RADIO PODCAST INTERVIEWS
I’ve Lived a Dual Life
I’ve lived a dual life working in the corporate world as well as quietly doing readings in the evenings and on weekends. In those days, it wasn’t smart to let the corporate honchos know one was seriously into psychic things.
In 2001, I took a leap of faith and launched Imagine Spirit on the Internet. I advertised in-person classes and seminars having awesome turn-outs. In addition, I started holding classes by phone. I don’t know how I did it, but I squeezed in time to obtain my Ph.D. in Parapsychology & Paranormal Sciences).
I’ve had incredible psychic experiences my entire life. Perhaps you can relate.
When Paranormal Events Started Happening
Supernatural experiences started happening around the age of 17. I began noticing spirits in vague forms at various times and places. In fact, I never knew when I’d see a spirit or what kind of paranormal event would occur next.
I’ll never forget the time while taking a much-needed nap, I left my body and floated to the ceiling. I looked down and incredibly, saw myself asleep on the bed.
What’s more, a loud buzzing sound like millions of swarming bees preceded the event. Although I’d read about similar phenomena, this particular incident left me more than a little unnerved. Interestingly, spontaneously leaving my body didn’t happen again for many years.
Soon, I Experienced Precognitive Dreams
To add to this, I was having vivid dreams of events before they happened. Usually, these dreams were of very mundane activities. Yet, I never mentioned these otherworldly experiences to anyone for fear of ridicule or being shunned. I just took them in stride.
Exploring the World of Psychic Phenomena
You’d think that all this would prevent me from exploring the realm of the paranormal and spirits. Surprisingly, the opposite happened. During my early teen years, I hungrily devoured everything I could on the subject of psychic phenomena and more specifically, ghosts.
I read books by renown paranormal investigators. Hans Holzer, Harry Price, and Nandor Fodor were among the primary authors that I read. I also read about Edgar Cayce, in his first biography, “There Is a River.” Excited by it all, I soon became aware of what Mediumship was and famous mediums of the time such as Eileen Garrett, Sybil Leek, and Arthur Ford. To add to this, I read as much as I could about psychics such as Jean Dixon and channel, Ruth Montgomery.
All the was fascinating stuff, but never once did I seriously consider these subjects were to be a direction I would move in later in life. In fact, interest in the paranormal was the very beginning of my life-long spiritual exploration. And, it’s what ultimately led me to becoming a professional Psychic, Medium, and Spiritual Teacher. The thing was, I never intended to seriously go in this direction in the first place.
All Things Paranormal Were Put Away to Live a “Normal” Life
In my young adult life, interest in the paranormal took a back seat. I attended college. I also married and had two beautiful children. Yet, occasionally seeing ghosts and having precognitive dreams still plagued me. However, I did my best to keep these events under wraps from everyone!
Was Moving to Arizona Fate?
By 1981, I’d moved to Scottsdale, Arizona. Being curious after picking up a flyer, I decided to attend my first psychic fair in Sedona. As fate would have it, there I met my future mentor, Dr. Alice Bowers. Alice gave me my first ever psychic reading. In fact, she was the only person I felt drawn to in a vast hall packed full of psychic readers.
Driving home, I was so impressed with this woman, that I decided to see her again. As it turned out, I saw her several times. She became an integral part of my life for the next two years.
Alice Proved to Be the Real Deal
I’m no pushover, and to me, Alice was the real deal. Truth be told, I was fascinated by what she did. Not only did I get psychic readings, but I also had several Mediumship sessions.
In more than one session, relatives and spirit guides were present. Details about my grandparents relayed to me were spot-on. There’s no way Alice could have acquired previous knowledge about these personal specifics.
She Told Me that I Was a Medium Too!
During one visit, Alice surprised me by declaring that I was a Medium too. Without a doubt, I was astounded. Part of me was thrilled to hear this declaration and part of me dismissed the idea. I’d never entertained the thought of becoming a Medium. Frankly, I was more interested in learning Tarot and doing psychic readings.
Soon after, I made the momentous decision to start psychic training with Alice. The downside was that she lived a good hour away by car. However, learning was so important to me that I hardly missed the weekly class in two years.
While with Alice, I explored my Mediumship potential. My real focus was on doing psychic readings, but Mediumship training was a mandatory part of the two-year program to become certified.
