Coming from a family who never communicated their personal feelings, I learned a lot about the importance of communication between age groups in my early teens, when I was sent to live with a Dutch family with three children for several months.
I always admired their closeness, but it wasn’t until I actually moved in with them, that I realized just how far their caring and sharing went towards feeling part of such a close knit family. They prayed together too, and included me, always asking for healing for my mother who was having treatment at the time for her ‘nervous condition.’
In later years, as a recovering alcoholic in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), I would often hear the expression, “A family that prays together, stays together.” I am sure this family has stayed close all these years, even though we have lost touch. Read the rest of this entry »
When I started working in the psychic profession in 2001, I wanted a better order for what I felt was working for me. If indeed psychics and intuitives could work well together, then it would be good to teach our norms to non-psychic persons to give them the insight that they were not crazy and that indeed it was not a gift to be hoarded, but something to be shared in good spirit and with good conscience. What is needing teaching though is insight, and people are good at doing this in groups, yet it seems that it takes time for people to accept that opinion is not the same as insight, especially when applicable to persons they do not know.
In the many years I have worked as a psychic, I have been contacted by persons of all cultures who have a deep delight for our work, no matter where in the world, no matter what creed, what culture. I began to write, form interest groups and for many cases we continued to flourish in other creative areas, and as you know, psychic work should only really be done on people we know well, not on people we wish to know, in my opinion.

Many people experienced traumatic situations, or began to question their purpose, which triggered a storm of emotions for some. While some are handling these changes well, it is overwhelming for others, because the energies are currently much more intense, and somewhat imbalanced.
With Jupiter now in Scorpio, for the next year, a lot of stuff will come to the surface on a personal and political level, which may be a little painful, but necessary to help create positive change. Read the rest of this entry »
The answer might surprise you. I sometimes ask questions to help clarify and understand the information and feelings I am picking up around your situation. A truly beneficial reading should always include an exchange of information, with questions and answers from both parties.
Once you, as the client, understand why I am asking certain questions, you will find yourself far more satisfied with the reading in the end. You will be left with hope, a greater understanding, and a plan of action to move forward. Here’s a prime (yet very shortened) example of why I might ask you a question during your reading.

If you are lucky enough to have a spiritual teacher, you will know that it is an unusual relationship. Nothing else is like it. Yes, the teacher is a human, but the relationship is spiritual, not human. Not when you are the chela*.
Some people love to say they ‘know’ their spiritual teacher, or are close to their teacher, as if that somehow is a badge to claim their progress towards enlightenment. Nothing could be further from the truth, and in fact you can bet that is a sure sign of an overbearing ego.
Surely, you have learned things from amazing people, yet you would not be want to be their friends? You might be eternally grateful for what you learned from them, yet still would not go to lunch with that person. And, if you chose to thank the person for what you learned, I suspect you would never tell the person, “You know, I don’t really even like you, but I did learn something.” Instead, you take the best from that person, and leave the rest.

In the few months I have been with Psychic Access, I have had such a warm welcome from clients, fellow readers and the rest of the psychic team, that it feels like home already. And the more I feel settled, the more the readings flow and are affirmed in reality.
Recently, I was surprised by three of the most unlikely of clients calling in to say thank you, which was such a gift. By unlikely I mean, clients who were at first highly dubious of things that have come through in their readings. Thinking about those calls started me musing on the nature of readings, and the necessity for staying in integrity as a psychic reader.
My commitment is to only ever read with integrity, by conveying only what I am shown by guides – good or bad. Sometimes, as an empath, this can be challenging when it is not what the person wants to hear – however kindly I may relay the information, and however much I foresee the bigger picture leading to a better place.

Almost 20 years ago today, I was traveling to Sedona, Arizona, to attend a teacher training program for The Sedona Method program. Little did I know at the time that I was about to discover one of the most important keys to a happy, fulfilling life.
Soon, I found myself in a Sedona conference room filled with psychiatrists, psychologists, and doctors from around the world. I was a young mother and novice Tarot reader at the time. I didn’t feel I was at the professional level of the doctors and behavioral health specialists attending. I felt intimidated, uncomfortable, and actually wanted nothing more than to just go home.
During the first week of training, the director of the class asked me to come up to the front of the room and stand facing everyone. Oh no, I thought to myself, why in the world did I even come to this event! He asked that I demonstrate the technique he had just taught us, with a psychiatrist seated in the front row. My knees were shaking and my heart racing. But, there was no escape, so I decided to simply go for it. Although it was a daunting experience at the time, it was the best thing that ever could have happened to me. Read the rest of this entry »
If you are a passionate, committed person in a field that has become commercialized, it can be so very frustrating. One of the ways I deal with my frustration is with humor. Therefore, if you do not have a sense of humor, or take things very seriously, please do not read any further. If you do, you will be proceeding at your own risk.
I recently worked at a spiritual faire, which no members of the public bothered to attend. It ended up being just the bunch of ‘gifted’ vendors who spent the day talking incessantly about themselves, telling each other the same amazing stories, over and over again. These stories are meant to prove that they were meant to share their ‘gift’ with humanity. Not mentioned in any of these tales is the family money, or lawsuit money, alimony, family or spousal support payments, which helped to finance their perceived notions of being ‘chosen’ to do this work.
