lol, join the club. :) I'm the same way, accept, as I got older, I don't do crowds and I am mostly a loner. What we read about empath's is really what many people have observed as "typical" behavior, however, like anything else nothing is carved in stone. So here is a different perspective. Empaths are a type of psychic that falls under the umbrella clair of "clairsentience" aka clear feeling. Humans are like walking satellites, as we all give off and receive energy, some energy is stronger and some ,well not so strong. Being psychic is merely being a bit more senastive to that energy and the clairs are just another category on how we receive that energy. Because we are unique in nature, how we receive this energy will vary from person to person, so you may receive it differently then anyone here and it may not fall under the label, But in all reality, it's just a label and I think people spend to much time analyzing the label and not nearly enough time simply developing their own unique way of energy interpretation. When you break it down to it's simplest form, what I desribed above is what you have. Epaths typically channel emotional or physical pain because their sensativity to the energy is often strongest. It doesn't mean that they feel it from everyone, this is where the unique comes from. Maybe you remember the pain, so you are more drawn to people in pain because your already open to it. So most people who walk around may have a baseline emotions but it doesn't grab you, but then you may have that one person who's energy reaches out to you and you are open to it and then it hits you like a brick wall.

For example, for me, I am usually drawn to strong emotions because these emotions are deeper and I don't like dealing with superficial stuff. I want to know the core of a person and I don't care what is in there. Some are normal, most it's just like I get nothing, and some are just horrible. Sometimes the energy comes to me and I'm meant to awknoweldge it, sometimes it's a warning to stay away.

If you think about it, this is really just another way we communicate is through energy. Your energy may be a fit for one and horrible for another, or it just doesn't fit. It's not really about just being sensitive to the energy but overtime learning to read that energy. The clairs are merely a category or label of how we read that energy. Just another way of interpreting that energy.

Again, I would spend to much time looking for the "signs" because I have yet to find one person who fits 100% under any label :)

Check out Empaths, but also clairsentience, clairvoyant and the other clairs. I would focus more on the different types to get an idea, but mostly I would suggest to set most of it aside and learn how YOU receive that energy and devlope in a way that flows through naturally :) I hope this helps :)

wow! I just lost my entire post. Ok, I will give you the cliffnotes version. Set the entity aside for a moment. Your sister needs
professional help for her cutting and depression. She needs an outside source to shift the pendulum. Right now she is in a state of fear and hopelessness because she is not in control. She needs to know that she has a choice in all of this. Right now, they are playing on her fears and other emotions and using her like the energizer bunny, but she has a choice to live a happy healthy life. She may always be a medium, but once she realizes that she does have a choice, they will no longer have a battery to feed off of. The cool thing about being a medium is that mediums are sensitive to spiritual energy...ALL spiritual energy. It's not the entity that is taking control, it's the fear that is stronger then her desire to be free of it that keeps her doing this.

See, it took my over 30 years to realize this and hopefully I can save her alot of grief. I was 5 when I recall my first mediumistic encounter. I always afraid because they came to me just like they did you and her. They to had control until one day I realized something. I realized that I was in control. The fear was strong but my desire to no longer be afraid was stronger. They feed off of what is already within us, but when fear is stronger then desire, then they have control, but when desire is stronger then fear, your in control! This doesn't mean they go away, it does mean you take back your power and you control who you deal with and who you send away and walk away from.

As you and her have the ability to connect to the uncrossed spirits and lower realms, you also have the ability to connect with the higher realms! Spiritual energy is spiritual energy in it's most basic form, as you connect with one, you can also choose to connect with the other, and this balances the pendulum , per say. Trust me on this, you both have a choice. You may not have a choice on your abilities, you do have a choice on how you will use them. She may be to low right now to see this and this is where the professional can help her, to bring her energy levels higher, to help build confidence and to take back her's and your power. Your desire right now to be free from this is stronger then your fear of it and THIS is what makes you in control. It doesn't mean confront it directly, remember, no matter what your intentions are, energy sent is energy received, however, surrounding yourself and her with things that bring joy and give little to no attention to things that bring you down, including music, people, ect gives you power because it transform your fear into hope, and hope into knowing. Once you know what is inside of you, then no matter what life throws at you, natural or susupernatural you will win!

This is why it is so imortnat right now to surround yourself in things that bring you personal power, to call upon higher realms that YOU believe in, for belief is also power. It doesn't mean they will never come, what it means is that you will know how to handle it when they do, and eventually a simple, "nope, I'm not dealing with you" and you walking away will happen because you are no longer afraid, You already know that you are protected. You already know that fear and have made that choice not to let it control you. Then there's nothing to feed off of. But you and her need to make that choice, and that choice starts with a desire that is greater then the fear, which you, already have and which is why you are here.

You are not in the position right now to go on offense, so now is the time to go on defense. Get her some help. You two go out the movies, something fun and light, have lunch, go skating and remember what it's like to live. place a protective shield around the house, and call upon your higher power to fill you with light. Ignore the being as if it's not there for now. Start lifting your spirits in everything you do and remember what it's like to live. If you never fully lived, then do so, make plans, dream about the present and future and keep it light, keep it happy and spend some time on the lighter side of life.

If negative things come your way simply say " I will not accept this in my life" and switch the mental gear into something positive. Sage the house and draw in white light and do not focus on fear, anger, negative thoughts, ect. Embrace the light and soon the darkness will scatter.

If you feel the need to battle this later on, then that is your choice, however, right now, I would suggest the above and go into defensive until you/her are strong enough to defeat this thing for good. It works, it really does if you truly want it. But get her some help to switch gears within so she can stand up to this. I hope this helps:)

Blessed Be

When I opened your post I immediately picked up on a male human spirit. He does feel attached to the house or someone near the home, not you. The energy is low because he hasn't crossed over yet, he is still in the state he was when he died. I'm not sure but he does feel young somewhere in his early to mid 20's maybe. I also felt there may have been some drugs involved but also felt like there may have been a suicide. Hmm, what's interesting is that his energy feels more hyper, like someone on crystal meth or something. Was there a meth lab in the neighborhood or someone who was on meth that od'ed or something? I don't want to guess, but the energy definitely feels drug related. I just saw a motorcycle connected to him.

Now, I am also picking upon a female spirit as well. Her energy feels more depressed and sad. She also feels young late teens early 20's, but she feels like she was alive before the male. The male feels more recent, not necessarily recent, but his death was more recent then her's. I'm drawn more to the mid 1900's like between 1950-1970 something. I'm not sure how old the house is. If you have a pic, I can see if I can get a better read on it. Broken heart, she was in alot of emotional pain. She also feels more residual. Her energy meshes alot with the house. Her pain seems to ooze out of the walls. She may have committed suicide. Whoa, wait a minute. Angry, wants to be left alone, though she seems like she is wandering around, she is very angry. Sorry, it was weird, I was trying to get a better read on her to see if she was residual or an actual spirit and she turned very angry. More like po'ed! wow! I wasn't expecting that! Did you ever hear a voice tell you to "back off" while you were there? I think something happened to her on the property. Not sure, but the house doesn't feel that old, but there may have been another home on the property before then.

lol, duh, your house was built on top of a cemetery. Ok, I'm a ditz,hahaha. These people are obviously attached to the property and chances are they moved the headstones NOT the actual graves. I'm now seeing dates going back to 1800's. There may also be another burial site a few miles away. It feels like your house was once a pretty remote area and with alot of history behind it. The sadness you likely felt is really the energy of death. Some are at peace but many are not. Death itself has a heavier depressive feel to it, like a dark heavy blanket thrown over you. I'm also picking up on shadows as well, which also brings in negative energy.

Your son, did he have an imaginary friend when he was young and living there? I'm seeing an older male, grandfather type talking to him. He was very sensitive back then. There also seems to be a child spirit that was near him. male.

There is alot going on there. I just heard battleground, was the house on a battleground from way back when? Native American, maybe? I'm also seeing like tall hills or mountains in the background.

Alot going on there, it's good that you moved and that you are happy. It's hard to do a cleansing in a house like that because unless you can cross over every spirit, it will probebly stay haunted. Even if you crossed over the majority of them, there will still be the one's who choose to stay behind. And then you will still have the more negative and non-human entities that also stay behind. Would I would suggest is to do a cleansing on yourself and all of your stuff and then do a blessing on everything and the property. You may get some answers, but in this case, I would suggest to find a way to heal from this if you haven't already and just walk away. Close that chapter and enjoy life again :)

I haven't read the responses yet because I wanted to get a read on it first so I'm sorry if any of this repeated. I do hope your life has gotten better now that you have moved. I imagine it has. I'm not allowed to read your partner as it would be a third party reading and against EC rules. I would suggest though that you close this door, not necessarily in the paranormal but about that chapter of your life. As an Empath, you have to be careful because when we channel regular emotions it can be very powerful but when we channel spiritual energy, it's off the chart! My theory is because they don't have a body so their energy is thinner and easier to channel. There is no physical barrier to help hold back or contain that energy, s it's more raw energy coming through all at once.

Be Blessed!

Attachements.


Psychic and Paranormal

It was weird, when I clicked on to you post, I swear your picture moved, like there was a clear energy field. It's hard to explain, but it's the difference between looking at something in front of you and looking at it in clear water. It was infidelity and energy shift. I didn't feel anything bad from it, just an energy field. I did feel a female, human spirit, that felt like a grandmother type, someone from a few generations back and heard the name "Martha" or something with an "M" and an "A" I'm not god with names. I also picked up a male, not much on him, he feels more residual, he seems more about the house where as the female is more about someone watching over you, but this doesn't explain the energy shift. I do feel that you are a sensitive/medium, something passed down from a female side, I just heard "aunt".

I do feel that you astral project and at times you walk in between the veils all at the same time. It almost feels like walking then things go into a dream state while being awake. Like, say your walking through your living room, but then things looks like a dream, like walking through an energy field. Where you see things in real-time but it also shifts like your seeing it in clear water. I'm not sure I'm explaining this right :)

Do you ground your energy often? It may help to ground your energy. Because senatives/mediums are like beacons it's not uncommon to have earthbound spirits coming and going and following you around. They often don't mean harm, but likely feel like you can help them or just may be drawn to your strong energy. I have no doubt you protect your energy field, you can also try to extend the shield outwards so they are not so close to you. Grounding your energy may also help to direct that energy more to the ground instead of having so much energy extending outwards. So it's kind of like drawing your own energy in while extending your shield out further away from your body and your aura.

Your going to attract many things, most will be human, though some may be non-human. Most of these non-human beings do attach themselves, but they often attach themselves to other human spirits who come to you. These lost souls are like batteries to non-human entities so they don't want to loose their battery or energy source. Usually what I do is bring in alot f light and offer them a safe place to decide. Like when I cross them over, it's hard to get them to cross when they have these other entites attached to them because they won't willing let them go, however, I create a protective path filled with light,Angels and Jesus at the door. None of these entities can enter because it is so well protected. When they are there, they choose. Most are already willing to go, they just need a let go and that safe place. Some change their minds. It's really all about freewill. These non-human attachments do attach, but if the spirit does want to cross over, then they choose to enter this area and then ultimately choose to cross and there is nothing the attachment can do. By doing this though, everything needs to be protected, including yourself, your home, car, family, ect. If you loose some, then it's their choice and they will come back when they are ready. I don't confront these entities, I merely use the light that draws them back and away.

I don't feel any attachments on you. I do feel spirits around you. Listen, before you blow alot of money on having people doing stuff to get rid of attachments, ect,. I would spend some time understanding your gifts, understanding energy, especially yours since your energy is so strong. This is where the grounding and extending your shield may help. Understand what your gifts are, how they work in you and decide what YOU want to do with it. Being a sensitive or medium, you will likely always have spirits around you. It's really more about learning to control it. You may also want to look more into astral projection or even energy projection , which is really more about the energy you are giving off and receiving.

I hope this helps :)

Empathic Mediumship 101- Part 1


Psychic and Paranormal

Alot of mediums work only with the higher realms, and those realms are quite safe. For myself, I work alot with lost souls and this shielding is necessary as many of them have attachments to them and they are still in a pretty dark place. I have also talked to many who have tried to connect with their guides and angels and got some pretty scary stuff instead. I play it safe for this reason, however, this is merely a guideline and I suggest that anyone reading this make it their own. If it works for you, then use it, if not, disregard it. :)

Made By Empaths ©: The gripping tale of a complicated birth


Empath

That's sounds awesome. I came to EC back in 2009/2010 and it was my launch pad. I was just barely realizing that I was an Empath. Though it helped me understand what an Empath is, EC became more then that, the members became family, especially when I asked for prayers and support for my oldest who attempted suicide. The overwhelming support I received changed me. Those were my darkest hours and the one place I could turn to was here. I not only wanted to developed my skills as an Empath, it helped developed me as a person. It made me realize that there are people out there who really do care. These "online strangers" are now my family and when it all boils down to it, it's not about just developing Empathic abilities, it's about seeing one another, supporting one another and knowing we are not alone in the crazy world. No matter who rejects us or think we are crazy or just oversensative, we always have a home to come to to family who understands. Thank you for giving this to us.

please let me know how I can help :)

Blessed Be,

Angel

The one thing I learned about mediumship, especially with uncrossed spirits, is that your not meant to help them all. Some are lost souls and they are the one's who are usually seeking help because they actually WANT to go into the light but something is keeping them from going into it. Typically you can tell because they feel alot of guilt and/or sadness. There are other one's who are here for a reason or a purpose and will cross over when they have achieved their goal. This is often the case of homicidal or missing person's.These are the one's who usually ask for help in either sending a message, helping police locate them, or something as simple as wanting someone to listen to their story. These one's you don't need to send into the light for they will go as soon as they have finished their business. And then you have the one's who choose to stay behind and have no intention on crossing over. Alot of mediums look at them as one's who are lost because they don't want to cross over and the medium feels they should. These one'e have made the choice to stay and these are the one's I send away because they often like to reek havoc. If they don't have any desire to cross over, then they need to find another battery to feed off of.

I look at it like this. Your not going to help every human on the planet because not everyone is lost. Look at the spirits as a bunch of strangers walking down the street. Some you would sense their pain and try to help them out. Some you just know are not good people and you turn the other way and walk away as fast as you can. This doesn't change in the spirit realm. Uncrossed spirits are no different then regular people walking this planet every single day. Would you let a serial killer in life in your home? Then don't let them in your home in death either. Life continues, nothing changes until the cross over. I would suggest you ick and choose wisely who you are going to help. If you can't read them, they may be hiding. If they are hiding their identity from you, send them away, they want nothing more then cause trouble.

You have a strong desire to help lost souls but they drain you because their grief is so strong. You have the ability to show them the light, to make them feel it. If they feel it and want to go, they will go because the desire to leave is stronger then the emotion they are feeling that keeps them here. I would ask for Divine assistance when doing this. If they are still not ready to go, tell them to leave and to come back when they are ready. They must make that choice on their own. I would suggest keeping the conversation short and focus more in channeling the light/healing energy in. This should hel not only them but yourself as well as this healing energy fills you as well :) If they aren't ready to cross over after say 10 minutes, send them away. You need to look out for you. When they are ready, they will come back. And don't feel bad for doing it.

Knowing who your dealing with and who actually wants help is key. Set boundaries and send the rest away otherwise they will just keep feeding off of your energy. Either they choose to accept or they choose not to, only they can choose for themselves and that's the bottomline. It may sound insensitive, but it's no different then trying to rescue your best friend and sending months trying to help them just to realize that they really either don't want help or they are simply not ready. The lost are not looking for a counseling session, they are looking for relief, and usually the only way they will find that relief is by feeling the light. The light has peace, it has love and it heals which is why they are drawn to you, it's because they feel that light in you. Open a channel for their light so they can see or feel it and if they really want it, they will go.

Anyway's this is just things I experienced. You may find something different works for you, but just thought I'd throw some of this out there if it helps :)

I'm not really seeing a totem. I'm also not feeling anything negative at all. In fact it feels like you put something back there for protection of your property or at least something is there that feels like it protects that area. It was blessed at some point.

Involuntary Fear of 'Abilities'


Empath

What are your spiritual beliefs, sometimes our beliefs, especially if we were ingrained in a certain belief system as children, will often carry that into our adulthood, So maybe some f your fears are from what you were taught or it's a subconscious pull making you feel like you are doing something wrong according to those beliefs.

This is actually a good time for you to understand your beliefs and ask yourself, do I trust my divine? do i honestly feel this is ok to do? if not, why not? this may be more about faith and less about fear. You may want that protection but do you fully believe that you will be protected? if not, ask yourself why not? and then go from there about your reservations. You may not be ready yet. You can try and start with basic meditations to the higher realms without actually astral projecting at first. The light can be stronger then the dark, but where your energy lyes is what will manifest. If your fear is stronger then your light, I would suggest not to do it now and to focus solely on light energy for awhile. Once you have hit that point, the shadows will mean nothing because you will already know within the depths of your soul that they cannot hurt you and you will know that they cannot harm you because you are fully protected by that light energy. IMHO. Many blessings to you :)

Very cool Roxy and no you don't look constipated,lol. I wish I knew you were out this way, I would have gone up to see you. Sedona has that spiritual vortex and alot of spiritual people visit there often. Though the energy is ancient, I think the energy from all the spiritual visitors also enhance the energy. I don't know if you went to prescott but that lace has alot of weird energy, it's like the same concentration of energy, but the energy is opposite. Crazy, haha, glad you had such a great experience and thanks for sharing this really cool image with us!!((hugs))

Involuntary Fear of 'Abilities'


Empath

Astral projection may be newer territory for you, idk. I am still afraid of my mediumship and sometimes astral projection., They seem to go hand in hand since I work with uncrossed spirits, I'm always afraid that they will try to take over me when I'm gone. I haven't gotten over the fear so I decided not to go into a really deep trance. Instead , in a spiritual sense, I stay mostly conscious within a light trance so that way I can still be somewhat aware of what is going on around me. It's just as effective for me. Alot of my fears stemmed from childhood experiences with spirits and the supernatural. What I would suggest is to figure out what your fear is. Don't dismiss it as little because it's a legitmate fear because you fear it :) Acknowledge it and if you can't completely get over your fear, compromise with it. Find a way to meditate that will let you feel more comfortable astral projecting. perhaps you are afraid of what will happen if you leave, if this is the case, be clear about where you want to travel and set the intention or purpose of your journey before you go. Ask your guide or angels to travel with you and add a protective shield around your body and an archangel to protect it while your gone. Maybe you are afraid of not having more control if this is the case, try going into a light trance and stay earthbound. Maybe your afraid you won't return, if so, invision a cord connecting your soul to your body and set an alarm for the time you want to come back, ect.

You could also do a ritual cleansing before and after to prevent hitchhikers. Because your afraid of that spiritual realm, create a space that you are confident you are protected in and this should help. If your fear, however is stronger then your desire, you may want to confront that fear and go further on what the fear is and why you have it. Hope this helps,

Blessings,

Angel

You have alot of light around you and he is drawn to your light. Here is something I feel that should be passed on to you. On a night that is quiet, light a white candle and send some time writing him a letter. Write everything you feel, how he changed you, how your saddened by his death, ect. When you are done, invision white light from above filling you and then forming a rotective bubble around you and then your home. Ask your Angels for their presence and assistance. Invision love and eace energy filling your bubble and all around your home. Also any other's that are in the home. Light another white candle and take some time to think about the wonderful memories you had. When you are finished, read the letter out loud and say whatever you need to say from your heart. Tell him to go into the light and blow out the candle. Thank the Angels for their help and it's done.

The reason why I feel the need to tell you this is because he's drawn to your light. He needs to heal and so do you. You may feel alot of guilt and this is a healing ritual that will not only help you heal but him as well so he can go where he needs to go. The formality is really nothing more then helping you both connect to the light. The light is love and healing and the formality helps connect to a stronger light energy to help you both heal. He was a light in your darkest hour and now you are his light. It's interesting how things work :) You are a beacon of light to him, once he feels the light, he will leave and move to where he needs to go. :) What a gift !

If you need help, let me know.

Blessed Be,

Angel

How meditation works

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Meditation is an extremely simple process. It follows three distinct steps

  1. We start with a superficial, scattered mind (This is the level with which we often carry out our day-to-day chores, bring in the newspaper, cook the meal - it is often characterised by lots of thoughts, positive and negative, with very little control or knowledge of how they got there) If we are often in this state of mind, we will find that we are easily distracted, have difficulty concentrating, probably worry about unimportant things and have little understanding of the real 'us'.

  • We then progress by virtue of our hearts concentration - to deeper, analytical thinking. When our mind is focused completely on one thing, we are the most efficient and purposeful in our thinking. (This is the basis of the rules of time-management -> to be focused absolutely on one task at a time) This analytical level reveals the deepest we can go with thought. We can use a number of meditation techniques to achieve this, and they will be explored in further classes.

  • From this very deep thinking we enter into intuitive states, revelations, "I know this is right" feelings or extremely vivid goals or intense creativity or spiritual dreams. When thinking stops and intuitive experience takes over, this is meditation. We call these moments, 'Aah' moments. These moments are where the deepest moments of revelation and intuition are born, and where we reveal our real self.

The task of meditation is to enter the very focused thinking of the analytical mind and from there the shift to the intuitive mind or heart takes place automatically.

The highest experience in any endeavour is a meditation experience. Every endeavour goes through similar processes to eventually arrive at meditation Meditation for Beginners, Free Learn to Meditate - Meditation Australiaexperiences.

If, for example, we want to become a pianist, we first have to train the body and the mind to have the correct finger technique etc. For a footballer, the right kicking style; for a rock-climber, the right moves; so we concentrate past the superficial to the analytical mind and learn and practice as efficiently as possible.
At each endeavour's upper echelon, however, there are moments where our consciousness is transported past the analytical to the intuitive or higher mind or what we may call the heart. Examples of these intuitive or meditative moments are typically where a team works as one, a runner experiences the runners high, a bushwalker ceases to be an observer and merges into the feeling of the forest and becomes a participant, a sports person hits a zone.

As we know already these moments are usually; Memorable - when we look back on our lives these are the moments that we recall.
Fulfilling - they are the reason we spend hours at our endeavours so we can get a few moments of meditation.
Accidental - imagine how much better our lives would be if we could meditate at any time we chose.

The seven keys to meditation

There are several key things you can do that will significantly enhance your meditation. They may seem subtle at first, but remember, meditation itself is all about cultivating the higher, subtler parts of your being. Take it from experience - together these seven keys will make a big difference. So please give them a try!
Key#1: Find a Special Place Set aside a special place that is used only for meditation. If you have a spare room, great, but its fine to set aside a corner of your bedroom. This will be your sacred space for self-discovery, so Meditation for Beginners, Free Learn to Meditate - Meditation Australia youll want to make it as inspiring as possible.

You might like to:
Cover a low table with a clean, light cloth
Place a candle on a table, and a vase with fresh flowers if possible.
You may also want to light some incense. Together, these items will help create a meditative atmosphere.

Key#2: Prepare Physically Your spiritual journey takes place in and through your physical body. Heres how you can help prepare it for meditation:

Take a shower before meditating. If it isnt possible to take a shower, wash your face and hands.
Wear clean, light, loose fitting clothes.
Take your shoes off before meditating. Your feet deserve a break too!

Meditation for Beginners, Free Learn to Meditate - Meditation AustraliaKey#3: Sit Relaxed, Sit Straight Theres no need to sit in a special yogic posture to meditate. If you can sit comfortably on a cushion on the floor, this is best. Otherwise a meditation stool or chair is fine. The important thing is to be still and relaxed, to have your back erect, and to have the flower and candle close to eye level. People often ask if its okay to meditate while lying down. We dont recommend it; the most likely outcome is youll fall asleep. Always remember to begin your meditation with six or seven power-breaths long, slow deep breaths that release the myriad of thoughts and focus your attention within.

Key#4: Slow and Steady Wins the Race In the beginning, five minutes of meditation a day is enough. Meditation is like an inner muscle that you are slowly but surely making stronger. If you overwork a muscle, it becomes sore; if you meditate for more than five minutes and feel tension in your head or get a headache, you know youve gone beyond your capacity. Try not to be concerned with expectations of what your meditation is going to do for you or what your meditation experience should be. Just steadily, soulfully and sincerely practice and make yourself alert to the messages that will begin to arise from within.

Key#5: Choose the right time Make an appointment with yourself and practice at the same time each day. Just as you feed your physical body several times a day at certain times, meditation nourishes your inner life so set at least one special time each day for your meditation exercises.

Meditation for Beginners, Free Learn to Meditate - Meditation AustraliaThe best time to meditate is early in the morning, before you enter into your daily activities. This way, the peace you get from your meditation will permeate the rest of your day.

If by giving up small pleasures, great happiness is to be found, the wise should give up small pleasures, seeing the prospect of great happiness - THE BUDDHA.

Many people also like to meditate when they get home from work, to help wash away the stress of the day. You might also want to meditate just before going to bed. This will help you to sleep more soundly.

We dont suggest meditating right after a big meal. Like a bird, your inner being will be trying to fly higher, but your body will be weighing it down. So wait an hour or two before meditating.

Key#6: The Power of Music Music is often referred to as the language of the soul. Peaceful music of the heart will create a meditative atmosphere and tremendously enhance the quality of your meditation. Play it softly during your exercises; merely listening to and absorbing the music will help you to feel the deep inner stillness of meditation.

Key#7: You In the end, the most important ingredient in this whole process is you. It is you, who experiences, you, who is discovered, you, who is the student, you, who is the real teacher and you, finally, who is revealed.

Remind yourself of this often because this is the greatest gift of meditation: faith in oneself.
Highly recommended A meditation journal is the best aid I have included to my meditation over the years. Verbalising what you are going through and/or what you are currently focusing on by writing down these self-revelations formalises and crystallises the most crucial process of listening to oneself.

The Wheel of Life


Psychic and Paranormal

The Wheel of Life is the medieval model of change. It describes the emotions of change. In the Middle Ages when many people were illiterate teaching took place through images or pictures. The Wheel of Life was often carved in the stone walls of cathedrals. People seeing the image received instruction about the change process. What was the lesson?

Wheel of Life

At the top of the wheel is a well-dressed, smiling, kingly or queenly person. This person is in the position of Happiness. Things are normal and going well. The wheel turns with a clockwise movement. Change has occurred. The same person is now upside down and falling through space with a look of distress. This is the position of Loss. The wheel continues its movement and at the bottom of the wheel the individual is now nude and is being pulled along through the muck and mire of life. This is the position of Suffering. The wheel turns and the person, who is again clothed, rises up to the position of Hope. There is hopeful anticipation of once again reaching the position of happiness. The wheel's lesson is that there are only four positions in life: happy, loss, suffering, and hope. We are always in one of these positions.

Happy is where
we want to be.

Happy is where everything seems normal. Happy is where we all want to be. What we are doing is succeeding. There is a routine that works. We are comfortable.

"Suffering"
means to
allow

Loss is where the happiness of routine begins to fall apart. A variety of events have signaled change and we are being challenged to let go of the routine that worked. When loss comes we want to return to our lost happiness as quickly as possible. We want to regain our equilibrium by making the wheel go in reverse. The wheel, however, only moves forward with a clockwise motion. To regain happiness we must follow the wheel into suffering.
Suffering is at the bottom of the wheel. Suffering is the phase of transition. The Latin root word for suffering means to "experience or allow." So, to suffer means that we go through and fully experience our loss as we make and then implement our plans for a return to normal. This is a process that we cannot short circuit and still achieve our goal. We cannot go over, under, or around the transition phase. We must go through it with the hard work of planning, implementing, and revising. This is often unpleasant and there is true suffering (tension, stress, anxiety, worry, frustration, anger, conflict, sadness). It is out of suffering (experiencing) that hope arises.

The Wheel always turns.

Hope comes when our plan is working and progress can be seen. We begin to feel competent. Our goal comes into view and we have a vision of a return to the happiness of normalcy.
The normalcy that we see will not be the same as the "old" normal. Through an effective process of change we return to balance but it is a new and different balance. Happiness is found in a new state of equilibrium.

Once returned to normal we look ahead and get that uneasy sense that, "Somethings Up?" The winds of change continue to blow. The wheel always turns. Our happiness, normalcy, is not a permanent state. More change is coming and the journey around the wheel into loss, suffering, and hope begins again.

Whenever change enters our life we experience the emotions of change. As we sense that loss is coming there is anxiety, apprehension, and worry. When loss arrives we feel sad, angry, irritated, and frustrated. Grieving needs to be done. With the experience of suffering through change may come stress, depression, burnout, helplessness, or even hopelessness. Eventually, hope brings a renewed energy, optimism, and enthusiasm and happiness brings a sense of satisfaction and contentment.
The Wheel of Life teaches that we cannot get happy and stay happy. Change always comes. Change brings growth. The emotions of change are expected and normal. They cannot be avoided. Looking for and accepting them in yourself and others helps work through the process of change

It's an ability called Claircogniance " ( I may have spelled it wrong) but it's one of the "Clairs" in the psychic world that means "clear knowing". According to different belief systems some may refer this to the Holy Spirit, knowledge of the Divine, ect . It's really up to you on who you choose to give the credit to, but you may want to research this, especially if it happens often. If it's a one time deal then you may have been given this knowledge for a specific purpose, if it happens often, especially when alot of it mundane things, then it's most likely another ability you have that you may want to develop. Most people who are sensitivities to one method of psychic connection or even channeling is often open to other methods as well. It's not really about which category you fall under, moreso, your sensitivity to the energy and how it works with you as an individual. Check out my discussion in the dream diary group. Technically it could have been categorized in many different ways, but it's not the typical way to receive that energy, but it does happen, not because I have a million abilities, it's because of the sensitivity to that energy and it expressing itself in the way that I am most open to it. I hope this makes sense :) This is why I use the labels to give people an idea of what one thing is or another, however, it's merely a basic guide and encourage you to be open to allow it to express itself through you in the way that you are most open to it. It can get confusing this way, but even the psychic connection is part of the whole, expression is an individual journey of it's own that contributes to the whole in many different ways. If we all shared the same thing, then noone would be helped from it, it would be useless, pointless, but learning who this energy flows through you and comes to you is your key to help other in ways that noone else can. To reach someone or have someone else reach you that can only be done through you because of that individual expression :)

Your post is a very beautiful and powerful expression of this. Have faith in yourself and your abilities will grow to heights you have never dreamed of :)

Blessed Be,

Angel

First off, spend an hour with a massage therapist. They can probably work out alot of the knots in your neck that is most likely due to stress. While you are getting this done, spend a little time envisioning the negative energy being worked out of your body and going into the ground. As your body is renewed so shall your soul be renew. For full effect find one who has a private room and offer's other natural healing such as aromatherapy ect. The idea is for you to take one hour out of your life relaxation and rejuvenation.
As far as your boss, you can't change her, but you already know this :) It's hard working for a boss that bullies people around and since you turned her in, you may become a more serious target, however, she may also lighten up a bit if other's have complained as well. In this situation you can place a protective shield around yourself with white light. Because you can't change her, you can program it to keep "mean people away". If this doesn't work, then reverse it so that when her negative energy comes towards you, the shield will catch it and have it fall away from you before it get's to you. Most of this will require some patience however, because this a more "human" issue and not supernatural. On your part, the best defense against this is not allowing yourself to take her bullying personal. Even if it's directed personally towards you, understand that there is something deeper inside that is going on, and that probebly has nothing to do with you, what you are seeing is merely a reflection of something going on inside. Most people who bully usually feel insecure and have to bring other's down in order to make themselves look better. For adult bullying, the person who is targeted is usually the person who doesn't go along with the others and is usually one of the best worker's. Keep doing what you are doing, your on the right track. However, you may also want to transfer to a different department or even find a different job. If you are doing ok financially, you may decide to take a break and spend a little time for self discovery. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that you take care of everyone but yourself. Maybe take a break for a short time for you. If this is not possible, you may want to consider going into a different area that is less stressful and one that fit's better to your spiritual needs. Life is really about trying to find your own natural flow of things and going with it.
I wish I could give some really great advice on how to deal with the boss, but in a situation like this, most of it must come from within and changing our own situation.
I'm trying not to go into a reading because we are on the main forum however, you just feel so stressed, Hun. You may just want to consider a life make over. Get rid of all the things that are causing you stress and no joy and think of ideas that you are interested in and align your life with your life purpose. As an RN you can do alot of things, if you are into homopathy you could open a clinic and specialize in natural medicine, or go into pediatrics, psych, or whatever. There is no limit to what you can do. Go with what makes you happy. When I was 17 I had my first child and I was on my own. They don't normally do this, but because I was on my own, the hospital set me up with a Public Health Nurse that came to visit me and my child once a week. She was a great help and support for me. Being a teen and a brand new mom, if I ever had any questions or needed help, she was always there. Maybe this may be something your interested in.
Anyway's, my family is waiting for pizza,lol. Think about what's going on in your life, not just the job but every aspect of it and what you want to do as opposed to what you feel you need to do. With your credentials you have so many opportunities find the door that fits the key to your heart and walk through it.
I hope this helps. May the blessings of the Divine be with you.

I sent a reply to your other thread, but real quick, being that the doctors can't seem to find out what is wrong, you may want to research panic attacks. panic attacks manifest in many different forms , the difference is that it comes and goes and also makes you ultra sensitive to everything. I've had them manifest in my face going numb thinking I was having a stroke, to my eyes getting blurry and a whole bunch of other things. You can ask your doctor about this and see if some of the physical problems you are experienced is caused through panic attacks. Blessed Be.

Without trying to scare I'm going to advise to cleanse your house ASAP! I definitely feel it is human but usually when I see the large white obs, things start going south very quickly. With us, it never fails. When I start seeing a white mist or orb shoot out from somewhere I know more activity is on the way and I cut it off at the pass. This usually involves cleansing , clearing and protecting and then protecting the home, my family, pets, cars , ect. I don't confront it, instead, I envision a type of psychic energy blast that literally pushes them out of the house and then quickly place the shield up. I wasn't going to respond because I wanted to get a better read on your picture, but yeah., I can pretty much tell where this is going. Not necessarily a psychic thing, but because I'm experienced it so many times,lol. In fact , today I will also try and do it remotely and see if will help long enough for you to do it yourself.
So here's the path it usually takes. The white orb things shoots out somewhere and I go " great". If I ignore it, I usually start hearing things or feeling uneasy within an hour or so, sometimes sooner. I ignore it. Usually within the next day or two shadows start appearing and strange things start happening. The power with these things are much greater then your average spirit so whatever spirits do come right afterwards often manifest quickly and with more strength. Things get quite chaotic, the kids and animals start feeling it and get scared and apparitions start appearing. The energy and the mood of the house changes at this point, we do our cleansing, my husband does the sage and sea salt inside and out and I do the pyschic meditation, "the blast" haha and then everything goes back to normal.
So I want to give you a few tips. The first tip is to not be afraid and don't confront it. Your offense IS your defense if that makes sense. Stop talking about the strange things that are happening and make a plan in your head on how to get rid of it quickly! The thing is is that they feed off of your emotions, the energy. So you want to prepare yourself for the cleansing and ritual. Most of the time I don't have to go through the formalities because I usually get rid of it before it get's to bad. But I will walk you through the steps that I take when it's bad.
1- Open a type of sacred circle or space, ask Archangel Michael and Raphael to protect and call upon your Divine for assisting and filling this space with Divine light. Sometimes if you are new the entities will get close to it trying to scare you and break your concentration, ignore them, because your protective space is protected and they can't enter or harm you. (Be specific when you raise the shield for you space, let everyone know that NOONE except your Divine can enter into that scared space and that NOONE can harm you. Since your sacred space is "programmed" then you already know they cannot come into this space so whatever they try nothing can harm you. Ignore it and shift your concentration on channeling that white light.
2- envision this white light filling your sacred space and expanding outwards. Envision your protective circle also expanding with it. Kind of like a bubble that gets bigger and bigger, but doesn't pop. Program this light energy with peace, love, protection and power. Power is important because if you feel powerful that projection goes outward with strong intent and force. Just make sure you do not use and or fear or any other negative emotions as your power point. If possible, look at this power energy as neautral, the power energy is only meant to enhance the energy you already have in your circle which is the love peace and protection. Use a crustal if this will help you focus.
3- As the bubble expands, invision it pushing out the negative energies, as if they are getting further and further away. Allow this bubble to expand over your entire house. Once the entire house is inside of this bubble. Start envisioing individual bubbles around each family member, pets and your vehicle.
4- now everything is within the protective field and safe for you to start your cleansing and clearing. For my cleansing, I use the gigantic squeegie thing at the car wash that has all the flpas and washed your car. I start envisioning the outside of my home at the edge of the property and see it spinning and circling the property. As the is spinning, it is also vacuuming up all the negative energies. Envision it going all the way around your property. Keep doing it until the energy looks clear or has a white/gold or other color you associate with completely clean. When you see this start in your home and guide it through every room of your house including over your family , pets, cars ect. Guide it to cover every corner, don't forget the attic, closets, and basements is any. Also don't forget yourself as well. Once you have finished, your house is cleansed.
5 - now for the clearing. This is to make sure any unwanted entities are gone from your house. I don't believe in talking to them or even trying to negotiate with them. It is not our job to deal with them, so don't! With this, I use this method because I saw it on charmed and it feels powerful to me, and what brings you power is what works. But basically what I do is I envision myself standing in the middle of our home. With my third eye I channel alot of white energy and hold it in the center near my chest in my hands until I feel a strong conscentration of psychic energy. When the ball feels very strong and concentrated, I take by hands and throw it forcefully outwards which creates a large blast if you will, like a ring of saturn that goes straight outwards in all directions. This blast, make sure you program it and tell it what to do, but for me, it pushes the enteties out of the house with such force and does it so quickly they usually don't expect it, lol and they are gone. I also tell them where to go. Go back to the depths of darkness where you came. Do not return and do not harm anyone along the way.
As time goes on it get's easier and quicker. For most cases it only takes me a matter of minutes, depending how detailed I need it to be and works quickly and efficiently. However it takes time and practice. After the first time, it's already programmed and the more you do it the more proficient you get at channeling energy and connecting to it quickly.
However, the most effective way to do this is trust, belief, belief in yourself and belief in the energy you are using.
I have tried other methods in the past that never worked because noone told me these enetties channeled my fears, ect. I took it personal. I stopped taking it personal because we all have our "jobs" to do, their job is to trip us up and my job is to make sure we don't trip:) I've had to overcome alot of fears about the supernatural and now I'm just like "ehhh, here we go again".
Over time, you will learn discernment of spirits. Spirits aren't light and dark and that is it. Each type of spirit is a subtle different energy pattern and when you are sensitive to energy patterns it is easier tot ell what you are dealing with. For example, you could get a spirit that feels dark, depressive and empty. They will make you feel extermely uncomfortable, but it doesn't make them negative or "evil" these types of spirits are often lost souls who are seeking someone to save them from their own private hell. Sending them to the light usually get's rid of them. But this is a completely different topic.
Being empowered and knowing you have allies on your side and knowing that your own personal power is the key, this is what helps you. One last note. Sometimes, it takes a short time to manifest energy into the physical realm. When you are working this, you are working on a spiritual realm. When you are done you will feel a lighter energy, but you may notice a couple of small occurrences of something strange, ignore it and know that it was effective. Sometimes it's a delay from spirit to physical.
I hope this helps. Feel free to use this or tweek it to where it will fit you best, after all, you have to have belief in what you do in order for it to work most effectively. Blessings to you

The Empath Blues: 4 ways to relieve Emotional Fatigue


Empath

This is awesome and so true! I get depressed sometimes and all I want is to be left alone and listen to music. Depending on the music I listen to will depend if I get sadder or feel better. Your absolutely right, the music with no words or strong emotions work so much better. Getting out in nature with Loreena McKennit on my MP3 player always lifts the mood :)

This is a great post! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!!

My advice is to not do this on your own. This type of healing works best with many people, doctors, councilors, family, friends and of course, you :) Take some time for you to recharge that battery and don't be afraid of feel guilty for doing something for yourself. You can't heal if there is no energy left to do it. When you are out running errands, ect, take a little time to meditate, pray, write in a journal, ect. Just do something for you to recharge. Others will be around to keep the positive energy flowing in your absence. Have her sign up here, she will get alot of support from the members here as well.

Keep up with the medical stuff from the doctor but also start looking into other alternative things for her as well. Maybe join a healing group with other that do energy healing locally so you can combine and increase the power, and also get support for you. It's alot of work, but go with the flow. Remember that if she becomes upset this is also positive and allows her to release. She will be going through a large range of emotions, it's ok for her to feel them, let her and then gently guide her back to hope. Listen to her. Sometime alot of healing comes by listening. Often this is when our energy is most open and strongest. Through the pain, we often fight harder.

Accept that you won't have all the answers, the only thing that matters is to not give up. Sometimes there is no answer.

One last thing, don't escape into sorrow and expect miracles. :)

To strong of a shield could also hinder the reading. It's essential to have this exchange of energy if you are doing a reading, and a strong shield could block the flow of energy. IMHO :)

I've known a person where it took me several years to finally read and it was because that person finally opened up a little however. However, even though I could not really read this person for so long, their aura or outer energy was dark. This gave me a clue. If you can't read them it's because they either have a strong shield, they are blocked, or there is a certain type of energy you are trying to read that they may not have. For example, if you are focusing solely on emotional energy and you come across a person who is sociopathic, you may not pick up any emotion from them at all. They may feel emotionless or hard. Sometimes the connection isn't immediate and the flow of energy is delayed. For most people in pain and who are wanting help, they may be the easiest to read because their emotions are very strong ad they read like an open book. It may also ve that you are looking to help people with your gift and if they don't really have any issues to fix, their energy may not come across very strong. And some people may project so little energy that they are just hard to read.

You may want to consider learning to read auras. Reading emotions is like peeling away an onion, there are many, many layers and how far you decide to go is up to you. Just know that people don't like to go that deep ad often we can see what they do not. You may also experience the shield go up in the middle of a reading if you are getting to deep ad an area they are not ready to deal with. This is a defense mechanism ad if they are not comfortable, they may not be ready for it.

As a rule, when I start reading people without them knowing, when I realize I am doing it, which i usually pretty quick, I will disconnect the energy connection. Sometimes this information is needed if it will cause a dangerous situation and you head the warning.

We all are like walking satellites, it's just that each satellite comes from a different manufacturer and may operate differently,lol. Sometimes we seek information and may be blocked from getting it because we are not meant to intervene. The whole grand design thing :) Sometimes it is us that is blocked. Start with the surface stuff and guide the information, ask what you are seeking to know, one layer at a time.

Your projecting alot of energy right now. We are like walking satellites, giving and receiving energy. You may be gong through alot of things rights, and your sensitivity is heightened, so that extra energy is being sent out at a greater force. You could try some grounding meditations and take a little learning to raise and lower your energy, usually you can visualize the energy shield around you, invision it like a bubble and visualize it extending out and then visualize it moving closer it towards your body. Then try doing this around your friends. You usually know you are projecting to much energy by the way they look at you or start acting different and confused,lol. This is a good time to try and bring that energy closer to you and raise a protective shield. I hope this helps:)

This empathic truth spell I'm under


Empath

We are truth seer's , we see through lies and demand the truth, even within ourselves. Look at the situations when you are honest compared to the ones when you are painfully honest. Chances are, they are either feeding you a line of crap and that inner instinct wants to let them know you know the truth, or you may be channeling a bit more energy from them that is deeper within that they don't see. We are often mirror reflections of people and reflect back what they refuse to see themselves, it is our way to show them the things that need to be healed. :)

Luke 17:20-21 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, "The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.

This scripture has changed my life because I realized that the kingdom of God is not a place somewhere up in the sky, it is the true realization that we are the children of the Most High God and that he is within us as much as we are within him.

The Kingdom is not something we should be standing around waiting for, it is here, it is now, within ourselves, within each other.! It's here on this planet, on Earth, it's in the many plains of spirituality, it is in life of all forms.. This is our heaven, this is our kingdom.

It is a state of being, not a destination. It's not something we see, it is something we are. We are God's Kingdom. We are not only the children that make up the kingdom, we are the temples in which the kingdom resides. The Holy place he lives and breathes his life into every single day!. He is all and he has created us to do the same.

This scripture puts into perspective on who we truly are. Find yourself and you will find God :)

You would have to read the surroudig scriptures to get a better understanding on the writer's frame of thought. Chances are this was done by a king and is a reflection of his own thoughs and muses. Though God may have inspired much that is within the bible, it is man who still was inspirited to write it and their humanity will also reflect their writing for they are, after all, human :)

Everyone will have different bleiefs and views on everything. I used to be cautious about meditation to, however I have "peronalized" my meditation sessions according to my own beliefs and comforts, and that is how is shoudl be with anything in your spiritual journey. You read, you learn and you go through a small process of "yes, i believe this is true" or " I believe part of this I will add and change it according to my needs, or simply say " no, this isn't for me" and dump it, then move on:)

The bottomline is is that spirituality is a personal journey and in order to make it personal, you have to make it your own. There is no "one -size-fits-all" to try and fit into a certain mold then it's no longer personal. You don't feel it, you don't connect with it. It's like trying to put a square bottle in a round hole. So my advice is is for you to learn about the things you are interested, ask yourself what it means to YOU, and if noone else agrees, that's ok, because the only one that needs to believe it is yourself. We create and shape our own relaities in both life and death.

Read the stories about people who had near death experiences, their experiences were all different... If it were all the same thing, then they would have the same experiences. But we weren't meant to have that, we were meant to create and shape our own lives and spiritual path. Enjoy this journey and make it your own.

As within so without :)

Blessed Be,

Angel

This is an awesome post!! I'm new to the crossing over aspect and this is very helpful. I have been struggeling with this for years, but have learned some things over the last couple of months that has really helped, which is alot like what you described. I figured out that connecting with their loved ones is often unrealistic,lol and the true "ghost whisperes" have to find other ways,lol. This post has been a blessing, thank you.

Blessed Be,

persecution comes in many shapes and sizes, religion is only but one of them. does it suck? Sure, but if she walks away over a word, then she may be someone who needs to walk out of your life.

I want to get back to this, but I have to go in in a minute. But in the meantimes, sometimes it is better not to use "labels" especially common ones, especially around those who may not understand. Sometimes people will focus solely on the word and give little thought to the whole thing. They often already have a deeper-rooted perception and it may be best not to go there when you first meet. I wouldn't hide it forever, but sometimes actions speak louder than words and sometimes we have to improvise in order to stay on common ground. Does that make any sense?

I stay away from it. My first experience was through abraham -hicks version of the law of attraction. I guess i should have started with the book, but started with the affirmation cards first. I got a weird vibe off of them, but tried them anyway's. So i pulled two cards and one basically told me that it was ok to be selfish. then I pulled another one and basically that it wanted me to affirm big things, cars, money, celebrity stauts, ect, basically, affirm greed! I'm like what??? So I read through the other cards and was floored. I threw the deck away. The law of attraction is a checks and balance within the universe. It doesn't mean that we can't dream big, but there is a fine line between simple desire and greed. Anyway's, i read the history of how they get their information and, I will simply say, i don't like it. I know there are alot of followers and don't want to offend, but there is something not right about it.

Anyway's, so I was drawn to the secret, apparently they are the same people or affiliated somehow. I realized this when I read the part about how God basically has absolutly no say in your life and you create your won life on your own. Well, if you've ever had a situation that no matter how hard you try, doesn;t work out, then it's not you doing it.

Anyway's, you must follow your own spiritual truth and what God wants you to follow, this wasn't right for me, but you must decide for yourself if it's right for you.

Blessings,

Angel

For me, when I am in close proximity, I will often "mirror" their emotions as opposed to reading them, though I am getting better at reading in proximity, it's difficult to do it. I think it's because there is no buffer from the energy and we often channel to much emotion. When I move away from the person, I can often get a better read because the emotion isn't so powerful, distance seems to help.

However, the next time you are with your friend, instead of asking her a bunch of questions and simply give her a hug, let her know that you are there for her. This may be enough to get her to open up, if not, then maybe the sole purpose is to let her know she is not alone and someone really does care. Once she has figured it out in her head, she will most likely come back and talk to you about.

There are exceptions to everything though, and if you get a strong sence of the person feeling suicidal or some destructive behavior that may cause harm , when the emotions come to you, ask yourself questions such , why is she sad, what area in her life is bothering her , but try and keep it simple, such as love/relationship/school/parents/ spiritual, ect, When you get a basic direction keep asking for more details, and notice the thoughts coming to you. The hard part is that it feels as if you are having a conversation in your head and doesn't feel like real intuition, trust the things that come to you and try and validate it. If the feeling you get feels like self-harm, by all means, don't try to do this, speak up and do something.

The energy you project will also help. When strangers come up to me and tell me their life story, it is usually when I am not feeling guarded and am pretty open, sometimes they will come when I am feeling a similar emotion as they are. If your working really hard to get answers, she will feel this. Allow the conversation to flow and wait for them to express what they need to.

Another thing that may help, but you will need to come up with your own ethical standards on reading people, is to do the above when you are further away, which may be easier to read. This is one reason I will do most of my readings on-line because it gives me a buffer from to much emotion coming through. IT takes time and practice and you can practice in the empath reading group to develop this further. The more you do, the comfortable you will become and the feedback does wonders for the confidence :) I hope this helps and wish you the best of luck!

How did you start doing readings?


Healers

lol, this is a pretty long story. I just checked the date and I have only been doing readings for 3 years, officially, that is. I've been intuitive all my my life but it was about 3 years ago when all hell broke loose in my life. My husband and I started watching a show called Ghost hunters back in 2005/2006 so we joined a ghost hunting team. At this point I had no idea I was a medium, I just knew I was connected to the spirit realm and terrified of it and looked at this as an opportunity to get over my fears. I became to involved with saving a spirit and it was pretty cool picking up the information I did. However, my mind was still not focused on psychic abilities, but conquering a fear of spirits. I was already a practicing witch and used this to also help the spirit. I ended up pissing off some other spirits that was attched to this one and the children that were with her. I think things got really bad the night I crossed over the children. It turned bad really quick and it was like I was 15 all over again when I was playing the game. They attacked me and my family. The more I still up the stronger the attacks. I started getting severe panic attacks again, like when I was a kid. It seemed to enjoy going after my kids. My oldest was thrown out a chair and one early morning my husband and I saw a basketball sized orb go into my younger kids room, within seconds my youngest woke up screaming. It got so bad that it literally forced us to move.

At that point I didn't want to have anything to do with spirits, yet it also reaffirmed to me that I was cursed. I tried blocking. However, within the first week of living in our new place, the ghosts still came. I tried bocking it out, i ignored them, yet nothing worked. My panic attacks go so bad, it literally disabled me. I was so depressed that I wanted to die. But everyday I forced myself to get up, clean the house, take the kids to the park, cook dinner. This really affected my kids because I was always so strong, they never saw me cry, not even when my ex and I split up, but now it was on a daily basis. They were scared, my husband was scared, and I was scared. I had to take back control . I realized that in order to beat the panic attacks, i had to lift my self out of the depression. I took a good hard look at all the weird things that had happened to me for my entire life, why I was a freak, figuring out if I was truly crazy and why I was always haunted. Do you realize that there has never been a house I lived in that wasn't haunted, or at least didn't become haunted after I moved in? I started researching this as well as being an Emapth. A couple years prior, a good friend of mine, who taught me the craft, told me I wan an Empath. I had no idea what it was other than it was someone who was really sensative to feelings, and thought she was mistaken because I was completely numb at that time. anyway's, that's another story,lol. So I started researching psychic abilities . For the first time I realized who I was, or at least understood the curse a little. To stay on the safe side, I used the Angels as my mentors. None of it really seemed real until I saw the Caylee Anthony Case on tv. I started getting all of this information and impressions that I wrote down and then lost. About a month or so later, there were some updates and realized the reading was accurate up until that point. So I wrote down what I could remember from the original impressions and continued to follow the story. I also realized that before I was aware of this I was already reading others including spirits , and I always did it for amber alerts. In fact, i used to astral project to help back then. I just never had a name to any of this, it was just ...natural. I didn't think about it, I just did it, no hesitation or anything. Not until I started understanding the spirit realm.

Anyway's after that we eventually moved where I had internet access. I joined a web-site that had a practice den. I did a whole bunch of readings and asking for feedback. When they came back as accurate, this boosted my confidence. But it also took me down a journey into the dark night of the soul. I had to reevaluate everything, my beliefs,, my fears, everything and this is still an ongoing process. Sometimes I wish I had never known, so I could just do what I did before, simply live and be guided by intuition and not spend so much time with knowledge and the need for understanding. However, without this, i wouldn't have learned what I know now and my abilities wouldn't have room to develop. This path was inevitable. Recently, i have been moving forward and am starting to get my strength back, but I have decided to share some of my experience with others to help them while they go through their own journey.

I see the need for this knowledge now. I used to be impulsive, reckless, but now I have a better understanding of all of my abilities. I have seen what I am capable of doing, but with this knowledge, maybe I can be even stronger than before and avoid some of the potholes I feel into in the past. This gift is truly a gift. I have learned compassion and love. I have learned to love without fear and I am being able to develop my mediumship in a much deeper way that will eventually pave the way of my life purpose.

I gotta get going, but thank you for reading this long post. Many blessings to you :)

Honey, what you are writing and what I am picking up are two different things. You know that you can't be with him, but yet, you can't live without him. But I think what you know is fear, is pain and not allowing yoursef to break down the walls with him because the connection is so close it makes you vulnerable. There is a part of you that is drawn to him and he drawn to you, and your are probably confused because it feels so strong, but your fear is that you were wrong before and you don't want it be some physical attraction thing, if your going to risk your heart, you want to make darn sure it for love. Denial from fear is what I'm getting.

I think it's ironic that you will be meeting your future spouses so close together, don't you? I also think that if you are not ready to take the risk now, you probably won't be ready for marriage with someone else in the next 6 months.

Your are totally and madly in love with this guy and it sounds like he feels the same for you. The fact that you cannot NOT talk, says it all. Besides how will future hubby feel when his wife is kissing him and wondering what it would be like to kiss the other guy?

My point is this, before you walk away from this, you need to make sure that you are absolutely sure of what it is that you actually know. If you know he is not the one, then why not? What is the purpose of feeling this connection, to make yourself miserable? Now if the signs pointed in a different direction and he has alot of female friends and not the commited type, sure...but you haven't hinted to that.

Relationships are never guaranteed to last forever. When we fall in love and share our hearts and soul with this other person, we always take a gamble. Is he worth the risk? would you be content walking away while it is still safe and wondering the rest of your life what could have happened ? You will never get the that great friendship because because the soul desires more. You can try , sure. But did you ever think that this strong connection between you is because you are meant to get together?

One more thing, start researching Twim Flame relationship :)

lol, i guess i should read the dates on these posts first, oh well, i'll keep this here and see if we get update :)
