I wrote in this post and this post about how I’ve asked for increased contact and clarity in contact. Here is more of the original download I received:
But there is much truth and guidance out there already. It keeps getting published and put out there, but the filters get in the way, and so many can’t understand what is being brought forward. The ones who have been the clearest, purest channels have not been brought out into public as much because the level they spoke at was nearly incomprehensible by most. The Law of One is a prime example. The higher level the being the higher level it’s communication. And so the message that comes through if translated as near perfect as humanly possible is not an easy thing to digest. The easier it is to understand, the more simplified it is, and so the more diluted the message. Which is not to say it is entirely wrong, just that is not entirely right either.
You are taught from the very earliest stages to not trust your own senses. Once you are able to comprehend the messages battering you from every angle and space you are subject to them. School is more about the rote memorization and regurgitation of state-approved data, which often has less to do with fact than it does convenience for and support of the official government sanctioned reality. How successful is a young, energetic being going to be at sitting motionless, staring at screen or paper for hours? Every instinct, every part of that young person is telling them to run, to jump, to go explore and find out. It’s like judging a fish on its ability to climb trees, and finding it lacking. You are being taught conformity and to subject your intellect to outside authority. It’s a very successful system at creating slaves to others.
This is not to say that you don’t learn valuable information in a school. We do not suggest that you should run around naked in the grass with no knowledge of reading, language, science, and art. But rather that the child should be exposed to these in measures that allow them to discover the wonder of them as well as to develop their own physical bodies. You would all benefit from engaging in greater physical activity and spending time out in nature.
I hear this so much! Get out in nature! At least out into the fresh air. Spend time taking deep breaths, grounding and centering yourself. We hear it so many times but just reading about it doesn’t actually do the work, now does it?
You have the time. It doesn’t have to be sitting cross-legged on rock under tree next to a placid pool. Waiting to cross the street? Take a moment, breathe, ground. On with your day.
I mentioned in this post that I’d asked for increased contact and clarity. I’ve been in contact with the Arcturians, and the Pleaideans most recently.
My questions to them during this meditation session were not in the form of direct question to immediate answer, but rather I was asking in general about the state of the planet, the multitude of so-called conspiracy theories and their likelihood of being correct. (Personally there are some I find entirely plausible and have seen enough evidence to convince me of their validity.) I asked them how to increase my ability to clearly discern Truth, and how to use this to better be of service to others.
I received a download and when I got back to my computer I asked for guidance on how to best express the download. This is what I wrote:
Ask yourself this. What would it take then to get you to believe? Because you and I know, that you are not crazy. That you have these experiences, see and feel these amazing things is not a sign of your mental breakdown but rather your enhanced and opening awareness. Do others see as you do? Yes and no.
Conversely, what would it take to shake your trust in sources, in media outlets, in government officials, and the multinational corporations? What would it take to prove to you they don’t have your best interests at heart? What would take to get you to even question their motives, their actions? Despite the wealth of evidence to the contrary, their propaganda and marketing continue to sway the hearts and minds of most Americans. Or, has something cracked the façade?
You see what is true. You see what is accurate. But this does not make it an absolute Truth. Because you are seeing what is true for you. This breaks into many different ways of seeing something. We’ve all heard the analogy, “some see an angel, some see an extraterrestrial.” Our perceptions are the product of our limited physical vision, and the filters imposed by ourselves and society.
This is why it is so important to develop your own discernment. Getting input from others is vital yes. Discuss, collaborate, compare, seek guidance with other like-minded people. This will provide you with much needed validation, confirmation, and build your sense of community and belonging.
However, do not get so stuck into following one person, one guide, one teacher blindly and to the exclusion of all else. If any being tells you it is the only one true way you should immediately doubt their sincerity and alignment.
The single most important tool you have is your compassionate, detached discernment. Practice reading everything about these topics that catch your interest. Especially the ones that trigger you. Don’t push yourself past any comfort zones! But strive to achieve a means to explore why you’re being triggered. It often points to areas within yourself that need healing.
I saw a craft pass overhead last night. I was outside, it was around 8ish, and I was looking up at the stars overhead as I walked through my yard with my dogs. It was so clear! Then I noticed that one star was moving. I stopped, it kept going. Not an aircraft, it was too high and not flashing, just a solid, bright white light. I tried talking to it, asked if it was a craft to “do something” like change course, or color. It didn’t change course, but it did hop around a bit, jumping side to side. It also changed to red, then blue, then it just faded out. Faded. Nothing like a conventional aircraft. Pretty cool!
We’re all going to start seeing these things more and more. It’s part of This. This Disclosure, This Ascension, This Event. We who are the already Awake are critical now. Speaking up, finding our voices, telling our truths is essential for those who are just now getting their Wake Up calls. The ones who are slapping the snooze button, or just rolling over and rubbing their eyes. The who have seen one or two things and wish they could go back to sleep. We’ve been there, done that. Now we need to help, support and encourage the waking ones. It’s what we signed up for. We’ve done this before, on a multitude of other planets, in other systems. We’ve got this. Hold to the Love and the Light of Source, bring it into your daily life.
I’ve been asking for more contact, better contact, and more clarity. I got it! Not just the sighting, which was cool – but – the rational right brain side of Me says that it could have been any number of other things. But, the psychic Me, the tuned in Me, knows that was a craft.
Best part, the craft sighting was confirmation of my meditation earlier that evening. My communication with my Guides and Allies has been increasing – both in clarity and in reliability. I’ve asked for increased training, and it’s been taking place, both in the 3D physical and on the astral. One of the clearest messages I’ve been getting is that I need to write. The literal message was, “Writing is your super-power!”
You’ve probably heard me mention I have a book coming out soon. A novel, paranormal romance with a whole new breed of shifters. It’s a series really, and I’ve been struggling with getting Book Two written. I knew the basic story arc, but just could not see the WHY. I needed it to be more than just a bunch of scenes strung together. I’ve been asking for the story, I’ve been meditating, and last night, got the answer. Saw the whole thing, saw the WHY the story is important. The short version, it’s about facing your dark side, and learning to embrace it and transform it.
It was after I got the download for Book Two that I went outside, and was musing about wanting confirmation for my increasing contact, and the different ways my psychic abilities and contact are increasing. Looked up and … craft in the sky.
It’s gonna be awesome! And I mean more than just my book. It’s been said over and over, but it needs to be heard, and really taken in:
WE are the ones we’ve been waiting for. WE are loved and supported by an entire array of beautiful, benevolent beings, but WE are the ones here, on the ground, in the dirt, doing the work. WE are the ones who will transform the Earth by transforming ourselves. Be the Love and the Light of Source.
Today I’m talking about the definition of multi-dimensional entities, and contact with them.
Have you encountered a multi-dimensional? What was that experience like? Are you fearful and fascinated at the same time? It’s easy to be fearful with these beings because they’re so far outside of what we’re told is “normal.” But it’s also incredibly fascinating – beings from other worlds are reaching out to you!

PM me on Facebook if you’re having contact, and want to move from fearful to feeling protected and ready to communicate with multi-dimensionals. We can talk about how I get my clients protected and comfortable with out of this world contact.
Hello galactic souls! If you’re here, then you’re having experiences. My whole goal is to serve people who are experiencing contact with multi-dimensional entities.
What’s that? I use the term multi-dimensional entities to encompass beings that may or may not be present in our physical 3D reality: ghosts, elementals, faery folk, extraterrestrials. These beings have the ability to appear and disappear from sight. Some appear indistinguishable from a mundane human, others are clearly not.
This contact can be beautiful, enlightening, but it is usually startling, and often frightening. To see a being standing at the foot of your bed, appear in front of your eyes, or – in my case – manifest so that you physically bump into them, is unsettling to say the least. When it happens repeatedly, it can amplify the feelings of fear and anxiety.
It’s not unusual at all to pick up on the energies and emotional detritus in places that have even a little history. What is harder, is being able to sort out the nature of the experience. Is it a ghost? (Meaning the spirit of a deceased human that remain stuck on Earth.) Is it just some left over energetic residue that is able to manifest but has no real intellect behind it? Was it human? Or not? Is it of Earth, or some other planet?
It’s easy to be taken by surprise when encountering a multi-dimensional. It’s not typically something that happens on a set schedule. It’s easy to feel fear because the shock temporarily stops your brain from working properly. It’s too busy registering the fact that a being just popped in front of you out of thin air.
Often, these beings want to tell us something. They have a vital piece of information they’re trying to communicate – particularly the extraterrestrials. Are you getting the message clearly? Are you able to understand what these beings are trying to tell you?
If you are experiencing contact with multi-dimensional beings, and you have not been able to understand or communicate with them, please PM me. If you are done guessing, and you’re ready to commit to understanding these beings, and communicating with them, PM me and find out how I’m helping my clients grow and develop their natural psychic abilities.
If you want to connect with other like-minded souls, in a non-judgemental space, come join my Free Facebook Group, Connect With Your Galactic Potential. We will talk about our experiences, and share tips for developing our psychic gifts. The Earth is changing! Are you ready?
It just doesn’t work. I recently had this confirmed for me with stunning clarity while I was traveling in Rome. I was attacked by a very powerful male spirit while touring the summer home of the Pope. It was one of the most disturbing and powerful psychic attacks I’ve ever experienced.
Then, I got to talk about it on Coast to Coast AM. On October 27th, I called in for open lines. Dave Schrader was hosting, and said he wanted to hear “Your scariest paranormal experiences.” I got lucky, and got right through. Big thanks to Dave and the Coast to Coast team for taking my call!
I was hesitant at first, and a little nervous. Sure, it’s one thing to type away, and hit post on my blog. Quite another to have my voice instantly projected around the world. The enormity of it hit me, and I felt like I was stumbling, reaching for how to describe what I’d gone through. Then my Guides whispered in my ear, and I knew what I had to say.
It’s all about Love. Love really will overcome all, heal all, even if at times it doesn’t seem possible. It’s often a nasty, painful process, and holding onto Love is the hardest thing you’ll ever do. When you come out the other side though, you’ll see how far you’ve come, and how much you’ve grown.
We have the free will to accept it, or not. But Love is always the answer. Everyone needs to hear this right now. The time right now is crucial. This is why my Guides nudged me to get up and call when I heard Dave say the phone lines were open. Why I got through without any trouble. The world needs to hear, in as many voices, and languages, and ways possible, that Love is the answer.
The challenge is accepting that truth. It’s easy to say, “Love is the answer, Love wins” when the sun is shining, and life is rosy. Holding on to Love though, in your darkest moments, will be your biggest challenge. You may find though, that it’s also your greatest strength.
I’ve had some astral fights. Actual battles. Throwing energy bolts, shaping weapons and dueling it out. There’s definitely an empowering sense of accomplishment to it. You’ve just vanquished evil! Or have you?
In my experience, anything I’ve fought has come back at me again, at some point in time. I haven’t defeated anything. I’ve even had my battle energies absorbed, and make the being I’m confronting stronger. That’s generally not helpful.
But evil cannot stand before Love. When I switched my strategy to loving anything that came at me, I was far more successful. Instead of being drained and vulnerable after meeting up with some nasty astral being, I was filled with gentle, energizing warmth. And the “bad guy?” Gone, not a problem anymore.
I had always wondered though; just how effective would Love be against some really Big Baddie? I don’t run into much more than very angry dead people in Seattle. I do encounter nasty critters sometimes while out travelling astrally, but that’s rare. I tend to stick to the lighter astral planes, avoiding the darker, lower levels. I know there’s bigger baddies out there than I’ve run across, and so the question has crossed my mind more than once.
I was answered on my recent trip to Rome. Absolutely, unequivocally.
Castel Gandolfo is perched on the lip of dormant volcano. Until Pope Francis, the tiny hilltop community has been home to the Pope during the sweltering summer months. Pope Francis though has declined it’s use, and recently opened the palace and extensive gardens up for tours.
It was while wandering through this light, airy building, filled with paintings of past Popes, and some really spectacular antiques and paintings, that I was confronted by an angry male spirit. My Guides tell me it was a past Pope, but I was not given a name. He certainly considered himself of primary importance in the church. Swelling with righteous indignation he swirled around me, arrogant and commanding. “You don’t belong here. This is a holy place. You defile it! Witch! Evil!” And there was more, in increasingly rude and vile terms. Heat too; I was swamped in it. Yes, it was late summer, but we were above the hotter temperatures of Rome itself. The rooms were pleasantly cool, until sudden, thick heat swaddled me. Dark tentacles of negative energy wrapped around my auric field, probing, seeking to pierce through my shields to attach to my physical body.
A headache started to throb. I pulled out my selenite disc, holding the protective crystal to my solar plexus. The pressure of his hatred eased, pushed back by the cleansing crystal, but the headache continued to grow. He poked and tested at my shields as I walked, “Begone! Leave my home! I will not tolerate such foulness polluting my chambers!”
So we traded, back and forth. I would push him away, or he would back off, judging how next to strike. The full pressure of his aggression eased when I got out of the palace but the headache continued to grow. He followed me – sometimes closely, sometimes distantly – as we continued on our tours. Always there though, reaching with his tentacles of black energy, probing, testing.
Our last stop was the Catacombs. They don’t even know how many are buried there, and it was used by ancient Christians because it gave them a relatively safe space to gather that was outside the official city limits.
I heard the screaming before I got off the bus. I’d already told my husband I couldn’t go in. I wasn’t up for it. He wasn’t either, although for non-paranormal reasons, and we called for a car to take us back to the hotel.
Ordinarily I would ground and use the Earth’s energy to augment my shields and energies, but this path was closed, horribly so. The ground, even outside the Catacombs was saturated with death, grounding just tapped into the energy of all those souls.
Not helpful. All I could do was focus on holding my shields and expanding my heart chakra field so that it encompassed all of me. My Guides gave me their love and support, helping keep the physical symptoms at tolerable levels. The angry Pope’s malice was lost in the overwhelming energies of the Catacombs.
Finally, the driver arrived, and the heavily tainted energy receded as we sped away. The pressure against my shields eased, as did the headache and the nausea. By the time we reached the hotel, I was feeling much better. Enough to go out shopping around Rome with my husband through the late afternoon and evening.
All was fine until night fell. The headache and nausea crept back, and I started to feel dizzy as well. I realized that the angry male spirit, who I thought I’d shaken off, still lingered. It might have just been that it was night, but his energy levels were stronger, and he was relentless. Heavy black limbs struck again and again, wrapping around my shields and squeezing while trying to worm in toward my body. I was in an astral fight, struggling to look and act normal for my husband as we wandered the streets of Rome.
At times, I was able to override the physical sensations when I was able to hold my energies and shields at full capacity. But it was draining, holding my shields in that manner. Returning to the hotel, I lost sight of the angry Pope again in the general psychic noisiness of the old building. Exhausted, I immediately fell asleep. Only to bolt awake around 1:30 am. Crushing fear and anxiety had my thoughts racing and my heart pounding. Gradually it slowed, even as the consuming fear grew.
He wanted to kill me, he said so, over and over. He was the source of the fear. He was proud of the anguish he inflicted, grinning as he drove harsh waves of negative energy at me. The level of his power, and the depth of his anger – which to his thinking was fully justified – only confirmed what my Guides had already told me.
Away from the death-soaked grounds of the Catacombs however, I was able to ground, drawing the loving, healing energy of Mother Gaia up into my physical form. It washed through me, soothing, and energizing. I reached for my Guides, and was bathed in their loving support. I took it all in, and the darkness and fear fled from my being, shrinking from Love.
I offered Reiki to the Pope. I offered the Bridge of Light to help him cross over, and be healed of his hate and anger. I showed him the path. I filled the room with the loving energies from my heart chakra, from Mother Gaia, and my many astral allies. He hissed at me, and vanished completely. The nausea and dizziness from his attacks dissipated like mist in the sun. I was whole, and my heart filled with bliss, banishing any lingering shadows. “He’s truly gone this time.” My Guides whispered with absolute assurance. I slept peacefully then for the first time since leaving home.
You might never be in an astral fight, but at some point in your life, you are going to face Love and Fear. Probably more than once. Each time you choose Love, you heal yourself. Maybe just a little, maybe a whole lot at once, but the healing is real. Let yourself feel it.
Losing Mom wasn’t the hardest part. The hardest part is dealing with the aftermath. Trying to keep siblings from gouging each other’s hearts out ranks right up there in the Top Two Most Difficult Aspects of Losing a Parent. Then there’s cleaning out the mountains of debris and accumulated detritus crowding Mom’s home of close to 50 years. And oh boy, could she pack it in! Every crevice and cranny was stuffed, quite literally to the rafters, with…everything. I found report cards from every grade. Every. One. The silly notes I passed between friends at school. Faded art projects. And while I have no desire to actually keep the majority of the stuff I unearthed, it still gave me a pretty serious pang to have to throw it all away.
Now comes the paranormal part…
Mom’s house is 1500 miles away from the home I live in now, in Seattle. I was last there a couple months ago, after Mom passed, to help with cleaning and to pick up some items. I stayed in my old bedroom and listened to the sounds of the house around me as I lay awake late at night. This creak, or that sigh as it shifted in the wind, and the clicks and whirrs of the appliances and heating system were all so very familiar.
Also familiar was the sound of Mom’s footsteps as she’d walk down the hall to the bathroom. Her tread was light, but still thudded softly on the thick carpet of the upstairs hall. And there – the squeak of the loose floorboard right outside my room. Two nights in a row, I heard those footsteps, and that distinct squeal that could only be the sound of weight pressing on that creaky spot. The first night, she even paused outside my door, and tapped on it softly.
Did I get up and answer? Nope. I’m ashamed to admit that when the absolute reality of life after death smacked me in the face at 1 a.m. I was afraid. Not of Mom. I wasn’t afraid of her spirit standing there on the other side of the door.
It was a purely visceral reaction to the validation of everything I believed. The fear was because I sorta held onto a bit of doubt about – everything. That night, that tiny bit of doubt was obliterated.
Even after decades of paranormal experiences – physically running into ghosts, communicating with them, and having those experiences validated by other sources, I still held onto a tiny kernel of skepticism. And I was okay with that. I was okay with the dichotomy of believing and not believing. My own Schroedinger’s Cat scenario – both real and not real. I could tell people, “Well, this happened, but…” As if that ‘but’ gave me, and everyone else, a way to dismiss what I was legitimately experiencing.
Hearing Mom walk the hallway, just like she did in life, erased forever any lingering doubt I might have had. And that was just a bit terrifying.
It was also freeing. I no longer had to cling to that little kernel. There was simply no other explanation for the sound of her footsteps, and the creak of the floorboard than the presence of her spirit walking past my door. Period. And if her spirit was real, then it suddenly made everything else I’d seen, or heard, or felt, just as real.
The second night, Mom once more stood outside my bedroom door and gently tapped. This time, I talked to her. She was concerned about some family stuff, and I reassured her. She wanted to let me know she was okay, and still around. I told her I was grateful she came back this night, after I was so afraid the night before. We had a good talk, comforting, and she faded away. I knew she wouldn’t be back.
And that was okay. Because although her body was gone, her spirit lives on. I no longer have any doubts about that at all.
Tell me, what made you believe? I would love to hear your stories!
On Saturday, Oct. 22, I drove out to Concrete, WA for Forest Moon Paranormal’s first Paracon. Concrete is tucked in the mountains near the Washington-Canada border, at the base of Mt.Baker. Multiple UFO sightings, an active Bigfoot population, and the town of Concrete itself is extremely haunted. You couldn’t ask for a more perfect location for this event. And it is unbelievably beautiful. I mean really, just look at this!
Paracon = Paranormal Conference, in case you were wondering. It was my first, and I had no idea what to expect. I was hoping to hear some interesting speakers, maybe learn something, and this Paracon really delivered.
Every speaker that I heard did such a great job of presenting their topic, answering questions, and being available to talk with anyone. I got there late, so I missed the Bigfoot presentation, and only caught the very end of the UFO talk, but here’s what I did hear.
A thorough, basic primer on the how-to’s of paranormal investigation. Their discussion included definitions of common paranormal terms, safety considerations, and some really amazing pictures they’ve taken on investigations. What I really liked, and haven’t seen in many paranormal groups, was the respect and compassion F.O.G. maintains for their human clients AND the spirits they find during investigations.
S.J. and Russ have been investigating the paranormal for well over 30 years. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, and are experiencing paranormal activity you would like investigated, contact S.J. and Russ at F.O.G. Paranormal
Tying the Paranormal Together with Christina George.
Christina George is a paranormal investigator and radio host with Paranormal Connections. Christina’s talk centered on the idea that all paranormal aspects are linked. Historically, this idea has not been popular in the para-community. The ghost investigators didn’t have much to do with the UFO peeps, and neither had anything to do with Bigfoot crowd.
Christina has over 20 years in the paranormal field, and has found that people who experience the paranormal often experience all of it – spirit contact, seeing UFO’s, developing psychic abilities. So if you’re going to investigate, it makes sense to expand and investigate all of it. Otherwise, links and commonalities that are vital to understanding these phenomena can easily be missed.
Experiencers: The Importance of the First Hand Account with Dave Scott of Spaced Out Radio.
Dave shared his personal experiences – with ghosts, aliens and Bigfoot. More than just telling his stories, Dave’s presentation illustrated something that everyone who’s had a brush with the paranormal thinks at one point or another – Am I the only one who’s experienced this?
No. You’re not. You’re not crazy, you’re not alone. And it is critical to get out, find like-minded folks and share what you’ve seen. Many experiencers never speak up because they’re afraid; of losing family or friends, of being ostracized, even of losing their job. Dave pointed out that even in paranormal investigations, the person’s individual experience is sometimes cast aside as unimportant – because it cannot be measured, or otherwise validated. This is inherently wrong. Our experience is crucial; what we see, what we feel, must also be recorded and shared.
He did point out that it’s important we do this in a safe environment. But those places are out there. The three groups I’ve mentioned are all a really good place to start.
I was so impressed with all the speakers. The common thread through all the presentations was one of respect. Respect for people telling their stories. Respect for the beings who trigger the phenomena. Respect for other investigators. There was a definite sense of cooperation and camaraderie between all the participants and speakers. I have been experiencing the paranormal my whole life, but I am a total newbie when it comes to trying to network with others who have. The people at this Paracon were all welcoming, friendly and it was a huge relief to be able to talk and share openly.
I have to give big kudos to Eric Cooper, his wife Issy, and everyone who worked so hard to put together and pull off this event. Eric is the founder of Forest Moon Paranormal, a paranormal crisis team. Forest Moon is one of the few groups I’ve found (the other being F.O.G) that considers the spirit’s well-being when they are helping clients affected by paranormal activity.
What so many people forget is that ghosts are people, usually people who have suffered a terrible, traumatic event in addition to dying. These spirits are often in pain, frightened and confused, which can cause them to lash out in anger. As I nurse, I can attest to the fact that living humans do this – I’ve seen it first hand. Humans in fear and pain, whether they’re alive or dead, deserve to be treated with compassion and respect to help ease that fear and pain. The good people at Forest Moon and F.O.G. never lose sight of that when they respond to a client’s request for help.
This event will be back next year. I know I’m planning on being there.
Ghost hunting is the new, fun thing. The plethora of paranormal reality shows on multiple cable channels testifies to the popularity of experiencing a touch of the spirit world.
Want to try it yourself? Plenty of paranormal groups offer tours and pay-to-play ghost hunts. If you’re in a city, chances are good a quick Internet search will hook you up with local investigators. You might make new friends and want to get even more involved.
If you’re going to go a-hunting, you must take steps to protect yourself. All the rules for self-protection in non-paranormal situations apply.
Stay aware of your surroundings.
Go with at least one other person.
Tell others where you are going and when you expect to be back.
Don’t trespass; always get permission to enter.
Haunted locations are sometimes off the beaten path, far from the safety of a fast 911 reaction time. They’re also sometimes inhabited by purely physical beings who may or may not be there legally. They may not appreciate your wanderings if you’re in what they consider “their space.”
Physical preparedness is only half the equation, though. What do you do once you’re there, in the space, and shit starts to get weird? The atmosphere shifts, cold settles over you, you feel waves of unsettling emotions, or even a touch, shove or scratch?
Well, damn! Too real for you now? You were hoping for “something” but now you’re getting more than you hoped for? This is not the time to suddenly try and slap up some psychic protections. Take some time before heading out to tune into your own awareness, and take protective measures.
Ummm, psychic what? Whether you think you’re talented in the psy department or not, everyone who walks into a paranormal situation should have some protection, and not the kind you buy in little foil wrappers. Because you’re dealing with beings who may be angry, or may want to try and do you harm, you need to ensure your safety – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical.
If you walk into a situation unprepared, you increase your risk. That’s just basic common sense. You need to wrap your head around the fact that protecting yourself from discarnate beings is part of interacting with the spiritual realms. Otherwise you are setting yourself up for a world of hurt.
How do you do that though?
Stay calm. Breathe, meditate, pray, take a walk, do whatever works for you to put you in a calm state of mind. It is not a good idea to walk into a location with heightened emotions running through you. An argument with your significant other, road rage, a bad day at work will all wreak havoc on your peace of mind, generating stress, anger, frustration, sadness. There are discarnate beings who love the taste of these emotions. Quite literally they feed off of them, and if you walk in seething from whatever, you are going to ring like a dinner bell and light up like a neon sign blazing “Come and Get It!” into the aether. So get your head in a Zen space before you get to the location.
Ask for your allies to be near you and keep you safe. Work within whatever spiritual framework resonates with you. Pray for your angels, invoke your guardian spirits, call for your guides, or totem animals. Take time to center yourself, and connect strongly with those beings who love and protect you. Ask that they work with you for the highest good.
Be confident. Not arrogant. Not in the “I’m the baddest bad ass in the place. I will mess you up, demon! Who wants some?” sense. Arrogance and pride are also delicious for these beings. Be confident in your heart that you are coming from a place of compassion. Set your intention that you are trying to help all beings reach a safe, loving place. Be confident that your allies and your protections will keep you safe.
Bragging and taunting have no place in this work. You might certainly get a TV worthy response, but what you are doing in most cases is tormenting a being who is already in excruciating pain. That’s not brave, or admirable – it puts you in the same class as bullies who kick puppies.
Surround yourself with protective, white light. I know, we’ve all heard this one a bazillion times. The White Light, blah, blah. Except, this one works. It does. Plain, simple, effective.
There is a catch though – you gotta feel it and see it. In psychic work, often our other senses kick in and we experience sensations of touch, or scents, hearing voices or seeing visions – either with our physical eyes or 3rd eye. Use this to your advantage when setting up protective shields.
So when I say, see it, I mean I want you to visualize a brilliant white light surrounding you, enveloping you completely. Use your imagination, close your eyes if you need to and see this light around you. If you like, it can be tinged with silver, or blue, or purple, but make it bright and make it white.
When I say feel it, I want you to imagine what it feels like when this light surrounds you. Does it feel cozy and warm? Or pleasantly cool? Is it smooth against your skin? Or soft and fuzzy like a snuggly blanket? What sensations make you feel safe? Imagine those accompany this white light.
Next, set the intention in your mind that this white light will surround you until you consciously remove it. See it, feel it, and then tell yourself this will be with you, protecting you, the whole time.
If at any time you feel like it’s slipping or fading, stop, and re-build it in your mind.
You may want to leave the white light up until you get home. Then remember to consciously take it down.
It’s not just your imagination. Or rather, it is, but your imagination is far more powerful than you probably think. When working in the astral realms or with discarnate beings, thoughts are things. You create with your mind, and you do that with your imagination. It is therefore imperative that you keep your thoughts calm, and clear
It’s a really good idea to cleanse yourself when you leave. Brush a selenite wand over your aura, burn some sage and smudge, whatever cleansing acts work for you. I’ll cover cleansing in detail in another post.
I’m happy to see that interest in the paranormal is on the rise. More and more are waking up to the fact that the world is much bigger, and weirder, than they realized. New investigations, new information are all necessary if we are to truly learn about and understand these strange realms.
Exploring new worlds though, requires caution. Go out there, but do so safely. Common sense and respect are essential.
I love hiking! Ok, so I don’t backpack into the back country. Yet anyway. But I am so fortunate that here in the Puget Sound I have access to so many different types of hiking trails to explore.
Being out in Nature forges a connection between you and the Earth that you just can’t get in the city. The energies of the water, the trees and the animals all combine in a way that can only be described as magical. It’s good for you on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
If you’re at all sensitive to these subtle energies, you very quickly realize that you aren’t the only one out there on the trail.
Hauntings don’t only happen in the city. The spirits and energies of the dead can be found anywhere people have been, even if no one lives there now. Haunted forests, trails, ghost towns are found around the world.
I know what you’re thinking. “I want to go to there.”
You can start here, with this article. It says it’s a list of most haunted hikes in every state, but a number of them are abandoned asylums or other facilities that appear to require more like a short walk from the street rather than a hike through some wilderness. But maybe that suits your hiking style – no judgement here! They all have suitably spooky histories attached. In my home state of Washington they list the Iron Goat Trail, site of an avalanche that caused two trains to derail. Now I know my next hiking trip.
So maybe you pick a spot from the list above, or maybe you google “Haunted Hiking Trails in California” (or Rhode Island, or – you get the idea) and set off on your adventure. Here’s tip Number One.
Don’t build up a great big set of expectations. Don’t count on the fact that you’re going to see or feel all the stuff from the descriptions. Because that’s one of the best ways I know of to not experience the paranormal.
Yes, some people have big encounters – physical, audible, visual – that are stunning. And yes, some places are notorious for consistent encounters. You may very well be that lucky; and if you are I want to hear about it!
Typically though these energies are subtle, and you need to practice tuning in to them. We can all do it to a certain degree. But it does take a conscious effort. The following can help you refine your paranormal senses.
Quiet your mind. Easier said than done, right? Thoughts creep, flit and fly through our minds constantly, and often we are not consciously aware of them. Thoughts resist being stilled and will work doubly hard to get your attention; especially when you first start practicing. Meditation is an excellent teacher of quieting the mind. It’s a skill you want to work on every day, so that when you are out in the field, you already know what to do and how to achieve that quiet mind.
Open your senses. More than what you see, what do you hear? Is there a smell that doesn’t belong – pipe smoke in an otherwise empty cemetery? Perfume in an abandoned cabin? Avoid attaching a judgement or analysis to what you experience such as, “that must be the miner’s pipe” or “the wife must’ve worn that perfume.” Did you feel a touch on your hair? Or feel someone brush past you who isn’t there? Be aware of, notice everything going on around you.
Go beyond your physical senses. Do you feel an emotion that seems to well up from nowhere? Or a thought that pushes at you from outside your skull? Again, avoid judgements and simply experience it. Or – do you get a sense of rushing or prickling inside your skin, like energy moving from one spot to another?
Wait patiently. You must be willing to sit in a quiet space for some period of time. Spirits do not appear on schedule like a show. This isn’t Ghost Theater. Sit. Breathe. Quiet your mind. Open all your senses. What do you experience?
Hiking a haunted trail gives you a twofer. You can connect with the nature spirits AND commune with the departed. Even if the haunted area does not bring forth ghosts, you can still use all of the above to reach out and connect with Nature. Water, Earth and Sky spirits are all around you. Can you sense them and hear their messages?
Is there a downside?
What do you do if the spirits you connect with aren’t entirely friendly? If you’re going to embark on psychic adventures you should probably have some psychic defenses. Because not everything out there in the other dimensions wants to be your friend.
