Do You Need A Reading?

First of all, you don’t NEED a reading! You can desire a reading to provide more information into a specific situation. Not a need but a desire.

Most times people clam up when I talk about this stuff. Why? Well instead of explaining it, I can show it to you.

Today I received this message in my dm:

118297501_10159987140859638_6290217011995870044_o

Ya know……. it’s stuff like this that gives my line of work a bad name.

Sigh, don’t worry folks. I wouldn’t ever reach out to you and tell you this.

Readings are meant to validate what you already know. The truth is we already have inner knowledge of where we are going but yet sometimes we hesitate or have confusion. That’s when you get a reading.

Most of my clients already know the answer and my readings provide them the validation and confidence they need to make the next step.

Sometimes I see things they don’t see because in addition to being a reader, I am a seer. It is an ability I had since I was a child that developed and got more accurate and stronger over the years. In those situations, my seership proves invaluable as it allows my client to prepare for what will come.

Case in point, I read for a few people this year in January as an annual reading. I predicted sudden upsets to their lives and through my guidance, they were able to prepare for what was coming.

None of us KNEW it was Covid but my readings readied them and they were! Several clients wrote me by March to validate the reading and how it helped them so much.

My own readings also gave me this guidance last summer and I was able to prepare ahead of time for this year.

Most people when they reach out to me, have no idea what an intuitive reading is so I wanted to break it down a bit and explain what I do.

Firstly I do three specific types of readings that I will share now including my why and how of what I do.

 

  1. Mediumship Readings- this option is for people who want to connect with a loved one who has passed and is on the other side.

Why:

Most times people want to know that their loved one made it to the other side safely and if they had any last messages for them.

How:

The critic might say that I can make up stuff to tell them and yes they are correct. However as an evidential medium, my task is to provide solid evidence on the person to the client, information they can verify. This weans out the fakes and wannabes who pull on generic information that can be used for multiple people.

When I connect with a loved one on the other side, I present evidential material to my client and once it is validated then I can move on to a message from them. Its a form of checks and balances I use to ensure the quality of the connection and to ensure there is a smooth delivery of communication between the living and the dead.

 

2. Spiritual Assessments- this reading is for people who would like spiritual guidance from their Spirit team.

Why: Sometimes in life we can feel lost or stuck and would like spiritual guidance from a higher Source into our situation. This is the reading people book.

How: In this instance I am not travelling to the realms of the dead for connection, I am going UP to higher realms of consciousness to bring information from people’s spirit guides and guardian angels. I do this by changing my levels of perception and contacting the Spirit world. I have been doing this since as a child so this work comes quite naturally for me and it is my favorite type of reading to do because it helps people understand where they are and where they need to focus on to keep going. Very helpful.

 

3. Intuitive Readings – this option is for people who have specific questions they would like answers to.

Why: Sometimes people feel stuck or confused into which direction to move into. This reading can help by bringing answers from the spiritual realms to provide guidance in next steps.

How: Usually I use tarot cards along with divination tools to help me gain these answers for people. I can see the past, the present and the future in these types of readings and I usually communicate with the higher consciousness of the person or their spirit guides for the answers. Most times when I bring answers, the client already knows the answer so it brings great relief and validation for their next steps.

Doing readings bring me joy because it allows me to truly help people from a spiritual place when they are feeling less than positive or happy. I love to see people happy and thriving so when they leave a reading happy, it makes me happy.

Sometimes I get people who are unhappy with the reading because the messages are not what they want to hear. This usually happens in cases of love readings because due to my ethics, I do not read another person aside from the client without their permission. You would be surprised how many nosey mothers or possessive girlfriends need this! When I refuse to do it, they can get mad or vengeful but I keep my stance because ethically it is wrong to do.

When someone comes to me for a relationship reading, I let them know that I cannot read the person without their permission but I can ask Spirit what advice they would like to give you. Most times people understand and are happy with that and it tends to work out well.

Readings can be helpful if you work with someone who has experience and integrity in this field.

If you have never had a reading, here is my advice for you when booking one.

  1. Find a reader to give you the session you desire. If you want a mediumship reading, find a medium. If you want a spiritual assessment, find a spiritual advisor and if you want an intuitive reading, find a psychic.

2. Whichever reader you go with, experience is preferred. Don’t be shy to ask your reader about their experience and demand for facts not generalities. When people check me out, I can easily tell them I have been doing this for 11 years and have provided over 10,000 private sessions in healing and readings. I also teach tarot workshops and host three mentorship development programs annually.

3. Do your research and check them out on social media. You can pick up on the tone and energy of a reader by what they post and see if it is in alignment with your energy and beliefs.

4. And finally, find someone you are magnetically pulled to. There are just some people you feel good around and that helps. When you feel comfortable with someone, you will trust them more and the reading will flow easily. Remember it is all based on energy and intent so starting with someone you like is a sure fire way to find your way to a great experience.

I hope you liked this article and if so, please feel free to leave a comment! I look forward to meeting you or reading for you sometime in the future. Until then, many blessings for a peaceful life. xo Uma

Why I walk the Spiritualist Path

I came to the path of Spiritualism in 2016 when I first stepped onto the holy grounds of the Arthur Findlay college in Stansted, UK. Ok it wasn’t holy, but it felt like that to me. Similiar to the Harry Potter movie where young witches and wizards got off the Hogwarts Express to Hogwarts, I too felt bedazzled by the huge castle, wintery grounds and sense of magic in the air. I was taken.

As I began my week long studies in mediumship, I learned too about the path of Spiritualism and quickly joined the SNU (Spiritual National Union) pledging my support whole heartedly.

Why?

Spiritualism is a religion separate from Christianity but, yet it tends to get grouped in with it. This happens because of the many similarities of the religions in act but differences in intent. It is these differences in intent that drew me in, and I hope after reading this article, it will draw you in too (at least intellectually :))

For an example in differences in intent, both Christianity and Spiritualism believe in a heaven and hell. Christianity believes people end up in either based on their deeds. Spiritualism believes that heaven and hell are not actual places but states of consciousness that souls go to based on the Law of Attraction.

As a Spiritualist grows, the learning of new knowledge is often at odds with their past learning. For this and other reasons, it is imperative to clearly express the beliefs and teachings of Modern Spiritualism.

The biggest difference (in my eyes) from Spiritualism and Christianity is that Christianity views man as flawed. We “fell from grace” and needed to atone for our sins. Spiritualism acknowledges the part of the Bible where God created man in his likeness and sees the soul as a divine spark of light. This religion acknowledges that man has free will, and each person has the right to be creative and responsible for themselves.

While both religions reference the Bible, there is a major difference here again. Christianity views the Bible as infallible and in Spiritualism, the bible is seen as fallible because even though it is inspired writing and came through the interpretation of men; which is prone to mistakes.

Christianity requires a belief in Jesus Christ as the only Savior and Son of God who can help us mortals gain salvation. In Spiritualism, Jesus is respected as a great Spiritual Teacher of the natural laws, to which Spiritualists subscribe. We are each responsible for our own salvation.

I like the path of Spiritualism because as a religion, its main focus is to raise the level of consciousness of humankind. This goal is in alignment with my goal and hence why I call myself a Spiritualist.

Spiritualism creates and encourages growth of one’s own individuality. Unlike other religions where we have to depend on someone else or something else for our salvation, Spiritualism makes us responsible for our own lives. I like that.  I spent many years as a Christian, and as much as I love the religion and rituals, I didn’t like the idea that a beautiful, compassionate, loving person like Jesus had to suffer and eventually die for my sins. That is the description of vicarious atonement and thankfully it has no place in Spiritualism.

One of the positive aspects of Spiritualism is to objectify life as a means for us spiritual beings to unfold physically, mentally and spiritually in a balanced state conducive to progression. It recognizes the divinity within each of us that we are not a body with a soul, but that we are souls with physical bodies.

From this viewpoint, we then get to see religion not as a static dogma or creed but flowing as a way of life. As we continue to understand the purpose and the continuity of this life beyond death, helps us to remove the fear of death.

I remember the days of old when I sat in church as a young child, and listened to the Priest go on and on about the hellfire, brimstone and horror that awaited my young, sinful flesh. No thank you! I am grateful that Spiritualism has taught me that death is not the cessation of life but a change of condition and continuation of our consciousness.

While most religions speak of the hereafter, only Spiritualism proves the existence of the hereafter through spirit communication and the phenomena of Spiritualism.  As a practicing evidential medium, it is as much awe for myself as it is for my clients when I bring through communication from their loved ones with details and specifics. I would be lying if I said each time I did it, I got less sensitized. I am always in amazement at what Spirit brings and just how much they prove the continuity of life after death.

Another great aspect of Spiritualism is the encouragement to seek further education to develop our spiritual talents. We are supported to learn and not dwell on lower energy such as anger and envy.

In ending, I will not judge another religion for people. For me, I came to the path of Spiritualism because I needed the positive messages, uplifting views on death and dying and encouragement in my spiritual development. Basically, I like how I feel on the Spiritualist path and because it has helped me so much, I have decided to share it with any and everyone who would like to hear about it. After all, as Ram Dass said quite eloquently: “We are all walking each other home.” Let’s get there peaceful, happy and content.

Love and Light until next time,
