Halloween through the eyes of a spirit medium

"Crows" by CC Flickr user Jennifer C.,

For many of us, Halloween is a day we get to depart from reality. But for Sandra Belanger, ghosts, the afterlife, and death are part of everyday life. That’s because she’s a “spirit medium.” 

"No one ever thinks about our consciousness after we die. And from the standpoint of physics, energy cannot be destroyed it can only be transformed. It would stand to reason that with a human being being powered by electrical energy, that's not just going to dissipate."

This story first aired in 2011. Sandra Belanger passed away in April 2017.
