Pet Communication: What is Your Pet Thinking? (Plus a Giveaway!)

Pet Communication: What is Your Pet Thinking? (Plus a Giveaway!)

Want to know what your pet is thinking? You may need a pet psychic. Do you know what your pet is thinking?

Animals are pure souls of unconditional love. Anatole France once said, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” I truly believe that to be true.

So, today I’m please to share an interview with a true lover of animals, pet psychic and medium Jeanne Miller. Jeanne has written several books about her experiences as a pet communicator. Her newest book is, “Pet Chatter” and she is here to tell us about it plus give away a digital copy to one lucky reader who leaves a comment!

 1. What made you want to become a pet medium and pet communicator?

 I’ve always loved animals and wanted to work with them. Because I can’t bear to see them in pain, the veterinary field wasn’t a good option for me. 

When I first saw The Pet Psychic show on Animal Planet, it struck me like a lightning bolt. Previous to that, I had no idea communication with animals was even possible.  At the time, I was in general psychic development, and it became clear to me that this was what I had been yearning for. 

 2. Aside from pet communication do you also read people?

 My original intention of entering into the psychic field was to work with people. It became clear over time though, that I was being drawn very strongly to the animals.  But I’ve found that in talking with people’s pets, I’m actually working with both the pet and their humans. So I have the best of both worlds.

 3. Your first book on this topic, “The Pet Psychic Diaries” was wonderful and I enjoyed it very much. What prompted you to write “Pet Chatter?”

Thank you so much. I’m so happy that you enjoyed it.  I’ve received many wonderful emails from people who have enjoyed my other book, “The Pet Psychic Diaries.” 

I noticed that the parts of the book they spoke of most often were the quotes from the animals. Because of this, I thought the readers might enjoy having a book of all animal quotes.  

I culled these from the email readings I’ve done over the last few years. Each chapter is about a different subject, some funny, some sad, some loving and spiritual. It was so much fun to write and I hope people enjoy hearing from these special babies.

 4. Is there one comment you hear most often from animals? And, what’s the funniest thing, most surprising or unusual thing you ever heard a pet say during a pet communication session?

 There are a few things that come up a lot. Many dogs speak with pride of their “job” of being the protectors of their family. Cats get very specific about what they want and don’t want in a toy. Surprisingly, many don’t want catnip on all of their toys. Horses talk about training issues. Birds often talk about not being understood and not understanding us.

The pets constantly surprise me with some of the comments they come out with. The one that really threw me for a loop was the dog who misunderstood what was happening when men came to mow the grass. 

He showed me a picture of them putting the mown grass into bags and loading it onto their truck.  He was so angry when he told me, “They are stealing our yard!”  That earned him a place in the chapter called, “Lost in Translation.”

5. What do pets want from their humans or want us to know? 

They mostly want the same things we want: To be loved, to be listened to, and to be respected.  What they generally would like us to know is how grateful they are when we allow them to be themselves and not take all the “wildness” out of them. 

Dogs love it when we let them sniff what they want. Cats love it when we let them jump up on furniture and tables.  But even if we don’t, they will find a way. As one cat recently told me, “I’m up on things a lot more than they know about.” 

6. What one or two things can pet owners do to try to communicate with their pets?

I always recommend spending quiet time with them. No TV, radio, phone off. Lean back, close your eyes and picture them in your head. Then talk to them.  They are amazing at reading our thoughts and I think people are in constant communication with their pets without really knowing it. 

Also, speak to them verbally.  They do understand most of what we say, so we must always remember to choose our words carefully. An overweight kitty I spoke to, had taken to hiding under tables when company came so she wouldn’t have to hear about how fat she was anymore.

7. Any last words? 

Before we part, I would like to thank my pet clients and readers for making my work so enjoyable. I would also like to let them know that  I’m currently working on “Pet Psychic Diaries Two” and hope to have it out by late summer, early fall. 

Thank you Angela. I enjoyed visiting with you today.  If anyone wants to reach me, I have a contact form on my site:

5 Encounters with Spirits: PbI Readers Share Their Stories

“While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.” –John Taylor

Portrait of Empress Elizabeth Alexeievna of Russia in Mourning
Today I am pleased to share 5 stories of encounters with the spirit of a loved one from Powered by Intuition readers.
Nothing touches us more than losing someone we love especially when it is a parent or grandparent. The grief can be unbearable.
The painful loss leaves a hole in our soul that cannot be filled. But sometimes we are lucky enough to be “visited” by the one we miss and this changes everything.
Suddenly upon being visited we are “healed” of our intense grief. We continue to miss them but we instantly feel so much better.
While they are not back for good we know that they aren’t gone forever either and that they continue to exist, and this gives us great hope and healing.
It was a foggy Wednesday morning around  2 am when I awoke from a deep sleep to see the most beautiful image of a woman at the end of my bed. She wore a long sleeved white gown  with a square neckline her dark wavy hair fell to her shoulders.
She looked down at my daughter lying next to me sleeping, her pale face  glowed  with a most beautiful and serene smile. I knew at once it was my mum. She had said she would come back to one of us when she passed. I’m so pleased she chose me.
She left as quick as she came leaving the room smothered in a loving energy.
–Annette Bullivant



Since I was very young, I could sense spiritual presences.  The fact that our family moved several times during my childhood and that every house we lived in had at one time someone who passed away in it provided a lot of interesting little experiences, both good and bad. I’ve heard them talk, felt them tap my shoulder, and seen them carry things around the house in mischief.

My beloved father passed away just over 5 years ago.  Shortly after the day he passed, I saw faint images of him wherever I went.  I told a few family members, but they dismissed it as my imagination and grief.  But it didn’t feel like that at all.  And wherever I saw him, it was fleeting, and he was smiling–clearly, he was happy in the state he was now in, and despite being heartbroken, I accepted that.  I wanted him to know absolute happiness.  If anyone deserved it, he did.  After his burial, I didn’t see him anymore.
Although I wasn’t able to fully grieve his passing as I feel I needed to–I had young children to care for–I was still very down for a few years.  I ached to see him, to talk to him, to in some way know the essence of him was still around somehow.  As much as I wanted that, I think, in hindsight, I was simply too down to sense it.  It was not until two years ago when something sort of impressed itself upon me that it was time to get up and live life again that I began sensing his energy.  
It started when one of my daughter’s toys–a play telephone–was left alone in the living room and said, “Hello?  Is anybody there?” and we’d never heard it say that before, nor ever again.  We wondered if it was him.  
Then, one day I was working on my truck (that used to be his) and encountered a problem I couldn’t seem to figure out.  I just said, “Dad, I sure could use your help.”  A short time later, the difficulty seemed to disappear and the answer came simply to me, almost out of the blue, without my thinking about it.  
Since then, whenever I get stuck on something or have to find something, I just ask him for help, and whatever it is I can’t find turns up within minutes.  I’m led directly to a spot that I would never think of looking, and sure enough, whatever it is, is there.  
It started to be sort of a humorous thing, because it was a little out of character for him, and of all the ways we could communicate, I wouldn’t have guessed this was going to be it.  But it happens without fail.  Sometimes I think he’s still being “The Dad” and coming to the rescue of his daughter.  
I was somewhat skeptical at first, but once I relaxed and let myself believe, it started to happen more often. I find myself talking to him more and more now, and for that matter, other elders I love dearly who physically left this world.  Despite what happens in my daily life, opening up that door has brought me much peace and insight and inspired me to do more than just exist.  
My papa passed back in 1998. I was blessed to be with him at his passing over. He and I still have a strong connection.
Just about every time I work outside in the yard, he is sitting on my porch and just grinning from ear to ear wearing his orange shaded glasses and shaking his head in disbelief at how much I am loving my “country Life.” He marvels at how much I am doing in my “country life style” such as filling 12 bird feeders, sawing logs for the fire pit, growing herbs and such. doing more and more organically all the time…
I can feel how much joy he has seeing all of this.
–Rosemary Pizio

I was “visited” by my maternal grandmother at the time of her death in 1985.  I was sleeping in my dorm room, freshman year in college in Wisconsin, a great distance away from my grandmother’s home in Washington where she passed after a several-year struggle with cancer.  I knew she was ill, but was not sure when she would die. 


I was woken from a deep sleep to find my grandmother at my bedside.  I remember feeling very comforted by her presence.  She appeared as a 3D being, not a dream.  I felt the softness of her skin as she placed her long-fingered hand on my forehead and told me “It’s okay.  Everything will be all right.  Good bye.”  She proceeded to sort of disappear through the wall near my bed.


I glanced at my digital clock that read 5:30 a.m. and for a moment felt confused about what she was doing there so far from home.  I decided it was a dream and went back to sleep.  At 6:30 a.m. I woke again to knocking on my door, being told there was a phone call for me on the public hall phone.  I put on my robe, took the call, and it was my dad telling me my grandmother had died during the night.


Erin Waterman



The day before my mother passed over I became unwell and was unable to be with her..

While I was resting I had a vision in my minds eye of my mother.
She passed over that night and I know that Spirit sent me a message to let me know that she was going.
I saw her very clearly.
She is still with me and often sends me a message through a medium when i go for a reading.
She recently told me that I should contact my brother because he was going through a rough patch.
When I called him he told me that he had throat cancer and was going for treatment this week

Among Mediums – An Interview with Author Julie Beischel, PhD (& Giveaway!)

Today I have the pleasure of sharing a recorded interview with Julie Beischel, Ph.D., the author of

Among Mediums: A Scientist's Quest for Answers

“Among Mediums: A Scientist’s Quest For Answers.”

Windbridge Institute Logo

Dr. Julie Beischel is the co-founder and director of research at the Windbridge Institute, and following the suicide of her mother and an evidential mediumship reading, Dr. Julie Beischel forfeited a potentially lucrative career in the pharmaceutical industry to pursue rigorous scientific research with mediums full-time.

She is currently a member of Parapsychological Association and the Society for Scientific Exploration.

Dr. Beischel has generously offered the gift of a Windbridge Institute membership to one lucky PBI commentor……scroll down to find out how to participate!

You can listen to the two-part audio or read the full transcript below.

Part one:Listen to the recording about intuitionPart two: Listen to the recording about intuition

Angela: Dr. Beischel welcome. I loved reading your bio. You have such an accomplished background and such a fascinating one especially since you are studying mediumship. It is a pleasure to have you. I reached out to you because of the book that you published in January. “Among Mediums”, and it’s abook that you were gracious enough to send me.  I read it and loved it. It was fun because your voice was just so funny. I found myself entertained while I learned a lot as I read it.

Readers of Powered by Intuition would really love to know a bit more about you since you are someone who is leading a way in researching mediumship.

De.Beischel: My Ph.D. is in Pharmacology and Toxicology with some minor in Microbiology and Immunology. While I was in graduate school my mom committed suicide and I went through my normal grieving process and a few years later “The Crossing Over, With John Edwards” show was on TV and that was sort of my first interaction with the medium.

Readers’ Stories of Encountering the Spirit of a Loved One

Readers’ Stories of Encountering the Spirit of a Loved One

Life after death evidence

Life after death

Today, I’m excited to share submissions from Powered by Intuition readers about encountering the spirit of a deceased loved one.

These stories illustrate what I believe: We’re all connected in spirit and naturally intuitive.  Each of these readers is a mediumistic in their own right. Communication with the spirit of a loved happens spontaneously and requires no preparation such as, the need to study psychic development or mediumship..

Their stories prove that the love that connects us to one another survives physical death and is all we need to receive a communication from the spirit world. Your loved ones want to let you know they are okay. They want to let you know they still love you and will always be with you. All you need to do is stay open to receiving their message.

These four personal encounters are great examples of the variety of ways your loved ones communicate their presence to you.

Seeing a spirit

When I was a young girl approximately 8 or 9 years old my favorite uncle passed away from a heart attack. I was devastated by his death, he was always the one who was there for my brother, sister and I. Our favorite ritual if you will, was heading down back to the lower part of our property to build a camp fire for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. My uncle Bill would tell us stories, make us laugh and couldn’t get enough of those roasted marshmallows. Ha.
On the morning of the funeral, we all went to say our goodbyes to a great man. Upon walking up to the casket and looking at my uncle, I knew he was no longer there. The only thing I saw was an empty body, I knew his spirit had moved on. The hardest part was knowing I would never see him again, not in this life anyway. I went home and cried myself to sleep that night.
The following morning I awoke and sat up on the edge of the bed, when I looked up my uncle Bill was standing in the doorway looking down at me. There he was in his black pin stripe suit that he loved so well. I knew he came back to let me know that everything was alright and that his spirit would always be near.
I wasn’t able to tell my parents about this experience because I knew in my heart they would never believe me. We were taught that there are no such things as spirits or ghosts and of course would have been punished had we ever spoke of such things. I pray that parents of today will be more open and receptive of things their children see and hear. I can tell you from personal experience that there is a spirit world and it isn’t something to be feared.

Clairaudience – Hearing from the spirit world

A few years ago I was living in Florida and my aunt, who lived in Detroit area, was very ill and in the hospital.  I was very close to her and my sister called to say she was dying.  I immediately made a plane reservation to return to Detroit before she passed.

While on the plane I suddenly heard, “It’s all over now.”

Don’t know who said it to me but, it did not sound like her.  When I landed my sister said she died and gave me the time 8:50 p.m. which was the exact time I had received the message.

While babysitting for my grandchild and doing my nails I heard my aunt, whom had passed say, “Bow, what in the world is going on?”   I explained to her that she had passed and was now in the spirit world.  She didn’t reply but, did not return to visit me again.

Smelling the presence of a spirit

My eldest son passed away 3 years ago.
It was my father`s 70th birthday recently.
We live 16,000 km apart on different continents & hemispheres.
They live in a mountainous area and don`t often have satellite reception.
I just sent a text message birthday wish.
Later that evening, in a specific area, I `smelled` my son’s scent.
A couple of days later it happened again.
I`m not sure, maybe it`s him making his presence known & acknowledging
this special time for his grandfather.

Spirit Visitation in a Dream

When my father died, I was very shocked, and there was one thing I was really sorry about. I felt I mistreated him in one way, on a specific occasion, and I really felt sorry for hurting him (emotionally).
It was maybe about a year after he had passed, that I had this dream:
I was in a graveyard of some kind, or larger field, other ‘people’ helpers were there (maybe angels), and then a floor door (or a door on the ground) opened, and out came my father, he came up the steps. I was so happy to see him, we hugged and embraced, and I told him, that I was so sorry about what happened, and that I didn’t want to hurt him. He told me, that all is fine, and that he had no hard feelings, and he completely understood, and didn’t take it personally. That all is well.
I was so relieved and so happy, and then we had to say goodbyes , and he had to go down those steps again and retreat under ground.
I wasn’t sad seeing  him leave, it was all right.
I know he was fine and that all is well.
This very vivid dream helped me tremendously
I really believe he came and visited me from the other side…
–Caroline Cameron
I want to thank these wonderful Powered by Intuition readers for sharing their private stories with us. The more openly we share the more educated we all become on the topic of life after death and the survival of consciousness after physical death.
Encounters with the spirit world are not scary or spooky or unnatural. It’s just love doing what love does….reaching out and saying, “I miss you, I love you, I’m okay – just wanted you to know.”
When we die we leave our body behind but, not our intelligence nor ingenuity.
Do you see how these four spirits used different means of communicating with their loved ones? Have you ever encountered the spirit of a loved one? What happened. Share your story in the comments.

Grieving a Loved One (Love Never Dies)

Grieving a Loved One (Love Never Dies)

“Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them” – George Eliot

The Soul of the Rose

After getting the call that my father passed away, I picked up my mother and raced to the hospital.

The nurse handed us a brown paper bag with his personal effects and then led us to the room where he spent his last moments alive. I looked at him but, while it was his body – it was no longer him.  I “knew” he was no longer in there.

I pulled two chairs along side of the hospital bed and we sat down, neither one of us saying a word.

After a while my eyes began playing tricks on me. Had he just blinked?

No. It was just wishful thinking.

“Dad, talk to me, please,” I thought while staring intently at his lifeless body. “Are you alright? Was someone here from the spirit world to meet you when you vacated your body?”

I had so many thoughts racing through my mind. Would he come through to me?

I didn’t want to upset my mother. She cried softly into a tissue held over the bottom half of her face. I forced back my own tears so, I wouldn’t make it any worse for her.

My mother got up to use the restroom, leaning heavily on her cane as she walked into the hospital corridor.

And when she left the room, it happened.

Suddenly, on the other side of the bed stood my father and his sister with their arms around one another – beaming! A wavy light framed them. This light had “depth” to it, almost as if it were a portal where I could “walk” into their world and join them if I wanted to. And, oh how I wanted to but, I couldn’t move. I was frozen in place, transfixed by what I was seeing.

Neither of them said anything but, they didn’t have to. I could tell from the expression on their faces that they were laughing and enjoying their reunion.  I felt my heart open up and wave of love from the two of them poured into it. The love they sent was beyond words to describe. It hit me with a mighty force – thwack!

My father was wearing his favorite safari jacket and beloved Greek fisherman’s cap. My aunt glowed in a peacock blue gown and matching scarf in her hair. And then, in flash they disappeared.

“No! Wait,” I cried.

I bounded to the other side of the bed where they had stood only seconds before, “Come back. Talk to me, please.”

But, it was over and they had gone.

“What if it was my imagination,” I thought beginning to doubt myself. Had I really seen them or had my desire to “see” my father created this vision?

I pulled a tissue from my purse to wipe my eyes and sat down.

I kept looking around the room hoping that my father and aunt would reappear but, they never did.

That evening I called a fellow medium.

I told her that I’d seen my father but, gave her no details other than telling her he hadn’t said anything to me.

“Can you bring my father through?” I asked rather impatiently. “I have to know he is alright.”

And then she said, “He’s here and he is with a woman wearing a long blue dress with a matching blue band in her hair.”

My knees actually buckled. I was so happy. She was seeing exactly what I had seen.

Andrea accurately described my father, whom she had never met, and what I had seen him wearing. He told her how he had passed and that he was now okay. He described his “journey to the other side” as being “out of this world” which was also extremely evidential. One of his favorite phrases had been to say, “It was out of this world.”

He also showed her several other relatives he was celebrating being reunited with and gave their names – all of whom I recognized. Everything she saw and heard was evidential and proved to me that she really was communicating with my father. Of course, the major proof for me was that she saw both he and my aunt in the exact same way I had.

I was so relieved to hear that he was alright. I felt my father’s presence and the love he had for me while the medium was communicating with him. I felt great joy that he was celebrating with his parents, and other relatives. I still grieved over the loss of his physical presence but, I didn’t feel he was lost to me forever. I felt he was with me right by side and it was so  very comforting.

In the days and months after my father passed I saw him numerous times and also got many signs of his presence. And, I never doubted again thanks to the validation I received that day.

Four main reasons people see a medium 

1. Evidence of survival of death. Even if you are in the habit of seeing or hearing spirits and sensing their presence, like I was, you might think that what is happening to you is just your imagination. It’s natural to doubt and think you made it all up when you want something so badly. Having a medium bring through your loved one will validate what has been happening to you. No, you’re not going crazy. It really was him or her.

The medium conveyed what she saw, and there she was, my lovely Mom, recalling all the happy events of her life in detail, reassuring me that her spiritual body was whole, that she would always look out for us, describing my recent accident and a number of other memories.  Now, the medium had no way of knowing any of these things and I was amazed at the connection I felt. At the end of the hour-long reading, I closed my eyes and felt my Mom hug me from behind and place her cheek close to mine, as she always did. I have not felt happier in my life. 
Though I felt sad today, her third anniversary because she is no longer with us, in some sense, I also felt immeasurable peace, because of this reading. Love never dies. –Vidya Sury, Vidya*

2. Feel their love again. Feeling the love they send you makes you realize that they do live on and that love never dies. After all, the only thing you take with you on the journey when you transition are your memories and the loving bonds you created. Many times we know that they are present because we “feel” their presence and feel the love we shared with them but, we want “proof” that it is real. When you feel their love while in the company of a medium it increases your belief and faith in life after death.

My mediumship reading brought me a lot of peace.  My father passed from Alzheimer’s.  Although my beliefs led me to believe that he hadn’t died but only passed to a new dimension, it still bothered me.  I wanted to know if he was still in a fog, as he was before he passed, or was he free from his prison and free once again.  During the reading my father came through at once, as if he were there waiting to come in.  He “put” pictures into the medium’s mind that she conveyed to me.  I immediately felt connected to my Dad and could feel his energy of love.  Everything that she “saw” I could relate too and understood why he was sharing it with us.  At the end of the conversation I was completely convinced that my father is out of his prison, that he is happy and free and at peace.  Not only that, he is still with me whenever I “call” and walking with me illuminating my way when I need him.  Today I felt so light and peaceful myself knowing that he truly is still a part of my life and that I will see him again when I pass. –Vicki Pearson*

3. Heal grief. Your pain at losing them is healed by knowing that you are only temporarily separated and that you will see your loved one again. While you will still grieve and miss them terribly you will also feel joy at knowing that they are still with you and that you can speak to them and that they do, in fact, hear you. Your grief will lesson when you realize that they can be with you at all major family events and that you can hear through a medium about the details of the event and “know” they really were there.

Since my mediumship reading, although I dearly miss my brother, I feel so close to him, know he is with me, have evidential messages that have stayed with me and it’s made a difference that I hadn’t expected to feel. I turned a corner in terms of the pain- and for anyone who is grieving the loss of somebody they loved, I wish this for you as well. –Lisa Claudia Briggs, Intuitive Body*

4. Validate your experiences. All the little signs they send or dreams they visit you in will become much more meaningful as you will know with complete certainty, that this is really coming from them. You will have an entirely new perspective on “physical death.” And, an entirely new outlook on life.

After my reading, I now know without a doubt that we never lose connection with those we love after they transition. A year after my mom died I was at my grandson’s birthday party. Before walking into my daughter’s home the hair on my arms stood up and I knew she was with us. I didn’t think of it again until after the party was over. My daughter asked everyone if they wanted a glass of wine. She took the bottle out of the fridge and the name on the label was “Seven Daughters.” My mom had seven daughters. It was then that I remembered  feeling her presence earlier. –Tess Marshall, The Bold Life*

13 Signs You May Be a Medium

13 Signs You May Be a Medium

Have you ever wondered if you might be a medium?Signs you might be a medium

Read this article to learn the 13 signs of mediumistic abilities and see if you are a budding medium.

There are two types of mediums

A natural born medium and latent medium – one who develops their abilities later in life. Being a natural born medium means that your abilities presented themselves from childhood. A latent medium has the abilities but, they do not present themselves until later in life.

Developing psychic mediumship later in life is usually due to an inner transformation that triggers a spiritual awakening and search for more meaning in life.

Differences between intuition, psychic ability and mediumship

Every person is intuitive to a degree. Intuition is your own inner wisdom. It is a higher form of “instinct” and it is programmed into humans in order to avoid danger and so our species will survive.

Psychic ability is going outside of oneself and retrieving information.

A psychic can tap into the future or the past and has abilities such as “clairvoyance” which is seeing what cannot be seen with the physical eyes; “clairaudience” which is the ability to hear within the mind what cannot be heard with the physical ears; “clairsentience” which is the ability to experience other people’s emotions and physical ailments; “claircognizance” which is clearly knowing something without knowing how you know.

All mediums are psychic but, not all psychics are mediums

A medium will have all of the previous abilities but, in addition, they will also have highly developed telepathic abilities that allow them to receive “mind to mind” communication from a deceased individual. They will be able to “see” and describe the deceased, “hear” words, names, phrases and sometimes complete sentences and, “feel” the presence or experience the feelings or pains/illnesses of the deceased individual and will describe all of this to you as it is given to them by the discarnate.

Here are some signs that you may be a medium. The sign applies to you whether it appeared in childhood or at a more mature age. You don’t have to have had all these things happen to you to be mediumistic:

1. As a child did you have a fear of the dark? Did you hear your name being called or see faces or shadows moving about your room? Did you need a nightlight in the room in order to sleep undisturbed and peacefully?

2. Were you aware of “feeling different” or not fitting in as a child and while growing up? Were you a bit of a loner and not a joiner? Did you feel mature or like “old soul” compared to your playmates? Did adults constantly remark on how “mature” you were? Do you recall knowing things but, not knowing how you knew?

3. Were you drawn at an early age to explore metaphysics, spirituality and religion? Were you always searching for answers to the “big” questions in life such as, “why are here?” and “what is the point of our lives?”

4. Were you or are you now visited by discarnate beings? Do you “see” spirits? Keep in mind that most of the time mediums “see” within the mind’s eye not with the physical eye although, this does occur.

5. You may not have been afraid of the dark but, were aware of spirits (or people – you may not have realized they were deceased) at a very young age. Did you have what your parents called an “imaginary friend? Did you tell them you “saw grandma?”

6. Are you sensitive to energy? Can you sense when someone walks into the room without turning around? Being aware of “presences” and sensing the “energy” change in your environment. Have you ever been “touched” or tapped on the shoulder by a spirit? Some mediums do not “see” or “hear” as much as they get much their information “clairsentiently” or “claircognizantly.”

7. Have you always had vivid dreams that you recall upon waking? Were the dreams sometimes precognitive – meaning they predicted some future event that came to pass? Were you visited by deceased relatives in these dreams? When you woke up did you feel as if they had really been there?

8. When you close your eyes did or do you see colors, faces and landscapes? Did you sometimes “see” in your mind’s eye that you are flying over changing landscapes or seascapes? Can you close your eyes and “see” what someone is wearing or doing? Can you “see” what their house looks like?

9. Have you had spontaneous out of body experiences? Were you able to look back and see your “body?” Did you hurdle through the blackness of space and pass by stars at incredible speeds? Did you encounter discarnate entities while out of your body?

10. Did you or do you sometimes blurt things out that you “heard” in your mind that you had no way of knowing that turn out to be true? Are you aware of “knocks, “raps,” or “hearing” whispers or people talking that you can’t make out, or can you recall hearing directives such as, “NO” or “STOP” or “DON’T GO THERE” throughout the course of your life, or a ringing in your ears quite often?

11. Did you or do you “see” symbols or colors around people? “Seeing”  this way usually takes place within the mind’s eye not the physical eyes. Do you “see” for example, a hospital bed and then learn the next day this person was rushed to the hospital? Or, do you see colors in certain places on a person that you “understand” to mean certain things about them? You are seeing the person’s energy signature – their aura.

12. Have you ever been aware of how others felt emotionally or the pain they were experiencing in their body? Do your moods change when you are around others? Are you susceptible to picking up other people’s moods? If someone is angry are you agitated by their energy?

13. Have you ever held an object belonging to another person and gotten a strong sense about that person? Were you able to describe their personality or something they were going through? Reading objects is called “psychometry.” You have the ability to interpret the residual energy accumulated within or attached to an object from its owner.

If you regularly experience six, seven or more of these signs you are mediumistic and could develop your abilities further if you desire.

Have you experienced any of these signs? Which ones – what happened? Are you interested in learning more about mediumship?
