The other side is much closer to us than we realize. For a select few, it’s actually a very present daily part of their lives, such as the case with Tim Braun, an internationally renowned medium and author out of California. His story begins at a young age with seeing spirits and hearing voices, yet this realization came simultaneously while his brother was being diagnosed with schizophrenia, claiming to hear voices as well. It wasn’t until Tim was 22, well after the age schizophrenia would have presented itself, that he felt confident what he was experiencing was real and was not a mental disorder. It was from this age/time frame that he really began to step into the space of embracing his abilities. It wasn’t until after a dream, in that same phase of life, that Tim was compelled to go to India and work with mother Teresa did he really step into that power to start helping others find peace with loved ones that have passed on. He describes this dream more as a vision, and against all odds with friends dissuading him from going due to an outbreak of plague, he went. Everything unfolded as he had seen in his dream, such as the airplane parking in the middle of the runway after landing and then deboarding the plane to greet the missionaries who then carried his luggage, to finally meeting mother Teresa herself. This meeting imparted many lessons on him but the biggest is remembering compassion in all that we do in life. Of all of the celebrities and heads of states that Tim has that he’s met, only mother Theresa truly embodied the vibration of compassion.
How Tim carries that awareness into his work is remembering that individuals on this side and the other, are fragile, regardless of what they’ve experienced in life. Having compassion for the message that has been received, no matter how awkward it is on occasion, as he shares interesting stories on, such as identifying a man to a woman by his penis, it is important to embody the message so that the living can really feel and identify with our loved ones who have passed. As a medium, this can be done through sight, taste, smell, & sound, so it is always important to hold space for those senses by refraining from wearing simple things like perfume or lotion when attending a sitting, so the best message can be brought forth.
Some of the big takeaways working with the other side that has really left an impression with Tim and then now being able to relate to us, is no matter what you do in life, do it to the absolute best of your ability. On the other side that’s all that truly matters. Regardless of your title, income, or notoriety, from the trashmen, to the CEO, to the fashion model, to the hairstylist, at the end of the day the dead would impart that being committed and passionate about what you do, is ultimately of the utmost importance and in that way the living have a lot to learn but we can start here together, now.
