Guest Appearance

Hello everyone! Today’s post is going to be a brief one, but I wished to come by and share a link for any of you who might be interested. On Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of having a nice chat with the fantastic Edward Kelly on his paranormal podcast, “The Evil Scotsman”. Don’t let the name put you off, as there doesn’t seem to be an evil bone in the man’s body…but seriously…what a fun name! How could I pass up being a guest on a show with a name like that? I’m glad that I didn’t, because it was a true pleasure and I look forward to going back on the show again in the future.

*Warning- the theme song for the show has quite a bit of adult language. For those of you who might not like that, you might wish to skip the first bit and the very end. For me, it was an added bonus. What can I say? >:)

*Warning 2 – There are some audio issues, mainly to do with lag, which I suspect is a location thing more than anything else. His show is well worth listening to at any rate, and I’m not just saying that because he was nice enough to invite me on…seriously.

For A Good Time-Check Out The Malliard Report

If you’re a fan of the paranormal and like listening to a fast paced, interactive radio show, you really should check out The Malliard Report. This is the first time that I’ve come here to recommend a program, so that’s saying something. Not only does the host, Jim Malliard have some of the top guests in the paranormal community (as well as some relatively unheard of but cool ones), but he does it all in one hour. Another great thing about this show is that Jim doesn’t only focus on the serious side of things, he and his guests have a lot of fun and get to be themselves.

The show is live on Tuesday evenings at 9pm Eastern time, with a live chat which you can find here which starts at 8pm. The community there is a lot of fun. By clicking the link that I just posted in the last sentence, you can also listen to free streaming past episodes anytime.

The main site for the Malliard Report contains a nice listing of previous shows, where you can read descriptions and get a direct link to listen to specific episodes.

So, if you love the paranormal and an engaging host and listener base, you really should check it out. A lot of interesting material is presented in a really fun and  naturally flowing way.

Honoring Those Who Came Before

Bethany Cemetery 10-10-10 026The month of October is undoubtedly one of my favorite times of year. It is when we enter the phase of the year in which we go within…we nest…we tend to our home fires. It is also when the veil between our physical realm and that of the spirit realm is at its thinnest. As a person who is sensitive to spirit anyway, October tends to be a very active month for me. Honoring those who came before is something which is increasingly important to me and I know that it is for many of you too.

I have many people on the other side now…both of my parents, all of my grandparents, a sister, a daughter, friends, other family, and a few of my past loves. It is important to me to be mindful of them at this time…to pay them my respects…to remember. Not only that, I sometimes ask for them to enter my dreams and talk to me…to guide me as they would if they were still here. Some might think that this is all a figment of the imagination…or utterly ridiculous. To that I would say that the belief of the person experiencing something and the impact that it has on them is truly the only thing that matters if you think about it…regardless of your personal take on it.

For the past three years, I have lived in a building with A LOT of history…and therefore, a lot of spirit activity. It hasn’t been that many years that I have permitted myself to be open and receptive for any longer than the time that it used to take me to freak out. I’m just being honest here. This gift is not one which I’ve always had much comfort with…I used to keep it locked down tighter than tight. The funny thing about that is that no matter how tightly I though I had it locked away…it was always there anyway…there were always glimmers of things.

Over the past five years especially, I’ve had a big shift when it comes to not only accepting, but appreciating these parts of myself. My first year in this building was pretty crazy for me. As time went by, I have learned the ‘hot’ spots and the general tone of the energies in certain parts of this place. One spot in the building is a little tricky. There are times that you can be in this location and feel perfectly at ease…and at others…the air feels colder and there is a sense to keep on moving because someone/something unfriendly is there and it isn’t good to linger. Being able to prepare is so helpful…let me tell 4aa3b-flowers004you! Last year, I spent some time in various areas of my building acknowledging and honoring those still lingering…and it was good.There were other spots, like the one I talked about above that I simply went through acknowledging their privacy and expressing my respect for that.

This year however, I am mainly focusing on my ancestors and loved ones on the other side. The desire to connect with them is strong. It isn’t that I am closing off to others…because that’s just not the way that I am. This is the first year in my journey that I feel ready and prepared to truly honor and thank my loved ones. I’ll be doing some special things for them on an altar this year…putting out some of their favorite things. I’ll even be preparing some of their favorite meals in remembrance.

Do any of you have special things that you do to honor those on the other side?
