The Best About People. It can be a difficult task at times. I get it. You get a vibe from someone and you gotta trust it. However, do we really know what happened with that person in that instance when we felt that vibe? No, no we don’t.
Backstory: I’ve been trained as reporter and to assume something is a dirty word – two sources or more please.
As a medium, it’s a whole different story. When a client calls to make an appointment, I assume that they are because they either saw me on Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp’s website, heard about me from a friend or saw me on social media. Occasionally, I put my name on the whiteboard in the Welcome Center/Bookstore.
Before booking the appointment, I always ask if they have had a reading previously and then I tell them what to expect, every time. ‘I connect with Spirit around you, give evidence of that Spirit, life guidance and psychic information. I am a Clairvoyant, I see, feel, know and hear. Most times people would like to connect with certain people (on the higher side of life). It’s not how it works for me. It’s just who is around during the reading.’
I have been doing readings for six years in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. I do know when clients want to hear from someone in particular. It doesn’t always happen. I ask them to remain open to the information given. Sometimes, the client thinks we’re having a friendly conversation and then I remind them that Spirit is showing me symbols, I am feeling information and just know. I interpret that information into a reading. At times, I channel – the words just flow.
Sometimes, the client and I must figure out certain information together. I learn something new every time I do a reading. Other times they aren’t quite sure, and I let them know that information may unfold later. Perhaps, they are not ready to hear what is being said.
Am I always, correct? No. And sometimes, I do not have a connection with the client. By five minutes into the reading, I will know. If I am not, I will say so. It happens. I will not continue to do the reading and will surely not charge anyone for that. I usually assist in finding another medium. It’s the right thing to do.
When the reading is over, I always say that ‘I hope the reading was helpful.’ I have never had anyone say that it was not. Trust me, I would know if it wasn’t.
What really gets me is when I hear something negative about a client’s experience with me. How can people look you in the eye and say the reading was awesome, or great, or just what they needed, and then turn around and write something that was not talked about before leaving my office?
What can I really do? Write this blog and send love and light. Done!
Blessings of Peace and Love!
