There is a difference between when someone is in the same room as you and when that same someone, walks over to you, comes close to you and approaches you with the intention to communicate.
There is a time when Spirit is with you in the room and then there is a completely different time, when Spirit is with you, as close as can be, snuggled up to you and ready to communicate.
This post is about the second scenario - what happens when a spirit wants to communicate with you.
If you are a medium, spirit communicator, or even a spirit-communicator-by-surprise, there comes a time when those in Spirit may want to communicate with and through you.
When a Spirit crosses over, a human loses their physical body. There are many things that we gain from losing a physical body, from complete freedom from movement and time, to ability to go wherever we want whenever we want, there are also things, that we lose. You lose your voice box and you lose your ability to project your speech, the primary two methods that people use to communicate with others.
When a human dies, they lose the most commonly used and acknowledged tools of human communication. . . accessed through the vehicle of the physical body.
Thus, when a humans dies and their comfort tools of communication are lost, they have to learn new Spirit communication tools, and they do. But as a human still on earth (you) it can be harder to notice when their Spirit is present to communicate with you, especially when you aren’t actively looking for non-human body dominated communication techniques.
Imagine yourself as a living human standing at the kitchen sink. You may have been doing this very act just last night. In this kitchen, your back, while you face the sick, faces the door behind you. Your back is turned to the door and thus you cannot use your physical eyes to see, when a physical body someone comes in behind you.
Even with your back turned, can you tell when another human has walked in behind you?
Can you tell, approximately, how far away they are from you? Are they standing at the door frame or are they within 1 inch of your body, so close you can feel their breath on their neck?
The answers are yes, you can tell when someone has walked in and yes, you can tell how close they are to you.
We can all sense when another human is present, without seeing their physical body being present.
This is because you can sense the presence of another human Spirit. In fact, we all can.
As a social species and as a member of a live-child rearing society, our individual survival is dependent on the presence of at least one other human in our space, usually a mother caretaker. Thus, as children, starting as babies, we are attuned to be able to tell and sense the presence of someone who could care for us. We can generally always sense when we are with another, versus when we are alone (unless, of course, we are asleep or our attention is focused on something else, and we get startled).
This caring-human-Spirit sensing ability is not lost when that human Spirit suddenly has no physical body. Their energy, is still in tact, and they can still form a fairly dense cloud of energy, as they collect their now free-energy molecules together into a human shape. The energy of Spirit is the energy of Spirit regardless of the physical body exists or not.
You can Sense Spirit because you already sense Human. You’re an expert human senser already.
How do I know when a Spirit comes into my space, with the intention to communicate?
Human Spirits, deceased Loved Ones, when they want to communicate with you, they ‘link with your energy.
Basically this means they step into your personal space, your energy field, your comfort zone so that you may hear, see and sense what they sense. The collection of what you pick up when this happens contains what their message is to you.
As you can imagine, when someone comes into your comfort zone, it can feel uncomfortable.
When a Spirit links with your energy, you may feel:
Pressure on your body (a cue of the level of closeness their energy is to yours)
Pressure on your chest
You may have a difficult time breathing, or start to feel anxious. If you suddenly feel uncomfortable in your space, it may be, that someone, a Spirit has joined you in it.
These symptoms occur when a Spirit is stands next to you to communicate with you.
If this is the case, you can take it a step further and learn or try to communicate with them, finding out who they are and what they may want, or you can tell them to back up and move out of your comfort zone. You can always tell someone to get out of your personal space, even a Spirit-someone.
Can they get closer than next to you?
A Spirit can take the linking process one step further, by floating right into your body.
Spirits don’t have physical bodies and are therefore, they are not limited by this barrier to fully merging with you. They have loosely, packed more gaseous bodies, free from a container, in which they can travel through dense surfaces. Spirits can, if allowed, can actually step into your body to communicate.
This is a form of mediumship where rather that speaking to an external Spirit and passing those messages along to someone else, the Spirit steps into your body, and uses your body, your language and your gestures to communicate for itself.
Why would a Spirit want to step into my body to communicate, when they can just stand next to me ?
Think of your body as a vehicle.
When each and every human Spirit comes onto earth they are given a vehicle to travel around with.
This vehicle takes them to destinations, can be steered in various directions and can be used as a tool to move yourself to whenever you want to be. However, when human Spirits depart earth, they have to leave their vehicle behind. This was a tool for the physical world only. This vehicle is the physical body.
Some Spirits get so used to and comfortable with using their physical world vehicle to get around, that when they die, rather than learning how to get into the backseat of a vehicle and giving directions to new chauffeur on where they want to go and what they want to do for the time being, they open the car to the vehicle and take over the wheel. They say, give me the wheel, I’ll drive!
It’s easier for them.
Imagine, if you have been driving somewhere, all day, everyday, to the same place to do the same thing, you might find it easier just to drive for yourself, than to tell someone else the directions to drive you there.
When a Spirit is jumps into your body to speak for themselves through you. When this happens, you may notice yourself:
Saying things you would not normally say
Being driven to speak on things out of turn or with odd accents
Having different body language movements or gestures
You may begin to feel animated, as though you have double the amount of energy you had before (you do) or you may just simply start feeling suddenly not like yourself. You may feel tightness or energy increasing in your chest and throat (a sign your voice box is being opened for communication).
This often happens with those in Spirit have recently crossed over and have not yet learned the techniques, tricks and tools of communicating as a Spirit.
Many of those in Spirit, will simply attempt to communicate with you in the best way they know how, whether it is by standing by your side and showing, sharing and sending you information in a spiritual conversation, or whether it is simply stepping into your vehicle to do their own form of communicating. In either case, you have a choice.
You can always choose with whom you communicate, when and how by setting your boundaries, learning their style of communication, beginning to keep record of when they visit so you can prepare yourself, and so on. All in all, spirits can link and step into your body using your vehicle as an end to their means so, be careful out there.
