Miss Seven Jade
Physical Medium

Miss Seven Jade  

 ’’I am a 4th Generation Physical Medium in my family. The ability to see and hear things that others can’t see or hear.


Many people confuse or combine physical medium with psychic medium. We rarely hear the term physical medium. I’m not psychic nor would I hope to be.


You’ve most likely seen a physical medium as we are wonderful conduits for the dead to use us during seances and that’s how movies portray us. Or in front of a crystal ball. Or if you remember Patrick Swayze in Ghost, Whoopi Goldberg played a physical medium in the movie.


We see, hear, even feel the pain the spirit felt at death. At a recent investigation I had a very intense, sharp pain below my belly button, I could taste the blood as if I were coughing it up myself. It was later confirmed that the dead I was feeling had been shot where I felt the pain.


The way I interact with the dead is think of it like a radio frequency, when we are in a room with them we automatically find ourselves on the same frequency, we are synced.


When I give readings to clients, I’m able to connect with them and with their permission I see their past and present while also seeing the dead who may be around them.’’
