Hello beautiful people, my name is Atlanta, also known as Psychic Medium Atlanta. I am going to tell you a little about me and how I became a medium at the age of 20.
In the summer of 2000, my parents welcomed me into the world and I became a sister to three older siblings. From the very early years, my parents knew that I would be different. At 8 weeks I went for my vaccinations, they were just the normal jabs that every baby has… but for me, they were life-changing. It triggered a form of epilepsy to be detected in me that turned out to be genetic. Within 48 hours I started having seizures, so many in fact that I stopped focusing and my parents thought that I was blind. I baffled doctors as my MRI scans were normal but my EEG was showing a severe form of epilepsy. My parents were told it was a rare condition that was usually seen in babies that have a poor outcome. ‘Hope for the best’ they said, but it would be a one in a million chance I would lead a normal life and that’s when I started medication.
48 hours after starting epileptic medication, my seizures slowed down. I was still ‘blind’ but there was a light at the end of the tunnel and my parents started looking into religion. They wanted to find answers and hope, believing that the church was somewhere they could find peace and support. However, all it did was make them more confused and that’s when my dad’s aunt paid them a visit. It was a bit of a family secret but she was a psychic medium, making big waves in the psychic community.
She asked my parents to sit in a dark room with just a candle for light and me. She sent over her ‘healing powers’ and asked the ‘angels’ to free me of epilepsy and for me to live a long and healthy life. My mum says it was a magical evening. I was then around six months old and from that moment on I started to focus. I would follow shadows, faces and even smile when someone made me laugh. My parents couldn’t thank her enough. It was like I was born again.
And from then on my family believed that I had a connection with the other side.
When I turned 15, my nan passed away. This is when I started hearing spirits for the first time. Nan started talking to me, telling me how much she missed us and what she would do for one last hug. I thought I was going crazy… as any ordinary child would. She then carried on talking about the memories that she shared with my mum. I could see her vaguely but I tried to block it out.
Thinking to myself that maybe it was because I missed her so much, that my mind was just playing tricks on me.
However, my nan didn’t stop and it seemed she wanted to pass messages on to my mum. So that’s what I did, relaying things word for word. Mum couldn’t explain it. Everything I was saying was true. Recalling past experiences I never knew of and talking about people from her childhood only she would know. That’s when I knew I could do something that was out of this world.
I started working for The Royal Oak Pub in 2018, where I became a barmaid for wakes (the funeral after gathering). There was one event that I remember quite clearly. It was 11:00 am and a tall dark man walked through the door and came to the bar. He introduced himself as ‘John’. He then took a seat in the restaurant with a fosters/beer in his hand. Without him moving his mouth, I could hear him saying ‘I wasn’t ready to go but I had to’ and he shrugged his shoulders.
The family arrived at 12:00 and an elderly lady walked through the door in floods of tears. Talking to her friend I overheard her say “It’s so upsetting, John was taken to soon”. I was stunned. I couldn’t believe what I heard. She began placing pictures around the room of her late husband and after taking one look at them I knew who he was. He was there, at the after gathering, with his family. Just as upset as they were. It was a strange experience. It was the first time I realised that I not only heard spirits, I saw them too.
From then on it became quite consuming. I didn’t get a moment of peace. It’s like once they knew I would see and hear them, they didn’t want to go. They wanted their messages to be passed on to those still living. Like a telephone connection only I could connect to. It was noisy, it was a little intrusive and I wanted some peace but I didn’t know how to make it stop. Saying that I didn’t want to make it stop completely, just to turn it on and then turn it off again when it suited me.
A year passed and my dad did some plumbing work for a psychic medium in the town where I live. A lovely man who had been connecting with ‘the other side’ for a long time and after talking to him about my abilities he asked if I would like to join a psychic circle.
A place where I could meet like-minded people and learn how to open myself up and shut myself down again. It’s all done through love and light, prayers are spoken, lots of thank yous are given and protection is placed around you. It was an amazing opportunity and I was so thankful for it.
After a year, I was asked if I would like to go up on platform. To stand in a spiritualist church and give messages to those looking for comfort. So I did, I attended one evening and did around eight readings that night in total, giving messages to many different people and everything I said was confirmed as true. It was the beginning of my journey. It showed people how genuine I was. I was there to pass messages on to those still living and to reassure people that dead family and friends are not gone. They can see us, hear us and live like us… just in another room. They don’t become all angelic or happy. They are at peace but they are just the same personalities that they are when they are living. Say the same things, the same jokes, have the same concerns and they show their disapproval with their looks.
In my opinion, they cannot tell us what’s going to happen in the future. They sometimes hold babies and say nothing. I have to interpret that as a baby that was lost or one that is coming to bless a family in the future. I give what I see, I say what I hear and I pass on whatever the loved one is asking of me. However, I will never tell someone that they should choose between right and wrong or make decisions on what I’ve been told by spirit. Some things I keep to myself. I have to see every person that asks for my help as someone who needs comfort.
You will see your loved ones again one day but until then I will continue my journey on reassuring people they will never be alone.
I have now started a career on giving one-on-one readings and in the new year, I hope to be back on platform again. I will always come across controversy with what I do but I don’t charge money for speaking to spirit, I just charge a small fee for my time. It’s a job that has been chosen for me. I’m as confused and shocked as the next person that this is what I do but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Sending Love and Light to you all,
