It’s been said that people come into our lives for a reason. Debi Magnes, who passed away last week, was not only my friend, she was my spiritual mentor. Without her, there would be no Tony Morris, Psychic Medium.
Nearly eight years ago, I had a good-paying corporate job in Louisville, yet was struggling with the holiday season: no tree, few gifts and little joy. A co-worker sensed my drama, “You need to talk to Debi; she’ll make you’ll feel better.” Before I could ask if Debi was a therapist, my friend threw the bait, “She’s a life coach.” Then, came the hook, “She’s also a psychic.”
I was intrigued, as I’d consulted with a psychic years prior. I called Debi and scheduled an appointment for the second weekend in December 2007. I liked her from the start; she projected a smile that could light up a Vegas marquee, coupled with a genuine desire to help people improve their lives. Validations to her psychic insights came quickly after my initial session, so I booked another meeting shortly after the new year.
Just before we closed that early January 2008 consultation, I said, “Can I ask a question? I read a book by James Van Praagh about seven years ago in which he discussed how to connect with your spiritual guide. One night in bed, I felt like it happened, but I was too nervous to explore it any further. Do you think I should try again?”
Debi leaned across the table and rubbed her beautifully manicured hands together, “Yes, I think you’re much more open to it now. Who knows, you could be the next John Edward,” she added, referring to the noted medium. At the time, I recalled walking out of her office, scratching my head about the Edward comment.
Three months later, I had a major spiritual awakening in which I discovered my own psychic medium gifts. Thank God for Debi, as she helped me navigate through through those early months of unchartered waters. Once, I shared with her how my physical body experienced an unusual metamorphosis, “It’s like I’m hooked up to a power station and I’m receiving jolts of electricity!”
She replied, “Tony, that’s because your chakras are opening up!”
My naivety was exposed: “Chakras? Are they like kidneys or something?”
Debi coached me not only on our body’s spiritual energy centers, but also on the Law of Attraction, meditation and healing therapy. All the while, she was kind, funny and down-to-Earth, qualities which easily made her one of my most treasured friends.
Today, when one of my clients tells another person, “You need to talk to Tony,” I feel very humbled and honored.
And, very grateful for Debi Magnes.
Love and light,
