Interview Shelly Wilson
Who are you and how did you start your spiritual journey?
Since I was a little kid I was very sensitive. However, being raised in a family of baptist religion and a civil engineer father, we were not really encouraged to ask these kind of questions. I did not pursue in understanding those questions until I was 29 years old, when I had my first intuitive reading and I began exploring more and more.
For me this is what I call a pre spiritual wake-up. It was not until 2008 that I really started working in it, when my Reiki Master told me I was here to shine light on others, so that they see the truth of who they are and you are meant to heal hearts. This was my true AHA, moment and then I became attuned to Reiki, and started trusting the information that I was receiving.
What is Mediumship & Intuition ?
By then I started mediumship development and studied with people like Lisa Williams, James van Praagh, Tony Stockwell and John Holland. After these studies I started offering sessions as a medium, which means that I am connecting to those that have crossed in spirit.
I would rather call myself an intuitive, even though I am a psychic, because psychic often is related to fortune tellers. A fortune teller is not who I am, because I truly honor free will. For me it is all about wanting to assist you in creating your own reality.
A client could come for example for a session and even if the spirit of the person does not come through (which often does happen), I connect to the person who they were and answer their questions. Distance does not matter in sessions, because everything is energy. People could come to me through the phone or face-to-face, that does not matter.
Are people born with Intuitive talent or can they be taught?
We definitely all have the intuitive abilities, however the main thing is that we have to recognize it. Everything around is is energy. We have to understand that we are human, and we have a physical body and we are energetic beings within the psysical body. Once we transition, we no longer have the physical body, but our energy is still there so our loved ones and spirit’s energy is still around us.
How can we communicate with deceased loved ones?
Our passed loved ones communicate with us all the time. They usually come through in the form of animal messengers for me typically a butterfly, dragonfly or a dove. It does not always mean that this is a loved one, but it could also be that the represent them in some way. This is a way for them to let you know that they are there and they want us to find comfort when we see these animals.
Other signs you can think of are numerical sequences or a song that is played on the radio. The biggest way that they communicate with is is when we have a memory of them coming to our mind.
We may think that we have originated the thought, but many times it is them saying remember this. So literally you can just pay attention to the messages in your mind and around you, especially the ones that repeat themselves. The best way to practice is to be relaxed, in that way the messages can come through.
Should we be afraid about Mediumship and Intuition?
Typically as humans we fear what we do not understand and this is where can begin studying. We can read books, we can watch Youtube videos, but the main thing is we are always influenced by our culture, influenced by our parental upbringing and our religion.
Many of the religions tell you, you actually are talking to demons. I do not really believe that, when our loved ones or any spirit is coming through and there is a feeling of love, that means a high vibration for me. This is how you recognize you are connecting to the right beings.
Do you think knowing your future might influence your future?
First of all I feel that parts of are life are already laid out for us. I believe in reincarnation and I believe that our souls live again. When we enter our body, there are some lessons already planned for use. You can come here to learn for example on how to love, how to have compassion or patience, and how it shows up for us is to be determined.
Our life is continously changing with every choice that we make, therefore, I do not believe that a psychic can see your exact future. It is more the outline on what you are here to learn. With every choice that you make, your life is changing as well.
What can you recommend everyone to do during a pandemic like the coronavirus?
This year as described in my book “Embracing the Magic within,” represents the number 4. And this number stands for being at home, connecting to yourself and to your family. It is all about clear vision of where you want to go and who you are. Now with the environment clearing up, we can see clear again, this applies as well to people’s personal lives.
What made you start writing your books?
First of all the first two books that were published are 28 days to a new you and connect to the you within. These books were meant to be courses at first. At the time I did not really like the idea of a course, so I put the whole course in a book form. So the idea I would like to give with the book is that you turn the pages and open it randomly. Then you get a message for each day. These are just tools to connect you to your higher self.
Do you think people lost the magic within themselves?
We have the magic all within us. However, when people look it up in the dictionairy, it often says that it means creating spells and so on, but magic means creating our reality. We should realize that our thoughts, words and actions are creating and is an energetic omission.
By being an example for others, you create a ripple effect and helps others see the magic within themselves again.
