Greetings my friends,

Today, I’d like to tell you about a very exciting opportunity from the Forever Family Foundation. This is a rare chance to meet and learn from some of the country’s most evidential mediums at the Afterlife Explorers and Mediumship Convention next month. Two years in the planning, the convention will be held Friday through Sunday, Nov. 11-13 in the beautiful city of Fort Myers, Florida.afterlife-logo1

The featured fund-raiser on Saturday night is a presentation and Spirit Communication by Laura Lynn Jackson, renowned Forever Family Foundation Certified Medium and author of the New York Times best seller, The Light Between Us.

The Convention Program includes Spirit Communication sessions by eleven of the organization’s certified mediums (including your truly), optional dinners with mediums,  and four different program tracks, tailored to specific audiences:

  1. Practicing Mediums: for those who want to hone their mediumistic skills and learn more about evidential mediumship
  2. Mediumship Students: for those who are experiencing some type of non-physical communication, are curious about the process of mediumship, or have already begun their studies and aspire to develop skills necessary to work as a medium
  3. Visionary Explorers: for those who want to learn more about all types of evidence suggesting life after death
  4. The Bereaved: for those who have suffered the loss of loved ones and seek connections and evidence that they have survived physical death

Who is the Forever Family Foundation?

The stated goal of this tireless and committed organization (from their website):

To further the understanding of Afterlife Science through research and education while providing support and healing for people in grief, where afterlife science is defined as the study of phenomena associated with survival of consciousness after death; including near death experiences, after death communications, life after life (death), and reincarnation.

FFF_cert_medium_croppedForever Family Foundation is also a certifying agency for mediums worldwide, testing applicants for accuracy of Spirit messages with stringent standards, ensuring scientific evidence of the afterlife. For me, personally, it has been a great honor to be counted among their cadre of evidential mediums since my own certification in 2013. The study of afterlife research and the Foundation’s mission of helping those in grief aligns perfectly with my own personal mission of healing and of spreading the message that life is indeed continuous and love eternal!

Will I see you in my workshops?

Besides an open 90-minute Spirit Communication Demonstration with fellow medium, Joe Perreta on Saturday afternoon, I’m excited to offer the following two workshops at the convention.

  • Student Medium Track:  In this one-hour workshop on Evidential Mediumship Skills, we’ll learn to employ various “systems” for communicating with Spirit–active strategies that bring passive mediumship to a higher level of consistently accurate information.  Whether you’re a medium-wannabe, or already on the path of becoming a working medium, these strategies will bring form and function to your work.
  • Visionary Explorers Track:  I like to think of Past Life Regression and Life-Between-Lives Regression as modern-day time travel with the specific benefit of gaining enlightenment around troubling issues in our current incarnations on Earth. Once understood, healing and resolve can begin. In this exciting workshop I will guide each participant on a metaphysical journey to answer a question of greatest concern to them. Join me!

All participating mediums will be offering workshops on fascinating topics, that are sure to take you places you never imagined possible.

Greetings, my friends!

If you read my last post, you’ll recall that I’ve been on the move, literally, in recent months. In mid January 2014, I sold my house on the North Shore

Farewell, Kings Beach!

Farewell, Kings Beach!

of Massachusetts, stored most of my belongings, shared tearful goodbyes with dear friends, and set out on a 5-day trek to Minnesota with my sister Connie and Jack, the cat.

I left a good life behind; there’s no doubt about that. It was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve made in this lifetime for so many reasons, but my soul was demanding change. My life plan clearly included a shift in

Our final meal in Massachusetts was in a restaurant that held a significant message for us.

circumstance and focus at this point in my journey, and until I yielded to that demand, inner tension and turmoil would be ever present. [Side note: If this resonates with you, this post may be calling for you to do some reflecting on change in your life.]

Hello, Minnesota.

Now, spending the winter in my home state of Minnesota wasn’t exactly what I had in mind  late last summer when I finally set the wheels in motion for irrevocable change. I mean, who goes to Minnesota for the winter? Right? Nonetheless, Connie’s generous offer for me to stay with her for a while at her lovely home  in central Minnesota is enabling me to focus on those things that I’m truly passionate about, i.e., my long-neglected writing projects and my spiritual work. And of course, there’s the significant bonus of being close to family and many long-time friends, offering up the opportunity to reconnect at a more leisurely pace than the quick holiday visits of the past.

Home on a Minnesota Lake

My new waterview

As major transitions go, I’ve been blessed, really. Some days I still wake up and am surprised to find myself here in rural Minnesota. As I trace back through all the things that happened (or didn’t)  in the past year to bring me to this place, to this moment in time, to my sister’s side, I can only describe it as synchronistically spectacular and I’m pretty sure that it’s just the beginning.

Finding my balance in the present moment

This is the first time in many years that I have been without the responsibilities that go with home ownership, a stressful job, tenants. It has taken some time to quiet the constant and discordant hum of “gotta do’s” that vibrate through my mind and body. With each loose end tied up and each life-demand addressed and put to rest, the hum fades further, and quiet seeps in. I feel my consciousness shifting into a much greater awareness of the present moment. And here’s the best part: it’s in this quiet, centered state where our true potential can develop and shine.

Here are a few of my observations over the past weeks:

  • My physical balance is restored! When practicing yoga in the past year, my balance postures had gotten so bad, that standing on one leg had become downright impossible. I’d be hopping left, right, forward, backward, seeking a balance I simply could not conjure. Now, however, an oak tree would be envious of my tree pose! This simple example reminds us that our physical balance is an authentic reflection of our emotional state. Our bodies are always speaking to us, alerting us to lifestyle and relationship imbalances and asking for positive change toward a healthy mind, body and spirit. Are you paying attention? Is your body trying to reach you?
  • My psychic connections are getting stronger. I pick up mind-to-mind communications more readily than before. People I think about call or write me within hours. I’m experimenting with sending out thoughts to others to see if they pick up my messages. So, if I suddenly pop into your mind, I might just be trying to reach you!
  • My connection to Spirit is enhanced. Physical phenomenon is increasing in frequency and mental clarity is improving. I’ll share more about this next week, when I tell you about my sister Laura’s recent visit (from Spirit, that is).
  • My dreams are very vivid, and I’m remembering them better. They are complex and kinda crazy, but hold messages that are making sense to me.

So, yes, it was a big move in more ways than I can count, but I’m enjoying the journey—back to the place of my childhood, back to family and old friends, back to the seat of my soul.

The Meditation and Reading Room

The Meditation and Reading Room

I’m ready

To all those who sought me out during this period of transition, thank you for your patience! I’m ready to be of service once again. If you’re not in the Alexandria MN area, phone readings work very well. As a medium, I work through your voice vibration to connect with you and with Spirit. I also have Skype on DSL and it seems to be pretty stable, so if you have a strong connection and we can avoid peak hours, I’m willing to give it a go. We can always fall back to phone if needed.

For readings and hypnosis: Please see my services page to begin the appointment process. Once you decide what type of reading or service, please complete the form on the Appointments page. Payment can be made online, in advance.

Groups: If you have a group of friends and/or family that are interested in readings and would like to host a party, please contact me. Likewise, if you are involved with an organization or business that would like to host a day-long or weekend metaphysical workshop, drop me an email or call (978-317-4076) and let’s chat about it.

Meet me at the Lifestyles Expo!

almost 12,000 people, surrounded by a chain of beautiful lakes. To introduce myself to the community, I’ll be participating in the Lifestyles Expo sponsored and organized by the Echo Press in Alexandria. If you’re nearby, please come by my booth – I’d love to meet you!  Over 50 vendors are participating, so it should be fun.

Earth Day Raffle: win a free reading

FFF-MCP-Series-sealThe Forever Family Foundation, the New York organization which first certified me as a Spirit Medium, is offering an Earth Day raffle for free readings from five different mediums, and yours truly is one of them. The raffle will be held on April 22, 2014 and $5 buys you a chance. Check it out! I’m looking forward to meeting the person who wins a reading from me–could it be you?

I plan to dedicate a separate post soon to this amazing organization, but let me offer a brief introduction. Borrowing from their website, the organization’s goal is “to further the understanding of Afterlife Science through research and education while providing support and healing for people in grief.” Afterlife science is defined as: “The study of phenomena associated with survival of consciousness after death; including near death experiences, after death communications, life after life (death), and reincarnation.”

The work of Forever Family Foundation is admirable in its scope, scientific integrity, and healing capacity, and I  am honored to be certified by them and involved with their organization. I encourage you all to spend some time on their website, tune into Signs of Life radio show, and consider becoming a member of their worthy organization.


I was first introduced to the full Sanskrit blessing of Namaste a few years ago. It struck a strong chord in me and I’d like to share it with you now:

“I honor the place in you where Spirit lives.
I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Truth, of Light, and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me,
then we are One.”

Namaste, my friends!

~In love and light, Renee

You’ve got another opportunity to hear it—and this time, it’s FREE!

The Lynn Museum has asked me to speak at their lunchtime MESA (Museum Enrichment Series for Adults) next Wednesday, Dec. 11th from noon to 1:00pm.  Once again, I’ll be giving a presentation on Lynn’s Moll Pitcher, an 18th century clairvoyant who read the fortunes of sea captains, European Nobles and commoners alike.  I’ll explain the “what” and “how” of modern day mediumship and provide an audience-style mediumship demonstration. Come with an open mind and  open heart, and maybe you will be among those receiving a message from a Loved One in Spirit!

Greetings my friends!

The legacy of Moll Pitcher lives on! Our August 2nd “Medium’s Night at the Museum” was so successful, that Whispers From the Light is again collaborating with the Lynn Museum, here in Lynn, Massachusetts. Lynn is among the oldest cities in America, founded in 1629 on Boston’s North Shore, and has a very rich tradition of prophetic, psychic, and spirit communication–dating as far back as the 1600’s.

So, if you happen to be in the area on October 5th, 2013, put us on your calendar for a very special event. Here are the event details:

Moll Pitcher Day – Spirit Communication with Local Mediums

MollPitcherFinalThe Lynn Museum celebrates our city’s rich history of Psychics, Fortune Tellers, and Spiritualist Mediums in this extraordinary event. Named for Lynn’s Moll Pitcher, an internationally renowned 18th century clairvoyant and fortune-teller, Moll Pitcher Night provides a historical perspective on this 275-year old tradition of prophetic, psychic, and spiritual communications in Greater Lynn, followed by the “what” and “how” of the practice of modern-day mediumship.

Participants will experience audience-style mediumship demonstrations in which short messages are delivered, while they wait for their 15 minute private reading—all provided by local mediums trained in the true Spiritualist tradition of evidential mediumship. Moderated by Lynn medium, Renee Buck, this is one event you’ll not want to miss!

Date: Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Time: 3:30-6:30pm (Please arrive by 3:15pm; program begins promptly at 3:30pm)

Location: The Lynn Museum, 590 Washington Street in Lynn, MA.

Ticket and Reservations: $30 per person.  Ticket includes both audience style mediumship demonstration and 15-minute private reading with a medium. Space is limited, so reserve your place today through the Lynn Museum website. 

Bring with you: a notepad or journal to take notes of your reading and messages from Spirit.

Greetings to my friends and readers around the globe!

Last Friday night’s Moll Pitcher Night, aka Medium’s Night at the Museum, was a great success by all measures. With nearly 60 people in attendance, and many more in Spirit (!), the night held plenty of surprises, laughter, and a few happy tears as Mediums connected Sitters with their loved ones in Spirit. Many thanks to the Lynn Museum for hosting the event, to all who participated, and to the “magnificent 7” mediums who joined me, sharing their gifts throughout the evening!

Future post on Moll Pitcher: My research on Moll Pitcher (1738-1813) as Lynn’s highly-respected clairvoyant and  prophetess led me to some remarkable discoveries! She was indeed a true Heroine and American Patriot, using her powers of clairvoyance to help obtain victory over the King’s forces during the Revolutionary War.  To give Moll her due, I’ll be writing a longer post dedicated to this fascinating and courageous woman.

My fall workshop schedule is ready for enrollment. These workshops are designed to guide you on the next step of your soul’s journey.

Workshop offerings include:

  • Psychic Development/Mediumship I for Beginners on Thursday evenings
  • Inward, Outward, and Upward! Mind, Body, and Spirit—Active Healing through the Chakras (includes Yoga!) on Saturday mornings
  • Soul’s Journey through Past Life Regression on Wednesday noon hour
  • The Methods, Modes and Magic of Meditation on Friday noon hour

All workshops will be offered in Lynn, Massachusetts and will begin mid September. Three of the workshops will be held at the Lynn Museum.

Please see my Workshops page for detailed information. Depending on interest, I may be adding extra sessions at different times. Feel free to contact me if all tickets are sold for a workshop, but you’re still interested. In fact, contact me if you have any questions or comments at all regarding classes or workshops: renee@whispersfromthelight.com

Reminder that readings can be done by Skype, so not matter where you are in the world, Messages from Loved Ones, or Akashic Records Reading is possible. 

Have a wonderful day, and I hope to see you in class or online!

In love and light,
~Renee Buck
