Describe your psychic ability: I can read the dead very well. They are attracted to me and speak quite often without my permission. I can see short-term into the future, as much as a couple of years and back as far as we go, mortally that is. I can see a person's whole life when they are open to a reading, down to dates, descriptions and memories. I can channel the dead and usually get them to do what the living are asking of them. In addition, I have some empathic abilities with healing; I can treat and take away disease from those willing to allow it to be taken away. The empathy ability is my strongest ability, or rather my favorite; I think it does the most good for people.

When did you realize you had this gift: I guess the first big experience was when I was eight. My nanny was in the hospital, and the nurses could not get a vein. My grandmother and mother were being very chaotic in the room, and there was this air of anxiety. I asked them to leave, and as soon as they did, I touched my nanny’s face and whispered in her ear that the next poke would go in just fine. When the nurse put the needle in she was shocked. She looked at me sort of like I was a strange creature. My mom and grandmother came back into the room and were equally shocked. My nanny opened her eyes, something she hadn’t done in hours, and grabbed my hand. When I bent down to her level, she said, "You're an angel.'"

When I discovered my gift I was a little scared, but I always knew I was a little different, so ultimately I was OK with it.
