Paranormal Consultations verses Investigations.
As some of you know I am primarily a Rescue Medium, someone who has the ability to communicate with locations, and things that fall into the paranormal category. I have seen a definite increase in the demand for this type of service lately – more and more people are having experiences and more and more people are coming out claiming to be investigators in the paranormal.
I come from a Roman Catholic background where there is good and evil, heaven and hell. Duality and the fight against it is the basis of this belief. My Grandmother on my father’s side was one of the individuals called when an exorcism was performed in her area of Winnipeg Manitoba. So when I began this work in my late teens/early 20’s I took a hard line with being’s I "believed" (at that time) to be on the demonic side. Acting as a medium, I am just the communicator and I work with spirit guides and helpers. In many cases in the beginning, with the help of those on the other side, many energy beings on the slower lowered side where dealt with in a RC manner. Banished, sequestered and in some rare cases demolished.
Thirty years have gone by since I began this work. When I started this was not popular, people didn’t talk freely of their experiences and those who did were looked at with raised eye brows. Denial of the paranormal was common. I usually went into to people places and lives to find that there was things going on in many levels – not just the spiritual. That has not changed. What has changed is the media coverage of investigators who document the details of their work.
In the past back in the roots of spiritualism were groups of rescue workers who used to meet to take responsibility for the astral realms, doing rescues, clearings and healing - helping people and energy forms to cross over. You are hard pressed to find these groups these days. It is a rare thing indeed to find someone who can teach how to do rescue work.
When I see programs on TV, posts or blogs on investigators who go in and purposely provoked and man handle spirit and energy beings these days I cringe. Yes, that is close to what I used to do but it is not what I do today. My approach is non-confrontational.
I really believe that energy follows thought, and we are the creators of our reality. Our culture at times can be a little obsessive with its pursuits. Sending your energy in an irresponsible way into the paranormal will create a reaction. All these investigators, and thrill seekers are feeding there energy into the possibilities of what exists. More evidence is showing up, more people are having experiences, more negative energy is building up in the astral. The result is going to be the creation of some pretty demoniacal energies – just because of how many people are focused on them being there!
In my thirty years I have had less than a handful of lowered / slowed energy forms where I felt overwhelmed and in trouble. Fear is a huge issue and a lot of time is spent alleviating fear in others. I have never met anything I would even term demonic and the rare cases (two in total) of possessions I have encountered turned into the opposite – obsessions. An Obsession is where the human has actually latched itself to the belief that there is a spirit or entity that means them harm and has attached itself to them, causing behavior abnormalities. Obsession is what I see most times when I review the famous possession cases too – 99% of the time.
I have dealt with a lot of elementals, misunderstood energy forms, injured earth energies, and beings who are overly protective and come across as ugly because of their needs. Threatening is the best way to bring out the worst in anything.
Beliefs are so important! If you believe in evil, and the duality of the universe that is going to be what you find. With my change in methods over the years the thing I have done is "look at the bigger picture". Just because I see, sense, or hear something that makes me react in a negative way does not mean it was negative before my reaction. In fact when I get myself under control, let go of judgements and use discernment instead – I usually have a completely different experience in the end.
Here is a good example. Recently while at a spiritual event, watching the person give the address I saw something I had a negative or lowered reaction too. The male giving the address was also sick with a cold – and feeling very out of sorts. He told all of us he was to have a minor procedure at the hospital the following day and if we could send some healing to him it would be welcomed. So using my psychic senses I was sitting in the audience sending healing when I saw something that look like this: Not quite a bird – black – very astral that was flitting around his head and shoulders. I really didn’t like the look of it and was instantly thinking, oh that is an attachment and it is making him sick!
I took a deep breath at that point and remembered my beliefs. I instantly changed to wanting to communicate with what I was seeing, in an observer way. My guide smiled, walked up to the astral bird like thing and blew on it. With that what looked like ashes fell off of it and it transformed into a beautiful blue bird then landing on the presenters shoulder.
My guide was singing the song “Zip a dee doo dah” – you know the part where it says, “Mister bluebird on my shoulder” So the end result and after assessment of what I was seeing? The spirit bird form had come to this fellow to give him healing – at the audiences’ request. In its work had become covered with all the gunk creating the cold. I saw it when it was in need of help itself. If I had not taken the time to properly step into the observers role, take a better look at what was going on – I would have not been witness to this outcome.
I want to see more responsibility as a conclusion of this increased interest. We need to bring back rescue workers, and rescue circles! I would love to be able to teach this to all who are interested in the paranormal. It doesn’t have the drama that attracts the media but it certainly will have a better result in the long run. Furthermore to all those who are having these increased experiences I really want you to all know "you are in control more than you realize".
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change. It should be a part of every consultation that the client leaves with a tool kit and the ability to deal with that paranormal themselves.
