Live platform mediumship vs. 1:1 reading

Greetings, seekers! And if you came to my first real demonstration on Zoom this week, I want to say thank you for trusting me. Reading for your loved ones is a privilege I do not take lightly. If you couldn’t make it, I plan to offer another one in the future.

I am about a year and a half into my mediumship development, but it kinda feels like I’ve always done this. At this point, I’ve given over 175+ professional readings, 95% of them in the 1:1 setting. As a double Scorpio (and as a generally intense person), I gravitate toward offering 1:1 services because there is so much room for depth, quality, and the unveiling of a unique-to-you spiritual experience.

Giving my first platform demonstration was kind of the opposite. The way it works is I connect with the other side and receive a description of who the Spirit people were on Earth, how they may have passed, what their family is like, etc. I bring this information forward and give a five-minute reading, which can be claimed by any member of the audience.

What I have come to understand is that the Spirit person who steps forward may be more of a spokesperson for all the other people who share a similar energetic frequency. It’s called “piggybacking”.

For instance, I was translating communication from a young, religious girl who passed tragically in a car accident, by no fault of her own, after making her decision to pursue a college education. Three people could recognize the essence of the girl, but my intuition drew me toward one of the three people, and the reading became more evidential and specific from there (shout out to Carol!). But for a few moments, all three people were able to feel the essence of their loved ones in that one reading — even if they couldn’t take all the information I was channeling. 

This is cool because it gives the opportunity for multiple people to heal a little piece of their soul simultaneously. While 1:1 readings offer much greater depth (we have a whole 40 minutes to work together), platform offers community healing. And I’m happy to explore this modality and continue to further develop my mediumship within it.

Thanks again for allowing me to translate Spirit communication for you. To me, this is the coolest job ever.

Artwork from LOCATE YOUR INTUITION, cohort #1

ALAS!  The artwork of five amazing artists who participated in the first-ever LOCATE YOUR INTUITION workshop, my six-week, tailored-to-you online course that guides you in discovering and developing your own intuitive gifts. This cohort was special; not only because it was the first one ever, but because everyone who signed up had an expressed interest and talent in art. Here are some examples of the art they unearthed within themselves (there were no art assignments, just pure creative drive).

I am so grateful to all these women who put their trust in me and, more importantly, the trust in themselves. Yall rule and ILY! If you want to join the next cohort and unearth your gifts (artistic or OTHERWISE!), sign up today.

ATHENA BY ALI SULLIVAN ; “This is Athena, because I felt intuitively called to paint her, and I didn’t question why, and when I looked up her symbolism after creating her, I realized her energy is one of my guides. I resonated with her energy of being an artisan while also being a fierce warrior, and child-free, yet a mother to her community.” FIND MORE OF ALI’S WORK HERE.

BY EMILY BEIN: This was a hard one to pick for me - since I have been processing almost everything through my art! This one in particular stood out though - as I remember it being a breakthrough moment for me. I drew this in a meditative state during the beginning of the course when I was just starting to become more vulnerable. The colors, face, and movement within the work definitely reflects my spiritual nature. A few days later I realized that it connected perfectly to a painting I made several years ago that was also a breakthrough moment for me at the time. It was then that I realized the correlation between the two pieces of art and how I have grown as an artist/person. The painting I did several years ago was how I viewed my anxiety and how it overtook my life. Using the same colors, style, and movement in the art I made during this course with more detail shows how I have overcome my anxiety which in return helped me unlock a whole new part of me I never knew could exist.” FIND MORE OF EMILY’S WORK HERE.

“I made this immediately after our class today and it’s possibly one of the most accurate self-portraits I’ve ever made. Thanks for an incredible class!”

“This is the first artwork I have made “just because” in probably 10 years. I made it quickly and without expectation. I made it soon after our first meeting where we went over goals for the course and felt compelled to draw it for some reason. Seeing your shirt with “trust your gut” on it during our last lecture, gave me chills and made me realize that I actually made this artwork for a reason after all: it was a reminder to myself and to my future self that trusting your gut actually leads you to exactly where you need to be.” Find Rachel’s commissioned work here. 

Join cohort #2 right here on my website. I can’t wait! Class starts April 11.

Skeptical about mediumship? I get it.

Hello friends! As a psychic medium, I perceive spirit communication from the other side. What happens during a reading is that I start to see things, hear things, and feel things and reporting those findings to my clients in real time. While these findings rarely make any sense to me, they often make sense to the sitter thereby making them feel connected to their loved ones in spirit.

It’s super normal to hear me describe mediumship and become skeptical. Skepticism is healthy. With me, respectful skepticism is welcome. I experience my own my skeptical moments.

Last week I gave a reading to a woman named Hollie and I connected her with her son Anthony, who died tragically at 20. The reading went really well and I was able to provide “ungoogle-able” evidence, i.e. things I couldn’t logically know about her son and their relationship. You’ll see one example of it in this video.

While we were debriefing at the end of the session, her boyfriend came onto the screen and wanted to express some of his respectful skepticism regarding the psychic industry. I include part of our conversation here because it’s a pretty common one:

I love conversations like that because it gets me to really reflect and refine my beliefs about my own mediumship practice. 

Here are my personal beliefs regarding mediumship, based on my personal experiences:

  • No one knows precisely what happens when you die, and anyone who says they know is spinning a tale.
  • I have no desire to convert any one into believing in mediumship. Take it or leave it, my friends.
  • I believe things exist beyond the material plane, beyond what we can see and touch. I regularly tap into this space (oft called ‘the other side’) and that’s where I find the “ungoogle-able” information about people.
  • We are all intricately connected to one another and to other living beings.
  • Mediumship can be an incredibly healing experience for those suffering from grief.
  • I believe everyone has an intuition, and that what makes me talented at this work is my intense interest, discipline, and devotion to developing the skillset. In other words, \ though some people are born with a more maturely developed intuition, anyone can develop one, anyone can do what I do,

  • I hope this video makes clear where I stand as a medium. I am not interested in convincing anyone of anything, I just love talking about what I do and how I’ve seen it help people heal from grief or alter their view of the world.
