IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE ME HAPPY. A flickering candle, smoldering incense. Delicious food. Good wine. Honorable, passionate people. Dazzling sunsets. Enchanting moonbeams. A sensuous life. Perfect espresso to make the perfect cappuccino. For readers to love my books.

Okay, maybe I need to rephrase that opening thought. New opening thought: I AIM HIGH.

Summer Reading!

Come grab a copy of my true-to-life Paranormal novels!  Ahhhh, I love writing books!  Did you know all I ever wanted to be, ever since I was a little girl, is an author?  True story.  :)  But this Paranormal and Supernatural thing... well, that's who I am, too.  I love the work I do as a Paranormal Investigator, and I couldn't imagine not using my Intuition, and teaching others to develop and use their Intuition, too.  As far as the Angels go... once an Angel Whisperer, always an Angel Whisperer.  ;)

The coolest thing for me is, when I write my novels, I get to incorporate everything I experience in real life!  When I describe a haunting or supernatural shake-down in one of my novels, that's the way it really goes, kids.  When I talk about Angelic intervention, Intuition, psychic ability, prophetic dreams --- that's the way it really, actually, is!  So what'cha waitin' for?!  Come grab your summer reading!

AAD Attendees:  All books ordered prior to Authors After Dark 2014, will be waiting for you at the Conference.  Come find me at my Author's Table, to pick up your books!

Madison has been on a roll, lately.  She was just named top attorney at her firm; things never looked better for her career.  Best yet, Madison rarely thinks about her rocky past anymore.  Life is good.

But when her firm's CEO suddenly dies, Madison receives a surprise.  Lars Eichmann has left his star attorney a very special gift.  Madison is about to inherit, of all things.. a house.

But she hasn't inherited just any house... Madison's new home, high atop a hill, is a beautiful, ornate, Victorian manse.  The home is beautiful, but sometimes... strange.

Immediately, odd things begin to happen.  Things moving by themselves.  Voices in the night.  Soon, level headed Madison questions her own sanity.

There's a ghost in that house on the hill, a ghost with an urgent need to talk.  Can Madison suspect her doubt and fear?  Will she survive the shock of what is to come?  The woods surrounding the property hold a secret...  A terrible secret that must come to light.

Just when Madison feels close to her breaking point, one more terrible secret is revealed...  One that will change her life forever!


Aging rock star Cami Carmichael can accept the fact that she's remembered as little more than a one-hit wonder, but she will not accept the fact that her former drug addiction defines her.  Back in her small hometown, nestled in the mountains of upstate New York, Cami is rebuilding her life, and making peace with the past.

Kristle Dunne, the only child of a single parent, is known as Krazy Kristle, for her intense psychic ability.  The two women meet, and a fast friendship is formed.  A friendship that has everything to do with accepting and loving oneself,and others.

But when Hazen McCall, Kristle's childhood friend, becomes demonically oppressed and violent, Cami and Kristle find themselves pulled into an unthinkable scenario, where ultimately, the powers of good and evil, face off.

Paranormal Investigator Jensen White steps in to assist the situation.  What happens next is something no one could have seen coming... except Kristle, who saw it all before it ever happened, in a dream.

Will Jensen's team be able to free Hazen of the demon?  Will the trauma of what they see and sustain, scar Cami and Kristle, forever?  Could there be a purpose, a higher reason, in all this madness?  At one point in both of their lives, Cami and Kristle wished for a reason to live...  they're about to get one.


Kasia Kovalenko is a sociology student best known around campus for her sharp wit and passion for causes.  Lucas Alvarez, son of a famed oceanographer, is known as the tall, dark, and elusive man about campus.  The two meet in a student activist group, and their journey begins...

As the pair team up to work on environmental and animal rights projects, they become incredibly attracted to one another.  Soon, Kasia finds herself drawn into a frenzied relationship where soul-mate love and wild, addictive sex keep her tethered to Lucas, and he to her.  Kasia is thrilled she may have finally met her match...  But Lucas has a secret no one knows, a life quite separate from the respected one he leads outwardly.  When Kasia discovers Lucas' secret, her life and everything she believed about the supernatural world, are changed forever.

There is no turning back now...  Lucas has bonded with Kasia, and will not live without her.  For her part, Kasia has discovered a passion the likes of which she has never experienced.  But there are supernatural politics involved, and not everyone wants to see Lucas and Kasia happy together.  Tensions rise, confrontations occur.  Just when things seem at their most dire, a deeply hidden secret involving Kasia's own bloodline, change the rules of the game entirely.

To be together, both Kasia and Lucas must risk their lives in exchange for the irresistible, intoxicating, strange love they share.  BOOK TRAILER COMING SOON!

Confession of an Angel Whisperer

In October 2013, Angels began talking to me.  There's no other way to say it.

They just... stepped into my life, revealed themselves, and began communicating.

I never saw it coming, I never asked for it. Several things leading up to theAngels' appearance, served as catalysts, I know that now.

To gain my trust, they told me several things that would take place in my life --- AND THEN I WATCHED, AS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THOSE THINGS CAME TO PASS. They allowed every early reading I did to be large, in charge, utterly blowing any other type of reading I'd ever done, out of the water. After that, I was in. And I said so. I said, "Alright. I'll do it. I can do this for The Team."

What's amazing, forever amazing to me, is that... I had never given Angels much consideration. To be honest, I'd always thought them "lite", airy-fairy, wamsy-pamsy, too "fluffy" for me. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT. I had no idea WHO or WHAT, they really are. I was in for an awakening. A crazy, wild, awakening...

I have never read a book on Angels, and I never will. Frankly, I believe I need to eventually *write* a book --- I am awestruck daily, at the depth and scope of Angelic presence, purpose, and ability.

I had never given Angels much consideration, but apparently THEY had been considering ME. And when the time was right, I was activated into that purpose.

 READ MORE on my Angel Whisperer page.

If there was just one thing I could tell you about Angels, that I know to be absolute truth, it would be this: regardless of your personal belief, at least one Angel is with you, right now. That Angel knows you intimately, knows everything about you. That Angel knows your story, your fears, your weaknesses, your talents, and that Angel knows your hopes and dreams. He or she is working for you, supporting you, rooting for you, and has a vested interest in you. Yes, YOU. Yes, that Angel is with you, right now.

Then An Angel Walked In... AND EVERYTHING CHANGED.

The last several days, I've been prefacing my Intuitive Angel Readings with a warning of sorts, an obligatory breakdown of the current trend regarding Angel-human interactions. I've been telling clients: "BE AWARE, AFTER YOUR READING, SEVERAL SHIFTS MAY TAKE PLACE."

Why am I doing this?
Well, apart from the fact that I believe I've been instructed to, there's the fact that feedback from clients has been off the hook --- in terms of shake-downs, break-throughs, shifts and spontaneous occurrences (including serendipity) that take place in their lives, sometimes immediately, post reading.


When an Angel shows up in our lives, the effects can be profound. Exponential. Life-changing. Tide-turning. You must understand: some Angels have the ability to create RADICAL changes in our lives. It is often an Angel that is dispatched or assigned, to create a significant change in our personal atmospheres.

Sometimes, Angels come into our lives to guide or console us. Sometimes, they are sent to assist or inspire us.

But other times, an Angel is literally dispatched to shake things up, break something apart, stitch something together, redirect us, restructure our lives, or facilitate strategic meetings.

Here are some of the RADICAL SHIFTS I've seen Angels cause in people's lives:

* Spontaneous and even miraculous healing.
* Connections to the right resources, so we can heal ourselves.
* The right person or opportunity suddenly comes along.
* A connection or synchronicity that shifts our life.
* Emotional healing
* Depression lifts
* Sudden positivity or optimism
* New business ideas
* Financial increase
* New employment
* Clarity as to sense of purpose
* Restored marriages
* Romance and romantic connections
* A strong urge to be more spiritual
* A strong urge to draw closer to family
* Sudden phone calls from those we're estranged from
* Addictions break or lift
* Destructive patterns will break or lift

We can be in the most dire of straits, the most depressed, broke, and despondent we've ever been... AND THEN AN ANGEL WALKS IN, and everything changes.

We can be at our wit's end, out of ideas, drained on all levels. AND THEN AN ANGEL WALKS IN... and suddenly, there's a shift.

Expect shifts and blessings, when you call on the Angels.
Be confident in the supernatural support they bring.
Talk to your Angels; talk to them and thank them.
Right now, an Angel could be preparing to CHANGE your life.

10 things I need you to know --- RIGHT NOW.

1. You are more powerful than you realize. Any moment you choose, you can create powerful shifts in your life. If you want to, YOU WILL. In fact, the only things stopping you are self doubt and fear. BE BOLD. Claim your power, shift your life.

2. Your past does not, and need not, define you. Never let anyone continually bring up mistakes you made. Never let anyone box you into a definition of who you *are*, based on who you *were*. That was then; this is NOW. Remember that.

3. Learn to read your signs. The unseen world communicates with you constantly --- your Angels use dreams, Intuition, inspired thoughts, and numerical sequences, to communicate with you (among other things). Are you paying attention to your signs? Angels are trying to help you. It's their JOB to help you. Recognize your signs. (This post may be one of them...)

4. One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself, is to eat properly. Food can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. Food can create health, or create sickness. Food can add pounds, or facilitate natural weight loss. Food can heal you, or poison you. Are you eating properly? If not, and you need help, comment this post --- I'm here for you.

5. You are Intuitive. You were born with a pineal gland, and a finely engineered body that is receptive to energetic signals and supernatural communications. It is your responsibility to learn to use these abilities. When you do, it'll be like opening a treasure chest--- your whole world will expand. Use the gifts you've been given.

6. Not everyone has your best interest at heart. Truly unselfish people are quite rare, actually. And sometimes, even those close to us, secretly wish we'd fall. Therefore, choose your friends wisely, and the members of your inner circle, even more wisely.

7. Love your family. Regardless of how crazy they are, regardless of how crazy they make you. Love your family; they won't be around forever. If they're toxic, love them from a distance. But for God sake, love them --- while you can.

8. Your childhood programs play more frequently in your head, than you realize. What you saw, what you dealt with, what you survived, what you were exposed to. These things formed the basis of who you are. Celebrate what was healthy; heal and release what was not.

9. The media lies to you. It tells you what a "real man" is, what a woman "should" look like, and what products/foods/cars/etc. you "should" use/eat/drive. REJECT IT ALL. It's just businesses trying to make money, organizations trying to control others. In the process, they mess with your head, and ruin lives. Think for yourself!

10. You are a most unique creature. A finely tuned organic ensemble that has been equipped with abilities and talents unlike anyone else. So never try to "fit in". Instead, celebrate and liberate, your unique difference.

Just a few thoughts and positive intentions... from my heart to yours.

Leaving the Lakehouse...

I suppose if I'm being honest, dreaming about the lakehouse three nights in a row, means something. And what it means is that my heart is clear but I'm still in pain, nevertheless...  Because I'm leaving the lakehouse, at last.

Yeah, I said that.
"Leaving it, at last."
It was inevitable.  Necessary.  It was time.

Just as it was important for me to go there---and experience everything that was destined to go down at that crooked little cottage on the lake---it was equally important for me to eventually leave it.

The winds have changed.
That era has come to an end.
Distant shores are calling...

I knew months ago, I had to leave the lakehouse.  Everytime we went, I could barely stand it --- I either had to change it completely, or get the hell out of there.  Too many ghosts of the past haunted that crooked cottage.  And when that happens, you either have to change the environ, or vacate it.

I chose to vacate it.
I'd gone there for a purpose, a period of my life, a season.
A season in my life that was a transition, a turning point.

My time at the lakehouse was literally the most refining, and defining period, of my life.  I found out who I am---REALLY. I found out what I'm made of---REALLY. I discovered what I want from this life---REALLY.

At the lakehouse, I discovered what's most important to me, what I need to survive, thrive, and be happy. I also learned to rely on God. I was reduced to my knees on several occasions, which is a beautiful thing, because when we're reduced to our knees, we are often reduced to God---and that's when the beautiful can happen.

Enter Jon Whittaker.
My game-changer, my history-maker, my restorer, my twin flame.
Fuck a soul mate. You haven't loved until you encounter a twin flame.

Jon Whittaker.  My twin flame.  My Boaz.
(Look it up; it's Scriptural. The story of Ruth and Boaz is a must know for everyone still waiting for their BIG LOVE.)

Almost as soon as Jon came into my life, he began extracting me from the lakehouse. Giving me things and showing me things that ultimately taught me I no longer belonged there.

There is danger in lingering too long in the ashes of the past.
There is danger in staying too long in a place that is no longer a part of your story.

So, the lakehouse.
We let it go.
Had to let it go.

It served its' purpose.
And now, it's time to go.

I'll never forget the times there.  The dinners.  The parties.  The overnights.  The beach nights.  The sunrises.  The sunsets.  My Cheetah birthday parties.  My transformation, my evolution, my revolution.
It all happened there---there, at the lakehouse.  So one more classic lakehouse song?  Just one more spin...?  Maybe two...?

Jon says lakes are beautiful, but I belong at the ocean.
I know that's true.
My mermaid soul longs for, and reaches for, the ocean daily...
So... here we go.  *inhale*

Intuitive Angel Readings

Intuitive Angel Readings are unlike anything I've ever experienced, and these readings are unlike any other kind of reading I've ever done before.  The Angels are unique, and precise.  

What do Angels do?  They are game-changers, and solution-bringers.  Angels are soothing and healing when you need it, but never forget --- they literally have the power to restore or redirect lives, when need be.

I've seen Angels provide healing instructions for people who are ill.  The Angels are interested in guiding us to our highest good, our highest destiny, our highest calling.  The Angels want to see you live your best life.

Where does my Intuition come in?  Each reading is a tailored blend of Angel messages and Intuition --- that's the best way I can describe it.  In addition to the visions and information I receive from your Angels, I tap into you---the person you are, and the fabric of your life, using my Intuition.  I do not use any tools or cards.  

What should you expect in your reading?  My best answer is, have no expectations!  Every reading is completely unique.  Sometimes, spirits of loved ones who've passed away show up.  When the Angels arrive, they are always on a mission.  They come to tell you what you need to hear the most at this time in your life.  Please read that last sentence again; it's important and sums up everything.

At the end of each reading, I usually have what I've come to call a "Spiritual Prescription" for people; this is literally a list of things they must do, in order to get on their path, achieve goals, align themselves with their destiny and best life.

How long will your reading last, and how soon will you receive it?  Readings are 30 minutes.  You will be booked at my absolutely earliest opening.  When booking, you will receive multiple appointments to choose from; therefore please choose the day and time that works best for you.  If you are undergoing grief, trauma, tragedy, or extenuating circumstances (severe pain or feeling severely lost), please specify at the time of booking; those clients are treated with care and priority.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all my clients, readers, fans and friends.  It has been an honor to read you.  Thank you for trusting me to help guide your life.  Thank you for trust me to be your Angel Whisperer... it is a humbling honor.

Readings are scheduled within 24-48 hours of booking.

Looking ahead to NEW MOON: 3 Powerful Aromatherapy Blends

New Moon is an auspicious time to work with essential oils (which are powerful and living) and dried herbs, to create all manner of beneficial blends.  Below, I'm sharing three of my favorite.  Enjoy!

xo Jolynne
#ParaGoddess  #AngelWhisperer


15 drops Cinnamon essential oil
15 drops Eucalyptus essential oil 
15 drops Rosemary essential oil 
3 gallons of fresh, clean water - lukewarm is best 

Using a sink or non-plastic bucket, blend all ingredients. You may use a sponge, cloth or mop to clean surfaces and floors safely with this wash.

The ingredients are germ-busters, healthful to inhale and promote blessing energies, too. 
What an incredible mixture!

WHY THESE OILS? The Eucalyptus essential oil is anti-microbial & anti-viral. Cinnamon obliterates mold & fungus spores. Rosemary blesses your home. REMINDER! Please do not allow the essential oils, particularly the cinnamon used in the surface and floor wash blend, to directly touch your skin.


Some botanicals are readily associated with hearth and home. Such as apples and cinnamon.  A wonderful aspect of the apple, is that it embodies the shape of a star nestled within it's belly, formed by the seeds.  Those seeds are a symbol of protection. Cinnamon is associated with prosperity and good fortune.

Oranges have long been considered a source of good health and good fortune. High in vitamin C (which boosts the immune system and therefore overall health), oranges were once acquired only as imports by the wealthy.

These three simple ingredients - apple, cinnamon and orange - sweetened by a touch of real vanilla (associated with love, beauty, harmony and passion) become a powerful simmering potpourri blend to bless and fortify your home.

1 large apple, cut lengthwise across the belly (so, to reveal the star shape within)
1 large orange, cut into quarters (4 is the number of stability and strong foundations
8 cinnamon sticks (8 is the number of success and luck; of prosperity and good fortune)
2 tsp vanilla (to sweeten and harmonize the blend; 2 to symbolize balance)

Bring a medium sized pot of clean water to boil. When the water boils, reduce to low and maintain on a low simmer. Add first the apple halves, then the four pieces of orange, then the cinnamon sticks. Pour in two teaspoons of vanilla and gently stir the mixture using a wooden spoon.

As you create this simmering potpourri, employ visualization by creating an image of your home being a place of safety, blessing, harmony, protection and prosperity. Hold this image in your mind. Allow it to deepen as the scented steam rises.

DO NOT ALLOW TO BOIL. As the water evaporates off, add more. Do not simmer potpourri for longer than three days. When you are through, discard of ingredients by pouring out onto the earth, never into the garbage.


25 drops Lavender essential oil
15 drops Chamomile essential oil 
15 drops Neroli or Orange essential oil

*NOTE: Neroli and Orange come from the same plant but are derived from different parts.  There is quite a spread in the cost for each, so choose whichever oil best suits your budget, knowing that they're in fact, from the same plant. 

Blend all oils in the top of a candle-warmed oil burner (these are available at all large department stores and many supermarkets.) Add several drops of water (1-2 TB) and allow the oils to congeal on the top.  No stirring is required.

Warning:  These oils can be irritating for some skin types.  Handle with care.  Light a tea-light candle in the bottom of the oil burner.   Allow the scent of the oils to waft on the air. As you inhale them, the limbic area of your brain will be affected and as a result of these specific oils, a relaxed state will occur.  

Energizing Mist for optimal MENTAL CLARITY 

1 quart fresh water
10 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops tangerine essential oils

Combine in a mister, shake. Mist furniture, air, linens and clothing. Also excellent as a room freshener or for spritzing before the arrival of company.
