I had a medium reading done in 2007 that changed my life forever.
I got it as a gift for my birthday. The medium was well-known and booked out to September. At the time, I was living at school for my last semester of college. When she called me for the reading, our exchange was only “hello” and then (without me saying anything to her) she started telling me about my abilities. She told me I am a medium, a psychic, and a ton of other things and that I needed to start reading people. She told me to go to a bookstore and get a deck of cards, learn how to use them, then start offering readings.
Given that I have been sensitive, psychic, etc. since I was little (dreaming premonitions, having premonitions aside from dreams, seeing spirits, etc. since I was about 7 years old) this was what I needed to hear. I grew up very sensitive and highly “tuned in” and intuitive to the nines.
Needless to say, I went to Borders bookstore, got a deck of cards, read the guidebook and then read myself with them for about a month. Then I started offering them in the dorms for free. The readings were accurate and I ended up reading 10–20 people per week. Then I started offering them online and the rest is history. October will be my 11 year anniversary. 🙂
