5 Reasons Why Mediums Cannot Reach Every Spirit

5 Reasons Why Mediums Cannot Reach Every Spirit

I want you to connect with your loved ones. I really do. When I am able to facilitate a good connection and you can really feel your loved one there with us the experience is exhilarating! I love being able to you one more connection and to show you that your loved ones are still with you.

But I can't always do it.  I wish I could. Try as I might there are just some spirits I can't reach.

Please know this does NOT mean that the loved one is not in the spirit world. Or that they are trapped here on earth or any other negative thing.  It simply means for any number of reasons their loved one and I are not able to communicate.

Sometimes in a reading my client really, really wants to reach a particular person in spirit and for any number of reasons I am not able to connect in a meaningful way.

So why does that happen?

1. Free Will

Everyone has free will.  Just as you cannot make anyone here do anything you also cannot make any spirit do anything. That is why I cannot guarantee that a particular spirit will come through for you. I can no more make promises on behalf of those in spirit than I can of people here in the physical world.

In this regard, I have heard people say things like "I know my loved one would mention X". My response to this you are making assumptions. You don't know that. There may be a reason they don't. It may fall into one of the categories listed below as well.

2.Radio dial

Many mediums liken mediumship to a radio dial.   Mediums work in a given range of vibration frequency much like a radio dial receives radio transmission within a certain range of frequency.  People in the spirit world can communicate within a certain range of frequency.  If the mediums frequency does not match up with the spirit person's frequency then they can't communicate.

3. The Medium's and the Spirit Communicator's styles Do Not Match

Have you ever experienced trying to talk with someone and all you can come up with is awkward small talk? Then you start a conversation with someone else and you feel like instant best friends with no problem communicating?

It's like that with spirit people too.  Sometimes we mediums just get along better with some spirit people than with others. I find that if a person was a good communicator when alive then he usually makes a good communicator as a spirit too.

4. Experience

Usually the more experience you have with any skill the better you are at it.  Mediumship works the same way.  The more experienced the medium the more spirit people he or she can communicate with and the better they are at receiving and interpreting messages.  That's why it is important that mediums continue to hone their skills with meditation, practice, classes and sitting in mediumship circles.

I still take classes, and do as many readings as I can and do a special meditation every day to enhance my abilities.

5. Unknown Reasons

There are some things that it is just best for us to not know.  Sometimes a spirit person doesn't come through or doesn't want to connect and I really don't know why.  When this happens I like to offer my clients another time to connect.  I do want to make the connections for you that you want.

I find that I can typically connect with most spirits that my clients want to connect with. However, I also find that not all connections are really great. On average I find that about 10%-25% of connections are really great.  I find that 50%-70% are pretty good and 10%-25% are really not good at all. So usually in a given reading I will have one great connection and a couple that are good and one where I barely get any information at all.

I hope this post has answered some of your questions.  Thank you for reading.

Love,

Beloved Fiance in Spirit Comes Through

Why is Evidence Important?

 

Beloved Fiance In Spirit Comes Through

Beloved Fiance Comes Through

I had an amazing experience with Spirit today that I'm excite to share with you.

I was sitting in my office and I started to feel a presence with me.  Once he knew I could feel him, he sent me tastes and smell.  I started smelling fresh-cut grass and the gasoline and oil of a lawn mower. He also sent me an image of the lady he wanted to communicate with.

I knew who she was through Facebook. I've read for her before. I also knew this was her beloved fiance who passed away over a year ago.  She has been missing him so much and has not yet been able to connect with him through a medium.

Immediately I messaged her on Facebook and gave her the evidence I was getting: cut grass, gasoline, lawnmower, coconut bath products, other luxurious bath products and the oddest one - donuts in the garage.

She texted right back and was overjoyed to hear from her beloved. She verified all of the evidence I was getting. The messages of loved flowed. They have a son together as well and the spirit man expressed joy and love and pride for their boy.

I'm so grateful for my gift. I'm so grateful to be able to make these connections for people. I love what I do and I love demonstrating that our souls absolutely do go on after our physical deaths.

Love Always,
Chloe

West Highland Terrier Says Hello

Pets Love to Say Hello

I love it when I'm doing a psychic reading and the sitter's loved ones in spirit pop in to say hello. My client is always so happy. I love that I can help people that way.

Recently I was doing a psychic reading for someone regarding some career advice.  At the end of the reading she asked "Do you see anything else for me?" Just then a west highland terrier came into my mind.

I said "You have a west highland terrier?" She immediately started crying and said "Oh she died. I miss her so much!" I was so happy to be able to tell her that her little sweet pooch was safe and happy on the other side and is still with her now.

My client was thrilled! It made her day. These are the moments that I am so grateful for as a psychic medium.

With Love,

Everyday Miracles

Mystery Spirit Uncovered

I just love it when months after a reading Spirit comes through to validate information given months before.

As you may recall, back in April, 2017 I went to New Jersey for a workshop.  At this workshop we did quite a few "speed readings". We had 2-5 minutes with each person to make as many spirit  connections as we could.  So there was never enough time to get a good detailed reading. Three different times during this workshop a female spirit came through whom I could not identify.

The mediums reading for me told me she was about my age, had blond hair she wore in a pony tail and had a bubbly personality.  They said I had been good friends with this person in high school but had not been close to her for a while. One medium told me this person had died from cancer.

Each time this came up I couldn't place this spirit. This description just didn't fit any of my high school friends. I told the medium I didn't know who it was and we moved on.  My own loved ones and family members on the other side couldn't even come through because this lady kept coming through first.

The third time she came through I was sitting with Laurel Bleadon Maffei.  I told Laurel this same mystery spirit had come through several times and I couldn't identify her.  I asked Laurel if she could get some more information from her.

Laurel had an interesting message from the spirit for me. She told me that at some future point it would be obvious who this spirit was.  She told me that the lady in spirit was working on it and would bring it all together and when it comes up in the future I would know.  Laurel said that I didn't need to try and figure out who it was and that it would become clear.  She said that I would see something on Facebook or be talking to someone and I would know who this mystery spirit lady was.

Well of course, even though Laurel said I didn't need to,  I tried to figure out who it was. I searched all over Facebook and I even Googled old friends who I thought could possibly fit this description to see if I could find any obituaries.  I found nothing.

Fast forward eight months and I had forgotten about this mystery spirit. I had also reconnected with my cousin Whitnee.  We are about the same age but haven't seen or talked with each other since we were little girls.

I was talking with Whitnee and she mentioned her friend Heidi who had passed away from leukemia.  Suddenly I remembered the mystery spirit who kept showing up in my workshop. This is who the spirit was! I just KNEW it!

Interrupting Whitnee, I fired questions at her. "Were you friends in high school? Did she had blond hair? Did she wear it in a pony tail and have a bubbly personality?" Whitnee said yes they had been good friends but hadn't seen each other in a while. She confirmed that her friend had blond hair that she wore in a pony tail and had a bubbly personality.  I told her that I think Heidi had been coming through in my workshop.

As soon as I told Whitnee the story she knew it was her friend Heidi.  Whitnee said that April was significant in this story because Heidi had died in April.  Heidi passed away April 19, 2016 and her funeral was April 24, 2016. The workshop I attended was April 21-22,  2017. So it was  exactly a year later I was in this workshop and Heidi came through.

As a medium, of course I love it when I'm reading for someone and the information is immediately verifiable.  That's instant gratification.  But pretty often a spirit gives information that isn't immediately verifiable.  When the evidence is verified later the magic that happens can't even be matched.

Every day I'm so very grateful to the Great Spirit for my gift.

Love,
Chloe

Spirit Tells Me Froot Loops

Hi Everyone! I made a quick little video to tell you about something super cool that happened to me recently with some evidence a spirit gave me.

Sometimes a spirit will provide me with evidence that either isn't immediately verifiable or just isn't that great right away.  But I trust what spirit gives me and stick with it.

Then later the information is verified by someone else or the person I'm reading for makes a discovery that connect with the evidence I gave.  When these situations happen it is a truly magical experience.

Thanks for watching!

What Is It Like to See A Spirit?

What is it like to see a spirit?  As a psychic medium I see spirits both objectively and subjectively.   When I see a spirit subjectively it appears in my mind. . This can feel like it's just my imagination and used to cause me a lot of doubt. It was only after confirming the details time after time with my clients that I came to trust these images.

Many times I see a spirit objectively, meaning that I actually see them outside of me with my physical eyes.  I find it odd that while I know I'm seeing them with my eyes I also know that other people around me can't see them.

They often startle me and I can still find it unsettling to see the spirits objectively. However, it is by far my favorite way to see them.  I have a logical mind and I still like that external awareness so that I know they are really there.

When I see a spirit objectively I can see it either as a shadow person or as a flash of light. . When I see flashes of light they are usually purple.  But I have seen them in red, green, orange, and white too.  But that's pretty rare.  About 99% of the time they are purple.  Sometimes the flashes of light come with lots of information about the spirit but sometimes I don't have any idea who it is.

When I see a shadow person what I actually see is movement out of the corner of my eye. When I turn to look directly at it there is nothing there.  Immediately I get a strong image in my mind of who or what the spirit is.  Usually it's a person but sometimes it's an animal.  Just the other day I saw an animal spirit.  It was the pet cat of a neighbor from my childhood.  I haven't thought of this kitty for many years. She was just saying hello.

When the spirit people appear this way to me the evidence they provide is fantastic.  This can be when I get some very specific details from the spirit people.  I used to experience this sort of visitation with my massage clients quite a bit.  Their loved ones in spirit would arrive about 15 minutes before their appointment.  I'd ask them to take a seat in the waiting area until the appointment.  Sometimes they would startle me as I would run right into them in my massage office while setting up for my client.

I have become more used to seeing the spirits and consequently see them more and more often. Now I welcome them when they arrive early for a client appointment.  I think it's charming that they are so excited to be able to communicate with their loved one that they arrive early and wait.

Love,
Chloe

How Does Someone Become a Medium?

How Does Someone become a medium

How Does Someone Become a Medium?

So how does someone become a medium? Are we born this way? Do we learn this? Can you study and become a medium?

The answer is that nobody really knows for sure.  There are different ideas out there about how mediums come about.  Some mediums believe that mediums are born and not made and no amount of trying will make you a medium.  Others believe anyone can be a medium. They believe that if you study and sit in development circles and try to develop yourself you will become a medium.

Mediums are like basketball players

I believe the answer is somewhere in between.  I do think anyone can do this .  However, I don't believe everyone can do it well.  To me it's like playing  basketball.  Anyone can technically do it.  With lessons and practice you might even get pretty good.

But for most people no matter how many lessons and practice you do you aren't going to be LeBron James.  I can shoot a basketball.  Sometimes I even get it in the net.  I can learn the rules of the game well enough.  With enough practice and instruction I could probably even play on a non-competitive local team for middle aged ladies.  But I'm never going to be able to play professionally.

Some people are just born with more of a natural inclination to play basketball.  When they work hard and practice they get really, really good and can play professionally.

It's the same with mediumship.  Some people are born just being able to communicate with the spirit world better than others.  They always know the spirit people are there and never question it. With practice they can get really good at it and even help other people.

Inherited Ability

My mediumship seemed to come out of nowhere. It just started. I did not want it and was not expecting it.  So what about people like me who aren't mediums then suddenly become mediums?

When I look back over my life I can see that actually mediumship was always there. I just pushed it away for a very long time for a number of reasons.  However, it's my life work so  eventually the mediumship asserted itself and I was called to be a medium. When you have something in your life that you are supposed to do...something that you are destined to do as part of your life plan the ringing becomes so loud that you have little choice but to answer the call.

Nature And Nurture

My mediumship ability is inherited.  It comes from my dad's side of the family.  My dad could do it if he wanted.  My grandmother could have done it had she wanted to and my great grandmother had the gift. However, none of them developed it.

Although, my ability is inherited I have also worked hard to hone the skill.  I have attended workshops, sat in circles and meditation, and done distance courses.  Like many people with raw natural abilities, like a star basketball player, I needed coaching and teaching to be the best medium I can be.  It's important that I practice my skill to the best of my ability so that I can give the best readings possible so that you can get the most healing you can.

So I believe mediums, like any other skilled, talented person are both born and made.

Chloe

How I Went From Massage Therapist to Medium

Chloe Miguel Psychic Medium

How I Became a Medium

(This is the same information that's on my About Me page. But I thought I'd post it here too because I like my story  :-))

This is the story about me.  It's the story of how I became a medium.

My Childhood

My whole life I've been interested in the paranormal. Even as a child I was interested in developing psychic ability. As an adult I studied mysticism as part of my degree in philosophy.

When I was a child I was always afraid of ghosts. I would see things out of the corner of my eye but would dismiss them as my "imagination" or my "eyes playing tricks on me."  That sounds silly to me now. Why would my eyes play tricks on me? It doesn't even make sense.  But, since I didn't understand the spirit world, those things scared me. Consequently, I spent my whole life pushing it away and convincing myself it wasn't real. I hid under my covers my entire  life attempting to hide from the spirits.

The Trumpet

When my twin sister and I were in the fifth grade she wanted to play a musical instrument in the school band. My father had an old trumpet that had belonged to my uncle who had been killed in the Vietnam War.  He suggested that my sister play this trumpet.

Once my sister started playing that trumpet we both began having  experiences. I remember one day playing in my room alone.  When I looked up at my closet door a soldier appeared in the wood grain.  This startled and terrified me!  During this time of my childhood I would frequently "see things".  When I would see something I would look quickly and it would be gone. My sister had vivid dreams of our uncle and would wake up screaming in the night.  It got so bad that she would not go to bed at night unless the trumpet was locked up in it's case downstairs by the piano.

My parents were logically minded. So naturally they told me that it was all just my imagination. Nonetheless, these experiences continued. Since I had no understanding of the spirit world I didn't know there is nothing to fear and I was scared.  Now of course, I realize that my poor uncle was doing everything he could to let my family know he was OK.  He didn't mean to scare my sister and me.

College

In college as a philosophy major, I found it popular to be an agnostic or atheist. Logic ruled in philosophy in those days and the spirit world is not logical. After all, we belived, if it can't be proven by science then it can't be real. I felt that believing in God and the spirit world was backward and letting faith rather than reason rule your life.

After graduating college I was not sure in what direction I wanted to go. So I went to massage school. That way I had a skill and could have a job.  I worked as a self-employed massage therapist for 15 years. It was during this time that I realized I am a medium.

Spirit Appears

I enjoyed a lengthy career as a massage therapist owning my own clinic for most of my career. Many clients came to see the therapists in my clinic and we pride ourselves on our high quality therapeutic massage.  My clinic earned the respect of medical professionals across our community and my therapists enjoyed good careers.

Then the spirits made themselves known to me. I started to see flashes of purple light.  These lights continued for a year before I knew what they were. I understood some new age concepts of spirit guides and things like that so I assumed the lights were my guides or angels. The lights frequently showed up while I was in session with a massage client. Assuming they were guides I greeted them and thanked them for coming.

After this I periodically started having information drop into my head while I was working with a massage client.  I started to suspect the information was coming from spirit but I still did not realize I am a medium.

The First Time

The first time I knew I was having a mediumship experience I was working on one of my regular clients when I was suddenly having thoughts of her grandmother. The grandmother was making herself known to me and I understood this. Since I trusted this particular client I told her what I was feeling from her grandmother.  We were both stunned at the the information and details that I seemed to somehow know about the deceased grandmother.  As a massage therapist, I was familiar with energy, qi and other new age concepts.  I knew I must be having an experience with mediumship. Where else were all those details coming from? But I thought it was mostly likely a one time event. I was wrong about that.

The Purple Lights

About a year after the purple lights  first appeared I realized what they were. I had just walked into my massage room with a new client and was listening to her tell me her symptoms when a very bright purple light flashed right next to her. In that instant I KNEW what the light was. I knew it was a spirit who wanted to talk with her and I knew it was her mother.

I debated on whether to say anything to my client for about two seconds then plunged ahead.  The spirit of her mother connected very well with me and the information poured out. Detail after detail came through. The mother came into my body telling her daughter how much she loved her and what a good girl she was. I could feel so strongly her love for her daugher. I sat there hugging my client as we cried together. This mother's love for her daughter filled me as both the mother in spirit and her daughter here healed their relationship.

That session was transforming for both my client and me. She was able to finally heal life-long issues with her mother. And I came out of it knowing I am a medium.

Massage Therapist to Medium

Word must have gotten around in the spirit world because from then on many of my massage clients showed up with spirits. I would insist that I was not going to say anything to my clients in order not to freak them out. But the spirits had other plans. They would flash brighter and brighter purple lights at me to get my attention.  The lights would startle me in the middle of the massage so I freaked my clients out anyway. Then I would tell my client who was there and what he or she wanted.

Eventually I became very conflicted as a massage therapist. When spirits would show up I did not always know if it was safe to say anything to my massage client. They were seeing me for massage and not everybody is open to mediumship.  Masssage clients also started scheduling massages and asking me who was there for them.

I was growing more and more conflicted. Additionally, my body was starting to give out.  After a 15 year career my shoulders hurt all the time. At the same time our state licensing changed and I didn't like the direction it had gone.

So I decided to let my massage license go and pursue a new career as a medium. And that is how I became a medium.

Blessings,
Chloe

What is an Apport?

Book with headphones.

What is an apport and is it real?

Have you ever had objects appear or disappear? Of course you have.  We all have.  but sometimes it's a little weird when it happens. Sometimes it's an apport.

I have an analytical mind.  I want proof of everything.  That's part of why it was so hard to initally accept my mediumship. . After all how can I trust something I can't see? Or if I can see it,I somehow know other people can't see it and then still can't trust it.  Because my mind is so analytical and requires proof when objects disappear I assume that I've just lost them due to my carelessness. I am not a very organized person so that's a reasonable assumption.  But what about when I find an object? Or when an object just appears?

When an object appears with no reasonable explanation it could be an apport.  There are many stories of apports appearing in Seances.  Flowers and particularly roses have been apports in many Spiritualist seances.

I have only had the experience of objects appearing a few times that I can recall.  Of course, now that I know I'm a medium I pay more attention to them and also seem to be experiencing them more frequently. I recently had a ponytail holder appear on the seat of my chair right after I stood up from it during a workshop.  I purposefully had not brought any pony tail holders with me.  But after all it's just a pony tail holder.  While the incident was odd it's still just a pony tail holder and I can't say it's an apport without some doubt.

Headphones Apport

Yesterday I found a pair of headphones I have been missing for about a year. . They were on top of a small book case that I use every day. EVERY DAY. In fact, I just cleared this book case of books I no longer need two weeks ago.  The book case is small. It's only about three feet high.  There are hooks on my wall directly above it high enough that I hang my clothes on them. Every Day.

The headphones appeared directly below where I hang my pajama pants every day. They appeared while I was on the phone with another medium...right on top of my copy of Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications.

Now I guess it's possible that for nearly  year I have overlooked these headphones.  I supposed I could have used this book case every single day and moved the books around and cleaned it off and not seen these headphones.  But I have used this book.  The headphones would have been noticed or disturbed before now.

When these headphones went missing I looked everywhere for them.  They were meaningful to me. I must have looked in my coat pockets and purse 100 times. They were rather pricey and gift from the hubs.

Were the headphones an apport? I believe so. I had asked spirit to please bring these headphones back to me and they did. They just could not have sat on that shelf, on books that have been moved around for a year.

So because I want more proof.  I have asked spirit to please bring back a ring I have been missing for over two decades. It's a gold ring shaped like a shell. I know spirit can do this. So I'm awating my ring.  I do realize it could take some time. I'll post about it when I get it.

Everyday Miracles

Miracles happen every day as a medium.

I love what I do. I really love it. When I talk with a spirit on the other side and they provide me with those little obscure details about their lives that give their loved ones here some peace of mind I'm so happy to have helped them. I'm elated. Facilitating these miracles makes my world go around. It makes all the doubt and ridicule worth it. I love connecting with spirits and feeling their emotions.  I love feeling how much they love their families who are still here.

Our loved ones on the other side are exactly as funny, quirky, smart and loving as we remember them.  When they come through and show me those little details that define their lives it's pure magic, a miracle.  Facilitating those connections fuels me. They keep me going.  I'm thrilled when I am able to serve spirit in this way. When I am able to give people who love each other another visit. I feel the spirit person's emotions and I know how much your loved ones care about you. I literally feel it and often it brings tears to my eyes.

It happened again today. A spirit provided me with that one little detail, that one word that meant so much to her family.  This kind of thing changes people's lives. I'm so honored and blessed that spirit has chosen me to connect with them.

Blessings,
Chloe
