what does a spirit look like?

If you're lucky you may see a spirit in a form you can recognise, such as a person wearing clothes from a particular era which enables you to date when the person was in existence upon earth. Quite often though, spirit don't present that way. If they want to communicate with a medium and to pass a message on to someone they know, then they are likely to do so in order that the client will recognise who they are.
If a spirit is just passing through or visiting a location however, you would be more likely to see them in orb form. There are many pictures of orbs on the internet, many of which are not the real thing but also many that are. I usually see them with my eyes and then photograph them.
A common way to see a spirit is to see their chakra system as a heat haze effect. When they try to manifest and want to be seen, which is a difficult thing to achieve for a person who has passed over - it takes an immense amount of energy, the chakras can be visible rather than the physical projection of a body they are trying to create because the chakras store the power needed to manifest. The solar plexus being the power centre or battery pack of the energy system for all of us and therefore the easiest to see as it is larger.
A manifestation is usually a team effort and requires power and knowledge. For a spirit who is earthbound and has not crossed over to their spiritual home, harnessing available energy and holding it is easier and they are able, with practise, to manifest and sometimes very solidly.
It is possible for you to see an earthbound spirit and not realise it because they will look as solid as you or I. You may have walked by someone, sat by someone or even spoken to someone who is not in their physical body. Check back through your photos, you may have captured one.
An earthbound spirit can exist for many hundreds of years, trapped by their own emotion and never show themselves to anyone or they can learn to mimic the appearance of the spirit who visit them to try to get them to cross over. They can copy and learn to manipulate energy over time but a good medium will be able to see the difference immediately between the two energy systems because the earthbound spirit will be more dense in composition and will have little light, there will be no joy in their emotional state and there will be an underlying fear that can be sensed.
Earthbound spirit who become noisy are often ready to be noticed and to be rescued and therefore are trying to get your attention, but not always. A medium would be able to speak with the spirit to find out its intentions. Some spirit become noisy to get the household occupants to leave or to cause the energy of fear within them so that it can feed and grow stronger on the negative energy being produced.
I am always perturbed when people tell me that they have a spirit living in their house and they are happy to share their space with it and they live harmoniously together. This is not right.
Someone who has died needs to go home, to be with their soul group and to progress through the levels of development and understanding that exists in the higher realms. When just one soul from a group is missing then the whole group is held back, they cannot progress as a whole if they are not whole, that is their agreement.
It is not right to share your life with an earthbound spirit either. It can have consequences to you such as the spirit influencing your decisions, your health, finances and them trying to exist through you and then becoming attached to your energy, your personality can change as you become more in tune with the emotions of the spirit. This is not right either, you are an individual with your own path to follow and opportunities to take. Such a cohabitation holds you back too. You need privacy, you have intimate moments and you don't want a spirit watching you all the time, which it will do if it lives in your house or environment. They don't belong in this world anymore and need to go home - a good medium will take a spirit home even if it resists, they do not have choice when it is time to go - they pollute the atmosphere with their thoughts and fears, they clutter the airways of thought transmission and ultimately have their own agenda and become more selfish the longer they are in the astral body state. The majority do not do this on purpose or malevolently but because of the process of becoming an emotional representation of yourself rather than a physical one, it can't be helped. That's why they need to cross over and receive healing and guidance from the light angels. Your energy is being misused by a cohabiting spirit and the situation should not continue. Any medium that tells you that the spirit is happy living with you and does not need to go home is mistaken. There are ways to convince them to leave or at worst take them over without their consent. It comes down to a matter of knowing what's best for the stuck spirit and because the intention to help them is so high in comparison to the fleeting anger they may feel it is regarded by the light beings as being in the spirit's best interests and for the highest good, so the medium (aka me) is excused the interference.
Spirit who are living in the light and wish to let you know that they are alright tend to do so through the dreamstate. They choose this method because it is gentle and you are on the astral plain during this time anyway and so you are easier to access. Their intention is not to frighten you, manifesting before whilst you watch tv would probably be a shock! So they use a gentler method.
For mediums who work clairvoyantly spirit show themselves more subliminally or subjectively. They are given an impression within the mind of their appearance which they then translate. Objective manifestation is when it is seen with the physical eyes and perhaps by more than one person. A medium will know the difference between seeing subjectively and objectively, there is a definate difference in the type of energy and emotion felt during the encounter.
Spirit can also show themselves to you through thoughts. If you have a loud thought that doesn't seem to fit with the way you usually think or the way you structure a sentence and your words, question where that came from - it could be a loved one trying to get a message through, but if the message is hateful, spiteful or negative in any way send it away if you know it doesn't come from you. It may be from an earthbound spirit who is trying to latch on to you and if you tell it to go it will move on, but you must mean it.
Always work with love and never fear and if you are lucky enough to encounter spirit it will be a moment you wont forget.

tarot cards and crystal balls

Does a medium or psychic reader need tools such as tarot cards or crystal balls? No - not really. Sometimes when reading for a client it's useful to have a fallback. Some clients are more difficult to read than others. If a person is particularly negative or closed minded their energy is dense and the aura sits close to their physical body, this makes it harder for the medium or psychic to penetrate and to make a link to the client's chakra system, which is where information is stored and energy connections made.
In such cases when the medium/psychic is fighting for information instead of it flowing naturally a prop can be a useful distraction for the client to focus upon and therefore alleviating their fears of the process of being read. Also a prop gives the medium/psychic a positive point of focus and leads to the flow of energy and information rather than a mental block which causes the information to cease.
When reading for someone and the medium/psychic has some information that they decide not to pass on to the client because for example it seems harsh or the medium/psychic is uncomfortable with the subject given, the flow of information will pause. Until the statement is made to the client little or no further detail will be given and it becomes a block. The medium/psychic is not the person who can decide what information can be passed to the client, they are an intermediary only, a voice for those with no voice box or a conduit through which information is passed. Using the thought process interferes with the benign condition that the medium/psychic needs to adopt. They should not have an opinion or judge you in any way if a successful reading is to be achieved.
A spirit medium who has a good connection with the spirit world does not need to use props at all but there are times when it helps the client to relax and to calm their nerves during the sitting. Cards and crystal balls and similar tools allow the reader to tune in to psychic energy, a good medium will know the difference between psychic energy or if they are in connection with a spirit person.
The client can tell the difference in the following way; a message from spirit will include a description of the spirit person. It will not necessarily be a physical description of how they looked on earth and how you would recognise them, it can instead be a description of their character and their behaviour and opinions whilst you knew them. That depends on whether the medium is clairvoyant or clairsentient. Some mediums are both but not all mediums can do both, some never see a spirit person and always sense them and the reverse is also true.
Also a message from a spirit person will include evidential details of their existence and will contain memories that you can identify with. It will also contain advice for the future and regarding a current situation. You are able to ask a question of the medium and spirit usually answer in a way you can understand.
When psychic information is being drawn by the psychic the above descriptions are missing, instead you will receive information about a current situation, health issues, and more random details that are not always connected. A psychic reading doesn't hang together the same as a mediumship reading because of the way information is gathered by the psychic from the clients aura.
More usually during a reading there is a mixture of the two techniques which leads to a more rounded and useful reading.
Ultimately it is the mediums job to give reassurance and solid advice to the client, any medium who claims to solve your problems, heal your life or illnesses is breaking UK law. A medium that delivers a string of bad news is not working properly either. Spirit who live in the light do not often give a passing, especially if it will cause distress. It is true that they may give it but it is usually to someone of deeper understanding or if softening the blow is the best thing to do. A medium may pick it up psychically but a reading is supposed to be a positive event. If you have a reading with someone and you come out of it drained, despondent and worried for the future then don't see that medium again, find someone who is registered with the SNU or a registered psychical society where they receive training and guidance and development throughout.
However, don't blame the medium/psychic if they get everything wrong about you and fail to read you. Sometimes this happens to the best mediums. It may be that you are not supposed to have the information. Some of you are here on earth to be a grounding agent, be pragmatic and practical during your life time. You will be connected to earthly and material issues and it's not necessary for you to have esoteric input for a good reason that you may or may not be aware of. Accept it for what it is - not for you. Personally, on the rare occasions that this has happened to me during a sitting, I don't charge a fee. Some mediums do but I am not happy about taking something for nothing. That's not to say that I take responsibility for not being able to retrieve any information for the client, I merely accept that it's not meant to be. If you are going to visit a medium or psychic make sure you go with an open mind, just see what comes and what happens, that's all the medium needs in order to connect with spirit and it makes their job much easier, do not expect or wish for certain things to happen during the reading or for certain people to come through, you may be disappointed, instead trust that what you need and is for your highest good will come.

Yes, they exist. It's surprising where you can see them if you know what to look for. Their favourite place is inside a host - a person - but anywhere will do whilst they are waiting for the next host to come along.
They do not have to hide from daylight, do not have ultimate power, do not respond to religious chantings - until the name of Christ is uttered and even then you must believe to have any effect. They do not make themselves obvious by levitating their host or throwing things around, they are far too crafty for that.
Their purpose is to cause chaos, disruption, damage, fear and grief. All negativity is like nectar to them, so the more they create, the more well fed they are. They operate in the ether of the earth, they are attached to the earth and survive on man's fear. The earth is polluted with man's fear and thought forms making the astral plain a nightmare to navigate.
Demons look for the weak. Drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, addictions, violence and fear are all signs of weakness. Not in the sense that you and I understand weakness but the weakness of the aura - the protective shield around each and every one of us. The aura is weakened by such activity and becomes holed, such holes are easy for the negativity or demonic entity to slip into. Once a demon is inside an aura they become attached to the host and the problems really start.
But, don't become scared to have a drink, smoke a cigarette, have sex. It doesn't work like that, it happens over time, the thoughts of the victim causing the damage more than the activity they partake in. Don't become fearful of the fear. Sounds easy doesn't it?
Having a normal social life and balancing it with good habits of cleanliness, exercise and healthy thoughts will keep the aura whole and repair it when it does wear thin. Laughing a lot and loving yourself and others is the best protection you can have.
If you know yourself well enough you can recognise when you have an attachment or an unwanted entity whispering in your ear and we have experienced it at some time or other in our lives. Your thoughts can take a downward turn, leading you to think more negatively. You become jealous of other's success, you find people more sexually attractive but you lust after them rather than want to get to know them. You may throw your money around more, drive too fast, swear too much, have sex too vigorously, drink too much, eat less, sleep less, try to manipulate others, steal, develop bad habits, nail biting, spitting etc., change your appearance, bitch more, try to belittle others, boast, want to be the centre of attention, be rude, be lewd, be afraid, turn up late for work, miss work, let people down, make sick jokes, be aggressive and lie.
All the above can happen at varying degrees from just having a couple of off days and shaking off the demon to being in full possession and acting drastically out of character.
Some of you will be able to see the demon. It's not as scary as it sounds. A possessed person will display behaviour that you will find unsettling as above and sometimes you may catch a look that crosses their face that you can't identify but which sets you on edge. I usually see black blobs, like ink, moving across and within the eyes, it's unmistakeable to me.
Above all use your instinct, out instincts are rarely wrong and serve as our protection, we should listen to it more than we do. Trust yourself.
If you think that you have a problem with an attachment, stop your vices for at least 3 weeks, live cleanly, be boring, that way the attachment has no hold over you and you are no fun for them. Say a prayer of protection, if you don't believe in the power of the Christ, ask whoever you do believe in to help you instead. See a healer if you want but only one that can deal in such infections because one that doesn't can cause deeper damage. Go to church and ask to be blessed. Finally demons are not all powerful - but you are - take control and tell it to go away.
Some people will never experience anything like the above symptoms and will say that demons and spirits do not exist - they are wrong. I have witnessed too much to think otherwise as have many exorcists, priests, mediums, therapists. In the past I conducted a workshop for a practising psychiatrist and a practising psychologist who both worked intensly with mentally ill and psychotic patients and prisoners. They had seen things that they could not understand nor reconcile with their medical knowledge. We had a meeting of minds and with my input of the spiritual realm managed to explain and solve many of their puzzling cases. Medicine is moving forward and becoming more open towards the mind/body link.

nobody's perfect

We can all get low, we look at other people and their lives and they often seem much better, more organised than our own. We never have enough money, always seem to be catching the others up, never quite making it to our peak. Our problems grow legs as they say.
In my experience, whenever I have met the perfect people with the perfect lives, perfect children, perfect bank balance, they have been far from it.
We all have lessons to learn, we all have experiences that are unpleasant, horrible, hard to deal with and challenging. Having money does not exempt anyone from spiritual law.
Other people have their issues, family problems, relationships that fail, illness, worry and so on. Their finances may help to alleviate stress in some areas but not all. The wealthy mother with the sick son would give it all away in a heart beat to have her son healthy. The rich man in the wheelchair would pay anything for new legs. Health is more important than wealth they say, that's a reasonable statement if you have the wealth. What we need to aim for is balance. Money should bring freedom and yet many people I know who have money have allowed it to create a prison for themselves. They surround themselves with a large house, buy extra cars, find false friends and live to the extent of their means. Money should allow choices - live modestly and more choices will be revealed.
Money often brings nothing but misery for some, they don't like the changes in a partner or the attitude of friends to their wealth, their whole lives change and for what, some paper and discs of metal? for that is how spirit see money.
Perfection has nothing to do with wealth - it is to do with the heart. When the heart is open and in balance all good things flow freely to and from the person. It is true that the universe will provide what you need but not always in a way that you expect or understand.
Perfection is what you perceive it to be and everyone has a different idea of what that is and of course there are different kinds of perfection and your ideals will change with age and maturity. Spiritual perfection is balance of the mind and body, then all good things will follow, but it is a difficult state to achieve and one that requires input from others, be they friends, family, therapists or healers. We need others to highlight our failings and congratulate our strong points, then we, in turn, help them.
I look at young girls striving for physical perfection and I worry for them, will anything ever be good enough for them? Girls as young as 15 are wanting lip implants, botox and treatments that will change their bodies and facial features. They can't see that they are perfect already. Does lack of love cause this reaction? I don't think it does, it stems from insecurity but not from their parents. All teens want to fit in, they don't want to look different, it used to be fashion they followed and they would all dress the same way, the current fashion is for the face to look a certain way - so that's what they strive for. I cringe when I think of some of the outfits I wore in the 80's but I have been able to throw them in the bin, these girls and boys can't run away from their faces and the permanent changes they are making.
The media needs to recognise that every individual is perfect in their own way, unique, as they should be, and should push that instead of cloned, plasticised models. You are perfect in the eyes of the universe and those who love you.

questions welcome

To those of you enjoying reading my blog I say thank you. Comments and questions are welcome.

negativity - the virus

Negativity breeds - fast. You only need one moaner to start complaining about the world, the weather, the traffic, the cost of fuel, the cost of food etc., and soon everyone's at it. The world is ever changing and we don't like change, we like to know where we're at. We have to accept the changes we can do nothing about. Some people are better placed than us to make a stand, to protest or complain, so let them do it, it may not be your job. Some of us are here to help others along, to encourage and teach, to guide or to lead. We are not all cut out for standing up to be counted.
Violence also breeds fast, it runs in families quite often or areas. Take the football match where one person strikes the first blow or throws something onto the pitch - it's not long before many follow. It takes a stronger soul to break the pattern.
Only when faced with true adversity or illness do we often appreciate the wonder of the world we live in. The impending loss of someone loved can make you look at life differently, even the rain becomes a source of beauty, every snowflake a miracle. The fact that we have food easily obtainable amazing and clean running water from our taps within easy reach a godsend. It brings us a more spiritually based form of perspective. Parents with a sick child do not really care about fuel prices - they care about their child more and their energies go into that - they have none left for worldy matters.
We might feel negative, grumpy and low but we can still spread positivity and light which in turn brings about a change of energy and improvement in circumstances eventually.
Try to recognise when you are being a pessimist or negative and target it for change. Smile instead of frown. Start your day off on a positive note and the rest of the day will take care of itself. We all know negative people, for some it has become habit to be miserable, don't let them take you down the same path. Be the stronger soul and change the pattern.

what the medium feels when spirit touch them

For a medium to communicate with spirit people there has to be an overlap of energies. When the energies merge and overlap there is a sharing of information, not just of the mind and thought, but of physical senses too.
For example, if a spirit person wishes to let the medium know that they passed over with a heart attack, they will send the signal to the medium's nervous system and adrenal glands (with help from the spirit guides) the medium's body then manufactures the sense of the heart attack. The medium will feel the heart beat change, thump more heavily in their chest, become quickened or slowed. They will also feel the pins and needles that are often present during an attack and they will feel the pain in the chest and the dizziness associated with it. Although those symptoms sound distressing the medium will not feel them to a degree that is incapacitating and will sense a milder form of the attack. However, when working with guides and spirit communicators there is alot of learning to do on both sides, so it's important for the medium to take control and know their own limits. If for example, the sensation of a heart attack was becoming strong and overwhelming the medium must tell the guides to stop transmitting the information. They have no desire to harm the medium but neither do they know how sensitive the medium is to their frequencies, communication is an ongoing experiment as everyone has different levels of toleration.
The medium must practise regularly for communication with spirit in order to interpret the signals that their body receives. The medium must study the symptoms of illness too so that sensations are correctly interpreted along with a basic understanding of anatomy.
When a spirit wishes to communicate sadness the medium will feel the sadness, the energy will remain strong and it feels like a strong downward pull within the heart chakra, a sinking feeling and the energy will feel flat. When a spirit communicates happiness and a bubbly personality the solar plexus is used and it feels like a tickle, the medium can't help but smile, the energy is lifted and becomes vibrant and is usually clearly transmitted. When a spirit wishes to convey a stroke the medium will feel a pain in the head, loss of sensation in the affected limbs and a dizzy feeling. If the medium is unfortunate enough to feel the energy of a suicide victim the appropriate parts of the medium's body will be affected, a hanging will be felt as a tightening around the throat, sometimes the object used for suicide or murder is felt within or around the body too.
Sharp pain felt by the spirit will be felt as sharp pain by the medium but will be weaker so as not to cause distress to the nervous system. Someone who was blind will affect the medium by blurring or obscuring the vision, the medium is often left in no doubt about symptoms and conditions felt by the spirit during their life.
This type of mediumship is called physical. Many mediums who work clairvoyantly or clairsentiently don't acknowledge that this part of their mediumship belongs in the physical category but when the body and adrenal glands are being used in this way it is using more of the physical components within the body of the medium than the mental.
For usual communication with the spirit world the adrenal glands are used but not as fully as they are for physical evidence. The guides use the brain, the pituitary gland, the thalamus and the hypothalamus for mental mediumship. The medium will sense this information often as pictures in the mind, or an urge to speak. They will give information to the sitter that they could not possibly know. This type of communication is usually quite smooth but the main stumbling block is the medium's own thought process. It is habit and human nature to try to work things out that don't make sense. We have to understand puzzles and the human brain is programmed to solve problems. In order to be a good medium it is necessary for the medium to hand over the use of their brain to the guides, therefore being passive and quieting their own mind. The medium is the bearer of the message, the middle person and should never change or influence the content of the message although sadly this does happen. Either through lack of development and training, lack of understanding or sometimes the medium just keeps talking and passing information to a sitter in order not to appear incapable. These readings are usually meaningless to the sitter and a good medium will tell the sitter that they are not getting anything for them, you can't force mediumship. If you are seeking a medium always ask what training they have had and if they belong to a recognised governing body.
It is true that a medium will sense and feel all that a spirit wishes to convey via the guides and also true that sometimes the symptoms stay with the medium for a while afterwards as the energy takes some time to dissipate from the nervous system. A trance medium suffers greatly for their service. After just a twenty minute trance session a medium will need five days to a week to recover, every muscle hurts, there is a soreness in the body similar to that felt when you get the flu, the fatigue is great and the brain fogged. The wear and tear on the body is huge, but many trance mediums feel it is worth it for the results of spirit evidence. I have witnessed transfiguration and it is an amazing thing to see demonstrated but it is rare because it takes a certain kind of person to be able to give themselves over to spirit completely. If you get the chance to see it - take the opportunity to see the rare phenomenon.
It's very difficult for a medium to hand over control to spirit, the human spirit is programmed to stay in the heart chakra until the point of death, so to leave before that time is unnatural. The medium has to force their body and mind into a relaxed state and push their consciousness from their body to a place of rest while the body is used by spirit beings. The medium's spirit has a strong desire to re-enter its bodily vehicle so many hours of practise are needed to maintain the trance state for any length of time.
When the trance state begins the medium is often in a sitting position, they may feel tipped in any direction, they may spin and feel pulled from their body. A cobweb sensation can be felt over the face and numbness of limbs and extreme cold may or may not occur. The ears buzz and ring and there is deafness and the eyes often burn. Nausea is felt and at the last second a burst of fear. It is hard to relax in such conditions but there are trance mediums whose dedication brings clear evidence time and time again.

meditation - sitting in the silence

How important is meditation for contacting the spirit world?
It's vital. If we are going to become aware of senses outside of ourselves we have to sit in silence and get to know the rhythm of our own bodies before we can begin to understand external energies. You don't have to be training to be a medium to want to receive answers to your deepest questions or to sense the higher world. Some people meditate for peace, to combat stress and to find an inner stillness. Others meditate for decision making, to contact spirit guides and for personal spiritual development. It's your choice, but it's a good idea to set the intention before you start, that way the mind is clearer.
People have a misconception about meditation in that they believe that the mind should have no thoughts during the silence. Of course this is practically impossible. The mind is complicated, thoughts come and go all the time, it is unrealistic to expect the thought process to halt just because you expect it to. The trick to quieting the mind is to ignore its ramblings. With practise it becomes easier to allow thoughts to come to you, but not to acknowledge them. To let them flow over you and away without following the train of thought they tempt you with. You can imagine them flowing gently away down a stream if it helps you to visualise.
Meditation is a healthy practise and can help in times of stress to give perspective and balance. Meditiaion for spirit contact is different however. To sit in the silence for spirit contact you must meditate regularly and at the same hour each time for the best results. You need the discipline and regular sitting means that the energy builds up within you gently and steadily.
A little tip if you are meditating with spirit and think that you have made a connection is to get a confirmation from the guide or spirit. You can ask for a confirmation or affirmation to be made in your aura, if positive you will feel the aura shudder from top to bottom and may feel emotion too. Also when you ask a question you often receive the answer before you have finished asking and before your thinking brain has had time to work out any logical answer. You learn with practise to recognise the signs that are personal to you. You can, if you like, write as you meditate. Just let the words flow without thinking too much about the content until you read it back afterwards.
You can meditate with a candle, or card or any object you like to focus on. You can play soft music or use a singing bowl or similar to set the tone. It's up to you. Just remember that when you bring yourself back into your wakeful state to ground yourself, drink some water and eat something. Meditation can bring altered states of consciousness so it's important that you are sensible and don't do it after drinking alcohol - as for drugs - the two things don't go together and can be dangerous. As long as you work safely you should enjoy your time of peace and self indulgence.

how to cleanse an energy field

We all have an energy field - an aura. Some people are lucky enough to be able to see the energy in the form of colour and movement and some can sense it.
Most of us have sensed the aura without even realising. You know the feeling - you walk into a room and you can cut the atmosphere with a knife. Or we don't like being around a certain person or group of people, somehow they make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. These are times when your energy field is communicating to you and really we should all take more notice of the signs we receive. You should always trust your gut instinct.
If we have spent some time in an environment that we find unpleasant or unfriendly with people that are the same then we carry some of that energy within our aura. Think of the aura as an antenna that receives information, in order to process that information it must absorb some of the energy.
The aura is naturally able to cleanse itself to some degree and often when we leave a destructive or negative place or person the aura will shiver the contamination from it. We recognise it as a shiver down our spine and shoulders.
There is always a chance though that the absorbed part of the contamination will remain or if the energy has made you feel angry, tired or depressed it may be that you have allowed it to reach as far as the chakra system and affect your emotions. If that is the case a cleansing exercise is needed. Ideally you should cleanse your energy as regularly as you wash physically in order to stay clean and clear. That way you know that if you are feeling emotions they are your own and don't belong to someone else. We are sensitive beings, some more sensitive that others, but we all have the same physiology both physically and energetically.
The following exercise can be performed quickly or you can take your time. It can be used individually or for groups, buildings, cars or wherever energy needs to be purified. There are many ways to cleanse an atmosphere or person but this I have found to be the most effective. No tools are needed, it is free and easy to remember. It was taught to me by a spirit guide and there are clear reasons for each of the colours used.
Imagine before you what or whoever needs to be cleansed, if it is you then put the light into yourself at the appropriate points.
At the crown of the head imagine pure white light entering the body/house/car etc. Allow the light to fill the body completely, next allow green light to enter the soles of the feet/ground floor of the house etc. Green light belongs to the earth and everything with earth energy - that is to say everything physical - contains this energy therefore it must be renewed and replaced.
When a person performs a cleansing exercise and only brings in divine light through the crown they are ignoring their physical self and will find that they live in their head too much, they are too dreamy and lose focus on their lives. They think too much and do not have the balance of the spiritual/physical life as it should be. Bringing in the physical energy of the earth allows healing to take place, renewal of the cellular structure and grounding.
Then add golden light through the crown, this is the angelic ray and will bring guidance and peace into your aura enabling you to cope with situations and to see things in a more philosophical way. Blend these coloured lights together. Then cease the flow of light from the crown and feet until it is just a thin strand, do not cut off altogether.
Next in the heart imagine the pink light of love. Allow the light to grow and fill your aura with it. This is the protection of love. It will help to absorb negativity that comes to you and dissolves negativity within you. It will help to attract love to you.
Then put a thin bubble shell around your aura to lock all your good work in. You will still send and receive information via your aura, it will not be cut off from the outside influences, it will just be able to handle them better.
Finally centre your Hara line, there should be a solid white line that runs from the top of your head down to the root chakra. Then imagine small roots growing from the soles of your feet and into the earth to ground you so that you can function in the world.
Try the exercise, if you use it as a spiritual technique then that's good, if  you use it as a mental technique to bring peace into your busy schedule then that's even better because you are taking time out for yourself and acknowledging your body and spirituality which in turn will make you feel better and more balanced. You can't lose.
