WHAT SPIRITS WANT US TO KNOW -
As I wrote in my book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," many spirits have given messages urging their loved ones and everyone to treat everyone equally, help others, welcome others, discard fear, to not hate people who are different from them, to accept everyone regardless of what religion or non-religion they are, to accept people of all colors, nationalities, sexualities, race, or gender. Everyone is EQUAL. Everyone deserves peace, love and happiness.
SOME WAYS TO IMPROVE YOURSELF -
If you think you're racist (and you know if you are), try to make friends with a person of color. If you're homophobic, befriend a gay person (although you likely already have one in your circle of friends and don't know it). Be KIND and look at the world from someone else's perspective.
SPIRITS GET IRRITATED WITH BAD BEHAVIOR -
Spirits get irritated and extremely disappointed in people when they use their religions to divide, spread intolerance and hatred. Spirits are disgusted with the way some people mistreat children, animals, gay people, minorities, women, spouses or partners. There is NO excuse for being hateful, and spirits warn the living that if they are, they may very likely find themselves trapped on Earth for all eternity as an Earth-bound ghost - unable to communicate with their loved ones in spirit.
HATRED & BAD BEHAVIOR LEAVES YOU TRAPPED IN THE AFTERLIFE-
Being a ghost is like being in an isolation prison cell where no one can hear you or help you unless you fortunate enough to encounter a medium who will take pity on you and help you cross over to join your loved ones in spirit.
THE NEW YEAR'S MESSAGE -
SO, a word of caution going into 2017 - TREAT EVERYONE EQUALLY.. Don't hate, discriminate, mentally or physically abuse. Don't abandon or mis-treat anyone including animals. (People who abuse or abandon animals will likely find themselves Earthbound after their die).
If you think your religion tells you to hate people who are of other races, who are gay or of other religions, then there's something WRONG with your religion. (I have 2 neighbors who treat me and others like dirt because of their religion. I pity them).
BE A HERO TO EVERYONE - including and especially strangers. We all love reading good news stories about gestures of kindness. Be that person who extends kindness to all.
I'll end with a quote that sums up how spirits want us to be: "Be the person your dog thinks you are."
