It’s a question that comes up every now and then during the course of a mediumship reading. If we are always sending our thoughts and feelings toward our loved ones in spirit and hoping that they remain with us, are we holding them back? Are we keeping them from moving forward – as if we are somehow taking control of their spirit and forcing them to remain here without any will-power of their own?
Those in spirit feel the loss, too. Perhaps even more especially so, since they know they are still quite alive and are aware, yet battling against a symbolic brick wall of everyone back here on earth relying so much on the outer senses for interaction. So how do we “get them back” and help them reach us? How do we – both here on earth and the Other Side – regain some sense of communion, and thus “wholeness” again within our hearts?
When we watch mediums demonstrate, it can be easy to place the kudos for the information on them. There’s nothing wrong with being excited and congratulatory about the magnitude and intricacies of a message (especially if you’re the medium delivering it). However, it’s important to note: The medium is not the message.
There is definitely a difference in frequency within the world that we inhabit and the spiritual realms where we go after we shed the body. That frequency variance has to be taken into account when it comes to the communication process; a person’s thoughts must come with a level of intensity to move from one frequency layer to another, enough that it can be “grabbed” by the frequency modulation of the medium. We must acknowledge the effort this must take.
Many people have problems in achieving the stillness that meditation can bring and thus its splendid results, both mentally and physiologically (those effects have been medically documented). Meditation, instead, turns into a chore, and never is it used for “communicating with spirits.” Yet it is precisely because of its relaxing, mind-cleansing stature that makes such communication much more available and likely to occur.
The big question is: how do you by-pass all your own mental chatter?
