Mediums bridge the gap between the living and the deceased.
In other words, a medium is someone who is able to communicate with souls on the other side. There is only a transition from the physical being to the spiritual being...and mediums are sensitive and intuitive enough to hear, feel, and see information coming from the other side." Okay, but how do mediums interact with otherworldly spirits?
There are numerous ways mediums say they can facilitate "conversations" with the deceased. —an Austin based psychic, medium, and tarot card reader, says some choose to undergo possession, acting as a vessel for those spirits needing a human form to communicate with this world. Many mediums are also empathic, and thus are presumably able to share the experiences of those on both sides of the veil, and some, like Chosen Eyes, interact with spirits as clearly as they do with those on this physical plane. Many of us are perpetually dancing between realms. What differentiates a medium from a psychic or clairvoyant?
The distinction between mediums, psychics, and clairvoyants can be confusing. In fact, many believe the terms are interchangeable, but that is not the case. Mediums are able to raise their vibration high enough to connect to the other side. Psychics have the ability to give information about the past, the present, or even the future, but not deliver messages from the other side" while “clairs” receive stronger messages overall, i.e. clairvoyants are clear seeing, clairaudients are clear hearing, and clairsentients are clear feeling. Considering talking to a medium? Here's what to expect.
Since mediums purportedly communicate with those who have passed on, clients should expect to "hear from" deceased friends and/or loved ones. However, the specifics of your sitting will vary. Each medium operates differently, be open to an intangible experience, as well as receiving information that you may not have asked for. Expect some form of guidance, perspective, clarity, and authenticity, and be patient. Mediums are humans filling a heavy space so don't hold them to an unfair standard.
A reading with a medium can change your life—and specifically the trajectory of grief. While it will never obviate the pain of losing a loved one, or take away the sadness of not having their physical presence around, a medium, by bringing through highly evidential and specific information that nobody else could possibly know, can re-establish a connection, and offer a certain level of evidence that the soul survives death. This suggests that not only can we continue to communicate with loved ones on the other side, but that we will be met, on the other side of death, with people who can help us transition.
Belief in an afterlife comes much easier to some people than others, does the brain create consciousness, or are we souls having a physical existence.
Below are some of the most common questions that I get asked by people.
How do you understand what they’re saying?
When I read, I always use the psychic toolbox we all have, the four “clairs.” The other side will use that as a language for me. I believe we all have intuitive and psychic abilities, the volume just isn’t turned up for most people.
There’s clairvoyance, which is clear seeing, and everybody has that, even people who don’t realize they’re psychic. Like when you’re asleep at night, your clairvoyance might open up. A lot of people will have visitations from people who have crossed, or they’ll have pre-cognitive dreams, or very symbolic dreams that will give them information about their path. For me, I might see them in color, or flashes of images about their life.
Then there’s clairaudience, which is clear hearing, and that’s when you hear a thought but it’s not yours. It’s not as scary as it sounds—it might be a name, or a phrase, or a word.
Most us have claircognizance and just don’t really honor it. Claircognizance is just clear-knowing, when you know something with every ounce of your being even when there’s no logical way you could or should.
Last is clairsentience, which most of us have and aren’t using. It’s that feeling in your solar plexus area, when you’re feeling information, or you get gut pulls. A lot of times when you travel, you get filled up with the energy and experience—that’s also clairsentience.
What are some basic tips and tools for opening the mind and intuition?
I think the most important thing is to declare it to the other side, to say, “I am all in, I am open, and I am willing to start receiving more—to open my energy, to hear my spirit guides, and to get signs and messages from my loved ones on the other side. I open my arms and heart to it. Let me start feeling and seeing this life around me every day.” Declaring it is really important.
I always say that it doesn’t matter which psychic ability you start to work on—once you open one, they all open. It will happen no matter which one you’re working on. If there’s one you’re better at, do that.
There are other things that help as well. We all have a mind-body connection, so I think some things are simple, like getting enough sleep. Meditation can shift your energy in profound ways. When we pray we direct our energy to the other side, but when we meditate we listen back.
For people who don’t do this daily, when they go to sleep or they meditate, their brains go offline in a similar way. I have a theory that a lot of children are very psychic and then it stops. When we’re little kids, we use all parts of our brains. All of us come here hard-wired, not only to the other side, to this universal love energy, which I call god and the universe, but also to each other—we’re linked to each other’s energy fields and the other side.
I think between the ages of one and five we really swim around in that. That’s why so many young children will have past-life recall, they’ll know things, they’ll recognize relatives in photos they’ve never met before—”Oh, I know this man, I’ve seen him in my dreams,” or, “I’ve seen him at the foot of my bed.” That is normal to them. But at around age five to seven, all of this stops.
How should one read and interpret signs?
Developing a relationship with your spirit guides can really help you develop all of your intuitive abilities—connect with them constantly and ask them for signs.
If you’re not specific, they’ll use the default signs. The default signs are typically:
1. Coins, as anything metallic is really easy for them to manipulate—like pennies, known as pennies from heaven.
2. They will also send birds, butterflies, bees, deer, or even bats (though they typically don’t send bats, as they’re too scary), because these creatures all use electromagnetism to navigate and so they are easy to redirect.
3. Electrical signals: lights, appliances, empty texts, phone calls from unknown numbers where nobody is on the line, etc.
4. Songs on the radio, playing in stores, etc. They send messages through meaningful songs/lyrics quite often, and music shifts energy and is energy, so that is a bonus.
5. License plates: Look for phrases or number sequences that are important. Keep your eyes peeled!
6. Numbers in general, like on receipts, etc. 1111, 444, 333, etc. are all little hugs and kisses from the other side.
So that you know that it is intentional, ask for something specific, and ask your spirit guides to send you something different than your loved ones. For example, I ask my spirit guides to send me a black cat. When I had a problem to solve I got my answer as soon as I seen the black cat it was the word written on Facebook BLACK CAT. There is a team of light on the other side between your spirit guides, your loved ones, and this god energy—they love you and want to get you on your highest path. It makes you realize you’re very loved.
