Learn to Connect with Loved Ones in Spirit

This past weekend I was sightseeing with a friend, celebrating the 4th of July holiday. While we were taking pictures with our iPhones, she asked, “Do you know of a way to zoom in all directions, rather than just vertically?” She ran her finger across a slider bar on the screen. 

 I replied, “Yes, you just swipe the screen with two fingers in a pinching motion. Don’t use the slider bar.”

“Oh, wow, that is so easy!” 

Problem solving at it’s easiest. She just needed a little more information. 

 The most pervasive issue I see with people who have suffered a loss is a lack of knowledge about how a loved one in Spirit can and will communicate with them. Too often, people just want a medium to give them that stunning validation, rather than working to connect on their own. But when you rely upon an outside source for your validations, you're missing the beauty of a loving connection that is always available to you. 

 A few years ago I was in the really uncomfortable position of having hundreds of people on a wait list for a private session with me. It was a ridiculous waiting period for them and a stressful situation for me. I do not want anyone waiting years for a much needed connection and relief from grieving!

 I began thinking very seriously about the best way to help others. What did I really want to do with my ability? I realized my most passionate interest lies in helping as many people as possible learn to recognize the connection with a loved one who has passed, on their own—with no medium present. It’s the old parable of, “Give a man a fish, he eats for the day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” 

 I want you to be forever able to feel the connection to a loved one who has passed, not just during the few minutes we might spend together. 

 So I decided my efforts would be focused on writing and hosting group events for people to learn more.

 The biggest myth about mediumship is that mediums “talk to the dead.” Sure, you can talk to anyone, living or passed—but the strength and clarity of the connection, or lack of it, will greatly affect how you perceive their replies.  A medium communicates with a living spirit, and it’s nothing like having a live conversation. There are no ghosts to see, no faint whispers to strain to try and hear. 

 The very best thing newly bereaved people can do is educate themselves to the fullest extent possible on the ways their loved ones communicate with them energetically. This means reading books and attending group events with many mediums to see differences in how the information is received and interpreted. It’s also tremendously helpful if you take up a spiritual practice of awareness, such as meditation. When your mind is quiet, the signal from your loved ones tends to be stronger.

Last year I wrote three in-depth articles explaining the basic steps to recognizing the connection.  These are still available on line (links below).

Your loved ones who have passed may not come through every time you try to contact them. But they’re around you—and the messages I’ve gotten from them, without exception, have been loving and kind. They want you to know that they can see you, they love you, and they are there to support you. And you can begin to recognize the signs from them as you acquire more information about how your connection with them works—at your own rate, without any hype from television shows or the “I’m scared of ghosts” drama.

 As always, if you have questions after reading these, you can get in touch with me. Why not submit your question for my video blog?  But I really do mean it when I say on my web site, “I’m here to help.”
