Psychic Abilities, Overcoming Fear and Spirits
Q. I began to experiment with psychic abilities about 20 years ago after meeting a person with real gifts. At first it was amazing and I had success with almost everything I tried. To the point where it kinda scared me a bit. It made the world a much bigger, mystical force than I was ready to deal with at the time. I found I had real trouble repeating those successes, perhaps because it did scare me. What would you recommend for someone that wants to open themselves up and begin using their psychic abilities?
A. When you feel fear the first thing to do is assess where it is coming from.. It is because of conditioning or what you saw in the media? True fear is a primal feeling that exists for survival (to keep you safe) which is rational and logical. The problem with fear is (and I get this image) that it is like a virus, and irrational fear (many times from hypothetical situations) can spread like a virus. Rational fear (like you are being chased by a lion) don't spread- they are very valid and real, but irrational fears are fears that spread and take over.. If you think of fear in those terms, you can determine what fears are needed for self preservation and what is fear because we are told to fear it... The latter is what you need to address, change perspective and purge..
Q. How do you purge those fears?
A. There are several ways to do it, and the most effective way varies with the person. The goal is for you to realize that when your mind, body and soul are working in the greater good, you are powerful. You have the ability to set intent, rules and parameters that you feel comfortable with. You have to believe your "rules" will work, and they will.
I get an image of a person that has several spirits in their home- They don't bother or harass anyone, they just exist and their presence can be felt from time to time. Then one night when the homeowner is sleeping the spirit goes in and watches him sleep- more out of curiosity (no malicious intent), but it interrupts the person's sleep (looks restless, tossing and turning). The following night, before going to bed the person says out loud "You are allowed to stay, but you must remain out of my room." The spirit listens and abides by those rules!
Q. How do you trust that your intent will work and they will listen?
A. For someone new to spiritual development, meeting like minded people (in person, online, etc) to share stories and support offer a tremendous strength. This helps to reinforce that other people are out there, and there is a beauty within the spirit world. You can get advice, and see what others do to feel more safe (there are different techniques, and you will find one that resonates with you)- they all focus on a clear intent and focus.
Setting intent, asking questions and meditating to connect to your higher self truly gives you the best insight and direction. For those that have difficulty meditating, a guided meditation or hypnosis can be helpful (gets you to a relaxed state of mind and allows the subconscious to get through).
A. Intuitions that you get throughout the day come though in what feel like involuntary means, so there is no "true process" aside from keeping a general outlook of allowing things to happen in your greater good. When you go to do a meditation or intentional work (like a reading) begin your session with clear intent- rid yourself of fear or anxiety, take a few cleansing breaths, and say that you want information in your greatest good and of the highest vibrational source and then go into your experience. Trust and know that you will receive accurate and safe information. [Note: When you see a person, like your passed grandparent, ask then if they are grandpa- if they tell you anything other than "yes," ask them to move along, and they will... Spirits want to get through and leave messages, so if they see an opening, they may try to take it. Don't fear it, just tell it to go, and it will.]
Some people also envision various colors (seeing a white light of protection) or an image that "feels" safe. You can also use protective crystals, or burn incense. The most important thing is the mental intent, and the other things strengthen your base intent.
Q. Do you ever get scared or followed by, any of ill will entities?
A. I have had spirits not want to leave, but it was because they had message that wasn't fully delivered. Once I relayed the message, they left. I have also had spirits that have wanted to stay, but once I realized what was happening, I smudged my home, and immediately they were gone. Most are not ill will, they just have a message . Don't fear them, help them move on. (Remember energy is not created or destroyed, but can be shifted elsewhere.)
Q. Do they see you when you see them in a house?
A. Yes, they can. Many times they are oblivious and walk around in their own realm. But, there are times when they will look right at you (and be just as startled as you are).
Q. Do they hear us even if we speak foreign language?
A. Spirits hear and understand everything. Spirits have no "language." They work on the energy behind thoughts. Humans use language because we aren't advanced enough to run on pure telepathic communication. When you psychically connect, many thoughts are telepathic (this why it is so hard to put some concepts into words- you understand clearly, but it is difficult to verbalize).
And that is all I have for this reading. Thank you. Love and light- Lynn
