Psychic Medium Weekend
Saturday, April 27th / Sunday April 28th

Throughout childhood JMarie was always searching for a connection with her own mother who was on Spirit side. Though her gifts were there, it wasn’t until many years later when her awakening would begin after some unexpected life changes.

She herself felt compelled to seek out a medium, allowing her to hear those messages she had always longed for from her mother, that would forever change her life. This leading her to find her renewed faith, spirituality and development of her own Spiritual gifts.

Through her development for the past few years, she has found that she not only connects with your loved ones, but works with guides, angels and past lives as well. She finds that the Divine aids her throughout her readings, bringing in and connecting with the Link of Love.

To give you an overview of JMarie, she is an Evidential Spiritual Psychic Medium, Reiki Practitioner, and an Ordained Minister. As she connects with the link of love, using evidence for validation, she finds that the evidence can be anything from birthdays, personalities, memories, names, remote viewing and more. All depending on the connection and link I have with your particular loved one(s) from the Spirit side of life.

In every sitting/reading, the process is the same, yet different. There are several ways a person in Spirit can communicate, and it’s all about how your loved one(s) feel it’s easier to connect with me. Whether that is seeing, hearing, feeling, etc.

The process of Mediumship / Psychism is like a puzzle, one that is filled with smiles, tears, love, memories, and more as we place the pieces together throughout your sitting/reading. She offers a unique style of card reading to accompany psychism, connecting with your loved ones, guides, and more. She enjoys using Reiki Energy if Spirit directs us to do so, to help in balancing your energy, centering, clearing of chakras, aura, and aiding in the healing of ailments and uses the energy when viewing and/or clearing past lives and more.

She finds that in her readings, it’s a moment to recreate a memory, a moment…… Bringing your loved ones to sit with you once again.

JMarie will be coming to Belle Grove Plantation for two days of Private Readings, a Tea Party with JMarie with a Group Reading Session. Due to popular demand, we have set all private readings at 30 minutes and will only have one person in the session at a time. The Group Session will be one hour.
