In my last blog post (see “Heaven Sent”), I wrote about building my new-found skills for communicating with ascended spirits. One of the things I intended to include in that column was a fuller description of what a person could and should expect from a reading with the ascended spirit of a loved one. I quickly realized, however, that I’ve never been on the other side of this equation, never been the person having a reading done for me, and I lacked the proper experience to write much about it. Certainly, people have said things to me, so I have a sense of what it is like, but I wanted to provide a fuller description.
To that end, I contacted Beth Redman, a woman who is both friend and client, and for whom I have done both types of readings — with the un-ascended spirits of several of her relatives over the years, and more recently, with the ascended spirit of her father. I asked her a few general questions about how she would describe the difference between the two types of readings, and about what she thought people could expect from a conversation with the ascended spirit of a loved one. Her replies were on point, and she has given permission for me to share them with you here.
