How to Know You’re Communicating With Good Spirits

How to Know You’re Communicating With Good Spirits

Receiving messages from people that have passed over, advice from our spiritual guides and mentors as well as psychic information from people’s energy fields is a part of daily life as a modern mystic.

We all have a 3rd eye, which enables us to see the spirit planes and astral realms. If our 3rd eye chakra is working properly and if we’ve learned to be ‘spiritually discerning,’ we can help others by;

  • connecting them with their loved ones on the other side
  • offering them excellent tips and advice from their spirit guides, and
  • sharing our impressions of their energy fields and chakras with them.

However, before we can begin to embark on our ‘medium-ness,’ we need to know how to make sure we are receiving accurate information and impressions. We need to understand how psychic ability and the spiritual planes work so that we can be sure we’re communicating with good spirits, and getting good information.

How to make sure you’re doing it right

Step 1 : You need a clean and clear 3rd eye (Chakra 6).

The only way to know from the ‘get go’ that it is highly likely you are communicating with good spirits and getting good information, is by having a healthy chakra 6.

Your 3rd eye is located in the center of your forehead and it’s called your ‘seat of spiritual sight.’ Your physical eyes see the world around you, whereby your third eye sees your soul as well as the psychic and spiritual realms.

If your chakra 6 is not working properly your impressions and what you ‘pick up’ will be murky or non-existent. Also, if you can’t see where you going or who you are communicating with, you can’t be discerning.

Having a healthy chakra 6 is the springboard to your medium-ness. Without it, you won’t get far.

Step 2: Keep your ego in check.

Being psychic and able to see and communicate with spirits doesn’t mean you need to share your impression with everyone you meet.

I know many of us become over-zealous when we start out but wanting to try out our new found gifts by stopping people in the street to give them a message or pestering our family and friends with ‘important information’ from their guides, is simply rude. And, not at all in alignment with the law of free will.

I’m not saying that you shouldn’t ever share your impressions, you should, and sharing them with people who want to hear from you is a great way to flex your medium-muscles, but you need to be able to discern when you’re doing it to be of service, and when you’re doing it to show-off.

If you regularly work on your chakras and practice mindfulness, you’ll be able to tell when to act and when to hold back. Yes, there have been times when I have told complete strangers what I ‘saw’ but when I look back over my life – and I’ve been in the ‘psychic business’ for almost 15 years now – those times were few and far between.

If people needed my help, they mostly sought me out. So, be a cool psychic cucumber and let them come to you.

Step 3: If you don’t work on your shadow you’re in big trouble.

The most important thing you need to know about being a medium is that “like attracts like” in the Universe, and that Beings of your vibration are naturally tuned in and attracted to you.

You also need to know that the astral and spiritual planes (just like here on earth ) are full of all types of beings, some highly conscious and loving, others unconscious and deceptive.

There is a wide spectrum of vibrational influences out there, the highest being God, then the Angels, and the very lowest being fearful, egoic entities.

The only way to safely navigate through these realms is to know your own shadow. If you know your weak points and are clear about where you are vulnerable and perhaps easily swayed to believing something false, then you are protected.

If you know you have an ego and do something to keep it in check – self-reflection, meditation, chakra work, White Light and mindfulness – you are avoiding being sucked in by lower entities which want to either frighten you or pander to your ego.

Our egos love to be scared stiff. They feed on fear and violence, and if we don’t have our egos in check, there are a host of entities that will happily fulfill our ego’s needs.

Egos also love to hear all about how amazing, one of a kind, and absolutely ingenious they are. If you don’t have yours in check, and you start to explore the spirit and astral realms, you are going to find many beings that are willing to aid you in your self-aggrandizement.

If you have spirits scaring you or buttering you up with great plans of your world domination, you know you’re talking to tricksters. Don’t freak out. Just get out of there!

Step 4: You don’t need to protect yourself to keep yourself safe, you need to be honest with yourself.

Over the years many people have asked me what they can use to protect themselves from bad spirits. I’ve been sent crystals to proof, asked if different prayers deflect bad spirits, watch friends ‘spook proof’ their houses and have even watched a man bless his healing room for 30 minutes, calling out every angelic name he could, so that the space would remain safe!

Many people are looking for the foolproof protection device but you aren’t going to find it out there. You can only find it by being honest with yourself, and staying dedicated to keeping your vibrations raised and pure.

Happiness is the best defence against bad spirits and their bad advice. If you want to get it right, get your energy field right. Work on your chakras, keep your vibrations raised and be mindful of your shadow.

That way, you’ll be more accurate in your psychic ability and will be able to easily discern the fraudulent from the factual.

This is spiritual discernment and you need to learn to use it.

In these changing times, we’re getting more ‘plugged in’ and for many of us, our psychic sight is suddenly getting switched on. This is wonderful and the next step in our evolution, but you need to know the pitfalls.

Don’t be afraid to embrace your psychic/medium -ness just because there are a few lower spirits wanting to run amok. Be brave. Step out there.

If you keep your feet firmly planted on the ground while in the spirit realms, you’ll soon be able to help others heals and offer them fabulous life-coaching advice as well as explore the gorgeous landscapes of the higher realms.

in White Light + Love,

    Hi Belinda,

    I was told a curse from past life was put on me at a Tarot card reading a year ago. Others have said this can’t be. I have felt something regarding this curse for more than 10 years now. So I think it could be. Monday my White Light Healing was to release this. I woke up today feeling so light and no hold on me as of yet! I feel so a life today… YES!!!!

    Thank you. So grateful to have found you!
    Kelly 🙂

    I am so grateful to have found you!

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Kelly,

      I wouldn’t call it a curse, I’d say, somewhere along the line in your incarnations you’ve been programmed negatively. It happens to most of us. It can feel like a “curse,| but I prefer to say “negative programming.”

      Yes, the way to release it is by receiving the White Light and working on your chakras. Good work!

    Thank you for this insight. For the past 2 years I have been able to see and talk to angels and spirits. Most I encounter are positive and loving. Belinda’s practices above are right on – keep your vibrations and your intentions raised and keep the ego in check.

    Dear Belinda,
    I had the most strange experience yesterday. During my chakra cleanse, I felt as if you and your guides were working on my field, that was very damaged. I remember they asking me if I felt “guided” sometimes and I said “yes” and they said “It’s not a good guide”. I asked how could I know if that was really happening, and they’ve said that you would write an article about it the next day (it was monday — 19.08). And today I was amazed by this article! After reading, I’m wondering, isn’t it a pitfall of my ego, misguided by some entities? or an attempt to “self-aggrandizement”? I feel confused. How could you be really working on my energy field if we’ve never met?

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Andressa,

      Wow. You really are plugged in! To know I was going to write an article about this today. Amazing…..

      And yes, I do work together with the White Light angels directly on people’s energy fields. It is one of my gifts. I do this for all of the people that are taking School of the Modern Mystic Level 1, as well as all the people on my Monday white light list. It doesn’t sound at all to me like you are being misguided. You are been given very accurate information. Congratulations.

      But the message was also that you weren’t always getting good guidance, so from now on ask my guides. They seem to be going a good job for you! LOL.

        You are laughing??? I’m scared!! Never happened before, I don’t “preview” anything. Ever. I’m feeeling much better tough. Let’s see how it goes. Much light to you <3

          Hi Belinda,

          I wrote this almost one year ago, and it doesn’t scare me anymore 🙂 But I’m still in doubt and never asked anything to your guides, because how will I know I’m really receiving their inspiration, and it’s not coming from other sources? I’m at a point in my life where each step counts and really needing guidance.

          Thank you <3

    I love this article Belinda and thank you for your White Light healing and Level 1 course so we can stay happy and attracting such beautiful beings into our lives.

    As I was reading this, I noticed how amazing it is that I always sense my guardian angel behind me, as if he knows the absolute best thing I could use right now is a reminder that yes, my shadow is there, and no, I don’t have to give into its negative energy (and if I ever forget I literally peek behind me, and feel his comforting reminder!).

    I’m so excited learning from you Belinda and PLAYING with these tools that are re-align my energy field so that my intuition can become clearer and clearer (guiding me in my own life as well as the lives of my clients!).

    Hi Belinda,
    I once had a mantra that I would repeat many times a day – “I am open and receptive to all that is good and the abundance of the universe”
    After many days of conciously and unconciously repeating this I started to notice ‘presences’ with or near me all the time – though I never ‘saw’ anything. I freaked out and stopped saying my mantra pronto.
    Some 10 years late/ wiser, I am wondering would this be a good mantra to re -introduce, to encourage kind and loving angels to surround and support me? I guess I am concerned if I re-open that energy I may not be prepared for what I find.
    I do your charkra cleasne meditation at least 3-4 times per week.
    Many thanks x

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Tory,

      Yes. I think it’s a good mantra. You are also doing the chakra cleanse, so this will help you keep your vibrations high and aligned with highly evolved beings.

  7. phoebe

    Hello! I was wondering about crystals & fairies, I feel drawn to connect with them & work with those nice nature spirits that are helping the planet, but I’m not too sure how too & I’m a bit scared! Warm regards, Phoebe.

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Phoebe,

      Don’t be scared. The only reason you are scared is because we have a highly negative view of spirits and ghosts. It deeply saddens me to see so many people continually flocking to the movies to watch terrible and violent movies like “The Exorcist”, or “The Conjurer.” Poor ghosts! No wonder they are so feared…..

      If you are working on your chakras as well as receiving the White Light regularly, you can safely ask to be in contact with them. If at any time, you feel it is “too much,” simply ask them to retreat.

      Spirits are used to this, and they honour the Law of Free Will.

    Dear Belinda, there are really souls, the deceased did not go into the light, stuck in between-worlds. Or go over all souls into the light? Thanks for the wonderful post. Love and Light

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Ulla,

      Unfortunately there are souls that don’t go over into the light and remain earth bound. These are ghosts. The ones that move over I call spirits.

      Ever since I can remember, I’ve seen and working with ghosts. I help them move our into the light. Ghosts are the loneliness and most misunderstood beings on the planet. You can read all about why I’m a ghost activist here,

  9. Arie

    Hi Belinda,
    Where do orbs fit in? You know, the mysterious mostly ball-shaped light forms visible when using your camera with flash at night.
    Sometimes ghost like smokey forms also appear.
    Can they be harmful?

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Arie,

      I’ve never seen or had an experience with orbs so unfortunately I can’t tell you. Perhaps someone reading your comment will answer you?

    • phoebe

      Yes psychic Diana Cooper talks alot about orbs, you could look up her website. I’m not too sure about them either I had wondered the same question but hadn’t looked into it as yet.

  10. Samantha

    Wow Belinda. You are amazing! I have just completed my first Chakra Cleanse and am feeling fantastic! Thank You.
    I am open and receptive to being in touch with the spirits and angels and look forward to being able to connect with them.
    I am so excited to connect with you more and will do the White Light Intensive and Modern Mystic Courses as soon as my manifestations come to fruition!
    So pleased to have found you.
    Thank you

It doesn’t matter how much you “get done” or achieve. If it isn’t coming from high vibration and a mindful state, you aren’t attributing anything of true substance to the world.

Struggling to stay focused when you’re meditating? Can’t get through a whole chakra cleanse? Can’t stop the monkey mind? Or perhaps you want to go deeper into each one of your chakras and feel and experience the power and magic of your amazing energy field and energy anatomy?

In the flicker of an eyelid, Life on Earth will be over And you’ll take your last breath Inside your beautiful body That housed and held you for this incarnation….
