We can all con­tact loved ones: psy­chic

Sunday Mail - - NEWS - CATHER­INE LAM­BERT

JOHN Ed­ward says he com­mu­ni­cates with the dead many times a day – and claims we all have the same ca­pac­ity.

“Spir­its talk to all of us,” Ed­ward told the Sun­day Mail. “They make their pres­ence known and we miss it. One of my goals is to get peo­ple to know.”

The Amer­i­can says signs in­clude a dream, a feather ap­pear­ing or a song sud­denly play­ing on the ra­dio that had mean­ing to the per­son who has died.

Some­times, he claims, you can just feel the pres­ence of the per­son or even smell them through a strong, dis­tinc­tive odour. There may even be sym­bols that ap­pear that have mean­ing to you.

“Their pres­ence is felt more strongly when you need them be­cause they are more con­nected them,” Ed­ward said.

“Most peo­ple don’t recog­nise them as much dur­ing good times. They are just as present then be­cause they want to make their pres­ence felt in pos­i­tive times such as fam­ily oc­ca­sions.

“You know you have 1000 peo­ple in your phone book. You have their num­bers. You know how to con­nect with them.

“It’s just the same for spir­its. They have our GPS code on a spirit level and they con­nect with us via that. It’s about recog­nis­ing the sub­tleties.”

Ed­ward re­calls a time when he was driv­ing along a high­way in the US in the mid­dle of a snow storm when the scent of freshly cut roses filled the en­tire car.

“It was mixed with tea rose per­fume which my grand­mother used to wear so that was very pow­er­ful,” he says.

While spir­its may re­main close to peo­ple on Earth they were strongly con­nected to, Ed­ward said it was im­pos­si­ble to in­ter­fere with their spir­i­tual jour­ney. In­ter­fer­ence could hap­pen while they were still liv­ing but once a per­son had died, it was their choice to re­main nearby.

“We have access to spir­its 24/7 and can call them but I don’t think we can hold them back once they have tran­si­tioned be­cause our en­ergy isn’t pow­er­ful enough,” he said.

“We can hold them back while they’re tran­si­tion­ing, though, if they’re ill or sick. We have to pre­pare them to go and al­low our­selves to be a con­duit.

“You can’t drop your kid off at school and stand at the win­dow cry­ing. Once they make that tran­si­tion, we can’t hold them back.

“It’s my be­lief we go where the bonds of love are and I be­lieve we will all con­nect again – pets in­cluded.”
