Why people hang on at the end of life is part of an hour discussion I had with Pete Johnson, who does what he calls, “mediumship for the living”. He communicates with people who are unable to communicate through speaking. More specifically, we’re talking about communicating telepathically with people in coma at the end of their lives.

In this discussion, Pete helps us understand why some people remain in the physical longer than medically expected at the end of life.

This is a shortened version of our discussion. Listen to this portion of the interview below.

End of Life: Awareness: Why Some Remain Longer Than Expected with Pete Johnson

Pete shares:

People hang on because they have unresolved issues

So, whether I’m talking to my human friends or anybody (yes, animals), I say,

“You know what? Get your stuff figured out now! Solve the issues as best you can. Voice what you need to voice. Don’t get to the point where you can’t, because these things will keep you around.”

People hang on because they didn’t…

  • Say they were sorry.
  • Contact that person.
  • Do something they feel they should have done.
  • Take care of something.
  • Find something out before they leave.

Those same desires exist for pets!

A woman with devastating stroke hangs on

I got a call from a skilled nursing facility staff member who was aware of my work. They explained that a woman who suffered a devastating stroke had been in hospice for a protracted period of time. During that time, she was anxious, agitated and upset. I’ll call her Maxine.

Neither family or friends could figure out why Maxine was hanging on. They told me, “We know Maxine would not want to live this way. Do you have any insight as to why this is happening?”

FYI, I rarely know background information for people I work with.  That’s because I don’t want to be front loaded with information.

Hanging on for Trixie

Almost immediately upon my connecting with Maxine I heard, “Who’s got Trixie? Who’s got Trixie? Who’s got Trixie?” I asked Maxine, “Who is Trixie?” “What is Trixie?”

I gradually understood what she was communicating. “Okay, Maxine, it’s your pet.”

After our session, I told senior staff, “I believe Maxine is wondering who has her pet. To help, I told Maxine if I find out, I’ll come back and let her know.” After our discussion, senior staff contacted the family, who found out who had Trixie.

So I went back to share this with Maxine. I said, “I can only imagine how much you miss Trixie, and I imagine she really misses you too. But she’s with a family member who loves her. She’s well taken care of, looked after. Everything is good for Trixie.”

When Maxine understood this, I knew she felt enormous relief. From that day forward, she rested peacefully. They no longer had to sedate her. And within about 10 days, she passed.

Hanging on because she was immediately separated from Trixie

Maxine was hanging on because when she had her stroke, she had no chance to make plans for Trixie.  As a result, she had no idea what had happened to Trixie. For somebody who was expected to be in hospice about four months, she had been there almost 10. My information was incredibly important to her. And rightfully so.

She let out an enormous sigh, bang, peaceful. Then she moved into the labor of leaving because she cleared what she needed to know.

You never know why someone’s hanging on

For instance, somebody who really loved their prized automobiles will ask, “Who’s going to get the Cadillac?” That’s where we step in and clear that up, find a resolution for it. If there’s a regret, we figure out who they can talk to or not. Once again, it releases them to do what they need to do to leave, and it frees up the family members.

Animals hanging on

From Maribeth: In my work as an animal communicator, I’ve met a number of animals who hang on until they KNOW their people are going to be able to live without them. It’s important for us to reassure our animals we’ll be okay (eventually) without them.  We need to give them permission to move on.  

If you need to reassure your animal that they can transition,

Schedule a session!

Pete Johnson mindproxyWith an esteemed career as a Chief Operations Officer, multiple patent holder, and Co-Founder of a thirty-plus year, best-in-class, international business, Peter Johnson understands the importance of knowledge – its value in the marketplace, the healing it can bring to the suffering, and the ethics it requires.

As a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia, Peter grew up and still lives in the light and influence of the Edgar Cayce Foundation. With a university education and business success long achieved, Peter then felt and followed the Divine nudge to combine his unique psychic skill set with his practical business acumen.

Peter’s primary audience is best classified as business to business: Government and Law Enforcement Agencies, Insurance Companies, Human Resource Departments, Law Firms, and Health Care Providers, among others. His services include:

  • Intuitive Personnel, Partnership, and Executive Assessment, Management, and Selection
  • Psychic Location and Evidence Recovery, and
  • Strategic Foresight, Prediction, and Analysis of energetic trends for opportunity exploration and maximization.

Telepathic Communication at the End of Live

However, today we focus on a subset of Peter’s skills, namely telepathic communication at the end of life – or what Peter more easily terms “Mediumship for the Living.”

Peter works on a contractual (consultant-type) basis with Skilled Nursing, Memory Care, Home Health, Autism, and other private service providers to deliver unique communication services for the family members, friends, or caretakers of those approaching the End of Life or others who are permanently or temporarily unable to communicate for themselves. This includes the unconscious, persons on the Spectrum, stroke victims, dementia patients, infants, and more.

Be it misunderstood or troubling behaviors, final wishes, or proactively clearing any lingering questions or issues before transition, telepathic communication can be instrumental in reframing complex relationships or familial issues to enable a compassionate and healing space — not only for the person themselves but also for the caretakers or family members that remain.
