Working with photographs

In some cultures, particularly those classified by ethnographers as being “primitive”, there is a wide-ranging and long-lasting reported idea (often interpreted as being a belief) that a photograph captures the soul of a person (related article). I do not believe that this is an accurate reflection (pardon the pun) of the situation regarding human energy fields and photographs. I think it has been mis-interpreted or changed through the ages in popular mythology.

In my investigations into the concept of energy being in any way related to photographs I have come to the following conclusions:-

  • No part of the soul is removed with the taking of a photograph?
  • Any realistic depiction can be used to direct energy towards
  • Unless the recipient has taken precautions then the energy will find its target, and the intention of the energy will be unleashed.

Suddenly this makes the reluctance to be photographed seem a little less “primitive” and a lot more sensible. In the wrong hands you just don’t know what intentions are going to be directed toward you and from whom!

How photographs act as connection points

Photographs can only act as a focus for intent for directing the psychic energy of living humans. In other words, no ghost, spirit, deceased human, or any other form of intelligent entity can use a photograph for the direction of intent. People, living people, can use photographs to act as the destination for their intended energy. The result of this is that this visualisation creates a psychic bridge – a sort of tunnel – through which the projector can transfer energy to the intended recipient who is depicted in the picture.

We can see how this works by choosing a picture that contains several people. The intended energy will only be received by the people to whom the energy has been directed. Within any group the whole or any single member may be selected and the result will be that the recipient of the intended energy was the target selected by the sender when the photograph was used. Thus, we should perhaps think more carefully when we allow photographs of ourselves to circulate. Amongst friends this is good, but amongst the wider community this may invite unwanted attention.

The degree to which the energy sent will affect the target depends on the status of the energy field of the targeted person. Someone with a strong energy field or who is protected by forces that connect to their field may be completely unaffected by any attempt to connect to them. Other people’s energy fields may actually attract this type of connection whether intentionally or otherwise. Some people’s energy field is so weak that attachments of all sorts can occur quite readily. I recommend Sue Allen’s book “Spirit Rescue” which discusses these forms of attachment and how to prepare and repair your energy field.

I have found that it is only possible to direct energy to your your target in its current state. In other words, it is not possible to attempt to heal a past trauma by directing healing energy to a photograph of someone when they were younger (in the past). Only the present can be used as a focal point for this kind of energy work. This technique has no value for trying to do things like soul retrieval, or anything like that. It is very much a technique of the moment, even if it makes distance no object.

I’m sure you can think of some ways in which this is a positive thing, and others in which this quality of photographs could be used negatively. As with any knowledge, it is the intent and activity surrounding the knowledge that determines its value. It is possible to use a photograph of yourself to direct positive intentions and healing that will reflect back on yourself! Here is one other suggestion for making a positive use of photographs to direct energy.

Orbs – just can’t dismiss them

I once thought I caught a phenomenon commonly called an “Orb” in a photograph I took in 2010 at the West Kennett Long Barrow in Wiltshire. I had been inside doing some meditation. When I finished I went around each chamber taking pictures for the blog. Later, when I looked at the chamber in the photograph in which I had had the profoundest connection I found a ball of transparent light on the picture. I remember quite distinctly having an “urge” to take two pictures one after the other. Now, there was no reason for doing this because I only took one picture of the other parts of the barrow, but when it came to this particular chamber I took tow, quickly in succession. One had a transparent globe of light on it and the other didn’t.

I then did some research on orb lights. Professional photographers had done a good job of totally dismissing the phenomenon, and had cites the following contributing factors to why the phenomenon occurred:-

  1. Digital camera technology
  2. Flash photography
  3. Specks of dust or rain in the atmosphere

In fact, this article went a long way to making me think that it was all just a product of a combination of cheap technology and airborne particles:

“This comprehensive survey strongly supports the hypothesis that orbs are simply the result of dust and other airborne material drifting close to the camera and reflecting the flash illumination back toward the image sensor and provides long overdue definitive evidence that their origin lies firmly within the mundane and explainable, not the paranormal or supernatural.

A 3 megapixel CCD actually captures less than 10% of the total image information available within a scene when compared with a 35mm camera negative. The software has to ‘fill in’ these gaps in the image by making comparisons with the information from neighbouring pixels, thus a single pin point of light in a scene may be ignored completely or seen and then ‘expanded’ by the software as it compares and interpolates each pixel with it’s neighbours – the single point source of light becoming a gradually larger and fainter circle of light – giving the characteristic circular Orb anomaly.”

Well, my camera is a 10 megapixel camera, but let’s not be too picky about this. I couldn’t rule any of those factors out of the West Kennett situation – I had used a digital camera with a flash, and it was surely quite dusty in there.

Weeks later I took some more photographs using a flash where I knew there was lots of dust and got the same transparent glowing globes on my picture. Later I took some pictures in the rain and got the same. Transparent orbs which had an ethereal appearance. Well, mystery solved then, it was merely a trick of the light and the technology. I put orbs away to the back of my mind and though no more about them.

Formby Point

Beautiful pine trees on Formby Point, Wirral

Then recently, I copied some pictures off my camera from a special day that M and I had spent at Formby Point on the Wirral, Merseyside. It had been special for one particular moment. I had an urge to go down a particular path despite it not looking particularly promising, and despite the weather being cold. I had that urge. So much so, i connected to the forest and expanded my aura into it in order to “feel” what was going on. Something was calling…

As we were walking through a mixed forest of pine trees and birch trees near to the shoreline I saw a peculiar bent-over tree that reminded me of my favourite tree in Delamere Forest and also Alderley Edge which were also bent over.

Delamere's bent over tree

I stopped next to the tree. M realised that I wasn’t following her and stopped too. Why had I stopped? I filled the time in by taking some pictures while I thought about an answer to that question. After the first photo I felt odd. I didn’t want to take any more pictures, but I made myself zoom in on the way that a birch tree had grown into the bent over pine tree, but all the time I was doing this something was nagging at me, saying “This is irrelevant!”. Very odd feeling, so I stopped taking pictures.

Even though M was waiting for me I said I needed a moment. I tuned into the pine tree, placing my hand a foot above the point where the birch tree joined it, and the crook of its “arm” as it reached for the sky. A frisson of energy made me shiver and I used the connection to send loving thoughts to the tree, and to the forest in general, wishing it a long life and thanking it for being so unusual and delightful to look at.

Then we carried on our walk. The sky was grey, dull and cloud-covered, threatening rain. Minutes later I had collected shells from the shore and washed them in the sea, asking for the sea to bless the shells. For some reason I would need them later, and I put them into my pocket. We walked back. The rain stayed away until we got back to the car. We had been very lucky.

Today, I copied the pictures from that visit to my PC and looked at them. Here is the one of the bent-over tree:

What are those glowing circles?

What can I say? Low light, no rain, no dust, and too many coincidences.

Gwas. Believing again.
