Who would have thought that those who have passed away could be a good source of love advice?
According to Cindi Sansone-Braff, a psychic from Long Island, this is the case and she will be at the New York Witch Festival towards the end of October discussing this topic.
“My workshop will be about what I’ve learned talking to the dead, and the messages they have about life and love,” she says. “A lot of dead people say they should have loved better.”
It is her belief that although the dead are walking amongst us, there is no reason to be frightened by them.
Even though television and the media make us believe that spirits are terrifying and love to haunt us, Sansone-Braff states that they are not scary and are just in lingo, willing to offer love and relationship advice to anyone who knows how to listen to them.
Sansone-Braff is holding her workshop at the Witch Festival at the UpSky Long Island Hotel in Smithtown on October 26th. She will be discussing how anyone willing to learn is able to communicate with the dead during the first portion of her workshop.
People who attend her workshop will be educated on how to listen to and receive messages from the other side; these include visual as well as musical cues. She is also dedicating a portion of her workshop to informing the audience of how just because someone has passed away, that does not mean that they are now scary and dangerous.
“The dead are not here to frighten us,” says 60-year-old Sansone-Braff. “They are actually extremely funny. Really a great sense of humor.”
Sansone-Braff has a private business where she consults clients at her East Patchogue home when not teaching workshops. She communicates with deceased spirits and uses tarot cards to help make her clients’ love life and relationships more loving, long lasting, and fulfilling.
She gives an example of how she helped one of her clients; the woman’s husband was very abusive and she told her father about the problem, hoping he could help her. Instead, she says, “her father always downplayed how bad he was, and told her that she’d made her bed and had to lie in it,” says Sansone-Braff. “A month after the father died, she came for a reading, and he apologized and said, ‘I didn’t know how bad your husband was.’
“He listed all the things he now knew her husband did wrong, and told her to divorce him. She got a divorce and has been much happier since.”
Melissa is another one of Sansone-Braff’s clients and she states, “I never really believed in this stuff, until I saw Cindi. She has a gift.”
Melissa, who did not want to disclose her last name during the interview, says that thanks to Sansone-Braff, she is now able to speak with her deceased mother and father.
Sansone-Braff wants to make it clear that she does not brew potions or cast spells, she is not a witch or a member of the Church of Wicca like most speakers are at the Witch Festival where her workshop will be held. She simply shares their interest in the spiritual world and that is what draws her there.
“Witches practice spells,” she says. “I’m just a conduit. I deliver messages from the dead and translate them.”
