1. To start your own Psychic Circle or Group you could try the below...

    Find between 2 – 12 people who would like to develop their psychic gifts and who are interested in the paranormal. Make sure you feel completely comfortable with the people you choose to join your circle. If there is any bad feeling between any of the members then, your circle will not be positive or successful. Find a day and time that best suits everyone for meetings – make sure that this is a day and time that people can make each week - for example if your first meeting is on a Wednesday at 2pm then, make sure that you meet on Wednesdays and 2pm each week. It is best to try and meet at least once each week or once every two weeks. If someone is unable to attend one week for various reasons then, wait until that person is free again before you meet for the next meeting.

    Just as it is important to have a specific day and time to meet each week, it is also important to have a specific meeting place. Find a place which everyone in the circle is happy with to meet, and then meet at this same place each week. The reason for having a specific time, day, all member there and place to meet (that stays the same each week), is because you are creating a positive energy by having these meetings. Our spirit guides and angels will know that these days and times are good times to connect with you as well as pass on messages. Please don’t get me wrong as they will always come through regardless of the day or time. It is just good to keep a routine for all involved – like having a regular appointment or class to attend each week. Your guides and angels will also see this as their special time where they can truly connect with you. These meetings are special, sacred and so not to be missed unless in the case of a true emergency. Make sure that the people you have invited to join your circle are 100% committed to this. Share with them how vital it is that they try to attend each meeting. Let them know that by missing a meeting it is breaking the positive energy that you are building up each week, and in turn this will slow down your development process.

    Remember that this is your psychic circle and that it is your responsibility to make sure that people do not forget about each meeting date. If there are issues in the group that you are not happy with, then you have every right to deal with these issues, mention them to the others or ask people to leave the group. Start each group meeting by saying a short prayer to the Archangels. Ask for their protection and guidance during the meeting. Once you have said the prayer then comes the next important step of grounding yourselves. You could do the ground, centre and shield exercise from lesson 1: Protection and Grounding, or find one that everyone feels comfortable with.

    Try to not drink any alcohol or eat anything for at least an hour before each meeting, as this is meant to block the connection with spirit. This is completely up to you and everyone has different beliefs on this. Personally I always feel I need a good drink and nibbles just before performing mediumship work (tee hee to calm the nerves of performing in front of people.) Some times I even have a drink half way though and it has never blocked my connection with spirit. When I was running my own psychic circle we used to meet in the afternoons and stop half way for lunch. So please know that this is optional and is completely up to you.

    Make each meeting personal to you and your members. These are only guide lines and ideas on how you could run your psychic circle. If you feel that a different approach or method works best for you then by all means do things in your own way. Each circle needs to be personal to those attending and everyone needs to feel comfortable with the layout. Ask people to share any questions that they may have. These could be questions on the paranormal, psychic development or life questions. All try to help and guide one another the best you can. If no one knows the answer then make a written and mental effort to research the answer and share it in the next meeting. You may want to sing a few spiritual songs if this helps everyone to feel more at peace and filled with love. This is entirely up to you and the members of your circle.

    All sit in a circle and one by one share any psychic experiences that you may have had that week. Also talk about each persons psychic gifts and how their development is going. It is important that each person has the chance to share their experiences and express them selves. Now put on some soothing music and try to do a relaxation meditation to help raise your vibrations and get you in the feel for spiritual work. You may do the meditation yourself or use a guided meditation cd. You may even like to use one of the various meditations from previous lessons here at Psychic Friends. Find one that best suits each member of the circle and that truly helps you to all relax.

    Once you have done the meditation then all sit in a circle again. Take it in turns to perform mediumship work. Take it in turns so that each person present has a go. Before each person is about to perform the mediumship work they should say out loud, “I call upon the loved ones in spirit who are connected to those present here today. I also call upon the highest spirit guides and angels of those present here today. Please may you come through one at a time and pass on any messages that are meant for those present. Thank you. I also ask the archangel Michael to only allow spirits of the highest vibration and who serve the Lord our God to come through, Thank you.” Once each person has had a go at performing mediumship work then you can all discuss how you found the exercise. Be honest and try to help each other as best as you can. You do not have to perform mediumship work if you do not want to. In your psychic circles you could do healing work, psychic development, telepathic work or a bit of all the above. You could do creative work such as creating angelic and spiritual projects. Each week you could do something different at your psychic circle. Make your circle personal to you and it’s members.

    Finish off the meeting by saying the below short prayer (or create your own prayer.) “We would like to thank the Archangel Michael for your protection and support. Thank you for watching over each and every one of us at this meeting. (If you performed the mediumship work) - We would also like to thank the spirits of our loved ones who came through today, and for sharing your messages. We would like to thank our highest spirit guides and angels too for your love, support and messages. We look forward in meeting again next …………… at our next meeting.”

    Now do the relaxation meditation again but just before you do say this short prayer, “Archangel Michael, we call upon you now. Please help to ground each of us present here today. Please place a bubble of protection around each and everyone of us. Thank you.” It is important that we ground ourselves and ask for this protection as it helps shut down from the spirit realm. When you perform mediumship work you have opened the door for spirits to come though and communicate through you. If you do not shut down and ground yourself properly then, this door remains open and you will be hounded by many spirits trying to come through to pass on there messages. You need to let these spirits know that there is a time a place for them to do this – the meetings each week. You need to let them know that they are welcome to come through and share their messages when the time is right for you. Once you have done the relaxation meditation and prayer then the meeting will end until the next week.
