INTRO: HOW I BEGAN TESTING PSYCHIC MEDIUMS
If you are new to my websites, you might not know that I was once a
steadfast skeptic when it came to psychics and psychic mediums. I was skeptical
about pretty much anything related to the paranormal. I certainly didn’t
believe that anyone had the ability to read our energy, as psychics claim.
And, like most people over a decade ago, I had no idea that anyone even
claimed to communicate with spirits. It wasn’t until 1999 that I
stumbled upon my first psychic medium and my entire world changed.
As a former private investigator, I was instantly intrigued with the
extraordinary evidence I’d received in my reading to indicate proof of
an afterlife, so I was inspired to investigate psychic mediumship further. And, as
a recently published author, I was looking for a subject on which to write
my next book. Having been blown away by this reading of spirit
communication, I chose to investigate and write about psychic mediums.
Little did I know this pursuit would consume me for the next decade,
possibly the rest of my life.
Now, more than eleven years later, I have continued to research and write
about psychic mediumship and have tested hundreds of psychic mediums across the
globe. I’ve learned a wealth of knowledge about spirits and the
afterlife, including a wide array of information from the accumulated
experiences of the gifted people I’ve tested, interviewed and
investigated. Today, OfSpirit.com Magazine, BestPsychicMediums.com,
GriefAndBelief.com and BestPsychicDirectory.com have all resulted from my
work in this area.
BestPsychicMediums.com in particular is a site I created for my list of
personal favorites—the psychics and psychic mediums I personally recommend as
extraordinary and outstanding. My recommendations are based on who gave me
the best readings. I started this list in 2001. However, as time has
continued, my standards for what makes a psychic medium extraordinary and
outstanding have increased, so it has become increasingly difficult to get
on and stay on my list. Hence, as of today, I have not added anyone to my
list for two-and-a-half years.
THE 1ST PSYCHIC MEDIUM TO MEET MY STANDARDS IN 2 ½ YEARS
This article marks a special event because I have finally found someone
who has met my standards and qualifies for my recommended list. I am
especially pleased and excited to introduce you to Jennifer Farmer, a
single mother, a lively and kind-hearted young woman, and an incredibly
gifted psychic medium with abilities that are slightly different than
anyone I’ve recommended thus far.
What most excites me about Jennifer’s reading style is that she
integrates both “psychic insight” with “spirit communication” for
an information-packed reading that gives us answers and direction from
both sources. What she calls an Intuitive Reading utilizes both her
ability to read energy (as a psychic) and her ability to receive messages
from spirit (as a medium) to provide us with the desired guidance that we
seek and might not trust from our own intuition.
In a normal reading with a psychic medium, we are generally given messages from
deceased loved ones as evidence that they have lived on in the afterlife.
Most people go to psychic mediums in order to connect with a loved one who has
In a normal reading with a psychic, on the other hand, we are generally
given messages about ourselves based on information the psychic receives
from our personal energy field (aura) or Universal energy. The psychic
might typically tell us something about our personality, about the issues
with which we are struggling, and then proceed to give us future
predictions on how those issues will turn out.
While Jennifer Farmer is a psychic medium who can provide both types of
readings individually, I am recommending her for an Intuitive Reading,
which integrates both the psychic reading and the mediumship reading into
one. This is an area of strength that really makes Jennifer stand out from
An Intuitive Reading is not focused on contacting deceased loved ones,
however, but rather on receiving ANSWERS and GUIDANCE from both SPIRIT and
ENERGY. An Intuitive Reading assists us in dealing with our personal and
professional concerns from all levels—physically, mentally, emotionally
JENNIFER’S CONFIDENCE LEADS HER TO SHARE HER GIFT PUBLICLY
I first became aware of Jennifer because she’s passionate about her
work. By that I mean she is out in the world sharing her gift with the
public. Jennifer can frequently be seen giving demonstrations at new age
fairs and body, mind & spirit expos around the country. She makes
personal appearances at private events, offers psychic and mediumship
development circles, and even provides group meditation sessions so that
people can meditate together and so she can teach people how to meditate
on their own. On Mother’s Day, for instance, Jennifer shared her gift
with a group of mothers who wanted to make their day extra special.
When a psychic medium is out giving readings to people in front of
audiences, it’s obvious that they have a certain amount of confidence in
their abilities. If you’re not good at giving readings, you tend to stay
out of the public eye and only give readings for one of those psychic or
medium hotlines—the kind where they don’t even use their real names,
but prefer nicknames of flowers or planets. Not Jennifer Farmer, she is
constantly in the public eye, helping as many people as she can and using
her real first and last name.
HOW I FIRST DISCOVERED JENNIFER FARMER
Jennifer listed herself on my newest online directory for psychics and psychic mediums,
BestPsychicDirectory.com, so she fell upon my radar screen when I
first created that resource in early 2007. As a result, I watched to see
what kind of feedback I’d get from the public about her, just as I do
with all the psychic mediums listed there. Since that directory allows the
public to write testimonials about their readings for each psychic medium,
it allows me to see which psychics and psychic mediums receive the most positive
reviews. Jennifer quickly received one of the highest number of positive
reviews on the entire directory, so I kept my eye on her.
Because of my directory, Jennifer and I had occasional contact. But, one
day, when I was struggling with a project and was very close to throwing
in the towel because of some silly excuse I was making, Jennifer
“coincidentally” called me even though I hadn’t heard from her in a
long time. It was a Sunday morning, so she left me a voice message.
Here’s what she said:
“Bob, this is Jennifer Farmer. I was meditating this morning and thought
of you as I was given a message. I don’t know who the message is for,
but I know I’m supposed to deliver it to you. The message is: Your
spirit needs you to do something, so stop making excuses and just do it. I
hope you understand it.”
Jennifer’s phone call couldn’t have been more timely. Her message got
me back on track and saved me from destroying something that was important
to me on a spiritual level. I was amazed at her accuracy and timing on the
matter, as I had just spent hours contemplating my concerns the night
Months later, I happened to have the opportunity to experience one of
Jennifer’s Intuitive Readings. Even better, my wife, Melissa, also got a
reading on the same day. This gave me the unique opportunity to listen to
two of Jennifer’s readings, both my own and Melissa’s.
Jennifer has a very organized method for conducting her readings. I
learned later that she tries to cover the following areas, depending on
how much time is available and what information comes through: spiritual,
emotional, physical, mental, professional relationships, personal
relationships and relationship to money.
MY PERSONAL READING WITH JENNIFER
From the first thirty seconds of my reading, Jennifer totally zeroed in on
the exact issues I had been dealing with in my life. I told her nothing.
She knew precisely what I had been struggling with personally and
professionally. She then gave me profound advice on how to deal with those
Since readings are only about an hour long, I appreciated that Jennifer
didn’t beat around the bush. It was like BAM, here’s what the problem
is… BAM, here’s what you need to do about it… and BAM, here’s what
spirit has to say about it to help you.
Most of the information Jennifer was
getting came from spirit. But if I had any questions, or if something that
spirit said didn’t make sense to me, Jennifer would use her psychic
ability for more insight or added clarity. It was very cool.
Here’s exactly how the reading
“Bob,” began Jennifer, “I’m being told by spirit that this reading
is about clearing your head. I see that you’ve been going through a dry
spell in terms of inspiration. Spirit tells me that your energy has been
low because of it. And they say that you need to find a way to pick up
your energy while in between discoveries that renew your passion.”
Jennifer was dead-on accurate. I had recently talked with Melissa about
this exact issue. Since founding OfSpirit.com Magazine in 2000, I had been
testing spiritual experiences with a wide array of practitioners and
writing about those that were the most amazing. Yet it had been a long
time since I’d felt the passion of a new spiritual experience and I
Jennifer continued, “You also have some big projects that you need to
get off your plate. You need to finish some things you are working on. In
order to move forward, you need to complete what you’re doing now. And
it’s important that you do this soon. Do you know what I’m talking
I did know what she was talking about. At the time of that reading,
although few people knew about these projects, I had a lot of work on my
lap. I was editing a documentary that I had filmed two years prior. I had
just filmed a new, although smaller, project that now needed to be edited.
I was ghostwriting a book for a client who was anxious to get it written.
And I have five websites that require a lot of my time. Jennifer Farmer
couldn’t have been more right. I needed to finish some of these projects
before I could add anything new to my workload.
Jennifer then offered some advice. “Spirit is telling me that there is a
natural ebb and flow in both inspiration and writing. They say that
because you are belligerent about constantly working so hard, they have
shut off any incoming experiences so that you can finish these projects
and make room for something new. Once you have created more space in your
life, the flow of inspiration will return. In the meantime, just keep
writing as if journaling. This will help you keep the energy flowing.”
Jennifer continued, “Bob, they keep telling me that you’ve been
belligerent about taking time off from work. Why do you push yourself to
work so hard? This is an old pattern that is coming back in. It’s been
passed down through generations of men in your family. But it’s
something that you need to change. Work smarter, not harder. And take more
time to get grounded. You’re so in your head.”
“Does Melissa garden?” Jennifer asked. “They’re showing me her in
Melissa was gardening at that exact moment I was getting the reading.
“They are advising you to work in the garden with Melissa. Feel the dirt
in your hands. Ground yourself with mindless activity. It’s a good way
to de-stress your mind.”
All of what Jennifer said made perfect sense for that time in my life.
There was no question that I had become so busy with work and taken on so
many projects that there was little time or energy left for new
inspirations. My workload was often a cause of immense stress. And it has
been proven to me time and again that once we free up the time and space
for new people, ideas and activities to flow in, they will enter. But so
long as we keep our minds, schedules and lives filled to the brim, it’s
like trying to add more sand to an already overflowing bucket—there’s
just no room for anything else.
By this point in the reading, I was already enthusiastic. Jennifer was
right on about everything so far. These were the exact issues with which I
was dealing on a daily basis. And these were private matters to me, so I
wasn’t writing about them or sharing them with other people. I can share
them with you now because they are in my past. However, at the time, I
wasn’t sharing them with anyone but Melissa. So Jennifer, who barely
knew me and did not know Melissa, could only be getting this information
from spirit. And it was impressive.
Then she really surprised me.
“Bob, what’s happening with the book?” she asked. Not that Jennifer
knew I currently had a literary agent or that I had received offers from
three publishers. She was simply getting the message that she needed to
address “the book.” And this is where my father (in spirit) stepped
Introducing my father into the reading, Jennifer correctly gave me the
month that my father had passed. She described a noteworthy conversation I
had with him on his deathbed, which was especially remarkable of her. She
described a few characteristics about his personality. And she accurately
mentioned a living relative to whom he was reaching out, someone Jennifer
Jennifer would have provided me with more evidence about my father if I
had asked, but that’s not what this type of reading is all about. An
“Intuitive Reading” is about personal and spiritual growth. It’s
about receiving direction and answers. So I only wanted to hear my
father’s messages of guidance in reference to the issues Jennifer had
addressed, not evidence of his continued existence.
Interestingly, I could easily tell from the words Jennifer conveyed that
it was my father who was delivering these messages through her. Our
deceased loved ones all have an identifiable vernacular and a handful of
words or phrases that they used frequently. Jennifer did this so
brilliantly that I had no question it was my father who was passing along
Here is what my father in spirit conveyed through Jennifer:
“Bob,” said Jennifer, “your father says that you tend to like being
alone. You’re a private person. But he’s insisting that you need to
understand that people like hearing what you have to say. They are
inspired by what you’ve learned. Don’t protect yourself so much. This
means you need to write more. You need to speak in public more. And you
need to get moving on some things. Your father is saying that you need to
take action and have your book finished by December.” And then Jennifer
began laughing at how demanding my father was being. Jennifer has a
wonderful sense of humor.
Once again, everything that Jennifer relayed from my father was correct. I
am very private. I do tend to retreat inward. And I haven’t written any
articles or spoken in public in a while. Like so many writers and
speakers, I tend to forget that anyone cares to read or hear what I have
to say, which is easy to do when you spend most of your waking hours
working in front of a computer.
My father is also correct in saying that I protect myself. If you’ve
ever written a book or article, and especially if you’ve ever given a
talk to hundreds of people, you know what a vulnerable position that is.
Yet this is why I craved the inspiration and passion that I’ve felt in
the past. When I’m feeling passionate about something, I’m overflowing
with so much enthusiasm that I can’t wait to tell people about it.
Passion and inspiration are the motivational elixir to my complacency and
Jennifer could never have known these things about me. My father did.
“Your father says he is supporting you from the other side,” said
Jennifer. “He’s telling you to keep your head up and keep marching
forward. He says that you are just like he was in life—he put his heart
first. And in order to serve the world with your investigations of
spirituality, you need to put your heart first and spread your message.
You have to take risks to get ahead in life.”
My father was all about taking risks. If there’s one thing he taught me,
it’s that it is okay to take risks, even if you fail, because it’s the
risks we don’t take that we regret, not the failures. And this is where
he got back to talking about my book.
“You need to get a
move on. You need to get your book done by December. And
you need to trust in your own judgment and choose a
publishing company,” said my father through Jennifer.
And this is when Jennifer, my father and I actually
talked about the various offers I had from publishers.
My father was strong in his advice on which publisher to
go with and why. He told me that I would get lost in the
pile of authors at one publishing company, that another
wasn’t aligned with my energy and to avoid them, and
that my book’s success would help build the success of
a third publishing company, if I chose that one. He
added that my energy and philosophies were in alignment
with the people at that third publishing company.
This was very thorough information, which is why I love
Jennifer’s Intuitive Readings. And it all resonated
with what I had been feeling on my own.
Now let me digress here a moment. Because I want to
teach you that I don’t take advice from psychic
mediums and I don’t take advice from deceased loved
ones in spirit. What I do is “take this advice into
account” as I make my own decisions, just as I would
take any person’s advice into account. But I do not
give extra weight to the psychic medium’s advice or to
the advice of spirits. I just accept it for what it
is—another opinion. Yet it is a valuable confirmation
to what my own intuition is telling me.
As mentioned, what was especially cool during this
reading was that the words Jennifer conveyed from my
father were the exact words and phrases that he commonly
used when he was alive here on earth. Keep your head up,
Bob. Don’t be afraid to take risks in life. You need
to get a move on. Trust in your own judgment. These were
all phrases that my father repeated often when he was
still here on earth. Jennifer not only had the messages
right; I knew she had the exact words that my father was
speaking to her.
Believe it or not, this was only a fraction of my
reading with Jennifer. She gave me so much more. As a
few examples, here are some other valuable things that
came through in my Intuitive Reading with her:
One uncle who
Jennifer identified by name (who had never come
through in my hundreds of readings) showed up and
gave me several messages, including many details
about his life and how he passed. He even called me
a “whipper snapper.” I hope that’s a good
came through and was identified by name. He, too,
had never come through in any other reading.
Jennifer described his physical appearance and
personality perfectly before giving me his messages
Jennifer knew I
was about to begin jogging again (which was true),
but spirit recommended that it wasn’t a good
exercise for my body. Great timing on that message,
as I was just about to start; and I have no doubt
that the advice is wise (I’ve tried jogging many
times over the past 20 years and always had to stop
due to physical injuries).
the message that I needed to learn how to be
comfortable with not knowing the outcome of things
to come. (Someone up there knows me too well.)
One loved one in
spirit recommended I learn how to be happy in a
lower gear, that I tend to be going, going, going
all the time. Likewise, I need to learn how to
relax. (True, true, true!)
on messages about a dog in spirit who was present at
the reading and who’s passing due to cancer took a
toll on me in my youth. I remember that dog and his
passing well. It was one of my early grief
experiences that prepared me for this work, I’m
And there were
some future predictions given, though I won’t
identify them here specifically, as I’m still not
a big fan of predictions (they are too often wrong
with any psychic or psychic medium). Nevertheless, Jennifer
passed along what she was getting.
Once again, I should
point out that the spirit communication in this reading
was not for the purpose of contacting deceased loved
ones; it was about the guidance and advice that those
spirits had to pass along. And Jennifer was in contact
with both deceased loved ones AND spirit guides (angels
or ascended masters who watch over and guide us). So she
was giving me advice from all levels.
This reading really
made me feel as if Jennifer Farmer was able to see right
into me. The advice that came through both psychically
and via spirit was so perfectly matched with what my own
intuition knew I should be doing that there was no
question in my mind that Jennifer’s messages were
precise and reliable. This is the key question: Does it
resonate with what your own intuition tells you?
DOUBLE-CONFIRMATION: EVALUATING MY WIFE’S READING, TOO
I was already giddy with excitement over my reading with
Jennifer, but then I listened to the recording of my
wife’s reading, which Jennifer gave Melissa just ten
minutes after my own. Because Jennifer knew virtually
nothing about Melissa, hearing Melissa’s reading
really validated what I was already feeling—that
Jennifer’s Intuitive Readings are extraordinary and
Jennifer knew things about Melissa, her past, her
personality, her relationship with me, and Melissa’s
relationship with herself that nobody else, including
friends and relatives, knew about her. She knew what
kind of work Melissa had been doing spiritually,
emotionally and physically to improve herself, and she
knew how long she’d been doing those things. She knew
her likes and dislikes. She knew her strengths and
weaknesses. And she had solid, practical advice for
Melissa that made sense regarding how to grow
spiritually, emotionally and physically.
While my reading was very focused on my work (most of my
readings are), Melissa’s reading was more about her
health and wellbeing. And the advice, once again, was in
line with everything Melissa felt using her own
intuition. In fact, Melissa told me that what she’d
learned from her reading was a valuable confirmation
that she was moving in the right direction with the way
she eats, exercises, makes choices, treats people and
lives her life. She felt very peaceful after her reading
As if my reading with Jennifer was not already
remarkable, listening to Melissa’s reading with
Jennifer confirmed my feelings about her gifted ability
to help people positively change their lives. If you are
struggling in a relationship, have questions about your
career, wish to improve your health, are having
difficulty finding your way in life for one reason or
another, an Intuitive Reading with Jennifer Farmer could
be the perfect tool for guidance.
If Jennifer Farmer can impress me this much after having
hundreds of readings in more than 11 years of researching
psychic mediums (since 1999), then I’m sure she’ll impress you,
too. Jennifer offers readings by phone to anyone around
the world or you can set up an in-person reading by
