Summer 2015 Newsletter

In this edition: Antiquity, 13 Point Chakra System, Chakra Meditation, The Big Seance and more…

What an exciting 3 months it’s been since I sent out my last newsletter.  So much has been happening, that it’s hard to know what to share with you this time around.  I’ve been on a real journey of discovery, spiritually speaking and therefore I’ve cherry picked what I think you’ll be interested in.

My trance guides and teachers in Spirit have recently lead me back to antiquity to learn about ancient civilisations.  I’m told it’s very important that we start to understand the ancient past as it’s becoming particularly relevant to how we move forward in our future.  The circle of life really does ring true and history does indeed repeat its self.  In particular, I have been guided to learn about the Sumerian’s, one of the first documented civilisations on Earth and a civilsation, that up and until now, I’d never heard of!  It comes to something when the first time you hear of a whole race of people, is through the deceased 😉

Anyway, the Sumerians lived in Mesopotamia between 6000BC and 1000BC.  Mesopotamia being modern day Iraq.  What’s fascinating about these people is how advanced they actually were.  They were the first civilisation to invent the wheel, the 60 second minute and writing, along with many other inventions still used today.  Thousands of small clay tablets have been discovered in recent times, all meticulously documenting life in ancient Sumerian times, some of which can be viewed at The British Museum in London amongst other places in the world.  What has particularly sparked my interest is the fact that the Sumerian culture continues to influence our culture today.   They were the first people to talk about The Deluge and the creation of man.  In a nut shell, they wrote about Gods who visited Earth and who created the black headed people.  When a time came that the world was flooded, these Gods decided not to save man from the impending floods.  However, Enki (the God of Eridu), did not agree with their decision and set about trying to save man.  A boat was built which also housed the animals and it endured a storm for 7 nights and 7 days at which time a bird was sent out in the quest to find dry land and so, life on Earth was ultimately saved.  This story about The Deluge obviously is the origins for the Bible story of Noah and the Arch and once you know this, you begin to wonder just how much of our history has been lost in translation as it was handed down or deliberately manipulated in the history and spiritual books.  Incidentally, the same thing has happened with the Egyptian Book of the Dead, in my view.   The Book of the Dead outlines 42 questions that the deceased must answer once they’ve traveled in Spirit through the underworld and finally meet with the Egyptian God, Maat, the goddess of truth.  These confessions consist of ones such as “I have not robbed with violence”, “I have done no murder, I have done no harm”, “I have not stolen”, “I have not defiled the wife of another man”, “I have not been a man of anger”, “I have not spoken lies”.  Clearly the story of Moses simplifies these 42 morals or laws and provides a good moral compass for society by providing the 10 commandments.

We think we are so advanced, but how far have we come really?  The people of antiquity had knowledge that to this day we struggle to understand.  They could not only live, but thrive in harsh environments and they commanded their land.  How did they build pyramids to such precision with rudimentary tools and by mapping the stars?  They clearly had knowledge of maths and engineering on a scale that we cannot appreciate.  And why did all ancient civilisations create pyramids and other structures from stone and ensure they left their wisdom carved into it for all time?  How is it that people were doing this right across the globe without the aid of the internet for sharing information or the means to travel?  In ways different to us, ancient civilisations had knowledge superior to ours.  Did you know fore instance that the ancient Egyptians moved a whole city when the Nile changed course and direction.  They moved all their megalithic sized structures, monuments and temples closer to the water again.  A task that even our strongest cranes and machines would be challenged with.  We’ve always been taught that this was done through the use of slaves, but is this fact?  We’re actually discovering that whole communities of educated people were based in villages around the sites of the Egyptian pyramids and these people would have been paid workers and experts in their field.  We continue to discover new insights all the time and I’m sure the future archeologists of this world will enlighten us further.

What is clear to any spiritually minded seeker, is that ancient civilisations dedicated their lives to the understandings of spiritual matters.  Rituals, shamanic practices, mediumship, scrying and healing were a part of daily life and their sears were celebrated.  What they lacked in technological and scientific advancement, they more than made up for in their mastering of the metaphysical.  Their’s was a golden age of spiritual advancement.  An age where spiritual knowledge was not belittled, but embraced and studied.  An age where the spirits of ancestors were honoured and consulted.  It does not do these civilisations credit to put these practices down purely to a the work of humanity trying to understand it’s world in a time when modern day science wasn’t at their disposal, because clearly these civilisations were so intelligent already in all sorts of disciplines.  Why would their knowledge of spirituality be any different?  It wasn’t perfect I’m sure, but must we throw baby out with the bath water? They clearly had mystical experiences and tried to understand them and those stories are still being handed down to generations today.  What did they know that we have lost? Why is it that in spite of their amazing earthly achievements, nothing was more important to the Egyptians than understanding death and what happened afterwards?  Sadly these days, this is a question all too often brushed under the carpet and yet, surely it is one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves?

6000 years ago people were having mystical and spiritual experiences and in 6000 years time, I wager that people will still be having mystical and spiritual experiences.  This is because the aspect of ourselves that has these experiences transcends all of time.   For me personally, I am learning that those in the non-physical dimensions have been reaching out to me, trying to remind me of this truth and urging me to look to our past for guidance for the future…and i get the feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg…

The 13 point chakra system

Most healers and mediums are aware of the 7 major chakra points throughout the body’s energy field, but are you aware that there are in fact 13+ major chakra points?

As humanity begins to make a shift in consciousness, dormant chakra centres are begining to re-awaken, helping the human energy body to evolve.  Many mediums may find they are suffering from headaches or require body work around the neck and head area as the Point of Osiris (as my guides call it) or what’s also commonly called the Zeal Chakra or Well of Dreams, begins to open and become active at the base of the skull.  Also referred to as voice of God this centre governs that which is spoken from Spirit via the Medium.  Different from the throat chakra which is the centre for communication, this centre voices the truth of Spirit.  It is currently small and in many people not active yet but it’s energy is spiral like in nature.  Why not try focusing your attention on this centre to help it’s development and ultimately your link with Spirit?

There are also new points above the head and below the feet too.  This knowledge is in it’s infancy and will no doubt continue to evolve as mediums and channels are given further information independently through their Spirit teachers.  What’s fascinating to me though is that across the world, independently from one another, Mediums and Channellers are receiving this information and therefore the knowledge carries more weight. I’m trusting of it myself because I knew nothing of it before a session with my guides and I was astounded to subsequently discover that other mediums already had discovered this information for themselves.

 

Bite sized learning…

Chakra meditation:

1:  Find yourself in a comfortable position in an upright chair, in the peace and quiet

2. Close your eyes.  Take some deep relaxing breaths

3.  Imagine you are drawing healing light up from beneath your feet, up through your whole body and sending it out through the top of your head, up to the heavens and all around you.  Repeat this stage a couple of times

4.  Next focus your attention on each chakra point.  Visualise light going into the area, clearing, cleansing and balancing each centre.  Take notice of how you feel and whether you can sense if each centre is underactive, over active or balanced.  Do they expand out easily or do you feel uncomfortable working on them.  Perhaps you can sense the energy expanding at each centre. Make a mental note, but don’t over analyse.

6.  At the points where you reach the new under-developed chakra points, ask in your mind for them to become open for you and visualise yourself sending light with loving intention into these areas.  Try to see them gently expanding outwards. Be aware of how you feel physically and emotional whilst doing this. Do not over work or force these centres.  Rather visit this meditation regularly.  Little but often is suffice.

7.  If you are going to do energy work after this meditation, you may choose to bring your attention back to the room now and work whilst still in this expanded energy state, but remember to return your energy to your body afterwards.  If you’re not working, now allow the light you have sent out to return gradually to your body and back down through your head and body and out of your feet, back to the ground.

8.  When you feel grounded and rooted in your physical body once again, open your eyes and become fully aware of your surroundings.  It’s often a good idea to take a drink of water at this stage.

Tip:  You may like to try introducing crystals into your space for an added boost.  Pick the ones you intuitively feel drawn too.  If in doubt, clear quartz is always a winner.  Crystals hold a piezeoelectric charge which may influence the energy field around you.

Media

This month I had the absolute pleasure of connecting with Patrick Keller from The Big Seance Podcast over in the USA.  I’ve been a fan of his shows since they began and Patrick took a leap of faith and very kindly offered to interview me, a relative unknown, about my mediumship and the work I do within my circle groups in the UK.  The interview will be available at http://bigseance.com/ or via itunes soon.  In the meantime, why not listen to his other excellent podcast episodes, all about the paranormal, spirit communication, psychics and mediums.  Everything that I’m guessing is right up your street!  You could even drop him a note letting him know you’ve listened.  I personally wish Patrick every success for the future and I would love to see him reach giddy heights with his listeners, so spread the word.

 

Looking for something to read?…

In 2004, Janis Heaphy Durham’s husband, Max Besler, died of esophageal cancer at age 56. While coping with her grief, Janis soon began encountering phenomena unlike anything she had ever experienced: lights flickering, doors opening and closing, clocks stopping at 12:44, the exact time Max died. But then something startling happened that changed her life forever. A powdery handprint spontaneously appeared on her bathroom mirror on the first anniversary of Max’s death. Incredibly, a similar image appeared on the second and third anniversaries as well. Clearly, something otherworldly was occurring.

 

This launched Janis on a journey that transformed her spiritually and altered her view of reality forever. She interviewed scientists and spiritual practitioners along the way, as she discovered that the veil between this world and the next is thin, and that love is what bridges the two.

Did You Know?

There is an interesting story about Napoleon on his visit to the Great Pyramid. He asked to be left alone in the King’s chamber. When he emerged, it was reported that he looked visibly shaken. When an aide asked him if he had witnessed anything mysterious, he replied that he had no comment, and that he never wanted the incident mentioned again. Years later, when he was on his deathbed, a close friend asked him what really happened in the King’s chamber. He was about to tell him and stopped. Then he shook his head and said, ‘No, what’s the use. You’d never believe me.’ As far as we know, he never told anyone and took the secret to his grave. (It is interesting to note that there is an unsubstantiated story that Napoleon had hinted that he was given some vision of his destiny during his stay in the King’s Chamber).
