A few, not- too- deep reflections and some hopefully useful personal shares. Enjoy!
After four years of hard work and study to become a certified teacher of the Anastasi System of Psychic Development, Pete finally completed the requirements to earn a teaching certificate. (Pete is not yet licensed to teach, however) He hopes to be able to offer classes (online and in person) soon. It may be best to wait until he retires from his full-time day job first though, in order to dedicate his time to his future students and their interests in developing their own psychic abilities using this proven and highly effective method. Congratulations Pete on a job well done! Please feel welcome to reach out to Pete for recommendations for other availabe highly qualified teachers. Pete’s collegues and fellow graduates, Mary and Karen, are offering classes in September 2022. More information about studying PD levels 1 though 6 with them is available here: https://thepsychicmary.wixsite.com/mysite/services or https://karensclarity.com/
I recently watched “A Ghost Story”. Written and directed by David Lowery, this 2017 film held my attention to the very end. The end of the movie, is where I begin. Or continue.
I was very curious about the backstory –so I researched the film online and found an interview with David Lowery in which he explains the process and how the script came to be. He talks about how he gathered information and he, himself researched supernatural aspects that appear throughout. David also mentions, (almost in passing) that his creative process while writing contains some of his own personal experiences.
The reason I’m so intrigued by the whole background is simple due the accurate nature and treatment of the subject matter. I asked myself “How could someone produce such a creative, well-balanced, elegant film about a ghost and not have had some underlying understanding and knowledge of the workings of the spirit world and the afterlife?”
How indeed?” Was the director\writer a medium? Or did David perhaps have access to reliable resources that contributed to the script? No. To me, it felt and continues to feel genuinely convincing. Having heard the interview it makes sense that he draws upon his own past experience. Very personal indeed.
The portrayal of the ghost’s behavior makes its own case. To the trained eye, everything rings technically true and while it feels a bit inappropriate to render an opinion, so many of the elements in the film show exactly what one who is undertaking a scientific review or technical analysis of a movie about ghost behavior would include. In specific detail. That’s the icing on the cake.
Everyone has and will forever have their own individual and unique ideas and concepts of ghosts. Who they are – what they do and all the rest. In my experience, that’s very normal.
But for someone looking for a clear, dependable albeit reputable expression of the ghosts activity I recommend a slow, careful and honest review of the film.
For me it’s all there. Fascinating, exciting, and insightful are the words that come to mind.
“Oh…I have a quick question.”
“You know,…. I saw this psychic on TV and ….”
“My friend told me something about his reading …”
How often I encounter people in my day to day activities that say these familiar things.
I’ve become accustomed to folks bringing up some aspect of psychic activity or spirit communication during a brief conversation or just in passing. It’s quite natural for people to contribute what they know about some topic in mixed company – among friends, co-workers or family. Being close in proximity by to a psychic medium often triggers some internal mental thought or emotion that jump starts a brief discussion about that person’s life or personal experience or history. The clearest indicator is when a person brings up a deceased family member or loved one. This often happens – right out of the blue!
These stories, as we could call them, are tied to their unique experiences and often form their own personal perspectives about the psychic and spirit communication topics. I have found that sometimes these topics cause conflicts with one’s personal religious beliefs or their familiar and adopted spiritual practices. The point here is that everyone has a different outlook and attitude towards psychic and spirit communication and naturally this effects their individual demeanor on how open and welcoming they remain to discussing it.
It also depends upon how experienced, educated and trained the professional psychic medium is. We must always remember we can lose people if we use too many technical terms or psychic babble which causes confusion and misunderstanding. A responsible psychic medium will try to meet the client on their own terms and strive to communicate effectively, clearly and with understanding and compassion.
It takes a special care and good listening skills to render an explanation, or accurate description or just some encouragement or positive reinforcement. All this is really necessary – which leads to the reason for this blog.
The biggest benefit to a psychic consultation can be best described in one word: sharing.
The opportunity to share information in a private, quiet, uninterrupted environment – either online or over the telephone creates a special space where thoughts and feelings are exchanged in a way that allows the psychic medium to better understand the client’s needs and address any questions or concerns that may arise in the conversation.
Now this may seem very much just common sense but by carving out a dedicated time to speak privately with a psychic medium – folks simply communicate better. Contrast this setting with the one mentioned earlier where the person; maybe your friend or neighbor just mentions something psychic-related in passing, in a casual way and the opportunity for the psychic medium to respond appropriately is lost. There isn’t enough time or privacy or too many distractions occur and other involvements deprive the person of getting a clear understanding or substantial information about the psychic topic that they brought up.
Why does this matter?
Well, bad information can be more harmful than no information. Trying to discuss psychic topics and spirit commination in the workplace, or the bank, the grocery store or in the gym is really not optimal. But believe me – this happens. And people very often want this on-the-fly, ready-made, quick and easy answer.
So rather than try to compete with all the surroundings in a public space the p/m should offer the perspective client the opportunity to connect with them and discuss their psychic interests further. I always carry a business card which has all my contact information and I warmly encourage folks to reach out if they have any questions about what I do or how it all works etc..I try to encourage this rather than continue discussing the psychic or spirit communication topic. And it really works.
It’s ok to maintain the boundaries. For example I refrain from engaging my co-workers in discussions about my own psychic activities at my workplace. And the reason is very clear- it’s simply not helpful. We can’t really have the time or privacy to openly discuss what is so often a personal and serious concern. And more to the point, it’s inappropriate to spend company time talking over sensitive situations. Additionally it can be a lost effort if the conversation is interrupted or overheard – so if and when the psychic or spirit communication topic comes up during the workday or if a co-worker approaches me, then I firmly suggest they contact me after work so that they can enjoy my full attention.
Some other benefits: Consultations can help ease the clients mind.
Finally, psychic mediums are not mental health professionals and therefore must really be willing to refer people with needs other than psychic and spirit communications to qualified licensed mental health professionals. Occasionally, consultations result in nothing more happening for that individual. The person received enough information to allow them to make a decision or a choice. Sometimes, that’s all they needed. Consider that a success!
By investing just a few minutes of quality time for the client in a favorable consultation session the psychic medium can explain, prepare, encourage and help direct the person to their next best option.
I hope this little blog about consultations was meaningful and provides you with benefits of investing time and attention into scheduling those important pre-meetings with your perspective clients.
Grounding is great way to recover balance, maintain a healthy perspective and increase inner stability. It often helps create self-confidence, reduces stress and allows for a better flow of thoughts and feelings.
Find a quiet place where you can remain undisturbed for about 5 minutes.
Begin by getting into a comfortable position – standing or sitting usually works best.
Close your eyes and take a normal, calm and un-exaggerated breath.
Next, take another slower but gentle and slightly deeper breath.
Finally, draw in one more full type breath filling your lungs and exhaling slowly to release the breath in a manner that feels focused but not tiring or labored. (Depending upon your mood and circumstances, you may wish to do this quickly or however most feels natural at the time)
Use your imagination to picture a pretty, soft white cloud located in front of you and slightly above to your right side. This is the essence – a small part of the clouds that exist in the heavens. Allow the cloud to float slowly, calmly down over and above your head. See the essence of this cloud gently descend until it touches the crown of your head and allow yourself to feel the calm and peace it signifies. Let this seep into your head – enveloping the space around and inside your brain with soft white light. Imagine the light soothing, cleansing, and replacing any negative thoughts, feelings or emotions –as the light moves within, it displaces all the past hurts, dramas, excitements or disturbing energy that may have been present in your mind. Imagine the cloud to gradually continue moving its way down your whole body and carrying with it all the negative energy until it reaches your feet then exits – melting down into the floor, removing all past negative thought, feelings and emotions.
Next, again use your imagination to picture a globe of white mist located in front of you and slightly above to your right side. This is known as the dew – a small part of the mists that exist in the heavens. Allow the globe to float slowly, calmly down over and above your head. See the mist in this globe gently descend until it touches the crown of your head and feel yourself allowing its soothing refreshment to seep into your head enveloping the space around and inside your brain with soft white mist. Imagine the mist soothing, cleansing, and replacing any negative thoughts, feelings or emotions –as the mist moves within it wipes away all the past faults, disappointments, losses and useless energy that may have been present in your mind. Imagine the globe to gradually continue moving its way down your whole body and carrying with it all the negative energy until it reaches your feet and exits disappearing down into the floor, removing all past negative thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Finally, imagine another ball of dense, white colored fog located in front of you and slightly above to your right side. We call this the veil – a small part of the foggy haze that exist in the heavens. Allow the ball to float slowly, calmly down over and above your head. See the fog gently descend until it touches the crown of your head and feel the welcoming, accepting, embrace of love drift down gently into your head enveloping the space around and inside your brain with luminescent fog. Notice the countess little twinkles that are swirling inside the warm fog. Imagine the fog soothing, cleansing, and replacing any negative thoughts, feelings or emotions –as the fogs moves within it wipes away all the past regrets, fears, failures or stale energy that may have been present in your mind. See the fog gradually continue moving its way down your whole body and carrying with it all the stale energy until it reaches your feet and exits disappearing down into the floor, removing all past negative thought, feelings and emotions.
Lastly, draw in one slow, careful and concentrated breath, and feel this breath being absorbed into the newly created fresh space – release the air with a push outward to free yourself from the meditation. Linger here and enjoy the inner beauty, contentment and well-being. Open your eyes when you feel ready. Now you are grounded.
