When we have an experience, we usually only perceive the event through our own eyes. Those who have met with me for a psychic reading know what it’s like to be on the receiving end when I relay messages from their loved ones in Heaven. They’ve experienced the life coaching, guidance, predictions, and spiritual insights I offer. These individuals know what it’s like to receive a psychic reading, but they’ve never viewed the process through my eyes. If you’ve ever wondered what goes through my head before, during, and after a day of psychic sessions, then this blog is for you. This is a behind-the-scenes invitation view the process from my perspective.
- It’s easier to read strangers than people I already know. It’s true! The psychic process gets tainted when I know too much about a person. If I meet with a stranger and pinpoint her likes, dislikes, tendencies, personal history, etcetera, it delivers validation and a few of those “wow” moments. If I were to give a psychic reading to a friend or family member, I already know too much about him or her to give unbiased intuitive information. This is why I generally prefer to read complete strangers.
- I’m not a mind-reader. I can’t read your mind and I don’t know your deepest darkest secrets. That’s not exactly how psychic abilities work. I can’t abstract your computer password from your brain if you happen to think of it while speaking with me. Furthermore, I won’t be able to tell if you have the song Firework by Katy Perry stuck in your head (man, that song is annoyingly catchy). Don’t worry – your thoughts are safe and private inside your head, even when you’re around a psychic.
- I like it when you share stories about your deceased loves ones when I’m relaying messages from them. As a psychic medium, I’m able to deliver meaningful messages to my clients from their departed friends and family. However, I like to hear the backstory on the meaning of these messages. If Uncle Greg tells me he bowled in the Tuesday night bowling league when he was alive, feel free to respond with, “Yes, he did bowl on Tuesday nights when he was alive, and he won six trophies which we still have in our possession!” (This exact reading took place last week, by the way). Sharing stories about your deceased loved ones honors their memory, preserves their legacy, and helps me get to know them better in the process.
- I often have no idea who I’m reading until that very day. I prepare the same way mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and intuitively, no matter who I’m meeting with. Therefore, I don’t need much advanced notice regarding who I’m meeting with. I usually check the calendar in the morning the day I’m scheduled to give those particular psychic sessions.
- I can’t predict things that are determined by your free will. People often ask me, “Will my spouse and I have more children in the future?” Although it’s sometimes possible to give people this kind of prediction, most matters in life come down to our personal decisions and free will. Rather than asking a psychic about future children, this is a conversation that should probably take place with your spouse. Free will often drives our life more than fate or destiny.
- I’m sometimes embarrassed to relay messages from people in Heaven. One time, a father wanted me to mention how bad his hemorrhoids were when he was alive. I hesitated in delivering such a personal statement, but the information was well received. His wife and daughter started cracking up and said, “Oh my God, he constantly complained about his hemorrhoids when he was alive, and it’s still an ongoing family joke!” A little embarrassment on my end made for some validation on their end. I could share a hundred more stories like this, but I’ll spare you the details.
- I consider myself a professional psychic, not a professional entertainer. Some humor inevitably comes through in my work, but my primary aim is to deliver accurate, compassionate, insightful information. Like a magician who wears a flashy outfit, some intuitives will use their big personalities as a distraction, or to compensate for inaccurate readings. The work of a psychic medium is a process that requires tact, empathy, and reverence – it’s not meant to be a sideshow attraction. Personally, I don’t take myself very seriously but I absolutely do take my work seriously.
- I do not see dead people everywhere I go, but they sometimes come to me in the restroom. Maybe it’s because we’re forced to be alone in a quiet room with nothing but our thoughts when we use the restroom, but spirits often start speaking to me in the restroom leading up to a public gallery reading event. I guess they want to be first in line to have me relay a message to their loved ones. However, when I’m “off the clock”, I purposely shut down my psychic abilities. I don’t want to be distracted by spirits while I’m at the gym or running errands. After all, I don’t want to see ghosts near the strawberries while I’m grocery shopping (unless the ghosts are going to give me valid coupons).
- I love feedback and follow-up e-mails. If your deceased grandma came through in spirit and said that your upcoming test results would turn out just fine, please feel free to e-mail me the next week and report that she was correct. If your guardian angel informs me that your lost earring is in the laundry room, please call me and let me know you found it. I love these follow-up stories and the joy/validation it brings my clients.
- My job is tiring but also very rewarding. A neuroscientist once hooked me up to a brain scanning device that measured my brain waves as I gave him and his assistant a psychic reading. The results showed that when I’m actively using my intuition, my brain is essentially overheating, causing me to blow through a tremendous amount of energy in a small amount of time. Much like you, I’m pretty exhausted after a day of work. However, I wouldn’t change it for the world. My work is very rewarding to me, both personally and spiritually. I love meeting with amazing people and hearing stories of perseverance and faith. If I can offer even a small amount of inspiration, validation, or direction, it makes it all totally worth it. As far as the brain scan, I was simply happy they found a brain in there at all. When I was a teenager, my mom swore I didn’t have one.
