Dear Shaman Lizzie: My youngest son died in a car accident in 2022. He was always very rebellious to me and we had very little contact prior to his death. Would a psychic medium be able to connect to his spirit in the afterlife? I would love to know if he’s doing good. Thank you in advance. Lydia, Grand Junction, CO.

Dear Lydia: Hello and thank you for your question. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is undoubtedly one of the most challenging experiences we can face. When that loved one is a child who had a turbulent relationship with us, it can leave us with a lingering sense of guilt and unanswered questions. In your case, the loss of your rebellious son in a car accident has undoubtedly left you longing for closure and a chance to connect with his spirit in the afterlife.

Many people find solace in the idea of afterlife communication, the possibility of reaching out to the spirits of our departed loved ones. While this concept may seem mysterious and elusive, there are various methods and individuals who claim to have the ability to facilitate such communication.

Understanding Afterlife Communication

Afterlife communication refers to the belief that it is possible to connect with the spirits of those who have passed away. This can be done through various means, including psychic mediums, spiritualists, or even personal experiences such as dreams or signs from the deceased.

It is important to approach the topic of afterlife communication with an open mind and a healthy dose of skepticism. While many people find comfort and healing through these experiences, it is essential to exercise caution and seek reputable sources.

Can a Psychic Medium Help?

Psychic mediums are individuals who claim to have the ability to communicate with spirits in the afterlife. They often serve as a bridge between the physical world and the spiritual realm. Consulting a psychic medium can be a way to seek answers and closure regarding your son’s passing and your strained relationship.

However, it is crucial to approach this with discernment. Not all psychic mediums are created equal, and it is essential to do thorough research before engaging in a session. Look for reputable mediums who have a track record of providing accurate and helpful information.

Seeking Answers and Closure

While psychic mediums can offer insights and potentially connect you with your son’s spirit, it is important to remember that they are not a guaranteed source of answers or closure. The afterlife is a mysterious realm, and communication with spirits is subjective and open to interpretation.

Instead of relying solely on external sources, consider exploring other avenues for healing and understanding. Grief counseling, support groups, and self-reflection can all contribute to finding the closure you seek. It may be helpful to focus on the lessons learned from your relationship with your son and the opportunity for personal growth.

Embracing the Memories

While it is natural to yearn for communication with a deceased loved one, it is equally important to cherish the memories and moments shared with them during their time on Earth. Reflect on the positive aspects of your relationship and the lessons learned from the challenges you faced together.

Remember, communication with your son’s spirit is not the only pathway to finding closure. Healing comes in many forms, and it is a deeply personal journey. Embrace the support of friends, family, and professionals who can guide you through this difficult process.


Seeking communication with a deceased loved one, especially one with whom you had a complicated relationship, is a natural desire. While psychic mediums can offer a potential avenue for connection, it is important to approach this with discernment and rely on multiple sources of healing and understanding.

Remember that closure and healing are personal journeys, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Embrace the memories of your son and the lessons learned, and allow yourself to find solace in the support of others.
