Morrighan,

Ever since weíve been doing the picture experiments, Iíve been using a little thing Iíve come up with in preparation of each target.  I incorporated your admonition of not interfering with their field.  Iíve said these words and meaning and intention in some form or another each time I do this kind of experimentation.  Itís memorized by the heart not by the word.  It goes something like this:

<<  I would like to make contact with this person for the purpose of my personal psychic and spiritual development.  This is not a retrieval, it is an experiment to help me practice and hone my perception.  I ask that my guides and helpers protect me and guide me in this endeavor and that they direct my intention and request to this personís higher self.  I donít want to interfere in any way with this personís field.  I want to perceive and receive verifiable information in any way that I can for the purpose of this experiment.  I would like to know, what are you most recognized for in the public eye?  How did you live your life?  How did you die?  Is there anything else you want me to know? >>

Even when I try doing Retrieval work I never focus on names, dates, locations because itís too much of a logic-mind focus for me.  Iím much better at the feeling side of things.  When I can feel something, itís real for me. 

About how I ďfeelĒ things.  Iím definitely not always right.  But when I DO feel something, then I know Iím right.  An example is that I have a black velvet drawstring bag that I just recently filled with 80 plastic game pawns.  (I used to use marbles but these pawns have much more vibrate colors).  There are 8 different colors, 10 of each color.  So I do regular practice of reaching my hand in and drawing one, then taking a guess at the color.  Of course by ďguessĒ I mean that Iím trying to sense in any way that I can what the color is.  I log each draw.  Iím looking for how I got the right answer when I do get it.  Iím not trying to be right, Iím just trying to notice what is happening when I AM right. 

A big clue that Iíve noticed is that I get more hits when I am able to FEEL the color.  What I mean is, if I just randomly choose a pawn and then try to sense the color, I am less often correct than when I tell myself, ďI want to choose a blue pawnĒ.  When I set an intention for a specific color, and then reach into the bag, feel around, and let my fingers just find a piece by intuition, then Iím more likely to get the correct color!  I believe itís because I connect with a sense of ďfeelingĒ, like I open up my ability to ďfeelĒ.   

Another thing Iíve noticed about ďfeelingĒ is that there are times when I choose one randomly, then sit and hold it tight in my hand with my eyes closed and I say to myself, ďI want to know what this color isĒ.  I say it with conviction, meaning that I really do want to know it.  Like I said, Iím not right 100% of the time of course, but when I AM right, I actually do feel the feeling of the color.  I canít really describe what that means, but for instance when I feel yellow, it feels yellow to me.  When I feel blue, it feels blue to me.  Itís an actual feeling that is specific to each instance.  So in this way, Iím learning a lot about how my perception works. 

For anyone reading this who thinks this is hogwash, who thinks that being psychic means being perfect or else youíre fooling yourself, my whole point is to say that what Iím doing with my own psychic development is not to be right, itís to know how my nonphysical senses work and to know it when Iím really using these abilities.  In this way my doubt will weaken and my trust and confidence will strengthen, and I want it to become so natural that it becomes second nature.  It used to be second nature to me when I was a very young child.  But having grown up in a very dysfunctional family it really dampened my psychic abilities so Iíve had to relearn it as an adult.  My mom was always telling me as a child to stop talking like that, stop telling stories and making things up.  She never believed me or listened to me, so since I had no support and I was constantly told I was weird or lying, I just learned to keep everything to myself and not really focus on that side of myself.

And Iím not trying to sound like ďpoor meĒ.  I know that no oneís family is perfect, but I really did have a lot of crap in my life and when you have to use all your energy to "survive" you lose a lot of yourself.  My dad was an alcoholic.  My mom was depressed, suicidal, emotionally abusive, what you call a ďtoxic parentĒ.  I was molested several times (not by family) when I was very young, raped at age 19, and the man I married ended up being physically, emotionally, and verbally abusive.  All of these unfortunate, bad experiences have really hammered into me to trust what I feel and that my feelings are the only thing I can trust in life.  Because Iíve become so guarded and protective of myself, I rely on my feelings, both emotional feelings and sense awareness, before I can trust, because I canít just trust at face value.  When youíve been lied to and manipulated and hurt, you become very guarded.  This has caused me to require feeling to back me up before I can trust what I think.


Back to using this ďfeeling sense of awarenessĒ.  It is something I know I can trust because feelings are so strong for me when I do feel them.  Itís less hard to ďfeelĒ something when it just pops into my head.  It could be right or it could just be something I made up.  If I donít feel it too, then I donít know why it just popped into my head.

For instance, on your last target, his real name was Bob.  But the name ďGaryĒ popped into my head.  I have no way of verifying ďGaryĒ to this guy on the Internet so therefore itís useless for my purposes.  What I also thought I was picking up on was that he was a mountain man, loved to live the reclusive mountain life, and that he was also into boating and in fact had invented, designed, and developed some type of boating gear/mechanism thingy but he wasnít really known for it because he was such a private person and this wasnít something he was marketing.  It was more of a hobby for him.

So, I have no way of verifying this.  But letís pretend itís all completely true.  If I have no way of verifying itís true then it doesnít really help me.  I still plow forward though, still playing along and act as if I am really connected, really receiving real information.  Because this is what Iíve learned from Bruce and I trust this process.  He says to just play along in your imagination and what you think youíre receiving.  It might be right, it might be wrong, but just go along with it.  Because in this way you are tuning into your nonphysical senses, allowing them to open up.  Itís a process.  Eventually you will get something right by using these senses, and this whole process (even the wrong stuff) is working toward strengthening those senses. 

A big part of what happens in psychic (nonphysical sense) perception is that the conscious mind and physical senses get distracted enough that the subconscious mind can communicate and deliver information to the conscious mind.  The other end of that bargain is that the conscious mind is in a state of allowing itself to receive it (rather than blocking).  Itís a two-way street.  This is Bruceís concept of Perceiver Ė Interpreter.

And as Bruce always says, getting some kind of verifiable information is a necessary part of the learning and development process.  We need that to tell us ďWell done!  You did it!Ē because it boosts our confidence because we have proof that what weíre feeling and how weíre sensing is a real thing that can be trusted.  Eventually we get to the point of not needing verification anymore.

As good as I am, Iím not good enough yet, so I just keep practicing until I have consistency and can really, truly tell while Iím working at it that I actually am really, truly receiving real information.

Imagine putting your intent into the non-verbal realm? Actually, when I place my intent it's far less granular. It amounts to seeing only what's really there; nothing more and nothing less. I do remain mindful of a quiet mind and intervene quickly when mind wants to "help".
