I've been reading for little over a decade but it doesn't start there. This gift has been passed down from generations and my heritage is from the Balkan region, of the former Yugoslavia. Both of my grandmas (from this area) had psychic abilities, one a medium and the other read tea leaves. In honor of my beautiful mother (whose last name was Nikolic) and who has transitioned to the other side; I wanted to honor her and thank her for what she passed down to me. My birth name is Marsha, but in honor of my heritage, my intuitive medium name is Nika.
I've gathered many ideas from the other side; what I've learned and the message I want to be able to share with others is that there is more to life than just what we see with our eyes. The theme I've picked up on during my readings is that love can transcend everything. Love goes beyond our physical bodies and any trial or tribulation here on earth can be conquered with love. Love of self, love of life, and love of others.
Your essence transcends more than just the physical body. Think of our source (God/Jesus/Allah/higher power) as the equivalent to LOVE. Let's say for a minute that our source equals the ocean. If I were to take a cup of water out of the ocean, the ocean tides still rise and fall, the sea life still swim and are nourished from within. Eventually that cup of water will evaporate and return to its source.
I have the gift and ability to read energy (our source) and connect with loved ones, and connect with our past, present, and our future. The source energy contains it all. This is why I say that love (our source) can transcend anything-the more we embrace love, the more aligned we will be and the more satisfied we will be with our journey here on earth.
