9-11 a spirit 'appeared' behind my boyfriend, to later have it validated that it was his step father passed over...this was the beginning of a new life for me.
9-11 a spirit 'appeared' behind my boyfriend.
When I told my boyfriend about the man, what he looked like and what the man was showing me he said: "That sounds like my step-father who passed over."
A few months later we went to his junior school fete. I walked into a classroom and saw the same man in a photograph. I called my boyfriend in and he said yes, thats him, he was a janitor at the school.
That moment it was validated, that it was his step father passed over...OOOOKKKK. So I did actually see a dead person.
I was 28, it came completely out of the blue but my whole life changed after that one experience.
A few months later we were eating dinner and I looked up at him to see another man standing behind him. This time the man spoke to me and said he was his grandfather and told information that no-one knew about until after he passed over followed by another experience with his grandmother sharing where she lived before her passing and about her personality....my boyfriend validated BOTH of these experiences.
At this point, I decided I needed to find out more about what was happening to me.
I had the opportunity to experience Reiki. Reiki is a form of energy healing. I decided to become a Reiki Practitioner and completed my Level I and II where I went on to be a part of a Reiki Practice Group that met on a weekly basis and went on for about 2 1/2yrs.
During my time in the group, I had so many amazing experiences both meeting some amazing people and placing myself in a position to hold space for others. This was an extremely empowering time. Not only was I in service of others but we were told we could not share what we felt to help the person, each person had to experience their own journey.
When I look back, what I have come to realise is those few years were CRUCIAL to my psychic and mediumistic development as I had to keep myself out of the picture with the person. It didn't stop me from receiving information, both from the person's physical body about medical issues or their emotional and mental health but also I would just know information about them and also many many times I would see their loved ones passed over around the table.
This helped me to build a toolbox of understanding without speaking or receiving validation as I had no choice but to be an open receiving vessel.
One day, my Reiki Master asked me if I wanted to work with the living or the dead and that I had to choose. He knew what I was experiencing. To appease him due to the respect I had for him I told spirit I wanted them to go away.
They did. No more experiences for about 6 months.
I had been through a difficult marriage and multiple relationship breakdowns prior to the first experience and it wasn't until spirits presence was no longer around me that I knew I didn't feel like me.
One day after that I noticed them appearing around me again and I heard a voice say to me..."We aren't going anywhere, we are here for you". What a RELIEF as they had been my rock through everything I had been through.
After that, I went on to learn Reconnecting Healing, another modality of healing where I had the most amazing experience with the afterlife. I was away in Auckland for the seminar and became extremely ill with a terrible fever. One of the nights I woke up and experienced what I have known now to be psychic surgery where I had spirit beings working on me to help to heal me to get through. The told me they were healing me and to go back to sleep which I did. At the time I was extremely afraid I would not recover or be able to get back to Australia. Luckily, with the work they did, I managed to get home and that experience has stayed with me for some time and was yet more proof in the fact that the afterlife is indeed real.
After returning to Australia I continued to practice Reiki and Reconnective Healing all while I kept feeling, sensing spirit all around me. I could feel their energy just like you would feel a normal person standing next to you on a train.
I started going to meditation groups to uncover what was happening to me, with the information I was receiving and what to do with it.
I didn't understand the term psychic or medium until one of the meditation groups I attended I had another experience with a spirit man and the teacher said to me, "Lysa, do you know what you are doing?" I responded with a "No." "You are a medium. You can communicate with people who have passed over." Right there I could put a name, a label to what was going on and who I was.
From there I started attending psychic and mediumship development workshops to understand and hone my skills more.
I was reading everything I possibly could about it as well to understand. Then I decided to start my own developmental meditation group.
Initially, I ran a meditation group twice a week and after 2 years it dropped to one group of regulars for another year or so until I wrapped up the group to focus on readings for the public.
It took me 10 years from that first experience to the point where I knew I had consistency with my connections to be able to start charging and doing readings.
About 2 years later I did my first show (platform demonstration) where I did readings in front of an audience and I loved it.
It felt very easy for me. It took me some time to really understand how the connections work in a group scenario but I knew I had to keep doing it because it made me feel so good and its a bit like when you find your favourite music and you just want to keep listening to it because it inspires you.
At this point I had spirit tell me they wanted to keep working with me and developing me one on one and to no longer attend workshops so I followed their guidance.
I also started doing readings for groups of people which has extended my development even further.
The whole time I was developing my psyche and my connections with spirit I was also diving deep into personal development so I could become the best version of who I could be to also help people with their life and path.
I found that when people wanted a reading or the validation they also needed guidance and support and through my personal development journey I am able to help people with this.
For years before that initial experience I was living life with internal turmoil, pain and hatred of myself and the world I lived in feeling as though the best option would be for me to end it.
To be honest, I didn't want to live any more and have tried numerous times to take my life.
That moment when spirit appeared to me...it changed EVERYTHING!
I started learning about who I was, what I wanted along with my journey with spirit as described above.
I binged watched OPRAH, read a tonne of personal and spiritual development books, attended courses and workshops and just about anything I could get my hands on to take me to the next level.
It became an addiction of sorts, but one I am truly GRATEFUL for.
I was drinking excessively during this time and it wasn't until I reached a point where spirit wanted me to move further with my spirit work (and so did I) that they again appeared to me in a force of numbers to say to me...'Get off that stuff of we won't work with you' (stuff meaning alcohol).
At that moment...I gave up drinking. I still have the drink when I feel but I gave up the addiction and learned how to manage myself effectively.
