Warm wishes and greetings from Vermont.
I am taking another month for writing and savoring the shortening days... and the first snows. The bears, for the most part, seem to have settled in for their long winter nap; the porcupine and deer are still out and about, along with the whitening snowshoe hares.
As for hauntings at the castle... well, the other night, I opened the front door, and a shadow rushed directly in as if it were getting out of the cold. It was unexpected, I yipped in surprise (so did Grey). Another evening, while heading out for a walk beneath the stars, a chair toppled over (no wind). This time I screamed in surprise, Grey and I ran back into the house. And the latest evening of adventure, I went outside; all was quiet except for a very clear and distinct knocking. I just stood there thinking, where is this knocking coming from? Because it started out in the forest, I thought could it be a woodpecker in the dark of a sub-zero night looking for treats? I listened, hoping to hear the owls talking. The air remained silent except for the knocking. The knocking that was much closer now, could it be a small woodland animal knocking at the door of a friend's house? My breath held when the knocking moved again, much closer this time. It was coming from inside my car.
I slowly approached the car and listened to the clear and loud knocking; it wasn't under the car, or in the engine. It was knocking on the window from inside. And there was no one in there. I went back into the house quietly and got my phone... this is what I picked up. (Listen closely from the beginning, and you will hear it, a series of 4 knocks, behind the click sound of me hitting my phone)
Do I Need a Medium to Get Signs from the Other Side of the Veil?
Not necessarily, because you are already connected.
But it can be helpful to talk with someone about your questions and sometimes to receive certain messages.
Common Forms of After Death Communications
sensing a presence
Have you ever had a feeling of a being or agency that is not heard or seen. It is one of the most unusual experiences a person can have a felt presence, and yet also a feeling that will be familiar to many. Sometimes referred to as sensed presences or extracampine (beyond the possible physical sensory field) hallucinations, such experiences are described in a wide variety of sources and contexts, including survival situations, bereavement, sleep paralysis, and neurological disorder.
hearing a voice
Although not one of the most common forms of ADC, but the voices or sounds are unmistakable - they are not voices telling you what to do, but typically are one or two words in length if speaking, or a short sound (that can feel like a long time if you are not ready for it). For example, if a mother had a child pass away, she might hear, "Mom," as clear as a bell. Other common sounds can be laughter, buzzing, or even immediate surrounding pressure changes.
feeling a touch
This type of ADC can be magnificent, as though someone placed their hand on your shoulder or arm. You can feel the weight of the touch. It could be heavy or feather light. Commonly it is a soft brushing touch that may be on the back of your hand, on your cheek or foot. It is normal to respond by flicking it away as you would think it was a bug landing on you. But sometimes the touches can last up to a minute or longer, and you will know someone is there.
Taking place in both the physical and spiritual world. Spiritual world meaning in your third eye.
An apparition can come as a wisp of energy, shapeless, all the way to an imprinting of former physical form.
This type of showing may be as part of an echo of former life where they may repeat patterns over and over. For example walking in the garden.
The appearance could come just prior to dying as the spirit prepares to depart. "I saw Aunt Aggie at the foot of my bed last night."
appearances / visions
Taking place in the physical world. This communication style can be expressed as a moving of items, cloud formation, electrical manipulation (ex. turning on and off lights). Physical phenomenon is a natural phenomenon involving the physical properties of matter and energy.
Many times these are signs showing you they are here, and thinking of you.
Taking place in the “alpha state” of consciousness, when you are very relaxed – like when you’re on the edge of falling asleep, in a dream state, waking up, meditating, or praying.
They may talk to you, walk with you, show you things while you are in these states of relaxation.
Sometimes this can happen while you are awake where it would be seen in your "third eye."
sleep-state / dreams

What is a metaphysician?
A metaphysician is a philosopher whose area of study or expertise is metaphysics: the study of the fundamental nature of reality and existence itself. ‘Meta-‘ means beyond or transcending; so meta-physical means that which lies beyond, underlies or transcends the physical realm/world/reality. The word "metaphysics" comes from two Greek words that, together, mean "after or behind or among [the study of] the natural.
Metaphysicians tackle questions that lie beyond or behind those capable of being tackled by the physical sciences. For this reason metaphysics is a branch of philosophy that examines the fundamental natures of realities, including the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between possibility and actuality.
A metaphysician is either a philosopher whose area of expertise is the study of the fundamental nature of reality and existence and/or, more esoterically, A practicing metaphysician works with the principles and powers and ‘things’ that underlie it, especially the mind or psyche.
