When I first wrote a story on this website, it was all about how I was looking for help to grow stronger within the spiritual community. I soon found that there was no trick to becoming a better medium, or even a type of thinking to make you understand the kind of things that go on.
I'll put subheadings because this is a massive post and you might just like to go to the things that interest you.
I'm only 17 so I have so much more to learn however I wanted to write this little story as a type of update to the kinds of things that have been happening to me and even the things that have been helping me, such as other mediums.
At first I wasn't sure how the whole thing worked, I always knew that I was the type of child that fit the "psychic kid" definition to a T, such as imaginary friends, ghosts outside my window, sleeping in my mother's room until I was 11, seeing people that weren't there, hearing things that wasn't there the list goes on. However I always thought that I was just simply crazy and until recently I still did.
From what I've learned at my age psychic abilities tend to shift from time to time. Sometimes I would see things, feel things all the time, and my energy would be very active within all the spiritual stuff. However other times I wouldn't have a dream, I wouldn't hear things, or sense things for ages.
I was told some very useful advice from a native America; "psychic ability are like the tides they come in and out". I just thought that was so calming.
I recently discovered that all mediums or psychics whatever you like to call them work differently. I used to be under the impression that if you saw and spoke to ghosts... But it was a bit different to say a famous medium then you're just a nut bag.
I hear all the time this kind of statement "I see ghosts just as if I were talking to you right now". This always scared me because I don't see spirits that was at all like a full body human. I use my third eye, and this would always scare me because basically I "see them in my head". Now how crazy does that make me sound.
Well it's true I do, and only until recently did I realize that what I was seeing in my head was not my imagination but true. Here is a story for your viewing pleasure.
I usually didn't like to talk openly about these gifts I have until recently. I used to walk around dealing with all this by myself hoping and praying that the things I felt were supernatural, and not just all in my head.
This whole perception changed once I decided to talk to my family about all these things I see and hear. They all knew I saw things and are nothing but supportive however they always got the impression that "I didn't want to talk about it" which I didn't, I hope that's changed now.
Well my nana was telling me about her farther one day in her kitchen. There has always been a man that stands in her doorway watching everyone walk by. So I decided to ask some questions about her farther, sort of describing the man in the doorway. "Was he a round kind of man, short not too tall"?..."Oh yes he was he was about this tall (nana shows with hand, almost exactly the same height as the man in the doorway) "When he was younger say...40-50 or so did he have black hair that was receding"?..."Yes he did, but when he was older he had grey hair" at that moment my sister (who was in the room at the time) said "why do you see him"? And I said yes he's standing right there.
I wish now that I spoke to people about these things because I desperately needed verification that what I was seeing was real and not all made up. So that's my advice to you, if you have a group of friends that are open to these types of things you need to talk to them.
I find that confidence is a massive part of this whole weird and wacky world. Only recently have I had this attitude of STUFF IT if I'm wrong I'm wrong, if I'm right I'm damn right and how good will that feel. And by the way spirits come in different forms in different parts of their lives, so say you say a man with thick square glasses, black hair, and hes in his say 30s or 40s walking with a person. And you felt like it was that person's grandfather. You tell that person and they say no my grandfather had half cut glasses and grey hair. That doesn't mean you're wrong it could just mean you are seeing them at a younger age than the person knew them.
Keep that in mind. And don't ever let it bring you down.
I'm beginning to hear spirits now which is an odd thing to me, however there is a catch. All my life I have been hearing spirits when I'm in between sleeping and awake, I think this is call the twilight zone or something. Anyway now it's more recent and I can turn it on and off. When I want to hear them I can tweak my ears so that I hear this high pitch sound, It feels as if I'm hearing another world. This is when I feel I can hear them. I'm trying to work on hearing spirits when I'm fully awake so I can start handing out messages. Every morning I wake up with a story that a spirit has told me. For example just last night I was visited by a father who was telling me about his beautiful twin little girls. However he told me that in death he had discovered that he wasn't the farther could of cried but I was so tired I passed out, he and a number of other ghosts including my spirit guide who refuses to tell me his name kept me up until 3 in the morning >.<
One last thing before I end this massive post, I would like to share some shows that have helped me out so very much. I would like anyone who is interested to look for Lisa Williams she is all over the web, she has 3 television shows that are so heart warming, and you get a great amount of helpful information. Including some talk about how she works, how spirits work for her, psychic attacks, stories messages, the works, it's all with her. Also she has a website which I'm apart of and you can get these audios of all her live shows, they are truly inspirational, just google her name the site will come up.
Also you might like to pick up her book, it's an Autobiography and it's simply amazing, her show name and book are called Lisa Williams Life among the dead. You will love it and you will be inspired. I was so sad when the book finished because it was just so wonderful.
Also another show to look up is "Psychic Kids" as far as I know there are two seasons and its just amazing. It makes you feel like your not alone in this world with all the things that are going on. It follows the life of kids from the age of say 9 to even as high as 19. Not only does it tell their story it also takes them to a camp... Well a place that has a lot of activity and with the help of an adult medium, Chip, it is in the first season and the second it rotates. This medium tells the kids how to manage their abilities, and how to deal with them and make them stronger. Thanks to this show I'm not longer scared of all my spirits and now I can get on with learning how to use the gift to help people.
What else can I tell you, I'm sure I've forgotten something however I would like to offer anyone who may be in a similar situation as I was, which would be basically everyone on this website to, if you want to, contact me on da_names_leo (at) hotmail.com and I'm happy to talk to you about anything you like. I'm definitely no expert but I've had my fair share of experiences and I would love to hear from you.
I have also been thinking about giving readings online, free of course because I don't even know if it works over the internet, It will help me hone my skills, and also it will help people which is what I'm all about.
