Hello again, my friends! Where has the summer gone? Since my last bit of musing here, I’ve been quite busy. I visited Lily Dale three times and was a featured medium on Canadian Weekend, served spirit at several Toronto churches, taught workshops on intuition and psychic development in Toronto and in New York, was named the Canadian correspondent for Psychic News (a Spiritualist newspaper published in England), argued election politics – both Canadian (Harper vs. Dion) and American (Hillary vs. the world) – seen two children off to college and university, and valiantly tended rose bushes that, at times, seemed more temperamental than a bunch of unhappy cats.
Whew! Sometimes, it’s not easy being human!

The Ectoplasmic Hand
After my last psychic development class, one of my students joked that, after working as a medium in Canada for 28 years, there was surely nothing under the sun that truly amazed me.
“Not true,” I told her. In the first place, life itself is a miracle and when you’re into the flow of the joy of living, you notice amazing things all the time. I mean, finding out that Sears was having a 33 percent off sale on refrigerators the very day my refrigerator died – while it doesn’t compare to, say, the miraculous parting of the Red Seas – is worth celebrating!
But in terms of sheer wonder, one of the most astounding things I’ve ever witnessed was in a séance led by English physical medium Stewart Alexander. Not only was I able to see a hand made of ectoplasm grow from Stewart’s chest – but it touched me.

The "Wow" Factor
Every medium likes to give evidence that’s so sharp, crisp and bang-on, someone’s jaw drops in surprise and awe. “How did you know that?” is something I love to hear from a client, because it means that spirit is strong with me. It also means I’m building trust with my client, so any message that comes through from spirit will be well received (and, hopefully, appreciated).
Medium Sharon Klingler, of Avon, Ohio, calls this “The ‘wow’ factor.” Think of John Edward’s TV show Crossing Over, where it seemed like he constantly brought forth amazing evidence: deceased relatives’ names, the automobiles they drove, and even hobbies they enjoyed while on the Earth plane! (I’ve seen John live and, believe me, there’s even more ‘wow’ when you’re nearby him.)
Whenever I get a “wow”, my spine tingles – even if that confirmation comes days later. Here are a few “wow’s I received via email a few days after a recent public mediumship event near Toronto.

Meeting Your Guides and Knowing Yourself
Good day, friends. Thank you for stopping by, and welcome to my blog. For those of you who have never met me, I’m Carolyn Molnar, a psychic medium and teacher with more than 28 years of experience of using intuition to help others. For my first entry, I’d like to touch on a question that so many of my clients and students ask me: How do I meet my guides?
People ask this question, I sometimes feel, because they are either frustrated that they haven’t felt the presence of their guides, or they are curious and want to know who is helping them.
