Sensing History with Psychometry

Psychometry Vibrations

Article by Craig Hamilton-Parker.

This is an extract from my book Psychic School. It will teach you the basics of giving psychic readings and mediumship. This article shows you how you can use psychometry as a stepping stone to medium and psychic readings. It shows how sensing psychic vibrations in places and objects will enhance your skills at giving readings.

It is said that the birds never sing at the former Nazi extermination camps of Belsen, Dachau, and Auschwitz. God’s creatures know that these places “smell of death” and are filled with the dark vibrations of the past. Intuitively knowing that a place is dangerous has survival value. This instinct has been passed on to us by our archaic ancestors. Not only can we sense fear from bad places but we are also aware of benign and helpful vibrations. When we enter a place of worship there is a feeling of holiness from the centuries of worship that is imprinted into the structure of the building. Similarly the vibrations at an amusement park will buzz with excitement and a theatre will be infused with the emotional energy left behind by audiences. The impressions we get are more than what our senses tell us: there is something “in the air.”

This feeling of the vibration of a place, which we commonly refer to as having good or bad “vibes,” becomes particularly sharp when we buy property. We don’t just choose a place because of price, room sizes, and location. It has to “feel right.” It has to “feel like home.” You may have noticed that some places have a bad atmosphere and others feel welcoming. One of my daughters works in real estate and says that many house purchasers will ask if any of the previous occupants were divorced or if anyone ever died in the house. A great many people are concerned by the vibrations that are left by former occupants and ask whether there is a history of violence, murder, or crime connected to the property. Houses with a bad vibe or a dark history just don’t sell.

Psychic Vibrations

Vibrations of Places

Why is it that certain places have a feeling of foreboding? Mediums and psychics believe that thought travels outside of our body and is absorbed into the environment. This would account for why some places have a definite atmosphere. A psychically sensitive person may become aware of these vibrations and respond to the memories that are imprinted onto the area’s energy field. For example, if a terrible event such as a murder happened, then they may “see” that event in their mind’s eye. And if they are very sensitive they may see the event with their physical eyes as well. Most ghost sightings are a result of a psychically sensitive person responding to the vibrations “recorded” in the environment, which they see as an apparition. This, of course, differs from the self-aware spirit of someone who is living a new life and makes themselves known to us.

Places may also retain the residue energy of historic events and the thoughts and feeling of people who once lived there. I have received many letters and emails through my newspaper columns from people who have had very powerful experiences in which they momentarily have been transported back in time and “seen” events from history happening around them. I have posted some of these extraordinary accounts on my website. (We also now offer personal psychic readings by phone from our site)  Perhaps these people have experienced the historic recordings I have been writing about or it may be that they encountered a brief time slip and directly experienced these past events. If our consciousness is not subject to the constraints of time, then it follows that these people could indeed be seeing directly into history. Skeptics argue that it is just fantasy, but in many instances the person is able to recall facts that were completely unknown to them at the time.

Archaeology and  Vibrations

Many of the leading archaeologists, such as Heinrich Schliemann and Arthur Evans  have been attuned to the idea that places and relics may retain memories of the past. Major historic discoveries are often found, not through systematic excavation, but because of a hunch. Something leads the seeker to dig in a particular place where great treasures are unearthed. For example, Bligh Bond recounts in his book, The Gate of Remembrance, how the Edgar Chapel in the abbey of Glastonbury in Somerset, England, was discovered using clairvoyance. Similarly, a number of archaeologists have used psychics in their digs with considerable success. Dr. Norman Emerson of the University of Toronto reported being assisted in his digs by a businessman named George McMullen, who had a sharp talent for locating ruins and reconstructing their associated history.

Vibrations and Objects

Objects that also retain the energy of the past can be intuitively accessed using clairvoyance. To demonstrate this, BBC Television asked me to prove that memories of the past can be embedded into objects or locations. With experts on hand to verify my findings, I was to tell the history of three mystery items when taken to their locations by car. My primary task was to identify three historical characters using artefacts from southern England’s past. To make it harder, I had to remain blindfolded for the entire journey, ensuring that the locations were as much a mystery as the items themselves.

The first artefact was an oval jewel set in gold. Unbeknownst to me it was part of an aestel commissioned by King Alfred and held in the Salisbury Museum. It would have held an ivory pointer and was used by clergymen to follow words on a manuscript, particularly a bible. I identified the object as a pointer and correctly picked up on the age of the jewel and the male connection. The second location was an old library where I was handed a model of a head. I correctly stated that it was the death mask of an unrepentant murderer who was hanged.

The most exciting challenge came when my blindfold was removed in an unremarkable room in a Victorian country house. I was handed me a violin. Immediately I felt that this violin had not been played by a skilled musician. I correctly stated that the instrument was played for fun from childhood and that it was part of a set that included a cello. I identified the owner as an author, and came up with several possible names, including Thomas Hardy. The curator was astonished. The violin indeed had been owned by Dorset-based author Thomas Hardy in the late 1800s. Hardy was taught to play by his father and he played the instrument for fun at local dances. It is now on display at Max Gate, Hardy’s home near Dorchester.

    There is a strong connection between physics and metaphysics. Because of a great deal of synchronistic/intuitive awareness, a type of knowingness has developed in me. I’ve come to a much deeper understanding of physics and metaphysics because of this. And I’ve come to understand complex subjects like time travel, parallel universes and reincarnation patterns in a much deeper way.

    Many researchers claim that quantum theory is going some way to qualify many of the claims made by psychics. The solicitor Victor Zammit proposes that “Quantum physicists are discovering no conflict at all between the physics of the subatomic world and belief in the paranormal and the afterlife.”

    Links between consciousness and the quantum world are also being proposed. (See Centre for Consciousness Studies) by traditional science too.

    So what do you think? Is consciousness a sort of vibration? Do you have a theory?
