What are the biggest differences between a good psychic and a great psychic?

Tricia Gunberg, Intuitive Healer at Self-published Author (2011-present)

Answered Jan 5

BIGGEST DIFFERENCE: method and delivery…oh, and price. Note: I would not judge psychic by price.

I say this because both my method and delivery have changed for me drastically over the last nine years. My first several numerology readings were hand written and only $25! I had to look everything up (second guessing myself) and I questioned every ‘intuitive’ hit I got. In addition, I did a lot of ‘editing’ of the words I heard. Now, I have mini general readings prerecorded and offer it to you for only $5, just send me an email request.

I have a firm belief that any psychic you are guided to spend time with will have an important message for you. Does the depth of detail differ from someone just starting to learn the craft then a psychic who has been doing readings for three decades? - Certainly. Does that matter? Hell no.

BUT, there is a caveat-

It is just as important that the person being read is open to the information and the method. (Sometimes I scan people with my hands…most are okay with this, some freak out a bit.)

If you think someone is NOT qualified, they are not.
If you are drawn to someone and think they have something to offer- they will.


Here is an example:

Two years ago, while I was making the rounds on my book launch, I gave free readings with a purchase of my book. The reading was for a friend of a friend. She sat with her arms folded (my first clue that she was not fully open), I was getting something about ‘mother’ as I did an intuitive Health and Wellness Numerology Reading. This confused me because I usually get health related information, thus the title. I asked her some questions to get clarity on the message, to which she said, “I am to ask you questions, you are not to ask me questions.”(Second clue she was not open.) I said one more thing about her mother and she said, “My mother is a bitch and has nothing to do with what I need.” So with this final statement I stopped giving her a psychic reading and gave her a numerology reading. She didn’t want to hear what I had to say, she didn’t like my method and decided I was not very good at what I do.

You will find the guidance you need, Leslie? I am hearing the word “TRUST”. Do you need to trust yourself or others?

Love and Light,

My yoga has been most beneficial to me for tuning into my intuitive abilities. Here, I get an extra boost while practicing OUTSIDE! June/2019 Atascadero, CA

My yoga has been most beneficial to me for tuning into my intuitive abilities. Here, I get an extra boost while practicing OUTSIDE! June/2019 Atascadero, CA


I’m guessing you wanted more than a one word answer so I will elaborate:

There are many books on the subject (I have not written one yet. but I have created a workshop) and a few of my recommendations included at the end, but let me give you a full answer first. My yoga practice has helped me immensely. The reason meditation works so well is because you learn to cut the chatter. You begin to discern the difference between the chatter and your inner voice/higher guidance. As meditation calms the mind, insight floods in. Others say when you quiet the mind you can hear your heart! Awe.

My dream study began after a psychic told me I could get answers to my own questions in my dreams. Now, I apply what I learned about symbols to the visions I get while doing Reiki healings.

My training as a Reiki Healer, prompted by learning about myself through Numerology, blew the lid off my intuitive abilities. The first time I closed my eyes while doing a Reiki healing and could ‘see’ like in a dream, it totally blew me away. I was so glad that I had studied dream interpretation for the previous years…note that dream interpretation was for selfish reasons as I had no plans except to get answers for myself. The same is true for my Reiki training…I was only going to use it on my cats! Using it to help people has been a beautiful blessing.

As I began my own study of metaphysics I came across Sandra Choquette book and it inspired me to buy my first deck of tarot cards:

First deck of tarot oracle cards.JPG

The day I bought this deck my co-worker asked for a reading! It was a spot on reading that made her cry tears of joy.

(As a side note, I believe in the body/mind connection and am dealing with clearing out repressed anger*. My liver had given me this message before but I didn’t hear it until now. I’ve learned that when you have liver issue it can cause anger! But, I knew this too….that is where we get ‘angry drunk’ from, some people can not tolerate alcohol and their liver express its self. My point is, messages come in MANY forms and if you get distracted by how, when, where and try to use your mind to figure it out- you will not be able to! )

Thank you for this question, I forget my beautiful journey and how lovingly it has been rolling out for me. I get upset and frustrated at myself (*I know- I’m work on this daily too!) for not being further along. Tears of joy are rolling down my face just now while I recall the beginning, so thank you again.

If I had to pick the most important thing for you to learn, it would be to get to know yourself better and have the awareness of your abilities be a bonus. ‘Know’ how much sleep you need, what type of exercise, what makes your heart sign…etc. Here are a few books that helped me on my journey. If you are a 1 Life Path or have repeated 1’s , I highly suggest lots of movement and exercise. For FREE numerology go to my website. If you have 2’s or are a 2 Life Path your sensitivity needs to be appreciated and addressed. If 3 is in your chart your creativity needs attending to, as does your ability to get distracted. …that reminds me, I have work to do (ha! I’m a 37/10…).

Q and A Saturday- July 13, 2019

As a professional psychic, how do you sleep at night knowing you're taking advantage of gullible and vulnerable people?

Tricia Gunberg, Intuitive Healer at Self-published Author (2011-present)

Answered Dec 10, 2018

This is one of those situations where you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Since your questions is actually one I pose to Western Medical Doctors and Politicians, I suppose I have it coming. I too assume most of them are dirty thieves. Also, it reminds me of an high school event when my classmates were harassing me about a personal decision I made. At the time I just explained myself to them and the following year some of them came back to apologize and expressed admiration for my maturity.

What the hell…here goes.

Reiki healing Tricia Gunberg.JPG

First a question. Has one of my clients complained to you about me? If so, please direct them to me so I can remedy the situation. I did have one client upset with me because I would not answer the question, “Will my daughter get a divorce.” (It’s not her business and not what I do.) I stopped the reading and gave her money back. Second, you have made a lot of assumptions here, I’ll let that go and invite you to my Facebook page so you can read the comments and compliments directly from my clients and followers. You may ask respectful questions there, but you may not be a sass mouth.

You sound offended, but I will not apologize for what I do or who I am. I was given many ‘clare’ gifts and everyone I have done a reading for has expressed their appreciation for them and me. I have helped a lot of people, some for free. If you think my Facebook page is a scam then go to Hospice of Kona’s Facebook page, you will find compliments to me for my work there because I have donated many free readings over the last 5 years to help those who are dealing with grief and pain.

I’m not sure if you were looking for a fight or a free reading and as I am a lover not a fighter, here is a free channeled reading for you:

reiki image.jpg

“Since you have chosen to use your leadership skills in this way (harassing others instead of uplifting) you may find that life could become harsh towards you. This is not karma nor ‘you got it coming’, - this is energy. What you put out, you will get back. If you cheat others, you will attract cheaters. When you are kind to others, you will find kindness. Those that describe this as the Law of Attraction are correct, you do indeed attract the same energy you expel. We are not scolding you, just informing you. Informing you of your ability to lead others to greatness, you have no time to bicker and point out what others are doing. You have work to do young man. The work you are here to do is to inspire others. You got lucky with this one- you inspired her to consider your question with kindness and generosity. Go now and do the work you were sent here to do. With kind regards, your Spirit Guides.”

Well, there you go.

Love and Light,

Q and A Saturday- July 6, 2019

Is there any validity to precognitive dreaming?

Tricia Gunberg, Writing self help and spiritual content since 2014 ·


Short answer: YES

Long answer: 
I am honing in on your word ‘validity’ which, according to Siri is, “the quality of being logically sound.” Precognitive dreaming is logical to me because it happens to me.

When I was younger, I would wake with the feeling that I needed to check on something. After a dream log assignment in high school I started remembering my dreams and would know what I needed to check on. This lead me to calling my mother because it was often a family member. I would casually ask how everything was as not to freak her out and she would say, “Did you have one your dreams again?” It was mind blowing to me; my catholic mother took my dreams as valid! To be honest, nothing ever earth shattering happened in my dreams or as a result. It seemed to me, I just needed to either connect with my mom or just connect with the person in my dream.

I go into more detail on one of more vivid dreams here: O is for Oracle

For me, my next questions were, “What is this dream ability for? What is the purpose?” Here we have the rub, I’ve been trying to answer this question for 15 or more years. But, let’s not discount the connecting with people part. If anything, I can be grateful for just this aspect. Connecting with my mother was/is important, period.

Having and accepting these dreams were the first step in accepting myself as an intuitive healer (I learned this about myself through Numerology). I could never have accepted that my mind could receive and understand valid, accurate and helpful information about others.

Here is an example if you are not familiar with my work:

While mediating on a client prior to her reading, I got the word ‘direction’. I was confused by this because my client expressed a need for the healing aspect of reiki and I assumed it was physical. During the reiki healing, I was directed to stop at her elbow. She shared with me that she has been having so much pain in that elbow that she has been avoiding exercise and even went to the doctor.

Random Google search on dream meaning of elbow: Elbow. The elbow represents the capacity for radical change in direction in what we do in our lives regarding our own path, our goals. It represents a professional change or one that concerns our objectives.

As defined by Louise Hay: Represents changing directions and accepting new experiences.

(You don’t even need to look it up if you remember how to signal a turn while riding your bike…its all about the elbow! )

I wish I could tell you what was going on with this client (too personal and I won’t do it) so you could fully understand how important this message was for her and how much validation she got from this simple word: direction. You’ll just have to trust me that this message was timely and very important. We received other information during the session and a clear approach to her next steps in healing.

None of this could have been possible, nor the other hundreds of people I have helped, if I had not decided that precognitive dreams were valid. More important than being able to connect with people and help others, is my ability to trust myself. Trusting my ability is present so I can support others, -this is so important, but trusting myself when I get information- well, 
this is P R I C E L E S S.

Ultimately, what is most important:

Precognitive dreaming lead me to having a better relationship with myself.

New Moon Intentions....are you ready to set some by Thursday (April 4)?

Are you afraid to wish your big wishes?

It could be sabotaging your success.




Prior to September 30,2017 my definition of success was purely career oriented. All my career achievements would make everything else happen. Even after years of studying Abraham Hicks and Law of Attraction this mindset persisted! While attending Stephanie Beebe’s workshop Saturday, a new word was added to my definition of success.

That new word has also taken on new meaning.

Lead by Stephanie in a visualization exercise, I saw visions of things I’ve never seen before. I was holding hands with people I didn’t think possible, having fun experiences with loved ones, and feeling so much love it was almost overwhelming.  

The experience shook me. How will I add this new word,  which felt to me like “family”, to my success goals? And, why hadn’t many of my success goals I had set in the past not come to fruition? Was it because my heart and the Universe knew better?  

Maybe, I thought, I haven’t been ‘successful’ as I want to be because I don’t know what the true definition of success is for me.

Okay, this is a bitter pill to swallow, but why is this happening?

Uggghhh! Then it hit me:

 I have not allowed myself to want things. I have not allowed myself to wish big wishes! My limited beliefs have blocked me (This is Stephanie’s magik*! She can reveal to you how you do this to yourself.) from wishing them by keeping them from my awareness.

It used to bug me when Abraham Hicks asked, “Are you enjoying your wanting?” I thought I had been working on this! Ha…getting ready to be ready, still!

AND, getting to know myself better continues.

I know exactly what life event caused this block, but this doesn’t do me any good. Blame gets me nowhere.

The messages I give others are also for myself, both in 1:1’s and in my posts.

I take a few moments and I review them in my mind.

Low and behold- The same approach I have been suggesting for EVERYONE else is the same for me:

You need to know yourself, then say “yes” to it.

I know in my heart and with all of my heart, that FAMILY is part of my new vision of success!

Here is a refresher both of us in the post below. “4 Steps to Getting to Know Yourself Better”.

The path to self-actualization is an important one, a spiritual one and one I hope you’ll continue to take with me.

Love and Light, Tricia

How do I get to know myself better?


#1 Explore self-actualization tools and workshops.
Don’t limit these. Keep trying new ones even when you find ones you like. Some of my favorite: Numerology, Astrology, Intuitive Readings/Coaching, Reiki, Yoga. Oh, yes, workshops with Stephanie and my book.

Love U.jpg

#2 Spend time with yourself in Quiet and in Happiness.
Meditation is great but experience other ways too: golf by yourself, going fishing, or walking (no phone!). Make room and create awareness to increase the amount of time you are happy. Eliminate things that make you sad, angry or frustrated. (News, Social Media, People, Places, Activities)


#3 Observe your emotions.
Pay special attention to those that make you uncomfortable or you prefer not to have.  Honor them, make changes ( emotions are like gears in a car post)



#4 New Experiences!
Do something today that makes you nervous. It is important that you stretch yourself and shed light on yourself and get you out of your comfort zone.

I will be working on this for myself, doing my visualization exercise that Stephanie suggested and being more open to my wantings. The journey continues as we continue to learn how to Say YES to who you are to create MAGIK! I loved to hear from you, either here, via IM or on my Facebook page.

Love and Light,


*Magik- a technique for brining desired changes into physical manifestation. A process of crafting and shaping one’s life. Not to be confused with magic which involves cleaver illusions.  



Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday2018.JPG

I like home-made gifts. I recall my big sister making me Ziggy ceramics when I was in love with him and figurines cost $20 (that was pricey in 1985!).

Another great gift giving idea is the gift of an experience.

Recently, I heard younger people talk about this concept. It made me happy overhearing a conversation; “Oh, it is Haley’s birthday…but we can’t buy her anything because she only wants ‘experiences’.”

These young people are beginning to understand that time spent with others and in an activity, is a real gift. This is lovely. Personally, I do not need a nudge to do new things, others might. I do however need a nudge to experience new types of healing.. yep me …the Wellness Warrior who speaks of energy healing.It is time for me to dig a little deeper and try different methods. (I share the newest below.)

If you are ready to get out of your comfort zone or know someone who is ready to do the same, I invite you to consider any of the following gift ideas. I’ve included my experience after each suggestion.

Not exactly sure what you need? Book Health and Wellness Life Path reading to find direction and clarity book a session with me.


Island Spirit Day Spa

Intuitive Massage- ask for Ken, he gets intuitive hits but he does not advertise this- just ask him to share if anything comes up.
Hypnosis- Ken also does very comforting and rejuvenating hypnosis sessions.
I had the most relaxing facial ever here at Island Spirit

Yuki Agoot

Hands On Healing Massage-Her hands actually heat up during a session! The heat intensifies where you need it most.

Her massage room is beautiful, quiet and the perfect temperature.


Big Island Yoga Center

Can not say enough about this center located in Kealakekua, next to the library. The last week of each month is my favorite, they do Restorative Yoga.


This sweet little studio gives you the feeling of personal instruction, as if Yuki is your very own personal trainer. If you are considering starting a yoga practice, this is where you need to go. Being in correct alignment is so important and Yuki will watch your every move to insure your safety and comfort.


Angela SSeraphina.jpg

Angela Seraphina- Sex, Love and Relationship Therapist

This is a perfect combination of New Age healing and Clinical support. Angela takes her time with you even before you enter her beautiful space with a very insightful questionnaire. Her sound, crystal and essential oil healing made me feel like I was floating on a cloud. I feel so much love and had very clear visions and connections. You will love her, love the experience and love your self.

Trisha Dolan- Psychic

I have had readings with Trisha regularly for a decade as she is so spot on. She brought me the word Ho ‘oponopono when she herself didn’t know what it meant. She gave me important insight to a health issue I was unaware of and her great sense of humor adds a nice touch to readings.

Trisha is at the WholeExpo in Durango,CO every September. She also conducts her spot-on readings over the phone.

MJ Puleo-Quote-Banner.jpg

Dr. Marijo Puleo

I stumbled onto MJP while looking for podcasts on being Intuitive. The content of her show is incredible; she can step into the science and well as the woo-woo and give clear explanations. Listening to Mindful Living podcast helps me feel normal and her personal readings, done over the phone, will give you quiet a different perspective of your life.

Love and Light and thank-you for supporting small businesses!



In part 2 I will give my recommendations for more small business
