Afterlife Chronicles Radio Show (3)
There have been several episodes of the Afterlife Chronicles Radio Show since its October 8, 2020 debut. However, I've decided to start a weekly blog / weekly show summary. I have also done this for Haunted Voices Radio. To listen to past episodes of the Afterlife Chronicles and Beyond, visit this link: Afterlife Chronicles and Beyond. You can also visit its Podbean site at https://afterlifechronicles.podbean.com/ and its Facebook site at http://www.facebook.com/afterlifechroniclesandbeyond.
On this week's episode (080521) of the Afterlife Chronicles, I welcome friend and colleague Lon Strickler - Fortean researcher, author and blogger at phantoms and monsters - http://www.phantomsandmonsters.com
I have been a guest on Lon's radio show a few times and it was wonderful to return the favor and have him on my show. Discussion of cryptids and cryptozoology are popular topics in the supernatural field. For years, Lon has been researching both ghosts / hauntings as well as various cryptids, interdimensional beings and creatures - Bigfoot, Mothman, Black-Eyed Kids, winged creatures, the Dogman, among many others.
During the episode, Lon elaborated on his journey as a paranormal researcher and gave some spine-tingling first-person accounts of Bigfoot and the Dogman. He even discussed the sightings of the winged humanoid creature that's seen near O'Hare Airport in Chicago. He summarized the many sightings people have had of this mysterious being, including some unique behavioral patterns it has.
Not everyone believes in cryptids, UFO encounters and alien species. When there are so many similar sightings among people from all walks of life, it almost begs us to further explore these unknown phenomena. I am of the belief that there is some sort of nexus between ghosts, spirits, aliens, cryptids, the Fae people, interdimensional beings, etc. More and more people are encountering paranormal phenomena, partly because we are more open to it as a society. I do believe there are other elusive reasons, some that us mortals are not yet permitted to know.
But, this doesn't stop us from exploring and wondering!
On this week's episode, I welcome back Kristina Bloom - psychic medium and spiritual advisor.
Kristina was gracious to offer a free book giveaway of Wisdom for the Age of Ascension. During the episode, she even read some excerpts from the book.
Kristina talked about the importance of meditation and offered some unique tips for practicing it. She also offers free meditation sessions on her website at http://www.kristinabloom.com
Kristina also elaborated on what spiritual ascension is and the signs and symptoms that a person is actually going through it.
We also talked about the symbolism of COVID-19 and how it's not just a "virus." I agree with Kristina when she says that "ascension is basically what this planet is going through. Do you think COVID-19 was just aboud a virus? It's about getting people to stop and getting people to take a deep breath and focus on what is important..."
There are so many systems that are in need of change - education, health care, financial institutions. Until we learn our lessons, it is going to keep coming up in various ways.
Kristina's thoughts on the symbolism of this pandemic mirror the blog I wrote about COVID-19 and how it was needed to try and re-establish homeostasis among humanity.
Also, a huge congratulations to Kristina on her brand new radio show "Be the Change" on the WLTK-db network, which debuts on September 7th 2021.
On this episode of the Afterlife Chronicles Radio Show, I go solo and talk all about the RMS Queen Mary, a legendary ocean liner that's been moored in Long Beach, California since 1967. Discussion topics of this episode, include: 1) the City of Long Beach's full operational control of the ship - the first time since 1978; 2) historical significance and 3) resident energies and paranormal encounters. Being that this is a new series, there will be many more episodes with more discussion on historical events, resident energies and paranormal phenomena.
You can listen to the episode at https://wltkdb.com/on-demand-video, https://afterlifechronicles.podbean.com/ or on the Afterlife Chronicle's YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxTQhxNbXH_-MhklMy79_Ew
For those that know me, they are hugely aware of my love affair with the Queen Mary. In the year 2000, I was first introduced to the ship in the back seat of my friend's car as we were heading to a 3-day cruise on Carnival. When my eyes first met the ship, I said to myself, "I will be back someday." That day eventually came in 2005. When I first embarked on the vessel - on A Deck to be exact, I felt an immediate soul connection to the ship. I felt like I had been there before even though it was my first time. Many people, including myself, have said that I may have a past-life connection to the Queen Mary.
Since 2005, I have been actively researching the ship's renowned history and paranormal phenomena. It has somehow earned me a seat as one of the people most knowledgeable of her history, resident spirits and paranormal events. History and the paranormal are best friends with a dear kinship; in regards to the "Mary," both of these intertwine beautifully.
I have had some incredible paranormal encounters in various areas of the liner. I have been lucky to participate in numerous paranormal case studies aboard her decks. Blending my love of history, writing and paranormal research, I wrote three books about the ship, which are all available aboard in her gift stores as well as via online retailers. They are, Haunted Queen of the Seas: The Living Legend of the RMS Queen Mary, Spirited Queen Mary: Her Haunted Legend and RMS Queen Mary: Voices from Her Voyages.
I have presented about the Queen Mary at paranormal conferences, business events and libraries. Additionally, it has been an honor to discuss the iconic ocean liner on radio shows and television programs.
Long Live the Queen!
