Not Your Typical 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 30 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.
