Ridgefield, Conn.- Psychic medium Melanie Barnum is all too aware that not everyone believes in her power and unique gift, and she knows that is understandable. Barnum has an office in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
“Most people won’t believe until it happens to themselves,” she says. Barnum states that she is merely an open channel for spirits to communicate with her and feels that there are signs of spirits amongst us at all times, you just have to be a believer in order to see and feel them.
Aside from being a psychic medium, Barnum is also a life couch, reflexologist, intuitive coach, hypnotist, reiki master, and published author of three books, “The Book of Psychic Symbols”, “The Steady Way to Greatness”, and “Psychic Abilities for Beginners”. She will be releasing her fourth book in November.
Barnum, her husband, and two children have been living in Bethel for more than 10 years, having lived in Norwalk before that.
She states that all her life she believed that it was very natural to read and feel peoples’ emotions but one day she received an injury to her head and it was then that a voice told her, “This is the job you need to do.”
Before taking her psychic abilities to a professional level, Barnum was a controller in a large company, and then became a small shop owner so that she could spend more time with her children.
Ever since she realized that sharing her abilities was her life’s calling, she discovered that a lot of her family members have the gift as well. She feels that being gifted with this ability has changed her life in a positive way. “I love what I do. It’s fantastic,” she says.
Barnum offers several classes in her office, ranging from how to awaken your psychic abilities to developing your psychic abilities. She also offers a number of workshops teaching life coaching, developing your intuition, and hypnosis.
Her next class will be an online one with Belle Salisbury and is focused around developing your psychic abilities and will cost $25.00. She also offers downloadable programs to teach individuals with meditation on her website, www.melaniebarnum.com.
Barnum adds that there are many sides to the spirit world and that she herself can be a real skeptic at times.
