Why This Blog?

/ Photo by Dano /

I have a secret confession to make: In the past, I was shy about revealing that I’m a psychic. I’d say I’m a ‘consultant’ on rental applications, and at social gatherings. My family wasn’t even aware that I am a psychic and I’d been working in this field for more than twenty years!

I decided to step out and make a leap on behalf of many people who hesitate to share their intuitive experiences with others, even those closest to them. I created this blog as a meeting place where we can interact and learn together, and declare our deep appreciation of the intuition, the spiritual, and the sacred.

I call this blog “The Psychic Life.” I don’t view a psychic as a person with extraordinary abilities. The word psychic is an adjective for — a way of seeing — perceptive, seeing beyond facades and masks, seeing the relationship between things, and discovering layers of meaning.

This blog gives you an insider’s view of how I look at life. The conclusions or observations I make are not absolute. Pay more attention to how I see, and you’ll have new eyes. Make your own conclusions and nurture your own insights.

In an interview, (see “On Soul, Shadow, and the American Psyche”) psychologist, author, and founder of the Human Potential Movement, Jean Houston tells the story of how she had to have eye surgery, which led to insights on the state of our culture:

“So, I had to have a cataracts operation and have a new lens put in. Now I think I see reasonably well. But this whole thing about cataracts made me think of how we really live life in a state of cataracts. We see and feel and know through the world very, very dimly. The cataracts come through habits, family, schooling, and just the sheer experiences of life that build up so much scar tissue.”

What is the first mission of this blog? — To teach you new ways of seeing, to refresh your eyes and your vision, and nudge you closer to potentials and possibilities.

Blog Mission

  • To teach you how to trust your own intuition and develop your own sense of authority. To trust yourself and your own instincts is real power.
  • To consolidate educational resources (intuition tips, newsletters, forum) from my New Vision Website into a one-stop hub for you on the intuition.
  • To encourage more open discussion on spiritual topics. There are still taboos about discussing spiritual and mystical experiences. I’ve seen some real progress since the 80s, but I still hear people saying, I wouldn’t tell this to my spouse, friends, or family.
  • To provide a community alternative to the Intuition Training Program. The apprenticeship program is focused, one-on-one, and requires a long-term commitment.

This blog serves as a virtual school with a range of educational opportunities. You can set your own pace and choose the program, online class, or educational resource that best suits you.

Welcome — walk through these doors — be yourself, and join in!

    Hi Michelle,
    I was the same way you were! I didn’t want to tell anyone I was psychic and could see and hear spirits either! The first time I told my sister in law what I do, she said she had some abilities too, but she would rather tell people she is gay (which she is not) than tell people she is psychic! LOL That pretty much sums it up doesn’t it?

    It is such a joy to help people though, not only with readings, but some who email me to ask how to develop their own gifts. That’s what we’re here for!

    Your blog is beautiful.
    Lots of love and light,
    Beth Berry

  2. Hi Beth,
    Thank you for your comments and for visiting. Yes, the word psychic — although commonly used now — is still misunderstood. I see it as a way of relating to the world (a way of listening!), a spiritual practice, an inner gift everyone has and can develop further. That is what we are here for — to help others develop these natural abilities and to help dispel any stigma.

    Peace Michele,
    Thanks so much for sharing and opening the door so we can all come out the closet together! (Forgive the pun)
    You are right. It is somewhat challenging to discuss gifts and abilities. But I’m beginning to find the more you talk about them– the more you meet people who share similar gifts and can support you.
    You have my support!
    Infinite Blessings
