When I began walking along my spiritual path, I just wanted answers. I wanted to understand why I felt, saw, heard, and knew things that seemed supernatural. I had always been curious about the paranormal, but never thought I would become a reader.
But as I began to explore, I wanted to test my abilities. As a former journalist, I am someone who always needs proof. Were my experiences real or was I just imagining things?
The development classes I attended at Inner Peace taught me to believe in myself, have confidence in myself, and learn how to become stronger so that information and messages came easier to me. Without gushing, I must say that those at Inner Peace have helped me become the psychic medium I am today.
The most significant lesson I learned was to step out of my comfort zone. When I began my “private practice” I wouldn’t do a same day reading = getting a call for an appointment for later that day. I was too scared, I felt I wouldn’t have enough time to relax, meditate, etc. A phrase that has stuck with me over the years is from Mr. Benjamin Franklin “Failing to prepare, is preparing to fail”. So if you called me on a Tuesday, I’d schedule you for Thursday, maybe even Friday.
I eventually got over that. What I realized was that if I could do a reading during development class at Inner Peace, I could do a reading in the same day.
Then in the summer of July 2016, I dared myself to do readings at an event at Inner Peace – which was a HUGE challenge. Not only was I doing a same day reading, I would be doing one right after another. And I would be doing readings outside of my private reading room.
As the doors opened and people began to walk in, I said to myself (and my spirit guides) “Here we go…” And I went. One reading after another, doing well, doing great, doing well, doing ok. That’s when I had to take a break to regroup and breathe; literally and spiritually. After a few minutes, I sat back down and did more readings. People were lining up, waiting for their turn to sit down with me. It was invigorating, exciting, humbling, and tiring. By the end of the day I was drained – with one more reading to do after the event back at my private room.
That day in July taught me so much about myself, people, and the spirit world. I learned that I am able to do readings whenever and wherever. The only thing that was holding me back was myself; not just for the past few years but for decades. And I refuse to go back.
And I hope others will learn the same about themselves: whether you are a client or an aspiring reader. It makes me happy when people make appointments with me because it shows that they are willing to take a step too. Just sitting down for a reading is a step towards learning more about the spirit world and about their connection to it. Seeing people in development classes, especially new faces, makes me happy too. It shows that people are open minded and curious.
Today, I am taking a look back at my progress, and in a few years I will take another look. And by then, I know I will be stronger and able to receive information and messages more clearly and accurately; an even better psychic medium. I am constantly taking more classes and workshops to become more knowledgeable about this field…not only for myself but for my clients.
There is so much to learn about being a psychic, a medium, or whatever ability you identify with. And naturally, we want to know everything now – but that’s not how it works. We receive the information we need at this point in time until we have are ready to learn more. The most important thing is to never stop learning – never stop evolving.
