I was a sceptic once :-)
Hi Erin! I remember the first time I had a reading with a medium...My words were short and clipped, and when he asked for confirmation/affirmation, I would answer yes or no, and no more. Luckily, he was able to get information from the other side and share it with me that made me an absolute believer immediately. I'm so glad I had that experience as it opened me up to practicing communication on my own and my life is better for it. I guess it's just hard at first, because there are a lot of fraudsters out there, but I would say to to anyone considering a reading that a medium/psychic who is willing to share so much knowledge of "the other side", as you have, and as my guy did, is probably legit. Take care!

I'm not so much a skeptic of psychic ability as I am of individuals who profess to have the ability but don't. I've had psychic readings done as a skeptic and found them to be highly accurate, so I'm open to the possibility of it at all times. And oddly for a skeptic, I've read the cards for myself with people who have absolutely no belief in psychic abilities and been dead-on. So dead-on they were scared.
I'm very much open to the possibility that psychic abilities exist simply because I'm aware that absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. I was born a synaesthete, and when I was born, synaesthesia was regarded as a result of behavioural conditioning and didn't exist in scientific terms. A skeptic would've told me that I saw letters and numbers and music in colour because I was conditioned that way. Science, however, developed the means to understand synaesthesia and it became a recognised neurological phenomenon. By the time I was about fourteen the whole community was going nuts over it.
I see pretty much everything in that light now: just because it can't be proved now, doesn't mean it won't become scientific fact next year, two years or ten years down the line.

Okay, well I enjoyed this article, made a lot of sense to me. Of course it's possible to block a psychic if you really want to! The nature of existence is to respect that type of freewill.
Question about deep meditation: should one try to find a place of silence within themselves or pose questions to their guides in the meditation?
Ah, I just found this article: How often and in what way should I meditate? Perhaps you ought to link to that article in this latest blog entry?
Thanks again for providing this great info!

I have a lot of respect for the skeptics who cross my threshold for readings and figure that they're the ones taking all the risks because I'm in my comfort zone. I see them as little 'doubting Thomas's' desperately seeking proof of something they want to believe, otherwise why do they bother. That way they're longer intimidating, rather like a public speaker visualizing his audience naked. In saying that, it is much easier for me because lacking Erin's courage, I rarely step out into the public arena where 'balls of brass' are regarded more highly than genuine honesty so I 'take my hat off' to her on a regular basis.
Keep socking it to them Erin
Over time, I've found that the hardest nuts to crack have become my greatest advocates.
I have less tolerance for the psychic 'groupies' who jump from one reader to another hanging on their every word without really listening or thinking for themselves.
