It’s been while since my last blog entry. I’ve contemplated for a while what I should write about. I don’t believe in writing just for the sake of writing. My writing has to have meaning, and just as the work I do, I believe it should have an impact. The point of this writing is about the impact of the Top Psychic Mediums.
First I’d like to say who I feel these Top Psychic Mediums are. There are a number who fit into this list, John Edward, James Van Praagh, Allison Dubois, Robert Brown, Char Margolis, George Anderson, and my personal friend and mentor, Carmen Harra. This list is in now way meant to be all-inclusive. This is just a few of the Top Psychic Mediums, and ones who have had an impact on me and my work.
Each of these Mediums have done wonderful things to bring to bring our work out into the open and bring recognition to this very legitimate field. As I’ve written in the past, not everyone doing this work is doing so for the right reasons, or using it in the way it was intended to be used. John and James were, I believe, the first to put this work in the media, doing television shows and making the rounds doing group readings and helping people connect with their loved ones who have gone onto the next dimension. Allison had a television show about her life, called Medium. Each of these mediums have written and published books. They have helped countless people connect with loved ones, and helped the society to have a better understanding of the process of making those connections. I can honestly say that until they came out in the media, I didn’t have a full understanding of what I was experiencing. Having grown up with the gift of knowing things, seeing things that others didn’t see or hear was a bit different. Really knowing that others didn’t hear things the same way I did was brought to light to me until I was in my mid-twenties. Up to that point, I thought we could all hear things the same way. I knew that we didn’t all see the same things
When John and James first started with the media and writing, I started reading everything I could get my hands on that they had written. At that point it all made sense to me. In one of John’s books he wrote about the people that helped him to understand his gifts and use it in the way that he is now using it. The first person was Lydia Clar. She was the psychic whom his mother knew and visited all the time, and worked with for a period of time. Lydia came to their home and actually did a reading for John. Her contact information was listed in his book. I contacted her and set up an appointment with her. Lydia did a phone reading for me. Lydia suggested that I should get in touch with Sheila Mattingly, who does past life regressions. Also at her suggestion, I got in touch with Irene Weinberg who is an author of book that had been channelled to her by her husband that had passed. Irene invited me to attend a workshop she was putting together with Dr. Sharon Wendt. I attended Dr. Wendt’s workshop in New Jersey.
I believe it was in John’s second book he also mentioned that he had done workshops with Sandy Anastasi. At that point I decided to research her and see if she was still doing workshops. As it happened, she was beginning a new set of workshops that weekend. My wonderful supportive husband said to that I should go. We were living in Virginia, and the workshops were in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Although it was short notice, everything fell into place, and I was able to attend the Psychic Development workshops with Sandy. For the next six months, I attended workshops to get a handle on my abilities. This was purely to be able to use these gifts in my own life, which I had already been doing, but I wanted to have a better understanding of them and be able to use them in a way that would be more helpful to me. I was enjoying my successful career as a court reporter at the time. During this weekend workshop I was introduced to Shaman Mic McManus, whom I continue to work with today. I continued to read everything I could by every single psychic author I could get my hands on, the list was endless; Robert Brown, Char Margolis, George Anderson, Echo Bodine, Carmen Harra, and others. As I read each of these books there were things in them that I could relate to and felt as though I was reading about my own life in some aspects. Especially, when I got to read the book by Allison Dubois. With Allison’s connection to the law and court system, this was all very close to home for me.
I continued to practice my court reporting and was even looking at getting a position within a court system, one where I could go to one place everyday. With my experience and the fact that they had previously paid me as a contractor to come in and train their reporters on a new system, I believed I was a shoe-in for the job. Only, I wasn’t a shoe-in, they didn’t hire me. So, I called Carmen and set up a reading with her. Carmen said to me, I don’t know if you realize this, but you are supposed to do readings full-time, like I do. Carmen knew nothing about me, so she wouldn’t have known that I had done workshops to be able to control my gifts. But in taking those workshops, I would never have thought I would end up doing readings full-time, as I was perfectly happy doing my court reporting, which I had been doing at the time for about 18 years. After Carmen said that to me, I told her, I have no idea how to even begin doing this professionally. She advised me to get a website, and she introduced me to Scott Cluthe, who at the time had a radio show. When I talked to Scott, I ended up doing an impromptu reading for him, in which is wife came through, she had passed from cancer. That was the beginning of me being on radio shows with Scott through the years. Scott has been on Sirius radio, Healthy Life, Blog Talk Radio, just to name a few. I’ve been on each of these networks with Scott.
Two years of doing court reporting and readings, and then it was time to give up the reporting altogether, and do, as Carmen had said, full-time readings. Over the years of doing this, I’ve talked with and met quite a few people. Many of which have told me about the impact that I’ve had on their lives, and I tell them, I merely deliver the messages, what you do with them is your responsibility.
Recently a client that I did a reading for had an opportunity to get an in person private reading with James Van Praagh. When he went to the private reading, he said that James told him a lot of the same things that I had told him in our session. He mentioned me to James, we’ve never met. James, of course, didn’t know who I am. My client sent me an email telling about his session with James and that he was a going to attend a workshop with James in New York. After a great deal of through and meditation, I decided that I too would attend the workshop. I got to meet James, and thank him for the work he has done and continues to in this field.
What makes these people the Top Psychic Mediums? Well, for one the attention they have brought to the work. They have impacted so many people, some of which they have met, others they have not. As you can see from my telling of their impact on me. Reading a couple of books, I’ve ended up meeting a number of people that have helped along the path of bringing me to where I am today in doing full-time psychic and psychic medium readings myself. This is not something I would have thought I would be doing with my life, for sure. It’s through the impact that we have on others, sometimes we know and sometimes we don’t know. but our impact can be far reaching. And because of that, I would like to say, thank you John Edward, James Van Praagh, Allison Dubois, Robert Brown, George Anderson, and especially, Carmen Harra. For those I have met, it’s a pleasure to count you as my friends and colleagues. For those I have not met, I feel very blessed for your contributions to my life, without you even knowing me or meeting me, you have helped me and many others by the work you are doing. Keep it up and I send you Universal Love and Light.
