Just ask the students who recently completed the trance (channeling) class that was held in my office once weekly for eight weeks. I’m always so excited for these types of experiences. I love trance, which is when one leaves their physical being and allows a Spirit being to come in and share knowledge.
Before the first night’s class, I skipped around in a fabulous mood. I was so excited to share my energy with the students. That night when everyone was done sitting for his or her turn, students shared gleefully about the portal in the corner of my office. I giggled inside. I’ve been in this space doing readings with thousands of clients for nearly six years. It makes sense that there would be portal in that area.
Backstory: When I first came to Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, it was said by at least one medium that there was a portal in the woods that leads to the park next door. I tried to find it, to no avail.
Portals are available while in sleep state and in meditation. When we go to sleep at night, our Spirit, our Soul, leaves our body and goes elsewhere – through a portal. I believe that those of us who mediate daily create our own portals, which we can turn on and off as we please.
The energy is abundant in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, which has been around since 1894 – lots of portals going on here with all those mediums working from past to present.
During my trance class, we would hear Spirit in the kitchen. Missing letters from my grandson’s ABC puzzle sometimes reappear in there and just the other day my meat thermometer came back in the same spot as one of the letters. I do recall elder mediums telling me that others who worked in this office previously did so in the kitchen. Definite portal.
One night one of the students shared a conversation she had with her husband before leaving the house. He asked, ‘Are you going to class in Cassadaga?’ Her reply: ‘Not so loud the neighbors might hear you.’ She said she gave the Queen’s wave as she pulled out. Of course, the class laughed about it, which assisted in raising the vibration. That night she went into trance (spoke). A couple of other students did so as well.
In the last class, one of the students again noted the portal in the corner and described the energy as she saw it. It was quite interesting for me to hear because when I’m doing readings, I just do. Spirit comes and goes – apparently through the portal.
Bottom line: Anything is possible if you allow for the possibility.
I decided to head to the elections office the other morning to change my party affiliation – I’m in Florida and we have closed primaries. I get that done and head to the coffeehouse to get a chai for myself, another for the office lady (unbeknownst to her) and a coffee for my neighbor.
I’m standing in the parking lot, and I said to myself, ‘OMG, I think I have readings scheduled.’ I forgot to check my calendar. I’m tooling home and sure enough my phone rings at 10:57 a.m. I’m like, ‘Oh, no.’ I apologized and said I would be there momentarily.
I arrived and gave my neighbor her coffee. I decided to give the office lady’s chai to my client. Turns out she loves tea, as do I. She said she’s always bringing people tea when she goes into work, and then asked if I have tried bubble tea, mostly at Asian establishments. I said I would look for it.
I also said that my confusion with the appointment may have had something to do with my massage last night, which had left my body feeling a bit rough. Turns out she had a massage last night too. Her friend who was to come with her and my second appointment couldn’t make it because her body was sore from doing work in her house. Interesting.
One just never knows how the Law of Attraction comes into play. And how we are truly entwined in one another’s life. Incidentally, they had planned this day for nearly two months. I did a phone reading for the second appointment.
I really must wonder if on some level the office lady knew I was bringing her chai and then wondered what happened to it. LOL. I will most definitely think of her again.
I just want to be nice and uplift people when I get a chance. Bring a surprise. Bring happiness. It doesn’t mean my life is always rose-colored glasses, but I try. And you know sometimes those who want to make a difference, get burned because others only think of themselves. Do nice guys finish last? Only if you think so (Law of Attraction).
That woman who brings tea to her colleagues on a regular basis said, ‘It warmed my heart. That was nice’ to receive. I’m sure the office lady would be happy to assist in someone else’s happiness. She knows it comes around, as do I.
Bottom line: There’s no such thing as coincidence. OK, it’s a word.
Spirit is continuously trying to communicate with those of us on the earth place. Spirit certainly knows how to find mediums and chat them up, to share information for those on this side of life or maybe they just want to be heard.
Most people know that finding feathers is a gift from a loved one from above. Finding pennies and other coins are also letting you know that you have had a visit from Spirit. Dreams with loved ones on the higher side are also visitations.
Perhaps, you see something that is only relatable to a certain friend or relative on the higher side of life. Or your keys move from one place to another. Maybe you hear rapping on the wall or someone knocking at your door. When you answer it, no one is there.
When you start coming into your gifts, you may notice subtle occurrences. We all have the gifts, which include seeing, feeling, knowing, hearing, smelling and tasting. It’s up to us as to what we do with them.
You may see something out of the corner of your eye and when you look, there’s nothing there, or you do a double take because you swear you just saw someone standing in front of the building, but then you don’t see it the second time you look.
I just heard a story from a bookstore employee about how her teenaged daughter was washing dishes and when she turned around, she saw spirit leaving the room. She said something to her mother and was told that it was probably grandma making sure you washed the dishes properly.
Hearing is a good one. I believe most people think they are hearing their own inner voice when they are hearing Spirit. Yes, ears ringing could be a medical condition, but it could also be Spirit trying to communicate. Ask them to speak one at time and to slow down.
I recall a pediatrician told me and others a story that she was going to give a certain medication to a child. She clearly heard someone say, ‘No,’ so she decided against it. Later, she learned that it was an incorrect diagnosis.
Do you smell your grandmother’s perfume? A good sign that she’s around letting you know that she’s still there. How about cigarette smoke? Or an aftershave your dad once wore? Yep, Spirit is there.
Knowing is a whole other ballgame. When you know something without physical evidence, you are a knower. Trust the information you have received either through your dream state, connection to source (God) or meditation.
Of course, you have free will as to whether you engage with Spirit or not. Spirit is here to help not to harm. Unfoldment of one’s gifts come in the correct time, Divine time. To work with your gifts, meditate daily and get to a psychic development class.
Bottom line: Believe!
waiting for Grandma to save me. However, I don’t think he really needed saving. My grandson about 15 months at the time ended up standing on top of my desk one day while I stepped away momentarily to brush my teeth.
You can imagine my surprise when I came back into the room. That desk is 2 feet from the ground. I said, ‘Oh my God.’ I realized he was fine, so I chuckled and took a picture. I learned later that my daughter, a medium in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp with an office next time mine, heard the OMG. The laugh a moment later set her at ease.
I had left him to watch his “girlfriend” – Miss Lily. He sat in my chair, which has wheels and swivels (not the one in the pic). It’s 9 inches from the table. Later, I thought how the heck did he get up there without disturbing a thing. He stood on top of my keyboard and laptop, which hadn’t moved. I felt a bit whimsical about it – light and airy. I knew there had to be some type of phenomena, or Spirit involved who helped.
Speaking of Spirit, the other day I took my grandson to the beach where he got to see a fisherman catch and release a 12-inch sand shark – a real life experience. He didn’t sleep on the way home. When we went to take a nap, he kept looking in various directions toward the ceiling. I knew Spirit was there. I tried to telepathically tell them to go, but no. I mouthed, ‘Get out.’ Finally, my grandson zonked out.
And to another point, I saw him do something that my father always did – put his wrist on his hip, not his hand, but his wrist. Is it my dad reincarnated? Maybe, maybe not. Or did he get that part of my father’s DNA?
I am absolutely, positively sure that he was a martial artist in one incarnation. He stands in ready stance and kihaps, a loud sound stating that you’re ready or about to strike. I have also seen him taking a knee, which is a ready stance as well.
Backstory: I used to ‘dream’ that I was practicing martial arts with a man in a dojang, a training hall, on another realm.
Wonder if it was my grandson? I believe if you can think it, it is possible.
