It’s a serious question, and one that I feel needs to be addressed. I watched a Mediumship demonstration on a ‘live’ feed on social media a short time ago - during which I happened to read a comment that was made, which in turn made me want to share my thoughts here with you today.
Essentially, ‘Ghosts’ are nothing but an imprint of electromagnetic energy, a recording of emotions or events held within a particular area. Ghosts cannot interact with us on a day to day level, and they are certainly nothing to be afraid of. Spirits are a different matter... Spirit is conscious, sentient beings; their personality remains the same as we remember them in life – when they communicate, they often share heightened knowledge and understanding - but the Spirit person’s humour and other traits remain very recognisable.
The easing of restrictions has been a long awaited and the temptation to indulge is sometimes difficult to avoid. With the freedom to see friends and family, indoor hospitality open and the return of larger outdoor gatherings, how do we stay healthy as socialising opens up?
I believe the only way that we can really be in a good place for any of these, is by talking. Talking to our family, friends and loved ones.
Back in the Summer of 2019, I wasn’t really looking for a new healing modality to work with as I’m happy with my current portfolio, nor was I needing another earning opportunity. However, when I saw my friends Olga and Gary, founders of The Forest Bathing Institute (TFBI), were offering their second intake of Guide training, I just couldn’t resist.
This morning, as the last lyrics of ‘Hark the Herald, Angels Sing’ faded away on my car radio, I was briefly transported back to 1998. I could hear my Reiki teacher recommending that I call in the Parking Angel should I need to a manifest a space in an overflowing car park. Frankly, at the time, I thought she‘d lost the plot; as surely angels were ‘just something for Christmas’.
There’s no denying that Covid-19 has been devastating on so many levels, but have we learned anything valuable from the experience? Perhaps constructive lessons about community, about care, about environment and wildlife, and about the power of human connection to overcome enforced seclusion and isolation, even when meeting online. While needing to socially distance, in some ways people have come together as never before.
