The spirit world, independent from the natural world, is a world inhabited by human souls after they have passed on.Although it is separate from the world that we live in, the spirit world is in constant interaction with us, and through mediumship we are able to consciously communicate with those on the other side. The departed souls coexist with us but the world is vibrating at such a high frequency we are unable to see it, and these vibrations are the only thing that separates us.
Our souls are deeply connected with the spirit world which is something our ancestors have known for many thousands of years. Events in our lives such as loss or traumatic experiences can damage our soul in a way that changes who we are making us feel like we have lost a part of ourselves. Because our souls and the spirit world are so closely connected we can use the spirit world to help piece back the damaged pieces of our soul. This process is called shamanic healing and uses a mediator between the physical world and the spirit world, this person is called a shaman. The shaman travels in to the spirit world with the help of their spirit guides or power animals, their aim is to try and find the cause of the soul’s pain or illness. When they know the cause they can then search the spirit world for something to help heal the soul, this can be knowledge or a deeper understanding of the person, medicine, power or even parts of the lost soul itself.

If you have been following our blog post series on Angels, you will have seen us take you on a guided tour through the different types and classifications of Angels across the entire spectrum of spiritual beings. Now, we are going to take a look at some of the individual Angels within those “categories” to give you more of an insight into their characteristics and key traits;
The Angel we are looking at today is one that we are sure you will no doubt be familiar with, by name at least, yes, we are talking about Archangel Gabriel, or Angel Gabriel as he is perhaps more commonly referred to.
Archangel Gabriel is possibly the most well-known of all Angels, which is unsurprising given that alongside Archangel Michael, he is one of the only two Angels whom are mentioned by name in the Bible. Gabriel was the angel whom appeared to the Virgin Mary to foretell the birth of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. Most people know the story of an Angel appearing to Mary, however not everyone knows that it was Gabriel. He also appeared to Zechariah to foretell the birth of John the Baptist, but his first mention in the Bible is in the Old Testament, where he appears to the prophet Daniel, to explain the visions he has experienced.

Do you live your life avoiding walking over cracks in the pavement or walking under ladders? How about searching for the second magpie after seeing just the one or wanting to cry for breaking a mirror? Well if so, you’re not alone or crazy! Having a superstition is common amongst us all wherever we are in the world and we all try to avoid doing certain things…just in case! Did you know that there’s not one, or two, but three Friday 13th’s this year, tomorrow being one of them? And they say everything happens in threes! Superstition dates back to early Ancient times and have somehow been passed on over centuries and generations. Here are some of the more common and our favourite superstitions…
Walking under ladders is probably one of the most established forms of superstition, but why do we go out of way to avoid it? Well, it originates back to the early Christian teachings, where an object that has three points, represents the Holy Trinity, which is the case when a ladder is leaning against the wall.They believed that, if you were to walk under a ladder, then you would have been labelled as being a witch and in the same league as the Devil, something we don’t want! Breaking a mirror is said to give you seven years bad luck. We all know that when we look into a mirror, we see our reflection; therefore, if the mirror was to break, it doesn’t just shatter our reflection but our soul too. Throwing salt over your left shoulder should be immediate, if any has been spilt, in order to keep the devil away. Remember, the left shoulder is supposedly where the devil sits.We’ve all been told not to open an umbrella indoors, but what is the big problem with doing it? The Ancient Egyptians used umbrellas for the opposite reason to how we use them now. They were simply for sun protection and the Egyptians feared that they would be punished with bad luck by the sun God – Ra if they were to be opened indoors. Have you even been shouted at for putting shoes on a table? Did you just think it was because you would leave marks or make the table dirty? How about this for a superstitious myth…putting shoes on a table is a resemblance of death? Miners work boots were placed on a table of their family as a symbol to say they have died. Also, back in the day when criminals were hanged, the table represents the final platform before being suspended. Cross your fingers when passing someone on the stairs to avoid any bad luck and remember to salute a magpie if you see one. Not all superstitions are bad!There are a fair few lucky ones too… (more…)
