FAQ ~ Spiritual Clearings
- Is there a difference between clearings done in person versus long distance?
The only difference between on-site clearings versus long distance clearings is the communication between myself and the living people. In a long distance clearing we will be speaking on the phone instead of in-person.The same amount of time will be spent over the phone as it would have if I was at your location. Knowing how to function effectively in the in-between, where unsettled spirits reside, is the key to clearing land, people, and buildings. Distance does not stop me from working in the in-between. In the end, my goal is to help. Distance does not limit me. I have performed clearings for people all over the world. Clearings via Skype are available as well.
- Why does my home (or other location) seem haunted?
I find the spirits and energies that affect a location are either there when you move in, drawn in by people, or active because of construction or major changes taking place. There is a variety of reasons why a spirit might be haunting a location or person and I will do my best to share with you that information when we meet.
- Am I cursed?
The quick and easy answer to that question is NO. Telling someone that they are cursed is a popular scam artist technique done by many “psychics” out there. First they tell you that you are cursed, then they ask you to pay hundreds of dollars to remove the curse. Sadly, many people have fallen victim to this type of scam. Please know that giving an energy worker hundreds and hundreds of dollars is most likely not in your best interest!
- Does a spirit and energy clearing work every time?
I have done hundreds of clearings and have found my success rate to be 99%. Of the many homes and businesses I have cleared in the past, only one location required me to come back and clear again. Once you understand how energy truly works, it is easy to clear it.
- What should I expect from a spirit and energy clearing?
During the process, I will start by evaluating the energetics and identifying the source (spirits) and reasons behind the imbalance. I will then clear the area, cross lost and conflicted spirits over to the otherside and sweep out negative residual energy. After a home clearing, you will find the members of the household are less irritable, sleep better at night, feel less stressed, and feel more safe. A clearing of a person, will help them regain happiness, strength, and a sense of peace. In a business, you will find the people who work there to have the same positive effects plus the business will be in a better energetic position. Many times this results in an increase in business and profit.
- How long does it take to do a spiritual clearing?
Most spiritual clearings take approximately one hour. Occasionally this can vary. Please contact me to inquire about estimated times of larger spaces and/or more severe cases of Detachment (exorcism).
- Is it possible for my loved one to be stuck in the in-between and not cross over?
Yes, but it isn’t as bad as it may sound. The in-between is a place each of us experience when we transition to the otherside. Some people choose to linger in the in-between while others cross over quickly. Some struggle with their death transition and remain in the in-between until they can process what they need to process in order to cross over. I work with those spirits to help them complete their transition. So, if your loved one is still in the in-between and has not crossed yet, there is most likely a good reason. I work to help them along so they can finish their transition and return to your side in a spiritual, peaceful state.
- Will you be able to help my loved ones if they have recently passed away?
Yes, I am able to connect with spirits immediately after their death. I see spirits who have crossed into the light and those who are still lingering in the in-between. Information received shortly after death typically is about what they wished they would have said. Things they feel are not yet complete, and expressions of care for those left behind. It is important we all complete our transition after death. Lingering within the in-between is not helpful for the spirit or those left behind. This aspect of my job is one that I truly take to heart. I am honored to help.
- What signs should I look for that my home or business is haunted?
There are obvious signs and not-so-obvious signs. Apparitions, unexplained sounds, major temperature changes, and furniture or doors moving are all obvious signs. Not-so-obvious signs include nightmares, odd behaviors from pets, unexplained personality changes in living people, email and phone difficulties. If you are experiencing only one of these signs, chances are you are not dealing with a haunting. If you are experiencing multiple signs, you may be experiencing a haunting.
- Can’t the homeowner just tell the spirits to go away?
Yes, in some cases it does work and it is always a good place to start before contacting a specialist. But, asking a spirit to leave is not as affective as assisting them in crossing over and completing their spiritual transition. “Banishing” a spirit leaves the door open for them to return and fall back into the haunting pattern they started earlier. Crossing a spirit over means they will lose the need to affect people negatively and will move forward on their spiritual journey. Everyone deserves to go home, even negative spirits.
- Can you really do a spiritual clearing from a distance (over the phone)?
Yes. Once one understands how the in-between works, it is just as effective to do a clearing from a distance than it is to physically stand in the location itself. The in-between is not limited by space. A phone connection during the clearing assists the process so expect to spend the entire clearing time with me on the phone. First I will make sure that I am energetically at the location that needs clearing and once there, I will go through the standard clearing process.
- Do you perform exorcisms?
Yes, but I prefer to use the term “Detachment”. Due to the intense nature of Detachments, please contact me directly to discuss the process.
FAQ ~ Transition Guide
- My loved one is dying. Is there something I can do to help them spiritually?
Absolutely. The process of dying is a sacred time and one that provides beautiful opportunities. Deeper connection, release of the more petty aspects of life, and priceless moments are found on the path to death. Our culture has looked upon death as something to be feared when, in reality, it is a beautiful journey home. Acknowledge everything that your loved one speaks of. If they tell you their deceased mother is in the room, ask them about her. Do not ignore your loved one’s connection and communication with the otherside. It is part of the transition and is something that can provide comfort. A beautiful example of this transition can be found in Chapter 27 (Carol’s Death) in Cracking Open: Adventures of a Reluctant Medium. I am available for consultations in regards to the passing of your loved one. For more information visit the Transitional Guide page.
- Will the work you do as a Transition Guide ease the families emotional pain?
Yes and no. In a positive way, it will provide you with the comfort of knowing your loved one is alright and at peace after they have passed. However, the grief will still be there. It is a natural part of the death process and actually should be experienced. The emotional pain one feels for the loss of someone they love is a tribute to their connection. It is an honoring of that soul and what they brought to your life. In many ways grief can be a beautiful statement.
- Are you able to do Transitional work from a distance?
Yes. Since Transitional work is done at a higher level, distance is not an issue.
- What do you believe the afterlife is like?
I no longer fear death and I work hard to understand the other dimensions and how they play into our everyday lives. It is my belief there is no one particular place called Heaven or Hell. I believe all aspects of the concepts of Heaven and Hell are right here on earth. After we pass, we go to the “dimension” that many people call the otherside. It is all around us, and we are within it. Earth is a place for spiritual beings to come and challenge themselves emotionally, physically and spiritually. I do feel that spirits have emotions and feelings on the otherside, with earth being a pit stop for them to really focus on particular experiences and growth. With that said, I absolutely believe in reincarnation and I see reincarnation as “just another experience.” Everything is vibrating, science has recognized that. Our vibrational levels as human beings are slower and hold us to this planet while spirit’s energy is vibrating at a much faster speed. All around you are beings with vibrational levels much higher than ours, thus you cannot see them with the naked eye.
- What role do our loved ones play on the otherside?
Loved ones are a part of your collective group in the afterlife. I like to think of them as a group of friends. Imagine you are on the otherside with this group of friends and you say, “Hey guys… I’m heading to Earth to live out some experiences.” Your friends will each take different roles in the life you are going to live on Earth. Some come to Earth and meet up with you exactly when you need them. Others stay behind and guide you from the otherside. Still others come to here, know you on Earth, die, and then guide you from the otherside as well. Ever meet someone and felt like you’ve known them forever?
FAQ ~ General
- Do you receive negative information?
No. If there is information that needs to be passed to you of any negative nature it will be given to you in such a way that it helps your life, not hinders it. Your guides and loved ones care about you. There is no reason for them to tell you something horrible just so you can worry about it. They will be honest with you and provide you with what you need to know, but they will not share information you cannot handle or leave you without a path to fix the issue. If you have met with a psychic and they have told you something scary and/or that you are cursed (and possibly need to buy expensively “blessed” candles to break the curse) then you have been scammed.
- Do you channel?
There are many definitions of channeling. I am not a physical channel. When I read a spirit’s energy, they are standing in front of me. At no time do they step “into” me. It is very much like having a conversation with anyone else. When I read, my energy is vibrating high enough to directly communicate with those on the otherside. As I raise my vibrational level, spirits on the otherside lower their vibrational level, creating a meeting ground where information is exchanged.
- What are Spirit Guides?
Spirit Guides are spiritual beings that come in many forms. Animals, human, loved ones or strangers. They “sign up” to guide you for various reasons. Some spirit guides are there throughout your lifetime, like a friend watching over you to guide you on your path. Other spirit guides come into your life when you reach a particular landmark, typically a difficult point. They work with you in a supportive manner, and stay with you until you’ve worked through what you need to work through. Messages I receive from those types of spirit guides are usually very strong because it is their goal to help you overcome the struggles in your life. Spirit Guides can be, but aren’t necessarily, loved ones.
- Why is it important for children who are psychic to hone their abilities?
Children who are intuitive tend to be very sensitive. A young person’s years can be difficult to navigate. Adding intuitive abilities piles on another layer to the chaos, sometimes results in fear. This however can be smoothed out with development and understanding. It is important to support children and teens who have intuitive abilities. By working together with them, they are able to learn not only how to use their abilities positively, but also how to protect themselves spiritually. By teaching them basic management of their intuition, you ease their anxiety, regain their focus in this world, and help them avoid negative energies. I love children and I enjoy working with them in the awareness, understanding, and development of their unique intuitive abilities. If you have a teen who is struggling with their abilities, consider a Mentor Session to help them grasp what is happening to them and also to assist them in taking control over their situation.
- What are your religious beliefs?
I was raised Christian and have since found interest in some of the teachings of Buddhism. I still, however, follow the teachings of Jesus. Probably because they are so true, universal, and simply make sense. Also because he is an incredible man and there is much to learn from him. I make a point not to settle in to only one belief system, thus keeping myself open to possibilities. In the end, I am open to all different religions and I am not concerned with who is right and who is wrong. It is my belief that everyone eventually gets to the top of the mountain. It is not a special place reserved for a select few. When it comes to climbing the mountain, people simply start in different places with many paths leading to the top. Embrace your path and make it amazing!
