  1. After looking over a number of the blog articles on your web page, I really like
    your technique of blogging. I book marked it to my bookmark site list and will
    be checking back soon. Please visit my website too and let
    me know your opinion.

  2. Excellent items from you, man. I have keep in mind your stuff previous to and you are just extremely magnificent.
    I actually like what you have bought right here, certainly like what you are stating and the way in which wherein you are saying it.

    You make it enjoyable and you continue to take care of to stay it sensible.
    I can’t wait to learn much more from you. This is
    actually a tremendous site.

  3. I’ve very nearly read all of your books. And just can not get enough!
    I’ve always found myself drawn to the paranormal from a young age.
    It’s always been a fascinating subject for me.
    I’ve also experience some strange happenings throughout my life, although no so much as yourself. Probably because although I find it all very interesting it also scares me somewhat. Must run in my family though as most of my mothers side of the family have been either mediums or in some way attached to the paranormal side of life.
    I can’t wait to read more of your books!
    What an interesting and intense life you have lead.

    • Thank you Sarah…. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know you’re enjoying my books. And yes, I’ve had a pretty intense, yet incredibly interesting life. Sounds like you have too. Most abilities do run in families. Thus, the very fact that many of your relatives are mediums says a great deal about you. I was also very scared of the crazy things that happened in my youth…. I simply did what you’re doing, I learned as much as I could about the subject and that empowered me to hold my own against whatever approached me from the other side. My advice then is to keep learning. Realize too that you are the living being so you have far more control over what can and can’t contact you…. simply by vocalizing it and also calling in whatever guides and helpers you have on the other side to help… you don’t have to know their name… just call them in.
      Hope that helps. Thanks again for your kind words. Best of luck with your gifts.

  4. Hi Charlie, Do you heal pets? I have a mini dachshund who has a slipped disk in her back. Due to the slipped disc she is paralyzed in her hind legs and cannot walk. She is on pain pills and muscle relaxers. It has been 2 months and she still can’t walk. We are taking her for acupuncture but not walking yet. She is like my baby and hurts so much to see her this way. Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you.

    • I don’t, I’m sorry. Hopefully the acupuncture will help. Are there such things as chiropractors for animals? Poor baby. Best of luck in finding her some relief.

  5. How delighted I was to discover your inspirational website today. I am a retired pastor from a Christian denomination that does not appreciate contact with the Spirit world or the wonderful work done by astrologers, psychics and mediums. Since my retirement I have become convinced that all of that is genuine and divinely given. I know that I am just a beginner in my understanding and I want to learn all that I can. Your website is extremely enlightening for me. Please accept my sincere thanks and compliments.

  6. I’m excited to uncover this page. I wanted to thank you for
    ones time for this particularly wonderful read!!
    I definitely loved every bit of it and I have you saved to fav to
    see new stuff in your website.

  7. Having read this I believed it was very informative. I appreciate you
    finding the time and energy to put this informative article
    together. I once again find myself personally spending
    a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  8. I simply wished to thank you very much yet again. I do not know what I would’ve tried in the absence of the entire ideas provided by you concerning this area
    of interest. This was the frustrating matter in my view, however , encountering the specialised
    avenue you resolved it made me to leap with fulfillment.
    I am grateful for this service and thus sincerely hope you really know what a great job you happen to be getting into training
    some other people using a web site. Most likely
    you have never got to know any of us.

  9. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would love
    to have you share some stories/information. I
    know my audience would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me
    an e mail.

  10. I was extremely pleased to uncover this page. I need
    to to thank you for ones time for this wonderful read!! I definitely really liked every little bit
    of it and i also have you book marked to check out new stuff in your website.

  11. Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.

    Do you know how to make yokur site mobile friendly?
    My website loois weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme orr plugin that
    might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Thanks!

    • I don’t actually know. I know the theme has to be “mobile friendly”. I have a WordPress site. I believe in WordPress you can browse particular “themes” by keyword (something you want your site to look like). I also believe there’s a button or box you can click under the search parameters that says “Responsive”…. If you do that it should bring up WordPress themes that are Mobile friendly. Outside of WordPress, you’d have to read about the theme (background) and make sure it says it automatically adjusts to mobiles. Hope that helps.

  12. Hi Colleen,

    I just started reading your book, “Life after Death” after years of trying to deny the pull to the supreme if you will….(I was raised morman and have tired to break away from it as I do not believe in all that stuff). I so love it so far…I am about half way thru….I so love it…makes a connection to me…makes me remember things from my youth….. My thing is I see coincidences pretty regular…..but my dreams…is another matter. Before I was able to adopt our last cat….she came to me twice in my dreams….the exact color and everything….and my husband came home with this exact cat…..weird! No…I didn’t tell him about the dreams until after. And she is my protector….my so to speak lover and guard, we have an awesome connection. I have also had dreams about my younger sister….weird symbolism dream….to long to explain here….but in short, she fell to her death….after falling from a huge huge flag poll and I was trying to catch her….long story short…I couldn’t catch her…..and there are a lot of details to this dream I remember….she was scheduled to go sky diving that same week I had the dream. I woke up literally crying from this dream…as if I had lost my sister….I mean horribly grieving and crying physically….very strong to me……..so I called her and told her about my dream…I begged her not to go…..she cancelled her appointment to go skydiving….and what is really weird….a man that was in the class she was suppose to sky dive in…died after his parachute didn’t open….we talk about his every now and then. Ok….so….am I seeing the future in my dreams? I am confused….As a small child I remember …as I thought it was….I saw witches on broom sticks flying around my house at night…and I would try to hide under my covers ….alot of this kind of stuff went on….also…I have many dreams of me as a child flying on a carpet and can see my parents…grandparents…etc doing things….One other thing…after my grandma died…..of whom was my very very very best friend in the whole world……..I received the call from my mother that she died when I was about 18 years old….I remember being so very sad and upset…(it was pouring rain and flooding around us at the time, we were out sandbagging the levies) I ran out and fell into the mud like some weirdo…. toward the sunset…crying my lungs out…why why why….and all the sudden rays from the sky broke thru…the rain stopped and it was the most beautiful thing I ever saw….but years later one night….I was sleeping and dreaming as usual…but this dream was not a normal dream….it was one of pure light…one of which I cannot describe…..the light…was not just a light….it was sort of a purplish pure color..all encompassing….I don’t know how to describe it…….I saw no one…heard no one..but I know it was my grandam…it was one the purest love …love I have never ever experienced …..it is a love that i crave to have back….one I wanted to be a part of…..all I can think of is that she was telling me she was ok…and all around me….? ….and it was so I guess my questions is….what should I be focusing on to help me….does this make sense to you? If you don’t have time…I understand…I will continue to read your books and do my research…..but …I thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us 🙂

    • I would definitely share that you need to look into the Webinars I’ll be offering in the next few months… for sure, the one on Psychic Development… but later in the year I’ll be offering one on dreams and other very interesting stuff. All webinars will have LOTS of exercises, so very hands-on even if they are me talking to you through a computer screen. So definitely, keep a watch. I hope to begin in April or May, depending upon how quickly I can get things lined up. BUT outside of that, it sounds to me like you’re definitely a “true dreamer” of future things. I absolutely agree too that you were contacted in your dream by your grandmother (the light)… no doubt about it… she was sharing her love with you in a way you could receive it (SO very special). The witches flying around your house were likely just some negative energy trying to scare you away from your gifts (not saying all witches are negative, because I know some great ones)… still, it was something that would scare a child. Thus, that’s why the negative took that form. You definitely have some very pronounced skills… ones that both you and others deserve for you to use more. I WILL get these webinars up soon. There are tons…. check out the different ones I have in mind at: http://www.calleenwilder.com/astrology-numerology/new-age/ I hate that life has gotten in my way and I don’t already have them up… but if I had, you might have missed the psychic development one (lol)… so perhaps that’s why the timing was delayed… everything in the proper time I guess. I’m happy to hear you love the book too… so VERY happy. Thanks for sharing… know too that I will teach you how I learned… and trust me, it is the best way in my opinion… it keeps you safe and helps you really hone in on what you can do. So either keep an eye on this sight, or better yet, sign up for the newsletter as those are the people who find out first the minute the webinars are up and running. Thanks again. And congratulations, you have some really special gifts. Love it!

  13. I just finished reading your rapid psychic development book and downloaded your meditations too. They were wonderful, and have started making it a habit to meditate every day now. I have had various moments in life where my abilities have popped up but have never been able to fully get it together! I hope now with your tools to expand on these that I may actually get somewhere. My recent interest was due to a little activity in my home directed at me, with two pair of my reading glasses and my eye liner pencil disappearing,(not returned yet, and have turned the house upside down looking for them!) a “Psst” noise a few times when I went near my bedroom door, putting my hairs on end, and a photo of me ending up in the middle of the floor totally unexplained and two light bulbs blowing when I turned on the switches. All within a few weeks and to do with seeing… So, I took the hint and got busy researching and have had no more activity since. But I would love to know if it was a family member prodding me, and if I can get them back again. I feel as though I am armed with more info, but can’t get answers quick enough- being a little impatient here! I love your down to earth quirky way of writing too, I have a very similar sense of humor. If you have any more suggestions or can I book a distant reading as I live in Sonoma CA I would greatly appreciate it. Cheers.

    • Hi Tara… I’m very happy to hear you enjoyed the meditations and the book. It sounds like you need a little help honing in your abilities. When I first started out I had strange occurrences happening all around me too… it’s called “unharnessed psychic energy” and while it’s great, it also needs to be somewhat controlled if you’re to make much of it. As for readings, I do all of my readings via phone or Skype, so long distance is not a problem. TOO… in either April or May (depending upon how soon I can get everything put together being the non-techie I am) I will be offering Webinars, one of which will be a Psychic Development Training Program… tentatively scheduled for 3 separate evenings, one a week, each lasting 2 hours. The first webinars I offer will likely be the smallest, so I’m hoping to answer a lot of questions there immediately as they come up. Not to sell my own program, but I think this webinar will help people like you a great deal… I plan to teach you like I learned, which seems to be working so far (ha)! In the meantime, you can set up an appointment via my Appointment Calendar, via email Calleen@CalleenWilder.com, or by calling 317-781-1159 (although I can be tough to catch off the phone so you’d likely have to leave a message but I will get back to you ASAP)… TOO, you should sign up for the newsletter. Yes, it contains all my blog posts for the week… but subscribers are always the first to know when webinars and things are available via independent emails to them… Anyway, I hope that helps. And thank you SO much for sharing your experiences with me. Oh, off the top of my head I’m not sure it was family you heard… I hope so, but my bet is it was traveling spirits who knew you could see them. In a reading I can hone that down more for you… but that’s my initial impressions. Hope to hear from you soon.

      • It was so nice to get such a quick response! Thank you ? I would love to join the webinar and will also check out your calender to make an appointment. I am sure my family think I am going a little crazy right now as I feel high on happiness, finally finding a human guide who can help me!! I just haven’t found a connection so far that I resonate with that feels personal or willing to connect like this. It has always been via email and felt too automated and kept at a distance. So I feel that I have been guided to you for this very reason. Looking forward to my new and enlightening adventures ahead!

        • I’m so pleased to hear that… I can’t wait to have more direct contact and teach you what I know, along with learn from you what you know that I don’t. I’m very excited as well. Talk to you soon.

    • Oh Colleen….thank you so so so much for your reply….as I was thinking I am out of my mind…lol….I feel so zoned out lately…..Like I am not in this world…strange….I am afraid my family will have me committed….lol….seriously! My one sister jokingly asked me if I was smoking crack…lol…she knows better than that …and she is the one I had the dream about falling from the flag poll….she knows I have weird dreams. I had a dream the other night of a sister I have…my mother had her when the baby was only 4 months old….she keeps coming to me….I always would call her Sarah….it just felt right….any way….I finally decided…..that I had to ask my folks and siblings about this….even if they thought I was crazy….because Sarah kept insisting…so yesterday…my father called me….(he never calls me)…..They are very very into the morman church. So, I got the morman lecture….lol…. He said my mother had a fever that caused the baby girl to die…and from higher up members in the church…they advised him and mom not to name her…..as she will be with them in the afterlife….so…he never gave me a name…but in talking to my baby sister yesterday…..she said she had asked my mother about this in her teens…and mom had told her that they named her Sierra…well…I guess I am close as that sounds like Sarah…..to me….am I crazy….I did later in the day confirm this with my mother…..so it is true…I have the name pretty correct…and now Sarah will not leave me alone…lol…she is a character…..she has a lot of sass….just like my physical sisters…but since she has made her appearance known to me….I must say…I am half in and half out of physical life…..she is messing with my brain…..Oh geez…I have so much to learn……and yes….I thank you so much for your reply email….I thought perhaps you thought I was crazy……but no….I will watch for your webinars….and try to learn…..I feel so out of it…I can not describe how I feel….it is very very weird to me…..almost like I am on a drug of some sort….but I will keep learning…thank you….and loves and hugs….from the depths of my soul…..

      • I will do my best to get them up quickly… what I would do for now, if I were you, is ask those in spirit who help you (your guides and angels) to “ground” you. Since you’re feeling slightly disassociated you might also want to halt talking to Sarah for the time being until you gain more control over the process. But let’s face it, that was awesome what you got about her. When I do psychic/medium readings I feel much like you’re describing. I’ve always felt it’s because I’m between “here and there”. Afterwards I always try to ground though… either by eating something or drinking something (even water). I think you too need to ground. Perhaps picture roots growing out of the soles of your feet and deep into the earth. Do ask for help though. I must add too though that I’m not any type of medical professional, so if for any reason you feel you’re losing grip, do consult one. I can only speak for myself and say that the feeling you’re describing is very familiar to me, but I can’t guarantee I’m correct. If I didn’t add that I might be steering you wrong and I’d never want to cause harm anywhere. I do believe you have quite a gift though, and I will do everything in my power to get things on the road as quickly as possible with the webinars. Hope to work with you soon.

        • Dear Calleen…..I so thank you for your response once again….I know how busy you must be, taking care your your own life and family and let alone all of us all confused…. From the depths of my soul…..I thank you for your time and your understanding (I, as I am sure know all to well…..I just don’t know who I can talk to without them thinking I am insane…:)….I usually keep this stuff to myself…and of course share with me pets…:) I know I have had these gifts since a young age……..and yes…..looking back and still as of today….try to ignore them…..because they stir such emotion in me…it is almost more than I can handle. As you have suggested…I will watch for your webinars……and I must say….very very very excited! If I may help in some way….please let me know…..as you have helped me……you listened and you understood……and ……I was for the first time in my life ….at east with it all…..thank you 🙂

          • Awww…. thank you so much. I know what it’s like to be misunderstood. I really do hope to get the webinars off the ground late April early May. So do keep watching, and/or sign up for the newsletter since I send all subscribers an independent email about such things. Either way, I know some of what I’ll share will help you out tremendously, precisely because it helped me when my teacher taught me some 30 years ago. Stay Safe. I seriously hope to work with you soon.

          • I have one more questions….I promise to leave you alone….ha…..how would you suggest I go about finding some people of like mind or classes like you attended in or close to your area, to help me figure all this out….or should I wait for you webinars….I am afraid to talk to most people about this …they think I am crazy…..I won’t even tell my husband….:) One last thing…today…I notice a picture was moved in our house….not one on a wall….that would be easy for my cats to move…..it was one that sites on a table with a bunch of other pictures…it was turn sideways….now…we have no other people living with us in this house…and my husband is disabled and cannot go into this room….I didn’t find it creepy..but I did find it odd…..hummm? Ok….I thank you once again…:)

          • No worries Heather… I totally understand. I don’t really know who is in your area. You might check out Alternative or New Age Book stores, they usually have things going on. Now I can’t promise the quality of what they’ll offer, but hopefully some of them will have something worth learning. I got lucky… really, really lucky. I stumbled upon the man who taught me in a very synchronistic way… really shouldn’t have found him, but I did. Unfortunately teachers like him are few and far between. I’ve been to many classes since his, and none came close. That’s why if I were you, I’d look in your area, but I’d also at least try out one of the cheaper webinars I’ll be offering just for comparison… because I will be teaching the way I was taught. More is always better provided you can work out the $$ and the time. Hope that helps. And the picture I think could just be another sign that someone is still hanging around.

          • Good Morning 🙂

            Wonderful! Thank you once again. I will look around. I will be for sure watching your webinars….I am very excited about this. I am also buying a few more of your books.

            Have a beautiful beautiful day………

  14. Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I will send this information to him.
    Pretty sure he’ll have a great read. Many thanks
    for sharing!

  15. Hey it’s me again. Sorry to bother you but I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to talk to me about my worries. I think all that stuff I looked up were fine and I was just paranoid. Also I’m not going to be able to make an appointment with you because it could be inconvenient for me due to me living a way home from yours. Anyways, thanks and good luck with you career and life!!!

  16. I’m curious to find out what blog system you are utilizing?
    I’m having some minor security problems with my latest website and
    I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

    • Hi Mike… I use WP Engine… it’s a little more money than most hosting companies, but they specialize in WP and are SUPER secure. I’ve never had a problem with them. Hope that helps.

  17. I believe that is among the such a lot vital info for me. And i am happy studying your article.

    But want to statement on some common issues,
    The site style is great, the articles is really nice :
    D. Excellent job, cheers

  18. So you can really sense any awaiting entities that are going to get me, because I think I might’ve trigger some of them while I was looking at those things I was talking about?

    • Well, unless I was actually with or in contact with you, I can’t read all things around you (sorry)! It is simply my belief that if there was something negative around you, you would know, as they would be doing very negative things. Therefore, if you feel comfortable, other than the nagging issue you have with believing something you explored opened you up to something hostile, I think you’re very likely okay… just feeling antsy perhaps. But if you want definite responses, you might look for someone in your area to help you with this. Perhaps a local psychic/medium, or even a New Age bookstore might be able to help you find the answers you need, along with some peace. Hope that helps.

  19. Sorry to bother you but I was thinking of setting up a reading after I finish my education( probably from 18 – 24 years old) if that’s ok with you.

  20. Hello, I just read your article and got interested. Over the past month, I looked at some things supernatural and I’m afraid I might’ve set myself up to be attacked by them in the future. I know this may sound silly, but I just want to be sure that I am spiritually pure in the future. My name is Dean James Smith and I was born on December 15, 2001.

    • Well, I can say that the negative is always around, so you want to protect yourself as you open up. BUT… just looking at something usually doesn’t do that. Your fear of it might though, as the negative loves fear. I would suggest that you surround yourself with the “white light”, and you’ll pretty much rule out any negative. Thing is, white is always stronger than them. Too, I will begin to offer some webinars on various topics beginning after the first of the year… many will help people explore many topics while also being protected. So you might want to sign up for my newsletter or check back here to see what and when I’ll be offering, as some of them will most likely be very helpful for you. In the meantime, surround yourself with the white light and all should be good. Best of luck Dean.

      • Ok thanks, I was just afraid that spirits were going to attack me. I had one more question, can spirits drag down other spirits, are we strong?

        • Sometimes… it depends on the strength of each individual spirit. Once someone passes into the light (over to the other side) I think it’d be VERY hard for a lower level entity (negative) to influence that spirit… but while we’re still transitioning to the other side it would be possible.

          • I really enjoyed talking with you! Over the past few years, I got so paranoid after seeing many things that claimed to be cursed( which Sounds silly, but I tried to keep an open mind), and I thought that I saw things in pictures and real life randomly move and when nothing happened, I was afraid bad things would drag me down when I naturally cross the other side. Thanks for the comfort and keep it up! Maybe I’ll meet you again someday. 🙂

  21. I just stumbled on your website by sheer luck. My daughter who just turned 44 suffers from Aspergers adult….I am at crossroads right now in my life what next step to take to help this daughter of mine before I leave this planet….Can you shed some light …I really need help. Regards Sonia

    • I am definitely no expert on Aspergers. What I do know is that many with Aspergers have a tremendous strength in at least one area of their lives. In fact, I believe many savants have had at least a mild hint of Aspergers. In my mind I’ve always felt that these are perhaps souls who came here to do one thing in particular, and limit social exposure in order to do so. In other words, perhaps they didn’t even come here to be social, but more so, to do whatever it is they came to do. I simply think I’d encourage her to do whatever it is that she loves and leave the rest be. I don’t know if the limited insight I have about this is of any use to you, but I do know there’s always a plan and a purpose… a life path. It seems her’s is extraordinarily challenging for not only her, but you as her parent as well. There are many alternative healers I could suggest if you’re interested. One of the best I know of lives here in Indiana. I don’t know if that’s anywhere near where you are. If so, email me via the contact form and I’ll send you her email. There’s also a few online I know of, but don’t know personally… but I’m happy to forward their info as well.
