When a Spirit is present your space, there are a few common sensations many mediums experience:
You can feel a heat wave come over your body, to the point where a change of clothes is required.
You can feel all over body chills or a sudden breeze.
You can feel tightness or pressure in your chest, as though you are unable to breathe.
You can feel like you are having an anxiety attack, unable to sit or calm down.
You can feel a sudden wave of emotions or even illness (this is common for when the deceased show up).
These are all signs that a shift of energy has occurred - often the faster, higher vibrational energy of many of those in Spirit.
Everyone feels change differently - and this is how I sense it:
What it feels like for me when Spirit is present -
When a Spirit is present, the first thing I notice is that I suddenly have a hard time sitting down and I begin pacing around the room. When I pace, I know this is a sign which I used to think was anxiety, but now I now know it’s Spirit. In addition to this, sometimes my hands get fidgety and I have to keep shaking them out.
After that, my chest often gets really tight, my heart starts beating fast, and my throat starts feeling like it’s constricting.
Before I was a medium, I was actually hospitalized for potential heart condition, due to the sudden tightness I was getting in my chest. An EKG showed no physical problems, though.
From there, I often stop whatever it is I'm doing and ‘tune in.’
I sit down and try to ‘find’ the Spirit in the room or in the space. This usually doesn’t take long, the Spirit is often behind me, some distance back.
If it’s a deceased person, I often start getting symptoms of their death, but not always. This could be stabbing chest pain, stomach cramps, metallic tastes in my mouth, extreme muscle soreness, etc. Or, I start picking up on aspects of their personality, how they feel to be around, what they are like, what general emotionality they carry (seriousness, laughing all the time, light-hearted, heavy-hearted, etc).
If it’s an angel or a guide, I also pick on aspects about them - such as what they look like, how they feel to be around, and most importantly things they do when they visit ‘their person’.
The sensations vary from there, and then the images, the words and the information simply starts to flow in.
And that’s it ~
This is how I sense Spirit.
Every medium feels ‘it’ differently, check out the above article links to try to identify what it feels like for you.
Only once you identify a Spirit present, can you truly begin to tune in and communicate with one.
