My Experience With A Psychic Medium

My Experience With A Psychic Medium

If you believe that something is real, it will be inexplicably real in itself

A few days ago I met with a psychic medium and it was one of the craziest and best experiences of my life. Now I know that many people will say that this was a waste of money and a scam but does it really matter if it was real or not? I personally believe in mediums especially after meeting with one because the things that she brought up were impossible for her to know.

One of my professors said something really interesting in a lecture one day that I think about a lot. She said that if you believe that something is real, it will be inexplicably real in itself. What she meant by this was that if you think something is real, no matter how much you know it is false or outrageous, it will still be real to you. She used the example of kids being afraid of monsters under their bed. This is a perfect example of this theory in action. My family went to this medium to get comfort for our extreme grief about the loss of my father and that's what we got.

The medium knew about the littlest things such as my back injuries and the scar I have on my foot. She knew my dad's nickname for me, that I decorated my graduation cap for him, that I have jewelry made out of the flowers from his funeral, that I thought he was mad at me, that I haven't watched Pretty Little Liars because it was our show, that I blame his doctor for his untimely death, things I said in my eulogy for him. It was all too much. Now I know you could argue that some of these things could have been "lucky guesses" and I respect that, but to me, she was too spot on.

She also said things about my grandparents on both sides and other people that I had lost in my life. She told me about my future husband and children and even told me things that I often say. She knew where I worked and she knew my mom heard their wedding song last week at the grocery store.

For the sake of argument, let's just say this was all lucky guesses and coincidences. Even still, my mom, sister, and I all got the closure that we have been desperately needing for almost 3 years. We went into this meeting hurting badly and left breathing a little bit easier. We all felt better because we heard the things that we needed to hear. So whether or not you actually believe in the power of psychics and mediums, it doesn't matter, it still helped us.

We heard the things that we needed to hear, that he was okay, that he was at peace and with his family, and that he loved us, was watching over us, and was proud. My dad apologized over and over again for having to leave us because he didn't want to but he said he just couldn't stay any longer. To be honest, I really don't care if she made that up or not because that is something that I have needed to hear for years. That's something that has been weighing on my heart and hurting me and when I heard those words, there was an immediate weight that lifted off of me and I finally felt peace.

The stages of grief are ever changing and are not a linear line, but they say that the last stage is acceptance. I don't think that we will ever truly accept the loss of our loved ones in the way that we are okay with it. I have been in denial about my father since he passed away and I think that I can finally say I am at peace with it and I understand that he is gone. I know that I will never be able to physically be with him and talk to him, but I know know that he is listening to me and is with me wherever I go. And I know that I will be okay because I know that he is finally not hurting because there is no pain or anger in Heaven. He's with his family and he is finally happy and healthy and that's all I've ever wanted.

So whether or not this experience was based in fact, I am choosing to believe that it is and that decision is bringing me the peace and clarity that I have been praying for since I was 16.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

After 'Extremely Wicked' And 'The Stranger Beside Me,' We Now Understand The Criminal Mind Of Ted Bundy

1 hour and 50 minutes, plus 550 pages later.

Netflix recently released a movie in May called "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" (2019), based on the life of Ted Bundy from his girlfriend's viewpoint.

In 1980, an author and former Seattle police officer, Ann Rule, published a book about her experience and personal, close friendship with Ted Bundy, called "The Stranger Beside Me."

These two sources together create an explosion of important information we either skim over or ignore about Ted Bundy. Watching this movie and reading this book can really open your eyes to who Ted Bundy really was. Yeah, there are the confession tapes on Netflix, too, but these other things can really tie it all into one big masterpiece of destruction.

I swear, it will blow your mind in different ways you never thought possible.

In the movie, "Extremely Wicked", Zac Efron stars as the infamous Ted Bundy, America's most notorious serial killer. He portrayed the murderer who kidnapped, killed, and raped 30 women or more. Personally, he made a great Ted Bundy, mannerisms and all. Lily Collins stars as Ted's girlfriend who was easily manipulated by Ted and believed that he was innocent for years.

The movie is told in the order that Liz, Ted's girlfriend, remembers.

In the book, "The Stranger Beside Me", Ann Rule writes about Ted Bundy, who used to be her old friend. They met while working at a crisis center in the state of Washington and were close ever since. Like Liz, Ann believed he was innocent and that he was incapable of these horrific crimes.

Ted Bundy had made both Liz and Ann fools. He easily manipulated and lied to both women about many things for years, his murders being "one" of them.

Okay, so we all know that Ted Bundy was absolutely guilty as hell and totally murdered those women. 30 women or more. He literally confessed to that, but researchers and authorities believe that number to be way higher.

But... you must know that the movie and the book tell two different stories that lead to the same ending. That's why it's so intriguing.

At one point, I couldn't stop watching the movie. Then, I bought Ann Rule's book and was completely attached to it. I couldn't put it down.

For me, Ted Bundy is interesting to me. Unlike most young girls today, I don't have a thing for him nor do I think he's cute or hot. I know that he used his charm and looks to lure women into his murderous trap. That's why it's so hard to understand why this movie and book created a new generation of women "falling in love" with Ted Bundy.

GROSS: He sodomized women with objects. He bludgeoned women with objects or his own hands. He was a necrophile. Look those up if you have not a clue of what they mean. That could change your mind about your own feelings for Ted Bundy.

After "Extremely Wicked" and "The Stranger Beside Me", I now understand the criminal mind of Ted Bundy. He was insane, but he was also smart, put together, educated, charming, and lots more. That's why I'm so interested in why his brain was the way it was.

The criminal mind is an interesting topic for me anyway, but for Ted Bundy, it was amazing to learn about.

I highly recommend both the movie and the book I quickly read in two weeks! If you want answers, they are there.
