When you have sometime alone to yourself, you sometimes travel back to the past and unearth memories of life events. Thinking about people (and pets) who have died and all the moments you enjoyed together is one of the most common memories we have.
I’ve heard from people who express distress and upset over the fact that they are having fading memories of faces or voices of loved ones; or the memories of some of the thing they did together are gone. This has happened to me many times. There are friends, family and pets who have died many years ago. I can’t remember some of the things they used to say, how their voice sounded or certain family gatherings and special events. Some things have faded completely from my memory.
But – I remember their ESSENCE! Their essence; what made them WHO they are to me; HOW I felt when I was around them, and the hole they left in my life when they died.
So to those people out there who are grieving from a recent passing or those of you who lost someone decades ago – don’t worry about losing memories of events, or voices, or little things you did together. Relax, look at a photo or an object that was a part of them and remember HOW they made you FEEL. That is their essence; their connective energy to you.
No one is ever truly gone from your life, spiritually.

Our video of a really creepy ghost photobombing our investigation! We were at a house doing a paranormal investigation and spirit removal. There were 3 infrared cameras stationed around the house. One of them was on a second floor landing. The infrared camera caught “something” peeking into the camera lens. At that time there was no one on the landing; 2 of us were in the basement and the others were in the living room on the main floor.
We reviewed the videos, and had found an incredible EVP which we had posted quite awhile ago. However, in the excitement of that, we had missed this and a couple of other goodies which we will soon be posting.
Please watch the video and subscribe to our YouTube channel. This and the interview by Candice Anne Marshall premieres tonight!!
There are quite a few cases we have had where a child is seeing something in their closet or under their beds. A boogie man. Something scary. And there has been on the opposite scale, children who see other child spirits who are friendly and want to play with them.
They have tea parties, long conversations and play time together. Some children want their parents to know about their “friends” and others keep them secret. People chalk it up to an over active imagination or a lonely child trying to invent a companion.
The “imaginary friends“ turn out to be spirits of departed children (sometimes adults) who are attracted to these living children for various reasons. Usually they’re child spirits waiting for their parents to cross them over and while they’re waiting, they have found a friend to play with. Eventually either the living or the dead move on and things change.
But unless the child is experiencing something frightening or upsetting, there’s nothing wrong with them being able to see and interact with spirits and parents should ease up on the thoughts of mental illness or made up stories by their children. In a lot of the circumstances, both the dead and the living need each other for that small period of time. Give it to them.
All Saints‘ Day is a feast day celebrated on 1st November. All Souls‘ Day on the 2nd of November, is a time to pray for departed souls.
All Saints’ Day November 1st* All Saints‘ Day, also called All Hallows’ Day, Hallowmas, or Feast of All Saints, in the Christian church. It’s a celebration of all Christian saints, particularly those who have no special feast days of their own, in many Roman Catholic, Anglican and Protestant churches. In many western churches it is annually held November 1 and in many eastern churches it is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost.
All Souls‘ Day November 2nd* All Souls‘ Day is a day of alms giving and prayers for the dead. The intent is for the living to assist those in purgatory. Many western churches annually observe All Souls‘ Day on November 2 and many eastern churches celebrate it prior to Lent and the day before Pentecost.
This day is always celebrated on 2 November. All Souls’ Day follows All Saints’ Day and is also called the Feast of All Souls, Defuncts’ Day (in Hungary, France, Italy, and Ecuador), Day of the Dead (Mexico) or Commemoration of the Faithful Departed.

Why are these days important? Why should I care if I’m not religious, don’t belong to an religious organization or don’t attend a church? These are good questions. My answer is this:
YOU SHOULD CARE about the All Saints’ Day because of the hundreds of thousands of people who sacrificed their lives throughout the centuries for others. Also for the people who were tortured and murdered by various governments and political regimes. These people, no matter what, are saints. Not in the religious sanctified church eyes, but they are saints to people who were persecuted, rescued or represented what was right and good. Honour them. Light a candle.
YOU SHOULD CARE about the All Souls’ Day because of all the friends and family (ancestors) who have passed before you. They gave you life, love, laughter and sustenance. Honour them and light a candle in their memory and cherish their photos.
