What to Expect


What is the difference between a Medium and a Psychic?

All psychics are not mediums...but all mediums are psychic.

Just like all surgeons are doctors but not all doctors are surgeons, a medium is a specialist, if you will. A psychic tunes into the “aura” or energy field of the person they’re reading, and while a Medium can also do this, they’re also able to tune into the energy field of a person who no longer has a physical body.

I am able to connect with both spirits that have crossed over as well as spirits who haven’t - typically called ghosts. Some Mediums can do this, some cannot. A true Medium should be able to communicate with your loved ones who are now crossed over, and I don’t really consider people who channel “angels, guides, and spiritual entities” to be Mediums in the true definition of the word.

Sadly, there are many fakes and frauds, and some “psychics” who claim to be Mediums and are not. While I deliver readings via phone, I do not recommend hotlines or Pay-by-the-minute psychics or networks. Please be careful and check credentials, all psychics are not equal. Remember that all reputable and authentic psychic mediums will have their fees clearly stated.

How Spirits Commmunicate with me and my Psychic Abilities

As a psychic medium, I am Clairvoyant, which means “Clear-Seeing.” I can “see” spirits and images they show me. I am Clairaudient, which means “Clear-Hearing,” so I can hear them speaking to me in my thoughts, telepathically. I will hear names, nicknames, names of places, and other words. Some spirits will whisper to me while some will have direct conversations.

I am “Clairsentient,” meaning I can feel or sense their emotions, pains or injuries they had while in their physical body. I can also sense their personalities, like if they had a great sense of humor, or were stern and serious, etc. I am also “Clairambient,” meaning spirits will occasionally give me a smell that was very symbolic of them. I have Remote Viewing abilities as well, meaning I can psychically tune into a person or a place, somewhere else on the physical realm. As a Medical Intuitive, I also receive health and wellness information in readings pertaining to your physical body.

Every Spirit communicates with me differently.

Some will show me visual images and symbols, while others prefer to “speak” to me with thoughts. As everyone on the physical plane has different personalities, so do spirits. Some are great at this way of communication, some spirits are very new to it.

Skepticism

I believe everyone should have a healthy skepticism about psychic mediums and the process you should expect. Just like in any other field, you have very good psychic mediums with true ability and integrity in their work and you also have some fakes and frauds, as well as a few who have some ability but practice without much integrity or compassion. Psychic Mediums will have different levels of ability, skill, and experience, just like any other profession.

It’s important to do your work and find a legitimate and reputable psychic medium. I hear too many stories from my clients of prior bad experiences, and a lot of bad experiences from carnival workers who are trained to spit out the same script every time someone sits down. Please remember that just because someone may have some psychic abilities doesn’t necessarily mean they’re very spiritually aware or coming from a place of integrity.

In society we have good police and bad police, great doctors operating from a place of humane compassion and doctors who are only in it for the money, and the field of Psychic Mediums is no different. Please check references and do your research on the individual, just like you would do hiring someone to put a new roof on your home.

I do not ever ask for personal information, birthdays, photographs, or anything else. I prefer to know absolutely nothing about the person I’m about to read for. You can even set your appointment in someone else’s name if it makes you feel more secure...alright by me!

Once you’ve found a reputable Psychic Medium, it is important to come to any reading with an open mind. If someone has already definitely decided in their mind that my abilities and gifts aren’t real, it’s very difficult to change that belief. This is especially true if that person has some religious or scientific beliefs that makes them afraid of the process.

Even if I come through with the most mind-blowing and detailed information, the closed or fearful person will rationalize away the experience, just so they find a way to support their already-held belief...that there’s no way this can all be real. I find this to be the most true with people who have a lot of fear or misunderstand death, a strong need to be in control, or feel that the process somehow threatens what they’ve already decided to be the “truth.”

Leave your Preconceived Notions at Home

If you want to have the best reading possible, it’s a good idea to have a few questions ready to ask along the way, or specify a focus for your reading. You can let me have that focus in the beginning of the reading (love, health, work, for example) or you can let me bring forth any information that comes to me. Please remember that I cannot control the world of Spirit and neither can you. The most important thing to remember is that the world of Spirit doesn’t adhere to the laws of logic and reason that we do here in the world of the Physical. This won’t be a rational or logical process.

There is a whole set off laws present in the world of Spirit that are very different than how things operate here in the physical plane. It’s so important for you to realize that you’re not in control of this process, as I am not. I simply act as a channel. Any attempt to control or direct the reading, the spirits, or the information coming through will only cut off the flow of energy and make the reading very difficult. It may also adversely affect your reading and your experience. If someone is ungrateful, controlling, or demanding spirits may stop communicating, information will stop flowing, and the reading will end.

It’s important to be “open” to whatever and whoever comes through. I am only bringing you the message you need to hear in life right now. A message that may seem unimportant at the time of the reading will often have major significance in the future. It’s always best to keep an open mind!

It is very important to remember that not all information that comes through at the time of the reading will make sense. It may never make sense or it may make sense in three days, three weeks, months, or years.

Please do not dismiss any of this information as wrong or incorrect. This is exactly why I give you a recording of your session, so that you might listen to it again and have information validated in the future. Spirits will pass along information, symbols, and words that will only make sense later on, providing you with validation that the spirit of your loved one did come through. When and if this happens, do your homework and ask around your circle of family and friends about any information that might not initially make sense.

Will my loved one with whom I want to speak come through?

I will never make promises. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t...it’s up to Spirit as to whether or not they come through. Often times the Spirits will speak with me before I have to call upon them, but it always has to be voluntary for the spirit. Sometimes they won’t come through for whatever different spiritual reasons. It’s important to remember that your spirits only want to come and say hello and offer comfort, closure, and love...they don’t want to scare you or upset you, so if they feel like you are becoming scared or uncomfortable with the process, they’ll often pull back their energy and stop communicating.

Can I ask questions of my loved ones?

You sure can! Consider me a channel, having the ability to deliver information back and forth  between you and they. All spirits are unique, just like we humans, and they may not give you answers to some of your questions. They will not interfere with your personal growth and experience in life by telling you what you should be doing. Many times they’ll offer their advice or guidance, or even alerting you to things you might need to be aware of in the future.

I also need my clients to remember that once I “open up” I cannot control who shows up to speak. This could be the person you’re looking to speak with, it could be someone completely random in your life. This is a rare and magical opportunity for all involved and it’s understandable for people - on both sides! - to become excited! It may even be someone that’s an ancestor that knows who you are, but you might not have any idea who they are.

Please understand that I am just delivering the information and messages, and I may not personally understand them all. Most information is understandable, some is not, but I will do my best to describe to you what is being shown to me. I don’t need you to give me information but I might have you validate what’s coming through so I can better understand the information that I’m being given.

How do I “hear” the information coming through?

When I hear information and names, please keep in mind that I am not hearing them with my ears as I am hearing someone when they speak. I am “hearing” them in thought. I’ll hear names of people, places, nicknames, and sometimes even pet’s names. Sometimes I’ll hear sounds in the name that make me feel like I’m hearing other names. For example, “Mickey” might be “Nicky.” This is definitely not an exact science!!

Spirits may not always tell me who they are, for example a “mother” a “mother-in-law” or a “step-mother” may all feel the same to me. Sometimes they clearly communicate who they are, sometimes they don’t. You can even have people show up that are part of a family from an ex-husband or ex-wife - they’re still connected to you as family. If they show up during a reading, please be receptive of them, as they may be showing up to offer apologies or ask forgiveness.

What about “bad” or “evil” spirits?

Many people have a misunderstanding about what a Medium does and how they work, and that’s understandable when a person comes from a very strict or religious background. I never feel afraid of my dealings with the spirit realm, and neither should you. Know that we are all protected and stand in the light of Spirit.

What about predicting the future?

Some of my clients are interested in communicating with spirits and some simply want clarity and insight into their lives on the physical plane. I am able to look into the future, but not in the way that most people commonly would think. First of all, NO psychic can foresee the future 100% of the time with 100% accuracy, and if they say that they can they’re not telling you the truth. What I see is probabilities, possibilities, and pathways into your future. I can also get a sense of the major energies - both spiritually and physically - that you might come into contact with soon.

Remember that you are writing your future every moment with your thoughts and actions and you can change direction at any time. Your life is a result of a series of choices and the result of those decisions made around those choices. My work is to provide you with insight into those choices that arise through opportunities and obstacles in your life.

No matter what - the choice MUST be, and always is yours to make.

My Gift

People always tell me that I have a “gift.” And I believe I do - a gift that was given to me by my ancestors, and ultimately by spirit. I refer to it as a gift, rather than an ability, as I believe a gift like the ones I have must be used to benefit my fellow humans. If there’s any point to clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience, and all the other senses I have, it’s to help humans.

As I am using my gift, I am bringing gifts to others. Gifts of insight, gifts of knowledge, gifts of change, gifts of the last words from a loved one.

I hope one day I can bring a gift to you.
