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.

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.

If interested in developing your own abilities to communicate with spirit and animals, you may consider taking advantage of the new one-on-one training and development sessions now being offered over the phone.

Over the years Charles Peden has refined his techniques and developed a great ability to communicate with animals living and past, and the spirits of our ancestors and loved ones who have left us for the spirit realm.

Based upon his experiences and aware that other people were having similar experiences, yet were experiencing difficulties with understanding what was happening to them or how to manage and control the abilities, Charles has decided to mentor and coach those seeking help with understanding and/or developing their own abilities to communicate more effectively with animals and/or those in spirit.

All of us are different with regard to our abilities and our strengths and weaknesses. While it is impossible to place any type of guarantees as to what your abilities will be like after receiving instruction and coaching from Charles, you can be assured that you will have a far better understanding of such abilities, how they work and how to utilize them.

At present each lesson is tailored to the individual, as such there is no formal class structure, rather individual coaching and training on a one-on-one level with a professional psychic medium and animal communicator.

It is very important that I make it clear that I did not actively seek out nor try to develop any kind of psychic or intuitive abilities prior to utilizing them. I was born with them and between the ages of five to seven I suppressed them due to getting in trouble for “making stuff up” and “lying” to others. I would claim to see things that people such as my parents did not see and I was then punished for it, thus suppressing all of my abilities, going through a difficult childhood that was impossible to understand and going through the majority of my adult life with no belief nor interest in anything that dealt with the supernatural, abilities to communicate with the dead and or animals, plants and more … that just did not mesh with societies view of reality which I now embraced having forgotten my early childhood.

For myself, my awareness of my abilities did not develop until after a ghost appeared in our home and walked right through me. The ghost triggered or sparked a rapid unfolding of my abilities. The very first time I saw her I could make out all the details of her physical form, I could “hear” her and felt her emotional state as she passed through my body. It was as if she had jump started my dormant abilities. It felt like going from zero to sixty very rapidly. After having the ghost walk through me on January 24th of 2006, I found myself chatting up other ghosts in the area. I remember how excited I was to go to a historical location nearby and discover another spirits presence, just like the one that was now residing with us at our home. Soon I discovered I could communicate with those who had crossed over, I channeled a conversation with my wife’s grandfather who had died many years prior, I never met him and she had told me little if anything about him. The fifteen or so personal details that came through were all verified including one that required a call back east to her grandma.

Early on one of my primary spirit guides made himself known to me and that relationship has developed nicely over time with him providing much in the way of insight and advice. After becoming aware of my abilities I was discouraged by my guides to read much in the way of how to develop my abilities, they told me that they were in a better position to teach me how to communicate with that side than someone on this side. For example … there was this recipe for meat loaf that was handed down through the generations and while the daughter was watching her mother make it, she asked “why do you cut the ends off?” her mother replied that she had no idea, but that was how her mother did it and so that is why she did it that way. A few weeks later the daughter was at her grandmothers and asked her why she cut the ends of the meatloaf and grandmother said that it was because her baking dish was too small for the recipe and rather than reduce the recipe, she found it easier to simply cut off a little bit of the ends of the meatloaf prior to sticking it in the cooking dish.

So … back to learning how to use these abilities, (which we all have to some degree, but most of us have suppressed) one perfect example of why working with my guides to develop my abilities was so useful is that unlike the vast majority of animal communicators I do not require a photo to connect nor a description. The reasoning essentially is that animals communicate telepathically, monitor their humans pretty much 24/7 and when you are speaking with someone capable of telepathic communication with them, they will know it and engage in conversation, should they choose to. So if you can communicate telepathically with an animal it would stand to reason that the animal could describe their physical features to you, hence … why use a photo?

One of the best things my guides did for me was to create simulations within the dream world that allowed me to practice using my abilities and working through various scenarios and difficult situations. These dreams would usually happen right before a real world example of the issue would arise during a reading or in the course of “normal” life. This process of training and learning in my dreams really was helpful and aided me in grasping a greater understanding of my abilities.

In order to develop your own abilities I would suggest that the first thing you do is to establish your intent. As we are not working with the physical world, many of the techniques involve the use of the mind or thoughts as opposed to physical actions. However, before declaring your intent to develop your abilities I would like to address a few issues.

Opening up your abilities is not for everyone, before you put forth your intent to develop your abilities, think very carefully about what you are looking to do, by opening up in this fashion you run the risk of dealing with unsettled and angry earthbound spirits, any of your family members who have passed and whom you did not get along with … animals that you have known in the past may come to you. You will discover that privacy as we think it exists is truly a joke and does not exist at all. If I had a dollar for every surprise visitor to our home, I would be a millionaire, or close to it by now. If a particular event has captured the worlds attention, you may feel a pull to be drawn to the story and you may feel compelled to obsess over it until a resolution has been brought forth.  While driving down the highway you may suddenly flash upon the scene of an accident where lives were lost, and then when you look back it will be gone, though the victims may be in your car, (in spirit form yet displaying their wounds). Many of the “problems” that come with opening up to your psychic and intuitive abilities can be mitigated through the use of effective protection techniques and the development of relationships with spirit guides, and guardians.

So … you still want to develop your abilities … read on. Declaring your intent to develop your abilities will assist you in aligning your energies in that direction and in assembling a team of guides on the other side with the intent of developing your abilities. Simply sit down and write out your intentions, speak the words in your mind, something simple such as “I wish to develop my psychic abilities so that I may communicate more effectively with those in spirit. At this time I am requesting that my spirit guides make themselves known to me and I am asking them to assist in developing my intuitive abilities. Thank you in advance.” Something similar to that will suffice, no need to make it complicated, and remember that when you make requests of your guides and the universe, that you have to be sure to be clear as to what you are asking for as you are usually taken quite literally.

After declaring your intent and requesting your guides to assist you, you can move on to actually working with psychic energies, it should go without saying that it is best to try this in a quiet and meditative places free from outside disturbances. No need to meditate for hours or anything rigorous like that, a few minutes at best is what is needed, though more time may be more beneficial, to a point. We will start with something simple. In order to communicate at this level, you must be able to feel psychic energy … it feels very much like a small amount of adrenaline coursing through your body, like a gentle electrical shock … kind of like the goosebumps feeling but not scary or hair raising. Some people refer to the feeling as waterfalls. This feeling will be used as the basis for our rudimentary telepathic or psychic communication. When you feel the energy, that is a “yes” … when you feel nothing, that is a “no”. The whole process can be likened to binary code, the series of ones and zeros that make up the basic building blocks of all computer/digital communications. Just like with binary code, through this series of simply yes and no responses you can eventually “read” whole blocks of code and make sense of it as opposed to having to only work with ones and zeros. Once that happens the information that you initially were reading only as a simple yes or no may be expanded into full audio with visuals and more … which is where I operate in most of my communications with spirits and animals.

I suggest starting with something simple such as a favorite animal companion, if you do not have your own, see if you can borrow one from a family member or friend. Start out be telling the animal what you are going to be doing. Tell them that you want to chat with them and that you want them to answer your questions with a yes or no response. You do not need to have the animal physically present. You do not need a photo of the animal. You want to start with questions that you already know the answers to, this will establish a baseline for your communications. One great way to do this is to say something such as. “animals name”, are you a cat? and if you feel a gentle electrical discharge or adrenaline burst in your body, that is a yes. Then ask the animal the opposite … are you a dog? and if you get no response … and they are a cat, you can then go back to the question that gave you a yes response and double check it. Ask the animal again, “are you a cat?” and if you once again get the adrenaline burst/electrical discharge, you are well on your way to communicating with animals and spirits. At this point simply proceed to ask several additional questions that you already know the answers to, double checking the responses as you go along and then you may begin the “real” conversation by asking questions that you do not already know the answer to. This technique applies to not just animals, but both ghosts and spirits who have crossed over … and more.

After working with an animal that you know, you may want to branch out and work with a co-workers animal or someone else who has animals that you do not know anything about in advance. If you find someone who has animals and you do not know anything about them, you can use the above techniques to connect with the animal and ask questions about the animals physical appearance. When you can walk up to a stranger, ask the name of their animal at home and then describe that animal to them, it not only proves that you can talk to the animals, it is a lot of fun. When I go out to eat I enjoy playing with the wait staff, it’s fun to ask them the name of a favorite animal at home of theirs as they are taking your order and then describing that animal to them when they bring your food and or drinks out.
