Janice Carlson is a medium and author whom we met a number of years ago through novelist Carole Nelson Douglas. Janice was looking for authors to blurb her book and in exchange, she would do a reading. Carole referred her to us.
As I recall, she did a reading on our golden retriever, Jessie, who had died several weeks earlier. During a trip to Minneapolis several years later, we had dinner with Janice and her husband and spent several pleasant hours talking about the paranormal. Janice has (finally!) written a book about how to communicate with loved ones who have passed on. I asked her to write up something about it so we could post it here.
Having done professional afterlife-communication sessions for clients for over 20 years, I’ve learned that one of the greatest blocks to recognizing visitation from our deceased loved ones is shrugging them off as coincidences. This is really ironic, given that coincidence and synchronicity are central to the language of the dead.
In my latest book, SOUL SENSING: How to Communicate With Your Dead Loved Ones, I provide an exhaustive list of the signs of visitation from our friends, relatives and pets on the Other Side. Then I explain the barriers to afterlife communications and how to overcome them.
The most common of these barriers is to assume it’s just your imagination playing tricks on you whenever you witness a sign of visitation or receive a message from a dead loved one. But running neck and neck with the “it’s only my imagination” block is the “that was just a coincidence” excuse. I’ve run across so many so-called coincidences in two decades of working as a medium that I can’t possibly view them as anything but significant. They range from something as simple as a meaningful song coming on the radio, just as you were thinking about a dead loved one with whom you associate that particular tune to a long-lost belonging of a deceased relative or friend suddenly turning up in some unlikely way.
For instance, one of my clients was stunned to come across a vintage boat her recently deceased husband had sold five years earlier to a man who lived hundreds of miles away. Another, when thinking of her long-dead father, was completely dumbstruck when a second cousin arrived at her doorstep unannounced with a toy model of a plane her fighter-pilot dad had flown during the Second World War!
To write off such amazing experiences as nothing more than coincidences is to miss some of the greatest gifts those on the Other Side give us. Rob & Trish MacGregor knew this when they wrote their must-read book SYNCHRONICITY AND THE OTHER SIDE. But synchronicity is just the beginning when it comes to afterlife communications. SOUL SENSING is filled with ways to send and receive messages from the dead. It will not only help you get in touch with your passed loved ones and pets, but stay in touch with them.
