This week, I received an email from Paul. He said, “Hey Jess, I like that you talk about psychic ability in a positive way. But, do you ever get scared when you are working with spirits?”
GREAT question! The answer is no, never. Here’s why…
1. I had great mentors
When my psychic and mediumship abilities first started opening up back in 2000, I was fortunate to have wonderful mentors.
Yes, I had to drive up to two hours to study with them, but it was worth every ounce of energy getting the kids ready to stay with my grandma, and every dollar paid to gas up my minivan. :)
Being afraid of spirits never crossed my mind BECAUSE of my mentors.
They always made mediumship seem like such a beautiful and natural thing.
From early on, I learned that my job as a medium was to prove the continuity of life after death – and give a voice to those in Spirit.
During my studies, Spirit was never anything to fear. Contrary, I learned that when we die, we go back to our natural state of pure loving energy.
And when I first started working with Spirit, I could not believe the overwhelming sensation of love that I felt. It was something that I had never experienced before. There was an emotional feeling of peace, but also a physical sensation of calm in my solar plexus.
Connecting to the Divine is awe inspiring, not scary :)
2. I work in the Light
When you work in the Light, there is nothing to be afraid of. The vibration of Spirit is a very high, loving energy.
So how do I stay in the Light? I always set the intention that my work is for the highest and best good of my client. I also like to say the Lord’s Prayer before a reading.
“Back in the day” when I was studying mediumship and psychic ability, I would set the intention that my practice sessions were for the highest and best good of myself, my soul, and all those I connected with. Even if I was simply sitting down to meditate, I set this intention.
And I can honestly say I’ve never felt anything but love from those on the Other Side. One man in Spirit even gave me the secret ingredient to his famous tuna salad!
I hope this helps you feel a little less afraid of Spirit. If you want more support, read the post 7 Psychic Protection Methods.
