Paranormal Q and A: How do your medium abilities work?

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

QUESTION: How do your medium abilities work? Can you see or hear the spirits, or is it just through their manipulation of physical properties?

ANSWER: Mediums are not all the same. We all have different abilities. Some hear or see ghosts and spirits, Others just sense them. I hear, sometimes see, feel, sense and have even smelled scents from them. I often sketch out a ghost whenever I go on a paranormal investigation (and so far, every sketch I made has been confirmed as how the ghost appears to the homeowner). They also telepathically talk with me, or show me things. So, I get messages in a variety of ways. Another thing many ghosts or spirits do is let me experience their pain of death (not to that extreme of course), but enough to let me know what they died of.

Q&A: Cat Won't Enter Room with Ashes

 As a medium who deals a great deal with pets, it's easier for me to understand pets who are

in spirit as well as those living... and how spirits affect the living animals. Here's a question someone sent me about their cat's avoidance of a room with ashes of a loved one.

QUESTION:  My daughter's cat was obsessed with my dad and wouldn't leave him alone whenever he was staying at home with us. He passed away 2 months ago and we have his ashes in his bedroom since he came back home to us the cat refuses to go in there even though whenever he wasn't with us when he was alive they went in there. Does that mean anything??? 

I'm worried that dad isn't at peace and that's why the cats are scared of going near him 


Your cat senses your dad's spirit from time to time in that room, and is confused and scared because your cat can't smell his scent. It's confusing for a pet to see a spirit (as they can) but have no sense of smell (which is harder for a spirit to generate, as it requires more energy). 

Please know your dad is at peace. Sometimes, however, the residual energy in someone's ashes act as a beacon to draw them back temporarily for a visit whenever someone who loved them comes into the room. In this case, the love your cat shared with your dad is enough to draw his spirit back for him to say "hello."  Just ask your dad to not appear to your cat in that room. He just needs to understand that the cat can't make sense of his spirit. 

You could also move the ashes out of the room for a day or two and see if the cat will stay in the room. The ashes also emit a small amount of residual energy, which may also be sensed by your cat, even if your dad's spirit doesn't show up. That energy may also unsettling to your daughter's cat. Either way, your dad has crossed over, and the cat just can't make sense of a spirit without a scent.

Paranormal Q and A: What are some ways having a career as a scientist has changed your perspective towards metaphysical studies?

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

Energy: Credit: Massage magazine

QUESTION: What are some ways having a career as a scientist has changed your perspective towards metaphysical studies? 

ANSWER: It's all about energy. physical energies and emotional energies are all part of the paranormal. The law of conservation of energy states that Energy cannot be destroyed only transformed, and as I write in my books, the energy within us (think of measuring brain activity of little electrical impulses fired by neurons) couples with our memories, personality and knowledge and we make a conscious choice to stay Earthbound as a ghost, or cross over as a spirit.

So, having the scientific background enables me to have a better grasp on energy, and how energy can be used to give signs from entities that include a physical touch, a noise, or temperature change.

Spencer the dog Sends 2 Signs to his Mom!

Earlier this month, Bridget wrote me to ask about whether she acknowledged a sign from her beautiful dog Spencer who had passed. It was a sign! In fact, Spencer sent two signs to his mom and one was in a very personal place he had visited with his mom. 

 Bridget said that November 11th was two years since Spencer passed. During the week of the anniversary of his passing,  she was at her mother-in-laws house on Cape Cod, and a caregiver came to visit. The caregiver showed up with a dog she had fostered and now has adopted.  The dog's name is Sully and he looked just like her dog Spencer. 

Dogs will lead us to other dogs that look like them to let us know they are still very much around us in spirit. 

Bridget said she broke down with happy tears and loved on Sully as much as she could . She said it was amazing.   

Spencer wasn't done though! With the help of a human in spirit, Spencer dropped a special coin to let his mom know he was along on a ride. Bridget said "There was a penny I found next to the drivers side of our car. The penny had the date 2002 on it , the year he was born." Even the location was a direct and personal link to Spencer. It's important to look for those personal connections. Bridget said, "I found the penny after coming out of a hotel on our way to upstate New York . It was the first time we stayed there without Spencer with us. It was raining so hard but I felt the need to pick it up anyways."

She said, "Looking back since Spence's passing , everything you share has been true. The signs that they give us are there we just need to be open to them. It really is amazing how the love and the bond still goes on . It’s beautiful actually. Thank you Rob "

Your Dog's Spirit is Training your new dog- Learn what spirits do in Pets and the Afterlife

Are you grieving after the loss of your dog or cat?  These books can help you work through your grief by showing you how their spirits are still very much around. One of the ways pets in the afterlife communicate is by training your new pet to do some habit they had. You can read about that and other signs in Pets and the Afterlife 1 and 2. 

The love we share with our pets never dies, and there's proof that our pets do communicate with us from the other side, just as people do who pass. I'm a scientist, medium, author and paranormal investigator who has had many experiences with ghosts and spirits, both pets and people, who have communicated messages that helped prove their identity. I've written Pets and the Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2 to teach people how to recognize the signs from their pets in spirit. 

Pet parents like me think about and mourn the loss of their pets often. Sometimes the grief feels inconsolable. One way to work through that grief is to understand that our pets are around us in spirit from time to time and visit us. You just need to be able to recognize those signs. In my two books I explain many of the ways that pets communicate with the living, to convey their presence. 
I've received emails from people around the world who have confirmed signs from their pets and have received comfort knowing their pets are very much around in spirit from time to time. 

Both are available on Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle.: https://tinyurl.com/y8l6alq4

Q&A: Can I Separate Some of My Dad's Ashes?

Here's a question about the separation of ashes. This person wanted to put some of her dad's

ashes in a keepsake and wondered if it was okay. Here's the question and my response.  

QUESTION:  My Dad recently passed away Aug 5th 2018.. My sister and I want to keep some of his ashes and spread the rest in the ocean where he loved to be. Will our Dad be at peace if we keep some of his ashes? Can they be separated? Thank you. 

 MY REPONSE: Yes, the ashes can be separated. They really are just remnants of your dad- and your dad's spirit is alive and well. Often people in their wills ask for their ashes to be spread in different places they liked. In spirit, it really doesn't matter to them where the ashes go- because their spirit will be around you.

Alex Matsuo's: 15 Things Paranormal Investigators Should Stop Making a Big Deal About

As a paranormal investigator and a medium, I've run into many of the things that my paranormal colleague Alex Matsuo talks about in her latest blog. Today's blog shares Alex's blog. You can find her page at: https://alexmatsuo.com/. Here's the blog she wrote about 15 Things Paranormal Investigators Should Stop Making a Big Deal About


15 Things Paranormal Investigators Should Stop Making a Big Deal About

This might be my most controversial blog to date…well, maybe. This is something I’ve talked about with other members of the paranormal community, and I managed to compile this list. There is a lot going on in the paranormal community. But these fifteen items seem to be something that remains consistent.

1. Egos

This seems to be an ongoing problem in the field that continues to get worse. You would think there would be more openness on the Island of Misfit Toys. What’s more, the things that drive people’s egos are ridiculous things like, “We’re on YouTube.” Yes, so are millions of other people. Or, “I’ve been on TV.” Great, so have a bunch of other people. It’s one thing to have confidence in yourself and the work that you do. But when people start ostracizing, excluding, and being hurtful to others because they’re “too good” for us regular folk…because they’re on YouTube, they’re “young”, or they’re “going places”, then that becomes problematic.

Weird timing, but a few days after I drafted this blog, I was sent this video of a gentleman who was basically told he couldn’t investigate with two teams because he was too old, and no one ever heard of him even though he had been in the field for so many years. I’m sorry, what? That’s ridiculous. YouTube doesn’t make you an instant celebrity, nor does age have ANYTHING to do with skills in the paranormal. Also, not everyone is trying to gain notoriety or celebrity status in this field. If I meet someone with decades more experience than me, heck yeah, come sit at the table and let me pick your brain while I buy you a cup of coffee!

2. Social Media Following

Influencers will tell you that social media following doesn’t mean ANYTHING anymore. It doesn’t mean you’re popular. Likes and follows can be bought these days, and you can tell when a page or profile does this. If you’re going to pay to grow your social media following, put money into Facebook and Instagram ads. The likes and follows you get from that will be genuine followers who will respond to your content. If a page has 300K likes and followers, but they only have an engagement of a few dozen; they bought their likes.

3. Online Classes

Man, when someone is offering an online paranormal class for a price, people lose their minds. Words like “scammer”, “someone trying to make easy money”, and “fraud” start coming out. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with online classes. They can be useful. Now, if they’re offering a certification, then I raise an eyebrow. But, as someone who develops courses and eLearning as their day job, do y’all know how long it takes to make a course? Let alone a full out class with modules? Also, how expensive it is to give it a platform to live on? It takes time. If you don’t want to take the class, then don’t. But don’t demand that the instructor offers their expertise for free for the sake of “anyone can learn.” Go find someone offering their expertise for free. They’re out there. Yes, anyone can learn for free. If someone wants to pay for a class, it’s fine. Keep scrolling and move on.

4. Getting on a TV Show

This sort of hits on my first point. This drives me nuts. It really does. Why? Getting on a TV show isn’t the end-all, be-all in this field. I see folks get almost rabid if a new face gets on a TV show. Their experience is questioned, people wonder if they’re professional. Then there’s all this complaining about how there are people who have been in the field for decades who deserve their own show. Okay, here’s the deal; paranormal reality TV isn’t marketed to seasoned paranormal investigators. It’s marketed towards regular people who have no idea what the ghost hunting world is about. Personally, a lot of the shows I prefer to watch are on YouTube and Amazon Prime, and other more independent platforms. But, do you know what this means? You can create your own paranormal show! Don’t wait for the mainstream networks to make you an offer.

5. Para Unity

Don’t get me wrong, we should all treat each other with decency and respect. But, I’ve noticed that the people who yell, “Para unity!” the loudest are often the ones who treat others poorly. They steal material, gossip, put people on blast for no reason, and constantly air their drama. I’ve been asked to do some pretty awful things for the sake of “para unity.” Truth be told, I don’t believe we should be rewarding good behavior that we should already be doing as decent human beings. Don’t be a jerk. That means you shouldn’t steal other people’s images or videos. It’s not fair to keep building your platform on the hard work of others and give credit where credit is due.

6. Differing Opinions

Okay, I will out myself and admit that this is something I’m still working on. If someone disagrees with you, or doesn’t think that your evidence is showing a ghost, it doesn’t mean they’re attacking you. They won’t think any less of you unless you start personally attacking them. I’ve seen people put others on full blast and start doxxing their personal lives because they disagreed about an orb in a video. There is a lot of ego in this field to the point where folks are causing harm and heartache to others. It needs to stop.

7. Acronyms

Acronyms were cool back in the early 2000s, maybe in the 2010s. But, acronyms are kind of old now. Plus, I’ve seen some really weird team names for the sake of spelling out G.H.O.S.T. or P.A.R.A.N.O.R.M.A.L or S.P.I.R.I.T. It gets confusing too, and it can be hard to brand that. Do you know how many GHOST teams there are with that acronym? A lot. Too many to count.

8. CCTV Video

I’ve been seeing CCTV as the “end all be all” factor for paranormal evidence, and honestly, it’s not. It’s faulty. It lags, it freezes, and it makes things like raccoons look like demonic gnomes. Plus, CCTV footage can easily be manipulated. Unless I have a personal tie with that CCTV security system (it’s mine), and I can track what was captured and it’s hard to take anything on the internet at face value. I’m seeing more and more paranormal compilation videos on YouTube that are obviously fabricated, and it’s disappointing.

I know some will fight me tooth and nail on this, so I’m probably preaching to the choir since my regular readers align with the same thoughts as me. This is my opinion, and if you disagree, I promise I don’t hate you. Confession: I was a photographer before I considered myself a paranormal investigator. I knew what orbs were before I realized people called them ghosts and spirits in the paranormal community. Orbs are actually covered in a lot of manuals for cameras. It’s dust, moisture, bugs, dander, basically explainable. Yes, dust can look like it’s going through walls if it’s going in and out of focus. Bugs can look like angels or fairies on camera. Yes, you can see faces in orbs thanks to the pareidolia effect.

Does this mean I don’t believe in orbs? No. Another confession: I’ve seen orbs I couldn’t explain. But I saw them with my naked eye. They emitted their own light. And they didn’t float the same way as dust. Orbs in photos and videos don’t emit their own light, they’re reflecting light. That’s a big difference.

9. Apps

Not all ghost hunting apps are created equal. I suggest that you research apps before downloading them. Anything that’s sold as a “ghost radar” or “ghost detector”, you should look for something else. Some of the better ghost apps include EchoVox, which is an ITC tool. Personally, for me, I’m hesitant to use any apps since our phones aren’t equipped to detect and gauge the environment. Also, any app that lets you insert a photo of a ghost is a big NO.

10. Skeptics

When I say skeptics, I mean the paranormal community needs to stop the mindset that skeptics are bad. They aren’t. They’re fantastic. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely some skeptics out there who are total jerks. But, that doesn’t mean that all skeptics are that way. There are many fantastic ones out there who are just as curious about the paranormal as the rest of us, and often, they are looking to have that experience. The difference is that skeptics are hardcore critical thinkers, and need something more solid. They hold the paranormal community accountable and they are a valued asset to the community.

11. Demons

Not everything is a demon. Sometimes it’s a really negative human spirit. Other times, it’s elemental. Sometimes it’s nothing at all. It’s interesting how those who don’t believe in demons don’t seem to have an issue with them. It’s all about mindset and what energy you’re putting out there.

12. Religion

There is more than one religion in the paranormal field, and they are all bring something of value to the table. To me, all religions are valid because it goes back to intention and mindset. I’ve seen cleansings and blessings tied with other religions that were just as effective as Christian methods. As I mentioned in the point about demons, it goes back to your intentions and your convictions. If you’re certain that a Christian method will work, it will.

13. Ouija Boards

I don’t understand the hate against Ouija boards. Yes, I know people associate them with demons. Yes, people have had negative experiences with it, but people have had negative experiences in other areas of their life that they keep going back to. Furthermore, I don’t understand the venom that comes from people who speak out against the Ouija board. We’re talking personal insults, and even lowkey paranormal drama. Do these folks not understand that their hatred of the board and attacking others is just as negative and evil as the Ouija board (or so they think)?

14. Celebrities Joining the Field

This is something I’ve always been fascinated with, especially after it was revealed that Stormy Daniels was working on her own ghost hunting show. So many people have had paranormal experiences, and it should be no surprise that celebrities have had them too. If they want to join the paranormal bandwagon, let them! The more the merrier. There is a lot of gatekeeping in the field, questioning experience and professionalism, It needs to stop. Especially when someone who isn’t famous shares similar life experiences as a celebrity, and they see their lifestyle and choices under attack as a reason to not be in the community.

15. Facebook Groups

I love Facebook groups. They are such a wonderful way to connect with other like-minded people. I can share my content and have amazing conversations with folks and get awesome perspectives. But, each Facebook group is like its own little universe, and some people think they’re gods in little ponds. There are millions of paranormal Facebook groups out there, and there should be a shift in focus to cultivating the community instead of trying to constantly grow numbers, competing for admin/mod status, and booting people over disagreements. It’s just Facebook, y’all.
