To explain and illuminate this information, first we need to understand what happens to us when we leave the earth plane. When we die our physical body dies, but our astral body lives on and this body which is our spiritual essence goes onto an astral plane that is very close to the earth or physical plane. There are many unseen realms all around us which include departed souls and also spirit beings that have never walked the earth.
In fact billions of spirit forms exists all around us, most of us are blissfully unaware of this due to our sixth sense being undeveloped.
A psychic medium will for the purposes of a reading, raise his or her frequency or vibration using their minds, they will raise their consciousness up into the higher realms where the vibrations on the astral plane hold the mind and personalities of the departed souls. The medium then opens the communication lines and channels the information through for the sitter. I must add that this for experienced mediums can act in the blink of an eye. Sometimes prior to a psychic medium reading the spirit linked to the sitter will come through and make contact the night before to the medium.
The information which comes through is then called an evidential reading, this is where the medium seeks to reassure the sitter that they have in fact contacted a friend or relative who now resides on the astral plane following death. The sort of information which would effect this would be things like shared memories, information about the persons character, their physical appearance, items which are known for a particular memory or time, anything which is clear and defines that connection has been made. Good psychic mediums can usually bring the names through too.
The medium is able to communicate with the mind of the deceased to prove to the sitter that they have not died and that they simply live on without a physical shell – as yet never proven by science! The personality of the departed person survives it is simply the physical shell that dies as is the law of the life death cycle.
If you are experiencing a psychic medium reading but have requested not to receive information about lost loved ones then the reader shall simply use their spirit guides and possibly other guides to answer your questions. A good psychic medium will tune into your energy and know what your main concern is and what is most pressing for you at that time though it is very important not to be blocked, to try and test the reader as this will simply stop the flow of information and you may be in the position of having a reading which didn’t connect.
Most companies who are worth their salt will place you with a different reader should you experience a non connection. I would also strongly urge that you let the information flow to you and listen to it. If you do not like what is coming forth, it will be the truth if it is coming from spirit side – who are there to help us on the mortal plain, you must look within and be strong if an unsavoury truth is to be faced and not blame the reader!
