Psychic profiler and author, Robbie Thomas.
I’m going to start running some periodic interviews of my fellow authors to introduce followers of my blog to some other great talent that is out there. There’s a lot of fantastic things going on out there aside from my own little writing world. First up is renowned psychic profile and paranormal author, Robbie Thomas. (Maybe I can get my buddy, Rob Gutro, to agree to do the next one).
Robbie Thomas is a Psychic Medium/Spiritual Councillor helping internationally, families and Police fight against crime, while bringing solace to those who need it. Over many years of assisting in numerous murder and missing persons cases, Robbie has been able to give great details to these devastating crimes and event, which have led to finding lost people, arrests being made in murder cases, and bringing closure to families who desperately need it.
Q. In your own words, who is Robbie Thomas?
I’m a loving husband and father of three beautiful girls. I like to think of myself as a kind and caring individual trying his best to lend a bit to this life while listening to what life has to offer from this world of ours. I would consider myself a visionary, friend, and helper, someone who would go that extra mile for someone in need. Sometimes, these qualities might seem good and sometimes a bad, it all depends on the moment, I guess. I’m not perfect, but would like to think I do my best in life.
Q. Tell us about your work with the police and how you and your abilities have been able to help solve crimes.
Over many years of assisting with cases that involve murder or missing persons, the ability itself, has been a key role in helping families and that of police. From either bringing forward a key new piece of evidence in assisting to move a case in the right direction to actually giving a murderers name or place where a body would be, I find spirit moves swiftly and in a precise manner when they want to get the message across. Communicating with the other side greatly depends on those from the other side and how the message is conveyed.
Q. When in your life did you start recognizing the abilities that you possess?
At a very early age things such as shadow people to speaking with guardian angels was something that was just part of life for me. However, it became much more prevalent in my early adolescence and trying to cope with how to control or accept the much more dramatic part of communication of contact was a task. Knowing my peer section would only push me away, I decided to venture this road keeping everything quiet. Later in life, I knew the path I was put on was one of helping others in a manner that was very decisive. I went through to become a police officer on two occasions. One, I was hired and then told the very same day that I was too young as I was only seventeen and passed all the testing. I remember shaking the hand of the police chief and him reading my scores welcoming myself and two others to the force.
Then there was a pause. He then turned to me smiling asking me to come back when I was twenty. Yes, my first hire and fire on the same day! My second police testing was just outside of Toronto, Ontario. I remember coming home sitting in my kitchen speaking with a family member when there was screaming coming from my back yard area. I jumped over the fence in the back only to see a woman screaming, “accident…accident!” I ran in the direction she pointed looking for an accident in the street and anticipating a bad happening. There was nothing! Suddenly, a man yells over to me, “In here!” I look at the gentleman standing at the balcony door to this townhome and him waving me over. I ran over and into a kitchen area, where a woman was running around a kitchen table screaming, a man standing over by a door and he had his hand on the doorknob. He called me over as I looked into his eyes that were wide open. He grabbed me, opened the door and shoved me into this little room. At this point I was looking at the floor looking for blood as just moments ago the lady was screaming, “accident!” The room was very tiny, nothing more than that of six feet by four feet.
A small bathroom and there was a man dead in there with his eyes wide open looking directly at me. All the training in CPR started to come forward as I began right away checking for vitals and was about to administer CPR when I heard, “Let me go!” I stopped for a moment shaking my head and then proceeded to check again for vitals and start CPR. “LET ME GO!” I heard it a second time, very loud this time. His spirit was very loud and clear and that was the point. I opened the door while still looking at him and backed my way out of the bathroom. At that moment, I knew there was something I was going to do, but becoming a police officer wasn’t it. I called someone at the precinct and was put in touch with a captain who immediately came to my home the day after with a film crew. They were making a film on how police, firefighters and EMT’s quit the profession because of duress. Funny thing is though, I wasn’t stressed and you should have seen their faces when I explained exactly what took place and the reasoning for me not wanting to become a police officer. This was the start of my career doing what I do and then it came full circle much more prevalent and me moving much more forward in assisting with cases just after the death of my mother in 1994.
Q. Where does your passion for writing stem from?
I love to write and that of many genres. I guess for me it’s about getting the truth out, either in factual writings in the paranormal, spiritual or that of the horror genre. If I have a story to tell from factual events, I like to at times twist it with a bit of the fictional fantasy type writing. I get lost in the story bringing it from a factual stand point.
Q. After publishing Time Shift: The Paradigm a number of the events you wrote about started coming true. Without giving away too much, tell us about a few of those events and how did that make you feel?
The book, itself, played out like a movie. I couldn’t type fast enough to get all the information across. It flowed very quickly and precisely to a point tunnel vision was my only sight as words in the proper manner were typed out before my eyes. The story cascades an apocalyptic storyline that takes one on a very fast paced thriller ride throughout our world and the events that unfold.
Surprisingly enough, the sense of rushing came over me as though what was being written had to be published as soon as possible for people to see and recognize its importance. The publication date alone had significance, for from the time it was released, many aspects about the entirety of this work started to come true. The cover alone has meaning as again the release date was just days before scientists found the complete Mayan Calendar and in its representation I created from sight what would prove to be the very first coming true of a prediction. The cover itself holds true as it shows our world we live in burning through the Mayan Calendar only to survive and move forward in life. For the longest time, we as a people looked at the Mayan Calendar as a dictation of what would become of our world as the end was near. Not so, for the story continues and the prophecy from the Mayans proved to be wrong and the cover proved to be right.
There are many other significant moments in time from the release date that express many happenings that have come true post publication. From names, places, events and timelines have all come to pass with great significance, which has indeed kept researchers and critics watching. Spirit wanted a message to be told and in doing so, many have read the book while looking twice at what is coming next.
Q. What’s your take on the state of the paranormal on television and in the media?
The state of the paranormal has its moments, I would say. From the onset of so many wanting to discredit others while trying to save face of their own, to people making a mockery of what many really hold sacred. I have a saying, “Too many people trying to walk among the dead when, in fact, they don’t know how to walk among the living!” It’s direct and specific to what is going on within the paranormal community as a whole. The paranormal on television is so saturated with much of the same thing over and over that it becomes a repeat of pete. What use to be a real exciting venture in wanting to know more about the unknown, at times, has turned into a three ringed circus with everyone searching for five minutes of fame, regardless of how they sell their soul.
There are many pioneers from the culture of paranormal, who we all look up to, yet trying to set “new” trends to something most have no idea what they are dealing with, is making a spectacle at times of the field of work in which many hold dear. The media is a conglomerate of build you up only to tear you down syndrome. You’re in at one moment with the right clique of individuals, yet in the same breath you become the cat’s eye target if things don’t go a certain way. I remember back ten years ago and you could count on one hand the amount of so called internet paranormal radio shows/ networks that there were. Now, it too, is so saturated with this type of media. But don’t get me wrong, in the same sense, as it too, serves a good purpose and also that of a too saturated market indeed. It has become a competition/three ringed circus in its own light.
At times, it makes one wonder where all the integrity has gone, where is the focus on the priority of research, proper research in every aspect of paranormal gone. It has become a popularity contest at best, which has at many times given the paranormal community a black eye. I believe we all are here to learn, but learn together without all the nonsense that goes on within the community. I did my first one hour special on television back in 2004 and one individual from the community just happen to catch the show that day calling me up. We discussed the paranormal and how many researchers, real researchers there were back then, and it’s amazing to see from out of the woodwork how many claim to be in the field of work for many years before. This is where the integrity of this field fails, which at times, creates the premise of everything I’ve just discussed here today.
The paranormal is a great journey for most and held in great respect to the many who have ventured into its depths over the many years. This is where the fundamentals of true research/examination should be discovered by those trying to establish anew within this field. I truly have seen many come and go over the decades of working within this myself, which only proves the point that working together for a common goal to achieve the proper, is essential by every means. It’s desired and needed!
Q. What keeps you motivated to do all that you do?
People! I love people and the existence of human kind. I love the fact, I tie together God and the paranormal in every aspect of ability/research/spirituality. From working the front lines with families and police on murder/missing person’s cases, giving the hope and faith to move forward to find the answers to things we need to know to working on research with others in proper paranormal encounters, knowing we are all here, equal in this life and knowing we all have a purpose to exist to move forward to exist again. This is what makes me motivated in many ways.
Q. What’s next on the horizon for Robbie Thomas?
I love the fact of the continuation of living and making things happen in my own personal life. I love the fact of creating new and exciting works of art through the eyes of spirit that is placed in sequential moments on paper from pen. These are the messages from beyond, which gives great encouragement to me personally. Taking from this, working in creating television series to movie scripts from the books I’ve written while staying focused on the purpose of what everything is meant for. We’ve created a paranormal true crime series that is in development at the moment with much interest from many in the market. This will give the opportunity for many to have assistance in cases from murder to the missing, lending the outside the box theme looking for new evidence on such things.
Looking forward to life and what it brings in the future, for the future is what we give to the present and that is how you live life treating it with great respect. This is what I do everyday and will continue to do always.
