What is Spiritualism? Is it for me? SSSG-007

Are you working as a psychic or a medium? Are you going to a psychic or a medium for readings? This podcast is for you! This podcast episode explores the history and the pioneers of spiritualism. It also discusses how society views spiritualism and the implications that can be faced when using the different areas of spiritualism practices.

The National Spiritualist Association of Churches defines Spiritualism as the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World.

Emanuel Swendenborg, Andrew Jackson, and the Fox Sisters were the pioneers of spiritualism.

The book, How to be a Christian Psychic, was also explored in this podcast.

“I’ve seen the amazing things that mediumship can do and I am honored and privileged that spirit chose me” Clayton Silva

Mary Helen Schmidt Interview: SSSG005

Sharing Animal Communication and Spiritual Arts has grown from my life-long passion for loving animals and a desire to deepen our relationships to become a major part of my life and career over the past ten years.” Mary Helen Schmidt

Our featured guest is able to intuitively connect with a person’s present or past animal companion through photographs, verbal descriptions, or in-person meetings. During this process, animals reveal their viewpoints and feelings on situations or themselves, including topics such as their living situations, favorite activities, current ailments, or human family.  Through the wisdom of your animal companion, she will receive images and direct responses that lead to a whole new range of information. Listen to her podcast to understand the process that she completes as she communicates with the animals. Her intuitive gifts are a great asset to humans and animals as they follow their spiritual paths.

The non-profit organizations that she wants others to be apart of are:

Rocking R Ranch & Rescue:

Happy Kats:

Jessi Putz Interview-SSSG004

“I am in energy work. I call to and interpret the energies surrounding you. They can be deceased like a loved one or living like you and I. I use my sensitivities to connect you with lost ones and yourself!”  Jessi Putz

When Jessi went to a psychic medium for a reading, she was told that she would work as a spiritualist.  Working with others who have childhood trauma is one of her specialties. She enjoys helping others heal through trauma and find peace. Having doubt in herself as a spiritualist has been her biggest barrier. She always needs to have physical evidence to prove that paranormal events in spiritualism are real. She considers herself a skeptic but becomes inspired when there is validation during a reading with a client.

Jessi would like others to support any non-profit organization who help animals that are in need. As an empath, she wants to give “a voice” to these animals so that they will receive the help they need.

Interview with Michelle Henderson-SSS01


Michelle Henderson is the founder of the Stepping Stones to Spiritual Guidance company. She created this podcast in the hopes of learning how others became spiritualist. Colin interviewed Michelle in the first episode so that she could share how she became “authentic” and how she was able to embrace who she was meant to be. The spirit world began to connect with Michelle when she was in her 20s. To fully understand what was happening, she took psychic classes from Kathleen Tucci.  The first stepping stone was accomplished! Information that Kathleen provided help guided Michelle to spiritual awakening. Unfortunately, life got in the way, and Michelle would not pursue spiritual life until her 50s. The timing was essential in Michelle’s journey. For Michelle to continue her spiritual journey, she enrolled in a class with Tracy Escobar where she would learn how to develop her psychic-mediumship.

Through this class, Michelle was lead to become a psychic medium healer. She also became interested in spiritual art and is able to draw loved ones that have crossed over. Her goal is to help others continue to heal as they fulfill their own journey and destiny.
