10 Things You Should Know Before Communicating with Spirits
Have you ever wondered how the mediums do it? Is it some sort of mystery . . . or some sort of secret recipe that makes it all work? While everyone does have their own way of doing 'it,' there is a formula that works best for all of us.
Over the course of communicating with hundreds of Spirits, both professionally for others and in my personal life, I've learned a few things that can make spirit communication much easier for anyone attempting to make the connection.
And today, I'd like to share these things with you -
1. You Need to Focus
A scattered mind and a wayward attention span is no way to have a meaningful conversation with anyone, let alone a spirit someone. With miscommunications already incredibly common just between two individuals right here on the physical plane, and as you might imagine, miscommunication is even more common between two individuals who are spanning different realms. No matter how distant the communicators, miscommunication happens because at least one person in the conversation is simply not fully present when they're talking to being talked to. In other words, their body may be there with you, but their mind . . .elsewhere.
Calm your mind down, go for a long walk or run, journal all your worries, write down your to-do lists, do whatever you need to do to chill so you can focus on the here and now.
If your Spirit isn't present for the conversation, you won't be able to genuinely connect with anyone else in Spirit.
2. Physical Communication Tools Aren't Inherently *Bad*
Talking boards, pendulums and dowsing rods are nothing more than physical matter - there's no inherent positive or negative qualities to them. And while it is true that physical tools do attract more amateur communicators (and for this reason, some people also think amateur/low energy spirits), they aren't responsible for any evil doing themselves. It's the owner of the tool, not the tool itself, that determines what it's used for and how it's used.
Either way, I don't use physical tools for communication - but not for this reason. I don't use physical tools because they are a painstakingly slow way to get information from someone. Pulling teeth. Using yourself as the tool, rather, where you are the 'medium' or 'instrument' for communication instead of something else, is a rapid fast modality.
Letter by letter communication - years it would take to get the same level and quality information. Hello, reader. Spirits communicate more seamlessly through the intuitive senses. Which we all have.
3. There are 2-8 Protective Spirits around every single person
Years ago, I was in an abusive relationship. I lie. I was actually in more than one abusive relationship.While in recovery from those situations, I was told once by a wise soul that no one can take advantage of you if you don't allow them to. Alas, this is truth. On Earth and in Spirit.
You and I and everyone reading this - we each have between 2-8 protective Spirits helping to guide and guard us. Where were your protective Spirits last week? Or mine, when I was in those abusive relationships? They were there. But the key to their power lies in that you have to ask them for help. I didn't ask them because I didn't know better, but now you know better - so ask.
If you are worried about a bad Spirit contacting you or something dark influencing your life, first, remember that Jesus himself is a Spirit. So there's at least one good guy over there you're aware of. Ask him and anyone you know of or who knows you in Spirit to watch your back. And they will.
4. Being around negative people can dampen your results
You are the collective make-up of the people, the energy and the environment by which you surround yourself. You are what you eat. . . energetically, as well as physically.
Spirits are high vibrational energetic beings. To best reach and communicate with them, you need get in a high vibrational energy state yourself. This means you need to get in a positive, high-flying-feeling mindset.
If you or those you surround yourself with are largely negative and have dampening energy - think - those people who you feel drained or exhausted by - it'll be much harder to get yourself or your space into the state you need to best connect. So, cut your cords to the negative people in your life . . and don't look back. It's for the best, especially when you're trying to connect with Spirit.
5. A Healthy Mind and Body Work Best
Going back to point #2, the most effective mediums use themselves as their instrument of communication.
The cleaner the body, the clearer the mind and the healthier the environment you are in . . . all of this will affect how clear, clean and precise your connection is and can be. So, drink more water. Eat healthier. And cut ties to anything or anyone that is muddling up your space - emotionally, energetically and physically.
The healthier and more stable you are as a person, the healthier and more stable your connection to Spirit will be, too.
6. There are Certain types of Atmospheric Conditions that can amplify results
Water is an energy conductor and the more of it there is in the air, generally, the easier to it is to get it (the air itself) to act as a great transmitter and receiver energy of for you. This is one of the reasons I've primarily chosen to live in a foggy, wet forest on the east coast.
- There plentiful dew in the air
- You are near coastlines and riverbanks
- It is a particularly foggy or humid day
. . . it is easier to see, hear and connect to the unseen realms.
It's also easier where the air is thinner (higher altitudes) and in places with lots of natural geologic activity.
7. . . . and certain times of day and year
When human activity is at it's lowest, Spirit activity is most easily sensed. Thus, the middle of the night is a great time for Spirit Contact. But it's not the only time when you can more easily perceive the Spirit World.
Here are times of day and year when the veil is thin:
- The Darkest Time of Night (between 3-4 am)
8. You'll likely need to mix and match techniques, depending on the Spirit
No one can specialize in everything.
This goes for Spirits, too. Most Spirits specialize in certain things - including communication methods. Keep in mind that not every Spirit knows how to materialize to a T, form a human shape out of thin air or has expertise knowledge on how to manipulate an electronic device.
All Spirits have their own unique skill sets, and strengths and weaknesses of communication, just as you and I do. Learn a few methods of getting through and try them all with each Spirit you talk to until you get a match.
9. For goodness sake, keep a Record
If every single Spirit communicator kept a record of what happened to them on different days, we would all believe ourselves more magical than we currently do. Humans are horrible at remembering and recognizing patterns (it's true), which is why science developed a system long ago for keeping track . . it was called notetaking.
By recording what you get, you can later look back and review your notes. Anyone of serious study who records their dreams, hunches and their mysterious happenings will start noticing the patterns. Spirits communicate with subtly and on a different pace than which communication happens in human world.
You can connect the dots of what it all means by taking notes and researching your findings.
The best mediums are those that learn to balance themselves between two worlds - one foot in the physical, the other in the spiritual. Think of spiritual communication as you, standing on a see-saw. If you are "all in" on one world, you won't be able to notice or even touch base with the other.
Quiet down the Physical World influences to truly connect with Spirit World.
Turn off the radio, lower the volume on the television, stop checking your phone and disconnect yourself from all the physical pings and pulls. When you do this, you're allowing yourself the space to more completely shift . . .to pay attention to the spiritual world.
