an interview with Witchypoo

Witchypoo, who fell in line behind me at Citizen of the Month's Great Interview Experiment is a groovy sort of gal. She has two interesting sons and is a professional psychic. K joked that she should have been able to figure out what my questions were before I asked them. But, ask them I did. And here they are:

Would you consider yourself superstitious?

Not really. My grampie was extremely superstitious, though, and I would taunt him when I was a child. One cold day in February, I teased him by putting an umbrella up while in the house. He was horrified, and that day, I fell through the ice on the lake. I tried to sneak back into the house without him seeing me.
The only other superstitious behaviour I have is "Step on a crack,you break your mother's back". She died almost three years ago, and I still hear her making fun of me about it.

In your work as a reader/healer, how is information presented to you?
Do you hear it? See things?

I often "feel things" in a physical manner, If you have neck pain, I feel it as if it were my own. That is the first clue that I have a good connection. Then I utilize my clairvoyance to see things. Clairsentience seems to bundle itself with clairvoyance. I seem to know what the images I get mean. In a tarot reading, the images are usually symbolic, so that before I look at the cards, I know what area of concern the question will be in. When I get more deeply into the reading, I can see surroundings if it is called for (remote viewing).

I've read a lot about Ass Burger you see a great difference in the way people deal with Asperger kids now? Autism and Asperger's are written and spoken of so much more frequently now - I'm wondering if you feel the public has shifted their perception.

When Ass Burger Boy was born, there was no information available. He wasn't diagnosed until he was nine years old, although the pediatricians found him extremely interesting. Nowadays, there is a wealth of information, schools have programs designed for this type of disorder, and it cannot be ignored. My son had it rough, because we had to work with teams of doctors, educators, and counselors to design a program that would deliver the education he was entitled to. I found it discouraging, because dealing with education administrators to free up money for his education was frustrating. The school board I dealt with was later summarily fired because they were not doing their job properly. It gave me no satisfaction because I thought of all the others that their ignorance impacted negatively.

Do you believe in life after death? I would ask you this no matter what you did for a living....

I certainly do! I communicate with spirits. I believe that the body is a vessel for the life force, and the essence of the entity is intact, but no longer using that particular body after death.

How did you start blogging? Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because, really? I'm easily amused. I like to tell stories, and I thought that people might be interested to hear the stories of a psychic who has a child with Asperger's Syndrome. I found myself commenting on other people's blogs, and noticed that most commenters had their own blogs. Since I have several websites, I just used a domain name I already had on an existing server and installed WordPress.
My main intention of blogging was to build a bridge between people like myself and those who consider me to be a Tool of Satan because of my profession.

I noticed that you have only had your psychic geek blog for a few
months - but in your archives you mention blogging several years ago- discuss.

I did write a few short blogs many years ago, but that was before comments and interaction. I have several abandoned blogs out there from 1998-2005. I no longer have the URL's, so they are floating somewhere in cyberspace. This blog is the most consistently attended to, to date.

Tell me more about 'remote viewing.'

Remote viewing is all about intent. You close your eyes, get into an altered state, and ask spirit to take you where you need to be. There was a U.S Army operation (Stargate) that utilized this process at one time. They wanted to know things that spy planes couldn't tell them. It was very successful, but is now shut down. I read The Stargate Chronicles by Joseph McMoneagle. It wasn't quite the same as my experiences, but worked on the same principles.

If you could have any OTHER occupation, what would it be?

Geek. I graduated with honours from geek school. I worked hard for it, and found that the culture does not welcome older folk. Other than that, teacher. One of my guides is a teaching guide, and told me that I was to teach the teachers. I wasn't shown exactly how to do that, but I believe that my Archangel Michael activations come close.

Is it difficult to shut off your mind? My psychic friend worked hard to learn how to stop the information from overwhelming her - I guess I'm wondering if this is a common issue.

I'm very aware of overload, and the need to have friends. I don't want people to think I'm reading them all the time, so I set out my own rules. I only receive what I set out to receive, unless it is something very close and personal that fills me with dread. That doesn't happen too often, thankfully. I make it a point to be as grounded as possible, and that helps.
Every once in a while, the odd thing presents itself and cannot be ignored, but on the whole, I am pretty comfortable with the way I have separated my work and my regular life.

I'm not sure I understand what the UFO sighting and your heightened skills have to do with each other - can you explain?

I see the UFO incident as a trigger. Shortly after it happened, I began to have amazing spiritual experiences. The sighting was such a profound experience for me that I feel it brought these on. I guess you kind of had to be there to get it.

Isn't she fascinating? I'm looking forward to reading more about her.

(Hee! She said it was okay, people.)

And wait, there's ANOTHER psychic type person with an Aspie kid out there somewhere? I think I need to meet this person. Although it sounds like we have very different philosophies/approaches to the whole psychic thing. But still.

Witchypoo is one of my faves. There is a notion going around that autism and psychic ablities are linked. Ooo! I think I got a new blog topic.

You did a great job of mining my archives and coming up with excellent questions. Thank you. I wish you would burn a feed, so I can subscribe. I never seem to get to the blogs that aren't in my reader.
