The Spirits of Healers

For those of you who are regular readers, you know that I am always on the look-out for new situations where I may be able to work on my psychic/mediumship development and discern for myself “just what is possible.” What a wonderful and fortuitous event to be asked to observe a handful of healers as they practiced Reiki and other energy healing modalities a few weeks ago!

With a massage table set up in the area where I also hold my weekly Development Circle groups, the healers remarked how “charged” the environment was. That was exciting, as not all the ladies considered themselves psychic, but each could feel how the energy of the space was unique in comparison to other areas of the house. It was a great confirmation to what myself and others in my Circle feel when we get together and open up the room for Spirit.

On this particular evening, the group of energy practitioners began with an opening prayer, at which point I flipped my psychic senses on and could see a beautiful field of light envelope the table and everyone standing around it. They each took turns being a recipient on the table while the others placed their hands over them; sometimes touching, sometimes not. No matter what the case, I could occasionally see waveform patterns emanating from the practitioners’ hands or see an energy field undulate like water around the recipient. This was incredibly exciting, because I don’t usually “see” things like that while working!

As the night progressed, I circled the healers as they worked and was amazed to receive quite a bit of information – stuff I don’t feel I normally perceive, such as spirit guides. On several different occasions, I could detect the presence of higher energies connecting up with the healers as they worked. In one instance, I saw a spiritual helper standing behind one of the ladies, and this helper kept moving his left arm in a crooked fashion. I first thought, “Are you trying to tell me you have an arm problem?” He shook his head “no.” Then I mentally asked “Are you telling me the healer has an arm problem?” Again, no. And then it happened – the healer moved her arm in the same crooked motion the helper had shown me to reposition her hands elsewhere on the recipient’s body. In other words, the spirit helper was relaying to me how he was assisting the healer in directing position and energy.

The more I watched, the more intriguing it became to see and feel multiple spirit guides connecting with the workers and guiding them through the energy. It was also interesting to note that when people switched positions – going from healer to recipient – how different the energy shifted. This, of course, is quite logical as each person would have need of a different type of healing in comparison to another. But it’s one thing to left-brain analyze that notion and another to feel that energy as it happened. What a trip!

Of course, the night wasn’t all about spirit guides. With the type of energy being expressed (I think of it kind of like candy), and since it was also in the same location as my Development Circles, there were those deceased friends and relatives who wished to take advantage of the energetic space to get their messages across from the Other Side. At one point, all of the ladies’ grandfathers entered at once, so I went around the group like a merry-go-round, as each grandfather relayed a past historical memory demonstrating the survival of their consciousness with an overall group message of love and support. Mini-readings occurred throughout the evening, eventually making the room feel very crowded – literally stuffed with spirits. There were guides, past loved ones, and even other spirits who could use the healing energy. The most vivid imagery was when the ladies were “billowing” the healing energy across the recipient. In one case, I clearly saw several hands reach in from surrounding spirits and obtain a dose of that spectacular power. I can only surmise that not only does the healing energy interact with the body/aura of the recipient, but also with surrounding souls who might like a taste of it themselves. It didn’t seem like they were stealing anything, but rather taking advantage of any excess.

All-in-all, the psychic senses had a great workout and it provided the healers with validations from their guides and relatives, which on some level they could already feel, but had not (to my knowledge) been directly told.

I am incredibly grateful for the experience and I look forward to observing future healing gatherings. For those of you who have never had a Reiki or other type of healing-energy session, I highly recommend it, just from what I have observed. Of course, I was placed in the role of recipient and could feel the energy waves ride over and through my body while lying on the table, but I wasn’t psychically open to anything else (I wanted to enjoy the moment instead of receiving messages). Nevertheless – if you’re working on developing your intuition, psychic senses, or just wanting to feel energy, it’s definitely worth hanging around healers. You’re guaranteed to experience something magical!

Elevators Revisited!

In an earlier blog post, I mentioned how I use the elevators at City Hall as a way of working my precognitive abilities. I visit this location every day and am always carrying correspondence that requires me to travel to an upper floor. The elevator bay has three doors and it is always a test for me to determine which one will open, more often before I press the call button. In the past, I used to receive the precognitive answer in my mind’s eye or feeling it somewhere on my body. Eventually, I had “mastered” the ability to where I could predict which door would open before arriving at the building!

Eventually, the elevator tests began exhibiting what scientists studying ESP have called “the decline effect.” This is when the participant has done so many trials that their scores start to diminish. This is because the test had become too “routine,” the novelty had worn off, or somewhere in the person’s consciousness they felt they had “done it enough.” Indeed, when my scores started to decline, I noticed I was confused. I wondered if whatever I was seeing and feeling was simply my consciousness recalling results from the past and hoping to superimpose them on the present. Trust in my psychic ability became less and less in determining which elevator door would spring open, so I simply put the tests aside.

But “seeing” and “feeling” for psychic information aren’t the only routes to gaining knowledge. As I stood in front of the bays a few weeks ago, it dawned on me that I could use them to help me develop another form of psychic ability: clairaudience. This is when you “hear” your answer, instead of seeing it and feeling it. So I tried it. I completely ignored my visual and feeling centers and paid close attention to what I was hearing inside. I distinctly heard a hard “T” sound, which I interpreted as “Two.” Lo and behold, Door 2 opened. On my next trial, I heard an “Nnnnnn” sound, which to me is the dominant phonetic sound in “One.” Swoosh! Door 1 opened.

On that particular day, I had three different floors for a total of four trials (three floors, plus the ride back down). This equates to twelve possible outcomes, with only four being correct. I’m not a mathematician, so I have no idea what the odds really are, but I decided to log my hits and misses nonetheless. I figured if I were getting more hits than misses over the long-run, then that would show statistical evidence for precognitive functionality.

So far, my log covers ten days for a total of 39 trials. Out of those trials, I have correctly received the elevator door 25 times. When I divide my outcome with the trials, my percentage rate is 64% - an excellent score scientifically for saying that I have gone beyond chance average – at least for 10 days. Ultimately, hundreds to thousands of trials would be needed to justifiably validate the phenomena for real scientific scrutiny. Like I said, I am not a mathematician, so my scoring could be potentially higher or lower, considering each trial needs to account for all the possible doors available and I am just simply counting hits and misses for one event – either I got the door or I didn’t.

When it comes to the misses, I have noticed that some have been the result of distraction. The upper floor offices have windows that look out onto the elevator bay, so it’s hard for me to relax and receive information if I think someone is watching from their cubicle. I can’t imagine how goofy it would be to see some guy staring at the elevator doors for a minute or two before punching the call car button, cocking his head and darting his eyes to hear that inner voice. (Keep in mind, less than a handful of people at my job know I am a psychic medium. And none of them work at City Hall). On a few occasions, even though my clairaudience was inaccurate, my clairvoyance was spot on. That is, I might have thought I heard my clairaudience telling me “three” for door three, yet my clairvoyance clearly showed me Door 1 and was correct. In those cases, I jotted my score as a miss, as I am specifically working on clairaudience.

The other thing I have discovered in this process is that trying to “precog” which elevator door will open really has no bearing on my skills as a medium, per se. In mediumship, the spirit connected to the sitter supplies you with the information; in precogging an elevator, I am not in touch with spirit, but rather my own consciousness reaching out through Time. I think there are some related factors – such as being present in the Now moment and paying attention to what is coming through your awareness – but I have noticed a huge difference in functionality. When spirit communicates, the spirit is actively trying to engage my consciousness, and likewise, I am engaging theirs, and so the information transfer has the combined effort and intention of us both. Precogging an elevator door does not. The only intention, the only energy being given to the exercise is my own; I am not receiving help from spirit – there is no other consciousness helping to shape the outcome. This is a huge difference (and no wonder why I have so many misses compared to the hits! It’s so much better when spirit is actively engaged).

One might be compelled to say “Why not ask spirit to give you the answer for which elevator door?” There are really two reasons. 1) I prefer to engage spirit when I have a sitter present, as my left-brain prefers the identification process to be validated; only a sitter can assist with that; and 2) Without connecting to spirit, I can still learn to develop the inner senses and feel proud of these accomplishments – they are a testament to learning more about interaction with my own soul and my capacity to become better aware of my eternal nature through Time and Space.

Time to go stand in front of some elevators …
