Meet Wendy Marks in Needham

Today we’d like to introduce you to Wendy Marks.

Wendy, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have been psychic and a medium all my life. The discovery of my particular gifts occurred when I was a small child. I saw my grandmother getting on a plane for home, and saw the plane crash, so I called her hotel and told her not to take the plane. She didn’t, and the plane did crash. When Nana arrived home she kissed the top of my head, and said to my mother “I guess she has IT.” That’s what we called psychic ability in my family. IT. Most of them had some type of gift. But I had not a clue how to use IT. It would take me many years and a few bumps to figure IT out.

From a very young age I had medical intuition: I can see into a person’s body, often finding the source of a problem that has eluded mainstream diagnostics. I didn’t know how to use my gifts appropriately, but I knew I would go into a helping profession, so I went on to train in traditional helping fields, worked as a therapist, non-profit administrator, geriatric care manager, and director of an educational collaborative, among other things. It wasn’t until much later that I received training which enabled me to use my abilities to help people heal and to help others to sort out what their gift is and to make proper use of it.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I was blessed to be in a family where my gifts were not seen as strange or abnormal, but I soon learned that acceptance at home wouldn’t help me in the outside world. As a child I didn’t understand that other people didn’t “see” like me. I thought everyone knew that the teacher was cranky because she had a terrible bellyache or that the kid sitting down the row from me had something wrong in her brain that turned out to be a tumor. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t normal, that my ability was unusual; I thought everyone else was like me. It was confusing.

Throughout my teens and twenties I felt like a bit of a freak, and even being in the mainstream position of rehabilitation counselor I could not help but use my psychic gifts. I was a “closet psychic” and good at diagnostics. But without a person’s permission to “see” the way I did, I knew I was transgressing ethical boundaries.

I also realized that this gift was confusing to other people. Those who knew me were constantly asking, “You’re looking at me funny. Did I say something wrong?” And I myself felt pretty out of control about the whole thing. I felt inadequate to deal with my gifts and often saw them as a curse. This led to many years of denial and frustration.

I knew there was a better way, I just didn’t know what it was. It wasn’t until many years later that I was at last guided to become trained to use my gifts properly and to help others heal and, if they wish, to develop their own spiritual path and psychic gifts.

Please tell us about Wendy Marks.
I am a sole practitioner working with individuals and families. I work with people of all ages. I work as a medical intuitive, psychotherapist, spiritual counselor, and hands on healer, teacher, and lecturer.

Most folks are not familiar with the idea of a medical intuitive. We are people who are able to see what is going on in someone’s body. We are not perfect. I’m correct about 97% of the time, but we are often called in western medicine cannot come up with a diagnosis, or good treatment.

I see people in my office in Needham and by phone or FaceTime all over the world. I enjoy all aspects of what I do. But the medical intuitive part is what I am best known for. That is because psychic ability is pretty rare.

Also Germaine to my spiritual counseling and guidance work I have written a book called “Your Soul’s Companion” about creating and sustaining a spiritual practice available on Amazon as book, kindle and audiobook. I am currently working on a second book about raising psychic children with my writing partner Susan Spector.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
When I was a teenager I had the great experience of building a car with my father and brother. We got this kit that looked like an MG but was called a MIGI, and took an old VW bug and married them to create a cool looking car. My nephew still drives it, though when you shift it feels more like a big bug, than a sports car.
