Okay, I’m lucky just to get this posted today; sorry no pics, no editing. It’s a rough draft.
It was John. I said, “Hello,” he said, “Please let us help.”
Nice choice of theme song. This is the kind of thing that’s subtle, but I know it’s not coming from me. I haven’t listened to a Beatles song in weeks, and I haven’t heard this particular song in months. Yet here it is, as pleasantly stuck in my head as “1,000 miles” by Chumbawumba in the 90s.
I got up and had a shower, and began to understand other ways I could’ve handled the spirits of the other day. I was tired. I didn’t have to address them directly at all, I could have simply asked my spirit guide, or my angels, or my friends in heaven, or my loving relatives to please take these people, spirits, to heaven where they belonged. Tut, tut, how quickly we forget our own lessons. Lesson #1, you are not alone, and you are never alone.
I then started getting all of these “ideas” for blog entries, so here I am writing. What shall we write about this morning, John?
Well, do that protection (lecture) first, people have been waiting.
Okay, I call this teaching, “So you want to be Psychic”
Guess what, you already are. It’s just a matter of figuring out where your talent and joy in the field lies, where you feel comfortable, and what you find useful. To that end, here are the absolute basics I believe, and in my experience, are invaluable when you’re going to face or embrace the world unseen, the world we don’t perceive with our eyes alone, but with our intuition, our feelings and instincts.
I’ll repeat point #1, because it bears repeating: You are not alone. You are never alone.
#2 – Ask for help. You’ll learn faster, you’ll stay safer. Reach out to other psychics, trust your instincts on whether they’re helpful for you. Reach out to your spirit guide who is available to you at any moment in the day or night. Develop a relationship with your guardian spirits, with your friends and relatives in heaven. Talk to them, even if you don’t feel a reply. You will eventually. Trust that they hear you, and when you need to ask for help, you will feel them there. I can’t promise much in this whole psychic field, but I can with complete confidence promise you that when you ask for help, it will come. When you develop a relationship with your helpers in heaven, you’ll feel them and recognize them when you call them.
#3 – Watch that ego. You’re psychic, but that doesn’t mean you know any better than the person sitting next to you. Do not impose yourself on others, always be humble and well intentioned. Ask for permission before exercising your skills. Others will tell you if they’re interested in or ready to hear anything a psychic has to say. When they do come, remember they’re not coming to you, they’re really coming to God (for lack of a better word.) They’re seeking a connection with heaven, and in this way, psychics can be the ministers of heaven for the non-religious. We have no regulating bodies, just our reputations, just the trust of others, just our own honesty and intention to help. It’s not about us, it’s about the people who are asking for help. Stay out of your own way.
#4 – Watch those emotions. Your own emotional investment in an outcome is going to affect what you see. Many psychics decide not to read futures for friends and family. This is a tough decision, since as a learning psychic, you need to reach out to and practice with people you trust, who will not judge you – friends and family. We often start out reading friends and family… and many of us have to close that door after a while. For me, I just can’t see anything happen to a friend that I don’t want to happen to them. Where my accuracy used to be spot on with friends, in the past six months it’s way off the mark. Each time I made a mistake I could clearly see, in retrospect, that it was because I was seeing what I wanted to see for my loved one.
#5 – Be free of judgement. This is a place I’ve learned to love – the judgement free mode of being open and receptive. You might see something startling, or unusual, but that part of your personality that has opinions is set aside. It is what it is, and your job is to pass it on.
#6 – Be gentle and compassionate. This is a tough one for a lot of working psychics. In order to live in that place that is free of ego and judgement, in order to achieve that state of receptivity, a lot of emotional intelligence just goes out the window. A psychic I knew as a child dispassionately relayed to my friend that her dear grandmother was going to die soon. This upset my friend, and “soon” turned out not to be for another couple of years. You can’t really filter the messages, and many psychics will ask the client to immediately take on all responsibility themselves by asking, “Do you want to hear everything?” I understand this, because you can’t be a good psychic if your intellect has to get in there to pick and choose what to pass on. You really do have to give them everything… but you can give it with love and compassion. Your gift is coming from heaven, the place of ultimate and unending love. You can pass that on with your messages too.
#7 – Pray. You don’t have to be religious to pray. Prayer can just be talking to anyone, dead or alive, it can be meditating, it can be mantra, it can be yoga. One way or another, you have to connect to that spiritual fuel station every day, and get to that place where you know you are loved and protected. Karen Hagar calls this a “Daily Spiritual Practice”. Very politically correct. Me? Screw it. I’m calling it prayer.
Someone just whispered to me: My life’s a prayer. I breath in love, I whisper hope.
It’s funny, I see this young woman completely surrounded by a disaster, maybe it’s a war. she’s walking through devastated streets, praying with every step to keep her sanity, walking through hell on earth, talking to heaven to stay calm.
George, could you please say that again, I lost the entry when I tried to save it.
It is so important to help yourself first (like putting on your own oxygen mask first before helping your neighbour/child with theirs during a plane crash). The advantage of the internet, the global economy, news, is that we can become aware of the crimes ocurring the the farthest, darkest corners of the earth. We can see the most corrupt governments, the oppressed and impovershed people, the disasterous crimes against nature. Yet even looking upon these things requires energy. It is (vitally important and increasingly so) to fill up with the light and love of heaven every single day, or else you will feel perpetually tired.
Thank you George, for repeating that. John, could you please repeat what you said? I lost it in the last save of this draft:
(he just moons me) Yeah, thanks for that. What a great way to start my day, with Lennon’s ass. Lovely. Seriously, John, you said something cool and useful. What was it?
George really said it better, he’s always showing me up (friendly smile). Okay. Thanks again to you both.
I want to say that help can come from unexpected places. As much as it’s important to remain non-judgemental of the things you pass on to other people, it’s also important not to judge others around you, who can help you. You might not like a person, but they could help you in one small and significant moment of your life. Many people turn away help at the worst moments because it’s offered by someone they don’t enjoy. They don’t want to feel beholden to that person, they don’t want to be helped by someone they’ve judged as worse than them, below them, or even above them. Sometimes there’s embarrassment.
