Every day after Kindred Spirits airs, I get the same message over and over again – some truly inquisitive – others indignant and frustrated, “WHY DIDN’T YOU CROSS THAT SPIRIT OVER?”
It’s a legitimate and understandable question. For years, we have been told by psychics, mediums, paranormal investigators and researchers that ghosts are somehow stuck here, that they need to be led to the light in some way. It’s a theory many subscribe too, but it is just that – a theory. Honestly, the entire paranormal field is nothing other than theory and speculation, but that’s a blog for another day. 😉
I first noticed it years ago on an investigation in Gettysburg. I had been told that a local home had been “cleansed” and the spirits had been crossed over. Yet, when I investigated the home, the ghosts who were supposedly long gone, were still very much there and they very much wanted to communicate. This happened time and time again. We’d be called into a house by desperate family members who had psychics, paranormal teams, etc come in and supposedly send these ghosts packing, but the activity continued and in some cases, increased.
For those of you who subscribe to this theory, please consider this for a moment. What if ghosts aren’t in fact trapped or stuck, but are here for a reason. Perhaps they weren’t ready to leave and they want to tie up some loose ends before they head off to where ever they go. Even if crossing things over did work, wouldn’t it be doing them a disservice to dismiss them without hearing what they have to say?
This is where our cases on Kindred Spirits come in. We wanted to showcase the fact that instead of sending out some intentions and telling a spirit it was ok to move on – that if you intensively and actively try to figure out WHY they are there and communicate it or provide a solution, the activity sometimes slows way down or ceases completely.
Is this set in stone? No. Nothing in this field is. But it’s something we’ve been trying for quite awhile now, and it appears to be working. In your world, feel free to conduct your investigations however you wish. But in our work, we will continue to research, feature intense investigations and try to give these families, and their ghosts, some closure.
Enjoy your holidays everyone! And thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support and love you’ve shown Kindred Spirits. The show has been a great success for TLC and we couldn’t be prouder of the work we’re doing. See you all soon!
