Editor's note: Ashley brought this topic to me recently in group forum as a great idea for a post. It's something commonly discussed among clairvoyants, but not often publicly. So today on the blog, we're changing that and featuring a topic that presents just one more way you can work those gifts. Ashley, please, take it away -
Memories, they can take us back to some of our favorite moments in time.
They paint pictures of days past, and give little snippets of a life that once was.
We may envision our grandmother’s kitchen and in the corner is her old potato bin, filled with sweet potatoes just for us.
Moments in time such as this probably seemed so insignificant back then and what you wouldn’t give to go back to that moment just for one second. Vivid memories can not only remind us of a scene frozen in time, but also of the feelings that came along with it.
Recently I came across a question asking if memories could possibly be tied to clairvoyance. I jumped at the opportunity to answer it because the answer is... YES.
Each and every person uses their intuitive abilities at some point in their life.
It could be mother’s intuition, knowing that something is off with a new colleague, or even using them during a mediumship reading.
The fact of the matter is we all have a heightened awareness at some point or another. It’s simply a matter of tuning in and noticing the messages when they come through.
When a clairvoyant gives a reading, they use images and movie-like scenes provided by spirit to get their message across. Spirit can tap into your memories, client’s memories, their own memories, all to help paint the picture of the message they are trying to relay.
Think of it as taking water from the well.
When connected to your energy, guides can scoop up stored memories from the well, and show you images, places, people, that'll help you paint a better picture of what's going on. And, these memories help remind you of feelings you had at that moment in time, which will in turn improve your empathy with your client or with whatever is going on.
All of this is to help you connect better, easier, and quicker with what they're trying to say.
"But why would spirit use my own memories to get a message across, when they can do other things, like appear as an apparition, or show me a symbol?"
Spirit will try all kinds of things to get their messages across, even if that means showing you your own aunt to signify something. They will use your memory to connect the dots for you to the person you're reading, even if that person is you.
True to life, this is something that has been happening more and more frequently during my own mediumship readings.
Clairvoyance manifesting through memories.
And I love it.
Not only does it help me more easily connect the dots, but it’s much easier for me to get a clearer picture of what’s going on.
And while I use all of my senses to give a reading, the one I rely on the most is clairaudience; with clairvoyance being a close second.
Here’s a short example from my own practice of how clairvoyance could work through a memory, in a professional setting:
During a recent session, I had a spirit who could not communicate clairaudiently; he tried and tried but it just wasn’t happening. So he communicated clairvoyantly instead.
He showed me himself, I could see him clear as day and I explained what he looked like to my client. She confirmed through those visuals that was her grandfather that we intended to connect to.
He had a kind smile, wore some gardening gloves, and a bucket hat.
The grandfather motioned for me to follow him in the vision and soon I saw my own grandmother’s old home. He walked me through the front foyer, through the kitchen before it was remodeled, and all around the outside of the house. We went out to the garden, behind the house, and around the pool.
As I explained the scene to my client she burst into tears and told me that I was explaining to her was the house she had just purchased. This house happened to be the estate of her deceased grandfather.
She wanted to know if she was making him proud and if the house was being taken care of the way he would have. This client also wanted to know how in the world he kept up with all of that yard and landscaping.
Her grandfather showed me a few things he used to do around the yard that she hadn’t even thought of. He even walked me to a back window where he had been admiring all of her hard work; this window looked the exact same as the one in my grandmother's old house.
This type of thing is common for clairvoyants.
If a spirit can communicate a message through your own memories they will likely choose to do that, especially if it’s the easiest way to explain what they’re trying to talk about. It’s easiest for them to use your memories (as it’s just tapping into well source already present) to get the feelings across this helps the person you’re reading to make the connection, too.
What does it mean if you’re not reading someone else, but you're getting vivid memories popping up without something triggering you?
If this happens, take a moment to close your eyes and really put yourself back into that scene and ask yourself these questions:
Is there someone in that scene that is no longer with you?
Perhaps you’re seeing a lake house that you used to go to when you were 4 years old.
Who did you go there with? Are they all still living?
If this happens to you, it may be that a loved one is trying to communicate with you or a guide trying to send you a message. In this case, I advise you to take a few minutes to meditate and try to connect if the timing is right. You may be surprised at the images and messages you receive yourself.
And as always, make sure to pay attention.
