The beach was quiet as I walked along the warm sand, soothed by the rhythmic swish of the waves. I was born in Cornwall and I’ve visited this spot, Par Beach, near St Austell, many times.
But tonight was different. I had a special mission.
I was looking for lost souls.
Opening up my energies, I allowed myself to be at one with the Universe, to feel the presence of spirits on the quiet, deserted beach.

I’d need help opening a doorway to the light, enabling them to pass over. I planned to return the following week with a group to help the souls and other lost spirits.
I’ve been able to see spirits since I was young. When I was 6, I used to watch spirit children playing with toys in my bedroom, although the strangest thing was when I saw my grandfather’s head floating in my bedroom one night!

A Shared Glimpse
JEFF OLSEN: The accident happened while we were driving back to our home in Bountiful, Utah, from a visit to relatives in the southern part of the state. My wife, Tamara, was asleep beside me.
