Psychic Medium, Ph.D.


Hi, I’m Carol Nicholson. I’ve been privileged to be a part of the psychic arts community for over thirty years. During this time, I performed countless Mediumship and Psychic readings and was fortunate to be in high demand. I also taught spiritual classes both locally and seminars nationwide.

In 2001, I created Imagine Spirit on the Internet for the sole purpose of globally providing the finest and most powerful Mediumship, Psychic, and Advanced Spiritual Courses available.

How Carol’s Psychic-Medium Career Began

I’ve had incredible psychic experiences my entire life. Perhaps you can relate.

These happenings included premonitions, seeing and sensing spirits, and the ability to detect energy fields around people.

I began intense Mediumship and Tarot training with my mentor, Dr. Alice Bowers, Trance Medium and Psychic. Within two years, I was certified as a Professional Psychic-Medium. As a result, it wasn’t long before I acquired an extensive list of private clients.

I Lived a Dual Life

I lived a dual life working in the corporate world as well as quietly doing readings in the evenings and on weekends. In those days, it wasn’t smart to let the corporate honchos know one was seriously into psychic things.

In 2001, I took a leap of faith and launched I advertised in-person classes and seminars and was pleased and a little surprised at the packed turn-outs. In addition to this, I began holding classes by phone. I don’t know how I did it, but I squeezed in time to obtain my Ph.D. in Parapsychology & Paranormal Sciences (see below).

Why I Do Ghost Hunting When I’m Already a Medium

People sometimes ask me why I do ghost hunting when I’m already a medium. Don’t I already communicate with the Spirit World?

For me, the answer is simple. As a medium, I communicate with spirits of loved ones who have passed or cross lost souls to the light.

On the other hand, doing paranormal investigations helps me to document earthbound spirits that either haven’t had the opportunity, or have refused to cross to the light. I attempt to cross these spirits over when I can.

Some spirits encountered are actually a residual memory or replay of events and don’t require moving across the veil. I like to document these as well. It’s important to me, to gather spirit evidence as proof of some kind of afterlife. It brings comfort to many knowing that an afterlife truly exists. This is one of the main reasons that Spiritualism was founded in the mid 19th century.
