|I have two main areas of training and
interest: psychic and literary. I always thought I'd earn
my living via the literary and only discussed psychic issues with others
in the field. My intuitive talents were never anything I thought
should be flaunted, and did enormously contribute to my writing, though it
certainly didn't make me your standard writer, should such a thing exist.
I've trained with both master psychics and studied with the Association
For Research And Enlightenment and an institute called Clear Sight.
Currently I am one of the Edgar Cayce Foundation's hand-picked psychics
who was chosen from a world-wide competition.
I have a Master's Degree in Writing and a Bachelor's Degree (cum laude) in
English/Creative Writing. While completing my Master's degree
I suffered an injury to both wrists, which further strengthened my
journey inward and my interest in all forms of healing. Being a
Capricorn, I am and was particularly interested in finding out what
actually works for people. Certainly the first cynical guinea pig in
any search or experimentation has been me.
Throughout my life I've been compared to the canary they send into
the mines to see if it's safe for the miners. If the canary can
live, then so can the miners. Having dealt with that much
sensitivity in my life, I've had to learn a great deal about myself and
about others in order to feel well and safe and to have some sense of my
place in the world.
One thing I learned through the ordeal with my wrists was to surrender on
an even deeper level and seek help from a higher power. This was not
new to me but it was very easy at that point to simply ask God (or you
could call it the Universe) to use me. In this instance, it
seemed that doors were opening for me to work as a psychic and contribute
to others through my intuitive gifts.
People ask me when I first learned I was "psychic." When
did you first learn you weren't, would be the question I would ask.
In fact, I always saw intuition as my strongest mode of functioning, but
didn't know until I was part of a paranormal study where I was told that
Edgar Cayce (the most documented psychic in history) said that the
intuitive was the psychic and was especially valuable because it provided
guidance and direction.
That study was called "Battered Boundaries" and I was to be
studied. Instead it turned out that I was doing readings on the
person who was first chosen to study me. People chosen for Battered
Boundaries were those considered to be highly sensitive to information
they'd have no normal access to. The question of the study was
I'm not sure that we ever really found out why but I believe everyone in
the study went on to either do volunteer psychic work (such as on the
project locating lost children) or work professionally as a psychic, or
