Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Reading?
Are telephone readings as effective as in person?
Yes, telephone readings are equally effective. I have offered phone sessions since I began doing professional readings over 15 years ago. This was necessary to meet the needs of clients who simply lived too far away to schedule in person. I have clients all over the globe and adapt scheduling for all time zones. Until recently I also had a private office for those clients that preferred in-person sessions. I have since given up that office space and only offer Phone, Skype and Zoom sessions.
Can I record my session?
Yes, not only do I allow it I HIGHLY recommend it!!
There are many useful apps that can record your phone calls while using your cell phone simultaneously. Call Recorder iCall is one that is available and from what I hear has good reviews. Again, please note that although I do not provide recordings, I do encourage them. So much valuable information can come through during your session. Having a recording, in my opinion, is better than taking notes because it allows you to be fully present during your reading. Most clients enjoy having the opportunity to listen to their sessions again. I often have clients reach out to me later expressing the value of having their recording to look back on.
Can I ask questions during my session?
Yes, most definitely. I suggest you write down any questions you know you want to ask. This way when it comes to the time to ask questions you don’t forget. I like to bring through much of the information first because I feel it is more validating to you the client when spirit answers your questions before you have to ask. Having the list prevents the frustration of getting home and saying…”Bummer, I forgot to ask her that!
I am concerned about how having a session with you would conflict with my religious beliefs.
I completely understand and respect this question. Being raised a Presbyterian with Christian beliefs, I have always held a close connection and relationship with God. My suggestion would be to pray about it. If you were guided to this website there obviously is something nudging your spirit. Have as many talks with God/Source as you need until you feel certain of your decision. I will always be here if and when you are ready to schedule. Also, keep in mind that the voice of God/Source is loving and kind even when telling you something you don’t want to hear. If what you are struggling with feels or sounds fearful or anxious than that is your ego. Pray to remove all fear and anxiety and to bring you clarity. I can honestly say that all of my work is God-centered, faith-filled and I always have your best interest at heart.
How often can I have a reading?
Depending on my client’s needs, that varies. The goal is always to empower my clients to NOT NEED me, but to ensure them that if and when they do need me, I am here. I am not the Source of their healing. I am just an instrument and vessel of divine communication. I remind my clients that we all have access to this divine communication and I encourage them to foster and strengthen their own abilities to help them maintain a strong connection and sense of support. We all have times when we are in need of clarity or guidance and when those moments arise for you, it is my honor to be of service to you.
One-on-One Coaching clients will obviously work with me more frequently whereas I may connect with a mediumship client one time and that is all. Other clients prefer to check in several times throughout the year or gift themselves with sessions when they are feeling the need to be in the receptive mode.
How exactly do you communicate with someone who has passed over?
I receive my information through my intuitive gifts of clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentience (clear feeling) and claircognizance (clear knowing). God, the angels, and spirit communicate with me through these senses. Sometimes the information is crystal clear and sometimes it is like putting the pieces of a puzzle together one at a time. They use symbols and even memories of my own experiences to get me to communicate their messages.
How long should I wait to see a medium after my loved one has passed?
This is a very good question and a tricky one to answer. Personally, I think one should wait a minimum of two to three months to schedule an appointment with me after the passing of a loved one. For many, that may not be long enough. Obviously, I cannot control when someone schedules and there have been many times that I have had sessions with people whose loved one had passed away very recently. Most of those sessions turned out completely fine but there have been the few occasions where it would have benefitted the client to wait. Mediumship sessions cannot replace grief but it can help reassure that our loved ones are still very connected to us in spirit and validate that love never dies.
What if I'm a skeptic?
What does Heather want you to know?
It is my goal that my time with you be healing and empowering to your own spirit. I encourage you to look at this time as an investment in yourself. All of my sessions are opened with prayer to create the most sacred and loving space. If you have never experienced a reading before, it is normal to experience a little nervousness or anxiousness prior to the session. If you have any questions about the process itself, we will discuss that before your session begins to make sure you feel completely at ease.
Are you looking for answers to your questions?
If you have specific questions you are hoping to be answered, I suggest you make a list to remember them. I open up the session first because much of the time your angels and deceased loved ones address these things before you have to ask. However , when it comes to the time for you to ask your questions, you may have processed so much information already that it may be hard to remember the questions you wanted to ask. This time is when your list will come in handy.
What do I do before my session begins?
- If you are having a phone/Zoom session, make sure you are in a quiet room away from distractions. Create a sacred space for you to have this experience.
- Set your intentions in advance of what you are hoping to gain from your session or who you are hoping to connect with. Our intentions are like a formal invitation to heaven and very powerful.
- Pray. Prayer is a wonderful vessel of surrendering. Surrender yourself to the process and trust that exactly what you are needing is what will be delivered.
- Open your heart to receive.
- Center yourself in LOVE and release all fear.
What happens during my session?
Years ago, when God guided me to begin this work, I asked Him to always be in charge. I asked that He always send me those people I was meant to work with and let every session be healing and effective for my clients. You see, I just surrender myself to be of love and service. I open myself up to be the channel — the voice of heaven per se.
As we make this divine connection together, you can expect that I will give my all to this experience and that I trust, as I always have, that exactly what your soul is needing will be presented to you.
During Your Reading …
- Relax & Breathe. Sometimes I find that my clients are unknowingly holding their breath in anticipation. Take a few deep breaths and relax.
- Hold loving intentions for yourself and the process. Validate the information you are receiving. A simple “yes,” or “I can validate that,” or “I understand” will do. If you do not understand the information, it is ok. Just let me know so that I can try and get additional clarification from the angels and spirit.
- Take notes of any information that does not make sense. It may make perfect sense in the future.
- Trust. Trust that the connections you will be making and the information you will be receiving are for your highest good.
What should I anticipate after my session?
While your reading is a wonderful opportunity for your soul, it can sometimes be emotional, and you usually receive so much information that it can be a lot to process. It is important to set aside some time after your session.
Please give yourself ample time to let the information sink in from your reading. It’s the perfect time to strengthen spiritual practices already in place or create new ones that will help to illuminate your path. Your loved ones and spiritual team have a great desire to support you and hope that you embrace the messages you received and all of the spiritual help available to you. I encourage you to be committed to make connections on your own and remember to ask for help.
It is normal to experience some of the following after a session:
- “Aha” Moments … Understanding information that was not understood during the session.
- A desire to connect more deeply with God and your Spiritual Team.
- Feeling the love, guidance, and support from heaven.
- Receive additional signs and validations of information presented during your session.
- Feeling a stronger sense or connection to your own spirit.
