Student Testimonials

headeSavHomeHis Clairaudience Saved His Life!

  Flight 811 Have you ever heard your name called when you were alone?  Have you ever awoken from a dream with some seemingly random names running through your mind, a set of numbers, or some kind of other message? This is your psychic faculty of clairaudience working with you to give you some piece of important information.   We get clairaudient psychic messages all the time. However, we just think it’s our own thoughts talking at us. Most don’t realize our spirit guides and guardian angels are constantly sending us messages to help guide us through life.   Generally speaking, individuals are not trained to pay attention to certain thought forms and tune out mind chatter. In fact, if we were to actively listen and consciously be aware of each and every thought, we might go a little bonkers. And it’s true not every thought that runs through our mind is an important message. On the average, we think thousands of thoughts each day. However, there are times when our ethereal guardian beings really need to get our attention…

Key Questions People Ask Me

I see famous people offering Mediumship and Psychic courses for very little cost. Because they are famous, are their courses better?

I have seen one or two of these courses. I even took one and enjoyed it. However, these courses are very very basic. They are a great introduction into a topic like, let’s say, Mediumship. The problem is the classes sell for quantity and are somewhat lacking. There is so much left out of the instruction process and many questions left unanswered. Also, there’s little chance for interaction and asking questions as one moves through the training. Carol is available to answers questions as students move through their courses. This is an invaluable resource! And, the student receives certification that is worth something.

Why are other distance learning programs so expensive? Is their training better?

From day one, my goal with Imagine Spirit was to offer quality classes and programs that are affordable to most. My goal was not to make tons of money, but to pass on to others what I’ve learned over thirty years time with the thousands of readings and sittings I have done. This is my passion and I now know that this is what I truly came into this lifetime to do. I am dedicated to sharing these experiences and expertise than less experienced practitioners can offer in their classes. IMAGINE SPIRITS WANTS OUR STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE AND SUCCEED!

Does everyone have the same abilities?

Thankfully no. Our own unique set of gifts and talents are for us to work with in a way that is comfortable for us. And, if you believe your abilities are not as good as someone else’s, for example TV show Mediums and Psychics, think again. These individuals have just been doing it longer–that’s all. You can be as accomplished as anyone else with the right training and the right teacher. Helping students learn what their current set of abilities are is one of the first things we do in either a Home Study Course or in other programs offered.

Are your training courses complicated or difficult to follow?

The answer is absolutely NO! Our classes, programs, and home study courses are easy to absorb and actually fun to learn with. We provide many learning tools and resources for the student to take advantage of. Our teachings are imparted in a practical down-to-earth approach combined with powerful esoteric knowledge and resources. In our home study courses, we include exercises and previous live class recordings to allow students to feel as though they are actually in a real live class. Many movies are available to view on YouTube and we also have an online FaceBook group that students can join and ask questions of others. Also, Carol is always available to personally answer questions! You are never alone in your studies!

Have you always wanted to be a Medium?

Actually no. As a youngster, I wanted to be an opera singer because I was blessed with an incredible voice. Mediumship called out to me. I didn’t try and pursue it in the beginning. When I first commenced my metaphysical studies, I started out wanting to be a professional psychic before Mediumship became a focus. Read my bio for more about…

Are you going to feature things about the Paranormal and Ghosts?

This answer is a resounding YES. I am working on transferring all my previous articles and paranormal audio clips to a new blog. One more reason to sign up for our newsletter to let you know when it’s available! There is going to be a lot of great stuff like the Ghost Quiz movie to the right!

How do you talk to Spirits? Have you ever seen one?

I am a Mental  Medium with a sprinkling of trance Mediumship. Therefore, I converse with spirits in my mind. I mentally ask questions and mentally receive answers or feelings and even see symbols which represent answers. This is usually only done when I am in session or training students. The answer to your second question is, Yes. On several occasions I have seen spirits but not all the time like some people do. I have seen them look kind of flat in a 2-dimensional way or in black and white and have seen full-bodied colorized spirits that looked incredibly real.

act as that link. Anyone can become a medium.”
