How I Channel the Deceased


by Cherokee Billie

One of the most frequently asked questions that I receive is: Is it possible to communicate with a loved one who has passed away and, if so, how to do it. Loved ones usually try to get messages through to us to let us know how they are doing. They will communicate through psychics. They will try to appear to us. Sometimes they will come to us and project a smell that will remind us of them. Other times we will be sitting quietly and we will intuitively know they are there with us. They also work through electricity – turning TVs and radios on and off, affecting lights, doorbells, phones and computers. They seem to be able to manipulate energy – most likely because they’re energy!

How I started being able to communicate with the deceased started with my father’s passing in 1994. He passed away in the morning. The following morning as I awoke he was screaming into my right ear everything he wanted to me to know. I woke up saying, “Dad, you’re hurting my ear. Stop talking so loud.” I then did my best to remember exactly what he had been saying. It amazed me. I had never had such a spiritual connection in my life. Over the next few days he appeared to me, each time with a message. Yes, he actually was visible on his appearances the week following his death. Throughout the years he has continued to communicate and on rare occasions I have been able to see him. It’s absolutely fascinating.

Even though I had studied religions and beliefs in the afterlife, it never became real to me until my communication with my father. I have absolute belief in life after death. I think this is what has opened me up to be able to receive messages from people who are deceased.

I moved into a house in 1998 that had been custom designed by a paraplegic. He had died in that house. It only took a few days after moving in before he started manifesting his presence by turning on lights. From there a multitude of spirits started coming around. Sometimes as I would be sleeping there would be many walking around my bedroom quietly, but the sound of the carpet moving would wake me up, I could actually see them at this point, and I would ask them to please be quiet and they always cooperated. I continued to have many spirits visit me in this house.

Not all that visited me were all of God. Many of my friends had bad experiences seeing different spirits throughout my house. Even my cleaning lady who could not speak English came out of my bedroom scared one day and was able to tell me about a spirit that came out of the closet and frightened her. My best friend saw the same spirit coming out of my closet and it scared him. I would just keep myself surrounded in God’s White Light and trust that I would be protected. Eventually I sold this home, but it still holds a very special place in my heart.

The more I worked as a professional psychic I started receiving messages and images from the other side. I finally had a client ask me if I could communicate with her son who had been killed in an automobile accident. I told her that I would try. What came through amazed not only me, but her. I was able to tell her so much about what he felt and how happy he was now. Then it hit me that talking with the deceased is really no different then doing a psychic reading. I cannot see the person I am doing the reading for – we are connected through wires, satellites, and radio waves. I am able to connect to the other person (their spirit) and get answers. From this realization I found the answers from the other side started coming faster.

I am a guide standing at the threshold of the other side. I have no knowledge of your interlink. I am only a voice from this world to the other world. Is there someone waiting? Is there another who wishes to speak to you? Is there one on the other side you want to talk to?

I can give you nothing more than what the other world wishes to convey. I am merely a connection from the inner or outer world to you. I can make the interlink between you and the other side because I stand in the shadowy realm between both worlds.

Although I will seek to receive the message from your loved one that has passed, sometimes the message comes from one or others that I did not seek. I can only pass the messages to you that I am given. The strongest messages come through which are not always from the one I asked to speak with. Accept the message from no matter where it comes, because it was given for a reason.

Now I communicate with the deceased on a regular basis for my clients. It’s always intriguing to hear what comes through. Believe me it’s one of my favorite parts of doing this work.

Spirits or deceased loved ones don’t all speak. Some think to us, in other words their messages come through as thoughts. They also communicate with us through images, pictures in our minds. Again, interpretation is the key.

When we go to the other side, we go to a different culture, there is a prevailing calmness over there. The day-to-day dramas don’t exist as we know them. Souls on the other side aren’t caught up in the daily struggles we are or in the deep need to survive. They realize they have survived, and they see life here as a series of experiences to learn from. They don’t always cling to the memories the way we have a tendency to do. They experience everything in present tense. There are no clocks or calendars, no time as we think of it. Yes, souls on the other side do have memories; they remember some of their yesterdays, but they’re not necessarily the ones we remember.

Finally, remember that departed loved ones may be having just as hard a time as we are accepting their deaths. It’s very important to respect their process. Pulling on them too hard makes it harder for them to move on.

If you are having a difficult time with the loss of a loved one, don’t ask your loved one to comfort you. Seek out someone here who can help you.

Life after physical death is truly a reunion back to our real life, our true existence. Just as our clothes cover our bodies, our bodies cover our souls. When our souls move out of our bodies and move on to the next dimension, they are free! Free to see and know the truth about themselves, their lives, heaven, and God.

How to Find Your Animal Totem

Native American Totem

I felt that this would be a good addition for those who have not found their animal totem. An Animal Totem is an important symbolic object used by a person to get in touch with specific qualities found within an animal which the person needs, connects with, or feels a deep affinity toward. In the Native American culture this is the reason people wear fur, feathers or heads of animals on their body, because they were taking on the energy of the animal.

You can have several animal guides through out your life. Sometimes an animal guide will come into your life for a short period of time, and then be replaced by another depending on the journey or direction you are headed toward. Your guide will instruct and protect you as you learn how to navigate through your spiritual and physical life. When you find an animal that speaks strongly to you or feel you must draw more deeply into your life, you might fill your environment with images of the animal to let the animal know its welcome in your space. Animal guides can help you get back to your Earthly roots, and reconnect with nature by reminding you that we are all interconnected. To first do this you need to know what your Animal Totem is.

If You Don’t Know

If you don’t know what your Animal Totem is there are several questions you can ask yourself. All of the questions below are designed to get you thinking about a prominent animal in your life. There is no right or wrong answers. Only you can truly know which Animal Totem(s) are right for your journey.

Since we are drawn to that which resonates with us, what animal, bird, or insect are you drawn to?

When you go to the park, forest, or zoo what animal are you most interested in seeing?

What animal do you most frequently see when you’re out in nature or in the city?

What animals are you currently interested in learning about?

Which animal do you find most frightening or intriguing?

Have you ever been bitten or attacked by an animal?

Is there a recurring animal in your dreams or do you have one you have never forgotten? Still

Uncertain?

If you are still uncertain which animal is your totem, here a few exercises you can do to come closer to the answer. You must not try to force the animal to come, it can pick up on that energy and be put off. Being patient and doing the following exercises will draw your animal totem to you.

Ask yourself what animal has played a meaningful part in your world? If you’re unsure, make a list of animals that have drawn your interest or have left a deep impression on you from paintings, photographs, stories, movies, carvings, etc.

Which animal shows up in your life most frequently? Keep a journal of the animals present in your dreams or that you encounter through the day for the next month. How did the animal behave? Did you interact with the animal?

Find a place where you can be alone to meditate. Sit quietly and ask your animal to make its nature known to you. Feel free to use tools such as incense, smudge, and candles to help you.

Don’t give up; sometimes your animal totem is nearby watching to see if you’re serious about connecting with it. Keep doing the above exercises until your animal totem makes itself known to you.
