When I tell people that my mother is a psychic medium, a channel, their responses vary greatly. Many people immediately ask for her number. Others ask what it was like growing up with a psychic mother (she actually didn’t tap into her gift until I was grown). And then there are the people who think the whole idea is either crazy or evil. I need to start off with the crazy/evil idea. I’ll give you a little on the “crazy” part as it is hard to comprehend that people can communicate with those who have crossed over but the “evil” part is absurd.
At the beginning of every reading, my mother says a prayer of protection and calls upon your angels, ancestors, loved ones, and spirit guides to bring you messages that are only for your highest good. Her messages are not scary or full of threats and fear. They are messages of love, support, and guidance and they often include tears of joy.
I have had the privilege of helping my mother at several of her in-home reading parties where people came to my home, or we went to theirs, and they all have their turn getting a reading from my mother. Through this experience, I have seen countless people receive comfort, peace, and confirmation that their loved ones are still nearby and with them. The peace this brings them can only be seen as a gift. There is nothing – NOTHING – evil about this. It is a blessing.
It’s intriguing to watch my mother give a reading. If you have ever seen video of Esther Hicks channeling Abraham (of Law of Attraction fame), it is not dissimilar to that. Whether in person or over the phone, my mother goes through the same steps. She says some prayers, goes into a meditation, prays for protection, calls in your angels, ancestors, loved ones, and guides, and begins the reading. She usually records the readings because she goes so fast; there is no way you could write everything down. She will usually deliver a litany of messages asking occasionally “Do you understand?” Then there is time for questions. It is fun, amazing, and certainly reassuring.
The Real Deal: Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who claim to be psychic who do not work in the light. They often have roadside, walk-in businesses where you come in and they fill you with fear by telling you things like “There is a woman close to you who talks about you behind your back.” WALK OUT! The best way to find a good psychic is through word of mouth. I am telling you both through personal experience, and through the testimony of others, that my mother,Lorraine Smith is the real deal.

Oh, and I should clarify… she talks to live people too.
We don’t always control the external circumstances of our lives – sometimes something happens unexpectedly.
The one thing we can control is whether or not we choose to react to it.
What we can control: When we react, we check out. We’re no longer the one in charge of ourselves. We become the effect of whatever it is we are reacting to.
It takes a great deal of discipline to remain calm and steadfast in our certainty that everything is for the best, but the more we practice it, the greater we grow our peace within.
