Tamie had never visited a medium or had a psychic reading. Her only exposure to mediumship had been watching a few television shows, which is why it came as a surprise when one day while working on her computer, psychic medium, Matt Fraser, caught her eye.
Something about the idea of a medium holding an event over Zoom intrigued her. Before she knew it, she was on Matt’s website, purchasing a ticket. If nothing else, she told herself, this would be an interesting way to spend the afternoon. But in the back of her mind, Tamie had two questions she desperately wanted answers to – and only someone with the ability to speak to the dead could help her.
Before the event began, Tamie thought about how she could best position herself to catch Matt’s attention. She knew the attendees would be visible on video, so she made sure she set up her desk and background to look neat and appealing. One of her two daughters came into the room, and Tamie invited her to stay for the event.
Tamie logged onto the call and watched as Matt Fraser introduced himself and explained how he worked. It didn’t take long before he was picking out people and giving them messages from loved ones in Heaven.
It reminded her of long ago, and her memories began to swarm around in her head.
Twelve years previously, Tamie had lost her son, Mitchell, who had died at the age of 22. After all those years, she still had questions in her mind about the circumstances surrounding her son’s death.
Life on the Road
As a child, life had been difficult for Mitchell. Tamie had married young and separated from her husband while pregnant with Mitchell. She eventually
remarried and had two other children. Despite her earnest efforts to create one happy family, Mitchell was always aware of being the stepchild and felt that he didn’t belong. As he got older, he started spending time with a rough group of teenagers. When he started bringing them home while Tamie was working, she feared for her younger daughters’ well-being and safety.
Mitchell and his mother fought about following the rules she had set down for the children’s safety, and at 18, he left home to make it on his own. He spent some time staying with friends and relatives and eventually left to live on the road, traveling around the country by hopping trains and earning money by making up songs about passersby’s and playing his guitar.
The last time Tamie saw Mitchell, he had been homeless for about a year. He was hitching a ride on a train and found himself riding past where his mother lived. He hopped off the train to surprise her. She was thrilled to see him. When he was there, Tamie begged him to stop his rambling lifestyle. Mitchell refused and assured her that he was happy on the road, telling his mom that someday he would settle down – but not now.
“I make up songs, play my guitar for people, make enough money for the people with me, and we all eat together. I enjoy my life!”
Then he said something that chilled Tamie. “I want you to know that If I die riding these trains, then I die doing what I loved.” Tamie cried as he said these words because she felt so scared for his safety and tried to persuade him to stay. She knew in her heart something tragic would happen.
Tamie’s last memory of Mitchell was of him walking away toward the train tracks with his guitar on his back.
A Tragic Accident?
A few months later, the Sheriff got hold of Tamie’s father. He was told of the terrible news that Mitchell had died. Another homeless friend who was riding the train with him woke up and realized Mitchell wasn’t there. Before they had fallen asleep on the train, the two had been fighting and drinking. He called the police and they found Mitchell’s body two miles back on the side of the tracks.
The police were suspicious and held the caller, Tom, for questioning. There was no evidence of what had really happened – and no witnesses. Despite many unanswered questions, the police closed the case, ruling it an accidental fall.
Tamie was left wondering, “Did Mitchell fall or was he pushed? Was he terrified and aware that he was about to die?”
Matt Fraser Answers Tamie’s Burning Question
As Tamie watched Matt work with others on the video meeting, he suddenly turned his attention toward her.
He mentioned a woman, and Tamie’s grandmother popped into her head. “She’s bringing a child who has passed. Did you lose a child?”
Tamie told Matt, “Yes, I did.” He said, “A son?” She replied, “Yes, his name is Mitchell.”
“I feel there was something with the head. Did he fall?” asked Matt. “Yes, he fell from a train.”
Matt could tell that Tamie was crushed just speaking of the tragedy, and she still had some lingering questions about the incident – and he had the answers.
“Your son wants to tell you this. He wants me to convince his mother that what happened was just an unfortunate accident. He had been drinking and having fun on the train until he lost his footing and fell. No one else was to blame.”
Then Matt said something that surprised his mother. “You need to understand that your son is taking responsibility for his actions.”
This resonated with Tamie. “I always taught him to take responsibility for his actions – to own his choices. We had many talks about this topic.”
Matt went on to share that Mitchell appreciated how his mom had always looked out for him, and he knew how much she loved him. His wish was for his mother and his sisters to start to let go and find joy in life again. He knew his mother didn’t want to celebrate holidays because she missed him so much, but he wanted his family to find happiness and joy together. He begged his mother to let go of her guilt and grief and assured both his mother and his sisters that he is with them every day.
Matt knew that Tamie was receiving signs from Mitchell when she asked about her lamp and how it would go on and off for no reason at all. She said, “It seems to happen whenever I am thinking or talking about him.”
Matt shared this final message from Mitchell, “I made a mistake, and I’m sorry. I didn’t feel anything – one minute I was falling, and the next minute I was in Heaven. I want you to know that I’m here.”
Finally, Matt told Tamie, “You need to understand that you were the best mother you could be.”
After the reading, Tamie shared how these words were so precious to her. “It didn’t matter if anyone else in the world believed it. It was a gift Matt gave me. I think it’s wonderful if this story helps other parents who have lost a child.”
Beginning to Heal
Like many parents who have lost a child, Tamie had been tortured with guilt, regret and questions for the first few years. She couldn’t sleep or eat. “Your brain doesn’t shut off – you keep wondering what you could have done differently.”
Then as the years passed, Tamie was just stuck – her life was good, but at times the grief and heartache were overwhelming. She felt alone, sad and stuck. It felt like she was walking through mud, feeling like she just had to accept that she would never find the answers to her questions.
After the reading with Matt, Tamie was in shock for a while. She realized she had been second-guessing and blaming herself to the point that she wasn’t really living.
When Matt relayed Mitchell’s message, Tamie replied, “It feels like I am no longer stuck in the mud.” She realized she had the answers that had haunted her thoughts for all these years. She needed to live her life, knowing that he hadn’t suffered in the fall and that it WAS just an accident. Her son was in Heaven wishing her and his sisters’ happiness – and sending them love.
Have you ever lost a loved one and questioned what really happened to them?
People book readings with me for lots of reasons. Usually it’s because they miss their departed loved one like crazy and need to talk to them one last time and make sure they’re okay, but there are times when people are looking for more from a reading. Sometimes there’s a mystery associated with the death that leaves everyone who knew the person wondering what really happened. When there are questions around someone’s passing, it can make the loss even harder on those who are left behind.
Many times, I’ve been able to give closure and peace by answering questions like:
Was my loved one’s death an accident or a suicide?
If it was a suicide, did they regret their decision before they died?
Did something I said or did cause their death?
Was there anything I could have done to prevent the tragedy?
Did the incident really happen the way the police or witnesses said it did?
Is someone hiding an important detail of what happened?
Was my loved one murdered?
Losing someone you care about is painful enough without having to deal with lingering uncertainty and guilt. On the other hand, knowing what really happened makes it possible to start to let go of your grief and sadness so you can begin to heal.
Was it an Accident or Murder?
I’m not a psychic detective, but from time to time I’ve used my gift to solve mysteries. I have to tell you – these have been some of my most gratifying readings.
When your loved ones come through during a reading, they come through for a reason. They want to
I recently had a mother and daughter attend one of my group online readings. The moment Tami and her daughter appeared on screen, her Son in spirit was standing right there behind them. The mother was struggling with the loss of her son, who had died as the result of a tragic accident. She had some doubts about what had really happened. She had been told he had fallen off a train, but she had a nagging suspicion that he may have been pushed. Her son came through and wanted me to convince his mother that the whole thing had been an unfortunate accident. He had been drinking and having fun on the train until he tried to jump the cars, lost his footing, and fell. No one else was to blame.
He let his mother know that he appreciated how she had always looked out for him, and he knew how much she loved him. His wish was for his mother and his sisters to start to let go – and to find joy in life again. He knew his mother didn’t even want to celebrate holidays because she missed him so much, but he wanted his family to find happiness and joy together. He begged his mother to let go of her guilt and grief, and assured both his mother and his sister that he is with them every day.
He shared this final message “I made a mistake and I’m sorry. I didn’t feel anything, one minute I was falling, and the next minute I was in Heaven. I want you to know that I’m here.”
Cherish Every Minute.
It’s natural to want to make sense of a horrible tragedy, but sometimes the worst things just happen and there’s no logical reason at all. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot from souls who have passed. They’ve shown me how unpredictable life is, and how you have to cherish every minute. They’ve shared their regrets at not taking the advice of people who loved them. They always ask me to let their loved ones know that, regardless of what happened – they are always there.
Following a nearly two-year waitlist for private readings, psychic-medium Matt Fraser is making the most of his spiritual gift amid the ongoing pandemic by expanding his reach for fans and believers of the paranormal with a number of online group readings. Between emotional and often stunning revelations, the Meet the Frasers star has been known to keep audiences at the edge of their seats with his unique approach to connecting individuals with those that have passed. While in conversation with PopCulture.com, the 29-year-old E! personality opened up about the groundbreaking global event and what fans can expect from the group sessions.
“I was nervous and excited but at the same time, I’ve never used my gift in this way,” Fraser said in our series PopCulture @ Home. Sharing how he has read for individuals in one-on-one sessions over the computer, reading for multiple families was a different experience altogether. “I was like, ‘I don’t know if it’s going to be too overwhelming. I don’t know if their loved ones are going to come through.’ [But] we did the very first event and […] the moment people started to appear on the screen — if you’ve ever seen Zoom, everybody just starts appearing — I started to see their loved ones with them as well.”
It was at this moment that Fraser realized how this was not just a humbling moment, but one he could really get behind in helping bring closure for thousands. “The next thing you know, I’m all over the screen delivering these messages,” he said. “It became such a hit that we’ve been doing them again and again and again and again, and we wanted to do something that was really affordable for everybody because, during this time, everyone’s at home, we’re all missing loved ones. We’re all thinking about our loved ones right now — especially those who are widowed, or those who had lost a son or a daughter, or those who are in the house literally by themselves.”
After going on to build an international clientele from A-list celebrities to everyday folks hoping to get in touch with those lost, Fraser shares most humbly how the online events are just $19 to attend and open to everyone from around the world. Of course, with a broader, more global audience, one has to wonder if any language barriers exist — even in the afterlife.
“For private readings, I want to say 90% of my clients are from out of the country and the reason why is because of the fact that they can’t see me in person, so a lot of people have signed up and waited a long time for private readings,” Fraser said. “When I do connect with somebody who speaks a different language — well, usually they speak English, but their loved one spoke a different language — they will still come through to me because heaven is universal.”
Fraser shares how during readings, the spirits will speak to him in a “different” way, which allows him to effectively communicate their message. “The best way I can describe it is that they use universal messages to speak to me. Imagine if I just passed you a photo album of my life and I’m like, ‘Tell me about my memories from my childhood.’ And you’re going through the photo album and you’re saying, ‘Okay, this was your birthday and you were with your grandmother, and you were here’ — and you can tell a story from that photo album. It’s the same way that they talk to me,” he explained. “When they can’t tell me things because there might be a language barrier, they can still make me feel things and they can still show me pictures and visions of things that I can put together to tell a story.”
Fraser goes on to admit he is “so glad” to be able to deliver these messages to those that need it most. “My whole job is about communication,” he said. “What I do is put people back in touch with their loved ones and the way that it works for me is that I see them, sense them, and feel them.” The E! reality star further adds when he’s in the middle of a reading, it’s a very distinct process. “I’ll see the departed and then next thing you know, I’ll hear names, dates, and places, and they’ll make me feel what had happened to them when they had died and if there’s any message there that they have to deliver a family member, they’ll also take the time to do so.”
Helping to bridge the gap between the living and deceased, Fraser shares that when he is facilitating those conversations with the spirit world, a lot happens with his own body. “What’s so crazy is they use all the parts of my body to communicate with me,” he revealed. “The same way that we have the five senses, they’ll use those same ways to communicate with me. So I’ll literally hear them in my ear whispering names and dates to me, I’ll feel what they went through. So for example, if someone passed of pneumonia, I might feel like I’m being suffocated or I can’t breathe. If somebody passed of a heart attack, I might start to feel my heart start to flutter. If somebody passed of a head injury, I might start to feel my head.”
He adds how the same time, some will also show him visions, which are “almost” like being in a dream. “The way that I describe visions, it’s the same way if you were daydreaming. You know how sometimes you just drift off into space and you see different random things? That’s the same thing that your loved ones do to communicate a message with me. They’ll show me memories from their past, memories from before they had died, and even things that are going to happen within the future. Because when our loved ones go to the other side, they can see tomorrow so much more clearly than we can even see yesterday.”
It doesn’t matter if you’re the one passing over or the loved one left behind, either way, it’s difficult to let go.
I’ve seen mothers who were gravely ill hang on with everything they had so they could be there for their daughter’s wedding or their son’s college graduation. I’ve known fathers who wouldn’t quit until they had settled their affairs, and made sure their family would be provided for.
You know that death is a part of life and that Heaven is a beautiful place where your loved one will be at peace and pain-free – but it still hurts to think you won’t be able to spend time with them or talk to them on the phone.
There are ways to ease the pain of letting go. A recent experience I had at an event illustrated this.
What is it like to die ?
A young woman came to an event. She looked like the picture of health. Her mother who’d passed a few years earlier came through immediately and told me her daughter was very sick. She’d been watching from Heaven as her daughter received her treatments.
The daughter came up to me after the event and asked me to tell her about death and dying. What she had to say brought tears to my eyes. She was terrified of dying because she wanted to be there for her two teenage daughters as they reached important milestones – but her doctors were telling her she didn’t have much time left.
I had to help her. We arranged to meet one-on-one a week or so later. I explained what Heaven was like but what she really wanted to know was how to reach out to her daughters after she passed.
I recommended she devise signs she could share with her girls—pennies or rainbows or anything her daughters could look for that would tell them their mother was ok.
Right after we talked, she sat down with her daughters to put together different words, songs, and signs they could watch for after she passed. That way she could send specific messages when they were sad, celebrating, or just missing her. It put her mind at ease to know she now had a way to be there for them as they grew up.
About two years later the mother of two young women in the audience came through.
“I feel I know her,” I said but I couldn’t place her.
“She did a reading with you when she was alive.”
The women told me they’d come that night because they knew that if their mom came through to anyone it would be me. Their mother let me know our plan had worked. The daughters thanked me for encouraging them to set up the signs before she passed.
Doing so had made her passing a just a little less painful, and had given them great comfort over the years.
Staying In Touch With Those Who Pass Away.
Not everyone has the chance to set up signals and signs for loved ones before they pass. Sometimes death comes suddenly, and there’s no time. But there are many ways to feel connected to loved ones in Heaven.
Here are just a few ways to keep the close:
1. If possible, arrange for a sign before they die, just like the girls did in the story I just shared with you.
2. Write a letter to your loved one and “send” it to them. You can burn it, read it aloud to their picture, or if your message is short, write it in the sand at the beach, and let the tide wash it away.
3. Create a personal shrine with a picture of your loved one and something that belonged to them. This doesn’t have to be a “traditional” shrine. Anything that is meaningful to you, set in a place where you will see it often, will keep their memory close.
4. Look out for coins, cardinals, butterflies and dragonflies. These are all classic ways that souls in heaven reach out to the living.
5. Pay attention to songs on the radio – you might hear one that was significant to both of you, like a song you danced to at your wedding, or it might contain a message that resonates with you at that moment. Either way, it’s their way of reaching out to you.
6. Write down your dreams. Dreams are probably the most common way the dead bridge the gap between heaven and earth.
7. Talk about them! Keep their memory alive with others, but don’t focus on their death. Sharing happy memories and funny stories is what attracts them and brings them closer.
8. Visit a place they loved. This doesn’t have to be a big production. Of course, you can travel across the globe (when it’s safe to fly) but you can also go to their favorite restaurant or park.
9. Don’t be afraid to be happy and enjoy your life. Souls in heaven are not jealous or resentful. Their greatest wish is for their loved ones to live their best life.
10. If you’re not sensing the presence of loved ones, be patient. They might be adjusting to the transition. It sometimes takes souls up to a year to come through to a medium, or to send a sign to loved ones.
As a psychic medium I wish that I could loan a pair of my eyes to every single one of you so that you could truly see that your loved one in spirit is right by your side. Of course that can’t happen, but I did the next best thing.

What do you get when you bring two crazy big Italian families together -a reality hit TV show! The E! network series “Meet the Frasers,” follows Matt Fraser, a 28-year-old psychic medium and Alexa Papigiotis, his 21-year-old pageant queen fiancée as they live their lives in small town Cranston, Rhode Island.
In ‘Meet the Frasers,’ fans are able to peak in on their everyday lives. Matt communicates with passed loved ones, Alexa’s pageant queen life, the couple’s engagement reveal, and their adorable cats who always seem to steal the spotlight are the show’s highlights.
This adorable celebrity couple shares how they first met. Alexa explains, “Matt first DMed me on Instagram and congratulated me on winning the Miss Rhode Island Teen USA pageant.” The two later agreed to meet up for coffee and from then on, Alexa knew Matt was the one. Their mutual love vibrations can be felt simply by speaking to them, just as it is clearly portrayed on their show.
The question everyone asks Alexa is, “What is it like dating a psychic medium?” Alexa admits that at first, she was very weary, but soon she witnessed how Matt’s amazing gift touched so many people’s hearts and brought closure to his fans. This has me thinking, we should all find a psychic medium to date, am I right?
Matt is America’s top psychic medium who hosts various group readings around the world. From going on tours, to releasing his best-selling book “When Heaven Calls,” he has also made several guest television appearances on shows like The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Real Housewives, and Botched. This multi-talented psychic medium keeps people on edge when it comes to his group readings.
Everyone wants to know, how did he discover this gift? Fraser explains, “I was around 3 years old when I first saw my grandmother. She was the first soul that I connected with and I started to speak with her as if she was physically present With the ability to speak with souls, there is a process that occurs which has changed over the years, When I was younger I would see spirits of passed loved ones. They would literally be yelling and screaming to me in bed, trying to get my attention.
However, now that I have embraced my ability, that does not happen anymore because the spirits know that I am open to communicating with them whenever they
want.” Fraser knew this was a gift he needed to share with the world on live television.
Alexa Papigiotis previously won Miss Rhode Island Teen USA. The show depicts her prepping for her next pageant – Miss Rhode Island USA. Fashion plays an important role in Alexa’s persona. Her bold sense of style is inspired by iconic women such as Aubrey Hepburn, Victoria Beckham, and Kris Jenner. She loves a clean elegant look and has a fashion project in the works. Likewise, Matt also has a strong sense of style, which he describes as different, iconic, and memorable. Together their fashionable spirits shine through the screen.
