What happens in a Spirit reading?

These are my notes for anyone attending a Spirit reading with me. I’m posting them as it’s not always easy to work out how to find a reliable Psychic or Medium. The best recommendation tends to be from a person you know who has had a reading from that particular Psychic or Medium. Or you might have had the chance to see the person do some work in public for example in a Spiritualist church, at a Mind, Body, Spirit fayre or in their own show.

If you want to have a reading with a particular Psychic or Medium you can ask if they have any guidelines or written explanation of what will happen in the reading. You can also ask if there is anyone they have had a reading with who you can speak to to get a recommendation. Also ask what they do if you feel your reading is not satisfactory. And finally, although this is not a guarantee, you can also ask if they belong to an appropriate association.  There are very many excellent Psychics & Mediums all over the world so do your homework. Then go along with an open mind & enjoy your reading.

“If you are thinking of having a sitting but feel too afraid don’t worry. Annie is excellent & understands you can be apprehensive, but makes you totally at ease.” Judith

Private Sittings are a way for a Medium like me to use Spirit Communication and bring forward the Spirits who take an interest in your life. You can see demonstrations of this type of communication at Spiritualist Churches or during Evenings of Clairvoyance. The only difference in what happens, when you come to see me personally, is that your Sitting will be held in private.

Please note that when contacting Spirit there can be no  guarantee of  who will come forward to work with a Medium. Spirit Communication is experimental – the Medium makes herself open to the Spirit World and has no say over who will be waiting to speak to you. Most people feel they have had a positive experience in attending a Sitting but if you feel you have not please say so.

“I had a private reading with Annie. I thought the experience was brilliant. People came through & gave messages. A lot were very relevant. I felt this was a very positive reading and quite emotional. I would recommend this to anyone.” Jo

Quite a few people think that a Sitting will be like having someone tell your fortune or your future. That is not possible! My job is to give you evidence that life continues beyond death. By doing that I can also pass on messages from the people who cared for you when they were alive. They will not pass on anything to worry or upset you but they do want you to know that they still care and want to be of assistance to you.

“It made me feel better knowing I could contact loved ones on the other side” Katie

So that you can be clear that the contact is from the Spirit World I prefer not to know anything about you before you come for a Sitting. Usually all I know is your name! The Spirits who bring their messages tell me what they wish me to pass on  – and only that. They will respect your privacy as they would have done in life. I don’t need to know details to  communicate what they would like you to know about the situations affecting your life. Also, working in this way, Mediums very rarely remember what has been discussed in a message. If you have any concerns about confidentiality please let me know.

“I really wanted my Dad to come through but now I understand why he can’t do just yet. Having my Grandma explain about how the Spirit World works & passing on his message was a special experience.” Louise

You can help your Sitting go well. Keep an open mind and send your thoughts out to all who know you in the Spirit World (and some of these may be people you only knew briefly or family members who actually passed before you were born!). Ask them to come to speak to you. Be honest if you can’t understand anything I say or describe. Spirit are only too happy to give more details.

Finally, it may seem strange that during the Sitting it helps me if you only tell me “Yes”, “No”, “Don’t Know” or “Maybe”. Since Spirit want to do the talking you need to leave the Sitting knowing that I have not given you back information you have just given to me.  Afterwards I will be only too happy to discuss any confirmation of what I’ve said on behalf of Spirit.
