Centennial Museum was busy last weekend thanks to the two-day Psychic Workshop they held. The workshop sold out and was a success. Participants learned how to physically, spiritually, and emotionally get in touch with themselves.
This class was led by ‘Rescue Mediums’ co-host Jackie Dennison and England’s ‘Feathers Academy’ teacher Steve Furlong. Participants also learned how to encompass and unearth psychic abilities of their own.
Participants from Toronto, Brampton, Simcoe County, and further received certificates when the workshop was over. Organizers estimate the number of participants at about thirty-three.
One participant named Sharon Clarke’s bar, ‘The Arlington’ was previously featured on Dennison’s show ‘Rescue Mediums.’ She met Dennison through the show. Clarke describes the workshop as an experience that changed her life. Clarke is a tarot card reader herself.
“We learned there were several spirits there, and the research about the building that we got to keep after was valuable information. The investigation was amazing for us, and now this workshop has been very validating.”
“For me, the weekend has been all about practicing with other people. If you trust and follow, you can learn so much about yourself. I was very happy with the workshop.”
Dennison and Furlong taught participants several valuable skills. Among them were how to open and protect their chakras, perform guided and grounded meditations, connect with spirit guides, work with different energies, and identify peoples’ auras.
On Saturday from 8:00 pm to 12:00 am, they held a ‘Paranormal Investigation.’ This part required the class attendees to split into several groups and explore different parts of the museum. Their goal was to make contact with Mr. Charles Beck, the museum house spirit.
The very first episode of Rescue Mediums in 2011 featured Centennial Museum. Dennison felt that the ambiance at the museum was intensified during the workshop. The workshop was held at this location last year as well. Just like this year, last year’s workshop was also a big success.
“The museum is the perfect place to hold this workshop, as its spirited former owner still makes his presence felt. Our workshop aims to enlighten individuals interested in psychic development and how to use the psychic tool kit,” Dennison said.
Mastering the art of meditation was a significant part of the workshop. It’s a known fact that meditation plays a crucial role in developing psychic abilities. They also credit it with enabling participants to learn how to connect with spirit guides. The workshop taught the attendees about different forms of meditation.
“Sharing the knowledge of the psychic took kit will allow students the opportunity to develop their sixth sense, helping to bring about a better understanding of their own psychic ability and the spirit world,” said Dennison.
The workshop participants all had personal motives for attending. For example, some stated that they wanted to satisfy a curiosity they’ve been having. Others said they wanted to learn how to meditate, and some just wanted to expand their knowledge of the paranormal.
All felt that they had gained a wealth of personal knowledge and learned a lot about the people around them.
One participant, Malachi Sybex, said he was a huge fan of Dennison’s show. He decided to attend the workshop when he learned of Dennison’s participation.
“I watch the show and had a friend who took the week-long workshop in the past. We wanted to take this one and it’s been awesome,” he said. Sybex told us about his uncanny ability to find lucky four-leaf clovers without even trying to. It’s almost as if they find him, he said.
“I found my first four-leaf clover three years ago and have found hundreds of them since. I just look down and see something and it’s a four-leaf clover. At first I believed it was my father who had passed away showing me, but now I just see them,” he says.
Amazingly, he says that he once found ten four-leaf clovers at one time. They seem to jump out at him for some reason.
He said, “they show me where they are and it’s just a matter of knowing the pattern and perception- they look different from the others. Under certain circumstances, some people believe it’s bad luck to find a four-leaf clover while others think it’s good luck. The biggest one I’ve found yet was 4 inches across.”
One activity that the participants found very interesting was the photographing of auras. It’s common knowledge that auras depict peoples’ energy. These energies can then be used for healing, amongst other uses. During this lesson participants got their pictures taken, then examined the pictures to see what color their auras is.
They were taught what the colors represent and how they help describe their personality type.
After they discovered their own auras, they were also taught how to read other peoples’ auras. Dennison and Furlong had the students draw a picture of themselves using different colors, which they then incorporated into the lesson.
“Chakras change all the time as people react to emotion and feelings, but the colors of the aura stay the same,” says Dennison. “You are very in tune with yourself if your aura colors are matching your drawing.”
Psychics believe that when a person’s chakras are open, it makes them more sensitive and invites vagrant spirits. This light draws the spirits to them. Attendees also learned how to open and close their Chakras to protect themselves from these vagrant spirits.
Dennison and Furlong have been holding similar workshops in all areas of Canada, thanks to their school, Feathers Academy. Participants have all expressed their satisfaction with the experience and feel they gained valuable knowledge after attending the workshop.
