Is an intuitive the same as a psychic?

The terms “intuitive” and “psychic” are often used interchangeably today, and there is no consensus on one clear definition of either term.  Unfortunately, some who call themselves “psychic” may or may not have developed their clairvoyance or other “clairs” (see What are “intuitive gifts”), and who see clients solely for financial gain by scamming them, acting as fortune tellers, often asking for money for certain results, spells or cures.  For this reason, the term “psychic” can have a negative connotation.  Among the many definitions of the terms I’ve heard, one that really resonates for me is that intuition is “the voice of the Divine within, the highest part of ourselves communicating with us through the senses”.  I want my work to be positive and uplifting and for that reason have chosen to call myself “intuitive”, which may be not as clear to some, but avoids the negative association with those who are charlatans.  I believe that true intuitives and psychics both have developed their use of clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance, clairaudience, cliargustance and/or clairolfaction.  Whether you choose to speak with an intuitive or a psychic, the most important factor is that he/she truly wants to be of service to you for your highest good.


What are “intuitive gifts” (clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance, clairaudience, clairgustance, clairolfaction)?

These “gifts” are often called “the clairs”.  “Clair” in French means “clear” and they are often referred to as clear seeing, clear feeling/sensing, clear knowing, clear hearing, clear tasting, and clear smelling.  These are the different ways that someone can receive intuitive or psychic information.  I’ve put “gifts” in quotes because these are actually available to everyone, not limited to particularly gifted people; it’s just that some have developed their skills in these areas more than others.  Also, some people have these gifts and use them regularly without thinking they’re anything special.  Common examples are empathy (feeling others’ emotions), a “gut feeling” or a “mother’s intuition”.  Some people have strong abilities in one of the clairs, others have developed two or more of them.

A little more on the “clairs”:

  • Clairvoyance (Clear Seeing):  an inner seeing; the ability to receive flashes of information by seeing images in the mind’s eye; may come in many forms such as pictures, written words, video snippets, scenes, or symbols
  • Clairsentience (Clear Feeling/Sensing): an inner feeling or sensing; the ability to receive information through feelings, emotions, or physical sensations; may also be an increased awareness of energy – of people, places or situations; an ability to feel the emotions or physical sensations of others
  • Claircognizance (Clear Knowing):  an inner feeling that is just known without facts or logic; the ability to receive information through fully formed “knowing” without knowing how you know or why you know it; can be very strong such as an urgent feeling of needing to get out of a place (where then shortly after an accident happens and was avoided by heeding the knowing) or a strong sense of not being able to trust someone without knowing why
  • Clairaudience (Clear Hearing):  an inner hearing without using the physical sense of hearing; the ability to receive information through sounds, music, words or phrases, or noises that are heard inside the head or beside the ear but are inaudible to others; may seem like a voice from beyond this place, time, existence
  • Clairgustance (Clear Tasting):  an inner tasting without actually having anything in the mouth; the ability to receive information through taste; for example, an inner sense that a certain food should not be eaten before it is even tasted by tasting something off in your mouth
  • Clairolfaction (Clear Smelling):  an inner smelling without having the scent nearby; the ability to receive information through smell; for example, smelling a fragrance that a deceased loved one used long after they’ve passed on and with no source of the scent nearby


How do you get your information?

I set an intention for a session and ask that only that which is for the highest good be brought forward.  I  say a prayer, quiet my mind and body and begin to receive information for the client.  This information comes from my guides, the Akashic Records, and the universal energy field (specifically the client’s part of that energy field) through clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance, clairaudience, and occasionally clairgustance.  When I receive specific words, phrases, hear tones, physical sensations, or clear knowing, I can relay those directly to the client.  When I receive pictures, video snippets, scenes, symbols, feelings, emotions, more general physical sensations, or noises, I have to describe those to a client.  Sometimes I sense something that means nothing to me but when described to the client, it is very meaningful to them.


What is your intention?

For each Energetic Soul Reading session, I have a very clear intention of “Illumination, Solutions, Joy!”  I intend to receive information for the client that provides illumination of lessons to be learned, find practical solutions/insight to facilitate growth within those lessons, and to ultimately make space for more Joy! in their lives.


What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are the energetic record of all that has been said, done, and thought over all time for all souls.  All of our souls’ records combined make up the universal energy field.  I like to call it the universal wisdom that energizes our world, or the wisdom of the ages.

This concept has been mentioned throughout history:  as the Hall of Records in ancient Egypt, as the Book of Life in both Jewish and Christian traditions, and as the universal mind or the collective unconscious by the psychiatrist Carl Jung.


Why do you ask for personal information?

I ask for personal information so that I can focus the energy on a specific person, with a specific birthdate, who lives at a specific location, in order to access that particular “slice” of the universal energy field.  I am not a numerologist or astrologist and do not use your personal information to interpret through either of those methodologies.


Why didn’t you answer my question?

Because this information is not coming from me but through me, I don’t have control over the messages received.  Be assured that what came forward was what you needed to hear at this time.  It may not be what you wanted to hear, or an exact answer to your question, but often there is work to be done before the next step can be taken, and so that was the information provided.  Often, the information given was an answer to a much larger life question – or perhaps there was an inner healing needed to make space to move forward.  You will gain the most benefit both during and after the session by trusting that you are getting just what you need at this time, and really mine that information and those feelings that came up for the most learning possible for you now.


Can you see everything about me?

Definitely not.  The only information that will come through is information related to your question or to information that is for your highest good at that time and that is in line with my very clear intention.  Some people fear that participating in this process allows me to see all the things they’ve done ‘wrong’ and that they will be called on the carpet or somehow scolded.  This process is very loving.  Remember it is all based on what is for your highest good, and with a very clear intention of “Illumination, Solutions, Joy!”


Is this religious or against religion in any way?

The Energetic Soul Reading process is not part of any religion.  It can be complementary to most life views and does not require belief in or exclusion from any specific religious practice.  This process is always All Good, All God, All Light.


Do you have to believe in past lives?

A belief in past lives is not necessary to have an Energetic Soul Reading session.  My personal belief is that we are all souls experiencing a human journey and that our goal as a soul is to become enlightened – to recognize and embrace our spark of divinity – to move toward heaven/nirvana/bliss (or however you envision the essence of a higher power).  We are each here to experience our own unique journey filled with lessons along the way. The purpose of those ‘lessons’ is to grow on a soul level.  I also believe that our souls are eternal, even though our bodies perish, and that the lifetime of one physical body is not long enough to become fully enlightened and approach the Divine, so we have numerous chances to grow over lifetimes, each time becoming closer to unveiling our true divine essence.

Often challenges that we have in our lives are a result of energy carried forward or lessons not completed in former lives.  The Energetic Soul Reading healing/clearing process can help to release that energy, create space for further growth, and allow greater freedom.  If your own personal belief does not embrace past lives, that’s ok.  Most of us can see evidence of the energy we are trying to clear in our own present experience of life and that awareness can be used to clear the block.


How does it work?

Before a session, I say a prayer, asking that only that which is for your highest good be brought forward.  The session itself begins with an opening prayer.  Part of it is silent and when it’s concluded, I will ask you what is coming forward for you (see Preparing for a Session).  I then use my intuitive skills to access your part of the universal wisdom and wait for information to begin coming.  Information comes into my head/body – in words, pictures, video clips, symbols, sensations or feelings.  Occasionally, the information also comes as sounds, smells, or taste.  The words are usually pretty easy to relay directly unless they are coming so rapidly that I have to paraphrase.  The pictures, video clips and sensations I have to explain.

Sometimes the information that comes through is in direct response to your questions, other times it addresses some blockage that is keeping you from your greatest expression – that is in line with the intention that what is for your highest good be brought forward.

Often there is old energy that has been held onto and is keeping you from moving forward as you’d like.  If you are ready and willing to release that energy, I will be led to guide you in a short visualization process to clear that energy.  For some people, it is an emotional moment when that energy is cleared and space is opened to live life from a different perspective. (For more information, see What to Expect in a Session)


How long does a session last?

Sessions usually last 45-65 minutes.  I suggest that you clear your schedule for 90 minutes.  It is beneficial to have some time after the session to take in what you have just heard and experienced before going back to your day.  If unwanted energy has been released through a healing process, and an opening has been created, it is so helpful to have a few minutes to jot down your thoughts and impressions and to quietly adjust to a new life view.
