SUNDAY GUARDIAN: What Will Happen To You After Death?

SUNDAY GUARDIAN: What Will Happen To You After Death?

Does one become a twinkling star in the sky after death? If not a star, what does one become after death? At some point in our lives, most of have wondered about what happens after death : is there an afterlife or is there nothingness? Death anxiety, according to Wikipedia, is anxiety caused by thoughts of death. “Also referred to as thanatophobia or fear of death, death anxiety is distinguished from necrophobia, which is a specific fear of dead or dying people and/or things, i.e., fear of others who are dead or dying, not of one’s own death or dying…”

However, though most of us are curious, not everybody has anxieties about death. In fact, there are theories and theories and theories

about death. Recently, Stars Insider compiled 30 theories about what happens when you die. The compilation points out that for many people the fear of death revolves around the fear of the unknown. What happens when we die? Do we go to heaven, get reincarnated into an animal, or get re-programmed in the simulation?

Here are a few theories that are a part of the compilation. The never-ending life theory is described as “definitely one of the most unique on the list”. This claims that when you die you are immediately reborn into your life again without any memory of the life you have  just led before.

The cosmic theory claims that our consciousness belongs to the universe, not to our individual bodies. When you die, your consciousness returns to the cosmos. Buddhists believe in reincarnation after death. There are different realms that you can be reborn into after death. The parallel universe theory claims that when we die we will be living in the same universe as we were before, just in a different portion of space and time. Those who believe in the paranormal claim that after death, our souls remain among the living on Earth. Hinduism also holds the belief of reincarnation. “If you have seen the hit Netflix series Stranger Things then you know what the Upside Down is” explains Stars Inisder. The show claims that there is an alternate dimension to our universe that a person can become trapped in, being neither alive nor dead. The many worlds theory claims that when we die, there are other universes out there for us to move on to.

The Stars Insider list is fascinating, but believe it or not, there are many more fascinating and sometimes stranger theories, philosophies and research findings about death, such as the phenomenon described by a microbiologist at the University of Washington (USA) Peter Anthony Noble. “Open Mind” revealed that when he studied the activity of genes during the death of mice and zebra fish, he discovered with surprise that more than a thousand genes “wake up” when the animal’s life has ended—including some that have been silent since the end of embryonic development—and remain active until four days after death.

It’s most interesting that a company called Bioquark, based in Philadelphia (USA), is trying to address the reanimation of patients in deep and irreversible comas—equivalent to brain death—who are kept stable with cardiopulmonary and alimentary support. “The goal of the ReAnima Project”, according to by Ira Pastor, CEO of Bioquark, “is to explore the possibility of ‘restoring central nervous system form and function’ through a combination of regenerative medicine and brain stimulation”. Javier Yanes writes that “while we wait for projects like that of Bioquark to come closer to making reversible that which today is not, at least we can hold on to one consolation: a recent study from the University of North Carolina (USA) has found that the final messages from terminal patients and from those sentenced to death are more hopeful than might be expected…‘I think that we imagine our last moments incorrectly,’ the director of the study, psychologist Kurt Gray. Meeting the grim reaper may not be as grim as it seems.”

It has been cited by believers in an afterlife that according to former Scientologist Bruce Hines, in Scientology doctrine, “the body that you have ceases to work.” Allegedly, they say “you,” or the spirit, would, for example, go to a hospital and find a baby being born and decide to inhabit that body.’ Early Show’ national correspondent Hattie Kauffman called it reincarnation with a twist. The spirit is called a thetan. Stephen Kent, a professor of sociology and alternative religions at the University of Alberta, told CBS News that Scientologists believe that thetans have been attached to bodies in past lives and that this pattern of attachment will continue well into the future.

Matt Fraser, a gifted psychic medium and author of the best-selling book The Secrets to Unlocking Your Psychic Ability, believes that after death too, you have “jobs”, i.e. you take on certain tasks or they are assigned to you. Martin Heidegger, the German philosopher hailed as one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century, believed that that “all human existence is embedded in time: past, present, future, and when considering the future, we encounter the notion of death. This then creates angst…angst can lead to a freedom about existence, but only if we can stop denying our mortality.”

Plato too believed that the physical world actually limited our knowledge, and that when a person dies they move on to a new life that is more fulfilling. His theory, was that death gives souls a chance to find their true existence. In India, the story of the Kalpvriksha is well known. Elsewhere in the world, many people believe in the Tree of Life. “Have you ever heard of the Tree of Life?” questions Stars Insider and answers:  “some people decide to take that literally by having their remains buried in a tree pod. This way, your body is given back to the Earth and perhaps you will become a proud tree in your next existence”. Obviously, going by all the theories, findings and first hand experiences revolving around death, instead of being morbid it seems to be more of a hopeful adventure, a doorway to a new future —maybe as a twinkling star, maybe as a tree, maybe as someone’s much loved pet—who know? The may be’s are limitless and fascinating.

Are You A Psychic Medium ?

Are You A Psychic Medium ?

You May Be Psychic…

A lot of people who come to my shows ask, “How can I tell if I’m psychic?”

Well, the truth is that some people are psychic and don’t know it! We all born with a sixth sense, but as we get older, many people “tune out” and lose it. They might start out extremely psychic, but they begin overthinking and questioning what their intuition is telling them so they don’t benefit from it. Big mistake! Even if you never plan to make your living reading tarot cards or tea leaves, being tuned in is a helpful tool when it comes to navigating relationships, careers, and just about everything in your life.

There are a lot of ways to know if you have a psychic gift. And the best part is that even paying attention to the possibility can help you develop your abilities and improve your intuition. Here are some ways that your sixth sense can show up in your life:

SEEING SPIRITS

Have you ever seen a spirit? Sometimes it’s a person who has passed. Sometimes it’s a beloved pet.

You might think you’re imagining things, but you might be seeing them as they are reaching out to connect with you. Sometimes it might not be a direct connection. You might see something out of the corner of your eye. And even though you don’t really see it clearly, you just have a feeling you know what it was. For some people, the connection comes in sound more than vision. They hear voices, whispers, or hear phrases out of the blue that make a powerful connection.

FEELING PSYCHIC ENERGY & EMOTIONS

Another way that psychic connections happen is through energy. You might feel the energy of a room or of a building when you walk in. A friend of mine was looking for a house. She drove her realtor crazy because sometimes they’d step through a front door, and my friend would say, “no” and go right back to the car. She didn’t know anything about the floorplan or price. She just knew that house wasn’t for her. Sometimes the feelings come when we meet a person.

We can feel their energy and have an instant sense about them. With friends, we might know something is going on even when they don’t say anything. You might suddenly think of a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Make a phone call. You’ll usually find out they needed that call because they have something going on that they need to talk about. It can happen with animals too. Psychic people often have a sense that they understand animals and know when something is wrong even if there’s no “evidence.”

JUST KNOWING

Sometimes you just know that you know. You have a sense that there’s more going on than just what we see with our eyes. You feel things very strongly. You aren’t surprised when something unusual happens…as if you already knew it was going to happen!

PRACTICE

When you are getting in touch with your psychic abilities, you might get ideas that seem like premonitions or spiritual contacts, but sometimes it’s hard to tell what are psychic connections and what are your own thoughts and ideas. It can be helpful to start a journal and write down the things that come to you. If you have a dream that seems important, take a moment to write about it right when you first get up…before you forget!

When you have an experience like some of the things we’ve been talking about, write it down. Write about the feeling you had, and what you did. A couple days later, look back and take some time to review what you’ve written. See if there are connections. See if there are some things that still seem to be psychic connections and if some things now seem to be just good ideas. Over time, as you practice more, you might start to see connections.

If you’re wondering whether you have psychic abilities, that means you’re open to the possibility. And that means, the answer is probably YES!

SI ADVANCE: Staten Island Loves Psychics !

SI ADVANCE: Staten Island Loves Psychics !

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — If history has proven anything, it’s this: Staten Islanders love psychics.

Psychic medium John Edward, best known for his popular television series, “Crossing Over with John Edward,” is set to perform a two-hour group reading June 18 in the Hilton Garden Inn, Bloomfield — the same venue where psychic medium Matt Fraser performed for a crowd of 250 people in October 2018.

Pro-tip: Bring tissues. These sessions, whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, can get pretty emotional.

Fraser’s live reading on Staten Island was a testament to the mixed market. It was attended by 250 people; some were alone, others were with friends and family — but all came looking for answers and a chance to communicate with those they’ve lost.

Fraser explained to those in attendance that he started his career as an emergency medical technician, but decided to use his gift of talking to the departed — something he claims he’s been able to do since he was 4 years old — for good.

Can Negative Spirits Hurt Me?

Can Negative Spirits Hurt Me?

Understanding Negative Spirits, Souls & Energy.

Sometimes people ask me if all connections to Spirit are positive. “What about bad people who hurt me while they were alive? Can they hurt me after they’re gone?”

A friend of mine bought a beautiful old mansion in Newport to use for entertaining. Her family didn’t spend much time there, but when they did, they were uncomfortable. My friend asked me to come to the house with her because after she had some odd experiences. She thought the house was haunted. When I got there, I could sense a great sadness associated with that house. I felt emptiness, coldness and stagnant energy. The moment I walked in I felt that I was not welcome.

Even though the house was beautiful, it felt cold, sterile and airy – like a hospital. I told her it was really just an energy imprint, not a haunting. While I was there, I was shown that the original owners of the house had experienced tragedy. Their energy was still in the house. As I told my friend, it wasn’t a haunting. The house needed my friend’s energy.

An Energy Imprint is also referred to as an “energy haunting”. When a tragic, violent or emotional event happens in a house or a certain area, that energy can be left behind leaving an imprint. Even though there may not be any actual “ghosts” there anymore, you may still feel uneasy, sad or scared in the area. This is why so many people feel these sensations when visiting haunted placed like the Lizzy Borden house or the Winchester Mystery House.

I told my friend to infuse the house with her family’s happy, loving presence. The house needed to be recharged with positive energy, with day to day events, meals, sunshine and fresh air. She started going to the house during the day to work. She even took her pets to the house, so they could run and play in its rooms. Over time, her family’s positive energy replaced the old stagnant energy. Some of that old spirit was still in the house, but when the new lifeforce was allowed to come through, it edged that old energy out.

Crossing Over

Since we are all energy, things we interact with keep traces of our energy. That energy can stick around after we’re gone, but it’s not really the same as what people think of as “haunting.” Hauntings are rare and usually indicate a problem with a soul crossing over. Mediums can assist in replacing old energy, like I did with my friend, but transitioning the living over to Heaven is God’s work.

Souls have to be light to cross over. When you die, you let go of old pain, trauma and resentment. On the other side, we have to forgive and be forgiven and let things go. Sometimes, souls are too heavy to cross over, usually because of some darkness in their lives, and they become stuck. That’s what we think of as hauntings.

Those heavy spirits that get stuck here can’t hurt you when your own energy is positive. As my mom said, the only people you have to fear are the living! Still, there are some things you can do to get yourself some extra protection….and these techniques help with those earthly encounters too!

Psychic Protection Rituals
  • Imagine a mirrored wall surrounding you, forming a wall and reflecting negative energy away from you.
  • Get to know your angels and guides, and call upon them to protect you.
  • Burn sage to clear stagnant energy out of any living space that feels uncomfortable to you. It really works!
  • Take a few steps to infuse new spaces with your own energy. For example, I like to personalize hotel rooms by putting a photo of Alexa and our cats on the nightstand. I also play some of my favorite disco tunes!
  • When all else fails open the windows and let in the sunshine and fresh air.

Some people think being a psychic medium might be scary or a morbid way to make a living, I don’t see it that way at all. On the contrary, I feel blessed to be able to spread light and help the living heal by letting them know that their loved ones in Heaven are still with them and wishing them the best!

How Can I Get Read At A Group Reading Event?

How Can I Get Read At A Group Reading Event?

 How Can I Improve My Chances of Getting Read at a Psychic Group Reading?

My group reading are what I love doing the most. It’s so great to have personal interaction and meet so many of you up close and personal. 

Most people come to group readings hoping to hear a message from their loved ones, and sometimes people are disappointed when they don’t receive a direct message. Some people do the strangest things they think will help them get a reading.

At every event it amazes me how some people come hours early to be first in line and rush to the front row seats in hopes of “being seen” by those in Spirit. People bring their loved one’s belongings, memorabilia and even ashes. One woman even brought her husband’s glass eye! People try all kinds of things to get a message. But does any of that really work?

Here are some things to remember about attending a group reading with a psychic medium…

Sit Anywhere

When you come to a reading don’t worry about where you are in the room, it doesn’t matter where you sit. If your loved one has a message, that message will find you. I have had messages for people sitting at the back of a room as often as I’ve had them for people at the front. The important thing is to come to the event with an open heart and a positive attitude.

That is why I treat every seat at my event like the front row. Each event is a group experience, and every seat is a good seat. I might get pulled to the way back corner to deliver a message to a mother who lost her son. Later, I may be pulled to the middle of a row to talk to a woman who lost her sister. Going in, I never know where the messages will be going, all I know is to listen and follow the direction of Spirit.

Be Patient

When your loved one has a message for you, that message will come when the time is right. Messages from Heaven don’t always come when we want them to or when we think they should. The messages come when we need them to and when we are supposed to receive them. Remember that time doesn’t matter, If your loved one passed recently, that doesn’t make it any more likely you will hear from them. Many times, It can be the ones that passed years ago that come through the strongest. If you don’t get a message during a reading, that doesn’t mean your loved one doesn’t want to talk to you. It might just mean that isn’t the right setting, and they will reach you in some other way.

Keep in mind that sometimes it can take up to a years time for a loved one to come through with a message. Not all the time, but sometimes it might take a little longer to hear from that special someone. This doesn’t mean they are not with you, it just means they are waiting for the perfect moment. Spirit will only deliver a message when you are ready to hear it and when it will help bring you happiness, comfort and joy.

Bring Memories, not Memorabilia

Your belongings don’t help when it comes to receiving a message at a group reading. Your loved ones are connected to you. To your loved ones in Heaven, memories and the soul connection you share are much more important than any physical objects. The physical objects are great for helping you feel the connection, but they aren’t necessary to your loved ones. Bring them if they make you feel good, but remember the connection is in your heart, not in your hands.

Have an Open Mind

Sometimes you might attend an event hoping to hear a message from your mom, but your dad comes through instead. It depends who has a message. You might even get a message from someone you don’t like or didn’t even want to hear from. Sometimes an ex-husband will come through with a message to apologize for bad behavior. It’s so important to keep an open mind and be receptive to whatever comes your way.

A group reading can be a great way to learn about the ways your loved ones try to communicate with you. Remember that they are learning how to communicate in this new way just as much as you are. They might come in a way you aren’t expecting, even through someone else’s reading! I have had many people tell me that even when they didn’t receive a message, the feeling of connectedness and hope of being part of a group reading lifted their spirits and gave them hope.

Don’t Let Doubt Stop You From Attending

The saddest thing I see is when someone comments on Facebook and says they won’t come to a group reading because they are not “guaranteed a reading”. I have to shake my head at that. Even during private one-on-one appointments I cannot guarantee that the certain loved one you want to hear from will come through. No Medium can say that for certain. When I channel a message it is a request from the other side, and it is Spirit who makes the decision on whether they decide to speak.

As the old saying goes ” you never know unless you try”. When you attend a group reading, your loved ones see it as an opportunity to reach you and speak to you. If there is a message waiting for you that you need to hear, they will make sure that it gets delivered to you. At a group reading I don’t pick the people, those in Spirit do. I just am the messenger waiting for the next message they need me to deliver.

I hope to meet you at an upcoming group reading. My team & I have been working hard to add new cities states and locations each week. If there is one thing I can leave you with it’s that each event is so much more that just a show. It is literally a family reunion with Heaven. I hope you will take a look at my upcoming tour schedule by clicking here. Each is a two hour experience where I will be delivering as many messages as possible. There might just be a message waiting for you!
