Connecting With A Higher Source

As a young girl, Norma Simon realised she had a special gift and a connection with God. As the years went by she learned how to embrace this gift instead of fearing it. By combining her profound understanding of the spiritual world and her compassion for fellow human beings, Norma sees her vocation as a chance to help others on their journey to acceptance and understanding.


When did you become aware of receiving messages?

Norma: From about the age of five, I was very aware of wanting to be as close to God as I could get and loved sitting in a tree feeling like I was closer. I was aware of everyone's energy but could only feel it as being nice or not nice. At seventeen, I was more open to connecting with Source, God, whoever that powerful Energy is. I became aware hearing messages, not in the sense of a voice in my ear but more as being in my consciousness.

I have heard you consult your Spiritual Team before or during readings and meditations. Can you elaborate on this?

Norma: I am not able to receive visions and messages without praying and meditating daily. I connect with Universal Energy each time and ask that my Spiritual Guides teach me and support me in passing on the information from Light to be of service to God, that I do my job to the best of my ability in Truth.


How would you describe God in terms of spirituality?

Norma: I have always felt that man has created Religion and yet we all come from the same Source, be that God, Jesus, Allah, Buddha or Archangels. I therefore take and learn whatever resonates for me from all religions to use my Gift to the best of my ability. I realize how similar our religious beliefs and practices are and try and embrace all and if we focused on our connectedness and not our differences, it would create a very different and loving world.



“...I believe that the supernatural is quite normal to children especially and it is only our fear as we disconnect from God / Source / Universe that we create a perceived reality based on fear...” - Norma Simon, Psychic Medium.


People often view readings as 'telling the future', however from what I understand it also serves more of an understanding of self?

Norma: I do not view my work as telling the future but more of Spiritual Counseling. We all have free will and choice and I can guide an individual in a direction but ultimately cannot control an outcome.


Apart from Hollywood horror movies engineered to frighten us, why do you think are people so afraid of anything supernatural - especially in the dark?

Norma: I believe that the supernatural is quite normal to children especially and it is only our fear as we disconnect from God / Source / Universe that we create a perceived reality based on fear. Connecting to Souls that have passed is so comforting for the individual that seeks closure and often just need the reassurance that a loved one is at peace. Souls often just need to be reminded to go back to God/Source/Love if they are disturbing an individual, but do not want to harm us in any way.
