I’ve talked quite a bit about how important it is as a perpetual psychic in training to foster a relationship with your thought stream. Initially, for me, this began as a skill necessary to differentiate between my own thoughts generated by my own consciousness, and the thoughts, words, ideas etc., put there by other beings as a means to communicate. In order to clear the line, I generally set my own thought process aside completely during readings, so that I can be sure that whatever comes through is for the client and not from me.
I understand this is easier said than done. It’s really the best skill I’ve picked up in the past year, and I use it every single day. It’s improved my practice as a medium dramatically, and it’s also improved my day-to-day experience at work, with friends and family. Trust me folks, it’s a skill worth investing in the time to acquire, just like typing, or driving, you’ll use it all the time.
Every once in a while I’ll get emails asking for personal book recommendations, and exactly how to meditate. Well, I’m not even sure how to answer that, because what worked for me clicked because of where I am and what I bring from my own life experience. It may not work for you… having said that, when I find something really cool I like to share it:
Check out Audio Dharma: http://www.audiodharma.org/
They’re on itunes as well. I just love these lectures, and the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, of observing thought, and building the skills to control and change our own thought patterns is paradigm-altering.
At some point I’ll update my “Books & Resources” tab to reflect a few other neat resources I’ve come across, meanwhile, I hope you enjoy Audio Dharma as much as I.
