So the next chapter of my Spiritual Journey began. Irene the medium/clairvoyant had put together a mixed and varied group of people, different ages and jobs men and women.
Our 'teacher' was to demonstrate through her skills
as a medium how we could help souls who seemed to be living in limbo. She explained that sometimes people 'die' but cannot accept that this has really happened. They cling to their families and familiar surroundings desperately trying to communicate with them,
but getting no response. Time doesn't seem to play out to them. They probably had a very sudden passing, with no real warning so it doesn't seem real to them.
As I was just a young woman of 20 you would think that this concept would not make any sense
to me. Strangely I didn't question it at all and was in fact eager to take part.
The room we sat in was just about as dark as it could be, a single candle was lit and our chairs were arranged in a circle. We were told not to cross our legs or arms and
to have our palms facing the ceiling. According to Irene this was so the 'energy' could flow freely through us and around us. We closed our eyes and offered up a prayer asking for protection from any mischevious spirits who may interfere with our work. I was
not scared at all just incredibly curious to see what was about to happen. Irene asked us to empty our minds of the endless chatter that goes on in all of our minds and observe and listen to any 'other voice' that we may experience. I was sort of used
to this as I had inspiritational voices on many occasions, but I knew this would be different.
