A PSYCHIC READING AS ALTERNATIVE COUNSELING.

Many of my clients have benefited and healed past pains from our psychic readings.  

Have you, had psychic readings that gave you nformation t help you heal past pains and make positive life changes?

In my book The Timeless Counselor (first edition titled A Professional Psychic Reading as Alternative Counseling) I've included a chapter about how psychic readings can be helpful with your therapy sessions. A reading can get to the root of your pain and advance your healing even more so.  I've had clients in psychotherapy that take the recording of our reading session to play in their therapy session to heal even further.


Excerpt from my book - a complete consumer's guide to a psychic reading: The Timeless Counselor: 
People have been interested in the mysteries of the power of the mind for a long time. Human behavior has been, and still is, an interesting study. In the late 19th Century, a new type of counselor came on the horizon––psychotherapist Dr. Sigmund Freud––whose methods were based on a scientific approach to understanding the way the mind works. The new approach would in time, prove to help many that suffered from mental illnesses. The psychotherapist’s goal is to help the patient recognize what, in their subconscious mind, is preventing him/her from realizing a mental and emotional balance. A patient can be re-educated through a series of sessions with the therapist. Patients with less severe mental or emotional disorders can seek help from non-medical counselors, psychologists, clinicians, and family marriage counselors, etc.
What is the role of a successful counselor? A recent survey revealed the success of psychotherapists was based on their ability to have good rapport with their clients, to be good listeners and to show genuine care for the patient. Studies also have shown that the success of a patient’s recovery or balance was the patient herself and not based on the counselor’s abilities or educational degrees.

LOVE & LOSS & HOPE FOR LOVE: A THEME IN MY NOVELS

 In both my novels The Skye in June and City of Redemption - love plays an important role: the passion of it,  the loss and pain, life dreary without love and the hope to regain it. Although very different in plot, love runs through the themes. They are not romance novels because there is so much more in them.

In "City of Redemption" the main character, Liz,  is in pain from the great loss of her husband who had been her only love since they were young teens: ' "Liz wasn’t going to let Cailean get away from her. For a couple of months they strolled in parks, holding hands and kissing or when her mother was out, spent time in her cramped apartment. Liz, at fifteen, and nineteen-year-old Cailean, fell in love. When he landed a good job, he asked her out on a proper date. Liz was thrilled when he revealed they were going to hear Ruby Murray, a popular singer, who sang one of Liz’s favorite songs, “You Are My First Love.” Theirs was a dream date come true. To Liz’s ecstatic surprise, they sat in the front row. The song’s words touched her heart. The singer sang about how she and her lover would make their love last forever. Liz believed the message was meant for her and Cailean. Later, after the excitement of it all, the young couple quietly made love in Cailean’s boardinghouse room––the first time for either of them. Nine months later, Patrick was born."  5 star reviews at Amazon.com 

  Cathy MacDonald isn't happy in her marriage to Jimmy MacDonald, but they have children and her religion says no divorce! Once Cathy had a love, now gone.  'The Skye in June  “I can see your future. Love beckons to you,” the woman said, motioning to Cathy’s empty teacup. The gypsy lifted the cup close to her face and circled it around from the left to the right. Her dark eyes peered at the leaves clinging inside it. The loud sounds of people and trains caused them to huddle close. Cathy heard her say something about crossing a gold bridge and love. After a moment of listening, she gave the gypsy a few coins and sent her on her way. She then hoisted her heavily packed handbag on her shoulder and bent down to pick up the suitcase. A hand reached it before she did.
 

“Let me help you with that,” the red-haired man in the Navy uniform said in the soft voice of a Scot from the Highlands.
 

“Oh! Thank you,” Cathy said, pleased at his attention.
 

“I’m Malcolm Macleod. And you are?” he asked. 

The loud noise of trains pulling into the station drowned out her answer."

INSPIRATION: RUSTY DENNIS HAD MY BACK

Rusty and me, 1985, Pacifica, CA

Who has inspired you to venture further with your talents and abilities?

One of my greatest, supportive and inspiring persons was Rusty Dennis. 





Rusty Dennis mother of Rocky whose story was portrayed in the movie, "Mask" and I spoke often about spirit communication. We made contact with Rocky, her youngest son's spirit, and later after her eldest son, Joshua, passed we contacted him. Rusty would have loved how popular my latest book, "How to Talk With Spirits: Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts" has become.

Joshua and I met at Rusty's home on Mission Street in San Francisco. When Joshua became very ill and was hospitalized Rusty and I went to visit and give him a healing energy.  The little time we spent together I learned he was a kind and gentle man.

Rusty was a great supporter of my metaphysical and psychic work. She had taken several classes from me; Tarot 1 and 2 as well as ESP Development 1 and 2. She encouraged me to bring my psychic talents and teaching skills south to Los Angeles, California where she lived. Once there, Rusty introduced me to many of her friends to set-up lectures and readings.  She truly was a gifted psychic reader.

Rusty was one hellva woman! One tough lady and a real kick! A few times we clashed, but she was only testing me to she what she could get away with. Not only were we both Geminis, had a great interest in and studied the metaphysics and occult, we both had motorcycles, loved trucks, faster cars, and younger men!  

Once while I was visiting her in Los Angeles, CA we were driving to a psychic readers event in her VW bug and got into a disagreement.  It was over windblown hair. Because it was so hot and with no air conditioner in the car, I opened the window. Rusty didn't want her hair to get messed up (yes, she was vain). She demanded I close the window. I said, "No." She came back with "Get out the car." I said, "Pull over."  In LA there's nas nary a bus and we were miles from her house. She laughed loudly at my retort.  Yes, she liked that I was tough too. We drove on and soon were talking about other things than messy hair dos.  

Below is her endorsement for my book first published as "A Professional Psychic Reading as Alternative Counseling" reprinted in 2011 under the title,  The Timeless Counselor: The Best Guide to a Successful Psychic Reading:

"I have been inspired by June’s ability to awaken the awareness of many people and to train them to use their metaphysical gifts productively. Her readings and classes allowed me to recognize my own gifts and taught me how to utilize them effectively. Now I successfully do reading and healing for others. June is a loving and knowledgeable person. We could all benefit through the information she shares with us."

We read at Whole Life Expo SF and later in LA at a psychic fair/event we lectured and did readings.

There was always plenty of laughter, and I received great insights from her readings.
Rusty didn't complain. She didn't feel sorry for herself. When people would offer their sympathies for the "lost of her sons", Rusty would say, "They're not lost. They're dead. I know where they are."

A mother of sons herself, she liked kids and enjoyed having my son hang out with us (see the photo to the right.)

Rusty remains ALIVE! In spirit - be bold, be tough, be yourself and she was to the end.

 I know you love that people remember you, you ham! Ha ha. I can hear her laughing with me.

Yes, Rusty inspired me to stay adventurous, to enjoy the wild ride of life with humor and boldness.

BOO & OTHER THINGS SPIRITS SAY



BOO! Did you hear that? Ghosts, for real? Do The Dead Walk Amongst Us?

Perhaps during a psychic reading you asked about communicating with a loved one who passed on to the other world - heaven or Nirvana or where? 

Many people have asked me over my forty years as a psychic medium (and working with law enforcement) because they want to keep communication alive when a loved one passes on to the other world. Does communication really happen?  

Well, certainly many people think so. Look at the popularity of TV shows with medium John Edwards, Sylvia Browne and the latest, The Long Island Medium

There are several different ways mediums/psychic readers communicate with spirit entities. A S√ČANCE is one way. I discuss this in my book, The Timeless Counselor: The Best Guide to a Successful Psychic Reading
Please be advised that not all spirits communicate when petitioned and why is that?
Join me on radio KOW tomorrow.  I'll will talk about why you'd want to communicate and why would the spirit want to as well as how to communicate with the dead tomorrow Tuesday 2/4/14 from 9 to10 a.m. PST.  Call-in your questions 707-874-1073.
