Your mind is activated by the energy of spirit. That, in turn energizes the brain. The only reason you retain memory is this: your brain is activated to be the vehicle of the mind. When my physical body dies, Melissa’s brain can’t recall any information. But the spirit of Melissa has every bit of information she experienced, sent during her life through the link between her brain and her mind.
That is the main reason intuitives and mediums can contact spiritual information. It is now in the Universal Mind. Many believe mediums talk only to the dead. Well, a medium is a connection between the physical and the spirit, also known as the “go-between”. Yes, mediums do contact the spirits of people who have died, but they also can contact the spirit of someone still living. It’s the energy field or aura of the spirit around the physical body that is tapped.
