Interviews to Awaken the Mind

Interviews with Intuitives

To provide guidance to those who are becoming familiar with their intuitive abilities this platform offers a look into how others have come to know and work with their abilities. The universal energy (available to everyone) that is referred to here as “Intuitive”, comes in many forms. We will describe and discus them here.

My first interview is apropos as she is my very first intuitive friend. I am pleased to introduce you to my Claracognizant friend Nikki Niznik from Durango, Colorado. Speaking in terms of Numerology, she is a 32/5 and true to her "5" energy, loves travel and adventure. It was a blessing to have Nikki enter my life in 2011. The Universe continues to show me her importance as a friend, a fellow intuitive, a mentor and animal lover. Welcome Nikki.

Tricia: Nikki could you describe your intuitive gifts to us?

Nikki: I'm an Intuitive Healer. I am Claracognizant-I just know what I know and don't know how I know it and Claracention- which is empathic, feeling abilities. As an Intuitive Healer, I do hands on healing for people and animals. The empathic or Claracention ability, is that I feel the physical and emotional pain of others and I just know what to do which is the Claracognizant ability. Healing energy, which is warm heat from my hands, flows through me from Divine Source. I can feel this energy when I place my hands on them. The energy goes into them where ever it is needed. Using my abilities together provides me with the ability to heal others.

Tricia: Have you always been aware of your gifts and your ability to heal others?

Nikki: Well, I have always known I had these gifts and used them in the past but didn't know what they were or how to explain to people what was going on with me until later in life. In September 2012, I asked a friend who is a Reiki Master Teacher/Practitioner to teach me. That's when I really started to open up with my healing abilities.  I have come to know that part of my calling was to help people cross-over from this life to the next when it is their time to die.  I consider it an honor to be there with them at the end of their life here on earth.

Tricia: That is so wonderful that you use your gifts to heal and to help people at end of life. Do you use your gifts in other ways? Say, for your own guidance?   

Nikki: My gifts help guide me through life every day. No matter how big or small the task, when I ask for help it is given. My Angels and Guides are there, guiding, protecting and supporting me with Divine Love. With my Claracention gift, the answers may come to me in different ways. For example, I get sensations in my body that alerts me to pay attention. There are times when a stranger will be my guidance. When a total stranger walks up to me to say something, I know that it is an important message.

Tricia: As you know, people’s awareness and acceptance of their intuitive gifts vary drastically. How would you describe your relationship to Claracognizant, Claracention and Healing gifts you possess?

Nikki: My relationship with my gifts is my relationship with God because that is where it comes from.

Tricia: Thank you for sharing your personal experience with your gifts. I didn’t make the connection of vivid dreams as an intuitive ability until recently and like you I was not aware of my healing abilities until after my Reiki instruction. What advice would you give to those who are just learning about their abilities for the first time?

Nikki: Educate yourself. There are many books and materials out there to read, classes to attend, and internet sources to read, like Tricia’s website. Find someone you feel comfortable with that can work with you. You are not alone. Follow your heart and stay with the love. Have faith and trust yourself. Remember who you really are and everything will fall into place.

Tricia: Nikki, that is really good advice for those just starting to explore their abilities. Thank you for your time and letting us glimpse into your personal intuitive journey. Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Nikki:  It is never too late to begin the Spiritual Journey of Self Discovery.  Everything happens for a reason and we ALL have these gifts. We are so much more than our physical bodies, we just need to go within.

Tricia: If anyone would like to know more about your Reiki Healing services and help with end of life transition, how do they contact you?

Nikki: You may contact me through my email address:

Tricia: Mahalo, Nikki
