The History Of The Ouija Board

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comIn my opinion the Ouija board is actually not a modern invention. The original concept of the board probably dates back to ancient Babylonian and Egyptian times. I imagine those who were familiar with the mysteries, made their own boards using clay tablets and a pendulum to collect information on just about any subject.

The Ouija board we know today was introduced in the late 1840s when Spiritualism became popular among occultists and secret societies. It was initially more complex, because their methods would involve knocking on the floor in response to letters being called out from the alphabet. Or they would use an intricate device that would have a pencil attached to it, allowing the spirits to guide the inquirer to the letters or numbers on the board.

In 1890, Charles Kennard and some of his colleagues, had the idea to turn this divination tool into a toy. They came up with the name Ouija, because it means “good luck” in Kemetic, the oldest known Egyptian language.

Through The Eyes Of A Medium

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI am blessed to work side-by-side with my husband teaching various spiritual classes. Mediumship development is a significant part of our class offerings.

My husband and I have very different teaching styles and receive information from Spirit quite differently. This allows us a combined knowledge and experience base to work from. Our unique gifts and personal approaches have been a godsend in teaching students how to receive and understand messages in order to be able to do mediumship readings.

Over the years we have found that many people start out with grand expectations of how a connection with Spirit will happen; and how easy it will be to make sense of the whole session (whether as the reader, or the receiver). Quite often, we see our students become frustrated when something magical or miraculous doesn’t happen in their readings, especially in the beginning.

The Cat Whisperer

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI recently had to take my cat, Max, to the vet. He hadn’t been feeling well and I woke up one morning sensing I needed to call the vet. I am glad I did, as he had an acute urinary tract infection. Male cats are more prone to getting these type of infections.

His medical emergency took me back to a time when I first felt the need to adopt cats. My best friend, who was an up-and-coming veterinarian at the time, encouraged me to adopt kitties. I felt at the time I couldn’t even have just one or two, because I didn’t want the responsibility, but as the years passed, I wound up adopting six in total!

What was very special to me about adopting these fur babies, was that my vet friend passed away in 2007. Her death impacted me to the point where I became despondent, until I adopted my first baby in 2009 in her memory. The rest is history. I would often joke with my ex that it was my dearly departed friend’s fault for us having so many cats.

It seemed like we adopted one after the other in a short period of only two years. Max was the last kitty we adopted. I didn’t want him at first, thinking we already had too many as it was. My ex had asked me three times in one week if I wanted Max, as he knew the owners and they were going to return him to the shelter. His previous owners didn’t want another cat, since their first cat ran away and returned to their home one night.

The Dearly Undeparted

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI never thought I would spend some time in a severely haunted house, yet it ended up being a really interesting experience. It had not only one main spirit, but several others. I was able to document several incidents that were very interesting and it also seemed to have a very strong opinion, as if it were still very much of this world.

It must have been an older spirit from the turn of the century, perhaps an old revolutionary, or perhaps an military personality. The home was known to paranormal investigators as a place of interest. The communication I received was aimed at me… and yes, it always worked better at night!

What I know from the places I have lived and worked in, spirits do not need one area to reside in. They can occasionally wander. This was the case, for example, in one in the fields in which my family resided, in which you would see the farmers from the original farmland traversing with their agricultural equipment, and perhaps even their horses from the days of the pioneers.

Although I do not enjoy mediumship, nor advertise it for work, I do find dimensionalism interesting, and the assignation of personality through it fascinating. The personality that I encountered at the haunted house was highly protective and incredibly powerful, even though it did not present as an apparition. Continue reading

Postcards From Spirit

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comSpirit messages often remind me of old-fashioned postcards and modern day text messages. As a child I loved receiving postcards from family and friends all over the world. Postcards were a way to see other places and how other people lived, before the era of texting and social media. Postcards were a way to send short messages just to say I’m thinking of you, similar to the way my grandchildren these days send each other short text messages… while they are in the same room!

Postcards and text messages have another similarity. Sometimes the messages are abbreviated and the person reading the message may not always understand exactly what the sender was really trying to say. And as it is sometimes necessary with postcards and texting, spirit messages often also require us to ‘connect the dots’ or read between the lines.

People may read or hear the same message, yet get several different meanings of what the sender was saying. This is one reason a person can have readings with several different psychics, mediums and diviners, and come away from them very confused, because the readers interpret messages differently. For this reason it is best to find one or two readers you feel comfortable working, instead of consulting with too many different readers. Continue reading

Rescue Work – Learning To Help Lost Souls

Click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comRescue sessions intrigued me from the very start of my mediumship career. In order to facilitate a rescue, several times per year the advanced mediumship class at my spiritualist church would sit in a meditation circle. Reverend Doreen would then go through a process to invite people to come through, if they wanted or needed help. These were people who had passed into Spirit but were confused as to their current whereabouts or circumstances, and didn’t know what to do next.

About eight of us would sit quietly on our chairs until someone came through to one of us in the circle. We spoke in their ‘voices’, sometimes even using their accents. Reverend Doreen would question them as to their names, occupations, the last thing they remembered, and so on. These stories were fascinating and came from all realms of life here on the earth plane.

Becoming A Medium

click photo for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comAfter my first encounter with spirit in 1987, at a mediumship evening at a spiritualist church, I started attending Sunday services regularly. This was not because I had suddenly become overtly religious. It was just to get more spirit messages during that particular part of each service! I was totally mesmerized by the whole concept of communication with the spirit world and enjoyed hearing the messages given to others almost as much as those that were given to me.

One evening, I received a phone call from my friend Betty, whom I had met at the church. She ran both the weekly meditation and healing evenings. She explained that there was a registration sheet for upcoming mediumship classes and that my name was on it. I informed her that there must be some mistake, because I hadn’t put my name on any list whatsoever. She laughed and said that she had put my name on the list, because after getting to know me during her evening programs, she had a feeling that I would enjoy the classes. Continue reading
