Halloween has a hollow ring this year for this professional medium. The
exploitation of ghosts – souls who are stuck in their death transition,
usually because of trauma – seems to have reached all-time lows. “Our
hotel’s ghosts” are being paraded as historic relics, or as prey you
should pay a “ghost hunter” to track for your entertainment. My partner
Peter MacGill and I have helped hundreds of souls complete their
de-incarnations in our space clearings, and the quality most useful in
our being able to sense ghosts is empathy. No fancy dancy electronic
equipment is needed. They respond to us because we care about them.
We’re not there to gawk, like a crowd gathered around the scene of a
tragic accident without helping!
I love Halloween fun – masquerading an alter ego for an evening. It’s
healthy to create drama and laugh about things that frighten us,
including death. It seems to me we’re as a society facing the death of
our no longer viable lifestyles based on overconsumption, resource
wars, and disconnect from nature. Many of us are fighting the letting
go part of the natural cycle of life, almost as if demanding “our right
to not die” to old ways of being. Perhaps this denial of death is why
we treat our ghosts so poorly.
Our website at www.weness.org is loaded with information about ghosts,
death, and the natural cycle. This season of year when the veils are
thinnest can be a magical time to explore death in life-enhancing ways.
