When someone asks you ‘what do you do for a living?’ – How do you respond?
I respond with the truth: I’m a spiritual medium. If they aren’t familiar, I go on to explain that I have the ability to communicate with dead people, angels and guides, acting as a bridge between this world and the spirit world.
What’s your earliest memory of reading?
I remember being a little over six years old and reading books to my baby brother, acting like I was his teacher and thinking he totally understood me. Ha!
If you could encourage young people to read one book in particular, what would it be?
I would highly encourage young people to read A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.
What is the worst job you’ve ever had?
My worst job was definitely whilst working in retail, particularly working at The Gap and later Abercrombie and Fitch.
Do you read as much as you’d like to?
No, not nearly enough.
What books do you feel are important reading for people on your career path?
I think this is a great list of books for anyone on a similar path as mine:
The Lightworkers Way by Doreen Virtue,
Many Lives, Many Master by Brian Weiss,
Journey of Souls by Michael Newton,
Opening to Channel by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer,
The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav,
Practical Intuition by Laura Day.
Yes! A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson. This book is based on the teaching of A Course in Miracles, and it’s always been a great reminder to choose love over fear in my day to day life.
What book have you recommended the most to friends and family?
I have recommended Journey of Souls by Michael Newton to countless people.
What’s your favourite genre of book?
My favorite genre is self-help.
What do you think a world without books would be like?
I think the world would be uninspiring and empty without books!
Is there an author whose writing you’re such a fan of, that you’ll read everything they release?
Yes! I would read anything written by Brene Brown.
Do you think digital books will ever completely replace real books?
I sure hope not! While I love the ease and convenience of digital books, there’s something special about holding a book in my hands and I prefer to read from a hard copy.
What book do you feel humanity needs right now?
The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. This is a book on how to transcend the ego and realize the true self, surrendering to life’s flow and fulfilling your soul’s purpose.
What is the book that you feel has had the single biggest impact on your life?
The books that have had the biggest impact on my life are The Conversations with God series by Neale Donald Walsh. These were the first books I read on channelling when I first realized my ability to connect with spirits.
I would also include:
The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer,
Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Gerry Hicks,
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.
And of course, my own books Spirited, Awaken the Spirit Within, and What the Dead Have Taught Me About Living Well.
What books or subject matter do you plan on reading in the next year?
If you were to write an autobiography – what would it be called?
Living with the Dead and the Constant Party in My Head!
