There are different kinds of circles:-
- An open circle where anyone can attend.
- A closed circle for chosen members only.
- A healing circle dedicated to healing.
- A teaching circle done via trance or by direct teaching, this can be open or closed.
- A working circle used by spirit to work for spirit, hopefully always closed!
Often the minute someone realises that they are psychic or mediumistic they think they must join a circle. They think this is the glamour or social status of a psychic or medium. They think this is how they can develop the quickest – wrong!
Circles aren’t glamorous and circles aren’t the exclusive way to develop either. To me, your attunements are your greatest opportunity to blend with spirit for your higher good.
A closed circle is always better for obvious reasons but the disciplines still apply. Asking for protection and closing down are the tools you must always apply and never forget. They are vital for your health and safety like wearing a hard hat when you ride a bike or visit a demolition site. You can learn how to do this by following the tutorial in my Development Book.
Spiritual circles are brought together with a great deal of care by spirit which is the difference between a psychic circle and a spiritual one. It is brought into being by teamwork with spirit never by the will of the sitters. A circle’s harmony is built gradually, slowly, as each sitter is brought into the circle. When a circle is convened by spirit, the sitters are of like mind and their level of understanding is similar.
When you sit within a spiritual circle you do not sit for personal achievement. You are not brought into a spiritual circle for your own personal development, you are brought into a spiritual circle and asked to serve. The whole ethos of a spiritual circle is not demand, is not development, it is service. You do not choose what you are going to do either. You ask, ‘How may I serve? How may I best serve spirit and best enhance the work of this circle?’
If anyone ever asks you, ‘Want to join a circle?’ or words to that effect, be wary. If you are meant to be in a circle you will be asked or led in such a way that you know is right, not a casual, ‘Why don’t you join ours?’
