Hi there, I’m Hansel! I come from a long family lineage of intuitive women. From a young age, I have had dreams that come true. Which, I now consider to be premonitions. Also, I could predict major life events such as births and deaths down to the time.
As a grew so did my abilities. As a teenager, I could sense and energetically feel the mental, emotional, and physical state of the environment and people I was around. At the time I thought I was just “sensitive” and had “sensory issues”.
In my twenties, I started to see spirit. However, I dismissed it as if it was only a lucid dream and the result of being tired. Then I encountered something that would change my outlook on what I called my “spidey-sense” forever. I had a Reiki session. During the session, I could feel the energy move around me in waves. I could sense my illness being pulled out and away from me. I hadn’t expected it to work, yet it did.
Being the curious person that I am, I wanted to know more. I wanted to know why I could feel the energy. I signed up to learn Reiki that week. I would go on to achieve Reiki Master status. Reiki didn’t satiate my desire for understanding the totality of my abilities. It only opened the door wider.
I went on to learn Healing Touch and became an ordained Healing Minister. I went to a Psychic for the first time and was BLOWN away. This woman was able to read my mind. She had told me I had three angels and what their names were. In my head I was asking the question “How do you spell that?” and out loud the Psychic said “Wow! You must be really particular. You spell the name S. A. R. A. H. not S. A. R. A.” That was proof enough for me that psychics were real!
INTUITIVE PSYCHIC MEDIUM
I began my adventure. I went to just about every alternative healing, psychic festival, and mediumship church I could. I have had: Reiki, Healing Touch, Acupuncture, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Crystal Healings, Astrology Readings, Mediumship Readings, Psychic Readings, Angel Card Readings, Tarot Readings, and the list goes on and on. I was still not satisfied.
Then, I found a Psychic class, “Learn how to be psychic” it claimed on the brochure. Little did I know what I was in for that night. I gave my first reading to a complete stranger and was dead on! I could not believe what was happening. I could no longer deny that I was an Empathic Healer and an Intuitive Psychic Medium. That’s a mouth full!
Of course, never satisfied I decided to test myself over and over and over (you get the picture). I would have someone draw a picture and then I would draw what I thought they had drawn. I would try and guess cards, colors, songs, shapes, and anything else you could think of. I started doing medical readings and card readings.
PSYCHIC BURN OUT
Still unsure of my gifts but ever trying to experience more I signed up for Psychic Fairs, I got my own office and started booking clients. I never truly believed in my gifts until I started seeing my clients cry from the readings. I received confirmation from outside of myself that in fact, I was receiving information.
I had a blog about energy healing for 12 years. Then, I got burnt out. I had some major life changes and I buried my gifts. My Christian upbringing and the skepticism/stigma around anything unexplainable like psychic work really conflicted with my self-identity. I wasn’t self-assured and I never fully accepted my gifts.
RESTORED INTUITIVE ABILITIES
For 4 years my gifts lay dormant. Then I was provided an opportunity to practice again in a safe environment where no one knew me as the pastor’s daughter. Enter Tik Tok. I thought I would put myself out there and see if anyone connected to my messages. And to my surprise, I gained 700 followers within a week!
I received the encouragement that I needed. I started to embrace my gifts. I realize now that by denying my abilities I deny part of myself. I am healthier and happier when I’m able to help others in a meaningful way.
