Psychic Circle Will Bring Spirit ’round
Dear Bonnie: Can you tell me what a psychic message circle is and who should learn to build their abilities? As a small child, I psychically saw spirit with my eyes but would become frightened and ended up pushing the visions away. Can I bring back these visions now that I am older? -- Crystal
Dear Crystal: I have clients who come in almost daily telling me the same thing, telling me about the times they have experienced visions or voices, or had a premonition but didn’t know what to do with these experiences and became frightened, hence pushing their sixth sense away. Since the age of 4, I have seen spirit, sometimes walking around in my family home or at night in my dream time. I couldn’t sleep unless I had a light on in my room until the age of 14 because I could sense spirit all around me. I would leave my bedroom door open, hoping to hear my dad snoring two doors down in his room; this always seemed to comfort me.
The only difference that I had as a child was that my mom could see, hear and feel also, and when spirit was visiting, my mom could see what I was seeing, and she would say, “Oh, that’s just so-and-so.” Maybe they were one of my guides or a relative who had passed. She said it so nonchalantly that I thought everyone was seeing spirit walking around. The daytime was a piece of cake, but nighttime still a little scary. I never liked dolls as a child, so I didn’t have many, but there were times I would get them as presents. At night, I would put them in my mom and dad’s room because I would swear they could get up, open their eyes and start walking around. I guess I figured my mom and dad were the spirit police. This still makes me laugh because the scene I am describing became a movie when I was in high school -- someone else was thinking or seeing this also.
Spirit absolutely can use anything they need to get through with a message, but my mom always told me, “It’s not the dead you need to be afraid of, it’s the living!” As I grew older and started school, I learned that you didn’t talk about seeing spirit to your classmates. Spirit communication comes easier to us until the age of 7, when our antilocal brain takes over as we start school. Mine didn’t go away because at home I could talk freely about what I was being shown. It was a blessing to be born into a spiritual family that talked about spirit openly.
Everyone is born with psychic ability, but if it is not used, it can become dormant. It’s like a muscle: You can build them up, but if you no longer use them, they can become weak.
Psychic message circles are for anyone wishing to build their connection to spirit in a safe atmosphere where everyone wants to do the same. When you learn how to open up your psychic centers and use your intuition, it makes life’s decisions a little easier. Some students come to circle knowing they want to use their intuition for guidance, and others wish to make the connection to the spirit world.
I cannot speak for other teachers, only myself, but my classes are always given to help us feel that connection so that we know we are never alone and are very much being guided on our journey. It’s incredible to be able to tap into that feeling of knowing we are never left alone on our path, but that help is always there if we ask.
Some students do have advanced abilities and still want to build on what they see, hear and feel to help themselves and others. It’s very healing for both parties to be able to share advice or a message from the spirit world and the divine. Everyone has these psychic centers, and a great way to build your psychic ability is to attend a class or circle. It’s never too late to start.
