She went on to study the Fourth Way teaching of the Russian philosopher, P D Ouspensky, and the Advaita Vedanta teaching of Shankaracharya Shantanand Saraswati. After several decades of study and practice, she started teaching a combined and updated version of these teachings. But despite frequent and sustained periods of causeless happiness and a sense of oneness, she felt there was still something missing. Finally, she found what she had always been looking for through the Direct Path teaching of Rupert Spira, and his teacher, Francis Lucille. She loves sharing her understanding of this teaching and discussing its application in everyday life with like-minded friends.

In the 1970s, she embarked on an intensive self- and psychic-development quest that has never ended. In addition to developing her own intuition, she specifically studied Tarot and Astrology, becoming an internationally acknowledged expert in both fields. Her first book, “Choice Centered Tarot” (renamed “Every Day Tarot”) was published in 1980, followed by “Choice Centered Astrology” in 1990 and “Choice Centered Relating and the Tarot” in 2000. As is clear from these titles, Gail was a foremother of the movement toward utilizing psychic tools and insights, not as processes for finding fate-oriented predictions but instead as resources for self-empowerment and insightful decision-making. Gail makes her home in Bloomington, Indiana and is available for appointments through www.gailfairfield.com.

Episode 21: Quarantined Tarot Reading & Artist Exchange with Lisa Rawlinson
Wouldn't it be cool to open your mailbox to find an original work of art sent just for you? Lisa Rawlinson's Quarantined Artist Postcard Exchange and her tarot reading-slash-Reiki-imbued-painting are the focal points of today's episode. Lisa pulls four psychedelically themed cards for the collective and I know you'll find them intriguing. Check out Lisa's artwork on my Facebook and IG pages, links are below! https://www.facebook.com/melaniealbertsmedium https://www.instagram.com/clair.circles.spirit.art/ Email me: email@example.com The quote Lisa paraphrased is “Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people.” ~William Butler Yeats About Lisa Rawlinson in her own words: I’m interested in digging in and understanding the world and reality using the act of creating as a means to spur learning, to focus and direct energy, and to investigate the human element and my personal connection to the world and our constantly shifting understanding of it. My translation of these things into a physical work of art or a piece of writing is at once intuitive, conceptual, and visceral. These are inseparable for me. Everything I create reflects the on-going evolution of my personal internal and external exploration; I do not consider my work to be defined by medium, technique, or even at times, style. Informed by my previous career designing educational materials, the card readings I do for myself, and others—as well as wherever my curiosity and experience take me—I work primarily in water-based painting. Writing is also a key component and at times intersects with visual art. I received my BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas in 1995 and was a founding member of Good/Bad Art Collective in Denton, Texas where I remained active until I ultimately choose to pursue my publishing career. In 2016 I "accidentally" began making art again and have since made a deliberate choice to focus my creativity on my own work, which exists both within and outside of the traditional art world. I am also a Reiki Master-Teacher and have a practice that merges card-reading, Reiki, painting, and poetry through my business website Open Window Meditations. While these exist in a different sphere, I consider them to be a vital part of my artistic practice and expression. http://www.openwindowmeditations.com/ http://www.lisarawlinsonart.com/quarantined-artist-postcard-exchange.html

Episode 18: Mind over Matter with Virginia Cattrano
PK is indeed pretty kewl. In today's show, Virginia Cattrano tells some fascinating stories and demonstrates to me how through the power of my mind, I can move matter at a distance. How this is done has fascinated me for years, ever since I levitated, tipped tables, and caused my cell phone to shut down during moments of intense focus. What's going on here? Let's find out and maybe learn how to bend a spoon or two. Check out my results on my Facebook page and Instagram: https://www.facebook.com/melaniealbertsmedium https://www.instagram.com/clair.circles.spirit.art More about Virginia: Virginia Cattrano was born and raised in the Republic of Singapore and immigrated to the United States as a teenager. Six years ago, Virginia discovered her psychic abilities and began wondering about who she was and how her “knowing” developed. Virginia’s studies have taken her to many teachers for training, including studying platform mediumship with Mavis Pitilla, John Holland, Suzanne Giesemann, and Janet Nohavec. In 2019 Virginia’s quest for knowledge brought her to the Rhine Center in Durham, North Carolina. There she learned remote viewing and psychokinesis. She’s passionate about paranormal phenomena—how the unseen unfolds—and working with animals. Virginia and her career law-enforcement husband have been married for over 25 years.

Episode 17: The Reincarnation Principle with Cody Blair
September's new moon episode begins with an introduction to a democratic Spiritualist association and concludes with a past-life reading back to a barbaric time. If you're squeamish, you may want to skip to the end. I feel it's important to include the gory scene Cory describes because it relates to a personal injury I sustained in this lifetime.

During his visit, Darren gives tips on how we can improve our mediumship by being true to who we are as individuals. Find out why it's important not to tick the boxes during your connections.

His gift has taken him to all counties in the UK as well as to Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Germany and Canada, and America as well as offers of work from Denmark and Australia. He has written for and been featured in several well-respected esoteric publications including Two Worlds and Psychic News, and in the last few of years has turned down three offers of work on high profile TV programs, feeling that his work would be seen as purely entertainment and not for its true meaning. He is able to convey messages from the other side; often with such accuracy, there is no doubt that a world exists after this one. His reputation for delivering names, dates, street names, and personal information to identify loved ones has earned him a reputation as a medium of high quality. As well as being able to convey messages from the Spirit World, he sees his work as much more than that. He has a desire to remind people through his own experiences of life, and through his connection to Spirit, that we are all Divine in origin and how we can attune to that source of love to help us to heal. www.darrenbrittain.co.uk @darren.brittain.medium Darren's September 2020 Events: Saturday 5 September - Demonstration with Sheryl Wagner https://www.eventbrite.com/e/an-afternoon-of-mediumship-with-darren-brittain-and-sheryl-wagner-tickets-117858135857?aff=ebdssbeac Saturday 12 September - Demonstration for Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, Edinburgh - Details on their Facebook page Sunday 13 September - Workshop on Understanding the altered states https://www.eventbrite.com/e/understanding-altered-states-with-darren-brittian-tickets-109508942194?aff=ebdssbeac Sunday 20 September - Sunday service for Inner spiritual Centre, New Jersey.

I had no purpose, I had no passion or drive. I had been raised to believe that my only purpose in life was to get married, be faithful to my religion and have children. I found myself with two small children, at the age of 20. Spending my days alone with no friends, no family, no support structure. I was suffering from postpartum depression and did not know it. The doctors back then put women on valium and told them to suck it up. My life fell apart, my husband received full custody of our daughters, and I found myself on a journey of self discovery. I made a lot of mistakes, and by the time I was in my thirties I had discovered that I was a magnet for people with narcissistic tendencies. It would take the next 25 years of soul searching, reading hundreds of books, taking numerous courses, to discover that I was an empath, intuitive healer, Oracle reader; I achieved Reiki Master Teacher status, numerous other courses and certificates in Holistic healing and have added Akashic Soul Practitioner to my skills. During these 25 years I learned how to meditate, connect, and work with my spirit guides, the Angels, the Deva’s of Nature, and work with my Spiritual Advisors daily. The tools I use with clients are meditation, oracle readings, Akashic Soul readings, Reiki Energy healing, Spiritual Mentoring, and a course I created with my Spirit Guides; called “Pathways to the Soul”. The title given to me by my Spirit Guides: Spirit Whisperer of higher consciousness helping people connect to their heart, mind, body, and Soul.

He was a technical trainer for 17 years until he got hit with the economic readjustment in February 2009. People often have tried to put him in the “geek” box, he never quite fit. Instead, they would commonly call Stan an “artistic geek.” Stan is a life-time musician (guitar player/vocalist) and an avid photographer. Combining his skills of technical perfection with a true appreciation of natural beauty, Stan found his passion for wood. When Stan was eight he wandered into his grandfather’s woodworking garage. He was fascinated and he asked his parents if he could have the tools when his grandfather didn’t need them anymore. Unfortunately, the request by the eight-year-old wasn’t taken too seriously and Stan had to wait until he was a teenager and working in a lumber yard to be around the smell of fresh-cut wood again. To Stan, nothing smells better (except perhaps fine dark chocolate). After the lumber yard, Stan started on his career path which somehow excluded wood completely. He found himself working with high tech tools instead of the small ones that turn wood. Stan was reminded of his passion shortly before he lost his job when he visited a relative who makes fine acoustic guitars and also does woodturning in his shop. He fell in love again with the art he had not witnessed since he was a child. This time he didn’t have to ask for the tools. He purchased his own and now enthusiastically engages his creative abilities on a daily basis. It appears all things have fallen into perfect alignment and the “artistic” Stan finally has the time to create and pursue his aspiration to work with wood. HIs natural perfectionism and his photographic eye for detail allow him to see the uniqueness of the grain in each individual block of wood that he touches. Stan takes what nature has provided and expounds on its beauty.

Episode 003: Explore the Power of Play
In today's episode, I share my journey in becoming a psychic and spirit artist through the power of play. Part of learning to trust your intuition is to let yourself be vulnerable and surrender to the information you receive in the moment. As a little kid, I was allowed to have free rein and explore my surroundings by tuning into my inner world and trusting the information I received there. How about you? Did you have time to let your mind wander and gather information about your environment as you grew up? Now. do you allow yourself downtime to have such useful experiences? This episode gently reminds you that the power of play means tuning into your intuition and applying what you learn to your life.

The first 22 people to both like and share my social media post of this and/or my premiere episode will be entered into a drawing for a psychic art sitting with me. https://www.facebook.com/melaniealbertsmedium https://www.instagram.com/clair.circles.spirit.art/ In today’s playdate, psychic and spiritual medium Pam Berman visits and we exchange a one-card reading to learn a little more about each other. Here’s Pam’s story: “I was diagnosed with a life-threatening genetic disease 13 years ago. Polyposis causes my body to form multiple polyps. I was terrified at first, but my diagnosis was the greatest blessing of my life as it was the catalyst for my spiritual awakening. I had always been a religious woman, but I had no experience of being truly spiritual. My illness was the doorway to my deep knowing that there was more to life than what we perceive with our physical senses. I began going to an online spiritual site. There I met a woman who is a Reiki master and an amazing healer. She introduced me to healing and self-healing, and she told me that there is nothing that cannot be healed. My teacher told me that when our body has created something, no matter what the dis-ease or condition may be, our body can UN-create it as well. Remember this! I didn't believe my healing teacher then, as my understanding was that genetics cannot be altered. But she was right! I began self-healing in 2008, every single day. I was scheduled to have a complete colectomy in March of 2009. Just before my surgery, my surgeon took a few minutes to look at my most recent scans. He came back to me and said-"I have good news for you. There are no polyps on the left side of your colon. So if it's ok with you, I will only remove the right side." I was overjoyed, and I decided to train first as a spiritual healer and then as a Reiki practitioner so that I could give back the healing I had so miraculously received. I am now a level 3 Usui Reiki Master. I also explored mediumship and tarot card readings. I am blessed to now have a beautiful relationship with Spirit that is based on mutual love and trust. I have taken several mediumship courses over the years and attended workshops. I am so excited now to bring my clients the joy and healing that comes from being reunited with their loved ones in Spirit. My card readings provide guidance and insights that also lead to healing with understanding and clarity. Healing is the basis of all that I do!” Pam’s website: https://www.pambermanmedium.com/ Pam’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/theCroneandtheRaven/

Spread the word! The first 22 people to both like and share my social media post of May 28 (this first episode) will be entered into a drawing for a psychic art sitting with me. https://www.facebook.com/melaniealbertsmedium https://www.instagram.com/clair.circles.spirit.art/ In today’s playdate, I meet with medium Paul Challenger who lives near Cardiff, Wales in the United Kingdom. At about age 21, Paul was introduced to Aikido and the concept of ki, “universal energy” and “mind over matter.” He began practicing yoga, learning about the chakras, and the power of spiritual healing. Paul was an agnostic at age 35 when he had his first private reading with a medium. He writes that “the energy of my grandfather (who died in 1941) walked straight into my heart chakra and filled me with the most incredible feeling of love. The feeling was so overwhelming that I burst into tears, so the medium asked him to step back, he did so, and I stopped crying. I was converted to Spiritualism in that instant.” In addition to unfolding his mediumship, Paul studied spiritual healing and has developed a style of healing using guided visualizations in addition to energy work. He is married to the medium and mentor Margaret Challenger who holds occasional mediumship workshops on www.snui.org.uk. My Patreon account was created for supporters of this podcast. It’s brand new! To celebrate with gratitude, the first 11 monthly donors will be invited to an intimate, online mediumship/psychic art circle hosted by me. More perks to come!
