So you’re a psychic? Does that mean you talk to dead people?
I get the most interesting questions in my line of work. The answer to this one is complicated. Here’s how I explain it:
Mediumship is the ability to connect with information that’s coming directly from a soul or consciousness that lives in another dimension, in our words, someone who is no longer living on this earth.
All mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums. In fact, I didn’t know I was a medium until someone asked me to connect with a loved one who had passed on. I’d never done it before, but I said, “Sure, I can try that.”
What I found was that when I’m functioning as a medium, I access information differently than when I’m working as a psychic. Psychic information is not personal; it’s like a universal database. The best way I can describe it is to say that psychic information feels as if it’s coming from a grid of information, and I tap into that grid.
The information that comes when I’m accessing my medium abilities is very personal. I simply ask my client for the person’s first name, and then I put the name out there and invite them in. Then I wait. The connection usually comes quickly. I can feel the presence when they check in, and it usually comes with some sort of feeling of what they were like on this earth, shy or confident or quick to laugh. It’s a sense of the overall energy of who that person was. Then the communication starts. It can be about anything and it’s rarely about their death! Clients often want to know about their loved ones deaths, but that is rarely what the spirit wants to talk about. They’re done with it! And they won’t always answer direct questions, which clients can find frustrating. Believe me, there’s nothing I can do to get a soul to answer a direct question. As with any interaction here on earth, you cannot force someone to respond.
I’m also asked if I need to be face to face with my client. Absolutely not! Information is energy. It is not bound or confined by time and space. I can work with a client by phone, by email, and in person. I can even work FOR another person, not the client. More about that in my next post.
Finally, people usually want to connect with a loved one for no particular reason at all. By this I mean they don’t want to know where the hidden money is buried, they don’t want to know if dying hurt, they don’t want to know if Dad was really married four times. They just want to know if their loved one still IS. Not so much are they okay more like are they AT ALL? They want reassurance that this person who was so incredibly important in their life hasn’t simply stopped existing. And that’s an incredibly gratifying part of this work, feeling the relief that comes for clients when they realize their loved one still exists, still loves them back, and always will.
In my next post, I’ll tell you about a few of my favorite mediumship experiences.
