Tools for Everyday People to Communicate with Spirit ~ James Van Praagh

JAMES VAN PRAAGH: “Learn about the many tools that non-mediums like you and I can use to communicate with our loved ones in spirit. James Van Praagh and I had recently spent some time in person together, so this interview has a wonderfully casual feel to it. Together we chat about using card decks and books for spirit communication, as well as inspired writing, Ouija boards, pendulums, scrying mirrors, and even the practice of having conversations in your head with your loved ones in spirit. This is my 5th interview with James since 2011, and as usual he shares with us his wisdom, humor, and wealth of experience as a 30-year medium. I think you’ll really enjoy this video Conversation about spirit communication for everyday people.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV

      Hi Pamela,

      Don’t worry about what other people say. They are coming from fear. You come from love. Just continue to spread the love.

    Yesterday I used another Doreen Virtue’s angel tarot deck and sent thoughts to my wife. After meditating,I asked her three questions in my mind. How are you right now? Do you wait for me? Any other things to tell me?

    I got three cards ” You deserve the best ! Reach for the stars with your dreams and desires, and don’t compromise. ” “I bring you a message from your deceased loved one: I am happy at peace, and I love your very much. Please don’t worry about me. ” What do you desire right now? Visualize it, and it will come about. Negativity will block your process.”

    So amazing and comforted. And I will buy your book and Jame’s card. Your video helps me a lot . Thanks Bob.

    Hello Bob, another amazing interview with a quest I was very familiar with James Van Praagh…Have seen him on everything for years I have his books and we are friends on TWITTER <3 which is wonderful. I don't know him personally but something brought us together & I hope to meet him one day as I hope to meet you as well Bob! You are such a sweet heart in all you do. I have said it before that I know you got into this when your father passed I think it was in 1995 and I believe it is your father that put you on this path…lets say his gift to you to always remain connected with him & knowing it! You always mention your wife Melissa & how you are both involved & I too have a daughter Melissa & when we watch your program together she likes to hear her name … Anyway I have said for years now after John Edward Psychic Medium read me that I would never need another reading again…. My dad came through with messages which was wonderful it confirmed all the thoughts & feelings that I had had for years that he was with me….he left this world in 1980 I was just going to turn 10 years old in a few months, so the longing for confirmation was huge. But today after listening to how your dad came through to Melissa about how he loved her & thought of her as a daughter…so that made me think! My husband's name is John & he is a believer in all of this..after 26 years together lets say he couldn't get away from it! LOL anyway both his parents are on the other side, I adored them so much that as much as I'm satisfied with my reading I had in 2011 I would definitely be open to hearing from them. When I think of my in laws I think LOVING when I think of my Mother inlay she is the definition of a PURE Heart. So I am putting it out there if they want to visit me with a Message I will listen! As far as James I have learned so much agin in this interview & I am most definitely getting his CARDS I can't wait! He is a beautiful Spirit that's for sure! Thank you again Bob for what you do I will be thanking you over & over again because I am so Appreciative of how you help so many! One last funny thing I am friends with Linda West & her sister Jolene Paterson they are from long island they are Psychic sisters .you should have them on sometime they are so funny together! Anyway they told me that my dad sent me my husband and I use to joke about that for years so when I told my husband he said "Thanks a lot" LOL its all good He is the Best because my dad picked him for me! Bye for now OXOXOX Ornella~
