What is the Difference Between a Ghost and a Spirit? Boston’s Top Psychic Medium Explains

Who does Boston’s top psychic medium communicate with?

With Halloween around the corner, and haunted houses popping up, it’s a perfect time for us to clarify this fairly common question. When people are new to the conversation about how psychics work, it’s an understandable one, and even more so this time of year. Many of us have grown up with childhood fears about ghosts and goblins, and of course movies have done a lot to scare us out of our wits too. 

Some have asked me how I can rely upon the information I receive, and might the communication be coming from unreliable sources. Or worse, sources that wish to do us harm. For many, simply the idea of communicating with beings that are not in bodies, that most people do not see, is a stretch, and anything that’s at the edge of, or beyond, our comfort zone, automatically triggers a fear response in us.

Boston Ghosts & How Mediums Connect

Before I get into the subject of ghosts, I want to point out that we have no proof that ghosts even exist. I frequently communicate with spirits and have often wondered if ghosts and spirits are the same thing. First, we’ll talk about ghosts.

Ghosts are portrayed to us in many ways, and other than Casper, the majority of ghosts are cast as harmful. Actually, it’s not that ghosts are necessarily harmful however they are usually thought to be in some distress at the time of their passing.

What we call ghosts are typically thought to be the spirit or soul of someone who’s died and for one reason or another has not moved on to the next appropriate realm. We’ll leave aside the question of what realms we go to after death here; some say there are different energetic or astral planes that relate to what is often referred to as Heaven or Hell.

 For our purposes, what is important to note is the common belief that the reason Ghosts have not ‘moved on’ is that they have ‘unfinished business’ or resentment of some sort left from their experience in the physical body. And furthermore being stuck between two worlds often stems from the ghost having suffered, been mistreated or died as a victim of traumatic violence.

At the heart of the initiation of the United State’s revolution, Boston is certainly a place where many have died violent deaths . What’s important to know is that according to ghost mythology whatever the cause of them becoming ghosts, from whatever time period, they are seldom dangerous or malevolent. Instead, it’s alleged that they are lost and need assistance to trust that it’s okay and safe for them evolve to the next stage of their (after) life.

 Psychic Mediums Connect with Spirits

According to ghost legends; the biggest and most important difference between spirits and ghosts is that while spirits are also beings without bodies, they are not ‘stuck’ as ghosts are. Spirits can come to the earth plane, and though invisible are always around us.

After completing an exhaustive paranormal project, I came to believe that ghosts are not stuck. In fact, my experiences with ghosts seemed to be the same type of experience that I have with spirits as a medium. My views have changed and may evolve again should I do more study or have an experience that proves my current belief false.

There is mostly agreement among psychics that spirits can also be called angels, guides, spirit guides or ascended masters; they might be friends or family who have ‘crossed over’ and yet come back to assist us. And that is the most important hallmark of a spirit: they are universally of assistance. We can say that they have evolved since their 3D incarnation, and while existing at various degrees of ‘enlightenment’, they are all liberated and thus have a level of wisdom that is guided by love and light, and is for our highest good.

How A Top Boston Psychic Medium Communicates with Ghosts and Spirits

While it is intriguing to believe that ghosts exist, and can be mischievous or even occasionally malicious, for me as a psychic, ghosts may be much more than their scary reputations. For any of you who come into contact with ghosts, the thing to know is that as humans, we are limited in our understanding of anything not human.

In conclusion, when I communicate with spirits, it’s immediately clear to me that I’m working with energy that can only be described as pure love. I sense the essence of the person they were in life and I’m sensitive to their unique relationship with the client in front of me. They come with unconditional love, insight and support. I fully appreciate the sacred responsibility to work with the Divine in this way and to get it right.

Natural Psychic Abilities: Animal Instinct Explained

 

Mount Agung, the volcano in Bali, is still rumbling. Locals, who live on the mountain and at the base, many of whom were not alive back in 1963 when it last erupted, knew that it was active well before they heard anything from officials. How? Snakes and Monkeys were moving down the mountain. According to scientists, snakes can sense earthquakes at a distance of 120 miles and their unusual behavior can be used to predict and detect.

Just before the major tsunami hit Asian coastlines in 2004, dogs were seen to refuse to leave home and didn’t want to go toward the coast.

At the time of that same tsunami, the Flamingos that are bred at Point Calimere wildlife sanctuary in India, left their normal low lying breeding area and flew to higher areas.

On the island of Sumatra elephants who were giving rides to tourists began trumpeting at about the time the earthquake began even though it was not ‘feelable’ to humans. The owner of the business, Dang Salangam said he’d never heard the elephants crying out like that before. The elephants rebelled against their trainers commands and ran inland and up into the hills.

More than 200,000 people were killed by the magnitude 9 earthquake off the coast of Sumatra. If you haven’t seen the movie The Impossible, it gives a powerful and surreal, if distant, experience of that tragedy. One of the notable aspects of it is that many people were completely unaware of anything being ‘off’ until the first massive wave was upon them. After the clean up, very few animals were found dead.

In 373 B.C. according to the Roman historian Aelian, many animals, including snakes, rats, centipedes and weasels came up from underground and hurried out of the city of Helike five days before an earthquake destroyed it.

Alternatively, whereas most animals move away from intensified weather patterns, tiger sharks tend to move toward electrical storms.

Some scientists theorize that the prescient behavior of animals is due to their heightened infrasonic sound pulses generated by earth shifts, and are quick to dismiss the perspective that there is something mystical at work. Elephant communication is 3/4 infrasonic.  

Intuitive awareness and your natural psychic abilities      

Others point to the animal behavior as coming from a sixth sense. We humans have big brains, and perhaps with the development there in the cranium, we’ve lost other abilities we once had.

More accurate than humans having lost that sixth sense, or intuitive ability , is that in our head-centric advancement, the more ‘animal’ parts of us, especially the beneficial ones, like empathy, have gone dormant.

However we explain the animal behavior, their awareness being different than that of us human animals is evident. Humans have made incredible advances in science and technology, and while clearly there are many benefits, could there also be detriments?

In Joni Mitchell’s classic song from 1967, Both Sides Now, she sings:

Well something’s lost and something’s gained
In living everyday

The heart and the head, the human intellect and the animal wisdom. Neither is good or bad, and both serve purposes. The question might become how do we use one or the other, or maybe both, to ultimately foster what is most important to us.

Tapping into your own natural psychic abilities

Perhaps it’s time for us to look at life from both sides too. The heart and the head, the human intellect and the animal wisdom, which may be how some of us tap into our intuitive abilities. Neither is good or bad, and both serve purposes. The question might become how do we use one or the other, or maybe both, to ultimately foster what is most important to us.

And you, in your life now, how useful might it be to regain some of your own natural psychic abilities or animal sensitivity. The brain serves many functions in life, and yet when we truly tune in, we know (in our bones and intuition) that it’s the heart that leads us to love and fulfillment.

Ram Das, the philosopher, teacher and author, who was formerly Richard Alpert, professor at Harvard, said: “I’ve met some of the smartest people in our time, and some of the wisest. The difference between them is that the wise ones are also happy.”

Recovering Emotionally from Trauma and Natural Disasters: *My 9/11 Anniversary Perspective, Boston, MA

 

We just passed the anniversary of 9/11 earlier this month. Do you remember where you were and who you were with when you heard the news about the Twin towers? I bet you do. Every person I’ve asked this question to recalls with great clarity. This is common with group (or collective) trauma.  

How about July 11, 2017? You might; that was just a couple months ago, though more than likely, unless there was something occurring in your life with emotional importance, you’d need to work to remember that date.

In Baz Luhrmann’s song Sunscreen – and if you haven’t heard the song, I encourage you to give it a listen – he says:

Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind. The kind that blindside you at 4 PM on some idle Tuesday. Despite this sage advice, worry is our tendency.

My friend Daniel was in New York that morning. He’s a yogi, and had just come out of a class with a visiting dignitary teacher at Chelsea Piers, where 23rd Street meets the West Side Highway.

“I knew something was off right away. I got to the street corner and a bunch of people were gathered there. They were eagerly talking to each other. Some were pointing up over downtown.”

People don’t tend to stop and talk on the Streets in New York. When he told me the story of his experience there that day, two things stood out.

He recounted: “I joined the group there and a man in a business suit told me that a plane had crashed into one of the towers. I was looking up when the second plane hit. It happened so fast that I couldn’t see the plane. What I did see though, and what changed my life forever, was the explosion on the other side of the building. Flames and smoke poured out.

‘Immediately I went from thinking that we’d experienced a bizarre and tragic accident (a plane crashing into a building) to the realization that this was not an accident. The next moment brought the terrifying question: ‘what else is going to happen now?'”

Most of us are unlikely to experience a terrorist attack, or even a life-threatening hurricane, earthquake or fire. And while that’s generally something positive – certainly I don’t wish those kind of experiences upon anyone – my friend Daniel, and some of the people in the midst of the world’s current natural disasters, may have an advantage over us.

I asked him how his life was forever changed.

I knew – and I mean knew deep in my bones – that there really is no certainty. We think we know what’s going to happen, and the truth is anything can happen in any moment.”

One lesson we might get from this is that given the truth that we never really know the future, we do well to prioritize what’s truly important to us.

Advice about the future,  Boston’s best psychic

I’ll let you in on a little psychic industry secret. My work is more about the present than the future. Sure, I do get impressions and visions, and they turn out to be accurate most of the time. More importantly though, I help people understand themselves and what’s happening now – and from that, they are much better at creating their own destinies.

For a few days after 9/11 New York’s atmosphere radically changed from the cold, impersonal city it’s known for to a village where people talked to each other, looked out for each other.

In the midst of disaster, a common question becomes: ‘what matters to me?’

What would you be doing or saying if you weren’t ‘sure’ about the future. Baz goes on to say: Do one thing everyday that scares you every day.

Perhaps right now is a great time to align your life with what matters to you. If you would would like to seek guidance in this realm, please get in touch or schedule an appointment today.

*I put this blog post on hold to address Hurricane Harvey. The message in the post is still as pertinent as it was on September 11th.

How Natural Disasters Affect Consciousness

You’re sitting in your living room with your family. The windows are taped to prevent them from shattering, yet with the intensity and randomness of the wind, and the sharp and excruciating sounds outside – metal smacking against metal, the snap of trees, the eerie whip of air over the roof – all the precautions you’ve made feel like little protection.

What do you feel?

A lot of you reading this are in New England, and while we get blasted with Nor’Easters, we seldom get hurricanes. Let alone earthquakes or tsunamis. Still, can you imagine? What happens inside you?

Fear – primal, powerful and potentially crippling

 One of the first, most powerful impacts of a natural disaster is the activation of our most basic, animal sense of survival. Or, more potently felt, the fear that we will not survive.

Right? Fear. Plain and simple. Right now fear is ripping through much of our world.

In and of itself there is nothing wrong with fear. In fact, fear is not only hard-wired into every human being, it’s necessary and can be beneficial. The biggest problem with fear though, is that not only does it keep us from creating, living and achieving what we most desire in our life, it’s often operating below the surface of our awareness.

Stay with me: I’m diverging for a moment from the fear that arises in the midst of an earthquake. That’s a primal fear, like if we see a spider or a snake. It’s automatic.

The other type of fear is the more crippling. Fears of failure, or success. Fear of jealousy, or greatness, or responsibility. If I created my dream company, what would I then be responsible for? What would my family think of me? If I wrote that novel that I’ve been talking about, what if no one liked it? What if a lot of people liked it – what would I need to do then to live up to it?

Are you making the connection? When we are afraid of a hurricane, it’s obvious. When it’s a fear of taking a risk in our life, not so much. In fact, it can be so hidden from awareness (suppressed or repressed) that we are sure the reason we haven’t done something, changed something, created something or stopped doing something. 

FEAR – Feeling Excited And Ready

Whether you are in the midst of, or the aftermath of, a natural disaster these days, you might take the proactive jump to asking yourself what’s really important to you.

For many people one of the effects of a natural disaster is the reassessment of what really matters to them. If we are not directly affected by the destructive forces of nature these days, we might be wise to get the lesson anyway. Right now, what matters to you? What have you been living with that is – if you are brave and honest – no longer tolerable? What have you not stepped up to that if fear were no longer holding you back, you’d boldly move towards?

How Boston’s Psychic Medium can help 

It’s in this realm that I can be of assistance to you. As a psychic, I cannot alter nature, nor is my path to be a rescuer. One of the obvious components of recent events is that none of us really know what’s going to happen. Life is too precious to squander by delaying what really matters.

What I can help you with, though, is getting in deeper contact with your own inner drives, fears and motivation. You might say that I am, as medium, a connector between you and your higher self. Sometimes we’ve been fishies in our own fishbowl so long, we don’t even realize what we are putting up with or putting off.

There’s nothing like 130 mph winds, the rumble of the earth below our feet or viewing cars swimming where there once was road to get our attention.

You matter to me. You matter to the world. And so I ask you, here and now, what matters to you?

If you would are feeling fear and would like to seek guidance in the realm, please get in touch or schedule an appointment today.

Intuitive Coaching: How Working with Boston Psychic Could be Your Bullet Train to Success

What happens for you when you hear the words ‘life coach’? Or ‘intuitive coach’?

When I first heard these terms I was confused. To me coaching was reserved for the sports realm. And when I got past that, and considered deeper into what a ‘life’ coach might be, and when I saw some of the people who were promoting themselves as life coaches, I scoffed and dismissed it.

Many of us were taught the staunch value of independence and self-reliance. Indeed they are important values, and yet as a culture, and in many of our individual lives, these values have taken such weight as to block us from creating what we want in our lives with much more ease, grace and speed.

In Japan there is a bullet train that rockets passengers at speeds of up to 320 km/ hour. The experience is so different from our usual ways of traveling on the ground that most people are shocked at first.

Picture this: you stow your bags, sit in your comfortable train seat, pull out your book or laptop or are just gazing out the window – then the train begins moving. At first it’s normal, though soon the velocity increases so fast you feel like it’s some kind of new carnival ride. You’re pinned to your seatback. While your cheeks are not quite rocketship-flapping, you can feel them being sucked toward the back of your skull (with the awareness that it’s probably not your best look).

What’s even more amazing though, is that after a few minutes like this, the newness of it fades, as do the sensations, and soon enough this speed becomes your new normal. You get up and walk around, go to the restroom, order a beverage.

From Japan to Boston – intuitive coaching as a medium to the fast track

Especially those of us who grew up in New England, steeped in the Yankee mentality of hard work – and sometimes even with the idea of suffering being a badge of honor – tend to have some skepticism toward easier and faster ways of doing things.

The Bullet train is a lot like coaching. We can drive, or take the regular train. We’ll get where we want to go sooner or later, even if it takes a long time and the ride is bumpy. Utilizing a coach is a way of saying ‘I’ve taken the hard way long enough. Now I’m ready for some speed and ease.’

It’s only for you if you’re you’re wanting to get where you want to go in your life – career, family, finances, relationships – with less pain and delay. When would now be a good time to create all that you dream of?

Your Boston Psychic and Intuitive Coach

 As Boston’s top intuitive and psychic, I’ve gotten to experience the benefits of coaching from a few angles. I wouldn’t be where I am without mentors, guides and coaches. Their guidance and support has saved me so much time and effort, and ultimately money too. I’m extra lucky in that I’ve also been blessed with a clear line of communication from Spirit.

On the other side of the intuitive coaching relationship I’m also grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to support and guide thousands of people, from entrepreneurs to athletes to stay-at-home parents.

With an intuitive coach, the benefits and blessings are even greater in that in addition to the coach’s support, you get to receive directly from spirit as well. I’m often amazed and touched at the magic that occurs. Sure, I’ve got a lot of experience and wisdom to share and I know what questions to ask to elicit your own answers. And when your higher self and Spirit conspire to communicate directly to you through me, that’s pure grace – and the results speak for themselves.
