When I first started working with Spirit, everyone in my life thought I had turned a corner. Going from a sensible ecologist, to someone who worked with ghosts. Someone who, rather than taking a regular path through life, had decided to abandon everything and follow the commands, wishes and orders of the dead.
There were those in my life and still are, that feel I’m a little bit like Joan of Arc and the lore of her tale - listening to mysterious voices in my head and following their direction . . . blindly.
This isn’t true, and sometimes I feel, it’s not really worth explaining to others who hold that belief of me.
Even still, there’s a huge misconception about what Spirits are doing hanging around on Earth.
- Do they have unresolved problems?
- Are they angry about something?
- Do they refuse to admit their time on Earth is over?
- Are they spending all of eternity haunting the pants off everyone?
- Do they need help from us on Earth to cross over?
- Do they need to have a message delivered?
- Do they need my help?
And I’ll be honest. Most deceased individuals I come into contact with do want to interact with on some level with a living being, especially one who can and actively does see, sense and feel them. Especially with someone who can relate.
I’m a medium. Which means, I can sense, see, feel, hear or otherwise pick up on those in Spirit, whether they are in the Light, or not, and simply still here, on earth.
If you’re a medium, too, guess what! Everyone knows about it!
Even if you haven’t admitted it to yourself, if you’ve ever turned your back on a dark street because you thought someone was behind you, walked into the kitchen because you thought you heard a noise, or double checked the movement of something in your house that no one touched. Spirit knows that you have the ability to perceive them.
It’s kind of like hanging out with a 5 year old boy. He might, in order to get your attention, try a variety of tricks, tactics and techniques. And the very first thing that he notices as a remotely successful tactic, he’s going to keep going with! If screaming gets you to turn around, guess what, more screaming until you finally give in.
And Spirit, including, ghosts, earthbounds, angels, guides and loved ones, know they can get you to give in eventually, if they simply keep trying. If you’ve noticed Spirit before, in any capacity - I’m sorry - but it’s already too late - the word has been spread and all of those on the Other Side know you might be an option.
An option for what? For my help?
No, for your attention. Those in Spirit, including those still on Earth as Ghosts, don’t always want you to do something for them. They don’t always want you to help them cross over or deliver messages or do some last final thing before they can cross over. Sure, this is sometimes the case and there are special mediums, special spirit communicators, called Rescue Mediums, who assist with those in Spirit who do need help with something.
But not every Spirit wants something from you.
Here’s a short list of what those on the Other Side might want when they try to get your attention:
Just to be noticed for once
To participate in physical world life again in some way
Help you with something they noticed you need to know about
To point out something important to you, such as a detail, an oversight or a clue
To let you know they are simply around for support, if you need, such as a grandparent, friend or parent who are crossed
To have someone to talk to or a companion in the physical world, just as you enjoy companions in the Spiritual World
If they are earthbound and have missed their opportunity to cross over, they may want or need assistance in crossing over
If they know someone you know personally, they may want you to deliver a message for them
There are a variety of reasons as to why a Spirit may make themselves known to you and only a few of the possible scenarios involve them actually wanting you to do something for them. In many cases, those in Spirit, are wanting to help you as well. And in many other cases still, being a Spirit, still on Earth, can get kind of lonely. Just as always being in a crowd, but never having a friend, can get lonely. Sometimes, those in Spirit, are simply seeking companionship.
The only way to find out is to reach out and ask.
