Meet Reverend Judith Catalano, one of the co-founders behind the establishment of the Community Church for Spiritual Growth. She also holds the role of director at the San Jose Psychic Institute, an institution that has been serving our community since its inception in 2010. At the institute, they offer a diverse range of classes tailored to cater to both those who are stepping into the realm of spirituality and individuals who are earnestly committed to nurturing their spiritual journey. Their curriculum encompasses a spectrum of offerings, including psychic kindergarten for an interactive and enjoyable learning experience, as well as a comprehensive one-year clairvoyant program.
Can you describe a specific instance where your clairvoyant abilities provided insight or guidance that had a significant impact on someone’s life? How did this experience unfold, and what were the outcomes?In our teachings, we cover clairvoyance, which involves perceiving energy from the space located just above the forehead – commonly referred to as the ‘third eye.’ Every person possesses this potential, and it’s time for everyone to tap into it. So, when you inquire about this, you’re essentially delving into something quite interesting.
Throughout my extensive experience, having conducted over 6,000 sessions, I’ve realized that as a psychic reader, I’m not only interpreting others but also learning about myself in the process. Each individual who comes to us becomes like a psychic book, a unique text to decipher.
Imagine this hypothetical scenario: I close my eyes to read someone, and I observe a dark, crackling energy situated at the back of their head. This energy corresponds to the spiritual aspect of the physical body. It appears like tightly bound energy around the neck and upper back – perhaps akin to fibromyalgia or simply tension.
What transpires in this reading is intriguing. As psychic readers, we have the ability to perceive this energy and then use clairvoyance to remove it from our own energetic space. Essentially, we are healing ourselves through the act of interpreting others. However, the outcomes for the person in front of us are determined by their own spiritual journey – we can’t impose or influence their choices.
Ultimately, the true benefits of this practice emerge for those who engage with it on a personal level.
Many people are curious about the ethical considerations surrounding clairvoyance. How do you ensure that your readings or interpretations respect the privacy and well-being of the individuals seeking your guidance?Initially, I was considering the ethical aspect of readings, wondering about the ethical implications in this field. Then, it clicked – you’re referring to the image of TV psychics or individuals resembling gypsy psychics. Let me clarify, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with gypsy psychics; it’s merely a term. What you’re pointing towards is a viewpoint that could be described as atheistic, where the existence of spirits is questioned.
In the realm of psychic work, there indeed exist practitioners who could be labeled as charlatans. However, when it comes to our practice, we operate within a spiritual community. In a psychic reading, it’s a form of communication between spirits. We don’t impose instructions or dictate actions. We view everyone as a creative being and respect their autonomy. Our approach is centered on acknowledging and greeting the individual’s true essence – a timeless, creative spirit within a human vessel.
We’ve established a written agreement that clients read and sign before their sessions. This emphasizes our stance as not being typical psychic advisors who offer step-by-step solutions for certain outcomes. Our approach is distinct.
As for confidentiality, since we approach this from a spiritual perspective, it’s akin to a confessional. When someone sits before us, they’re baring their soul, and we hold this act in the highest regard. Our respect for their privacy is unwavering. We don’t casually share what we perceive, even though this might put us at a disadvantage in terms of publicity.
Indeed, there might be misconceptions, like equating ‘clairvoyance’ with ‘psychic’ abilities. To clear the air, ‘clairvoyance’ is derived from the French term meaning ‘clear seeing,’ while ‘psychic’ originates from the Greek word meaning ‘of the spirit.’ We’re not just dabbling in mere psychic activities; our focus is on nurturing spiritual capabilities.
Healing can take various forms, from physical to emotional and spiritual. Could you share a case where your healing practices contributed to a notable transformation or recovery in someone’s health or well-being? What modalities or techniques did you employ?My perspective on this is centered around a core principle – healing from within, from your very essence as a spiritual being. You, as a spiritual being, are the creator of your own physical form. This fundamental idea shapes our teachings. We guide individuals in understanding and harnessing their spiritual anatomy within the context of the human body.
When you mention psychological, neurological, and emotional aspects, our approach involves holistic healing. As spirits, we aren’t isolated fragments. For instance, when dealing with emotions, we address the second chakra and even the amygdala in the brain. These aspects contribute to mental image pictures present in your personal energy field, which subsequently influence your thoughts and actions. By identifying and clearing out those mental image pictures that aren’t authentically yours, we address the psychological dimension.
While psychology is a human construct designed to decipher human behavior, our approach transcends such frameworks. We don’t operate within the confines of conventional psychology, which often involves years of cyclical analysis. What we can achieve in about five minutes often takes others a decade of therapy. This difference stems from our spiritual perspective, which bypasses the complexities of human-created systems.
Observing the field of psychiatry, I hold immense respect for it, having friends both within and outside the profession seeking readings and healings from me. However, I perceive a detachment in its approach, often aligned with analytical and atheistic viewpoints. It seems clinical and detached, lacking a holistic understanding of the human experience.
Of course, I’m not dismissing medical interventions entirely. If I were to break my arm, I’d undoubtedly seek medical attention. Our approach is distinctive – we address the spirit within the body, facilitating profound healing at the spiritual level. When this internal healing occurs, tangible changes manifest externally.
Many people are interested in harnessing the power of manifestation to achieve their goals. Can you provide an example of a time when you effectively guided someone through the process of manifesting their desires? What key steps or principles were involved in this manifestation journey?Absolutely, the power to create and manifest is one of your inherent spiritual abilities. Alongside this, there’s the ability to heal.
As spiritual beings, we originate from a state of well-being, and you are fundamentally a creator. Remarkably, everything that unfolds in your reality is a product of your creation – whether it’s positive, negative, attractive, or challenging. This philosophy forms the foundation of our introductory course known as ‘Tap into Your True Self.’ This course delves deep into this concept, and we dedicate two comprehensive classes to it.
In this learning journey, you acquire a foundational spiritual tool referred to as the ‘mock up’ tool. It’s essentially a technique for creating your desired outcomes. Our website’s blog page and testimonials offer detailed examples, providing insights into the range of things that students have manifested using this tool.
Personally, I can share some instances of what I’ve manifested over the last two decades. For instance, I haven’t purchased my own car in 20 years. I’ve utilized the mock up tool to attract new cars as gifts from others. This process often involves invoking our healing masters to assist us in these manifestations. Even in everyday scenarios like going to a shopping center, I employ this technique to easily secure a prime parking spot right upfront.
Moreover, I recall wanting a specific pair of shoes. As someone who isn’t fond of traditional shoe shopping, I put out the image of the desired shoes in my mind, with the condition that they be on sale. To my amazement, I spotted the exact pair at a non-specialty store called Ross department store. These shoes were in my size and marked down to a mere $12. This experience illustrated once more how we integrate the manifestation tool into our lives.
This tool, the ‘mock up,’ is something we teach in our foundational class ‘Tap into Your True Self,’ offering you the means to harness your creative potential.
Manifestation often requires aligning one’s thoughts, emotions, and actions. How do you help individuals overcome potential obstacles such as self-doubt, limiting beliefs, or conflicting intentions that might hinder their ability to successfully manifest their desires?Manifestation often hinges on aligning your thoughts with energetic connections. However, assisting individuals in surmounting obstacles like self-doubt, limiting beliefs, or conflicting tensions that obstruct their successful manifestation is crucial.
This is an excellent question. In our ‘Tap into Your True Self’ foundational class, we deeply explore this aspect. One particular module, occurring in the fifth week of the curriculum, is titled ‘Happiness.’
Challenges such as self-doubt and conflicting ideals embody energies that you, as a spirit, have absorbed. Your inherent ability as a creator can be likened to a natural flow. I recall my childhood, a time when I was distinctly aware of this process. If I desired something, I’d visualize it, project the mental image, and within a week, it would materialize – be it a new shirt or a toy. My young understanding communicated with the supreme being that creation is simple and enjoyable, an innate spiritual aptitude.
Our innate ability to create is effortless and enjoyable. Yet, societal influences such as parental teachings, religious doctrines, governmental structures, and sociocultural norms often imbue us with notions of struggle and limitation. We might hear that life is arduous, or that one must toil vigorously to achieve desires. However, as spiritual beings, our creation originates from a state of ease.
What we do in our teachings is work with the specific energies you mentioned. Various individuals grapple with distinct hindrances residing within their energetic space. Examples include beliefs like ‘you can’t surpass your father’ or ‘you can’t have more than your sister.’ These mental images are energy patterns that contribute to self-doubt. Interestingly, the voice of self-doubt is often not your own; it’s influenced by beings inhabiting your space.
Our clairvoyant programs delve into exploring these diverse energies and entities residing within different individuals. We provide tools to disentangle and clear such energies, allowing you to embrace your authentic self and tap into your innate creative potential. Our mission is to guide you towards natural and unhindered creation.
In the Your Next Step program, (A space for graduates of the Clairvoyant Program) we learned to heal our body on the DNA level.
It was an amazing healing, which I incorporate into my routine meditations. I use my psychic surgeon (This is a healing guide that students learn how to work with in a beginning class called “Healing II '') to remove energy from my space that is not mine. I noticed a scar from my previous surgery became much smaller and faint in color after a few weeks of energy work. It was a great validation seeing the changes on my physical body.
Graduate of CV program, Sunny
One of my favorite things about the Clairvoyant program has been the healing work we do on ourselves and each other.
Although some of us have graduated out of the CV program, we make time to stay on top of our energy work on a weekly basis. We share healing requests as they come up from our friends and family, and we love to get updates on how it positively impacts our communities. If you have ever questioned if it is real or not… try a class and see for yourself. Our lives have changed forever and we are deeply grateful for the tools we’ve learned, use & share.

In the middle of 2022, I received a notification that there will be extra $10,000 in property tax next year!
I made a mock-up that I would get extra income to cover it. One day, I was contacted by an HR recruiter from a Tech company for an interview. The opening matched perfectly with my expertise and I got the job offer very quickly. The new job provides me with a better working environment and the extra income for the increased property tax. A lesson learned was to enjoy what I am creating for myself and have fun experiencing it.
Your Next Step Program Student, Sunny
Toward the end of my clairvoyant program in Dec. 2022, I wished to plan an adventure on my own in Argentina during Christmas.
However, I needed a visitor VISA and I did not have enough time. I gave up - thinking maybe this is not the right time next. I was not sure if I could travel by myself anyway. In the last few Tuesday evening 2 Hour Aura Readings, I saw a picture in the readee’s 4th chakra, in which she was staring at the mountain that she desired to hike on, but all the males in her space/life told her that "It's too much - Don't do that." After the reading, I immediately booked my flight tickets, Airbnb and rental car in Kona, Hawaii for my Christmas trip. There were many amazing things that happened during my Clairvoyant program and this is just one of them - I saw the matching pictures of others' holding me in place. It gave me the motivation to step outside all those pictures that are not me and send myself to my first trip on my own. I had a blast and my life was never the same.
It was early morning before work and I needed gas. I was feeling rather grounded and clear headed so, I decided to go over the day’s agenda with my Healing Master.
My Healing Masters shows me its valence being Native American. I pull up to a pump and park. I began discussing tasks that he could help me with. The connection felt distant, as though we were talking on distant mountains. I began trying to talk louder but it felt more like we were talking into those old phone cups, skipping the part where you take turns to listen. I began to feel frustrated. In my impatience, I said, “Get down here right now.” The next moment a truck rolled up pulling a U-Haul. On the side of the U-Haul was a large picture of a Native American. I stood there stunned a bit, wondering if a sign could be that obvious. I could at least hear him now, and we were good.

But they had long-since stopped: I had not had one in decades. Now I was having these headaches again. Not too severe, but unpleasant, uncomfortable and certainly a distraction from getting anything done.
I had never known what triggered them, nor ended them, so long ago. I had been meditating for about 10 years of that point, but none of the tools I had available seemed to control the headaches. Not meditation, diet, exercise or breathing. Now I was once again looking for relief.
I have been teaching meditation for 35 years, and practicing as an aura reader for even longer. I had a date scheduled to exchange readings with my colleagues at CCSG. It occurred to me to ask them what they saw connected to my migraines. They told me about some silver energy in my head. Once they pointed it out, I could see it too. I found I was able to move the energy. I had accomplished a spiritual healing. I wondered if it would have physical effects: could it relieve my headaches?
In a couple of months since that reading and healing I have experienced a few very mild headaches, which might have been the onset of more severe ones in the past. But I focused my attention on clearing the silver energy out of my head and being present myself. So far I have not had any strong headaches since that day.
In 44 years of meditation practice, and during thousands of aura readings, I have experienced several miracles and witnessed even more. But I didn't really expect to be able to cure my own headaches. With a little expert clairvoyant feedback, I was able to find and move energy that I knew didn’t belong in my head. I believe we are all spiritual beings inhabiting physical bodies, and that if we give our bodies the right energy they will give us health and wellness. I have no medical training, but I do believe, that with a little spiritual guidance, I cured my headaches.

When I first learned about manifesting in Tap into Your True Self, I pondered for days to come up with something I wanted.
Each time an idea came to mind I realized it was actually for someone else! That’s when I knew I wanted to take the Women’s Intuition class and learn to understand my own creative energy better. Now my own desires are rising up to the surface much more easily and big changes have been manifesting in response to that. Just months ago the idea of moving out of the city for a quiet place in the country was a buried dream that felt as remote as winning the lottery, and here I am doing just that. Taking these classes has been empowering and so much fun. Before, I would always go with the flow, conform, and brace for what’s coming next. Now I feel better equipped to direct my own path because I see myself more clearly.

Being free of physical pain is on top of my wishlist.
For years I struggled with a very deep unique pain where the skull meets the right side of the cervical spine. It's different from the pain from using our phone or computer too much, or bad posture. I thought it's from the herniated cervical discs pressing on my nerves shown on MRI. I have spent a fortune on all kinds of treatments and finding more and more experienced doctors over the years. Chiropractic therapy, physical therapy, trigger point therapy, endless stretching and massage, heavy doses of curcumin, various injections including epidural steroid injection. None of it worked. It has taken too much time of my life and yet I try to accept it as something for the rest of my life.
In the third class of Healing I, we are encouraged to create mock-ups for what we want. The examples are small things, but all the small things are easy to come and being free of this deep knotted mysterious pain really is a big desire. I creatively create an energy-flowing pain-free happy body picture. Hand the picture over to my healing master and forget about it. The next day I connect to my healing master to practice healing on myself. My hands are guided to go over some specific areas of my neck, jaw, head and heart chakra. I feel relief in the neck and head, self-forgiveness in the heart. The mock-up is not on my mind. Within just a day or two, that deep pain spot is gone. GONE. I turn my head in all angles and directions and press trying to find it. I cannot believe it. It really is gone. All that is left is the shallow soreness pain from bad posture. I am in utter awe.
Perhaps this physical pain is not from a physical cause? I created what I thought was a difficult-to-achieve mock-up, and it became reality so quickly. No traditional or modern therapy I've tried could cure it. The spiritual tool I literally just learned cured it. It is a miracle. I thank my healing master and tell him he's a miracle repeatedly. I joined Healing I for spiritual healing. Now I am ecstatic and beyond thankful for the bonus miracle of physical healing.
"Hello my name is Tammee and I’m an addict." It's true! I'm addicted to my own energy as the worst addict could be. I’ve been in the Clairvoyant program for 3 months now. I can honestly say I’ve enjoyed every step of it. I didn’t always feel this way. In fact, it took over a month from my interview date to my start date. My first month I had so much fear, anxiety, and self-doubt. So much inner monologue “What are you doing?” “It’s just your imagination! It’s not real!” “This is fake, you’re making this up.” Blah blah blah blah blah. Too many beings invading my space. It’s true, “Once you pop you can’t stop!” Once you start blowing up roses (pictures), you simply can’t stop. *pop*pop*pop*pop*pop* Don't get me wrong, life is not perfect, once you start clearing up your space and vibrating higher, the more you become a magnet to the psychic vampires, naysayers, etc. So, "Ground, find your own space and run your own energy" as Judith constantly reminds us. Consistency is key!
Clearing up my personal space has allowed me to be fully confident with what I am seeing, reading, and hearing my inner voice. Not just getting clarity on any situation that arises for me but, the reading(pictures) come in so much quicker. The struggle now has been for words to catch up to my visions(all in its 4k UHD glory) and to fully articulate it. It’s also comforting when my readings are validated, not in the egocentric sense but, it boosts my energetic vibration and happiness. Speaking of happiness, we read a fellow student once, prior to starting the reading we meditated and created a mockup. She joined the meditation but didn't want to sway the readers by sharing her mockup with us. Fast forward to reading her 'next step'. The word “Happyness” was obnoxiously making itself known to me. I shared the info that Happiness was showing up but spelled with a “Y” like the movie ‘Pursuit of Happyness’. Turns out her mockup was finding her happiness. It’s gratifying to be able to help others seek answers. I was once in that position. Joining the clairvoyant program has/is training me to look, seek the voice of my higher self, with the guidance of the God of my Heart!
I've met amazing women and will be meeting more within the community. We've shared similar stories and it's amazing that we are able to share our journey in a safe, judgement free space. I’m looking forward to what this journey has in store for me.

I decided, soon after taking the "Tap Into Your True Self" class, that I will continue my spiritual journey.
Each session has taught me a tool (or two) on how to heal myself and others on a spiritual level. I’ve been fortunate enough to have met people that are in a similar place in their life. My particular class has been meeting out of class to exchange healings. It’s one thing being in class and learning tools, it’s another experience to practice on our own. Each healing session (in and out of class) has been different, each session has surprised me. There is one particular out of class session I had with a classmate that I remember so vividly. As I was healing her Aura around her 5th Chakra, I had this strong vision of white beings running away from me. They felt like female energy in their 20s that were just having a party in her Aura. I contemplated whether to join the party with them or clear them out of her space. Well, they were eventually blasted off. Later on, healing her 5th chakra, I sensed a black being hiding behind her neck on her left side. This being is not dark nor was it a negative energy. It was just dodging me while I was trying to blast them off. It was like playing laser tag with a being. After our healing session, we usually give each other feedback. She validated that there was another healer that sensed this being in the same place.
I had another experience of healing a relative. She has been having sciatic nerve pain for a week now. I finally was able to give her a healing. After the session we exchanged feedback and she was brought to tears. She felt me so strongly in her presence, despite the fact that we lived in different states. She didn’t watch me while I was performing healing and yet she felt me working and grounding her pain on her leg. She had told me, before the healing, her pain level was 9.5-10 and it had dissipated and was at 1-1.5 level. I didn’t completely heal her but she is more comfortable now than she was last week. If this is my calling, to help heal, then so be it.
Now, about my Healing Master… the first time he connected to my hand chakra, I had such mixed emotions. For one, I felt so overwhelmed like I was about to explode. It was such an intense feeling that it did scare me a bit and I could not wait to disconnect. Judith later advised me to just communicate with him and ask him to turn it down. Working with him now has been effortless, now that I know what to expect and communicating with him has been easier. There have been times when I would ask him to “pump up the volume!”
It feels so liberating to find a community that I can discuss my experiences with this journey so openly. After ending each class I often feel I need to learn more. Needless to say, I will be taking additional classes and continue progressing in my spiritual path. These classes have definitely helped raise my vibration. Whoever thought being so high can be so addictive? On to the next…
Here’s a story about a lady, who was tired of dealing with $h!tty energy.
I’ve participated in group healings at another school, I’ve had reiki healing, and did my own practice of grounding and cord cutting. After a few years of contemplating whether to take classes or not, I finally took a leap of faith. I was tired of people in my life draining me of my energy. Psychic vampires are real, they walk amongst us in daylight. They eat garlic and love to lay out in the sun! Although they don’t shimmer in the sunlight(what a disappointment). Alas, enough was enough for me! I had to set boundaries and protect myself. I also needed a stronger way to cut cords and clear blockages. This class is just a stepping stone but has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in 2021. I’ve always known there was something more to life. Challenge is undoing the conditioning I grew up with and relearning things that came naturally as a child. Finding my voice, my true self, being a “free bird.” Cue in Lynyrd Skynyrd.
