Connecting with spirit

how-to-call-upon-your-spirit-guide-300x168

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.

Decode your life purpose using your date of birth.

images

Finding your life path number can help you decode your life purpose, unleash your inner potential and find a place where you belong in this world.

There are ways to know the keys to finding your path in life and discovering the purpose which you have received when you were born. Identifying your life path number is one of those.

From time to time, you can’t help but wonder if you are on the right path towards discovering your purpose in life. When you have a clear connection with your higher self and know how to follow your own intuition, you usually know what your next step should be that would take you closer to realizing your purpose. Most people today seem lost and only crisis situations remind them about the need of spiritual self discovery. Everything is energy and each day has its own energy vibration and frequency.

How your birth date determines your purpose in life

There are several ways to describe the energy vibration a given date holds. You can do it through Astrology which describes the way other planets affect the energy field of the solar system. There is also Numerology which gives you a way to discover the meaning of numbers in your date of birth it does offer insights and can help you discover your purpose in life as well.

Your date of birth is not an accident. Your higher self has chosen that date in order to connect a certain potential with the material world. Knowledge about your life path number can help you decode that potential and help you establish a clearer communication channel with your higher self.

How to calculate your life path number:

Here is how you determine a life path number based on the date of birth of David Cobs – 24th of February 1955. You take all the numbers in the date of birth (dd/mm/yyyy = 24/02/1955) and you add them up to get a single digit from 1 to 9. The date: 2+4=6, the month: 0+2=2, the year:  1+9+5+5=20=2+0=2. Date + month + year = 6+2+2=10=1+0= 1= life path number 1. Since zero is not really a number but a concept, it is not taken into account when calculating your life path number.

If during the calculation you get 11 or 22, you do not reduce them to a single digit since they stand for a master number. People with master life path numbers often have a special mission in this life.

The meaning behind different life path numbers

All the numbers need to be taken into account in order to see a bigger picture and find the answers you might be looking for about yourself. There is also Name Numerology which helps to understand the energy vibration of your name and describes the way you are manifested in society.

Here are short descriptions of the purpose of each of the life path numbers.

 Life path number 1

The purpose is to become a pioneer, invent and motivate others with your ideas. You are capable of self-motivation and can be generally described as an idea-oriented leader. Going into details might not be your thing, but you can definitely find a solution to any challenge.

Life path number 2

The purpose of this life path is to be a diplomat, peacemaker and create win/win situations. Your sensitive perception allows you to see a bigger picture and find a solution that would benefit both sides. The key is to discover and learn how to maintain your own identity in the process.

Life path number 3

The purpose is to let your inner child guide you and become responsible for the way you spend your energy. You are very dynamic with a lot of energy to spare. You are generally direct and your desire for immediate emotional response makes others see you as an eternal child.

Life path number 4

The purpose is to bring order, hard work and learn how to deal with change. You are a great protector and a guardian of the limits as well as material aspects of life. You know how to get the job done, which makes you a very important part of any team.

Life path number 5

The purpose is to be the catalyst for change with the reasonable amount of risk. You are the adventurer who treats life as a labyrinth that is full of new experiences. Often very creative with lots of ideas, but it could be quite hard for a life path 5 to make a decision.

 Life path number 6

The purpose is to overpower passive inertia and bring harmony into your life, so you can share it with others. Life path 6 is about service and keeping the balance. You have to learn not only to give but how to receive as well.

Life path number 7

The purpose is to break the shell of isolation and share your inner divine knowledge with the world. You are about analysis and going deep in your research of what life is about. You should listen to your strong intuition and make sure you don’t fall into addiction or become a fanatic.

Life path number 8

The purpose is to find your inner power in connecting spirituality with the material pleasures. Learn how to transform negative experiences into positive ones. Be careful not to get consumed by the greed for power. Use your instinct to create great teams that can accomplish pretty much anything.

Life path number 9

The purpose is to bring wisdom into the world without idealism and martyrdom. Life path 9 is about mystical knowledge and comfort of the soul. Keep your inner balance without swinging from joy to desperation and it will help you realize your full potential.

Master life path number 11

Discover your purpose by bringing enlightenment and spiritual balance. Find your own place in the material world, but make sure to keep your soul pure and evolve spiritually.

Master life path number 22

The purpose is to become the master of the form. Use your organizational skills and charisma to build systems and manage programs on the global scale. When you are constructively creative, anything is possible.

Do yours and see if it fits your personality, mine is number 8, I am very spiritual and can always turn a negative into a positive.

This is a little clip from last week’s angel board session we wanted to show that it’s not scary when done correctly please do not try this at home or do it without a medium present.

 

Cutting The Cords

cords-237x300

We are all linked on an energetic as well as a spiritual level the people we connect with can often influence what we think to how we feel.

Our connections with those around us can make us feel inspired and uplifted although occasionally we find ourselves having to deal with people or relationships where we feel drained.

You might have heard of the spiritual technique of cord cutting, this is where you visualise the other person, seeing the energetic cords that run between you and them then seeing them being cut then you must surround the ends with a healing white light and then send them on their way

It can be a very powerful yet doesn’t have to mean the end of the relationship that exists between you.  It’s more about reclaiming your own power and restoring the energy balance between you.

The modern day approach means that we need to use spiritual practices like cord cutting with other things that can heal or transform whatever situation we find ourselves in. Otherwise, we can visualise cords being cut until the sun goes down and smudge ourselves every day and still find ourselves feeling as we were before.

Here’s some of what you can do.

Try and avoid the urge to go back, if we’re talking about exes, then no checking out face book to see what they are up to and no midnight sexting or answering booty calls.  It can be harder to gently ease away from a relationship that’s passed its sell by date, but sometimes that’s what you need to do.

Try to fill the gap, everything that we do, including our thoughts, actions and habits can be hard to break. Get rid of your bad habits and replace them with ones that inspire you and lift your energy.  Try taking that evening course or find a new hobby this can help you transform or balance a relationship that saps the life out of you.

Focus on yourself, nurture yourself and then put your new found energy into making your life better.  Make an effort to spend time with people who make you feel good for all the right reasons.  Go after your dreams, remember who we connect with can impact on our whole life and what we wish to create.

Sometimes there is a bigger picture that can reveal the people who appear to be dragging us down, have shown up to help us step into our power or move us on to the right path. If someone is rude or aggressive remove yourself from that energy and literally go somewhere else.

By changing our energy and thoughts, we create the positive experiences we want in our life and people that we destined to meet.  Make some changes because that kind of magic can work for you.

A season, a reason, often it’s a lesson.

Earth-Angel

Have you ever thought that you didn’t meet a certain person by chance, that it was meant to happen, for whatever the reason? Sometimes people come into our lives that are not meant to be forever, for some of us it’s a season others it’s a reason and often it’s a lesson. Some of our relationships are rougher than others, but all end up an important part of our life journey.

So, here are 5 types of cosmic connections you may encounter on your journey:

  1. Those meant to awaken us.

These people come into our lives that are meant to stop us in our tracks, they will not allow us to move forward without realising that change is needed, this is where nothing ever seems to go according to plan, often there is always a bigger picture and just we have to wait for it to unfold.

  1. Those who remind us.

Sometimes we come across people who remind us of the path we are supposed to be on, often we get sidetracked and these people often come along temporarily and leave a lasting change inside your heart and soul and put us back on track.

  1. Those that help us grow.

These people are meant to help us grow as a person, they teach us things and lessons sometimes painful ones, and more than likely ones we would not have chosen or been able to do on our own, everything gets better with time, often it’s not what we get thrown at us, its how we deal with what we get, that makes us grow.

  1. Those that hold space for us.

There are people who come into our life who are meant to hold space for us. They make small talk and most of the time we don’t even get their names. This could be a stranger on a bus or even a worker in a coffee shop they show compassion and make us feel better and that there are nice people out there. I call these people earth angels they just show up at the right time, when we need a bit of kindness.

  1. Those that stay

One day when we are ready the Universe will give us someone special who will stay with us forever, someone who is our fate part or our life plan.  We  will encounter many people who stay, lasting friendships and close family but that one person that we all long for, is our soul mate that one person that just seems to make everything better.

The Lynx Spirit Animal

th.jpg

Recently I did a shamanic journey to see what would come up for me; I do them every now and again for guidance. I popped on one of my shamanic drumming CD’s and it wasn’t long before I was in the jungle, it was brilliant!

Along my jouney I could hear the sounds, smell the earthy tones and see all the sights around me, while walking along with my one of my guides I noticed a large cat, it turned and looked right at me with large green eyes, I wasn’t sure what type it was, upon returning from my meditation I looked up the types of large cats, it was the Lynx that resonated with me.

I thought it was interesting and that you might like to read the meanings and lessons of having a Lynx as a spirit messenger.

Here are some of the meanings I found while doing some research on the internet.

The lynx spirit animal is known to be a very excellent hunter, and is considered the master seer because of its gift of second sight. The lynx symbolism can teach you so many things that will help you understand the spiritual mysteries of the world, and how you can best apply this knowledge and wisdom to your daily life.

The meaning of the lynx points to your gift of ‘hearing’ other people’s thoughts and seeing into their souls, as well as their intentions and thoughts. You can pick up on vibrational energies and use them to determine your actions and responses.

The lynx symbolism also speaks about instinct and the powers of observation. You can always rely on these things, especially when you are feeling confused or disconnected.

The lynx totem represents your vision and foresight, and your ability to see through lies and deceptions and find the unseen. This helps you develop awareness to the world around you.

The lynx meaning also has something to do with valuing your promises and taking care of people’s confidence in you. When you give someone your word, you must honour it.

You are being encouraged to trust your instincts. You should also awaken your abilities if you want to advance in life.

The lynx meaning will help you determine what’s real and practical from what’s superstitious and imaginary. It will help you become more watchful about the people around you and the events that are unfolding before you.

When the lynx spirit animal comes walking into your life, know that not everything is exactly what it appears to be. You need to use your abilities if you want to see things or people for what they truly are.

Doing so will help you avoid disappointment, hurt, and betrayal. Seeing the truth in matters will guide you to make the best choice that will benefit you today and in the future.

Seeing the lynx spirit animal means that you should stop and smell the roses, for love will soon manifest in your life. You may need to open your eyes first to the deception that some people are playing on you, but once you get this out of the way, you will be able to see all the romantic possibilities clearly.

The lynx meaning will encourage you to understand your life truths, and even reconsider the values that they hold. This is a good time to be more flexible, adventurous, and light-hearted when it comes to love.

Positive Traits of the Lynx Spirit Animal

You have the most fun and creativity when you’re solitary, but you also unleash your playful and less serious side when you’re in the mood. You know how to have fun, and you get things done.

You value your alone time because this allows you to discover truths about yourself and others. Knowing the truth gives you purpose, understanding, and connection.

Having the lynx totem makes you comfortable with who you are. You don’t need anyone’s approval or validation.

You have a very calm and quiet nature. But when you speak, everybody listens.

You are a very patient person. You wait for the perfect timing.

People like to share their secrets with you because they can trust you to keep them. At the same time, they don’t want to be around you because they know you can see through their facades.

Even if you don’t look it, you know how to play and have fun, and you can be very passionate about things. Most of all, you give importance to the people in your life, even if you don’t show it all the time.

You also don’t like to discuss your feelings because you know that you’re quite weak when arguing about them. You don’t like being wrong, being taught a lesson, or losing, and you will just choose to shut up when you’re in an uncomfortable confrontation.

People have a hard time getting you to communicate at command because you will just do so when you feel like it. When you don’t like a person, you will remain completely shut off.

Call on your Lynx Spirit Animal when:

  • You are feeling challenged spiritually or emotionally.
  • Listen to your heart, because there you will find the truth and wisdom that you need. Life will not always make sense, but you can always figure it out by tuning in to what your heart is telling you.
  • You are going through a tough life lesson.
  • There will always be ups and downs, but they don’t last forever. Be strong and do what you can to survive this challenging period!
  • You need to be more focused when it comes to achieving your goals.

Stop talking and start doing. Work quietly and determinedly, and don’t focus on the noise that aims to distract you.

The lynx spirit animal is reminding you that everything that is hidden will be revealed one day. The meaning of the lynx is also asking you to pause before you respond to avoid putting yourself in awkward social situations. Sometimes being silent is the best response.

The lynx symbolism wants you to address insecurities that you have so that you can grow and progress to the next level. If you will not do anything positive about them, you will be stuck with this version of yourself, and you will have a hard time achieving the life that you desire.

Spirit Guides

tenrnrgf

We are all blessed with spirit guides who surround us and support us. We usually have around four sometimes more. Our main spirit guide is with us from birth. The rest of the guides tend to join us throughout our life. Their assistance can be both practical and spiritual in nature.

Most of us forget who we were before we reincarnate and where we’ve come from and what our reason is for being here. Spirit guides know that it is challenging to be incarnated here on earth and keep a connection to your higher self and your soul’s purpose.

The role of your guides is to gently but consistently guide you by intuitive nudges to stay on track with your soul’s purpose. If something is in your purpose to accomplish, you will find the support from your spirit guides they will hook you up with resources, people, and money, books to help you reach your goals, sometimes they offer insight and comfort when you feel lost.

You don’t need to have really well developed psychic abilities to begin working with your spirit guides. You may not be able to perceive them at all times but your guides can certainly perceive you. You only need to set an intention and they will pick up on it. Or you can speak to them out loud and they will hear you.

Your spirit guides work to help you manifest your desires into the physical, often in unexpected ways! I recently realized that I have a particular guide who hooks me up with the clients who could benefit from a session with me.

Be open-minded and the Universe will send you the resources you need in ingenious and creative ways. If you expect to receive help through one particular channel, you may miss or discard the help that shows up in other ways.

The Raven, The Magic & The Journey

5825241747cce5ec9a8aac03982a7854

Through out time, the Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been the case in many cultures. We honour the Raven as the bringer of magic, it is sacred, in the medicine ways. Those who fear Raven may do so because they have been dabbling in areas in which they had no knowledge, Shamanic journeying, magical workings or a spell that may have backfired on them. Rather than analysing the dark side of sorcery, one should realize that you will only fear the Raven if you need to learn about your inner fears or your own created demons.

Raven magic is a powerful medicine that can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the unknown or the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form. Some call it the Great Mystery. The Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being, spirit lives inside the void and the Raven is the messenger of the void.

If a Raven appears in your spread, dream or journey you are about to experience a change in consciousness. This may involve walking a spiritual path or doing something new if you are already learning the ways of spirit. It would be a signal brought to you by the Raven that says, ” You have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life’s magic.”

In Native teachings the colour black means many things, but it does not mean bad or evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the void, or spiritual. The blue-black of the Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness a changeability of shape and form that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in absent healing. In many healing circles, the Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel disease or illness, the Raven brings in wellness.

It is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony itself and the intended destination. For instance, if a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, the Raven would be the courier for that energy flow. The intention could be to allow the people of the devastated area to feel the concern and support of the participants in the ceremony.

If you have chosen a Raven, and then magic is in the air, don’t bother trying to figure it out, you can’t. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. The deeper mystery, however, is how you will respond to the synchronicity of this alchemical moment. You can recognize it and use it to further enhance your growth, you can accept it as a gift from spirit, try not to limit the power given by trying to explain it away.

It may be time to call upon a Raven as a courier to carry an intention this may be some healing energy, a thought or a message. The Raven is the patron of smoke signals or spirit messages represented by smoke. So if you want to send a message to spirit, in order to contact your ancestors call a Raven or possibly, the ancients may be calling you to give you the answers that you seek.

Remember, this magic came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is to bring it to light and in doing so you will honour the magic within.

Shamanic Meditation Classes

th shaman med

Shamanism for thousands of years has helped with personal intuitive development and divination. It is effective in working to heal the self. Shamanism can support and sustain positive personal growth and enhance your spiritual connection. Journeying is a powerful meditative state. It takes us into a very special level of consciousness that helps us work more deeply with our intuition with spiritual guidance.

Prolonged hypnotic drumming is used to promote relaxation and the experience of a trance like visionary awareness. Through journeying, we can find alternative realms during our visions and dreams through spirit travel we can open the door to an awareness to other worlds. These other worlds are sources of the energy, creativity and passion, finding our way there can be a blessing that brings us wisdom and self-empowerment in a positive, healing way.

Journeying is often done lying down, with our eyes closed, while in meditation we travel to other realms. There are generally three types of journeys that can be undertaken.

Lower World can be a dimension of healing and self- empowerment. Upper World can be a place of wisdom and teaching. In Middle World, where spirit is present and ready to work with us.

Lie down and get comfortable, breathe deeply, close your eyes, allow yourself to be carried by the rhythm of the drum. Focus on a specific intent such as “I want to meet and ask advice of my Spirit Helpers” or “I want to talk with my Guardian Angel” or “I want to work on healing for myself.

We begin by focusing and going to a safe place. Many people choose a beautiful garden or beach, and then look for an entryway into the earth, maybe through a hollow in a tree, you are carried by the sound of the drumming as you let yourself explore this wonderful place, seeking out your Spirit Helpers. The Lower World often has a loving, earthy feel. It is frequently inhabited by Spirit Guides who are deeply connected to Mother Earth, mythical animals and elfin creatures.

When you encounter a being in your traveling, whether its human, animal, angel or spirit , ask it if it is in fact your Spirit Guide, Helper, Teacher or Power Animal. You can ask its name, what wisdom or message it has for you, why is it in your life, what you can or should work on together. Then, let your Journey proceed, doing as your Helper directs. At the end of the journey you hear the callback rhythm of the drum a sound like four insistent rapping on a door, or when you feel you have completed your Journey’s you can tell your Helpers that you wish return to ordinary reality.

Remember to thank them for their assistance, lastly you will hear a series of light, rapid drumbeats, during this rhythm, allow yourself to drift gently back into your body. Reverse the path you took during your spirit travel. There will then be a second series of the four rapping’s on the door. That’s the time to let yourself properly reconnect with your body. Slowly, gently open your eyes. Come back to realty.

These classes will start in June on a Sunday afternoon in Chelmsford town centre, cost £10 if you would like to join us message me you will need to put your name down and payment is up front.

This entryway often leads to a tunnel that then leads somewhere else. That somewhere else – whatever it may be like – is the Lower World which is what we are using for this journey. As you are being carried by the sound of the drumming, let yourself explore this wonderful place, seeking out your Spirit Helpers. The Lower World often has a loving, earthy feel.
