Q. Where are spirit people and what is it like there?
This is a common question, with no definitive answer. Perhaps because it goes beyond what we are able to understand. The world of spirit has been described as being much like the beautiful and natural areas of earth, though I think this explanation is for the benefit of what we are able to perceive. Spirit people are energy and can perhaps build their surroundings from their thoughts. As to where it is, descriptions like- 'at the end of your finger tips and around and within you', have been aired.
Q. How can I tell if I'm psychic?

Q. How can I learn to channel my abilities if I do have them?
Learn, find out what other famous psychics did, read books, watch tv. Make it part of your life, and it will become part of your life. There is no one answer here, it depends on your commitment, your expectations, your understanding. Where you want to go with it, your goals. You will need to learn respect, how to speak to people, what to say and how to say it. Get the idea? You are best off joining a group if you are serious, although this is not essential.
Q. Can meditation help me develop?

Q. Are Ouija boards really dangerous?
Actually no, but they do get a bad press. This is a focus tool, much like Tarot cards and crystal balls etc. The difference is that it is used almost exclusively for contact with the spirit world, rather than general psychic work. In the hands of a trained & experienced medium, it forms a valid aid to communication. However, used in 'fun', by the inexperienced, or the un-protected it may attract spirits who would mislead and become difficult. Or spirits that like having fun too!
