Hi all,


A few years ago, I decided to start learning more about my sensitivity to spirits. We all sense them in our own way. I started reading about other peoples' encounters with "ghosts" or whatever you want to call all the myriads of beings that most of us cannot see. That's what drew me to Ghost Village. Through the experiences on this site, I realized that I'm not alone and not all encounters involve scary entities.


I started listening to paranormal and psychic shows on podcasts, and bought all sorts of books on the topics in bookstores and on Amazon. All of this gave me the courage to sign up for a beginning mediumship course. I met face-to-face others who had similar interests and experiences and made some great friends. I was able to learn the difference between types of communications, meditation, and to start to develop the skill of communicating with spirits better.


Four years of courses have gone by. I'm not a born medium, and I accept that fact. I have mediumship tendencies, but I'm better on the psychic intuitive level, and find my outlet in art and writing.


There are lots of courses and retreats available for learning more in a safe, friendly environment, and of course there are tons of free podcasts if you have no money. I enjoyed Gavin Cromwell's autobiography. He's a born medium and could see 'dead' people from childhood. Following through his personal journey really interested me. I also recommend "Spirit Messenger" from Gordon Smith as a very readable beginner's look at communicating with spirits and being a medium.


As in most things, knowledge is power. The more you read, the more you can understand, and the less you fear.




Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passersby, and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it, but the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the Earth endures, the Earth is eternal" - Earl Hamner

I have not read all the replies so please forgive me if I am repeating anybody.

I have several "feelings" but I have found that either very high stress situations or intense concentration on something other than supernatural can bring results.

Firstly, and I really do not recommend this in any shape or form I found myself in a very intense situation several months ago. I was collecting a payment for a garden I had completed and was heading towards town to but the money in the bank when a man who was clearly a drug addict tried to rob me at knife point. Now this really focused my mind, fortunately I am a black belt in karate and have several years training in self defence. I was able to knock the knife out of his hand but that was not the point I was very stressed and suddenly in my head I "heard" someone shout "RUN PAUL RUN" I was on my heels I can tell you and as I looked back there was another guy who I had not seen who also had a knife. Most frightening moment of my life but somebody was there. My other point and this I can recommend is intense concentration on a project. One of my hobbies is model building I am at the moment building a model of the titanic. It is a big model and I put all my concentration into it. sometimes when my concentration is really high I "feel" someone looking over my shoulder. It is exactly like when a person is close to you. It is friendly enough and it lingers, sometimes for a long time sometimes just a short while. Anyway my point is perhaps if you concentrate on something other than trying to communicate you might have more success. I really do not recommend the other way.
