Your expectations in a mediumship session

To All Clients Who Wish to Speak With Their Loved Ones Who Have Passed On

  • I am an Evidential Medium, and I will attempt to give you evidence in the form of communication with your loved one to bring you peace in your heart and in theirs.
  • It is through the Grace of God that I am able to do what I do!
  • I work for God, but I am not God, so please don't expect me to be perfect at connecting heaven and earth.
  • All I can do is the best that I can do
  • People don't change after they pass away. If they were quiet in life they will be quiet in death.
  • If your loved one would not visit a psychic/medium when they were alive, they may refuse to come to me once they have crossed over.
  • Hopefully, you will hear from the person you most want to hear from, but that is not always the case.
  • Some of you will say, I will know if Karen is REAL if she says this: "magic word," or "mentions this photo," or whatever… Please, don't put that kind of pressure on Spirit, yourself, or me!
  • I work for Spirit, (the dead), to bring through messages that Spirit, (the dead), need to convey, and sometimes that is not what you (who are living) may need or want to hear.
  • I know many of you are grieving a tremendous loss, and of course I honor your loss, but I need feedback to know if you understand the references that Spirit is referring to in your session.
  • Please have that person's name and date of birth available to me at the start of our session.
  • If I give you a name, it doesn't have to be someone who is passed on. It may be an acknowledgement of or message to someone who is alive.
  • If you did not know the person well enough in this lifetime, you may not understand the information being conveyed.
  • I hear, (clairaudience), see, (clairvoyance), and feel, (clairsentience), the information so if I am not looking directly at you I am not trying to be rude. I am "in the zone" as it were…
  • Please don't "feed me" the information. I have been doing this work for over 37 years. An enthusiastic "yes" or "no" is sufficient.
  • What you "see on television" is a complete fabrication of events designed to entertain and tell a story. Events frequently do not occur like that and are depicted differently from the way they actually happened. Live medium-ship means that I will be wrong, mistaken or incorrect on occasion.

What is Mediumship?

A medium is a person whose senses are so acute that they register the presence of beings belonging to the non-physical world, and interpret the wishes and information which such beings desire to impart to people still in the body in this physical world.

There are various happenings that may result from contact with the spirit world, feelings such as cold or drafts, transportation of objects, seeing of colors or floating lights or even the apparition of the deceased person. Sight is known as clairvoyance or sometimes referred to as second sight. Clairaudience means clear hearing, which can come as an audible perception of music, voice or calling of a name Mediums may go Into trance-state and speak other languages. It is also possible for the medium to write, paint pictures, diagnose illness or send healing energies (similar to Reiki).

It is important for the developing medium to remember that the spirit messages are interpreted by the mediums consciousness. Therefore the spirit entity will use the mental facilities that the medium possesses. As one continues to develop, the medium will realize the different qualities of the spirit messages and will learn to develop a more acute state of awareness to decipher the difference between the message from the spirit and their own mind.

Recognition of Mediumship


Some mediums see spirits as physical forms, but it is necessary to know that it is not the physical eye that is the center of psychic vision. it is within the forehead referred to as the third eye and usually (but not necessarily) seen when the physical eyes are closed.

A clairvoyant vision is generally discerned when ordinary consciousness is at rest. Sometimes it will be seen as a complete figure or the face of the spirit or it may be a nebulous form that seems to be hidden in a cloudy substance. Many times it is beautiful scenery and intensely colored symbols that seem to be swirling in the head of the medium. This experience of inward consciousness may seem to be merely imaginary, but when the sitter aclmowledges it, the medium knows that he or she has experienced spirit communication. As the medium continues to worrk, the sublets between imagination and clairvoyant communication are recognized.


Each medium will develop a personal vocabulary of symbols. Keeping a journal of definitions is advisable. The medium will experience different feelings than other mediums with certain symbols or colors. Examine your own feelings as a symbol or color reveals itself.


Mediums do not always recognize when they are awak

enlng the facility of hearing. They are expecting to hear an audible loud voice. Sometimes this will happen: Occasionally It will be musical and other times it will be impressions. A name or a word will keep coming to mind or music that is symbolic of a particular occasion such as The Wedding March. As the medium becomes increasingly sensitive there will be a distInct feeling coming into consciousness. Mediums will be able to develop discernment between memories and spirit messages.


A wave of a scent of roses fills the air or the smell of chocolate fills the room. The medium is being given a message by the communicator that is helping to identify the spirit by creating a scent within the medium's faculties. Karen's ability to pick up these signals is one reason why she asks all of her clients to not wear heavy perfume so that she may pick up these messages.


During the sitting the medium will experience the taste of Grandma's meatloaf or grandpa's scotch. The medium will be able to to taste some of the loved ones favorite foods.
