I am able to commune with some people and some animals that are in the spirit world. Mostly, I do it through what is called automatic writing. Although I was able to have a telepathic conversation with my Dad when he passed on his way out...and felt him with me. I live in a city far away. I knew when he passed and stopped everything I was doing. Later, after we had our great conversation and he left I got a call from my sister telling me he passed. I said I know and told her what time it was when he passed, my husband is witness to this. Everyone in my family wanted to know our conversation so I wrote it down for them. (I left out the part of how he really saw our situation and that he would soften my mom's heart to help us financially more). It is true that since that time my mom is always like are you all right, do you need anything?! He wanted me to go outside and told me to look up at the sky. He told me to spend more time outdoors. He said anytime I wanted to connect with him to just look at the sky. I said but Dad, if I was on the other side of the world I would be looking in a completely different direction. He said you don't understand it doesn't matter! That was quite humorous. I also got a letter through automatic writing from my sister in law that had passed for my brother. I know she moved heaven and earth to find a way to contact him. Once she found out I was an open channel, she would not leave me alone. It was like she was riding my shoulder and I kept telling her don't put me in the middle of this. She would not give up and I finally took the letter. Then I called my older brother who called my younger brother to ask him if he wanted the letter. He said to send it. When I visited his house a few years ago I can tell you exactly where he keeps the letter and that he read it every night. We have never spoken about it though. He was so upset about her sudden death she was the love of his life since he was in grade school. After he got the letter his grief lifted. I am not like John Edwards, touring the country and famous and all that. It is kind of like being a middleman, a mailman so to speak. It is not something that interests me enough to do it for a living. I don't need to prove anything to anyone. I don't mind helping out sometimes. I also was consoling a boy whose dog died in YA and got a message from the dog. I was able to tell him what his dog's favorite toy was. It was a rubber yellow chewed up ball. He said that many dogs have that favorite toy. So I asked a question what is your dog's favorite toy. Some of the answers were a yellow tennis ball but no one's dog had a yellow chewed up rubber ball. A while back our house was hit by lighting and we were having trouble collecting from the insurance company.
