1. Do any of your relatives have intuitive or mediumistic gifts?

Our youngest son sometimes has precognitive dreams. He also is very good at reading for people! Our oldest son sees people sometimes when he closes his eyes. I believe it's only a matter of time before he awakens his psychic awareness. My mother and aunt have sensed spirits, but have never wanted to expand it into anything more.

2.What was the first thing to happen to make you aware of your abilities? How old were you?

I was 18 years old. I was driving, and sort of day dreaming. I kept hearing a voice telling me I was going to be in an accident. Over and over it kept repeating this. It happened two minutes later! In another instance, when my son was three years old and was sick with a cold, I had given him some medicine and set him down to play. As I was about to take a shower my intuitive voice kept telling me to put the medicine away, but I ignored it. I thought he was so small he wouldn't be able to reach the bottle on the kitchen counter. When I came out of the shower he had consumed the whole bottle of pills. We had to take him to the hospital and have his stomach pumped. I felt horrible for not listening! It seems that my intuitive voice was always there, giving me warning messages or something as simple as letting me know who was calling. Or, like many people, I experience synchronicities such as thinking of someone and they would call.

3. How have your abilities helped you personally and professionally?

My gift has made me more alive spiritually. I try very hard not to judge people and to appreciate what others are going through. Often times I've had dreams that have provided me with insights to better understand my own crises. Today I am more in tune with my feelings, so I'm able to be more empathetic with my husband and children and sense what they are going through.Professionally: I love my job! As a psychic medium, I work from my home office. The ability to touch people in a profound way is very rewarding for my client and myself. I am able to feel their grief, but at the same time feel their relief in knowing their passed loved ones are not "dead". The feeling of love I experience from spirit and the people I am reading is incredible. What greater reward could anyone have in their profession?

4. If you were looking for a psychic for a reading, what would you look for?

I would like to know other people's experiences by way of recommendations. Checking out references is an excellent way to make sure they are legitimate and are accurate. I would look for someone who presents themselves in a professional manner but is also warm and friendly

5. What do you do with the information the psychic presents to you?

I accept what a psychic tells me during the reading and let the reading unfold. If something doesn't resonate with me, I simply discard it. No psychic is 100% accurate. With a mediumship reading, I talk to the medium like I normally would and validate whatever they are communicating to me. The information I get from a medium reading I hold closest to my heart because it feels so fantastic to hear from the people I miss the most.

6. Do you do anything to enhance your psychic abilities?

I love to read spiritual and metaphysical books. I find meditation is most important to expand anyone's intuitive and spiritual awareness. Also, I practice, practice, practice! I feel we are always learning!
(back to top)

7. Do you get overloaded with information if you are in large groups of people?

No, I naturally "close down" when I'm not getting ready to do a reading or when I'm around a group of people so I feel just like a normal person! I don't get information at the spur of the moment for people when I am in crowded places, although I can feel so much energy in a group. Sometimes it feels as if my body is vibrating inside.

8. Do you feel everyone is psychic?

Yes, I believe we all are, it's just a matter of "re-membering" and developing it. I believe we come into this world with the ability, but are taught to forget. We are taught as very young children that our "imaginary" friends are make believe. I feel a lot of times our "imaginary" friend may be a spirit guide or a spirit friend. Most of us are taught that psychic abilities are not possible, so our conscious mind reminds us of this when we have a forewarning or "know" things which makes us not trust our intuition.

9. What is the difference between a psychic and a medium like John Edward?

A psychic is someone who is clairvoyant, clairaudient or clairsentient, with one of these abilities or all. A psychic can read a person's past, present and future. Mediums communicate with spirits. All mediums are psychic (even though medium George Anderson claims not to be) but all psychics are not mediums. A medium proves to the sitter that there is an afterlife by giving evidence from spirit. They may describe how the person in spirit looked while here, tell how they passed and show their character and life's memories and give special messages to their loved one.

10. How is it possible to communicate with people who have crossed over?

Well, because deceased people are not really dead. We are all made up of energy and energy never dies. Our body is very dense, but once we rid ourselves of our body, our spirit's energy is very high. Very similar to electricity! It is necessary for the medium to raise her energy and the spirit to lower theirs to communicate clearly. When we are in spirit we communicate telepathically, so it is just a matter of "re-membering" and quieting our mind enough to hear the spirit's thoughts that are passed along to us.

11. Where do we go when we depart this life?

To the spirit world, or what is considered Heaven. They are one in the same. It's just another dimension, not thousands of miles away like you might think. Spirit can be around us as much as they choose, as they are only "a thought away".
(back to top)

12. How do you communicate potentially tragic or dreadful information to a client?

Very carefully! I have asked my guides not to give me tragic information to pass along. I ask only for information that can help my client, not scare them. If I can warn someone of something that can be changed, then I will do that, but if it is "written", then I don't want to know. I feel if I am given some sort of negative information, I give it. I believe if the person is not meant to know, then I wouldn't be given the information. It can sometimes just be a warning to be careful driving, be careful of a particular person, etc. As far as predicting death goes, I always tell people that we all have free will. Everyone can change their mind about passing if they choose to. It is between that person and God as to when, where and how they pass away. Sometimes though, if someone's grandmother is not doing well and is up in age and I feel she may pass soon, I will mention it gently just so the person has a chance to visit with grandma and say or do whatever they need to do.

13. How do you feel about the use of Tarot cards, crystal balls and runes for psychic readings?

I don't believe these things are necessarily needed. These are tools, and help, but I feel probably the best way when a person is developing their abilities is to trust what they see, hear and feel first.
(back to top)

14. What do your clients expect from a reading?

Most people have hopes of communicating with their passed loved ones. I believe they expect to leave the reading knowing their passed loved ones are still around them. I feel my client also would like a loving message from their loved ones to cherish. Most of my readings include "psychic" messages also about their future.
(back to top)

15. Have you ever received lottery numbers for yourself or a client?

I asked for lottery numbers from my guides once and each number they gave me was one number off from the winning numbers! Obviously they have a sense of humor. If it is our time to win the lottery we will win it!

16. Do you ever feel differently physically when you are doing a session?

When I first started doing psychic readings I would physically become very, very hot. It was a strange feeling, but when I was a beginner I liked it because I knew that spirit was with me, so I trusted myself. Now I sometimes get warm, and also sometimes get goose bumps, even when I am outside in hot weather!
(back to top)

17. What do you do when someone becomes dependent on your services?

I try to let them know that when they get psychic or psychic medium readings too often, that at times the information can become watered down, and they end up getting a lot of the same information they did in the previous reading. I let them know that I want to give them a wonderful reading, not just take their money and give them the same information over and over again.

18. Why don't most of us remember our past lives? Are past lives something we should know about?

I believe if we remembered all of our past lives we would become confused as to what we are supposed to be learning in this life. If we remembered the people who wronged us from a past life, we would carry over that anger and hurt into this life. The same goes for remembering someone who was very, very kind. If we remembered this we might feel like we owe them all through this life, when really we should move on.Sometimes it is important to know something from a past life though. I was going through a "grieving" period for a very dear member of my family who didn't pass away, but only moved away. I just couldn't understand it! I had a dream of a past life that I had lost this person in a past life, and was just remembering that pain again when he moved away. So I feel that once in a while our guides show us what we need to know to help us understand certain things in this life

19. What is your view on reincarnation?

I think reincarnation is necessary for us to learn lessons. We don't learn everything we need to know in just one life, so we choose to come back again to learn more. I believe we keep coming back until we have evolved into people who love and care and know we are one with God and each other.

20. Have you ever done healing? What happened?

One healing session in particular, the woman had a tumor on her ovary. She lives in Switzerland and I was in Florida, so it was "distance healing". She had been to the doctor, so she knew it was there. I asked her permission to send her healing. She said "yes, please." So I focused on the tumor and I was able to see what side it was on, asked spirit to send healing. At that point I could see whirling energy spinning around it, and also saw the tumor being broken up. I''m not sure how else to explain it. They (the Spirit) were shooting something at it to make it disintegrate into small fragments and make it disappear. My client said she could feel warmth and tingles in the area I was sending healing. She later went to the doctor and found that the tumor had totally disappeared!

21. Do you ask clients to do anything special before a reading with you?

I ask my client to ask the spirits they want to communicate with to come through on the day of our reading. I also ask them to keep an open mind, especially if the spirit they want to hear from most doesn't come right away.
(back to top)

22. How do your abilities assist people?

I believe my gift helps people to know there is an afterlife. It helps the grieving process by knowing only the physical body has died, but the spirit/soul lives on. Maybe one day it will help people know the truth about where we all go.

23. What is dejavu? Why do we have it? How can we make use of it?

Dejavu can be one of two things. Usually it is a "vision" or feeling that we've been in the same place, same time, doing the same thing before. Before we come into our body we pick our life. We see different things that we will go through before we come here. This particular dejavu feeling is remembering what we've seen! It's funny, because there are different ways things can play out. We can follow a different path. Let me explain. I was someplace with a group of people one night. We were playing cards and I got the dejavu feeling/vision. It was exactly the same as what we were doing, except I was able to see the future by a few minutes. (I didn't know I was psychic then, I feel this truly was dejavu) The future part was that a couple of men got into an argument. Well, it sort of scared me because I hate confrontation and arguing, so I said a little prayer that it didn't happen. It didn't! No one got into a fight and everything was fine. So you see,the future is not written in stone. When we are choosing our life we are able to see different paths we may take and it is up to us to take whatever one we choose once we come into our bodies. We can also change paths once we are in our body if it is not to our liking. (I hope this is not too confusing) So, how can we make use of deja vu? Just like I did! If we don't like the feeling of the outcome, we can pray or try to change something in the true life "scene" to change the outcome. Simply, dejavu is a memory.The second thing dejavu can be is a memory of a past life. If we go to someplace we've never been before and feel we've been there before. Some people know their way around the whole place just from the memory of the past life. They may even meet people there who they knew from their past life. So again, dejavu, I feel, is a memory.

24. What is the difference between angels and spirit guides?

Spirit guides are just what the name implies. They are spirits to help guide us. They have been in bodies before and lived many lives. Our own spirit guides may be on our level or higher to help us progress/evolve. I don't believe we would have a spirit guide who is on a lower level than we are already on because what purpose would it serve? As we evolove we may get a different spirit guide to help us even further. We all have one particular "lifetime" spirit guide who is with us through our whole life though. They are usually very highly evolved and chose to be with us throughout this lifetime. It's usually someone we've known for a very, very long time. I remember when I met mine. It was so amazing! I was lying in bed listening to a guided meditation cd for the first time. The voice on the cd said to go to a garden and I would meet a special friend or guide there. I saw a man (in my mind) who is old, white hair and long beard, dressed in a white robe with a rope belt. When I saw him I started crying. I laid in bed and tears ran down my cheeks. It was like I had forgotten about him, and when I saw him I remembered how very much I loved him and missed him. I hugged him and felt sooooo much love from him. Sometimes our spirit guides will put a thought into our mind to get us to do something, or warn us not to do something. They can also give us a flat tire or stick us in a traffic jam to keep us from having an accident or keep us out of harms way. I got a flat tire one time driving to my mom's 5 hours away. I waited and waited at the mechanic's to check my tire and fix it. Guess what?There was not a single hole in my tire! Come to find out, there was a major car accident a couple hours ahead involving many cars. As frustrated as I was I was thankful someone was watching out for me.Angels have not been in bodies. They are here to help us in any way we ask. We all have angels around us. Sometimes they help us out of a very bad situation (like our guardian angels). We can also ask them tohelp us with things, even silly things! They are so amazing, it blows my mind! LOL You have to remember, when you ask/pray for anything from God, spirit guides, angels, whoever it is, be specific. And NEVER say "I want"! They give us exactly what we ask for, and guess what? If we say "I want" we will get just that. More wanting! Uggggggh! So, just say, "I expect", "I have" (as if you already have it), "My intention is to have". You get the picture.Angels give us signs that they are around us. What I notice a lot are numbers. I read a Doreen Virtue book called "Healing With The Angels" and in the book she gives sequences of numbers and the meaning of the message from the angels. You can ask the angels for anything. When I pull into a parking lot I ask them for a good parking spot. They always, always work! You can ask your angels to tell someone else's angels to tell them something. LOL I know it sounds ridiculous, but they are there for us. When we went to see our son at the airport (David, who was going to combat training before going to Afghanistan) I kept worrying about him and getting sad. Everywhere I looked I saw numbers in sequence, like, 333, 222, 444 etc. I justthanked the angels every time I saw them because they were letting me know they were protecting him. Just pay attention if you keep waking up and see the clock at the same time every night, or constantly seeing certain numbers on license plates, etc. Click Here to read the meanings by Doreen Virtue.

25. What is the difference between a spirit and a ghost?

I believe a spirit has passed on to the other side and a ghost is someone who feels they have unfinished business here or maybe they don't realize they have passed. Their guides are trying to get their attention, but if they still believe they are "physical" they might not realize they can hear spirits like most people here. I have never communicated with a "ghost", but I''m sure there might come a time.Is there anyone who you ever communicate with that doesn't seem happy or content?No, never. Sometimes with someone who commits suicide is a little upset/guilty feeling for what they have done. They are their own worst judge and when they leave the earth plane earlier than was planned they see how much harm they've done to their own evolvement, lessons, and plan for their lifetime here. Also they see how much they've hurt their loved ones. But eventually they feel better and they move on in the spirit world preparing for their next life. Remember if someone commits suicide they are really not in their right mind to begin with. No, they don't go to "hell". They get the help they need from spirit.

26. Why can you connect to our loved ones who have passed and we can't?

I've opened myself up to communicating with spirit. If you want to communicate with them you certainly can, it's all a matter of intent. Just know that you cannot be afraid or you will block it. You have to have faith, no doubting. Here is the first thing I was taught shortly after my brother died and I was desparate to see him. Before you go to bed at night ask the person you want to communicate with to come toyou in your dreams, then tell yourself you will remember your dreams. Do this every night and eventually it will happen. I did this and one night I was lying on my side (asleep) and I heard this whirling, buzzing sound that kept getting faster and faster and louder and louder, that it woke me up. I stayed where I was with my eyes closed because I knew it had to be Brian. I just knew. It literally hurt my ear! Realize that it was shortly after Brian passed, so he was a "newbie" at this. I then heard a male voice say, "Well, that didn't work." That was one of our guides trying to help Brian. My ear still hurt the next morning! The whirling, buzzing sound is because when we are in spirit we are pure energy - like electricity. Brian just had a hard time slowing it down. If you want to communicate with spirit, you really should learn to meditate. I used guided meditation cd's. They really helped teach me to stay focused. Meeting your spirit guide/guides is another thing I would suggest you try doing, because then you will trust what they bring through for you. It helps to talk to them. You can do this using meditation cd's also. Making lights flicker, go on and off, making the phone ring, making the tv volume go up and down, etc. is easiest for spirit because of their high vibrational level. Anyway, it's not a matter of me communicating with spirits and you can't, it's about wanting to, choosing to. A lot of mediums seem to have something devastating happen to them that opens them up to spirit communication. I think that is what happened to me, besides always having some psychic abilities that I just didn't know what to do with!

27. How do they describe to you where they are? Do they say its heaven?

There are all sorts of descriptions of where they are. Always, it is beautiful. Sometimes I will see a family group all together celebrating something for someone here on earth, such as a birthday. Yes, it is heaven.They call it whatever we know it to be. In England they call it the spirit world, so that is what they would call it if they were speaking to someone in England. It doesn't matter, just like what we call God doesn't matter.It's whatever you want or believe it to be. Heaven is whatever they want it to be like also. Sometimes I see beautiful green meadows with flowers, other times I see a beautiful garden with benches, big beautiful greek style buildings that look like they are made out of marble. They can create things just with a thought. If they don't like it, they "think" it away, and think something new! Sometimes when a spirit had a very sick, tired body, when they go to heaven there is a place they go where their spirit guides will "juice them up" with more energy. They might lay on a healing table and energy is sent to this tired spirit.
