As many of you already know, I have a twin sister and she’s also a practicing psychic medium. She’s one of the many loves of my life and a just a few days ago, my significant other asked me what was the difference between Sarah and I, even though, he’s known us both for years.
Specifically, he was referring to our mediumship abilities since both of us, connect with Spirit to receive healing and guidance. But today, I wanted to clear the air on not only what sets us apart in terms of our abilities, but also what makes us so similar to each other and to everyone else that we connect with.
Aside from teaching others how to communicate with Spirits and communicating with Spirit for others one-on-one, I live a pretty normal life. In fact, so does Sarah. We pay bills, run low on gas in our cars and have to spend hours on the phone with Comcast internet provider, which is something that took up half of my morning just today.
In the moment that I write this, I just finished unpacking groceries from the local, non-organic, non-specialty supermarket and I’m preparing for my significant other to finally move into my home after living separately for a very long time. It’s a huge move and a very big jump. I’m nervous about it, primarily because I’m used to living alone and I spend a lot of time bringing non-traditional visitors and guests into the house. It’s one of the reasons why I’ve hesitated about living with others.
Sarah, on the other hand, just had her first baby a few years ago and has been living with her long time partner and now husband, Tom. They’ve been together since high school, where I have had a less than continuous stream of boyfriends and potential suitors over the years. Through Sarah, I’ve been able to see and witness the strength, commitment and troubleshooting that it takes to manage and maintain a very long term relationship, and through me, Sarah’s been able to learn the trials, tribulations and frustrations of being intermittently single and dating.
We both grew up as Mediums
As children, Sarah and I, didn’t really have a supportive family system to foster, generate and nurture our budding abilities or tolerate our occasional freak-outs over scary or hard to understand Spirit-experiences. But we always had each other. In fact, I distinctly remember countless occasions when one or the other of us would be scolded or given ‘the side eye’ for discussing anything paranormal. Over time, we learned to shut out, dismiss and not talk about our abilities in public, all the while, secretly talking about them in our room together.
While Sarah and I currently live apart, this is one of the primary reasons we have stayed so close. As we’ve grown up and grown together, we’ve been able to continually validate each others experiences as real, accurate and exactly what the other one saw.
Now, as professional mediums, we work together in all of our intuitive pursuits, whether we are just double checking a personal suspicion about something non-essential, such as whether or not our dog really tore up the carpet or if it was a mouse, or for more professional matters, such as working to offer our best information from Spirit in private sessions, classes and coaching.
We both have Advanced Science Degrees
In part because we both love learning, understanding and exploring and in part because we both simply love the natural world, Sarah and I both have pursued careers in scientific fields. Other than working with Spirits, I absolutely love and adore plants, soil and understanding how things tick in the natural world. And Sarah, she loves animals, behavior and understanding how things tick in the human world. In both cases, we’ve sought understanding, truth and a better grasp on what is going on and how things are connected and interact. We both also love sharing our passions with others, which is why we both have a great deal of experience in teaching the scientific material we love so much.
I am a very proud holder of a B.S. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a M.S. from Auburn University. Sarah is currently a proud holder of a B.S. and a M.S from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. By applying our scientific backgrounds to the most ancient pursuit of understanding of science and the natural world - Spirit - we are able to offer our clients, readers of our blogs and participants of our courses are more articulate, fine tuned and descriptive version of the truth, from our perspective, of course.
We have Complimentary Specialties
While Sarah and I both have Bachelor degrees in Biology and personal history in Paranormal and Spiritual experiences, from there, our professional specialties and what we have offered to the world around us differs. Growing up, our main abilities differed though, too. As a child and even now as an adult, my main ability to connect with Spirit is through Sight - I can see Spirit and they show me images to share with me their messages and I practice a form of mediumship called Message Mediumship where I connect with Spirit to receive healing messages, guidance and information for my clients and students. This is a form of mediumship otherwise known as Spiritual mediumship and it’s connecting with Spirit from the perspective of healing relationships.
Growing up, Sarah has always been more of a feeler and she can sense the energy of people, places and things. As a child, teen and even in early adulthood - this was really, really frustrating for me. For seemingly no reason at all, Sarah would declare that she didn’t like the vibe, energy or emotional state of something or someone - and from that point forward be done with it. Specifically this was a problem when it came to me finding boyfriends. Sarah’s energetic approval, was always, so important to me.
Now, Sarah uses her supreme ability of sensing energy, and then hearing messages and seeing images from Spirit, to heal others, and is no longer on-task of disproving my boyfriends. For the first time ever, she’s declared that my current partner has a pure heart and Spirit (Thank God). From the mediumship perspective, she works with people one on one to heal, transform and shift emotional, physical and spiritual illnesses, a form of mediumship called Healing Mediumship. And every single day, I’m amazed at her ability to connect with Spirit to heal others.
In this way, we work with each other and our clients and students holistically. I am always reminding her of the messages from those in Spirit, and she, always reminding me of the shifting dynamics of the Energetic and Spiritual Realm.
Nearly one year ago, an ancestor referred to us as the Yin and Yang of the World of Spirit. With each of our specialties, together we are able to provide well rounded clarity, awareness, and understanding to the two primary interconnected and interdependent elements of the unseen natural world: Spirit and Energy. Yin and Yang.
We look forward to connecting you, with Spirit, soon,
