I’m always pleasantly amazed – and very grateful – when people share with me experiences they’ve had at events where I bring messages from spirit. I’m especially thankful when they pass on their thoughts to me, because I love getting feedback. (Plus, I rarely remember what I’ve said those nights.) Your comments help me become a better medium. Plus, your stories often tell me things that I’m not aware of when I’m standing and talking in front of people. For example, I never heard the knocks on the door at the back of the room when I was giving one woman in the audience a message that her father was trying to communicate with her.

At a recent event where I took questions from the audience, an elderly woman asked me this: “Can a spirit visit a house and leave a scent?” I smiled, and told her that was very likely. Loved ones who have passed into spirit want us to know that they are still with us, and one way of doing that is by leaving a “calling card” that identifies the spirit – a fragrance unique to that person, a knock on the door or, in some cases, a soft voice that calls our name. The woman nodded, then said sadly, “A couple days after my husband died, I smelled his cologne in the kitchen. Was that his way of saying goodbye for the very last time?”

SHAME ON YOU!!
My husband loves websites that offer free astrology readings. I don’t have the heart to tell him that the readings they email him every morning are designed to be one-size-fits-all, because not every Leo in the world was born in the same year as he and has the same rising and moon signs in the exact same place on their charts. Yet even though every Leo gets the same reading, my husband still thinks the message is just for him. Oh, well, it’s all in fun… Until the other night he showed me a very disturbing ad the website had sent him – and I’m sure it was sent to all of the website’s subscribers.

LIVE THROUGH IT
Marilyn wanted to hear from her daughter, Genevieve – “Jenny” to her friends. When we were on the telephone arranging time for our session, Marilyn told me Jenny had passed into spirit about five years ago, leaving three small children and a very distraught husband. By the end of the phone call, Marilyn was in tears, and my heart went out to her. I prayed a moment, asking my guides to be extra helpful when Marilyn would see me in person next week. Yet as I hung up the receiver, I couldn’t help feeling that there was something Marilyn wasn’t telling me.

There’s only one thing more important than knowing who we are – and that’s being aware of where we come from. I realized that recently, when I was giving messages from spirit as part of the holiday service at our Spiritualist church. As soon as I said a quick, silent prayer for guidance, I felt the presence of a grandmotherly energy who wanted to speak. I described the woman: a short, stout woman with an Eastern European background, with rosy cheeks and a dimple on her chin. She showed me a picture of herself peeling potatoes in her kitchen and sitting beside a kettle. She loved to cook, but what made her so memorable is she also loved to laugh and tell stories while she was in the kitchen. When I asked if anyone in the congregation recognized this grandma, I saw a young woman in the first row blinking back tears.
