"Psychic abilities are inherent in the essential character of everyone," shares astrologer Nancy Byrne, "yet we seldom pay attention to our inner voice, our hunches, our intuition, or our gut feelings provided by the Divine Spirit." The proprietor of CHOICES wants to change that scenario. That's why she holds classes that tap into each student's innate spiritual abilities. In Spirit Mediumship, she teaches participants how to communicate with the spirit realm, while in Chakra Balancing and Archetypes, she helps students read energy systems that affect one's spirituality and mental acuity. She also leads students through sessions in astrology and meditation.
