Welcome to my website.
My name is Barbara Bandel, and I started my psychic medium practice more than 25 years ago; how time flies when you are having fun!
I was born and raised in the Netherlands and I am a proud mother of two sons.
I've been invited numerous times on TV and radio to talk about this beautiful profession and give live psychic and audience readings.
I also wrote a book about various interesting psychic topics and about what's it like to be a psychic medium.
When I was young, I often read photos for my classmates. Seeing dead people and communicating with my spirit guides was normal to me.
I loved to spend time alone as a child and talk to my guides. Growing older, I decided to find a 'normal' job. I became a secretary for a couple of years, but it never really fulfilled me.
Giving psychic readings is my true passion. So I decided to help as many people as I could.
When I was young, I couldn't find information about (trance) mediumship, psychics, readings or how to develop psychic abilities. There were books here and there in the public library, but that was it.
In this day and age, we are privileged to live in an era of technological advancements that have completely revolutionized the way we experience the world around us. With the advent of the internet, we now have access to vast amounts of information and entertainment at our fingertips, with just a few clicks of a button. Moreover, we can now indulge in the mystical world of psychic television, podcasts and radio shows that have taken the world by storm, captivating audiences with their intriguing insights and predictions. It's almost as if we have entered a new dimension where anything is possible, and the boundaries of what we thought was once impossible have been shattered. The times truly have changed.
How do I work?
When I give a psychic reading, I don't want to know anything about you. You can ask all your questions later in the reading, but I always want to start.
I focus on your energy, and within a couple of seconds, your guides tell me about you and your life. I repeat what your team of spirit guides tell me.
Commonly, you don't even need to ask your questions because your guides will bring forward the subjects you have questions about. They know your questions and what you are dealing with.
They are with you every day, so they know your happiness, joy, worries and pain. They know you on a soul level. You already knew your leading guide before you were born.
They know what you want to learn in this lifetime, who you will meet, what you want to accomplish, and how you want to grow as human beings and souls.
Your main guide knows the shortest route to all of this. Your guides know your past, present and future. So the advice I receive for you is tailor-made. It's not standard advice, suited for anyone.
Your guides know how to get you where you want to go. And that route is different for every single person. You can ask any question you wish to; there are no weird or stupid questions.
When I give a psychic medium reading, I don't want the information coming from different directions or different spirits.
I open myself up, and I find it very important to feel safe and know that the information comes from the purest and highest source.
I don't want any uninvited spirits giving me information that may not be correct. So a long time ago, I agreed with my main spirit guide, his name is Ben, that he is my 'filter' at all times.
'If you knew who walked beside you at all times,
you could never experience doubt or fear again' - Wayne Dyer
All the information first goes to Ben, and he filters it and passes it on to me. That way, I know that the information I hear, feel and see is coming from the highest possible source.
So when I give a reading to you, your spirit guides work together with Ben. If a deceased loved one talks to me, I know that Ben gave an O.K. to them to talk to me directly.
I'm a believer in perfect timing and synchronicity. Everything in our lives will come when all the components are precisely where they need to be.
I can look pretty far into the future, like ten-twenty years ahead. For us humans, one year sounds and feels like a long time. One year is like turning a page for our guides and the Universe.
I also find that it's essential to take good care of myself, mentally and physically. I listen to my body, and I work during hours when my ability to concentrate is at its best.
It's not only that I have to focus, but I also have to change my brainwave cycle.
I don't exist when I give a reading. I mean that my personal view on life, subjective opinion, ego, and the way I look at specific subjects don't exist.
You want a reading coming from the highest source possible, not a reading where I give you my personal opinion.
'Before you are born, you decide what you
want to learn in this lifetime'
One of the things I love about giving online psychic readings is that I can tell you who you are. You don't have a soul; you ARE a soul. I love to help you remember who you really are and why you chose to be born again.
Before you are born, you decide what you want to learn in this lifetime. You chose your parents, profession, soul purpose, and where you want to live.
You chose the color of your skin, the shape of your body, who you will meet, when and where, etc. Soulmates agree to meet each other again.
And then you are born, and you forget everything you knew so that you can begin this new life with a clean slate.
As if you've never lived before. But no information is lost. It's still inside of you. You can find all that information when you connect with your heart.
You can't click when you are in your mind, your thinking. Meditating is a great way to connect with your heart.
Everything you did, every emotion you ever had, everywhere you lived and everyone you've met in every lifetime is stored in your soul.
That's why some people you meet can feel so familiar to you. Like you already know them. You do.
Some people, places or countries feel like coming home to you. It can happen when you go to a city or country you've never been before; you feel like you know exactly where to go.
You have been there before in a previous lifetime. That's why some talents are so easy for you like you already did this your entire lifetime.
You did but in previous lifetimes.
I look forward talking to you.
