“Signing up for the training, I had a lot of expectations and ideas around the word “psychic”, all of which revolved around other people, and solving their problems. What the training turned out to be was very different, though no less magical. I found out that I was the stranger in my own life. I realized that there wasn’t anything wrong with me, and my sensitivity to other people’s energy wasn’t a problem that needed to be solved. Magical things started to happen, It just didn’t look anything like how I had imagined it. It turned out to be much better.”
Ms. Lassez's first taste of the paranormal came a decade ago on location for a film in Detroit, when -- on a whim -- she dropped in on a tarot reader to get her mind off a breakup and an argument on the set. The psychic spread out 10 cards on the kitchen table in a Celtic cross, a standard tarot pattern. The 10th card, which supposedly augurs the subject's future, was the Star. To any young actress the meaning would be clear. By the time she left Detroit, she had her own tarot deck.
