Today’s topic will revolve around spiritual unfoldment and how this blog can be used as a guide to developing mediumship and connecting with Spirit. But first, for my readers from the past–I am no longer using the pen name of Veronica, as you may have already noticed. My about page is now updated as are my posts–I am now posting under my given name, Erica.
Today I would like to share with you some first glances into how I became a medium and how I connect to Spirit (the Other Side). I use many methods of divination–music, Tarot, palm reading, meditation with angels and mediumship. Music programs on computers and phones with a shuffle feature offer a randomized method of divination by allowing Spirit to send a message through song lyrics. Anything that can be randomized can be used for divination if you assign a meaning to the randomized pieces. Even dice could be used for divination if you assign particular meaning to the numbers and number combinations. Tarot readers for ages have used standard playing cards to divine message and tell the future, because they assign meaning to the suits and cards themselves. It is important to take care with these methods because they are addictive, particularly since you do often get success immediately–your guides have been waiting to hear from you and will respond. Use messages that come through as guidance and allow Spirit to protect you from knowing your full future, otherwise they will start to re-direct you. Divination is powerful, take care to protect yourself and keep your intentions in check at all times. Archangel Michael will offer protection, and I use many methods of spiritual protection and grounding as well that I have learned through the years.
I embarked on the path to mediumship rather accidentally–I began by being interested in learning about “spiritual alchemy.” Spiritual alchemy as I understand it is essentially transformation of the soul to bring you into a more peaceful, powerful way of being. My journey to spiritual alchemy began with meditation–just learning to be still and listening for the responses to my questions and prayers.
I believe that intuitive work flows easily when we quiet our minds and listen to Spirit because our souls are already part of God. The Wallace Stevens poem “Planet on the Table” contains several lines that explain percectly for me how our souls fit into the grand design:
His self and the sun were one
And his poems, although makings of his self,
Were no less makings of the sun.
It was not important that they survive.
What mattered was that they should bear
Some lineament or character,
Some affluence, if only half-perceived,
In the poverty of their words,
Of the planet of which they were part.
The character referenced in the lines above strives to create art that is not only a representation of himself, but also of the world around him–art that is, in fact, a microcosm, a cog in the wheel, a lineament of the larger world. This is how I see my soul, and your soul–we are waves coming together to form a magnificent confluence of Spirit. When we work to speak to Spirit, or to divine our futures or receive guidance, I believe that this act is like a mirroring, an echo, a remembering, if you will. This is information you already know, if only you learn the pathways to access it.
In and of God’s love, with you–Erica
