Learn To See, Hear & Feel Your Loved Ones In Spirit Without Being A Medium-Michelle Skaletski-Boyd NEW!
by Bob Olson, (founder of OfSpirit.com Magazine, BestPsychicMediums.com & BestPsychicDirectory.com)

If you’re just getting to know my work, I’ve been testing psychics and mediums since 1999 and writing about my best experiences on BestPsychicMediums.com. On that site you’ll find my recommended list. It all started when my father passed and I began using my skills as a private investigator (my career at that time) to investigate the afterlife. From there I began researching mediums, then psychics, then all sorts of spiritual practitioners in order to find answers.  

Today I share only my most remarkable experiences so that people like you can have life-changing sessions with these same people. However, my standards for what is extraordinary have risen a great deal, so I don’t write as many articles anymore. For this reason, when I do, you know that the session must have been something truly out of this world to get my attention and lead me to write about it. Consequently, this experience I’ve detailed for you below is exactly that.

If Heaven Was a Corporation
by Tom T. Moore

Imagine for a minute if heaven was an international corporation. Then we would be able to explain a lot of misconceptions people have. 

First we would have a brilliant CEO (Creative Executive Officer) such as Steve Jobs, whose creations and innovations are different from all the other corporations. He would be loved by all his millions of employees, who couldn’t wait to work for him and applied immediately for whatever jobs he needed to be done. Having started the corporation from scratch, naturally he could do all the jobs himself; but because he loved his employees so much, he wanted them to have the privilege of doing the jobs themselves and thereby learning and growing in experience.

A Trip Down the Rabbit Hole 
by Michele Marie Tate 

I'll never forget that day we got the news that my son had died in a car accident. The gut-wrenching howl that echoed from my throat sounded like a wounded animals cry. A wave of anger, pain, and disbelief overwhelmed me with the vengeance of an avalanche, crushing the life force within me.

What I didn't know then, was the surface of this pain had only been scratched and the journey ahead would be the hardest road I'd ever walked. Only now, seventeen years later, can I look back and reflect on how I survived this tragedy and personally changed through the lessons learned.

"Hereafter" Movie Review: Special Thanks To Clint Eastwood, Matt Damon, Peter Morgan & Steven Spielberg For Getting It Right

My wife, Melissa, and I saw the movie Hereafter this past weekend and I must say we loved it. I’ll even admit that we saw it a second time the next night, which is entirely out of character for us. But there’s something about this movie that inspired us to want to see it again.

by Steve Taylor  

The basics of the near-death experience (or NDE) are probably familiar to most readers of this article already. Many people who clinically die for a short time - when their breathing and their hearts have stopped and their brains have shown no electric activity - find that their consciousness continues. They undergo an incredibly blissful and exhilarating experience, which is so powerful that they may not actually want to return to life and perhaps even be angry with the doctors who have resuscitated them.

Stillborn and Stillhere
by Diana Gardner-Williams  

We arrived at our favorite mountain cabin Christmas Eve 2003. This particular accommodation provides a kitchenette, loft, cable TV, and indoor Jacuzzi tub. The back deck overlooks a steep, wooded hill with a pleasantly loud, rushing creek barely visible through the trees. The evergreen shrubs flanking the entrance of the cabin were twinkling with multicolor lights and a holiday mug filled with candy was centered on our kitchen table welcoming us. Since we usually spent Christmas with our family, we were unaware of the charming decorations provided by the owners at this time of year. So why are we here? The fact that our beautiful baby boy was born quiet and still has brought us to the cabin in the mountains. This is where we would spend our first Christmas without our baby.

Spiritual Awakening and the Near-Death Experience
by Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

When the mind closes down and the senses are stilled, mystics describe the sudden effulgence of pure light illuminating consciousness, accompanied by a flood of joy. After this experience, called enlightenment, illumination, or oneness with the Divine, people feel a happiness so unlike and above any other that they try to reach out to those still in the darkness we call everyday life. But enlightenment is not just for the saints, yogis and lamas who achieve it. It can come to any of us at any time-- at the time of death, in a deep and life-changing dream, or in a supreme awakening in meditation. And it is within the reach of us all. We have only to want it and ask for it. As Hamlet says, “The readiness is all.”

Beyond Knowing: Mysteries and Messages of Death and Life from a Forensic Pathologist

Hopes & Dreams: A Critical Ingredient In The Lives Of Caregivers And Their Loved Ones

It’s human nature to hang onto two basic hopes – the hope of overcoming illness and the hope of delaying death. However, in many cases the reality is that your loved one faces a steady medical decline, a life-threatening illness or impending death.

Finding a Happy “Medium”-- One Teen’s Quest for Spirituality in Modern America
by Philip Devitt

When my parents were my age, talking horses, nose-twitching witches and belly-baring genies were all the rage on television. The networks were brimming with supernatural-themed programs. “Casper” showed the nation that ghosts could be friendly. “The Twilight Zone” demonstrated their darker side. And “The Ghost & Mrs. Muir” proved that they could be just plain annoying. It seemed that nearly every time a mortal communed with the great beyond, it was a formula for success.

Dear Laura,
I recently lost my teenage son to an overdose and have dozens of 'what if I did this or that' come to my mind. I belong to the Compassionate Friends support group for parents who have lost a child and I hear that phrase over and over. What insight can you give us parents who have lost a child and try to blame ourselves when we shouldn't?

My True Home

My name is Andy Harley. I'm 28 years-old and from Frederick, MD. As a small dedication to your nice site, I would like to share with you a poem that I've written about a near death experience.

My True Home

Drawn into tangible darkness,
Rushing high speed through a tunnel.
I'm somewhere between two worlds
Spiraling like water through a funnel.

My Mom: When A Medium Loses a Loved One
by Rita Berkowitz

This time, it was my mother lying there in the hospital bed getting ready to make her transition. But, I am a medium, so why am I so sad. I knew about the higher side of life. I knew that she would be going to a better place, free of pain. Yet my pain was excruciating. I was still aware of my abilities to see both sides of life. I found myself truly experiencing a cross between grief and the curiosity of wanting to see what would actually happen as my own loved one, my mother, made her transition to the Higher Side of life.

Stories Of Reincarnation 
by Jenny Smedley


What does reincarnation mean? There are many belief systems based around the theory that when our physical bodies die, our souls do not end, or go to be judged by a harsh God, but that instead we are reborn in another body, to learn more lessons. Jesus did endorse this belief. ‘Souls are poured from one into another of different kinds of bodies of the world’ (Jesus – Gnostics. The Gnostics are scriptures that were unearthed accidentally in 1945 by a peasant digging for fertilizer at a place in the Egyptian desert called Nag Hammadi. There were fifty-two separate text written in Coptic, an ancient language translated from the Greek, some of which may have been composed a generation before the first gospel was authored in AD 70.)

A Tribute To Steve: Grieving The Loss Of A Pet
by Dr. Trish Whynot

As a counselor, I know the importance of taking the time necessary to grieve. When I realized that Steve, our cat of 17 years, was preparing us for his departure from the planet, I took some time off to be with my feelings. They fluctuated from sadness to fear, anger to regret, and I gave myself permission to feel them all.

The Out-of-Body Experience
by David Lindsay

Numerous surveys and anecdotal studies report that people all over the world are having lucid experiences outside their physical bodies. The out-of-body experience, also known as astral travel or astral projection, is a natural phenomenon that everyone experiences nightly during sleep, although very few ever become aware of it. Despite being so little understood, it offers unrivalled potential as a vehicle for us to obtain answers to fundamental existential questions such as: what happens when we die, what is our purpose in life, and what is the meaning of existence?

Ask Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #15)
by Laura Scott

 

Dear Laura,
My lover died a little over two years ago. I would be ok with never dating again because I am still so in love with E., however, to get my children and my friends off my back about "going on with my life" I agreed to go out with R. R. is like the perfect mate (for someone else) and he is aware that I will never love him because of E. I apologize to E. daily for cheating on him. R. is getting extremely attached and I don't want to break his heart. Now what?? How do I break it off with R., or should I? If I do, I go back to harassment about "getting over" E. Quite frankly, I enjoy the sex with R. and I can tolerate his presence on a limited basis. I am perfectly aware that I am using him (I go through guilt about that daily). Bottom line - Use R., make him happy, my family satisfied or go back to living for the dead? Both options seem wrong.

Reincarnating Pets
by Nedda Wittels


It is always sad when a beloved animal family member leaves their body and goes into spirit. We call this death, but truly, no one dies. The physical body drops away as the spirit separates from it and goes into another dimension. The spirit is the being that we truly love, although we may be attached to the physical aspect that we associated with that being. Since we are still in physical, we often miss the sight, touch and smell of our friend and we grieve this loss, which is appropriate.

I'm asking this question with the supposition that we make pre-birth agreements and choose our existences. What could be the point to such disease and destruction?

A Day In The Heart Of Pain: What Would It Be Like To Awaken To A Day With Our Hearts Open To Our Pain?

What would it be like to approach the mean habit of rejecting our pain, which turns it into suffering, with mercy and awareness? When we are no longer mesmerized by our wounds or making a religion of the pain by which we so often define ourselves, we stop running for our lives.

What Really Happened
by Janis Amatuzio, M.D.

In my practice as a forensic pathologist and County Coroner, my job is to explain a death, “What Happened” to family members, police, and the courts when necessary. To arrive at the truth, I teach my death investigators the distinction between making observations as opposed to rushing to judgment.  “Things are not always as they seem,” I say. “Gather information, document the scene, follow the guidelines, and trust that you will arrive at the truth.”

The Reincarnation Of Paul Gauguin?
by Michelle Moshay

Peter Teekamp is an artist and near-death experiencer living in Washington state who accidentally discovered a drawing that might be worth millions of dollars. He believes the drawing to be an original artwork by the famous 19th century post-impressionist artist Paul Gauguin. He discovered the drawing hanging on the wall of a restaurant which he visited by pure chance. Coincidentally, Teekamp happened to be writing a book about Gauguin at the time. Having studied Gauguin for many years, Teekamp knew a Gauguin when he saw one. Eventually he bought the drawing from its owner for $5,000. After further examination and an ugly court battle with its previous owner, Teekamp gathered evidence to support the claim that it is indeed an original Gauguin. Forensic experts are needed to prove the age of the drawing and examine the evidence.

The Power Of The Words We Use 
by Keith Zang

The spoken word is a form of energy that can be very powerful. This power can be used for the good of all, the detriment of many, or as useless background noise that is barely heard. Often times the words we use in interacting with others holds more power than we realize. It is important when interacting with others, especially if we are on a spiritual path, to focus our energies on creating positive words to help encourage others, or as helpful advice to aid in healing emotional traumas. In doing so we will help to spread a positive ness that can have a much greater impact on others than we initially perceive. Such a situation occurred with me, who's impact stretched through years, eventually reconnecting to the spiritual realms.

I look forward to getting readings to connect to my loved one and understand that it is not good to have this dependency.

When Family Members Are Reacting
Differently To The Loss Of Your Pet

by Susan Dunn

The loss of a family companion animal is difficult, and my heart goes out to you. We come to love our animals and feel a deep sense of loss when they die. Some people tell me they’ve felt more grief over the loss of their dog than of any human being in their life.  It’s not always recognized by others, but those would only be people who have not lost an animal companion they loved. Or I should say, who loved them. They give us the unconditional love that helps us thrive.

The Day I Died

The happiest day of my life was the day I died. I was three years old and living in Richmond, Indiana. It was a sunny day and my dad decided to take me fishing. We went to a nearby river and my dad chose a spot next to a small bridge where he cast his line and relaxed into a folding lawn chair on the riverbank.

Good Grief: Seeing Grief As A Sacred Space, part 2
by Laura Scott

In one of my last articles I wrote on the subject of grief and loss. I was preparing myself, as if one ever could, for the loss of my beloved friend. Miraculously, unbelievably, joyously, I was blessed that he stayed on the earth plane enjoying life through summer and fall. He left his frail body very recently and made his transition home to The Other Side. It was a very beautiful and moving journey, including his transition day when time seemed frozen still. I was so very blessed to be right by his side for it. I am still in the process of grieving and acknowledging all the wondrous gifts of shared moments and lessons that his life brought me. Although a part of me would like to curl up and take many weeks and months to heal and be still - life just isn't prepared to let me do that.

The Grief And Belief Connection

"Grief is healing: To take away our grief is to take away our healing. And learning about life after death helps us heal with greater hope, comfort and peace."  ~  Bob Olson

In approximately five years of investigating the possibility of life after death, I have discovered convincing evidence that there really is an afterlife, that we really do continue to exist after death, and that our loved ones continue to watch over us and guide us in the spirit world. But this is just the beginning of my discoveries.

Dear Laura,

I have been having marriage problems for some time now but can't seem to pluck up enough courage to walk out, mostly because I'm worried of where my future lies. Since having these troubles I've spoken to a medium, had a tarot reading and participated on a ouija board looking for answers. I was told by the medium and through the ouija board that an ex boyfriend was going to be coming back into my life and that we would eventually marry. At this point of time though it seems an absolute impossibility as we live on opposite sides of the world...

Thank You, Ruth Harper, And Goodbye
by Bob Olson

A recent newspaper article featured a story about a woman who was hit by a car and died. It was a hit-and-run accident that occurred just up the street from my home. Although we didn’t know the seventy-five-year-old woman, my wife, Melissa, and I could not help but to feel deeply disturbed by the news of her death. Let me explain why...

A couple years ago while I was driving down my street, I saw this same woman walking her dog. Her back was to me, but as soon as she heard my car, she turned and waved "hello." Hesitantly, I waved back—I was afraid she would realize I was someone she did not know and think I was strange waving back at her. But in the time I thought about it, she was far behind me.

Grieving The Loss Of A Loved One
by Kathleen Tucci

When faced with the task of mourning a treasured loved one, a profound measure of strength and will takes over. There are so many variables and plethora of situations involved when it comes to the death of an individual. What is key in this huge sea of despair and confusion is that physical death is not the end. That your loved one’s soul still permeates this earth and is around you in spirit. Many times I hear the phrase spoken; “dead is dead”. It’s interesting to note that in my line of work, I’ve found often-time that those individuals who were skeptical and possessed that analogy of death, are the ones who as spirits, will try the hardest to communicate to their loved ones still in the physical world. Why?...because they now realize they are not dead! That life is eternal and goes on after we leave our physical bodies.

The Passing
by Rita Louise, ND

It was December 30, and just two days after the big snow storm that blanketed the entire Pacific Northwest. I found myself sitting quietly in front of my computer catching up on the never ending pile of work that lay waiting before me. In the midst of my work, I heard a loud noise coming from the street, looked up from my computer and saw a fire truck driving down the quiet little dead end  street and into the cul-de-sac at the end. At the time I didn't thing anything unusual about this, with the snow, flooding and downed power lines, I assumed that someone on the cul-de-sac had some kind of problem.  With one glance, my curiosity somewhat aroused, I ignored it.

Dream Communication From The Other Side?
by Bob Olson, OfSpirit.com Editor

Did you know that dreams are a common means of communication from our spirit-guides and/or loved-ones who have crossed-over? It’s true. Too often we shrug off these meaningful messages from the spirit world as being mere foolish dreams. Yet it is one of the easiest ways for deceased loved-ones and spirit-guides to convey messages to us. In many cases, we will actually see the face or feel the presence of the spirit visiting us in the dream. And in most cases, they will provide us with an important message.

Transformation
by Nancy Wright

Dad fell. He slipped on some gravel in a parking lot while getting out of his car on his way to get a haircut. It was an hour before a passerby found him lying helpless on the cold ground that early April morning. "Hey, buddy, can you give me a hand? I cant get up!" Dad cried. The stranger saw the pain my father was in and called an ambulance. Dad had broken his shoulder in three places and suffered a compression fracture in his lower back. He was 81, widowed after his wife passed away from cancer 15 months earlier.

Dad died. In a flash. During the few seconds the nurse left him sitting up in his chair while she went to get his medication. I had no warning except for a very restless night's sleep the night before he died. That night I kept seeing him, felt I was in his room and that I was comforting him with his anxiety. Maybe in my sleep I helped him prepare for death.

Boston's Best-Kept Secret Reveals
Tangible Evidence Of An Afterlife: Spirit Artist & Psychic Medium, Rita Berkowitz
by Bob Olson, Editor of OfSpirit.com

In case you haven’t been paying attention to all the media hype, there are people in this world who can communicate with spirits from the other side. They are called psychic mediums, or what I prefer to describe as “spirit messengers.” Whatever you prefer to call them, these spiritually gifted folks actually can see dead people—just like in the movie The Sixth Sense (although it is not at all scary the way Hollywood portrayed it).

The Psychic Medium Who Got Ten Times More Positive Reviews Than Over 400 Psychics & Mediums—Cheryl Anne McGill
by Bob Olson, Editor

I am honored with the privilege to tell you about a psychic medium whom I know you are going to love. Her name is Cheryl Anne McGill. And there is an interesting story about how I discovered this latest addition to my personal list of recommended psychic mediums, otherwise known as my “Genuine & Legitimate Psychic Mediums” list. It’s a story that says a lot about the character of this woman who is so extraordinarily gifted.

I first became aware of Cheryl Anne a little over a year ago when she was approved for my online resource called BestPsychicDirectory.com (which is not the same as my BestPsychicMEDIUMS.com resource). Although this new directory was NOT intended to list the psychic mediums whom I PERSONALLY recommend (like the website you are on now), I founded that directory so that the public could leave reviews about the psychic mediums who gave them THEIR best readings.

If Angels Could Guide Us Directly, Psychic Medium Jennifer Farmer Reveals What They’d Say
by Bob Olson, Editor

If you are new to my websites, you might not know that I was once a steadfast skeptic when it came to psychics and mediums. I was skeptical about pretty much anything related to the paranormal. I certainly didn’t believe that anyone had the ability to read our energy, as psychics claim. And, like most people ten years ago, I had no idea that anyone even claimed to communicate with spirits. It wasn’t until 1999 that I stumbled upon my first psychic medium and my entire world changed.

Second Sight
The Beginnings of Wisdom
by Judith Orloff

I am large ... I contain multitudes.
-WALT WHITMAN

It was 3:00 A.M., the summer of 1968. A magical southern California night. I was sixteen years old and had spent the weekend partying at a friend's house in Santa Monica, oblivious to my exhaustion. The soft, warm Santa Anas whipped through the eucalyptus trees, blowing tumbleweeds down deserted city streets. These winds were seductive, unsettling, conveying a slight edge of danger.

The Power Of Reiki
by Donna Patrican

Reiki is a Japanese word which loosely translates to mean the transfer of universal energy. This transfer can be to another person, animal, plant, situation or even to oneself. Traditional Reiki healing originated in Japan approximately two centuries ago, after Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered the ancient formulas in Buddhist Sanskrit scriptures for this hands-on healing art...

The River: A Journey to the Source of HIV and AIDS
by Edward Hooper
 

Let us take a moment in time. Let us freeze it. Let us watch as the crystals form, as it becomes translucent. Let us mount it on a slide and lift it carefully to the microscope stand. Using strong light and mirrors, adjusting the focus, let us see what can be seen.

When A Loved One Is Lost
by Linda Marks

Deep and meaningful relationships are a gift from the divine. While we may feel varying degrees of closeness or estrangement with our blood relations, there is a primal connection that is broken when a family member dies. When relationships end, short of physical death, a deep psychic loss takes place, sometimes more painful than death.

Death Be Not Feared!
Comforting Insight For The Suffering, Grieving And Dying
by Bob Olson, OfSpirit.com Editor

I believe that we can alter our life today simply by learning not to fear death. And by fearing death less we discover that we live life more! Shakespeare comments on this in Julius Caesar: “It seems to me most strange that men should fear; seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.”

Disappearing Act
by Michael Rawls

He sat there in his room at the Franciscan Care Center, watching television, Wimbledon doubles with those sisters tromping their opponents. He was wearing his work shirt and pants, gray in color, with his name embroidered above the pocket. We walked in, greeted him and sat down to visit. We discussed things that were happening in our lives, in the lives of people he knew, things going on in his community. We asked about his health, and learned what he was going through.

Handling Your Fears
by Alina Ruigrok

Fear is a feeling that too often runs our lives. Whether it is fear of commitment, rejection, failure, death, flying, or any other phobia, it tends to keep us from living our lives to the fullest. Fear can be handled rationally and can be controlled if you are willing to work on it and are motivated enough in controlling it, instead of it controlling you.

Ask Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #4)
by Laura Scott

Dear Laura,
I will be moving out of the state I presently live in soon, however my house in this state has not sold yet, and my husband has offered to stay here until it is.  My major concern is that I do not feel he will be joining me when the house sells.  For two years we have had problems since I found out he cheated on me.  We are supposedly trying to work our problems out, but, I get the impression, that he does not really want to.  I'm desperately afraid he will cheat again, and doesn't really love me at all.  I am very confused, and don't know where to turn.  What are your thoughts on this?

My Heart To Yours
by Lyndsey Watson

"Honey, if you die first will you please contact me when you get to wherever you go next?" About two years ago this question sparked a lively discussion between me and my late husband, Larkin. Each of us had our own unique belief system created by our life experiences. We shared them fully that day and very completely disagreed on the subjects of life after death and especially of "spirit communication".

The Game Of Life And Death
by Asoka Selvarajah

It is often said in spiritual teachings that the world is an illusion, suffering is unreal, and that Good and Evil are dualistic fantasies. Doubtless, this is all well and good. Yet, how do we reconcile this with the fact that all of this seems very real indeed to the vast majority of us?

As Above, So Below 
by Alan Seale

My friend Dorothy died on Sunday afternoon after a very long and challenging illness. When the call came that evening, I heard the news with such relief.  She was finally released from a body that had presented her with major challenges for most of her 62 years. While sad that our many years of crazy adventures were really over, I felt such a lightness in my heart knowing her new-found freedom.

Seeing Grief As A Sacred Space, part 1
by Laura Scott, Psychic, Spiritual Teacher and Channel for Healing

One of my beloved friends is getting ready to leave his body, and transition to The Other Side. It is a sacred time that permeates the rest of 'daily life ', and creates a natural space for reflection and sharing. You see, folks often forget that no psychic or medium is exempt from the challenges of living life. We don't get a 'pass' card when it comes to dealing with the tough stuff. Just like your car mechanic can still have car trouble, your plumber can have bad pipes in their  house, or for that matter, your Doctor—who is neither exempt, nor excused, from any of life's illnesses or dis-eases. Like all of you, that means when someone I love prepares to leave the earth plane, I grieve.

We Are Eternal: What the Spirits Tell Me About Life After Death
by Robert Brown

Whether I'm in New Zealand, Europe, the United States, India, or any country that I have visited, whenever it comes to the question-and-answer times after my readings, I can virtually guarantee that one of the first questions I'll be asked is, "When did you first become aware of spirit? When did you first realize that you had psychic gifts?" I can guarantee that this is the same question most mediums are asked. This question is invariably followed by, "Why you?"

The Stages Of Enlightenment: One Man's Belief
by Bob Olson, OfSpirit.com Editor

Many people have asked me what I know about the stages of enlightenment. My first answer is that I know nothing; nobody really knows until we cross-over. But I will share with you my belief.

I believe that we are all energy beams that reach out from the Source, the light and love of God, like rays of light that reach out from the sun. When we first leave the Source, we are blank slates, eager to have experiences that will teach us all there is to know. At first, our energy is low and dense because we are new and inexperienced. As we have experiences that teach us universal wisdom, our energy vibration (our frequency) increases. And slowly, after many lives and many experiences, our vibration slowly increases so that we work our way back to the Source—the One with the highest vibration.

Hans Holzer is a real Ghost Buster. The author of multiple books on the topic of disembodied spirits - those that know they are dead and those that don't (ghosts) - Holzer has had amazing experiences testing the existence of ghosts and helping many of them "go home" when they get trapped in between the worlds. Obviously, his experience of things that go bump in the night transcends popular images of Casper and Halloween haunting.
