I Am a Christian… And I am a Medium by Troy Griffin

On March 12, 2016 I awoke to an email in my inbox alerting me to an article in the society column of Christian Today authored by journalist, Czarina Ong. In the article, Ong, warns the Christian community that belief in spirit and consulting with a medium like myself violates bible scripture, and therefore could not be Christian. In fact, she refers to me, specifically, stating, “[Troy] Griffin argues that his ‘psychic calling’ is a gift from God.’”
My offer to grant Christian Today an interview to share my point of view on my gifts was not acknowledged by the publication or by its writer. Though they declined my offer to grant them an interview, they did choose to interview Jennifer LeClaire of Jennifer LeClaire Ministries (jenniferleclaire.org), who warns the article’s readers that my spiritual work is a “tragic deception” to Christians. While I was disappointed in Ong’s narrowly sourced and strongly one-sided journalistic rhetoric, I was hardly surprised. Why? Because I understand it; I grew up around it.
Married into a devout Christian family, I have spent most of my life devoted to my faith and my church community, and I hold my religious values dear. In fact, I am proud to say that I have religious leaders as members of my own family whom I love and respect.
Here’s the rub; I was born with an innate ability to receive communication from spirit and through my clairvoyant (simply translated to: one who see clearly) abilities and empathic intuitiveness. I am able to receive messages that are not my own, but channeled through a higher source. You can imagine my own internal struggle when a young Troy Griffin who faithfully studied the bible as a child was able to make these spiritual connections that on the surface are professed to be anti-Christian and anti-scripture. What was I to do?
Because of what I had been taught as a child and out of fear of being ostracized by my community, I remained “in the closet” so-to-speak, for thirty years. I only confided my abilities to a few trusted members of my inner circle.
As a believer in God, I had spent over 30 years of my life sequestering my thoughts, feelings, insights, and gifts from much of my family and others as I was unsure of my spiritual and personal beliefs regarding what is “right” and “wrong,” “good” and “bad,” according to biblical scripture.
The Turning Point
If you ask many mediums or those with extra-sensory gifts, they will admit to an initial internal struggle before coming to terms with and embracing such gifts. In my case the turning point was when one day I had a profound question asked of me. “Are you intuitive?” Oddly, it was asked by a person I had just met five minutes earlier. I was not sure why in that moment I chose to share with this stranger, but I instinctively answered “Yes.”
Given my response, I was provided with a name and city of a missing person. I was then asked if I picked up on anything regarding this particular case that was just shared with me only moments ago. I took a few minutes to think about what I felt, saw and thought about this case. Once I began speaking, I was informed that I was accurate with the details of the case that listed on the police report. In further conversation, I felt that the missing person was a victim of homicide. I continued to provide information on where I thought the body might be located. Again, with a high accuracy rate and giving information on the general area, this person was located and was, in fact, deceased. The case was ruled a homicide.
Was this a gift of divination or a gift from God? Whatever the source, it had allowed me to help someone and their family with answers towards their path of moving forward with justice for the victim. After this experience I did a lot of soul searching and looking for answers. I often asked, “Why me?” Why was I able to do this? How did I know this information and does this fit into my religious belief system and into the greater fabric of society?
I realized that this unique ability has to be a gift from God and I needed to accept and use my gifts to help others. I accepted that others in my family, in my religious community and in much of society would not approve or be accepting of me using these gifts. What I realized within myself is that my intuition is part of whom God made me and this is my personal journey and walk in this lifetime.
I have subsequently done work around the world, consulting on more than 100 missing person cases, and providing peace and closure to countless individuals through private readings. I believe that in our unknown times, if helping others with moving forward or gaining closure on life events is a sin, then I am a sinner. I will have to answer to God on departure from this psychical world and I’m alright with that.
As I continue my journey as a Christian believer and an Intuitive Consultant, I will continue to assist others who ask for my help in searching for answers, moving forward, and investigating unsolved crimes. This is my calling; my calling from Go
In the Christian Today article mentioned above, writer Czarina Ong goes on to cite a bible passage from the book of Deuteronomy 18:9-13 stating that it is an “abomination to the Lord” for any person to use “divination, or use witchcraft,” or become “an interpreter of omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts spells, or a spiritualist, or an occultist, or a necromancer.” This is just one of many verses in the Old Testament that are used for justification and validation on why being an intuitive (psychic) is wrong.
I have yet to ever be interviewed by a writer, reporter, or spiritual leader on why I believe my gifts are from God and why I feel as though I use them for a greater purpose than myself. My purpose – helping people move forward in life and find closure with life changing events. In fact, more than ninety percent of my readings incorporate God and His word.
In the new testament, 1 Corinthians 12:14, it states, “All of gifts of spirits come from the Holy Spirit. 4There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
7Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.”
As in the Old Testament, this is just one of several passages related to such gifts.

Be Your Best Self Today & Everyday - Psychic Consultants Online Blog

As we evaluate our lives, why do we place so much pressure on ourselves to be a certain way? Why not just be happy with the way you are? Maybe society’s unrealistic standards and judgement from others influences you to be a certain way. Instead of trying to change ourselves, focus on being content with how you already are. Be present and grateful for yourself today.

I recently read an article, Letting Go of Perfection & Learning to Live, where the author describes her personal journey of attempting to be perfect in all aspects of her life. She quickly discovered that this way of life could not be sustained and was unhealthy for her and her daughter. In her new outlook on life which involves letting go of the things you cannot control, she summarizes “If we are lucky, we die long into our life having amassed an army of imperfections. We need to embrace those imperfections because they are simply gifts disguised.”

Occasionally, we must overlook our flaws and weaknesses, and concentrate on what makes us who we are. After all, our individual identities are what make us each kind of fantastic in our own unique ways. We all face challenges throughout our lives which may force us to make decisions that others do not agree with. It’s your life and you are likely making a decision that best suits your individual needs at the time. We must let go of judgement and trying to please everybody else. No one is perfect!

You must be happy for yourself first before you can extend that same happiness to others. It may seem selfish, but your own joy must always be your first priority. It is essential for our wellbeing that we make a conscious effort to remove any expectations of how we should be. I’m not implying that happiness is something that we can attain all the time. It may be a daily struggle but after practicing this mindset, it can be accomplished more easily.

If you find yourself surrounded by doubt and self-criticism, do your best to remove that negative energy with positive thoughts. Be mindful and appreciative of everything that brings satisfaction to your life. Reflect on your accomplishments and achievements. Know that you wouldn’t be where you are today without strength and determination. 

All the best,

Set Your Intention this New Year - Blog

As we begin the New Year, many of us reflect on the past year and prepare for the upcoming year. For some of us, this can be a tedious and daunting process. It can be emotional for others who look back on those they have lost, challenges they have faced, and overall changes that have unfolded. It is critical to always stay grounded by setting a daily intention. This will ensure that you do not lose sight of what is truly important.

Setting an intention can be as simple as stepping back and slowing down during our chaotic daily routines. It may be taking time for yourself each day. This may involve setting aside time for a moment of meditation, reading, journaling, yoga, or exercise. Any activity that allows you to relax and reflect will foster your daily intention. Maybe your intention is to be more open to new ideas or to find joy in the little things, whatever it may be, make sure to foster your intention with anything that nourishes your soul.

Are you struggling to find your intention? A great article that I stumbled upon discusses writing a “To-Be list—with no stress or judgement involved… focusing on peace and slowing down.” Maybe you can reflect on these ideal qualities during a time of relaxation. Rather than holding yourself accountable for unattainable, unrealistic goals, set an intention or list of characteristics that you want to practice on a daily basis.

Be proactive with your intentions and “To-Be List”. At Psychic Consultants Online, we have several experienced consultants who will help you get back on the right path towards joy and abundance.  Our intuitive consultants can assist and guide you by helping you manifest your desired outcomes. Do you seek changes in your life regarding: love, relationships, career, or finances?  If so, allow our gifted psychic consultants to provide you with clarity, wisdom and healing.


With our assistance, you can practice your daily intentions. Discover how our psychic experts can be the tools to your success. As an added incentive, we offer your first three minutes free if you are a new client. What are you waiting for? The only thing holding you back is you. Make the choice today to start living a more mindful life. 

All the best,
