There are spirits all around you. Your own Guides, your loved ones who have already passed (human and animal by the way) want to be near you and look in on you. My first dog, a big, shaggy black beast is always near me; he has quite clearly told me he would very much like to come back soon and live with me again.
The city of I live in has a rich history, and many old buildings with layers and layers of stories in their walls. It is not hard to find a wandering spirit on any given occasion. It’s been my experience that if they know I can see them, a few common reactions occur.
The Scary Dance
They try to scare me. If the being is carrying a lot of heavy energy and emotions, the only way he or she knows how to communicate is through anger, hate and fear. Also, they can often get a reaction out of the living by sending out such heavy vibrations. If they have enough energy, they may manifest: a form, moving an object, sounds. Spirits are sometimes a little like dogs or small children; any attention, even if it’s negative, is reinforcing to them. It makes sense too. Heck, if I could see and hear everything that was going on around me, but everyone ignored, or walked through me, I’d probably get annoyed and start throwing things too.
The “How I Died” Movie
Especially if the death was traumatic, they want to tell me about it. Make that show me. I’ve been shown being drowned, stabbed, shot, suicide, and being surrounded by family members saying goodbye.
Afterlife Message Service
“Tell my family…” As much as I would love to pass on every ‘I love you, I miss you, I’m okay’ the reality is often the family isn’t even present on the earth anymore to give a message to.
For those who have passed over, and even for those who haven’t the message is the same: They’re okay. They still exist, their personality survives even though the body may be long gone. And they love you.
Time To Go Home
What I can do for spirits is offer to help them cross the Veil.
There’s lots and lots of ways to conceptualize this, ‘going into the light,’ ‘crossing over,’ etc. Basically it’s when a spirit that is bound to the earth releases that binding and steps into the next realm, the true home of our spirit.
Spirits that are stuck here on Earth cannot move on for any number of reasons, traumatic death, unfinished business, an inability to let go of life, the list goes on and on and on. It includes the ties of loved ones among the living who refuse to release the one who has passed on.
Not all of them want to go. Some are fully aware that they’re dead, that home waits on the other side, but they want to stay attached for a time.
Crossing the Veil releases that binding; it is always by the being’s own free choice. I don’t ‘make’ a spirit cross; I only point the way, although sometimes that process of pointing and explaining can get quite involved. My Guides assist; they help by calling in the earthbound spirit’s own Guides and loved ones who show the bound spirit the way home.
Some of the most wonderful crossings I’ve ever seen are those of the darkest entities I’ve encountered. These beings are filled with pain, fear and hopelessness and frequently project quite intense feelings of hate or anger. When they cross the Veil, they release all of that heaviness and become once again their true, light selves. It’s almost like an explosion of love and joy; the whole energy of the room changes, going from dark, prickly and uncomfortable to almost unbearably beautiful.
