Today’s guest is one of your favorites. Her first interview on the Big Séance Podcast was all the way back to episode 5. She was then co-host for episode 17, which was one of our special Halloween episodes, and she had contributions in episodes 19 and 24. Today she gets the stage, once again, all by herself, though it’s a different book this time. We’re going to be talking about her first book, The Spirit of Creativity: Embodying Your Soul’s Passion.

The Spirit of Creativity: Embodying Your Soul's Passion by Karen A. Dahlman, The Big Séance Podcast, BigSeance.comKaren A. Dahlman is an author, licensed therapist, business owner & consultant and a leading expert Ouija-ologist. She has been researching the use of the Ouija Board since 1973 by first-handedly using and perfecting her communication with varying consciousness and sentient beings via this tool with consistently amazing results!

Having a strong, spiritual connection to her spirit friends, as she has throughout her entire life, she teaches others within her books about the positive benefits of using the Ouija Board and other creative means as a pathway for expanding and deepening one’s world and expression within it in the most profound ways.

From working in the creative and humanistic field as a private practice art psychotherapist and then more recently as the CEO of a consulting and design firm in the high tech wireless industry, she found herself coming full circle within her career, from right brain to left brain to center brain. Karen strives to maintain a balance of her total brain within her heart.

She endeavors to help others deepen into their unique possibilities found only within their heart, so that they too may discover their own empowerment to affect personal growth, their spiritual evolution, and a passionate expression of their calling. Karen shares her developed processes for doing this within her books.

 

In this episode:

  • Karen’s work and background with creativity 4:15

  • So what role did the Ouija play in writing this book? 16:47

  • “Our own beliefs and the beliefs we hold about others or about life in general can affect us.”
    So how do we move beyond those limiting beliefs? 25:05
  • “Life is a process.” “Happiness is found in the path, not the destination.” 29:05
  • Karen on creativity and chaos 33:41
  • Chaos and soul contracts 38:39
  • Sleepwalking through life. How do we know if we are? 42:38
  • Meditation, Self-hypnosis, Dreams, and Trans-Awareness 50:05
  • What led Karen to what she’s doing now? Why these specific writings? Why Ouija? 1:04:07
  • What’s coming up for Karen? OuijaCon! New book coming soon! 1:09:18

3 Random Things, a Tribute to Buzz from Home Alone, and the Parlor

In the spirit of the season, and in the style of Buzz, from the movie Home Alone, I’ll list 3 random things that have been on my mind the last couple of days. I really would like to know your thoughts on any of these points.

But first, just in case you’ve forgotten…

 

 

A.

Reunions, Dr. Raymond MoodyI’ve been reading Reunions: Visionary Encounters with Departed Loved Ones by Dr. Raymond Moody. I’ve mentioned him and his work with facilitated apparitions and psychomanteums in a recent post with a review of his latest book. I’m absolutely fascinated by it all and am thinking about putting together a podcast episode on the topic. 

Wouldn’t it be nice to just step into a room, one that is specifically designed for facilitated apparitions, and pretty much be guaranteed that you’d see and have some kind of communication with a passed loved one? Can you imagine how much one might be able to heal and move on from the pain and suffering of loss or other struggles in life? And perhaps just as important, it would simply be super cool!! Dr. Moody has had mind-blowing results from his experiments, with comforting results from the sitters, to say the least. According to his book mentioned above, Dr. Moody claims in nearly 50 percent of the subjects, “complex communications were reported.” Am I the only one that wants to empty out my walk-in closet to design a room like this for experiments?!

 

2.

I’m trying not to read too much into this, but Friday afternoon at school, in the middle of a class I suddenly had uncomfortable feelings and looked over toward one of my classroom doors. We were playing Name That Tune and listening to several recordings. My mind for some reason went through an intruder/lockdown scenario. I stared at the double doors, wondered if the latches at the top and bottom were secured, and if they would really hold the door closed if someone attempted to pull them open forcefully. (These particular doors aren’t even the only entrance to worry about in my two connected classrooms. In the event of a lockdown, I have to be concerned about three doors/entrances–four if you count the door connecting the two classrooms.) As I stared through the skinny crack between the double doors, I wondered how much sound someone outside would hear, even with us in hiding. I shook myself out of it and continued with our game. 

When I got in my car to head home after school, CNN was already tuned in on my SiriusXM radio. They were reporting the developing story of a shooting outside a Portland, Oregon high school. They’d mentioned the fact that it had happened about an hour and a half earlier, which would have been about the time I had my uncomfortable spell. 

I’m not sure what conclusions, if any, to draw from this. Sadly, school shootings are becoming so common now days that we barely pay attention to them, so I suppose it truly could be coincidence… although I know what many of you will say about those. My heart goes out to the community and those involved.

 

…and D.

Last night I had a crazy disturbing dream. A murderous dream that could have come straight out of Dexter. A dream that I don’t even feel comfortable talking about! I woke up feeling so dark and icky. Why why WHY???

 

Actually, here’s a bonus thing. We’ll call it 5.

Victorian ParlorI’ve been considering changing the subtitle or tagline of BigSéance.com and The Big Séance Podcast. At the time of this writing, and since my very first post, it has been “My Paranormal World.” When I greet listeners to each episode of the podcast, I often say something like “welcome to The Big Séance table”, which almost sounds confusing, like that’s the name of the show. Therefore, sometimes I’ve dropped it to just “welcome to the séance table”, which isn’t much better. I’ve wanted to make the listener feel like they’ve walked into a séance room… or at least into whatever particular episode they’re listening to. This “come on in” feel has gotten me thinking about the concept of the parlor in the Victorian days and in the height of the spiritualism movement. A séance, or any afterlife communication, would most certainly have been conducted there. But I suppose my greeting on the podcast doesn’t have to have anything to do with the subtitle of BigSéance.com. Do you have any thoughts on how to creatively include “parlor” in the subtitle or tag line? Is it a dorky idea? I don’t even know if tag line is the right name for what I’m going for. Shoot me your thoughts!

 

Period.

 


Calling All Dream Interpreters. Ready Go!

Me jogging (not swimming) through the water in a long, single lane lap pool in my very nice yard (of a very nice home). I was jogging back and forth from the deep to the shallow end. 

A group of neighborhood kids playing in the yard around me.

One girl continues to be mean, causing trouble and starting fights. 

I scold the mean girl, tell her to “peace out” and “leave the property”.

The girl leaves (after making a dramatic exit).

The rest of the kids cheer and then continue playing again.

I continue jogging through the water, where I find an obnoxious, clunky, yet decorative, brown, plastic, helmet-looking “thinking cap” contraption in the water.

Stop laughing at me. No seriously.

It is so hard to explain or describe it, but I see it in my head perfectly. 

Think –> 

Complete with wires and parts that would have to be included for such a cap.

Except more like (excuse my lame sketch)… 

 …and in the shape of a plus or cross.

And all surfaces covered in a decorative brown plastic design, similar to this.  

Stop making fun of me!

In my head, I knew that this hat/contraption had some kind of fame or significance to it. In the dream, a memory came back to me of some famous female (that I knew?) saying “This is the hat that I wore in blah blah…” as if it were a costume or prop from some old Hollywood film from the 40s or 50s.

I remember thinking I should use it for a project or something. 

 

Okay ready GO! I’ll also except referrals for therapists and psychiatrists.
