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, 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.


About Bernette

bernette-webBernette is a natural medium, channel, clair, intuitive coach and guide as well as a healer and attachment release therapist.

Bernette’s Background and Education 

I was re-awakened my ability to communicate with spirit and channel energy (used in message and healing work) when at Plymouth Spiritualist Church in Rochester, NY in 2007 when I was pointed out by a guest medium who said I was clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient. I was certain she was speaking to someone else and just nodded. The next morning the gifts I’d pushed down and covered up as a child had risen up and I could feel the presence of loved ones who’d passed on and were eager to talk. However, I was trying to sleep and told them they had to go away. I’d had a good connection with my guides and a strong sense of intuition growing up but this was different. I began giving messages to friends and family, and then online, and then finally began coming out of the closet when I began working with Decatur Healing Arts. I really came out when I began reading at the Inner Space’s Psychic Fairs.

I’ll be starting back reading at fairs in the summer of 2017, so check the events for where and when.

I have a Holistic Health Practitioner Certificate and earned my Bachelors in Spiritual Healing from Yogananda Institute (formerly Reiki Blessings Academy).  I have been a practicing Usui and Karuni Ki Reiki Master since 2009 and have my certifications in Chakra Therapy and Chakra Balancing.  In 2009 I became a Certified Professional Coach and in 2010 I became a Certified Marriage Educator.  In 2013 I completed her certification as a Book of Life Specialist/Akashic Records Reader.

I am also an ordained minister having studied with Metaphysical Universal Ministries and am ordained through the Interfaith Truth Center in Marietta, GA.

Prior to and while beginning my metaphysical practice, I spent more than a decade as a researcher and evaluator working for two large university systems in Atlanta and a national health care company doing program design, implementation, and evaluation.

I tend to use my gifts primarily to bring clarity, insight, and healing. I also strongly identify as a creative artist, primarily expressing through writing and music.

I hope that by serving in this capacity I can help bring healing to those on the other side and awareness, inspiration, and healing for wholeness to those living now.

I am also a creative artist and primarily express through my writing and music. Find out about Creative Core.
