"We've had some really, really weird things happen on the set, a lot of problems with lights. One day, [co-star] Jay Mohr was just finishing up a scene, and he left the set. Two seconds after he left the set, a lamp came crashing down right in the spot where he was standing," James recounts. "Another time, there was a scene where Jennifer Love Hewitt was leaving the frame, and right behind her was, like, this aura left on the film."
The clairvoyant has also experienced several bizarre occurrences in his own home. "I remember one night I came back from the set, and I was coming into my house, and all of a sudden, I heard the Jacuzzi going off, and the garage door started going up and down, up and down. I knew that, indeed, there was a ghost in the house," James recalls. "I realized, there's a man there. He went to the set of Ghost Whisperer, and he found me on the set. He followed me home, knowing that one day, I would be able to help him pass over.
"I consider myself to be very open-minded about just about everything. I confess that I am a skeptic because I was trained in the scientific model," Dr. Phil tells James. "What do you say to skeptics?"
"I lost my father about 12 years ago. I would love to be able to have some dialogue about it."
"Yes, I know," James says.
"You say, yes, you know?"
"He's come through."
"Well, you could also Google that," Dr. Phil says, unconvinced.
"I meditated this weekend, and I thought of you. A man came through, and I wasn't sure if it was your father or not, and I picked up some stuff. Would you like me to tell you what I got?"
"What did he say?"
"Well, it was a lot of different things. He came in different ways. He had big hands. I feel like he did manual work beforehand. He was a manual worker, got his hands dirty," James reveals. "I kept on getting over and over again, â€˜Please tell him I'm sorry,' that he didn't show you enough emotion like he should have. I feel like you wanted to live up to his way of life, and I just got a sense, like, he's around you, and he said he's been coming to you in your dreams, but you haven't been paying attention."
"That would be true. I don't pay attention," Dr. Phil says with a laugh.
"I also want to say he's proud of you for becoming what you became, and he wanted to tell you that. The two of you were very connected," James says.
"I don't think he believed in this sort of thing."
"What's he doing talking to you?" Dr. Phil jokes.
"I think that he knows I'm going to be meeting you, so they'll try whatever they can to try to get through," James replies.
