Clients often have questions how I operate as a psychic. I have compiled eleven of the favourite questions with answers.
Check out the image and we can see can see the notes flowing across the page. They are guidance on how the tune will go, but you know that with music on a sheet it is the interpretation that is key. No two players are going to give the same ‘performance’. I guess that it is the same for me, once I get the inspiration and how I relay this experience to the clients.
I hope this will give you a better understanding of how we work. Apart from our gift, we are still souls that dwell the earth, like the next man in the street.
So what is that difference? Well, I guess that many of us love music, but forget the most important thing is that we never hear the notes individually. They come together to blend into a beautiful piece that can both inspire and move us in many different ways at different times. Perhaps as sixth sensers we do hear all the notes but have been given the beautiful gift of making sense of all them and passing on this great tune.
An old school friend of mine, Gerda Van Zyl Pietersen commented on my recent “The Haunted House” article.
“Neels, I think you are doing very interesting work, but also sad. Don’t you feel depressed at times?”
I have decided to do this article as I realised like the volcano in the image, people know very little how we as psychics operate. Often at times, the info just bubbles out of us like volcanic lava.
In The Beginning
As a child, I was very lucky to know both of my great-grandmothers. One of them died when I was five years old. At the funeral, I couldn’t understand why there was a lot of crying and sadness. For me, if I can recall correctly any emotion, it was more relief than anything. Shortly after this event, my premonitions started.
I was visiting my grandparents, accompanied by my parents. I announced at the breakfast table that somebody was going to die that day. You could see the horror and shock in everyone’s faces, except my grandmother’s, who was a psychic too. Needless to say, I was scolded by my parents who told me it was my imagination. Yet, even at that early age, I was never wrong with my premonitions and death always followed the same day.
After the third time, I had made announcements to my family about deaths that would be happening, I realised that I was completely freaking them out. So my grandmother told me to keep my enlightenments from the rest of my family and only to share them with her. I came to the conclusion I was “different” and “freaked people out”, especially as the premonitions I had were mostly about relatives or people known to me. As such I seldom shared information with others and in my Christian community and upbringing my parents and peers were not supportive of my gift.
At the age of sixteen the premonitions stopped, but I could still feel souls around me. As a child, I was very sensitive and I often avoided body contact, because when I touched them I could feel their various emotions almost like the flash of light in the picture.
The Intermediate Years
I know now I had gift, but wasn’t sure what it was all about. I saw a show on TV once which fascinated me, there was a medium that was completing a reading and it prompted me to start my lifelong passion for understanding this medium pathway.
Fortunately, I had a friend that was very clued up on psychic work and she allowed me to discover “by accident” that I also have medium abilities. In this time, I also came into contact with a well evolved psychic that taught me how to develop so that I could help people. She coached me to:
· Clean haunted houses
· Do psychic healings
· Medium consultations
To this day I enjoy the medium sessions the most. There are no grey areas. If you tell a client his contact has red hair and the person was blond, you have a problem. In most cases the information I pass on is positive often with happy memories. One thing I have learned, the contacts never give advice. They have had their time and are not allowed to interfere on this mortal plain.
The Advanced Years
If you look at the spiralling smoke in the volcano, things started to spiral for me too. I came into contact with fake psychics that did readings for clients; their readings were inaccurate and often at worse very distressing for the clients. I had a few requests to do readings. At this point in my life, I replied numerous times that this was “not my line of work”. In the end I gave in, did the research I had to, and I started to do client readings.
Like the lightening on the picture, I realised with a bolt, for me, what was going on. I had more than a hundred people per month just for readings, regardless the other work I do. I now had a lot of jealous fake psychics around me. Black negative spells were cast on me. So I had to do healings on myself on a regular basis. As a “white spiritual” psychic, I have learned how to remove spells but not to cast them.
As Gerda mentioned, I was a quite child. I had to figure out for myself. Where I do belong in this world? Where was I heading with this gift?
But fighting black evil and unwanted spirits meant that I had to develop fast in a flash. Just like a clap of thunder.
For me, the satisfied and happy clients are the most rewarding part of this work. So how do you summarise all of this? I guess that although nature can take its time and often with our personal development it can seem slow. Sometimes, the elements often jolt us out of the blue to get flashes of inspiration. The changes can be instant but often very rewarding.
Early Years & Inner Work
I always felt that I was given a gift when it came to my sixth sense even at the early age of six but did not quite understand what this was about. This followed in my teenage years with other insights when I was 16, which gave personal confirmation to my abilities.
Luckily, in my late 20’s, I met with a wise lady who taught me how to develop my spiritual path through the use of inner healings both with the client present and also remote by developing my abilities in astral travel.
Working with her she enabled me to increase my observation skills and ensure that I work to an ethical framework. A key part of this framework is the process that you need to ensure that your own soul is kept safe from that of others and sometimes the client’s soul.
With some clients they have impurities that cling on to them. A fascinating part of working alongside her allowed me to see how I could remove these and also help the clients towards a happier and healthy life.
The Spiritual Pudding!
As they say, the proof of the pudding is in some fine ingredients, making and baking....oh and let’s not forget the tasty eating too...
So let me share my special mix.....
As I was a sensitive child, many people gave me the impression that this was a negative thing but I have learned that many expensive and precious things are the most sensitive. Dealing with that negativity and finding that it was a positive thing has helped me to develop my spiritual gifts, for other people and forces that may seek to work against them.
Sadly, there are a number of people out there who are fake; they claim to be able to do this sort of work but at a vast cost. They will say things such as...."There is a spell on you, was done by someone in your family with blond hair and its going to cost you a R1000-00 to remove."
This is not only upsetting for the clients, but also shows that they are out always for more clients and more money. Whilst we can’t deny that we all like to be recompensed for our work, money is not a primary motivator for doing this work and any good medium would tell you this.
A vital mix is the observation skills. They are very necessary when doing healings to distinguish if souls are working in harmony with me or not.
The following healing was important to me in making this spiritual pudding, out of the blue a lady called me. She was hysterical. Her husband had been to the "best" psychic in town and he had predicted the following:
● The husband will have 3 children.
● The third child will be with the second wife.
● This gave the wife about a year to live.
I comforted her and told her that is was a lot of nonsense. I kept in contact with her via friends and she and her husband are still happily married. I am not sure about the third child.
This was a turning point for me, the day I made the decision to start to do readings. My intensions for doing the readings have always been pure.
One day while I was doing a reading the client asked me: “Is my daughter pregnant”. I responded and said “No”. She opened her handbag and gave me a positive lab test. I have learned to trust my intuition and I never rephrase something to suit the client. My response to her was let me know what happens I would love to hear what the outcome of this would be. She called me about a month later and told me, something went wrong at the lab and it’s confirmed that she was not pregnant.
As you know when baking, not all mixes are totally successful and I feel that it is important to share some of the things that did not quite work out but still important as a way of learning.
I have a friend, Sonja that is very clued up on psychic stuff. Up until this time I concentrated on readings. She concentrated more on the Spiritual things. One night we had a BBQ/Braai. We all had a few drinks and I was quite relaxed. Out of blue she asked me how her brother died. Spontaneously I replied he was murdered. Funny enough with the alcohol, I could give her some more detail.
That was the last time I had alcohol when working. I don’t work if I am not 100% this includes the emotional and spiritual aspects. I came to the realization that I am a medium and it is part of my life and will always be.
Seems like food and my work have never been far from my life....
It was not long after the BBQ that I had call from a lady, her husband died in hospital and things did not match. I also informed her that the session might be “shaky” because she will be my first client for a medium session.
I was a bit nervous, and to be honest I battled, but could relay the following information to her:
● A detailed description about the husband.
● Her husband might have been given the wrong medication.
● Various details about the children and his fears that he is not around.
● Also that he was a devoted husband and father.
● A few funny moments that they shared together.
This was a very emotional session for me to (keep in mind if feel all the emotions the husband had). She was very pleased with the results. She had taken the hospital file with her and had lawyers investigating her husband’s death. I was very pleased with the outcome of the session.
Other clients heard of this work and it helped me develop my medium work.
What I did establish in this time is that I can do a medium session the minute the person dies up until the funeral. Once the funeral is over I have to wait 12-18 months, before I can sense the soul.
About three months later I got a call from a man – he told me it was his best friend. I gave him an appointment. I confirmed with him that the time was right.
He arrived for the session. I went and made us some tea. Then I asked him the person’s name. I sensed him immediately. It was the same man as my first session. This time he had a lot of anger towards his friend and was no longer the devoted father. I could relay the following information to him:-
● He was aware that the friend knew his wife had an affair with another man.
● He wanted to know why the friend never told him about this.
● Some other meaningless stuff, mainly to confirm that he was the right soul.
This was a very angry session. I think both of us were a bit shook up. To this day, I have not heard another thing from this group of friends or family; and I can’t confirm if there was fowl play with the medication. I often wonder why the husband never confronted the wife with the affair.
Finally, I am sure that you like me all like to enjoy a success be that a pudding or more importantly work that has changed someone’s world.
I had an old client that complained that her 3 year old daughter did not develop according to her age. Developmental she was more than a year behind. Medically nothing could be found wrong with her and the paediatricians had no answers. I offered to do a healing. A few months later she had leapt ahead compared to her equals.
Feedback from my clients has been good and they claim that I am 95% - 100% correct with my readings. And all off a sudden I have taken over the “best” psychic clients.
