What A Medium Wants You To Know
I was driving my friend, Helen, around the North Shore of Oahu to see the tropical sights a couple of years ago. As I maneuvered the twisty roads, she casually said, “Oh, your grandfather on your mother’s side just popped in.”
That might sound quite startling, but Helen is an energy healer and a trained medium. Her healing skills have had a profound impact on my life, chronicled in my book, Ever-Flowing Streams: Christ, Reiki, Reincarnation and Me. In a recent Skype call, we primarily discussed her work as a medium and what she would like people to understand about spirit communication. I asked her why she developed her mediumship skills.
She said, “I’ve found it is a way for me to use my gifts to offer people peace. A woman told me, I can get a good night’s sleep. Often people get stuck in their grief, guilt or unforgiveness. A session of spirit communication can offer a release and path to healing.”
Helen has encountered spirits who have passed over in many ways–including, illness, accidents, abortion, and suicide. Departed loved ones often convey similar messages–they are doing well. They’re not holding grudges. Aborted children might present themselves as a young person, usually to say they are fine and still a part of the family. Most abortions are not done lightly. Circumstances can seem impossible to a pregnant woman facing the responsibility of raising a child. Women often carry abortion guilt for the rest of their lives. Communication from that child’s spirit can bring immense healing.
One thing Helen emphasizes on her website, Ripples of Light, is not to give her information about potential spirits who may come through. She likes to have a clean mental slate.
“Clients are very vulnerable and often nervous when they come for a reading. They begin spouting information just as I am tuning into the situation. I always advise, hold on for a few minutes and see what messages come through first! It is a stronger validation if I can tell them their father died in bed with a heart condition, than if they tell me and I agree!
Spirit communication is not like talking on the phone. It is a language of images, symbols, and impressions. A medium may sense the person in spirit’s feelings, rather than getting a verbal communication. Mediums rely on a variety of senses, and it can vary depending on the medium’s strengths and the person in spirit. A medium can hear, see, smell/taste, know, or feel the message. If your Dad wasn’t a chatty soul in life, chances are that he will give his messages through a sense of knowing, or by sending pictures. I encourage people to be patient in a mediumship session, and let it unfold.
It’s also best not to come with with specific expectations. There’s no guarantee that your grandmother will show up and tell you where she hid the family jewels. Spirit communication, like energy healing, is free flowing and often unexpected. Usually, it is just what the clients need to hear, whether they understand it or not at the time.”
Helen is also an animal communicator, both with the living and the dead. Here is one testimonial from Ripples of Light:
“One of our cats went missing and we were all devastated, we put up posters all over the town and we searched everywhere… But no Mr. Tibs… Helen called me and broke the news that he would not be coming home as he had contacted her spiritually to ask her to tell me he was in cat heaven and was okay. After lots of tears, I asked Helen where his body was and even though she said that where his body was wasn’t as important as where his soul was, I needed to know, as I needed closure. Helen described to me where to find him (we live in England!) so off my hubby went and within 10 minutes he called me to say he had found him exactly where Helen has said he was. We were then able to bring him home and make him a grave. Helen has an amazing gift.” AT, Lincolnshire, England
To hone her craft, Helen has taken courses from from several of the most renowned spirit communication teachers in the world, including James Van Praagh. She is a Reiki master and offers energy healing through her website, Ripples of Light. Though she was born in Leicester, England, she is an American citizen and has lived in Oklahoma for two decades. Her accent and demeanor still resonate her English roots. Through the years, I’ve come to think of her as my magical Mary Poppins.
On that ride along the North Shore, my grandfather shared information about my mother that was very healing to me. The greatest gift is knowing my family is still with me. I am never alone.
Helen offers in-person sessions in Moore, Oklahoma and is trained in platform mediumship readings for groups. She is reaching beyond the Oklahoma borders through Ripples of Light website.
