Diagnosing a Weak Spiritual Connection in a Séance

Why Isn’t my Deceased Loved One or Spirit Responding and Communicating with me?

Too Many Non-Believers

If a séance circle is composed of too many disbelievers, the séance will likely be an effective. This is because negative energy by far over radiates compared to positive energy. This means that it would take to believers for every one nonbeliever in order for a séance to have a chance of being effective. A nonbeliever would be classified as someone who does not believe in life after death, ghosts, séances and general, or mediums. Sometimes it is as simple as removing the disbelievers from the room and communication with the deceased loved one or spirit will ensue.

Deceased or Loved One is Not Able to Respond

Sometimes there are reasons why a spirit or deceased loved one may not be able to respond which are out of the control of the spirit or the séance. The only remedy in this scenario would be to retry at a later time. Even still, some spirits and deceased loved ones will simply not be able to be reached, ever. This does not mean anything bad… And it also does not mean anything good. The wide range of reasons as to why a spirit or loved one will not respond is simply so big in this case it is impossible to determine through a séance or by trying to logically diagnose the séance. It may be possible to determine why the deceased loved one is not responding by way of psychic reading, however, sometimes even that does not work.

Séance Ritual Structure Not Strong Enough

In some instances a spirit is not able to respond because the ritual structure of the séance itself is not strong enough. If a ritual is not strong enough, the séance will be dead (no pun intended). Using a larger candle, more sage, more believing participants, a better personal affect belonging to the deceased target, or more experienced medium or séance leader may be necessary. Experimentation will be the only way to determine if improving or increasing the séance structure and/or ingredients will result in an effective communication with the spirit.

Too Much Interference

There are all types of interference present in spiritual work (all throughout spell casting and witchcraft alike). Séances are a little different in that they involve actual interaction with an entity on the other side. That said, it is already hard enough trying to communicate with another spiritual plane of existence, but in modern times electronics and radio waves have made it even harder. One medium explained a situation by which communication with her deceased loved one was made weaker the more people who entered the room. Later, it was discovered that it wasn’t the addition of new people that made the connection worsen…instead it was the addition of more cell phones to the room. The bottom line here is that electronics and cell phones do not mix with spellcasting and seances. The only exception would be of course equipment used to record electronic voice phenomena (tape recorders, for example, to capture EVP) and similar video phenomena. Since most of this equipment operates on batteries and do not receive Wi-Fi or radio signals, they are mostly considered okay to use.

Loved One or Spirit Does Not WANT to Respond

There may be many reasons why a loved one or Spirit does not want to respond. If the spirit is choosing not to respond it could be because there is someone in the room which they have animosity or a grudge towards. There are many famous cases where a séance was conducted to try to determine who murdered a victim. Sometimes a medium suggests that the murderer could have been in the room…and just like in real life, how it can be hard for a victim to admit the perpetration in front of the perpetrator, these same emotions can bleed through to the spiritual realm too. Other times perhaps they are simply busy, as just because the spiritual realm does not operate based upon time does not mean spirits cannot be busy at the time we contact them in our world. There are obviously a plethora or of other reasons as to why a spirit may not wish to respond at the time a séance is conducted and usually that reason is never revealed or discovered.

Tip from a Medium: Remember, to know for sure why communication cannot be established, it may take multiple communication attempts (and this may mean multiple séances under different conditions and even with different participants).

After the Questions are Asked and the Spirit is Gone

The séance leader can now instruct the circle to open their eyes. The candle can be blown out and the incense can be extinguished. It is a good idea to conduct a small cleansing of the house with sage after a séance has been conducted. It is a good idea to burn a couple of protection candles that night as well. Some people like to repeat the protection phrases that were spoken when they lit the white candle and the sage. Other people decide to do full-blown protection and cleansing rituals after séance. No matter your preference some level of protection afterwards is always a good idea… Even something simple like a dream catcher can help eliminate any risk while your subconscious is at risk.

Final Words of Wisdom

Always be careful when going into a séance. Truly, it is very difficult to determine what type of communication will be established, if any, and whether or not it will have any evil intentions. Sometimes doing protection spells is not enough. Sometimes doing cleansing spells is not enough. And sometimes séances get very unlucky come across horrific daemons that latch onto souls causing uncontainable possession that will haunt a person for the rest of our lives. Although that may sound terribly scary, it is very rare… But still the risk remains true and no one should go into a séance as an amateur alone or under geared for the situation (both mentally and in ingredients). Be careful and always bring an expert or experienced medium with you! Never underestimate the spiritual plane and things that you do not know!

How to Contact a Deceased Loved One

How to Contact the Dead, Someone Close to You

how-to-contact-the-dead

Almost all of us have lost someone and understand what it is like to wish to speak to them again. We’ve also seen movies and TV shows in popular Hollywood films which depict the ability to reach out to the dead…communicate with them and receive messages from the other side. A lot of people wonder, “Is it true? Can I contact a lost relative? Will they respond to me from beyond the grave?” The basic answer here is yes, absolutely! But the more complex answer involves a technique…as most of the time it requires some sort of precision conjuration type of equipment (a Ouija board is the most basic form of spiritual communication in modern times), or an expert medium. A medium is a person with special spiritual ability to reach out and contact someone who has passed away. Typically the medium will allow their body to become a channel for the deceased loved one to speak. These types of rituals (that is contacting the dead and asking for a response) are usually referred to as “séances.”

Séances have been played up heavily in Hollywood, but truthfully they should be… As they are very played up in real life as well. A real séance requires power, the type of power that comes in numbers. For this reason, it is very common to find more than one person conducting a séance together… In fact, many times in involves a room full of people. Some of the people partaking in a séance may believe in some may not. A séance is far more powerful and more likely to be effective when it is performed at night, with more than one person, with someone in the room who has a direct connection to the person being contacted from beyond the grave, when the participants are believers in the séance and the life after death, and finally when the séance leader is experienced. It is not a requirement that the séance leader or any participant be a medium, however, it is most certainly a plus and will make the experience more fluid for the spirit involved if a medium is present and willing to participate.

Are Séances Dangerous? Is Contacting The Dead Safe?

In general séances are automatically assumed to be dangerous and quite unsafe. This is without a doubt because of the fear of invoking an evil spirit by accident, letting a evil spirit into the circle by accident, or becoming possessed. All of these fears are reasonable and they are very possible liabilities. Contacting the dead is never 100% guaranteed to be safe. There is always some risk when reaching out to the other side. A practitioner or séance can take all of the proper precautions and still end up dealing with an evil spirit or unwanted energy. There is also no guarantee that the séance or attempt to contact the deceased loved one will be successful at any time. This is why séances often last hours and only result in a few moments of actual contact with the desired target.

How To Perform A Séance As Safely As Possible

Although there are many different ways to conduct a séance, some of the most common methods may seem more basic in nature, but the reason they are most commonly used is because of their effectiveness. In fact, it is thought that the more basic a séance ritual…the greater the focus and concentration on the actual communication with the deceased loved one – and thus the higher likelihood of communication being successful. This is a basic séance routine with the necessary protective precautions to reduce the likelihood of an evil spirit, negative energy or other possession resulting from the séance.

Ingredients:

  • (1) Willing Participants (the more believers the better)
  • (1) White Candle
  • (1) Sage Incense
  • (1) Photograph or personal affect (belonging to or important to the deceased loved one)

How to Perform the Seance

To begin the séance, dim the lights and form a circle. Join hands and close your eyes. The séance leader (whoever you have chosen) will now need to ask for total silence and concentration. The séance leader should ask the circle to focus their thoughts on the deceased loved one. After a few moments have passed, séance leader will ask the circle to open their eyes.

While lighting the white candle one person shall speak “I light this candle in the name of _SPEAK THE NAME OF THE DECEASED_, come to us and join us in this friendly circle of ours. Come to us now.”

While lighting the sage incense, another person shall speak “I light this sage in the name of all that is good and to dispel the energies of any wandering evil that may be lurking in the shadows.”

The séance leader will now instruct the circle to close their eyes once again (everyone except for the leader, who must watch the candle). Everyone should once more join hands while everyone chants “Come to us _NAME OF DECEASED_, we invite you into our circle, a friendly place for you to be.” This may need to be repeated several times and it is up to the séance leader to detect a change in the flicker of the flame or the trail of incense smoke. After an anomaly is detected in the flame or in incense, the séance leader must ask if the deceased is present with the circle. This question may need to be repeated several times before and answer is noticeable, detected or obvious.

After contact has been established and it is certain that the correct spirit is in and with the circle, questions may be asked. Is important to only ask the spirit one question at a time…it is important not to overwhelm the spirit. Remember communication across the plains is not easy, it isn’t easy for us and it isn’t easy for the spirit either. Speak slowly, clearly and with intent. Only one person should speak at a time. It is customary to allow up to 30 seconds for the deceased loved one to respond.

Sometimes a spirit will be lost mid-communication, or somewhere throughout the séance ritual. If this happens the deceased loved one will simply stop responding and no more questions shall be answered. This is commonly misperceived “as having offended the spirit,” however, this is usually not the case. Sometimes the communication connection can simply be too weak. There are a lot of things that can create weak communications in séances and when contacting the dead. Let’s go over some of them.

Had a Deceased Family Member Visit Me

grandmother-ghost-visited-me

Tonight my dead grandmother paid me a visit in the middle of the night. I just woke up, 25 minutes ago, and found her apparition standing solid in the middle of my room, with her arms extended towards me and open. She was not scary, but very comforting and a very happy image of her. I was very excited and she looked to be in her best, how I remember her when she was really healthy. She was wearing her favorite red dress, and had a hat on that I remember her wearing one day when we all did a walk in the park when I was very young, I loved that day. I think that was the first spell I ever cast, but I was too young to understand what we were doing. My mother doesn’t remember that day like I do, however, I believe we were casting a fertility spell for my little brother who was born shortly after…we then were having to hide our Wiccan practices and beliefs for many years until way later in life. Anyway, that day was a magickal day…and she looked JUST LIKE THAT DAY! But when I stood up to go to her, her visual apparition faded away very quickly. I was absolutely awake and immediately called my mother afterwards, who said she too just saw her tonight. This is not the first time that we have seen her, or other people who have crossed over (what I believe to be) relatives in my family. We have a history of being able to contact the dead and contact the other side. People often come to us (friends and others) to have us perform and conduct seances. Just like they ask us to do love spells. My mother and I are really good at this kind of thing and work together as a team. We have been burning candles and chanting chants to contact the deceased, my grandmother included in the list of people we regularly reach out to, so it is no surprise to me to see her. I will try to conduct a seance tonight and see if I can get her to communicate. I believe that we will reach communication with her soon, especially given all the interaction we have been having from her.

I am going to get back to sleep now, but wanted to log this journal entry while it was fresh in my mind.

Good Night World And Blessed Be!
