How to Communicate with a Loved One Who Has Died

Communicate-with-Deceased-Loved-OnesDid a Loved One Die Suddenly?
Are there Things You Wished You Had Said?
Did You Part with Angry Words and Then They Died Suddenly?
Is there One More Thing You Want to Say?
Did You Have a Chance to Tell Them, “I Love You?”

One of the most heartbreaking experiences in life is losing a loved one. Many see it as the final good-bye. Well, it doesn’t have to be. If you believe in a Spirit world, know that your loved ones who have passed are as close as standing right next to you. Here is a helpful exercises to enable you to make contact. If you try to hard or are in a deep funk, it won’t work. If nothings seems to occur while doing this, shelve it, and come back at a later time. Eventually, the contact will happen. I suggest you journal what you experience.
You may want to record the steps first and then listen to it like a meditation.

Key Questions People Ask Me

I see famous people offering Mediumship and Psychic courses for very little cost. Because they are famous, are their courses better?

I have seen one or two of these courses. I even took one and enjoyed it. However, these courses are very very basic. They are a great introduction into a topic like, let’s say, Mediumship. The problem is the classes sell for quantity and are somewhat lacking. There is so much left out of the instruction process and many questions left unanswered. Also, there’s little chance for interaction and asking questions as one moves through the training. Carol is available to answers questions as students move through their courses. This is an invaluable resource! And, the student receives certification that is worth something.

Why are other distance learning programs so expensive? Is their training better?

From day one, my goal with Imagine Spirit was to offer quality classes and programs that are affordable to most. My goal was not to make tons of money, but to pass on to others what I’ve learned over thirty years time with the thousands of readings and sittings I have done. This is my passion and I now know that this is what I truly came into this lifetime to do. I am dedicated to sharing these experiences and expertise than less experienced practitioners can offer in their classes. IMAGINE SPIRITS WANTS OUR STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE AND SUCCEED!

Does everyone have the same abilities?

Thankfully no. Our own unique set of gifts and talents are for us to work with in a way that is comfortable for us. And, if you believe your abilities are not as good as someone else’s, for example TV show Mediums and Psychics, think again. These individuals have just been doing it longer–that’s all. You can be as accomplished as anyone else with the right training and the right teacher. Helping students learn what their current set of abilities are is one of the first things we do in either a Home Study Course or in other programs offered.

Are your training courses complicated or difficult to follow?

The answer is absolutely NO! Our classes, programs, and home study courses are easy to absorb and actually fun to learn with. We provide many learning tools and resources for the student to take advantage of. Our teachings are imparted in a practical down-to-earth approach combined with powerful esoteric knowledge and resources. In our home study courses, we include exercises and previous live class recordings to allow students to feel as though they are actually in a real live class. Many movies are available to view on YouTube and we also have an online FaceBook group that students can join and ask questions of others. Also, Carol is always available to personally answer questions! You are never alone in your studies!

Have you always wanted to be a Medium?

Actually no. As a youngster, I wanted to be an opera singer because I was blessed with an incredible voice. Mediumship called out to me. I didn’t try and pursue it in the beginning. When I first commenced my metaphysical studies, I started out wanting to be a professional psychic before Mediumship became a focus. Read my bio for more about…

Are you going to feature things about the Paranormal and Ghosts?

This answer is a resounding YES. I am working on transferring all my previous articles and paranormal audio clips to a new blog. One more reason to sign up for our newsletter to let you know when it’s available! There is going to be a lot of great stuff like the Ghost Quiz movie to the right!

How do you talk to Spirits? Have you ever seen one?

I am a Mental  Medium with a sprinkling of trance Mediumship. Therefore, I converse with spirits in my mind. I mentally ask questions and mentally receive answers or feelings and even see symbols which represent answers. This is usually only done when I am in session or training students.

The answer to your second question is, Yes. On several occasions I have seen spirits but not all the time like some people do. I have seen them look kind of flat in a 2-dimensional way or in black and white and have seen full-bodied colorized spirits that looked incredibly real.
