Sleeping Gypsy...

The Woman Behind the Cards

Hello and Welcome to Sleeping Gypsy's Homepage!

My name is Leslie. I wanted to take a few moments to tell you a little about myself so that you could get to know me a little better. Thank you for taking the time to sit with me here so that we can connect in this way.

I came into the world in 1956 from a modest household, born in the midwest with roots in the Ozark Mountains that take two paths. The one from my mother's side that travels the paths of the Trail of Tears on her mother's side and the Scottish Highlands alongside Robert the Bruce on her father's side. And the other which traces back through my father's side into the Pennsylvania Dutch countryside via Amish, Mennonite and Quaker roots via Germany and the Netherlands. Both sides being Anabaptist, I came to the Lord officially as an adult through my own free will. I am a Christian through and through and this is where my faith lies. That does not, however, prevent me from realizing the truth of the fact that all paths lead to the Divine. All paths are welcome within my realm of reasoning and understanding and all are welcome.

I was four years old when I first became aware that I could see and hear things that others seemingly could not. My child's mind thought that everyone could see spirits, talk to the deceased and could sense the future, read energy, see auras and possess empathy. So, first and foremost, I am a medium and an intuitive empath. Then, at the age of fourteen I discovered the Tarot when I literally stumbled upon my first deck of Rider-Waite cards in a quaint little gift shop. I was drawn to them instantly. They come alive and speak to me like nothing I have ever experienced. My connection with them was immediate and I have been reading tarot ever since that very first day.

At the age of twenty one...Saturday, September 4th to be exact...I was the victim of a fatal motorcycle accident which caused me to have a life changing experience...a Near Death Experience, to be exact. This event changed the way I looked at life, the Afterlife and the ways of not only the physical world in which we find ourselves now, but also the spiritual world and what is involved in the connection between the two. And, while I was very young I knew that the other realms existed as I experienced a connection with them but in a very vague way because of my age, this one unique experienced opened up whole new realizations for me where the psychic realms are concerned. This experience was so profound that it shaped me into who I am today and continues to do so every day of my life.

Being able to visit the Afterlife has put me upon a path of ministry of helping others to heal and have faith. It has brought me closer to God than anyone could possibly imagine. The visit cleared the fog of confusion and indecision that had been dogging me most of my young life. And while I cannot say that the journey was easy, it has been so worth the while.

Tarot is a tool, just like many other tools that we use every day. I regard the Tarot as a device that opens a doorway within myself and others that enables me to be able to help people know what sort of energies surround, in the past as well as in the future. The Tarot is a conduit that helps me to channel messages from other entities from other they angels, deceased loved ones, guides, the higher self...even entities from other planes, planets and beyond. I never know when a session begins what will happen or who will come through. But I can tell you that every encounter is enlightening, uplifting, revealing and empowering.

I am nothing special. I hold no "gift" other than the ability to channel messages from other places from this realm and beyond. I am a messenger...a radio that picks up signals so that they can be relayed back to whomever needs to hear them.

I don't need to be in your physical presence to be able to deliver these messages; on the contrary, it is better that we are not in each other's space or around other people when doing a session, as so many other energies can come through from the surroundings and other objects such as furniture, clothing, jewelry, dwellings...the list goes on and on. Telephone readings are my preferred method, though I do occasional house calls when the situation calls for it. Voice communication lends for a clean and clear signal and proves superior for the subsequent connection with spirit.

You will not see the disclaimer "For Entertainment Purposes Only" posted anywhere on my web site, in my office or any other place where I lend my services. The reason being is that I am not doing this work - my life's work - to entertain. If one is seeking entertainment, then I suggest to them that they hire a birthday clown. My sole purpose - which is reflected in the modest fee that I ask just to pay for my web site and to keep the lights on - is to help others to make sense of the paths that appear before them and that they find themselves journeying upon. I give no guarantees other than leaving a session with much more than they come with.

I hope this gives you a little better understanding of who I am and where I am coming from. If you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to ask me via email, phone call, social media or even written letter. Thank you again for taking the time to get to know me. I hope to one day get to meet you too!
