I talk to dead people. I can assure you it is not frightening. Folk in Spirit are always calm and sometimes can even be humorous. I see people in motion; someone brushing lint from their sleeve, shaking out an apron, adjusting a hat to a rakish angle. When I meet dead people in my dreams they are always whole and healthy. Extremes of emotions stop with the last breath you take in your lifetime. Sometimes I also see animals. If I do not see them I can always hear them. Did you know animals can speak to you from Spirit? It is astonishing.
I do not feel crowded when I talk to Spirit. It is not like that scene from "Ghost" where Whoppie Goldberg is surrounded by dead folk who slouch against the walls waiting their tern to talk to their loved ones. Everybody takes their turn in my world. There is no crowding and pushing. It wasn't always that way because I did feel very overwhelmed in the beginning, but as I got used to what I was doing things settled down.
Talking to Spirit concerns itself with what my Guides and other Folk in Spirit want to talk about. Also, there are those things that I feel I have learned from them that have made a difference for me personally. I figure I am run of the mill normal. If what they have said helped me maybe it will help others too. That is why I talk about these things. Also, if I can in any way help to make the world a better place diminishing hate, prejudice, bigotry, injustice and narrow minded thinking I will give it my best shot.
This website contains a large amount of psychic channeled information. This information has come from a group I refer to as The Guides. Much of it is from Seth, but there is a lot from other Folk in Spirit who remain, even for me much of the time, anonymous. Suffice it to say the Spirit Group is large and fluid, members coming and going over time. But, Seth, my main guide, has remained throughout.
Why is it a person would want to spend time listening to somebody they can't even see? Face it, they are invisible. Also, they are dead. Come to think of it, the last time they were alive people were probably wearing togas, so you'd figure they might not be up on the latest trends of style, if that is what is important to you.
I will tell you why these Folk in Spirit are worth listening to. It is because what these Spirit Guides say to me rings true. What they say is helpful and gives me and others hope. The things they say really make you think. These Spirit Guides have been a source of encouragement for me since February 12, 1993, when my planchette finally zoomed off the Ouija board I had been trying to get to work, without success, for the prior 6 months. And, by the way, the Spirit Guides do, truly, have a sense of style.
I've been channeling Seth since that day in 1993. He was the first Spirit Guide who came to teach me the ways of psychic channeling. After a year of speaking with him I began to slowly move out into a psychic realm of Spirit populated by a great number of Guides and Interesting Personalities to talk to.
I like to channel. I could easily be happy spending my days psychically channeling Folks in Spirit. It's sort of like being the microphone at a seminar or a lounge act. I get involved in that I'm right there, but I also try to stay out of the way of what is being said so I don't disrupt or skew it in any way. I've got to tell you that being a psychic channel at work has been very interesting. "Add that up again, please." So, they help me with the more mundane of tasks too, for which I've always been grateful.
I have been a psychic channel long enough to realize that there are some areas I will probably never be real clear about...just ask one of the Spirit Guides about dieting and you will get the really skewed version of Spiritual Dieting Techniques. But, from what people have said I think I can deliver a pretty clear rendition of what Spirit wants to talk about when it is something other than diets.
Being psychic does not necessarily make everything safe and wonderful. Being psychic does not make a mean neighbor start being nicer to you. Being psychic does not put you in the best of health. Those are things you have to take care of on your own.
Also, being psychic is not going to prevent you from dying. Everybody is going to die. There is just no way around that one. Being psychic might help you to avoid an accident that could have messed up your car or your day, but the major ones? The accidents that are part of your life lessons? The Guides and Folk in Spirit will never interfere with that stuff.
What being psychic does for me is give me the opportunity to ask somebody for advice and I have no qualms about asking a really dumb question. They don't seem to mind. (They just said to me that there are no dumb questions.)
Every night my dreams are peopled with Folk in Spirit playing one role or another. I know they are Folk in Spirit because before I learned how to channel my dreams were always me and one other person, a person intent upon doing me harm. Always. Now, I am relatively safe in my dreams and when I awaken I always thank them for being there.
I play a game at work where I "guess" who is calling on the phone. Sometimes I am right. That's what I think is being psychic. I think if I were to know the future I'd think that I am more psychic than I am, but I am rarely afforded glimpses of what is to come.
I do not use an alarm clock anymore. I have not used one for 23 years. Somehow either I seem to awaken on my own or a guide is there to say it is time to get up. I remember the first time it ever happened. Seth said to me, "Time to get up sleeping beauty." I have always thought that was pretty wonderful. Now, if I have to get up at a time other than my usual time I always check in with them before I go to bed, "Will you wake me up in the morning?" and they always say, "Yes."
I learned to be more creative with the things I cook when I met my father-in-law. I used to follow Pete around the kitchen with a notepad writing down what it was he was doing. He did not work from recipes and the things he made were always wonderful. He has since passed on and it has been 40 years since he taught me the most important thing which was to have fun in the kitchen. But, as I cook these days my Folk in Spirit will make suggestions. Helpful ones that will always improve the taste of what we will eventually be eating. I have not ever known them to steer me wrong. Maybe he is there occasionally to make a suggestion. I really do not know who these Folk in Spirit are. I know that I continue to feel safe. I feel blessed.
If you want these things for yourself you can have them. My feeling is that everyone is psychic. Granted, in some people it is more evident than in others, but everybody has the ability to begin to trust their gut instincts more often. Everybody has the ability to believe in Spirit.
I enjoy teaching them how to do these things on their own. Visit my Learn to Channel pages here at Talking to Spirit and my Learn to Channel Blog.
So, with no further ado, I will turn the microphone over to Seth, who will talk in Blue for awhile...There, and so we begin. First of all, I would like to say I really don't have an axe to grind, an agenda, if you will. We, the Folk in Spirit, Pauline speaks of, are here to support you. And, you do not need to come to this particular place, this one website in time, to take advantage of that support. We have always been there for each and every one of you. We will always be there for each and every one of you. And, that support will not end with your current incarnations on this plane of existence.
However you personally deal with the issue of God or Spirit is your business. We support you in your attempts or non attempts to widen your spiritual base of understanding. We are but tools to be utilized, not in any way to ever be idolized. And, with that said we would also thank our Channel for her efforts in this venture. Our blessings to all of you. We look forward to speaking here of many subjects for a long time to come. Again, our blessings.
I know, personally, what it feels like to wonder if God hears me. In my heart now I know that he/she does. I think the most valuable thing anybody could come away from this website with would be the glimmer of an idea planted in their heart that maybe God can hear them when they pray. And, if you are uncomfortable with the idea of God listening in on what you do, picture your Aunt Millie who passed on when you were nine. Just the thought that you can say hi to somebody you love who's passed on can make the vice grip grief has about your heart to ease a little. At least, that's what I hope might happen.
I've found that you can become more psychic just by hanging around psychic people. It's sort of contagious. So, in a sense, reading some of these pages might qualify. I have personal experience in connecting with a group of psychic people on the Internet shortly after I learned how to channel in 1993 with a group of fine individuals from a website that is no longer there. I will always treasure the fine chats we had in Stonehenge at Spiritweb. From that moment forward they were in my dreams and my "visions" skyrocketed. There are lots of forums out there now where you can meet other psychics. I've got links to a few of them here sprinkled throughout these pages. One place I heartily endorse is the Rainbow Crystal Mountain Chat.And I recommend Barb Mallon as a wonderful psychic.
I'm not a flaming, flamboyant psychic. I'm just a little bit psychic, the same as anybody else. I have flashes. Flashes of psychic insight that I can't always explain or control. As with anything else, with time and practice I will get better at it. But, that is not the main thing I am interested in. That, to me, is a sort of nice side effect of the channeling that I do. What I am is a channel.
What people tend to think is that if they ask or even pay me money I will be forced to channel information for them from the guides. Well, it doesn't work that way. That's one of the reasons I decided to stop giving readings. The guides are not a Nickelodeon for folks to drop 5 cents in and get something back. I've found whining doesn't work either. If they are not going to tell you something they are just not going to tell you. Generally, the things they won't tell are the things you need to find out on your own. The sorts of questions they answer readily are teaching sorts of questions, like there is life after death, and your pets go to Heaven too. They've told me that people's prayers are heard. All of them. Even the whiny ones. And, not just by God, but by all sorts of people. They also taught me that although our prayers are heard they aren't always answered.
The advice The Guides give has always been very down to earth. It's do-able. It's actually the same advice you'd, more than likely, get from your mother, but because it is coming from somebody who you think doesn't know you personally, well, people tend to sit up and pay attention. And, if your mother knew some disembodied, long dead spirit was telling you the same things she'd been telling you for years, why, I think she'd approve.
I've been channeling since 1993. What can I say about my life now compared to how I was then? I'm calmer. I'm certainly a lot happier. There's a clarity in my life that I didn't seem to have before. And, most importantly, I feel like I've got something of value to contribute. That contribution takes the form of sharing with you the peace I've come to know.
I occasionally go to a psychic. You'd think that because I'm a psychic I wouldn't be plunking down the dough to get a psychic reading, but I do for two reasons.
One is to learn. You can learn something from everybody you meet. Observing how another psychic does things is helpful to me. Either I will have an ah-ha moment and think, "Wow, I've never thought of thinking of things that way." or, "Hmmm, I can see whre they might be a little bit stuck." in the sense that the psychic might be saying, "you should" or "you must". It is preferable to say, "you might consider". In any case, I am guilty of the same thing and it would be a point for me to remember and try to adjust my own mental clarity so that I don't fall into that particular trap. Mental clarity is very, very important to being an effective psychic. Actually, mental clarity is important to the success of any undertaking.
The second reason I occassionally go to a psychic is to get someone else's point of view on my own issues. There's the old saying, "You can't see the forest for the trees." That can certainly apply with your own stuff, especially when, like most of the population, you've got your own neuroses to deal with. For instance, ask my psychic advice about being overweight and you're going to get some really poor advice. At least, I wouldn't give it much heed. I have been overweight for most of my life.
I think most people want an assurance that the future will be rosy and bright. Over the years I've come to learn that if I can try to trust that whatever happens is happening because my higher self has decided it is the best route for me to take. That one lesson has helped me to overcome (most days) my own anxiousness about what the future holds.
I guess what I need to do is learn how to move through the sucky parts of my life gracefully. Like this: It was the end of the day and I was struggling with a stupid rubber band stretching the bejesus out of it to get it around a stack of paperwork. It snapped. A lovely lilac colored rubber band. A thick, heavy duty rubber band. It hit me in the face. Guess what I said? Real loud too. I could have said something else. The stinging has stopped. What has not stopped is the stinging memory of what I said. It certainly wasn't graceful. My mother would never have said that. I guess I just need to forgive myself, resolve not to do it the next time and stop trying to stretch rubber bands past their limit.
Anyway, one thing I've noticed with folks when they ask for a reading from me is are they doing the right thing? Here's some psychic advice, free of charge. Yes, you are on the right track. It might have been quicker had you done x, y and z, but you are still going to get there. And, the other little bit of advice I'm trying to apply to myself as well, is to live in the moment and enjoy life more. Try not to worry about the future.
Life doesn't have to be serious every minute of the day and the guides have shown me they have a terrific sense of humor. So has my husband, Dennis, of many years (we were married in 1976...you do the math!) and I thank him for putting up with me as I developed and have grown as a channel.
What I want to do with this website is to teach, to entertain, to calm and to inspire those who come to visit.
What we have available for you to look at is the entire collection of archived Daily Psychic Channeled entries -- all 365 days. The archived psychic readings are here at Talking to Spirit.
Have a look at the Free Talking To Spirit Picture Board if you'd like to try your hand at making contact with your guide yourself. I repeat:   Free. It's a PDF file with instructions that you can print out in color on your inkjet printer, or in black & white on your laser printer. And, for those folks who want to use it as a lark, be warned. This is not a toy. This is a tool to use to connect with your own Spirit Guide.
We've got recipes, readings, and meditations. There are games to play if you're feeling lucky and most recently, two blogs: Where the Psychic Vents and Learn To Channel.
