Did you know that you can create good karma just by doing something nice for someone?
Doing something nice for someone else is like lighting a campfire, everyone around you is warmed by your actions including yourself. In fact, if you’re depressed, feeling hopeless, or mourning a loss, many people (me included) believe the best way to feel better is to get involved in an activity that helps others.
It doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated.
You might decide to feed the homeless, drop off magazines or cookies at a senior center, or spend time caring for animals at the shelter. It might be as simple as calling someone on the phone and letting them know you’re thinking about them. Doing something helpful has an almost magical way of helping you forget your own troubles, and gives you a feeling of purpose.
In addition to the little glow you feel when you help someone out, every good deed goes into your “Good Karma Piggy Bank.” It doesn’t even matter if anyone else is aware of your actions or appreciates them. The universe has a way of keeping track, and every kind act adds up like money in the bank. When you have a time in your life when you need positive loving energy, that good fortune comes back to you.
Planting Seeds of Kindness
I have a friend who’s the epitome of Good Karma. She is always practicing gratitude, can be counted on to come through when a friend needs help, and is great at listening and giving advice. Even though her friends come and go, and some people don’t appreciate her kindness and generosity, she never lets it get to her. She just keeps on being the kind, giving person she is.
She’s been like this as long as I’ve known her, but a few years back her life took a tumble. She was diagnosed with a very rare cancer that was considered to be virtually untreatable. Her doctors advised her to move to New York to see a specialist. The New York doctor had successfully treated others with the same illness, and she knew this was her only change of survival. She had no idea how she would be able to afford the treatment and care, and barely had the energy to think about packing her things and moving!
She was never the type to ask for anything, but a friend secretly created a go fund me page for her. Almost overnight, nearly a half million dollars was raised. All the people who had come and gone in her life rallied around her, advocated for her, and spread the word far and wide. It seemed as if every single person she had been kind to over the years told a few friends, and they told a few friends…
Even though she never expected this kind of result from her good deeds, her good karma prevailed. She was able to get the treatment she needed and survived. I wasn’t surprised at all! That’s how karma works!
Creating Good Karma is Easy
Sometimes life gets crazy, and you wonder how you’ll get through the day yourself, much less practice random acts of kindness. But you can be a consistent source of positive energy and good vibes if you remember these four simple techniques:
1) Forgive. Instead of holding a grudge, try to give other people the benefit of the doubt. You might be feeling wronged by someone who had no intention of hurting you. You don’t have to spend time with people who are unkind or thoughtless, but let go of the burden of resentment you’re carrying, and forgive them.
2) Express gratitude whenever you can. There’s plenty of gratitude to go around, so be thankful for everything that’s good in your life – the people who care about you, your pets, your job, the flowers in your backyard. The more conscious you are about practicing gratitude, the more good things you’ll attract.
3) Be mindful of your actions. Have you ever been in a hurry, and realized that you’d checked out of the grocery store, or left the bank without thanking, or even looking at, the person who helped you? When you slow down and pay attention, you’ll find many opportunities to practice kindness with a smile, a thank you, or a helping hand.
4) Be kind to yourself. How you feel inside reflects in how you treat other people, so be your own best friend! Tape positive affirmations to your bathroom mirror, and avoid being overly self-critical and negative. Encourage yourself and cut yourself slack when you need it – just like you would for a loved one.
Sincere kindness, gratitude and positivity are all simple ways to make the world a better place. Being a source of light feels good in the moment – and the good karma you earn has a way of showing up just when you need it most. I encourage you to get in the good karma habit, and practice forgiveness, gratitude, mindfulness, and acceptance every day!
Life has a way of throwing challenges in your path. No matter how strong, smart, and capable, you might be, everyone needs a little help sometimes. That’s why it’s nice to know that in addition to friends and family on earth, you can tap into help from Heaven when you need it!
Many people often ask me, how do our loved ones help us from Heaven?
As a medium I can tell you they help out in many different ways, often without you even realizing it. In fact, you have a whole team to watch over you – angels, guides, and loved ones who have passed – warning when danger is near and sending strength and encouragement when you lose your way.
But that’s not all. Your “Spirit Team” has another powerful tool in their divine toolbox and that’s the ability to work through other people. Sometimes the best way they can help involves bringing in earthly support.
Support from Unexpected Places
I believe sometimes divine intervention comes through the hands of others – doctors, teachers, police officers, and everyday people. Of course, good Samaritans sometimes jump in and help on their own accord without any encouragement from the heavens, but there are times when I hear a story and I just KNOW there’s more to it than that!
For instance, I remember seeing a news story about a woman who slipped and fell down onto the subway tracks just as a train was approaching. Just thinking about that absolutely freaks me out – it was always something that scared me when I was a kid and went into the city! Miraculously, out of nowhere a man rushed in. With no time to pull her back to safety, he jumped down with her, held her tight and they both ducked as low as they could and were both saved!
When the good Samaritan was interviewed, he was still really shaken up, and confused. He said he had no idea what had possessed him rush in and save the woman. He had no knowledge of what to do in an emergency like this, but somehow he found a way to save the woman without killing himself in the process.
It was no mystery to me. As soon as I heard the story, I knew immediately that the woman’s Angels had been right there, working through a bystander to bring her to safety.
Humans aren’t the only ones that the Angels work through. How many times have you heard of a dog who pulled his owner out of a house just as smoke started to fill the room? Or a dog who found a way to alert neighbors when its owner was injured?
There are so many stories where you ask yourself, “How did that animal know what to do?” The answer is often that the Angels made him do it!
Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics Need Help Too!
Think about the medical profession. Lately, they’ve gotten some extra recognition for being the heroes that they are! But do you ever wonder what makes them able to always be there, sacrificing themselves and risking their health to care for others. When patients are rushed through the doors of the ER the doctors never know what they will be faced with, but something gives them the strength, patience and wisdom to help save lives.
Of course, medical professionals go through years of training, but as someone who was once an EMT, I remember times where I had a gut feeling that I couldn’t explain, or got a little burst of energy when I needed it most. Looking back, I feel that my own spiritual support system, or the guides, Angels, and deceased loved ones of the person I was treating intervened to help the outcome.
Need Help? Call upon Your “Team!”
If you’re struggling with a tough decision, feeling hopeless, or find yourself in a dangerous spot with no way out, don’t hesitate to ask the heavens for help. There are heavenly helpers standing by, waiting for you to call upon them – and if they can’t solve the problem, they’ll find someone who can!

I was stuck in traffic the other day, and I figured I’d take the time to plan out this blog. I knew I wanted to talk about the different kinds of mediums and how they connect with souls on the other side but couldn’t figure out how…
Mediums can serve a specific purpose.
So, I’m sitting there thinking about my upcoming Dr’s appointments when suddenly it hits me! Mediums are kind of like all the different Dr’s we have.. Hear me out!
Just like doctors have a specialty, there are mediums who specialize in different types of readings. For example, there are psychic mediums, pet mediums, medical mediums, mediums that hunt for ghosts – just like there are chiropractors, Dermatologists, Optometrist, Pediatricians, and cardiologists, that all specialize in different parts of our bodies.
You’ll have the most success if you find the kind of medium you need. Just like you can complain to your chiropractor about chest pain, you can go to a psychic medium with a medical question – but it’s not ideal!
Although every Medium has a unique and special way to connect with spirit, they all have their own specialties.
Three generations, three different ways of connecting.
Beyond having a specialty, mediums also receive messages differently. Also, the way psychic and mediums use their gifts varies! Take my family. My grandmother was a medium, my mom is a medium and I am a medium. We share genetics, we’re all mediums, but we have different gifts – different ways of connection.
My grandmother was primarily a card reader. She would do readings, mapping out the past, present and future for her clients using her handmade tarot deck. She relied on psychic ability, but mediumship was not a main connection for her. She could sense and feel spirit, but mainly received premonitions.
My mom is a psychic life reader. Before each reading she meditates on the client she is about to read, pulls a few cards, and suddenly thoughts, visions and feeling start to take over and paint a picture of that persons life. My mom’s readings help people navigate life, career and romance.
She can also decode symbols found in tea leaves or coffee grinds at the bottom of your cup.
It’s funny, because when I see tea leaves or coffee grinds they mean nothing – but to my mother, they tell a whole story. My mom’s mediumship also comes through when she looks at photographs. She is able to identify and see spirit in photos, and bring through messages.
For me, it’s different because I see visions in real life. Spirit appears to me in the form of a shadow or silhouette and I hear messages like a whisper through my thoughts. It’s not the same as the movies, though – they’re more like glimpses or impressions. I also feel physical sensations – I’ll get a sensation in my chest and know the person who passed had heart issues, or feel a sudden pain in my head and know they had an aneurism or stroke.
I use all of these senses and feelings to understand the message spirit is trying to relay. To me it’s like putting together the pieces of a jig-saw puzzle.
Meet the Clairs!
You’ve probably heard of clairvoyance, and maybe you even thought it was synonymous with psychic. Actually, it’s only one of the ways that psychics and mediums receive messages. Here are a few of the most popular “clairs,”and how they feel to the medium.
Clairvoyance – Seeing: Clairvoyant mediums have the ability to visualize memories or events presented to them through the mind’s eye or the third eye. Mediums usually see these visions as quick mental flashes which include pictures of people, places, and objects, or even symbols, colors, and auras.
Clairaudience – Hearing: You can probably guess that this is the ability to hear messages from the other side. The words aren’t crystal clear like a phone call – the medium usually has to piece them together. What comes through is often fast and jumbled, or can even be a mix of voices that sound like what happens when you scroll through the channels on a radio.
Clairsentience – Sensing / feeling: This is the ability to sense emotions from spirit both positive and negative. Mediums with this gift can also “feel” any physical pain associated with the spirit connection. These feelings are being transmitted from the soul they’re connecting with, and are clearly different from their own feelings.
Claircognizance – Knowing: This is commonly described as flash of understanding, a premonition, or a sudden understanding that comes out of nowhere. Mediums who have this gift can often gain valuable insights in a reading that answer a question or help the recipient gain clarity or closure.
Clairalience – Smelling: This is the ability to smell a fragrance being transmitted by the spirit. It can be related to the spirit who is sending the message such as smelling cigarettes or pipe tobacco for someone who smoked or catching a whiff of the soul’s favorite perfume.
Finding a medium who is a match for you.
Why am I telling you all this? You might feel that I’m giving you TMI (too much information). However, it’s always good to have the knowledge to make an informed choice. If you’re in need of a medium for a reading, or for any purpose, it’s important to find out a little about them. I’ve said this often, a medium is like a translator between you and the spirit realm. That’s the reason you need to find a psychic or medium you connect with. It’s like finding a teacher that speaks your language, and communicates in a way that helps you to learn.
Now that you’ve been educated on the types of mediums, I invite you to see one in action. ME!
You can experience my style of readings without leaving your couch. Check out my online group reading page, sign up for one of my Online Group Readings and find out if someone on the other side has a special message for you.
As a medium, I spend most of my time validating to people that their loved ones in Heaven are always with them.Even when you don’t feel or sense them, they are still part of your life. They send you signs, appear in dreams and even appear to young children.
But here something that you might not know…
Your loved ones who have passed are not the only ones watching over you. Everyone has a whole group of celestial beings that have been assigned to them before birth, including spirit guides, angels, saints, and even spirit animals.
Some of the most helpful (and popular) members of this group are angels.
Sensing & Feeling Your Angels
Angels are around you every day whether you realize it or not. Think of all the times a voice in your head has given you a warning before anything else indicates a problem.
For example, something tells you to slow down while driving and suddenly a car swerves into your lane or a tire blows out in the car right in front of you.
Without your guardian angels watching over you and encouraging you to take your foot off the gas pedal, you may have been unable to react quickly enough to avoid a catastrophe. That little voice might be your intuition— but more often than not, it’s your angels!
Calling on your Angels & Saints
In my work, I feel the presence of my spirit guides and angels all the time. I couldn’t be a medium without them. When I think of times when I call upon a specific angel or saint, I have to admit the one that comes to mind first is St. Anthony.
St. Anthony is the patron saint of lost things. You can call on him anytime you have something that is lost or misplaced and St. Anthony will divinely help.
If you know me at all, you’re aware that I’m always busy running around and doing a million different things and it drives me crazy when something slows me down.
I’m famous for losing my keys, my phone, my wallet – and St. Anthony is always there to help me find whatever I’m searching for so I can be on my way. As I’m looking I ask for his divine assistance and suddenly I know just where to look!
Now don’t get me wrong. St. Anthony doesn’t just show up and hand me my keys. I have to ask.
Angels will not interfere with your life without permission unless you are in very serious danger, but they are always happy to help. All they need is an invitation from you.
It doesn’t have to be anything complicated. “Please help me,” or, “Please help my loved one” will do just fine! You don’t even need to say it aloud—your angels will hear your thoughts and understand your intentions.
What Do Angels Do?
There are actually different types of angels.
There are guardian angels that watch over and protect you. These Angels are assigned to you at birth and accompany with on your life’s journey.
There are Archangels – who occupy the highest spot in the angel hierarchy. They are specially chosen by God to oversee the spiritual development of souls and help life of earth for all living beings.
There are also Divine Purpose angels with divine jobs that appear in your life for a specific purpose. For example Archangel Garbiel in the Angel of fertility.
Depending on what you’re experiencing at a particular point in your life, you might feel drawn to a particular angel who can help.
Here are some of the most commonly called upon angels, and what they “specialize” in.
Archangel Michael probably comes to mind when you think of protection. He guards you from negative energy, accidents, and illness.
Archangel Michael is always there to shelter you and provide the love energy when you need it.
Saint Rocco is a healing angel. He can help you recover from sickness or injury, and is also the angel to call upon when you’re depressed or experiencing emotional trauma.
If you or someone you love is sick, lost or struggling, you can ask for his assistance with a silent request or prayer.
If you are a student, or have an important decision to make you can call on
Uriel is the angel you go to when you’re looking for understanding, information or a wise head to help with a difficult choice.
Just invite him in, ask your question, and he will share his divine wisdom with you!
St. Francis the angel associated with animals. You can call upon him for guidance and healing for your furry or feathered friends.
Archangel Jophiel is the Angel to go to when you have self doubt and are looking for clarity & personal understanding. This angel can help you Rediscover your life purpose.
One last thing…
It’s rare to actually see an angel, wings and all – so how do you know when you’re getting guidance, encouragement, and protection from a divine source?
The answer is pretty simple… Listen to your heart.
If you feel a warm, safe sensation, or feel yourself being guided by a being who wants only what’s best for you – guess what? Angels are with you!
Oh, and one final thought. When you ask for an angels help – either for helping you get your dream job, healing from an illness, or just finding your car keys – and they deliver, don’t forget to send up a little prayer of thanks.
Even angels like being appreciated!
If you have been wondering who has been watching over you, I hope you will join me at one of my online group readings. During these online events I have been able to meet and read for families from all over the country and even the world! We can only allow a limited amount of participants. If you would like to join me, Click Here to reserve your spot.
Television star, psychic medium, and bestselling author Matt Fraser chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about “Meet the Frasers” and being a performer in the digital age, and the impact of technology during the quarantine.
Fraser is a star of the hit reality television series Meet The Frasers on E! Entertainment, as well as America’s top psychic medium. “It has been great. At first, I was nervous because I hadn’t done reality TV before, but to be honest with you, you forget that the cameras are there really quick,” he said.
His sold-out live events, shows, television appearances, and popular private readings have allowed him to bring healing, hope, and laughter to a worldwide audience of fans and followers. He has worked with A-list celebrities, social media influencers, and everyday people.
Each day, he is motivated by his “clients.” “Getting up each day and seeing the messages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and people telling me that I am inspiring them and helping them cope with their pain of losing their loved ones,” he said. “Also, at the same time, people are coming to my pages and they are sharing their own stories. Even though my pages are primarily about me, it has become a community for people to come and meet other people that are like them.”
“Every single day, I am learning things that are new. It is a little bit like Rosetta Stone,” he said.
“I am very blessed and I feel blessed every single day,” he admitted. “My clients helped define me, and they shaped who I am. I don’t consider the fans as followers, I consider them family because they are all so positive. My fans are the nicest from all over the world.”
On being a TV personality in the digital age, he said, “To be honest with you, it has helped me reach people I normally wouldn’t have been able to reach and meet before. At first, I was skeptical about doing things online because I didn’t know how it was going to work, especially I am so used to being on the road and on tour. All of a sudden, all of these people decide to tune in online. I’ve read people from Greece, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.”
“Without this new form of technology, I would have never been able to reach these people without physically going there,” he added.
He acknowledged that he sees a silver lining during the quarantine. “The quarantine has taught us a little about connecting with the spirit world,” he said. “When we first went into quarantine, I didn’t know what was going to happen. Then something amazing happened, even though we couldn’t connect with our family members and see them face to face, we discovered a new way to communicate with them via Zoom. Now, we have learned to connect with people in a whole new way using technology.”
“Another thing I’ve noticed is that we are all here in this world to help one another,” he said. “If we didn’t help each other during the pandemic, where would we be?”
Fraser noted that he has loved being at home and enjoying his house. “That is something I haven’t been able to do before since I would travel so much and I was out of the house so much,” he said. “I appreciate being at home and spending time with Alexa and our pets.”
Regarding the title of the current chapter of his life, he said with a sweet laugh, “Zooming with the dead.” “I think that everybody’s chapter in their lives is ‘Zoom’ something such as Zoom holidays, Zoom birthdays, Zoom cooking,” he explained.
A bestselling author of When Heaven Calls and a true global phenomenon, Fraser has caught the attention of major media outlets across the country such as the New York Times, People Magazine, and CBS Radio. He has also been a sought-after guest on such popular television shows as The Real Housewives, Botched, and The Doctors, among others.
For young and aspiring artists, he said, “Keep following your passion.” “Keep going on your own path and don’t listen to anybody else,” he said. “There is enough room in the universe for everybody to have success in what it is that they are doing. Also, I would encourage parents, educators, and people that influence the youth to encourage people to have their own path. We are all brought into this world with different gifts.”
Fraser defined the word success as “looking back on your life and taking away life lessons from it.” “Helping people and being inspirational and that you left your mark on this world. That is what success means to me,” he said. “Also, knowing what your life purpose is. I feel that we are all here to contribute to this world.”
For his fans and followers, Fraser concluded, “Thank you so much, I couldn’t have done it without you. I love the people that have followed me from day one from before I had a TV show and before I was anybody. To see all of those people still following me on my journey shows me that I am doing something right.”
