Dallisa Hocking used to be an executive in the casino industry in Las Vegas. But now instead of dealing with high financial stakes, she deals in spiritual ones. Her company, Spirit & Spark, matches clients with top spiritual and wellness service providers. She is also known for her work on missing persons and cold cases as well as mysterious deaths, providing loved ones with information and closure.
According to her bio, she has trained with the likes of Tony Robbins, Dr. Brian Weiss, Dr. Bruce Lipton, and Dr. Raymond Moody. She received her psychic gifts from her grandmother (Eloise) and great-great grandmother (Bell).
We got the chance to ask Dallisa a few questions, which we are sure you will find very insightful if you have questions about spirituality, such as “what do ghosts look life?” or “how to tell if someone is possessed” or “how to get rid of bad energy.” Please keep scrolling to get the answers you are looking for!
At what precise moment did you realize you had psychic abilities? Can you describe exactly what happened?
I’ve been intuitive for as long as I can recall. I grew up in a family where we openly discussed matters of the unseen: ghosts, bumps in the night, psychic messages and the magic of the universe. My grandma Ellie would sit me down as a child and tell me about the spirits she had seen the night before, and which “dead” friend or relative had come to pay her a visit. I was constantly mesmerized and always sat on the edge of my seat as she told me her stories. Grandma always encouraged me to listen to any messages that I received, and be open to what my spirit guides were telling me.
You see, it was a fateful trip that changed the course of my life. I was attending a workshop on synchronicity, the study that everything in your life happens for a reason, at the Omega Institute in New York, and I decided to extend my trip an extra day to enjoy time with my friend Peter, who had a home in the area. He and I explored small towns, dined together and caught up on our lives. However, on the last night of my trip, he received a call with the news that his dear aunt Barbara had passed away unexpectedly. I gave Peter my condolences, and then we separately went off to bed.
That night, I slept with the windows opened and marveled at the chirping critters that were in the surrounding trees. I went into a deep sleep, and the next morning arose with great intrigue. I had “seen” Peter’s aunt Barbara while I was sleeping, but I had never met her nor did I know anything about her. She asked me to deliver a message to her nephew: she made it to the Other Side and she was okay! I compared notes about her physical appearance with Peter while standing in his kitchen, and he confirmed that my description was accurate. I was in awe and thrilled that his aunt had shown up to deliver such a sweet confirmation.
And, that was just the beginning. I flew back home and I started “testing” out my abilities for friends and family members, and the floodgates opened! They were amazed by what information was coming forward from written channelings that I was doing on their behalf — details that other people had not known about their lives. That is when I knew that I was tapping into something larger than myself, sharing messages of love, hope and faith.
I intuitively know that Barbara came to me that night to show us that she was very much alive, albeit in a different way. And as a result, it changed my life forever.
When do you tend to see or feel more spirits/ghosts?
Interestingly, it’s during the day when I have my psychic signal turned on and I am open to receiving messages from the Universe, Spirit Guides, Angels and Loved Ones in Spirit. Thankfully, I have a great relationship with my “Spirit Team” and they know that I’ll be open to receiving more information when I’m awake. I occasionally have premonitions through dreams, too.
One recent dream encouraged me to reach out to a longtime friend that I hadn’t spoken to in years, only to find out that they had also had a dream about me on the same night and they were thrilled I tracked them down online. The Universe will send you breadcrumbs — it’s up to you on whether you’re going to be open to following them.
What do they look and/or feel like?
Spirits, or ghosts, to me look like a daydream. My grandmother would see apparitions walking through her house, and they looked like a real person, only slightly translucent and they would float a bit off of the ground. My psychic medium visions look like a daydream being projected in front of me — like I’m watching a special movie screen.
Energy feels differently depending on what information I am receiving. Angels feel light and filled with absolute love, like the consistency of feathers. Spirit Guides generally step forward as teachers or intellectuals, helping us to find our way through life in practical ways, or teaching us something we need to learn. Loved Ones who have passed away will often present like they were when they lived with us on Earth. And, sometimes they will use my physical body to communicate information about how they passed, as a way of confirming it’s them.
How can the average person recognize a ghost and whether it has good or bad intentions?
Trust your gut. If you feel that the ghost does not have your best intentions in mind, listen to that inner knowing. Portals that ghosts can travel between can show up anywhere. I’ve seen them inside client’s homes, offices and outdoor spaces. You can use things like Sage or Palo Santo to rid the space of energies, but I’d suggest consulting a professional to help you through the process. The last thing you want to do is make a harmful Spirit agitated or angry.
What’s been your scariest experience with a ghost?
Ghosts don’t scare me now, but they used to frighten me as a kid. As much as I was intrigued by my grandmother’s stories about what she would see and experience, I was afraid of seeing them myself. I thought that they would look “dead” or demented. They don’t actually appear that way to me though. I’ve had evil Spirits try to come through during sessions with clients, but I am very forceful in getting them to leave. If they aren’t willing to bring love and peace to the client I am working with, they can go away! Evil Spirits often appear as a black or dark colored energy that tries to attach itself to someone or a location.
How can we protect ourselves from evil spirits or get rid of any in our house?
Although I’d recommend working with a professional who can clear energies from a location, there are a few things you can try for a simple clearing of any space. I’d recommend calling in Archangel Michael, and asking that “any and all energies that are not here for my highest and best interest, I command for you to go. Based on Universal Law, Be gone, be gone, be gone.” Repeat as many times as you intuitively feel are needed. You can place Black Tourmaline or Black Obsidian, along with a piece of Selenite, in each corner of the room or house to help clear out negative energies.
Do you believe in possession? What are the signs that someone is possessed?
Yes, I do believe that some energies are looking to possess someone or an object, as a way of “hosting.” In other words, they are looking for a place to feed the energy itself, to stay or feel more “alive.” In my experience with clearing these energies from clients, the individual may not feel like themselves. They could feel very drained and fatigued. Some will have a physical odor to their body. If someone is battling with an addiction, it might be helpful to seek a professional opinion on whether this individual has an energy possession. I’ve seen energies try to dictate what a person does, attempting to do harmful things to themselves and others.
What is the best way to rid someone who is possessed of their demons?
I’d recommend that they get a consultation with someone who is well-versed in possessions and entity removals. This is often done through a Shaman or qualified Psychic Medium. My company has service providers that help with this very issue!
Do you like horror movies or do you think they are bad mojo?
Heck no! I don’t watch horror movies. I think real life is scary enough. I also don’t play with divination tools without strict boundaries. For example, I would not recommend playing with a Ouija Board, because those are often used as portals for all kinds of ghosts to come through, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re essentially inviting in the good, bad, and downright frightening.
Do you believe in past lives? If so, who have you been?
Yes, I do believe in Past Lives. I believe we come into each lifetime with a set of lessons that we signed up to learn, along with “soul contracts” that we’ve made with other people that will play starring roles in our story (and us for them). I’ve participated in hypnosis to view my own past lives, and I had one where I was a slave in the fields, literal property, and another where I died during childbirth. Through reflection on these lifetimes, I could see where I was still trying to learn some of the same lessons of those lifetimes in the present time. I think that we keep getting assignments until we fully understand the lesson at hand.
What should people be careful of when celebrating Halloween, to avoid attracting evil spirits into their lives?
Set your boundaries with Spirits. If you only want good energy and Spirits around you, demand that’s the only thing you’ll allow around you. Don’t live in a place of fear when it comes to evil spirits, as fear is a lower energy frequency, which then brings about things in your life to be fearful for. You attract what you think about. Command that you are surrounded by high vibrational light beings that have your highest and best interests in mind. Be confident with your request. Know that you’ve been heard!
How do YOU celebrate Halloween?
I usually go trick-or-treating with my niece and nephew and play it fairly lowkey. Energy can become overwhelming for me, so I limit my time around large groups of people. It can be intense! Last Halloween was memorable, as I felt a crime right before it happened. Here’s that video: https://youtu.be/fRGN7Rnopng
How do you help people with your services?
I personally work with clients around the world as a Psychic Medium and Energy Practitioner. As a former corporate executive and serial entrepreneur, I also work as an Intuitive Business Consultant for business owners or people thinking about making a career change or launching their own venture. I can see to the root of the energy to see where someone is holding themselves back in life. I love helping people get to a level of joy, love and faith where amazing things start to happen. I often work with individuals that are ready for more, but fear or lack of love has been paralyzing.
My company, Spirit & Spark, has a full team of service providers that help clients with things like: past lives, entity removals, tarot card readings, shamanism, life and spiritual coaching, Human Design, HeartMath, Theta Healing and more. When an individual comes to Spirit & Spark, we thoughtfully match them with a service provider on the team. Most of our services are done over the phone and Zoom video. I also work with students around the world in my program, “Prepare to Launch.” It’s designed to help anyone become more in-tune with their intuitive abilities!
Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you.
I starred in my own 90-minute live audience show in Las Vegas earlier this year. I had 4-shows each week, and I read people from the audience. It was at Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel inside of a very haunted location. I still can’t believe that I was a Las Vegas headliner! It’s one of those dreams that most people never ask for, because they think it would never be possible. But, my grandma predicted that I would need a “stage name” when I was a kid. So, I guess she knew all along!
Anything else we should know?
I believe that anything is possible and that we should expect miracles. Everything that is happening in your life at this moment is FOR you. It’s all rigged in your favor.
