I've been reading a lot of peoples stories in this site lately and have found that many have such a fear of spirit. What is it that frightens you all? Is it what you've seen tv? Or at the movies? Or read in books?
I really think we need to learn a few things about spirit and their world and how to deal with them. They are not complicated beings, they are not all powerful beings that perform miracles every day (I'm not saying they don't do this sometimes). They have lived their lives on this earth plane and have now left their physical bodies behind.
All I want to do is give some advice on spirit and what I believe to be true. Some basic info anyway.
I try to think of spirit more like us than anything else, I try to talk to spirit like I talk to a mate or family member that is still alive. Try not to treat spirit any different to this. And this is where your control must come in. Spirit will try and communicate with those open enough to see, feel or hear them anyway they can, they will do this night and day if you allow them to. And what I mean by allowing them to is to sit around and wonder how do I get them to go away? The easiest way is to tell them that you don't want to talk to them and to leave you alone. I know it sounds simple but 9 times out of 10 this will work. This is where your control over the situation must happen, you can't tell them to go away and then start wondering in your mind I wonder if they've gone? And start question yourself, As spirit will just turn up again and say no I'm not gone. If you fear them they will stay around as spirit will live off of your fear. You need to be confident that when you say go away you mean it. This is what I mean by in control, you have to be confident that they can't hurt you, can't run your life or be in to close 24/7.
A simple thing to remember is, this is our world, we are the physical beings on this plant, we have come here to learn and experience, not them. They are energy, nothing more nothing less, they are hear to prove that life goes on after we have passed, by what they bring through to us, and to help guide where they can. But we must be in control as this is our world.
Anyway just a little food for thought, and just my opinion.
I hope this helps a few of you out there.
I'll will also say that on the other hand, I work with spirit everyday as a medium, and the communications that you have with them can be great, Its just learning to be in control can be the hardest thing to learn, but when you do it does open up a different world for you to look at.
