First, thank you for taking the time to sit with me and answer a few questions. I appreciate your time.
I am honored to give you my time and am always open to sharing my heart. Thank you for the opportunity. Love and light and gratitude I send to you.
Let’s start from the beginning. When did you first learn about the psychic world?
I have always been aware of the ‘Psychic’ or ‘Spiritual’ world. There’s never been a time when I couldn’t acutely tune in to the ‘other’ realm of the ‘Spiritual’ world. I was born into a traditional Baptist background, and faith played a huge part in developing my psychic gifts. At four, I had a profound spiritual awakening resulting from authentic communication with the entity and introduction of Jesus Christ.
Shortly afterward, I began to comprehend that I could actually see and hear the spirits of deceased people. I was also ‘filled with the spirit a few days later.’ Filled with the Spirit is a religious term for ‘speaking in tongues.’ Glossolalia, some call it. I suddenly could pray and sing in other languages. Then, I could interpret what I heard and write songs from that knowledge. The Baptist faith typically discredits this gift of Glossolalia, so naturally, my mother was quite astonished.
I am sure she must have thought me ‘mad’ for years. The Psychic things that occurred around me all the time made me different. Noises that go bump in the night seemed to intensify when I was present. Many of our relatives considered our house haunted because these loud noises happened so often. Looking back, I suppose it was simply the ‘good spirits’ communing and preparing me.
While in college, I fell in love with actress Shirley MacLaine while studying theatre and journalism. I began to read her books, and I had a few epiphanies. Her open spirit and teaching transformed my Baptist upbringing into a springboard for a lifetime of personal searching and spiritual growth. She planted seeds within my soul, and her writing became a light unto my path. It eventually pushed me out of my traditional comfort zones and ‘out on my limb.’
How long have you been giving Psychic advice professionally?
Directly, I have been giving professional psychic guidance for over 25 years. However, my first undeniable experience with my gift transpired over 25 years ago. For several years, I traveled with a professional entertainer as a backup singer and tour manager. I held a newborn baby during one of our visits to Texas to see her family in between shows.
While holding him, I suddenly knew he was going to die. I told my friend and prayed for God to spare his life on the bus. Upon arriving at our next destination, we learned that the child had passed due to an undetectable heart condition. This news shook us to the core. I was so upset that God did not spare the child.
I couldn’t understand why he told me this was about to happen if he didn’t intend to save the child. Now I know it was God’s way of getting me to understand that I am an authentic seer. I finally reconciled that we sometimes know things for no apparent reason. This is when we must fully realize that we are not in control.
What made you decide to give readings professionally?
In California, my spiritual teacher threw a deck of oracle cards on a table and told me to ‘read’ for a girl who had shown up on her doorstep for a reading. My spiritual teacher Nancy was a veteran reader. I had commissioned her to perform spiritual work to help me reach the next level of spiritual enlightenment. I was absolutely scared and mortified!
However, the fear of God combined with the ‘wrath’ of Nancy that always lived beneath the surface of ‘Nancy, the Psychic,’ was far more frightening than my potential failure. I began the reading simply because I didn’t know what else to do. The spirit of the girl’s deceased grandfather came through immediately, giving me his name and occupation.
This particular girl had no closure with her grandfather’s death because she had not been present when he died. He delivered many comforting messages that brought instant healing to her. She began to weep, and I saw the healing flow through her. All the years I had spent trying to learn the Bible, the virtue of Christ, holiness, and the ‘secret’ of healing with traditional faith suddenly dimmed to the miracle I now witnessed.
I was bowled over and had no clue what to do or say next.
It was surreal, and I knew then that the Universe had thrown my career path a curveball. I knew that I would never be the same on any level. The Universe has a way of proving itself to you. It will prod, push, and spew hot coals if necessary, but it will give you the message you’re supposed to have. I realized that even with all my gifts of music and writing, my intuitive abilities were the greatest catalyst to actually help change people’s lives and promote overall evolution within the Universe.
Connecting the human family and its overall evolution is the most important thing. I finally came face-to-face with my greatest fear. Reading was the best, most beautiful approach to being an authentic healer and comforter. That day, I knew that ministry would never be traditional for me, and I didn’t want it any other way.
Why did you choose to partner with Psychic Source to give readings?
I researched their professional standards regarding client integrity and found that they are unmatched in the industry. Initially, their excellent reviews and the reputation they’ve upheld for more than 20 years drew me in. I decided to partner with them because they give leeway to the diversity of psychic gifts. They don’t interfere with one’s ability to ‘read’ naturally and organically.
There also appeared to be an openness and readiness to facilitate professional growth from within the company’s resources. They also allowed us to maintain as much individual freedom as we needed to work as professional readers and healers. I loved their professionalism and the sense of family and team effort they put into everything. Psychic Source has many of the top psychics globally, and I was honored that they chose me to be one of them.
Many believe that Psychics derive their gifts from the devil or dark spirits. Do you struggle with this as an Ordained Minister? If so, how did you deal with it?
Now that is a loaded question, and this may take a while, so bear with me. Yes, I have actually been ordained in the United Christian Church for closer to 20 years. I became a devoted lover and student of the Bible early in life. My mother taught me to read the Bible before I entered first grade.
I originally planned a career in television evangelism and attended two very prestigious Bible colleges. It is a blessing to have studied the Bible under the direction of some of the most advanced and inspired Bible scholars of our time. However, it became clear that my unwillingness to ‘accept’ everything they told me as if it was the absolute ‘truth’ would make me a spiritual ‘black sheep’ in certain Christian circles.
The circles rejecting my more modern approach to ‘judge not’ were the ones I needed to propel my ministry forward. Because of this, I suffered from being an outcast. After years of trying to shut up and ‘fit’ in, finally, I had no choice but to face the fact that I would never be accepted, nor would any of my gifts.
I prayed, cried, cursed, and blamed God and everyone else. Finally, like a light bulb, I gained the ‘grace’ to accept myself just as I was. Before, people made me feel as though my gifts of prophecy or music were obsolete in the Christian world. Amidst this, I let go of any hope of ever using my gifts to serve God and help others, or so I thought.
I made a cross-country trip that changed my life and the course of my destiny.
I took a journey with a party of two, me and my dog Frank Sinatra, a blue-eyed Wolf-Great Dane hybrid. Well, a party of two and a few dozen unseen entities. During my travels, I discovered that I was a natural-born psychic. I used my intuition, oracle cards, pendulum, prayer, and meditation to determine which restaurant to approach each day to sing for tips.
I would use that evening’s tips to get to the next town. All the money I had was what I earned singing each day. I completed my journey at the end of 3 months and four days. I thought all along that my prolific gift of songwriting and entertaining had successfully scooted me across the country. Long story short, I traded my guitar for tarot cards and my songs for predictions. My book ‘Song Peddlar’ about the entire journey, is almost complete.
I realized something life-changing as I pushed through this passage’s grueling path. The spirits they had taught me to believe were evil were actually guiding me. Without them, I wouldn’t have survived. I grew up in an open family where we could talk about anything, and that taught me early on that God could choose what he would use to connect with each of us.
I concluded that the entities and gifts used to honor our spirits and God could not possibly be ‘dark’ or ‘evil.’ I had wrestled and prayed for many years about it all. Then on this path toward the unknown, I discovered I had held the breath of truth I had been searching for in church and Christianity my whole life right in the corridors of my own humanly beating heart.
The path itself was made clear to me.
I began to see through the illusion of believing that psychic gifts were of the ‘devil.’ I found constant comfort from all my spirit guides, the Angels, Michael, and Gabriel, to mention a few. The teachers that appeared out of ‘nowhere’ became too obvious to ignore. At the end of my cross-country trek and the end of the day, I received a solid and deep knowing that something was very Holy about ‘peeking’ through the veil.
Still, I had to convince myself that it could be genuine. I researched the Bible and exhausted all my arguments. One day I arrived at the shuttering testimony of Jesus himself as perhaps the greatest ‘seer ‘of all time. As I read the passages of Jesus and the woman at the well, the story of Jesus telling the disciples where to go to find the colt, I knew it was true.
I would be able to do the same things he had done. Maybe even some that he hadn’t had time to embark upon. The New Testament lists and names the gifts of the spirit, and yes, they were the spiritual gifts spoken of by the Apostle Paul. I realized that there were levels of enlightenment and that Christianity and many other world religions are the basis for which most spirituality often takes its roots and begins to grow within the human heart.
I found peace in knowing that my gifts which served my brothers and sisters, were God’s hand. They were his voice to the hurting hearts, the misguided or lost souls. I felt honored, convinced, and grateful that God’s wisdom had given the foundation of Christianity to teach the depth of God’s secret wisdom.
What obstacles did you overcome when you discovered you were psychic?
I guess the greatest obstacle was a lifetime of religious teaching that I would somehow ‘blaspheme’ the Holy Spirit by communing with familiar spirits. There was a spiritual passage I had to get through. On two different occasions, I had to hit ‘rock’ bottom to fully hear the voices trying so hard to give me heavenly messages.
I gave away or lost many possessions at three different times in my life. I suffered violent persecution from various religious leaders whom I loved and admired. Times were challenging and humiliating for me while living in California when I had a two-year stint of living in my car, so I could afford to pay a spiritual teacher. There were times when I actually questioned my sanity.
Still, with my faith in God and connection with the Holy Spirit and Christ, the Angels, teachers, and guides, I fought through it and concluded that I simply had to move forward at all costs, literally and figuratively. I worked at the Santa Monica Pier for several years, giving $5.00 readings and working full-time to pay my teacher. While living in my car, I had to shower in the backyard of my friend’s home with a water hose.
Then finally, the greatest test was finding a home for my dog Frank Sinatra to move forward on the journey. With a broken heart, years of struggle, trial, and a lot of error behind me, I can candidly say my greatest obstacle was my disbelief. Well, happily, the Universe has made a believer out of me.
How does your family feel about what you do?
I am fortunate to have the Ultimate open-minded family. Remarkably I was reared in the heart of what some may consider ‘backwoods Appalachia’ where one might simply assume upon first glance prejudice might abound. On the contrary, my parents have always had deep faith in me to make the best decisions for my life, and they’ve always taken comfort from knowing that I have a deep spiritual life that always gets me through anything. As devout Christians, they’re profoundly proud of my gift and constantly tell people I’m a ‘famous psychic.’
They gave me ‘roots and wings.’ They are exceptional people who fully embrace the ability of God to use anyone or anything he creates for his good. My dad readily tells everyone that I’m following in Jesus’ footsteps, and he considers me more a preacher than a prophet, and that is okay with me. Although I must admit, I love being a ‘seer.’ My mother proclaims I am a perfect angel, using my gifts to heal the world. Even my most skeptical kith and kin proclaim in my favor that if God can use ‘Balaam’s Jackass, ‘donkey,’ he can use anything. They, my family, are my greatest cheerleaders.
Everyone in my family has always treated me like royalty, regardless of my career choice or personal matters. I have a great family, and did I mention; my great-grandmother was a Native American Medicine Woman, so this ‘psychic phenomenon is not ‘news’ to them. Since most of them are Baptist, they would readily accept me as a ‘psychic’ than a preacher; preachers are reserved by ‘God’ and tradition for those of male determination. LOL.
What gifts do you possess, and how do you use them to help your clients?
I have all the traditional psychic gifts, such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, and pre and post-cognition. Precognition allows me to predict future events, and I use post-cognition in mediumship or connecting with the deceased. I’m a medical intuitive, and I can perform energy work for healing, including Native American Energy Work, Reiki, Angel Therapy, and sealing, balancing, and aligning the Chakra.
I also have a method of healing that I developed for clients called Dimensional Vibration Healing, which is prayer and meditation infused with the direct energy of The Holy Spirit to heal the chakra system and many common everyday illnesses. I also use meditation, visualizations, and past life regressions to heal emotional imbalances and teach people to manifest their dreams. I’m a life coach and Christian spiritual counselor, and I utilize Prayer as the basis for all the above gifts.
What is the most extraordinary reading you have done?
Oh my goodness, that’s not for me to say. I believe all readings are extraordinary, and I think it’s okay to say that because they have very little to do with me personally. I mean, I am simply a willing vessel to something much larger. Every reading is like the first; they are all as unique and lovely as the soul seeking the reading. I love connecting as a medium and as a seer equally.
However, I delight when departed loved ones show up, giving closure to grieving family members. Maybe that is partly due to the magic of the first reading I performed where the young woman’s grandfather came through; I don’t know. I would have to say that every reading I give that astounds an individual and causes them to grow or become more enlightened to the truth of God in some fashion, facilitating spiritual growth and perhaps reconnecting them with their own faith is possibly the most valuable reading I give.
Honestly, I can’t say which the best or most extraordinary is; asking that would be equivalent to asking a mother to choose her favorite child. Every time the Angels, God, the ‘Good Spirits’ Ascended Masters, Teachers, and departed loved ones see fit to enter our space, it is always extraordinary. I am amazed every time I get names, dates, and places during readings.
I’ve learned not to judge them because I never want to insult the spirits, and I realize they have precisely the perfect information for each person seeking them. Ironically, the readings I feel to be weak or not as dramatic seem to be the most revered by the client. I pray I never give my most extraordinary reading, and I would never want to take the ‘gift’ for granted.
What is your ultimate goal in this life?
Wow, that is a huge question. I must break the answer into categories because I have many goals and dreams; I can’t limit myself to only one. There is so much to achieve and relatively little time to accomplish it all. Ideally and Spiritually, I hope to continue to polish my spiritual gifts and hone my skills and techniques to the highest level attainable for myself and my soul’s evolution in this lifetime. With that evolution, I would like to awaken my spirit fully, becoming a living picture and witness to a place of the ultimate highest good for all humanity.
I dream of continuing my work as a seer, medium, healer, author, musician, singer-songwriter, spiritual teacher, and Christian minister until I am too old to even think about not doing any of it anymore. In other words, NO RETIREMENT PLAN! Professionally, I would like to write at least 50 books on spirituality. As soon as ‘I complete Song Peddlar,’ my next book will be on ‘twin flame love and the different paths toward manifesting that love, tentatively titled ‘Threading Twin Strands.’
I would also like to facilitate programs that would teach young people the power of meditation, prayer, and manifestation and have those tools taught, accepted, and reintroduced into public and private education, alongside reading, writing, and arithmetic fundamentals. I hope to become a leader striving toward bridging the gap between secular and sacred, God, The Goddess, Buddha, Mohammad, and countless other spiritual entities, facilitating an inner connectedness between all God’s children.
And perhaps throw in world peace as an additive.
Dreamer, that is me, and I believe the future does belong to those who dare to dream. I want to help educate people about the alternatives of holistic and spiritual paths for true, authentic healing for major and minor illnesses. And I would like to use DMV to cure souls suffering from mental illnesses.
Publicly, I dream of utilizing television and radio platforms to do mass readings similar to John Edward and; ‘Long Island Medium’ Theresa Caputo, although I prefer to work in a ‘theatre-style setting. And the title of the record will be ‘Appalachian Seer. Ultimately, my biggest goal is to strive for excellence in everything I do spiritually, professionally, and publicly.
Above all, I pray to love each soul I encounter every day and somehow awaken the ‘light’ within them. To follow paths of the purest highest love for all, at all cost. In doing so, I hope to honor God with all the blessings and gifts he has entrusted me with. My motto is ‘Live to laugh, laugh to heal, and pray to grow … Evolve!‘
I love it! Thank you so much for your time Rheda!
My pleasure Angela!
