Today we’d like to introduce you to Adrienne Stratton.
Hi Adrienne, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My story/ my life as an Intuitive and Medium started as a child approximately at age six. It was at six years old the very first time I saw a spirit in form. I immediately woke my parents who reassured me that it was “only a dream” and that there were no such things as ghosts or spirits. I remember feeling very different after that experience and worked hard to push it down deep inside of me. As the years went by and I found myself as a teenager, freer to think and feel for myself, I began exploring many things. The spirit world continued to reach out to me in subtle ways and my intuition began developing. I was finding it fascinating that sometimes I just knew things about people, places, and things but didn’t know how I knew. I also started a lifelong love for Astrology and Meditation. It was during that period of time that I read a lot on Eastern Philosophies that opened my mind beyond the status quo of organized Western religions. Fast forward to my late twenties/ early 30’s, when I was introduced to Masterful teachers that taught me about “Energy fields, Chakra’s, Astral Travel, Shapeshifting, and Spirit Guides. What I didn’t know at the time was that these would become my tools and more for my future work.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The hardest part for me actually was self-acceptance and gaining the deep confidence to move my practice forward. As an Intuitive helping people clear their energetic fields, teaching Meditation, and reading Auras was easy for me. I would also talk Astrology and help people find their rising signs and moon signs with ease, and this was something that I enjoyed early on, but Spirit wasn’t finished with me. It became necessary for me to learn how to read Tarot Cards and finally how to develop my Mediumship path.
Learning to use these particular skills was challenging but not hard. I never thought I couldn’t do it or shouldn’t do it. It just took time and experience to grow comfortable. My biggest hurdle was to trust and not rely on my previous training as a counselor. I had to go all in on my intuition and trust my own Spirit Guides to bring me the information that was needed to be helpful when working with others.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I have had a long working career in the service of others and attempting to make a positive impact on society. My career of over 30 years has been in Behavioral Health, the treatment field for Substance Abuse and Mental Health. I have been dedicated to helping others achieve Sobriety and helping families reunite. The treatment field has gone through many changes over the years (of which I could do another complete interview on), but for those who still have high ethics and professionalism, it is still a most worthy field to work in. I consider myself to be blessed to work for and know several people and treatment owners that fit the description. My Intuitive and Mediumship work is a private practice, in person or via Zoom, and I do corporate parties, Holistic Fair’s throughout Southern California. I love this work so much. It is so fulfilling to help others connect with their loved ones from the other side and gain deeper understanding of their spiritual life and how love never dies.
My work in the treatment field and my healing/helping work make me very proud and happy. I know that even on a small scale, I have had a positive impact on the lives of others. I don’t know if it sets me apart from others or not, but I don’t have ego in this work. It’s been my calling as directed by Spirit, and I am a servant. My life is filled with blessings and gratitude.
What are your plans for the future?
No big changes in store for the immediate future. I am always looking forward to new opportunities to share my story and expand my healing work. I can be found monthly at the OC Heart Space Holistic Faire in Laguna Woods and I have a few holiday/Halloween parties lined up that I am looking forward to do. I would also say that I do enjoy writing, and public speaking, so perhaps I will finally finish my autobiography and pursue more opportunities to share my story.
