Frequently Asked Questions...

 

What is the difference between a Psychic and a Medium?
As a psychic, I connect my energy to yours in order to gain insight into your life, answer questions and help you understand where things may be heading, so you are better equip to make decisions that are best for you.

As an evidential medium, I use my skills to connect with people and/or pets who are no longer here on the earth plane, who have crossed over to the next dimension.  My goal is to bring forward information about your loved ones in spirit, that can conclusively prove they are communicating with us and more importantly, that they are still with you.  This can include information about their appearance, how they passed, items you may now possess from them, favorite sports or teams,  favorite memories, as well as current details to show they are aware of what’s going on in your life right now.  A good medium works to bring forward as much evidence as possible, to help clients feel confident in a spirit communicator’s identity.

How I receive information during a reading...
There are different ways psychics and mediums receive information.  They can hear (clairaudience), see (clairvoyance), feel (clairsentience) or just “know” (claircognizance) information.   Most people, have an ability in at least one of these areas and a well-trained psychic medium will have taken time over many years, as I have done, to strengthen and develop their senses in order to do this work.  Clairaudience (clear hearing) is one of my stronger senses and I have been hearing my guides, loved ones and angels talking to me all my life.  I often see visions in my mind’s eye as well as feeling pain, pressure, or ailments that have occurred for others, within my own physical body.  While in other instances, I  know things without explanation, except that I just know.  In all sessions, I trust spirit to guide me in linking with your energy for your highest good, and to connect with your loved ones, to bring forward the information they came to share.

What if I don't understand the information shared?
Sometimes, working with the spirit world can feel like playing a game of Charades, as we work together to communicate effectively.  I may not get everything right, especially as words or names can have similar sounds.  However, things that may not seem “right” during a reading, often become clear with time. 
Be patient and allow things to unfold as they will.  It’s not uncommon for people to reach out to me, even years later, to share a situation that occurred just as I said, even if they may not have understood it at the time.  No psychic is perfect and information shared regards potential outcomes.  In all things, humans have free will and we make decisions that can alter our future every day.  In the end, the choices we make are always our own.

It may also happen, during a mediumship reading, that information shared from a loved one in spirit, cannot be verified by the sitter (client).  This could be something of which they are simply are not aware, or even something that happened before they were born.  In this instance, I recommend checking with other family members where possible, as they may have more knowledge of the person or situation.  It’s amazing what you can learn, and spirit always has a reason for what is shared.

How can I be sure the one with whom I want to connect will come through?
While I can’t guarantee who comes through in a reading, I always trust that Spirit will work it out for your highest good and the information you are meant to have, will come through in the best way possible.

I am concerned something “bad” may come through...
People often tell me, “I don’t want to know anything bad.”  For me personally, I do not believe in “good” or “bad” information, “bad” or “evil” spirits and, I do not believe in Hell.  In all the connections I have made to people in the world of spirit, there has never been communication that would lead me to believe there is anything other than love waiting for us on the other side.  Information cannot hurt us, and we can often make better choices for having had it.  I believe that too often we can allow fear to guide us, creating an assumption of “bad” spirits.  However, from everything I know, or have experienced, the Universe is made from love, and that’s where we return. 

Believe in the Light and trust the Universe.  That doesn’t mean there won’t still be challenges or that “bad” things won’t happen.  It means trusting that all things work together for good and believing the Universe really does have your back.  There are blessings in all things, even the tough stuff, if we’re willing to look for them.

Is it better to bring prepared questions or do you prefer to let information flow?
I prefer to allow spirit to lead the way and receive the information they feel is most important to be shared. 
However, I always leave time in a session, to ensure your questions have been answered to the best of my ability.

Should I bring pictures of my loved ones in spirit, or items that belonged to them?
I love to see pictures and items that belonged to those who’ve crossed over.  Though it is not necessary for me to have them to connect to your loved one, I always enjoy the experience.  I wish for you to feel comfortable and safe during our time together and if it helps you to share these items, I encourage you to do so.

Things I'd like you to know...

I am a regular person, just like you.  I’m a mom, a wife, mother, daughter, friend, and many other things. 
I do not consider my abilities to be a “gift” as if I’ve been given something special.   I think of them as skills and I have worked and trained for many years in order to further develop them.  All of us have some level of these abilities, think of the last time you followed your own intuition or had a gut feeling about something.  Anyone can learn to further develop these skills as well, and it is truly a joy for me to teach others to do so.
 

At your appointment, we will likely chat for a minute, especially if it helps you feel more at ease.
- A signed release form is required (a copy of which can be found in the Terms & Conditions section.)
- Before we begin,I will share with you how I work, much of which is included in this section, and I will answer 
    any questions you may have.
- I'll ask you to relax, take a few cleansing breaths and hold the person you’d most like to connect to in your heart.
- I always begin with a prayer to better connect with you, your energy and open the door to spirit.  I also ask for love      and protection to surround us while we are working.
- Questions are always welcome and we will likely converse back and forth a bit as I share information or ask for
    clarification.
- It may seem like I'm focused somewhere else while we work, as I am looking, feeling and listening to the
    information being shared with me from the other side.
- If you have pictures or items you would like to bring to your reading, please feel free to do so.
- I encourage you to come with an open mind.  This should be an enjoyable experience, filled with love and healing.
   

While you don’t necessarily need a medium to connect with your loved ones in spirit, as they really are still with us, sending signs, butterflies, pennies, flickering lights, etc…  Working with a trained medium can be an incredible and healing experience.  A professional medium can bring forward multiple people or pets and provide more detailed information about each of them and their lives here on Earth.  Most importantly, they can objectively make sure you fully understand the messages your loved ones send through.

If you’d like try to connect with someone on the other side yourself, start by looking at their picture and holding your love for them in your heart.  You may be surprised by the strength of your connection, as they are often just as eager to connect as we are.  Messages from spirit always come from love and are meant to help and heal.  Our loved ones have no wish to upset us, and if they think it will scare us or exacerbate our sadness, they may choose not to step forward.  

I hope this information is helpful to you.  If you have any further questions, please fill out the Contact Form to message me directly.  I look forward to working with you.

When you come to the edge of all the light you know,

and you are about to step off into the darkness of the
unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen:

There will be something solid to stand on

or you will be taught how to fly...
