The Role of Psychic Abilities & Intuition in a Person’s Life
Speaking from 5-7:30 p.m.
My mom had this uncanny ability to know what was going on with us four kids. She
always said (as well as my dad and her friends) that the information came from her
I was 7 years old when she began teaching me about my intuition. She would point
to my stomach and tell me that the answers were in there.
In the beginning, it was kind of hit or miss. Sometimes I got a gut feeling that
turned out to be accurate and other times it was my emotions. Living by intuition
was a two-step process for me. First I needed to learn the difference between intuition
and my emotions. Secondly, I had to learn to trust what it was saying. Neither came
easy to me, but I can honestly say, it’s been the most valuable gift my mom ever
When I was 17 years old, I began taking psychic development classes. Over time
I developed the gifts of psychic hearing, seeing, sensing and smelling. It was with
the help of my intuition that I knew when I was on the right track in my psychic
In the first half an hour of my presentation at the Psychic Symposium, I will
teach you how to recognize your own psychic abilities and how to recognize the still
small voice within (intuition). Then I’m going to do a guided meditation while channeling
healing energy to the audience, followed by readings to as many people as time allows.
We all have intuition and we all have psychic abilities. They are amazing spiritual
tools to help us get through each day.

Speaking from 2-4 p.m.
Just a few days ago I watched an Oprah show featuring the psychics John Edwards and
Allison DuBois. I smiled as I realized how "mainstream" my life and my
experiences have become. Intuition, and even mediumship, has become an accepted,
if not quite fully embraced, part of the U.S. culture.
Until recently, however, intuitive ability was ignored, discounted, trivialized
or, in some cases, criminalized. When I came out of the psychic closet 20 some years
ago, I was afraid that my being a psychic would change how people perceived me. I
was, after all, an attorney, a wife and an accepted member of the community.
Well, it certainly did change my life. I am reminded of some lyrics of a song from
the musical "Wicked." The words are: "Who can say if I’ve been changed
for the better? But, because I knew you, I’ve been changed for good."
And that, for me, is how being a psychic and a medium has affected me. I have
been changed for good (and I happen to believe for the better, as well).
Everyone is born with intuitive ability. As our society becomes more and more technologically
complex, we also are becoming more and more intuitively gifted. It is now the time
for all of us to claim our intuitive birthright.
Intuitive ability is very much like musical ability – everybody has some musical
ability, but very few people can sit down and play the piano without training. Music
occurs naturally in the world, but it is not a thing we can touch or feel. We create
music when we believe in it, trust our abilities and are taught the rules. Similarly,
everyone has the ability to be intuitive, but very few of us are natural-born psychics.
As with musical ability, the key to training our intuition is to believe in it, discover
what we are good at, learn the rules, and then practice, practice, practice.
My prediction for the world and all of us in it is this: psychic readers will
some day be as antiquated as buggy whip makers. As our society embraces the reality
of intuition as a natural, human ability, we will all do our own readings for ourselves.
And those of us who have a little head start will act as the teachers and trainers
our world needs to bring this ability to everyone.

Someone to Watch over You
Speaking from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You have a constant companion, and its only job is to protect and care for you. Your
intuition, that consistent source of whispers from your soul, is always on the job.
All you need to do is listen and act. Sometimes, your intuition will even save your
It was 1980 when I learned this firsthand.
I was riding home from the park near my house in Green Bay, Wisc., one fine summer
evening. My bike and I were operating as one – a finely-tuned machine of 11-year-old
muscles and Schwinn steel. We were going so fast! We were free and flying! The wind
whipped my face and the howl of speed echoed in my ears.
We were going to have to swing wide on that last corner in front of my house in
order to bleed off some momentum. "No problem," I thought. "We’ll
make it." Nonetheless, a little tremor of uncertainty rippled through me.
"Slow down," an inner voice whispered. Instinctively, I tapped the brakes,
just a little.
When I saw the car speed into the intersection, directly in my path, my cocky
invincibility instantly gave way to panic. I fell to the right to avoid getting hit.
My leg got tangled up in the frame of the bike. I skidded to a stop, akimbo and face-down,
beside the car’s left front quarter panel.
Let me tell you: grinding across 10 yards of pavement on your knee, while terrifying
and painful, is a lot better than getting crushed by a car. If my constant companion
hadn’t whispered, and if I hadn’t acted, I might not be writing these words today.
I was able to hobble home that evening, thanks to intuition.
The word "intuition" comes from the word "tuition," which
didn’t always mean a high university bill. Back in the 15th century, "tuition"
was defined as "protection, care, or custody." That’s a fitting description.
Intuition is an inner well of knowledge and wisdom that’s charged with our loving
protection and care. We all have it, and we can all use it to enrich our lives.
There is no requirement for intuition to work for you. Its whispers are heard by
the rich and the poor, the young and the old, the healthy and the feeble. The only
thing you need to do to hear intuition whispering to you (and it is whispering to
Listen. Then act.
Now go create the life of your dreams, knowing that your constant companion, your
intuition, walks dutifully by your side.
