The Chain-Smoking, Kitchen-Pacing Spirit Messenger
Fascinating insights gained after discovering a second legitimate medium.
Many moons ago, while investigating the afterlife, I decided to get a reading with a second medium. Up to this point, I had been testing a medium named Sally for about eighteen months to determine what was possible with mediumship. A holistic practitioner had given me the name of another medium named Joe, so I called him.
Joe answered the phone, and I began to introduce myself. That’s when Joe interrupted, “Wait, what’s your name again?”
“Bob Olson,” I said.
“Has your father passed, Bob?”
“Yes, my father has passed.”
“Well, he’s here with me now, and he was coming through last night during a group session I gave at my home. He kept giving me your name, but no one could claim it when I asked the group if anyone knew a Bob Olson. Now I understand why I was getting it. Your father knew you’d be calling this morning and wanted me to pay attention to it.”
I laughed. “I don’t know how my father knew I’d be calling you, especially last night. I didn’t know I would call you until this morning.”
“People in the spirit world can see a little into the future,” explained Joe. “Your father knew you’d be calling. He has an important message for you, but I’m with clients right now, so I’ll call you in two or three days, okay?”
“Um, okay,” is all I could say before Joe said, “Bye,” and hung up.
I must have had a peculiar look as my jaw dropped due to the shock of what Joe had just done.
It wasn’t that I was shocked that my father came through. I was no longer surprised by spirit communication. It was that Joe told me my father had an “important” message for me and then said he wouldn’t call me back for two or three days. Many people in that situation would have freaked.
What’s the important message my father’s spirit has for me? Am I dying? Is someone I know going to die? Am I in danger? Is someone I know in danger?
Those are a few possible thoughts that might go through a person’s mind after hearing that their dead father is trying to get an important message to them.
A psychic once told me that, like most people, he’d say goodbye to people leaving his house by adding, “Drive safe.” For the rest of us, our friends take that as a thoughtful statement. But if you’re a psychic or medium, people get nervous and ask, “Drive safe? Why? What do you know?”
I got off the phone and walked into the office to tell Melissa what had occurred. Her immediate reaction was one of concern. “What do you think the important message is?” After a few seconds passed, she added, “What do you mean we have to wait two or three days?!”
