I’m several weeks into my online classes, two beginner and one intermediate. They are going extremely well. Students are developing their gifts quite nicely. I love hearing their experiences, plus teaching is so rewarding.
Two Sundays ago I noticed the Skype connection wasn’t the greatest. I thought perhaps it was because someone had an older computer. A week later I realized that Spirit was trying to come in through the electronics. It was exciting. When I mentioned it to the students, they were amazed. I couldn’t believe it took me two weeks to figure it out.
Backstory: I have a couple of friends and know of other people who are big into the idea of Ghost Hunting. They use Spirit boxes, a radio with a frequency scan mode to detect electronic voice phenomenon, and other gadgets. I’m not a real big fan of it. My thought is that people who use these devices are trying to take a shortcut to communicate with Spirit, not put the work in.
In my class Thursday, I hoped so much that Spirit would try to come through and communicate. The line was clear as a whistle. I shared with the students what was occurring during the Sunday class. We couldn’t hear specific words, but knew it was definitely Spirit. Everyone was fascinated.
As the class progressed, one of the students shared that her gift for hearing Spirit, Clairaudience, was coming to the forefront. She clearly heard someone yell her name while she was outdoors at home. She went to a couple of neighbors to ask if they heard the phenomena. They had not. It’s good to be skeptical. In the end, she knew it was Spirit and she clearly heard it. She was delighted as was I.
Spirit did not disappoint Thursday night with phenomena, though. As the students were giving one another information, my phone, which sat at the side of my laptop, turned on and started recording my words. I did not say, ‘Hey, Siri.’ Being in an altered state teaching class, I checked with the students. They confirmed. I was pleased something occurred.
I cannot wait for the Sunday class. I hope Spirit will provide another show. Maybe this time we’ll be able to make out the words. One could change their mind based on experiences. It makes it real. I still do believe the best way to communicate with Spirit is through Mediumship.
The bottom line is when you have your first experience with phenomena, it becomes real. Sure, at first you’ll try to explain it away, but eventually you will have come to terms with it because Spirit will continue to bring it until you are unable to explain it away.
Blessings of Peace and Love!
