Interviews to Awaken the Mind

A blast from the past for #Throwback Thursday. I am rerunning these interviews as I feel you could benefit from other peoples experiences. Realizing now, I did these interviews to prove to myself I was not a wack-a-do, makes me chuckle. Then again, I still have a hard time telling people I am emphatic and can tune into someone who's not even in the room! The journey continues.

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 discuss them here.

      Wendy Servi- Intuitive Healer

      Wendy Servi- Intuitive Healer

This month I chose a “newbie”. I have known Wendy for most of my life so I can see that her 29/11 numerology describes her well. Wendy’s 11 energy of “double creativity and confidence” comes through with her sense of humor, spot on comedic timing, her problem solving abilities and leadership skills (1 energy!). When I did Wendy's Life Purpose reading and discovered her healing abilities, the reading was a confirmation not a revelation. At the time, it was not something she was ready to share with others.  I am honored that she shared this personal information with me. I am ecstatic that she wants to share it with us!  

Wendy thanks for taking time to chat with us. I know you are busy planning your wedding. Congratulations, by the way.  

Tricia: Could you start by describing how you understand your intuitive gifts?
Wendy: My first experience was about 7 years ago but I didn’t know what it was at the time. This past year I have had a physical sensation in my body, like the hairs standing up on my neck, or I get stopping abruptly in mid breath. Negative feelings are the strongest and sometimes I don't know what "it" is. In one such instance I knew the person talking to me was not telling me the truth. It made me want to leave the room...the feeling was so intense I could not get out of there fast enough. Recently I found myself "knowing" before the person came into my office that their spouse had recently passed away.

I don't exactly know how to articulate my healing ability. People have come to me with pains or I've noticed something about them that they had not realized. Using my hands I can find the issues in their body. Sometimes I apply pressure and sometimes it is a light touch. One time I could feel a lot of heat coming from my hands.

I’ve recently noticed people coming to me with their personal stuff and it annoyed me at first. I have been told that I "missed my true calling and should've been a counselor or psychologist". I laughed at that suggestion because it came after I had mentioned my weakness in healing the spirit. When you acknowledge your weakness, or ask for help, you just might be presented with opportunities and not realize it.

Another ability I have yet to figure out is a ringing in my ear.

Tricia: I love what you said “When you acknowledge your weakness, or ask for help, you just might be presented with opportunities and not realize it.” Thanks for reminding us that we are not alone in this. Because people have already come to you for help, do you feel this is a request from Spirit to use your intuitive abilities to help others? You did say you were annoyed about it at first but how do you feel about it now?
Wendy: I honestly can’t say that I feel it is a request to help others, I almost feel like it's an answer to what has been the most important aspect to me as I have gone through my careers. I am unsure how to feel about it, there are too many emotions to pin point. I have to remind myself that if there are things that keep repeating, like people complaining or all their spouses dying, that I am missing the message, or I am not listening correctly. I laughed at myself, I am unsure how to feel about it, huh, dork....I feel unsure.

Tricia: Since your understanding of your abilities is new, only in the last year, will you seek more knowledge?
Wendy: Yes. I had started searching other websites at the beginning of your website development and have read the other interviews you have. And of course my number one knowledge provider right now is you! Thank you by the way!

Tricia: What would be your advice to those who are experiencing intuitive and healing abilities for the first time?  
Wendy: My advice would be work on letting go of the fear. The fear you are wrong, the fear you will be judged or rejected, the fear that you might be seen as crazy.... It takes time and work, but all of those things will happen no matter what you do or don't do, so fear is pointless. 

Tricia: That is great advice Wendy. All my love and light to you on this journey. Mahalo!

Do you have abilities you have not shared? Want to come out of the closet? Need more proof that there are more of us other there? Here are a two other interviews I did:

What's going on?

Whats Going On this week, June 18, 2017?

Repeated numbers, weird ‘symptoms’, gurus and Father’s Day.

As I began wondering what all these things have in common on this Father’s Day, my own father came to mind. He taught me many things but, mostly he encouraged my writing when I as a kid. I didn’t clearly hear this message from him until I was in my 40’s and not until 3 years after he left this earthly plain.

Ah ha!

The light bulb went on. I see the thread of all these things.

Repeated numbers.
Weird Symptoms.
Gurus Messages.
My dad.

First I will go into a bit more detail about each of the messages this week.

Repeated numbers:

I often see the question about repeated numbers. What does it mean to see 3 digit numbers, 111, 222, 333, 444, etc.? When I first noticed them in 2011 I was studying dream interpretation and looking for answers about life in general. I recall seeing 4:44 on the clock in my car and mentioned it to a friend. I believe that was the first time I heard Doreen Virtue being mentioned.

The repeated numbers come and go. The most noticeable being in 2013 when I 5:55 came to me several times a day for several days. I knew 5 meant change and I was not feeling well for several days but I didn’t understand I was more sick than I realized and needed to go to the doctor. I waited it out, didn’t honor myself and got so sick a trip to the ER was required. This is my interpretation of the repeated numbers and unique to me- not everyone who sees 555 is getting sick. Now when I see it I say, “Oh good change, I’m ready, I’m paying attention.” 

For a long time after I would go looking for the answers, trying to figure out the message of the repeated numbers. Each numerologist/intuitive/psychic having their own interpretation or they just repeating Doreen Virtues interpretation. Then I began to intuit my own interpretation. I’ve discovered repeated numbers in a numerology chart grabs my attention so applying so I pay special consideration to them for the reading I give.

333 Repeated numbers, Numerology by Tricia Gunberg 

333 Repeated numbers, Numerology by Tricia Gunberg 

Currently, a day doesn’t go by without seeing a triple repeated number. Just yesterday 333 came up 3 times and the number 3 was in my daily tarot card with advice to meditate with 3 candles, 3 flowers and 3 incense sticks. The number 3, by the way, is creative expression and communication. More specifically for me, it means writing…just as my dad told me to do!

In short, repeated numbers is an indicator that you are paying attention, or being more mindful. You’ll find the meaning for yourself, allow the answers to come, getting quiet and knowing there is no need to force. To get a brief list of numerology for numbers 1-9 read my book.

Weird Symptoms:
I share these with you for several reasons. One, as an empath I need to keep track of what's going on so I remember to ask “Is this mine?”, because most if the time it is not. Second, its a good way for me to do readings for myself, I have forever (2010 with Heal Yourself Louise Hay) been linking symptoms to old beliefs I can let go of. Lastly, maybe you have something weird going on and you can relate. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll reach out to me so I am not alone in my weirdness.


The symptoms I have been having and as well as odd cravings have me a bit baffled.  My intuitive abilities are ‘empathic’ meaning I get a feeling in my body which is a translation of what is going on in someone else. I in turn attempt to interpret the message. This is how I do my readings. Lately, I don’t even need to do the ceremonial ‘placing my hands over someone’, it just starts happening. Last month, an hour prior to an appointment I began having a headache.  This worried me as I work hard on not have any interference in my own body while doing readings. (Right down to planning when/what I eat, brush my teeth, shower, etc.) As the headache intensified I wondered if I needed to reschedule the client. The thought came to me, first as a question “Is this mine?” then as a statement, “This is not mine.” The headache began to subside. The headache was a message for my client- so glad I didn’t make a decision based on fear and cancel the appointment! 

Another new development is a new sensation in both my hands and feet. These occurrences have not gone without a witness, I might be to chicken to share them here if I hadn’t. I’d describe the sensation as heat. Heat from my hands is not new. Many of my client’s report feeling heat from my hands and I am aware of it as an empathic message during a reading. What is different now is the intensity of the heat and the fact that I am not in the process of doing a reading when this occurs. My feet have also just ‘turned on’, two people describing it as heat, another describing as a tingling sensation.

Now for the cravings. I’ve been craving cigarettes for about 8 months- but never indulging. I’ve been breathing in and out as if l were smoking has sorta helped. Then I got the craving to use salt or sand on the palms of my hands. Almost daily as if they itch (I wouldn’t describe it that way though.)and the scrubbing relives it, slowly easing away and creating a feeling of ease and relief. Same for my feet. And I must, can’t tell you how nuts it makes me feel if I don’t, I must walk in rough sand for several minutes several times a week. The had scrubbing seems to relive the cigarette craving too. Both of these cravings make me feel a bit nuts or is it the manner in which I escape them that make me feel nuts?  I wonder if this is how crazy people start out or how OCD starts. I indulge, but what if it starts taking me over?  I mentioned it to a trusted person who does energy work and she seemed to think it was a natural way for my body to ask for clearing and grounding. With my new stronger empathic abilities, more clearing is necessary. (click here for more clearing and grounding ideas)


I had an ‘er duh’ moment when deciding that most of the gurus I follow are saying the same message, just in a slightly different way.

I’ve been reading Eckart Tolle (I highly recommend 'listening' to his books) again, this time with more understanding than ever. Eckart came into my awareness around 2014 or so. I recall reading it thinking it was like Shakespeare and was in need of someone to interpret it. I now can hear a thread of the similar message of Abraham Hicks teachings and it makes sense to me now.

Abraham teaches us to say “Yes” to joy as often as we can. Eckart Tolle teaches us to do one of three things: accept, enjoy or be enthusiastic about everything. Basically, and how he puts it, you say “yes” to every moment that occurs. My study of numerology, my gratitude journal (on day 66), my practices of both yoga and meditation has helped with this. Also, reminding myself that thoughts are things, currently with added depth of meaning, so I continue to use it.

Life is happening FOR you, not ‘to’ you. Seeing messages and gifts in every moment takes practice. This also repeats the theme of the Law of Attraction. You know this to be true: like attracts like. If everyone around you is accepting, enjoying and enthusiastic it means YOU are those things.

Not overnight, not all at once. As a process that could take years, decades, a life time. I am watching my life unfold with these new awareness’s, chronicling them. It’s been fun and interesting. Especially the sharing part- that’s been exciting (when scary turns good). Many days I am not even close. Having more minutes of resistance is quiet obvious. That is only because I now have more moments of joy then ever and I know I have quadrupled my enthusiasm for life.

When you take moments of silence you are telling the Universe “Yes”. “Yes” I am ready. “Yes”, to who you are.  As I take the long way around the block to make my point. None of this information, from the important message to write to the seemingly unconnected symptoms, would have come to me unless I had taken moments to be quiet. Not minutes and certainly not hours. Just a few moments here and there when I would allow an answer to come or just to allow awareness.

Say “Yes” to what is happening in every moment, counsels Tolle.  I’ve been suggesting, “Say Yes to who you are,” of course it’s a good starting point. And Abraham advises; say “yes” to things that bring you JOY!

Just checking my meditation prompt for today and:  And here we have the message AGAIN: “Say Yes”, read more of this excellent post here: Angel Razbar 6/18/2017

Love, Light and “Yes” to who you are,
