I discovered John Edward when his TV show Crossing Over With John Edward aired on the Sci Fi channel from 1999 through 2004. I enjoyed the show and tuned in almost every night. For some reason it resonated with me. I took some comfort in thinking maybe there was some truth behind what the guy was doing, which was communicating with souls of people no longer with us.

Many who watched were skeptical of his abilities, assuming he was either an excellent cold reader or had gained knowledge of his audience through devious means. Neither rationale seemed plausible. He’d been around too long, and had traveled the world doing readings for many hundreds of people. Surely in all that time he would have been defrauded.

Let’s face it. It’s easier to dismiss someone like John Edward than it is to take the time, read his writings and listen to people he’s read to find out if what they experienced rang true. An educated opinion means more than one culled from a mean spirited episode of South Park.

But I digress…

In his most recent book, Infinite Quest Develop Your Psychic Intuition to Take Charge of Your Life, John Edward proves that despite his lofty calling he is down-to-earth and a realist. In his his writings he is ethical and moral, and shows great respect for his abilities (he refuses to call them gifts) and the process of mediumship.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to speak with Mr. Edward by phone. During the course of our conversation, we discussed his new book, his efforts to demystify mediumship and spirituality, and what it takes to hone one’s psychic abilities.

“If you had seen me twenty-five years ago, you wouldn’t have believed it,” he laughs. Over the years, he has worked hard to strengthen his abilities and become more adept at the ‘process’. Still, he considers himself a ‘student of the universe’ and is as enthralled by the process as those who share his beliefs. Infinite Quest is his way of making the subject of intuitiveness more accessible to those who are interested but know little about it. The subject matter might be intimidating but Mr. Edward’s writing eases you into it. “I wanted it to read like I was chatting with you in your living room.” He definitely succeeds.

Intuitiveness, Mr. Edward says, is something everyone is born with. And though not everyone can become a medium (“Mediums are born, not made”), anyone can learn to raise their intuitiveness to a higher level. It’s not easy. Mr. Edward maintains that work is involved, hard, life changing work which could possibly cause you to lose friends and alienate loved ones. Like I said, he is a realist. But, he maintains, if you are diligent and apply yourself, you will most likely succeed.

If you are interested in bettering yourself or, as he says, “becoming a better YOU” there are many ways you can go about it. He writes about developing your psychic energy, understanding psychic potential, using divination tools, and, if you want to eventually do readings, how to go about preparing for it. You can’t be lazy and you need to watch for pitfalls such as ego, which he also refers to as the Inner Monster. “The Inner Monster is the downfall of many metaphysical practitioners, professional psychics, and people with these intuitive abilities. These individuals believe they are the music when they are simply the instrument. The Monster is a creature within that will never allow its host to “see, hear, feel or experience anything that doesn’t stroke, encourage or worship its ego.” Obviously, humility is key.

He speaks of God, not as a religious figure but as a concept. When I asked how people react to this idea he replied, “With great warmth,” and thinks that these days people are more open to a spiritual, universal definition of a higher power.

He writes at length of spirit guides (or the Team), and how everyone has them, even those who don’t believe. “It’s like elements and molecules. You might not know what they’re called or understand them. But they’re still there. Your Team can’t do things completely for you, but if you listen and learn how it communicates with you, you will gain incredible insights.”

Obviously this sort of metaphysical thinking is not for everyone. But if you have the least bit of interest in the psychic realm, you’ll find delving into John Edward’s Infinite Quest an excellent way of learning more about it.

Quickie Sunday Morning Post

There’s nothing like sleeping in and kicking back on a lazy Sunday morning with no one else around!

Dreamy meadow at dawn
Dawn breaks over the dream meadow

Yesterday, I had the privilege of giving a presentation of my psychic art to a decent-size gathering in Luray, Virginia, by invitation. I’d offered to do a few private readings in the afternoon and was floored by the response. Not only did I have a couple…I was overbooked and had to turn away a couple. I ended up doing six consecutive readings…the last one was an experimental two-person reading. They seemed pleased with the result and was asked to return on a future date to be decided.

My spiritual “sister”, a member of my group of metaphysical students, was my hostess. I came straight from work on Friday and we met for a nice dinner in Front Royal followed by a soak in her country home’s hot tub. She lent me an excellent book to read and I stayed up too late reading, but we still made it on time.

I’m always amazed at the generosity and friendliness of the people I have to pleasure to meet along life’s road. I look forward to returning sometime soon! 

Blessed Change, or Tarot me a Reading

A major life change brings you great blessings

This is showing up more and more in my life…I suspect in many people’s lives. Tarot has been a wonderful tool in pulling out the underlying causes; I’ve been doing Tarot readings for awhile now and the results are astonishing…even to me.

I wanted to create a new graphic to illustrate the nature of sacred change. I’m calling this series of graphics, Sacred GeoMancy, an example is below.

Emotional Empath: Is This You?

NOTE: We all may FEEL like we’re being zapped by these people, but there’s a big difference when you’re actually an empath!

The Go Between: Psychics, Mediums and Integrity by Melissa Leath

Do you always feel badly when you are around a group of people? Do you seem to have physical symptoms that you didn’t think are yours? Do you have problems with depression, or mood swings? Then you could be empathic.

I know; that doesn’t really help you just now, to know you could be empathic. Especially if you aren’t aware of what that is. But hopefully I can spread of little bit of information your way, along with several steps to use to ease the situation, and have a better handle on things.

First of all, let’s try to understand what being empathic is.Being empathic means the ability to feel other people’s emotions as your own: you literally feel what other people are feeling. You may be aware of it, but usually people don’t know that they have this ability
and subsequently feel like the misery is all their…
