Message from Stef Schoolderman

Yesterday, I received a message from halfway around the world. I want to share this message with you because it is consistent with the messages I receive from other psychics and also because I think it is cool to be be in contact with people in Europe via the Internet. Just a decade ago, this kind of easy, intercontinental communication would have been nearly impossible. I did some minor editing just for clarity.


Hi Gail,

Something to share for your blog.

Warm greetings from the border of Holland and Germany Emmerich-Elten.

My name is Stef Schoolderman and I am 53 years of age. As a human being, I'm a mixture of two cultures, Dutch and Indonesian. My psychic abilities originate from a family-line of shamanic healers. In Indonesia we're called "Hadji" at the island of Java. At Bali we're called "Pemangku". I'm a spiritual life coach practicing ESI Emotional Soul Integration for 13 years now at the level/frequency of the soul.

At an early age, I experienced several aspects as a psychic child. At this age I wasn't able to master the frightening experiences of hearing and seeing entities. I was eight years old when I decided to close my abilities and to banish the contact with the beyond. At this age I was already confronted with the big responsibility of what I could do with this gift. Confronted with the question to do good or bad. So I made the choice not to practice my abilities.

At the age of 37 I got divorced. I was searching for balance in my life. At the age of 40 I met a strong Medium. This woman made a very big change in my life. She gave me the opportunity to see, feel and let go and heal. So I decided it was the right time. All of my abilities came back. But this time I was ready. Ready to give and share healing energy.

This great gift to me was presented 13 years ago now. Every day I'm grateful, giving humble thanks, being able to heal people and help drifting souls to find their way in connecting with Love and Light.

So this is a message to all of us:

Our immortal soul, pure energy of love, can reincarnate in several lives, to work out a theme on a particular emotion. In past life cycles you have experienced, it's possible that you encountered the theme as a victim or as the person who inflicted the emotional traumas upon another human. All the themes and emotions are reflected in the people and situations in this life we're living here, right now.

We're creating this together in order to grow. Getting the insights and understanding in letting go. In this life it's important to integrate the emotions, let the emotions go and make the choice to forgive; making the real important choices in life from your heart. Connecting to the core of your soul, being, pure energy, pure loving Light.

When the life cycle is done, you will return to the source, the Light, to meet your family and friends again leaving your loved ones behind in grief and sorrow. In the Light, we agree with our best friends to help accomplish our task on earth, arranging the situations in this life. You'll meet the people you need.

Love and life is what you want to experience, time after time, until it's the right time. The moment is present to reach your full potential in this lifetime. Our full potential in ourselves is already there. Let us connect and create heaven on earth.

Love and Light

Physical Mediumship

Physical Mediumship

For the last few years, I have been sharing information about people with psychic abilities. Most of these people use their minds and imaginations to connect to Spirit Guides, Spirit, deceased relatives and/or the energy of their clients.

When I was in California, I interviewed a Medium who works in a completely different way. She works with Physical Mediumship. Physical Mediumship was very popular in the mid-1800's and early 1900's. It involves the physical movement of objects and includes things like bending spoons, swinging pendulums, rapping and knocking during seances, and flying furniture. Ouija Boards are another example of this kind of Physical Mediumship which produces phenomena which can be seen, heard or felt by everyone in the room.

The woman who I interviewed uses table tipping to communicate with Spirit Guides and entities on the other side. Have you heard of table tipping? Table tipping is usually done in a dark seance room. People sit around a table and lightly place their hands on top of the table. The Medium works with the other side to bring an entity into the room and, in few moments, the table begins to move, rotate, rise up on one leg, or levitate. By rising up on a leg and coming down with a knock, codes can be set up with the entities. For example, this Medium understands that one tap means, "No," two taps mean, "Ask the question in a different manner," and three taps mean, "Yes." With table tipping, the people at the table actually feel the energy of the person who comes through.

Table tipping was new to me. I hadn't talked with anyone else who did this kind of Mediumship so I asked all sorts of questions. I found out that the psycho-kinetic energy which runs through our bodies is what gets the table moving. This energy comes in through the crown chakra and runs out of the foot and palm chakras. This energy moves the table back and forth. In addition, the table might levitate or walk around the room.

The CA Medium told me that she asks for one entity to come through at a time. She finds out who the entity wants to speak to, then asks if it wants to be identified. This is where her psychic abilities come in. She can see the entity, get its name, and understand a piece of identifying information which that entity wants to say to the person to validate its existence. The entities show her who they are and how they are dressed because it is important for people to understand the identity of the entity. She brings through Spirit Guides and deceased relatives. One of the main reasons to do table tipping is to teach people about their Guides, teachers and loved ones.

This Medium also mentioned that she uses a pendulum for her personal work because pendulums use the same sort of psycho-kinetic energy as is used during table tipping.

On-line, I found an interesting article written by Teresa Lally about table tipping at This article is entitled, "Table Tipping: More Than Just Spirit Communication."

In the middle of the article Teresa Lally observed:

"In my Table Tipping Training workshops, I explain that although mental and physical mediumship are different techniques, they often go hand-in-hand. The more one practices and experiences physical mediumship, the more their mental mediumship skills develop. Every time you sit at table, you are opening a channel and making a connection with the realm of spirit. This realm vibrates at a higher frequency than ours, and, for communication to occur, spirit needs to lower their vibration a bit and we need to raise ours. We meet in the middle, so to speak. The more you do this, the easier it becomes to reach this heightened state. It is common for the "clair" abilities-clairaudience (clear hearing), clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairsentience (clear feeling), and claircognizance (clear knowing)-to develop to a greater degree. You may get a sensation in your own body of what a spirit passed from-for example, a pressure in your chest from a spirit that suffered a heart attack. You may start to "see" pictures in your mind's eye of what the spirit looked like. They may send you pictures that help validate them to their loved ones. These enhanced abilities will persist even when you are not at table, carrying over into and enriching other areas of your life."

It's so interesting to learn about new aspects of psychic ability and Mediumship. Have any of you witnessed table-tipping? I had hoped to be in CA for a demonstration, but I had an emergency and had to return to Tucson.

If your interest has been piqued, think about talking to a psychic or a Medium at the next Psychic Fair at the Windmill Inn. This Fair will be Sunday, October 7, 2012, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. I'll be there with my books and chakra-balancing jewelry and I would love to hear your stories. Who knows? Your story might show up in a blog post.

I also want to mention that I'll be giving a Book Talk at the next Psychic Explorer's Meeting. This meeting will be held October 9 from 7 - 9 p.m. at Unity Church. If you would like to read the book prior to the book talk, you can order it here:, or pick one up at Carefree Computer Services on Ina Road. Believe it or not, I've had people purchase the book so that they are ready to ask questions at the Book Talk.

Have a great day!

Quote from a Psychic:

My philosophy about being here on Earth is that we come to learn certain lessons. The Source of Life has never lived every single moment on this planet; has not lived every single moment in a different refraction, a different life, a different emotion. If you look at each of us, there are millions of different opportunities. That's why everyone is so different. If you look at Source as in the middle, and know that everyone is connected to Source, you understand that every person is allowing Source to live vicariously through them. Source can feel the emotions, can see the things we see, and can understand because of our brains. We are here to learn for ourselves and for Source. We can call the Source "G-d", or any other name: the Creator, the one who has the pulse on everything that is going on in the whole of existence. G-d might be the name of what is only the CEO of this space and he might have a higher somebody-else to talk to. Who knows? I don't know. I'm just doing my part.

We are all fulfilling the contract we made with our souls before we came down here. Whether or not I am happy and joyous every single moment of the day doesn't matter. It is the human essence of what I have chosen.

Cleaning out the Emotional Closet

Cleaning out the Emotional Closet

This week is the start of the Jewish New Year. In the Jewish tradition, the new year begins with The Ten Days of Awe. On the first day, G-d judges everyone and decides whether people are worthy of being written into the Book of Life or the Book of Death for the following year. Then, there are nine days to repent so that people can ensure that they are written into the Book of Life. At the end of the tenth day, the Books are sealed.

This idea of a Book of Life and a Book of Death was always a metaphor for me. I thought that this tradition provided a nice framework within which we would consider our previous year and see if we had room for improvement. We could begin changing our attitudes and actions so that we were better people in the coming year. But an actual Book? That was just a pretty idea until I realized that this might be a reference to the Akashic Records.

The Akashic Records are the energetic records of our souls. In addition to our ability to remember what we have done with our lives, there is also a written record in the ethers, and this record is for our soul's entire journey, not just for one lifetime. Our progress is recorded and serves as reference material. Our episodes which have created Karma, or healed Karma, are in these records. Several psychics told me that they can access these records and share this information during readings.

In the spirit of the Ten Days of Awe, I am doing my personal self-improvement work. Most of my life is very pleasant, but there is one area where I know I am out of balance. I've been working on this area my whole lifetime, but it seems that whenever I make progress, I slip backwards. "Two steps forward, one step back."

When I write this blog, it's easy to say that we should be kind to each other and we should always create positive energy. In the real world, it isn't always easy to live this way. There are people and situations which challenge us. The good news is that these challenges provide the situations we need for growth. If we weren't challenged, how would we grow? In my dream the other night, I received the message that I needed to "clean out my emotional closet." I needed to work on one particular area. I understand this philosophically, but it can be so hard!

As I struggle with certain situations, I am learning to look at a bigger picture. Do I really have so much anger and resentment because of 50 year old wounds? My anger is completely out of proportion to the current situation. I see that. I am beginning to back away from the present moment and wonder how many of these struggles are carried over from previous lifetimes? How many issues carry Karmic energy? The issues of this one lifetime cannot explain the amount of anger I have in certain situations. But if I look at this as a problem through multiple lifetimes, with this lifetime providing the opportunity to heal the situation, I can understand how things work . . . I think. I have a glorious opportunity to heal lifetimes of anger and resentment. I can see that.

Right now I'm struggling with how, exactly, we heal Karmic issues. The psychics tell me "love" is the answer. Flood the issue with love and light, then make course corrections in physical life. Each time things come up, choose how to react. While I can't choose my visceral response, I can choose my words and actions. I can live and learn, and deal better with this situation. And, I want more. I don't just want to learn better ways to deal with this issue, I actually want to heal it. I'm excited about this. Perhaps I can heal this energy and move on to something more exciting and rewarding.

I am open to ideas which people might have about healing Karma which has accrued over lifetimes. Any ideas? Please send them to me at or post them on the Facebook Page for My Psychic Search. Thanks!

April Cunningham

Early in August, when I was in CA, April Cunningham shared information on the life experiences which we choose before we are born on Earth.

Quote from a Psychic:

You cannot choose something because it is the experience you want to have. You have to choose experiences which elevate your soul. If you keep coming in saying, "I love the way it felt to be a martyr," or "I love the way it felt to be something else," you are not taking advantage of all of the elements of growth. We have to be rich. We have to be poor. We need to learn compassion. We need to learn to be strong if we do have and to share if we do have. How to make ends meet if we don't have and how to know abundance even if we don't have. All of these things are valuable.

This is like a scavenger hunt. Each lifetime we have a Divine plan to build our spirit. That is what is important. If you keep coming in as a white person every lifetime, you like being born to the same people all of the time, you like being born to a certain group, you become an in-breeder. You become a spiritual in-breeder. Everyone starts looking the same and acting the same.

We are supposed to experience every soul group which we are connected to if we are within the High Spirit realm. We are supposed to come here because our true life is spirit. This is where we come to grow and elevate as spirit. This is where we get to be everything and become our own unique being.

Energy, Spirituality and the Environment, Part II

Energy, Spirituality and the Environment, Part II

Today, I want to follow up on the discussion on Energy, Spirituality and the Environment which I posted on August 30. I am trying to figure out how to use psychic abilities and spiritual principles to heal the environment. So far, I've figured out that we need to generate positive personal energy; be conscious of our physical impacts on the Earth; stop worrying about problems and start focusing on solutions; and use our abilities to tap into innovative solutions to environmental issues.

Online, I've been talking with a few PRISMS (Psychics, Readers, Intuitives, Spiritual counselors, Mediums and Shamans) about this subject. One of these people mentioned the need to work with nature, not against it. He and his wife are best able to use their psychic abilities when they are in balance with the world around them. They encourage nature by planting native greenery and using basic methods of organic gardening for food. They also try to recycle as much as possible. These strategies help them find balance in their lives.

Another PRISM commented that we are co-creators of our world and we need to realize that we have this ability. Humans are made of the same particles and energies as are found throughout the Universe, not just on this planet. We are not separate from life beyond our physical bodies. We are just using our physical bodies for a human experience. The problem is getting people to believe that they are co-creators and CAN and DO have an impact on Mother Earth.

She suggested that when we take the time to send healing energy to the Earth, we can sometimes avert natural disasters. After earthquakes, some people are able to work with the energy of the oceans to stop the tsunamis which could have followed the earthquakes. The biggest hurdle is that most people have been taught to believe that they cannot do this kind of work and don't understand that when they work together they can have a huge impact.

One woman noted that we could all help heal our environment if we consciously sent love to the Earth as we opened ourselves psychically. It's easy to do and there is a symbiotic return of Earth energy back to us. She suggested that we all become much more aware of the mighty power we have within us to heal and to change.

One gentleman uses this approach when he opens to Reiki energy and works with spiritual healing modalities. He spends time during his sessions sending energy to Mother Earth in general and will sometimes focus on specific troubled areas. As he opens and grounds his energy for psychic readings, he focuses on transmuting released energy towards the Earth, with the goal of healing and replenishing Mother Earth.

In addition, his family incorporates natural living principles whenever they can. He believes that there is power in united intention and effort, and takes every opportunity to work simultaneously with others. Sometimes the simplest things yield the biggest results.

One PRISM mentioned that he uses Tai Chi movements as a spiritual practice to heal and to create energies which protect and renew the Earth. He dances at special times and can center energy in his physical movement while touching and retouching on beautiful thoughts of the Earth. While doing Tai Chi, he becomes a channel of healing energy and can send this energy into the Earth.

I keep thinking about the energetic environment in which we live. If we can infuse fresh, positive energy into the system, we can be helpful. It's just hard to believe that this kind of energy-channeling work could be both easy and effective. I asked, "Is sending love to the Earth really enough to make a physical difference?"

One woman answered, "Yes, Gail, sending love to Mother Earth is enough to make a difference! Sometimes I visualize her wrapped in Blue and other times I visualize Mother Earth being bathed in Christ Light as I feel intense love for her. I also thank her as I walk upon her. I ask permission to dig first and I thank her for her gifts of the soil. There are so many little things we can do. It is that easy. I smile every time I think of her and all that she offers; my gratitude is immense. I do believe that makes a difference. I always try to feel love, adoration, joy, etc., no matter what."

So simple.

If you have ideas to share on how you integrate your spiritual work with Earth healing, I would love to hear them. Please send them to me at, or post them on the Facebook page for "My Psychic Search." Thank you!

On Tuesdays, I usually do a short blog post. Today, I want to share with you something which I heard at a channeling event last month. My voice recorder only captured snippets of the message, but I think you'll get the gist of it. Here goes:

"We bring you the one idea of peace. Beyond all of the turmoil, and beneath the shifting, changing world, underlying all of the emotional concerns, there is peace. There may be challenging emotions, with beautiful emotions underneath. Release them. There, there is peace. When you see the world as beautiful from this place of peace, you are the world. You are your self. You are the chair, the room and everything else that matters. Be it. Live in peace and freedom, physical and emotional. . . . . the deep pool of peace in which you yourself long to be . . . love . . ."

Take a deep breath and see if you can find your underlying calm. Today, especially, it is important to find the peace and love in our lives as we remember the events of 9/11 and all of the subsequent consequences.

Psychics and PRISMS

Psychics and PRISMS

The word "Psychic" describes people who gather information using more than the five natural senses of sight, taste, hearing, smell, and touch. Psychics tap into unseen information sources and help people find answers to some of life's mysteries. Using more than the five natural senses is often called extra-sensory perception (ESP), but psychics rarely use this term.

Many of the people I interviewed were reluctant to identify themselves as psychics because this word has been associated with fakes. Instead, they called themselves "intuitives," "gifted," "readers," "healers," "Mediums," "Shamans," "channelers," "spiritual counselors," "empaths," "animal communicators," "energy workers" and "Light Workers." I think of them as "well connected" to other realms.

As I was writing the book, I needed umbrella terms to cover all of these specialties. I often use the word "psychic" as an umbrella term, but how many times could I write the word "psychic" without being boring? I needed another word so I came up with the term "PRISMS." It stands for Psychics, Readers, Intuitives, Spiritual Counselors, Mediums and Shamans." It also encompasses Healers, Energy Workers, etc. I believe that PRISMS take the light (energy and information from the other side), bend it through their brains, and shine the colors so everyone can see them.

Do you like the term "PRISMS"?

In honor of the birth of this acronym, I will be giving away small prisms with each book purchased this Sunday at my Book Talk at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop. During the presentation, I'll share my experiences with psychics, tell you why I wrote the book, share what I have learned about psychic abilities, and let you know how you can benefit from talking with a PRISM. After that, I'll be happy to answer your questions, sign your books and pass out prisms.

The Book Talk is scheduled for 1 p.m., Sunday, September 9, 2012, at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop on the southeastern corner of Orange Grove and Thornydale Roads.

See ya Sunday!

Pendant Winner, Upcoming Book Talk, SpiritsChild Tent Sale
Short Subjects

1) Pendant Drawing

The Winner of the Pendant Drawing is Darlene Carpenter! She has won a beautiful chakra-balancing pendant which is comprised of seven semi-precious gemstones on a natural, clear quartz crystal wand. Congratulations Darlene!

If you would like a pendant of your own, check out the Chakra Jewelry page of this website.

2) Book Talk on Sunday at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop

At 1 p.m. on Sunday, I'll be presenting the book, My Psychic Search: discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop.

Last Saturday, I was set up at SpiritsChild's Tent Sale and a couple of people purchased the book in advance of book talk. Really? They wanted to read the book prior to the talk so that they could ask questions about the material. Good for them! It never occurred to me that people (other than me) would want to prepare for the Book Talk.

If you're interested in the book and all that I have learned, SpiritsChild is on the southeastern corner of Orange Grove and Thornydale Roads. If you want to purchase a book before the talk, they are for sale at SpiritsChild, at Carefree Computers on Ina Road, at Antigone Books on 4th Avenue, on this website, and through

3) SpiritsChild Tent Sale

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to chat with me at SpiritsChild's Tent Sale last weekend. Turns out that the "tent sale" included psychic readers, Reiki Masters and cotton candy.

I talked with lots of people at SpiritsChild who have had amazing life experiences. Let me provide a few examples:

I spoke with one guy who can smell a certain scent and know that someone close to him is going to die. Even if the person is across the Atlantic Ocean, this guy can smell that odd smell and know that something is going to happen. He doesn't know who is going to die, but he knows it will be someone close to him. Think about that for a moment. At least three people have told me that they know when someone is going to die because they can smell it. Two people told me that they can identify the soon-to-be-deceased. The Universe finds ways to get these messages to us so we can either be prepared, or assist the person who is going to pass.

Then, I spoke with a young woman who was walking in the desert a few months ago when a black hole opened in front of her and she started receiving mountains of information. Suddenly, she knew things. She thinks she will be a Shaman, but her gifts are just now opening so she doesn't yet know where she will go. What a life adventure!

I also spoke with a scientist who has spent years studying energy healing. She knows many other scientists who are working to bring science and spirituality closer together.

Finally, one of the people I met at the Tent Event asked me if I had been overwhelmed by the idea of writing a book. He wanted to write a book too, but was intimidated. I told him, "No." Writing the book was a lot of work, but it wasn't nearly as overwhelming as marketing the book! We each have unique skills and talents. I love interviewing and writing, and I hope the rest of the work just falls into place.

See you Sunday!
