Dear Bonnie: I was at your recent book signing of your book “Ask the Medium Next Door” at Barnes and Noble and I loved meeting you. I have been following you on social media and I love your column it has given me so much insight into the spiritual world and why we are here having this experience.
I am trying to figure out what kind of spiritual gift I have. Ever since I was 16, I have recalled a woman always whispering my name as if she is trying to get my attention. I was afraid then and would not answer her, and I would try to block her from my mind. I am older now and through the years, have had many more experiences. There was one instance where I was looking into a mirror in our entryway in our home as I was doing my hair, and I saw a woman that looked like she was from the 1800s based on what she was wearing and her hairstyle. As I looked directly at her, she disappeared.
Another instance, I saw what appeared to be a woman walking towards me; she had an eternal white light glowing from the white clothing that she was wearing. I watched her as she walked into my mothers’ room. At first, I thought it was my mom, but then my mom was asleep on the couch when I ran into the living room. I quickly realized I had seen a spirit.
At my family restaurant where I work, I have seen shadows running by even a woman singing a song. I also can see images of past lives as I blink, and the images flit across my eyes. Clear as day, I can see a vision of a video or picture.
I do not want to sound crazy but would like your opinion of what could be happening. I need to find out what this is and what to do with these visions I am seeing. Thanks, Kate
Dear Kate: Thank You Kate for your kind words as I really do appreciate them and thank you for coming to my book signing.
As I read your story it sounds just like my childhood. Seeing clearly into the spirit world and being able to see spirits and even past lives are known as clairvoyance or clear seeing. You described exactly how some people with clairvoyance see into the spirit world. Some mediums see videos playing like little movies that they watch inside their minds and then relay what the person in the spirit world was trying to get across to their client by watching those videos. Some see objects, sometimes one object right after another, and can put a story together with those images.
The story of the visitor glowing in white, which you thought was your mom sounds almost like an experience I had happen to me. I was lying in bed one night while I was young and still living at home when I saw a woman standing in the doorway of my bedroom and I started to yell mom, mom, mom but the lady who I thought was my mom didn’t answer, but soon my mom came in and asked Bonnie why are you yelling? Thinking back, the figure looked so much like my mom because I realized it was my grandmother in spirit watching over me. Your lady might be your grandmother or even a guide or angel. When the spirit world knows you can see them, the experience starts to happen more and often.
It truly is a gift to see the spirit world as it provides proof that life is eternal, and we are a part of the bigger picture. That is why we also can sometimes see past lives as well. A great way to get in touch with our past lives and to make visions stronger is to do meditations and ask the spirit world to show you what you need to know.
I love my gift of seeing, and I hope you genuinely use your gift to help yourself and others in your lifetime. Enjoy and embrace your gifts of clear seeing and clear hearing (like hearing the women singing) because it truly is a gift. To learn more, find a teacher or mentor that can help you develop your gifts. When you know more about developing the gifts you have, you will also learn how to control when and where they happen.
