-Unanswered Prayers or Dashed Dreams-

Frequently in life we find ourselves in a situation where we feel that our prayers are not being answered. When something does not go the way we wanted or expected we can find ourselves wondering “What did I do wrong?”

On occasion when we are met by such an obstacle we feel helpless or as though our spirit guides are asleep at the wheel.

Consider this, we do not always appreciate the bigger picture.

Take a look at the example below:

Stella dreams of a life on the big screen. She has gone to all the right schools, studied under the right instructors and has been told that she has what it takes to be a star.

One day Stella hears of an audition for a television series where she fits the requirements for one of the leads that they are casting, and excited about the opportunity to finally make it big, she auditions. (While it’s not a movie, she figures it will give her exposure and lead to something on the big screen in the future.)

The audition goes very well and she feels that she has got the part.

A week later she receives a phone call from the casting director, they inform her that while it was close, she did not get the role.

Devastated she begs and pleads with her spirit guides and loved ones to move heaven and earth for her so that she may get the part on the TV series.

Her guides heed her call to action and miraculously she is called back three days later with the news that she has landed the role, the actress that they had cast had just signed on to another project, something about her taking the lead in a new movie that was being filmed.

Now let’s roll the clock back to the day that Stella got the phone call that she had been passed over for the role in the TV series.

Instead of being sad and disappointed about not getting the role that she wanted, she looked at it as a sign that there was something better out there for her, after all she wanted to star in a movie and not be on the small screen, (not that there is anything wrong with television, mind you … it just was not her dream.)

A day later her agent calls regarding an audition for a movie, the first in a trilogy of movies and it is a major production with a huge budget and big names … they just need a new face for the lead female role.

At the auditions she gets a very good vibe from the casting directors and ends up getting a call back the next day.

After the movies release, she is reading the news and while the movie she just was involved with is being considered for best picture at the Oscars, the TV show that she had auditioned for is being canceled after three episodes.

She was finally realizing her dream.

Sometimes we get too caught up in the day to day struggles of life and find ourselves willing to compromise our dreams. We believe that being told “no” or not succeeding to achive some of our small goals is an indication of overall failure … to live our dreams.

When we compromise or are willing to let defeat control us, we will find ourselves playing second fiddle to our dreams.

When we allow our stumbling blocks to become our building blocks, we can realize our true potential and live out our dreams.

Much of life is about perspective … the way that we view others, the way that we think that others view us is part of the way that we view ourselves.

Thoughts are very powerful. When we view things as being negative or bad for us, we reinforce that perception.

Placebos are very powerful in demonstrating the ability that our minds have to alter the physical world around and within ourselves, or at least our perceptions of such.

When we look at our “problems” it is helpful to put some context to them.

In the work that I do, I come into contact with people from all over the world. Here in America we have a great sense of entitlement or detachment from what is a struggle for much of the worlds population.

For the most part here in the good old US of A, we look at our nation as being the best in the world. Nearly all of us have a roof over our heads, some of us even have land, acres even! In addition to that we almost all have electricity, clean running water and sewers that work. Then there are the cars, not just one per a household, some have several and the boats, the RV’s the motorcycles and whatever else you have for recreational gear.

Now the majority of us here have friends and family who live nearby and are glad to lend a hand in difficult times. No one checks to make sure that you are not from another race or tribe, you are able to travel freely about the country without too many worries. The police for the most part do their best to protect us and to uphold the laws – which we took a part in forming through our legal system which though far from perfect, sure beats the heck out of a lot of other places.

All in all we have it good here, there are drive through fast food outlets and a ridiculous number of services which deliver to your door most anything you can ever imagine wanting.

We take for granted all of these things … when in many parts of the world, such things are simply dreams at this point.

The other day I was providing a reading for someone in Eastern Europe, when I suggested checking the local shelters and seeing if they would be of help with regard to a particular situation, the client told me that such things did not yet exist in their country.

Can you imagine the United States with not a single animal shelter let alone laws against animal cruelty? In many parts of the world that they have no animal rights and or services …

As long as we can avoid compromising our dreams and just settling in order to feel like we got something, things will continue to happen to make a difference towards making our dreams a reality.

Remember that your problems are only as big as the perspective which you place them in.

All in all we have it pretty good here in America, we just need to shift our priorities away from material wealth and instead focus on enriching the human experience on a global level. The happier and better off our neighbors (on a global and local level) are, the happier our planet is.

May all your dreams come true,

Movie Poster for the Lovely Bones

Poster for th Lovely Bones

Four years ago I read “the Lovely Bones” and found that while the book had some serious issues regarding the actual way things are once you die, (from my experience) that overall it was a good read. So … it was with much anticipation that I waited to see the movie once I heard a film was going to be created based upon the book. Soon after the movie came out I tried to see it in the theater, but for one reason or another it never happened. Recently I finally got a chance to see the movie and no disrespect to the actors, but it was not that great.

First of all there is the issue with taking a book that deals with sensitive subject material regarding a juvenile who is abducted, raped and murdered. That alone does not translate well from book to screen, it’s easier to read about than to watch … like a fly on the wall. Granted the film skips over the sexual assault, but still it’s uncomfortable to watch the killer going about planning to abduct the girl and then following through on it.

The elements of the story which I enjoyed, the transparency of our lives to the dead … the fact that there is an afterlife, the fact that some here can see the dead and communicate with them is still there, however I feel too much time was spent on emphasizing something that I do not believe exists the way as portrayed in the movie. When someone is “in-between” worlds, it does not appear as a gazebo in the middle of the cornfield that you may have been murdered in or as an odd place with a lighthouse. Instead, the world appears as it is, except there is little ability to interact with it, at least in the fashion that one was accustomed to.

Some of the story was edited and integral parts of the tale were left out, making the story less compelling. The relationship that the girls mother has with the detective who is working her case is skipped over as are a few additional components of the story.

I hesitate to recommend this movie though I do suggest the book. I thought that while the characters in the film were played well by the actors involved, the subject material does not make a good transition to the screen. So in closing, skip the movie and enjoy the book and remember that it is a work of fiction with just enough genuine elements of the interactions between the departed and those present to make it interesting and compelling. Heaven is of course nothing like what is portrayed in either the book or the film.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

Recently I had the most unusual series of events transpire.

A book that someone had written about children’s experiences in the afterlife had been brought to my attention. I did not read the book, but knew a family who had read it to their young and might I add very psychic daughter. After the book was read to her, a ghost appeared in her room and began to bother her. It got so bad that she ended up sleeping in her parents room until things were straightened out with regard to the ghost issue.

The person who wrote this book claims to have the stories central character which is an animal, come to them and ask them to write their story. Being in a position to easily connect with the spirit of this deceased animal that claimed to be a sort of spirit guide for children who had recently passed, I did just that, attempted to connect with them – to no avail. I did however make a connection with a 55 year old male spirit of an individual who was a pedophile.

I was shocked and a bit dismayed, I found the idea that this animal would dedicate themselves to working as a spirit guide to be a bit odd, but when I went to verify the story I was presented by a real threat and not just some animal that was playing games. The spirit of this 55 year old male was still earthbound and frightened my own children – who had also picked up on there being something “off” with the story in the book as it was presented. That night I threw the man out and asked my guides to provide my family with extra protection until this individual had been crossed over.

The story in the book told about a place where children who had just passed could go, the descriptions of the other side included “spirit guides” who would allow you to stay up as late as you wanted, who would give you all the candy you wanted and who would let you play at the arcade all night if you wanted too. The kids also were expected to only play within their own group and they also had to practice “forgiving” each other a lot. They would also practice “forgiving” with the adult spirit guides. They would remain as children and do not return to their higher self, nor do they connect strongly with their own past loved ones and family members, but rather are met by this unusual “animal” who claims to be one of their guides.

On the surface the book and coloring books by this author smack of irresponsibility, they seem to paint a very rosy picture of the other side, one that is so nice … that kids who are having a tough time here or who are just a bit bored, may be tempted to take their own life. The place the author was describing reminded me of “Pleasure Island” in Disney’s adaption of Pinocchio. The book was written by an author who claims to be channeling a pleasant enough animal spirit, but when these details are probed by a psychic, they reveal a very dark and disturbing story.

Essentially what had transpired was the following:

A pedophile who was male and about 55 years of age passed.

This individual may have been a clown or someone who worked closely with children, such as a male nurse at the pediatrics wing of a hospital. (Based upon my own observations and that of fellow intuitive individuals and psychics.)

I tend to believe that he was caught and prosecuted for his crimes and that while incarcerated he was either killed by fellow inmates or hanged himself.

Upon passing he chose to not cross over into the light and instead remained earthbound.

In his wanderings he ran across a very open minded individual who believes the story that he has made up about himself. (He had made himself appear as an animal in human attire to those who came in contact with him.)

Over the years he was able to influence this open minded individual into writing a book that he could use to troll for kids and to paint a pretty picture of the other side.

At one point he had at least 12 ghosts of children that he had “gathered” and which he held some power over.

When it came to my attention that this was anything but a normal book and that there was the spirit of an earthbound and deeply disturbed pedophile roaming the shadow lands, I decided it was time to do something about it. At first I was not sure how to proceed … should I confront the author directly? I felt that was not the best plan of action, what seemed to make the most sense was to simply cross over the individual responsible for all of this. Easily said, but when someone does not want to cross, they often times will dig their proverbial heels in and refuse to budge … or worse, get aggressive with you.

About a day or two after determining that all of this was transpiring and discovering what was really going on, things at the family’s home where they had read the book, got worse. Now a loud tapping at the window had begun at night followed by a ghost under the bed and roaming the little girls room. This time the mother was so frightened that she went to the safe and pulled out a loaded firearm. This time she searched everywhere but could not find the source of the tapping noise at the window and to make matters worse, she felt that she was dealing with something that a firearm would have no effect against.

That night the little girl once again spent the night with her parents in their room and none of the adults got much in the way of any sleep. The following day the mother called my wife and confided in her as to what had happened the night before. She mentioned that her daughter had made friends with several ghost children and recently had been scared by what she described as a lip stick wearing 55 year old man clothed in a dress whom she had seen under her bed. I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation my wife was having on the phone with this woman and feeling the urge to step in … asked for the phone.

The first thing that I told her is that her daughter was right about the man under the bed, I too could see him. The second thing I told her is that he was laughing at her and the way she had ran around with a gun the night before, she had given him plenty of power in giving in to her fear of him and he was enjoying his control over her. During my chat with her about how she had to protect herself and how she had to not show him fear … as that is what he wanted her to feel, a spirit came and tapped me on the shoulder. At once I realized that I was being visited by a former warlord whom I had been visited by nearly two years prior when watching a movie about their life. This warrior figure had come in spirit to let us know that if we required his assistance, that he would be happy to oblige us with lending his strength for what ever needed to be done.

After finishing up with my “real” work for the day, I turned my attention to the task at hand, I had a bad guy to corral.

Upon retiring to my bedroom around seven that evening, I sat down and began to meditate on the best course of action … then it happened, a plan was hatched. At once I began to implement the plan by making the following requests and statements.

1.) I called upon two associates of mine on the other side, both were at one time involved in the mob and have a bit of a reputation as “strong men”. They also make wonderful bodyguards and so I requested that the two of them provide close quarters protection for my immediate family.

2.) There is a group of mounted individuals who as best as I can tell, at one time rode with me in battle in another lifetime. These individuals are for all intents and purpose my spirit guards, I requested that they provide my family and I with 125 yard perimeter protection. (Probably overkill, but, hey … it’s family.)

3.) Then I requested that the warlord who had made the offer of providing his services, send a group of his men to protect the family and the girl whom had been plagued with this nasty ghost.

4.) At this point I directly requested the warlord, (I really don’t like this name, but I do not want to reveal his identity here) to collect a few of his favorite men and to go after this guy who was preying upon these innocent children. It was bad enough to influence someone into writing a highly inaccurate depiction of the other side and what children experience in crossing over, but to mess with children, that’s crossing several lines … regardless of what side you are on.

5.) I then requested that I be kept appraised of every development as it transpired and that what I wanted them to do, was to make it too difficult for this “evil” ghost to stay and continue playing his game.

Soon after everything above had transpired I felt a huge rush of energy course through me and suddenly I felt as though I was flying through the air chasing after a golden yellow ball of energy. As we got closer to the object that we were pursuing I got a closer look at it and the others who were in hot pursuit of it. I could just make out the pedophiles features and saw that the other three spirits who were chasing after him were a bright white colored energy as opposed to a golden yellow color. As we got within 100 feet or so of our target, he seemed to roll on his back and fire back was looked to be projectiles made up of golden energy. I found myself dodging to the left and the right just prior to slamming into our target in a high speed collision that sent him flying. After a few more sequences of chasing him and either myself or one of the others slamming into him, he stopped. I could see him clearly being restrained by four other individuals. At once I felt myself return to the bedroom that I was sitting in at home, I felt somewhat exhausted yet invigorated. I had the tracks of tears running down the sides of my face as a result of the spontaneous weeping that I had experienced while partaking in the pursuit and capture of this individual.

I then requested that he be brought to me so that I could have a chat with him, I saw him dig in his heels and he refused to go with the men who were holding him down. Instead I watched in awe as his being went from a rich golden yellow color to near pure white just before he vanished. I knew at that moment he had crossed – knowing that the gig was up and with nowhere left to run he made the only choice he had, the choice to cross over and go through his life review and to get some help for his affliction. Something tells me his next incarnation may be a bit rough thanks to the karma his actions are going to bring his way.

Now back to the little girl and her bedroom that had been taken over by ghosts of children and by this monster. Several minutes after crossing over the predator, I called the woman whose daughter was being plagued by him, while on the phone with her, we were connected with one of the ghosts who had been under the spell of the mean ghost. He was a young boy who had been in a cancer ward. I could see that crescent shaped scar that ran across the left side of his head, he had passed due to a brain tumor. I asked him if the man who had bothered them was gone and he confirmed it. He also confirmed that there had been twelve children but that as soon as the guy crossed, four other children crossed over to the other side to be reunited with their family and loved ones.

Now that is what I call taking out the trash!
