My Mediumship journey really began at birth in 1980. Not only did I just happen to “know things”, had weird phenomena take place, easily experienced astral travel and other dimensions in the dtream state, and saw Spirit throughout childhood, but I was born knowing my Mother was going to die tragically premature. From a very young age I knew how she was going to die and it was a matter of urgency. I spent the first 32 years of my life trying to save her from this inevitable ending. I had been screaming it from the rooftops as a kid making my family aware that something was very wrong. Over the years my abilities were diminished as I had no real support from home or extended family, a hard time fitting in with all things “normal”, and a rather difficult time conforming to school. In order to get on in society, shutting down was the only option.
In 2013, tragedy struck which forced a reawakening and a very painful reopening of my gifts. In November 2016, my pre-formative Mediumship “training” began. This training led me to a mediumship event in New York that took place in June 2017, where I had a chance meeting with a sitter where I did my first *official* blindfolded mediumship reading ever. In that moment, my life changed. I spent the summer in Lily Dale, New York working with various teachers as well as taking ongoing workshops and classes with teachers such as Lisa Williams, John Holland, Sharon Ann Klingler, Sandra Ann Taylor, James Vaan Praagh, Thomas John, Mavis Patilla, Collin Bates and a handful of others. Just a few short months later, in September 2017 I met a teacher from The Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, England, Andy Byng, and began a more formal mentorship program over the next year-plus. After developing a beginner’s foundation with Andy, I moved on from him and entered into more advanced multi-mentorship program(s) with Tony Stockwell. With thirty five+ years of experience, he too teaches at Arthur Findlay, but with such an extensive background and travel schedule, he’s not just restricted to the college. I finally feel like I found my one great teacher with Tony! I’ve delved into trance work with him, and right now in 2020-21 I’m currently enrolled in three year-long mentorship programs that run parallel to each other, yet integrate beautifully together. They are The Advanced Spirit Worker, Psychic Detection, and private 1:1 mentorship. It will be a nice feeling to receive certificates for all of them upon completion. My training and development has grown by leaps and bounds since working with Tony and I always look forward to our private calls and class sessions.
