With her pure empathetic nature and genuine compassion for her clients, Renee’s goal for every reading is to make each client feel relaxed and connected to their loved ones in Spirit, serving as a bridge to the other side. Her ability to provide specific evidence of Spirit creates a pure connection, leaving the client with no doubt their loved ones live on and that life, like love, never dies. Simply put Renee makes connections with people who are no longer living and delivers messages to those who still are. She receives information directly from the dead, spirit guides and angels. She is a mental medium, which means she communicates with spirits through the use of telepathy. Spirits impress the mind and body with thoughts and feelings that come in the form of "clairs" and she is able to "hear" (clairaudience), "see" (clairvoyance), "know" (claircognizance) and/or "feel" (clairsentience) messages from spirits, acting as the bridge between the spiritual and the physical world, always with the intention of healing both worlds.
Renee in her own words:
"I had awareness of spirits from a very young age and as far back as I can remember I've always been able to sense spirits. I still remember the people in my room at bedtime that would often frighten me because I didn’t know why they were there. When the spirits learned to communicate with me using my dolls it wasn't as scary for me and I learned they only wanted help crossing over. Frequently at night when falling asleep, I would see mini-movies in my mind of people I didn't know, and this continues to happen to me today. I always had several “imaginary friends” around me everyday and was truly surprised to discover that others didn’t. I was told by my father that I had an overactive imagination because I was an only child but my mother knew differently, but instead she reminded me it wasn't that long ago 'they burned people like us at the stake.'
At the age of 9, I had my first true experience communicating with a spirit when my maternal grandfather passed away. He visited me in my bedroom to let me know he had died and that he loved me. On the day of his funeral I felt my grandfather’s spirit with me and my family during our car ride from the church to the cemetery. I heard him say again how much he loved me. He asked me to look up into the sky because he had a gift for me. Just as I looked up I discovered the most beautiful rainbow pushing through the dark rain clouds above. This brought tears to my eyes and a smile across my face, proving that I really did hear him and that he was trying to make sure I knew it wasn’t my imagination. At the funeral I couldn't understand why everyone was sad because I could see my grandfather standing there with us.
I'm sad to say that as I grew up I ignored my abilities and they went dormant for many years. Then, when I was in my 40's I almost died and all of my abilities came crashing back. I say "crashing" because suddenly I was hearing voices and 'knowing' things I couldn't possibly know, and I wasn't prepared for such an intensive learning period. Luckily I was able to find a couple of mentors to guide me through this period and they are responsible for saving my sanity. During this time I started working with young children and teenagers with emerging abilities because I could easily relate to the fear they were experiencing.
I finally came to terms with my abilities, accepting them as a gift from God rather than a curse. Through extensive spiritual training, I learned to embrace my natural calling to serve Spirit. I have a special connection with earthbound spirits and cherish each opportunity I'm given to help them crossover into the light.
So what does this have to do with s4p Paranormal Investigations & Resolutions you might ask? Good question. I'd been doing paranormal investigations before my all of my abilities came back but I was always unhappy leaving a client no better off than they were before I provided them with proof they weren't crazy. I knew that while some spirits are gentle and are able to co-exist with the living with very few disruptions, some spirits, while not necessarily evil, are disruptive and can even be harmful to the living, and they truly needed the harmful spirits removed from their property. When I found there was a way to actually help the families and business owners living with these disruptive spirits, I received the proper and intensive training required for this work and put together a team of likeminded and gifted individuals. For two years I was mentored by a very gifted psychic medium in the practice of spirit attachment removal and how to crossover earthbound souls into the light, and I during this period I became an Advanced Kundalini Reiki Master and a certified crystal healer, and I even studied the protective metaphysical properties of herbs in order to create my own cleansing formulas (Do not try to remove a demon with a simple sage bundle!).
Along the way I discovered I'm actually a Lightworker. What is a Lightworker you ask? Another good question. Simply put, Lightworkers can be Sensitives who are Guides, Healers, Mediums, Psychics, or Earth Angels. A Lightworker is a Soul who assists on the physical plane by carrying out lightworking duties and activities, and can have one or more (or several) skills. Their skills vary from advice, support, guidance, and healing—it could be to guide someone who has become lost on their life path, or to support those who have experienced a traumatic loss. Charges find their way to a Lightworker or Fate ensures that their paths cross with a person in need. Lightworkers don’t choose their charges, but some such as healers often offer healing sessions to those in need. A Lightworker never judges or imposes, but listens and advises. They offer support, guidance, comfort, and healing, in many forms. Their primary purpose is to return the Light to a Soul who is in a dark place.
We've helped a number of families in the Middle Tennessee area reclaim their homes and businesses, and I admit I love the feeling. I believe your home should be your 'safe harbor' and your business should be allowed to thrive.
Often in this hectic life, we forget the important things. In my mind, it matters far less that we know all the answers, but more so that we come to understand the questions.
Thank you for allowing me to share my story with you. I look forward to connecting with you one day soon. Renee
Humans have been fascinated with contacting the dead since the beginning of human existence. Cave paintings by indigenous Australians date back 28,000 years, some depicting skulls, bones, spirits and the afterlife. Other cave paintings in Indonesia date back a further 10,000 years. Mediumship gained popularity during the 19th century, where ouija boards were used by the upper classes as a source of entertainment. Investigations during this period revealed widespread fraud, with some practitioners employing techniques used by stage magicians, and the practice began to lose credibility. Fraud is still rife in the medium/psychic industry, with cases of deception and trickery being discovered to this day.
"Mental mediumship" is communication of spirits with a medium by telepathy. The medium mentally "hears" (clairaudience), "sees" (clairvoyance), and/or feels (clairsentience) messages from spirits. Directly or with the help of a spirit guide, the medium passes the information on to the message's recipient(s). When a medium is doing a "reading" for a particular person, that person is known as the "sitter".
"Trance mediumship" is often seen as a form of mental mediumship. Most trance mediums remain conscious during a communication period, wherein a spirit uses the medium's mind to communicate. The spirit or spirits using the medium's mind influences the mind with the thoughts being conveyed. The medium allows the ego to step aside for the message to be delivered. At the same time, one has awareness of the thoughts coming through and may even influence the message with one's own bias. Such a trance is not to be confused with sleepwalking, as the patterns are entirely different.
"Physical mediumship" is defined as manipulation of energies and energy systems by spirits. This type of mediumship is claimed to involve perceptible manifestations, such as loud raps and noises, voices, materialized objects, apports, materialized spirit bodies, or body parts such as hands, legs and feet. The medium is used as a source of power for such spirit manifestations. By some accounts, this was achieved by using the energy or ectoplasm released by a medium. Most physical mediumship is presented in a darkened or dimly lit room. Most physical mediums make use of a traditional array of tools and appurtenances, including spirit trumpets, spirit cabinets, and levitation tables.
"Direct voice communication" is the claim that spirits speak independently of the medium, who facilitates the phenomenon rather than produces it. The role of the medium is to make the connection between the physical and spirit worlds. Trumpets are often utilized to amplify the signal, and directed voice mediums are sometimes known as "trumpet mediums". This form of mediumship also permits the medium to participate in the discourse during séances, since the medium's voice is not required by the spirit to communicate.
A type of non-physical mediumship is channeling, in which the channeler goes into a trance, or "leaves their body", allowing a spiritual entity to borrow their body, who then talks through them. When in a trance the medium appears to come under the control of the spirit of a departed soul, sometimes entering into a cataleptic state, although modern channelers may not. Some channelers open the eyes when channeling, and remain able to walk and behave normally. The rhythm and the intonation of the voice may also change completely.
A psychic isn't necessarily a medium, but a medium is a psychic. Psychics tune into the energy of people or objects by feeling or sensing elements of their past, present and future, relying on their basic sense of intuition and psychic ability to gather information for the person being read. Mediums however take it a step further by using their psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy (people that have passed) surrounding that person, relying on the presence of spirit energy for the information relevant to the person being read. While psychic readings often focus on predicting future events, mediums primarily tune into past and present issues.
A medium will have psychic abilities but not all psychics can function as mediums.
Clairvoyance or "clear seeing", is the ability to see anything that is not physically present, such as objects, animals or people. This sight occurs "in the mind's eye". Some mediums explain this is their normal vision state. Others say they must train their minds with such practices as meditation in order to achieve this ability, and that assistance from spiritual helpers is often necessary. Some clairvoyant mediums can see a spirit as though the spirit has a physical body. They see the bodily form as if it were physically present. Other mediums see the spirit in their mind's eye, or it appears as a movie or a television program or a still picture like a photograph in their mind.
Clairaudience or "clear hearing", is usually defined as the ability to hear the voices or thoughts of spirits. Some mediums hear as though they are listening to a person talking to them on the outside of their head, as though the Spirit is next to or near to the medium, and other mediums hear the voices in their minds as a verbal thought.
Clairsentience or "clear sensing", is the ability to have an impression of what a spirit wants to communicate, or to feel sensations instilled by a spirit.
Clairsentinence or "clear feeling" is a condition in which the medium takes on the ailments of a spirit, feeling the same physical problem which the spirit person had before death.
Clairalience or "clear smelling" is the ability to smell a spirit. For example, a medium may smell the pipe tobacco of a person who smoked during life.
Clairgustance or "clear tasting" is the ability to receive taste impressions from a spirit.
Claircognizance or "clear knowing", is the ability to know something without receiving it through normal or psychic senses. It is a feeling of "just knowing". Often, a medium will have the feeling that a message or situation is "right" or "wrong."
