I have been working very hard on developing my gifts. I'm not even sure what my gifts are, so I'm pretty much trying everything, haha. I know that I want to be a medium, preferably a clairaudient and clairvoyant medium, but as I am learning, I suppose you don't really get to pick your gifts-- I guess I can only try and figure out what they are.
One thing that I am doing is trying to make contact when I first wake up- when I'm still in alpha waves and my ego is still partly down. Some mornings are going better than others, and sometimes I am forced to get up immediately after waking (darn dogs). A few cool things happen when I am in this state: images come to me, I hear words audibly like someone is talking in my ear, and I also try to ask a question and see what is the first thing that pops in my mind. The latter has been the most accurate. I have had two hits doing this method. Each time, I asked my spirit guide (who I think is named James, but I don't really know) for a sign.
The first time it worked the answer was "bowling balls and baseball bats". Obviously, I was like... Uh huh... Ok... And really wasn't sure if it was something I made up or not, but decided to just go with it. I got out of bed, got dressed, and turned on the tv. Not being able to find much to watch, I switched on Netflix and decided to try a new show called "Crazyhead"- it's pretty funny if you haven't seen it- and right there in the intro song the first thing you see is a bowling ball rolling across the floor, followed by a girl swinging a baseball bat. I have to say that really struck me. I had never had a true psychic hit like this before, beside the occasional thinking a word or sentence right before it is said aloud by someone else in the room, or having a song in my head before getting in the car and there it is on the radio.
The second hit came this morning. I once again asked for a sign, and the first word that came into mind was "candle (s) "- I inquired further and the next thing that popped into my head was "you will cut their nails." That wasn't very strange to me actually because I own a dog grooming shop and we cut nails every day. Sure enough, one of my first customers of the morning came in for his dog's nails cut and he bought a pet odor candle. I was just so elated.
As far as what I have heard audibly, there are several snippets here and there, usually just random words that don't seem to have much meaning. Sometimes I will ask for a sign, and wait for an audible answer, but they never turn out to be accurate. These answers have been "Peace" "Roses" "7", to name a few. So I spend the whole day looking for those things to no avail. The only audible hit that had any significance was a string of numbers "31", "33", and "72". I tried analyzing what the numbers meant. I thought maybe there were ages that something significant will happen to me. I am 31 now, and in this same year I had my spiritual awakening. Too bad I will have to wait 2 more years to see if 33 years of age has any significance for me, but the reason that I think it was a psychic hit is because upon watching that first episode of Crazyhead, where I got my bowling ball hit, there is a scene where an apartment door closes and it is apartment 33. It struck a chord so to speak, and my senses sort of flared upon seeing that. I had received those numbers up to a week before, so it's not like it was still fresh on my mind. Later that day I was out with my friend and she had to stop for gas. I wasn't paying attention, but when she got back in the car she said- "hmm that's weird, my total came to $33.33." After that I just had to figure out the significance of 33 and in numerology it means that an ascended master or teacher is helping me. Well if that's the case, then that's great, but I wish I could easily make contact with this spirit! My abilities seem to be pretty non-existent during waking hours.
However, this morning and a few mornings within the last couple of weeks, while attempting to make contact or just listen while waking up I have had an audible "hello" come through, without being asked a question or anything. This morning there were 2 or 3 hellos right after another. They are distinctly in a voice that is not my own. Jumping on the chance, I did my best to answer and make contact, but nothing happened. I am wondering if anyone else uses this method to make contact, and if you know what to do after I hear the "hello". Maybe the connection has been made, but I just can't figure out how to hold on to it. Any suggestions?
