Hello Dianne

Thanks for your question, which offers an easy answer. The answer is all wrapped around one thing – fear!! We all have insecurities, phobias and fears, but once we grasp knowledge, they evaporate, like particles of ice in the full rays of the sun...

One question has a simple answer: what is a ghost. Well if you have seen the ‘form’ of a person from the next dimension, you may call them a ghost. The words ‘ghost’ is simply a word. From the dictionary described as: “The soul of a dead person, a disembodied spirit imagined, usually as a vague, shadowy or evanescent form, as wandering among or haunting living persons”. But if what you see is a person, then your fears are only raised by either you see shadowy shapes because you vision is impaired, or because your mind is influenced by lack of knowledge.

There is too much talk nowadays about ghosts, ghouls, spectres and things that go bump in the night. It really is all ridiculous, though it keeps the paranormal fraternity busy, and for some people it helps, and motivates them to earn money. Reality is far simpler: there is nothing to fear except fear itself. You may find praying helps you, though opening your spirituality is the key to unfolding the totality of life. Like anything, the more you know, the more you accept and enjoy things; the same is for seeing our spiritual companions. They are not ghostly discarnate beings, they are people free from this world; fear only holds you back. Step forward from doubt and concern, and grasp the companionship of other travellers, who move through the mechanism of life, they in one dimension, and you in another – simplicity...

You mention dreams. Dreams, on the whole, are just thoughts held within the memory facet of the mind. Often a dream can appear distorted or odd, for we only hold a small part of the picture and sensation of a dream. Dreams are a function within the interaction of the ‘Two-Worlds’, a pleasant experience for many including myself. If sleep is a taste of physical death, we grasp its reality every night and we don’t fear going to sleep. This quote from the ‘Great Bard’ - William Shakespeare, may give a greater insight:

We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

The Tempest

You mention the words ‘natural medium’. I assume you are thinking about grasping the awareness of spiritual mediumship? If this is the case, and you get a ‘true spiritually inspired teacher’ who knows the simplicity of this discipline, then you will find your own answer. The words ‘natural medium’ are new phraseology, akin to today’s concepts; to me the words are confusing. Why you may ask; because I have seen many who are more unnatural to say the least. Again, I point to simplicity, for this is where the answers are all held.

I have placed another quotation from ‘William Shakespeare’. If you read it you will grasp what he means: in sleep we all taste death, but one day we will awaken in eternity. Your ghosts will be seen for what they are, people living within a society, free from the limitations of this world of matter.

In thought of enlightenment and knowledge

Stephen

Postscript - Thoughts on life and mortality...

To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.

Hamlet
