I work at a lot of psychic fairs, where groups of highly experienced readers gather and work with the public. During our breaks, the psychics often sit around together sharing support and also commiserating about some of the challenges of this work.
One of the main frustrations often expressed is that, while 90% of their clients are a great fit and a joy to work with, about 10% of the clients have some pretty mixed up ideas about how psychic readings actually work. Some of these clients have never had a psychic reading before, and they have some very distorted expectations based on what they've seen on T.V. or in the movies. (A mysterious woman wearing a turban and fancy jewelry who somehow knows everything about you by simply looking at you.) Other clients may have had a psychic reading or two in the past, and they erroneously believe that all psychics essentially do the same thing. This type of client then claims it was a "bad reading" or "not a true reading" because the psychic didn't work in the same way as the psychic they'd been to in the past. In both cases, the misinformed client then deems the psychic (who's actually very gifted at what they do!) as illegitimate, and the psychic reading as a total waste of time and money.
Let me be totally clear here. I'm not talking about "baby psychics" here (the person who took a psychic workshop or read a book on how to be psychic, and is doing their first psychic reading for a friend or loved one). In this article, I'm talking about experienced, seasoned psychics, professionals who really know their stuff.
I've hung out with a LOT of professional psychics over the years (some of them are world-renowned), and I've heard hundreds of these colleagues share not only their frustrations over this kind of scenario, but they also express great sadness over the fact that the client was not able to be open to receive the very important and often life-changing psychic information that had been shared with them during their very valuable reading. I feel this sadness, too, when I see a client who completely misses out on the profound messages of the reading.
And so, that's why I feel inspired to write this article. I KNOW there will still be misinformed people in the world, however, if you've found your way to my website and this blog, you may be thinking about working with a psychic in the future. If you're thinking about working with ME in particular, this article will also give you a crystal clear idea of *exactly* how I work so you can make an empowered, informed choice about who you choose to work with.
The first thing you should know is that there are as many kinds of psychics as there are fish in the sea. I’ve met countless psychics in my many years in this field, and each one of us is unique in our gifts and how we use them. In other words, no two psychics are exactly the same, and many are quite different from each other. (Keep that in mind if you think all psychics are alike.)
I have met many professional psychics who do not do even HALF of what I do (listed below in this article). It's not about "comparing" here, but I think it is important for you to have this frame of reference. There are also psychics out there who do cool things that I don't do. The point is, all psychic gifts are valid, and all are unique.
My colleagues and I all have one thread in common, and that’s that no psychic does everything. I have tons of colleagues (even famous ones) who literally cannot see future timelines (like I can), who refuse to do yes/no questions (which I'm a whiz at), who won't give specific, tangible life advice during readings (that's what my readings are all about!), etc. You get the idea. And hey, as for my own skill set, I rarely ever get specific names of people during my readings. I get all sorts of information about their personality, their feelings, their intentions, their future timeline, and more, but rarely do I ever get specific names. Does that mean anyone's readings are crap? Absolutely not. You'll see--in the HUGE list further below--that I get TONS of information during readings, just not names.
The main point here is that within the huge community of psychics I've interacted with over the years, I've never met a single psychic who does it ALL, who is fully omniscient, fully all-knowing (equivalent to God).
In other words, every psychic has their own unique gifts. If we asked every psychic in the world to make a list of their gifts, what they do, how they do it, and what they don’t (or can't) do, every single psychic’s list would look different. Are you beginning to understand now? :-)
Here’s an example of a psychic reader who is VERY different than me. I went to this psychic reader a while back to get a second opinion, to ask her for some practical advice about my upcoming cross-country move from Kansas City to Tucson—a very important life event for me. It turned out that the psychic reader was ONLY able to channel “spiritual messages from the aliens", and literally could not give even a tiny bit of practical advice about steps I should take or how things were going to unfold in my 3D real life. The psychic reading didn’t help me at all. Are there clients who DO enjoy doing readings with her, and are there clients who benefit from working with her? Apparently so! (I've chatted with friends who raved about her readings.) True, she wasn’t a fit for me, and she is basically the exact opposite of how I work as a psychic. Does this mean her work does not have value? Nope, not at all. I think her work has a LOT of value for the clients who are looking for this type of reading.
Recently, a good friend of mine was telling me a story. This friend has worked in the field of spirituality for over fifty years, and I consider her to be a wise elder in our community, providing life-changing intuitive guidance to her customers. She was telling me a story of a psychic she'd gone to many years ago who had really impressed her (but who, in my opinion, had also caused her to diminish the acknowledgment of her own psychic gifts). The psychic had been able to perform "remote viewing" by psychically visiting my friend's home, looking in her closet, and telling her all about her favorite pair of shoes which had a very unique style and design. (That actually is pretty cool and impressive!)
My friend then went on to tell me about some very powerful psychic readings of her own she had done for her clients over the years. But, she then explained that since she could not do what that one psychic in her past had done, she never saw herself as measuring up. I probed her a bit. "Tell me, I understand that the psychic gave you some information that really 'wowed' you, but did she happen to also give you any valuable information to assist you in your life?" "Well no," my friend said, "But she sure impressed me!" I asked her this question because I know that my friend's readings ARE the kind that are deeply impactful and healing for her clients, assisting them with navigating life's many twists and turns. Therefore, (in my opinion!) her readings are extremely valuable and much needed in our community.
My point here is that, sure, about 1 in 50 psychics really has that "wow factor" but there are so MANY gifted psychics in this world who can offer you assistance in a variety of ways. "Wow factor" is just one type of psychic reading among a whole variety of styles. Personally, I consider "wow factor" readings to be for entertainment purposes only, and that's not the style of reader I would typically choose to assist me with important life advice. And we come back to our recurring point: All styles are valid, and it simply depends on what YOU need and desire from the reading.
I happen to be on the email mailing list for one of my psychic reader colleagues who also trains future psychics, like I do. One day, I got a promo email from her that was entitled something like, "Why I Don't Give Advice During Psychic Readings". I was intrigued about what she had to say about this, because my particular style of psychic reading is chock full of helpful life advice. While I apparently do things differently than she does, I thought her perspective was interesting and had a lot of merit. Essentially, in her style of reading (which happens to utilize Tarot cards), she *guides* her client to find their own answers. She also outright refuses to give any future forecasts whatsoever because timelines can change. (It is true, timelines CAN indeed shift in some circumstances.) This psychic professional feels that giving her clients outright advice or future forecasts is not the best route, and she feels that her method is more empowering. I share this example because it shows yet another very skilled psychic professional working out in the world (who also trains other psychics!) who has a very different style than me. Is her style legitimate? Absolutely! And knowing her as a distant acquaintance as I do, and what I've observed about her personality, I suspect that if any client demanded that she jumps through hoops and "perform" her psychic readings any differently than she does, she'd promptly tell them to fuck off. (This makes me chuckle as I type this. LOL. I'm a bit more diplomatic than she is when dealing with naysayers, but I admire her tenacity!)
As you've already read, I’ve been doing this work for many years, and I have had countless very happy clients who have received tremendous help from our work together. This warms my heart and gives me the vitality and inspiration to help even more clients in the future. I've worked with clients who tell me that I get far more information and details than any other psychic they have ever worked with. This happens often with clients who are a good vibrational match with me, and it is pretty darned cool!
However, I need to say something important here. If you need/want me to be just like another psychic you’ve worked with in the past, please do *not* schedule with me. This is common sense. I say this with kindness and with the genuine intent that you get the most of your session time, no matter who you choose to work with. Psychics are not cookie-cutter carbon copies. We are all unique.
When clients who ARE the right fit choose to work with me, we can create a tremendous connection and the best reading possible! That’s exciting. I love those magical connections.
My scope of expertise is VAST. (But, also remember, as I've mentioned before, NO psychic anywhere in the world is fully omniscient--all-knowing, like God.)
While I can do lots of different things quite well, these are the two areas I excel the most.
Scroll down for a much longer detailed list below….
Clairvoyant—I can see images and mental “movies” that give me information about your situation
Clairaudient—I hear words and messages that give me information about your questions
Clairsentient (Empath)—I can feel other people’s emotions, intentions, and even physical sensations when I tune into them
Precognizant—I “know” about future events
(Most people in the world have just one or two of the "clairs". I have ALL of them.)
But I don’t depend on those tools. Most of my readings are just a direct psychic download using the skills I listed above.
I’m a “nuts and bolts” practical advice kind of psychic reader. Come to your reading with a list of specific questions and I’ll give you all sorts of very focused answers to help you live your best life. I don’t do fluffy, flowery readings that *only* focus on the higher vibrations or messages from outer space. I’m here to help you with real life. (And that can also include spiritual issues having an impact on your life.)
My style is conversational and down-to-earth. In other words, as we talk about your situation, I will get a download of psychic information and I’ll share that with you as we go.
As you may have surmised from my website, my unique niche is helping people who are experiencing unwanted paranormal/spiritual situations. I am REALLY tuned in to the paranormal in a unique way, most likely because I've personally experienced some very unusual paranormal situations in my own life. I jokingly say that I have the "spidey sense" when it comes to discerning paranormal situations.
I love love love helping people with their career and job searches. I am an INFJ personality type, so I have a special way of being both highly intuitive and linear at the same time.
Please note: Psychics are not licensed medical professionals, and as such, we are legally not allowed to give any sort of medical diagnosis. As I specialize in *energy* (not medicine), I can tell you all about the energy I see, energy blockages, areas of energetic damage, etc., all of which play a part in what is going on with the physical body. I am also an empath, so I *often* will feel things in my body directly relating to the person in question (pain, etc.).
Important note: I cannot "force" your loved one to communicate. If they are shy with strangers, if they don't believe in psychics or don't want to interact with one due to their religious/personal beliefs, if they have a stubborn personality type, or if they are simply busy on the other side and not available to talk, I will have to ask your loved one's guardian angel for answers instead. Your loved one has free will, as all humans do, and you or I should not force them, nor should we want to. I ask that you show the courtesy of not holding this against me. If your loved one wants to talk, great! If not, there are plenty of other things we can explore, like what I've listed above (what they are doing over there in the afterlife, etc.). ALL information we get is valuable and valid. I am always a very strong advocate for getting as MUCH information as possible for my clients, but I am not the boss of the afterlife. It is up to God and the angels as to what is permitted in regard to someone who has passed on.
You'll see in my list of "don't do's" at the bottom of this article that I rarely get names. So, it is very unlikely I'll get the names of your deceased relatives. It's just not what I do. Although I'll get plenty of information on who they are (uncle on mom's side, etc.), their personality, their feelings, their role, and I am a whiz at *confirming* names, etc. I also don't specialize in finding lost items (like where your deceased loved one has hidden an important heirloom).
Also, it is illegal for someone who is not a medical professional to give a medical diagnosis, cause of death, etc., so if you ask me to do that, you're asking me to break the law. Because I am an ethical psychic, I will not and cannot do this for you. I would appreciate your understanding that I must adhere to the medical laws in this country. For medical questions such as cause of death, please refer to the attending physician.
Please take note of the items on this “don’t do” list, and if these are things you’re wanting, it is best that you don't schedule with me, but rather, schedule with someone else who does do these things. I truly want you to work with whoever is the best match for you.
Many psychics specialize in just one area, like pet psychics, akashic records readers, love life psychics, etc. I love the fact that I am able to work with my clients in the many areas I listed above, which I believe makes our session time even more useful. This means that when you schedule a reading with me, you can ask questions about all sorts of things during your session time, or if you prefer, you can stick to just one topic. It's totally up to you!
