Patrick’s gift of being a soul reader has existed within him his entire life. However, while going through major life-changing events, he experienced a spiritual breakthrough and his intuitive abilities became more refined.  He is able to connect with your soul to receive, interpret, and communicate information that would be helpful to bring into your consciousness at the time of the reading. Real healing starts at the soul level. In order to achieve healing on an emotional or physical level we have to go deep into the core of who we really are.  

During a session with Patrick he accomplishes this by tuning directly into the vibration of your “higher self”; receiving clear information and guidance, assisting you in releasing blockages to your heart’s desire.    ‘Come learn what you soul wants you to know!.’
