part 1 An Introduction to Your Psychic Abilities and Energy

chapter 1 Introduction One night as I was doing some last-minute Christmas shopping, I heard a group of excited teenagers discussing the blockbuster film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and the series of books by J. K. Rowling that have made her the second wealthiest woman in England. They were saying how cool it would be to attend the fictional Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where Harry Potter discovers that he has extraordinary abilities that he never imagined existed but that occasionally exhibited themselves in startling and detrimental ways until he was taught to control these talents. I smiled to myself as I thought about the esoteric school of clairvoyance that I attended, and the one I later established in Sedona, where every day, every minute, was a new adventure, filled with discovery, drama, mystery, and challenges unheard of by most living beings. It still amazes and saddens me that I lived twenty-seven years of my life without the slightest inkling that I possessed clairvoyant abilities, and that there were schools that could teach me things that were not supposed to even be possible. It's my dream that someday there will be no need for clairvoyant training schools because clairvoyant reading will be understood, encouraged, and taught by parents as well as teachers throughout our educational institutions. Unfortunately, we are not there yet. I hope this book will provide the initial wake-up call for the slumbering adults in the United States who are still oblivious to their own clairvoyant abilities and talents and therefore unaware of their own true potential and that of their children. If I could send everyone to a clairvoyant training school, I would, but that is neither feasible nor really necessary. Instead, I am bringing clairvoyant school to you, in this book, which I am dedicating to the thousands of clairvoyant students and teachers out there who can attest to the validity and usefulness of the information and guidance you are about to receive. This is the only book of its kind devoted to the specific psychic ability of clairvoyance, although the techniques presented herein will aid in the development and attainment of other spiritual/extrasensory abilities as well. This book is based on the truism that every person is a natural- born clairvoyant and healer, and with training, practice, and faith, anyone can learn to perform detailed and accurate readings. The simple techniques described here are guaranteed to lead to immediate results, provided that you, the reader, do your homework. This book will travel with you on your path of psychic and spiritual development: from learning basic techniques, to coping with the challenges of being psychic in mainstream society, to braving the business world of professional reading. Most importantly, this book will help you recognize how you naturally and constantly employ your psychic abilities (clairaudience, telepathy, transmediumship, and clairsentience) and will help you understand how these abilities may be enhancing or hindering your life. This material will provide you with invaluable, empowering tools that you can use in your everyday life, for the rest of your life, for guidance, healing, protection, manifestation, and creativity. This book will answer many questions and bring hope to those of you who have been experiencing problems for which there are no "logical" solutions. About the Author and Creation of this Book I began my clairvoyant training in 1994 at the Berkeley Psychic Institute in Berkeley, California, where I underwent an intensive thirteenmonth clairvoyant training program. Within one week of my training, which required us to attend class three hours a week and perform readings two to three times a week, I was accessing my clairvoyance for the first time in my twenty-seven years of existence in this lifetime. I was actually performing accurate and helpful readings, which was not uncommon for beginning students. Upon graduation, I went on to take classes and work with beginning clairvoyant students at the Aesclepion Healing Center in Marin County, California. The Berkeley Psychic Institute was founded by a brilliant psychic healer and spiritual teacher named Lewis Bostwick. Lewis recognized that people were suffering from pain and distress as a result of their lack of awareness of themselves as Spirit. He traveled throughout the world studying and practicing a variety of religions and disciplines, such as Catholicism, Scientology, the Rosicrucian Order, and Philippine faith healing, all of which strongly influenced the development of his clairvoyant reading and healing techniques. He designed and perfected specific techniques that have served the thousands of students who practiced them, as well as the hundreds of thousands of people who have received psychic readings from these students. Lewis Bostwick "fathered" generations of clairvoyant teachers, many of whom went on to establish their own clairvoyant and healing institutes and training programs. I began my clairvoyant training about two months after Lewis' death, and many of the techniques in this book were taught to me by his talented students. Robert Skillman, David Pierce (founder of Intuitive Way, a psychic training school), John Fulton (founder of the Aesclepion Healing Center), and Chris Murphy were a few of my most influential teachers. Lewis Bostwick believed in an oral tradition of teaching. While his school published its own magazine with articles presenting simple techniques and concepts, he never published a comprehensive manuscript on clairvoyant training such as I am doing here. I never received any written materials during my clairvoyant...(Continues)

Format: Paperback
I've been doing professional readings for clients both in person and over my personal home phone line since the late 1980's, usually using some type of intuitive tool like Tarot cards, playing cards, pendulums, taseomancy, etc. I would often get flashes of clairvoyance that would supplement whatever tool I was using, which to me was an extra "treat".

Then I came across books written by students from the late Lewis Bostwick that encouraged learning and giving clairvoyant readings by using a symbol (often a rose) to represent the person you were reading. The Bostwick methods also encouraged taking care of your own energy and aura using the symbols of roses, grounding cords and other visualized items.

This system freed me from having to always rely on physical tools by using the inner tools of the mind. Instead of just looking forward to the occasional accurate clairvoyant "flash" the books written by Bostwick's students teach readers how to harness one's clairvoyance. On a practical level, I could give quick and easy clairvoyant readings for people when hired for parties by using Bostwick's Berkeley Institute's methods. It's quick, easy and you don't need a table to put stuff on.

However, I was not satisfied completely with this system, perhaps either due to my own limitations, or the lack of information in the books I read to answer some questions, or a combination of both. So, I went back to using cards, runes and other physical tools to answer other questions for my clients if I felt the rose symbolism wouldn't help.

That all changed with Debra Katz' book.

Ms. Katz also comes from the Lewis Bostwick method & so many of the visualizations were quite familiar to me.

I have read a whole bunch of different books for developing psychic ability and while some were very good, this is the best I have encountered so far. I was so impressed with the book I saught the author out for a reading. I received a a phone reading a few days ago, and her information was accurate and VERY helpful for me, which gives me even more faith in following through with the work outlined in the book.

I really appreciate how she includes exercises for many practical purposes, such as grounding and clearing out negative energy. I especially like the exercise for Calling Back Your Energy. Even though she is a professional psychic, she actually instructs the readers in detail how they can develop their own abilities and read for others. Now, that's generous!

I went for my first Clairvoyant Aura Reading at InVision (here in Chicago) last Saturday as I was curious how different this is from consulting fortune tellers. I also want to develop my psychic abilities and learning to read the aura. My first clairvoyant aura reading experience was very good. They were very accurate. I highly recommend having this kind of reading as opposed to fortune tellers who does not seem to know what they are doing or saying. There are a lot of phony fortune tellers out there who are only after your money.

Well, since I cannot afford to attend a clairvoyant training course at InVision right now, I decided to buy this book. I have seen this book a few months ago and noticed that the writer use the rose as a focus tool. The clairvoyants at InVision also use this technique. So, I decided to get this book the next day (Sunday). I started with the meditation tools - creating a grounding cord for myself and the rooms in my house etc. I followed the creating and destroying images/things, as well as calling back my energy. The next day Monday when I went to school, I was surprised to see my teacher and classmate's aura and spirit. Since our classroom have white walls, it was easier to see the aura and how pronounced they appeared. I could not take my gaze away from my teacher's direction as she was giving us a lecture. I sure hope she did not think I was staring at her. I am aware that when you stare directly at the aura, you will lose sight of it, so I gazed directly at her but I can see the the outline of her aura and spirit with my peripheral vision. First, I saw the white aura. Then, it grew big/expanded. For the first time, I saw a reddish tint/color around her outer layer, but I have no idea what the colors mean yet. Then, her spirit grew and turned translucent.

If you are trying to develop your psychic and clairvoyant ability, then theis book is a must. It is a book as the author suggests you first read through, then go back into. There are many and varied exercises that would need months of practice and development, but Debra Katz has generously shared her knowledge and experience with the world. This is the best book on psychic development I have come across.

Format: Paperback
Bought this book based on the positive reviews. I'm not really a fan, so I'm just going to lay out the pros and cons as I see them:

-Much more "how to" than some psychic development books on the market

-Has some useful advice on the practicalities and potential pitfalls of reading professionally that many authors don't bother to point out

-Some of the methods are effective enough

-The book assumes no prior knowledge or skill and doesn't use a lot of technical jargon

-I felt like the author was sincerely expressing what she believes to be the best method

-Has a glossary of terms commonly used in psychic and New Age parlance at the end

-Focuses on clairvoyance only, which might be somewhat easier for an absolute newbie than other psychic methods (but then again some people get their info other ways, so I don't know)

-The author uses only one particular method, which she indicates is popular at psychic training schools in the San Francisco Bay
Area, all of which were founded by one Lewis Bostwick or his students. In other words, it's great if you love that method, but if you don't, you won't find any alternatives here.

-The method is weird compared to other methods I've learned--not saying it's completely uneffective necessarily but I do find it overly complicated (in particular the use of a "viewing receptacle") and certainly not more effective than other methods

-It's as if the author has never heard of or tried any other way of psychic reading. She comes across as a little preachy or indoctrinated about it; personally I would have liked to see at least the acknowledgement that other perspectives and approaches exist.
