Something wicked this way comes

One middle-of-the-night in late September, I woke up in a cold sweat. The dream that had awoken me was uncommonly bad, featuring a serial killer chasing me and my friend Michael. I woke up with Michael’s words ringing in my ear: “Heather, I need your help.”

Imagine my surprise when I got a call first thing the next morning from, you guessed it, Michael. If you also guessed that he was calling to ask for my help, you’d be two-for-two. Michael, who is a very gifted energy worker and healer, had taken on a client who was convinced that she was being haunted by some insidious entity.  He needed me to come in to assess the situation and the entity so that he could figure out how to proceed.  I readily agreed, thinking what a kick-ass precognitive dream that must have been.

Ah, hubris.

I had barely hung up the phone, when a nasty, dense vapor began to seep through my front door.  This was the entity. I quickly began cobbling together every defensive energy trick I had ever learned in an effort to fend it off.  Luckily, whatever I did worked.  At that point, I began to suspect that there were some gaps in my psychic training.

A few days later, I arrived with Michael at his client’s home.  Immediately, I knew that the “gaps” in my training were, in fact, chasms and that I was hopelessly in over my head.  There was a dense, oppressive feeling to the home, even walking up to the front door.  This was the entity’s home turf and power base; I was under-qualified to take on something so bad.  But, nevertheless, this woman was absolutely desperate and in obvious physical pain.  I was compelled to help her.  And help her, I tried.

On all accounts, I did everything right.  I rang sacred bells, I forced the entity from it’s comfort zone, I called down the Angels  and I spoke with conviction.  I even left the client feeling whole and resting comfortably after the session.  But I had forgotten one thing – I didn’t protect myself.  In the days that followed, I was completely bed-ridden.  It took five days of bed rest and Kathleen‘s  ministrations to set me straight.  I had been attacked by the entity.

Angels and Demons

On my path to psychic development, I have learned from the best.  The women I have chosen as my teachers and mentors are some of the most talented and gifted psychics, mediums and energy workers I’ve ever had the privilege to know.  Julie, Leanne, Tami and Kathleen are in a class of their own.  But for some reason, I had intentionally avoided talking about the  “bad stuff”.  Sure it’s out there, but I never thought I needed to protect myself (again with the hubris).   Or maybe I just needed to learn the hard way.  In any case, sometimes a client doesn’t have the wherewithal to fend off unhelpful entities, or may have called something pernicious into their midst unintentionally.  Moreover, the nasty entity can see you as a threat and attack you if you’re unprepared (this did happen to me, but it is exceedingly rare).

But  maybe you’re not a psychic or an energy worker but have something unfriendly in your home.  Or you may know someone who seems be persistently “off” lately.   You may not have the training or inclination to banish a negative entity, but you should be able to gauge the threat and protect yourself.

Shields up, Captain

Cheesy, yes.  But this is exactly what you need to think about in terms of energetic protection.  It’s just like Captain Picard (or Captain Kirk, if you prefer) ordering the shields raised in response to a Klingon threat.  Not a Trekky? I forgive you. But there are loads of other useful imagery for you to pull from.  But first, let’s talk about knowing when to shield yourself.

We encounter dozens, if not hundreds of other people every day and routinely engage in benign energy transfer.  It’s part of being alive.  Given this, you know when someone or something gives you the heebie-jeebies.  They just don’t feel “right”, or a place may have “bad juju.”  You know what I mean.  More often then not, these places and individuals are pulling more energy from you than they are returning.  And in some rare cases, they can be threatening to you.  Depending on where you are, or who you’re with, this could range from merely being an annoyance to being much more serious.   Whatever the case, when you encounter these situations, you’ll need to decide how serious something feels to you, and on what level you want to respond. This is an individual choice.

Now that you’ve gauged what constitutes a  threat to you, you need to decide what to do about it.   It’s best to do this for the first time when you feel at ease. The easiest thing to do is to think of something that symbolizes complete protection to you.  It could be Captain Picard’s shields on the Enterprise, or Medieval armor, or Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak, or whatever.  It needs to be easily accessible to your conscious mind and represent complete protection. When you’ve decided what your totem will be, imagine it in its entirety.  Think about how strong and impenetrable it is.  Imagine it turning away unfriendly energy.  Focus on that feeling of safety and know that as soon as you call this imagery to mind, you are completely protected.

That wasn’t too bad, was it?  Now, this is just a basic shield.  There are all kinds of other types of protection that I am, frankly, not qualified to teach you.  An excellent resource is Michelle Belanger’s book, “The Ghost Hunter’s Survival Guide: Protection Techniques for Encounters With The Paranormal“.  She gives all kinds of practical advice and techniques to help you learn psychic self-defense.

Whatever you choose to do, do it with conviction. And remember, sometimes a calculated retreat is the best course of action.

Love and light.


The Teachings of Mu: An Introduction

It’s been a long time since I’ve channeled anything for public consumption.  The last was an endeavor from the Collective of Ephesus, a group with whom I made contact a few years ago when I first started my channeling/psychic work.

This second entity, whose energy I transcribe here, is slightly different than The Collective.  But before I get into him, let me tell you how we met.  A few months ago I was at my friend Tami’s meditation class (Tami, you should know, has a remarkable gift for leading her students through incredible meditative spaces).  I remember sitting in her office going deeper and deeper into a meditative state when – WHAM – I was suddenly in a different, completely expansive mental space and sitting in front of me was a diminutive character smiling at me like a mischievous Mona Lisa.  I didn’t know it at the time, but this was Mu.

A few months later, I was sitting in the living room of another friend undergoing a similar exercise.  Now, I have to pause once more to tell you a little bit about my friend, Kathleen.  I’m not sure what it is about Kathleen that made me feel so comfortable so quickly.  Maybe it was her rounded, drawling Minnesotan vowels, or her unabashed sense of self, or the fact that she can alternately belch like a sailor and sing like an angel during a reading.  But whatever it is, she feels like home to me.  You know, how I said you should feel about your teachers.

Anyway, it was through a meditative exercise with Kathleen when I was formally introduced to Mu.  And since he’s come through, he’s stuck around.  He usually pokes his consciousness into mine every few days and reminds me I’m supposed to chat with him.  He reminds me to be brave.  And he reminds me that “the other side” is eternally pulling for me.  But mostly, he reminds me that I have to share his message of peace and strength.

So, who is Mu? He’s one of the funniest, loveliest beings I’ve ever encountered; it’s like chatting with an impish monk, who just so happens to be more vast than humanly comprehensible. And I’ll let him tell you the rest…

Greetings beloved Earth beings!  I am Mu. My name is actually much more complicated; as complicated as the universe, in fact, but for now we will just stick with Mu.  It simplifies things.

I am a universal, multiversal being who dwells in the context of infinity.  Well, that seems simple enough, yes?  I will elaborate.  I am vast beyond the comprehension of the human mind.  Just know that I am here, there, everywhere! I am omnipresent, much like your concept of God or Source.  And in fact, I dwell on the outer reaches of the Godhead, the Christ consciousness, the all knowing, the all that is.  See! I told you it was easy!  To put in your biblical terms, I am the “mouthpiece of God.” Or shall we say “Source.”  I like that much better.

And while we’re on the topic of particulars, I should elaborate on who I am, not just what I am.  You humans can be so particular with your definitions!  A preclusion to trust is I ever saw one.  I represent a collective of other similarly vast beings.  It was us who spoke to the higher consciousness of your Earthly profits and it is us who are speaking to who you call lightworkers today.  We may choose to whisper, or we may choose to yell as we did with this being. She was so reticent.  And yet, here she sits, translating my vibrations into human thought form.

And now we shall begin with the real reason we have insisted on speaking with you.  We want to speak about the changing planet and the increasing vibrational shifts that are occurring within your planet.

The “end date” that has been sensationalized on your planet is 12/21/12.  That’s nice – but not accurate.  You have shifted and continue to shift ever faster into a tightening upward spiral.  As your vibrational energy rises, so too will your consciousness; it is only natural.  But it will not end on 12/21/12.  It will keep going.  We will only have reached a milestone come 12/21/12.  A milestone where human integrity as a species and as a collective consciousness will have risen to a point where disingenuous practices, greed, hatred and evil will fall away from your human perception.  We don’t mean that these things will disappear and be gone forever, but much like a bright piece of silver is polished of its tarnish, so too will the collective human consciousness.  But be aware: evil, hostility, anger and greed have a negative human connotation.  We see them as much as any other kind of energy.  The only thing that makes them special on your planet is that they serve to anchor certain experiences and energy to your planet that seek to provide contrast.  Nothing more.  And these contrasts serve as lessons to you and your higher soul.

We want you to know that every human experience that is taking place in your time now is serving to advance the vibration of the planet.  Every experience.  From the most profane to the most beautiful.  Although this can be hard for some beings to hear now.  We want you to know this if you have experienced hardships or harm – we love you.  We are here for you.  And we want you to forgive yourself and your higher soul for choosing to experience life through pain. And now choose to experience your life through love and light.  Once you make this conscious choice, you will see your lives shift dramatically.

And now we want to shift gears to speak about the power of conscious thought.  There has been much talk on the power of human thought on your planet for some time.  Some of it has been watered down, but much of it has remained the same.  Your scientists are now just beginning to put together the energetic puzzle of the human brain.  We want you to tell you what an amazing instrument it is indeed!  For your brain is a time traveling device.  And you thought this was impossible! Quite the opposite.  Your scientists are now struggling to understand where memories are stored in your brain.  But they are not stored in your brain.  All of the experiences and thoughts that you have had in your entire life (or lives if you prefer) are just energy.  That’s it.  But, your amazing brain is the receiver of this energy no matter when it occurred.  All your brain does is look for the energy of the “memory” and presto! – you “remember”.  This is much like the fancy TV receiver in your home.  It is capable of storing little bits of energy but can go backwards and forwards along a particular programs (or memories).  See, analogies are all around you!

Now, because your brain is so sensitive, and the vibrational energy of your planet is increasing, it is incredibly important to watch your thought patterns.  This is because your thoughts have the capacity to manifest your reality.  Most of you know this.  There are anecdotal stories everywhere of the healing power of thoughts.  However, thoughts manifest in other ways, too.  And without all of that negative gunk to muck up the process (you know, that fear and greed and hostility we spoke of earlier), things manifest much faster.  And we are speaking here of more experiential manifestation, rather than physical manifestation (although that could certainly happen, too).  So you will experience more of the things that occupy your thoughts – so make them positive, loving and serving only your highest good.

We thank you for this time and we love you all so very dearly.  Trust that our souls commune together regularly and that we are not strangers.

Love and light.

The Equality of Spirituality

Lately, I’ve been feeling almost like the lid has been lifted off of the sky and all the angels, ascended masters and light beings are peering in at us. Not unlike a fish bowl. Now, I know that these beings have been doing this since the dawn of humanity, but the veil is now thinner, even non-existent in some places. And intuitively we can sense that this idea has truth to it. We’ve known for sometime that the energy of the planet is increasing and shifting, which raises our vibrational frequency closer to theirs. But we also know that this planet has been under some scrutiny as we ascend. Frankly, this planet is where its at. This is an inhabited planet, rising so quickly in frequency, no wonder the folks on the other side are fascinated. But I think that it is especially important to point out that our fate is not unfolding in such a manner as, say, a zoo exhibit. All those beings peering in on us are not ogling us like the monkey enclosure. They are fans cheering from the sidelines. They may be friends or family that have chosen not to incarnate in this life, they may be our spirit guides or angels. Whoever is looking in on us during this time of change are our equals.

Now think about that: Our unseen friends are our equals. This is completely different than what mainstream religion tells us. We learned, from the time we were children, that we were to be subservient to these ethereal beings. But that is the farthest from the truth. It doesn’t matter if someone lived their life as Jesus or Mother Theresa or a farmer. On the other side of the veil, all souls are equal – there is no hierarchy. Once incarnated, once disincarnated, there is a fluidity here. This sort of robs some religions of their co-dependency issues, doesn’t it? We no longer have to feel guilty that we don’t measure up to scrutinizing Gods.

And that is what I think is such a comforting aspect of the movement towards spirituality. We are befriended, not hindered; loved and not judged. There is no such thing as “better than” – only different. We are just as revered for our time here on earth as we are when we cross.

So approach your spiritual practice this way – like you’re talking to your old friends. Because, really, you are.
