The debate over what constitutes positive or negative experience continues. We know that light exists but for many there is a refusal to acknowledge darkness or duality. Since the human body is dependent upon light for life it is important to clarify what is beneficial and what is not. Light is ‘electromagnetic radiation, the main source of which is the sun’. Shadow is defined as ‘ a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface’. This is ‘an opposition or contrast’ what we might describe as blocking the light.
During earthly life the human energy field radiates light which can be seen clairvoyantly or photographed using specialised technology. The subtle energy body of one who has left the physical body can also be seen, often clearly as a full body manifestation; not a shadowy figure but a vibrant,recognisable personality. Deceased relatives and friends may visit and be observed momentarily; this is benign contact, simply the means by which they wish to assure loved ones of their continued existance.
The energy sheath of one who for whatever reason has remained attached to a formerlocation or event may be observed as a ghostly figure, a lower frequency beyond the visual spectrum which can be filmed with special sensory cameras. Knocks, bangs or voices may occur in an attempt to communicate their presence and can be recorded sometimes with words or phrases clearly discernible.
The interest in all things paranormal at this time is reflected in the television programmes, ghost hunting, mediumship etc. and suggests an awakening of at least curiosity concerning whether or not consciousness survives the body. Where this indicates a spiritual search with a healthy skepticism the person will frequently be guided towards positive connections however risk factors remain and should not be ignored. Where there is curiosity only, accompanied by a denial that consciousness does exist beyond the body, or even worse, a desire to experience astral connections for gratification, risk factors are magnified.
The astral realms are multi dimensional and should never be investigated without preparation and an experienced companion, ideally a medium. Benign contact should never be assumed. Just as there are people and locations here on Earth which we would choose not to visit or at least not unaccompanied, so a degree of discernment is the first requirement. Both positive and negative vibrations exist within the astral planes. Shadowy figures may not be negative in the sense of intent however if shadow is ‘an absence of light’ we should remain vigilant.
Malevolent personalities exist in the astral world as they do in the physical. Contact with such spirits can result at best in manipulation and trickery and at worst in mental health problems and possession. The Ouija Board should never be used as a means of contact since this can open a portal which may prove impossible to close. As many have learned to their cost, putting the board away in its box may not be sufficient to disconnect a discarnate entity.
To be well we need optimum access to light to energise the cells. We facilitate this by choosing food and drinks which will nurture health. Similarly we choose to spend time with those who nurture our sense of wellbeing and avoid those who deplete our energy. For those experiencing psychic phenomena of a disturbing nature it is well to remember that light is always more powerful than darkness. We can do much to accelerate the presence of light to dispel such disturbances however we must be pro active, calling upon the light in whatever form in accordance with your belief system. The power of prayer can not be over emphasised.; choose a prayer and teach your children to pray.
