NEW BOOK: “CAPTIVATED BY THE LIGHT: Evolution of a Medium”

Standard

My newest book is now available directly from me for $20, including postage. E-books are free. Just send me a request by e-mail: medium@mind.net. It’s also available on Amazon at a slightly higher cost.

Book Description:

When does a person begin to realize they are not just a body operating in a three-dimensional, material world? What multitude of influences converges to change our focus and cause us to cease looking for fulfillment outside of ourselves, and begin turning inward? Yogis call this shift in awareness an experience of “world weariness,” a time when we ask ourselves: Is this all there is?

For Jessica, the moment came quite unexpectedly when the “veil between the worlds” parted and she was illuminated by Spiritual Light for the first time. It’s difficult to describe the Light in human language, because words fail to reflect the brilliance of the colors and the way they vibrate with living energy. Nevertheless, readers of this book will gain greater understanding as to how we are all embodiments of the Light—and the need to manifest more of it in the world.

There is always the potential for redemption, forgiveness and healing. In this testament to the adaptability of the human spirit, Jessica writes with searing honesty of the early trauma that led her to spirituality, and her subsequent journey from darkness toward the Light. Readers will also enjoy her colorful stories about coming of age at the end of the beatnik era, her hitchhiking adventures, traveling with Swami Muktananda, studying with the faith healers of the Philippines, and developing her clairvoyant abilities.

WHAT IS A MEDIUM?

Mediums are, by definition, clairvoyant, or psychic. The information they receive from the spiritual dimension can cover a wide variety of issues and be related to the past, present, or future. If you could talk to God/Spirit/Your Higher Self, what would you ask?

Do you yearn for a message from a deceased loved one?

Do you suspect a past life is impacting you in the present?

Are you having health or emotional difficulties?

Is there a negative energy cord into one of your chakras?

Are you curious about possible spirit guides, or whether your Third Eye is open or closed and to what degree?

Mediumship is closely related to channeling. The terms channel and medium mean essentially the same thing, although some people believe channels give their bodies and consciousness over completely and allow spiritual beings to speak through them—whereas, mediums receive and transmit messages, while retaining conscious awareness of their human personality. Both channels and mediums enter into a trance state, which can be deep, light, or anywhere in between. Mediums have the ability to receive impressions from the spiritual dimensions, including hearing a spirit speak (clairaudience), seeing a vision (clairvoyance), smelling an unusual smell, or simply sensing something (clairsentience).

The spiritual gifts I’ve received allow me to see beyond the physical dimension, including the ability to view the human energy field—and also the inside of the physical body—for the purpose of identifying and helping to correct imbalance and “dis-ease.”

Similar to other mediums, I work with several spirit guides. Energy from these beings comes in through my crown chakra as a ray of radiant divine light, bringing with it information, often in the form of pictures, but sometimes as words or sensations. Often, I can tell which guide is speaking based on the color of the light reflected by the guide. Spirit guides protect and inspire human beings. They communicate with us during meditation and also during the dream state. They might be angels, archangels, ascended masters, saints, deceased family members, animals, and even extraterrestrials. Spirit guides provide advice and information, but they do not tell us what to do because they are not allowed to interfere with human free will.
