In recent years, there has been a significant shift in the perception and acceptance of psychic mediums. Once dismissed as mere charlatans or crazy fortune-tellers, these gifted individuals are now being recognized for their remarkable ability to help people navigate their mental health struggles. These modern-day intuitives offer hope and solace to those seeking guidance and understanding. This is part one of a two-part series.

For those new to therapy and seeking guidance, it can be disappointing to learn that conventional therapists are not supposed to make decisions for their clients. Therapists are trained to refrain from dictating what their clients should do since it is considered unethical. Instead, they ask questions in a manner that empowers clients to make their own decisions and choose the path that best suits them.

A rising number of people are now seeking a complete healthcare approach that caters to all their needs, not just the obvious ones. As a result, more and more individuals are blending conventional and alternative treatments. This has led to a growing trend of combining traditional therapies with psychic mediumship, intuitive life coaching, and spiritual guidance.

The benefits of integrating conventional and intuitive guidance

What if your therapist could go beyond the surface level and delve deeper into your psyche and energy? They could uncover underlying issues causing repetitive behaviors or situations that could be resolved with a fresh perspective. The possibilities are intriguing.

Incorporating intuitives into mental health therapies is a new and promising approach to emotional wellbeing. “Psychic” refers to the human soul, mind, or spirit, which naturally aligns with studying and exploring the human soul. On the other hand, psychology relates only to the state of the mind and behaviors. Combining the two thoughts creates a holistic effect on wellbeing, and where society seems to be moving in the 21st century of care.

According to a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, individuals who received a combination of conventional therapy and alternative healing practices reported a significant reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms compared to those who solely received traditional therapy. The study suggests that integrating alternative healing practices, such as meditation, acupuncture, and yoga, with conventional therapy can effectively improve mental health outcomes and cater to the diverse needs of individuals seeking treatment.

Mesina Sanders-Gittins of Psychic Whispers

Meet an intuitive

One remarkable individual offering this unique approach is Mesina Sanders-Gittins of Psychic Whispers, a psychic intuitive making waves in the field by providing comfort and healing to her clients. Her compassionate and empathetic approach has helped countless individuals find peace and closure despite overwhelming loss or grief.

Through her innate ability to connect with the other side, Mesina has shown us that there is something more significant to communicate with, even in our darkest moments.

“I think that it is essential to leave people feeling empowered. It’s not about laying out their future if you will, but empowering their decision-making process so that they will leave the session feeling like they can make a decision confidently. That is gold for most people’s lives, raising their standards for their wellbeing. All they need is validation and confidence that their perspective is not off track, or a new one to help them along the way.”

Mesina understands that it is not all rosy, however. She can bring in a perspective that the client may not have considered before, and she can help guide them in understanding through a new lens. “I will tell the client how I feel it could be and make predictions if you will. But this is also about empowering people to take the road ahead of them and say, ‘Do you like this picture [of the road ahead]? How could you relate to that? What do we think we can learn from this?’ to help people evolve so that their choices are so much more competent.”

Opening the veil, one reading at a time

One of the most profound ways in which the modern-day psychic medium is changing mental health is by assisting individuals in coping with the loss of a loved one. The death of a family member, friend, or even a pet can be an earth-shattering experience, leaving us feeling lost and disconnected from the world.

Traditional therapy may offer some relief, but it often fails to provide the spiritual connection and closure that individuals desperately seek. Enter the psychic medium, who can bridge the gap between the physical and spiritual realms, easing the pain of grief and offering solace to those left behind.

Mesina’s ability to communicate with the deceased has brought tremendous comfort to her clients, enabling them to gain a sense of closure and peace.

Imagine having one last conversation with a departed loved one, saying the words left unsaid, or seeking forgiveness. The healing power of these interactions cannot be overstated, as they allow individuals to let go of their grief and move forward with their lives.

“It’s really nice for somebody neutral to be able to not only intuitively tell them this is what’s happening. However, this is also spiritual, so there may be other things they have never considered when connecting with the other side. It’s great for someone to come in to chat and sit down with somebody who, for all intents and purposes, dare I say, knows what’s going on. You don’t have to tell me the whole story.”

“So many of my clients say to me, ‘Oh my gosh, I knew that! I was feeling that too!’ and ‘You’re right, that’s exactly what I was thinking.’”

Mesina explains that her clients feel so good to be validated on that level -something that no friend, family, or loved one can do at that level because everybody else has a filter or agenda. Their advice comes from that filtered perspective. It’s so validating and leaves people confident in their decision-making process.”

Developing your inner wisdom

The modern-day intuitive is not limited to helping those with loss or grief. Mesina also assists individuals in developing their intuitive abilities, empowering them to rely on their inner wisdom and guidance.

Discovering and honing our intuitive skills can be life-changing in a society that often encourages us to ignore our intuition in favor of logic and reason. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities and offers a unique perspective on our lives and the world around us.

Through her video mini-workshops on her Patreon channel and one-on-one sessions, Mesina has helped countless individuals tap into their intuition and connect with their higher selves. She guides them in exploring their innate psychic abilities, showing them that they, too, have the power to access this extraordinary realm of knowledge and insight.

By doing so, Mesina is transforming their mental outlook and empowering them to navigate life’s challenges confidently and clearly. She also feels there is growing responsibility as an intuitive.

Mesina says, “For intuitives, we recognize the level of responsibility we have in what we do is vast. My big goal in my career is to see the standards raised. I would love to see people coming into the humanity side and recognizing that the gifts that we have here can be used for such powerful transformative energy. We must take it seriously. I would love to see those standards and ethics raised.”

Mind, Body and Spirit

The rise of modern-day intuitives signifies a fundamental shift in how we view mental health and wellbeing. It acknowledges that true healing involves nurturing not only the mind but also the spirit. By embracing the power of spirituality and connection, we are opening ourselves up to a realm of healing and growth that was once considered taboo.1

The influence of psychic mediums like Mesina on mental health is expected to expand as an increasing number of individuals seek guidance and support.2 This trend suggests a hopeful future whereby more individuals will find solace and enlightenment through these spiritual practices.

Their unique ability to bridge the gap between the physical and spiritual worlds revolutionizes how we approach therapy and self-discovery. In a world that can often feel disconnected and overwhelming, the modern-day intuitives offer hope and reassurance that we are not alone.

So, if you find yourself searching for answers, longing for closure, or seeking a deeper connection to yourself and the world around you, consider the guidance of a modern-day psychic medium.

The peace and healing they can bring to your life are limitless, providing you with the hope and understanding to navigate the ups and downs of this journey we call life. Embrace the possibilities, and allow yourself to experience the transformative power of the modern-day intuitive.
