As a psychic medium, I am open – wide open. I can see, feel, know and hear even when I don’t try.
I have to say that my road trip back from Maine was a much more pleasant experience than going up. I took a different route, which included a few hundred miles between myself and ‘the perfect storm’ – Boston, NYC, Philly and DC.
It turned out that it didn’t matter how far away I was from those cities. I could still feel the collective for hours as I drove by them. This time I had a little more sleep, plus it was during the day. I was more mindful of what I allowed in, something learned early on in mediumship development classes. It’s a must learn – turning off one’s gifts.
Backstory: One teacher shared that she would open and close a current on stage in her mind’s eye to turn on and off her gifts. Another teacher shared that flipping a light switch on and off would be another way.
Contrary to what I can imagine you see on the television psychic mediums do not walk around wide open all day. I cannot even imagine. Insanity is what that would be.
I’ve been sitting in development circles since 2004, doing readings in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp since 2016 and teaching since 2018. I have learned to not allow the outside world in. Still, I feel or know on some level.
Interesting enough when I came upon Savannah and Jacksonville it felt more like home. I forgot how big of a city Jacksonville is since I drove through it in the middle of the night the first time. Still, the vibration was calmer than ‘the perfect storm’ even during the morning rush hour.
I guess it makes sense since I’ve been in Florida for more than half my life. I always have said that Florida is a country of its own. When I first came here, the slower pace was odd but now cherished.
Yes, living in Mayberry (Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp) is a quietude I can truly appreciate.
No matter what is going on in your life you too can find your calm. Go inside. Breathe. Allow it in. You can do it. Flip that switch!
Find your Mayberry!
