Meet Medium Barb Mallon - my mentor!

I'm fortunate to know several mediums and incredible people that deal with spirits and ghosts, and this week, I sat down with my friend and mentor Barb Mallon of Northern Virginia. Barb gives educational courses, has group medium events, does one-on-one readings, phone readings and more. 
 Now YOU can get to know Barb and then look her up when you really need to hear from Spirit! - Rob

1. In your own words, who is Barb Mallon, Medium? 

Barb Mallon

I am just your normal mom of three great kids, two pit bull mixes and four fat, furry rats. Besides being a medium, I love silversmithing and creating pretty pieces of jewelry.  I am also an avid animal lover and really enjoy doing events to help local no kill shelters.

2. When in your life did you realize you had an ability to communicate with spirits and how did you handle it? 
I have always been pulled towards metaphysics and worked with the Tarot for many years (just another way for your guides to help with guidance).  I was growing and evolving intuitively and happened to see a medium work somewhere.  It hit me like a hammer over the head, "THAT'S what I'm supposed to be doing."  I didn't know why at the time and was a little leery, not understanding it.  That said, I felt it so strongly and studied, had readings done for myself and it just happened.  People were validating what I was saying.  It was honestly nothing I had to really handle... I fully embraced it!

3. How did you finally embrace your gift of mediumship? 
I just let it happen and not long after, I was getting calls from new clients because of word of mouth.

4.  You wrote a chapter in Rob Gutro's "Pets and the Afterlife" about how your late dog Blue communicated with you from the other side. How amazing was that for you? Was that the first time a dog or cat came through? 
Barb's dog Blue came through
Yes, I think she knew how horrible we felt about how sick she was and the decision we really needed to make.  She gave me the gift of peace of mind - that she was so much better there, but also helped me to let go of the awful guilt I had.  The things she did were more physical and different than when a pet comes through for a client.  I have had hundreds if not thousands of animals come through for their human before Blue passed and after!

5. You also teach psychic development, make jewelry, are a mom and help dog rescues! 
Tell me a little about each of these passions! 
I teach psychic development because I want people to know it's NORMAL to be intuitive and will only help you in this lifetime.  :)  It's amazing to see the lightbulbs go off when my students read for each other.  It's truly fascinating.  
With making jewelry, the art of melting down silver or forming/hammering it into pretty things is so healing for me.  It's even more fun when one of my clients comes in for a reading wearing one of my pieces!  I love chunky and textured pieces with a rustic feel.  
My two boys keep me pretty busy and they also help out with my events - FOR MONEY of course!  They are great kids with their own talents, and yes, both have seen spirits clearly!
Barb the Jewelry Maker!
The older I get, the more my passion for helping helpless animals grows.  Especially to the ones who are judged unfairly, like bully breeds.  It's heartbreaking to know that my insanely sweet Maggie was just hours of being euthanized because of her breed and people's misconceptions about pit bull breeds.  Maggie will come up to you and literally give you a hug!  She is my best friend and "mama" dog.  Her "brother" Sammy will lick you to death, so watch out!  Whatever I can possibly do to help these sweet dogs, I will!

6. What’s next on the horizon for you?
I've been taking a bit of a breather from demonstrations lately and have concentrated on taking more clients and teaching.  I'm introducing a Psychic Development webinar in July and I plan on doing a bunch of these as time permits!

by Rob Gutro: The loss of a pet is like the loss of a child to pet owners. The love we share with our pets never dies, and in a new book called "Pets and the Afterlife" by Rob Gutro, the author provides proof that our pets do communicate with us from the other side.    Available in paperback and E-book, on Amazon.com and other outlets at: To order paperback of Kindle- http://tinyurl.com/mqgamq2%20
