What you can do to get the BEST Reading!

Two common questions among new clients at the time of booking are: "Is there anything I should do to prepare for my reading?" and "What should I expect from the reading?"

What you can do to prepare for your reading:

~ Be open!
~ Have a clear mind.
~ Have a pen and paper handy if you want to take notes, or feel free to record your session.
~ I am very punctual so be ready for the time scheduled.

What you can expect from a reading:

I offer Psychic Medium Readings and In-depth Mediumship Sessions primarily by phone throughout Canada and USA. I do provide In Person Readings based on availability out of my house in Edmonton, AB, Canada. Before all reading appointments I take some time to connect to my client's energy using a process of meditation and automatic writing. I do not require any information from my client, not a photo or anything. I also do not ask any questions. For the majority of the appointment I provide all the channeled messages, psychic visions and information that come through, leaving time for questions at the tail end of the session.

The readings that I offer are conducted using a high level of sensitivity, professionalism and ethics. Fear not, the messages and information that come through are for your highest good.

Psychic Medium Readings: Psychic visions and spiritual messages connected to your past, present and future. Insight that resonates on a very deep level to help with direction and clarity. Messages relating to loved ones including pets who have crossed over help you gain peace and validation of your own connection. Details and information that only you would know are given.

In-Depth Mediumship Session: Focused solely on connections to the other side. Beneficial for individuals seeking extensive and thorough mediumship. Highly confidential and handled with the utmost professionalism.

Recommended Tips For Finding A Reputable Psychic Medium:

~ Choose a Psychic Medium or Medium who specializes in providing readings.

~ Connect with a Psychic Medium who you have been referred to by someone you trust or has reviews through a reputable third party website.

~ A higher price does not equate a better reading. It is a good idea to schedule your reading with someone who offers a range of prices and time. You do not need to break the bank and commit to an hour reading in order to receive valuable information and messages.

~ Do not select a Psychic Medium based on supposed certification or a list of classes listed on their website. Classes/ certification is not regulated and ultimately does not suggest anything more than the individual paid for some classes.

~ Avoid Psychic Mediums who place alot of emphasis on their learning from a so called famous Psychic Medium. The emphasis should be on their own abilities.

~ Stay far away from any Psychic Medium who removes curses or offers any type of spell casting for a fee.

Major Life Changes & Women's Hair

If you are ever wondering what is happening in the life of a woman. Look no further than the top of her head to her hairstyle. Around the time of life altering changes; before, during or after women will change their hair. Sometimes more drastically than others, but her hair will change. The reasons for this vary. To match a new lifestyle, to exude a new confidence, to break out of a comfort zone. This article is a cautionary tale of the rise and fall of my tresses, my reflections and words of wisdom.

Every woman has her hair (reality) and a vision in her head of her dream hair. For the most part I have always had shoulder length to long hair. I have greatly admired women who wear their hair short. Classic chin length bobs to super short pixie hair. Short hair on the right face with the right body, looks incredible. It puts focus on the face, neck and shoulders so beautifully. How could anyone miss the absolute femininity in this. Plus short hair always makes any outfit look chic.

After leaving a long term job, selling my home and a loved one who I was the closest to passed away suddenly, all in a relatively short time frame. I did what most women do when the world they once knew vanishes before their eyes. I grabbed the scissors. To water this down a little, I was trained to cut hair. It started off innocently enough. I went from mid-back to shoulder length. This did not make any impact on my look or spirit. So I took it up a notch, shoulder length to a short layered look that kept a little length with the style. This is where I should have quit. Under regular life changing circumstances I probably would have left well enough alone.

Nope, I took it to the next level. What was supposed to be a chic, Parisian inspired pixie style. Turned out to be a buzz cut. I was one hair cut away from being bald. The love of my life called it a "skull cap". Well let me tell you my new look did get a handful of compliments (all from women). It also provoked alot of backlash and negative reviews for the most part. In my opinion, it looked alright, ok, fine. Clearly not the look I was going for.

There is a saying "the only difference between a good and bad haircut is two weeks." Well whoever came up with this little cutie is nuts. It took a full year to grow my hair out to a flattering length and two years to grow my hair long again. Here is some of the epiphanies I had during the two years:

~ Love really is blind
~ If someone really loves YOU, your physical appearance will not be what really matters
~ People who actually care about you will not put you down
~ Dogs will love you with any hairdo
~ Beauty is really in how you carry yourself
~ You should not use the same amount of conditioner for short hair that you did for long hair unless you want to look really greasy
~ Parisian Chic is a multifaceted style not a haircut
~ You can straighten your hair to new extremes but your hair is still short

If you are in the process of growing out your hair here is a survival guide list of tips:

~ Dangle earrings go a long way 
~ Collared shirts, turtle necks and scarves for days when you miss your long hair, for a feeling of being covered
~ Accentuate your best feature on your face and body to boost your confidence
~ Be proud of yourself for being so daring
~ Regular trims to keep your hair healthy and to avoid having a mullet

Chopping off my hair was truly an eye opening experience. It is remarkable that hair really can be a safety blanket. As well as a magnifying glass for how we really feel about ourselves. Where we are in our life and how we are feeling at the time is revealed in our physical appearance. Your physical body is an extension of the real you. Be kind to yourself and your hair during the challenging times of struggle. 

"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles."

The Spirit of Sedona: Powerful Healing & Transformation in the Desert

Inside all of us is a deep rooted connection to the earth. More specifically an earthly element that resonates with the inner workings of our being. For some the ocean ebbs and flows through their soul. For others a song from the forest is heard by their true self. As far back as I can recall I have felt the powers of the desert alive inside my heart and soul. 

When I was a child I had not only dreams and visions of the desert but also memories. This was incredibly bizarre because I had not yet traveled to a desert nor did I have any exposure to anything really to do with the desert.

My very first actual experience with the desert was to Las Vegas, Nevada. Yes, I was captivated by the sensory overload of the neon lights, glamorous Vegas show girls and had beginners luck with the one armed bandits. I was however even more attracted to the vastness and mystery that surrounded Las Vegas. 

Over the years my gravitation to the desert has led me back to explore the Great Basin, Mojave and Sonoran Desert. From the eerily deserted roads to hiking the trails and becoming one with the flora and fauna. Watching a lightning storm of the desert sky is truly like no other. As an Albertan I am very much accustomed to magnificent open skies that showcase the most amazing light shows.

A handful of years back I spent a portion of my summer enjoying the luxuries and heat of Arizona. My life was at such a cross road and I was truly at one of the lowest points in my life. As it goes sometimes a new direction and the right path was not yet shown to me. 

I had done some research on the healing powers of the Vortexes in Sedona, Arizona and felt such a pull toward them. Upon arriving in Sedona I felt an inexplicable vibration. There are four main Vortexes in Sedona which are further categorized as feminine (energy entering the earth) and masculine (energy coming out of the earth). Cathedral Rock is identified as feminine, Airport Mesa and Bell Rock as masculine, Boynton Canyon is a combination of both. 

Now I am not sure if it was the summer heat or not understanding our map, but we took a few wrong turns on our hike. It really felt as though we were in the nexus of the universe. There is no real X marks the spot for each Vortex. Twisted Juniper branches and rock pile formations are found where the energy is the strongest.

Alot of information came through to me in a meditation at each location. Visions and answers to questions I had came through very vividly. All of which were 100 % accurate. 

Initially after leaving Sedona I did feel a real calm and sense of peace within. Returning home nothing at the time seemed to be any different though. Not immediately that is. The next several months came and went and my life literally transformed beyond my wildest dreams. The universe guided me in a way that I can not even begin to explain. Everything that was wrong in my life at the time came undone and untangled. My path was crystal clear to me, I had no doubt in my mind or heart. Opportunities presented themselves at exactly the right time. My life truly changed for the better. 

The desert continues to be my favorite and most spiritual place in the world. A beautifully written book that I highly recommend is called The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart by Ilchi Lee. 

"If you have a dream in your heart that beats with the pulse of the night sky, then your soul is happy."

Shining A Light On A Few Misconceptions About Psychic Mediums

Psychic and mediumship abilities have been demonstrated through the ages sparking great controversy. Historical events such as the Salem Witch Trials of the early 1690's offer a disturbing look at the grave consequences of sharing ones gift with the public. While our world has evolved on so many levels unfortunately there still exits very strong views on the matter that are terribly negative and even hateful.

A few exceptionally high profile individuals with the gift:

~ Nostradamus
~ Mark Twain
~ Jeane Dixon
~ Edgar Cayce
~ Baba Vanga

For those of you who are interested in a deeper understanding of all angles of psychic phenomena here is a short list of recommended subjects worth looking into:

~ Physics Law of Conservation Of Energy
~ Quantum Physics
~ Metaphysics

Recommended Authors:

~ Diane Hennacy Powell (Former Harvard Professor)
~ Russell Targ (American Physicist & Parapsychologist) 
~ Eben Alexander (American Neurosurgeon)

Misconception # 1: Psychic Mediums don't deserve respect. 

Working as a Psychic Medium I have witnessed first hand that this calling has a tendency to ignite a wide scope of reactions from people including vile outrage. I have encountered everything from charitable organizations deeming this career choice "too controversial" to be allowed to offer my support. To individuals feeling the need in social situations to let the world know in very rude contexts that they don't believe in Psychic Mediums. This industry is not for the weak I can assure you. Successful Psychic Mediums are not on this path to change your viewpoint or transform your beliefs. Validation exists in the high volumes of repeat clients and referrals. Recognition from people who offer sincere appreciation for the insight and peace delivered through the messages provided in readings. 

Misconception # 2: Psychic Mediums should know the winning lottery numbers.

Being a Psychic Medium is often confused with encompassing the all knowing powers and secrets of the universe. The reason I only charge a modest fee for my readings and I'm not charging thousands of dollars per session is that my ability has limitations. I have absolutely no control over what or who comes through in a reading. I channel messages and information by connecting to your energy through a process of meditation and automatic writing. I work with a high level of professionalism and provide readings to promote and encourage personal wellness. 

Misconception # 3: Psychic Mediums are as depicted on TLC's Long Island Medium.

It is against my personal ethics to invade others energy. I do not provide readings to anyone outside of a scheduled reading appointment in which my client has allowed me to connect to their energy. It is important to understand that television shows particularly reality shows are edited to produce dramatic emotional responses from viewers. I suppose that's why I'm not on television, a show with me watching Real Housewives and walking my dogs wouldn't exactly make for riveting programming.

Stay tuned for more articles on common misconceptions and other topics relating to Psychic Mediums.

A Dream Closet That's No Closet At All: The Art of Minimalism

Before I begin my story of how I was introduced to the life changing concept of minimalism. I am now thinking I should keep this on the down low out of fear of what the men in my life will now store in my virtually empty closet. Hmmm... bones, power tools, perhaps a George Foreman grill, YIKES!

One of my greatest passions in life is travel. Over time my checked baggage grew lighter with each new destination. Soon my full sized suit case was down sized to a carry on that was the maximum height and weight permitted in the cabin. Discontinuing to check my bag became a must as I started to travel long distances and tight connections meant a greater chance of my bags not making the connection. I have been very fortunate to have never been the victim of lost baggage and always had the fear that one day I would be. As I ventured off on new adventures my carry on bag started to get smaller and lighter. Those who travel often know that bigger and heavier baggage means more hassle and more to lug around. I began to research online ways to pack less. I came across tips from pro-travelers, one guy said that: the best way to not over pack is to not take a bag, brilliant!

One of the greatest feelings for me on a holiday is the complete feeling of freedom. Lighter bags equated to an even greater feeling of freedom. This amazing feeling always dwindled upon coming home. My home is in fact my favorite place in this world but that feeling of freedom and endless possibilities was just not the vibe in my home. It became clear to me that my home was full of so many THINGS. Alot of junk really just taking up space. As a child I grew up in a home that was very clean and clear of clutter. My mom was always on the lookout for what was no longer in use and could be given to charity. So how did my home as an adult get jammed up with so much crap?!

I had heard of the concept of minimalism but somehow envisioned this as some trendy idea that involved wearing thick, funky eyeglasses and dressing really modern. Luckily I stumbled upon the teachings of Marie Kondo and learned that minimalism is more about only having what sparks joy. After an epiphany of realizing that I should only surround myself with what sparks joy I started with a much needed culling and discarding of clothing and items in my home. It is amazing how much one can accumulate over time. Decluttering delivered not only more space but a real feeling of freedom. 

Some benefits of Less is More:

~ Small spaces appear much larger
~ Big savings
~ Appreciating what you have
~ Only purchasing clothing that you LOVE
~ Buying less inexpensive clothing and buying more good quality pieces with longevity
~ Realizing that you have everything you really need
~ Less stress
~ More of a focus on non-material items

My goal is to not even have a closet. Only to have one fabulous decorative clothing rack that showcases my clothing as a work of art. Having only clothing that I use on a daily basis on display. Ha ha, this might be a concept that my dog Teddy will have to be introduced to slowly. He currently finds great joy in running around the house with any clothing he finds. 

Here is a short list of items I believe every woman should have in her closet:

~ Beautiful well constructed, warm sweater
~ Cozy pair of pants for relaxing in on the weekend
~ Of course a little black dress that you feel beautiful in
~ Comfy yet stylish jeans
~ Classic flowy, drapey blouse 
~ Tailored blazer (are they called jackets now? ha ha I'm not that young anymore)

Life is really for living! Less of what you don't need and more of what you really do need. Appreciate what you have in this moment.

Dogs and their Guardian Angels

Miracles do happen and angels on earth do appear more often than some might realize. From inexplicable physical healing that illness almost destroyed to extreme near miss incidents and even near death experiences. There is countless books, documentaries, movies and television shows based on humans being touched by angels. What you don't hear about as often is dogs and their real life experiences with miracles and angels. This article features two dog stories of incredible angelic guidance.

Medicine Hat, Alberta: 1988 - Tiger was a family dog of mine growing up. He had a white coat with a delicate combination of silky waves and subtle curls. His dreamy coat after a bath glistened like crystals, a coat to put the creations of Vidal Sassoon to shame. His big black nose, I mean forget about it, big, black... beautiful! Now while he was a real good looking guy he had a few personality traits that made him really stand out from the crowd. For one he would get large meat bones after holiday dinners. He would transform into a savage wolf and show his teeth in such an aggressive manner that we all knew to stay away and leave him to his bone. He also would stop dead in his tracks when he had enough of his walk and my mom would have to carry his big butt home. 

My mom would get in these moods and go on cleaning rampages. Like with Tiger and his bone us kids knew to stay away from her too. Not sure what came over her but Tiger apparently had one too many accidents and my mom flew off the handle. She ran an ad in the newspaper (there was no kijiji back then) and just like that he was up to be given away. A seemingly nice family picked him up to take him to his new home and new life. It was incredibly upsetting for everyone that Tiger was leaving. 

A couple of weeks later my mom decided to phone the family and just check in on Tiger, see how he was making out. Only to find out the day they brought him home he took off. Tiger ran away from them the day he went to their house. Their home was on the other side of town near the South Saskatchewan River. My mom was overwhelmed with both guilt and fear. Where does one even begin with this? She phoned the city pound and they did say an unruly, aggressive white dog was giving them some trouble near the river a couple of weeks ago. Yup, that sounded exactly like Tiger. We hopped in our Ford Pinto and drove over to the area.

On arrival our hopes of finding him began to seem impossible. There was such a large area to cover and most of the river terrain was out of reach. We drove around for some time. Would you believe that out of nowhere a now filthy Tiger walked out of the bushy river wilderness?! We are talking two weeks without food, without water down by the river. There is a number of animals who could have eaten him. I mean anything could have happened to him. What he ate and drank is a mystery to us. In every part of my being I know that he was protected by angels and guided to come home with us. 

Tiger forgave my mom instantly. Isn't that funny how dogs are so loving and forgiving. Rest assured he was given the royal treatment and had a beautiful life.

Sherwood Park, Alberta: 2004 - Ralph came into my life in the year 2000. My husband and I were newlyweds. My husband began to tell me about a dog he had his eye on for a couple of weeks. He said there was this dog he really wanted over at the pet store in Millwoods Town Center. I was finally convinced to go check him out. On arrival I fell in love with an adorable Pomeranian in the window next to Ralph's. For some reason I just couldn't leave Ralph there. Although I first gravitated to the Pomeranian, I felt it in my heart that Ralph needed to comes with us. His eyes both mischievous and that of pure innocence spoke to my heart in an indescribable way.  

Ralph as a pup looked like a real show stopper. We were literally stopped down the streets of Banff by an earthy, spiritual enthusiast who said he was a very special dog and the Dalai Lama had a dog like him. Those who knew Ralph personally might laugh a little upon hearing this. He was more of a garbage enthusiast who found great adventure in hunting for food in trash cans. However he was also kind of a fancy guy who didn't like roughing it while camping in the mountains but would wallow in mud puddles he would search for along the Terwilliger dog park trails. 

As some Shih Tzu's experience Ralph unfortunately had a variety of health problems. The most devastating was an awful skin condition that would cause him to work on his pits and underbelly around the clock, licking and scratching. He had patches of fur missing and was clearly terribly uncomfortable. He looked terrible and you could tell he felt terrible. We took him to a number of vets who had no real answers and only offered expensive allergy testing. The problem we had with going ahead with the allergy testing wasn't the cost but the fact that it might not really tell us anything. The testing would only look at a number of possible allergens. No real potential answers and no real potential solutions.

I have always believed in the power of prayer. I prayed every night that some help for Ralph would be sent. He couldn't continue on like this. Would you believe that my prayers were in fact answered?! Out of pure chance my husband had spoken with a potential customer at work who gave him the number of a vet who only met with patients by referral. As luck would have it she was not too far from us. 

We scheduled an appointment immediately. This vet was the REAL DEAL. She had the warmest most amazing bed side manner I have ever witnessed for a vet. She also knew her stuff. Without hesitation she prescribed Ralph medication that did in fact work. His skin condition cleared up to the point that he could live with a real quality of life that he deserved. Although he did have flare ups from time to time and required medication, a special diet, medicated shampoos, regular vet visits. He was able to enjoy a long and full life. 

Ralph is truly one of the greatest gifts of my life. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him. I know in my heart that an angel directed us to the right vet. 

Life can be so difficult, I know. Don't ever lose hope, miracles do happen, angels really do exist for humans and animals.

The GOOD, BAD & UGLY of the Spirit World

The following are personal accounts of experiences with magic, ghosts and angels. From down right scary to the most divine. As I would love to end this article on a warm and positive note, I begin with...


St. Maarten, Caribbean Island - My morning started off wonderfully as my husband and I strolled the streets filled with lovely little island shops. We had come across a beautiful little store that sold hand carved decorative pieces, hand made journals and other gorgeous hand crafted items. On arrival the store clerk greeted us in a generally friendly tone. After browsing the art works carefully I decided to purchase a beautiful globe shaped wood piece and an amazing little journal. I negotiated with the clerk on the price. I would like to note that the reason I did this is because along my travels I have been the victim of rip off artists too many times than I would like to admit. Yes, they saw me coming a mile away. Trying to not get swindled again, I thought I would try to bargain down the price. The store clerk's friendly demeanor quickly changed to cold and angry. She did take my money and we exited with the two items in hand. She glared at me as we left. I would like to stress that I did not make out like a bandit or anything. I was only able to wiggle down the price just a hair.

My husband wanted to go enjoy a beverage and bite to eat just off the beach to over look the cruise ships and the sun sparkle on the clear waters. As we neared the beach I had the sensation that my eyes had just been dowsed with acid. A severe burning that was so intense I had to close my eyes. My eyes watered so much that my face and top were wet. I was so embarrassed to look like this absolute wreck. We made our way to a cafe and I sat there with my eyes closed, unable to see let alone admire the beautiful beach. I really feel that I was the victim of dark magic. There is some very scary island magic out there and I do think the store clerk cast some my way. Now this could all be a coincidence, but I do not know what could of made my eyes burn. No surprise that I ended up losing the journal. I do have the wood piece, I keep a rosary inside of it.


Athens, Greece - One evening after strolling the Plaka shops with no particular destination in mind. We were just enjoying another lovely sunset in Athens and people watching as we walked. As the sun disappeared and night fell, the air cooled. The warmth of lights and the scent of freshly cooked Greek food were terribly inviting. We took our seats at a cafe and were seated outside. Before we dined I went inside to use the bathroom. I was directed to walk down a hallway and then down a set of stairs. Nothing unusual about that. As I came to the end of the stairs what appeared before me reminded me of that movie Hostel. It was cold, dark and the walls were stone. There was not a men's and women's bathroom but a series of individual stalls that only had a toilet and floor to ceiling steel doors that were black. This bathroom gave me chills. When I entered a stall and shut the door I felt very uneasy and afraid. I felt as though my husband was miles away. All of a sudden the lights went out. It was pitch black in the stall. I felt a feeling of dread come over me and I fumbled as I tried to get out. As soon as I opened the stall and darted toward the stairs, the lights came back on. I washed my hands and ran up the stairs as fast as I could. Now I did not see any visible ghosts or anything like that, there was an energy down there that is indescribable. That feeling is clear in my mind.

Alcatraz Island, San Francisco, California - Alcatraz Island in itself holds enough stories that I will be writing future articles with this as the subject matter. In an effort to keep this article a reasonable length I am only including one connection that I had while on the island. Upon touring this historic site I felt the energy of both the inmates and the prison guards. Now I am not trying to make light of the prisoners as I do know there were some monsters who did time in Alcatraz. I did pick up on the energy of some prisoners who were not monsters at all, criminals yes but not monsters. I felt such sorrow, regret and a true vulnerability. I also picked up on some very mean and nasty monsters who weren't prisoners at all but in fact prison guards. I really felt that there are some horrific events that took place at the hands of some prison guards there. I know that many of the prison guards were good, honest, hardworking men but the energy I picked up on was dark and cruel. Which does make some sense because I feel that line of work attracts both insensitive individuals as well as those with a strong desire to help humanity. To stand in one of the jail cells I can assure you this prison is nasty. Nobody had it easy there. 


Rosson House Museum, Phoenix, Arizona - Located in Heritage Square this eye catching museum stands strong. Downtown Phoenix is kind of scary compared to it's neighboring desert dream of Scottsdale which is so lovely. We toured this hidden gem one sunny Arizona afternoon. On first glance of this structure one would expect to see a tumble weed roll on by. No such luck that day. As we took the tour which was guided by a very calm and knowledgeable lady. This fully restored 1895 Queen Anne Victorian House Museum displayed an exceptionally interesting look at Phoenix's history. As a Psychic Medium I connected with some spirits in the house. Who came through to me very clearly was children running around and hiding under the stairs. Their energy was very gentle. I told the tour guide about the energy I was picking up on. She showed us some writing that children from the past had wrote on the walls which validated what I was picking up on. The overall energy of this house is rather positive. 

Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria, British Columbia - This marvelously restored castle showcases a glimpse into the life of the upper class in the 1890's. My overall vibe was one of romance and promise. I felt a really good energy throughout the castle. Dancing, music, art, educated individuals, fashionable ladies, proper etiquette. All the markings of the privileged can really be felt. Very inspiring and romantic energy is here. 

St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Italy - Travelling to Rome, no doubt is one of the most beautiful, memorable trips of my existence. The entire city is exquisite in every regard. To enter and stand foot inside St. Peter's Basilica literally took my breath away. I honestly envision heaven to encapsulate all of my six senses responding the beauty. To say that this place is holy is a disturbing understatement. This is truly the holiest experience of mine. I felt my heart open to the sound of a choir that is the very essence of grace. What I felt there was so warm and the honest to goodness feeling of angels. Probably as close as I will ever feel to the Saints and angels. I felt so blessed to feel this level of goodness. My encounter here was an overwhelming feeling of angels that enveloped my heart. The entire duration of my visit to Rome, I called my mom every night to check in on my fur babies. I called her collect which was a challenge as their phone numbers are a mystery to me. We talked at length not really thinking about the upcoming phone bill as my mom did not have a long distance plan set up. What is really amazing is that my mom was never charged for our phone calls. I believe the angels took care of it for us.
