FREQUENT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What is Past Life Regression Journey?
Since we have all lived previous lives and are souls on a journey often we bring in with us to this life, patterns and connections to places and people for our soul’s learning. In past life regression therapy when an issue or pattern of behaviour is causing difficulties in your current life the connections and lessons from that past lifetime can be learnt and released bringing you freedom.
How can I learn to meditate?
Most times by joining a class and with a good teacher that can take you through a guided relaxation and then into a guided meditation which allows you to take the time to just permit yourself to experience meditation. Often when trying to meditate alone we don’t take the time to breathe and relax before drifting off; we have expectation instead of being in a state of ‘allowing’. Everyone can learn to meditate and gain huge benefits from ‘switching off’ and being in a place of peace.
What is Chakra Balancing?
Our chakras are energy centres that transform energy that comes to us from the Creator to support and keep us connected to the Divine. These energy centres act as transformers converting this energy into energy that our bodies use. Our emotional and spiritual trauma that we hold within our aura can and does pollute our system thereby making us venerable to low level energies and attract to us emotional and physical disharmony.
How are readings done? What method (e.g. oracle cards, jewellery etc) is used?
In all sessions, I just tune into the Angels and Spirit Guides to receive the highest level of guidance I can for my client. I don’t use physical tools e.g., tarot cards, runes, although a pendulum is used only on certain occasions which can be useful, at other times maybe photos, jewellery, etc.
The way a session is conducted depends on you, the client and the help, guidance or direction you are seeking. Whatever is done occurs because I am guided to do it. Your questions are important as in this way I am able to be of greater benefit to you by addressing your "burning questions or queries", as there is no need for mystery.
How much information do I need to provide before a reading session starts?
Theoretically, none at all but this is up to you the client and the issue at hand. Sometimes people need to tell their story, express concerns or state parameters before they’re ready to receive help. A person always knows which category they fall into and what matters is that the client’s needs are met. How much information you present depends on what you need to express before the session can truly begin. Burning questions, concerns and objectives are best aired so that they don’t run interference with the session. I will always guide you if I need more or less and I tend not to retain much of what a client says anyway.
How can I tell if a reading session is accurate?
I strive to provide you with a positive experience and I believe that you should come away from your reading feeling uplifted and empowered to conquer whatever the future may bring. I ensure you that my caring and compassionate nature comes with a strong desire to help you. When the “nerve” of a matter is hit upon intuitively, your body often starts releasing or shifting in a way that you will notice.
How accurate are the timings given in readings, etc?
Be aware that knowledge changes outcomes. Also, due to free will, the timing of many things can change. If I see a particular date or time frame, anything you do after talking to that psychic can still change your fate. A simple shift in your thought can change the outcome of any situation. A change in any of the parties involved their thoughts or actions may change the outcome of a situation. Since we are unable to control other people's thoughts and actions, I may only be able to base a prediction on your current state of affairs and state of mind. Predictions are based on an assessment of the energy around your situation.
The above said, the timings that are given in Psychic readings are usually very reliable and accurate.
What level of detail/s is given in spirit mediumship readings?
For those clients who want to communicate with their beloved ones that have passed over, I will always be given the symptoms just prior to them passing as I do experience the discomfort of the pain. I will feel and see their presence, smell a fragrance or taste a food or drink and give all messages and guidance as given to me for you the client or your family.
What’s involved in spiritual development?
These workshops or courses are relaxed and friendly that deliver a lot of in-depth detail and many opportunities to practice and develop your skills. People usually develop noticeably because of the group energy in these development workshops or courses, with real enhancements in their ability to hear, see and sense things.
Can anyone develop intuitively, psychically and spiritually?
Yes. The issue isn’t whether anyone can; it’s whether you really want to. Like filling up your car with petrol: most adults can do it yet know little about the engine. Most people, if not all, receive guidance and intuitive cues - visual, audio or felt sensations. “Gut feeling” is a common manifestation of clairsentience and a regular cue in people’s decision-making. It’s not so much that some people aren’t intuitive; it’s whether they want to expand their natural intuitive skills or not.
Another point to consider is that intention is everything in the world of spirituality and intuitive work. If you want to develop intuitively and you let the universe know this i.e., share your desire with that which you believe in, the universe tends to hear that and starts helping you attain your goal. This doesn’t mean that things unfold overnight necessarily! Just know the universe assists anyone if and as It’s given the chance to and usually even if It’s not!.
Things to consider as you decide to release and heal energetically through Reiki, Spiritual Healing, Future Vision or Past Life Regression:
Sometimes, it may seem as if energy work is easy and pleasant, but this isn’t always the case. Releasing and healing can bring up memories, issues, thoughts and/or feelings that are painful or challenging, of which we’re not prepared for. It’s important therefore, before you begin your energy work, to consider whether you may need assistance or support to release and heal.
Energy work is real and can affect all levels of being, including the need to process emotional or perceptual issues. When you move into energy or release work of any kind, it’s also worth considering the time and space limits you place around it. Sometimes, things can take time to fully release and it’s important to consider this when you book a session. Think about the time you’ve allocated to your healing work and allow yourself to fully benefit from all that wants to come
What is a Clairvoyant, Medium, Psychic etc?
The words “Clairvoyance” and “Psychic” are often used to refer to many different kinds of paranormal sensory experiences, here are more specific titles:
Clairvoyance is the ability to gain information about an object, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses, a form of extra-sensory perception. The ability to see things either in their third eye or literally that is not physically present. A person said to have the ability of clairvoyance is referred to as a clairvoyant.
Clairsentience (feeling/touching) is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of feeling. Generally the term refers to a person who can feel the vibration of other people. There are many different degrees of clairsentience ranging from the perception of diseases of other people to the thoughts or emotions of other people. Instead, a very vivid feeling can form, e.g. the medium or psychic actually literally feels the injury or say illness including the manner of passing.
Empath is also a term used to refer to a person with a feeling expanded sensitivity or clairsentience.
Clairaudience (hearing/listening), is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires information by paranormal auditory means. Clairaudience may refer not to actual perception of sound, but may instead indicate impressions of the “inner mental ear” similar to the way many people think words without having auditory impressions. But it may also refer to actual perception of sounds such as voices, tones, or noises which are not apparent to other humans or to recording equipment. For instance, a clairaudient person might hear the voices or thoughts of the spirits of persons who are deceased. Clairalliance (smelling) is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of smelling. An example of this may be a smell that has some connection either to the person passed over or a guide or place.
Claircognisance (knowing) is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of intrinsic knowledge. It is the ability to know something without knowing how or why you know it.
Clairgustance (tasting) Is defined as a form of extra-sensory perception where a person tastes a substance without putting anything in one’s mouth. Similar to Clairalliance this often involves experiencing a taste which is relevant to a loved one passed over but may also be diet or health issues relevant to those present.
Psychometry is the practice of holding another person’s personal possession and ‘reading’ the object. It is as if you somehow are able to see, through touching it. Everything is made up of energy and they are all tools for Psychics.
Psychometry is the ability to sense and feel the history of an object or the person that it belongs to through the emanations of energy from the object.
This kind of reading can provide a deeper insight into a situation or person. Psychometry is the reading of a personal item or belonging, e.g. a piece of jewellery like a ring, the reader takes the item, feels the energy and proceeds to give over information, sometimes it's very direct in response, sometimes only colours or feeling may come through in relation to the person.
Medium In the field of parapsychology the term “mediumship” denotes the ability of a person to experience and/or to tell others about their experiences of contact with spirits of the dead. By experiencing these visions, the medium generally is used to facilitate communication between non-mediumistic people and spirits who may have messages to share. For example listen and relate conversations with those passed over to others in the physical.
Trance Medium is able go into a trance and speak without knowledge of what is being said; allow a spirit to enter his or her body and speak through it; or relay messages from the spirits those who wish to contact them with the help of a physical tool, such as a writing pad. Also referred to as a *channel it is also a means of receiving messages from a “teaching spirit” of advanced wisdom. It is more common for a trance medium to operate within a trained group rather than individual readings. *Note: from my point of view, in the same way we are all psychic, so too are we all ‘channels’ for energy and information, even if there are varying degrees and levels of expertise.
What is the difference between a Psychic Reading and a Mediumship Reading?
Psychic Readings provide psychically obtained information about different aspects of your life such as relationships, career, travel, family and so much more. This information is contained in the energy of your aura. Psychic Readings relate specifically to your past, present and near future. Information about what is blocking you at the moment and stopping you from moving forward in life will be discovered and ways to improve your current situation will be discussed.
Mediumship Readings are about connecting with the people closest to you who have passed into the Spirit world. The information in a Mediumship Reading comes from the people in Spirit, and the purpose of this information is to confirm for you that your loved ones do live on in Spirit and that their souls are very much alive. Mediumship Readings are usually sought by people who are grieving the loss of a loved one, whereas Psychic Readings provide the client with detailed information about themselves and their future.
How can I prepare for my Psychic Reading?
If having a Skype or a Phone reading, the best way to prepare is to book a time when you will not be disturbed by anything or anyone around you. Turn off the radio and television and get a notepad and pen or record on your phone. Sit quietly and focus yourself in order to have an Open Mind for the reading. Take notes as the information comes through in the reading and don't wait for something you specifically want to hear. Try to be open to receiving all of the information about your life and write everything down. Small everyday events will be given to you in the reading such as details about your home as well as the bigger issues you're waiting to hear about. There is plenty of time during your Psychic Reading to ask the pressing questions or issues you desire clarity on. To get the best out of your reading please remember that the more relaxed and calm you are, the more information that will be available to read. Going in with no expectations means you are more likely to have a great reading! If having a face to face reading, please try to arrive 10 minutes prior to your booking or on time, and be as calm and relaxed as possible. You do not want to be rushing in late and stressed for your reading.
How can I prepare for my Mediumship Reading?
Preparing for a Mediumship Reading is similar to preparing for a Psychic Reading. You need to have an Open Mind to what comes through for you from the Other Side. Remember that anyone can come through who is connected to you, your family and your friends. It is important to let the Spirits who naturally appear during your reading convey their messages to you, rather than impatiently waiting for a desired message. If you are desperately seeking to hear from a particular person you can let me know their name and/or relation to you and I can tune my energy into connecting with that person there is no guarantee that any Medium can connect to a particular Spirit.
It helps to have a good grasp of your family history when having a Mediumship Reading as the person who comes through first may reference their life on Earth by stating where they lived, to whom they were connected, or perhaps give the cause of their passing. Please remember that communication with the Spirit world is controlled by those in the Spirit world, not by the medium and therefore will be more interested in passing on the information they want to give you. This is a time to relax and enjoy the amazing connection to your loved ones and the Spirit world.
How is it possible to do a reading for me over the telephone or Skype?
Your personal energy, Aura or Life Force Energy is all that is needed to have a reading, you don't even need to be physically present at the time of your reading because your energy is naturally picked-up psychically. When you have a Mediumship Reading Natalie raises her energy to connect with the energy of your loved ones in Spirit who lower their energy at the same time. The two energies blend halfway and this facilitates the process of Mediumship and Spirit communication. Don't worry that your loved ones wouldn't know how to do any of this as that's where Angels and Spirit Guides come in to make the communication process possible. Again please remember to find a quiet place to be for the reading away from other people as their energy will interfere with the reading and your concentration what they are doing interferes with the reading.
How often should I have a Psychic Reading?
An excellent Psychic Reading will give you enough insight and direction for at least the next six to twelve months. That said, some people like to have Psychic Readings more often in order to gain knowledge and insight on a range of topics. Even though you will leave with a clear idea of what lies ahead for you, fresh information and more detail does come through with each successive reading. Every 3 - 6 months would be a good guide, but you must decide for yourself if you feel you need guidance at this time.
What proof is there for Mediumship?
The proof for Mediumship lies solely in the evidence that the Spirits convey to you in your Mediumship Reading. Validations are given in the specific information that comes through from the Spirit world which often reveals how the spirit passed away, where they lived and travelled, what sort of work they did here, what their personality is like and many more detailed pieces of information which validate for you that they are speaking with Natalie during your reading and continue to watch over your life on Earth. Nothing harmful ever happens in a Mediumship Reading, your loved ones in the Spirit world simply communicate their thoughts and images to me to pass onto you. Spirits love to share their personalities and character with you along with memories you shared.
What is the waiting period for a reading?
Our office receives many requests for readings each week, and requests are processed in the order in which they are received. The waiting list for a reading usually varies from one to two weeks sometimes up to four weeks or longer, depending on the volume of requests, and interstate live shows and festivals, or overseas commitments. You will usually receive a response within three working days of your request to arrange a date and time. The best way to book is to use the online contact system sending your request with your preferred date and time and Natalie will respond with what is available.
How long after my loved one have passed should I wait before having a reading?
The optimum time is that you wait is at least 3 months however I have read for some clients much sooner just remember that you are going through the grieving process. The grieving process is important and necessary for you to come to terms with the loss of your loved one. Often the Spirit will also need time to adjust to the changes they have gone through. In the meantime, please know that your loved one is surrounded by people who love them and are in a safe, loving environment.
Important things you need to know!!
Natalie has a zero tolerance policy. Clients who are rude, aggressive or disrespectful will be asked to leave immediately with no refund!
If payment has not been received at least two days prior to your appointment, your appointment will be cancelled.
If you arrive late for your appointment, Natalie will read for you for as long as she can, but cannot keep the next person waiting past their allotted time.
Please do not book an appointment if you only want to get their name and not interested in hearing anything else. Spirit chooses what they want to tell you and the experience of communicating with them and reconnecting should be cherished.
Please do not book a psychic reading with Natalie if you want someone to tell you that you are going to win the lottery and marry Mr Right! Please book a reading if you really want to hear the truth!
