If the Spirit Moves You: Love and Life After Death by Justine Picardie
Traci Bray was born and raised in Clinton, Iowa. Early childhood memories revealed a definite sense that the soul continues to live beyond the physical death, as persons not living unveiled themselves to her. Although recognition of life beyond a physical existence was real for Traci, it wasn’t until the mid-1990's that she began offering public readings at the urging of friends. Via word-of-mouth, accolades of her skills widened her following to national proportions. Her clientele has expanded to all continents save the poles!
Traci's professional background and enhanced communications skills lend themselves to her readings. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Family Services and a Master's in Law Enforcement and Justice Administration. For over two decades prior to reading publicly she assisted individuals, families and systems toward change for improvement in the fields of domestic violence, sexual assault, corrections and public transportation. She served as a curriculum writer and trainer for two state-level law enforcement agencies in the Midwest. It is a natural that in addition to families, local, state and federal law enforcement agencies have requested and received her confidential input.
In 2000, Traci was filmed by the BBC for a documentary, produced by Justine Picardie, on mediums. That experience later materializes in Picardie’s book, If the Spirit Moves You: Love and Life Beyond Death. Additionally she appears in the book Truth About Medium, by Dr. Gary Schwartz, former Director of the University of Arizona’s coveted VERITAS program, where she served as a “Research Medium”. Other research mediums with VERITAS have included John Edward, George Anderson and Allison DuBois, the latter on whom the NBC series "Medium" is based. Key media pieces include:
Kansas City NBC affiliate KSHB produced a feature story on Traci's work;
Guest on "Kansas City Live";
Feature article in the "Kansas City Star" by Cindy Hoedel;
Numerous articles about her work have materialized in a number of newspapers and magazines across the Midwest including the "Kearney Press," "Kansas City Wellnes," and "Evolving."
Today Traci is a Level #5 Certified Research Medium with The Windbridge Institute (see http://windbridge.org) in Tucson, AZ under the direction of Dr. Julie Beischel, and is a Certified Medium with the Forever Family Foundation (see http://ForeverFamilyFoundation.org in Long Island, NY. Prior, she served as a Certified Research Medium with the VERITAS program under Dr. Gary Schwartz.
Traci is a relaxed, poised and entertaining public speaker and reader. A passion for writing finds her working on several projects from her historic home in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri.
Traci's readings come from Spirit in the 'spirit-of' personal enlightenment. To some recipients, they provide entertainment and certainly, enjoyment. Individuals are responsible for their interpretation of the reading as well as how or if they incorporate it into their own life via thought, word and deed.
