This week in my online clairvoyance training class  we continued our group practice sessions using the method the founder of the school (The International School of Clairvoyance) Debra Katz teaches both in her books and through her courses.

I like this method because it is structured and understandable.  For me, anything that provides a framework I can follow is more learnable  then a vague or ill-defined approach.  I also love that Debra teaches this class herself and find her guidance invaluable.

Debra's method uses several clearly defined psychic tools as an aid to clairvoyant reading.  Among these are a viewing screen and the image of a rose (or other flower).

Visualizing said rose has been a challenge for me.  Last week after meditating everyday I was able to see the rose once and then an actual field of roses in a bright true red.  It was an exciting moment but no matter how hard I tried I was not able to repeat it.  Such is the nature of learning new skills and I understand that.  Overall I am happy simply to be learning as clairvoyant reading was something I once thought I would never be able to do.

In this week's class we were asked to read for a fellow classmate by putting up a flower.  As is often the case, I struggled to see my flowers and then in the second reading  I suddenly saw a sea of flowers - a riot of big blown out pink and purple blossoms, thick green leaves and tangled curling vines.  The color was a little dim but the image was detailed and defined.    I was happy to have received such a strong visual.  Seeing it reminded me that this goal is indeed attainable.

I was able to provide an interpretation of sorts for our readee, identifying the flowers as chrysanthemums and suggesting that many different things were blooming in her life all at once. This  may or may not have been accurate but I found it interesting that another student reading the same individual identified the flowers she saw as peonies.  Never much of a flower gardener I asked myself, aren't peonies a little like chrysanthemums?

After class a quick image search told me that they were and something else as well.  My flowers were much more like peonies than they were mums.  I thought about the symbol journal we are supposed to keep for Spirit Circle and the many times I have been told to study images and symbols as aid to psychic work.  Finally it clicked.

Symbols are our code in psychic work and knowing those symbols is of value.  Knowing a peony from a chrysanthemum is important because every flower is a symbol and each symbol has a meaning.  I never really wanted to keep a list of symbols but why not a sketch book?  I can draw a bit and when I don't have time to draw I can paste in images.  It won't be hard to add a bit of text and I suspect that it will be much more memorable than the dictionary approach.  Using existent symbology for things like flowers, birds, animals and colors will be fun!

This is how I intend to build my vocabulary of spirit and I believe that I will start with flowers.  Pictures of my symbol book to follow.   Now off to Barnes and Noble for the perfect symbol sketch book!

From A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle:  

"Since time immemorial, flowers, crystals, precious stones, and birds have held special significance for the human spirit.  Like all life-forms, they are, of course, temporary manifestations of the underlying one Life, one Consciousness.  Their special significance and the reason why humans feel such fascination for and affinity with them can be attributed to their ethereal quality..."
