Yes, I See Dead People

Yes, I See Dead People

Have you ever seen a spirit? I remember when I started to see auras and spirits around the time that I was 18 years old. Nothing has been the same ever since.

When I was living in NYC, going to college, I would practice giving mini readings to my willing friends. It really caught my attention when I would accurately tell a stranger at a party all about their personality, see tumors in certain areas of their body, or tell if someone was taking drugs. When I shared what I had seen, they would look at me with wide eyes and validate the information I was giving them.

To be honest, I was as shocked too. When I received validation from people that the things I was seeing were in fact the things going on in their bodies, that’s when I started to trust my intuition.

I remember when I was 18 years old and I walked into my apartment bedroom, and I saw a full head-to-toe silhouette of a spirit standing next to my bed. I looked away and looked back and it was still there. I asked the spirit some questions and realized it was my grandma, my mother’s mother. For whatever reason I didn’t feel scared. Her energy was very soothing. That was the first time I saw a spirit so clearly for more than a moment.

She continued to flicker the lights in my bathroom from time to time, and I could feel her presence with me when I was alone. Later when I went to a medium in Long Island, NY for the first time he began the reading by telling me about my grandmother who was often with me, was trying to take care of me. I had not told him anything about seeing my grandmother’s spirit. He even told me her name within the first five minutes of the reading!

It was really incredible to me when the medium went on to validate how my grandmother flickered the lights in my home, and how she was with me when I needed her. He gave me detailed information about her that was impossible for him to find online. Because of this reading I was able to trust that I had indeed seen my grandmother, and I had been communicating with other spirits as well.

This was when the floodgates of my awareness began to open. I started actively pursuing ways to become more intuitive. I went to Omega Center in Rhinebeck NY for a week long intensive course with James Van Praagh, Mavis Patilla and Tony Stockwell to sharpen my mediumship skills. I also went to a workshop lead by the famous medium John Holland. I was now regularly seeing spirits and my level of accuracy was increasing.

In 2010 I started attending a weekly mediumship development group in Chicago, and I ended up being a regular member for two years. The things that we saw in group and the messages that were shared from the spirit word blew me away!

Now, I have an 11 month old son who sees spirits as well. Together we regularly communicate with spirits who are around us. He is even more aware of spirits than I am. His awareness challenges me to increase my awareness so that I can have a chat with them or clear the away if needed. He will point at them or stare at them, and when there is one near by that makes him uncomfortable he will stare at it and become restless.

When communicating with spirits, probably the worst thing you can do is ignore them. I’ve seen many people ignore spirits, and this only makes them more frustrated that they are not being heard. Here are some questions to ask if you encounter a spirit:

  • Do I know you? If not, do you know someone I know?
  • What is the purpose of you being here?
  • Are you male or female? What was your personality like?
  • Do you require me to do anything for you?
  • What are you trying to tell me?
  • Can you please make your message super clear so I can understand?
  • What will it take for me to remove you from here?

As always, ask the question, and don’t look for the answer. The awareness will come to you, and you may even find that things start going better than you ever imagined! Doesn’t that sound fun!? Try out these questions…but only do it if you want an easier life.


Seeing and talking to spirits has been a regular part of my word for about 15 years now, and I realize that I now have a sense of ease with communicating with spirits. People have been approaching me for years to put together a mediumship class, and finally I have created one that addresses all of your questions.

    but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read.
