If I Tell people I see Ghosts they will think I am crazy.

If I tell people I see ghosts they will think I am crazy. If I had a dollar for every time I had that thought in my life I would have enough money to pay someone to write this for me. Seriously, we all feel that way. Every one of us who have a bit of the gift or the full version of it has that thought, and why wouldn’t we? When people say they can hear or see something no one else can we think that there is a mental health issue with that person or that they are crazy or talking to their dog and listening to the directions Fido is giving on how to make his steak properly. Sure out there in the world there are people who do need help and should be questioning the things that they hear, what makes us different? For starters the voices are gentle and the people we see are not severely angry and telling us to hurt ourselves or anyone else. We experience for the most part spirits who are looking for help, or those who are just roaming and looking to get some attention or tell a story. I am not a Doctor and nothing you read here should be taken as medical advice, if you feel you need to speak to a professional than do so. There is never anything wrong with looking to a professional for help.

One of the things that you should be asking yourself is “How often do I experience seeing or hearing spirits and where does it occur the most often?” This could help you determine if you are living in a very active environment or if you are a magnet and experience phenomenon everywhere. As a matter of fact it could be both and that’s great too. So, when did you start noticing that you could see hear and talk to people who weren’t there? How did you know the difference between live people and spirits? Does this sound familiar? As a child I would carry on conversations with people and my parents would tell me to stop because there was no one there. I would walk into buildings and homes and know the names of people who lived there and that they had passed on. I would have visitors in my room at night and they would bother me and frighten me, my parents would just chalk it up to over active imagination and childish behavior. Is any of that ringing a bell? Probably right and now that you are older and reading this it is starting to flood back to you and the memories are very similar to what you are reading.

It’s wonderful to have such a great gift, or it’s awful. That depends on who you ask, I love it but I know very gifted folks who just want to turn it off and lead a “normal” life. I have news for them and everyone else, it is more normal to be so connected to the spirit world than it is to be so disconnected like our society has become. Not to get all preachy, I am just saying that looking back at recorded human history that our ancestors had much more spiritual bases for living and we seem to have lost that. It’s ok though because right now there is a huge amount of people waking up every morning and realizing that there is more out there and they are becoming open to the things we are discussing here. That’s what is important, not that other people are accepting of what we can do but that it is on more people’s minds and that makes the connection to the spirit world stronger. The veil gets thinner every time another person becomes more accepting that there may be more out there than what we perceive on the physical plane.

Hold on Scott, what the heck is the veil and what do you mean it gets easier for us? The veil simply is a reference to what separates our physical world to the next dimension and the spirit world. I once heard a Medium say that the next dimension was only 3 feet in front of us at all times. Think about that for a few minutes, it makes what we are talking about a little more tangible. The idea that the more people who are accepting of any idea is the concept of collective thought. For example, one person dreamt that as humans we could go into outer space then that idea caught on and more people thought it was possible and that moved the idea and concept forward to the point that it happened. If a million people are saying that they believe that there is another world or dimension and there are those who can tap into it and communicate with beings there than that is a strong collective thought. If ten million people accepted and believed it then it would be a tremendously strong idea and make the overall phenomenon easier to attain. That collective thought also affects people who may not have a psychic bone in their body, and it’s just enough that if you told them you had gifts that allowed spirit communication that they would not scoff or blow you off or think you were crazy.

I myself have been experiencing this more than I have ever in my life. I have to give a huge thanks to the television people who gave all the ghost hunters and mediums a show on major networks a shot. Those people have increased the acceptance that there may be more to life than what we just see in front of us. They have shown us that there are forces that can manipulate electronics, talk to an audio recorder and even manifest as shadows on film. Does this turn a skeptic into a believer? I don’t think so but it certainly does put a seed of thought in them that there could be something to it. The same things with the famous mediums and psychics on television, they often have segments where they are in public and give random strangers a message from a deceased relative. Does this make a believer of everyone? No but it sure does make folks feel good and give them hope that there is more out there and when we pass that it’s not darkness and nothing to look forward to.

This brings me to my point; don’t be afraid to exercise your gifts. Don’t be afraid to tell your family or friends about what you can do. You would be surprised at how accepting they will be, now if they are not I wouldn’t recommend trying to shove it down their throats. That’s also not healthy and not what we are here to do. Simply put it out there and gauge what they say, see of you will get that support that you are looking for. If you are not getting any support or they do think you are crazy it may be best to just branch out and find other local people who are like minded as you are and find support in them.  In no time at all your abilities will manifest themselves and your courage and confidence will develop with them. Remember that you can always come here and ask questions and feel free to comment and look for help. That’s what this is all about. Remember to practice and don’t doubt yourself, we have a ways to go together and this is just the start. See you next time.



The Third Eye



I am ready to see what else you have to offer Scott, what’s next? I’m going to talk to you about an eye you didn’t know you had, or maybe you did and didn’t know what it was or how to use it. It is what we psychics call “The Third Eye.” Don’t let the idea of having a third eye scare you away, you’ve had it your whole life and more than likely have used it a few times unknowingly. The third eye is located between your eyes and between your ears and is inside your head, it is not like your other eyes though. It is called the pineal gland and it is located on the brain, you can google it when you have the time, the placement is only mildly important and the physicality of it is not really important to us here at this level.

When I was young I would take my pointer finger and close my two physical eyes and slowly move my outstretched finger toward my forehead until it got super tingly. This is something that I thought was normal and that everyone could do, little did I know that wasn’t true and that I was activating my third eye. At the time I had never heard of the third eye and I had never heard of being psychic and I certainly had no idea of the journey ahead of me.  As I got older an my abilities got stronger I investigated and found what the third eye was and what it did, and why when I would play my game that I would have more concentrated feelings and emotions. Have you ever felt that tingle in the center of your forehead or any pressure? What were the circumstances?

Now I am going to give you a quick exercise to try, it’s my little childhood game so it’s fun.  First take a deep breath through your nose and feel it go into your belly, now exhale and let it out your mouth. After you have done this several times and feel nice and relaxed move to the second step. This is next part, I want you to close your eyes and clear your mind. Let go of all the things on your mind, the bills the noise the family and all your troubles, imagine a blank movie screen. The third step is to slowly move your finger toward the center of your head. Are you starting to feel anything physically or are you getting any images that you can see with your eyes closed?  Don’t be surprised if you see colors and feel pressure and or tingling in the center of your forehead. If this feels uncomfortable go ahead and stop, rub your forehead and do it again when you are ready. This simple exercise is the easiest way of opening that third eye, it is a simple exercise and can be done just about anywhere. Just do this a few times a week and it will help you focus on using that third eye when it is needed. Eventually just thinking about doing this exercise will activate your third eye, mine is tingling as I write this and that is how powerful a tool this is.

Scott, ok here’s the thing, when is it going to be needed? I can tell you when I use it and how, this can be a guide for how you can use your third eye or simply a jumping point for you to start your own journey on what to do with it. I use it when I get that feeling in my gut that says I need to pay attention or that there is more to a situation than I am picking up with my other five senses. Let’s  say I walk into a home of a friend and I get a nagging feeling that there is someone who wants to talk that I don’t see and no one else is acknowledging, I simply close my eyes and concentrate on my third eye. I take several deep breaths and let images come to me in my little movie theater in my head, the third eye projects images on the screen and I get the information I need. Sometimes it’s a name or a photo of a person who wants to communicate or just a sprit roaming around the house that wants to be acknowledged.  After this starts happening to you it’s important to remember to not be scared, nothing is going to hurt you and you are in control of everything happening.

With that I can also tell you that this tool is very handy for those of us who get feelings that we can’t shake and need to express in some form. Imagine that you have your cell phone out and are getting messages but your screen isn’t displaying the information, you know that there is a message but without the screen you can’t see who is trying to reach you or what they want. This amazing gift that we all possess is the same thing but it is built into us, we just need to learn how to access it and use it. The next time you get that unshakable feeling that you need to know something, close your eyes and preform the exercise from above. What images or words are you receiving, what do they mean and how do they relate to what you are doing?

The most important lesson I can teach every time with each technique and I will repeat often is that you should not second guess yourself. Validation will come to you in ways that will surprise you, when you are least expecting it and in forms you couldn’t guess. I know that sounds kind of cryptic but just remember that when you are getting information it is not always strait forward and to the point, as an example I once received an image of an orchid flower with a fire in the center of it. What the heck did that mean? Well I was doing a reading for a woman and she understood it completely, a friend of her had recently passed in a fire and at the funeral there were orchids everywhere. So that was validation of who I was talking to and helped me connect to that person better. Don’t be frustrated if at first information is scattered and kind of all over the place, you will get better with practice and focus. If you had never written a note with your weak hand you wouldn’t expect to write a perfect letter to someone the first try. The letters and punctuation would look sloppy and poorly done but with practice it would get better and this is what we are working on here, even myself every day I have to practice and know that I work with a certain amount of room for error. Don’t be discouraged and keep practicing, until next time thanks for reading!


Our first story, together.


Let’s take a break from the flow for a minute and have a little fun in the form of a few ghost stories!  I love to tell a good ghost story and I hope you like to read them.  Several months ago I decided to take my wife to the movies, we were going to see Dead Pool in the opening week and it was sold out at our local Giantplex movie house. After a few minutes of enduring the usual ribbing of why I didn’t check beforehand if they were sold out we decided to go to a smaller and much older movie house in a small town that neighbors ours.

The town is nestled up against the Atlantic Ocean and has had its fair share of ghostly lore attached to it. It’s a middle class blue collar town with a mix of just about every type of person you could imagine. The theater is located on the main strip of the old town in succession of buildings all built together like one big store front down the quarter mile of concrete and glass on both sides. Walking up to the theater is very unassuming; it has the usual movie posters outside and the luring smell of over buttered popcorn wafting through the closed doors. My wife and I went into the theater where an enthused teenager was selling tickets for the next showing of the Marvel movie. Looking around I could see that the theater was pretty empty, the small lobby had no one in it but the three of us and in my normal humor I asked if there were any seats left. The kid behind the counter gave me the same look my own kid gives me when I make a bad dad joke, and promptly completed the transaction moving us on into the area that leads to the three small movie theaters inside.

The small lobby is decorated in dark red with gold trim and wooden panel walls, very classic movie house feel and that is part of the charm of this theater. I hadn’t been to this theater in years, my dad used to take me there when I was younger to see every movie I had pretty much ever seen. As I made it into my teenage years the big theater opened and we all kind of forgot about this little jewel. From here I’m going to say that fate brought me to this theater, who knew Ryan Reynolds playing a crazy comic book character would lead to such a life changing event?

While walking into theater room one I got that urge, the urge to look around for spirit or a spirit for that matter. I spotted an old clock the kind that people refer to as a Grandfather clock and probably the perfect clock to mention in a ghost story. After a brief look around the corners and down the narrow hall I didn’t spot anything that warranted a psychic look so we continued into the theater, which was empty besides two other movie goers and us. As we waited for the movie to start rolling I found my attention pulled to the first row of the theater where I spotted what I was looking for, a spirit. The ghost if you will, was very regular looking, in the way that he was dressed in a suit and had his grey hair combed over his bald spot. He looked back at me and we acknowledged each other, this wasn’t too normal for me but I wasn’t afraid because it was in the world of kind of normal. I mentioned to my wife that I could see him and she as usual told me that she could not see the invisible person I was talking about.

The movie played and we had a great time, I forgot the ghost was there and didn’t pay attention to him the rest of the time we were there, this could be the first step in the direction of what I did wrong that night. We made it home, a short 10 minute drive back to the house. I locked the doors and my wife made sure the children were in bed. I did my usual wind down for the evening, a little facebook and Instagram and got ready for bed. That night I had one of the worst nights sleep ever and so did my wife, I was tossing and turning and when I did fall asleep I felt like my skin was crawling and making me want to stay awake. The morning came and the day went by like any other day. That evening as we were getting ready for bed, my wife asked me to sleep on the couch if I was going to toss and turn all night. I agreed to that request because two nights of my wife not having a good night sleep could be detrimental to everyone’s wellbeing.

I made my nest on the couch and turned in for the night at about ten thirty or so. This is where if you get scared easy you may want to skip over to the end. I was woken up with an icy grip of two hands around my throat, pressing so hard that I could feel my airway collapsing and so much pressure I was sunk into the couch. I immediately thought that someone was in the house and trying to kill me. I started to flail my arms and with my eyes open I could not see a thing but what I can only describe as stars appearing before me as I lost breath. I couldn’t feel a body on top of me and this kicked in my psychic awareness, this is an attack by a spirit. I retreated into my head quickly, reciting every prayer I knew and begging for the help of my Guardian Angels, Guides and God. Half way through my second prayer the grip released and I was able to spring up from the couch fully awake. I saw my attacker in the form of a black shadow and chased it across my living room to the stairs that lead to the bedrooms. The shadow split into pieces and dissipated. I calmed my nerves down and said several more prayers and an intention to keep my home protected from that spirit and any others that were going to do me or my family harm.

This event lead me to make a desperate call for help to a local paranormal investigation team, the Paranormal Activity Research Society of NJ. I was able to write them an email of the account and ask them if they had ever heard any accounts of that theater having activity. Within a few hours my phone rang and the founder of the team was on the line with me, no doubt seeing if I was a cook or for real. After giving him the rundown of myself and my abilities he decided that there was  some validity to my tale. As fate would have it, he lived in the town where the theater was located and knew the owner. After reaching out to the owner of the theater my contact on the team was able to find out that there were stories about the theater but nothing was ever confirmed.

Fast forward a little bit, I was invited to be on the team and now am an active member. We were invited to investigate the theater whenever we were ready and will be doing so soon. I have not returned there personally yet and have no desire to, whatever is there was angry I had seen it and took its anger out on me in my home. It is important for everyone at every level to protect themselves from the spirits that roam, they are the same that they were in life and if they were angry alive then they are angry on the other side. If you come in contact with a spirit make sure that you say out loud before leaving the location that they are not welcome to follow you or leave the area they are in.

I hope you liked my story and I promise that there are many more plus there will be developments later on this story once we go to the theater to investigate. As always, thanks for reading and I hope to have you come back.   -Scotty
