1. Why mix punk rock with being psychic?
Why not? I thought it would be fun. I started this website back in 2010 as a creative outlet during my worst dark night of the soul. I’ve always been unconventional and into the counterculture. It’s hard for me to fit neatly into boxes, so I really don’t even fit 100% into the “punk rock” label. In today’s world, I think living authentically and following your heart and intuition is very punk rock. My desire is to serve unconventional, quirky, creative, and intuitive souls who sometimes don’t resonate with traditional self-help. I start with the premise that you are already awesome, which is quite different from other healers, coaches, and psychics.
2. Isn’t punk rock about being angry?
Sure, maybe it was in the beginning, say in the 1970’s. Some punk rockers chose to be violent and yes, angry. Today, punk rock has evolved into a philosophy of life, not just a fashion style or musical genre. It’s about a mindset of not accepting the status quo. Besides, every now and then, a good release of anger (that doesn’t hurt yourself or others) can be healthy. Music can be very healing that way. I’m not an advocate of stuffing down emotions or covering up feelings, but rather honoring them and using them for growth, learning, healing, and transformation.
3. Do you only work with punk rockers?
No, I work with a variety of people. I tend to attract clients who are unconventional or are rebels, in a positive way. I notice that I attract the following types of clients:
-Healers or coaches or Lightworkers or other psychics and intuitives
-People who resonate with and identify with a musical genre as a lifestyle such as: hippies, rockers, punks, Goths, and rockabillies
-Spiritual rebels—my term for people who consider themselves “spiritual, but not religious”
-Positive rebels—my term for people who desire to make the world a better place through positive means
4. Why would I want to get a reading?
I hear ya! Good for you! It’s good to question things. That shows you’re alive, breathing, and able to think for yourself!
Seriously, here are some benefits of receiving some guidance:
-Freedom to follow your own path
-Clarity and guidance
-Help with making big decisions
-Help learning how to achieve your dreams
-Saving time and money trying to figure things out on your own
-Healing blocks that are holding you back from experiencing all the success you desire
-Hope for the future and being able to create a better one for you
-Support for living life as the real you
-More inner peace
The mass consciousness seems to believe that it is normal to live in confusion with stress, struggle, or strain. Rebel instead by carving out your own path!
5. What is it like to work with you? Do you play punk music in the background? Do you have a crystal ball?
I have a true desire to help you. I also don’t relay scary information (such as information about when you’ll die). I work over the phone or Skype and via email to give readings (I can read energies at a distance, so we don’t have to be in the same room for me to read you!). I sometimes use oracle and/or tarot cards, but mostly I get my information from clairvoyance (means “clear seeing”) and clairaudience (means “clear hearing”). These are fancy terms for psychic skills. Don’t get caught up in the methods—they are just the tools. Cards or other methods hold no special powers. Energy and intention are my main tools to connect with Spirit and to bring you useful guidance and messages.
By the way, no, I don’t play punk music in the background during our session together. This seems like it would rather impolite of me.
6. Tell me my name, what I ate for breakfast, and the name of my dog that just died.
Oh, please! This is called Test the Psychic. It is definitely not cool with me! It’s a waste of both of our time. I prefer to relay messages and guidance from your guides and divine helpers that is both useful and practical. Not even some of the big-time famous psychics get details such as names, etc.
7. Do you honor all paths? How do you feel about religion?
Yes, I honor most paths. If it’s a positive philosophy that is all-inclusive, meaning that everyone is loved and accepted, I’m all for it. I tend towards being more spiritual than religious. I don’t ever try to convince anyone of any belief or belief system. This would not honor your free will. Plus, I find it rather annoying when others try to “convert” me in some way about the best way to live. The best way is what works best for you. I encourage you to defer to your own guidance and path’s wisdom in making decisions. I’m a big believer in free will. I don’t believe that many things in life are set in stone. In my world, they are flexible and fluid. You can change most of your destiny, in my humble opinion. Regarding readings, I always tell you to only take what resonates and toss aside the rest. This is to honor you and your process.
8. Are you professional?
Yes, I consider myself to be professional in my behavior and approach to readings. I’ve worked in the legal and health fields in the past, so ethics and professionalism are important to me. Although punk rock has an edgy image, I believe in the following:
-Keeping your information confidential
-Honoring your free will (I don’t tell you what to do or how to live)
-Empowering you with positive information
-Respecting and honoring your unique path
-Helping you to feel safe in working with me on such a personal level
-Creating a healing energy or space for you as the client
-Providing you with resources and tools to move forward
-Fostering your trust in your own intuition, rather than a dependence on me
-Being honest with you in a compassionate, loving way
9. What if I can’t afford to get a reading with you?
I have some sliding scale and discounted options if you have true financial need or hardship, but don’t B.S. me (I am psychic, you know). Contact me for more information on this.
10. Who do you think started the musical genre of punk rock?
Okay, I get asked this a lot. People in New York say it was the New York Dolls and the Ramones who started it all. People in Great Britain say it was The Clash and the Sex Pistols. Here’s my answer: It was the MC5 and Iggy and the Stooges in Detroit in the late 1960’s. These guys inspired most of the original punk rockers. Plus, I was born and raised in Detroit area, so this has to be my answer. (I’d give this answer though if I lived elsewhere, however.) I’d also love to give a shout out to the proto-punk band, Death who came out of Detroit in the 1970s and were rediscovered and featured in a documentary called, “A Band Called Death
11. Who are your favorite spiritual teachers?
There are too many to list. If you get to know me, I’m sure you’ll discover this. I prefer to allow you to find your own teachers. I don’t mind sharing resources, however. If you need some guidance about who is out there, I’m happy to share links with you or book titles, etc. to get you started.
12. Why have you taken so many classes if you’re a natural born psychic?
I believe everyone is a natural born psychic. The thing is, I enjoy learning and growing, as well as meeting likeminded people. So, I really enjoy classes. I don’t like to stay stuck or stagnant. Education rocks my world and I’m so blessed to have studied with some very wonderful, wise, loving teachers. Read more about my background here: http://punkrockpsychic.com/about/
