Description : True Stories of a Psychic Empath Medium contains some of Triza Schultz’s most fascinating stories of her spiritual and paranormal life experiences, spanning chronologically from childhood through to adult life. Triza’s first clearly remembered spiritual vision occurred at the age of five. Paranormal encounters continued into her teen years and beyond, significantly shaping her views about universal spirituality and why we incarnate into the physical form. Through life stories and excerpts from twenty-two years of journaling, the reader is taken on a magical journey to parallel dimensions with spirit guides, angels, deceased loved ones, past life episodes, as well as confrontations with the mischievous and a brush with the spiritual dark side. Triza encountered a major life change when she retired from a twenty-six year corporate human resources job in her mid-forties and moved to New Mexico. There she engaged in a deeply challenging journey through devastating physical disease that tested her belief in life’s purpose. She came through it all with knowledge of a great universal truth: we are deeply connected to each another, and love is the final word.
