How I made contact with the Spirit Realm

How I made contact with the Spirit Realm

My deliberate journey with Spirit about 14 years ago. My tale isn’t an original one: I was as a lost teenager (I want to lie and say I was angst-filled but I wasn’t, the height of my misdemeanour was bunking school and getting liquored up on ciders) who didn’t know where to fit in. Yep, I was a badass **insert eye-roll** who didn’t find meaning in the Christian lifestyle that I was raised in.
 
I spent hours at the local library researching anything related to the occult and metaphysics. Let me deviate for a second here, don’t worry I’ll return to my riveting story soon, occult does not mean dark or sinister as thought. It simply means hidden, that which cannot be perceived with the physical senses.
 
Oh yes, back to my edge-of-your-seat inducing visits to the library, I absorbed as much as I could from hand reflexology to demonology. From essential oils to palm reading, Hermione had nothing on me. I would then spend a chunk of my time reading at the park which I had to cross to get to said library (Maynardville park). My love affair with that park ended when someone tried to proposition me to bump uglies.
 
No judgement to anyone if that’s your jam but at 15, my sexuality might as well have been the Laws of Thermodynamics. It was something I wasn’t close to figuring out. 
 
A while later, I dedicated myself to the Old Ones (a super creepy name for the gods…because witches are dramatic AF).
 
How was I to know that moment, standing in our one bedroom apartment, dedicating myself to the highest good would be a doorway to the strange, unusual and just all out fun at times.?! It began with some very unusual happenings ,which I’ll get to into again, the gist is that my life with Spirit was different.
 
My path led me to a variety of souls but it was only three years later, when I came out of the broom closet and let my witchy flag fly. It started conversations and heated debates. One lesson became clear, I couldn’t go back to being ‘normal’, whatever dafuq that means.
 
In coming posts I’ll give some info on the world that surrounds and permeates our own (calm down Star Wars enthusiasts, I’m not starting Jedi training anytime soon) and how to know if a Spirit has sent you a friend request. If one has been causing mischief and how to kick it’s ass to the curb. How you can speak with and see spirits, and how you can bring them in your daily life. Keep all hands and feet in the ride at all times and observe these lessons with an open heart and an open mind, you’ll be hundreds.
 
 I’d also like to state that I am not an expert nor do I consider myself one. Please don’t use any information provided to substitute professional medical or psychological help. The Spirit world is there to compliment to the various options available to us on this plane.  
 

If you want to learn about the world that surrounds and permeates our own (calm down Star Wars enthusiasts, I’m not starting Jedi training anytime soon, respect to Yoda though), how to know if a Spirit has decided to befriend you or add you to its naughty list. How to speak with and how to see spirits, how to bring them in your daily life, get rid of or even just take a tour of the Spirit world then buckle up. Keep all hands and feet in the ride at all times and observe these lessons with an open heart and an open mind and you’ll be hundreds.

I’d also like to state that I am not an expert, nor do I consider myself one, so please don’t use any information provided to substitute professional medical or psychological help. The Spirit world is there to be used to compliment to the various options available to us on this plane.  

Why SantaClarita-Woke?

Learning to balance the psychic with every day life
There is a fantastic show on Netflix by the name of SantaClarita diet, the premise is that Sheila (portrayed by Drew Barrymore) becomes a zombie. Her husband and family have to deal with her inner and outer changes as best they can. While keeping up the façade of being a humdrum, suburban family, they must balance her cannibalistic culinary cravings
 
As they grow, the family must deal with an array of supernatural hurdles and super-normal ones too. They do so with the utmost levity, love and wit that they can muster. Trying and sometimes often failing to overcome these challenges. The show itself is a mixture a hilarious mixture of the supernatural but also comments how hard we work to keep up with the Joneses. I won’t go into discussing the content of the show but I can’t think of a better way of dealing with life. 
 
The supernatural is there to help us and teach us to take ourselves less seriously but it’s an aid, not a crutch. It’s enmeshed with our concept of the mundane and the hot, beautiful mess that life can be. Just as you have a bestie who’s ready to swoop in at the moment you learn that bae’s been diddling a close friend, so too do you have a guardian angel wrapping its wings around you. In fact, you have a whole team of non-physical friends waiting to wrap you in their warmth and love. The real magic lies in simply asking. The more we walk this path, the more we actually learn about ourselves.

Why did I decide to write about Spirit?

Quick disclaimer, when I used ‘spirit’ I am referring to an intelligence without a body, when I use the word ‘Spirit’ I use it as an umbrella term for my guides and higher guiding force.Now more than ever humanity needs a connection to each other and a higher power
 
My platform isn’t about social media but I feel in our efforts to connect we’ve actually created so much distance.(here’s a LOL-inducing Ted-talk vid on the subject: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQigUH0vZSE). I have mad respect for priests, imams, rabbis and so on but Spirit is accessible to anyone and everyone. I appreciate the time and effort these individuals put in but you have exactly the same connection that they do. It does require belief, dedication and most of all being open to something bigger than yourself.
 
I’m not some monk tucked away in a monastery, I’m your everyday Joe, trying to make it through this rat race with his mind mostly intact. I have bills to pay, I have my romantic turmoils and victories and I have the most loving and supportive family you could ask for. But my point, I’m immediately losing what little street cred I have here, to quote High School Musical 3 is ‘We’re all in this together’ and we can use all of the help that we can get. Also Zack Efron really grew up nicely…grrrrr.

If you want to continue your current rapport with Spirit, have at it, if you want to deepen it then here are some tools for you. But do what feels right for you. I’m a firm believer in there not being one path to truth/enlightenment but paths that are right for us. Also, don’t freak out here but the rules aren’t set in stone. Contrary to what we’re told when we swap our diapers for big boy undies, you get to experiment and see what works for you. I can almost guarantee a bolt of lightning won’t strike you down.

In a nustshell:

*The supernatural is just a part of our universe that we don’t understand yet

*We have guides in all shape and size who are patiently waiting until we’re ready to start working with them

*Working with Spirit requires time, dedication and open mind but it’s guaranteed to better one’s life and the way we see the world.
