Another way to develop your abilities is to use and trust them on an every day basis! So many think that spiritual abilities are not for the "real world!"
Well, what we call the "real" world is truly not real at all, but contrived by people! Go to your heart whenever you have an important decision and then honor it. When starting A Place of Light, Susan Gale was told to come to Leicester, MA. Although she had a job in NY, she left and moved to MA, where she did not know a soul. Yet, here we have been since 2003! Trusting spirit can lead to wondrous things...
Spirit people are just like physical people, except they have no bodies. Many do not realize their bodies are dead as their consciousness has not changed. They get very excited when they realize a physical person can see them and sometimes get very obnoxious in order to make that person pay attention. Some of these obnoxious things are to get close to the person's face, pull hair, knock things around and make noise.
The most important thing is to be in a place of deeply felt love and compassion when dealing with spirit people. Those spirit people who are mean and/or bullies cannot stand it and will either leave or change. Fear, worry and doubt are all food for the bullies and others with negative energies and thus, when you feel these, you are actually encouraging them to stay! Yikes!
You can ask, either aloud or silently, what the spirit person wants. The answer can feel like a thought or it can present as an emotion or picture. When you are trying to sleep (they have forgotten all about the need to rest and eat!) or are at work or school, you can ask them to return at a certain time.
A word about demons: they frequent really terrible places where torture, cruelty and the worst of human ugliness abounds. The likelihood of them coming to your house is small indeed.
- We smudge with white sage. You can use a smudge stick or loose sage in a
bowl or abalone shell, but smudging will clear the air of negative energies.
You can also smudge yourself, making sure to get under the feet as well.
- We use water. Place a glass of water in a room. The bubbles that may
appear on the sides are negative energies that the water traps. DO NOT DRINK
THIS WATER! Instead, thank the water and pour outside. Be certain to pour in
different areas, as people have commented on how everything dies when it is
poured in the same place! It may take up to two weeks for the bubbles to stop
appearing, but they will!
- Blast the house with the cleanest, brightest white light you can imagine.
- For your self, scraping is something you can do whenever you get what Sonia Choquette
calls the "yuckies." To do this, take your hand and start at the back of the
head 3 to 3 inches away from the body. Scrape along to the front of the face,
then do each arm, above and under. Scrape down the front and then the back.
Get each leg front and back then under the feet. Shake your hands to send the
energy to Mother Earth. You can duck into a bathroom stall whenever you feel
"heavy" and do this to clear yourself while at work or at the mall or other
places where there are many people.
Just like in the physical world, there are all kinds of folks in the spirit world. What is different is that those in the spirit world are all energy without the physical to encumber them. Like attracts like is hard at work when we link with the spirit world. Thus, when we are fearful and nervous... we attract the spirits that feed on that kind of energy. Yikes!
The majority of spirits that come to us are simply glad to have someone who can see them. They are, for the most part, confused about what has happened to them. (A "how can I be dead, when I am still here" kind of thing.) One strategy that has worked well for many is to construct a staircase or escalator to the light and call upon those in the light to help bring the spirit home.
This is really a huge topic, and we do invite your questions if you seek more information. We also host a Mediumship Circle on the first Saturday of each month where you can learn more about how to handle this ability.
