Where Was the Guardian Angel?

People often ask me, where was the guardian angel when a person they love, and especially a child, was killed?  Why didn’t the guardian angel save them?

Here is my own guardian angel’s answer! Her name is “Mariella.”

Mariella used a car accident as an example. Most of us have heard of someone who had a horrific car accident and walked away from it with not more than a scratch. People will say, “Your guardian angel was with you that day.” The reality is that your guardian angel is always with you, from birth until death and between lives.

Someone who walks away from a horrific car accident was spared because it wasn’t time for an exit point in the life plan. And most life plans have about three potential exit-points or deaths built into the plan. If the car accident doesn’t coincide with an exit point, and if an injury wouldn’t be in service to that soul’s growth or to the growth of someone in that person’s life, then the guardian angel’s job is to “wrap arms” around the person and cushion his body from harm.

angelBut what is the guardian angel’s job if the person is meant to die in the car accident?

Mariella explains that, in this case, the guardian angel would “wrap arms” around the person and take away all pain and fear, and help the soul slip from the body, so that person’s soul could then meet a beloved person or pet and cross over.

Remember that death itself is NOT painful, but pleasurable! It is a wonderful experience of light. All of our loved ones in spirit are happy, healthy, and whole.

You are cherished more than you can imagine.

And no one you love is ever really lost!

Hiking In Heaven: 2 Young Men (In Spirit) Arrange for Their Living Moms To Meet

~Reprinted from the December 2016 newsletter of Helping Parents Heal~

 – Elizabeth Boisson, President, Helping Parents Heal


Excerpt from “Soul Smart: The Dead Teach About Spirit Communication” by Susanne Wilson. In this excerpt, two young men (in spirit) arrange for their mothers (in physical) to meet. The two young men then provide stunning evidence of their after-death friendship through two different mediums.
Communication between the living and loved ones in spirit is natural. But it is not easy! In fact, after-death communication is so challenging that both the living and the dead must learn and practice their communication techniques.

In the spirit world, whenever a child is connecting with his living family, other children cheer him on! New friendships are formed among the children, although they never met while they were alive. 
Often, children (in spirit) will arrange to have their living parents meet! It makes the children happy to see their parents become friends who support each other.

Seven years ago, a delightful young man (in spirit) unexpectedly entered my life. Ultimately, he inspired his mother to co-found Helping Parents Heal with Mark Ireland. If you have not heard the amazing story of how I met Morgan and his mother, Elizabeth Boisson, then I invite you to watch the video of Elizabeth at the following link

And it just gets better!
A few days after I met with Elizabeth, I conducted a phone reading for a lovely woman on the East Coast named Jody. 

Jody’s son, Brian, was an accomplished athlete and a beloved son, brother, and friend. Before his death, Brian and his friends had planned a road trip. But Brian had a dream in which he “saw” a car accident during the road trip. He warned his friends and asked them to cancel the trip. They went anyway, without Brian who refused to go. Tragically, all four young men perished in a car accident on the road trip. 

Later on, Brian ended his life while sitting in his cherished sports car, a Mustang. His family and friends were devastated.

Now Brian’s mother, Jody, was having a reading with me. 
Prior to Jody’s reading, the only information I had was her first name. I quickly picked up from spirit that Jody was a bereaved mother. Her son, Brian, provided several evidential details including showing me his Mustang. He introduced his friends, the young men who died in the car accident. Everyone was happy and doing well!


Unexpectedly, I began picking up on another young man who was not in the car accident. Standing next to Brian, I spotted Morgan Boisson! 
I told Jody that a young man named “Morgan Boisson” was standing next to her son, Brian. Jody was perplexed. She had no clue who Morgan was. (Bear in mind that Helping Parents Heal did not yet exist.)

As the reading continued, I noticed that Morgan seemed to be coaching Brian on communicating with me. Brian was quick to learn. The two young men seemed to enjoy working together.  
The two young men motioned for me to look down at their feet. They were both wearing boots. I heard Brian say that he died with his boots on (which his mother then confirmed). hiking

Then the two young men motioned for me to look at the scenery. They were standing on a hiking path, high atop a mountainside filled with wildflowers.

Brian grinned from ear to ear and said, “Tell my mom we’re hiking in heaven.” 

At the end of Jody’s reading, we spoke about the likelihood of Morgan and Brian meeting while they were alive. The probability seemed to be zero. 

After Jody’s reading, I contacted Elizabeth and told her how Morgan had helped Brian with the reading. Then, Elizabeth and Jody spoke on the phone. They thought it was great that their sons met (after death). The words “hiking in heaven” were significant to Elizabeth because she had been hiking every day since Morgan passed and had felt her son’s presence each time she went.  However, the fact that Morgan and Brian were hiking together really didn’t mean too much to either mom. But that was about to change!


A few days after I conducted Jody’s phone reading (in which her son Brian was with Morgan) Elizabeth went to get a reading in Tucson with medium Tina Powers. 
Prior to Elizabeth’s reading with Tina Powers, one of Elizabeth’s daughters had met with Tina. Here I would like to note that although Tina knew some limited information about Morgan’s death, TINA KNEW NOTHING ABOUT BRIAN OR HIS CONNECTION WITH MORGAN. 

Now Morgan’s mother, Elizabeth, was having a reading with Tina in Tucson. Tina observed that there was another young man with Morgan. Tina saw a horse-a Mustang.  At first, Elizabeth didn’t understand but then she remembered that Brian transitioned in his car, which was also a Mustang.  Then Tina mentioned the song ‘Amazing Grace’ and Elizabeth understood the connection; Brian had passed in his beloved Ford Mustang. 
What Tina said next was astonishing. “They’re hiking in heaven.” 
We mediums never know which details will have the most significance to our clients. Thus, good evidential mediums give everything we receive, carefully, without putting our own spin on it. 
Tina Powers and I — completely independently from each other — had simply repeated the words Brian and Morgan provided, thereby providing evidence:
1. The two young men became friends after death;
2. They arranged for their mothers to meet;
3. They are thoroughly enjoying life after death.
Nearly seven years later, Elizabeth and Jody continue to keep in touch…Thanks to their amazing sons!

Soul Smart: What The Dead Teach About Spirit Communication

soul-smartCommunication between the living and the dead, when done respectfully and with reverence for both worlds, is right and natural. But it is not easy!

My new book, due out in January 2017, is all about how to communicate with beloved people and pets who have died as well as spirit guides.

Unlike most books of this genre, Soul Smart is written mainly from the perspective of the dead community.

This is your backstage pass to find out what your beloved dead really need from you to make communication work between you. You can learn what it’s really like in the heavenly country where there is no sickness and no death.

In this book, the dead speak in their own words about what it’s like to communicate with the living. They tell us exactly how they do it. They work very hard at it.

For example, did you know that the dead community uses remote control devices to fuse their energy with a bird, dragonfly, or butterfly? They do this so they can send their beloved living people signs: “I continue to be part of your life today and always. I am doing great here. I love you!”

I’m delighted to share that attorney, author, and one of the most important afterlife researchers in the world — Roberta Grimes — is writing the foreword to this hopeful, helpful, and healing book.

“Susanne Wilson is the greatest living medium in the world today,” said Roberta Grimes.

Well, I don’t know about that…Because I don’t compare myself to others…One thing I do know: The dead are not gone. The dead are not “somewhere up there.” The dead are right here and now. The dead are speaking.

Suzanne Giesemann: “The One Thing”


Suzanne Giesemann

This is a guest post written by my excellent colleague and dear friend, Suzanne Giesemann.

“I’m disappointed.”  Those were the first words out of my sitter’s mouth at the end of a session I did this morning.  I had just finished channeling her husband’s messages in his own words, answering the two questions she wanted own words, answering the two questions she wanted to know in words that were clearly not my own.  The husband in spirit had done an outstanding job of providing many details about himself along with things that are going on with the family now to show that his death was not the end of his existence.

So why was the sitter disappointed?  In spite of many pieces of accurate evidence that yes, I was indeed communicating with her husband, she had “prayed and prayed to hear ‘the one thing’” that would convince her that her husband was present.

Oh, my.  Deep breath time.  I have to remind myself that most people don’t understand how spirit communication works.  But wait!  Didn’t I have this clearly explained on my website under, “What to Expect in a Reading”?  Here’s an excerpt:

Those in spirit know the kind of evidence I hope to hear from them, including who they are, how they died, what kind of work they did, specific memories, and a long list of other details that will make it clear that they are with us in the room.  The information often comes through in scattered bits, and it can be like piecing together a puzzle.  Please do not let the outcome of the reading depend upon hearing “the one thing” that will convince you that your loved one is present.  It may not be possible for them to get certain details through.  Trust me that they will do their best to let you know they are with you, but expectations about specific things they can get through may be unrealistic and leave you disappointed.  Like a radio station, a medium is able to tune in to certain frequencies better than others.  Those on the other side will get through everything they are able to.  At times information is withheld if it serves a purpose not to share it or if they are not ready to share it. 

I sungave my all for that woman’s reading.  The husband did his part in spades.  My immediate reaction at her disappointment was intense irritation.  “Didn’t you hear all that evidence?  This is not like picking up a telephone!” and then I caught my human side rearing up due to my own disappointment that she would never be satisfied.  I took a few deep breaths and reminded myself that I was dealing with someone who was in great pain.

I sent the sitter my love, and then I sent a text and vented all over my friend, evidential medium Susanne Wilson.  It’s such a gift to have a sounding board who understands this unusual line of work that neither of us ever expected to be doing.  Susanne has been there/done that with sitters who weren’t going to be satisfied unless they heard “the one thing.”

Her reply immediately brought me back to center: “I think there were no instructions you could possibly have given up front that would have led to this person being satisfied.  Even if her husband went along and delivered the exact words she wanted, a week, or a month, or 6 months from now there would be a new “exact words” she needs to hear.  That’s why those in spirit often refuse to play the ‘code words’ game.”

Wow.  Instant “Aha!” moment.  Thank you, Susanne!  I’ve had numerous experiences of those on the other side withholding certain pieces of evidence for a reason.  Could it be, as Susanne added in a later text, that the spirit community does not want to create co-dependency or excessive emotional or psychological reliance on those in spirit?

I had agreed to do this session at no charge only six months after the initial session with this sitter because of the depths of her grief.  I usually ask people to wait at least a year for a repeat reading, if I do a repeat session at all, because so many others are waiting for the experience of connecting with their loved ones who have passed.  The goal of mediumship is to show the continuity of consciousness, and we had clearly done that in the first sitting.  I now see that I had enabled her.

Aabout Manifestation Divine pic butterflyt first I felt sorry for the husband in spirit who tried so hard, only to have his wife left disappointed that I couldn’t get “the one thing.”  Now I realize that he isn’t disappointed at all.  He made his presence known and expressed his love beautifully.  From his higher perspective in the spirit world, he knows that his wife is on her own soul’s journey.  Each of us grieves in our own way, and our challenges often lead to some of our soul’s greatest growth.

If “the one thing” a sitter wants to hear doesn’t come through in a session, is it the medium’s fault, a poor connection, or a deliberate act of love from the other side?  I don’t know.  There are many things I won’t know until I get to the other side.  All I can do is keep working on fine-tuning my antenna and overriding those reactions that come from being a soul in a human being’s suit.

When I recognize my ego flaring up (Ego is the default position in us humans, so it never completely goes away), and I rise above my human disappointment and irritation, what is left?  That’s easy:  compassion.  I feel the greatest compassion for my sitter’s pain, but I know that each of us grows through our trials.  Dealing with sitters’ expectations and not getting knocked off center is clearly a challenge for me to address with that pesky ego, so I will work on that.

I’m so very grateful for each piece of evidence that does come through this “instrument,” whether or not it’s “the one thing.”  It’s the most awesome, humbling feeling to sit with someone grieving the passing of a loved one and have that spirit say or show something through me that I couldn’t possibly know about them.  Those pieces of a puzzle that reveal a loved one’s presence bring healing and comfort beyond measure.  They say, “I’m right here with you.  I haven’t left you at all, and you will see me again.”  Taken all together, the evidence shows us that love never dies.

Wow.  That’s it: “Love never dies.”  That’s the ultimate message of this work as a medium, isn’t it?  So, Susanne and I, and every other medium who isn’t satisfied unless we get verifiable evidence when we serve spirit do, indeed, get “the one thing” every time.

I am so grateful.

How To Get An Appointment With Susanne Wilson, The Carefree Medium

First, I wish to say:  Thank You For The Love! 

FlowerI have heard from hundreds of people. They saw me on TV or heard me on a radio show. They vibed with my message: You are loved and never alone.


I’d like to take a moment and explain why the wait for an appointment is so long. I have good news about how you can sign-up for a future appointment opportunity.

Every week, we receive requests to “fit in one more reading.” But we can’t. The reason we can’t fit in one more is because mediumship, done right, requires tremendous energy on the part of the medium.

My schedule is arranged precisely so that I can give each client 100% effort.
StudentOver scheduling is not in anyone’s best interests. In the past when I have overworked (because I wanted to help someone) I became sick with serious physical, medical conditions. If I get sick, the wait time gets longer, plus my sickness takes a toll on my family and me. And I plan to do this work all my life; it is a marathon, not a sprint.


I am currently working my way through more than 1 year’s worth of clients. As the saying goes: “You cannot fill the cup of another, if your own cup is empty.”  The day will come when we will be making new appointments.

Thanatopsis: A View of Death by Chris Foote, Guest Blogger

I’m a funeral director in New Zealand working with families once death has occurred; I began the natural funeral company 16 years ago responding to deep urges in myself and with a desire to be alongside people and death in an organic and natural way. I have developed a non-embalming style of body-care and have held families in their grief in the first few days after death.

Here’s what I have learned.

lantern heartI believe the essence of a person cannot be fully felt until someone dies.

We then go into an altered state and realize their value and worth and the meaning of their life for us.

Several things unfold at these times that are worth paying attention to. I believe these provide meaningful insights into our spiritual lives.

Firstly, sadness and tears are a beautiful expression of love when someone we value has left our lives. This sadness can help us articulate our love in the first few days after death and can in turn be expressed as part of saying farewell. If you can catch the whispers of thoughts and feelings you can them formulate exactly what someone means to you.

While it is not necessary to have an elaborate funeral, I believe it is important to mark the ending of someone’s life with some form of farewell. To say thank you for your life, and all you have meant to us, is an important ritual of love and respect.

I believe one of our tasks is to discover what it is we believe happens at death and to allow this process to teach us. Experiencing a death can give us a glimpse through the door as we visit what it means to die.

sun haloIt has been my discovery that most people believe they will see the people they love again and that the ones they love will be together after death. People say this, even when they do not have a view of what may happen when we die.

It is a common belief in a number of cultures that we should allow three days for the processes of dying and separation to take place. It is a very special time when our everyday awareness alters.

It is a time when we can be visited by unusual experiences, synchronistic and symbolic events. It is important not to brush over these when you notice them and not be afraid to express them as many people have similar experiences.

The more comfortable we can be around death the more we can lighten the sense of morbidity.  It is OK to be uplifted and develop a confident presence around death.

hummingbirdGrief is not the easiest emotion to be comfortable with as there are many components to work through, including change, guilt, and loss. People in grief need our attention on relationship; it would be helpful for us to be comfortable with difficult emotions, and to allow others to be themselves – with both their strengths and weaknesses. Our attention is a gift to those experiencing a loss.

I know we can suffer from what to say and how to say it and how to help. But your presence can be the most helpful gift of all. There is no need to cover the feelings of loss or become solution based. Allow the other person to express their experience and tell their story.

Generally, as children and young adults, we have not been taught about the life-death-life cycle of our lives. That not only people die but relationships die, situations change, nature changes.
