Come play with the spirits at the Kent Stage Ghost Hunt and Meet the Medium at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Kent Stage, 175 E. Main St.
Angel reader and psychic medium Laura Lyn will be answering questions and bringing messages from your spirit guides and loved ones.
"Basically what I do is a tap into what's going on with a person regarding their life path," Lyn said. "But my main function seems to be, what people are really interested in, is they love to hear about the spirits around them."
When Lyn was 5 years old, she had her first encounter with an angel.
"I saw her in the corner of my bedroom and she spoke with me and said that my grandfather was going to have to go away and he passed a couple weeks after that. Then I started seeing guides, or I didn't know they were guides, I just thought of them as my friends, but they are Native Americans."
Lyn gave her first reading when she was 17. The process goes something like this:
"I start just looking at the core of what's going on at the persons center that could be regarding their inner self emotionally," Lyn said. "Then I look at the foundation as far as their home and work and then I tap into looking at what their vision is, what they are seeing their potential to be, and then I round it out looking from the spirits perspective of what their highest potentials can be regarding their gifts."
At the end of the day, Lyn's goal with her readings is to help people feel comfortable.
"I want to help people to feel comfortable where they are at and help them realize that they are not stuck," Lyn said. "That there is always an answer, there is always a new beginning."
There are many benefits to getting a reading done with Lyn.
"A lot of the times they are getting information about their own life, but I think the main benefit is they can feel the spirit around them during the reading," Lyn said. "And that way they can walk away knowing they are not alone and that is a very powerful place for people to be. It really helps the person feel confident that they can move forward in their life path."
Lyn met Tom Simpson, co-owner of The Kent Stage, several years ago when she randomly stopped in to channel spirits.
"I explained to them I'm a medium," Lyn said. "I had some dowsing roads and I was dying to tap into the spirits. They were kind of chuckling and rolling their eyes at me, especially Tom, and he said, 'Come on show us where the spirits are.' I took the rods and pointed them over by the stage and I went over there and started talking to what I perceived as a spirit and explained what I was capturing. They were kind of looking at each other like, 'Woah, this is real.'"
Lyn called the Kent Stage the craziest, coolest haunted building in Portage County.
"It's off the hook," Lyn said. "I had goose bumps. I know I was tapping into two spirits, but there were definitely more playing with me and running around."
S.I.G.H.T of Ohio will also be on hand to lead a ghost hunt in the theater and tunnels.
Simpson admits that after his encounters with Lyn, he has become a believer. He said he expects a full house at Saturday's Ghost Hunt.
