I went to see a medium once, just for fun because I don’t believe in that stuff. My husband (fiancé at the time) emailed the woman to set up the time and get her address. We showed up and she said that someone named Helena was waiting and eager to speak with me, which was interesting because my grandma’s name was Helen and she was the reason I was going (she always thought paranormal stuff was really cool).
I didn’t read too much into it as I figured she’s probably good at sleuthing and gathering info on people before they come so that she can offer things that sound legitimate. But I got my husband to check the email he sent and he never said my name, just “my fiancée and I”, so I was a little taken aback wondering how she would’ve known my name and how to search for my deceased family members. Then I figured, it would be easy for her to check his name on Facebook and see that he was engaged to me and get my name that way. But his profile was locked down and none of that info was shown publicly. And the email he sent simply had his first name and last initial, not a full name that would be easy to find (he’s got a very common first name).
She also told my husband no one was coming through for him, and if she did find my information beforehand through his name, you’d think it’d be easy enough to do the sleuthing on his part, too. Anyway, it was all a bit weird.
I’m still a real skeptic and I keep trying to think of ways this lady must have been able to figure out my name and my grandma’s name beforehand but I honestly have no idea how. So occasionally my logic disappears it does cross my mind that maybe there was something ‘paranormal’ to it.
I’d love to go again to a different medium someday and try to cover as many bases as I can before we go (misspell our names or something making it harder to find info on us beforehand) and see what happens. It was pretty cheap and even if it was total crap it was an interesting experience.
