Receiving my first message from spirit

As I mentioned in my first post “The Awakening” my abilities didn’t really open wide until about a year and a half ago…at the age of 47.  In that time I have learned a lot!  Mid-December of last year is when I delivered my first message from spirit. I was so excited, but nervous and confused at the same time.

The spirit was a 14 year old girl who had lost her battle with cancer nearly a year before. I’ve known her mother since high school, but didn’t know if she, or her husband believed in mediums etc. We hadn’t had a close relationship throughout the years, well because life sometimes gets in the way. We reconnected a couple of years ago and have forged a strong friendship.  It’s important to note, that I had seen this girl’s  parents multiple times since she had crossed over, but always in a group setting.  On this particular day I was to have dinner with them, without being in a group setting.  I had never met their daughter.  I had seen pictures, but only pictures from when she was very ill.  About 4 hours before I was to see her parents, she came to me.  I am clairvoyant, so at that time I could only see her.  My clairaudience hadn’t developed yet (it’s progressing but it’s not consistent).  She spun in an open field with her arms out straight, in bright sunshine.  Smiling with childlike happiness. As I mentioned earlier I was ecstatic. Then, the doubt and fear set in.  What if her parents don’t believe?  Will they think it’s a sick joke?  Will they think I have lost my mind?  At this point this girl put her hands together and bent to the side slightly, and as kids sometimes do she said “pleeeeeeaaaase” I couldn’t hear the word, but by her body language and reading her lips I knew what she was saying.  I would get my courage up and decide that I was going to deliver her message.  I would find a way.  I went back and forth with the fear, nervousness and confidence all afternoon.  Every time I got scared or confused, she would once again say “pleeeeeeaaaase”.  She was showing me the same thing over and over.  Finally, I said to her, you have to show me more so that your parents are positive that it’s you.  She showed me the color of her hair. Next, she showed me her teeth.  As strange as that sounds, what she showed me was unique and not something noticeable to others.  She stayed with me for five and a half hours, until I saw her parents.  Boy was she persistent. During dinner there was finally an opening to ask my friend if she and her husband believed in mediums and messages from spirit. She told me she did, but her husband didn’t.

WHEW! I was so relieved, but still awfully nervous because I didn’t want to mess up what their daughter was communicating. I did let them know that this was the first time a spirit had come to me, and asked them to be patient if I was a bit clumsy while delivering their daughter’s message.

I then started describing what their daughter had been showing me in detail. From what she was wearing, her surroundings, to the “pleeeeeaaase”.  As it turned out the clothes she was wearing was her favorite outfit. I described her hair color, her teeth…EVERYTHING that she showed me.  As I delivered the message, her parents piped up now and then and, with smiles, and laughter and expressed that the things I was describing were things, and even mannerisms of their daughter (even the skeptical father).  Just as I was wrapping up the message, she kissed each of them on the cheek and faded away.  My friend immediately felt goosebumps as her daughter kissed her.

With teary eyes she thanked me and told me that she had been asking for some kind of sign that her daughter was at peace. It was comforting to me to see and feel her comfort.

I came home and slept very soundly that night.  The first thing I saw when I awoke, was the spirit of the girl.  She mouthed the words “thank you”, blew me a kiss and then was gone.  Every now and then she pops in for just a few seconds, always with a smile and a wave.  I’m not sure why that is, but I’m sure that in time the answer will be revealed.

If and when you receive a message from spirit it’s vital that you do not add your interpretations to the message.  Many things may not make sense to you, but the message will mean something to the intended recipient.  We are the conduit between the spirit world and the physical world.  It is also important to relay everything.  I we don’t, the spirit will come back, and for lack of a better word, pester you until their message is delivered correctly, and in full.

God has given me a precious gift.  A gift that brings comfort to both spirit and the loved ones that need to receive the message. I am grateful for that every day.  Never will it be taken for granted.

Blessings to all!

Protect yourself while you continue to learn about your abilities

Grounding and Meditation are very, very important when you have any kind of sensitivity.  And you may find that you several going on all at once. As important as grounding and meditating is protecting yourself.

I am a psychic medium and an empath. It seems pretty straight forward doesn’t it? I have learned there are many sensitivities/abilities that work together to make up the classifications “psychic medium” and “empath”.

More than likely you, like I, are experiencing one or more if “the clairs”.  In my experience it is “the clairs” that roll up into more broad titles in the psychic world.  See below.

Clairvoyant (clear seeing), Clairsentient (clear feeling), Claircognizant (clear knowing or intuition), Clairalience (clear smelling), Clairaudient (clear hearing), Clairgustance (clear tasting).

Talk about sensory overload!

Now it’s time manage them and protect yourself (while you continue learning). It is important to protect yourself for your own well- being. No matter the ability or abilities you have one of the most important things to learn in the beginning is how to protect yourself! Grounding and meditation play a big part in protection, however, there are other ways to protect yourself.  Ask the universe, your spirit guides, and your angels to allow only positive energy and experiences to enter your energy field. You may not have connected with your spirit guides or angels yet, but they are with you and they do listen.  The key is, you have to ask them for what you need.  It is also very important to thank them and let them know that you are grateful for their help and all of the blessings in your life.

At the beginning of my meditations, as I focus on my breathing, I envision a while light coming downward into the top of my head (where the crown chakra is located).  I visualize the light pouring down over my body forming a bubble around me.  This white light is protection given by the divine universe.  This is not limited to meditation.  I take a moment to envision this white light when I feel that I need to do so.  As an empath this is particularly helpful when I know I am going into a very high energy situation, large crowd or am going to be around someone that I know carries negative energy of any kind.  I even do this before going into a doctor’s office.  Empaths pick up all energy that they encounter. Even energy that is left behind by others.  If I don’t protect myself, I pick up that energy and unknowingly project those emotions onto others. Not protecting yourself can also drain you mentally and physically. That energy stays with me until I cleanse my own energy.  Sometimes I do this by using a sage stick and surrounding my body top to bottom.  I repeat “All negativity and darkness must go, only love, light and peace may enter”. Taking a bath or shower as described in my last post is my other go to since it is my favorite.

Cleansing and protecting your home is also very important. Whether it be spirit or energy that comes into your home with other people it’s important to protect your space by cleansing it on a regular basis.  The easiest way that I have found and is most widely used is smudging.  It’s easy to do and it works.  Get your sage stick and light the end of it using a lighter or clicker (a lighter that is used for lighting candles, BBQ grills etc.). Once lit turn the stick up side down and let the flame envelop the end, then blow it out.  You will probably have to blow on the end of the stick to get the embers within to keep the embers hot and smoking.  Once you have smoke coming off of it you are ready to start. I simply move my arm in a circular motion repeating “No darkness or negativity is allowed in this space.  Only love, light and peace may enter”. I do this through every room in my home.  It’s important that every door and window in the house has been smudged (I go all the way around each door and window).  Once completed put the stick out in a safe container. I use an abalone shell.  You can also put it out by gently rubbing it on the earth. Not only does this cleanse the energy in your home, but it will help to keep negative or dark spirits out.  I do this about every 2 weeks, but if my intuition tells me I need to do it before the 2 week mark then I do it.  Listen to that intuition. 😊

There is so much more to protection (which I will talk about in another post).  The methods listed above will do the trick no matter how many other methods we discuss.

As always, please leave your questions and comments for discussion.

Blessings to all!
