CHIP Coffey was on his riding mower in the yard of his Atlanta-area home a couple of years ago when he came around the side of the house and saw his mother standing there, grinning at him.

Although he’d been praying for that moment for years, his initial reaction wasn’t exactly joy.

“My first thought was, ‘I’ve just had a freakin’ stroke,'” Coffey, 55, recalled during a phone interview. “But I reached up and felt my mouth and it wasn’t drooping. And it wasn’t hot enough for me to have had a heat stroke…

His mother, you see, died in the late ’90s.

In retrospect, Coffey admits his reaction to seeing her — “the most wonderful four or five seconds of my existence” — may have been overly dramatic, considering he’d already been communicating with the dead for years at that point.

In fact, the bespectacled former travel agent quit his day job to work as a psychic and medium full time back in 2001, the year he began receiving messages from the deceased brother of a co-worker. Coffey considers that his first experience with “true interdimensional communication.”

He’s had many more encounters with the supernatural since, as witnessed by TV viewers during his regular appearances on two recent A&E Network series, Paranormal State and Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal.
