One of the many amazing things, about being medium is that I get to learn first hand, from the mouths, hearts and minds of the spirit people all kinds of things about life after death.
Then I get to share all that wonderful stuff with their loved ones here in the physical!
Today I want to share with you four of the coolest things that I have learned. Here we go...
1. They do not cross over alone
Even if someone you love was on his own when he passed, he was not really alone. Ancestors and loved ones in the spirit world show up in droves to help us cross over into spirit.
Case in point... recently I went to see a 92 year old friend who was in the process of crossing over. I was in her room for maybe two minutes when I started to feel high, tingly and very buzzy. Wondering if I was coming down with something I was about to leave her room so I could clear my head and regroup.
Instead, I silently tuned in to see what was going on around me. The room was FULL of spirits. All around her bed, hanging around the empty bed next to hers, standing by the window. All over! There were easily 25 spirits in that room that day. She definitely was not alone.
The spirit people frequently share who was there to meet them as they were leaving their bodies and making their journey into the spirit world. Husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, grandparents, good friends, animal companions, and many more spirit connections will show up to be present and assist the person crossing in any way they can.
I recently connected with the spirit of a woman who had never married. She showed me that when she was transitioning she was met by a very handsome man, dressed in suit. He took her hand and they were lovingly reunited in spirit.
I shared this with her niece, for whom I was doing the reading. She was overjoyed. She quickly recognized this man as the one love of her aunt's life. As a young woman her aunt had chosen not to marry him and remain single instead. She never stopped loving him and would wonder aloud in the years following if she had made the right decision at that time.
And there he was, meeting her upon her entry into the spirit world. Be still my beating heart. :)
2. They remain pretty much the same as they were when they were alive.
Did uncle Bill have a wicked sense of humor? Was mom's vocabulary stellar? Your second cousin prone to potty mouth?
The body may be gone, however, the personality lives on. Uncle Bill will still be cracking jokes in the spirit world. Mom's communication will be grammatically perfect. And, yes, you can be sure that your second cousin will put a medium into a quandary with her colorful language.
When I am talking with spirit people it is as if they are right there expressing themselves as they would have when they were in their bodies. It's remarkable really. They are still funny, prim and proper, articulate. You name it, they take all that personality with them when they go.
3. They check in on you after crossing over.
Some spirits do this right away and others take a little bit longer, but they all eventually check in on their loved ones after they have crossed over.
Many of the spirits that I have talked to share what they saw going on around them as they crossed over. They saw, even if they were unconscious prior to their passing, who was at their bedside or with them when they died.
Some spirits report that they actually left their bodies prior to the physical death. I have had many a spirit come back to sooth their loved ones' worries that they were suffering by letting us know that they were already dancing in and out of the spirit world and not in any physical pain when their physical body stopped functioning and died.
Many spirits will actually attend their own funerals! Which is a good thing to keep in mind when you are planning the funeral of your loved one and considering what he or she might have wanted. Because, hey, chances are very good that he's going to be there!
A few years ago I attended an acquaintance's mother's funeral. Just as the service was starting the mother, in spirit, recognizing that I was a medium, popped in and told me that she was very unhappy with the color of the lipstick that was chosen. She always wore pink. They had made her lips red.
At the end of the service I went up to her coffin and could see that her lips were indeed bright red. I mentioned this to her son, my acquaintance, and he told me that there had been some disagreement between her daughters on just that very topic. One daughter was sure mom would want pink, the other said red. Red won. Whoopsie...
Some spirits take a little more time before they check in with the loved ones they left behind. Some simply need time to adjust to their new spirit situation and surroundings. However, many of the spirits that I have talked with check in on their loved ones within a few days at the most.
4. They are only a thought away.
This is one of the most amazing and wonderful things that we can know about our loved ones in spirit. All we have to do is think of them and they are right there with us. I call this "thought-calling".
In fact it is our intentional thought energy that opens the door to a direct telepathic connection with them. The more clarity and focus we bring to our thoughts of a spirit loved one the stronger, more direct the connection. When we are able to do this they are better able to let us know that they are there with us.
Of course deep grief is a part of the process of losing a loved one and it is necessary to allow the grieving process to unfold. However, the spirit people have told me that when their loved ones hang onto their grief, they create a wall that the spirit people cannot get through so they stop trying. Necessary as it is, grief is also a lower vibration and spirits need higher vibrations. So they step back knowing that their loved one will "thought-call" them when they are ready.
What does this mean? If you are grieving someone who has passed, and want to connect with her try as best you can to sit quietly and focus your thoughts on that person. Rather than dwell on her loss bring your thoughts to a good time that you had together and other wonderful things about your relationship. Allow yourself to smile and feel good while you do this.
Recalling the joy of being together, and allowing yourself to feel that joy while focusing on the thought of your loved one in spirit raises your vibration. It is the absolute best way to make a connection with them.
They will come to be with you. Every time!
