Psychic workshop helps participants get in touch with themselves 0
A two day Psychic Workshop hosted at Centennial Museum last weekend was sold out. Jackie Dennison of 'Rescue Mediums' fame and Steve Furlong of Feathers Academy in England assisted participants to get in touch with themselves in the physical, emotional and spiritual sense by recognizing and developing own psychic abilities.
Thirty-three people from across Simcoe County, Toronto, Brampton and farther viewed the weekend as a successful effort and went away certified after taking the workshop. Sharon Clarke from the Chatham area met Jackie Dennison when her bar - 'The Arlington' was featured on a segment of Rescue Mediums - it was a life changing experience for her.
"We learned there were several spirits there and the research about the building that we got to keep after was valuable information," said Clarke who is a tarot card reader.
"The investigation was an amazing for us and now this workshop has been very validating. For me the weekend has been all about practising with other people. If you trust and follow you can learn so much about yourself. I was very happy with the workshop."
Both talented clairvoyants coached participants in the topics of grounding, protection and opening of chakras, guided meditations, connecting with spirit guides, auras and working with energies. The weekend workshop included a 'Paranormal Investigation' on Saturday evening between 8 p.m. - midnight when the 33 participants were split into groups and taken to different areas of the museum. Some were scared and nervous at the thought of meeting the house spirit - Mr. Charles Beck.
The return to Penetanguishene for Dennison followed last spring's very successful paranormal investigation of Centennial Museum & Archives which was featured as the first 2011 episode of Rescue Mediums on OWN last July. Dennison says the ambiance of the venue became intensified while being used for the purpose of the workshop.
"The museum is the perfect place to hold this workshop as its spirited former owner still makes his presence felt," said Dennison.
"The aim of our workshop is to enlighten individuals who are interested in psychic development and how to use the psychic tool kit."
Participants learned how to properly ground, protect and to open and close Chakras. Meditation was a key part of psychic development and guided meditations are used throughout the workshops enabling students to connect with spirit guides as well as various psychic experiences.
"Sharing the knowledge of the psychic tool kit will allow students the opportunity to develop their sixth sense, helping to bring about a better understanding of their own psychic ability and the spirit world," said Dennison.
Most participants were in attendance mainly for their own reasons, whether expanding their knowledge , satisfying personal curiosity and questions or learning how to meditate, everyone went home with new knowledge about themselves and shared things about each other during the weekend.
A huge fan of Rescue Mediums, Malachi Sybex registered for the workshop when he heard Dennison would be in the area.
``I watch the show and had a friend who took the week-long workshop in the past so we wanted to take this one - it's been awesome," said Sybex who has a rare ability for finding four leaf clovers without even trying.
"I found my first four leaf clover three years ago and have found hundreds of them since. I just look down and see something and it's a four leaf clover. At first I believe it was my father who had passed away showing me but now I just see them."
Sybex says one time he found ten four leaf clovers at once and they some how just seem to make themselves visible to him.
"They show me where they are and it's just a matter of knowing the pattern and perception - they look different from the others," said Sybex.
"Under certain circumstances some people believe it is bad luck to find a four leaf clover while others think it is good luck. The biggest one yet I have found was 4 inches across."
One of the most interesting parts of the workshop took place on Sunday with the photography of auras. Each person had a picture taken of showing the different colour levels in their auras explaining as to what the colours meant and what type of person they were. This session was followed by instruction on how to see the auras of other people. Auras represent a person's energy and the energies can be worked with for healing and more. Before the photos, participants were asked to draw a picture earlier using different colours.
"Chakras change all the time as people react to emotion and feelings but the colours of the aura stay the same. You are very I tune with yourself if your aura colours are matching your drawing," said Dennison.
During the weekend participants received guided meditations and were shown how to open and close the Chakras, locking them to protect oneself. When the Chakras are open a person is more sensitive, but also more inviting to wandering spirits that see the light and are drawn to it.
Through Feathers Academy Dennison and her partner in the business Furlong, have been involved in similar workshops in Canada from which participants have come away satisfied and filled with knowledge. For more information visit: www.feathersmediums.co.uk.
