Exploring the Gifts of Mediumship and Psychic Abilities

Meditation for the SoulWhen communicating with spirits, it is important to understand that the process is complicated and abstract. It is not as simple as sitting down and having a chat with a friend. In order to communicate across dimensions, spirits use a combination of images, sounds, feelings, smells, tastes, and stored knowledge. This is done through the manipulation and use of energy. Like us, spirits need to learn how to communicate across dimensions. It is a skill that, once learned, can be built upon as a soul continues to evolve through the ages.

Mediumship
People on earth who display strong abilities to communicate with spirits are referred to as mediums. In most cases, mediums are souls that have been in existence for a long time, and have been working on mastering the art of spirit communication across various dimensions. Similar to people who excel or specialize in certain skill sets in their jobs, mediums may also specialize in communications with certain beings, such as animals, angels, spirit guides, and the spirits of human beings.

Psychic Abilities
There are additional skills sets that mediums may possess, but are not confined just to them. These skills include psychic abilities, past life regression techniques, crystal energy work, telekinesis, and more. People who intuitively know information are referred to as psychics. All mediums have psychic abilities, but not all psychics have mediumship skills that they have mastered. This may be because they have not yet reached that level in their soul’s evolution, or because they have willingly chosen to specialize in the art of intuitive knowledge in this lifetime.

Your Divine Gifts
It is interesting to note that intuition and the ability to communicate via our spirits are gifts that have been granted to all human beings. We have the opportunity and ability to work on and strengthen our skills in this lifetime. While you may not master intuitive and mediumship precepts in this lifetime, you can learn how to better utilize the gifts that God has given you through education and practice.

The Benefits of Developing Your Intuition
Through the refinement of intuitive skills, you are giving yourself the opportunity to receive guidance from your support team in heaven. They send you messages through your intuition to help you with your life path. When you listen to and heed your intuition, your path may be easier as a result because you are accepting help that is being freely given from spiritual beings whose vision greatly exceeds our limited perceptions on earth.

Communicating Through Spirit
The ability to communicate through our spirits has been granted to us because that is how we communicate with God, ourselves, and one another. There are many ways to work on this gift including meditation to get in touch with the spirit within you, learning about mediumship to communicate with spirits outside of yourself, and communing with God within your own heart to develop your relationship with the divine.

Working from the Heart
If you choose to work on developing your skills, have patience with yourself and keep your mind open to the possibilities. Trying to force or manipulate results with wishful thinking or with the intent to harm others will backfire. To truly develop your gifts, it requires a commitment from you to work from the heart, as gifts from the divine are to be approached with honesty, integrity, faith, trust, and love, as well as a strong desire for truth and to be of service to others.

May you be blessed throughout your journey to discover the gifts within you. Namaste!

How to Interpret Your Dreams – Part One

DreamingThere are many books out there about dream interpretation, such as dream dictionaries, that try to help you to determine what your dreams are about. The problem with those dictionaries is that the definitions for the symbols and objects within the book may not ring true for you. The most effective way to interpret your dreams is to do it yourself, because only you know what the symbols mean to you.

There are many theories about what dreams really are…such as random images brought forth from our subconscious, etc. To me, dreams are an interesting phenomenon brought forth from our higher self, as well as from your Heavenly support team of deceased loved ones, the Angels, God, etc. Dreams utilize the myriad of images, feelings, and thoughts within our databank of memories to create story lines that are played out while we sleep. These seemingly random visions can be interpreted with an open mind and lots of practice, practice, practice.

Some of you may be thinking, “but I don’t dream.” Science has proven that we all dream several times per sleep session during the R.E.M cycle (see https://science.howstuffworks.com/life/what-are-dreams.htm for the scientific take on dreams). The reason we don’t remember them may have to do with when we wake up in our sleep cycles (see the previous link for information about dream cycles). However, I have found that if I make a conscious effort to remember them, I do remember at least one upon waking. In doing so, I am telling my body to wake up during the R.E.M. cycle. Before I go to sleep, I tell myself that I would like to remember my dreams upon waking. Don’t worry if it doesn’t happen right away, keep trying and you will succeed. You can also ask your Angels for help. They would be glad to assist you.

In preparation for my dream remembrance, I keep a notebook and a pen, my iPad or a voice recorder by my bedside. Having a readily available source for recording your dreams is important. Once you get up and start your day, the details of your dream may begin to fade fast. If you record it as soon as you wake up, you will be able to capture more detail.

When recording your dream, especially when you are writing it down, do not worry about grammar or spelling, just write down everything you can recall as quickly as possible. Think of it like James Joyce’s stream of consciousness…write it down however it comes to you with as much detail as possible.

The next action you take is to set it aside. Do not try to interpret your dream right away! Set it aside and forget all about it for a few hours or a day. When you are ready to pick it up again for interpretation, it is important for you to have an open mind because you are going to use word association to decipher your message.

Throughout this week, work on actively trying to remember your dreams. When you do, record them. Next week, I will be sharing with you methods for deciphering the messages that your dreams are conveying. Until then, happy dreaming!

Namaste!

How Spirit Communicates with Mediums

Heavenly CloudsMany people that I meet have questions about how I communicate with Spirit. Some of them are under the impression that it is just like a conversation or a video that tells me everything in a straightforward manner. This is not the case. Even though portions of the communication do come across that way, most of it is much more complex than that.

Spirit communicates with me through a series of images, feelings, physical indicators, thoughts, tastes, smells, outward signs, etc. I explain to the recipients of my Spirit Medium readings that the information that I receive is like an abstract puzzle that needs to be pieced together. The following is a very brief synopsis of how it all works for me.

The process of giving a reading involves a fascinating, high-speed blend of information that needs to be quickly recognized, decoded, and interpreted. To begin the process, I concentrate on opening up my mind, heart, body, spirit, and aura to the Light. This serves to heighten my receptivity to Spirit communication through the super activation of all of my senses and raises my energy level up to meet that of Spirit. The connection is then made with Spirit through the supreme source of love that flows throughout all beings.

As I flow through the reading, I focus on the task of accurately receiving, interpreting, and sharing the information transferred to me from Spirit. First and foremost, I need to determine who is coming through, their relationship to you, as well as the specific messages that Spirit wants to share with you. The ultimate purpose of Spirit coming through for you is to provide healing for you, whether that is in the form of reassurance that they are in Heaven or guidance about your life, etc.

Spirit uses symbols, imagery, sounds, etc. from my knowledge and memory bank (aka. “databank”). Since my databank of experiences is unique to me, symbols, etc. that come through for me may have an entirely different meaning for another Medium. With each Medium, Spirit knows what information to use within our unique databanks to get their information through.

It always amazes me how creative Spirit is when communicating with me. They often overlap symbols, thoughts, feelings, physical indicators, etc. to express their messages. Sometimes people expect Spirit to tell them extremely specific information such as a title to a song, but if that is a song that I have never heard, it may be very complicated and challenging for Spirit to send that information, as well as for me to receive and interpret it.

All in all, Spirit communication is a wonderful, yet complex process that requires a tremendous amount of energy to complete. I hope that this information helps you to better understand the process and to appreciate the effort it takes from both Spirit and Mediums to get those incredible, blessed messages through to you.

Namaste!
