He tells us he comes from a long line of people with abilities and the gift of being able to speak with the deceased has been passed down from his grandmother, his mother and to him. He says from a young age, souls would come to him and try to speak with him, something that initially scared a young Matt.
So what does it look and feel like for Matt to see and communicate with people who have passed?
He tells The Doctors that souls will "line up" behind people (and sometimes even embrace or touch them!) and there are times when he feels and sees more souls in a room than actual people. After years of avoiding his abilities, Matt decided to embrace it. and now uses his connection with the other side to help others. "I realized this was actually a gift... and if I felt something, I could help relieve people's guilt or the burden of losing somebody."
