I have a hard time sleeping at hotels.
In fact, I almost never sleep in them.
Not because I have a hard time sleeping in new places - I don’t. Generally, I can fall asleep almost anywhere. It’s more because when I sleep in a new place, especially a friend’s house or an extended family member’s house, there are new Spirits present.
New Spirits - new to me, possibly old to the area - who don’t know my boundaries or the rules I’ve set up for communicating with the Spirit World.
New Spirits, who also can clearly see I’m a medium. If you have the ability to see, hear, feel, sense or even pick up on a deceased person, Angel, Spirit Guide or anything else both intelligent and unseen . . .they already know about it.
Mediums or spirit sensitives have a certain energetic glow around their spiritual body that is different from all the rest. This glow, which often looks like a light channel coming down from above, that can be seen by all of those who have Spiritual eyes.
To the Spirit World, this often looks like a Light Bulb in the middle of an otherwise dark room.
Which is why when you are learning to connect with Spirit, it helps to create boundaries and guidelines as to how those in Spirit are meant to connect with you. Once you review and write out your boundaries, place them on your fridge, recite them over and over again out loud and addressing any Spirit who is present - demanding they follow them - most people, most Spirits, being respectful individuals, usually do follow them.
Except when there are newbies involved.
Newbie spirits, they don’t know what your rules are.
If you are staying at a friends house, at a hotel or simply having guests over (who will likely bring their own Spirits along), and you can’t sleep - try telling the Spirits to leave your space. Firmly and loudly. Don’t make it an option.
Also don’t be phased. In my Spiritual Security eBook, we talk about how giving energy to that which you’d not like to continue will have the reverse effect, therefore, appearing as unamused as possible will actually help deflate interactions more quickly.
Spirit activity often increases when we aren’t in our own comfort zone, not because there are more Spirits present or someone else’s home is more paranormally active than your own, but because those in Spirit are in the new environment and they may not be aware of the unspoken or spoken preferences you have for being interacted with - so they will do whatever they normally do and whatever they want to do - unless you tell them otherwise.
In your own home, it’s likely that your own Guides, Angels and deceased Loved Ones know what is allowed and what is not allowed and follow those guidelines accordingly. But not so, in a new space or with new people, and their new Spirits, in your space.
Spirits in new spaces often don’t know your boundaries so you may need to tell them what they are and if you see a rise in spiritual activity when you are:
Sleeping at a friend’s house
Staying the night with a family member
Having friends or family over at your house
At a hotel, motel or bed and breakfast
This is possibly why. You can avoid sleeping anywhere other than your own bed for the rest of your life and never have overnight guests over.
Or before you have guests over, enter your hotel room, or knock on your friend’s front door - you can restate your boundaries, firmly, yet quietly within your mind or out loud into the space around you - so all of the friends, family and guests unseen will know how to respect and honor you, as a guest in their home - or they, a guest in yours.
