I’ve been teaching psychic development and mediumship classes for 15 years, and before every semester begins, I study the latest work of experts in the field so I can deliver fun and innovative lessons to help my students tap into and strengthen their intuitive abilities. But lately, it seems I’ve developed a new method of instruction that I wasn’t even aware of. A couple students have told me that I’ve been teaching them by appearing in their dreams!
One student, who had taken my psychic development classes in Toronto, and was taking my three-day mediumship class in Lily Dale, New York – the largest Spiritualist community in the world – reported something interesting. She said I had come to her on the evening of the second class while she was sleeping in her room, and asked if she was enjoying herself and was there anything I could clarify for her. And that visitation occurred while I was a floor away from her, deep in my own sleep at the Maplewood Hotel in Lily Dale!
Several weeks ago, Patrick, one of my enthusiastic students, stayed after class because he wanted to talk about something. That evening, we had been practicing psychometry, the art of holding an object that belongs to someone, then sensing that person’s energy and giving that individual a reading. As usual, Patrick’s work had been very perceptive, and he’d also been very supportive of others as they gave him messages.
As everyone was filing out, Patrick said, “I don’t know if I’ve been dreaming, or having out-of-body experiences, but for two nights in a row, I’ve dreamed about you.” Then he laughed in that wonderful, infectious way of his that always gets the rest of the class smiling.
The first night’s dream, he told me, happened after he had used Kaya and Christine Muller’s Angel Cards. From the deck, he had randomly picked the card for Mikael, which represents the archangel Michael. The card listed a dozen of Mikael’s attributes, including “Procures lucidity,” “Allows us to discover secrets, mysteries.” “Instructs and teaches during the night” and “Establishes absolute Power of the Spirit.”
“I spoke Mikael’s name before I went to bed, and then I had a very short dream,” Patrick continued. “In it, you came to me and said, ‘You’re being announced in heaven, and you have arrived.’
“On the next night, you appeared and led me into a huge building. We walked up several flights of stairs and into a room that looked like an assembly hall. The room was bare, with no furniture, and it was filled with the students from many different teachers. One wall had a huge window, and I could see the moon shimmering over a mountain. Then you told everyone, ’I want you to walk around this house and feel infused with spirit. Feel spirit everywhere.’
“So I closed my eyes and took a breath in. I felt like I was breathing in spirit all around me. I walked through several rooms and I could sense different spirits in each room. And every time I sensed a spirit, I felt like I was connecting to the universe. And that everything around me was connected to the universe.
“The further I explored the house, the more wondrous it became. I entered a room with huge mirrors, and one mirror was filled with wavy lines, like the static you might see on a TV screen. Then the lines coalesced and formed the words: ‘The veil is coming down. The veil is becoming thinner. Breathe in spirit.’
“When I read those lines, I felt that message connected to my other dream, where you spoke to me and said, ‘I have arrived, and I am being announced in heaven.’
“You called us back into the main assembly room. There were fewer people there this time, and you led a session that was like one of our classes. I sat beside someone I knew, and we gave each other messages. My message was, ‘We know who you are, and you can do it. That’s what you’re here for.’
“Then I felt the spirit of someone before me – it was the spirit of my father, and he wanted to me to give a message to my sister. I also heard the name ‘Mary,’ and I received a message for Mary.
“After I woke up, I called my sister and gave the message to her about my father and Mary. Then I asked her who Mary was. She had to remind me that my father had a sister named Mary who was still living. But there was also a woman named Mary my father dated after my parents split up.” He paused a moment. “I intuitively felt the message was for the woman he was with rather than his sister. What’s amazing is my parents separated when I was one year old, so I didn’t even know that he’d had another partner named Mary at some point after the separation. Anyway, I passed on the message to my sister in the hopes that someday Mary will get it.”
Patrick grinned and shrugged. “That’s all,” he said. “But I just thought you’d like to know.”
I thanked him for telling me his story, then walked him to the door. “I believe we all leave our bodies during sleep and go home three times a week,” I said.
“Go home?” he asked.
“The spirit world. Some call it heaven,” I said, then joked, “I’ll try not to disturb your sleep anymore.”
Patrick laughed. “If you have to visit heaven, what better way to do it then with your teacher?”
