I’m often asked why a person goes missing or is abducted and I feel I can address some of the questions from a Spiritual perspective:
First, I will be speaking of my own experiences and it may sound a little complicated to those that don’t believe in “Past Lives” or don’t see things from a Spiritual frame of mind.
If you’ve read my Blog “Questions about me” then you will have some understanding on why I think the way I do. These are only my own experiences and understanding of the subject and in no way will I try to explain all instances where someone is abducted or missing since everyone has their own “Truths” and beliefs.
Even though I don’t want to be perceived as trying to diminish the horror or pain that surrounds any abduction or missing persons case, I will try to offer my personal views in an attempt to hopefully bring a little comfort for those that know of someone who is missing or to those directly involved in cases where a family member or friend is missing.
I was 8 years old when my father went missing in Vietnam and it lead me to look for answers as to why and how this could have happened to me. Even though it was over 40 later when I received my father back, I didn’t have all of the material answers I wanted, but I did receive many Spiritual answers I needed.
When someone is abducted/missing there are always questions by family members and friends as to “Why” they went missing. I can say that the net results are always positive as far as Spirit is concerned but you’ll have to suspend your emotions in order to understand those answers.
Below you will find what my own experiences revealed to me and what I’ve learned over the course of 40 years working in this area on a daily basis:
A. When someone is missing, all of the direct family members are the primary beneficiaries of the Spiritual lesson(s).
B. Each person involved in missing persons case will inherit their own Spiritual lessons which sometimes can be mutual to other family members/friends or just specific to each one on an individual Spiritual level.
C. The sum of all Spiritual lessons is ALWAYS greater than the individual Spiritual lesson that the missing person experiences.
D. A missing person usually sacrifices their own life for the benefit of all others involved on a Spiritual level in a benevolent way.
E. The perpetrator/abductors of a missing person is acting as a facilitator on one level but has his/her own Spiritual issues that will be tied to the act that created the abduction in the first place.
F. Most lessons that are involved in cases of missing persons can be very very simple on the physical level but are always multi tiered and sophisticated on the Spiritual level.
G. In every case of missing persons, the world in which the family lives is individually and environmentally impacted the same way as if time stood still for a fraction of a second to rewind their consciousness to a starting point aligned with that incident or tragedy. The world is also never the same for anyone close to the individual(s) that are missing, but in a different way.
H. No matter how hard you try or how much money you have, not all cases of missing/abductions can or will be solved. It doesn’t matter if you’re a “Psychic” or not, you will not or cannot usurp Spiritual control over an individual. That’s why some psychics cannot break a case or even families with billions of dollars cannot get the answers they desire since sometimes the answers can only be found on a spiritual level.
I. The individual Spiritual lessons that are gained are ALWAYS greater than the physical loss of any person. Even if it’s hard to accept this premise, the only way you can understand it is from a Spiritual point of view. We often and usually forget why we’re here in the first place which is to achieve Spiritual enlightenment and fulfillment through natural experiences.
J. Not everyone that is missing or abducted is in heaven after they die and they can be earthbound because of the trauma they endured or because they chose to stay to help family members or guide people trying to solve their cases.
K. There are times when a “Psychic” knows where a person that is missing/abducted can be found but is instructed NOT to reveal that information either by Spirit (or the missing person in Spirit). I’ve been involved in at least one case where I knew where someone was buried and have personally met the perpetrator in his own home, but I was instructed by Spirit not get involved for my own safety. I know many with egos will say; but you could do this, or do that, or tell someone. Yes, I could, but when Spirit TELLS me NOT to do something I don’t argue with Angels, that’s also the difference between a lay person and a disciple. You don’t have an ego when you work with Angels or you’ll find yourself getting into trouble very fast.
L. Most people who want to be “Psychic” don’t realize the sacrifices and danger that Professional Psychics put themselves in working missing persons cases. A perpetrator can easily kill a Psychic just out of fear that that person may know something. It doesn’t matter if the Psychic is right or wrong, we put our lives in harm’s way just to work with you and help answer your questions.
M. It doesn’t matter whether you’re male, female, black, white, Asian, Latino, young, old, rich or poor, the tragedy of the experience is the same in every community around the world. Even animals feel the pain or loss when something unexpected happens to their young or siblings. There will always be sadness and loss when someone is tragically taken away from us when we least expect it.
N. It is normal to feel bitter, hate, remorse, rejection, contempt, fear, embarrassment, isolation, pain, bewilderment, depression, suspicion, regret, alone, misunderstood, abandoned, and out-of-control when something like this happens to you or someone you know. All of these emotions are normal until you release your emotions from the issue and look for help from God. I don’t care if you’re Religious or Spiritual you HAVE to have Spiritual intervention to get past the negative emotions that are usually attached to any case. The answers and peace will only come to you if you remove yourself from the equation and allow God/Spirit to work THROUGH you!
O. In order to be truly successful working these types of cases you have to suspend your personal judgment about the perpetrators. We’re suppose to be Spiritual Warriors and not get involved or mired down in emotional events when we do God’s work. Even though I agree that there is no place horrible enough to put someone who kills or harms someone else, it’s not my place to play God and judge anyone regardless of what they do. Part of the healing process for family members is linked to this tenet and complete healing cannot be realized without accepting this rule.
Now that I’ve laid out some of the tenets of what happens when someone is missing/abducted I can address the other issues surrounding these types of cases.
Have you ever noticed that most people who have experienced these types of cases usually become advocates for survivor or victims right groups? Most people know John Walsh and the “America’s Most Wanted” series and his commitment to help warn others about abductions and to help apprehend criminals is one way to understand how someone can learn from their own experiences and turn a personal tragedy into personal triumph.
While everyone will not be as visually successful as John Walsh and become a household name, many will quietly focus their attention starting specific groups like battered women’s groups, exploited children groups, changing legislation concerning victims right to address their injuries at sentencing etc.
Many many people work to overcome their personal injuries and to help protect others from experiencing the same thing and to bring about awareness on that subject. This is just one of the many ways that the “Sum” of all the lessons of any missing/abduction case overrides the lesson to the victim.
I’ve seen people who were selfish and self-centered become more loving and humble after a tragedy because they realized that they believed they somehow mistreated or ignored the needs of a victim and took them for granted. After they discovered that they had wronged that person they automatically changed their priorities in life and either tried to make it up by helping others or by making sure that they didn’t take anything else for granted in their life.
On the Spiritual level many things associated with missing/person can be explained. I know of one case where someone experienced a loss of one of his parents and found out that in another life he was the one that went away and caused his parents to have to suffer his loss and worry for a lifetime about what happened to him.
He was also born on a holiday that others used to remember the soldiers that gave their lives for his freedom. In all of his past lives he was the one that went missing and left his family and friends behind to worry and feel the pain over his loss. In this life he had to learn what it was like to be left behind and not know what happened to someone who he loved that disappeared without a trace. He spent his whole life studying the issue and accepting his lessons so he wouldn’t have to repeat them in any future lives and hoped the “Law of Grace” would apply for his past selfishness so he could be delivered from any similar experiences in the future.
I’ve experienced cases where the lesson was for a family that had bitter rivalries to come together and work out their differences because of a tragedy. These tragedies can MAKE people do things that they normally wouldn’t do for themselves, whether it’s having to deal with emotional issues, drugs, relationships, abuse, mental illness, alcoholism,depression, or any number of contributing factors.
From my experience the overriding reason I’ve seen that a person goes missing is to teach those left behind to have patience and to learn to have faith. I know that is a hard thing to accept but patience is one thing that a family member doesn’t want to hear but they have no choice in the matter except to wait, wait, and wait.
We all have to learn that we’re not in control of every situation and we must surrender to a higher power. The situation becomes a self-imposed exile to accept some things that we normally wouldn’t while looking for answers in places that we don’t want to look.
I’ve seen many people go their whole life looking for answers for mysteries in their lives that never came to them and sometimes only after they died was someone able to see the truth in their case.
Sometimes help can be right in front of you and you won’t even know it because it wasn’t the right time. I remember once when a very close friend of mine waited 3 years before telling me about a Psychic friend of hers that may have been able to help me in my search for my father. She couldn’t understand why she hadn’t thought about him sooner and later apologized for waiting to tell me about him. That person eventually became a very close friend of mine and helped mentor me past the negative emotions I was carrying. When I was Spiritually ready the teacher appeared!
In most cases, if a person intentionally ran away then the contributing factors in their disappearance can be personally painful because someone is left with trying to figure out what they did wrong. I can speak from experience on the issue and state that my parents didn’t do anything wrong! I was just hell-bent on being independent and at the ripe old age of 6 and thought I could make it on my own.
At that age I didn’t understand the dangers of being on the streets alone and never had any fear that something bad would happen to me. Lucky for me I was discovered while getting my supplies from a 7-11 store after a clerk saw me raking boxes of candy into a suitcase. The cops thought it was funny but my parents weren’t amused to say the least…I had to wait at least 5 more years to pass before I did it again and after I was able to sit from the last experience.
Most children that run away believe that someone will take care of them and make life better somehow either with a boyfriend/girlfriend or a romantic opportunity. When I ran away from home at 15 and traveled to Riverside, Ca. all the way from Alabama, I believed in a notion that because I was so wonderful that hippies would take me in (this was the 70′s) and help me survive.
It never crossed my mind that I would be in danger or that people would try to harm me in any way. I was naive and simple-minded to think that all people were good, kind, and loving and I would be able to live a life of freedom and happiness….watching too much Andy Griffith may have contributed to that thinking?
My own naivety almost cost me my life when I was 15 and I know that many children that run away today meet a greater danger than I ever experienced. In those cases it is extremely difficult to find them because sometimes you don’t know where they went as opposed to where they were. I ran way to California and didn’t know one person there but went anyway after stopping in Texas and deciding I didn’t want to stay there. Not one person on earth knew where I was at that time because I made up my mind at in a split second to go to California, just think about how I could have been lost in the darkness on any street or car. I hitchhiked across California and that could have easily decided my fate by itself.
I can’t think of how many times over the years I’ve given strangers a ride home after seeing someone drunk or stoned in a bar or in a parking lot because I feared for their safety. I’ve always tried to use my experiences to help young teens in an effort to try to impact them and make them think more about what CAN happen to someone if they are irresponsible..
In cases where someone is abducted the issues are wide and varied when it comes to reasons and explanations. If a person is fortunate enough to survive an abduction then they are immediately changed from the moment they were abducted to the time they are reunited with their loved ones. The individual’s life lessons are unique to them and those around them. Sometimes people who have been assaulted remind the rest of us how delicate life can be and how we need to be grounded when in dangerous environments like clubs, out late a night, traveling in foreign countries or placing too much trust in others when we drink or do drugs. It’s always a delicate balance to teach children to be safe versus being paranoid and to err on the side of caution.
When a small child or baby is abducted the issue is a lot more heart breaking since we tend to project our own fears and experiences into the equation and that creates a lot more emotion around these particular cases. We always think about how innocent a person is or how their youth was stolen from them. While that is always the case, we sometimes forget that God has taken care of them in a special way that protects them from pain and suffering. Most children never know what happened to them and therefore were spared a lot of pain. We all feel helpless and small when it comes to these types of cases and the emotions and attachments never completely go away.
I’ve learned through experience that trying to judge a perpetrator can inhibit a case and actually prevent closure. I can see this with some of the high-profile cases in the news today. I know it’s natural to want to lash out at someone or something because of your anger and frustration but it can blind some people to the facts and distract them from ever getting to the truth. I’ve been there and know what I’m talking about since I pushed so hard at times that people weren’t willing to work with me or help me in any way.
It took a lot to get me to settle down and listen instead of talking, that was a crucial element in learning what I needed to know. For many people who are looking for their loved ones, they are talking too much and listening too little, that includes listening to your higher-self. You cannot listen to you higher-self and be outwardly over emotional at the same time!
I know many people will want to know what I mean by “Higher-Self”, this is the part of you that many refer to as your Soul, your consciousness, gut feelings, intuition, or listening to your Angels. It’s that part of you that you notice when you are still and listening with your heart and mind. It takes a lot of practice to shut down your emotions long enough to accept any new information the Angels may be trying to give you.
This is one of the reasons I mentioned earlier that being judgmental or emotional can cause trouble in finding out the truth. Everyone has the same ability to do for themselves anything that I can do for them or any other Psychic for that matter! The difference is that most Psychics have learned how and when to listen to their Higher-selves and control their negative/positive energy better.
Some family members are very stubborn and it will take a lot longer to control their anger or hostility and therefore gain meaningful progress in their case. There are instances where I will NOT work with some family members because they are too emotional or negative and that inhibits progress in a case.
It doesn’t matter if I tell them this or not since the anger is so deeply rooted that I have no choice but to wait for them to grow Spiritually or to heal. I know many people out there that work these cases or are in the healing arts will agree with what I saying…It’s not that we CAN’T work with these people, it’s more about “why should we work with these people when they won’t help themselves”?
One area that I guess I need to address is the “what happened to them while they were abducted” issue. This is one of the areas where forgiveness or non judgment comes into play. If you are blinded by terror, hate, abuse, retribution, or vindictiveness, then you are on the wrong end of the healing and getting on with your life. While I’m not talking about ignoring all these issues, I referring to getting PAST these issues.
I know exactly how it feels to want to inflict as much harm as you can on a perpetrator, but it’s not necessarily your place to do so every time you get a chance. In fact, it can blind you from the truth and delay the healing process. I want to make it clear I’m not talking about turning your back and ignoring the truth, but rather try to understand that there’s a time and place for everything. If you believe in the “Laws of Karma” then you understand what I’m trying to say.
The very first time Jesus came to me in a vision was when I was upset at what people had done to me. Jesus didn’t ask me if I wanted to kiss his robe or find my father. He asked me if I forgave those people who caused me harm? I though it was odd that the very first question he asked me was that. I didn’t hesitate to answer him with a “Yes” and my pain immediately went away and I felt safe.
I’ve recently learned that other people have had a similar experience when dealing with visions of Jesus and he asked them the very same thing! It’s like a test of faith or something to do with a persons Spiritual growth.
In one case I was involved in, a wife had to make the decision on whether she wanted the prosecutor to pursue the death penalty for a man who murdered her husband in a hideous way, when talking to her she told me that she made the decision not to pursue the death penalty because she wanted to use it as a bargaining chip to get the man to tell the police about other cases he’d been involved in.
In a twist of fate the man left some dangerous chemicals near a schoolhouse and he told the Police where they were located due to the agreement with the victim not to pursue the death penalty. It turned out that something bad could have happened to the children if the perpetrator had not confessed to his involvement in other cases. This is just one way to look at the big picture Spiritually instead of being lost in negative emotions.
To answer the question of “If you’re truly Psychic you should be able to find anyone“, I’d like to say that just because we’re Psychic doesn’t mean that we’re GOD! We are only a vessel or conduit for information or healing from the Angels. That doesn’t mean that we know everything or anything for that matter. We don’t chose the information that comes to us, we just listen for what we’re given by the Angels.
I for one don’t know anything and that’s why I can be a better vessel or conduit for information. I don’t use my energy to find someone or help someone, I use the energy or consciousness of the person looking for information or from Spirit. That’s why I stated that it’s necessary for them to be grounded and open to Spirit.
Even though I can use my own energy to help someone I’m cautious to heed the Angels and do what they say, I do God’s work, not my own! I don’t get involved in other people’s issues since whatever someone else is experiencing is not for me to experience. I don’t need anymore negative baggage in my life and only assist others in removing their own. Anyone that tells you that THEY are creating or doing something for you through their own design is headed in the wrong direction.
I only do, or say what the Angels tell me to do or say. If I knew everything and could make everyone happy I wouldn’t be here on earth anymore. Even though a lot of what I’ve tried to explain sounds simple, it’s not! It’s very very complicated for the average Joe or Vicky Sue out there and I would have to write a book to do justice on the subject.
If anyone tells you that they enjoy being Psychic and it’s a gift all the time then they aren’t learning anything. While it can be interesting at times to be called a Psychic (a word I don’t care for), it’s a heck of a lot of responsibility to see and know that other people are suffering all around you and you can’t help all of them or yourself half the time. It’s no picnic to be able to know that someone close to you will die soon and you can’t tell them. It’s hard to see thousands of people who WILL die in the future and not be able to stop it…
We are all Spiritual Warriors that were placed here to help those that can’t always find their way and to bring healing into a troubled world. If you feel normal, plain and are bored I would trade places with you anytime and let someone else carry the torch for a while……But I know I have to carry the torch since many others cannot!
In a word, if you want to help find out why someone is missing/abducted all you have to do is “Surrender”, that means surrender your heart and Soul to God and listen for the answers.
There are always Angels out there for anyone to hear and know but you have to surrender your ego and negative emotions. The lessons and answers will continue to be given to those with “eyes to see and ears to hear” the rest of your life.
With Love and Light!
