Meet Suzan Saxman, the reluctant psychic

One of the best ways to learn about how to harness your own psychic abilities is to read the accounts of others who have nurtured the gift. Suzan Saxman is a psychic medium who has seen spirits since she was a child. When she was young, she feared her abilities. Like many people who begin to experience psychic phenomena, she often saw or sensed things that she didn’t want to know, such as imminent disasters.

She recently told the New York Post about some of her psychic predictions that came true.

In one case, she saw a young man in a serious car accident and told him that he should never drive. Shortly after that, the young man’s mother called Saxman to tell her that her son had died in a car accident. While he wasn’t driving, he was in the passenger seat.

She also describes a situation where a client approached her because she believed her house to be haunted. Saxman sensed that the spirit belonged to a little boy who had lived in the house years ago with his family. He and his entire family had died, but the little boy’s spirit refused to cross over to the other side. Instead he remained rooted to the house. Saxman suggested that the woman leave a teddy bear or a ball of yarn in the room where the spirit stayed during the holidays. In her words, “Spirits want to be remembered and acknowledged.” After that incident, the spirit was gone from the house.

In another of Saxman’s stories, a woman came to see her and Saxman immediately felt very ill. She sensed a darkness around the woman and knew instinctively that the woman was sick. She told the woman that she needed to see a doctor, but the woman shrugged it off and said she was healthy as a horse. Saxman again tried to encourage her to get a checkup and the woman refused. Saxman acknowledges that all clients don’t listen to the advice that they are given. Saxman says she happened upon the woman’s obituary in the newspaper a few weeks later.

Could Saxman have prevented the woman from dying or stopped the car crash from happening? Those are all good questions and food for thought. Ultimately, we’re all responsible for our own choices. A psychic can’t force us to do anything. And sometimes things happen just as they’re supposed to happen — a phrase commonly used in a popular psychic fiction FBI crime series by Kay Hooper.

If nothing else, Saxman’s stories are entertaining and they shed light on what it’s like to utilize your psychic ability to help others.
