Connect to Those Who Have Died
Suzanne Giesemann, a spiritual teacher and medium, says that it’s possible to connect to those who have died.
I have flown on Air Force One with the president. I have been catapulted off the deck of an aircraft carrier and sat in on top-secret meetings at the Pentagon. Those moments make good stories, but they do not define my life. Not at all. It was the heart-stopping moment when I gazed down at the lifeless body of Susan, my stepdaughter, in a coffin that turned out to be the defining moment of my life.
I began meditating the week Susan passed in hopes of finding out if her soul still existed. Two years of this practice resulted in my unexpected discovery that we are all connected to a greater reality than this physical plane. I also found that I can connect with those who died.
Immense Healing Through Connection
I became aware of the immense healing that a medium brought to our family. So I threw myself into increasing the clarity of the connection I receive. Communicating with loved ones who have passed became my new mission, along with increasing the credibility of mediumship.
Several notable afterlife researchers tested me, and soon I became the first medium ever to be invited to speak at reputable national afterlife conferences and those dealing with the study of consciousness.
Soon I began reading for other parents who had lost a child, as we had. What a joy it has been to discover that our children are not dead and gone, but still actively participating in our lives! Each time I connect with a loved one in the spirit world, I ask them to tell me something going on with their family here and now to show them that our connection is valid.
Testing the Evidence
I even put my own Susan to the test. I’ll never forget the first time she dropped in on me personally. I heard her voice as if she had never departed. Knowing her father might doubt Susan’s unexpected appearance, I asked her to tell me something current about her biological mother that I couldn’t possibly know.
Susan put her hands on her hips and said, “Well, her cat is sick.” Ty and I immediately called Susan’s mom. She verified that she had just brought her cat home from the veterinarian with a supply of pills.
My initial goal of connecting with Susan through meditation resulted in a daily spiritual practice that today is sacrosanct. As a result of sitting regularly in silence, I have far more patience, peace, and joy.
I now know that we are never alone and that each of us is immensely loved. I have made it my goal to help others make the connection with their loved ones themselves.
