In my book, How to Talk With Spirits: Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts, I answer many questions from the curious living. A question often asked of me is about our pets, our beloved companions in life. Below is an excerpt. Book paper and eBook available,,

To see my ghost investigations around San Francisco and Calistoga, California, go to my website for links to or directly to Youtube search, The Haunted Bay and Beyond

• Can pets that have passed away communicate with us? We animal lovers dread the moment when our beloved pets––our companions––die. We fear our pets are lost to us forever. The grief can be as powerful as when we lose a person. Communication from a pet can be just as emotional as one with the spirit of a human loved one, and the reasons we want contact with them are the same. 
The energy of a pet doesn’t dissipate quickly after death. Animals are spirits, just as all life is spirit. Since we share the earth, it is easy to believe we exist in the spirit world together. They have a strong spirit presence and in my experience, can often be felt easier than human spirits can. 
People ask me if animals can communicate with us after death. I assure you, contact and communication with your pets can happen. During séances as well as in private psychic sessions I have shared many messages with teary-eyed pet guardians from their beloved animal friends. The spirits of dogs or cats commonly appear without an inquiry. Usually, they come to sit by a particular person. If not, after I describe the animal, someone happily claims it as her or his pet.
When you communicate with your spirit pets, you will receive images, actions and/or hear their animal sound. If communication is through a pet medium, she or he will receive from the pet particular information to identify contact with your pet has been made. The medium might see your pet’s personal habit or a favorite belonging.

Pet mediums are certainly one method for communicating, but I encourage you to do it on your own as well. Sit quietly in the room you and your pet favored. You can place a photograph (your favorite one) in front of you or hold it. Take several deep breaths to relax. Say your pet’s name a few times. Relax deeper and let your mind drift to an image of her or him, maybe a special playtime, or look at that photo. Bring back that loving feeling: Imagine stroking your pet, feel the fur and warmth beneath your fingertips. You could feel the wet nose of your dog nudging your hand. You might hear the purr of your cat. There is no doubt you will experience the presence of your pet as you move into the memories.
What will you want to know about your pet?  (cont'd in book).

Excerpt from "How to Talk With Spirits: Seances • Mediums • Ghost Hunts 
by June Ahern

Chapter 1
The boundaries, which divide Life from Death
are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say
where the one ends, and where the other begins?
– Edgar Allan Poe –

PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS about and perplexed by what happens after death, or if anything does happen at all. They wonder what the spirits of the dead might appear as, how they will manifest and what kind of messages will they give. They want to know why the spirits communicate, and if the spirits or ghosts should be feared. Although this book is mostly about communicating with our beloved ones who have passed with ways in which you can lovingly stay in contact, some people have experienced the darker side of spirits, which I can help understand and even avoid or dismiss.

I have always seen and felt ghosts around me, even in my dreams. Some have been very scary and mean. People have told me I need help, so I’m asking you. How do I stop it? You might not be able to completely stop spirits from communicating with you or seeing ghosts. I hear often from people who are having unwelcomed visitations from bothersome spirits and at times, vampire entities. They feel no power to stop these visitations. I’ll suggest some things here and in later chapters how you can tone it down for pesky ghosts and send them away from your space.
Let me assure you that most spirit/ghost sightings and/or hauntings are quite harmless, although unnerving. Animals and the young, especially babies, see them all the time. Creative people also have a tendency to experience them maybe because they are much more aware of “unseen” energy and colors. The positive visiting spirits can be rather joyful and interesting.
You don’t have to put up with the visits and manifestations. With your psychic abilities, you can curb and control them. It takes willingness, education, and guidance (see my ESP Quiz at end of book.)

The best thing you can do for your ghostly encounters is to learn how to control the visits. That will include which spirits/ghosts you wish to communicate with, when, and how. If they bother you stand up to the ghosts and tell them forcefully to back off or to be gone! Although sorry to say, it doesn’t always work that simply. Still, I’d start there. In time the spirit/ghost will listen and comply. Then again, and this is what I usually start with, negotiate with them sharing your space or bothering you. Say, “Don’t make so much noise!” or “Don’t touch me.” Personally, my advice is to never give permission to an unwelcomed or unknown spirit to touch you! 

Later in the book more about vampire entities:
If you are aware of low-grade, vampire entities please don’t focus on them or engage in any way. They thrive on frightful and curious reactions from the living. When someone shows no fear (or less fearful because it is quite creepy) they usually just slither along to another source to haunt. If it’s a poltergeist (mischievous, bothersome) entity eliminating it might need the cooperation of those sharing your living space. Many cases of poltergeist haunts involve pre-teen and teen members of the family. (advice cont'd in book)

The boundaries, which divide Life from Death
are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say
where the one ends, and where the other begins?
– Edgar Allan Poe –

• I’ve heard you talk about spirits and ghosts. Is there a difference? To me there is a difference. Although a ghost is the spirit or energy of a person, it has not gone onto a place of peaceful rest. The entity is suspended in a limbo state––not moving onto a heaven, or another dimension or living a physical life on Earth. Long after it has left the physical body it lingers on Earth reliving the same painful, misery and/or death scene over and over again. With that said about the belief of stuck ghosts, I’ll add a friendly encounter of one who had no plans to move on. (con't in book).

The Curious Living Have many questions about ghost, spirits, seances 

and much more all answered in book. 

This question comes up a lot - do spirits communication

 by dropping coins from heaven?


(available ebook & paperback.

• Question: When I find a penny on the ground or somewhere where I didn’t see it before, I’ve heard it’s a signal my dead loved one is remembering me. Do you believe in the penny message.

• Answer: I do because it has happened to me quite a few times, often in fact. Like you, I’ve seen a penny where I absolutely know was not there before. Now, I also find dimes. I guess the cost of living has gone up in Heaven also or perhaps a spirit is sending a different message.

A connection between coins and the dead is found throughout history. In ancient Greece an obolus (coin) was placed under the tongue of the dead to pay the fare required by Charon, the ferryman of Hades (the god of the Underworld.) He would ferry the deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron and into the underworld rather than leave the soul to wander the shore for a hundred years. In Persia, England and the U.S. pennies were routinely placed on the closed eyes of the dead, yet the purpose for this practice is not clear. Some say it was to keep the eyes of the corpse from flying open. 

Perhaps you can think of an unexpected penny as a simple “hello” from a spirit, a nickel might remind you of a time when you shared a learning experience, and a dime signifies you went through important life events together. A quarter reminds you to celebrate the spirit's great accomplishments in life.

It doesn’t have to be a coin as one person shared in a recent 2017 Dear Abbey advise column. A woman wrote about a special object she and her loving grandmother enjoyed and shared––sand dollars. Her grandmother would send the woman “dollar” postcards and after the death of her grandmother the woman inherited a gold sand dollar necklace that the grandmother wore often. Some time after the grandmother’s death, the woman looking for a new home, found one lone object in a completely empty house–– a sand dollar. She interpreted that as a sign from her grandmother, felt blessed and comforted and purchased the house.

Abbey responded in part that some people believe sand dollars are “coins” scattered by mermaids.

You might also realize a spirit connection through a particular object you and your departed loved one shared that appears out of nowhere at odd times and places.

Ghost Investigation 
a Time for a Sweet Memory

I've met all types of spirits and ghosts over my many years as a psychic medium: encountered peaceful, worried, scary, spooky, miserable, lost ones, and also a few funny, happy, one randy sailor and then this loving one. She looks at a young cameraman during the ghost investigation and sees in a sweet memory.

Woman ghost at Sharpsteen Museum in Calistoga, California  is pissed off! Angry at what how she was bilked out of her business and then sees a young cameraman who reminds her of a son. 

More about this haunted museum in my book, "How to Talk With Spirits: Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts" available ebook Amazon, and,  paperback

This part of the video didn't make the final cut, but it is one of my favorites with a woman ghost who although furious at what happened to me in 1865, wanting the truth to come out, and it does in the video on she sill shows her loving mother side.  

Spirits not wanting truth to come out? - entire video on youtube - this was the most difficult to get out, film lost in translation, edits sent - lost - back again, wouldn't show on computer - finally found - and then out for viewing.

Dreams can and do connect you to your loved ones that have passed. Here is my recent experience:

I dreamt about a 10-11 year old girl who had died. I looked at her young, serene face and felt grieved. Then my father appeared in my dream. He died 30 years ago and haven't dreamt of him in a long time. 

In the dream I said, "There's a little girl coming over. Will you greet her and help her feel loved?" 

He replied, "Yes, I know. She's with me and I love her."

When I woke-up I reflected on that dream. Simple, clear while having a strong message. 

My mother died five months ago at the age of 96. My father wasn't an easy husband. About a few years back she had said,  "I don't want to die because I don't want to see your father." She was still angry with him.

They had a long marriage and knew each other since she was 12, and he, 16 - he was best friend's with her brother. My father was strong-willed and aggressive, my mother a gentle, sunny soul.

Before my mother died (I write about this glorious vision in my book, “How to Talk With Spirits: Séances,Mediums, Ghost Hunts”), I had a vision of her 10-11 years of age, an image later supported by an old photographed. She crossed over as that young girl image. I would learn that a niece also had a very similar vision.

My dream comforted me they are together, bathed in loving support. She has found peace.

Dear readers, after a loved one has passed and you wish for communication pay attention to your dreams. He or she will no doubt make a connection with you. And why? It's easier than when you are in an awakened state. If you think that spirits do not communicate but you dream of a dead person, I hope at least it's a comforting source.

I cover more about this and how to communicate with spirits in my book. In my novel, "The Skye in June", a young character has spirit visions.

More about the story:
Partly to blame for her young son's death and abandoned by her husband, Liz Mackay leaves Scotland in disgrace, hoping for a second chance at love and life. Arriving in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, she soon joins a commune. Her new family is a curious mix: Black Panthers trying to change the world, a Vietnam vet seeking inner peace, a flamboyant hairdresser ready for fame and love, a flower child and her drug dealer boyfriend who changes girlfriends often. At first, Liz is happy to have found a welcoming home, but as her new roommates pry into her mysterious past Liz's search for a "jolly good time" brings more grief and a worsening drug addiction. Embroiled in a plot to bring down the Black Panthers, she looks for a way to redeem herself for her part in her son's death. Sharing her fears, she is told, "Keep your mouth shut."
