Meet Medium Hollister Rand of Valley Village

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hollister Rand.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
For as long I as can remember, I saw spirits. What a surprise to learn that not everyone else could! As a child, I didn’t want to be different, so I pushed the spirits away in order to live a “normal” life.

Well, a normal life wasn’t in store for me. At age 18, I was in a near fatal car crash. While recovering from severe head trauma and other physical damage, I could no longer ignore the spirits. It was as though a door had opened between this world and the next – – a door that wouldn’t close again.

From that point on, I made it my life’s purpose to understand how best to communicate with spirits, bring hope to those grieving for loved ones who have died and teach sensitive people how to develop their spirit connections.

I’ve provided messages on SiriusXM’s “The Seance” with John Edward, “Coast to Coast” with George Noory, KOST FM’s “Angels in Waiting,” KBIG FM’s “Radio Medium,” and numerous other morning drive-time shows.  My television appearances include America Now and Oxygen’s Tori & Dean:  Home Sweet Hollywood. In 2011, HarperCollins published my book, I’m Not Dead, I’m Different: Kids in Spirit Teach Us to Live a Better Life on Earth. It has been translated into other languages and is available worldwide.

Although I’ve been living in the San Fernando Valley for more than 25 years, working with the spirits has taken me around the world. My office is in Valley Village where I meet people and their spirits, in person and in small groups. However, my suitcase remains packed and I’m ready to drive to Orange County and San Diego or hop a plane to speak for conferences such as The Afterlife Conference in Portland, Sun Valley Wellness, Body, Mind Spirit in Denver and Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E in New York and Virginia Beach.

Wherever the spirits are, that’s where I’ll be!

“One thing that I know for sure is that if we’re willing to learn, there’s no end to what those in spirit can teach us.” -Hollister Rand, I’m Not Dead, I’m Different.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
When I first started seeing spirits, it wasn’t a cool or trendy thing and there were no shows about mediums on TV. At that time, many people were afraid of ghosts and spirits – – and therefore, of me. However, by working with scientists who sought to verify that spirit communication is real, I’ve been able to contribute to the ever increasing interest in the Afterlife.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient medium which means that I can see, hear and feel the presence of spirits as well as get a sense of their personalities, emotions and physical attributes.

The scope of my work demonstrates my commitment to integrating spirit communication into everyday life. I work specifically at the frequency of love so that messages focus on the healing aspect of re-establishing a relationship broken by death.

My ability to express the personalities of those living in spirit provides additional comfort to those in need, allowing them to finish what is unfinished and say what needs to be said.

What sets my work apart from others is the specificity of information received from the spirits which may include names, dates, family history and cause of death.

What were you like growing up?
As a child I was extremely sensitive. Going to bed at night was in some ways a contact sport, because my room would fill up with spirits. I “slept” with the lights on and one eye open. I felt things very deeply, which made it difficult being in crowds. I was also extremely creative and musically inclined, taking voice and piano lessons, and majoring in voice and music in college. Fashion wise, I dressed like a little old lady in polyester pant suits and velour tracksuits (NO sense of style). My mother (who adored fashion) dragged me to get my ears pierced on my 16th birthday and bribed me with ice cream to wear lipstick for the first time. Over the years I’ve created my own sense of style which is combination Eastern flow, boho chic, and down home comfort.
