The Ghost and the Laughing Moose


My birthday was April 30th and I was very sick with a cold.  Normally Larry would take me out for a Birthday Dinner and unfortunately I was too sick to go out for a celebration dinner. I surrendered to my illness and found some hot soup and a warm “blanket” to stop the world and heal.

A couple of days later my husband made a trip to the local airport.  Walking around he noticed a gift store, curious he walked in to browse.  Piled high in the entrance were these adorable stuff animals, one of which was a silly faced moose.  These “Chuckle Buddies” are motion activated for a rolling and laughing fit of happiness.  Knowing how bad I was still feeling, Larry thought of a chuckle for me and purchased this silly fun gift.

Bringing “the moose” home, Larry removed it from its box and laid it down on the hardwood floor in front of the kitchen area.  Larry called my name; I came out of my office, walked down the hall and right in front of the motion activation light. I almost jumped out of my skin, as this funny looking moose starts rolling around the floor and just laughing a hilarious roar over and over!  

After catching my breath and the moose stopped laughing, I walked in front of it several more times to make it laugh and laugh.  By this time, Larry and I are laughing as loud as this silly moose!

This silly moose had rolled into our enclosed kitchen area and was able to laugh its way around the kitchen island.  For the next several days we allowed ourselves to forget where it would continually walk in front of it.  In my office I can hear the mouse laugh when Larry walked in front of it and then I hear Larry start laughing also!  And then when I walked int front of it and start laughing Larry would come join me in the kitchen. 

Around a week later, in the later afternoon, I am in my office and I hear the moose start laughing.  I get up and walk into the hall to watch if Larry will start to laugh.  To my amazement Larry is in the hallway with a finger crossing across his mouth.  I am puzzled, I stand still and the moose then stops laughing.

As I look puzzled at Larry, he puts up his hand for me to not walk or move and then to my amazement the moose (out-of-sight from us) starts laughing and twirling on the floor!

Where we are standing is in the hallway away from the entrance to the kitchen.  The mouse is between the Island and the refrigerator and sink, laughing and rolling all on its own.

Larry has been aware that I have had several observations of a spirit woman walking around the house.  The original owner of this house was the land owner of this 600+ housing subdivision and at 90 years old and as a reward to herself she specially designed this house to live in.  The design is why we bought this house as it has several extra-large rooms, for my office and Larry’s TV Cabinets and furniture. 

I was told by my neighbor, Betty, who has lived in her house since the original owner moved into this one, that the description of this spirit lady and the 90 year old first owner is the same.  She lived here for four years, moved to a “retirement complex” and passed away two years later at 96 years old.  Though I had seen her, and she must have loved this house, she never acknowledged me or I thought so.

After asking Larry exactly where the moose was, I leaned into the kitchen and asked, “Are you the lady who built this house?”  As soon as I said that the moose started rolling around and laughing! 

Larry and I looked at each other and just smiled!

I asked again, “Is it ok if we live here with you?”  Just as soon as I was able to ask, the moose started laughing and twirling around! 

Again, so amazed!  Over this last week, while Larry has been at work, the moose, whether in the hallway or in the kitchen kept on laughing and twirling around all by itself.  This so amused me!  There are no windows that any shadows could make the moose just take off.  Clearly, my spirit lady is so enjoying her new toy!

In a Coma or Dead, He came to Her

A woman in her 40’s came to visit and to ask about her career change and possible love relationship in her near future. 
As we sat down she mentioned how very happy and grateful she was, that she had a good job opportunity for a change of location and security.  She had recently moved from central California to Tucson Arizona six months ago.  So I gave her what I picked up and she was grateful.
There had been sadness in her immediate family and we were able to settle a couple of unfinished issues with some relatives.  I let her know a couple of spirit people where here with her and I described them visually to her. 
She sat back feeling good with the information and more secure with the choice to move and start a new life.  She gave a sigh.
As she sighed, a new spirit came into the room.  I was surprised that this man showed me his legs!  I thought, “Wow, he was a really thick muscled individual.”  The spirit man said, “Look at my big caves!”  Really?  Realizing that this man was meant for her I told her, “That he had these larger caves, not too tall and with an almost black shirt.”   He said he was a thicker man all over.  I saw his head but could not see any hair. 
I described him as a “huggy-built man, dark to almost black shirt, around 5’9” in height.  She went a little pale, eyes got a blank look.  She said, “Is this a dead man?” 
Gosh, I assume this is a “dead” man.  Usually spirits who visit me are dead.
She signed again, and then admitted to me that one reason she transferred to Tucson was to move away for her “past”.  She told me of a bad relationship with a man who mentally controlled her, while getting her to support him. 
She just learned that this man moved also out of state to Alaska.  Just a week ago she learned the man had suffered a stroke three months back.  Someone she is acquainted with and knows this “ex” had just told her that for the last two weeks he had been trying to connect with him on Facebook.  He had been corresponding on a regular basis and then nothing.
“That is amazing!” I said to her. 
“Clearly this man has recently died and is visiting us and saying goodbye.  Letting you know he is now in spirit.”
As perplexed as she could possibly be, she said she did not want him to be here or to follow her around.  She was done with him in life and wanted to be done with him now, especially if he was dead!
Carefully I asked, “So your mutual friend told you that he had recovered enough from first stroke to get back on Facebook?  Then you believe two weeks ago, he had a second stoke?  And that is why, this mutual friend then could not touch base with him?”
She was anxious to find out and asked to end the session to make some calls.  Later that day, after I had looked at his Facebook page and saw that nothing else had been sent off from him, I accessed the Obituary of his area and I found nothing.
I called her the next day and talked to her again.  She was not able to find time to research further.  She did make the comment that more than likely he had not worked, was a hermit type of person and possibly if he did pass no large notice would have been made.
She noted again, that all the descriptions and the way he talked through me sounded just like him.  She then added that he had a shaved head that is why I could not see hair. 
“How would you like this blog to end?”  I asked her.  A pause and then I added.  “I do believe that people who are in a coma can come to visit or say ‘good by’ before death.  I had seen this several times in all these years.  This is a question not often asked of me, but clearly a natural process.” 
She added that she does believe this is him, but wants to be reserved not to absolutely declare him dead as though it could create negative Karma.  She feels it is also possible that he could be in a coma.  The bottom line is that he did appear and we both got the impression that he was ‘soft’ toward her and not in a ghost-haunting spirit way.  A ‘soft’ impression gives me the thought that he was kind towards her, another term could be ‘forgive me’.  Yes, a big assumption, yet he did love her but mistreated her.  Now in spirit he wanted to let her know he was sorry.
How is it that this spirit knew to show on the day this lady scheduled a session with me, on her particular day off from work?  Well, her other relatives also came for a visit so they knew also.  She had wanted to know they were in her life, but she had not thought of him for months so clearly she had not invited him to show up during her session. 
My thoughts are this, at the time of his first stroke; he might have left his body and looked for her to say good by.  At the time of his second stroke, and possible death he might have impressed upon her to find someone who would recognize him and give her a message.
In a future blog, after we are able to confirm out what has happened to him, I will let you know.

Spirit Pets Play Together in the Afterlife

A couple of young women came for a visit with me to talk on a couple of different topics.  They came together to give each other support since they had never talked to a psychic medium before.
Minutes before they came I had a sense one of them was under either stress or experiencing grief.  I see both situations represented by a gray-colored smoke-looking energy circling the person’s body. 
As usual, cookies and water was put out for them when they arrived.  Hearing their car doors open and close, I opened the front door and sure enough saw the shorter of the two ladies had grayness surrounding her body.  Ok, she is the one.  I’ll need to sort out the problem.
I briefly talked to them, had them laughing at a couple of my stories to relax them and started talking to the taller lady.  Talking to her and answering her questions easily satisfied both of them.  Asking again if she had any more questions she said she was done and turned my attention to the shorter lady with the grayness around her.
We started her session with me mentioning that she had some family questions and wanting to know about a deceased relative.  That deceased relative did come to us and satisfied her wanting to know how she was doing.  Talking of children and her husband we finished her questions and we paused.
Then I asked her, “Are you seriously grieving the relative you lost just over a year ago?”  She replied, “Well no, I am at peace with her passing.”  I described how I had thought of her before she came and did notice the grief surrounding her body and it was still there as we sat.  I asked who else she had lost; she looked straight ahead as in thinking about my question.  The taller lady looked at her and almost yelled, “What about Bear?”  The shorter lady looked stunned!  Her eyes reddened and she was speechless.  The friend told me of her friend’s life, 15 years earlier after her divorce she purchased a puppy, they had greats years together and then he had died a year ago.  She was still profoundly grieving her companion! 
She asked about him and what he was doing.  I described a dog I was viewing and she confirmed yes that was him, and asked, “Where is he?”  I said he was not in the room with us, but at a front or back yard with a long hedge running along the left side of the property line.  It appears that he is digging holes all around that yard, but particularly at the end of the hedge toward the back property line. 
The dog had a sense of me and started digging at the end of the hedge and then turning around and around and playfully barking at a group of other small animals.  All this activity was being done at the end of the hedge area at the end of the property.  
Both ladies were squirming around in their chairs and getting excited with my answers.  Both ladies were talking at once.  Bear had been an active digger and particularly liked to sleep in the hedge area just as I described.  Out the back door to the left the full length of the property, where the shorter lady still lived. 
Then the shorter lady added, “We buried him at the end of that hedge at the back of the property.  We also buried all our other deceased small pets in the same corner!” 
Bear was playing with the three other smaller spirit pets that she had lost in the years living at this house! 
Needless to say even I was surprised!  This is the first time in all these years working as a psychic medium consultant that I described the pets who are deceased, dying years apart, yet still connected!   It is so comforting to think we can have our pets enjoy their home after death, but even more surprising they can continue to play together in the same location in their yard. 
What a joyous revelation!  Thank you Bear for getting your owner here today, to fully recover from losing you and happy that she truly never lost you.

Spirit Mom gives a Gift at Christmas 2010

Over 30 years ago, while I was working at Pac Bell in Sacramento California, I met my friend Paula.  We were talking recently and I suggested for fun she should learn to intuit with a Tarot Desk of Cards.  I look at Tarot Cards for the fun and beauty of the designs, as the art work is usually unique and very beautiful.  I encourage new psychic students to practice using Tarot cards to developing their psychic hunches.
Shopping the last week in November for Christmas Gifts, I found a ‘gift box’ of “Discover Yourself” techniques with a small Tarot Desk of Cards.  The entire box was in beautiful reds, oranges and designs for the beginner intuitive to have lots of fun.  Thinking of my friend and my suggestion, I gladly thought this would be a fun to receive gift from me to her.
Getting home I looked at the box again and thought secondly that perhaps Paula would think this material was too young for her.  The contents looked to be geared to teenage girls.  Thinking I should get my friend a different holiday gift, I put this kit aside.
A few days later I got a call from “D” saying that her sister’s year death day was the 9th of December and that she and her two sisters would like to come over to see how “L” was doing. 
A couple days later she called to say that “L’s” 15 yr. old daughter would bring along her best friend and the group total would be five.  I hung up the phone and started thinking about the mother and had such a strong sense that the gift that I had put aside would be perfect for her daughter! 
Well!  I bought some cookies and had small water containers ready for the ladies on Thursday the 9th.
I always enjoy talking to small groups, as each participant afterward can easily remember more to help each other understand better the messages given.
So, as we had all sat down, my first thought was to talk to the oldest sisters and explain to them about how I started;  my afterlife beliefs to relax them and for them to please enjoy our visit.
I glanced at the daughter and to her deceased mother standing behind her.  Instantly, I remembered the gift, and it was very clear to me presenting the gift was how I would begin the group session. 
So, today’s session was to start with a Christmas Gift to “L’s” 15 yr. old daughter.  
I told the daughter about how I purchased the gift for my friend, brought it home, and decided to put it aside.  Having just released my hand on the gift, “L” made her presence known to me and suggested I give it to her daughter.  What really surprised me was the Mom’s thoughts directed to me, “She is having trouble figuring herself out, and I am not there to help.  This is “my” Christmas Gift to her.” 
Really?  Wow!
Telling the daughter this, the Mother’s energy was soft and embracing not only to the daughter but also to me at the same time.  We all rushed to find the tissue box for the daughter to wipe her eyes.  She (Mom) was sorry she was not with her during her troubling times, that this gift was to let daughter know she (the Mom) was still in her daughter’s life.
After talking to the rest of the family and they left, I paused and reflected at the Mom’s ability to direct me to buy something for her daughter for Christmas.  Clearly, I am impressed by the love of this Spirit Mom to her child and how regretful she is for not being there for her.  In our daily lives I wonder how often do we get a message from Spirit and parley that into an action or gesture to let the living know of their presence.  Perhaps that idea to help us in our career or to say “love you” to someone just because, from our constant family in spirit. 
Perhaps that “thought” you just received is a soft spoken suggestion from our spirit guides or spirit family, to let us all be comforted in knowing we are not alone.

The Wicked Dream Ghost

This blog is one of many stories that will be included in my book “Ghosts, Should We Be Afraid?”   Visit my web site www.GhostsGoblinsSpirits.com for a list of blogs and coming up ebooks to download.
The Wicked Dream Ghost
Today is Thursday October 14th and my Husband Larry and I have just returned from our fast trip to Las Vegas were I performed a wedding.  I came back wanting to write a blog about what happened in our hotel room that involved a spirit, but needed to figured out how to tell the story and how that impacted me and why.
The hotel was picked out by my husband because of the location being near his daughter’s home where the wedding would take place.  I am a minister and was asked to perform the ceremony.  So, being close to the neighborhood of the wedding was smart. 
Las Vegas has one of the greatest “play grounds for adults” in the world.  People can go and gamble, see shows or just be a tourist and look at the amazing buildings or people watch.  The Las Vegas basin is amazing large and sprinkled in outlying areas are numerous “older” casinos for the local community.
How many of you reading this blog know of people, who gamble with such passion as to be compared to someone who is an addict to drugs or alcohol? 
I am someone who regularly talks to spirit people.  I help Char of California Haunts in her investigations, and you’d think I would have acquired a rather tough shell to protect myself from negative or abusive spirits.
Well!   Our third and last night there at this hotel, I talked to Char on the phone concerning an investigation she was doing that night.  After telling her what I picked up, I packed to leave Las Vegas the next day. 
Getting to bed late, and perhaps it is because what I do for a living I had a great sense of spirit people (or person) in the room.  Oh well, just go to bed and get on with the trip I thought.
I rarely have nightmares or too turbulent dreams.  But, this night I had a dream of a man unknown to me, with his face sideways shouting at me!  He was shouting and shouting and wanting me to wet the bed!  I realized in this dream that this man did not belong.  He was telling me to “pee!”  I saw him turn his head and as he moved away he left laughing! 
I woke up just in time, a hurry trip to bathroom and then I got mad!
“How dare this man!”  Wait!  What did I think?  I said “Man”!
Yes, get that aware moment everyone, spirit people were once living people.  This man was a tease, possibly used to getting his way.  His being in this casino, may give a hint that he likes to be around many people.  Oh how I wanted to ask the staff, “Have you had many guests talk about ghosts?”
Getting back to town, I couldn’t wait to ask my two very psychic friends “what happened?”  One friend described how he looked and that he was laughing when he left as if, “Well I got her.  Ha!”  That he enjoyed watching the people gamble and drink and would follow them around.  Wow, I did not even tell her the entire store.
My head spinning I called my second friend and started to tell her what happened and she followed the same story line as I had felt and the other friend a few minutes earlier. 
In my conscious mind, I am completely in charge.  Char of www.CaliforniaHaunts.org that I do remote viewing and other ghost related tasks, made a commit one day, “you are the most grounded psychic, I have ever known”.  This is a great compliment.  But as I tell this story, I wasn’t so grounded in that Las Vegas hotel dream!
So, now since that trip I realize we need to be diligent to keep our “grounding” both conscious and in an unconscious state.  I have given my conscious mind commands to know my own body and own my dreams in an unconscious state. 
For you reading this story, I will cover “commanding control over your unconscious mind” in upcoming “class instruction”.
Which opens another idea, “What about ghosts who stay in our unconscious state and become ‘Hitchhikers”!   Oh my, possible in any state of unconscious? 
Clearly this also will also be a special focus in my book on Ghosts.

Now He Believes in the Hereafter!

Howard and his wife Karen live in Northern California and I have been a friend of Karen’s for about 15 years. 
Karen is a professional hypnotherapist helping those who seek a change in their life, Howard a business man excellent at running his company.
Howard was on one of those usual out-of-town trips working sales with a factory rep.  This trip was to Southern California and Howard is able to stay with his brother
Normally he pays little attention to the psychic awareness that surrounds his world, with his wife’s interest in the paranormal and her friend Nancy (me).
My friend Karen and I have been involved for a couple of years investigating the idea and symptoms of ghost attachments.  Sharing with Howard what she is learning, Howard had not discredited her; but, casually dismisses her excitability and awe of spirits and ghosts.
Some of this excitability is contributed to my ability to see spirits and ghosts and to give a physical description of who is occupying your house with you or perhaps whom you are sharing your body with.  I have shared amazing ghost stories with her and helped her identify an “attachment” on a client seeking her out for help.
She came up with a great expression, “Where is that rabbit home!”  Meaning, Alice has a new adventure awaiting her down the rabbit hole!
Recall a moment of clarity when you have that “ah ha” moment, that perhaps that ghosts do exist.  You will not ever forget that moment, nor will your life be the same after that.
Or when you see something out of the corner of your eye?  You want to re-collect time and back it up, to remember every small detail again.
Now let me tell you about Howard.
Howard saying goodnight to his brother and his family headed up to bed.  After a visit with family and a late dinner, getting up in the middle of the night can be a nuisance but necessary.  He awoke and strangely he felt as if someone where looking at him.  Brushing that thought aside he got up and turned on the light next to the bed.  Traveling down the hall and back again he did not recall that strange feeling as he had gotten up.  Sitting down on the bed and pulling up his legs, he glanced to the end of the bed and saw a taller lean translucent form of a man sitting next to his feet.  Then looking down the height of the man to the bed, this spirit form actually made an impression!  Surprised, he could tell the man was looking at him!
Taking his breath, not knowing what to do, his logic just said, “Turn off the light and go to sleep, all this will go away.” 
Calling his wife Karen the next day Howard could almost not wait to tell her what had happened and if he should tell his brother that they had a “ghost” in the house.  She could not wait to ask me what I thought.  She calls me and gushes, “You won’t believe what happened to Howard!”  At first I thought perhaps he had won the big Lotto, because certainly she was acting as I would if I had won.
I stopped her and ask her to please tell me what happened.  She was able to tell me all about the trip and Howard saying he had seen this spirit.  Then she asked, “Anyway could you clue into who the spirit was?”  In telling me the story, she did not tell me how he had seen details about the spirit.  I gave a description of the taller-lean, grandfather looking spirit; and added that he wanted me to know that he was from the mid-west and that he had died of cancer. 
Karen thanked me and took this description and talked to Howard on the phone.  Howard did not recognize the facial, location and cancer comment.  He turned around and talked with his brother who explained that I had described their father.  Their father had been dead for some time, and Howard could not believe his father would visit him!  The brother confirmed and reminded Howard that he had been raised in Cleveland Ohio and died of cancer.  He had been a taller-lean man with a sharp jaw and skin coloring as I had said.  Karen told me after Howard had talked to his brother a metamorphosis had come over him, shaking his head he declared he was now a believer!
After all these years, Howard has now awakened!  Welcome Howard to the real world of the paranormal and to the continuity of life and survival.

Spirit Grandma Grace Came for a Visit

She had called me up in the late morning and said we need to talk!  This was yesterday September 29th, at work she had had that ‘moment’ and asked of herself the ultimate question, “What am I doing? And where am I going?”
Since she is a returning client, I had time in the afternoon and at 2:00 PM we set up the appointment to talk.
I called her promptly at 2:00 PM; she chuckled and asked how much time I had for her.  “Humm, sounds like you have something serious to talk about.” 
This was a private session, so I cannot tell you details.  She allowed me to do the talking, and I covered many of the topics she was most concerned about before 25 minutes had passed. 
Her voice quickened and she needed to close up shortly and get back to her hair styling job. 
“There is a fine line between co-incidence and faith.”  A great line in one of great “Mummy” movie series, and here I will make reference to this as I go on to explain what happened next.
Around 25 minutes into the session, I paused and then said, “I wonder who is telling me this for you?”  Quickly as I said that, I was shown such a sweet looking “grandmother” very light skin, such apple shaped cheeks and very blue piercing eyes.  She appeared small in stature with a very small frame.  I explained everything I was seeing, my Client just said over and over, “I can’t recognize her.”  I told her not to spend time in the session figuring out who she is, but that she was there for her.  I made a comment, “I think she could be a great-grandmother” to your family.  I will par-phase what she gave to me next, “Take your time, be you and happy. “
My client then added, next time we need to talk about “religion”.  I quickly got that this was not the session to discuss this topic.  We finished up with a couple extra, “how to get started with her life” statements.
Later that evening, she had got off work and driving home she had another one of those moments, “Oh My Goodness that was my ex-husband’s Grandmother!”  My Client had been married for two decades and divorced five years ago.  She was very fond of her ex-husband’s Grandmother Gracie and loved her and Grandmother had loved her in return. 
Gracie passed away last February, when my client attended Grandmother Gracie’s funeral the family had included pictures of her as part of the tribute slide of family pictures.  Gracie's family told her how much they missed having her in the family; and that divorce sometimes means you divorce not a spouse but an entire family.
Very emotional she called her adult daughter and told her of our talk together and that I had brought through Grandmother Gracie. 
Her daughter then said, “Really?  Did you know that Dad and I took Grandmother Gracie’s ashes to her family plot in Oregon yesterday?” 
In response to this, my Client could not believe the co-incidence and that Gracie had wanted “her” to be happy in her life.  She said this message had brought her such comfort to know that this lovely lady still loved her.  My Client also expressed amazement that Gracie also said she was a “great grandmother,” which she was to my Client’s children. 
The next afternoon, we talk again and I asked what about her religion question?  My Client had mentioned her frustration with the ‘rules’ of her church.  Though I do believe that a church environment can be emotional healthy place to connect with like-minded people, for her to be in a hostile environment was not good. 
I wondered how Gracie showing up affected her idea of “a church environment talking about religious thought”.    She paused and considered this for a minute.  Clearly spiritual thoughts, actions and co-incidences happen every day to show us hope and a reason for happiness.  But, add the purposeful appearance of a “spirit family member” and the co-incidences combined makes an overture of “something more” and “the Divine” which makes “faith” in our purpose more real than ever before.  For if we survive, than clearly we are here for a purpose of “Living and Learning all we can of Life”.  
I asked my Client if I could type this story up and she said she would also follow up with an e-mail so I can post it with the Testimonials at my web site www.NancyMatz.net
