Are You An Old Soul?

Are You An Old Soul?

The Perks and Pitfalls of Being an Old Soul


I have to say, these last few months have been pretty amazing. I married my soulmate, Alexa, went on an amazing honeymoon, I’ve got a brand-new book coming out, and I’ve been back on the road hosting LIVE events all around the country. I’ve even done shows in Las Vegas, which was a dream of mine for years. But my life wasn’t always like this. If you’d told me I’d be on stage in Las Vegas when I was in high school, well…I’m not sure I would have believed you!


When You’re an Old Soul in High School


Everyone asks me, is there a hell? Yes, it’s right here on earth and it’s also known as High School! To say that my high school years were difficult is an understatement.

People assume that the fact that I speak to dead people was the reason I didn’t fit in with the high school crowd, but that wasn’t it. For the most of that time I didn’t let anyone know about that side of my life- I had pushed it away to the point that I had almost forgotten that I had psychic abilities. But what WAS an issue is that I was an “old soul” trying to connect with a bunch of kids who were basically obsessed with sports and partying.


How Heavy is Your Baggage?


Growing up, my mom and grandma always said I was an old soul, but I didn’t really get what that meant. I asked my mom once, and she said it was because I wasn’t like other kids. I was very sensitive and tuned in to the feelings of other people – even strangers, and she felt like I was “born knowing things.”

That’s pretty much the definition of an old soul. If you believe that we’re all energy, and part of a universal life source, then an old soul is connected to that wisdom on a deeper level (and from an earlier age) during their lifetime.

New souls enter the world to experience things for the first time. It’s like they’re traveling through life with an empty suitcase and filling it up as they go along. Everything feels new to them, and their journey is all about learning lessons. An old soul comes into this life with heavier baggage – filled with karma and memories – so they approach things from a whole different perspective. Because of this perspective, they have a hard time relating to the things that their peers care about so desperately.


How to Know if You’re an Old Soul


If you, or someone you know is having the kind of experience at school or work that I did back in High School, maybe their “old soul” is the reason. If you’re wondering if you, or someone you love, is an old soul, here are some characteristics to look for:


  • You feel like an outsider. Like I said, old souls are approaching life from a different angle than other people, and their unique perspective makes It hard for others to relate to them. If they’re in an environment where everyone is trying hard to fit in, sensitive old souls can be left out of things, or become the target of bullying.



  • You know right away when you’ve found a kindred spirit. On the flip side, when you meet a like-minded person (another old soul) you really click. And that’s an amazing feeling.



  • You feel connected to everyone – you’re sensitive to animals, strangers, plants, and flowers. Your empathy can be a burden or a blessing. You might cry when you watch the news, but you also understand people. When you find people you can trust, it’s easy for you to get close.



  • You’re more self-aware than most people. “Old souls” tend to look inward and examine their behavior and feelings. This pays off, because they recognize when they hurt others, or make a choice that doesn’t serve them.



  • You see the big picture. Because an old soul is tapped into universal energy, they tend to understand things on a different level. They can’t just focus on how something impacts them without also seeing the impact of others, their neighborhood, and the planet as a whole.



  • Finally, you have a gift that you can’t really explain. You sit down at the piano and can play by ear. You have an eye for color and design that comes naturally. Or maybe you can talk to dead people.



Living Your Best Life as an Old Soul


If you checked a lot of these boxes, congratulations! You CAN thrive as an old soul in a world full of newbies if remember these simple tips.

  • Find your tribe and connect with them often. Everyone is not going to totally “get you” but it’s critical to have other like-minded people that you can spend time with to recharge and relax.


  • Do meaningful work. I always knew I wanted to help people, first as an emergency medical technician (EMT), and then as a medium. When I recognized my gift, it was like my whole life lit up. I was in the right place, and that resonated down to my soul.


  • Enjoy life. Don’t let that heavy baggage weigh you down! Feed your “old soul” with music, art, spending time in nature, good food, good friends, and loving pets.


I can hardly express how grateful I am to be spending my time doing work that’s fulfilling and that has such a healing effect on other people. I feel like I’m doing exactly what I was put on this earth to do – and that makes my “old soul” very happy!

Book Cover with Matt Fraser standing with a gold jacketPsychic medium Matt Fraser, the author of When Heaven Calls, is back with a book that answers the question everyone wants to know the answer to: “What happens after death?” Although the answer might seem complicated, it’s actually pretty simple: We never die.

Drawing from his personal experiences as America’s top psychic medium and the thousands of conversations he’s had with those in spirit, Matt will pull back the curtain on life’s hidden question. He’ll dive into what happens when we cross over, explore the beautiful realities of heaven and eternal life, the guardian angels who keep us safe on earth (including our pets), and much more. He’ll also explain how we can tune into our own inner psychic medium and better recognize the signs and messages our loved ones send us from heaven. As Matt explains, “We all have our own ‘phone line’ to communicate with heaven. All we have to do is figure out how to use it.”

Touching The Spirit World: Beyond the Psychic Veil

Touching The Spirit World: Beyond the Psychic Veil


Are you wishing you could have a conversation, maybe even wrap up some unfinished business with a loved one who has passed over? Have you ever wondered if there’s an optimum time to connect with souls in Heaven? Let’s talk about that!


Recently, I was asked to appear on the TV show Good Day Sacramento. One of the very first questions they asked was what is the Psychic Veil and is it true that the veil is thinner around Halloween?


First, let’s talk about the veil itself. It sounds pretty mystical, but it’s just an invisible separation, like a membrane, between our world and the spirit world. The spirit world exists all around us, but it is not always easy to see or feel. That’s why people often look for ways to open the door so they can feel close to the people they’ve been missing.


Opening the Door to the Spirit Realm


Halloween is over, and the veil IS often thinner during this time, but the reason isn’t the least bit scary, and it has nothing to do with Halloween or hauntings or ghosts.


Holidays or seasons don’t “thin the veil,” we humans control that through our intentions and awareness. The more that we talk about the spirit world and seek out the souls who live there, the closer we bring ourselves to making contact, and the more permeable the veil between the two worlds becomes.


So why do people think the veil is extra thin now? Special times like Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, weddings – anytime you are likely to think of loved ones who have passed – draws souls closer. The holidays are all about love and family and giving, and even though they might not be there in body, they still want to be part of that.


When Loved Ones in Heaven Are Close Enough to Touch


Your loved ones in heaven are always around, but they’re waiting for YOU to invite them to come closer with your thoughts. Every single time you think about your loved ones, you send a signal to them in spirit (kind of like Batman shining his spotlight in the sky). It’s not a one-way street, either. Souls in Heaven want to let you know they are around, and because they are pure energy, they will reach out and communicate with you differently than they did when they were alive. They most often will try to get your attention through SIGNS or visit you in your dreams.

Because spirits are energy, you might actually see your loved one appear in a photo or a video as an orb. Spirit orbs are usually white or yellow and often have an aura around them. This makes them stand out from other types of light orbs that may be present in the picture as well. Although they are unseen with the names eye, they can be seen after a photo has been taken when a loved one in spirit is near.

This is because the orbs are not actually your loved ones, it is just a reflection of their energy that the camera captures when they are nearby.


Simple Ways to Cross The Veil During the Holidays, or Any Day


There are many ways to include loved ones in Heaven in your holiday plans. Here are a few you can try:


  • Talk about them, and share happy, funny, loving memories.


  • Make them part of family gatherings by making their favorite recipe, displaying a photo of them, even setting a place for them at the table.


  • Write them a letter, then release it and keep your eyes, ears, and heart open for a sign from them, letting you know they received your message.


  • Keep a dream journal, and before you go to bed, set your intention to dream about your dearly departed. Then as soon as you wake up, write down everything you remember about your dream encounter.


The holidays are a natural time to feel the presence of spirits, but know that any time you’re thinking about them, they will be there. And the more people who are thinking about them, the more powerful the pull is.

For example, many people tell me that when they attend a live group reading either in person or online, they start to feel those in spirit with them as I start too channel and deliver messages, even if its not their loved one that’s coming through.

The reason being is that when you are present during a reading, and messages are being delivered, you can also feel the presence of that soul. Some people get the chills, some get emotional and others feel a sense of peace knowing they are there. That’s what makes it a group experience.

If you would like to attend a group reading event either online or in-person, Click Here. You’ll see for yourself the powerful energy we create together when we reach through the veil with our thoughts, and connect with loved ones in Heaven.

What and Where IS Heaven?

What and Where IS Heaven?

When you think of a loved one who has passed, I hope you’re remembering the good times you shared, their funny quirks and favorite foods and all the character traits and experiences that made them who they were in life.

But there might also be times when you want to imagine them the way they are right now. You might picture them happy, healthy and pain free. But when you visualize your loved one in Heaven, what do you “see” around them?

Does your mind go straight to images of clouds and huge, golden gates? If that seems too much like a cliché, then what exactly DOES Heaven look like?

As a psychic medium, I get asked that question a LOT! Now, I’ve never been to Heaven, at least not that I remember, but I’ve gotten thousands of impressions from souls who I’ve connected with over the years. And I can tell you, Heaven looks different to everyone.

That’s because heaven isn’t clouds, pearly gates, or golden thrones. It’s energy. And while we’re talking about what Heaven is and isn’t, let me share one more thing. Heaven is not in the sky…


What and where IS Heaven?


Heaven is an invisible world made up completely of energy that is right here among us. It’s nowhere and everywhere.

Like electricity, it’s all around us, but we can’t see it. To the living it seems like a far-away place, but to our loved ones in spirit, it feels like they have never left earth. They’re still connected to the earth because there of the people they love and watch over.

As a medium, I feel the presence of Heaven all around me. Some people think of their loved ones as in the air, the sky, the clouds – but I sense them, and they’re much closer than that.

Another way to describe it is with this simple analogy. We’re all under one sun, and it feels like it’s right in our backyard – but actually people all over the world can see it.

Heaven is a place made entirely of energy, and that’s why it can never be seen, altered, or destroyed by the living. I’m a medium, but I’m still a physical being. My impressions and insights about Heaven come from my connection to souls who reside there and not from personal experience.


What does Heaven look like?


Heaven can be compared to something you experience in your dreams, because it can be anything you want it to be. A great dream is going to be different for everyone, and Heaven is the same.  You’ll experience your own paradise surrounded by the things that you love.

For some, Heaven is a place of rolling landscapes, beautiful mountains, and flowers, to others it’s a magical city – a clean, idealized version of a city on earth.


“Design Your Own Space in Heaven”


Your idea of Heaven is going to be different than mine, because souls create their own version that makes them happy, and that’s the energetic space where they reside.

I know it’s hard to fathom, but I think of Heaven as a big condo building. The building looks the same on the outside, but inside no two units are the same. They are all different floor plans, decorated in different styles. That’s the reason why religion flows so harmoniously in heaven. Everyone can have a different religion and a different idea of heaven, and that’s what they experience when they die – but they’re all in the same “place.”


A Fisherman’s Dream


I did a reading for a woman whose husband was a fisherman. When I connected with him he was on a boat in the middle of the ocean – doing what he loved most. His wife was a little freaked out because, “I want to be with him when I die, but not in a fisherman’s heaven!” I had to explain to her that she could still be with him while having her own version of Heaven.

The great thing about Heaven is that you don’t have to compromise, and everyone gets what they want.  

Some people don’t want anything to be different than what they had on earth. Many souls come through sitting in the same house they lived in all their lives. They loved their home, so they carried it over and made it their Heaven. It’s the same with clothing, and jewelry. Souls come through wearing their wedding ring, even though the actual ring is here on earth – it doesn’t make a difference that on earth, the ring has been sold, is sitting in a safe deposit box, or their daughter is wearing it.  

That doesn’t mean that there is a jeweler in Heaven. Just like we put ourselves together with clothing and accessories on earth, in heaven we reflect the things that are meaningful to us. A grandmother who loved to have her whole family to Sunday dinner might show up in an apron – because that symbolizes who she was in life and what she loved. Who would Michael Jackson be without his white glove? You can be sure if he came through to a medium, he’d be wearing it.


No Compromise Required


Here’s one more crazy thing. You can be with a loved one in Heaven – together – and both perceive your environment differently. Unlike in a marriage or relationship on earth, there’s no need to compromise. When you reconnect with a soulmate in Heaven, you both get exactly what you want.


Closer to Loved Ones in Heaven


One thing I love about being a medium is that when I share messages from the dead or describe what Heaven is like to the living, it helps everyone feel closer to the friends and family members they’re missing. That’s very healing! When you’re able to imagine your loved one and feel them close to you, it’s as if they’re not gone at all – they’re just in a different space.

That’s one reason I created my online spiritual courses. These classes are ideal for anyone who wants to open themselves up to the Spirit world and receive more signs and messages from loved ones in Heaven. And just like this blog helped you understand just a little more about what Heaven is actually like, my audio and video classes will help you learn about the spirit world and stay connected to those you love.

Why Do I Keep Waking Up At 3:33am?

Why Do I Keep Waking Up At 3:33am?

Has this happened to you? Despite how early or late you try to go to bed, you keep waking up at the same time on the clock every night: 3:33am or 4:14am.You stare at your alarm clock thinking, why does this keep happening?

You may even feel a presence with you or a cool breeze that comes over you while you sit in your bed having been woken up without a cause. It may sound a little crazy, but there is a reason why. Someone you love and miss in spirit is trying to get your attention.

Those you love and miss who have died, miss you just the same as you miss them. The moment they get to the other side, they want to be able to check in on you and their friends and family members. Just as much as you are trying to reach them, they are trying to reach you; they just have to figure out how. As a psychic medium, I have noticed that those in spirit use different ways to try to get your attention. New spirits or souls who recently have crossed over start to try to reach you through spirit touchpoints, the first being numbers. It’s a simple way for them to open the door and start communicating with you right away. 

So, let me ask you, have you lost someone recently?

When a soul recently passes within the last year or year and a half, it is normal for them to try to reach you by waking you up at odd hours of the night. Normally, it’s a friend or family member you were close with who just so happens to be trying to get in touch with you. They are waking you up not to scare you, but to get your attention. Many times, those in spirit can’t reach you during the day because your mind is preoccupied with day-to-day happenings. When you are in a quiet, silent or calm space, a spirit knows that’s the best time to try to communicate. Normally, this is while you are sleeping.

In the beginning, they will wake you up at the same time and keep doing so until they have your attention. The cool part is that it actually works! If you are reading this right now, it is not a coincidence. You probably were googling waking up at 3am or it may have been shared on Facebook and got your attention. Know that by reading this right now, you are receiving a sign from a spirit.

So, a spirit has your attention; now what !?

Once your loved one has gotten your attention, it’s up to you to acknowledge their presence. Saying something simple like, “Okay Dad, I know it’s you” or thanking your departed husband for coming and checking up on you will show him or her in spirit that you are open to them coming to visit and that you are ready to start communicating with them. When they realize you are aware of their presence trying to reach you, they will start to find other ways to get your attention, normally through signs during the day. You will start to notice random coincidences and things that make you think of that special someone. Anything that you think is a sign or that reminds you of that special person is in fact a sign.

 When do these signs come, and should you look for them?

The best part about signs is they come when least expected but most needed when you are missing someone you love. Opening yourself up by acknowledging your loved one is all you need to do. These signs will come much like a post card would. It is your loved one’s way of supporting you and letting you know that they are standing there and with you. They send signs to remind you they love and support you, but they do not want to interfere or stop you from living your best life.

It’s important to remember that your loved ones are only a thought away. When you think about them and reminisce about the times you had with them, they are close by. Heaven is not a faraway place; it is an energy space that is created for your loved ones to rest in peace as they watch over you until you are reconnected and reunited again. In the meantime, continue living your best life, achieving new goals and milestones. Your loved ones will make sure they don’t miss out and are with you all the way.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Afterlife

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Afterlife

If you have ever wondered what your loved one was doing in Heaven or even what Heaven is like, you have come to the right place! As a psychic medium, I have conversations daily with those in spirit and have literally given hundreds of readings. Through my conversations and visions, I have learned some incredible secrets about Heaven and the afterlife. Here are 10 things that might come as quite a shock to you…


  1.  Those in spirit literally can see EVERYTHING you do, but they don’t judge.


Yes, it’s true. Your loved ones in Heaven are with you every day. They can see everything you do, but they aren’t in Heaven saying, “OMG, what a messy house,” or, “My granddaughter is REALLY dating him!?” They respect your privacy and can tune out what they focus in on. Their goal isn’t to judge you; it is to love and support you. They want to help guide you to where you need to be and to the path you need to follow. Most of all, if you are happy, they are happy.


  1. The departed have jobs in Heaven.


There may not be Starbucks or Macy’s in Heaven, but rest assured those in spirit have divine tasks they choose to take on when they make their transition to “the other side.” Do you wonder where those “signs” come from that you see? It could be a family member in spirit or a soul who is protecting you from above.


For example, someone who has passed because of an accidental drug overdose will often watch over those in the physical world who are going through similar situations to help them reach out and find the help they need. Many times, those on the other side will help in hidden ways to get that person help and to keep them from going down the wrong path. They do not want to see that person make the same mistake they did. That person in spirit may choose to appear to the person they are helping in signs, songs or even by randomly meeting a stranger who knows just what to say to help that person make the choice to go to rehab. Coincidences just do not happen.


Those in spirit will help guide that person to make the right choice, but at the end of the day, we all have free will, and it is up to us to pay attention to the signs and to choose the right path.


  1. Even family members you never met or weren’t close with are there watching over you.


Before you are even born, you start your journey on “ the other side.” This is something you don’t remember, obviously, but you met grandparents and great-grandparents even before you were born. It all goes back to the reminder that nobody ever starts or stops their journey here in life alone. Many times while giving readings, I have delivered messages from grandparents who passed long before the client was born, and there have even been times when I have read for clients who were adopted and their biological family came through whom they never knew. At the end of life, we are all reunited in Heaven, and its the biggest family reunion you could ever imagine.


  1. Sometimes couples don’t end up back together.


It’s shocking, I know! Many times I have given readings when the mom decided her 2nd husband was much more suitable for her than the first one who had passed away. It sounds shocking, but those in spirit don’t mind. Things are so much clearer once we leave this plane. It becomes clear that some souls have a stronger and divine love connection than others. The good news is that if you and your first wife decide to call it quits in Heaven, you may have an old ex flame who re-enters your life from years ago. Soul mates do reunite.


  1. The departed go through a life review. It’s like TSA, only in the spirit world.


When you leave this world and transition into Heaven, you go through what those in spirit tell me is a life review. Because Heaven is a place of peace, there is a process of letting go of the baggage. While you make your transition, you leave your physical body behind. You also leave the illness, sadness, resentment, and anger you once carried. Think about it: if everyone brought their problems to Heaven, it wouldn’t be a place of peace; it would be daily drama. That is why their message to us here on Earth is to make peace and enjoy those around us while we have the time to do so. Love deep and laugh often. If it doesn’t make you happy, it is not worth holding onto. Release it to the universe and lighten your load.


  1. Pets do make it to Heaven.


Yes, pets make it Heaven, and it’s called “The Rainbow Bridge!” Yes, it exists! Anything that comes from God goes back to God, and if you lost a pet, rest assured that they are safe and at peace on the other side watching over you. Oftentimes, in my experience, they even come through with relatives and friends who have passed as well.


At my recent group reading in Stamford, Connecticut, I was reading a woman in the audience when all of a sudden, I saw a big fat orange cat in spirit. I asked her, “Did you lose a cat recently?” She said no! Then all of a sudden, I heard a spirit whisper to me and say, “The cat’s name is Pumpkin.” I said, “Are you sure? They are telling me the cat’s name is pumpkin.” The woman was floored. She said, “That’s my friend’s cat that just died! Why is he around me!?” The truth is that soul recognizes soul here in this world, so even your friend’s pets or pets from other family members might be watching over you. The best part of all this is that even childhood pets watch over you.


  1. Those who commit suicide do find peace in Heaven. Many times, they regret it.


I have held the hands of many families who have lost someone tragically to suicide. From what I have been told by those souls who have crossed over, Heaven is a place of peace and forgiveness. I have never spoken to anyone who passed away in this manner who has told me they were in a place besides Heaven. The most frequent message I receive from spirits to pass on to friends and family is, “I am safe and at peace and forever watching over you,” and that they are sorry for the heartache and pain they left their family and friends with here in the physical world.


Many times after a soul crosses over, they realize they didn’t have to end their life. They can see how supportive their family REALLY was and how the depression made them think the opposite. Many times they realize their suicide was not an act of depression but rather a mental illness that was causing them to feel pain. Many times during my group realigns, those who pass in this way will rush to the front to help their family heal by providing a message.


  1. Everyone speaks the same language in Heaven. There is no language barrier.


It seems that no matter how many readings I do, I am always asked the question, “Can you speak to my loved one, even if they did not speak English?” The answer is yes! Spirits have a special way of communicating with me using a unique and special universal language.


Because of this, I have been very blessed to have had the honor of having a world-wide client list. I have connected with clients in India, China and even Iceland! Many of the souls I have spoken to in spirit did not speak the same language as me, but I was still able to connect and give the reading. It is amazing that no matter what language you speak or what religious background or ethnicity you are, one thing remains the same: your loved ones are with you always, looking to connect and speak with you. When you visit a medium, you are actually opening the door to communication between you and “the other side.”


As a medium, those in spirit use different techniques and vibrations to be able to get their point across and hold a conversation with me. Many times, they will even use my entire body to communicate and to pass on messages through me. That is why when you read for someone, it is called “channeling” a loved one in spirit. When I say channel, I don’t mean a television channel. What I am referring to is a divine channel that your loved one uses for me to be able to speak and communicate thoughts, feelings and emotions. It is almost like they put me back in their body to allow me to experience what they experienced here in the physical world.


  1. Heaven looks and feels different for everyone.


Heaven is a place that is entirely created by you. Just like you can design the inside of your house differently but live in a neighborhood with people, it is the same thing in Heaven. Many times, it is a direct reflection of what that person loved here in this world. For example, if you are a mountain climber here in this world, Heaven might be a place of great heights and magnificent views for you. If you loved the ocean, your kind of Heaven may be relaxing in the middle of the water. It’s similar to virtual reality. The one thing that remains consistent is that everyone in Heaven automatically knows one another and can see one another. Oh, and there’s no time there as well.


  1. Those in Heaven never lose their personality. It lives on with them.


“Pull my finger.” If you grew up hearing your grandfather say this again and again, then it is typical they will do the same when you reunite with them in Heaven. I love when those in spirit use their personality to communicate. When they come through with jokes, wisecracks or their little quirks during a reading, family will usually yell out, “OMG, THATS THEM!” It’s true, they stay the same! During one reading, I had a man in spirit stand in front on me and pull his dentures out. When I told the family, they started crying, laughing and wincing in disgust all at once. They said, “He used to do that all the time and chase us around the house with them.” They come through in this way to remind us that death does not make us different. It is just a final gathering place for all those who were sick.
