Hello! I am excited and pleased to announce that I have been vetted, verified, approved and listed with Bob Olson's Best Psychic Directory. See my listing here:
Trusting my intuition is one of the things I have been working on for several years. How many times have you thought that you should do something and then went ahead and did something else that turned out to be the wrong thing? We have all done that many times. When I get those little nudges I try to notice them and follow them.
Recently I did a reading that I just have to share with you. It was one of those readings that really touches my heart. And it's also a lesson in trusting your intuition.
A lady called me for a reading. She needed it soon and I agreed to do it. My readings are almost all on the phone and she agreed to that. From the very start this reading seemed to violate many of the rules I have learned from other mediums and set for myself.
The lady who called was making the appointment for someone else. I don't usually like that. She was going to be present when the client was getting her reading. I don't usually like that either because it can bring in too many spirits and the one you want may have less of a chance to come through. But I liked her energy so I agreed to these things.
A short time before her appointment I started getting the urge to go to them and do the appointment in person. I had no idea what this was about but I was not planning on seeing people that day and had not dressed for it.
I texted the lady who had arranged the appointment and told her that I needed to come see them in person. They agreed.
When I arrived for the appointment there were four family members present. This is usually something I am not comfortable with because, again, it can bring in too many spirits. But my intuition told me it was OK and that they should stay.
I started the reading and immediately their beloved, son/brother came through. This was the person they all wanted and needed to hear from. This lovely young man who's life ended tragically short, brought through great evidence. Right away he wanted me to hug his mother.
The reading brought tears to everyone's eyes including me. I am so grateful that I trusted my intuition all along the way and did this reading the way the young man in spirit wanted me to. He was speaking to me through my intuition knowing I would trust it. He knew that doing the reading the way he suggested would be best for everyone involved.
It turned out to be the kind of reading that makes me so glad to be doing the work I am doing. I feel so privileged to be able to facilitate this kind of healing for people.

As a psychic medium I am in contact with many other mediums, energy healers, psychics and light workers. The argument of whether we should charge for our work repeatedly comes up. A common perception is that since our work is spiritual we should not charge fees. I argue that this is not a good reason as everything is spiritual. We are spiritual beings.
Whether we are focused on the spiritual aspect of our existence matters not. It is who we are. We each have a soul. Therefore every, accountant, lawyer, doctor, ice-cream scooper, artist, housekeeper, etc. is doing spiritual work for his or her own soul's growth. My work as a medium is no more spiritual than that of an accountant. We cannot be separate from the spiritual. We are the spiritual. I clearly come down on the side of" it's ok to charge for our work". Here's why.
In the United States where I live, anyone who wants is entitled to obtain the necessary skills and education for whatever (legal) job he or she desires and earn a living doing it. Anyone. It's one of the blessings of being an American. I am free to explore my interests, talents and abilities. Because my work is deemed "spiritual" does this mean that I do not deserve to earn a living? Priests are supported by the diocese they serve. Even the Dalai Lama is supported by his order.
If I were only giving my work for free, I would still have to support my family. So I would need to find another job to pay the bills. This job would likely not serve other people to the best of my ability the way being a medium does. It also most likely would not feed my soul the way being a psychic medium does. Additionally, If I were working at another job it would divert my energy and time away from working as a medium and helping people through my mediumship. I simply could not help as many people.
Just as other people attend schools and training so do light workers. Most of us are continually seeking to improve our skills and abilities. While we may start with a raw "gift", as do many people, we train to improve it. This training costs us money and time. We pay for the training ourselves and often spend many, many hours and thousands of dollars improving our natural talents. A concert pianist may have a wonderful natural, spiritual gift of playing the piano. She will also spend money and time developing her natural gift. Should that pianist not be compensated because her ability is "God-given" or "spiritual"?
All special abilities or "gifts" people have are spiritual in nature for us to use. The gift may be intelligence, athleticism, healing, sewing, baking cakes, throwing a baseball, painting, sculpting, counting money, etc. Many people work using their special gifts and skills. Should they not be compensated'? Should a doctor be required to live as a pauper simply because he's using his God-given gifts of healing and intelligence?
Ultimately, each medium, healer, psychic, reiki practitioner, etc needs to decide what works best for him or her. Most importantly, he or she should refrain from judging what other light workers choose. Some may have the luxury of working for free or on a donations basis only. Others need to earn an income. I can't say whether you should or should not charge for your work or how much you should charge. What you choose to do is up to you.
I have seen very many mediums disparaging other mediums for "charging too much". They feel that when a medium becomes famous they often start charging too much. It may seem like a lot of money to me but that isn't for me to judge. I don't have to pay for that medium's services if I don't want to. If people are willing to pay the high prices then that is what the service is worth. Like it or not in a free market society such as ours, a service (or anything) is worth what other people are wiling to pay for it - not more and not less.
Lastly, when we as light workers perform our work there is an energy exchange involved. Even if we are channeling our healing or messages from a higher power there is an energy exchange involved. We are giving of ourselves and our energy to other people. If we do not receive energy back we will find ourselves depleted. We will grow increasingly unhappy and and feel like we are giving all the time and being taken advantage of. Nobody wants to end up as a bitter light worker. Not charging may be fine for someone who does it as a hobby. That's his choice. It's not up to me to judge if someone charges or how much he charges.
People value what they pay for. When people put energy or money into something they value it. The perceived value of the item or service increases. Conversely, people often don't value what they are given for free. This is a well known marketing concept and is the reason designers are able to charge a premium for their items such as shoes and handbags. They are deemed luxury items. Is the item really worth more? The raw materials used the make the items are probably top quality but so are many non-designer items. When they put the designer label on it suddenly the perceived value goes up. That’s not to say I think light workers should charge designer prices, but then again who am I to judge what you do?
I hope I've clarified some of the reasons it's OK to charge for you work as a light worker. May you discover your value and most importantly value yourself.

My guides have been urging me to write about suicide. So, I started this post a week ago but put it aside. I felt like this topic is too heavy and I'm not qualified to write about it. When someone you love takes his or her own life it creates a special kind of hell for those left behind. While I can help people heal their grief through a connection with a loved one, suicide is particularly ugly.
Then my aunt's husband committed the ultimate act just yesterday taking his own life.
Oh my God a suicide in my extended family! It's not the first. I did not know him well, having met him only once. Yet I am acutely aware of the trauma he is putting my aunt and his other loved ones through. I'm also acutely aware that it did not solve his financial problems. Those were merely transferred to my aunt for her to deal with.
Additionally, it did not solve his emotional problems. I am aware that he feels he made a mistake. But it's too late. He can't reverse his actions. I'm aware that he wants to tell my aunt he's sorry. But she can't hear him through her grief and emotional trauma. Mostly I am aware of a life un-lived... of opportunities missed... and roads not taken.
However, I believe that every single one of us is doing the best we can at any given time. It's easy to look at this from the outside and make judgments about what I perceive he should have done. But my mind, my experiences and my perspective are not his. He was not able to climb up out of that hole of despair and saw no other way out. I should be sending him the highest level of compassion and love.
Many of us have lost a loved one to suicide. The impact it has on those left behind is deep and lasts forever. Even if we weren't particularly close to the person who took his life we still think about it years later. As a psychic medium, I've seen grief in many forms and suicide is extremely traumatizing for those left behind.
The loss from suicide is particularly stinging because it makes us look at ourselves and see where we think we've failed our loved ones. We wonder what we could have done differently to help our loved ones more. Many of us suffer a tremendous amount of guilt when someone we love takes his own life.
From a spiritual standpoint, suicide opens a lot of questions. We wonder if our loved one is safe on the other side. After all, many religions teach that suicide is wrong and that people who commit suicide suffer for it on the other side. That's a real fear for many of us left here. We hope and pray that our loved ones' souls aren't suffering eternal damnation.
Some religions teach that the souls of people who commit suicide are damned to wander the earth for eternity. Some teachings claim they must stay on earth for the remainder of the time they would have lived. I don't believe any of this is true.
I believe everyone is welcomed into the light when we cross over regardless of how we pass. Everyone. It does not matter if a person dies naturally of old age or takes his own life, he or she is welcomed into the light. Going into the light is like coming home for our souls. I don't believe any soul is ever made to walk the earth for any length of time. Although some choose to but that is for another blog post.
Once our souls are on the other side we have a sort of "life review". In this review we see the impact on others of our actions in life including the choice of suicide. The soul who committed suicide now experiences the pain his loved ones felt when he died. He sees the trauma he left behind. When we cross over we can feel how the choices we made hurt others. Alternatively, we can see how the kind things we did also made an impact on others. So, I believe we judge ourselves.
Because I am a psychic medium I have a very different view of life and death than I used to. I have the vantage point of KNOWING that our souls go on after our bodies die. This knowledge has brought me a tremendous amount of relief. I wish all of you could feel as certain as I do that there is more to this life than just merely this physical existence.
Please understand I am not making light of suicide or of death in general. Life is precious - not to be wasted.
I send all my love and blessings out to those of you who suffer because you've lost someone to suicide. May you find peace. I also send all my love and blessings out to those souls who have committed suicide. You did the best you could with what you have.

I love what I do. I really love it. When I talk with a spirit on the other side and they provide me with those little obscure details about their lives that give their loved ones here some peace of mind I'm so happy to have helped them. I'm elated. Facilitating these miracles makes my world go around. It makes all the doubt and ridicule worth it. I love connecting with spirits and feeling their emotions. I love feeling how much they love their families who are still here.
Our loved ones on the other side are exactly as funny, quirky, smart and loving as we remember them. When they come through and show me those little details that define their lives it's pure magic, a miracle. Facilitating those connections fuels me. They keep me going. I'm thrilled when I am able to serve spirit in this way. When I am able to give people who love each other another visit. I feel the spirit person's emotions and I know how much your loved ones care about you. I literally feel it and often it brings tears to my eyes.
It happened again today. A spirit provided me with that one little detail, that one word that meant so much to her family. This kind of thing changes people's lives. I'm so honored and blessed that spirit has chosen me to connect with them.
