We never really go away.

abstract_animals_man_star_galaxy_water_light_1440x900_hd-wallpaper-402569Everyone has a different theory on what happens after you pass on. Because I have obviously not yet passed on, I also have my own theory. I, as a psychic, only see glimmers of the afterlife through foggy windows, but from what I have seen – everything you thought (in a positive sense) is all true. It is what you need it to be. Physically you “cease to exist”, but you live on through your energy. You go to a place in which you feel you deserve. No one can tell you where you go, only you can determine it. That is why you must always be good to yourself. Give yourself a break now and again.

The best way I have heard it described was in the lyrics of a song by Atmosphere, a Minneapolis, Minnesota based hip-hop band. Yes, I am about to quote a hip-hop band when referring to life and death, just roll with it. The lyrics go, “A soul is a soul, and a shell is a shell, the boarder in between is full of everything you’ve felt.”

The interpretation that I found in these words are your soul is one thing, and your shell (meaning, your body) is another thing entirely. The only thing they have in common is a shared experience in your existence. Other than that, they are separate things. Once the shell (body) is shed, the soul goes on to other things, other lives, other experiences, and other forms of learning.

Think of the dandelion; it blooms big and full of color, but its seeds inside remain protected and growing until the very end. That is when the flower opens and allows the seeds to immerge and float away.  Think of the fluffy seeds being carried away in the wind as a representation of your soul. What happens to the flower when all of the seeds have floated away? The flower dies and becomes a part of the earth again, nourishing the soil for the next batch of flowers to bloom. It is just the cycle of life. We grow, we nourish our soul, once that job is done, we release it to go forth onto more soul nourishing experiences.

Now, the second part of the lyrics, “The boarder in between is full of everything you’ve felt.” That is the substance. That is what I mean by, ‘the only thing they [the shell and the soul] have in common is a shared experience in your existence’. Your existence is the very thing that connected the physical with the intangible. Isn’t that a beautiful thing? You should feel proud of yourself for being what you are. Your life, no matter how grand or simple, matters to the universe. Your soul grows with every life it leads, which means that you mean everything. Some people may, to the contrary, say that it could also mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, but I choose to go with “everything”. Without you…what would there be? An absence. No growth, no life, and no beauty. And you are beautiful.

That being said, you never really go away.

Is your loved one that has passed on still with you?

– Yes. They will always be with you. They may not be right next to you at all times, you may feel them around you sometimes and not so much in other times, but they are still there. If you asked them to be there for you when you needed them, they would be there, without a doubt. That little bit of hope that sits in the base of your stomach like a matchstick stubbornly staying lit. That is them. That is your loved ones. They protect your hope, even from you sometimes.

“Why don’t they show themselves when I ask them to come?”

– Well, if you were wanting someone to talk to, they are there listening already. They do not need to be seen for them to hear you. Also, souls are pure energy, they expel so much energy to make themselves seen to the average person (aka not a sensitive). That is why you may only see them when there is a life or death situation.

Unneeded Validation

pug_galaxy__wallpaper_by_skywarita-d82krz9One of the greatest bits of advice I have been given over the years in regards to my psychic abilities is to never expect your information to be validated. It is humorous that I completely forgot who told me this advice, specifically. I do know it was a well-known psychic, but I cannot for the life of me remember which one.

I have had people obsess over researching what I and other psychics have said in sessions. They check local records, land ownership paperwork, genealogy information, and court records. They want so badly to find some minute detail proving what the psychic said was true.

That is fine, do what you like, but in my opinion – it doesn’t seem worth it. You either believe or you don’t. All you are doing is trying to find faults in something that was never meant to be an exact science.

The reason I say this is because I had a family member growing up that was a bit obsessed with validating any information received from spirits. Whether it was received by me or another psychic, it didn’t matter. This person visited them compulsively, what a joy it was for them to find one resided in their very own family! After every session they would tirelessly research, compiling anything that sounded remotely close. After all that work, they never seemed satisfied with their findings, so they would bring it to me for validation or excitement – But I never gave a damn what they found. My indifference would drive this person crazy. I finally had to sit them down and say that I didn’t need my information validated, I believe in it, it just was. They asked me how I could be so certain, “When you see spirits every day, all your life, you learn to just except what/who they are, and the messages they give.” The family member was so baffled by this, they sat back thinking hard, then turned to me seemingly impressed with what I had said. They patted me on the shoulder and said condescendingly, “That’s it, you stick to it. It is good to show that you have confidence.” …sigh…

I get it, I really do. They needed that connection to the tangible, if you don’t see it every day of course you need some form or another to visualize the results.

For me, it is a matter of confidence. If I do not believe in myself and the messages I receive, then what is the point of receiving them?

So – my advice? When going to visit a psychic, try to be open minded and really sit down and think about the purpose of this sessions. For example, why have you decided to go to a psychic?

Here is some food for thought, to help you save some money;

  • Do you genuinely want to hear the message, even if it is hard?
    – Like I said, go in open-minded, take what messages you hear and understand that those were what was meant for you at this time. Sometimes the things you need to hear aren’t always easy to hear.
  • Do you feel guilty for something that happened between you and the deceased?
    – Guilt, when it comes to the deceased, is futile and will only hurt you in the long run. Let yourself have a break, you are only human.
  • Is there something you hope to accomplish in your session?
    – Leave your expectations at the door. Nine times out of ten, the thing you want to hear is not what you will hear when talking to your passed loved one. Chances are, if you had a good relationship with them, that is all that they will remember.
  • Are you a skeptic and want to test a person’s abilities?
    – Stop. Don’t be rude. We don’t come into your home and test your knowledge on how the TV’s inner workings give you the images and information you receive. We don’t sit you down in your private sanctuary and question whether or not the flickering lights on the Computer screen is real or if it’s some figment of your imagination.
  • Do you want someone to talk to about death because everyone in your life is weird-ed out by it?
    – Come on in, we can talk all you want. Curiosity is a good thing. I am open minded, I am a safe and private environment to talk about these things. But the moment the conversation turns depressed or suicidal, I will urge you to go talk to a professional. Helping you is my number one priority.

I hope this helped you in some way. Feel free to ask me any questions you like about the process and I will do my best to describe things to you.

“Hey Joe!”

spacecat-wallpaper-1280x768What I see on a day-to-day basis varies. As I have gotten older and have more control over what I feel and how I feel things, it seems as though spirits come to me easily these days. My feelings are far less manic and therefore the control of it gives me a better understanding of when I should trust what I see.

Driving is hard for me, not the act of driving or even the concentration; it is the fact that when I am, I have myself wide open in order to sense possible issues. I focus on patterns of everyone’s driving. That allows me to have a certain kind of focus to stimulate a part of my brain. I believe it bypasses overthought and links straight into unquestioned instinctual intuition. That being said, I see everything. It opens a door that doesn’t just allow one or two things in, it allows everything. Spirits standing on the side of the road, shadows, orbs, outlines of figures, spirits moving across the road, echoes of energies long past that resemble historic times, feeling the emotions of the drivers in other cars, passengers staring out windows with minds wondering on things they think no one can hear. Oh, but I can. I hear it and I hear you.

Sometimes I drive down the street and see a spirit – it sees me noticing it – and it may even sense that I feel bad for ‘running it over’, even though we all know that isn’t exactly possible. You kind of need a physical body to be physically run over. Purely noticing its existence made it capable of seeing me. Several times the spirit simply hops into the car with me and starts a conversation. The common first response is, “Wait, you can see me?” But because it generally is a hypothetical question, the conversation moves past that quite quickly. I simply say ‘Yes’, and that is enough of an answer for them.

You see, that is a reason I love spirits, they don’t need to see your credentials, degrees, or certificates. They don’t care what gender you are (most of the time). They don’t need proof, or validity of your abilities, they don’t really care how you “learned” to talk to them. They are lonely, they just want to talk to anyone. That is why ‘yes’ is so quickly dismissed, and ‘you can see me?’ is a silly thing to ask.

Once a spirit approached me in a Staples. No shit, a friggn Staples. He was sitting on a floor display of an office desk. He was young, so I assumed he was a friend of one of the many younger teens working in that particular store. He followed me around for a bit but noticed I had no time to talk so he politely left me alone. Some just want that validation, that they are seen. Isn’t that all of us though? Don’t we all just ultimately want to be seen?

There is a spirit that hangs out in the parking lot of my school. He always hangs out right under the street lamp next to the entrance. I say ‘good evening’ to him every time I go to class, I make a point to park next to his light if I can, just so that I can interact with him. It is like checking up on a good friend. “Hey, Joe! How goes it?” His name is not actually Joe, and even though I say hello to him every time, he never responds, but I don’t care. He deserves a kind word.

I never expect the spirits to respond to me if I say anything; they are like any one of us really. Would you be open to pouring your whole life story out to a stranger on the street? No, I didn’t think so. It is ultimately about intent. You say something nice to someone to be kind, not to get praise in return.

It took years of saying hello to Parking-Lot-Street-Lamp-Joe for him to even notice my existence.

Be kind to spirits if you are lucky enough to see them, they are raw emotion and energy, they deserve respect like everyone else.

My Purpose Here


Good morning and welcome!

This is my first blog ever! I know, shocking, right? In this day-in-age how is that even possible? Well, it is.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Elise. I am a psychic (specific description in profile). I feel everything and know many things, and I have never really gotten the hang of explaining it, so let’s just skip that part for now and go with a bit of faith.

  • In this blog I am hoping to accomplish a few things:
  • Help people to understand what living with these abilities are like.
  • Help people to recognize what is a “real” psychic and what is a “fake” psychic.
  • Give you insight into the complexities of being a psychic.
  • Help you to understand the frustrations of knowing too much.
  • To learn from others, especially the perceptions of this ability to others. – How to better myself in order to give more helpful information.

It may seem a bit vague, but trust me we will get deep into all this with time.

The reason I am starting this blog is because I have yet to find people who truly see from my point of view. Some have come close, but none see the complexity of these visions and the ripple effect they produce. Some have potential, but refuse to exercise their skills, in turn allowing them to fade away until they are useless. Others insist they have abilities, but after a few simple questions it is quite obvious that they do not. After many years of searching, I came to the conclusion that I may be the only one. If I am not the only one, maybe others are fearful of being seen as “crazy” or “wrong”. Well, I am here to tell you that you are not crazy or wrong, you are smart and wonderful. You were put here for a purpose, whether to change the world for the better or maybe just to be a muse to the person who will. Either way, each role is just as important. Helping others is the only thing in my life I have ever wanted to do. This blog is my step toward that goal.
