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.
