MTV Movie Awards, Twin Cities Live and Life

It’s been a busy and beautiful spring in Minnesota. Believe me, we typically earn our springs!

Spring, I have been told is a time for creating, planting, planning and rebirth. It’s also the season of my birth.

This year has been a big one for me with lots of loss and some beautiful gains. My husband and I moved our family to a new home. We loved our old community and we so love our new one as well. Our neighborhood is amazing and filled with kids!

On a sad note, I lost two dear friends to cancer. All the changes have changed me. I look even more fervently to the future. There is so much I want to accomplish; so much I want to learn. Magnetizing what I love is big on my list.

Something good and sweet must be in the air and I am so grateful. My book, The Happy Medium (Llewellyn, 2009) will be included in the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Four Seasons Gift Bags! Once I receive the list of recipients, I will post!

I do believe The Happy Medium has met and will meet more stars than I! I have met several however, thanks to Twin Cities Live! The show ( has been a wonder for me. My last segment, ( titled, Following Your Intuition apparently sparked something for viewers because my email box has been brimming with comments and/or requests for readings. The segment is about the intuitive process and how we can ALL put it to good use!

 Put yours to good use..TRUST IT! Or as I love to say…Trust your Gut, Follow your Heart and use your Head!


Oscar Gift Bags

Oscar, Oscar, Oscar!

I love reading energy. It is especially fun at parties, where people tend to shine the brightest. The Oscars, now that is one huge party and this year I’ll be watching the stars, reading the energy and wondering whose hands my book, “The Happy Medium” (Llewellyn Worldwide) has and will been in.

“The Happy Medium” is in especially good company this weekend. It is, along with a host of unique and amazing items, in the Four Season Hotel Oscar Gift Bags! The bags include some fabulous products such as a gift set from Intelligent Nutrients, some truly amazing wine and chocolate and a $1500 Un Amore mixer that as I understand it, Khloe Kardashian also owns. The list goes on so I have included a few links for your viewing pleasure.

People are asking me how “The Happy Medium” landed in the Oscar Bag. It happened through a series of seemingly unrelated events that ended in my book being voted into the bag by the hosts of Twin Cities Live, John Hanson and Elizabeth Ries! This is the link to the segment as well as a list of the fabulous items in the bag!

CNN Entertainment did a story on the bags titled, Oscars bring gifts for A-list to D-list. “The Happy Medium” is in the upper right hand corner of the photo.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to go paint my daughter’s nails and help her put on a fancy dress. This IS Oscar night after all!

Is this how a blog works…I’m adding to it?!

MOA, Sea Life, Spooks and Twin Cities Live!

Last Friday I did a shoot for a fabulous television show called Twin Cities Live. The show showcases some of the happenings in the Twin Cities. Let’s just say, something is definitely happening at The Mall of America, and I don’t mean just the great shopping!

I’ve been a regular guest on Twin Cities Live since September 2009. My segments have included everything from reading models (Cheryl Tiegs), football players (Chris Kluwe) to audience members and their pets!

Last October we did a story on a grand old mansion that had been turned into an elegant restaurant called Forepaughs. There was a rumor about ghosts and we set out to discover for ourselves if there was any truth to them. It was definitely a lot of fun but not overly creepy.

Well last Friday was fun and extremely chilling! We invited Dave Schrader of Darkness Radio to join us. We were originally headed to another potentially haunted spot and then Dave learned that something fishy was going on at Sea Life at The Mall of America and suggested we check it out.

So late last Friday night, Kerry from Twin Cities Live, Darkness Dave and I met Megan and Nate from Sea Life at the MOA. We headed down in the dark to see the aquatic life and perhaps some apparitions.

Honestly, I was initially a doubter and thought that the whole thing might be a ploy for advertising. The minute I met Megan and Nate I knew they were honest so I prepared myself for some ghostly encounters. Within a few seconds I felt a chill and sensed stagnant spirit energy rush around my body. I heard faded voices and smelled musty cigarette smoke. Each time I stopped to comment about a different spot, I noticed that Dave paused. I thought it was because of his fear of aquariums.

Later I learned that I had stopped in the very places that Megan had previously pointed out to Dave. They were the very same spots that were noted by employees as potentially eerie.

It’s not unusual for earth bound spirits to drain batteries or mess with anything electronic so I shut my phone off before entering the area. Dave did his thing, I did mine and the spirits floating around Sea Life certainly did theirs! I wasn’t the only one hearing, feeling and seeing apparitions.

When we stepped out of the area, I turned my phone back on and took a few photos. The second picture was great so I saved it and put my phone in my purse. After I arrived home, I wanted to show my husband the cute spook crew and found that I no longer had a camera on my phone. Everything related to the camera was gone. Everything.

Later the next day Dave and I exchanged text messages about the cool and eerie adventure at the MOA. I told him about my camera and then forgot about it until later in the day when I decided to check it just one more time. I touched the camera icon and.. the photos were back!

Without giving too much away before the segment airs tomorrow, you should know.. if you love a good rush or chill, or if you are simply open and interested in the possibilities, you will absolutely want to see Twin Cities Live Tomorrow!

Check it out-10-28-11 at 3:00pm CST on Channel 5-KSTP (!

The 2011 Playboy Playmate of the Year has a reading on live television!

Since August of 2009, I have been a regular guest on a great local television show called Twin Cities Live ( The show features interesting and unique local events as well as updates about what’s happening in the media and in the world in general. National stars frequently stop in to plug upcoming events or products that they are endorsing. I’ve had the opportunity to meet a number of celebrities and do a reading on a few as well! For example, I’ve met Kevin Nealon, Margaret Cho, David Archuletta, Tom Arnold and Joey Pantoliano. And I’ve had the pleasure for instance of reading Chris Kluwe, Cheryl Tiegs, The Durst quadruplets, and most recently a Playboy Playmate.

When I read someone, my spirit literally merges with his or hers. Last Friday I had the opportunity to read Claire Sinclair, the 2011 Playboy Playmate of the Year. Claire was excited to have a reading and open to what she heard. Her responses were animated and candid which helped make the segment a big success! (

Another reason the segment was so interesting to view is that Claire’s authenticity and warmth were so easy to see. She has an understanding of who she is and resonated with what I said about her. When people own their own truth, they shine.

As I said in my book, The Happy Medium (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2009) when I do a reading, I remind my client to keep their mind open, and to take the information with a grain of salt. All psychics and mediums are simply interpreters of the information they see. When I open up and merge with a client’s higher self or spirit, pictures immediately are dropped into my head about them. These rapid-moving images are considerably relevant to what the client is experiencing in their life at the time. They help me identify how my client can bring more joy and success into their life.

Each time my client acknowledges an understanding about what I am saying the pictures become more vibrant. When truth is acknowledged, the chances of increased joy and success are doubled! There are no passive participants in a successful reading. As I’ve said, when people own their own truth, they shine. Check out the reading I did on Claire, she shines!
