I have had the privilege of being read twice by Brough: first, in person; and second, over the phone. The similarity between a face-to-face reading and a phone reading is that the readings are personal to you, whether the reading is a message, channeling, or learning the answers to your specific questions from the Other Side. The purpose of your reading is to help you learn what you need in that specific moment in time, for you to be able to move forward in your life. The differences between a face-to-face reading and over-the-phone reading are the style of contact, and cost. With a phone reading there are no costs for gas or parking, you have the convenience of where you want to experience your reading due to cellphone access, or physical health access, and the efficiency of time not spent traveling to the reading. The quality of Brough’s readings is the same: insightful!
A Reading in Person
For me, I have previously experienced psychic readings, tarot cards, palm readings, and tea leaves. I have experienced ‘psychic’ moments in my life from visitation dreams, to astral travel, to seeing auras, and even to the most unlikely of coincidences.
In April 2012, I emailed my request for a reading with Brough, and was read in person in September 2012 due to a cancellation. My reasons for wanting a reading with Brough are because of his reputation for being honest with his skill, his accuracy in presenting the information he is given by Spirit, and his integrity to use his skill for good. For me, I had reached a crossroad in my life, and needed the guidance of Spirit to confirm my intuition for the decisions I had made. It had been a long time since I had experienced a ‘sign’, or remembered a ‘visitation’ in a dream. Where did everybody go? Is Spirit angry with me? Disappointed in me? Why did Spirit make me feel so alone in my conflicts? I had prepared a list of 10 questions in advance that I wanted – needed – answers to. In my face-to-face reading with Brough, every question was addressed by Spirit without my telling Brough anything! Furthermore, Brough could not have known any of the information he expressed to me because I don’t exist on the Internet in any search engine or participate on social media!
My reading began with Brough sitting across from me with his eyes closed. In fact, the entire reading happens with his eyes closed! I was so excited to finally have this reading that my own energy was vibrating so high that Brough said I was sparking! He then instructed me to practice deep breathing with him to allow me to focus my energy on Spirit. Brough told me that there were many Spirits coming through talking all at once, and then he stopped talking to me. I kept focusing my breathing and then in the quiet, Brough told me that they are deciding who needs to go first; they are getting organized to tell me a story. The following is a list of messages that Spirit told Brough:
Spirit says the “J name” does not understand why things are the way they are and that I am going to need to explain it to him later on.
A woman of the cloth, a Catholic nun, came forward to tell me “sorry”. She told Brough the circumstances of why and how my bio-mom was forced to give me up for adoption. Also, my bio-mom was a teacher, and that I come from a line of teachers.
A Spirit with an “M” name – Mary. She tells me you were the emotional scapegoat. No, she is not angry. She is smiling and closing a door. I’m seeing a clover. It looks like a poppy like, “Where the Poppies Grow”. Possibly grandparents but more than that. They are smiling. You were carrying the emotional turmoil too long. You didn’t have a choice. I’m being shown a sister figure involved. She is like your mother: a sense of duplicity about the sister and the mother. They care about what people think. They are concerned with their reputation. Their values are the same – duplicity – which are not yours. Distance is needed between you and them because they do not like having a mirror held up to their actions, and that is what you did. Your nephew hasn’t been given the truth of what happened and doesn’t understand why you are not a part of the family. You can open the door again but open it slowly because nothing has changed and they will repeat their actions because they believe in what they do. This whole ordeal has been difficult for you because you sit in it but are not of it. You embody what you see. Whatever it is, you absorb it to try to understand and learn from it, but they do not. They emotionally sabotage you so that you are perceived “perfect”. They attack you because you want to do better, but you are the cause for them to see their flaws.
Then, the messages changed from channeling to a reading: Brough describes the energy of each of my children; their relationship with me, and the relationship to their future endeavours.
Brough describes my husband, and our lovely (“in the truest sense”) family life.
So, how accurate or appropriate was this reading? Could I apply this information to, say, my cat?! Absolutely not because this is how the information relates to me:
I do have a nephew with a “J” name who does not know why my family and I are estranged from my parents, his grandparents.
My grandmother is “Mary”, and my grandfather was a cadet in WWII (the poppies). I became extremely close to them as a young adult. Our relationship was of unconditional love, whereas my relationship with my parents was conditional love. I was diligent in my pursuit to be the perfect daughter, to only see the good around me and to make my parents proud so they would keep me, love me. But, when my own children recognized their grandparents’ behaviour to be not of “good character”, I realized that I needed to set an example of courage and strength as their mom. So, I asked my parents to stop, but they took it as an insult and a judgment. I just didn’t believe that my parents would ever completely reject me and then abandon me because I was asking for a better relationship with them. My mother rallied support through intimidation from my brother and sister, and even family friends. She emotionally sabotaged me by returning all evidence of my existence in the family, even my adoption papers, in anonymous packages on my front porch with hate letters taped to my front door over the past 7 years. I couldn’t make this toxic relationship better, so I had to “close the door”. Consequently, I needed to know that I hadn’t disappointed my grandparents; that I made the right decisions.
The nun was exciting to me because I am adopted and I wanted to know why I was placed in this family, and what was I supposed to learn from them. I know my birth name and it is a traditional Catholic name even though I was not raised Catholic. Furthermore, after raising my family, I received my B.Ed. degree and I have become a high school teacher, just like my birth mom!
A Reading by Phone
The reading by phone was in March 2014. It was convenient to pay through online banking, and for time well spent. For me, the purpose of this reading was like a spiritual check-up. Brough explained that the messages in a reading are for things that are changing, and if there are no messages, it means that things are staying consistent. This reading was about my life’s journey, a road map to my life’s plan. I received information about:
the future endeavors of my family members that I am closely connected to;
about my relationship with my husband; and
about my chosen career.
I did ask Brough about certain people who had recently passed. He told me that “Anne” comes around my family, especially my husband (they were good friends), and likes to move coins, dimes in particular (I have found dimes in various family shared rooms).
Also, I asked about numbers, the times on a clock. Brough told me that my grandfather and “Archie” like to show me double digit times on a clock like “11:11” (Archie was a good friend of my husband’s who fought in WWII); it is done just to catch my attention to tell me that I’m on the right path.
Again, my experience was fun, entertaining, personable, and thought provoking!
If you are wondering why, what, or how things are about your life, Brough has the ability to shine light on these personal mysteries.
