1. Set boundaries and have an intention.
While many of the Spirits who you will meet on your Spiritual Path are of the Light – such as fully crossed over deceased loved ones, Angels, and Spirit Guides, not all of those who exist as a Soul in the ‘psychic’ Astral realm are for the highest intention or are out for your highest and greatest good. Just as humans have emotional and psychological baggage, so do those who have not yet crossed to the other side. There is a difference. Those who have ventured to the other side are in Spirit, those who have remained Earthbound are called ghosts. Thus, whenever you venture to communicate with those in the Astral realm, it is highly important to set a boundary or intention of who you wish to connect with and be surrounded by. It is crucial to create a sacred space before any healing having to do with human or ghostly clients.
An example intention is, “I am one with the Universe and all that is surrounded by Light & Love. I wish to communicate with those of unconditional love and the highest vibrational light for my greatest and highest good.”
You may feel the need to say a prayer or a affirmation! When working with those in the Astral realm or those who are stuck Earthbound, I always call upon my protector Spirit Guides and Angels to assist and surround me with loving and protective energy. When I make this request, I close my eyes and set my intentional boundaries.
Setting Boundaries with Human and ghostly clients: (Example) “In the name of the Father/Mother Creator, I ask Archangel Michael to stand to my Right. I ask Archangel Gabriel to stand to my Left. I ask Archangel Uriel to stand before me. I ask Archangel Raphael to stand behind me. I call upon the Shekinah to surround me, mind, body, and Spirit. I call upon Yeshua to be within my heart. I call upon Archangel Metatron, Archangel Azrael, Archangel Zadkiel, the Masters, my Guides, and my unseen Heavenly friends. I invoke the Holy Spirit now! And so it is! Amen.
‘The Light of Christ surrounds us, the Love of Christ enfolds us, the power of Christ protects us, the presence of Christ watches over us, where we are, Christ is present.’ (3xs)
2. Talk to the Earthbound Soul with compassion.
Next, take a moment to remember that the person you are speaking with was once a physical person. Someone who for some reason or another, hasn’t moved on. There is no need to yell, shout, or make anyone feel bad. Remember that they too, might feel very scared. In other words, do remember to have compassion when communicating because these Souls have been lied to somewhere along there own journey by Religion, beliefs, or Astral beings, keeping them from going into the Light of Pure Consciousness.
Talk to the Soul you sense, see, or hear, with words, either internally (within your mind) or externally, with your mouth. Tell them your name and what you are there to do. This person will hear you either way, and whether or not you hear anything back with your physical ears, do know that they can understand you. You might not hear anything, but rather, you might intuitively pick up on their feelings, emotions, or thoughts. You may even sense temperature changes, electricity, or see colors.
Since there is no such thing as time and space in the Astral world and the Universe, Souls can be “trapped” for hundreds or even thousands of years without realizing that any time has actually passed since their own death. Helping the Soul realize that it’s not 1822 anymore, can assist them to move forward, shift, and continue on their Soul journey, for their greatest and Most Highest Good. Sometimes, all this person may need to hear is that it’s 2017 or the current year, and that their loved ones are waiting for them on the other side. You may also need to remind the person that it is safe for them to cross, and nothing bad will happen to them, that Creator is forgiving, compassionate, and loving. This is the truth.
After telling the Soul what year it is, and letting them know their family is waiting for them on the other side, I often remind them that they are deceased and that it is time to cross over. Then, I visualize a temporary portal opening from the sky, inviting them to go into the Light. Remember, only men and women with a physical body have ‘freewill.’ Ghosts, elementals, demons, etc. do not have the free will to choose anything. These beings use man/woman’s free will for their own insidious purpose, and tempt that persons Spirit away from Source. These Energetic Eartly beings use man’s free will to choose, to feed off their ‘life force’ or to possess a physical body, so this is why it is crucial to extract them from the Earth plane. Anything in the Astral plane that causes a child of ‘Source’ to stray or to be possessed, will be extracted from the Earth by the Archangels with only two choices: either to come to into the light by themselves or by force. However, this is completed only by forgiving the lost Soul, elemental, alien, demon, etc. and surrounding them with unconditional Love.
Remember too, that in many cases, these Souls may have actually never been “trapped” but needed to do more healing work before moving on into the next chapter of their existence. It doesn’t matter why or what has been keeping them bound to the Earthly dimension. They might have been waiting to find someone like you to help them cross when they felt ready – or to assist you on your own journey and path of Spiritual Growth! Helping a Soul transition can be a very powerful experience.
Since many Spirits describe crossing over as an individualized experience that is created and manifested from the Spirit and Soul, itself, it is important to be able to tailor to the needs of these Souls. Some individuals have questions before they cross over, some have things they want to do first, or want to be assured about ~ such as knowing that their family will be alright or where their family even is. Although not all people die the same, everyone crosses over exactly the same way, or sees exactly the same beings when they choose to cross – They may see their loved ones, Mother Mary, Yeshua, the Angels, Spirit Guides, or Masters. Our transition path is as original as our birth into this world.
3. Call in their loved ones and Angels on the other side to assist.
Before ‘sending a Soul into the Light’, call upon Yeshua, Mother Mary, Master Guides, Angels, and any loved ones on the other side that would like to come and offer a hand to this Soul in making their transition into Spirit. Seeing and being greeted by these beings is usually so comforting, that the Soul is often more than willing to transition at that time. While this exchange is something that is possible to see and hear, it is also possible to witness and facilitate this interaction, simply by feeling the shift in energy. If you are not seeing or hearing anything, don’t be discouraged! Pay attention to anything you notice as you offer support.
If you are in need of extra support in assisting a Soul in crossing over, remember you have the support of Yeshua, Mother Mary, and the Angels! Archangel Azrael, whose name means, “whom God Helps,” is known as the Angel of Death, who assists with those who are dying and in death. Azrael can provide comfort to the dying and those who are grieving the loss of a loved one and help souls cross over to the other side. His energy is gently empowering, and tends to have a twinkling pale yellow light that he uses in his healing work. Remember to thank Archangel Azrael and the Divine for the assistance.
4. Close the Portal.
Once the Soul has been ‘released’ into the light, you can invite any other earthbound Souls who may be hanging around and interested in crossing over, to join this Soul into the light. Sometimes, others will see that the portal is open, and show up out of nowhere! They see the ‘porch lights on’ and feel safe and ready to cross.
Say the Last Rights for all Earth Bound Spirits crossing over into the Light:
“Oh Holy Host above, I call upon thee as a servant of Christ to sanctify our actions this day, in fulfillment of the will of God. I call upon Archangel Raphael, Master of the Air to make open the way. Let the fire of the Holy Spirit now descend that this being may be awakened to the world beyond! May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
And so it is! Amen.”
Once you have completed the Last Rights, it is essential to consciously close the doorway (to the temporary portal), and you can do this by verbally saying something along the lines of, “This healing is now whole and complete, in all dimensions of time and space, I now close the Portal and ask Archangel Michael to remove any residual energy that was left behind, or visualizing the portal of light closing. Setting the intention ‘seals’ the light portal and prevents any Souls who may have not yet fully crossed from coming back into the Earth plane.
While any well intentioned, conscious, and Spiritually awakened individual can attempt to “cross over Souls,” it is best done by a confident, Spiritual professional and it is not a game. You will meet Souls who are bound by Earthly things, materialism, and you will meet Souls who are bound by demonic energies. This is why it is crucial for you to invoke the Highest beings, especially Yeshua, Mother Mary, and Archangel Michael, in Spirit to assist you in any cases involving any Earthbound Souls, demons, or Astral beings.
