Ann is able to bridge the gap between two planes of existence, that of the living and that of the dead, by providing evidential proof of life after death with concise information. She works very much like John Edwards or even Whoopi Goldberg in the movie, “Ghost.” Ann conveys evidence that we are spiritual beings, and that there is much more to us than our bodies.
A medium is a psychic who has fine-tuned his or her extrasensory perception and can interface with the spirits in other dimensions. They are able to feel and/or hear thoughts, voices or mental impressions from the spirit world. A medium is able to become completely receptive to the higher frequency or energies on which spirit people vibrate. Mediumship is much more involved than psychic’s because a medium is opening him/herself to a discarnate energy. Certain individuals are more prone to mediumship than others. Usually they must develop mediumship skills over a period of time. A psychic senses energy around the living people or objects. A medium not only senses energy, but is able to interface between the slower vibrations of the physical world and the much faster ones of the spirit world.– James Van Pragh
Communicate, Validate, Appreciate
One of the most comforting things that can happen is to get a message from a departed loved one. Even with all the scientific study being done in the world today, little is known for sure about what happens to your soul, your consciousness when you pass. In seven years of mediumship, the people Ann has not been able to contact can be counted on one hand. Her ability to truly connect with the other side and strongly intuit messages is remarkable.
With mediumship work, people are more thankful than for anything I have ever done in my life, and I had always considered myself someone who helped people. I realized that this connection with spirit was too important not to focus on as a career. I am a conduit of love, healing, forgiving. It is the bond of love between us all that facilitates the connection– Ann Marie Hoff
Who comes thru in a session?
People who you have a close connection with. I am a very powerful channel, and can contact most everyone on the other side. If you ask to speak with someone specifically, they will come thru. At times, family members you never knew- (great-grandfather, great aunt, real parents that have adopted you out) will come thru. This is because you have traveled together before and you are vibrationally attached. Sometimes the spirit of a neighbor or friend comes thru- hoping that you will pass a message thru.
How long is a session?
I schedule at half hour & hour intervals. A first session is usually an hour and a half. The smallest amount of time you can book is a half hour. If you are concerned about the length and cost, write your questions down beforehand, so you are making best use of your time.
Do I need to set up a session specifically for a mediumship reading, or can it be a little of everything?
First and foremost, I am a medium. Even when doing an animal or a spirit guide session, messages from the other side may present themselves. I channel, and get specific information, Most sessions end up being a little of everything, unless you want one specific message.
How does Ann receive information (as a medium)?
This information comes thru in several ways, words, pictures, feelings, smells even. Working with spirit guides, they basically use your verbiage, and you can count on them to understand the way your mind and your metaphors work. With loved ones on the other side, Ann walks the line to convey the message without adding her perspective to it. This is tricky, because many people will not have the words to express themselves and send Ann the “feelings” or “emotions” for her to put into words. At times there is nothing to represent the intense sensation being conveyed. Another strength Ann has is that as an artist, she is used to seeing “in pictures”, and has a wealth of experiences to draw from for correlation.
How can I find peace from the grief I am experiencing from the loss of my loved one?
When I lost my mother last year, it was painful, and not really comforting that she went on in spirit; I was mourning the loss of her physical presence. I happened to open up the Allison Dubois book to the page that was a story about her experience with death & loss, and she said pretty much the same thing. It actually made her madder- knowing all the power and information she had and not being able to do anything. I believe we have to experience and feel grief to let go of it and move on. It can be helpful to write a letter or say out loud to the deceased what you need to say to them, and settle things in your heart. Don’t worry; they will get the message, with or without a medium.
What is the difference between a psychic and a medium?
A medium is someone who has a connection with the other side. The term “psychic” seems to conjure up fortunetellers and is used to connote “telling the future” or “reading minds”. Everyone is psychic to some degree or another, but not everyone is a medium.
What skills does Ann use ?
I use clairsentience, clairvoyance and clairempathy primarily, though each spirit may use a different combination. I raise my vibration to meet spirit and spiritual energies lower theirs.When I channel someone on the other side very often I will feel how they died in my body. That is the door through which they left this world, so it is the door by which they reappear.
