So Many Ghosts

  • Andy (death by hanging)
  • Carlos (sports)
  • William (connection to “coast”)
  • Bob (beat to death)
  • A Japanese gentleman
  • A gentleman who spoke old English (probably British Old English. Had confusion about my gender, and said Thee and Thou)

These were the ones that worked very hard to get my attention – or what is commonly known as a haunting.

  • Turning the water on and off – repeatedly — while I stood at the sink.
  • A container of almond milk thrown to the floor.
  • The two of the pictures in the master bedroom tilted every morning (they never did this before).
  • A man yelling in despair and anguish (I bolted out of the bedroom thinking my husband got hurt. He was confused – and then amused – and was just fine).
  • Then everyone talking — all of them – at the same time.

I called for a time out. I set up two GhostRadar TM apps, in two different parts of the house, and told them to “give your name, and any message, one at a time and in an orderly fashion!” Then I left the room.

When I came back, I was shocked at the word list generated. Some names were given, some were not, and they all certainly had a lot to say (though most of it made no sense to me).

Sitting down, I asked them to once again, in an orderly fashion, tell me why there were so many ghosts in my house.

First came the emotions of fear, confusion and the feeling of being directionless. Some were just desperate to be heard.

After the deluge began to slow, I told them where to go outside and that I would “meet” them out there. I closed my eyes and “joined” them.

I gave my usual pre-crossing over, informational talk about:

  • how we each judge ourselves and create our own heaven or hell
  • how they can see a loved one – human, animal or other – in the column of light to guide them onward
  • going into the light.

I was hit with another wave of fear. I was a bit bumfuzzled; it usually doesn’t go this way.

And More Ghosts

I looked around and saw perhaps one to two hundred ghosts, male and female – who appeared to be from a wide span across the human linear time line; all were milling around and staying away from the column of light.

I called on my team. “Why are there so many ghosts here? You (my team) are supposed to filter the ones who have contact with me.”

Their response was, “These are the ones we filtered.”

Oh. “Why is no one crossing over?”

They explained that, since the Closed Loop System has been destroyed, they aren’t sure where to go; their choices increased, but the new was unknown.

Do they stay Earthbound
To stay a ghost. Not of our dimension (like they were when they were in a physical body), but still connected and/or attached to the emotions, concerns, etc. from this dimension.

Go into the white light (reincarnation, old system)
“Crossing over”. Leaving this dimension’s energy; going into the light; healing, objectively reviewing the human life experience one just stepped out of; planning and preparing to seek balance with others and to reincarnate. This is the old way or old system which had been connected to or tied to the Closed Loop System. Since reincarnation is no longer a must, and karma is not only being worked on almost instantly, but can also be worked on energetically without reincarnating, then this system is out dated. It doesn’t make it wrong.

This is the unknown. This is why I had so many scared, confused and concerned ghosts on hand. They did not understand what this “new” was; though it really isn’t new, but is very ancient. This pre-dates our souls becoming entwined with the third dimension, physical, tactile, “man-made”, human experience.

It is the I AM. It is all there is. It is the prime Source. The Creator.

So if karma (re-balancing) is basically instant (as per each individual’s energy), and reincarnation is not necessary – where do we (and the ghosties) go or do when the physical bodysuit has expired?

What To Do?

We go home.

Our real home.

Our non-Earth home.

I can’t tell you where each being originated from – but once you are no longer attached to the physical, you need only listen/feel within and then you’ll be able to reconnect with the original, non-Earth, part of you.

It will lead you home.

And there are many waiting for your long awaited return home.

It is My Hope

Usually I include something along the lines of, “These are my beliefs, experiences, understandings and if this doesn’t fit you, please disregard or throw it out the window.”

But this time, I don’t want to say it. It is my hope that this article has “poked the bear”; that it has made you question your Earth-based belief systems and question what you had previously accepted as “truth”. I hope it makes you take a close look at self and that you find out if you look – deep inside – you can find the real truth – regardless if it matches mine or not.

Mass Exodus Response Team

My condolences to those whose lives were lost in this tragedy and to those whose lives were changed by the loss of loved ones.

This article:

  • Talks about death and may be disturbing to some.
  • Is in response to many Lightworkers experiences before, during and after the recent plane crash. Because we are becoming more sensitive to energy, and energy fluctuations, many may have had a more intense experience this time.

My apologies to any who may feel offended, or feel that I am being insensitive – that is not my intent. I also know that all are whole and well, even though they are no longer on the physical level.


The Mass Exodus Response Team (MERT) is comprised of Lightworkers who will respond – on an energetic level – before, during and after a mass exodus.

A mass exodus – for the purpose of this article – is an accident, incident or event where a large number of humans lose their physical life. Some examples may be a plane crash, train crash, explosions, fires, etc.

There are many energy/soul roles, but the following is my understanding and/or interpretation of my role as MERT responder. I will try to provide an generalized overall picture.

Prior to an Accident

When an accident is coming up, the MERT is dispatched, for lack of a better term, as a practice run with the souls who will be involved in the accident.

While I don’t have all of the answers, I can share what I have “seen” or “experienced”.

MERT meets up – on an energetic level – with those who will be involved in the event/accident.

We do a walk-through practice prior to the actual incident; this is everyone can learn about where they can go and what they can do during and after the event.

No one is ever forced to work with us – though I have no memory of anyone refusing to work with us.

Immediately before the actual accident, the souls leave their bodies. They are not in their bodies when the event occurs.

Once the accident has happened, and one’s physical body dies, the cord that had been connecting the soul to the body is severed. The soul is free of the body.

The soul is then encouraged to go to a centralized meeting place (again, not on the physical level) along with the others who perished in the accident. This is kind of like spiritual triage; checking everyone out, helping them where needed.

Those who carry trauma will be guided to a MERT responder with knowledge and ability to aid that being though their trauma.

There are also MERT responders who answer questions and/or guide the being to another who can help.

One of my roles is to aid those who are ready to cross over. Oftentimes there is a deceased family member, friend and/or pet standing by to greet them and guide them to the other side (cross over).

MERT responders stay until each being has decided on what they want to do.

MERT Responders on the Physical Level

What happens to the MERT responders physical bodies while they are working energetically?

We go into automatic-mode, or auto-pilot. We only leave enough of our essence (soul/energy) in our body to carry on…usually leave only the bare minimum here.

We seem/feel disconnected, distracted and/or have a sense of vague-ness. This can happen about twenty-four hours before an event and continue through until everyone has been aided through the event and moved on as per each individual’s decision.

The Inside View

Physically, for me:

  • I don’t feel “all here”
  • I don’t get into anything requiring my full attention or energy
  • The day of the event is a blur or foggy – I may not remember a lot about that day.

When my job is done for that event, I am suddenly physically alert. For example, I snapped back in around 11am (mountain time) yesterday following the airplane crash. I was tired, but my focus was once again able to be on the physical.

Questions and Answers

Q. So why doesn’t MERT stop the event from happening?

A. Again, I don’t have all of the answers, but I do know that we are not allowed to stop the event from happening.

When I was younger, I used to “see” upcoming mass exodus incidents before they happened, but I wasn’t allowed to change or alter anything.

I became so distressed that I told my team to quit showing me things that I couldn’t help or change.

Now, I know when I am preparing, doing a walk-through and aiding after the event, but usually don’t consciously know what the event was until I am “back” and it has already happened.

Q. Are all MERT responders consciously aware of being MERT?

A. No. Many may know that they have occasional periods of not being totally “with it” or not being “all there”, but not why. That is one of the reasons for this article.

Q. Is every Lightworker a member of MERT?

A. No, though each Lightworker does have more than one role in this lifetime – both physical and non-physical roles.

There are also various non-physical roles – acting both singularly or in groups – that Lightworkers participate in. One that was previously touched on briefly was that of the White Knights.

Another example would be those on a team that do stop tragedies from occurring.

Some singular (one being) redirects. These could be one lone survivor of a mass event, or a single redirect from an event, for example someone missed their connecting train or flight, or was hung up in traffic, etc.

There is also mass redirects; the oncoming accident, by some miracle, was diverted at the last moment.

Q. What about the people left behind here? Those who lose loved ones?

A. We each have specialty guides that come in and out of our life as we need them. There are grief guides who will offer support, love and be with those grieving. The person grieving may not feel, or know, that they are near – but they are there and will remain to aid and support.

Again, my condolences to those who lost loved ones.

Book Review – The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan

Review by Linda Aragon

A True Story

This engaging story is about the sudden death of the author’s brother and his communications that began soon after.    Is this yet another book about afterlife communication? Well, yes and no…

Billy was a heroin addict and an alcoholic, in and out of rehabs, not what one would think of as a super star in the game of life.

Billy communicates joy, happiness, and a very intact sense of humor.  A deep love for his sister who stood by him when it seemed all others had lost faith in him.

Soul Contract – yes!  They had contracted to write this book!

Is Billy a younger soul?  No, quite the opposite.  Here is where Billy conveys a very important message.  This particular life was but an “experience” for him, just as all of our lives are…some rich, some financially challenged, some married, some not, with children, without, some in good health, others challenged in many ways, and some male, female, different races, different sexual orientations, and so forth…Experience is the key word here.  We come here to experience.

I often say be so very careful not to judge, you do not know another’s path.  Whereas a soul may look like the “bad guy”, perhaps he is playing a role for others to learn, grow, and evolve. Soul contracts are made from the other side with a much better understanding of circumstances that offer one’s soul the opportunity to grow and evolve.  Lessons come from experience.  Not from books, not from relatives, not from churches…from experience. Billy gives a supreme example here, of why we should not judge.

Perhaps the most unique feature that differentiates this book from the many others that are written about the afterlife,  is Billy’s very detailed description of what happens to souls as they reach the end of the cycle of reincarnation on Earth.  What happens to a soul who has completed their Earthly lives?   First he realizes he is still Billy, he still exists but as a soul.  The veil of forgetfulness is lifted and everything becomes clear.  Billy does indeed go through the “Life Review” so often spoke of in books about the afterlife.  He describes a sense of floating, intense colors, incredible music, becoming one with the Universe, a sense of joy and love simply beyond words to convey the intensity of the experience.  As he completes this process, Billy then describes a number of higher beings who appear and guide him and help prepare to “let the memories go in as far as any attachments” and his now unembodied soul is propelled to “enter the Void”.  He describes a blazing whiteness.  He is going on to another Universe.

Before he goes, he leaves us this message:  His words are detailed, in part:

“Life is a Divine mysterious impulse to be tasted and then released.  I took on form to enter time.  I entered time to partake in creation.  Since my destination is no longer the earthly realms, I will now enter the great Void and travel beyond time. I am becoming the Allness in the Nothing.  I am also Everything,  I am the Universe, I am the Light. I am the Grace, I am the Truth, I am the Play, I am the Player. The Scenery, the Director, and the Audience”.

The Matthew Book Series

by Linda Aragon

“THE MATTHEW BOOKS” – (Series of 4 books) written by Suzanne Ward.

As an avid reader with a passion for Spiritual Studies, I have quite an extensive library.  I conduct Spiritual Meetings and Study Groups, Classes, Talks, etc. on an ongoing basis.  One of the “Perks” I offer is to lend out any book, free of charge on a sign out basis, two week check out period. And yes, I will lend you these books!

I am often asked – with all the reading and studying I do, what books would I highly recommend.  There are so many good books out there which have absolutely fast forwarded my spiritual journey.  Still, I have my favorites and ones that really hit home for me…today I am going to tell you about a set of books that really moved me and somehow struck a core within me that said “Yes, I remember this to be the truth” – When something inside of us sings out this way, I take it as a message for us to incorporate the learnings into our life.

Among the top of my recommended reading list are the “Matthew Books” by Suzanne Ward.  Yes, four of them.  Sounds like a lot of reading but I assure you – absolutely delightful, don’t want this book to end type of reading.

The series starts with:

Matthew, Tell Me About Heaven: A Matthew Book
–  ISBN 978-0738840925.

In 1980 17-yr old Matthew was driving home after a full day’s work. He veered and crashed and there seemed no apparent reason for the accident.  Matthew died in the arms of his rescuers.

Fourteen years later:  A series of telepathic conversations begin between Matthew and his Mother, Suzanne.  Susanne’s never-ending questions are patiently responded to by Matthew and he clears up common misconceptions about the world where he lives (he says it’s proper name is Nivana).  He speaks about the truth of our beginnings and our relationship with all of creation, for the purpose of understanding the ‘purpose of our lives’.  Among the topics he discusses are Reception of Souls, Relationships, Animals, Children, Angels and Spirit Guides, Near Death Experiences, Education, Music, Etheric Bodies, Lifeprint Review, Emotions, The Effects of Prayer and much more.  The dialog between Matthew and his Mother, done in question and answer format, can be seen as an instruction manual that can rescue the human race – just in time.  Written in simple English, very easy to understand and follow, and certainly fascinating reading!

The follow up books continue the story and communication:

Revelations for a New Era: Keys to Restoring Paradise on Earth
– ISBN 978-0971787520

Learn about Souls and Energy. How thoughts create everything within it!  The origin of human life on Earth, Mind Control, what is behind 9/11 and Advanced Civilizations.

Illuminations for a New Era: Understanding These Turbulent Times
–  ISBN 978-0971787537.

Tells who we are and the purpose of our multiple lifetimes.  Read about Earth’s ascension process; how we create our reality and how prayer works.

Voices of the Universe: Your Voice Affects the Universe Let It Be With Love
–  ISBN 978-0971787544.

Earth souls in Nirvana, our ET family.  Synchronicity in life experiences and the influence of the Illuminati.  Prepare for Earth’s restoration and our roles in this transition.

Yes, there is a lot of information here.  During my study of these works, there were many instances where a sense of “remembering” came forth, not to mention a few hair raising episodes.  Times where I could not sit still, the resonance was so strong. I believe, the time you would invest in these readings will fast forward your spiritual studies tenfold, as it did mine.

The Matthew channelings continue today, I receive these about once a month.

Talking to Heaven by James Van Praagh

Talking to Heaven: A Medium’s Message of Life After Death by James Van Praagh. © 1997, Dutton. ISBN 0-525-94268-8.

Van Praagh began with some of his childhood and young adulthood experiences and continued on to explain about mediums and different type of mediumistic abilities; guides; transitions; meditation and more.

James also provided some wonderful session examples as well as some “How To” exercises for the reader to try. He also delved into some of the behind the spiritual curtain scenes to help his clients, and the readers to understand what transpires when we cross over.

His session examples that he provided can give you a very good perspective on what may transpire in a medium reading.

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for beginners to advanced.



Earthbounds and Addictions

In  “Earthbounds”, I talked about types of earthbounds – those who had died, but didn’t cross over…they are still attached to Earth; they are just slightly out of sync with our dimension.

I want to delve a bit more into the earthbounds who have remained here because of an addiction.

Does this mean that everyone who has any type of addiction will not cross “into the Light”?

Absolutely not!

Staying earthbound is a choice! It is not a punishment; it is not just because a person had an addiction while they were physical.

Those with addictions who choose to remain earthbound usually do so to continue “hanging out” with those in the physical who are using the deceased’s preferred substance of choice, and they try to get their ‘fix’ or ‘high’ through a physical person’s substance abuse.

For example: Mr. X and Mr. Z had both been cocaine addicts and had died. Mr. X decided to not cross over; instead, he looked for the energy signature of another cocaine addict who was still living.

Let’s say he found Ms. Y, a cocaine addict. Mr. X will move his energy closer to Ms. Y, entering her energy field, to absorb the emanations that Ms. Y exudes while she is getting high; Mr. X chose to seek out the energy of an addict instead of moving into the Light.

Mr. Z, who was also an addict who had died, looked for and saw the bright white Light (or tunnel, etc.) and perhaps saw some deceased loved ones and/or guides awaiting his arrival. Mr. Z chose to cross over and may have been pleased to be free of his addiction. He chose to let the addiction go.

For Those of You Who Have an Addiction

Speaking as one of us who can ‘see’ – when you abuse drugs and/or alcohol, you emit a drug/alcohol specific energy pattern, and you call to you some of those earthbound addicts. Your energy field – instead of being smooth and steady – has holes, like a slice of swiss cheese; this allows unwelcomed and/or unwanted energies to enter your energy field and to attach to you. I see them as “leeches”.

Earthbounds cannot be forced to cross over (because of free will) – on the other hand, they are violating your free will by attaching themselves to you while “encouraging” you to continue your addiction.

This is not an excuse, or an “out” from taking responsibility for your own actions!

You can have the attachments removed (or you remove them)…but, the next time you partake of substance abuse, the attachment pattern repeats.

By getting – and staying – clean and having the attachments removed, your energy will have the chance to begin re-stabilizing (barring mental/physical imbalances).

Your choice.
