Missing You This Father’s Day

Missing You This Father’s Day

You can still spend time with your Dad on Fathers day, even if he is in Spirit…

Fathers Day can be a wonderful time to celebrate Fathers. The whole family gets together, and Dad gets to be king for a day. But when Dad has passed, Fathers Day can be a painful reminder of your loss. If you’re missing a Dad, Grandfather, or any father figure this Fathers Day, you can honor their memory by connecting with them. I promise, that connection will help ease the pain.

Remembering Fathers and Grandfather who have passed away can be difficult and emotional. We depend on them for so many things, and when they’re gone, even firing up the grill at a family gathering can unleash a flood of feelings and memories. Those feelings are just proof of the love you shared in life and can still share even though they have passed.

Keeping the connection alive.

We turn to our Dads for advice and to help teach us things we don’t know how to do. That doesn’t have to stop when they’ve passed. They are still watching over us from Heaven, and they want to connect with us, to keep helping us. Looking at a picture or holding onto something they treasured or even wearing one of their old sweaters can help you feel that connection.

Remember that they are right with you and by your side. It’s okay to speak to them. You don’t have to be at the graveside or at the cemetery to tell them how much you love them. They hear you through your internal thoughts and when you speak to them out loud. Just a simple “Thanks, Dad,” can go a long way to helping you feel connected again.

Your loving thoughts are a sign from Heaven.

Guess what? When you are thinking about someone you love in Heaven, it’s because they are thinking about you! They love sending you old forgotten memories and special signs to let you know they are close by. They want you to think back and smile and remember them, and know how proud they are of you. Their love is still with you, even though you are a world apart.

A friend of mine got a big promotion last month. “I know Dad would be so proud of me,” she said. “He always believed in me even when I didn’t think I would be successful.” Her father died years ago, before she’d even started this job. “I put his picture on my desk, and every once in a while, I look at him and thank him. I feel like he’s there with me, keeping an eye on me. When I have a problem I’m trying to solve, I look at him and think, what would you do?What do you think I should do? The answer always comes.” And she’s not the only one. I hear from so many people how they stay connected to their Dads and keep getting that advice and encouragement that means so much.

Our Fathers and Grandfathers are always with us. Their presence is the strongest on days like Fathers Day and on special anniversaries you share with them. They love being there in spirit when families gather and share a meal, laughter, and memories. Reach out to them on those special days, and every day! Say thank you, ask a question, even just say hi. All you have to do is remind them that you are open to hearing from them and they’ll find a way to come through – no medium required. Happy Fathers Day!

Opening Your Psychic Chakras

Opening Your Psychic Chakras


Something I really love about what I do is helping people open up their own psychic abilities. That might seem strange…like a famous burger place giving away the recipe to its secret sauce or something. But to me, my job is not about being the only psychic in the room. I want to help people learn how to get connected on their own, so they can get in touch with their spiritual guides all by themselves!

Did you know that you can become more sensitive to psychic connections and to communications from your loved ones in Heaven?

In eastern philosophy, they talk about seven energy centers, or chakras. Each one focuses a different system in the body, mind and spirit. One of the chakras is located around the middle of the four head. This one is known as the center of our psychic and spiritual connectedness. Sometimes this spiritual center is called the “Third Eye.” If you take some time with it, you can open up your psychic chakra to become more sensitive and fine tune your psychic abilities.


The first step is to be open to getting in touch with your own psychic abilities. My friend’s mom has prophetic dreams. I know she could be a great psychic, but the problem is her ability scares her, so she shuts down. Instead of writing down her dreams and making an effort to remember all of them, she only pays attention to the scary ones that foretell disasters. So she thinks that she only sees bad things. I don’t think that’s true. I’ve heard some of her dreams. Even the ones she thinks are “bad” include very powerful positive elements.

In one of her dreams, she saw a young man she knew walking in a snowstorm. The storm was very bad, and there were white flakes everywhere. When she woke up, she had a feeling in her stomach that she had just had a premonition. She knew there had been more to the dream than just a winter wonderland. But the feeling scared her, and she didn’t know what the dream could mean. She didn’t want to tell anyone.

The next day, she learned that the man had been in a fire. He was alright. The “snow” in her dream were the ashes falling around him as he escaped the building. The dream had been prophetic. Yes, there was a bad situation, but the dream was also positive. But my friend still tries to push away these abilities.

If you have premonitions, prophetic visions, dreams, or other experiences that seem psychic to you, don’t let them scare you. Sometimes those dreams and visions are meant to warn you or help you or comfort you. In my friend’s case, there were people wondering if that young man had survived the fire. They had waited hours to hear from him because he had no way of contacting them. Maybe my friend’s dream was a way to give them comfort.


Once you are open to your abilities, meditation can help you connect to your psychic center. Getting quiet and still and focusing on breathing is a way of letting go of the noise in our heads that sometimes can get in the way of hearing the quiet messages we might not know we are receiving. In meditation, sit or lie comfortably and focus on the area of your Third Eye, your psychic chakra. Imagine that space energetically opening up to receive messages, images and ideas. Imagine being filled with light and with the joy of receiving spiritual connections. It might help to put your hand on the spot, to help you focus  your energy there. Stay still and breathe.

Opening up your psychic chakra doesn’t take hard work. In fact, it’s just the opposite. The more you relax and let the energy flow, the more your chakra will open and enable you to get better in touch with your psychic abilities!

I hope to meet you at an upcoming group reading. My team & I have been working hard to add new cities states and locations each week. If there is one thing I can leave you with it’s that each event is so much more that just a show. It is literally a family reunion with Heaven. I hope you will take a look at my upcoming tour schedule by clicking here. Each is a two hour experience where I will be delivering as many messages as possible. There might just be a message waiting for you!

Are You A Psychic Medium ?

Are You A Psychic Medium ?

You May Be Psychic…

A lot of people who come to my shows ask, “How can I tell if I’m psychic?”

Well, the truth is that some people are psychic and don’t know it! We all born with a sixth sense, but as we get older, many people “tune out” and lose it. They might start out extremely psychic, but they begin overthinking and questioning what their intuition is telling them so they don’t benefit from it. Big mistake! Even if you never plan to make your living reading tarot cards or tea leaves, being tuned in is a helpful tool when it comes to navigating relationships, careers, and just about everything in your life.

There are a lot of ways to know if you have a psychic gift. And the best part is that even paying attention to the possibility can help you develop your abilities and improve your intuition. Here are some ways that your sixth sense can show up in your life:


Have you ever seen a spirit? Sometimes it’s a person who has passed. Sometimes it’s a beloved pet.

You might think you’re imagining things, but you might be seeing them as they are reaching out to connect with you. Sometimes it might not be a direct connection. You might see something out of the corner of your eye. And even though you don’t really see it clearly, you just have a feeling you know what it was. For some people, the connection comes in sound more than vision. They hear voices, whispers, or hear phrases out of the blue that make a powerful connection.


Another way that psychic connections happen is through energy. You might feel the energy of a room or of a building when you walk in. A friend of mine was looking for a house. She drove her realtor crazy because sometimes they’d step through a front door, and my friend would say, “no” and go right back to the car. She didn’t know anything about the floorplan or price. She just knew that house wasn’t for her. Sometimes the feelings come when we meet a person.

We can feel their energy and have an instant sense about them. With friends, we might know something is going on even when they don’t say anything. You might suddenly think of a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Make a phone call. You’ll usually find out they needed that call because they have something going on that they need to talk about. It can happen with animals too. Psychic people often have a sense that they understand animals and know when something is wrong even if there’s no “evidence.”


Sometimes you just know that you know. You have a sense that there’s more going on than just what we see with our eyes. You feel things very strongly. You aren’t surprised when something unusual happens…as if you already knew it was going to happen!


When you are getting in touch with your psychic abilities, you might get ideas that seem like premonitions or spiritual contacts, but sometimes it’s hard to tell what are psychic connections and what are your own thoughts and ideas. It can be helpful to start a journal and write down the things that come to you. If you have a dream that seems important, take a moment to write about it right when you first get up…before you forget!

When you have an experience like some of the things we’ve been talking about, write it down. Write about the feeling you had, and what you did. A couple days later, look back and take some time to review what you’ve written. See if there are connections. See if there are some things that still seem to be psychic connections and if some things now seem to be just good ideas. Over time, as you practice more, you might start to see connections.

If you’re wondering whether you have psychic abilities, that means you’re open to the possibility. And that means, the answer is probably YES!

Can Negative Spirits Hurt Me?

Can Negative Spirits Hurt Me?

Understanding Negative Spirits, Souls & Energy.

Sometimes people ask me if all connections to Spirit are positive. “What about bad people who hurt me while they were alive? Can they hurt me after they’re gone?”

A friend of mine bought a beautiful old mansion in Newport to use for entertaining. Her family didn’t spend much time there, but when they did, they were uncomfortable. My friend asked me to come to the house with her because after she had some odd experiences. She thought the house was haunted. When I got there, I could sense a great sadness associated with that house. I felt emptiness, coldness and stagnant energy. The moment I walked in I felt that I was not welcome.

Even though the house was beautiful, it felt cold, sterile and airy – like a hospital. I told her it was really just an energy imprint, not a haunting. While I was there, I was shown that the original owners of the house had experienced tragedy. Their energy was still in the house. As I told my friend, it wasn’t a haunting. The house needed my friend’s energy.

An Energy Imprint is also referred to as an “energy haunting”. When a tragic, violent or emotional event happens in a house or a certain area, that energy can be left behind leaving an imprint. Even though there may not be any actual “ghosts” there anymore, you may still feel uneasy, sad or scared in the area. This is why so many people feel these sensations when visiting haunted placed like the Lizzy Borden house or the Winchester Mystery House.

I told my friend to infuse the house with her family’s happy, loving presence. The house needed to be recharged with positive energy, with day to day events, meals, sunshine and fresh air. She started going to the house during the day to work. She even took her pets to the house, so they could run and play in its rooms. Over time, her family’s positive energy replaced the old stagnant energy. Some of that old spirit was still in the house, but when the new lifeforce was allowed to come through, it edged that old energy out.

Crossing Over

Since we are all energy, things we interact with keep traces of our energy. That energy can stick around after we’re gone, but it’s not really the same as what people think of as “haunting.” Hauntings are rare and usually indicate a problem with a soul crossing over. Mediums can assist in replacing old energy, like I did with my friend, but transitioning the living over to Heaven is God’s work.

Souls have to be light to cross over. When you die, you let go of old pain, trauma and resentment. On the other side, we have to forgive and be forgiven and let things go. Sometimes, souls are too heavy to cross over, usually because of some darkness in their lives, and they become stuck. That’s what we think of as hauntings.

Those heavy spirits that get stuck here can’t hurt you when your own energy is positive. As my mom said, the only people you have to fear are the living! Still, there are some things you can do to get yourself some extra protection….and these techniques help with those earthly encounters too!

Psychic Protection Rituals
  • Imagine a mirrored wall surrounding you, forming a wall and reflecting negative energy away from you.
  • Get to know your angels and guides, and call upon them to protect you.
  • Burn sage to clear stagnant energy out of any living space that feels uncomfortable to you. It really works!
  • Take a few steps to infuse new spaces with your own energy. For example, I like to personalize hotel rooms by putting a photo of Alexa and our cats on the nightstand. I also play some of my favorite disco tunes!
  • When all else fails open the windows and let in the sunshine and fresh air.

Some people think being a psychic medium might be scary or a morbid way to make a living, I don’t see it that way at all. On the contrary, I feel blessed to be able to spread light and help the living heal by letting them know that their loved ones in Heaven are still with them and wishing them the best!

How Can I Get Read At A Group Reading Event?

How Can I Get Read At A Group Reading Event?

 How Can I Improve My Chances of Getting Read at a Psychic Group Reading?

My group reading are what I love doing the most. It’s so great to have personal interaction and meet so many of you up close and personal. 

Most people come to group readings hoping to hear a message from their loved ones, and sometimes people are disappointed when they don’t receive a direct message. Some people do the strangest things they think will help them get a reading.

At every event it amazes me how some people come hours early to be first in line and rush to the front row seats in hopes of “being seen” by those in Spirit. People bring their loved one’s belongings, memorabilia and even ashes. One woman even brought her husband’s glass eye! People try all kinds of things to get a message. But does any of that really work?

Here are some things to remember about attending a group reading with a psychic medium…

Sit Anywhere

When you come to a reading don’t worry about where you are in the room, it doesn’t matter where you sit. If your loved one has a message, that message will find you. I have had messages for people sitting at the back of a room as often as I’ve had them for people at the front. The important thing is to come to the event with an open heart and a positive attitude.

That is why I treat every seat at my event like the front row. Each event is a group experience, and every seat is a good seat. I might get pulled to the way back corner to deliver a message to a mother who lost her son. Later, I may be pulled to the middle of a row to talk to a woman who lost her sister. Going in, I never know where the messages will be going, all I know is to listen and follow the direction of Spirit.

Be Patient

When your loved one has a message for you, that message will come when the time is right. Messages from Heaven don’t always come when we want them to or when we think they should. The messages come when we need them to and when we are supposed to receive them. Remember that time doesn’t matter, If your loved one passed recently, that doesn’t make it any more likely you will hear from them. Many times, It can be the ones that passed years ago that come through the strongest. If you don’t get a message during a reading, that doesn’t mean your loved one doesn’t want to talk to you. It might just mean that isn’t the right setting, and they will reach you in some other way.

Keep in mind that sometimes it can take up to a years time for a loved one to come through with a message. Not all the time, but sometimes it might take a little longer to hear from that special someone. This doesn’t mean they are not with you, it just means they are waiting for the perfect moment. Spirit will only deliver a message when you are ready to hear it and when it will help bring you happiness, comfort and joy.

Bring Memories, not Memorabilia

Your belongings don’t help when it comes to receiving a message at a group reading. Your loved ones are connected to you. To your loved ones in Heaven, memories and the soul connection you share are much more important than any physical objects. The physical objects are great for helping you feel the connection, but they aren’t necessary to your loved ones. Bring them if they make you feel good, but remember the connection is in your heart, not in your hands.

Have an Open Mind

Sometimes you might attend an event hoping to hear a message from your mom, but your dad comes through instead. It depends who has a message. You might even get a message from someone you don’t like or didn’t even want to hear from. Sometimes an ex-husband will come through with a message to apologize for bad behavior. It’s so important to keep an open mind and be receptive to whatever comes your way.

A group reading can be a great way to learn about the ways your loved ones try to communicate with you. Remember that they are learning how to communicate in this new way just as much as you are. They might come in a way you aren’t expecting, even through someone else’s reading! I have had many people tell me that even when they didn’t receive a message, the feeling of connectedness and hope of being part of a group reading lifted their spirits and gave them hope.

Don’t Let Doubt Stop You From Attending

The saddest thing I see is when someone comments on Facebook and says they won’t come to a group reading because they are not “guaranteed a reading”. I have to shake my head at that. Even during private one-on-one appointments I cannot guarantee that the certain loved one you want to hear from will come through. No Medium can say that for certain. When I channel a message it is a request from the other side, and it is Spirit who makes the decision on whether they decide to speak.

As the old saying goes ” you never know unless you try”. When you attend a group reading, your loved ones see it as an opportunity to reach you and speak to you. If there is a message waiting for you that you need to hear, they will make sure that it gets delivered to you. At a group reading I don’t pick the people, those in Spirit do. I just am the messenger waiting for the next message they need me to deliver.

I hope to meet you at an upcoming group reading. My team & I have been working hard to add new cities states and locations each week. If there is one thing I can leave you with it’s that each event is so much more that just a show. It is literally a family reunion with Heaven. I hope you will take a look at my upcoming tour schedule by clicking here. Each is a two hour experience where I will be delivering as many messages as possible. There might just be a message waiting for you!

What We Can Learn From Skeptics

What We Can Learn From Skeptics

Some People Just Don’t Want To Believe…

I am sad to say that there are some people in this world that do not believe that those you love are with you in Spirit. Being a psychic medium you would think that reading would change people. The truth is, there are some people who are just nonbelievers. As the old saying goes, you just can’t make everyone a believer, but I have accepted that. I have learned to deliver the messages from Spirit and not take it to heart. It’s up to the person I am reading to decide whether or not they want to believe in the message that is delivered.

There are a lot of people out there who question what I do. I get it! The fact that I can talk to dead people is a little hard to wrap your head around. Skeptics are always ready to plant doubts. They’ll claim it’s a trick, and that I don’t really communicate with souls on the other side. Sometimes those same people are getting messages from their loved ones. They just can’t open up their hearts and minds enough to hear them.

I feel sad when that happens because the soul in heaven really wants to have their messages heard.

I’ve had to handle plenty of skeptics. Sometimes they claim I pay people to come to my shows and agree with everything I say. I might do 30 readings in a night. Can you imagine how quickly that would add up?! Or they say that I research people in the audience ahead of time. That one makes me laugh. I never know who’s coming to a show. The tickets are first come first serve, and people sit where they like. And really, that seems like just too much work!

Years ago, I was invited to be on a radio show. I was so excited to be on the air. But when I got there, I realized the “shock jocks”  wanted to make jokes about what I do. It was very uncomfortable. But guess what? People started calling in, and after a few calls, those hosts stopped being skeptics and started to get that this is for real!

After that, they had me visit their radio show pretty regularly and even started asking me questions about their own loved ones. They’d still joke around, of course, but during the breaks they’d pull me aside and say things like, “Hey Matt, can you tell me how my Grandma’s doing in Heaven?”

I understand that it’s hard for a lot of people to accept that it’s possible to receive messages from their departed loved ones in Heaven. Sometimes it’s a conflict with their personal faith or their lack of faith. For other people, they’re just scared of what they might learn, or scared to face feelings they’ve kept bottled up for years.

Their healing might just have to come another way. And that’s okay. But I have to think that being around me while I’m connecting people with the other side opens their minds – just a little – to the possibility that their loved ones in Heaven are a lot closer than they think.

It’s important to remember that not everyone is open to a reading. I’ve had people try to buy readings as gifts for people they love and want to help. It is a kind and generous thing to do, but it won’t work if the other person isn’t open to it. Someone who is closed off to the idea of a reading will not be able to hear it for what it is, and they will find every excuse to explain it away as coincidence or tricks or some type of scam.

If you have someone in your life like that, you don’t need to push or pressure them into believing. Just listen to what they have to say and love them. And look to your own spirit guides to help you know if there’s something you can do to help.

Encountering a skeptic is no different from encountering any negative energy. I try to take all those experiences as opportunities to remember to always keep an open heart and an open mind and be grateful for my gifts. It doesn’t make sense to try too hard to convince someone to believe what I believe. It’s not my place to try to break down their defenses,  but I’m happy when I can open the door, even just a crack,  and let some healing light in.

Spirit is powerful. I’ve seen some pretty skeptical minds get changed completely. In the meantime, I put my energy towards helping people who want my help and get the messages through to the many people whose hearts are open to hearing them. At the end of the day let the life lesson be to trust in what you believe in.
