How To Become More Psychic

10 Comments

I’m a big believer that everyone – EVERYONE  — is psychic.   Whether it’s a hunch, first impression or gut feeling, intuition is hardwired into our system.  It was a survival skill back in the day – and can still save you from a whole lot of aggravation, if you only trust it more.  Admit it:  there’s been at least one instance in your life where you “knew” something, right?  Did you blow it off at the time?  Many of us do, but I’m here to tell you that learning how to pay attention to those little “pings” is going to change everything.

Sorry, the tin foil doesn't increase the frequency...
Sorry, the tin foil doesn’t increase the frequency…

So what distinguishes a professional psychic like me from plain old you?  Not much, actually.  I compare it to a radio:  some people are born with their intuition “channel” locked in and turned waaaaay up.  Others have to fiddle with the knobs a little to pick up what’s out there in the ether.  But it’s totally do-able.  Like anything, it just takes practice.

There are three basic ways psychic information shows up:

Clairvoyance:  “clear seeing.”  This is when you see images in your mind’s eye.  There are some psychics who see things for real – but most of us see it in our head.  I may see images of people involved in a person’s job, or a geographical place if I sense a move.

Clairaudience: “clear hearing.” This is “hearing” sounds, voices, words in your mind’s ear.

Clairsentience: “clear feeling.”  You feel physical sensations, smell things – anything that engages your senses.  For instance, I may feel a heaviness in my chest when I’m picking up someone who passed from lung or heart issues.

Very often, a psychic will get a mashup of the three.  One channel may dominate, and it may vary from day to day.  For me, I tend to predominantly hear and feel my info, with seeing images close behind.  Like your fingerprint, your intuitive style is completely unique.  And its fun to figure it out!

Spinning the psychic mashup groove.

The experience of “getting” information often trips people up because they think they’re just “imagining” it.  Here’s the thing – your imagination is the vehicle.  It has to be – that’s how we process things in our lives.

Think about what you have to do after work.  You’re probably seeing yourself running to the grocery store, picking up the kids after soccer and making dinner.  That information shows up in your imagination, like images on a screen.  And it’s the same way with psychic stuff.

The trick is to learn how to distinguish between the kind of imagination that has you seeing yourself in a hot air balloon with George Clooney (OK, that’s just me) – and the kind where you’re seeing a new job opportunity.  That just comes with practice.

Psst!  George!  Call me!
Psst! George! Call me!

Before I share some fun exercises, let’s talk keeping yourself sane and healthy.  Any kind of psychic work involves energy.  It’s important to take some care before you dive in.  Why?  Well, think about one of those people – and you KNOW you know one – who just drains you.  They have a talent for sucking you dry with their problems.  After a night out, listening to their story (again), they say something like, “Wow – it was so great to see you.  I feel soooo much better!”  You, on the other hand, feel like you got hit in the face with a bat.

Yeah, they kinda make you feel like this.
Yeah, they kinda make you feel like this.

So energy is a real thing, and you need to know how to work with it. Before I do anything related to spiritual work, I envision an “egg” of protective white light around my whole body.  This is something I learned years ago; it takes about 2 seconds and serves as a shield from whatever, good and bad.  It keeps me from becoming completely knackered after a reading (PS  — it’s a good thing to do when you’re about to meet that Energy Vampire for drinks.  You’ll thank me in the morning).

It'll look a little like this....
It’ll look a little like this….

If your ability to “see” this white light isn’t so hot, you can just say something like, “I surround myself with the white light of love and protection.”  That’ll work, too.

So make it a point to do this super-quick ritual before practicing anything to do with your psychic side.   It’s not a bad addition to your daily life in general — keeping a lot of random crap from sticking to you.

Now, let’s dive in.

NAME THAT HEADLINE

I first started teaching this little exercise back when old school newspapers were still big.  Even if you get your daily news fix from an online site, it’ll still work.

Here’s what you do:  start by putting yourself in that handy egg of white light.  Then…

1)  Set a notebook and pen aside to record what you get.  Close your eyes, relax and take a few deep breaths.

2)  Envision a blank movie screen or piece of paper in front of you.  Keep breathing.

3)  Now ask the Universe to send you a hint of tomorrow’s news.  It may come as an image, a word, a feeling.  Stay relaxed and let it unfold.  Go with the first thing you get.  I can’t stress this enough; oftentimes, our first impression is the RIGHT one.  But we talk ourselves out of it.

4)  As this is happening, stay gently engaged and observe how you’re getting the info:  are you seeing it, feeling it, hearing it?

5)  After a few minutes (really, keep this short so you don’t get too anxious), take a few more breaths and return to the “here and now.”  Jot down what you got.  Check it tomorrow and see how you did.

You may need to do this a few times before you get a “hit.”  But it’s fun!

OBJECT READING

For this, you’ll need something like a piece of jewelry, from someone you don’t know the backstory on all that well.  Maybe ask a friend to bring you their mother-in-law’s earring (yes, you’ll give it back.  Unless its really nice….).  You can try it on anything where you can get some confirmation afterwards.

Once more, put yourself in that white-light-egg thingy.  Then…

1)  Set a notebook and pen aside to record what you get.  Close your eyes, relax and take a few deep breaths.

2)  Hold the object in your non-dominant  hand (meaning, the one you don’t write with).  That allows you to tap more easily into the subconscious.  Relax and keep breathing.

3)  What information is coming off the object?  It may come as an image, a word, a feeling.  Stay relaxed and let it unfold.  Go with the first thing you get.  And, this is important, tell your friend what you’re getting (so they can verify).  Don’t try to understand it.  Just say what you’re getting.  This may take some time, since we tend to want to be “right.”  Learning to just flow with the information is one of the hardest parts of psychic development.

4)  Again, stay gently engaged and observe how you’re getting the info:  are you seeing it, feeling it, hearing it?   Does one dominate more than the others?

5)  After a few minutes, take a few more breaths and return to the “here and now.”

As your friend tells you what was a “hit,” recall how you got that piece of info.  Seeing, hearing, feeling….The more you do this, the more clearly defined will be that line between your everyday imagination and the particular way your psychic info comes in.

These are two simple exercises that train your psychic muscle, but you can work it all day long:  as in, “who’s calling?”  (don’t cheat and look at your phone). Is a particular person going to reach out to you today?  What song will come up next on the radio?  You could sit with a deck of cards while you watch Real Housewives and try to guess their color, suit or number as you pull each from the deck.  The idea is to let the part of you that doesn’t work off intellect to be in the driver’s seat more often.

And the one thing I can’t emphasize enough?  Follow your gut.  When something comes up in your life that you’re not sure of, what does your  gut tell you?

This gut tells me to cut down on the pork rinds.
This gut is saying, “Cut down on the pork rinds.”

Paying attention — and acting on the feelings your gut inspires — is the easiest way to tune up your psychic muscle.  I’ve heard that “intuition is wisdom in reverse.”  So start working that channel and save yourself a lot of grief.  You’ll thank me (and I love gift cards to Target!).

So what times did your intuition tell you something?  Spill it in the comments section!

“Curses!” Or How They Get In Your Head

2 Comments

Not long ago, I had a woman come in for a reading.  Well-dressed, educated, well-spoken  — and absolutely terrified.  It seems that she’d been to another reader earlier in the week, and was told that she’d been “cursed.”  She hemmed, hawed, tried to laugh it off, because, really, who believes in those things….

Yeah, she could've really used a Xanax.
And this was after a couple Xanax.

But as much as she struggled to brush it away, she was quietly freaked out.  Then she handed me a small piece of amethyst crystal and told me that the reader had promised her that this stone would help start to dissolve the curse. Operative word, “start” — she’d need new ones to keep it going (of course).  This little stone sold in our store for five bucks;  that reader had charged her — wait for it — four hundred American dollars.  And she’d paid it!

And it was about this size, too.  Pitiful.
And it was about this size, too. Pitiful.

Well, I spent the better part of our session comforting her, telling her that there are no such things as curses, except to the extent we let someone else in our head.  It’s a strong suggestion that we take to heart, and ultimately, make happen. A “curse” is the ultimate way of giving your power over to someone else.  And sadly, there are some who know how to work it like a drag queen on the runway.

"You betta work...."
“You betta work….”

These unethical readers can be very good at conning people (its too damn bad they don’t put those dodgy people skills to a good use).  They know how to zero in on your soft white underbelly.  Four hundred dollars later, you’re wondering what happened and feeling like a world-class idiot.

They'd be so much easier to spot if they really dressed like this.  But they don't.
They’d be so much easier to spot if they really dressed like this. But they don’t.

Please don’t blame yourself.  When you come for a reading, you’re at least a little bit vulnerable.  There’s something going on in your life that you need help with.  If someone’s going to take advantage of that, just know that there’s a special place in Hell reserved for them (its located next to that person who bores you to tears with pictures of their license-plate collecting hobby. Only here, you can never get away!)

My rule is this:  it’s perfectly acceptable to pay a fee for a reading. You’re paying for the reader’s time, energy and talent.  But once they start tacking on “extras” or giving you a sense that your life will totally derail without there special help, leave.  One of the cardinal rules of the metaphysical world is that we all have free will; a reading should encourage you to use it to advance your life in a positive direction.  Every esoteric system that I know of also emphasizes embracing one’s own power — so if someone is attempting to make you feel powerless, dependent, helpless, frightened, tell them to pound sand.  They don’t have your best interest at heart, just your wallet.

If you’ve found yourself in this situation,  don’t beat yourself up: take it as a reminder from the Universe to embrace your own power and not give it over to a psychic.  Or anyone, for that matter (as in crappy bosses, loudmouthed partners or your bitchy mother).

As for that store-front swindler that freaked out so many of my clients, well, she suddenly moved on.  I hear the cops shut her down (ya think?); unfortunately for her — and anyone like her — the Universal Cop will also come calling at some point, as well.   And no 400-dollar crystal will help them.

Don’t Fear the Reader

No Comments

She leaned across the table and said, “I had you come here this afternoon while he’s not here, because he thinks this stuff is like black magic….”

(Sigh) Man, if I had a dime for every time I’ve heard that psychics are spawns of the devil, I’d be writing this from a beach In Turks and Caicos.  With a drink in my hand.  And someone rubbing my feet.

My next office....
My next office….

Here’s the thing:  as a reader, I believe, to the deepest part of my soul, that what I do is in the service of all that’s positive and good.  I believe that I’m working on behalf of a Higher Power, helping my clients find a path to their happiest, most fulfilled life.  And if that doesn’t that fall under the category of “spiritual,” I don’t know what does.

And there’s more: part of my prep work for a session is to say the Lord’s Prayer.  I also ask that all information that I get be for my client’s highest good and the good of all.  Finally, I surround myself and the space with white light, only allowing positive energies in.

OK, so I frequently use the Tarot during a reading, and of all metaphysical tools, the cards probably have the worst rep.  There’s a reason for that — but it’s not what you might expect.

Way, waaaaay back in the day, the Church was the arbiter of everything.  EVERYthing.  People got their direction from the priests, who were considered the one and only link to the Divine.

"Don't question me..."
“Don’t question me…”

Well, the Tarot — along with other esoteric systems — reveals our own link to the Source. The theme that runs through Tarot is that of personal responsibility, and one’s own experience of God.  Naturally, the Big Dawgs of organized religion did not dig this idea.  AT ALL. So they tried to keep the flock in line by scaring them.  It’s that simple.

Despite the fact that we now know the world isn’t flat and dragons don’t exist (at least here in New Jersey), many people still buy into these myths.  I can’t tell you how many discussions I’ve had with several family members of the Evangelical bent that basically end with, “You’re going to Hell.”  Hey, thanks for coming!  Remind me to call in sick to the next family dinner!

And they think what I do is wierd?
And they think what I do is wierd?

While I fully recognize that there are some who dabble in the dark side of things for their own power,  I do not acknowledge them.  I simply don’t.  Natural law will soon show them their mistake (as in, whatever you put out comes back three times). It’s a little like that scene in The Wizard of Oz where Glinda the Good Witch laughs at the Wicked Witch and banishes her from Munchkin Land “before someone drops a house on you, too.”  You just don’t give it any power. (In the end, Natural Law — in the form of a bucket of water — took care of her wrinkly green ass too, didn’t it?)

Do not mess with the power of pink sparklies....
Do not mess with the power of pink sparklies….

So whatever myths, legends, rumors or campfire tales you may have heard about psychics, I urge you to find out the truth for yourself.  Think for yourself.  I consider it part of my job to give you food for thought — and a sense of your own power to direct your life.  So can I get an “amen” up in here?

Psychic Encyclopedia: The Trickster

3 Comments

I just learned about something called “The Trickster.”  Not to be confused with T-Rex, Jeepster (love this song).

The Trickster is just what it sounds like:  an entity with a slightly warped sense of humor.  Your keys go missing, your reading glasses vanish, your checkbook was JUST THERE and it disappears.  Some of it may be age-related (or in my case, blonde-related) but there are times when its The Trickster.

Don't you just want to kick this little wiseass in the nads?
Don’t you just want to kick this little wiseass in the nads?

According to Wikipedia, the Trickster appears in a ton of other cultures, such as “Loki” in Norse mythology or “Anansi” in African lore. “Br’er Rabbit” in American folktales is another representation. Bottom line, we’ve got a very deep familiarity with this kind of energy, the kind that likes to break rules, mix it up and generally tweak easily-frustrated humans.

I believe that every home has a House Spirit — and The Trickster may pay a visit when the House Spirit isn’t looking (probably folding laundry — which I wish MY House Spirit would do).  The best way to deal with their naughtiness is to call them on it.    I read of one woman whose bag of pearl onions went missing as she made dinner.  They had been there in her produce drawer, then they weren’t.  She called out — loudly — “I want those onions back, and I want them NOW.”

Believe it or not, she heard a “thunk,” opened the drawer and –you guessed it — there they were.

Kinda wish it was a bag of diamonds....
Kinda wish it was a bag of diamonds….

So it goes to show you that the Trickster isn’t evil — they’re just a little twisted.  Like your weird Uncle Bart.  Or Rick James.  And recognizing what they’re up to is your best weapon.  I want to learn more about this entity, so share any stories, myths or family tales you might have!

Psychic Skill: Psychometry

No Comments

Sometimes, I’ll just be sitting at Olive Garden, inhaling the endless breadsticks,when a Psychic Emergency strikes.  Someone needs a reading! When I don’t have my cards or crystals handy, I turn to “psychometry.”

Psychometry is the art of object reading.  You hold something belonging to the subject as a way to link in with their energy.  That allows you to “read” them more easily.

Here’s how I do it:  I take something the person wears a lot, if possible. A ring, watch, necklace — even their car or house keys — anything that’s absorbed their energy.  Placed in my non-dominant hand, (the left), it’s a way to reach the subconscious; I start to feel the connection to that person and off I go.

Clearly, Frodo did NOT enjoy the vibes he got from THIS ring....
Clearly, Frodo did NOT enjoy the vibes he got from THIS ring….

When I teach my Psychic Development class, I have the students each put something of theirs in a paper bag.  Then I pass it around, have them pull out a random item and read it (without the owner revealing themself until the end).  It’s a fun exercise and even beginners tend to “get” something.

The way you receive information from psychometry will be unique:  you may feel a physical sensation, hear words in your mind’s ear or see images in your mind’s eye.  It may be a combination of all three.  Like your fingerprints or taste in music, your psychic style is unlike anyone else’s.  As you get confirmation of what you’re getting, you’ll develop a sense of that style and build your confidence.  The thing is to be brave:  say what you’re getting, even if you’re not sure.  You’ll be surprised at how often you’re right.  Don’t be afraid to be “wrong.”  Even the most gifted psychic is never on the money 100 percent of the time.   If they tell you they are, run in the other direction.

It’s funny the kind of energy that “things” can give off.  I was once in an antique store with my sister and started to feel very lightheaded and anxious.  Turns out that there was a section filled with nothing but swords and knives used during wartime. The violent history of those items was still churning, but good.

The bad juju from the Civil War is NOT "gone with the wind."
The bad juju from the Civil War is NOT “gone with the wind.”

It’s for that reason that anything you bring home from a swap meet, antique store or yard sale should be heavily saged; you don’t want any funky residual energies coming into your life.

This yard sale goodie doesn't need sage...it needs to be destroyed, ASAP.
This yard sale goodie doesn’t need sage…it needs to be destroyed, ASAP.

Psychometry was one of the first things I  learned when I was developing my psychic awareness, and its a wonderful way for “beginners” to start unfolding their own ability.  Maybe because you literally have something to cling to as you read!

Angels: They’re Not Just for Christmas Anymore

No Comments

This time of year there are angels everywhere: in malls, on Christmas cards, hanging from my neighbor’s roof — you name it. I like the ones at Rockefeller Center myself:

images

We tend to focus on the one angel who brought the news of Jesus’s birth – and that would be Archangel Gabriel.  Now I know she (yes, she’s the only one depicted as a girl in art and literature) works more than that one day a year.  So I decided to find out more about this entity who was entrusted with the biggest Facebook post of all time.

"OMG!  Don't let those barn animals near the baby..!"
“OMG! Don’t let those barn animals near the baby..!”

Gabriel is — no surprise — the angel of communication.  She’s the one to call upon if you’re a writer, artist, journalist, or anyone who needs to get their message out.  This goes for psychic work as well;  Gabriel can help unblock your Third Eye and send you angelic guidance, prophetic dreams and visions (might want to not be driving when you send up your request.  Just sayin’).

Archangel Gabriel can send inspiration and motivation — and she will give you a righteous kick in the ass if you are held hostage by fear and procrastination.

If you feel like you’re not where you need to be, that you’ve fallen off your “path” — give her a shout .  She’ll get you straightened out and send you hints, info and nudges that will reveal your true calling.  So needless to say, when you’re considering a career or job change, add Gabriel to your LinkedIn contacts.

But she’s not just about communication themes: like most women, she’s got a practical streak.  Call on Gabriel if you’re trying to either get pregnant or adopt a child.  She can help if you’re buying or selling a house.  She’s also gonna help you out if you’ve overdone it on junk food, booze or anything else not Dr. Oz-approved; Gabriel will help you put down that box of  Franzia, those Salem menthols, and purify your body.  This goes for toxic thoughts, too.  After all the family dysfunction this season brings, that’ll come in handy.

When you can't get in to see THIS guy....
When you can’t get in to see THIS guy….

Gabriel is one of only two angels mentioned by name in the Old Testament (Michael is the other);  clearly,  she made an impression.  And she doesn’t mess around: when you call on her, she will push you into the kind of action that will lead to wonderful things.   So ring her up — and then “hark” to what this amazing “herald angel” has to say to you.  It will be life-changing.

Drag Queens and The Devil

2 Comments

I’m obsessed with drag queens.  I love them.  RuPaul’s Drag Race is my not-so-guilty pleasure, and To Wong Foo is one of my favorite movies.

From To Wong Foo: Wesley Snipes, John Leguizamo and Patrick Swayze embracing their drag selves — and workin it!

Now what could a middle-aged Methodist from a small town who personally prefers Land’s End over Louboutins find in this world of sequins, wigs and general diva-liciousness?  I think it boils down to the flat-out fearlessness of these guys.

Seriously. How can you NOT love someone this fabulous?

Drag Race has showcased some of the backstories on their contestants. Not only have they each had to deal with the challenges of being a gay man, they add another layer by choosing to dress up as women.  Sadly, that’s alienated some of them from their families, gotten them beaten up and frequently made their daily life less than fun.

But  has it stopped them?  Hellllll-to the-no.  These guys embrace their wildly creative visions and put ’em out there in the world with a hip snap and “How ya like me now?” fierceness.  They are role models for overcoming Fear — or at least, not letting it hold them back from being who they want to be.

And this is where The Devil comes in (and no, not in the fundagelical homophobic sense).  Whenever this card comes up in someone’s reading, I remind them that the scary dude pictured is not actually Satan — it’s what he represents, which is fear.  Take a closer look:

He’s huge and scary.  The people beneath him are wearing chains, attached to heavy stones.  They are too terrified to move and think the stones wouldn’t budge anyway.  But wait– check out those chains again.   They’re loose and could easily be taken off.  It’s just that the folks are too freaked out by the Devil’s “ooga booga” hollering above them that they don’t know it.

To me, those stones represent the things that make us feel “stuck” in a bad place.  It frequently comes up with folks dealing with drug, alcohol, gambling, toxic relationships or other unhealthy things, but it also applies to any issue that makes you feel powerless.  The notion of change can be so overwhelming that it’s easier to stay stuck.  That’s the Devil, in your head,  telling you that you’ll fail, its too risky, you’re not good enough, yadda yadda yadda.

One thing I’ve learned is that the IDEA of your worst fear is actually worse than if it actually happens.  I once worried about losing a particular relationship; the thought of him ending it was too painful to even think about.  But when it happened, I had a revelation — I was still alive, it didn’t destroy me after all.  I was still my same bad-assed self –even with mascara running down my face (which a drag queen would never let happen).

So next time you’re facing That Thing That Always Trips You Up, remember the lesson of the drag queens:  put on your sparkly heels, lift off those tacky chains, tell Mr. Satan to kiss your fabulous ass and start walking towards something better.

Chad Michaels — love!

“My kitty sees dead people!”

No Comments

I work as a psychic/medium – but don’t limit myself to two-legged clients.  I’m frequently asked to talk to pets, including those who’ve passed over.  And their take on that experience is pretty interesting.

Not quite the Spirit Pet I'm talking about....

Animals understand – on a very fundamental level — that death is merely a change from one form of energy to another.  I believe its because they’re closer to nature; they recognize the rhythms of life, and don’t attach so much baggage to them.

They also know that, while death may keep them from playing fetch, it doesn’t really separate them from their human friends. They still pop in to curl up on their favorite spot on the sofa, or patrol the house, making sure everyone is safe and sound.

"3 a.m. and all is well...."

A spirit pet will often help a living animal adjust to a new home.  In my volunteer rescue work, we placed a cat with a family who had just lost their sweet Pearl a few months before.  I strongly sensed  — and so did the new kitty – Pearl’s spirit.  But I also got that she was helping him figure out his new surroundings  and settle in.

Animal spirits frequently  “direct” their owners to their next pet. They know best what that person needs, so they’ll arrange for a certain stray to cross their path….or to spot an ad for a dog in need of a new home.  Its kind of like being a four-legged matchmaker!

"Hmmm....a Boxer mix dating a Yorkie? Not gonna work..."

Intellectually, most of us understand that we’ll be reunited with our furry loved ones at some point, but it’s a tougher sell to our hearts.  Right before you go to sleep, ask your spirit pet to make its presence known.  You may dream of them, or think you feel them jumping on the bed, or brushing up against you (they are).   Keep your radar up and you’ll start to sense them more often – because that powerful bond between us never dies.

Living In the Past (Life)

1 Comment

There’s something really tantalizing about the idea of having lived before.  I’m not talking about that life before entering the Witness Protection Program — I mean the ones that had you riding alongside Charlemagne, or hanging on a barge with Cleopatra.  [Funny, you never want to think about the one you had as a chimney sweep in 18th century London…]

No one wants to admit having been THIS guy...

The Past Life Club essentially argues that we have lived multiple times, and that each of those lives were essentially one more “class” in the school of existence.  We had experiences, dealt with other humans, learned lessons.  You die, spend some time assessing it all, then come back for another go. When you finally get it right, you get to hang out  indefinitely in the heavenly stratosphere getting your feet rubbed while the rest of us slobs return to deal once again with human stuff like difficult relationships, making a living and acid reflux.

Like vacations, some past lives will be more memorable than others.  Hint:  if you are interested in any particular time period in history, that’s a pretty good indicator you lived back then.  For me, I’ve been obsessed with this guy:

Ladies, here's the poster boy for staying single...

…and his daughter….

The REAL Iron Lady....

Ever since I was a kid, anything about Tudor England has fascinated me — and I never knew why.  Then a psychic told me that I had been a court jester — specifically, a FEMALE court jester — during that era.   And a little research revealed that female jesters were relatively rare, and indeed, Elizabeth DID have one.  So that explains two things:

1) my interest in the time period and

2) my inherent wise-assiness

On two separate occasions, I was told that I’d had lives in medieval France, as a nun…

Black and white, always an easy wardrobe choice on busy days.

Again, doesn’t explain my lousy command of the French language.  DOES explain my currently-dismal dating life.

Decoding past lives is one way to shed some  light on patterns we’ve carried over into this one.   Again, it’s one way (therapy is another). But for some, the idea of past lives can become addictive. I’ve encountered more than a few people who routinely blame whatever’s going on right now on a “past life.”   One client of mine refused to actively engage in the life he had going on right here, right now, because he was waiting to be “reunited” with someone from a past life.  Another spends all his time seeking out hypnotherapists who will help him explore yet another existence….and another…and another (yawn).  Personally, I think it’s ’cause he’s bored with his present situation.

The purpose of examining a past life lies in what it can teach you about THIS one. If you can spot a pattern, find a lesson, learn something, then it becomes more than just New Age wallpaper.  The key is to discover it, use it — then move forward.  Your task is to make the most out of the life you’ve been given NOW. Because if you spend all your time looking backwards, you’re gonna get run over by the Express Bus to the future.  And skid marks on the face are not a good look on anyone.

Psychic Phone Tag

No Comments

One of the subjects I’m most asked is about psychic readings that are done over the phone, versus in person:  how do they work?  Are they as accurate as an in-person reading?  And why would you want one?

Let me break it down for you, starting with the last part:  why would someone want a phone reading instead of sitting down with your reader.  Answer:  for the same reason shopping online beats dealing with the mall.  It’s waaaay convenient.  Just imagine:  there you are, in your comfy pants [and I KNOW you have them],

Hopefully, these are not them...

on the couch, perhaps with a cocktail nearby.  On a rainy, snowy, or otherwise totally busy day, that beats having to drive one more place, in my book.

Seriously. Do you want to have to go out in THIS?

Phone readings are also great when you’ve found a reader you really, really love — but he/she happens to be geographically undesirable.  I like a certain reader in New Orleans [yes, psychics get readings for themselves too], and call her once or twice a year for my own personal “check up from the neck up.”

As to how a phone reading works, its really no different than a reading done in person.  When I schedule my clients, I have my cards, crystals and reading mat at the ready, and a headset to keep my hands free.  A time is arranged for the call, and all the client has to do is sit back, relax and soak up the information.  They may miss out on the smell of incense or the music I normally have in the background during a private reading, but that’s it.  No biggie.

...Operators are standing by...

Is the information as accurate as if the client were right in front of you?  Yes.  Basically, what’s happening during any reading is that the client’s Higher Self and the reader’s Higher Self are having a little chat out there in the atmosphere.  The information trickles down to the humans involved, where its then relayed.  Whether said humans are sitting across from each other, or on opposite ends of a phone line doesn’t matter.  It’s a whole “Time/Space” thing, meaning that neither of those really “exist” on the spirit level.  Get it?  Me neither, but that’s what I’m told by my guides.  At any rate, and having done tons of phone readings for people all over the country, I know its true.

So next time you’re feeling the need for some psychic insights — but your schedule is just off-the-charts crazy — don’t be afraid to leave the car in the garage, and just pick up the phone.  I’m right here.  In my comfy pants.
