As a professional psychic, medium and energy healer, I get this question in many forms, often.   I start with this explanation:

I refer to spirits, the psychic realms, energy, deceased people, spirit guides, etc. as all from the unseen realms. I described this/these unseen realms as ‘Spirit’. God, Universe, Higher Self, Collective Unconscious, Subconscious can all be subbed in for this phrase, ‘Spirit’ as well. You see, I do drop them all into one category, mostly to avoid esoteric discussion and philosophizing during a client’s session since I am on the clock, more to the point that titles and labels mean a bit less to me in the process as the information that wants to come through.

I am a channel, a vessel, a conduit for information and healing energies from Spirit. While I formally trained and practiced before opening my practice, this isn’t so much ‘what I do’ as ‘what I facilitate’ from Spirit.

We all have access to the sensitivities, information, healing. It’s a matter of fine-tuning our perceptions, confidence and knowing. For some this process is simpler than for others. A certainty is that we all have to bring a huge dose of humility and a commitment to our own healing, if we are to step into healing and helping others by bringing through Spirit.

Sometimes clients will ask me, “How do you know you are speaking to Aunt Sue/my Spirit Guide/your Guide/God?” Great question and sometimes I’m given information for the client to hear and work to identify with, in terms of who is delivering the info through me – often, more often than not, I’m not given much identifying info and am required to work on faith in where and from whom/from which energy the information is coming from.

Lastly, so many people ask what are some ways to develop their own intuitive listening and knowing skills – meditation is key! Quieting the mind so that we may clear some static and deeply listen, is a crucial step. For more info meditation check out this blog post:



Meditation is Key

As psychics we are approached by so many who are interested in cultivating and developing their psychic skills.  The number one thing, that all sources and teachers will point to initially is meditation.

Meditation is key to developing one’s psychic skills as this is the surest, most direct way to calm and quiet our minds.  Calming and quieting our minds sets us up to receive subtle whisperings and sometimes not-so-subtle whisperings from Spirit.

This ‘prescription’ of meditation isn’t meant to frustrate, quite the contrary.  If you are starting at the beginning, even five minutes a day is enough to establish a daily practice.

Establishing a daily meditation practice will serve many purposes:

·      It will ground you in calming ways

·      It will lower your stress levels

·      It has been proven to lower blood pressure

·      It will clear your mind and aid in a receptive state of mind for messages from Spirit

·      It demonstrates to the Spirit world your commitment to communicating with these unseen realms

Many people are already doing a form of meditation that they may not be crediting themselves for.  A daily walk, run or exercise regimen may be meeting these needs for you; you may be taking quiet time for yourself as you enjoy your morning routine; I’ve been known to meditate, clear my mind and set my daily intentions in the shower each day (there goes my secret!).

Most teachers will tell you that ideally you will build up to a 20 minute per day daily practice of meditation.  From this calm and clear space, psychic skills can begin to be developed.

Once this meditation practice has been cultivated, you may delight in posing questions to your quieted mind…Is taking this job a good idea?  How might I best attract a partner?  Are there better ways for me to be supporting my family members?

As you pose a question to your quieted mind, to Spirit, sit back and observe all that you may sense.

You may feel bodily sensations, emotions, hear sounds or words, or see visual answers (this is especially true for me when my eyes are closed?).  Some smell scents and experience tastes in response to their dialogue with Spirit.  Stay receptive to random feeling thoughts that cross your mind during this time.  Be open to what may come, stay calm and by all means don’t try too hard.  We all have the ability to access Spirit, our Higher Self, our Inner Guidance system.  Meditation will serve as your key to the first steps on your journey towards your Psychic Self!
