Spirit Awareness

What Are Your Levels of Awareness?

Everyone has some kind of intuitive ability. Everyone is aware, on some level, of spirit; they are aware of those who passed away hovering close by; of impressions of people, places and things. Everyone has feelings about, or knows certain events before they happen.

Becoming intuitively aware is the main reason to develop or unfold. This awareness helps with personal and spiritual growth and understanding.

The only reason you may not be aware of things intuitively is that your life-style may have squeezed intuition out of your awareness. It is still there, but you may be so overcome by your duties in this world, you are not paying attention to the soft murmurs of your inner self.

It is easy to get wrapped up in the physical world. Society readily stresses the physical and mental components of our lives. As a result, the spiritual aspect of life has been diminished.


As humans, we live in three different levels: body, mind and spirit. Leaving out one section creates an imbalance. Not having enough time for one of these means your life is lacking one-third of its existence.

Life is not just the day-to-day events. It is a complex maze of experiences and learning how to deal with them; impressions and expressions, feelings and emotions, physical interactions with people, and making sense of it all.

When born, humans are fully connected with spirit and the inner self. Over the next two to three years, young children become deprogrammed from the spirit side of life and programmed into the third dimension. Most things known on the soul level is stripped away as they are indoctrinated into the physical dimension of earth.

Parents and loved ones begin their mission to help the child understand what earth is all about. The child becomes more distant from their inner soul understandings. Soon the true self is just a dream or image almost lost in the transition into the physical. “…the day of death (is) better than the day of birth,” according to the book Ecclesiastes 7:1, from the Old Testament. This has been commonly expressed in the saying “weep at a birth, and have joy at a death.” This must refer to all the good, although misguided intentions thrust on a baby. Eventually, the child loses all conscious contact with the strongest energy there is. Joy at death refers to flowing back and reuniting with what was known, but lost. Why did we forget? It was the human thing to do. But now, we realize there is something to remember.

Since we had a mask put over our eyes when we entered this world, we need to take time to reconnect with our spirit selves. That is why it is good to gather friends with like interests to sit together for unfoldment.

Negative Energy Cleansing: The Loving Way

House Cleansings

I have been asked several times recently about clearing a house of negative energies or spirits. Although there are many ways to accomplish this I feel obliged to share the information that was given many years ago about this cleansing.

I do not profess to be Native American in any way, shape, or form. But I have learned some of the teachings, as well as other cultures dealing with cleansing sweeps. American Native culture is not the only one that uses cleansing for energetic purification.

The Greeks, for instance, many years ago burned sulphur and other minerals after fasting and silence to bring a cleansing about for ceremonial purposes. They say this pulled the veils between the worlds to facilitate clear communications with spirit guidance and knowledge.

As I understand, if you are cleansing with sage alone, then all you are doing is sealing in the vibrational energy already there. So allow me to offer this alternative as one of the proper ways to clear energies from a home —
Before the Cleansing: Sacred tobacco is one of the most sacred of plants for Native people. It is used as the main activator of all plants. Tobacco is offered before picking (and in some cases before using) plant medicines. When you offer tobacco to a plant and explain your reasons for being there, the plant will let all the plants in the area know your intentions, why you are picking them. Tobacco is used first as an offering for everything and in every ceremony. (In Native American ceremony, you would offer tobacco to the Elder leading the ceremony, along with an honoring gift. This announces your intention to the Elders.)

* Cleanse and purify yourself, before proceeding with any clearing. Then continue in a state of Love and Gratitude.

Step 1. Using Cedar (shavings), go through your house from the front door, through each room, saying your prayers or intentions, inviting all energies and vibrations that are lower than yours, and not compatible to your home to leave in love. Suggest they find a more suitable location for their highest interest. Bless them on their ways. As you go through your home, lead your way through to the front door, which intends the entities to leave the space. (Be sure to include all closets, basement, etc.)

Step 2. Using Sweetgrass (which is usually braided), go through your home in the same manner. Now invite all loving energies and high vibrations, which are compatible to your home to now take residence if they wish.

Step 3. Using Sage, go through your home, again in the same manner, ask all loving and sweet energies to stay and protect your space. The Sage actually seals in the energy now.


(There are many ways to accomplish a clearing of energy or cleansing. This technique is one of them. I honor and respect all ways.)

The Fundamentals of Psychic Kids: The How, What and Why of Guiding Children with Psychic Gifts

Many children are coming to this world already open to Spirit and fully loaded with psychic and healing abilities. Some of them are known as Indigo or Crystal Children. Now it is our opportunity to assist them in grounding these gifts and understand how beneficial they can be.

In this presentation, we will discuss how we can be supportive parents/teachers and to nurture our psychic children. You will be exposed to awareness games, inter-active exercises, and other ways to empower your child, and encourage them to develop a close relationship with their Higher Self and spirit guides. Melissa shares how she has assisted children, teens and young adults.

By attending this presentation you will:

  • Know the four behaviors displayed early in life by children who could potentially have psychic abilities: are these the Indigo Children?
  • Find ways to help your child understand and be in control of the gift to use it properly, and create an atmosphere for your child to develop their creative and spiritual gifts.
  • Learn about children seeing orbs and sparkles, how they can create “boundaries,” and open and close their energy fields at will.
  • Understand ways to address possible fear and misunderstanding concerning what is happening.
  • Learn from Melissa’s own experiences to help understand your child’s situation, and gain exercises and techniques that will help solidify the gifts so the child will feel more confident.

Bonus Gifts

  • Free 25 page Report “Does Your Child See Dead People?” in PDF form.
  • Free guided meditation “Finding Peace and Love” mp3

Never before have so many people been called to support those who are ready to awaken to the truth of life beyond the veil. We’re about to take a huge leap together, and the first step is knowing that you have an unseen support team of loved ones, guides, and angels ready to take this journey with you.

BOOK REVIEW: Grace, Guidance, and Gifts. Sacred Blessings to Light Your Way, by Sonia Choquette

As I am writing this review, I am also listening to the CD that accompanies this book: such a wonderful tool! I am taken to a place of calm and relaxation. It follows the three sacred blessings of Spirit that Choquette mentions in her book:  Grace, Guidance, and Gifts. The CD is about 17 minutes long, and is perfect to play as going to sleep at night.

Even though I have never read any of Sonia Choquette’s books, I have studied some of her articles and exercises found on the internet and her website (http://www.soniachoquette.com).  And I have found her information on psychic abilities and intuition to be very powerful and enlightening. So it is not a surprise to me that this book would be such a great asset to spiritual study.

Many of us today are self-taught Light workers. That is to say, there are many people who have not studied with a group of people under the tutelage of a spiritual teacher. And since there are so many books and resources such as this one, it is easy to have your own home study. I have encouraged many of my own psychic development students to have sacred time for themselves every day. This helps to raise the personal frequency of the energy field (aura). In doing so, it is easier to access your personal spirit teachers, guides, and angels. But more important, it helps you to access your own Higher Self.

Choquette’s Grace, Guidance, and Gifts is a superb way to create or supplement sacred time and spiritual self-study. By using the book every day, you continue to contact Source through the Higher Self to receive Blessings in your life. She has the book divided into three sections: Grace, Guidance, and Gifts. With each section, there are prayers, a morning blessing, mantra for the day, and a personal message to speak out loud. Each section has about three weeks’ worth of daily study, and you can open the book at random to access each day. Or follow through from one day to the next taking in the book, step by step. The book is not meant to be read straight through, but to be savored as you progress through your studies.

If you are considering starting your own sacred time and studies, wanting to have some spiritual discipline to your life, you would very much benefit from this book. However, her understanding here includes much of the Christian belief. So know ahead of time, if you are opposed to that particular teaching.

“I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts!” Ghostbusters and Dan Aykroyd

 Guess what? There are whispers of a new Ghostbuster movie, and it looks as if it is in the works. But somehow is taking longer than usual. Not sure why, but maybe producer/director conflicts.

Dan Aykroyd announced a few months into 2012 that Bill Murray was not going to appear in Ghostbusters III, and at this point the film had been indefinitely suspended. Harold Ramis (who is part of the writing team with Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg) said that the four main cast members from the original film may have minor on-screen roles: “The concept is that the old Ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity”. Aykroyd said Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis felt there had to be a way to do it without Murray.

Aykroyd’s comments about Murray leaving were that Stupnitsky and Eisenberg “wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it”; they wrote a “strong first draft”. In February 2012, Aykroyd said “The script must be perfect. We cannot release a film that is any less than that. We have more work to do.”

Dan Aykroyd originally created the role of Dr. Peter Venkman (Ghostbusters 1984) with John Belushi in mind, but had to rewrite the part for Bill Murray after Belushi died. So that particular role has had a certain “strange energy” about it from the beginning.

One of the best parts of the movie is the representation of ectoplasm (the special energy used by spirits and ghosts to manifest themselves). It is represented by animated slim in different parts of the film. The green ghost (Slimer) is affectionately referred to as the ghost of John Belushi. Aykroyd grew up in a spiritualist household and was able to represent many true-to-life aspects of ghosts and the spirit world.

Alas, as of February 2012, a third feature film of Ghostbusters remains in what is known as “development hell”. Development hell refers to a period of time during that this film is trapped in development. A film takes an especially long time to start production, or never does.

Since the first movie was released on June 8, 1984 and made $238,632,124 just in the United States, and the American Film Institute ranked Ghostbusters 28th in its AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs list of film comedies, we know that it would be a mistake NOT to finish the third chapter in the Ghostbuster saga! In this case, we must assume that Ghostbusters III will be done just on time!

For those interested in Dan Aykroyd’s family history, you may want to check out his father’s book:

A History of Ghosts:The True Story of Séances, Mediums, Ghosts, and Ghostbusters,  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CDUNKW/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=123spiritualg-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B005CDUNKW  2009 by Peter Aykroyd. This book chronicled the family’s historical involvement in the Spiritualist Movement. Dan Aykroyd wrote the introduction and accompanied his father on a series of promotional activities. Aykroyd also read the introduction for the audio version of the book.

Blessings to you until my next post!

Karma and Divine Source

I like to think of karma as a way of clearing or balancing life experiences. It is a way of evening out and learning fully from the experience of imperfections. I don’t believe it is a “get even” kind of punishment doled out by the universe or a vengeful God. But it is an opportunity to understand from all points of view about situations in life.

You know, if we are so bold as to venture out and become involved in a certain condition, then we are opening ourselves up to experience it fully. It is our obligation or responsibility to complete the cycle of learning through the complete experience.

Imagine, if you will, the very beginning of everything in the universe; only the beginning.  Pretend, just for a minute that nothing else exists yet. The beginning is a place that does not recognize the third dimension as we know it.  The third dimension has not even been created.  There are no layers of existence yet. This would be the point where there was only “pure potentiality” as Wayne Dyer calls it. This is the point from which all things are created. It is the point where there is freshness, perfection and total love.  It is love without exception.   It is love without condition.

The Divine Source (or what many call God, some even refer to as Zero Point) is the beginning place of creation.  Divine Source only recognizes perfection.  So if there is experience that stems from Divine Source, then it must be a perfect experience.

Let’s think of a logical way of understanding it. Imagine a piece of paper. The piece of paper is a representation of Divine Source: perfection. We also will imagine that someone draws a mark on the piece of paper with a crayon.

We’ll say that Mary sees a straight line. But when Bob looks at it, he sees a curve. Susan looks at it too and sees a blue streak. Stan however sees a red scratch.

But in reality, there is only a piece of paper. Anything else that is added to it or embellished on it does not change what it is. It is a piece of paper.

Now, Mary still insists that it is a straight line and starts to tell her family about the straight line. Just by planting the idea of a straight line, everyone she tells about it, sees the same things she does: a straight line.

An error in perception has just begun. But the story continues, because it is already implanted in the thoughts of family. So one of Mary’s family members talks to Susan (remember, she sees a blue streak). Although see only saw a blue streak to start with, she might even begin to see it as a blue straight line.

On and on the perceptions go, always adding something else, until the original piece of paper is marked up with all kinds of colors and blotches. The piece of paper is almost undistinguishable.

The reality of the situation is that the piece of paper is still a piece of paper. It is not a straight line, or a curve or a blue streak or red scratch. The thing has not changed, only the perception of it has changed by inaccurate thinking.

This happens much of the time in life, in all societies, all around the world. Every human being starts out as a divine plan of perfection – straight from the Source.  But while living our lives, we take on agreements to access the full experience of the situations we become involved in. So we are taking on the karmic agreement. During this time other people perceive us in certain ways that generate through years and years of mistaken thought. Sometimes our family beliefs are a composite of flawed perceptions. And we lose contact with the original perfection.

The best way I see to complete the karmic agreement without having to experience the full power of it, is to accept the responsibility of the situation. Accept that we are seeing it in error, or at least, we are not seeing the perfection of it.

It is important to allow ourselves to be responsible to see the perfection and the mistake that was incurred over generations. Then we can forgive the mistake.  We allow it to be perfect again. We clear all imperfection from the experience, so it can go back to the Source concept, its original state of being.

There is a wonderful affirmation that Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life, shares with us: “I am willing to change. I am willing to forgive.” It gives us an opportunity to at least consider the possibility that there can forgiveness through responsible action.

Psychic Abilities Using Psychometry

When I am teaching a class on psychic development, I like to introduce the technique known as “psychometry” to the participants to use and they will always receive a response that is verifiable. Psychometry is a form of psychic divination using the sense of touch. You can receive intuitive impressions and information about an object, or anything connected to it, by touching it. The physical sense of touch then shifts into ultrasense™ which is the spiritual sense of feeling.

What it is:

“Psychometry is picking up or reading the energy of an object (such as keys or jewelry) by holding it in your hand. You can sense the vibrations emanating from it. The energy patterns of the object are downloaded into the reader’s subtle bodies. The memories contained in the object are accessed by the subconscious mind and raised to conscious awareness.

“The reader receives information about the history of the object. If someone had it in their possession for a long period of time, you can receive information about that person as well.

“Psychometry can be used to heighten the contact with someone’s vibration during a reading. Many readers use this
method as a tool along with their main area of expertise. It also can be used in connect with others at a distance. I have successfully used this method to assist contacting the spirit of a recently departed teenager, receiving critical information for locating the body.”

~~taken from Psychic Integrity, Ethics and Morals of Modern-Day Mystics

Psychometry is a term described in parapsychology as a psi (or psychic) ability. The person using psychometry is able to connect with and relate details about the past condition of an object or area, or events experienced by the person who possessed the object. The user could, for example, give police precise details about a murder or other violent crime, if they were at the crime scene, or were holding the weapon used. Psychometry is a type of retro cognition.

Psychometry opens the practitioner to bursts of energy and/or memories (both negative and positive) that have left imprints on an object or place. For instance, a house where a traumatic experience happened, such as a murder or suicide, may feel distinctly chilled or negative; while a favorite childhood toy or play area may feel light or positive. A place or thing may be so charged with emotions and memories that it may even seem haunted.

As we exist in an electromagnetic programmed reality – metal objects work best. This refers to keys, jewelry, etc. However, all objects carry a frequency signature. The vibrations vary and can be recognized through psychic means. When doing psychometry, you attempt to connect your frequencies with the object in question.

How to do it:

The Basic Use of Psychometry

Here is a great exercise for you to practice to get a feel for what psychometry is. It’s best to start out by yourself in a quiet, light meditative state.

Put these items in a box or basket: rocks, crystals, treebark, fabric, tissue paper, plastic, or an assortment of other inanimate objects. Everything in the universe has a vibratory rate – animate and inanimate. That is what renders its manifested form. Denser objects have slower, heavier vibrations. Thinner, softer or more porous objects have a faster or higher vibration.

Clear your mind and take an item out of the basket. Hold it in your hand and sense what it is and where it came from. The feeling you are
looking for is not a tactile feeling, but a sense or impression.

Go with your first impressions. Become aware of the different vibrations, special feelings and impressions. They are very subtle at first. So if you think you feel something, you do. Trust it and say it out loud. This exercise can be practiced at home during your meditative times.

After you get used to using this exercise, you can feel confident to move ahead and explore other uses of psychometry. In another article I will explain a more detailed approach to the practice that will allow you to share information with someone you wish to psychically read for.

Until then, enjoy your new abilities of exploring subtle energies!


Spirit Discernment: Insight into Life

When we talk about discernment, it usually is in relation to psychic and mediumship work. It has to do with recognizing the vibrational energy of a person’s aura or the frequency of a spirit entity. Everyone and everything has a frequency to their energy field. Some are positive and in harmony with your own vibrations. But some are very different or feel disruptive to your own.

To understand how a spirit entity is interacting with you is to discern its intentions. You begin to recognize whether it feels good or not. If there is a feeling of upset, nervousness or fear, you know the spirit is not in harmony with you. On the other hand, if you have a sense of empowerment, serenity, and love, then the spirit is in harmony with you.

As a spirit works with you (especially a spiritual guide) they will pull from the love of the creator and universal understanding. The message will be uplifting and positive in nature. You will feel like light and love are cradling you.

But if you are receiving negative messages, fear tactics, and controlling thoughts, then you have the right and ability to remove that entity from your connection. You can either think in your mind, by saying “You are not harmonious to my vibration. Leave me and do not return.” Or you can say it out loud as well. The easiest way to judge or discern the connection is to ask if it comes from Creator, or if it was a loving feeling.

Another thought is take the idea of discernment into everyday life. Do the things of your life make you feel empowered or un-empowered? Are the situations you are in loving ones or fear-laden? Are the relationships bringing you peace or turmoil?

After you have taken stock of your life experiences, situations and relationships, then work toward balancing them so they are harmonious to you. Here again, you have the right and the ability to change things by eliminating the negative or unharmonious things, people and situations from your life.

Blessings until next time! http://www.PsychicIntegrity.com

Children Seeing Sparkles

Does your child see sparkles?

I get so many great questions, either while lecturing and conducting workshops, or through phone conversations and emails. They are so important to everyone, that I’ve decided to start posting some of them that I thought would be of benefit to my readers. 

The following is the answer to a question send to me from a woman searching the internet for information about what her young daughter was seeing: Sparkles.

I thought this blog would be a great way for many people to gain from one person’s question. By presenting the email to you along with the answer I provided, I have chosen to change names and some circumstances just to keep anonymity. The woman who contacted me, “Karen” has given permission to share this information with you. And I send my heartfelt thanks and best wishes to her and her sweet family.


Subject: Hello!
Date: Wed, 26 May 2010 18:11:18 +0000

Hi there!

I hope you don’t mind my sending this email to you. I found your name on Google while trying to research “sparkles” that my 7 year old sees.

She has been seeing “sparkles” since she first told me about them when she was only 2. She was trying to catch them…jumping up, etc. with her hand opening and closing.

I have asked her for a few years now various questions regarding these sparkles.
She sees thousands of them…all different colors….all the time. Day, night, light, dark, etc. All the time.

She is amazed that I cannot see them. She assumed for a few years that everyone could. Her siblings are teenagers and she doesn’t talk about them as freely with them, since they are skeptical about her seeing the sparkles.

She answers all my questions, freely. I did have her eyes/vision tested and they were fine. I asked her pediatrician and he said she was playing. Kind of an imaginary friend.

If I hold my open hand out, she said they go on my hand. There aren’t any “bad” ones, except she doesn’t seem to like the small black one she sometimes sees. She said they are just round and look like sparkles. They don’t talk, they aren’t “people”.

Can you help explain to me, PLEASE, what she could be seeing. Is this good or bad for her? Are they auras? They seem to be in rooms, but not “on” people, so that puzzles me. Not stronger or lighter on people, just around…everywhere.

My husband is also a skeptic, so I’m not sure what to do. I certainly don’t want to tell her anything to scare her, so PLEASE let me know if you can help me out here with what you think may be happening.

Thank you sooooo much for your time!



Date: Sat, 29 May 2010 20:04:18 -0400

Hi Karen~

Thank you so much for connecting with me. I certainly hope I can bring some resolve to you.

First of all, I feel you are very blessed to have a daughter who is open and sharing with the things she sees or witnesses. I know she is eight now, but as a two year old, she could not possibly make up something like that. Her natural responses to the phenomena is proof enough to me that it is real.

But besides that, I have known other children who see or hear or feel things other than the normal physical things we are comfortable experiencing. It is important to realize that we are all spirits. We are spirits who are really living in a physical body, experiencing the earth plane, or third dimension. Then you start to open to other possibilites. We actually are limited in many ways by our physical bodies!

Have you ever tried to walk through an open door, only to bump into the side of the frame with your hip or shoulder? That is because the true self (spirit being) saw no limitation. But the physical body really is limited by the physical doorway.

Your daughter is not seeing limitation. She sees things of a spiritual-realm nature. It is natural and normal. It exists, whether we see with our physically limited eyes or not. There is a story about the time when there were only natives living in the Americas…long before it was United States. There were men from Europe who were searching for other lands in their ships. They came to the eastern coast of America. The Indians who lived there did not see the ships because there mind had never witnessed anything that represented such a thing. It was totally foreign to them. The brain could not register the vision of the ships.

Several days passed and the leader started to notice ripples in the water…slowly then began to see what had always been there~~the ships.

Our children these days are coming into the world totally aware of the spirit realm. They see no limitation. We must be alright with that, because it shows how wonderfully our human race is evolving!

My daughter was born in 1974. She was raised in an openly spiritual environment. We taught her about communication with angels, spirit guides and loved ones who have passed away. When she was about 30 years old she reminded me that she could see things in the dark atmosphere of night. She described it as looking at a television set when the network picture was not on…gray fuzzy stuff. Only she saw it anytime at night, not when she was looking at television.

When she focused on it, the fuzz started to move and change, then take form. It would shift into animals and scenes that she recognized. Sometimes it was fearful to see, because she didn’t understand some of the things visible to her. They looked scary, like monsters.

It took a long time for me to understand what in the world she was talking about. Even when she explained it in terms I could understand, I still didn’t get it. (and I’m a spiritual medium! ) So for your husband and other older children to question the validity of the experiences, I totally understand. They just don’t “get it”.

But that’s okay. It isn’t important for them to understand. Your daughter knows you believe it, and that is enough.

I believe she is seeing ethereal energy. It is not people’s auras per se, but the same stuff that they are made of. It is just an unorganized form of that energy: pure and simple. Quite a blessing.

As she grows, she may begin to see it change and take form too. I hope she is able to continue to describe these sparkles to you, expecially as they take form. She may be the one to write the book on these experiences.

I hope I have settled some things in your mind. If you have other thoughts or questions, please feel free to write to me again.

I would love to edit your question (to change the identity) and answer to add to my blog. There are many parents with these types of questions, that I’d like to share with…but only with your permission. Is that alright with you? I will not use your names or email.

Many blessings to you and your family…

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.


“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…”
