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 deceased loved ones, as well as psychic information from people’s energy fields is a part of daily life as a modern mystic.

We all have a third eye, which enables us to see the spirit planes and astral realms. If our third 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.

But before we can do this, 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.

You want to develop your mediumship skills the right way.

How to make sure you’re doing it right

Step 1 : You need a clean and clear third eye (Chakra six)

The only way to know that it’s likely you’re communicating with good spirits and getting accurate information, is by having a healthy chakra six.

Your third eye is located in the centre of your forehead, and it’s called your “seat of spiritual sight.” Your physical eyes see the world around you—your third eye sees the psychic and spiritual realms.

If your chakra six is not working properly, your impressions will be murky, or not happening at all.

If you can’t see clearly where you going, or who you are communicating with, you can’t be discerning.

Having a healthy chakra six is the springboard to your mediumship-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 get exciting when we discover our gifts. But wanting to try out our new abilities by stopping people in the street to give them a message, or pestering our family and friends with information from their guides is overstepping boundaries.

It’s an invasion of privacy, and uncool. Don’t do it.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t ever share your impressions. You should. If asked. Or if you feel you absolutely must share something with someone.

Otherwise keep it to yourself.

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 modern mystic and medium is that “like attracts like” in the Universe.

Beings of your vibration are naturally “tuned in” and attracted to you.

You also need to know that the astral and spiritual planes are full of all different types. (Just like here on earth.)

Some beings are highly conscious and loving. Others unconscious and deceptive.

The only way to safely navigate through the spirits realms is to know your own shadow.

If you know your weak points and are clear about where you are vulnerable, then you can protect yourself. If you know you have an ego and do something to keep it in check—things like, self-reflection, meditation, chakra work, mindfulness—you can avoiding being sucked in by lower entities, which want to either manipulate you, or drain your energy.

Also, if you know you have a shadow, you also know that you have your own wounds and trauma. And when you’re clear about this, you are more likely not to project your trauma onto others.

Over the years, I’ve met many psychics and healers that don’t receive and give accurate and helpful information because they project their own trauma (shadow) onto their clients.

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!

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 psychic ability and will be able to easily discern the fraudulent from the factual.

This is spiritual discernment, and when you learn to use it, you’ll become a powerful mystic, medium and healer.

    Wonderful post! So exciting! I hear voices, of the living, the passed, and those that say they are angels and guides. It started when I was deep in drug addiction. I am 8 years clean now. The voices have changed significantly to mostly positive and insightful. I am doing your chakra cleanse several times a week, and the white light healings on Mondays. Should I listen? How can I be sure they are good? & pleasing to God? What about the voices of the living? Why/what am I hearing?
    You are a blessing to the world, I truly believe that.

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Tina,

      Thank you. The stronger your energy field becomes – with your chakra work + the help of the White Light – the easier it will be for you to discern if these voices are helpful.

      There is no point in just being “plugged into” what is going on around you, by that I mean hearing all the voices of the living + dead, how exhausting would that be!,but if you could only pick up what is good advice coming your way, then it would be beneficial.

      Ask the White Light to help you only tune in to what is helpful and serves you and others.

    Thank you for replying! I will!

    Do you think what I’m hearing is real or mental illness?

    Dear Belinda,
    My boyfriend became actively suicidal this summer and twice he turned against me with his family and they blamed me and ostracized me. Well, that was so hard emotionally, however it seems they’ve closed me out of a very unhealthy situation, so I may have been protected from something worse.

    Why is it so hard for me to stop thinking about him and being concerned for his well-being? Sometimes the thoughts of him come in such a heavy stream. Is this a karmic learning? Have he and I been interfered with by negative entities? Is that what suicidal thoughts and actions are? If so, could they be from his childhood when he sustained terrible beatings from his parents or from the years in the Marines when he underwent terrible prisoner of war trainings?

    As a healer, I was taught that unconditional love can transmute even the darkest dark. This situation was beyond me and I wonder about it and what I need to learn.

    Thank you for your White light service! It has been such a blessing for me.

      Hi Esellie,

      Could it be that it is because you are a healer and that you can’t heal him, that you can’t let it go because you feel helpless? You feel bad cause even though you have the healing ability, it didn’t work for him?

    Hi Belinda,I’m fascinated with your spiritual work.can you please give me some advice as to how I may clear all the clutter away and open the doors to spiritual awareness and abundance.I’m chakra cleansing regularly but I seem stuck.

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Gary,

      Do you regularly receive the White Light? If not, I would start there.. I would also recommend that your read and study the book, “The Power of Now,” by Eckhart Tolle. This book helped me heal many blockages.

    hello Belinda D.
    ever since I can remember and after the passing of one my cousin Ive had a yearning to be a part of the spiritual world.I ve put it off due to fear but for the longest now I don’t know if by coincidence or chance, I keep running into what I like to think of as sign to follow thru with opening open to the spirits. everytime I pass the commentary by my house I feel something I cant explain it a feeling like I ve lost something of loneliness and love at the same time its very confusing. I feel like there’s someone with me at all makes me want to follow thru. but I have an understanding that this is a gift and I would use it for good its just I am scared and have no guidance…..please help…… thank you in advance MaRi

    Hi Belinda,

    At a mediumship circle earlier this year, I described a meditation vision I had where I was being tricked and not sure whether I could trust the being I was interacting with, though the meditation’s purpose was to connect with our guides. Another member of the circle told me that she saw this being hunched over me, that he was a trickster and was around me a lot. I left feeling confused and scared, not knowing what to do with that information. It has stayed with me ever since and prevented me from further exploration. I have felt a lot of fear and anxiety around this and would like to move past it to receive positive guidance. I meditate daily, but fearful thoughts seem to have a strong hold lately.

    yes I feel sprits around me all the time but can not hear or see them and don’t know any training to help me get to that point I some time feel like im go insane like there trying to tell me something but they cant because it feel if tho a barrier blocks the way

  9. Birgitt

    I took a workshop once with a psychic medium and he said, that only mediums can communicate with people on the other side and that you can’t become a medium you have to be born as a medium. But from all your teachings it sounds like you may possibly be able to communicate with the other side if you raise your vibrations enough. So there is still hope for us “not born mediums”? I dream of deceased family members once in a while and those dreams seem so real and I remember them well, I always thought they came to visit me, but I can’t connect to them during waking hours.

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Birgitt,

      I don’t believe you can only become a medium if you were born this way. You can certainly develop it and I’ve helped many people do this:)

  10. Sandy

    My daughter had a similar experience as R above. In a spiritual activation class while connecting with our guides she saw her beautiful guide but then another guide took over and got angry when my daughter didn’t want to work with him. He physically dug his finger into her shoulder and caused actual pain. She was shaking! The teacher said it was her guide but why would he be such an ass? Why couldn’t she work with the beautiful woman who wasn’t threatening or scary? We quit the class.

    • Belinda Davidson

      Hi Sandy,

      Evolved beings would never push to get in front in line or inflict pain on us in this way.
