Thoughts on What to Avoid when visiting with a Medium
Choosing a Medium
There are many psychics and Mediums available. Selecting a legitimate, experienced person honors both you, and those whom have passed. Things to consider include searching for a Reader that:
is recommended by those you know, or through others whom have had direct experience
comes with references, or testimonials
has proven experience
offers a website and/or other written material
is ethical, communicates responsibly, and respects confidentiality
is willing to offer 'cold' readings (i.e., the reader requires NO information up-front)
volunteers time as a Medium to organizations
has participated in formal research studies (e.g., VERITAS, The Windbridge Institute)
is formally educated
is flexible, and willing to address your questions and concerns
Expect to pay a reasonable fee. A high-dollar amount (mediums charging several hundred to thousands of dollars) does not necessarily correlate to receiving a phenomenal reading. Remember that psychics and Mediums are most-often self-employed, and do not receive benefits. They often do not employ a staff. Nor do they read for a traditional 40-hour/week schedule as do most full-time workers in the US. In fact, the majority of readers known to Traci at most, offer 5 - 15 readings per week. There is more 'work' behind your appointment - setting it via misc. emails or phone calls, billing, etc. Be aware that most psychics/Mediums take time preparing for the reading, and de-escalate from the reading. The work begins before your appointment and often extends after.
-----------------------------------------------------A VERY important note from Traci about readings: "I am not a Medium who is able to 'work-on-demand.' That is to say, I do not take orders from clients as to whom they expect to hear from. Spirits come through as they see fit. As a Medium I am simply the middle-(wo)man, delivering messages. Although you will have opportunity to ask questions of those that come through, I've no control over who comes through, nor do I have control over the order in which they arrive. My experience has been that for clients who are insistent-upon-their-own-way, the process does not flow well.
During Psychic Readings, a similar premise holds true: I will tell you what I am receiving. There are times that this does not resonate with clients. Clients will be charged whether or not agreeing with the information.
Persons wanting to hear from one specific person, and are disinterested in hearing from others. Remember: the client does not control the reading, and Traci is there as an usher of sorts, bringing the essence of people through. When a client is demanding, the reading may not proceed smoothly. Be advised, that in the case you believe you have not heard from whom you wished to hear from is not cause for a refund. Clients are compensating Traci for time spent.
During your reading, behavior you might refrain from:
During your reading, behavior I might exhibit in all seriousness:
- I have allergies and may need to sneeze or blow my nose. With the latter I will certainly excuse myself, put the
phone down and blow my nose.
- If reading for you during my morning, I will be drinking coffee, or later iced tea or water. I will let you know that
I need a drink. I will say, "Excuse me please, I need to take a sip of my coffee. I may get up from my reading chair
to pour more coffee or to refill my water glass to do so as my office is immediately off of my kitchen. This means I
may turn on the tap water.
-Upon occasion my doorbell will ring as I generally do phone readings from home, v. in my private office where
I see clients. I will get up from my chair where I usually read to see who is at the door. You will hear the doorbell ring. I may even need to answer the door. I have no staff here or at my private office. I will apologize to you in all sincerity for the intrusion, and most generally will offer extra time for your final questions/concerns.
-I have pets, and like yours, mine make sounds... sometimes they fight, sometimes they meow or bark, or do something silly.
I am human. I would hope that if you need a drink, you'll refresh yourself. And if you need to use the bathroom during your reading that you excuse yourself and do so. I would hope that your pets behave as they do, or not, and that if your doorbell rings, you answer it - particularly if you live alone. I hope that if it's your habit, that you're in your workout clothes or p.j.'s, and if you've not brushed your teeth, I won't have a clue, nor does it matter to me being that we're on the phone.
I am a happy, easy-going person, and I consider myself to be flexible, casual and non-judgemental. If these behaviors and actions bother you, I AM NOT THE MEDIUM FOR YOU, and likewise, you are not a client for me.
Traci's readings come from Spirit in the 'spirit-of' personal enlightenment. To some recipients, they also provide entertainment and certainly, enjoyment. Every beneficiary of a reading has free will to choose as they see fit for their own life. Individuals are responsible for their interpretation of the reading as well as how or if they incorporate it into their own life via thought, word and deed.
Who Traci may NOT be a Great Match for:
Costs for fuel,travel time, lodging and related-expenses may be added to your reading, if your requirements are that Traci travels to you. When reading away from the Kansas City area, rates may be higher to compensate for these expenses. Traci maintains the right to determine what she travels for, and where she travels to.
