June 25, 2005:
First off, I want to thank
Soul Brother Kevin for allowing us to come into
the studio & for giving us the chance to
discuss a subject that is as taboo as Mediums
& the afterlife. It was a great experience
and can't wait for a chance to do it again.
With that said, the idea of
Psychics & Mediums have always intrigued
me. I think 99.9% of the so called palm readers
& Psychics that you see around town offering
one hour sessions are full of crap! Not just
any crap, but 100% grade A, pure as mud, straight
from the farm, BULL-CRAP! I don't mean to take
away from their art, because that's what it
is mainly, an extension of the performing arts,
but as far as connecting to someone in the afterlife
and being able to tell a living person what
is going to happen down the road...CRAP!!! No
other way to spell it, but C-R-A-P!!!!
Ahhh...but what about the other
0.01% of the Psychics& Mediums out there?
The ones you see on TV shows like psychic detectives
and other reality based shows???? How can I
Well, half of the 0.01% is
luck, and a half of the luck isn't just luck,
but is good old fashioned research and intuition.
Here's an example: A woman went missing...uhhh...it's
probably a male with some kind of shady past
with a sexual diversion and he dumped her in
the woods somewhere...DUHHH!
Think about darts....If you
throw 100 darts at a dart board you're bound
to hit the target a couple times!!!! No one
pays attention when you miss, but when you hit
that bullseye, everyone cheers.
But still, that leaves 0.005%
of those that claim to have some kind of gift,
as unexplained. Those are the people I want
to meet! Those are the Psychics I want to challenge
and test...and I did.
Susan Thompson was the Medium
that I chose to come in on the show with us.
I had met her preciously a couple times, and
from what I was hearing, she was one of the
0.005% I wanted to challenge. While waiting
in the green room she mentioned that I had 3
spirits following me, and by the time we got
on air, a fourth had joined the party. The four
were as follows:
- A Motherly Figure.
- A Father Figure.
- A Shadowy male Figure.
- A friend from high school.
The first spirit didn't really
mean a whole lot to me. I haven't seen my mother
in almost 20 years and have no clue where she
is, but I don't think she's dead. However the
message associated would make sense if it was
her. Susan said that this motherly figure really
cared for me and said "Things are the way
they were meant to be". Now without getting
too personal that would make sense, except for
the care part. My mother didn't care enough
in life, why would she care in death? Besides,
I doubt she's even dead. As far as anyone else
that could be...I lost a great grandmother in
2004. I wasn't too close to her so I doubt she'd
be trying to make contact.
As we move on, the Father figure
hit a little more close to home. When we were
in the green room Susan asked if the name Martin
meant anything to me. I didn't want to say too
much, I just told her it was the name of my
dog. Which it is, but it was also my father's
name. My Father died when I was eight years
old, and if there was any chance of this stuff
being real, he'd be the one I'd want to talk
to. She said that this fatherly figure wanted
to tell me to "Live my Dream." and
that there is a fork in a path ahead. That's
rather vague, but she goes on to say that I
am a lot like he use to be. I have his humor
& compassion. I don't remember much of my
dad, but my grandparents (his parents) always
talk about how I take right after him in everything
I do. That was a little closer and a lot less
vague. Susan then went on to say that this father
figure sees 2 possibly 3 children in my future
and that I will be a great Dad. I will be able
to do things with them that he was not able
to do with me. That was pretty much dead on.
I've always wanted, since my father died, to
have a son and be the father that my dad never
got the chance to be.
Finally, the last two spirits
I have no clue about. One was lurking in the
background, she said, and didn't really come
up...and the other was a friend from high school,
but I can't think of any friends that killed
themselves or died.
reading as a whole you might say isn't too impressive.
I would tend to agree with you, unless I find
out that my mother really is dead, and her dying
words were of regret, but I really don't think
that is the case. I am slightly impressed however
with the accuracy of the father part, but realize
there were no concrete facts. I would have liked
to have heard something that only we shared...but
Now at this point I would normally
be blasting the subject under investigation,
and some of you faithful readers are wondering
why I haven't started it five paragraphs ago.
Well, while we were in the greenroom she did
mention the name Martin, but she also mentioned
something else. She asked if the symbols E1
or E2 meant anything to anyone. She said there
was a spirit there, not really connected to
anyone that was called E1 or E2... We all kinda
shrugged our shoulders at the time and dismissed
it. I did however know the meaning of E1 or
E2, but for what ever reason, decided not to
go into it, at least not in the greenroom.
A few days later I E-mailed
Susan asking about what that E1 or E2 was about.
The following is a series of responses from
I don't know what an E1 or E2 is. Did someone
die suddenly? I received the feeling of some
sort of impact, like sudden death, here one
minute and on the other side the next minute.
This spirit doesn't think that it was their
time to die, like it was too soon to leave
the earth plane. That's what I got. It was
quick. Whoever it was didn't linger.
I could be wrong. E1 and E2 sound like a type
of plane or something. That's my own thoughts.
Of course a plane didn't come through to me.
It was a spirit, I got the "E" part
and then a #, but not too clear of the #,
it was 1 or 2. I know it doesn't make any
sense, sometimes messages just don't.
Do you have any idea of what this is? I don't
know how this spirit died, just quickly.
If you are confused, you are not the only
one. I can't make heads or tails out of it.
I forgot, this spirit connected with E1 or
E2, hasn't been gone from the earth plane
long, I'd estimate around 6 months or less.
Now that I have said all of this can you tell
me what a E1 or E2 is? It is driving me crazy.
Sorry to bombard you with e-mails about this.
Apparently you know (of course or you wouldn't
have asked) who this spirit connected with
E 1or 2, and I don't like to say things like
this unless I am doing a reading in person.
This is difficult for me to ask in an e-mail.
But did this spirit commit suicide? Just a
feeling. If they did (it is a little fuzzy
so hang on with me here) If it was a suicide,
this spirit really didn't want to die, it
was like a cry for help but it went too far.
That's as best as I can explain it. I get
the feelings of "mistake". Whatever
it was, accident or suicide, this spirit feels
that it wasn't supposed to happen, their so
Now, here comes the freaky
E2 was the nickname given to
an intern for one of the shows of the very radio
station we were at that night. It was a long
time ago when he was on the show, probably more
than 8 years, but he definitely had a connection
to the station. He recently, in May, burned
his house down and committed suicide. The following
is the story that ran in the paper. It never
mentions his nickname from the radio station.
man kills self as home burns
May 13, 2005
APOPKA -- The bank
was ready to take Leslie Belgrave's house
away Thursday morning. Instead Belgrave let
it burn to the ground.
Then, after holding
Apopka police and firefighters at bay for
30 minutes, as the house burned, he shot himself
The standoff began
at 9 a.m. when a neighbor on West Nancy Lee
Lane called in the alarm, saying a man was
standing with pistol in hand in the doorway
of the burning building.
The threat of being
shot prevented firefighters from trying to
save the man or put out the fire, Assistant
Fire Chief Randy Fernandez said.
Belgrave, 33, paced
back and forth in his front yard and driveway
while yelling at police, who trained their
weapons on him. What he said could not be
understood by bystanders behind police lines.
Chuck Nelson, 20, said he was startled awake
by all the hubbub.
"I started hearing
noises and stuff; I went outside" Nelson
said. "I walk out to see the SWAT team,
house on fire, a body being dragged. . . .
I stepped out right as he shot himself."
A suicide note found
after Belgrave shot himself stated that he
was angry at police, some neighbors and a
bank, Apopka police spokesman Officer Jerome
A business card from
Apopka police Chief Charles Vavrek was found
with the note, but it was not known what contact,
if any, Belgrave had with Vavrek, Miller said.
Bank of America notified
Belgrave on April 7 that it had foreclosed
on his three-bedroom house and intended to
sell it Thursday to recoup about $65,000 in
unpaid loans, according to Orange County Comptroller
Those records also
show Belgrave had financial problems before
and declared bankruptcy in 1998.
What the bank is left
with is the shell of a home with no roof,
charred interior walls and broken windows.
Orange County Jail
records show Belgrave was jailed briefly last
fall after deputy sheriffs picked him up on
a warrant for failing to appear in court in
Seminole County on charges of driving with
suspended license and with an expired tag.
Police did not know
if he lived alone, Miller said.
Nelson, the neighbor,
said relatives sometimes visited Belgrave
on the weekends, but the man usually kept
"The guy went
crazy; luckily no one got hurt," Nelson
said. "I think he just lost it. He had
nothing to live for anymore."
With these facts on the table
there are only two possible explanations
The first is that Susan is
very talented at being a con artist. She found
out about E2 somehow and decided to string me
along. But why? Why would she go through such
lengths? How would she have found out about
this guy? Not impossible, but I think it's just
The only other explanation
I see is that she is really connected to something
that I am not...and if that's the case, I might
have to start reading my daily horoscopes!
