Attention Lightworkers

ATTENTION LIGHTWORKERS

This post is for all the people out there that consider themselves LIGHTWORKERS. My family has been in the psychic healing business for close to fifty years here in the Twin Cities. I’ve been very fortunate to have many gifted students and loving clients and a lot of you have come to know me personally.

For many years, there has been another psychic in town who has badmouthed us Bodines more times than I care to remember.  She has told many lies about us, such as we’re evil, demonic, alcoholics and drug addicts. I’ve had students come to my home telling me that she told them not to take classes from me or read my books because I’m evil and so is everything I do.

When we’ve confronted her on this she always denies it. We’ve asked her nicely to stop and sometimes when we’ve had enough, we’ve threatened to sue her for slander and defamation of character. She has also denied the following even though it came from her email address:

A week ago my friend psychic medium Thomas John was coming to the Twin Cities to do some work at my Center and she sent him this text. I’m deleting her name for several reasons.

Hi John,

You don’t know me but I am one of the promiment psychics in Minnesota. My name is XXXXXX. I’ve been doing readings for almost 40 years. Be very careful with working with the Bodines.  Michael and Echo especially. They are very dangerous people. They do NOT have a good reputation here, and they are alcoholics and drug users. I know you’ve already been tainted by working with them, but you need to be careful. Danger! I am sure you are intuitive and I am surprised you have not picked up on this! Don’t do anything with them. Especially TV projects. Also, please keep this e-mail between you and me. I don’t want anything coming back to harm me. They are dangerorus……..

thanks,XXXXXX

Am I sending this out to you so that you feel sorry for us or to let you know about this woman? NO. I’m sending this out to you because we need to pull together as a community and not look at each other as a threat to our businesses. We already deal with religious controversy and mainstream negative attitudes towards us. We don’t need this kind of backstabbing crap to go on. Can’t we be supportive of each other? People are always so surprised to hear that I often refer people to other psychics, healers or teachers and I don’t understand why. There’s plenty of clients wanting help and plenty of the deceased for mediums to talk to, so why do some feel threatened when there are others of like mind in our community doing the same thing they are.

Advertising is fine, but when it all boils down to who’s going to be successful and who isn’t, it’s the people that have integrity and do a good job. It’s the authentic ones. Yes there are many who call themselves Lightworkers that I believe are questionable in their intentions and if you’ve got a legitimate complaint against someone in our community, that’s one thing, but to be mean and spiteful because you can is not a good thing on so many levels.

This is a very significant time right now. You can see this enormous shift taking place and more and more people are searching spiritually. We are here to assist them on their journey so let’s focus on that and be supportive of each other’s work unless it does not come from a place of integrity.

I would like to add a footnote to her comments about us being alcoholics and drug addicts. Yes, we were. Many many years ago and I’m proud and grateful to say we each have forty plus years of sobriety.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I wish you the best in your work and on your journey,

Sincerely,

Echo

PS.I posted this on FB last night and have received over 300 wonderful, supportive, loving posts from people all over. I am very appreciative of all them, don’t get me wrong, but I want to reiterate that this post is not about that psychic as much as it is about coming together as a community of people helping people on their journey. Not being jealous or backstabbing but being supportive of each other and the work we do.

    Just want to take this opportunity to say something I don’t often enough. THANKS Echo for being my teacher, my mentor and my friend. You’ve always helped me to understand when I’ve had questions, encouraged me to grow both psychically and spiritually. How sad that this person whoever she is feels compelled to break down and destroy rather than build. I can’t think of any gifted group of folks if rather share and grow alongside with than you, Michael and the other amazing “psychic” family that we have all become together. Judy Utecht

    Thank you for sharing, Echo.

    Not only have I taken classes from you, but I visited your mother regularly.

    I have a very high regard and much respect for you and your family and will always check in with you when I need help finding someone who can help me in a specific way when you are unable.

    Bless you and your family for all you have done to POSITIVELY impact this community and beyond!

    Keep it up!!

    My blessings to you, while you go through this trying time. I must say though, this “psychic” is being so judgmental and that speaks volumes as to where her heart is for the people that she should be helping. My gifts are no where in the realm of yours, and I am going through a similar situation. I know my faith and my beliefs as a Christian, so I am thus saddened by her judgments, and I pray for her. Stay strong, and love will always prevail.Truly, Tam Florian

    Hi, Echo,

    I’m so sorry this woman is so small-minded and mean spirited. I hope it helps you to know how many of your students love you. I often attend your Friday night meditations and they bring me such peace. You and Lily do great work!

    It might also interest you to know that just before your email arrived, I was reading your book, A Still Small Voice while sitting on the dock on vacation. It was one of several books I brought along and the first I chose to read. Not only that but I’d just put you on my gratitude list: “I live in a time and a place where teachers feel safe to share their wisdom and draw me into the tribe–Echo!, Liv, Nancy Jernander, Joyce Browning. In another time we could have been burned at the stake. Instead I can attend their classes and continue to learn!”

    Hi Echo,

    I like that your taking the high road in dealing with all this. I met a psychic years ago who told me something about “psychic wars” and psychics being jealous of others psychics gifts and that sort of thing. A big lesson that I’ve learned is to balance my indigo soul/ spiritual idealism with living in the “real world”. I think if this was me I would take legal action, it’s not about money, it’s just the principal of the whole thing. Just my two cents!

  7. Susanne S

    Hi Echo,
    I took my first class from you in 2000 after your wonderful mother and great psychic, who I had readings with for at least 10 years, told me about you. This critic of yours is jealous! I think I know who it is and she has a huge ego and an in-your-face type of personality. I had a reading from her a couple of months ago and not only did she insult me, I got an earful after I told her that I had taken classes from you! BTW – her reading was not accurate at all. A waste of money!
    I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to take several classes from you! Will drop by the Center whenever I can…
    Susanne

    Echo, thanks for sharing but it saddens me that someone could be so unkind & just plain mean.

    You have been an inspiring mentor & a healing light in this community.

    Hi Echo,
    Thanks to you, and wonderful supportive others that work with you, we have strong intuition. We know what a brave and wonderful spirit you are and continue to be.
    We will not fall into fear when we hear or read negitive messages. We know that respect, integrity and a supportive community are what we desire.
    Thanks, and keep up the good work.

    People can be such jerks. Sounds like this person has a insecurity issue. Keep up the good work!

  12. BARBARA K.MICHAEL-GROVER NUMEROLOGIST

    DEAR ECHO, SOUNDS LIKE THIS INDIVIDUAL GOES BACK WITH HER CRITICISM, CONDEMNATION, WITCHCRAFT AND BLACK MAGIC AGAINST YOU OVER MANY PAST INCARNATIONS. SHE IS A TOOL . WHAT HAS TO BE ADDRESSED IS THE MOMENTUM OF NEGATIVITY THAT COMES ALONG WITH HER CRITICISM WHICH COULD BE FALLEN, ANGELS ,DEMONS AND DISCARNATES THAT AMPLIFY THIS ENERGY. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO BE DOING WHAT YOU ARE! DOING! IF YOU WANT TO GET A COPY OF THE `”blue box'” INVOCATION E-MAIL ME AND I WILL SEND IT TO YOU. IT WORKS.! ALSO ‘reverse the tide’ AND MANY OTHER CALLS THAT THE GREAT WHITE BROTHERHOOD HAVE GIVEN THE MESSENGERS MARK AND ELIZABETH PROPHET OVER 50 PLUS YEARS THAT ARE PART OF THE COSMIC CLEANUP WORK THEY HAVE DONE AND THEIR STUDENTS,. CHECKOUT ASCENDED MASTER DECREE SERVICES ON YOU TUBE AND LOOK UP DECREE 2007 – THE JUDGEMENYT CALL AS WELL. GOOD FORTUNE AND ALWAYS VICTORY!

    I worked in the court system for many years before becoming disabled and I can honestly say that a slander and defamation lawsuit is the best way to handle this. This situation is not only personal but it is also going to affect your business. Please speak to your attorney!

  14. connie

    Echo, wow I would say that this person is not a light worker, she is more out to hurt the Bodines, instead of focusing on her gift if she has one. She sounds very evil is the word that came to my mine, take care and watch your back, and I think your Awesome. Connie

    Thank you for sharing, Echo. Those of us who know you and who have attended your events, know that you speak and walk your truth and it all comes from your big heart.

    I too have been stabbed in the back and maligned by someone who thought I was a competitor. In truth, I really wasn’t. That person was drowning in fear and scarcity. It took me more than a year to repair the damage she did to my reputation. By standing in my truth and integrity and being positive, others came to understand that the other person had lied about me and they also realized my truth, gifts and talents. It was a lot of work, and it did pay off positively for me in the end.

    We all need to come from a belief in love and abundance, not fear or scarcity. I’ve seen that those people who are in a place of fear and negativity, eventually fall by the wayside because they can not tolerate being around those of us who are in a place of love, abundance, positivity. and God’s light. (Sucks to be them!) As we each go forward in love and abundance, individually and as community, we will help spread the higher energy of love, joy, abundance.

    Keep up all the great work that you and your brother do. As you both continue to use your gifts, talents and abilities to help others, love, abundance and peace will continue to spread as well. May we all live as One in love, light and peace. Many blessings to you and your family!

    ECHO,

    My nursery mate. I hate to hear this has been happening to you and your family for so long. I have seen many local psychics over 30 years and never met this person and hope I never do. You changed my life path profoundly and forever.

    I have always felt sad that psychics and healers get a bad rap when they do so much good. They have enhanced my life and even at times saved it. I have written about that and our connection in my new book out this fall. People need to know how valuable the Gifts of the Spirit are, especially at this time. Talk to you in September.

    Love always,

    Diana

    Echo as an inexperienced medium , I have recently found out that I have abilities in the last few years, I took classes with you and learned more than I could have even dreamed of. For that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul. The community should always stick together because we still have so much doubting from so many. You are blessed and we are so thankful for your teaching and guidance. – Melissa Lyons

    Light will prevail, as always. Rest easy in this and the good work that you do.

  20. Dear Echo,
    Sending love and light your way from Colorado! I have so enjoyed your wonderful books and your brilliant insight. I wish I lived closer and could take a workshop in person! You have a beautiful gift and were meant to share it with the world. It is such a shame that there are people out there spreading anger rather than joy. Thank you for spreading knowledge, education and light into our world.
    Blessings,
    Michele
