“And to issue this caution. Don't be afraid of ghosts. Most of them don't mean anyone any harm. But do exercise caution in contacting them. Because when you open the door, less savory things can step through too.”

“Well, lets see. I reckon maybe I should adopt a motto of some kind. Like the Ghostbusters motto maybe. "We're ready to believe you."”

“We get a little weird around here if left to our own devices. Thats why it would be nice to have some of y'all step in and take us outside our own little insular group of nut wads!”

23 minutes ago - Comment - More
“It isn't being perceived as good looking. It isn't being rich. It isn't being "the greatest whatever." It isn't being adulated.”

“I am told that "you would be surprised what is found to be important when one has the perspective outside a body. It is not what you might expect."”
24 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I had to be guided not to cling to my Earthbound friends so much. I love working with them but was putting too great of a burden on them. And because several of them care about me (thank you!) they did not want to leave me alone. But I was stunting their healing.”
25 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Folks, it is necessary that we instead call on higher powers to fill these needs. These higher powers have boundless energy. They will not get drained like our Earthbound friends. They can give us what we need.”
26 minutes ago - Comment - More
“My friends do feel sad that there are people who desperately need guidance and companionship. These people take a liking to these friends and constantly call on them. Its sad because really the Earthbound spirits can't fulfill this terrible longing. And they feel awful because they can't.”
27 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Earthbound spirits often have a real need to make contributions that they feel will affect positive change in the world. This helps them heal and atone.”

“Contacts are generally about an hour at a time unless working with someone experienced who is able to "keep the door" open for longer. Usually both parties are focused on something.”
30 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Bon Scott came to him and said "don't worry, I'll help you." And they worked together for about an hour, according to Brian. I love that story. It puts chills up my spine--in a good way. Its also a really, really good illustration of how an Earthbound spirit works.”
31 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I'm sure a lot of you have heard Brian Johnson's account of how when he was working on Back in Black he started to have a lot of doubts and came to ask himself "what the hell made me think I could do this? What right do I have to do this?'”
32 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Generally speaking, I really like working with ghosts. It can be frustrating at times. Especially when I start to doubt.”
33 minutes ago - Comment - More
“The way to deal with most human spirits is the same way you deal with a living human. Be kind.”
33 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I explained to him that I in no way wanted him to depart and never return but that he couldn't constantly cling to me because it wasn't healthy for either of us. I explained that I liked him very much and loved working with him but we had to do it in a healthier way.”
34 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I experienced a bit of this with the Dead (protector personality) aspect of my friend's soul complex. He was so very lonely and unhappy that there was a period of time when he clung to the first sympathetic conduit that he came across--me.”
35 minutes ago - Comment - More
“If the spirit one is dealing with is basically a nice person, it can usually be explained to them that their constant presence becomes draining and is not healthy.”
36 minutes ago - Comment - More
“The problem is, such people can drain their incarnate contacts.”
36 minutes ago - Comment - More
“I find it necessary to point out that there are also spirits who take advantage of sympathetic humans. These people may or may not have been psychic vampires in life. Sometimes its simply a person who is recently dead and they are very, very unhappy and maybe somewhat frightened.”
37 minutes ago - Comment - More
“They love to work on creative stuff. If you're working on something and one of them steps in to help you out, its a really nice feeling. Plus its a give and take exchange rather than just one person taking from another.”
39 minutes ago - Comment - More
“The spirits I work with are mostly creative people. Probably because like attracts like.”
40 minutes ago - Comment - More
“So it is our duty as their friends not to drain them and to allow them to do their healing work.”
40 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Just like in life, some of these folks find it hard to say "no" when people are calling on them for help.”
41 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Here's the thing: an earthbound spirit is earthbound because he or she has stuff they still need to work out. They need to work on themselves, on healing, on their goals that they hope to accomplish.”
41 minutes ago - Comment - More
“We expect them to be available to us and bestow their mighty wisdom on us. we grant them demi-god status.”

“I think this is a fair way to handle things. But if anyone has other thoughts, let me know.”
45 minutes ago - Comment - More
“That way when people have questions that are outside the scope of the reading they will receive when they buy their autographed copy, or are more in depth than just something really quick, they can bring it here and we'll discuss it.”
45 minutes ago - Comment - More
“Thing is, I do have some health problems and I get too drained if I just allow ad-lib contact. That's why I made this room.”
46 minutes ago - Comment - More

“I've been hammering on us incarnates about our tendency to expect our spirit friends to be omniscient and omnipotent. THEY ARE NOT! To put it bluntly, these people have issues, or they wouldn't be Earthbound. They need to work on these issues and we need to let them.”
32 minutes ago - Comment - More
Eh? - 63Mago
Oh gosh, didn't see you there! What I mean is that some folks expect spirits to have answers for them or special powers. They have a bit more perspective on certain things, but they don't necessarily have the answer one is seeking. And they certainly aren't omnipotent. They are just human beings. - You (edit | delete)

“I think "celebrities" are just normal human beings that are treated and used by the media - and fullfill a certain need in society. I do not believe that they have anything in common with spirits.”

It's me again.
Sometimes I wish that I had some faith in a parrallel plane of spiritual beings...I did once after a ten year stretch in a PentecHOSTILE world full of angels and demons.

I through that baby out with the bathwater and now I live in a boring cheese sandwich universe.
Please don't hold it against me.
