Spiritual & Grief Support

Very often people don’t so much doubt their guidance as their ability to follow it. This is where friends, the right kind of friends, come in. “Trust yourself,” these friends say. ”Try it and see what happens. Maybe your guidance is right.”

Energy Art Readings

Debra Joy combines her love of color, intuition and seeing/sensing auras to create a drawing specifically for you. Often it shows your past, your present and possibilities for your future. She balances her readings with humor, laughter, MIRTH (Medicine IS Relationships, Trust & Humor) and spirit leaving you with a sense of hope, empowerment and a picture to reflect your auric beauty.

Much of my training in auras and energy was in the 1980’s while visiting some very special folks in Cave Junction, OR. Through these teachings I lived, learned and accepted more of who I was and who I could be.

In 1989 I became a registered nurse and learned to keep quiet about auras, colors and light. I learned to lie very well to other clinicians, about what I saw inside people’s bodies, and outside. The Dr’s would ask,” How did you know that this person would develop this so soon?” I just answered, “Lucky guess.”

Twenty years later I scheduled my first Aura Reading Class-it was July of 2009. The cat was out of the bag! Newspaper reporters and photographers were there and people signed up. My secrets came out of the proverbial closet. Since then I have been featured on radio shows, in newspapers and periodicals. I also give readings or teach classes in salons, florists and specialty shops. My prayer is simply this, “Dear God, please, always let me give people a sense of hope and let them feel empowered through your words.”

Since 2009, I have given over 1500 readings and taught “Accepting Who I am: Lessons in Aura and Energy Reading”,  Levels 1 & 2 at least 50 times combined. It is my joy to work with the Universal Spirit this way. I love people uncovering that they have an infinite amount of healing abilities… and it is needed NOW!

I still do nursing work, and occasionally, I still lie to doctors.
