Welcome, Isabeau. Thanks so much for joining me today. I'm really excited to talk to you. I am excited to chat with you, too. We've got the very similar vibe, and we're out there doing some of the same stuff. And I was looking forward to getting on the line with you. Oh, good. I know, I swear psychics and psychic mediums and people that are really, like, in touch with that part of themselves. It's, like, so fascinating to me because I know that I'm very intuitive, and I have had some psychic flashes here and there, but I don't do that work on a regular basis. So share a little bit about you and how... Was this something that you were born with or did it come to you later? And I love the title of your book, Adventures of a Reluctant Medium Cracking Open. All right. I'll let you share your story. Go ahead.
No, the title could not be more perfect because I was seriously reluctant. It was quite... So the book itself, it turned out to be a really popular book. When we're off of this line, I'm getting your book, too, because I am in love with what you're doing. Oh, thank you. Thank you so much. So I'm totally going to jump into my story, but if I could ask a question also about your book as well. Are you... Also, you must be getting feedback from people who wish to manifest, and then they read your book, and then manifesting becomes easier as a simple result of reading your book. Yes. Yes, that does happen. That does happen. People are like, oh, because I get really in detail. I go through using our creativity for manifesting, but when you read the book, it's very detailed and there's a lot of writing exercises. So it helps people get really clear on what it is they want because a lot of people don't really know what they want. They kind of know what they don't want and they may want to feel more joy or they may want to be happy, but they're not really sure what that looks like. What does happiness mean to you? To all of us, it's different. So it gets really in depth.
And then I have tons of really fun exercises in the book, especially around manifesting health and money, fun games we can play. So it kind of gets us to retrain our brain because we are always thinking about our problems and what we don't want, and we don't want to do that anymore. So, yeah, I love that. And that's a lot of the teaching that happened for my students is through sometimes witnessing other possibilities and just seeing somebody else's experience. Oh, they can do it. You know, I can do it too. So that's my if I was the poster girl for if I can do it, you can do it too. That would work. That would fit who I am, really, because I was 32 years old. I wasn't born with it.
I was 32 and my grandmother passed away. And the shortest version is that she showed up in my living room. And it was it was a night and day. Wow. A little bit of fear. All of that has been because up to that point, I was skeptic. I a was math major in the degree from college in mathematics. I mean, I am not the person who would have ever thought would have followed this path. And so here I am two in the afternoon. You know, I just hung up with the hospice house. I wasn't able to be near her. I was a couple of states away. And yeah, it was really hard because I was really close to her. And I was standing there in my living room trying to figure out what the heck to do. And she showed up right in front of me, like 10 feet in front of me, looked right at me. She was about 70 percent...
