Author Biography

I was born and raised in the Netherlands and am a mother of two sons. This book was taken from the idea that I wanted to leave something behind for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I want them to be able to read who I was long after I have transitioned to "the other side." 

I know so little about my grandparents and nothing about my great-grandparents. It is a pity that I don't know who they were or how they experienced their lives. Did they have dreams and wishes, were any fulfilled? 

So I started to write about my life and work as a psychic medium. While writing, all the memories and remarkable stories came back to me. 

Memories of all the readings I have given and all the wonderful people I have met. I have given more than 10.000 readings over the last thirty years.

What initially started as a "book" for my great-grandchildren became a book I wanted to publish. When Covid came, I had more time to write. It is now November '22, and I finished and published my book. 

I loved this whole process of writing and creating together with my spirit guides. They added valuable information. 

I am grateful for working together with my spirit guides. Unbelievable how patient they are with everyone, including me! I am thankful for my life and all the readings I have given, and I look forward to the psychic readings I will give in the future.

With love,

My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories is a work of non-fiction in the spiritual and memoir subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Barbara Bandel. As the title suggests, this is a fascinating insight into the life of the spiritually gifted author who works alongside spirit guides to help others in need of mediumship. The work contains many interesting stories about how Bandel discovered her gifts early on in life, and it also offers a practical series of exercises and meditations to help others deepen their awareness of the spiritual world that surrounds them.

Switching off from the bustle of the modern world can be a very difficult thing indeed when we’re facing constant stimulation from the media and stress from many sources. Books like these help you to remember that love, peace, and harmony should be at the core of what we strive for every day. I loved all the different aspects of author Barbara Bandel’s work, from her perspective on spiritualism, life, death, love, and trust that she offers, through well-penned anecdotes and her gentle, friendly narration, to the well-organized advice she offers as a mentor to anyone seeking more opportunities for meditation and rumination on their extrasensory perceptions. Fans of mediumship are sure to enjoy the variety of her stories and experiences, but what impressed me very deeply was the genuine desire to help and comfort others. Overall, I found My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories to be a highly engaging, motivational, and enriching read, and I would highly recommend it.

My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories by Barbara Bandel will appeal to a diverse audience of young adults and adults with an interest in psychics, spirits, and personal awareness. The author shares her experiences related to spirits and people who have come to her for a reading and her methods for expanding personal awareness through mediation. Are you ready to share the author’s interactions with spirits like a 9/11 firefighter looking to pass on messages to his family and to learn how to deepen your understanding of yourself in terms of your purpose on Earth?

My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories by Barbara Bandel was well-written and it is the first book I have ever read about a real-life psychic. It helped me to understand what a psychic does and the profound experiences they can have from their contact with spirits. Whilst I enjoyed reading about the different spirits, it was the 9/11 firefighter spirit that really touched me the most; like the author, I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when the awful event took place.

In addition to finding the author’s encounters interesting, I also found her lessons on mediation to be both informative and understandable. I have tried mediation before without much success, but I felt the author was able to give me a much better grounding on mediation than I have ever had before and this awakened a desire in me to try it again. Overall, I found this book to be a worthwhile read that left me hoping the author will write another book, sharing more of her history with spirits.

My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories by Barbara Bandel is a non-fiction memoir and guide in which Bandel shares her experiences as a psychic medium. The book includes exercises and meditations to expand and deepen your awareness. Bandel begins with a brief introduction covering the backstory, her spirit guide, and her work. She then transitions into a wide range of her experiences, from communicating with the deceased son of a dear friend who had taken his own life to her first encounters with photographs that trigger sight and intense energy at the age of seven. This is followed by a transcendental journey while under an anesthetic for surgery that put Bandel in touch with the family of the nurse holding her hand.

As someone who is not a psychic medium but is fascinated by the gift, My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories intrigued me from the beginning. This is usually where the appeal ends because there is a massive difference between talking about experiences and writing about them in an engrossing way. Barbara Bandel is not only a psychic with some incredible stories to share, but she is also a talented author who can convey her experiences engagingly. I loved the meditation techniques but admit that I have not yet dared to try them. When I am ready, Bandel's guidance is where I will start. This is a beautiful tribute to all those Bandel has made contact with and for, and a wonderful piece of literature for those of us who want to read, listen and absorb. Highly recommended.

The author writes about her clients, while maintaining their privacy, and discusses the shared spiritual experiences that transpired. Along with her spirit guide who she refers to as “Ben”, Bandel provides insight, as well as exercises for the reader to follow.

Anyone who has lost someone dear to them would benefit from reading this book. Even pet owners could gain peace after their beloved pet has crossed the rainbow bridge, as Barbara Bandel describes her interaction with deceased humans and animals. Many grieving persons could find comfort in her narrative in which she points out signs that a loved one is near. Many individuals did not recognize these signs or symbols, but they now understand that their treasured friends and family are still around them.

The theme of the book is peace and inner understanding, and that resonates in every word. The stories will appeal to readers who embrace the spiritual realm. The author and “Ben” guide readers through a series of exercises than can help expand their awareness. Bandel’s words will remain with the reader long after the book is finished and may inspire them to search for a deeper understanding of themselves. My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories would be a suitable gift for anyone who has lost somebody dear to them, for as long as the reader has an open mind the stories in the book will provide comfort.
