Wow, you really advised me well during the selling of my house.
You had given me some dates, and I got it on the market during that time, and you kept telling me not to worry.
Well, a second home in my neighborhood came up a day after we started escrow, and they sold that home for $30K below asking price. We got $40K over asking price. They went on the market a few days after we did.
All I can say is WOW.
Love & Marriage
“I live in Cornwall, England now! The last time you did a reading for me (March of 2009) you saw a big move written all over my stars. You were right! You and I talked about NY, but apparently it was even further east … all the way to England. I reconnected with an old boyfriend, the romance started again and because he has a son, I moved here in April of last year (which coincided with the end of this move era that you saw). We got married in August. It’s been a total whirlwind. Which was another thing that you saw, the right guy, it progresses so quickly that everyone is a bit shocked, but ‘If you knew how many lifetimes you two shared, its really no big deal.’ And that is pretty much how its felt. Its just so right and effortless, there’s no second guessing-despite a complete blind leap into this new life of mine. I sold my acupuncture practice, I don’t model any more; its too far to travel. Its so nice for me to update you. Your readings have been great for me, little beacons of hope when I felt pretty blue … and I’m glad to let you know how right on you were.” Jill Lytle Cornwall, England
DAVID’S AND LINDA’S SOUL MATE TESTIMONIAL Linda: Five years ago I was crazy in love with this Italian man. According to my chart, you said that he was not the right guy for me. Everything happened when you said it would and he turned out to be who you said he was.
You told me that in 2004 I would meet someone very spiritual who would love me more than anybody could ever love me, and, of course, I did not think that was possible and I was bummed that it was four years away. Just recently, I came across the tape from my reading and listened to it and I had to let David listen to it. We had come together in 2004. And all the things that you said about me were all the things that I had told him about me and were all the things that he had told me about me because David has some uncanny psychic ability that he just knows about you before he meets you or before he knows you very well.
The story we wanted to tell you is his story about what happened when he actually got in a car accident and died.
Stephanie (looking down at his chart): Oh, it happened when you were 43. David: I was driving home, very depressed. I was feeding my soon-to-be ex-mother-in-law in a convalescent home. She was insane so she was medicated. She could not feed herself, so I had to go there and feed her.
Coming home, a guy turned left in front of me and hit me. My van rolled twice and then I knew I did not get hurt. I was looking at myself and thinking, ‘Oh, wow, I am not hurt. This is pretty cool.’ Then I realized there was blood, but I was still thinking it is not so bad. Then I hear people screaming and I can see the blood on my head. Then I realize something is wrong because I should not be able to see my head.
Stephanie: So you were looking down?
David: How could I see me? I am looking through the side of my van. My right arm was crushed. That is why there is no feeling in these two fingers. I see my body. I see myself bleeding, but I have no pain. Now all this time I have been a very religious person. I really believe in God and I believe in spiritual things. So I just said, ‘Somebody pray for me. Somebody pray.’
This very beautiful apparition came and said, ‘Thank you God. It is not his time.’ That was the prayer. What I saw was this dark-haired, beautiful woman that was dressed like a gypsy with beautiful skin. I will never forget that look as long as I live. I thought it was kind of a weird prayer, but ‘thank you.’
Once she said, ‘Thank you God, it is not his time,’ I actually started vomiting and felt the blood and I realized that I was back in my body. By this time, the paramedics were there working on my chest. I had really died for three minutes. They put me in an ambulance. They did the chest thing. I remember waking up in the hospital. Then I remember waking up on my couch and the time frame was gone. I just remember telling people that I obviously survived and was resuscitated.
But then for about three months I did not know where I was because it was just craziness. I kept talking about this beautiful woman who prayed so that I could go back in. I asked other people, ‘Who was it?’ Nobody knew of course who this person was. One lady said, ‘Thank you Jesus. Pray you heal this man.’ She was not the lady that I saw though, but she did say ‘pray.’ No, the lady that I saw had a gypsy look. She had beautiful flowing, dark, curly hair and beautiful skin. I can not say any more than that. Nobody else saw her.
A month later I had gone through about fifty singers in my swing band. You have to a have a beautiful woman in front of the band. Anyhow, a month later she comes in. I do not remember all of the details.
Linda: The audition.
David: I was not looking for her. I was looking for a keyboard player. When she came in my jaw dropped.
Linda: I brought the keyboard player.
David: She brought the keyboard player.
Linda: It was my boyfriend.
David: Her boyfriend at the time. And while I am auditioning him, I am looking at her and all I could think was, ‘My God, she looks exactly, exactly, how I would describe what the lady in my vision looked like.
Linda: My hair is actually curly.
David: Bohemian is the word. And I was without words.
Linda: And I saw him and instantly fell in love.
David: I remember saying, ‘Hey you guys ready to play?’ And I just did not even know, but as soon as she left I did not know what to say because I could not even remember how she sounded.
Linda: He thought I was married.
David: Yeah, that’s what I figured. I thought she was married to that guy, so I was not really going to tell her about my vision, but my God! I swear to God she is the woman I was searching for. So she leaves. I ask the trumpet player, ‘What was her name?’
Trumpet Player: ‘Linda.’
David: ‘Write everything in her key.’
Trumpet Player: ‘What? Really?’
David: ‘Make as many songs as you can for her.’ I did not want to share my thoughts. I had to wait for the right time because people do not understand. I did not want him to think that I was nuts.
Plus, I had had problems in my marriage for about ten years … longer than that really. It was ending and I finally connected with Linda. I told her that I had to share something with her. I told her that I believed we are soul mates. I told her that I knew her from the experience.
The accident happened within half a block of the church that she got married in.
Linda: Yes, it happened right in front of the church I had gotten married in.
David: Of all the places in the world! And her marriage certainly did not work.
Linda: Thirty years ago.
David: I told her, ‘I know things about you.’ And Stephanie, I had not listened to your tape. I told her, ‘I know what you want out of life.’ She said, ‘How can you know these things?’
I told her, ‘I just know. I know that you are very deep spiritually. I know you are looking for someone who knows a lot more and I can help you with that. I just know about what floats your boat. I can tell you your favorite movie.’ And she said ‘try me.’ So I told her, ‘Arthur.’
Linda: That is my favorite movie.
David: I did not know anyone that knew her. I just knew these things. I also told her that I knew about the situation she was in. I said, ‘If this guy is what you want, then I want to be in your wedding, because my happiness is your happiness.’ It was that simple. When you are devoted to somebody, you do not care about yourself. And she said, ‘I am not happy in it.’ And I said, ‘I know.’
There are so many things I just know. Her back is out. It is on her left-hand side. I know it is anxiety, nerves.
Linda: And she showed me his scar. There is this scar on his back exactly where my back had been bothering me for six months. It is unlike anything that I have ever experienced.
David: And you will not believe this. Well, you will because you said it. You said, ‘In October 2004, you will meet. You will know the love of your life.’ We have it on film.
Linda: Yeah, we were filming that day.
David: They were filming it for a special for my drum clinic. And the ironic thing, when you look at it, you see me drumming and you see her face in the audience, and it is right there.
Linda: Oh, I was on stage because we did a performance, but I was sitting off to the side watching him and I did not know how we were connected. I just loved him.
David: We were in the band together. That day she was rubbing my arm, and I felt all this energy from her. I wanted to tell her, ‘I know so much about you, Linda.’ It was not the right time that day, but that was that day. It happened in October as you said it would. It is a movie.
Linda: We should make a movie.
David: So look up 1:00 PM, June 2nd, 2003, Orange. You said Linda would marry or would find someone who is quite a bit younger than her.
Linda: Nine years.
David: And there is a little over eight years between us. And you said he would be very spiritual, which people say I am. And also that he would be involved with the entertainment industry. Obviously, I am. You said she would come into a lot of money. And then the last thing you said was, ‘he will be one hell of a dancer.’ I am not a dancer.
Linda: But we have been trying.
David: We are going to achieve that goal.
Stephanie: I said that because of the strength of Neptune, which rules music.
Linda: He can pass.
Stephanie: It was really the combination of Mars and Neptune, which is about strong rhythm. You obviously have an innate sense of rhythm as a drummer.
Linda: He has great rhythm.
Stephanie: So getting back to this day. Here is where Saturn was at when the accident happened: 22 degrees Gemini. Here is where Saturn was when you were born. Saturn rules your physical reality and your place on the Earth. See how they were exactly opposite? Gemini rules cars and vans. Mars was also involved, which caused the accident. The top of the chart is where you allowed yourself to be sacrificed. Maybe you were sacrificing yourself as a caregiver. You were at a turning point of either staying and doing your life purpose or checking out.
David: You know what? I was ready to check out. I told Linda that.
Linda: He wanted to.
Stephanie: Saturn rules depression as well a loss of self.
David: I did not want to be in my situation. I was coming and feeding my mother-in-law in a convalescent home to be with my wife, my ex. I was depressed. I did not want my life. I did not even care about music anymore
Stephanie: This was your big wake-up call.
Stephanie: And here it is in her chart all happening at 22 degrees Leo. I know you do not know this part, but it is in the area of the chart where someone you do not know, a stranger that you are connected to through the heart, through Leo, intervenes. She can do that because it is happening on a 22 degree level. It is in her fifth house of Higher Self at 22 degrees Leo which is a very high frequency. So you both were hugely impacted by 22 degrees, which in astrology is a master vibration. You both have the alien constructs. You have this ability to rise above it and connect to bigger rounds of truth beyond this dimension. So, because you both have that ability, that is how you connected to each other. You called her in when you said ‘Somebody say a prayer for me.’ And because she is the teller of truth, it was a weird prayer. All she did was tell the truth.
David: Goosebumps on my bad arm.
David: It is true. We do vibrate at a higher frequency. Wherever we go, we light up the room. People invite us to parties just for us to show up.
Stephanie: That is it.
David: Well, it is more than that. Bottom line on that tape is what Stephanie said is true about me, providing I am that.
Stephanie: You are the one.
David: The soul mate.
Stephanie: You are that guy.
David: Well, I love this woman.”

“I did not know a lot about numerology until I met Jamie Birch. She gave me a numerology reading and I was amazed how accurate it was and so relevant it was to my life. I continue to consult with her and am impressed how everything seems to be right on with what is going on in my life. Having issues? Give her a call, you won’t be disappointed!”
Deb Richardson (Rose)
“Having been a follower of astrology and numerology for the last twenty years, I’ve come across many practitioners of both skills, but none of them have come close to the level of skill and intuition and wisdom and healing power as Jamie’s numerological readings. I consult with her regularly for advice based on my numbers and astrological influences and I find her insights to be quite accurate and very helpful in navigating these challenging times. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
Bradley Rand Smith
Award-winning playwright and screenwriter
“”Two years ago I had a session with you that changed my life! Literally! After an astrology reading with you, I quit my job with my boss of 19 years and took what I call, The Cosmic Nestea Plunge. I had no idea what I would do, but everything worked out really well. It was the best decision I ever made and I made that with your insightful reading. Thank you so much!
“Only six months ago yet another portion of the reading came to pass. I met a man who is very much like the one you described in my reading. You described him down to the smallest details. He is a writer and genius (papers and all) and he loves me like there is no tomorrow.
“There was a lot of traveling this year, as you saw in the reading, partly because he lived in Sacramento, and party because I travelled two different countries and Hawaii this year:
“I have engaged the services of approximately twenty astrologers over the years, none of whom have even come close to the skill, intuition, and accuracy that surrounds Stephanie’s work. Her unique interpretation of astrology has helped me solve many life situations and allowed me to move forward and grow from my experiences.”

“Well, you were so incredibly right about this weekend! I couldn’t believe how incredible it was. I’m still on cloud 9! I was the leading rider out of 84 horses all three nights with the highest scores I’ve ever received and did win the whole finals. Today I ended up show champion. Thank you so much!” (As predicted in her reading the day before.)
Courtney Cochran, Horse Show Woman

“I’m not really a skeptic. I’ve had a strange and unpredictable time on this planet, but when you mentioned that TV was all over my chart, I had to laugh. TV was the farthest thing from my mind. Once home from my reading, and not quite two hours later, I got a call from my former publicist to send an email to a TV producer about my healing arts work. I giggled. Two days later I was booked to appear on the show, Starting Over on NBC, as an expert! The TV ball is definitely rolling. Thanks to you, I saw it coming! I think the laugh’s on me! I’ve told all my friends about your talents.”
Janet Bernson, The Healing Artist
Sherman Oaks, California
“I played along with your curiosity about my birth date and birthplace. I was skeptical about astrology. I was shocked at all you knew about me, my parents, my past, my present, and yes, my future!
“On one occasion, because I was hesitant to fly, I consulted you regarding the safety of an upcoming trip. You told me not only would I have a safe journey, but that I would meet a man on the Wednesday of my trip. I didn’t think of this again until that Wednesday, in Maui, when I did meet a most interesting man, who remains a very good friend of mine.
“Another time, when you were checking my chart, you asked me whether I had a headache. I did, but I didn’t want it to interfere with our session and hadn’t mentioned it. You asked whether I had had it since noon the day before and indeed I had. I was amazed at how this much personal information was in my chart.”
Christina Howard, Work-out Wear Manufacturer
West Hills, California
“Stephanie has been my astrologer for nearly twenty years. I had used other astrologers in the past, but none were even close to as accurate. I consult with her on a regular, bimonthly basis.
“In addition to the obvious knowledge she has acquired through her in-depth study of astrology, her readings are always done in an empowering and supportive way. she has advised me on finance, business, travel, health, and other personal issues — on specific relationships, new people that I meet both professionally and personally — and about times to plan or avoid particular activities.
“Her well-developed intuitive skills and guidance have assisted me in making decisions that have made a difference in the approach I take to different aspects of my life. I appreciate her honesty and frankness in showing me what options are available to me by using my chart as a tool for my development and growth.”

“You mentioned that my ex-husband had an issue with his mother that started at the age of seven … and that he had to tell understand that he was not responsible for it. I told you that it was probably his father’s death. Well, I found out that at the age of seven, he found his mother lying in bed after having swallowed a whole bottle of Valium. She told him that he was the cause of her disgrace … that she never meant to have him and that he had screwed up her life. So accurate!
“Another one: remember that I told you about this fashion designer, a Brazilian guy that I had met? And remember that you told me that in April 2006 I would dramatically change my way of dressing, and that you even saw me with snakes in my hair? Well, he is graduating in April 2006 and he has just trademarked his brand name, ‘Medusa.’ Scary, right?
“I wanted to tell you, ‘Hell woman, you are good!!”

“I adopted Emma, my dog, from a rescue. She had been terribly abused. As a result, other than the deep bond that Emma has with me, she is extremely fearful of all other people. Through an unfortunate chain of events, Emma got lost in the Santa Monica Mountains It was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I knew that she would never be found by any other human but me, because she would hide from anyone else. I called Stephanie for astrological help and she saw that Emma was still alive, that she had no major injuries, she did have an injured paw, she was thirsty and hungry, and very lost.
“Stephanie reassured me that I would have her back home in eight days. Stephanie also said that one of my other dogs would help me find Emma. Six hours short of eight days, I found Emma exactly as Stephanie had described, right down to her injured paw. Stephanie helped me find the strength and hope, which was absolutely everything I needed to search for my beloved animal. Thank you, with all my heart Stephanie Jourdan.”

“The most comprehensive and practical course that I have ever taken. Stephanie Jourdan imparts an unsurpassed clarity and depth of the subject matter, coupled with a marvelously supportive teaching style. The material is a must for therapists.”
Gabrielle Numair, M.A., C.Ht., Fort Collins, Colorado
“Without question, Stephanie Jourdan has been and continues to be the best teacher that I have ever had in all areas of hypnotherapy from basic hypnosis to archetypal work in self-promotion. Her ability to communicate clearly and impart vital information is extraordinary. After attending numerous other hypnotherapy forums, I am always amazed by how much I have learned from her courses and workshops.”
Janeen Weiss, J.D., C.Ht., radio personality, Chicago, Illinois
“Of course I loved the classes at the time I attended … they’re fun … but now, looking back over the recent years, I realize the impact of this knowledge. It changed my life … not just my career as a counselor, but my sense of confidence and inner peace as a person. It just hadn’t occurred to me that studying behavior modification was going to change me.”
Renata Frommert, B.A., C.Ht., East Hampton, New York
“I was struggling a bit as a hypnotherapist. I had heard about other hypnotherapists helping people with pain management, but I didn’t know how to break in to that area of my field. then a friend told me about these courses in medical hypnotherapy. I ordered the first the glove and stocking anesthesia one, and made a tape up for myself to see if it worked, and it did! I finished the workbook and ordered everything else they had, read all of it, practiced until I had the techniques down, and then followed the directions in the provider relations course for finding and working with doctors. and now pain management is what I do. my work feels very rewarding. I highly recommend these courses.”
Alicia Berker, C.M.Ht., Los Angeles, California
“In the material is says to call a prospective physician and ask whether you can refer people to him and that the doctor’s admin. will sometimes go and get the doctor. That is exactly what happened to me.
“I got the name of a doctor that I knew was completely open to alternative healing by calling the hospital administrator in my area. When I called the doctor’s office and spoke to the admin., I explained that I was a medical hypnotherapist and what I was looking for. She said, ‘just a moment,’ and got the doctor. We spoke for a while. At first he wanted me to mail him my C.V., but after further discussion, he asked me to come in and meet him, which I did. I was so excited. It was just like in the training.
“Your preparation in the book regarding forms and insurance carriers was also very helpful. I had everything but the S.O.A.P. forms redone with my letterhead. Listening to the tapes and following along in the book was also very helpful. It helps the mind keep on track.
“I am very encouraged that I now have the tools to begin marketing myself in ways that will help me get the kinds of clients that I am looking for. It is important to have referral M.D.’s for my specialty of pain management.”

“The first time I took my written exams (LCSW), I was completely anxious. I could not focus nor comprehend the case scenario and I felt inept. I couldn’t pull it together. in my hypnosis session, we planned how I wanted to experience my exams from start to finish and that’s how they actually went. I felt confident and clear with absolutely no anxiety whatsoever. It was a surreal experience. I was present, yet removed. I traced the case scenario on the computer screen with my finger and then my finger automatically knew what answer to click as my hand touched the mouse. It was magical. I was floating. At the end of the exam, when I saw that I had passed, my knees were weak. I couldn’t stand as I was so elated and relieved.”

“Dr. Jourdan has been a presenter for the annual convention of the American Board of Hypnotherapy (ABH) for the past seven years. Because of the consistent popularity of her workshops and seminars, Stephanie is a perennial repeat at our event. She has a unique ability to convey her material to the audience in a way that engenders enthusiasm and satisfaction. The evaluation forms that our participants turn in for Stephanie consistently rate her topics, content and presentation style Excellent. She is professional, dependable and well-prepared, and her information is always useful and up-to-date. I can speak for the entire staff of the ABH in saying that she is a real asset.”

“Without a doubt, Stephanie has surprised and enlightened me on so many levels. Her ability to find my perfect home and my school for my daughter through our charts was amazing to me. I did not know where I would be living or where my daughter would be going to school. Stephanie was able to describe exactly what to look for and where. When we did, the signs were all there. It is always a pleasure and a comfort to visit with her. It is good to know that she is there for guidance and reassurance in so many facets of my life on my life journey.”
Jennifer Schwartz, Spa Goddess, Travel Agent

“Sessions with you take astrology to places I never imagined I could go. It’s your breadth of knowledge and your passion that combine to find things in my chart that the others have not been able to see. You get things from astrology that I go, ?Oh My Gosh, you just get my life!? Stephanie, you do extreme astrology! You read these charts like you are reading a book. It is such an alive conversation. You see the connections and make the connections. I feel like when you do the readings, I am not getting any Stephanie stuff.”
Linda Oats, Motivational Speaker
“It was so great spending time with you. I can’t wait to see you again. I know my session was full and I look forward to delving in deeper. You’re a special, warm, magical and brilliant person.”

“Sometimes when you say stuff, I think that you are way out of the ballpark. I think to myself, Oh yeah, right Stephanie! Then, and sometimes it takes a year, the things you said were going to happen actually come to pass. It blows me away. That’s why I keep coming back for eighteen years.”
Sally Cozzetto, Translator
“Why do you always put things so succinctly and workable? I love it. Reclaiming one’s own power is what it’s all about. You certainly make that seem possible, and a reality.”

“About three weeks before the election on November 7th, I asked Stephanie to give me some idea of what would happen in terms of who would be our next president. She checked out the ruling planets for the day and told me that it looked like George Bush. She said that Uranus would rule the whole day and that there would be a constant back-and-forth about whether he or Al Gore would actually win; a flip-flopping of events. Where Uranus rules, she noted, there is always an unpredictable outcome.
“Before the election, the polls consistently showed that George W. Bush would be the overall winner and that he would be the winner of the popular vote. As we all know, the election is still not resolved because that very night – November 7th – we had consistent back-and-forth results from Florida and Al Gore was the winner of the popular vote, totally validating Stephanie’s accurate prediction and astrological reading.
“As has always been true in my experience, she uses her skills and talents to produce the most amazingly accurate readings!”
