When we, who are still living in physical bodies, are granted access to communications with the spirits of those who have passed on into eternal life, we have reason to give grateful thanks to a power greater than ourselves.  From my perspective as a psychic medium, when I am able to open up a part of my consciousness and enter the sacred space of communication, it is a real blessing for me, for the spirits and for those who receive messages from the spirits through mediumship.

At times on radio and television, spirit communication may look like a parlor game or entertainment. This is due to the quick messages that we must give. And while there is a great purpose for us to do mini-readings on the radio, on television and in chat rooms, it is important that the general public understand that having a private reading in person or on the phone, or even a small group reading with an experienced medium, is a totally different experience in which you will receive a more in depth message from a loved one who has passed on.  Of course there are always exceptions, and sometimes in a message given on the radio or on television, the experience may be incredible and a great deal of healing may take place. But generally speaking, if one wants an in depth reading, make an appointment for a private or small group reading.

The other day I was doing a reading for a woman on the phone, who praised me when I brought a good piece of evidence about a loved one who has passed over by saying “Oh, that was a hit.”  And when I brought a piece of information that she could not understand she said “Sorry, that was a miss.”  Halfway through the reading, I was beginning to feel like I was playing baseball rather than communicating with the world of spirit.  I finally suggested to my client that we not evaluate each comment that I made in terms of “hits or misses” and allow ourselves to enter the sacred space of spirit communication.   It was good that I made this comment, because as the client and I entered a more sacred space, the spirit blended with us in a totally different way, and now we were getting better messages from those in spirit. And in fact, there was also more factual information embedded in the messages. At this point, we were not interrupting the flow of the communication from spirit with quick evaluations of each point made.  Instead of feeling like I was in the middle of a spelling test, I was involved in the miraculous environment of spirit communication.

Now I could not blame my client for originally creating the atmosphere of a ball game or spelling quiz, as that kind of portrayal of spirit communication may be what she has been used to experiencing on the radio,  television and in some demonstrations of mediumship.  It becomes all too easy for both mediums and those who receive readings, to experience the communication as a game.  Because we are bringing evidence about those who lived in order to prove that we are communicating, it does become necessary to evaluate whether the evidence is correct.  But hopefully there is a way for us as mediums to blend so deeply with the spirits of those who have passed over, that the messages that come through will flow naturally and will contain factual information that in fact proves we are in communication.

Communication with those who have passed on is very sacred, and hopefully we can find ways to communicate with our loved ones that reflects our gratitude for the opportunity to communicate.

People were so happy buying books to help feed hungry babies in India….. April 13, 2009

There are hungry children all around the world, and if it makes you feel too sad to read these words, please try to keep reading anyway, as there is SO much that each one of us can do without spending much money at all. Yesterday I was part of an event where people bought books in order to help feed babies in Southern India. If you could have seen the smiles on people’s faces as they paid their money. I have never seen people so happy letting go of their money, other than at an incredible sale at Feline’s Basement in Boston, or at a fantastic yard sale.  The point is, people like a good deal and people like to help others.  In a fundraiser yesterday at a Spiritualist Church in Salem, New Hampshire, people were given a great opportunity to help others and buy books.  It was a win win situation.  I had my new book for sale Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World. This book is about honoring our own unique spiritual experiences and about evolving spiritually so that we can each make better choices for our troubled world.  I want to use this book at events like the fundraiser yesterday. The book IS about spiritual evolution, and so it should be used to help others.  I enjoyed the fundraiser yesterday, and we raised enough money to put one new baby in the feeding program, and when a few more dollars are raised to add to the funds raised yesterday, we will be able to add a second new baby to the feeding program in Southern India.

As a Spiritualist minister and medium, I serve many Spiritualist churches in the United States. As an author of four books, when I do book signings at churches, I often donate a box of my books and then all the monies received during the sale of the books goes to the Babies Need Food project, which is sponsored by our family charity: The Rani Roberts Memorial Corporation.  Every time we raise between $125 and $150 we are able to put another baby into our feeding program in southern India, which feeds a baby for the first two years of life.  Yesterday, at the Spiritualist Church in Salem, Massachusetts, people bought books knowing that every penny would go to buy formula and medications for needy babies. We are fortunate to have family members that do all of the administrative work in the foundation, so that all monies collected can go to buy food and medications.

I thank the Spiritualist Church in Salem, New Hampshire for their support.

I know that many of you already give what you can to charity and hopefully all of us will continue to give all that we can during these hard financial times.

American Federation of Spiritualist Churches Convention 2008 December 5, 2008

Hi Friends,

I am about to leave for Plymouth, MA where I will spend the weekend attending the annual convention of the American Federation of Spiritualist Churches.  I am very happy to be part of the religion of Spiritualism as my experiences in this religion have changed my concept of life.   In my early days in the religion, I received many readings and got the proof that I needed, that life is continuous, and that when the physical body dies, the consciouness of the individual continues on in eternal life.

Since my early days, I have had many years of experience developing my own ability to give mediumistic readings, and I have done alot of light trance work where I have received messages that I believe to be from a higher source.  The messages I have received have been life changing.

One of the things I like most about Spiritualism is that our churches serve people from all religions and all walks of life.   Sometimes people from other religions come and see us for a year or so after the passing of a loved one.  We do not try to convert them if they are happy in their religion.  We help them through the grief process with our services of spiritual  healing and our sacred mediumistic messages.

Some who come to the religion of Spiritualism give up their former religion and become Spiritualists.  That is what happened to me.  I felt more comfortable with the principles of Spiritualism than I had felt in the religion of my early years.

There are many good Spiritualist organizations.

American Federation of Spiritualist Churches

National Spiritualist Association of Churches

Spiritualist National Union of Great Britain

All of these organizations offer correspondence courses, so if you are interested, let me know and I will help you find them. If you use Google, you can also find them on your own.

So I am off to convention.

Do you have any questions about Spiritualism?
