Setting The Record Straight: Does It Matter?

SettingI know we often make a point about setting the record straight. We all want our version of the truth to be recognised. And that can be complicated when even the facts are in dispute.

I’ve spent a lot of my time helping the underdogs who are hoping that setting the record straight will finally get their injustices acknowledged. But I know as a species we are very good at ignoring anything that we don’t want to see. Or interpreting our actions as a justified response to what the other person or side has done. Or even not done. Because we are also easily influenced by the tittle tattle and gossip spread by other people. Those who have a vested interest in hiding part, or even all, of the truth. And if the outcome is something we desire, if it’s on our agenda, then we are much less likely to want anyone setting the record straight. For a long time I have felt that it mattered. That all of us deserve to be heard. Whether right or wrong.

I believe that only when differences are aired will there be a chance of moving forward. I also know that to do that requires a better way of communicating. It also means I have to be prepared to be open, flexible and prepared to take a different view of things. Yet I have also recognised, with the help of my Guides, that setting the record straight may not always be as important as I think. Or feel. In life sometimes the most important thing is to have the experience. Then move on. I sometimes try to explain that to the people I help. Being heard is important. But not at the expense of the rest of my life. I also know that time and karma have a way of bringing around the right opportunity to be heard. This gives me a different way of dealing with injustice.

Setting the record straight is never an issue for the Guides. They can see the bigger picture. Unlike us they are sure that everything will turn out for the best. For my spiritual evolution. And for the spiritual evolution of all those who have crossed my path. If you are burning to set the record straight think about what it will achieve. Then move forward as if it has been achieved.

Transformation: Letting Guides Show You The Way

transformationI’ve always been intrigued when new Guides start to make their presence felt. I feel as if a transformation has started. From one Guide to the next. And by implication from one me to the next.

Several months ago I started to get a physical signal from a new Guide. He has told me the name he would like me to use for him. Although I know from experience that he has not given me his correct name yet. Because this process of getting to know one another is founded on faith and trust. It’s also build on the changes occurring within me. I am going through another transformation. It happens every time I pass a spiritual test, clear more of the stuck energy and progress to a a new level of self understanding. Working in the service of Guides is always about getting to a new level of understanding me. So that I can reassure others that changing is always a better option. And, of course, be of more service.

However, the transformation is not to rewrite my personality or my characteristics. The change is to become more ‘me’. My Guide Team expands every time I discover another aspect of me to integrate. It might be the painter me. Or the writer me. It could be the healing me. Even the challenging me. As a Spirit I have wisdom and skills from other lifetimes. Along with the wisdom of my Guides. They can see the talents that I find it hard or impossible to acknowledge. And the encourage me to use them. To play with the idea of what else I might be able to do. Transformation, for my Guides, is about learning to be joyful in exploration. Taking a chance on an adventure and seeing where it will all lead. Learning to be brave about being me.

People often ask how they can get in touch with Guides. First, ask them to talk to you. Second, pay attention to what you feel. And not to what you think. Finally, be open to the extraordinary within your everyday life. Understand that your Guides are there. Because all you have to do is take the first step towards them.

Wading In The Water: Rebalancing My Energy

WadingRather unexpectedly I have ended up away from home again. Though it has given me a great opportunity to spend some time checking out the area I’m visiting. And to get myself wading in the warm water on a sunny evening.

I love the water. Especially since it represents emotions. And my flow of energy. As I have changed my personal energy vibration by opening up to my intuition the flow of water has helped me to clear out stuck feelings. Wading into the waves this evening I thought about my journey over the past thirteen years. That is when I really began to embrace the idea that all things were energy and therefore connected. Through the growing bond with my Guides and their insistence that I could develop strong contact with them I cautiously stepped in the wave s of my own emotions. And realised how much heavy energy I was carrying. From so long ago. That began my process of clearing and cleaning.

As I waded deeper tonight, delighted to let the warm water wash away any used up energy, I realised that I have come such a long way. I am very blessed. And extremely grateful for all of the help and support I have had along my path. Working and being of service to the Spirit and Energy Beings has brought me so much. In return for balancing the energy around me I have also been balancing my own personal energy. Giving and taking at the same time. What has come back to me from the flow of energy is the love and kindness of so many others.  Now I know I wade through an ocean of loving positivity shared by those who are walking along side of me. Wading along together we are all achieving a clearing and cleansing.

Our combined efforts are going out far and wide in our world. Flowing through waves of low vibrational energy to help others join in wading through the warmth of unconditional love. I am so excited to be a part of this sea of change. A sea that is rebalancing each one of us who wants to live a happier life by sharing together. Is it time for you to take a walk in the water?

Body’s Connections To Full Moon Energy

Body'sSometimes it takes me a little time to put things together. Especially my body’s connection to the energy. I tend to forget that, as a clairsentient, I can ‘feel’ all sorts of things that physically don’t belong to me. Often when I notice symptoms I have to check is it me – or is it someone else.

Realising I was strongly clairsentient was like being told I had to learn the language of another planet. Spoken by an inhabitant of a third planet. It was a challenge. First of all I had to identify what I was feeling. Then observe my body’s response when the Spirit and Energy Beings were around me. I might feel their emotions. Or their physical characteristics. And had to cross check that those things were separate from my own body’s reactions. Not easy to sort out. However, because I’m tenacious I stuck with it. Until I was satisfied that I could tell the difference.

Then my Guides started to link me into Mother Earth, the Moon and one or two of the other planets in our solar system. I began to ‘feel’ their physical energy. Including their pain as well as their elation. Finding out I could do this was a surprise. But it’s actually a logical extension of being clairsentient and able to ‘read’ energy. Any energy. Now and again I’m called on to ‘feel’ the pain of the Earth and to transfer it away. Exactly like I would when I am working with healing energy for a client. I finally realised last night that I was involved in Earth healing as the Full Moon energy made it’s presence felt.

My body’s response to this Full Moon was painful. Especially in my root chakra. There was a wobble going on that I had to focus my healing energy on.

However all the Reiki I did for myself to release the pain seemed to make things worse. Until I checked with my Guides. It was a relief in one way to find out the root chakra wobble wasn’t mine. It was the planet reacting to the Moon energy. The ‘pull’ and ‘push’ of getting ready for new beginnings. As the Full Moon arrive this afternoon I walked on the beach letting the water sooth my energy. The pain was gone. Any wobble had disappeared. I felt ready to take a big leap forward. I was also sure that others would have been dealing with the Earth’s energy.

So I popped onto my Facebook to do a live broadcast. There are many strongly clairsentient people who will have been wondering what was happening to them. It felt good to be able to explain my body’s response to the energy. And hopefully others could take some reassurance from understanding their intuitive ability too. Then I thought about my last Letters From The Light Side broadcast. In it I explained there would be some strong energy from Monday night and through Tuesday. If only I had remembered sooner. My body’s reaction would have made sense much sooner.

I love the way I am still learning to put it all together. And that my Guides let me work it out for myself. Until I’m stuck and ask. Or cheer me on when I’ve got the bigger picture. I’m also honoured to be involved in clearing Mother Earth’s energy field. The more of us that can do this the better she will become. Next time you find yourself with random symptoms, aches and pains take a moment. Are you experiencing your own clairsentient ability?

Powered Down: Taking A Trip Without Technology

powered downI escaped today to my little retreat place. Being organised I brought everything I thought I would need. Nothing left behind or forgotten. Until I got here and found that I had two charging leads. And no charging plug. Or any way to recharge my phone or computer. So I powered down the technology. And spent a night without it.

Of course being powered down meant I couldn’t get my blog uploaded to the website. Or shared on my social media. Nor could I surf the internet or play any games. Nor could I read the book I’ve just started on my Kindle app. I decided that I had really been powered down by leaving the plug behind. And perhaps I needed to be focused on my retreat instead of the wide world that is accessible from my devices. But it still felt very strange to watch TV and not also scan my emails, comments or have message conversations. I was really reminded that I multi task a lot nowadays. Perhaps that is a good thing. But not when something actually needs my full focus.

Like my Guides. And what they had to say about my trip the next day to meet a lovely friend who was over visiting this country. I decided that they had powered me down so that I would pay attention to what the energy was all about. My energy was certainly full of old and irritating thoughts. Random worries that no longer fit into my life. Past echoes that I thought had actually been dissolved a while ago. But when I powered down I could actually see they were still with me. Even if much reduced. I knew it was time to have a bit of a chat with myself. And not with the technology. Which had also succeeded in locking me out of my bank account. But with that part of me that still expects life to be hard or difficult. The bit that thinks things will go wrong.

And struggles to trust enough. That is the reason I was powered down. To notice my self-sabotage. And to get me deal with it. I’m sure it will all sort itself out. My technology will do what is necessary for me whilst I am away from the charging plug. And tomorrow will be a great day!

Blah, Offline, Downtime: There Are Days Like This

blahIt’s been a blah day. I’ve been feeling slightly out of sorts. My intuition has been offline too. And my head is certainly ready for some downtime. I have been able to do what I’ve needed too. However, my head has felt like it was somewhere else. And my body has wanted to curl up and rest.

Feeling blah can be a bit of an issue when I have appointments booked. Do I cancel the catch up with friends? Or my Reiki treatment? Should I turn away the distressed lady who has questions about her loved ones that need answers? And what about getting the car MOT’d. It happened to be the last day of the previous MOT so not a lot of choice with that. As always, what I did was carry on with my commitments. My Guides have a way of organising things if I’m really not meant to be working. They also have a wonderful way of stepping in and making sure I have a lovely flow of positive healing energy with me all the time.

Because blah days always crop up. It’s no different for mediums or psychics than for anyone else. Although I might get a warning that I’m going offline or that it’s going to be a downtime day. I still have to take the time out when it happens. Or I have to do the things that are necessary. And that is where my Guides will help me out. But I also know all our Guides will help anyone out. All that is required is permission. I have to ask for the helpful energy because it’s a matter of free will. My Guides can’t act if I don’t want them to. Today I asked. As I do every blah day. In my head I call for help. Or shout if necessary. Then I step back and let them send me what I need. I also use my Reiki to self-heal too. That way I am taking positive action and so are my Guides. Together we work to get me through my day.

So now I’m writing my blog. The last action of my blah day. I hope to wake up a whole lot more connected, grounded and well tomorrow. Because one blah day is enough for me at the moment!

Shutting Up Internal Chatter: Listening For Guides

shutting up chatterIt must be a necessary theme this week – working with Guides. Yesterday I wrote about my latest new Guide and today I’ve been chatting to several people about the way I work with mine. Explaining that our connection couldn’t get off the ground until I learned about shutting up my internal chatter.

As a human being I have learned to keep my mind active. Not necessarily by choice. But because I have always been expected to process lots of information. Firstly by my Ego Mind so that I can keep myself out of danger and stay alive as long as possible. The chatter that flows through in my thoughts has a big chunk of assumptions, options and debates about what to do for the best. Not only about crossing a road or driving. But also how much my gas bill is, the price of food and if that person really did mean to be nasty to me. The Ego Mind is expecting uncertainty and attack. Shutting it down completely is hard because I want to stay safe too. So it gently rumbles on yacking at me all the time.

Also chatting away are my feelings. Who said what, when and why. Debating if I feel hurt, proud, upset or angry. Linking what has been said to things in my past and dredging up old feelings. Chattering about assumptions of what is going to happen in the future if I have to speak to that person again. Going round and round judgements, conversation points and individual words. Constructing my answers for next time. Or the things I really wished I had said. I play these over and over again in the safety of my internal world hoping that I can deny them or reinvent them to sound more positive to me. Using up lots of energy keeping myself in the past rather than accepting the conversations and moving on. And all because humans don’t show each other how to deal with feelings immediately.

Shutting up chatter therefore becomes a lot more complicated as I fall into all of these internal dialogues. Swapping Ego Mind with feelings endlessly. So how can my Guides break through that noise?

It’s important to acknowledge that my Guides communicate with my Intuitive Mind. The part of me that processes the information from my intuitive senses. It’s a part of me that has been pushed into he background. I’ve been trained to believe that I actually don’t have intuitive senses. So how can the information break through if I’m not even paying attention? My Intuitive Mind is chattering very quietly to itself. Gradually shutting down the information coming in because all the other chatter is drowning it out. Until it’s almost silent. I’ve even forgotten that it’s there. Unless I get a random prediction right. Or have a moment of deja vu that wobbles my certainty in the material world. Even denying that I might have seen a non-physical being.

So here I am with far too much chatter going on in my head. Yet the voices or connections I want to experience are shutting up. In my experience the only way to deal with this was to start closing down the chatter and opening my intuition. I began with learning to meditate. Letting myself turn down the volume on my Ego and feelings. But turning up the volume on my intuitive senses. I also learned to sit very quietly so that the chatter could calm down, slow down and fade a bit. Music for relaxation helped me too. I started to write my questions down and let myself answer them. I paid attention to any thoughts and feeling I had that seemed not to be mine. And I kept asking for more. telling my Guides to give me the information again.

With a lot of practice I gradually learned how effective shutting down the chatter could be. Because I had a space in my head where other impressions, thoughts and feelings could emerge. It took me some time to trust that this was my Guides communicating with me. Yet when I finally accepted it was my mind chatter became a wonderful, purposeful conversation instead. Is it time for you to stop chattering and start listening?

Telling It Like It Is – Being Clear What’s Involved

telling truthThere are times when I get quite frustrated with the world. Days when everyone seems to have an agenda. But they won’t put it into what they are saying. I much prefer telling it like it is. Then everyone can be clear what is involved and make their choices based on as much info as possible.

I recently signed up to something which was presented as a charitable event. I try to support charities when I can because there are so many causes that struggle to get funding. This one seemed like a really good idea. I was excited too because it was to do something that would challenge me. After several ‘welcome’ type texts there were a few questions I still needed answering. Especially about dates and times that I would have to commit to. I asked several times for the information. Disappointingly I didn’t get answers. Until I spoke to someone else. Then I found out that there were some hidden costs not included in the original blurb. And deadlines I couldn’t meet. It certainly wasn’t telling it like it is.

It got me thinking about this habit we have. One I’ve been guilty of in the past. Telling the story with the spin I want on it. Keeping back the bits I want to hide. And letting someone believe that what they have been told is the whole picture. When I started working with my Guides they were very picky about the way I had to pass on messages. They insisted that I had to share only what they gave me. Because my opinions, judgements or assumptions would hide the truth of the words the Spirits wanted to say. Because, in the end, when someone isn’t clear it all falls apart anyway. Like my hoped for charitable experience. I have withdrawn because I had only been given half of the story.

There was too much else involved. Things that the organisers weren’t telling anyone. Things that made it impossible for me. It’s a good reminder to me. I now try my best to be straightforward in all I say. But I’m not perfect so sometimes I miss little bits out. However, I have no agenda when working for Spirit. I do what they ask of me, when they ask it of me. And I do my very best to bring that approach into everything I say in my everyday life. Telling things straight is the spiritual way. I’m glad I finally learned that lesson.

Day 846 of my blogging challenge

Preparation – Getting Ready To Speak For Spirit

preparationIt’s been a snowy evening so I’ve been glad to sit and do my preparation for a Mind, Body and Spirit event tomorrow. My Guides tell me I will be able to get there. And I’m really glad because I am doing a talk on one of my passions. Past Lives.

I’m actually going because I want to show people my new book – Down 2 Earth: My Intuitive World. I’m very proud to have written it and am delighted that it’s getting good reviews. I have also taken the opportunity to do a talk about Past Lives. Because I am sure they will feature in a book soon. And, of course, they are the topic that first really challenged my understanding of my world. Although it took me many more years to learn to speak for Spirit. The preparation I got from learning about past lives helped me be open. Open to many ideas about the energy world and intuition. Even if I remind a sceptic for a long time.

It’s that preparation that made it much easier for me to accept that the Guides who stepped forward were actually there. And made it much less of a fight when the Energy Beings asked me to start telling people what they were saying to me. The work I had done, and the research about past lives, gave me a sense of connection to a greater whole. This connection became much clearer as I explored my own past lives. I began to think of time as fluid rather than static. When I also realised that the Guides could show me the past lives of other people I knew I had to give that information out. Eventually my Guides, with plenty of preparation, got me to run workshops so I could help others start their journey too.

Tomorrow is another chance to get people into preparation for accessing their past lives. Then clearing the energy the lives still push into this life. And, who knows, to help the people who come along to start their own speaking for Spirit. So, my CD’s of the meditation are ready, my books are packed and my car is outside gathering snow. It’s New Moon too so bring on the flow of wonderful energy!

Day 842 of my blogging challenge

Creating Space For Spirit Communication

creating spaceI’ve often talked and written about letting my Guides have time to speak to me. Or how to provide a moment to listen into what they want to say. One of the ways in which I work with them is by creating a space when we can talk to each other. I call it a Home Circle. First because it’s done in my home. And second because it’s with a circle of friends.

The term Home Circle isn’t unique to me though. Far from it. It goes back to the beginnings of the Spiritualist Movement and even before then. Home circles were used by religious groups to share, discuss and understand the teachings of their faith. And, I’m sure, before that in all sorts of communities where knowledge needed to be shared, talked through and agreed upon. Creating a home circle to include the Spirit and Energy Beings is therefore an entirely natural part of the way we human beings get ourselves organised. But because it can sound a bit secretive many people don’t even think about getting together with friends this way.

Yet I love creating this kind of space. Inviting people who I enjoy sharing time with. Having a cuppa and relaxing. Then all of us sitting quietly to see what we experience. And sharing during and after the connection with our Guides and the Spirit people. I enjoy hearing what other people have picked up. There is often a good discussion about what it all might mean. And an opportunity for me and everyone else to learn new ways of connecting with our Guides. I like to keep the time to one hour of sitting quietly. Not because we couldn’t do longer. But because it helps all of us focus enough on what is coming in without drifting into our Ego Minds or physical needs.

There are times when our circle is more active, less still and quiet, blasted by laughter too. I appreciate all of these moods. But it is the quiet that I appreciate the most. Because in the stillness even the most subtle or small of signals gets through. The stillness of a home circle and the creative ways in which the space is used by our Guides is wonderful to experience.
