My son has been experiencing strange things in our home. Last night was the worst so far. He seen a man walk around our living room, sit beside him, play with his hair and said hi to him.
Apparently this person (spirit) has been trying to talk to him for a while now but he wants nothing to do with it.H e had a panic attack. I just want to know if he is a medium and he does not want any of it so how would I go about helping him? Thank you.— Tiffany
Thank you for confirming your son is 13. What arrives for me on this is that there are some earth problems to look into first, before you deal with the mediumship.
There are some other things going on, such as: he feels sad, he's overwhelmed by school, he's unhappy, he's stressed, maybe he's depressed, he feels he doesn't fit in. Even things like bullying, taunting, abuse are showing up.
So, first seek to find out what's going on for him, especially with school and outside the home. You might want to have him talk to a therapist.
Then, after that's opened up and illuminated, you can look at the mediumship. I would suggest my book Your Psychic Child, which is fine for him to read as well.
Hi Sara, my name is Alec. I need your help. I have a friend and I'm really worried about her. She seems really depressed, like, REALLY depressed. I don't know what to do. She said the energy her parents give off bugs her. And even though I'm not sure if I believe her, do you think that could be causing her depression? If so, how do I help her? And if its something else, what do I do? How do you help a teenage girl get through depression? Especially if the energy from her parents is causing it? Worried for a friend, Alec
I will answer your question more indepth on the radio show, but for now: your friend needs professional therapy, such as a counselor or psychologist.
It is nice to be a friend, but sometimes you can't help them—and you can harm yourself by trying to help.
I don't feel that her parents' energy is the only cause of her depression; I think she has some other things that are going on, and working with a professional is what will help.
It's normal for teenage years to be emotionally rough for a lot of people. But this are really her issues, and while it's nice to be a friend, you also need to make sure she is not bringing you down too much.
You can't walk her path for her.
On the other hand, if you feel she is so depressed that she is suicidal, please have her call a suicide hotline.
Or if she won't do that, please call it yourself, and they will help you get some resources.
Thank you for writing.

I have been meaning to ask you this question for quite some time. I keep thinking I can "see" the answer myself, but I believe I am too immersed in the situation.
I live on a small island, in a beautiful straw bale house powered by solar and wind. It is on 30 acres. I kept the house and land as part of a divorce a few years ago. The problem is the upkeep of the land. Especially the MOWING. This isn't just mowing a lawn. This is mowing a couple acres of pasture grass on uneven ground with a walk-behind field and brush mower.
Each year I think I have lined someone up to help me, and each year they immediately fall behind and realize the scope of the job and bale on me. I then spend the rest of the summer MOWING…as well as tending a garden and an orchard and all the maintenance that has to do with a rural environment. The anxiety around managing these task begins to build all fall and winter. The overwhelm lasts all Spring and Summer. I keep finding myself saying two very contradictory statements "I absolutely love my house and my studio" and "this is too much for me". I also keep hearing the lyrics to the song "Should I stay or should I go" by The Clash.
A side note, my home is very small. So offering a place to live for work exchange is not an option, unless I was to build on. But that said, I am very private. My home is like a piece of art, and very fragile. It and all the alternative energy systems doesn't make it conducive to rent. Then there is the fact I bought it for 2x it's current accessed value in order to keep it. So selling it will mean taking an enormous $ loss. I also am not the type to just "let it go"and live in high grass. Did I mention…I am allergic to grass!
What do you sense? Thanks —Naomi
I do see you letting this property go, but not yet. You aren't quite done there. Often we find ourselves in places and spaces where we are simply meant to be—sometimes we are meant to be somewhere because a place and all its inhabitants: spirits, trees, animals, etc are actually healing and realligning us. We are meant to be in this place, so that we can be more effective in our work in the world; or so that we can grow in our soul understanding. Sometimes we need to stay put in one place long enough to create a feeling of centeredness and home. Sometimes we are meant to be stewards of the land/space.
In your case, I think that you are destined to stay for a while–not too long, perhaps another year or so. The place supports you in the work you do. It is allowing you to grow and expand.
Knowing that you won't be selling or moving for a little while, allows you to relax a bit. I think the relaxation will also allow you to attract someone to help. The guidance is: it's not a job you should be doing physically yourself. Someone else should be doing that. Letting go of the idea that you're going to be the one doing it, will allow someone to show up to do it.
I see the idea of someone coming to live on the land, as caretaker. They don't live with you, but they live on the land in their own area, and in exchange they care for the land. That's one future possibility.
The other is that you sell and move —but not yet.
Finally... do some traveling, next year or so. See how that feels. As you pull up roots for short times, you will be experimenting with how the energy feels when you are away from home, and at home. This is part of the entire decision of moving—knowing what you might lose, and what you might gain from moving. You won't be able to make any decision until you experience this in real life, by journeying to other places.
