If you would like to schedule a personal intuitive reading with me, please email
I or my assistant will respond to you, and you will be added to a waiting list. When we are ready to schedule you, we will contact you again.
Currently I am mainly giving readings over the phone.
I ask forgiveness that I cannot get to each one of you as quickly as I would like. So many requests have poured in since the interview with the brilliant Suzanne Giesemann, that it will take many weeks to reach you all. But I promise to work hard. This is my calling, both writing books (novels and non-fiction) that guide on the spiritual path, and also one-on-one, to open our hearts fearlessly to the spiritual dimension and to what we are here to do.
What happens during a psychic or intuitive reading is sacred, holy, and therefore I ask that you take it in that vein, without skepticism or sarcasm. Indeed a suspicious attitude interrupts the flow of information from Spirit, so that you may as well not even try a reading: it won’t work well.
A reading concerns the interplay between the medium and psychic, you, and the spirit guides and angels on the Other Side, who are searching for ways to connect and tell of their love. A reading begins with my praying for clarity, that I see with the eyes of the Divine, that the reading offer what you need to know. It ends with my prayer of thanks. I hope that you, receiving the reading, will likewise open your heart to hear what is meant for you to know, in whatever way the information comes, and then that you, too, hold it in sacred space.
To that end, I would like you to be alone for your reading. This is so that I see your energy, pure and uninterrupted by the energy of anyone nearby. Please, therefore, don’t have others in the room with you. A reading takes 45 minutes to an hour. During this time, I am in a slightly altered state, listening. After the mumbling of prayers, I will talk for a few minutes, then open the conversation up to whatever is of concern that has not yet been addressed, or that seems completely “wrong,” so that we may examine it further. Afterwards, I may not remember anything that was said, for the reading is simply for you.
Sometimes an angel appears — but not always. Sometimes a spirit appears — but not always. (They are not our slaves to arrive in visible form.) But if neither “appears,” what is being said is still relevant, important. It is still the Universe, your guides and loved ones, inviting you to understand your journey.
Before your reading
Questions: Make a list of your questions. This is not for me, but so that afterwards you don’t suddenly remember something you forgot to ask. Often your questions are answered in the initial talk.
Names: Send me all the names, nicknames, spiritual names, married names, maiden names, etc. you have ever been called.
Date of birth: Send me your date of birth. This is so that I “hook up” to the right person.
I think it’s important to record a reading, either with pen and paper or by machine. Don’t think you’ll remember everything. If you are taking notes, try to capture the exact wording as closely as possible, since sometimes our guides speak with precise and unusual use of words, and their meaning may not be immediately clear — until later, upon reflection. I have heard many examples of this. If you record audio, I request that it is for your personal use only. You may share it with a relative or spouse, but it is not to be tossed out on social media or to the public. This is a personal communication, and holy. It is to be held to your heart, like Mary when the angel Gabriel came to her.
As a child, I was taught that psychic readings were nothing but con games, beneath the notice of anyone intelligent. Then, by a confluence of coincidences that I think could only have been orchestrated by God, I started to give readings. I am still astonished at how much information comes to me. Sometimes an angel appears, sometimes a spirit of a loved one, but they are not our slaves and I make no guarantees. When a spirit of someone who has died comes, I am called a “medium” between dimensions or worlds. When I receive information alone, I am a “psychic” or “intuitive”.
Still, there are many bad psychics and outright frauds waiting to relieve you of your life’s savings. Be cautious. If someone starts to tell you that for more money (a lot more!), they can cleanse your aura, or remove a demon… run!
“I recently had a remarkable phone reading by Sophy Burnham. If her name sounds familiar, it may be because she is a best-selling author who had written several books on angels — and many on other topics too. I, however, discovered Sophy after reading a Modern Love essay in The NY Times entitled At What Age is Love Enthralling? 82.
My reading with Sophy was insightful and inspired action and I have experienced several synchronicities, breakthroughs, and awakenings since. Sophy is deeply spiritual, extremely wise, and a lot of fun — as are each of you. I suspect you would enjoy each other.
To help you calibrate, here is a link to one of the entries on her blog.
Blessings, laughter, and love,
Lois, St. Petersburg, Florida”
“I originally started working with Sophy several years ago, after I fell in love with her book, The Art of Intuition. The art of synchronicity was definitely working through that encounter!
I never had such a deep and profound experience as my reading with Sophy. I felt like finally there was someone who really sees me for who I truly am. She has been an earth angel, helping me through some dark times and giving me hope and trust in my gifts and higher purpose and connection with my angels and spirit guides. I am a client forever!”

“After my reading with Sophy Burnham, I felt reassured about the presence of Divine support in my life and I also realized that my view of the future had been calibrated from positive to very positive. She gave me a mixture of down-to-earth advice and spiritual guidance while at the same time, she saw me from an eternal perspective, one that no one had ever seen me from before. It was deeply satisfying and I would recommend it highly for people seeking additional information about their lives.”

“My reading by phone with Sophy Burnham was everything I’d hoped for — and more. It brought so much comfort to hear things that resonated with what I have been experiencing, and her gentle manner made me comfortable right from the start (I was initially nervous to make the call). I don’t use this word often, but afterwards I felt 'joyful'!
She told me I had made a breakthrough — and that’s just what I had been experiencing in the weeks before the call. Her insights and suggestions about my husband, my girls… was inspiring. I just hope that I am able to use any gifts I may have to help others, which I have always enjoyed doing — perhaps on a higher plane.”

“Recently I had a reading with Sophy Burnham and it is already proving to be a life-changing experience. Sophy's clarity, her wisdom and insight, and her willingness to serve as a conduit for information, direction, and reassurance from the divine realm are extraordinary, and her ability to create an atmosphere of peace and safety made our reading something I will carry with me and continue to implement for the rest of my life. Sophy has been blessed with a remarkable gift.”
— Susan Schachterly, Italy
“Sophy agreed to try to communicate with my beloved kitty, Bisou, who died in early February after 15 very special, wonderful years with me. I have been overcome with grief and deep sorrow, since he was a true companion. She said she wasn't sure she could do it.
Bisou did appear — to both of us, and we both saw him sitting on the rug, watching me carefully, as he always did in life, with his wise and knowing look. He told Sophy some very deep and touching things, which have helped me to reconcile with his departure. Being able to see him, and to feel him in the same room again, and to keep his words with me on paper as I wrote down what Sophy was receiving, helps me to remember that Bisou is only a thought away, that he will always come whenever I call him. Thank you, Sophy, for these precious moments.”
