Many years ago I had my astrological chart read by a professional astrologer. The chart showed quite clearly that I in my lifetime, in many respects, would be seen as controversial. I have often been criticized for thinking outside of the box. My opinions and perception of life have been considered as controversial. As you may know, my background is that of a spiritualist medium, but I have also had many other impressions from other philosophies and belief systems. However, my Spiritualist background is still sacred for me. It is the foundation of who I am and how I work.
I believe that negative energy exists, both within and around us. Denied aspects of ourselves that take a negative form can have a very destructive effect on our behaviour, the way we carry ourselves and communicate with others. Quite often psychologists and psychiatrist use the expression demon when referring to something within that is being denied by the individual. I also believe that this negative energy can be projected and take form outside of us. I have witnessed demonic energy (for the want of a better word) cause chaos in people’s lives and minds.
Many people are afraid when I mention that there is a demonic energy around. I have seen it affect people’s behaviour in so many different ways. The sad thing is that they are not even aware of when it is affecting them. When we send out negative thoughts to somebody else that in itself is a negative force, which eventually will come back to the person who sends it out. A demon is really just a symbol for many different forms of negativity that can begin with having bad thoughts or denying what is unresolved within us. It can extend to the human being committing acts of pure evil. When I sense an unpleasant energy around it can identify itself to me visually or by my feelings. Sometimes it is as if I am looking at a grotesque mask that is giving me a message: Watch out, there is a demon about.
I have come into contact with many sprits during my course as a medium, also spirits who are not very pleasant, whose only purpose was to be a disruptive influence. Why? When they leave this world and pass over into spirit some of them are not able to reach the light because they are trapped in their own darkness, or their own denial. In most cases these spirit entities are still stuck in patterns of behaviour that did not serve the life they had before they passed. Many of these spirits have required help from me, and other mediums that do similar work, in order to reach the light.
In my own work as a medium I dare speak about all aspects of what I see within people and what I see around them, because in the world we live there is light and there is darkness. So I will ask you all this question of all of you: What happens to you when you start gossiping about somebody else, slander or even try to bring somebody down? Are you then stuck in a trap of self-righteousness (ego)? Can you then be completely sure that you are working from the light and not your own darkness?
Yes, I have always thought outside the box to a degree and I am sure that I will continue to be criticized for it, but every time I think outside the box it expands so I can place new experiences and realizations in it. One thing life and spirit have taught me, is that there is no unique truth.
Those of you who wish to talk and criticize in order to defame somebody else just to promote your own truth, think about what you are doing to yourself? What is it within you that is motivating you to commit such acts? Is it the light and the love within that you speak of, or the demons within your unconscious that you have never dared to face?
