In the Oxford English Dictionary the term poltergeist is defined as “a ghost or other supernatural being supposedly responsible for unexplained physical disturbances such as loud noises and the movement of objects” (“Poltergeist”). Further, the activity and characteristics of a poltergeist are denoted by the termpoltergeistic (“Poltergeist”). Meanwhile, the actual manifestation of poltergeist activity is sometimes referred to by the term poltergeistism (“Poltergeist”). While there are several different words that referred to poltergeists and poltergeist activity, the etymological roots of the term poltergeist have not changed since it was first introduced into the English language.

The term poltergeist is rooted in the German language and is a combination of two words: poltern and geist (“Poltergeist”). Poltern literally means “to make a loud noise or uproar, to rumble, to thud,” while geist translates as ghost (“Poltergeist”). Thus, the poltergeist phenomenon is often colloquially referred to as the noisy ghost phenomenon (“Poltergeist”). Orthographically speaking, since the term poltergeis has been introduced into the English Language in the late 1860s, there is no evidence that the spelling of the word has changed.

The term poltergeist appears in various forms of literature since the 16th century and first appeared in German writings (“Poltergeist”). The term poltergeist appears in the Night Side of Nature II. Vi. 238 in 1848 (“Poltergeist”). Later, in 1871, the term is used by Edward B. Tylor in Primitive Culture II. 176, where the author compares some of the characteristic behaviors of vampires as being similar to that of the poltergeist: “Vampires appear in the character of the poltergeist or knocker” (“Poltergeist”). Still later, in the early 1900’s the poltergeist phenomenon is examined in the Edinburgh Review and there it suggests that the poltergeist is often a malevolent entity not typically satisfied with merely making a commotion (“Poltergeist”). As late as 1954, the poltergeist phenomenon had further been compared to the behaviors of a boggart; in Personnel of Fairyland, K.M. Briggs asserts that the boggart and the poltergeist have the same violent tendencies and that both phenomena are equally destructive (“Poltergeist”).

According to The Mystica, a poltergeist is a mischievous spirit: one that makes noise, moves things, and such spirits can go as far as attacking the individuals that reside at the location where poltergeistic activity is present (“Poltergeist 2”). There are a number of theories pertaining to how poltergeistic activity develops as well as to the actual origins of such activity. Some theories suggest that the poltergeist is a malevolent entity that chooses to attack people at random. Other theories suggest that the prepubescent stage that an adolescent goes through draws the attentions of such entities. Still other theories suggest that the poltergeist phenomena has something to do with a prepubescent teenager or adolescent that serves as an agent that is responsible for the activity that occurs; it is suggested that the agent, usually a female adolescent is somehow making the phenomenon occur via psychokinesis without actually being conscious of doing so.

The unexplained movement of objects is quite common in poltergeist cases. In some poltergeist cases, apportation occurs where rocks, stones, or other unexplained items appear out of nowhere (Guiley 21). Larger objects can be thrown about as the poltergeist case progresses, including furniture and appliances (“Poltergeist 2”). Some cases of poltergeistic activity also present unusual and foul smelling odors, and the duration of time that poltergeist cases last varies with each case (“Poltergeist 2”). A.D. Cornell and Alan Gauld conducted significant research into the poltergeist phenomenon in the 1970s (“Poltergeists”). The examination involved the observation of poltergeist cases from 1800 to the late 1970s to determine the commonalities amid poltergeist reports (“Poltergeists”). According to James McClenon in Wondrous Events: Foundations of Religious Belief, the reported cased examined by Gauld and Cornell were “narratives originat[ing] in such diverse locations as Turkey, Eastern and Western Europe, South America, the former Soviet Union, Scandinavia, Canada, the United States, Iceland, China, Indonesia, Jamaica, India, South Africa, Madagascar, and Malaysia” (58). The findings of the examination conducted by Gauld and Cornell proved quite revealing; Gauld and Cornell discovered more than sixty commonalities between reported poltergeist cases (“Poltergeists”). Below are some of the common features reported time and time again:

Small objects moving without explanation (“Poltergeists”).

Poltergeist activity increases in the evening hours -- more than half of all the cases examined revealed more poltergeistic activity when it was nighttime (“Poltergeists”).

Just under half of all the cases examined by Gauld and Cornell revealed that the sounds of rapping was present during the poltergeistic activity reported (“Poltergeists”).

Nearly 40 percent of all the cases examined reported the unexplained movement of large objects like furniture (“Poltergeists”).

Approximately one-quarter of all the poltergeist cases examined in the study lasted a period of more than twelve months (“Poltergeists”).

A small percentage, just over ten percent of poltergeist cases included the phenomenon of doors and windows closing and opening without explanation or aid (“Poltergeists”).

Finally, in terms of attribution, fewer than five percent of the cases analyzed were attributed to the deceased, seven percent of the activity was associated with witch workings, and just fewer than ten percent of the cases were associated with the work of demons or malevolent entities (“Poltergeists”). The latter information is based on the reported findings and is not necessarily the assigned attributes of Gauld and Cornell.

In the Encyclopedia of Witchcraft and Demonology, Rossell Hope Robbins explains that as poltergeist activity progresses, the entity or origin responsible for such events often becomes more aggressive and can even resort to starting spontaneous fires (389-90).

In Parapsychology: Research on Exceptional Experiences, Jane Henry attributes poltergeist activity to recurrent spontaneous psychokinesis or PK abilities (127). Henry also explains that “poltergeist cases have been reported on occasion for at least 500 years (Gauld and Cornell qtd. in Henry 127). Typical features include objects moving for no apparent reason, sometimes breaking, and unexplained noises such as knocking. Some cases have involved electrical disturbance. Many cases appear to be short-lived” (Henry 127). Henry examines other studies and further reveals that many poltergeist cases typically last 300 days or more in duration, that difficulties with water and plumbing frequently arise, and that some poltergeistic activity is really not poltergeist activity at all (127). There are some instances where natural phenomenon can seem like poltergeistic activity, and it is therefore critical for the paranormal investigator to rule out all mundane possibilities before seeking a paranormal explanation for questionable activity.

Some studies suggest that poltergeistic activity is more common in locations that are situated near large bodies of water (Henry 128). In addition, studies conducted in the mid 1950s suggest that poltergeistic activity is more common during the winter months (Henry 128). The ISIS Paranormal Investigation Team has noted significant correlation between purported haunting and paranormal activity with a close proximity to large bodies of water. Water may make it more easily possible for spirits to act and/or manifest. Meanwhile, thermodynamics may explain why there is seemingly more paranormal activity in the colder seasons of the year. In Science Confronts the Paranormal, Kendrick Frazier examines a letter produced by J.T. McMullan, an individual associated with the School of Physical Sciences at the New University of Ulster located in Ireland (22). According to the letter, McMullan suggests that thermodynamics explains the common temperature drops during poltergeistic activity. Seemingly, when it is colder, the conversion of energy from one form to another is more easily accomplished:

He noted that poltergeist reports are consistent in their mention of a lowering of the room temperature by as much as five degrees Celsius during a poltergeist display. He then calculated that enough energy would be given up by a one-degree lowering of room temperature in a room of normal size to raise a 25-kilogram table vertically through a distance of some 200 meters. Thus, he suggested, the energy required for the spectacular movings and jarrings of objects that typify a poltergeist incident can be accounted for by means of what is already known and accepted about the conversion of energy from one form to another. (McMullan qtd. in Frazier 22).

McClenon notes that the studies conducted by Gauld and Cornell reveal a number of commonalities in poltergeistic activity reports that “transcend culture;” the parapsychologists duly noted that some poltergeists seemingly have a bizarre attachment to selected individuals, that most poltergeist reports reveal incredibly destructive behavior, physical assaults are common in poltergeist activity, and that there is a seeming diabolical intelligence behind the phenomenon (58). Further, McClenon duly notes that getting rid of poltergeistic activity is extremely tricky and sometimes next to impossible. Certain studies reveal that four out of every twenty-nine exorcisms or clearings actually rid the location of poltergeistic activity, and another four out of every twenty-nine cases produces minimal effects in terms of reducing the onset of the activity in question (McClenon 59). The remaining cases continued on with the poltergeistic activity despite attempts to cease the events (McClenon 59). Thus, attempts to resolve issues with events associated with the poltergeist may come to naught.

Banshee Of The Bad Lands

"Hell, with the fires out," is what the Bad Lands of Dakota have been called. The fearless Western nomenclature fits the place. It is an ancient sea-bottom, with its clay strata worn by frost and flood into forms like pagodas, pyramids, and terraced cities. Labyrinthine canons wind among these fantastic peaks, which are brilliant in color, but bleak, savage, and oppressive. Game courses over the castellated hills, rattlesnakes bask at the edge of the crater above burning coal seams, and wild men have made despairing stand here against advancing civilization. It may have been the white victim of a red man's jealousy that haunts the region of the butte called "Watch Dog," or it may have been an Indian woman who was killed there, but there is a banshee in the desert whose cries have chilled the blood that would not have cooled at the sight of a bear or panther.
By moonlight, when the scenery is most suggestive and unearthly, and the noises of wolves and owls inspire uneasy feelings, the ghost is seen on a hill a mile south of the Watch Dog, her hair blowing, her arms tossing in strange gestures.

If war parties, emigrants, cowboys, hunters, any who for good or ill are going through this country, pass the haunted butte at night, the rocks are lighted with phosphor flashes and the banshee sweeps upon them. As if wishing to speak, or as if waiting a question that it has occurred to none to ask, she stands beside them in an attitude of appeal, but if asked what she wants she flings her arms aloft and with a shriek that echoes through the blasted gulches for a mile she disappears and an instant later is seen wringing her hands on her hill-top. Cattle will not graze near the haunted butte and the cowboys keep aloof from it, for the word has never been spoken that will solve the mystery of the region or quiet the unhappy banshee.

The creature has a companion, sometimes, in an unfleshed skeleton that trudges about the ash and clay and haunts the camps in a search for music. If he hears it he will sit outside the door and nod in time to it, while a violin left within his reach is eagerly seized and will be played on through half the night. The music is wondrous: now as soft as the stir of wind in the sage, anon as harsh as the cry of a wolf or startling as the stir of a rattler. As the east begins to brighten the music grows fainter, and when it is fairly light it has ceased altogether. But he who listens to it must on no account follow the player if the skeleton moves away, for not only will it lead him into rocky pitfalls, whence escape is hopeless, but when there the music will intoxicate, madden, and will finally charm his soul from his body.

Angels In Your Life

If you've heard that angels are here to help you, improve and empower your life, then what you've heard is true. Angels are creations of God, the Divine Creator. They are loving, kind, gentle, wise and powerful. They are here to help and heal, to guide and support every one of us while we live our lives here on Earth. All they need is the request from you.

Angels follow a very important divine law, that of Free Will. The law of Free Will states that no being can interfere with. The law of Free Will means that the only way one being can help another, is after being asked to do so. The only way the angels can give you the help you desire, is after you have asked for their help. The only time this law is passed over is in the case of mortal danger, in which case the angels will interfere if it is not your time to die.

Another consideration the arises from the Free Will law, is that the angels will not respond to your request to interfere in another's free will. This means that if your request is to have someone fall in love with you, own something that belongs to another or take a job that is another's, it will not happen. You would do better to ask for the angels to bring to you your ideal true love and help you clear anything that stands in the way. You could also ask for the perfect job that meets your desires or something better - a wonderful proviso that allows the angels to improve upon your request to bring about something even more ideal.

So, how to engage the angels in your life. First, you call them to you. This is done by saying in your mind or out aloud, "Angels, I want to start working with you, please come to me now!". The instant you call them, they come to you whether you can feel them or not. You can then make your request.

When preparing your request make sure you are clear on what it is you want to bring about. Make certain that you know and feel you deserve it. If at some level you have doubts about your self worth or fear the outcome of the fruition of such a request, you can short circuit the process, and it won't work. If this so you will need to use affirmations and other tools to clear away any such negative issues.

Wording for a request for a particular job, might be worded like this "I know that I am ready to move forward in my work to the next level. I call upon you, to bring to me the perfect job for me. The perfect job includes better pay, a great office with a wonderful view, greater responsibility in my area of expertise and wonderful people to work with! I ask you to create for me, this or something better!". Of course this wording is generalized, you can be more specific according to your needs.

The more you work with the angels, the more you will experience their power, love, generosity, willingness to help and guide.

Crop Circles- Natural or Paranormal?

Crop circles are not new. The first 'recorded' incidence took place in the 1687, where a farmer, apparently annoyed at the amount it cost to pay a labourer to cut his crop, complained that he would rather "have the devil" do it. That night, the crop seemed to be on fire, but in the morning, a circular pattern had appeared in the crop.

In the 1880's, mysterious circular spots of flattened wheat appeared in a field in Surrey for which no explanation could be found. A meteorologist described them as suggestive of cyclonic wind action, and there had been violent storms in the area over the previous few days.

In 1947, in Lincolnshire, a young farm labourer was working in an oat field on an ordinary April day. He heard a buzzing; like that of bees; that became a distant but high-pitched hum. Before passing out, the lad was vaguely aware of circles being formed in the oats. He was unconscious for more than 3 hours and was found to be suffering from the effects of a massive drop in air pressure.

That was one of the very few "eye-witness" accounts of crop circles in the making. There are one or two others.

In July 1981, a much-respected retired aircraft engineer was walking his dog near Westbury in Wiltshire: county of many crop circles! He witnessed a wide but invisible "force", moving across a corn field at about 50mph. The force stopped, and in around 4 seconds, had spun, forming a perfect, flattened circle in the crop. There was no wind, but earlier that day, there had been a thunderstorm. The man went on to develop a rare form of cataract, which he is certain is not coincidence.

In 1990, on a humid May evening, a young couple were walking through a cornfield on Bryony Hill, near Hambledon in Surrey. As they started downhill, they noticed that a sudden wind had got up, and looking back uphill, that it was actually bending trees. A dense "whirlwind" of mist rolled down the hill towards them, accompanied by a deafening, high-pitched noise. The change in pressure as the mist rolled over them was such that they couple could hardly stand, hardly breathe; their hair stood on end and they had pins and needles all over. While this was happening, the couple were aware that in a matter of seconds, a six foot wide circle had been formed in the corn around them. The whirlwind split in two, one forming a second circle, the other going off into the distance, while a succession of mini whirlwinds, described as "small, glistening vortices", were forming tiny circles in the corn. The experience left the couple nauseous and in shock, and they both had perforated eardrums.

On the face of it, these events look to have been caused by freak meteorological or atmospheric conditions - 3 of the 5 events involve high humidity or near-thunderstorms, and weather conditions were not recorded for the other two, though the "fire" in the 1687 incident was probably lightning. The changes in air pressure and experiences of the 1947 lad and 1990 couple suggest that they had inadvertently found themselves in the centre of small tornadoes. Not at all unlikely ... per unit area, the UK has the highest incidence of tornadoes in the world ... we are just lucky in that virtually all our tornadoes ARE small ones!

But the above crop circles were simply that - circles. The possibility that tornadoes might have formed complicated, geometric crop patterns is rather less likely!

Beautiful "spirograph" patterns began to appear in British crop fields in the 1970's. By the end of the 1980's, any number of artistic geometric masterpieces had popped up in fields all over the country, with the majority found south of the Thames.

There is no doubt that many, possibly the majority, were man-made. In 1991, Doug Bower and Dave Chorley admitted that they had been making crop circles of increasing complexity since 1976. But they didn't claim to have made all of them, and unless they were in two places at once, they couldn't have made all of them. There lies the problem of identifying which crop-circles are man-made, and which are "natural" ...!

Crop circles of near-impossible complexity have been man-made, with the perpetrators giving demonstrations of exactly how they were made. On the other hand, equally complex circles have also been claimed as man-made, but with the supposed perpetrators being mysteriously completely unable to describe how they were made, or replicate them. Beautiful, complex crop designs, that any human crop circle maker should be extremely proud of, have never been claimed as such. Not easy to work out real from fake then.

Despite years of scientific research into crop circles, we are no nearer knowing for sure which are genuine, or how, why and by whom the genuine ones are made.

It was thought that the ability to replicate a circle exactly would prove it as a fake, but that theory has now been discounted, as in most cases the replication team was a small army of trained people using all manner of scientific measuring equipment including night vision goggles! This is another problem - the emphasis (and therefore the scientific budget) is put on disproving crop circles, with the latest research suggesting that 80% of English circles are proven man-made, with 20% being "inconclusive"; but both the For's (and the Against's!) say that figure is unreliable. So far, there is still not even complete agreement as to what criteria should be used to denote a genuine crop circle. But there are ways ...!

1. The presence of magnetized iron spheres in the soil

2. "Microwaved" crops; where the molecular structure is broken down, and the stem falls because it is softened at the base. This suggests that a massive electric charge has occurred. Occasionally, charred stems are found in such formations, and in a "genuine" crop circle near Guildford, the charred and exploded remains of birds were found.

3. Seeds from inside some crop circle have been found to be dehydrated and wizened, but remarkably being viable and taking less time to germinate than healthy seeds.

4. An obvious one - circles formed on wet nights without a trace of mud on the flattened stems.

The difficulty is, this kind of scientific evidence needs to be collected as soon as possible after the formation of a crop circle, and before anyone has trampled it, and even though no-one can explain how these anomolies might have occurred, the experts are reluctant to admit them as "proof" of a genuine crop circle.

What are "ORBS"?

Orbs are believed (by many) to be ghosts in the form of balls of light. They are life forms that travel in groups and are believed to be the human soul or life force of those that once inhabited a physical body here on earth. Psychics claim to talk to them on a regular basis, and ghost hunters encounter them quite frequently. It is said that they are those spirits that have willingly stayed behind because they feel bound to their previous life or previous location for whatever reason. Because of this obsession they tend to become similar to a psychotic human beings. It should be said that the majority of us when we die proceed gladly and willingly to the next level of existence after saying our quiet good-byes, which means we're off to the spirit world. Then again, as stated, a select few elect to stay behind because of a refusal to move on. Apparently the longer they stay behind, the harder it is to find their way to the next level, which again, is the spirit world.
Ghostly orbs are the most photographed anomalies caught on film by ghost hunters and are quite photogenic (when they want to be). They can be completely transparent or display themselves in a bright solid form. It is not hard to capture them on film in their circular form. It is theorized that ghosts prefer the form of an Orb (ball of light) because it takes less energy thus being the mode of choice among the ghosts. The consensus is that small orbs take up the least amount of energy and apparitions and other fuller shapes take up the most. In the colder parts of the year, it seems that ghosts tend to find it easier to take on shapes other than orbs. That's when there is the most static electricity in the atmosphere. Those months being October through February. It is also believed that they are able to draw on our own energy when needed.  I've listed these ways but there are obviously many ways for ghosts to draw energy from the atmosphere and environment  but I won't take the time for that here.
If you're wondering, ghosts are normally harmless for the most part and have relatively no desire to bring harm to anyone nor do they have much of an awareness to act as such. Ghosts however, have been known to disrupt the lives of those that they effect and play pranks and move things about. To state it plainly, they are actually limited in the activities that they are able to carry out in their frame of existence. Non-human forms as well as evil spirits and demons, who have never had a body, have additional powers and have the ability to sway our thoughts and tempt our reasoning. This is why Ouija boards and other similar devices should be shunned! They have the ability to open windows into other realms of existence and can attract evil or bad spirits. If you are experiencing what you consider to be the effects of an evil spirit or demon in your life then it could be the location where you are living, but you must also consider your life style as well. In other words, how you are living or the activities that you involve yourself in that might  inadvertently be drawing them to you.
I might also mention a word or two about spirits in this forum. First of all, as I have alluded to earlier, ghosts and spirits are not quite the same. Spirits are capable of continuing a full existence on the other side with their full mental and emotional facilities intact, unlike their counterpart the ghost. You will most likely not encounter a spirit on a ghost hunt as you would a ghost. When they are detected, it is believed that their appearance might be in the form of ectoplasm mist, as well as a full bodied apparitions. They are permitted to visit on occasion and even communicate a message when they have permission to do so but for the most not they will not be picked up on any ghost detection devices or be photographed by any cameras (for the most part). Many believe that we have spirits assigned to watch over us, and that might very well be true but you won't normally be detecting them unless they have a special purpose in making there presence known. In other words Spirits (not ghosts) seem to have a finer spirit tissue that is for the most part undetectable. 
There are other theories concerning ORBS. I have in the past heard such theories that orbs might simply be Nature spirits or Airborne protoplasm as you would find under a microscope, except far more advanced. 
Other types of ghostly phenomenon are the vortex (funnel shaped appearance) and Ectoplasm (it has a mist or foggy appearance) also called Ecto Mist. These are often picked up on film and video as well but are much more rare. I'm not making any determinations to their origin but welcome any of your opinions on the subject.

Ghost Trains

Ghost trains, also called phantom trains are a paranormal phenomena that have been witnessed for many years. They are as large as the real thing, can be seen through like many apparitions can be, and can be completely silent, or instead can be accompanied by the usual whistles and other common train noises. Sometimes these trains have no drivers or passengers, other times there have been ghostly travelers on board. Most of these paranormal trains are spotted in the United States and of course the very haunted United Kingdom.
     One of the most famous ghost trains is President Lincoln's funeral train. After Lincoln's death in 1865 his body and that of his son Willie were carried by train from Washington all the way to Springfield, Illinois for burial. Now this train has been seen time and time again in phantom form, traveling along the same route on the anniversary of it's original journey. Some have even seen skeletons boarded on this paranormal piece of American history. Another interesting thing that has been said about this ghost train is that the clocks stop as it passes by.
     One of the British ghost trains is called the Nimbus. The Nimbus is a British Rail Class 55 "Deltic" diesel Locomotive that was taken apart for scrap metal in 1980. It was spotted several times after is was destroyed, the first time being only nine(9) months after it's destruction.
     Another famous ghost train is the St. Louis Ghost train. This paranormal train takes place around St. Louis, Saskatchewan, Canada and is especially know for it's phantom light. Some say it is the headlight of the train while others believe it to be a lantern carried by the ghost of a brakeman who had lost his head on the tracks from a train going by. He carries the lantern searching for his missing head. Skeptics say the strange lights are nothing more than headlights coming from a nearby highway.
     What causes ghost trains to appear remains a mystery. Even though we use the word "ghost" in the term ghost train, we know that they are not actually ghosts because the term "ghost" usually refers to the spirit of a deceased person. Ghost trains may be the product of "Place Energy" which is people,things,or events being recorded by an areas energy due to the repetition of actions or by intense emotions, and playing them back from time to time. Whatever a ghost train truly is, they are definitely a paranormal phenomena worthy of our attention.

What Do The Dead Want?

As a crystal ball clairvoyant, I have many people asking about the dead --- ghosts, hauntings and menacing tales. Are these spirits vengeful; are they peacefully resting; are they there at all? Where are the words of assurance, and the certainty that… we are forever.
True to physical life, ghosts enact their own personality. Often it is a dramatic death --- the whisking into infinity that leaves the spirit shocked, confused and sometimes not comprehending the dimension they are in. Another reason for the unsettlement is the person lived a tormented life of mental restriction, springing fears and prejudices. In death, they cannot unlock themselves, so as ghosts they repeat actions that they programmed into themselves in the previous life.

Therefore, what you are doing with your life is where you end up placing yourself in death. Are you bursting with revenge and jealousy now? What if you die this minute? Did you hide a treasure chest? Will you be constantly digging for it in death? If a person suffered a murderous end, will they meet cherubic peace upon death? Or, is it only the body that has the escape? Base thoughts do not get pasted over with sweetness. High thoughts, never foisted on anyone, must be honestly desired by the freewill. It is impossible to deceive The Energy of the Universe, and no amount of paraphernalia produces pure love.

Anyone who has entered an ancient place of woe will instantly feel the despair and heaviness because its "sense" has been engraved over time. Likewise for centuries-old prisons, castles, and mysterious houses of doom. Most people do know that spirit energy surrounds us. All of us are born with an awareness, though in different degrees of development. Whether we want to or not, we will recognize the movement of ghosts.

As to "good" or "evil" -- that will be seen by your inner eye using the same system that you decide everything with. Look into your sub-conscious and super-conscious. Suspicion and fear draw from your database, which has received information from your upbringing. It notes your response to situations, (you observe others) then inputs controls to your mind. We do not realise that we form over the years by whatever we absorb. Hence, the most important thing in your life is to guard your previous mind. Master your emotions now.

Are the dead sending us fluttery messages of love? Not always. Sometimes they have much more to say. Direct contact may elicit astounding conversations with the dead.

If the thought of ghosts makes your spine tingle, just remember that one day you too will be a spirit being. Are you afraid of yourself?

Develop your psychic power.

It is true that every one of us has psychic powers, extrasensory abilities that can extend our experience and insight to the world we live in. We depend upon these abilities even without realizing it, using intuition to make decisions, making 'lucky' guesses, especially in areas that we are skilled in or enjoy. But for most of the time, we remain unaware of this potentially explosive ability that we have at our fingertips!
As much as it is true that we all have these abilities, just like any gift or facility, these talents can lie dormant until they are developed through practice and exercise.
Before we delve into the development of these gifts, it is important to understand that there are many types of psychic ability and they come under four headings.

Clairvoyance - The ability to psychically see clearly;

Clairsentience - The ability to psychically feel or sense clearly;

Clairaudience - The ability to psychically hear clearly; and

Claircognisance - The ability to psychically know clearly.

Each of these categories covers a range of gifts and abilities the likes of which vary from person 
to person. Clairvoyance, for example, can include vivid dreams, visions, seeing auras around people as you look at them, or closing your eyes and seeing auras and much more. Furthermore, each person has all of these gifts, but to varying degrees. So one individual may have wonderful clairvoyance, good clairaudience, but minimal Clairsentience and claircognisance. Another may be extremely strong in Claircognisance but have little of any of the others.
As you develop your psychic gifts you will discover your strengths and weaknesses. It's important to develop all of the psychic gifts as all of them have the potential to expand and grow. Also, you may find with a little work, what was once considered your weakest gift can become an extraordinarily strong talent.

Developing your natural gifts is actually quite easy and much of their maturation comes from your intention to progress and the effort you put in to them rather than the exercises themselves. It is important to remove all over exerted effort or force. Imagine that the work you are doing is being fueled by a river of energy flowing through you rather than being forced or pushed by you. With each exercise you perform, focus on the activity itself rather than worrying about getting a good outcome, just enjoy the exercise for it's own sake.
Prior to starting the psychic development exercises, it is first important to understand how to protect yourself. Protection is important in any area of life, for example, you would not send a child off to walk to school on her own without first teaching her the skills involved in crossing the road safely. Likewise, in developing your psychic ability, you are stepping in to a new area of life, and it is important to do this work safely. These protection techniques will help you to do that.

Why Protect

Here on Earth, we have healthy and unhealthy people. Violence, hatred, bigotry of all kinds abound. To some degree we have all learnt to create boundaries for ourselves that protect us from the worst of this focus and behavior. As you develop your psychic gifts, you are opening the ability to tune in to people and energies in ways that you previously have not been able to. It is therefore important, to learn how to protect yourself at these new levels as well. These exercises are simple to use, and are powerful. The important thing to remember is to focus on the river of energy running through you that is being used to build this protection, rather than relying on your own energy and your own mind.

The Mirrorball

The first exercise is a visualization. It is as powerful as it is simple. Simply visualize a giant, sparkling, spinning mirrorball completely surrounding you. Each time a negative thought, focus, or being of any kind comes your way, they are repelled by the blinding light that they are faced with. This is a great exercise to do if you spend a lot of time around negative or needy people.

Archangel Michael

The second exercise involves Archangel Michael. This powerful angel is the protector and defender. He will never cause harm and he will always protect and keep you safe. For this exercise all you need to do is call Archangel Michael to you. You can do this out loud or in your mind. Say "Archangel Michael, please come to me now! Wrap your powerful wings of protection around me until I am completely shielded by you. Protect me from all negative or dangerous energy, Now!" Make sure you are clear and strong, not derogatory or rude.
These tools are two of many techniques that help to keep you protected and strong as you journey into your psychic gifts. As you develop your psychic gifts, you will come across many other methods of self protection and I thoroughly encourage you to explore and implement new tools if you feel guided to.

More Exercises

We have discussed important clarifications regarding individual psychic ability, you have learned about the four different categories of psychic talent and important tools in protection to be used during psychic development. Now you will learn a number of wonderful exercises to develop your own psychic talents and more important tools to keep you centered and strong as you develop your gifts.
The exercises used here are designed to develop your clairvoyance, clairsentience and clairaudience. I have yet to determine practices that specifically develop Claircognisance, although it does seem to develop as your other abilities grow.
Before you commence the exercises, remember to set up the protection tools introduced in the previous article. If you already have protection tools that you feel more comfortable with, by all means use those instead.
Once you have completed your practice and development session, make sure you ground yourself. Grounding is being fully connected to your physical body and the Earth. You can become ungrounded in a number of ways, but one of them is by working with your psychic gifts. When you do this work, you raise the level of psychic light or energy that is running through your conscious mind to the point where it can become unsettled and you can feel lightheaded, vague, disconnected. To remedy this, simply do something very physical. Wash the dishes, eat some food, dance to music with a heavy base or beat, or step outside and walk around barefooted on the Earth. These are all easy to follow actions that will bring you fully back into your body.
The first procedure you'll be introduced to in this article, is an exercise designed to help you identify your current level of skill in each of the four psychic areas. Please do not put too much emphasis in the results of this exercise, merely use it as a guide for helping you understand your current standing with these talents.

In The Kitchen

For this exercise, please use all aspects of your imagination. Experience this exercise in whatever way is easiest for you. Make sure you are comfortable, and that you won't be disturbed. Remember to relax and enjoy this.
You find yourself in the most beautiful kitchen with a great big picture window looking out over lovely forest. See the trees swaying in the gentle breeze, watch as some lovely kookaburras land in a tree and begin to cackle, laughing away as you listen to their delightful sound! Your attention is drawn back in to the kitchen when you feel heat on your leg. You remember that you are cooking a beautiful, chocolate cake!
Just as you remember this, the smell of chocolate cake comes wafting through the air! There's nothing like the smell of baking to make your stomach rumble! Then, just as you think you can't wait any longer, the buzzer or bell goes off on your oven. You grab some oven mitts and open the oven door, careful to avoid the rush of steam that pours out of the oven. You take out the cake and place it carefully on the bench. When it has cooled a little, you tip it out on the rack, and decorate it in whichever way you wish, icing sugar, cream, frosting.
Now here you have this beautiful chocolate cake and you just have to have a piece, so get a knife and cut into it. Watch (and smell) the steam rising out of the freshly baked cake. Pick up your piece and take a big bite out of it. That is the most perfect chocolate cake you have ever tasted!
When you are ready, return to the room, wiggle your fingers and toes to bring your consciousness fully back into your body.
So the questions are:
  • Did you see the kitchen, the forest, the kookaburras?
  • Did you hear the kookaburras laughing, the oven bell going off?
  • Did you feel the heat, taste and smell the cake?
  • Was any of this experienced more as a 'knowing'?
  • How easy was it to experience all of these things?
  • How clearly did you see, hear, feel all of these things?
  • Which was the easiest, seeing, feeling or hearing?
  • Which was the hardest?
The answers to these questions will provide some insight into where your more developed gifts lie and where your least developed gifts are. It is important to recognize that every individual's experience of their gifts is just that... individual. People can spend a lot of wasted time, lamenting the gifts and psychic experiences that others have and that they don’t, instead of exploring and developing the wonderful gifts they do have. Let go of preconceived notions of what constitutes a psychic experience and begin opening up to the wonderful gifts you have been given!
So, on to the psychic development exercises. I encourage you to practice each of these, even when you feel you are getting nowhere, you will be making crossroads at some level. Remember for every session to protect yourself prior to starting and ground yourself once you've finished.
If at any time you experience responses that invoke fear or discomfort, immediately call on God or Archangel Michael, to take you out of ego (fear and darkness) and into the light. Allow yourself to be lifted above any negativity.

Exercises for Clairvoyance - Clear Psychic Seeing

1. Seeing Colors - The first level to begin developing your clairvoyance is simply by visualizing. Start with colors, imagine seeing the color sky blue, magenta, red, emerald green and so on. If you have difficulty doing this, then buy some pieces of colored cardboard from the local newsagent. Choosing one piece of cardboard, look at the color for a while, then when you feel ready, close your eyes and imagine the color. Imagine a stapler that color, or imagine your house painted that color. Try to become accomplished in seeing as many different colors as you can. When you feel that you've mastered this exercise, move on to the next.

2. Seeing Auras - Now that you have become comfortable with colors, you can move on to seeing auras. This is the first level of this skill, but an important one. Think of someone that you know. Using your imagination, answer this questions. If you could see that person's aura in full color around their head area, what color/s would you see? Remember that there's no pressure, no one needs to know what you are doing. This is purely for the exercise of it. Keep moving around their body, imagining what colors you would see there. Practice this using a number of people you know and those you don't know like politicians, celebrities and the like. Practice it on TV personalities, whilst watching television. Before you know it you will be fluent in aura speak!

Exercise for Clairaudience - Clear Psychic Hearing

It is important, when dealing with Clairaudience, to understand that psychic hearing, although sometimes can feel like physical hearing, is often experienced more as talking in your head. No, you are not crazy if you experience this form of communication!
Receiving messages and writing them down has been a powerful healing and guidance tool since time began. This is also a wonderful tool to use to develop your clairaudience.
Archangel Michael is a beautiful and divine creation of God, who lovingly and joyfully supports, guides and protects each of us. Archangel Michael is very easy to hear, he is also very accurate in his messages. For this reason he is wonderful to work with in developing your clairaudience.

Archangel Michael's Messages

Have a pen and paper to write down any messages you get. Get comfortable and make sure you will not be disturbed. Do your protection exercises then...
Call Archangel Michael to you and say to him, "What would you have me know right now?" Then open up and wait for an idea, feeling, or thought to pop into your head. As soon as it comes, don't judge it, just write it down. Once you've written it down, go back and see if there is any more. You can ask questions to clarify what you are being told, or to expand on the information you are receiving. If at any time the message seems critical or negative, understand that your ego is getting in the way, so say to Archangel Michael, please take me out of ego and into the light so that I may hear your more clearly."
In performing this exercise it is vital that you do not judge what you are receiving, as it is common for people to think they are making it up rather than receiving it from Divine Source. If it is loving, positive and empowering, then it is coming from a Higher Place. If it is negative, unloving (to you or anyone else), competitive, or disempowering, then it is coming through a filter of ego and can be discarded. Keep practicing you will quickly get to know the difference.

Exercise for Clairsentience - Clear Sensing

In this exercise the design is to get you tapped in to feeling other people's emotions. (Please note that there are added clearing exercises to be performed at the end of this exercise.)
The easiest place to do this is somewhere public. A coffee shop is a great place to start. Having protected yourself prior to going to the coffee shop, take a seat somewhere that you are less likely to be disturbed but still have full view of the comings and goings. Start by choosing a waiter. Focusing on them, just open up and imagine what you think they are feeling. Are they enjoying their day, or are they feeling frazzled and tired. Do you imagine that this is their only job, do they have children, are they studying at University, do they have a marriage or relationship, are they social or private people, shy or outgoing, and so on. Just explore who they are. Make sure you are using your imagination and that you aren't pressuring yourself or second guessing what you come up with. Practice this regularly, and you will see a definite improvement in your ability to tap in to people. Make sure that each time you do this exercise, you complete the session with these cleansing practices and then ground.

Cutting Cords

Imagine lots of little cords attached to you and to the people you have worked with in this exercise. Now see a giant, powerful sword coming down and easily slicing through all cords, cutting them away from your body and dissolving into thin air.

White Light Shower

This can be done with a real shower or just as a visualization. See a running shower but instead of water, beautiful, sparkly white light is pouring out. Step under the shower and watch as any dark or gunky energy washes off you and pours down into the drain.
Once you have completed these exercises, ground yourself using one of the exercises mentioned earlier.
These are just some of many powerful exercises that you can use to develop your natural psychic talent. Your psychic abilities are gifted to you to support your journey through this world. Life becomes so much easier when you are using all of the gifts given to you for this journey.

What Makes a Ghost?

Much study and research has been done to determine why someone becomes a ghost and the prevailing theory is that when death is sudden and traumatic, it is more likely to result in a haunting.  .

Though some ghosts may stay here simply because they want to, most ghosts are caused by one of the following situations:

Murder -- especially those that remain unsolved.  Sometimes the ghost will not move on until the murder is solved.

Accidents -- Sudden death from accidents such as car wrecks, drownings, falls and fires.  Hauntings are far more prevalent from accidental deaths than those caused naturally.

Suicide --  The pain and torment that a suicide victim feels will often cause them to remain here in ghostly form.

Broken hearts -- Much like suicide, the pain and torment felt by someone who dies while mourning a lost love or a family member may cause them to remain earthbound.

Desecration of a grave -- While these spirits may have initially passed on, they will often return if vandalism, tombstone theft or other desecration of the grave occurs.

Greed -- Sometimes humans carry a preoccupation with land or money which can create hauntings, when the ghost is unable to let go of its earthly possessions.

Lack of a proper burial -- If the spirit believes he or she did not receive what they believe is a proper burial, they may remain.

How To Get Rid of A Ghost?

Do you think you have a ghost?  Do you want it to go away? 

No, that's not a dumb question. 

Some people don't mind spirits being around. In fact, I am one of those someone's.  However, I've never had a bad experience with a ghost. If you don't mind them, you can learn to "tune them out"; much like you might tune out the noise of a train that passes close to your home.  Some commercial businesses, such as restaurants and hotels, actually appreciate them, because they can help their business.

However, if you really want the ghost to go away, you can try a couple of things.  Also, make sure that you read those things that you should NOT do.

  • The easiest way to get rid of a ghost is to simply ask it to leave.   Use a firm voice and tell the ghost exactly what you want and why.  You might say something like this: "This is my house and it bothers me when you are around all the time.  Would you please leave?"   Remember, the physical world is your domain and ghosts rarely have any power in the physical world.
  • Ghosts don't always know that they are dead.  You may have to explain to them that they are dead, that they no longer belong in the physical world and will be better off if they move toward the light. 
  • Sometimes you may have to ask what the spirit wants.  This is often the case with someone who has recently passed over who may be attempting to communicate to you about something.  Afterwards, they are happy to leave.
  • Use your imagination to "see" loved ones, angels, or guides coming to
    take them to the light. 
  • When telling the ghost to "go away", do not yell or sound angry.
  • Do not give the spirit recognition by talking about it in your home, or maybe avoid talking about it all together.  This provides the spirit with energy, making it more powerful. 
  • Try not to show fear.  It is your home and the spirit can generally do you no harm.  Fear can also provide the spirit with energy.   
  • DO NOT use Ouija boards, Tarot cards, séances, or witchcraft when dealing with anything that is supernatural.  These items may actually increase spiritual activity and/or "open doors" that invite demonic and other unwanted spirits.

You May Be A Ghost-Host

Do you hear unexplained noises? Whether subtle or loud enough to wake the dead, if you hear the sound of footsteps, knocking, banging, rapping, scratching at the walls or floors, or the sound of some invisible something being dropped, you may be a ghost-host.

Do your doors, cabinets and cupboards seem to have a mind of their own? If you walk back into a room to find the door open when you know darn well that you closed it, or vice versa, you may be a ghost-host.

Does your furniture hop, skip and jump when you're gone? If your chairs, tables and lamps are in a different position when you come back into a room than they were when you went out of it, you may be a ghost-host.

Are you in and out of the light? If your electric lights are on when you know you switched them off, or are off when you know you left the light on, you may be a ghost-host.
Is your electronic equipment self-willed? If your television sets, radios, and computers go off and on, if the volume goes up and down, or if the channel changes with no help from you, you may be a ghost-host.
Do household items disappear, and reappear in the exact place you thought you'd left them in the first place? If something that you always keep in the same spot isn't there, and you search high and low and can't find it, and sometime later it shows up exactly where you thought you'd put it in the first place, you may be a ghost-host.
Are you living in the shadows? If you see unexplained fleeting shapes and shadows out of the corner of your eye (whether the shadows have vaguely human forms or not) you may be a ghost-host.
Do your animals sense something that you can't see? If your dog or cat behaves strangely (dogs barking at something that you can't see, cowering for no apparent reason, refusing to enter a room they're usually comfortable in, or cats appearing to be watching something across the room that you can't see) you may be a ghost-host.
Do you feel like someone is watching you? If you sense someone watching you when you're in a room alone, especially when you're in specific rooms at specific times, you may be a ghost-host.
All of these occurrences are fairly common, and happen all the time to ghost-hosts. Most people just learn to live with it. Sometimes, though, even stranger things can happen, things that made it even more probable that you're a ghost-host.
Do you see it with your own eyes? Finding a door open is one thing; actually seeing it open for no apparent reason is quite another. If you've witnessed the lights going on and off by themselves, the television and radio changing channels without benefit of the remote control, or watched window and door locks change position with no help from you, you can almost bet you're a ghost-host.

Have you experienced the touch? It's one thing to feel as though someone is watching you, but something else altogether when you feel like you're being touched and there's no one in the room but you. If you feel something brushing past you, something touching your hair or feel an invisible hand your shoulder, you can almost bet you're a ghost-host.

Are you hearing things? If you've listened to cries and whispers from unknown sources, muffled voices, your name being said, or music from some unknown source, you can almost bet you're a ghost-host.
Is the heat on? If you experience cold or hot spots in your house for no obvious reason, or the temperature changes with no apparent cause, you can almost bet you're a ghost-host.
Does the nose know? If unexplained smells (especially the distinct fragrance of a perfume you've never used or a foul odor with no discernable source) come and go without any apparent cause, you can almost bet you're a ghost-host.
All of these symptoms of ghost-hosting can be disconcerting, to say the least, but don't really put anyone in danger. Some hauntings, however, are much more serious in nature, and require the help of trained professionals to remove the offending ghost from the premises.
Do objects in your home move or levitate? If you've experienced dinner planes sliding across the table, or pictures flying off the walls, doors slamming shut with great force, or furniture sliding across the floor, you might want to call the ghost-busters.
Have you been physically assaulted? If you've experienced scratches, slaps and hard shoves from an invisible force (it's rare, but it happens!) you might want to call the ghost-busters.
Have you been given a message? If you've experienced unexplained writing on papers or on the walls, or see handprints and/or footprints that don't belong to anyone in the house, you might want to call the ghost-busters.
Are you seeing things? If you've seen an apparition (the physical manifestation of a spirit or entity), be it a human-shaped mist or transparent human forms that disappear quickly, or human forms that look as real and solid as any living person you've ever met but disappear before your very eyes), you might want to call the ghost-busters.
There are logical explanations for a lot that happens in our lives; don't jump to the conclusion that you're a ghost-host without checking out all of the 'rational' reasons things are happening the way they're happening. Make every possible effort to prove to yourself that your house is not haunted before you come to the conclusion that it is. And remember - the vast majority of houses are NOT haunted.
If you've ruled out any rational explanation for the phenomena you've experienced, and are absolutely convinced that your house is truly haunted, ask for help. There are hundreds of paranormal investigation organizations across the country; contact one in your area to help you discover what kind of ghost you've been hosting.

If she dreams of swimming in clear water naked, she will enjoy illicit loves, but nature will revenge herself by sickness, or loss of charms. If she sees naked men swimming in clear water, she will have many admirers. If the water is muddy, a jealous admirer will cause ill-natured gossip about her.

To see a female ghost in long, clinging robes floating calmly through the sky, indicates that you will make progression in scientific studies and acquire wealth almost miraculously, but there will be an under note of sadness in your life.
To dream that you see the ghost of a living relative or friend, denotes that you are in danger of some friend's malice, and you are warned to carefully keep your affairs under personal supervision. If the ghost appears to be haggard, it may be the intimation of the early death of that friend.
