Things That Go Bump in the Night – Part 1

Fear dominates our world these days.  Many years ago, I posted a 5 – part series on this subject and how to deal with it.  We are republishing it now, over the new few weeks.   Enjoy!

“From ghoulies and ghosties, And long-leggedy beasties, And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!” ~Traditional Scottish Prayer

Recently there have been a slew of questions addressed to us, about negative entities, shadow people and what people refer to as demons. The question of how do you trust what you’re seeing and feeling also came up. How do you know it’s an angel you are summoning and not a trickster or negative entity or a demon? How can you protect yourself against negative entities? Over the next few blogs, we’ll be exploring these subjects.

Following are the answers that come from 1. my personal experience and training as a psychic/medium/channel (PMC) with over (yikes) 50 years plus experience; 2. My research into some of the phenomenon is being reported; and of course 3. Information coming directly from the Divine Guidance Team—Archangel Michael, Archangel Metatron, Lord Master Kuthumi and the Orion Energies—Bartholomew, Malachi and Ellery. Some of the answers that will be presented may challenge your current belief systems. This is normal and natural; I’ve always explained to people that what I’ve learned, experienced and receive from the Team and pass along to others, may not also jive with what others have been taught or believe. Just keep an open mind and if the information isn’t something you can accept, then leave it and seek elsewhere. But if you have questions –please feel free to ask and we’ll do our best to answer them.

First of all, I did a bit of research on the subject of shadow people — which seem to come in a several versions and varieties and for any number of reasons. Shadow people – larger than life human shaped dark shadows that lurk in the corner of bedrooms, cars, closets and other rooms of the house – have been studied and reported for generations. There are no clear cut answers according to the research although many have said they are ghosts, inter-dimensional beings, demons or a product of an overactive imagination or part of sleep paralysis dreaming. Some wear fedoras, others have red eyes. Some get chased away when calling on Archangel Michael, others feel friendly and nice.

I know personally if I saw a shadow person with red eyes staring at me at the middle of the night —I’d be terrified. But I never have. Oh, the occasional shadowy lurker can be seen now and again and if they get to be too frightening I simply call on the Divine Guidance Team to take them away. Or I’ll tell them to get out (very sternly and with true intention.) I’ve been known to grab some kosher sea salt (I keep a supply for house blessings) and sprinkle it around the house. This usually does the trick for me.

I don’t have exclusive rights to the Divine Guidance Team –so call on them when you need them. They are there to help. There is a Catholic prayer for Archangel Michael which many use and recite. You can use the prayer even if you’re not Catholic– or simply ask the angels for protection. If you start to feel better (which you should)—then you know they’ve done the job. Here’s the Catholic prayer for protection from Archangel Michael:

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –
by the Divine Power of God –
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

But if you don’t feel better—well, then there may be several other reasons why you’ve attracted something negative to you. We’ll be talking about that in our next blog.

What is Channeling? – Part 3

In our on-going series of blogs on What is Channeling?, we’ve looked at what psychics, mediums and channels are and are not and how they differ. Let’s explore further.

Channels work in the highest vibrations which are why they are able to bring forth such beautiful messages and profound wisdom from the angelic realms and beyond. These non-physical beings have access to this information because they have either no connection to Earth, which essentially is both a school and playground that allows us to evolve to higher levels of being, or if they did, they learned all their lessons and graduated with honors.

Think of these non-physical beings as master teachers – with the best knowledge and wisdom to offer mankind (and womankind!).

Ghosts don’t even know they are dead sometimes –or they don’t want to go into the light because they are afraid or having retained human emotions they hold on to egotistical reasons for not going into a higher dimension of service and physicality which we call ‘the light’ or ‘Heaven’. They can’t deliver such high wisdom and messages.

Spirits once had human form but are now part of a soul collective, although they may hold on to their individuality and personality. They have the choice to stay and serve or come back to learn more. But they were once we know as ‘human’. They have no interest in providing such messages –they are still students themselves.

It is the realm of Higher Beings where Source wisdom lies.

Angels, archangels, nature divas and other non-physical beings, with very few exceptions, have never been human. This is also true of many ascended masters such as various gods and goddess that fall into this category. Some ascended masters were once human and can therefore understand the life of humans and human realm of emotions, fears, frailties and joys. But ascended masters have moved way past that realm of the human spirit and have ‘ascended’ or risen into a much higher vibrational level of frequency that brings them into direct contact with a larger chunk of Source Energy.

While we are all part of that which is Source Energy – note the word ‘source’ — we as humans are still essentially in grade school compared to those ascended masters who were once human. Consider them as obtaining several PhDs. Which is why they are masters and we are still the students. Ah yes, grasshopper, we still have much to learn from these worldly and noble non-physical masters!

The channel or channeler or channeller as they are referred to in Great Britain is the translator or delivery method to obtain these loving and wise messages.

In Part 4, we’ll talk about methods of delivery. Stayed tuned!

Working as a Medium

Theresa Caputo of “Long Island Medium”

As I am going forward, I noticed I’m being drawn to TV shows that reflect my own abilities. The latest is “Long Island Medium” – which is proving to be interesting once you get past the over-enthusiasm of our host medium, whose name is Theresa Caputo and who accent is as broad as the day is long. I originally hail from New York, but I’ve got more of a Manhattan accent as opposed to the very nasal Brooklyn accent.

Beside the drama she brings to the screen –after all this is a reality TV show! — her sessions with her clients are interesting. These people come in pain for they have lost a loved one and seek closure. Theresa provides that closure and provides some peace of mind by connecting the passed-over (the nice term for dead) person with the living people left behind. This is what a medium does – acts as a go-between the living and the dead.

Now mind you, we who are in the business know that we really don’t die, but simply transition to another state of being. The physical body may be left behind, but the soul continues. This is why we are capable to communicating to those who have made the transition.

We are able to ‘tune in’ to that other dimension, often with the help of spiritual guidance, and thus are able to bring forth messages to those of us still in carnal embodiment, i.e. the living. Often the messages are filtered both by our own frame of reference as well as the space-time dimensional veils.
Validation of our interpretation of images, random names, dates and even numbers come from those who knew the departed. This lets us know we’re on the right track –we’re actually in communication with those loved ones that the living seeks.

This communication is a fascinating one for me and I love it when I’m able to truly connect people and have them gain closure or at least some peace. I am grateful for my gifts and the opportunity to share them with others.

There are TV shows that give the general public a glimpse of the world that I am involved in. These shows only are able to show a snippet of this life style and please remember that they are set up for dramatic effect. “Long Island Medium” is particularly set up for dramatic effect with Theresa’s family and her own inability to practice medium discernment with others. But the emotional after effects of clients’ emotions appear to be genuine. And that is nice to see. And what any medium strives for in providing this unique and sometimes startling work.

Blake has been able to talk to ghosts and spirit since she was a child. She still stays in regular touch with her mother and father this way.

Good-bye Barnabas

Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins
When I was a young teen, I would rush home every day from school to watch the gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows. Next month Tim Burton, who bought the rights from the producer Dan Curtis’ estate are making a remake with Johnny Depp as the beloved vampire Barnabas Collins. This live TV show would be considered campy in today’s world, although at the time of airing, that was not the intention. So today’s version will be humorous –and not my generation’s beloved Dark Shadows.

The original Barnabas Collins was played by Canadian actor Jonathan Frid, who on April 13th transitioned from this world to the next of natural causes at the age of 87. He and the other original actors have cameos in the new movie.

Long before Twilight and all the other vampire movies and TV series of today, there was the tragic figure of a vampire, Barnabas, cursed by a witch to exist among his relatives in Collinwood, Maine. The original series had vampires, ghosts, witches and werewolves among the denizens. Many a story line was based on literature and mythological stories; I learned later, which of course made me want to study the original literature.

Dark Shadows feed my natural passion for all things that go bump in the night. It allowed me to expand my horizons into the world of the supernatural, much like Star Trek did for space exploration. I have very fond memories of this time and this shadowy TV world. I plan to watch the movie—it won’t be our Dark Shadows, but it will stir fond memories and perhaps provide a laugh to the darkness.

We bid adieu to Mr. Frid and wish him well on his journey; he provided great entertainment for us Dark Shadows fans everywhere.

Blake would indeed rush home every day from school and plunk herself and her sister down and watch the gothic soap opera. Her fandom was based on the creepy story line and on how hot-looking the werewolf, Quentin Collins played by actor David Selby, was. Mr. Selby, now in his late 60’s – early 70’s was last seen as one of the main lawyers in the award winning movie, Social Network.
