Kala speaks with Mary Ann Winkowski, the real GhostWhisperer, on whom the TV show Ghost Whisperer is based. Mary Ann Winkowski talks to dead people—she sees them all the time, everywhere. Her earliest memories include speaking with spirits of the deceased as if they were living people and helping these entities come to terms with their unfinished business on earth and cross over to the other side. In WHEN GHOSTS SPEAK: UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD OF EARTHBOUND SPIRITS (Grand Central Publishing mass market; October 2009) Mary Ann shares a lifetime’s worth of information about the spirit world and reveals her often surprising interactions with some memorable ghosts. Mary Ann shows the human side of the paranormal—stories about ghosts from the ghosts’ perspectives—and teaches us how we can coexist peaceably with the spirits that surround us.
Join Kala and Mary Ann as they discuss topics from Mary Ann’s book including:
The Truth About Ghosts—they do not “draw” energy from your TV or other electrical devices, they do not have ‘super powers’, they cannot walk through you and you cannot walk through them, and earthbound ghosts know that they are dead.
Where Ghosts Congregate—contrary to popular belief, cemeteries are not the most haunted spots on earth. They will gather anywhere they are likely to find sources of emotional energy (think shopping malls, theaters, amusement parks, hospital emergency rooms)
The White Light—this manifestation of positive energy provides an opportunity for ghosts ‘stuck’ on earth to cross over. Mary Ann is able to create it on the spot, and tells her readers how they can begin to access the special powers of this potent force.
Why Some Souls Stay Behind—while spirits are meant to go into the Light once they leave their bodies, they often stay here for many reasons including attachments to places or things, fear of final judgment or punishment, seeking revenge or pursuing justice, or staying to protect the living
Funerals—Mary Ann shares what ghosts do at their own wakes or funerals, what she does at these events, reveals the most common questions from the living to the deceased, and discloses the most common complaints that she hears from the dead.
Are you Alone?—Mary Ann discusses the ways you may intentionally or unintentionally attract an earthbound spirit and details the signs that a spirit is around you
How to Deal with Ghosts—tips and strategies for protecting yourself from the influence of earthbound spirits (for example, do not talk to or yell at the spirits as you are giving them exactly what they want—your attention and energy)
