My Dad passed away around Yule this last year and since crossing over to the Spirit World he has been a busy guy. Immediately after his passing he was winking at me, squeezing my daughters hand and blowing smoke at my husband. Within weeks of his passing not only had our direct family members had contact from my dad but many others.
My dad was fascinated by our families ability to communicate between the worlds of the living and the dead. In the last year and a half before he passed he spent a lot of his time developing his own ability as a Medium. He has apparently carried this work over with him. Last night on the way home from work I was talking to him in my car, something I do a lot as my dad always liked riding around. When I got home I was sitting talking to my husband & my keys that I had thrown on the kitchen table moved and jingled, it was my dad. Since really stepping into my work as a Medium the amount of moving items and unexplained noise in and around me has gotten much less. This is because it takes a lot of energy for them to move things. Simply put they have told me its so much easier to just talk to me then to go moving shit around. My dad is a refreshingly, new to the world of the dead soul who wants to learn to do whatever he can. I remember one of the conversations I had with him about the dead and him asking me if they sit in chairs. I told him that they could if they wanted to but it is not really necessary. Well he really likes sitting in the front seat of my jeep, but often complains about having to carry my basket that I carry my work stuff in. He will actually tell me I should keep it in the back so he doesn’t have to always hold it. It’s not like its heavy for him, but he is so interested in being a spirit who is living in the material world.
A few weeks back when I was driving home I asked Adam (my Door Man) if my dad was around because I wanted to talk to him. He said that my dad was unavailable at the moment. The next morning my dad showed up and was so excited to tell me he was working on being a Spirit Guide. I love that as I am teaching classes to people on this side of the veil about how to communicate with the Dead, there are people like my father on the other side learning how to communicate with the Living. Since that conversation with my father he has taken on the position of being my daughters “Door Man”. As anyone who has been to one of my Seances knows the “Door Man”, is the name I give to the guide who watches things from the other side. Helping to control traffic when spirit communication is going on, and keeping away any spirit that does not have good intentions. The term “Door Man” comes from my years of owning a bar. The doorman decides who can come in, who can pass their message from the door and who needs to just plain leave the premises. Along with being my daughters Door Man, my father spends a tremendous amount of time communicating with as much of his family as can hear him/see him, as well as trying hard for those who cannot. I love the zest and excitement he has for making this communication possible. I feel so blessed to have the luxury of knowing that my loved ones are there just behind the veil.
