What is a Psychic?

The word psychic comes from the Greek word psyckhikos meaning soul, or life. A psychic is someone who is consciously aware of their sensitivity to the non-physical, extra-sensory energies that make up and permeate the universe. Sometimes psychic functioning is referred to as a 'sixth sense'. And that is just what it is. Or maybe sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth senses!

Psychics come in many flavors:

  • Some people 'see' information. That is called clairvoyance.
  • Some people 'hear' information. That is called clairaudience.
  • Some people 'feel' information from physical objects. That is called psychometry.
  • Some people 'know' information when a question is posed. They are called 'seers'.
Do Psychics have special "gifts"?

Accomplished psychics spend years developing their awareness and the skills of their perception, however:

Psychic functioning is a normal part of every person's life. It is not a gift, a phenomenon or a fluke.

It is a learned mental skill like any other. With direction and practice anyone can learn to develop their psychic skills to the best of their unique ability.

I teach classes for people who are interested in developing their own psychic abilities. These classes start with the basics and progress through sophisticated processes of mental telepathy, manifestation and soul rapport.

Information about these classes is available through the Workshops link above.

What is a Medium?

A medium is someone who communicates with spirits. Or more accurately, someone with whom the spirits find it easy to communicate.Our loved ones who have deceased are always around us. Sometimes they try to get a message across to us. Sometimes the message is important -- other times they just want to remind us that they still think we're buffoons with control issues.

Usually we cannot hear them. Depending on your loved ones, this may be a blessing!

A Medium is a person who can hear, or see, or feel spirits of people or animals that are on the other side of the transition we call physical death.

The word 'medium' is used in a very mechanical way, in much the same way that television and radio are each considered a medium.

 A radio or television carries messages we can not see or hear, and converts them to a form we can see or hear. A Medium carries a message from one plane to another.

Why should I get a Reading?
  • A Reading can help you learn more about yourself and the events happening in your daily life.
  • A Reading can help you understand what causes the situations you experience, connecting the dots between the cause and effect of events in your lifetime.
  • A Reading can help you feel more safe and secure knowing you're where you're supposed to be, even in the midst of unrest and upset in your life.
  • In a Reading you can hear from loved ones on the other side and learn that they still love you and are a part of your life.
Do I have to do anything during a Reading?

Nope, you don't have to do or say anything special. Just be relaxed and open to receiving new information. I'll be listening to the sound of your voice, more than the words you say. I Read for non-English speakers when there is a translator available, and I've read from coughs, laughter, and sneezes!

I encourage you to take notes during the Reading. Questions will occur to you as you listen to the information, and by writing them down we can come back to them at the end of the Reading.

Can I call from my cell phone?

Because my Readings are based on a connection I make through hearing your voice, the quality of the phone connection is important. For best accuracy and recognition during the first part of the Reading when I am making this connection, I need to hear the high and low-end frequencies of your voice. Therefore It is best to call me from a regular hard-wired land-line telephone if you have one available. Cordless home phones are usually OK.

However, so many people only use cell phones that it is not uncommon for me to read for someone on a cell phone. The most common difficulty we experience in that case is getting good signal strength. If you're going to be using a cell phone for your reading, you might want to test the location where you'll be in advance of your appointment to make sure you have a good signal.

Modern digital communications (cell phones, internet phones) often compress or cut off a segment of voice frequency. We can still do a Reading, it just takes a few minutes longer for me to connect with your Record.

What if I'm sick and don't sound normal?

A cold or sore throat won't change the outcome of the Reading. Laryngitis may prove a problem. If it does, we can just reschedule.

Caveats: Can I ask Medical and Legal Questions?

I am not a medical doctor, thus I do not diagnose, nor prescribe. I believe in health and wellness and will answer all of your questions to the best of my ability, but I should not be considered an alternative to medical care.

Likewise, I am not a lawyer and should not be used as an alternative to legal counsel.

It's rare, but in the event no answer comes through to a question you have asked, I will be very careful to say "I have no answer to that question. There is no information coming through." This way a conversational 'yes' or 'no' from me will not be misinterpreted out of context as an affirmative or negative answer to your question.

I do not claim to know all and see all. A Reading can cover anywhere from three months to thirty-five years to the rest of your life. I have no control over that. I have learned that when a person is particularly stressed the time period covered by a Reading compresses to a shorter period, usually surrounding the immediate situation.
