They always say that we are taught History so that we can learn from the past and not make the same mistakes. The same can be said for learning from our past mistakes. You learn about what kinds of girls/guys you shouldn’t date, or that mixing various types of alcohol on a wild and crazy night means a massive hangover the next day. Those are things we can remember to learn from (or things our friends have told us about that need to be learned from LOL). But have you ever stopped to consider that perhaps there are lessons that we need to learn from our past lives?
I don’t think it’s uncommon for people to attribute strong or irrational fears to things that have happened in our past lives. I know that I have a very real fear or drowning and have always believed that I was a passenger on the Titanic. Some may say that is silly, but I always had an obsession with the Titanic and had very strong and real feelings when I attended the Titanic exhibits. This concept doesn’t seem foreign to me at all. Recently I read an article about healing current life issues through healing the akashic records. The author discussed how knowing about patterns in our past lives can lead us to ways to heal ourselves.
To me this is an interesting concept. I’ve always joked about having been a womanizing man in my past life and that’s why I have been so unlucky in love during this life. Maybe it’s not truly a joke? Perhaps karma does shift through the akashic records and affects us in following life times. Stay tuned for more discussions on past lives as I delve more into using reiki to help heal our own akashic records.
One of the questions that I get asked the most about my sensitivity is when I first realized I had “IT”. I can honestly say that I don’t remember a defining moment. There wasn’t that one thing that clued me in. I’ve had experiences for as long as I can remember. Some of those experiences were seeing, feeling or in the form of premonitions. The problem for me was, my family is Italian so I come from a long line of sensitives. For the longest time I believed that what I was experiencing was normal and something that everyone experienced. My family members have experienced so many of the things I have that it was just something that I was used to. It wasn’t until I got older and started talking to other kids about ghosts and realized I wasn’t really “normal”, not everyone had these experiences.
Growing up I had so many experiences seeing spirits, knowing things before they happened and just other basic intuitive moments about people and life. One of the most notable was when I was 10 years old and went to the Jennie Wade House in Gettysburg. We were walking around with our tour group and I saw a woman in a white dress who was there for a moment and then gone. I turned to my mom and told her about the ghost I had just seen. She tried to reason it away that I was just imagining things but I knew I wasn’t. It wasn’t until I started reading book after book about hauntings that I found out that the Jennie Wade House was reported to be haunted and have since learned others have seen the same thing there that I had. This was a big moment for me!
It was many years after this experience when I joined South Jersey Ghost Research (SJGR) and began to explore my intuition. When I joined the group I figured I would just go with the flow and hope that maybe I would see something along the way. Well, not only did I SEE something, I also started to feel, hear and communicate with spirits. At the time this all started happening I couldn’t process it all. I remember spending an hour on the phone with the Directors of SJGR because I was ready to quit. I had an experience that completely threw me over the edge. During an investigation the night before, I had been sitting on the steps in a private home. I began to feel something around my neck that started to tighten and then felt as if the tightening was pulling up under my chin and jaw. It was then I blurted out, asking if someone had hung themself in the home. It turned out that a prior occupant had in fact hung himself in the garage behind the house. That feeling scared the living day lights out of me. Luckily the directors talked me into staying and I learned more about shielding and grounding techniques.
I am thankful for the guidance provided to me in regards to my abilities! We are ALL sensitive (psychic). Some people have the ability stronger than others and some work really hard to build on their ability! In the end, it should not be something you are afraid of like I was. There are so many resources out there to learn from and gain information! Never be afraid to ask 😀
For many years I have contemplated writing a book about the trials and tribulations of being me. I am no one special in this big world.. errr.. universe. However, I was blessed(cursed) with a personality that can draw people in as quickly as it can scare them away. No, I’m not crazy, I’m a Psychic and Medium. Yes, you read that right! If you are reading this and don’t know me, you have probably already formed an opinion of me. You may think that I’m an older woman, with large “jersey” hair and gypsy type clothing. Let me assure you though, this is far from me. My name is Nikki and I’m actually a mid thirties, fun loving chick who keeps the hair tamed down and wears skinny jeans and flip flops to readings. I talk to dead people, do paranormal investigations and angel cards. I read energy and will form an opinion on a person or place within minutes. I channel energy through me to help heal others… you know just your every day gal LOL.
Oh the joys of this gift… If i had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked “Isn’t it cool to know things that others don’t?”… ummmmm… Sometimes!? LMAO. Sure it’s cool to be able to help someone reconnect with their passed loved ones, it’s such a healing process for them It’s useful to be able to read a person quickly and decide that they are someone who isn’t going to cause anything but trouble for you. But these same abilities can become a burden… friends come to you looking for advice but freak out when you tell them things they don’t want to hear…. knowing when people are going to die, and the examples go on and on.
This blog is not meant to be a “Debbie Downer”! I want to share the good, the bad and the ugly about my psychic life. I’ll be sharing my WOWS and WOES! Stay tuned for one hell of a ride, my life really is a tumultuous energetic ride!
Stay classy & thanks for stopping by!
