Interview: Shira Benedetto opens up about being a psychic medium (Includes interview)

She first discovered her gift in late 2012. “That was when I realized that I had something going on,” she said.

Each day, she is motivated by her natural drive, passion for life and a passion for helping other people. “Everything comes full circle, so I am able to help individuals and make them feel gratified,” she said, prior to noting that she also receives support from her loving husband.

Benedetto has been nominated twice for “Best Psychic” as part of “Best of Long Island Press.” That was awesome. I have been nominated for two years running so far, and I feel privileged to be a part of that grouping, since I am with a team of some really gifted psychic mediums,” she said.

On June 30, Benedetto will be teaching a psychic mediumship development course, which is an eight-week intensive class. “Basically, I help people wake up to their abilities quickly and effectively,” she said.

She continued, “I also do reconnective energy work. This works to restore balance within your body. It works with light, energy and information. It is a stream of energy that works through you.”

Most recently, she did the Bethany House Fundraiser, which was fantastic for Benedetto. “That is an organization that helps homeless women and children, who are in really terrible situations, where they have to leave almost without warning, and they put them in safer homes. We just did a psychic medium fundraiser for them and they raised over $14,000. Senator Kaminsky came down as well to support,” she said.

“I love social media,” she said, in an effort to stay connected with her followers and fans. “I get connected on Facebook, Twitter and on Instagram as well.”

She defined the word success as “Happiness, health, love and harmony with everyone.”
