Professional psychic advises students on decision making

By Jenni Glenn
WCkend. Etc. Editor
None of those New Year's doomsday
predictions came true, but many people
are still wondering what 2001 will hold.
For specific advice, they'd have to make
an appointment with local psychic and
University alumna Nanci Rose Gerler at

her practice Crystal Clear Expressions,
located in Nickels Arcade. The Michigan
Daily chatted with her about exactly
what her job entails.r
The Michigan Daily: How did you
become a psychic? Or were you always
Nanci Rose Gerler: I had flashes, a

sense of a greater reality. I found my first
psychic when a series of tragedies forced
me to seek higher answers, and started
taking meditation and psychic develop-
ment classes for personal and spiritual
growth. I was always top of the class and
I found I had a natural talent, but I never
intended to go public. Then I had to take
my dog in for emergency surgery and

was late for work. I saved her life bat lost
my job. An acquaintance was looking for
someone to work "Psychic Night" at a
'bar, and I had to pay the vet bill.
TMD: How do your abilities work?
NRG: I'm a psychic, channel, medi-
um and energy healer.
TMD: What's that exactly?
NRG: As a psychic, I am perceiving
specific information - past, present and
future - pertinent to the individual. I
answer people's specific questions
regarding relationships (family, friends,
romantic), educational, career and life
As a medium. I contact departed loved
ones on the "other side." ... I receive
visual images and impressions as to how
they look, their surroundings, their emo-
tional state, their energy level and what
they're doing. And I receive direct verbal
messages (they talk to me and through
me) for their loved ones still on earth.
As a channel. I'm a conduit for mes-
sages from non physical beings -
guides, guardian angels and the ascend-
ed masters. They are the unseen hands
that assist us in our lives on earth.
As an energy healer. I channel univer-
sal energy through my hands to remove
energetic blockages. This allows greater
clarity and healing to occur. I use crys-
tals as tools in my work to help me focus
and clear, hence the name Crystal Clear
TMD: What would a typical session
with you be like?
NRG: I do a protected reading so that
only information of benefit to be known
at this time comes through. My sessions
are designed to be informative and
empowering. I connect with the person's
energy using their full name, date of
birth and occupation. I begin by giving
people my impressions of their personal-
ity traits, character and life experience.
I'm an excellent photo reader and
encourage clients to bring pictures of
anvone they want to know about. I'm
here to help individuals navigate the
waters of their lives.
TMD: What do dead people look
like? What is heaven like?
NRG: First people are reunited with
friends and loved ones who have depart-
ed before. When people get there, most
of them go through a healing process to
restore themselves energetically. They
live in a group setting much like upscale
dorms and hospitals. If they had lessons
they did not learn on Earth, they are
forced to confront themselves and their
issues before they can move on. After the
healing process is complete, people look
radiant. In Heaven, they can choose the
optimal version of life they want,.select-
ing an environment in alignment with
their own likes and desires. I've seen one
mother on a cruise ship playing canasta,
kids in a summer camp surrounding and
people in beautiful mansions. Unlike
Earth, there are no problems or conflicts
Everyone lives in cooperation and ser-
vice to all.
TMD: Can anyone become a psychic?
NRG: Everyone comes equipped
with intuitive abilities. With practice,
they can be developed. Just as anyone
can play chopsticks, it takes time, appli-
cation and practice to plav a concerto.
The biggeststep is having faith and trust

in your own intuitions. Many people
receive prescient messages through
TMD: How can a person find a good
NRG: In looking for a good intuitive,
discernment should be used. You should
speak to the person prior to the initial
appointment and find someone who
answers your questions and feels good to
you. Look for 100 percent honest,
integrity, sincerity and love.
TMD: What was a memorable ses-
sion for you?
NRG: A client came in to my office to
know if she should take a new job over-
seas, and I begged her not to because she
was going to be disappointed and unhap-
py. I told her to keep the day job for now
because she was going to be married and
living in Hawaii by age 37 anyway. ...
Within two months, she had mov ed to
Hawaii, met the guy eight months later
and now they're engaged.
TMD: What kind of advice do you
have for students?
NRG: As a former college recruiter, I
add my psychic abilities to- my knowl-
edge base to guide students to suitable
educational and career paths, as well as
satisfying personal lives.
TMD: What is an example of one of
your predictions for a student that has
come true?
NRG: A recent (University) grad
was unsure about pursuing a masters
degree in Nursing Home Management
and Administration. I assured him he
would have a brilliant future if he did
so. He began his education, but wanted
practical experience in the field. I tolde
him there would be two options: One
would be easy and comfortable while
the other would be a fast learning
curve but very challenging. He was
impatient and got the hard one, and I
coached him to stay, insisting he would
be executive director in one vear,
increasing his income by S15,000. I
received a dozen roses from him when
it came true.
TMD: How do you feel about your
NRG: As an intuitive counselor, I
have the most rewarding profession on
the planet. I am able to assist people in
providing answers unavailable from any
other source and to give them empower-
ment, peace and enlightenment.
