Spirit Guides: Who Are They And How Can They Help You?

It may be a comforting thought to know there is a specialist team of spiritual helpers around you right now. These helpers, also known as Spirit Guides, have been by your side since birth and will continue to be with you throughout your entire life. Of course there is a whole network of spiritual beings such as Guardian Angels and Archangels, supporting, protecting and guiding you every day so it’s important to distinguish Spirit Guides from these other loving entities.

The main difference is Spirit Guides once walked the Earth as humans, giving them a unique perspective on the hopes, dreams and behaviors of humankind. Although they passed into the spirit realm many hundreds or thousands of years ago they have evolved to such a high degree that they are gifted with the opportunity to help those of us on the earthly plane. They undergo special spiritual training in the afterlife to help them in their work. Always remember that your Spirit Guide will never interfere with your free will or make you do something that feels wrong or unnatural. Instead they offer unconditional love, support, protection and warnings.

The idea of living previous lives may be a difficult one to grasp but reincarnation is fundamental when it comes to your own spiritual growth and development. Each reincarnation offers teachings and lessons that help you progress toward your soul’s true purpose. Sadly these lessons are often ignored leading to negative patterns of behavior being repeated over lifetimes. Once the lesson is learned and that particular cycle is broken, spiritual growth and ultimately enlightenment will occur.

Many people ask whether recently passed loved ones can be Spirit Guides and the answer is no. Although loved ones will always be watching over you this is very different from the specialized support of your spiritual helper. As amazing as it seems, you have already met your Spirit Guide! Before reincarnating into your current life you will have chosen your main guide based on your soul’s purpose and what you need to learn in this lifetime. For example if healing work is what you are destined to do then your guide may have been a Native American medicine man or a Celtic wise woman in a previous life. It is their job to keep you on the right path although whether you listen and accept their guidance is a different matter.

Bear in mind that in any given moment there will be more than one Spirit Guide working with you. While your main guide shines a light on your spiritual path throughout your life, other guides will come and go assisting you with a variety of things. Some may only be with you for as little as a few hours. Whether you believe in them or not your special team of guides are always there for you, offering support and giving you the courage to take action when needed.

How do you know if your Spirit Guide is communicating with you? It’s simply a case of listening to and trusting your intuition. Don’t ignore those feelings if you sense something is wrong. Likewise if you get a flash of inspiration, go with it! In some cases people have been able to communicate with their Spirit Guides, even learning their names and discovering how they were connected in a past life. This will take time and practice but the stronger your connection with your Spirit Guide, the more clearly you will hear their messages.

 

Happy Halloween!

Halloween had its beginnings in an ancient, pre-Christian Celtic festival of the dead. The Celtic peoples, who were once found all over Europe, divided the year by four major holidays. According to their calendar, the year began on a day corresponding to November 1st on our present calendar. The date marked the beginning of winter. Since they were pastoral people, it was a time when cattle and sheep had to be moved to closer pastures and all livestock had to be secured for the winter months. Crops were harvested and stored. The date marked both an ending and a beginning in an eternal cycle.

5 Tips To Help You Develop Your Psychic Abilities

All of us are born with psychic abilities. Some people naturally have a clearer connection with the ethereal realms while others have to work harder at strengthening this connection. Sadly society hasn’t made it easy. Continued frowning on anything deemed psychic or paranormal has led many people to disbelieve or lose faith in their own unique spiritual gifts. However it’s not too late to tune into and hone your psychic skills. Expanding your psychic potential will give you deeper insight into challenges as well as provide a fresh new perspective on whatever you may be facing.

The first real step is acceptance and belief. Being open to and acknowledging your natural born psychic abilities will play a huge role in making them stronger. This can be a tricky step though. If you have regularly ignored gut feelings then ‘hearing’ your inner guide may be a struggle at first. Perhaps family and friends haven’t been supportive about your interests in this area and subconsciously you’ve dismissed the reality of psychic phenomena. Over time, this will have had a detrimental affect on your abilities. Look for local groups or Spiritualist churches where you can meet like-minded and supportive people. Start doing research and reading positive books about the subject. As you build up an understanding of psychic abilities, your knowledge and confidence will increase and silence any voice of doubt.

Regular meditation is essential. It is a simple yet incredibly powerful tool. Most professional psychic advisors engage in a daily meditation practice as it calms the mind and brings clarity of thought. Don’t panic just yet! Meditation doesn’t have to involve sitting crossed legged on the floor for 3-hours in total silence. What’s important is being able to relax. Listening to soothing music, staring at a candle flame or even a gentle walk in nature are all effective forms of meditation. The most important thing is being able to quiet your mind so you can connect with your higher self. As you relax you will enter a state of ‘knowingness’ where universal energy flows freely. Messages and insight may come to you in the form of thoughts, feelings or visions. Trust what you receive. The more you meditate the easier it will be to connect with your higher consciousness.

One of the best ways to hone your extrasensory skills is to listen to your intuition. You may feel uneasy around someone or get an inner chill when visiting a particular spot. Perhaps you feel an urge to read a certain book or visit a café on a specific date. None of these feelings may make sense to you but they happen for a reason. Don’t dismiss them. Your intuition is the fastest and most reliable way for your higher self to relay important messages to you. Whether its goose bumps, knots in your stomach, a voice in your head or a strong sense of excitement and anticipation – always trust your gut feelings. The more you listen to your inner voice the louder and clearer it will become.

Psychic tools, such as Tarot Cards, Runes, Crystals and Pendulums are a great way of focusing energy and intention. They help open your mind and expand your vision creating a clear pathway to Spirit and your higher consciousness. It really doesn’t matter what tools you choose to work with as long as you feel comfortable with them. Dreams are an important psychic tool and as you continue your practice you may find they become much more vivid.  Keeping a dream journal and making notes of your experiments using different psychic tools is a great way to chart your progress.

Above all have patience. Think of your psychic abilities as a muscle that needs to be warmed up and stretched. If you’ve never been to the gym before you wouldn’t expect to immediately life the heaviest weight. The more you use and trust in your psychic gifts the stronger they will become. By investing time in regular practice you will soon start to see the benefits. Remember you were born with psychic gifts and they are a beautiful and natural part of who you are.

Interpret this Dream

In my dream I was at my middle school, I was in the school gym with all my classmates, it was a regular school day. I went outside to look around and out of no-where zombies began falling out of the sky.

I panicked and went back inside. I was too much in shock to warn anybody so I closed the doors and held them shut tight with all my strength. I was trying and stop the zombies from getting in. While doing so, nobody in the gym had noticed anything yet.

When I couldn’t hold the doors shut any longer I let go and ran as fast as I could to the exit. As I reached the exit, I saw everyone else going crazy as the zombies came in.

When I got out of the doors I saw everyone in school run for their lives out of school too. I saw the shortest way and as soon I got out, I saw everyone run for it and catch up with me but the zombies were right on our tails.

It’s a long story, this is only part of it but I woke up in fear because it seemed so real.

Psychic Claims That Steve Jobs Isn’t Having a Nice Afterlife

via Time Magazine

Barely a year after Steve Jobs passed away, a psychic is claiming that she’s in contact with the co-founder of Apple, and that all is apparently not rosy.

Reverend Betsy Cohen — named one of “New York’s top 10 psychics” by the extremely unscientific website of pyschic Cynthia Becker — sat down recently with Vice magazine’s Motherboard tech site in an attempt to get in touch with the deceased tech mogul’s spirit.

The results were, er, illuminating. The good news for Jobs is that he’s “not in hell.” The not so good news? Cohen said “he’s had to do a lot of reviewing of his life. Right now he knows the lesson he has to learn, but he hasn’t learned it yet.” Even more worrisome for Jobs is that “he’s trying to get out of this man-made hell that he’s in,” which makes it sound slightly as if he’s been reincarnated as a Foxconn employee.

So far, so confusing. Cohen continues, stating that when she first managed to touch base with Jobs, she’d had “a rough couple of days.” Cohen said she felt that Jobs was a “very critical spirit,” and had they worked together when he was still on this mortal coil, she would likely have ended up “crying every day.” Considering that Jobs’s no-nonsense approach in the workplace was extremely well documented, you’ll forgive us for not exactly finding this to be the most startling of revelations.

Far better is her comment that there are “teachers” and “guides” in the afterlife, who are attempting to teach Jobs that “survival of the fittest doesn’t actually exist, it’s a made up thing.” Sounds like Jobs wasn’t the only one who’s thinking different.

 

Are You Cursed or Is it Bad Karma?

Are Things Going Wrong for a Reason?

Believing in curses or being under a dark cloud/having bad karma makes life easier. After all, it implies that we have absolutely no control over what happens to us and that anything bad or negative came from an outside source that we are equally as powerless over.

Personally, I don’t believe in curses, bad omens or karma. No, I do not believe that any current struggles are caused by something I did 10 lifetimes ago. And because I don’t buy into it, it doesn’t create more of it!

I believe that my mind creates my reality. My life circumstances are almost always in direct correlation to the headspace I am in. When I look back at miserable times as an adult, I can tell you exactly how my actions contributed to, or made them happen. So yes, we do create reality. We usually do create our circumstances and our possibilities or lack thereof.

Is There A Difference Between A Medium, Psychic, And Tarot Reader?

Looking for an expert in the psychic world can be an overwhelming experience. It’s especially difficult if you’re going through a tough time and just want a reading but don’t know what type of advisor to speak with. Take a look at any company offering psychic services and no doubt you will see Mediums, Psychics and Tarot card readers all willing to provide you with support and guidance. Is there really a difference between them and the types of readings they offer?

Mediums often work platform in Spiritualist churches or other venues where groups of people can gather. Due to the highly emotional nature of their work many also offer private one-to-one sessions. Although most are gifted psychics they will not include predictions or information on future events in their readings. A medium is a channel between the earthly plane and the spirit world and their gift is to share messages from loved ones who have passed over. In doing so they offer comfort and reassurance to those who have experienced loss and give proof that ‘life’ continues beyond our earthly existence.

If you want to receive a message from someone in the spirit world remember that a medium is not able to call forth a particular person. They are only ever able to communicate with the spirits who approach them. This can be frustrating especially if you really wanted a message from a beloved Great Aunt. However it may be that your Grandfather is the one with a meaningful message for you. Keep an open mind and trust your loved ones are giving you the message you most need to hear.

In order to verify their connection with the spirit world mediums will offer information specific to a particular person. They may describe an aroma or scent, quote a familiar phrase or mention a favorite item of clothing or jewelry. This is important as it helps ensure the spirit’s message is shared with the right person. A medium can receive messages in a variety of ways including Clairaudience (hearing the voice of the spirit), Clairsentience (sensing or feeling the spirit) or Clairvoyancy (seeing the spirit).

Psychics possess highly developed intuitive skills and extra sensory perception. Unlike mediums they use these gifts to help predict future events. If you are looking for guidance about a particular problem then a psychic reading is a good way to get to the heart of the matter. Most psychics are Clairvoyant, Clairsentient or Clairaudient but many are proficient in at least two. No matter how the messages come through they will help shed light on your current situation and give guidance about the best steps to take to move forward. Some may even use psychic tools such as Tarot cards, Crystals, Runes or Pendulums to strengthen their insight. Occasionally a psychic may pick up on the spirit of a loved one during a reading. They may sense someone around you but this is very different to the heightened connection a medium has with the spirit world.

Most Tarot card readers are psychic and simply use the cards as a way to expand their vision. It is possible to read the cards without having any psychic ability but when combined with second sight a Tarot reading is extremely powerful. Skilled Tarot readers usually have a preferred deck and will have a variety of card spreads on hand for specific questions. Decorated with distinctive imagery each card has a unique meaning. When drawn from the deck upside down or grouped with other cards this meaning expands and the resulting spread reveals detailed information about your situation. How the cards are interpreted will vary between readers. Tarot readers have a thorough understanding of traditional meanings but over time they develop their own personal connections with each card. This gives each reading a personal touch and allows the reader to look even deeper into whatever may be troubling you.

5 Most Haunted Houses In America

via Total Mortgage Services

1. LaLaurie House, New Orleans, LA

Built in 1832 and owned by socialite Madame Delphine LaLaurie and her husband, Dr. Louis LaLaurie, the house was the reported setting for vicious cruelty against the couple’s slaves. In April, 1834, a fire broke out in the LaLaurie residence on Royal Street, starting in the kitchen. When the police and fire marshals got there, they found a seventy-year-old woman, the cook, chained to the stove by her ankle. She later confessed to them that she had set the fire as a suicide attempt for fear of her punishment, being taken to the uppermost room, because she said “Anyone who had been taken there, never came back.” As reported in the New Orleans Bee of April 11, 1834, bystanders responding to the fire attempted to enter the slave quarters. The bystanders broke down the doors to the slave quarters and found seven slaves in various states of mutilation – suspended by the neck, with their limbs apparently stretched and torn from one extremity to the other.

At one point actor Nicolas Cage owned the home, and while he said he never saw any ghosts, he too felt the curse of the home; losing the property to foreclosure in 2009.

 

2. Winchester House, San Jose, CA

The residence of Sarah Winchester, widow of gun magnate William Winchester, this house was under continuous construction from 1884 until Sarah’s death in 1922. The 38 years worth of round-the-clock construction cost an estimated $5.5 milllion (over $70 million today).  The result: a maze-like structure that includes twisting and turning hallways, dead ends, secret panels, a window built into a floor, staircases leading to nowhere, doors that open to walls, upside-down columns and rooms built, then intentionally closed off – all to ward off and confuse the spirits that had fallen to her husband’s invention.

3. 108 Ocean Drive, Amityville, NY

In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into 112 Ocean Avenue, a large Dutch Colonial house in Amityville, a suburban neighborhood located on the south shore of Long Island, New York. Thirteen months before the Lutzes moved in, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. had shot and killed six members of his family at the house. After 28 days, the Lutzes left the house, claiming to have been terrorized by paranormal phenomena while living there. In 1977 Jay Anson would publish a book based on the Lutz’ experience. Some of the paranormal activity mentioned in the book include swarms of flies in mid winter, levitation, vivid nightmares, and hidden rooms stained red.

The five bedroom Dutch Colonial was listed by Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.15 million in 2010.

4. Franklin Castle, Cleveland, OH

Franklin Castle through the years

Unlike the previous three haunted homes on this list, Franklin Castle actually looks the part. Built in 1865 for German immigrant Hannes Tiedemann, the castle saw the death’s of Tiedemann’s mother as well as four of his children within a three year period. The nature of the deaths gave rise to rumors of various crimes committed in the house by Tiedemann. The home is rumored to have a variety of hidden rooms and passages that were used for bootlegging during prohibition.

The gothic-style castle was sold in 2010 for $260,000 to Oh Dear! Productions. The company has plans to turn the property into a 3-family home.

5. The White House, Washington, DC

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might be the most famous address in the United States. It’s also reportedly home to a veritable who’s-who of ghostly spirits including Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, Abe Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, and a British soldier from the War of 1812. Lincoln has been the White House’s most social ghostly figure. Mrs. Coolidge reported seeing the ghost of Lincoln staring out of the Oval Office window on several occasions and a young clerk once claimed he saw Lincoln sitting on a bed pulling off his boots.
