Curiosity is a wondrous adventure. It leads to greater understanding and like all things in this universe there is such truth in life through the statement that knowledge is power. We as beings often fear the unknown and while there are some out there that embrace the voids in life, there is still a grain of unsettlement when there is no knowledge in what we are facing. What amazement when we begin to uncover and demystify our own personal unknowns in life, it is a process we are always evolving with in this life of ours. Personal power is a beautiful thing, it allows us to discover the core of our own inner selves and shape us into the individuals that we deeply desire to be. Experience allows us to work from a base, alongside the freedom of exploration to experience new things. Having a mind so powerful that allows us to ask questions and quest for knowledge is a gift we should not ever be wasting.
Being a Psychic and Clairvoyant, it is only natural that I have been asked quite often how this whole process works. Curiosity is something I encounter a lot, between those that desire to know for their own journey into the psychic realms and those that simply have the chance to ask about something they do not fully understand. I welcome such questions, as I always have, because like them I too once had questions that led me to where I have come in my journey. Besides, what a fantastic opportunity to converse and exchange knowledge, you never fully know what someone can offer you unless you talk to one another. One of the biggest loves in my life rests simply in connecting to others, I have learned more about the world that I see and feel through these means than any other. People truly fascinate me.
My attempts to answer the curious and satisfy the need to uncover an unknown, is something I have tried to help others understand as best as I can. It’s taken me some time to try and explain this process and liken it to something that people can find tangible, to help bring them closer to something they can grasp in an everyday way. This is the level I want people to feel it on, as people tend to place Psychic ability somewhere out of reach for themselves and the first steps to development or just understanding is to put it into a context that is accessible. These answers are from my own personal experience, not from books or research, but from the process I am personally taken through and the opinions and beliefs I have developed through those experiences.
When I sit down to do a reading with someone, I am given a range of resources from which I draw upon to read for them. My strongest ability is Clairvoyance, which is the ability to see things in pictures and imagery. When I tune into the energy of the person sitting with me, or in fact those that I am simply linking into, I get to see a series of images that are somewhat like playing charades with Spirit. I have developed a sort of language with Spirit through the years of reading for others, so certain images interpret as a standard message or they may show me things that are personal such as people I know to link names or situations to what the person is going through or experiencing. Mediums have a similar process, with clues put forward by those in Spirit to bring a link between this world and the Other Side. The exciting part can be seeing new things, or how Spirit will put together knowledge that I know about colour, emotions, or things that we in this life are affected by. These images can sit still like a photograph in my mind, or move like a sort of movie being replayed until the message is clear. They can roll through in fast motion, or pause and sit depending on the link and how much they need me to understand. The best example I have been able to help build a bridge to understanding is to say to people to pick a room of their home and picture it in their mind. Perhaps it is your living room, or maybe your bedroom. Most of us are able to walk ourselves through our mind to all the things that are there, taking in the colours of the things that stand out to us, or being able to focus on an object in that room and go up in closer detail if we wanted. It’s a bit like daydreaming, but because it is a familiar place it also invokes different emotions and sensations from the time that we spend there. This is how Clairvoyance works for me, I can see things in the same way that you are able to take yourself into that room in your mind and study the details. The difference is, these are not my images, they are places, people, objects and symbols that are not my own – with the exception of course of those familiar references that Spirit use to help me place names and memories that are similar to that of the person I am reading for. At times I see a word in my mind, a person I have never met, symbolic images like that person walking along a path and encountering different things depending on the situation at hand. I have learned through development how to interpret all these things and bring them into the lives of the people that come to me for guidance.
The next resource that I am able to use is Clairsentience, which is the ability to feel the emotions, physical state of the body or general conditions that person, or someone they know, is going through. When I am giving a reading I begin to feel emotions of the people involved, to feel confusion, happiness, sadness, worry, anxiety, the list goes on. I may even perhaps begin to have a pain in an area of my own body, to feel my stomach upset, a pain in my right knee, or other sensations that give me a clue to what may be happening. These manifestations of energy, emotional or pain, are not always felt in the same way that the reality is, which is why it does not render you in agony or bring you to tears. Although I will admit, there have been some cases where my eyes have gone watery or I had to pull the emotion back as it was so powerful. These impressions are similar to imagining pain or emotion, as we have all experienced this to some degree. We know what it feels like to be happy, or upset, angry and if we imagine a memory that invoked that emotion we can begin to feel it within. Taking yourself to empathise with someone’s pain you can almost feel it yourself. This psychic pain is what I feel, nothing that hurts me in reality, but to feel an impressionable pain in my body that helps me relay the messages about that or give a warning to change a behaviour to avoid it. If Spirit wish to help me further an understanding, they will show me images linked with the pain that I am feeling, so that I can describe it in better detail and come to a conclusion about what it relates to. Clairsentience is how I have been able to understand vibrations, as each being, emotion, feeling, event operates on its own unique vibration. Spiritual understanding takes our inner selves to higher vibrations, while people who endure addictions let’s say are operating on heavier vibrations. It is difficult to explain, but it is the difference between experiencing an amazing day, to a very bad one. You just feel somehow that the bad day is heavier, it weighs upon you. The amazing day seems to lift you up, take you to an elated feeling.
The last resource is somewhat strange to relay over, as it is one that I myself have no real understanding about, since there is no link between not having the information to having it. There are times when during a reading I just know something, as though it is a fact. I would like to say that it comes from making an assumption, but I would not consider it a psychic ability if that was the case. These facts are suddenly just there, as though I already knew it to be true and the ones I am speaking of are quite specific, not generalisations. It is like knowing something from an earlier conversation with a friend, they have told you about something and you are just recalling it again in another conversation. Except in this case, the person in front of me and I have never discussed this before. I often wonder in these cases, which happen frequently but not every time, if perhaps somehow I have tuned into their memory or subconsciously put together information from earlier imagery or feelings in the reading. All I can say is that I just seem to know something, as if by magic. I do not believe I am alone in this, I know that others have experienced similar phenomenon in their lives too, just somehow knowing something but not entirely sure why or how.
All of these things happen simultaneously when I am linking in to a person or energy. Together they form the reading, bring the messages and help me to understand what that person is facing and how things will progress along the pathway they are on. It can happen very fast, when in a matter of moments you are taken through five or six different things. Other times if there is a struggle to get through, then other assessments come, such as dealing with a person who is very guarded or protective of themselves. The language of Spirit over time begins to make sense yet it is always evolving and bringing me new challenges, which is such an interesting aspect of this journey. In the past few years Spirit have brought me a new element in which I am still developing which is Clairaudience. This has been by far, a very challenging ability to get to grips with, but it is one that I am hoping to refine and Spirit can decide how far they would like me to take it. Clairaudience is the ability to literally hear Spirit, like someone talking in your ear or just being in the room. So far it does not happen during readings, save the occasional murmur, yet it is an ability that seems to send me off to sleep many nights. Drifting off to sleep at times, I seem to enter a state where I am able to hear what sounds like people talking on a radio. I hear mostly snippets of sentences, like catching bits of conversations and none of them are often talking to me it always sounds like they are talking to one another. This very peculiar phenomenon has excited me, yet frustrated me all the same as it seems to get lost when I focus upon it. It is however quite comforting and at times helps me sleep and unwind after an exhausting day. I am sure that for many hearing voices may not sound like a healthy thing, yet I can assure you it is not at all a sign of my mental deterioration. I got that confirmed when one of the voices I was hearing happened to be of a friend of mine talking to someone else, it seemed there had been a discussion about me late that night, right at that moment. Which by the way was a positive conversation, so I came to learn. Perhaps that was Spirit’s way of letting me know I didn’t need therapy after all.
A very dear friend of mine recently asked if this process is at all a burden to me, especially when the messages are dealing with hardships or unavoidable destiny. My answer quite simply is no, I have never seen this as a burden ever in my life. I have dealt with both the good and the bad that comes along with this path and you know, it all comes right back to the beginning of this post.
Knowledge is power.
Facing trauma and hardship through my own eyes, but equally through the eyes of others has been such a blessing to me. There is nothing more humbling or powerful to me than having compassion and seeing how utterly amazing the human soul truly is. I have met people who have faced death, abuse, rejection, loss and you know they are not always the ones who are depressed and miserable. At times they are the ones who teach me the strongest lessons and who sit smiling at me counting their blessings in life. Those that are still deeply in the midst of heartbreak and sadness, what better gift than to be the one who can bring a message of hope or peace? When it is not the people here on the Earth plane who are amazing me, it is Spirit bringing love from the Other Side. I have literally been reduced to tears from how inspiring the people I have met have been to me, their stories, their Spirit Guides. Even through the ashes of death life will emerge and it is a true honour to have people invite me into their experiences regardless of how they are.
Those souls have helped me embrace my own path, count my blessings and see life through a brand new pair of eyes. I simply cannot think of a more beautiful gift to have received. If there is one thing I shall treasure until my final breath in this life, it is all the stories retold to me by Spirit of the souls that have sought my guidance. Believe me when I say, each one has taught me something. Each link brings me a new understanding, no matter how mundane their lives might feel or seem to them, there is something powerful in each and every one. I truly take that to heart and I stand humble and grateful to them all.
