Whenever I do a house party on the coast of Maine, the first question most of the guests ask me is, “Do you feel or see anyone around me?” Or, “Do you see or sense spirit in any of the rooms or around the house?”
Well, to be very honest I have never been in any home or dwelling that did not have any spirit in residence. They typically hang around a house because they used to live in it, or at some time in the past they were on that property for some reason.
When I am asked to check in, to see who may be in residence, spirit will speak to me in my head, or show themselves. They also like to move objects. Why? Because they can. Often, they will move a picture off center, especially a picture of themselves, just to let you know they are around. Read the rest of this entry »
Spirits and ghosts both fascinate and frighten people. There are also the believers and non-believers, with the non-believers constantly needing proof that spirits exist. For thousands of years people have held the belief in the spirit world, that those who have died can come back and visit their loved ones, or places in which they lived.
What are some of the signs that a spirit has returned to its home or place of origin? These signs can manifest as cold or hot spots within the home, voices, footsteps, even full manifestation and ectoplasm.
Why is it that they need to return? Most spirits or ghosts exist in another, parallel dimension. They are either trapped there or waiting to be reborn, which could take anywhere from weeks to years, to millennia. Read the rest of this entry »
A friend named Laura lost her husband to terminal illness just a few weeks ago. I have known this friend for over three decades, and our friendship has been one of touching base every now and again, mainly on birthdays and anniversaries. She did let me know, however when Bill had passed.
The last time I saw Bill was about 15 years ago, when he came to me for divination – throwing the bones. Our connection wasn’t such a strong one that I would expect him to be present in my dreams within just four days of his passing. But he was there, in three of my dreams, one after the other. I gave those dreams very little attention, so the memory of them was vague by the following day.
My friend Laura has always been somewhat skeptical, even afraid of ‘the other side.’ When I had the fourth dream, still, within only a few days of Bill’s passing, I noted every detail and told her what had happened, and asked how she would feel if I shared what I felt was a message for her.

Walking into a store to do some last minute shopping, I saw an old lady walking slowly, and obviously struggling to make her way across the parking lot, with her walker. She wore a very bright pink coat and her hair was styled in a way that made me think of the 1920s.
She was definitely having a hard time getting around, slouching and not able to stand straight up, even though she was a distance behind me. I was not in a rush, and try never to be because life is much more enjoyed when we don’t feel like we have to be in a race.
Standing there for at least half a minute or more, holding the door, she stared into my face as she walked up. She seemed super happy, although it was hard for her to smile. She looked old and tired, like she may be on her final trip out on her own. Read the rest of this entry »
Whether it’s ghosts, shadow people, Tall Man with a Hat, The old Hag, or pixies, we’ve all experienced mystical beings in some form or another. Some of us have had minor insignificant encounters, while some of us deal with these entities every day. And, there are those who experience very violent encounters with some of these beings. I personally, have had my fair share of the worst kinds of attacks. And, I find myself dealing with the mischievous little pixies almost daily.
If you don’t know what a pixie is, let me explain. They are little spirit beings. About the size of a dragonfly. Some suggest they are cute little fairies, such as Tinkerbell in Peter Pan by JM Barrie. Others depict them as gruesome and very disturbing to look upon. I honestly can’t say for certain, as they move so quickly I have never gotten a good look at one of them. Read the rest of this entry »
When I facilitate a séance, it is to give the sitters opportunity to communicate with departed spirits that have crossed over to the other side, which the spirits like to call ‘home.’ Spirits often like to call the day they left the earth plain their ‘birthday’ going back home. Death is the beginning of their life in the other side, as some people like to call it. Matter cannot be destroyed it just changes form.
A séance is group session aimed at communicating with spirits. The word séance comes from the French word for seat, session or setting (from the old French seoir, which means to sit).
There are usually three to twelve people in the séance. I prefer six to eight, and if possible a mix of female and male energy. When people come to my space for a séance I have a nice round wooden pedestal table. Lighting is a personal preference. Some mediums like very little light, some like a red light, because they believe it is easier to see spirit in red light. I personally feel spirit can communicate in any kind of lighting.

Just to let you know my friend, don’t take anything for granted. The next time you plan a family trip, remember, it could become a scary ride. Yes, even road trips can be haunted.
I was born in New Brunswick, on the East Coast of Canada, and through a variety of moves over the years ended up living in the province of British Columbia, which is on the opposite coast.
There are 12 children in our family and for most of the years that I have lived in the West, I was the only sibling residing out this way. Consequently, there were many times when I would take a plane trip and head East to visit my rowdy, motley crew.
A few years back, after a four hour plane ride, I ended up at my little sister’s place in Ontario. Because my sister prefers driving, we hopped in her car the next day and she drove for another six hour trip, and we landed at my brother and sister-in-law’s home in Montreal. We spent a casual few days visiting with them, as well as other members of our clan. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people have experienced, or at least know someone who has experienced a spirit coming into their space. There are, however, those who balk and laugh at even the notion that a spirit may exist. Some people are also terrified of paranormal phenomena, while there are those that co-exist comfortably with spirits, like old friends. Which person are you?
For the skeptic, just leave them to their beliefs. It is their right of free will to see what they choose to see, or not see what they choose not to see. Many of them have experienced some type of spirit encounter, however they have buried it and fluffed it off as nothing. With the skeptic, there is no use trying to convince them otherwise, as their mind is made up. And that is their prerogative. Read the rest of this entry »
