Communication from the spirit world has repeated many times that there is a continuity to life and heaven does in fact exist. Perhaps our idea of what heaven might be varies with our religious beliefs and portrayals from the media. I personally believe that heaven is a different dimension of reality and that this is a place that all souls return to once our time on earth is done. We simply make the transition back to this spiritual dimension, this is a world of thought and consciousness. No longer having physical bodies, these souls in the afterlife now rely on thought and telepathically connecting with the living across the veil. This could take departed loved ones some time to understand and acclimate to, now their form of transportation is thought. They can be anywhere they choose to be and connect with their loved ones on the other side of the veil just by their thoughts. In all of my work I always say that when you think and remember your loved one, it’s like a phone call to the other side.
I feel that the other side has many different realms or if you will vibrating dimensions and at the time of your physical death you will transition and blend with the energy that you are suited for. This is low to the highest vibration you can imagine and at the top I feel would be where the ascended masters are. Through the dimensions there are teachers, guides, angles that assist souls continue to learn and grow spiritually. When we are incarnated on the earth plane we go to school and gain knowledge that helps and assists us throughout our mortal life, the same can be said for when we make the transition back to spirit. We do not stop growing and developing, we return back to the source. We learn more from our encounters with the people we met and had experiences with through our lifetime.
The good and the bad, the sad and the happy, these moments helped shape us and also was our class room. This knowledge of the happiness we caused others and unfortunately the times we hurt people, we can stand back and get a greater understanding of what we got right and what we did wrong. Just think that every person that you encountered in your lifetime has taught you a lesson. The expression “everything happens for a reason”, I feel is wrong. It really should be “everything happens for experience”. We are not human beings having a spiritual experience but rather spiritual beings having a human experience.
World renowned medium Tony Stockwell said he feels that spirits still have the ability to visit our world and do the things they still want to do. The things they do, or want us to know they do, are representative of the things they loved to do when they were here. Another aspect of communication with the spirit world is through our dreams and in the dream state a connection can be made. Stockwell said, spirit can communicate directly to us when we're in a more unconscious state (such as a dream state), when we're going to sleep, or when we're waking up. We can absolutely encounter spirit people around us because the unconscious mind is more gentle and less analytical. These experiences can be profound and healing to anyone that has experienced them.
Edgar Cayce has a list about how to connect to the divine that I wanted to share with you the reader, I have also added to the list on how to connect and open up that line of sacred communication. Try to find a quiet place and sit in silence for a few moments and take a few deep breaths. Create a comforting mantra, one I like to use is “I am soul, I am happy, I am well and at peace”. When you feel ready, welcome the spirit to communicate and come from a place of love and respect. This is for the highest good and intention always. The following is a list of ways to connect with spirit and the divine.
Etheric Body and Our Aura
The etheric body is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body and to sustain it and connect it with "higher" bodies. Arthur Findley in his book On the Edge of the Etheric: Survival After Death Scientifically Explained that was published in 1931 is one of the most relevant books on mediumship, communication and our souls existence after death in my opinion. In the book Arthur Findly refers to the dead as living in a duplicate etheric body and he explains that the etheric world is part of this world. It’s all about us, it’s a material that's too fine for our normal senses to appreciate. He goes on to say that we are already an etheric being, we don’t become one. We simply shed our human body, like an overcoat. We are etheric beings clothed in physical bodies and death only means a separation of this etheric body from the physical covering.
The etheric body is the real and enduring body and the exact duplicate of its counterpart.
Etheric energy is cosmic energy, it is the prana, it is the chi. There are three components of our etheric self: the naty’s, chakras and aura. Just think there are 72,000 minor nadis in your body that are busy delivering small energy streams to the chakras and aura of your physical body. This energy stream is always flowing and aiding our physical bodies. Then your chakras act as energy centers for these streams to pool in and enhance our physical self. Now let’s elaborate on the etheric body and how I believe the etheric energy that we all possess helps those intune with their energy connect to spirit.
The Etheric energy system delivers energy to your physical body so that it can do everything that it does to enable you to generate your life experiences. This force field that encompasses our physical body, can help aid in the connection with spirit frequency and bridge the gap where two worlds meet. Since we are already an etheric being and don’t become one, we all have the ability to develop and familiarize ourselves to how energy works and flows. It’s like the idea of how mediums need to raise their vibration and spirit lowers there to form a connection. Our physical bodies are surrounded by different layers of energy.
These auras have been depicted throughout many different religions and could be seen as a glowing halo around the religious figure. These ascended masters were enveloped by divine energy and also conveyed many stories of healing and transformation when in their presence.
These layers of our aura make us who we are and always keep us connected to divine energy and the spirit realm. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said it best, “ we are not human beings having a spiritual experience but are spiritual beings having a human experience. Just think there are particles in our bodies that have been in existence for billions of years, these particles will persist for billions of years after we move on from our current physical bodies. These particles within us were forged in the nuclear fusion fires of stars. We are all made of stardust. Planetary scientist and stardust expert Dr Ashley King explained that It is totally 100% true nearly all the elements in the human body were made in a star and many have come through several supernovas. That fact alone connects us to something so much bigger and infinite.
You are a divine soul, just the fact that your reading this book is a sign that you are a seeker of knowledge far beyond what was taught in the education system. We all are connected and forever will be, even in the death of our physical bodies. This divine energy that makes us who we are and carries our consciousness and knowledge we learned in our time spent in earth's room, will go on. There is no death. Our soul consciousness just returns back to the source and there we can review the experiences and soul lessons we experienced. We are eternal stardust. We all will shine on, the death process is just an ending to a step along the soul's journey.
When talking with many energy healers, especially those being attuned for reiki practice, they have told me how much their connection to spirit has improved when receiving a reiki attunement. It’s a very powerful experience and your energetic pathways are opened by your reiki master and allows energy to flow freely through your body. This impacts your life tremendously and also allows you to aid in the health of others. Students reviving an attunement often report feeling a lightening of their body and tingling from their head to their toes as their energy pathways are opened. Also reiki practitioners have told me that their attunement has helped them become a receiver for spirit and some also offer mediumship as part of their reiki practice. When Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars said “It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.” He couldn't have been more correct on how energy works in our human and spirit connection. You don’t have to become a reiki practitioner or a devout yogi to work on your connection to spirit and divine energy.
There are simple small things you can do each day to live a more soulful life and vibrate at the highest frequency. Make a commit to yourself to just sit still and quiet your mind and just be. I also personally enjoy being in nature and connecting to the natural world, listening to the subtle sounds of birds and the wind blowing through the trees. It’s incredibly grounding and renewing to immerse yourself in nature. I would also suggest downloading a 15 to 20 minute chakra meditation that you can use and implement into your daily routine. All these small things will help you shift your life to living more from the soul and connect you to the divine.
Let’s go over a few daily changes you could make to live a more soul centered life and connect to your divine energy. While doing these exercises not only will you be getting to know your true self but also connecting with your ancestors that have gone before you. The ebb and flow of the universe is like the expansive ocean, there is no end, only many different layers of divine love and light.
Get out in Nature
Listen to your gut
Appreciate what you have
Be the best you, you can be today
Know that you are pure divine spirit
Talk to your ancestors and except signs
The sold out event took place on August 26th at the beautiful Strauss Mansion. It was an absolute honor to bring many of the best investigators and intuitive individuals to this historic and spirit filled location. This was a fundraiser for the Atlantic Highlands Historical Society and all proceeds went to Strauss Mansion. It means so much to us to have the opportunity to give back and help these amazing locations, especially through paranormal programs.

In many ways, fall represents the theme of change. It serves as the seasonal reminder of how important it is to let go of the things that no longer serve you. The leaf falls from the tree to the ground, it becomes nourishment for future generations. With the letting go, there is a knowing of a return and one day the bare trees will be full again. Fall can also be about changing our lives. Research has found that people tend to look to make healthy changes during this time, increasing their interest in diet and exercise. While you might hold on to situations, belongings, or relationships for too long, there may be times when you seek change without regard for what’s working well. As you take inventory, pay attention to what you honor and hold on to.
Celebrate what’s here to stay, such as your supportive family, your close friends, and even yourself. Reflect on who has been there for you this past year, and consider ways to show appreciation. Be sure to include yourself, and celebrate the small successes you’ve made. Letting go is part of the cycle that makes way for something new. Yet, it can be difficult to know exactly what to get rid of. As we begin our personal harvest we need to decide what we want to keep and what we need to let go. Use your intuition and ask your higher self how this person or situation serves me. Choose to surround yourself with people that vibrate high and uplift one another. Make this changing season a time to manifest the positive changes you want in your life!
