At least once a week someone asks me when my family is going to have a TV show. Most of you know that I come from a very psychic family. My brother Michael is a well known psychic here in the Twin Cities along with my sister Nikki who is a spiritual healer and psychic medium. Our mom Mae was a gifted psychic/tarot reader and I too have psychic and healing gifts. Michael and I are best known in the media for our ghostbusting abilities. We’ve been in this business for fifty years.
Getting a TV show is not an easy task. First you need to come up with a production company that’s interested in you enough to invest five to ten thousand dollars into making what is called a Sizzle. It’s a 3-5 minute video highlighting all of your talent and abilities. Over the years we’ve been approached by and worked with at least a dozen production companies trying to sell a show about a psychic family. We’ve come very close, but something always happens and it falls apart.
A large issue is what the networks consider sellable. They think people are solely interested in ghosts, so that’s what they always end up focusing on. When I ask people what they would like to see on a weekly show about a psychic family, their answers are quite different. They want to see everyday interaction between us. What it’s like being psychic or being able to heal someone. They want to know what our home lives are like. What do our spouses/partners think of our work. There’s been so much on television the last few years about ghosts that the people I talk to are pretty much done with that topic and want to learn more about the field of spirituality and the paranormal.
I would love a show where we can teach folks how to develop their psychic gifts, where they can hear and see the truth about ghosts, where people can learn about the gift of healing and what it’s really like living with these abilities. Unfortunately, the latest issue we’ve encountered is that the networks consider me too old to be on TV. They want to find young people that have the same wisdom and knowledge we’ve learned over the last fifty years, and I can’t see how that is going to happen. We have learned so much about this field through trial and error, learning things on our own or with the help of our spirit guides. It’s not the kind of thing you can take a quick class and know all the abc’s of the paranormal. It’s been a very long journey to say the least.
Many years ago a production company from L.A. flew into the Twin Cities and followed us around for a couple of days. They did a fantastic piece on my family that I want to show you. It was truly the best segment any of the production companies have done. Here is a link to that show:
One of my goals for the New Year is to be more active in bringing you helpful information about psychic abilities and development, living by your intuition, the gift of healing, ghosts, the dying process and life after death.
I’m writing this blog because I want to let you know that we have been approached several times about having a TV show. We’ve sat in many brainstorming sessions with producers and writers, signed dozens of contracts and yet nothing has ever come to fruition. I often wonder if the Universe/God isn’t protecting us from that lifestyle. I’ve seen first hand what the entertainment world can do to a person and it’s tough to maintain your integrity. TV show or not, we all continue to do our work. Michael’s website is www.michaelbodine.com, Nikki’s is: www.nikkibodine.com and mine is www.echobodine.com.
Michael has written a book called Growing Up Psychic which gives you a pretty good look into the crazy household we grew up in. Growing up with four psychics in the family was ……….well………..hard to describe. I have written several books on a variety of paranormal subjects available on my website.
Check the calendar on my website for upcoming psychic development classes and a brand new class in February which is an Intuition Support Group. The on-line psychic development class is beginning mid January.
Happy New Year,
Will Riker! NOT BAD 😉
Show is great! I’d love to see someone pick it up.
“They want to find young people that have the same wisdom and knowledge we’ve learned over the last fifty years.”
That’s so tv!!!!!
I’d love to see you on a show, but agree it may indeed be the universe keeping you safe!!!
Wow I loved that video Echo of you and your family, I’m sure there was not a dull moment in your all house growing up.
Hello Echo, This was just wonderful! Your whole darn family is extraordinarily attractive, and I think your voice is very similar to your Moms. Thank you for sharing this. I hope 2016 is a magnificent year to you and yours! Yvonne
I’ve followed your family since the early 90’s. I’ve had a reading with Nikki after my husbands transition to the other side. Great video. I also “know things” before they happen. Since my husband’s death I’ve become clairaudient. What a gift to have received. I could use some fine tuning instructions & a direction where to go or use this gift.
There are soo many low level shows on now..I don’t watch them..you can’t help but see in the previews how bad they are! I would hate for you and your family to be in the category of creepy. If you could be the producer..that would maybe work. You would have control and produce a quality show.
You all should have a You Tube channel… People would follow you by subscribing.
You have done so much to bring light to the natural gifts we all possess. I agree with other posts, YouTube channels, Periscope, link the video segments to your FaceBook page and your followers will continue to spread the word. We all know the importance of having light workers with knowledge and experience, and have benefitted from your willingness to pass along all you know. Thank you for your efforts to continue educating the rest of the world, despite the overall lack of response from the media. We sincerely appreciate al you have done and continue to do.
Love and Light ~ Thea
