How I Got Started
My first impulse to pay for psychic learning happened at age 21. Typical of someone being drawn to this energy, I was in a “transition stage”, i.e. just beginning studies at a large University. Lots of unusual events happened prior to this including meeting a psychic, attending a polytechnic that was built on top of a graveyard and reading Jane Robert’s Seth Speaks book. (Strangely enough I had picked up that book off my mother’s bookshelf at age 11, but did not read it until 10 years later which was, by the way, pretty complicated stuff.)
I got a reading with a woman who told me about beings in the other dimensions, how Earth was giving birth in 2012 and said she saw me in Hawai’i writing a book. This was just… radical. I was so elated and although I actually did travel to Hawai’i four years later, as guided by a different life coach to take a “gap year” on a farm, I didn’t write a book on the Hawaiian islands until nine years later. Yes, Starseed Survival was birthed while sitting on the ground at the airport and under a tree on a beach in Kauai!
While my online psychic teachers taught me not to predict (it is against U.K. law, and as I was living in northern Europe I took heed), I know several people have the gift of seeing the future. You’ll tune into different psychic gifts as you continue to practice. Some will be amplified more than others.
Over time, my self-doubt diminished. I got some oracle cards and practiced Reiki I and II, asking people to be my guinea pigs at a restaurant hotel I worked at in England one summer! At first, it seemed like I was making everything up, but there were too many confirmations proving I was not. The coincidences that happened weren’t just a by-product of an overactive imagination! You cannot have a group of people see Saint Germain in the same vision, then go home to your Ascended Masters book falling on the floor opening to the Saint Germain page, then pulling an Ascended Masters oracle card that comes up Saint Germain all in one evening. Just…no!
Why People Are Drawn to You
Through resonance and spirit guides, people will actually be sent to you. I cannot believe ’till this day, how many of my clients have said, “I don’t know why I’m drawn to you, but I felt I had to contact you.” Yes, there will be sensitive people sensing your light and good intent. Also, your business angels will whisper in their ears and your advertising angels will push you to make your presence known so those important people find you. Spirit is at work when it comes to serving others, so rest assured you will be guided in more ways than you possibly can imagine right now.
Your experience and credentials are also looked at. Although most of the best psychics, healers, channels and intuitives got known by word-of-mouth, these days you will have a visual display somewhere if you intend to reach people outside of your local town. Make sure you are happy with yourself. You don’t need a P.H.D. to be taken seriously, but if it’s part of your mission to connect with people with that kind of background, then mention it! You will have to come out of the spiritual closet for this.
Recall, the internet and travel technology are gifts. If it weren’t for airplanes (portal tech even), e-mail and telepathy, we would live in an unconnected world. (Sidenote: starseeds are also supposed to work world-wide as each and every person is born with a world task for their soul’s learning.)
Pricing is also a big thing for New Age/alternative people. I have heard people tell me that I should give them a $150 crystal for free because their mother got cancer and I wouldn’t be a true starseed if I didn’t do that. Look, it’s not right to bleed your energy and resources out if someone demands that of you. Sure, the energy is pure and unconditional when you do gifting, but you don’t take your Macbook to the repairman and say “do this for me for free or you are not genuine.” The same respect you show a plumber is the same respect you deserve as a person deeply involved in the wellbeing of others!
The best part about being of service to others, though, is we have soul family members who have contracted to meet us in this lifetime and share Earthly experiences with us. Doing your work will attract them to you. It’s important to remember you might have signed an etheric contract to commune with them. Always remember that!
4 Tools You Need
First, if you want to work as a psychic, you will need a tool. Although you may be “above” that, just having that medium (no pun intended) will help you to focus and clear the mind. Sonia Choquette started using playing cards when she was 15, you can read about that in her first book Diary of a Psychic. I hate to spoil but she was contacted by Pleiadians at one point, just f.y.i.
Second, social media is your best friend if you are going grassroots or are already established and need to expand your market. I started off with Facebook and on some occasions posted in up to 80 groups in one day. Most baby boomers are using FB, same as your friends from college. Millennials are all over cyberspace so expect them to find you! The younger generation is looking at videos, so if you felt the nudge to be on YouTube, Vimeo, Periscope, Meerkat or Instagram Live, by all means start putting that down in your notebook-of-ideas. People need to know about you so you get paid.
Third, Paypal is the perfect way to get started if you are working online. Read my article “A $1000 Starseed Side-Hustle” to go more into depth with action steps. Even tonight, in just one relevant Facebook group, you can offer to do 10-20 readings for free and I guarantee you you will be instantly booked. After you find a common thread where people can relate (ask them even, “does this resonate”), offer sessions promoting that skill for a comfortable, humble price. Then get testimonials, but do not display peoples’ full names without their permission or they will get mad! Should you mess up or do something they feel uncomfortable with (by accident, like being scary), remember to apologize and you are good to go. Remember to call this work “entertainment purposes only” and do not claim to heal (that is unlawful)! Have a terms and conditions page.
Last but not least, get a good digital camera or smartphone because people need to see who you are on your landing page. In other words, having a well-lit, smiling photo with spiritual items is key. That will take you a lot further than a no-face, fake hustla’ name page with a picture of a 5th Avenue psychic somebody googled.
Building Continual Confidence
Future investments means buying dingy old spiritualist books in the middle of the jungle, paying for online courses and teaming up with other sensitives. Have an open mind with it all. At some point you will have enough original content, credence and occult skill to generate revenue to pay for advertising (on websites, in journals and on flyers)! You will have business cards, referrals, new friends and lots of Akashic knowledge (hopefully)!
Hold onto your thinking cap, too, because the world you thought you lived in will also change *wink wink*.
In this blog article, you have been given physical action steps to take right meow to begin manifesting spiritual energy onto the Earth plane. You are being handed the torch (or scroll) to step up, into your work and get out there to serve others who need you! Others have done it before you and many will follow in your footsteps. If, however, you are still in doubt, look at the clock. Did it say 11:11? This means it’s time to listen to your angels. You know what to do.
