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.

(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 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.
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.
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.
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.

I recently signed up for some free psychic/medium Facebook groups so I can do more readings. These are fun and I have done a few readings. Most people post a picture of themselves and ask if anybody gets anything. Most of the time I don't get much just from looking at someone's picture.
If I feel somewhat drawn to a picture I will draw a few tarot cards for them. I will post a picture of the cards I drew and tell them what they mean along with my intuitive interpretation of it. If I feel they have a spirit who wants to talk to them I will tell them what I pick up on. I have only done a few of these so far. I find it hard to connect with people's loved ones on the other side with only a photograph. So far when I have done readings I have been on the phone or in person.
Sometimes rather than post a picture of themselves, a person posts a picture of a loved one who has passed on. I usually don't feel much connection with a photograph. I just don't feel the energy. I need to be in the living persons energy to make the connection. But there was a picture of a deceased young man to whom I was drawn. He popped into my mind a few times and I saw the purple flashes. So I figured he wanted me to read. I wrote some things down and posted it to the group. I hope the information I provided gives the person who is still living some healing and peace. I will let you know if I get any feedback.
