My "One Brain" Session

Last week, I went to see Trish Silay and I tried a session of the One Brain system. Since then, I have felt calm and centered . . . ah, a lovely, calm feeling.

What happened at our session? Trish asked me what issue I wanted to work on and I told her that I was hoping to enhance my psychic abilities and that I had another issue which might be related: when I worked on projects, I only allowed them to get to a certain point, then I began to panic about them getting too big and out of control. I wanted to get past that point so that my projects could flourish. I recognized the issue, but I didn't know how to make a change.

With the One Brain system, Trish uses muscle testing to get information from a client's body. She asks very fast "yes" and "no" questions and the body responds with answers which allow her to find the root cause of each issue. Once she finds the root cause, she can dissipate the energy around the issue and release the problem.

What did we do? Trish sat in a chair across from my chair and gently held my arms with her thumbs touching a spot just above my wrists. Then she began asking her quick questions. Trish determined that the circumstances which had led to my blockages had occurred at the ages of 10 and 3. The issue had to do with a noisy, chaotic home environment, punctuated by parental yelling. By the time I was 10, I had learned to cope with this environment by quietly "flying under the radar." I had learned that when I shared information, the response was unpredictable, so it wasn't worth sharing too much information. I needed to control my environment to minimize erratic reactions. My issue was control. The age of 10 is about the time when we are capable of strategic responses. We can figure out how to deal with certain situations. Trish worked to clear the emotional blockages which had been put in place when I was 10. However, after Trish cleared the emotions around this situation at the age of 10, she asked my body if the control issue had been totally cleared. The body answered, "No."

So, Trish started the muscle testing again and we went back to the age of three. The age of three seems to be when a child becomes aware of their environment, but doesn't yet have the capacity to think through a situation. The child reacts to situations and copes as best it can. Trish found that my three year old self had had psychic abilities, such as the ability to hear information, and had shut down this ability so that there would be one less voice in the chaos of home life. I was seeking peace and tranquility and beginning to exert control over my life.

Apparently, this need to control things in order to ensure harmony, was the root of my inability to let projects get too big. If they got too big, I felt overwhelmed and I panicked. I remember when I was wholesaling Wild Girl! pins that I received orders for more than 200 pins one week and I panicked! How was I going to get this done? My husband had to remind me that getting orders was a good thing. Receiving orders was the goal! I just had to pace myself. Okay, calm was restored. New attitude: receiving orders is a good thing. Whew.

Trish suggested that I could release this need for control and just let things flow. Again, she worked with my body to let go of this control issue. Releasing control would allow my psychic abilities to return and allow My Psychic Search Project to grow. What a lovely thought: just relax and let it go wherever it goes on its own.

So here I am, relaxed. Trish helped me to clear and release this issue. Now we wait. We see if my psychic abilities become stronger and if my project soars. All I need to do is pay attention to the psychic insights and acknowledge them as they arrive. So easy.

An extra, interesting tidbit: I asked Trish what my abilities had been when I was born and she told me that I had had the ability to hear messages, to feel messages (like a gut reaction) and to be psychic. I asked her if hearing and feeling were the same as psychic abilities and she told me that hearing and feeling are abilities which come from the body system. They are forms of intuition. Psychic experiences are connected through the brain. They are not quite the same thing. Interesting. There is so much to learn!

A New Adventure: Brain Integration

Earlier this week, I had a birthday. I asked for one particular gift: an adventure with a psychic. So, today, I'm going to have a session with Trish Silay. She works with the One Brain system. This system helps people to integrate both sides of their brain. In some cases, the One Brain system opens psychic abilities. According to Trish, this system is about empowerment. Once someone learns to tune into their Higher Self, their abilities surface.

Trish was one of the people who I interviewed for this Project. She explained how the One Brain system uses muscle testing to help people understand their personal belief systems and how those belief systems can block them from being fully who they are. Muscle testing provides bio-feedback from the body. Sometimes, the body remembers events and traumas better than the mind. Trish gently touches her client's arm to begin the bio-feedback process. By asking "yes" and "no" questions, bio-feedback allows Trish to gather information from the client so that she can help them clear their issues.

In order to do this work, Trish connects with her Higher Self, universal intelligence, and nature's intelligence. Spirit Guides surround her. When Trish is attuned to her Higher Self, she understands what needs to be done and how to help other people.

I'm excited about my new adventure! I'll blog next week and let you know how it went.

First Impressions

This month, I received one of my first psychic impressions about another person and compiled the first draft of my book. Let's talk about "Firsts."

Receiving a First Psychic Impression

At last week's Psychic Explorer's meeting, we tried psychometry. I traded a personal object with another woman and we tried to get impressions of each other. The group leader talked us through a meditation to help access information. In my mind, I saw a link to this woman's daughter and to her daughter's spouse. Then I saw "handyman" impressions: a wrench, a repair truck, etc. After those impressions, I asked in my thoughts, "Can you tell me something about this particular woman?" I thought she probably would be more interested in information about herself than about someone else. I saw that she liked plants. I saw a plant . . . like a vine . . . . like a Wandering Jew plant.

When it was time to share our impressions, I told her about her daughter. She had a daughter, but they had not spoken in years. She was not able to corroborate my impressions. However, when I told her about the plants, she lit up. She liked plants and the day before our meeting, she had just given away a Wandering Jew plant because it had gotten too large for her home. Did I really get something? Did I really receive a psychic impression? This was an exciting breakthrough for me!

Producing a First Printing Impression

This week, I printed and bound the first draft of My Psychic Search book. I am very pleased to have a draft to show to a few people. I want to get their first impressions. Parts of the book have been posted on this blog so all of you readers have seen bits and pieces, but this is the first time it is has been compiled in one place. If my "test readers" think it's okay, I'll move more seriously towards publication.

On the subject of "Firsts," here are a few stories from the psychics:

A Psychic's First Impression - Gigi Sample

As a child, I heard things. When I was around 10 years old, I heard my mother calling me in her unique accent. I asked her what she wanted and she told me that she had not been calling me. Turns out it was my Grandmother Virginia calling my name. She had lived in our house and had recently passed. At the time, I didn't quite figure it out.

A Psychic's First Experience - Cherie Fraine

When I was two years old. I astral projected into the landlord's collie. This scared the poor dog. I didn't know what I was doing, I was only two years old, so I ended up being bit on the face by the collie. I didn't have the vocabulary to explain what had happened so they put the dog down because it bit me. I immediately realized that this was not something that everybody else could do. It left me with a deep respect for animals' space.

A Psychic's First Out-of-Body Experience - Richard Schickel

I was five years old when I had an out-of-body experience. I was in a children's ward at the Cook County Contagious Disease Hospital. Because I was contagious, I was in a ward where the children had been taken away from their parents. I could see myself laying in my bed while I was floating up by the ceiling. A silver cord was attached to the base of my spine. A lot of children were dying and I could see myself just laying there. I remember a large white presence off to my right and then I was told that I could float around for a while, but that I had to go back to the body on the bed.

A Psychic's First Near-Death Experience - Delphina Nova

After my birth I had bronchitis. I was in the hospital and I nearly died. I was in the hospital for about two months. I must have known that this was going to be a "heavy" lifetime!

Now that I think about it, I have had six NDEs.

A Psychic's First Meeting with a Spirit - Marianne Patyk

Back in 1969, my grandfather came to me after he had passed away. That was my first experience with the other side. I was about 8 years old when he came and sat on the corner of my bed. I still remember it. I had a conversation with him. This was about three days after he had passed away. He came and sat on the corner of my bed and I felt him sit down. I opened my eyes and it was my grandfather. In fact, all of my relatives have come to visit me after they have passed. It's like having a normal conversation with them.

An Intuitive's First Life-Saving Impact - Rhonda Gibony'-Harford

When I was only a year or two old, my Dad worked in the mines. I kept asking for my Dad all day and my mom kept telling me he was at work. San Manuel was a small town with a large tower. Around 3:30 p.m., I left the house and started walking towards the tower. The people from the mine called my Mom and told her that one of her girls was walking towards the tower and she figured it had to be me. It was nearly quitting time, so they called my Dad up from the mine. He was a little ticked, then an explosion went off and several of the people in the mine shaft where he had been working, were killed or badly injured.

A Psychic's First Interaction with a Supernatural Entity on the Street - Erik Von Assman

One of the most amazing things I ever saw occurred after my fiancé and I broke up. I wasn't in a very good place and I decided to kill myself. I walked out of the house with a great idea of how to kill myself. I was walking down the street and a woman just appeared in front of me - poof! She was covered in dark clothes, had sunglasses and was trying to cover up as much of herself as she could. She glowed. She grabbed me by the shoulder and it sent crazy shocks through me. It was more love than I had ever felt. She had a very sing-songy way of talking where everything rhymed and she told me not to hurt myself and that things would get better. She was located right in front of me. I don't know where she had come from, but she felt Angelic. After a few minutes of hanging out with her, I ran away because it was too much for me to take in emotionally. What that woman had inside her was too much for me to feel. I was in a state of shock for a couple of days after I met her. The intensity of her love was nothing short of supernatural.

"Firsts" are always exciting. We keep learning new things and refining our understanding of the things we think we know. Such is life: living, learning and teaching. It's a beautiful blend.

Meet a Psychic

Today, I would like to share information with you about one of the psychics who was interviewed for this Project. Her name is Jackie Chin and she lives in Ohio. We managed to do this interview over the Internet with Jackie doing the bulk of the writing. She is a fascinating woman with a unique way of gleaning information. I hope you enjoy this summary. If you want to know more about Jackie, click on her blog at the end of this post.

Jackie Chin - Professional Psychic Advisor

Jackie Chin is a Professional Psychic Advisor who mainly works over the Internet. She works in on-line open reading rooms on AOL and in other chat rooms. She has provided psychic readings for more than 23 years.

Working as a psychic has enabled Jackie to counsel people through very difficult times in their lives. When she is able to give information to people who are hurting and seeking answers, it makes her feel terrific. While she knows that she is not the source of the answers (the answers come from a greater consciousness which she is able to tap into), it gives her peace to be of assistance. Jackie has found that clients often contact her after they have repeatedly tried, and failed, to get answers from other people.

When clients contact Jackie, she has them think about specific questions which are immediately affecting their lives. Usually those concerns have a lot of energy behind them. It is as if they have a high energy or a spark to them; like a lit match. Once the question is asked, Jackie goes backwards in time to examine the initial spark of energy. Everything has a beginning and an end. People know their past and their situation. They also know that Jackie doesn't know anything about them so once she gets information about what initially occurred, they relax and Jackie can move into their current energy and retrieve their answers.

Jackie doesn't hear voices. She "knows." This knowing is different from seeing images because when she gets a "knowing" message, she doesn't see an image attached to it. However, images sometimes do appear during readings. She may see people who the clients are talking about, places where they have been or places where they are going.

Jackie loves working with skeptics. These people have questions which they think Jackie can't answer. Once they discover that she can do the reading, their attitudes change and Jackie feels wonderful. Skeptics help her keep doing what she loves doing.

During her life, Jackie has seen many deaths, helped people cross over with Reiki, and counseled clients about these issues. She knows that there is life after death, but she believes that each person has their own idea about what death will be like and this influences their experience of the afterlife.

In fact, Jackie's family often has house guests which are not biologically alive. As long as they are not frightening anyone, they are welcome to stay. Sometimes the family allows them to join events and makes a space for them at the table. Her family has decided not to turn them away unless there is a reason to do so. At some point, the ghosts may decide to go into the Light and be with their own families. However, if they left Jackie's family, she feels that a part of her family dynamic would be forever changed.

Each time Jackie gives a reading and hears from someone on the other side, she is pleasantly surprised. She is mystified that we can actually talk to those who have crossed over. They are still very involved with our lives.

Jackie believes that people who are in touch with spiritual energies already understand that there are many Earth changes which are affecting our personal lives and the life of this planet. If people continue to worry and not take action, things will get much worse. She thinks that the people who are aware of this situation should form groups and teach others how to connect to the life source by prayer, meditation, and energy healing. As long as these people are doing positive spiritual work, it will magnify for the good of the planet. Each color, thought, and living thing has a healthy vibration. It is up to those who understand this concept to teach others how to build up their vibrations and heal themselves. Once they have learned how to do that, they can give back to the planet.
