Monday, December 31, 2012



2013. We survived the Mayan apocalypse and we're turning the page on a fresh new year. What should we do? Can we create the lives we want? There are so many demands on our time. Can we meet those demands and still find time for the things which bring us joy?

A few weeks ago, I was talking to a "Visionary Artist" who has psychic abilities. She told me that when she sits down to draw, she never knows what will come through. She has her physical art supplies and she waits for the non-physical images to appear on her paper. She is a conduit for the drawings which are given to clients to help them understand their mystical connection. She works with the Universe to co-create the pictures.

My work is to shed light on what psychics do and how they are able to do it. My goal is to help people understand that there is a way to connect the inspirational, invisible, universe with the physical world. Psychics are the bridge between these worlds.

I do a lot of interviewing, transcribing and writing. These are the physical elements of my work. But I can't do this job unless I have psychics to interview. Somehow, I have to find psychics who are interested in being part of My Psychic Search Project. I haven't ever sat down and said, "I want to interview two astrologers, a pet psychic, and a Tarot card reader." Instead, I have just let people show up. I have interviewed random psychics and each interview has been terrific. During 2012, two psychics told me that the interviews were being orchestrated from the other side. Psychics really didn't show up randomly. Our souls have had to agree on the other side to do this work. This is my version of co-creating My Psychic Search. I am open to the psychics who are brought to me by the Universe, and I am willing to do the physical work of interviewing, transcribing and writing.

Do you see co-creation working in your life too? Can you pinpoint ways that the Universe is setting up your opportunities and the ways that you are taking advantage of these events? 2013 will provide new choices for forward movement. I'm excited about the future and I hope you are too!

Happy New Year!

What do Psychics Do?

Well, the world didn't end on December 21 . . . so I'll be set up to talk with you at Tucson's Psychic Fair on January 6, 2013. The psychics told me that December 21 would mark the beginning of a new era of spiritual curiosity and enlightenment. I also heard that the energy and information would be the strongest from December 21 - 23. Personally, I was a little disappointed that I didn't have an epiphany during that time. Did anyone else receive insights?

I want to remind everyone with a new Kindle e-reader that the book, My Psychic Search: discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives, is available on Amazon's website. If you don't have a Kindle, but would like to read the book on your computer, Kindle provides a computer-reading application. For the rest of us, the book can be ordered as a paperback through this site and through Amazon. Let's start 2013 with solid information.

Earlier this year, I added a page to this website entitled, What do Psychics Do? Today, I want to re-post that information and expand the section. Since writing the original essay, I have interviewed several psychics who offer services which were not listed.

What do people with psychic abilities have to offer?

Psychics, Readers, Intuitives, Mediums, Shamans and energy workers can offer a fresh take on events in a client's life. Just as a person would talk to a wise friend and see if the friend had insights which could help them, they can talk to a psychic or Intuitive and see if the reader can help them move forward in their life. Most psychic readings are not like a bolt of life-changing information. They are more like a gentle sprinkling of wisdom which helps re-frame the issues being examined. Talking to a psychic reader brings in a different perspective. If someone listens with an open mind, they can see issues in a new way and come up with strategies for dealing with problems. Psychics offer the opportunity for people to understand who they are, what is happening in their lives and their choices for moving forward.

Psychics can explore situations, describe options and help people choose their best course of action. Psychics don't choose for them, people make their own choices.

In addition, talking with psychics can open minds to a world of potential. There is comfort in hearing that people are not alone in this world; that there is a greater picture of humanity and that there are reasons why people are here on Earth. Magic, mystery and a world of wonder do exist.

In most cases, clients come to psychics. However, some psychics can help people wherever the people are located. The person doesn't have to make an appointment. The psychic might give a message at a coffee shop or at a gym. It can happen anywhere.

And, sometimes in the middle of the night, while asleep, a psychic can help a person in need. Their soul can fly to the person who needs assistance.

The people who were interviewed for this Project provide the following types of services:

Psychic Readings

A client can sit down with a reader and the reader can access information about that client and help the client understand the larger picture of what is happening in their life. Psychics are often asked about love, health, jobs, finances, and life path. Information from a psychic can provide a new perspective on an issue and can help a person clearly see their choices. Each choice shapes the future and psychics can help people understand how to create the future they want by making the choices which keep them on the path to the future they seek.


Many psychics teach workshops to help people boost their intuition.


Several of the psychics are life coaches. They use their intuitive gifts to help people determine their goals, then give these clients the tools to achieve their dreams.

Tool Provision

One psychic told me that when people tell her about their issues, she knows which tools to give them. She shares information so people understand that as they develop their own gifts and paths, they don't have to suffer. They can have the life they want. The tools help people return to their natural state by learning to work with others, give to themselves, be more understanding, be less judgmental, look at the big picture, and not be overwhelmed.

Clearing and manifesting tools can help people clear obstacles, blocks, and challenges, and can help them progress in their lives. Tools can also raise a person's energy vibration.

Energy Work

Each person has an energy field which encompasses their physical body. Energy workers clean blockages out of this field, bring in fresh energy, and keep energy flowing through the body.

Sometimes, negative energies (or entities) attach to people. People will feel an unusual negativity. Psychics can remove the negative energies and entities. Negative entities can be sent into the Light and blockages can be cleared so that people can relax and ground themselves.


A client can sit down with a healer who can help them draw positive energy into their body so that they can facilitate their own healing. This can be physical and/or emotional healing. Sometimes the healing doesn't cure the illness, but helps the client cope with the illness, or make peace with the problem.

Crossing Ghosts to the Other Side

When people die, before their spirit can cross over, they have to come to terms with the life they have lived. When they can't make peace, they can't cross over. For example, when people die in battle, or have a traumatic car accident and are not prepared for death, they may become stuck. Psychics can communicate with ghosts, witness their trauma, help them understand what has happened, remind them that they are no longer bound to the Earth, and encourage them to move into the Light.

Evidence of an Energetic Universe

Many psychics provide evidence for the larger energetic universe in which we live. Bringing in messages which the psychics could not have known without an ability to contact Spirit Guides and deceased relatives, can show a connection to an unseen world. The woman who works with table tipping told me that the reason she demonstrates table tipping is to show people that they have a connection to their Spirit Guides and deceased relatives. The woman who provides "Spirit Drawings," says that there is something in each picture which provides evidence that it came from somewhere else. Many phenomena happen with these drawings. Information which she could not have known shows up in the drawings .

Do psychics all do the same thing or do they have specialties?

In the world of psychic connection, there are many specialties. Some psychics do it all, but most psychics have an area of expertise. Some psychics predict the future, while others provide inspirational messages (but not facts), communicate with the dead, communicate with entities who are not in this physical world, communicate with animals and/or help with healing. Other psychics predict financial markets and international issues.

Please let me know if you had an exceptional December 21, 2012 experience.

Christmas for Mystics

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannuka, Happy whichever-holiday-you-celebrate. I found this lovely blog post by Marianne Williamson and I thought you might enjoy it today. It is from the website


Christmas for Mystics

The holidays are only holy if we make them so.

Otherwise, the assault of modernity -- from crass consumerism to a 24-hour news cycle to the compulsivity of the wired world -- wrecks whatever we have left of our nervous systems, making the true spiritual meaning of Christmas seem as distant as the furthest star. It's only when we consciously carve out a space for the holy -- in our heads, our hearts and our lifestyles -- that the deeper mysteries of the season can reveal themselves.

The holidays are a time of spiritual preparation, if we allow them to be. We're preparing for the birth of our possible selves, the event with which we have been psychologically pregnant all our lives. And the labor doesn't happen in our fancy places; there is never "room in the Inn," or room in the intellect, for the birth of our authentic selves. That happens in the manger of our most humble places, with lots of angels, i.e. Thoughts of God, all around.

Something happens in that quiet place, where we're simply alone and listening to nothing but our hearts. It's not loneliness, that aloneness. It's rather the solitude of the soul, where we are grounded more deeply in our own internal depths. Then, having connected more deeply to God, we're able to connect more deeply with each other. Our connection to the divine unlocks our connection to the universe.

According to the mystical tradition, Christ is born into the world through each of us. As we open our hearts, he is born into the world. As we choose to forgive, he is born into the world. As we rise to the occasion, he is born into the world. As we make our hearts true conduits for love, and our minds true conduits for higher thoughts, then absolutely a divine birth takes place. Who we're capable of being emerges into the world, and weaknesses of the former self begin to fade. Thus are the spiritual mysteries of the universe, the constant process of dying to who we used to be as we actualize our divine potential.

We make moment-by-moment decisions what kind of people to be -- whether to be someone who blesses, or who blames; someone who obsesses about past and future, or who dwells fully in the present; someone who whines about problems, or who creates solutions. It's always our choice what attitudinal ground to stand on: the emotional quicksand of negative thinking, or the airstrip of spiritual flight.

Such choices are made in every moment, consciously or unconsciously, throughout the year. But this is the season when we consider the possibility that we could achieve a higher state of consciousness, not just sometimes but all the time. We consider that there has been one -- and the mystical tradition says there have also been others -- who so embodied his own divine spark that he is now as an elder brother to us, assigned the task of helping the rest of us do the same. According to A Course in Miracles, he doesn't have anything we don't have; he simply doesn't have anything else. He is in a state that is still potential in the rest of us. The image of Jesus has been so perverted, so twisted by institutions claiming to represent him. As it's stated in the Course, "Some bitter idols have been made of him who came only to be brother to the world." But beyond the mythmaking, doctrine and dogma, he is a magnificent spiritual force. And one doesn't have to be Christian to appreciate that fact, or to fall on our knees with praise and thanks at the realization of its meaning. Jesus gives to Christmas its spiritual intensity, hidden behind the ego's lure into all the wild and cacophonous sounds of the season. Beyond the nativity scenes, beyond the doctrinal hoopla, lies one important thing: the hope that we might yet become, while still on this earth, who we truly are.

Then we, and the entire world, will know peace.

Meet a Psychic - Richard Schickel

Here we are. The last day before the fateful December 21, 2012 date. Let's see what happens tomorrow. I am hoping for a spiritual opening of energies. I am hoping that last week's school shooting marked the end of a violent era. I'm hoping for good things for all of us.

On January 6, 2013, I'll be set up at our local Psychic Fair at the Windmill Inn in Tucson, Arizona. If you want to meet a psychic and find out more about your life in 2013, come down and talk with one. If you want a book or chakra-balancing jewelry, I'll be there for you.

And speaking of "meeting a psychic," let's do that today. Let's get back to the roots of this Project: what it is like to be psychic. Today, we are meeting Richard Schickel.

Meet a Psychic: Richard Schickel - Psychic, Medical Intuitive, Healer

Richard Schickel has survived three near-death experiences (NDEs). After he turned 40 and had a healing, his gifts opened up. He found that he could speak in tongues and understand what he was saying. Richard is a medical intuitive and a healer. He assists with past-life hypnotherapy, talks to pets, sees auras and performs exorcisms and cord cuttings. Cords are energetic attachments between people.

When clients come to Richard, they put their hands on top of Richard's hands so that their hand chakras connect. Richard connects with each person's energy and understands what the person is thinking. He sees the client's energy and knows what is in this person's mind and heart. He sees the truth even if the client is lying to himself. He provides past-life connections, sees spirits around clients, sees auras and hears voices. However, just because he receives all this information doesn't mean that he can share it. It can be too much to share with a client all at once.

Richard is also a "hand trembler." He can put his hand over someone's body and do a scan. If his hand trembles, he is feeling trapped energy. Because he is a medical intuitive, he sees and feels medical issues. He has to be cautious about what he says and remember to refer people to doctors. However, Richard is also a healer. In order to facilitate healing, he sometimes has to guide clients back in time and help them finish off past lives. If people can release their anger and fear, healing can take place. According to Richard, anger and fear are the basis for disease.

Richard works with the Higher Spirits, the energy of G-d, the Ascended Masters and a group of Spirit Guides. They come in at different times for different people. They tell him what he needs to know, when he needs to know it, for each particular person.

According to Richard, Heaven is whatever people want it to be. It is spiritual enlightenment. It is a wonderful, peaceful place. However, after a while, souls feel drawn to more learning. It becomes boring to be in perfection all the time. At that time, souls can chose to reincarnate. On the other side, surrounded by perfection, it is harder to learn lessons. On Earth, the lessons are harder, but it is easier to learn them.

Richard doesn't see any conflict between the concepts of Karma and G-d. He believes that Karma is used to burn off negative issues so that people can get closer to the G-d energy. People can only deal with a few issues during each lifetime. People need many lifetimes to learn all of their lessons. It's like people are rough diamonds. They need to polish one facet of their diamond, then return to polish another facet.

Richard's mission on Earth is to wake people up. He has had "normal" lives on Earth before, but this life is different.

If you want to know more about Richard, you can check out his website.

That's all for today. Enjoy tomorrow: December 21, 2012, the end of the world as we know it. In fact, if anything interesting happens to you tomorrow, send an e-mail to me and let me know what is going on. My e-mail address is

On Sunday night, I pulled the winning name for a chakra-balancing pendant and the winner is: Trisha L.! Congratulations, Trisha!

Both of my daughters are home from college for the holidays. It's so nice to have them here. Our house is full of life. With all of the grief over the Sandy Hook shootings, I'm doubly-relishing the joy of having my girls safely home.

On Friday night, December 21, 2012, our neighbor is hosting a holiday party and we will all be together to discover whatever December 21 brings. Perhaps, there will be a turning point for civilization. Perhaps, there will be a glimpse of enlightenment. The mass shootings in our country are not just about gun control and mental illness, but are also a reflection of the way our society glamorizes guns and the use of guns to enforce "justice" outside of the legal system. It's the "wild west" attitude of movies, video games and people who see more guns as the solution to gun violence. I prefer to live in a "civilized west" where there are civil answers to difficult situations. I don't know how to stop gun violence, but people brighter than me, and more familiar with the issues, should be able to figure this out. The rest of us need to provide the moral and political support for this work. Let's hope that the 2012 energies help us to find creative solutions to big problems.

As Cynthia Rae (one of the interviewed psychics) said:

"There aren't very many people on this Earth who have joy every day of their lives; who get up and skip. If they are doing that, they are not experiencing, they are not learning. All of the knowledge already exists on the other side. Here, we are learning, we are taking knowledge in. Every leaf we look at is different from another leaf. Each of us is different. We are here to experience things. We each have the opportunity to affect other people's lives and whether we do it in a positive way, or a negative way, is up to them and up to us."

Let's strive to affect each other in positive, civil, just, ways.


BTW, anyone else notice that we had Superstorm Sandy, then we had Sandy Hook? It's like a double dose of "insandity." See, I managed to end this blog post on a lighter note. :)

Where do we go from here?

I've been reading a variety of articles relating to the terrible violence at Sandy Hook Elementary School. As humans, we first react to violence with sorrow and empathy. Then, sometimes, our sorrow turns to outrage and anger. While it is true that there is much to be done to prevent this kind of murder in the future, it's best to stay in a place of compassion as we figure out what needs to be done.

I found a channeled message on-line which I felt was helpful and I hope you also find it helpful. Here is the link: Akasha Healing Studio.

My heart is breaking for all of the people involved in the massacre at the elementary school in Connecticut. I can talk about Karma and the afterlife, but these ideas can't offset the pain as I think about all of the lives which have been impacted today. The song phrase going through my brain is, "Oh, Night Divine." I can only hope that love is pouring into the world to help everyone deal with this tragedy. My heart is breaking.

Dutiful Souls, Difficult Lives

Dutiful Souls, Difficult Lives

Today's post presents ideas from a deep conversation I had with April Cunningham, a CA Medium, a few months ago. She explained some broad aspects of Karma to me, then told me how some people are using this lifetime to wipe their Karma slate clean. I found this to be an intriguing explanation of why some people are experiencing difficult lives. Frankly, I don't understand all that she told me and I realize that these ideas are just pieces of the puzzle of life on Earth. If you understand things better than I do, feel free to e-mail your thoughts to me.

Catching up with Karma

Each lifetime, we come to Earth to have new experiences and to develop ourselves. Over multiple lifetimes, we have every experience (e.g., rich and poor, as well as every ethnicity). April Cunningham doesn't think about our experiences as "lessons" because we are the ones who set up the scenarios. Before we are born, we agree to a Divine Plan (for the outline of our life) and we also have free will (for the details of our life). We choose experiences which promote our growth.

During some lifetimes, we behave badly, or cause harm to others, and we accumulate negative Karma. Later in that lifetime, or in a future lifetime, we strive to re-balance the negative Karma. This re-balancing can take many forms, but it often means that we live the experience of someone doing to us, what we did to someone else. For example, if we caused a car accident in one lifetime, the next lifetime we might be the victim of a car accident. We live the experience from both sides.

When people are cruel to others, it's easy to see how they could create negative Karma. Sometimes souls come in, ignore their Divine Plan, and enjoy their free will without looking at the consequences of their actions. Some of these people hurt other people, for example, they abuse children. These people may accumulate negative Karma.

Other times, it is not so easy to understand how negative Karma is accumulated. For example, some spirits come in, see the harm being done to others and, instead of doing their own work, they help the people who are being hurt. Of course, it's important to help people in need. However, these souls are giving up the opportunity to work on their own experiences. As they are "doing the right thing," they are sacrificing their own spiritual progress, and this can create negative Karma. This is a complicated view of how negative Karma can be built. April calls these people "dutiful souls."

Is there a way to tell the difference between people who are helping others and building positive Karma (or clearing old, negative Karma), and people who are acting out of duty and building negative Karma? I don't have a clear answer. It probably has to do with how things were set up before these folks were born. If they came here to have the experience of helping others, maybe that builds positive Karma? If they came here for some other experience (for example, to grow food) and gave that up to help others, maybe that builds negative Karma? Sorry, I'm not perfectly clear on how all of this works.

Anyway, when April contemplates dutiful souls she tells me, "Those are the times we are in and we are closing that down right now. That time is over."

She says:

"There are souls which are dutiful. Unfortunately Karma is Karma regardless of whether it is for the higher good or not. If you keep coming back in life and doing the same things in life, even if it is routine and it is your free will to do for the higher good, it becomes harmful. If you think, ‘Wow, those people are taking way too much, I have to go there and help.' What happens is that it becomes Karmic. It doesn't matter if Karma is developed from something negative or something positive, these actions still replace our growth. It replaces a piece of us that we need to develop into something else. What has to happen now is that everyone is working on this."

Difficult Lives

April noted that clearing Karma can lead to a difficult life, especially when someone tries to clear lifetimes of previous negative impacts during a single lifetime. Some souls believe that they need to clear all of their old Karma during this lifetime because of the changes which will occur as part of 2012.

April explained:

"On the other side, people think, ‘Put me in there and let me get this. I'm so off balance and we are in the end of times and the beginning of times. We are in the Alpha and the Omega right now. I want to get this. I want to have a good idea how this works.' They want to clear their Karma. However, people can be harder on themselves than anyone else would be on them. They set up horrific life experiences because they think that these experiences clear their Karma."

According to April, it's very easy to make those choices when a person is in spirit. Souls think, "I'll get through it. Look what this will pay for. I've got forever." They think that this will be one short lifetime in all of eternity. But, once they get here, they are miserable. They forget that they set up the circumstances and they wonder, "How could G-d do this to me?"

April said, "It didn't happen that way. These people are so hard on themselves, but they thought they had to do all of this to catch up." This is the lifetime which some people are living right now.

I'm guessing that by now, you've got as many questions as I do. Next time I talk with April, we will continue this discussion. In the meantime, this blog post may have given you an expanded view of life experiences and a few new concepts to ponder.

Several weeks ago, I asked people to send their questions to me so that I could ask Pam, the Psychic, for answers. I want to apologize to all the question-askers because it has taken so long to get their answers . . . and I still don't have them. Pam and I haven't been able to get together yet. Between all of our activities, the holidays, and an illness, we just haven't seen each other. Your questions have not been forgotten and I will try to ask your questions as soon as I can.


I want to remind everyone that tomorrow's date is 12/12/12 and, according to the psychics, there will be an expanded opening of energy. After tomorrow, there will be a lull, but things will really open up on December 21. One of the psychics recently told me that the strongest energy will be available from December 21 to December 23. She suggested that people write down their ideas during this three-day period. For some reason, ideas which have not been recorded will be forgotten.

This psychic also told me that the energy coming to Earth will be especially strong in the areas where the Mayans used to live. For example, people in Arizona and Mexico will feel this energy intensely and will receive clear information.

Another Light Worker, Raquel Spencer, wrote on her website:

"You are the master of your reality. Often we are our own worst enemy. 2013 and beyond propel us into a whole new level of Light. Be careful and mindful of what you are creating!

"There are multiple probabilities and bands of light frequency available to each and every one of you. However, your personal frequency and conscious thought determine your ability to utilize and connect to the new frequency of co-creative light. If your own thoughts and frequency are not in resonance or alignment with the higher frequency, the energies which are becoming available to manifest and co-create at the next level will still be inaccessible.

"We are moving into a whole new level of Light which is becoming available to work with. The grand alignment simply means that frequencies which were not previously available to humanity because of the [Earth's] placement within the cosmos, will now be accessible. However, just because they are available, doesn't mean you will be able to access and utilize them.

"Once again, lets revisit the analogy . . . you can't expect to utilize the 4G network from a rotary phone. Oil and water still won't mix. Your frequency, thought waves and patterns must be in resonance with the new frequencies of light information to utilize the potential they will provide."


Events will be held around the world to mark the 12/12/12 date and the 12/21/12 date. It will be interesting to see where all of this leads. I'm hoping it leads to an expanded state of consciousness where we will be able to access fresh ideas and insights.

On Thursday, I'm going to continue this discussion with a look at Karma clearing.

Space Station Earth

I'll be giving a short book talk Saturday morning from 10 a.m. until noon at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Shop in Tucson, Arizona. I'll be there with several other authors and I would love to see you. I'll happily sign books and help you find gifts for all the people on your list. Hint: My Psychic Search book makes a wonderful holiday gift.

Space Station Earth

Do you remember when men went to the moon? Okay, more recent event: are you aware that there are people on a Space Station orbiting Earth? Yes? Great. When these people go into space, they have everything they need to survive. In addition, they have NASA scientists and engineers standing behind them and helping them work through whatever issues arise. A supportive, behind-the-scenes network exists, guiding the astronauts on the Space Station. Can you see where I'm going with this?

Just like astronauts on the moon and at the Space Station, the rest of us also live in a supportive system where guidance is available as we need it. For many of us, the guidance is subtle. It is provided by unseen Spirit Guides and by our network of friends on "the other side."

Back to the Space Station. Getting the messages to the crew would be pretty easy if one astronaut received messages from one Earth-bound engineer at a time. It would be more complicated if twenty or a hundred engineers were speaking at once. Here's the parallel with the psychic realm: some psychics tell me that they work with individual Spirit Guides and energies who relay messages, while other psychics tell me that they work with hundreds of entities each moment. Sound overwhelming?

In November, I interviewed Jesse Ann Nichols George. She told me that she often hears multiple voices at once. She can hear anywhere from five to fifty conversations at one time. She has her own Spirit Guides giving her information. She also has energies, spirits and a long lineage of psychic ancestors popping up to share information. In addition, she hears from all of her client's Spirit Guides and relatives too. Then, there are other spirits who show up to help.

Jesse says this is similar to going on-line and having twenty people instant-messaging you, while fifty e-mails are coming in, along with a hundred text messages. It's more than a mind can process. Sometimes she has had to stop in the middle of a reading to tell everyone be quiet for a moment. She has to hone in on the most helpful messages to give to her client.

People often think that being psychic is easy. They don't realize how much is going on behind the scenes.

Interested in Jesse? Here's a completely different insight from our interview:

Changing Names, Changing Lives

In 2006, Jesse legally changed her name. She told me that any time people have a legal name change, it shifts their energy. She had never felt like her birth name and had always connected to a different name. When she changed her name, it shifted her numerology and astrology. It changed her vibration. When a name is legally changed, the person takes on a new birth date. Once it is legal, the shift occurs.

Jesse noted that many women change their names when they get married, then take on a different vibration. Couples may do beautifully dating. Then, they marry, the woman changes her name and she takes on a different vibration. Her birth name becomes a past influence instead of a current influence.

According to Jesse, when a woman changes her name, a beautiful relationship may stop working within a year or two. It takes a full year for her vibration to shift. The longer she has the new name, the stronger the attributes become. This can be why life challenges change. Men don't change their names, so they don't shift. But we often hear men say, "She's not the person I married." It's true. She's not. The relationship has changed. It could be equally as good, better, or more-challenging.

Still interested in Jesse? You can discover more about Jesse on her website at She also has an on-line radio show on Friday nights called "Activating Compassion in the Midnight Hour."

That's all for today. Come visit me at SpiritsChild Saturday morning!

The Psychic Life

The Psychic Life . . . it's just different

I have psychic friends and sometimes our chats are unbelievable. Last weekend, I dropped some books off at Richard Schickel's house and we had a chance to chat. Richard is one of the psychics who was interviewed for this Project. We talked about work, kids, and life in general; but, as we were chatting, Richard suddenly asked, "Is your daughter getting married?" I said, "No." He continued, "I think she might be getting married soon." Really? That's a surprise to me. We'll have to see how this works out.

Later, we were talking about our work when he mentioned, "Your dad just popped in over your right shoulder. Has he passed?" "Yes." "Well, he says . . . It is absolutely delightful to intersperse messages from our loved ones with our daily chit-chat. Over the next hour, Richard and I talked about my living and deceased relatives with equal ease. He told me what was going on as he communicated with people on the other side. Then, I filled in with what I knew. We laughed so hard. It's amazing what comes through.

Many people see psychics only a few times over a few years. Their sessions are serious. They need answers. When I go for a psychic reading, I also want to mull over the issues in my life. This is the way things need to be.

However, when I am having lunch with a psychic friend, or chatting over coffee, it's great fun to hear from whomever pops in. There is such a warmth and depth to these conversations that I really enjoy them.

It's not all clear, it's not all accurate, but there is something there. Just like the rest of us, psychics need to focus when working. They can't be too scattered in their thoughts. On the other hand, when they are relaxed, chatting, open to messages and there's no pressure on them, sometimes people (who I can't see) pop in to join the conversation.

If you want to know more about what it's like to be psychic, come join me at SpiritChild's Author Talk on Saturday morning, December 8. Along with several other authors, I will talk about my work from 10 a.m. until noon. SpiritsChild is located on the southeast corner of Orange Grove and Thornydale Roads in Tucson, AZ.
