Simply put, Brian is a medium who connects you with the “Other Side”. He is conveying with compassion, love, and humor the messages of comfort and hope, which our family and pets in the spirit world wish to share with us.
What inspired you to start your psychic reading business?
I actually began receiving communication from the spirit world when I was a boy of about six years of age. At the time, what I was experiencing terrified me because I was too young to understand it. I grew up in a fundamentalist religious household, where we were taught that everything unexplainable was automatic “the devil.”
As I grew older and kept having more and more interactions with spirits of the deceased, though, I came to understand that I was being called to bridge the gap between the physical world and the spirit world in order to help the bereaved find closure and comfort in knowing that their loved ones have actually never left them.
Death just doesn’t happen. We are taught to believe that death is an ending, but really it is more of a metamorphosis than anything else. Since I began working as a medium (and no–I didn’t sit around as a child, dreaming that I would end up talking to dead people for a living), I even sometimes sense my own loved ones and pets in spirit, who come in to help me in my work. I honestly couldn’t ask for a greater blessing.
What services do you offer?
I am a spirit medium, meaning that I communicate with the spirits of the deceased. It is important to know, though, that no medium can force this connection to occur: it is entirely up to the spirit as to what they choose to say or not say.
I think of myself as more like a language interpreter: the spirit talks to me in one language (i.e., feelings, mental impressions, images), and it is then my job to attempt to reassemble the message from one language into another for my client. I also offer personal mentorship services for those wishing to develop or strengthen their own mediumship abilities.
What is the most popular type of reading that customers are looking for? What are the most common concerns that interest them?
Many clients initially come to me wanting to hear from a particular family member or pet in the spirit world and are surprised when someone they actually weren’t expecting to hear from also makes an appearance. I’ve had a number of these clients, who later end up training in mediumship with me–several of whom are now working professionally as mediums.
Are some types of psychic readings more demanding or difficult than others?
I used to offer psychic intuitive readings, such as those intended to give clarity on love matters. Indeed, I tend to be quite skilled in this, from past feedback I’ve received. I stopped offering this service, though and chose to focus entirely on spirit communication. Often, I found that some–not all–clients seeking guidance on love matters get quite upset when you tell them what they need to hear, which is not necessarily always what they want to hear.
Some of the psychic sessions are still performed in person. What about you? How has your work been affected by the pandemic?
Many people expect an in-person reading to somehow be “more accurate” or of better quality, but I find that I actually work better when I am not looking at my client. In times when I have done readings in person, I usually don’t even look at my clients. I want to be totally and completely focused upon the message I am getting from the spirit world!
In this field, it is often thought that word-of-mouth and personal recommendations are the most important when picking a psychic reader – is this true?
I definitely think that they’re important. I often ask clients how they heard about what I do, and inevitably they end up telling me that a previous client recommended me.
What is the best part of your job?
I’ll never forget one previous client, who told me “you helped me more in thirty minutes than years of therapy did.” I would never recommend that a client quit therapy, but to me, it feels incredibly validating when clients remark to me about how much our work together has changed them for the better. It’s the reason I keep doing what I do.
