Connections to the Dead
It is a driving force in all of us to want to stay connected to those loved ones who have passed away. This need sometimes compels us to attempt to make contact with our loved ones through séances, mediums, tarot, or any other way we can.
There have been occasions where I have been able to connect to the spiritual energies of the dead in order to help them with something. Usually it’s if they have gone missing and need their bodies to be found, or if they are stuck in this plane and need help moving on.
There is a difference between trying to help those who have passed and attempting contact for the living mourners. The problem with that is that once they have passed on they are no longer a part of this world and it holds back their progress if we attempt to keep pulling them back.
It is important to remember that they love us too, and do not necessarily want to leave us either, so our grief and pain pulls them back to us, at their own expense. Those we love will never be far from us and it is our love for them that gives them the strength to go forward.

As a professional psychic medium with a 30 year practice, I disagree with what you are saying here. We certainly DO NOT hold back our loved ones simply because we want a message. That is hogwash! We are ALL energy and energy does not die, therefore you are not pulling anyone back from anything by "talking" with spirit who has passed on. They are "there" no matter what you say or do.
Secondly, as a medium I don't know when the last time was that I would have used TAROT to call on those who haver passed! Tarot cards are for divining information, not talking to the dead.

I appreciate your comment on those who have gone on. Certainly we are all energy whether we inhabit our earthly bodies or not. I agree that we can contact our departed loved ones and that they can attempt to contact us. But I see us all as spiritual beings who continue to grow and evolve after death. In some cases the strength and power of our grief can cause the departed to focus toward our living world instead of on the path of their own progress.
And for the record, I do not use "TAROT" to connect to the energy of those whom I have been asked to find. I do use the tarot to help define the information they give me and to determine the times, dates and other facts that will aid in the search for those who are missing.

I think it is a great gift that us, as Mediums, are able to connect both the worlds. It keeps us going and comforts us so that when it is our time, we have peace about it!

I am wondering if I have psychic abilities or if a loved one is communicating? I had flashes of very bright light in my vision that only lasted seconds. It was similar to a strobe light. Also. stereo comes on around 3 a.m. This has happened several times over the last year and a half, mostly around 3 a.m. 2 times it happened while I wasnt home, but late evening, night.

My dog passed away and yes I do not agree that I am holding her back, because she continues to come into my meditation in a blue mist. I am sad but had not realize she could connect in this way. At the same time she send a beautiful song You raised me up to sustain me and her, the next day in meditation she came and sent the song I just call to say I love you. So you see they can communicate from the other side and do NOT want to be forgotten. I think this is just society finding a way to continue to move on for the unexplained. I can continue to move on but will not forget her if she is not forgetting me. love & light elizabeth

I am addressing this to Linda Dalton: I have always wondered about and wanted to know if Sharon Tate and the other Manson victims would like to connect with us and tell us about their murders and afterlife. These murders are as alive now as they were then. If you can, would you please tell us what they have to say. Thank you so much.

I lost my Fiance' (Soulmate) during the night of Dec26,2008 into the 27th. We were in bed and I awoke to her passed away beside me. She was 43. I think of her all the time. I talk to her, but I also wonder if I am holding her back. I know she would never choose to leave my side. I am told my people who did not even know Laura that they can sence her "presence" around me all the time. People have told me of what they feel she is telling me. (trying) wierd things have occured since her death that make me wonder if she is trying to connect with me. Number patters (one's only applicable to us) constantly showing up in almost every series of number's presented to me from confirmation #'s to something, to phone numbers, and many more examples. I don't want her to leave me to be honest. I also don't want to pull her back and be stagnint in life that is over for her. I feel confussed. I wish someone who really had abilitis to communicate with those who have died would help me, rather than just wanting money. If I had the money I would pay.
I miss her unbelievably, and we promised ourselves to eachother till eternity. All this confuses me. I need desperate help to have peace, and sleep again.
Any Idea's or skills you may have, and feel something from this would be more appreciative than words could express. Irishdawndg@yahoo.com
Dawn (I still need Laura) Am I hurting her, by hanging so tight? confussed, and in need of honest connection translation.
