What is relay channeling? I’ve never heard of that before?
“Relay Channeling is the art of using clairvoyance, clairaudience and/or clairsentience to receive and convey information from non-physical entities such as higher selves, souls, spirit guides, counselors and deceased beings, to aid in the healing process for those seeking answers to questions that are causing inner conflict and dis-ease. Science is moving more and more into the idea of humans having energy fields and that those energy fields are packed with ideas and information that clairvoyants can see, hear, feel and relay.”
How did you learn to talk to spirit guides?
“I had been meditating for over fifteen years and I always received a lot of information and healing in meditations, seeing entities or hearing their voices was so natural, I thought any one who meditated was having a similar experience as I was.”
“But I discovered I could talk to ‘spirits’ directly, one afternoon in 1987 when a friend came over for tea. ‘Maria,’ she said, ‘You get so much information from your spirit guides. Could you ask your spirit guides to talk to my spirit guides and give me some information about my husband and my son?’ I said I would try, then went into meditation and requested information from my spirit guides. They started talking to me about her husband and her son so I relayed the information that they were saying to me on to her. When I came out of meditation, she was flabbergasted by my accuracy and I learned that I had a new talentJ!”
