I circle is a joining of like minded people who have a common interest in contacting their spirit guides and thus contacting relatives, Angelic Realms.

    They meet and sit at the same place, the same time, the same day of the week in order to create a regular controlled atmosphere. This is a stricter way of psychic development as it has more structure.

    Within these meetings they meditate, and use deviation tools like psychometry, crystal ball, Tarot cards etc and channel through spirit guides and loved ones for messages for themselves and for other people within the group. These days these circle meetings are relaxed and have a large self development element. They are certainly not as dramatic as the Victorian times which is how most people think a 'psychic circles' is run.

    Many people think Psychic Circles are where Mediums create Ectoplasm or go into Trance.

    Ectoplasm which is a term coined by Charles Richet to denote a substance or spiritual energy "exteriorised" by physical mediums. Ectoplasm is said to be associated with the formation of spirits; however since World War II reports of ectoplasmic phenomena have declined and many psychical researchers doubt whether genuine cases ever existed.

    Trance on the other hand is still seen today - but there are many different levels of Trance Mediumship which people in circles perform, from allowing you Spirit Guides / loved ones to use your body and/or voice box to bring through messages, help and advice that would be useful in our lives to the more basic Channelling via Automatic Writing; which is sitting quietly in a state of controlled focus with your spirit guides you can actually write messages straight through from loved ones and spirit guides.

    You can use various different tools to help you advance in this contact but it is all for the purpose of communicating with those souls that are no longer alive with us here.

    If you are thinking of joining a circle check that this has a good reputation and that you are protected by an experienced Medium or Clairvoyant. This is not child’s play but when done in a safe manner you will never look at life the same way its wonderful.
