About Us

Spirit Speaks and the channel on YouTube was inspired by Erik Medhus (Channeling Erik). Spirit Speaks began as a partnership between Bernette and Rebecca to bring a voice to those on the other side who wanted to speak through Bernette. Perhaps we were chosen because we are both healers who come from a line of healers and intuitives.

Through the Spirit Speaks channeling sessions with ancestors and those in the waiting place, those who come through may share information and personal experiences or come for healing that transcends time and space. We hope that those on this side will be open to experience healing of generational hurts, receive the information and insights shared, and be blessed.

How We Got Started

During a family visit between mother (Rebecca) and daughter (Bernette) one evening while Rebecca was watching an Erik Medhus inspired channeling show called the Shiny Show, Bernette sensed Erik’s presence. She told him she wasn’t interested and was too busy (she is busy!) but he wouldn’t take no for an answer. After encouragement from Rebecca and a little bargaining in the form of if you want me to do this, prove it, Bernette agreed to serve in this role, particularly for the disenfranchised and marginalized on the other side. Rebecca volunteered to serve as the interviewer and together through their partnership spirit speaks.

What Else Do We Do?

Healing (Energy/Reiki), Spirit Removal and Release (Healing Attachments), Mediumship, Coaching, Spiritual Guidance, Inspirational Speaking, and Writing. We also both sing and have been ordained ministers. You can find our services on our individual pages on this site.
