Psychic Fran’s quick guide to communicating with the spirit world
Mediumship is a gift from the universe to help us understand that we are first and foremost spirit in a physical body, and that when we die our spirit lives on in another dimension – the spirit world. Mediumship has changed over the years, so here is my quick 7-point guide to help unravel the mystery behind our work.
Back in the 1800’s, illegal séances were held in private homes throughout the country. The medium would go into a trance allowing spirit to move into their aura and take control of their conscious mind and speech. This is known as deep trance.
Deep trance is usually carried out in the dark with just a red light shining onto the medium, enabling the other sitters to see any overshadowing of the medium by the spirit communicator, creating the phenomena of transfiguration.
During these trance demonstrations, voices of loved ones would often be clearly heard and recognised by those present and this was known as direct voice. The medium would often be gagged to prevent them from speaking and many thought this practice was the work of fraudsters, trying for many years to discredit it. However much information proved to be very accurate, especially during the war when servicemen came through giving information on disasters that had happened, but had not yet been released to the press.
The communicator still steps into the medium’s aura but does not take total control, so it is more of a mental process. There are three main ways that a medium may work today:
When the medium feels spirit around them, giving a sense of knowing what the communicator wishes to convey.
Sometimes called ‘clear hearing’, where mediums hear spirit speaking to them, enabling them to convey messages word for word.
Meaning ‘clear seeing’, the medium is shown pictures in their mind that will convey situations around the person seeking help and guidance, or where the spirit person will show themselves to the medium so that an accurate description can be given.
There are many ways to communicate with spirit and all mediums have their own way of working with the spirit world, Some will use just one method and others may use all of the above or a selection. To find out more visit psychiclight.com/psychics/psychic_fran or use PIN 1133
Spiritualist medium Mariah shares how we all have psychic abilities, we just need to nurture them. Do this easy meditation below, and you too could communicate with the other side.
Everyone can communicate with spirit
We are made of the same atoms as the stars, we are all connected as part of the universe. You could say that we ARE stardust.Some of us are born with a type of perception and the kind of heightened senses which allow us to pick up phenomena others may not see. However, we do not have to believe in order to have these experiences. They will continue regardless. I can testify to this. However, for those of you not born with this ability, it is possible to learn, and to experience the gifts of communicating with spirit. You just need to open your doors of perception.
All you need to succeed is the desire, the time, the patience and dedication!
Firstly, you need to understand and develop your senses, through meditation. During meditation, your senses and skills will be enhanced. If you focus on producing images in your mind’s eye to connect to the spirit world, spirit will give images, symbols and colours to get their messages through in the form of telepathy. Start with learning to understand what the spirit is giving you through the senses you already have – seeing, hearing, sensing, feeling, then just knowing – or your gut instinct. Time to get started!
To start communicating with the spirit world, try this:
Find a quiet time and place.
Start with relaxation and an opening prayer, a thought to spirit and a request to your guides to protect you.
Ask for a loved one, so you know who your communicator is.
The key is complete relaxation, of body and mind, so that you are in the best place to see, hear, feel, and know that there is an energy with you, which is outside of yourself, connecting to you.
Now let spirit do the work, let them give you what they need to. Wait for it to be given. Stop your own mind from filling in the gaps. Once you have mastered this part you can move on to asking questions.
If you start feeling a physical symptom or a sensation which you know not to be your own, then you know spirit is working with you.
Now look out for the clues
A song playing on the radio, the aroma of a favourite perfume, tobacco, or even a food associated with the loved one, a white feather, a butterfly out of season or a bird coming close, finding small coins with significant dates, photographs appearing in the house, small items belonging to a loved one vanishing, then reappearing. These are all ways spirit let you know they are with you, or signs that a loved one is in your atmosphere.
If you feel the connection, it is real. Trust your feelings and know that love does not die with the physical body, but that spirit surrounds you every day and you are loved for all eternity. Nothing leaves the universe, it merely changes form. So don’t forget, you are a star. Literally!
