Please don’t test the medium.

As both a professional and a consumer, I understand the importance of finding a professional who can meet your needs and help you to feel comfortable. However, as a medium, I deserve as much respect as any professional.
There are ways to locate the right psychic or medium for you while being respectful. For example, one can read about my services on my website or visit my social media pages.
However, I do not wish to play a round of test the medium with you. While it is perfectly okay to ask me questions such as how I receive information from the spirit world or how long I have been doing this work, I cannot entertain questions that are designed to test my accuracy. It is not only disrespectful to me, but you are wasting your time as well.
Your loved ones would most likely prefer to let you know that their souls have survived physical death, as well as give you messages of healing, comfort, and guidance. I apologize if I have offended anyone, but these things need to be said.

question series pt 1: Getting Started as a Psychic, Medium, or Healer

From time to time, I receive questions from clients as well as people who are interested in my work as a psychic medium. These questions range from how I operate my business as someone who is blind to how I receive information during a reading.
I will continue to explore spiritual and self-help topics on my blog, but I thought that it would be helpful to address these questions. Chances are high that some of you had them, too.Today, I’m going to try to answer one of these questions.
Question. How can I become a psychic, medium, or spiritual healer?
Answer. First of all, if you have been having consistent thoughts about this for a while, that is most likely your intuition telling you to go for it! Secondly, and most importantly, why do you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer?
This is important because like attracts like. If your intention is service, you are on the right track. However, if you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer because it seems like an interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon, this may not be the right path for you. Also, if you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer in order to acquire fame and fortune, you may want to take some more time to think through your decision.
At any point during this process, it is helpful to do your research. Talk to a reputable psychic, medium, or healer who can guide you in the right direction. There are also several books, articles, and videos on these subjects. Then, if you’ve decided that this is something that you really want, seek out a spiritualist church or metaphysical center. I believe that anyone who is sincere and dedicated can develop as a psychic, medium, and/or healer. Lastly, be prepared to begin or continue your own self-work. Remember that in order to help others, you must learn to help yourself.
If you need help with this process, don’t be afraid to ask a trusted friend, spiritual teacher, therapist, or coach.

why I don’t Predict the Lottery

As a psychic medium, I explore a wide range of issues with clients, from grief to finding the perfect job. However, when someone asks me to predict their lucky numbers or help winning the lottery, I’m hopeless.
At this point, some of you may be asking why. As a psychic, shouldn’t I be able to predict these things? Not necessarily.
There are several reasons why this information doesn’t come to me even if I am asked for it. First of all, random number generators are used to pick lottery numbers. That means that even if I provided this service, there is a small chance that I could predict the winning numbers with accuracy. Also, when I provide psychic guidance for someone, I would rather spend my time and energy by empowering that person. For example, rather than predicting your lottery numbers, it is more likely that I will provide insights into your financial situation. I might also guide you toward opportunities that would help you to attract financial success and abundance into your life.

self-acceptance:a challenge and a gift

Recently, I attended a funeral for one of my aunts. After the funeral, all of us gathered at a local restaurant. I found myself sitting next to the pastor. Everything seemed to be going well until he asked me about my job.
For a moment, I was terrified. How could I explain that I am a psychic medium to the pastor of a somewhat conservative church? Somehow, my tongue came untied. I explained that although I started out in the social work field, I found that there are other ways to help people. I feel much more comfortable with telling people what I do than when I first began. I have learned to accept myself for who I am, and I’ve learned to accept myself exactly as I am at this point in my life. Do I always get it right? Hell no! Am I still harder on myself than I need to be at times? You bet!
However, I am learning to accept myself exactly as I am in this moment.

why life’s twists and turns are worth it

When I was younger, I felt the need to plan every aspect of my life. I planned to go to college to become a social worker. I also planned to get straight A’s in college, but that didn’t quite happen, either.
However, what actually happened was much more exciting! After struggling through college for seven years, I learned to cope with stress and manage my time. I was also challenged to start accepting myself, write a killer essay, and manage negative emotions.
Also, I met some amazing people and got the chance to mentor other blind students on campus. I laughed, I cried, and I struggled my way to my degree. Oh, and I was also doubting my decision to be a social worker.
After graduation, my doubts continued to grow. I knew that I wanted to explore spiritual work as a psychic or a coach, but I didn’t even know where to begin. Could I run my own business? Should I find a mentor, and how would I explain my career decision?
I tried to put off my ambitious business plans until I received my masters degree. However, something happened while I was filling out my grad school applications. While I can usually write an essay without difficulties, I felt completely blocked! Now, I know that I was not being true to myself. Several months later, I received a rejection letter from my first-choice school, but I ignored that sign. I began to apply for jobs, and I was rejected by every single agency. Yikes! The universe was working overtime to get my attention. Meanwhile, I was still receiving messages from spirits, but I was determined that I would only work as a psychic because I didn’t think that I could ever be “good enough” or “enlightened enough” to work as a medium.
I was encouraged and inspired to start a business by my current coach and mentor, so that’s what I did. Yes, there have definitely been some bumps along the way, and there were definitely times when I felt so frustrated that I was ready to give up. However, the journey was definitely worth it, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

celebrating your accomplishments

Many of us, myself included, don’t take enough time to celebrate our accomplishments. Instead, we have a tendency to focus on our failures and mistakes. However, that will only lead to more of the same thing.
I made a list of ten biggest accomplishments, and I challenge you to do the same. You will most likely notice an immediate shift in your energy.

1. overcoming my fears and stepping into my power as a psychic medium

2. landing an awesome volunteer position

3. graduating from college with a degree in social work

4. taking voice lessons

5. educating students, professors, and administrators about blindness

6. attending college despite severe depression

7. skydiving

8. making the decision to ask for help when I was depressed

9. hiring a coach to help me with my business and limiting beliefs

10. graduating from high school

Okay, your turn. After making this list, I want you to look at it each day, especially when you need a boost.

“coming out” as a psychic medium:my story

Prior to “coming out” as a psychic medium, I was a wreck. I was terrified that I would be judged, but then I had to remind myself that people like me aren’t burned at the steak anymore. It just doesn’t happen around here.
Besides, it was really difficult to lead a double life, and I could no longer hide something that was a part of me. I don’t have a dramatic “coming out” story because it happened gradually.
I attended a small Catholic college, so I definitely felt that I had to be careful about that. However, there were a few people who I trusted enough to begin to make small disclosures. Of course, I still wasn’t comfortable talking about my experiences with spirits because I couldn’t deal with that. That was fine for other people, but not me.
Then, a couple of years after I graduated, I signed up for a series of group coaching calls. The coach uses psychic abilities in her practice, so I knew it was safe to tell the group that I was psychic, and I wanted to use my abilities to help others. I still wasn’t ready to admit that spirits were regularly talking to me. Then, weeks later, a medium came to our house to read for all of us. When it was my turn, she noticed that there was a conflict around career. She asked me if I really wanted to be a social worker, and I told her that I wanted to work as an intuitive because I was too chicken to use the word psychic! She encouraged me to do this work after developing my abilities even further. She said that I also had some other abilities, and I was divinely guided to take a mediumship class.
I built up the courage to tell my family, and I think that they waver between concern and excitement for me. I learned that it doesn’t matter what others think about your choices in life because it’s about being completely authentic and true to yourself.
