Describe how you first found out about your psychic abilities.
Officially, in the real context of knowing I had abilities, well after I was about six or seven years old, I mean it was never put in those terms, the premise was there – I suppose, as it runs along the family tree, I mean we all knew about Grandma– right, I mean knowing the phone is going to ring, or someone is coming, and of course, Mom’s constant “special feelings” but it was not talked about in that sense, it was explained to me what this was a special thing, and why it all happens. and that it was not something to fear. But For me though, personally it started early on – I had stories, like movies which ran in my head, I enjoyed them, well sometimes, other times they scared me, when I spoke of these day dreams, the adults would engage with great sincerity, and as this was a known family trait, and they would ask very direct questions, always interested, and encouraging. When I was a bit older, the grown-ups used to ask silly questions, like what’s in the box –can you guess, or who do you think might stop by today, things of that nature, I suppose it was their way of testing, I honestly didn’t fully understand it, until I was about eight!

What have you done to develop your abilities?
I have been asked if I had formal training, the answer to that is – no, not really. Although as I got ready to start school, some time was spent, encouraging the general activity – guidance I guess you would call it, learning how to understand what the message was, in the things I was seeing. Interestingly, no one ever made a big deal about it, it was all sort of game we played, casually, it was just the way things were. Now, with the Arcana, or as you refer to it, the Tarot – well it seems like it was always around, we played games with the cards, guessing the meaning, creating stories to match the pictures – I suppose it was much like other kids with simple game cards like “Old Maid’, you know – put the suits together, get three of a kind – that sort of thing, but in time, when I was old enough to understand the significance, these were also explained, in their truer sense.
Describe your skills.
I am an Intuitive, or that’s how the text-book states it, I guess I am just a person of deeper feeling, it’s like being in a state of constant déjà vu, each person I meet, is like someone I have always known, their desires, and their sorrows, fill my mind, as if they were my own. What happens when I do a reading in most instances, is I simply – how would you say –change the channel, I choose to focus on those sub-level images in my mind’s eye – this thing is kind of like a window into a theater, where motions, and objects form like a reflection of events, and form a kind of story – the characters are often, seemingly familiar, and yet entirely unknown, well until fate arranges a meeting, then I just impose the person in front of me into the story image, some how it all rings true!
Can you communicate with spirits who have passed on?
I have also been asked if I channel, the answer to which is no, I don’t believe so – that is not one of my abilities, and to be honest, I’m not sure I would want such talents, it all seems kind of scary. I mean it must take a real special type of consciousness to deal with the constant emotional strain which must come by way of that activity, I have enough baggage dealing with the impressions received from the living, and that’s enough for one person – don’t you think!
Are you able to turn your psychic abilities ‘on’ or ‘off’ when you want to?
So someone asks, can you turn it on, and off – now that’s an interesting idea, “Turn it off”, but then, what if the switch broke, could I still turn-it back on? I have learned – over time to subdue it, put in the back of my mind, focus on the surface consciousness, but turn it off – No I can’t do that, and I don’t think I would want to – I’m content with just keep things the way they are.
What is life like living with these abilities?
What is life like having abilities, well generally interesting – there is seldom a dull moment! But on a serious note, there are a few issues, one is knowing when to offer the insights, and when to keep your advice to yourself, as often people you meet leave a very strong impression, but can be easily offended, it has to do with their sense of personal privacy – see no matter how much you think they need to know what you feel – you need to share, they may not appreciate the input! Secondly, dealing with people who really only want the answer that will make them feel good, not necessarily the one they need to hear, truth is an important element here, and things don’t always go as one thinks, or wishes they would. Are there benefit, I suppose, there are some side benefits … But don’t mention that to the casino guys…Promise!
Do you think anyone can develop psychic skills?
Can anyone be psychic, sure in a manner, I believe everyone has some level of ability, it is a natural element in the who we are aspect. I believe that we are all brought forth from a common ethereal plane, connected, and all knowing, but for most, this connectivity is repressed as we enter the physical plane, as we are simply overwhelmed by our basic senses –sight sound, taste, smell, and emotion.
For some there exists a sort of doorway, “here” – is on one side, everything else on the other, in some cases transition between these two arenas is easy, for others, more difficult. For instance, do you dream, then you already know how to transition between states, but practice is required, and learning to turn down your emotional self is an imperative!
What do you like best about working with PsychicNetworkers?
Ah the golden question, what do I like about working with the Network? Well for the record, it’s no secret that I’m fairly new to the group, having practiced privately for many years, and as such, haven’t got much to draw from. But, the process is comfortable, everyone at the Network seems friendly, and supportive, and I enjoy the diversity, it’s different with the network, you get calls from places you would otherwise never interact with, unlike the local store-front type practice where you work with a select client base, with the network you get many different people with many varying backgrounds. Working now with the Network, I work out of my house instead of a store front, so no travel – no overhead. I do the readings on the telephone, so I don’t have to worry about “keeping the house neat, and tidy”, like when you are engaged doing “face to face” readings, and I get to work the hours that suit my situation day-to-day. I guess that about sums it up!
Do you get readings for yourself?
Well I was taught that one never reads for their own insight. I take from a quote “One is never blinder then when one perceives their own image” – see it’s like you tend to put a singular spin on the given meanings, in other words – you see what you wish to see. Once again it’s because of that emotional element which tends to blur our perception. Do I get reading from others, sure from time to time, but I usually have a good idea of what’s what, and between you and me, I’m married, so if I need guidance, I just ask my wife! To the question of choosing a reader, I suggest you find someone, you feel comfortable with, simple visual instinct is a great start, if they strike you visually, they probably will do well, remember we all have some intuitive qualities, and natural attraction is generally our strongest ..trust your gut as they say. However, it is important to keep the relationship in the proper cont ext, friends are not good readers, they are invested emotionally, and like yourself, they may be prone to be skewed.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your abilities?
If I had anything I wished to share over all, I guess it would just be some observations, as it has been in my experience, via travels, and associations, that I have found, among the vast majority of people who do what I do – they are honest, caring, and sincere folk, and like myself, they didn’t start-out wanting to do this, it is something which you are called to do, and attempting to deny your destiny only leads to unhappiness, so we do what we must. To that I will add some simple wisdom, when you come seeking a reading, come open –honest, and without bias, because you know, that offering deceit only leads to deception, if you are not honest with yourself, and the reader, then what you get in return will be as twisted as your deception, and entirely of your own making,
Lastly, I guess some clarity, I believe that ultimately we are here to learn, to experience and to grow, each on our own journey to once again achieve harmony. Vary early on I was taught that we all retain within ourselves messages, those of a nature which can aid us on our life’s journey, and that this thing I do is simply peering through the veil, and finding those messages in other who seek their true harmony.
