I love the Matrix movies where one of my favorite characters is the Oracle. She has a lot of great lines; one of my favorites is when Neo knocks over a vase just after she told him to watch out for it. The background of the scene is that the Oracle is a psychic who can see the future. She knows beforehand that Neo will knock over that very same vase. She tries to prevent the event by shouting a warning, but the warning only serves to startle Neo into knocking over the vase. Her line to Neo was something like “What might really fry your noodle is the idea that you may have knocked over that vase only because of my warning.” Neo looks confused not getting her idea and the Oracle moves on to other business. What the Oracle was trying to communicate that determining the real cause of an event can sometimes be hard to determine. As I describe in my book, I had my noodle fried by psychic medium (Staci Wells) a few months ago. All my life I was mystified why my teens and 20s absolutely sucked. I know everyone has difficulties during that time in their lives, but my experiences were way above average in frustration. I did not go to Staci to discuss this particular topic, but she came right out on her own and told me that my life plan was set to have the first thirty to thirty-three years be an “extensive, extended experience of frustration where I would not get affirmation from others.” It turned out that my soul planned that miserable, frustrating time period to test my self esteem. Staci’s revelation really shows you who is in charge of your life and that entity would be your soul. My higher self thought that that little 20 year exercise would be a great idea while “little ol me” as Frank had to suffer through it. Of course, my higher self had a big Karmic debt to pay off from the activities of one of my prior incarnations, so I (Frank) had to pitch in and contribute to the karmic payoff with this miserable 20 year experience. I have to look at the bright side, at least I was not violently killed like my other prior incarnations. And my struggles will get me to where I am supposed to be.

Today we will discuss an individual who really has great access to the psychic source and is bathed in the psychic light. Is the psychic medium Theresa Caputo for real? My one word answer: ABSOLUTELY! The TLC channel has a Sunday night reality show called Long Island Medium where Long Island psychic Theresa Caputo is captured in her daily life giving psychic readings. When I first saw the show, I knew that Theresa was the real deal because she is so similar to my psychic trainer (Brenda Posani) in technique and abilities. What really grabs the viewer and what really makes the show authentic are the validations that the spirit world gives in her readings. Examples would be: I know that that locket is your grandmother’s and she’s thanking you for wearing it. OR I know you keep your grandfather’s pocket watch in your nightstand drawer. The looks on Theresa’s client’s faces are priceless when she passes on those validations because no one else knows these intimate facts. (Just a note, if you do not get some kind of validation in a psychic reading, it’s not legitimate.) Receiving validations can be addicting and that’s why I like to visit Brenda every three months to experience new ones. I use these spirit validations throughout my book to add credibility to the past lives stories that the spirit world gave me. Examples would be:
- My deceased father identifying the green vitamin bottle with pink flowers that is in my closet.
- My wife’s deceased uncle complaining about her taking down the drapes that he liked in our great room.
- When I found the name “Puttlinz” on the old regimental roster that linked the roster page to my real prior life name of Des Fours. The name Puttlinz was given to me in a psychic reading two months prior.
- Finding out that Konrad Von Hochstaden really died by stabbing three months after Laurie gave me a reading that I was once stabbed to death as a Catholic Bishop.
I am sure that Theresa would agree that validations from the spirits are the number one thing that gives the psychic community the occasionally grudging legitimacy that we receive.

I was very pleased that my publisher awarded my first book with the “Editor’s
Choice” designation. Some people might brag about such a thing, but I know
better than to do that. Reason being is that I really did not create the
book’s plot line and most of the story elements. How can I really take credit
for things that were not my ideas? At best I was a collaborator and organizer
for the true creators. Who were the true creators? “They” would be the spirits
on the “other side” who gave me most of my material! In my book, I describe the
summer when I joined Brenda Posani’s psychic development class. At the conclusion
of our weekly class, Brenda would give each of the attendees a short psychic
reading. One of my readings from Brenda was very memorable when she told me
that they (the spirits) would “spoon feed” me information. “What the heck does
that mean?” I thought to myself. As it turned out, that’s what exactly
happened. I am kind of an impatient person (it’s in my soul). I was on a
mission to find my prior lives and their purpose. However, the information
leaked out at a very measured pace and in a specific order over the next two
years. I found it all very frustrating until I finished the book. It was at
that time that I saw that the order of the psychic information created a perfect
story arc! They made it so easy for me; it was like copying work from a
classmate that sat next to you. I am creating a sequel to the “Reincarnation
Highway” that will tell the same story from the spirits point of view. Much of
the story is about observing my spirit guides Morton and Gulliver pull the
strings in my life to make things difficult for me as “Frank”. Since I am
creating the dialogue, the second book must be considered as fiction. Although,
it should be well within the ballpark of what actually happened. If I earn
“Editor’s Choice” for that book, I will comfortably take credit for it.

At the end of the Reincarnation Highway book, I wrote that I was going to go on
a different spiritual highway and try to do out of body explorations (OBEs).
Reason being is that the experience is mind blowing; a lot of fun and it offers
spiritual growth in another form. I am sorry to report that the results so far
have been disappointing. Despite reading 3 books by experts and doing my
exercises, the best I can do is to get into a precursor state, but I still have
not obtained “lift off’ yet. I believe that the reason for my lack of success
is that the spirit world wants me to keep concentrating on my life lessons and
not get distracted by the benefits of life in heaven until my work is done. All
right, I get it, but I will still keep working at it. Maybe I will get lucky.
Last night at 3:07AM (it’s always that time, same time as my spirit assisted
OBE), I received a consolation prize for my efforts. I was awarded with a lucid
dream. For the uninitiated, a lucid dream is where you have complete control of
what you do and who you see in a dream. And it is extremely vivid. To take
over conscious control of a dream, you must first realize that you are
dreaming. It is at that point you can take control. I have tried to achieve
lucid dreaming before without success. I could never get past that barrier where
I would realize that I was in a dream. Last night was different. I was
experiencing a very long dream where I was attending a big party in a many
roomed modern mansion with long halls. Near the end of that dream, I was
walking down a wide yellow hallway when all of a sudden, I said, “Wait a minute,
I am in a dream! And if I am in a dream, I can do this! I then jumped into the
air and started to fly like superman down the hallway. I rose too quickly and
flew into the ceiling above. I was actually flying through solid matter like a
spirit. I swooped back down below the ceiling and then into a room with a group
of women. At that point I participated in some fun activities that I am not
going to write about. I woke up with a huge grin on my face and looked at the
clock, it read 3:07. I was so happy; I blew kisses at the ceiling in the
direction of the spirits above. Thank you Morton (my spirit guide) for the
experience! I can’t wait for my next lucid dream experience. The question is,
will I now be able to do this on a regular basis or was this a fluke? We will
find out together. I promise that I will blog about it the next time it
happens. (Hopefully tonight and every night! A guy can wish, can’t he?)

In my first book, I wrote about a reading I had with the very talented, national psychic medium Staci Wells. Staci specializes in determining what lessons you are working on learning during your current life. She gave me the below surprising insight: “You needed to learn that what others thought of you should not concern you. This all goes back to your prior lives. In your past lives, you had a very strong reactive streak to what others would say about you. You would always adopt the dictates of the church or the royal court to fight for. You would respond strongly whenever someone plucked your heartstrings by physically attacking them. You firmly believed that right had the might and that might will always win out. Your belief system often backfired and then you would lose your life.” She was obviously referring to my bad boy lives as Konrad and Nicholas. Brenda Posani further elaborated on this issue when I was working with her to uncover who Nicholas’ seven innocent victims were. (I am doing this research for the sequel to the Reincarnation highway book.) We determined that in the year 1630, Nicholas and his Calvary regiment were wintering in Nuremburg Germany during the 30 years war. Nicholas took a fancy to a pretty married women he saw walking down the street and he followed her home. He then was confronted by her husband when he barged into their home. Nicholas killed the husband in the encounter. The murdered man had a brother-in-law who was a newspaper publisher in the Nuremburg. The newspaper publisher righteously complained about Nicholas’ outrageous behavior in his newspaper. Nicholas obviously did not like the press he was receiving because he then sent his goons over to the publisher’s house and had the publisher killed. Brenda’s reading directly supported Staci’s reading. In conclusion, my soul does not like to be personally criticized and has killed other people in the past because of this issue. This leads me to a few events that occurred this month. While browsing the web for current pictures of statues and mosaics of Konrad von Hochstaden, I encountered a German website of medieval re-enactors and their on-line forum. In the forum, they were making fun of the obscene Konrad statue that is on the cathedral. I good naturedly got on the website and told them in German to quit mocking my statue as I was his reincarnation. I then told them about the book I was writing. Oh man, the insults spewed out of the web pages! Burn him! Cut off head etc. I thought they were play acting, so I got in the role of Konrad and called them “Brutes” and told them that they would be kneeling and kissing my ring if we were back in those times. I was just having fun and I thought they would have fun too. I then told them that there was more to their hobby because most of them were doing this to relive the times when they really were fighting men in medieval Germany. I thought that was pretty cool since I was giving their hobby high significance. That caused the insults to really fly; I was full of myself, I’m insane, I ‘m drunkard, why am I bothering them? Etc. They then unanimously banned me from the website and destroyed my posts. Yikes! Two weeks later a found the perfect website forum, a European website forum of reincarnated German soldiers. The members are individuals who had actual memories of serving in WW2 Germany. They spend a great deal of time validating their memories in the official archives. I had finally found my brothers-in -arms! Or so I thought! I registered with the website and told them my World War 2 stories. I didn’t read the fine print where they do not allow psychic derived information on their site. They liked my stories until they realized that my recollections were from psychic origins. I explained that my stories did match with the historical record except for the name Otto Kostermann. I was looking for help to validate that name, but I did not get it because the abuse just spewed out from my new friends! “I was a fraud, I was a charlatan, I just wanted to sell my book, I was full of s—t. How dare I call them comrades and brothers.” I stayed on the high road. I told them that I was just offering an explanation or theory why we had these WW2 memories. I was not preaching or pushing anything. My attitude is consider what I write and make your own judgments. It’s quite OK to disagree with me, just be civil. When I suggested that having past life memories was a “psychic ability”, the website erupted in protest and I was once again permanently barred from another website. Holy smokes, why the abuse and why did they feel so threatened? Why were they so excessively vehement in their comments? Why did everybody pile on? The reaction just seemed so excessive. Then I realized, the other side just set up a spiritual test for me. What better way to get me riled up then to have a large public attack my character and my book? The end result was that I think I finally passed the test Staci described. I did not take things personal and I tried to find an accommodation. When that was not accomplished, I did not get snarky or return insults, I just moved on. As Staci Wells revealed in the book, “You need to be less violent. In your life as Frank, you needed to resolve differences peacefully instead of swinging a sword or getting a gun. You needed to learn to be wiser and not to use aggression. A more natural way will come to you of being gentle and cooperative.” I must be making progress.
