DEAR BONNIE: Recently, I have been trying to raise my vibration to become more aware of the spiritual world. The other day something at work kind of freaked me out. I work in a grocery store, and as I was casually walking with a co-worker, not really paying attention to anything, but half listening to my co-worker as we were walking a customer who was pushing a cart down an aisle to my right, and I caught a glimpse of a jack russell dog standing in her cart. I had this vision in my peripheral vision and when I blinked the vision of the dog was gone. I keep wondering if I was supposed to tell the lady pushing the cart what I had seen and to let her know her dog was still with her. I feel like I am reliving the moment over and over because I did not complete my task. What do I do now? This was a random customer whom I may never see again. This has never happened to me before, and I am trying to convince myself that my mind was not playing tricks on me. I feel like I need to let this lady know but may never have the chance. It was just a flash, a blink and then it was gone … What do I do? — Beth
DEAR BETH: I am so glad you are trying to raise your vibration to the spirit world and with that comes great responsibility when working with the spirit world. Seeing is called clairvoyance, the ability to see people, places, things, objects, and yes, animals also. Seeing outside of the mind is called objective seeing and that’s what happened to you. Subjective seeing is when you see everything but with your third eye which is right between the brows. This way of seeing is in your mind’s eye and is within.
As you continue to connect even more to the spiritual world you will open yourself up to new experiences. I would study all there is to know about your psychic abilities, how they work, and how and why they happen so that next time something out of the ordinary happens you will know what is happening and trust what you are seeing, hearing, or feeling.
As for what you should have done with the lady and her dog is up to you and your good judgment. I know when psychics or mediums begin their practice some can be eager to share everything they see or hear from the spirit world, but you need to be respectful to the spirit world and innocent people that might believe or might not.
If it were me, I might have gone over and said “hi” to the woman pushing the carriage and asked her if she was open to me sharing with her what I had just seen. Her beloved Jack Russell might have just passed to the spirit world, and it might be a tender moment or one that she might not be able to hear about while shopping for groceries. Ask first, I would ask always.
“May I share with you what I just saw around you?” Tell her, it is nothing scary. Then let her make the decision for herself. She might get a feeling that she can trust you. If she says yes, you might start off by asking a question, “Did you or do you have a Jack Russell?” If she says yes, then you can continue with the conversation. Always make sure you are on the right track.
When we are just opening up to the spirit world, we are so excited to share everything with everyone, but some people might not be ready. On the other hand, the lady in the store might have been elated to hear that her dog is still very much with her and helping her to do her errands. Do not worry if you do not see this lady again there will probably be a next time, and you will know how to handle the situation better. Have permission to share, be gentle, and be of service because it is such a gift to give someone but only if they are open to receiving it. Keep taking classes and learning.
