Why I Decided to Found a School for Mystics

Why I Decided to Found a School for Mystics

I wasn’t easy for me growing up as a psychic.

It wasn’t only because I saw and knew too much – I learnt very early on that people usually don’t like it when you told the truth – it was also because psychic stuff was deemed freakish and weird.

When I was eleven I was exorcised by our church’s pastor because it was believed that there were “demons” in me, and that these demons were responsible for my psychic gifts and the paranormal activity that took place in our family home.

We often had “hauntings” happen, and because I was a child that knew and saw too much, it was assumed these hauntings had to do with me.

The pastor was right and wrong in this assumption: ghosts did hang around me because I was psychic and wanted help from me to move over into the light but not because there was something wrong with me.

Not because I was possessed or a freak. But because I was a natural born medium, and was able to see and communicate with them.

But none of this made sense to me growing up, and it certainly wasn’t cool or something I wanted to share with my girlfriends.

So I didn’t talk about the ghosts I saw, or the things I could see inside people’s energy fields, or the prophetic dreams I had a night.

I thought that in order to survive, I needed to hide this part of myself as much as I possible, so I pretended to be someone else.

And this I did throughout my childhood and teens years.

But when I was twenty I had an experience that changed my worldview drastically: I spend time on Aboriginal Communities in the desert in the Northern Territory.

For some years, my father worked as a flying doctor and I had the unique opportunity to visit him on several remote communities that you could only access by plane.

Here, in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by ochre coloured desert sand, mammoth rocks and river holes teeming with fish, bird and crocodiles, I experienced psychic and paranormal phenomena that was deemed “normal.”

To see ghosts, heal with your mind, talk to the ancestors, avoid certain places because of their negative energies and “know” and be able to track where other people were in the massive expansive of the desert, was culturally accepted and a part of life for the Aboriginal people.

The Aboriginal people I met and spend time with were like me: psychic, “knowing” and mediums, and through their abilities were able to help, support and heal each other.

During this time of traveling between Sydney and different remote communities, I  also met many people who had, like myself, experienced psychic and supernatural phenomena but didn’t know what it was or how to deal with it.

Many of these people were also fascinated by intuition and psychic ability, and wanted to learn how to use it and heal with it. So I began to study my own abilities and work out how I knew what I did, and how I could help others. 

Slowly but surely it became clear to me that my life’s purpose was to help other modern mystics embrace their psychic and healing gifts, so that, together, we can bring awareness, understanding and acceptance to one of the most misunderstood parts of ourselves.

So I began teaching and talking about psychic ability and intuition…

When I first started teaching and lecturing, people were much more closed minded and fearful. But nowadays, there is a spiritual revolution afoot, and many people want to embrace that “missing” intuitive part of themselves!

I firmly believe that we are all psychic and can heal ourselves and others but due to society, conditioning, fear and dominance of the left hand brain hemisphere we have, largely, shut down these intuitive and soulful facilities. It’s time to claim it back!

I founded School of the Modern Mystic because I wanted to give people the opportunity to take back what is rightfully theirs: their psychic, healing and intuitive abilities and use them to change their lives and those of others.

How to stay calm and confident in a world going crazy

Is this missing from your spiritual practice?

In a world filled with polarity, hatred, violence, division, and chaos, we can be the bearers and bringers of the light by practicing loving compassion towards ourselves and others. Practicing loving compassion isn’t a difficult thing to do. It simply means trying to see the light in others—or the shadow: the hurt, pain, and suffering.

Having spiritual discernment in the New Age

It’s important not to confuse metaphysical skill with spirituality. Not all people that display strong psychic, healing, or magical abilities have your best interests at heart.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

Dear Friend, You are deeply loved, more deeply than you know. The entire fabric of the Universe is made up of love, and you are a tiny thread in that fabric of the Universe. You are love. Breathe in deep, and feel the fullness of love all around you.

Life has served me some severe blows in the last two years. I’ve experienced deep loss and pain, that at times, makes me feel like I don’t want to take another…

Belinda Davidson - Modern Mystic

Yesterday I gave an impromptu Facebook Live.It was in response to something I posted a few days ago, where I talked about living with a neurological condition, and the trauma of being in and out of emergency last year with massive migraines, seizures, and vertigo attacks.

How to stay strong in your energy (and not get dragged down by others)

I’m sure you’ve had the experience. You’re talking to someone and suddenly you feel strange. It doesn’t happen right away—somewhere about 15 - 20 minutes into the conversation. An odd spacey feeling creeps over you. The person keeps talking. You’re listening, nodding, agreeing. All the while, the odd feeling grows. You’re feeling more and more drained. Flat, too.

Belinda Davidson, You Spoke. I Listened. And This is What I Created for You

Sometime last year, I asked people subscribed to my newsletter how I can better serve them. I asked them to fill out a questionnaire, telling me about their stresses, struggles, challenges, as well as deepest wishes and desires. 1,202 people filled out the questionnaire. I read each and every one of the responses, multiple times. Being helpful and of service to you is important to me.

Belinda Davidson, Be Blessed. Not Stressed

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?
