“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.”
Over the last 10 years this graduate of New York University, daughter of two computer scientists and otherwise rational adult in her 30's found herself spending more money on the services of tarot readers, palmists, clairvoyants and clairaudients (they hear voices) than some young actors spend on their cars. She paid one woman to read the sediment swirls at the bottom of a cup of Greek coffee.
Our school ecosystem includes a community of seekers, psychics, and Clairvoyants at varying levels of training and practice who are all exploring while you are developing this sensitive part of yourself in a safe, structured, and guided environment. There are lots of opportunities to connect with others and find community in validating and fun ways.
Many private clairvoyants also offer free samples, but you do need to take care. Psychics and clairvoyants are not regulated by any professional body, so there are frauds and fakes. Some free readings are truly free samples, but others may be “bait and switch” tactics. One of the most common tactics is to tell you that there is a “hex” or a “curse” on you that the psychic can remove if you pay them. In most cases, if a psychic or clairvoyant says you have a curse, particularly during a “free” reading, they are fraudulent, and you should stop the reading.
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.
