I am at the 4th Annual Afterlife Awareness Conference in Portland and had the pleasure of taking a four-hour psychic development workshop with spiritual medium Austyn Wells yesterday. Who, by the way, is delightful in every way.
Our very first exercise involved reading four different people. We each had one minute to sit face to face with another person and give them what we saw, felt, heard, knew–the way we got it didn’t matter.
“Give what you get,” Austyn told us, meaning “no performance anxiety.”
I have to admit I wasn’t sure how I’d do on this because my brain’s always super-active and that can get in the way of connecting with more spiritual things.But I gave it a go.
My four subjects told me I was “right on the money.” All of them.
My first “client” gave me the vibe of books, a room filled with books, maybe a library. She nodded her head because she had two offices that she said overflowed with books. Other things I got resonated, too. Surrounding another person I saw lots of kids. She had no grandkids. No kids. But, she told me, she DID live right next to a school and saw and heard the kids every day. Among other things. I got a Whole Earth catalog vibe off another woman, and she nodded and said (among other things) that she taught holistic voice therapy.
When it came to exercises that involved connecting with and feeling spiritual energy from guides, pets and our departed loved ones, I didn’t feel as secure. While others described energy zaps and tingles, I got nothing, energy-wise. Except that every single time I closed my eyes in an exercise to bring up someone tears began falling. Every single time. And can I tell you what it was like to connect with little Carol at age five and have her create a safe place for me? OMG, a powerful and emotional experience.
I’m not sure what all that’s about. But I am fascinated by what I learned in the workshop and will continue my studies.
It’s wonderful to be among “like-hearted” people, as Austyn calls them. Every single person exudes an open heart. There are many grieving loved ones who have passed fairly recently and many parents with children in spirit.
I wish I could share with you the beautiful heartspace I am experiencing here. It’s my goal to create that space when I am with my friends and family.
It’s Thursday afternoon and the conference officially opens tonight with Raymond Moody, MD, the guy who pretty much kicked off all this aferlife research with his book “Life after Life” all those years ago. I’ll continue to share with you these next few days as time permits, and for sure after I’m home.
Blessings to you all.
