GOD asked. She Listened.
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 would 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 made me feel safe. To most people, seeing some dark-haired stranger would be cause for alarm, but I was not afraid. She seemed like she had been my friend forever. She was not real, though – she was a spirit. But for me, it was normal.
I was born into a spiritualist family 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 all the way back to my Great-Grandmother Haddie.
I grew up in a small, rural town in New England. The house I grew up in was an old, historic schoolhouse where children once learned in one big room, and they're always seemed to be spirits available for my viewing. Do you know children will sometimes have imaginary friends? Well, I seemed to have many! There always seemed to be somebody from the spirit world watching and guiding me as I grew. 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 safe every day. I always felt love and protected.
Recently, I met a group of friends from high school. We all got together for dinner one night, and I was asked the question, "Could you see spirit back then?" "Of course, I could," I replied. They continued to ask, "But why didn't you tell us? Can you just imagine walking down the halls of your high school and telling people you could see dead people? I do not think I would have gotten asked out to the prom!
So, I lived my life like most people do, enjoying everything that went along with it. Marriage, children, and having a career and life seemed pretty normal. I always followed and received guidance that would be sent down from Heaven, many times hearing the voice of God who called me little one.
I still did not talk about it with most people, except my mom, my biggest confidante. And since she had these same gifts, it was nice to talk to her about certain things that would take place. 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," when I replied, "Why?" He said, "Because the world is becoming a darker and darker place, and we need more light."
After hearing God's voice that day, I opened Messages from Heaven, a Healing and Learning Center. Today I am happy to share my gifts with others seeking knowledge and a knowing that there is a Heaven, and it is for real.
