21 Signs You’re A Psychic Medium

Do You Feel Different or Misunderstood?

Do you wonder if you have extrasensory gifts? Have you had some unexplainable experiences but you are unsure what they meant? In fact, you may not even be sure if they were even psychic in nature at all. Did these experiences make you feel different than everyone else or that you were misunderstood or didn’t fit in? If you thought you were nuts … take peace in knowing, you weren’t.

Early on I threw my hands up a time or two because I didn’t know what was happening to me meant. At times, I was sure I was just imagining things. Sound familiar?

Do you have vivid dreams, daydreams, or visions that come to pass? Perhaps you see shadows occasionally? If you do, it’s okay to embrace that!

So, let’s clear the air and put everyone’s mind at ease. Here’s a list of common traits and experiences psychic mediums have. Which ones have you experienced?

Signs You’re a Psychic Medium

  1. In life, especially as a child, you felt different. Did you feel like you didn’t quite fit in? You might even feel this now. Perhaps you can’t quite place these feelings yet you have always had a knowing there was something different about you. You might notice, as a fallout from this, that you yearn for real, true, deep connections with people in your world. It may even be that you can’t seem to find your tribe and/or people you resonate fully with.
  2. You see things in your peripheral vision or you see images and pictures that might present like a mini movie and which prove to be accurate. This is called clairvoyance. You might also see orbs, shadows, sparkly or flashing lights. You may be clairvoyant!
  3. Do you pay attention to your dreams? If so, you understand that dreams have an unfathomable ability to deliver profound messages, spiritual insights, and guidance, unlike other avenues of mental access. Do you have frequent or vivid dreams? You may even recall experiences of astral travel or have vivid dreams of past lives or people you never met. Each form of a dream is a message. If you are in tune to this knowing you are very well a psychic medium in bloom.
  4. You pay particular attention to your inner voice sometimes called gut sense and listen to its urgings and nudges. This is called claircognizance. Claircognizance messages may come to you in many ways. They can present in inspired ideas, dreams, through automatic writing, while drawing or playing a musical instrument. Often, messages present while in meditation or while giving or receiving intuitive or psychic readings.
  5. You may recall seeing spirits or passed over loved ones at a very young age. Children are still very connected to the spirit world since it’s not so long ago that they arrived. Futher, they don’t yet hold deeply entrenched belief systems that it’s not possible and even ridiculous to connect with spirit. It’s quite normal for children to play with seeming imaginary friends. If you had spirit experiences at an early age or sense the presence of Spirit as an adult, you could be have mediumistic abilities.
  6. You pay attention to your body and are in tune with it. Empaths very often experience this. In fact, many empaths are natural healers and will actually feel the illnesses, aching, pains or physical symptoms of others when they are near them.
  7. You hear voices, humming, buzzing, and whooshing sounds? Perhaps you hear musical tunes and jingles or experience ear ringing? This is known as clairaudience. These are very natural sounds and are nothing to be in fear of. They can seem like they’re inside your head (like the sound of your own voice) or outside as if someone were right there talking.
  8. Do you awaken at the 2 am hour feeling restless, anxious or ready to get up? This is a unique time in the day and often a most receptive time for spirit interaction and communication.
  9. Do you have a strong affinity toward angelic energies and/or feel like angels were near as a child? Spirit energies vibrate at a unique level. Think of it like a super-fast frequency. If you could sense that energy at an early age it’s highly likely you’re indeed psychic and connecting to higher angelic energies.
  10. Light interference! Have you ever noticed strange electronic phenomena happening in your presence? Better yet, are you turning on and off streetlights when you walk by? Do electrical appliances flicker or turn off and on when you are near? Perhaps you cannot wear electronic watches because they just stop working in time? This is a real phenomenon and happens because your vibration is so high – that of psychic energy.
  11. You receive guidance and intuitive insight through your body – clairsentience. Messages like this can present through your physical body in actual body sensations. Body messages can be felt either outside or inside the body. You may feel a touch on your shoulder or an itch on your skin. These all have meaning. From inside your body, you might notice a twinge inside your belly or an ache inside your foot. You walk into a room you have never been in and instantly you get chills, shiver or notice the energy in the room is different or even heavy. You might find yourself saying “It feels odd here” or in turn “I love how it feels here!”
  12. You feel the presence of Spirits. It’s as if someone is right there with you, but in spirit energy not real human form. Sometimes this will manifest in a feeling like you’re being watched. When this happens notice your emotions as you may feel a shift of emotions and overcomes with an out of place sadness or even glee connected to the spirit presence.
  13. You must have pockets of quiet in your day and you make time for solitude, taking advantage of opportunities to contemplate the mysteries of existence.
  14. You understand animals, can communicate and bond with them easily. In essence, you get each other. Is there an animal that captivated you as a child? Do you feel a deep connection to a particular animal? What animals do you see repeatedly? Consider animal traits/characteristics. Which animal most closely associates with your personality? Begin to ponder these questions more to help this ability flourish. The connection to animal kingdom is indeed an indication of your psychic ability.
  15. Do you cherish creativity and put time into feeding that creativity? Artists, authors, musicians and the like are accessing the higher realms as they open to and merge with their creative essence. Mozart in depth of his expression through the piano was firmly entrenched in psychic functioning.
  16. Are you afraid of the dark? Does the dark bring out an otherworldly knowing within you? You’re not alone. Many with unique psychic abilities have a similar fear and prefer to sleep with lights on.
  17. You felt a very strong bond to a loved one after they passed away. I was very close with my grandmother. After she transitioned to the Other Side I felt her near me at all times. It was unmistakable to me and I just knew she was present helping us all with our healing. I received signs and symbols such as seeing her name and birthdate everywhere and constantly. I smelled her perfume in the air amidst a long bike ride 50 miles away from home – the most unlikely place! Do you have a unique and special bond with a loved one? Even long after they pass, they may still visit you often.
  18. Do you find that family and friends come to you to divulge their life issues and problems? You always seem to give the right advice and the right time and sometimes you don’t understand where what you’re saying comes from yet the words and right counsel just flow. Sometimes you don’t even recall all that you’ve said after the fact. You see that those you help are always soothed and you too feel a sense of deep fulfillment. Why? You’re smack dab in the middle of channeling the Divine.
  19. Are rules and regimen stifling to you? Is freedom essential? Does strict regime, procedure and guidelines make you feel uncomfortable or controlled? This is an indication of your psychic tendencies.
  20. You are easily overstimulated? Meaning, you loathe loud or crowded places, bright lights or strong smells? Do airports, zoos, amusement parks and sensory rich places make you want to sleep for hours after you experience them? This is because you are an empath, highly sensitive and/or clairsentient – very sensitive to energy!
  21. Psychic ability is in the family and/or generational. Most psychics were in fact raised by a psychic or someone with such tendencies!

What Being Psychic Does Not Mean

Now that you know the signs indicating you’re psychic, you also want to know what being psychic doesn’t mean.

First and foremost, your psychic ability is much like a faucet. You are in charge of it and you get to turn it off or on when you want to use it. You will not get psychic messages and images all day long. As you develop your abilities you will learn how to turn them off and on with ease.

Next, you don’t suddenly have the ability to read other’s minds. Being psychic is more about self-actualization and is a means to your own spiritual evolution and growth.

As a medium, able to see spirit, they come when you say it’s okay and call upon them. No, you will not see deceased loved ones everywhere. You are in charge communicating with those on the Other Side and when.

You may decide you don’t feel a calling to use your psychic gifts and that’s okay! There are many, many people who are psychic mediums yet they’re content to stay in their 9 to 5, corporate professions. That said, should you decide to put these wonderful newfound gifts to work, remember that you must ask permission to read someone. The one thing you can offer without permission is Grounding another.

While you might hone your psychic abilities and practice with family and friends, give this ability the level of respect it deserves. Give yourself time to practice and get better. If you offer psychic insight do so with care, discernment and only when it’s requested.

Take Your Time & Do This Right

It’s an especially exciting time as you realize and explore your psychic abilities. You may find your jaw drops time and again as you begin to see what you’re capable of. You may feel like you want to tell the whole world and offer help to everyone. Be mindful of slowing down, taking your time and allow the awesomeness of your gifts to take shape. Resist telling the whole world you’re a psychic medium. You can share the magnificent beauty of it all in time and as you feel fully ready.

Remember that we are all intuitive it’s just that some have this ability stronger than others and/or some are not inspired to discover this part of themselves yet.

Mediumship Development: How to Initiate Spirit Communication

Initiating Spirit Communication

Interactors are often the ones who initiate Spirit Interactions, but spirits may be the ones to initiate a contact as well. However, it is possible for you to initiate a connection on your own in spite of the fact that you may not have formal training. Here are ways to go about it.

Ask

Spirits will come when invited. They honor your space, and they don’t just drop in without permission. You may want to request they show you a symbol or sign when they are ready to come through. This will give you a clear indication that you have been heard, and the spirit is ready to respond.

Be Open

We often carry certain desires and expectations about connecting with a particular loved one. Try to let go of any preconceived notions of how such an experience should go, and most importantly, believe in the spirit’s ability to reach you. It will come in many forms—some unexpected.

Be Patient

Your loved ones are on schedules of their own and are adjusting to being on the other side in much the same way you are adjusting to their passing. Think of it as if they are getting situated in a new home. Give them time to settle. It will help them make the transition easier. Simply tell your loved ones that you are perfectly willing to receive their messages when they are ready to communicate. Also, remember that wanting to communicate too eagerly may hinder communication. Be decisive, objective, and confident, so the spirit can feel comfortable enough to trust you. Be free of expectations, and the event will come to fruition in a way that is natural and free-flowing.

State your Intention

State aloud your intention to open the door through which to speak and receive messages from the spirit world. Whether you encounter interaction on a personal level or in a formal reading session, know that the universe hears you. There is a divine plan in place greater than you and your intention. Allow things to happen.

Tune In

In your daily meditation, be sure to quiet your logical, left brain thinking. Say hello and then goodbye to your left brain. Make an agreement with your left brain to reconvene at another time. Meditation and a quiet mind will assist in a quicker and clearer connection with a spirit.

Be Aware

The next important step in your journey is watching for signs, symbols, and messages during your day. Links to the spirit world may come in dreams, songs, and in synchronistic-like events, which you assume are coincidences. But, coincidence is nonexistent. Everything is intentional and has a place. Everything is meant to happen.

 Use Your Sense-Abilities

Connecting with the spirit world requires the use of all of your senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, feeling, and seeing. Therefore, the practice of any one of the Sense-Abilities takes your physical senses to a higher spiritual level. It is the practice of one or more of the Sense-Abilities that gives deeper meaning to the function of your senses.

A Technique for Sensing Spirit Energies

Another way to train yourself to be aware of the energies of a spirit is to choose two people (one living and one deceased) whom you know well. Obtain a picture of the people you have chosen. It’s important that you are familiar with the people you have chosen, because you will also be familiar with their energy. It is much easier to learn how to sense energy when you know the persons and have had a relationship with them. Next, have a notebook and pen to record what you experience.

Steps for One Type of an Energy Detection Technique

  1. Sit in a relaxed position. Place your non-dominant hand over the photo of the living person, palm facing upward in an attitude of receptivity. Now give some thought to the person. Remember to be mindful of your breath. You don’t have to look at the photo, but rather, feel the thoughts of the person as the thoughts begin to emanate. Record what memories come to mind, what feelings you sense inside and outside of your body. Can you see what that person is wearing? Do you hear the voice? What is the person saying? Is there a smell present? Or, are you aware of a color? Write everything down that presents itself to you. Information is connected to the spirit’s energy. There is no right or wrong in this process.
  2. When you are ready, go through the same process with the second photograph—the photograph of the deceased person. Again, give an easy and gentle thought to him or her, and just allow yourself to be a receptacle for receiving whatever comes. Sense the energy of the picture, and visualize the individual. Take notes of all that is presented. Take notes about what you learn about them, and most importantly, tune into his or her energy. Release any desire to fixate on any particular thing or memory. Just breathe, and gently focus on sensing the energy there.
  3. Now take time to write down the unique differences between the energy and feeling of the deceased person versus the living person. The feeling may be slight, but trust that your subconscious self has fully grasped this difference. Your conscious self may not be so attentive and may need more time and practice in order to become aware.

Summing it Up

Practicing this technique is a valuable gateway for opening yourself to spirit energies. Repeat this exercise several times. When you become more adept, try adding photographs of people you don’t know, living and deceased. Consider well-known leaders, athletes, and other influential people. The energy of such people is unique, strong, and easier to discern. In time, and with consistent practice, you will be able to clearly distinguish a concrete feel for each energy type.

Psychic Medium Reveals How We Communicate with Loved Ones on the Other Side

Mediumship Messages from Loved Ones

When our loved ones pass away, they often attempt to send us messages for a variety of reasons. Messages can come through a session with a psychic medium or you can receive them on your own. But, you want to know what to look for. Also, Spirit wants to ensure we know they are at peace and they even help safeguard us in certain situations. Signs can come from many different sources, but typically rely on our standard five senses as well as our sixth sense.

You don’t have to be a psychic medium to receive messages from a spirit or a loved one who has passed over to the other side. Signs and symbols from our loved ones happen regularly and in a number of different ways. Once you open the door to those signs and symbols, you will realize they are not just coincidental happenings. Messages come from loved ones in the following ways: Electricity One of the easiest ways spirit come to us is through electricity. Electricity acts as a conductor for spirits. When lights flicker, computers and televisions randomly shut off and on, light bulbs burst, telephones die, and other physical phenomenon occur for no apparent reason, take notice. It may be a spirit attempting to communicate. Stop and take a moment to ask yourself which of your loved ones might be trying to reach you.

Psychic Development: 3 Sensory Ways Our Loved Ones Communicate

Sight, sound, and smell are three main ways our friends and relatives can communicate from beyond our realm. Of course, we can sometimes see and hear strange things around our home, in our workplace, and virtually anywhere we go throughout the day. It is quite possible that these are signs from our loved ones. Some people capture a familiar scent of flowers, perfume, cologne, or another aroma that would be typical for a person that has crossed over.

RELATED: Spirit Interaction (Mediumship) – The Power of Protection & Energy Cleansing

The Most Unique Way Spirit Interacts & Brings Psychic Messages

The most unusual sense that we can use to communicate with people from beyond the grave is a peculiar feeling or inexplicable sensation that someone or something is near us. This is usually a comforting and relaxing feeling that lasts only briefly, but leaves a lasting impression.

Dreams, electromagnetic shocks, and unusual occurrences related to electricity or objects are some of the common physical manifestations that our loved ones use to make their presence known. Flashing lights, short bursts of electricity or sudden blackouts are often reported within a family home shortly after someone passes away. Every representation is a welcome sign from loved ones who simply want us to know that they are still thinking of us.

PSYCHIC DEVELOPMENT: Intuitive Messages Signals and The Mind Body Connection

Specific Types of Spirit & Mediumship Communication

Dreams

Dreams are one of the best ways to connect with and receive messages from spirits. If you desire to connect with loved ones, simply ask them to come and visit you before you go to bed at night. Then, expect they will come. Don’t try too hard; trust they have heard you and will approach when they are ready. Pay attention to the colors, symbols, words, and people in your dreams. You will know your loved one is communicating because the dream will be more vivid than usual.

Feeling Your Loved One

You may simply feel the presence of a loved one. You may experience a warm feeling or a strong sense that your loved one is nearby. You may feel a chill or a light touch on your shoulder that forces you to turn, finding no one there. It is quite possible that this touch is just one of the ways a spirit is signaling its presence.


Smell

Smell is a strong and powerful way a spirit may choose to communicate. You may experience the smell of a great aunt’s cologne or a grandfather’s pipe tobacco. You may even smell odors of shared times and events. These smells may present themselves at the oddest times, signaling the presence of a spirit that wants to be noticed.

Thinking of Them

Recalling or thinking about a departed loved one is an excellent indication that a spirit is communicating with you. This is especially true if the thoughts are strong and happen at an unusual time or in an unusual place. It is quite likely that a loved one is thinking of you at that very moment or coming to let you know he or she is nearby. Our loved ones on the other side know exactly what they are doing, and they have the ability to be at the right place at the right time.

RELATED: How to Develop Your Mediumship Ability

Coincidence and Synchronistic Events

We are often presented with what might be called a unique, synchronistic event. Be aware of the message. There really is no such thing as coincidence. If you have ever thought of a loved one, are then reminded of favorite song you shared, and later that day, heard it on the radio, it may be the interface of a loved one.

Numbers

Do you see numbers that seem to repeat themselves? Do clocks stop at a certain time? Do license plate numbers have a particularly important sequence? Do you see a loved one’s birth date routinely showing up? It may be the obvious nudge of an important spirit.

The ways in which our loved ones communicate are as varied and complicated as their personalities. There is no one way for that communication to happen. It can be any one or all of those mentioned above. No matter what means is used to get through to you, it is important not to discount the happening. Be mindful of so-called coincidences. Listen, and open yourself to their needs and ways to interact with you.

GOLDEN RULES OF PSYCHIC & INTUITIVE DEVELOPMENT

Here are a few important things to remember in your spiritual growth as you tune into your own psychic and mediumship abilities:

Golden Rules

Rule #1: There is no golden rule! This journey is unique and highly individual. Honor that.

Rule #2: Say what you see! Too often students are afraid to say what they are seeing or recognize it as truth. In so doing they lose valuable and meaningful information. What you are receiving always has meaning.

Rule #3: First-come first truth. As you open this door, trust what comes first. This will be what is most accurate.

Rule #4: You are the boss. Use your own higher knowing and intuition. It is always the most valuable information you can get. Trust in it. Your emotions and gut feeling about things are part of this intuitiveness.

Rule #5: Relax and let the information come. Enjoy the journey as it is a process and it is the ‘process’ that is the gift. Your desire to be right or ‘get’ images is ego and will hinder your connection.

Rule #6: Readings and healings and any other modality while using your intuitive abilities are done with permission of the readee.

Psychic Medium Shares Tips to Decode Your Dreams

Psychic Medium Teaches Why We Dream

We dream because we need to. We must have sleep to rejuvenate and replenish. Dreams are a part of our physiological evolution and make up, and they are necessary. If this weren’t so, we (and all mammals) would have evolved away form the ability to dream long ago. As you develop your psychic gifts, you will learn your dreams are a way to bring psychic messages and insight.

Dreams help to make sure we stay in the necessary sleep state. For example, when the garbage truck rumbles by in the morning, you don’t wake up, yet you do dream of the rumbling thunder storm in your dream. So, the dream allows you to get a good night’s sleep, by uniquely blending in the exterior noises, so as not interrupt this valuable place of rejuvenation.

Dreams are a vehicle to align our emotional selves. When you go to bed feeling upset about something, your subconscious will actually counter the unpleasant feeling by bringing in dreams about pleasant things. You may dream about a happy and fun outing with family, notice vivid and bright colors rooted in good feelings, or perhaps dream about animals that bring you joy. In this way, your dreams become a balancer of sorts so that you awake refreshed and with a new perspective.

Dreams also help us to problem solve. We’ve all heard the phrase, “I’m going to sleep on it.” Though you may not recall how you are problem solving, know that while in dream state, you are indeed doing just this.

Did you know the words to the song “Yesterday” by Paul McCartney were manifested in dream state? The theory of relativity too was captured in a dream state, as was the inspiration behind the creation of the Singer sewing machine. So, the dream state, in a sense, becomes a schoolroom for incredible ideas of creation, innovation and inspiration.

Create a Book of Symbols

The best dream interpreter is YOU. Think of the word web. What would that word have meant 20 years ago as compared to now? One might have thought of a spider web or a tangled mess of something 20 years ago. But today, for many, the word web conjures up thoughts of the World Wide Web and the Internet. Dream dictionaries are not only outdated, but they are impersonal and have universal meanings as opposed to your meaning.

Create a book of dream symbols. Before you go to bed tonight have that blank journal or note pad nearby. Pay close attention to any symbols and jot them down when you awake. Later, this will become in invaluable tool to interpret your dream. Consider an apple. An apple can be a reference to the state of New York, teachers, your iPhone, or health issues and a need for a nutritional change in your life. Each person will be unique in their knowing of what the apple represents. Take some time to discern what each symbol that comes in your nightly dream space means to you.

3 Steps for Interpreting Your Dreams

  • Pay attention to the feeling that is present in the dream space. Be sure to relate that feeling you have to the person or symbol at the time of the dream. As you become more in tune to your dreams you want to explore this fully.
  • Begin dialogue with your dreams. Ask yourself, “How does this dream apply in my awaken life?” Trust the knowing of the dream is being revealed to you and will arrive when you are ready. You want to be patient with the unraveling of the message. It may require that you revisit you dream journal a time or two or even two or three months later. Trust however that the timing of the delivery is divinely meant and over time the meaning will come.
  • Relate your dream to the past, present and future. Ask yourself, “Where is the information I am getting from my dreams going to be most useful?” If you find that your dream is most relevant to your past then you want to take some time to ask yourself why it is that you continue to hold onto it? Understand that your desire to hold onto something becomes you. You become what you don’t let go of. Eliminate what no longer serves you, be it past, present or future.

Dream Tips to Remember

  • Tune into the feeling of the dream first.
  • Give your dream the level of importance it is deserving of.
  • Create your own dream dictionary or Book of Symbols.
  • Remember, you are the best dream interpreter of all!
  • Trust fully that your dreams will enrich your life.

Psychic Development Training! Develop Your Mediumship Using These Powerful Techniques

Psychic Development and Mediumship: What is a Medium?

Mediums use their power to detect and communicate with spirits and those in the afterlife for the purpose of conveying specifically targeted information to a specific, living individual.

When thinking about psychic development, you can think of Mediums as Spirit Interactors serving as live, human interactors for spirits existing on the astral plane. Mediums serve as receptives for multiple types of energy emanating from the spirit world and/or the universal matrix. A Medium seeks out spirits on behalf of the living, and spirits seek out cooperative Mediums for delivering information to the living. Spirits also seek out Mediums in order to be revealed, become materialized, or influence a course of events.

Psychic or Medium Reading? What is the Difference?

In a psychic reading the intuitive generally works directly with spirit guides as well as their own higher knowing to receive information. You may receive guidance and advice regarding your past, present and future. You may also receive information pertaining to health, career, finances, love and relationships as well as guidance for your own spiritual growth and advancement.

In a medium reading the intuitive will link directly with the spirit world and your loved ones who have passed over, bringing any messages they have to you. In this reading you find answers you seek about the Other Side and your departed loved ones. These readings are a wonderful opportunity to understand and learn about the healing power of contact with the Hereafter. Through information received from spirit, you may also at times receive psychic information and guidance about your life. In a medium reading however, the distinction is that the information is presented by spirit.

Be mindful that all mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums.

Why Do Our Loved Ones Come To Us In a Medium Reading?

Spirits come to us for many reasons. It may be simply to say hello, to guide us in our earthly issues and events or to assist in healing and closure of our grieving. I find that often spirit has come to offer an apology. In addition to choosing when, where, and with whom they will send messages through, spirit chooses why they come. It is our task, to listen with an open mind and hear their messages.

Psychic Development: How Can I Prepare for a Medium or Psychic Reading?

  • Sit quietly for a few moments, then tell the spirit you wish to contact that you intend communication. They already know, but tell them anyway.
  • Recall and think about past memories, smells, traits, events or places you traveled with your loved one.
  • Set the intention for a joyful, expectation-free session.
  • Be certain and confident that your loved one has heard you.
  • Please be sure you are in a quiet place for the reading where you will be uninterrupted.

What is an Evidential Medium?

An evidential medium will provide facts about your loved ones they could not possibly have known, such as how they passed, particular events, names, dates and special activities. Often times, specific clear and detailed memories will present. You will know it is your loved one the evidential medium is connecting with based upon the factual evidence presented.

Medium Readings: I Want to Hear From My Loved One Now

You’ll want to be patient.

Please understand that spirit may take time to adjust to the Other Side. Think of it as that they are getting situated in a new home. They need time to adjust their passing in the same way that you do. Giving them this time to settle in assists them and makes the transition easier. Simply telling the universe and/or spirit that you are perfectly willing to wait for a time when they are ready to communicate helps them. You may want to request they show you a symbol when they are ready to come through. Also, remember that wanting to communicate with them too badly may hinder communication and the medium connection.

How Soon Can I Connect with My Loved One in a Medium Reading?

Spirit can communicate regardless of how long they have been on the other side. While some do communicate better than others, they all do have the ability to connect with you, whether they have passed one day ago, one year ago or 20 years ago. You may also notice in a reading that our loved ones often present with many of the similar personality traits and habits that they did while on earth in a physical body.

Language and Medium Readings

There is no language on the Other Side. Spirit communicates from a higher vibration and they are understood regardless of what language they spoke while living on earth. Language is merely an earthly way of communicating and for human sake.

Spirit Transcends to a Unique New Perspective

I have learned that spirits most certainly have come to know a more enlightened state and are more spiritually advanced having passed over to the Other Side. However, spirit is not all-knowing. They often retain much of their personality they had while on earth albeit with a new and profound level of awareness. It is not uncommon during a reading for spirit to present at an age much younger than when they passed. This is because we have the choice, having passed over, to appear however we desire. In addition, near the age of 30 was often an optimal age so many choose to revert back to appearing as they would at that time in their earthbound experience.

Psychic and Mediumship Readings and How Time Works

There is no time on the Other Side, at least to the extent that we know it. However in order to get some sort of glimpse, I have learned through readings with spirit, that things move at a much faster pace on earth. This is, in part, why we come to earth, because the growth is exponential. You might think of it like this: A blink of eye for spirit world is 8 months to you and I. So, in this light, it is a gift to be here on earth, as the growth is immense.

Mediumship Readings Provide Us With a Few More Things

What Do Our Loved Ones Desire for Us?

It is generally the intent of spirit to bring the core of important challenges and issues to the forefront. Sometimes, they desire to do this right away. This is because of an intense desire to bring healing and growth to their loved ones still living. They realize the value of resolving issues and not leaving things unsettled before our own passing. Spirit also understands the importance of unconditional love and that we are all connected. Remember that your prayers for you loved one go a long way. They benefit from this deeply and hear you.

Signs Relating to Our life lessons

While spirit generally comes with wonderfully insightful and profound healing messages, they will never provide information to the extent that they interfere with your life lessons and/or spiritual growth you were meant to incur. Please realize that a medium reading should not take the place of the grieving process. Some find that waiting one to two months after the loss of a loved one to schedule a reading is best.

Mediumship Readings Help You Connect with Your Loved One, But You Can Too

The easiest way to connect with your loved one or your own spirit guides is through your dreams. Dreams bring powerful spiritual messages. Before you go to bed, tell your loved one you desire to visit with them. Offering an invitation is all you need to do. When you least expect it, they will come to you. You will know because your dream of them is especially vivid, full of love and feel good as opposed to fear or dread. There is no mistaking your loved one has indeed come.

A Medium Reading Can Be Life Altering

When you experience validation by a spirit while in a reading, it is enormously powerful to all who witness it. When a spirit comes through in a medium session it is profound. It not only provides validation of your ability to connect to the other side, but it is an indication that the work of Mediumship is for you.
