The Future of "My Psychic Search" Project

The Future of My Psychic Search Project

When I started My Psychic Search Project, I interviewed psychics about what they did and what they knew. I was fascinated with psychic ability because, over the years, so many psychics had told me about my life and had provided information I could use to create the life I wanted. After 36 interviews, and publishing a book, I stopped interviewing psychics. I paused to put the interviews online so everyone could read them. They are full of "aha" moments. I am still working on this part of the Project.

What happened when I paused the interviews? A whole lot of channeling came my way. I started listening to several people who channeled messages, and I began writing about the information they shared. This information was not as personal as what I heard previously. It was more universal in nature. It applied to everyone.

I learned how we usually begin our lifetimes as lower vibrational entities and, over a series of lives, we evolve into higher vibrational energies. How do we do this? We have enlightening moments and, if we recognize them and work with them, we can increase our vibration and grow. Many people get stuck in the lower vibrational energies for multiple lifetimes. They become so accustomed to what they are doing, that they want to do it lifetime after lifetime, but they always have a choice. When they pass into spirit, they can choose to further educate themselves and decide to try a different kind of lifetime, or they can return to Earth to fight and maim some more.

Eventually, most of us choose more-peaceful lives. However, many enlightened souls volunteer to live turbulent lives, or live in desperate areas, so that they can assist other souls who are living tempestuous lives, and help these souls see that there are other ways of living.

Back to me and my work. I have a lot of questions. I want to know how all of this works, from beginning to end (okay, there really is no beginning and no end, but you know what I mean). Everything makes sense on a large scale, but when I look at the individual pieces, I want to know, specifically, how can we make new choices? What happens on the other side? How do we work with Guides and our Higher Self to figure out what to do next?

Over the years, several psychics have illuminated my personal path. It's fascinating hear the same thing from different people, in different locations, at different times. I have accepted an assignment to ask questions, hear answers, and present the answers to you. I am a reporter. My gift is an ability to figure out the questions. My work is to find the right people to answer those questions, to record and transcribe what I hear, and to present it to you on this blog, in a book, or some other way.

I knew that I had agreed to do this work seven years ago. At that time, I had thought My Psychic Search would grow bigger, faster. I guess I had a lot to learn before this Project could blossom.

These are some of the encouraging messages I have received through psychics:

In 2011: It's going to be huge. I see "Julia and Julia." I see it getting big. They are showing you taking off the cobwebs and removing the misunderstandings and bringing in what is real.

The message that they want to get across to you is about your book. It's going to do something. What you are doing, what your spiritual roles is, is important. It's about removing the cobwebs; about cleaning up things and bringing things together.

June 24, 2014: You are bouncing the ball and bouncing the ball and you say, "I can only bounce this so long. Yes, I know I have to practice to bounce the ball, but I want to know when I am going to knock it over the net. I want to know when I'm going to goal. I want to know when I am going to score." Not a single bounce has been wasted, either for you or for those around you, and the bouncing is creating a vibration and a resonance of you moving forward, upward in your desire to get the ball over the net. Don't be in too big a hurry, my dear, for right now are part of the richest times in the vibrations that are transpiring.

February 2015: It is important for you to ask the questions that others do not ask, but are inquiring within themselves. You are what we will call, "our newspaper." The information is there, but someone has to glean it and give it accurately, so people can accept it, or not accept it. You give it a clarity and a truth that everyone can apply, or not apply, as they see fit. Your gift is that you do not give it a weight one way or the other. You simply report and state what you see, and let all make their own conclusions. That is how we teach. That is how we guide.

[The idea is] to allow the information to be freely shared, and let those draw upon the energy as they see fit and correct and true for them at this time. Truth can be assimilated to the level at which the vessels are tuned and vibrated and geared and prepared. Not all can savor the same thing. Think of a child when it is first developing; when it starts to digest. The digestive system could not handle heavier meals when they are young and not quite developed.

We highly recommend that you place yourself in a state of anticipatory receptiveness, of "gifts greater than you know to ask," so that you can assimilate them with ease, gently, and with grace and balance. It is like someone who says, "I want to be healthy so I'm going to take this whole bottle of vitamins." That will not bring health, nor can their body tolerate it. When you are striving to know, and assimilate, and be, and live, at a higher vibrational level, always ask for it to be as gently and as swiftly, as your body can assimilate with grace and ease.

Your mental capacity is going to expand what you know to ask as you place yourself in this state of receptivity. Questions will abound, but so will answers.

Also, spend time asking questions while you blog. If you were to be the voice of society, the voice of people at your level of development, what questions would you ask?

Bless the blog and state, "Those who are clearly on the path of seeking truth will be drawn to this, cannot overlook it." You want to draw people who are ready, who are blossoming at higher desires, and take their questions, and what they want to know, and be the voice for them.

June 2015:

How do I get information to people? What will it look like?

Dissemination to the best of your ability, whether it be verbally, in print, and/or electronically; all of that is disseminating. You know not where it lands. It is important to put it out there. We are asking of you exactly what you are doing at this time: setting aside time to collectively come together and let Spirit come through so that you have wisdom, pearls of wisdom, that you can annotate to be pressed and shared with people. What it ends up looking like, or being, is not what you are going for. It is not the end result. That is putting pressure on you to create something, and that is not the purpose of these talks. These talks are to illumine, enlighten, and guide. That you share those, in and of itself, will create what it needs to create. We are not giving specifics because it is no different than trying to define Spirit. The minute you define how it should appear or look, you have limited it, and this is a limitless transmission of information.

These are the messages I am receiving. This is what working with a psychic looks like.

My spiritual understanding is evolving as I spend time on this Project. I have a lot to learn! I am one of the many people lucky enough to hear messages from Spirit (through psychics and channelers) and be able to share them with you. It is such an honor.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'll report back to you.

Quote from a Psychic - Jackie Chin

Quote from a Psychic - Jackie Chin

I asked Jackie, How do you do your work?

She answered:

"I have the client think about specific questions which are immediately affecting his/her life. Usually those concerns have a lot of energy behind them. It is as if they have a high energy or a spark to them; like a lit match. Once the initial question is asked, I tend to go backwards in time to where the initial spark of energy came from. Everything has a beginning and an end. It is easier for me to go backwards in time for a few reasons. People know their past and their situation. They also know that I do not know anything about them. So once I get the information for them about what initially happened, they relax and I can move more easily into their current energy and get the answers that they are seeking. If someone is relaxed, it's easier to work with them than if they are tense. Even skeptics relax after I tell them where they have been. It's a real ice breaker."

"I don't hear actual voices. I get a knowing. I know that something will happen. This knowing is separate from seeing images because when I get a knowing message I don't see an image attached to it. Images do come, yes, when I am working with a client. I see the people they are asking about, places where they have been, or places where they are going. Sometimes they flash very quickly, like an image passing by at a very fast speed. Usually those images are short lived, 20-60 seconds at best. However, there are images which linger for hours and, sometimes, for days. I can go back to them and examine them. Those images are like mental snapshots. They are more like a memory than a quick image."


Jackie has provided psychic readings for more than 30 years. Since our interview in 2010, Jackie has developed "Zombiepalooza," a highly-popular Internet radio show.

Psychic Channeling

"Pull Out the Positive" Challenge

How did the "Pull out the Positive Challenge" go? I found it very difficult when something negative came up and I had to find the positive in it. However, it made me think about the situation instead of reacting, so that's a good thing. It also made me realize that while "overwhelming positive" is great for soul growth, poking fun at things is kinda fun.

How does Psychic Channeling work?

On Tuesday, I posted a channeled message which had come through Leah Taylor several years ago. I hear channeled messages from several people, so I thought I would write more about how channeling works. There are two basic kinds of channeling: conscious and unconscious (trance channeling).

A person who communicates with non-physical entities may be known as a Channeler. These people talk to non-physical individuals or spiritual groups. The entities and groups are clearly distinct from the individual who is channeling them.

In most cases, channeling is different from a psychic reading in that a reading is more like a conversation, a quick back-and-forth with questions being asked and answered, while channeling is more like a long, automatic message which comes through all at once. The channeler opens their mouth and a message pours forth without the person having to think about what they are saying.

Another distinction is the audience. Psychics generally read for clients one-on-one. Channelers usually have an audience ranging from several people to a full auditorium.

In some cases, channeling feels like receiving a block of thought all at once, then having to find the words to describe it. In other cases, the channel may hear words and voice them. The person remains conscious and in their body. This kind of communication is known as "Conscious Channeling."

The other kind of channeling is called "Trance Channeling." This is when the person in the body steps aside and spiritual entities are allowed to enter the body and use the human voice. This kind of work often addresses broad issues relating to humanity, such as why people come to Earth and how reincarnation works.

Of course, as with all things spiritual, each person works in a unique way and these basic kinds of channeling can blend into a hybrid of conscious and trance channeling.

I asked six people how channeling worked for them. These are their answers.

Channeler #1, Trance Channeler

"When I channel, I let my Guides come into my body. To start a session, we do a meditation. You are welcome to ask questions and steer the conversation wherever you want it to go. This is participatory. If you have ideas or questions, you can ask them. The personalities will change if a different Guide wants to come in to talk. That can happen and that's fine. Generally, they keep the eyes closed because they are getting the hang of using the body and they have a hard time with bright light. As a matter-of-fact, I am going to use sunglasses. The body is new to them because they don't have bodies. When they come in, they open their eyes and it seems much brighter to them than it does to us.

"I have three main Guides who work with me who I expect will be coming through. They take turns coming into the body. You can ask who you are talking to and they will let you know about themselves. A new Guide has recently come in and she is a very motherly energy."

Channeler #2, Hybrid Channeler

"I take my consciousness and I put it down here [by her right hip]. I have a little room here. I have a Guide who is a protector. We were together many years ago. He's here to make sure everybody is a good guy. I stay there. I can hear everything. When they look for a word, I'm down there trying to give it to them; but, they will say a totally different word. They move me around a lot. There is so much energy going through my body that I can get up, walk around, and open my eyes. I've done that before, but there is no need.

"I don't leave. I hear the message and I remember it for about 10 minutes. If you remind me later, and you have a question, I can answer it."

Channeler #3, Conscious Channeler

For this person, channeled messages are often part of her work with clients.

"It's almost like a part of my brain steps aside and I let this other part come through. It comes through very quickly, as fast as thought. I say it to the clients almost at the speed I get it so my working brain doesn't have time to interfere and say, ‘Don't go there. That would be rude.' For me, I give it just the way I get it and it tends to pick up speed very quickly. I say what Spirit tells me and sometimes I can't believe the things which come out of my mouth. I have asked to be ‘divine loving truth.' I see, hear, and feel.

"Sometimes people try to come through my body, but I won't let them. If someone from the other side wants to talk to the client, I tell the person I am reading, and the person who is trying to come through, that they have no permission to speak through my body. I will not give that permission, but I will tell the client verbatim what the entity is saying. For me, this is a very respectful way to work."

During pure channeling sessions, she remarked,

"First they say something and I think, ‘I can't say that.' Then they repeat it. I wait. If I say it, it takes over, like a floodgate. I don't even know what I have said, but it makes sense to others."

"When I channel, I stay in my body. There is a reason a bit of me is left here. That little bit of control. I am not willing to give over control. I keep one foot on the ground. I will not give an energy permission to speak through me, unless it is Christ, Mother Mary, or someone I trust."

Channeler #4, Hybrid Channeler

I asked Channeler #4, "When you channel, are you hearing words and repeating them, or is it coming through you automatically?"

He answered, "Yes."

"The first time I channeled, I heard the words in my mind, ‘I am Zeus.' I was thinking yeah, yeah. I heard it again, ‘I am Zeus.' Okay. Something inside me said, ‘Open your mouth and let it come.' So I opened my mouth and said, ‘I am Zeus,' and it started coming. I didn't hear the words to say, it just started coming.

"A lot of times when I channel, I hear the words that I need to start with. That is enough to get me to open my mouth and allow Spirit to come through. Sometimes, I don't have to hear it, I just go. A lot of times, I hear the starter words. It's like priming the pump. I just have to say them. I have to have enough courage to open my mouth and say what I am hearing, then I don't hear it anymore. It just comes. The answer is ‘yes' to both."

"There is a part of me that is still here. I try to get that part out of the way. I move out of the way, but I'm not floating up there somewhere. I hear it, but I don't remember all of it."

Channeler #5, Trance Channeler

"I don't hear anything. I am not here. Consciously, I am gone. I have no idea what was said."

"I've always wondered where it comes from. Since your Higher Self is literally in control, I think that the Higher Self is the gatekeeper. If it is someone like Zeus, the Higher Self backs out of the way and lets that energy in. When I first started channeling, I wanted a gatekeeper to protect me because I had all these ideas and fears, ‘Oh, if you leave your body, someone else is going to take over.' I realized that nothing can take over if my Higher Self is in control. My Higher Self is the gatekeeper."

Channeler #6, Conscious Channel

"I hear some words. I get a block of thought and I have to translate it into words. Then, I relax and let go, and it just comes out. I'm not thinking about it. I don't remember it all. I hear it at the time. Part of me is still in my body. I have stopped trying to control and worry about what the next words are going to be."

Fascinating, eh?

Let me know what you think.

Who you really are

Quote from a Psychic Channeling - Leah Taylor/Anneo

"Who you really are is infinite, is any game you want to play, it's anything you want to do here, anything you want to learn about, anything you want to feel. It is not going to look the same for everybody. Wealth consciousness isn't always going to be about being a millionaire for every person. Love isn't going to look the same for everybody. Just like no two relationships are going to be the same. But it's the feeling which goes behind it. It's what you want to experience, it's the experience of it, that is what life is all about.

"Get back to that force of knowing that you are not from here, that this is a game that you are playing. This is one of the hardest things about working with humans: you try to tell them that, ‘This isn't really you.' This is just you today or you this lifetime, or you with this background and this body and these friends and this upbringing and this life; but it's not You. You are much, much bigger than that.

"When you can remember that, when you can connect with that even for just a few moments, it can change your life. It can give you the strength to change anything that you need to change in the way that you are living. That way you are never trapped. You realize there are infinite possibilities. It's not right or wrong, except by the context of the role your character is playing. If you don't like it, then you change it."

The "Pull Out the Positive" Challenge

The "Pull Out the Positive" Challenge

For one reason or another, I rarely get a good night's sleep before doing the monthly Psychic Fair. I have to get up early, finish packing my car, drag myself to the DoubleTree Inn, and set up my table. DRAG myself.

For the last several months, I have been set up at the fair next to John Hunter, an intuitive massage therapist. He is relentlessly positive, while I am always exhausted. John never sees me in my best mood. After we chat for a while, John reminds me that we are here to "pull the positive" out of every situation. Fine. Just fine. John can expound on any topic and end up with "pull out the positive." I grumble to my tired self, but I know he's right.

In fact, I have heard this idea from three psychics in the last month, so I'll pass it along to you too. It seems to be a theme.

Laurie Hays, an intuitive reader, reminded me that thoughts have a vibration. If we look for the most-positive aspect in every situation, we find it. If we look for the negative, we find it. Both are logical and pragmatic. We can choose the way we think, and our thoughts will affect our personal vibration. She mentioned an old proverb: There are two wolves, a kind one and a mean one. Which one survives? The one you feed.

Searching for the positive is a technique for growth. It helps us overcome adversity and not get mired in the negative. Yesterday, I opened this month's Oprah Magazine (July 2015) to find an article on Post-Traumatic Growth (PTG). After a difficult situation, some people suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), while other people are able to pull the good out of the crisis, and grow.

In every circumstance, there is a silver lining. Several years ago, Gabby Giffords was shot in Tucson, six people were killed and 13 were wounded. It was a terrible tragedy. Did any good come out of it? Every year, we celebrate the lives of the people who were affected by the shooting (and that means ALL of us). We remind ourselves that wonderful people populate this planet. The little girl who was murdered has a park named after her. Tucson pulled together to overcome this tragedy, while still remembering and celebrating the lives of those who were killed and injured.

Another example? One psychic reminded me that whenever we see something we think is terribly evil, somehow, that energy can be changed and transmuted into something positive. If not for the Holocaust, Israel would not exist.

After 9/11, New York came together as a community in a way that it had never before come together. The attack appeared to be evil, but good came out of it.

More recently, the mass shooting at the South Carolina church was a terrible event, yet community members were willing to come together in forgiveness and reconciliation. Now, some long-held prejudices are being acknowledged and dismantled.

We are here to grow. We put ourselves in scenarios that limit us physically so we can activate, remember, or reconnect, with the largest part of ourself, which is not physical. We shouldn't allow ourself to slip into negativity. We are not here for that. We are here to find the beauty and the love in all things, at all times. It is that simple.

John explained that our job is to go through life acknowledging different aspects of ourselves and pulling the positive out of our challenges. Challenges are put in our path so that we can grow, learn, and expand.

We can review past patterns which held us back. If we didn't deal with them efficiently, we will probably have to deal with them again. However, every time a situation re-appears, we are stronger than the previous time. We can apply love to the situation, then disconnect from it. We can draw the positive energy from it and use that for our next big step.

When we identify patterns, we can choose how we think about them. We can tag patterns as negative or positive. According to John, this is the most important thing we will do in our life. If we tag every event with a positive aspect, we will be enlightened. We will be free.

John provided the example of a person whose dog had died. The person could continue to see everybody playing outside with their dogs and wallow in grief, thinking, "Everyone else is enjoying their dog, and my dog died." That could take ten years to get over. Or, they could evaluate the short time they were with the dog and focus on the emotional development, the times they learned responsibility for caring for another being, and how much they grew. They could look at the positive aspects of the experience, instead of focusing on the dog's death.

When you find the positive in every challenge, you blow the doors off of limitation, and love can be placed into every situation, at every level. Love is forgiveness, acceptance, faith, belief, and understanding.

This week, when you find yourself frustrated or in a sour mood, I challenge you to "Pull Out the Positive" from the situation. Apply love in every case, especially the difficult ones. Send love to every person with whom you disagree. Ask: What good can come of this?

See if it makes a difference. Be relentlessly optimistic. Can you handle it? Let me know what happens.

And remember that the people who challenge you, the people who you think are nuts, always provide a good story. The crazier they are, the better the tale. ;)

Quote from a Medium - Marianne Patyk
 Quote from a Medium - Marianne Patyk

As a child, Marianne Patyk's deceased relatives visited her. However, as she grew into adulthood, her gifts faded. Then, they returned.

"In my 40's, I had a great emotional trauma which brought forward my abilities as a Medium. I started hearing things I had never heard before. My experience is similar to what happened to Whoopi Goldberg's character in the movie Ghost: suddenly I started hearing a lot of information from people who had crossed over.

"I was nervous. It was stronger and more potent than when I was a child. I started smelling aromas and hearing things. It was an overload. I had to learn how to control it and work with it. It's almost like wishful thinking. You want to see your loved ones after they have crossed over, but it doesn't happen . . . then it begins to happen again. I had to learn how to manage it all over again. I had to figure out what abilities I had as a Medium and which tools I had. I looked on-line to see what I had. Then I had to accept and embrace it."

Marianne Patyk

Marianne was the only person I interviewed who told me that she had had epilepsy and seizures since childhood. She believed that the way her brain functioned facilitated her psychic abilities. Epilepsy, brain trauma, and life trauma, had combined to make Marianne a very accurate Medium.

If you want to read Marianne's full interview, it is now available as a 99 cent Kindle e-book. It is the 20th interview in the "Psychics Speak" Series. You can find the interview on, by clicking this link.

Read, Write, and Blue

Read, Write, and Blue

In honor of July 4th, I'm going to share with you what I read, what I write, and a few things which make me blue.


There are a several websites and blogs which I love to read. You might enjoy them too. Here are a few:

1) Ever wondered what people have to say about their lives after they are dead? One woman shares the messages she receives from people who have passed on at

2) Every day, I receive an inspirational Note from the Universe. You can sign up for the free notes at

3) Linda Stein-Luthke & Dr. Martin Luthke share their communications with Ascended Masters through their website at Expansion Publishing. To get the free information, click on the newsletter tab, then sign up. It's well worth it. Http://

4) Paul and Holly Marwood blog communications from Ascended Masters at

5) Mercedes Kirkel channels Mary Magdalene and shares their conversations on her blog at

6) Just for fun, I read this career woman/mother/wife's blog at

7) I also love reading a good story. I recently borrowed a library book. I had no idea what it was going to be and it pleasantly surprised me. It's a great feeling to want to read more just to see how things turn out.

For years, I only read non-fiction. Now, I read fiction while I write non-fiction. Which brings me to the next topic:


1) The e-book version of My Psychic Search: discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives, is on sale until July 15, 2015. This is the first time I've put it on sale, reducing the price from $9.99 to $4.99 at It's time for a good summer read.

2) I post to this blog at least twice each week. I love sharing this info with you and getting your feedback.

3) Every now and then, I randomly click a link to the archives (listed on the left side of this page) just to read what I had previously written. Had the information held up? Was is well written or full of typos? Most of the time, I am pleased with what I find. All this info about psychics has held up through the years. (Yay!) You're welcome to randomly click a link and see what you uncover.


A couple of things I allow to make me blue:

1) I haven't started working with my pendulum.

2) I still don't think I receive many messages directly from Spirit Guides. Fortunately, I talk with lots of psychics who tell me very interesting things.

3) I have an outline for my next book, but I haven't started writing it yet. I'm having too much fun transcribing channeled messages (so that I'll have them to share with you online), to put much time into the next book. Gotta get on this.

Independence Day

I love my independence. I LOVE not having to report to a boss. I love listening to psychics, and anyone I can learn from. I enjoy being able to write about whatever moves me at the moment. I hope everyone can have this joyful feeling of pursuing the thing they love to do.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 5th of July too! On Sunday, the 5th, I'll be set up at our local Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, AZ. The Fair runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Come tell me what you love to read and write.

If there are websites you love, let me know about them.

Quote from a Psychic - Prophesy

Laurie Hays provides psychic readings and often has information about the future. However, the future is not set in stone. People have free will, can change their mind, and can modify the underlying situation. These changes can alter the future. Laurie remarked:

"The gift of prophesy is very simple to explain. However, it would take an open mind for someone to want to know and understand what it is. It's not difficult.

"A psychic might say, ‘You are going to wed at such-and-such a time,' and it does not happen. Perhaps someone is extremely hesitant and says, ‘I do not want to wed again,' and puts out that block. At that point, the person has changed their energy and changed the results.

"People are looking for the right answer in a very shifting, evolving element of life. What may have been right, true, and proper at one moment, may not be true five minutes later. That is why so many people have difficulty with the gift of prophesy for they say, ‘Things change so quickly. How can someone be so sure that something is going to happen?'

"There are many elements and many things which can change. People need to understand that what is being given to them is the answer when all things continue in the same direction, with people thinking as they are thinking, not expanding, not growing, not looking at different perspectives. ‘This is your likely outcome.' It is as logical as science would be, except individuals do not see that.

"‘If you continue to do what you are doing in the same way, this will happen.' However, if you were to change what we would call ‘the common denominator' which is YOU, yourself, without changing the situation, you will get a different result."

Laurie Hays

Laurie is one of the many intuitives and healers who plan to be at this Sunday's Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, Arizona. I will be there too.

Where do Great Ideas come from?

Where do Great Ideas come from?

Scientists tell us that ideas are generated in the brain. Spiritual people believe that good ideas are inspired/in-spirit-ed (come from "spirit.") All of my research has pointed to a connection from our physical brain, to our consciousness, to an expanded consciousness (which includes other people, Spirit Guides, angels, etc.), to our Higher Self, and on to Source. So when we have a great idea, or a creative solution, does it come from our brains, from Source, or from somewhere in-between?

I asked Laurie Hays and John Hunter about idea generation and they reminded me that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. There is no separation between our physical bodies, our consciousness, the group consciousness, our Higher Self, and Source. Everything flows together.

We learn simple things from experience and use that experience to expand our repertoire. As children, we learn to mix colors together to develop new colors. Yellow and blue make green. Once we understand how the process works, we can create more-complex colors. We have incorporated this idea into our brain and can run with it.

We can expand this simple idea of mixing colors to realize that we have experiences and learn new ways of doing things throughout each lifetime, and over a series of lifetimes. Our accumulated knowledge carries from lifetime to lifetime.

Ideas also comes from group experience, meaning that the collective consciousness influences thoughts. Sparks lead to sparks in like-minded people. When engineers work with engineers, they invent new products. When gardeners hang out with gardeners, they uncover new solutions to old problems. When people watch the news, or read the paper, they absorb new concepts.

People also receive whispered answers from Spirit Guides, angels, and their Higher Self.

I asked if there was a way to know how much of my good idea came from my brain and how much came from an outside source such as a Spirit Guide, my Higher Self, or the Universe? How much can we ascribe to our own thinking? Where do our thoughts end and outside input begin?

The answer is that there is no separation. It's all one thing. Our physical self blends with our Higher Self. When we need a solution beyond our grasp and we ask a question, our Higher Self is activated. Asking a question creates an avenue for information to come through. It opens the energy of the universe which is always in, and around, us. Everything is connected: our consciousness, the group consciousness, the energy of Spirit Guides and angels, our Higher Self, and Source.

John Hunter explains that if we say, "Universe, I would love to understand a particular topic," and we breathe love into that scenario and create a positive space, the information can come into that space and we can bathe in it. Things work out smoothly.

However, if we second guess ourself, if we ask a question, get information, then, instantly, our analytical self says, "I'm not sure about that. Where did that come from?" we lose focus. When we don't trust ourself and don't believe that the natural information can come through us, we strangle the thought. Our analytical mind, our physical aspect, gets in the way of our progress. Our physical self allows an aspect of fear to come in and block the pure information so we don't get a clear signal.

John added, "An enlightened being allows the information to flow freely. We all have that potential. If we did not allow fear to stop it, we would be enlightened beings. If there was a secret to being enlightened, it would be to eliminate fear. That applies to everything."

There is no separation between the energies. We try to differentiate things, but they are not separate. Everything is connected. It's all overlapping energy at different vibrations. Period. That's it.

Thank you Laurie and John for helping me to see how we are seamlessly connected to the Universe.

Let me know if this makes sense to you.

Opening Psychic Abilities

Quotes from Psychics - Opening Psychic Abilities

I asked a few psychics how they developed their gift, about the role of genetics, and if anyone can become psychic. Here are three answers.

Jesse Ann Nichols George

I am a 13th generation psychic, intuitive, spiritual healer, and advisor. 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.

I did a lot of self-study. I had a thirst for understanding. As I became aware of things, I needed to learn control. I needed to learn to harness the energy. I read books and watched shows about mysteries. When we went places, I always brought a gemstone home. When we went to carnivals, I went straight to the Fortune Tellers and the psychics. I was fascinated by how they could tell me things.

In time, teachers showed up.

Becoming a psychic takes a combination of things. One thing is our desire to be something and the willingness to put in the energy and the effort. We have to learn what it takes to become psychic, then we have to follow through and take the actions. Anyone can become psychic. We all have the whole universe within us. It is just whether we tap into it and actively use it or not. We all have the capacity for compassion, for hatred, and for everything else. We just have to tap into it and make it active in our lives.

For me, lineage is where the strength comes from. Someone with lineage may not have to do as much work because they have a natural gift. Things of this nature are passed down genetically. With genetics, people are more prone to be something. They have predispositions, but the predispositions can be changed. Psychic work is similar. We are dealing with an energy force and every time that energy is added to, generation after generation after generation, it strengthens and becomes more predominant.


My mother was very, very gifted. She told me about her dreams and how they came true. The gift of prophecy is one of the most difficult gifts to work with because it takes a great deal of wisdom. When you have a vision, how do you interpret it? What do you do with it? Because she had horrible experiences growing up, she discouraged me every time I began to experience something similar.

My great-grandmother was part of Mary Baker Eddy's Christian Science church. When my mom died, she had a book from my great-uncle which was signed by Mary Baker Eddy. She founded the religion which believed that you could heal through the power of the mind. Her books talk about working with the Light of G-d and working with other beings to become healthier. I come from a gifted family.

Becoming psychic is a combination of things. I had two near-death experiences (NDEs). I feel that my spirit chose this family to come in so that I could experience whatever I needed to experience. However, I think I would have opened up regardless of the family I was in because it was my purpose, my destiny, to develop these gifts. I have worked with angels and Master Spirits. Now, Hindu Guides are coming to me. Each belief system is like a subject I need to learn. I really feel that this is what I am here to do. Genetics may have made it easier, but I believe that everyone is gifted. Everyone, regardless of the family they were born into. If that's who they are, it's going to manifest.

Nancy Parsons

I am psychic because I allowed it. Anybody can tap into the cosmos. I don't think that you necessarily had to have had it three generations back. It is possible that it is in my family, but I've also seen people who are very psychic who don't have it elsewhere in their family. They went on a spiritual path, opened the door, got on the highway, and allowed it.

I have a friend who started doing yoga, then began teaching yoga. She went through all of the classes I went through and never felt like she was a Medium or a psychic. Now she has moved into a different place of meditation and she has gone into silence. She's starting to think that things are happening for her.

Hear it, Voice it, Vibrate it, Live it

Hear it, Voice it, Vibrate it, Live it

1) Request: If you read and enjoyed My Psychic Search book, could you please put a good review for the book on and/or GoodReads? Good reviews help readers discover books. If you haven't read the book, you can order a printed copy through this website, or an e-book through Thanks!

2) E-mail list: If you like the blog posts and want a weekly e-mail notice of new blog info, send your e-mail address to me. The e-mail sign up window is on the right side of the Home page. Or, you can use the e-mail link at the end of this blog post and say, "Add me."

3) Feel free to share the blog with your friends via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc. There are "sharing buttons" above the posts.

4) I think that there is going to be a lot of new info on the blog in the next few months. I can't leak details, but I received a HUGE message from Spirit.

If it turns out that I am doing this work mainly for my own soul growth, that's okay, but I sure like to think it's helping others too.

I like to think that blog readers might see a new way of looking at life.

I like to think that psychics might be considered with renewed respect.

I like to think that bringing these ideas into physical form allows people around the world to read them online and better understand their lives.

Any help you could provide to get the word out would be greatly appreciated.

5) Now, let's look at this idea of taking intuitive messages and translating them into words.

Hear it, Voice it, Vibrate it, Live it

Energy vibrations surround us and these vibrations hold information. When we are in the present moment and are open, we can access this knowledge. Some psychics work by accepting energy vibrations into their consciousness, then describing them in words.

In other cases, psychics may receives messages as images, or voices, in their head. They have to take this non-physical information and translate it into a language that their client can understand. Energy and information move from the non-physical realm into the psychic's consciousness, and are given a physical form by the voice box. Saying the message aloud brings the energy vibration into physical form. Taking in the energy, transforming it to speech, and sharing it with a client is like a vibrational release system.

Some people repeatedly channel the same kind of message. I asked why this happens and Spirit replied that these people need to hear the message over and over until they absorb the vibration. They need to hear it, voice it, vibrate it, and live it. It is imperative to hear it, hear it, hear it, hear it. Hearing the vibration of the channeled words changes the person's vibration. When the vibration has sunk in, the person will live the message. There is a difference between "believing" and "knowing." When the material has been integrated, it becomes part of the way the person lives.

If we receive intuitive messages, or if we pray privately, saying the words aloud allows us to absorb the vibration from our own voice. Hearing the words can raise our vibration.

Communal prayer is a good example of people generating and hearing positive voice vibrations. Because the vibrations reinforce them, the prayers can benefit the people who are praying, as well as the people for whom they are praying.

Music with uplifting lyrics also reinforces good vibrations. (Can you hear the Good Vibrations song in your head right now? You're welcome.)

What if the things we say aloud are negative or critical? The same process occurs: we absorb the negative vibrations and find life more challenging that it might need to be.

What about the thoughts and questions we have? Are they worth voicing? When we speak thoughts aloud, it gives room and permission for others to speak. They can follow our thoughts because their minds work in a similar manner. We often ask questions which others have been too shy to ask. Everyone appreciates the answer.

When working with a psychic, asking a question out loud gives the psychic permission to answer the question. It also opens the energy, allowing the Universe to provide an answer. Questions activate the avenues for information to come through.

Another way to bring messages into physical from is to write them down. As I listen to material and transcribe it, I assimilate it. Now that it is in tangible form, I can share it with you. And, if you choose, you can share it with others.

Let me know what you think.

Compassion and Joy

Growing Compassion and Living in Joy

Today's "Quote" comes from Susan Sampson's recent channeling. These ideas have been condensed for readability.


Think of your visits to Earth as stages in your growth from infancy to adulthood. As you manifested on Earth at different times, you were the infant, you were the child, you were the rebellious teenager, you were the suppressed woman, you were the overworked man, you were . . . well, you were just about everything. At this time, you are moving beyond babyhood into young adulthood. You have ceased to be all that you have been before. You have learned everything up until this absolute very, very moment and we are standing here, all together, on this pinnacle.

Now, into this mix, some of you have come as the grandest manifestation of who you are. You have come down to assist. You have come down to be the bad guy, you have come down to fulfill different roles for different reasons. The evolution of the soul is not just about your own growth, it is about you returning in your compassion and understanding, to assist those who are struggling in a particular life. You may not grow much in this particular incarnation, but you have come down to assist others, to bring information, to give them that "aha" moment. Sometimes it takes decades of beating on their door for them to be open to this information.

This hot season, we are going to use our brains to get knowledge, faith, and understanding. To get love. We are going to say, "How can I love more? How can I take the love I think in my brain and move it into my body so my heart is living in absolute joy?"

Think back to the moments in this life when you have experienced the greatest joy. That is just a tendril of mist of what it feels like to live in Heaven, in Valhalla, in Nirvana, and all those places. Understand that Heaven is not up here. It is right there in your consciousness when you close your eyes. Heaven is an awakening from this three-dimensional reality into the joy of your awakened consciousness.

Set compassion as your goal. The evolution of the ego is not accomplished by setting goals such as, "I'm going to love that hateful person until my ego doesn't want to wring his neck." That will not happen. Set compassion as your goal. Say, "What is their life like?" and in that understanding, using your brain, using your consciousness, you say, "Oh my goodness, look at how that poor person was raised. Look at how they lived."

Do not force it. Use your knowledge, use your love, use your compassion, as you think of it. One day you will say, "Bless that bad person because they have had a hard, a hard life which they are choosing." In that moment, your ego disappears and you are stepping into the godhood of who you are. Do not force it. Think of it as a slowly moving river that twists and turns.

To live in joy is to understand and see other human beings as their consciousness taking on the role they have designed for themselves in this life. You understand that role. Perhaps not in its entirety, but in the moment which impacts you. As you understand that, there is no impact from their negative energy.

This hot season, your goal is to increase your knowledge, your belief, your love. The goal is for you to embrace and understand. To begin to see the human race as each soul struggling to understand, within the confines of their life. You see each soul, and in that understanding, you have this burst of compassion, this burst of love, and you say, "Bless you." That blessing is as tangible as anything on this Earth.

Thank you, Susan, for bringing this information forward for all of us to consider.

What does a Channeler do?

Psychics and Channelers

Someone asked me about the difference between a Psychic and a Channeler.

Psychics and Channelers do the same kind of work, but have different audiences. Psychics generally work with individual clients. The clients ask questions, then the psychics bring the answers. Channelers are more likely to work with groups and bring through universal information. A client may ask a Psychic about whether or not to accept a particular job, but a group may ask a Channeler about the universal concepts of money, energy, and manifestation.

Psychics and Channelers all receive answers from non-physical entities. Psychics work on a personal level, while Channelers work on a universal level.

These days, I listen to quite a few Channelers. I record and transcribe the messages which come through. Last week, I was able to ask where our ideas come from, if there are guardians for our planet, and how our souls can continue to evolve after physical death. For me, these are fascinating topics. I hope you enjoy hearing about them.

If you have questions about universal concepts, e-mail them to me. If I don't already have the answer, I will ask a Channeler.

Entering The Fifth Dimension

Understanding the Fifth Dimension

I hear that we are in the midst of a great shift. We have moved from third dimensional energy, through fourth dimensional energy, into fifth dimensional energy. We are in a higher vibration. I don't feel any different, so I asked a few psychics about fifth dimensional energy.

I was told that some people can actually feel the energies changing. For others, it is more of a change in thought process, or an elevation of awareness through their heart. They are becoming more aware of the G-d within and the sanctity of all life (not just people, everything).

As people enter the fifth dimension, energy frequencies increase and thought processes automatically change. People begin to operate through their heart and through their Higher Self. Instead of being ego-based, they become soul-oriented. Instead of ego controlling their reflexes, a compassionate heart can guide their responses. The ego is about self-preservation, greed, lust, and power. As energies elevate, life will no longer be about power over others.

Suddenly I can see that this blog is about sharing information which helps people understand a soul-oriented way of looking at life.

According to the psychics, two major pivot points in this energy shift were the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and the December 21, 2012 date.

The August 1987 Harmonic Convergence was when humanity stepped out of third dimensional energy and entered fourth dimensional energy. In 25 years, humanity went through the complete fourth dimension and stepped into the early stages of the fifth dimension. This is astonishingly fast, as this kind of progress usually takes a million years.

The December 21, 2012 date was about re-opening the heart chakra. Many years ago, when humanity no longer wanted to feel pain, the heart chakra had been shut down. This chakra had allowed feminine energy to enter the body. The beam of energy which had previously come through the heart chakra was narrowed until it became just a silver thread. In 2012, the beam was re-opened, full breadth.

Now, masculine and feminine energy are balancing in the body. However, most people don't realize that the balance has shifted, and are still operating by reflex. This situation will evolve as people become accustomed to an influx of compassionate energy.

Now, instead of resolving issues through physical conflict, people are beginning to say, "Let's figure out a win/win solution." In the third dimension, conflicts were resolved through war. In the fifth dimension, there are better opportunities to envision non-violent solutions.

As humanity enters the fifth dimension, negativity is coming up to be purged. People are burning off old Karma because it won't be relevant in the fifth dimension. In some cases, they are on the receiving end of conflict because they are re-balancing what they have done to others in previous lifetimes. This is one reason why there is so much violence around the globe and in personal lives.

Some powerful people are trying to hold on to the old ways, but this set-up no longer works. This is the last grasp of the old ways. People living in the lower energies - people who believe that issues can only be resolved through violence and war - cannot survive in the higher energies and will have to move off of Earth, or be removed.

The psychics say that in the fifth dimension, people will be off of the Wheel of Incarnation, and will no longer need to reincarnate on Earth. However, if they so choose, they will be able to incarnate on other planets just to see the kinds of experiences those planets provide.

When fully in the fifth dimension, Karma will no longer be in effect. Things which were done while in the lower energies, will no longer affect people because their energy frequency will have been elevated. However, until then, Karma will be swift. Right now, any negativity a person creates is quickly returned to them.

The end goal of this energy shift is to bring a time of peace on Earth. This state can already be accessed through meditation. Fifth dimensional energy is what people tap into meditatively, as they feel physical tingling and non-physical tranquility and bliss.

I hope we can all live in peace and harmony in our own homes, then spread this tranquility to the rest of the world.

Let me know if you have anything to add to these basic ideas about the fifth dimension.
