts and Spirits. (Hint: Ghosts are still Earthbound, and Spirits have transcended into the full Spirit World, leaving the Earth experience behind.) Also explored is why Ghosts stay Earthbound. Yes, there are many reasons!

Here is the link to the workshop information: http://www.melissaleath.com/ghostDescription.html

This workshop covers a wide range of information about ghosts and spirits, and understanding what the difference is between them. Spirits are loved ones or other former human beings who have lived on the earth. They are now in the spirit world and have gone through the entire process of transformation. A ghost is a lost spirit that has not fully embraced the transformation into the spirit world. It remains attached to earthly things or people in an attempt to re-assimilate.

Also covered is:

  • Why are they earthbound? What keeps them trapped?
  • Understanding the Death Process, and the shifting place between “earthbound” and “in-spirit”.
  • Discussion on clean spirit – unclean spirit, as related in the Bible.
  • Hauntings: What can you do? What is a residual haunting?
  • Is there a moral obligation to clearing spirit energies from a haunted place?

    This lecture covers so much information, you will want to listen to it over and over. The lecture is followed by questions and answers.

    I hope you enjoy it! http://www.melissaleath.com/ghostDescription.html

How You Can Talk to Heaven, Part Two

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

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

The Seven Planes of Existence

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

True Mediumistic Communication

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

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

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

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

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

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

Opening Up

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understanding the Chain of Command

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

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

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!

Children Seeing Sparkles: The Book is Done!


PsyKidsBookCoverFront

Well, as I promised, the book I have been working on low these many days is finished! Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Kids is available for you on Amazon.com.

Available in Paperback here>>> Amazon Bookseller

Kindle EBook version is available here>>> Amazon Kindle

Empathic and psychic children are seeing things: Sparkles, Orbs, Spirits, and Ghosts. What is a parent to do? Don’t worry; Melissa Leath has it covered. She has been asked by parents about Sparkles (as the kids call them). And she has gone on a quest to find the answers.

This book covers spirit energies, auras, subtle bodies, hyper-sensitive and empathic children and information on indigo and crystal children. There are excerpts from blog articles that started the search for the meaning of Sparkles, along with some of the comments that followed.
PsyKidsBookCoverBack
Within this book, Melissa uncovers the concept of Sparkles, spirit lights, and other paranormal occurrences and visions seen by children. Are they apparitions or true experiences? Included are exercises to practice with your child, examples to help expand their ability in a healthy and empowering way, and ideas to implement in your families’ daily routine.

“Sparkles” is filled with real life experiences from parents and their children; their fears and victories, along with Leath’s shared knowledge and explanations.

Why children see entities that are invisible to us.


ghost sample -beautiful-blur22
Since I am finalizing the editing and such with my newest book, Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Children, I thought it a good idea to share some more of the book with you.

Many parents have a difficult time realizing that their child might really be seeing something that they are not. Just because it is not visible to you, does not make it invisible! And here is my explanation of that idea:

“As we become adults, we develop a different perception of reality. As adults, we are programmed to discard certain images, noises, and feelings as unreal, especially if they are not scientifically proven or socially accepted. Many of us have programmed our intellect to doubt our intuition. Most children have not had the chance to train their perception to correspond with these adult versions.”

Imaginary Friends
“Many parents teach their children at a very young age to block psychic images. Humans feel better when we all experience things in similar ways. They may tell their children that imaginary friends are not real, and that visions are just bad dreams. This sends a message to the child that they should mistrust what they actually experience, and instead rely on adult reality. It robs children of a sense of self-trust that they will definitely need to find their way in the world.

“We all have telepathic abilities and use this as a method of communication to send messages even when we are not aware of doing so. You may think of an old friend that you haven’t connected with in years and in the next day or so you get an email or phone call from them. The two of you connected telepathically (which I like to call the Field of Synchronicity) and this mental “signal” brought about an urge to take action and connect physically.

Parallel Universes
“But many children are experiencing much more than that. They may unconsciously move between both the psychic realms and the physical realms at the same time. They may even recognize parallel universes, alternate realities, and multiple dimensions all layered together at once. They may not be able to distinguish between our familiar third dimension and the many layers of “other worlds”. It becomes difficult to make sense of it all, or to even know that other people do not experience it the same way!

“As a result, your child may see spirit beings or entities from other dimensions or realities right in front of their eyes, (not knowing that our “normal” vision doesn’t register this anomaly).

“This is not only challenging and confusing for children, but perhaps overwhelming in a more material world where psychic and spiritual phenomena are rarely acknowledged.
Kids That See Sparkles

“Many of these kids are so psychically aware, yet their parents and role models usually are not. So they may develop different types of troubling behaviors to help them cope with their situation, and to teach adults what might be going on with them.”

Does Your Child See Sparkles? will be available the end of August. Don’t worry! I’ll be letting you know about it.
