FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. What is a Psychic?
A psychic is a person who is very much in tune with his or her “sixth sense” also known as intuition. Everyone has the ability to use their sixth sense just as much as they use their other five senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch. Do you ever have something happen that you knew was going to happen, and yet you couldn’t explain why? That is your intuition at work. The more you get in touch with this important and very real sense, the more interesting and exciting your life becomes.
Q. What is a Medium?
The best answer I found for this question is from James Van Praagh:
“A medium is a psychic who has fine-tuned his or her extrasensory perception and can interface with the spirits in other dimensions. They are able to feel and/or hear thoughts, voices or mental impressions from the spirit world. A medium is able to become completely receptive to the higher frequency or energies on which spirit people vibrate.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself! He goes on to explain the various types of ways a medium can connect with spirit – sometimes known as the “Clairs”:
Clairsentience – (clear feeling) Perceive information by way of strong, emphatic feelings and emotions from spirit.
Clairvoyant - (clear vision) See with the mind’s eye objects, colors, symbols, people, spirits or scenes. These pictures are not visible to the naked eye and usually flash into the medium’s mind.
Clairaudient – (clear hearing) Perceive sounds or words from sources broadcasting from a spiritual realm.
Clairempathy – (clear emotion) Sense or “feel” within one’s self the attitude or emotions of another person.
Clairgustance – (clear tasting”) Discern the essence of a substance through taste from spirit.
Clairscent - (clear smelling). Smell a fragrance or odor coming from the spirit.
Clairtangency – (clear touching) This ability is commonly known as Psychometry. By holding an object or touching an area you perceive information about the article or its owner or history through the palms of your hands.
Q. What gifts do you use to connect to spirit, Lisa?
I am humbled to say that I use all of the “Clairs” to do my work. However the ones I rely on most are: Clairsentience – (clear feeling); Clairaudient – (clear hearing); and Clairempathy – (clear emotion).
At times the connection to spirit is so strong that I have actually manifested physical aspects (chest pains, coughs, Parkinson’s tremors) of a person that has crossed over or even to someone that is still alive. I also usually feel the intense love that pours through my soul to YOU from your angels and other loved ones in spirit. It is difficult to explain to people how, at times, this work can be quite emotionally and physically draining.
Q. Can anyone connect to spirit?
YES! I feel that these gifts are available to everyone, it’s just a matter of how much time, effort and concentration you put into developing them that would ultimately determine your ability. Looking back I realize that these gifts were always available for me, but due to my religious upbringing, and my lack of awareness to this direct connection, I didn’t realize what I was missing out on. It wasn’t until 2002, when I had my first angel reading, that I woke up and started honing these skills. Since then I have spent a considerable amount of time, money and effort devoting myself to move forward in this field. The thing is I love it so much that I can never see a day that I wouldn’t continue to invest in my higher education and development. I’m always striving to be the best for my clients!
Q. How did you discover your gift?
I have spent the last several years writing a book about how this all unfolded for me. It will be published soon and I hope YOU will be interested in buying a copy to find the answer to this question.
Q. How accurate are you?
I’ve found that every reading is perfect every time. Whatever message you need, you will get. Am I right 100% of the time? Of course not – is anyone 100% right all the time? No. I do however give 100% of myself for each reading. I am continually blown away by the details of what spirit gives me to share. Whether it’s a person’s peculiar color or style of hair, the type of work they did or a specific childhood memory that only you would know – it’s usually detailed and confirming. Working with spirit is a wonderfully expanding field. You many not always understand some of the information that I bring through, but that does not mean that it is wrong. I can’t tell you how many times my clients will call me after a reading (even several months later!) to tell me that what didn’t make sense to them at the time of the reading, turned out to be confirmed by someone else, or it just hadn’t happened yet.
Q. Can you predict my future?
No. You have free will, which means anything I tell you can be changed by your actions immediately after the reading. The angels will not tell you what to do or what your future is either. They are happy to discuss the various possibilities, but in my experience they will not tell you what’s going to happen. They do however, love to talk about your options and discuss the pros and cons with you. They are excellent advisors.
Q. Can I talk to my passed away loved ones or my angels?
Yes. This is one aspect of my gift, which I’ve found differs from some other mediums. Several of the mediums, that I’m aware of, offer you validating information, which allows you to know that they are actually channeling your passed away loved one. Many times they may even give you a message from your spirit; however from what I’ve experienced these mediums don’t provide the opportunity for you to have a conversation with your loved one.
During one of my sessions, once I’ve confirmed that we’ve made a connection to your loved one, through validating information, I can usually facilitate a conversation because of my strong open channel. The way I talk can change, the words I use are different and phrases that you’re loved one would use can and have come through for me. In regard to talking to your angels, I have a very strong connection to them, and they actually prefer you talking directly to them, rather that me just talking to you. Please come prepared with a list of questions, as they are most interested in discussing what’s important to you.
Q. What should I do to prepare for a reading?
As per above, please bring a list of questions you’d like to ask. This process is interactive, not passive. The more tuned into the session you are, the more you will get out of it. The next thing I would suggest it to show up for you reading relaxed and with an open mind. The more open and relaxed you are the easier it is to connect to you, your angels and loved ones. Skepticism is part of our cultural thinking – do you know how long it took me to believe that I could do this? I’m still blown away by what come through in my readings. With that said, if you come with a closed heart, mind and a “prove it to me attitude” I can almost guarantee you that you won’t be satisfied with the reading. If you have a strong opinion about anything, typically there is NOTHING that anyone could say to you that would change your mind. I’m here to share my gift with you, not to prove anything. I’ve also found that if you are extremely nervous, upset or angry the spirits will pull back, as they don’t want to upset you further.
As a suggestion: As you are preparing for the reading, either before you drive to meet me in person, or if we are about to begin our phone or Skype session take a few deep breaths. Then if you’d like you can say a little prayer. For example: “Dear (God, Universe, Source Energy, your angels, your passed away loved ones or whomever else you’d like) please allow any and all messages that come through to me today be brought forth for the highest and greatest good for all involved. Amen.”
Q. Can I tape the session?
Yes, you may tape your own session with your own device. At this time I do not provide this service. Due to privacy issues I request that group sessions are not to be taped.
