Join Us Thursday to Talk about Some Strange Spiritual Experiences

Our next group call is December 19, 2013 at 2 p.m. Central Time.

Many people who see spirits are also very empathic or energy sensitive. Some are walk-ins. If this topic interests you, there are three ways you can participate in this discussion from the comfort of your own home:
  1. Online: http://InstantTeleseminar.com/?eventID=48786726
  2. By phone: (206) 402-0100 Or check for local number at http://InstantTeleseminar.com/Local Pin Code: 187842#

Even if you are not a walk-in, we believe this discussion will be of interest. A lot more starseeds and walk-ins are coming to the planet in next few years, and everyone is going to be experiencing a shift in vibration as our future and more evolved selves arrive to assist us on our ascension journey.

What to Do When a Deceased Love One is Bothering You

At first it is comforting. Ah, your sweet aunt came to visit you three days after her funeral. You smelled her cologne and remembered some nice day you spent shopping with her. Then, she's there the next week, and the week after that, and the next thing you know she's there all day and making herself at home. Spirit visitations seem to occur more often around the holidays or some event that may be significant to the deceased—like a birth/death day, anniversary date, or family reunion. With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, I think it is fitting to address this now.

I get emails from readers who many times are having issues with deceased loved ones or other earthbound spirits (or soul aspect that did not cross over) who want to hang around those who are still in body. Some spirits or ghosts can be disruptive, like a house guest that won't leave or go home when the party is over. I want to address this and gives some tips on how to deal with the deceased loved one who is making themselves a pest in your home or personal space.

This invasion (even though this spirit is your mom or dad, brother or sister, etc.) is like having a friend show up at your door uninvited everyday and stay until all hours while disrespecting your privacy. They may watch you in the shower, hover over you while you are in bed, and even move stuff around in your house. This type of spirit visitation is not comforting and personally, I would not allow it.

Many times simply asking the spirit to leave and then burning some sage in the house will suffice for clearing. However, if this does not work, then ask yourself what you are doing to allow or require this entity a presence there. Is there some unfinished business between the two of you? Identify what this business might be. Was there an argument prior to his/her death? Were you their caregiver and now they feel obligated to you? Did you inherit some piece of furniture, jewelry, car, house, money, or other possession that this person held dear?

Call in your angels and highest guidance aligned with the Light and then sit down with this loved one and say whatever it is you need to say. Thank them for being in your life while they were in body and let them know that you love them, but need them to leave. Let them know that you appreciate the personal belonging that you inherited and that you will treasure it for as long as it is with you.


Most deceased loved ones do not want to cause harm to their family members—they just don't know they are being a bother. Tell them how they are negatively affecting you. Your grandmother/grandfather may have something to say to you that will give her/him the peace and resolution she/he needs to move on. When you feel that you have found resolution and the karma has been cleared between the two of you, (this should not take more than one session, so don't let them manipulate you into having more "pow-wows" or heart-to-heart talks) it is time to call upon archangels Michael and Chamuel and ask them to escort this entity to the light or some place in the afterlife where he/she can continue with soul development and ascension.

Because karmic patterns leave energy threads, you may still sense a slight (but much less pronounced) presence after the clearing. Don't let this trick you into thinking that the spirit is still there—that would open a door or extend an invitation for their return visit. This is the time to remind yourself that all karma has been resolved and that you are free to live your life without the influence of others, incarnated or dis-incarnated. Ask your higher guidance or angels to remove the karmic threads and fill those vacant spaces with the energy of love, light, peace, joy, grace, gentleness, or whatever you feel is appropriate.

I hope that helps you resolve this type of intrusion.

Why Deceased Loved Ones May or May Not Hang Around You

From time to time I get a question from a reader of this blog that I feel many people might want to have answered. So, with the permission of a gracious woman named Brenda, I want to share a segment of our discussion about why deceased loved ones may or may not hang around us here on Earth.

Brenda wrote:

"I am in the last stages of processing my dads passing. However, I still feel stuck between acceptance and denial. I'm a little angry that he is not here in the physical, and I feel a huge void. I keep circling between these emotions, then I'm ok, then, back to denial, sadness, and crying bouts! Do you think my dad sees me from where he's at? And, do they miss us too? I think the answer is yes!!! BUt, I need some input. I miss him and sometimes Im so tired of grieving. I want the pain to stop!!!! Im exuasted!!!! Please give me some input. Thank you."

To which I answered:

"Healing is a journey and it is very common to fluctuate back and forth between different emotions when grieving. I can’t tell you 100 percent that your dad can see you, but I can ask you to look for signs of his presence. The more those in body grieve for those who have left the body, the more we keep them earthbound. That’s because they want to know that we are okay with their leaving and they want us to be happy. If your dad feels that you are not okay without him, he will likely stay near you, but it may grieve him to do so. I say that because he has other missions/purposes that need to be tended to in the afterlife.

"You might want to have a chat with your dad (pull up a chair, light a candle, and just talk as if he's in the room) and let him know you are going to be okay and that you want him to find his joy in the next world/life. Let him know that you love and appreciate all you had here in this Earth life and that it’s okay to move on. I believe this will stop some of the grief you (and possibly, he) are experiencing."

By the way, our loved ones who have crossed over communicate with us in a variety of ways. They may bring a familiar smell, or leave coins, feathers, or other objects in our path. They may appear in bird, animal, or human form. They may come to us in our dreams, or may be the voice we hear in our head. You may hear a song that was special to him or her.

Feeling Like a Different Person after a Near-death Experience

Many of my blog readers may be wondering what a walk-in is and why I'm asking people to get on a call with people who have had a strange spiritual experience that left them feeling like a totally different person. And, why would I approach this subject on a blog that is specifically about death, dying, and afterlife?

The reason is because the walk-in experience is many times facilitated through a near-death experience or suicide attempt. I wrote about near-death experiences in my book, More Than Meets the Eye ~ True Stories about Death, Dying, and Afterlife. Life reviews, traveling through a tunnel of light, meeting deceased loved ones, Jesus and other ascended masters, or being told to go back and complete this lifetime—are included in the reports we hear when a person’s soul temporarily visits the afterlife and returns to the body.

What we rarely hear is how the NDE often significantly changes a person. Many tend to find themselves suddenly open to the spiritual realm, some become empathic or energy sensitive, or begin to exhibit psychic gifts as a result of their brush with death. Others feel like they are not the same person as before the event, and that may very well be true. A near-death experience can facilitate a prearranged soul swap, but not everyone who has a near-death experience will have a walk-in/walk-out experience.

So what is a walk-in? There is both a simple and a complex answer to that questions. Simple, if you understand the multi-dimensional aspect of a soul existing simultaneously on parallel planes. The answer is simple if you can accept that being born into a body is not the only way a soul can enter the Earth, and that death is not the only way a soul can leave this world. However, the answer is complicated when trying to explain all the ways that soul exchanges, co-habitations, soul braids/merges, soul over-lighting/draping, soul upgrades, and cosmic downloads can happen. That is why I wrote an entire book about the walk-in experience. If the following indications that a walk-in has occurred seem to resonate with you, then you may want to get a copy of my book.
  • An abrupt change in personality that may have resulted from a dissociative event, near-death experience, suicide attempt, or other perilous marker.
  • Feeling like your body has been short circuited or that your nerves have been fried. 
  • Feeling that you are a stranger in your own body 
  • Brain fog or sudden loss of memory.
  • Having a sense that you are a misfit on Earth. This feeling may have intensified when the two souls swapped places. 
  • Suddenly having chronic fatigue and muscle pain such as fibromyalgia. For me, this started with the actual event that pinned me to the floor, and lasted for more than two years afterward. 
  • Spiritual gifts suddenly opening up: You start to know things about people that no one has told you. You suddenly start to see, hear, or feel non-physical beings around you. You become more telepathic. Your sensitivity to energy increases. You touch someone and they are healed.

Healing the Spirit of an Ancestor

Using my intuition, I can typically tell if there is a spirit visitor in my immediate area. As I was working on my ancestry book this week I came across a photo of an ancestor, my great-great-grandmother. Her eyes seemed to beckon me as if she was trying to get a message to me. I began to sense a kind and tender spirit in the room with me. I instinctively knew that she was there for healing. Yes, a spirit can heal in the afterlife of karmic patterns or tragic events that occurred in a previous lifetime. This particular ancestor, from what I have discovered in my researched, had a very difficult life. As a woman in the early 1800s her power was taken away from her by the male dominate culture in which she was raised.

I have been doing a lot of self-healing recently, and it only makes sense that the healing I am doing personally could heal those who have come before me as well as break destructive patterns for those who may come after me. Souls are timeless. And, there really is no separation or such thing as linear time. Everything is occurring simultaneously.

There is a Bible verse that says something to the effect that the "sins" (experiences) of the fathers can be visited on the next generation. If the karmic patterns of former generations affect us in this current generation, then it must be true that we can pay a goodness forward. The self-healing we do in this life can positively affect our offspring and future generations as well as extended family. And since we are all family, so related, even our friends and those who are in our lives as acquaintances can benefit.

As I interacted with the spirit of my great-great-grandmother that day I interceded on her behalf. The Christ consciousness that lives within us intercedes on behalf of of all those who are in our lives whether they have a body or not.

The next time you receive a personal healing and find victory over something that you know an ancestor struggled with, you may choose to send healing energy to that person and trust that they will benefit from it.

Communicating With Deceased Relatives - How Can I Talk to My Family on the Other Side?

By Tina Bardo

Is communicating with the spirits of your loved ones after they have passed away unusual?
Is it unhealthy? Is it strange, weird or something to be embarrassed of, or is it a normal and perfectly healthy way of healing or helping with grief?

Is seeking out a psychic or a medium or someone who talks to the dead an odd obsession, or can it play an instrumental part of the puzzle when it comes to moving on?

The truth is, for those of us who write about the amazing healing benefits that having a credible communication with your loved ones can bring, traditional therapists and psychologists are now coming to the very same conclusions.

Why? Because the fact is, no matter WHAT you believe... it's impossible to ignore the fact that so many folks feel incredibly healed by having an experience they believe is a genuine and authentic communication with someone they've loved and lost. (most commonly a spouse, child or parent who has passed on, sometimes suddenly and without the opportunity to say a proper goodbye)
Even if you believe that spirit communication is silly, it's impossible to argue with the fact that many people who experience it, first hand report all sorts of amazing and life changing benefits that YEARS of therapy, or time... can do to lessen the feeling of loss after a loved one passes away.

Are psychic mediums the ONLY way to communicate with deceased friends and family members on the other side?

Absolutely NOT. And while mediums are often thought of as the only way to communicate with the spirits of those who have passed on, the truth is, there are many other ways as well... many of which happen completely spontaneously, and without any other input at all.

As a matter of fact, about HALF of all people will report some sort of afterlife experience with a family member or close friend, without any help from a psychic or medium or any sort of spiritual technique at all. (spontaneous, unplanned spiritual visitation experiences are very common, highly under-reported, and often life changing as well)

In addition...

There are tons of tools, and techniques that can help facilitate spirit communication, and they run the gamut from EMDR (rapid eye movement therapy) to mirror gazing, EVP, using a Ouija style tool or of course, seeking out the advice of a credible psychic or medium if the above sounds too weird for you, especially if you are curious but NOT yet convinced.

The key is - believe in SOMETHING. And be willing to explore the extraordinary.

It WILL change your life. (and what you come to KNOW happens AFTER your life, and the lives of all you love as well!)

Death of a Child - Does Loss of a Child Really Destroy Marriages?

By Kimberly Pryor

You've probably heard people quote statistics that parents who suffer the death of a child are more likely to divorce. In fact, the often-quoted statistic is that 75 percent of parents eventually divorce within months of the loss of a child. However, that number was the guesswork of a book author who wrote about this subject in 1977. Studies conducted since then paint a different picture.

The Compassionate Friends, the nation's largest self-help bereavement organization for families who have experienced the death of a child, conducted a survey in 2006 that showed a divorce rate of 16 percent among bereaved parents.

In another study, researchers at Montana State University-Billings administered a survey to parents who had suffered the loss of a child. The results? Nine percent of the respondents divorced following their child's death. And 24 percent of the remaining respondents had considered divorce--but had not actually done so. So in 33 percent of the couples taking the survey, the death of a child had stressed the marriage, but the divorce rate was nowhere near 75 percent.

A third study, published in 2010 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, investigated whether there was a higher divorce rate in spouses whose child developed cancer. Cancer in a child was NOT associated with an increased risk of parental divorce overall. However, increased divorce rates were observed for couples where the mothers had an education greater than high school level. The risk was particularly high shortly after diagnosis, for couples with children 9 years of age and younger at diagnosis, and after a child's death.

If you have experienced the heartbreak of the death of a child, know your union with your spouse has a very strong chance of becoming even stronger. Still, in some cases, this tragedy can stress a relationship. To keep your marriage as healthy as possible, grieving parents should keep the following in mind.

Avoid Blame

Blame is highly toxic to any marriage because it involves accusing your partner of wrongdoing. For example, a husband holds his wife responsible for their teenage son's death because she gave their son permission to stay out late and drive to the movies with friends. On the way back from the movies, their son died in a car crash. In this scenario, the blame may erode the marriage's foundation.
Sometimes, grieving parents direct their blame at an outside entity. Compare Meryl and George vs. Patricia and Joe. Meryl and George's 11-year-old son Danny died of heart problems. Neither one blamed the other for the death. However, Meryl, who is Jewish, and George, who is Lutheran, were both angry with God. Prior to Danny's death, Meryl agreed to raise Danny as a Lutheran, and their little boy attended church activities and often arrived before the services so he could talk to the pastor. When Danny died, Meryl and George felt as if God had punished them unjustly for raising their son right. However, the couple was able to let go of their anger at God. Three years after Danny's death, George stepped inside a church for the first time since the funeral. More than a decade later, George and Meryl's marriage is still strong.

For Patricia and Joe, who lost their son Jimmy in a car accident, it was a different story. At first, the accident drew them closer together--until Joe blamed God for the accident, and his days were consumed with overwhelming anger that never subsided. Patricia, on the other hand, turned to God after Jimmy's death. They tried counseling, but Joe's bitterness at God and nearly everyone around him damaged their marriage, and the couple divorced.

Resolve Your Guilt

The study by the Montana State University researchers mentioned above found that
parents who have considered divorce after the death of a child are far more likely to express guilty feelings and frequently or sometimes perceive that their spouses expressed guilt. Those who hadn't considered divorcing were more likely to rarely or never feel guilt and were much less likely to perceive that their spouse expressed guilt. If you feel guilty in some way about your child's death, counseling may serve as an effective way to help resolve your feelings.

Realize You Both Grieve Differently

Our spouses often have similar interests and belief systems to our own. Grieving may be the first time in our relationships when we notice a significant difference between the two of us. Women, for example, are often more open and talkative about their grief while men tend to bundle their emotions inside or try to hide their vulnerability by grieving when alone. Men also can express their grief as anger. For example, when George discovered Danny had died, he punched the bedroom door, smashing a hole in the wood.

Allow Each Other to Grieve at Your Own Pace

Many of you reading this have heard these words before: "Why don't you move on? It's been a year now (or two years, or three, etc.)." When family says this it can be frustrating enough. But when a spouse feels as if it's time for you to move on it can feel devastating. Everyone grieves at his or her own pace, and we have to accept our partner's timeline. George and Meryl learned this firsthand.
About a year after Danny's death, Meryl wanted to visit his grave every week. George wanted to visit less often. At first, this hurt Meryl's feelings. But George convinced her going every other week was part of letting go. "I get a little crazy if it gets longer," Meryl admits.
Kimberly Pryor is the author of the bestselling ebook The Indestructible Relationship: A Couples' Guide to Coping with Bankruptcy, Natural Disasters, Infidelity, Illness, Death of a Child and Other Crises-Both Big and Small. The book tells the touching story of ten couples who have overcome adversity, including Meryl and George Muller, who lost their 11-year-old son Danny to heart disease.

Caregiving Tips for Boomers: 5 Tips for Decreasing the Cost of Caring for Elderly Parents

By Dr. Vicki Rackner

Over 30 million Baby Boomers provide countless hours of assistance to elderly parents at no charge. It is estimated that, using average hourly wages, the total amount of this uncompensated care is comparable to the entire Medicare budget. For the estimated 7 million Boomers who provide long distance care, actual out of pocket expenses amount to almost $5,000 per month. For caregivers who have, or are considering leaving the workforce to care for an ailing parent, the costs are even greater - over $650,000 in forfeited salaries, benefits and pensions.

This stark economic reality shows only one dimension of the price caregivers pay for this act of love.

Caregivers pay with losses that extend well beyond their bank accounts. They often forego the activities that bring joy and richness to their lives, like meeting friends for dinner, or going out to the movies or taking family vacations. They pay with their time, the loss of professional opportunities and the erosion of personal relationships that result in isolation.

Sometimes, otherwise healthy loved ones need a short dose of care as they recover from an acute medical episode like a broken leg. Usually loved ones are on a path of steady decline with cascading assistance needs. Some caregivers sacrifice large chunks of their own lives as they help their parents and other family members and friends peacefully make their transitions. Caregivers can pay with their own health and well-being. In fact, we have evidence that some caregivers pay for their acts of care with their very lives.

You can decrease the personal and economic costs of caregiving. This means proactive planning rather than reactive responding. Planning saves money. You know this as you reflect upon your experiences of going to the grocery store with and without a shopping list. Planning also minimizes personal wear and tear and decreases stress. You will feel much better when you know your options and develop back-up plans before you jump into a challenging project.

5 Tips to Decrease the Cost of Caregiving:

1. Begin the conversation today. We have tremendous cultural resistance to the recognition of aging, disability and death. Just as the first few steps uphill are the hardest, so, too, you may meet the greatest resistance simply starting the conversation about their possible need for care. Say today, "Mom and Dad, it would be great if you lived forever, but the discovery for the fountain of youth is nowhere on the horizon. What thoughts and plans do you have about enjoying your golden years?"

2. Create a plan. Talk with your parents about their ideal plan if they are no longer able to care for themselves. Then, start to work toward that proactively. Investigate long-term care insurance. Draw up the appropriate legal documents. Find out who would make medical choices if they were not able to make them on their own, along with some guiding principles for the choices. You can anticipate and limit parental resistance by saying, "Mom and Dad, I just got back from the lawyer's office signing my will and durable medical power of attorney. I've asked Mitch to make my medical choices if I cannot make them myself. Just so you know, if I were in vegetative state, I wouldn't want to be maintained on a machine. You probably already planned ahead too, right?"

3. Use personal and community resources. Make caregiving a family job to which each member contributes. Even children can make grandma's life special with drawings and phone calls. Identify services that make your job as a caregiver easier. If you and your parents live in the same community, check with friends and neighbors and local organizations to learn about services and resources that will make your job easier. You say, "Mom has just moved in with us, and she wants to 'find a card game with the girls.' Do you know of any senior centers that have social events? How about transportation?"

We're a mobile society and millions of caregivers live more than an hour away from their parents. Executive William Gillis learned from his own personal experience how challenging it is to identify community resources from afar. As he was carving the path that ultimately led his on-line portfolio management service, he became the caregiver for his father. Talk about mixed emotions!  Professionally, he was introducing a service that let millions manage their investments with one click of a computer mouse. Personally, he was investing untold hours just to find one bit of information to help his dad."

As with so many innovators, he used his personal and professional experience to launch Parent Care (www.parents-care.com), a service that he wished would have made his life as
a caregiver-at-a-distance easier.

4. Gather cost-savings tips. This might mean something as simple as ordering generic medication or regularly inquiring about senior discounts. But, most cost savings opportunities aren't as obvious. Mr. Gillis found, for example, that some states will pay for phones for hearing, visually or mobility limited seniors or fund home safety improvements. He said, "We've invested heavily to locate time and money saving resources that most would have difficulty finding. I made it a personal mission to help other caregivers avoid some of the costs and frustration I encountered." You don't have to re-invent the wheel. Tap into the resources others have collected.

5. Take care of yourself. You will be able to provide the best care as a caregiver when you're at your best. Get good nutrition, enough sleep and regular exercise. Manage your stress and do a little something every day to nurture your soul. Understand that you are at increased risk for anxiety, depression, and weakening your immune system. Talk to your doctor if you see worrisome signs such as problems sleeping, changes in appetite or loss of interest in activities you enjoy.

Despite the costs, most caregivers say that they received much more than they gave. Most say they would do it again, and many do.

Sometimes the question is not the personal cost of caregiving; it's the value that you bring to the lives of others that matter at the end. What personal cost are you willing to pay for the privilege of helping those who welcomed you into the world to enjoy their golden years and travel the road of illness with love and dignity?

Souls in the Afterlife

Souls are typically only able to manifest in one place at a time while wearing a physical body. Without the body, a soul can travel anywhere and experience unlimited ability to move about and manifest in any dimension. From what I’ve learned, a soul can move from one place to another with nothing more than a conscious thought. Thus, one who was a mother to you in a recent life is able to be around you one minute and be about her business in other dimensions the next (or even simultaneously).

So, when you think of your loved one, he or she likely senses that vibrational signal and is able to respond by projecting their presence even if you don’t see, hear, or sense them. Many times, our loved ones on the other side give us signs that they are visiting us. Be aware of things crossing your path that are signs of visitation. These include but are definitely not limited to hearing songs she loved, smells that were common to him, objects that she would have liked, etc. For example, when my aunt is visiting me, I smell cigarette smoke and see cameos—a sign that we agreed upon would be an indication that she was contacting me.

Paths Toward Peace Of Mind As We Mourn

By Lou LaGrand

The pain, frustration, and suffering we go through after the death of a loved one is extremely difficult to cope with and grow through. However, great losses, particularly the changes that go with them, are constant and have to be addressed. Grief by nature is a transformational process: we learn new ways to adapt to a different life or continue to resist the inevitable changes that have to be made. Since there are numerous healing paths to follow, perhaps you will find one or more of the paths below to be one of your choices and provide achievable inner peace in the process.

1. Find your purpose/mission in life. Think long and hard on why you are here. Do you have a personal goal? Purpose gives us meaning and a boost in self-esteem. Examine your skills, abilities, and interests, very closely. Carefully ask yourself what moves you deep within. Then decide on a plan to follow in creating a purpose to lead you to a higher level of consciousness. The sense of accomplishment will transform your life and in the process pull you out of the shadows. The cost of not seeking your niche, your contribution, is overwhelming.

2. Focus more on what you can give and less on what you can receive. We all certainly need support in dealing with our losses. However, it is equally true, that at some point in our grieving seeking to help others even though we are hurting is a historically proven way to cope well. Start by paying the kindness you receive forward. Decide what has helped you up to this point in you grief; analyze it for the needs that it met, and try to meet similar needs in others. Think of these four basic needs we all hope to be fulfilled in our interpersonal relationships: attention, acceptance, affection, and appreciation. Decide on the many behaviors you can generate to meet these needs in others. You can build more peace within as you bring peace to them.

3. Choose to develop your ability to become more loving. Love is a great unused power in dealing with all sorts of difficult situations. Grieving and adapting to great losses are situations in which working to love deeper and more completely brings new perceptions in seeing the world and our places in it. Great love strengthens the quality of our inner lives.

Look for uplifting and inspiring readings or poetry which suggests loving kindness as the motivating force behind it; read a short paragraph daily and then commit to those loving actions as you go through your day. Ask yourself. "What actions can I take to give unconditional positive regard to someone today?" Developing this daily routine will add structure to your life and help stabilize the sense of disorganization that accompanies grief work.

4. Develop and nurture a belief in something greater than the self. For most, grief is a heart-filled spiritual journey which fills mourners with a different perception of life and death. It may be appropriate to join a spiritual community to be with others who share similar values. Just being in their company to listen can be a soothing experience and you may find spiritual exercises that bring great insight and peace.

The awareness of spiritual knowledge and the impact it can have on every facet of life is a resource of inestimable value in coping with the death of a loved one. If you don't have one, find a spiritual path. Don't allow the culture we live in to deemphasize the importance of faith and spirituality in living a full life and coping with the massive changes we all eventually face.

5. Be open to new ideas and ways to adapt to change. There are so many ways to cope with great losses, many we never think about. So read all you can about how others cope with their losses. Ask others how they were able to adapt to their great loss and find peace. For example, consider deciding to search for ways to deal with your pain and not run from it. Uncover new responses that help ease pain. There are some that will fit your belief system and you can implement them to your own individual situation.

Be sure to include ways to deal with stress which commonly builds as we think too much
about what we do not have. Daily stress management will not only help your mind, it will be a great gift to your body as well. Start by learning about mindfulness techniques and belly breathing.

6. Learn what you can and cannot control. One goal that all of the various grief theories agree on is that the ultimate goal of grieving is acceptance of what has occurred. Of course, not easy to do. This acceptance translates into coming to grips with what you can control, like in the present moment, and what you cannot change or affect from the past. No one can reverse what has occurred. Knowing the difference is a choice requiring wisdom and sometimes guidance from others. It can also require prayer and/or deep meditation. Making the choice of acceptance, which means to live with the fact, not necessarily like it, would be a great start to inner peace.

7. Set a goal to reach in honor of your loved one. Peace comes through doing as well as thinking. Allow yourself to be touched and motivated by the invisible presence of the beloved. Unwavering determination is of essential importance in completing your mission. So once you have chosen how you will pay tribute, create a schedule of when and how you will work on it. Develop the habit of eliminating self-sabotaging thoughts of what you don't have by switching to a focus on your progress of paying tribute to your loved one.

Continually work to create a conscious lifestyle that has peace of mind as a top priority. Make this is a daily duty.

Heather Von St James | A Mesothelioma Cancer Survivor Story

Cancer is not the focus of this blog, but a positive, uplifting story about overcoming an illness can be a huge help to any sort of caregiver when they're feeling down.

Cameron Von St. James was thrown into the role of caregiver when his wife, Heather, was diagnosed with a very rare and deadly cancer called mesothelioma, just three months after the birth of their only child. They were initially told that she could have less than 15 months to live, but she was able to defy the odds and eventually beat the cancer. During her treatment, Cameron had to learn quickly to be an effective caregiver, and there were many times when he became overwhelmed and beaten down by the role, but he and his wife managed to fight through it together. They recently participated in a short video about his wife's cancer experience, which they hope to use to raise awareness and support for people fighting illness, and the caregivers who fight alongside them. Here is the link to the video: http://can.cr/heather

How to Communicate With the Dead

By Tina Bardo

Believe it or not, there are many ways to communicate with spirit, over and above the ones that everyone already is familiar with.

For example...

Did you know that "mirror gazing" or using what is called a psychomanateum, can lead to profound experiences with spiritual visitation? (and experiences that well over 90% of those who try it report felt as "real" as if they were visiting their loved ones while alive)

As a matter of fact... the famous author, Dr. Raymond Moody (well known for coining the phrase "Near Death Experience" in his seminar book, "Life after Life") spent a few years researching using mirror gazing to facilitate personal experiences with the deceased... and the published results were remarkable. (and documented in his book entitled, "ReUnions")

How about EMDR? Familiar with it? It's a form of therapeutic rapid eye movement that is well known to help all sorts symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder, and as an unexpected side effect, many patients reported having incredible visitations with their deceased loved ones while having the experiences. Dr Alan Boyntin, the pioneer of this particular healing modality also has written extensively about these "after-worldly" encounters as a result of having this exotic treatment... and while he's not sure what they represent, they clearly are being reported as 100% real by his patients.
Other easy ways to get personal proof that the afterlife is AVAILABLE to you?

I've had amazing experiences with a Ouija board that were so incredible...most of the people I tell about them DON'T think they're true. (and they are, as those of us who were there can attest!)

Meditation is a great way to develop mediumistic abilities, as it seems to reduce the mental filter that separates our biology (our brains) from being able to access the otherworldly and afterlife realms (which I believe are pure energy... and meditation helps us to open up channels within our minds to access this energy that is always around us).

Lastly, speaking to a psychic medium who has the ability to communicate with spiritual or ethereal dimensions is a GREAT way to put all of this to the test in your own life. I was a die hard skeptic many years ago... and it wasn't until I had a first hand experience with a genuine medium by phone who told me things that were impossible for her to have known, did my mind start opening to the notion that death is NOT the end. And since then... the journey I've taken looking for evidence has changed my life in so many exciting ways, they'd be impossible to count.

Most importantly? That death is NOT the end. And that the "dead" do want to hear from us. And that when we're ready... and committed to making contact, they WILL be there to respond!

Loving Parents Who Are Fading

By Marcia McGuire

If you have someone in your family who is fading with Alzheimer, you will relate to this article about my Dad. He has dementia. Some days he'll play the piano and sing, others he can't even find his bedroom. He repeats so much, your head is reduced to just nodding a smile because you've heard the same words over a hundred times. I can't count all the times I've heard how some men came over to hang his elk heads on the wall. (Actually, it was my sister and her son, but telling him otherwise, as you know, won't be a part of the next conversation.)

But this article isn't about my visits to see daddy. It's about his caregiver, my faithful mom. She has her own health problems and yet, she's the sole person to love and take care of her aging husband while at the same time, struggles to keep a hold of her own health.

How many couples are in that same situation, one taxing the other, both spiraling down? Our weekly visits and prayers that the next time we come, that they'll be doing just as good, aren't all that they need. What is to be done?

Here's some ideas:

1. If at all possible, have them live near one of the children, not necessarily in their home, but around the corner or in a small apartment on the property. This way they'll have someone there every day to check and give rides for groceries or to see grandchildren. It isn't the same when they live across town. If anything, it's important just so they know someone is nearby to give them security.

2. Have a church body or circle of friends help. We want to serve one another and what better way than to reach out to our elderly. It's amazing how having another person there can make both brighten up.

3. Make arrangements for the caregiver (mom in our case) to have time away from the Alzheimer one which gives them a fresh look and a breather. Arrange for a senior citizen bus to pick them up for a day out with others their age. There's caring folks working in these services that are great asset.

4. Cook meals ahead so you know they are going to eat right. Package and freeze in their meal proportions.

5. If they don't know computers, introduce the caregiver parent a simple way to get online. Show them how easy it is to shop online and have it sent right to their front door. Use as few of click as possible to enjoy Facebook, where they can meet friends. Set the screen saver to show pictures of family. We make CDs and installed them into mom's My Pictures in her computer. This way they can sit and see familiar faces. Dad especially recognizes his mom and for the time being, his children although that part is fading too, so keeping faces familiar is important.

6. Be careful how you tell either of them what they need to do. They've made decisions all their lives and taking away that thought process is detrimental to both. It's especially vital to have the caregiver spouse have space and an opinion. Suggestions, yes, but not "You need to...." Encourage both of them gently, never boss which quite often makes them balk and not cooperate. They both need dignity and lots of "yeses" especially the Alzheimer parent. I remember one incident where dad wouldn't get in the shower because he was told he had to. My sister came in and just said, "Dad, the showers on. Your turn," and he forgot he was arguing about getting in.

7. Call them often. My sisters have daily rituals to call mom on their way to work, and she watches like clockwork for their calls. I'm not a phone talker, so I send love letters in the mail. Mailboxes get way too many ads and bills, so I love picturing dad peering inside their box by the front door and carrying his treasure to mom to read. (You should see some of the silly treasures they get inside that box.)

8. Most important, remember, they've taken care and loved each other all these years and know they're married for better or worse. The worse is happening, and they're dealing with it. We need to be a safety net for them.

9. And when, and if, the day arrives they have to place their dementia companion in a care center, be even more keen for the one left at home. It will be empty and, after nurturing their "child" sweetheart for so long, they'll wonder what's next and how to fill their time. Add to this, all the memories that will fill their minds, acting like little ghost everywhere. Be acutely aware how they're coping with all the changes.

10. Talk with your siblings and other family members of ways you can help them. Hopefully they will realize their responsibility is to be there for them.

Think of this story that pretty much explains what is going on.

"It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 a.m., when an elderly gentleman in his 80's, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He stated that he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.

"On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound. While taking care of his wound, we began to engage in conversation. I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

"I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

"I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?' He smiled as he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.'

"I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, 'That is the kind of love I want in my life.' True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be."

And that's life for our family. Daddy has dementia. We deal with it because we love him. Many families have a parent that is fading and needs assistance, for us to be involved and loving them all that we can. They were there for us. We're returning. And the circle of life goes around until we may find we are fading and need our children to love us.
