I believe my family has remained open to their intuition and connection to Spirit most of their lives. I also believe everyone has the ability to focus in on their intuition and further develop it. Allow me to share my story about my family and our experiences.
My Grandmother, and parents all have had psychic medium experiences throughout their lives. It wasn’t discussed outside of our home very often or amongst ourselves. I think it was just understood.
My Father had several impactful experiences in his life in which he had to acknowledge his strong intution. My Mother occasionally spoke about her Grandmother coming to her bedside minutes after her passing to speak with her.
There were other experiences my Mother had from the time she was very young to present day. She just knew things about people she met before getting to know them. Furthermore, she saw Spirits in her home, on the road, in other people’s homes, etc. Seeing and or interacting with Spirit continues to be a regular occurrence for her.
My siblings also have psychic mediumistic abilities. We all had this innate ability to “read” people we spoke with or met before getting to know them. When I was about 7, my family and I were living in St. Louis in a home with Spirit. It was then that I have my earliest memories of seeing and feeling Spirit. Feeling the presence of Spirit while living in there was a daily occurence for my siblings and myself. We now see this openess to the Spirit realm continue on with some of our children and grandchildren.
During my childhood, I was often told by others outside of my immediate family that I was very sensitive by nature – almost too sensitive. During my life I often felt what others felt. Having a predictive feeling about others was also normal for me. I knew what others felt and could anticipate their reaction before it occurred. At times, I knew what they were thinking a certain way. Honestly, my siblings and I grew up thinking these experiences weren't anything out of the norm.
As I matured, I experienced tremendous inner-knowing of the passing of loved ones. After loved ones passed, I heard them talking to me. I shrugged it off as my “normal” or being creative.
Friends would always come to me with their problems. Somehow, they seemed to feel better after talking with me. As an adult, I often felt drained helping friends work through their problems. As a social worker, I’d often come home from work exhausted.
During my more traditional careers, I always had an inner knowing and feeling about circumstances, situations and next steps on the job and with co-workers, clients and colleagues. This is where my abilities stood out to me most on a day-to-day basis at that time. I was often leaned upon others to give a “gut check” on specific situations and next steps when working with clients. I found myself predicting outcomes or decisions and finishing the sentences of my team members.
I'd also unknowingly been considered ‘spiritual’ by close friends. Most intriguing for myself, was the deep connection with something greater than myself without understanding why.
In 2009, my son was severely injured in Iraq while serving in the US Army. One night, after one of his numerous surgeries, I woke up with this gut-wrenching feeling and knew we had to go to him. I experienced a physical pull toward Washington D.C. where he was hospitalized. Asking my husband to ‘trust my intuition’, we rushed to his bedside. While in route, we received a call that our son was found unresponsive and near death.
This wasn't the first time that my intuition had been validated. Throughout my life I often felt or could look at someone and know they were going to pass. It was even stronger with my family members and friends. Once my father-n-law passed, I began having full on morning conversations with him as I entered his room to open the curtains each day. Hours before another family member passed, I heard and felt that I should go to him. These feelings were relentless. By early morning, I received notice that he had passed away in the middle of the night.
I still found myself denying my abilities and continued to keep these experiences to myself for quite some time. I assumed they were normal. Over the years I finally came to understand that these experiences were nudges from Spirit.
As my intuition intensified and the validations strengthened, I was no longer able to suppress them and finally realized it was time for me to make a choice.
These experiences that overwhelmed my senses weren't stopping, and I had to make the decision. Would I embrace my abilities to help others in a form of healing or continue to ignore them? As I was always drawn to helping others, I discovered a deeper level of service than ever before. I decided to focus more on these abilities and explore how I could use them to help others. I began my spiritual journey which let me initially to Tarot and later to Mediumship which feels most like “Home” for me.
I continued my evidential mediumship development under the guidance of International Psychic Medium, Lindsay Marino, where I became a Certified Evidential Psychic Medium. I now provide in person readings in the St. Louis areas and online any where in the world!
Through my formal training, I developed my abilities to receive messages and information from Spirit.
Using all six senses of feeling, knowing, seeing, hearing, tasting and smelling provides me with multiple channels of communication and interpretation to help provide each message from Spirit to my client. My goal is to always provide Spirit's messages in the way they want it delivered to their Loved One. By reading in this way, I am honoring Spirit and it leads the client to healing which can include forgiveness, love, closure, a sense of peace, and sometimes humor. I am always humbled by the trust and love given to me by both Spirit and my clients. Thank you for trusting me to be your messenger!
With Love, Susan
