Announcement: The next Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be this Sunday at the DoubleTree Inn on South Alvernon Road in Tucson, AZ. The Fair will run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. I plan to be there and I think I'll run a sale on Chakra-Balancing Jewelry. Come join me. :)

Meet a Psychic: Aitreyia

Aitreyia is the well-known local psychic who owns SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop in Tucson, AZ. Since 2002, SpiritsChild has provided tools, classes, and workshops which build a support system for people who are on their spiritual journey.

Since childhood, Aitreyia has had an affinity for angels. She came from a dysfunctional family, and wasn't certain what her angelic connection meant. Around 1980, she learned to read Tarot cards and this ability opened a new world of experiences.

Aitreyia says that when she started in the psychic world, it was a rough energy. Eventually, she integrated spiritual awareness into her psychic practice and everything changed. She learned to communicate with Spirit Guides, angels, archangels, and Master Teachers. They assist her when reading for clients. How does this work? In order to convey messages, she talks to her Spirit Guides and angels, and to her client's Guides, angels, and spirit. Aitreyia has telepathy with the Guides and angels, and knows the words to share with customers. In addition, she often channels messages directly from the angels and Guides to her clients.

Aitreyia also communicates with deceased loved ones, but often finds that their advice isn't as useful as the advice from Guides and angels.

When she first starting seeing angels, she saw them as tall, short, gold, or blue. Now, she sees their higher form as a ball, or a beam, of light.

Aitreyia has survived two near-death experiences. She is also a "walk-in." When a little girl was strangled at only three years of age, Aitreyia's spirit was able to enter the body and continue that little girl's life. The decision to walk into that body was made with Jesus and an angel by her side.

In the 1990s, Aitreyia ran an angel shop in downtown Tucson. She provided readings for clients. After that shop closed, she traveled. Wherever she went, she provided readings and energy work. Then, in 2002, she opened the new shop.

At night, Aitreyia takes classes with her Guides. This is especially important when she has several healing sessions scheduled the following day. The Guides teach her new techniques to assist clients. While Aitreyia is considered a healer, she doesn't think of herself that way. She provides the energy which allows people to change themselves. Their spirit has to want the change.

In the last few years, her work has evolved to focus more on mental illness. She is here to eradicate mental illness when that is desired by Spirit. Many spiritual teachers are helping her learn the techniques she needs for this work.

Aitreyia feels that her primary role on Earth is to help with the evolution of humanity.

If you are interested in reading more about Aitreyia's life story and her work, our interview is now available as a 99 cent Kindle e-book. You can find it by clicking here.

In addition, I am putting our interview on the "Featured Interview" page of this website. Anyone who is interested can read the entire interview for free until November 12. I hope you enjoy discovering the real life of a psychic.

If you are interested in getting a psychic reading or energy work, you can contact Aitreyia at SpiritsChild Metaphysical Gift Shop, 520-744-4402.

Developing the Confidence to Read for Others

In honor of Halloween, I was looking for a good ghost story, but most of the psychics didn't share ghost stories. So, I found an angel story instead.

Quote from a Psychic - Developing the Confidence to Read for Others

I asked Kermie Wohlenhaus, "What are the pluses and minuses to being psychic? To working as a psychic?" This was part of her answer:

One challenging part was developing the confidence to give messages. At first, I resisted doing angel readings. Angels were showing up at the grocery store and at the mall. I would have to say to someone, "Excuse me ma'am, there is an angel behind you. Would you like to hear what they have to say?" To step up to the plate and do this was embarrassing. The person would usually look at me, hesitate, and say, "Well, okay." I would tell them what the angel said and they would start crying, then give me a big hug. They would thank me and tell me that they had desperately needed to hear the message. Those experiences gave me confidence that what I was hearing and saying was an important truth, so I told the angels that I would be open to giving readings.

In the beginning, you wrestle with it. You wonder if it is clear enough. As long as I am being exact about what I am hearing, and I am speaking the truth as I hear it, I've done well.

The angels may tell me something to tell their "charge" (they call their human their "charge") and I will ask, "Are you sure you want me to tell them that?" The person doesn't realize that I am having a conversation with the angels as I am talking to them. I may be talking aloud to the person about a particular point the angels are sharing, while having a different conversation with the angels as I try to understand the message clearly.

Sometimes, angels express their ideas very quickly. If the angels say something a bit more difficult, I ask for another, or a more-detailed way, of saying what they mean. We all have filters, and I never want to interpret messages my way. I just keep asking until I receive clarity and details. Clarity and information help my clients.

For example, the angels might show me a watermelon. I'll ask what that means and the angels will say, "There are as many opportunities for this person as there are seeds in a watermelon." I don't interpret. I don't say flippantly, "Oh, you are going on a picnic." That would be me. People don't want to hear from me, they want to hear from their angels. I just keep asking and interviewing the angels for more and more information. They are always kind and give as many details as I want. I love working with them. They are SO creative and I learn so much.

P.S. The next Psychic Fair will be this Sunday, November 1, 2015 at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, AZ.

Following Psychic Advice in a Life or Death Situation

Following Psychic Advice in a Life or Death Situation

Early in August, a psychic told me that me that three things were going to happen in the next few months. One happened almost immediately (a crisis in another part of my family), one doesn't look like it is going to happen (a wedding), and I am in the midst of the third prediction: the psychic told me to get all the legal documents in order regarding my elderly mother. She told me that by the end of September, my mother would experience a huge mental decline.

I followed the advice, made sure the legal papers were ready, and carried them wherever I went.

What happened? By the third week in September, my mother began calling me at odd hours and telling me she didn't know what day of the week it was. She was confused. When I would call her at two in the afternoon, she would ask why I had called so early? She thought it was two in the morning. She couldn't tell day from night. I went to her apartment and found her confused, uneasy, exhausted, restless, with no appetite. Because she didn't feel well, she had stopped taking her medications.

I asked if she wanted to go to the doctor or to the hospital. She said, "No. I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow."

The third day that I visited her, she sparked, came out of her confusion, sat up and told me, "This is the end of my life. I know it." Then she proceeded to clear-headedly tell me about her important possessions and where they should go. I was stunned.

I went online and searched for "Signs of Dying." One of the most-prominent indicators was someone saying that they knew it was the end of their life.

I had recently heard a channeled message about treating the dying with dignity and compassion, and allowing them to make choices (posted to this blog September 29). It was a clear directive and I followed it, but I also contacted her doctor.

Turns out, Mom had a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). In elderly patients, UTIs often lead to confusion. For two weeks, I stayed with my mother, helping her feel comfortable, trying to give her her medications, and getting her back on track. Meanwhile, Mom continued to develop signs of the end of life.

Some people say, "If I knew I only had two weeks to live, I would eat chocolate, cake, and candy. I would allow myself all my guilty pleasures." Well, my mother, who always attempted to eat a healthy diet, only wanted chocolate and carrot cake . . . mostly chocolate.

Then, twelve days after announcing that this was the end of her life she told me, "Today's the day. I'm going to see my parents this afternoon." I believed her, but I didn't know what to do. Flustered, I called her doctor and asked, "Do I need to call hospice? What do I do?" He sent a nurse to assess the situation.

What happened? Did she pass away? No. After two weeks of my care, she went to a rehab hospital to get back on her meds and to regain her strength. Then, I moved her to an apartment in an Assisted Living community where she could get the help she needed.

All of these arrangements required the papers which the psychic had told me to have ready.

The Intuitive had predicted a large loss of mental capacity. That happened, but now that Mom is back on her meds, she may recover. She may return to the level of function she had in August. It's possible.

However, it's also possible that her slide will continue. The psychic told me a few more things and I'm waiting to see if her predictions pan out.

Meanwhile, I'm relying on the spiritual advice I have heard through the years:

Death is nothing to fear. It's a natural progression.

Assist people by giving them choices. Empower them.

No outsider knows when the end of life will come. This is an agreement between the individual and G-d. A person's Higher Self may be aware of the timing. The rest of us have to proceed as best we can without knowing what might happen.

It's really hard to know which plans to make when we don't know what the future holds. Thank goodness, a psychic gave me a clue.

Stay tuned. I'll let you know what happens and I'll let you know who better predicts Mom's future: an Intuitive or an MD.

If you have a sense of what might come, please send an e-mail to me at I want to be prepared.

Receiving "The Gift"
Quote from a Psychic

There are many ways to develop intuitive abilities. Today, I want to share Maryushka's story. She had always had some abilities, but her gift was enhanced in a surprising way. I asked Maryushka, "Does this talent run in your family?"

She replied:

"Yes, in every generation someone has it; someone is able to do what I am able to do.

"My father's first cousin was the person in the generation before me. The weekend she died, I had no idea she was in the hospital. I went through a series of psychic experiences. I was in my 20s. I wasn't a reader, just a person experiencing what was happening. I kept getting psychic hits. You've heard of psychic hits? A psychic hit is when you are standing up and you literally have to hang on to the table because it is as if someone took a stick and hit you in the back of your knees. That is why they call it a psychic hit. At least that is how I experienced it."

"I have heard of intuitive hits, but not a physical psychic hit. An intuitive hit is like a confirmation."
"For me, it was physical and I had to hold on to something. Then, ethereal things began happening. I saw specters, figures, and shadows. I was dizzy. The weekend she died, I had at least two of these events where, after I was able to steady myself, I had to run to the couch and lay down. I immediately fell asleep. I had no idea it was connected to her. She was deciding whether to stay or to go. She went. In her passing, she gave the gift to me. Not that I didn't have something, I had something before this, but I had way more after she died."

"I have not heard this from anyone. You feel that someone was able to pass their gift to you?"
"She passed her gift to me."

"At the moment of death, she passed the gift to you."

Cards, Crystals and Candles

Cards, Crystals and Candles

Some psychics use Tarot cards, crystal balls, astrology charts, numerology, candles, crystals, muscle-testing, or other tools when they work with clients. Other readers don't use any tools and can just look at someone, hold hands or look at their palms, and read their energy. Readers who use tools say that the tools either help them access the client's energy and bring in fresh ideas and information, or that they don't really need the tools, but they like having them around. Crystals and candles enhance the setting. Tarot cards provide pretty pictures for everyone to examine. In addition, cards provide a bit of a barrier between the readers and the clients so that the readers can maintain their personal space. The cards also provide a nice distraction from the intensity of the reading.

Tools, such as Tarot cards, often help the client feel more comfortable. Some clients don't like to think that a psychic is reading their mind. When Tarot cards are used, it seems as if the information comes from the cards and is just being interpreted by the psychic; not like the psychic is directly accessing the client's energy or information.

One reader explained that he can do readings just using Tarot cards. Or, he can do readings just using psychic ability. However, when he uses both the cards and his abilities, the readings are better. His Guides are able to influence the cards so that they reinforce the messages he receives.

Here are a few thoughts from Intuitives who use tools, who were interviewed after I had written the book about psychics:

Cyndi Clarke does "table tipping." In her work, she uses the table as well as pendulums. They use the same type of energy. According to Cyndi, the psycho-kinetic energy which runs through the body is what gets the table moving. This energy runs through the crown chakra, out the feet, and out of the palm chakras. This energy moves the table back and forth. She can ask "yes" and "no" questions and the tipping table answers those questions.

Jesse Ann Nichols George explained that the tools she uses depend on how the person comes to her. If they call on the phone, it's different than doing energy work on them. In person, she can read their chakras and know how to guide them past blocks.

Sometimes, she uses tools such as crystals to bring clarity or focus to something she is picking up. She uses crystals, gemstones, and/or Tarot cards. She does scrying with stones or water. Sometimes she uses charms or pendulums, depending on what the person needs.

Maryushka is a Tarot card reader. She said, "When I read cards, there is a comfort level with the client. We both see the cards. It's a story in pictures. They have as much experience as I do in getting the feeling of what I say. They see what the cards say. It's the client, me, and the Universe; it's a triad. I like to be called a card reader because that is what I do."

She added that the information comes to her through the cards. She sees the pictures, they tell a story, and the words come out of her mouth. Information comes from the Universal Source.

Gary Wimmer uses stones to read for clients. This work is called Lithomancy. Gary said, "I drop the stones into a piece of leather about three feet long and tied in a circle. It's about 14 inches in diameter. I see it as a clock. I start from the center and read towards the top, then read around like a clock, for 12 weeks."

"When I drop them into the circle, I look at how they point and how they touch. They are nickel to quarter size and are all different colors. They have different edges and different characteristics. They are not high-quality gems; they are stones. A couple of agates, maybe a jasper. I know less about the mineralogy than most of the people at the psychic fairs; but, I know how to read the patterns."

"I look at it like a clock. First, I look at the stones in the center. I look two, three, or four inches from the center of the circle. For example, this morning I did a reading for a guy and there were no stones in the center of the circle. Mercury was the first stone I encountered. It was between the middle and the 12 on the clock. No stones in the center and Mercury at the top. The first thing I felt was that the guy was not sure what he was centered on. He was wondering what to do next. Mercury was telling me, by the way it was pointing, that he was trying to make decisions to move himself forward so he knew what his new center would be. That was the first thing I told him and he nearly fell out of his chair. It was simple to me and he thought it was exactly right. To him, it was astounding. To me, I was reading something I'm used to reading.

"I start in the center and I read toward the top. Sometimes I look at stones right before the top, like at 10 and 11. They could represent something from the past coming into the present. I look from 12 to 1, 1 to 2, etc., as weeks. There may be several stones in one week and no stones in another week. I interpolate. I look at how they point, how they touch, and how they affect the circle. Do they land on each other? Do they block each other? Do they point in the same direction in support, or is one stone trying to make its way through a bunch of other stones? I literally look at the geometry of it, the way they point and touch, and which week they are in. That gives a general reading.

After I give them a breakdown of what I see for the next 12 weeks, I let them ask questions."

I find it fascinating to get an insight into the world of psychic connection. I hope you do too.

Life Purpose

Life Purpose

In her book, The Lightworker's Way (Hay House, Carlsbad, CA, 1997, p. 72), Doreen Virtue, Ph.D., provided a lovely passage about contracts and life purpose which had come to her in a meditation. She wrote:

"Before your birth, you and a spiritual council of guides created a life plan tailored to meet your material, spiritual, and karmic needs. This Divine plan has three elements: a purpose, personal growth lessons, and relationships with other people to support the overall plan.

"Your purpose is a task you are to do through your career, volunteer work, or a special project that uses your natural talents and interests to benefit humanity. Your plan's second element entails well-timed life events that teach you about love and help you to shed self-defeating personality traits. The third element involves pre-birth arrangements you made with certain people who will serve as catalysts for your purpose and personal growth. These people may function as your family members, co-workers, friends, or acquaintances. Your interactions with these people simultaneously help them to fulfill their own plan.

"You predestined your plan as a rough outline of what your life would look like, including your purpose, significant life lessons, and relationships with particular people. Because the plan is only a rough outline, you must choose the finer details of your plan as you go through life. You are free to ignore the plan completely, but the emotional and societal consequences of this choice can be devastating."

She continued:

"In our previous incarnations, many of us didn't fulfill our purposes. During our post-death life reviews, we felt ashamed that fears and material desires thwarted our plan. This lifetime, we swear to ourselves before birth, we won't forget our purpose. The trouble is, we design the Divine plan in a ‘true self' state of peaceful mindfulness. When we experience ego-based fear during our human lifetime, we can't remember why we came here. If we do remember, fears keep us from ever starting our plan."

According to Dr. Virtue, people who procrastinate or forget their plans, feel a deep, low-level anxiety. They unconsciously know that another painful life review awaits them if they let themselves down again. They feel depressed, as if they're forgetting to do something important. They are forgetting to fulfill their contract.

So, how is your life purpose coming along? Do you know what it is? I think that my purpose is to discover all of this information and share it in a way which benefits all of us.

All Equal

All Equal

When I interviewed Susy Plummer, the Visionary Artist, she remarked:

"I think that everything is equal. People are equal; angels and Guides are equal. We are in this big circle of equality." She clarified, "I think all entities are equal and that we all have different jobs to do. We are all in different positions in the whole thing. We are all equal in worthiness."

At the time, that idea struck me. Are people really as important as angels and Spirit Guides?

When I was younger, I accepted that people were spirits in physical bodies. Sometimes we made our own decisions and sometimes we relied on our unseen spiritual selves to make inspired decisions. I looked to my Spirit Guides for good ideas. I knew they existed, but I had trouble making contact with them so I talked to psychics to pick up guidance. I thought that Spirit Guides knew more than we did; they were wiser and more important than we were. People were kind of like sentient puppets, looking outside of ourselves for guidance.

Then, I came to realize how important we are in our individual bodies. While we are maneuvering through our soul's evolution, we are the ones who physically create on Earth. It doesn't do our Spirit Guides any good to have a great idea if they can't implement it in physical reality. They need us as much as we need them. We co-create. Ideas may come from our own minds, or from Spirit Guides and our Higher Selves, but we have the hands and tools which create in a physical universe.

In addition, I heard that we switch places. This lifetime, a Guide may be working with us, but next time, we may be guiding them through a physical lifetime.

As I was doing the interviews, many Intuitives told me that they saw, and worked with, angels. Angels. I hadn't ever thought about angels. I had no experience with them. I had heard that angels were messengers from G-d. They whispered in our ears. They only came into physical bodies when we were in mortal danger and needed saving. I couldn't hear them. I couldn't see them. Were they real? Many people told me that they easily communicated with angels and archangels.

Meanwhile, a psychic told me that a whole non-physical community supported my journey. Sometimes when I enjoyed an accomplishment, I thought I heard them cheering.

From the other side, our deceased relatives may provide support and guidance, but they are on their own journey of growth. Just because they have passed, doesn't make them any smarter than we are. They may have an expanded perspective and we can look to them for input, but they still have their personalities and may not be looking out for our best interests. They are no more important than we are.

What about other people? Everyone has a role. Some people create art, but they need people who buy art. Some people are philanthropists, but they need people who rely on their charitable donations. Two sides to every activity. All the situations and players are necessary to make this universe a place of learning.

If we rely only on our physical senses, our soul still makes progress. If we are introspective, we better understand our lives. If we learn from the experiences of other people (like psychics), we can see a broader perspective.

I think that Susy is right. Every entity has a role to play and all entities are of equal value. We don't create without inspired influences, yet the Guides and angels need us to physically build things on Earth. Angels are no more important than we are. We are no more important than angels. Spirit Guides can help us, and we can help them. With other people, we both learn and teach.

All equal.

What do you think?


P.S. I apologize for missing last Sunday's Psychic Fair. I have a family issue demanding much of my time and attention.

 Quote from a Psychic - Karma

"With Karma, people may get pissed off if they think someone is doing something to hurt them, but that second person may be balancing out what the first person did to them which the first person is not willing to acknowledge, or which occurred in a previous lifetime. Judgement is up to G-d. People need to get out of the habit of judging others. Or it could be that one person hurt a second person who hurt a third person and the third person is now hurting the first person. It all balances out, but it is not necessarily a one-to-one correlation. Spirit uses whatever it needs to balance Karma."

Can Psychics See the Future?

The next Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair is this Sunday, October 4, 2015, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, AZ. In honor of the Fair, I'm posting the answer to one of the most-often asked questions:

Can psychics see the future?

Psychics often see the direction a client's energy is flowing. They see if the energy will take the client where they want to go. They also see bits and pieces of the client's future. Because information comes in paragraphs, phrases, images and symbols, these pieces have to be assembled correctly to produce a clear view of the future. The pieces are part of an assemblage, a collage, a mosaic, a painting. Psychics are artists. The pieces are real, but because they require assembly, it can be difficult to see the future precisely. In addition, pieces and impressions are just part of the story. What people actually do matters.

As I understand things, each person agrees to an outline for his or her life before being born. Once a person is here, the person doesn't remember what was agreed upon or which lessons he or she is here to learn. However, the blueprint still exists and psychics can often access the blueprint and help clients see the overview of their life. This blueprint helps the psychic understand the person's future. For example, they can see if a person is destined for marriage, children or travel.

While the outline provides the broad brush strokes for lives, people use free will to fill in the details. Most things are not predestined. People have choices. So the psychics can see the most-probable future, unless the person uses free will to change this future. This ability to change course is one of the positive things which can come from a psychic reading. If a psychic sees someone's future, and the person doesn't want that future, they can use free will to make the changes which bring a different future. For example, if a psychic sees illness on the horizon, the person can choose a healthier lifestyle to ward off disease. This change works unless the upcoming illness is part of the larger blueprint; part of the required life lesson.

In her book Gifts of the Soul (Llewellyn Worldwide, Woodbury, MN, 2008, p. 35), Constance Rodriguez, Ph.D., provided a metaphor for seeing a client's past, present and future. She explained that doing a reading can be like traveling by airplane, looking down, and seeing a vehicle on a one-lane road. She can see where the driver has been and where he is going. She can see bends in the road which represent difficulties in life and she can see upcoming intersections where he must choose which road to take. It is as if she can see the person's past, present and potential future at the same time. She can see the road with the most energy with respect to the person's future.

When it comes to world issues, psychics' most-complete predictions come in prophetic dreams and visions, or as clear communications from non-physical entities. These experiences have a unique energy which indicates that they are prophetic. However, time frames may not be clear. The psychics have to wait and see if the events come to pass. And again, if the psychics see a world future which they don't like, they can enlist people to try to change that future.

In addition to glimpses of the future, psychics also see other kinds of information. They see the emotions surrounding issues, the decisions with which people struggle, health issues, strengths, weaknesses, personality traits, life challenges, and relationships with parents and children. They might also see relatives who have crossed or provide inspirational messages about how wise and wonderful people are and how people can gracefully overcome challenges. Potential futures are just one aspect of psychic readings.
