Divination - Old School

Divination professorAs I continue the ever-evolving re-write of my psychic development manual, I'm adding a section on different types of divination and the ways your physical brain processes the non-physical information provided by psychic abilities.  
Sounds dry, yes? NOT AT ALL! 
For everyone out there complaining about the current rise angel/fairy/unicorn/dragon/pixie readers and talking about how old school and normal your style is; Remember, not very long ago in human history the most respected form of divination was haruspication - the slaughter of animals and inspection of their entrails. If we still did that these days most psychics would have to give up the purple velvet and flowing capes for rubber gloves and aprons.

Your Spiritual Toolkit - Psychic Development Intensive Class – Learning to use your natural psychic gifts.

This Psychic Development Intensive Class is 16 hours long, divided into four 4-hour classes - $350 tuition.

Class size is limited – 14 Student Max, all students must be pre-registered.

Learn to be a psychic reader for yourself and others. In this class you will learn how to communicate with your spirit guides, receive messages and connect with your intuition. We will use meditation, group activities, partner work, and the “Seven Steps to Center” to explore divination, clairvoyance and your innate psychic abilities.

This is a challenging workshop. We will work with sensitive issues including emotions, relationships, forgiveness, ethics and morality as well as contacting spirits, reading the future, accessing health information, drawing the aura, and reading chakras. We will discuss business practices and legality for those who want to work professionally. Wear comfortable clothes as we will be moving about and taking the occasional field trip.

This class does not use cards, crystal balls or other tools. The magic is in you, not the wand or pendulum. Once you have learned how to access your own power all the tools and toys can be helpful and fun, but unnecessary. It’s all about learning to access your psychic abilities and unleash your mystical, magical mojo.

All Students will receive a psychic reading from John Thornton (included in registration fee) before class begins. Students also receive study materials including a workbook and access to the Student Forum. Graduates will receive a graduation certificate and will also be eligible for John Michael Thornton’s graduate workshops.

Medical Intuition for Practitioners

A few months ago I had the honor of presenting a talk on Medical Intuition for Pittsburgh's SiteNite.  This is a very special topic for me and one that I have only begun to explore even though it is the reason I became a professional psychic.

I thought all psychics were medical initiatives.  Growing up my parents told me stories of Edgar Cayce and all the good he was able to do, we visited the Cayce Foundation and the A.R.E. and I thought that was what psychics did - help people to be better.

People ask a lot of different questions when they get readings, will I get a new job, will I get married, will I win the lottery, but my goal is always to help people be better - physically and spiritually.

Talking about Medical Intuition has allowed me to return to my roots as a psychic and explore the questions, "Why do we get sick?" and "How can I be better, in every way?"  I am so grateful SiteNite gave me the time to talk about this fascinating topic and now one of the founders of SiteNite is hosting my full day workshop - Medical Intuition for Practitioners

Medical Intuition for Practitioners

We are Spirit made flesh and our physical condition is very much a part of spiritual experience. Medical Intuition is a way of looking at our physical ailments from a spiritual perspective to bring healing and relief. Every pain is telling us something; Medical Intuition can help us find out what our pain is saying.

In this training, specifically designed for practitioners already working as readers and healers, we will explore:

1. The connections between chakra imbalance and specific types of illness.
      a. How your past is written in your chakras and your anatomy.
      b. How to clear and balance your chakras after energy work.
2. How to connect with your client’s physical body.
      a. Ways to get a deeper connection during readings and energy work.
      b. Protecting yourself.
      c. Tracing the roots of illness and discovering where the energetic weakness began.
3. How to turn your intuitive abilities to your own body to maintain your physical and energetic health.
      a. It is easy to become imbalanced when working on an energetic level and too often we neglect to care for ourselves in the way we care for others.

I am not a doctor and will not be teaching you how to diagnose and treat illness. In my readings I offer direction and guidance helping people find the specialist and treatments that are right for them. In this class we will explore strategies to guide people to healthy and productive treatments and therapies. We will also talk about how we can move beyond our own fears and prejudices to make ourselves healthier and more balanced as well. I may not know how to adjust a spine, but I know when a client needs to see a chiropractor, a medical practitioner or doctor.

This workshop is designed to help you develop and hone your natural intuitive abilities toward medical intuition.

Handouts and other materials will be provided, students should wear comfortable clothes, bring writing materials and be ready for an experiential day.

We are in the process of putting together a Medical Intuitive Psychic Development workshop in Pittsburgh for those not yet practitioners. This 15 hour program will take you form the basics of psychic connection to an understanding of Medical Intuition. Contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

What does it mean to be Psychic? Psychic is of the Soul

(Q) Considering … the confusion and misconception of terms in the public mind, please give at this time a term which will best describe Edgar Cayce and his ability to give ‘Readings.’
(A) Application of the harmonious triune; or that as may be determined by those who may "make" a word or term to designate the various phases of the activities presented through such information.

To be sure, it is psychic - or of the soul. As is stated, this is confusing to many whose knowledge or awareness is only of some mediumistic séance or of some activities founded upon an experience of individuals that has led to such a train of thought.

It is the harmony of the triune - of body, mind and soul - towards the purpose of being a help, an assistance, an aid to others.
” - Edgar Cayce Reading 254-108



OrbsandWaterJoin me from the February New Moon to the March Full Moon for an exploration of where our psychic abilities come from, what are our limits and how can we more fully become.

I have been teaching psychic development for many years now and during that time I have begun to realize that the lines and limits we place on what is psychic, what is reiki, what is intuitive or spiritual are illusions.  We are creatures of spirit.  We are souls incarnated in the physical world and we bring our limitless abilities with us - manifesting in a multitude of ways. 

Psychic is not what you do, it is what you are, because psychic is of the Soul.  It is a manifestation of your soul and your soul is not limited by this physical world.

I am so excited to share this with you.  We are going to explore and it will be breathtaking.

Psychic Development Workshop - First Class

It's taken me a few weeks to get my thoughts in order about my first Psychic Intensive Workshop "Your Spiritual Toolkit."  For the longest time I just wanted to say, "OMG they were Awesome!  Great class!"  But I realize that is less than helpful or descriptive.

IcesicleThey were a fantastic first class and I feel incredibly blessed that I could work with this group of people.  I am doubly blessed that my first psychic development class went so very well. 

Planning a six-week class in northeastern Ohio in January is a gamble, but I've had great success with January classes and Spirit said unto me, "Why are you stalling?"  So I ignored my inner Saboteur and scheduled the class.  We only had to reschedule once for weather - which was great considering I had people driving nearly an hour each way.

I knew what I needed to cover the first three weeks, but I felt the need to keep the last three sessions loose and unscheduled so we could work with the needs and talents of the class.  That's also why I insisted everyone receive a reading before the first class; I wanted to make sure we would cover what was needed.

The first night everyone gave a reading and everyone got a reading – no fooling around, right into the deep end for my students.  Let me stress this again, Everyone gave a reading that first night.  After that, it was all about theory, practice, and technique – everyone gave a reading that first night.
Over the six classes we talked to our spirit guides, looked at auras, felt chakras, saw the future, talked about the past, waltzed, laughed, and had innumerable lectures on ethics and technique.  Every night I felt we could have talked long into the morning. 

One thing I stressed over and over, there is no set path – so we worked with all sorts of techniques.  No specialization in my class.  We are energy beings in mortal shells and while we will all have specialties we can all be general practitioners.  That is what I want to teach, how to be a GP of the psychic realm.  If you need a specialist, you can call one in, but all of my students learn the basics of every type of psychic work I can think of and fit into six nights.

The realm of metaphysics and psychic development is huge.  No one can know everything and there is infinite space for specialists, but there is always a need for the generalist.  The reader who has enough knowledge and confidence to cover most issues and send clients to a specialist when needed.

I treflectionsold Spirit I wanted to teach a class on how to be a psychic and I was given that and so much more.  I feel so incredibly proud of what I know these eight people are going to bring to the world, because I know each of them has learned the most important lesion of the class – they can do the work.

The first night, after every single one of them had given a reading, I had a few students giving the woe and sadness routine that they didn't feel 100% the first time out and I said:  The western world, science, and mainstream America says what you just did is impossible.  No one can see the future, or read minds, or see illness, or be psychic.  You just did the impossible.  You did the amazing and Never let anyone tell you otherwise.  You did the impossible.  Amazing.

I am so ready to teach the next class.  I wanted to start another session the very next day, but it's taken me a few weeks to get my thoughts together.  I am now looking for those interested in the next session and I'm trying to decide when we will have it.  Wednesday nights were ok, but I know some people who couldn't do the weeknight.  E-mail or call me if you are interested and when you will be available.

This next session will be recorded with the recordings available only to that classes students, but the transcripts will be incorporated into the next manual.  As the class is still developing, second session will only be $200 for six weeks.

Do something impossible every day – be a psychic!

To register for the next session, and to register your preference for when it will be, e-mail or call me today.  Next session will start in May!

Note:  I seem to have forgotten to take a class picture or anything like that so we have nature pictures instead.
