Niagara Gazette — Until about six months ago, Bruns ran her own business consulting company for seven years where she was a self-proclaimed closet medium, using her reading talents only very subtly.
“I had always been afraid that if my corporate clients found out I was doing this medium stuff, they would be” put off, she said. “But the reality of it is that’s why I was successful and that’s why they were successful, because I taught them to use their gut. I would say, ‘this is not a good deal even though on paper it might look good.’ “
But Brun said she found the consulting business to be spiritually unfulfilling, and opened up her seasonal shop in Wilson in January.
By ditching her “day job,” Bruns also found the time to pursue another of her passions: animals. So she ran for a position and was elected to the newly reformed SPCA of Niagara board of directors.
“It’s time to make a difference and not a dollar,” Bruns said of her mindset at the time.
Part of this change in her outlook on life includes providing drum circle classes and sessions, meditation classes, reflexology classes, intuitive development circles and a variety of seminars at the North Tonawanda location of Spiritually Rooted.
The readings, though, are her primary service.
“I tap into (customers’) energy and talk to their spirit guides or their loved ones, whoever comes through. A lot of times (the spirits) will give you future information, it just depends. My goal is not to give you your future, my goal is to help you, to heal you,” Bruns said.
Bruns tries to know as little about her clients as possible before they come in for a reading, not only to prove she didn’t do Internet research ahead of time, but also for her own benefit.
