My seer pseudonym is Piff. I took the word for A Sudden Revelation (epiphany, and less directly, Tiffany) and shortened it to Piff, the dopest strain of weed the world has ever seen.
One of the few possessions I brought with me to Singapore when I moved there in 2011 for grad school was a Tarot deck my Mother had given to me as a child. Her father had given it to her in the Seventies and time has worn it with love and reverence. As a foreigner, reading my deck became an important ritual in order to connect and ground my psyche with familiar Archetypes. I decided to delve deeper and ordered online the book 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack. It took six weeks for the book to arrive in Singapore and when it came it felt like a revelation. Reading it was the beginning of my spiritual journey and developing my psychic abilities. It was to my delight that four years later, while living in New York City, I was able to meet, interview and take classes with Rachel.
Much of my Occult studies have developed in a similar way. There is a calling towards something and my attitude is to follow it and learn as much as I can in order to integrate it as a real tool in my work. I have studied Mayan Astrology, i Ching, Earth Wisdom, Animal Speak, etc… all over the world from Kenya to Myanmar to Northern California. I weave this cultural and spiritual knowledge into my work in a subtle way so that the readings are rich and full of meaning.
Currently, I reside in Lily Dale, NY in the same cottage that my great, great grandmother owned a hundred years ago when the Spiritualist community was first developing there. Two years ago when I moved I wasn’t sure why I was here but I was quick to realize I had been led to something I had been looking for all of my life; Mediumship. It is a spiritual practice of quieting the mind and connecting to the unseen world and the Ancestors who want to be given a voice and have a conversation. It is the art of bridging the mystery to the mundane and communicating messages and information that is useful, beneficial and essential to humanity's spiritual and emotional health. I am in the second half of the first year of a two year Mediumship program in Lily Dale, taught by some of the finest Mediums alive and passed.
It is with great respect that I offer my services for free while I continue my studies. Sadly, Mediumship is widely misunderstood. As of in all the healing arts, Mediumship can be practiced with or without strong ethics by those who are involved. I want to be clear about my own motives, boundaries and practices as a Medium and so I have created the following ethical guidelines.
My Reading Ethics
Privacy in all forms, from payment information to appointment records, is your right as a client.
Confidentiality means that I keep all I formation pertaining to your appointments, including the existence of appointments in the first place, strictly between you and I.
I am activity working on my own growth and healing with practitioners more experienced than myself.
Unconditional support is my goal for everyone I work with. While pure objectivity is not a human trait, I’m doing the work necessary to provide a judgement free healing space.
I’m here to support healing for my clients, which means finding our own answers. I can provide information but what you do with it can only come from within.
This means I do absolutely no work, intuitive, mediumistic or otherwise, without your explicit, verbal request.
I chose a single modality at a time and will only do the work you’ve engaged me for, whether we decide that should be mediumship or tarot.
I will honor our agreements to provide the service you’ve requested at the time and place we’ve chosen. This includes my own timeliness and I ask yours too.
I will give you complete estimates for any fees I charge up front and require your verbal approval before we proceed with services. I work at industry standard rates out of respect for my colleagues.
I keep up any and all registrations available to my practice, right now being simply my training at Fellowships of the Spirit.
I have records of all readings either written by the client themselves (in the case of student readings) or in my own notes. These are for tracking progress and adequate measures are taken to ensure confidentiality.
I have chosen to do this work to provide useful exploration of the unseen in this world. I make the conscious choice when to turn on or off my connection with the unseen based on my ethics of consent and privacy. I practice safe connection through my own methods of prayerful request, grounding, safe disposal and constant mindfulness.
In addition to typical verbal consent to engage with a client, I ask for verbal permission for energetic work and from those entities with whom I connect in other realms. I will not call forward beings who do not wish to join a session.
Before I begin any intuitive work, we will decide upon our goal. Once I have begun the work, my focus will remain on what we’ve agreed upon or I will end the session.
As a professional, you can expect that I do any practice or experimental work outside of our sessions. During a session, I will always be following a tried and true process.
Before I make a connection with any being, I follow a series of steps intended to ensure safe and meaningful interactions for myself, my clients and the all-that-is.
