Preparing for Your Session

It’s fair to say that most people don’t believe that there’s any necessary preparation when it comes to going in for a psychic or medium reading. I disagree. To be educated is to be aware, so it is my intention to give you the information you need before you have a session with me. 

First of all, it’s important to know a couple of things: 

1. There is a difference between a psychic reading and a mediumship reading. 

2. I have no control over who in Spirit will show up during your session. 

Let’s back up a bit: there is a difference between psychics and mediums. All mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums. Let me explain. A psychic reads energy, specifically YOUR energy, and connects with your Higher Self. For example, if you go to see a psychic for advice on how to deal with a cheating spouse, the psychic will pick up on that in your energy. A psychic DOES NOT connect with anyone on the Other Side in order to give information and/or messages. Their reading is entirely based on your energy. 

A medium can also read your energy, but our information comes directly from those on the Other Side. This is why mediums can read over the phone and via the internet. All we need is to connect with your loved ones to receive information. If you go to a medium, expect to connect with your loved ones and those on the Other Side. 

This brings me back to point number two: the medium has control over how they work with Spirit during the session. The only thing that they cannot control is who in Spirit shows up. You may want to speak with Dad, but Grandma shows up because she’s the best soul to deliver the information you need to hear right now. 

There are times when you may want to communicate with someone who has recently passed away. Some mediums will tell you that you have to give your loved ones at least 3 months in order to acclimate to being back on the Other Side. I don’t disagree that it takes them time to get used to being over there, but since time doesn’t exist on the Other Side, Spirit has control over when (or if) they show up. Our souls never stop growing and learning and so there are some who are ready to communicate with us immediately, and others that may take years (in our Earthly awareness of time). Don’t fret. Your beloved ones are only a thought away. 

What You Should Do Before, During and After a Session. 


Make sure to wear comfortable clothes. 

Please do not consume intoxicants in any way. This will hinder (not help) your session. 

Ask (either verbally or in your mind) your loved ones on the Other Side to come to your session. They already know who’ll be there and coming through, but it’s nice to invite everyone to show up.

Come with an open mind. 


Regardless what kind of session you have, it is important not to provide any information other than your name. 

Sometimes psychics will ask if there are any specific questions you want to ask. Don’t ask them up front because it gives too much information. Ask your question towards the end. 

Often mediums will give you time to ask questions of your loved ones during the session. Keep in mind, it isn’t a requirement to ask these questions out loud. Spirit can hear you and they already know what it is you want to ask, anyway. In other words, it’s not your job to give information just receive. 

Record your session, even if you’re just taking notes. 

Be open to all information received. Sometimes it may not make sense in the moment. 


Drink at least 8oz of water right after, regardless of what kind of session you had. You’ll also want to keep hydrated for at least 24 hours after. 

Relax and be gentle with yourself. 

Keep in mind that Spiritual Coaching sessions work pretty much the same. You will want to prepare yourself. The only difference is that during the coaching session, you may ask more questions and there will be a dialogue between us.
