What happens in a session?
When we meet for a session, I am able to quickly assess what is up for you, what’s challenging you the most, what’s holding you back, and what’s next. It’s generally best to come to a session with a focus, intention, or with questions in mind, regarding what you’d like to get out of it.
Whatever the reason clients seek me out, it generally has to do with them being ready for something more, getting clarity on next steps, curiosity about spirituality or their purpose, or are feeling stuck with something (money, work, relationships, health).
The way I access information is by reading the energy around you. It may sound strange and fantastical, but think of it this way - you know you have thoughts and feelings, right? Can you see them? Nope, but they are definitely there! Same with energy.
Energy, for me, is as clear as anything physical. The answers you seek are “hidden” in the space around you. Hidden to you, obvious to me.
As a way to translate what I see, I draw pictures for you. This is also a way to illustrate, literally and metaphorically, the underlying dynamic of whatever has been holding you back. It tends to be the favorite part of the session where clients exclaim “Oooooohhhh, that makes so much sense.”
Since I am also a coach, I don’t spend the whole time “reading” you. I make sure to take that information and translate it into strategy. These are practical next steps that are specific to you, where we focus on three things:
Transforming an underlying dynamic or pattern that keeps you feeling stuck
Showing you how to let go of limiting beliefs while building new habits
Creating a bridge between where you are and want to be
How did you know you were psychic?
In 1996, I went to a psychic fair out of curiosity and skepticism. There were booths set up with mini readings available. I went to four of them all spread out far from each other. Each psychic told me pretty much the same information, including that I was psychic and I’d feel better if I used my gift. Though the proof was in my face - because how could they have said the same thing?! - I went on to ignore any gift they claimed I had. Two years later, I met my first psychic mentor, a professor at the university I attended. From that point, I opened up to the idea and began seeing clients.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve had 4 psychic mentors that I’ve learned a great deal from, including:
How to read people
The language, mechanics and psychology of energy
How to have boundaries so I’m not drained from this work or life in general
…and all sorts of other interesting subjects.
The big turning points and confidence building factors for me were in the work itself. I could read clients who were complete strangers to me. I knew nothing about them yet was able to read and understand on a deep level what was going on with them. I’d watch how they’d go from stuck to relieved and crying to confident and clear.
How does being psychic work for you?
I see images or videos of information about my clients related to my area of specialty - where they are stuck and how to turn it around, what their purpose is and how to embody it, what their potential is and how to get there. I call them pictures because that’s how it shows up to me. I translate these pictures for them, giving them language and an understanding for the unconscious ways in which they hold themselves back. I am also able to hear (clairaudient) and feel (clairsentient) information in a session.
Are you always reading people? Can you read my mind?
Probably to some degree I am always reading people. But I’m not going up to random strangers or the next door neighbor to tell them information about themselves. I’ve learned how to turn down the volume so I don’t get hit with sensory overload. But I’ve also set my gauge to turn on should I need to be aware of something when out and about in the world.
I wouldn’t consider myself a mind reader. If the idea of that concerns you, perhaps managing your mind might be a fruitful course of action! 😀
Your thoughts do not solely consist in your head, nor your feelings in your heart. We project that information into our energy field. Think of it like little signposts in the space around you, advertising what’s going on inside of you.
I can read this. So can everyone else, though most people do it unconsciously.
Instead when you are drawn to someone only to discover you share certain commonalities, you say, “Woah, that’s so funny that you and I have this in common.” But really, you were drawn based on the energy match that’s advertised in the space around them. It’s called matching pictures. We are all walking Pictionary and Memory games!
Can you see bad stuff?
How do you deal with telling people what they might not want to hear?
I have fine tuned my radar to not tune into “bad stuff” or energy that is draining or highly dysfunctional. That’s not who I work with. The clients that are drawn to me are ones that desire an unnameable “more” in life, like a deeper, spiritual more they are trying to articulate. They have a sense of this burgeoning light within them and they need support in locating it and letting it out. That doesn’t mean they don’t experience challenges. That’s part of life. But straight up bad, dark, super heavy, negative, closed, limited aren’t the kind of people that seek me out.
As far as dealing with telling people what they might not want to hear, well, that’s part of the job description for me. I have come to accept that sometimes there will be resistance. I now trust that if it’s coming up, I’m meant to share it. I deal with it by being empathetic, empowering, and encouraging around whatever information is there, giving them the tools to best work with it. Because, really, don’t you want to know how to better work with the hard stuff? 😉
