God Asked. She Listened. Now She Shares Her Gift
Dear Bonnie: How long have you had this gift of being able to see and talk to spirits? -- Julie
Dear Julie: This is a question I get asked a lot!
When I was a young child, I used to “see” this adorable little girl with dark hair and bangs who would always come outside to play with me. She’d stay out there with me for hours, and my mom always watched from the window. Not only did this little girl keep me entertained, but she always made me feel safe. To most people, seeing some dark-haired stranger would be cause for alarm, but I was not afraid of her at all. She seemed like she’d been my friend forever. She wasn’t “real,” though -- she was a spirit. But for me, it was totally normal.
I was born into a family of spiritualists and have been a medium since birth, having conscious memories of spirit communication since the age of 4. For many generations, my ancestors have had this gift from God running through their veins, and my clairvoyant gift was passed down to me through several generations on my mother’s side of the family. My mother, grandmother and great-grandmother all have this gift.
I grew up in a small, rural town in New England. The house I grew up in was an old, historic schoolhouse where children learned in one big room, and there always seemed to be spirits available for my viewing. You know how children will sometimes have imaginary friends? Well, I seemed to have many! There always seemed to be somebody from spirit there watching and guiding me, such as a Native American who would sit on the porch and wait for me to get off the bus every day from school. My mom could see what I was seeing and would reassure me that he was one of my guides watching to make sure I got home safely every day. I always felt loved and protected.
Recently, I met a group of friends from high school. We all got together for dinner, and I was asked the question, “Could you see things back then?” “Of course I could,” I replied. They continued to ask, “But why didn’t you ever tell us?” Can you just imagine walking down the halls of your high school and telling people you can see dead people? I’m pretty sure no one would have asked me to the prom!
So I lived my life like most people do, enjoying everything that went along with it -- marriage, having a baby, a career. And to most people my life seemed quite normal. But I was always taking in the guidance that was still being sent down to me from heaven, many times hearing the voice of God, as he always called me “little one.”
I still didn’t talk about it with most people, except my mom, who was my biggest confidante. And since she had these same gifts, it was nice to be able to talk to her about the things that would happen. My mom always understood.
As I was mechanically putting on my makeup one day, I heard God’s voice coming through loud and clear: “I need you to do more of this work for me,” and I said, “Why?” He said, “Because the world is becoming a darker and darker place, and we need more light.”
I owned a salon at the time and I asked, “God, what if I starve?” and he answered back, “Have I ever let you starve?” And it’s true -- I had never starved or wanted. God always gave me what I needed.
As I walked into the living room and told my husband, George, “God wants me to do my mediumship full time,” he responded, “Then do it!”
With his blessings and support, Messages From Heaven was born -- a healing and learning center for me to bring healing messages to those in need and teach others how to get in touch with their own abilities. Today I am happy to share my gift with others.
God asked. I listened.
