How To Help a Spirit Cross Over

It’s extremely rare, but sometimes when people die they decide not to cross over. Instead, they hover and linger between our world and the next, sometimes hoping to somehow get back into their bodies, or sometimes because they fear judgment on the other side. I see this sometimes with folks who died accidentally and unexpectedly, with people who commit suicide, with people who were murdered, and with people who have committed a heinous moral crime against another human being and fear being judged and sent to hell. If a spirit decides to linger, they will often “hang out” in their

What do spirits do all day in the ether?

Question: What do spirits do all day? Do they eat, drink, sleep, play games, hang out with loved ones? -Katie Answer: On the other side there are no days, and we don’t have bodies, so definitely no eating, drinking, sleeping, or playing the harp. 😉 Spirits on the other side do many things.

I’m afraid to see ghosts standing over my bed. What can I do?

Question:  I’m afraid to open up my psychic abilities because I don’t want to see scary spirits or ghosts standing over my bed in the middle of the night.  Does that happen to you and if so, how do you deal with it? Answer:  When I was a teenager a lot of scary beings used to visit me.  I was able to take control of the situation and open up a can of astral whoop ass on them, but I don’t recommend that approach for most people. In my twenties I shut down my psychic abilities as best I could
