i often recomend an open circle to further ones knowledge and devlopment if interested.
an open circle is normally run by a group that consist of mediums,sensitives and the curious alike.
they are normally open to the public and are usually set within a spiritualist church/meeting
an open circle is literally that..a circle of chairs for the congregation to sit..the circle normally represents the bond between the group,and is not normally liked to be broken,if seats remain empty the chairs can be taken away or filled with spirit by the mediums
most open circles teach the importance of protection etc..and although not always verbally heard the mediums in situ will put up proitection for the group attending
a opening prayor normally starts the session,followed by a hymn.and is always ended with a closing prayor too
the good thing about an open circle is that it is usually split into two sections,
the first being the best part for some,questions and answers from anyone that can be answered in the same way,although the mediums normally are those to reply.
any questions can be asked that are in connection to the paranormal,and at times you may get people asking about subjects involving hauntings,ouiji boards,or just simply curious as to know about how spirits do this and that..
it is an informative part of the service for those with an interest in it.
the second half is when people can work..members of the group are asked to sit quitly whilst those who would like to work can do so..when i say work i mean if they would like to recieve and give messages to thers present in the group,they can do so at this point..this doeant mean that this is just for the mediums,any member of this group no matter how little and insignificant to the person what they may have has,can stand up and share with others,this is a good foundation to learning to give messages no matter how small they may seem,and nobody will mock your abilites,more than likely offer support and reassurance to what you are finding new about yourself..offer support and help in understanding what you recieve and how to give it..
