Advice: When Spirit Faces Appear Over the Faces of the Living

spiritfaceDear Kajama:

I recently went to see a medium and had the most amazing experience. She answered all my questions about my job, love life, etc., and she seemed spot on. Then she said that a spirit was coming through. She closed her eyes and while she was concentrating within, her face changed. I saw the face of another woman superimposed over her own! It was not someone I recognized. In fact, it was hard to make out because of the medium’s face showing through a bit. Then her face changed again! Several faces came and went, and finally I saw a face very much like my grandmother’s, and then the medium opened her eyes and brought through my grandmother from Spirit. I was just astounded. I left there so atwitter that I never asked the medium what had just happened, so I’m asking you. What in the world was this?

Dear Elaine:

My goodness, how exciting! You’ve found a medium capable of physical mediumship, in this day and age! After reading your question, I was left wondering if the medium knew what you had perceived. It’s possible that this doesn’t happen often, and that she was unaware of what you were seeing.

What you witnessed is called transfiguration; it’s a form of mediumship in which the medium temporarily takes on the appearance of the communicating spirit. Usually this happens only in the face, but the whole body can also be transformed. Please note that when I write transformed, I don’t mean that it literally appears that a different person is sitting before you; I mean that the face of another entity is superimposed over the face of the medium. I believe this sort of experience is more common than most folks might think, for one of the strangest experiences of my life involved something like what you describe, and I’m still not sure what to make of it.

Many years ago when I was a college student, I had a close friend named Charlie. Charlie was very Catholic, but otherwise, we were kindred spirits. We often discussed and debated spiritual matters, with me ever trying to pry open doors of possibility, and Charlie trying to close them. One night we had something of an argument. I don’t even recall what it was about now, but it seemed for a few hours that our friendship was ending. We wound up sitting across from each other in a fairly empty room with our backs against opposing walls, just staring silently at each other. It was very late at night and we were both tired. The only light came from an adjoining room, so it was fairly dim.

As I sat just gazing at him, I began to see his aura. This was nothing new to me, so I relaxed into the delicious dreamy state of seeing auras, when suddenly his face began to change. It was like a holographic face appeared on top of his; it was similar to his, yet different. At the same time I was seeing this, I could see Charlie’s real face beneath this image, and his expression was one of astonishment, as though he was experiencing something strange as well. In quick succession, different faces took form on top of his. It began with the face of an old woman, and then there were a few others, and then the face of what looked to me to be an imposing Spanish conquistador, and then finally a hippie with long hair, a beard, and gentle eyes.

We snapped out of it simultaneously and both started speaking at once. I stopped and let him go first. He said something like, Oh my God, you won’t believe what just happened. Your face just changed. First you were this craggy old woman, then you were [this and that] and then you became the Devil, and then you were Jesus Christ!

I was speechless for a moment, for it hit me that we had seen exactly the same thing: I had seen him become an old woman, and a Spanish conquistador (a man with a pointy beard who could easily be interpreted to be the devil if one was predisposed to interpreting this image this way), and a gentle bearded hippie (Jesus Christ). Our fight was immediately forgotten, and we were totally freaked out. At the time, we decided that we may have seen each other as we had been in past lives. (For the record, I am NOT suggesting that we assumed we had been the devil or Jesus, but that we had been people who resembled those figures.) I now no longer believe that to be true. After all, the images we saw were identical, so unless we were one person in those past lives, it doesn’t make sense. I now believe we were seeing spirits as they used our etheric energy to manifest visual images, either of themselves or of others, such as Jesus.

This was early on in my psychic life, and I had no frame of reference for this experience. It was later that I learned about transfiguration and other forms of physical mediumship, and this new knowledge validated that experience, for neither of us had ever heard of such a thing before. Apparently it is normal for many faces to appear in succession when a medium is allowing transfiguration to take place. I don’t know who the spirits were, or why we saw images of the devil and Jesus Christ. (I certainly didn’t get the feeling that the image I saw that resembled the so-called devil was actually anything other than a man with a pointy beard.) It feels to me like this experience was, however, related to all of our religious debates, which were really at the center of our relationship. Perhaps it was just a gift to keep our friendship intact, given that we were fighting when it occurred.

Transfiguration is much like mirror-gazing, wherein the faces of spirits can appear over your own as you gaze into a mirror. This practice was invented by the ancient Greeks, and has been explored by lots of spiritual folk throughout the ages. It is even currently being employed by modern healers as an effective tool in grief counseling.

To try mirror gazing for yourself:

  • First, ask for help from Spirit. Don’t leave the doorway open to just any spirit passing by. Set a clear conscious intention of connecting with spirits of love and light, or with a certain loved one in Spirit or your guides. (Guides tend to be more adept at such manifestations than your average afterlife dweller.)
  • Sit in front of a mirror in a darkened room. The best lighting is a candle or two that is placed behind you or off to the side.
  • Start by gazing into your own eyes. Your eyes will quickly begin to grow bleary, and your gaze will naturally soften. This is good. Don’t bring things back into focus, even though it may be hard to resist trying. Just stare at yourself with a soft gaze. The key is to be in a very relaxed, receptive state of mind.
  • Now you want to just watch what happens. You will likely begin to see changes taking place, and these changes will turn into faces. Try to just relax and OBSERVE. If any faces make you uncomfortable, call upon your guides and angels to help you bring through only pleasant images.

Like my experience with my friend Charlie, you can also try this with a friend. What’s really interesting is when you get at least three people together, for I’ve participated in such experiments, and it’s extra validating when more than one person sees the same thing.

While it’s fine to undertake such experiments out of curiosity, pursuing them with a sincere desire to connect with and understand the Divine nature of existence tends to yield a higher level of experience. (If you’re irreverent about it, your experience will match your vibration!) Grief counselors have noted remarkable results when such experiences are induced by or with the grieving. As they reconnect with their missing loved one, all their sorrow and pain seems to just spontaneously heal. For more information, I recommend you begin by exploring the books and research of Raymond Moody, who has made a new science of mirror gazing. There is also a great book on this phenomenon by Mark Macy entitled Spirit Faces: Truth About the Afterlife.

If you’re longing to be visited by someone in Spirit, you don’t have to wait around, hoping and wishing. Just as spirits can reach out to the living, we can reach out to spirits. Give it a try!

May exciting new doorways of possibility continue to open to you!

Amazing Story Contest for the Week of January 20, 2014

[title size=”2″]Lavender Roses[/title]
lavenderosesby Yvonne

My husband passed away in early November of this year after a brief illness. He was my best friend and soulmate. During the last ten days of his life, we were staying at a beautiful hospice. We had many visitors and several bouquets of lovely yellow roses, which were a family emblem.

During one of his moments of clarity, I asked him if he would let me know if he was okay after he passed over, and he said he would. We have both had a very strong spiritual connection over our 27 years together, and I truly believed.

The day after he died, I was feeling so desolate. My son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter had been with me for part of the day, and then I had left the house for a while. When I came back, sitting on the table was a beautiful bouquet of lavender roses and white snapdragons. My daughter had brought them in when I was out. The tag said that they were from a childhood friend of my son’s who could not attend the celebration of my husband’s life but wanted to show that he cared. He had said to my son, I hope she likes purple roses.

My tears flowed and a beautiful feeling of love and peace came over me. None of them could have known that the special love roses that my husband and I gave to each other over the years were lavender. For me, this was a loving message from my husband through my son’s friend to indeed let me know that he was okay.

Amazing Story Contest for the Week of January 13, 2014

[title size=”2″]Birthday Message from Departed Parents[/title]

birthdaygreetingby Rose

My mother and father, Mary and Frank, were wonderful people. They died within three days of each other after over 50 years of marriage. Their funeral was a lot like a wedding. Many friends and family who loved them celebrated their lives. I was the baby of four daughters. I miss my mom and dad very much, and was thinking of them on my birthday (12/13/13/) on my way home from work.

The song Thankful was playing on the radio when I was politely cut in front of by a car with a license plate that read ROSARY1. Naturally, I looked closer, because at first glance, I thought it said ROSEMARY, which is my given name. This was partly for my mom, Mary, who was a devout Catholic.

That’s when I saw, below the plate, a bumper sticker that read: I would rather be Praying at ST. FRANCIS XAVIER shrine in New Orleans. Francis was my dad’s given name, so on this car that moved in front of me on my birthday as I was missing my parents was my father’s name, Francis, and what at first glance appeared to be my name (Rosemary) and my mother’s name (Mary). I immediately had the feeling that this was both of them, sending me birthday wishes, and I was much comforted by that thought!

Don’t ever think your loved ones are gone, for they are always with you.
