What should you expect from a psychic medium? In this continuing series, we have outlined some potential client questions. Click here for more related posts.
A: In a psychic medium session, communicating with Spirit is accomplished using one or more of the “clairs” and is generally a very subtle experience. As psychic mediums we might receive a word or phrase, a picture, a download of information telepathically, or a short movie/vignette. When communicating with Spirit to gain clarity, (e.g., “What does this picture mean?”) the information received is sometimes presented in a puzzle for us to solve instead of the spirit explicitly communicating the meaning in words. As a result, psychic mediumship is reliant upon being very sensitive to the subtle methods a Spirit might use to communicate so a clear translation can be made.
Because Spirit communication is so subtle, it is imperative that my energetic aura and immediate surroundings be as clean as possible. This is why my first preference to conduct readings is in my home via telephone or Skype because I can control my surroundings quite easily. Psychic and metaphysical fairs are the most difficult because there is so much energy that it becomes chaotic. The middle ground for us is our office. We intentionally chose not to rent space in a metaphysical bookstore and instead chose a building that houses businesses other than just those in the metaphysical realm. The energy is more neutral, but I still do a fair amount of clearing before I meet with a client in our office building.
Some psychics and mediums intentionally touch their clients either by holding a client’s hands or hugging them as a way to step into the client’s energetic aura to more easily read the client psychically. I intentionally do not do this. I feel it is important for me to only allow my energy in my aura, so I refrain from physically touching clients before or after a client session. Instead, I connect with a client’s energetic aura, but do not step into their aura, nor do I allow a client into my aura.
Through energy clearing techniques, I can get the room (or space at a fair) in which I meet with a client to be relatively clear. However, I can’t clear the smells in a room. When you meet with me face-to-face, because I am so sensitive, I can smell the fragrance of the shampoo you used on your hair, the perfume you’re wearing, and the residual smoke clinging to your clothes from a cigarette. Unfortunately, all of these things can impair my ability to communicate effectively with Spirit. Some smells give me a headache within a couple minutes. However, even if a scent doesn’t make me ill, it may still distract me and impair a session. For example: Sometimes Spirit likes to communicate the fact that he/she smoked while living on Earth by giving me a whiff of cigarette smoke. If you smoke before a session with me, it will be difficult for me to discern whether the smell is emanating from your clothes or is being presented to me psychically.
When scheduling a session, to ensure you have a good experience, we recommend that you find a quiet, comfortable space in which to conduct your telephone or Skype session if we’re meeting with you remotely. We run a ‘white noise’ machine in our office to counteract the sounds of the offices around us when you meet with us face-to-face.
I am also much more sensitive to foods than I was before developing psychically. I eat very little animal protein and have difficulty tolerating sugar, coffee, alcohol, gluten, or any other stimulants.
Hopefully this information gives you some insight into how sensitivities to my surroundings help me to be a clear channel to translate information on your behalf and also some suggested steps you can take (e.g., refrain from wearing scents, smoking before a session) to ensure I remain a clear channel so I am able to provide the best session I can for you.
