Do you dream of falling ?

falling-dream

 

Did you know that dreaming of falling, can be one of the most common and frightening dreams, some of you have probably experienced the feeling of being woken up suddenly after a dream where you were falling.

This feeling has a physiological explanation, as you fall asleep, your blood pressure and heart rate decrease, and this is often the cause of the falling sensation.

Sometimes these dreams have deeper meanings, falling is something that is out of our control it often leads to hurt and distress. If you dream about falling, it can suggest that you are feeling like things in your waking life are slipping from your grasp and that you are losing control of situations that are possibly causing you stress.

To get to the bottom of what it is that is causing your concerns and worries to spill over into your subconscious, it’s important to examine the different areas of your life and find out what it is that is causing you to feel overwhelmed or vulnerable, and find where you feel that unable to control what is happening to you.

Perhaps you’re going through a difficult time at work and are under a lot of pressure, or maybe you’re having trouble at home within a relationship and you are feeling increasing frustrated because things aren’t going the way you want. Maybe you’re having difficulty with finances and are worried about what is going to happen.

Any of these could be causing you to dream about falling. It’s also important to take a look how you are falling in the dream to help figure out exactly what is going on and how you feel about the situation.

If you are falling in your dream as a result of losing your balance or grip, it is a sign that the problem lies internally. You may be feeling unstable and unsure of yourself and your abilities, and lacking in confidence. Have you have recently been through a period of change that you feel like you’re not coping with. You need to find a way to ground and work on yourself and get your confidence back so that you can face the situation or challenges in your life without being afraid of failure.

If in your dream you are holding on tightly to something or somebody to try to stop yourself from falling, that is a sign that you are trying your hardest to control a situation in your waking life. You may be in a difficult situation that you are trying to fix, but are failing to do so because something’s are simply out of your grasp and there is nothing you can do about them.

Sometimes, this dream is a message that you are holding onto something that isn’t meant for you, but that you are scared to let go because you don’t know what will happen when you do. This is often linked to a relationship, people tend to stay in relationships or cling to an ex simply because they are afraid to be alone or worry they’ll never find anybody else.

For others it’s facing a big change such as a move or a new job, and you are clinging on to your old life because you’re scared of what will happen in the future.
Holding on so tightly to the past is causing you stress and pain, and this dream can be a sign that you need to let go. Though it’s scary not knowing what will come next, sometimes taking a leap of faith is whats needed.

If you were pushed in your dream, it is a sign that the feeling of losing control is due to an external issue, such as another person. If you know who pushed you, then examine what they are doing in your waking life to make you feel stressed and out of control.

The person could be your boss or a colleague who is putting pressure on you at work, or perhaps it’s a loved one who you are not getting on to well with.
This dream could be a sign that you feel like you’re being pushed into doing things you don’t want to do. You need to examine how you are made to feel in real life, and what you can do to take back the control or change the status quo.

If you don’t know the person who pushed you, or didn’t see them, it could be that you are pushing yourself too much and are feeling stressed by working too hard. Maybe it’s time to slow down and give yourself a break before you push yourself to breaking point.

Take a step back, give yourself time to breathe and evaluate what you need to do to regain your inner balance and your control, so that you can tackle the problem.

If you feel that you need guidance to help you get the root of a problem that you are currently facing or some insight about what to do next, psychic readings can often help by providing the bigger picture, the possible outcomes and point you in the right direction.

Are you a Moon Child?

moon_child__by_sugarmints_d7m56em-fullview

Do you have a strong connection to the moon and its energy? Did you know that you can use the Moon energy to your advantage, you may be like me and feel energised and wide awake, often not sleeping much or not at all for around 3 days, a day or so leading up or during the Full or New Moon cycle, so during this time, I plan any new projects or work on my ideas, I finish stuff that I have been putting off or sometimes just put out my intentions wishing and focusing on the moon energy to help send it out to the universe, occasionally  I also do a little spell work.

If you’re on my face book you will see the posts going up I often tell you when it’s the New Moon or Full Moon and what star sign it’s in to help those that might be more effected by the energy during that time.

During the Waning moon I don’t generally start anything new I have found if I do it doesn’t tend to work out to well, it’s better to rest up a little until it moves into the Waxing position. We have a New Moon coming in the next few days this is a good time to start planning or working on what you would like to send out to the universe.

I have now started doing Moon energy readings for myself, just to explain it simply, during each New Moon or Full Moon it falls in one of the signs of the Zodiac its brings in certain energies that we can use to our advantage.

If you would like a reading then message me or take a look at the options on my website.

You can either have a monthly moon reading, 3 months or a yearly moon reading to help you live more consciously or like me you can use the Moon energy as a tool to help create the life you want by manifesting or cosmic ordering, you will also learn how to make the most of each New and Full Moon depending on which sign of the zodiac they are in, I will also include mini psychic prediction if you already have card readings with me then you know that these are very accurate.

I will need your date, time of birth and location (UK or Overseas) these will be sent to your email ready for you to refer too or print off.

Herbal tinctures to relieve anxiety, help with pain & improve sleep.

35baff93cc500cc60c9686d9ac8ba651--marinated-olives-foodstyling

Perhaps you have heard the word tincture but are not exactly sure what it is.  A tincture is a very concentrated liquid of an herb that preserves the therapeutic properties of the herb to make it more effective. Tinctures are taken by mouth by the dropper full which usually equals 30 drops.

Tinctures are not difficult to make and are a highly valuable addition to your natural home medicine kit.

History of Herbal Tinctures.

There was a point in history where much, if not all medicine was grown in the garden. Tinctures were common and used for a wide variety of ailments and have their ancient roots in cultures all over the world. However, after the process of alcohol distillation was discovered in Europe, they became widely popular. During the Victorian period, tinctures were readily available at the corner pharmacy and were the preferred method of delivering herbal medicine.

The use of tinctures in alternative health care practices is quite common today all over the world. Also, as more and more people discover the ease with which tinctures can be prepared at home, these are becoming a popular home DIY home remedy.

Basics of Tincture Making.

No matter what type of tincture you are making, the process is relatively the same. Here is a list of the supplies you will need:

  • Clean glass jar, pint size
  • Consumable alcohol such as vodka must be 80 proof – can also use apple cider vinegar
  • Clean spoon
  • Cheesecloth
  • Small glass with a dropper
  • Herbs

Method.

  1. Fill the clean glass jar about ½ full with dried herbs (be sure not to pack the herbs down)
  2. Pour boiling water over the herbs just to get them wet (this will draw out beneficial properties of the herbs).
  3. Fill the remaining part of the jar with alcohol or apple cider vinegar and stir with a clean spoon.
  4. Place the lid on the jar and store the jar in a cool and dry place.
  5. Shake the jar daily for at least three weeks but up to six months.
  6. Strain the liquid through a  clean cheesecloth.
  7. Label your jar, so you know what is in it.
  8. Store the tincture in a clean glass jar in a cool location. If you use apple cider vinegar, store the tincture in the fridge and use within six months.

To take a tincture, it is best to put the drops directly under your tongue and avoid any liquid for fifteen minutes. This will get the herb directly into your bloodstream. You can also dilute a tincture with a little lemon or honey (this also helps to disguise the taste). You can also place a dropperful of a tincture in a cup of boiling water. This will give you an instant cup of herbal tea. Be sure to heat the water first before you add the tincture.

There are also some tinctures that are only recommended for external use. It is important that you pay attention to the best and safest method of application for tinctures.

Types of Tinctures & Their Medicinal Benefits.

Here are a few tinctures that you can make at home and the conditions that they will help.

For Anxiety.

We live in a rush-rush culture where everyone seems to be in a hurry to get somewhere or get something done. This type of environment often creates a state of chronic stress or anxiety. Anxiety can take a toll on both physical and mental health. Here are three effective tinctures that you can make at home to help relieve anxiety and promote calmness.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora): If you experience anxiety with restlessness, muscle tension or even jaw clenching, skullcap may be an option for you.

This perennial mint is helpful for people who feel like they can’t relax unless they are walking or moving around, toss and turn in bed and feel like they are ”climbing the walls.” Skullcap is especially effective as a tea or a tincture to reduce muscular tension and restlessness Take 20-40 drops of the tincture a few times a day – especially before retiring.

Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata): This herbaceous and woody vine produces a beautiful and intricate flower.  Although used historically as a sleep aid, passionflower is also an effective stress buster. For people who are exhausted all the time and in a constant state of stress, this tincture can help restore balance and energy.

The usual dosage is 20-40 drops for a 145-pound person. Add ten drops at a time if you don’t find some relief after twenty minutes.

Kava kava (Piper methysticum): This ancient herb from the Pacific Islands is well-known for its anti-anxiety properties. It does have a much more hypnotic effect than either passionflower or skullcap. The taste is very interesting and creates a numb like sensation in the mouth.

It should be noted that if you have liver issues you should not use kava kava. That being said, it is a highly effective anti-anxiety when used a few times a week.

To Relieve Pain.

Although there are hundreds of plants that contain inflammation reducing and pain fighting properties, a few really stand out. Many tinctures are just as good or better at easing pain as over-the-counter or even prescription drugs.

Here are two herbs that are particularly effective at fighting pain and reducing inflammation when taken in tincture form.

Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens): This tiny evergreen shrub is also known as teaberry, checkerberry, deerberry and boxberry and is in the heath family and closely related to cranberries, blueberries and huckleberries.  The berries of this plant are edible and the leaves and used in teas, extracts, and cordials. Pure oil of wintergreen is methyl salicylate which has the same anti-inflammatory and anti-fever properties as acetyl salicylate (or aspirin).  Native Americans used this herb for things such as rheumatoid and joint pain, headaches as well as general aches and pain.  Its antiseptic properties are also useful to battle toothaches, muscle pain, sore throats and sore mouths.

Take 6-12 drops of wintergreen tincture in water or juice, under the tongue. Take three times daily as needed and store in a cool, dark place.

Note: People who are sensitive to aspirin should not use wintergreen nor should people who are on blood thinning medication or those who suffer from acid reflux.

Arnica (Arnica Montana) – External Use Only

Arnica is a perennial plant that is found mostly in the mountainous regions of Canada, the northern United States, and Europe. Blooming in July and August, this flower produces a pretty bright yellow flower that resembles a daisy. For hundreds of years, the bloom of this plant has been used in a variety of alternative medicine applications. In Germany, it is very popular and used in over 100 drug preparations.

Some sports creams and rubs contain this flower and it is a popular natural pain killer amongst athletes and yogis. Although it is unclear how this herb is so effective, it clearly works to reduce the pain and inflammation of swelling of minor bruises, strains, and sprains.

Arnica tincture should be used externally only, and you must be very cautious not to get it in your nose, mouth or eyes. If you do, rinse out immediately with cold water.

Dilute arnica well before using on affected area.  Use several times a day to reduce pain and swelling.

To Help Beat Insomnia.

Do you suffer from insomnia? If so, you are not alone. Millions of people suffer from both acute and chronic sleep problems.  If you have problems falling asleep or wake up frequently during the night, you might want to try either of these herbal tinctures.

Sleep Mixture: This tincture is a combination of various herbs that work together to provide a sound night’s sleep.

  • Two tablespoons chamomile flowers
  • One tablespoon dried mint leaves

  • Glass quart jar with lid

  2. Pour the boiling water to cover them and mix well.
  3. Fill the rest of the way with vodka.
  4. Cap with an airtight lid and leave in a cool place for at least 2 and up to 8 weeks. Shake daily.
  5. Strain and put into small tincture bottles.

A usual dose is 2-3 dropper full’s for adults and 1 dropper full for kids over two. Add to some juice or water and take an hour before bedtime.

Fruity Sleep Blend: This blend is light and fruity but packs a potent punch.  Note, this tincture uses food grade glycerine instead of vodka or vinegar.

Ingredients:

  • Two tablespoons hibiscus flowers
  • One tablespoon lavender blossoms
  • Three tablespoons catnip
  • Three tablespoons chamomile
  • Two tablespoons passion flower
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup food grade glycerine
  • Pint jar with lid
  • Slow cooker
  • Cheesecloth

Instructions:

  • Add the herbs to the pint size jar
  • Pour boiling water over the herbs to cover them ( push them down slightly with a spoon)
  • Add the glycerine.
  • Put the lid on the jar and place it in a slow cooker ( line the bottom with a dish towel)
  • Pour water in until half of the jar is covered and turn the slow cooker on warm and cover
  • Let the jar sit for about 24 hours
  • Shake the jar a few times during the setting period.
  • Remove the jar and strain liquid using cheesecloth.
  • Put liquid in a tincture jar and store in the fridge.

For adults, mix three dropper full’s in water or juice and drink before bedtime. For toddlers, use half a dropper full and for older kids 1 to 2 dropper full’s.

Caution – As with any herbal therapy, check with a medical professional if you’re unsure about anything before using.

Witches Keys

tumblr_p8mgpzGC4I1uutnkko1_500

Keys are very old tools used in magic, they can be used for both divination and ritual purposes, they symbolise the power to change reality and open the doors of the other realms. Usually an old key is used by a Witch to travel through realms and seek the guidance of higher and wiser entities.

Skeleton Keys hold quite a lot of mystique.  They are connected with gateways and portals, doorways to the unknown, knowledge, mysteries, powers, initiations, new ways, forbidden things and answers to curious questions.  They are often associated with specific deities or spiritual figures, and are often used as part of charms or other magical tools.

Keys represent knowledge and access, and it’s important to note that they can both open and lock doors. Possessing a key is both about gaining access and setting boundaries.

Hecate, a goddess often described as the Queen of the Witches, is a deity associated with gate keeping and keys, she holds the keys that allow passage into the spiritual realm, she is also a great protector among other things.

Keys are often made into talismans or charms with many various functions. They will always be of great desire and use to those that practice the craft. They can be used as protection charms for doorways that included keys and protection blessings so that homes can be shielded from the spirits of the place passing through doorways.

You can also use them on your altar:

  • For divination, the passageway ‘in’.
  • The holder of the key is allowed access to all that is unseen
  • A symbol for sealed or locked away secrets
  • An initiatory tool held by the one that has gained access into specific spaces on the other side
  • A talisman in a protection spell
  • The amulet of the Traveller
  • Can be hung at doorways of your home for protection
  • Removing blocks
  • Opening roads
  • Calling spirits

Invocation to charge your key.

Sacred Key, Sacred Key,
I charge you with the task
of unlocking the path of mystery.
Grant me pass, let me in
Make available the secrets
that exist within.

I like to repeat on the power of 3×3, but do it as often as feels right for you the more you rely on your intuition, the more affective you will become.

All information was taken from various places on the internet, if you’re interested in finding out more about keys and there magical uses, try reading a few witchy / spell books.

Sea Witches and Water Witches

719651209146c30cd9cb0fde21c0154c

First let’s start by defining what a Sea Witch is and what a Water Witch is.
Sea witches usually define themselves as a witch that works with sea and ocean energies. Their altar may include sand and water from their local beach or beaches they have visited on their travels .They also may choose to perform magic on the beach with their found ocean treasures such as beach glass, shells, driftwood, bones, stones and fossils.

Not all sea witches work with a deity but for those that do they tend to choose sea deities such as Poseidon or Aphrodite, in some cases they may also choose to work with water spirits such as mermaids, oceanids, nereids or the spirit of sea monsters such as the Kraken or Leviathan. These are just a few examples of course; there are thousands of sea and ocean spirits to work with and some choose to work with living sea creatures such as fish or shell fish. There are so many ways to practice sea and ocean magic if you love the sea and the moon and it heavily influences your path and the magic you work then chances are you are a sea witch.

Sea witches focus on Moon lore, the tides, and weather magic, from these elements came the tradition of witches who could raise wind and cause storms, which even 200 years ago could send them to the stake. The Sea Witch does not just use white magic or black magic but gray magic because the person deals with all elements at their disposal when maintaining a balance between light and dark powers. Not many ordinary persons can manage such a feat, which is why most sea witches are solitary, working alone and by themselves.

According to legends witches were believed to be able to control the wind. One method was with the use of three knots tied into a rope, or sometimes into a handkerchief. When the three knots were tied in the proper magical way, the wind was bound up in them. Witches gave, or sometimes sold, these magic knots to sailors to help them experience safe voyages. The release of one knot brought a gentle, south westerly wind, two knots, a strong north wind and three knots, a tempest.

Although some choose to call themselves sea priestess, rather than witch, a sea priestess has a bit of a different calling than a sea witch. Witches are generally concerned with magic, spirit work and divination. While a sea priestess may also engage in these things, they are more concerned with serving a sea or ocean deity. You may find a sea priestess on the shores performing healing rituals, energy work or cleaning the shores.

Originally water witches were folk practitioners who would use a divining rod or rods to find water where one might dig a well or water source. However in modern times, many witches of the Watery nature have found that the term Sea Witch does not apply to them. Perhaps because they are to inland or perhaps because the lakes, rivers and sacred springs sing to their hearts the way the ocean does for sea witches. Water witches may be found working at their home altar with beautiful sacred bowls or jars of water based potions. Others may work at a sacred water site such as a holy well where they work with the water and the spirit of the well to bring about healing. They may also be found cleaning the shores of the local river bed and performing healing rites in a quite spot under the shade of a willow tree.

There is absolutely no reason why a Sea witch can’t work with water from a sacred well or a water witch can’t work on the sea shore. I personally am more of a sea witch I can use and prefer the pull of power and energy of the waves.

Witchy bottles & jars for magic.

il_340x270.1623241575_h3q0

In many traditions of folk magic in Europe and  North America, a spell is sealed inside a jar, bottle or other container. This serves a number of purposes, the first being that it keeps the magic concentrated, and prevents it from escaping before the spell has been completed. The other is that you can take it and put it anywhere you like.

Perhaps the best known type of jar spell is the witches bottle. In early times, the bottle was designed as a way to protect oneself from any negative witchcraft, usually around the time of Samhain, homeowners would create a witch bottle to keep evil spirits from entering the home on Hallows Eve. The witch bottle was usually made of pottery or glass, and included sharp objects such as pins and bent nails. It typically contained urine as well, belonging to the homeowner, as a magical link to the property.

The sort of container you use in a jar spell or bottle spell will partially depend on the intent of your working. For instance, if you’re hoping to do magic for healing and wellness, consider putting your spell ingredients into a medicine bottle, pill container, or apothecary style jar.

A spell done to sweeten someone’s attitude can be done with a jar of honey. In some forms of Hoodoo and folk magic, honey is used to sweeten someone’s feelings towards you. In one traditional spell, honey is poured into a jar or saucer on top of a slip of paper containing the person’s name. A candle is placed in the saucer, and burned until it goes out on its own. Another variation, the candle itself can be covered in honey.

You can also make a banishing spell using a jar of hot sauce, for this process the name of the person you wish to be rid of is written on a slip of paper, and stuffed into the jar of the hottest hot sauce you can find. Shake the bottle every night for seven nights during the waning moon, and on the final day, empty it down the loo and get rid of the bottle, hopefully the person will then “hot-foot it” out of your life.

A money jar spell can be done to bring wealth your way, in some traditions nine pennies are used, all though it may be various coins placed in a jar or bottle. The jar may then be painted green or gold if you wish and then put someplace where it can be seen each day. Eventually, according to tradition, money will start coming in, this one is best done on a full or new moon.

Keep in mind that spell jars can be plain and simple, or you can decorate them to look pretty. The nice thing about a decorative, attractive jar is that you can leave them anywhere you like, and no one will even realise that magic is going on.

Shell Magic

tumblr_p4ggdf60MG1v8d5b1o1_500

Long before new age shops our ancestors turned to nature for their power objects, seashells in particular have a long history of magical uses, as they were associated with the powers of various sea gods and goddesses of different cultures.

Properties

Being born of the ocean, shells are associated with the element of water, they are also associated with the moon, which drives ocean tides. Both the element of water and the moon have strong feminine energies that are receptive in nature, so shells are primarily used in magic to draw things you desire into your life.

Preparation

Shells taken from the ocean don’t need ritual preparation for magical uses; however, if your shells were bought from a store or have been stashed in a box for a while, they may benefit from cleansing and recharging. To do this, place your shells in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Set them aside to soak for a day or overnight. Recharge them by setting the bowl in the sun or under the light of the full moon for several hours.

Love

One of the main symbols for Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, is the seashell you can invoke the power of Aphrodite for love spells using shells by wearing seashell jewellery or hair ornaments to attract a mate. Use a hinged seashell with the two parts still attached as a powerful love talisman to keep two lovers together. Write the initials of the lovers on the inside of the shell, one on each side, then seal it shut with glue.

Prosperity

Many cultures used shells as a form of currency. Cowrie shells were used in Africa and North America, and Native Americans used wampum, beads made from clam shells as money. Because of this, shells are also suitable for money spells. Fill a small green or gold pouch with seashells, a silver coin and mint, which is a money drawing herb. Hang the bag where you do business, and rub it when you desire prosperity. Place a small seashell in your wallet or purse to continually keep money coming to it.

Protection

Protection is a shell’s primary purpose in nature, as it is made to keep small, defenceless sea creatures safe from harm, again because of this, shells have strong protective energies. Many cultures in coastal areas use shells in folk magic to protect the home by placing strings of shells over windows and doors. Necklaces of strung shells can be worn by children to keep them close to home and safe from harm. Some believe by placing a small, round shell on the collars of your pets will keep them safe should they wander from home.

Manifesting your goals.

2f3e526dc1978720e07537684fd523d6--grateful-quotes-grateful-heart

Working as a psychic, I often deal with clients who are trying to manifest new opportunities and create a better life. I have a few rituals that can be really effective at getting people into this mindset and help to bring about their dreams, whether it’s attracting financial abundance or making more like minded friends. I hope that they help you attract all the wonderful opportunities that you’re after.

Is your mind getting in the way of your highest good?

Putting together a plan of action may be second nature for you, but when it comes to manifesting, it’s best to surrender and let your mind be open to all possibilities. Who knows the Universe might have something better in store for you. When you begin trying to manifest a new job, lifestyle, partner or anything else, don’t latch on to too many details. Try to remain open and flexible.

 Watch out for the signs.

Be more present and watch for signs from the Universe. When you’re trying to make a big change or bring something new into your life, the Universe will begin to send you guidance. Watch for synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, repeating numbers and songs are common signs.

Try to curb those judgmental or negative thoughts.

When creating magic you’ll have more chance if you make the decision feeling positive and optimistic. If someone or something makes you think negative, try to avoid them or the situation, or use mindfulness to redirect your thoughts. If you’re going through a rough patch, remember that you can be sad and still genuinely grateful for the blessings in your life.

Keep your intention in mind.

Writing a reminder of your goals in your journal or just talking to a close friend or relative going over your ideas are great ways to stay proactive. This keeps your focus on the prize, so to speak.

Be aware of your claircognizant abilities.

Pay special attention to those thoughts that seem to pop into your mind “out of nowhere” or any large chunks of information that seem to appear rapidly.

Keep your mind focused with rituals.

Rituals work best when you enjoy them, so if you read about a ritual, don’t be afraid to personalise it in some way. With this full moon energy still going strong it’s a great time to start.  Here are couple to get you started!

Create a nature altar.

Go outside and collect anything that your drawn to this can be sticks, rocks, leaves, flowers, find a spot on where you can assemble your altar. Then as you arrange the objects think about your goals and silently ask that the Universe come to your assistance. Leave your altar out for the week, and every time you look at it, thank the Universe for its help with your manifestation goals.

Perform a candle and journal ritual.

Set aside some quiet time say 15 or 20 minutes when you know you will not be interrupted, light a white candle to open your ritual, get out your journal, but instead of writing down what you did earlier in the day or what’s been on your mind, continue to let your mind be blank. Silently ask the Universe or your guides what you most need to know right now about your goals, try to let the ideas and words come through you. This is known as automatic writing.

You should see something written on the page when you finish, hopefully they are things that have never thought of that before. You might see some fears that you were aware of but didn’t want to admit to yourself or others. Once you’re done, sit and gaze again at the candle’s flame, and then blow it out to close the ritual. Be sure to silently thank your spirits and your guides for any ideas or words of wisdom that came through.

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.
