Do Spirits Connect with Souls in the Physical?

Spirits most definitely do connect with their loved ones.

In native traditions, people view souls by crossing their eyes and by watching the soul release from the cord.  Spirits that cross over to the other veil, as we call home, need to connect with their loved ones especially during the first year. They can do this through movement of objects, working with electrical components, pennies and dimes on the floor, and even words that grasp our attention.  Some spirits are clever enough to have specific smells that are clearly able to be identified by their loved one who was left behind.

During the first year, spirits are extremely active and are adjusting to their new environment. It is important enough for those souls to connect with their loved ones to share that they are present and are safe and comfortable. During a reading, I feel it is important to convey to my client that not only is their loved one doing well, but also it is important for me to define specific validations and names, dates and be able to document what I hear and then convey to the sitter. Fortunately, I do not have recall when I come out of a trance.

Music is a huge component that comes through.  Numbers are exact and dates are amazing. Spirits definitely connect with those who remain in the physical.  Some people are more in tune with what they hear and see.  The five senses are important to the physical but the ability for souls to move material items are incredible.  Televisions can go on by themselves when the remote is in another room. Songs come on the radio that have meaning. There are not any coincidences.  Radios turn on by themselves.  Lights go out and sometimes they go on by themselves.  Doorbells have been known to ring on their own and candles that do not drip can even drip.

Pennies and dimes have important significance. Some spirits are not happy to have crossed and thus we look at these spirits as lost souls who need assistance to move onward. They tend to stick around us and aggravate us.  I was once in a friend’s home when I entered a room, I opened the closet door, and I was physically pushed out of the room.  My friend asked me, “Did you feel what transpired– because my entire family refuses to enter this room.”

“Yes,” I said and asked, “Do we call in “Ghost Busters?”

If we need to clear the energy and remove that unhappy spirit that is stuck, we can help them move on.  There are those people who deal specifically with assisting the spirits to move to the light.  Sometimes it is difficult for spirits due to numerous reasons.  One could be suicide and regret.  Another could be they feel their  home has been taken over by another family.  These spirits need TLC and the direction from a specialist to remove their negative energy and clear the space.

Many times when a person is in the hospital and ready to cross over, they try to link onto one specific person in the physical body that is open for acceptance.  It is essential for one to be closed and to assure safety through guides and sage.

Bradford College in Haverhill, Massachusetts, where I spent my first year in school, was haunted.  One night a group of friends came to visit and the lights went out in my room.  The light fixture began to shake.  About eight of us curled up onto a twin bed with the blankets over our heads.  The girl across the hall tried to use her phone, and to her disbelief, it was disconnected.  She ran to open the door when the lights turned out.  She reached for the doorknob, but the knob fell off as she turned.  Screams were heard all over “Red Carpet,” the floor we lived on in Academy Hall.  Years later, the school was written up in the newspaper as “the haunted college that was closed.”  Apparently, many years prior there was a suicide above my room and an incident when Shirley Temple went to the school while it was an all-girls school.  Having gone to the school as a co-ed school, I felt nervous crossing over “The Tupelo Bridge” as did most of my friends.  After I transferred to a university in New York, closer to home, I asked my mother why she sent me to a haunted college.  She knew I was half-joking, but when the article was written about ghosts in Haverhill’s Bradford College, we realized there were spirits who were uncomfortable with the presence of people in their territory.

Spirits do connect with their loved ones.  They are most active during the first year during their transition, and ghosts continue to share their presence round the clock until they are released with an expert in the “Ghost Buster” field. Our loved ones want to be there and continue to share the love they have for us and validate specifics.  Their personalities remain the same.  Spirits most definitely connect with those in the physical and many times they connect as soon as they cross over to the other veil.
