Being a Psychic Person

Over the years I have had to deal with some varied preconceptions about who I am, because I have a Psychic ability.  For the longest time, it really got to me that for the most part, people thought I was someone who had no grounding in reality and that I was making my gifts up…It was so difficult for me to fathom why, anyone would want to make a claim that they have these gifts when if they don’t, people will find them out and make their life hard.  Why on earth would you do that?  I mean, really, you are opening yourself up to so much scrutiny and criticism.  There is a massive negative stereotype out there about the humble spiritual practitioner.

In the beginning, when I first became a Professional Psychic, I had to ‘come out’ in the same uncomfortable way that many of my Gay friends have had to ‘come out’ with their families.  I had to endure the leering and the jokes.  I found myself a minority in a world of professional people, who secretly came to see me for my services, but made out to others that they did not believe.

Presenting HandsThen there were the BBQ’s and the party’s where there was the inevitable question asked of me…’so, what do you do?’  I quickly learned to say Civil Celebrant and not Clairvoyant.  Because if I did tell them that side of my profession, they would immediately put their hand out and say Read my palm or tell me something about myself.  I was there to socialise, not work and I’m not a Palmist, though I am fascinated by it, I haven’t learnt all there is to know about that yet.  So, I’d make a joke and try to change the subject….  Some would say ‘oh, you are one of Those’…like I was a Leper and then there are the ones who think I will know what has been going on in their life just by standing next to them and they think I have read their mind; or the ones, who, (if they’ve found out, what I do first and I ask them, what they do) laugh at me and tell me I should already know, because I’m Psychic… So, I’d avoid talking about me at all and try to get the other person to talk about themselves instead.  Thus saving myself the social awkwardness, of finding myself the centre of attention and being looked upon as a novelty side show, or a person to be feared.  I am neither, just a Woman trying to make a living.

It took me around 5 years, before I was totally comfortable in my own Profession.  I found that being on this path was exciting and soul satisfying.  I found that I was helping people in ways I hadn’t imagined I’d ever do, often learning a life lesson and literally the next day going to work and teaching my hard earned wisdom to a grateful client.  I don’t dressed as a Gypsy or as a Fortune Teller.  I don’t use smoke and mirrors and I don’t have catch phrases, like ‘all is good in the world and the oceans are still’…I just get the message and deliver it.

I have, at times tried to get away from my profession and start a new…I’ve had several career crisis and no matter how hard I have tried, I still end up back at this profession.  In the end I just gave up the fight and embraced my Life and who I am.  I have no shame in what I do anymore, not, in fact for quite some time.

Woman Feeling FreeSince I began to really let go of how I perceived others thought of me, I have felt a relieving freedom within my soul.  To my delight, I have connected with many other people who are also Energy or Spiritual Practitioners.  People who see me as valued and important in the World.  People who show me respect.  It is from their view of me, that I have taken comfort.

For many of you who listen in to my Radio Station (A1R Radio – http://www.ask1radio.com) and others like it, who are not Spiritual Practitioners, people like me may seem mystical and far-reaching.  We may seem separate from you and a little scary.  Let me assure you we are just trying to make it in the World, just like you.

Personally, I have to get myself into the zone of doing Readings or being outwardly spiritual with another person.  I have learnt not to have it open at all times; so if I meet you in the street, I’m not picking up on whether or not you just broke your diet or if you forgot to flush the toilet this morning.  In fact, I don’t really want to know, though rest assured I do care about you.  I have my own set of issues and problems to deal with, and more often than not, when I’m not in my Reader Zone, I’m thinking about them.  I’m thinking about picking up my kids, or what I’m going to make for dinner…just mundane stuff, like everyone one else.

Should you come to me for a Reading, I will be in the zone.  But even then, I will only be given the information that is most suitable for you to hear at that time in your life.  If you are having an affair, for example, and it’s not the life lesson you need to deal with just now, I’m not going to pick it up…I’m going to focus on what your Guides are guiding my mind to see.

I am an energy Reader, not a mind reader…I pick up on your energy and I get messages from your Aura, I get messages from your Guides and Angels and I get messages from mine.

Spiritual Work is sacred and special.  It is not for everyone and if someone is called to do it, they will find it is extremely rewarding.   I feel it is about time that the greater public be aware that people like me are not something to fear or to mock.  We are The Seers; we have the gift of foresight and of communion with Spirit.  We are Spiritual Teachers and in that sense, we deserve the same respect of any Rabbi or Priest.  We are after all, here to do God’s work and to help heal the World of Humans.

Psychic People enrich our culture and are not to be feared.  Next time you meet someone who is on this path, remember to afford them the same respect you expect them to afford you.

The difference between Psychic Powers and Spiritual Gifts.

Spiritual GiftsWhat is the difference between having Spiritual gifts, or Psychic Powers?  I am frequently asked this question by  my clients.

In my mind, psychic powers are the basic platform for  spiritual gifts.  What makes the difference between them?   Between being raw psychic or the deeper spiritual, the answer  dwells in the heart of the holder of the gifts.    Most higher  creatures are Psychic.  Because these creatures have Instincts and the ability to communicate via Telepathy.  Telepathy is the basis of Psychic abilities.  The Power of the Mind to communicate with others via mind to mind contact.  This happens all the time in the wild.    How else do the Wolf Packs in Canada hunt?  They can’t exactly call out, ‘hey Frank you fall to the back, Gertrude, you sneak around the side and I’ll surprise them from that bush over there!’  No way, they communicate via body language, vocal noises, scent and telepathy.

TelepathyJust like Animals, Humans too communicate via body language, vocal noises, scent and telepathy.  You ever heard the expression “you could cut the air with a knife” that expression comes from the awareness of the atmosphere another person’s mind is creating.  They are expanding their aura with messages in thought form to anyone who comes close and that message is – I am not happy!  You may also have heard people say that someone’s house has a lovely feel to it.  That is because that person has enriched their surroundings with their feelings of love and happiness.  The thought energy has infused into the air and furniture, it has coloured the home with a light that cannot be replicated by the Sun or by light bulbs.  It is the light of the Mind and Heart.

Psychic gifts range from the ability to See, hear, feel or smell and sometimes taste Spirit energy.  You could have the Psychic gift of Prophesy or of Healing.  You may be able to perceive energy at a much higher vibration than others and so, be able to see Auras.  Or you may have the ability to connect with another’s energy and gather information about them.  Of course you may have a combination of any or all of these gifts.  I have a combination of them, too.

So the Psychic gifts are there, but as I mentioned, they don’t become Spiritual gifts unless there is something special in the heart of the beholder.  So how is that?  Well let’s say that my neighbour, Mrs Potts is Psychic, but if she uses her gifts for her own gains and not for the help of others, her Psychic gifts will remain stunted.  She will never feel them transform into a higher vibration.  Not that Mrs Potts would do that, but you get the idea.  I believe we all have Psychic Gifts , but only those who are of a kind heart and who use their gifts to benefit Humanity, experience their Psychic Powers in the heightened state of Spiritual Gifts.

We could look at it this way.  You take two living people.  On the same day they both die.  One chooses to stay in the Astral and remain on the Earth Plain, the other turns and trusts and goes into the Light.  Both are deceased, but one now has to fight to survive, having to turn to haunting the living to regain energy, while the other is powered by the source, and only returns to the Earth plain to Guide and Love the Living, having no need to take from them.  So we could say that the person who is in the Astral is in his basic Ghostly form and the person who is in the light is in his higher Spirit form.

Or another way to think on it is that if  we can see that two living people who have the same Psychic gifts can be powered in the two different fashions..  Those who choose to use their gifts to only serve themselves and who are afraid to Trust in God, must always be bound to a more difficult, lower  vibration.  They must find ways to compensate for the holes in their energy and in their  abilities. Yes, they may become powerful, but at what price?  Yet the person who uses their gifts for the benefit of others, may still go through a time of difficulty with their gifts, but they end up powered by The Great Spirit of Life, by all of the Universe, they are enlivened by their abilities and they become stronger.  Their abilities become easier to access and the experience is that of a much higher vibration.

Thus I think of it as Psychic is the base of the knowledge, Spiritual is the filler and the cream.

Being Psychic is everyone’s gift.  But being Spiritual, is the higher vibration of Psychic  and that is only reserved for those who wish to do good in this World.  Is that you?  If you are willing to use your gifts to help others, in time, you will feel amazing.   Remember also, that what you put out there is what you will get back, so while you are using your Spiritual gifts to help Humanity, others in turn, will use their spiritual gifts to help you!  It really is that simple and that rewarding.

Honour

Honour

In our daily lives we can find ourselves distracted by the mundane and routine issues we come across. It can take our minds away from centre and make us feel listless and grumpy. It is in those times that we need to find the self awareness to remember to keep focused on the prise. Whatever that goal you have in mind is. It must be a light in your mind while you get up early, still tired and feed the kids, do a load of watching and get ready for work, while you are driving and then working and when you come home to eat and relax only to do it all again tomorrow.
The feeling of striving for something gives life some purpose and some direction, but when we look closely, what is it that is underpinning the heart’s intent? It is essentially that which underpins all the good in this world. I am speaking of that which is Honour. For honour to yourself is why you strive for goals and make achievements and it is honour to your loved ones that compels you to help them and care for them. It is honour to your fellow Humans that guides you to trust in others and to enjoy their company and to respect them. For in order to give reverence to Life, one must first give honour.
I groom myself, therefore I give myself honour. I present myself to others well groomed and so I give them the honour of my seeing them to be worthy of me taking such an effort to be in their company. I give myself honour, by listening to my inner feelings and allowing myself to say no or yes, as per what feels right to me. In doing so, I set boundaries for others to respect about me, so as they can feel comfortable knowing where they stand and how it is best to interact with me.
I give honour to life by taking the time to love the life I have been given and to teach my children to love their lives also. I honour my planet by marvelling at her creatures and learning about them, so I may take my part in being a caretaker of this Earth, just as we all are as Humans.
I honour my parents, by respecting their opinions and listening to them talk about their lives, for they have passed on many skills to me, that I have in turn used to raise my children. Our Parents are the champions of our lives, when our lives are at their most vulnerable, for that, they must always be honoured.
And I honour myself by believing in myself and my opinions and by allowing my mind to expand and learn from the beliefs and opinions of others. For it is only in the sharing of information and experiences that we can grow closer to the Source of Life that so many of us worship, that which some call God, and I call The Great Spirit.
Honour is the ethic which underpins love and respect, truth and reason. Without honour, much of the achievements of others would go unnoticed and left in despair. Honour gives us light and light empowers us to grow. If you are a spiritual seeker of the enlightenment of God, then remember that in your daily life, by having a lifestyle of Spirituality and by serving others you too are giving Honour. For there is honour in service to others and in consciously choosing this lifestyle you are living in honour.
