This week, we sat down with Julie Ann Guthrie-Smulson. She is a healer, medium, reiki master, and spiritual alchemist. She’s the author of Master In the Making and The Theory of Eight, and the host of the Spiritual Alchemy Energy podcast. We discuss how she came to find her gift and a few fascinating and spooky encounters that she experienced along the way. We do discuss a topic that I personally found to be a bit controversial, medical mediumship. I did my best, as I always do, to be open to the guest’s experiences and knowledge, but I have to say, we here at Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling always recommend that, if you are experiencing a medical crisis, always always always seek and follow the advice of a licensed medical professional before seeking spiritual council of any kind. All that being said, this was a very fun and interesting chat.

Please welcome to the campfire, Julie Ann Guthrie-Smulson.

The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will flag especially graphic or intense content so as to never put you in an uninformed or unprepared position.
