I'm descended from the Shawnee Chief Cornstalk who was killed in 1777.
I am also of Scots-Irish descent and VERY proud of my heritage and my culture. I do not apologize for my culture, nor am I "politically correct", and do not tolerate others who think that it is a necessity to be so.

I have been involved with Spirit ever since I can remember. When I was really young, however, it was one of fear mostly. I was terrified of the dark and used to see and hear things in it and all of that would scare me pretty bad. I chocked a lot of it up to imagination most of the time, but was very unsure.
I was staying with my grandmother during one period when I was hearing things in the house, though; voices, talking, that sort of thing. I thought that someone had broken into our house and was very afraid. I realized that it was NOT my imagination, however, when my grandmother became very concerned and told me to wait in the bedroom and she was going to go see if someone was in the house. I hadn't even said anything about hearing the voices, but she heard them as well, so it solidified for me the fact that I was hearing something.
That may not have been a big deal, except for the fact that we lived in the middle of nowhere in Indiana, and our closest neighbor at the time was about a mile away, and our house was on a small dirt road surrounded by cornfields. Therefore, NO one would have been walking around our property in the middle of the night.
I have had the ability to communicate off and on throughout my life, but it is nothing "solid" per se. At times it is overwhelming and at other times it is nothing more than a "feeling", with energy, much like you've said. There are times, though, that it is intense, such as if we go to someone's house where a person has recently died.
I rely a lot on more modern techniques for reliable contact, I suppose, such as EVP and such. I had a life changing experience when I was about 7 years old that suddenly shifted my fear of the unknown into one of almost complete fascination, and I've been there ever since.
I have rarely made anything public out of any of this, except for working as a private reader for people, and doing mundane things such as astrology. I have been a reader for many years, though, but have only even advertised it as a service to the public a couple of times in my life. There is such a great public interest and need, it seems, for some ideas on these subjects, though, which is why I decided to write this book. It has become such a public topic and that, to me at least, says that there is an energy that is very prevalent in the minds of a lot of people lately and that they are looking for answers in this, in whatever way that may be. And being a Spiritualist, I feel that to help everyone understand and more fully accept things from Spirit can only be something that is positive.
