CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Your Guardian Angels Communicate With You — These 6 Subtle Sensations Reveal Their Presence”

Are you trying to connect with your Guardian Angel? Do you feel that you are not able to receive their messages?

Well, the thing is that maybe your Guardian Angel is reaching out to you but you aren’t realizing it. Here are some of the different ways in which your Guardian Angel is trying to send you a message through touch; so you can actually feel these messages as they have a physical manifestation:

1. Embrace Or The Angel Hug:

Sometimes when you are trying to connect with your Guardian Angel, you might feel as if someone is hugging you. Yes, you might feel as if someone is holding your hands gently and giving you a warm loving embrace. Well, that’s a sign that your Guardian Angel is around you and trying to help you out. This usually happens when you are very stressed and tired and the Angel wants to show that they are around you to help you get better. So, it’s their unique way of telling you that you are important to them and thus they care for you enough to give you a warm loving hug.

2. A Warm Feeling:

If you are trying to connect with you Guardian Angel and you begin to feel that the temperature around you is rising, this means that they are around you. Yes, they want to literally make you feel warm and this is one way in which you can realize that they are around you and acknowledging that you’re longing to connect with them.

3. A Current Of Electrical Power:

Sometimes you may also feel a current of electrical power. This also means that they are around you. This electrical power may just affect your body but not in a negative way. It may shock and stun you and it might actually be very powerful. But don’t worry, it is just a sign that your Guardian Angel is around you. They are just making sure that you know and recognize their presence more than ever and this is why they are using a strong sign to tell you about their presence.

4. Angelic Wind Or Breeze:

You might also feel the presence of you Guardian Angel in a very easy breezy way; yes; actually with an angelic wind or breeze around you. The Guardian Angel may just be trying to tell you that they are hearing you and assuring you of their love and affection. Also, the breeze can be a way of soothing you and bringing peace and good wishes in your life. The breeze is a sign of how your prayers are being heard and good things are coming your way.

5. Liquid Sensation:

Guardian Angel may also give you a sensation as if a thick liquid is falling on your body. It might feel like honey and this liquid sensation is also proof that your Guardian Angel is around you and trying to tell you something that you don’t know about.

6. Feeling As If Someone Is Sitting Beside You:

Sometimes you may also feel that someone is sitting with you while you are struggling to connect with your Guardian Angel. Well, that’s none other than the Guardian Angel themselves. It may seem creepy but it surely isn’t. There is no one that you can trust more than your Guardian Angel. So, don’t get uncomfortable or scared if you feel they are around.

MICHELLE MAXWELL: “‘Are You A Good Ghost Or A Bad Ghost?’ — How To Banish Troublesome Household Entities”

I’m a natural ‘ghostbuster’ and never have to worry… my home is always a sacred space without interference. If I want contact I will initiate it… otherwise it’s “Buzz off, Jack!” 👻

Let’s face it, sensing an uninvited presence in one’s home is never a pleasant revelation. We invest a great deal in our homes — financially, personally, and even spiritually — so it’s a bit of an unpleasant surprise to find an additional “guest” at our table.

However, many spectral entities leave remnants of themselves in the world of the living, and more often than not are no cause for concern. Some even provide protection and assistance when we least expect it!

The flip-side, however, is that there are indeed malevolent entities that can take up residence in one’s home and cause a great deal of annoyance, if not pain and outright misfortune. At first it can be hard to differentiate between the two, as it often takes awhile for spectral evidence to mount. Misplaced personal items, broken appliances, and bothersome noises may seem innocent enough or go undetected for weeks or even months before proving otherwise.

So how can you know if your ghostly tenant is worth keeping around or evicting? For starters, pay attention to the signs. Not all entities leave overt evidence of their presence, but you can usually detect subtleties: cold spots in various parts of the house/apartment, the feeling of being watched, and little shifts in the placement of household objects. Pets will often act agitated or avoid going into certain spaces, while some will growl or bark at a pointed spot when seemingly nothing is there.

Conversely, the manifestations may be more severe. You or members of your household may start getting sick for no apparent reason, or become ill-tempered. Appliances may break down and, in extreme instances, objects may be thrown about or smashed. An overall feeling of doom may linger over the place, evoking feelings of fear and despair.

Once you’ve assessed the evidence, you can decide what steps to take from there. If you are fortunate enough to sense that the presence in your home is innocuous enough — if not benevolent — then you needn’t do much to appease them. Simply going about your business and allowing them to go about theirs is usually enough. If you want to make an “official” gesture of acknowledgement and welcome, you can set out fresh flowers or keep a votive candle lit in a part of the home where the spirit is most often felt. If there are particular offerings you feel the presence would like, by all means leave them out as well. Less-is-more gestures are generally preferred by elementals, as excessive attention can disrupt their natural vibrations.

If you feel your household entity is of a more malicious sort, then you will need to take the necessary precautions as soon as possible. Please note: if these steps do not take effect within a week or so, a professional may need to be consulted. Certain energies can be extremely dangerous, and only experienced and reputable practitioners should be called upon to deal with them. If you feel your efforts are not proving successful then do not put your safety at risk!

That said, even less pleasant entities can often be dealt with by employing a few simple DIY measures. Before you do anything else, it is crucial to purify or “smudge” your space. Using sage or palo santo, go from room to room at least once a day and thoroughly seal the windows, corners, and doorways with the smoke. This will immediately cleanse the space and drive away unpleasant energies. You may need to do this as often as it takes before the presence recedes completely.

Crystal gridding has also been proven effective in ridding a home of unwanted energies, as well as barricading against future assaults. There is a wealth of information available on crystal gridding, and it’s advisable to check online or at your local bookstore to find the best selection and layout for your situation. Black tourmaline, smokey quartz, selenite, and amethyst are among the most popular stones used for protection and reinforcement.

A more labor-intensive endeavor may involve doing some research on your home. While certain entities can attach themselves to individuals, following them wherever they go, others are bound to a specific place for a specific reason. If you live in a home with a researchable history, it may be worth your while to see what you uncover. This will also prove beneficial for any professionals you seek the assistance of.

What you absolutely SHOULD NOT do in the circumstances listed above is attempt to use any occult items in which you have no experience or understanding of. Real psychics devote decades to implementing these tools in their work, and a troubling number of cases have been reported where amateur misuse resulted in permanently disastrous results.

Ultimately, your intuition is your best tool when determining the nature of a spiritual presence in your home.

Our fears and imaginations can and do play tricks on us, and often turmoil in one’s personal life can impose itself on the places inhabited most intimately. Try to approach your situation with honesty and a sound mind, and once again, do not hesitate to call in a professional if you feel you are in over your head.

GAIA: “7 Things That Are Blocking Your Spirit Guides”

Your angels, spirit animals and spirit guides in general are supposed to be connecting and communicating with you, offering guidance for your life and acting as a source of light and encouragement. If you aren’t experiencing this, what’s the problem? As it turns out, it’s probably largely you yourself that stands in your own way, as well as the way of your spirit guides! Everything from your attitude to even the things that you eat can affect the connection with your spirit guides.

Never fear, however, there are a lot of things you can do in order to open the channels again. You are the problem, and you are also the solution.

Here are seven common problems that almost everyone faces. Of course, there are many more that you may discover in your own journey, so take these as a beginning point of examination and take a good look at your own heart and lifestyle:

INEXPERIENCE

So you’re new to the spiritual work game. That is no big deal! However, it can trip you up a little if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The best practice is to not do much at all! Keep an open heart and mind, of course, but learn to relax your mind, perhaps through a daily meditation, hold onto your patience and keep your expectations realistic.

You can also practice heightening all of your senses and increasing your awareness. Again, don’t constantly be on the lookout, but instead open the channels of your receptiveness.

DISORGANIZATION

You attract what’s around you. Is your home a big pile of clutter with random objects lost in the fray? Is your desk even visible under those stacks of who-knows-what? The state of your affairs can reflect your heart. This is why space clearing is so important in Feng Shui. Clean space, clean spirit!

That’s the kind of spirit and environment that your guides are attracted to. Make things as easy as possible on them and create the most appealing, welcoming atmosphere to them, and let them get to work.

EXPECTATIONS

Waiting for a gigantic sign with life directions to fall out of the sky and hit you on the head… literally? It’s time to move on and instead focus on your bond with your guides.

You never know how your guides will contact you, and by setting your expectations even really high, you’re putting them in a box and limiting yourself more than anything. Sometimes the gestures will be big and grand; other times, they will be just mere feelings, gentle whispers in your heart or your ears, or a fleeting visual. Sometimes, these signs are even more powerful than a huge clap of thunder!

Find the small signs, and the big ones may or may not come. It doesn’t matter! Once you connect with your guides, you’ll realize that the sign and the journey with the spirits itself is what matters.

IMPATIENCE

If you’re constantly wondering and anxiously waiting for messages from your spirit guides, the internal turmoil and anxiety you’re building up could cause you to miss it all together! Plus, when you’re in this state, you aren’t having faith in your guides, you’re demanding to have your way and your results. Where’s the beauty in that?

Building up your patience also builds your trust in your guides, thus strengthening your bond all the more. When you’re facing challenges, you can still know that your guides have your best interests at heart, and that they will be there for you at just the right time.

When you aren’t looking for it, all kinds of great things can happen unexpectedly. With a stronger bond with your guide, you’ll start to recognize that the coincidences that seem so fortuitously timed are intentional messages and guidance from the spirits who care about you.

DRAMA

The chaos of certain relationships and situations can certainly be the utmost distractions. When you’re constantly squabbling with an acquaintance or trying to make everyone happy, you yourself aren’t happy. You’re agitated, likely closed off, and unfocused. This can make it hard to connect with your spirit guides.

Ask your guides to help you clear your heart. Get rid of the negativity and fear and replace it with the peaceful, loving energy of positivity. Also ask your guides to help point out any relationships that you may have outgrown, ones that are only slowing you down and harming more than helping. It’s okay to trim back relationships that are draining you of valuable emotional and spiritual energy.

While it’s important to still love everyone around you no matter what, it’s your choice who to pour yourself into. The more negative energy you collect around yourself, your friends included, the harder it will be for your spirit guides to connect to you.

FOOD

Humans are clusters of energy waves, moving faster and faster all the time. As a human you have agreed to see yourself as solid forms through consensus reality. Everything you do and think, everything you eat and drink, in fact, everything you put into and around your body effects the overall vibration of your entire being. After all, we are energy, and food is energy for us, thus affecting our energy overall.

Therefore, it is quite essential that you pay attention to the vibrations of the foods you eat. When you eat foods that have a high and rapid vibration, you are more able to hold a strong, healthy, exuberant and joyful state. When, on the other hand, you eat foods of a slower, lower frequency, you lower your vibrations and, wonder why you don’t feel quite so good that day.

Each of us has a signature vibration; each food you ingest contributes to that vibration. Here are some of the foods for lower vibrations that you should avoid, not just for nutrition and toxin’s sakes:

  • Genetically modified (GMO) food, and conventional food that’s been treated with chemicals and pesticides
  • White rice and flours
  • Sugars, sweeteners (artificial etc.)
  • Coffee
  • Sodas
  • Alcohol
  • Meat, fish and poultry
  • Processed, packaged, canned and fast foods
  • Unhealthy oils, like canola, cottonseed, margarine, and vegetable oils
  • Frozen foods
  • Pasteurized cows milk, yogurt and cheese
  • Cooked foods, deep fried foods and microwaving food

OVERANALYZING

Our egos can be one of the biggest trip-ups of all. When it’s chattering away in our ears that it knows best, tell it to be quiet for a bit! When you’re analyzing everything, you can break the connection with your guides. Some of the sweetest moments come when you have sudden clarity and insight that you hadn’t seen before.

Your guides want you to have faith in them, and it also creates the space for all the miracles they want for you. They may not be earth-shattering and crazy every time, but by letting them come to you instead of dissecting every little thing, you can reap their benefits more often and be amazed by their simple beauty.

WES PENRE: “How To Escape Lucifer’s Afterlife Trap”

Ascension Avatar note:  Quoting Lisa Renee, “Please only take what is useful for your spiritual growth and discard all the rest.” 🙂

I can understand if it may sound scary to choose not to go to the Light because many of us are afraid of the unknown.  Whereas, the Light feels “safe” because we’ve gone there so many times, and “everybody else” who went there seems to have done just fine.  However, remember that you are being multidimensional every single night you go to sleep and dream.  This is a taste of what is awaiting after we die — except, after we die, we are in charge of our “dreams” and can create consciously what we create unconsciously during REM sleep.

However, this only gives a partial picture, so let’s get a little bit more into detail about what I have learned recently on the details about escaping the AIF Afterlife Trap once and for all.

Those who have come to the point in their awareness level that they are reading this don’t have to worry about getting “stuck” in the ether and become a “lost soul.”  The reader of this material is far beyond that because you know too much.  Instead, when you die, you will most probably be approached by your guide of guides as usual, and he or she wants to help you “cross over,” and if you allow this, it will lead you through the Tunnel.  In some cases, there are no guides in the beginning, and the Tunnel will open up in front of you, but at a distance.  Normally, souls feel the attraction and gravitation from the Tunnel and start moving toward it, consciously or unconsciously — like a leaf being sucked in by a vacuum cleaner.

Here, I believe, it’s a good idea to put up a list, in order to easier absorb the information I’m about to give you.

Instead of letting yourself be “hypnotized” by its attraction, turn and look in the opposite direction (you will have 360° vision, and you can still concentrate on looking in a certain direction) and move away from the Tunnel (you do this by “thinking” yourself as moving— it’s all about thoughts and intention in this dimension).  Remember, you, as a soul of Fire, are far stronger than the centrifugal force that pulls you toward the Tunnel.  Don’t try to fight it — that’s not the way to do it.  Instead, think yourself away from it!  The Tunnel with the Light on the other side of it is a sophisticated hologram, and all you need to do is to think yourself in another direction, and the Tunnel will fade away.  Soon you will see the Grid as a fuzzy “barrier” in front of you, or above you (there are no ups and downs or left and right in space).  You will also see that it has holes in it — like a Swiss cheese.  Move through one of these holes.

You will now see the Universe the way it is, i.e. you will now be truly interdimensional.  This means you will see a much larger universe than you are used to.  This is possible because you are outside the Grid, and you’re not in a programmed body — you are meeting the Universe as a pure spirit of Fires with an Avatar, which is your mind.  When astronauts are allowed outside the Grid, they are still restricted by their bodies and will remain in 3-D, but on a slightly higher vibration because the Earth is tilted and the Grid is no longer doing its work on these astronauts.  What you experience outside the Grid, as a discarnate spirit, can be quite overwhelming and impressive.  Probably for the first time, you see the Universe as it really is, with the KHAA and everything.  When you read this, you are still limited with your five senses, but a good idea is to prepare yourself mentally for what is out there.  It’s not at all going to be a negative experience, just very different!  You will also see the Space War that is going on in the solar system, and you will notice the soldiers fighting in other dimensions, which you now are going to have access to.  In order to prepare, a recommended reading is my free e-book, Beyond 2012 — a Handbook for the New Era.  There are of course other materials that you can use as well — these papers will also do the job.

As a Fire riding an Avatar, you are now free to go more or less anywhere in the Universe.  I talked earlier about “Universities” — that certain star systems work as universities do here on Earth.  You may go there and explore what they have to offer, to see if it interests you, but the more appropriate or easier way would be to first know what you want to do or what you want to learn.  Let’s say you want to learn about how to build interdimensional space crafts.  Then you think yourself to a university that teaches that, and you will nanotravel there as fast as you think it.  As I see it, you need to concentrate on that thought, so it becomes dominant over your other thoughts at that moment — that’s all you need to do.  I have talked to a few humans who are able to nanotravel — one of them gained the ability after a serious car accident.  He said that we have nothing to worry about — once we’re free from our bodies, we know automatically how to do this.  In the beginning, not only will we be stunned but also impressed.  We will think it’s fun and probably want to play around with it.  The fear and anxiety we may have while in our bodies are gone once we enter the spirit world.  Once you’re at a university, you will meet with star beings who will ask you what you wish to do.  If your aura and your chakras are open like a book, they will already know because you communicate telepathically, but if it’s closed — either because of fear, or intentionally, to protect your thoughts — they will not know.  Once they are told, they will advise you whether you qualify or not.  If you don’t, you can ask them where you should go first to eventually qualify for their dimension of learning. If you want to go to Orion, you think yourself there and you will stand before the “Gates of the Orion Empire,” and a similar procedure will take place.  You may want to tell them that you are a human soul, and you may most likely qualify to get into the higher dimensions of the KHAA, but once “inside,” you will find out which University level you qualify for, depending on your current knowledge as a spirit, what you want to do, and your personality.

You may instead just want to travel around in the Universe as a Soul/Avatar and explore before you decide to find a new “home.”  You will notice that you can think yourself anywhere and you will get there, but also you can create your own environment as you wish — similar to what Q did in Star Trek.  You may want to have fun with that for a while, too, before you do anything else.  Remember that you can’t really get lost because if you don’t know where you are, you can think yourself to be anywhere — even back in the solar system, if you wish.

You will most certainly also meet with other beings as you think yourself away.  You can tell them you’re not interested (in a polite manner), or you can join them.  First, however, feel out their energies and trust your intuition!  If you are still uncertain, ask where they come from and why they want your company.  Always shield yourself with a golden aura by thinking it up around yourself, and make sure not to have any holes in it.  You will find out for yourself that it works!  Remember that just because your creators happen to be Orions, it doesn’t mean you have to go there if you don’t want to.  No one will hold that against you, and you can always go there later, whenever you want to.  You may even choose to join a group of beings you like and co-create an interdimensional reality — either in space, on a planet, in a star, or in a nebula.  The options are endless, only limited by your own creativity.  You will notice that the Universe bends to your will, thoughts, and intentions.

Any of this sounds much better than to be recycled into slavery again, doesn’t it?  We have the Fire of the Mother Goddess, so we are privileged that way — more so than other star races out there.  Those out there who have access to the KHAA (just like you will) can also create without technology, but as a human soul, you automatically have access to the KHAA and to the Orion Empire, unless you’ve done things that are excessively harmful to the Empire, your fellow man, or other star races.  Other star races will have to “earn” their way into Orion, while you can come in without any prerequisites, except for the ones I just mentioned.

What you do miss out on (perhaps only temporary, but still) is the loss of your human body, in case you decide not to reincarnate on Earth again.  In an upcoming paper, I will discuss more about the incredible vessel we call the human body, what it is capable of, and what it can do for you as a Fire/Avatar.  Once that is explained and you want to continue going back to Earth in the next incarnation to inhabit one of these vessels again — this time with a higher level of knowledge — you can.  You don’t have to go into the Tunnel in order to do that.  You can reincarnate on Gaia without “help” from the AIF, but you would still have amnesia.  However, you would operate on a higher level here on Earth than you’ve done so far, and with time, you will expand your awareness and your consciousness even more.  If you choose this path, you will help rebuilding the Library, and the reward will be a body I will be talking about later.  The choice is yours, and there is no right or wrong choices here — it’s entirely up to you.  The only thing I advise everybody to do is to avoid the Tunnel and the Light!

BOB OLSON: “The 7 Most Common Messages From Spirits”

spirit messages (18).jpg

When people are considering getting a reading from a psychic medium, they often don’t know what to expect. If the medium is able to contact their deceased loved one, what kinds of messages from spirits will be sent? Will they be judgmental? Will their message be sorrowful?

Here are seven of the most common messages from spirits we hear from those who have passed during a reading with a psychic medium.

The 7 Most Common Messages from Spirits

 

#1.  “I’m okay.”

Immediately following their passing, people in spirit want their loved ones to know that they are okay — they are happy, healthy, and alive. Mainly, they want us to know that they survived death; that is, they did not disappear but rather still exist, only now in spirit form versus physical form.

#2:  “My suffering ended the second I died.” 

Many people worry that their loved ones continue to suffer from their illness, injuries, or mental anguish after death. Therefore, one of the most common messages from people in spirit is that their suffering ended the moment they left their bodies. Once in spirit, they were free from all human and physical suffering.

#3.  “I’m closer to you now than I ever was before.” 

People in spirit commonly convey through mediums that they can see, hear, and even read their surviving loved one’s thoughts. Consequently, our loved ones in spirit know more about what’s going on with us physically, emotionally, and spiritually and therefore feel closer to us than when they were living in their physical bodies.

#4.  “I’m watching over you.” 

As an expansion of the prior message, our loved ones in spirit commonly want us to know that they are watching over us from the spirit world and guiding us when appropriate and possible. This doesn’t mean, however, that they are constantly hovering over us at every second; but they check in on us regularly and come to our side whenever we think of them.

In this way, they always know what is going on in our lives (our triumphs and disappointments). They are watching when we graduate from college, become a parent, get a new job, and even when we become ill, have an accident, or suffer a terrible tragedy. They do guide us when it is appropriate for them to do so, but we must be open to their guidance by following our intuition and remaining aware of the signs, coincidences, and messengers they send plus the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

#5.  “I was greeted by loved ones here.” 

Our loved ones in spirit commonly want us to know that they were greeted by loved ones who passed before them upon their return to the afterlife. They often refer to this as a homecoming celebration, where family members, friends, and even pets greeted them with love and jubilation.

 #6.  “I am living in peace, joy, and love in the spirit world.” 

Although it is not possible to put into words the blissful experience of living in the dimension of spirit, our deceased loved ones often try to convey to us how wonderful it is. They describe living in the light of the hereafter as feeling welcome, warm, safe, loved, joyful, boundless, liberated, peaceful, friendly, sweet, blissful, radiant, dreamlike, free, and harmonious, to list just a few of the common descriptions.

#7.  “I love you.” 

As simple and basic as this may seem, love is the most important of all messages. Our loved ones in spirit always want us to know that they love us, which also means that they forgive us, they are proud of us, and they want nothing more for us than to be happy.

LJ VANIER: “10 Clear Signs You Are Being Contacted By a Spirit”

indigo_cristal (3)

On the topic of this morning’s ‘ghost’, ‘spirit’ and ‘angel’ visitations post… here’s another worthy article. These sorts of things happen to me all the time… and I do mean… all… the… time… 🙂

Death is not the end. We are all made of energy and when our bodies die, we transform into a different form that is not visible to the naked human eye (at least in many cases). Sometimes, when a spirit leaves its physical body, it takes longer for it to cross to the other side for many reasons. And sometimes, they try to get in contact with us to let us know that they are still with us. There are certain things we can look for in situations like this to see if a spirit is trying to communicate with us. 

  1. Flickering lights

Sometimes when we sit in our room, we notice a few quick flickers of light. Maybe you have already been thinking of your loved one and they wanted to give you a sign that they feel it and they are near you. Or maybe they wanted you to think of them. Usually when this happens, we find ourselves in a sort of intuitive state, as if we simply sensed why the light was flickering. It is because the energy sent us by our loved one affects our thoughts too.

  1. You see a shadow out of the corner or your eyes

We all feel it sometimes. A dark shadow right out of the corner of our eyes and we turn around but see nothing or no one. But there was something there. It’s a strange feeling but it is one of the signs that shows us we are being contacted by a spirit.

  1. You feel an air flow around you

You are indoors but you suddenly feel a flow of air around you. Like a very quick chilling breeze that goes away as fast as it comes. Many people report they feel a change in temperature as well inside their homes when they are contacted by a spirit. Because spirits are a different form of energy, they are capable of causing air flows or changes in temperature when they are around us.

  1. You hear your name being called

Have you ever felt like someone called your name but there was no one around you? Or no one that could possibly know you or call your name? But you can swear you heard it. Sometimes they do more than that, they might say something that is very meaningful for the both of you, or something you would understand that it is coming from your loved one. A much more obvious sign that shows you, you are being contacted by a spirit.

  1. Dreams

One of the most common ways spirits contact us is through our dreams. In the dream state, our subconscious mind becomes more dominant because it is  one of the best times for it to communicate a message to our conscious mind. Since the subconscious mind is alert, it is capable of accepting any form of communication that comes through. This is almost like a portal for the spirits and they can let us know how they are or they can bring a message to us or maybe even warn us for something. Trust your intuition and do not dismiss your dreams. Always find ways to analyze them.

  1. They move small objects

Some spirits are capable of moving small objects. Like a pen right next to you on the desk moves a tiny bit, or a piece of paper suddenly falls on the floor, maybe a glass object cracks suddenly without being touched. Things like this are very common.

  1. We sense a certain smell

A certain smell that makes us think of them, maybe like a perfume or cologne they used to wear. Or the smell of a flower that you or they love very much. A certain smell that will surely give you a sign that it is coming from them to let you know that they are trying to contact you.

  1. Visions

Sometimes we see a quick reflection in the mirror or on the glass when we look through the window as if someone was right behind us. Sometimes we see them right in front of us as a semi transparent being. This is a more developed form of connection but certain spirits are capable of communicating with us like this.

  1. We feel their presence

Sometimes it is just your gut feeling telling you that you are not alone in the room, there is someone else there with you. You might not see any other signs like visions, sounds, smells or movements but you are sure that you are being watched or someone is trying to tell you something. It might be a chilling feeling if you are not used to it but it is also a very common form of communication by spirits because they can reach us through our brain frequency and let us know that they are there.

  1. Numbers or symbols on things

If you ever tried improving your intuition, this is one of the exercises that helps you get to the next level. Paying attention to the signs, symbols and numbers around you. Because they are specifically put there for you to interpret them. Spirits use these signs and symbols as well to communicate with us. When you think of them you might see a sign or a number that is very special for you two, or sometimes the symbol comes before the thought, which is sent by the spirit for us to notice and think of them and know that they are near.

MELISSA VAN ROSSUM: “Are You Being Visited by a Ghost, a Loved One From the Other Side or an Angel?”

ghost (5)

Everyone receives visits from ghosts, loved ones from the Other Side and angels. Even though many of these visits are meant to be comforting, sometimes the presence of an otherworldly visitor can be unnerving and even frightening. Knowing who these guests are, however, and why they’re visiting you can make their visit easier and often, even comforting.

Here are three ways you can tell these visits from one another:

1. Ghostly Visits

Visits from a ghost, or the earthbound spirit of a deceased individual, usually bears several tell-tale signs. First, their presence is typically not comforting. When you’re around a ghost you feel watched – even if you’re alone in the room. You might even begin to feel unexplained nervousness, sadness or depression. You may feel sudden cold spots in the room or, in some cases, you might even see a ghostly human image – if only for a moment. Some people have seen a kind of blur or a flash of movement when no one else is in the room.

2. Visits from Loved Ones from the Other Side

A visit from a loved one who is on the Other Side is a very different experience from a ghostly visit. While you can also feel a cold spot or a temperature shift when a loved one is around, you typically don’t feel nervous or uncomfortable when it happens. Along with the slight temperature shift, you may begin to reflect on memories of that loved one. Our loved ones often bring messages of encouragement when we need it, so you’re more likely to feel loved and comforted when they’re around. When a deceased loved one is around, we often start thinking of them and feeling their presence and reflecting on our memories of them as a result. For example, Tony, a hairstylist, feels his grandmother nearby whenever he is thinking his way through some of his life’s challenges. He smells her perfume, remembers her advice, and begins to feel the comfort she offers him. Visits from loved ones are a very positive, healing experience.

3. Angelic Visits

Angelic visits feel a bit different from when our loved ones visit. There is definitely a shift to a cooler temperature and often a slight breeze. You might even see sparkles of light where they move. Sometimes, because their energy is so pure and their vibration is so high, you can even feel a bit dizzy. Angels are available whenever we need them – they help us ease through conflicts and protect and comfort us through frightening times, though they most often respond to our calls and requests for their help. Angels are present with newborns and small children to comfort and protect and to pass on messages to their parents and caretakers. After my son was born, an angel appeared to me and gave me a message about his life purpose. While she was with us, the air around us felt as though we were on the top of a mountain. Unlike ghosts, an angel’s presence always has a purpose. They often bear a message or ensure protection and because of this you usually feel comforted, assured, loved and happy.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Unleash Your Primal Spirit: Working with Power Animals”

power animals

I truly enjoy spending time with my power animal. My silent friend and I walk, run, play, and dance as we move as one in our instinctually common habitats – strengthening our connection. The relationship between you and your Power Animal is typically a symbiotic one of kinship and shared traits. A strong bond allows you to tap into their primal instincts and powers as you and the animal work as one, growing spiritually. The stronger the connection, the stronger your joined experiences will be amid both the physical and metaphysical realms.

What Are Power Animals?

power animalsPower animal spirits are not perceivable by the traditional five senses, and some of the most well known are Bear, Buffalo, Owl, Eagle, Wolf, Snake, and Rabbit. Power animals are protectors and partners with whom accompany and protect you on daily and take otherworldly journeys. They know their way around and can get you into and out of your destination unharmed.

It is said that you have at least one power animal from birth, and you may actually have several. They may be present simultaneously or guide you individually as you progress along your path with each offering different types of guidance and protection in accordance with your journey. Many are most familiar with Native American Power Animals, but spirit animals animals entities exist in many cultures. Here is a great resource to discover your power animals and birth totem.

Power Animals – Connecting Your Spiritual and Physical Worlds

While not ‘teachers’ in the direct sense of other types of spiritual guides, you have much to learn from your Power Animal – mostly insights into your own character – your strengths, weaknesses, and how to better understand your mind, body, and spirit – all through understanding your animal’s habitual instincts.

Protection – Power Animals excel in journeying, and they will serve you in the physical realm as protectors when you mentally call upon them for assistance. To put things into perspective, you may want to call upon a totem like Bear or Wolf to shield you in dangerous situations, but smaller creatures like Snake or Rabbit could aid you with their hiding or movement abilities. Rely on instincts – know your animal!

Physical & Spiritual Realms – Beyond mere protection on the physical plane, your will likely have shared traits with your Power Animal or Totem. You may find that you prefer warm weather over cold or that you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder when it’s not your season. You may find certain activities and types work preferable. Think you’re not a cat person? Maybe your animal doesn’t care for them either! You may be able to eat very little for long periods as Snake does, or you may find comfort in running with a group like Buffalo or Wolf. Looking inside yourself and realizing your preferences in these realms can help you discover your spirit animal.

The calling of the wild, primordial animal within you may be something you typically try to restrain. After all, many will assume that you are as nutty as a peanut butter cookie if you say you communicate with a Spirit Animal that guides and protects you. However, fostering the bond with your spirit animal is essential. If you don’t spend enough time with them and show appreciation for their insight and protections – just like stones and crystals disappear – your power animal can also abandon you!

Here are some tips Shamans and other spiritual guides recommend for connecting with your Power Animal.

  1. Keep the Identity of your Animal Mum: It can seem overwhelmingly tempting to share your power animal with others. However, knowing the identity of your totem can disclose your own strengths and weakness to others. This could open the door for others to tap into your realm with intent on causing psychic and physical harm to you.
  2. Communicate with Your Animal: Silently asks your friend for assistance when you are weak, afraid, or need counsel. Take time daily to acknowledge their presence when you awaken, to thank them before you sleep, and offer to ‘free’ them to a place of their pleasure while you rest if you feel so inclined.
  3. Learn About Your Power Animals: Get attuned with your animals’ habits – their food sleeping and mating patterns are essential for you to embrace and learn about to keep you totem happy. You’ll also learn more about your habits and how to be tuned into what your ‘gut’ tells you rather than what is the ‘norm.’
  4. Gratitude & Acknowledgment: Take time to honor your animal, whether it be with a photo on your sacred space/altar or through donating or volunteering to causes that preserve their species or habitat.
  5. Dance, Dance, Dance: If you are just now discovering your animal, dance with them right away – when the time of shyness and conscious predispositions may impede your dance. Animals love to play and dance, as it promotes the state of connecting with higher realms, the primordial instincts within us all, and it frees the spirit from the confines of the grounded realm. So, dance away!
