The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

About Ronda

          Crossroads Photography
 

Ronda is a psychic medium, taseographer & Reiki Master. She comes from a long line of psychics and healers, whose lineage comes from Ireland and Scotland, as well as having Cherokee roots in the Appalachian Mountains of southwest Virginia. Her first psychic experience was at age 11. Ronda has been communing with the dead since age 18. She began tea leaf reading at age 19. Ronda has also practiced mirror scying, table tipping, using dowsing rods, pendulums and spirit boards for over thirty years. Considering herself a spiritualist, these are the tools she is comfortable with being the tools used in the Victorian era. Ronda is an old soul and these gifts have come naturally to her being brought with her from her previous lives. During a past life regression session Ronda discovered that she is the reincarnation of a psychic named Ruby from the 1920s, who also read tea leaves. Tea leaf reading or taseography has become a dying art but Ronda is determined to revive it by conducting tea leaf readings at various events throughout the year, as well as giving distant readings. Reiki healing also came naturally to Ronda being an animal lover, vegan and having a close bond with nature. Holding dear to her that universal energy and knowledge that everything and everyone is connected makes Reiki healing and Veganism a mainstay in her life. She holds Reiki healing sessions by appointment, as wells as distant healing. She also teaches Reiki. Ronda is lead psychic medium with SRS Paranormal, a team of diverse and gifted paranormal investigators. Ronda's Appalachian culture and spiritual traditions and superstitions are an important part of her life. 

Ronda holds a PhD in Education. She is also a writer whose genres include paranormal romance, horror, mystery thrillers and children's fantasy. This is not the extent of her interests; Ronda also owns the small press publishing company, Full Moon Publishing, LLC. Full Moon specializes in unpublished authors and genres of paranormal, horror, mystery thriller, crime, fantasy and SciFi.

The haunted historic Nickerson Snead House in Glade Spring, VA is owned and operated as a museum by Ronda and her husband, Ricky. The mansion was part of a fort during the Revolutionary War and French & Indian. It was used as a field hospital during the Civil War. The mansion has a rich history and hauntings. Ronda holds many psychic readings at the mansion. She is surrounded by the paranormal so it's only natural that she would be so open to commune with the dead.
