Crossing The Line: When Spirit Links With Your Body To Communicate
amanda linette meder
Wondering what it feels like when a Spirit passes through you? Think you may have just felt a Spirit enter your body? If you are a medium, Spirit communicator, or now a Spirit-communicator-by-surprise, read on -
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 when losing a physical body:
Complete freedom of movement and the liberation of time
The ability to go wherever we want, whenever we want
The gift of telepathically communicating with our loved ones
There are also things that we lose.
You lose your voice box, and 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, which was previously accessed through the vehicle of the physical body - voice.
Thus, when a human dies and their comfort tools of communication are lost, they have to learn new Spirit communication tools, and they usually do.
As a human still on earth, it can be harder to notice when their Spirit is present to communicate. This is especially true when you aren’t actively looking for non-human body dominated communications coming through.
So some Spirits will increase their levels of communicate with you in order to get through, and that’s what this post is about.
First, How To Sense Human Spirit Energy.
Imagine yourself as a living human standing at the kitchen sink.
In this kitchen, your back, while you face the sink, faces the door behind you. Because your back is turned to the door, you cannot use your physical eyes to see who is present if a person were to come in behind you.
Even with your back turned, though, can you usually tell when another human has walked into the room behind you?
Can you tell how far away they are from you?
Most people can usually tell when someone has walked in, and yes, you can usually tell how close they are to you, as long as they are loud enough.
We can all generally sense when another human is present, without seeing their physical body being present.
You can sense the presence of another Human Spirit.
We all can.
As a social species and as a member of a live-child rearing society, our survival is dependent on the presence of at least one other human in our space, usually a caretaker.
Thus, as children, starting as babies, we are attuned to be able to tell and sense the presence of someone, who could perhaps 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 intact. They can still form a fairly dense cloud of energy, as they collect their now free-energy molecules together into a human shape.
Because of this, you can likely also pick up on a Spirit.
However, how do you know when a Spirit comes into your space, intending to communicate?
Human Spirits, Deceased Loved Ones, when Spirits want to communicate with you, they ‘link' with your energy.
This means they step into your personal space, your energy field, your comfort zone. This is so that you may hear, see, and sense what they sense, and ideally speak for them.
The collection of what you pick up when this happens contains what their message is to you or the recipient of said message.
As you can imagine, when someone comes into your energy, 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.
These symptoms occur when a Spirit is standing next to you to communicate with you.
If you notice any of these symptoms above, you can take it a step further and learn to communicate with them, finding out who they are and what they may want.
Alternatively, 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 a Spirit get closer than next to you?
A Spirit can take the connecting process one step further, by floating right into your body. This is what is called channeling or what is known as a Spirit passing through you.
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, if allowed, can step into your body to communicate.
Different names for when Spirit steps into your body:
When it happens temporarily, it's called a Spirit passing through your energy.
When it happens long term, and it's welcomed, it's called channeling.
When it happens involuntarily, for any length of time, it's called possession.
When welcome, a Spirit floating into your body can evolve into a form of mediumship called trance mediumship or channeling.
In this type of mediumship, rather than speaking to a Spirit outside of yourself, and passing those messages along to someone else, the Spirit steps into your body. It then 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 stand next to me?
Think of your body as a vehicle.
When every human Spirit comes onto the 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.
Some Spirits get comfortable with using their physical world vehicle to get around while alive.
When they die, rather than learning how to get into the backseat of a vehicle and giving directions to the new chauffeur on where they want to go, they decide it's easier just to drive themselves.
Also, in the case of welcomed relationships with Spirits, some mediums and channels find it less work to translate Spirit messages, if they just let the Spirit, who could be benevolent, take over for a bit.
There is less of a conversion factor to deal with, less gets lost in translation.
When you let Spirit take the wheel while channeling, there's also less of a chance for the ego to take over the messages, because it's now in the backseat. Releasing the self while connecting with Spirit is thought to make the channeling episode clearer.
What to expect when a spirit passes through you/steps into your body
Outside of the above welcomed circumstances, when a Spirit is jumping into your body to speak for themselves through you, you may feel at first uncomfortable and notice yourself:
Saying things you would not usually say
Being driven to speak on things out of turn or with odd accents
Having different body language movements or gestures
You may feel more animated, as though you have double the amount of energy you had before (you do).
You may 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).
These are the psychic symptoms of channeling. And remember, Spirits will normally link with your body the regular way when they want to communicate. Typically this involves raising your energy.
When Spirits step into your body and take over, this is where some people draw the line, but thankfully, doing so is rare.
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.
So to recap, when Spirit passes through you:
It can feel crowded, claustrophobic
You may say things you wouldn't usually say
You can set your boundaries with them in the long term
You can always choose with whom you communicate with, when, and how, by setting your boundaries, learning their style of communication, beginning to keep a record of when they visit and where you have your interactions, so you can prepare yourself for them.
Also - some Spirits link with your energy to get your attention or to wake you up.
If this is happening, you may have future encounters with them. Again, the energy you pick up when linking with them is usually the entirety of their message to you.
How do you know you are connecting with beings in the highest light?
First, get to know your own energy, each being has a signature energy apart from yours and you can use this to discern who is safe, since Spirits are usually otherwise invisible.
