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.”

The Spirits of Charlestown Haunted Historical Ghost Tours

I returned from England on Monday of Halloween week very looking forward to conducting this year’s Spirits of Charlestown Historical Ghost Tours. Unfortunately, between the election and a serious bout with the flu, I haven’t had a chance to post anything until now. So, though it’s two weeks late, here’s a quick update and a few pictures from our 2016 tours.

The Spirits of Charlestown Give A Unique Story Giving Voice To The Voiceless

I feel blessed that the Spirits of Charlestown ghost tours are popular and at least 20 people per night took the tour.  I’m usually a little fearful that the tours aren’t scary enough. We cover a lot of history and what spirits have to say about what they experienced is more gruesome than scary.  I used to think I wanted to live back then until their stories changed my mind. 

This year I experimented with, “on the spot” spirit communication to see if the historic spirits I talk about on the tour would come back and tell us more. Coincidentally, (we know there is no such thing as coincidence) on each tour one attendee would ask if the spirits ever came back. On the final tour of the season, when we were gathered at John Harvard Mall, that question came up again. I said, “Let me check in with them,”.Almost Immediately, a discarnate voice whispered in my ear, “Thank you! This is exactly what we wanted! To get your interest in our stories.” 

Since all the indications are that the spirits want to participate in the tours, this Boston psychic medium won’t be tentative next year to ask the spirits to join us. The attendees are certainly curious! Perhaps we’ll get the spirits to reveal even more!

Space Clearing Historic Homes

When it comes to space clearing my favorite structures to clear are historic homes. I find them endlessly fascinating because old buildings are likely to have energetic imprints from days gone by. I’m highly sensitive to these imprints and often find myself traveling back in time witnessing repetitions of important events that took place in that building.

The easiest way to explain this phenomenon is that high-intensity emotions and events are energetically embedded in the fabric of a location. Space clearing cannot remove this type of energy, known as place memory, or residual energy.

What happens during a space clearing ritual?

When I prepare for a space clearing, if at all possible, I visit the site. I put my hands on the walls to sense the embedded energy. All buildings have the potential for energetic imprints. Historic homes have been around longer so it’s more likely that a tragedy has happened within the structure. A few extreme examples of place memories in historic homes are: Seeing people in period clothing experiencing what life was like before the Battle of Bunker Hill, hearing their conversations as a family deals with a devasting influenza, or the sound of a bugle playing taps at Gettysburg. Please note that not all place memories are negative. 

As I said earlier, space clearing can’t remove residual energy. Space clearings address a different kind of energy. The kind of energy that accumulates in buildings over time as people go about living their lives. Most often, I clear the energetic residue from negative life experiences such as anger, frustrations, fears, illnesses, divorce, bankrupcy, deceipt, and other types of low vibration energy.

Space clearing techniques

I’ve experimented with various combinations of space clearing techniques when clearing a historic home. It’s been my experience that older buildings have more entrenched energy that is harder to release. Kinesthetically, it feels similar to a room without ventilation – heavy and stale. 

The combination of space clearing techniques that seem to work well in an old structure are clapping, sound healing, and essential oils. The strongest of these three tools is the Tibetan singing bowl. As I walk around the building playing the Tibetan bowl, sacred sound waves permeate the foundation, floors, ceiling, and walls, raising the vibration. 

 The building starts resonating at a higher frequency. The space feels lighter, more peaceful, and soothing. I finish the clearing by misting the entire area with a solution of water mixed with essential oils such as lemon, orange or lavender.

Top Ten Reasons For Doing A Space Clearing

What results should I expect from a space clearing?

Space clearings set healing energy in motion. Houses centuries old are able to absorb the higher frequency vibration. Be aware that historic homes may need more than one space clearing.

One client reported that after a space clearing in her Victorian home that she went off in a new creative direction. Another client said the clearing had a calming effect on his pets. Results are unique for each clearing. Healing energy goes where it’s most needed in the building. This holds true for the people who inhabit the house as well.

Psychics Who Fight Crime

 

There are many psychics who work with police and other government agencies to help solve mysteries and locate missing persons. Psychic detectives usually consult on cases that have been open for too long. Open cases with no leads are a burden to most investigators because they feel they have failed their community and the victims.

It is during these times, where law enforcement will try unconventional methods of investigation and call in the psychic investigator. It is unwise for a psychic to call the police randomly if they feel they have certain information pertaining to a case.

Most police departments will claim they do not seek out or use psychics at all to solve crimes. However, they must follow up on any credible tips they receive. Unfortunately, random information given from an unknown psychic will probably not be taken to heart. Furthermore, it could also tie up useful police resources on the case on actual hard evidence.

Why Sometimes Psychics Aren’t Accurate

The best thing for a psychic to do who has information about a case is to wait and see if the police can solve the investigation on their own. Remember, they are usually only open to interpreting info from a reputable psychic and if the case has gone cold and they have no other leads.

Psychic Skills Used In Fighting Crime

Many psychic detectives use psychometry as a means to gather information on their case. Psychometry is a psychic ability that allows a person to sense or ‘read’ the history of an object by touching it. Psychic detectives will ask for a personal item from the missing person and hold it, then enter a trance like state until they begin to receive impressions.

These impressions can be perceived as images and emotions or even certain sensory output, like smell, sound or taste. The psychic may also pick up a description of the perpetrator, a name, a motive or other important details.

Certain psychics can step into the energy of the killer as they are committing the crime. They may also be able to experience the crime while in progress from the victim’s perspective

Other types of abilities that can be useful in psychic detective investigations are retro-cognition, telepathy, dowsing, mediumship, and remote viewing. Retro-cognition is being aware of past events, sometimes information is passed on from the other side and other times being in a certain place where the crime occurred can help.

Telepathy could be used by reading the thoughts of possible suspects. Dowsing involves being able to pinpoint a certain location where a body, murder weapon or suspect can be found using diving rods. Mediumship is receiving information from the spirits on the other side and remote viewing is similar to dowsing but has a specific distant target in mind that the remote viewer sketches from what they see in their mind’s eye.

Yet, no matter how successful a certain department is while working with a psychic, it is still seen as taboo. Most departments will not work with any psychic who doesn’t have a proven track record. There are many psychic detectives still alive today who have been working with law enforcement for decades.

If this type of work interests you, you can always offer your services to the general public first, and then when you start making a name for yourself, then families may request you be involved during certain police investigations. As a career, a psychic detective must be good at what they do and be able to handle the upsetting and sometime dangerous information or situations they could find themselves in while investigating a crime.

Ten Ways To Know If You’re Psychic

I’ve spent several years working on missing person cases both independently and as part of a group called, “The Cold Case Collaborative” sponsored by Boston University’s Private Detective Program. Psychic detective work requires a deep commitment to work in the best interest of the families of victims. I feel this is the most difficult of all possible applications for psychic ability.
