More and more spiritual seekers seem to be interested in joining forces with like-minded people these days. Some of my clients have expressed their interest in being part of a psychic development group, but they actually don’t know where to begin looking for such a gathering of souls.
The people I speak to come from all over the world, and so, it’s not that straightforward to recommend institutions or classes known to me. So, my suggestion is often, if you can’t find a suitable group in your area, why not start your own? A good way to start is with a few people and meet on a regular basis. Here you will be able to share your gifts and interests.

The energy of a group is much stronger, and more vibrant than somebody trying to work on their own. Group energy does tend to encourage spirit contact; especially with regular group meetings. Such was the one I left behind when I emigrated from South Africa last year. We met once a month. A weekly group gathering is even better, time permitting.
As part of a group we often tend to develop more quickly. I liked to keep our group informal and small. One to two hours per session is usually comfortable for most people.
We always began our get-together with drinks (no alcohol where spiritual work is intended) and cake. By the time we began our actual meeting, the energy was high, just as I believe spirit likes it to be, and our more nervous participants were more relaxed too.
I always took the first step of psychic protection very seriously. I only ever omitted to do this once, and it was a lesson I wouldn’t like repeated. The spirit who visited us first was not of the best caliber!
Negativity in a group, for example jealousy when one person develops faster than the other, hinders the group as a whole. On two separate occasions, two members of our group brought our development group to a halt, and we soon realized that it was their deep-seated negative emotion which totally blocked spirit’s desire to visit.
It’s good to have some ground rules in place before you get going with your psychic circle, for example, no smoking, being on time, and so forth. I feel spirit also knows when we have a date for our psychic circle and they pitch up accordingly. If possible sticking to the same venue is helpful. The energy seems to build up in a certain place.
A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate ~ Seth Godin
Most groups have a bit of a social meeting after a session, but I always found the laughter we had over coffee prior to our session raised the vibration and was conducive to light- heartedness from our spirit visitors. More often than not, spirit had some really witty comments to add to ours when they came through with messages. Good music, candles, incense, and colored or dimmed lighting, can all add to the vibe of the gathering. Spirit loves a festive atmosphere.
Topics for meetings may include guided meditation, psychometry, aura-reading, sharing tea-cup readings, séance and many other divination and mediumship techniques. You can even let spirit lead the meeting and simply play it all by ear. Having a surprise topic, or even a surprise speaker, at each meeting keeps member interest high – they will feel they may miss out if they don’t attend.
Although our intention was to share the task of taking notes, it was always the same person who took down notes for the group records, because after years of writing on the computer, most of us found we couldn’t write legibly anymore. It may be good to make the necessary arrangements in advance.
So, if you feel you want to start a group but don’t know how, just know that “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. When you are ready to start your group, many willing souls will appear to join you in your quest. In fact, we eventually had quite a waiting list to join our original little group!
