My Story • The Journey of a Phone Psychic In Private Practice

I am sure from time to time, people wonder how I came to work as a professional psychic consultant. It certainly isn’t at the top of socially accepted professions in the the United States. 

For many people, those who offer alternative healing services such as Reiki, Acupuncture, Sound Healing, or Movement Therapy there is often a calling to the profession. Some have no choice at all and are born gifted with psychic ability or healing ability and must come to terms with that. 

There have always been seers and mediums, but more energy went into “debunking” than into research last century.  Now we live in the time of quantum physics where science is constantly proving the mystic true.                

In 1994, the “gift” I had managed to live with quietly since birth was becoming harder and harder to suppress. At age 36, I did not realize that I had begun “reading” in my daily life. At work, in social conversations, I was accidentally telling the future, or secrets I did not know were such.

I was just being in the moment, not self-editing, and life was flowing along. I had no intention to disturb or violate the privacy of anyone. I had no desire to frighten or upset, however people were becoming startled by my comments. These incidents were happening more and more often. 

At that time, the “seeing” that was returning was beyond my control.  I have been “seeing” all my life and became comfortable quietly knowing things I should not have known.  I had worked hard to join the mainstream and to keep my second sight out of sight! 

At that time I was concerned about my future and wanted to “see” the best way to manage these experiences. 

I consulted a professional Tarot reader, and some months later, I was fortunate to have another reading from a well respected and published psychic & Tarot Master who again validated that it was my time to step out of corporate culture and make the decision to use “seeing” to be of service to the public.  

I felt I had no choice but to make an agreement with the Cosmic to put my gift to use.  I apprenticed for one year under another well respected woman, a practicing psychic with an excellent reputation.  

I also worked that same year offering readings at psychic faires held by a local Spiritualist church. There I read as many people as possible in 10 minutes session for hours in a row. It was very good training.

For two years I spent time reading for anyone who sat at my table during the psychic fairs. I felt that if I was going to offer readings to the public then I needed the mastery to sit down at the table with any person at any time and provide honest, accurate answers to their questions - every time.  

To succeed I chose to continue to study Hermetics, in particular the Golden Dawn theories as well as teachings on Kabballah. It became clear that the origin of the meaning of cards was critical to success. My studies began in 1994 and continue to this day. 

I continued my study of the “Tree of Life” model of the Universe, Western astrology and even dared to read the Zohar to come to as fluid an understanding of not only the many meanings of each Tarot, but to be able to read cards as a landscape.

I learned to use Tarot a launch into the Akashic and to hear not only the voices of the spirits but to “see” each clients own nature and need in the  both my minds eye and in the Tarot, to be validated by the cards. 

I needed my energy body clear, my intent honed to a one pointedness of seeing, and I needed to be able to completely drop myself for every session.  I have been doing this for over 20 years now. 

In addition to all this training, I also needed to be able to accept being treated with contempt, ridicule, suspicion and all sorts of unkind reactions. Then - as now - seers are not easily accepted in my country, and certainly not in my town.

When I felt ready, I began to look for an office. Finding a studio space was quite difficult. When I opened my first Studio in 1996 the city had zoning rules that required anyone who opened a business offering psychic, clairvoyant, or mediumship services to buy an occupational license in the CCG2 zone. 

The CCG2 zone was where the topless bars and pornography shops were located. Marinas, parts stores, large warehouses, car lots and other businesses that are not at all attractive to people who seek a quite place for a private consultation were also CCG2. Most buildings for rent were 2000 square feet of warehouse & not at all appropriate.

I was very fortunate to find a small office in a strip mall.  I transformed that space into a  little shop. There was the “Reading Room” a “Waiting Room” that served as a store, drum circle space and Usui Reiki healing room. I enjoyed that very much. As the neighborhood changed new businesses moved in. I needed to move out. I closed that studio in 2002. 

I realized, thanks to loyal clients who moved away  but still wanted readings, that I could work by phone as effectively and as accurately as I had face to face. This was very validating for me. 

I was glad to see the success of phone readings as my own clients were satisfied with quality, connection and accuracy.  I began to offer psychic readings by phone in 2000. I built my first website - all five pages!  Today my site is much larger, I maintain several blogs, and am in the process of updating the design. 

For psychic phone readings, all we need to see the future is a meeting of the minds, a voice to voice connection enables us to open the doors to the Akashic and connect to all there is to see.  

When I first offered psychic phone readings there were one or two psychic hot line services. Keen was one of the first.  Today when I search the Internet for psychics who offer phone readings, the first three pages of most search engines are call centers results. 

On the one hand, I think the presence of so many hot line or call centers may be a reflection that our culture has an increased acceptance of the metaphysical. That is a very joyful thing!! A greater opening to the mystic is good for all. 

On the other hand, I do find it hard to believe that there has been such a dramatic increase in the number of gifted seers.  I hope this is true! I hope that more and more people are opening and connecting to cosmic consciousness through what ever sacred measure they choose to apply. 

In spite of all the struggles over the years, I am still happy to be working. I have been blessed with a new small office space in a lovely part of town! 

You can in come for a reading, shop at Midnight Sun, stroll through Five Points to have a coffee, tea, a meal at any one of the great restaurants in our little historic district 

I hope this blog helps you understand the “why” of my continuing. 

I did not then and do not now charge high fees. I have had clients tell me over the years that they have readings with “famous” psychics, or local readers who charge $350 and hour and up. They reported they did not get better service for the higher price. 

I believe anyone who needs to access the Akashic Record should be able to afford to do so. I have always kept my prices within reach of most. My thought then was that I did not need to charge more money, I just need enough clients to allow me to live a simple life. 

Did I mention that I was born “seeing”? Now that I am able to put that ability to use to benefit others, I am truly content. When younger, I wondered what my purpose was, never really realizing I was born to it.

I am available for phone readings Sunday through Friday. Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday I am available by phone appointment from 10:00 AM Eastern until 7:00 PM. Mondays and Thursday my hours are restricted as I work “live” in town those days. 

Walk-In Readings are available Monday and Thursday at 1055 Park StSeet, Jacksonville, Florida, 32204. in person sessions are available by appointment in Jacksonville, Florida.**

Peace to all who pass this page.
