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!

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.

Contacting my deceased Mother-in-law

Finally!

clairvoyant with psychic ability

For those of you who have taken psychic development classes with me or have read my book, one constant about me is my whining about my psychic powers being restricted. I always looked enviously at my fellow psychics who can see or hear the other side without effort. My gift was to have my head shake in a yes or no fashion when I would ask a psychic question. I am Frank the human Ouija board! I admit that having this ability is pretty cool compared to someone who has no gifts. But my psychic ability compared to a high powered psychic is like comparing riding a horse to driving a Maserati. Psychic medium Brenda Posani would always tell me that the better gifts were coming, but they had yet to show up despite hours and hours of meditation over 3 years. Brenda once tapped into my meditation experience and commented, “Wow, I feel like singing that song, “One is the loneliest number you can ever do”. No one talks to you!” During meditation, all I would see is swirling colors like a TV channel that was off the air. Recently I found an E-book called the “Art of Seeing” by Nathaniel which is a practical guide to improving your clairvoyance. I followed the recommendations of the book such as cleaning my chakras, doing affirmations and doing practice exercises. I started to notice little baby steps of improvement. During a meditation one morning a few days ago, an image of a packed travel bag sitting on the floor appeared to me. “Is that a message?” I asked the Source. YES my head nodded. “Is this related to clairvoyance?” YES “Am I moving on in my abilities?” YES Well that was exciting news! Finally this morning I had a breakthrough! I went deep into meditation and connected with my mother-in-law to see how she was doing. I asked her to flash a picture of herself to me. I was shortly rewarded with a grainy picture of her when she was in her 70’s, wearing a lot of makeup and also wearing her favorite blue patterned house work blouse. I described the picture and asked if she had sent that one to me. The return answer was yes!! HOT DOG, I am making progress! Mom then moved on and I went deeper into meditation. A video like image appeared of WW2 warships traveling together in very rough seas. The ships were really getting tossed around. “Is this a message?” I asked the Source. YES went my head nodded. I then was able to decipher it and got confirmation that I was corrwhich I will reveal in a future blog. The news was not good. As a hint, it supports the channeled message that the local psychic Kc Matronia recently made.
