Spirit Channeling In The Trance State

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe term ‘trance’ is sometimes misunderstood in psychic mediumship. The trance state is an altered state of consciousness that enables a medium to communicate with spirit. This shouldn’t be confused with spirit possession, as depicted in some Hollywood films and television shows. There is nothing evil or demonic about mediumship and trance channeling!

In a trance state, the psychic medium’s consciousness serves as a conduit for spirit. It is a two-way communication, and the purest and most trusting form of partnership between the physical and spiritual worlds.

There are essentially two levels or types of spirit channeling, namely mental mediumship and physical mediumship.

Mental mediumship, sometimes also called ‘telepathic mediumship,’ is what most people are familiar with namely to communicate with spirit while fully conscious. Mental mediums use various levels of trance to channel spirit messages.

One of the most famous mental mediums was as the American psychic Edgar Cayce, also known as the ‘sleeping prophet,’ who channeled his higher self while in the trance state. Cayce was a devout Christian who in in a trance state with his eyes closed would answer questions on a variety of subjects, such as healing, dreams, the afterlife, past lives and reincarnation.

While mental mediumship is communication experienced only by the medium or channeler, physical mediumship is also evident to everyone who is with the medium. Mental mediumship involves only the mind of the medium, while in physical mediumship the body of the medium is used to channel information from spirit.

Physical mediumship can involve various physical manifestations of spirit energies, such as the moving of objects, table rapping, and spirit materializations. These phenomena usually occur during séances. There are not many physical mediums these days because this form of channeling requires extensive training and is a psychic practice that can take many years to develop.

I have learned more about life, people and human problems and emotions, by sitting in the dark, than I could possibly have learned in any other way – and those who have taught me the most, are people dead to this world, but who are living in the next ~ Leslie Flint

A physical medium channels a spirit energy, allowing the entity to temporarily control their physical body to communicate. This process is voluntary on the part of the medium, and requires an invitation and the medium’s consent. It is therefore not the same as spirit possession, in which control by an unwelcome spirit is involuntary.

Trance work should also not be confused with stage hypnotism. When a medium chooses to work in a deep trance, it is to channel spiritual answers and universal truths, not to entertain others or perform party tricks. Trance work is a sacred two-way contract with the spirit realm, and it is crucial to remember this. The spirits who guide and protect us have our best interests in mind, but we must also be honest and respectful of them as they provide guidance. Their answers may not always be what we expect or wish to hear!

I believe anyone can develop the ability to achieve trance states with disciplined practice. If you want to explore trance work, start simple and make a commitment to developing your channeling abilities over time. If you are just starting out, begin with a meditation practice and consider simpler modes of channeling, such as automatic writing, pendulum dowsing, or freestyle painting.

I do not reach for Spirit. When I do a reading, I always do a meditation so Spirit knows that I am ready to communicate. And as I give my speech to my client, Spirit starts letting their presence be known ~ Theresa Caputo

Experienced practitioners will in time be able to achieve a deeper trance making it possible to engage in direct channeling and spirit communication. Ask a friend or relative to be present to record events during a trance.

The most important thing to remember is that successful trance work is all about trust. It’s one of the most challenging, yet rewarding forms of psychic practice, and it can only be achieved by letting go of fear and self-doubt, which often hold us back. Start small and see what you can discover through this miraculous partnership with spirit.
