Recording your Psychic Readings

Recording your Psychic Readings

When you sit down with a psychic, the psychic will have lots to say. Perhaps the two of you will discuss your love life, your work life, your relatives, or your upcoming events. In the moment, it's easy to hear every word but, afterwards, it may be difficult to remember exactly what a psychic has said. If you want to remember the details, it is important to record the reading.

Some people feel that their memory is pretty good and that they will remember the highlights of a reading. Other people think that they can write notes efficiently and that they will remember what was said. For me, I need to record the reading to capture the ideas. I used to carry a small tape recorder with me. Now I carry an even smaller digital voice recorder. I don't own a smartphone, but I've seen lots of folks at the psychic fair using smartphones to record readings.

I have a friend who had a reading with a psychic three years ago. A few months ago, I asked this friend what she had thought about the reading now that several years had passed? Had the information been useful? Had the predictions come true?

My friend told me that there had been much useful information in the reading; however, she had been put off by one thing the psychic had said about her future. While my friend was interested in a nursing career, the psychic had said that my friend wasn't a nurse so much as she saw her as a teacher. In the interim since the reading, my friend had gone to nursing school and (woo-hoo!) is now an RN with a great job. She had been slightly resentful of the psychic's view that she wouldn't become an RN and that, instead, she would become a teacher.

I asked my friend to go back and listen to the actual recording of the psychic reading and see if she accurately remembered what the psychic had said. Guess what? The overall impression of the psychic's reading had been remembered, but the psychic had not actually said that this woman should not become a nurse. My friend told me, "In my memory of the reading I wrote that she said ‘no, not a nurse.' But she didn't say that at all. She just thought that I wouldn't be a traditional nurse because she saw me more in a teaching and creative role."

I am certain that this woman will be a creative, educational, nurse.

The way we remember events, especially as time passes, morphs. We think we remember, but the details can be lost.

One of the fun things I've done since working on this Project is go back to the notes from my readings from 25 years ago. Apparently, the first psychic I spoke with was very accurate. She predicted that I would soon meet my husband and have two children. Over the years, I have been to many more psychics. Some have been accurate and some have not. Many of them have picked up where I was in the moment; the things with which I was struggling. They knew who I was and gave me extremely valuable information about myself and my close family. I love going back to the original notes, or recordings, to see how things turned out.

Back to the point of this blog post: If you talk with a psychic, record your readings. The recordings are the only way to ensure that, years later, you can recall exactly what a psychic said.

Channeled Message

Quote from a Channeler

I heard this channeled message in December and thought I would share it with you today:

"Experience the freedom, the freedom of doing and being whatever you want. Freedom. Freedom. Ignore that which is on the outer, and experience the freedom you have within. The freedom of choosing your own path. The freedom of not being tied down to anything. Doesn't that sound like fun? It is in your grasp. It is in your hand presently and it just takes a little tweaking of your thought process. The freedom to be anything and everything. The freedom to experience anything and everything. Your choice. Your choice. Think of it. Embrace it. Bring it into creation.

"Spread the word. The more who are aware, the greater that we see the change here; Heaven on earth. The more you visualize Heaven on earth, the quicker it will be manifested in your view. Seek it out and you shall find it. Visualize it, and it is there. How fun.

"Each person you meet is your brother or sister. Make that conscious awareness as you look into the eyes of another, that you are standing before your self. And those that aggravate you, look into your self to understand why. It has been said for a long, long time when you see something in another that you don't like, it is because that something is within you.

"Forgive. Don't need to forgive if there is nothing to forgive. Surround yourself with those who love you and who you love. Those that annoy you, wait till next life. Choose your life and make it joyous in everything you do, and with everyone you come in contact with. Don't feel obligated because of past history. Don't feel obligated because of relationships. On the other side of the veil, there is never anything to forgive. We all understand. When one crosses over . . . all Spirit understands that this is just a play, it is just a game. There are no hard feelings on the other side. Nothing to forgive. Let that settle on your hearts. Let that be a way of life, for it brings a lot of joy. There are no regrets."

Unbelievable (yet True) Angel Story

Unbelievable (yet True) Angel Story

Many people have told me that they see, and work with, angels. As I understand things, angels are messengers who whisper in our ears. They are beings which have never incarnated on Earth. In contrast, Spirit Guides have lived on earth, crossed to the other side and agreed to stay in the spiritual world for a while to guide those of us in physical bodies. So, imagine my surprise when I interviewed Jesse Ann Nichols George and she told me that, after a set of Near-Death Experiences, she had begun her angel training while still on earth. She is a real person who is becoming an angel. Rare? Impossible?

Here's Jesse's story. My questions are in Italics.

Jesse: I've always known that this is my last incarnation. I actually was meant to leave this incarnation sooner and I opted to start my angel work and the work which goes on beyond human incarnation while in this lifetime as a human. It was unheard of. Even in the spiritual community, people were surprised. No conscious, evolved soul does that. I had my gifts revoked. I had all spiritual assistance yanked from me during that period because they didn't agree with my decision.

I don't understand what you are saying. What happened?
Nearly 20 years ago, I was in a car accident and I left my body. I was supposed to die and begin my angel training, but I wanted to stay on Earth. There was a panel who said that this hadn't been done before and that if I went back into this body and started my angel lessons and angel work as a human incarnation, that they could not help me anymore. I would not have any help. I knew that a lot of people needed to be awakened and that they were not going to get it from an angel or a Spirit Guide. They had to hear it from another human being. It had to come from a human. I am volunteering to do that work.

After talking to the panel, I was shoved back into my body and I hit really hard times. I had no help. I had no spiritual presence around me. Everything in my life was falling apart, but I kept connecting with people who were at big crossroads in their lives and they kept turning their lives around. One person went from being strung out on drugs to being the totally-clean president of a radio station. He earned the custody of his kids back. He said that no one had ever believed in him. He asked, "Where did you come from? You're an angel." Each of these people kept telling me I was an angel and that their lives kept transforming. I thought it was bizarre. I knew I was an angel, but how strange was that? When I was selling gemstones and crystals in Arizona, I walked in a friend's door and she told me I was an angel. People kept calling me an angel. It was interesting.

Then, maybe seven or eight years ago, I was on the way to see a friend and I was driving down the street. I had a very weird sensation. I looked in my rear view mirror and a car was coming at me from behind. It wasn't slowing down or changing lanes. All of the sudden, I felt myself jump out of my body (I didn't want to feel this crash!). While out of my body, I was still physically driving my car and watching things. This car came up behind me and passed through my car; right through the driver's side. I was looking around trying to figure out what was happening. The other car materialized in front of my car. It was a real, physical, car. I didn't know what had happened.

All of the sudden, the panel who had been there when I had died, which had disagreed with my decision to go back into my body, told me that I had just passed my test. They were with me again. They apologized for having had to put me through the test period. They didn't believe that this could be done. They began giving me their assistance again. After that, things improved in my life. It was the most bizarre thing.

How is that possible? It was a real car?
It was a real car and it went through my car. The driver acted like I wasn't even in the lane. The period of time from when I had died in the first car accident, until I had survived the second car accident, had been a test.

So, there's an angel sitting across the table from me? I have to ask you more things . . . I just don't know what they are!
This is not a concept which people delve into. I have tried to research angels incarnated on Earth.

It doesn't happen because angels are not incarnated on Earth. As I understand things, Spirit Guides have lived on Earth, have crossed to the other side, and can help people. Angels aren't supposed to have lived in bodies. Angels are messengers.
There is no definition of it except that angels show up in our lives, sometimes through people, but they are not actually here working.

This is a foreign concept. I started my angel lessons here. That's when my work evolved from working with energy to becoming a more-transformational tool. It's really only been this year that I have said that I would truly embrace my messenger side. I would be an active catalyst. Instead of allowing people to come to me, I would be pro-active.

There is a related precedence for all of this in Eastern Traditions in the story of Tara the Universal Mother. I had embraced her energy during this time. She is known, like Kwan Yin, as the Mother Goddess of Compassion.

What else can I ask you as an angel?
I actually am a spirit, not just communicating with spirits. I find myself looking at things with a different perspective. As an angel, I'm much more focused on the big, universal picture. It's about helping people. We place judgments on things. Life is not about that. We need to act regardless of our judgments. I have to be very flexible, open, and willing to ride with things.

What do think of this angel story? Have you seen angels working in your life? Let me know what you think.

Quote from a Psychic - Jesse Ann Nichols George

Quote from a Psychic

Jesse Ann Nichols George explained all of her gifts to me when I interviewed her. Then I asked, "Are you also psychic?" Jesse replied:

Yes. I am a 13th generation psychic, intuitive, spiritual healer and advisor. When I traced it back, I found that many of my relatives worked through the churches. They would pray, or meditate, with the person with whom they were working.

You have 13 generations worth of information . . .
I'm holding a lot of power.

Many of my relatives worked through church systems to do spiritual healing and advising. I found relatives who sat on juries at the Salem witch trials. In my family, we have Wiccans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Catholics, Christians, Mormons and more. It's a big mix of religions. The people who sat on the Salem juries were creating an opening for churches and belief systems to unify in the New England colony. Even though they were sitting on the juries, they were helping innocent people to escape persecution. They were freeing them and sending them to other developments.

I can trace my relatives back to England and to northern Europe. I have a relative who was brought in by the team of 12 scholars who translated the Bible. He was the 13th person and has been recognized in one or two places. He was brought in to clarify and finish the translation.

It is interesting to be the 13th generation. My birthday is November 13 and I was born on Friday, the 13th. "Thirteen" has always resonated with me.

Later in the interview she added:

When it's passed down through generations, the more that it is actively worked with, the more it is strengthened. If you hit a link in the family where it is ignored, it can settle down. On the other hand, that settling down can also be power building because the energy has no outlet. It's like boiling water in a pot with a tight lid; it creates pressure. Someone has to release the pressure.

Psychic Superpowers

Psychic Superpowers

If you could have one psychic ability, what would it be? This is like picking a personal superpower.

Would you like to see ghosts or talk to deceased relatives?

Let your imagination wander for a moment. Take a breath. Relax.

Would you like to hear messages? Who would the messages come from? Psychics communicate with Spirit Guides, angels, Ascended Masters, their Higher Self, and God.

Would you like to know things? Just have them pop into your head?

Would you like to know about the folks you meet? Are they good guys or bad? Do they drink too much? Can they heal others?

What about feelings? Would you like to feel what other people feel? Would you prefer to experience physical or emotional empathy?

Would you choose to be an instrument of healing? Would you enjoy having medical intuition or being able to bring healing energy into a person's body?

Would you like to see, hear, or know about future events?

There are many psychic abilities. Some of the most common are seeing (either in the mind or in the physical world), hearing, knowing, and feeling.

Other psychic abilities include: smelling aromas and tasting items which aren't physically present (but provide a clue as to what is going on), seeing and feeling auras, knowing about a person by holding one of their belongings (like a wallet), having prophetic dreams, receiving information about past lives, communicating with nature spirits, performing automatic writing, channeling information, and communicating with animals.

In addition, psychics can learn skills like Reiki (a way to channel energy) and chakra balancing, and can also learn to use tools, such as Tarot cards and crystal balls.

From the wide array of psychic skills, the one I would select is "hearing from my Spirit Guides." I would love to get good information about the priorities in my life. I would like some direction which I felt came from an entity who had my best interest at heart. I would like clear communication so that I could know that I am on the right track. I want reliable life guidance.

In the physical world, many people have trouble hearing. They use hearing aids. Someone needs to invent high-frequency hearing aids so we can all hear from Spirit Guides.

How about you? Seeing? Hearing? Knowing? What's your wish? Send your thoughts to me at Or, post them on My Psychic Search Facebook Page.


P.S. The Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be held this Sunday, April 6, at the Windmill Inn in Tucson, Arizona. I'll be there with my book and my chakra-balancing pendants. Smile

Quote from a Psychic - Healing Work

Quote from a Psychic - Healing Work

Last summer, I interviewed a Tarot card reader named Maryushka. In addition to reading cards, she also performs healing work, and I asked her about this work. She replied:

"I can do cleansings. I can feel where people hurt. I work in their aura. I feel issues in their aura.

"I had a healing group in my home for about 15 years. We met every week. We would sit in a circle and do a meditation prayer. Each person brought the names of people who needed healing. Once in a while, a person would come who wanted us to work on them in person.

"When I am working in a circle and we concentrate on one name, I can find the person. We are in lines. We are in energy bands and I can actually find them. Here now [circling a hand in the air], I feel it's all the same energy in this space, but if we name someone who is hurting, I can literally find them. I can find their band of energy and hold them in my hand. Not as a person, as an energy. I am able to direct energy to them. I am a conduit. It's not that I'm doing the healing. It's never me. I am bringing the energy in and it is going through me and out to them. By being able to find them, it's very powerful. I know when I'm "on" because I can find them.

"One of the most interesting things happened when I was working on my grandfather-in-law who was very ill. One day, I sat down and I couldn't find him. You know why I couldn't find him? He had died an hour earlier. His energy was gone from this plane, the plane from which I could reach him."

Motivations, Choices, and Experiences

Motivations, Choices, and Experiences

I am a detailed dreamer. As I sleep, my elaborate dreams are full of people and places. I often remember my dreams and write them down when I wake up. Today, I am going to share a series of dreams which I had a couple of weeks ago. Three nights in a row, these experiences built upon each other. Here goes.

Morning 1, I woke up having had a dream about motivation. We need to figure out what motivates us. Are we working for money? For fame? To bring joy to others? How about personal/soul growth? What is the motivation for what we are trying to accomplish in life? We choose our motivations and they determine the rest of our life.

Morning 2, I woke up having had a dream about choices. I had written a book about life choices. Once we understand our motivations, we make appropriate choices. If we are trying to make money, we make one set of choices. If we are striving for soul growth, we make a different set of choices. We determine what we want in our lives. In this dream, I was in an auditorium teaching a class about Life Choices, just winging it, and it was going well.

Morning 3, I woke up hearing, "Life is not a morality play. It is an adventure." Wow. That blew me away. Life is not a morality play? What does that mean? I think it goes back to March 13's discussion of whether we are here to learn lessons, or just to have experiences. If life is not a morality play, it means that all of our choices don't have to be the moral ones. Some people can make "immoral" choices so that they can have a lifetime of experiences which suit their needs. To me, this is an upside down way of looking at things.

Personally, I am not a risk taker. I prefer the "high road" of moral choices so that I can look in the mirror and feel good about myself. Is that ego talking? Is my life missing the thrill of adventure? Of stepping out of my self-imposed box?

Lessons vs. experiences? Perhaps we are here to experience things but, in the experience, we learn who we are. We don't need to think of this as making an effort to learn lessons. Instead, the lessons appear after the fact. Yes, we tried a new experience just for the fun of it and look what happened - we learned something about ourselves.

Comments? Questions? Feel free to contact me at

Now, for the "business" part of this post:

This weekend, March 28 - 30, I will be set up at the Tucson Museum of Art Spring Artisans Market. If you are in Tucson, please stop by and say "Hello."

New news: I have loaded another e-book onto Trish Silay's story is now available as a "Psychics Speak" e-book. Trish is one of those people who thought she was crazy until she discovered that she was psychic. She works with the "One Brain" system to help people integrate both sides of their brain and access their higher consciousness. You can read more about Trish on the Psychics Speak page of this website.

Have a great week!

Quote from a Visionary Artist - Melody Krafft

 Quote from a Visionary Artist

"The material world which we live in has been created out of our thoughts. If we create something which is not out of love, it is illusionary. Fear is illusionary. If we are in the space of love, and recognize that the essence of who we are is love, then we are aligned with the Source of everything. Some people call it G-d, some people call it the Great Spirit. We are all from that consciousness which created everything. We have infinite potential within us. Most people just don't realize that because they are in the space of fear and scarcity. When you start learning that you really are love, you have access to wonderful things."

Melody Krafft

I shared today's quote with you because I have heard the same message from many psychics and Intuitives. This has become a theme: We are the co-creators of our lives, and we have infinite potential.


Here are a two more things you might find interesting:

Over the weekend, I was interviewed on a TV show called, "Kermie and the Angels." The title may sound a little odd, but Kermie is a woman who has spoken to angels for many years. I'll let you know when there is a link to the show. I really appreciated the opportunity to be on TV. It was my first on-camera interview about this work.

This coming weekend, I'll be set up at the Tucson Museum of Art Spring Artisans Market. If you feel like chatting with me, please stop by. The show will run from Friday through Sunday and the Museum is in downtown Tucson.

Cherie Fraine, Psychic, Reiki Master, Shamanic Journeys
  Quote from a Psychic

I asked psychic Cherie Fraine, "What do people ask about? Are there common themes and topics?"

She answered:

"They ask if they are doing the right thing. Should they apply for a certain job? If they apply for the job, will they get it? If they have not applied for the job yet, I can't tell them much because they have not done anything to get the job. If they haven't applied, they haven't made the "cause" which can lead to the "effect" of getting the job. Should they apply for the job? Of course! Especially, if it's something they want to do. They have to open the door. Within certain parameters, I can tell them things fairly clearly, but if they haven't done anything, everything is still up in the air.

"People ask about jobs, about boyfriends and girlfriends, whether they should or shouldn't get married. I tell them that if they don't know what to do, they shouldn't do anything. When they absolutely have to do something, they will know exactly what to do."

Cherie Fraine

I like the idea that we must make an effort to move forward in life. Before the Universe can help us get the job, we have to apply for it! It's not all about what the Universe can do for us. We have to show initiative, then the Universe can assist us.

Cherie Fraine is the subject of the tenth interview which has become a Kindle e-book. Cherie is a Psychic and a Reiki Master. She also takes people on Shamanic Journeys so that they can have their own psychic experiences. In the 1970s, Cherie went through a testing process and was certified as 95% - 100% accurate. In her interview, Cherie discusses the difference between "spirit time" and "people time," and explains how she uses Tarot cards to determine the timing of future events. Cherie noted that many people with psychic abilities are here as volunteers to help other people get to the place where they won't have to come back anymore.

I am placing the psychics' interviews in the Kindle store so that people can read the details of the conversations. It takes about 30 minutes to read each interview. They cost 99 cents. If you want to read about Cherie, click here. If you want to see short bios of the 10 people who have interviews online, check the Psychics Speak page of this website.

New news. Saturday night I am going to be interviewed by Kermie Wohlenhaus for her local cable-access TV show. The show will be aired later. I'm excited about this upcoming interview. I'll let you know when you can watch it on TV or as a You-Tube video (Isn't that how things are done these days? Directly from the studio to the TV to You-Tube). Wish me luck!

Blog. Speak. Write.

Blog. Speak. Write.

I spent the weekend at the Tucson Festival of Books, strolling from workshops to panel discussions to presentations. I heard tons of advice for writing and marketing our work. I met authors, bloggers, lawyers, and TV personalities. Let me share what I heard.


Writers must blog to interact with readers. And, because blogging is writing, we are the people most apt to enjoy this activity. In the past, bloggers were told to stick to their topic most of the time. The new advice is that we can blog about anything. People read blogs to learn about a topic (such as psychics), but they also read to get to know the author. Did you ever have a friend who talked about only one thing? Boring. Taking this to heart, I'll try to branch out and hit a few topics. Anyone want to hear about my dog? My car? What I ate for dinner?

As for technical issues, we were advised that every blog entry should have a photo, a discussion, and internal tags, so that the blog can be indexed by Google and people can find the work. You'll note that my blogs don't have these items. My web hosting software doesn't allow those features. What should I do? I could change to another host and lose all the information on this site, but that doesn't make sense. I'll mull this over (again) then, perhaps, I'll blog about it. Smile


One way for writers to promote ideas is to speak to groups. So far, I've done five Book Talks in front of generally small audiences. I need to find new venues. Do any of you belong to groups which are looking for speakers?

At the Book Festival, I picked up a brochure for Toastmasters, the organization which trains speakers, and I may give that a whirl. I also ran into a colleague who asked if I wanted to be on her TV show this weekend to talk about my work. Serendipity. Of course, I would like to be a guest. [This is where we get back to the psychic/spiritual work. Was it just a coincidence that people told me to speak more, then a great opportunity came my way? We call that "synchronicity."]

We'll tape the show this weekend and, if I don't embarrass myself, I'll let you know where and when you can view it.


So far, I've written five years of blogs, published a book about psychics, and uploaded about 10 e-book interviews. Authors need to publish a variety of books so that readers have choices. For a couple of years, I've been wondering what my next book might be. I think I need to write a shorter book about psychic abilities. The first book contains "Everything I ever wanted to know . . ." but not everyone wants to know that much. Some people prefer shorter books. Or, I could develop a book about psychic readings from the client's point of view. You know, "How working with a psychic changed my life." What do you think? What do you want to read?

Other things I heard at the Book Festival:

We are still discussing legacy publishing, self-publishing, and hybrid publishing. Everyone must pick the path which is right for them.

We discussed editing, publicity, book covers, social media, social media, and social media. I blog, am on Facebook (My Psychic Search), and Tweet (@GailKushner). Apparently, I should also pin, tumble, and post photos of cats.

Things I did not hear:

I didn't hear an e-book discussion. E-books are part of life. They are no longer a subject of debate. People assume that every printed book will become an e-book (but not that every e-book will be printed).

I didn't hear much about technology, book formatting, or how to upload books to CreateSpace or Lightning Source. It seems that these jobs have been handed over to the experts. Writers write. When possible, they hire people to format and upload their books. They hire editors and cover designers. Writers no longer need to be techies. We need to work with our strengths.

However, farming out the editorial and techie work increases the up-front publishing costs. It costs around $2-5,000 to produce a book. This is after the author has worked without pay for months, or years, to write the book. Book development costs are incurred by the author even if the book is brought to market by a traditional publisher. These days, authors must hire editors and do marketing. Traditional publishers no longer provide complete editing. Have you noticed that recently-published books have typos and plot inconsistencies? The traditional levels of editing are no longer being provided by publishers. Authors are now responsible for hiring out this work.

To my surprise, this figure of $2-5000 did not include the cost of book printing. However, a couple of authors said that this cost did include uploading the book to a Print-On-Demand (POD) site. When a reader purchases a book from a POD site, the reader pays the printing and shipping costs. Authors no longer need to print hundred of books and wait for someone to buy them. The downside to the author is that they make little money from POD books.

So much to know. So much to do. So much to be. It's a lot, but it's great to have choices and control over our products. Twenty years ago, none of this was possible. Now, we can write about ancient wisdom while using 21st Century technology. Life is good.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Learning Lessons vs. Having Experiences

Learning Lessons vs. Having Experiences

Why are we here?

Psychics are able to tap into information from "the other side," because there is "another side." We are all souls traveling back and forth between the physical and non-physical realms. Why do we keep coming back? We circle through lifetimes, gathering the experiences which help our souls evolve. We try new activities just to see what they are like. In doing these activities, we learn about ourselves and we strive towards perfecting our soul.

When I first began interviewing psychics, they told me that we were here to learn lessons. However, the message changed as I interviewed more and more people. What did it change to? Two parts: (1) the only lesson we are here to learn is to love ourselves; and (2) other than that, we are here to experience things. Most of our challenges help us to refine our perception of ourselves; to better understand and appreciate ourselves. Every other experience is just about trying something new and having some fun. Trying a new food just to see if we like it. Traveling to a new place just to find out what it is like. Talking to someone who we don't know well.

We are born with an overview of the things we are here to experience, such as marriage, love, wealth, or poverty. We also have a project to work on which contributes to society. We have pre-arranged the people we are to meet to achieve our goals. The basics are outlined, but we still have free will. With our free will, we can try anything which appeals to us.

This week, try something new just to see how it goes. Try a new restaurant, or a new walking path. Try to learn something or have some fun. It's a big beautiful world of experiences. Pick one.

For my adventure, I am going to the Tucson Festival of Books this weekend. It should be a wonderful event.

"Psychics Speak" Update

"Psychics Speak" is the name I've given to my interview-publishing work. One by one, I am uploading the individual interviews with the psychics so that book readers can fully understand what it is like to be psychic. Earlier this week, I published the interview with Erik Von Assman. Erik is an Empath, a Reiki Master, and a Spiritual Counselor. You can find Erik's story as a short Kindle e-book. It only costs 99 cents to find out what it is like to live in two worlds at once.

Discover the other interviews which have been uploaded by clicking on the "Psychics Speak" page of this website. Then, purchase a few and let me know what you think.

Have a great week!

Are we pieces of a Universal Mind?

Quote from a Psychic - Are we pieces of a Universal Mind?

During our interview, Gary Wimmer said:

"If everything could be known, does that imply that the future is written in stone? The answer is, 'No.' The whole creation experience is, first of all, just an imagination. It can change the rules at any moment and be something else. It just falls from Possibility A to Possibility B. We don't even notice the shift. It's an invisible shift of consciousness that creates one outcome, instead of another outcome. Russia and the U.S. could have blown each other up during the Cold War, but we didn't. A good step for mankind."

I asked: Do you think we're just pieces of a universal mind?
"Absolutely. Absolutely. Without question."

It's a whole different way of thinking about things.
"Yes, but we are indeed all parts of one Universal and Infinite Mind, aspects of Infinite imagination. As earth souls, we usually incarnate into groups, like families, societies, countries and/or cultures, and we experience group mindsets and challenges, as well as individual ones. There are infinite creations out there, some physical and some not.

"We are the earthly souls, and we go through these earth lives for numerous reasons, but it's all by choice. There are no accidents; there are no coincidences. Everything is cause and effect, and we are here by cause and effect. Divine Imagination endowed us with free will, choice and creativity, and what we experience is what we created, collectively and individually."

Six Interview Questions for Me

Six Interview Questions

I was interviewed by a student for his English class. I thought you might find this interesting. These are his questions and my answers.

Question 1: What do psychics believe in?

If you are asking about religion, I have interviewed psychics from all religious backgrounds. People grew up in whatever religious tradition their family followed. Along the way, they discovered that they had gifts and were able to communicate directly with unseen entities, such as angels, Spirit Guides, or God. What they believe in is a larger picture of our universe where there are spirits which we cannot see, but which we can contact for information which informs our lives. There is a bigger earth system which includes both the physical system and the non-physical system. Then, there is an even bigger universe in which we live.

As souls, we travel from "side" to "side." By that I mean that sometimes we have incarnations on earth, and sometimes we exist on "the other side." Only, "the other side" isn't really a "side." It is a form of energy which vibrates at a higher frequency than we can see. The other side can be right next to us, but we are not aware of it because most of us don't see it. The best metaphor I have heard is that we can't see spirits on the other side because they are vibrating too quickly for us to see them. It's like a fan. When the fan is at rest, you see the blades. But, when the fan is working, the blades are rotating too fast to see the individual blades.

Souls have many incarnations in physical bodies so that they can experience all facets of life. Sometimes they experience being poor, sometimes they experience being rich. Souls can show up as any ethnicity, race, or gender, just to see what that life experience is like.

Another major concept which people have shared is that they believe that there is a universal force working throughout the universe. You can call this force God, or Source, or All that Is. This energy source is composed of love. Love is the force which keeps the universe in motion.

Question 2: How does someone become a psychic, or are you born with it?

Most people who are highly intuitive were born with the gift. They had odd experiences as children and, later, figured out that they were psychic. Perhaps they saw ghosts, or they knew what someone was thinking before the words were said. These children thought everyone was like that, but when they shared what they knew, they were told it was just their imagination. They often shut down their abilities until they figured out that they were psychic and began to wonder what they could do. Then, they explored their gifts.

A few of the people who I interviewed were born into this life remembering the other side, knowing about their gifts, and knowing what they came here to do. Other people had normal childhoods and were able to develop their gifts through years of work and study.

Question 3: How do visions work?

Well, the quick answer is "people see them." That's how visions work. I think the deeper question you are asking is how does inter-realm communication work? Lots of answers to that question.

I have a whole checklist of psychic abilities. Some people tell me that they see images in their mind; other people tell me that they can see things in real life. For example, they will see someone's deceased relative standing next to that person. They will see the deceased person wearing an outfit, or doing something, which will help the client identify the spirit. For example, they will see an older guy, smoking a pipe with cherry tobacco, and the client will know that that is their grandfather.

Other psychics don't see things. Instead, they may hear words or phrases. They can hear this voice in their head or "out there."

Other psychics don't see or hear information. Instead they just "know." One psychic told me that she could know something as clearly as I could know that my computer was in front of me.

Other psychics "feel" information. They are empathic and can feel whatever the client is feeling. They use this sense to help the person look at an issue and discover new perspectives.

Some psychics just open their mouths and words come pouring out. They allow information to flow from Spirit, through them, to the client.

All of the psychics with whom I have spoken tell me that they do this work to help people. It would be much easier to keep quiet about their gifts, but they know that they were given these gifts so that they could help their friends and clients to live better, richer lives.

Question 4: I was wondering if there was a uniform psychic way of doing something? From what you have said it seems like there is no one way of doing something but multiple ways.

You're right. There is no uniform way of being psychic. Everyone has a unique way of doing their work. Somehow, they manage to tap into an invisible information source.

Question 5: Is there a difference between Hollywood psychics and real psychics?

The big difference between Hollywood psychics and real psychics is that Hollywood psychics seem to get huge, clear messages. Actual psychics get bits and pieces of messages and information which they share with their client. The psychic tries to put the bits and pieces together to make a clear message, but the psychic doesn't want to interpret the message because they don't want to put their own spin on it.

Question 6: It sounds like people from any culture or race or religion can become a psychic. Is this true?

Yes, people from all races, religions, cultures, ethnicities, and genders can be psychic.


There is so much more to this that I could write a whole book. Wait! I did. I wrote a book entitled, "My Psychic Search: discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives." I also have five years worth of blogs which should answer all of your other questions.

Thank you!

Quote from a Psychic - Animal Communication

Quote from a Psychic - Animal Communication

I asked Erik Von Assman, an empath, if he was able to communicate with animals and this is what he told me:

"I love animals. Communicating with animals is soft and gentle. They don't have lives in their heads. They are "cleaner." They can be easier to read than humans. Sometimes people just have static in their heads.

"We have an empathic connection. I feel what they feel. Mammals and birds are very interesting. A couple of generations back there was a powerful animal psychic in my family.

"Personally, I really like grey squirrels and raccoons. I used to make friends with raccoons. I would sit outside and gossip with them. I used to have animals show up at my apartment in Port Townsend. One day a small, orange cat ran in through an open door, laid by my bedroom and curled up. I bond well with cats. Cats understand me."

When Psychics Die

When Psychics Die

A psychic/Medium friend of mine had a psychic friend die a couple of weeks ago. The dying woman lingered in hospice care for quite a while. She was at the edge of life, and she hung on much longer than people expected. You might think that a psychic, knowing what lay ahead and knowing that she would be out of pain, would be eager to move on. At least, that's what I thought.

My psychic/Medium friend often visited the dying woman, as did many members of their church community. My friend suspected that the sick woman was not leaving her body because she was giving her church family time to come together. Some of these people had not seen each other for a while and this woman's "lingering" provided the opportunity for them to reconnect.

Then, the sick woman died. She shed her physical body and her energy shifted into the non-physical realm.

So, what happens when psychics die? Mediums on this side are still able to communicate with them.

My friend talked with her deceased friend and asked why she had hung on so long? The woman replied that all of her visitors had held her hand and loved her, and she had basked in the love of the people who came to say good-bye. It felt good. Even unconscious, she felt their love.

When someone is ready to leave their physical body, an Angel of Transition comes to assist them. We might hold a frightening concept of the Grim Reaper, or the Angel of Death, but these images are not accurate. The Angel of Transition helps the person understand what is happening and comforts them. This Angel surrounds the person with love and eases their transition.

Death is a shedding of the physical body and a rebirth into the energetic world. At some future time, souls can choose to return to the Earth plane. This is also a transition. It is a rebirth into the physical world. A portion of our spirit, our Higher Self, remains on the other side guiding our physical life. This is the Wheel of Incarnation. This is the circle of life.

Any thoughts? Send your e-mails to me at If you are interested in discussing this topic with a psychic or Medium, you can find several of them at this Sunday's Psychic Fair at the Windmill Inn.
