This is an awareness exercise to help connect you with your spirit guide, angel, deva, elemental or other spirit friends resident in energy dimensions. This exercise will help those of you with no or little experience to access other realms to try and feel the presence of spirit beings and to start becoming more aware of them.
Exercise to develop awareness of being in spirit; guides and spirit friends
So, I want you to read through this page once so you have your orientation then you can work with the exercise at a quite time.
For the most part, accessing other dimensions and energy environments is not considered a normal everyday practise. There is both miss-information and myths surrounding this activity. People interested in such areas are considered superstitious or irrational at best and associated with the Devil at worst. You could say that none of these attitudes are positive or shall we say supportive of these abilities.
As a scientist by training and a very competent explorer of other energy environments I can only say that people will always find arguments that support their fears, restrictions and limited views of reality.
Be open to possibilities and your own strengths & ways
So, be open to possibilities and try to put down your preconceptions and expectations. I know that this is a very difficult thing for most people to do. Also try and accept yourself, accept who you are and accept that you are unique as we all are.
I access in particular ways, I don’t expect others to be able to access like me, in the same way that we each have a different driving style we also each have preferences and strengths in different senses, perceptions and awarenesses. I am very visual, I don’t hear anything; but that is just me. Use what you are best at.
Although this is web site has a range of articles covering interactions with many being types this exercise is about connecting with a spirit energy friend, someone you know and have a strong positive connection with somewhere.
As such this is a good exercise to start with and to practise particularly at home before you try connecting with nature spirits for example.
Learning to ‘tune into’ your own inner responses, senses & perceptions
Your ability to access the beyond is related to how well you are prepared to feel, sense, perceive what is going on inside of you. So, to start with I want to help you to familiarise yourself with your inner feelings, reactions and responses.
We do this as follows;
Take yourself back to the memory of meeting someone for the first time that you felt uneasy with. Maybe on the outside they were very friendly and open but some part of you knows that this is a front, an illusion.
Put yourself into this feeling, this sense, this perception, this awareness – whatever it is to you. Then recognise this as your inner response that is saying to you that ‘something is not right‘.
Now put yourself into memory feelings of a situation of when you first met someone with whom you resonated very positively. Let yourself move into these feelings and stay there for a while. NOW feel, sense, perceive where you are feeling this.
Also try and feel how you are sensing them, as this is a different feeling sense to the original. Feel this NOW. Remember what this feels like. This is one of your inner feeling responses telling you that something is right.
Understanding how you relate to inner subtle sensory information
OK imagine you are in a restaurant and you are about to choose what you will eat? So, you are reading down the menu. How do you know what you want? Do you know how YOU internally actually make the choice of what you want to eat? What do you do to make such a choice?
Well, as you read down the list you are actually checking out what each menu selection tastes like by using your inner senses. For most people, as a child, they did this process slowly and step by step. They would imagine what is tasted like to eat a fried egg on toast, how this would taste inside of themselves and whether you would like it or not. They then do this for each menu item to decide if they would like to eat that now or not; this is why kids can take ages to make a choice.
Now, as you practise with this process and get better you can get to do it fairly instantly. So, most adults can scan quite quickly down a menu list and ‘know’ what they want. So, you know that today fish and chips are great but a curry would be Yuk and yet yesterday the opposite was true. When you first did this you imagined or felt or sensed what eating fish and chips would make you feel like or beef steak and so on. OK I want you to do this now for the following list;
- Fried egg on toast
- Madras curry
- Fish and chips
- Beef steak
- Vegetable lasagne
- Cheese salad
- Sweet and sour pork
So, you get the idea?
Subtle Unconscious Awarenesses are happening ALL THE TIME
All the time you are picking up sensory or feeling or perceptual information in many different ways and;
- Taking it for granted . . . . . or
- Filtering these out
You have a huge range of sensory, feeling, perception and awareness information impacting on you all of the time. It is just a matter of you re-tuning your filters to not exclude the information you want. Or to put it another way to tune yourself to picking out the right information.
So, part of being able to do this is about you allowing yourself to become more sensitive to yourself. The calmer, more relaxed, more in tune with yourself you are then the more you will pick up the subtleties.
Sensing beings in Spirit and becoming aware of things about them
So, this is what you can do when you are trying to sense your friendly presence, when you have a feeling of something there use a menu to get you started. For example is this presence male or female? That’s an easy one to start? So, what do you do? Well, you put a male (you project a male figure into the same energy space that you can feel your presence) then you feel if this presence resonates / is similar to a male energy. You see or listen or sense if this feels right? Then you put a female and see if that resonates better? If, for example a female image feels better but is still not quite right, then try different female types. For example try an old female or young one. Put them in the space at different heights. Put a 5cm woman in that space. Is that right? Put a 30cm woman there, what does that feel like? Try 2 meters? What about 20 meters? Now you may think that 20 meters is over the top but it could be an alien giraffe (I am not kidding). It may also be hermaphrodite. So, if neither male or female feels right try some thing else.
Re- engaging with extra sensory perceptions esp
Now in one sense doing the above is re-introducing you to your senses and helping you to become more sensitive to what you are already picking up. This is sort of what I was doing when I started. Even if you do not consciously know what a ‘male’ feels like at a distance your energy system and inner senses do. So, this is about getting you attuned to your own energy system; which is a fancy way of saying getting you attuned to your senses, perceptions and awarenesses.
After a while you can do this automatically like you did as a child reading the restaurant menu. You will then just ‘know’ it is a male fairy for example instantly, because you have now recognized a male energy three times and it is in your sensory memory. Easy.
Now, I am being biased here with my visual senses as this is my strongest. Others of you will be more orientated to your hearing sense or touch or smell or even taste. Adapt the above, use the above to become more aware of how you take in information. Do you hear the food being cooked? Do you know what you would like by the smell? You are your own expert on you?
Conceptual, belief and personal background considerations
You have your own sets of ideas and concepts which are quite different to mine. You have a preference to a different set of senses to me. You use different conceptual symbols internally. What I am saying is that each person picks things up; senses things which are translated by their own internal structures into information that you can relate to or learn to relate to and that the form you get this information is very specific to you. So, three people may be tuning into the same fairy but each may be presented with the information of a fairy in completely different ways. This is normal, as we all have different internal conceptual, cultural and belief ridden inner landscapes.
For example, I think in English from an English culture point of view and would have a lot of trouble initially trying to understand a Japanese person and relating to their cultural background until I understood more to translate concepts and ideas from mine into hers. We would need time to build up a frame work to translate each others view points.
What I am saying here is that you are unique and you need to allow yourself the possibility to find your way to access and relate to what you get. Many people make trouble for themselves because they want to access in a certain way; because that is how they have heard it is done. There is no one way that this is done. There is my way and their is your way.
Blocks and filters to sensing
It wont surprise you to know that at this very subtle level your beliefs, ideas and so on can influence you quite strongly. You may also have in other lives done something to stop you from gaining access to this information as part of your experience and beliefs at that time. These types of conceptual blocks may make accessing difficult. But then practising will help you understand if you have these. For example as a child you may have been frightened by invisible monsters to such an extent that you blocked yourself from seeing them. Invisible monsters or other beings in spirit that you were seeing. Or it could be that you had an invisible friend. As an invisible friend is a person in spirit then if you had one then you already accessed and you just need to allow yourself to do the same.
The Main Exercise
In this exercise you are going to invite some Beings to come work with you to help increase your sensitivity and perceptions so that you may access other realms and energy levels more easily. You are then going to ask for a Being to be with you that you have known from another existence, where your relationship was positive and supportive. This presence will then be used for you to practise accessing and being aware of what is beyond.
To start this exercise you ask for help and support and guidance or training from within and beyond yourself. Use the following invocation to help with this. Say it internally with intent and focus. You can also say it aloud if you want.
I invite the TrueSpirit teams to work with me now.
I ask for everything that I need, all resources, energies and support to help me access and be aware of the energy space around me and all that it contains. I ask that everything and anything within ALL THAT I AM that is blocking my ability to access or that would reduce my sensitivity or awareness to be released from me. I ask for this NOW and so it is.
I ask for everything that I need to make me as open and as sensitive as possible to the Beings and energies around me. I ask for this NOW and so it is.
I invite a good and trusted friend in spirit to stand with me NOW. I ask for help to become aware of our relationship, how we met and what we mean to each other. I ask that the best means possible be used to convey this information to me. I ask for this now and so it is.
Now, FEEL. Do not use your head, just feel, sense, be aware. Remember where your feelings were within you when you felt negative and positive about meeting someone. Feel in the same places. How are they responding to your enquiries? Place your consciousness in different places in the room. You do this by INTENT. Use whatever is your most sensitive sense to do this. Are you visual or audial, or is your sense of smell the best. So, see, or hear or smell a presence.
So, for example is someone sitting on your right? Yes or No? Is there someone sitting on your left? Is your friend standing? Feel the room, put your consciousness in different places in the room and feel if someone is there. If you find this difficult then ask them to help by making their presence more solid. Now for most people this will be a very vague feeling that you will probably not even want to acknowledge because of its subtleness, but that feeling is it. To say that it is a feeling is not quite right; it is a sense of something. OK go with it. So, most of you should have a feeling of something somewhere. Chuck out all rationalisations and contrary thinking and crap beliefs about whether this is right or not . . . . IT almost certainly IS.
OK you have some feeling or sense about some place in the room that contains the presence of your friend. What do you do next? This is where you can check off different characteristics from an imaginary menu. Is it male or female? Well, you put a male in that space and see if it feels right. Then you put a female and see if that resonates better? If, for example a female image feels better but is still not quite right, then try different female types. For example try an old female or young one. Put them in the space at different heights. Put a 5cm woman in that space. Is that right? Put a 30cm woman there, what does that feel like? Try 2 meters? What about 20 meters? Now you may think that 20 meters is over the top but it could be an alien giraffe (I am not kidding). It may also be hermaphrodite. So, if neither male of female feels right try some thing else.
What are they wearing? Try different colours on your photo fit person what works? What feels right? Are they wearing shoes? Is this a human? Is it a friend from another planet? Then put your best idea for an alien there and see if that feels right? You do this step by step until you build up a complete picture of what it looks like. Now? Why is it there? Does it feel friendly? Is it laughing? In what circumstances did you live with this Being? Try different environments and see which feels right. Is it happy? Was your friendship social or was it associated with work or a group or as a neighbour. There is nothing that you cannot track down with this approach. Now as with the child with the menu, the more you practise the more you go straight to what it is with regard to all the menu suggestions that you have already covered. If you get an image but it feels wrong in some way then that is a sign that you need to explore more options, that there is something not right with the image you currently have.
The last time I did this with a group, everyone got it. We had everything from a huge giant that was three times the size of the house, to an alien butterfly creature with a pair of pistols, an eight legged 30cm high virus looking creature which used to be a pet / friend of mine on another level and a couple of people size amoeba type creatures and more.
All of which is of course very educational . . . . .
