Experiencing the Pain of George Washington Before he Passed

Mt. Vernon behind the sign for the house tour
Recently I visited the home of Mount Vernon, the home of President George Washington and his wife Martha. The home sits overlooking the Potomac River in northern Virginia, about 11 miles south of Washington, D.C. It was also there that I had an interesting, but short experience.
  Sometimes, ghosts have shared their pain with me to tell me that they still linger. This was a similar experience. 
  When I entered the mansion, I sensed some residual energy from emotion that lingered in the home. 
  Upon going into one of the upstairs guest rooms I was overwhelmed with energy, and suddenly got a sharp pain in my throat! - I wasn't sure what was going on. The sharp pain became a dry throat, and it hurt. After walking through the room into a small hallway where a docent stood I learned why I felt that pain. 
  The docent said "You are now in a small hallway, and pointed to an adjoining bedroom. She said it was the room where George Washington died. She said that he said 2 days before he died that he suddenly had "a sharp pain in his throat!" 
  So, I immediately knew that President Washington was letting me know what happened to him, and what he experienced before he died! I didn't really expect to meet President Washington that day, but it seems I did.

Joseph Ellis' biography His Excellency: George Washington includes many fascinating details about the life of our first president, including the account of the president’s death in 1799, at the age of 67.  
Swearing in of Pres. Washington- Mt. Vernon Exhibit


One morning in mid-December 1799, Washington went out, as it was his daily habit, on horseback from his home to inspect his Mount Vernon property. That particular day the weather was very cold and there was an ice storm. It is said that Washington spent five hours out in freezing rain, then returned home and dined with guests in his wet clothes because he did not want to keep them waiting. The next day he complained of a sore throat and was hoarse, but otherwise appeared well. The following night he awakened Martha to tell her that he felt a severe pain in his throat, and was having trouble breathing.

The next day his personal physician, Dr. James Craik, was summoned. Craik diagnosed the condition as life threatening, and hastily assembled a team of doctors for aggressive treatment. They bled him of five pints of blood, burned his neck, and gave him calomel, a mercury compound used as a purgative but which probably did little more than induce mercury poisoning. Finally, after several days of this torture, Washington displayed the judgment that made him a great president and told them to stop. According to Ellis: “Eventually Washington ordered his doctors to cease their barbarisms and let him go in peace. ‘Doctor,’ he muttered, ‘I die hard, but I am not afraid to go” (p.269). He expired a few hours later.

Moving out of a Haunted House? Some Suggestions

Moving out of a Haunted House? Here are some suggestions.
   Recently I responded to the following question: We are moving out of a house that we know has a ghost in it. How do we make sure nothing follows us? What should we do?
  Margaret, manager of Inspired Ghost Trackers of Maryland, gave this good advice:  I don't think will follow you, but just to be on the safe side make sure you tell them that they can't follow you and they are not welcome to go. They must stay where they are. And, of course if they do follow you then you know who to call!

  Here are my suggestions: 
Typically ghosts stay at a place comfortable and familiar to them.
*Tell them not to follow you, and stay put, or better yet, tell them to move into the light.  
*Put sea salt just outside the. front door to block them from leaving.
*Picture yourself surrounded by white light and positive energy to act as a block to a ghost's negative energy.
*Finally, think positive thoughts when departing. Ghosts feed off negative energy, so don't give them anything to cling to.

Remember the Humanity of Ghosts

   Like many people, I also watch a lot of the ghost "hunting" TV shows: Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International, and Ghost Adventures. Although its fascinating to see people use scientific equipment to prove that ghosts exist in the buildings they explore, they never take a medium with them. I think that's a mistake. Why? Because mediums can communicate with ghosts to learn why they are still there, and help them cross over into the light where they belong.
   I belong to a great ghost group, and they're called "Inspired Ghost Trackers," because they use scientific equipment to "Track" ghosts, not "hunt them." Whenever we find a ghost we also try and cross them over, because they deserve the peace of being with their families.
   I didn't always have this awareness. Yes, I knew spirits were people who passed, but earth-bound ghosts always had more of a mystery of who they were. My friend Louis Charles, author of the great book "Ghosts Need Help, Too" really helped push that awareness in me some years ago. It's an amazing book, and one that all in the "ghost hunting business" should read to help remind them that ghosts need help crossing into the light.
  Remember, ghosts had lives on Earth. They were people, too. They may have had children, spouses, pets, jobs. They traveled and worked. They lived and breathed. Now they deserve that final peace. After all, most ghost hunters will get a sound file from a haunted location that says "help me."
  Although they may initially choose to stay on Earth, they forget how to cross over and need our help to do so. They belong in the light and as part of the energy of the cosmos, not on Earth.
