Believe it or not, everyone is a psychic.
Spiritual healer and psychic Cheryl Murphy helps people refine their own intuitive gifts through psychic coaching. She also uses her psychic and spiritual mediumship abilities to give guidance to clients about many life situations, including grief and issues relating to love and relationships, career changes, relocations, health concerns and animals who are lost or experiencing health or behavioral concerns. Ten years ago, after maintaining a traditional career and offering readings on the side, Cheryl’s spirit guides asked her to step into this work full time. She says our friends in the spirit world arrange for us to be where we are supposed to be. The Mind Body Spirit Network interviewed Cheryl about her psychic and spiritual gifts, as well as several ways everyone can tap into their own psychic abilities for increased guidance through life.

Q: Cheryl, can you please explain what your intuitive gifts as a psychic medium and spiritual healer entail, and how they are different?
A: Yes, I’m a spiritual medium—a lot of people call it a psychic medium. When I work with people on a psychic level, I’m tuning into their auric field, which is their energy field about three feet around them. I tune in to answer questions about what’s happening in current life situations. With mediumship, I’m tuning into the other world. I’m opening up to receive messages from loved ones, spirit guides or angels who are supporting us from another dimension or vibration. Not all psychics are mediums, but all mediums are psychics. Psychics perceive information; mediums receive information.
Q: When did you first know that you had psychic and mediumship abilities?
A: I was about 3 years old and spirit came into my room one evening. I remember having this wonderful, fun communication. It was a joyful experience; I was never scared.
Q: What is your process when you’re reading for a client? How do you receive your information?
A: I receive it clairvoyantly through inner sight, clairaudiently through hearing—either in my head or outside, as if someone is talking. I can feel it, and that’s called clairsentience. I also do claircognizance, which is a knowing of spirit, where they send me their thoughts or feelings. I perceive all those different ways. Sometimes if an Italian grandmother loved to cook, I might even taste spaghetti sauce, and that’s clairgustance. I think it depends on the people in the spirit world and how they can best connect. If someone was a loud talker in their life, I might hear them. Or if someone was a very heartwarming person, I might feel them first.
Q: Do you set an intention for your spiritual readings?
A: Yes. We can take in a lot of information, but we want to get to the good stuff, to what matters right now, and that’s what we’re filtering to come through that divine channel. In setting an intention, I send my love out to the universe, I always ask to attract the highest good, and for the next step in the healing for the person I’m working with.
Q: What can people do to raise their vibration to get the most out of spiritual guidance and healing?
A: Living a healthy lifestyle, eating right, sleeping right, reading inspirational books, hanging out with people who lift us up. Raising our vibration keeps us away from anything negative. Another great way is to practice grounding. Years ago, people wanted to do astral traveling, but in this current time, we want to be grounded in our body. This is the way we can receive the best information. A lot of people are frequently in their head. They think all day; they can’t sleep at night because their brain is going 100 miles an hour. We need to learn how to slow that down, to bring our energy down back into our core and our feet. Where attention goes, energy flows. We want to be connected to Mother Earth because she is so powerful in her healing. You can always tell you’re grounded because you feel empowered, positive, sure of yourself and you don’t let anything affect you. You always want to be in your own power.
Q: Did you pursue any training to help you hone your skills as a psychic, evidential medium and healer?
A: When I first started, there wasn’t much around where I lived, so I started going to metaphysical schools and working with really good teachers. James Van Praagh, Tony Stockwell, John Holland. You want to be around people who do this all the time who don’t think you’re strange if you want to start tapping into that world. Nowadays it’s very mainstream. People don’t realize how intuitive they are, and one of my goals is to help empower people to realize their intuition is working for them. We always want to follow that first voice we get for help making a decision. Such as, “can I write this book?” “Absolutely, go for it.” If you wait a second the second voice steps in and says, “you can’t do it.” That’s the ego. Always listen to the first voice; that’s our intuition.

Q: Is there anything people who are interested in developing their intuition can do to develop that first voice?
A: I always recommend meditation. If you need help learning how to meditate, start with a guided meditation. One breath in and out can be an entire meditation—just being in that present moment. Meditating five or 10 minutes a day would change your life.
Q: Can you share any feedback you’ve heard from your clients after their readings?
A: Yes, there’s a woman who is a client of mine. One time, I told her that her car was going to break. She laughed because her car is only a few years old and even her husband said the same thing. Sure enough, two weeks ago she was driving her car and the engine light came on. She pulled over to the side of the road and as she was pulling over, a second red light came on. She stopped the car and called the tow company. Within five minutes, her computer panel was lit with red warning signs. The dealership said the whole braking system had failed. Had she been driving, we don’t know what would have happened. My guides were connecting with her guides and we all helped her be safe. I think that’s what spirit does; it helps protect us. When we give our spirit guides and angels permission to help us, they will let us know if there are any warnings coming or anything to support us.
The word “psychic” can have a negative connotation. Is there anything people can do to ensure they are receiving legitimate spiritual and medium readings?
A: Yes, psychic kind of has a taboo, and that’s why a lot of people call themselves intuitives, but we’re all intuitive. To go to a legitimate psychic or medium, go to someone that a friend referred you to. Visit their website and if there are testimonials or references you can read, I’d certainly key into that. Before the reading begins, ask them how long they’ve been practicing and how much they charge. Sometimes if they charge an astronomical amount or too little, that can be a red flag. I always tell people to wait a little while, listen to your intuition, see if you feel it in your gut and let that pull you to the right person. I want to work with people who are drawn to me; that’s tuning into my vibration, and a lot of times it’s a match.
A: I want to keep sharing that while I am connecting with spirit, you are also able to connect with that positive, loving guidance. If you’re hearing anything negative, you’re not connecting. The first voice we hear in our head is the supportive, guiding, compassionate voice, so always tune into that. Spirit always has your back. You’re absolutely where you’re supposed to be in this life right now and if you’re looking to change your life, you can do it by learning how to be more intuitive. Ask your guides and angels for more intuition and higher guidance, because when we give the spirit world permission, that’s when they step forward.
