"I learned that the world has a soul, and that whoever understands that soul can also understand the language of things." - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
One of the first books I read on my spiritual journey was The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, and it was a great choice for a beginner. It's the story of a young man on a long journey who is learning the language of the Universe. If you are ready to learn more about Spirit communication, this is a great story to inspire your desire to understand signs and symbols.
The most persistent question I get asked about my work as a medium is, "How can I communicate with my loved ones who have passed?"
The answer lies within your willingness to learn about and try something new. The language of Spirit is much different than the way we communicate in the physical world, using our mouths to form words that are heard by someone's ears. When I was in school, I studied Spanish. On the first day of class, I wasn't yet ready to hear and understand a dissertation in that foreign language. But by the end of the week I had figured out how to say, "Hello!", "Goodbye", and "Where is the bathroom?" Just the basics. Funnily enough, my ex-husband was Belgian, and despite being divorced for a decade, I can still swear fluently in Flemish. (Tells you a lot about the marriage, eh?) Having spent a lot of time in Europe, I learned the frustration of being in social settings as a non-native language speaker. I had to be really alert, watch body language and listen for intonation since I didn't always readily understand the words being spoken.
The language of Spirit is nonverbal. Mediums have to develop their own relationship with those who are in Spirit to receive the information. Simply put, it is mental telepathy; pictures, images and thoughts. All of us do this constantly, but most people haven't really studied it. This is why we think of a person who is calling us right before the phone rings, or have a persistent urge to reach out to someone without knowing the reason why. Our Souls are beacons, constantly sending out signals to each other. The big question is, "How do we register those signals?"
A few years ago, I was conducting a Skype session for a woman in England whose husband had passed. During the communication, I saw images in my mind of the Hampton Court Flower Show. You might wonder how a medium living in the Upper Midwest of the USA knows about a flower show in London. Well, I have been there! In this particular case, I was the right medium for this woman because of my knowledge and experience. Another great example of how this works happened during a phone session last week. I was connecting a couple who had been deeply in love when I saw the image of a woman I know named Stephanie. The woman I was speaking with confirmed her friend named Stephanie had to break the news to her that her fiancee had died. Again, through mental telepathy, this was her fiancee's way of confirming he was aware of events that had taken place after his passing. It was also a way for him to thank Stephanie for the great care she took in handling the sad task of sharing that news.
The language of Spirit is subtle one: signs in nature, the words of a stranger, mental images, feelings and sensations. The language of the Soul is universal; free from the barriers of language and the physical body. It is knowing of sorts. And like any other relationship, it takes patience and trust to develop.
If you want to learn how to communicate with a loved one in Spirit, you have to be willing to study, try something new and educate yourself. Read lots of books! Visit spirituality centers and see what kind of awareness classes they offer. Your results will be as good as the work you are willing to put into it.
Being a professional medium, I am adept at practicing mental telepathy, and while that's great when I am working, it can cause some interesting circumstances for me in my normal life. Recently, while I was getting a manicure by a Vietnamese nail technician who was chatting in his native language with a coworker about the weather, I unwittingly contributed to the conversation. Stunned, he looked up at me and said, "You understand Vietnamese?" I was as surprised as he was! I said, "Just a little." and vowed to keep my mouth and brain shut from then on. Ha!
Have fun with your experimentation. Your loved ones in the Spirit world know you are just learning and want the process to be joyful for you. Try not too be too serious; you may even want to make a bit of a game out of it. When it comes to communicating with Spirit, our Souls are beacons, constantly sending out messages to one another. With dedicated practice, we can all begin to receive those messages with crystal clarity.
