"I am now choosing to think only thoughts which will bring me peace and align me to a higher consciousness.

Mystical Moments Remembered: Inspirational messages from Spirit with Love
Healing messages of love and light.

  Each of us has our own inner Team of ancestors, loved ones, guides, angels, and teachers who want to enfold us with love and aid us in remembering who we are and what we are here for.  Together we will connect and receive the guidance and wisdom that you need to help you on your path. 

Renee is a ministerial student with the Institute for Spiritual Development and a sanctioned ISD healer. Her mystical journey began after the passing of her husband and an ensuing spiritual rebirth.
She completed a spiritual mediumship mentorship program with Rev. Julie MacDonald and has completed several workshops through Lily Dale, NY with teachers like Rev. Judith Rochester  and Lisa Williams; but much of her education has come from intensive work directly with Spirit

Story Ducey

 Westford, NY

Darling Hill Farm

Offering: Evidential Mediumship

Offering: Evidential Mediumship Readings, Soulful Questions, and Soulful Insight.  Bring your Soulful Questions and receive Soulful Insights. My readings are focused on bringing forth strong evidence from Spirit to confirm, without a doubt, their identity and after life existence. We begin with asking you to hold your questions silently then allowing Spirit to respond. This is called a Spirit driven message. Whether you are seeking confirmation of life after death or seeking to give your loved ones in spirit a chance to clearly converse with you this method is powerful. We set up a link so you can communicate your love and receive their loving messages in return. Or a link is set up so you can address difficult ‘unfinished business.’ Spirit will know what you most need to hear and who you need to most hear from. My readings then ask for

insight into your earthly and spiritual gifts in order to encourage you to continue to unfold them in this lifetime.

Rebecca Brouillard- Current Student of ISD

Offering: Readings; Tarot card readings. 

 $10 donation to ISD


For many years I have had felt as if I was different.

I could see things others could not and I would experience things others would find odd. I have always felt out of place but I knew I wasn't the "crazy" person others have labeled me to be. I sought out for others of my kind to help learn about the things I felt and could do on an energetic level. I found the Institute for Spiritual Development and was thrilled to learn how many of my abilities had names I have never heard of, and gained an understanding that others have experienced similar occurrences. ISD quickly became my family and a judgement-free zone. I have been part of the Intuitive Practitioner's Program for a little over a year. My goal is to become certified so I can help teach and attempt to awaken and enlighten others as well as those who struggle with their supernatural occurrences. I would also like to help others who have deep sorrows and struggles by simply giving them what I get from the other side on a day to day basis. I want to help them move forward when they feel as if they are at a loss. Everyone deserves to be happy. I believe I can be the small change to help make the slight shift in one's life to hope for a brighter tomorrow.
