Since you are here at my website, I can see we have something in
healthy curiosity about the spiritual world we live in. I, like many of us, have
been interested in all matters relating
to spirituality since
childhood. Like many psychics, I received messages and
visions in my early childhood but after sharing them, I found out other people
did not see or hear these things (at least they didn’t admit it!). After this
realization, I kept the visions and messages to myself and was annoyed
that I was receiving them—after all, I didn’t want to be different from
everyone else! In my early teens, my best friend and I made the mistake of
experimenting with the Ouija board. After a couple of very
frightening incidents, we got rid of the board!
Unfortunately, we didn't realize how to psychically defend ourselves
to make safe contact with the spiritual
realms and just left ourselves open to any entity to come through. And
low-level entities they were!
Later, when I was just
out of high school, nearly 30 years ago, I bought my first deck of Tarot cards and interpretation
book and was thrilled to notice the cards "spoke"
to me. In the beginning,
by the book and only read for close friends and family. The questioner
or a third person would write down the pertinent facts of the reading. The
purpose of this was to be able to gauge the accuracy of the reading
later. It was all fun and games at first—the
readings were light, accurate and easygoing—until I read my friend Maureen*. She and
another mutual friend, Meg, had just moved into an apartment together. That
night the cards told a tale of relocating far away, love, marriage, pregnancy,
miscarriage, separation along with profound loss and sorrow, We laughed it
off—Maureen wasn’t planning to move far away—and she certainly wasn’t
planning a family at age 19! Yet the cards predicted otherwise. Within weeks,
Maureen announced she had met someone from Texas. The next thing we knew, Meg was looking for a new roommate, and
Maureen followed her heart to the Lone Star
State. I congratulated Maureen and her new husband when she became pregnant, and
I cried with her after the baby miscarried and her subsequent divorce.
This experience taught
me to respect the cards and I insisted that the people I read show respect also.
As my abilities grew and I no longer needed the book to confirm
messages I was receiving, I began to read for people other than family and friends.
I learned to differentiate between the negative and positive energies
emanating from different questioners. Some people made me extremely
uncomfortable when reading them, and I learned to avoid these types of toxic
entities, so to speak. My peace of mind demanded it during the early
years, I drifted and denied my psychic abilities as I found it
difficult to pass on messages people may not want to hear. I buried myself in the dense
energy of the corporate world. I busied myself creating computer applications,
working in human resources, producing publications and generally ignoring my
visions and natural intuition. Even though I got married and became a mother of
two sons, I felt unfulfilled and my marriage ended after only a few years.
1995 I had a sudden health emergency. While
it was terrifying for my loved ones, who thought they were losing me, I had a
near death experience that turned everything around for me. I saw and
felt the angels and the beings of light overwhelming me with comforting healing
and love. I honestly did not care to come back! But I was told that I still had
a lot of work on Earth yet to do, one of my tasks being to motivate and
encourage people to
figure out what's holding them back and
pursue their dreams and
purpose. I again began giving
readings regularly. One day while meditating, I asked God for a sign that I was
on the true and correct path to my life’s calling. I felt His presence so
strongly, and the bright loving light so enfolded me, that I was filled with the
knowingness that I was indeed on
the correct path. The decision to follow my dream while helping others do the
same was made.
For a while I found I had no one close to me to talk
with while going through this phase. I had a hard time telling friends and family
what I was receiving and
I did try to talk to them they seemed uncomfortable. It wasn't that they didn't
want to understand, they just couldn't. I felt very isolated. I did
write to one psychic on the internet who coached people on their psychic paths, but as a single parent there was no way I
could afford the $90 an hour she required as a psychic professional. It was a very difficult time for me.
Finding my own path was difficult as I live in an area of the country that does
not have many metaphysical or healing centers. I now have wonderful friends on
the same path and that has really made a huge difference.
I began reading everything I could find about
metaphysics, angels, fairies,
near death experiences, past life regression and lightwork. Because I found
books and tapes especially inspiring, I enrolled in the Angel Therapy Practioner®
where Dr. Virtue gives intensive training on working with the angels.
Angel Therapy® is connecting with others' angels
and guides. ATPs perform healings to remove
negativity and blocks
I highly recommend all of
Doreen Virtue's books and products (her oracle cards are amazing!).
At her course I learned
that my primary way of receiving divine information is claircognizance, which means "direct knowing." The
information comes to mind directly and seems to be without
any origin. Like an unfolding thought, visions, feelings and
words will usually follow. I suddenly know
things--information suddenly will “pop” into my
Most of what I learned prior was taught to me by my angels and spirit guides (including
the Archangels and Masters such as Mother Mary and Jesus).
In addition to being an
ordained spiritual minister and
Practitioner®, I am a certified hypnotherapist.
welcome the chance to be a spiritual helper as you seek your own path in life.
