February 2014 "Rants & Raves"

What a short and crazy month this has been!  I think I can credit a lot of this to Mercury Retrograde running from Feb. 6th to Feb. 28th.  (A high energy Retrograde I might add.)  The month for me began with renewing my business license as well as my notary commission.  (This always takes nearly a whole day for whatever reason.)

Thank you to those that came out to the Aqua Lounge in Downtown Richmond this month.  I will be returning there in March on Tuesday March 4th and Tuesday March 18th, psychic readings begin at 7PM.  Feel free to email me for details.  Also a thank you to those that attended the second Tarot Card Workshop.  This workshop will be offered online through my website very soon! (It has been delayed a little longer than I originally had planned.)

Jaselyn and I have worked out a schedule that fits both her needs and mine.  As you can see by her Valentine’s Day picture, she is growing like a weed!  (A refreshing change to last Valentine’s Day when I lost my Mother.)

I spent a full day in the studio this month filming an episode of “A Haunting” from one of our cases in 2009.  I love this show!  I also loved the fact that it is an hour to which I think the family was able to get out their story in its entirety.  I have to admit that I was a little skeptical going into this case with what they reported.  Boy, did that location prove me wrong!  I can say that we could back up their claims with some footage to prove some of what they reported.  It was GREAT to reunite with them and see how well they are doing today.  They described the filming as “Therapy” to give them their final closure.  This is projected to air this summer on Discovery’s Destination America, and I will keep you posted.  If you have an interest in the paranormal be sure to visit our website. For the locals with a paranormal interest, I will set up a meeting for the public sometime in March.

It is amazing to see how my clients have evolved over the years.  From their psychic readings to the reports of the paranormal.  It certainly does make things worth my time!  As always, I continue to add new projects to my plate.  What is life without goals?

I am seeing a lot of new traffic to my website.  Though I do not wish to take time from your psychic reading to ask, please take the time to email me and tell me how you found my site.  I would GREATLY appreciate it.  I advertise on several different sources and sometimes have a hard time tracking which is most effective.

I am getting a lot of inquiries on the Reiki Course.  I plan to spin off a blog on this in the next few days.  Meanwhile, if you have any questions regarding Reiki, feel free to email me directly.

March is right around the corner.  With that don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time is March 9th and the first day of spring is March 20th.  Hallelujah!  It has been a rough winter here in Virginia.  (I am most certain that this will be followed by a 100-degree summer.)   Your free monthly horoscope will post to my website on March 1st.  I am kicking off March 1st with live psychic readings in Chester, Virginia.  Also, keep an eye on my Events calendar, as my schedule is forever changing and sometimes events are added with little notice.

Upcoming, I will be working on my spring newsletter, so send me your email address if you wish to be added to the list.  I also hope to update my YouTube channel in the next few days. 

What is the best time to reach me for a psychic reading?  Between 1PM to 1AM.

Until next time…

Will my case be on TV?

The immediate response to this question would be NO.

With so many paranormal shows, and paranormal specials appearing, this is now becoming a common question.  Our intention and focus is on YOUR case, not television.  On the flip side, we have also upped our screening process on cases to make sure that it is not YOUR intention.

I want to take the time to clarify some of this process.  We are indeed contacted by production companies on varying occasions throughout the year.  In addition, we have had homeowner’s submit their own cases to various shows.  So let me see if I can give you some insight as to how this works.

Let me give you an example of some of the questions a production company will approach us with:

-         Do you have a location with a history of….
-         Has anyone ever reported …
-         Have you had an investigation with….
-         Have you ever been in a location like…
-         Do you have a family that has experienced …
-         Do you have any cases that were not paranormal because of …
-         Do you have any footage of…
-         Do you have any families that need help with….
-         Have any families changed their lives because of …
-         Can you back the families claims with evidence of ….

That is just a short list to give you an idea of what we are asked on our end.  Now in the event that we have a case they are looking for, there are questions for the homeowner’s that may appear like this:

-         Are they comfortable with sharing their story?
-         Do they mind going on camera?
-         Are they looking for money?
-         Do they rent or own their home?
-         Will they allow production in their home?
-         Are they willing to travel?

On our end, we are looking at everything INCLUDING the production company that has contacted us:

-         Are they looking for the “worst of the worst” for ratings?
-         What have they produced before?
-         What kind of airtime are they looking at for this case?  (6 minutes or an hour?)
-         Have they ever produced anything with the paranormal before?  (That is a BIG deciding factor!)

In the event that we can make a match with all of these pieces, you will be contacted by either JACKIE or NIKKI.  (No one else portraying as CVAPI!)  Your information is NOT released to ANY production company unless we contact you first.  If you give us the go ahead for them to contact you directly then we will do so.  (For those that are submitting your own cases, we would appreciate the same in return.)

In reality, there is only a SMALL PERCENT that we can make a match to.  We have also had cases to which the homeowner has backed out of filming to which we are completely FINE with.  There is also no time limit as to when these cases occurred.  Recently we filmed our best case from 2009.  However, we have been asked before to return to the location for additional footage.
