Kristy Robinett: Messenger Between Worlds

Today I want to share some thoughts I had after listening to an episode of Jim Harold’s The Other Side podcast. Jim interviewed Kristy Robinett, a psychic medium. Now days everyone seems to be a medium or a psychic, and Jim has interviewed plenty of them, so as I started the podcast while driving to work yesterday morning I probably rolled my eyes. But as the interview went on, I realized how easy this woman was to listen to, and it almost seemed like she was in the car with me. She seemed so very honest and real, and she got emotional as she talked about some of her experiences with clients. It really was a great interview!

Kristy told Jim some personal stories from her childhood, a time that was apparently very challenging for her. She says she has been seeing and communicating with spirits since the age of three. She didn’t have a lot of support and it seems the adults in her life often just didn’t understand and didn’t know what to do with her. I can’t imagine how lonely it must have been growing up with people not believing you, not understanding you, or even thinking your gift was evil. Below is a portion of her bio from her website, kristyrobinett.com.  

I grew up in a religious household and attended parochial school from K-12. Seeing spirits from the tender age of 3 I had difficulty understanding what I was being taught at school and church compared to what I was seeing, feeling and hearing. For several years I fought with the rationale, my sanity and my religion. It wasnt until I was in my 20s that I decided to consult my minister.

​As I sat down across from the man, his eyes looked into mine with wonder. I was the good girl of the school and the church; a straight A student, active in youth groups, the choir, the band, drama, varsity sports – an All American Girl – so the reason why I was sitting across from him wringing my hands profusely confused him. Not necessarily knowing how to begin, I merely blurted out I see ghosts. I see angels. I see spirits. And they talk to me! My minister looked at me without expression and asked me to explain more in depth to the degree of communication. At that moment his son came through. A son I never knew he even had. A son nobody in the parish knew he had and who he had lost. Tears shone in his eyes and he hugged me, giving me his blessing to pursue the work he believed I was given by God. It sounds oh so simple, but a theology debate with me playing the devils advocate took place over a matter of a few hours. I continued to consult with him and he would counsel me and I would often counsel him. He told me that it wouldnt be easy, me being who I was, but that if it were easy everybody would do it. He also cautioned me on the types of people who would try to ridicule me, play theology Jeopardy with me and mock me.

Becoming comfortable with my gift has taken an awful long time and still when I speak with someone who doesn’t know “what” I am, I begin – “Now, I am perfectly sane, but….I see ghosts….” I am not different than you. Everybody has the ability to “see”, you just have to open yourself to it.

I think some of us probably have this idea that many psychics or mediums somehow chose this path, and maybe even for the purpose of gaining attention or fame. It made me stop to realize that for some of these people, they had no choice. It’s who they are.

 

I have pre-ordered Kristy’s latest book, Messenger Between Worlds: True Stories from a Psychic Medium, that is due out in July of this year. I can’t wait to read it.

 

 


Séance 101

I just finished Séance 101 by Elaine M. Kuzmeskus. This was one of the books I purchased for summer reading and to research some possible upcoming séance experiences. 

I have to first be honest and tell you that it isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. It seems to be more of a history of physical mediumship, with an occasional emphasis on the séance. Some of the bigger topics Elaine hits on are table tipping, psychic photography, opening the third eye, trance mediumship, medical clairvoyance, psychic surgery (which I found fascinating and hadn’t really heard of), trumpet séances, precipitated painting, and materialization. She does this while discussing many important mediums along the way.  

Also, I have to very respectfully and honestly tell you that the editing in this book is absolutely horrible. There are so many terms misspelled, or spelled multiple ways within a single chapter even. An example of this would be “chakra” being spelled “charka”, “chaka”, and in the index it’s even spelled “chakas”. It reminded me of the day my mother innocently referred to them as “chokers”. 🙂 But also, there are several sentence fragments, missing periods, incorrect book titles… things like that. It distracted me a lot. It is an out of print book, and my copy is in good shape but is actually a discarded copy from the St. Louis Public Library. Did they not like it? 

If you can get past all of the editing flaws and are interested in learning about the history of physical mediumship, you may want to check out this book. Actually, the book was written in 2007. Just last month, Elaine came out with a brand new book (which is also on my “to be read” shelf) titled The Art of Mediumship: Psychic Investigation, Clairvoyance, and Channeling.  I’m sure I’ll share more on that when I get to it. 

So there you have it. It’s not the most comfortable read in the world, but I’m sure I’ll refer to it in the future.

From the inside cover of her most recent book.

Elaine Kuzmeskus, M.S. is a nationally recognized Spiritualist medium, who has been a presenter at Lily Dale Assembly in New York and the Learning Annex in New York City. During her thirty-five years as a medium, she has conducted many well-publicized séances, including the 1997 Official Houdini Séance and a séance for the play “Blythe Spirit”, at New Haven’s Long Wharf’s Theater. Recently, Elaine was featured on Better Connecticut and the PBS special, “Things That Go Bump in the Night”. 

She is also the director of the New England School of Metaphysics, Suffield, Connecticut, and the author of several books on mediumship including “Connecticut Ghosts” and a book on physical mediumship, “Séance 101”.
