Dusting off the Psychic Antennae
I'm VERY excited. I have an opportunity to sit in Seance on Saturday. It's been years! And the person running it is someone I haven't seen in ages either. Wonder if she'll remember me? I took Therapeutic Touch Classes from her probably 8 years or so ago. She has really perfected her teaching skills.. good for her! We both came out of the same Psychic Development School (which will remain nameless since I'm about to blast it) which is where I met LB incidentally so it has served it's purpose. Unfortunately, the focus of this school has changed from development to money grabbing.. a common problem in the psychic community. I know this since I have a friend who is going there now.. it was on it's way to being icky when I left almost 6 years ago. I told her the program is good (I know because LB rewrote the syllabus and the book) so if she can stand the BS it's worth sticking it out... but I digress. LB and I really miss sitting in Seance. We were leading some at another local school where we were asked to teach psychic development when their teacher walked out in a fit of rage. We taught this group our "Mastering Message Work" workshop that we developed for them since they were already "experienced". We were really bummed out when we discovered that all they were really interested in was the "Pirate Jeni and LB Show" aka "lets let the teachers do all the message work and sit here in the dark like lumps and not progress in our own development" It gets old. And there is no real joy in teaching people who aren't interested in learning. About a year or so ago, we were asked by a local Pagan Group to lead a seance. We did.. it was pretty good. There was one person who, with a little guidance (hey isn't that what I'm here for?) was able to pull out an AMAZING message... spot on.. perfect. We were invited back, but the second time... well it was back to the "Pirate Jeni and LB Show". This time, we are not leading the seance.. excellent.. so maybe I can actually work on my own skills as opposed to teaching others.. not that I don't like teaching, I do.. but only for willing students... rare to find, turns out. I think often, psychic ability and mediumship are viewed as something mystical and amazing and unatainable. Not true. well.. sort of true.. it's pretty freaking amazing, but really should be part of everyday life... Like breathing. Something we do naturally and once and a while should pay attention to.. I don't like being part of a show.. or put on the spot to perform. (Maybe that's why I dont' show my dogs?) Anyway, I'm really looking foward to this. I hope that it doesn't suck. If you are wondering how to find a seance in your area, I can't help you. It's almost like you have to be in on the "down low". Turns out I know a heck of a lot of Sunday Psychics...

  1. For me, the psychic stuff is hard because I still have huge problems quieting my mind enough to allow other input. I know I have some level of psychic ability or a part of me is one heck of a good subconscious reader of others’ body language. I suspect I broadcast a lot, too, without knowing. My dogs read stuff from me, even when I don’t think they can be getting visual cues.

    Lack of confidence and the difficulty of “proving” my own proficiency does make it easier for me to rely on thers’ psychic ability than my own.

  2. Quieting your mind is actually one of the hardest things to do.. follow that with trusting what you get.

    Little tip for you.. when it comes to quieting your mind, what happens is our brain says “oh! you’re quiet now!? Excellent you are listening.. so.. I’m worried about this and you forgot to do that and by the way I read this interesting story… blah blah blah… it’s like the flood gates open up”… so the trick is to acknowledge the thought… sort of say to yourself “yes, I see that I’m worried about yadda yadda, but that worry will be there when I’m done. This is my time to be quiet now. ” and then imagine that thought in a little bubble and toss it to the side..

    Meditate every day (or as often as you can) for 15 minutes.. and if the first 14 minutes are tossing thought bubbles aside then so be it… but every time it gets easier.. eventually, you’ll start to feel what is a thought and what is a feeling… feelings we pay attention to.. thoughts we put aside temporarily.
