You call or go to visit a local psychic. The moment you make contact with the person you immediately ask, “So what’s going to happen with my job?” The psychic then lays out a few cards or listens intently to see what Spirit may be saying about this situation.
After a few moments, the psychic speaks and begins to give you information that is only half right or even way off the mark. You get perturbed and exit the reading proclaiming that the psychic was not gifted, or that you had no connection with the person giving you the reading. Read the rest of this entry »
I am very excited about this because for me it is a sign that we are all opening up our hearts, minds, and souls to the unseen. More and more people appear to be interested in paranormal phenomena, and more open to exploring mysticism and the spiritual realm.
A few years ago I received a message regarding the world becoming more spiritual and more connected to source. I was shown that this shift will bring a new awakening and positive change and peace to the human race. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people desire to have a mystic experience. They wish they could see an angel, an apparition, have a vision or hear the voice of the Divine. Many people consider other individuals who have seen or heard such things as being very lucky. But luck has nothing to do with it; nor does being a saint or a strict religious person.
The key to having a mystic experience lies in taking the time to connect with the Divine in the silence of your own soul, or meditating on spiritual things. We have to connect with Spirit in order for Spirit to connect with us; and then we have to get out of our own way. Read the rest of this entry »
As a visual artist I have always been fascinated by the imagery on traditional Tarot cards. My first Rider-Waite Tarot deck felt so solid – 78 cards in a one-inch stack. They were thin, but sturdy and smooth so it was easy to shuffle them. Over time a Tarot deck picks up energy and can grow in thickness to two inches or more.
The earliest appearance of the cards arguably occurred in the 14th Century as playing cards. The symbolism had to be kept secret, because doctrines outside of church law were prohibited.
From the first time I used them my intuition immediately pinged on different energies when I looked at each one of the cards: optimism, excitement, balance. It was a spontaneous, deep spiritual energy coming from my core to consciousness. I used this method of relating to the cards long before I bought any guidebooks. Read the rest of this entry »
Magical thinking is a common trait found among all children all over the world, between the ages of approximately two until seven years of age. This time frame is also known as the ‘pre-operational stage’ of child development and it is the period in our early life when we increasingly explore our environment, and gradually learn to distinguish between ‘fantasy’ and ‘reality’.
Children at this age initially have all kinds of imaginative ideas and magical interpretations of the world, in order to make sense of their external and internal reality. At this age we still believe that we can grow wings and learn to fly; or that animals can talk and sing; or that our shadow is a magical person following us around; or that the Sun goes to sleep in the ocean; that there is a man living in the Moon; or that the wind, the clouds and the trees notice us and obey our instructions. We often also have ‘imaginary friends’ at this age. Read the rest of this entry »
I wonder sometimes if my visions and psychic impressions are absolute or completely accurate. I think this is a healthy and modest approach. I feel that with any information source one must be cautious. I have never tended towards looking for a universal answer, the meaning of life, or spiritual support. I simply applied what I had noticed in my own perceptions and began thinking about it.
Why was this mystical universe supporting this notion if it did not help us adapt to our society? If there was a function to spirituality, this was one application. Perhaps the psychic world was to some people what religion was to others. Possibly the only way to reach these people for spiritual comfort away from churches and formal religion was the mystical approach. In a world with waning religions, or with religion being seen as uncomfortable ideologies, this can be a safer place for many. This in itself is a way to reach people to do better, and I felt that this function had an evolutionary application. Read the rest of this entry »
In the study of Spiritualism, there are many words coined to cover conditions and manifestations out of the ordinary. Following are words and definitions of many of them:
1. Mediumship – The ability of human instruments to attune themselves to the vibrations of the spirit people and through peculiar chemical properties of their physical bodies to produce ectoplasm necessary for the manifestation of physical phenomena.
2. Clairvoyance – Clear seeing; soul seeing; lucidity; the ability to see with the spiritual eye those who have made the change called death and to see their names, messages and symbols written out in the ether. Read the rest of this entry »
The most exponential time of growth in children’s powers have always been traditionally around the time kids are starting to become adults, and with the changes of emotional volatility, parents must be aware of all the energies and ideas that will be available to their kids.
To children, in a position of powerlessness, with no rights to vote, work or leave their families despite their apparent maturity, this age opens up a slew of interesting, powerful and also useless notions that can leave them confused and highly susceptible.
We as adults should be doing research into psychic abilities and explain to them the difference between spirituality, religion and psychic work. Spirituality is often an amalgamation of different ideas, a blend of ideals that help a person feel better. Religion is an ordered and structured set of moral laws to accompany the spiritual ideals for people. Psychic work can be utilized in both aspects, and have been over the ages, which is where we have historical prophets. In truth though some people seem to prefer using psychics to distance others from their spiritual truths, as the mind of man will supersede the mind of god, thus allowing for both the freedom to grow but also no foundation upon which to grow from.
