“Seeing” Energy and Speaking to Intuition
“Can you see ghosts? Do you talk to dead people?”
Common questions I receive as a medical intuitive and someone that works with energy, and the answers are not so straightforward as you might think: no and sort of.
Ok, I guess the answers are pretty simple. But there’s a little more to it and a bit of backstory.
When I was 5 years old I watched a television movie one night with my dad, just the two of us. A sweet picture right? This was was back in the days before those advisories came on the screen before the start of a program and after each commercial break. You know the ones I’m talking about: “This program has scenes that are inappropriate for young children. Viewer discretion is advised.”
My dad was a good father but he had his missteps, one of which was recognizing what movies your kindergartener should not watch. Now he was fully aware that scenes of a sexual nature were off limits but scary thrillers? Eh, not so much. If obliviousness is a genetic trait I know exactly who I got it from.
Back to the movie. I remember the plot to this day: a woman with a nasty mean husband conspires with the husband’s mistress to murder him and dump the body. And I completely recall the scene that scared my pants off and set my hair on end: they go to recover the body where they dumped it in the muddy, leaf strewn estate swimming pool only to find it missing.
It was gone. Freaky right? I can still recall the eerie cello theme music.
And when I went to bed right after, my body struck back. This is the memory that’s particularly crystal clear: unable to get the scene where the two “killers” dumped the body out of my mind I kept picturing it over and over again.
And then I felt it – it started in my chest, in my heart area (right where I could feel the heebie-jeebies the strongest): a feeling of pressure and intense heat. Then it was like a fire spread through the rest of my body.
By the time I called out for my parents, it was a full-blown fever. No other symptoms then or later, nothing serious enough to warrant a doctor’s visit or the emergency room – just a very overheated little body that stayed that way for the next 3 days.
I had to miss 3 days of kindergarten – the one time in your life you really dislike missing school. And, looking back, that was my first lesson on the effects of emotion on the physical body. How funny to realize how early my medical intuitive training actually started.
Back to present day. I know that for me, the dominant trigger that will upset my body’s balance is fear. It does take a little more than a freaky movie to set it off, but if I know that something will scare the bejeebus out of me I steer clear.
Except when I forget and dabble in temptation – much like Pandora just couldn’t resist a little peek in the box…
A few years back I was in an old hotel with an associate long accustomed to viewing apparitions, i.e. ghosts. We were in the elevator when she happend to remark, oh so casually, about a gentleman that appeared and vanished. An ephemereal peeping-tom, perhaps.
And I’ll admit I got jealous. While I’ve always been able to tap into energies of beings past and present, seeing them visually has eluded me. so I said to myself, “Why can’t I see things like that?”
That same night, in that very hotel, I could not get to sleep. Not simple insomnia, but something more. Every time I closed my eyes and started to drift off I would feel something like a shove or a poke in the arm and become wide awake. I didn’t fall asleep until I finally got that this was the answer to my previous question:
“You don’t see things like that, you silly, because even though you enjoy being a medical intuitive, there are still things that freak your pants off!”
Point taken. A little rude in the delivery, but message loud and clear.
So about those ghosts…
Feel them? Yes.
Sense their energy? Yes.
Receive messages? In a way, yes.
See them? My choice is: no thank you!
