out of body experiences

Hello everyone, hoping that you enjoyed your memorial day weekend. Once again I would like to put a thank you out there to all the soldiers that have lost their lives over the years fighting for the country and freedoms that we are a part of here in the United States of America.

Over the weekend I had some questions about astral travel and out  of body experiences from a family member. They had asked what I thought about them , how I felt about them, and for more information pertaining to them in general. I decided at that point that this week I would write the blog about that very subject of getting out of the human body. Anyone that can share experiences or knowledge feel free to share in the boxes below the blog.

An out of body experience is an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside one’s body and, in some cases, perceiving one’s physical body from a place outside one’s body. It is a really neat thing for some people and a really scary feeling for those that are not practiced in things like meditation or even astral travel or being out of the body during sleep or meditation. It really is one of those exercises that gets easier with practice and more able to hold control as you get used to it.

There are many causes or ways to be placed in an out of body experience. Some of the more common or typical ways are just simply falling asleep, whether taking a nap, or going to sleep for the night. You will have those times where you wake up and feel like you never got a wink of shut eye but you were out for a decent amount of time and shouldn’t really feel that way. Another way that some fall into the state is a near death experience. Some people claim to talk to gods, angels, or see white tunnels of light, or even relatives on the other side. We don’t always think of it but these are all out of body experiences. These can happen during long surgeries, comas, or other things where we are placed under anesthesia, or even when we are in a position of almost drowning. People that run marathons or exert amazing amounts of endurance also experience out of body because the body is unsure whether it is on air or land from moving at such amazing speeds and being in such a state of exhaustion.

This can at times be a total state of unknowing. I read a really cool story of Thomas Edison and his testing of out of body experiences. He would fall asleep and place a coin on his head. He would sit a metal bucket in his lap and when his head tipped the coin would fall off and land in the bucket. This would be loud and snap him out of it. There have been many studies over the years concerning out of body. It is all in how your brain percieves things. There are oils and stones for those of you that are into the metaphysical side of becoming better at out of body experiences and astral projection.

Astral projection is a way of doing out of body and ending up on another plane, realm, planet. This is a great way to get in touch with your guides, loved ones on the other sides, or even check in on a friend who you have not seen or heard from in quite some time.

Some of the stones I had mentioned earlier are Amethyst, sleeping with Amethyst facilitates out of body experiences and helps with intuitive dreaming, Calcite is a stone linked to the higher consciousness that facilitates the opening of higher awareness and psychic abilities, channeling, and out-of-body experiences.  It accelerates spiritual development and allows the soul to remember experiences when it returns to the body. Howlite  links into the spiritual dimensions, opening atunement and preparing the mind to receive wisdom and insights.  It assists journeys out of the body and accessing past lives. Merlinite is a magical stone that holds the imprint of the combined knowledge of shamans, alchemists, magician- priests, and other workers of magic.  Its dual coloring blends the spiritual and earthly vibrations together, giving access to the spiritual and shamanic realms.  This stone supports shamanic practices or magical ritual.

Some oils for astral projection are myrrh, frankincense, and sandalwood. You can blend them or use them separately. You can put them in a candle. Boil them on the stove or an oil burner. Get the essence around you before going into meditation or sleep. Also you can use dream pillows which are many times made out of mugwort most of the time. This will help you to remember your dreams or where you are traveling as you are out of body.

I hope that you have learned about out of body, also known as astral projection or soul journeying. Like I said, feel free to leave experieces, comments, or your own suggestions for tapping into OOBE better. Have a great week!-Ian

Happiness through teamwork

Are  the things you do each day making you happy? If you go to work each day does the job you do put a smile on your face? I was listening to the radio last week and I heard a line from a man being interviewed and it really stuck with me to where every morning when I wake up since then I ask myself. The line was “If you wouldn’t do what you do for a job for free, should you really be doing it?” This is not always an option for everyone, but if it is an option in your life then you should think about it.

It really goes back to things like wishing, dreaming, and manifesting. This life we live is a really short one. I was talking to Melissa last night while watching our son play baseball about the importance of things such as this. I had a great weekend with my kids and lately I have been thinking a lot about quotes that matter to me and lines that I can live by. Another line I saw was “spending time with children is way more important then spending money on children”. What a great way to get our young ones started on the right path, by remembering that love and companionship has no monetary value and the fact that being around people that make you feel good and smile makes you forget all about the stressful things life has to offer us. None of us are broken, the pieces of us being happy are just sometimes scattered and we need to find them and pick them up and put the puzzle back together.

Deep down we all have issues and anger and things that hold us back from our goals and what we hope to feel and be. We have to grab a hammer and shatter the things that do not serve us.  It is not a simple path and it sure is not an easy one but by being a group and a family we can all get there. Do you have fears? Do you have a family or friends in your life that roll thier eyes at you or say things like “what the hell?” when you tell them the beliefs that you have?

Well as another way of getting people together and helping us all to be on the same page and help us be one, I am putting together a new circle that will help you tap into intuition and happiness through working together, talking, helping, and  coming together to overcome our fears. If you are an empath then we will help with that. As a team and friends we will find ways to bring smiles to our faces and bring support to us all that we may not have known was posssible. This is just another way to help us to make this short life better and happier for us all. I hope you will join me next tuesday for the support circle. It will be held on the 2nd and 4th tuesday of every month and admission is just five dollars. It will start at 7 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m. It is always easier to do things or learn as a group or a team and with people who have your back. Come on out!!!

Marching to the learning tree

So here we are on another snowy Ohio day and I have had thoughts running through my head all day for this weeks blog. The idea I have decided on is since it is the first day of March is “marching toward the learning tree”. I believe that the tree of life symbol is very important but that there are many trees of life. The learning tree is one that is very important. The thought of a tree and learning is symbolic. The many branches are different ways of learning and the leaves different books that you can read. The bark is the thought of things that you layer on.  This is an idea that I use in life and I am sure that you could all make it work for you as well.

We had a class with Carol on last Friday night and she taught things a little different than any class that I had ever taken. The other students really liked the teaching style and it was very awakening to them. They were getting things through mediumship that they had never gotten before.  It was very neat to see people who have struggled with other teachers have such success with a different one. The class was called fun and games with mediumship and she will be offering it again in the future. Keep and eye on the calendar for the date for that. Just thinking of it as fun and games may be a good way for some to have more enjoyment and looking at it for a way of learning.

This could have been the teacher or the teaching style. It is really neat to see how each of us learn differently from different styles and different ways of teaching. We each have to take our time and explore different things to find our way in the metaphysical world. Some of us are clairvoyant which means that we can see things, clairsentience is the ability to feel the present, past or future physical and emotional states of others. This is the sense of feeling. Psychics use it in aura sensing and psychometry.  Clairaudience is the sense of hearing, whether you get messages that you hear or anything like that.  Claircognizance is the idea that you just know. You strictly use intuition with no other sense of knowing why. You just think and there it is you have the message you are looking for. Clairgustance is smelling. You get smells when you ask for message from spirit. One new way to get these things to open up when doing mediumship we learned was to put your recieving hand close to the floor. This is supposed to help ground you better. From the experience that myself and the other classmates had this worked really good.

The many different ways of learning are so various and you should never give up if you feel like your ability is shut down. You can use different stones to open up your third eye. There are many meditations that you can come and do that will help you with this. We have a circle for development at the store every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month to help you to develop your psychic abilities. The biggest thing when you are working with this is to remember the simple line of “I CAN DO IT!”. Having faith in yourself is not always the easiest thing in the world to do but with a little work and being persistent you will get there. This may not be an easy march to the finish line but with some work you will get there. We hope to see you at circle tomorrow night. Have a great week and thanks for reading the blog this week. -Ian

“We have such sights to show you”

I know, I know, I titled the blog after a quote from the 1987 movie “Hellraiser”, however this blog could not be farther from that. I am going to tell you all about some amazing sights that I saw over the weekend while taking an amazing class with Lovey Adamczyk. Have you ever been in a place and you get that feeling that you just know you are supposed to be there but you don’t know why? Well that is where I found myself this weekend. I was seated in the healing room at the store for Lovey’s Basic I.E.T. class for Saturday and Sunday.  I never realized how amazing some of the sights that I would see would be.

On day one we went through the rainbow of angels. Well, I guess that the rainbow would not be the proper way to put it, especially in my head because I know that some people see angels totally by color but not me, I saw way more than I ever had imagined I would see as Saturday went by. All of this really reinstated the fact of just how visual my brain could really be and how amazing the things you can see in a simple meditation can really be.

So we had gotten through a lot of the instruction part of the class and it was time for our first meditation. The first meditation would be with angel Ariel. When Lovey does a session on you she has you draw a card, Ariel has been my card about two thirds of the time so I was familiar with her and ready to go. As we closed our eyes there it was, the calmest, brightest white light I have ever seen in my life. A feeling of peace surrounded me and I felt almost as secure as I ever had. What a great start to the day of meeting my healing angels that I would use for the next 2 days of class.

The next angel that we would be working with was angel Raphael. This was exciting as I am a person that really struggles with a feeling of being alone. Raphael is supposed to be good at working us through situations such as this. Here we went and it was time to lock in to Raphael, out of nowhere I see this huge, beautiful bridge, golden gate style, there was definitely no give to this bridge. It had a green light on the front of it and I heard a message in my hear telling me “Cross it and don’t look back”. Cross I did and I will be definitely enjoying alone time more than I have in the past because of the feeling of security gained from this exercise.

The angel Faith was the next in line for us to work with on this day. Her message much like her name is to have faith and enjoy the freedom that it brings. As we go into meditation with Faith I see a box, it opens and out flies a dragonfly. All of the sudden I get the feeling of being in a forest with huge trees with green bolts of light flowing down on me. The messages “think outside the box” and “share what burdens you”. The messages are just flowing and the sights have been quite amazing to this point.  I am really loving this class and hoping that there is more to come as we get locked into these angels.

Next in line is Gabriel. I have heard many things about Gabriel in the past but never meditated to talk or work with this angel before. He is supposed to give direction and clear the sense of uncertainty and distrust, which are also some things that I struggle with. As I close my eyes, I immediately see a huge tree with its roots very firmly planted in the soil. Then I see a bright yellow sun with some really cool blue eyes. Gabriel then says close your eyes and see this and as I did this in my meditation all of the colors of the chakra wheel, one by one came to me. I am really feeling great after this.

We then met the angel Celestina, she is here to teach us and help us with creative expression and clearing the swallowing of self expression. This was good because I am really working on saying things with soft lips and watching saying things roughly or in a way that they may hurt other people.  As we go into meditation I see the most awesome mountains with huge birds soaring above them. There are bright purple shadows everywhere and in the clouds the word “SOAR” is there. What a cool message this was.

I am at this point telling myself that there is no way that this can keep up with the awesome sights I have been shown today but let’s see anyway as it’s now time to bring in the angel known as Cassiel. This angel teaches unconditional love and relieves us from heartache and feelings of betrayal. As the lights go out and my head draws Cassiel in I see what reminds me of a nun but could be an angel and she kisses me on the forehead. At this point red takes over the sights that I am seeing and A lightning bolt hits the tree from earlier, knocking a branch off of it and I get two more messages from the amazing tree. “It’s alright to be imperfect” and “Don’t look back are both carved into the tree that at this point seems to be my tree of life.

Wow, is really all I can think and then I look to the wall which has beautiful pictures of each angel we will work with and see that there are still 3 to go. Daniel is next up and Lovey really likes him because he is almost like a bodyguard when doing integrated energy therapy. He teaches forgiveness and helps clear self judgement as well as that coming from other people. It is now time to go back into meditation and I am on a huge ship  with the most beautiful, blue sails. This is the calmest water I have ever been around and felt. As I look up on the blue sails on the ship the words “Call on me and all will be smooth sailing”. are written in huge, bold writing. The ship is just gliding across the amazing, blue body of water. I was really given the feeling of being a pirate of positivity after working with Daniel.

Sarah was on deck and coming in next. Her healing gift was empowerment and is here to help clear us from feelings of powerlessness caused by ourselves or others. During this meditation I look up and am in the middle of a really long hallway. Much like time when in meditation, this hall goes very quickly as you go step by step. I have been in many meditations lastly not more than 3o minutes and feel like I have been in for hours. I look at the wall at the end of the hall and there is a banner hanging on the wall that stated: “The hardest of goals are easily achieved by stepping one foot at a time”. This reminded me to not rush to conclusions or let little things ruin my mood. Take one step at a time whether walking into positivity or away from negativity.

Last but definitely not least is the big bopper, the one that everybody knows and loves. We would be working with Michael. He is the protector and helps us clear fear. He is here to keep us on track to finding our mission in this short period of time called life. I got a little excited because good things usually come to me while working with Michael. Eyes closed, time to count down and get some Michael time. When I think of Michael, I always think of Michael Carpenter from the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher. Michael is a knight of the cross and a huge man, he carries a giant sword, he stands for light. He is like a human version of the angel Michael. The Michael meditation begins with a flashback from my childhood at about age 3 or 4. I see myself hopping up and down on my red rocking horse, I am sitting on my fathers lap watching He-Man and Smurfs cartoons on a Saturday morning. I am my little self playing with my dads guitar and listening to the smooth sounds of the band Devo telling me to “Whip It”. All of the sudden I see the Archangel Michael standing before me with arms wide open with flames around him. The flames change from chakra color to chakra color. Perfect vibrations are going around the flames and all is well in the world with my visions of childhood and the best times of my life. Sometimes all you need to do is put yourself in that happy place in order to feel that sense of protection that can not be found anywhere else. Amazing! That is the only way to describe this.

This day of learning got me going like no other day of learning in quite a long time. I highly recommend working with Lovey. I can not guarantee that the results that I have felt, the experiences that I have described will happen for you. My hope for you is that what I have just told you about is only the tip of the iceberg for you. I am a visual person and the sights I have seen were amazing. If you want to talk more about my weekend or have questions about this class leave a comment below. You can sign up and learn more about Lovey by checking out http://loveysangels.com.

Once again thank you so much for spending a few minutes of your time checking out the blog! -Ian

getting that vibe

When you get that feeling,  that tingle,  that ringing in your ears what do you do?  Do you ignore it,  do you shrug it off, do you take it as no big deal?  For the longest time I did those same things. As I have awoken to live another day on this beautiful planet lately I’ve really started thinking about the importance of every little ring in my ear,  every word I say or hear.  The importance of a microsecond of your life is absolutely unbelievable.  Are your gifts sending you messages?  Are the angels or paladien people giving you a sense of something?  The time we spend every day ignoring this while thinking of negative garbage that doesn’t help us in any way is unbelievable. I have found myself more awakened and more locked in than i have ever been this week.  It is a great feeling and I hope it never goes away.  I plan on using my gifts to help people and animals and plants and any other living part of this earth every day.  Just some food for thought but when you hear that knocking at the door do you answer it or do you ignore it? Love one another,  help one another,  use those gifts!  Thanks for reading,  Ian:)

Seeing Auras

aura field

This blog i am gonna write about seeing auras and what they can tell you about peoples moods or even how spiritually involved that they are. Seeing auras may be an ability that you have and you may have never known you had. I never knew I had the ability until I took a class with Elizabeth Howell to teach you psychic development and realized how this came right to me and I could really do it. It was such an exciting night for me as I realized a skill I had in the metaphysical. It is now a skill that I really enjoy and I do with my mother-in-law when we are out at different places.

People with aura fields around them that are a dark and murky color are many times not protecting themselves spiritually or could be holding onto alot of stress which will block your true aura from coming through. This can be taken care of by doing things such as meditation or just simply taking time to enjoy the good things or things that you enjoy in life. Auras can change as the day goes on, for example Hank Setala who reads in our store does tuning fork balancing sessions. After a session of tuning forks in our store we saw a complete transformation in someone that we took aura photos with. There are many systems of taking aura photos such as cameras or computer systems. I definitely prefer to just look at someone and see what aura they are and go from there. There are many colors that your aura can be and they all have different metaphysical meanings. I am going to go over some here in the next section of my blog.

Green supports balance. It is a great color for harmony, love, and communication. It is also a color that represents being one with earth and close with nature and the outdoors. It is also a color that can resemble a feeling of acceptance of calm for the place that you are in at that time in your life.

Yellow is a color known for fun, humor, and lightness. Much like the bright color of the sun, a person with a yellow aura can brighten your day. These are usually people who have a high sense of intellect, logic, and creativity. They are definitely a person that you would like to be around.

Orange is a color of creativity. This color also is known for productivity and pleasure. A person with alot of orange in their aura is usually someone that is not afraid to show emotion and put enthusiasm and optimism into everything that they do. They are highly motivated and many times they are natural born leaders because of the enthusiasm that they put into things.

Red is a color of energy. Someone with a really good color of red for their aura is usually very grounded and full of stamina. They are also many times a soul full of spirituality and love for humanity and others around them. They are many times the kind of person that makes a great friend or someone to talk to.

Pink is a color of healing and caring. This is many times a person that is very family oriented and dedicated to their families. They have a sense of inner peace and know why they are here. They will go to the end of the world to protect the family and things important to them.

Violet/Purple is known for imagination, a flow with the universe, and artistic abilities. They have a sense of creativity. They have a very good sense of where they are headed in things like meditation and are great at connecting with spirit guides.

Blue is a color of calmness. This is someone who is full of peace, love, and honesty. Much like someone who has a pink aura, one with a blue aura is also dedicated to the family and the love and bonding of the family. They are a person who being kind to others is deeply important to. They are very devoted to causes that they deem important.

I will be in the store Sunday doing aura sketches and interpretations from noon to five this weekend. If you would like to get a sketch and sit around and talk auras it is just 10 bucks. Hope to see you this weekend. -ian
