Go inside the mind and heart of a professional psychic to the stars and everyday people. This book is a captivating look into the life of a talented psychic and ghostbuster.
Packed with heart and insights (excuse the gift of sight pun), in A Psychic’s Life: What It’s Really Like, Michael Bodine takes you on a wild ride of his journey from skeptic to believer to practicing psychic. The book is a memoir of sorts with a point from a gifted psychic to the stars and everyday people who is also funny. His second book after Growing Up Psychic: From Skeptic to Believer (Llewellyn Worldwide Ltd., 2010), the author shares more stories about growing up in a psychic family, his own sometimes painful journey to find and accept his career as a psychic and his relationships with clients.
While the book includes information on how to tap into your own intuition and psychic skills, the book is not a how-to on developing your psychic abilities. But you may finish the book inspired enough to follow your own intuition more often or try your hand at developing your own psychic abilities. Bodine’s stories of how people followed their own intuition are compelling, and most entertaining are his accounts of his larger-than-life client stories, many of whom are his friends.
In A Psychic’s Life (Llewellyn Worldwide Ltd., 2018), you will learn more about the different types of psychics. It’s only from the wisdom of a practicing psychic with decades of experience in the field that you’ll get insider’s tips on how to spot a newbie psychic, for instance, or one you might be interested in working with, as well as old-school psychic thinking versus the mindset of today’s more holistic psychic practitioners.
In the book, Bodine shares stories of his client relationships and readings, along with accounts of ghostbusting. You’ll have to read the book to get the Hollywood dish and the author’s take on what makes celebrities different from most people. Some of the most moving stories are how a person’s own intuition saved them.
Meet “future guy” Michael Bodine
Michael Bodine is a Minneapolis-based professional psychic and ghostbuster. As a psychic and self-described “future guy,” he reads people’s energy and their futures through his senses. He’s clear that he’s not a medium who gives messages to people from their deceased loved ones. Nevertheless, as a seasoned ghostbuster, Bodine is incredibly in touch with “earthbound spirits”—a/k/a ghosts or spirits of dead people—who shouldn’t be dwelling here and ultimately pester us. It’s the living who have the power to get rid of the ghosts, he says. In the book, Bodine shares stories of his client relationships and readings, along with accounts of ghostbusting. Some of the most moving stories are how a person’s own intuition saved them.
Bodine joked in an Intuitive Living podcast co-hosted by his sister, author and psychic Echo Bodine, and Bobby Sullivan, that his short book is a “pamphlet.” But the 220-page book packs a lot of punch in about eight chapters. Chapters are loosely based on themes, such as spirit guides, ghostbusting and the author’s experiences with celebrity clientele and his own experiences with Hollywood. The last chapter wraps up with conclusions for each chapter and as Bodine notes in the book: “These are stories; you make your own conclusions.”
Readers of A Psychic’s Life: What It’s Really Like may come away with a stronger faith and trust in their own lives. Especially if you are interested in developing your own psychic abilities or want to explore starting a psychic practice, or are even curious about psychics, this book is for you.
