How long is a typical reading?
I have yet to have a reading that is less than an hour, or more than 3, so the average is about 1.5-2 hours. There is no way of telling how much information the other side will come through with, which is why I changed my rate structure to be open-ended, as the spirit world does not acknowledge our concept of time and space. I want each of my clients to get the most they can from their reading and not feel restricted by time.
Is a phone reading the same or as accurate as an in person reading? If so, how can that be?
Yes, actually in many ways a phone reading is preferred by many. You and I both can be in our own personal spaces where we're comfortable, avoiding traffic and other hassles. Also, there can be no doubt that the reading is tainted by the Medium reading your body language etc. As I said above, the spirit world is not restricted by time and space, so it is possible for them to connect with you and I both simultaneously, in different places. Additionally, a phone reading allows you the option of having your session recorded as well. Ultimately, it is up to you to choose which is more meaningful to you, based on your needs and preferences, as I am happy to schedule in person readings, and love to meet people personally.
Can you contact more than one person?
Yes, I can, the goal for a Medium is to separate the energies and their messages. I feel that you receive the most complete messages if we focus on the primary few that you wish to connect with, as sometimes with too many, their messages can become abbreviated if they are vying for time, or one energy can overshadow a more quiet energy. They realize that for them as well as for me, time is of the essence, as we all have only so much energy for a given session, and some can be pushier than others. I recommend that if there are several you really need to connect with, tobreak it up into different sessions, to get the most from each being. Also, there is only so much you can absorb, knowing this, they may limit their messages.
Can one reading really help, or will I need more to get results?
For most people, 1 reading really does help, and makes a lasting difference. Unless, as I mentioned above, there are several beings you wish to connect with. Also, if you are interested in connecting with your Spirit Guides as well as your loved ones, I like to schedule separate sessions for this. Sometimes your Guides will come through during a normal reading, but most of the time, they want your complete attention. The process to connect with these types of beings is different, so I prefer to do them separately.
Can I ask questions during the reading?
Yes you may. I actually welcome questions after I have shared with you the preliminary information that I have received. I only ask that if I am conveying their messages, please don't interrupt me, and make a note to go back to later. Often, if I am interrupted they go on without me, so it's important that I keep up. This is especially true with Spirit Guides, as they operate from a higher level, and share a lot of information very quickly. I only ask that your question's intention in not to “test” me or prove to yourself that the process is real. It's disrespectful to both your loved one and I, and is a lack of faith in the process which blocks the energy and the process. You will not get the best reading possible until you are more open , and should wait until then to seek a reading.
I’ve heard that Mediums can’t stay connected for very long, how long can you do a reading?
I have been able to do readings for several hours, it just depends on how long the information keeps flowing, and when I get tired. They seem to be able to tell when I need to be done, and will usually begin pulling away when they feel my energy has dropped. I have not had a reading that is less than 1 ½ hour, and sometimes they can last as long as 3 hours.
If I live overseas can you still do a reading for me?
Yes, we will just need to keep in mind time differences when scheduling your session. Also, you will be calling a telephone number in the US, so just keep this in mind.
Should I take notes during my reading? (benefits of notes vs. recording)
You may take notes, or for telephone readings choose to have it recorded. You can also record your in person session yourself, although sometimes their energy can interfere with electronics and it will not work. The benefit of recording versus notes is that it allows you to focus more on what you are hearing that what you are trying to remember to write.
Will you remember the details of my reading if I forget?
I will not likely remember the details of your reading. Being looked after as I am from the other side, I believe that they know I can not possibly carry the weight of all the emotions and information that is shared in my sessions, without it affecting my well being. This why taking notes or recording your session is advisable for your future reference.
How much information should I share when I contact you?
Every Medium operates differently, some want nothing, some want more. I personally want only the name of those you wish to contact. If you give too much, it can interfere with you feeling that the messages and validations are authentic, that it is indeed your loved one. It also helps me to remain objective and keep the messages flowing, and to know that the messages are coming from “them” and not my mind inserting information that you have previously shared. During your reading, I may ask "Does this make sense? Do you understand the information?" that's when I appreciate validation to know that I am on the right track.
Why do most Psychic Mediums say to come to a reading with no expectations?
For many reasons.. It's important to enter your reading with an open mind and no expectations, being grateful for whatever they choose to come through with. I realize this is easier said than done, but is very important if you want to really hear their messages and validations, leaving you with a sense of peace and satisfaction. It is disappointing for all concerned, if you approach your reading thinking that “if it is really them” that they will come through with specific pieces of information, and if they don't, you discount all the other validations that they did choose to come through with. Many times they will come through with those expected messages, but other times they come through with other, equally meaningful validations. In any case, it's to your benefit to remain open to anything. If you aren't, it blocks the natural flow of energy, and can interfere with their efforts as well as mine. None of us understands the reasons why who comes through, when they do, in the way they do. If you really want to connect with The Other Side, you have to let that human part of your thinking go, at least for the duration of your reading, it will also enable you to be more open for future experiences of your own, if you learn to do this in your everyday life. Also, they have “free will” just as we do, so expecting them to “prove” anything to you and having expectations about what you think they should say, (or who should come through) is disrespectful on your part. Just as with God, when connecting with the spiritual realm, your ability to have a certain level of “blind faith” is necessary and beneficial.

Spiritual Readings with Aliya
Love IS Stronger than Death
All of my life I have been strongly aware of my connection to spirit, to my "knowing" as I call it, my memory of where I came from, to my closeness with God. As a small child I "knew" things that it seemed other people only wondered about, or were never even aware of. In retrospect, remembering my childhood and the feelings and experiences that I had, it's all very clear to me now what I was feeling then, and why... I am a Psychic Medium. I have been very fortunate that I have never felt confused or ashamed by what I felt or experienced; I never have felt like I had to deny my true self by ignoring my abilities. Because of this, I have known, learned from and loved, many great spiritual teachers along the way. I have honored my abilities and my "knowing", which have blossomed over time, by trusting them and my life's journey. I consistently choose my spiritual path, over the illusion that is laid out before me. I treasure and celebrate my gifts, and remembering that they come from my oneness to God, I can not forsake the opportunity to help others.
My experiences began as an adolescent at our family cabin in Estes Park, Colorado. To start with, Estes Park, for any of you who are unfamiliar with it, is a very powerful place, with a strong energy bond to spirit. My great, great, grandfather built a family cabin there in 1908, which has been loved and used generation after generation. Now that many of our loved ones have passed on to the other side, they are still a strong, guiding, loving force for us there. It is where I was brought to the conscious realization about my gift as a Psychic Medium. I had to learn how to not absorb energy all the time. I had to effectively learn when to use my gifts and how, and how to shield myself from outside forces. I have always taken the responsibility and trust placed in me very seriously when someone reaches out to me for a reading. I know now more than ever ever, how vulnerable and raw a grieving person can be and how important it is to be very mindful and sensitive with how you share messages with them.
I worked in the health care field for 20 years, working with the elderly, my favorite work being Hospice care. I felt that so many people come into this world in joy, and leave it in a state of fear. That is simply not the way it should be. I knew that because of my connection to spirit, I could be with people as they were preparing to pass to The Other Side, to help make that passage full of love, and not fear, by helping them and their families embrace the experience, to know that it wasn't an ending, but the most beautiful of beginnings. This knowledge does not discount the pain of losing a loved one, but it does provide hope and consolation. As a Hospice volunteer, I worked with those in bereavement, and on all other levels of care. I have also worked as a 911 dispatcher, so I have experience with all stages of tragedy and loss from the family's perspective. In addition to my own personality, these experiences have given me the ability to compassionately communicate with, and help those in emotional distress. It is because of these experiences with the elderly and the dying, as well as my support of, and connection to their families, that I am able to offer a unique perspective as a Psychic Medium regarding death, the grieving process, and those who have been left behind, enabling me to provide a calming reading, even if you are in a great deal of pain.
I am profoundly blessed to now live in our family cabin in wonderous Estes Park, Colorado with my family and pets. I enjoy the outdoors, nature, animals, music, cooking, laughing, ethnic dining, photography, watercolor painting, alternative healing, antiques, gardening, writing poetry, reading, art...
Grief is the last act of Love we have to give to those we loved.
Where there is deep grief,
there was great love.
My Story Continues...
Grief has become a very personal, daily journey for me, as I lost my husband Freddie to suicide on December 5, 2017.
I have lost many people in my life, but never was the grief been as profoundly debilitating as that was. As many of you can probably relate, it caused me to re-evaluate my purpose and my life continuing on without him. In some ways, I found comfort in being able to help others connect to their loved ones, in other ways, it was profoundly difficult to be in such a raw state myself,
while sharing in the grief of others. The irony of it all, is that for a Medium, it can be very difficult to communicate with your own loved ones. Consequently, I very much understand the spiraling thoughts of grief and missing your loved one. My marriage with Freddie was fraught with heartache and difficulty, as he was an addict. I had much damage to heal, from both the loss and the hardships we endured. It was a very disconcerting feeling for me to not have a vision for my future. I didn't know what my future had in store for me, so with faith, I allowed myself to be led in the directions that were meant for me.
Within 3 months prior to losing Freddie, I lost 3 close friends, then Freddie, his father, my step-mother my father, a few more friends and 2 very special pets, all within a period of 2 years, as well as several since then. I recognize the choice I have to grow and not be withered by loss and difficulty, as time shows us the affect it can have on both the body and psyche. Every day I choose to do the best I can to take care of myself and find joy, knowing in my heart that my loved ones are always with me, regardless of what tricks my mind plays on me. The memories of them can be so difficult, and yet not having memories, would be unbearable. I am strong enough to do this with grace, and so are you...

The Next Chapter..
Although there was a time I thought I would never marry again, in 2019 I was blessed to meet the most wonderful man, that loves and adores me. For the first time in my life, I was content with being alone, but God had other plans and sent me the man that I always deserved, to share the rest of my life with. Hindsight has taught me how each step leads to the next. Although painful, everything I went through, has taught me about my own worthiness. I deserve love, joy, peace and prosperity. EACH of us does. Healing our old wounds, having faith and welcoming growth, blesses us beyond belief. Our ability to love is endless; loving one person, doesn't mean your love is used up. One love doesn't invalidate another love. God brought us into one another's lives when the time was right,
and because of that, we have found a love that is peaceful, healthy, mature, wonderful, and mutually supportive.
Life, love and death are such bittersweet experiences. When I first lost Freddie, I couldn't imagine what my future would be. But time has shown me the peace to be found in letting go and being open. With time, I have been able to see that things truly do work out as they're meant to.
Freddie and I have both been freed of our pain, to find our peace.

I shall not live in vain."
