Ancestor worship is a wide-spread belief system, in both primitive and sophisticated cultures. Ancestral healing unfortunately gets very little attention these days, even though some of our patterns and energy imbalances may well stem from our genetic pool.
My first exposure to the concept of communicating with our Ancestors occurred many years ago, during initiation into the Southern African culture of divining and healing. During my training to become a Sangoma*, in a remote area in Southern Africa, time was always put aside for offering prayers to, and for consulting with the Ancestors. My mentor taught me how the Ancestor energies affected their still living relatives, and how, in most African cultures, they are seen as being our link to the spirit world.

The area where I live is famous for being haunted. In fact, our “Asylum 49” was featured on popular paranormal television shows like Ghost Hunting, Paranormal Investigation and Ghost Adventures. This notorious old place is thought to be one of the greatest Halloween venues to visit on this side of the country.
Asylum 49’s haunted structure takes up about half of the old hospital. The other half of the hospital is the only nursing and hospice home in the county. Asylum 49 is only open to the public from September 1st to October 31st, but in that short time they raise a lot of money. After it was featured on Paranormal Investigation, tourists and paranormal investigation teams started visiting from all over the world. Asylum 49 is also available for private tours in the off-season. Read the rest of this entry »
During a four-and-a-half hour surgery I had a near-death experience. I remember clearly going toward the brightest white light that I have ever seen, and haven’t seen since. It was a tunnel with a bright light at the end of it. My beautiful angel, Shashunda, was with me the entire time.
When I excited the tunnel, my deceased grandparents and great grandparents were there, along with every deceased pet I had ever owned. They all were happy to see me, but then my great grandmother, Emma, told me I needed to go back.
I felt so happy, positive and beautiful that I really wanted to stay. Emma kept warning me that if I didn’t go back, I would have to stay before my time. She told me about the grandchildren I would have one day and how cute they would be. She said, if I stayed I would miss out on spending time with them and watching them grow up.

I have passed on endless messages of reassurance to my customers from their loved ones on the other side. The focus in most mediumship readings is typically on reassuring those left behind, on this side of the veil, that their deceased loved ones are actually very much alive and doing well. The dearly departed often let us know that they are unencumbered by any discomfort of a physical or emotional nature they may have experienced prior to their crossing.
Yesterday, I did a reading for a customer who received a profound message from her father. It made me think how I had not really been feeling my own father’s presence recently. That is, not since the final group gathering of my psychic development circle over two years ago, prior to my move to Spain. In that final group session, my dad communicated how I had been talking to his photo that very morning, just a few hours earlier. I blushed as the rest of the group laughed at my embarrassment. Spirit loves laughter, and that was so typical of my dad to come through with funny comments during our psychic circle. Read the rest of this entry »
I was recently asked if there is a difference in the process of transition to the spirit world when many people die simultaneously, compared to when they transition individually? Is the death process different when there is a mass loss of life?
This question may have been prompted by the increased awareness we have these days on social media of natural disasters, as well as other large scale tragedies caused by wars, plane crashes or acts of terrorism.
Souls passing as a group is a topic I recall discussing with my classmates at the Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Research, many years ago. Jeff, one of the men in our group, was a well-known platform medium, and he had a fascination with the subject of ‘Group Karma.’ Read the rest of this entry »
Some of the questions mediums are frequently asked are: How will I know when my loved ones are around me? How do I know if my loved ones are okay? Are my pets okay? Where do people, or pets, go when they cross over?
These are all very good questions and each psychic medium usually offer answers based on whatever the spirit world communicates to them individually.
Everything is energy. We are all energy, pure energy. Energy cannot be destroyed, it can only change form. Therefore, we never die; there is no death. When we no longer need the body, our energy merely takes on a new form. What some like to call Heaven or the Hereafter is just energy in a different form. Read the rest of this entry »
There are many ways to obtain the same result in spirit communication, as many roads will take you to the same destination. Using the psychomanteum is one way to reach out to the spirit world. It is a device to help a person communicate with the other side, including departed loved ones, pets and spirit guides. The prophet Nostradamus used a similar reflective device to experience out-of-body travels into the future as indicated in Dr. Raymond Moody’s book.
Typically, the psychomanteum is an enclosed structure or chamber made of black cloth or wood, with a chair on one side facing a mirror on the other side. Some people also use a red darkroom light. A person sits in the chair gazing into the mirror, while relaxing enough to achieve a light trance state. In this altered state of consciousness it is easier for one to see visions reflected in the mirror. Read the rest of this entry »
There are many places around the globe that often, for seemingly unexplained reasons, appear to have an amazing energy draw. One such township is in the beautiful setting of Fort Langley in British Columbia, Canada. People have been coming to this small area for many years and may be at a loss to explain why exactly they are compelled to visit this area time after time.
Aside from the fact there a number of antique shops and quaint stores in Fort Langley, there is also an air about the town that almost suggests a magic and a connection with times past, but not entirely forgotten. The town boasts many older Victorian homes and situated right on the main strip stands a majestic library that forces one’s eyes to be drawn in that direction as a matter of course. It was from this very handsome structure that a massive psychic fair was held each year by a spiritual, self-motivated entrepreneur. Read the rest of this entry »
