What is psychic amnesia?

psychic amnesiaEvery now and then during a mediumship reading, a client will draw a complete blank.

That’s psychic amnesia.

I might ask, “Do you know a Loretta?” after being given this name.

The client will insist they have never heard of a “Loretta.”

Later in the reading, a light bulb will go off and they’ll say, “Oh my god, Loretta was my grandmother’s sister!”

Or, they might contact me the day after the reading to say they found out that they did have a relative by this name.

Why do people get psychic amnesia?
Sometimes it’s due to the sheer volume of information coming through from Spirit. It can be quite overwhelming and cause a short term memory lapse.

Other times it’s due to being given information that you aren’t completely familiar with because it might have been before your time. You might have to go home and speak to your own parents or grandparents to verify the information.

You may get a reading and have a number of your spouse’s relatives show up with whom you’re only vaguely familiar. The names that come through can really throw you as you rack your brain to try to remember who they are. Sometimes, the more you try the more blocked you become. You may have to ask your spouse or in-laws to verify the information.

Spirit is intelligent
When we get information from those who have passed on they can give us lots of detail about their lives. They can start naming relatives that you may have either forgotten or just weren’t aware of too. They may also show or tell you about how they died, their pets, hobbies, clubs and organizations they belonged to, awards they won, homes and places they’ve lived and jobs they’ve held which you may also not be familiar with.

Dealing with details
The best thing to do is write everything down. When you get home contact other relatives who may be able to give you more detail about the names you were given.

Spirits don’t give out random information. If they’re giving you something it’s because they know with a bit of digging you’ll be able to verify it. Some of them can get pretty stubborn too. They’ll keep showing you  the same thing over and over or handing you the same name until the client “gets it” or promises to look into it when they get home.

For example, once I was giving a reading to a friend. Her grandmother showed up. She didn’t know this grandmother too well because she’d died when my friend was only five years old. The grandmother showed me a needle and thread and a scene of some sort of factory. The grandmother was telling me that she had worked at a sewing factory. My friend, however, insisted that her grandmother never worked outside the home. The next day she called to tell me that her mother had verified that her grandmother had worked at an embroidery factory.

What you should know

Spirits retain their basic personalities whey they die. Don’t expect someone who was shy and not a talker to be any different in a reading. Also, if the person was not someone who gave good advice when they were living that’s probably not going to change now that they’ve passed on. For example, if you had a relative or friend who passed away who always gave you great advice that’s still going to be the same.

How to avoid psychic amnesia

Send out thoughts to the relatives you want to hear from. Tell them you’re having a reading and ask them to show up. They usually will. If they were the shy type tell them to be sure and speak up too! Sometimes other friends and relatives with stronger personalities will come through before they do or it might appear that they didn’t show up because they aren’t as forceful in making their presence known.

Review the names of your relatives before the reading. Or, take it a step further and prepare a family tree list so that you’ll be familiar with all the names.

Make sure you’re prepared before your mediumship reading so you don’t come down with psychic amnesia.

Have you ever had a mediumship reading? Did you get psychic amnesia? Were you able to later verify the information?
