Your spirit is the artist. Your thoughts are the paintbrush. The Universe is your canvas…With your love, paint away. ~ Brad Johnson

A couple of weeks ago, the featured presenter at the Victoria Metaphysical and Intuitive Development Group was Brad Johnson, from Vancouver. Brad channels Adronis, an entity from Siruis A’s star system, and the Victoria presentation included a visit from Adronis.

The evening was an energetic exploration of different aspects of spiritual growth, first with a discussion/lecture by Brad, followed by Adronis (channeled via Brad) answering questions from the 80+ people in attendance.

For one, I enjoyed the evening – Brad is a captivating speaker who gives not only detail but also his apparent passion for sharing both his experience and its place in healing people. In the video below, shot that evening, you can hear his overview for the first 28 minutes or so, followed by his channeling session (he is seated for that part of the evening.)

This filming gives you a pretty fair rendering of what happened & was shared that night – check it out!

Brad offers a wide range of classes & services – you can find out more about him & what he does (and his background!) at his Conscious Matrix website.

On his site, it says:

“Brad has mentioned on many occasions that there is really nothing special about what he does. It is an ability that everyone has access to. Whether one wishes to become a channeler or a conscious matrix communicator, it’s all within our grasp.

“All it requires is the commitment to live all elements of what such a lifestyle represents. We are all gifted in our own ways and will express our gifts in the themes that best suit us. Brad’s job has always been to awaken, inspire and expand, and this is what he aims for with dedication through every person he interacts with.”

Once a month, the Victoria Metaphysical and Intuitive Development Group meets over at the Fernwood Community Center (here’s their Facebook page, and you can find them in the postings for MeetUp groups in Victoria, BC).  Co-facilitators Dawn & Sarah continue to find interesting & engaging presenters each month, and I’m sure glad they do what they do.

Music: Make me an instrument of your peace….

Francesco, in action….

This little prayer (known to monks, worldwide) is attributed by many to St. Francis, and is notable in that it doesn’t “ask for something;” instead it simply asks that we be allowed to channel peace to the people around us.

I’ve always thought it was a pretty robust expression of that little bit in the Lord’s Prayer that says, “Thy will be done.”

Which means we get out of the way & let it flow…and I love the job Sarah McLachlan does with her musical version of it, below.

Let it wash over you….

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

Intuitives: Jane Kennard

What’s it like to talk to people who have passed away? And….when they talk to you?

Last night, we went attended a session in Victoria, BC which featured a woman who does just that. About 125 folks showed up to hear what Jane Kennard would offer as she channeled four different guides.

Over the course of nearly an hour & a half, she answered the questions of people in attendance – sometimes very specific, sometimes general – which was greeted by the questioners with appreciative nods, that the responses were in touch.

How does all this work? Jane explains in her website:

When I channel, I begin by tuning in to the energies around the people that I am with. If the session is for an individual, I will see a few beings and hear their words. If it’s for a group, I’ll see a huge crowd of beings and feel their support and love. I take a deep breath, bringing light into every part of my body. I say my own little prayer and ask my guide to take care of me. Then it’s like flying away. I have no knowledge of the words that come through, but trust that they would be acceptable to me. When I return I feel calm and peaceful.

Sometimes I’m asked why I can do this when others are not able to. I believe it’s a talent-like having an artistic ability or perfect pitch. It comes more easily to some people, however we all have the capability to learn. If you would like to develop this ability, I would suggest searching out classes and reading books. Speak openly of your desire and you will be led in the direction that is right for you. How do you know if it’s right? Let your heart lead you. Listen within yourself for what resonates and feels true for you. We all have different ways of connecting with spirit.

Here’s a little video that will give you a taste of what experiencing Jane’s channeling felt like/looked like. You can also take a look at her website, here.

Last night’s event was sponsored by the Meetup Group called the Victoria Metaphysical and Intuitive Development Group, with Dawn & Sarah organizing the evening. Their next presentation will be October 11th….check it out!
