Spiritual Sessions with Linda
Whatever your spiritual path, I can assist.
Psychic powers? Voodoo curses? Sorcery in the modern world ?
If you think this is all hogwash, I don’t blame you. Half the stuff I see on the net has me shaking my head.
All I can say is, after a few decades of practicing spiritual methods, I’ve seen results that just can’t be explained by science.
And whether it’s “real” or not, many people find that spiritual beliefs do improve their lives.
If you’re not into spirituality, that’s fine. Most of my work isn’t directly spiritual. But if you’re into it, we can talk.
You don’t need to believe in anything to benefit from this type of session.
You know how there’s a little voice inside each of us that encourages us to do stupid stuff that’s selfish bad for us? And there’s another little voice that encourages us to do the right thing, to go out of your way to be kind? Freud called those the Id and the Superego. The Id is all the animal impulses we try to control (for food, sex, violence, etc.) and the Superego is the internalized set of all the rules your parents taught you while you were growing up. The Superego’s job is to make us feel guilty when we break those rules. Basically, you have a part of your unconscious mind that’s your parents, and another that’s a little brat that wants wants wants all the time! You are the Ego, and the Ego’s job is just to make choices.
Some people represent this as a little angel and a little devil sitting on your shoulder. There are no spirits involved, it’s just different parts of you that want different things. Part of you wants to work, cause you know you have to. Part of you wants to have fun… cause what’s the point of working if you can’t have fun? It’s normal to have both parts, and it’s healthy. But sometimes they get in each other’s way. You go to a party, but you feel guilty about chores you haven’t done. Or you work, but you can’t stop thinking about what you’d rather do. There are ways to mediate this conflict so both sides can get what they want.
In fact, we have a whole bunch of parts inside us! In addition to Work and Fun, most people have a Creative Part, a Sexy Part, a Child part, a Caregiver part, and many more. This is healthy and normal. After all, you really *shouldn’t* be the same person in bed with your partner as you are with your co-workers. Otherwise your relationships won’t last long! It’s not the same as having multiple personalities (which is an extreme version of this), it’s just that you have different aspects to you for different situations.
For most people, these parts don’t have actual faces. They’re just nebulous parts of your Unconscious mind, and you don’t get to choose when they inspire you. What we can do with hypnosis is make them into three dimensional characters that you can talk to and get help from.
- So if you need to be creative, you go inside yourself and talk to your Creative Part. Maybe she’s a hippie living in a 1970’s style psychadelic living room. She’s got the answers you need. Maybe he’s a painter at his canvas.
- If you need to get things done, you can go inside yourself to see your Willpower part and ask for help. Maybe he’s an angel with a flaming sword that’s good at keeping you in line. Or maybe it’s a Dominatrix with a whip. Whatever rocks your boat.
See what I mean? These are just examples of course, everyone’s parts are unique. Creating your Council of Inner Advisors means you can get the inner resources you need WHEN YOU NEED THEM. Useful AND fun! Assume 3 or 4 sessions to get this done, and you’ll be set for life!
Meeting archetypes is another option. Carl Jung extended the work of Freud by saying that there are archetypes shared by all humans, as part of the collective unconscious, and some that are culture specific: The Mother, The Warrior, The Savior, The Child, The Healer.
Then there are cultural specific minor archetypes. Some are real people, some are fictional characters. It doesn’t matter. Einstein is the embodiment of creative genius. Superman is the embodiment of the virtuous champion. Spock is the embodiment of logic.
You can meet with these minor and major archetypes in trance, get advice, and make them part of your Councile of Inner Advisors. Think of it this way: your inner Einstein is made up of everything you believe him to be, from the very best and smartest parts of you. It’s not the real Einstein, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that he’s real to you.
Okay, now let’s assume there are spirits, and by this I mean any being that doesn’t have a physical body at the moment. You may believe in some or all of the following, take your pick: God, Jesus, angels, ghosts of dead people, power animals, spirit guides, Pagan gods and goddesses, faeries, nature spirits, etc.
So pick your favorite spiritual being that you want to have a chat with. Can I force them to appear for you and give you a spiritual experience? No, of course not. I highly recommend praying, communing, making an offering, or whatever else you do in your spiritual practice, to ask them if they’d please come and talk to you. That’s part 1.
Part 2 is making it EASIER for them to chat with you. That’s where I come in. Because spiritual beings talk to us all the time, it’s just not always easy for us to hear them. I can make it easier. How?
Well, throughout history, there have been three common ways to get a spiritual experience: dreams, trance, and visions.
Spontaneous visions: are great… if you happen to be St-Paul or Moses. It takes a lot of effort to get through a human’s thick skull, and most spirits either don’t have that kind of power, or don’t want to spend it if it’s not absolutely nececessary.
Trance: is the most common method. It’s done through meditation, guided meditations, self hypnosis (which is really the same thing as meditation), hypnosis (which is really the same thing as a guided meditation). Doing it on your own takes training and effort. Having someone to guide you makes it a lot easier. That’s what I do for you, and I can probably get you to a deeper trance than you can get on your own.
Dreams: This is how spirits generally send messages to us numbskulls who aren’t paying attention. They come into our dreams, and our unconscious minds give them a role. And since they’re fully aware of what they’re doing, they can shape our dream much more easily than we can. The only problem is, we often forget the dream when we wake up. So we have a vague sense of it, and it’s stored in our unconscious mind, but it’s not ideal.
Deep Trance Is Equivalent To Dreaming
Check out the brainwaves of someone in deep trance, and someone who’s dreaming. They’re basically the same frequencies. In fact, that’s why hypnotized people can hallucinate weird stuff. There’s nothing mystical about that: They’re just dreaming! Flying elephants are normal if you’re dreaming.
So when I use hypnosis to bring you to a deep trance, you’re in a dream state, and spirits that you’ve invited can enter the dream very easily to talk to you. If they want to, of course. And I can’t guarantee that you’ll get exactly who you asked for. So use common sense, and decide for yourself is the advice they’re giving is wise or not. If you have experience with a particular being, you can probably tell if they’re the real deal or not. Spiritual relationships are like any other relationships, you have to spend time and effort on them if you want them to work for you. Otherwise, if you just want to grab what you need and go… well… then it’s like any other professional relationship. You gotta pay if you wanna get some. There are spirits like that, where you can pay for services rendered. The spirit world is not terribly different from the human world. But there are customs, and it’s easy to piss them off if you don’t know them. Like, don’t offer pork to Allah. Bad move. You have to research them if you want to play with them.
See the review below for an example of how such a session goes.
A Grab Bag of Spiritual Stuff
There are many things we can do together, and it’s hard to list them all. But basically, the roles I identify with the most in my spiritual practice are those of Muse, Seer, Bard and Teacher. That is, I help inspire people to be the best they can be and to overcome their inner demons. That’s what I normally do in therapy sessions. The fact that it’s part of my spirituality isn’t really important for people to know. I do what needs doing. On the other hand, I can’t do it for free. Giving without receiving just means you empty yourself, and my rent does need to be paid. There has to be some exchange.
As a Seer, I use intuition and divination to offer guidance in making choices. I sometimes use Tarot, but generally prefer the runes (a Viking divination system). In particular, I like using the Soulmap to do readings. It is a map that represents 17 parts of the self known in the Northern Tradition. To name a few, the Lich is the physical body, the Hame is the spirit body, Ond is the vital breath, Litr is sexual energy and vitality, and Maegen is personal power derived from honorable behavior. There are 12 more, and I use colored stones to make a spiritual diagnostic of the state of each: Normal, Low, Exceptional, Blocked, Wyrd or very very rarely, Missing. Then I draw runes for each position to get an idea of what’s going on with it. Soulmap readings are to be done no more than once a year, unless some very major change has occurred. They’re meant to point out what’s out of whack, what to work on, and where you may have untapped talents. Sometimes, the Powers That Be have stuff they require you to do, and that comes out as well.
Please understand that I don’t do fortune telling. I won’t tell you if your boyfriend is cheating, or whether you’ll inherit a fortune in the coming years. I could do it, but it’s pretty pointless. You’ll find out when you get there. And even so, fortune telling is just about telling you what will most likely happen if you keep doing what you’ve been doing. Nothing’s set in stone. You could choose to go to Guatemala next week. But chances are, you won’t. There are choice nodes along everyone’s timeline, and I can read what your most likely choice is. But it’s all just reading probabilities. Some people get dragged around by Fate, but they’re fairly rare. Most of us have free choice. If we choose to use it.
The real point of divination is to help people make better choices. I don’t pull out runes to decide what I should wear for a party. I consult them when I have to make an important decision, and there just isn’t enough information to make a rational choice. It’s like consulting some sort of sage for advice, one who has a much better idea of the situation and the consequences of my actions. The runes never tell people what to do. They just give warnings and encouragements.
“There’s a girl I’m really into, but I don’t know if I should ask her out.”
“What are your choices?”
“Well, I can ask her out, or not”
“I need a third choice. What else can you do?”
“I suppose I could join a gym and see if I can meet someone there”
“All right, here’s the results: If you ask her out, I see some rocky beginnings, and an issue related to her honor, like dating would be breaking some rule for her. I see about 6 months down the line that it clears up, and you have at least 6 months of a good relationship.
If you don’t do anything, I see some self esteem issues popping up, but 2 months down the line, you come to a choice point where you can have a big realization about yourself that changes your life. It’s not guaranteed that you figure it out, but I’d say about 70% likely that you do.
If you go to the gym, I see a fling… let me pull some more runes… ah yes, three flings. None of them leading anywhere. And the result… well, releasing tensions is good for your professional life. But your emotional life is kinda flat.
What branch would you like to explore now?”
Notice that none of the choices are clearly superior to the others. You can choose to go into a relationship that is doomed to fail in three months, and where you won’t even get lucky. Perhaps there’s something you want to get out of it that’s worth the pain of the breakup. It’s your choice. It’s always your choice. Avoiding pain and choosing the easier option is not always the wisest thing to do. We do need some hardships to make our joys more meaningful. So if you courageously choose the harder road, you do so fully aware of what you’re doing, and of the price you’ll pay.
I can help train in energy work, sensing and seeing auras, intuition, divination, psychic protection, cleansing, banishings, ritual magic, trancework, journeying. Some call it psychic training. I call it magical training. And I like to call it sorcery training, simply because it’s fun to call it that way. Yes, you can make things happen by magic. It’s not even terribly hard. The limitation to influencing events is that results come in what seems like coincidences. However, after many years of practice, there are so many coincidences that you can’t really explain them away. This stuff works. I don’t use it much for myself, because there are almost always unintended consequences. Often quite amusing, sometimes disastrous. If you like, think of it as prayer on steroids. That’s all a spell really is, after all: you’re wishing for something to happen. You just have a technique to increase the chances that it will happen, and you don’t necessarily call on a divine being to do the job for you. You can do it yourself. But it’s good idea to add a prayer to the spell, so that it not cause any harm. I’m sure you’ve heard many Genie jokes. It’s a bit like that. Just be careful what you wish for.
