needs, wants, and mediumship

When clients visit a medium, they’re likely to come with a certain set of expectations. Often times, clients expect to receive a message from a specific person.
However, mediums cannot guarantee that a specific spirit will communicate during the reading. There may be several reasons why this can happen.
I believe that clients are likely to receive messages from loved ones who need to come through. This means that clients may be more likely to hear from those people first. I believe that the spirit world knows what each of us needs on the soul level. In other words, clients will get what they need before getting what they want from a reading.
However, the spirit world has a way of delivering the perfect message at the perfect time. I understand that this can be extremely frustrating. After my father passed away, I wanted to hear from him. At the time, I attended a local spiritualist church, and I would silently ask my father to bring a message through one of the mediums.
For years, I heard nothing from my father. When I had worked through the worst of my grief, he came through.
Now, I understand that I needed to do some serious inner work before I was ready to hear from my father. I believe that everything happens in its own time. If you’re in a similar situation to what I just described, it does not mean that your deceased family member has stopped loving you. In fact, your departed loved ones love you enough to give you exactly what you need at the right time, and never before then.

Where did God take my pet?

After losing several pets over the years, I’ve often wondered what happens to them after they die. While I am not an expert on this subject, I will try to shed some light on the subject.
I believe that our pets leave their physical bodies and transition into the spirit world just as humans do. Unlike some people, however, their transitions are smoother because they do not have the same judgments, addictions, and other issues that may plague some people. Also, like our deceased loved ones who are human, our pets can visit us through dreams. Several years ago, our family had a cat named Scooby. Whenever I was feeling sad, Scooby would tickle me with his tail, purr in my ear, or just sit on my lap. After he passed, Scooby would come visit me in my dreams whenever I became upset. I’ve also received dream visitations from our tabby cat and our dog. They can also communicate with us through various signs. I believe that they can also conspire to bring other pets into our lives. For example, after our first kitty had passed, I didn’t think I could stand having my heart broken by another pet. However, I believe that our kitty made sure that we are never without a cat. Although I’m convinced, I have no way to prove it. He’ll never tell!

caregiver grief

When you are caring for someone who is near death, it can be both challenging and rewarding at the same time. That is why it is important for you to care for yourself. If self-care is not a priority, you may feel unable to care for your loved one or provide emotional support to friends and family members.
After all, you are also experiencing grief on top of the responsibility of being a caregiver. Try to remember that you are entitled to your feelings.
You are not expected to do this alone, so it is important to ask for support.
After the death of your loved one, it is common to feel guilty and experience self-doubt. However, you most likely did everything that you could for your loved one.
While it was important for you to care for your loved ones’ physical needs when they were still alive, it was more important for you to be present for them. That is why I say that you did everything that you could. Lastly, take care of your own body, and get some rest. After all, you’ve just gone through a major trauma, and your body and mind need to begin the healing process.

What was that incessant knocking?

Many people who have lost loved ones wonder if they are still around and whether they can hear your thoughts without the assistance of a medium. After listening to countless experiences of spirits communicating with their loved ones and after experiencing it for myself, my answer is definitely yes!
They can send us signs of their presence through smells, loose change in odd places, knocking, the list is endless! Since spirits hear and respond to our thoughts, talk to your loved ones and thank them for their continued presence in your life.
If you seek further confirmation that your loved ones are still with you, you can book a session with me at http://www.spiritualreadingsnj.com.

experiencing loss on the holidays

For many people, the holidays are an exciting time of family, friends, food, and gifts. However, there are also people who are dealing with the pain of losing a loved one. Here are some tips for making those losses a little more barable during this holiday season.
The most important thing that you can do during this time is to have compassion for yourself. Remember that you have just experienced a painful loss. You are not expected to “get over it” or “snap out of it already!” Everyone processes grief in his or her own way, so give yourself the gift of that time.
Whether or not you believe in life after death, memories of your loved ones don’t die with them. Remember the good times you’ve had with them.
Do something to memorialize them such as lighting a candle or keeping a favorite picture.
Talk to someone, and don’t hold those painful feelings inside of you. A well-trained grief counselor, pastor, medium, or support group can help you to put these emotions into perspective.
Also, spending time with a friend or family member could be exactly what you need.
Honor your feelings. Know that sometimes you will feel sad, happy, and angry at the same time.
Lastly, spend as much time as you can with those who are still living on the physical plane. They will appreciate it, and you will know that you spent as much time with them as you could before it is their time to go home to the spirit world.
Let me know if any of these tips were helpful. I’d love to hear from you!
