It may as well be said here that I have serious issues with “traditional religion” and am greatly opposed to much of their doctrine. When you have to control people through instilling a fear of hell and eternal damnation into them, there is something wrong with what you are doing.

Having grown up with neither a belief nor disbelief in a heaven and hell, I was free to come to my own realizations, through my own personal experiences – and not through something that had been written in fragments over a period of hundreds if not thousands of years. In my experience, the only hell that exists is the one that we construct for ourselves. When we refuse to move on from our issues and we continue to dwell upon past mistakes and errors we become our own worst enemy.

These demons that we create have power, the power to control us … should we allow them. As like attracts like, the more we obsess over past failures the more likely we are to repeat them.

As a psychic, I have the ability to instantly recall events from the lives of those who have passed on. When I do such, and the connection is not only a strong one, but one that is rich with information regarding traumatic events that occurred to them, it becomes a visceral experience for me. I will feel adrenaline coursing through me, elevated heart rate, fear and other emotions can become very intense. Whatever physical injuries that may occur will be felt by myself (though not quite as painful – usually) It’s like watching a movie, and becoming one with the action on the screen, quite the ride!

Imagine being able to tap into any point in your life and recalling it with such detail and emotion. We all have that ability once passed and we can become wrapped up in it, a self induced psychosis if you will.

When a person takes their own life, it is often a final desperate act – designed to stop the hurting. Sadly the hurting only truly begins once the person takes their own life … that is until they go through their “life review” in the process of crossing over. Taking one’s life frequently results in additional trauma for those left on earth in the physical world and does not end ones problems. Now that they are dead they have no choice but to witness the additional pain and suffering that their selfish act has resulted in bringing to the ones left behind and to those in spirit watching them. If unable to face the life review and crossing over to the other side, they may end up a “tortured soul” stuck between worlds.

Add to all the above drama, a fear of hell, a fear instilled in you by your society, community,  family and the “pillars” of your community – the “religious” leaders and you have a really big problem with the concept of crossing over – not being scary to someone who feels that they may have “sinned.”

Recently I was fortunate to help someone who was tortured in such a way. The names, locations, ages, and dates have been changed to protect the privacy of the family and those involved.

During a recent phone reading it became clear that the boy that was being asked about was both deceased and traveling around as a ghost. He refused to come through during the  reading and it was only at the end of the reading while I was doing a wrap up and discussing what the client should do with some of the material that came through, that he decided to make the crossing.

This young man of 20 had confessed to his girlfriend that he thought he might be gay and that he was not attracted to her. His girlfriend then threatened to tell everyone she knew about him and he freaked out. Being that this was in a conservative part of the mid-west, it was something that this gentleman was afraid was going to destroy him in the community.  He was so depressed and frightened that he hung himself.

The church that his family went to almost didn’t have a service for him. The pastor initially refused, as the guy had committed suicide, after some “soul searching” he relented and presided over the funeral proceedings. The reason for him taking his life was chalked up to drug abuse as he had an addictive personality and was abusing drugs prior to taking his life. Little did the majority of the community know that he had taken a secret to the grave with him, well almost. Not too long after his death, word of the real reason came to light after his ex-girlfriend began chatting about his conversation with him, prior to his passing.

This individual was so wrapped up in sorrow and anger combined with depression and a fear of going to hell that he was stuck as a ghost. He was continuing to hover around those connected to him and was hurting them with his intensely angry, addictive, depressed, lonely, fearful, and loathsome personality coming through. I was in the middle of chatting about him and how the woman who I had just finished a reading with, needed to take a step back from him. She had a picture of him and though she never really knew him, her husband and others were very close to him and she was being affected by his ghostly presence, as were others from his life. After telling her to let him go, I began the process of calling him to cross over.

I addressed him directly, even though I had not yet established a connection with him, I knew that he had to be listening. I told him that he had nothing to fear and that he should cross over and enter his life review. I implored him to do this not only for himself, but for those whom he cared about, as his presence at this time was detrimental to those whom he loved. I let him know that he could return to see his loved ones after crossing over and after taking the weight off his shoulders. I also informed him that the had loved ones in spirit waiting to meet him, (his grandmother showed up.) Very quickly he came through and confirmed his desire to cross over, I felt a shudder go through me and as he entered the room I was in, his presence brought with it an almost suffocating feeling. I felt the weight of his burdens and angst and watched as he met with his grandmother and stepped into the light to begin his life review. As he left there was a palatable shift in the rooms energy and I felt this sudden lifting sensation within the atmosphere. Suddenly it was lighter, as it was before his presence had appeared.

While all of this was taking place, the woman who I was doing the reading for, felt him come and go as well. She and I then ended the reading, with far more accomplished that we had expected to achieve. During the crossing I had wept spontaneously and though somewhat drained I also felt elated.

Due to the hate filled sermons and the intolerance that so many spew in the name of “god” these types of scenarios will continue to play out over and over. Not until we as a society move away from a fear based religion influenced society and on to an environment where we are tolerant and respectful of those who are not like us, will we find peace.

I am yet to encounter evidence that those who are homosexual, go to hell – I do however have plenty of evidence that our society can in essence assist in creating a hell, though not entirely in the biblical sense. One of my favorite quotes regarding the subject of homosexuality is a comment I heard from Harvey Milk. Once while his spirit was paying me a visit he said that “Anyone who masturbates, is at least part bisexual.” What I have witnessed is that love is love and hate is hate, your sexual orientation has nothing to do with it.

It is with great anticipation that I look forward to a world filled with love and devoid of all talk of eternal damnation, hell, demons and sin. I am not saying that there is no right and wrong, just that we should perhaps move out of the dark ages and leave the bigotry and hate behind.

Today while chatting with a potential client for a guided sea glass hunting and beach combing excursion, my “new” (four years now) line of work came up. She immediately said … “you should know who you are chatting with … as a psychic.” and I said, oh … you mean Satan? She said “Yes!” and I told her that she was way off. I told her that I speak with live animals and that I bring understanding, peace and closure to people. She once again said that Satan was the one I was chatting with. As I had a reading coming up for an individual missing a cat in Saudi Arabia, I was forced to cut our spirited conversation short. Here is what followed:

sorry I made you so mad you had to hang up…I  am sure that nothing I could say could change your beliefs…just wanted to say that if I am wrong about what I believe…well then I am just wrong…but…if you’re wrong, you will have an eternity in Hell to think about it…be sure you’re right!

Truth be told, I didn’t hang up so much because I was mad, as I had a reading that I was scheduled to do and I was nearly out of time and exasperated. Right after getting off the phone with you I helped a woman in Saudi Arabia who needed to be connected with her missing cat. A wealth of details were brought through by the cat having the opportunity to communicate with me on a telepathic level. The cat informed me of the circumstances surrounding his disappearance as well as where his home had been. He told me where the vet was that he was last spotted at as well as describing the home that he now lives in, (he was taken in by another family.) Earlier this year I spent 11 days traveling through NC, FL and IL. I was flown to NC by the Humane Society, so that I could headline a fundraiser for them. I will be working with our local branch of the Humane Society this April for the third year in a row.

Everything I do brings peace, understanding, comfort and closure to people. Not once have I dealt with anything that wanted to hurt those who seek out my services. Having always been a very scientific minded person I have never fully embraced that which I did not have personal knowledge and independent verification of and frankly from where I stand, there is absolutely no way that the animals and the spirits that I am capable of communicating with, have proven to me in any way that they are the work of either demons or evil spirits. Oh sure, there are unhappy spirits out there, those who refuse to move on and stay behind as ghosts and they can be very scary to deal with … if you are not capable of seeing who they truly are. By and large what I deal with is live animal communication and communicating with the spirits of our loved ones.

In my personal experience, the universe is full of wonder and mystery we as a species and culture are constantly moving forward … what was once science fiction or heresy is now reality and fact. 500 years ago if I told you that the world was flat you would think that I was right, but if I said it was round, some might want to execute me. Televisions and cell phones are incredible in that information that is not visible to us, can be “grabbed out of thin air” and then turned into music, and moving images etc. … The more I look at things, the way that I (and I am far from being alone) see things, the “God” that is talked about in the Bible is one that I want nothing to do with, if indeed “Satan” is behind everything that I do and countless other animal communicators and psychics, do … the more and more it seems that the two had their names mixed up. The “God” in the Bible is full of vengeance and is one to be feared. What I do (through Satan (according to you)) is to bring peace, understanding, love and closure to people. (Please note this this is said tongue in cheek as I abhor all that is “evil” and supposedly supported and encourage by “Satan” (who I simply do not believe in.))

What I have are not beliefs, what I have is a deep understanding and peace and joy in all of creation through personal and independently verified experiences. When a recent friend passed, I did not mourn their death, rather I celebrated their life and enjoyed communicating with them on a regular basis since the day they passed. While helping a woman with the passing of her cat, I had the opportunity to actually see his soul leave his body and step onto my lap, (I saw the energy of his soul with my naked eye) where he picked up the conversation we had been having just prior to his passing, only moments before. Once he passed, he relayed a very moving story to me about how much he enjoyed a trip with his person where they had gone to Africa. The cat described the trip in great detail including the fact that he loved hunting the giant bugs in the yard at his persons parents house in South Africa. You simply cannot tell me that was “Satan.”

So … while you have a belief in Hell and that what I am doing is simply the “devils” work, I have peace in the knowledge that what I do is genuine and is for the greater good. I assist animals that have no other way of voicing their concerns, I have saved some animals lives with the information provided by them to me. While working as a psychic detective I have led the authorities to the bodies of the missing as well as located missing animals. The information I provide is not vague, typically it is very detailed and direct, such as street names, descriptions of the physical surroundings, information that only the family or authorities can confirm and much more such as dates, ages, descriptions of individuals involved and even names. I also would like to add that no two spirits or animals feel the same, they are all at slightly different frequencies, so that makes it harder to “buy” that it’s all the work of one entity or a group of similar entities, i.e. demons.
I have been wanting to address this very issue for awhile in my blog and so I will be posting this reply to your email.

One last thought … I do not threaten one with an eternity of burning in hell for not believing what I believe and know to be true … chew on that?
Why should “God” resort to fear … (to keep people in line) if one is a God of love?
