WHEN I CONNECT WITH SPIRIT HOW DO I TRANSLATE?

By the very meaning of the word “medium” we are the in between. We are the contact between two worlds and we have a very special job to do, the deceased rely on us to hear and speak for them and the living rely on us to relay that message. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you have been practicing your Claire abilities and have been picking up on those who have passed and now you are saying “what do I do with this information?”

I wish that I could say that the answer is always easy, but unfortunately it isn’t always cut and dry. We have to take the information we get and decide when to put it into action, when is the right moment to give a message to a person? If you have intentionally stepped into a situation to do a reading then the answer is of course easy, tell the person you are helping the message. Easy peasy. Now if you are wandering around the food store or mall or public park and you get the tingle and a message starts coming in your task could be tremendously difficult to handle, that’s the truth for seasoned mediums and beginners. On television we see mediums do this task with ease and they make it look very simple and very matter of fact. In my opinion it is not that easy, even for them.

If I wish to speak to those who pass I have to do a little ritual to let them know I am ready to talk, if I walked around ready to go all the time I would be exhausted. It is my opinion that these other professionals open themselves up for the television segment so that they can get the dramatic footage of the reading out in the public setting, I am not saying that this is a set up! Just that they are opening up to do a reading, got it? Good! Moving on, when we are open all the time and this is especially when we are first learning we tend to get all kinds of information and spirits who want to talk, we have to ask ourselves “Who is the message for and are they ready to hear it?” I try my best to keep away from this type of reading, I have not had any negative come from them but if I were to make it routine then I could find myself doing them to the point of no end and potentially upsetting the people around me. My advice to you is to make sure you have a signal to start and end readings. I take several deep breaths and rub my hands together and state “I am ready to listen.” The spirits then know I am ready.

Let’s say for the sake of the article that you are getting a strong message and it needs to come out, how do you interpret what is coming to you and who it is for? In my experience I have been lucky, in the way that the person who the message is for is right in front of me and couldn’t be any more clear who I am supposed to look for. With that I would say that most times that will be the case, and every once in a while you will get incomplete information or just a name and have no idea what to do with it. When that happens to me I simply apologize and tell the spirit to come to me when there is a better chance to convey the message, this works every time. Recently I was asked how can you find someone if you have a message for them? I don’t think that there is a simple answer but you can put the intention into the universe by stating that you are looking for the recipient of that message. The Universe is pretty cool, if the message is relayable it will be delivered one way or another.

After you identify who the message is for you need to speak for the deceased, this can be tricky. First you have to make sure the living person is receptive to the idea that you are a medium and someone wants to speak to them from the other side. I would suggest being polite and respectful of course and asking them how they feel about the subject of mediums. Most times I think the person is receptive because the spirit would not have tried to make contact otherwise. Next you have to relax a little and remember that the message is not for you, it is for the person or people in front of you. When the names, images and words come to your mind it is very important to let them out exactly how you see them without adding your own filter or spin on it. By dropping your interpritation on the message you will leave it untainted and exactly how the spirit intends to convey it. For instance if I were to see a red fire hydrant I would say that I see a red fire hydrant, not that I see a fireman or a fire truck or ask about fire. This is because I could be missing the point of the image. The fire hydrant could be a funny decoration or the key point to a story that all involved have shared and there was never a fire or firemen, just that red fire hydrant.

If you get names and they sound funny that is ok! We cannot know every name ever, believe me. Even if you were to read a big book of names you couldn’t commit them all to memory and make them useful, it would be a waste of time. Instead when you hear a name, ask for it to be spelled out and if that doesn’t work ask for them to sound it out. Mimic the sound that you can hear in your head and try to pronounce it, you will be astounded when the person receiving the message says the name and it’s exactly what you thought it would be. This goes the same for everything else, dates and numbers and places and objects. If you are unsure ask spirit to make it more clear or put it into better context.

Do not be frustrated with spirit or readee if things aren’t going as well as you’d hoped. I like to make it a habit to write all the information that I get down on notebook paper. This allows for me to look at my train of thought and also be able to go back to older info that could help a little while into the reading. This also helps when nothing is making sense and the reading has come to an end, you can leave the writing with the client and let them match things up. Many times the client will call days later and tell you that you were spot on with information but that they were unaware or that they had forgotten about it. Keep practicing and be sure of yourself because you are doing great!

I FEEL OTHER PEOPLES EMOTIONS AND PHYSICAL FEELINGS, WHATS WRONG WITH ME?

In the last few days I have come across people who have stated that they can feel other people’s emotions and physical pain. They then asked if that was normal or if there was something wrong with them. Good news! If this sounds like you, you are just fine! You are what is called an “empath.” You’ve of course heard about empathy or feeling empathetic towards someone or their situation right? This gift is an actual physical and mental manifestation of that statement, a great example is when someone says they are having sympathy pains for someone close. Like when a woman is in labor and the man is having stomach pain or a child injures themselves and the parent can feel the physical pain the child is in, being an empath is just like that except it comes from every person around you. There are cases of people who are strong empaths not even being able to watch news casts do to the fact of so many bad stories involving death or pain.

Is being an empath an exaggeration of your own feelings or are you really feeling what the other person is feeling?  I am an empath I can say that it is not the case for me  at all, being over emotional or easily put into physical pain are not traits that I have. I would say that if you are reading this and what I have said so far makes sense that you are the same and have the gift or as some people have said the curse of being an empath. Sometimes being out in public can be unbearable and pushes us into feeling anxious and sick and possibly even causes us to feel depressed. Taking in all the emotions that people around you are feeling and mixing them together is pretty miserable. I am not a Doctor or medically trained, and it is only my opinion but I do believe that many empaths become addicts of drugs and alcohol and other bad vices. These people do to not understand how sensitive they are to other people’s emotions. In an attempt to dull what they are experiencing they turn to substance abuse or other outlets that truly do not bring permanent relief and often times compound the problem.

Well what do we do when we feel these overwhelming emotions or the physical pain of a stranger? No one wants to feel like a miserable person if they are normally very happy and healthy. We have a few defenses against taking on other people’s baggage; they include some very basic things like meditations and visualizations. Now, I have stated before that I am a no nonsense kind of person when it comes to these topics so I have taken the things that work for me and am bringing them to you. They are part of the solid foundation that I have built for myself and I do believe will work for most people who find this site. First and foremost my favorite, meditations! Clearing your mind is always going to be the quickest way to feeling better.

If you are in the supermarket or other really public place and feel the panic and depression or anxiety start to come over you simply take a few deep breaths through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Imagine all of the emotions that you are having leaving your body when you exhale. Close your eyes briefly and ask yourself if you are sad or upset at all, if the answer is no then imagine a white canvas in front of you and make sure you put your own emotion there. You should not be feeling anyone else’s energy in your field at all and if you do, go back to your breathing and keep pushing that nasty feeling out until you are relaxed again. Make sure to tell yourself that you are fine and that there is nothing that is allowed into your energy field that will affect you in a negative or subvert way. Truly your words have the ability to get you out of harm’s way and back to your day.

The other piece of advice that I would offer is to buy a stone, I use obsidian and tourmaline. They are two crystals that have natural energies that offer grounding, centering and protection against negative vibes. Yes I do believe in the power of crystals, even in my no nonsense approach there is a spot for a pocket full of rocks. Why you ask? Well because even if you don’t believe in the power of the stones you can believe in the intentions that are attached to them. So if you picked up a pebble and said “This is my protection rock and it will keep me safe from bad vibes” then it will, because your words and thoughts have power and influence over everything around you. Your intention of the stone being protective will bring you a piece of mind when you grab it during times of high anxiety or bad feelings. Your own energy infused with an object to focus on and your intention to not be taken over by others baggage will be enough to keep you protected.

That’s the key word when you are an empath “protection.” There are many other ways besides meditation and that includes prayer and positive affirmations and even a personal favorite of mine, rubbing sea salt on while taking a shower. Sea salt is an excellent way to break energy fields and cleans our own Aura fields(something we will go over another time). In the mean time I want you to practice deep breaths, clearing your mind and projecting your own will outward to keep yourself from feeling what everyone else is going through. Your ability to protect yourself is in your hands, pick up some of the tools I have given you and go with it, don’t stop here either. Go ahead and get on that Google and search “empath.” Don’t stop until you have the answers you are looking for. If you have any questions please feel free to email me scottynjmedium@gmial.com and I can discuss it further with you if you like. Stay safe and remember to practice, practice, and practice!

If I Tell people I see Ghosts they will think I am crazy.

If I tell people I see ghosts they will think I am crazy. If I had a dollar for every time I had that thought in my life I would have enough money to pay someone to write this for me. Seriously, we all feel that way. Every one of us who have a bit of the gift or the full version of it has that thought, and why wouldn’t we? When people say they can hear or see something no one else can we think that there is a mental health issue with that person or that they are crazy or talking to their dog and listening to the directions Fido is giving on how to make his steak properly. Sure out there in the world there are people who do need help and should be questioning the things that they hear, what makes us different? For starters the voices are gentle and the people we see are not severely angry and telling us to hurt ourselves or anyone else. We experience for the most part spirits who are looking for help, or those who are just roaming and looking to get some attention or tell a story. I am not a Doctor and nothing you read here should be taken as medical advice, if you feel you need to speak to a professional than do so. There is never anything wrong with looking to a professional for help.

One of the things that you should be asking yourself is “How often do I experience seeing or hearing spirits and where does it occur the most often?” This could help you determine if you are living in a very active environment or if you are a magnet and experience phenomenon everywhere. As a matter of fact it could be both and that’s great too. So, when did you start noticing that you could see hear and talk to people who weren’t there? How did you know the difference between live people and spirits? Does this sound familiar? As a child I would carry on conversations with people and my parents would tell me to stop because there was no one there. I would walk into buildings and homes and know the names of people who lived there and that they had passed on. I would have visitors in my room at night and they would bother me and frighten me, my parents would just chalk it up to over active imagination and childish behavior. Is any of that ringing a bell? Probably right and now that you are older and reading this it is starting to flood back to you and the memories are very similar to what you are reading.

It’s wonderful to have such a great gift, or it’s awful. That depends on who you ask, I love it but I know very gifted folks who just want to turn it off and lead a “normal” life. I have news for them and everyone else, it is more normal to be so connected to the spirit world than it is to be so disconnected like our society has become. Not to get all preachy, I am just saying that looking back at recorded human history that our ancestors had much more spiritual bases for living and we seem to have lost that. It’s ok though because right now there is a huge amount of people waking up every morning and realizing that there is more out there and they are becoming open to the things we are discussing here. That’s what is important, not that other people are accepting of what we can do but that it is on more people’s minds and that makes the connection to the spirit world stronger. The veil gets thinner every time another person becomes more accepting that there may be more out there than what we perceive on the physical plane.

Hold on Scott, what the heck is the veil and what do you mean it gets easier for us? The veil simply is a reference to what separates our physical world to the next dimension and the spirit world. I once heard a Medium say that the next dimension was only 3 feet in front of us at all times. Think about that for a few minutes, it makes what we are talking about a little more tangible. The idea that the more people who are accepting of any idea is the concept of collective thought. For example, one person dreamt that as humans we could go into outer space then that idea caught on and more people thought it was possible and that moved the idea and concept forward to the point that it happened. If a million people are saying that they believe that there is another world or dimension and there are those who can tap into it and communicate with beings there than that is a strong collective thought. If ten million people accepted and believed it then it would be a tremendously strong idea and make the overall phenomenon easier to attain. That collective thought also affects people who may not have a psychic bone in their body, and it’s just enough that if you told them you had gifts that allowed spirit communication that they would not scoff or blow you off or think you were crazy.

I myself have been experiencing this more than I have ever in my life. I have to give a huge thanks to the television people who gave all the ghost hunters and mediums a show on major networks a shot. Those people have increased the acceptance that there may be more to life than what we just see in front of us. They have shown us that there are forces that can manipulate electronics, talk to an audio recorder and even manifest as shadows on film. Does this turn a skeptic into a believer? I don’t think so but it certainly does put a seed of thought in them that there could be something to it. The same things with the famous mediums and psychics on television, they often have segments where they are in public and give random strangers a message from a deceased relative. Does this make a believer of everyone? No but it sure does make folks feel good and give them hope that there is more out there and when we pass that it’s not darkness and nothing to look forward to.

This brings me to my point; don’t be afraid to exercise your gifts. Don’t be afraid to tell your family or friends about what you can do. You would be surprised at how accepting they will be, now if they are not I wouldn’t recommend trying to shove it down their throats. That’s also not healthy and not what we are here to do. Simply put it out there and gauge what they say, see of you will get that support that you are looking for. If you are not getting any support or they do think you are crazy it may be best to just branch out and find other local people who are like minded as you are and find support in them.  In no time at all your abilities will manifest themselves and your courage and confidence will develop with them. Remember that you can always come here and ask questions and feel free to comment and look for help. That’s what this is all about. Remember to practice and don’t doubt yourself, we have a ways to go together and this is just the start. See you next time.

The Third Eye

SCOTTYTHENJMEDIUM.COM

THE THIRD EYE

I am ready to see what else you have to offer Scott, what’s next? I’m going to talk to you about an eye you didn’t know you had, or maybe you did and didn’t know what it was or how to use it. It is what we psychics call “The Third Eye.” Don’t let the idea of having a third eye scare you away, you’ve had it your whole life and more than likely have used it a few times unknowingly. The third eye is located between your eyes and between your ears and is inside your head, it is not like your other eyes though. It is called the pineal gland and it is located on the brain, you can google it when you have the time, the placement is only mildly important and the physicality of it is not really important to us here at this level.

When I was young I would take my pointer finger and close my two physical eyes and slowly move my outstretched finger toward my forehead until it got super tingly. This is something that I thought was normal and that everyone could do, little did I know that wasn’t true and that I was activating my third eye. At the time I had never heard of the third eye and I had never heard of being psychic and I certainly had no idea of the journey ahead of me.  As I got older an my abilities got stronger I investigated and found what the third eye was and what it did, and why when I would play my game that I would have more concentrated feelings and emotions. Have you ever felt that tingle in the center of your forehead or any pressure? What were the circumstances?

Now I am going to give you a quick exercise to try, it’s my little childhood game so it’s fun.  First take a deep breath through your nose and feel it go into your belly, now exhale and let it out your mouth. After you have done this several times and feel nice and relaxed move to the second step. This is next part, I want you to close your eyes and clear your mind. Let go of all the things on your mind, the bills the noise the family and all your troubles, imagine a blank movie screen. The third step is to slowly move your finger toward the center of your head. Are you starting to feel anything physically or are you getting any images that you can see with your eyes closed?  Don’t be surprised if you see colors and feel pressure and or tingling in the center of your forehead. If this feels uncomfortable go ahead and stop, rub your forehead and do it again when you are ready. This simple exercise is the easiest way of opening that third eye, it is a simple exercise and can be done just about anywhere. Just do this a few times a week and it will help you focus on using that third eye when it is needed. Eventually just thinking about doing this exercise will activate your third eye, mine is tingling as I write this and that is how powerful a tool this is.

Scott, ok here’s the thing, when is it going to be needed? I can tell you when I use it and how, this can be a guide for how you can use your third eye or simply a jumping point for you to start your own journey on what to do with it. I use it when I get that feeling in my gut that says I need to pay attention or that there is more to a situation than I am picking up with my other five senses. Let’s  say I walk into a home of a friend and I get a nagging feeling that there is someone who wants to talk that I don’t see and no one else is acknowledging, I simply close my eyes and concentrate on my third eye. I take several deep breaths and let images come to me in my little movie theater in my head, the third eye projects images on the screen and I get the information I need. Sometimes it’s a name or a photo of a person who wants to communicate or just a sprit roaming around the house that wants to be acknowledged.  After this starts happening to you it’s important to remember to not be scared, nothing is going to hurt you and you are in control of everything happening.

With that I can also tell you that this tool is very handy for those of us who get feelings that we can’t shake and need to express in some form. Imagine that you have your cell phone out and are getting messages but your screen isn’t displaying the information, you know that there is a message but without the screen you can’t see who is trying to reach you or what they want. This amazing gift that we all possess is the same thing but it is built into us, we just need to learn how to access it and use it. The next time you get that unshakable feeling that you need to know something, close your eyes and preform the exercise from above. What images or words are you receiving, what do they mean and how do they relate to what you are doing?

The most important lesson I can teach every time with each technique and I will repeat often is that you should not second guess yourself. Validation will come to you in ways that will surprise you, when you are least expecting it and in forms you couldn’t guess. I know that sounds kind of cryptic but just remember that when you are getting information it is not always strait forward and to the point, as an example I once received an image of an orchid flower with a fire in the center of it. What the heck did that mean? Well I was doing a reading for a woman and she understood it completely, a friend of her had recently passed in a fire and at the funeral there were orchids everywhere. So that was validation of who I was talking to and helped me connect to that person better. Don’t be frustrated if at first information is scattered and kind of all over the place, you will get better with practice and focus. If you had never written a note with your weak hand you wouldn’t expect to write a perfect letter to someone the first try. The letters and punctuation would look sloppy and poorly done but with practice it would get better and this is what we are working on here, even myself every day I have to practice and know that I work with a certain amount of room for error. Don’t be discouraged and keep practicing, until next time thanks for reading!

Our first story, together.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES

Let’s take a break from the flow for a minute and have a little fun in the form of a few ghost stories!  I love to tell a good ghost story and I hope you like to read them.  Several months ago I decided to take my wife to the movies, we were going to see Dead Pool in the opening week and it was sold out at our local Giantplex movie house. After a few minutes of enduring the usual ribbing of why I didn’t check beforehand if they were sold out we decided to go to a smaller and much older movie house in a small town that neighbors ours.

The town is nestled up against the Atlantic Ocean and has had its fair share of ghostly lore attached to it. It’s a middle class blue collar town with a mix of just about every type of person you could imagine. The theater is located on the main strip of the old town in succession of buildings all built together like one big store front down the quarter mile of concrete and glass on both sides. Walking up to the theater is very unassuming; it has the usual movie posters outside and the luring smell of over buttered popcorn wafting through the closed doors. My wife and I went into the theater where an enthused teenager was selling tickets for the next showing of the Marvel movie. Looking around I could see that the theater was pretty empty, the small lobby had no one in it but the three of us and in my normal humor I asked if there were any seats left. The kid behind the counter gave me the same look my own kid gives me when I make a bad dad joke, and promptly completed the transaction moving us on into the area that leads to the three small movie theaters inside.

The small lobby is decorated in dark red with gold trim and wooden panel walls, very classic movie house feel and that is part of the charm of this theater. I hadn’t been to this theater in years, my dad used to take me there when I was younger to see every movie I had pretty much ever seen. As I made it into my teenage years the big theater opened and we all kind of forgot about this little jewel. From here I’m going to say that fate brought me to this theater, who knew Ryan Reynolds playing a crazy comic book character would lead to such a life changing event?

While walking into theater room one I got that urge, the urge to look around for spirit or a spirit for that matter. I spotted an old clock the kind that people refer to as a Grandfather clock and probably the perfect clock to mention in a ghost story. After a brief look around the corners and down the narrow hall I didn’t spot anything that warranted a psychic look so we continued into the theater, which was empty besides two other movie goers and us. As we waited for the movie to start rolling I found my attention pulled to the first row of the theater where I spotted what I was looking for, a spirit. The ghost if you will, was very regular looking, in the way that he was dressed in a suit and had his grey hair combed over his bald spot. He looked back at me and we acknowledged each other, this wasn’t too normal for me but I wasn’t afraid because it was in the world of kind of normal. I mentioned to my wife that I could see him and she as usual told me that she could not see the invisible person I was talking about.

The movie played and we had a great time, I forgot the ghost was there and didn’t pay attention to him the rest of the time we were there, this could be the first step in the direction of what I did wrong that night. We made it home, a short 10 minute drive back to the house. I locked the doors and my wife made sure the children were in bed. I did my usual wind down for the evening, a little facebook and Instagram and got ready for bed. That night I had one of the worst nights sleep ever and so did my wife, I was tossing and turning and when I did fall asleep I felt like my skin was crawling and making me want to stay awake. The morning came and the day went by like any other day. That evening as we were getting ready for bed, my wife asked me to sleep on the couch if I was going to toss and turn all night. I agreed to that request because two nights of my wife not having a good night sleep could be detrimental to everyone’s wellbeing.

I made my nest on the couch and turned in for the night at about ten thirty or so. This is where if you get scared easy you may want to skip over to the end. I was woken up with an icy grip of two hands around my throat, pressing so hard that I could feel my airway collapsing and so much pressure I was sunk into the couch. I immediately thought that someone was in the house and trying to kill me. I started to flail my arms and with my eyes open I could not see a thing but what I can only describe as stars appearing before me as I lost breath. I couldn’t feel a body on top of me and this kicked in my psychic awareness, this is an attack by a spirit. I retreated into my head quickly, reciting every prayer I knew and begging for the help of my Guardian Angels, Guides and God. Half way through my second prayer the grip released and I was able to spring up from the couch fully awake. I saw my attacker in the form of a black shadow and chased it across my living room to the stairs that lead to the bedrooms. The shadow split into pieces and dissipated. I calmed my nerves down and said several more prayers and an intention to keep my home protected from that spirit and any others that were going to do me or my family harm.

This event lead me to make a desperate call for help to a local paranormal investigation team, the Paranormal Activity Research Society of NJ. I was able to write them an email of the account and ask them if they had ever heard any accounts of that theater having activity. Within a few hours my phone rang and the founder of the team was on the line with me, no doubt seeing if I was a cook or for real. After giving him the rundown of myself and my abilities he decided that there was  some validity to my tale. As fate would have it, he lived in the town where the theater was located and knew the owner. After reaching out to the owner of the theater my contact on the team was able to find out that there were stories about the theater but nothing was ever confirmed.

Fast forward a little bit, I was invited to be on the team and now am an active member. We were invited to investigate the theater whenever we were ready and will be doing so soon. I have not returned there personally yet and have no desire to, whatever is there was angry I had seen it and took its anger out on me in my home. It is important for everyone at every level to protect themselves from the spirits that roam, they are the same that they were in life and if they were angry alive then they are angry on the other side. If you come in contact with a spirit make sure that you say out loud before leaving the location that they are not welcome to follow you or leave the area they are in.

I hope you liked my story and I promise that there are many more plus there will be developments later on this story once we go to the theater to investigate. As always, thanks for reading and I hope to have you come back.   -Scotty

THE NO NONSENSE APPROACH TO BEING PSYCHIC

Hey there, I hope you have read the topic line and used your intuition to determine what this next article is about. Yup that’s right! We are going to go over some basics of psychic abilities and cut the things that I feel are kind of nonsense. I am not even going to mention what I feel those are because the people who subscribe to them are amazing, but we just want to get into it without the frills and such. With that, much love to all of you who have taught me and still continue to guide me on my path.

The first thing I learned that was super important in regards to developing as a psychic was that it takes practice.  Wait a minute, what do you mean practice? I can’t just wake up and use my psychic abilities? Well I have good news, yes you can! It just takes practice and patients to develop into the best you can be. I major league pitcher doesn’t just wake up and throw 6 different kinds of pitches with accuracy without practice. How do we practice you may ask? The answer to that isn’t as mystic as you may think, I have several steps that are easy and require almost no effort. First off you need to meditate, second you have to breathe and third you have to focus. Want to know more? Of course you do! Keep reading!

Meditation to some of us is a crazy idea of sitting in a pose at the top of a mountain chanting or sitting in some dull colored room with incense burning cross legged in a robe.  Meditation could be either of those but who the heck has time for that? I certainly don’t, with family and a full time job and doing all the other things in life I enjoy I can’t go do those things so I figured a way to meditate that everyone can do. First things first, what is meditation and how does it relate to being psychic? Well for me meditation is an inward look at myself where I reflect and travel through my thoughts to a quiet place in my mind and set the intention on furthering my psychic abilities. Scott, you are losing me again, inward looking and reflecting and intentions? This is an easy concept to explain. An inward look at yourself is simple, who are you as a person? You probably already know who you are and this is just reaffirmation to it. Wonderful, now the reflection part, with the ease of your mind and your eyes closed look at your day and what you have accomplished, this is a great thing to do during meditation because it helps close your thoughts. Later on you can do this to look at events in your life and eventually your whole life, we will get there on a later date though. Once you have reflected and quieted down your mind and put your day to rest for now you can focus and that comes in the way of setting an intention.

This gets its own spot because it’s the most important part of the mediation. Setting an intention is the point of the whole exercise, its why we have done the inward look and the reflecting. When you sit down to meditate it is important to know what the goal is at the end, why have you decided to meditate. For me I meditate before I do readings or before I go to a location that has paranormal activity or pretty much before any bigger than usual psychic event that I am going to participate in. My intentions when I meditate are usually something like “I am going to better my intuition as to help someone in need.” Then during my meditation I repeat that to myself and this keeps me focused on being the best I can be.  Your intention can be anything you want it to be, to do better on tests or to be more helpful or to develop your intuition further, literally anything you want it to be. So far so good, I know you are still there and eager to learn more.

The next two parts of breathing and focusing are probably the easiest for everyone because they are things that we have been doing our entire lives. The breathing is super important to developing; I have heard it referred to by amazing psychics as the “key” to the ability. Is there a proper way to breath to activate your psychic abilities? Of course there is, that’s why I am going to tell you. First while you are still lift your arms above your head, seriously do it. While your hands are up take a super deep breath in through your nose and feel it go into your belly, then exhale. You will feel a super calm come over you and that’s when you know it is working. Do this a few times until you feel super relaxed and when you get good enough to know what that feels like you can stop lifting your hands up over your head. The next part is the focus, a movie looks awful on the screen when it’s out of focus and that’s how I want you to think of your abilities, out of focus. How do you fix it and focus? This to me is the easiest part and the most fun because this is a big part of the pay off.

When you are practicing using your abilities I want you to imagine a big movie screen in your mind. See it? There are curtains on the side and its big and silver and you cannot wait to see what is going to appear in front of you. Let’s use the setup of naming something that has happened in the day of the life of a house mate or someone you are with often. Don’t tell them that they are a practice subject just yet, I want you to focus on them and picture that movie screen in your mind and make sure it is blank. Let information flow and project up onto that screen, what do you see? When you see an image or words I want you to either write it down or remember it that way later you can ask them about the information you have received. I can guarantee that you will get some aspects correct and knock the person you are talking to through a loop and get them interested in how you knew what you knew. The more you practice this the better you will get and the more confident you will become. In the weeks to come I will talk much more about how to do all of these things and offer more techniques that apply to you and your everyday life. Until then remember to meditate with intentions, breath and focus!

Let’s get Psychic

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE WORLD OF BEING PSYCHIC.

Hello there and welcome to the first blog post of an exciting adventure! If you are reading this then you have stumbled upon what I hope will be one of the most relatable and most useful guides to developing and using your natural psychic abilities. Well, are you psychic? Yes, the answer is yes! We all are, but maybe we don’t all call it that or want to say it that way because that would mean we are one of “those weird” people at the mall doing crystal ball readings and wearing flowing robes. I find it so laughable because that’s the way I used to think of psychics and mediums, if you are a person of a certain age you may recall a movie called “Ghost” where Whoopie Goldberg spoke to the other side. I mean that was extreme but that’s the general idea I feel we all have of psychics. Truly this couldn’t be any further from the truth. We all have a gift, or as I have found we all have “intuition.” Now, that’s just a great word for saying “we know things.”

Well Scotty, what do we “know?” Great question and I am super glad you asked. When we are going through the motions of everyday life we get hunches and feelings and our guts get tied into knots. The really strong feelings are the ones we tend to hold onto and use, unfortunately they are usually the big emotions and feelings. We feel anger and sadness and happiness and they result in our ups and downs, day to day. Well that is not news is it? Nope, not one bit and you already knew that. What you don’t know is that there are little things you pick up, little vibrations in your life that you do pick up on and either ignore or act on. I will use an easy example that most of us can relate to: On your way to work or school or any other place you travel to frequently a small idea pops into your brain, your train of thought for a millisecond is thrown off and inner dialogue happens “Left or right, I usually go left because its faster but today right seems like a better idea. Why do I even think that? Whatever…” and the choice is made. If you listened to that little voice, your intuition and went right you avoided a major delay which you didn’t know about because it wasn’t broadcast or talked about, you just knew.

That’s the smallest example of “knowing” and some other big ones that you may know probably come from friends and family that start with  stories of a passed loved one or relative when talking about them. “ I just knew I had to get home because he had passed, no one believed me but I just had this overwhelming feeling.” I know that you have heard this similar scenario or have lived it yourself, that’s the vibration of the universe tapping into your own energy and giving you a hint. Whoa Scott, slow down, you had me this whole time but now you are talking like one of those flowing robe crystal ball gazers. Ok, I got it and I understand. Vibrations and tapping into energy? Come on! Let me explain something very basic as I understand it, I am not a Doctor and have no medical training but I know that it is a fact that our bodies and brains run off of an electrical current. Its science and you can look it up, go ahead and google it. Welcome back, lets continue. So we have this electrical system that runs through our bodies and it helps carry information from our extremities to our brains for analysis. We touch things that are hot and our brains relay the information to drop it before we get burned. Easy stuff right? Yeah super easy and we know its there because we have all experienced that or something similar.

My pitch to you is to come along on this next part, our intuition and feelings are influenced in the same way but by energy or vibrations that we cannot see. We just feel it. Have you ever seen love or sadness, no you’ve seen the effects. Those are truly  powerful expressions of psychic abilities and the easiest for me to explain. I know you are still with me, so let’s go. A subtle version of this is when we meet someone for the first time or perhaps when we are around a person we spend time with often and know what mood they are in.  With a new person your intuition may be telling you to stay on guard with them or that they are keeping to themselves and not expressing fully who they are to you. Maybe you got the “creepy” feeling upon meeting them and later find you were right. When you are with someone who you spend time with and have a relationship with you may pick up on the mood they are in before you even see them, or you do see them and know immediately that they are happy or sad.  That’s it! That is the basic of being psychic, and if that’s where you are and want to develop further than you are in the right spot and I can’t wait to get started!

Here at scottythenjmedium.com I am going to be offering a vast amount of free information and great tools to help you develop your skills from basic to advanced! We can bring this as far as you want to go. I will offer a weekly blog with my life and how I use my own abilities day to day and how it has made my life better than it ever was when I was ignoring it. Also there will be a podcast featuring myself and guests, talking about all things psychic and paranormal, with book reviews and product reviews on everything I use as a psychic medium. There will be a forum starting where we can all get together and practice with no judgment and share experiences plus a great Facebook page that is linked so that we can all get together day to day and see what everyone is up to. All in all I want this to be a great learning tool and safe place for all of us, myself included because I still have lots of learning to do and look forward to connecting to you all!
