In my work as a clairvoyant, I've had amazing psychic coincidences. And they don't always come through me. This one came through a client's dream...
An hour before she arrived, I was chopping some garlic for a marinade…and I know this will sound strange, but at the time, I was thinking about puke.
You see, a while ago a stranger threw up on our back stoop. The event was an anomaly as life goes around here, but nonetheless disturbing. Anyway, after cleaning it up, I cleansed the energy around my reading area by laying some crystals along the windowsill and burning some sage.
And so it was while chopping that garlic—just before my client arrived—that I was thinking, "I hope the crystals worked." And it was at this moment that I received a text from a friend in Hawaii that read:
Clients often ask me if phone readings are as good as in-person sessions. I feel they are, as the psychic mind is non-local; it’s able to transcend time and space. As a medium of communication, the phone commands your attention to the conversation. Since psychic ability is largely about being present and paying attention, I find the phone conducive to the process of a psychic reading.
But recently I’ve come up with a way to make the phone reading feel a little more like an in-person session— and my far-away clients love it. Those who’ve come in person have had the benefit of viewing my unique postcard tarot, which serves as a kind of modern tarot deck or symbolic photo album. It gives you a visual representation of ideas so you can see a little bit more of what I see.
If you can be by your computer while we talk on the phone, I will email you a JPEG of 13 unique postcards selected to represent a chapter of your personal story. It's a bit like reviewing a dream, with a guide to interpret the symbolism.
It’s been a difficult decision, but I’ve decided to discontinue 30-minute readings in favor of 60-minute sessions, which comprise the bulk of my work. Sometimes clients want a “quick question” answered, like: Will I get a job in June? When will I find a house? Will he come back to me?
Energetically and administratively, short readings have become too challenging for me to accommodate.
I’ve learned that easily asked questions are not so easily answered. Actually, ‘indicated’ might be a better word than ‘answered’, since indicators are what I work with.
Assuming that a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer is to be had of a question, the indicators may imply one of them. But there’s a process involved to arriving at those outcomes. It seems to me more constructive for my client to draw those conclusions herself.
Short psychic readings feel a bit like bread that’s been kneaded and proofed, but not yet baked. Microwaving it wouldn’t turn out a great loaf of bread.
While there are no simple answers to life’s dilemmas, the symbols in our dreams do offer us solutions. Through them, we can go to the heart of the matter, exploring the treasures history has to offer, and seeing into possibilities.
A client may be struggling with an oppressive job, unrequited love, or a lost sense of purpose. Her questions could be: Is it time to quit? Would he be good to me? Why haven’t I fallen in love? Should I go back to college?
In my sessions, I am less interested in providing simple answers, as I am offering helpful tools, providing prospective insights, and illuminating available paths.
I do this by asking for your spirit guide to collaborate with my spirit guide in order to send me a daydream relevant to your story. Before you tell me anything, I share this dream with you, along with the message I interpret it to mean.
As part of my psychic development practice, I play a game with the Universe: I ask a symbol -unique enough to be considered special- to show itself three times.
The symbols I follow may be simple, but they always lead to eloquent and surprising messages.
My first pang of attraction to 'the frilly, capital letter A' came while I was working at a friend's house in Hawai'i. At a nearby cafe, I'd picked up an entertainment magazine called 'Abstract'. It had a glossy green cover embossed with a giant, ornately scripted A. For some reason, I was drawn to it. I wondered if it would make a good symbol for my game.
Coincidences don't happen to us. They happen with us.
The Universe communicates with you through the intuitive dimensions of Coincidences, Dreams, and Déjà vu. And by ‘Dreams’, I not only mean the dreams you have at night, but daydreams, hunches; anything imagined.
Isn’t the symbolic language that plays out in our imaginations worth interpreting? Might that content be designed to help us see opportunities, navigate relationships, accept circumstances, and achieve our goals, etc.?

Around Thanksgiving, I wondered about a psychic story I could share for my New Year’s blog. I was looking for something that might illuminate the benefits of what might be called Conscientious Psychic Dreaming. I hadn’t been particularly attentive to my dreams at the time, so I had little of note to draw from.
I thought, "A prophetic dream will come, and when it does, I’ll follow where it leads me.” This is all you need to do; call out for the dream, and have the intent to catch it.
A few days later, on my first night of a month-long trip to Taipei, the dream I called for came.
Each client who sits with me for a psychic reading wishes for one thing above all. Often, it’s for a loving partner, a satisfying job, a feeling of fulfillment, happiness, health, a baby, or justice.
Sometimes people ask me, "Do you see my heart's desire, Derek? Is it in the cards?"
I couldn't in good conscience play The Ruler of Your Destiny. But I am willing to play the Muse!
In sharing what I see when I read for a client, I'm respectful that my ideas may carry influence. I'm careful to be practical, yet innovative as I conjure my visions. Sometimes I imagine sprinkling a little pixie dust on my client before she heads out the door.
A woman in her thirties comes to see me. She's been single for some time. She is anxious and unhappy about her relationship status. The idea of a lover is enigmatic to her. Privately, she feels flawed.
To cover all this up, she unduly pours herself into her job. Slowly, she drifts into a critical stance towards men. She's disheartened by the chasm that exists between her dream of life, and the actual life she's living.
She fires her questions at me as if she were a machine gun: "Don't you see children? When do you see marriage for me? I want to get married."
On any given night, you could have the most horrible nightmare. And were you to get a traditional tarot reading, the dreaded Death card could pop out of the deck at any moment! Or worse, the Ten of Swords, which features a man who’s been stabbed ten times in the back!
Naturally, our reaction is to avoid thinking about such terrible things. But what if the symbols in our scary dreams and tarot cards are trying to help us with our problems?
A client who recently sat with me for an in-person reading instantly recoiled when a Brown Tree Snake slithered out of my Postcard Tarot Deck. The Postcard Tarot is a signature deck of modern art cards I've collected that serves as an agency of universal communication.
The cards have an uncanny way of reflecting both details, and broad themes in my client's life. People have been taking pictures of them. One woman came to see me a year after her first reading, and said, "See this picture of Mexico from my last reading? I never thought I'd ever go, but a friend of mine invited me on a trip there!"
At the beginning of my sessions, I blindly select twelve cards (from about 400), and lay them out in a circle representing my client's astrological chart. I find that the symbols portrayed on my cards communicate in a way that is stark and relatable. A suitcase conveys travel; an ocean suggests abroad; a model highlights beauty; a turtle says that a project is going slowly.
The snake from this particular reading stood out from the rest of the pictures that were laid out that day. There was a bowl of fruit, a couple kissing over lunch, Stonehenge. With a little investigation, I knew each of those pictures would tell me a piece of my client's story. But first I had to address that snake.
