Feeling Spirit

Spirit has many methods to get a message through to us.  One way I receive messages from Spirit is through sensations, including the feeling of light pressure and the sense of being touched.  I’m not gonna lie, it scared me at first and it made me kind of panicky.  But, now I understand what is happening, I’m communicating with Spirit.

My grandma is the first person I think of when I talk about physically feeling Spirit.  A few days after she passed away, I was woken in the middle of the night by someone pulling my big toe.  I sat up and looked around, thinking it was one of my little boys trying to wake me but, no one was there.  I tried to explain it away and say that maybe I got my toe caught in the sheets or it got snagged in a hole in the comforter.  But, I couldn’t come up with a logical explanation.  (Please note – this happened before I knew about my gifts.)  When I shared this story with my mom, she told me the same thing happened to her the night before.  Then she reminded me of when my grandma told us “When I die, I’m going to come back as a ghost and pull your toes when you’re sleeping.  Then you’ll never get to sleep with one foot hanging out of the covers again.”  Mean, right?  Well, that’s my grandma for you and she stuck to what she said.  SCORE – Me & Mom: 0, Grandma: 2.

In addition to Grandma playing “This Little20206372_1752714878079464_1058866135_n Piggy” with me from the otherside, I have also felt Spirit:

  • touch my hair
  • sit on my bed
  • rest a hand on my shoulder and on back
  • shake my bed
  • and so on…

However, touch isn’t the only way Spirit communicates by way of sensations.  Sometimes, Spirit will communicate how they passed away or an illness they may have suffered from by sharing physical discomfort in an area of my body that bothered them.

I recently had a meeting with someone and I felt pressure and tightness in the middle of my chest from a male, father-like energy.  This gave me the impression of a heart attack.  I asked the woman if she knew a father-like male that passed away from a heart attack and it turned out her father did.  On my way to another meeting, I felt like my lungs were tight and there was pressure on them.  When I arrived to the reading I asked if anyone knew someone who passed from fluid on their lungs.  One of the two women immediately raised her hand and said that her grandfather had fluid on his lungs when he died.

Thanks to physical sensations, you may also sense when Spirit is around but, I’ll go further into that another time.  Spirit has many ways they let us know when they are around and sensations are just one of the many.

Did You Hear That?

20227235_1752709784746640_1677857769_nI’m sure my family and friends were so glad when I finally embraced my gift because I stopped asking them “Did you hear that?” as much as I used to.  I’ve always heard things that others didn’t.  However, it has only been in recent years that I realized that I’m not crazy but instead, those mystery sounds I’ve been hearing my whole life are from Spirit.  The sounds range from the haunted house variety to the comforting and loving kind.

Let’s get the spooky stuff out of the way first.  Hearing my name yelled in the middle of the night by spirit has woken me from deep sleep.  Hearing creepy little kid laughter, like from the movies but, there are no kids around.  Footsteps down the hall in the middle of the night, with no one to make them.  Whistling day and night and no one in the house is whistling.  The sound of people having a conversation in the same room as me, when I’m alone.  Something similar to a radio playing, when there isn’t one on.  One of my least favorites is hearing a whisper in my ear and turning to find no one there.  The sound of large boxes dropping off a high shelf with no evidence of anything falling.  I could go on and on.

Now, the lovey stuff… When I do readings, I hear Spirit tell me names, places, words, sing songs, etc.  Whatever message Spirit is trying to share, they will use sounds to help get the message across to me so that I may share it with their loved ones.  Right now, Spirit will usually just say one or two words at a time and communicate more visually but, not always.

I do love it when Spirit gives me names.  I can’t guarantee I’ll pronounce them right but, I try.  Once a Spirit told me the name Beatrice but she pronounced it “BEE-AT-tris”.  When I told the woman I was reading the name, I made the mistake of pronouncing it “BEE-a-tris”.  Well, Spirit quickly corrected me by saying “No, no, no… BEE-AT-TRIS.”  I quickly corrected myself and told the woman.  She yelled with joy and began to laugh.  She said it was her grandmother’s name and she insisted it be said that way.  That was one of my most memorable moments so far.

Hearing from Spirit used to scare me.  However, since I began sharing my gift, I am now able to see the peace and love that these messages can bring to so many people and that makes it totally worth it.

Seeing is Believing

20217167_1752699054747713_1461176279_nI was just a little girl when I had one of my first Spirit sightings.  I was sleeping at the neighbor’s house.  She was my mom’s best friend and she lived alone since her husband passed away.  I couldn’t sleep because I felt something watching me from the shadows on the other side of the room.  I pulled the covers over my head and closed my eyes tight as I tried to wish the scary thing away.  After some time passed, I built up the courage to peek over the covers just to find the scary thing at the foot of the bed.  It looked like a man-sized, green bookworm wearing a red fedora with a red feather sticking out of it.  Weird, right!?!  I pulled the covers back over my head.  However, I started to feel claustrophobic and had a hard time breathing.  So, I lifted the covers a bit on the side of the bed to let some fresh air in.  That’s when I saw a man wearing slacks with dress shoes next to the bed.  I only saw his bottom half because I didn’t lift the covers all the way up.  That’s when I screamed.   My mom and her best friend ran in and the man was gone.

I’ve seen many different things, thanks to Spirit.  Sometimes it’s a spirit on the side of the interstate.  Sometimes it’s a short movie clip from someone else’s life.  Spirit has even shown me written words and numbers, images of people and things, symbols and so on.

In addition, to symbols, words, images and “movie” clips, I also see actual Spirit at times.  Now, I don’t usually see them as clearly as I would see you because I don’t see them with my physical eyes but, I see them with my spiritual eye.  I guess some would say I see them with my third eye.  Spirits aren’t exactly transparent but, they aren’t usually solid.  To give you an idea of what I mean, take a moment and close your eyes.  Picture in your mind a flower.  Get a good, clear picture of that flower.  Now open your eyes and picture that same flower on a blank wall.  The flower obviously isn’t there but, you can probably still see it with your mind and not your eyes.  Although Spirit communicates with me through visuals, it’s just one of the many ways that I receive messages from the other-side.

Communicating with Spirit

20272152_1752680074749611_1859187205_nPeople often wonder exactly how I communicate with Spirit.  It’s pretty hard to explain but, I’ll do my best.  I receive messages from Spirit with sight, sound, physical sensations, knowledge, and/or smell.

Some of my connections, like my ability to see Spirit, have been around for as long as I can remember.  The way I see them and what they show me has developed over the years.  I don’t just see people but, I’m also shown images, movie clips, snippets from someone’s life and even scenes from my own life from time to time.

When I first heard Spirit, I didn’t know what it was and where it was coming from. I’m sure my husband was sick of me waking him up in the middle of the night asking him if he heard what I heard.  Worst part for him was when I begged him to go through the whole house, checking on the kids and making sure all the doors were locked every time I heard something.  Sorry Honey!  However, like my ability to see Spirit, my ability to hear Spirit has also evolved.  Now, I don’t just hear bumps in the night.  I hear Spirit when they speak to me.

Yes, by physical sensations I do mean I felt something touch me.  Also, I can feel discomfort and/or pressure in areas that have affected Spirit when they were living.  Sometimes the feelings reflect a person I’m sharing messages with.  (Please don’t worry, I don’t ever feel in danger.)

When I say I communicate with Spirit by way of knowledge, what I mean is I just know.  By no means am I saying that I know everything.  However, there are a lot of times that I just know something about someone and there is no way I could.

Scent is not the most common way that I communicate with the other side but, it does happen.  Have you ever smelt perfume that belonged to your long lost grandmother and there is no reason why you should be smelling it? Or have you smelled your deceased grandfather’s favorite flavored pipe smoke with nothing around that could smell like it?  Someone is trying to let you know that they are around.

If you have had any of these experiences, then you probably understand.  If you haven’t, don’t worry, I’ll think of more ways to explain it and I’ll post again soon.  I’ll also share some actually events that happened involving these connections.  Stay tuned!
