Ok this topic is always running through my mind A) because I still think its incredible that myself and others can interpret spirit and psychic energy phenomena, and B) As a science girl, I do believe that it all CAN be explained by physics, we just don’t really know it yet.
Everything is energy and energy is everywhere. It has been proven in science that anything with matter and acceleration has a wave behavior pattern AND a particle behavior pattern. The more mass, the more particle and the less wave and with less mass comes more wave and less particle. But EVERYTHING has a wave and particle component to its reality.
A wave is a wavelength of fluctuating energy. Think of radio waves, the color spectrum, and ripples in water. When this wave of energy interacts with something, a portion of it goes through, a portion of it is absorbed, and a portion of it deflects or refracts. This interaction point is the wave acting as a particle of energy. This particle interaction is how photographs and x-ray images are made, from wavelengths of light.
What the heck does this have to do with mediumship!?
Spirit does not have perceptible large amounts of mass, like people do. Meaning to our perspective, people are made of up mostly particle with a small wavelength output while spirit is made up of mostly wavelength and a small amount of particle interaction. This is why spirit when observed with our own eyes, which is rare, is often described as a thin see through mist moving through objects, because they have very little mass. Because spirit energies are mostly wavelength, they do not interact strongly as mass particle, meaning they can easily walk though what we perceive as solid objects.
When we interact or encounter a spirit energy we can experience their wavelength and mass as body sensations. This is commonly experienced as a cold spot, skin tingling, heat, pain, a spider web sensation or a light brush or touch.
Are these sensations real or made up?!
I believe they are real experiences because humans have actually evolved to detect wavelengths and interpret them in many different ways! Our traditional senses are seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, and smelling are all based on wavelengths and their interaction with a surface receptor. Hearing is our ear sense organs detecting sound waves which then are transformed into nerve impulses sent to the brain for interpretation. Similarly, but with a different wavelength type, our eyes have evolved to detect light waves which then are transformed into nerve impulses sent to our brains for interpretation and the creation of an image. In another way, our skin detects UV sunlight as heat sensation alerting us to staying out of the sun to avoid getting a sun burn.
Why is it so hard to imagine that our bodies have also evolved senses to pick up the wavelengths of other energies of low masses around us as well and have the ability to understand what they mean?!
These “extra” senses, often called the “6th senses”, are how mediums and every day people pick up information intuitively. They are generally called clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. Our bodies can detect spirit, in wavelength form, and interpret these wavelengths. This is an ability that every human being is born with, but it takes practice to attune this skill and become more adept at the subtleties and nuances of this energy reading.
There is some thought that the sense organ for these wavelengths is the pineal gland. The result of this gland getting activated is called the piezoelectric effect. For more information about the pineal gland and the higher mind, I highly recommend the books and writing of Dr. Joe Dispenza and his book Becoming Supernatural.
During mediumship, what happens is I experience an energetic sensation in one of my clair abilities (clairvoyance, clairaudience, or clairsentience). There is a pause as my brain receives the 6th sense nerve impulses for interpretation. Then I form a verbal translation of the sensation input to the sitter. For me at this time in my mediumship learning and development, there usually is a short pause or delay as I am moving from energetic input to verbal understanding output. But very skilled mediums may have no pause in interpretation. Its like understanding a new language but the language is written in particles and waves of energy instead of letters or hieroglyphics!
This is just another way to think about how this whole thing of mediumship or psychic readings are possible. Everything is energy, and energies are interacting all the time. Our bodies are incredible in that they are able to intrepret these energies!!!
