Not Your Typical Medium- Michael Christopher - Evidential Medium
I was born and raised in upstate New York. After completing my military career, I retired and currently reside in central North Dakota. My wife and I have been married for 27 years and we have one beautiful daughter.
I am not the typical medium you probably hear or read about; one who was immediately aware of their abilities since they were very young; quite the opposite for me. For most of my life, the awareness of any spiritual phenomena or, ghostly activity was nowhere on my radar. For the most part, I had a pretty “normal” life. It wasn’t until I was in my 40’s that I began to subtly become aware that something beyond me was beginning to present.
About halfway through my 20-year career in the United States Air Force, around the year 2000, I was diagnosed with a form of kidney disease. I was then told that more than likely it would progress to kidney failure and that I would more than likely need a kidney transplant. This news completely rocked my world! I began to find myself doing an awful lot of soul searching and constantly trying to make sense out of everything and, I mean everything. And, looking back now, I feel that that medical situation was the spark that possibly put me on the path to becoming a medium.
Around the time of my kidney disease diagnosis, my wife just happened to come across a television show starring a psychic medium named John Edward. The television show was titled “Crossing Over” and it aired back in the early 2000’s. I found myself completely intrigued and fascinated! This led me on a quest to find more information. I began to read countless books by other mediums such as Sylvia Browne, Lisa Williams, and James Van Praagh, just to name a few. For reasons I can’t explain, these books brought about this feeling of peace and comfort. And, unknowingly, I believe this was an informal education that I would call upon years later.
At this point in my journey, I had no idea that one day I too would be reuniting family members and friends with those that had crossed over. To me, reading about the afterlife and the paranormal was just a fascinating past time. The thought of becoming a medium was the furthest thing from my mind and the last thing I ever wanted for myself. But, events were unfolding that led me closer to my calling.
In June of 2010, almost one year after retiring from the Air Force, my kidneys failed. I remember thinking that I did not want to go on, I wanted to die. In some irrational way, the thought of fighting for my life scared me more than death. But, then one or two days after finding out my kidneys failed this feeling came over me. I had this brief thought that I must fight. I then remember literally looking up to the big man upstairs and giving “him” an ultimatum. I said, “if I’m supposed to be here, for whatever reason, you need to help me find a kidney within one year. If I don’t find a kidney within a year, I’m checking out because I’m not going to live on a dialysis machine.” Within six months, my fellow Air Force brother Stan donated his kidney to me!
The Final Event That Revealed I am an Evidential Medium
The final event that brought abilities to forefront came in the summer of 2015, my sister Jackie was murdered. It’s a long story but, Jackie and I never had the chance to meet. She was born to my Father’s second wife. Shortly after she was born, I left for the military and through the years the opportunity to meet never happened. The sorrow and guilt of never getting the opportunity to meet her caused me much grief. Then one morning, about two months after her passing, while making breakfast, I felt a presence behind me. Suddenly, Jackie entered my consciousness. In my mind, I saw her standing right next to me and then, I felt her energy and then she laid her head on my shoulder and hugged me! It was so real! I just froze! This experience lasted about 20 seconds and then she left.
A mediumship reading later confirmed that this experience was real! Jackie did, in fact, pay me a visit! Then the bombshell hit, I was told I was a medium! At first, I did not want anything to do with being a medium but, I would later find that not being a medium was not an option for me. Events following the visit from my sister started to present themselves one after another and my abilities came on very fast and very clear. I began to meet people that would help me along this path; some are mediums and others are teachers and I’m thankful every day for each one of them!
I now understand these events were perfectly aligned to help me develop and grow into the evidential medium I am today.
About Mediumship and Intuitive/Psychic Readings
My goal with mediumship is to bring through evidential information and healing. Each reading is different, and Spirit knows what a person needs to hear to begin healing from loss and grief. Validation is a very important part of the process, it is extremely important for a medium to present facts and specific details about the client’s loved ones that have passed. Spirit often shares information about themselves or loved ones in the living that there is no way for me to have known. They often give me information about things going on in the family currently to show that they are with you and often mention upcoming events as well. I’m able to connect to your loved ones in spirit, in-person, over the phone or, online.
If you have questions about life decisions, relationships, career, etc., an intuitive reading is what you need. I can often tune into your energy and help you navigate your path ahead. I also help you learn to listen to your own intuition/ “gut feelings,” surrounding your decisions. Please be aware that freewill is always a factor with intuitive sessions. For example, if I were to tell you that I see you getting the job that you have been hoping for but, then you fail to go to the interview, you probably will not get the job. Extreme example but, you probably see my point? You still need to take the steps to achieve any outcome; spirit is not going to do the work for you. I also do not have or, use a “crystal ball.” I do not see into the future and can’t tell you lottery numbers!
I do not separate a mediumship session from intuitive session or, vice versa. When you book a session with me, I will use my own intuitiveness and let the session guide itself. I have learned that with any session, spirit knows what you need most, and you will receive what you need over what you may want. This is not to say that if you have come to connect with a past loved one that that will not happen but, you may receive information from your guides in addition to hearing from a past loved one or friend, if that is something you need on a soul-level.
