Communicating with Spirit

20272152_1752680074749611_1859187205_nPeople often wonder exactly how I communicate with Spirit.  It’s pretty hard to explain but, I’ll do my best.  I receive messages from Spirit with sight, sound, physical sensations, knowledge, and/or smell.

Some of my connections, like my ability to see Spirit, have been around for as long as I can remember.  The way I see them and what they show me has developed over the years.  I don’t just see people but, I’m also shown images, movie clips, snippets from someone’s life and even scenes from my own life from time to time.

When I first heard Spirit, I didn’t know what it was and where it was coming from. I’m sure my husband was sick of me waking him up in the middle of the night asking him if he heard what I heard.  Worst part for him was when I begged him to go through the whole house, checking on the kids and making sure all the doors were locked every time I heard something.  Sorry Honey!  However, like my ability to see Spirit, my ability to hear Spirit has also evolved.  Now, I don’t just hear bumps in the night.  I hear Spirit when they speak to me.

Yes, by physical sensations I do mean I felt something touch me.  Also, I can feel discomfort and/or pressure in areas that have affected Spirit when they were living.  Sometimes the feelings reflect a person I’m sharing messages with.  (Please don’t worry, I don’t ever feel in danger.)

When I say I communicate with Spirit by way of knowledge, what I mean is I just know.  By no means am I saying that I know everything.  However, there are a lot of times that I just know something about someone and there is no way I could.

Scent is not the most common way that I communicate with the other side but, it does happen.  Have you ever smelt perfume that belonged to your long lost grandmother and there is no reason why you should be smelling it? Or have you smelled your deceased grandfather’s favorite flavored pipe smoke with nothing around that could smell like it?  Someone is trying to let you know that they are around.

If you have had any of these experiences, then you probably understand.  If you haven’t, don’t worry, I’ll think of more ways to explain it and I’ll post again soon.  I’ll also share some actually events that happened involving these connections.  Stay tuned!

I See Dead People

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen I decided to come out of the Psychic Closet I had no idea how to go about doing it.  So, I did what most people do, I Googled it.  I found that most spiritual sensitive people were just as stumped as me when it came to telling others about their gifts.  Although I fully believed in my abilities, I was not comfortable using words like “psychic” and “medium” when describing myself.  Honestly, I’m still getting used to it.  So, how do I tell them?  Well, I prayed for help.

Spirit helped me in ways that often made “coming out” easier for me.  Some people found out about my gifts because I had messages for them from their loved ones who have crossed over.  For example, a woman decided to join a home business I was a part of.  She invited me to her house to help her understand the company website.  When I was there, Spirit was active and definitely had something to say.  I didn’t tell her though because I didn’t know her well enough to know how she would react.  However, Spirit had other plans.  I was given a message for this woman that was repeated to me over the next week.  It go to the point that it was driving me crazy.  So, I called her and told her about my gift and the message I had for her.  Luckily she was very open-minded and believed in people having gifts like mine.  She was so grateful for me being courageous enough to share her message from Spirit.  Soon after coming out to her, I began meeting with her, her family and her friends.  That led to me getting requests from people I didn’t know.  That is when I knew it was time to tell my family and friends who were not aware of me being a Spiritual Sensitive.  However, I still wasn’t sure how to tell them.  So, I listened to Spirit and told people when it felt right.

Here’s a great example of knowing when it was right:  I have an amazing, long-time, childhood friend that I had to tell over the phone because she lives overseas.  Somehow, one of our phone calls went into the direction that allowed me to work in Spirit.  That led to me “coming out” to her.  She is skeptical and I knew that it would affect our conversation.  However, she is totally supportive of my gift and has only shown me love and kindness.

My husband and I decided together when to tell family members that didn’t know.  We knew that some of them do not believe in “this stuff” but, out of respect we felt we should tell them ourselves before they found out from others.  We weren’t surprised when some doubted everything we said and even suggested medical attention.  I told them “You do not need to believe in me or even support me.  That’s not why we’re telling you.  We wanted to tell you ourselves because we didn’t want you to hear about it from someone else.”  They shrugged their shoulders and moved on with the evening and never mentioned it again.  This is completely fine.  I never want to shake anyone’s faith or try to convince people to believe in me.  Either you do, or you don’t and I’m fine with both as long as you show me the same respect I show you.

So, when you decide to come out of the Psychic Closet, take your time and pray.  Ask God for help.  Expect that some people will think you are nuts, some will support you, some will fear you and some will reject you.  But, as long as you are strong in your faith and you believe in yourself, you’ll be fine.

Feeling Blessed

I was recently asked if I ever feel blessed to have my gift.  If I was asked that same question a few years ago, I would have immediately said “NO!”  I felt cursed most of my life seeing and hearing things that I couldn’t explain.  When I shared my experiences with others, they thought I was crazy.  So, I began to see myself as crazy too.  However, now, I see my sensitivity to Spirit as a blessing in so many ways.  First, I believe it’s my gift from God, no matter what others say.  Second, I have met so many wonderful people thanks to my ability and gained so many great friendships too.  Third, I’ve received overwhelming LOVE since I’ve embraced my spiritual connections.  Let me explain…

I am amazed that God has chosen to give me to receive the ability to connect with spirits.  ME?  WHAT!?!  I know, right?  I’m just a girl from Hawaii who is living out her dream of marrying the love of her life and raising our awesome kids.  Now that I’ve shared my gift, some call me “The Stay-at-Homeblessed Medium” and others call me “The Psychic Housewife”.  Hahaha!  Crazy, right?  I’m still wrapping my brain around it all.  God gives us each a gift to share with others.  Yes, you too have a God-given gift.  No, my gift isn’t an amazing singing voice (don’t ask me to prove it, you’ll regret it).  My gift definitely is not genius (which is obvious each time I try to help my kids with their homework).  However, God did gift me with the ability to communicate with spiritual beings.  I definitely feel blessed, never worthy but, always blessed.   

Second, my spiritual gift has helped me make some awesome connections and meet wonderful people.  Sure, some people are drawn to me just because of my gift.  But, I’ve made some great friends thanks to my abilities.  I’ve been able to find likeminded people who share in my beliefs and some even have similar experiences.  There’s nothing better than finding your tribe.  Many of my new friendships will last a lifetime.

Third, the love I get and feel because of my gift is overwhelming at times but, in a good way.  It is love after all.  When I found God and later accepted this unbelievable gift from Him, the love I felt and continue to feel from Him, is unconditional and endless.  God has this love for all of us.  We just have to find our way to Him.  That love is something I hope everyone will find one day.  But it’s not just God’s love that I’m honored to experience but, it’s also the love I witness when I connect people with their departed loved ones.  I am grateful to share in the experience of seeing love cross over from the spiritual world to the physical.  I’ve seen, first hand, that love never dies.  How awesome is that!  Who wouldn’t feel blessed?

Life is all about perception.  My abilities haven’t changed but, how I view them has.  Keeping my gift hidden just enforced that “crazy” feeling.  Sharing my gift has brought me so much happiness.  Embrace your God-given gifts and share them, as we are meant to and you too will feel blessed.
