The other night, my significant other and I went to a really nice farm-to-table restaurant in a small suburb near our home.
We like going to new places.
Yet, as discussed in previous posts, new mediums in new places frequently encounter new spirits who aren’t necessarily familiar with a particular mediums' boundaries or preferences of communication.
Everywhere you go, you have the opportunity to meet a stranger and make a friend - even in the Spirit world.
But, those in the Spirit world don’t always make themselves immediately visible.
Even as a clairvoyant medium, I only see Spirits when they choose to be seen and choose to manifest and condense the energy down into a denser, more physical-like form - into an apparition.
While Spirits are present everywhere, their energy - the molecules they use to travel, communicate and connect with - is a lot more gaseous and less dense than the energy of people with physical bodies, whose energy is condensed into a small, compact space.
The more dense a person or an object is, the more light reflectance there is and thus, the more visible they are.
The less dense and more spacious the particles, the less collective reflectance there is and therefore, the less visible.
Those in Spirit are without physical body, they do not have to keep their energy in a condensed, tight format, like we humans do.
Spirits are less dense than humans - less visible.
But, when they want to communicate with a human, they often are charged with the challenge of becoming more like a human - in form, in sound and in action.
For someone who does not have a human body, mimicking human appearance and behavior can take a significant amount of skill, especially when they don’t have a physical human body to work with.
Though Spirits are all around us, seeing a Spirit can be challenging.
This often has little to do with your abilities to see or not see them.
It all has to do with the fact that it’s a lot of work to appear.
When a Spirit wants to communicate with you, an apparition is kind of the last resort. It’s the most work and can be a huge waste of time and energy if the person they are attempting to communicate with doesn’t look exactly at the right moment.
So, those in Spirit when they do try to appear to you, will do so when you are most readily able to see them.
When are you most ready to see them?
When you are caught by surprise, off guard and when you least expect it.
This is why when he and I were walking back to the car after dinner, as I turned to put the keys in the driver’s side door to unlock it, and I looked across the car to the passenger's side at him - I didn’t see him. I saw a dead man standing right beside him.
I gasped out loud and covered my mouth.
Was I shocked? Yes.
Did they catch me when I least expected it? Definitely yes.
Did he appear for long? No.
I only saw him in physical-like form for a flash of a second.
Many of those in Spirit only have the strength to pull together that many molecules at one time to manifest for just a second or two, until they lose the power to control all that energy, and have to release it, dispersing it into the surrounding environment once again, like a mist.
As soon as I noticed he was gone, I instantly felt a man standing behind me. Knowing it was the same Spirit I just saw, I didn’t feel any fear.
I just told him we were busy and that now wasn’t a good time to talk.
