Sensory Field Trips: The Power of Your Senses to Access Your Psychic Ability

Psychic Ability Happens Through Your Senses (Sense-Abilities)

All Sense-Abilities are avenues by which to see the world as it really is. Psychic abilities without a purposeful intention to do good for others are skills that can be learned and, as such, are merely skills. Skills are just that—skills. Psychic awareness, psychic abilities, psychic creativity, and spiritual growth present opportunities for supernatural practices to serve personal growth and the needs of humankind. When psychic potential is unleashed, and you can see what it manifests, you know that it is probably worth your while to pursue it.

Sensory Field Trip: Step One to Access Your Psychic Self

But first things first. Decide the focus your psychic ability will take. Connecting with your higher self, your sixth sense, and the spirit world requires the use of all your senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight. These senses are the doorways through which your connection with your intuitive, psychic self develops. Through your Sense-Abilities, you take your physical senses to a higher spiritual level. This process becomes a heightened sensing. Psychic Sense-Abilities come in many forms, and the development of any psychic ability takes time and energy.

The first thing to do before attempting to invest in any kind of formal training is to get a sense of your own inner Sense-Abilities. Start by taking time to increase awareness of everything around you. Try taking a sensory field trip—a time when all you do is practice awareness. Go to a zoo, the woods, your local grocery store, or farmer’s market. Take time to notice everything there. Take thirty to forty minutes to wander around. Listen to the sounds that make up the environment, the smells you encounter, and everything you rarely take notice of. Look everywhere, and feel everything. Feel textures, notice colors, sensations, temperatures, and smells. Handle things. Notice the weight and temperature of the items you touch.

What is happening all around you? Is it colder or warmer in certain parts of the store? What are you feeling on the inside of your body? What are you feeling on the outside of your body? Are you drawn to look up, down, or to the side for any reason? If so, ask yourself why. It is important to notice direction because of the way things present; looking from top to bottom, from right or left matters.

Take into account how you are feeling along the way; attempt to ascertain what reactions you are having and why. Keep track of what keeps you from focusing and what may be the cure. Focus on the smallest details; write down every experience as you go, but don’t allow your writing to distract you. Jot down just a word or two to remind you of each experience. You can focus on the writing later.

Noticing directions is important, as directional messages are correlated with time. For example, something presenting from the left can mean it is linked to the past, from the middle, a link to the present, and from the right, a future connection.

The sensory field trip will help you access which Sense-Abilities you are predisposed to practice. You will get a sense of what your innate talents are. Each of the Sense-Abilities is a complementary tool, available to psychics through the way they access information— information which can’t be learned any other way.

Wait, I Can Have Two or More Gifts? … Yes! 

It is possible you will find what particular affinity you have for one or several Sense-Abilities. You will find those Sense-Abilities form the foundation for your activities with clients. You will also find that each Sense-Ability grows in development and intensity. Be aware of what kind of information is most likely to be revealed to you and through which Sense-Ability it is most likely to come. Remember not to dismiss anything that is unfamiliar or strange. Be bold and open to what was previously closed to you.

Once you have determined which sense is the strongest for you, sit in a comfortable, quiet position. Become aware of your body and your breathing. Breathe in and out slowly for a minute or so. Then, give attention to the Sense-Ability with which you connect the strongest. Next, simultaneously be mindful of your breath and your Sense-Ability, as if they were one. If hearing is the most prominent of your senses, then focus your attention on your ears. Breathe in and out slowly, focusing for several minutes on the fact that you and your ears are one. If your Sense-Ability is Taste Reception, focus on your tongue, and exhale and inhale as you do so. Each day, when it comes to your attention, take time to repeat this exercise with your dominant Sense-Ability in mind. Concentration will make your particular Sense-Ability more firmly instilled in your mind.

Become comfortable with your hunches, gut and natural sense of knowing. Learn to trust this. If something doesn’t feel right, chances are it isn’t. What may be right for one person may be totally wrong for another. We have all experienced times when a feeling deep in the stomach compels us to take action. If we don’t listen to this prompting, we might feel as though we had missed doing something central to our benefit or the benefit of someone else. There are times when we’ve listened to such an urging, only to learn that listening made a difference and was important.

Your sixth-sense is your inner guide. Learn to trust it. It may be scary at first, and it may appear to lack logical sense, but you will soon discover it does make sense. When you obey your urges and listen to your inner-self, you’ll reinforce the power of your awareness and see it become an important part of how your life (and the lives of others) obtains a deeper understanding of certain events.

Being Proactive, Open Vigilant and Aware Matters

Pay attention and be aware. The more data and information you absorb, the more your subconscious mind will reveal. Your intuitive senses use all the information gathered from your conscious mind. They allow your subconscious mind to play a part in delivering information to aid in your decision-making. Remember: your subconscious mind communicates information directly to your conscious mind, and it does so through the power of your inner perceptions. It is important for the development of your psychic abilities to pay attention to even the smallest hints and clues you receive. The key to a fully integrated experience is to take notice.

If you have ever ignored your intuition or inner observations and later had to deal with unpleasant consequences, you know the importance of paying attention. Remember: the more you pay attention, the more you will experience. The more you experience, the clearer and more correct your messages will be.

Harness the Power of Your Rest Time

Use the power of sleep. Much can be learned and explored while your consciousness visits the unconscious realm. Put your subconscious mind to work while you sleep. Before you go to bed at night, reflect on any questions or issues for which you need solutions. Your subconscious mind will consider the problem and make an answer apparent to you in the morning. Since dreams and sleep information are often lost in the presence of the conscious mind—the light of day—have a pen and book light available for recording what you have discovered.

It’s so Trite, Yet True: Journal

Journaling will also help. When you take time to record your experiences, you give yourself the ability to evaluate and appraise the whys and wherefores of your experiences. It is an excellent way to give meaning to inner messages, insights, and unexpected knowledge. Remember: the development of your personal awareness is akin to learning a new skill. The more you practice, the better you will become.

Mediumship Development: How to Initiate Spirit Communication

Initiating Spirit Communication

Interactors are often the ones who initiate Spirit Interactions, but spirits may be the ones to initiate a contact as well. However, it is possible for you to initiate a connection on your own in spite of the fact that you may not have formal training. Here are ways to go about it.

Ask

Spirits will come when invited. They honor your space, and they don’t just drop in without permission. You may want to request they show you a symbol or sign when they are ready to come through. This will give you a clear indication that you have been heard, and the spirit is ready to respond.

Be Open

We often carry certain desires and expectations about connecting with a particular loved one. Try to let go of any preconceived notions of how such an experience should go, and most importantly, believe in the spirit’s ability to reach you. It will come in many forms—some unexpected.

RELATED: How to Receive and Understand Messages from Loved Ones on the Other Side

Be Patient

Your loved ones are on schedules of their own and are adjusting to being on the other side in much the same way you are adjusting to their passing. Think of it as if they are getting situated in a new home. Give them time to settle. It will help them make the transition easier. Simply tell your loved ones that you are perfectly willing to receive their messages when they are ready to communicate. Also, remember that wanting to communicate too eagerly may hinder communication. Be decisive, objective, and confident, so the spirit can feel comfortable enough to trust you. Be free of expectations, and the event will come to fruition in a way that is natural and free-flowing.

State your Intention

State aloud your intention to open the door through which to speak and receive messages from the spirit world. Whether you encounter interaction on a personal level or in a formal reading session, know that the universe hears you. There is a divine plan in place greater than you and your intention. Allow things to happen.

Tune In

In your daily meditation, be sure to quiet your logical, left brain thinking. Say hello and then goodbye to your left brain. Make an agreement with your left brain to reconvene at another time. Meditation and a quiet mind will assist in a quicker and clearer connection with a spirit.

Be Aware

The next important step in your journey is watching for signs, symbols, and messages during your day. Links to the spirit world may come in dreams, songs, and in synchronistic-like events, which you assume are coincidences. But, coincidence is nonexistent. Everything is intentional and has a place. Everything is meant to happen.

 Use Your Sense-Abilities

Connecting with the spirit world requires the use of all of your senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, feeling, and seeing. Therefore, the practice of any one of the Sense-Abilities takes your physical senses to a higher spiritual level. It is the practice of one or more of the Sense-Abilities that gives deeper meaning to the function of your senses.

A Technique for Sensing Spirit Energies

Another way to train yourself to be aware of the energies of a spirit is to choose two people (one living and one deceased) whom you know well. Obtain a picture of the people you have chosen. It’s important that you are familiar with the people you have chosen, because you will also be familiar with their energy. It is much easier to learn how to sense energy when you know the persons and have had a relationship with them. Next, have a notebook and pen to record what you experience.

Steps for One Type of an Energy Detection Technique

  1. Sit in a relaxed position. Place your non-dominant hand over the photo of the living person, palm facing upward in an attitude of receptivity. Now give some thought to the person. Remember to be mindful of your breath. You don’t have to look at the photo, but rather, feel the thoughts of the person as the thoughts begin to emanate. Record what memories come to mind, what feelings you sense inside and outside of your body. Can you see what that person is wearing? Do you hear the voice? What is the person saying? Is there a smell present? Or, are you aware of a color? Write everything down that presents itself to you. Information is connected to the spirit’s energy. There is no right or wrong in this process.
  2. When you are ready, go through the same process with the second photograph—the photograph of the deceased person. Again, give an easy and gentle thought to him or her, and just allow yourself to be a receptacle for receiving whatever comes. Sense the energy of the picture, and visualize the individual. Take notes of all that is presented. Take notes about what you learn about them, and most importantly, tune into his or her energy. Release any desire to fixate on any particular thing or memory. Just breathe, and gently focus on sensing the energy there.
  3. Now take time to write down the unique differences between the energy and feeling of the deceased person versus the living person. The feeling may be slight, but trust that your subconscious self has fully grasped this difference. Your conscious self may not be so attentive and may need more time and practice in order to become aware.

Summing it Up

Practicing this technique is a valuable gateway for opening yourself to spirit energies. Repeat this exercise several times. When you become more adept, try adding photographs of people you don’t know, living and deceased. Consider well-known leaders, athletes, and other influential people. The energy of such people is unique, strong, and easier to discern. In time, and with consistent practice, you will be able to clearly distinguish a concrete feel for each energy type.

How can I learn more?

You don’t have to be a psychic medium to receive messages from spirit or loved ones who have passed over to the Other Side. We all receive signs and symbols from our loved ones on a regular basis and they come in many ways. It’s purely a matter of opening the door and listening to those messages when they arrive and then saying “Thank you!” In Michelle’s courses, you will learn that you too can link with spirit.

Psychic Development: 7 Important Concepts Getting Started as a Psychic

How to Get Started in Your Psychic Development Journey

Once you’ve accepted the idea of a higher realm—that world is not just what you see—you will be free to explore everything that means. And, if you believe as Shakespeare wrote, “There are more things in heaven and earth … than are dreamt of in your philosophy,” then you should consider learning more.

The universe is full of energy, available to anyone who wants to tune in to its subtle vibrations. These vibrations, like energy, are available to those who make the effort to learn. If learning more is your intention, focus is required to activate the forces. Concentrate and evaluate even the smallest instances of psychic phenomena that happen in your life and the lives of others. Become familiar with the ethereal forces involved and how those forces integrate to exhibit hidden powers in action.

The Universe is Connected: Find Peace in This Knowing

One of the most important things to learn is the philosophy that everything is connected—plants, animals, people, and the universe. This knowledge will give you a different perspective on life and the claim that there is a connection between the living and the dead. Understanding this concept is necessary for developing your latent psychic ability. Once you adopt psychic philosophies, the next thing to do is to develop a new mindset. See happenings as more than random, as more than collected coincidences. Then, examine what your gifts are. Pay attention to how the universe sends information your way. It is quite possible that you already have inklings as to the particular psychic talents you have. Test those talents. Practice them to become proficient.

Take Time to Discern Your Talent

Each person endeavoring to engage in psychic practices has a different set of talents; identify which ones are yours. Learn the principles psychics are known to live by. Diligently apply yourself to accomplish the exercises given you by a trainer, and make use of the instructions you have gleaned from your personal research. Test the quality of your newly-acquired skills by practicing them. Look for a way to obtain continuous feedback on your progress and an objective assessment of your skills. A professional trainer will provide that and will guide your growth. The most important requirement to fully develop your latent abilities is to accept the foundational concept that there is more to the world than we suspect or see.

Your Desire and Meditation Matters Too

The next important requirement is to have a desire and willingness to develop psychically to the extent you are able to connect with the universal mind. Listen to what the spirit has to say, and honestly deliver that information. Don’t forget that meditation facilitates every connection. It also opens the channels to your Sense-Abilities and the role you will play in the lives of others. Meditation will go a long way towards speeding your psychic development.

7 Invaluable Psychic Concepts to Remember & Employ

As one develops their intuitive ability they have access to extensive recorded information held by the universal mind. Your ability to tap into these intense psychic insights is the direct result of establishing a link with the universal mind and its unlimited stores of universal energy. This energy can be tapped by anyone who chooses to make an effort to tune into its subtle vibrations.

As you access and tap into this information there are a few things to be aware of. The following are good rules of thumb to keep in mind as you begin listening to your intuition and gut sense in your daily life. Let them be guidance and employ them as they serve you.

• Your psychic journey is unique and highly individual. It is important to honor that.
• Report what you see, regardless of what it is, even if it seems ridiculous or silly. Too often, individuals new to practicing their Sense-Abilities are afraid to say what they see and fail to recognize it as feasible. In so doing, they lose meaningful information. What you receive from the universe or the spirits always has meaning.
• As you begin practicing your psychic abilities, trust images and impressions you first encounter because what you first encounter will probably be most accurate. What comes first is correct.
• You are the boss. Use your own higher knowing and intuition, and listen to your inner voice. They provide the most valuable information you can get, so trust it. Your emotions and gut feelings are part of this intuitiveness.
• Relax. Enjoy the journey. It is a process, and the process is the gift. Your psychic development should be done in fun!
• Let psychic information come to you. You need not force it or search it out. Your desire to be right or get the images you intend is ego speaking. Ego hinders your connection.
• Be rooted in ethics and integrity. All your readings, healings, intuitive abilities, and other modalities are practiced with the permission of the person you are helping.

7 Steps to Resolve and Release Emotional Turmoil

Emotional Trauma Build Up?

Are you dealing with pain from past? Sometimes we have unresolved and painful emotions that we need to face head-on. Doing so, ultimately brings us peace of mind and harmony not only with this person, issue or event but it’s also essential to maintaining mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health and well-being. Hiding, burying, denying emotional pain compounds the matter and the unresolved emotion only resurfaces, albeit in time, much stronger. This toxicity can manifest as insomnia, hostility, and anger, or fear and anxiety.

Further, it’s essential to learn how to process these feelings of anger and fear lest you internalize these highly charged emotions and falsely begin believing the issue were your fault. Guilt is one these single most destruction and worthless emotions depleting not only our spiritual life force but impacting our physical and emotional selves through feelings of exhaustion, apathy, and ultimately depression.

The good news? You can learn to quickly identify these painful emotions and in moments dissipate them from your space.

Metabolize Trauma and Pain in 7 Steps

Pain is a very normal part of life. Suffering however, is not. So, knowing how to deal with and process pain is the doorway to stopping the toxic, turmoil filled emotions. When you learn how to process, deal and cope with pain, the suffering ceases to be. It’s that simple

  1. WHERE IS THE PAIN IN MY BODY?

In a comfortable, upright and seated position, with your bare feet on the ground, soften your gaze. Pay attention to your breath. Breathe in and out, drawing your attention inward. Be with the silence and be thoughtless.

Next, recollect an incident or situation in the recent past that brought you concern, upset or even anger. Perhaps some spoke harshly to you. Were you mistreated? A disagreement or injustice with a friend or family member or coworker? Bring this memory to the forefront and identify every aspect of it.

Take some time now to hone into the details about this emotion filled incident. In your minds’ eye, picture the event unraveling. What were the specific course of events? What were you wearing? Where were you? Who was near? What were they wearing? What do you hear? As if you were a newspaper reporter, recall as vividly as possible, all the details. As you are doing this you are an observer of this event, disengaged from it, and reporting from a neutral perspective. Resist going into the emotion of the event. You are not the event, the argument, or the emotion you see. Rather, you are purely a bystander or witness. You might imagine you are watching a movie in a movie theatre. In your meditative space you have a unique vantage point of calm, disengaged observation only. You cannot be pulled into the drama and intensity of the emotions.

Now then, begin to identify exactly what you are feeling. If you could describe the incident and what you are experiencing in one word, what would that be? Think for a moment and be as clear, succinct and precise as possible as you search for the word. Are you feeling disrespected? Victimized? Dishonored? Embarrassed? Disappointed? Give the emotion or feeling you hold a name that accurately describes this poignant and painful experience. Once you have found this word, focus absolute attention on that word. Say it out loud three times.

  1. BE AN OBSERVER OF THE PAIN AND THE RELATED EXPERIENCE

Next, bring your attention inward to your physical body, releasing all thoughts or concerns about the world around you for the time being. Make an agreement with your subconscious self that you’ll back to all that later. Notice any physical sensations inside or outside your body as you have identified the emotion.

The perspective you hold in your mind and the literal physical sensation in the body, coupled, are essentially ‘emotion.’ They come hand in hand, collectively. They are one. So, this is why we use the term feeling — because we feel emotions in our physical body.

Let your attention pass through your body as you’re recalling this experience. Locate the sensations the memory brings up. For many it’s a pressure in the chest or a sensation of tightness in the gut. Some feel it as pressure in their throat. Find where it is in your body that you’re feeling and holding the emotional experience.

  1. COMMUNICATE THE EMOTION

Did you know that when you verbally express, you release the feeling? We’ll do that now. Vocalize and express that feeling. Rub your hands together for a few moments and then place them on the part of your body where the feeling is emanating from. Say it out loud: “It hurts here. I feel pain here.” There might be more than one location. If so, put your hands on each part of your body in pain. With your hands resting at each location, take a moment to inhale and exhale and then restate what you’re feeling and say out loud, “It hurts here. I feel pain here.”

Understand that your body and every cell of your body knows when you feel pain. Do your best to make peace with, embrace or even befriend these sensations. Believe it or not there is wisdom, learning and forward momentum in the experience of pain. It is leading you to broader, richer and more whole you. This experience physical discomfort through pain is telling you something is unbalanced in your life experience — physically, mentally, or spiritually.

You might also consider expressing your feelings through writing or journaling to find even more release and resolve of this emotion.

 

  1. STATE OUT LOUD, “I AM TAKING OWNERSHIP.”

Understand that your pain equates to your feelings. In essence, pain equals emotional feelings. These emotions and feelings are taking place in your body as remember the pain, even though nothing is taking place in the material world. In your recalling, your body is however reacting with real physiological process like muscle contractions, hormonal secretions, and other literal physical sensation – again just b/c of memory recall! What’s more, even when the painful incident was occurring in the material world (not by recall as we are doing today) the effect was entirely within you. So, this lets you begin to understand that you have more control than you realize. You literally have a choice in how you interpret and respond to emotional turbulence. As you begin to make this recognition and awareness, you begin to take ownership and responsibility for your feelings.

What to do next: Let go of any guilt feelings about this. Rather, recognize your ability to respond to painful situations in a new way. By taking ownership for your feelings, you can also gain the power to make the pain melt away. You’re no longer blaming anyone else for having caused the pain, so you no longer must depend on anyone else to make it go away. Resonate in this new understanding for the next few moments.

MORE ON HEALING AND THE BODY: Maintaining Balance in Your Emotional Energy with EFT

  1. RESOLVE AND RELEASE THE EMOTION NOW

Go back to the part of your body where you’re holding pain. Gaze here, hold your energy and focus here for a few moments. Breathe in and breathe out. With every exhale, image breathing out the pain. Visualize the pain as a mist, give it a color and watch it dissipate up and away. Stay in this very powerful sacred space for several moments and you focus with clear and deliberate intention to feel the pain release and leave your body. You might notice a wave of emotion release, tears, vibration or tingling in your body. You might notice a spontaneous verbal releasing…a guttural sound or audible tone of some kind. This is the pain releasing through sounds of expression. Others may need to get up and move, bend over and let their head and body hang, stretch or even dance. This is perfectly fine and is more release through physical movement. If you took time to release by written expression, it’s perfectly reasonable, and even considered a powerful kind of emotional release ritual to burn the paper and offer the ashes to the earth, wind or water.

  1. CELEBRATE WITH YOUR PEEPS

We have our support group of family and friends for a reason. When you share the outcome of this power exercise of releasing your pain you are literally activating a new pattern of behavior on the heels of the old painful pattern being released.

You might even imagine speaking to the person who was involved in that original painful incident. What would you say to that person now? Do keep in mind that he/she was really not the true cause of your pain. The true cause was your response.

Now, having transformed and released, you are liberated and set free so you can share with others without blame, manipulation, or seeking approval.

  1. REST YOUR HEAD IN PEACE OF MIND

Most importantly, take some time to celebrate the painful experience was the very thing that helped you move to a higher state of being and transform into this new level of consciousness.

Rather than responding to the situation with a pain reflex which served to only perpetuate the problem, you’ve created an opportunity for spiritual transformation. That is indeed something to celebrate! Take some ‘me time’!

Remember that you can repeat this exercise whenever you feel upset to free yourself from emotional turmoil and the underlying pain.

Expand your understanding of what it means to be psychic and how to awaken, amplify, and trust your inner voice.

S&H: How would you describe what being a psychic means?

Michelle:

A psychic is a person who recognizes the supernatural capabilities of the mind and works to expand his or her skills. They seek to develop those abilities which lay outside the realm of physical science or earthly understanding—powers and abilities that function outside the domain of natural laws. Psychic abilities involve skills to interpret, manipulate, and report on events and information that can’t be acquired within the sphere of physical science.

S&H: What is the difference between being psychic and simply being intuitive?

Michelle:

You can think of intuition as a gut sense, a hunch or knowing you have about something. Everyone is intuitive and this ability is always available to you.

In turn, psychic ability is quite similar to intuition and really isn’t different at all. It may help you to think of being psychic as adding another layer to intuition. By this, I mean by being psychic you are deciding to deepen or hone your intuition. How do you do this? First, pay attention to the nudges and hunches. Second, make a conscious effort to develop this skill. Being psychic is merely the deliberate and conscious choice to not only use but pay attention to and then develop your intuition.

S&H: What do you say to critics that don’t trust the notion of psychic abilities?

Michelle:

Skepticism is a plus, not a negative. I encourage it!

It is a tall order to expect someone to embrace the notion that there are phenomena in this world beyond our conscious minds and understanding. Psychic functioning is indeed beyond our logical minds and unexplained. Naturally, this can bring doubt, fear and the skeptic.

A bit of healthy skepticism will go a long way towards ensuring psychic functioning and any related modality are accountable, responsible and it even improves accuracy in a development setting.

Michelle has also co-authored two additional books! All three books are available at Amazon. Click here to learn more! https://amzn.to/2vaebv3

S&H: What are the signs or characteristics of someone who would make a great candidate for psychic training?

Michelle:

Anyone can learn to be psychic! Here are just a few characteristics that those choosing to enhance their psychic ability may express:

• pay particular attention to their inner voices and listen to its urgings;
• pay attention to their bodies and are not afraid to be mystical;
• make time for solitude and take advantage of opportunities to contemplate the mysteries of existence;
• cherish creativity and put time into feeding that creativity;
• observe everything around them and attempt to make sense of what they see. They are drawn to finding the truth in others and in the world; and
• pay attention to their dreams, knowing that truth can be found in the spirit world as well as the physical world.

S&H: What is the first, essential step to take in honing what you call psychic “sense-abilities”?

Michelle:

Connecting with your higher self, your sixth sense, and the spirit world requires the use of all your senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight. These senses are the doorways through which your connection with your intuitive, psychic self develops.

The first thing to do is to get a sense of your own inner Sense-Abilities.

Start by taking time to increase sensory awareness of everything around you. Try taking a sensory field trip—a time when all you do is practice awareness. Go to a sensory rich location like a zoo, your local grocery store, or farmer’s market. Take time to notice everything there. As you wander, listen to the sounds that make up the environment, the smells you encounter, and everything you rarely take notice of. Look everywhere, and feel everything. Feel textures, notice colors, sensations, temperatures, and smells. Handle things. Notice the weight and temperature of the items you touch.

This simple exercise tells your subconscious self to begin awakening.

Learn more about a session with Michelle

S&H: How do you separate yourself and your emotions with those you’re engaged in?

Michelle:

As a practicing spiritual counselor or guide, you are bound to come face to face with highly-charged experiences, despite protective precautions. More often than not, the reason will be an inability to keep your attention focused outside of yourself. If you don’t stay focused, you will become entrenched in whatever situation is emotionally overactive at the moment. The solution to this problem is to consistently be in the center of your head, to call back your life force, and to regain your peace of mind—your clarity and balance.

There is a spiritual space in the center of your head, from which you will be able to filter out worldly circumstances and focus on controlling the intensity of your experiences. The center of your head is a place of balance and perspective. It is a place for you and only you. It is comparable to being in a spiritual cocoon. Think of this place as a personal inner space, offering you a bird’s-eye view of the reality of a situation. It can be place of peace, equanimity, and clarity. Maintaining an existence at the center of your head should be an ongoing process. It’s not something done once. Your ability to remain centered is important to your stability and growth.

Steps to Stay in the Center of Your Head

1. Focus your awareness on the center of your head.
2. Imagine a miniature version of yourself located at the midpoint, the point where two crossed lines, traveling through the center, meet.
3. Take time to create a mental picture of this sacred space exactly as you choose. It is your space to design and arrange any way you wish.
4. Imagine a trap door. If persons or issues invade your space, tell them to leave. Then, imagine their immediate evictions.

Remember: the center of your head is your sacred place. You control it, and you are responsible for keeping it free of negativity.

S&H: Can you explain “distant sensing” and do you think it’s something anyone can learn?

Michelle:

Yes! Anyone can learn to be a Distant Sensor. In fact, quite often beginners have fantastic success with successful development of this ability. The reason is because they come as a blank slate and have no preconceived notions or expectations about the ability.

Distant Sensing (also called Controlled Remote Viewing or (CRV) is an advanced psychic skill enabling a practitioner to mentally see objects hundreds or even thousands of miles away. It is an activity whereby the practitioner tunes in to an object, location, or event inaccessible by normal means—regardless of time, distance, or location.

Distant Sensing is implemented when an individual requests a practitioner (a Distant Sensor) to look into a past event or request a visit to a location as it existed in the past. It is also used when someone wants to view or peek at something locked or hidden away. Once the Distant Sensor locates the object or event and views it, the Distant
Sensor will report the revealed information to the individual. The Distant Sensor does this by using a structured process, incorporating written information, verbal statements, or illustrated sketches.

Distant Sensors are often asked to see places or objects situated in unreachable locations, which may be on the other side of the globe. They are also asked to describe events in the past, such as the outcome of Amelia Earhart’s last flight, or a look inside a sealed container or locked room.

The goal of Distant-Sensing efforts is to receive signals and messages from the subconscious mind, with the help of our senses, and then interpret and decode that data to the Sensor’s conscious mind. The signals are said to travel through the Sensor’s subconscious mind and then into the sensor’s consciousness, where it is deciphered into a form
(verbally or materially) that can be reported clearly to others. Psychics with this ability are expected to actually view or see things without previous information or assistance. This is commonly referred to as being blind to the target.

Power Tip from Michelle: The most successful and accurate psychics, mediums, distant sensors or the like have one thing in common: They have perfected the skill of ‘quieting their mind’ while engaged in their spiritual or psychic work. How do you achieve this? Meditate every day. It’s that essential and that simple.

The Precognitive Dream Telling the Future: How Do I Know I’m Having One?

What is a Precognitive Dream?

By and large, when we dream, we are in a passive experience wherein we project our thoughts, ideas and emotions into a movie screen of sorts. At some juncture, amidst this often abstract and creative experience there comes an occasional dream that seems “precognitive” in nature. This becomes apparent to the dreamer of course when that dream actualizes. It is here when the dream is met with a powerful awareness that what was once dreamed of, is now actual.

In a precognitive dream you are receiving information, facts and details about an event that comes true in the future. It’s very similar to sensations associated with Déjà Vu. So, if you’ve had this kind of experience then you know what a precognitive dream can feel like.

These powerful dreams are not incubated, they simply happen.

Precognition is Nothing New to the World

Did You Know?

When Sir Winston Churchill traveled in his car he always sat on his favorite side. He had a gut feeling one day and changed sides. Later that day, as he was in his car, a bomb exploded. The car was tossed up and onto two of its side wheels but because of where he was sitting, Churchill’s weight balanced the upheaval and the car didn’t overturn.

Abraham Lincoln had a dream about a funeral at the White House. Two weeks before he was assassinated in 1865, he told his wife that in the dream, he asked someone who was in the casket. They told him, and he heard in his dream, “the president of the United States”.

The well known story of Frankenstein, often cited as the world’s first science fiction novel, was inspired by author Mary Shelley’s vivid nightmare.

The father of quantum mechanics, Niels Bohr, often spoke of the inspirational dream that led to his discovery of the structure of the atom.

Elias Howe invented the sewing machine based on a famous dream that helped him understand the mechanical penetration of the needle. He was not the first person to create the idea of a sewing machine, however Howe made notable refinements to the design and was awarded the first US patent for a sewing machine using a lock-stitch design.

As we all know, Albert Einstein is famous for his genius insights into the nature of the universe. As it turns out, Einstein reached extraordinary scientific achievement – discovering the principle of relativity – after having a vivid dream.

Our world is literally inundated with impressive examples of precognitive dreams and how they have impacted human evolution and existence!

Types of Precognitive Dreams

Symbolic Precognitive Dream

In this dream, symbolism presents the precognitive information but this is not realized until the actual event in waking life. This is a difficult dream to recognize. However symbols in the dream match (but also can exaggerate) the future event when it actualizes.

Literal Precognitive Dream

This is a first-person perspective precognitive dream and is often in great, literal detail. Here, you sense, think and feel aspects of the dream can actualize in the future. You might feel a sense of Déjà Vu with this dream.

3rd Person Precognitive Dream

This is you as an observer, from a third-person perspective. This precognitive dream can present in symbolic and literal form. The information being observed in the dream however does not mean it will ultimately occur from a first-person point of view.

Lucid Precognitive Dream

This is a dream while awake. Meaning, the person is awake and realizes that they are dreaming. This is a common place for precognitive dreams to emerge. An even more pronounced sense of of déjà vu can present in this dream. Also, there are two types of lucid dreams: an active lucid precognitive dream wherein the dreamer actively tries to engage the precognitive dream and an ambient lucid dream where in the dreamer passively observes the dream remaining within the usual dream flow.

How to Identify the Precognitive Dream

Visual Symbols

Precognitive dreams present a visual symbol letting you know time is of the essence. For example, preceding a precognitive dream you see a clock either facing forward or moving in a forward direction or hands of the clock facing forward. This lets you know to pay attention as this is to present again ahead, but in real life. The clock face becomes a symbol of a probable precognitive dream. This is just an example. You might also see a calendar, an hour glass, an image of the moon passing. Be mindful that you may receive a symbol unique to you that displays the message that time matters. Meaning: Let’s say you’re a musician, so your symbol showing time is of the essence may be a metronome, or a conductor of an orchestra.

Also keep in mind that holidays like Thanksgivings, Christmas, Easter, July 4th, a person’s birthday, Christmas trees, fall colors, sports like baseball, hockey, etc. By becoming alert to very specific time oriented symbols you can determine an approximate period for a possible future event’s manifestation.

Finally, be mindful of meeting people in your dreams state who you have never met yet later in waking life when you did meet these people they were exactly as you saw them in your dream, even down to the same clothing as in the dream.

Sounds and Voices

Pay particular attention the last dream right as you wake. Often, you will wake hearing a song or a few words and it’s not attached to an image or symbol. If this happens, pay attention! There is a reason you’re waking with this echoing in your mind. This is your subconscious requesting you listen to the dream and a clue of a connection to your daily life and/or what’s ahead. Be sure to listen and receive the words exactly as you hear them. Don’t make assumptions and take the message word for word.

Emotional Cues

If you feel a strong emotional urgency to pay attention to the dream then this dream may also be a suggestion that time is of the essence and the dream will come again in life. An example may be a dream of a birthday cake and someone birthday that is feel with especially intense emotion.

You can identify this emotion filled dream as it often comes amidst many placid dreams. So the emotional intensity of the dream is easily noticed and may even then repeat.

Repetition Matters

Dream events and dream symbols that repeat over and over again and in a short period of time often suggest the likely approach of a waking event. If the dream occurs two or three nights in a row and has intense emotion, do take note!

Last Dream

The last dream before waking is an important one. This is in part because it’s the dream we remember. This is your subconscious being very intentional and giving you clear indication that information in this dream is useful. This doesn’t mean that other dreams earlier in your sleep or as you fall into sleep are not precognitive so do still look to these earlier dreams for insight.

It’s like a Peloton

Precognitive dreams often come in clusters, packs or herds. So, as you notice one precognitive dream present, be on the lookout for more to follow!

Specializing in Your Expertise

We all have natural talents that are inherent to us. You may notice that your precognitive dreams follow areas of your expertise. Over time of journaling your dreams of this nature you may have numerous precognitive dreams about finances if you’re seasoned in the financial investment industry. A therapist or counselor who specializes in family events or relationships may receive precognitive events of this nature. Some people tune into purely positive precognitions and others only find negative precognitions. Over time you may even notice that an area of specialization actually expands or changes as you grow and your interest changes.

We Dream of What Interests Us

Like the emotion filled precognitive dream, the curiosity filled dream, too, gets our attention. You may notice these unique dreams are all about people or things that you want to know more about or are very intrigued by.

Look for the Oddities

Did you have a dream of an odd object? Make note of that odd thing about a place or event as the ‘oddity’ tells you it is ahead. This oddity symbol or phenomenon suggests that our dreaming perception may recall more easily or pay attention to the odd or unusual aspect of a future place or event.

How Do I Develop the Ability to Have Precognition Dreams?

1. Keep a dream journal.

– In your journal record and date each dream in detail as possible.
– Sketching and drawing counts. So, if words, emotions, images or sounds don’t manifest draw an expression of your dream as best you can.
– Come back to your dream later and study them. Listen to their wisdom on a literal and symbolic level.
– You’ll begin to analyze patterns of events and meaning of certain symbols in your dreams.

2. Start with Lucid dreaming.

– In this space you begin to open the door to a new kind of consciousness that encompassed things like out of body experiences and astral travel.

3. Be Open and Receptive.

– Your subconscious will begin to send you signs and symbols and messages, if you will listen. So, be especially tuned in and open to heightened messages.
– They may come to you in the form of symbols, thoughts, feelings, or physical sensations.

4. Practice Remaining Calm.

– When you are in equanimity, ease and peace messages of insight can reach you. You are also more in tune to emotional energies of people, events and circumstances in your environment. Meditate, Ground and Run Energy often to maintain healthy energy balance.

5. Live in the Moment.

– Embracing the present moment and thrive in the now. This will support you to becoming more receptive to the wealth of information your psychic mind wants to provide you. This happens very easily when you are present and grounded in the now.

6. Put the Puzzle Pieces Together.

– Precognition may manifest itself to you in what may seem like jumbled pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle. Your job is to be patient and put it all together, over time.

Types of Spirit Guides & 3 Steps to Connect With Them

What Exactly Are Spirit Guides?

Spirit guides are entities designed to help and advise you on this physical plain of existence. Your guides—everyone has more than one—were given to you before you were made flesh. They are non-corporeal beings, assigned by the universal mind to travel alongside you while you exist on this earth. They are responsible for helping you navigate your way through life, expand your realization of your higher self, and make your journey easier. Spirit guides advise, nudge, comfort, and of course, guide. Their purpose is not to do things for you or make your decisions; they are there just to guide and inform. They are kindly entities, specifically concerned with your good—nothing more.

There are spirits of the departed, like loved ones who have passed on, engaged in helping and guiding, but they are not spirit guides. Spirit guides are different and should not to be confused with guardian angels or angels of any kind. The best explanation for spirit guides is to say they are entities, composed of energy, which do not have substance and which are often directed to aid your higher self. Spirit guides are uniquely able to help where intuition is not. This is because spirit guides know all that has been and is now going on in your life. They are entities that may or may not work in concert with other guides on your behalf.

Unique Characteristics of Our Spirit Guides

They may appear to have male or female characteristics, but they are neither male nor female. Those characteristics are there to aid your human understanding and to give you something with which you can easily identify. Spirit guides also communicate in a unique way. They come across through thoughts—strong thoughts. They send messages in the same way messages are sent to Spirit Interactors (mediums). Know that their connection with humans is always gentle. You should think about it as receiving a message unlike intuition or mental insight. It is stronger and more directed than that.

The best way to think of spirit guide connections is to think of them as concerned messages with direction. Spirit guide relationships are also unique. They are relationships you should cultivate as any other meaningful and important relationship requiring nurturing and caring. A spirit guide relationship needs the same level of commitment and time any significant relationship requires. The more time and attention you give to cultivating open lines of communication with your guide, the stronger your relationship will become.

Psychic Development: The 5 Types of Spirit Guides

Best Friend Guide

Your best friend guide will be your main guide. It will be the one with whom you will spend most of your time and have most of your interaction. This guide is similar to a friend. It behaves like a companion, bringing comfort, laughter, and joy. It is around to remind you to handle situations with kindness and diplomacy. It is there to remind you to take a breath when things go wrong and to be patient with things difficult to change. This guide advises when choices involve your happiness. It is believed that this guide has lived a human life; because of this, it understands all you are experiencing and what the outcomes of decisions may be.

If you need a little boost to balance your day or to reignite your clarity of thought, your best friend guide is the one to help. If you find yourself a bit down about, expect your best friend guide to appear and prompt you to rethink your situation. It will remind you to laugh. Remember: your best friend guide is always present.

Guardian Guide

The job of your guardian guide is to keep you aware, forewarned, and safe. This guide often comes with messages of caution and warning. Think of the guardian guide as your chief protector. If you have a feeling cautioning you, it is probably your guardian guide, instructing you to be careful.

Wisdom or Scholar Guide

The wisdom or scholar guide is the teacher. If it were a being living on earth, it might take on the form of a wise old man with profound insights. It might be an individual with incomparable wisdom, whom you would find easy to trust. If you have questions about learning, education, or philosophy, this is the guide who will assist you. It is the spiritual guru, versed in education and learning.

Body-Balance Guide

We have only one physical body, and it is sacred. The body-balance guide is concerned with your health and wellness—your diet, exercise, and medical care. If you hear a voice advising, “That is not a good choice for your body,” listen. It is your body- balance guide giving you a nudge.

Short Term Guides

It is possible to ask the universe for short-term guides to help you. These are guides with a particular skill or information. If you are writing a book, then you may want to call on a guide skilled in that area. If you are preparing for a test, you may need a guide with expertise in that particular field of study. All kinds of spirit guides, as helpful as they are, can’t and won’t make decisions for you. They’re available only to assist you. There is a conundrum about the effectiveness of guides. Because we have a deep, intuitive knowledge about what is right for us and what is right to do, we don’t always need a voice outside of ourselves—spirits, spirit guides, or anyone else—telling us what to do. But because human beings tend not to obey those things they know to be right, other entities often need to intervene to reinforce the necessity for doing what is right. Insecurity over a decision may not be valid. Dig deep within, and the choice will always be clear. Just remember to make choices that meld with your own goals and needs—not the goals and needs of others. The good news is that if you think you need the advice of a guide, you can have one whenever you choose.

Here’s How to Connect With Your Spirit Guides

  • Set your intention to connect with your spirit guide.
  • Sit in a relaxed, meditative state in a comfortable location. Meditation is where the profound, but remarkably gentle joining of you and your spirit guide will happen.
  • Say a prayer to invite your guide to join you. You might say, “Spirit guide, thank you for coming. I intend accurate, open, clear lines of communication with you. I invite you into my
    space now.”
  • Listen and trust.
  • Know that messages are subtle. Don’t look for them. Let them float in naturally.
  • Use your Sense-Abilities.
  • Be consistent. Don’t give up if messages from your guides don’t present right away. This is a magnificently high vibrational relationship process. You and your spirit guides are adjusting to one another. It requires raising your vibrational frequency and lowering theirs. You will meet somewhere in the middle. It may require a few meditations before you have a clear awareness of
    your guides.

Yes, Naming Your Spirit Guide is a Good Thing!

People often ask, “How do I find my guide, and what is his or her name?” Connecting with spirit guides is done in several ways. One is meditation. Meditation does not require any special training or insight. It is a simple process. Quiet your mind. When you feel you are substantially calm, ask your spirit guide to tell you his or her name. After you have asked, listen. Trust the first name that comes to your mind. That is the name of your guide. While some believe it is important to know the name of their spirit guides, others believe it has no relevance. Knowing your guide’s name is not essential. The feelings and relationships you develop with your guide and the messages you receive are essential. Names are nothing more than a human system for identifying and connecting with people and things.

To identify whether or not a spirit is a guide, use the three times rule. If you receive the same message three times, it is a clue you are receiving guidance from a spirit guide. Pay attention to the repeated nudges and messages you receive, as your guides will send messages through those portals as well. You may feel it important to do something, and when the nudge occurs strongly three times, your guide is attempting to corral you in a certain direction. The reasons may be unclear to you at first, but your guide will make them obvious later. Use your Sense-Abilities
to tune into your guide for support when you need it.

How to Distinguish Between the Highly Sensitive Person, Empath and Clairsentient?

What’s the Difference? The Highly Sensitive Person, Empath and Clairsentient

It’s easier than you think!

Think of them in layers and one being slightly more enhanced than the next yet equally special in their own way.

They are indeed similar, and you may be exclusively more one than the other. You may also have a bit of them all!

Remember that regardless of your lean or ability, these are true gifts! Honor them, care for them and use them for the highest of good, love and light. Set the intention to use your gifts to guide, support and help those in need, spreading your own light throughout the world.

Let’s get started!

Highly Sensitive Person

“What exactly is a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)?” you ask. This term began to receive notoriety by the well-known psychologist, Dr. Elain Aron who discovered through research and studies that as much as 20 percent of the population are bestowed with a unique and heightened sensitivity to the world around them. These people get things quick, are a step ahead of the game and easily notice more than the average person. They are very in tune to the external stimuli around them.

How to Know If You’re an HSP

Highly sensitive people are especially sensitive to smell, taste, sound and feelings or emotions. In addition, certain foods and flavors and things like caffeine or even the smallest doses of medicine affect them in drastic ways. They also have a few other unique characteristics:

  • Bright lights, especially fluorescent lights, overwhelm you. You might even hear the humming of the lights and become agitated by it.
  • Must have quite time having been in sensory rich, loud, busy settings.
  • Especially sensitive to works of art and it may even bring you to tears or emotion of some kind.
  • Very uneasy when you have little time to complete a long list of to-dos.
  • Odoriferous settings leave you overwhelmed and in need of fresh air.

In sum, the HSP is very emotionally in tune to their environment and in many cases they don’t know why. They subconsciously receive the often very subtle clues in body language, tone of voice, and/or facial expressions of those they are interacting with at any given time.

What is an Empath

In turn, the empath can feel the emotions of all those around them including animals. They are highly sensitive to the energy field of human or animals, also called the aura. The difference here, as we add on a layer, is that the empath will absorb the emotional energy of those around them taking the emotions on as if they were their own. Yes, they literally experience the exact same emotional effects in their own bodies of those near.

RELATED: How to Use Your Empathic Ability

A Classic Empath vs. HSP Experience

Scenario: A heated conversation occurs in a room or setting of some kind between two people.

The HSP, unaware of the tense conversation, knocks and enters the room and the couple does a splendid job of acting as though nothing is happening. The HSP, upon entering the room would sense the tone of the room immediately because they can perceive the ever so subtle cues of body language, voice intonation and facial mannerism regardless that these cues may be hidden quite well.

However, the empath could enter the same room hours after the arguing two left the room and still feel and even absorb the emotional residual energy from the argument without any obvious physical evidence that it took place.

There is no hard and fast rule, but you might think of it like this: Most empaths are HSP but not all HSP are empaths.

A Few Empathic Traits

  • Must turn off the television when you see violence or tragedy.
  • Literally feel the emotion of others when you are near them.
  • Often root for the losing team or the underdog in a situation.
  • Empaths are highly creative and have extremely rich imaginations, hence vivid dreams.
  • They know when someone is being dishonest.
  • Many empaths are natural healers involved in healing, medicinal or therapeutic arts.

MORE PSYCHIC DEVELOPMENT: Psychic Medium Gives 5 Powerful Coping Tips for Empaths

We Arrive at the Clairsentient

Now then, adding on yet another layer, we explore the Clairsentient. Clairsentients are quite often highly sensitive people as well as empaths.

Clairsentients, just like empaths can sense the emotional energy around them and take it on as their own.  The clear feeling ability of the clairsentient expands a bit further allowing them to make absolute sense of the information regarding that energy around them. Here’s what I mean by that: Clairsentients have a sixth sense or heightened sensory ability that takes them beyond mere physical or emotional. They add in a component now of knowing much like the clairvoyant receives knowing through visions or images. So, the Clairsentient may have a physical sensation response to a person around them such as a tingling in their hands and know with absolute certainty this person needs physical healing. They may feel a throbbing in their throat (throat chakra) and receiving a direct knowing of this feeling, such as this person is sick with a cough, healed from cancer or more symbolically is needing to express more in life.

Along with their heightened sensory awareness and ability to absorb the emotional energy of those around them, clairsentients also gain great knowing (symbolic, factual or physical) from extrasensory perception that they can then use to guide someone.

Using our scenario above regarding the two people in the room involved in the heated argument, the Clairsentient would enter the room hours later and not only tune into the energy of the room but they would also be able to perceive clear and specific knowing regarding details about the two in the argument such as a sense about why they were arguing about. They may also feel in their body the sensations one or the other was feeling during the tense interaction – such as heart racing, sweaty palms or grief. They may also get a sense through feelings of what’s impending such as a break up or divorce.

Clairsentient Abilities & Traits

  • You give more attention to feelings of experiences in their daily life.
  • Your language includes words like feel, touch and sense vs. hear, see or smell. For example, you say, “As I consider this project, I feel …” as opposed to “As I consider this project, I’m hearing you say or I’m envisioning …”
  • A classic clairsentient response is the chills in your body. When this happens, pay attention to what’s happening around you and become aware of higher consciousness signs, symbols and messages presenting for you in the moments surrounding this.
  • You’ve experienced a sensation of a slight touch somewhere on your body – perhaps your shoulder or head to find no one there.
  • Your feel the emotions of others, this emotion often manifests physically in your body (inside your body or outside your body) and you have a sense of knowing, through a heightened sensory ability, what this is related to and/or how you can help.

Exploring Past Lives & Akashic Records

Are Past Lives Real?

“Have I lived a past life?” you ask. Let’s explore that …

According to data released by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, a quarter of Americans now believe in reincarnation. A billion Hindus and a half-billion Buddhists — not to mention the ancient Greeks, certain Jews and a few Christians — have believed in reincarnation for thousands of years. For them, you are born, you live, and then you die, and, since no one has lived a perfect life, your soul is born again.  You are born again—not in a metaphorical sense or in some other location or sphere, but right here on earth. The brilliance of reincarnation is the ability of seeing history as your history. It gives you a different sense of what it means to be human.

RELATED: Psychic Medium Teaches You All About Animal Totems & How to Initiate Connection

How Can I Discern I’ve Lived a Past Life? 

How do you know if you’ve ever lived a past life? Everyone has. There are clues you can look to that indicate the reality of a past life. It isn’t proof, but it is a hint.

  • Dr. Brian Weiss, a specialist on past life regression, says the most common sign you’ll encounter is the feeling of déjà vu—the sensation that you’ve met a person before or been in a particular location you know for sure you have had no connection with in this life.
  • Another indication is the feeling that a dream you’ve had is real—so real that you feel as though you were actually there. Still another hint is excelling in a talent or ability you’ve never studied or practiced. Imagine having something like a woodworking skill and not really know why.
  • A soul mate or soul family is another signal that you’ve lived a past life. A soul mate, soul companion or soul family is the result of a relationship that was forged in some other life. It is very common to travel through various lives with the same group of souls. We learn our spiritual lessons and accumulate or resolve our karma with those soul-groups.
  • Affinity for a place, time or culture: You have a deep love and unexplainable attraction for certain cultures, time periods or places. This is your soul remembering and having experienced this in another life.
  • Memories and experiences from past lives can pass to subsequent life times and leave residual energy. Hence, we can experience the past life traumas in our present lifetimes in the form of fears and phobias. Fear of water or drowning, the fear of a certain animal, places, or even tangible objects, colors or smells.

Relationships may change from life to life, but the souls we encounter are the same. If you want to explore whether this is true for you, take the time to dive deeply into any event you know did not happen to you in this life. Exploring what those incidents might mean will give you insights into your now and your past.

Past Lives Now Lead Us to the Akashic Records

This brings us to the Akashic Records, where all this, ever was, and ever will be is stored – including past lives.

Psychics believe there is a place where every human word and deed throughout all time has been recorded. Those records—a collection of every human event, thought, word, emotion and intent that have occurred in the past, present, or future—is called the Akashic records. This suppository of information of human consciousness is encoded in a non-physical existence known as the etheric plane.

This library of all-existence holds the record of your soul’s journey from the first time you appeared in the source, until you eventually return home. No matter whether you are a new soul or an ancient one, the Akashic energy is the holographic repository of all your thoughts, feelings, actions and deeds, from each lifetime you have ever lived.

Just knowing whom you were in the past, who you are today, and who you are meant to be in the future, influences the life you lead now. It influences your relationships, your belief systems, and the future realities you draw toward yourself.

Who Can Access the Akashic Records?

Everyone can access the information from the Akashic Records at any time and from anywhere. The flashes of intuition and knowing-hunches that occur every day are glimpses into the wisdom contained in the Akashic Records.  Every being in the Universe contributes to, and can access, the Akashic Records.  Because we are all created by and connected to its energy, our divine birthright includes having access to the wisdom and knowledge contained therein.

It is possible to learn about your relationships, your health, your soul path, even your past lives and every other conceivable topic. The answers you receive during an Akashic reading offers help and hope as well as empowerment by knowing the truth of your situation and the possibilities unfolding in your life.

How Can I Access the Akashic Records?

How do you gain access to this information? It’s simple. You ask. You relax and have an open mind. You take on the stance that it is possible. It is all about surrounding yourself with the most loving and healing energy you can muster.

It is important to feel completely safe in a zone of benign emotions and achieve a meditative state. If you feel rushed or unsure about your results, it will be difficult to retrieve the information you seek. Take your time to concentrate on what you need and proceed with confidence. Here are some formal steps to help you even further:

  1. Discern what you desire to know. Be clear and concise. For example, “It is my intention to travel to and access the Akashic Records.
  2. Quiet your mind, be in a meditative space. Make an agreement with your sub conscious self that you will come back to all the to-dos of the day later. Focus on your intention of accessing the Akashic Records.
  3. If you are working with guides as for their assistance now.
  4. State your specific question out loud. Be clear, concise and specific with your question. All questions are okay. You may say, “I’d like to know what is right for me to know about my most recent past life.” Be patient as the answer comes.
  5. Use all of your senses: sight, sound, taste, touch, smell and feeling. Who is it connecting with you? Ask this spiritual being to come forward. Ask their name. Then, listen as they respond to your question. Your answer may come in a symbol, a sound or song, an image, a memory or even a feeling. Again, pay very close attention to all your senses, even your physical body.
  6. As you are ready to be complete, thank the spiritual presence for sharing their message. Now, take the time to journal this experience. Did you receive your answer? Did you access the Akashic Records? What did it look like or feel like? Did you see structures? It may be that you saw temples or domes. Perhaps you were led to library or scrolls?

Everyone will have a unique experience. You may come upon spirit guides and or angelic like forms. One this if for sure, this experience is akin to channeling and you may feel like you’re in a dream. Did you feel like you were in a movie? This is possible as you open to the sacred documents of all that is, ever was or ever will be. Whatever your experience, it is sacred and real. You can now access this anytime you desire.

All About Runes & Receiving the Guidance You Desire!

Runes Have Been Around a Long Time

Today, it’s all about Runes: what they are and knowing how they can help answer many of life’s questions.

While the word ‘rune’ means mystery, whisper or secret, it is no secret why the ancients relied on it to look into the future and explain the events of the present. Runes are an oracle-reading system or form of divination used to gain insights and advice.

Runes, which are most commonly made of stone or wood, display a symbol from each of the runic alphabet on them. The oldest symbols being from the Germanic runic alphabet.

The Variety is Plentiful!

There are different kinds of Rune stones depending on which alphabet you choose to follow; Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, Cirth, Elder Futhark, Gothic Runes, Hungarian Runes, Turkic, Younger Futhork.  It is the Elder Futhark Rune alphabet emerging in popularity; it is also known as the alphabet with the “blank”.

Four Simple Steps to Use Runes

The Runes are traditionally placed in a spread or pattern of several tiles for reading. Each symbol displayed on the Rune has a particular meaning and is interpreted in conjunction with how they are spread out. There are 24 or 33 symbols on each stone—depending on the alphabet you are using. And, each symbol has a particular meaning and interpretation.

There are several methods for getting the answers you seek.

  1. Close your eyes, concentrate on your question and choose a rune from its pouch. Your choice will be your answer.
  2. Concentrate on the question at hand and then gently toss all the runes from the bag onto a soft surface. Search the runes that stand out and read your answer.
  3. Lay the runes out in grid and let your hand pass over them slowly while concentrating on what answer you need. Use your left hand if you are right-handed and your right hand if you are left-handed. You will sense the rune that holds the answer to your question.
  4. Place your mind in a neutral state. Ban worry and concerns from your thinking. Now draw three runes from the bag and line them up. The first rune will be the answer to a past situation, the second one to a present situation, and the last one the answer to a future situation. This type of reading comes from a Norse mythology of three sisters who were able to decide mankind’s fate.

Receiving Answers Using Shapes & Runes

There are also readings done with the runes in a particular shape.

The diamond-shaped reading is good for gaining insights regarding immediate outcomes.

A cross-shaped spread for a life-path reading, and a circle reading to learn about the romantic energy between two people. Finally, there is the Well of Wyrd that comes directly from Norse mythology. It is said the tree of life receives its water from this well and that Odin discovered the Runes there. This reading is complex and requires study. It gives insight into multiple questions and probable fates.
