    "Ticket to the Moon" is a spectacular multimedia tribute show dedicated to the music and legacy of the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO).

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    At just eight years old, Linda Shields discovered her gift, which would later on turn into a lifelong career for herself. It wasn’t until she was pushed into it that she discovered what it was that she’d be doing for the rest of her life. Now, 54 years later, the Jersey Shore Medium is touring around the country and continues to be surrounded by spirits in her day-to-day work.


    Eleven years ago, Shields launched her career into becoming the Jersey Shore Medium. It all started in her early twenties when someone approached her with tarot cards. Little did she know she would never see that person again; however, she would end up needing those cards again someday.


    It became public for Shields in the summer of 1990 when she received a phone call to do a reading. Shields’ grandmother was also a psychic who taught her how to turn off and on her senses as well as understand them.


    “There has never been a time where I could not connect with someone,” says Shields. “It’s the readings that when I can give closure or hope, that’s what keeps me going.”


    Shields is able to use the psychic senses of hearing (Clairaudience), tasting/smelling (Clairsentient), and physical feeling or being an Empath during a reading. She was never afraid of her spirits due to the fact that she was always surrounded by them. The Jersey Shore Medium admits that she favors Clairaudience because it’s like having a personal dialogue in her head.


    “I want to stay where I am. I like being the Jersey Shore Medium. I just want in the years to come to have the health to keep doing what I’m doing. As long as I have the energy and the blessings to do it, I’ll do it as long as I can,” Shields states.


    Shields offers private medium readings, medium gallery parties, private tarot card readings, lectures, and fundraising events. In addition, the Jersey Shore native is also the published author of Angel Inspirations for Serenity and LoveCrystal Power, and 12,000 Dreams Interpreted.
