Listen to the First Chapter
The author hit it out of the park on this one. Home run! It is a must read for everyone.
I am taken with the author’s chapter 2 opening of “I Married a Psychic” :
“Some of you are believers, some of you aren’t sure, and the rest of you think this is whacky.”
Whichever your case may be, you will discover a wonderful, insightful, fun, enlightening read.
There is something here for everyone. A nugget, just for you.
Makichen is open in sharing bits of her married life with husband Walter.
A psychic medium, Walter worked with thousands of people throughout his life, ran a meditation center, and bottom line, was “just a guy from Philly; a die-hard Phillies fan.”
Makichen’s approach is practical. Each chapter is readable, clear and positive, ending in summary with:
“~the lesson. ~the practice. ~what helps.”
Check out page 38. She writes, “People are creatures of habit. Even when something no longer works for us, we keep trying to make it work…. “it’s as if we’re repeatedly trying to cram a square peg into a triangular hole that used to be a square. We shake our heads and wonder why it’s not working, instead of trying something new”.
You can read it cover to cover, or you can open to any chapter, and you will hit home.
Your own home base, of resilience, personal power, and inner calm.

This positive, fun book is cozy and sweet. I’m recommending it to friends. There is actual actionable good advice in it…it’s not just soothing…you can use these pieces of wisdom. Enjoy.
This book perfectly encapsulates important life lessons in bite size chapters that can easily be digested. It is spiritual and practical with interesting stories but gets right to the point. Highly recommend for both avid readers and audio book listeners. Amazing job!
I’m so glad you found your way to this page. Writing I Married a Psychic was a true labor of love. It was so important to me to share everything I learned from my husband Walter. He was an amazing teacher and clairvoyant.
I really wanted this to be the kind of book that you could pick up when you needed guidance and flip to the page or chapter that would speak to you in the moment. I hope you’ll pick up a copy of the paperback, eBook or audiobook and that it will brighten your day.
