While I absolutely love and cherish my job, exposing myself to the psychic universe around the clock can be tough, especially once spirits get involved.
I visited an amazing antique shop with my significant other. We were having a beautiful afternoon, it was snowing, we got a few cafe au laits from a new coffee shop, and we were exploring our neighborhood.
When he suggested going into this antique shop and I was more than excited - I love old furniture, I love old houses, and I grew up in an old Victorian home, which I now remember fondly.
The store was several stories tall, and as we walked up the stairs to the second floor, things began to change.
Suddenly, I got very cold, tingly, and my heart rate began to drop.
I knew what this meant - there was a Spirit somewhere.
A spirit wanting my attention. What had gone from a romantic snow day had turned into a paranormal T.V. show.
I’d completely forgotten to put up my 'tune it out' boundaries before leaving the house, and I was caught totally off guard. I was off-duty, and I didn’t want to be on-duty. I just wanted to shop!
Even though I was with someone that I cared deeply about and who very well knew my profession, I see things that others don’t.
It can be hard for others to be empathetic or even understanding when your experience differs from theirs.
And sometime in my early teens, I began to realized that not everyone was like me, and, in order to try and fit in, I began my plight to make it stop.
Along the way, I also learned a few techniques to help others keep calm and carry on in any situation involving a Spirit.
Are you in need of help managing intuitive gifts in your day to day life? Are you struggling with turning it down? Simply trying to keep your cool when ‘something happens’ and you’re surrounded by people who may not understand?
What follows below is a few things that have really helped me live more peacefully, in everyday life.
My 3 Best Tips for Managing Spiritual Abilities
take a Deep Breath. . .remind yourself spirits are Just People
For the most part, if you are sensing or picking up on an energy in the room - whether it is a perception from another living person, or the essence of someone on the other side, you are interacting with a person. Alive, not alive, crossed over, not crossed over, earthbound, not earthbound, negative energy, positive energy - it’s all people.
Take a deep breath, because you too, are a person. There, now you have something in common. They're like you.
You don’t have to engage, deliver information, find out what the mystery is, or do anything at all. A friendly smile is all that is needed. No need to uncover a mystery or open a can of drama. Most of the time, they aren’t even asking for that.
1, 2, 3. . . Turn down it down.
To decrease your overall sensitivity, you can turn down your abilities.
Close your eyes and imagine the volume knob on a radio with up and down buttons.
Imagine yourself turning down the knob to off.
Turning down the volume, lowering the heat.
Count backwards down from 10, and go as low as you can on the knob.
As you do this, tell yourself this is the knob of your psychic abilities, and you are turning them down.
go Create a Boundary
If you have psychic mediumship gifts, you might be running around with no veil.
A veil is the energetic barrier between the human physical realm and the realm of Spirit and the Divine Consciousness.
Basically, everything psychic. Thus, if you are like me, you likely lack a veil of protection between you and the psychic world, and you have to re-create one.
to create a psychic boundary in a time of need:
Close your eyes.
Imagine light above you, shining down from the sky. This light is white, and as it shines down from above, it completely surrounds you on all sides, above your head, below your feet, in front of you, behind you.
You are surrounded by a bubble of white light.
Imagine the light bubble getting bigger and bigger.
Open your eyes when ready.
These are just a few every-day management tips for dealing with your psychic/spiritual gifts.
