Matt Fraser bills himself a psychic medium with the ability to contact the dead. He has appeared before sold out crowds, written a book on the hereafter, teaches courses and even led sea cruises for believers.
And for those wishing for the chance to hear from long-dead Aunt Edna or Uncle Charlie, Fraser will be at the Bellagio Ballroom at MGM Springfield on Tuesday at 6 p.m. Admission is $52.
“I’ll be doing a two-hour audience reading that will connect people up with their departed loved ones. I don’t like being on stage and prefer literally running up and down the rows of chairs and calling on individuals to stand up,” Fraser said.
Asked if he ever gets a strange request from someone who may want to connect with John Lennon or George Washington, Franz said he “often does.”
“But you have to know that person, you must have had a connection with them in the past,” he added.
While someone may not be able to “see dead people,” Fraser offers an on-line course called “Signs from Heaven” to help them recognize and stay connected with their loved ones.
“I feel everyone has a way to connect with loved ones who have passed to the other side. We all get signs from them and it is up to us whether we acknowledge them or not. For example, one woman told me she kept hearing the song her dad used to sing to her. It was playing in the car, on the radio and in stores she went into. That was a sign. Connecting with the other side is like learning another language….opening your senses to hear and connect,” Fraser said.
The medium also offers live phone or video readings for those who may not be able to see him in person.
“People think that they have to be with me in person to get a reading. That is a misconception. If you are a psychic, a medium, you can read and connect them without having to be with the person,” Fraser said.
There is currently a two-year waiting list for these readings, which come with a disclaimer on his website that reads in part: “Your live psychic medium phone or video reading is subject to your own personal interpretation and the guidance given is intended to be for entertainment purposes only.”
And, Fraser has a message to naysayers.
“I love skeptics who come in and don’t believe in what I can do. And I don’t care, if there is a message for them, I will deliver it. It’s healthy to be skeptical, I understand that. Then you have your non-believers who no matter what you say won’t believe. It’s like going to the doctors and hearing the doctor tell you that you must change your lifestyle, and they say to themselves, ‘I don’t believe him.’ I like a challenge. And if I’m doing a reading on television, radio or in person, I love it if I can show one person who doesn’t believe in heaven….the other side…by giving them a message from someone who has passed that opens up their eyes and profoundly changes their belief,” he said.
Have You Ever Wished You Could To Speak To Someone That Has Passed On?
My favorite part of hosting a LIVE event is watching what happens when I connect an audience member with a loved one in Heaven. I used to worry because I couldn’t do a reading for every single person in the audience, but then I noticed something… It doesn’t matter! Just being there when spirit messages are coming through and realizing that your own loved ones who have passed are still right here, loving you and wishing you well, is life changing.
I do these LIVE group readings to prove that your loved ones in Heaven are still part of your everyday life – they’re right by your side as you drink your morning coffee, drive to work, and especially when you gather to celebrate the season with family and friends.
When someone comes to one of my LIVE psychic medium reading, a few things happen:
They feel the powerful presence of spirit, and the connection with their loved ones in Heaven stays with them long after the event is over.
They become aware of the dozens of signs and signals that friends and family on the other side are showing them each day.
They want to share their eye opening, healing experience with others!
Fans of my events have been asking me to broadcast LIVE readings so they could watch them online, so I finally did it. On December 20th, I hosted a free broadcast with tons of amazing readings, and everyone loved it! This very special premiere gave thousands a firsthand glimpse of what a LIVE Matt Fraser event is like from the comfort of their own home.
People raved about how the spirit connections came through loud and clear even on a phone or tablet. I think lots of people were surprised when they saw a reading that answered a question they had in their own minds. Spirit is funny like that – you might get a message where and when you least expect it. I hope you didn’t miss it… If you did, no worries you can watch the event highlights from the broadcast below.
P.S. Spirit works in mysterious ways – you might recognize a message that’s meant for you while you watch.
Watch Psychic Medium Matt Fraser Reconnect An Audience With Their Loved Ones In Heaven
If you’re interested in the ‘Other Side’ and have been on a spiritual journey for awhile now, you’ve likely heard of Matt Fraser, an internationally-renowned psychic medium. Let’s face it – his team seem to have nailed it on the Google search front – Matt is easy to find.
When I first began this journey of experiencing the work of ‘spiritual voices‘ and interviewing them, mediums were at the top of the list, largely because I knew so little about mediumship. While I’m dozens of books into the topic now and have had about the same number of experiences, it still feels relatively new.
Although there are certainly similarities to every medium’s experiences (as children and adults), each is divinely gifted with an ability to bring love, peace, connection and healing in very unique ways. Just as therapists have their own raison d’etre and particular style with working with people, so does the medium world.
When I first visited Matt Fraser’s website, my first impression as a long time publicist myself, was “whoah, these shots feel so glitzy,” as if somehow a celebrity persona and mediumship couldn’t go hand-in-hand. The truth is that other “in-the-limelight” mediums like Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo who Matt says he admires, project a similar “Hollywood-like” image from a quick visit to their site. The more you dive into the spiritual world however, the more you realize that who we show up as in our ‘human body’ may be a far cry from the voice of our soul and Higher Self.
While I haven’t connected with Caputo personally yet, what I’ve seen of her work shows me an outgoing and ‘so not shy in front of a camera’ gal, yet she comes across as down-to-earth and let’s face it….damn funny. The same genuine nature holds true with Matt Fraser.
My Experience with Matt Fraser
My personal experience with Matt was anything but “glitzy” – his warm, authentic voice and soul is all about giving and healing those he works with in his life. During our interview, one of his childhood stories even brought me to tears.
Early on in our chat, I learn that his grandmother was a gifted psychic although a closet one, for what New England catholic woman would go public with such a rare gift in the 1950’s? Matt says, “Grandma Mary, who was the first spirit I ever communicated with, died when I was three. She was a psychic in hiding her entire life — she was ashamed of it.”
Matt too ‘had the gift’ for as long as he can remember, hearing and seeing spirits as early as three years of age, but like so many children mediums who first fear the unknown, he tried to shut it down. After having a psychic reading in his late teens, where he was told he would be a famous psychic someday, bringing his gift to many, it made him explorer a little deeper. After all, at the time he was working for the World Trade Center as an EMT and had his career laid out as a ‘healer’ in a different way. How could this future prediction really be true?
When he relayed this reading to his mother however, she surprised him with a response he didn’t expect. “When you were born, Grandma Mary said that you were a psychic and had this gift,” she said. Into a household closet she went and pulled out a homemade card deck that his grandmother had made for him out of construction paper using old fashioned magic markers to create special symbols, characters and so on.
“What kind of symbols?,” I asked him. Matt replied, “she had a red hat man, an older gray haired man and there were different topics like job, love and relationships and so on.”
Although his grandmother didn’t believe in tarot card decks, in essence, the ever so talented Grandma Mary had perhaps created one of the first “Oracle” decks of the time, however one no one got to see her beautiful work because she had to hide from such a treasured gift.
“Grandmother made these for you right after you were born,” his mom, who also has psychic gifts, said during that very special day when she also relayed to Matt that his Grandma Mary could speak to the ‘Other Side.’
While psychic mediumship may not be frowned on as it once was at the turn of the century or in the more recently 50’s and 60’s when Matt’s grandmother was in her prime, the Spirit World is still largely feared and misunderstood.
For example, Matt tells me that there are some TV shows and companies who won’t invite him to speak because their audience may be too religious and still fear that his work is not of “God.”
The sad truth is that it couldn’t be further from the work of “God” however not in the way that so much religious dogma preaches it. In fact, Matt, like so many other psychics and mediums I have talked to, open a reading with a prayer, whether this is to “God, “God Light,” the “Highest Possible Light,” the “God Head,” “Christ Light” or simply “Divine Love White Light.”
There are others that are used, but these are the ones many use and I frequently hear mediums ask for protection from Archangel Michael (Matt Fraser included) and other angels, ascended masters and guides, to ensure that the reading is from the highest possible place and source, and to guide them on our journey.
While surely there are non-authentic mediums and psychics, for every charlatan, there are countless others infused with pure spirit, committed to serving others, for service is often how many mediums describe their life path.
For example, in a recent interview with respected medium John Holland, he says he conveys to his students: “If you embark upon a path of mediumship, understand that it is a life of service.”
Matt Fraser gets this too and sees his life as a path of service to others. Thousands of readings later, Matt has made a career from talking to deceased loved ones of so many, bringing them messages of hope, comfort, and healing. I am not excluded but I’ll save that for the end.
Not unlike the early days of another famous psychic James Van Praagh, Matt would hear whispers from spirits in his room at night, which is known to be a common time when spirits try to communicate with us, whether we’re psychic or not.
Matt says that his biggest gift (and joy) is that he can bring people a sense of peace that their loved ones are always there, watching over them, sending messages of love and guidance, and sharing in their life’s happiness. He adds, “it is truly the gift that keeps on giving.”
“When connecting with the other side, I am blessed to learn something new every day.”
I asked Matt about Earth-bound spirits (sometimes referred to as ghosts) and unlike so many spiritual teachers and mediums I have talked to, he says that earthbound spirits are rare.
Renee: “What about if they died a tragic life, like suicide or in a war?” ( I was thinking about so many of the cases that Diana Palm often works with in helping spirits “cross over.”)
Matt:They rarely stick around for too long. Mostly, they find a way to cross over as loved ones will come to get them, and bring them into the spiritual realms.”
He asserts that when people pass over tragically, they have to let go of the burdens and emotional traumas this entails so they can work on healing on the other side.
Renee:How is your mediumship work different from others?
Matt:One way, is that I offer validation. I do this in different ways, from delivering names and dates to locations and particular memories. When I work in a crowd, I don’t like to do “group” readings but will go up to a person I am feeling energy from and stand in front of them and might say, ‘your father is standing behind you and wants you to know that he is here with you always.’ That kind of thing.
He reminds us that our spiritual family can see so much — they are around us all the time and even visit family celebrations. We started to talk about his work more specifically at this point.
Renee:What advice do you give others before you work with them and ‘how’ do you work with those who are grieving?
Matt:Often when the grief is so heavy, it can act as a barrier to communication for me. (I was surprised by this response btw). If you’re not able to hear and see signs from a deceased loved one, you may be hurting so badly that you are unable to connect.
The same happens with me and is one of the reasons I have a policy to wait at least a year after someone has lost a loved one before I do a reading for them. (I was also surprised by this).
Renee:Is this because you can’t connect with them before then?
Matt:I’ve been able to connect with a spirit within a few days of their death, however it isn’t a constant. I would rather not disappoint people with a reading that isn’t as strong and clear as it could be. When people first pass, there’s a lot of ‘letting go’ to do so their souls can be free.
When someone crosses over to the ‘other side’, that spirit needs time. They reignite with parents and other deceased family members. For some spirits, transition can be quick but others can take much more time to begin a healing process. By waiting a year, I find that my readings are often more clear and in-depth. I feel that providing a more accurate reading is more fair to my clients.
When Spirit does come through to Matt, he says it comes quickly and naturally. “Does that mean you are mostly a mental medium,” I asked. He says that as soon as he stands next to someone, the information just comes. “The messages are always so different,” says Matt.
He reflects as he talks about an experience he recently had at the Providence Fire Department where he spoke for a benefit. “Mostly, I just ‘hear’ things I’m supposed to convey,” he adds.
Matt Fraser doesn’t ask questions because he doesn’t need to. “There’s no turning off ever,” he says with a soft laugh.
Renee:If it’s mental, then communicating with other cultures should be automatic then yes?
Matt: If a spirit did not speak English in the physical world, I’ll ‘feel’ what happened in their body, including how they died, if they’re trying to convey that to me.
I’ll also hear names, places and faces. It’s like ‘reading’ pictures. Spirits will ‘paint’ a picture — it’s almost like watching a movie. I’ll see visions in front of me — visuals. Sometimes, it’s verbal. It’s quick when it comes through. They often want to convey a message of healing to those they left behind.
Like so many other spiritual teachers and gurus, Matt asserts that there’s a widespread awakening now that is unprecedented in history even if you don’t hear about it in your day-to-day life. Be sure to read my article on Thomas Hübl who is focused on raising global consciousness to prepare for the next wave in our evolution.
Even though this ‘awakening’ is becoming more prevalent, Matt Fraser largely deals with grief and helping others communicate with their deceased loved ones in a way that brings on healing. Then he hit me with another surprise.
“I limit my clients to only one reading a year.”
Renee:“WOW,” I found myself saying. “Why is that?”
Matt:I feel that one of my biggest gifts is that one reading should be able to give them enough comfort and healing to last. They shouldn’t rely on me for healing – that needs to come from within and when I do a reading, I hope that the communication that I relay is special and healing enough that they don’t need to get ‘hooked’ on needing readings.
He says, it’s not about the money for him and that it’s about helping others. And help them feel more comforted he certainly does.
Of course my mother (the grandmother who raised me) came through pretty clearly towards the last half of our session just as she did in spades during my time with John Holland. I had to laugh however when Matt said that she wasn’t the first ‘spirit’ he saw however — it was my grandfather who still feels very protective of me. He was tough in his human body and still is on the other side.
My mother acknowledged how great at networking I was and constantly helping other people but had to add that it was well overdue for me to step into my own limelight. I had to laugh because as wearing two hats in my life — one as a publicist and the other as a writer, it has always been about helping others shine.
Each time she comes through however, her voice is getting stronger and stronger, something she couldn’t do as a woman born in 1916. It’s almost as if Gaia and Goddess energy are helping her spirit shine brighter and brighter on the other side. This alone gave me so much joy.
Before our call ended, he quickly added, “I see another father figure – do you have another dad?” I laughed softly and said yes. He went on to communicate what Dad’s spirit wanted to say to me. Without going into the details as my father was a pretty complex and trauma-filled man, let’s just say that Matt’s message was incredibly accurate. Just remember that letting your spirit family know that you forgive them, that it’s all okay and that you still love their souls just as they are, gives healing back to them just as their communication brings healing to you on the Earth plane.
Imagine gifting that to countless people week after week, year after year. While there are clearly many who still don’t believe that the spiritual realm exists, for those who are open and ready for healing and letting go of old trauma and energy that no longer serves you, genuine psychic mediums like Matt Fraser can help you sail along on your journey just a little more smoothly.
I can understand why those who have the ‘gift’ like Matt Fraser say ‘it’s not about the money’ It’s because they inherently know that it is their Soul’s Purpose and when you’re living your Soul’s Purpose my friends, everything will be in alignment.
That said, Matt Fraser certainly has made his business a prosperous one between hosting sold out group events, private readings, and his book The Secrets to Unlocking Your Psychic Ability, which is available on Kindle and Paperback over on Amazon.
Additionally, in March 2018, he’ll be doing his first cruise with Holland America to bring his work into the open seas. For more information on Matt and his world, visit his website.
Remember “The Sixth Sense,” the M. Night Shyamalan thriller about the little boy who sees dead people?
For psychic medium Matt Fraser, his first experiences communicating with the dead were very similar to the iconic big screen images of young Haley Joel Osment hunkered down under the covers in his bed.
“When I was four, my grandmother passed and, at first, it started with her coming to visit me. She would talk to me at night. It wasn’t scary, it was comforting,” recalled the 25-year-old, the third generation member of his family to have “the gift.” “Once she started to reach out to me, other spirits came to me.”
At first, Fraser kept the visits secret and even resisted.
“As a child, I didn’t understand it. The more I tried to push them away, the louder they would become. Every day, I would see them in front of me, whispering in my ear, louder and louder…I didn’t realize they were trying to utilize me as a way to communicate,” explained Fraser.
Fraser eventually reconciled the gift with the hesitant support of his mother, but remained firmly rooted in the realm of the living, pursuing training as a paramedic and physician’s assistant.
“I saw what I was doing on a physical level—as an EMT helping people—and I realized I could use my ability to help people on an emotional level,” he said quickly with a thick accent. “The job found me. It was a calling from God.”
As the New Englander continued to mature, he became more curious and began to envision how his abilities might comfort others who had lost loved ones.
The “floodgates” really opened, he said, as he began to fully embrace that calling. Fraser travels the country, giving group readings to audiences of as many as 150 people. He also gives private readings, but maintains a year-long waitlist. He’ll return to South Florida for a group reading in West Palm Beach on Sept. 17.
Fraser’s goal is to reach as many people as possible. He’s expanding his tour schedule and working on new books, including one for children who are expressing similar abilities to connect with the other side.
“So many people are looking for some type of closure or to heal or know that the other side is real. I want it be a positive experience,” Fraser said.
One point Fraser makes before his sessions is that he tries to make sure they are uplifting for all. There are some malevolent spirits on the other side:
“It’s very rare. There’s good and evil in the world, everywhere you look. I always ask for information on the other side that is the highest and best. I always say a prayer before a session, asking for healing and validation. If it’s not there to lift somebody up and help someone in the audience, I’m not going to let it come through,” he explained.
Fraser also inserts humor whenever possible during the tense moments in a group reading.
He looks forward to another visit to Florida, one of his favorite destinations.
“My day is filled with voices of the living and the dead. I like to be as far away from people as possible,” he said, expressing his preference for a deserted beach as a top escape. “I love to be by the water.”
Matt Fraser compares himself to Haley Joel Osment’s character from “The Sixth Sense.” He sees dead people, or so he claims. And he wants to connect you to the spirts of your friends and family members who have passed away.
A 24-year-old Rhode Island native, Fraser says he began seeing ghosts after his maternal grandmother died when he was a child. It’s a gift that runs in the family. He says his grandmother and mother also had the ability to communicate with the dead.
But Fraser is the first in his family to turn his “gift” into a full-time job. He travels up and down the East Coast, doing group readings before rooms of several hundred people. He’ll perform on his “Medium with a Message” tour at the Westford Regency Inn on Sunday to a sold-out crowd.
Skeptical? Fraser understands. He’s convinced, however, that after attending one of his shows (which typically cost $40), you’ll walk away a believer. We talked to Fraser about what it’s like communicating with the dead.
When did you first start seeing and hearing ghosts?
When I was about 3, 4, 5 years old. I remember being in my bedroom at night, pulling the covers over my head because I was so afraid of seeing and hearing voices.
Was it frightening?
It was terrifying. I had a really hard time accepting death and understanding what death was because while everybody was mourning my grandmother, I was having these experiences where I was seeing her. She would come and visit me at night and talk to me. She would literally sit on my bed and read me stories.
What did your family think?
My mom wanted me to embrace it. She’d say, “Talk to them. Find out what they want, what they’re looking for.” I wasn’t interested in what they had to say. I was more concerned about pushing it away and not hearing them.
How did it impact you at school and with your friends?
They thought I had a problem. They asked my mother to bring me to a psychiatrist because they thought I wasn’t able to let go of my grandmother. They thought I wasn’t having the experiences, that I was making them up. My mom brought me to different psychiatrists at the time until she realized some of the things I was talking about only her and my grandmother knew.
If your mother also has the ability to communicate with the dead, why did she bring you to a psychiatrist? Wouldn’t she believe you?
She didn’t want to get caught up in wishful thinking. There were so many people in the school department coming up and saying, “You know, you need to pay attention to your son. Your son’s having issues,” that I think my mom decided to bring me to a psychiatrist just to check and see.
At what point did you decide to turn your ability into a business?
When I was 18 years old, I started my journey as an EMT. I really thought that was my calling. But I decided to look back deeper into my abilities, dealing with what I was experiencing as a child. I was much more mature. I wasn’t as afraid of it as I was. I started reading for some friends and family members. The next thing you know, I was asked to be on TV and radio shows, and it’s turned into me doing this full time.
Can you also see into the future?
A psychic is someone who can see and read into the future, whereas a medium can communicate with the departed. Mediums can see into the future to some extent, as well, because of the fact that the spirit they’re speaking to often can see tomorrow more clearly than we can see today. I’ll talk to those who have passed on, and they’ll say, “Please tell my daughter that she’s getting married and going to have three kids,” or, “I see her going on a trip. Let her know I’ll be with her.” Things like that.
You wrote a book called “The Secrets to Unlocking Your Psychic Ability.” Can anyone communicate with the dead?
To some extent. We all have intuition. Intuition is the building block of psychic ability. It’s a feeling that the phone is going to ring, and the next thing you know, it does. It’s when somebody pops into your mind that you haven’t heard from in years, and the next thing you know, you get a message from that person, and you say, “Oh my God, I was just thinking about you!” I feel God gives us all a way to reach someone who is in heaven. It’s up to us to take the step forward in starting the communication with that person.
How do you communicate with the dead? Do you have a conversation, or is it more abstract?
I use all of my senses. When I walk into a room, I’ll see the figure of a loved one standing behind someone. As I start talking about that person I saw, I’ll start feeling things. For example, if someone passed from a heart attack, I’ll feel my heart flutter.
What do the ghosts look like? Are they see-though, like on TV?
To me it looks like an actual person. I’ll see them, and then they vanish. It’s like a quick glimpse.
What age are they?
It’s the way their family is most going to remember them. If you lost a son at age 6, he’s going to come back at 6 years old. He’s not going to come back at age 30, or being the age he would be today, because you wouldn’t recognize him. Sometimes they’ll come through younger if the family lost communication with that person, though.
Why do people come to your shows? Are they looking for a fun night of entertainment, or are they desperate to connect to someone who died?
Everybody who comes has lost somebody in one respect or another. I think a lot of people walk in skeptics. I like that. I do feel there are a lot of people out there who aren’t as gifted as they say they are, or aren’t really psychics or aren’t really mediums. There are some frauds out there. I don’t blame people for being skeptical. I always ask those on the other side to tell me things that nobody else could possibly know or validate, things that you can’t find online, things that you can’t Google, things you can’t make up or look up.
What do you think of the fraudulent mediums who take money from emotionally vulnerable people?
To be honest with you, there are con artists and people who are frauds in all different walks of life. There are doctors who have malpractice suits. There are people around us that you have to be leery of in life. I think it goes for every single profession. I think what they’re doing is wrong, and it hurts people. I don’t think they’re providing any closure or help if they’re lying about it.
Have you ever used your ability to solve a crime? Could you talk to the spirt of someone murdered to find out who the killer was?
I have been contacted by investigators on different police cases. You have to remember, when the police come to me, it’s when they have no leads, nothing. A lot of times they’ll come to me to be steered in the right direction, but it’s ultimately up to police and law enforcement. No psychic or medium is ever going to be able to solve a case on their own.
Any cases we would have heard of?
There was this dog search in Connecticut. This woman had lost her dog in a break-in. They were having issues finding the scent of the dogs, so I was brought in. They put a map in front of me and said, “Where do you think these dogs are?” I pointed on the map. They were in the complete opposite direction of the search. They brought in the dog trackers, and they picked up the scent. They followed it for a long time, until they lost it.
Can you communicate with dead animals, too?
I can’t talk to them, but they do come through during readings. If there’s a grandfather who had a dog he loved and cared about, you better believe that when he comes through, he’s going to have that dog with him because what happens is the personality never leaves that person.
Can you communicate with spirits who speak foreign languages?
Yes. They have a universal way of communicating. I’ll see quick images in front of me, where I’ll see the moment before their passing, how it happened. Or I’ll feel, internally, the things they were going through with their illness before they left this world. It’s almost like downloading data, and I put it all together to form that loved one’s story. It’s almost like storytelling.
