I am a new client, what should I expect before my reading begins?
When you come into Laura’s office, you will be asked to fill out a New Client Form. If you book a telephone or Zoom reading, she will request your address and payment information before your reading begins. This information is not shared with anyone, sold to anyone or used in any way to determine any information about you. She may occasionally send mail and/or email to clients to inform them about special offers. If you prefer to not receive information about special offers or discounts, please notify Laura.
After completion of the form, Laura will explain how she receives information from Spirit and ask you if you would like a mediumship reading or a psychic reading, i.e. receive information about a specific topic or concern. She will then open her awareness to Spirit or tune into your energetic vibration and your reading will begin. During your reading, you will be asked if you understand or can validate the information being given. It is requested that you give a “yes”, “no” or “I am not sure” answer.
If Laura cannot read for you for any reason or if you find that your reading is not accurate, you must stop the reading within the first 10 minutes by telling Laura and you will not be charged. No refunds will be given after the first 10 minutes.
Laura does not seek to predict death or illness. She does not give medical diagnosis. Her readings are geared toward allowing you to achieve the best and highest outcomes in your life.
Can I connect with a specific person during my mediumship reading?
While Laura will strive to connect with your loved ones, she cannot guarantee that your loved ones will communicate with her on demand. She also cannot guarantee that a specific loved one will communicate with her, give her a specific “keyword”/validation or the length of time they will communicate. Please try to have an open mind and heart and understand that while it might not be the specific person you wished to speak with, the Spirit and information that does come through can be important and meaningful for you.
Do pets ever communicate during a reading?
Yes, they do. Laura has brought through and received messages from dogs, cats, birds, horses and even a beloved pet goat.
What could I experience during a Reiki session?
Reiki works with the energy field of the body. During a Reiki session, you may experience tingling as well as feel heat or other physical sensations. You may feel very relaxed or fall asleep. You may also feel a little lightheaded. Further, you may feel the release of unhealthy feelings such as anxiety, stress or sadness. Please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with Laura about a Reiki session and/or Reiki’s health benefits.
Please wear comfortable clothing for your session. Please bring a clean pair of socks to wear during your Reiki session. Reiki packages are available.
