Psyching Up for Everyday Life


with Bette Freedson

Calendar Apr 25, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Psychics are often thought to have unusual powers.  In fact, there is such a mystique surrounding "the psychic dimension" that many people are willing to suspend their own opinions and decisions for the "insights" and "intuition" of the psychic.

Have you considered that YOU are psychic?  If that sounds too far out, consider this: Everyone has intuitive ability that can be developed and drawn on for use in everyday life.  Gaining access to your own psychic ability is as simple as sitting in a rocking chair and staring off into space.  Join Bette and discover that what seems to be a mysterious and complex gift is really rather ordinary.  Learn to still the mind in such a way as to block out interference from the busyness of the outer works is the first step in becoming your own personal psychic.
