I cannot remember life without GHOSTS/SPIRITS... My interest began in the paranormal when I was 2...that's when my mom told me I first started talking about GHOSTS/SPIRITS. I grew up like most of you, learning that one shouldn't talk about the things they can see, hear and feel. Now, after years of ignoring these abilities and senses, I can no longer deny it. The TIME has come...

I made the vow
and kept my word
I reached enlightenmet
but rather than pass over
to the state of eternal bliss
I retained human form
till all beings attain enlightenment
Keeping human form
enabled me to know more deeply
the pain others experience
Because of my deep feelings
because of my understanding
of misery and suffering
because of my decision
I am called The Compassionate One
She Whose Name Alleviates All Suffering
But wouldn't you prefer to wait
feeling what others feel
suffering what others suffer
knowing their pain as your own
wait till the end of all suffering and pain
till all things attain enlightenment?

For me there was no other choice...
~Amy Sophia Marashinsky

Recently, I had the pleasure of reading the first of two books by author and internationally recognized MEDIUM JEFFREY WANDS! The title of the book is:

THE PSYCHIC IN YOU -Understand and Harness Your Psychic Power
with Tom Philbin
*Cover Photo on the Hardback Edition by Jim DeCaro

Jeffrey Wands
has appeared on The Maury Povich Show for several years now and hosts his own radio show The Breakfast Club from Long Island, New York (97.5 WALK FM). Currently, he has been busy with his book tour as seen on the Today! show, Extreme Make-Over House Edition, and his regular visits to The Maury Povich Show to name just a few of the events unfolding in his life.

Understand and Harness Your Natural Psychic Power

This book reads like you are sitting down to tea with Jeffrey himself (just as he did with his mentors The Aunts). In a way, it is sort of like having a cup of tea with all 3 of them...and let me say they are a MIGHTY 3.
Mighty, in the sheer magnitude of their concern for their fellow brothers and sisters that walk this Earth. PSYCHIC/MEDIUMS themselves, The Aunts took Jeffrey under their wing, recognizing the responsibility they had in helping him *change the world* one person, or spirit as it were, at a time.
Jeffrey shares those visits with The Aunts, and brings them to life. It's as if they are still here teaching through Jeffrey and we have the unique opportunity to learn from their wisdom.The 3 of them, Jeffrey and The Aunts, remind me of what the Buddhists call Boddhi-Sattvas...those souls that have the opportunity to enter the state of NIRVANA but instead choose to wait... and help every single soul attain that same enlightenment.
The Reluctant Psychic
Jeffrey describes what it was like for him growing up to recognize, accept, and develop his psychic abilities...He wasn't always ready and/or willing to accept his gifts,
"I had my first psychic visit from a dead person when I was seven and still living with my mom in Islip. I remember the visit clearly, which is not surprising since it scared the bejeebbers out of me."

As Jeffrey goes on to describe his phenomenal childhood experiences with the dead, he then teaches the reader that there is psychic ability in us ALL. He suggests that although people have psychic abilities to varying degrees, with meditation, prayer, and fun exercises in the book, he teaches us how to tap into our very own, sometimes dormant abilities.

At the end of each chapter of this 242 page book, he summarizes the *meat & potatoes* with something he playfully titled Deja Vu. By the time, you finish this book you will be ready for more!!!! Thankfully, Jeffrey's latest book is out and it's titled:
A Psychic Explains How Those in the World of Spirit Continue to Impact Our Lives

I am a little over a quarter through this latest book and it's as if Jeffrey just picks up right where he left off...It's a continuation of sorts. It's a journey through the Spirit World. I DO HOPE there are more books to come because this PSYCHIC/MEDIUM has a world of information to impart.
I can only thank him for his courage in coming forward in first accepting his Gift and then sharing with us ALL on such a broad scale.
Thank You Jeffrey,
From ME & the World of Spirit for being such a pure instrument!...
Book Review

Thursday, November 01, 2007



Many of you have followed my story of the physical paranormal phenomena occurring in my home over the last year and a half.
*For those of you that missed the story, just key in the word "haunting" and the back story should come up from the BLOGGER Search Engine.

In a recent BLOG entry, I mentioned the spirit of a man that looked like he was in his mid-twenties, brownish hair, and wearing a leather bomber jacket. Kind of a TOPGUN look from the 80's. I was uncertain if it was in my mind...
OR in my mind's eye??!!...

In the past year, I picked up a name for this spirit-person.
A friend sensed someone named Michael around me or coming to me in the future...
She had hoped this name she was getting would be attached to someone living...(cupid, lol...).
Indeed, this was the exact name I was getting...
But the gentleman was very much dead and seemingly a GHOST...
So, I just kind of let it go.

Internationally recognized MEDIUM Jeffrey Wands contacted me after reading my GV BLOG...
IN Jeffrey's message, he told me there was a spirit-man attached to me and his name...
What were the chances?
I had never written his name and only told my friend!
Needless to say, I was speechless. I felt very validated. Jeffrey Wands told me that Michael had died from a drug overdose and was confused...

So, feeling a sense of encouragement I *contacted Michael*...
I spoke to him out loud the same way you would speak to a friend. He communicated with me by impressing feelings, thoughts, and images into my mind's eye, so to speak. He was able to convey his deep sorrow for his death and crippling fear of what was just beyond the LIGHT. He was terrified that he was going to Purgatory. He felt that his overdose wold be viewed by GOD as SUICIDE and he was therefore terrified of the LIGHT. He was rather stubborn in his convictions. He put the image of himself walking thru the LIGHT only to fall off a cliff into an endless, dark abyss in my mind's eye.

It took me a good hour to convince him that GOD had already forgiven him...
The only person that needed to forgive him was...HIMSELF.
I tried to express to him that he had suffered long enough here on the ghostly plane. His response was...
"Well this is better than falling into nothingness!!!"

I asked him about the LIGHT...
Could he see it ALL this time I wondered??
He said that yes he could but would turn away from it. I asked him to PLEASE, PLEASE look into the LIGHT and see if he could see, hear, or sense any of his loved ones???

Finally, I got the sense that he was ready to "go for it"...
And at that very instant a RED ORB the size of a soccer ball appeared....
It then shifted colors from RED to PINK...changed shapes from a circle to a HEART...and then WHOOOSHH...right through the wall where the light switch is. The heart shape felt like it was a symbol...his way of saying THANK YOU. The change of colors from RED to PINK signifies to me the restlessness of his spirit shifting to a more calmed PINK.

I have waited to discuss this until a month or so passed...
I wanted to see if my bed would shake, etc...
So with JOY,
I am pleased to say that I believe my beloved bed-shaker, Michael has crossed over into
the LIGHT.
