A Second Chance to Go into the Light

by Caron Goode

We all tend to by fascinated by what the afterlife holds. Do they cross over into the light? Do they go to a place called heaven or hell? Do they stay earthbound?

No one knows for sure what happens to people after they die, but some of the best answers to these questions comes from mediums who interact with ghosts. I have had some direct experiences that have given me first-hand information, and I have tapped into the other side many times in my intuitive work with clients over the years. Some are children, who give information that sheds light on this topic.

When we first leave the body, we retain the persona of that lifetime but eventually we cross over and get into our higher soul awareness that incorporates all the persona's we've had from all lifetimes.

From what I’ve read in When Ghosts Speak by Mary Ann Winkowski, the tunnel of light is opened at the moment of death and this window of opportunity remains open for a short while in which a soul can make a choice to go into the light or stay in the earth plane. Some people cross over almost immediately upon transitioning, probably because they were more spirituality evolved and had all their loose ends tied up. Others take too much time deciding and miss their chance and thus become earth bound.

Mary Ann is the consultant for the creators of the CBS show, The Ghost Whisperer, in which Jennifer Love Hewitt stars. Mary Ann has seen and communicated with earthbound souls since she was four years old and is known for being able to create the light and give earthbound souls a second chance to cross over. In her book, she gives several reason why souls do not cross over immediately:

• They are attached to things such as jewelry, cars, houses, furniture, or places where they lived, found comfort, or died

• They fear judgment or punishment on the other side

• They are seeking revenge or pursuing justice

• They want to protect the living

• They are busybodies who don’t want to leave

We have free will while in body on Earth, and we still have free will in the afterlife. So it’s really up to us to choose whether to cross over or stay earthbound. For souls who missed their first window of opportunity, Mary Ann says they can find a second chance at a funeral home, graveside service, or morgue where lies a body that has recently died. The passage of light that is there for that soul can be shared by other souls. This is good information to have if you are one who is visited by ghosts seeking help with crossing over.

Mommy, Who Is That Lady Standing Over There?

Most psychics and mediums I interviewed for my book, Kids Who See Ghosts, agreed that ghosts are the spirits of persons who have passed out of a body, but have not yet moved on to higher planes of consciousness. Those who see apparitions say ghosts present themselves in human form. Nature spirits (also called fairies, gnomes, elves, and leprechauns) are energy beings that children see and interact with, especially in their preschool years. Those who see them describe them as tiny creatures with seemingly translucent wings or a blinking little light with wings.

When a child sees an apparition she may ask something like, "Mommy, who is that lady standing over there?" or “What is that man doing in our house?"

Of course when adults try to see who the child is talking about they see no one, yet the child insists someone is there. They may also report seeing ghosts in their dreams, hearing things go bump in the night, having monsters under their bed, ghosts in the closet, or someone peeking in their window. This can be scary for adults as well as children. As a counselor, I know the worries parents have over helping their children feel safe in their own environment.

Don’t ignore your child's fears. It is important to her emotional development for you as a parent to eliminate such things as ghosts, monsters, and weird noises. Criticizing her about monsters or saying "there is no such things as ghosts” does not help her overcome fear. She will simply stop telling you about her experience, which may cause her even more stress.

One thing that will help reduce your child's fear is to show how calm you are about such things. Children take their cues from adults—especially their parents—and if we are upset about ghosts and strange noises, then our children will learn to fear those things too. Try to offer a logical explanation that the child can understand.

Regardless of whether or not you believe in ghosts, you can take charge of the situation. Smudge your house with sage to banish entities, do battle with the monster under the bed, or have a good, firm talk with the invisible man who keeps tapping at your child’s bedroom window. It might also help to turn on a night light in the child’s room, let her take a flashlight to bed, or play some soft music at night so she can’t hear ghostly activity.

Since science cannot prove nor disprove the existence of spirit beings, parents can’t honestly tell a child that ghosts or other spirit beings don't exist. Perhaps we should listen to our children and simply accept what they say they see.

Entity Contamination

As we approach the year 2012, more and more people are opening up to the spirit realm that has always been around us. This can be quite disturbing especially for one who has not been aware or able to interact with spirits prior to having some sort of spiritual awakening. Like the woman who called me this morning. She had found me on my metaphysical Web site and thought she was undergoing a walk-in experience.

While chatting with her I began to sense the presence of a malicious entity and knew that regardless of whether or not she was a walk-in, she was going to have to deal with this disembodied spirit. For the past six months she has constantly heard two cruel voices in her head; she has recently begun to lose her memory--sure signs that her auric field is being contaminated. I sensed that she was very sane, but also fearful, which is the energy hateful disembodied spirits feed off of.

Had I been in the mindset I was twelve years ago, I would have attempted to "cast out" these detrimental spirits or disconnect them from her, but now I know that resisting and fighting increases this kind of activity because it forces the victim to focus on them--thus giving them more power. Rather than telling her to fight or even listen to the voices, I encouraged her to shift her focus onto the light and love within her and to seek the help of her angels, archangels, ascended masters, and higher vibrating spirit guides. By standing in her own power, she gains the skills needed to manage the psychic abilities that are more than likely going to continue to increase. Therefore, it is important for her to learn to access the spiritual realm without paying a personal, emotional, or physical price.

Because I understand where people (like this woman) are coming from and I have arrived at a place in my life where I can offer comfort and methods for dealing with entity contamination, I have written a book titled Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom From the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You (ISBN: 9780982572245). This is a guidebook for empathic people who have been unknowingly carrying energetic burdens that belong to someone else. It will help readers learn to sense their own energy and let go of the psychic clutter that causes them distress. The book will be available in February 2011.
