Key themes from the Communications books illustrated by examples from 40+ years of mediumship.
Part Two: Inanimate Objects Are Anything But…
Many years ago, whilst still honing and developing and my mediumistic abilities, I lived alone in what was, spiritually speaking, a most curious house – but that’s a whole other story; one which I hope to tell you in due course. Back to today’s theme: One day during that period and whilst out and about I came across an unusual, lidded, red-glass vase in an antique shop that I really liked the look of, thinking it would look great at the top of the stairs on the small table that stood by the window.
I bought it and installed it, and it did indeed look rather classy once in place, but every time I walked past it feelings of unease and disturbance suddenly swept across me for some reason – feelings that grew more intense and unsettling as the weeks passed by. I finally mentioned this to my spiritual teacher, Joan, and we connected over the phone to see if we could get to the bottom of this strange phenomenon.
I knew that the vase was somehow causing these negative feelings in me, and so, psychically linked and with me holding the vase as we discussed the matter, we ‘read’ its ‘history’ and discovered that it had once belonged to a very angry, very bitter man who had treated his daughter dreadfully, controlling and restricting her life in many ways. Having discovered this I thanked Joan, put down the phone and filled the kitchen sink with cold water. I then immersed the vase in it, washed it thoroughly to dissipate any ‘bad vibes’, dried it, held it in my hands and infused it with Light via my fingers to ‘rededicate’ its vibrations and raise them. Finally I placed it back in its chosen spot. The uneasy feelings disappeared and the vase gave me no further trouble from that point onwards.
On another occasion an interested-but-sceptical friend of mine was extremely wary of my mediumship and was looking for proof from me that what I was telling him about me was more than just deluded imaginings. I asked him to bring along any object when he next visited me and to reveal nothing regarding its history. He brought a watch with him, which I held, shifting my spiritual consciousness into my hand and connecting with the watch to sense what information the timepiece might contain and share. I then relayed to my friend the impressions I’d received, which included information about the owner having been at sea and descriptions of various ‘vistas’ I’d picked up from the object. He was astounded… The watch had belonged to his grandfather and everything I’d told him rang true and was specific and accurate with regard to his departed relative.
…He needn’t have been astounded – the watch had, as a matter of course, taken on…’recorded’… some of its owner’s dominant vibrations and I’d gained access to these by ‘tuning in’ to its ‘history’.
As a final example of today’s theme, a couple of years prior to Joan, who always described herself as ‘my second mother’, passing on she presented me with a scarf for Christmas. She explained that she had put love into it and that I should be able to feel that love whenever I wore it. I have it to this day, and the vibrations of warmth and love it gives out are tangible, every bit as strong as they were when I first received it, and still bring me comfort whenever I wear or touch it.
…As Joseph explains in detail in his Communications books, we are ‘radiating’ spiritual beings. We infuse the objects closest to us – the things we repeatedly interact with – with something of our dominant vibrations. Knowing this, and in order to create an ideal, protective and nurturing personal living environment around ourselves, it’s a wise move to hold the objects within (and, indeed, touch the walls of) our homes frequently, communicating via our touch (and/or our voice – it’s perfectly OK to talk to things!) our wish to infuse them with love and peace and harmony.
Equally important for our protection, wellbeing and peace of mind is to always remember to engage our spiritual senses before buying something secondhand (or indeed, something ‘new’) – anything from a vase to clothing to a car (and especially a house!)- to make sure, via the impressions we receive from these things, that the objects are spiritually compatible with us, are calm and peaceful, and are not harbouring any negative vibrations or nasty psychic ‘surprises’.
Joseph greatly expands on this fascinating subject in a whole chapter of his book The Spaces Between, (Chapter Six: Your Dance with Reality). Here’s a very brief excerpt:
‘I wish to tell you that you influence everything and every object that you come into contact with during every waking moment and every sleeping moment.
‘With every object that you encounter, as soon as you attach relevance and consciousness to it, you begin a dance of energy with it – something that I could describe as the ‘energy exchange’. And, were you to look with psychic eyes, you would see people sensing and reacting with a myriad of objects during every day, and with each object there is an exchange of energy.’
Finally, we term the ability to ‘read’ objects psychically, as I did with the vase and the watch, ‘psychometry’, and how to access and use this gift, should you choose to, is explained in Module 5 Part 2 of my free Step-by-Step Course in Higher Consciousness Living:
Until next time, I hope this blog will cause you to consider the things you have around you, the houses you live in, the cars you drive, the clothes you wear, the objects you interact with, in a new light…I conclude as I began, by repeating the heading from this piece: Inanimate Objects are Anything But…
