An earthbound spirit is a deceased person’s soul whose energy lingers in the physical world and has not yet crossed over into the spiritual realm. Many reasons have been hypothesized about why these souls do not cross over. Films and television programs tend to popularize the belief that entities who stick around on the physical plane are there to wreak havoc on loved ones, people who have purchased property in which they inhabited or those who have disturbed their resting places. Some of these are fictional accounts and do not represent the whole story.
The common collective research about near-death experiences (NDEs) has been that when one dies and transitions to the spirit world, a bright, loving, light within a tunnel appears and the soul is guided through it and greeted by past loved ones or benevolent entities. Whether or not you believe this, you have most likely heard it. The transition is completed and the soul becomes a part of the spirit world. But how do you really know if a soul has successfully crossed over?
Theories exist that some souls do not transition to the other side in a picture-perfect way. Some researchers and psychic mediums believe that perhaps a soul might encounter obstacles to its transition. These so-called earthbound spirits may have something holding them back that will not allow them to rest in peace. Listed below are some possible explanations as to why a spirit might remain stuck in the physical realm.
Confusion — A person who experienced a bewildering, traumatic, sudden death by way of a car accident, act of war, murder, plane crash, or other unexpected means, might not cross over immediately because he/she does not comprehend his/her own death. It may take a long while for the perplexed individual to accept what has happened and to allow the transition to the spirit world.
Unfinished Business — Earthbound spirits may not want to cross over because they were unable to complete an important project prior to their death and they are fixated on seeing it through; they may want to make sure that their loved ones rightfully benefit from the inheritance due to them; they might feel they have to relay one final important message to someone; or they have a specific goal that they were robbed of completing while they were still alive.
Fear of the Unknown — People who had specific religious beliefs when they were alive might still harbor those beliefs as an earthbound spirit. They may actually fear the act of crossing over. They might be guilt-laden because of their earthly deeds and fear being judged too harshly. The fear of crossing over may also stem from the fear of encountering souls in the spirit world who have wronged them or encountering those souls who they had wronged in the physical world. There might also exist the fear that if they cross over their energy will not continue on.
Guilt — An earthbound spirit who has commit suicide or whose behavior contributed to the death (e.g., addiction problems) may experience overwhelming guilt at abruptly leaving behind loved ones — leaving them to fend for themselves and to dig their way out of possible financial debt or legal troubles.
Right a Wrong — Especially in the case of an individual has been murdered, the soul will make every effort to stay in the physical realm to reveal clues surrounding the mystery of his/her death, in the hopes that those who were involved will be brought to justice. A spirit might also be compelled to delay crossing over in order to help a loved one or friend uncover the truth or warn about a situation or an individual who has been unfaithful or whose motives have been unscrupulous in some way.
Loved Ones not Letting Go — Earthbound spirits are often kept from crossing over because the loved ones they have left behind have not been able to move forward or let go and accept the death. The living individuals have not learned to live without the deceased. The spirit becomes tied to those feelings, which overrides their ability to move on to the spirit world. The spirits become stuck and chained down to the physical realm.
In conclusion, at times, the spirits as well as the living need help to make the necessary transitions after death. Psychic mediums and those who are extremely sensitive to spirits have been quite successful in assisting and persuading these earthbound spirits to cross over. They have also been able to uncover the various reasons that may have been holding the spirits back from doing so. They have been able to ally their fears and enticed them to a better place and out of a state of limbo. This process does not always happen immediately. It may take quite some time and patience to achieve the desired outcome for all.

It is very important to know the different types of psychics and psychic readings that are available to you before you make a choice. Psychic readings are divided into two groups — structured and unstructured. A structured reading involves the use of divination tools such as tarot cards; the lines, bumps and markings on your palms, head and other parts of the body; rune stones; I-Ching coins; tea leaves; astrology birth charts; and numbers, to name a few, to give information and answers about your career, relationships and past, present and future events in your life. Some people who are not true psychic mediums do perform these readings and are extremely accurate and knowledgeable. And many courses are available that can teach you these different divinations; however, a more in-depth reading will be accomplished if given by an individual with true psychic abilities.
In an unstructured reading, the psychic medium relies on his or her psychic gifts to reveal information about your feelings, emotions and relationships. They also have the ability to connect with people who have passed, as well as with people who are currently playing an important role in your life. When getting this type of reading, it is usually best to have a specific question in mind or some past, present or future issues that need resolving. This is the highest form of psychic mediumship and is known as evidential psychic mediumship. The medium will be able to give you specific names, dates and details that only you or someone in your family would know. Also, some are able to read animals’ thoughts and connect with animals who have passed. Someone who is not truly a psychic medium will not be able to give an accurate unstructured reading.
Another type of psychic ability associated with an unstructured type of reading is that of a psychic/spiritual healer. The work of a psychic healer can be described as viewing a person through the psychic’s mind’s eye and looking at people’s energies with respect to their chakras, auras, physical organs and overall health. A psychic senses and identifies where someone’s energy needs unblocking. To do that, some psychic healers associate themselves with one or more guides, calling on their angels, spirit guides and a Divine power for assistance in their work. Because these assistants are not in the physical world, they can aid in obtaining a higher consciousness and ability, which helps the psychic to rebalance a person’s free-flowing energy and accelerate their healing.
Some people attribute the healing that may take place during a psychic healing session as merely a “placebo effect.” Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines the placebo effect as “the improvement in the condition of a patient that occurs in response to treatment but cannot be considered due to the specific treatment used.” In other words, if you believe you can be healed, the healing occurs. Psychic healers have healed many individuals and have done so without using conventional medical treatments. Whether the healing is a placebo effect or not, some documented results from these healings have been miraculous and unexplainable. Keep in mind that any psychic healings should be used in tandem with the current conventional medical options that are available for the specific ailment or disease.
Some common terms used to describe types of psychic abilities are clairalience (the ability to smell scents from the spirit world or from those who are not physically nearby); clairaudience (also known as “clear hearing,” the ability to hear words, sounds and voices from the spirit world); clairgustance (the ability to physically perceive tastes without tasting anything); clairsentience (the ability to sense or feel the presence of those who have passed or to sense the auras and vibrations of all living things); and finally, the most notable of the clairs, clairvoyance (also known as “clear seeing,” the ability to mentally see through the mind’s eye, spirits or people who have passed on. It also refers to the ability to obtain information about a person, place or event without the use of the five senses).
When choosing a psychic, do not be afraid to ask questions about the psychic’s abilities in advance of the reading, especially if you do not have a personal recommendation. Before you sit down with a psychic, remember the expression “Buyer Beware.” Unfortunately, as in every business, there are those who will take advantage of people that are showing any signs of desperation. You should be comfortable with your choice — trust your gut instincts. Some readings can be entertaining and some can be quite healing and comforting.
Through the investigative research efforts of Psychic Library, we have found that a large percentage of the structured readers we randomly contacted or visited were accurate in the use of their specialized divinations. Some of the readers had special psychic abilities and intuition that embellished and enhanced the readings the Psychic Library team received. However, the unstructured readers who were claiming to possess some form of psychic mediumship abilities did not deliver what they promised. In most cases, our expectations were not met. Instead of providing concrete evidence, these would-be psychic mediums were asking our team of researchers to give them information, even though they were in fact claiming to be in touch with the spirit world. For example, rather than giving information about one of the team members health problems, the psychic asked “do you have any health problems you want to discuss?” It seemed that for the most part, our team received cold readings and not true evidential psychic readings. Keep in mind, there are very qualified psychic mediums and intuitive counselors available to you. However, do try and seek out a psychic medium who has been recommended by someone you trust or who has had an accurate, helpful or healing reading.
Hopefully this gives you a better understanding of what to look for when contacting a psychic, whether it is online, at a psychic fair or a bookstore.

Individuals who have the ability to communicate with animals seem to be more commonplace today. Whether these people are called pet psychics, animal whisperers or animal communicators, they have one thing in common. They all use intuition, empathy and telepathy to receive information beyond the bark, growl, purr or hiss. In fact, there is much more to even a horse’s neighing or a sheep’s baa.
When “embarking” (excuse the pun) on this journey of understanding what the animals have to tell you, first look at what you already know. Most pets and animals are creatures of habit. If you give them a set time of day for walking, feeding or playing, most animals will be quite attentive or excited when these times are approaching. Pets understand their own internal clocks and follow the similar cycles that humans do.
So what can animals really tell you? Most animals and pets are concerned with three things — the here and now, the past and the immediate future. They communicate these concerns either physically or through telepathy. Telepathy, a form of extrasensory perception (ESP), is the direct communication between two living beings on a level that is void of written or verbal communication or the use of the five senses. One being is considered the “sender” or “transmitter,” and the other is the “receiver.” Telepathy can occur between animals, between humans, and between animals and humans on three levels:
1. Physical – sensations of hunger, pain or illness occurring spontaneously.
2. Mental – communication and visualization occurring without language.
3. Emotional – feeling different levels of depression, excitement or fear, without explanation.
Telepathic information is usually received through imagery or visualization. During pet communication, visualization techniques will be most important. This type of communication will take patience and practice.
Many people who own pets seem to possess some form of knowing what their pets want or are possibly thinking. How many times have you reassured your pets that you will be returning, just as you are about to leave the house? Have you ever noticed that when you are not feeling well, your pets stay close to you while recuperating?
Pets and animals have so much to tell! They are aware of even the slightest changes. The phrase “out of the mouths of babes” perfectly describes their innocence. Their thoughts are keener than we give them credit for. It’s like when a kindergartener comes home from school and can’t wait to tell you everything that happened that day.
Each animal’s personality is unique. Some are extremely sensitive, while others are very conceited. They are specific about their likes and dislikes. They have great memories and remember many details that we might have forgotten. In fact, they are aware of even the slightest change occurring in their owners or surroundings. They are vigilant protectors. Your pets are bursting to share themselves with you and love you unconditionally. Even if an animal or pet may have had a past that was a bit dark or scary — they truly ARE willing to share that past with you. All you have to do is listen.
LEARN HOW TO COMMUNICATE
As with any type of telepathic communication, quieting your mind is important. Begin by observing the animal and try to visualize the thoughts that come into your mind. Remember that you need to disregard any imagined thoughts. Animals will communicate using images, motions and short visual stories. You will need to do the same when using your mind to communicate with them.
It is best if you start the communication with your own pet. To do this, lie quietly next to your pet. If it is a dog, start thinking about the leash you use to walk him. Focus on the leash as if you were getting ready to grab it to go for a walk. Keep transmitting that image in your mind. After some time, watch and see if the dog becomes excited — as if he knew he was going to be taken out. You may also want to try this exercise thinking about your pet’s favorite toy. He just might bring the toy to you for some play time. This is a good test to see if the dog is picking up your telepathic message. Be patient, this may take several tries.
Now, keeping in mind that you need to be relaxed and quiet, try to pick up on the dog’s feelings, emotions and images. Again, lie or sit close to your pet on the ground. Let your mind wander away from any wishful images or visions about your pet. See if in you can get a picture in your mind of something the two of you had done together in the past. Also be aware of your own feelings, and observe if any new emotions pop up. This may be the beginning of how to get an impression of what your dog is feeling.
Another good way to test your ability to communicate with animals is to visit someone you know who has perhaps just adopted or rescued a pet. This is key because there are certain facts about the dog’s previous surroundings that you have no prior knowledge of. Ask the owners to let you try out your communication skills and to hold back any information that they have on the dog’s past from you.
Most likely, the pet will greet you with some excitement. He will probably be just as curious about you as you are about him. Let things calm down. Once you feel that you and the pet are ready to communicate, practice the same calming techniques you used with your own pet. See if you are getting images, words or short scenarios in your head. If you don’t get anything right away, avoid playing a guessing game. However, if you feel strongly about the messages you are getting, ask the owners if these things mean anything to them about their pet. If you are accurate about what had previously taken place with their pet, they will be very surprised and you will know that your intuition is working and that you are telepathically communicating. Keep going. You may want to start asking the pet some questions mentally. See what answers you get.
Developing skills with any type of psychic abilities will take practice and grooming. Everyone has his or her own techniques. Find out which ones work for you. After some time, receiving messages and communicating with animals will definitely become quicker and easier.

After a loved one passes away, whether having suffered from a long illness or suddenly, we are totally grief stricken. At this time, we realize that final arrangements for a funeral or memorial service need to be made. During the process of saying goodbye to our loved ones, we try to make the ceremony special and honor their wishes. Many times people do little things, such as placing a personal memento next to the body or talking about and remembering special events that took place while they were alive.
I recently gave a reading to a woman who was referred to me by a friend. She was curious to know if she was receiving messages from her recently deceased brother. As I began her reading, many of her deceased loved ones started to communicate with her from the other side. Specific names were revealed to me, so I was sure we had made a connection. Her brother started to come through and he validated things that had taken place and wanted her to know that he was aware of her actions. As the reading began to wind down, I asked her about a blue object that was at the funeral. I asked her “What was the blue all about? Something that was put near him in blue?” She told me that he loved the University of Michigan and Duke University and that he wore Michigan team clothing all the time. I then stated that he was buried in a blue Michigan shirt. She said yes, he was.
So, even the smallest things that we do to honor our loved ones do not go unnoticed. Our loved ones from the other side are grateful for everything. Even their belongings that we continue to cherish, such as a piece of jewelry, picture or medal, are reminders that they are still loved and never forgotten and can serve as a link to open a connection with them on the other side.

Donnie Tash, a psychotherapist, was a reluctant psychic. Emerging from a coma after surgical complications he had abilities he had never had before. Much to his own surprise, he was able to communicate with those who have crossed over to the other side as well as communicate with animals. He is currently a co-founder of the website psychiclibrary.com, which is an interactive and educational site dedicated to the psychic/metaphysical realm. The goal of the site is to present all of this information in an understandable and down-to-earth way. The site offers first-hand and unique insights about the afterlife from his experiences as a psychic medium, among other things. We will talk about his fascinating life change, his work with the psychic library as well as his work with both people and animals. I met him at a holistic health gathering and for the first time in the ten year history of the gathering, animals were present and simply led their owners to Donnie’s booth. I watched it as it happened. I have a cat with a very bad habit of using the spot under the piano instead of the litter box which Donnie knew about before I met him.
