Understand your spirit connections with psychic medium Lillyanne
If you’ve ever received a message or a clear signal from the other side, this has most likely come from a loved one or a personal spirit guide who counts looking over you as part of their spiritual purpose.
It’s those bonds of the heart that continue to connect us with those we love most, even after they’ve departed. Getting a message from a late family member, or even seeing their signs, can be overwhelming, relieving and comforting all at once.
Accept their presence
If you are in tune with your psychic nature, you may at times cross paths with a spirit whose energy is unfamiliar to you, and this can naturally come as a shock. The most important thing to know is not to be afraid. You are an eternal spiritual being too, and you are merely perceiving what’s already there. The presence of ghosts in our world is as wholly natural as the presence of trees, birds, and animals. Just like the living, the vast majority of spirits are not harmful; they may be shy, curious, or perhaps bold enough to approach you, but this only means they’re taking an interest in your presence, just as a living person might if you bumped into them. Mediumship isn’t only about seeing that spirit is there, but also understanding what they’re trying to communicate with us through their unspoken signs.
Be in control
If you encounter an unfamiliar spirit or feel that one is present near you, look out for a shimmer of colour around them. This is their aura and it will give you a glimpse into the type of person they were on the earth plane. You can try communicating with them by asking them for their name, what they’re looking for, and if they have anything to tell you. Remember in all your dealings with spirit, that you are the magician, the creator, the one who holds the key to the spirit world in that moment. Spirit will not impose on you without your permission. If ever you find yourself growing uneasy, keep your voice firm and clear and tell (don’t ask) them to depart – your wishes will be respected.
Access your inner medium
1 Select the Magician tarot card from your favourite deck. Place it on your altar or workspace and light a white or purple candle behind it. Close your eyes and visualise the flow of energy through your third eye chakra.
2 Affirm: “I am opening a door that I may close at any time. This door is sealed against all those with negative intentions. I invite all spirits with positive intentions to make themselves known to me.”
3 Pay attention to your surroundings. If the candle flame jumps and flickers, or the air around you grows cold, these are some signs that spirit has come through to you. You may establish communication if you would like to do so.
4 When you wish to close the connection, thank spirit for their time, bid them farewell and extinguish the candle.
