What’s a Spirit Messenger?

I call myself various things, depending on how I need to explain it, but overall the term that is most comfortable and meaningful to me is

Spirit Messenger.

As human beings, we like our definitions.  They make us feel safe and secure, and give us a sense of being finite, which is also something we like because it gives our minds the impression that we don’t have to worry about infinite possibilities when we deal with someone or something. So here are my personal guidelines for these new age terms.

Psychic has its own connotations. People think it means ‘fortune-telling’ or learning about their future.  I use this word as a segue, and then twist its meaning a bit to help people understand that it’s a more inclusive term than they may think.  We’re all psychic! Psychic means the ability to get information that is beyond our physical senses.  I like what Sylvia Browne has to say about imagination taking credit for many things that are actually psychic.

Mediums have the ability to communicate with the Spirit world.  Many beings and entities reside outside of this physical existence.  Although I’m not exactly sure how to describe the Spirit world, I can tell you that it has many layers. Let’s look at this from a different perspective.   Let’s say you’re from Mars, and you tell a friend there that you communicate with ‘Earthlings.’  Well, from that we could make many assumptions.  First of all Earth is full of different places, cultures and races of people.  You couldn’t say that all of Earth is icy like the poles, and that all people pierce their tongues and have tribal tattoos just because the one Earthling you communicate with happens to have these characteristics, right?  It’s the same with Spirit. It’s not just one destination with one kind of being.  It’s much more infinite!   So being a medium does not only mean talking to those who have transitioned to the ‘other side.’  That is only one kind of mediumship.  Medium, by its very definition, is a go-between, that makes it possible for information to be received.  A radio is a medium.  We take for granted that we can flip on the radio and hear our favorite music.  We forget that the actual sound and programming isn’t coming from the radio.  It’s the medium that picks up the signals and allows us to get the music and information.

Spirit Messenger is a term that allows me the freedom to do all of the things that I do without having to label any of them as one thing or another.  I bring through messages from the Spirit realm.  They could be from a variety of sources, and they can have different meanings for different people.  I have agreed to be the medium- not the source!  I don’t always understand what the message means to the person I am giving it to, I only know what they tell me to relay.  That’s why people like me often ask the sitter what the message means after the reading.  We truly don’t know everything.  We are only channels for the information to come through.  The same way a radio doesn’t contain all of the information and music that has ever come through it and ever will, we do not contain the information.  We only let it pass through us.

I hope this explains a little better what it is that I do.  I consider myself a servant of Spirit.  It is not my job to tell you what to do.  It is not my job to tell you your future– which changes every day based on the decisions you make, and is NOT finite either!  It’s my job to help you understand who you are, and what you are capable of, so you can evolve spiritually and go on to teach others.  We are all each other’s ancestors, and regardless of your earthly identity, social standing, appearance or ethnic background, we are all the spirits having the a human experience. We are all energy, and expressions of ‘God.’

Namaste means that the divine in me recognizes and honors the divine in you.  It is an acknowledgement from my spirit to yours, beyond the physical.  All of that, compacted into one little word.  This is how we should all walk through life, knowing we each have one foot in each world.

  3. Finally!! At age 46, January 2016 I finally came out of the closet about my ability to speak with Spirit. One of the first responses was so you are a medium and without giving it one thought I said no I am a messenger. I heard clearly “you are a messenger”. I am still not sure why but I felt an amazing sense of relief. So glad I stumbled upon this post.


  4. Hi Nicole…was led to your website because I googled “Am I a Spirit Messenger?” Wow….I love your descriptive writing. Your words make sense to my soul. Honestly, I never thought of myself as a medium, because it just felt so strange….I know other mediums and the way they work is not me. Even though I have always done this type of work….I can kind of see into people’s souls….I have never thought any more about it other than I can create some really great homemade greeting cards even if I don’t know the person. And as well, I dream constantly about the deceased. Anyway, because of your website and your great wording…very insightful…I think I know where I’m now headed…at age 66! Who knew! Thank you Nicole. I will continue to follow you and your site. Namaste’


  5. I started reading this article and felt like it all made sense now. Thank you
