I'm Dr. Lenore Matthew.
I am a Doctor of Social Work and an expert in psychic awakenings and intuitive practices for healing through trauma and grief.
My own ability of psychic mediumship suddenly awoke when my late husband unexpectedly passed away.
I spent the better part of early grief skeptical and in denial (as a social worker, my technical specialization was in research and evidence-based practice). At many points, I asked myself, family, and friends, “Am I going 'crazy'?! Am I imagining this?!" But deep down, I knew these experiences were real — and were guiding me forward in a positive way.
Today, I blend my background as a researcher and social worker with my intuitive abilities and experience to help others find healing and light in an intuitive way.
My mission is to normalize psychic abilities and awakenings, and teach people how to connect to their loved ones on the Other Side as well as their innate psychic abilities. (We all have them!)
Connecting to the intuitive world helps us move forward. It brings clarity, peace, and insight beyond the confines of the analytical, thinking mind.
My Mediumistic Awakening
My ability of psychic mediumship opened up amidst unfathomable loss of a loved one.
In 2020, my late husband unexpectedly passed away. The night that he crossed, I began receiving visceral communications from him from the afterlife. I could see him. Feel him. Hear him. Interact with him, in real-time. I’d never had an experience like this before.
The communications continued. Not only was I thrust into the deepest pain I’ve ever known, I began receiving messages, signs, and insights from a dimension that I never understood, nor ever had a reason to believe existed. I spent the better part of early grief skeptical and in denial (I'm a Dr. of Social Work with a specialization in research and evidence-based practice).
At many points, I asked myself, family, and friends, “Am I going 'crazy'?!" But deep down, I knew these experiences were real — and were guiding me forward in a positive way.
So what did I do?
I leaned into my newfound abilities and my connection with my late husband and other loved ones on the Other Side!
Leaning in to the Experience —And Bringing in the Data
I knew I couldn’t be the only one experiencing this. And as I soon learned — I wasn’t.
I documented every communication, many of which I could later validate with objective information.
I talked openly about my experiences. I published articles and gave interviews on my late husband's messages, and how they shaped my grief and life after loss for the better.
I knew I couldn’t be the only one experiencing this… And I wasn’t. Soon, people began contacting me with their own stories of communication with loved ones who had passed.
I also began formally training in mediumship, to better understand myself and my experiences.
Eventually, I was led back to the world of research, interviewing other people who’ve had similar experiences. The crossovers in our experiences are uncanny. What’s more — we all are finding purpose, meaning, and even light and joy again by way of our loved ones’ guidance from the afterlife.
Connecting to the Other Side helps us move forward. It brings clarity, peace, and insight beyond the confines and constructs of the analytical, thinking mind.
My Work Today
Normalizing psychic abilities and awakenings. Bringing intuitive practices into traditional health and mental health spaces.
My work today focuses on normalizing psychic abilities and awakenings, and teaching people how to connect to their loved ones as well as develop their innate intuitive gifts (we all have them!). I do so through programs, workshops, and talks as well as original research conducted in my Research Lab.
Working with the intuitive and spirit world is transformative. It is profoundly healing. It yields insights beyond what the conscious, thinking mind can comprehend. It helps us heal. And it enriches our world.
The intuitive realms are available to us all — if we only allow ourselves to get curious.
