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 served, 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.

THE OBSERVER: Believe it or not, Matt Fraser Connects

THE OBSERVER: Believe it or not, Matt Fraser Connects



Whether or not psychic medium Matt Fraser can channel the voices of the dead is a subject I’ll allow the pundits on the web to debate ad infinitum.

Since, I didn’t have the chance to have a reading from Matt Fraser at his Jan. 6 appearance at Foxwoods Resort Casino, I can’t judge how his words lined up with my own experiences.

But, if you were looking for a scam artist in action at the Grand Pequot Ballroom, Fraser didn’t appear to fit the bill. Yes, he shilled his book and autographs at the end of the afternoon.

However, mostly what I saw, was a young man facilitating a conversation with women and men who are hurting.

Fraser’s arrival at the casino was an opportunity for those gathered to speak about a common human experience– the grief people feel after someone has died. It also tapped into the desire for many to believe there is something more to life than birth and death— a desire that buoys all of our religious institutions.

The guests were the true heart of Fraser’s appearance. There were many moments where I found myself on the edge of tears as the guests– who were primarily women – shared their stories of loss and how they longed to hear from their husbands, fathers, mothers, sisters, and brothers. The grief in the room was palpable and jarring in its familiarity. The stories shared easily could be the stories of you or me.

Fraser is a charming young man. He is funny when there is a need to calm the nerves of those he says the spirits urge him to address. He is serious when the messages he must convey are serious. He expresses compassion when the grief of his subject is too overwhelming.

Setting aside his psychic abilities, Fraser appears to be a shrewd judge of human nature. He is able to cajole people to express emotions that may have been bottled up for too long.

And Fraser’s spirit seems genuine.

Sometimes when we are hurting, we need to talk. We may turn to a therapist. We may turn to the clergy. We may turn to a sibling. We may turn to a bartender. We may turn to a strange.

If there was any value of Fraser’s appearance Jan. 6, it was that people were given the chance to talk about their pain. And if you believed in Fraser’s abilities, there was someone listening from beyond who truly cared.

Matt Fraser will be making the following local appearances over the next six months. For details, go to MeetMattFraser.com
