Talking with Thomas Podcast
Welcome to our podcast series of Talking With Thomas. Thomas is a beautiful Spirit Guide who speaks through Maddie Brownne, an unconscious channel. Maddie has been channeling Thomas and other spiritual beings since 2014. Being an unconscious channel means that Maddie has no knowledge or awareness of what the Guides are saying. She prefers to journey and allow Thomas to speak through her so she does not have any influence or memory of what is being said. The messages are therefore purely from Spirit.
In these podcast discussions with Thomas we will be exploring the many common, and not so common, spiritual questions people tend to ask a spirit guide. Some of the topics we cover in Talking with Thomas are: Spirituality, the light within, awakening, the Oneness, the relationship between ego and soul, life purpose, types of spiritual guides and beings, connecting with your guides, healing, reincarnation, time and space, the dimensions, mother nature and her elements, manifesting, moving from 3D to 5D, portals, the transition, hollow earth, creating a new earth and more. Stay tuned as we will be adding conversations on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact us and let us know if there are any topics you wish to hear Thomas speak about.
Hi I am Alison, I am Steve, and I am Maddie. Welcome to our Talking with Thomas Podcast. We’re so glad you're here.
Steve: I met Maddie back in 2014, April, and you had come to me for a past life regression and towards the end of it as I was jotting down some notes, because I always take a lot of notes when doing a past life regression to give to the person, and I just noticed that the content of what you were saying changed and I looked up at you and you said, Hi I’m Thomas, I’m a Spirit Guide. And that was kind fo surprising. (Laughter) And so I I ended up asking Thomas some spiritual questions that day but we ended up meeting once a month for about an hour and a half and I would ask every spiritual question I could think of and it was just so much fun. So when I got to know Alison and we started doing groups together I thought why not involved Thomas in these groups and then other people could ask Thomas spiritual questions just like I do because I was enjoying it so much and then Alison was enjoying it and asking him questions and stuff and so it has grown from there. When have done all these groups and now we’re doing these podcasts. So Maddie, do you want to talk about any of the journeys you go on when you channel and what that is like? And how while Thomas is out here talking with us and answering our questions?
Maddie: For the most part the journeys themselves when I come back they fade really quickly. I remember one where I was riding a pegasus and we were doing a tour of planets and not just in this galaxy but in all of them. I always come back from my journeys feeling very wonderful. Very strong, very loved, like I’ve been in a wonderful place.
S: The interesting thing about the way you channel is that you are an unconscious channel and you have no idea of what we’ve talked about. Even that first day when Thomas was talking to me, you didn’t remember, I told you what happened. It’s interesting that way and its also very beneficial because it keeps your ego for being involved in any way or influencing what Thomas is saying. So in that way it is very pure.
M: I’m never sure if he actually shows up even. (Laughter)
S: Right, because the first few times you asked us that. When you came back you said, did he show up? (laughter) and we’d been talking to him for about an hour or more.
M: And I used to be terrified that I’d be sitting there for an hour with everyone staring at me and nothing happened (laughter).
S: That has never happened. He always shows up.
Alison: I wasn’t so sure when I first met you. I had never met an unconscious channel before. Steve introduced me to you at one of our first trainings when Steve brought you in. I had talked with channelers before but they were always conscious or partially conscious. So it was different. I’ve grown to know you over the years and trust you and trust Thomas and it’s just been amazing, I remember when asking you early on, are you sure you’re ok? Are you sure you’re enjoying channeling? You always say the same thing that you always end up feeling refreshed after, right?
S: That’s been the wonderful thing about this. It’s been such a benefit to - Thomas, because he gets to share information with us and he loves that, it’s a benefit to you to go on these journeys and you enjoy them so much. You always come back so happy. (yes) And then it’s a benefit to everyone listening because we get to get this information from a spirit guide and its really interesting and informative and fun!
A: Yes and he uses your voice so as he speaks through you he uses the way you speak, right? And I’ve gotten to know you and him you can tell the difference in the tone (S: definitely) and the people have the pleasure of seeing you do this in person they can see you as Maddie right here and then as Thomas and there is s slight difference there. You can tell. You are more shy than he is and I know you don’t usually like the intro part of our groups (laughter).
M: It’s difficult.
A: Yeah. I remember needing to tell people after that you’re an unconscious channel because they’d come up after group and ask you a question as if you were there for the conversation and you’re like what are they talking about!
M: Yes. I didn’t have a clue.
A: As I was saying I’ve learned to trust Thomas over the years, I find his messages to be so consistent. They are so warm and direct. I used to think they were so simple and basic and I’ve learned from him, and realized, oh these are deep messages. Sometimes I’ll remember, oh he’s told us that before and that has happened! And I didn’t initially thing that was going to happen. But I’ve learned over time.
S: I remember the first time I got a really striking confirmation that Thomas was a Spirit Guide and that was when back early on in 2016 and I was in Toast Masters and I had given a speech on Spirituality and it went over like a lead balloon. The whole group was looking at the ceiling and the floor and they didn’t like the speech at all it was way too much for them. And so I met with Thomas a few days later and he took that speech apart. He took each piece and said isn’t this true and don’t you feel really strongly about this and each piece of the speech, that I had never told anyone about, he went through with me. He made me feel so good about it. But there is no way that you (Maddie) could have known that and there was no way that he could have known that unless he is a spirit guide. And since then there has been 100s and 1000s of confirmations that he’s the real deal.
A: Exactly. What I love is that I’ve been on the spiritual path an long time, my whole life, and I’ve done a lot of different spiritual studies, I love reading metaphysical books and his messages are consistently aligned with so many of the different traditions and what I study. So what I love is so much of it is coming from one source, from him and it is in alignment. To me I find that really validating. I also love the way he doesn’t entertain people’s egos. So it’s not like he is a psychic. Psychics can see into a potential future of somebody and say oh this may happen, or you’ll get this job, or you’re going to move here or have a new love interest. And that is not his role as a spirit guide he doesn’t say those kinds of things. He speaks to our soul.
For me when we do our groups and people ask spiritual questions of Thomas, it never gets old, I just loved hearing him, even if they are the same questions, I just love hearing it. I think also when Thomas is present there is a real strong energy present. There is more happening than just the words being said. Do you find that too?
A: So pay attention as you listen to our podcasts and discussions with Thomas and just notice how it feels. Sometimes there is silence between. We decided to create this podcast because people in our groups were asking lots of questions and we thought, let’s get it out these - the common questions that people tend to ask and share it with Thomas’ voice. we thought it would be nice to have a place where we could reach more people and share the messages.
As you listen, we’re not reading off of any scripts. We come in with questions and are asking Thomas and he speaks freely.
S: And we think you’ll enjoy it! And one other thing is that sometimes, and this can be anytime you do anything spiritual, in the next day or two your ego is going to come in and try and make you believe it wasn’t real. That is a very common thing. So just be aware of that and try it again and see what you think.
A: And that’s ok! Right? It’s just natural. The other thing we always share with people is to always discern for yourself. We’re not asking you to believe what Thomas said. You’ll be hearing us ask questions that are maybe about things you haven’t heard of before and it’s ok. Always discern for yourself and never abdicate your own spiritual authority. Which means take what is yours and leave the rest.
S: Definitely. We are not trying to … this is what we believe and you don’t have to. That is ok and there is nothing wrong with that.
A: Absolutely. Everyone is on their own spiritual journey; their own path to awakening and we’r not looking to convince anyone anything. This is our labor of love and passion and sharing. We just wanted to create this as an opportunity for people to explore and experience.
S: Yes. For some people this really resonates with them and they really enjoy it and we’ve noticed that in our groups and that is why we keep doing it.
A: And we’d love to hear from you! If you have any questions that we haven’t asked and you would like to hear them answered, please reach out to us. We’d love to hear what your thoughts are and any questions you may have.
S: Yes. That is our goal here. Is to share information and answer your questions.
A: We’re all on the journey here together. Thank you for being here.
Who is Thomas and what are Spirit Guides?
Who is Thomas and what are Spirit Guides?
Steve: So we’re here with Thomas and Maddie is channeling now and not with us, and so Thomas, can you explain who you are?
Thomas: I am a spirit guide and I come from the Light and so do you. When you leave the light to become human we watch out for you. We come with you. I am coming here now through Maddie to help and to provide information and answer questions to as many as I possibly can.
S: As a spirit guide, have you ever incarnated?
T: I have. I have been human before. It has been over a couple thousand years. But I have been human, I have walked where you walk. So I understand your questions and what information you’re seeking.
S: How would you describe the difference between being a human being and being a spirit guide?
T: Being a human being is very difficult. You forget a lot of things. You’re not in the light as much. You’re not aware of it. In fact you’re really separated from it. Being a spirit guide, I’m always with the light. I bring it with me. I never leave it. I have answers. I remember everything and humans don’t.
S: So how do spirit guides help people?
T: In so many different ways. In providing comfort when you’re going through something difficult. By providing companionship. We watch you, we reward you through out your life. Like if you’ve done something that has been difficult for you we can reward you with a beautiful sunrise or a rainbow or a bird coming to land and singing to you. Those are all gifts from the light to humans.
S: Funny as you say that a memory came back to me, My wife and I were paddling on Lobster Lake and we had come back from climbing Mount Spencer. The sun was setting and there was a rainbow over Mount Spencer so the colors in the sky were beautiful from the sunset. There was a full moon and Mount Katahdin was there. So in every direction we looked in there was beauty. And the really funny thing was we had just taken our last picture with the camera and we couldn’t take any of it. It was gorgeous. That’s what came to mind when you said we reward you. It felt like a reward of some kind.
T: It definitely was. And you have that picture in your memory.
T: You’ll always have it.
Alison: Thomas, does everyone have a spirit guide?
T: Absolutely. More than one spirit guide. You come here with a guide who is with you throughout your journey as a human that never leaves you. That helps you adjust to being human and really help you get through it. Being human is not an easy task to take on so we are here to help always.
A: Is that what you mean by a Life Guide?
A: We all have a life guide who is with us from the beginning to the end, it is one who we choose.
T: Right. When you’re planning this life you pick your team and you pick your life guide. This guide will be with you even before you take your first breath as a human. And we’ll be there until you come home. Until you come back to the light.
A: How do people know and how can they become familiar with their life guides?
T: Be willing to open up to them. It isn’t even necessary to believe in them but just be open to the possibility. When you do that you’re creating an opening within yourself that allows your guide to get messages through stronger. To communicate better with you. It’s very typical at first in the beginning to think it’s your imagination. That you made it up, it’s not real, but the more you do it the more you will come to understand and you will see it’s not your imagination. There are definitely things happening and information coming through that you have no control over. That it’s coming from someone else. So it becomes clearer to you.
S: That is such a common thing that clients say to me when I’m helping them to meet their spirit guides through hypnosis. They always wonder, am I talking to myself? Am I making this up? Almost every one of them says that.
T: And when you start there is a part of you, and that is your soul, that wants this so much. So even though you may be telling yourself, I made that up, it’s my imagination, there is a part of you that is responding, already telling you, I did not make that up, I am a part of something so much bigger and this is where I belong. So you start to really open up to it very quickly.
A: So somewhere inside there is a knowing. The soul knows.
T: You soul knows, yes.
S: And I encourage them to believe that it’s real and it is a guide talking to them unless they have a firm reason why they don’t think it is. You know to just trust in it in the beginning and that can help.
T: And even in the beginning if they’re very intent in believing that it is their imagination, even telling themselves, well so what? It feels good and there’s no harming coming from it so they’re still giving themselves permission to do it.
A: What are ways and things people can do to develop a stronger connection to their guide(s)?
T: Probably the easiest is spending a few quiet moments a day with the intent of doing that. Of communication with your guide. And it’s perfectly ok to start out quietly and say ok guide, show me you are here. Prove to me that you exist. There are so many different ways this will happen and it’s different for everyone how that happens. Some will hear a clear voice, some will feel something, you know something physical, some may see something - different colors or they may even see the spirit guide. But that opens you up and starts you communicating. And if you do that at least once daily after a few days you will notice that feeling you get or that voice you hear or that image you get - that they are there even when you are not quiet and meditating and you will start to see that they are there all the time.
A: It seems that children are more open to this. Is that true?
T: They are. They have not lost the ability to see the guides and angels around them. When you become human, until you learn to communicate with other humans, you are still very close to and very much aware of your guides and the angels. You see them, your hear them, you feel them, they are definitely with you.
A: And for some reason in our culture, we don’t continue to support that. The mainstream doesn’t continue to support this knowing or belief.
T: Right. Humans will start to discourage that as soon as they start to communicate. Telling little ones your imaginary friends are just that. And in that case it’s the adults that are wrong and the child that is correct. They are very real.
What is the Light and what is Awakening?
What is the Light and what is Awakening?
Alison ~ Thomas can you please tell us what you mean when you say the Light?
Thomas ~ The Light is the Oneness. That is where everything comes from and where everything goes back to. You are from the Oneness. It is easy for humans to feel separated or to feel like you are in control of different things but in reality, even though you are here, living a human life and doing human things, you are still part of the Oneness. This is only a temporary journey for you, being human. You’re coming home again, back into the Light, into the Oneness where you belong.
Alison ~ So the Light is where we came from and where we’re going. I always think of heart. Putting my hand up here to the Light, that connection to the Oneness that is always within us.
Thomas ~ Yes, it can seem far away. It can seem non-existent, because you are human, and you have egos. You’ve been conditioned to believe certain things. And so the Light can become very foreign to you and very hidden in your human existence, but it is still there.
Steve ~ What is it like to be in the Light?
Thomas ~ It is so difficult to describe in human terms. It is so loving and so complete. In the Light, you have all knowledge. There is nothing that you don’t know or don’t remember. Everything fits together and you are such a strong part of it and you feel that. You feel very important in the Oneness, because it’s where you belong. It’s where you are. It takes all of us to make the Oneness.
Steve ~ Are the terms the Light, the Oneness and the Spirit World are they all synonymous?
Thomas ~ They all mean the same place, yes. And it’s a wonderful place, very beautiful.
Alison ~ When a human awakens to their Light and opens to their Light, what does that look like to you?
Thomas ~ We see their Light. It starts to burn brighter. It starts becoming more intense. So, we can see that they’re working towards it. At that time, when that happens, more guides will start moving into that individual. Moving closer to help them with the process of awakening.
Steve ~ Who are the beings that live in the Light?
Thomas ~ Spirit Guides, Angels, Archangels, Gods, Goddesses, humans are in the Light. You just don’t know it. You’re not as aware of it.
Alison ~ We’re in the Light but yet in our 3-D reality, right now, we are not aware of it but we are still connected.
Thomas ~ Right, yes. It’s almost like going out on a sunny day but you have coated yourself from the Light to protect yourself from it, which humans have been conditioned to do with the Light.
Alison ~ Is that part of being human? Are you talking about the forgetting?
Thomas ~ Not specifically but that is a part of it. To be human, takes so much of your focus. And with your ego and your free will, you have taken away so much of the Light. If that closeness of still being in the Light was still available to you, you would not be human, because you would come home to the Light. So, it’s necessary to block a large portion of it, while you’re human.
Steve ~ So, I take it from what you’re saying that all incarnated beings are in the Light?
Alison ~ Or from the Light.
Thomas ~ Or from the Light. And the Light is within them. But at this time, they have stepped outside of it, in order to exist in the form they have chosen.
Alison ~ Does everyone have the ability to awaken to the Light?
Thomas ~ Yes, absolutely.
Alison ~ But not everyone chooses…
Thomas ~ Not everyone chooses to, no. It can be very frightening.
Alison ~ What are the benefits of people awakening to the Light from the human perspective?
Thomas ~ They feel stronger, healthier. They have a greater understanding of things around them. They feel more connected. They look at their environment as being a part of them and them being a part of it. They realize the importance of all beings working together.
Alison ~ Nature, the planet, Mother Earth…
Thomas ~ It’s like they find their place and they feel really comfortable there. They understand so much more.
Alison ~ To me too. There is more unity, more oneness, more non-duality. Meaning that we’re not separate from things. It’s more encompassing, rather than right, wrong and judgment.
Thomas ~ Because, a lot of the human things that you value, lose their value and you change. You see what really is important and what really does matter to you. So, you are better able to work with others who are doing the same thing. There’s not so much competition or sense of power or any of that. We’re all in this together.
Alison ~ And you see the beauty of that, the interconnectedness.
Thomas ~ Yes. It’s very, very rewarding!
Alison ~ Thank you!
What is the difference of being in Ego and Soul?
What is the difference of being in Ego and Soul?
Alison ~ Thomas, can you tell us the difference between being in ego and soul?
Thomas ~ When you are in soul, you are in the Light. When you are in ego, you are in human form. You are more attentive to human concerns. Ego lives much more separated from the Light. Soul is never far from the Light. The Light is always within reach. Your ego becomes so concerned with being human that it isn’t aware of the light.
Alison ~ And yet we need ego to survive.
Thomas ~ You do. Yes. Ego is what gives you your free will, which is important for you to be able to experience in your life as a human. If your soul was to have free will, it would say, “I want back into the Light. I want back into the Oneness. Forget this human stuff. It’s cold and lonely and I don’t like it. Ego keeps you here and on your path of being human. That’s what its job is. It’s very protective of you. That’s why as you start to awaken, it can be very frightening for ego. Because it sees things ego cannot understand, cannot feel. It wants to turn away from that. As much as being human can be cold and lonely and harsh, that is familiar to ego and ego knows how to respond and how to be in that way.
Alison ~ So, as people awaken, they live more in soul, is that correct?
Thomas ~ Not initially, in the beginning for many people as they start to awaken it’s very, very frightening. Because as their soul starts to awaken, what they are feeling is their soul missing something and they haven’t moved into the Light. So, they don’t know what it is that they are missing. This is where a lot of people are diagnosed with different mental illnesses, depression and things, because they’re going through this and they don’t understand it. But the more you move into it and the more aware you are that it is the Light, the happier you are. The more at peace you will be. The more excited to be exploring that part of you.
Steve ~ What are some ways that we can go from being in ego to being in soul? Can you talk about what it feels like to be in ego compared to being in soul?
Thomas ~ Being in ego is very demanding. When you’re in ego, you’re focused on, do I have enough food? Do I have enough clothes? Do I have the right kind of clothes? Do I drive the right car? Is my house big enough? Those type of human things. When you’re in soul, you’re more like, the earth feels good on my bare feet. The sun feels good on my face. Or that bird singing sounds wonderful. Those are the things you are focused on when you are in soul. When you are in soul, it doesn’t matter if you have enough food. Because if you aren’t hungry it doesn’t matter. It only matters when you become hungry. Soul doesn’t care what kind of car you drive or if you drive at all. It doesn’t make any difference. Soul can be very happy and very content without that. Ego needs more of the material things that make it human. Soul could let go of all the material things and be very happy. Very content.
Alison ~ There are some spiritual traditions that focus on erasing the ego or transcending the ego and yet we need it to survive, to be human. So, it seems that we need to find ways to work with it. We talk in our groups about befriending the ego. How do you see that?
Thomas ~ It is very good if you can love your ego and recognize the important job that it is doing to protect you and keep you human, to keep you in the box that has been designed for you. That’s important. So, recognizing that and loving ego for doing that will allow soul to do more exploring. The more that you do that, ego will come to enjoy when soul is doing well and doing more things in soul. Ego will never come to fully understand it or be completely in soul, in that way. But it will become a lot more understanding and willing to give up that time for soul. Ego doesn’t like surprises. Let ego know, I’m going to meditate for thirty minutes and I’m going to talk with my spirit guides. So, now ego knows what you’re doing. It may not understand it. It may not see any purpose in it. Okay thirty minutes. I have thirty minutes I can spare. So, it’s not troubling to ego at all. Whereas if you just go and start meditating and don’t come back for an hour. Ego is going to be in a panic, when you come back. Where are going? What are you doing? What is happening?
Alison ~ You said recently if ego is happy you can do more things or how did you say it?
Thomas ~ You can be more in the Light.
Alison ~ More free. You can relax more into what you really are.
Steve ~ I remember early on, I got to a point where I was in soul more of the time. I looked back and pointed out to ego how our life was better since being in soul more. That we were happier. I think that helped ego to think it is better to be in soul.
Thomas ~ Yes. Remember that ego experiences a lot of fear around what soul is doing. There’s a lot of not understanding, not being able to do it. When you come back to the Light. Ego is not coming with you and ego understands that. So, it’s frightening for ego to see soul doing things like this.
Alison ~ I did a weeklong spiritual retreat a couple of years ago. When you first get there, you can hear the mind, right. When you’re with all these other people day in and day out. At first, I noticed my ego mind going when are they gonna ring the bell? When is dinner? How do I get this or that? All of the dos. I remember meditating on this little deck and there was an Adirondack chair. I remember having ego sit in the chair. Just sit here. You can relax in the sun and just sit. It was so helpful for me to compartmentalize like that. Over time ego quieted way down and settled into the retreat. It felt so great. I was so much more in soul and so much less concerned with that busy mind. Sometimes, I think of ego as being those busy mind thoughts too.
Thomas ~ Yes.
Alison ~ Oh, that’s just my ego. Since you and I, Steve have been working on it, it’s so comforting to think oh, that’s just ego.
Thomas ~ Ego has been given so many things to keep track of and remember. It takes care of all of your material things and all of your human things. And it has to remember that and focus on all of them, all of the time. It’s nearly impossible for ego to sit back and be quiet. Oh, I still have to do this and this. I need to get that taken care of and don’t forget about doing this. There’s always something.
Alison ~ Our society, in America anyway feeds ego. We’re in an ego laden society.
Thomas ~ Definitely yes! And ego will do it to itself. Oh, I have an hour, well I could take on this assignment. I could volunteer for that. It does it to itself.
Alison ~ I think ego too is focused more on separation, right and wrong, good or bad, better than vs less than. Hierarchy because of that survival instinct.
Thomas ~ Yes. Ego thinks a lot of times, if I’m not doing anything, if I’m not busy, I’m not being useful. If I’m not useful, I will be replaced. I will lose something and so it will strive to fill that space.
Alison ~ And soul is more unity focused, more about the Oneness. It’s a we vs me.
Thomas ~ Yes.
Alison ~ How about animals or other beings, do they have egos? Or is that just for humans?
Thomas ~ Humans certainly have the largest egos. Animals have some, not a lot. They’re more in soul. Plants have very little ego. Humans have the biggest egos. How about domesticated animals’ vs wild animals?
Thomas ~ They have bigger egos.
Alison ~ Because they learn from humans.
Thomas ~ Yes. (laughter) They do tricks to get treats. They do things to please humans instead of doing what they want.
Alison ~ Is there anything else about ego and soul, you want us to know?
Thomas ~ Keep in mind that you are going to go through this human life with ego and soul. So, the more you work on them working together, the more peaceful existence you will have.
Alison ~ Thank you Thomas!
Steve ~ Thank you!
Thomas ~ Your welcome!
How do we clear and protect ourselves?
How do we clear and protect ourselves?
S: Thomas do we need to clear and protect ourselves?
T: Absolutely, you do. Yes. Unless you’re very isolated and have no contact with the outside you know, stay in your own place, you definitely need to clear and protect. If you’re been out in an area when there is a lot of negative energy, and I don’t mean like a war or riots. Even something as simple as being around people who are complaining or just having a bad day and you’re around it and hearing it. You are picking up that energy. When you get away from that, when you get home and away from it, brush yourself off physically, From head to toe and move that energy away from you. Once you’ve done that focus your energy on the light within. And ask that to protect you and it will. If you’re out and about around other humans, you cannot help but pick up on that energy.
A: We have energy fields that extend past out beyond where our body ends, right?
A: And that comes into interaction with others and that is how we pick it up, right?
T: Right. And even if you’re across the room or quite a distance and you hear someone yell in an angry manner? That energy has touched you. It is now within you and a part of you. You need to get rid of that. You don’t know who or what it is or why. But it doesn’t have anything to do with you. You don’t need to hang on to it so let it go.
When you sense within yourself and this is bigger, ok? That something isn’t right, that something is definitely off, then you might need to call in your guides to help clear that.
I’ll keep calling it negative energy. But it can be many different things. It can be dark spirits, earth bound spirits, whatever it is, it doesn’t belong to you. So you need to bring in your guides and ask them to look and see and help clear away anything that isn’t yours. And it can be something as simple as, if you’ve been in relationship with someone and you break up and it’s not a good break up and there a lots of hurt feelings. You may still have parts of that person that you’re carrying. So in working with you Guides, they’ll come in and clear that energy away. They’ll take those parts that are not yours and put them back to where they belong. And then they will cleanse you with the light and then wrap you in a golden light to protect you. Anytime, even if you are not aware that you’ve been or you know how it is when you are in a group of humans? You’ll hear something you’re realizing you’re hearing it. It can still affect you. So it is good to do that.
A: Some people are more sensitive to that and more aware of that than others.
A: Sometimes, back before Covid when we could go out the dinner, I could be aware of other tables and hearing people, not wanting to really, but reading body language. There is just a lot going on that we can pick up. So this is about keeping ourselves clear, healed in a way, and our light bright.
T: Yes. That frees you up to work on your light and communicating with your guides and to work on receiving the gifts that are being brought to you.
S: What about things like watching tv or listening to the radio, watching the news, horror movies. How do things like that effect us
T: In the same way, You pick up so much negative energy. Your soul recognizes the energy not so much as the source of it, so it doesn’t know where it is coming from, the radio, or tv or live person, that energy is coming into your space. You don’t want it.
A: I think it is common with people who are in the healing professions to know about clearing and brushing off. Before and after clients and in between sessions. But what you’re speaking of is so universal. It is everyone, they need to keep their energy clear. No matter what their work environment or being out in the world.
T: You can do a clearing on yourself when and if you’ve been around others. As you’re doing it say to yourself, you’re not mine, get away from me, back off, anything to move it away from you.
You have enough of your own stuff to carry around.
S: What about protection? Is there anything else we should do to protect ourselves other than clearing?
T: Working and asking your Guides daily, maybe when you wake up in the morning say good morning to your guides and ask them, protect me through out the day. Especially if you know you’re going into a situation you know where there is going to be negative energy, ask your guides to walk with you and to protect you from that and they will.
S: I know when I”m working with a client and I find out they have an earth bound spirit attached to them, I always ask for extra protection to make sure they don’t attach to me.
T: Yes, that is very helpful. Even working with clients that maybe don’t have an earth bound spirit, you’re still dealing with a lot of negative energy. They have a lot of memories they may have negative feelings about. You tend to forget then you realize oh wait, that is not my energy, Move it around and away.
A: I don’t think everyone is aware of that invisible realm the energy fields. (RIght) I don’t think they realize there is the light and all the way from bright light to negative energy that is around us.
T: A lot of them aren’t but they are still effected by it.
A: That is why it is so important to clear and protect ourselves. It is so easy to forget.
T: It is. A lot of times people will find themselves sitting back and thinking what is wrong with me why do I feel so angry or hurt or sad or whatever. Then you think or wait that is not me.
A: We can clear ourselves right then instead of calling the doctor or taking some medicine. I often say that to dear ones when they are trying to figure out a problem and they are busy, busy and I might suggest, probably the best thing you could do right now is meditate and go within. And they say, no, I’m too busy for that! (haha)
T: Right yes. That is where your strength is. That is where your power lies and that is where the answers are.When you go within and you’re experiencing something like that you realize not everything is for you to fix. Just because you see it doesn’t make it yours.
S: What about music? How does music affect us?
T: It opens you up. So if you’re paying attention to when you’re opening up, how are you feeling? It tells you what the music is doing to you. A lot of humans think rock and roll or heavy metal or different types of music are bad. They don’t necessarily have to be. They’re creating energy and it’s up to you what kind of energy that is. You can make it positive energy or you can make it negative energy, it is up to you how you receive it.
S: So it’s more important how you receive it than how the people are creating the music, what they are projecting.
A: So there is a song that I love and I remember sharing it with you (to Steve) called, “The Sounds of Silence” by a band called Disturbed. They played it live on the Conan Show. He sang it, and to me, it was so powerful and he built it up and up and to me, I heard passion. RIght? (yes) and I love how it makes me feel. And I played it for you and you heard it differently. You heard that he was angry.
S: I heard anger, yes.
A: It effected us in totally different ways.
T: Yes, it is how you receive it.
A: It’s not right or wrong, or good or bad, it is just different what we’re hearing.
S: It could be the mood you are in at the time. You could react differently at different times the same piece of music at different times.
A: We can choose to listen to different kinds of music at different times because it is more about how we want to feel.
T: Some people would just take the name of the band and immediately start thinking negatively, So whatever they hear will affect them negatively.
A: Is there anything else about clearing and protection? I love how we ended up talking about music. (Laughter)
T: Anytime something doesn’t feel right to you, try doing a clearing. Ask your guides to help. If it doesn’t go away, then it is something that does belong to you. Something that you need to work on and deal with. But you won’t know that until you try and clear.
A & S: Thank you, Thomas.
T: Your’e welcome.
How can we communicate with our Guides? Part 1
How can we communicate with our Guides? Part 1
Steve ~ Thomas, do we all have guides that watch over us?
Thomas ~ Absolutely. Everyone comes with a team of guides that you’ve worked with that will stay with you, comfort, protect and guide you.
Steve ~ How do we communicate with these guides?
Thomas ~ Mostly by opening yourself up and wanting to communicate. The guides are there. They are in place. They’re ready. They are waiting for you to invite them and acknowledge them. So, the more that you acknowledge a guide, the stronger your relationship becomes and the easier the communication is.
Alison ~ You’ve told us in the past that just waking up in the morning and welcoming them, saying hello
Thomas ~ Yes. A lot of people find it helpful in the beginning to focus on one guide only. Say hello to that one and ask that one questions. Ask it questions even if you don’t hear and answer. Keep doing it anyway and over time you will find that you got the answer. Maybe not vocally but in some other way. But by focusing first on one guide, you get to know what it feels like when that guide is with you. When you are comfortable with that then you can bring in other guides. You can work with more and more.
Steve ~ The most common thing I hear when I ask people to connect with their guides is, “I think I’m making this up.” What would you say to someone who thinks that?
Thomas ~ The question itself is coming from ego. So, I would say, but isn’t it fun and doesn’t it feel good. That will make ego realize that there is no harm coming from this. If it does feel good, then it’s okay to do it.
Steve ~ What kinds of guides can humans have?
Thomas ~ You have your life guide who we’ve talked about that is with you from your first breath to your very last breath and will come home with you. You have a gatekeeper guide. Everyone does, that has your memories. Because when you become human, you forget so much. Your gatekeeper guide has all of your memories and brings them to you at predetermined times. What you need to remember. What will be useful for you. This is very useful so that you don’t become overwhelmed. If you had a guide that gave you all your memories, you would spend the rest of your human life trying to sort them out. So, your gatekeeper brings you only what you’re ready for and only what you need.
There are guides that will be with you at certain times, maybe when there is a certain experience you’re going through. There are guides that will come and go in your life. They maybe with you for a while, move off and then come back to you later. Humans don’t often think of animals as spirit guides, but they are. Every human has an animal spirit guide. You may have several animals that are guides. It’s common to have them at a young age, then leave and come back to you later in your life. If you look at your pets or animals, if you really look you will recognize that they are back.
There are guides that come along to show you possibilities, different options that you have. But still giving you the free will to make a choice. There are angels that come to comfort you or protect you from a specific event. Once that has passed, they will go. But you have many guides that come and go throughout your life. When you start communicating with your guides, you have the ability to call on any guide you choose to speak to. You are not limited in any way.
Alison ~ Is it true that guides show themselves in a way that is most easily received depending on what the person’s spiritual beliefs are, or the culture they live in?
Thomas ~ It’s the way you receive them, they are all the same guides.
Alison ~ So, if someone is raised in a Christian belief system, they might want to talk with Jesus.
Thomas ~ Or if they were Native American there could be many different guides that they communicate with frequently. There are several groups around the planet that are raised and taught about guides from an early age and taught how to communicate with them.
Alison ~ Is there a way to find out what your spirit animal is? I’ve had people ask that before.
Thomas ~ You can ask your life guide who your spirit animal is. There are Shamans that can bring you a spirit animal guide or retrieve one for you. You can set the intent, that you want to know your animal guide. Then be watchful and generally if you see he same animal three times within a twenty-four-hour period of setting your intent, that will be your guide. They will keep showing themselves to you.
Steve ~ I’ve also heard that if an animal bites you when you’re young that it could be a sign that the animal is your Totem Animal. Is that true?
Thomas ~ Yes.
Alison ~ Nice welcome! (laughter)
Steve ~ When I was four or five years old, I caught a turtle. I put it in a bucket. The next morning, I went out and stuck my hand in without looking and it bit hold of my finger. Turtle is my main animal guide or Animal Totem.
Thomas ~ Yes. And he will remain so throughout your life.
Steve ~ What about the way that guides appear to us when we’re first meeting them. It seems like there are different forms they might take depending on what’s comfortable for us.
Thomas ~ There are several different forms and it’s what you react to because guides will try different things until they finally get your attention. Some people hear them speaking very clearly. Some people see colors. Some may have a feeling like a hand on your shoulder or something. Some people will smell a scent and know their guide is with them. And some will actually see the guide in form. So, there are different ways. If you’re not picking up on it, they will try something else. Sometimes a guide will come to you through a knowing. You will ask a guide a question and you’ll receive the knowing. So, even if you can’t hear or see, you know the guide is there.
Steve ~ What about other forms? Some people have Faeries or Mythical Beings come to them.
Thomas ~ Faeries aren’t really guides. People that see them … faeries are playful, and they like to show you new things. So, when people can actually see faeries it means that the veil is thinning for them, they are making it work. Everything they’re doing is having an effect. With mythical beings, they aren’t guides but the more you work with your guides, the greater your ability to see them or interact with them.
Alison ~ I think you’ve told us this before, but have guides all had human incarnations? I know angels have not.
Thomas ~ They have not all been in human form, but they have all been in some form, as a being. A large portion of them have had at least one human life but not all of them, it’s not necessary.
Alison ~ And there’s no hierarchy, correct? In the Oneness where you all reside, so to speak.
Thomas ~ We’re all the same. We have the same knowledge, the same capabilities. It’s humans that distinguish between us and put us in different groups.
Alison ~ In classic movies, like with Clarence in a Wonderful Life, he’s earning his wings. But he was a novice angel, helping George Bailey, but it doesn’t work that way.
Thomas ~ You don’t have to earn your wings. You can have wings if you want them. (laughter) When you come into the Light.
Alison ~ Is there anything else about spirit guides you would like to share with us today?
Thomas ~ When people first start communicating with them a lot of times, they don’t understand the message. It doesn’t make sense to them. Tell your guide that. Tell them you don’t understand, and they will rephrase it or represent it so that you do understand. Don’t ever feel like you’re bothering them or asking too many questions, that is why we’re here. Anytime you don’t understand, speak up and say so. It’s okay.
Thomas ~ I remember one of the first times you spoke with me, you said so many humans go their whole life and never speak with their guides. So, when a human does speak with a guide, it really excites them and makes them happy. That was such a wonderful thing to hear. Thomas ~ And remember, when you talk to your guides, you’re in control. If you don’t ask for just one, you may be overwhelmed, and you can get so many messages at one time. Because when we get an invitation, we’re there. So, once you get to know your guides, it’s best to ask for which one you want.
Steve ~ And like you said, start off with one guide, build a relationship and move on from there.
Thomas ~ Then you can tell the difference.
