It Wasn’t Easy Being a Super-Psychic Kid
When I was a kid, I knew the phone was gonna ring before it did, and who was on the other line. My parents thought this was fun, and we played with my extra-sensory perception. We read books on crop circles, the pyramids, and stonehenge, which so clearly could not have built by man.
As I grew up, having these gifts wasn’t socially acceptable, so I shut them down. I became a bookworm and didn’t have friends.
As a Young Adult, I Started Recognizing My Gifts
In my 20s, they gradually started to wake up again. I would enter football pools and win 60-70% of the time. I would walk into restaurants and think “no way we’re eating here!” when I felt the negative energy in the kitchen. But I still didn’t understand that my abilities were unique. I’d think “Oh, everybody knows these sorts of things…”
My gifts fully awakened in my early 30s when I went back to get a finance degree at a Jesuit college. I had to take theology, but luckily I could choose non-traditional courses like Transformations of Myth Through Time with Joseph Campbell and the Theology of Women.
One day, in Theology of Women, our teacher created a labyrinth of masking tape on the floor and instructed – “You’re going to walk through this labyrinth, let go of something, find a little gift in the middle, and walk back out again.” I put one foot into the labyrinth and I was transported to another place. I was so happy, it was amazing! I was dancing, then in the first turn things got dark and dreary and I started to cry. Then it was wild and totally trippy until I got to the center. Then I walked out of the labyrinth calm and peaceful, like a nun, having had this experience that was not explainable. This is the moment I stepped back onto my spiritual path, and my whole life changed.
These Gifts Changed My Life In Miraculous Ways
I started to know more about who I was and what I wanted instead of doing things for everybody else. From the fog I was in, I became more aware and less co-dependent.
At the time I was very sick with bad digestive problems. After 10 years of pain and struggling, going to doctors, taking tests, and taking drugs, I realized I didn’t want to do it that way anymore. I turned to alternative medicine, and this led me to my intuitive practice.
My first clairvoyant meditation class in 1994 was life-changing for me. Doing rose readings and learning grounding and presence practices calmed me down. As I did more and more work, my tools got clearer and I got calmer, more centered, and less fearful. Twenty-plus years later, my calm and centered presence is what my clients feel the most.
I Began Deeply Exploring My Passion
For the next 15 years, I absorbed everything I could in this psychic realm – wicca magic, hands-off philippine psychic surgery, working with ascended masters, self-healing, multi-dimensional travel, past-life readings, and ultimately a teacher’s program so I could teach these tools.
Recently I’ve been teaching in-person and online classes about developing your intuitive gifts, as well as and offering 1:1 clairvoyant readings. I love that I’ve developed this gift, and that in using this gift I help bring clarity to people’s lives.
I also have a corporate job, and what I love is that in contrast to my previous 20-year corporate career, I don’t feel limited by that job. It gives me freedom and resources.
I See the Possibility of Everyone Having Access to Their Gifts
In the end, my most meaningful accomplishment is being a mother to a 22-year-old who knows it’s okay to be fully yourself. My child came into the world with so much wisdom, and I was there to make sure that nobody tried to close those gifts down.
I see that everyone has the ability to be connected to their own spark of wisdom, their gifts, and their power.
