Connecting with spirit
One of the goals of a lot of people on a spiritual path is to learn the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and to be able to communicate with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and I know that it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.
Like anything we do, the more you work at it the stronger and better you will become and the more it will grow. There are a few stages we go through when learning to make spiritual contact.
Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them. Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.
Stage Two – Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits trying to interact with you.
During this stage…
You might hear the same song over and over again
You might notice things in your environment move
You might see shadows and orbs
You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
You may experience strange smells
You might develop strange tastes
You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.
Stage Three – Awakening – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself.
You will also ….
Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled.
You might see shadows and shapes around you.
You might hear words or phrases.
You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
You might have moments were you feel them.
You will have dreams of your companions and have lucid experiences with them.
You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them.
Your senses will begin to stabilize
You will have routines with your companions and know how they work and have moments where you see, hear and sense them very clearly.
May now you should try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself.
Stage Three – Strong Sensations –Your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and you are in a higher state of arousal.
You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing.
You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed.
You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images.
You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them.
You are able to feel and sense their energy.
You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities, you are able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk, feel them and touch them.
Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you are working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing. At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them.
You know who is who and can tell whose energy belongs to which companion.
You can tell when you are being touched or stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
You can smell them you will know the aromas that your companions have.
You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences.
You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
you can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
You can tell the difference between them.
You can have physical stimulations from them and receive messages and inspirations from them.
Remember to be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a lot lying dormant within us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.
