When Ben finally "crossed over" nearly a year after his physical death he was delighted to discover that nothing bad happened. He had assumed he would forever be cut off from the earth and the people and things he loves. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. What he discovered is that "crossing over" consists mainly of disconnecting from the earth as a source of energy and reconnecting to The Source or The Big Light or the All That Is. He finds that he is now free to move about on the physical plane (as well as everywhere else) and continue his efforts to communicate with loved ones and admirers who are grieving his loss. He still hangs out with me. He says he is now my "official guide." And he still answers questions for his fans on Face Book and adds blogs to his website.
Now, however, Ben has found an additional avocation. Since he was so reluctant about crossing over when it was his time, he enjoys helping other souls who are confused or frightened or just plain stubborn. He calls himself a "crossing guard" and shows me images of himself as a school crossing guard escorting children across a street. Or a boy scout helping an old lady. (When he does something like that, I try to find a picture on the internet that matches his image.)
The first soul he helped to cross over was David the WW1 soldier who was wracked with guilt over failing to carry out his part in a suicide pact. You can read about David here: /david-the-ww1-soldier.html
Since then Ben has helped a Step-father Who was Going to Extremes to get attention,
A Woman Who Was Haunting Herself,_
And a young man who died a Sudden, Violent Death./violent-death.html
We'll get those stories up as soon as we can. Meanwhile you can read about Ben and some Gold Rush Ghosties here.
