I'm trying. And I appreciate. I'm really struggling. I can't forgive myself. I miss him too much.
This may sound really negative and I apologize in advance, but I've watched the video a couple of times now and I'm having a really hard time believing in this since I can see your fingers and hand making the pendulum move.
I'm a bit of a skeptic by nature, but I want nothing more in the world than to believe in this sort of communication. To be honest, I'm not sure what I believe anymore. Is there a God? Is there an afterlife? CAN we communicate with our deceased loved ones? I want nothing more than to believe I'll see my mother and father again, but I don't know anymore.
Anyway, sorry to be a Debbie Downer. I just don't "buy" it.
You don't sound negative per say... you just sound like someone who is wanting someone else to give them proof and do the work for you instead of you finding your own truth by yourself.. we cannot sit here and hold your hand and give you the proof.. We can walk this general path together but only you an walk YOUR path on your own and figure it out for yourself... We cannot spoon feed you the answers and I am sorry if that comes off harsh but Carol is not trying to con anybody here what so ever. Why would Carol come on here and tell you this if she wasn't telling you the truth if she is not:
A. Charging money for this
B. Looking for attention
C. Posting multiple threads shoving her beliefs and messages down our throats.
You want the answers.. you have to seek and find them for yourself. We can help you but we cannot give them to you. You see her hands and fingers moving and I don't. I am the first one who would call someone out on their lies and I for one do not see it here. If I did then I would say it. Period.
Although it is Daughter Dearest's post today that called my attention to this thread, as I read through it I had a thought about some of the earlier posts about waiting for some period of time between visits to a medium or communication with the deceased. It seems to me that, especially if one is able to establish some connection with a "lost" loved one, seeking further communication or information or just the desire to remain in the company of someone who has passed on, might become a bit obsessive, and actually get in the way of the grieving process. I'm not saying this happens regularly, or necessarily applies to the individuals who posted here. But I can imagine someone becoming so focused on their deceased loved ones, that they might be distracted from the loved ones who remain here, or from their own needs or their own purpose in this life.
The recommendation to wait for a bit before contacting them again might, then, be intended as a gentle nudge back toward the survivor's "real" life and present duties, opportunities and relationships. Remaining too engaged in communication with the dead may be a way of avoiding the healthy and necessary process of mourning.

Hello again Roberta (and all)!
Again, I didn't mean to sound like a Negative Nancy and I do apologize if I sounded insulting to Carol (and Mikey). That wasn't my intention nor will it ever be. I'm usually not one to stir up trouble (haha), I just find I'm questioning everything nowadays.
Yes, poeticblue, you're right in that I'm searching for answers. I have been for quite some time now. I just don't know what to believe!
I wish I could just pick up the phone and call my deceased loved ones on the other side. That would make my search so much easier and answer so many questions! *sigh*
I don't think you've insulted or offended anyone here, we are prety open to opinions and ideas, and never critical of anyone seeking their personal truth. We all walk our own paths of enlightenment and acceptance and only time and opportunity will give you the answers you seek. Personally I have no doubts as to our eternal existance, and that is through sufficient personal validations. I don't feel as though I need the detailed in's and out's of the Afterlife, Levels, Summerlands etc, just knowing that we live on after death is enough for me now to focus on living this life to the fullest and doing what I can to help others live theirs.
