1. Your previous book was The Awakened Aura, and your
new book is The Awakened Psychic
To what does "Awakened" refer in the titles? Are they companion books?
Yes, they are companion books that build on
to each other. Part of the connection to intuitive/psychic abilities is
the ability to see, sense, or feel auras. The Awakened Aura
provides a great starting point to understanding the energy field that
surrounds every living being, and The Awakened Psychic
explores how we can use this energy field to expand our intuitive
abilities on a greater level. My next book coming out with Llewellyn
(in 2017) will be the third in this series, and will be called The Awakened Dreamer.
The word "awakened" describes the sudden
shift from one form of consciousness or understanding into a greater
awareness. Typically when we make this shift, we expand into a greater
sense of purpose and action. I wanted to explain in these books how
each person has the power to tap into their super-conscious, what I
describe as the higher self. We don't have to rely on another person to
tell us what being psychic is like; we can tap into our own intuitive
gifts, which I believe every person has at some level.
My job as "Your Travel Guide to the Other
Side" is to show each person how to awaken the intuitive abilities that
they have lying dormant within. Once they awaken their inner psychic, I
show them how they can harness these abilities and use them in
practical ways in their careers, their relationships, and their
personal spiritual journey.
2. Your previous books
have spanned many topics, from auras to ghost hunting. What has your
journey been like?
I came back into this lifetime
remembering my past lives very vividly. In my childhood, since I can
remember, I've seen auras, had prophetic dreams, and could communicate
with ghosts and spirits. At the age of twelve I asked my parents if I
could formally study tarot and astrology, which they allowed me to do.
I continued my studies to explore the various forms of religion,
philosophy, and spirituality, and in my twenties I experienced an
awakening of my own, where I remembered who I was and why I was here
again in this lifetime. After this experience, I began to teach and
write and share, first creating a school in my local area and later
expanding it to traveling around the US to teach at wonderful centers
like the Omega Institute, Edgar Cayce's ARE, LilyDale Assembly, the
Learning Annex, and many others. I continue to evolve how I teach,
moving with the times, as I now teach webinars online, reaching
students around the world with my Academy of Mystical Arts and
Spiritual Sciences. While the format in which I teach continues to
change, the material, which I describe as wisdom teachings, is
timeless. It was taught in ancient schools in Egypt, Greece, and other
wonderful cultures over the years.
My journey in this lifetime, like that of
everyone else, has been filled with great joys and tremendous sorrows.
I do my best to learn and grow from each of these experiences as part
of my spiritual practice, which I feel has made me a better teacher and
guide. I have loved and lost and while I am able to connect with loved
ones on the other side, it is bittersweet. I am fortunate that I am
able to connect and communicate with loved ones on the other side,
while also suffering from the pain and loss of not being able to
experience life with them here on the earth plane. Being psychic and an
empath, I am able to experience other people's emotions at a deep and
profound level, which has opened me to a tremendous love and respect
for all of humanity. At the same time, I hurt when others are in pain
and I hurt as the world suffers as well. I wouldn't trade my abilities
for anything—they are a tremendous blessing and have taught me so much
on my journey—but at times, they can also be challenging to bear. Isn't
that true about most things in life, really?

skills so important?
