An Introduction to Your
Psychic Abilities and Energy
One night as I was doing some last-minute Christmas shopping, I
heard a group of excited teenagers discussing the blockbuster film
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and the series of books by J. K.
Rowling that have made her the second wealthiest woman in England.
They were saying how cool it would be to attend the fictional Hogwart's
School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where Harry Potter discovers
that he has extraordinary abilities that he never imagined existed
but that occasionally exhibited themselves in startling and detrimental
ways until he was taught to control these talents. I smiled to myself as
I thought about the esoteric school of clairvoyance that I attended, and
the one I later established in Sedona, where every day, every minute,
was a new adventure, filled with discovery, drama, mystery, and challenges
unheard of by most living beings. It still amazes and saddens me
that I lived twenty-seven years of my life without the slightest inkling
that I possessed clairvoyant abilities, and that there were schools that
could teach me things that were not supposed to even be possible.
It's my dream that someday there will be no need for clairvoyant
training schools because clairvoyant reading will be understood, encouraged,
and taught by parents as well as teachers throughout our educational
institutions. Unfortunately, we are not there yet. I hope this book
will provide the initial wake-up call for the slumbering adults in the
UnitedStates who are still oblivious to their own clairvoyant abilities
and talents and therefore unaware of their own true potential and that
of their children. If I could send everyone to a clairvoyant training
school, I would, but that is neither feasible nor really necessary. Instead,
I am bringing clairvoyant school to you, in this book, which I
am dedicating to the thousands of clairvoyant students and teachers
out there who can attest to the validity and usefulness of the information
and guidance you are about to receive.
This is the only book of its kind devoted to the specific psychic ability
of clairvoyance, although the techniques presented herein will aid in
the development and attainment of other spiritual/extrasensory abilities
as well. This book is based on the truism that every person is a natural-
born clairvoyant and healer, and with training, practice, and faith,
anyone can learn to perform detailed and accurate readings. The simple
techniques described here are guaranteed to lead to immediate results,
provided that you, the reader, do your homework.
This book will travel with you on your path of psychic and spiritual
development: from learning basic techniques, to coping with the challenges
of being psychic in mainstream society, to braving the business
world of professional reading. Most importantly, this book will help
you recognize how you naturally and constantly employ your psychic
abilities (clairaudience, telepathy, transmediumship, and clairsentience)
and will help you understand how these abilities may be enhancing or
hindering your life. This material will provide you with invaluable, empowering
tools that you can use in your everyday life, for the rest of
your life, for guidance, healing, protection, manifestation, and creativity.
This book will answer many questions and bring hope to those of
you who have been experiencing problems for which there are no "logical"
About the Author and Creation of this Book
I began my clairvoyant training in 1994 at the Berkeley Psychic Institute
in Berkeley, California, where I underwent an intensive thirteenmonth
clairvoyant training program. Within one week of my training,
which required us to attend class three hours a week and perform readings
two to three times a week, I was accessing my clairvoyance for the
first time in my twenty-seven years of existence in this lifetime. I was actually
performing accurate and helpful readings, which was not uncommon
for beginning students. Upon graduation, I went on to take classes
and work with beginning clairvoyant students at the Aesclepion Healing
Center in Marin County, California.
The Berkeley Psychic Institute was founded by a brilliant psychic
healer and spiritual teacher named Lewis Bostwick. Lewis recognized
that people were suffering from pain and distress as a result of their
lack of awareness of themselves as Spirit. He traveled throughout the
world studying and practicing a variety of religions and disciplines,
such as Catholicism, Scientology, the Rosicrucian Order, and Philippine
faith healing, all of which strongly influenced the development of his
clairvoyant reading and healing techniques. He designed and perfected
specific techniques that have served the thousands of students who
practiced them, as well as the hundreds of thousands of people who
have received psychic readings from these students. Lewis Bostwick
"fathered" generations of clairvoyant teachers, many of whom went
on to establish their own clairvoyant and healing institutes and training
I began my clairvoyant training about two months after Lewis'
death, and many of the techniques in this book were taught to me by
his talented students. Robert Skillman, David Pierce (founder of Intuitive
Way, a psychic training school), John Fulton (founder of the
Aesclepion Healing Center), and Chris Murphy were a few of my most
influential teachers. Lewis Bostwick believed in an oral tradition of
teaching. While his school published its own magazine with articles
presenting simple techniques and concepts, he never published a comprehensive
manuscript on clairvoyant training such as I am doing here.
I never received any written materials during my clairvoyant training
and have none to refer to as I write this book. Lewis felt that whoever
really needed the information supplied by his school would find their
In the late 1990s, I left my job as a federal probation officer in Oakland,
California, and moved to the Philippines for nine months, where I
studied with the faith healers and psychic surgeons and eventually met
Manuel, the father of my son. Manuel was a self-taught acupuncturist
and together we traveled to remote regions and villages, healing and
giving clairvoyant readings to the indigenous people who had no other
access to medical care or counseling.
After the birth of our son in Las Vegas, where I began my teaching
career doing workshops through a local spiritual organization called
Spiritual Endeavors, I found my way to Sedona, Arizona, where I embarked
on a career as a professional psychic and went on to establish the
Sedona Psychic Training Center out of my home. The Sedona Psychic
Training Center has never had an affiliation with the Berkeley Psychic Institute,
although its curriculum was partially based on my own course of
training from BPI and from the Aesclepion Healing Center, which was
founded by one of Lewis' most talented students, John Fulton.
The Sedona Psychic Training Center offered intensive month-long
training programs in order to fit the schedules and lifestyles of Sedona's
transient population, unlike its predecessors, which offered a lengthy
course of study of at least one year for students under the age of thirtysix
and two years for older students (many older students require
longer periods of study because they have more pictures, resistances,
programming, etc., to work through, although this is not nearly as true
today as it was twenty years ago when BPI was established).
My own thirteen-month course of clairvoyant training was a sacred
experience of which I would not trade a single minute. It was perfect
for who I was, where I was, and what I needed to achieve at the time;
however, I began to realize that not everyone desired, could manage, or
even needed such an intensive and demanding commitment. Most of my
classmates at Berkeley had no prior psychic training; in fact, many had
never had an identifiable clairvoyant experience in their life. However,
in Sedona, Arizona, many of my friends and students had been exploring
their spiritual paths for decades. They already had attained a certain
level of intuitive development. These were people who would never
have found their way into a yearlong clairvoyant training program because
they were not beginning students and would not tolerate being related
to as such.
Three months after my arrival in Sedona, I created a television program
called The Psychic Explorer: Adventures of the Spirit, which aired
on channel 17, Geronimo Communications, and later channel 18, the
Arizona Channel. I was the host, producer, and director. Channel 17
was only equipped to produce and air four hours of programming at a
time, so there were weeks where my half-hour to an hour program ran
every four hours, all day and all night long. Whether or not anyone intended
to watch my show, if they owned a TV in Sedona, there was no
way they could avoid it!
On the show, I would teach clairvoyant reading and healing techniques
and interview a variety of metaphysically oriented guests, several
of whom were graduates of various clairvoyant training programs
throughout the country. Sedona is a small town and I was constantly
being approached on the street, in the grocery store, the video store,
and even on hiking trails by people who expressed gratitude and a
burning interest in learning more about their clairvoyance.
At the same time, during reading sessions, client after client would
ask me questions about how to protect themselves, how to break
agreements with ex-lovers, how to overcome their blocks to manifest
or get more in touch with their own energies, how to communicate
with their spirit guides, and how to develop their clairvoyance. Occasionally
I would intuit that a yearlong clairvoyant training program
was appropriate for a particular client, but more frequently I would
find that teaching these clients a few specific techniques was all they really
needed. It became more and more apparent that trying to teach
these techniques in the course of ten minutes at the end of a reading
was not going to cut it. Many clients asked for books on the techniques
that I knew to be effective from direct personal experience and observation
of classmates and, later, my own students. I felt helpless and discouraged
that I could not refer them to such a book because to my
knowledge a book of this kind did not exist. I realized that the only
way I could provide these hungry people with the information they
needed in a simple, concise, and practical manner was to write a book
As I began work on the book you are now reading, my work with
my clients became more pleasurable and less stressful because I knew
that soon I would have a means to continue to help them long after our
session together had ended. Soon I would have a way to help masses of
people help themselves, which is really the key to long-term healing.
Before I had even finished writing the second chapter of this book, I already
had a long list of clients waiting for its publication.
In this book I will present the techniques that I learned through the
various clairvoyant training schools and workshops I have attended
and that I have found to work for myself, my classmates, and my students.
There is not one word herein that does not represent my own
truth based on time-tested personal experience. The process I have undergone
during the past seven years of my own spiritual and clairvoyant
development has been extremely challenging and, at times, stressful
and painful. After only one month of my own clairvoyant training, I
knew I would someday teach clairvoyance and healing, and I have approached
every single reading and personal experience from the perspective
that whatever I was learning was not just for myself, but for
my future students. You, the reader of this book, are as much my student
as those I have met face to face, and I am honored to share with
you keys to knowing yourself and the universe in ways you may have
Who Should Read This Book?
Whether you have a casual interest in psychic phenomena or a burning
desire to develop your abilities, there is something for everyone in this
book. The entertaining real-life stories, thought-provoking discussions,
and easy-to-follow techniques will appeal to novices and gurus alike.
The techniques are simple yet extremely powerful. In my workshops
and classes, I have witnessed beginning students accessing their clair-
voyance within a matter of minutes. Many professional psychics that I
encountered and taught in Sedona who had been reading for decades
were surprised and delighted to discover new methods of clairvoyant
development and healing techniques that profoundly enhanced their
work and particularly their own health and wellness.
This book offers explanations and insights into the energetic dynamics
of relationships, communication, and physical and mental health that
you may not find in any other manuscript. It is an eye-opening resource
for anyone in a helping profession, such as therapists, counselors, social
workers, nurses, psychologists, and even elementary school teachers.
Not only will it give you insights into many of your clients' problems, it
will also help you avoid and overcome burnout. What's more, it will
provide you with techniques you can put into practice and share with
How to Utilize This Book
First I implore you to read this book with an open mind. This is not a
research paper. There are no statistics and no reports of scientifically
controlled experiments, although it could easily be the impetus for numerous
experiments, and I encourage all readers to explore the
plethora of psychic research that has been written about in journals
and other books. The techniques presented here have been proven to
work by thousands of students who have performed countless hours of
readings over the past few decades. My purpose in presenting real-life
examples is not to convince you of anything, but to illustrate certain
ideas and concepts that I and many of my students have found to be
true for ourselves.
If you read this book with an open mind, it will increase your
awareness of yourself as a spirit and of the unseen forces around you
that affect you, whether or not you choose to diligently practice the exercises.
If you do practice the clairvoyant techniques, you will discover
your clairvoyance. It is my belief that learning through experience is
the only way to know truth. This book is designed to create a safe and
effective learning environment so that you may have your own experiences
leading to truth and greater enlightenment.
For those of you who are natural-born skeptics, I ask you to exercise
patience, not just with this book, but with yourself. While skepticism
is healthy and necessary in moderation, an unwillingness to even
consider that there is more to life than what your eyes see can be detrimental
to your health, relationships, and life in general, as I will illustrate
in later chapters.
Fanatical skepticism, atheism, doubt, and negativity are dense energies
in the form of programmed thoughts and emotional pain that block
your abilities and prevent positive, nurturing experiences from gracing
your life. The only way to work through these blocks is to ask the universe
to bring you experiences that will open your mind, and then be patient
and permit the answers to arrive in unexpected ways. I realize that
asking the faithless to have faith is an oxymoron, but it is not impossible.
If you cannot suspend your judgment long enough to attempt to have
an experience that might teach you something, then ask yourself what
emotion (probably fear) is behind this resistance. Ironically, every single
skeptic I have met that had such a vengeful resistance to the possibility of
extrasensory perception was actually more sensitive and more naturally
intuitive that the average human being. A quotation I read years ago in a
book about past lives has always stuck with me: "It is no more amazing
to have lived many lives than to live even one life" (author unknown).
The fact that we humans exist at all is so mind-boggling and wondrous
that to question the possibility of anything in this world is a wonder to
me. What a miracle we all are regardless of our psychic abilities! If you
so sincerely doubt the possibility that you are psychic, how can you even
believe in your own existence?
For believers and skeptics alike, I suggest that you first read the
book from cover to cover and then go back and practice the exercises.
Many of the chapters build upon the preceding one, so reading them in
chronological order will enhance your comprehension of the material.
Of course, as with anything, there are no rules that apply to everyone.
Some of you may be drawn to the book because of a single sentence;
intuitively opening the book to a particular page where a much-needed
message is waiting may be all you ever need from it.
I recommend practicing the clairvoyant exercises and psychic tools
as they are prescribed, since every step of each exercise is presented for
a specific reason. However, if you feel uncomfortable with a particular
exercise or are not getting results with continued practice, go within
yourself and see what modifications you can come up with that will
work better for your particular needs.
What is clairvoyance?
Clairvoyance means seeing clearly. It is the ability to access and decipher
visual information through extrasensory means in the form of images
or pictures. It does not involve the eyes, but rather the infinite universe
behind the eyes. When you access your clairvoyance, you are
using the same mechanics and parts of your brain that are active when
you dream or use your imagination to visualize. If you have the ability
to visualize anything, even something as simple as a circle, then you
have clairvoyant ability. When you perform a clairvoyant reading, you
relax your logical mind and let information in the form of images appear
to you. Often you will obtain information that you could not possibly
have obtained through logical or physical means.
Why would I want to learn how to do clairvoyant readings?
First and foremost, the reason to do clairvoyant readings is because
they are fun! It is like sitting back and watching a movie unfold before
your eyes, or dreaming while you are awake. You get to see all kinds of
fascinating things, and access information firsthand about other people
and yourself that you would otherwise never get to experience. Clairvoyant
reading is like embarking on a great adventure: you are often
surprised by the images that appear, and like a detective you work your
way through clues in the form of pictures, sounds, colors, and feelings
until you solve the mystery of what these images mean for the person
you are reading.
Clairvoyance enables you to know your fellow men and women on
an extremely intimate level. It enables you to tap into the deepest
realms of the subconscious mind of yourself or of any creature, including
your pets. It automatically turns you into the master of all time
travelers: with your spirit as captain and your clairvoyance as your
time machine, you can easily zoom from the past to the future (which
you are really doing all the time anyway, just without awareness), enabling
you to bring back immeasurable treasures of insight to your present
body. Also, when you "read" energy, you can alter it, so having
clairvoyant ability not only makes it possible to pick up information
about people that they themselves aren't even privy to, it also makes it
possible to help them heal, change, and grow.
A clairvoyant reading can be extremely beneficial for both the person
receiving the reading (the readee) and the person performing the
reading (the reader). Clairvoyant reading is a form of meditation. More
than any other mental exercise, it forces you to concentrate, since the
second that your attention wanders, you will stop accessing information
and this will be immediately apparent to the reader and readee.
Clairvoyant reading brings you into a state of relaxation and makes it
impossible for you to continue to focus on your own worries.
When you clairvoyantly read other people, you naturally heal yourself.
By the end of a session, you are often in a completely different
frame of mind and emotional state than you were at the beginning.
Disciplined use of your clairvoyance will send you sailing through vast
oceans of perceptions, paradigms, experiences, challenges, and opportunities
that were previously nonexistent, or at best were only murky
shadows in your logical mind. Through doing clairvoyant readings you
will process energy, break patterns and programming, and heal wounds
and heartbreaks for yourself and the person you are reading faster and
more easily than you ever would doing anything else in your life! Reading
other people helps you gain insights into your own situation because
you will be drawn to read people who are mirrors for yourself.
While reading yourself may be a bit trickier than reading other
people (since it is harder to concentrate and you have more biases to
work through), you'll find it very valuable when you need clarification
about a relationship in your life or are wondering about an upcoming
event, like the result of a job interview.
Through developing your clairvoyance, you will access your power
in ways you never imagined. I use the term power in the sense of personal
power, power over oneself. While clairvoyance can give you power
over other people as well, as in some forms of black magic or voodoo,
that is not a path I chose to pursue and one that will not be addressed in
this book. Control over others is always fleeting and self-defeating because
what you are usually trying to get from someone else is what is
missing in yourself, or is based on uncomfortable emotions within your
own body from which you are trying to escape. It is only when you find
your own inner power and peace that you can be truly satisfied.
If people are not doing what you want them to do or are not giving
you what you desire, go inward and ask yourself how you can change
your own thoughts and actions in order to obtain the joy you seek.
Otherwise, you are going to waste a lot of your own vital energy, hurt
other people, probably incur some nasty karma, and in the end be no
further from where you began. (Think about a time in your life when
you tried to change someone's mind about something they felt strongly
about, or when you manipulated them into doing something against
their will. Is that person still in your life? Were the consequences lasting
and fulfilling? Probably not!)
Along with increasing your personal power and confidence, clairvoyant
development will help you access a higher form of learning: you
will learn through direct experience rather than through regurgitation
of someone else's information. You will be better able to discern fact
from fiction, truth from lies. Clairvoyance can also be utilized to help
access creative energies and ideas that can greatly enhance creative projects
and artistic endeavors.
What is the difference between clairvoyant reading
and spiritual counseling?
A clairvoyant reading is one of the most effective and easiest forms of
therapy/counseling because the clairvoyant can immediately identify the
client's core issues; uncover unconscious motivations, desires, dreams,
and fears; and actually witness and thus validate the client's past and
present external and internal experiences. An experienced clairvoyant
can identify and bypass a client's defense mechanisms within a single
session. He or she can see through the most convincing persona and reveal
the true face behind the most deceptive mask.
Because information is accessed through extrasensory means, the
usual pitfalls of traditional psychotherapy can be minimized or even
avoided during a clairvoyant reading, provided the clairvoyant understands
these may be present and is open to receiving and committed to
sharing whatever information emerges. Some of these pitfalls include
faulty or deceptive self-reporting by clients; a client's inability to communicate
(due to age, interpersonal skills, or disability); erroneous
identification of the problem or issue by the client and therapist; and
the time-consuming and difficult task of establishing trust.
A doctor deals with the physical body. A psychotherapist deals with
the psychological, cognitive, and emotional functioning of the individual.
A social worker may deal with the psychological as well as social,
family, political, economic, and community factors. A clairvoyant deals
with all of these plus one additional and essential element: the spirit. A
clairvoyant can see the spirits of humans, both living and deceased.
Clairvoyants can see the spirits of animals, plants, and alien life forms.
A clairvoyant can even see ascended beings such as Jesus and Buddha
and, of course, the greatest spirit of them all, God (see chapter 21).
It is not only unfortunate but downright tragic that so many people
(spirits) live their whole lives having no knowledge that they are something
other than a physical body and mind. These people can never
fully know their true self or who they really are because they are not in
touch with their true essence. People who have no concept of their own
spirit often suffer from depression and feelings of hopelessness and
frustration, and their lives as well as the process of their death are riddled
with pain and fear.
In order for a person to thrive, that person's spirit must be nurtured
through recognition and validation. Clairvoyance is actually an ability
of the spirit. A clairvoyant accesses information by connecting with a
readee's spirit or the Universal Spirit and then brings this information
into the physical and mental realms.
For many people, the first time they feel as if they have truly been
"seen," recognized, understood, and respected for who they really are
is during a clairvoyant reading. To give this gift to a fellow human
being is one of the most rewarding aspects of performing a reading.
A clairvoyant reading is a powerful catalyst for self-awareness and
growth not just because it has a psychological effect on a person but
because it actually has an effect on one's energetic and psychical body.
It can elicit an instantaneous change in perception for both the client
and the clairvoyant. When a clairvoyant looks at energy, that energy
responds with movement. So emotions and pain, which are energy,
may instantaneously be released. When a clairvoyant focuses on those
energies and wills them to behave in a certain way, a "clairvoyant healing"
is being performed.
Why would anyone want to receive a clairvoyant reading?
People have a lot of misconceptions about what clairvoyant/psychic
readings are all about. While they can be used to access information
about the future, a good clairvoyant reading will also focus on you in
present time and see what is working for you or what changes need to
be made in order for you to create the type of future you would like to
have. Readings can help clarify your feelings and experiences and dispel
confusion. While they can tell you things you didn't know, more
importantly they will often uncover thoughts and feelings that you
were afraid to admit to yourself. Sometimes when a relationship is
headed in the wrong direction, such as in a violent or abusive marriage,
we need an objective witness who can say, "This is what's going on and
it's not conducive to your well-being." When a psychic you have never
met tells you the details of your life and how remaining in your current
situation is detrimental to your self-respect and physical health, you really
can't remain in a state of denial. Hearing the truth from someone
who does not know you or your situation makes a much greater impact
than hearing the same thing from your family and friends who
may be biased and too emotionally involved in your situation.
Readings can be performed on couples and families as well as individuals.
They can serve as an extremely powerful form of marriage or
relationship counseling since the reader does not need to rely on self-reports
of who is to blame. The reader can look at agreements and past
lives between the couple and see what is working for them as well as
what's not. He or she can communicate thoughts and feelings that one
partner may have been unable to adequately and neutrally voice. A
clairvoyant reader/counselor can also look to see where the masculine
and feminine dynamics of each partner are in conflict or harmony.
Why would I want to do clairvoyant healings?
Whether you are aware of it or not, you already are healing people
around you. Whenever you sympathize with someone, whenever you
wish you could help or change or transform someone's pain and suffering,
you are healing that person. Most people have never thought of
themselves as a healer or sought this out as a profession, but we all
(with the exception of sociopaths) have experienced a desire to help.
When we have that desire, when we feel someone else's pain as our
own, when we attempt to give them advice, when we pray for them or
try to change them, when we become frustrated with them for being
stuck in their lives, we are calling forth our healing energy.
This has both positive and detrimental effects on that person and
on ourselves, as we will discuss in the next few chapters. When you understand
the dynamics and effects of your own healing energy and abilities,
you will be better equipped to make the conscious choice of what
you would like to do with your energy (which dictates your mental and
physical health). You can decide whether or not you want to share
someone else's suffering and whether or not you want to take on or interfere
with their karma and spiritual path. Instead of feeling helpless
or drained and transmitting negative energy (in the form of worry or
judgment), you can actually learn to consciously employ simple techniques
that will likely have a useful effect on a person you care about.
The purpose of learning how to heal is not just to help others, but to
avoid healing in ways that are inadvertently dangerous to yourself and
to those around you.
If I am so psychic, why don't I know it?
I still marvel at the fact that I could have lived most of my life without
knowing I had any clairvoyant ability, or even knowing what clairvoyance
is. Most people don't believe me when I tell them that they have the
same ability that I and many of the best psychics out there have, because
they mistakenly believe that if they did have that ability, they would
surely know it. Well, how do you know if you have any ability? The only
way is by attempting it. If you never attempted to sing, you would not
know that you had a beautiful voice. If you never attempted to play the
piano, you would not know that you have the ability, with training and
practice, to play the piano. The same is true with clairvoyance. With
knowledge of some simple techniques and a moderate dose of patience,
practice, and discipline, anyone can access their clairvoyance.
Thanks to religious influences dating back to the time of the Inquisition,
mainstream society has done its best to squelch any sign of psychic
abilities and gifts in children (and its adult members) through techniques
ranging from ridiculing and ignoring signs that a child is
communicating through extrasensory means, to punishing and forbidding
the child to ever speak of such matters. Between being burned at
the stake in past lives and being laughed at by the people we love and
depend on in this lifetime, it is no wonder that we have turned off our
natural abilities to the point that we forget we even have them!
Even in today's modern world, many of the psychics I know feel
they must remain "in the closet." Much like gay and lesbian people,
many talented psychic readers and healers hide their activities, abilities,
and true selves from their families, coworkers, and neighbors out of fear
of being ridiculed, misunderstood, labeled, ostracized, and discriminated
against. These closet psychics are some of the most dedicated,
honest, loving, and concerned citizens on this planet, and it is a travesty
that they feel they have to hide their good deeds in order to maintain
their jobs or relationships with people who reject and fear their
own spiritual abilities. I know many of these psychics. I was one of
Of course, there are some psychics and spiritual leaders out there
who would rather maintain the illusion that they somehow have been
given special gifts that set them above the average person. This is done
by some to maintain power, prestige, and wealth, and by others out of
ignorance. Also, many "followers" of psychic gurus prefer to believe
that their designated human "God" is more powerful than they are and
will do whatever they can to maintain this illusion in order to avoid
taking responsibility for their own lives. Ironically (since they will tell
you they are following a guru in order to reach enlightenment), this act
of dependence can block them from reaching their fullest potential.
People often turn to gurus because to go it alone is sometimes a dif-
ficult, lonely, and uncertain path. Many people want to believe that a
guru or specific religion has all the answers because the truth that no
one really knows for sure what the heck is going on out there can be
really scary. Gurus and spiritual teachers can be very helpful and sometimes
essential to personal growth, provided the relationship between
student and teacher is balanced and healthy.
Many spiritual groups throughout the ages have sought to control
information similar to that shared in this book because they feared that
people would not use it ethically or responsibly. It's my belief that
people are already doing so much harm by using their abilities without
awareness that far more people will benefit from understanding the information
presented in this book than will misuse it. There are so
many books in existence that directly address the subject of black
magic, available to those with ill intentions, that there is no reason for
anyone to bother trying to extract information for evil purposes from a
text such as this one that is intended only to enhance people's lives.
The greatest enemy of awareness is fear. Many people have so
much fear about what is behind the door to their own personal power
and freedom that they choose to remain in the dark. The path of clair-
voyance is a path of personal transformation, and transformation is
not always easy, as you surely know. When you begin to open up to
your clairvoyance, it is like bringing a bright lantern into an ancient
cave. You may or may not like what you see. There may be breathtaking
crystal formations or perfectly preserved hieroglyphics, or decaying
mummies guarded by drooling, man-eating tigers! While you can dim
the light or even turn it off, you can never totally forget what you saw
during the period of illumination, or how it felt to see so clearly. This is
one of the major reasons people shy away from exploring their psychic
Sometimes during my workshops I'll ask the audience, "If there
were a stranger hiding in your house, would you want to know about
it or would you rather he just stay hidden away so you wouldn't have
to deal with him and feel the fear and anxiety that might arise from the
awareness that he is there?" Most people respond that of course they
would want to know about this stranger so that they could protect
themselves and get rid of him. I wonder how many people feel the
same way about all the "strangers" in the form of spirits or foreign energies
that are lurking in their auras and chakras, playing havoc with
their relationships and communication with others as well as their
I choose to know what is really going on, no matter how ugly "it"
is, so that I can choose whether or not I wish to keep "it" in my life. In
this book you will learn how to turn on the light and then deal with or
conquer anything you don't wish to have in your personal space. By
using the techniques presented here, your fear will diminish because
you will know that you really can handle just about anything lurking
in the dark.
The path of clairvoyance is one that must be undertaken by choice
and free will. Undoubtedly many readers are still questioning whether
they have psychic abilities, or if they have them to the extent that I suggest.
The only way I can convince you of this truth is to share the techniques
that have not only been proven effective by myself, but by thousands
of others. You must do the rest.
What kind of impact will this book have on my life?
Beware: this book is likely to bring about change in your life! Just as
energy is moved and altered when a clairvoyant sees it during a reading,
energy is also altered when you read books like this one. When energy
moves, perceptions and beliefs begin to get shaken up. It's like an
inner earthquake of the mind and emotional body. My teachers refer to
this phenomenon as a "growth period." A growth period is actually a
very exciting thing because it will turn you into more of who you really
are and want to be and can get you back on your spiritual path.
However, while undergoing a growth period, you may experience
extreme emotions (such as sadness, fear, or anxiety) and sometimes a
short period of turbulence in various aspects of your life. This is because
we live in the illusion that our thoughts are the truth. The more
we believe in our convictions, the more secure we feel. As we release
and move energy, our convictions may suddenly crumble-our security
blanket may be snatched out from underneath us with little warning
(consider this to be your warning!).
As our convictions metamorphose into newer and more productive
ways of thinking about ourselves and the world around us, our behavior
may change, which will elicit change and reactions in those around
us. As energy moves, either from reading a book or giving or receiving
clairvoyant readings and healings, many of the emotions and pain we
have ignored and suppressed from birth (and sometimes even before
birth) may surface so they can be released, assimilated, and processed
in a healthier way. As this energy in the form of physical and emotional
pain is released, we may experience it in the present and misinterpret it
as having to do with something happening in the present. This is
known in psychological terms as transference.
If your reaction to a present situation is more extreme than the situation
logically warrants, this is a sign that your present situation is
merely triggering emotions that you did not adequately deal with in the
past. The best way to handle a challenging growth period is to recognize
when you are in one, to stop resisting it, and then to enjoy the
If you find yourself in a particularly difficult growth period and
would like communication from professionals who understand what
you are experiencing, there are numerous clairvoyant training centers
with a caring staff and enthusiastic students throughout the United
States that will be happy to discuss your situation for free or give you a
reading or healing, in person or long-distance, for a very modest price
(see chapters 24 and 25).
