Hello Everyone! I’m Sherri Carter, Supervising Editor for All Things Healing. Thank you so much for joining us! With me today is Steffany Barton, RN. Steffany is a premier psychic medium, spiritual teacher and author who is highly sought after for her angel readings. Part of her mission is to demystify the spiritual and psychic arts. Steffany holds a degree as a Registered Nurse, is a certified in past life regression and hypnotherapy and is a Karuna Reiki Master. She is the author of two books: Wonder Wings and Angels Insight. Steffany is from Leawood, KS and joins us today.
Sherri: What was it like to make a transition from nursing to professional mediumship? How did your friends and family react?
Steffany: Well being from the heart of America and specifically from the Ozarks, this highly conservative area and having been raised in the fundamental Baptist church, the transition was not met with open arms, celebrations, or confetti and cakes; but instead met with a great deal of concern, a lot of consternation, and quite frankly a lot of fear. It was a difficult experience and yet I’m very grateful that I was able to stand in my truth and to do what I was called to do even in spite of the opinions of others. And it's a transformation and a transition that I’m eternally grateful for having made. I think the very fact that it was difficult has then really given me a source of authenticity and an ability to be genuine in my encouragement of others because I’ve done that even in the face of hellfire and damnation, I’ve done it. It's a powerful thing to stand in your truth and to walk in your integrity with that.
Sherri: On ATH, we have a video of you talking about the difference between Angels and Spirit Guides, can you briefly tell us the difference.
Steffany: Let me first say that in the end, when it’s all said and done, the names and the labels are truly unimportant in the eyes of love, God, and spirit. So our definitions and parameters are really for our own sense of communication and our own ease of expressing ourselves. They don't need the labels. But I know that especially when I was knew on the spiritual path and trying to get the logistics, being the student that I was and the academic person and wanted to know facts, figures, and details, I found it very important to have an understanding and a clear concept of what’s an angel, a guide, a human spirit.
