We are all psychic. Whether you realize it or not, you have psychic abilities. Some call it intuition. Others call it a gut instinct. Whatever you personally want to call it, you do have this ability.
We all have spirits around us. Our loved ones who have crossed over come to visit us. Some of you out there have ghosts in your homes. And though it can seem scary, you do have the ability to talk to spirits.
It takes a lot of practice, especially if you are not used to it. But you can do it. Find a nice and quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Make yourself comfortable and take three or four deep breaths. You have to be in a safe place where nothing will bother you. If you can’t focus, you won’t be able to connect.
First you must ground yourself. You need to relax and clear your mind of all the stress and clutter in your life. Second, focus on the spirit you want to talk to. Make it clear in your mind that you ONLY want to talk to certain spirits. If you are a person of faith, ask to be protected as you contact the other side. That way no stray ghosts or other entities can come bother you.
As you concentrate on a specific spirit, try to picture that spirit. If it is your mother who has crossed over, remember how she used to look. Maybe you are trying to talk to your dog that died last year. Picture your furry friend in your mind. Perhaps you lost a child, and of course, you will never forget how your son or daughter looked. Whether it is a person or a pet, you can contact either one. Try to hold a picture in your mind as you relax and focus on that spirit.
Keep these images in you thoughts, relax, and ask to speak to your spirit. Don’t get upset if you don’t get results right away. It may take you a while to figure out how spirits are communicating with you. If your grief is too much, it may block your ability to communicate. So don’t give up. It may take a long time to get through.
Sometimes when you ask your spirit a question, an answer will pop in your mind. Yes, this answer is coming from your loved one. You can ask several questions, but what you will find is that you get tired quickly when focusing on getting an answer. That is because spirit is using your energy to talk to you. So be careful not to do too much at once. Naturally you can do this every day if you wish. The more you do it, the better you become. But don’t panic if you find yourself getting really tired while doing this.
**As a warning I should tell you that if you think spirits are commanding you to hurt yourself or others, this is not spirit contact. This is mental illness or a medical problem, and you should seek professional help for this right away.
However if your contact is more pleasant, then you know that you have something real. Your loved ones would never hurt you or do things to scare you!
While some people can get answers using this method, other times, nothing SEEMS to come through. In that case, your spirit may talk to you in another way. You may begin to see signs. If you mom loved blue jays, all of a sudden you will see blue jays. If your pet used to run down the stairs, you may hear that sound all over again. You could hear your child’s laughter. Children who have crossed over make a special effort to come to their parents when their parents are really suffering.
If you pay really close attention, you will start to see signs, things that meant something to your loved one. If you are not careful, you can easily miss these signs. You must watch for them. But I promise you, if you ask your spirit for these signs, your loved one will give them to you. They love you and want to make you happy.
There are other ways to communicate with spirits. There are spirit boxes and other mechanical methods. Some use spirit knocks (asking the spirit to knock once for yes and twice for no). And clever researchers are always coming up with new ways to get through to the other side. But the truth is that you don’t really need a device to talk to spirits, especially your loved ones. They will come to you in dreams and do their best to answer you in your mind or send you signs.
This doesn’t mean that ghost detectors don’t have their place in contacting spirits. It just means that for me, I prefer using psychic ability. And for my dear readers, I recommend using your own thoughts to contact spirit because it doesn’t cost you anything!!!
Keep the faith and keep trying. You will get through if you really seek to find a spirit. If your heart is sincere, they will come to you.
Have a wonderful spirit day!
