Gayle, Age 7



A NOTE TO YOU FROM ME



Gayle I am an international Spiritual Teacher, Psychic, Life Coach, Medium, and Channel.

I am respected and known for my accuracy, detailed information, integrity, compassion, and sensitivity. Since 1998, I have worked with people all over the world.

My teachings, readings, classes, writing, and talks are universal. They go beyond religious boundaries. I do not represent the beliefs of any one religion, spiritual movement, or teacher. I try to be respectful and inclusive of all loving and compassionate faiths, cultures, and backgrounds.

I do my best to live and grow as my Soul or Higher Self, to be the most I can be, to co-create an extraordinary life in partnership with Spirit, to help others, and to live what I teach.



I live in Cary, North Carolina with my wonderful husband and sweet kitty.

I am originally from Ohio. I have also lived in Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.

I have travelled quite a bit to the Caribbean, Mexico, Argentina, Turkey, England, Canada, and Italy, among other places. I enjoy helping people from all over the world via telephone and Skype.

If this is your first time having a reading, you can feel safe and comfortable with me. I love helping people have a great first experience!

I really like helping people with my work and deepening my connection with Spirit. I also enjoy writing, dining out, travelling, choir, dancing, art, shopping, meeting new people, exploring, and nature walks.

Although I have had my share of challenges, difficulties, and tragedy, my life has been very good in many ways. I feel blessed and am thankful for having a family who loves me and devoted parents. I went to good schools and grew up in a caring, safe small town and had lots of fun journeys along the way.

I was fortunate to be selected to travel in the international singing and dance group, "Up With People" for a year after graduating from high school to help promote cultural understanding among nations. After college, I worked on board a major cruise line as a cruise staff member for several years. I have been happily married and with my loving husband for over twenty years now.



star Like everyone, my life has also been filled with difficulties that have caused me to be lonely, afraid, sad, angry, confused, misunderstood, and hurt.

Some of my challenges include losing a brother to suicide, overcoming a severe illness, divorce, frequent and severe migraines, perimenopause and menopause difficulties, moving by myself to an unfamiliar city four times to setup work and residence, growing up in a family that doesn't understand or relate to my gifts and spiritual interests, providing for my own financial needs since college, spending more than twenty years studying, developing, and understanding my spiritual gifts, in addition to establishing and operating my own a successful, rewarding spiritual business helping others.



Because of all these experiences, I understand my clients, students, and readers and they often relate to me. I desire to love, enjoy, learn, grow, prosper, uplift, inspire, educate, and help heal through my work and my life. I aspire to live as my Higher Self or Soul in partnership with Spirit and to help others do the same so that we may be the most we can be, live an exceptional life, help others, and create Heaven on earth.

This is a condensed version of my autobiography. I hope you enjoy it and I hope it helps you on your own journey of personal and spiritual growth.

In this, you will learn how I developed my gifts.

Enjoy my conversations with Spirit Guides, using the Ouija Board, working on a cruise line, channeling Spirit, the fun music videos, personal photos, and more!

Also enjoy reading about how I met Donny Osmond, Davy Jones, David Cassidy, Shirley Jones, Florence Henderson, Phyllis Diller, and Robert Goulet. It's fun!

SPEAKING TO MY SPIRIT GUIDE



Many people often ask me how long I've been doing this. The answer is, my whole life. My earliest memory of communicating with Spirit is around age 7 when I remember speaking to my Spirit Guide with my younger brother Greg who was age 5 in our bedroom at night.

(Check out the cute photo below of my brother Greg and me waiting for someone to turn on the TV in front of us. Hmmm, I wonder if the TV show Bewitched was coming on? I sure hope so. I loved that program!)

During my formative years, there were a lot of new TV shows about magic, ghosts, and fantasy. These TV shows had a big influence on me. I enjoyed them all such as Bewitched, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, Nanny and the Professor, The Flying Nun, I Dream of Jeannie, The Munsters, The Addams Family, The Twilight Zone, Star Trek, The Jetsons, and Lost in Space.



gayleandgreg After dinner, my brother Greg and I would sit in the dark on the floor of our bedroom and wait for Mr. Frog to come. (Mr. Frog was the name I gave to my Spirit Guides. Hey, what do you expect? I was only 7 years old.)

When I felt the presence of my Spirit Guide in the room, I would tell my brother that Mr. Frog was here. Greg would ask me, "Gayle, what is Mr. Frog saying?"

At age 7, I would consciously channel messages to my brother from my Spirit Guides.

Today, when I give readings, a lot of the guidance and information I share with people comes from Spirit Guides and the Universe in the same way as it did when I was 7 years old. It's positive, loving, empowering, and natural.



Be comforted in knowing that your Soul, the Universe, Spirit Guides, Angels, and I want to help you through every situation with love, joy, health, prosperity, peace, and understanding. Our sincere desire is for your happiness, healing, and personal growth.

Before we go any further about some of my psychic, mediumship, and channeling experiences growing up and how my gifts unfolded, let first me tell you more about myself so you can get to know me and see that I'm just a normal person from a normal upbringing.

I'm probably very similar to you in many ways. My story may be unique, but we're more alike than different as you'll soon find out.

We all have psychic abilities to varying degrees. Yes, you are psychic! With education, awareness, willingness, and practice, you can develop your psychic abilities further.

For more information on your psychic abilities, please see my article: YOUR PSYCHIC IMPRESSIONS.

LIFE IN OHIO



I am the oldest of four children. I grew up in Perrysburg, Ohio a small, rural, middle-class suburb of Toledo.

My father was a corporate executive and my mother was a stay at home housewife. I was a very playful, bright, dreamy, deep thinking, imaginative, artistic, creative, empathic, and psychically sensitive child. I had a normal, happy childhood and very loving, attentive parents, friendly neighbors, and caring teachers.

Perrysburg, Ohio was a great place to grow up. It was safe, friendly, and clean. There were farm fields around us. When we weren't in school, summers were spent on our bikes, at the town pool, enjoying cookouts, and sitting on the porch or on a swing. Winters were spent on sleds, ice skating, shoveling snow, drinking hot chocolate, and making snow angels.

In Perrysburg, when I was growing up during the 1960's, few people were divorced and teachers were also usually your parents' friends or neighbors down the street. Your friends in kindergarten were still your classmates senior year. In Perrysburg, in the 1960's, you really could borrow some sugar from your next door neighbor or stop by their house anytime to chat about anything or nothing over a cup of coffee.



purpleflowers In the 1960's, when I lived in Perrysburg, Ohio, you knew the paper boy's name, man had just walked on the moon for the first time, and the Carol Burnett Show was on TV.

There were block parties, sleepovers, Boy Scout pancake breakfasts, backyard carnivals, garage sales, street parades with miniature red Shriner cars with adult men doing figure 8's in the road (our dentist was one of them) and clowns on stilts with big noses throwing candy to little kids sitting on the street curb during the Memorial Day town parade. There was very little sunscreen and everybody loved high fructose corn syrup.

I know it wasn't always perfect, but sometimes, I miss those growing up years in Perrysburg, Ohio. It was a different time, a slower pace. It was truly an idyllic life in many ways. It was the 1960's. I can't believe how long ago that was and yet it seems like only yesterday and the crazy thing is time just keeps going by faster and faster the older I get. Is that true for you too?



Every generation will reminisce and have their version of the good ole' days. Don't get me wrong; I'm enjoying today also. I love spandex, Starbucks, Oprah, and my new Honda Civic. I guess I'm just feeling a little nostalgic as I'm talking with you about my youth. (Sigh!) Thanks for listening.

Here's an interesting story from my childhood. When my brother Greg was age 5, during dinner time he would often enthusiastically talk about all the wonderful things he did during the day with "Beh Beh" (his invisible friend - also known as his Spirit Guide).

One evening at dinner, Greg was unusually quiet. My parents asked him what was wrong. Greg said with great sadness, "Beh Beh moved today."

From that point on, Greg never spoke of Beh Beh ever again.




MY FAMILY & MESSAGES FROM HEAVEN



My parents raised us to live a life with honesty, kindness, compassion, integrity, good morals, and personal values. (Check out the fun family photo below circa 1966!) I grew up Methodist, but we didn't go to church much as it was difficult to get 4 kids ready on a Sunday morning. More often, we opted for watching Davey and Goliath on TV which was a program that taught children lessons and values. Now let me briefly tell you about my parents and how I first got interested in life after death because of my family.

My dad was valedictorian of his high school and graduated cum laude in college. My grandfather, whom we called, Pop Pop, was an electrical engineer for an electric company in New Jersey. He passed into the world of Spirit when I was 13-years-old. We were close and I have had numerous connections with him from the Other Side.

My dad's family was very bright, focused on higher education, and from the east coast. They were very logical, grounded, intellectual, well traveled, and well-read, family-oriented people who appreciated and enjoyed some of the finer things in life. My dad's parents enjoyed going into New York City to watch Broadway shows from time to time and often drove out to Ohio to see us.

Unfortunately, my dad's younger brother and only sibling, Jim, died in a tragic car accident at 19 years of age. My Uncle Jim was a freshman in college. He had just been home for a visit and was heading back to college with a friend on a rainy night when a semi-trailer truck collided with them. He died instantly. Naturally, my dad's mom, who we called Mama Lou, was profoundly hurt by his passing. I was 1-year-old at the time.

My Uncle Jim loved being an uncle. In a Psychic Mediumship Reading I got as an adult, he came through saying he wanted to thank me for being one of the few people who didn't feel sad whenever I thought of him. I learned our loved ones in Heaven know how we feel more than we may realize. I have had other messages from my Uncle Jim letting my father know his younger brother is well, he's with him, and offering my dad guidance regarding his life and retirement. It brings us comfort to know Uncle Jim, who died so tragically, is at peace and still with us in Spirit.



gomingerfamily My dad is very funny, likes playing and watching all kinds of sports, and is a loving, loyal provider for our family. He was very involved as a father and did many activities with us. One of the things I appreciated about him the most was his patience. When I was little, I remember asking him, "Dad, why is the sky blue?" and he gave me his most honest, thoughtful answer. I was never afraid to ask questions as I grew up because of his support.

My mom was beauty queen her junior and senior years in high school. My mom's older brother drove her around sitting on top of his convertible waving and looking pretty in the football homecoming parade. My mother's family were very spiritually focused, church-goers from the mid-west. My great uncle and great-grandfather were both preachers, along with a few other relatives further back in the family line. They were very charismatic inspirational speakers in the church. They were also farmers and very hard working laborers who loved family. Both sides of the family were very caring, supportive, had a keen sense of humor, and enjoyed music, animals, and nature.

My mom loves being a wife and mother. She is always concerned about family and does whatever she can to try to help us. My mom likes to stay busy so she enjoys tennis, golf, playing bridge, cooking, entertaining, spending time with dad, and keeping up with the children, grandchildren, and her friends. My mother is a compassionate person who genuinely cares about the well-being of others. She is always trying to help and uplift in whatever way she can.



Unfortunately, my mother's father, Wes, died in a horrible gun accident when she was just 5-years-old. It was very difficult for her family as you can well imagine. When my mom's mother had to go to work, her mother's sister (my Great Aunt Delores) and her mother's mother, (my Great Grandma) helped raise my mom and her three older brothers, in addition to helping raise Great Aunt Delores' two children who had also lost their father due to an illness. It was also just after the Great Depression so things were especially tight financially. It was really tough times, but they survived. They pulled together and their very strong faith and trust in God/Source/Higher Power helped pull them through.

When my mother's mother (who we called Grandma Brooks) was passing at 97-years-old, she told my mom, "Wes (Grandma Brooks' husband) wants me to come, but I don't know how to get there. Delores (her sister who had passed many years earlier) is calling me." My mom tearfully replied, "It's okay, Mother. You'll see them soon." Shortly thereafter, Grandma Brooks joined her husband (Wes), her sister (Delores), and her mother in Heaven. I know they are all still with us and we will be with them again one day.


I actually knew my mother's mother's mother (my Great Grandma). She lived to be 93-years-old. She made me "hot cakes" (pancakes) in the morning when I'd spend the night with her as a little girl when my family visited. My Great Grandma would feed the neighbor cat when he came to her back kitchen door during our breakfast.



yellowtulips My Great Grandma's husband's name was Herschel. He had polio before he died. Because of the polio, Great Grandpa Herschel couldn't walk.

Before my Great Grandma died in the hospital, my Grandma Brooks heard her mother saying, "Herschel! I didn't know you could walk, Herschel. Where are you going? Oh, you're going to tell the others I'm coming."



When my mother shared that story with me at 13-years-old, I said very joyfully, "Mom, do you know what that means?" She said, "No, what?" I said, "It means we don't die!"

I realized that my Great Grandmother was talking with people who had passed, but were still alive in Heaven. That experience and the passing of my dad's dad (Pop Pop), also at age 13, began my desire to find out more about the after life and where my relatives had gone.

At age 13, I wondered where were my Grandpa, Great Grandma, Great Grandpa, Great Aunt Delores, Uncle Jim, and Pop Pop now that they had passed if they were still communicating with us? Where was I going when it was my time to pass? What was it like there? I had to know more and so began my unending quest and thirst for spiritual knowledge and first-hand experience of the after life.



roseboquet Great Grandpa Herschel started and was the Pastor of a Quaker or Friends Church. The Friends Church often focuses on trying to hear the truth of God through direct experience and personal relationship with Spirit. The Pastors sometimes choose to offer unprepared vocal ministry worship where the order of service and often some of the inspirational messages are not planned in advance, but instead spoken inspirationally as one is moved by Spirit.

Great Grandpa's son Joseph (my Great Uncle) later started and was a dedicated Pastor of a Nazarene Church. He was a wonderful speaker, inspirational motivator, and very passionate about service. Although I am neither a Quaker or Nazarene, I often feel the loving influence of my ancestors guiding and supporting me. I also feel I have their gift for inspirational speaking.



I feel similar to them in wanting to guide, empower, and inspire others. I too have their dedication and strong desire to serve others and personally connect with Spirit. I consider myself "spiritual", rather than "religious" meaning I have my own personal, eclectic relationship with God/Spirit/the Universe or however else you may want to define the Creator.

My mother's father's mother (my Great Grandmother) was also a very passionate, spiritually focused person. She would voluntarily preach informally on behalf of the Friends Church.

Going back even further into my family history, I learned about a relative who was a Methodist Minister, teacher, and song writer in the 1800's living in the South. So spiritual work goes back pretty far in my family for some of my relatives on my mother's side.

We called my dad's mother Mama Lou. Mama Lou had been very good friends with the parents of a family named Hild. Mr. & Mrs. Hild passed quite a few years before Mama Lou. Shortly before Mama Lou passed, she told my parents, "The Hilds came to visit me last night." Knowing we will be with our family and friends again when we pass joyfully reconfirms my knowledge in our life after this life.

Another uplifting, inspirational story about life after death is about my mom's good friend Eleanor. Eleanor's mother Leona was in hospice waiting to pass. Leona was 97 years old and had lived a long, good, happy life, but was nearing the end. Leona's husband Carl had passed quite a few years before her. A few weeks before Leona passed, Eleanor went in to check on her mother in hospice and found her mother determinedly trying to pack her clean and dirty clothes in her suitcase like she was on a mission. When Eleanor asked, "Mom, what are you doing?" Her mother replied, "Carl is coming to get me. I need to be ready."

Here's another interesting story about communication from the After Life. My good friend Sal lost her husband Craig to cancer. She was left to raise their 3 young children by herself. A month after Craig passed, I sensed the presence of her husband while I was balancing my check book of all things.

Then a few years after Craig had passed, I was getting ready for bed and had the light on my night stand turned on to get myself ready for bed. I finished what I was doing, turned off the light, put on my eye patch (I hate the light when I sleep), and pulled up the covers to go to sleep.



sunburst I fell asleep right away and woke up around 2:00 am to use the restroom. When I took off my eye patch to walk to the bathroom, I discovered the bed light was on. (I had turned it off before I went to sleep, remember?) I called to my husband who was in the living room, "Mark, did you turn the light on in here?" He said, "No." I was curious. Did Spirit make that happen? Did someone want my attention? Since I mostly feel and hear Spirit people (not see them) I wasn't sure who it was.

I went to the restroom and got back into bed with my eye patch back on. As I lay there wondering how the light got on and who did it and why and was it someone in Spirit, I felt a pressure on my feet like someone was touching my toes. Sometimes when my cat Sammy jumps up onto the bed, it will feel somewhat like that. I took off my eye patch to check, but Sammy was in the hallway. Who touched my toes? Now I was concerned.

Since it was 2:00 am, I didn't feel like waking up fully and trying to communicate with the Spirit. I didn't feel it was a malevolent spirit, but just to make sure, I got out of bed and saged the whole apartment while saying a prayer and asking God, Jesus, and Archangel Michael to escort anyone who is not of the light or for my highest and best out of the apartment. I said, "If this is my family in Heaven doing these things, please stop. You are scaring me. Find another way to send me a sign or get my attention and let me know who is doing this."



I asked my husband Mark to come to bed with me thinking that might stop whoever was in Spirit. Mark did come to bed and then as I tried to sleep, I felt a touch on the top of my head twice. I said to Mark, "Quite touching my head. I'm trying to sleep." Mark said, "I'm not touching your head."

I called my friend Sal the next morning to tell her this whacky Spirit story and she said, "You know what last night was right?" I said, "No." She replied, "It was the anniversary of Craig's passing. The kids and I sent a balloon lamp with a lit candle up in the air last night and said some things to Craig (her husband/their father) in a little ceremony in remembrance of him."

I reminded Sal that Craig was an Eagle Boy Scout and that a common way to communicate or signal someone in the wilderness is to reflect sunlight off a mirror. When someone sees your signal, they send a reflection of sunlight back to you to confirm they got your signal. When Craig turned on my bed light, it was his message to you and the children that he received your messages and the lit balloon lamp that you sent to him in the sky.

Craig made sure I didn't dismiss him turning the bed light on as just some weird fluke so he also touched my feet and head twice so I wouldn't think I was making it up and so hopefully, he would get my attention, I would then tell you the story, and you could receive his message. Wow!!"

We both agree this made perfect sense. Now if the bed light goes on again by itself in the middle of the night or my feet and head are touched lightly, I won't be afraid or wonder who it is. I'll just say, "Hi, Craig!"



orchids Lastly, I told Sal, "I know you miss Craig, but isn't it great to know he heard your messages, saw your ceremony, saw the lamp you sent up, and to know he is with you and that he tried really hard to send a message back to you!" She agreed it was, although I could still feel the pain of his absence in her heart.

Two days later, my electronic digital photo display that sits on my bedroom dresser went on "by itself". I've had that electronic photo display for about 6 years. To turn it on, you have to push down on a button on the top of it fairly hard. It has never gone on "by itself" in the entire 6 years that I have had it.

This time I knew it was Craig, my friend Sal's deceased husband. I wasn't afraid. I was excited he was trying to get my attention again to send a message to Sal. I happily looked up in the air and said, "Hi, Craig!"

I called my friend Sal to tell her the good news that her husband in Heaven had come through with another sign that he was around. She thanked me for telling her and said with tears in her throat, "Today is our wedding anniversary."

Later that same day my laptop in the adjacent room malfunctioned. When those in Heaven are near us and want to get our attention, they can often easily manipulate electronic devices. Maybe someone has been sending you a sign from Heaven as well? If so, say hello and know they are sending you their love.



OK. Now back to the history of my family. On an upbeat, fun note, on my father's side of the family, if you go back 14 generations (not much, right?) we found out we are related to the first European to build a residential house in Canada, Governor Pierre Chauvin, Sieur de Tonnetuit of France.

Governor Chauvin was a naval and military captain in the French Royal Navy under King Henri IV, a powerful merchant, and owner of 4 ships of his own. He had turned to commercial interests after a long military career and sailed up the St. Lawrence River looking for trading posts. In 1602, he explored the St. Lawrence and established a little colony at Tadoussac, in Quebec, Canada, where the Saint Lawrence and Saguenay rivers joined. There he built a house which became a trading post. It was France's first trading post on the mainland of New France. It is the oldest site of continuous European settlement in Quebec and in Canada. In 1603, Samuel de Champlain drew this house on one of his maps and identified it as, "dwelling place of Captain Chauvin from the year 1600." Pretty cool, eh?!

Governor Chauvin's French Canadian relatives, Joseph Mcolas and Louis Chauvin, later went on to explore further and ultimately settled in the Tchoupitoulas district above New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. They are identified with the earliest history of exploration of Louisiana and took part in a sailing expedition to find the mouth of the Mississippi River and in the exploration of the Mississippi River.

I think it's interesting that, even before we knew this information about my past relatives, my brother, Greg, who was also in the Navy like Governor Chauvin, ended up living in Mississippi like our relatives of 14 generations ago did. It's funny the similarity between generations and how history repeats itself. Maybe my brother Greg was one of these early explorers in his past life and he wanted to go back to that region in this life? Who knows, but it's fun to think about.



tulips Have you ever done a Past Life Regression? If not, I highly recommend it. It can be very interesting, healing, and revealing.

I've done several Past Life Regressions and have learned some interesting things about myself by doing so. I have also been trained in Past Life Regression and have helped others see into their past lives. Now, I focus more on offering psychic guidance and messages from loved ones in Heaven.

That's just a brief history of my family. I hope it helps you to know me better and understand what started my interest in metaphysics.



Sometimes, people wonder what religion I am so I will answer it this way. I consider myself to be spiritual, rather than religious. I respect each person's right to choose their own pathway to God/Source/Higher Power.

I have a deep, personal relationship with God/Source/Higher Power and my spiritual views draw from several beliefs. I think of us all as children of God and I want us to treat one another with love and respect, as we would like to be treated, no matter what nationality, gender, race, religion, sexuality, or creed we are.


Okay, let's move on to more psychic, mediumship, and channeling stuff. I know you want to hear about the times I used the Ouija Board, when I worked on a cruise line, when I met Donny Osmond, Davy Jones, David Cassidy, Shirley Jones, Florence Henderson, Phyllis Diller, and Robert Goulet, and my experiences channeling Spirit. Are you ready? Here we go!




I SEE YOU!



I remember my mom tucking me into bed at night after I brushed my teeth and said my prayers. When I was around 5 to 8 years of age, no sooner than she had left me to fall asleep, I'd be up with a request for a night light, a glass of water, a question, or a story I wanted to share. I would have all kinds of excuses to leave my bedroom because I couldn't settle down.

I realize now that the reason I couldn't relax is because I was highly sensitive and sensed the presence of Spirit around me. I just knew clairscentiently and intuitively that Spirit people were looking at me and watching me ever since I was a little child. I would pull my blankets up past my nose trying to hide, but I still sensed the presence of Spirit beings in my bedroom. I would sometimes cry out to my Mom to come and be with me. I'm no longer afraid now that I know what is happening and now that I understand my Spirit Guides just want to offer me their love, support, and wisdom.



butterfly I have always wanted to fly. I believe our Spirit remembers being free in this way which is why so many of us want to experience flying again in physical form. As a little child, I used to run around the yard and tell myself that if I ran really, really fast and jumped really, really high, while flapping my arms like a bird, I might be able to actually lift off the ground and fly a little bit. It never worked, but I kept trying.

As an adult, I have experienced flying dreams and I have also astral traveled (while wide awake with my eyes open as well as closed) both spontaneously and on purpose. I have even traveled to other galaxies in deep meditation. They are wonderful experiences. Because I always wanted to fly and because I like to travel so much and meet new people and experience different cultures, I thought I would like being a flight attendant. Instead, I ended up working on a cruise line which was great fun, but more about that later.




TV - THE GREAT ESCAPE



Growing up, I loved television and still do. If you're discerning about what you watch, I think it's a great form of entertainment, relaxation, education, and inspiration.

When I was young, my favorite TV program was Bewitched. I would cry if I wasn't allowed to stay up an extra 1/2 hour to watch it. My mom would make me promise that I wouldn't be tired the next day if she let me stay up late. I would sit with my brother Greg on the carpeted floor about 4 feet away from the TV and stare at Samantha Stevens' nose to try and figure out how she twitched it to make magic. (See photo of Greg and me at the beginning of this article.) I truly believed in the magic I was seeing on television. I knew magical things were real, but when I tried to twitch my own nose, nothing happened.

Besides Bewitched, my other favorite TV shows when I was young were The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, I Dream of Jeannie, Lost in Space, and The Nanny and the Professor. I loved The Nanny and the Professor theme song - "What is this magic thing about Nanny is it love or is it magic?" (TV theme song) Thankfully, I grew up in a great time for magical TV. It just fueled my love of mystical things.



tomnetherton I was always very close with my grandparents and I was lucky enough to have them in my life into my teenage and adult years. Because they were always so good to me, I have a particular fondness for older people.

My mother's mother (Grandma Brooks) and I were very close. Grandma Brooks loved watching The Lawrence Welk Show. I could count on Grandma Brooks watching her favorite TV program every Saturday night. I loved watching The Lawrence Welk Show with her when we were together.

If you watched it too, then you remember the dancing team Bobby and Cissy, the "Champagne Lady" Norma Zimmer, and the wonderful married musical duo Guy and Ralna!



Well, as a fun side note, my mom took her 90-year-old mother to a Lawrence Welk concert with many of the same cast members. Grandma Brooks sat in the front row all a gush. Tom Netherton, the handsome blonde baritone, went into the audience, gently lifted Grandma out of her seat, sang to her, and then gave her a kiss on the check! She was thrilled. (Don't you just love the photo of Grandma Brooks with Tom Netherton above. Oooh la la, Grandma!)



guyralna In 2015, I attended a concert with Guy Hovis and Ralna English of the Lawrence Welk show.

I loved watching them at my Grandma's house. They were so good and such a lovely couple. Their voices were just as great as ever. Their concert was terrific and they were wonderful to let us adoring fans get our picture taken with them afterwards. They were so gracious, bubbly, and warm.

Here I am with Guy and Ralna!

So much fun!!




OUIJA BOARD & SPIRIT GUIDES



Around age 13, my friend, Sally, found a Ouija Board in her house. For the next 15 years, we would spend many weekends speaking to Spirit Guides and loved ones in Heaven through the Ouija Board, although I now know there are better (and easier) ways to communicate with Spirit. (Here's a photo of my friend, Sally, and me goofing around with the Ouija Board at her house around age 18.)



gaylesalouija2 The first Spirit Guide I ever met through the Ouija Board spelled her name, "WALDER" so that is what my friend and I called her.

We asked Walder, the Spirit Guide, where she was from and she spelled Germany. So, we pronounced her named as if it were spelled "Valder" with the "W" like a "V". Walder was a very playful Spirit Guide, as were we. Like attracts like.

When we would put our index fingers on the planchette (the small plastic piece that moves on the board) and asked, "Walder, are you here?" she would move the piece around the board, usually in circles. She always seemed to be there when we asked for her and she was always ready to play with us on the Ouija Board.



We would ask her to move the piece faster and she would. We asked her to move the piece in a circle in the opposite direction, back and forth, and side to side. She would. Walder moved the planchette any way we liked, even in a 5-pointed star and often at lightening speed, sometimes so fast our fingers would slide off the piece. It was a lot of fun for many years.

I knew Walder was not my only Spirit Guide because when I would ask questions about my future, the energy of the board would change, the planchette would slow down, and a wise group of Spirit Guides would spell things like, "BE HERE NOW." I didn't understand that my guides were lovingly trying to help me to be in the present moment and enjoy my youth. As a young teenager, all I cared about was if the boy I liked was going to ask me to the school dance. I didn't want to, "BE HERE NOW" as the Ouija Board suggested to me.

Since then, I have met many of my Spirit Guides. Some have shown themselves to me in my meditations, others have introduced themselves to me in my lucid dreams. Other guides have made themselves known when I have trance channeled in a light, altered consciousness. All of my Spirit Guides have been loving, supportive, compassionate, wise, and trustworthy. They offer me guidance, comfort, and healing.

We all have Spirit Guides. Sincerely ask to meet your guides before you go to sleep at night or before you meditate. Eventually, when you relax enough, you will meet them. Develop that partnership with your guides. They are here to help you navigate your life. Your life is a partnership between you and Spirit (your Higher Self/Soul, the Universe, Spirit Guides, Angels, Ascended Masters, and loved ones in Heaven).




DONNY OSMOND & DAVID CASSIDY!



Thirteen years old was a great year! I was allowed to get my ears pierced (by a licensed medical doctor, in his office, with my mom present).

My mother also gave me the thrill of a lifetime which was tickets to attend a LIVE DONNY OSMOND CONCERT!!

We sat on the main floor and I brought my diary so I could get his autograph. Donny, must not have seen me that night sitting with my mother and thousands of young, SCREAMING girls. I'm sure he would have gladly given me his autograph if he had known I wanted it.

As a side note, I finally got to meet Donny Osmond about twenty years later when I was about 33-years-old and living in Chicago. Donny was starring in the play, "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" (which, of course, I saw) at the Chicago Theatre. I was on my lunch hour and enjoying some fresh air outside of the office building I worked in.

All of a sudden, DONNY OSMOND walked passed me! OMG! Donny Osmond, my teenage heart throb, was about 5 feet away from me!! I knew immediately who he was and quickly walked to catch up with him and join him in stride.

I looked over at him and asked quietly and respectfully, "Excuse me, but are you Donny Osmond?" He said he was. I quickly added, "I don't want to bother you, but I have loved you ever since I was 11 years old." Donny Osmond thanked me (!!) and then he asked, "Do you know where State Street Bank is?" I said I did not. He said goodbye and left.

For those of you wondering, yes, my husband knows about my crush. My husband even escorted me to a Donny Osmond concert in Boston a few years ago. I know I'm married to the better man. Thanks, honey! I love you.



davidcassidy During my early thirties, when I lived in Chicago in the 1980's, I also met teen idol David Cassidy of the 1970's TV show The Partridge Family.

It was a surreal experience meeting David Cassidy in person because I had watched, memorized, acted out, and sang songs from every episode of that TV series during my youth.

It was a thrill to finally meet David Cassidy. (Don't you just love the bubble captions I put into the photo on the left with David and me? Slightly embarrassing now.)

During that time, I also met Davy Jones of the 1960's TV show The Monkees. Remember when Davy Jones made a guest appearance on the TV show The Brady Bunch?



Do you remember the episode where Marcia Brady tried to get Davy Jones to be her prom date and the dreamy song he sang to her? "Girl, look what you've done to me - me and my whole world." Sigh!

Both superstars were outside the Chicago Theatre at various times when I just happened to be there so I was lucky enough to get to see them close and in person! Growing up, I loved musical TV shows and TV variety shows. I projected myself into each one of them. I still love them!




SEANCES, LEVITATION & PREMONITIONS



As a young teenager, I often wanted to conduct seances at my slumber parties. I remember one time when my 5 girlfriends, Mom, and I squeezed into the bathroom, turned off all the lights (except for the red night light) and sat on the floor asking George Washington to come. I remember getting really upset when some of them started laughing and thought is was a joke. I knew we could contact George Washington if everyone tried hard enough.

I also remember trying to levitate someone at those slumber parties. One of us girls would lie down on our back and the rest of us would stand around them with only our fore fingers and middle fingers under their body as we lifted them into the air. It worked! I also remember trying to move objects on my desk in my bedroom with the powers of my mind. That didn't work.



purpleandorangeflower I was very sensitive and still am. Even as a child, I seemed to know how people felt intuitively and empathically. I sensed their emotions, thoughts, and often knew if they weren't telling the truth. It confused me because adults sometimes said one thing, but felt something different. I didn't understand.

I would also get psychic hunches or premonitions about upcoming events such as an award I would later win when I was in the 8th grade for having good grades and a car accident I was in as a passenger of a drunk driver when I was 18.



Before these things actually happened, I also psychically knew of my brother's passing, my youngest brother's divorce, the gender of my sister's second child, that both my mother and my father's separate medical tests would be okay, the birth of a friend's grandson and the sex of the child, my mother-in-law's passing, my husband's future job during a period when he was laid off, about a fire in our apartment building when everyone had to evacuate, and that I would get certain jobs when I applied for them.

I also knew when my cat Sammy (who is the reincarnation of my previous cat named Cali) was born in another state without having been told.

I also often intuitively know when someone has an addiction or those tendencies, when someone is sick and needs to see a doctor to prevent a problem, where I have misplaced something I can't find, who not to trust, and when there is a special sale at a department store on an item I need.



yellowflower When I provide readings, I ask my clients to have specific questions about their life prepared ahead of time. They can ask about anything they want as long as they are sincere about it and as long as their questions don't invade another person's privacy.

The question or concern has to be important to them and have an emotional quality for me to tune into. When clients ask their questions and talk with me about their concerns, I tune into them, Spirit, and the people and situations they are asking about.



As my clients briefly discuss their concerns with me, I psychically receive pictures, words, feelings, and intuitive knowings to help them. The information comes from the Universe, my Spirit Guides and their Spirit Guides, their energy/aura, our Higher Self/Soul, and from me.

The psychic guidance and life coaching comes to me through intuition (knowing), clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (feeling), clairgustance (taste), and clariscentrice (scent). It's positive, empowering, and healing.

Divine Spirit and I support my clients' desires, concerns, life challenges, and transitions. We help them to have greater clarity and understanding, see potentials and possibilities, make decisions, solve problems, determine direction, obtain goals, and initiate opportunities.

Spirit and I may provide information regarding the future or outcome of a situation when asked specific questions based on the client's energy and based on how things look right now.

Divine Spirit and I support a person's soul's growth and healing. Our compassionate, loving guidance helps the client to feel heard, understood, validated, worthy, encouraged, and supported.

I am often very empathic and able to perceive the energy around a person, a place, another person (living and deceased), an animal (living and deceased), or a situation.



bowingtonightsky In addition, I am often able to see the potentials and possibilities for people based on their questions and concerns.

With discretion and sensitivity, Spirit and I often gently help my clients become aware of any resistance, blockages, beliefs, and areas in need of emotional and spiritual healing when appropriate. The information helps them to shift and expand their understanding and awareness to create positive personal transformations.

The wise guidance Spirit and I provide helps heal, free, uplift, and empower my clients to be their best and to create the lives they want to live. It assists them in moving forward with greater love, joy, peace, prosperity, health, self-worth, confidence, hope, trust, and ease.



Through readings, I can also help my clients reconnect with their family, friends, and pets who have passed over, if they want, with comforting and healing messages from Heaven. I provide evidence that helps my clients to know I am really connecting with those they love and miss.

It brings my clients such joy and comfort to know their departed loved ones and pets are still alive, doing well, healthy, and at peace. We really will be with them again one day. I know it!

Maybe you've had some of these same experiences or similar ones?

Maybe you would like to develop your intuitive and mediumship sensitivity and gifts for yourself and to help others?

GROWING UP



I was in Girl Scouts from Brownies in 1st grade to First Class Girl Scout in 9th grade. My troop even backpacked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon when I was 13-years-old. We took 2 buses from Ohio to Arizona with 15 moms (including my mom), 2 college students, and 35 young girls. It was terrific! During our 2-week trip, we hiked all the national parks, camped in tents outside, and we sang and danced on the bus. It was fun the whole way.

As a fun side note, I remember going to Lion's department store at Southwick Mall in Toledo, Ohio with my mom as a young teenager in the 1970s.



rose2 My mom asked the sales clerk at the perfume counter, "What's your most expensive perfume?"

The sales clerk excitedly replied (in possible anticipation of a big sale), "Joy perfume. It takes 10,600 jasmine flowers and 28 dozen May roses to make a single ounce. This is the costliest perfume in the world. It's over $100 an ounce!"

"Oh, my!" my mom said. "Can I try some?"

"Sure!" said the sales clerk hoping she would make a big sale that day. The cosmetics clerk then carefully placed on my mom's wrist a small sample of the most delicate, costliest perfume in the world!



My mom took in a long, deep breath of the very expensive Joy perfume. The sales clerk and I watched my mother with great anticipation. My mom smiled wide at the sales clerk.

"Oh, that's very nice!" said my mother. "Thank you very much," and then my mom walked away (to the dismay of the sales lady and me!)

I still remember that story about my mom and Joy perfume fondly and with a big smile.

In junior high and high school, I enjoyed choir, drama, art, student counsel, softball, and making the morning announcements over the intercom system. I liked school and did well in it. I wasn't a nerd and I wasn't popular. I was somewhere in-between. Senior year, I was voted, "Most Likely to Succeed". I've thought about that word - succeed - many times since then, especially around high school reunion time.

"Success" - what is it really? Who's definition of success am I seeking to fill? Is there such a thing as a true definition for success? What would Buddha or Mohammed say? How would Jesus define success? Do they even care about it?

A fortune cookie I opened once had the message, "If you're happy, you're successful." I think that is very true.

I now choose to think of being "successful" as living a full life, learning to love yourself, and being of service to others - no matter what others think of you or say about you.

I'm finally learning that, for the most part, other people's opinion of me is none of my business. I'm learning that the only person I am accountable to is myself and God/Source/Spirit, my husband, my family, my cat, and my kids, if I had any - at least until they're 18 years of age.



monumentvalley After high school, I was selected to participate as a cast member in the international singing group "Up With People".

Although Up With People was highly selective and only something like 1 in 100 people who were interviewed actually made it, I just intuitively knew I would be accepted and I was. I was overjoyed! My long-time dream had finally come true.

For one year, my Up With People cast of 100 young people from around the world traveled to Mexico, Argentina, and the USA promoting love, peace, hope, cooperation, and understanding among people of all nations. It's still a philosophy I believe in and promote today.



We lived with host families and performed songs and dances for small groups to the tens of thousands in settings ranging from charity events, inside bull rings, football half-time shows, and on international television.

At the bottom of this page, check out the fun music/dance video of Up With People performing at the 1982 Superbowl XVI half-time show featuring music from the 1960's and Motown!




CONFIRMATION OF MY SPIRIT GUIDE



I had my first psychic mediumship reading when I was 18-years-old from a very gifted psychic medium in Toledo, Ohio named Mrs. Miller, who was about 80-years-old. Mrs. Miller said she saw music and travel all around me. (This was before I had participated in Up with People or worked on the cruise ships. Mrs. Miller was right on.)

When I watched Mrs. Miller tell me things she was seeing and hearing from the Spirit World, I said to myself, "I want to do that. I want to know what that is like. I've got to find out!"

That first psychic mediumship reading got me hooked. I was fascinated by the Spirit World and I wanted to know more.

I had my second reading when I was 24-years-old from a well-known, gifted psychic medium in New York City named Reverend Clifford Bias. He was about 85-years-old and formerly the President of the Independent Spiritualist Association and a Trance Medium.

Before I met with Clifford for the reading, his assistant told me to write a question on a piece of paper, fold it in half, and put it in my pocket without showing Clifford what I wrote. His assistant told me I should write down something I wanted to know. I thought a minute and wrote, "Is Walder trustworthy?" (Remember, that's one of my Spirit Guides I met doing the Ouija Board when I was 13-years-old).



ouijaboard At the start of the reading, Clifford said to me, "You have fire burning in your brain and fire burning in your hands. Fire is creativity. You should work on a hobby or interest of a creative nature...

You should get yourself a camera. Get yourself a typewriter (this was 1984 remember!) because eventually you're going to be taking a lot of pictures of places and things and you're going to be writing about them...You're gonna end up writing. It's gonna take 100 years for it to be, but you have creative talent.

You have the ability to create illusion. In otherwords, make people want something. I don't mean with the idea of cheating or anything, but helping people to make up their mind that they're going to do this particular thing...It's good...



You have good psychic sensitivity. Pay attention to it. You're going to lead a creative life. You're going to help other people. You're going to stretch forth your hand to be of help to other people."

Then he said he saw me working on a cruise ship. (Yep, he was right. I was working on the cruise ships at the time of the reading.)

Clifford then told me about my deceased grandfather. He said, "I'm hearing the name Pop, Pop. It's a man. Is that your Daddy? He gives you a kiss on the cheek. He loves you very much and he's proud of you."

I said, "It's my grandfather. We called him, Pop Pop." Clifford was right again!

Half-way into the reading, Clifford said to me, "There is a beautiful maiden - misty. I see a beautiful, tall girl with long hair that is guiding and watching over you. Wall, Wall, the Lady of the Wall. I don't know what name I'm trying to say. Trailing, misty garments. Beautiful, beautiful Spirit. She's a guiding force, a guiding influence for you. Pay attention to it. There's nothing wrong with it. She won't lead you wrong - a little playful at time, but that's alright. In fact, I think she belongs to another order of beings like the Feys or Fairies. I don't know. It's almost like some of these mythical characters, but it's a Spirit. Beautiful, not tall, but slender. A beautiful gal. I keep getting Wall-Wall."

I told Clifford, "She spelled it to me on the Ouija Board Walder."

Clifford said, "Some of it will be playful so you gotta realize that some of it is given with tongue and cheek, but it is trustworthy." Wow! How cool is that? This psychic medium whom I had never met before was able to confirm for me that one of my Spirit Guides was named Walder, was REAL, and she was trustworthy.

Although I had been talking to Walder on the Ouija Board ever since I was 13-years-old, it was the first time I ever had someone else confirm her identity for me. VERY COOL!

At the end of the reading, he said again, "Writing is going to be your big bet."

Don't you just love this stuff. I'm not making any of it up. It's all true - every single word of it!

I could go on and on and I will in my book someday. Be sure to join my newsletter at the top right of this page so you'll know when my book comes out.




CRUISE LINE & OUIJA BOARD



Right after earning a BS in Art Education from Ohio State University, I worked on board Norwegian Cruise Lines in the Caribbean for almost 3 years. Here's a photo my friend sent to me of when we were on the ships together. I'm in the 1st row on the far left in the white gown getting ready for another Captain's Cocktail Party. Ooh, la, la! The Cruise Director is standing directly behind me. Those were fun times!

I first worked as an Activities Coordinator with the children cruising, then as a Shore Excursions Manager, and finally as a Hostess (sort of like Julie McCoy from the TV show, "Love Boat"!) Again, although the job took over a year of regular phone calls to the hiring person to finally secure, I intuitively knew I would somehow get the job and thankfully, I did.



cruiseshipgroupphoto Besides getting to see the Caribbean Islands, one of the really fun parts of the job on board the ships was the opportunity to get to perform in the cruise staff shows for the passengers. I also got to work on board a cruise ship called the Norway which was the largest passenger cruise ship in the world at that time.

Being on that ship allowed me to get to enjoy many wonderful song, dance, comedy, and Broadway-type performances by professional entertainers. Right up my alley! (Check out the photo I took below of St. John's, an island in the Caribbean, during the time I worked for the cruise line. Gorgeous, right?!)

While I was working for the cruise line, I continued to talk to Spirit in my cabin during my time off using a Ouija Board I had made out of an old pizza box lid.



I used a magic marker and wrote the alphabet on it in Ouija Board fashion and wrote yes/no/out on it as well. I also cut a small 1 inch circle from the instructions from a deck of cards which acted as a planchette.

I would spend many nights speaking to Spirit Guides and "deceased" family members with a girl who worked as a dealer in the casino on board and other shipmates.

During my time on the cruise ship, I also began to feel the physical presence of my Spirit Guides overshadowing me as is often done in trance channeling.

I could feel my Spirit Guides blending their energies more closely with mine. I encouraged the connection with little games I made up and played with Spirit.



carribcruise Once while I was partying in my early 20's and doing the Ouija Board with friends on the cruise ship while we were docked in Nassau, Bahamas, I encountered my first truly vivid clairvoyant experience and it wasn't a good one. The Ouija Board started spelling some curse words when all of a sudden in my mind's eye I saw the face of a pirate laughing at us girls.

I quickly withdrew my hands and stopped "playing" the Ouija Board, although the pirate spirit I saw clairvoyantly followed me around for several days. In front of hundreds of people, the pirate manipulated energy so that he was able to burst the plastic cork top off a champagne bottle that was capped and tightly wrapped with wire and foil that I was handing to a passenger on stage as a gift for a game they had won.

It was my first negative experience with the psychic world. I never partied and did psychic experiments at the same time after that. I would like to add that I've only ever had about 2 negative experiences with Spirit in my whole life. Like attracts like so when you're heart is in the right place and you are healthy and balanced in mind, body, emotions, and spirit, you can feel safe doing this type of thing. You are Divine. You don't need protection, just a pure intention.




SHIRLEY JONES & ME!



I'm confessing that I'm a bit of a star hound, if you couldn't tell already! For those of you not into Hollywood stuff, hang in there. We'll get to more psychic, mediumship, and channeling stuff in a minute.

I first have to tell you that I met Mrs. Carol Brady. Yes, folks, I met Florence Henderson (sort of). She did a singing show on the cruise ship when I worked on it. She was very nice and didn't try and sell me any Wesson Oil. (Remember the 1980's TV commercial she was in?)

I also got to meet Phyllis Diller and Robert Goulet! (I absolutely love Robert Goulet's voice, especially the song, "If ever I would leave you, it would be in summer, for it is in summer I never would go.") I met Phyllis Diller and Robert Goulet once backstage at Robert Goulet's concert when I was dating Robert's musical conductor (who also conducted music for the TV soap show, "The Young and Restless"). I met and subsequently dated Robert Goulet's musical conductor on the cruise ships in the disco one night after Robert Goulet gave a concert on board the ship. He invited me to Los Angeles where I got to hang out on the set of "The Young and Restless" TV show. My fun, crazy life!

I also met Mr. T. Remember him? He's the guy with the warrior hairstyle and all the gold necklaces from the 1980's TV show, "The A-Team". If you don't know him, you can look him up on Wikipedia. Mr. T. was riding in a convertible with the top down in Chicago when I happened to be crossing the street in front of his car at the time.

I looked in the car as I walked past him and yelled out in surprise, "Hey, you're Mr. T.!" He replied, "Aw, shucks!" and acted shy about the whole thing. Although intimidating and scary looking, Mr. T. was very nice and humble. I liked him. He didn't seem so tough or mean after all. Remember him saying on TV, "I pity the fool! Don't give me no back talk, sucker! Don't make me mad! Quick your jibber jabber." Fun memories!



partridgefamily I also have tell you about the fun time when I was "on" (sat in the audience) Danny Bonaduce's TV show that he did out of Chicago in the early 1990's. (See the photo of me with The Partridge Family!!)

On the Danny Bonaduce show, Danny did an episode called, THE 25th ANNIVERSARY PARTRIDGE FAMILY REUNION!! (1970's hit TV series)

As a pre-teen, that was my absolute favorite TV show of all time, followed by The Mary Tyler Moore Show when I was in my teens, and later Oprah, Seinfeld, stand-up comedy, and British sitcoms as an adult.

Attending The Partridge Family Reunion was Shirley Jones, Dave Madden (Reuben Kincaid), the 1st Chris, and little Tracy (now all grown-up). Susan Dey couldn't make it and called the show to say hi



I got to speak with Shirley Jones after the show and have a photo with her, which is also a great story I will have to tell you about sometime. (Check out the photo of Shirley and me below where I have my arm around her and look like a stalker.)

During the filming of the 25th Anniversary Partridge Family Reunion Show, I told Shirley Jones that I played her part as Shirley Partridge when my girlfriends and I re-enacted The Partridge Family in my parent's basement as a young pre-teenager.

We used a tennis racquet as a guitar (complete with a domino as a guitar pick), crayon colored paper plates glued together as a tambourine, my upright desk as a piano, several black plastic handled screw drivers from my Dad's work bench as a microphones, and my little record player on full blast, while we danced and sang our hearts out to the tune, "I think I love you". By the way, this was all my idea. My two friends went along with it, but I think I enjoyed it the most.



shirleyjones While I was at the filming of the 25th Anniversary Partridge Family Reunion Show, (I just love saying that) I also told Shirley Jones that my girlfriend Kelly played the part of David Cassidy (her real-life step-son). Shirley's reply was, "Your girlfriend was David?" I guess Shirley was confused by our casting choices. I don't know why. I digress. Let's keep this story moving, folks!

Wait! Before we continue with this mini-autobiography, I first have to tell you that on the way to the TV studio to film the taping of the Partridge Family 25th Anniversary Reunion Show, my friend and I were passed on the highway by the REAL, ORIGINAL Partridge Family bus!! I honked my car horn several times very loudly as we waved our arms out the windows frantically. We were out of our minds with excitement. It was so fun! I guess you had to be there.



Now on with my life story. Sorry about that segue.

What? Oh, you want to hear about the psychic part of my life. Okay then. Enough goofing around. On with the show!




OPENING UP EVEN MORE TO SPIRIT



After working on the cruise ships, I moved to Boston, MA from my hometown in Ohio, at age 25, which was gutsy considering I had never even been to Boston or New England before. I stayed in Boston for 3 years where I worked for 2 travel agencies and part-time in the evenings as a server at a comedy club where I saw a lot of the great comedians of today get their start.

I then moved to Chicago, IL where I lived for 8 years and worked for a meeting planning company and a law firm. I was married briefly and divorced there. It was a very difficult learning experience. My divorce and a challenging illness shortly thereafter helped me to begin my search for greater meaning, purpose, and direction in my life. My struggle and challenges helped me to take a good hard look at myself and to take greater responsibility for my life. What did I really want? Who did I want to be? How did I want to serve? What was my purpose?



pinkborder Those challenging experiences were instrumental in helping me to learn how to take better care of myself and they helped put me on the spiritual path with greater awareness and intention. Although very difficult at the time, in hindsight, I am thankful for the growth those experiences provided.

After spending several years learning and recovering from my divorce and illness, I was ready to leave Chicago and try something new. At age 35, I worked hard to secure a job as District Sales Manager with Club Med which relocated me to New Jersey. I stayed for 6 months and then found a better paying job as Regional Sales Director with a travel company that moved me back to Boston where I have been ever since. Next, I worked as National Sales Director for an educational television company that produced distance learning programs for schools and later as a Sales Representative for a charter airline.



Within two months of moving back to Boston for the second time, at age 35, I met my husband, Mark. It was destiny and the time was right for both of us. We met on a whale watch and have been happily married ever since. After much thought, we chose not to have children. Instead, we nurture and devote our time to each other, family, friends, pets, careers, service, and personal growth, healing, and pursuits. We have one lovey kitty who is our pride and joy and who is adored and pampered. I love dogs too and I pet every dog I see on my morning walks. I love all animals. Fish, hamsters, gerbils, chameleons, chickens, and rabbits all found a loving place in my home growing up.

During my twenties and thirties, I began to voraciously read about psychism, mediumship, and channeling. My world was opened at 24-years-old with the book, "Out on a Limb" by Shirley MacLaine and her story of Kevin Ryerson as a trance channel. I also learned about the trance channeling of the entity Seth by Jane Roberts and of the entity Abraham by Esther Hicks whom you may have heard of through Hay House Publications which was begun by new thought leader Louise Hay.



nicerdove I had my first experience really physically sensing "deceased" loved ones at age 24. My grandfather, who we called Pop Pop, came to me and I could literally feel his gentle, loving touch. Although he passed when I was 13, I know he's been watching over me and giving me his support from Heaven.

I also distinctly smelled my "deceased" grandfather Pop Pop's cigarette smoke in my car one day when the windows were up. It was after I had given a Messages from Heaven program for a large group of people.

I knew my grandfather wanted to let me to know he was with me, he had seen me working, and he proud of what I was doing. It made me feel good to know he was with me and proud of me.



I also heard my "deceased" Grandma Brooks say, "He's so sweet!" as I petted my cat Sammy on the morning of her passing. I didn't know she had passed until later that day. It just confirmed for me that my grandmother was truly okay, happy, and at peace again.

My other "deceased" grandma, who we called Mama Lou, came to see me in a visitation dream a few years after she passed at age 97. She looked about 60 years old and her hair was dark again. My grandma looked young, pretty, and gave me a big smile to let me know she was okay and no longer had Alzheimer's. We gave each other a big hug full of love. I called my father to let him know his mother came to visit me and that she was doing very well.

Unfortunately, my brother Greg, who I used to talk to Mr. Frog the Spirit Guides with, passed away in 2008. I'll share more about that later. Greg has visited me several times in visitation dreams. I also sense his presence around me from time to time or receive signs from him. It's very comforting to know he's at peace and well. His two daughters have visitation dreams and other signs from him also.

When I give readings to people wanting to connect with their loved ones or pets in Heaven, I often can connect with one or more of the people they are hoping to hear from, although I can't promise a connection or who will come, which is true for all psychic mediums.

I even have some loved ones in Heaven connect with me before my clients have their readings because they're so anxious to reunite with their loved ones on Earth. It's very satisfying to help people here and on the Other Side reunite, have conversations, and continue sharing the love. It brings everyone a sense of peace and comfort, including me.



sunflower In my twenties and thirties, I go would see any and all affordable psychics for readings and to learn from them. I found myself asking a lot of questions. I wondered where my "deceased" grandparents were now and where I would go when I passed. I wondered, "Who am I?" and "Why I am here?" and "What's my life purpose?" I remember asking my mom when I was 10-years-old, "Mom, if God created the world, where was he when he created it?"

I asked Spirit to help me to know who God was and I questioned which religion was the right one to follow. I longed to know my purpose and I searched for a like-minded community to share things with. I wanted greater happiness and looked for the meaning in life.



Later, it made sense that I had such an inquisitive mind and a strong desire for a deeper connection with Spirit considering I am a number 7 Life Path in Numerology which is the Mystic - the seeker and sharer of truth. 7's have a clear and compelling sense of themselves as a spiritual being. We're devoted to investigations into the unknown and to finding the answers to the mysteries of life and sharing what we learn with others.

If you wish, I can also briefly include some Numerology in your Private Reading to help you to better understand the potential life path, life purpose, innate personality, gifts, talents, strengths, challenges, and possible weaknesses for yourself and for others.

To do Numerology, all I need from you is the correct birth month, date, and year. Please give me this information during the reading, not before. Birth time and place are not needed.

To be honest with you, I never used to believe in Numerology. Once I learned more about it, I realized it is an accurate and powerful tool for helping people to understand themselves and others. That is why I love using it to help people, if they are open to it. I will still allow plenty of time for you to receive psychic guidance and for your questions as well. If you are not interested in Numerology, that's fine too.




LIVING AN AUTHENTIC LIFE



At age 38, I felt restless with my career. I wanted to feel more fulfilled spiritually so I nervously took the plunge to leave the corporate world, explore my metaphysical interests, develop my abilities further, and heal myself personally and with the help of others in body, mind, and spirit.

I worked part-time jobs as a dog walker, manager of a new age book store, and later as an after school teacher (great training for helping you decide if you want to be a parent or not) which allowed me time to develop as a psychic medium and begin my own business. I started taking many development classes to further expand upon my natural gifts, talents, and abilities.



lavender I was born with great sensitivity. I have also worked very hard developing my abilities over many years. Everyone has psychic and mediumship abilities to varying degrees and with knowledge and practice, these abilities can be developed further.

Since 1991, after my divorce, I deeply studied and devoted my life into my personal and professional spiritual development. I took lots of classes in a variety of subjects such as meditation, psychism, mediumship, trance channeling, astral traveling, past life regression, sound and color healing, spiritual healing, Reiki, therapeutic touch, quantum touch, chakra balancing, medical intuition, psychometry, and other classes with respected teachers and organizations. I'm still taking classes because I love learning and in this field there is always something interesting to learn, plus you can always improve your skills.



Some classes that I took lasted a few hours. Other times, a class lasted 7 days from morning until night. Sometimes, it was a weekly class that met over 9 months. Often, I would be at a retreat consisting of many classes for 17 days straight everyday from morning until night learning and practicing.

If you have the chance to do a long class or retreat, I highly recommend it. Being away from the "real world" and fully immersed in the intuitive world can really help you to open up and is a great experience. Even if the class is only one afternoon or a full day, as long as it takes you away from your normal life, it can be a boost to your morale and it will open and strengthen your connection to Spirit! By the way, all of the classes I took, plus lodging, transportation, meals, and required materials, were at my own expense and it was often costly so be sure to keep in mind your personal and household budget so you don't over extend yourself.

In addition to years of intense self-study on my own and with my Spirit Guides, I also intensely studied the work of respected people and continue to do so today. Learning is a life-long process which I enjoy and love to share with others. I attended many workshops and seminars and I learned from many classes, programs, books, DVD's, and CD's with smart, talented, and respected mystics, thinkers, seekers, philosophers, teachers, psychics, mediums, channels, and healers covering a wide range of education, backgrounds, and traditions such as John Edward, Lisa Williams, James Van Praagh, Doreen Virtue, John Holland, Robert Brown, Tony Stockwell, Gordon Smith, Craig & Jane Hamilton-Parker, Estelle Roberts, Ivy Northage, Rosemary Brown, Harry Edwards, Olga Worrall, Leslie Flint, Doris Stokes, Doris Collins, Maurice Barbanell, Eileen Caddy, Margaret Challenger, Martin Twycross, Brenda Lawrence, Patricia Hayes, Glyn Edwards, Betty Shine, Bill Collier, Janet Nohavec, Sharon Klingler, Paul & Deborah Rees, Elaine Thomas, Amelia Kinkade, Louise Hay, Esther Hicks (Abraham), Kevin Ryerson (Trance Channel from Shirley MacLaine's "Out on a Limb" book), Jane Roberts (Seth), Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer (Orin & Daben), Harry Edwards, Melody Beattie, Karen Casey, Harville Hendrix, Dan Millman, Sonia Choquette, Gary Zukav, Eknath Easwaran, Deepak Chopra, Caroline Myss, Joshua David Stone, Norman Paulsen, Alfred Ricci, Ambika Wauters, Marshall Smith, Kimberley & Charles Curcio, Tom Cratsley, Grace Cooke (White Eagle), Paramahansa Yogananda, Roy Eugene Davis, Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters), Gary Zukav, Anne Meyer Makeever, and A Course In Miracles to name a few. Gradually, I began offering what I was learning for my clients and I developed my own business to help others.



meditating I further developed my natural gifts through intensive self-study over many years and with numerous wonderful, respected teachers at Lily Dale, Arthur Findlay College, Fellowships of the Spirit, Delphi University, SNU International, Omega Institute, Journey Within, Heartfelt Angel Connections, Doreen Virtue's Angel University, Kripalu Center, Spiritualist churches, mediums' homes, and Circles of Wisdom. The main thing I learned was that I was a highly sensitive person and that my psychic and mediumship gifts were truly there all along. (Sound familiar, Dorothy?) Growing up, I was largely uneducated about metaphysical things and that was a great part of what I needed to learn and recognize.



Some of my lack of awareness was because the public was not as informed or interested in the metaphysical field when I was growing up as compared to now. Also, most of my family, relatives, teachers, and neighbors didn't understand, appreciate or believe in mystical things and possibly even feared them out of their own lack of understanding.

Because I was so firmly rooted in the "real world" due to my more traditional upbringing and conservative surroundings, I find it now helps me to explain metaphysical concepts to my students, clients, and the more left brain general public.

I am grounded and a good teacher and counselor because I know both worlds - this side and the Other Side. I have a very balanced analytical left brain and intuitive right brain. I am able to empathize with people who are more intuitive, as well as those who aren't, and talk to them in a way they can understand.



angelblowingtrumpet I see part of my role now as a spiritual teacher, guide, counselor, life coach, healing facilitator, writer, and speaker. I hope to help de-mystify the mystical and bring light to any unfounded fears surrounding the subject.

I guess we all begin to awaken when the time is right. There are no mistakes.

My gifts, abilities, guidance, and messages from Heaven were often confirmed by those I gave readings to. I would be encouraged and excited and then my own lack of self-confidence would cause me to doubt myself. Self-growth and personal healing is a continual process. We are here on Earth to first love and heal ourselves and then to help love and heal others.




As a life-long learner, I still enjoy taking classes and I further develop my natural gifts through intensive self-study and practice. I love learning, growing, and developing. I'm still learning to develop greater trust and belief in myself. Life is a temporary school room while we are in this physical body. We are all teachers and students alike.

I love what I do. I work with the Spirit World advising those who are in need, bringing comfort to those in grief, and helping those who are hurting. I am a safe ear for many. I allow people to unburden themselves and assist them in moving forward by offering relief, direction, clarity, understanding, guidance, insight, healing, and upliftment. Feel free to call for an appointment whenever you are ready. Divine Spirit and I are happy to offer you wise psychic guidance, empowering life coaching, and/or loving messages from your family, friends, and pets in Heaven.




CHANNELING MY SPIRIT GUIDES



Early into my development, I met several different Spirit Guides through my dreams. Some of my guides I met in my meditation. I highly suggest everyone learn who their spirit guides are and learn to communicate with them. Our time on Earth is a partnership between us and spirit. Our guides love us and want to support us if we are willing to be open, ask, and receive their guidance.

In addition to psychism, mediumship, and healing, I also studied channeling because I wanted to be as close to my guides as possible. After having read in "Out on a Limb" about trance channel Kevin Ryerson channeling his guides for Shirley MacLaine when I was about 24 years old, I had to see if I could learn to channel my Spirit Guides.

I wanted to know my Spirit Guides more intimately. I wanted to share their wisdom with others and learn from them as well. When I was about 43 years old, I studied Channeling at a Spiritualist Church and on my own for several years. I was able to channel several guides. It was an exhilarating experience and still is every time I channel them.

There are many wise and compassionate heavenly beings loving, guiding, and supporting you. Spirit is aware of what is happening in your life. They love you and want to help you on this Earthly journey.

In some group programs, I channel clear, reliable guidance and messages from Spirit Guides while I am in a light trance control channeling or altered state or deep meditation regarding your questions and concerns.

The channeling that I offer in this program is somewhat similar to Esther Hicks who channels Abraham, Jane Roberts who channeled Seth, or Sanaya Roman who channels Orin which you can learn about online. It's wonderful, fascinating, and enlightening.

The guidance from the Spirit Guides is peaceful, loving, and wise as they speak to you through me. The Guides and I are known for our accuracy, honesty, detailed information, integrity, compassion, and sensitivity.



sunlight I refer to the group of Spirit Guides who work with me as, "Divine Spirit". When I first asked them their group name, I received the words clairaudiently, "THE I AM THAT I AM."

I didn't know what that meant so I Googled the phrase in quotes and learned online that "THE I AM THAT I AM" is the Spirit of God within all of us. It is our Higher Self or Soul.

I told my guides that I thought it was an amazing and beautiful description, but too difficult for most people to understand and that it had too many words.

I told my guides that I would refer to them as, "Divine Spirit" from then on.



Most of the time, my Spirit Guides often speak to me intuitively and clairaudiently. My Spirit Guides talk to me through channeled inspirational writing during the day, especially when I'm walking, but most often at night when I wake up, particularly if I can't fall asleep. I can always tell how good of a night sleep I've had by how many pieces of note paper I've written on during the night. If I don't write their guidance, wisdom, and inspiration down when it flows to me in my thoughts, I lose it. That's why I always carry paper and pen on me.

I never know when the inspiration from Spirit will come or what it will say until it happens and it's often so helpful, I don't want to risk losing it. I often need to absorb what they said later so I save the notes to review at a later time. I hope to share more of their words with you someday. I'm putting together a book of my Spirit Guides' inspired words.



flower26 My Spirit Guides give me guidance about my own personal life as well as what to do for my business. The words of guidance I receive from Spirit can be inspiring and lengthy, but most of the time it comes to me as thoughts which are clear words, thoughts, and sentences that I write down in a sort of dictation-style. The subject matter can range from personal growth, spiritual development, and practical matters in life or business.

I rarely have a night when I don't write something down and it's always very helpful and often profound. Sometimes what my guides say to me is in response to things I have been wondering about or needing direction on. Other times, their words pertain to things I have never thought of myself.



Channeling my Spirit Guides through inspirational writing started when I was in 3rd grade with a poem I wrote and has grown since then. Some of the things Spirit writes through me are so loving, profound, and moving, it brings me to tears. Their words are often wiser than my own and my guides are often more succinct in the way they say things. There is also a bit of a poetic quality to their wisdom.

There is a sense of knowing that comes with the words as I write them down as if the truth is being spoken. My guides' words are always loving and encouraging. There is an urging to write them down that seems to override my own thoughts and feelings temporarily. It feels good as I write for Spirit because when our energies are blended, I feel their presence, love, wisdom, and peace.

I also feel my guides' love and encouragement when I am giving a reading and providing guidance for my clients from Spirit or speaking and writing inspirationally for Spirit in a light altered state of consciousness.

DEDICATION TO MY BROTHER



gregwithgirls Unfortunately and sadly, in 2008, my brother Greg took his own life. It was devastating for all of us.

My brother Greg was 45 years old with 2 teenage daughters. His passing is something my family and I will never have words for. It still doesn't seem real. He is deeply missed. I love you brother.

I had already been working professionally as a Psychic Medium for 10 years when my brother took his own life. Intellectually, I knew that we don't die and that his spirit would live on, but the sudden and tragic loss of his life was still very difficult for me, our family, his children, and friends.

I needed to know my brother was okay, that he was in Heaven, that he was with our family there, that he was physically healthy, and that he was no longer suffering mentally and emotionally.

Through signs, dreams, and other forms of communication from my brother in Heaven, I know he is now at peace, healthy, and with family, friends, and even our dog in Heaven.



My brother Greg's passing has increased my desire and dedication to helping others who are dealing with grief and who are in need of healing or who want to hear from their loved ones again and know that their loved ones are still with them and they are aware of what is happening in their lives.

Please know that there is no death for our Soul. No one dies - not you - not your loved ones. Our Soul lives on forever. We are eternal.

If any of you reading this are thinking of taking your life, please get help. Your loved ones will miss you terribly. To everyone reading this, you matter. You are worthy. You are a Divine Being. You are loved. Love yourself. Share your love with others.

For those who need IMMEDIATE are with suicide or suicide prevention, please call 1-800-SUICIDE. 1-800-784-2433.

I will end this section with a funny story about my brother.

My brother, Greg, and I were on the Bozo the Clown Show in Toledo, Ohio when we were about five and seven years old. It was televised. He won the big prize of the day. It was a giant Tootsie Roll container filled with candy!

On our ride home, he dumped it all in the back of our station wagon and started sorting through it. I asked him for one piece, but he wouldn't give it to me until our mom told him he had to. Finally, he gave me one Dum Dum sucker. Big deal. It was a lot of fun. Great memories.

Here is an inspiring dedication I wrote which includes some of the signs my brother Greg has given from Heaven: DEDICATION TO MY BROTHER.




BOOKS & CHANNELED WRITINGS



I am writing a book about my deceased brother Greg's passing and the signs he's given our family from Heaven. I am also writing a book on how to develop your psychic and mediumship gifts.

In addition, I am writing a book about my own psychic, mediumship, channeling, and healing development. It is in personal diary form and covers many years of ups and downs of personal spiritual growth and healing. I hope when you read it one day, you will realize that you are not alone in your search. There are others on the path with you.

I believe my spiritual diary will help you to see what is possible, what experiences you may encounter as you develop, and help you to grow, heal, and move forward on your journey.

I have also written a wonderful, delightful children's book to help increase self-esteem in children and the adults who read to them. This book was channeled to me by my Spirit Guides.

I am also writing a channeled book of inspirational writing from my Spirit Guides that helps you to heal and love yourself more, among other topics.

If you would like to be notified when my books are published, please join my newsletter at the top right of this page.

I believe that it is through being of service with your natural gifts, talents, and abilities that you will find true happiness, "success", and fulfillment.




GOOD HEALTH & MEDITATION



Hormone imbalance and poor health can affect men and women.

When you don't feel well physically, it's hard to get in touch with your Spirit and to let your Light shine.



purplecurveflower For about 10 years, I suffered from frequent and difficult tension or migraine headaches starting around age 47. I learned that perimenopause can contribute to headaches and starts then or even in one's 30's and can last 10 years.

I realize now that I was starting perimenopause and that my hormones were out of balance and affecting my health in a variety of negative and difficult ways.



To see the tips, books, and websites I found helpful for meditation, health, and other suggestions, see the book heading, "Good Health for Your Body, Mind, Emotions and Spirit" on: RESOURCES. This section is valuable reading for men and women of all ages.




MY HUBBY & THE TURKISH KITTY



As a lifelong learner I spend a lot of time taking and teaching classes in psychic and mediumship development. In addition to learning and teaching, I also enjoy writing, especially when it is inspired and channeled by Spirit, which happens a lot. I also enjoy inspirational speaking. My work is fun for me and very challenging and fascinating at the same time.

I also enjoy creating art (pastels have become my new study), pen and ink sketching, tai chi, comedy, walking in nature, playing the Native American flute, animals, all bodies of water, singing, dancing, swimming, games, discussing philosophy and metaphysics, everything inspirational, and watching my favorite shows on TV (of course!)

I also enjoy bike riding, camping, reading, coffee shops, shopping, making jewelry, festivals, laughing, hanging out with friends, music, spas, shopping (Oh, did I say that already?), eating out, being with my husband and cat, writing, and traveling whether on a day trip somewhere or a learning retreat or vacationing (especially in another country).



mark In September, 2010, my husband, Mark, and I went on a trip of a lifetime. (See photo of Mark and me taken around 2001. Mark's a cutie. Don't you think?!) We visited Venice, Italy for 5 days then took a deluxe 7-day cruise through the Mediterranean followed by a 5-day stay in Istanbul, Turkey.

I hadn't been on a cruise ship since I worked on board Norwegian Cruise Lines in the early 1980's. It had been over 25 years since I had been on a cruise, but this time I was a passenger and got to really enjoy myself! What fun! We sailed from Venice to Istanbul. Sounds like a romance novel, doesn't it? It was a fantastic trip! I highly recommend doing something extraordinary for yourself. It doesn't have to cost a lot to be worthwhile.

There were lots of cats living on the streets in Turkey. The Turkish people were very friendly to the kitties and to us. While eating outdoors at a restaurant late one evening, a little street kitty joined us for dinner. I generously shared my chicken kabob with the hungry cat and gave the sweet kitty my love while it snuggled up against me for warmth. The kitten was so comfortable on my lap that it curled up in a ball and fell asleep!



Hopefully, my CAT named SAMMY who is at home won't watch this cute video and get jealous!

Here's a short video of the TURKISH KITTY and me. (It takes a minute to load, but it's worth seeing.)

Enjoy the journey!

Love and blessings,

Gayle

A SWEET NOTE FROM MY NEIGHBOR



Oh, Gayle, what fond memories you bring to mind! Good job! It really does tell your story.

It made me laugh and cry remembering many of those things you wrote about.

You've really had a wonderful life. I'm glad I've been along for the ride.



angelstatue If I were to write an endorsement for you it would be this....

I have known Gayle since she was quite young. (Gayle was our children's favorite babysitter.)

I spent many hours on my front porch with Gayle asking questions like,

"What is life really about?" and "Where do we go when we die?" and "Do you think this is all there is to life?" What great questions.

Fortunately for us, from there Gayle has gone on to do what Oprah would call, "find her passion"!

It is with very real passion that Gayle shares her spiritual knowledge with us.



Thank you, Gayle, from your lifetime friend,

Connie




Enjoy this fun music/dance video of Up With People featuring music from the 1960's and Motown!

I participated in this wonderful group from 1978-79.

We promoted love, peace, hope, cooperation, and understanding among people of all nations.

It's still a philosophy I believe in and promote today.

Here they are performing at the 1982 Superbowl XVI half-time show!

It's not bad video quality considering how old it is.
