(If You Could See What I See is a working title.  The title will change.)

Opening up to psychic information is a leap of faith into a unique pool of healing, power and wonder.  There isn’t much to cushion the rush of new possibilities.  Jumping from the mainstream world into a world of self and psychic awareness can be a slippery slope, even under the best possible circumstances.

If You Could See What I See leads the reader through a wealth of information derived from the author’s perspective as an overly sensitive little girl who eventually grew into her psychic abilities and had a 30-year career as a clairvoyant healer and teacher in Portland, Oregon.

With due respect for the possibility that pursuing a psychic education may expose a person to unregulated metaphysical communities and the accompanying dysfunctional, damaging dogma, the author carefully guides the reader through logical and progressive New Age theory from the point of view of a gifted psychic who was at one time ousted and ostracized from her own psychic peer group.

Acutely aware there is a fine line between a metaphysical community and a cult, the author stresses accountability, logic and common sense within every chapter.   If You Could See What I See is uniquely impervious to the ubiquitous flawed cyclical ideas like, “everything happens for a reason” that metaphysical circles use, with great pride, to blame the victim.

"Part One" Theory," approaches such topics such as, energy healing, psychic protection, reincarnation, creativity and karma with a code of ethics and responsibility. For example, energy healing is explained within the context of personal responsibility. Psychic protection is explained in the context of personal energy boundaries with no excuses for psychic warfare. Reincarnation is explained without fantastical ideas of who you might have famously been in a past life. The chapter on creativity is bursting with information that does not confuse or conflate creativity with capitalism.

"Part Two: The Dark Side: Organic and Inorganic Manipulation," makes it absolutely clear this is not just another metaphysical book.  When a person really does have clairvoyant abilities and is dedicated to integrating them into real life, her vision doesn’t just see the possibilities for good.  She also sees bad and evil.  Not everyone has a dark side (that everyone has a dark side is a myth perpetuated by those who do) but when they do, it is common for such people to live shamelessly in malevolence and cruelty because they think no one is watching.  Negative psychic energy put forth on an everyday bases by those who are willing to go to extremes to control and compete, is easily visible on a clairvoyant level when  rose-colored filters don’t obscure the truth.

"Part Two: The Dark Side:  Organic Manipulation," outs everyday people who penetrate psychic boundaries just by their willingness to do so.  Additionally, it vehemently rebels against the notion that harming another person without physically touching them is acceptable.

"Part Two: The Dark Side:  Inorganic Manipulation," explains that within the metaphysical community lies a dark underbelly that turns, not just to psychic toxicity by their own personality and willfulness alone, but to unnatural (inorganic) energy deviation, conjuration i.e. magic. It is so common for people to seek out metaphysical communities in order to learn conjuration that they seek it out, even if it isn’t advertised as a valid part of a clairvoyant education.  People who use inorganic manipulation think they are geniuses that rise above the “petty" process of self-healing and spiritual enlightenment.

Part Two of "The Dark Side: Inorganic Manipulation," sets forth the basic motivation and intent behind conjuration, i.e., magic and explains how to identify and protect yourself and your every day life from those who think they are the first person ever to stalk on a psychic level and envision someone else’s demise.

"Part Three: Out of Naivety and Into Motion," explains the psychic complexity of interpersonal relationships without succumbing to erroneous metaphysical rhetoric that commonly excuses and even admires the lack of boundaries.  Relationships are possible with not just physical respect, but psychic respect as well.  The author explains how energy encroachment on a psychic level is limiting and abusive.  She goes on further to explain that relationships that do not psychically encroach allow people to thrive without outgrowing their relationships.

Channeling is not a myth, but that it is healthy and makes a person special, is.  It is commonplace for a professional clairvoyant to believe channeling is the way to create a psychic career, but Ms. Lassell stands out for her belief that not succumbing to channeling is a better modality.  She believes channeling must be addressed as a dysfunctional model in order to progress metaphysical theory in general, and stop people from cycling through the same old metaphysical material that they mistakenly think is new because it is new to them.

Channeling is as old as the hills and except for the validation that something other than the physical exists, nobody gets anything out of it but the narcissistic out-of-body being who is looking for an audience. 

After place energy healing and clairvoyance in an ethical and responsible model and acknowledging and exposing the problems that the metaphysical community has with it dark side, "Part 3: Out of Naivety and into Motion," contain 10 chapters of how-to information on topics such as, clairvoyance, self-awareness and self-healing, putting together a practice, personal power and healing and taking up your own space.

The instructional text of these 10 how-to chapters comes from a personal and professional lifelong process of awakening and healing. They are unique and uplifting and guide the reader in a hopeful, powerful and practical use of their own ability to heal and to see.
