Viola, Clairaudient, Clairvoyant, Clairsentient..........
Viola was born (as a double Pisces) and raised in New York and had many
instances of paranormal occurrences growing up, but nothing to indicate the
spiritual life path that was to be, that is, until a life-changing event.
On New Year's Eve 1989, while living in St. Louis, Viola was hit by a drunk
driver when jogging and thrown 122 feet. Major injuries were incurred,
including a vertebra break, severe leg damage, and head trauma. She
overheard doctors talking outside the emergency room about how she shouldn't
be alive. The prognosis was that she would be in the hospital for weeks, in
a back brace for six months, and considerable physical therapy would be
required. What actually happened was that she was out of the hospital in
three days, wore the back brace for two weeks, did a couple of rehab
sessions, then ran a marathon that September!
Three weeks after being hit, a friend raved about a psychic she had just
visited and suggested Viola get a reading from her. It had been many years
since Viola had gotten a reading, and because she felt changes in her
self taking place, she made an appointment. The psychic had no knowledge of
the accident but told Viola that there had been a miraculous healing of body
and shift in spirit. She encouraged Viola to develop her abilities and
follow the new life path that was opening up. Viola wholeheartedly did by
studying with that psychic, taking classes from others, and
reading voraciously about metaphysics and spirituality.
By 1995, Viola moved to New Mexico and opened a metaphysical shop called
Visions By Viola, which she owned and operated for almost nine years. She
currently lives in the mountains of New Mexico with her 4-legged
"How Not To Do A Psychic Reading" is a channeled work (and that's not a word
Viola uses lightly). She takes credit completely for being the vehicle for
it, as well as doing all the manual labor involved. Running is her
meditation, when lots of messages, answers, insights, and inspirations
come. For months during her morning runs, bits and pieces, along with much
urging from her Guides to write this book, kept coming to her. During a
conversation with a friend one night Viola confided that she was thinking
about writing a book about what shouldn't be done with respect to doing
readings, basically because the bombardment wasn't going away and, frankly,
no such information or guidelines were out there. So, having said it out
loud to her friend and Spirit, she "just happened" to get snowed in the very
next day which provided her the time to sit with pen and pad. For seven
hours the outline and the essence of the book flowed.
It is a great little gem of wisdom which provides guidance for conduct,
caring, and professionalism for anyone and everyone spiritually interacting
with another person. It is extremely pertinent to readers because there are
a myriad of books & workshops on how to do a reading, what to read
with, etc., but nothing about what faux pas should and could be avoided. It
is especially beneficial for metaphysical shop owners who have in-house or
guest psychics. How that person conducts themselves is a direct reflection
on that store and its reputation. It is also a great tool for anyone
getting a reading because it can ensure that their reader is coming from a
place of integrity and has their best interests at heart. The information
in the book is imparted in a very conversational & humorous manner.
How Not To Do A Psychic Reading has been named a finalist for the 2007 New
Mexico Book Awards Best New Age book.

Viola has been doing intuitive readings since 1992. She is clairaudient
(hears), clairsentient (feels), and clairvoyant (sees). She incorporates
numerology and astrology in sessions, and uses Rune cards as her focus.
Viola connects in with her client's energy and guides and imparts
information that the person needs to know. What they want to know does not
always come up immediately, but what they need to hear and heed is
Readings are $65 per half hour. They are done by
appointment in Viola's office in Albuquerque or by telephone,
I am a
massage therapist and teacher in Houston, Texas. I received my first
reading from Viola in 2004 when I was taking care of my father who had
Alzheimer's disease. During my reading, Viola told me when my
responsibility with my father would end. Years later, I ran across my notes
from the reading and she was exactly right.
is currently taking a new direction in teaching and I consult with Viola to
make sure I am headed in the right direction. I even refer to her book in
my classes. I love her book because it is very simple and basic information
that everyone needs to know and apply. It is not just for the Psychic but
for anyone who works in the service industry; i.e, massage therapists, Reiki
Masters, doctors, dentists, acupuncturists, aromatherapists, etc. can and
should apply the steps outlined in her book.
a great comfort and counselor in both my personal and business life. I
highly recommend her.
approached by a customer who's considering a psychic reading with Viola for
the first time and they ask, "Is she any good?" I reply, "She wouldn't be
here if she wasn't good!". Then I'll share a few of my own experiences with
her... recalling the beginnings of our sessions, as she would sit calmly
with her eyes closed for a minute or so, and then ask me the most obtuse
yet amazingly accurate of questions from: "Does your water heater need to be
replaced?" or "Is there an unfinished painting project in your bathroom?" to
" Are you and your mother not getting along right now?" to which the answer
is always "Yes!".
Viola has an uncanny
ability to identify and highlight the areas of our lives and our
surroundings that need our attention. In quiet observation, with the help of
her intuitive guides, she tunes in to the sights and sounds of our aural
realm. The Rune cards and angel cards she uses function more as guideposts
and confirmation for her clairaudient, clairvoyant, and clairsentient
interpretations. She surveys body, temperament and soul, and sometimes
suggests a course of action or recommends a therapy that subconsciously we
have either neglected or forgotten for ourselves. Her messages at times can
be stern yet sensitive, somber or sunny. A reading from Viola may not say
what you want to hear at the time, but it's the information you'll need to
help you make informed decisions and to move forward in your life. Keep an
open mind...something may fall in!

I am a business owner from San Antonio, Texas. I had the good fortune to
meet an amazing woman named Viola about 5 years ago. This awesome lady has
truly been blessed with the gift of psychic ability. Viola has proven
herself time and time again with consistent & accurate predictions regarding
my corporate as well as my personal life. I would challenge any person to
just once try this unique experience. The results will speak for themselves.
Because of the results I have attained with my readings, I now consider
Viola an integral part of my decision making process. As a business person
Viola’s insightful predictions have been invaluable to me. When running a
business, having the inside track on hiring employees, dealing with clients,
& even equipment repairs has many advantages. Viola is now considered not
only my advisor, consultant, confident, but also my friend. My personal
opinion is that she has been sent to Earth from Heaven above to show us all
that there is something else beyond this earthly realm.

The gifted psychic reader,
Viola, is in my opinion, one of the finest readers in New Mexico. Her
abilities to delve into the very souls of her clients and foresee all that
await them is unsurpassed. I have produced multiple large metaphysical fairs
and am a part owner of a metaphysical shop that has utilized Viola's
phenomenal gift to serve the metaphysical community in the central Rio
Grande valley. Always, she has risen above the rest in her trade, to truly
assert herself as one of the best in reading skill and professionalism.
