I recently gave a reading to a new client and afterward, she sent me an email:

Hi Susan,
I have a question for you.  When you do your readings, you often call on people who have passed on.  During my reading no one who has passed on in my family gave any messages.  Should I take this personally?  Is there a reason why they wouldn’t be interested in talking with me?
Thanks and thank you again for the reading.–A.

Hi, A.–

Great question, and I’m glad you asked.  I didn’t go into the reasons that we don’t hear from those on the Other Side, but there are several.  Oftentimes, the client (you) is already in touch with those she was closest to, and she doesn’t need me to intervene.  Sometimes, the client is too young to have lost anyone, or the client simply isn’t very interested (this one doesn’t always make any difference).  And then sometimes, the spirits just aren’t in the mood.  Or you’re not supposed to get that particular experience through this particular medium.

It’s definitely not something to take personally.  Next time, I can try to call up your loved ones on the Cosmic Phone, if you like.

Oh, and I also feel that what you got yesterday was what was important for you at this time.

I hope that answers your question.  Thank you again for getting a reading.  I look forward to next time!
