What is a medium?
A medium is a person who is sensitive to vibrations from people that have passed into the spirit world. A medium is also able to translate these energies into messages from these spirits.
Do you actually see spirits (clairvoyant)? Or, are you primarily clairaudient, clairsentient, or a combo of these?
Spirit communicates with me in all these ways. Spirit usually communicates through the path of least resistance, so I don't normally have control over which sense the spirit will use. Spirit will sometimes show me symbols to relay into a message or even show me what they looked like when they were alive.
Do you meditate every day? For how long? What technique(s) do you use?
I deliberately try to meditate every day for 20-30 minutes. Not only does it help to strengthen my connection with spirit, its gives me peace of mind and allows me to maintain more balance in my life. Check my "links" page for links to websites that describe various meditation techniques.
Are you able to control whether you're "open" or "closed" to spirit communication?
For the most part, yes. This comes with much practice. As a child, I was not able to control my gifts. Through studying and practicing various techniques of mediumship, I am able to "tune-in" when I want to. I couldn't go around all day constantly sensing people's energies and spirits.
Do you work with a guide/gatekeeper on the other side?
I actually have several guides that I work with, but I have two that I use mainly for communication purposes. We all have around 5 main guides that have been with us since birth.
Do you believe demons exist? Can they bother or possess people?
I don't believe in demons, per se. But I do believe that negative spirits exist. They can affect people if people are open to them and acknowledging them. Many people don't realize this, but spirits are people too. And how do you get rid of harmful or annoying people? You ignore them. People HATE that. Eventually they will leave you alone and go away.
What happens to people who commit suicide?
This is my personal belief only, but I believe we all go the spirit world, no matter how we transitioned. People who commit suicide certainly do not go to the fiery pits of "hell" or anything like that. And they still can be communicated with.
Do you have any tips on how to spot a phony medium or psychic?
First and foremost, use common sense. If a medium or psychic tells you that you are cursed and charges an exorbitant amount "remove" the curse, run kicking and screaming in the opposite direction. If a seemingly legit medium is just not connecting well, then say so and more than likely, your fee will be refunded.
Do you use tarot cards, ouija boards, or crystal balls in your readings and s?nces?
I use no tools whatsoever. I do believe that spirit can communicate through these devices, I do NOT normally use them in my work, unless requested.
Is there a time when I can ask questions?
I always allow time to ask questions during the last part of the reading. It is always helpful to have questions prepared before the reading, because you will most assuredly forget something if you rely on your memory alone.
What is the difference between a mediumship reading a psychic reading?
There is a major difference between the two in that psychics get their information from the energy around you. AKA- your aura. And mediums relay messages from those in the spirit world who wish to communicate.
