My Friends! It is with great pride and joy that I give you my conversation with Dr. Lana!
Dr. Lana is herself a psychic-medium AND she holds a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology. She is currently serving as a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Clinical Psychology.
Suffice to say, Dr. Lana is straight up overqualified to speak on cultural appropriation, and I’m SO grateful she was happy to have this conversation with me, and help me to tackle some of the *crazy* feedback I received on my original post and video.
You may recall, last May I wrote this blog post, and later posted this video, entitled “Why I No Longer Smudge.”
I knew I’d get some push-back from it, and I was STILL surprised at how much I received, and what these folks had the nerve to say! Well, Dr. Lana is helping me to tackle the spackle in our two-part conversation, posted on the Joyful Telepathy Podcast!
Part 1 has been posted, and Part 2 will come out NEXT TUESDAY!
I shall attempt to embed the player here:

Plug in, sit back, and chuckle along with us as Dr. Lana and I bring lightness and brevity to the HEAVY spiritual topics that FEW MEDIUMS DARE TO ADDRESS such as Spiritual Bypassing, Cultural Appropriation, and our response to the comments such as, “I was a ______ in my past life, so I am allowed to use it!”
Have you listened yet? If you have, here is some bonus material! Because Dr. Lana is a fabulous academic, she has provided us with some further reading material, which I have uploaded here:
Principles of Inner Work – Psychological and Spiritual
From Cultural Exchange to Transculturation
Tune in Tuesday Dec 11th for PART TWO of our conversation!
And PLEASE feel free to leave your honest and respectful comments and questions here! It’s okay to not know things – we are all a work in progress and we come from all different life experiences, all that I ask is that you extend your empathy and respect towards others, and observe your own reactions thoughtfully.
