Then you don’t have to.
While it is never certain which spirits are going to show up in a channeling session, you do have some control.
If there is a spirit you don’t wish to speak with – a passed family member, friend or acquaintance – and they show up, you can ask them to leave.
I was visiting one of my sisters shortly after my Dad passed and he came to me wanting to speak to my sister. (He makes me sneeze rather violently and also makes my inner left eye itchy so he is hard to ignore). I let my sister know he wanted to speak with her but she was at a stage in her grief that she wasn’t ready to hear from him. I asked him to go and come back at a time when she was ready. He respected that and left (and thankfully stopped making me sneeze and my eye itch!).
But try not to place limits on your session.
Some people are afraid that a specific spirit that they know is going to say something that will upset them. This is why they don’t want to hear from them.
However, a specific spirit will come through because they have something to say that will help you. They may want to ask for forgiveness. They may want to tell you that there is nothing to feel guilty about. They may just want to tell you they love you. They just want to help you.
Don’t let fear hold you back.
You need that message. If you aren’t ready to hear it at the time, then you can ask them not to come through. But know that somehow and at some point they are going to get that message to you.
The longer you put it off, the more your fear will build. It is sometimes better to face things as they arise. Spirit isn’t coming back to reprimand you for something. They are coming back to give you messages of love, hope and guidance.
Keep an open mind and open heart and reap the benefits of loving guidance from Spirit.
