This series examines some of the most common messages that the spirit world tends to share with sitters.

 

One of the many things that your passed love ones want to share is the fact that they remain near, even after death. For many sitters, this is a difficult concept to grasp. Many of us have been raised (by faith or tradition) to believe in Heaven or afterlife as a faraway concept. We may believe we will be reunited with our passed loved ones after we die, but we don’t recognize their continued  presence in our life on Earth. Your loved ones continue to be present in your life- This is one of the most fundamental truths that I have learned as a medium, 

 

How does Spirit show their presence? Often, I will see images of signs and symbols that a passed loved one uses to communicate with a sitter. I have been shown pennie, specific birds/animals, rainbows, clouds, etc...When I ask a client if they...

Messages From Spirit: BE PRESENT in every day moments

This series examines some of the most common messages that the spirit world tends to share with sitters.

 

I have noticed that, whenever I look back at old photos, I am often struck by the most mundane details. I love seeing the toys, stuffed animals, and books  in the background of the pictures from the days when my kids were little. These items are long gone now, but I find myself wishing I would’ve taken more photos of rooms, still-life images of the mess.

 

In the same way, I love seeing photos of my own childhood... the faded tan wallpaper in our 1980s kitchen, the once-familiar strawberry glasses my grandma used to pour Coke in when we visited.  I am always struck by the importance of these seemingly small details that I took for granted. The were so much a part of the “background“ that we assumed they would always be there.

 

When a sitter comes for a reading, these little details...

Messages from Spirit: DON'T STRESS about little things

From the series of blog posts: Messages from Spirit

This series examines some of the most common messages that the spirit world tends to share with sitters.

 

I can't tell you how often I have sitters visit with specific questions for their passed loved ones. How does Dad feel about where he is buried? Is Mom OK with the way we distributed her china collection? Is my sister still angry about the fight we had before she passed? Is my husband mad that I sold his car after he died? 

Over and over again, your loved ones in spirit reiterate the same message: don't stress about the small stuff. All of the things that you are worried about here on Earth no longer bother your loved ones in Heaven. The things we focus on and worry about and obsess over are often revealed to be "no big deal". Your loved ones frequently show me their vast view of our lives on Earth, looking down on our experiences with LOVE... and noting that the things we worry about are tiny dots on the map.

Messages from Spirit: FORGIVE

This series examines some of the most common messages that the spirit world tends to share with sitters.

 

I am always touched when a loved one in spirit visits during a reading to ask for forgiveness. This has been a common theme of my readings, and the circumstances surrounding the request can vary. Passed loved ones may want forgiveness for the way they treated others during their lifetime. They may need to be forgiven for not understanding or showing love to the sitter when they were alive. Often, I hear parents (in spirit) apologize for not being more present in real life, by putting work and other obligations before family and friends. I have also witnessed the spirits of passed loved one return to apologize for choices made when they were battling their own addictions and mental illnesses. 

 

Many times, sitters are confused by these apologies. They tell me that their loved one has nothing to apologize for,...

Messages from Spirit: HEAVEN is all around

From the series of blog posts: Messages from Spirit

This series examines some of the most common messages that the spirit world tends to share with sitters.

 

I have found that clients often visit me, wanting to know that their loved one has "made it" to Heaven. This idea is particularly prominent in the predominantly Catholic-Christian area that I serveOne of the most comforting messages that I continue to receive from Spirit is that Heaven is all around us. 

 

This can be an unsettling thought to those raised with the idea that Heaven is a faraway, magical place. However, many of my sitters find it healing to know that their passed loved ones remain close by. Passed loved ones often show me their version of Heaven: a childhood kickball game in the old neighborhood, a rustic cabin in the woods, a scenic green golf course in Ireland. These scenes are always different, but my clients can relate and recognize them EXACTLY as how they would describe their loved...

Messages from Spirit: FIND JOY

This series examines some of the most common messages that the spirit world tends to share with sitters.

 

When my mom passed, I knew to look for a sign from her. We had prearranged that she would send something to me to let me know that she was OK and had made it safely to "the other side". I even tried to get her to identify what she would send me, so that I would know what to look for... but she drew the line there by saying "I'm not sure they let you pick your signs over there" :)

 

Exactly one week after she passed, to the minute, a little hummingbird flew by while I was talking to my neighbor. Immediately, I felt a familiar recognition. It felt like my mom had just flown past. I brushed it aside until later in the evening, when I was pulling weeds in the back yard (ironically, something that my mom loved to do). Out loud, I said "Mom, if that hummingbird was you, I just need one more sign". 

I rounded the...

Online ZOOM readings

Uncategorized Jun 16, 2021

When I first started my training as a medium, most of my readings took place online through the ZOOM videoconferencing app. Every week, I would gather on ZOOM with my class of 10 students and our mentor, Lindsay Marino. We would receive our lessons and instruction, and then Lindsay would bring in clients (also via ZOOM) for us to practice reading.

 

In the beginning, I was skeptical. How could I possibly read someone who was so far away? I went to college in the late 90s, when email was limited and ALL classes took place in lecture halls. I was an elementary school teacher in the early 2000s, when the idea of “technology in the classroom” was a film shown on TV or MAYBE a Powerpoint presentation. The  idea of distance learning was foreign to me.

 

When I began working on ZOOM, I was amazed at the ease and flow of readings. As Lindsay explain, “Energy is energy. You don’t have to be in front of someone to connect with it”.  And she...

Lessons from Universe: pay attention to patterns

The Universe has a way of sending a message repeatedly, but in different ways. When looking for guidance, it is important to pay attention to PATTERNS that appear in your life.

 

What do patterns look like? You probably know the feeling of familiarity when you hear a phrase, and then it jumps out at you again a couple days later in print. Someone may offer you advice, only for you to remark “That’s the second time I’ve heard that recently!” You may bump into someone you haven’t seen in a LONG time, only to see them again and again over the course of the month. If you work in customer service, you may notice clients sharing similar complaints around a matter during a small time frame. None of these coincidences are accidental. Pay attention and ask: What is the Universe trying to tell me?

 

I have started to keep a journal of patterns that reveal themselves in my readings. Recently, many sitters end their readings by asking for more information...

Lessons from the Universe: boundaries are healthy

Most empaths are givers. We value the feelings and emotions of others, and will often do whatever we can to help. Because we can FEEL and empathize with the emotions of others, we will go out of our way to make them happy (Thus, keeping our own world pleasant, we think)

 

How often have you volunteered your time when you didn’t have a spare minute? Offered to help a friend financially when money was already tight for you? Given someone patience and the benefit of the doubt when their words/actions didn’t warrant it? 

 

Think about how you feel when you put the wants/needs/opinions of others above your own, repeatedly, to your own detriment... Most of us walk out of these scenarios feeling drained and irritable. We take care of everyone else, but no one takes care of us!

There is a fine line between being generous and being taken advantage of- this is where healthy boundaries are important. My good friend Sara has the best philosophy about boundaries: ...

Lessons from the Universe: trust divine timing

I am always granted this important reminder when people arrive for their scheduled appointment: TIMING IS NOT AN ACCIDENT. TRUST THE UNIVERSE TO GUIDE.

 

I can’t tell you how many times people have come for their reading and been visited by an unexpected spirit, a bonus visit- not the one they were hoping to talk with. (We usually will get to the one they were hoping for later in the reading) The message from this visitor is always very timely, and many times a sitter will say “I just realized he passed away 5 years ago today” OR “Strange, tomorrow would be her birthday”

The Universe (and the spirit world) sends you the perfect visitor at the perfect time, well aware of timing long before we are.

 

Have you ever been faced with the feeling of WANTING something so much, only to find out it isn’t available to you? That relationship, the new job opportunity, the house that went under contract before you had a chance? If you really think...
