Tapping into the sixth sense with Tyler Henry

Tapping into the sixth sense with Tyler Henry

Have you ever wondered what happens to our loved ones when they cross over to the other side? You have probably heard of Theresa Caputo, more commonly known as the “Long Island Medium,” but Tyler Henry is another medium on the rise who is helping to give closure to individuals who are struggling with the loss of a loved one.

Henry has publicly shared his story of how he knew he had to say goodbye to his grandmother moments before she died. Henry claims he had a strong intuitive feeling that he had to check on her, and this was one of the moments that helped him realize that he had a gift. 

Henry is most known for his television show on E! called “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry,” where he reads celebrities and provides them with messages from their loved ones. Henry does not know who he will be reading prior to the session, and says that every reading is unique in that sense. On the way to a reading, Henry explains that messages from loved ones usually start to pop up before he even knows who he is reading, adding to the element of surprise. Henry says that he works as a clairvoyant, meaning he sees pictures and symbols in his head and pieces them together to create coherent messages to relay to the client. 

Henry is able to channel out the outside world and his personal bias by scribbling on a piece of paper, which he uses to provide his full attention to the clients and the messages being communicated. Henry demonstrates extreme care and comfort to his clients as he understands the sensitivity around losing a loved one and the grief and guilt that can follow that experience for many people. Henry has read Hollywood stars including Bella Thorne, Tiffany Haddish, Tori Spelling and Jodie Sweetin.

Henry can also provide clients with information on their susceptibility to different medical conditions and offer advice to navigate their romantic relationships if they desire. His television show will be back for its third season, which premiered on Feb. 28. 

Henry is also in the process of writing his next book after the success of his memoir, titled “Between Two Worlds: Lessons from the Other Side.” His book takes the reader on a journey through his life as a medium and answers the most commonly asked questions people have about his gift to connect with people on the other side.

Henry is scheduled to make live appearances across the country within the next few months. At the live shows, audiences can expect to hear insider information about how Henry is able to communicate with the departed and even get a reading from Henry himself if they are seated close to the front. One of the shows is going to be near Hofstra, at the NYCB Theatre in Westbury on June 6. To find out where you can buy tickets, you can check out Henry on Twitter at @tyhenrymedium.
