Lemonade And Other Things To Be Grateful For.

April 26, 2010

Recent events have  me pondering the concept of turning life’s lemons into lemonade.  As a psychic medium I provide readings to clients either individually, in group/party events or by telephone.  I love helping to make a difference in people’s lives, giving  peace and closure gained by communication with their deceased relatives… evidence that loved ones have not left them, they are never truly alone. Messages guide folks along their path with suggestions and encouragement and most that I see are gracious with their gratitude. I give a lot of myself when channelling in this way and I’m more than happy to do it. Sometimes though, I’m not given the respect that my time and efforts deserve. Thankfully, these occurences are rare. A woman came to me interested in what I do but unsure if she was ready for a reading.  Just prior, while seeing a lovely young lady, I was given the names of two spirits. Since they were unfamiliar to her, I knew they belonged to another of the guests waiting to see me. This happens, where a deceased person is so anxious to speak with their relative, that they jump in on someone else’s reading. I had the feeling the spirits belonged with the woman who was unsure about having a session, so I spoke with her and asked  about the two names. She did know them and excitedly said she would now like a reading. I told her my fee (she hadn’t been on my list of appointments) and proceeded to bring through no less than five relatives with significant messages. In fact, there were so many that wanted to speak, I ended up going way over the allotted time and it was a fantastic reading. I do that sometimes, feeling generosity is a positive energy that comes back to us magnified. Well as they say, no good deed goes unpunished! Because of the extra time given, another client couldn’t  see me, she had to drive a friend home from the event. And I discovered later, when being paid by the organizer, that the woman I’d given the stunning 5-spirit session to… had stiffed me, she hadn’t paid for her appointment! I was rather stunned, not to mention disappointed that someone would do that. If money was a problem I would have discounted my rate to help her.

Another lemon tossed my way left a sour taste in my mouth:  A reading I did for a skeptic that my guides and gut instinct had told me would not go well. As always, they were right. Prior to our appointment this sitter told me a story of meeting two well-known mediums who she was sure were nothing but fakes with a fancy TV show… THAT should have set off my warning bells but instead, I forged ahead. People with negativity produce blocked energy that makes reading them and their spirits  difficult, if not impossible. I did my best, but the messages were just not coming through clearly. Of course she wasted no time poking holes in my ability also. I stopped the reading, accepting no payment. Then a lovely blessing turned my lemons of the day into lemonade: my deceased mom sent a sign after my last reading of the day, which went extremely well, all things considered. As I was packing up to leave, a strong, clear smell of roses suddenly wafted around me… my mom’s favourite flower. There had been no scent in the room prior to this. She wanted to send me a little support and love. Thanks mom.

Today, on my walk along a tree-lined path there was a further reminder about gratitude… a man rode by me with his dog; not on a bike, but in a wheelchair-type scooter, faithful companion running alongside. Many folks on this route fail to scoop after their pets, but this gentleman, wheelchair and all, managed to clean up after his pooch.  I felt grateful as we passed each other that I have two healthy legs to carry me through life, a career I love, and my mom who still sends her love when I’m having a bad day. Remember dear readers, when life tosses you lemons… well, you know the rest. For some advice of the physical realm kind (non-spiritual, that is!) check out the School of Life, Canada’s Advice Columnist contest that I’ve entered at www.canoe.ca/advice  It would be a dream of mine to win, as well as allowing me to reach out to more of you. Wish me luck!

Being A Psychic… It Ain’t Always Easy.

March 23, 2010

Today’s post will take a slightly different direction… being a psychic-medium ain’t always easy. Grammatical gurus please excuse my wording. It seems correct to say, like a throw-back to how cowboys talked in old western movies. Because some days I feel like the cowboy (or cowgirl) who just got thrown from the horse. I get back up of course, though a little bruised and worse for wear. Don’t get me wrong; I love what I do and I’m not complaining because every job has it’s downfalls and less than perfect days. It’s just that having a job where people either expect that you know everything, (like going into a store, chatting with the cashier and having a customer who overhears our conversation, asking me what “sign” he is and what is he currently thinking. By the way, I did get his correct astrological sign!) or  poking holes in the messages given from deceased loved ones, can be hard sometimes. I am a psychic-medium and healer, but I’m also human with feelings that can be hurt and I don’t know everything, far from it. I do what I do to help people, to provide peace and closure, to guide them on their path and hopefully uplift them in some small way. And I’m grateful and humbled by the fact that on almost all occassions, I am able to do just that. But there are those days…

I recently gave a psychic group reading event at the home of a spunky, terrific woman. The party provided many memorable, fantastic readings and moments. As at almost every event though, there’s one person who’s a skeptic, determined to “test” me at each turn, unwilling to confirm when the information given to me by their spirit loved ones is correct. I’m cool with people having a healthy skepticism and remain confident in the messages I’m delivering (confidence and belief has to come with the territory in order to communicate with the other side). What people often don’t understand is that negative thoughts act as an energy barrier, making it much more difficult for me to read their energy and that of the spirits around them. I’m providing readings for their benefit to allow those on the other side to express love and guidance. So refusing to coroborate key details only slows the process and diminishes the benefit of the reading for the client. Please be willing to confirm, you’ll reap so many more benefits. Then there are those folks who outright lie about the accuracy of the information I give to them. The messages are often very impactful and emotional and I get that. One such incident occurred this night as a deceased father gave me a message six ways from Sunday for his daughter, who simply sat there, arms crossed, refusing to be moved. Her father didn’t give up and neither did I! She eventually let her guard down and admitted just how many details I had in fact, gotten right. She even took me aside later to thank me and apologize, saying my level of accuracy shocked her, so she had lied to cover that. I appreciated her honesty and accepted her apology. Sometimes even my friends are wary of me, knowing I can read their energy, often their thoughts and worried I may see some embarrasing aspect of their lives. Occupational hazard!! Seriously though, while I do know when people are lying or covering up and can read exactly what’s going on with them, how they are feeling, regardless of what they tell me to the contrary, I do respect boundaries with my friends and loved ones. I mostly “turn off” my ability with them so we can be normal and comfortable with each other. That’s often why I don’t conduct readings with those close to me, although if I see something such as a warning or help I can provide, I always do so. This gift comes with great responsibility, a fact I am always keenly aware of.

Back to my psychic party… I was pleased to be able to give a warning to a pretty young woman, which came to me in great detail in a dream two nights before I met her. I was also given a wonderful compliment by someone who attended a previous group session with me and wanted to convey what a strongly positive white light energy she felt and saw around me that night. She told me the evening was unlike any she’d ever experienced and one that she would never forget. She didn’t at first know that I was the psychic she had come to see, until I delivered my pre-reading’s inspirational seminar. She told me of being  astounded that I was the same person with “the energy” she had felt even before entering the house. Bless her for telling me that. Because that is the reason I am following my path as a psychic-medium. It ain’t always easy, but I truly do feel lucky and blessed to have this career.

Unbelievable Uxbridge Update.

March 9, 2010

Uxbridge… I’m lovin’ it!! I spent another great weekend giving psychic-mediumship readings to a group of terrific women. There was one token male there… the hostess’ husband, who kindly lent his house for the event and even graciously thanked me afterwards for “making his wife happy”. What a lovely thing to say, I thought, a double-edged compliment. Me on one side, his charming wife on the other.

What I particularly liked about this day/evening party were the two skeptics, who left as believers. I’m fine with folks having a healthy skepticism and I rather enjoy their surprise as I deliver undeniably accurate information. They were both very good sports about it, one flying down the stairs after her reading excitedly asking to use the phone to call a living relative to discuss all the deceased relatives I’d brought through for her. The other, who at first wouldn’t give me an inch in confirming the accuracy of my information, ended up laughingly telling the hostess all the times I’d hit the bullseye… into the wee hours of the morning! I even got correct the exact dessert she had planned to bring to the party, but then didn’t. Sometimes the spirits who give me my info. do have a sense of humour! Lions and tigers and skeptics, oh my!

Other memorable moments were the two spirits who travelled up in my car with me, giving me their exact names as well as that of a third, living person. During the inspirational seminar I give to start off the party, I discovered that all three people, living and dead, belonged to one woman. When I gave her the names I’d been given during my drive, I thought she’d fall right out of her chair with surprise. Hey… I aim to please!

The psychic all-day party became a weekend in Uxbridge thanks again to my dear friends who open their home to me whenever I’m up that way. They feed me too, and rather well I must say. Thanks you two! A lovely brunch the next day with mutual friends completed the weekend. A special thank you also goes out to my funny, sweet, though dangerous party hostess. Why dangerous you ask? She has a black belt, she can kick my a _ _!  Seriously though, a truly fun time was had by all, myself included.

Thanks Uxbridge, you’re blossoming into my home away from home.
