Telephone/Live Readins vs In-Person Readings. Which is better?
An Angel reading is a valuable opportunity for you to receive
the loving assistance and often life changing guidance from your Angels
and your Spirit Guides in which you will learn how to transform your life.
An Angel reading is a peaceful experience filled with love that will inspire, uplift you and make you feel deeply understood perhaps for the first time in your life. It is a beautiful way to receive love and gain clarity from your Angels and Spirit Guides. With their loving guidance you will learn how to make
each moment of your life count so you can create a better tomorrow.
During your Angel reading you will feel relaxed, loved and supported as you receive the loving assistance and often life changing guidance from your Angels. Your passed loved ones, your Spirit Guides and even your beloved pets may even reveal themselves to you. Your spirit will be uplifted and you will reconnect and be assured of the Angels’ constant presence in your life.
During your Angel reading the medium connects with your Guardian Angels, Spirit Guides, your loved ones and yes, even your beloved pets. These loving beings will support and guide you to live the life you’ve always wanted and dreamed of. They will help you release any and all fears that thus far have blocked your path of living a life that is love-filled and fulfilled.
The angels are powerful divine beings who are nonjudgmental, loving helpers available to help us with all our earthly concerns. They are not bound by earthly constraints which means they can be with as many people who call upon them.
The angels do not care if you belong to a religion; it is their extreme pleasure to help you with any issue, large or “small.” They do not have egos and their goal is peace on earth, one person at a time.
These loving beings will offer you guidance and answer any questions you may have. What is your soul longing for?
Why am I here? Who am I? Career or a relationship change? A move? A reaffirmation of love? The Angels reveal
it all and help you find the answers you seek. Are you not sure what to ask? No worries, the Angels are always very
happy to offer their perspective on your life. They also want you to know that they can help you through
guidance but you are the one responsible for action.
Your angels already know all about you and will
relay the needed information to the medium.
Messages from the Angels are always gentle, loving to give guidance and direction. The Angels love to talk about the
grand scheme of things and the bigger pictures. The Angels
will definitely give you straight answers but they also want you
to see how things connect and they tend to nudge you to get
on your true life path. They might not always tell you what you
want to hear, but they will tell you what you NEED to hear!
The Angels wisdom does not involve telling you what to do.
Since we have the Law of Free Will in place here on Earth, it is
easy for circumstances to change based on different courses
of action. Impulsiveness and impatience tend to get the best of some humans and we tend to choose out of negative emotions
such as fear, dependence, anger, jealousy and impatience instead
of relaxing and letting the Divine take the lead. There are many possibilities out there waiting to manifest, it just depends
on what actions are taken.
Angel Readings provide healing, joy, empowerment, clarity and direction and are, at times, life-changing
and transformative. Facilitating personal, emotional and spiritual growth, they help one deal with life’s
challenges and uncertainty and are a very useful tool in providing confirmation for one’s own intuition.
Readings are always delivered in a loving, honest and positive way that guides a person towards
increased optimism, joy, peace, balance, and empowerment.
These spirit-driven encounters will leave you with a renewed sense of ‘you’re not alone’, when it comes to
dealing with the issues that surround aspects of life in areas such as love, career, health, finances, relationships
and family. The angels will gift you with their elevated perspective in order to support you through the
process of handling life’s challenges, while encouraging you through times of change.
There are a few different readings types available for in-person readings but the main three
are a Medium Reading, Combo Reading and Spiritual Psychic Intuitive Reading.
During a Medium Reading the main focus is to connect with your loved ones that have passed.
A Spiritual Psychic Intuitive Reading is for people in need of guidance, but they do not
necessarily need to connect with a loved one at this time.
A Combo Reading is a mixture of a Medium and Spiritual Psychic Intuitive Reading. This is the most popular
reading because it brings the best features of the other two reading styles together in one reading.
Private In-Person readings are offered at the medium's home, unless arranged otherwise. You can book
a reading in time frames anywhere from 15 minutes to 60 minutes, with the optimal length of time is
usually 45-60 minutes. Although there are shorter readings available, those readings are best
suited for telephone, email or group reading sessions.
Please allow for your reading to unfold as it needs to. The spirit world (your loved ones), the angelic realms,
and the divine spirit already know what you need to receive. Trust they will provide you with everything you
need to hear and experience in your session with the medium you have selected to have your reading with.
During a medium reading, the medium will
connect with your departed loved ones and provide you with messages and healing for both you and those the spiritual realm.
The medium will bring forward strong evidence, validation, healing, and loving messages from the other side.
The mediums that provide this type of reading are evidential mediums
(provides strong evidence), and mental mediums (abilities to receive mental impression and images
from the deceased).
The mediums receive information
on who they are, how they passed
and how they look!
They will bring through their personality, and this is the most important validation there is.
Spirit provides the mediums with information about life events and many times they will provide their name
and/or the names of family and friends. Often spirit provides information that is completely unique
to you and your relationship you had with them when they were alive.
During a Spiritual Psychic Intuitive Reading the medium doesn't connect with loved ones during this time.
Their focus is on you, and your soul's journey. This information this reading provides is mostly likely to
encompass a wide area, such as, personal, spiritual events, past, present, probably future events, and
information for your souls growth. This information may also included career, health, and relationship. The
information in the medium receives comes from the Divine source and the mediums the spiritual realm will
only provide information that is beneficial to you and promotes your highest personal and spiritual growth.
A Combo reading consists of a Medium Reading and a Spiritual Psychic Reading combined together during one
session. The first half of this reading the medium will normally connect with your loved ones first and during
the second half of the reading they will connect with their own spiritual team of guides, spiritual teachers and the Angels, to provide you with loving messages that are intended to guide you on your life path and promote your
spiritual growth. However sometimes the order is reversed depending on if your loved ones decide to come
through right away or to wait till other information has been given to you first. If this is the case they come
through during the second half of the reading giving you their messages at that time.
Its also important to let you know, your loved ones in a reading will not tell you how to live your life or provide
you with information that may leave you with a heavy heart or feelings of negativity and fear.
They will talk about their lives, their passing, what has happened since they have passed, and perhaps they
may even provide you with some quality advice. However, they are not going to tell you what to do, and they
are not coming through to give you predictions. This is your life and you must make your own decisions.
They will give you guidance when and if it is needed.
Think about this. What would you talk about if you had a chance to speak with a departed loved one once again? Memories or things you did together? or would you talk about your finances and love life? What is talked about in a reading is really up to your loved ones, and it's truly amazing, they already know what you need to hear.
Regardless of the type of reading you decide to have the The medium normally leaves a few minutes at
the end of your session to address any additional questions you might have for your loved ones, in
regards to the guidance you have already received or additional
guidance you may still wish to receive.
When you are selecting your reading, it’s important to keep in mind the connection with Spirit is a sacred
one. It’s a three way link. While we as mediums can open the channel, whether it is with you in front
of us or in an over the phone conversation - it’s still a conversation - and whenever and however you
can be to be most comfortable for that conversation - that is the best option.
The accuracy of your reading won’t change either way.
This is the same type of reading as an in-person reading, the only difference is the medium travels to your
home to give you your reading. This type of reading is good if you are unable to leave your home or if the
medium does not have location you can meet to have your reading. The great thing about in-person readings
is the ability to build a relationship with the medium face-to-face. In-Person readings have a more personal
quality because you are sitting in same room with each other. Each medium gets information differently
and will give you messages via the methods they are most comfortable with.
An online reading takes place via Skype or similar video link. It is carried out in real time.
It is similar to a telephone/ live reading but with two-way visual contact. It is much more like an

of objects. The psychometrist can acquire information from the present or the past and details of the owner from an object.
If the owner is deceased, the time that he or she lived can.
be ascertained by reading the energy that is attached to
the object. One of the most positive applications of psychometry is the finding of missing persons.
From the perspective of accuracy - telephone readings and in-person readings are equal.
In fact, in the teaching of mediumship to students, telephone readings, Skype readings and
in-person readings, all fall into the same category.
A Live Reading is a reading where you have the energy of Spirit (the messenger) and the energy of the
Person (the message recipient) together, all in one place, all at the same time.
A live reading is an active, three-way link between yourself, the medium and those in Spirit. The other type of
reading is a distance reading, where the messenger (Spirit) and the medium deliver the information to
the message recipient (you) after their connection is complete, these are generally used for email or
written messages to be delivered at another date, such as a book or publication.
A Live Reading is a live reading so long as all three parties are meeting at the same place, at the same time -
even if that place is a non-physical virtual place - such as a telephone or webcall. It doesn’t matter if a Live
Reading takes place in the same room, or thousands of miles away, because it is not the physical bodies of
two people that are connecting in a reading - it is the mind, hearts and Spirits of two people who
are connecting in a reading.
And this, can happen anywhere.
You, can be anywhere. As long as your own Spirit, your Soul, is there to listen - the message gets through -
and that’s the most important part - that you receive the messages you need to receive from Spirit.
Your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels do not currently have a physical body on this Earth, thus, there is little
that binds them from coming to your medium, to your reading, regardless of where they or you are. Without a
physical body, they are not subject to the same limitations you may have to getting to a medium - such as having
one in your local area, in the case of an in-person reading, or having access to a telephone or
computer, in the case of a telephone reading.
They do not have to worry about the cost of travel. Or the finances of a reading. Or rush hour traffic, delays
and accidents along the way - all things that could prevent you from meeting with a medium for an in-person
reading. In fact, all they need to know is with whom they are meeting with and when to be there.
That’s right - as soon as your reading is set up - your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels are free to travel
to get to your reading, because they know where they are going and when to be there. As long as they know
who they are going to, your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels can travel to your medium - regardless of distance.
After that, the difference between a telephone reading and an
in-person is simply a matter of personal preference.
While in-person readings are truly a magical experience, many psychic mediums really enjoy telephone readings.
Without a physical person directly in front of them, it is often easier to connect, stay focused and streamline the information out from those in Spirit who are present.
Many psychic mediums can get a clearer connection with only Spirit in their physical space (the messenger)
and you, the message recipient, in another physical space. Some people are simply better at concentrating
when they are physically alone - and it’s often easier!
Which again, doesn't mean more or less accurate. It means that for the medium, it may be easier to concentrate,
which wouldn't generally affect to the type of information coming through (equal in accuracy), but it could
affect the quantity, speed and flow at which it does come in - meaning, in some cases, you could actually
receive more information.
In fact, having you non-present in a physical space in the reading, can actually help reduce accidental biasing
of your message, too - if that is something that concerns you. In a telephone reading, since you are not
present in physical form, the psychic medium cannot see anything about who you are or what you are about,
thus, they couldn’t cold ‘read’ you, or infer information from your appearance that could bias a clear
message from Spirit.
Telephone readings often allows the psychic medium to be more focused on receiving your messages
from Spirit and can reduce potential bias from getting into your messages, by accidentally picking up
on clues from your physical appearance or being.
Many readings are emotional. When connecting with Spirit, sensitive feelings, memories and thoughts come
forward, and while healing, readings can be vulnerable experiences. Sometimes being vulnerable simply feels
better in the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas (if you want) and curled up on the couch. Connecting
at home, while on the telephone, can actually help you relax, listen and focus on the message more deeply.
Also, with a telephone reading, you can avoid any unforeseen potential appointment delays on the way there,
and won't have have to worry about being late to your session due to travel or traffic, or have to deal with
combating the feeling of focus from being uncomfortable in a new and unfamiliar place.
Just like the reverse example above, without a psychic medium who you may have never met before,
sitting right in front of you, in your close personal space - for some, it is easier to listen, absorb and take
in the information, when you are simply listening to it rather than being in the presence of another person.
Without a physical person in front of you and connecting with Spirit over the telephone at the comfort
of your location - you find yourself in a more relaxed, centered and calming space than anywhere else
on Earth. And that’s the most important part.
To get the most out of your reading, the best thing you can do is to be focused, ready to listen and calm.
When you are in a calm, centered and focused frame of mind - only then, can you truly receive anything which
is being given to you - including communications from those you love and want to hear from, in Spirit.
The real difference in telephone readings and in person readings is not accuracy - Spirit will still speak to
us whether or not you are at a reading in physical body - but rather, it is the answer to this question:
What will put you in the best frame of mind when receiving the message?
Anything you can do to maximize your ability to relax, center and calm down for your appointment -
will improve your reading and your ability to focus on the messages that are coming through.
If you think you’ll be most comfortable connecting with a Loved One while at home, cozied up on the
couch - book a telephone reading. If you think, you’ll be most comfortable, directly across from medium’s
table - book an in-person reading. Or, try both and see which one works best for you.
When you are selecting your reading, it’s important to keep in mind the connection with Spirit is a
sacred one. It’s a three way link. While we as mediums can open the channel, whether it is with you in front
of us or in an over the phone conversation - it’s still a conversation - and whenever and however you
can be to be most comfortable for that conversation - that is the best option.
The accuracy of your reading won’t change either way.
Group events can be a great excuse to get together with friends and family
A friends and family gathering is a private gathering in an individual’s home or business. Friends and family
come together for messages of hope, joy, and healing. Participants receive direct validations, stories,
evidence, and even humor from passed loved ones.
They can be organized as parties or family reunions and participants enjoy friendship, support and sometimes
even a meal or appetizers. These gatherings can be kept smaller in size for detailed messages for all, or
they can be larger and even gallery-style gatherings held privately.
Smaller groups will run between 90 minutes and two hours, and the larger groups run closer to the two hours.
When communication with passed loved ones slows (typically around the 90 minute mark in larger groups)
the medium will stay up to two full hours to answer questions, offer guidance, and
help participants process the experience.
CFOS President, Fellowship Medium, Teacher, Healer, Author and Student Reverend
Joann had her first experience with Spirit while attending an Evangelist service in her hometown with a family friend around the age of 13. She was not use to attending religious services so when the audience was directed to stand up at one point in the service she did not understand why, she simply followed the crowd and stood up too. It was in that moment that she experienced what she understood to be God literally fill her body with a loving energy of light. While completely engulfed in the beautiful energy she thought "If this is what religion is all about I'm all for it". This started her search for spiritual understanding and set the foundation for her journey to Spiritualism.
Searching for answers Joann found a small group of women called the Tri-ethereal Group. This group worked
with the spiritual realm and one of the three women was a trance channel. We often held circles and received
guidance from spirit. This is also where she received experience of working with spirits that had not moved
onto the light. This was exciting work to help individuals dealing with active spirits in their homes. The group
was called to help discern what was happening at the homes and after doing so helped the spirits cross
over to the light. This was very rewarding work because it helped the families that were dealing with
the spirits and helped the spirits finally move on and no longer be trapped on our plane.
Years later spirit lead Joann to the Britten Memorial Spiritual Church and this is where she began official
training as a medium and took various spiritual development classes and educational classes on Spiritualism.
Working with spirit Joann had been writing out messages she was receiving from spirit and eventually as
her confidence grew she began sharing these writings with the congregation not just her classmates.
She delivered these messages as a lecturer for the church and was a student medium as well. Eventually
she served on the board for the church before spirit lead her to the next leg of her spiritual journey.
Upon spirit's direct Joann branched into teaching others spiritual development classes and how to communicate
with the Angels and the spiritual realm. During this same period of time she was asked by spirit to write a book.
She had been writing with spirit for a long time already so she happily agreed not knowing what she would
be writing. Working with spirit she transcribed the book "God Speaks - Memoirs for God". Although she has
not yet published the book she knows spirit is moving her in that direction and is looking
forward to sharing the words of wisdom with others.
With confidence growing she began to give private readings upon spirit's encouragement. Working with
spirit in this way is extremely rewarding and being able to help others with various aspects of their life is
a wonderful experience. A private reading is a longer version of a message you might receive while
attending a Spiritualist Church service. The big difference is that the person getting the reading gets
a longer, more in depth reading but the source of the reading is the same. The source being from
spirit, loved ones that have passed, ascended masters and even the Angels or a mix of them.
Joann has also studied various healing modalities such E.F.T, Chakra Healing, IET, Spiritualist healing
instruction with Britten Memorial Church,and several levels of Quantum Touch modality and she is a
Reiki Master. Although she knows her main calling is not to be an energy healer these
classes have helped strengthen her bond with spirit.
Continuing her search for spiritual knowledge Joann found the Church of Universal Love. She has taken
various courses with them and has served Church of Universal Love as a medium during various
events. Joann also served the COUL Board as a Director until July 2018.
Spirit has since opened the door and has been a guiding force encouraging Joann to be one of the
co-founders of the Canadian Fellowship of Spiritualists. Serving the Fellowship as President
is an exciting new challenge that spirit has asked her to do.
Joann is a member of the Spiritualist Church of Canada and is pursuing studies to become a Minister
with them. She is looking forward to touching even more people's lives as the President of the
Canadian Fellowship of Spiritualists and as an ordained Minister when she completes her studies.
Joann loves helping people and being of service to spirit in whatever capacity that looks like. She
is a strong promoter of the Spiritualist religion as she is eternally
grateful for the impact it has made in her life.
