Another mind bending session. As we start every podcast, I had no agenda or idea of whom we might speak with. In this case, Luana Anders, our moderator on the flipside, wanted to talk about a request I had made to her about helping someone.
Prior to the podcast, in a general conversation about how things are going, just prior to starting, I told Jennifer that a number of chaotic events were occurring, but did not mention anything about a dream or that I had asked Luana for help. When Luana came through and said "We got your message and the answer was given" - Jennifer did not know, could not have known that when I made this request in my head 'Luana I need your help" she said "I got it." Before I could think of what I wanted to hear from her - before I could finish the question. "Luana I..." and I heard "I got it."
That's the process. You make a request to loved ones on the flipside and if they can help they will.
Then Tom Petty came forward to expand upon that idea.
For those not familiar with how Tom could be in our podcast and we don't make a big deal about it - it's because he was the one who came up with the idea of calling our book "Backstage Pass to the Flipside." We have three and the fourth is "Tuning into the Afterlife." Transcripts of our chats with the flipside.
In his case, he came through because he wanted to pass a message along to his family - it was very specific. At the time I said "I don't know anyone from your family" and he replied "you'll figure it out." I did figure it out, send along his message - his family member said "Every day I wish I could converse with Tom, and I don't think you're doing so."
Which is fine - it's not my job to prove anything to anyone, but to pass along information if I'm asked to do so. Tom is always welcome because he's the one who gave us the concept that there is a "line around the block" of people who want to get into our class, use Luana's ability to help translate thoughts so that Jennifer can hear them.
Like those old offices they used to have in Europe, where if you wanted to make a call from Rome, you had to go to the "long distance" operator in an office building, and place the call from a booth.
Anyways, then Jennifer saw an image of someone named "Chris" and I associated it with not the person she saw, but with a friend of a friend who has had some health issues. I asked if "Chris" was going to be okay. Now, to let the audience know - if she had said "no" - I would have edited that out of the podcast. I'm not here to disrupt anyone's path - but if the answer is "yes" - as it was, I'm happy to include it.
Anyone can reach out directly to Jennifer for help and advice. JenniferShaffer.com - and as she points out on the podcast, she has a "Wine and Spirits" group where everyone gets to speak to their loved one in a public setting. I've attended a couple and they are amazing. She's very good at what she does when not helping law enforcement on a pro bono basis.
Oh and finally Hira, Robert Towne's dog with a message about pets being always connected to their owners from the flipside. Hira also appears in BACKSTAGE PASS TO THE FLIPSIDE.
