I’ve seen spirits for as long as I can remember, and I could hear people’s thoughts, especially if they were very emotional. When major life events were about to occur, I usually knew at least a couple of days in advance.
I was in my early teens when I first realized I was "psychic.” I’m a third generation psychic, but it wasn't a word that was ever used in my house when I was a child. It was just something you saw, and you did, but we never really spoke about it.
“Yes, of course I can see and talk to great grandma who passed 20 years ago!”
“Don’t you hate it when people think so loud?? They really should build better mental walls.”
These phrases were all so normal in my house.
I remember the first time someone asked me if I was psychic. I insisted that of course I wasn't. All I knew about psychics was that they looked into crystal balls, wore a lot of jewelry and big flowing skirts—that definitely wasn't me.
But as time passed, I began to realize that being psychic wasn’t about what you wore. It was about knowing what people were thinking, seeing people who had passed over, and having spirit guides that gave me information. That’s psychic.
Up until I was 14, I never really had any formal training. None of the other people in my family did either. They would talk about mental walls, and use a lot of imagery to describe things that I experienced. I am so thankful for that, but I am a very practical person (I love science and things that can be defined) so I turned to the direction of some friends and guides.
I read every book I could on enhancing psychic abilities, paranormal phenomena, and out of body experiences. Before that, I could block the extra “noise” but I couldn’t pick out detailed information or communicate with specific people who had passed. It was more about whoever showed up and was loud enough to get my attention!
Over the next few years, I was able to refine my gift and make it into a usable tool that could help both myself and others. Today, I am so grateful that I have the knowledge and ability that I do. I love being able to help others find peace, comfort and answers for the challenges that face them.
