I have to say taking classes in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp can be pretty interesting sometimes. Yes, we learn and most times have a great a laugh. I was in the Mediumship Program for nearly four years all together. Think of the classes – so many. It’s like a college in some ways.
For years, I attended a night class. One time I heard the teacher say he was going to do a workshop for a group of vampires. Someone piped up, ‘the blood sucking ones?’ Hehehe
Just the other night in a healing class, the teacher was talking about a healing that occurred when the recipient started spitting out kidney stones. Cool, right? A student said something about being sure that it wasn’t fillings. LOL We do get a little slap happy at times.
The fillings remark reminded me of a visiting presenter who said he was able to be used as an instrument for phenomena and that crystals would come out of his mouth. I really wanted to go to that one, but couldn’t. I did hear something the next day about how the presenter may have had the crystals in places where teeth once resided.
It’s good to be a skeptic.
Seriously though, classes don’t get any better than in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. During my first healing class of the week, we talked about the eighth chakra – and healing that area, which includes divine love, spiritual compassion and karmic residue. It’s also ‘the gateway to other ideas, concepts and abilities.’ It was a little too personal for me to allow someone in a class to dip into that area of my being, so in the bathroom I wondered how I was going to get out of it. Back in the room, I said something to the neighboring student and another heard us chatting. Finally, I spoke up – not to cause any problems, but I’m not comfortable with others getting into that area. To lighten the mood, I said I don’t even like to wash my clothes with other people’s. The class roared. I got up to close the door that connects to the kitchen and front room because apparently Mrs. Slater, the previous owner of the house, now in spirit, was having a tea party. The teacher did a fabulous meditation to clear our eighth chakra.
And in class last night, we worked with contact healing. At the end of the class two students worked in tandem to heal my areas of concern. I let the students know where I resided in hopes they would continue after class, to no avail. Fabulous healing and energy.
It gets no better than this.
Blessings of Peace and Love!
