Richard M Schickel

Richard Schickel is a natural-born intuitive. He learned how to harness his spiritual gifts and developed them into being a gifted psychic medium and medical intuitive and healer. He is also an empath who is sensitive to the needs and wants of people around him.

Schickel is able to read a person’s heart, mind and soul, and uses his discernment to determine what has happened in their lives that has brought them to where they are today. He likes to talk about how people build castle walls around themselves to protect them from people and events in their lives. Schickel is able to parachute into the courtyard of a person’s castle and learn what is important to them and will allow them to change and grow in their lives.

Spiritual, mental, emotional and physical healings have resulted in using Schickel's methods. He credits God, the Holy Spirit or the universal energy of love and healing as the source of this information and energy. He advises people to allow themselves to love themselves first, best and always. This involves forgiving and releasing unwanted parts of your past or past relationships, feelings and emotions.

Schickel is a teacher and a student. He listens and evaluates what his clients are saying and feeling because he can feel their energy in his own body. He leads the search for them to rediscover the joy in their lives. Schickel advocates that his clients “Pray, meditate and shut up and listen!”  He teaches them how to seek and connect with their own divine connection with what they believe is the creator energy.

You never know what Schickel is going to say, but he is honest, caring and discreet and wants you to have the best life you can.

Schickel's most recent book is "What to Do When the IRS is After You."
