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……..


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,



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.
