I Had A Personal Reading From a Psychic Medium…

clouds compressedIt’s been a weird month, a very weird month.

Two weeks ago, I attended a ladies night at Midtown Crossing where a psychic medium was there to give five minute readings to guests. Her name is Jess Coleman and she’s a medium at Mind Body Spirit Omaha. My first impression was, “Interesting, she’s wearing pants. I thought she’d be wearing a long flowy skirt and crystals.” But she wasn’t like that image in my head. She was a normal looking girl who was even funny in her nature.

And the reading was… eerie.

She told me that she was channeling my grandmother and was very specific in the things she was channeling. Things like how I just got my hair cut and how we shared a love of Dancing With The Stars. Not the stuff I have shared here on the blog or even on social media. I left feeling a bit blown away. I felt excited to share with others what she said and was more curious than ever.

Then, a week later, I went to see Rebecca Rosen. I had gotten the tickets before the five minute reading the week before so it was just a coincidence to go to two mediums in one week. She’s a psychic medium that’s been on Dr. Phil and Rachel Ray and such. She was at a local theater filled with hundreds of people. I had my husband join me who pointed out that listening to sad, depressing death stories might be the worst date night I have ever planned. And he was right. What exhilarated me about that five minute reading from Jess was missing in the large theater reading. It felt like the medium was fishing for information and although there were occasional “Ah Ha!” moments, in general, it felt like everything was a stretch. I didn’t leave a believer and felt my excitement fading.

So I was quite curious when my mom and I were given the opportunity to get a private long reading from the first medium, Jess – the one who gave me that powerful five minute reading. We were given a chance to do a 30 minute meditation by Amy Malone, a yoga and meditation instructor at the center, prior to the reading. This was fascinating to me. I have never meditated before and can barely shut off my brain to sleep so I was curious how this was going to be.

I loved it. I found it relaxing and a great chance to just let go for a few minutes. To know that I couldn’t solve any child’s problem at that moment, or be interrupted by a phone ringing or a talking doll left on the floor, was wonderful.

And then, a few minutes after meditation, the reading with Jess began.

My mother and I entered in to the reading with absolutely no expectations. We weren’t nervous, we weren’t anxious, we were simply curious.

It started a bit rocky. She talked about things that we couldn’t find a connection to and names that meant nothing to us. She said there were many of our dead loved ones coming through (5-6 people there around her) and it could be confusing. And as the reading continued, things started to connect a bit better and at times, I found her comments eerie again. Not to the magnitude of that first quick reading, but still things she couldn’t find online or know on her own. Things like: ¬†how I wear my grandmother’s wedding ring on my right hand and how I named my daughter after her. She told my mom how there was a family house that was important to my grandfather. All true but still at times a bit vague and general.

But throughout the reading I kept wondering if I was trying to find links because I wanted to or if they really were there. I don’t have the answer to that. I’m not sure I ever will.

So what do I believe? I believe that there are those who can tap into something in the world beyond. I believe they have taken the time to learn and develop that sense. However, I don’t think it is as specific as we wish it was.

Do I think Jess and Rebecca can connect deeper to our loved ones than most of us can? Yes. But do I think they nail all those details, unfortunately not. I have to admit, I feel the closest to my grandmother when it is just me talking to her. Just me feeling her presence around me, and just me knowing that she’s with me. Not because a medium tells me, but because I just know it for myself. Perhaps that’s just me wanting to feel that, but it doesn’t matter. I think that’s why people go to mediums, they just want to feel the love of a lost one. Luckily, I feel her love around me every day.

And that means more to me than anything a medium can tell me.




  1. I felt so relaxed and happy after my private reading. My mother went to a theatre reading with Long Island Medium & it was forced & vague.

    I used to channel my dead father as a toddler & pass on messages to my mother… so there’s that. LOL

  2. Danielle,

    I went through the same pondering. I couldn’t decide if I believed or didn’t, but Jess said so many things that were right on, I decided I choose to believe because sometimes we need reassurance or direction, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I still think there has to be truth to it, especially after what she told you. Best of luck with it!

  3. I am still skeptical. I tried it last fall for the very first time. While I did capture a few gems, I think I could have ended up at the same place with just a conversation with friends.

  4. Ironically, this is the third post about someone’s love for their grandmother today, mine included. Guess, we’re thinking of those women who inspired us today.

    I agree that people go to mediums to feel the love and connection of someone they lost. I’ve only been to one once and it was entertaining. Some things were accurate others vague as you mentioned in your experiences. Like you, I feel the love of those no longer with me all the time. Guess we’re the lucky ones!

  5. I’m not one to buy-into these things, BUT, my sister has had amazing readings, like: When my sister was on her honeymoon she got the first of years of migraines. Decades later, she was at a reading and the medium told her she had been shot in her right temple in a previous life with the same man. He had killed her. My sister never got another headache. Amazing.

  6. So interesting… and I’m curious to try something like this. I am a total skeptic, BUT… I work at a psych hospital and there was a patient once who knew things. I mean… it was one of the weirdest things I’ve ever experienced. I need to blog about that!

  7. I have never had a reading myself, but I am always intrigued when I see it on TV. I always wonder if it’s real and can only imagine how eerie it would be to be on the receiving end.

  8. I am a skeptic by nature but I would definitely be interested in having a reading and seeing what came out of it. The only question I have is how do you find someone who is not a con artist…it would get a little pricey to go from reader to reader. I know a few people who are total believers. I may ask them who they have found and check it out. You have me very curious now!

  9. I believe there are people out there who have connections to things/people that most of us don’t. I also believe there are con artists out there. And it can be hard to know the difference. I love that you feel your grandmother’s connection around you everyday–that’s priceless.

  10. My personal take is that most “psychics” are excellent people readers and can tap into clues that they’re moving in the right direction. And if we want to believe, we’ll fill in the blanks ourselves to convince ourselves that the psychic got it right. That said, I do also think that some people are better able to tap into a special energy spectrum, perhaps, that allows them more knowledge and insight or even the ability to reconnect with souls long gone. My dad and sister are a little “witchy” like that. Not that they’re rolling in Lottery dough, but my sister has a way of checking in on bad days ’cause she “had a feeling” something was up. She also claims to have felt our departed grandfather and great aunt around her house. Maybe. If you believe in basic physics that energy can be neither created nor destroyed, I suppose it’s possible.

  11. I have seen a psychic, not the type that speaks to your lost loved ones but the kind who tells you what will happen in your life, who you will marry, how many children you’ll have, what life cycle you’re in etc. It’s entertaining and fun to think about but after 2-3 of these visits from different psychics several years ago I can now tell you that not one thing they predicted happened. They said I would marry a divorced man because they saw “broken wedding rings”, my husband and I have been married for 20 years. :)

    I saw a Medium last year on a whim and I could not believe the things she told me, I’ve never met this woman or even heard of her so there’s no way she knew anything about me. Although I know there are people out there who aren’t legit, this woman was unbelievable!! And I find dimes all the time and she told me my grandmother was sending them to me to let me know she is with me helping me in my times of trouble. I never mentioned I found dimes or that my grandmother was deceased. SO many things….saw her a 2nd time a year later and she was right on again. She even told me things about my mother in law who had passed 3 yrs ago and was from a foreign country, she knew that. Nobody can tell me this woman was not real! I still think about it everyday.
