A ghost, a spirit, a poltergeist, oh my!!

We all have a soul, or spirit within our bodies. If everything were to go according to plan, when we pass on, our spirit will “Cross Over” to the “other side”. The other side is really just a different dimension and crossing over is just us leaving our physical body to return to spirit but the phrases, ‘cross over’, and, ‘other side’, will serve for this post.

Things you may see…

Etheric Body
We all have an etheric body that is an exact duplicate of the body we now have. It is a part of our Aura and extends out a few inches from our physical body. When our physical body dies, our etheric (energy) body stays the same for a time. If you swear you saw your grandfather standing in your living room at the same moment he passed on this would be his etheric body that you saw.

Entities encompass pretty much everything listed below. It is important to know though, that an entity can be just an “energy field” that inhabits a place. For instance if you live in a place where, in the past, there was a battle and death, you may just have the “energy” of the battle without having a “specific person” in your space.

Our Spirit is the part of us that never dies. The only people who can talk to spirits are mediums. Being a medium may be more common than you think. If you have talked to a spirit, you are a medium. (the strength of mediumship abilities varies).

Earthbound Spirits
An earthbound spirit is a soul that has not yet crossed over to the other side.

A ghost is an earthbound spirit that has been around for quite a long time.

A poltergeist is a ghost that has been around for a very long time and has learned how to manipulate matter. These are not necessarily ‘evil’. They just are. At one time they were human just like you. Pity would be a more appropriate emotion than fear. You can have these entities cleared by a professional. Clearing “entities” is not my specialty. I have done it a few times, but generally speaking it’s not my forte and I would refer you to others for that. If I find I am living in a space with ghosts I pay to have someone else clear them or cross them over for me.

There are many different reasons why someone may not cross over when they pass.

Some common reasons are:

  • Sometimes if their passing was quite traumatic or sudden they may not know that they are dead. They go about their business on earth having no idea why people cannot see them.
  • Some do not know that their loved ones have crossed over to the other side and they are waiting here for them.
  • Some are afraid because of their religious practices while they were living. Either their beliefs do not support an ‘other side’, or they are so fearful about “hell” (which does not exist), that they are determined they’d rather just stay here than cross into the light.
  • They may have what they consider to be ‘unfinished business’.
  •  They may be unwilling to leave behind a physical “thing”.

Whatever the reason(s), this is not where they belong. If you have a ghost in your home, the kind thing to do would be to have someone help you to have them cross over.

You are Powerful

You are powerful.  You create your reality whether you wish to believe it or not.

I have said many times before, everything is energy.  Our brain waves are energy, therefore our thoughts are energy. We are constantly bombarded with messages that tell us we are powerless and that there is nothing we can do about it.   We are told, “That is just the way it is”.  The only way you can get sucked into this is if you believe it. If you were to take a look around, you would see people all over the world, from all walks of life, in all different types of situations that are ‘bucking the odds’.  The ONLY difference between them and you is what you tell yourself. If you tell yourself you are powerless then you are powerless.  It is said that knowledge is power,  well, now you know, you have the knowledge that YOU CREATE YOUR REALITY.  Now you can take that knowledge and CREATE A REALITY THAT YOU WANT.

You may find that you are stuck in a ‘negative loop’ with your thinking.  You think the same negative thoughts over and over again.   As you ALLOW these thoughts to go over and over in your brain, they get stronger.  Every time you think that thought the negative loop gets stronger.  It is just like going to the gym,  as you work out your muscles, they get stronger.  By thinking the same negative thing over and over again, you are making your negative thought energy more powerful.  Imagine if you could do the same thing with positive thoughts, YOU CAN.

It is a Universal Law, the Law of Attraction.  Just because you cannot see it right now doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.  The Law of Attraction is as much of a LAW as the Law of Gravity.  We don’t have to know how it works, we just need to know that it exists.

Stop letting people tell you that you are powerless.  It is the saddest thing that I see on a daily basis, these ingrained programs, “I can’t”, “someone else is…”, “I don’t have…”, “I want”,  if only you knew just how powerful you are!!!  You CAN have it all.

There are a lot of folks out there that will tell you you have an addiction.  Whether its to a substance or to a behaviour.  Addicted to alcohol, drama, sex, exercise, drugs, poverty… the list goes on and on.

What it really is, is a learned behavior and brain pattern.  You do the same thing over and over again, you THINK about it all the time so it has a lot of power, NOT OVER you but FROM you (via your thoughts).  The more you do it, the stronger the synapses in your brain get, the more energy you put out.  The more you tell yourself that you are ‘addicted’ the stronger the synapses (or loops), get.  Your thought forms are now a habit.

You can replace your thoughts and therefore replace your behaviours, replace your addictions, replace your outcomes.  If you tell yourself something often enough it becomes your reality.  If you tell yourself, “I cannot stop messing around on my spouse, I must be addicted to sex” ~ sorry, that’s a bunch of baloney.  What it is is that you are running a tape in your head that reaffirms that you are powerless to control yourself.  You may be running a tape that says “I need variety and excitement in my life”, you may have a tape that says “I can’t have sex with this person he/she is too pure”, or “I don’t really love this person and I shouldn’t have gotten married”.  Whatever you are telling yourself is a habit, it does not need to stay your reality.

There is NO NEED to live with lack, or unhappiness, or without inspiration.  All you need to do is decide.  Decide what you want.  Practice thinking differently.  If you say “I cannot control myself, I can’t stop eating, it’s an addiction”, then that is EXACTLY what you will continue to get.  If you tell yourself over and over again you love vegetables as a snack and practice eating vegetables, you will acquire a taste for them and eating them will become a habit.  If you tell yourself, I can get off my ass for 10 minutes and go for a little walk, I can do something, anything differently.  And keep telling yourself that over and over.  It WILL sink in to your subconscious and things WILL change.

Chances are, whatever you are going through took time to take root.  It may take some time to rebuild/reprogram, but IT CAN BE DONE.  Every time you have ANY thought for the next while, I urge you to look at it and see what its saying to you.  What YOU are saying to you.  Look long and hard if you have to.  If your thought contains a reality that you do not want.  CHANGE YOUR THOUGHT!!!  I guarantee you that if you change that thought often enough your REALITY WILL CHANGE.  It can’t not.  Everything is energy, whatever energy you put out is what you get back.

Brief Updates

Hello everyone,

Its been a long time since I have done a blog post.  I will likely have a new one up in a day or two.

In the meantime I just thought I’d touch base with a couple of updates.

I was a little ill in June and got somewhat behind on things, between that and school field trips with my son.  I did manage to get a newsletter out in June though which you will have gotten if you subscribe to it.

I’m determined to be enjoying life as I am working my butt off, so I have been camping a couple of times with my family and will be going again, I have had out of town guests, and have taken some time for exercise (no where near enough) and spending time outside, a couple of beach days, things like that.

Life is meant to be enjoyable and I have not always ‘practiced what I preach’ so I’m working on it.

At the beginning of July I took a Reiki Level I class with  It was a lot of fun and, of course, I got my Level 1 Reiki Certification.  If you are considering taking Reiki, I highly recommend Drea as a teacher.  She is very gifted and has great energy.

I am trying to stay up to date with responding to emails and doing readings.  I had some flooding issues with my house so in-person readings have been challenging.  Phone or email psychic readings are a little easier at the moment.  My home is sometimes a busy place and finding a good space to meet with people can be a bit of a challenge (not insurmountable though).

I have also been taking a lot of training.  Its like I can’t get enough of reading and listening and learning right now.  I find that with learning life gets a little bit more exciting too.

I will also be doing up a page on my website for any of you who may be interested in being coached/mentored/trained by me.  Hopefully it will be up in the next week or two.

Here is a testamonial from Drea (the person I took Reiki from), on her experience working with me as a coach/mentor.

“I started Tamara’s coaching program in the spring of 2009 and it was one of the best things I have ever done in my life.  Prior to starting my sessions with her, I was living a completely different life.  I was unhappy, unfulfilled and I didn’t know the direction my life was taking.  Tamara gave me many tools to help me clear stuck energy from the past as well as tools to help me develop the intuitive gifts that I have.  Today I am living my life with purpose, passion and I feel truly blessed to be able to help others do the same.  Thank you Tamara!  ”
