20150425_160037 The tasting room and barrel room at Avio Winery & Vineyard in Sutter Creek, CA

Imagine discovering that you think that you drive a car from the 80s when in reality you drive a vehicle from present day that is loaded with all of the latest options, you just need to know how to utilize some of the more advanced features, and of course what they are.

For nearly a decade Psychic Medium & Animal Communicator Charles Peden has provided his services worldwide via the phone, internet and in person, now it is time to share his knowledge and to teach others what he has learned in providing thousands of readings over the past several years.

You too can communicate with your living animals, past animals and humans in spirit. Come join Peden for a hands on learning experience at Avio Winery & Vineyard in Sutter Creek, CA. Classes are held monthly, check website for schedule.

On April 25th of 2015 the first teaching workshop was held at Avio in the barrel room. The response was such that at the end of the class nearly everyone asked when the next one was scheduled for.

Our animal companions, (pets) truly do become family members and when their time here in the physical form has come to an end and they have passed and joined your ancestors in death, the pain can be unbearable. The passing of a loved one often prompts one to explore what is beyond the veil of death and to seek answers from those who seem to know something about such matters and many turn to psychics and mediums for answers.

There is nothing wrong with seeking answers about the bigger questions in life, the problem is that many times you get different and conflicting information from multiple sources, when each source is posed with the same question. When seeking out answers remember that if someone can tell you what your pet is thinking in detail, that they had better be able to describe that animal and very specific details about them to verify their connection. If you are asked to provide a wealth of detail about your loved one in order to establish a connection, ask additional questions once a “connection” has been “established” in order to verify the strength of the connection. For example, I might ask questions such as favorite place to sleep, type of diet, what time of year they came into the family, and other very specific questions.

As a psychic medium and animal communicator who has provided thousands of connections over the past nine years, I would say that it is safe to say that I have a little bit of knowledge with regards to the big reincarnation question.

Every week I am asked about reincarnation and if and when a beloved animal companion will be returning to you during this lifetime in another body of the same species, or in some cases another species altogether, such as a dog coming back as a cat or a human.

Here is my response: No. Your animal will not be returning to you in another physical form during this present lifetime of yours, and here is why I know this.

  1. Every animal that I have reached out to who has passed has come through, very rarely it has taken more than one attempt to make contact, but in the vast majority of the cases I establish contact fairly quickly.
  2. Regardless of what time period your past animals are from, they are able to come through with ease.
  3. Your animals who have passed inform me that they will interact with new and or existing animals in your home, this can sometimes lead someone to believe that their past animal has returned as a new animal is exhibiting behaviours that similar or the same as your past animal. It is simply your past animal coaching your new animal, for fun and to demonstrate that they are still present in the home.
  4. I am yet to connect with a single animal that has revealed that they had come back from a previous pets body.
  5. I have never had a past animal tell me that they are coming back in another body.
  6. If they reincarnated as some would have us believe, our animals would suffer form the same thing that we do, no solid memories of our past lives and relationships, thus making reincarnation a pointless exercise.
  7. Our loved ones continue to watch over us in spirit and in reading after reading I have brought forth solid confirmations of our past animals and human companions watch our current day to day activities.
  8. In one reading a client had been informed by another “psychic” that her cat was going to come back to her at a local shelter and the charlatan went so far as to describe the physical appearance that the new body would look like. This was after she asked me where her cat was at the time of the reading, I saw the cat on a dresser in a box. It turns out the cats ashes were where I was describing.
  9. In my experience those who claim to know when and where your animal is going to reincarnate and come back to you are simply fleecing the grieving.
  10. It’s all about burden of proof. With only a name and species, I, or any other good psychic medium will describe in detail your animals physical appearance, breed, age, manner of passing, diet, favorite activities, how acquired, favorite person, favorite treats, personality, living arrangements, and much, much more.

Bottom line is I believe that our loved ones wait for us in spirit and that once we join them in spirit we can have full closure and bring everything full circle. After reuniting in spirit, I believe that our journey may continue together, provided that is what the two of you agree to.

No photos should be required to make a telepathic connection with a loved one in spirit or with a living animal.

Group Reading with Psychic Medium & Animal Communicator Charles Peden at Spirits Child in Tucson, Arizona - February 15, 2015

Group Reading with Psychic Medium & Animal Communicator Charles Peden at Spirits Child in Tucson, Arizona – February 15, 2015

Last year in 2014 my wife Heidi and I visited Tucson, Arizona for the first time, for her it was her first time in Arizona, I myself lived in Phoenix once many years ago for just over a year. We had so much fun and enjoyed the energy of Tucson so much that we almost returned home to pack up and move to the southwest. After a consultation with our children we realized it best to allow them to finish school here in the Sierra foothills in northern California’s Gold Country. As the plans to move were canceled or at least postponed, the decision was made to travel at least once a year to Arizona.

This time we are bringing the whole family to enjoy the desert and are excited about once again visiting the Grand Canyon state. For this trip there are a number of events lined up beginning with a private group reading in Saddlebrook on the 11th followed by private readings on the 12th. On the 13th I will be doing a private workshop where I teach how to develop your own abilities to communicate with animals and loved ones in spirit through telepathy. The 14th I plan on taking off for time spent with family enjoying Tucson and area attractions. For the 15th, come out to Spirits Child and join me for a group reading from 5 to 7 pm. Private appointments are available during the day of the 15th. We will be leaving early on the morning of the 16th.

Please visit http://www.charlespeden.com to secure your tickets for the group reading on the 15th at Spirits Child in Tucson.

If seeking a private in person one-on-one reading, please send in an email from the website requesting one.

Should you be interested in hosting a private group reading, a fundraiser for an animal rescue or similar event, please send in an email detailing a bit about what it is you wish to do or call 925-360-7853.

In February I will be returning to Tucson, Arizona to host a number of events and to provide in person private readings. One of the activities is a workshop designed to teach you the basics of telepathy so that you may learn to communicate with your own animals and loved ones in spirit. This blog post is for those who are attending this workshop as well as anyone else looking to develop their own intuitive and telepathic abilities so that you too can talk with the animals and the spirits of our ancestors, guides and loved ones.

With a background in computer science I have a different approach than many when it comes to the subject of telepathy and communication with spirit. I see great parallels with regard to what I have been doing on a near daily basis for the past nine years and the way that our smart phones work.

Computers and the universe communicate in binary code – a series of ones and zeros or energy pulses and flat lines.

When you burn a finger on a hot plate it takes a moment before the pain registers, why? because there is a series of hard wired pathways called nerves that travel through your finger into your hand and up your arm and finally into your brain.

Your brain processes a series of electrical impulses that traveled through your body from the original site of the injury and then you “feel” it. It’s similar to curb sensors designed to aid you in parking your vehicle – should you be equipped with such. This brings me to another point.

Our bodies are essentially vehicles for the spirit. The spirit survives both inside and outside the body and can function much the same as a human outside of their vehicle, so even if your vehicle breaks down you can still get out and walk, or in the case of spirit fly.

The brain is a sophisticated on board computer and interface for the driver of the vehicle and the brain processes/displays information in a way that is similar to our smart phones, tablets and other computing devices which employ a single screen as part of their user interface.

When you “picture” something in your mind, you are essentially employing your brains visual processing center, when you receive information from an outside source, such as downloading a video on Youtube, you are still viewing that information in the same location as the drawing app that you were just utilizing in your mind while picturing something else – perhaps related or, often times not.

Regardless of the source of the information you are processing it is all displayed in the same location, the important thing is determining the source of the information and it’s context in relation to you and your life.

For example:

Imagine that you are out for a run and while running around the local park you have a song pop into your head. It may be one that you have not heard in some time, yet is one that you associate with a loved one in spirit. You may find your thoughts drifting to the person you associate the song with and you may suddenly experience an intense upwelling of emotion, perhaps a strong or mild current of “energy” coursing though your body, like an adrenaline burst or a static electrical discharge. This may happen with other experiences too, such as smells, sounds, quick visions, physical sensations, raw emotions and even food cravings, a desire to watch a particular movie or listen to a particular piece of music. All of these types of experiences may be associated with a loved one in spirit or a present animal reaching out to you.

When one of the previously mentioned types of events takes place, stop and ask yourself a simple question – “Did I generate this piece of information?” wait for a moment and then ask “Is this a message coming to me from another individual?”

After asking each question, wait for a few seconds and see if you feel a pulse of energy associated with one of the queries versus the other.

When you do not feel anything, that is a “no” response.

A gentle or strong energy pulse indicates a “yes” response.

Please note that like the old game “hot and cold” it is possible to receive a mild yes when close to the right information, yet not quite accurate. When you get the correct information often times you will receive a fairly strong pulse of energy to indicate that you nailed it.

This approach to communication works equally well for animals who are living, animals in spirit and our human loved ones and ancestors in spirit.

Living animals need not be present to be communicated with and just like your smart phone, communication can take many forms.

It is my firm belief that a photograph and or description of the animals and or individuals being communicated with is not needed and instead is a crutch and at worst allows many to commit fraud, claiming abilities that they may or may not utilize or even understand.

Before going further, a few things to bear in mind.

Telepathy works regardless of species and native language, in other words if grandmother only speaks in Danish that should not be an issue in the least with regard to telepathic communication.

Using the “yes/no” – “energy pulse versus flat line” approach to basic telepathic communication is fairly easily, and you can quickly determine who you are engaged with and perhaps much more.

I liken the early stages of telepathic communication to be similar to two individuals who are on different wavelengths, one on the high end and one on the low end and they are trying to create a connection somewhere in the middle. At first it’s similar to using “rabbit ears” on an old TV, or for you younger readers, like only being able to text another individual and not Skype them, then as you continue to connect with each other the connection is firmed up and suddenly you have a strong connection complete with visuals and perhaps more.

When I am reaching out to connect with someone, (similar to calling someone from your smart phone) I am initially looking to receive a nuanced feedback loop if you will, similar to a person answering their phone with “yes” or similar. If you are not feeling any kind of energy pulse coming back upon saying the individuals name and asking them to connect, then they are not yet connecting. Sometimes an individual is not available when we would like them to be, just like our friends and loved ones here.

Sometimes a different party than the one you are looking to connect with will connect with you or you may simply wish to discover who that spirit is who you feel standing beside you while preparing dinner. Use the following suggested series of questions to aid in identifying who is connecting with you and why, or to simply verify that you have who you think you have communicating with you.

  1. Are you male? Are you female? So you are ____. (If no yes response (energy pulse) to your statement, then go back to your questions.)
  2. Are you human? Are you something other than human? So you are _____.
  3. Are you family? (If human) Are you someone other than family? So you are ______.

You get the idea, so basically you are double checking each response you receive and reconfirming the response you got through turning it into a statement. As the questions vary dramatically the further you proceed, it works best to just get a feel for the technique and then to apply it, rather then to type out a rigid standard series of questions.

During the workshop you will be expected to attempt to “read” another participants animals and or loved ones. This exercise always is full of surprises as individuals discover their hidden abilities to communicate telepathically. It’s like driving a car from this day and age and thinking that you are driving an older vehicle that lacks all of the technological advancements in recent years such as “OnStar” curb sensors, rear view cameras and more, and to make matters worse, you don’t even know that such technology exists, or if you do – it may not be clear that you have it in your vehicle and or how to use it. Well, I am hear to tell you that we all have this technology built into our bodies, we just need to learn how to use it.

A few things to ponder.

Those in spirit are no more removed from than x-rays, gamma rays and other invisible “to the naked eye” forms of energy.

Animals who are living can “read you like an open book” and can communicate with you anywhere in the world telepathically.

Animals can see and communicate with those in spirit.

Humans and animals are not much different any more than a Ferrari is different from a Land Rover, both are vehicles whose drivers at the end of the day have far more in common than their vehicles. Of course the drivers of each vehicle will look at the environment through the prism of the vehicle they have chosen, which will to some extent color the way they see the world and how they interact with others.

Those in spirit can see and hear everything we are involved in – they do not need to be “physically” present in spirit in order to be aware of your activities. When you establish a friendship on Facebook, you then become aware of the feed of information that they are posting, now imagine that you can view everything they are experiencing and not just what they choose to post, those in spirit see everything.

Meditating can certainly help with regard to developing your abilities. Many have been taught to meditate by going through their mind and identifying and discarding any information in there, that’s like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. You have just cleared out your inbox without finding out why that material was in there. This is a good way to clear your mind for a nap. A better way to clear your mind is to go through the information you have in your mind and ask yourself a simple question, did I generate this, or is this a message from someone else. Often times you will find messages that are waiting to be “read” so to speak.

As with going online, and or using a smart phone, there are hazards that exist when reaching out to those in spirit. If it feels “off”, stop right away and request additional protection.

Protection is important and with a few simple guidelines you should find your experiences with spirit communication to be rather enjoyable as opposed to frightening and or stressful.

  1. When you focus on someone or an event, you run the risk of bringing elements associated with those individuals or events into your home/life.
  2. Do not watch news reports about heinous crimes, or disasters and then act surprised when you start to become overwhelmed by grief or other scary emotions or even stalked by spirits of the departed.
  3. Avoid negative material in your life such as horror movies, true crime books or movies, and other entertainment that serves no purpose other than to revel in misery and fear.
  4. Do read and or watch inspiring material regarding individuals who are of great spirit and vision.
  5. Do ask for your loved ones, and ancestors to protect you.
  6. In my experience there is no true evil, simply just very twisted and hurt individuals acting out in horrific ways.
  7. Light always extinguishes darkness.

Another simple exercise you can utilize to aid in developing your abilities is while driving try and “read” the drivers around you and the actions they will take, such as when they will turn, change lanes, etc., another driving game involves “reading” the oncoming traffic and describing the color of the next vehicle to pass you or the type of vehicle.

You can call upon individuals you do not personally know and ask for them to reveal specific details about themselves that you can then research to verify a connection. Once I had a connection with a famous individual whom I was surprised to be in contact with. Having a personal “pinch me moment” with the spirit of this famous person I determined a way to verify that it was indeed them connecting with me. I asked for a detail I did not know about them, yet one I could easily research to verify. I was shown a specific injury which I was unaware of being associated with the spirit whom I was in contact with. Sure enough upon doing some research later that day I determined that the information was correct in regards to being tied to the spirit of the individual whom I had been previously in contact with.

Dreams make a good learning environment in which to learn more about these abilities. I suggest the following exercise.

Take a notepad and write down the names of those you wish to contact. Ask for them to help teach you how to communicate more effectively on a telepathic level. Write at the bottom of the note that you will remember your dream upon awakening. Fold the note up and place it under your pillow as you fall asleep, this should aid in generating a quality dream that you can recall the following day.

When coming to the workshop you will want to bring the following materials: Pens and pencils, a notepad, a pillow, photos of loved ones (Do not share with anyone until instructed to do so.) a water bottle and any small items associated with past loved ones such as watches, tags, jewelry etc., while not required for contact, they can help.

You are encouraged to read as much as you can from my blog and website to understand how I work, what to expect and to gain additional insight into how you too can communicate with the spirits of your loved ones human and animal as well as connecting with our living animals.

Please leave your animals at home.

As a psychic medium and animal communicator I have taken to Facebook as a way to stay connected with my “fans” and to teach others about what I do and to educate individuals about psychic phenomena and much more.

Since I work so much with animals I have a lot of animal rescue type folks who I am “friends” with.

A while back I went through my friends list and deleted several who had been posting fairly graphic and gruesome images of animal abuse.

I posted about it afterwards and took some flak from some who felt that it was the only way to draw attention to the abuse that is going on out there. Trust me I am aware of it, but having such images in my news feed made me hesitant to open up Facebook when my kids were around as I did not want to expose my at the time 6 year old girl to such horrific images. I took flak for that too, with people saying that I was too sheltering and that I should let my kids know such evil exists. Trust me, they know, but there is no reason for them to be assaulted by such images on a daily basis.

I strongly believe that the tactic of displaying horrific images of abuse and neglect do more harm than good.

If it is so successful why doesn’t the community that advocates victims rights it rape and violent crimes also use such techniques?

How about your news feed being filled up with images of chopped up humans, dead babies with their eyes gouged out, and burned children – with as graphic as possible images and descriptions typed up beside them. Odds are you would be very offended, and yet when animals are displayed in such a way it’s different? How???

Instead of wanting to learn more, instead of feeling the need to find out more about the person who posted such images and what their cause is, instead I un-friend them, and shy away.

While there is a serious problem with animal abuse in this country and the world in general, I feel the proper way to approach the subject is to bombard us with images of happy, healthy animals that make us want to see more, photos that show their softer side, ones that endure them to us – perhaps with a caption that tells us that this happiness is only possible provided that steps be taken to end the suffering of their bothers and sisters.

As a psychic medium who communicates with deceased animals, I can assure you that they do not appreciate the graphic images taken from their final moments or soon after their passing being displayed for all the world to see.

A side effect that most of you may not consider is the fact that animals are telepathically bonded to those who come into contact with them or with information about them.

The very act of viewing a photograph of an animal is enough to establish a telepathic bond with it, as such every time you look at such an image and think about it, you are drawing that animals attention right back to their traumatic experience and making it more difficult to move on.

Please as someone who cares greatly for the animals on this planet, if you are an animal rights activist or an animal rescue cross poster, please reconsider the use of graphic and horrific images to further your cause, I along with many others feel that it does more harm than good to use such images, not only to the animals themselves, but to your cause as a whole.

Please add your own thoughts and feelings to the comments below.

Thank you,

Recent Testimonial:

Hello Charles, 

Carly returned just in time to celebrate my birthday with me last week. 🙂 

One of the key elements in the reading was geese being fattened up for slaughter. You directed me to Slaughterville Road, and a church with a white steeple on that road. I left flyers there and planted a poster at the nearest stop sign. I drove down a hwy in the area that I’d never driven before. I felt very lost and unsure if I was headed in a helpful direction. Its importance didn’t register with me at the time, but I passed a tire shop – a place that uses an air gun/impact wrench type tool that makes noise like what Carly described to you that she could hear. Though I felt I was far away from the right search point, I planted a poster at that intersection. Later I discovered that tire shop was in close proximity to where Carly was ultimately found, only I had approached it from the opposite direction. 

The next day I got a call from a woman, Teresa, who had sighted Carly. She saw one of my posters and called to say Carly had been at her house two nights prior. Her son wanted to keep her, but her husband said no, she belongs to someone, let her go back to her home. They never realized of course just how far from home she actually was. Well, the woman and her family live in Slaughterville! I knew we were on to something, so I rushed out there to put more posters in that vicinity. As I was hanging posters, Teresa drove past and introduced herself. She had more news – Carly had been at a neighbor’s house the night before, eating from an automatic feeder! Now we have a sighting only 14 hours earlier. 

Later that evening, Teresa called to say she had Carly in her car! She had driven further east of where Carly was last seen, and found her walking down the street. This was at least 1.5 miles from Teresa’s house. 

When I arrived at Teresa’s house to get Carly, I noticed the house had dark, muted green shutters – the dark green trim you saw in the reading. Also notable is that they are building an addition on the house – another possible source of the air gun sound – a nail gun? 

Your intuitive input along with old fashioned footwork and good-hearted people combined to bring my girl home! 

Thank you so much for your invaluable help.

Volcano, CA

Volcano, CA Image courtesy of WesternMiningHistory.com

This past Saturday the 18th was my inaugural event at Black Chasm Caverns National Natural Landmark in Volcano, California. Volcano is a small ghost town with about 200 residents. At one time it was the most populous town in California, when at the height of the gold rush of the 1840’s, there was over 5,000 residents. The town of Volcano lies in the heart of Amador county which was considered to be the heart of the gold rush.

During the gold rush, some miners stumbled across a small opening in an out cropping of exposed rocks. What they found by candle light was the first small chamber of a much larger vertical caves system complete with multiple rooms, passageways and levels. What they did not know was that beneath them in the black depths below them was a series of underground lakes that when lit up many decades later would expose stunning blue marble and crystal clear waters. Among the many wonders such as incredible stalactites and stalagmites, one finds stunning flow stones and rare crystal formations.

Black Chasm Cavern

After visiting the caves with family, the idea to hold a group reading in the cave was hatched and soon after I had the location reserved and had stories about the upcoming event run in the local paper as well as being a guest of the local radio and television stations. With the event sold out and several private readings booked for after the group we finalized our menu with the caterers and booked the caves for a second event to take place on March 24th.

One of the factors driving a desire to work in the caves, was the unique properties of the environment. For example, there is no cell phone reception, so no interruptions from phones ringing. So far every group reading I have done in the past year has always had at least one phone interruption. Due to the depth underground, there is no ambient noise such as traffic, sirens or planes to distract. Since crystals and water work as amplifiers and conductors of energy, the location is wonderful for making contact with spirits.

The day of the event the forecast was for cool weather with a possibility of light showers and possible snow showers at the higher elevations. Just before leaving a cloud enveloped us and as we departed for the cave it lifted briefly. Once at the cave the check in process began as I greeted the guests and connected with my on site contact. nearly everyone made it, we had one or two no shows, but given the weather and the dense fog it was nice to see that everyone else made it.

There are no chairs in the Landmark room, and so the guests had brought pillows to sit on. I was still trying to figure out where I was going to sit during the event and as people cued up to head outside to the staging area, I had yet decided on the logistics and figured I would figure it out once down there.

A frequent question I am asked is regarding my nerves before going in front of an audience to facilitate a group reading. The funny thing is that I am never nervous about my “performance” I know that I have the ability to do what I do and to me communicating with animals and the deceased is as natural as carrying on a conversation with a person standing in front of me. So, I never worry about being able to channel the messages that come through. My concerns are far more ordinary such as, does my hair look alright, are my teeth clean, do I have dog hair on my coat, does the camera really add 10 pounds? and so forth. I also am concerned that everyone will have the person or animal come through that they want to connect with and are the lighting, audio, seating and other needs covered? I worry about the event starting on time and avoiding going over time. When focused on the minutia of details leading up to a successful event, one does not have time to worry about anything else.

Perhaps worry is not the best way to put it, rather it is more like since my energy is focused on ensuring the logistics are covered, I don’t have time or room in my mind to concern myself with any other details regarding the material brought forth during the event. In the hour or so leading up to going “on stage” I like to have some quiet time by myself. It is during this time that I thank those who have brought me so far and I give thanks for what is about to take place. I feel extremely blessed and privileged to be able to facilitate such peace, happiness and closure as I do and hope that I will never take it for granted.

Entrance to Black Chasm Cavern

After the last regular tour group of the day had exited the cave, our group headed out to the outdoor staging area for a briefing on cave etiquette. We then descended the stairs to the entrance of the cave and after learning a bit more about the caves composition and passing around a chunk of calcite crystal from the cave, we began a short tour of the cave as led by the onsite manager. The cave did not disappoint and before too long we found ourselves in the Landmark room. I took a few pictures while everyone was checking out some rare crystal formations. While walking along the last section of walkway I realized that for everyone to see me that I had to stand up across the room and elevated about 4 feet up on a landing near where the stairs entered the room.

After everyone was in position, I began the group reading by focusing on those who showed up on their own accord, and not simply because they had been sought out by name. The first connection I recall involved a dog who came through to apologize for having killed another dog that had lived in the home. The dog who came through was still living and at the persons home during the reading. After I described the dog that was connecting with us, I later found out that someone in the audience had overheard the person asking another family member, “what about the dog that she killed” and that’s when I saw a second dog coming through and I then brought them forward.

Another early connection was the image of a young native Miwok brave. I saw him with arrows stick out of his torso, he was struggling to cross a creek that was about 3-4 feet deep and about 50-80 feet wide. He was in obvious pain and shock. I felt a strong sense of sadness and anguish when connecting with him. The time period was roughly the 1850s to 1870s. Later on that evening the connection was discovered as being the ghost who was responsible for the haunting of the home of one of the audience members, they had a house about 150 feet or so from the general vicinity of where this took place. This particular case will be worked on further, with the goal of crossing over the brave.

There was a connection with a gentleman who flew top secret experimental military aircraft and there was the comment from someones aunt about how they had a man in there sights at one time and then they took a different path. The gentleman being referenced was described using his birth date and additional supporting details such as his home environment. One really cool re-union involved a couple who came through, they had both taught dance and that was among the details brought forward.

Towards the middle of the group reading, after I had switched to calling upon individuals to give me the name of those that they wish to connect with, I saw a young gentleman coming through who had died in a car crash, he described how he was the driver and then he brought forward some personal messages and advice, it was very touching and very heavily emotionally charged.

I think that the final connection was with a dog who had been “put to sleep” due to cancer. The dog was very good at communicating and after describing themselves, providing their age and what they were suffering from, proceeded to rely a few touching messages for their people, providing some much needed closure. After the final connection, we headed out of the cave and after arranging to meet everyone back at our home, we caravan’d back home and proceeded to treat everyone to wonderful food and the opportunity to connect with similar like minded individuals.

I was unable to attend the after party upstairs as I spent the entire time providing private readings in my office downstairs. I do understand however that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the group reading and after party turned out to be a great success and I am very much looking forward to the next one on March 24th. We went all out with having a diverse menu, decorations and even had a chocolate waterfall. Everything was cave themed for the most part. I was very excited to be able to include my Mother’s birthday into the party and she was presented a cake and all the guests sang happy birthday to her … I was in the office doing a private reading, otherwise I might have photos to share from her blowing out the cake.

Black Chasm Group Reading March 24th 2012

Black Chasm Group Reading March 24th 2012

Curious about Black Chasm National Natural Landmark and you want to learn more, visit www.blackchasmcavern.com.

Black Chasm was the inspiration for the underground world of Zion in the Matrix movies, initially there was a desire to film in the caves, however due to logistical obstacles associated with shooting in such a fragile and cramped environment they instead created a set modeled after elements found within the cave.

Poster for Group Reading event in Feb. 18th at Black Chasm Caverns

On February 18th of 2012 a first will be taking place at Black Chasm National Natural Landmark.

A group reading with a local psychic medium and animal communicator, Charles Peden (myself) is scheduled for 5-7 pm on this first Saturday after Valentines Day.

Never before has Black Chasm hosted such an event and this will be a first for not only myself, but for those in attendance as well.

The plan is to meet at the cave in Volcano, a “gold rush era ghost town” located in Amador county just about ninety minutes east of Sacramento, CA. After a brief introduction and quick tour of the caverns, we will assemble in the Landmark room and for the next hour and a half I will be bringing forth messages from animals (living and past) as well as the spirits of our human loved ones on the other side.

The first portion of channeling will be what I call an open channeling session where we will not ask for individuals to connect with us, rather I will look to bring forward those who would have not been asked about – this takes care of what I call “line jumpers.” The second half of the group channeling session will involve me calling upon each individual physically present and asking them who it is they wish to connect with and what their message or question is for them.

To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to connect with someone connected to them, I am limiting the seating to 20-25 individuals.

The February, 18th 2012 event is fully booked, the next one is scheduled for March, 24th 2012 with more details to be made available in the near future, including how to obtain tickets for the event.

Some back story regarding the location and the idea for holding such an event in such a location.

Soon after moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to the Gold Country in Amador county, we discovered that we lived about ten minutes from a stunning cave. I have nearly always had an interest in rocks and minerals and growing up I was a bit of a rock hound. In addition to collecting rocks and minerals I was fascinated by caves and considered them to be quite adventurous as well as somewhat romantic – in the sense of outlaws hiding their loot in them and so forth.

When I was around 6-10 years old I recall visiting Sea Lion Caves in Oregon a few times and was struck by their size and their beauty. The sea caves were cool, but they were cold and smelly as well as very loud as they are home to a large colony of sea lions. Later on around 11 or 12 I stumbled upon some small caves while exploring the forest around our home near the Oregon coast and while small and relatively unremarkable, I did find the blade of an old Bowie knife in a cave and that was a very cool thing for a young boy like myself to find.

I never did get to explore or visit a cave that had stalactites and stalagmites as well as crystal formations and underground lakes and rivers, so when we moved close to such a cave I knew that it would only be a short matter of time before we visited it.

Our first visit to the caves was nothing short of spectacular, the formations were incredible – it was even better then I dreamed it would be. As a kid when I pictured caves, none of them came close to what my family experienced in Black Chasm Caverns. Now when we have out of town visitors, it is one of our “go to” activities and it never ceases to disappoint.

On of my last trips there, I really enjoyed how quiet it is and how incredible it is to simply take in the energy of the caverns. My first visit I was so worried about getting the right photographs and was marveling at the sights so much that I was not able to simply sit in one place and just take it all in. In subsequent trips both my wife and I began to feel a real connection with the caves energy.

Heidi, (my wife) called the company that runs the cave tours and discovered that they would be okay with an after hours meditation group being brought into the cave. So I called the company back and told them exactly what I was planning on doing – to my pleasant surprise they were receptive and so a date was chosen and I began to notify my clients about the event. After the local media picked up the story, all of the space for this first group reading has been booked and I have already picked a date for a second group event in the cave.

As you can see in the photo above, there are incredible crystal formations within these caverns. The stalactites and stalagmites are stunning and “Zion” in “The Matrix” movie is modeled after some of the features found within this cave.

The Landmark room is where the group event will take place and is pictured below.

When the cave was first discovered by “white men” it was during the gold rush of the late 1840’s. At first miners damaged the very first cavern, having no idea of the size of the cave or of it’s true beauty they took some of the stalactites and stalagmites as well as some of the other formations for themselves. After looking for gold in the cave and finding none – in the small area that they had access to, the miners began charging others a pinch of gold dust to view the sights underground. This continues to this day, however now the fee is $14.50 per a person for a tour, though they may still accept gold dust, should you have any to offer to them.

While the native population of  Miwok’s were aware of the caves presence, did not use it for anything. Less then four miles from the caves is North America’s largest grinding rock. This location was utilized by the Miwok to grind their acorns into flour for food. As a hole in the rock became too deep to work effectively, they would scoot over a few inches and begin a new hole for grinding.

Now back to the cave … so the cave has crystals (several varieties) and it has multiple chambers. The cave also features underground lakes which are incredible. As you proceed through the cave to the Landmark room, you will pass over one of the lakes which is just visible when you look down into a chasm. The lake is the most incredible color of blue, due to the blue marble that is in the water.

Below are maps of the caves known features, you can see the Landmark room is at the end of the tour area, the rest of the cave is off limits to exploring.

You can click on either map above to view them larger. So, as you can see, we will be surrounded by crystals, in a cavern that is just above several lakes, talk about a conducive atmosphere for channeling messages from spirit. The crystals have an amplifying effect upon the energy in the room and the water does as well. The perfect silence, no traffic noises, or planes overhead will be very welcome.

After the group reading at the caves, those who wish to stay for a private reading or who just are not ready to call it an evening, will be invited back to my place in Pioneer, where with catering from Two Alan’s catering, we will enjoy some food and beverages.

Since the cave is a unique location that is very fragile, there are some basic ground rules and things to consider.

Do Not Touch any of the cave features or walls, the cave is still growing and the oils on our fingers can cause serious stunting of any further growth where we touched a feature. The cave has a walkway that is on the edge of the chasm, dropping anything into the chasm will result in immediate removal from the cave as well as requiring the staff to rappel down into it’s depths to retrieve whatever may have been dropped.

There are no restrooms in the cave, do not drink plenty of fluids before going in. Leaving the group will require an escort back to the surface in order to use the restrooms.

The cave is 57 degrees year around and so you will want to dress accordingly.

There are no chairs and chairs cannot be brought in, as such it is advised that you bring a small pillow to sit on for the event.

Cameras are suggested as you will want to document this experience and if lucky you too will get some great shots of some of the wonderful features in this cave.
