How to prepare for a psychic reading?

don't say too much, have a plan, keep an open mind, but don't let your brains fall out!

Episode Released: 6 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Always stick to yes or no answers. Resist the urge to say too much when prompted. If a psychic (or especially a medium) is asking for too much feedback from you, this is a bad sign and don't take the bait. Try to write down a short script of the most important questions you have before you get on the call. If you're connecting with a loved one in spirit, ask them for support before the session begins. (sometimes asking for a sign is a good idea, as it can be very empowering when it's validated by the medium)

What is the best way to become psychic?

developing your psychic abilities through expanded awareness meditation practices.

Episode Released: 10 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

The best way to hone, refine and develop your own psychic abilities is thorugh a process called "expanded awareness" meditation we call "sense sinking" There is a short guided practice below that will walk you through the process if you're interested, but it works wonderfully well for psychics, mediums, empaths and spiritual seekers of all ages.

What is a Mental Medium?

understanding the key differences in types of mediums

Episode Released: 6 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Mental mediums are those that purport to communicate with the dead via the mind alone. Mental mediums are BY FAR the most common, and while they remain controversial, they are nowhere near as controversial as physical mediums like Nicole De Haas. (Featured on Surviving Death, and to our eye…..didn’t do herself, or the idea of physical mediumship any favors)

What is a Physical Medium?

psychical mediums are MUCH different than mental mediums

Episode Released: 10 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Physical mediums generally are those that you’ll see featured in Seances. They often claim (and witnesses report) physical phenomena that manifests during their sessions, which is incredibly evidential for those in attendance…and incredibly hard to believe for anyone who hasn’t experienced it in person.

What percentage of psychic readings are accurate?

the common misconceptions about accurate psychic readings

Episode Released: 6 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

If a psychic or medium tells you he or she is X percent accurate, it's usually a good idea to head the other way. Why? Because psychics aren't statisticians. Unless a psychic or medium has been studied in a lab (there have been some who have....but very, very few) the chances are, they are making up a number that's not been checked.

Do I have a soulmate?

What psychic mediums say about guardian angels, soul mates and twin flames

Episode Released: 10 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Some of the best evidence for soul mates, guardian angels and spirit guides comes from memories of past lives, reincarnation research and even past life regression thererapy. People seem to "return" with the same soul groups, or soul families....often reversing roles in the service of learning important spiritual lessons.

How do psychics predict the future?

understanding how psychic future predictions work

Episode Released: 6 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

There are lots of different ways that psychics can get impressions of the future. Some are from you. Others are from an information field that lies beyond, or transcends local consciousness. (often called the "Akashic records" or even collective consciousness) Many psychics are simply really empathetic, and are able to not only feel your energy from the inside, but are able to glean information abour your life, by feeling the future.

Can psychic abiliites be developed?

Or do you need to be born "special" to be psychic later in life?

Episode Released: 10 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

There is much confusion about this in the "spiritual" community. While many traits (like being unusually empathetic) are actually personality traits that we are "born" with, they can be cultivated, and developed with practice. (there are actually parts of the brain that can be "trained" to be more compassionate, a practice called "Metta" in Sanskrit, or loving kindness practice) The same is true with psychic abilites. While there are people who are born to be more intuitive, there are also many highly respected psychics who have developed their gift through practice.

Are psychic readings by telephone accurate?

the common misconceptions about accurate psychic readings

Episode Released: 6 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Believe it or not, psychic readings by phone are actually much harder, and are actually the basis for much of the scientific research into psychic abilities. In person readings, while they are often thought of as preferable, are much more likely to be influenced by factors like age, dress, body language, facial expressions and micro movements. These are not a factor in phone readings, and lessen the chance for cheating, or unintentional information leakage between you, and the reader.

Do mediums use Tarot Cards?

Are tarot cards legimate? Do real mediums use tarot for communicating with spirit?

Episode Released: 10 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Generally, not. A medium may use something like automatic writing (something that Tyler Henry often does in his TV show, for example) or psychometry (holding the object of either your loved one in spirit, or something that holds personal signficance to you) but most mediums don't use symbolic tools like the Tarot to do readings. (but a psychic may certainly use them to help in a life reading)

Are Free Psychic Readings Legitimate?

What can I expect from a free psychic reading?

Episode Released: 6 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

While you can certainly get a free psychic reading in the right circumstances, the majority of "free" readings that you'll see online are simply designed to be a brief introduction to a paid session. Remember, like any other professional service (lawyer, mechanic or otherwise) a good psychic deserves to get paid for his or her work. Free readings that are legimate are generally short, and you should expect to pay for a longer, more detailed session.

Will a Psychic Tell Me Bad News?

not all psychics have the same bedside manner

Episode Released: 10 Feb 2021

Episode Brief

Not all psychics have the same approach to bad news. Some are protective of the feelings and psychological well being of their clients, and others will simply "blurt" whatever they hear, see or feel if they feel it's accurate. We generally don't prefer (or recommend) psychics who claim to work without a filter, as if they're wrong (as they often are) people can be adversely affected by information that's not delivered with compassion or care.

An empath is someone who feels the experiences of others, from the inside out.

Episode Released: 15 March 2021

Episode Brief

An ADC is the acronym for an after death communication experience. There are many different types of ADC's. The most common? Dream visitation experiences. These are very common within the first 30 days after a loved one has passed. They can be incredibly vivid, "more real than real life" and often are incredibly helpful, hopeful and healing. ADC's can happen years, or even decades after the loss of a loved one. (meaning....if you're reading this and wondering why you haven't had one, don't fret, or sweat it, it could happen tonight!)
