While I’ve had my own encounters with deceased loved ones, I hadn’t considered consulting a medium to receive messages. But, for the upcoming Day of the Dead, I thought it might be fun to see what would “come through.”
I didn’t know what to expect when Cheryl Murphy — a psychic and medium who recently moved from Colorado to California but still offers classes on developing intuition in Carbondale every summer — started my reading last Thursday. I didn’t say a word or ask any questions, other than the usual general greeting and request to record the Zoom session.
Immediately, she began talking about a man around my age, “a colleague … who you spent time with the outside of work; you knew him really well … he was funny,” liked to drink and “had music around him,” was a good storyteller, lived far from his family, and had been at the same company for a long time. This man also mentioned I used to wear a lot of sparkly jewelry, “but not so much anymore” (which is phrasing he’d use). Without any validation or information from me, she also accurately told me how he died.
