Maria Halvorsen is a renowned Spiritual Medium and Psychic who works with clients in the U.S. and abroad. A practicing medium for 18 years, Maria is passionate about demystifying the process of mediumship in order to bring others peace, knowledge and a sense of comfort about the Spirit world.
Prior to beginning her full-time work as a medium, Maria had a busy professional career as COO of a Boston-based non-profit organization. She also has more than 15 years of experience in sales development and marketing in the computer industry where she implemented computer training programs for Fortune 500 companies.
“Communicate with Spirit” was not on Maria’s to-do list 20 years ago when she received a message from a medium at a Spiritualist Church – a day that changed her life forever. The medium brought through the spirit of Jodi – a dear friend of Maria’s family who was only 12 years old when she died tragically on an Easter Sunday nearly 25 years ago. The loving, gentle message that Maria received from Jodi left no doubt in her mind that her friend’s Spirit continues to “live.” The experience opened Maria’s heart to the fact that there is more to life than the human eye can perceive.
Maria began taking meditation classes for relaxation at the Spiritualist Church with no intention of becoming a medium. Spirit, however, had different things in store for her. Through Maria’s meditation classes, the Spirit communication door swung wide open – a turn of events for which she was unprepared, but which she embraced. Maria became determined to learn as much as possible about spirit communication to achieve understanding and mastery of the process.
Maria was a long-time member of the Swampscott Church of Spiritualism (SCOS) in Massachusetts. She served two three-year terms as President of the Board of Trustees and chaired the Education Committee. She received her certification in Mediumship in the fall of 2004. In addition to her past work with the SCOS, Maria served with several Spiritualist Churches throughout New England, including Camp Etna, one of the oldest Spiritualists camps in the United States.
Maria’s insights give audiences an understanding of how loved ones continue to live and evolve in the Spirit World, as she shares her belief that we all transition into a world of love and compassion. She has a rare ability to connect with Spirit, bringing through not only evidential messages, but also describing clients’ loved ones as they appear to her, including such things as physical features, specific clothing, personalities, ailments and cause of death.
Committed to working with the highest level of integrity, Maria believes that one of the most important aspects of Spirit Communication is sharing her understanding of the Spirit world in order to bring healing and love to those who are also on their spiritual journey. Maria offers one-day workshops designed to help fine-tune each attendee’s intuition. In addition to holding public events, Maria offers mediumship development classes and mentors students privately.
