I Enjoyed a Pint with a Ghost in an English Haunted Pub: In my book "Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation"

  I met a lot of ghosts during my two vacations in England, and wrote about them in my new book "Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation." 
  I enjoyed a lot of pubs during my 2 vacations in England, and many of them were haunted as you can imagine. In one pub, I enjoyed a pint with a ghost who continued to linger and do what he liked to do in life.    
   You can meet many of the ghosts, too, including those who linger at Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London, my haunted hotel room, Thornbury Castle, Ghosts in Canterbury, Stratford-Upon-Avon, and so much more!

Today's Tarot Tuesday with Joy Andreasen presents Wheel of Fortune

Today's Tarot Tuesday with Joy Andreasen presents   Wheel of Fortune 

Joy says : There is about to be a shift of some kind coming on the scene. The way you experience your life is about to change. Maybe your awareness is about to shift so that the life you are experiencing has different meaning for you, or it could be more of a substantial shift, one that you can feel and touch and recognize. Either way, remember that the only thing that is guaranteed is that nothing ever stays the same. Go with the flow. Breathe. Be at peace. When the dust settles, decide on your next step forward.

About the card:  Wheel of Fortune (X) is the tenth trump or Major Arcana card in most Tarot decks. It is used in game playing as well as in divination.  
DepictionIn this card, we see a revolving wheel which represents the wheel of life. In each corner of the card we see four winged creatures sitting upon clouds. These creatures represent the four elements of minor arcana.

 BIOGRAPHY Joy Andreasen is an author, shamanic practitioner, psychic medium, spiritual consultant, Reiki Master Teacher and wedding officiant.

Paranormal Q&A: What do your friends and family think of you work? Are you proud, or do you generally keep it quiet?


Each week, I'll answer a question about the paranormal, whether a general question, or one about human or animal ghosts (Earthbound) or spirits (who crossed over). Here's this week's question: 

Q: What do your friends and family think of you work? Are you proud, or do you generally keep it quiet?



A: I'm very open about my gift with family and friends. It's hard not to be when I'm also a paranormal investigator and I blog about it, and write about it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.!  Everyone is supportive.  The other aspect is that I help people, and there's nothing wrong with that!  I don't charge for any small email readings I give. I just want to bring people peace and comfort.

I'm not open about my abilities in the workplace, though. Since I'm a scientist, there are many in the science community that don't believe in the paranormal (although I believe the paranormal is all about Energy). You also have to be careful whom you tell, since some people who belong to some conservative religions think mediums "talk to the devil," (even though we don't). 


Fortunately, my ability is inherited from my mother's side of the family, so she understood immediately (although she was afraid to use it). Also, I was able to convince my brothers when I told them about a unique sign that my dad's spirit gave me during his funeral. It proved to them that I truly was talking with my dad's spirit! - I wrote about that in my book "Ghosts and Spirits."

A Blog Post from Maribeth Decker Intuitive Animal Communicator,

At the MD Paranormal Conference I met Maribeth Decker Intuitive Animal Communicator, Sacred Grove. Sacred Grove is a website and place where people and pets connect. Since I wrote two books about how pets communicate from the other side, we have a lot in common!

 She has an amazing talent and offers services to pet parents like: 
 PET focuses on endings and transitions When animals are ready to transition, make the transition smooth If people are ready to transition, let the pets know what is going on and say goodbye In addition to individual sessions, PET can smooth transitions of pets and people into/out of your family.
 Other Programs 
SOS Furbuddy
Healing Circle
UConnect
Human energy healing

 To reach Maribeth :703.259.9012 | maribeth@sacredgrove.com | sacredgrove.com

 She wrote a blog that references my books and I've pasted it below for you.

What’s the evidence for animal intuition?

Do you believe in animal intuition? The scientific and medical communities, “believe” (hah!) we should look to evidence to decide what to believe – or what is true. Seems like a good idea, especially if we have no personal experience with the subject.
When I use the term animal intuition, I mean telepathy – connecting and communicating mind to mind.

Discover the evidence on animal intuition

I’d like you to discover the evidence that supports animal intuition or telepathy. Otherwise you might miss – or more likely, DISMISS those intuitive moments between you and your pets. Which are generally delightful and fill our hearts with joy!
I’m a perfect example. My dogs practiced their animal communication abilities on me after I became a Reiki Master. But I didn’t stop to take in the delightful comforting experiences. I didn’t share my experiences with others because they were weird. Not anymore. Now their stories are part of my story.

Timmie visits me

Dog Timmie with one ear up and one ear downI actually saw a full body apparition of my dog, Timmie after he died. He was sitting in my dining room grinning at me, full of that goofy happiness that I still miss. There was nothing ghostly about him. He looked solid. And then he disappeared! “Wow, that was amazing”, I thought to myself. And I turned back to the stove and finished cooking dinner.
A few years later, I realize Timmie demonstrated 3 huge truths:
  • Our animals (their personalities – not just their energies) survive death.
  • They are happy!
  • They want us to know they still love us!

Yeah,  but that’s hearsay!

But it didn’t happen to you, so you have to take my word for it. I wish you were there. (Read more of my stories here.)
Never fear! There’s a great book you can read – “Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home,” by Rupert Sheldrake, PhD. He conducted studies to scientifically document that some dogs accurately predict, through their behaviors, when their people are coming home.
Here’s one of my favorite stories from the book:
“…Michael Joyce looked after his sister-in-law’s dog while she and his wife went shopping in Colchester, Essex, 14 miles away. He noticed that at 4:45 the dog walked to the window and sat there. [Michael reported], ‘Just a few minutes later it resumed its former position, sprawled out on the carpet. Then at about 5:15, half an hour later, it became excited and anxious again and remained near the window, waiting/anticipating their arrival. When my wife and sister-in-law arrived I said, ‘You decided to leave Colchester at about 4:45, changed your minds, and later decided t leave at 5:15!’ This was indeed what had happened.’ “
Dr. Sheldrake goes on to explain, “The evidence from these and other interrupted journeys supports the idea that dogs respond to their owners telepathically…”

And you’ll read about cats, parrots and horses, too!

Once you’re open to the fact that animals can connect and communicate telepathically, I “believe” you will pay more attention to cool telepathic experiences with your animals. Cherish them!

More resources:

I met author Rob Gutro at the Maryland Paranormal Conference recently. I’m excited to read his book, “Pets and the Afterlife – How They Communicate from the Other Side and More.”
I’m an author too. Read my bestseller, “Peace in Passing: Comfort for Loving Humans During Animal Transitions,” which has some neat stories.
And consider my online class, UConnect. It will help you connect more deeply – telepathically – with your pets.

Part 4: MD Paranormal Convention: McLean Jacobson, Paranormal Mystery writer

Rob Gutro and McLean Jacobson
At the Maryland Paranormal Convention last weekend, my good friend McLean Jacobson joined me
at my table and brought two of her books. One of them was just published this year and is a paranormal-tinged mystery that I love.

 Extrasensory Deception: Book One (Suny Davis Series) 
 by McLean Jacobson (Author) 

 ABOUT THE BOOK: Suny Davis has plenty of reasons to swear. Everyone at boarding
school hates her since she learned her social skills from hundred-year-old books. Her father’s a celebrated paranormal researcher (who might be a fake). She’s being transferred to—what?—a college for young geniuses? Her father’s infuriating (but handsome) assistant, Anthony, is assigned to babysit her. And then she’s the last to see the student who’s murdered in the (supposedly haunted) science building! But is the murderer really a poltergeist? That would give Suny even more reason to swear. When her father asks Anthony to investigate and he has the audacity to suggest she help him by using the psychic abilities he’s sure she possesses, Suny really swears! Swears to find the killer with good old-fashioned detective work. Swears not to use any of her psychic powers. Well, maybe a little…
