I thought I would take a moment and write down how this crazy intuitive journey began for me. Last March after a family crisis my wife Holly and I were devastated. We tried some counselling but we didn't think that it helped very much. Our daughter Lauren and Holly decided to try going to an Intuitive Circle and Holly found this to be very helpful as she was able to get advice and messages from her spirit guides. The following week Lauren had gone home and Holly asked if I would go to the circle with her. I agreed. It was held by a psychic called Linda Pynacker and the night I went, there were about eight ladies and myself. I read and agreed to a waiver that asked me to have an open mind and to participate when I felt I had something to say. Linda started with a meditation where we were walking in a forest and we met an animal that may or may not have a message for us. In my case it was a Fox. Then we walked a little further and met one of our spirit guides. In my case it was a rather Roman looking man in a chariot named Randy. We continued on further and met a loved one who had passed on. In my case it was my Mom. Once the meditation was over we all took a few moments to write down what we remembered in a journal or a pad of paper. Afterwards we took turns reading our journey out loud to the group. While you were reading Linda would give you additional insights as to what your images represented. Also anyone else could also jump in and give their insights into what they thought your meditation meant. Well suddenly I was picking up on everyone's readings and by the end of the night I was talking as much or more than Linda. While I was doing this Holly kept giving me strange looks. Afterwards she said to me, "Who are you?" and "What are you trying to do, be a smart ass and make fun of the whole evening?" I said, "No, I was just doing what I was told!!" It was an amazing night and I was really confused so later that week I had a private session with Linda to find out what was going on. She explained that I had had a gift given to me and that often a person's psychic abilities aren't revealed until they have gone through some personal challenge or drama. She also explained that I wasn't clairvoyant but in fact clairsentient. Which means I get my messages through using feelings and empathy. This is how my journey began.
