Fun Radio Interview with New England Ghost Chronicles

Tonight I had the good fortune to be a guest on the weekly Internet radio program hosted by the New England Ghost Chronicles. I was interviewed by hosts Ron Kolek, the lead scientific investigator of the group, and Maureen Wood, the group's psychic investigator.
Ron was curious about how my career as a meteorologist/scientist works with the intuitive side as a developing Medium. I told him that I continually try and prove every message that I get, which Maureen agreed can sometimes be hard to do. Not every message makes sense immediately. Sometimes the people whom the messages are for have to think about what an object or words mean - from a spirit giving them to the medium.
We talked about how my puppy that passed, and my Dad, who also passed inspired me to write my book "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium." I shared a story about our haunted mattress and we talked about the science of energy. It was fun time, and I would love to go back on the program!

A Visit from my Aunt - First Since 1996 /Concentration

The key with mediumship is meditation and concentration, and in today's world, it's hard to find time to do those! Usually, the only time I can do them is when I'm in the shower or driving to work - and those are the times I usually get messages. Today was no different.
On my drive to work this morning I was listening to an old CD of Barbara Mandrell's greatest hits (I love older country music). The song "If loving you is wrong (I don't want to be right)" came on. That song reminded me of my aunt Tillie, because before she passed she was seeing a man who was separated from his wife and she always thought it was "wrong" but couldn't resist his charms. That man passed before my aunt did.
I suddenly received a message from my Aunt right as the song was beginning. She told me "thank you" for getting my mother's (her sister) forgiveness for the things Tillie did to my mom during Tillie's time on Earth. Back in 1996, when I lived in Kentucky, my aunt came to me as a dark figure (apparently feeling shame and guilt for those things she did when alive) and begged me to help get her sister's forgiveness. It wasn't until years later that I was able to convince my mom to give that forgiveness, and my aunt was able to cross over into the light.
My aunt let me know she's happily with my uncle Richard now, and they're happy. I loved them both very much. She showed me their old 1967 car, with black leather interior (I don't remember the make) that she and uncle Richard would drive us around in when we stayed on weekends. She and uncle Richard then started singing "Red Roses for a Blue Lady" in my head (it was a Bobby Vinton song they loved). They then reminded me of "A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation," by Marty Robbins, that they also used to sing in the car.
I asked my aunt if she was at peace, and suddenly the CD playing that Barbara Mandrell song skipped 4 times fast (that was her way of saying "yes.") The CD played fine for another 30 seconds, then I asked if she was happy on the other side, and the CD skipped again! Another "yes." I then saw some blue blouse that she showed me that she had apparently taken of my mom's when she was alive and had regrets over it. I asked her one more question (the CD was now on another song and was playing without skipping, and the CD skipped fast 4 times again, indicating a "yes!" The rest of the CD didn't skip at all, so it's obvious she was manipulating the CD player to answer me.
Whenever I received her answers, I was "forced" to smile. It was odd. But I knew it was my aunt assuring me she's fine and happy on the other side.

Ghosts and Religion

I've heard from a couple of people I know that "Christians are taught to believe that ghosts don't exist, and not to believe in mediums."
I find that all fascinating, because ghost references were scattered throughout the bible. I've looked at various websites, and the right-wing conservative interpretations of the Bible say "no." Ghosts of people who have passed don't walk the Earth. Other interpretations indicate they do. What it all comes down to is that the Bible was written by man and is not infallible, just like anything.
This is the same argument I make about pets "not going to Heaven." WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. Dogs and cats most certainly DO cross over and go to the other side. Any medium will tell you that. Any person that has had a dog or cat may be able to show signs that they've come back from the other side to indicate they're okay, just like people do. I've even SEEN my puppy that was killed standing in the light (with our 2 other family dogs who passed) when my dad walked into it in 2008. Any preacher that tells you dogs and cats don't go to heaven is lying and simply uninformed.
As for ghosts and spirits - they certainly do exist and there's a difference between them. My own aunt was stuck here on Earth as a ghost until obtaining forgiveness, then she moved on. Spirits (who have passed into the light) come back to us in our dreams among other ways. We've proven it with mediums, we've proven it with scientific equipment.
The issue I see here is that some religions have "told" people that any supernatural entity is a demon. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Yes, there are dark entities, some that are non-human, but there are genuinely ghosts and spirits that come back to communicate. Even the Vatican, who dismissed psychics and mediums now employs them. Think about it.
I found that people raised in evangelical and Baptist religions were particularly taught the all spirits were "demonic" (which is untrue). I'd like to know everyone's thoughts on this.

The Importance of Debunking


Just because you hear a creak in the house, or think you see something paranormal, it could be a house settling or some living thing that moved, or an object that resembles a former living being.
I received an email and this photo through facebook from someone who was going to purchase the house this photo was taken in. This is a picture of the attic, and the person thought they saw a ghostly dog in the attic and took the photo. If you look to the right side of the photograph, you can see that the spiderwebs actually form an outline that resembles a dog's face, but it is the spiderwebs!
Keep in mind that if you're looking for something paranormal your mind can trick you into thinking that you're seeing something. It's always good to try and debunk whatever you can. Those that can't be explained are likely paranormal!

A Woman's Interesting Water Stories


SPIRIT SHOWER ENCOUNTER - I recently met a young woman from South America who told me that soon after her boyfriend was killed, she often felt his presence while she was in the shower, like she was being hugged.
EDITOR'S COMMENT: Spirits (those who have passed into the light) can use different forms of energy to communicate with the living. Water, especially moving water is one of those energies. That's why you find haunted towns typically have a river or stream running nearby. One example of that is Ellicott City, Maryland, where the Patapsco River runs through it. Interestingly enough, I've received messages in the shower. My friend Kathy's mom has come to me while I was showering twice. I didn't see her, but she gave me messages (in a telepathic manner).

BOWLS OF WATER - She also told me that it is a custom to place bowls of water around a room after someone in the family passes away. EDITOR'S COMMENT: I neglected to ask her what country she was from... but if anyone has heard of this, please let me know. I asked why that was done and she didn't know. Perhaps it was so the spirit of the person could use the energy in water to cross into the light.

A Presence Attached to Hitler's Car in a Museum


EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story was shared with me, and it's a prime example of how energies can attach themselves to objects. I've run into this before with entities attached to a mattress or a piece of furniture. In this case, it's a car!
The Lyon Air Museum is located on the west side of John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. It was founded by Major General William Lyon. In the museum you'll find authentic aircraft, rare vehicles and related memorabilia, with emphasis on World War II.
The museum has a Mercedes that used to belong to Adolph Hitler. It was likely one of his staff cars. The interior in the front of the car is the original leather interior, also the hand hold on top of the window of the car which Hitler gripped when saluting to the crowd is intact. No one is allowed inside the car but Gen. Lyon's driver stood in the car, grabbed the hand hold as to imitate Hitler's pose which is portrayed in a poster in front of the car. He claims a strange feeling overtook him that he couldn't explain. He got out of the car very quickly.
