John Holland, is an internationally renowned psychic medium. Some of the books he has authored are ‘Born Knowing, Physic Navigator, 101 Ways to Jump-Start Your Intuition, and Power of the Soul. In this book ‘The Spirit Whisper’ he has answered some of the frequently asked questions. You can refer to the details of this book in the menu “Books” under the category “Evidence of Life After Earthly Life”.
Here I have selected some questions and the answers given by him.
Question: Are there different levels in the Spirit World?
Answer: Most definitely. Every lesson and deed here determines what level you’ll go to when you leave this physical world. You’re-incarnated into a physical body to assist you in your soul’s growth, which is why it’s so important to try to be the best you can be while you’re here. You should continually strive to be compassionate and kind, and give assistance and love to others. This will always increase your rate of vibration. When it’s your time to pass, your spirit will gravitate to its rightful level.
Question: Are there bad spirits, and if so, do they come to you?
Answer: In all the years I’ve done this work, I’m blessed to be able to say that I’ve yet to connect with a malevolent spirit or energy. I have a strong code of ethics in the way I run my own life, so it goes without saying that I strongly believe in the saylng “Like attracts like.” I work for the highest good, consider myself a child of God, and believe in a Higher Power; therefore, I wouldn’t attract this type of energy. I’m not that keen to call them “bad spirits,” as I’d rather refer to them as spirits that exist at a lower vibration and dwell in the lower spheres of the Spirit World. They’re just farther away from the Divine Source, so it will take longer for them to reach a higher level.
Question: Are the spirits connected to us all the time?
Answer: Here in the physical world, your family and friends aren’t around you 24/7, but when there’s a crisis or emergency, they’re there when you need them. Well, it’s just the same way with your family and friends on the Other-Side. They often know what’s going on in your life and try to let you know they are there for you, whether it’s for love, guidance, hope, or even inspiration.
I’m convinced that few people actually realize just how much energy it takes for those who have passed to lower their vibration and make a connection to this physical plane. As a result, it’s not something they’re going to want to be doing all the time. I believe that they have their own learning to do over there and need time to grow and progress, which is why those who have recently passed often need time before they’re ready to connect to the living.
Questions: Do you call the dead to you?
Answer: No, it really doesn’t work like that. Just like us, spirits have free will – mediums don’t have power over them. Most of the time, you’ll hear from the ones you’re hoping will come through with a message for you, but it’s rare that a medium will guarantee who’s going to come through. I’ve done many a reading with people who want to connect with a specific person, but end up hearing from someone they never expected. It isn’t a case of 1-800-Dial-the-Dead!
Just such a situation happened recently when I sat with a client named Vivian who had great trouble walking, so I agreed to go to her home. I arrived, and she put me in her mother’s room, sat me in her chair, and even made sure her mom’s photos were all around me. Did she get her mother? You guessed it – no. However, a woman did come through for Vivian – a friend of hers. As I started to describe her to Vivian, she screamed, “What do you want?!” while looking up at the ceiling. It turned out that ever since Vivian had lost her mom, she’d been a bit of a recluse. In the reading, her friend had come through to say that she was with her and wished she’d visit her other friends. I don’t choose the spirits – they choose me and will often come through, not with the message you want to hear, but one you probably need to hear.
Question: What happens if one of my parents reincarnates before I go over to the Other-Side? Does that mean one or both won’t be there when it’s my time to pass?
Answer: The best way I can describe this is an analogy that my colleague and medium Gordon Smith offered. Look at it this way. The soul is multidimensional. Imagine me as a computer, and with the computer is a hard drive which is the oversoul. The oversoul is the bigger part of our soul. The program known as “John Holland” is currently playing, and when this program is finished (that is, when I pass away) the program will go back into the hard drive (oversoul), and another program from the hard drive will come forth and play out. So the program that is known as “John Holland,” the personality and all the memories that I lived here in that lifetime, will always be in the oversoul. So have no fear, the loved ones you knew and loved here – will always be on the Other-Side waiting to greet you.
There are many levels to the soul, and as I’ve said many times before, the soul is multidimensional. All our lifetimes as a certain individual are stored in the oversoul, so a certain program should be fully accessible to a medium.
