Why I believe in mediums, psychics, and the other side.

I’m a skeptic, especially when it comes to “the other side” or anything regarding communicating with spirits. So when my mom asked me to go see a medium with her a few years ago after my sister passed away I gave her a look of “have you lost your mind??” and then realized that she didn’t lose her mind, her heart was shattered and she was looking for some sort of comfort. So I told her I would go with her for support.

On the drive there I was the acting adult and told my mom “don’t feed her information” and “make sure she doesn’t take you for a fool and scam you for more money”. As I said… I was skeptic.

When we got to the mediums “office” (by office I mean home), we met a younger lady. She seemed normal. No scarves wrapped around her head or Spencer Pratt gems hanging anywhere (click on that link… its worth it) She just had a table and some candles burning. She welcomed us in and said that my sister “wasn’t there yet” but she knew we were coming because she had been around the medium all day. I rolled my eyes and sat down. The three of us (medium, me and my mom) just started talking about how it would work and mid-sentence I swear I felt shivers like I have never felt before. It felt like a head to toe ZING!! It was to the point where I sat straight up in my chair and looked right at my mom. She said “did you feel that???”
The medium said “your sister is here”.

(To this day I have only felt shivers like that once more, it was when I was driving and I honestly burst into tears after).

Still not convinced that the medium was for real (she could have had some A/C blasting or something… people are tricky) I waited for her to start talking. My mom asked a few questions and the answers seemed pretty general and nothing that made me really believe in it.

Not until my mom said “did she like what we did for her funeral?” (my poor mom… so distraught and confused… she didn’t know what to ask). The medium replied and said “yes, she was there in spirit, you know she was**. She’s telling me everything was beautiful and that she really liked her… socks??” The medium sort of laughed at that point thinking that it was a ridiculous thing to say but my mom and I knew why… When we had to choose the clothing for her to wear we chose very simple black clothes but we secretly chose bright rainbow colored toes socks. No one in the entire world knew that except me, my mom and whoever dressed her at the funeral home.

** We knew she was there because the power went out at the moment everything started to get too serious. And during the funeral it was the loudest thunderstorm ever, it actually sounded like they were moving furniture in the room next to us, as soon as the funeral was over, I mean the SECOND it was over, when the car got around the corner, the rain stopped and the brightest rainbow came across the sky**

The medium also said “she’s showing me a cross necklace with a stone in the middle” (exactly what she wore)… “and a ring…” when she said ring she pointed to her middle finger on her left hand. But not where you would wear a ring normally, it was half way down her finger before the knuckle.

At the funeral when my family and I had our last moments with her before closing the casket my little sister took her hand and put a ring on it. It was too small to fit so it sat half way down her finger… on the ring finger of her left hand.

Again, no one except my family knew that.

That’s when I believed.

She told us some other very personal things. None of which I could really explain. When my mom and I left, we didn’t speak to each other on the drive home. We both just sat there in deep in thought. The only way I can describe the experience is creepy, yet comforting.

I have had some other eerie moments over the years when I just knew deep down it was my sister letting me know she’s there. It truly helps me to know she’s always watching out for me.

We're sceptical because we know there are so many scammers out there ready to take your money and rip you off.

So when we come across someone that seems to truly have a "gift" then it freaks us out.

There's nothing wrong with being sceptical as long as we don't brand everyone with that brush.

I believe some people have the ability, it's also up to us how we interpret the info we get given.

And remember, if they tell you you're going to die, get up and walk out. "Real" psychics don't do that.

Stange, they just had an ad on the morning show I'm watching and there's a psychic coming up.

That's CRAZY! I haven't had an experience with a medium, but I did share my recent experiences with my psychic, and the happenings right after seeing her.

Life's a funny thing, eh?

that is insane. i don't know how i'd respond to something like that. i've always been a skeptic too but hearing you talk about these things i feel like there must be something to it. regardless, im glad it was a comforting experience for you and hopefully made you feel at ease with such a traumatizing situation.

I just started crying. It's amazing... amazing... amazing. I'm not much of a believer in anything, but I do believe in people sending us messages.

Wow, I got incredible shivers when reading this. Thanks for sharing this, it's so interesting.

Tim went to one once, with his ex-girlfriend, and the psychic told them they weren't going to last long as a couple and they broke up on the drive home! Random, but funny.

Wow!! I have been a believer, or realize that there is something out there that we can't explain. Ghost hanging around and what not. But I have never had that kind of experience. That is amazing!! Thanks for sharing
