I’VE long been interested in the spiritual world.

Many mock it. Many others question it. And some of course detest it.

But since being in my teens, strange things (that can’t be explained) have happened to me. And so, an open-minded interest in all things spiritual, has developed in me over the years.

Recently, weird and wonderful things have started to happen to me much more frequently and it’s led me to believe that there really could be something in all of this.

Just my opinion of course.

But I’ve experienced far too many strange things, which have convinced me. Particularly in my own home. (As has little Elsie too.)

Because of this, I’ve seen a couple of mediums in the past, one lady in particular who was so accurate with some of the things she told me, that it actually made me cry.

And then, a few weeks ago, I received an email asking if I’d like to do a reading with Emma Kinsey, one of the UK’s leading psychic mediums.

The email arrived in my inbox at a time in my life when I was questioning all kinds of things, so I was very keen to give it a go.

At just 31, Emma Kinsey has already established herself as a trusted and respected psychic medium, appearing in the media often and citing many celebrities as her fans, so I was pretty excited to hear what she may have to say.

Our conversation was held via Skype and in absolute honesty, I really couldn’t see how this might work out.

All readings I’ve had in the past were carried out face to face, not over a webcam, so although I wasn’t entirely skeptical, I was a little bemused, shall we say.

When the day came for our chat, I was running a bit late, from an earlier meeting so getting set up was all a bit rushed and manic.

I didn’t feel ‘prepared’ and as I was late, I lost a bit of our chat time too – our thirty minutes became twenty minutes.

“There’s just no way I’m going to get much from this,” I thought.

But. I was wrong.


Once pleasantries were out of the way, Emma began and the first two words she said, took my breath away. So much so, I had to compose myself as the words related to someone who means a great deal to me.

And on the reading continued, in this similar kind of vein.

I’m not going to get too much into the nitty gritty of our conversation as of course, so much of what was said was so personal.

But what I can tell you is that both of my Grandads ‘stepped forward’ to communicate with me, through Emma.

My Dad’s father was the first to ‘come through’ providing Emma with all kinds of information about our family and me. Stuff that Emma could not have known, including how he passed away.

She told me that my Grandad was a strong and ever present protective influence around me (words that were funnily enough mentioned to me by another medium less than a year ago) and she also asked if I had ever been told, that I could ‘sense spirits’.

I haven’t.

But. (And here’s the thing).

I’ve always suspected that I can.

Only a few people know this about me, but as I say, strange things happen to me all the time and being able to sense a different energy (for want of a better phrase) happens to me on a regular basis.

I told Emma this and she reassured me, saying that I was right, that I absolutely could ‘sense spirits’ but that I must not be frightened, as most of the time, the spirit I’m sensing is my Grandad who is always with me.

A lovely thought, whether you believe in it or not.

Lots more was said.

Some of it, I couldn’t figure out, until after. Some of it, doesn’t yet make sense. Some of it was stuff that is actually happening to me right now – such as my book deal and conversations around a potential TV show.

And of course, I’d be silly to ignore that Emma could have read about these things here on my blog or elsewhere. She could have. And who knows? Perhaps she did.

But the rest of it? The personal stuff, the stuff about me and my relationships? Well she could never have known about these kind of things and I have to say…

Emma was spot. On.

I share so much of my life and soul on here, but some of the stuff she told me, I have only ever shared with a few people. So make of that what you will.

After a while, my other Grandad came through which I was delighted about, as he passed away many years ago when I was a baby.

I’ve always been told that I’m a lot like him in terms of intelligence and his ‘love for books!’, so when she told me, that he wanted me to know that he “was proud of me“, I’m not at all embarrassed to say I shed a little tear.

Again, more was said, that no one could have known. Information about my Mum, about me and about my marriage.

And then before I knew it, time was up, with one departing message, that again took the wind out of my sails, a little.

All in all, my chat with Emma really was mind blowing.

Yes, I appreciate that some stuff, she could have researched about me. Yes, I have an open mind about it all and cannot of course, say that it was true. Yes, I get that many people will think it’s all a load of make believe.

But I tell you… if I do give birth to a son, in the next couple of years and he turns out to be a talented sportsperson (a message both Grandads gave me!), well, the lovely Emma Kinsey will have me absolutely convinced.

Time will tell, ey?



If you’d like to have a reading with Emma, you can book a session with her here. Alternatively follow her on Twitter.

What do you think? Am I bonkers? Has anything weird but kinda wonderful happened to you? Does it spook you? Would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this.


With love,

  • What an interesting and moving experience! I like to think that my grandparents are watching over me and my children. I wish they could have met my husband. There has been a couple moments in my life when I am sure they were protecting me and maybe once my daughter. I do think I would like to speak to a medium someday. So glad you had a positive experience. Exciting to see if your “talented son” comes along. Do you think that information will influence your future pregnancy? And how you raise your son?

    • I honestly don’t know Christina! I guess if I did get pregnant again and had a boy, then yes quite possibly! How could it not?! It was a very positive experience for me. I can definitely recommend Emma if you’re ever interested. She was incredible. x

  • Oh crumbs I have goosebumps reading this. I would love to have a reading but I’m actually quite fearful about what might be said.

    I too feel I can sense/have seen things that are not if this world and part of me doesn’t want to know if it’s true. Most of all I’d like to know if my dad’s at peace, perhaps I’ll try and work up the nerve. This really is fascinating X

  • How fascinating! I’ve never been with a medium but my grandparents have done it a few times and they have always had plenty of very accurate and strange stories to tell. Maybe I should give it a go too sometime :)

    • I can definitely recommend it! I think the key – if there is one – is to be open to it and not have expectations. (That’s usually when people come away disappointed) x

    • I knew you would be lovely Tanita. And yes, who knows?! I’m a bit skeptical about that bit, but we’ll see! x

  • It’s not something that I’m entirely sure about at the moment but I would love to have the opportunity anyway and perhaps I could be properly convinced!

    Many of my friends have had readings and seen mediums and most of them have come away completely astounded and quite emotional – even the skeptics – so perhaps there is more to it than I think?

    I’d like to believe that it’s true and I definitely think there’s a lot that we don’t know yet about that side of things (i.e the spiritual world).

    So lovely that you were able to connect with your Grandads and it must have been such a wonderful experience, I’d love to give it a go someday!

    Eeeek I hope you get a boy someday, that’s fabulous!!!


    • Thanks Lucy! Who knows ey?! Time will definitely tell on this one. I’ve had three readings and all of them have given me much comfort, hope and food for thought. But as you say, you definitely need to be in the right kind of place, to have one. X

  • Oh I love things like this, I use to always visit fortune tellers and tarot card readers and things as I was always interested in the spirtual world. I keep meaning to see someone like this but I would never know how to find someone as I am always weary in case I pick a dud reader xx

    • It was fantastic Lindsay! I think you’d love it and as I think the post shows, would def recommend Emma. x

  • How interesting! I’ve never had a reading but am fascinated by the whole thing. I’m not sure if I’m a total believer but I do think there’s something to it. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for that little sportsman of yours ; ) xx

  • If this comes through twice in sorry … Blinking phone.

    Loved this post , something which greatly interests me. We went to sn evening a few weeks ago. My mums friend came through , we were all in tears. She used to take her false front tooth out and the medium told us she had her tooth in her hand and was playing with it. Not stuff you could make up.

    I’ve been told that I am haunted ( app you can be) and have the gift , something I’d love to persue.

    The same week we went on a ghost walk around Sheffield which was interesting but freezing and In a few weeks time my friend and I are getting regressed !! I can’t wait this will be so interesting. I dread to think what I was in a previous life !

    Great read , Tracey x

    • Thanks Tracey! So glad you found it interesting. There’s so much of the world / universe / us that we don’t know about. I’m very open minded to these things and as you say, when things happen to you in life that can’t be explained, you start to think there may actually be something in all of this. The regression things sounds fantastic!!! Best of luck with that. I wouldn’t mind having a go at that myself one day! x

  • Even if you don’t believe or believe in spirits, once you talk to a psychic you will run out of words. You would not believe how they get those information. And its always awesome for me to know what my family or relatives would say from the other side as an advise for me or even my future! Please accept my advance congratulation for your baby boy!
