I would definately have to agree with this!
I'd not really thought about life cycles until a few years ago, and i can now actually sit back and see where a cycle has begun and ended in my life.
The one that really stuck out to me was...in 2004 i was working as a carer in a nursing home, at the end of Oct 2004 my husband was diagnosed with a rare cancer and doctors gave him a month to build his strength up before starting chemo and radio therapy for 8 weeks. The care home manager was great, moving me to diversional therapist (i'd done that before) so i could reduce my hours and fit it with Peter's daily treatments which i went to with him and my kids. As his treatment started to take it's toll it was clear he needed my support, so i finished my last shift at the care home on Dec 31st 2004 and my life changed. Peter had been a builder and we both had a good income, a nice lifestyle and kids were well looked after. But now it seemed to all fade away and i went through massive changes, we all did. We'd always hoped he would be the first one to survive this rare cancer but in Aug 2008 he passed over. Because Peter had known this he decided we had to learn to live without him and he started to put things into place that would devastate me and my kids and start a ball of lies and deceit that benefitted him as it made it easier to come to terms with not being with us. I know he regretted his decisions.
My life as i'd known it had ended Dec 31st 2004 but at the end of 2013, i had a call from a friend who i'd known since the age of 19 and who i'd worked with in the home, to say my job had come open, though it had on many occasions over the years but for some reason i came to his mind then, he'd spoke to the manager and she'd asked me to go in..it was Dec 2013 and i restarted my job Jan 2014..i remember thoughts coming into my mind "10 years virtually to the day" , " I was back living my life", and "my life had continued in the exact same spot" as it had seemed to come apart. So the 10 year cycle had started Dec 2004 and ended Jan 2014..I wouldn't change anything about those 10 years as i found a lot out about myself, my strength and how people can see things in a totally different perspective to how they actually are. It made me see how negative people will make anything fit to how they want it to look so it suits them, and how people's misconceptions can be twisted due to what's going on around them and how to some people 2 + 2 make 39, 42, 75 etc anything rather than 2 + 2 actually making 4. I remember going through the worst of that time and hearing the words "the truth will out" and not realising yes the truth does come out eventually! But more on that in future blogs...
So life definately comes in life cycles, if you look back over events and happenings in your life, you'll see your cycles
I've been regressed twice and both times helped me immensely, these are my thoughts on it.
I was regressed as i thought it might help me understand myself and it did. Whether i've actually lived those 2 lives or because i'm human and my brain has tried to make sense in a way i would understand i really don't know.
I do know from regression i understood myself more than i did before, and in some ways helped with my mediumship as i understood myself, for example, i could understand the reasons behind my thinking, see why illnesses appear, understand why i am how i am and who i am.
It did release a lot of emotions and the first time i was regressed i did cry throughout the experience but felt better afterwards.
You should never go through a passing in regression and to me, whether thats an actual past life passing or again, my brain making sense of a traumatic experience without me actually remembering that experience i don't know.
The 2 people that regressed me were for me amazing and i could definately say there was no planting seeds in my mind or suggestive thoughts that might have led me to think or feel the way i did, they asked questions like "what year is it" "what clothes was i wearing" , "did i work" and "did i recognise the area" etc and questions along those lines, so nothing that could lead me. In the first regression i was a male in Kentucky in the mid 1800's (I've never been to Kentucky or America), in the second regression again i was a male in London's east end in the late 1800's (i've been to London once, for 2 days to windsor castle and the millenium dome, so definately not the east end of London)
It does involve a hypnosis, which not everyone can be hypnotised, but if you are going to be regressed look into it carefully as there are a lot of people that say it takes hours and many times, but in my opinion it doesn't, it takes approx 20/30 mins as you can't stay "under" for too long, and don't let anyone feed you seeds of suggestions let your own thoughts come through.
NO NO and NO!
A lot of people who don't understand mediumship do say it's mind reading, but it's definately not, how could it be, when some of the things you don't even know yourself and have to go away and ask, you then find out it's right?
Mental mediums work through the mind via a series of pictures, thoughts, feelings which we call the psychic senses transferred to them via spiritual energy, but we don't read from the mind, otherwise you would know everything we tell you.
A mental medium is a medium who passes messages orally from spiritual connections
Just like in the physical body, if we've had illness or upset it can deplete our energies and it can take some of us a little while to pull ourselves round and we have friends and family rally round helping and looking after us. Same happens when we pass over, there's an adjustment period where some loved ones pick up their energy and adjust and friends and family in the spirit side of life rally round, helping with the adjustment.
When we're born physically we start to learn from family and friends, we go to school, some will go onto college or university to further their learning. When we passover it's a death, ending or loss to us but, its a birth to the spirit side so the learning and growing begins but this time it's not physically growing but a mind expansion, energy growth. Again some spirits go on to develop further which is where the further education comes in, the shedding of emotional scars, the rising above, the purer energy. So on the spirit side of life there is what we call the halls of learning where this takes place.
It is very similar to a parallel universe if you like.
So there is no death only eternal life
Loved ones over in spirit will be trying in some way to get through to you, but if our grief is too much it can hold them back or we can miss the signs and messages. A lot of people say they can't come through for 6 months but they can and do, depending on your grief.
It means different things to different people, to me it means reflecting on the not so good memories that can overwhelm us because we still carry a mixed bag of emotions. As each emotion opens or we go deeper into our memories, perhaps specific situations, times or to do with certain people and we feel the emotion, a lot of us close the door but in fact, we should be opening the door as much as we can bear and as we do, confront our emotions and allow them to come through but start to look at the not so good memory in a different way to allow the healing to take place, which then allows ourselves to rid ourselves of the hurt or pain we feel. As we contemplate or rethink our emotions we're opening up the possibilities of changing our understanding, maybe seeing things in a different way and understanding reasons, heightened emotions and others thinking and we therefore can rationalise things that decrase pain we hold. It may take a few days or longer to deal with each step forward or opening that door more, but at each step our own healing takes place to move us forward to a new understanding of our own reactions. Maybe we blame ourselves too much instead of proportioning blame or maybe we blame others instead of taking blame ourselves when in fact the reality is, once you contemplate and rethink things turning them this way and that, you might actually find there's no blame just reactions which can become distorted and we can sometimes cause our own emotional distress which we hold onto. Our minds are the strongest muscle we have and at times can cause a vicious circle of reactions which can be easy to fall into. For some people, carrying a burden or issue since childhood can start to weigh heavy as we bury it with other issues due to the original issue and so on and so on, then they get so far buried it can be so hard to uravel or they feel so worn down it can feel like too much of an effort so they don't deal with it and carry on burying.
When opening the door to look within ourselves can be hard, a lot of people feel emotionally drained which can make us feel physically tired. It's scientifically proven our body stores emotional scars which can weigh us down and cause illnesses, I'm not saying you'll become illness free as you look within, but you will feel better and illnesses may start to relieve.
If there are emotional issues you can't face fully, the best thing you can do is not lay blame, but forgive yourself or the situation if you can't forgive a person and accept whatever happened was your only route or way of coping at that time.
When a weight is lifted you feel a release and actually do feel better for it, the secret is not allowing yourself to slip back down again but keep going.
Looking within also means looking at your flaws and weaknesses and working on those, maybe looking at yourself through someone else's eyes. We never see ourself as other's see us, have you been selfish lately, maybe too wrapped in yourself to notice what's going on with others? Have you noticed friends seeming to back off for seemingly no reason? try taking a moment to look within and look at your actions, behaviour etc
Spiritual growth as a person starts within.
Nearly 11 years ago i lost my husband and due to horrific accusations that i wouldn't subject anyone to, i spent a time in a suicidal, depressed state, seen councellors and everything that goes with it, cutting people off etc for a long time. Then the thoughts kept coming in and i started to reflect, turning everything round and understanding how those ex family members could make accusations, with the help of a fantastic councellor i started to look within and realised that they were trying to transfer what they had done, thought or felt guilty about over onto me to ease their own feelings but they still carry those emotions. Though i still can't forgive them i have forgiven the situation and myself and accepted my choices were the best i could make in the situation. I really did feel a weight lift from me and started to see things in a clearer way. The councellor suggested i write all my thoughts and events at that time down, which i did over a few years as i opened up the emotions. It was then suggested i turn it into a book which i have been writing or putting it into order i should say. As yet my book remains unpublished and without a title as i still continue to look within on a daily basis and add to it, also checking things legally.
I'm hoping to have it published by the end of 2019/2020.
The difference between someone who's been developed and someone undeveloped is very significant. When your developed you will have a better understanding of how you receive communications via your psychic senses and also which senses your working with, if undeveloped you won't understand as much and you may even misunderstand and miss some of the communication or if you misunderstand you may give the total wrong information. Also if undeveloped you may mistakenly claim to be a medium when really working psychically.
personal development is also an integral part of becoming a "better you" or opening to spirit
So for me, development is important for mediums, psychics and all lightworkers.
There are 3 types of readings really
Past present and future would basically be covered in a psychic reading as everything is in your aura and is the energy that is being read. Psychic readings would also cover the future.
I've had people say they want a future reading, a relationship reading etc and it's actually a psychic reading they mean, as over the years different psychics and mediums have called them by different names, usually to make them stand out from the rest.
Read on and you might be surprised how it can actually help you in many ways!
Development is different for everyone and the outcome will come in different ways. Mediation or clearing the mind plays a big part of development, it can help to balance your thoughts, help you make healthier choices for yourself , aid some health conditions and helps dramatically reduce stress levels alongside many more benefits.
We all carry emotional baggage of some kind, as we grow spiritually you might find painful emotional memories start to come to the front of your mind, giving you the chance to face each one step by step or bit by bit, some people can process things quicker and others take a bit more time. As we start to face our baggage it heals the emotions, and moves us that step closer to being at peace within our minds. When we start to open memories you'll find more start to come through, as a medium it's best to regularly reflect over ourselves and look within, where we have painful emotions stored and understand them. As we work with our own memories, if we have something that we can't face or handle we can be stunting our development on a mediumistic level but, we can still be growing on a spiritual level if that is where the development is needed first. So if you're holding yourself back from self healing it could affect your connections, i'm not saying we all have to deal with everything but, this is where everyone's progression in development is different as we all develop at a different rate. A lot of people, without realising it, hold themself to a psychic level, look at it this way, we lock our emotional away to the back of our minds, so keeping them in not allowing us to open them up, keeping a barrier up. In mediumship/psychic awareness you could be keeping yourself stunted by not unfolding properly or understanding properly what you are recieving, which would mean you'd be keeping yourself on a psychic level. Opening your emotions and setting your intention to deal with emotional wounds would reflect in your mediumship by allowing you to unfold what you're recieving as your level of understanding would be better and you'd be opening your mind instead of closing your mind, which is what happens when we don't want to deal with our issues of any kind.
So some people will get personal development which in turn is spiritual growth

In my opinion, "bad spirits" don't exist, i don't know anyone thats met any, encountered any or had any proof of them existing.
There are negative energies which are created by ourselves in many ways, which then become fear based and thoughts are living things, so we can manifest them, but they would be our own understanding. For example, we've all watched horror films, heard ghost stories, been scared and got a "buzz" from it then laughed about being scared. Because we are human and our brains need to make sense of things, because its stored in our mind/brain what we've watched or heard, our brain tells us it's a demon, monster or whatever kind of horror films/stories we've watched and fear creeps in and we believe it thinking there's scary things with horns or red demonic eyes watching us or around us, when really it's our own understanding telling us this. So if you're experiencing bumps in the night, lights flashing, moving objects, shadows around you and maybe a lot more and thinking its a "bad spirit", check your thoughts and think again..maybe it's a deceased loved one trying to get in touch to let you know they've arrived and ok or maybe it's someone's birthday or a special date and they're trying to let you know "WE'RE HERE TOO!".
A few years ago a lady got in touch asking me to "cleanse" her house as she'd seen demons with green eyes and been touched inappropriately, heard noises on her stairs and felt pinned down in bed, i asked what tv shows she watched on a regular basis, (ghost hunting programmes for quite a few hours a day). I did go to see her and told her it was her deceased son, he wasn't touching her inappropriately but actually sitting in her lap like he'd used to, playing on the bottom few steps like he used to and climbing on her in bed like he used to and gave more evidence of him, she'd still had the grief of losing him hanging over her, because she hadn't understood and watched the ghosty/scary programmes, her mind automatically decided it was the fear side thus creating the green eyed demons she was seeing, once i spoke to her and explained her train of thought was possibly on the more negative side because of grief and depression and how the psychic energy she was giving off (psychic energy is earthly) was building and it seemed to be manifesting to everyone else living in the home, stress was adding to the psychic energy and building, it was all fear based and she was in fact manifesting it and because she was believing it so were her other children. Once she realised it was her son and no need to be frightened, she felt the energy change while i was talking to her, it was lighter. She recently got in touch to let me know she'd stopped watching as many horror shows/films and had dealt with her grief and depression and since my visit had looked at happenings in a totally different way and things had truly been better.
At times of stress, depression, loss, health worries or major worries etc is when we have the most negative thoughts and it's how we deal with them or react to them.
It's recognising whats going on around you too that can attract those negative thoughts, A few years ago a lady got in touch, her daughter had seen a "bad man" , i went to see her, i picked up where she'd seen him and all the nasty things that had been happening which i won't go into but it was very disturbing for her daughter and all the family. The lady in question had been in very abusive relationships, abused as a child, very low self esteem and no self worth, unfortunately she saw herself as a victim and putting herself and her children in that position, because she'd believed (because of abuse as a child) attention only came in certain ways, so she'd continued drawing attention in negative ways and her children had copied what they saw, it was in fact psychic energy manifesting from her thoughts which she'd spoken to her young children about. So there was no "bad man" but more their brains need of trying to make sense of what was going in their thoughts and manifesting.
Spirits get blamed for lots of things, but it's usually psychic energy which is what we as living beings give off.
I hear a lot about "shadow people" and again it depends on your thought pattern and which side of fear you sit on, it's usually an awareness of spirit starting to come in, seeing shadows out the corner of your eye and looking and no one being there, shadows appearing around you or catching glimpses of shadows. Again it depends which side of fear you sit on, i'm not suggesting we don't be frightened of anything as its a human emotion which we all have, same as any emotion its being rational and checking our thoughts. If your looking at it from a fear based side, then its kind of your negative emotions and thoughts creeping in.
If you go somewhere and meet a new person without knowing that person, think to yourself they don't like you, it could be subconciously there's something about them that you don't like or maybe their energy doesnt gel with yours, it will repel and we tell ourselves it's them, its never us!
Check your thoughts as it just might surprise you to find it's your own thoughts manifesting...
