the truth 2

The summer of 2013 was an amazing spiritual experience for me.  In late July, I took a family vacation to Europe where I received additional information about my past lives and had the surreal opportunity to visit my tomb at the Cologne Cathedral.  Two weeks after coming home, I then went alone to the Monroe Institute in Virginia for an intensive 6 day workshop in out of body training.  The course was taught by William Buhlman.  The same William Buhlman that I credited in the last chapter of my book as the inspiration to pursue out of body experiences as a continuation of my spiritual journey.  The workshop experience was absolutely amazing and it generated enough material for a second book and a series of blog posts.

Part of the preparation for the workshop was to read (or in my case) reread Bill’s book “Adventures out of the Body”.  Going over material a second time allows one to pick up information and nuances that I missed the first time around. What really resonated with me from the book was the story when Bill went out of body and met with a group of advanced souls who were spirit guides.  Together they discussed the purpose of reincarnation on earth. One guide made a comment to Bill, “We know how tough being in a physical body can be; we have all been there. The ultimate test is to recognize the truth while surrounded by dense illusions (being incarnated.)”   It took a while but I realized that this guide was (in a very real sense) revealing an important final “exam test” question and its answer to we incarnated souls on Earth.  That is, you must come to learn and accept during your time on Earth that we are not human beings but rather spirits who temporarily exist in human bodies.  We also must acknowledge that our earth existence is only one  of many other realities. This particular “test question” is very hard to achieve because we come into the world with amnesia about who we really are (this makes the earth experience much more impactful and scary). To fill the knowledge vacuum caused by our amnesia, our different earth cultures have generated incorrect beliefs about our true nature, making the discovery of the correct answer even more difficult because almost no one would believe the real truth.   Never the less, the end result is that besides all of the other issues we are learning to conquer on earth, our souls do not get to graduate (and to stop reincarnating) until we also discover this ultimate truth about our true nature!  I found this revelation extremely profound.  Luckily for me personally, I discovered this truth in my current life through my enlightenment, so that’s at least one  thing I can check off my long  to do list.

I came home from the Monroe Institute on a Friday afternoon and early the following morning, I was riding with my brother-in-law Jeff to a cross country meet that our sons were running in.  (This is the same brother-in-law who I wrote about in the introduction of my book who encouraged me to tell my supernatural stories.)  During our drive, the spirits would arrange another one of those happy serendipitous, coincidences that I have experienced before.  Halfway during the trip, Jeff asked me about my Monroe Institute visit.  I started to describe to Jeff my discovery of the “final test question” for our souls as I thought that would be the most important piece of information I could pass along. Just as I was starting to spit out the quote from the Buhlman book, Jeff interrupted me.

“Excuse me Frank, but would you read that bumper sticker on the pickup truck that is right next to us?”

“Sure”, I responded and turned to look at the pickup traveling in the next lane.  On the back cab of the pickup truck was a sticker that read “Epic”.   “What’s the big deal about “Epic” Jeff?”

“That’s our main software competitor who is currently eating our lunch.  I thought it was an advertisement for them.  That’s what attracted my attention.”

I turned to look again and reported, “Nope, it’s not about software, it’s about some music band.”  Then I turned my attention to the bumper sticker that was just to the right of the “Epic” sticker. It read, “The Truth is still the Truth even if no one believes it.”

This was no coincidence but a finely crafted message arranged by the other side!  Jeff was the target of this message.  I laughed and then told Jeff the meaning of the bumper sticker and how it tied into what I was going to tell him.

I hope you heed the message Jeff and don’t blow it. I mean, what are the odds of your next life of having another goofy relative  who just so happens to have one of the secrets of the Universe?   You can actually save some future round-trips if you pay attention now.    But, what’s the hurry? You have eternity to get this question right!

765 years to close the circle

 

Reincarntion Story

Frank at the Dome

Here is a mind blowing reincarnation story that took 765 years to come full circle for one soul.  It all started in the 13th century in Cologne Germany.  The then ruler and Bishop of the Cologne region, Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden, perceived the need to create a bigger, more magnificent Cathedral to house the bones of the Three Magi that were brought to the City by his predecessor decades prior.  An increasing number of pilgrims were streaming to Cologne to venerate the relics and Konrad saw the opportunity to increase the prestige of the city and to draw even more pilgrims.  Konrad set in motion the process of planning and financing the new Cathedral.  In 1248, he laid the foundation stone for the choir of the cathedral. In 1261, Konrad was assassinated, but the building of the Cathedral continued.  Medieval cathedrals take centuries to complete and this was certainly the case for the Cologne Cathedral.  Building was halted in 1473, leaving it unfinished for 400 years.

In the 1500’s, the soul of Konrad returned to life as Thaddeus, the abbot of the Cistercian monastery of nearby Kamp-Linfort. Coincidently, Abbot Thaddeus did visit the unfinished Cologne Cathedral on more than one occasion, but never realized his intimate spiritual link to the Cathedral.

300 years later, the German government restarted the construction of the Cathedral and it was finally completed to the original plan, in 1880. It was not until August 1st, 2013, that the soul of Konrad once again returned to his cathedral in the body of Frank Mares.

I described my spiritual enlightment and discovery that I had once lived a life as the Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden in my book My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway.   It was only natural that I would want to visit the Cathedral and took the opportunity during our family vacation to Europe. Our vacation started in London and then we moved on to a few days in Paris.  Finally we took a train to Cologne.  The Cologne train station is situated literally right next to the Cathedral.  When I stepped out of the train station and beheld the sight of the huge and beautiful Cathedral, my face broke out in a big grin. I definitely felt a connection to the place.  Dragging my wheeled suitcase behind me, I rushed to the front of the Dome to get a better look.  I felt entranced and my wife had to drag me away so that we could find our hotel.

During our day and a half visit to Cologne, I visited the Cathedral three times. The first time I went alone when my family was settling into the hotel room. I walked through the massive front doors and came across the holy water fonts.  In my life as Frank, I was always very uncomfortable with Catholic rites of worship, however, in this Cathedral, I took the holy water and made the sign of the cross.  This was the first time I ever did this rite in my current life.  I then went to the pews and knelt to pray (another first for me).  My prayer was simple; I thanked God for my enlightenment in this life. Then got up and took in the magnificent ceiling and stained-glass windows. I then went to the back of the Cathedral in the choir section, the volunteers of the Cathedral were shooing visitors out of the area as the floors were being cleaned.  I only caught a glimpse of Konrad’s tomb, before I had to turn back.

The next morning, Karol and I visited the Cathedral while the kids slept in.  I brought a white rose with me so that I could leave it at Konrad’s tomb.  Together we made our way back to the choir area and stood by St. John’s Chapel where Konrad’s effigy and tomb lays facing a beautiful stained-glass window.  I paid homage to my old self by placing the rose in the iron fence grid that encloses the chapel.  Karol snapped pictures of my little ceremony. I took some time to gaze upon my old face, it was hard to break away and leave that particular experience.

Coming full circle

Right next to the tomb of Konrad, is a large mosaic of Konrad holding the building layout of this Cathedral flanked by his clergy and also flanked by a knight holding Konrad’s sword and shield.  Karen put a picture of me holding my book over this mosaic. This mosaic lies between Konrad’s tomb and a magnificent jeweled golden box that contains the relics of the three Magi.  Karol and I admired the beauty of the Golden box. When you step back and think about, those relics were the very reason my soul started this unique spiritual journey.  I now closed the circle.

Later that day, I visited the cathedral again with my daughter Jani, where visited the cathedral’s treasury museum.  We were cautioned by the ticket clerk not to take photos in the museum.  In one of the rooms, I found the Bishop’s staff (also known as the Crosier or Bishop’s crook) that Konrad once used.  Made of gold it was a stunning piece of art. It was mind boggling to think that I once held that staff in a different body.  I had my Iphone with me.  Although it was verboten, I took a picture of my old staff.  I gave myself permission.  Why not?  This was my cathedral and that was my staff!

I am going to visit my Tomb!

reincarnation stories

Konrad’s tomb at the Cologne Cathedral

Here is a reincarnation story that might be a classic!  I am actually going to visit my tomb in Cologne’s Cathedral on August 1st during my family vacation to Europe.  I don’t think there are many people who can say such a thing.

It all started last winter when my wife was reviewing ideas for our annual summer vacation.  She had her heart set on going to Europe and I saw an immediate opportunity to visit some of my past lives’ landmarks.  With only a limited 12 days to spend, she wanted to concentrate on London, Paris and Salzburg.  I wanted to visit the tomb of Konrad Von Hochstaden in Cologne and Nicholas Des Fours’ castle in Czechoslovakia. For those of you who are married, you know that marriage is always a matter of negotiation, so I had to settle for one day in Cologne.  Konrad von Hochstaden or Nicholas never would have settled, so I like to think that I am making progress as a soul.

I really do not know what to expect when I visit a body that I used to reside in.  Will there be some kind of spontaneous memory? Or some kind of physical reaction?  Or will there be no reaction, because it is said that after souls leave their bodies upon death, they have no real interest in their now useless body.  The body that I will be visiting has not been used since 1261, so I am really not expecting a paranormal event, but you never know.  I am not quite sure what I will do at the tomb; perhaps leave a flower and a copy of my book there.  I definitely will have Karol take a picture of my beside it.

Speaking of past life memories, last week I spoke at a Hypno regression demonstration hosted by Jeremiah Wolfe of Columbus Ohio.  Jeremiah is a hypno-therapist who specializes in past life regression.  In my book, Brenda Posani hypno-regressed me to the time of my WW2 life as Otto.  I had really hoped to see images of that past life during that session, but that did not happen.  During Jeremiah’s event, he had a segment where he hypno-regressed everyone attending the seminar at the same time.  Before going under, I asked Spirit if he/she would reveal some scenes from my Konrad life as I was going to Cologne shortly.  During the exercise, I was so happy to actually see images!  First was a cartoonish image of an Arch Bishop decked out in “all of his” splendor.  When I mentally asked who that was, the word Konrad was written out in cursive.  I then was rewarded with a vision of the dark inside of a large wooden building.  Outside was a log palisade wall that was there for defensive purposes.  I then saw a medieval soldier in chain mail and armor working on the wall.  I later learned that I was viewing the scene through Konrad’s eyes as he was visiting the barracks of his troops.  I thought the experience was beyond cool!  I was really appreciative of finally seeing my past.  When I get back, I will be sure to describe the adventure of visiting “my” Cathedral.

Hanging about on 9

Reincarnation story told by a spirit guide

Otto’s Cap

This post is a reincarnation story and a psychic story all rolled in to one. In my continuing quest to learn how the spiritual world works, I made my quarterly visit to my psychic trainer Brenda Posani for another reading. My specific objective was to interact with my spirit guide Morton. I wanted to learn more about him and to try to establish a more personal relationship with him. If you read my book, you will recall that Brenda introduced me to Morton several years ago in another reading, describing a scene where he was having an egg fight with another guide named Gulliver. Brenda told me then that Morton was my main guide.
Many psychics do have personal relationships with their spirit guides because they can have a 2 way dialogue with them. I do not have this luxury because my psychic messages are limited to yes and no answers. It’s hard to establish a conversation when all you can receive is a simple yes or no. This limitation requires that I initiate all questions with my guide (or any spirit) and it would take a tremendous amount of time to get any interesting information from him. I had used Brenda in the past to have conversations with my deceased father and that worked out very well as my Dad would pretty much communicate in simple English sentences without much symbolism. My hope was that I could set up the same type of dialogue with Morton. I thought it would be helpful to find out about his most important prior lives to get some context about him and why he was assigned to me.
On May 1st during a meditation session at home, I asked Morton if was up for an interview through Brenda, I received a yes response from him. I then asked if I should make an appointment with Brenda the next day which was a Thursday and the answer was no. When I suggested Friday, Morton agreed. I then booked a 2:00 PM appointment with Brenda through her website.
On the Friday morning of my reading, I took the opportunity to go the outdoor gun range at Delaware State Park. (No, I am not getting off on a tangent; my gun range activities that day had a spiritual connection.) My mission was to break in my new M-16 assault shotgun. The shotgun looks and feels like a regular army M-16 assault rifle except that it shoots shot gun ammo. To get the semi-automatic feature to work correctly, the gun’s manual said that you have to shot at least 100 rounds through it to break it in. Since I was going to the range anyway, I brought along some of my German WW2 weapons, the MP-40 submachine gun and my Walther P-38 pistol to also shoot. Since it was a fairly warm day, I wore cargo pants shorts, hiking boots, a solid gray T-shirt and to literally “top it off”, my wool gray-green WW2 German Edelweiss cap. Why did I wear that cap? Maybe by wearing the cap I wore in my immediate past life, I was trying to call upon that life’s military skills to help me with my new unfamiliar gun. Anyway, my look that morning was “military casual.” As usual, I got a late start to get to the range which is a 30 minute drive from home. I had an enjoyable time shooting all three of the guns, but I had to hustle back to get to my appointment with Brenda. I had just enough time to drive back home to stow my weapons back into my gun safe, but I had to take the short drive to Brenda’s office in the same clothes that I wore to the range. I think I faintly smelled of burnt gunpowder. I barely made it to Brenda’s office on time.
Bursting through her door at 2:00 pm, we went to her office to begin the reading. I told Brenda that I had already set up an interview with Morton and that I wanted to have a conversation with him. It did not take long for Brenda to make the connection with Morton, but unfortunately, he was not going to communicate in simple sentences like my dad. He instead stayed with symbolic language.
Brenda reported, “He keeps saying, “Hanging about on nine”. What does that mean?” To help solve this mystery, she then asked me what the ninth planet in our solar system was.
“I don’t know, its Neptune or Pluto”
“Maybe he’s hanging around that planet,” pondered Brenda.
Many times you receive symbolic messages that you just cannot decipher immediately. I tried to move on by asking Morton a question, but Brenda replied that Morton kept on repeating the phrase, “Hanging about on 9”.
Since Morton was being persistent about it, I knew I had to put greater effort into figuring out his message.
“Maybe he is talking about me instead,” I ventured.
“Ok, what does the number nine mean to you?” asked Brenda.
I had to think about that question, because nothing immediately hit me. Then I made the connection.
“The subtitle to my book is “the true story of a man who found nine of his past lives”. If you take those nine lives and put them in chronological order, my World War 2 life as Otto the German Sergeant would be life 9. My guide is obviously referring to me reenacting my “ninth life” this morning by going to the gun range and shooting the very same weapons that I shot in my prior life. Plus I was wearing the same cap Otto would have. It’s fascinating to realize that he was watching my activities that morning and had the wit to make a funny comment about it.
With that funny revelation, we were able to move on where Morton revealed that he was once an explorer in two of his past lives as a Viking, crewing with Leif Eriksson and later was a Spanish conquistador in South America. In a future blog post, I will reveal what Morton’s exploration background has to do with me. All I can say is that after this life, he is going to take me somewhere fascinating!

Can you meet your past life personalities? I did!

Reincarnated past lives

 

Here is a reincarnation story where my past lives intersect with my current one.

The first line of my book repeated the famous quote by J. Haldane who said “Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.” This post covers a topic that is a great example of what Haldane could be talking about.  To appreciate this, you must be open to the idea that you lived other lives than the one you are living currently. The idea of reincarnation is a stretch for most people, but if you can go along with that concept, I can show you something that I have actually experienced which has to be considered “mind blowing”. To demonstrate this, we must build upon the reincarnation concept.  If one experiences many lives as you go through time, it’s your spirit or consciousness which transitions between bodies.  There must be a time and place that your spirit or consciousness exist in when it transitions from a dead body to a new one.  We can call that in between place “heaven” or the “spirit world”.  It’s a place that you can actually interact with mentally, if you are a psychic or have the ability to achieve astral projection.

 

The famous Robert A. Monroe was one of the pioneers of out of body travelling or astral projection.  He wrote three classic books about the topic and of his travels in the non-physical world.  All of his books are full of wonder, but one quirky situation always captured my attention.  There were at least three times that he appeared to encounter himself face to face when traveling in a past time.  Once he witnessed his spirit leaving his body after his death in an ancient battle.  Another time, a future version of himself rescued his astral projected self from a scary situation after he left his body during his current life.  Another time, he had conversations with the personalities he used to be all in one encounter.  When I read these accounts, I was incredulous which is saying a lot after the supernatural events I experienced. (At that point of my life, I had received psychic abilities and was in regular communication with the spirits on the other side. )How can one possible encounter yourself?  That sounds impossible!  However, chapter 16 of “My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway” explains how time does not exist in the spirit world, that place where our consciousness exists between incarnations.  I realize that this is a concept that few people would be able to wrap their heads around, but quantum physics is already verifying this amazing concept.

 

So if there is no time in the spirit world, then everything exists at one, past, present and future.  If that is the case, then it is quite possible to encounter a prior version of your consciousness on the “other side”. And that is exactly what happened to Robert Monroe.  However, I myself have experienced meeting prior versions of myself. It happened in a psychic reading with my psychic trainer Brenda Posani.  Brenda is a gifted psychic who can see, hear and feel messages from the other side.  Brenda was one of the three psychics who helped me learn about nine of my prior lives or “personalities”. In two of those lives, I followed a pattern of being brutal German noblemen (I was actually able to find their existence and stories in German history).  Both of these prior lives were of medieval warriors of an extremely aggressive nature. Surprisingly, both of them showed up at one of my psychic readings with Brenda.  The first, Nicholas Des Fours, appeared to Brenda as he would be just coming off the battlefield.  His black beard was soaked the blood of those he had just slain.  For the first time ever, I saw that Brenda was freaked out encountering a spirit. I was not troubled by his spirit and actually asked him some questions. I was particularly interested in him as his actions put a big karmic debt on his successor incarnations (me included).I found that he treated me fraternally (if you will) and complimented me that “I was doing pretty well in this life”.  The other personality was of the military arch bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden.  I did not get an opportunity to question him, but Konrad was known for some creepy vices and Brenda was picking up those vibes.  At the end of this session, a more peaceful part of my soul also showed up, the Abbot Thaddeus who lived in the 1500s.  It was an amazing experience to be visited by three different versions of myself! Brenda told me that I would be able to speak with all nine of personalities that I discovered at a future date.  All I can say is that the Twilight Zone is real for me and I just shared another episode of it with you.

Europa will go first

A reincarnation story in the psychic light from the psychic source

 

 

This blog post will not be about reincarnation stories or reincarnation, but rather we go back into the psychic light for a look at a frightening future.

In my last blog post, I told the story of my lastest psychic reading with my psychic source Brenda Posani, where my deceased mother-in-law Mary paid a visit to us. My mother-in-law was absolutely reveling in all of the activities and fun that she was participating in the higher vibration known as Heaven. She was going everywhere, doing everything and having a great time. I was heartened and glad to see that she was doing so well after a tough life. HOWEVER, I did not go to Brenda that day visit with Mom. The reason I went to Brenda was to follow up on a cryptic psychic prediction she made about a year ago when she told me that we would have trouble getting water in the future. Brenda had told me little cryptic things in the past and I store these predictions like a squirrel stores nuts. I then dig them up in the future and have her elaborate on them.  With my recent blog post about rough seas ahead for all of us (a coming economic collapse), I wanted to see if this future event would include a water shortage for us in the United States.
When I asked Brenda to ask Spirit further explain this future water shortage, she told me that the “other side” showed her a picture of a weather balloon. This image signified to me a weather related event which could only translate into the idea of a drought. Last summer, the interior of the United States had a severe drought and our reservoir water supplies in the Columbus Ohio area were greatly diminished to where our lawns could not be watered on most days. I realized that if we had a number of drought years in a row like last summer, water would indeed become an issue. Droughts go in cycles (just like the Dust Bowl years in the 1930s) and greatly affect agriculture. Combining lower crop yields from drought with a high inflation event from a bond market collapse would be a nightmare scenario. I then asked Brenda what comment Spirit had about a coming Economic collapse. Before I tell you what Brenda said, I want to reinforce that economics and foreign terms are not Brenda’s strong suit, so this surprising answer had to come from Spirit. The response was “Europa will go first, then it will come to the United States.” I interpreted the message for Brenda as “Europa” is the European term for Europe and that Europe was already five years into its own economic crisis because of the problems with its Euro currency. It is common economic thought that once Europe collapses economically, it would cause a domino effect that would collapse the American economy and Federal budget because of a spike in worldwide interest rates.
I hope to God that this prophecy never happens, but I had just got confirmation from the “other side”. When will all this happen? For what it’s worth, I asked the “other side” on my own. The answer I received was 2015. Like I said, I hope this is wrong and never comes to pass. But I am getting ready for this big life lesson.

 

The United States is in the midst of one of the biggest droughts in recent memory. At last count, over half of the lower 48 states had abnormally dry conditions and are suffering from at least moderate drought. More than 80% of seven states were as of last week in “severe drought,” characterized by crop or pasture loss, water shortage and water restrictions. Depending on whether the hardest-hit regions see significant precipitation, crops yields could fall and drought conditions could persist for months to come. –Excerpt from Foxnews article 3/21/2013 http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2013/03/21/seven-states-running-out-water/#ixzz2OOsOv294

Reincarnation Press Release

Rock’n Grandma

clairvoyants with psychic power

 

One recent afternoon I went to one of the great clairvoyants, my psychic trainer Brenda Posani, for a reading to follow up on my “rough seas ahead” psychic prediction. I specifically remembered that Brenda told me a year ago that we would (all of us) have a hard time getting water in the future and I wanted to explore if this prior vision of hers matched my dark vision of the economic future. I wanted Brenda’s reading to stick to that subject matter. That was my plan and she did come up with additional scary visions that supported my prediction. However, we will save the “doom and gloom” stuff for a future blog because in the middle of the reading, visiting spirits threw my plans off course (anytime that you open the “psychic speaker phone”, you never know who will join the conversation.) How my reading was thrown off went like this:

“Do you know someone named Louie?” asked Brenda.

“Yes, that would be my wife’s grandfather.”

“Well he’s here, replied Brenda.

Louie was an Italian man and I called out loud in Italian, “Louie, how are you doing?”

Brenda responded, “Your wife has been having a hard time with her mom’s death, hasn’t she?” (This would be Louie’s daughter Mary, my mother-in-law, who recently passed.)

“Yes,” I said.

“Louie told me to tell you that he has been spending a lot of time with Karol trying to console her.”

“Thank you Louie,” I called out.

Just then, Brenda told me she was hearing this rock song by Mollie Hatchet that had these lyrics:

I’m travelin’ down the road and I’m flirtin’ with disaster
I’ve got the pedal to the floor and my life is running faster

Brenda continued, “It’s your mother-in-law and she just arrived. Whew! That’s what that song was about! She is going everywhere and doing everything! She seems to be having a great time over there!”

“Lucky her, I told her that she would be having a great time over there.” I said, “Hey Mom, how are you doing? I knew you would be having fun!”

I then wanted to needle her about something we always joked about when she was alive. My Mother-in-law was a very conventional Catholic. After I received my revelations about my prior lives, I would always make it a point to remind her that I was once a Catholic Arch Bishop. She would always humor me by genuflecting to me, but I knew that she never came close to believing me. Now that she was in spirit and had universal knowledge, I wanted her to admit that I was right.

“Hey Mom, I want you to now finally admit that I was once the Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden.”

Brenda then laughed and told me, “She asks if we really have to go there.”

“Yes we do!” I said, “I want her to finally acknowledge it.”

Brenda responded, “She says alright, you were once an Arch Bishop.” And then Brenda mimicked my mother-in-law making a joking dismissive gesture of her waving me away.

“There, finally!” I said, (her response was not iron clad reincarnation proof, but I will take it!) “And Mom, did you notice me blessing your casket with the sign of the cross with holy water? That’s the only time in my life I ever did that.”

Brenda passed Mary’s response, “Yes I did, thank you for that.”

With that, the spirits of my in-laws moved on. It always fascinates me how spirits communicate in symbolic language, which in this case was the Molly Hatchet song. My mother-in-law never heard of Molly Hatchet when she was living, but yet with her access to universal knowledge, she would use that song to communicate her feelings to Brenda.

On a personal note, it was great to see that my mother-in-law was happy and not in pain anymore. It was also great fun to still kid around with her once again. I am truly blessed in that I have access to my loved ones whether they are in body or out of body. You can too if you find a psychic medium like Brenda or you that you develop your own psychic powers.

Soul Colors

Spirit aura psychically viewed by psychic medium

Today we will discuss the only powerful tool in my bag of psychic ability, that is, I speak of the only time I can honestly share the stage with real psychics and psychic mediums.  This tool I speak of is my psychic power of knowing how well developed an individual soul is.  In plainer words, I have the ability to tell if you (or anyone) are an “old soul”.

This ability started during my psychic development lessons with Brenda Posani, Brenda would make each participant in the class give practice readings to one another.  I of course was at a disadvantage because of my slow download rate of psychic information compared to others.  To give a quick reading, I learned how to read how far a person’s souls had advanced.  That was something that I could do quickly that no one else had figured out how to do. I got this idea from the book “Destiny of Souls” by Michael Newton.  On page 171 of the book, Dr. Newton described how a soul’s advancement can be determined by what color the soul shows in its aura on the other side.  New souls start out as pure white and then as they gain wisdom through living lives they turn different colors.  Dr. Newton came up with the below rough chart that he derived from his studies:

 

STEP SOUL COLOR ROLE LEVEL
First White Beginner 1
2nd Off White 1
3rd White and reddish pink 2
4th Light Orange yellow 2
5th Yellow 3
6th Deep Gold Student Guide 4
7th Green or brown green Guide 4
8th Light Blue Master Guide 5
9th Deep Blue Master Guide 6
10th Deep Blue   with tints of purple. Master 6
11th Purple Ascended Master Higher Level

 

Using this chart, I could quickly give someone an interesting reading that would tell you if you truly are an “old soul”.  To keep things in perspective, you have probably experienced about 4,000 years of human life by the time you have reached the Stage 5 Yellow phase.

In my book, I asked Spirit to tell me how advanced certain current and historical political figures were.  The following were some of the information that Spirit shared with me:

SOUL COLOR ROLE LEVEL
White Beginner 1
Off White 1 Bill   Clinton, Michael Moore, Adolf Hitler,
White and reddish pink 2 Stalin, Barack Obama
Light Orange yellow 2 George W   Bush, JFK, Nancy Pelosi, Richard Nixon and Newt Gingrich
Yellow 3 George Bush Sr., Jimmy Carter
Deep Gold Student Guide 4 George   Washington, Abe Lincoln, Ronald Regan, FDR and Mitt Romney

 

This section of my book was in the appendix; however, it did generate some controversy.  One reader, Debbra F. H. wrote in her review of my book on Amazon, “I found his story interesting but at the end of the book, I felt that his political views were very apparent and it made me question the validity of some of his experiences. In particular I found his spiritual rating scale on some historical and present political figures laughable. A rather egocentric slant for such a spiritually evolved individual as he proposes he is.”

First of all, I am grateful to anyone who purchases my book and then takes the time to write a review. And for full disclosure, my political beliefs are conservative. However, Debbra assumes is that I had some input into what “soul color” was assigned to the above politicians.  That is not the case, these “evaluations” were told to me by Spirit, I simply named the person and I received a response.  Second, Debbra is also making the assumption that being a young soul is a bad or derogatory thing.  That is not true because all souls are young at some point. Also, not all the young souls in my “reading” were on the liberal side.  For example, Hitler, Richard Nixon, George W Bush and Newt Gingrich are also listed as younger souls.  The most common characteristic of a younger soul is that they tend to be self-centered and have difficulties working with people with different views.  I think you would agree that most of the “young soul” politicians I identify above have shown those tendencies. And, as I have always maintained, the way to advance in soul development is to show consideration for other people’s views and values despite your own personal beliefs.  In my book, I revealed two lives where I certainly did not meet that test, but once again, I was a younger soul then!

Finally, I make no pretensions of being a spiritually evolved individual like Debbra asserts. I know that I have a long way to go. The only thing really spiritual about my current life is that I have the gift of being able to communicate with the spiritual worldBut my gift does not make me “spiritually evolved”, it only helps me get me to that goal somewhere in the far future.

Reunion with my deceased father

Talked to him through a clairvoyant

My Dad

This blog post is for the folks who are coming over from Twitter in search of ways to overcome their sense of loss of a loved one. I myself was devastated by the loss of my dad six years ago. What made things infinitely better for me was being able to talk to him again. You may be scoffing right now, but it is true. After his death, I acquired some psychic abilities and fell into a group of Columbus Ohio psychics that allowed me to accomplish some amazing things in this area. To hopefully give you some comfort, I have reprinted Chapter 6 of my book that describes the first time I was reunited with him. So I encourage you to read it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. After you are done, I will direct you to some other blogs on this website where I reconnected with my recently deceased mother-in-law, Mary. I assure you, this is not fiction, and everything here is true. Best of all, the message from the “other side is all good”, there is nothing to worry about:

 

Every parting gives a foretaste of death, every reunion a hint of the resurrection. Arthur Schopenhauer

I should have marked down the date; I never knew that I would be writing a book. Anyway, it was sometime in the late September of 2009 that I went to the Psychic Medium, Brenda Posani’s house on cloudy afternoon to try to make contact with my dad. After letting me into the house, Brenda guided me to her living room where she sat on her couch and I stepped in a comfortable chair opposite of her. I remember that she did not turn on any lights and so it was a little bit dark. I was to learn in the future the normal process that Brenda goes through when she makes contact with the spirits of the departed. That process is to get some psychic insight into the person that she is doing the reading for. It’s a fascinating routine where she draws out past events and personality traits of her client. She did state some interesting and accurate things about me personally, but I did not write them down or remember them because of what happened next. Brenda was sort of slouching back in her couch, when she said, “Oh my, what an entrance! Your dad just came in the room projecting a very big, strong appearance. He is now sitting here with his legs crossed like this.” Brenda then crossed her legs in that unusual manner that my dad did. He keeps saying to you “good job, good job.”   That phrase was one of the last things he told me when I spend time with him when he was on his deathbed in Jacksonville. Brenda then said that my dad kept repeating that he was sorry, so sorry. Tears welled in my eyes as I knew that he was referring to a big battle between my mother and I and how he many times he took my mother’s side. Out loud, I told him that he had nothing to be sorry for now and that it was all right. Through Brenda my dad then revealed, “I want you to know that in life I put on a very confident face, in truth though, I was unconfident and many times unsure of myself. I regret that I put too much emphasis on material things. These things really are unimportant. I should have been putting more emphasis on relationships. Relationships cannot be bought.”   My dad then said something that will be addressed in a future chapter. He said “I now know that you had difficult times in your teen years.”   To change the mood and to get on to happier subjects, I then asked Brenda to ask my dad if he was responsible for my son Bryan’s recent outbreak of chauvinism.   Brenda was smiling as she was silently listening to the response. She told me that my dad laughed and said “Why are you blaming me for this? This is all your fault!”   By this time, I was absolutely astounded by this experience and I wanted to write down what my father was saying. I scrambled to Brenda’s kitchen to grab a pen and went back to my chair in the living room. Luckily, I had some paper in my back pocket from an Internet article that I wanted to share with Brenda. I started to scribble furiously on the back of the paper. This is how I was able to capture the details that I am now sharing with you.   I then wanted to clear up a mystery that happened after he died. “Hey dad, was that you in the van when I saw your face on Bryan?”   “Yes that was me; I wanted you to know that I was around.”   Oh my god I thought, I wasn’t imagining things, that incident was real.   “God, you scared the crap out of me!” I said. It appears that the scene was then played to Brenda psychically. This vision caused her to chime in, “that incident happened in your garage, right?” I responded yes to her.     I then asked my dad if he was doing any flying over there. He responded, “Everyone flies over here.”   I asked, “What do you do on the other side?”   “I spend a lot of time with you and your brother and sister. I am with you in your office, I watch you work on your computer all day.” (This is true, I do have a home office and I do spend almost all my time on the computer.)   Now knowing that my dad spends time with me in my house just like Concetta Bertoldi describes in her book Do Dead People Watch Us Shower?, I wanted to ask him about the things that were going on in my household. During the summer of 2009, Karol and I undertook a major kitchen remodeling; I asked my dad what he thought about the outcome.   He responded, “Too much work, it was unnecessary.”   In the August of 2009, my family prevailed against me and we purchased a Papillion puppy. My main complaint was that when the kids are in school, I would be alone with the dog when I was trying to work in my office. I asked my dad what he thought about the dog. Brenda received an image from my father and laughed. Brenda said that my dad was pointing his finger to his head like a gun and was pulling the trigger.   “Your dad says that the dog is too noisy and irritating. (This was true.) He also says that the dog can see him and that he riles up the dog sometimes just to get him going.” (All of these mannerisms are consistent with my dad during his lifetime.)   I then asked my dad what he thought about his grandchildren. He responded that Bryan was kind of intense and that Jani is a princess. He said that Jani feels his presence and that she is very spiritual. He then switched subjects and told me that he was worried about my brother Dave’s smoking habits. (This was something he was always worried about in his life.) I then asked him if he spends any time at his house in Florida. His response surprised me. Brenda started to pound the armrest of her sofa with the flat of her hand and responded for my dad, “Never, never, never. I don’t go where I’m not wanted.” I reassured him that he was very much welcome in my house. My dad then showed a symbol to Brenda of a large tree with all its limbs cut off. Brenda said that this image represented my family and how it was now split since my dad died. (This was certainly true, my wife Karol always prophesied that when my dad died, my family would lose its cohesion and fall apart. She was right.) My dad then made an unusual comment about my mother. He said that she doesn’t spend much time thinking about the future or present, but spends most of her time thinking about the past.   I then asked my dad if I could communicate with him during my meditation periods. He told me that he was there except that he couldn’t get close to me because two spirits that he did not know were dominating access to me. He told me to keep the others at bay when meditating and choose him. Brenda then told me that she sensed a spirit named Rollo was hovering close to me during my meditations.   My father then told me he was talking to his “Council of Elders” to see if they could arrange a future lifetime where he and I would be twin brothers born in a town somewhere on the seacoast. My dad just loved living by the sea and I was touched that he would want to spend another lifetime with me. Somehow I don’t think the powers in charge would arrange that, it would be too nice of a life.   To clear up another mystery, I asked him if he stopped taking his Essiac tea to keep his cancer at bay. He laughed and said that he did know about that but he would take the vitamins that I take in the morning that come in a green bottle with the flowers on the label. Well it just so happens that I do take a supplement in the morning that’s in a green plastic bottle with pink flowers on it. I was to learn in the future that spirits just love to make validating statements in psychic readings that certify that what they are communicating is true. My vitamin supplement bottle was this reading’s validating statement. In the future, I would see validation over and over again in readings.   I’m not quite sure how the reading wound down and ended. It had to have lasted at least an hour. After it ended, I was just blown away. It was one of the most important experiences of my life.

What did I get out of the experience besides being reunited with my father? I learned that your personality goes forward and exists after you die. In the case of my father, he sure did not change much other than he was much more “spiritual” and understanding. The concept of the “Council of Elders” was confirmed. (The Council of Elders is your personal oversight board of senior spirits who oversee your spiritual development.) Finally, I learned that spirits live with us and we are completely unaware of this fact. What next? I wanted to further explore my past lives in more detail. Having discovered Brenda’s powers, she was going to be my tour guide.

If you found the above interesting, you would really like Chapter 20 of my book which is called Father’s Day. This chapter described the special Father’s Day of 2012 when I brought all of my dad’s grandkids to a group reading where he dispensed advice to each grandchild. As a special surprise, my long lost grandparents and deceased cousin Ted also showed up at this very different family reunion. What I am trying to communicate is that the spirits of your lost loved ones are with you a lot. Not all the time, but more than you would imagine. For me, I find a lot of comfort in that, I hope you can too.   I encourage you to also check out these blogs as they tell the story of how our family stayed in touch with my wife’s beloved mother just after her death. You can find them here, here and here. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Spirit Guides help me find my IPhone

Adjustment bureau psychically looking for the psychic light

 

Today’s post is not about reincarnation, but we head back into the psychic light to see what people with psychic ability do with their psychic power. (I know, that’s a lot the word “psychic” being used there, but I have to do that to pay the bills. Now, on with the show!)

At the end of my book, I have an appendix where tell a number of short funny psychic stories that I got involved in. One of those stories involved using my clairsentient ability (feeling) to find lost things. To refresh your memory, I would ask to find a given lost object (keys, wallets, etc). My specific procedure would be to connect to the psychic source and ask if the lost object was in a given room or I would point my finger and ask if the object was in that direction. Either method would result in a yes or no headshake which after a number of repeated questions would lead me to the lost item’s location. My wife Karol would ask, “Who is giving you this information?” My answer would be the Source, aka the Universal Consciousness, aka God him or herself. That answer alone started to make me feel squeamish. After all, God is not my valet. I am greatly appreciative of the divine help, but having God as a helper in trivial things makes me feel uncomfortable. To get around this political issue, I realized that all souls have a right to universal information. That is every event, no matter how large or small is recorded, even where I put my stupid keys yesterday evening. So instead of tapping into the Source and asking where my keys are, I simply request access to the universal information data base and psychically ask for the location. It works just as well and it shifts the work to me rather than God. Recently, I noticed a change in how this search mechanism works. Originally, the other side just made the process easy for me by telling me which room the object was in. It was very similar to when I first got my psychic abilities and the spirits would spell out complete words to any reasonable question that I asked. As time when on, that game changed to just giving me the first letter of a word and how many letters the word contained. (The game was changed to psychic Wheel of Fortune.) In the search for lost items game, I noticed that instead of telling me where an object was, the other side would indirectly lead me to it. I will give you a few examples that happened over Christmas week. Karol drives herself ragged during Christmas week, it is busy at her store and she has her Christmas preparations. When you run around at 1,000 MPH things get misplaced. The first object was her Iphone, which she could not find despite tearing the house apart. A crabby, frustrated wife is not in my best interests, so I stepped in with my amazing search talent. Our house has two staircases on either side of the house that goes down into the lower level. Starting at the kitchen, I started pointing my finger and received a lot of no headshakes at rooms where the Iphone wasn’t. Walking at a quick pace, I blew past the non relevant rooms and was coming almost to the end of the circuit when I saw her missing Iphone on a library shelf in the lower level hallway. Karol was absolutely amazed and gratified that I found the phone within 2 minutes. My talents were again tested when she misplaced the gift cards that she bought our kids as stocking stuffers. She was again at a frustrated boiling point when I stepped in. Psychic directions brought me to our bedroom, but there was Christmas debris everywhere, so finding small cards was not easy. I was directed to my nightstand where I went to look. Standing over the nightstand, I was then told that the cards were not there. Instead of being frustrated, I just went along with the game, having a benign confidence that I would be eventually shown where they were. I then made an immediate about face from the night stand and noticed the 4 level wooden shelf immediately across from the room. Is it there I asked? Yes came the headshake. I walked over to that shelf and there the cards were on the lowest shelf. Karol’s face once again showed utter amazement. “You are amazing!” she said. I responded, “Just be grateful that the spirits like you.” Just yesterday, I lost my Iphone. I had to go someplace so I was getting frustrated by not being able to find it through conventional means. I tore apart our kitchen, bedroom and my office without success. I should have known better, I already got the psychic tip that it was not at those locations. I just did not believe that because logically it had to be in one of those three rooms. I surrendered completely to the psychic search method, where I was lead to the leather couch in the downstairs great room. Once I sat down on the couch, I looked behind me and saw my Iphone sitting on the sofa table behind the couch. I had put it there last night when I was playing one of my sons in table tennis. In my book, I make reference to the spirits of the Adjustment Bureau (like in the Matt Damon movie). I can just picture them moving me around my house like a puppet on a string during the searches to find my lost items!
