Portrait of a Psychic / Intuitive
Many people ask me how I started doing this work.
As a child, my earliest memory is being 3 years old and telling
my mother things that I could not have possibly known. I would
tell her stories about ladies she socialized with and various
relatives. At first she thought I'd 'overheard' this information,
but then realized that the stories were ones that were shared
when I wasn't there. I told her how the people felt, and about
other people connected to them that I had never met. Eventually
she became 'used to' my stories and knew I had something that was
Knowing things about people unfortunately brought sorrow to me
early on in life when I 'knew' that my father was going to die. I
was 7 years old. The day he died, my mother came to pick up my
brother and me from elementary school. I already knew what had
All though school, I knew what other people were feeling. Mostly
I felt flooded by emotion, often reacting to feelings I'd 'picked
up' from others. I didn't know what was wrong with me. I thought
I was a basket case.
After these and many other experiences, I knew that I had to
learn about what was happening to me. So, at the age of 17,
through a series of highly synchronistic happenings, I began an
internship with an Intuition specialist to learn about and hone
During my training I began to understand some of what I went
through as a child. I analyzed myself as I learned. To this day,
I still work to sort myself from others' feelings. I am more
conscious of it now and it is relatively easy to sort.
My training was 'hands-on' in that I worked along side my mentor
as he consulted with clients. I watched, studied, learned and
joined the consultation. I explored their energy field, their
issues and complaints (with their permission of course). This was
my best form of training. Eventually I began to take over the
consultation sessions, slowly building my own clientele as I
My abilities fall under several categories, clairvoyant,
clairaudient and clairsentient. Clairvoyant, meaning 'clear
seeing,' is the ability to have visions or 'see' a psychic
impression. Clairaudient, meaning 'clear hearing,' is the ability
to 'hear' psychic information from another's energy field or from
higher guidance. Clairsentient, meaning 'clear feeling,' is the
ability to 'feel' or sense the energy field of another and
experience psychic impressions in an emotional or physical way.
My brother has a similar gift. We like to say he has
'radar' or his 'antennas are on' because he just 'knows' things.
My abilities are similar, but are enhanced in the realm of
sensing what is taking place in a person's electromagnetic energy
field. I am an Energy Intuitive, 'seeing', 'knowing' and
'feeling' others. Intuitives are not mind-readers. We are highly
sensitive beings that have learned how to synthesize the
information that we sense around us.
My training taught me to hone into the core of what is taking
place in someone's energy field. This ability allows me to get
right to the center of an issue. The source may be karmic memory
(past life related), childhood patterns, emotional overwhelm,
mental confusion, etc. It may even be emotion that source's from
another person (like a child feeling a parent's feelings).
I actively read anything I could get my hands on about
intuition, counseling techniques, self-help books, meditation,
etc. I took training courses, earned a degree in psychology, went
on retreats, participated in workshops, learned breathwork, I
even hosted my own meditation group. I gathered tools, tips,
techniques and methods to develop my own intuition and I began to
teach others. My internship lasted 5 years and by the time I
completed my training, I had a full client list.
People of every walk of life are interested in learning about
their intuition. Mostly, they are looking for answers. They have
questions within themselves, feel conflicted and confused----
without answers! Ultimately they want to feel better. They are
looking for a way to feel better about themselves, get past their
fears and begin moving forward in their lives. They want more and
don't know how to get it.
During the coaching / intuitive counseling process, we begin
sorting through the emotions, mental chatter and confusions.
Collectively we analyze their current situation, the echoes of
the past that are influencing them, and then develop an active
approach to move forward and transform their lives.
My own intuitive energies come forth, guiding them and directing
their inner quest. As intuitive messages come forward, I deliver
them and help the client to surface the emotional / mental /
physical / spiritual pieces involved to catalyze a
transformation. The working plan of action may include various
assignments and tasks for them to complete along with goals to
In this work, I promote active participation in clearing inner
chatter and identifying old patterns. Intuition is an inherent
trait within us all. Learning to listen to it, work with it and
create life changes out it is a powerful experience that brings
