"Intuition","Intuitive", mean the same thing as psychic, channel etc...Intuition and intuitive are gentler terms, and much more user friendly than psychic.

Over the years, the word psychic has been shanghi-ed by criminals masquerading, as true intuitives, as a means to scam money from uneducated, needful people. Intuition, is something we all have that should be held in the highest regard.


It is our sixth sense that tells us when something is not right. Regardless of who you are listening to for advice, your own sense of intuition should be followed, above all else.

Remember this...If it doesn't feel right, its' not right for you.

Praying Over Rocks, Crystals, Charms, Etc.

I cannot see a situation where prayer hurt anything. However, if you are being told that you must pay someone hundreds, or maybe thousands of dollars so they can "pray" for you, in any shape form or fashion, to release you from harm, of any shape form or fashion, you are being lied to and scammed.


Does this sound reasonable or rational to you? You need to follow your own intuition to deal with your situation.


NO ONE and I mean NO ONE, can do something for you better than you can do for yourself, and that includes prayer. Common sense is just as important to you as your eyesight, use them both. God gave you both types of sight to help you through this world.

Should I See an Intuitive about my Health Issue?

I have certainly answered many questions over the years about peoples health. I always make sure that they understand that I am not a doctor and that they should continue to see and listen to their doctor's advice concerning any medical issue that they have.


If you have a question about your doctor's advice then get a second opinion from another doctor. If you feel that you should ask about your health issue in a reading, then do so, and consult a doctor.

Mental Health and Intuition

No, I don't think that people who are intuitive are crazy. I think that truth be told, although maybe not in a terribly public way, most mental health care providers are getting the picture that it is not a mental illness either. It is a sad, but true fact, some people's mind's do not work correctly.


Mental illness is an illness. If you are being seen by a mental health care provider, you should continue to do so until they advice you other wise.

I do get the message from spirit that there are labels such as ADD, ADHD that are used a bit too frequently. That aside, changing your medications or mental health care is not a call for an intuitive to make. See your doctor about that type of question.

While in Session with Carla Mae

For the first time in her career, Carla is only accepting hour-long sessions. This is since many times, even though she only was paid for a half-hour, she gave an hour's reading because the client needed it. With so much chaos and shifting happening around us, she feels an hour is necessary to touch on all the issues in people's lives.

When life calms down, she may go back to offering half-hour time slots again.

An hour session is 250.00 - the same price as before, it is worth it.

What Makes Carla Mae Different from other Psychics?

The same thing that makes one dentist different than the next...experience, a sparkling personality, and expertise.

What is the Difference Between a Psychic/Intuitive and a Psychic/Intuitive medium?

Everyone is born with psychic or intuitive abilities. Remember, they mean the same thing ie: sixth sense, or ability to see beyond the obvious. A person who has mediumistic abilities simply just has the natural talent of communicating with the spiritual realm.

Channelling is the act of listening to the other side and communicating the perceived messages back here. We all really have the ability to channel, the difference is being able it on command, or for other people and make sense of what you are seeing. Did you know, many great composers actually channelled their music!

How Could a Session with Carla Mae Help your Life? 

I once had a person ask me what a "dead" person (although, we don't die) could possibly have to say to us that a living person could not?

The answer to that question is...the other side has no motive for telling us one thing over another. They have no attachment to the outcome of their words. So, if they are suggesting that you do one thing or another, you might want to pay attention. Now if your neighbor is trying to tell you to do something over another, consider the source, be prudent and use both of your eye sights, both physical and intuitive to make your decision!

Does Carla Mae use Tarot Cards, Crystals, Glass Balls, Dice, Chickens, or Swizzle Sticks in her Sessions?

Carla Mae is the "real deal" and she uses her sense of intuition and chakras to do her sessions. She doesn't need tools such as tarot cards or divination tools to assist her in her readings.

She loves chickens, she has two in her backyard, they are named Obama and Biden because they are survivors, just like their namesakes. As for dice and swizzle sticks, she refuses to touch them during sessions... all other times are open for discussion!

Am I Really talking to the Real Carla Mae or a Network of Psychics? 

You will only talk to the real Carla Mae. Be careful when calling psychic services that offer 24 hour sessions. USE your reasonable and rational judgement when selecting an intuitive to do your session. If arrested - would you hire a, round the clock, on-demand bank of lawyers?

Does Carla Mae offer free readings? 

Carla has been known at times to offer her services pro bono. If you are wanting a "sample" reading, please refer to your post office. Do they give out a sample book of stamps? Does the spa give out a sample massage? Of course not, again, be reasonable.

Can Carla Mae Help me Find Something that I Have Lost?

Possibly. Carla has helped people find items such as rings, papers, etc...even a ferret! Have an open mind when having a session, spirit is in charge of what they talk about, and they might be able to direct you to your wayward item. Then again, they might have something much more important to talk to you about in the short time frame they are in connection with you, via Carla Mae.

How much is a session. How long is the session and how do I book it now!

For the first time in her career, Carla is only accepting hour-long sessions.

What is Mediumship?

A medium is a person who is able to connect to the vibrations of loved ones that have passed away, Spirit Guides, Angels and The Ascended Masters.Everyone is capable of "connecting" to the vibrations of spirit. There are many ways that the medium receives messages: either by hearing (clairaudience), seeing (clairvoyance) or feeling (clairessence).

Symbols are the language of the universe. Most of the time, spirit will show a symbol to the medium in order to deliver the message. For example, in one reading spirit showed me fireworks. I was reading for a client whose mother died right after the Fourth of July.

Working with spirit as a medium resembles a "sounds like" game. They will use any way possible to get the message across to the medium. They often use songs, pictures and names of well-known people to get their messages to us. Our loved ones in spirit are with us ALL the time. If they try to connect to you (without the aid of a medium) they may try using smells that are familiar to you, or you might suddenly think of them ... just as "their" song comes on the radio, or your house could repeatedly make popping or settling sounds. These are all ways that spirit tries to reconnect with us.

When we die we take our consciousness with us. We still feel the love that we felt here for our family and friends. At the time of death, we obviously no longer need a physical body - it can be likened to a suit of armor. In the spirit world, that suit is no longer necessary, so it is shed and left behind.

However, our mental and emotional bodies go with us. Spirit has the advantage, because they can see their world AND ours. Our vision is limited to this realm - unless developed to greater stages of awareness. In a way, there is a one-way mirror between our world and theirs. They can see us, but we can't see them.

Many times, I am asked the question, "What good is connecting to them?" Well, that is a personal question that deserves a personal answer. What it means to me is the reassurance that I WILL again see my family that I love and miss. I also feel very much at peace knowing that we do go on; death is not stopping, it is a rebirth! I have seen how greatly connecting to one's family or Guides and Angels can, and does, change peoples' lives in beautiful ways. 

"I really do not have any special family member that has died. Can you still do a reading for me?"

Of course! Every Medium has the ability to see energy around a person and what direction it is moving in. I half about a 50/50 ratio to my readings. Half of my clients need to connect to a lost loved one and the other half need assistance with what direction their life is going in. I can assist you either way, or with both!

"How can you do a reading for me via telephone?"

Have you ever seen a voice vibration pattern where it shows a graph of the sounds a person's vocal cords make? Every voice has a unique pattern and vibration, much like a fingerprint. When I connect to a person 's energy for the purpose of doing a reading, I am connecting into their voice fingerprint. No two people will have the same pattern. This is how I can read over the phone or on the radio. If I can hear your voice, then I can read for you. I have even read for people via telephone as far away as Europe.

"Why can't my family members on the other side just tell you what they need to say instead of showing you symbols?"

They can. And they do often times just talk into my head giving me literal sounds and words to deliver to my client. This direct form of communication is much harder for Spirit to deliver sometimes. It is easier and faster if they show me symbols rather than try to speak through spelling out words or getting words confused. Remember they are talking to me through a long distance connection, it is easy to hear the wrong implication. There are three things that make a reading a success and rewarding experience for all parties involved. They are:

1) My ability as a Medium to bring my level of vibration up to meet theirs and my ability to clear my thoughts out of my head so they can talk to me.

2) Spirit's ability to send me their thoughts, memories and messages to me through their own abilities. This comes in the form of a mind to mind connection between us.

3) And YOUR ability to remember and recognize what they are saying to you. And often times they bring up things that may have happened to you years before that are not at the front of your mind. They do this because I need them to deliver information that is very personal and unique to you that is not researchable.

"Psychic people scare me. Doesn't the Bible say it is a sin to go to a Psychic?"

I was raised Baptist, so I totally understand the whole you will burn for what you do theory. As a matter of fact, when I realized that I wasan Intuitive, I was pretty terrified, of myself. I do not wish to sway anyone's opinion about what I do. What each of us choose to do is our own business. I will say, that there are many things that I believe are written in the Bible that are not necessarily in line with today's idea of correctness. There are MANY prophets in the Bible and to say it is not of God, is not a correct statement.

As quoted from my guestbook from a client:

" I believe in your gift from God for he so stated in 1Corinthians 12 through Paul, that "SPIRITUAL GIFTS" are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. God Bless "

What is Reiki?

(The following is reprinted courtesy of MarVeena Wells.)

Rei-Ki is a Japanese word for Universal - Life Force. A Reiki practitioner is a channel for this Holy energy.

There are many words to describe life force energy: Ki, Chi, Prana, Holy Spirit, Holy Breath, Mana, Ruach, Orgone and Magnetism. These words describe the Divine God essence that flows through all living things, people, animals, plants, and minerals. If it is alive, Godsource energy flows through it.

It is believed that The Masters Jesus and Buddha were both Reiki Masters and utilized the symbols in Reiki to heal. Everyone has the ability to channel Reiki, it is part of our birthright and ingrained in our DNA structure. We all have the circuitry and wiring for this energy. The attunement merely opens these paths.

I have consciously been working with Master Jesus for three years. The attunements and classes I give are led by him in spirit. I am merely the vessel, it is the Christed energy that passes the Sacred attunements and channels the material in the classes.

There are other Masters in spirit who share information during my classes from time to time. I have another Reiki Spirit guide whose name is Master Le Chang. He mastered the Reiki energy thousands of years ago in the East. By the law of attraction we are working together to empower others with Reiki.

The attunement is an Initiation and an awakening. It is a ceremony of heart. The attunement requires a combination of intent and desire to heal by the students. Once this combination is in place it is acknowledged by the Reiki Masters in spirit. Using the physical Reiki Master as a channel, the Reiki Masters in spirit awaken all layers of the physical and etheric bodies of the initiate. They set in motion the energetic awakening in all layers of the bodies for the new healer through the Reiki Master in the physical. This is truly a mystical event.

Reiki is traditionally divided into three parts or Degrees. The First Degree attunement is helpful in healing physical level disease in the person who receives it. Your physical health will often change for the better in the months following the initiation. In the First Degree class you will learn hand placement positions to channel Reiki to both yourself and others who are physically present.

There are many things taught in Reiki Level One that are important in healing ourselves, among them are the Five Reiki Principals for living. These are powerful methods for releasing the past. Combined with Reiki these Five Reiki Principals help in breaking up stagnant thought forms that have crystallized in our auras. Reiki then helps to move these negative thought forms out of our energy field and transmutes the negative energy. This cleared energy field is now in a position to receive more pure positive energy from the God Source, paving the way for more vibrant health.

The Reiki Principals are:

Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings. 
Just for today I will not be angry. 
Just for today I will not worry. 
Just for today I will do my work honestly. 
Just for today I will be kind to every living thing.

In my Reiki One class you will receive information regarding Reiki and healing. This information is channeled by my Reiki Masters in spirit. You will also receive a manual outlining the hand positions, the twenty-one day cleanse and other relevant information.

The Second Degree is particularly exciting because you will learn knowledge and the proper use of the Reiki symbols. This will dramatically increase your ability to channel Reiki. This attunement will multiply the Reiki energy ten times as much as the First Degree. This Reiki Two attunement clears a path for a higher frequency to flow through. You will be able to give a complete session in less time because you are moving more energy and the body you are working on can be brought into balance faster.

The long distance symbol is included in the Reiki Two class. I call it the magic carpet symbol. You can use this symbol to send healing Reiki to anyone at any time or place. It has no boundaries and transcends space and time. This long distance symbol can penetrate dimensions and heal past, present and future. Time and space do not exist in spirit and we are all connected through God's love. You are taught the importance of honoring the Free Will of individuals you are channeling the Reiki energy to. Being able to send Reiki long distance is one of the wonders of Reiki. It empowers us to do something for our loved ones in times of crisis when we can't be there in person. We can also send healing on a global level to war torn areas or natural disasters. It feels good to be able to offer this loving energy in times of need.

One of the side effects of the attunements is an increased ability of our psychic senses. We are often able to see more with our third eye and hear more with our psychic hearing. All of our psychic senses will be enhanced. This helps us in our sessions to connect with our client and offer insight to that person for their own personal awakening.

The Third Degree Level has been compared to The Masonic Thirty Third Degree. This attunement multiplies the energy you channel ten times as much as the Second Degree attunement and fully aligns you with the Reiki Ray. The Reiki Ray is the Fifth Ray of Truth. It is called the Emerald Ray. Many people will see this color while in Reiki sessions. It works to open our heart to unconditional love. Energy is just energy until it is transmuted through the heart of unconditional love. Then it can be healing energy. You are taught the Master Symbols in this level. These Master symbols will help you to heal on the spirit level as well as allowing you to pass along the attunements. All of these Master symbols are keys to healing mysteries and you will receive more esoteric information regarding their uses. You may receive the Third Degree level attunement even if you do not wish to teach.

If you want to teach, I offer Master level training. You will participate in my classes as a student teacher. You will learn the secrets of passing the attunements. You will also be taught how to harmonize yourself with the essence of Reiki's unconditional love so you may channel information from Spirit Reiki Masters if you so choose.

One of the really wonderful things about Reiki is you do not need anything but yourself and your intention. No little black bag, no herbs to boil, and no elixirs to swallow. After receiving the Reiki attunements your hands become like the jumper cables of God.

Reiki enhances other healing modalities you may be using.

If you are ready to move to a higher level of healing work and want to accelerate your spiritual growth The Reiki Way may be for you.

Today there are so many more Reiki practitioners and Masters than when I was introduced to Reiki years ago. It is a just and beautiful thing that Reiki is spreading across our globe in such a massive wave.

Here are a Few Things to Look for When Choosing a Reiki Master:

Usui Reiki attunements are beautiful rituals that have been passed down through specific teachings from Dr. Usui, through the lineage in painstaking accuracy. These rituals should never be taken away from, or altered.

Usui Reiki is NEVER Taught Multiple Levels at a Time.

It would not only be incorrect as a Usui practice, but also unkind, to truly attune one to Reiki One and Two, or Two and Three at the same time. Each true attunement is followed by a cleanse and taking two energy level cleanses on at one time would be overwhelming to a person's body. No true Reiki Master would attempt this practice.

Reiki Attunements Must be Done in Person and are Energy and Time Intensive Rituals.

I do not know a Reiki Master that has enough stamina, myself included, to attune more than (4) Level one recipients per day. If you are in a room of with 20 people for a Reiki One or Two attunement, you are probably not being attuned correctly according to Dr. Usui.

Your Reiki is a god-given ability that you already possess. The role of a Reiki Master is to assist you in remembering your abilities. Although Reiki is of the light of God, everything is attracted to the light, protection while performing Reiki is of the utmost importance.

Reiki and alcohol should never, never be used in the same body at the same time, this goes for recipients and practitioners.
