Dear Shaman Lizzie: I paid $100 for a 30 minute video session with a supposed reputable online psychic medium and was looking forward to communication from my deceased parents. To my surprise, the medium was unable to connect with anyone. I’m frustrated by this and feel i wasted my money. What should I do next time I try this?  Madeline, Dover, DE.

Dear Madeline: Hello and thank you for the question! I will attempt to answer this as thorough as possible.

When seeking the guidance of a psychic medium to connect with your deceased family members, it can be disheartening if the medium is unable to establish a connection. However, it’s important to remember that this doesn’t mean all hope is lost. There are several steps you can take to navigate this situation and find alternative ways to connect with your loved ones on the other side.

1. Stay Open and Patient

First and foremost, it’s essential to remain open and patient throughout this process. Connecting with the spirit world is not always a straightforward or immediate experience. Sometimes, it may take multiple attempts or a different approach to establish a connection. Keep an open mind and trust that the right connection will come in due time.

2. Seek Recommendations

If you’ve worked with a psychic medium who was unable to connect with your deceased family members, don’t be discouraged. Seek recommendations from trusted friends, family members, or online communities who have had positive experiences with psychic mediums. Personal referrals can often lead you to a medium who has a strong track record of successful connections.

3. Research Different Mediums

Take the time to research different psychic mediums in your area or online. Read their reviews, testimonials, and any information available about their abilities and experiences. Look for mediums who specialize in connecting with deceased loved ones or have a proven track record in this area. Finding a medium who resonates with you and your needs is crucial for a successful connection.

4. Consider Different Approaches

Psychic mediums use various techniques to connect with the spirit world. If one approach didn’t work for you, consider trying a different method. Some mediums may use tools like tarot cards or crystals, while others rely solely on their intuition. Exploring different approaches can open up new possibilities for establishing a connection with your deceased family members.

5. Explore Other Forms of Communication

While psychic mediums are a popular choice for connecting with the spirit world, they are not the only option. There are other forms of communication you can explore to connect with your deceased loved ones. These include meditation, dream interpretation, automatic writing, or even visiting places that hold significance to your family. Trust your intuition and choose the method that feels most comfortable and authentic to you.

6. Seek Support from Spiritual Communities

Connecting with the spirit world can be a deeply personal and emotional journey. Seek support from spiritual communities or support groups where you can share your experiences and learn from others who have gone through similar situations. These communities can provide guidance, comfort, and insights that can help you navigate the challenges of connecting with deceased family members.

7. Focus on Healing and Acceptance

While connecting with your deceased family members can bring closure and comfort, it’s important to focus on your own healing and acceptance. Sometimes, the inability to connect may be a sign that it’s time to let go and find peace within yourself. Remember that your loved ones are always with you in spirit, even if the connection isn’t as direct as you had hoped.


When a psychic medium is unable to connect with your deceased family members, it can be disappointing. However, there are many alternative paths to explore in order to find the connection and closure you seek. Stay open, patient, and willing to try different approaches. Remember that the journey of connecting with the spirit world is unique for each individual, and finding the right method and medium may require some exploration. Trust in the process and have faith that the right connection will come when the time is right.

Madeline, I hope this gives you some options when looking to communicate with your deceased family members.
