The answer is that if you "hear" something in your head that doesn't make sense to you, or that you have no idea what it means, chances are you may be getting a message from an Earth bound ghost or a spirit that has crossed over.
|Left to Right: Spirit, YOU, person the message is for|
If you suddenly get a feeling that "Andrew" belongs to your friend Jenny, make a note of it. Ask Andrew to show you something personal to him, and you may be surprised at what you get. You could suddenly see in your mind a red sports car or a hammer and nails, indicating that he could've been into carpentry, home repair, or liked to build things.
Be careful not to interpret the images, though. Let the person to whom the message is for interpret them.
- I made the mistake of telling a young woman at Barb Mallon's event that I saw her late grandfather sitting next to her. I told her that he was a snappy dresser, loved wearing a hat and getting dressed up on Sundays. I told her he loved reading from his Bible. She insisted that her 2 grandfathers both died before she was young and that my message made no sense. *Days later, after she talked with her father (who was still living), he confirmed that it was his brother, or the girl's late uncle that met the entire message I gave. SO, be careful about calling a spirit a "grandfather, son, father, mother, etc." and just say that it's an older or younger female or male, maybe "like a grandfather" but not necessarily one. The message had a lot of meaning to the woman's father, because he was missing his late brother.
