Frequently asked questions
My psychic readings have been called enlightening and transformational. Many of my clients call me "Amazing Grace" due to my extraordinary insight and accuracy. It would be my honor and my pleasure to assist you with my psychic gifts.
How long have you been doing psychic readings?
I have been doing psychic readings professionally for the general public since 1991, and have done thousands of readings for people around the world. Prior to that, I was based in New York City employing my psychic gifts for international corporations.
Are you naturally gifted or did you learn to be psychic?
I am both naturally gifted psychically as well as having been trained to be a professional intuitive. Psychic abilities run in my family. Both of my grandmothers were psychic, and studied all aspects of spirituality and metaphysics from the 1920's onward. Both of my parents are highly intuitive, and my father used his gift of seeing auras to help him in business negotiations. I am the only professional psychic in my family. I was trained and mentored by the Intuitive Consultant to the U.N., who insisted that I offer my psychic gifts to the public, and this became my Calling.
When did you know you were psychic?
I was always "very sensitive" as a child, and I always knew what people were feeling and thinking. People of all ages often came to me for guidance and direction, even when I was a very young child. My mother often got upset with me because "I knew things" that I shouldn't have known. The first truly "psychic" experience that I remember happened when I was 7 years old: my mother came to tell me that a dear friend of the family had died, but I already knew because he had come to me in spirit form the night before and stood at the foot of my bed.
What psychic gifts do you have?
I am clairvoyant (the gift of psychic sight or psychic vision), clairaudient (psychic hearing) and clairsentient (psychic feeling). This means that I receive psychic messages through images and visions that I see, through things that I hear, and through things that I feel (I can feel what other people are feeling, which is also known as empathy, or being "empathic"). I am able to receive these psychic impressions and messages across any distance, through all time and space.
How accurate are your psychic readings?
My clients tell me that my accuracy level is greater than 90%. Some clients have phoned me years later to tell me that, at the time of the psychic reading, they didn't believe what I said would come true, but that the circumstances unfolded just as I said they would in time. Ultimately, you have the power of choice in your life, and you can change your future if you choose to. I believe that this is the true benefit of having a reading - to highlight the things that you want to enhance in your life, as well as the things that you may want to change. (see testimonials)
Where are you getting your psychic information?
I connect with my guides, with ascended masters, angels, Archangels, and with the Divine Source of all knowing. I have had several experiences in my life of being "awakened in the Light" and am able to access the Source at will as a result. I am also able to access the Akashic Record, which holds the record of each soul. In a reading, I will also connect with you, your energy and your guides to receive information about you specifically. I receive psychic information through my gifts of clairvoyance (psychic sight), clairaudience (psychic hearing), and clairsentience (psychic feeling).
When you do readings, are you channeling?
I go into an altered state so I can access higher planes and higher guidance, so technically I am channeling. However, I do not change my voice or speak with an accent, and I am conscious and present throughout the reading. Only those who know me well could perceive any difference in my voice and demeanor, which change very slightly. I have had clients who have listened to each other's tapes right after each other tell me that my voice, my wording and my way of speaking is quite different for each one of them.
Are you a medium?
Although I have the ability to connect with those on the spiritual plane, I do not specialize in contacting those who have passed over, and prefer only to do this on rare occasions where it is necessary for healing and completion to occur, such as with the loss of a child or spouse, or in the case of suicide. I do not work with criminal cases, missing persons, or violent circumstances because I find that this is very painful, traumatic, and draining for me as I empathically feel what other people feel.
Are you a medical intuitive?
I am not specifically a medical intuitive, however, I am able to see and perceive the underlying issues that are causing any given situation. Everything in this world and in this Universe is energy, and that energy must move in a certain flow. When that flow becomes blocked or disrupted through pain or trauma, then blockages occur in the body in the form of disease. By clearing the energy blocks, and the underlying causes of them, we can support the body to heal and transform itself. All healing occurs from within, but must be directed by conscious awareness and intention. In a spiritual healing session, we can address what is at the root and the heart of the issue - clearing that will clear the energy block, allowing the body to return to its natural state of wholeness, health and vitality.
Do you read my astrological chart or zodiac sign?
No, I am not an astrologer - I receive information about you purely psychically. I ask for your date of birth (I don't need your birth time) to connect me to the Akashic Record, the record of your soul that is accessed on the psychic and spiritual plane.
Do you do horoscopes?
No, I do not offer horoscopes, but I do offer Daily Guidance, a free daily inspirational quote that gives you the message and theme for each day at www.DailyGuidance.com, which some people have told me is better than a horoscope.
Do you speak other languages?
Yes, I speak French and some Spanish. I prefer to work in English, which of course is my first language, but I can do my work in French or Spanish if necessary.
Why do you do the work you do?
I love to help people, and I have always been asked to help people with my gifts since early childhood. I was always the one that people of all ages came to for advice and guidance. I did not plan to be a professional psychic when I grew up, but this work called me into service. It is my intention to use my gifts to help people transform their lives, to live a life of joy and fulfillment, and to get the most out of this lifetime. I believe that we all have the power of choice, and I can help people to make the best choices for themselves and their lives. I feel it is a great honor and a great privilege to help people the way I do. Many of my clients (including priests and doctors) have called me their "spirit doctor" and have told me that they felt that they had nowhere else to turn for spiritual guidance. Many other clients have told me things they have never told another soul, and others who have addressed spiritual and paranormal issues with me that few others could understand or help with. This work is a sacred trust, and I offer it from my heart. I love hearing people's stories and receiving their testimonials about how I have helped them over the years, and this inspires to continue sharing my gifts with others.
ABOUT PSYCHIC READINGS
How long is a psychic reading?
A psychic reading takes about an hour. The first 20 minutes or so, I will deliver information to you that is coming through for you, usually addressing where you are in your life in the present, what your gifts and abilities are, what aspects of the past are impacting and affecting you now, and what opportunities, situations and choices are likely to present themselves in the next 6-12 months. The rest of your reading will be directed by your questions, which can be about anyone or anything. If you have a lot of questions (more than 15), please let me know at the beginning so I make sure I cover everything for you.
Do you provide a tape?
Yes, I tape the session, recording both sides of our conversation. You will want to use the best telephone land line that you have available to you so that your side of the conversation is recorded with the best quality. I test the tape before we begin the session to make sure it is recording properly at the time of the reading, but on rare occasions, psychic information can affect tapes in strange ways - sometimes information can "disappear" (leaving patches of the tape, or an entire side seeming blank or garbled), but the information tends to reappear weeks or months later when the person is ready to hear it. This happens rarely, but it does happen. If you want to record the session yourself as well, that is fine, just do not begin recording before I call, and do not leave your machine on "pause" before I call, or my telephone call will encounter a busy signal and will not be able to get through.
How many questions can I ask in a reading?
You can ask as many questions as time allows, usually up to 10-12 questions. If you have a lot of questions written down, let me know at the beginning so I make sure to cover everything. It is best to put your questions in order of priority so we make sure we address the most important issues first. Usually, an hour-long reading provides a lot of time to cover everything, and I will not end the reading until it feels complete.
What information do you need from me before the reading?
The only information I need from you before the reading is what telephone number I can reach you at when I call you at the appointed time. Once I call you for the session, I will ask you for your full name at birth, your birth date, and sometimes your birthplace - this is all I need to begin the reading. In the days before your reading, it is a good idea if you write down your questions ahead of time so we make sure we cover everything at the time of the reading.
What if I don't know my birth time?
I don't need your birth time in order to access psychic information for you. All I need is your full name at birth, your birth date, and sometimes, your birthplace.
What if my name is different than the name on my birth certificate?
I often do readings for people who have a different name than the name on their birth certificate. If you know the name that is on your birth certificate, we will work with both names: your name at birth and your name now. If you do not know the name on your birth certificate, we can work around that. I have worked with many clients who have had name changes (especially because of adoption), and I can always find ways to access psychic information for you.
Why do you only do readings by telephone?
I have been doing psychic readings by telephone for thousands of clients all over the world and I have found over the years that readings over the phone are purely intuitive, and are therefore more accurate as there are no physical distractions.
If I am nervous when I speak with you, will that affect my psychic reading?
No, being nervous will not affect your reading. People often feel a little nervous at the beginning of a psychic reading, especially if it is their first time, but there is nothing to be nervous about. People have told me that I put them at ease and give them peace of mind, so I suggest that you find a quiet place where you can relax and get as comfortable as possible for your session.
What if I'm afraid you are going to tell me bad things?
This is a common fear and a question that I hear all the time. I approach my work with the greatest compassion - remember, I feel what you feel, so I deliver information in a gentle, loving way. I genuinely, sincerely and profoundly care about you and your happiness, this is why I do this work. My purpose is to help people to live a happy, prosperous and fulfilling life, and to transform what is not working for them. A reading from me will always present options for you of how to work with and improve your situations so you can enjoy your life and get the most out of this lifetime. If I am guided to tell you things that you might consider "bad", it is only because you have the power to change them or work with them, so it is better for you to know about it so you can do something about it.
What methods or tools do you use to receive your psychic information?
Before I phone you, I connect with you, with your energy and with your guides. When I ask you for your birth name and birth date, I connect with the Akashic Record - the record of your soul. I receive psychic information through my gifts of clairvoyance (psychic sight), clairaudience (psychic hearing), and clairsentience (psychic feeling). I will also use Tarot cards for issues pertaining to time, and sometimes use a pendulum when working with spiritual healing.
What is the Akashic Record?
The Akashic Record is like a library on the psychic/spiritual plane that contains the record of every soul. It is as if each soul has its own book in this library, and the person's full name at birth and birth date provide access to that book (like the call numbers in a library) so that the information in it can be read. To use another analogy, the Akashic Record is like a cosmic internet where each person has their own website, and this website contains all the information about them in this life and others, past, present and future. The person's name and birth date provides the address to access this website and read the information about that person.
Your advice columns give advice of a general nature, are your readings more specific and detailed in addressing my personal situation?
My advice columns are designed to address issues in a way that could helpful to many people. Those who want to receive specific and detailed information should have a personal consultation, which will focus directly, specifically and thoroughly on you and your life in a complete way. In a personal psychic reading, I will address all aspects of your life, including health, career, relationships, money, family, life purpose, etc. as well as answering all your questions thoroughly, both from a practical as well as a spiritual perspective.
In a psychic reading, do you give clear, practical advice that I can really use?
Yes, I will outline the best choices and courses of action that you can take now and in the near future in order to achieve the results you desire. Together, we will create a practical, step-by-step plan to get you what you want most in life. I will also address the mental, emotional and spiritual elements that are hindering and supporting you to reach your goals, and we will look at what you need to do to improve these areas so you can enjoy all aspects of your life.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A PSYCHIC READING
What can I expect in a psychic reading?
A psychic reading takes about an hour. I begin by connecting with you and your energy before I call you, then I ask you for your birth date and name at birth so I can access your Akashic Record. I will test the tape before we begin to make sure it is recording properly, and then we will begin the reading. The first 20 minutes or so, I will deliver information to you that is coming through for you, usually addressing where you are in your life in the present, what your gifts and abilities are, what aspects of the past are impacting and affecting you now, and what opportunities, situations and choices are likely to present themselves in the next 6-12 months. The rest of your reading will be directed by your questions, which can be about anyone or anything. If you prefer, we can begin the reading by addressing your questions, if you let me know that at the beginning of the session. If you have a lot of questions (more than 15), please let me know at the beginning so I can make sure to cover everything for you.
Should I avoid telling you things? What information do you need from me?
You do not have to tell me anything about yourself or your life. The only information that I will ask of you at the time of your reading is your full name when you were born, your birth date, and sometimes your place of birth (I do not require your time of birth). This is usually all I need in order to access psychic information for you. I may, from time to time during the reading, ask you questions in order to get more clarity so I can give you the clearest and most accurate answers. It is best for you not to hold back information as this creates a wall of resistance that can interfere with the reading, but if there are things that you would prefer not to tell me, that is fine. The main thing is that we keep the flow of energy open so the lines of communication can be clear. It is your reading, and I want to give you the clearest and most accurate reading possible.
Will you tell me my future?
I will outline what kinds of choices, opportunities and events are coming up for you in the next 6-12 months (if you stay on your present course), and we will discuss what areas you may want to change or enhance in order for you to experience what you want. I believe that you create your own future with the choices that you make in the present, and I can help you to make the best choices so you can experience your future the way you want it to be. In essence, we are crafting your future together, instead of letting life just happen to you - I will help you to enact your power of choice, so you can take charge of your life and create the future you have always wanted.
Can you tell me about my destiny and life purpose?
Yes, I can tell you about your life purpose which can be accessed in the Akashic Record. Your destiny is really about your ultimate destination in life, and you have choice as to how, when, where, with whom, and even if, you meet your destiny. I can direct you on your true path that makes the most of your gifts, talents and abilities, and allows you to experience your greatest joy and fulfillment, which will support you to fulfill your destiny and life purpose.
Can you tell me about my past lives?
Yes. I only address past lives when I am asked to do so, or when an issue in the present is originating from another lifetime. I love working with past lives as they allow us to explore certain gifts, knowledge and abilities that can be accessed and enhanced in this lifetime. Past lives also provide answers to many things in this lifetime that cannot otherwise be explained or resolved, such as chronic issues and phobias, which almost always originate from other lives. The Akashic Record provides information about each soul's journey, through this lifetime and others. We can also explore sacred contracts, soul mates, soul groups, family dynamics, personal and professional relationships, and how you've experienced them in other lifetimes. This is a fascinating area to work with as it reveals key information and illuminates underlying issues that tend to repeat and form patterns throughout many lifetimes. Many people have found working with past lives to be healing, empowering, enlightening, and transformational.
Can you tell me who my guides are?
If your guides are willing to identify themselves, then I can speak about them if you wish.
Are you able to contact deceased loved ones?
I only work with those spirits who are on the Other Side when it is necessary for healing and completion. I am able to connect with departed spirits, however, I do not specialize in this type of mediumship. I am willing to do this type of work when there are unhealed wounds, such as in the case of suicide, loss of a child or a spouse, etc. I prefer not to work with criminal cases, missing persons, or situations involving violence or trauma because I find this to be painful and traumatic for me, as I am empathic and feel what other people feel.
Will you tell me when and where I'll meet my soul mate, and who that person will be?
I can tell you about your soul mate, and when, where and how you have the opportunities to meet, and how to open yourself to be ready for this relationship.
Should I tape the reading or take notes?
You can tape the reading yourself and/or take notes if you wish. I include a tape with your consultation that tapes both sides of our conversation. I always test the tape with you before we begin the session to make sure that it is working properly. On rare occasions psychic tapes can be known to do strange things, like having parts or entire sides of the tape seem blank, then reappear weeks or months later when one is ready to hear them. If you want to record the session yourself as well, that is fine, just do not begin recording before I call, and do not leave your machine on "pause" before I call, or my telephone call will encounter a busy signal and will not be able to get through. You can take notes during the session, just realize that it may slow your reading down, and you may not be as present with what we are talking about in the moment, so you may miss hearing some information, but you can always refer back to the tape later. Some clients transcribe the tapes so they have notes of the session.
ASKING QUESTIONS IN A PSYCHIC READING
How many questions can I ask in a psychic reading?
You can ask as many questions as you like in a reading, and your questions can be about anyone or anything. It is best to write your questions down ahead of time so we make sure that we cover everything at the time of the reading. If more questions come up during the reading, we can address those as well. Usually, we can address up to 10-12 questions in the one-hour session. If you have more than 12-15 questions, please let me know before we begin the reading so I can pace myself accordingly. It is best if you prioritize your questions so we can make sure we address the most important ones first in case we run out of time. It is my intention to make sure the reading is complete for you, so I will not cut off answering a question just because the tape stops. If you prefer, we can begin the reading by addressing your questions to make sure we cover them all.
Do I have to wait to ask my questions until you are finished delivering your information?
No, you can ask questions or interrupt me at any time. It is your reading, and I am very flexible in my work. If I get interrupted, I will come back later to complete what needed to be said. If you have questions about what I am saying, by all means, please ask them at that time. Also, if you are anxious to get to your questions right away to make sure we cover everything, then we can start with your questions if you let me know that would be preferable to you, and then I can give you any other information that I have for you at the end. We can work in any way that works for you, so please don't hold back or hesitate to ask for what you need in the moment.
What kinds of questions should I ask?
You can ask questions about anyone or anything. People ask me all kinds of questions about everything under the sun, such as: job/career, money, life purpose, gifts and abilities, guides and angels, past lives, relationships, partners/spouses, children, parents, loved ones, health, travel, business opportunities, schooling, investments and real estate, moving, buying or selling property, where to live, chronic or unresolved issues, ideal timing, exploring any blocks or obstacles, negative or limiting beliefs, underlying issues, how to create success, how to heal pain and hurt, exploring dreams, discussing paranormal phenomena, etc. It is best to write down your questions or anything that comes to mind before your appointment so that we don't miss anything.
What if I can't think of any questions?
It is not absolutely necessary that you come up with questions before the session - there is usually plenty of information that presents itself in a psychic reading, and often questions arise as we discuss various aspects of your life in the past, present and future. Often you will find that after you book your reading, questions will come to mind, so it is best to write them down so you don't forget them. Writing down questions ahead of time helps to let your guides and the Universe know what kinds of things you are ready and willing to address, but don't worry if nothing comes to mind. I have been doing this a long time, and your guides always have information for you and are thrilled to have the opportunity of having someone deliver these messages to you.
What if I only have one question, do you do readings by the minute?
No, I do not do readings that are less than an hour long because I prefer to be thorough, and to give you a complete reading so you can improve and enhance all aspects of your life. If you only have one question, of course we will address that issue specifically, in a detailed and in-depth way, but there will also be plenty of other information that will come up to make the hour worthwhile and informative.
Can I ask you about other people during my reading?
Yes, you can ask about anyone or anything. I can connect with anyone you wish, all I need is the person's first name, approximate age and location (it is even better if you can give me their full name at birth and complete birth date). However, if that person has strong defenses and is not willing to be read, I may not be able to access them, and I will let you know that. I prefer only to work with those who are living, unless there is a profound need to contact someone who has passed over in order for there to be healing and completion.
Can you tell me if my partner is cheating on me?
We can explore all aspects of a relationship, including its strengths and weaknesses. Ultimately, you must trust your own feelings and make your own choices, but I can look at what is going on with another person, what he/she is feeling, thinking, and doing. This is not my favorite type of question, but I am willing to address it and look at the health and well being of the relationship as a whole, what it needs in order for there to be healing and trust, and whether healing can occur or not.
Can you help me find lost or missing items, or pets?
This is not my area of expertise, and you may find it helpful to use a tool such as a pendulum to answer these types of questions, and to locate lost or missing things.
What if you can't answer my question?
If I am not receiving an answer immediately, I will ask for clarification, or ask you to rephrase the question. In the rare event that I cannot answer your question for any reason, I will tell you, because I can only give you the information that I am receiving. I will usually try to approach the question from several different angles, or come back to it later. I always do my very best to provide you with clear and accurate answers to all your questions, unless for some reason, I am not permitted to do so.
What if I forgot to ask a question in my reading?
It is best to write your questions down ahead of time so that your reading is complete at the time of the session, as I am not able to address questions afterwards.
Do you do short follow-up readings?
On occasion, I am willing to book half-hour follow-up sessions within 6 weeks of your reading to cover anything that comes to your mind after your session, or any new developments and plans of action that arise as a result of the reading.
PARTICULARS ABOUT TELEPHONE READINGS
Do I call you or do you call me?
I will call you at the time of our appointment. I may call a few minutes late if the session before yours has run overtime, but I most certainly will call you within 10-15 minutes of our appointed time.
How can you do readings over the phone?
I connect with your energy and with your guides, and I access what is known as the Akashic Record, which is the record of your soul's journey through this life and others. I spend the first few minutes connecting with you and giving you information about what is going on in your life presently to make sure that we are on the same wavelength and that I am reading you accurately. I can feel what you are feeling (but I am not reading your mind). I am able to connect with you wherever you are, and to access information about your past, present and future.
Is it okay to use a speakerphone?
A speakerphone does not produce the best quality recording for the tape of your reading, and it can interfere with my ability to fully connect with you. In essence, a speakerphone creates distance and lacks intimacy. A high quality land line is best, but a good quality headset is usually okay.
Can I be on my cell phone for the reading?
Cell phones do not offer the best reception, and may not produce a good quality recording for the tape. I also find that there are times when I cannot connect as well through a cell phone, but I have done readings over cell phones when absolutely necessary. To get the most out of your reading, it is best to be on a land line (choose the best quality phone available - not a speakerphone) in a quiet space where you can have privacy for the hour of our session.
Can I be doing other things while you are talking?
You will get the best results in a reading if you are in a quiet place where you can relax, without background noise or music, so we can both stay focused on the reading. If you are doing other things at the same time, it will be distracting for both of us.
Can I have someone else listen in on another telephone, or on speakerphone?
I prefer not to do readings by speakerphone as it creates a weaker, less clear connection. Having someone else on the phone can be distracting, and their energy can interfere with you receiving an accurate reading. You can always discuss your reading with someone else afterwards, if you like, or you can share your tape with them - keep in mind that a reading can be very personal, so you may want to wait until after the reading before you offer to have them listen to your tape. I can do readings for two people together, but the reading will focus on the relationship between both parties, as well as where both people are heading in their lives together (see relationship readings).
What happens if we get interrupted or cut off in the middle of a reading?
If someone interrupts you, I will pause the tape until you have privacy once again - it is always best to try to find a time and place where you can be alone. Please do not answer other calls while we are in session. If we are cut off or disconnected during the session, I will pause the tape and call you back. I will keep calling until I reach you. Please make sure to hang up your phone or I will not be able to get through to you. (Also, if you are recording on your end, please make sure not to have your recording device on "pause" which engages the phone, or it will block me from being able to call you back.)
What if I do not accept calls from private numbers?
I can unblock my telephone, in which case your Caller I.D. will show "Grace Associates" when I initially call you to book the appointment. When I call you for the appointment itself, I call from a private office on a different phone number, so please pick up the call at the appointed time, even if you do not recognize the name or number (sometimes this may even show up as a local number for you).
If I can't make long distance phone calls, how can we do a reading by telephone?
I call you for the reading, so you don't have to make the long distance phone call, and I pay the long distance phone charges anywhere in North America.
Do you do readings by email?
No, I prefer to do readings by telephone as it is a much closer and more intimate connection. If email is the only way I can connect with you, however, then we can work out some way of doing a reading by email, but you would have to send me all of your questions ahead of time, and there would be no emails back and forth to address further questions and issues, so email is a much more restrictive way of doing a reading. I do readings for people all over the world by telephone, even in the most remote places, so it is best if we can work together in person by phone, if at all possible.
Do you ever do consultations in person?
The only consultations that I offer in person are Crystal Healing Sessions, which take 2 hours. Crystal Healings are very profound, and go to the heart and root of any issue, facilitating healing and transformation on all levels. Appointments for Crystal Healings can be made by special request.
COMMON CONCERNS AND MISCONCEPTIONS
What if there are things that I don't want you to know?
I will not pry into areas that you don't want me to know about, and I will ask your permission before I discuss things that are of a highly personal nature. Often people feel safe enough to discuss things with me that they have never told anyone, and anything we discuss in your reading is completely confidential.
Does skepticism interfere with a reading?
A certain degree of skepticism is healthy, and is a form of discernment to assess and determine what is true and right for you. However, if the skepticism is really strong, it creates a wall that I must scale before I can access the information you are seeking. This wastes a lot of time and energy. You will get the best results from your reading if you are simply willing to receive the truth, allowing me to access this information for you. I have turned many skeptics into believers, however, after over fourteen years, I know the value of my work and I am not out to prove myself or my gifts to anyone. I have helped thousands of people around the world to live a more joyful and fulfilling life. Feel free to read the pages of testimonials I have received from clients over the years - most of my clients come from referrals.
What if you see something bad in my future?
The future is not set in stone. The choices you make now influence and affect your future. This is the power of having a reading. A reading can help you to enhance the things that you want to experience, and change those things that you want to change. Knowledge is power, and knowing ahead of time what is likely to occur gives you the power to work with it or change it. I will not deliver information to you in a way that frightens you, but if I receive a warning for you, I will tell you so you can do something about it. Forewarned is forearmed. My intention in doing readings is to empower you to enjoy your life, and to get the most out of this lifetime. If I see obstacles on your path, we will explore how you can heal them, overcome them, work with them, or at least, work around them.
What if I'm afraid of what you are going to say?
Many people get nervous before a reading, and that is perfectly natural, but completely unnecessary. I assure you that I deliver information to you in a loving, gentle and compassionate way. I care about your happiness, and I feel what you are feeling. I will not "candy coat" the information I give you, I will "tell it like it is", but I will always give it to you in a way that empowers you. I want to help you to create joy in your life, and to heal and clear the obstacles on your path. I will tell you what you need to know in order to be happy, healthy, safe and prosperous. This is my mission, my purpose, and my promise to you. The reason that I do this work is to help people to have joy and fulfillment in their lives, and the information that comes through for you is intended to facilitate your life, not to frighten you. Please, just relax and don't worry. I do my work from the heart, and you are safe with me, I assure you. You may feel more at ease by reading testimonials from my clients.
What if I don't want to know about death?
I do not usually address death in readings unless I am specifically asked to. A reading is meant to be empowering, and I will only be given information for you that is for your highest and best good, and for the highest and best good of all concerned. My readings focus on how you can get the most out of your life. Of course, if there are things that you need to change in order to live longer and better, we will most certainly address those issues from that standpoint. Also, if I am given a strong warning about a particular time, place, person or event, I am compelled to give that to you, but I will deliver it in a way that gives you information you can work with, not in a way that is meant to frighten you. You always have choice in life, even in death, and the power of a reading is that it can support you to make the best choices for yourself and for your life.
Are you a fortune-teller?
No, I am not a fortune-teller. A fortune-teller often makes vague predictions about your future, and about who you are going to meet and marry, or what your lucky numbers are, etc. My readings are about helping you to create joy, prosperity, love and fulfillment in every part of your life. My goal is to inspire you to live your passion, and to express your gifts in the most joyful, effective and empowering ways. Clients call my readings enlightening and transformational, and this is the service that I am committed to providing in a reading. I approach my readings with humor and compassion, and they are fun and enjoyable, but I do not do readings simply for entertainment. My intention is to give you the tools and information that will help you to live your best life possible.
Will you give me the winning lottery numbers?
I can tell you how to truly win the jackpot in your life by creating your own success and fortune using your own gifts and abilities. I can help you to become a magnet for money and success in all ways, including being a winner, by enhancing your own power of attraction, and your own ability to create whatever you choose. I offer strategies of how you can win in all areas of your life, but I do not usually offer lottery numbers.
Can you help me change my bad luck?
Yes, bad luck is about energy, and can be occurring for a number of reasons. We can discover what is the source of that bad luck, and whether it originates in this lifetime or others. We can shift the energy, emotions, thoughts and beliefs that are perpetuating it so you can experience prosperity, joy and good fortune in your life.
Are you able to read my mind and tell what I am thinking?
I am not reading your mind when I am doing a reading for you, but I am able to feel what you are feeling, and I will address which of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs are impacting and affecting your life. However, you do not have to worry about me prying into your thoughts, or accessing things that you don't want me to know about - I respect your privacy, and will ask your permission before I address things of a sensitive nature.
Will you tell me when and how I'm going to die?
No, I will not tell you about your death, or about the death of those close to you. Death is a choice, and fear of death often limits life. My focus in my work is on how you can live your life to the fullest and get the most out of this lifetime. I will tell you if there are things that you need to change to support you to live well, and I will also tell you if there are times when you need to pay more attention or be more cautious in order to keep you safe. Knowledge is power, and knowing ahead of time gives you the power to change and to enhance your life.
I have had some bad experiences with psychics in the past. What happens if I'm not happy with my reading?
If I am not able to connect with you to your satisfaction within the first ten minutes of our reading, then we will stop and I will not charge you for it. However, I ask you to be open in the first few minutes to give me a chance to really connect with you. If you are focused on testing me, this skepticism creates a wall of energy that is difficult and draining to penetrate and overcome. A reading requires co-operation between us so we can fully connect in order for me to access the information you desire. I want to help you, but I need you to give me permission to do that.
Another psychic told me I have a curse. Can you tell me if this is true?
This is rarely true, but if it is, we can clear it. There are many fraudulent "psychics" who frighten people in order to make them dependent on them, and in order to keep charging them more money. They will often tell people that they have been cursed, and that for "X" number of dollars, they can remove this curse. This is usually a scam, so don't be fooled or let yourself and your life be hurt or influenced by it.
I've had bad readings from other psychics that scared me, how do I know I can trust you?
I have had many clients tell me that they are so glad they found me because they had bad readings in the past from other psychics and were relieved to find that I was genuine, caring and sincere. In my readings, I focus on how you can enjoy your life and get the most out of this lifetime. I have helped many clients heal and overcome fears that were planted by other "psychics". I really care about people, and I care about you and your happiness. Please read the pages of testimonials that I have received from my clients so you can rest assured of the quality of my work.
What if things do not happen as you said they would?
My clients tell me that my accuracy rate is better than 90%, but sometimes things can take a little longer to manifest than originally anticipated, especially if fear is involved. It is important to remember that the future is based on probability and is not set in stone - those probabilities are based on your energy and your life path at the time of the reading. The choices that you make at any point along the path can change the future. If you follow the steps that we discuss in the reading, then the outcome should unfold as we expect it will, but you are ultimately in the driver's seat of your life, and you choose the course of your own journey.
PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY
Are the things we discuss in a reading kept private and confidential?
YES, ABSOLUTELY. Everything that we discuss is kept completely private and confidential - this is an essential aspect of my work, and I am committed to serving you with the utmost respect and integrity.
What if I don't want anyone else to know I'm having a reading?
When I call you, your call display will read "private caller" and I will not leave a message for you unless you tell me to. When I call you for your appointment, it is best if you can find a quiet, private place for the hour that we are on the phone. It is best if I can call you on a land-line. In some cases, I have phoned clients at other people's houses, and sent their tapes to a friend. If absolutely necessary, I could call you on your cell phone in your car, or some other quiet place where you can have privacy. Please let me know if this is an issue when you book your appointment so I can pay special attention to maintaining your privacy and discretion.
Why do your calls say "private caller" on my Caller I.D.?
In my work, it is important that I offer privacy and discretion for those who do not want others to know they have called me. For this reason also, I do not leave a message unless I am instructed to do so.
OTHER SERVICES AND CONSULTATIONS:
What's the difference between a psychic reading and a spiritual healing?
A psychic reading will cover all aspects of your life, including health, wealth, career, relationships, etc., and will address what is going in the present and what is likely to occur over the next 6-12months. A spiritual healing will address a specific area in your life, such a health, relationships, issues with success or failure, chronic pain, phobias or repeating patterns, and will focus on discovering and healing the underlying issues, emotions and belief systems in order to facilitate joy and transformation. We can address some degree of spiritual healing in a psychic reading, but if you want to really heal and transform a particular issue or area of your life, then a spiritual healing will be a life-changing experience for you.
I have chronic issues that no one can explain or solve. Can you help me?
Absolutely. I can help you fully explore the underlying causes of chronic issues, and where they originate from. Once we understand what is behind them, and what kinds of thoughts, beliefs, emotions and experiences have created and supported them, then we can activate the process of healing and transformation. Knowledge is power, and once you know what is truly causing your experience, you have the power to change it. This is true of fears, phobias, repeating patterns, chronic pain and illness, etc. Everything is first created on the spiritual, mental and emotional levels before it manifests in our physical lives, so if we heal and transform it on the spiritual, mental and emotional planes, then it will heal and transform on the physical plane as well. This type of work can be done very effectively in a spiritual healing session by focusing on a specific issue.
Do you do readings for couples?
Yes, I have done sessions for couples for many years. In fact, my very first clients were a couple on the verge of a divorce who told me that I saved their marriage. However, a couples reading does not have to focus on relationship problems. We will address all aspects of the relationship, including its strengths and weaknesses, and how each person can best love and support the other. We will also address key issues that affect both parties in the relationship, which include home, career choices, money, investments, taking the next steps, etc. If the relationship is having difficulties, as all relationships do from time to time (such is the nature of life and love that our relationships often offer us our greatest opportunities to learn and grow by offering us our greatest challenges), then we will address what the underlying issues are and how they can be healed. I believe in love - I have been happily married for over 15 years, and I enjoy helping others to experience profound peace, love and joy in their own relationships.
Do you do readings for two people at one time?
Yes, when I do readings for two people at once, the reading will focus on the relationship between both people. We can address all types of relationships, such as friends, siblings, parent/child, etc., at any stage of the relationship. I have done readings for friends who want to know about their past-life connections. I can also do readings for siblings, or for a parent and child, addressing family dynamics, roles, and the best way to communicate and heal old wounds, as well as how to support one another to be happy.
Do you offer psychic business consultations?
Yes, I offer practical guidance on how you can meet your goals and objectives for yourself and for your business. We will fully explore all business opportunities, including new streams of income, and new marketing ideas and concepts. We will discuss how to best reach your customer, and how to bring out the best in your team. We will discover how to improve any weak areas, and how to fully enhance the strengths of the business and of all those concerned. I have helped many businesses to greatly increase their success, and I would be delighted to help your business to grow and thrive as well.
Do you offer business advice within a regular psychic reading?
Yes, if you have questions relating to business, of course I will be happy to answer them during the course of a psychic reading.
What is the difference between a Business Consultation and the business advice you would offer in a personal psychic reading?
In a personal psychic reading, we will address all aspects of your life, including career and business. In a business consultation, we will focus on the business itself - in essence, it is a psychic reading for the business entity, because businesses also have their own life path, their own purpose and destiny, and their own energy. We will focus on all aspects of the business, including marketing, personnel, strategic planning, setting and meeting goals, etc. A business consultation can include several people at once on a conference call, while a personal psychic reading is just for one person.
FEES & PAYMENT
How do I pay you?
All fees are in U.S. funds (Canadian residents can pay by cheque in Canadian dollars at par + GST)
PAYMENT MUST ARRIVE BEFORE THE APPOINTMENT, OR WE WILL HAVE TO RESCHEDULE, HOWEVER, I DO NOT CASH CHECKS UNTIL AFTER THE SESSION.
How much do you charge?
All of my private consultations are one hour long, are specific, detailed and thorough in covering all aspects of your life situation. I include a tape of the session because I provide a lot of information, and clients find it helpful to refer back to the tapes, even years later (I often have clients call me after they've listened to a tape from several years ago to tell me how amazed they are that everything I told them had unfolded as I said it would, or that listening to the tapes again reminded them of important things that they had forgotten, or hadn't really heard at the time). I phone you for the session, and long distance charges are included within North America. My fees are as follows: $200 for a one-hour psychic reading; $200 for a one-hour spiritual healing; $250 for a one-hour relationship consultation; $300 per hour of business consulting. (All fees are in U.S. dollars, Canadian residents can pay in Canadian dollars at par + GST).
Do your fees include all charges, including the long distance phone call?
My fees include a tape and mailing that tape to you, as well as long distance phone charges within North America.
Do you offer readings by the minute?
No, I do not offer readings by the minute as this does not offer a complete or accurate picture of all aspects relating to your situation. My readings are thorough, specific and detailed. In my hour-long consultations, you will receive information that can change and enhance your entire life.
Why do you charge so much?
I have been a professional psychic for over 15 years, offering guidance to people around the world. My clients call me "Amazing Grace" because of my accuracy and the valuable insight that I offer them. My readings have been called enlightening and transformational, and I honor the value of my work. There are psychics who charge much more who may or may not be worth it, and "psychics" who charge much less who probably aren't worth it - in life, you often get what you pay for. Psychics who charge by the minute are often trained by the companies that they work for to do readings from a script, and to keep talking as much and as long as possible so they rack up your charges. Many of these "by-the-minute-psychics" usually charge from $2.99 to $3.99 to even $4.99 per minute - that's $180, $240 or up to $300 per hour for someone who may not even be a genuine psychic! I have had many clients come to me who have had bad readings from other psychics; they were relieved to find that I am the real thing, and truly genuine, sincere, caring and compassionate in my work. Please read the pages of testimonials from my clients which attest to the value of my work and how much I've helped them. Many of my clients have told me that the information that I've given them is priceless, and they want to pay me even more!
Aren't you supposed to do this kind of work for free in service to God?
I do my work in service to God. The Divine Source is who I work with to help people to change and transform their lives so they can experience true joy and fulfillment, and carry out their life purpose. My greatest gratification comes when I help those who help others. This work is my Calling, it is what I was meant to do in order to fulfill my sacred contract and my life purpose. God has given me great gifts, and I am happy to share these gifts to help others, and God wants us all to be happy and prosper so we can support others to do the same. Doctors and surgeons work in service to God with their God-given gifts, but we don't expect them to do their work for free, unless they choose to. There are circumstances where I offer my gifts without payment, but I have found that people often receive more from a reading when they pay for it, because this honors and respects their own worth and value. One of the reasons that I offer my free advice column and answer questions for free on my website is to give back and share my gifts with more people. This is my gift to you in gratitude and appreciation for God's gifts to me.
How do I book an appointment?
You can click on "book an appointment" on my website and fill out the form, indicating which type of consultation you would like, and the best time for me to call you in order to book the appointment. I will try to call you within the times that you specify as being the best times to reach you, and we will then schedule an appointment as soon as possible. My schedule can get very busy, so it may take a few days before I can call you directly. I will not leave a message for you, unless you tell me to. Once an appointment is scheduled, please send a check made
How soon can I get a psychic reading?
It depends, usually it takes about 2 to 3 weeks from the time we book your appointment, but it can take longer at certain times, and at other times there may be less of a wait. I will try to phone you as soon as possible to book your reading. Please specify the best times to reach you so I can connect with you directly to schedule your appointment.
Can I get a reading right away?
Usually I have a waiting list of two to three weeks. On the rare occasion that I have a cancellation, I may be able to schedule an appointment sooner than that.
Do you ever have cancellations?
I ask for a minimum of 24 hours notice for canceling or changing appointments, so every now and then I do get cancellations.
CHANGING, CANCELLING OR BEING LATE
FOR AN APPOINTMENT
What if I have to cancel my appointment?
If you need to change, reschedule or cancel your appointment. please send me an email with at least 24 hours notice. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my website at www.askgrace.com and click "contact me".
What if I don't get home in time and I'm late for our appointment?
If I do not hear from you, I will try to call you for fifteen minutes, after which time the appointment will be forfeited. Your reading time may be reduced by the amount of time you are late if I have appointments following yours. If I have your cell phone number, I will try to reach you on your cell phone. There have been occasions where I have begun sessions on a cell phone while my client is driving home, and then phoned them on their land line once they reach home - this is an acceptable option if there is no way for you to get home in time for our appointment.
What if I need to change my appointment?
Please let me know as soon as possible so I have the opportunity to try to rebook the session for someone else who is waiting (you can leave a message at any time of day or night). I do not cash your check until after the session, in case you need to change your appointment. If you call with less than 24 hours notice and it is an emergency, then of course, I understand that and we will reschedule your appointment. If you miss your appointment without calling at all, I will usually not rebook an appointment for you, so please leave a message for me if you need to change your appointment for any reason - I really appreciate it.
What if I miss my appointment?
I ask for at least 24 hours notice of a change or cancellation of an appointment. Of course, I understand if there is an emergency, but please leave a message for me to let me know before the time of the reading. If appointments are missed without a message and without a good reason, I will usually not reschedule them.
Are you ever late for an appointment?
Yes, if the session before yours has run overtime, then I will be a few minutes late for your reading as I tune into you and your energy before I call you. I will most definitely call you, so please be patient. You will still receive a full one-hour session even if I am late.
Do you ever cancel appointments?
I will not cancel appointments unless it is absolutely necessary for me to do so, in the case of an emergency or if I am not well. I will only work when I am 100% clear, so if I have a head cold or a sore throat, I will not be at my best, nor will I be able to give my best, so I will reschedule that appointment as soon as I am well again.
How can I reach you?
You can reach me by email at email@example.com, by clicking "contact me" on my website at www.AskGrace.com. Please be patient as it may take several days before I can get back to you.
CLASSES, GROUPS AND LECTURES
Do you teach classes?
I teach intuitive development classes, which include In-Lightning Intuition, Intuitive Tarot, and Advanced Intuition: Energy and Healing. I also give workshops, teach classes, and do lectures on a variety of topics from time to time.(If you would like to put a group together for a class, workshop or lecture, I can arrange to come to you.)
Are you available to speak to groups?
Yes, I can speak to groups on a variety of topics, and I will be happy to tailor an event to fit the needs of your group. Please email so we can discuss details and options.
What kind of lectures do you do?
I lecture on a variety of topics dealing with all aspects of life, self-improvement, as well as psychic and spiritual topics. Some of my previous lectures are available on audiocassette or CD.
Do you do psychic readings at parties?
No, I have not done psychic readings at parties for over a decade. The information that I provide is very specific and personal, and we will cover all aspects of your life. Although my readings are often filled with humor and are enjoyable, they are not suitable for a party atmosphere as you would not get the most out of the reading under those circumstances. It is better to give yourself the gift of a personal reading in a complete and private way so you can receive all the benefits on all levels.
LEARNING TO DEVELOP INTUITION
People tell me I'm very intuitive, could I be psychic?
Everyone has intuition and psychic abilities in one form or another, and to varying degrees. Your intuitive gifts are obviously powerful enough for others to notice them, and it is good that you are aware of them also. The key with intuition, as with many things, is that it improves and becomes stronger the more you use it. It is important that you trust yourself and what you feel and know to be true.
How can I access and improve my own intuition and psychic abilities?
I offer a meditation tape, "The Magic of Intuition" that guides you to access your own intuition in just 5 minutes. This is the meditation that I use every day to attune to the highest guidance in my own psychic work, which also includes a powerful visualization for psychic protection.
Do you teach others to develop their own intuition and psychic abilities?
From time to time, I offer Intuitive development classes that can help you to fully access, develop, direct and enhance your intuition so you can use it to benefit yourself and others. In these classes, I teach the tools and techniques that I learned that allowed me to fully develop my own psychic abilities.
What does it take to become a professional psychic?
In order to be a professional psychic, you must have powerful psychic gifts, a great desire to help people, and a commitment to honesty, integrity and professionalism. Unfortunately, there are many "psychics" out there who have questionable abilities, and who are only in this work for the money. Some telephone psychics have been taught to do readings from a script!!! This is especially true of many psychics who charge by the minute, who are encouraged to keep talking so that the minutes and charges add up. If you are truly interested in becoming a professional psychic, I can teach you and train you, as I have for several of my students who have gone on to help others as professional psychics. I offer classes in Intuition, Advanced Intuition, and personal mentoring to become a professional intuitive.
ABOUT "YOUR ANSWERS FOR LIFE"
ADVICE COLUMN AND NEWSLETTER
Why do you answer questions for free in your advice column?
In over fourteen years of doing readings, I have found that many people are dealing with similar issues. I wanted to be able to reach out and help more people than I can do on a one-to-one basis, so I decided that I would offer a free advice column as a way to give back for all the gifts I have been blessed with, and to share these gifts with many people. I enjoy helping others, and I enjoy writing, so I was inspired to share my gifts in this way.
When I read your newsletter, sometimes I click "read on" and I reach a completely different column, why is that?
The newsletter will always take you to the current column that is on my website this week. If you clicked through to another column, it is probably because you were reading an older newsletter, and that column can usually be found for a few weeks under "recent advice columns". New columns and newsletters are posted every Monday, so if you read the newsletter before the next Monday, it should take you to the current column to continue reading.
What is different about your newsletter than if I just go to your website every week?
The newsletter contains special features that do not appear on my website, such as a special "What's Happening" section that addresses what is going on in the world from a psychic perspective, and tips on what you can do for yourself. The newsletter also contains special offers available only to subscribers. Receiving the newsletter will ensure that you are the first to be notified when a new column is posted, so you never miss "Your Answers for Life". (see sample newsletter)
What kinds of questions will you answer for free?
I answer questions that will be helpful to many people, so I usually won't answer questions that are too personal and would be better addressed in a personal psychic reading. I try to cover questions that fit into one of the following categories on a rotating basis:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Relationships on all levels
- Psychic and Spiritual topics
- Global/Philosophical/Societal issues
Do you email me the answer to my question?
No, I do not send a direct email to you, but if you subscribe to my newsletter, you will receive notification of which question is being answered in that week's column. I receive many questions, so it may take a while before I can answer your question in a column on that topic.
Do you share my email information with others?
No, your email information is kept strictly confidential, and will not be shared with anyone, ever.
How often will I receive emails from you?
You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org once per week on Mondays with the subject line: "Your Answers for Life". You will only receive other emails from me on occasion if you request them by indicating your specific interest categories when you subscribe. You can change your interest categories, or unsubscribe anytime.
What if I signed up for your free newsletter but I have not received it?
Emails are sent out every Monday. If you have not been receiving my email newsletter, it is likely that it is being blocked by your spam filter, or by your server. Most often, you can fix this problem by adding email@example.com to your email address book.
Why should I subscribe to your newsletter?
By subscribing to my newsletter, you will receive notification of when new columns are posted, and you will also receive discounts and special offers available only to subscribers. You will be notified of upcoming events in the newsletter before the general public, and the newsletter contains a special "What's Happening" section that addresses what is going on in the world from a psychic perspective, and tips on what you can do for yourself. This information is accessible only for subscribers and does not appear anywhere else on my website.
See a sample of my newsletter.
How can I unsubscribe?
If you wish to unsubscribe at any time, it is very easy. Simply scroll down to the very bottom of my newsletter and click "unsubscribe". This will permanently remove you from my email list, and you will not receive any emails from me in the future.
Why don't you address current world events in your advice column?
I will address current world events in my column if someone asks me about them, but I can only address questions that I receive from people for my advice column. If you would like to see me address certain topics, please submit your question. I do address current world events in my weekly newsletter in the "What's Happening" section that is accessible only to subscribers and does not appear on my website.
I read a column in your archive a while ago but I don't see it now, how can I find it?
Only 8 columns at a time are kept in the recent advice columns archive, usually for a few weeks only, and then they are removed from my website. A full inventory of archived columns is available only to the media and for syndication.
I asked a question a while ago, why haven't you answered it?
I receive many questions, and it can take a while before I can answer certain questions in an appropriate column on that topic. If your question would be helpful to others and was not too personal, I will most likely address it in an upcoming column, so keep checking my website - or subscribe to my newsletter to be notified of which questions are being answered in this week's column.
What qualifies you to give advice?
I have been answering people's questions on every conceivable topic for over fourteen years as a professional psychic. In that time, my clients have called my advice "enlightening" and "transformational". I have been given gifts that allow me to access the highest source of information of all kinds, and it is my Calling to share these gifts in order to help as many people as possible.
Your columns give advice of a general nature, are your readings more specific and detailed in addressing my personal situation?
My advice columns are designed to address issues in a way that could be helpful to many people. Those who want to receive specific and detailed information should have a personal consultation, which will focus directly, specifically and thoroughly on you and your life in a complete way. In a personal psychic reading, I will address all aspects of your life, including health, career, relationships, money, family, life purpose, etc. as well as answering all your questions thoroughly, both from a practical as well as a spiritual perspective.
