In the age of digital communication, we find great convenience in gathering information with the assistance

of the internet, search engines, texting and yes... email. An experienced psychic medium can connect through

any means of communication.  An Email Reading is the perfect solution for the person on the go.  The medium

will receive your questions immediately, focus on your specific needs and email answers to your questions.

They will arrive in your personal email inbox within 24 - 48 hours.

An email reading is a convenient alternative to telephone sessions. Clients forward

questions and answers are returned – all via the internet.

It’s a simple way to ask questions and get intuitive answers without having

to physically visit or telephone a medium.

For anyone preferring privacy when expressing their most private questions and feelings, this makes

a reading accessible to you – right in the comfort of your laptop/desktop or smart phone. You can

ask your questions without having to actually “talk about it.” 

A Medium, can connect with you by using any means of communication.

Whether or not you sitting together, speaking through a telephone, using video/audio readings, if the

medium is holding an item you own, studying a photo or reading your email … You could be anywhere in

the world, and the medium could be thousands of miles away. Physical separation does not matter.

​The physical separation means nothing more than that - physical separation. Energy links are created

by focused intentions. Trained mediums can build a bridge between you and them.

The medium is connecting to information that is coming through your energy. In any reading, the person

getting the reading sets the intention that they need answers to their questions. The medium focuses on

helping them. Successful intuition requires a concentrated linking and focus. In order to achieve that

focus, you need to center yourself and reflect on your life. The information that you seek (questions asked)

come from the power of your conscious mind. Your energy and feelings are transmitted through the email.

The Medium's natural intuition only requires a focused connection

 Email Readings are simple and convenient. You can type your questions and

read the responses at the time most convenient for you.

Some of us are busy and don’t have time for a telephone reading session. Simply forwarding

your questions in an email takes less time. Reading at your leisure is the

way to go for people with busy schedules.

Writing out your questions /situation is a form of journaling. Journaling is a proven form of helping you with

problem solving. With an email reading you have the opportunity to type, re-read, edit, and take your

time reviewing the questions you have written to make sure they are what you really want to answers to. 

This process of compiling thoughts for your own review can be a useful practice in problem solving –

you’re thinking about the questions, really looking at which ones are important to you, and

then rethinking the value of what’s really going on with you. It’s sort of like “out of the box”

self therapy before you even get the actual reading.

With email readings, the medium has more time to tune into you and your question,

and can do it when they feel ready. 


Another benefit to having an email readings is it is very obvious if the medium is just trying to do

a cold reading since they can’t actually ask you any more questions than what you send.

In an email reading, you don’t have to take notes. They show up in your mailbox.

It is nice to have a record of the answers to your questions to review at a later time

to see if certain things came true.

It's easier to reflect on what you've been told in an email reading because you can take

your time going over the information in it.

If you are not comfortable sharing your feeling with others an email reading is perfect

because you don't actually have to talk to the medium.

Time zones no longer create scheduling issues, you send your questions at any time, and you 

receive answers with a specific time and everyone is happy. World access with the very

same connection is a reality with an email reading.

It is very important to be as specific as possible when you are coming up with the questions for

your email reading, Take your time, relax and get your thoughts together on what you

really want to focus on. Double check before forwarding the email.  

Compact all questions in one correspondence. (back and forth questions/ answers

lose accuracy as the connection is weakened) .

Include a photo of yourself and/or others involved in your situation if you’d like.

It’s important that you relax and really think about what is going on in your life as you
begin to put together your questions for an email reading.

You want your questions direct and focused. Remember the email you send is filled with

your focused intention that you will receive accurate answers.

Note: Vague questions are not recommended for this format as your medium may pick up valid information

that may be based around a different situation that is occurring within your life.

Poor Question: What is he thinking?

Better Question: What is he thinking now that he knows I’m pregnant?

Poor Question: What happened on Monday?

Better Question: What happened on Monday when my boss fired me for no reason?

Try to remain open the questions you sent out in the email, that the answers will find their way back

to you. Try and remain an open channel to the energy link between you and the solutions to your

problems. The medium will be opening the email that holds your focused intention. She/he will

amplify the energy and connect to the answers you need.

The email that you receive back from the medium likely will not have answers to all your problems. No one

can make decisions for you. But be assured that you will get the direction that you need to

resolve the issues that are immediate roadblocks.

Whatever your questions and problems are today, an email reading should help. Every seeker is truly looking

for the right path. Your life and the people in it are personal.  Your thoughts and feelings and your actions

are your own business. A caring medium will be able to connect to your life force energy whether you see

them in person, talk to them on the phone or send them your questions for an email reading.


There may be times when you feel you would like a reading but are unable, for one reason or another,

to meet face to face with the medium. The Canadian Fellowship of Spiritualists works with

mediums that offer telephone readings for those of you who are in this situation.

This type of reading is an opportunity for you to speak with a medium via the telephone, ask questions

and receive guidance on any topic. Telephone readings can be a convenient way to have your questions

answered whenever and wherever you are without having to take precious time out of your busy schedule.

Mediums are able to connect with your energy during a telephone reading

just as they can during an In-Person reading.

They will deliver messages from Loved Ones who have crossed over to the Otherside with validating

information. In addition to delivering messages from loved ones, he can connect with your guides and

give insight on present and future situations. Whether you have inquiries on relationships, finances,

career, spiritual development, or other aspects of your life, Robert will deliver messages and

guidance from your Guides and loved ones watching over you to assist you on your path.

These sessions are offered for those of you who require guidance and assistance with your current life

situation. During the reading various topics such as current influences on your life, relationships,

your strengths and weaknesses as well as a general overview will be covered.

A Telephone reading is just as accurate and informative as a face to face reading and what is even

better is that you can enjoy your Telephone reading wherever you are in the world. 

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.


A telephone reading can take many different forms, depending on how spirit relays the messages.

The three main types are a Mediumship 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.

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.

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.
