Now He Believes in the Hereafter!

Howard and his wife Karen live in Northern California and I have been a friend of Karen’s for about 15 years. 
Karen is a professional hypnotherapist helping those who seek a change in their life, Howard a business man excellent at running his company.
Howard was on one of those usual out-of-town trips working sales with a factory rep.  This trip was to Southern California and Howard is able to stay with his brother
Normally he pays little attention to the psychic awareness that surrounds his world, with his wife’s interest in the paranormal and her friend Nancy (me).
My friend Karen and I have been involved for a couple of years investigating the idea and symptoms of ghost attachments.  Sharing with Howard what she is learning, Howard had not discredited her; but, casually dismisses her excitability and awe of spirits and ghosts.
Some of this excitability is contributed to my ability to see spirits and ghosts and to give a physical description of who is occupying your house with you or perhaps whom you are sharing your body with.  I have shared amazing ghost stories with her and helped her identify an “attachment” on a client seeking her out for help.
She came up with a great expression, “Where is that rabbit home!”  Meaning, Alice has a new adventure awaiting her down the rabbit hole!
Recall a moment of clarity when you have that “ah ha” moment, that perhaps that ghosts do exist.  You will not ever forget that moment, nor will your life be the same after that.
Or when you see something out of the corner of your eye?  You want to re-collect time and back it up, to remember every small detail again.
Now let me tell you about Howard.
Howard saying goodnight to his brother and his family headed up to bed.  After a visit with family and a late dinner, getting up in the middle of the night can be a nuisance but necessary.  He awoke and strangely he felt as if someone where looking at him.  Brushing that thought aside he got up and turned on the light next to the bed.  Traveling down the hall and back again he did not recall that strange feeling as he had gotten up.  Sitting down on the bed and pulling up his legs, he glanced to the end of the bed and saw a taller lean translucent form of a man sitting next to his feet.  Then looking down the height of the man to the bed, this spirit form actually made an impression!  Surprised, he could tell the man was looking at him!
Taking his breath, not knowing what to do, his logic just said, “Turn off the light and go to sleep, all this will go away.” 
Calling his wife Karen the next day Howard could almost not wait to tell her what had happened and if he should tell his brother that they had a “ghost” in the house.  She could not wait to ask me what I thought.  She calls me and gushes, “You won’t believe what happened to Howard!”  At first I thought perhaps he had won the big Lotto, because certainly she was acting as I would if I had won.
I stopped her and ask her to please tell me what happened.  She was able to tell me all about the trip and Howard saying he had seen this spirit.  Then she asked, “Anyway could you clue into who the spirit was?”  In telling me the story, she did not tell me how he had seen details about the spirit.  I gave a description of the taller-lean, grandfather looking spirit; and added that he wanted me to know that he was from the mid-west and that he had died of cancer. 
Karen thanked me and took this description and talked to Howard on the phone.  Howard did not recognize the facial, location and cancer comment.  He turned around and talked with his brother who explained that I had described their father.  Their father had been dead for some time, and Howard could not believe his father would visit him!  The brother confirmed and reminded Howard that he had been raised in Cleveland Ohio and died of cancer.  He had been a taller-lean man with a sharp jaw and skin coloring as I had said.  Karen told me after Howard had talked to his brother a metamorphosis had come over him, shaking his head he declared he was now a believer!
After all these years, Howard has now awakened!  Welcome Howard to the real world of the paranormal and to the continuity of life and survival.

Spirit Grandma Grace Came for a Visit

She had called me up in the late morning and said we need to talk!  This was yesterday September 29th, at work she had had that ‘moment’ and asked of herself the ultimate question, “What am I doing? And where am I going?”
Since she is a returning client, I had time in the afternoon and at 2:00 PM we set up the appointment to talk.
I called her promptly at 2:00 PM; she chuckled and asked how much time I had for her.  “Humm, sounds like you have something serious to talk about.” 
This was a private session, so I cannot tell you details.  She allowed me to do the talking, and I covered many of the topics she was most concerned about before 25 minutes had passed. 
Her voice quickened and she needed to close up shortly and get back to her hair styling job. 
“There is a fine line between co-incidence and faith.”  A great line in one of great “Mummy” movie series, and here I will make reference to this as I go on to explain what happened next.
Around 25 minutes into the session, I paused and then said, “I wonder who is telling me this for you?”  Quickly as I said that, I was shown such a sweet looking “grandmother” very light skin, such apple shaped cheeks and very blue piercing eyes.  She appeared small in stature with a very small frame.  I explained everything I was seeing, my Client just said over and over, “I can’t recognize her.”  I told her not to spend time in the session figuring out who she is, but that she was there for her.  I made a comment, “I think she could be a great-grandmother” to your family.  I will par-phase what she gave to me next, “Take your time, be you and happy. “
My client then added, next time we need to talk about “religion”.  I quickly got that this was not the session to discuss this topic.  We finished up with a couple extra, “how to get started with her life” statements.
Later that evening, she had got off work and driving home she had another one of those moments, “Oh My Goodness that was my ex-husband’s Grandmother!”  My Client had been married for two decades and divorced five years ago.  She was very fond of her ex-husband’s Grandmother Gracie and loved her and Grandmother had loved her in return. 
Gracie passed away last February, when my client attended Grandmother Gracie’s funeral the family had included pictures of her as part of the tribute slide of family pictures.  Gracie's family told her how much they missed having her in the family; and that divorce sometimes means you divorce not a spouse but an entire family.
Very emotional she called her adult daughter and told her of our talk together and that I had brought through Grandmother Gracie. 
Her daughter then said, “Really?  Did you know that Dad and I took Grandmother Gracie’s ashes to her family plot in Oregon yesterday?” 
In response to this, my Client could not believe the co-incidence and that Gracie had wanted “her” to be happy in her life.  She said this message had brought her such comfort to know that this lovely lady still loved her.  My Client also expressed amazement that Gracie also said she was a “great grandmother,” which she was to my Client’s children. 
The next afternoon, we talk again and I asked what about her religion question?  My Client had mentioned her frustration with the ‘rules’ of her church.  Though I do believe that a church environment can be emotional healthy place to connect with like-minded people, for her to be in a hostile environment was not good. 
I wondered how Gracie showing up affected her idea of “a church environment talking about religious thought”.    She paused and considered this for a minute.  Clearly spiritual thoughts, actions and co-incidences happen every day to show us hope and a reason for happiness.  But, add the purposeful appearance of a “spirit family member” and the co-incidences combined makes an overture of “something more” and “the Divine” which makes “faith” in our purpose more real than ever before.  For if we survive, than clearly we are here for a purpose of “Living and Learning all we can of Life”.  
I asked my Client if I could type this story up and she said she would also follow up with an e-mail so I can post it with the Testimonials at my web site
