We take things we cannot see for granted every day. For example, the air we breathe is invisible, yet we do not doubt its existence. And yet, there are many concepts that people don’t believe until they can be ‘proved’. This comes up often in my readings as a Psychic Medium. A new client will come for a reading, and promptly tell me at the beginning that they don’t believe in the afterlife. It doesn’t take long, however, when one of their loved ones who have passed comes forward with loving messages, for the client to profoundly and deeply change his or her mind.
In my book ‘Life Eternal Love Immortal’ I wrote about a woman who announced that she was agnostic and an atheist—until her mother showed up and talked about ‘the skirt’. This was a sacred skirt that the mother wore and danced in annually at a traditional Native ceremony with her husband. After her mother died the daughter kept up the dance ritual until the skirt was worn. At the end of the reading she said with tears: “I believe you. Never in my life would I have thought that I would actually buy into what a medium does, but the skirt was the solid proof I guess I’ve been waiting for.” At the end of our time together she held me tight, giving me one of the biggest hugs I’ve ever had.
Loved ones who have passed don’t just ‘show up’ in my readings. They come laden with loving and supportive messages that comfort and console their beloved. Watching a skeptic soften and become a believer in the afterlife is affirming and satisfying as a psychic, but also as an individual who knows there is more beyond what I can see on this physical plane. While people grieve losing a loved one, there is solace in knowing that although they are no longer in human form, they remain close in spirit, always.
Tapping into someone’s relationship with a departed soul, whether it was a mother, father, sister or friend, is sacred work. I hold the space as a sacred conduit between the living and those who have died. I bring them together, sometimes for the first time since crossing over. It is often the case when I re-introduce a loved ones who has passed, that a client will begin to dream about him or her, and actually feel their presence, as if they are in the same room. So, in a way, I am reintroducing them to the loved ones they lost.
Becoming a psychic medium is not something one goes to school for, or declares they want to become when they grow up. Seeing people who have passed is a sacred gift that I have been given, and I am forever grateful that I am able to reconnect loved ones again. In a reading deep feelings of love, and unfinished business like forgiveness and understanding will surface. Often tears are shed. And at the end of a reading I feel both a connection with the living and the departed. To have confirmation that love is everlasting and that when a loved one dies they are not ‘gone’ brings additional elements into the readings: Faith and Trust. Just because we cannot see something, does not mean it is not real. Your loved ones are always dedicated to loving and protecting you. Reach out to your dearly beloved departed, and if you need help, I am a phone call away.
Always Love, Sharon
