Helping Grieving Hearts to Heal

Dr. Cathy Ripley Greene

FAQs About Mediumship

Why might you want to connect with Spirit?

When we lose someone close to us, we want to know so much. Contacting Spirit can validate our belief in the afterlife, and what happens to our souls when we die physically. Where did they go, and what are they doing? Are they okay? Do they know that I love them, and do they love me? Maybe you want to send Spirit a message, or make amends, or you’re wondering if you will be reunited “on the other side.” People who want to connect with Spirit are looking for assurance, advice, uplift, support and healing. It’s part of the healing process.

Who goes to see a Medium?

I have seen an equal amount of people grieving the loss of parents, partners, wives and husbands. I also see people who are grieving the loss of children, friends and even pets. Some people come for a session because they are interested and curious about the process and even some who are making connections of their own and need support and guidance.

Grieving the loss of a loved one is an on-going, continual process. It takes time, and just when you think you are “out of the woods,” the pain and sadness can arrive without notice. Each one of us experiences the healing journey in our own, individual way. Sitting for a session, I like to say, is a healing balm on a deep wound. We still need to process, to mourn, to work through the changes in our lives that the loss has brought to us but knowing that your loved one in spirit is settling in to their new state of being and remains connected and aware of the loved ones they have ‘left behind,” can ease your grief and bring you a sense of peace.

What happens during a session with you, and how does this really work?

In person sessions are held in a comfortable room in a professional office setting. I’ll ask you to sign a consent form and then I will explain the process and how it is you should respond to the flow of information from Spirit. I will start with a blessing to welcome Spirit and then we enjoy the experience. There are tissues, water and snacks if you should need them.

Sessions by phone or video chat are also available and are just as effective as in person sessions.

Can I ask to connect with a certain person?

I cannot control who comes through, but I often say, “I don’t know why the person/people you hold dear wouldn’t want to connect.” If they are present to the experience they will usually step forward. If they are out bowling - lol – we may not hear from them. Sometimes it might not be who you expect, or it may be multiple people. You might hear from someone you hardly knew, or from someone who is related to someone else in your life and they see you as a messenger meant to relay a message. Most people seem very pleased with the connections they make and the outcome of their session.

Does Cathy offer private or group sessions?

I can tailor your session for you. You can come alone, you can come with a family member or a friend. You can schedule a small private group, a large private group or you can come to a larger public session. You can even enjoy a session via video chat such as Skype or Facetime or by phone. For more detail you can read about my offerings here.

What is the ultimate intention of a mediumship experience?

The ultimate intention and goal of this experience is to support the healing process during the long and emotional journey of grief and mourning. When you connect with a loved one in spirit, it encourages healing and the ability to move forward. I like to say, it’s like a soothing balm on a deep wound.

What should I do after a reading?

After a reading it is best to do something relaxing. You may want to sit quietly or go for a walk. You may even want to indulge in some comfort food. Give yourself a break from stress and tension and let the messages from the Other Side settle in. It often requires days and sometimes even weeks for you to receive the maximum benefit of the information presented during a reading. Some people report feeling fatigued after a session. What we know is that the energy of connecting along with the elevated emotions access the brain in a way that increases brainwave activity.

What is the client’s job during the session?

Try to be as open to receiving as possible. Listen, and validate whether the information given makes sense or not. It’s a three conversation between you, me and your lovies in spirit! Most important, relax and benefit from your connection with Spirit.

What’s the difference between a psychic and a medium?

Psychics rely on their basic sense of intuition and psychic ability to perceive information from the vibrational energy of people or objects. A psychic can read this energy to perceive past, present, or future possibilities in that person’s life.

I like to say psychic energy is like the AM dials on a radio. AM is a certain band-with and strength of signal.

A medium is a psychic who can also connect with the spirit or consciousness of people who have physically died. So every medium is a psychic, but not every psychic is a medium. A medium uses her or his abilities to tune in to the spirit energy surrounding a person. This means mediums rely on the presence of non-physical energy outside of themselves for the accurate and specific information relevant to the person in the session.

Mediumship then, is like the FM dials on a radio. Different band-with, different strength and signal.

What if no one comes from spirit to connect with you during a session?

I have never had this experience during a session. In all my years of sitting with Spirit, someone always presents themselves. But, if that were to happen it does not mean that Spirit does not want to connect with you, but that it might not be the right time. They may be waiting for a better time, when their messages make more sense. Sometimes, a person coming for a session is in deep, recent grief and can feel blocked or unable to make sense of the information coming through. In the rare case that this happens with your reading, we will reschedule a reading a few months later and try again with additional fee.

How can I prepare for a reading?

All you need to do is present with an open heart and an open mind.

What are the senses and what do they mean?

The “Clairs" are the psychic senses, or as I like to call them, the senses of the soul. Every Medium has their own unique combination of dominant senses. Here are some of most common:

Clairvoyance - clear seeing
Claircognizance - clear knowing
Clairaudience - clear hearing
Clairsentience - clear feeling

What is the science behind Mediumship?

Science is a language we use to explain things, including the metaphysical. I think you would agree that before we knew how to explain gravity it existed, right? While we are not able to understand exactly how these psychic and mediumistic experiences occur, we do know through scientific study that brainwaves created in a specific sulci of the brain register differently when a person making connections is tested. For many years mediums and psychics along with monks and meditators have been subjected to brainwave mapping, MRI imaging and cognitive testing. We are beginning to put the pieces together and this will lead us to the understanding that we are just tapping in to our deeper senses, it is normal and just like gravity, it existed before we could understand and explain it using the language of science.

About Dr. Cathy Ripley Greene

Thank You for Your Interest in Connecting with Spirit.

As a Medium, I connect with and communicate with those loved ones who have passed to spirit. It is my belief that we never die, we just change. As I like to say, we are always alive, either here in physical form or in non-physical form. I have come to know, that we are spiritual beings here having a human experience and that when we are finished, no matter how long or short that experience might be, we return to that which we came from – pure positive energy, also referred to as Spirit. Another way I say it is, "We are not DEAD, we are living in another dimension."

Through my work, I have met with many people mourning the loss of loved ones as well as those simply curious about the process. I have, of course, experienced loss myself, the loss of family and friends as well as people I meet with who are in transition. While it is not easy adjusting to the loss of our loved ones from our physical world, I have found that offering connection with Spirit is soothing, healing and transformative for those missing loved ones, those who are mourning, and those who are interested in exploring the idea of life in spirit.

As an evidence based Medium, I require Spirit to offer information and evidence you can validate, “proof” that they are who they say they are so you will recognize them beyond any doubt. Our loved ones in spirit want us to be happy and as such a session offers healing laughter as well as tears of release.

Our beloved in spirit also like to offer proof of presence in our lives by impressing upon me information about current activities in your experience so you will understand that “they see you now.”

To connect with your loved ones, I offer one on one private sessions, family / friend sessions, as well as small and large group gallery sessions. I am also available for fundraising events and corporate gatherings.

Many Blessings, Cathy

Kind Words about Mediumship Experiences with Cathy

Dr. Cathy Ripley-Greene is without a doubt, the most inspiring , caring ,and remarkably gifted person I have ever met. She has helped change my intense grief ,after I lost my only sibling this past year, my sister Patricia, to a warm feeling of comfort. I can’t begin to convey the healing I have experienced. I feel closer to my sister in spirit today, knowing she is watching over me and the connection she made with me through messages conveyed through Dr. Cathy. My sister even knew what my new granddaughter looked like before she was born, before anyone else…..because in spirit she saw her first! Loving thoughts and supportive messages came to me from my sister in a wonderful session at Dr. Cathy’s healing center. Some things were so specific between my sister and I that no one could have known.

This evening was full of laughter and tears – as we shared others pain and joy. For example, one woman in our group of 10 had a life changing moment. Her mother-in-law came through in spirit and actually apologized to my friend for all the hate she had bestowed upon her when she was alive.

There were many moving and heartfelt moments that evening. For me, my life has changed as a result of this experience. I’m much more in tune with myself and I have a new awareness of my sister’s spirit. I actually talk to her and ask her for guidance all the time. If somebody told me I would be doing this, I would probably have told them they were crazy. Here’s the thing – all you need to be is open to it. Dr. Cathy is the real deal!

Thank you Cathy for helping me open up my inner spirit. Thank you for bringing me the presence of my sister’s spirit. I will be forever grateful to you. I hope this helps others who may hesitate to attend what could be a life changing session.

—Paula M Flynn

Thank you so much for the guidance and love through our reading over the phone. Your insights have helped the clouds part and my focus has grown more clear and confident. Many of my doubts were answered and my instincts validated. I’ve been in a loop of self-defeating thoughts that needed divine guidance and spiritual context to stop. Admittedly I was more of a skeptic with my spiritual leanings at the time of our call but by the end felt connected to source and truth.

—Eternally grateful, Jeff MacKinnon

Thank you SO much for inviting me to join my friends today for their reading. I am fascinated with the work that you do and feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to witness Olivia's "reunion" with Brenda, Craig and Caroline. What you did for them was such a beautiful gift. I can't think of a greater gift for a grieving family than what you did today. So many thanks and blessings to you always. 🙏🏼💙

—Nancy Plumer

Hi Cathy, Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the time you spent with my sister Gail and I on Friday. It was a wonderfully cathartic experience.

While we connected a lot of the dots while we sat with you, much more came into focus afterwards, as you said it would. We pretty much found answers in everything you referenced, and I felt you to be a kindred spirit.

We will definitely be back at some point and I am certain that others will seek you out when we share our experience. We have a long journey ahead of us as you can imagine - specifically getting justice for Dad, but you have given us the peace and resolve we needed. Thank you for your kindness and for sharing your gift. We truly appreciate it.

—Lynne – Marie

Thank you again so much, I am sure that I will see you again, and certainly look forward to that conversation as well.

So much thanks and gratitude.

—Laura C.

I've been meaning to write. Last Thursday was amazing! You had all three of us intrigued, stunned and very emotional! We went out afterwards for a glass of wine and time to reflect and take it all in. I saw a side of you that was just incredible. Great job!!! It took me a couple of days to come down from this experience! You are the best!

The word “epiphany” comes from an ancient Greek word which means manifestation or striking appearance. In essence it is an experience of a sudden, striking, or an enlightened realization. It is often used to describe a relatively rare occurrence which gives one a depth of understanding. Throughout life’s journey people are fortunate enough to experience an epiphany. I am happy to say that I recently had such an experience when I sat with Cathy and she acted as a medium. I've known Cathy for many years and she is an excellent chiropractic physician. She is an equally excellent medium.

The experience I had in connecting with loved ones who have passed away was truly remarkable. It was as real as are you and I. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that those with whom we connected in Spirit were there and communicating as clearly as we do on an everyday basis. Making that connection, particularly with my Mother who died in 1979, was a wonderful experience and has given me tremendous comfort, warmth and a wonderful sense of peace. I now have a clearer understanding of the circle of our lives and exactly how close we are to those who have gone before us. I am truly grateful to Cathy for sharing her gift.

—Jim Brady, ESQ

I want to thank you again for a truly amazing experience.

I am 21 years old and heard about Cathy through my mother who used her service. I own a detailing business and the day I listened to the recording of my mother’s mediumship session with her, I received an inquiry for detailing from Cathy! It was absolutely unbelievable and I instantly knew I had to use her services myself. I just went for my session and it was truly the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced. This is a million dollar service and I highly recommend everyone try it for themselves. Thank you so much Cathy for a wonderful session.

—Grant D.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We had a GREAT session today! We all love it and were so happy with everyone we heard from. Some f us sat down and talked about it afterward and may have figured out a few more things. I, of course, already knew it would be great… everyone was blown away! We will definitely be back for more.

—Renie Drinan

Hi Cathy, wanted to thank you for sharing your incredible gift last night in a group session and look forward to our next adventure! After Mary and I left the stage you were asking for the letter big G and the song John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmit.

My father's name is Gordon nicknamed big G and one of our Scottish clans is the house of Gordon. I drive the school buses for the town of Medfield for one of my Jobs and one of the bus stops is Johns. Every day I sing John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt to the students at that stop.

Thank you so much!

I recently attended your session at Sacred Tree Yoga Studio and just had to tell you a little story. I was sitting in the back row and when you came to me you asked me if the song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles meant anything to me. It did not - we did listen to some Beatles growing up but no song in particular had any special meaning. Anyway, I think my mom's mom was coming through to me. I was at the gym yesterday - I go to a very small group training place where there are about 4-5 people in a class and the trainers are about 25 years old and play all sorts of current loud music. Well, about half way through the workout Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds came on! I couldn't believe it and I thought about how you said to pay attention and that sometimes things happen after your reading. It was pretty cool and made me feel like my grandmother was sending me a sign. About half way through the song one of the trainers said what the heck is this song and changed it - LOL! Anyway, thank you!!

I had the pleasure and honor of meeting with Cathy last week in her office. I went with an open heart and an open mind hoping to connect with some family members who had passed on.I had been carrying such heaviness in my heart for several years and just needed to know that my “people” were okay, happy and now pain free on the other side.What an amazing and powerful journey Cathy took me through. There is no doubt in my mind that her readings are real. She told me things that only my Mom and Dad would know to say to me. I left her office with the weight of the world lifted off of my shoulders and a feeling of comfort and peace in my heart and mind. Thank you Cathy for one of the best experiences of my life. You are awesome! Lori McIntosh LoVuolo
