Though she is now also a professional animal communicator, the majority of her career life has been spent counseling individuals, families, and children in the Los Angeles area.


I was at the county fair with my family when one of those crazy fortune tellers stopped me to give me this book. She told me I would need it to maintain harmony in my household. I was sure she was just trying to con me out of some money, but when I turned to answer a question my daughter had asked, the fortune teller just disappeared. About a week later, the problems started. 

You see, I've always had a bit of a latent psychic ability. It first manifested when I was just a small child and my mother was giving me a bath. I believe hitting my head by falling off the top bunk of our bunk bed was the start of my psychic abilities. The bump on the noggin clearly knocked something loose. Anyway, as my mother tells it, she was giving me a bath that evening and thinking to herself, "You're supposed to stop yourself before you fall off the bed," to which I said "But how can I stop if I'm sleeping?" She hadn't spoken aloud, and yet I knew what she was thinking. 

There have been other times when my psychic abilities have surfaced as well. I have a tendency to know how many jelly beans are in those jars people are always asking you to guess how many jelly beans they hold. And once I even frightened an author by telling her I could see her, and then describing her outfit to her. My abilities are not always 100% accurate. For instance, I had Ben Carson making it to the final four in the Republican primaries, and he dropped out just shy of achieving it (leaving the Republicans with four men to choose from with his exit from the race.) 

It never occurred to me to care how my husband would handle my psychic abilities, or even that I should tell him about them. I mean, if I'm going to be able to read his mind and know when he's lying to me, I don't want him to have warning of that so that he can clear his thoughts and shit. My abilities would be useless then. This book doesn't really address my situation however, because as I said, my psychic abilities manifested in my childhood. I've had them for way longer than my husband, so there isn't as much for him to deal with. I think I'll keep it around in case they start to grow in the future however, since that may be cause for concern. 

I'm thinking of a rating between 1 and 5. If you too are psychic, you'll know what it is.
