Grounding Essentials for Psychics and Mediums


Question: Why would we need to center and ground ourselves if we are ascending?

Answer: I know, we are constantly trying to raise our vibrations to reach a higher frequency space. Some of us call it ascension. Or moving from the Third Dimension to the Fourth or Fifth. (As in the song, Dawning of the Age of Aquarius by Earth, Wind and Fire). But let’s think about this for a minuet ~

~ We, as Spirit-Beings, have decided to incarnate into the Third Dimension to have an Earth Experience. How could we have a physical experience if we were not Third Dimensional? To move up and out of the physical body to ascend to another dimension means we have forsaken the prime directive.

I feel we are to expand ourselves to accommodate higher frequencies while still holding to Third Dimensional Earth. Our bodies can morph or intertwine vibrations to become more than we are now. We have some of the most productive and amazing qualities as humans. And we are only using a small amount of the body/brain potential available to us.

So, how can we ground ourselves here, and still expand into higher frequencies? Here are a few of my own thoughts:

1. Komara, a way of expanding consciousness without blowing apart. Keep your feet together and arms up in a “Y” shape. This opens you to other realms and higher information, such as communicating with your guides, etc. Then stand with your feet spread out at shoulder width and arms down to your sides. This grounds your spirit in the body, making it easier to maneuver on Earth. Use both positions to keep balanced.

2. Use earthing, or walking on the ground barefoot as a way to instantly ground your body to earth. If you are worn out and exhausted from a busy day, or communing with spirit, this brings your energy back asap.

3. Understand why events happen instead of getting caught up in the drama – perspective in all things.

4. Pieces of the higher realms are leaking into our third dimension. Find out where these things are leaking without your knowledge or permission and close them or welcome depending on what feels right for you.

5. Increase your energetic awareness. When you open up to intuitive concerns, you can feel information coming in. Pay attention to it. Know when it opens and when it closes. Be in control of that by putting your focus there.
Balanced energy flows and resonates with well-being. Unbalanced energy leads to dis-ease.

6. Detect Energy from a Higher Vibration. By practicing as a lightworker, and being open to your psychic senses, you have a whole new dimension of consciousness. This is True Knowing in its highest sense.

7. Frequencies of Food, Medication, and Other Factors. In order to stay grounded be particular about the frequencies of the foods you eat. Food is fuel for the physical body.

For example, you know what happens if you download a lot of useless information on your computer. It will crash. Cheaper fuel will cause a car to run inefficiently. Food with negative energy or lower vibrations tears down the physical body and opens it to disease. It can cause problems in your subtle body system, and slow down your evolution.

Processed foods, additives, dyes, hormones, and medications can all be problems for your well being. This is the problem that the energy-sensitive Indigos ran into when they began to incarnate in Earth’s plane. Their sensitive systems were contaminated by foods that don’t resonate with their higher vibration. This is when many had reactions and health problems, such as attention deficit disorder (like an energy failure) and hyperactivity (like energy surges), leading to misdiagnosis and overmedication.

Like the new Indigos, we as adult, hyper-sensitives, our bodies cannot hold the negative vibrations of all of the garbage going in. The “old system” can make us sick. Organic diets hold a much higher vibration and thus are better suited to the transforming body and evolving psychic senses.

A high vibrational diet consists of foods that are ALIVE and that positively benefit the person, as well as the planet as a whole. High vibration means having more light, and thus less density. Consider trying a whole food one-day diet a week. See what it feels like.

Keeping yourself grounded and aware of your own vibrations is the best way to achieve your ascension process and keeping centered.

Many Blessings, Melissa Leath

MOVIE REVIEW: Ghostbuster (2016)


ghostbusters2016A
(Photo: ibtimes.com)

I have been waiting oh, so long for this next make of the classic Ghostbuster movies. After all the hoopla about second rate remakes, I have gone to the theatre and watched it in regular screen, not the 3-D version. I did not want the visual effects to overpower the way I saw it for the first time. Sometimes 3-D can be the spectacular thing and you forget the actual movie.

But before I tell you if I liked it or not, let me share with you some of the back story.

First off, this Ghostbuster 2016 is not a “proper sequel” that the Ghostbuster cult fans have been screaming for, like the two other movies from 1984 and 1989. It is a reboot. It is an entirely new version. And there is a reason for it.

The third film for Ghostbusters had been on the drawing board ever since the release of Ghostbusters II in 1989. There had been several steps of progress, only to be taken back to square one. There was no doubt that the fans wanted another one (me included). The problems came in many guises. Bill Murray, who was an original cast member for one reason or another refused to make a committed promise to the new project. Also, the death of fellow cast member Harold Ramis (1944-2014) who played the part of Egon Spengler obviously set back the development of the next movie. Different plots and themes were discussed (including one where Bill Murray’s character was transformed into a ghost, and another in which the Ghostbusters went to hell), but were always never finalized.

Check out this discussion from Melissa McCarthy about the reboot ideas: Click Here

So, Sony and Columbia Pictures decided to reboot the series. Many of the original cast members were cast in cameo roles (I love looking for cameo spots). And an all-female cast (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones) was announced in 2015. This sparked more controversy.

So, come hell or high water, Ghostbusters 2016 was on its way. And I was totally stoked.

Just what is Ghostbusters? Or- Have you been living under a rock?

Ghostbusters is a supernatural comedy. Filmmaker Paul Feig directed it and shared writing it with Katie Dippold. It was released in the United States on July 15, 2016, in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D. It’s about four women (from different live experiences) who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. It seems to follow similar lines in the plot from the original stories of bringing several people of expertise together in unusual manner (of course) to investigate paranormal occurrences, research supernatural science, and catch/contain ghostly apparitions with their untested equipment.

And, understanding as we should, that this story is purely for our comedic entertainment, we watch all manner of unusual events, wonkiness, misguided bureaucratic intervention, and pure unadulterated joy as the women of ethereal escapades ramble through our minds.

Kate McKinnon plays part of Dr. Jillian Holtzmann, eccentric (too say the least) enegineer, who successfully tests the Holtzmann’s Proton Containment Laser. She is totally her own woman. So wacky and fully in control of her super-knowledge. She is my new-superhero.

Melissa McCarthy plays the part of Abby Yates, co-author of a book which theorizes the existence of paranormal phenomenon such as ghosts. McCarthy must be my favorite contemporary actor of the 21Century. She could have totally souped-up this role, but kept her grounded and loving in nature. She could easily have been the character you wanted to hate, but instead was the catalyst that kept the women together. I believe this speaks to Melissa’s superb acting ability.

Kristen Wiig playing Erin Gilbert, who also authored the same book on paranormal phenomenon. But she felt no one took her seriously and went the road of respectable teacher at Columbia University. When she witnessed a real ghost with the others, she was on-board with the investigations. The level-headed person of the team, who always got slimed (Yeah, there was a lot of that!)

ghostebusters2016Patty
(Photo: theguardian.com)

Comedian Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, the un-paranormal addition to the team. Known because of her underground expertise in the rail system and historic knowledge of New York City, Leslie plays the role of “I’ll just tell you how it is” kind of person that helps ground the other roles. It would not have been a Ghostbuster Team without her! I consider this a break out role for Leslie Jones and you will see so much more of her. I think this just scratches the surface of her acting talents.

So what did I think?

Well, I went into this wanting it to be another great Ghostbuster film. And I knew that because it was an all-female cast, it could be problematic. But I had high hopes.

It did not disappoint me! I love it! Will go see it in 3-D now. And buy the DVD just as soon as it comes out!

Be well, my friends, Melissa Leath

Psychic Children and Dreamtime Adventures, by Shaheen Miro


ShaheenSleepingA

This article is another great addition to our “Kids Growing Up Psychic” Series

Dreams, nightmares, and other curious experiences are common for psychic children. When you are sleeping you become open, and receptive to the unseen world. The protective guards that have been thrown up now come down, and it is easy to navigate the invisible world. For the psychic child this is playtime.

Sleep is a time for the body to rest, and actually allows the logical mind to shut down, so that the intuitive self can come through. This is why most psychic children have flamboyant and other worldly dreams. As your psychic child is sleeping, he or she is exploring the levels of the astral world, and connecting with their psychic wisdom.

Some parents will fear these experiences because they feel unable to help their child. Especially when these experiences are frightening, such as nightmares, or strange visitors. But they are all natural experiences for each person, and especially the psychic child. Do not fear this, rather embrace and encourage this!

As a child, and even now I explore the levels of the astral world. The astral world being the energetic levels that make up the physical world, and beyond. There are many levels and layers of the astral plane. Some of these levels are where different spirits reside, and what we would commonly call, Heaven or the Other Side. Other levels mirror reality, and the different thought-forms that are being projected into it.

Some levels of the astral world are purely play… alternate realities created by the imagination. The dark realms tend to be places where negative thought-forms exist, and this is often what we experience as a nightmare.

Children are curious by nature, and the psychic child has a free pass to explore all the different levels of the astral world, and to be receptive to any psychic information that is being sent their way.

Energy is vibration. All vibration happens at a certain frequency. Your psychic child is vibrating at a frequency that allows them to not only access certain planes of existence, he or she vibrates at frequency that allows them to tune into infinite wisdom that is blooming in the atmosphere open to anyone who can tap into its message.

Why do we dream?

Dreamtime is a way of tapping into the fertile world that lies just beyond our consciousness. Everyone dreams to gain some kind of clarity or insight. In my experience I have found a few types of dreams.

Problem Solving dreams are dreams that allow us a creative platform to work through issues, gaining insight and clarity about whatever seems to be troubling the person. Psychic children are constantly inundated by information, thought-forms, and energy that may not be their own. On top of this they are regular children; Children who have mundane issues.

These are the types of dreams we all experience. Since we are not open enough in waking life to experience this kind of clarity, dreamtime offers us a timeout from “reality” to work through issues.

Purging dreams are a unique way to not only work through issues, but to also clear out the junk that is in our minds. Psychic kids experience this a lot as nightmares. Recall the frequency analogy. Your child is vibrating at a rate that allows them to purge these negative, or pent up energies… and often times will be followed by colorful, and frightening sights.

I always imagine these negative things existing somewhere in the Universe that contains them for safe keeping, when we have nightmares we may actually be visiting that place… thus releasing and containing them there for safe keeping.

Prophetic dreams are very common for psychic children because they are so open, that they are actually accessing the information that is happening around them. This is how they tend to know things that they shouldn’t. This can be information about the future, or a place in which they are not, or even past life information.

Astral Dreams are any type of journey that happens in dreamtime. An astral dream could take the shape of any of the above dreams. But most often this will be an experience of leaving the body, and traversing the wonders of the Universe.

Children are especially good at astral dreams, or astral projection because they are not afraid to explore, and they are more use to being out of their bodies, rather than in. This could be because they are new to the world, not quite settled into the “rules” of being here.

Astral dreams can be simple, or very complex. I astrally project often. When I astrally project it can be as simple as being in the room I am sleeping in, or visiting people who are in other places. Or they can be more in-depth, part real world, and part other world.

Dreaming is something that you cannot really explain with clear rules, and regulations. The different types of dreams listed above may overlap one another. There is no way to clearly define them. They may all be happening at the same time. But rest assured that it is a normal experience for the psychic child, and for all of us if we would allow it!

Crystals for Safe Astral Travel

Astra travel, and dreaming can sometimes be frightening to both parents, and psychic children. If your child seems to be having these dreams and you are unsure how to help, creating a safe environment for sleep will add to their sense of security.

Make sure your child has a safe room, free of clutter, or distraction. Any strange lights, toys, or shadows that may appear in the room should be avoided. Keeping things in an area specifically for play is a good option. Even having a nightlight can help your psychic child because it will be a touchstone for them knowing where they can return to when they leave their body.

Crystals are a favorite for children because they can sense their unique vibration. Crystals hold a special energy that can be used by anyone who taps into it. This can offer a special tool for psychic children in dreamtime. Especially for astral travel when your child may be wondering about it.

I suggest using a hematite and amethyst. Hematite is a grounding stone, and creates a special aura of protection. It will keep your child from floating about aimlessly, and allow them to filter through any energies that may be troubling them.

Amethyst is a protection stone, but it works in a unique way that activates the psychic senses. It opens them in a way that brings clarity and understanding. This will be good for your psychic child, as it will help them make sense of what they are experiencing without shutting them off from it.

You never want to shut your psychic child down from their experiences; this will create feelings of fear, guilt and alienation. You want your psychic child to use this gift, and to cultivate a positive connection with it so they can navigate the world fully in their spirit.

Use these stones by placing them near your child’s bed, under their pillow, or tucked somewhere safely under the bed. You can explain to your child that these are magical rocks that give them powers in dreamtime. Remember imagination is one of the most powerful tools for the psychic child.

Dream Pillows for Nightmares

Dream pillows are a special way for soothing your psychic child. Scent has a powerful effect on the psyche, and helps to cultivate certain experiences. Not only are herbs and botanicals powerful for aromatherapy, they also work with the subtle vibrations of the aura.

If your child is having nightmares or sporadic dreaming, create a beautiful dream pillow for them. A dream pillow is a small pillow filled with herbs and botanicals for a certain purpose. This can be an elaborate decorated pillow, a small square of sewn up muslin, or a sachet made of cheesecloth.

When creating a dream pillow you want to use all natural and organic ingredients. Be mindful of your child if he or she has allergies or an allergic reaction to specific plants. Clearly those are not things we want for our psychic children while sleeping.

Mix together in a small pouch the following:

¼ cup rose petals
¼ cup lavender flowers
¼ cup mugwort
¼ cup mint
¼ cup chamomile

You can mix and match these herbs as you see fit. Sometimes using only 3 of the above herbs is necessary. Once you have found the right combination, stitch up the open end of your pouch.

Hold the dream pillow and infuse it with positive intention. Intention is how we direct, and affirm our energy. Setting an intention of peaceful sleep for your psychic child will guide them into dreamtime safe and sound.

Tuck the dream pillow pouch safely inside the pillowcase of the pillow they use most frequently. You can refresh the herbs once a month, or as you see fit. This can be a fun process to do with your child as well. Pull out the art supplies and make fantastic pillows together!

Has your psychic child had any interesting dreams? Maybe a visit from a relative who has passed? Or maybe recounting an outlandish world somewhere beyond the stars?

Listen to these dreams… there is wisdom in them! And be sure to share with us. We would love to hear your psychic child’s dreamtime adventures… and maybe we can help shed light on anything that is particularly confusing.

Proof Watch Party, John Edward, and Residual Hauntings


proofHave you been watching Proof, a television program on TNT network? It’s pretty amazing, if you like to investigate life after death, and spirit communication. (Description: Following the death of her teenage son, a divorce, and a rift with her daughter, Dr. Carolyn Tyler is persuaded by Ivan Turing, a tech inventor and billionaire with cancer, to investigate supernatural cases of reincarnation, near-death experiences, and hauntings, in hopes to find evidence that death is not final.)

I was invited to a Watch Party with John Edward last week. It was very interesting idea: watch the program, follow his Tweets and Facebook posts about the program as it is shown.

He also had one of the actors from the Proof program (Jennifer Beal) with him. So you could get inside information that way too.

I do not have Tweet capability (never could figure that out!), but I did watch the posts on John’s Facebook page. And followers could post questions and comments to his page too. He commented with answers when he could.

I know how this type of thing goes, as far as the Facebook interaction. I have a monthly Interactive Discussion on a Secret Page of Facebook. It is part of my Monthly Online Psychic Development Class. Members receive a Video Packet (video lesson and guided meditation audio by me), at the first of each month. Then they watch the lesson and use the meditation each day during the month in their own spare time. Then we get together at the end of the month to discuss and question what transpired for each member.

Anyway, it is really fun to do that Facebook discussion. It moves really fast, and you have to follow what everyone is saying and respond to it. It has always been fun and informative. So for John Edward to put one of these things together must have really been fun for him and Jennifer Beal of Proof.

ghostinroomThere was one area of the program that I know was incorrect. The medium that was consulted about the haunting at the church and graveyard made a statement that I do not agree with. He said that a residual haunting was when the soul separated from a dying person during a traumatic death event. And the soul was still on earth haunting the area.

Well, the way I understand it, a residual haunting is a culmination of energy from a traumatic event creating an imprint. It is like a replay of the event over and over, but there are no spirits involved. It is only the result of such strong energy. The spirit (or soul) of the person who died is not still there haunting the place.

Now, I have only watched this one episode. But if all of them are disseminating incorrect information like this, it cannot benefit us in anyway. If you know me at all, you know I only stand for integrity in this field. Anything else is not worth my time.

I am sorry to say that I do not support this program, and will not endorse it. And it’s too bad. Because we need high standards and honest reflection of our spiritual (albeit paranormal) endeavors. Of course, I consider what I do as normal — not paranormal. But that is another article!

If you saw the program, give me a shout out below on the comments area. Let me know what you think.

Believe (TV series) –My Commentary


BelieveTV
An extraordinary girl…about to change the world.

All science fiction, fantasy, and metaphysical people should be very pleased right now! A new series called Believe has been added to the NBC television network for the Spring 2014 season Believe on NBC

The story is listed as a fantasy and science fiction, but as all metaphysicans know, the events in Believe really do happen. A 10 year old girl named Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), born with special abilities that she cannot control is the main character. Her abilities have started developing and there are people protecting her. This includes Winter (played by Delroy Lindo), who used to be associated with Roman Skouras (Kyle MacLachlan). So far, we do not know why Winter and Skoura have separated their partnership, but speculation is that there is some bad motive on Skouras’ part.

Bo is able to know what people are thinking, and part of their memory. She “receives” information quickly at times, and sometimes is totally unaware of her psychic powers. She can influence elements of nature, and instinctively knows important things as they happen. All this going on and the “bad guys” are constantly chasing her.
BelieveTV2
In order to move Bo around more easily, Winter and his associates decide to enlist the aid of Tate (Jake McLaughlin) who is a wrongfully convicted death row inmate and, incidentally, does not know he is Bo’s birth father. But they have to break him out of prison, so the beginning of the show starts with a clever approach to accomplish this.

Tate was not asked about all of this (the prison break, and becoming Bo’s protector) but is thrust into it unawares. He is reluctant to become her protector, but the two ultimately form a bond. And that connection that they build guides them to help each other as well as others. All this while staying one step ahead of the evil forces that want the girl. Yeah, I know – this sounds much like a past series called Touch on the Fox network.

Sure there is intrigue, danger, adventure, metaphysical stuff galore! But most important, I believe, is potential of our newer generation: the kids that see sparkles, hear voices, heal folks, have extraordinary ideas. This opens the potential, and allows us to imagine that it can be possible… because it is!

What to Do If You’re Going to a Seance


seanceThe whole idea of a séance can be a scary one if you haven’t had any experience with them. I was lucky enough to sit in many séances in the 1980s an 90s in the little Spiritualist church I belonged to. Visiting mediums came at different times during the year to offer sermons, private readings, and what we all waited for: séances.

Being connected with a Spiritualist church bypassed the worries of being bombarded with evil spirits and haunted by ghouls and unwelcome creatures from hell! We knew this was a spiritual endeavor and always surrounded with Light and Love, protected by our individual Spirit Guides and Angels.

But for you, who may not have been so fortunate, and perhaps have heard of disturbing tales of fear and possession, let me give you a few tips for attending a séance — just in case you ever get the chance to attend one.

How do you prepare for attending a séance? Or do you even have to do anything? Of course you do. Here are a few tips for you to think about before you plan on going to a séance:

  • Investigate the medium and sponsor involved.
    Make sure you know the medium that will be giving the séance. Are they reputable? do they have a spiritual character? I am not emphasizing religion here, rather, spirituality. The medium should have a good standing with metaphysical people in the area, and be known for producing empowering sessions. If you cannot find anyone who knows the medium, or can speak well of them, then pass this one by. The same thing goes for the person involved in sponsoring the medium and location of the event. These things all matter in the outcome.
  • Know what type of séance is being held.
    There are so many different types of séances and ways to present them. True old fashioned séances always took place in total darkness. But there are some mediums that are able to produce phenomena in the light. I have witnessed this and it is very powerful to see! This way, you can pretty much rule out fakery (and, yes, I have seen this too). Just a few of the different types are: deep trance which can include physical mediumship with direct voice, levitation, independent writing or painting, partial or full materialization of spirit bodies or apports (objects that materialize out of thin air), etc. Sometimes these things can be accomplished through mental mediumship as well.

    Sometimes mental mediums will call a séance in a circle and just give spirit messages. I do not consider this a séance, but I would call it a Spirit Circle.

  • ghostinroom

  • Do not give away too much information.
    Keep your personal information to yourself. To prove to yourself that the séance is legitimate, make sure you do not spread the word that your grandmother just passed away two weeks ago, for instance. This type of information has been known to be used to fake a séance (or reading). There was much talk about John Edward and other mediums when they had television galleries, etc. People said that there were spies in the crowd that gathered before the shows, and would collect names and stories from the audience before hand. Whether this really happened or not I do not know. I just remember the talk about it. I have always held John Edward in high esteem. I just give him as a example. So if you do not give away any personal information, you can be sure of truth when there is spirit evidence presented.
  • Raise your vibrations.
    Before you go, spend some time grounding yourself and thinking loving thoughts. Keep a positive attitude. Ask that you be protected with Light and Love and that you only receive positive and uplifting energy and information.
  • Bring your spirit loved ones with you.
    Ask the loved ones that have passed away or your spirit guides to be there and leave messages. You will get much better results if you take your spirit entourage with you. That helps the medium to connect easier.
  • Don’t cause a disturbance, be respectful.
    When entering into a séance, the medium and the spirits work off of energy. so it is important for you to be positive, and greet the spirits when they present themselves. When a spirit might greet you by saying hello, return the greeting! That is only respectful! And you get a better connection that way. No matter what is going on, even if you feel it might be a faked séance, please remain calm and respectful. There is no reason to lay blame or bring about a heavy or negative vibration.
  • Well, that should be a few great tips for you! If you decide to go to a séance or a Spirit Circle, I hope you remember these ideas.

    Ghosts and Spirits: What’s the Difference?


    After being a spirit medium for over 30 years, I’ve had a chance to understand the process of spirit leaving the body at death. Some think this is scary and paranormal, but there could be nothing more normal than our true story as Spirits being Humans.

    The fact that I can communicate with the spirits might be strange and spooky to some people. But when you have a loved one that has passed away, you want to know if they are alright. So, who you gonna call?

    I’ll be giving a lecture Sharonville Ohio Convention Center at the Victory of Light Expo[ http://www.victoryoflight.com] this weekend. [Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, 2012]. My lecture is called Discarnetes, Ghosts and Hauntings . It is on Sunday at 2:00pm in Room B. The last time I gave this lecture, I had a really excited group of attendees (75-80). They were all sitting on the edge of their chairs, and were full of questions too!

    Here’s just a short sample of what I’ll be speaking about this weekend:

    Spirits are our loved ones or other beings that have lived on the earth, but are now in the spirit world. They have gone through the entire process of evolving into what we understand as full transformation.

    A ghost, on the other hand, is a lost spirit that has not fully embraced the transformation into the spirit world. It remains attached to earthly things or people in an attempt to re-assimilate.

    Earthbound spirits are believed to be the spirits of deceased people who remain tied to the earth for a variety of reasons. Religious sects claim that all spirits are of the devil and are here to perform trickery, and lead people down the wrong path, but others declare that as we pass from this life, our sprit can remain earthbound.

    It is unclear whether earthbound spirits can see and hear the world around them. Some are able to interact with the living, but many require the assistance of a psychic or medium to communicate.

    Reasons for remaining earthbound vary, probably due to the life circumstances at the time of death. It is believed that the majority of earthbound spirits remain out of choice. Some may be confused souls seeking assistance in reaching the afterlife or have unfinished business that they feel must be completed before passing to the next realm.

    Here are some reasons spirits remain earthbound:

    1. Refusal to accept death

    2. Waiting for…

    3. Guardianship

    ~~~sorry! Can’t give it all away! If you want more, come on out to the Expo. If you are interested in ordering a DVD of my last lecture, please send me an email and I’ll connect with you. psychicintegrity@gmail.com

    Blessings to you.

    A Child’s Near Death Experience


    This story was forwarded to me through email. I almost didn’t read it. But I’m glad I did.

    You might not believe the story. I choose to believe it as real. I know these things happen. My experiences with people over the years proves to me that there is life after death, as well as near death experiences. And my connections with today’s children only strengthen my belief in this type of situation. I share it with you now:

    DAD’ S STORY

    On July 22nd I was in route to Washington , DC , for a business trip. It was all so very ordinary, until we landed in Denver for a plane change. As I collected my belongings from the overhead bin, an announcement was made for Mr. Lloyd Glenn to see the United Customer Service Representative immediately.

    I thought nothing of it until I reached the door to leave the plane and I heard a gentleman asking every male if he were Mr. Glenn. At this point I knew something was wrong and my heart sunk.

    When I got off the plane, a solemn-faced young man came toward me and said, “Mr.Glenn, there is an emergency at your home . I do not know what the emergency is, or who is involved, but I will take you to the phone so you can call the hospital.”

    My heart was now pounding, but the will to be calm took over. Woodenly, I followed this stranger to the distant telephone where I called the number he gave me for the Mission Hospital . My call was put through to the trauma center where I learned that my three-year-old son had been trapped underneath the automatic garage door for several minutes and that when my wife had found him he was dead. CPR had been performed by a neighbor, who is a doctor, and the paramedics had continued the treatment as Brian was transported to the hospital.

    By the time of my call, Brian was revived and they believed he would live, but they did not know how much damage had been done to his brain, nor to his heart. They explained that the door had completely closed on his little sternum right over his heart. He had been severely crushed. After speaking with the medical staff, my wife sounded worried but not hysterical, and I took comfort in her calmness.

    The return flight seemed to last forever, but finally I arrived at the hospital six hours after the garage door had come down. When I walked into the intensive care unit, nothing could have prepared me to see my little son laying so still on a great big bed with tubes and monitors everywhere. He was on a respirator. I glanced at my wife who stood and tried to give me a reassuring smile. It all seemed like a terrible dream. I was filled-in with the details and given a guarded prognosis. Brian was going to live, and the preliminary tests indicated that his heart was OK, two miracles in and of themselves. But only time would tell if his brain received any damage.

    Throughout the seemingly endless hours, my wife was calm. She felt that Brian would eventually be all right. I hung on to her words and faith like a lifeline. All that night and the next day Brian remained unconscious. It seemed like forever since I had left for my business trip the day before.

    Finally at two o’clock that afternoon, our son regained consciousness and sat up uttering the most beautiful words I have ever heard spoken.. He said, “Daddy hold me” and he reached for me with his little arms.

    By the next day he was pronounced as having no neurological or physical deficits, and the story of his miraculous survival spread throughout the hospital. You cannot imagine, when we took Brian home, we felt a unique reverence for the life and love of our Heavenly Father that comes to those who brush death so closely.

    In the days that followed, there was a special spirit about our home . Our two older children were much closer to their little brother. My wife and I were much closer to each other, and all of us were very close as a whole family. Life took on a less stressful pace. Perspective seemed to be more focused and balance much easier to gain and maintain. We felt deeply blessed. Our gratitude was truly profound.

    The story is not over (smile)!

    Almost a month later to the day of the accident, Brian awoke from his afternoon nap and said, “Sit down Mommy.. I have something to tell you.” At this time in his life, Brian usually spoke in small phrases, so to say a large sentence surprised my wife. She sat down with him on his bed, and he began his sacred and remarkable story.

    “Do you remember when I got stuck under the garage door? Well, it was so heavy and it hurt really bad. I called to you but you couldn’t hear me. I started to cry, but then it hurt too bad. And then the ‘ birdies ‘ came.”

    “The birdies?” my wife asked puzzled.

    “Yes,” he replied. “The birdies made a whooshing sound and flew into the garage. They took care of me.”

    “They did?”

    “Yes,” he said. “One of the birdies came and got you. She came to tell you. “I got stuck under the door.” A sweet reverent feeling filled the room. The spirit was so strong and yet lighter than air. My wife realized that a three-year-old had no concept of death and spirits, so he was referring to the beings who came to him from beyond as “birdies” because they were up in the air like birds that fly. “What did the birdies look like?” she asked.

    Brian answered, “They were so beautiful. They were dressed in white, all white. Some of them had green and white. But some of them had on just white.”

    “Did they say anything?”

    “Yes,” he answered. “They told me the baby would be all right.”

    “The baby?” my wife asked confused.

    Brian answered. “The baby laying on the garage floor.” He went on, “You came out and opened the garage door and ran to the baby. You told the baby to stay and not leave.”

    My wife nearly collapsed upon hearing this, for she had indeed gone and knelt beside Brian’s body and seeing his crushed chest whispered, “Don’t leave us Brian, please stay if you can.” As she listened to Brian telling her the words she had spoken, she realized that the spirit had left his body and was looking down from above on this little lifeless form. “Then what happened?” she asked.

    “We went on a trip,” he said, “far, far away.” He grew agitated trying to say the things he didn’t seem to have the words for. My wife tried to calm and comfort him, and let him know it would be okay. He struggled with wanting to tell something that obviously was very important to him, but finding the words was difficult.

    “We flew so fast up in the air. They’re so pretty Mommy,” he added. “And there are lots and lots of birdies.” My wife was stunned. Into her mind the sweet comforting spirit enveloped her more soundly, but with an urgency she had never before known. Brian went on to tell her that the “birdies” had told him that he had to come back and tell everyone about the “birdies.” He said they brought him back to the house and that a big fire truck and an ambulance were there. A man was bringing the baby out on a white bed and tried to tell the man that the baby would be okay. The story went on for an hour.

    He taught us that “birdies” were always with us, but we don’t see them because we look with our eyes and we don’t hear them because we listen with our ears. But they are always there, you can only see them in here (he put his hand over his heart). They whisper the things to help us to do what is right because they love us so much. Brian continued, stating, “I have a plan, Mommy. You have a plan.. Daddy has a plan. Everyone has a plan. We must all live our plan and keep our promises. The birdies help us to do that cause they love us so much.”

    In the weeks that followed, he often came to us and told all, or part of it, again and again. Always the story remained the same. The details were never changed or out of order. A few times he added further bits of information and clarified the message he had already delivered. It never ceased to amaze us how he could tell such detail and speak beyond his ability when he talked about his birdies.

    Everywhere he went, he told strangers about the “birdies.” Surprisingly, no one ever looked at him strangely when he did this. Rather, they always got a softened look on their face and smiled. Needless to say, we have not been the same ever since that day, and I pray we never will be.

    Grief, and Spirit Evidence of Our Daughter’s Passing


    Beaunet Genniere

    Beaunet Genniere Leath

     February 14, 1974~~February 17, 2010

    Our beautiful daughter, Beaunet, 36, passed from this earth just last month. She was diligent in eating a vegetarian style, only organic foods that were good for her. She spent time every day either doing Pilates exercises or walking. She loved life and acted like it. She did the things one is supposed to do to live a good, healthy life.

    But around 10:30, on the morning of February 17, I got a call from the University Hospital in Tampa. “I’m calling for Melissa or Charles Leath.”

    “Melissa, speaking.”

     “We’re calling about a patient who came into emergency this morning in distress…” [what does that mean? …distress?] I was puzzled.

    “Yes?”

    “She was brought in by the parametics.”

    “What’s going on?”

    “She died.”

    Needless to say, this was not the most diplomatic way of delivering the news that your child has died, unexpectedly. Being 1000 miles away didn’t make it any better.

    “NO! That’s not right. You’re wrong. That can’t be…” I was hysterical. Literally, hysterical. “She isn’t sick, she just was at a routine doctor’s appointment last week…there’s nothing wrong with her…I just talked to her last night!”

    The nurse confirmed next of kin information she had in her hands. She confirmed Beaunet’s birthday (just three days earlier). It was her information. But it couldn’t be.

    The story continues to unfold: Beaunet called 911 when she had problems breathing. It was around 7:00am when they got her to the hospital. She had unlocked the apartment door for them. But after they got her to the emergency room, she passed away. They worked on her for another hour. But could not revive her.

    We didn’t know anything ahead of time. She didn’t call us when she felt bad. She did what she was supposed to do. She called 911. When they have you on the phone, they try to keep you on the phone to relay information to the paramedics as they are preparing on their trip to the emergency.

    So she couldn’t call us. I feel badly that she didn’t have us there with her. Even if she called us, 1000 miles really keeps you apart from each other. There was no way we could do anything.

     But, still…I didn’t know anything. I couldn’t understand why she didn’t come to visit me in spirit. After all, I am a medium. I didn’t understand that at the time.

    I was able to call my husband, Charles. He was out doing errands. “I need you to come home right now,” I said between sobs. “Just come home right now.” I had enough sense to know not to tell him on the phone.

    As he came up the walk, I opened the door and let it out. “Beaunet’s dead!”

    The next few hours are a blur. We walked around in circles, crying, sobbing, calling Beaunet’s name…not knowing what to do. I had to go to her. We had to go. We had to call people. We had to…?

    As I cried out, “Beaunet…” I heard my dad, who passed away in 1980 say to me, “She’s here, I’ve got her.”

    It was a double edged sword. Hearing my dad confirm it, made it too real. I felt worse. Horrified. But it also made me realize she was indeed alright in the spirit. And that loved ones were taking care of her. It was all so fast, so soon, so final. It hurt like a raw sore in the core of my stomach.

    No one ever told me about the physical pain. Emotional pain is one thing. But it physically hurt. Just like she had been ripped from my stomach.

    As Charles and I were holding each other, I cried out again…”Beaunet, no, I don’t want you to go.”

    Immediately I heard her say, “But now I can sing with Michael Jackson!” Beaunet, like so many others her age, was a fan of Michael Jackson all her life. She dreamed of him, bought everything he ever recorded. But she was also pursuing a singing career. And to sing with Jackson would be the best thing ever!

    These two statements from the spirit world, were evidence that she was in good company. She was totally aware and fully in spirit. They were good signs. If I had not been a medium, knowing about life after death, I might have not heard this information. It was comforting then as it is now.

    But still…I wondered why I had not seen her after the death of the body. It puzzled me.

    We flew down to Tampa immediately, arriving late in the evening. The next day were interviews with local officials, medical examiners (death was from a blood clot in the lungs), funeral director. Finally, on the second day, we were allowed to see her body.

    This is something I insisted on. Maybe there was a huge mistake. Maybe she was still alive. Maybe this was really someone else. But most of all, if it was no mistake, I had to see my baby one last time.

    As we walked into the parlor of the funeral home, there she was, on the table, covered with a lovely patchwork quilt. It was definitely Beaunet. No mistaking. Her color was still good. Her hair soft and sweet (she had just washed it the night before).

    Her eyes and mouth were closed, of course. We saw such a relaxed and serene look on her face. We hugged her, we talked to her, we kissed her. All of a sudden, Charles said, “Look at her lips.”

    Her lower lip had separated and her teeth were showing…It looked like a smile…like she had managed to physically move her mouth to show us she was fine. This is called physical phenomena. Then I looked up at a picture above her head. It was a huge field of iris flowers. I cried.

    My main spirit guide is Iris. She always presents physical evidence for me when I need confirmation. Yes, my baby was fine. She was alright. I could finally let go.

    And at that moment, I felt like Beaunet let go too. She let go of the body. She had been hovering around the body until we could get there. All could process now.

    That is why I could not see her around me at the time of her death. She was attached to the body just enough, waiting for us to come to her. I could hear her thoughts and messages, but she was not ready to appear.

    How wonderful Spirit is to help us through our grief, by bringing such confirming and consoling evidence. It would be so impossible to deal with if there were no way to understand the transition. But in Creator’s loving way, we have resolve.

    The shock and pain is still there. If I did not know the things I do about life and passings, I think it would be unbearable. But now, we are able to work through our grief of losing the physical connection of our daughter. And look forward to the growing connection with her spirit in our lives.

    “…For nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much…”
