Bringing Out the Best in Yourself and Others

Joshua and FrankPeople thrive when compassion and love is extended toward them. I have always said that all Spirit needs, both here and in Heaven, is compassion and love.

People are fascinating. I love learning about each individual that I meet because everyone has such interesting and incredible stories, as well as talents and abilities, that bring wonder and light to this world. What I find, though, is that people get so caught up in negativity and everyday concerns that they forget all of those wonderful qualities that they do have and they forget to take the time to enjoy the activities that make their souls sing.

When interacting with people, be it the cashier at the convenience store or your best friend, the more genuine you are with yourself, the more you are genuine with others. It doesn’t matter if it is a one-minute or one-hour conversation, just be yourself and your own light will already be shining. When this happens, there is an ease of knowing who you are that allows you to speak with others from the heart. It is amazing to see how people light up and open up when you speak from your heart to their heart…you can see how their light shines brighter around them.

Heartfelt communication is about empathy, relating, listening, sharing and responding. Understanding and compassion come through when you take the time to truly acknowledge a fellow soul. It is the kindness that you bestow upon others in your interactions that uplift another soul, as well your own.

If you are having a bad day and your mood is really sour, try to take a moment before you spread that negativity to the next person you meet. Acknowledge to yourself that you are having a rough time and let go of the angst. If you need to talk to a friend to help you work through the issues, do just that. As for the many people you come into contact with throughout your day, do your best to consciously decide not to pass on that black cloud to someone else. Again, if you need help getting through a rough patch, ask for help from your friends and family. That is one of the reasons why they are in your life, to help you and for you to help them as we work though the many complex issues and lessons that we learn as our souls evolve.

The next time you meet someone, speak from the heart. Ask how they are doing and mean it. Think about what it is like to be them and what it would mean to you if someone was genuinely interested in what you had to say. You will be amazed at how easy it is to connect with other souls on a genuine level and how good it feels to be yourself. The person you communicate with benefits as well, because you are giving them the gift of compassion which brightens their day.

Namaste!

With Light and Love,

Receiving Messages from Spirit Using the Five Clairs

To communicate with us, Spirit utilizes our five main senses, as well as our databank of memories. All of us, not just Mediums, can be receivers of messages from Spirit. It is a matter being open and receptive to the messages that are being sent, as well as a well-developed intuitive sense, that allows you to recognize them.

As with Mediums, you may be naturally stronger with the receipt of messages through certain senses than with others. For example, you may be more visually-oriented than feeling-oriented. After you have explored your natural abilities and gifts, you can begin to work on improving your skills with the rest.

SensesBrief Definitions and Examples of the Five Clairs

Clairvoyance
Clairvoyance is the visual receipt of information from Spirit. This occurs when we see Spirit or signs from Spirit. For those with this gift, we actually see Spirit manifested or images (motion or still) sent by Spirit in our mind’s eye, also known as the Third Eye. Visual messages from Spirit can also include signs in this world that let you know that Spirit is near. Some of the more common and easy to spot include finding coins on the ground, seeing butterflies or dragonflies, finding feathers, etc. These are signs from our Angels (feathers are their favorites) and deceased loved ones that they are around us.

Clairaudience
Messages received through our sense of hearing are called Clairaudient communications or Clairaudience. This type of communication can be in the voice of Spirit, or it can come through in your own voice. It can also be messages that come through as music or other sounds. There is a knowing, a utilization of your intuition, that indicates to you that this is a message from Spirit and not just a random thought. Spirit may send auditory messages that guide us to be in a particular place at a particular time or to interview for a particular job. With music, it may be the lyrics that are important or that it was a favorite song. Please note that Spirit will never guide you to do something harmful or completely out of character for you. Know that Spirit is there to help you, not harm you or cause you to harm others. They work through Love and anything unloving is not them.

Clairsentience
When you feel the presence of Spirit either physically or receive emotional signals, it is referred to as Clairsentience. For example, when I give readings, I feel slight pain or heaviness in my chest when Spirit is indicating to me that they had a heart attack or problem with their heart while they were here on earth. This information is called a validation and it is used as an indicator to identify who it is that is coming through for you. It is important to note that as a trained Medium, I am very aware of the difference between what is my pain and what is Spirit’s. If you are experiencing unexplained pain, I would recommend that you get it checked out by a physician. Other physical sensations may include the feeling of a depression on the bed in the size and shape of your beloved pet that has passed on.

You may also feel the emotions of Spirit, such as a strong sense of love or happiness. In addition, I often experience/feel the personality traits of Spirit when they come through in a reading, such as eagerness, shyness, or exuberance.

Clairvalience
Spirit also sends us messages through our sense of smell. This is called Clairalient communication or Clairalience. Have you ever been somewhere when you suddenly smelled cookies baking or someone’s perfume or cologne and there was no logical source for that scent to be in the air? Who is it that you are reminded of when you pick up those scents? It is exactly who you think it is, be it your mother, grandmother, father, friend, spouse, etc.

Clairvoyance
Clairambience is the receipt of messages through the sense of taste. It works in a manner similar to Clairalience, when you can actually taste a food, such as an orange, or another substance, such as the bitter taste of certain medications, without it actually being in your mouth. I do experience this; however, it is not as prevalent as the other four Clairs in my readings.

Abilities and Gifts

All of us are born with the ability to communicate with Spirit, whether it is in simple or complex ways. As with all gifts, some people have stronger abilities than others. For instance, while I can play golf, it does not mean that I will win the LPGA or even become a pro, no matter how many lessons I take or how much I practice. It does mean, however, that I can enjoy the game. It is the same with psychic and mediumship gifts. Some of you may have enough of the gifts to enjoy them, while others of you may be or become strong vessels for the receipt and interpretation of Spirit messages. No matter what your level of ability, if Spirit is meant to communicate with you, they will, whether it is directly with you or with the assistance of a Medium.

Spirit is always around us. They take great joy in knowing that their messages have been received. I hope you enjoy your exploration of the Clairs. Keep in mind that you can always ask your Angels for help and guidance with the development of your gifts and abilities.
