I talk with many people who are quite aware that they have what it takes to be a psychic medium and would like to do it yet they won't take steps to develop their skills. The reason that I hear most is fear. They are afraid of what connecting with the spirit world might be like. They are afraid of coming into contact with negative spirits.
I confess that I way over delayed my own development because I, too, was fearful of the spirit world. Then once I threw in the towel, as it were (you can read some more about my own experience HERE) I felt some regret for not having acted sooner. Why? Because once I dipped my toes in everything was just FINE! My fear vanished. I began to see the spirit world in a whole new way. And I liked and felt comfortable with what I was experiencing.. And that is when my development flourished!
Here are my top 6 tips to help you overcome fear of the spirit world:
1. Cut yourself a break:
It is very natural to experience fear when you are dealing with things you don't know about or fully understand. You are new to the spirit world so naturally you may feel some hesitation and fear. Make it your goal to learn all that you can about the spirit world.
2. Keep things in perspective:
Fiction has largely fueled the general fear of the spirit world. The ways that Stephen King novels, Hollywood movies, etc, etc. depict the spirit world and the supernatural are not kind, to say the least. Nor are they true. Fiction is not based in reality. It is just that - fiction. These stories sensationalize the scary aspects to put money in the bank.
3. Bring the spirit world down to earth (where it belongs!):
The spirit world is much the same as the physical world. In our world there are, by far, lots of good people, and some not so good, too. The same can be said of spirits. You interact in the physical world every day. You use your common sense. You stay away from the baddies, and focus on connecting with good people. This is what you do when you are dealing with the spirit world, too. It is primarily an extension of the world that you live in that is familiar to you now. And like people in the "real" world, the vast majority of spirits are wonderful, kind, loving and helpful.
4. Endeavour to learn all you can about the spirit world:
Read books about the spirit world (see some of my recommendations: HERE), watch videos and visit websites (like this one!) that provide information focused on helping you to understand the spirit world and what it is all about. The more you learn about other people's experiences and the ins & outs of the spirit world, the better you will feel about the whole thing! Knowledge empowers you to move through your fear and turn it into enthusiasm for making a connection with spirit.
5. Get clear on one important thing: that YOU are always the one in control:
Are there such things as negative spirits? Yes. But they are EXTREMELY rare. As I said earlier the spirit world is full of wonderful, positive spirits who want to help those of us here on earth. They wish to share their wisdom and guidance with us. Keeping your focus on the good side of the spirit world (which is WAY bigger than the negative side) and eradicating your fear through knowledge are two key factors in a smooth experience with spirit. So are staying away from things that tend to attract negative entities (like the Ouija board, for example) and striving to keep your vibration high (Click HERE for more of my thoughts on that). You and only you are the one who chooses what kind of relationship that you have with the spirit world. For a negative entity to exist at all it needs to draw power from someone else because it has no power of its own - whether here on earth or in the spirit world. It needs you to be in fear. So don't disempower yourself by remaining in a place of fear. Empower yourself by following these top tips!
6. Learn to connect with the spirit world the RIGHT way:
Again... knowledge is power and knowing how to connect with spirit in a safe and healthy manner is important. You wouldn't ski down a black diamond trail in the Swiss Alps without learning how to do it the right way, would you? If you did it could be pretty dangerous...
So, if connecting with the spirit world is something you truly want to do then learn how to do it right. Avail yourself of the numerous teachings that are at your disposal in these current times. When you know how to do it properly you can relax and enjoy!
I have a number of resources on this website and several books that are geared towards helping you learn to connect the right way with the spirit world. My Five Steps to Communicating with Spirit Books 1 & 2 are designed to gently introduce you to the world of spirit and guide you to developing the skills necessary to make the connection. You can check them out HERE.
Ok, there you go. Commence connecting with spirit! ;)
