Readings and healings and balance, OH MY!



If you’ve never had a reading with an intuitive or a psychic or a medium, you might not be sure what to expect.

I’ve sampled many a reading in my day including:

  • a session with renowned psychic Rev. Dr. Reed Brown of Arlington Metaphysical Chapel wherein he told me the name of one of my Guides in Spirit.  Now, the guide was not your usual run of the mill Archangel (Sorry, Archangel Michael, no disrespect intended!) but the unusually named Vywamus.  The funny thing is, on the way to the appointment, I asked Vy to come through Pastor Brown so I’d know he was real.  And he did.  Back then, I was shocked. Now? I just smile and say “Yeah”.
  • healing sessions with several wonderful practitioners who used energy work to shift things around
  •  Aura healing sessions to remove cords of attachment
  • Personal Coaches who openly used their intuitive skills to guide me

Each healer used their wonderful Creator-given skills to assist me in moving forward on my path.  And each did it in a very unique way.

That’s the thing.

When you make an appointment with an intuitive, a healer, a psychic, a medium, etc.  you really can’t know ahead of time what to expect.

The way I bring through messages is very different than the way my friend Kara does, or AJ or Francis.

Are all valid?


Here’s why: You will be drawn to working with someone who is uniquely positioned to give you the message, healing or guidance you need.  I’ve seen that happen time and time again.

If you feel like you need some support on your path, how do you decide which way to go?

Let me offer some suggestions:

1) Ask your Guides and Teachers in Spirit to help you find someone with the set of skills that will best assist you.  And then pay attention to who shows up – what websites come through that pique your interest.  If a name of a reader or healer is mentioned out of the blue a couple times, you might want to look into that.  It’s what we in the biz call “a message” (heh!).

2) Do you like the energetic ‘feel’ of a certain person? That’s a big big clue. I remember going to a lunchtime seminar many years ago and really liked the speaker.  She happened to be a therapist who was lecturing about the benefits of humor in the workplace.  I knew I wanted to work with her right that day.  She became my therapist (and truly the person who kept me from going off the deep end) for many years.

3) Write to or email someone you’re considering working with and see how they respond.  My letter to the crossfit gym last week elicited a response from the lovely Drea that made me feel warm and taken care of and really paved the way for me to sign up for the appointment.  It was a big sign that I was moving in the right direction.  If you receive a response that makes you feel that way, take action.  It (and they) showed up to help you move forward.

What’s been your best way of knowing who can help you? A feeling? A recommendation? A nudge? Let us know in the comments below.

(UBC) Day 27: Is Matthew really that “far out”?

My intuitive pal Francis mentioned to me on Facebook that she thinks Matthew’s Messages are “a little out there”.

I laughed and responded that I’ve been reading them for so long (going on nine years) that it doesn’t even faze me now.

For those who are not familiar with Matthew and his messages, channeled through his mother, let me fill you in a bit.

You can read the entire story here but in a nutshell, Matthew died in a car accident at age 17 and years and years later, his mother (Suzy Ward) began to receive messages from him essentially telling her that part of her work here on Earth was to transcribe these messages about life on “the other side” and get them out to a wider audience.

From Amazon’s author page on Suzanne Ward:

“After her 17-year old son Matthew was fatally injured in a vehicle crash in 1980, Suzanne (Suzy) Ward contacted mediums for news of him, and all of them told her that when the time was right, she would communicate with him directly.

It was early in 1994 when Suzy and Matthew connected telepathically. During the first weeks they talked about his life in Earth’s spirit world, and then he started introducing members of several civilizations that are spiritually, intellectually and technologically far advanced from our own.

Matthew told his mother that her profession as journal editor was part of their family’s pre-birth agreement, the experience she needed to organize the transmissions she was receiving from him and many other extraterrestrial souls. He said her primary lifetime mission was to publish their information about this unprecedented era in the universe as Earth ascends into her Golden Age of planetary peace.

Suzy formed Matthew Books in 2001, and by the end of 2003, the company had published “Matthew, Tell Me about Heaven,” “Revelations for a New Era,” “Illuminations for a New Era,” and “Voices of the Universe.” Since then, English editions have sold in 50 countries and one or more of the books have been translated into 11 foreign languages. Except for “Heaven,” the books have been revised to include updated information, and Suzy’s book, “Amusing to Profound–My Conversations with Animals I and II,” came out in 2012.”

So, yeah. I can see how that might be a bit out there but not that much, right?

If you read through the messages, you’ll hear Matthew talk a lot about the Illuminati (they are real, unfortunately), groups like the “galatic federation” (real, too) and lots of other things that we don’t often discuss in open company. (I don’t, in any case.)

Yet, I find his words to be of such a high vibration, and consistently so, that I cannot discount them. There’s a spiritual group I know from a political website who also follows Matthew’s messages and almost to a person, they feel that same high vibration.

That’s the hallmark of spiritual guidance – the high vibration. Matthew never, ever sends negative, “fear-based” messages. He talks of how each of us, on our own soul path, can assist the collective ascension of Mother Earth.

Since I’ve been reading his messages, I have been able to understand the bigger picture of all the chaos swirling around and it’s helped me to hold that high vibration in my own life.

Bottom line: read the messages for yourself and do a gut-check.

Does it resonate with you?

Does it feel “off” somehow?

That’s the only way you’ll be able to discern what is truth *for you* in this kind of stuff. Just because I say it feels high vibration to me and I put a lot of stock in it, doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Only you can know that. It’s all part of that “self-authority” thing I go on and on about.

Archangel Gabriel once told me that if something doesn’t resonate with you, that means there’s no lesson there for you. Doesn’t mean it’s not someone’s “truth”, just means it’s not relevant for your work here in this incarnation. I’ve seen that to be true in my own life.

Matthew’s Messages bring me hope, help me understand the larger picture, allow me to understand events that may be beyond my understanding and solidify for me that life goes on, albeit in a different energetic form. That’s MY truth.

What’s yours?

Archangel Michael to the rescue! The work of Divine Beings in Cord Cutting sessions

I did two readings today and in both, my good friend Archangel Michael came galloping in to make his presence known. And in each, he specifically asked my client to actively call him into action so he can assist them.

Those who have had energetic cords of attachment removed with me know that I always call in Archangel Michael to do this work because his specialty is removing what no longer belongs. He slices and dices those cords for clear, permanent removal.

But he also does a great job offering protection to your house, land, even your beloved iPad! 🙂 He has an amazingly high vibration and a loving presence. You couldn’t ask for a better ally.

And remember: all you have to do is ask him (or any Divine Being) and POOF! They’re right there with you. Would I lie to you???

I’m off work all next week so if you’re itching to have a session with me, now’s a great time! I can do daytime or evening. This freedom doesn’t come around often (well, until I start doing this full time!) so shoot me an email if you’re up for some pre-holiday insight and healing.

Podcast #17: Yes, I really do hear dead people! Stories of communicating with the dead

By Lisa Wechtenhiser

Lauren and me 2005

I do! I hear angels and guides, why not dead people, right?

In this week’s podcast, I share a bit about what it’s like to communicate with those who have crossed over and why conversations with them often bring peace and comfort. My goddaughter, Lauren (pictured above), was a catalyst in bringing out in full force my abilities as a medium. My relationship with her after she transitioned has convinced me that there is so much more than we can even imagine.

Take a listen!

Podcast Transcript

from Practically Intuitive Podcasts

Hi and welcome to the weekly Practically Intuitive podcasts!

I’m Lisa and you can find me at PracticallyIntuitive.com, where I take a look at intuition and how you can bring it even more fully into your life. I also talk about other things such as healing cords of attachment, co-creating with your Guides and Teachers in spirit and even communicating with those loved ones who have crossed over.

And that’s my topic for this week: talking with the dead. Appropriate for Halloween , isn’t it?

Now, I haven’t always been able to hear the deceased like I have guides in spirit. But when I attuned my inner hearing better, I began picking things up for others. It started very clearly for me when I gave Reiki sessions for people. The Reiki energy is a beautiful frequency and through that vibration, I was able to pick up in great detail messages for those who were on my table during a session.

These messages were always loving and brought great comfort to my clients and I was overjoyed to be the messenger for them. I started watching Lisa Williams, a medium who had a television show, and would match what I was getting with what she got and it was almost always on the mark. But more than accuracy, which I do, of course, care about, was the compassion she provided, the closure, the peace that others were able to get after having spoken with their loved ones. I considered offering sessions doing just that and spoke with my Guide team about it. They said that it’s one of my gifts and that I could bring it out if so called.

Well, I’ve gotten the call. And I’ll now be offering these sessions to my clients. But more about that later.

If you’ve read the “about me” part of my site, you know that my 19 year old goddaughter Lauren passed away in 2006 from cancer. And though I’ve not had a child of my own in this lifetime, Lauren was as close as I’d ever get to it. She was my friend, my joy, and one of the greatest blessings in my life. Losing her, even though I knew it was coming, was devastating. The grief was so intense – I’d sit and stare out the window for hours at a time, numb to everything but my pain. I can only begin to wrap my head around the pain her parents felt as they walked the path with her – and alone after she was gone. If my grief was this great, what must the depths of theirs be?

The only thing that helped me heal was my exquisite faith that she was not really gone and that we’d see each other again. And this was confirmed for me when she began to show up in so many ways that there was just no denying it. It happened with her mother as well. We’d compare Lauren sightings all the time. Through my contact with her in the afterworld, I began to understand much more of what happens when we pass over and how true it is that our loved ones are around us all the time. We just have to know how to tune in.

And that’s what I can do – I can adjust the switch on my inner radio dial and connect with loved ones on the other side. As I’ve mentioned, it most often happens to me in the bathroom. I don’t know why, but my aunt came to say goodbye to me there before she left the earth plane, a co-worker’s mother who had recently passed began dictating a message to me in the bathroom (and I had to ask her to wait until I was near a pen and paper). It happens a lot. I think I read that there’s something about the water frequency that makes it easy for those in spirit to connect.

The messages that come through are so loving and offer so much comfort. After my mom died, I was telling people at the funeral home that I think she loved my husband more than me because he was so very attentive to her all the time and I had sorta fallen down on that often. After the funeral, my friend Regina, a clairvoyant, (who was, by the way NOT at the funeral home) came up to me and said she had a message from my mom saying, “I love you best.” She relayed. So yes, they hear us, all the time. You don’t have to do anything special for them to hear you. No special chants, incantations, lighting of candles are needed. Just speak from your heart, wherever you are and know you are heard.

If you have issues that you’d like closure on or just want to connect with your loved ones, I’d welcome the opportunity to be of service. Never be afraid of what comes through – there is only love from that side and peace.

We get so much support from those who have lived through the pain and grief and it really speeds up the healing process. I promise a safe place where you can share your thoughts and feelings. In a session, I offer a very safe and loving place to connect with those you wish to contact and heal what is in your heart.

Yes, I still get very teary-eyed when I think of my goddaughter, Lauren, but I know, without question, that this is not all there is and so much more awaits us on the other side.
