I would like to express my deep gratitude to all those in the Spirit Realm that contributed to the creation of this book, through the sharing of their wisdom and knowledge, in answering the questions we put forth, as well as their unwavering support of my Gift through channeling.

I extend my heartfelt thanks to the following family and friends for being the foundation of inspiration and support in my life that I needed to accomplish this and future books. I am listing first names only and in alphabetical order as all are equally as important to my Journey.

They are: Adam, Al, Ariel, Bates, Brian, Bud, Carl, Claudette, Cori, Dan, Debranne, Deisy, Don, Doug, Dusty, Eddie, Elaine, Ellen, Fita, Gaby, Gaines, Gary, Guy, Helen, Jeannie, Jeemer, Joseph, Kara, Karin, Kat, Loretta, Lorri, Louise, Madeleine, Marjorie, Ma, Mark, Matthew, Megan, Meka, Mom, Patrick, Pat, Patti, PJ, Rafael, Ralph, Richard, Robin, Rochelle, Sandra, Stacia, Steve, Susan, Suzanne, Terry, Todd


Inspired by the desire of many in the Spirit Realm, this book is the result of a critical need for the Living to be exposed to knowledge and perspective that might set them free from man-made obstacles and help lead them towards clarity and Peace.

The Spirit Realm requested of me that I write this book, by asking the Living for questions that they would then answer, through channeling with me. It has been my honor to do so, as my goal in life as a Medium is to assist individuals on their Spiritual Journey, while they are experiencing the Human Condition.

Please note that the importance of conveying the Intended message from the Spirit Realm dictates that I in no way modify the grammar of the answers given for each question. It has been explained to me that editing per man-made grammar rules could and often does, change the meaning of said messages. It is critical that the reader receive their message as intended, not as desired by man, so that the correct information and perspective be conveyed. It has also been asked of me to capitalize words along the way to show respect. I ask therefore, that you focus on the message provided and not the format.

Know that the answers given to each question are coming from Beings in the Spirit Realm, many of which have experienced the Human Condition and understand what we are going through, and that which is best for us to move forward with our Spiritual growth. The answers may seem at first quite different from what we might expect, in opposition to our individual faith or belief structures and a bit direct or harsh. Keeping an open mind is the best advise I can give, as I too, often find information I receive hard to handle. However, when I allow it to sink in, getting past my preconceived notions and man-made rules of thought, then I understand the True meaning and become able to benefit from the Knowledge.

The Spirits understand that the answers will often create more questions because they may not be as comprehensive as desired. This is a positive result because it will cause you to search within yourself for deeper meaning, Truth and direction. I have a 7-book series to be released over the next three years, that will delve deeper into the specifics of material merely touched on in this book.

Please note that there is never an Intention to offend or insult any person or faith when answering these questions, rather to provide alternate perspective one may not yet be aware of, giving the gift of knowledge, as a tool for repairing one’s limitations.

There is always a bigger picture. Knowing this allows you to see more, be open to greater possibilities, experience life more profoundly and to grow beyond the limitations placed on us by society and religion. May you discover the wondrous depths of who You are as you read on.

Chapter One

Human Condition

Who the heck is this “Joel The Medium” anyway?

Interesting is the Journey, that led to my becoming known as “Joel The Medium”. It all began in Miami, born to a city bus driver and a bank teller. I didn’t know this yet, but they were from Catholic and Baptist families. Boy was I in for a conflicted future. At the at age of three we were off to Montana. This is where I fell in love with snow and my Sister was born. That same year, back to Florida we went, living in many northern towns until we settled at the age of eight, in a place with just a blinking light at the crossroads. Yep, yikes is right.

This would be where those formidable years, when you develop your morals, would take place. I am sharing personal details in the interest of showing you that I can relate, because as you will read shortly, I have been there and back! So, it began, the years of trial and tribulation, judgement and experience. This was the only house that my parents had ever owned so it was to them quite the Blessing from God. My Dad had an excellent job driving a concrete mixer and my Mom was able to stay at home.

Well, those good days only lasted a few months. My Dad had a Stroke that left him disabled, but even worse, he was no longer my Dad, but my Father. Now my Mom had to go to work after being a housewife for over eight years. The part of my Journey that would reveal what Lessons I was here to learn, quickly and disturbingly showed themselves.

I have not mentioned it yet, but I was born with a birth defect that significantly restricted the flow of lymph in my left hand, arm and partially in my leg. My first lesson in life, cruelty. Kids are horrible and relentless, as we have all either been or experienced, so you can imagine what I had to go through with teasing. I remember some of the kids calling me Popeye after the cartoon character. It certainly caused me to be withdrawn and very reclusive so that no one would see my swollen hand and arm.
