Dreams and psychic development

One of the challenges many of us have when developing our psychic abilities is silencing our inner chatter, thoughts and noise enough for the subtle guidance to come through. Whether you want to meet your spirit guide or connect with a loved one on the other side, night time can be an easy way of sinking into that peace you need to work with.

My first experience of receiving messages from spirit was through my dreams, (NB you’ll know you’re not dreaming – the energy and visions are just too intense! ) and from there, everything really started developing.

If you are someone who struggles to remember their dreams but would really like to be able to for the messages they can bring, here are 3 tools to help you out and help you turn your dreams into part of your spiritual practice so that you too can make the psychic connections you really want to develop.

Essential Oils are easy to get hold of these days and so very easy to use. You have the option of dabbing the oils straight onto your skin for a direct hit or, if you want to make a bottle stretch and have your room smelling wonderful, making up a spray for your pillow. Frankincense is a well known oil for helping its user raise their vibration and be more open to the spiritual realm which is an ideal boost when you want to increase your night visions or heighten your meditation time. The only catch with this one is it can be expensive although in my book, this oil is worth it for the magic it brings to the table. The higher our vibrations, the easier it is for us to connect with spirit and achieve our psychic development goals and Frankincense is THE oil to get you there.
As an added bonus, when you apply Frankincense directly onto the skin it is the best for reducing wrinkles too! If you are looking to clean up your skincare routine alongside becoming more spiritually aligned, this is the way to do it. (and a bottle lasts a very long time!)

Clary sage will calm you, relax you, and help you regulate hormones which all leads to better quality sleep and therefore, more vision time. It’s perfect as a compliment to Frankincense, or can be used on it’s own to help you drop off and stay snoozing. My friend Kristen will help you purchase your good quality oils (they have to be pure to work so stay away from the £2.99 specials!) when you check out her website with Young Living HERE.

Crystals help with just about every goal you have! Meditating with them before sleep or tucking them under your pillow will often help with dream recall which is half the battle when it comes to receiving spiritual messages at night. 2 crystals especially good for this type of work are Celestite and Herkimer diamond. Celestite is a very high vibration stone which helps it’s user connect with the angelic realm and stimulate clairvoyant abilities, whilst Herkimer diamond stimulates psychic abilities and clears any blocks which might be preventing the flow of spiritual energy.

Finally, when remembering dreams, time is of the essence! Before sleeping, say a little prayer and ask your guides to help you remember what you dream because setting intention is a huge part of being successful. Then have a pencil and notebook by your bed and write down what you remember as soon as you wake up. Even key words can help you recall when you go back to your notes at a later date.

Over time, even if you don’t get anything that makes sense straight away, you’ll slowly start to build a picture of how you dream and the types of symbols or spiritual messages you receive. Once you have this foundation you’ll be able not only to build on the information received by asking spirit for further clarification, but you’ll show your intention to communicate, which spirit will be keen to work with and will help you develop.

Crystals for psychic development and more!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared what I’ve been purchasing crystal wise, but I’ve recently gone through a spell of shopping!

I tend to go through phases of crystal buying. Just lately I’ve been getting ready to do some ancestral healing so more than a handful of new crystals have been added to the collection.

These aren’t *all* going onto the ancestral grid, but these are the new crystals I’m currently working with. I’m particularly drawn to Carnelian at the moment… 🙂

Here goes!

Moonstone is my first new buy, from a beautiful little shop in Salisbury. Moonstone is said to enhance both intuition and psychic ability, as well as soothe the monthly cycle and ease period pain.

My new Shaman Quartz piece was a birthday present from my auntie who knows me so well and gifts me crystals to support whatever I’m working on. Shaman Quartz is wonderful for deepening meditation, supporting dreamwork, and heightening visualization. I’ve received some beautiful guidance with this in my presence!

Carnelian is said to boost energy, stimulate creative thinking, promote self belief, and support positive choices. I just feel good when wearing Carnelian. It’s a real feel good crystal and has eased my retrograde symptoms! (This one is also good for writers!)

Danburite is one of the new crystals going into my ancestral healing grid. It’s said to promote a higher state of consciousness, help leave the past behind, and support dreamwork.

Finally, Petalite is also going on the grid! Petalite is said to help us connect with the angelic realm, release negativity, cut chords tying us to the past, and boost positive energy.

Do any of these crystals call to you? Have you been buying something else? You’ll have to let me know in the comments!

Lots of love as always! X

Why meditation is vital if you want to channel

Twice this week I have been asked why meditation is so important when it comes to meeting spirit guides. So here’s the answer.

It’s true that meditation allows space for guides to come through, but in the early days of your spiritual journey in particular, meditation is vital because it allows us to learn about ourselves.

When we learn to meditate without expectation of anything weird and wonderful happening, we learn to feel for ourselves what happens to our energy during relaxation. We learn how meditation feels in general, what happens to our body temperature, what our minds tend to focus on, how various body parts feel, and what happens to our senses.

This means that when a guide or spirit comes through, (sometimes years later!) we know without doubt that changes in our energy have occured, and we are certain that the messages coming through are real.

If we skip this vital period of learning about ourselves, we can never really know for sure we are connecting with spirit because we have to rely on how others tell us we should feel during connection.

Without certainty of our own ability, we start to question whether our imaginations have come out to play and to be blunt, it IS very easy to be misled by ego when we want connection to our guides so much. When ego leads our quest for connection, it leads us to frustration and a feeling that ‘nothing is happening’ and that ‘I can’t do this’ because predictions made from this space come from human thoughts rather than spiritual channelling and are very rarely accurate.

Nobody can teach you what your default energy feels like, and nobody can teach you what guidance feels like either. It’s something you have to experience for yourself and this starts with a dedicated meditation practise and a willingness to know yourself inside out and back to front. This is why, to answer the original question, meditation is so important. How can you know something spiritual has happened if you aren’t aware of what ‘normal’ feels like?

There are a lot of ways to develop your own spiritual gifts but all of them start with this basic knowledge of self. You must be willing to put the effort in or you’ll not get very far.

If you’re ready to commit to a meditation practise but don’t want to go it alone, your tribe is only a click and a like away! We meditate, talk spirit, and enjoy a weekly card reading. Come and say hello to us on facebook and then when you realise your meditation has paid off and your guide HAS come through, you’ll have friends to celebrate your excitement with! 🙂

Might you be Clairsentient?

Today I asked my guides what I should write about, and my own psychic journey popped up. My journey is one of a psychic in training – I’ve always had a little ability to communicate with spirit, but it’s taken 15 years to get to where I am now and I still consider myself to have an awful lot to learn. Developing my mediumship skills is going to be my focus for the next decade I expect!

But things progressed rapidly for me a while back when I listened to my guides and took in what they were telling me, and I want to share the lesson with you incase it can help you on your own journey.

Psychics fall into different categories, namely clairvoyants who see spirit, clairaudients who hear it, and clairsentients who feel it, and here’s where the confusion came in for me.

20160810_180718

My first experience with spirit was seeing form in my late teens. I saw spirit and could pick up messages if they offered any and I figured this was what mediums did. Then, in my twenties, when I decided I wanted to meet with my guides, I started to push to *hear* them. I thought that was how they were supposed to come through and eventually they did come this way, though it took a LOT of practise. One guide in particular still shouts at me now because in the early days I asked him to speak up to ensure I heard him!

But then, after gaining the ability to hear guidance and thinking I was well on my way, progression stopped again. In my eyes I could see a bit and hear a bit, but I didn’t have a reliable way to connect with spirit whenever I needed to which was frustrating – I wanted guides to be available when I gave readings! I wanted to hear frequent voices like others could! How could I be psychic if I didn’t have voices inside my head?!!

Despite this lack of talent however, (this was how I perceived myself), I still seemed able to tune into guidance so I kept going with a sense of urgency to master being ‘all knowing’. And eventually the answers came through.

Here’s where my guides helped me and where the wake up you might need comes in.

Sometimes, because we have a preconceived idea of how spirit communicates, we cut ourselves off from the other ways they come through which slows our progression down. When this lesson jolted me awake I realised, in the space of a second, that even though my sight and hearing wasn’t reliable, I had *always* had an inner knowing. Instinctively I knew things. Instinctively I felt emotions, pains and fears. I knew what people wanted to say even when they were putting all their energy into convincing me otherwise. And when spirits came visiting, I just ‘knew’ what they wanted to share. If I asked my spirit guides for help for myself, I always received it too, and enjoyed the benefits of feeling supported.

But despite all this I hadn’t grasped that this was spirit’s primary way of communicating with me, and that other people couldn’t work like this with as much ease. Sure, lots of people get hunches or sense vibes from others, and that’s the start of skills developing, but I could take those vibes and go right in. I didn’t need to ask strangers what was wrong – I just knew and if I didn’t know, my guides could show me how to help. I just ‘knew’ how future events would pan out too. Future insights were available to me, just not in the form I thought they should be in. When somebody was in front of me, I could tell their primary focus and how things would play out if they took the action I knew they would or wouldn’t take, but 90% of this knowing was just feeling. I could sense the struggle, the cheating boyfriend, the denial, the health issue, the likelihood of travel coming up or a career change – I just didn’t have more than a sentence in my ear or brief image in my minds eye to confirm it! And it’s taken a while for me not to expect one!

These days I take whatever comes through in whatever form. I think often the person I’m working with influences how I receive more than the guides do. I’ve certainly noticed that I feel emotions rev up within me the more vocal a person is and I hear more around quieter souls!

Perhaps as I progress on this journey I will hear more without being shouted at, and see more too. I’d love to see more of spirit and am working on developing this. In the meantime though, I’m ok channelling messages the way I do now and enjoying the journey I’m on.

And that’s the point I want to make.
If you want to channel, you must be ready to receive and you must develop a way of life that allows you to pick up on *what* you’re being shown. Some psychics and mediums sit in caravans with crystal balls. That doesn’t mean you can’t work a different way. Spirit will work with whatever individual talents and interests you have within a time frame that suits your development so don’t cut yourself off from hearing because you’d rather see a misty image, or ignore what you’re feeling because you can’t hear too. Work with what you have! The other senses will develop naturally. Perhaps you aren’t meant to see ghosts in your bedroom – perhaps your work is to feel what your friend can’t say out loud and help the world that way instead.

How are you progressing on your psychic journey? Could you be cutting yourself off as I was?

If you’re struggling to connect, perhaps this might be why.

Love as always 🙂
