I was a real estate broker in my younger days. When I was just starting out I was taught that the three most important things for purchasers to consider before buying a house or a piece of property were:
you guessed it...
It works that way with spirit, too. There are certain locations and places where there are much higher levels of spirit activity thus making it pretty easy to make a connection with them. High spirit traffic locations present more opportunities to rub shoulders with a spirit or two. That's not to say that you cannot connect with spirit in "lower" traffic areas. Spirits are everywhere. They can come to you at any time. All you need to do is ask.
However, if you want to get in some good practice, connect with a specific spirit of someone you know, or experiment with what it feels like to be around very obvious and higher levels of spirit energy, try hitting the spirit super highways!
Where are these spirit super highways?
1. Vortexes or portals:
There are lots of different types of vortexes with many different types of energies that can be felt by empaths, sensitives, psychics and mediums. Portals / vortexes tend to attract more than the average amount of spirit energy, too. This is because the high level of concentrated energy in the vortex area makes it so much easier for spirit to present and make a connection with you. It gives spirit something to grab hold of, so to speak.
Examples of some very famous portals include Sedona AZ, the Pyramids of Giza, Machu Picchu, and the Himalayan mountains. Often there are vortexes / portals in your local community. Do some research, find out where those are then have fun checking them out and soaking up the spirit energy there.
2. Favorite places of your spirit loved ones:
The spirits of our loved ones tend to show up frequently at family gatherings, birthday celebrations and special events. They also tend to have a fondness for visiting a location or place that was dear to them while they were alive. If you want to make a connection with a certain spirit loved one try visiting his or favorite spot. There is a really good chance you will feel them and connect with them there.
Doing things that your loved one in spirit liked to do while he or she was alive is another great way of making an easy connection. My grandparents were avid trailer / RV adventurers. When my husband and I took a year long trip in our camper van, my grandparents came right along with us, sitting right up front which made things a little squeezy because we only had two seats up there! ;)
3. Spirit gathering places:
When I was just starting my development I made my first trip to Lily Dale, a spiritualist enclave in upstate New York. I went during the off season because I was new to my learning and, frankly, I was kind of scared of the whole thing. So my son and I hopped in the car and went in November when there was hardly anyone there, thinking there would be less spirit activity and it would be easier. Boy were we wrong. Read my lips... Tons. Of. Spirits. Let's just say I got my fill.
Each summer Lily Dale is visited by tens of thousands of people hoping to receive a message from their loved ones in spirit. Many psychic mediums actually live there in tiny, cute little houses on tiny, cute little streets. It therefore naturally attracts, oh, let me see... tens of thousands of spirits.
Which makes it a natural spirit gathering place!
There are other places just like Lily Dale, including Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, Wonewoc Spiritualist Camp and Camp Chesterfield, to name only a few. Places like these are great summer vacation spots for people eager to connect with spirit. I went back to Lily Dale many times to study with the experienced mediums there and, let me tell you, the spirits were lining up waiting their turn to speak. It was crazy wonderful.
Spiritualist churches are another natural gathering place for spirits. There is likely one in your area or within a short distance from your city so do some research to find out where they are and go have a fun visit.
So are very old buildings, libraries (especially old ones), churches and old stores. I had a store in a very old building for years that was spirit filled. Even employees who were not into spirits could feel them and would even hear hangers sliding across the old wooden racks when there was no one in the store!
4. Places where the veil is naturally thinner:
The veil is what separates the physical world from the spirit world. There are both places and particular times when that veil is thinner and it is much easier to make a connection with the spirit world.
In terms of physical locations the veil tends to be thinner at points where two worlds meet, as it were, such as where the water meets the land (the sea shore or a river bank), where a city meets the wilderness or a local neighborhood meets a park forest for example. The veil is also thinner inside or at the entry point to a graveyard.
Particular times when the veil is thinner include the equinoxes and the solstices each year, Samhain (just after Halloween when the sun is in the 15th degree of Scorpio), dusk and dawn and the space between waking and dream time just as you are waking up or are falling asleep. I personally experience a tremendous amount of spirit activity just as I am waking up be it in the middle of the night or in the morning.
You could try combining thin veil locations with thin veil times, for example visit the edge of your local forest at dusk.
If you want to have a great time with spirit go ahead and give one of more of the above locations / times a try. Keep in mind, though, that, with the highest and best intention and practice you can make a connection with spirit any time and anywhere.
Let me know how it goes!
