Introduction To Who I AM

Hello and welcome to Illuminated Heart Network!

Divinely inspired, I am a professional empathic psychic medium who lives in beautiful Northern California. For years I have read, felt and interpreted energy which translates into images, words, dreams, music and colors to relay messages from your Loved One's and Spirit Guides. 

My first psychic medium experience occured when I was five years old. Since then varied psychic and mediumistic experiences have been a normal part of my life. Listed below are forms of extrasensory sensory perceptions (ESP) I experience including a brief description. Some abilities are more active than others and a few are not listed because they fall so closely under one of the others noted below that I feel they qualify as more of a sub-category.

Please note when I refer to the five senses below I am referring to: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.

  • Clairvoyance ~ is to extend beyond the five senses to "see" an object, person, location or physical event through extrasensory impressions, symbols or mental images which are perceived without using the physical eyes and without restriction to time or space.
  • Clairsentience ~ is to physically "feel" the physical and emotional states of others, ailments, etc. without using the five senses or any outer stimuli related to the feeling or information. 
  • Clairempathy ~ is to psychically "tune in" to the emotional experience of a person, place or animal.
  • Claircognizance ~ is to "know" via psychic knowledge about a person, place, object or event without having any contact or knowledge of the person, place, object or place.
  • Clairaudience ~ is to perceive sounds, words or extrasensory noise from the spiritual or ethereal realm without the aid of the physical ear. 
  • Medium ~  senses and reads the presence of spiritual energies relevant to the person being read.
  • Precognition ~ is to "dream" about a future event while having a gut feeling something is about to happen.
  • Premonition ~ is a "sense" of what is to come that something is about to happen, especially something unpleasant. 
  • Psychometry ~the ability to read the history and energy from objects.

When people meet me they say I am a kind and compassionate healer. In fact, I have been given the nickname "Sunshine" by one particular individual which I love! As a professional it was my goal to get certified before truly marketing my services online. Meaning I had to go through a study course and pass multiple blind readings with people (referred to as sitters) who rated and scored me based on the level of evidential information I provided and varied other criteria. All sitters were selected from out of state and were not allowed to give me any information except for their first name so it was an unbiased assessment which was my  preference the less I knew about the person the better.  I am grateful to be able serve others in this capacity and have an immense level of respect and love for Spirits who deliver messages using me as a conduit to reach those who need to hear a message.

Every bit of love, hope and light given to the world spreads faster than fear, pain, hate or sadness. One of the gifts of having empathic psychic mediumistic abilities is that I am constantly learning about other people, the world around me and myself. Every bit of knowledge I gain I apply to my readings in order to instruct others on their own unique journey. I dedicate time daily to appreciate and give thanks for all the precious things in life that I feel could be easily overlooked. Life is precious so why wait! Shine your beautiful light today! You don't have to wait for others to illuminate you!

Blessings, Love and Happiness to you!

why I Choose to Give psychic Readings

Through the years I have had many different psychic experiences but over the last few years my abilities have ramped up in a way I was not expecting. I have always been pulled to God, Angels, Spirits, Ascended Masters and the Metaphysical. Spiritually I am drawn to this work and have always known I am here to help others. One sign after another has encouraged me to continue down this road. Although, it took me awhile for me to get this is a calling not just a hobby. It's how I hope to heal and inspire others.

What started me on this journey was a hobby I developed for reading Oracle and Tarot cards. I was surprised at how accurate the readings were. Even more surprising was when I stopped using the cards because I no longer needed them. Please know I do not take credit for the messages, your loved ones deserve that credit as I am simply the conduit through which Spirit provides a message. However, I do feel a certain amount of validation when someone looks at me surprised and asks:

  • How did you know that?
  • I haven't told anyone about that?!
  • You are so right on that what you said gave me goosebumps!

I love receiving a follow up call or email validating what I told the person! Each reading varies depending on the person being read, there are similarities but it is unique to the person being read as to who and what information comes through. Plus, in my experience Spirit has a way of letting you know what you need to know, versus what you want to know. 

There are plenty of websites that offer free readings. All you have to do is type in a question and click on a few cards and viola instant card reading!  I have nothing against those sites but I prefer a more personal, intuitive reading that can only be provided by a person. Over the years things have become so automated in our world, which is great in a lot of ways but I prefer to connect with someone one on one so I can provide specific insight for them. I, nor anyone else can fix another person, but I can deliver messages of love and share the knowledge I've gained over the years.

  • Universal Wisdom Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno
  • Wisdoms of the Hidden Realms Deck by Colette Baron-Reid
