Frequently Asked Questions
For decades Annie Larson has been offering clients unique intuitive and mediumship experiences.
As part of my ongoing commitment to provide clients with exceptional service, I have listed my most frequently asked questions below. After reading it, if you still have something on your mind, please get in touch.
HOW LONG AND HOW MUCH IS A SESSION?
All sessions list the type of session and how long the session will be as each session varies in price. Mediumship is only offered in a longer "Extended" session. Need more time with me? Feel free to book back to back sessions with me.
MAY I BRING A FRIEND OR RELATIVE TO THE SESSION?
Unless otherwise noted, all sessions are for one-on-one. If there is more than one person, you must book sessions for all participants that are 18 years or older. I don't allow spectators as spirit can come in for them and you might not connect with your loved ones (I have had this happen). During phone sessions, I can pick up information for other people in the room. It is best that you make sure that you are alone to make sure you have the best experience. Your session is for you and about you. I will not tap in to anyone (significant others, children, friends, relatives, etc.) other than you.
CAN I BOOK A GROUP SESSION?
Yes, but I no longer get involved in organizing group sessions. One person must plan and pay (in a lump sum) for the group session at least 2 weeks before the session is to begin. I charge a fee for 2 hours of my time at my current going hourly rate and allow up to 6 participants. You must be within 15 minutes driving time (non-rush hour) of my office. More than 15 minutes will add additional fees (based on my hourly rate) for driving time. Sessions for Friday or Saturday are charged a premium of an extra hour at my current hourly rate for a 2 hour session. All participants are not guaranteed a reading, nor is mediumship guaranteed. All participants must be 18 years or older.
I DON'T WANT TO BOOK ONLINE, CAN I BOOK DIRECTLY WITH YOU?
Booking your session online is the only way you can book a session with me. This is how you secure your time with me and receive the two automated emails (one a confirmation of your booking with date and time and then a reminder the day before). If using Zelle, see next paragraph to do this.
CAN I PAY ANOTHER WAY ASIDE FROM CREDIT CARD?
Yes. I do take VENMO AND ZELLE that you can use and send money directly from your mobile bank app. It is not integrated into my website so it will have to be paid out separately to book your session. To do this find a date and time that's open on my schedule, and contact me with the subject line "VENMO" or "ZELLE." You will be instructed where to send the session amount through Venmo or Zelle to me. After payment is received, you will then be put on my schedule. Please note that my schedule fills up quickly and a delay in payment may make a change to your date and time. Otherwise, booking a session with me requires a credit card payment through my automated secure payment methods.
HOW DO I PAY WITH MY GIFT CARD?
If you are having trouble applying your gift card, please email me through my contact page. Please include a date and time from my schedule that you wish to book. The app that I use for gift cards sometimes doesn't recognize the gift card numbers but I keep detailed records of all purchases. I will manually apply the gift card and set you up on my schedule.
DO I CALL YOU, OR DO YOU CALL ME FOR A PHONE SESSION?
I call you at your appointed time for a phone session and I do so from a private blocked number. Be sure to set your phone to allow blocked, private or unknown numbers before our session. How to do this will depend on your telephone or mobile provider. Please do a search on your telephone/mobile provider and login to your account to unblock restricted, unavailable, and private numbers or to turn off anonymous call rejection. I cannot go over your allotted time in trying to reach you. Please, be proactive!
I WANT TO HEAR FROM JUST ONE PARTICULAR PERSON IN SPIRIT. CAN YOU GUARANTEE THIS?
No. Spirit always shows up, but I don't get to choose who. (If you only want one person and no one else will do, please don't book with me.) Mediums, regardless of talent, are not in control of the spirit realm.
I'VE HAD UNSUCCESSFUL READINGS BY REPUTABLE MEDIUMS. CAN YOU HELP ME?
A reputable medium with many positive reviews, and years of experience, has earned his or her recognition to be able to successfully connect with spirit. If you have had several disappointing experiences with reputable mediums, take a pause in booking with me or any another medium. It may not be your time. Trying to keep your loved one alive with too frequent readings, expecting them to predict the outcome of difficult circumstances, or waiting for them to tell you what to do next with your life are signs for you to take a moment.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A SESSION?
The best way to prepare is to have an open heart to the experience. If you are hoping to connect with a loved one in spirit then set that intention and ask your loved one to show up at our appointed time (remember that there are no guarantees). For an intuitive session have questions written down that you seek guidance to take full advantage of your time. Leave all anticipated answers, ideas, and expectations at the door. Allow spirit and the flow of information to be shared as it is given and revealed.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A INTUITIVE READING AND A MEDIUMSHIP READING?
An intuitive reading will offer guidance, direction and clarity to your unanswered questions. A mediumship reading will include connecting you with a loved one in spirit with detailed evidence, memories and communication. Mediumship takes more time to unfold, as such, you must book a longer "Extended" session.
MAY I BOOK A SESSION FOR A DATE AND TIME THAT ARE NOT ON YOUR ONLINE BOOKING SCHEDULE?
Currently, all of my available time is on my online booking schedule.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN IN PERSON SESSION AND A PHONE SESSION?
My being able to connect with spirit has nothing to do with being present with you. I have always done phone sessions which I actually prefer to do for many reasons. I think they are a more "pure" reading.
DO YOU OFFER SKYPE/ZOOM OR FACETIME FOR SESSIONS?
No. Spirit only has so much energy for me to connect and share and, as such, I don't like technology getting in the way. I use a land line with perfect reception.
WHEN WILL YOU RESUME IN PERSON SESSIONS?
I have resumed in person sessions as of May, 2023. You may book directly with me on my website for those sessions offered in person.
AM I ABLE TO ASK QUESTIONS?
Yes, Please be ready with questions! I encourage it. This is your chance to get guidance and clarity.
AM I ABLE TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE?
No. While I get a sense of people around you, I will not tap into anyone who has not booked with me and given me permission. With this in mind, please don't ask how your children are doing in school or your spouse at work. I will not tap into anyone other than you.
CAN I BOOK A SESSION FOR SOMEONE UNDER 18 YEARS OLD?
No. I will only read for those who have reached the maturity and age of consent. Since I believe it is important to understand your birth chart and karma, the only exception I make for minors, who are at least 12 years old, is for astrology charts where a parent gives consent and is present during the session.
MAY I HAVE A PURELY INTUITIVE READING ABOUT THINGS GOING ON IN MY LIFE?
Yes. I am happy to have you bring all the issues you would like to have clarity and direction.
ARE YOU ABLE TO TELL MY FUTURE?
I get a sense of things and the energy around you. I am not a fortune teller as I believe you have free will to change anything.
WHAT DOES BEING CERTIFIED MEAN?
Being certified means that I have studied with a school or expert and then passed a test to achieve certification. I am tested, vetted, and certified:
Medium & Psychic
Usui Reiki Master Teacher (Usui Ryoho and Usui Shiki Ryoho)
Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance) E-RYT® 500, YACEP®, Yoga Nidra
Past-Life Regression Therapist (Dr. Brian Weiss)
Master Life Coach
Emotional Freedom Technique (Nick Ortner)
I THINK I HAVE ABILITIES. CAN YOU HELP?
Yes. I can help you develop your abilities with my many classes and workshops. I am not able to answer your individual emails and phone calls about what is going on with you, as I receive too many to do this. If you are looking for help and guidance, booking a session with me is the best way to begin your journey.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU?
After reading through my FAQs, if you still have specific questions about my services, you are welcome to send an email through my contact page, but understand the massive volume of inquires I receive. If you have a complicated situation or long inquiry, please book a session.
I FEEL SOMEONE OR SOMETHING IS IN MY HOME. CAN YOU HELP?
Yes! I get a sense of "things" and spirit around me and around you. I don't have to physically be in a home to sense what's going on in a place. I do a lot of home visits when there is activity that the homeowners want to understand.
I AM A BIT AFRAID. HOW DO I PROTECT MYSELF?
I believe that if you walk in light, you need not be afraid nor need protection.
I THINK I AM POSSESSED BY AN EVIL SPIRIT OR ENTITY. CAN YOU HELP?
No. This belief is not in alignment with what I know of spirit.
I THINK I AM CURSED OR HAVE A SPELL ON ME. CAN YOU HELP?
No. I do not remove curses or spells. Anyone telling you they can do this for a certain amount of money is trying to scam you. I will not ask you for money under any circumstances above and beyond your session.
I PLAN TO CALL OR EMAIL YOU TO SEE IF I CAN GET FREE ADVICE OR ASK A QUESTION OR TWO FOR FREE. WILL YOU DO THIS?
No. I receive numerous daily inquiries asking me for free advice and counsel and I am simply overwhelmed. I believe when you are ready to receive you will do so in a manner that will honor spirit and you. Readings are a process, or an unfolding as we like to say in mediumship. They take time, energy, and effort. With time constraints on my schedule to serve clients, I am unable to accommodate these requests.
