How will I know if I am grounded or ungrounded?

Grounding or Earthing is all about the awareness that we are still in a physical body as well as endeavouring to become spiritual workers and beings.

Here you will find a list of ways in which being grounded helps us in our lives:

  • Brings life in to matter and to be able to bring our healing abilities into the physical.


  • Increases balance and stability in our physical and  emotional state.

  • Helps us to accept that we are here to fulfil a purpose

  • Brings strength

  • Helps in creating a bridge between Spirit and matter.

  • Provides an outlet making the release of energy easier.

  • Allows us to attain higher Spiritual levels.

Here is a list of some of the more common symptoms of being ungrounded. Usually each person tends to suffer  the same symptoms each time they are ungrounded. These could just be one or two symptoms, or even more.

  • Dizziness

  • Daydreaming

  • Feeling  'Spaced Out'

  • Feeling Sick

  • Heart Palpitations

  • Eyes Flickering

  • Weight gain

  • Clumsiness

  • Static shocks

  • Falling asleep when you are meditating

  • Sensitive to Noise and light

  • Forgetfulness

  • Having brilliant ideas that never happen

  • Arguing and unable to get your point across

** Please note that many of these symptoms can also be linked to physical conditions or illnesses, if in doubt always check with your GP. Light and energy work is complementary to general medicine and should not be viewed as a substitute

Tree Root Grounding

When working with energy of any kind, doing visualisation meditations or taking part in Open/Closed Circles it is VERY important to ground yourself beforehand. One of the easiest ways of doing this is here:

Imagine that your feet and toes are growing roots and these roots are growing down into the floor/ground beneath you. The roots grow very, very long and go down into the earth's core. As you visualise the earth's core notice the thick roots of trees which have been there for thousands of years and visualise your own roots twisting around them, entangling themselves among these very old roots and therefore 'grounding' you.

Also, do not forget to drink plenty of water after your meditation, Circle or healing session.

Mediums work with something which is called 'CERT'. Cert is what is used to provide evidence of life after death. By using CERT it helps the medium to stay focused and provide the sitter with 4 major elements to prove that their passed loved ones have not 'died' but only passed into another world...the world of spirit.

The four major elements when a medium gives a reading are:

C for Communicator

The communicator will be the Spirit that is communicating with the medium. This could be a relative or friend of the sitter. You need to get as much information from spirit, as to who they are. The medium should try to get their name, age, hair
and eye colour, build, height, skin colour etc. The more information you can provide, the more evidence you are giving to the sitter.

E is for Evidence

Once the identity has been established you need to provide evidence that the spirit is aware of past and present events in the sitters life. This evidence could include memories from the past, an event that is happening at the moment for the sitter, hobbies, mannerisms, idiosyncrasies, illness in the family and so on.

R is for Reason

This section covers the reason why the spirit is communicating. This can be to give support, to comfort a grieving relative or loved one, to provide upliftment to the sitter and to prove that the human personality continues after 'death'.

T is for Tie Up

This means tying the communication up and bringing all the elements together. The role of the medium is to provide the sitter with evidence that there is existence after death and that it is only the body which dies and not the spirit.

The above explanation of CERT is a re-worded version which was originally written by Stephen O'Brien, and as such remains the copyright of Stephen O'Brien.

Following these guidelines will help the medium to give a true and honest reading, which is accurate and provide proof that the 'message' brought through is definitely from the sitter's passed loved one.








An apport is something that spirit have caused to appear apparently out of 'thin air'. This may be a gift given to someone in a physical circle (see circles later on this page), or it may be anything that appears seemingly from nowhere - for example, keys that appear in a house but do not fit any locks; coins; stones etc. On one occasion in circle, a small piece of yellow Jasper appeared by my feet whilst we were in meditation. Usually an apport will be warm or hot to the touch when it first appears.




An aura is the energy field around everything. Even things that do not appear to be 'living' have auras. The aura can be photographed using a special method called Kirlean Photography. Semyon Kirlean discovered, in 1939, that when half a leaf was photographed using his special camera, the missing half of the leaf would appear. To find the edges of your aura, extend your hands outwards and then, with your palm turned inwards, slowly bring your hand back towards your body. If you do this slowly, you will feel a slight resistance (usually about a foot away, although this varies). This is the edge of your aura. The aura is often brightly coloured, although if you are ill or if you are feeling bad about something, the aura will not be so bright. If you feel uncomfortable because someone is 'invading your personal space' it is because their aura has touched or entered yours. When a medium works with those in spirit, he or she will allow communicators to 'step into' their aura, and this makes communication possible.



   Automatic Writing

Automatic writing is the term used when spirit communicate through writing. It differs from inspired writing in that spirit control the pen with automatic writing so that the handwriting (when this is done by an experienced medium) will be the same as the person's handwriting was when they were on the Earth. Many mediums who use this method will hold the pen in their left hand (if they are right-handed) or vice versa. It makes no difference how the pen is held - it is spirit who are doing the writing - not the medium.




Chakra is from the Sanskrit for 'wheel'. There are thousands of Chakras in our body but we tend to concentrate on the 7 main Chakras as they are the  main energy points of the body. For further information about the Chakras, click here.




Clairaudience means 'clear hearing' and refers to the ability to hear spirit. Most mediums hear spirit as a 'thought', in other words there is no physical voice, but they will often be able to distinguish an accent or vocal inflection. The worry of developing mediums is that what 'pops into their head' is them - their imagination, or what they expect the person to say. This is usually not the case and with experience it becomes easy to distinguish which is 'us' and which is spirit. Some mediums hear spirit physically; they will actually hear the voice of the communicator.




Clairsentience is the ability to sense spirit. This may be as a 'feeling' or it may be that the medium will smell a scent relative to the person communicating (for example, perfume or tobacco smoke). If you have ever entered a house and felt uncomfortable, only to discover that something tragic has happened there - or if you have sensed that a house is haunted, that is clairsentience.




Clairvoyance means 'clear seeing'. In many people the term 'clairvoyant' will conjur up an image of a fortune teller. This is by no means the case. It refers to the ability to see spirit. Some 'see' spirit in the mind's eye and some mediums can see spirit in a more physical form - either as a complete person, or a misty form or perhaps just a face.



   Development Circles


Open Circle  -  This is a development circle primarily for beginners. It is a circle that anyone can join - the number of sitters will vary from week to week. This is an ideal circle to join to get an idea of how spirit work.


Closed Circle  -  This is a development circle for more advanced mediums, who may or may not still be in training. To join a closed circle you must first be invited by the circle leader and there may be a trial period to make sure that you are right for the group. Strong commitment and dedication are required to sit in a closed circle, which has the same number of people every week and the same sitters each time.


Physical Circle  - This circle is primarily for the development of physical mediumship, such as trance, transfiguration and direct voice, to name but a few. Often this circle will be held in total darkness, although a small light may be used.


Spirit Rescue Circle  -  This circle is dedicated to the task of helping spirits who are 'stranded' - either because they are afraid to pass over, or because they do not realise they have died, or because something is holding them back from moving on into 'the light'. This circle requires a strong mind as the work can be emotionally and physically draining.


Healing Circle - A circle which will sit each week to send out remote healing to those in need.


   Direct Voice Mediumship

A form of physical mediumship, which occurs when spirit either use the voice box of the medium or creates a 'voice box' from ectoplasm. In either case, the voice that is heard will be the voice of the communicator. One of the most famous Direct Voice Mediums was Leslie Flint. His website, containing examples of Direct Voice communication, is here.






Ectoplasm is a substance produced from a physical medium, by spirit, and is pure energy. It can emanate from any orifice. Spirit can use the ectoplasm to create images - for example, a hand or a face.




   'Evil' Spirits

I do not believe that any spirit is 'evil' per se. Spirit comes from different levels - from the highest planes of existence in the world of spirit to the lowest (see 'Planes of Existence' below). The spirits that are considered to be 'evil' will always come from the lowest plane of existence and are mischievous and misguided. They are the hooligan element of spirit. These spirits often trick people into believing that they are talking to someone famous, or a relative or friend, if the person that is communicating with them is doing so for the wrong reasons, if they are dabbling in mediumship but do not understand or know what they are doing, or have been playing with a Ouija Board. If your work is carried out in love and light, and you raise your consciousness high, you need not worry - never forget that 'like attracts like'.




There are many different types of healing, but here are a few examples:

Spiritual Healing - This is the type of healing that is most likely to be carried out in a Spiritualist church (although some churches may offer a wide range of healing). The healer channels energies from spirit (they usually have a guide specifically for this work) which can be used to provide the healing as required. Spiritual healing can treat physical symptoms and ailments or it can be used to help a person who is low in spirits. Absent healing (or remote healing) works along the same principles, but the person is not present (obviously!). To find a Spiritual Healer in your locality, please visit the National Federation of Spiritual Healers website.


Crystal Healing - Crystals have their own energies and properties and these can be used to restore the right balance in our own energies. Each crystal has different properties, and is capable of treating different ailments, whether in mind, body or spirit.


Reiki - Reiki is the use of cosmic or universal energy, channeled through the healer to provide the necessary healing. There are many different types of Reiki, the most common being Usui.


Chakra Healing - Similar principle to crystal healing - and is used to restore the balance of the chakras. For individual Chakra healing, a crystal appropriate to the individual Chakra is used and is placed on the Chakra for 5 to 30 minutes. For complete Chakra healing, 7 clear quartz crystals are placed on the Chakras and left for the same amount of time.



   Inspired Writing

Inspired Writing could be compared to taking dictation, although it is more complex than that! The medium will feel the guide or spirit who wishes to write draw close to them and will be inspired to start writing.




Kundalini is energy and is often referred to as the coiled serpent that lives in the Base Chakra. As a medium/healer develops, the serpent will start to uncoil and rise up through the Chakras. It is imperative that this is not done too fast - the Kundalini can affect our physical bodies and if it is uncoiled too fast it can cause physical harm. Once the serpent has uncoiled, it will remain uncoiled. It is dangerous to dabble with the Kundalini unless you are completely certain that you know what you are doing.



   The Light The Light

Mediums may often refer to 'the light' - and may use phrases such as: 'passed to the light' or 'sending a lost spirit to the light'. In spiritualism the light is descriptive of the higher planes - or in essence, what we would refer to as 'heaven'. In many out of body experiences, people report seeing a bright, white light and say that they were floating towards it.



You may often hear a medium referring to 'linking with you' or 'making a link with you'. This refers to the connection that is created when you are visiting a medium or a church and one of your loved ones comes through to communicate via the medium. Once the medium has heard your voice, even if you only say 'hello', the link between you and your loved one in spirit becomes stronger. The medium is like the operator at a telephone exchange - the link (or message) is between you and your loved one, but they are relaying the message; and to do so a link is necessary.


   Ouija Boards

'Ouija' comes from the French and German for 'yes'. They usually consist of a board which has on it the letters of the alphabet, yes, no, and goodbye, and a pointer. It is NEVER a good idea to use a Ouija Board. Quite simply they are dangerous. To know what you are doing would require training as a medium - and if you are trained as a medium you would have no use for a Ouija Board! Although the results of using a Ouija Board may not be as dramatic as portrayed in some films, the results can often be catastrophic nonetheless. You are very likely to summon not 'dear old Auntie Mabel', but a mischievous spirit from the lower levels (see 'Evil' Spirits' above). It is rare to get a spirit from the higher levels through a Ouija Board - after all, why would they want to play games? Some people believe that if they are using a glass to point to the letters etc on the board they simply need to break the glass and the spirit will be gone. This is not the case. A sensible article concerning these issues can be read here.


7 Planes of Existence

There are seven planes of existence and each vibrates at a higher vibration than the one before it (see 'Vibration' below). Each level co-exists with the others, but most people are not aware of anything other than the first plane - the Earth plane.

Earth Plane - The most familiar! This is the plane on which we exist, and is the densest of all the planes.

Etheric Plane - When people 'die' their spirits will pass through this plane to reach the plane of existence where they belong. However, some spirits remain for quite some time in this plane, until they can accept their condition and move on - or to put it another way, until they are ready to accept 'the light'.

Astral Plane - This is the plane where the spirit who are most likely to make contact with a medium are situated.

Celestial Plane - This is the highest level of all and this is the plane where those we come to know as our guides and teachers exist.

The more spirit progress, and the longer they have been in the spirit world, the higher the plane in which they exist.



This is of the utmost importance. Before beginning any spiritual work, you should ask for protection. This may take the form of a prayer (the Lord's Prayer, for example) - or you might just call upon your guide(s) for protection. If you ask for protection you will be protected - it is just a matter of trust. Envisage a bright white (or blue) light flowing through you and around you, acting as a shield. This is also useful when you are going out and you know that you may encounter negative emotions, and because it acts like a shield, any negative emotion will 'bounce off'. Placing one arm across your solar plexus in an unpleasant encounter with another person is useful as extra protection - for emotion is often felt and absorbed through the Solar Plexus Chakra.



Psychometry is mediumship using an object; the person for whom the medium is reading does not have to be present when the reading takes place. Some mediums can psychically determine different things about a person from the object; others can link to spirit connected to the owner using the object. Psychometry is an especially useful method to use if they know the people for whom they are reading well.



Whether you believe in reincarnation is a matter of personal choice - the jury is still very much out on the subject and those with an opinion of reincarnation are divided. Those who believe in reincarnation hold the belief that we each return again to the Earth plane from spirit to learn a set of lessons in order to progress and advance in the spirit world. Some believe that we return to the Earth to set right past wrongs - the law of Karma (in the simplest terms 'what goes around, comes around'); for example, if you were wealthy and cruel you may return as someone who is very poor and the victim of cruelty. Many people have 'past life experiences' - they may get a feeling of deja vu when visiting a place they have never been before - or they may have dreams of people and places they do not know. Often they will have undergone Past Life Regression under hypnosis, from which many details may be given and verified - often with a high degree of accuracy. Those who do not believe in reincarnation account for 'past life experiences' as shared experiences with another member of their Soul Group (see 'Soul Group' below).  I myself, have been regressed back to former lives many times so have first hand experience of this and know that we do reincarnate.


   Soul Group

A soul group is the 'family' of souls to which we belong - although we do not necessarily inhabit the Earth plane at the same time as any other member of our Soul Group, it is to this group that we return when we pass to the spirit world. The Soul Group helps the returning member (soul) to review the life that they have lived and to reaclimatise to the spirit world.


   Spirit Guides

These are highly evolved spirits who have chosen to guide and help you as you progress through life. They are wise and loving, and will never let you down. Everyone has at least one spirit guide, whether they are 'into' spiritualism or not. They might otherwise be referred to as 'Guardian Angels'. Spirit Guides can change as you go through life - but some are with you throughout your life and have been with you since you were born. They are not all necessarily Chinese or Native American, for example, but I believe that it is down to the individual's perception. Spirit do not have a 'form' as such, and your guide will appear in the form that you will be most able to accept and understand. Therefore, if you expect to see a Native American, you probably will. Some were genuinely Native Americans in their previous lives, but others may simply choose that form because it is what is expected. Others do not identify themselves with any given form - do not 'show themselves' - but are there nonetheless as pure energy. They may be members of your Soul Group.

One of my guides, the first one I ever saw, appears to me as an orthodox Jewish man, dressed in the full 'garb'...long black coat, black hat, ringlets. Although I am now a Catholic, I was born into an 'ordinary' Jewish family and more often than not 'ordinary' Jews do not like the orthodox Jews because they have some very strange ways and customs and non-Jews tend to group all Jews together, so they are sadly frowned upon by the 'ordinary' Jews. I grew up disliking these people, something which I am ashamed of now, and I believe that my guide Rueben appears to me, not only to show that orthodox Jews are no different to ordinary Jews, or even anyone else for that matter, but also to remind me of my Jewish roots because I had 'turned my back' on the religion. Being Jewish isn't a religion as such, it is more a 'culture' and Rueben is here to remind me of that.



Trance Mediumship takes a long time to develop and takes patience and dedication. For trance to work, the medium has to mentally 'step aside' to allow the communicator (often a guide) to overlap him or her more closely. It will not work unless both parties are willing.


   Transfiguration Mediumship

Another form of physical mediumship. This is very interesting to witness, and is something which I myself have always wanted to witness, but as yet have not done so. It is a form of trance mediumship, except that in the case of Transfiguration the medium apparently takes on the appearance of the communicating spirit - either facially or the whole body. If a person wore a lot of rings, for example, then the rings will appear on the hands of the medium. If the person was very tall, or very short, the medium will become thus - equally, if the person had a beard or moustache, these will also appear on the face of the medium. Most spirit communicating this way do not have the ability to control the medium's vocal chords - it takes a lot of energy 'just' to appear in a recognisable form. These spirits are often able to mouth the words that they wish to speak. However, more experienced and advanced spirit (such as the medium's guide) are able to use the medium's vocal chords so that their communication may also be heard.



Everything vibrates. The higher the vibration, the less dense the object. Spirit vibrate at a higher level to us - so in order to communicate with spirit, they need to lower their vibration as we raise ours to meet somewhere in the middle. A good example of how vibration works in this respect is a bee flying. You can see the bee, but you cannot it's wings. This is because the wings are vibrating at a high rate to keep the bee aloft and this high rate of vibration cannot be perceived with the human eye. The higher we raise our consciousness (our vibration), the wiser and more pure the spirit communicator.


   Working with Spirit

To work with spirit as a medium or healer requires a lot of time, effort, dedication and self-discipline. It cannot be done in five minutes, and there are no shortcuts. Spirit will only work at the pace that is right for you. Two other important personality traits in developing mediums are humour and humility. It is possible to develop on your own, but it is a good idea to find a development circle - that way, any questions that you have can be answered, and you should receive the proper guidance in order to develop at the pace that is right for you. However, if you would prefer to develop on your own, there are some good online spiritual sites which have chatrooms where you can attend Circles and classes, one of them being our own, www.PebblesSpiritualCave.com.  If you wish to develop within a circle, it is well worth making enquiries at your local spiritualist church. A directory can be found on the Mystic Mouse website.
