The intuitive ability that Margi was born with has had unbelievable life altering affect on her clients.  Many people comment on how one session has changed their lives.  She brings forth valuable information about each soul.  Some from past life experiences, others in current life messages.  People say when they hear these messages it's like they are talking to a mirror.  She is often asked by clients how she knew the information as it completely related to what they were going through or thinking.  

She does not read minds but the answers in many cases almost seem so. Margi says she hears her guides and angels tell her what her clients so desperately need to know and understand about their current life journey. 

"It's the most amazing experience of self awareness for the soul," she says.  Each client walks away with an amazing sense of peace and empowerment!  Margi says she is grateful everyday to be able to help those in need of finding their purpose, resolving their issues, guiding their paths, healing old hurts and wounds and bringing forth messages of peace and comfort in ways a person can finally find direction and a sense of being.  Margi is in awe with how much about life and us we really don't know-- however she truly appreciates the angels and guides help along our journey! website:

REV. ED KARPA is a Spiritualist minister.  He has given many lectures and messages for many years helping others.

Rev. Ed Karpa "I come from a very church-going family.  I have studied, and have been a part of many different churches.  In doing so, I have learned what spirituality is and what individual spiritual growth is. Church is a place of sharing and learning.  

I have been speaking at a few spiritual churches for years in the Portland area.  I have hosted classes and study groups on spirituality.  I am a part of counseling groups, and I work with people in rehabilitation.  I like to grow through helping others (some times as a teacher and other times as the student).

I believe in coming to nature.  I find that it is the best place to meditate, and to find an understanding of our place in the universe. Nature can show us a lot, such as, learning about cycles, growth, how to evolve through damage, knowing how to prune, and get the right nutrients."
