QMy psy­chic friend's fa­cial fea­tures change at times and she has un­usual man­ner­isms. Why?

KIM SMITH, TELFORD, SHROP­SHIRE

WENDY SAYS: What you are de­scrib­ing is termed ‘phys­i­cal medi­umship’. Your friend is act­ing as a medium and a spirit is tak­ing over the use of her phys­i­cal body. Her fa­cial fea­tures can change so she looks like the spirit, and her move­ments and man­ner­isms are con­trolled by the spirit. Some­times her voice might also change and she might say ex­tra­or­di­nary things that are not her own thoughts, as the spirit uses her vo­cal chords to speak. This takes place while the medium is in a trance and, dur­ing this time, she will be vul­ner­a­ble to loud noises, bright lights, ºor dis­tur­bances that might give her a sud­den awak­en­ing.

This phe­nom­e­non is of­ten de­scribed as ‘channelling’ and the most im­por­tant as­pect of channelling work is the rel­e­vance of the mes­sage the medium is de­liv­er­ing. The mes­sage of­ten ap­plies to the state of the world and gives in­for­ma­tion on how to ad­dress con­cerns, dif­fi­cul­ties and prob­lems. Some­times ob­jects in the room can move or will ap­pear or dis­ap­pear.

Phys­i­cal medi­umship and its re­lated phe­nom­ena were very pop­u­lar in the past, and still hit the head­lines. But, it re­quires a great deal of train­ing and ded­i­ca­tion so is fairly un­usual th­ese days.

QI never had any prob­lems with cross­ing bridges, un­til re­cently. Now, in my early for­ties, I feel very anx­ious ev­ery time I am about to cross a bridge. Could this be con­nected to a past life?

HE­LEN JAME­SON, CAM­BRIDGE

IT’S NOT un­usual to have var­i­ous fears that de­velop sud­denly, and for no real ap­par­ent rea­son.

It is highly likely that your sud­den fear of cross­ing bridges is con­nected to some­thing you’ve ex­pe­ri­enced – if not in this life, then pos­si­bly in a past life. Per­haps your en­ergy body re­calls an ac­ci­dent you’ve had in the dis­tant past, even if you don’t ac­tively re­mem­ber it. It may have resided in your sub­con­scious and sur­faced be­cause of some­thing that hap­pened to you re­cently in your cur­rent life. A trig­ger of some sort may have brought it up, even if that trig­ger is not ob­vi­ous to you right now.

It may have also come up only now, in your early for­ties, be­cause this cor­re­lates to the age you were when you had a con­nected in­ci­dent in a past life, or it could be be­cause this is the right time to deal with this past-life is­sue.

The best ad­vice I can give is to try a past-life re­gres­sion to see if any­thing comes up, and if some­thing does, deal with it.

You can also try to ac­cess your past-life ex­pe­ri­ences through med­i­ta­tion and vi­su­al­i­sa­tion, but when mem­o­ries might be trau­matic it is bet­ter to have a trained ther­a­pist with you. Once the past-life ex­pe­ri­ence is re-lived and mem­o­ries are re­leased, the fear of cross­ing bridges may well dis­ap­pear, too.

Fears you de­velop can have their roots in a past life
