I've been a bit confused lately. You see, I'm constantly reading stories about seeing spirits/ghosts and such, and I fully believe in them. Supposedly, I also have a decent third eye. Yet, seeing spirits just never works for me. In all truth, I don't want to see them (I get nervous easily) but on the other hand, sometime's I do...
Well, it's just confusing. Am I missing something? Is there a reason as to why magick, spirit seeing, tarot cards, etc. Never seem to work for me? I've been trying and trying, it's just... Nothing will work. The only spirit sighting I remember is when I was younger at a restaurant, and I saw what looked like a 3 fingered hand floating. It was scary -_- Afterwards, nothing like this ever happened again.
Thanks for reading! I apologize if this is the wrong topic; Forums always confuse me ._.
Perhaps you ahve a mental block i would suggest doing more basics. Read more on tarot cards mediate with your tarot cards. and perhaps look into chakras. start from the root up. I wish you luck and we all have an obstical just need to be able to go by it and learn from it.
To see Spirits is different for everyone. Some people are just born with the ability. Some open their third eye chakras(and should open and balance All of them). Some are clairvoyant. I find that you have to really believe in the spirits, acknowledge them, and want to see them. But that is not always the case.
Sometimes seeing an apparition happens once or twice, sometimes it happens a whole bunch of times. Seeing a spirit, in the sense of communicating with it, doesn't necessarily mean physically seeing it. When spirits make contact, images of things and images of words appear to your mind. Communicating with a spirit isn't looking face to face with one and having a conversation. For instance, sometimes I "hear" words inside my head when they communicate with me. Sometimes I just see images of things related to what they're trying to tell me, such as a chair, a house, or if they're referring to a person who is (for example) a female with blonde hair, who works at the supermarket, Ill see images of a checkout line, food etc and a vague image of a female with blonde hair (not facial features, never that distinct unless a dream).
like mentioned above, there are different ways to 'see' spirits, as we get older we're less perceptive. as a child i could see spirits like they were living people, now i can feel something in the room, around certain times of the year i can hear them easier, but i can't see them anymore.
you're afraid, which is probably causing the mental block which prevents you from seeing them. you could have a fully opened chakra, but if you're scared, even a little, it won't do anything. you need to let go of your fear, spirits aren't scary looking. i've seen many spirits, the only time i've ever been scared is when they intentionally jump out to scare me. otherwise, they're siting or standing or whatever, they just look like people. i'm not saying all do, but the one's i've met do.
chakra work would help, you could have an imbalance in the natural flow of energy in your body. let's say you do have a fully opened third eye, but your heart chakra is completely closed, this will stop the natural flow and cause energy to pool in parts of your body. with a fully open third eye it can cause headaches. build yourself up slowly, work on each chakra individually on a daily basis, each week, adding another one. example, week one, each day you focus on one chakra, week two, you focus on two each day, week three, three chakra until working up to all 7. there's also some tea's you could try, and even some chants that might help.
All replies on this post are very true, but I would like to add that some times you just need to know yourself. You need to know why you are wanting to see or communicate with spirits. I don't mean why you think you want to but why you really want to. What are your intentions? Sometimes if your intentions are for personal gain, ( recognition, to be different, to fit in with someone, ect.,) your subconscious will block your abilities until you have the right intentions. Just something to think about.
Thank you everybody for replying. I'm sorry about acting so desperate, I was really having a mental breakdown right there -_-. I had spent the entire night up until 4:00 am reading ghost stories, probably had to do with it.
I realize that the reason I don't see them is because I realize that they are my worst fear. I was thinking about it, and I realize now that all my fears are because of it.
-Mirrors: Afraid of seeing "somebody" other than myself (Is this even possible?)
-Turned off tv's and computers: Same as above
-The dark: Seeing supernatural beings
I can't believe I've never realized this before. Now I'm quite glad. The last thing I would want to do is see/communicate with a spirit, be it good or not. So, I'm going to stick with other things, such as simple psi balls and such.
i still say chakra work, it'll help with many different things. second i'd move on to shielding and other protections. if you're hoping to one day work with spirits, you need to protect yourself to some degree. while not all spirits are evil, you could get hurt, better to be safe than sorry.
on regards to your fears:
~ i've never seen spirits in mirrors, i've tried, but never saw anything. in a black mirror, or skrying, you can see things, but if you think while brushing your hair, or saying 'Bloody Mary' 3 times, won't really happen. there's a very slim chance, but it's the same as being struck by lightning, can happen, but rather low.
~ i find it easier to see spirits in a turned off tv, it's the same as mentioned above, you're skrying. you can see things in the tv, but again, for something to just appear it's rare. if a spirit already there, then yes, but personally, i see it the same way i'd see myself, an outline with some features, but really not a obvious face or something. i use to watch shows about hauntings, still like them but they're never on. anyway, Rori [a spirit] would sit next to me watching them, i would see him in the tv, but i couldn't next to me, so it's easier imo to see them in tvs.
~ seeing spirits and other beings in the dark, i find they're more active, but again, Rori's just bugging me when i want to sleep. your eyes play tricks on you in the dark however, so you shouldn't chalk it up to a spirit or something else. though Rori will walk around the room at night and i see a shadow, so you can, but rule out everything else first.
above all, you don't have to worry, it can be a little shocking seeing something the first time, i still feel a little chill the first time i see/hear a spirit, but i've never been hurt by one. Rori use to poke me in my side to get me up when i was in school and didn't finish a project, but other than that, they're mostly talkative.
