Skaneateles Skaneateles is a destination known for many events and opportunities, and it’s fair to say that visiting a psychic is not one of them. Yet in town there is a professional “intuitive counselor” who offers tarot card readings, tarot numerology, chakra evaluation, spirit guide readings and spiritual counseling.
It’s a combination of spirituality, counseling and entertainment rolled into one, and it is doing a brisk and serious business.
“I provide insight into situations that people may not have; I also give confirmation for things people may already know, such as whether or not to get out of a relationship, for example,” said Cindy Griffith, who offers psychic services out of her Skaneateles home. “I never tell people what to do; that’s not my job. I provide insight. I try to empower people to help them to trust what they are already feeling.”
Griffith is an internationally known psychic with clients in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., London, Argentina and Australia. She and her psychic work have been featured on television, radio and in newsprint, and she and her husband hosted their own radio talk show, “Spiritual Simplicity,” on VoiceAmerica.com.
She also co-authored a recently-released book with her husband David, “Voyage of Purpose: Spiritual Wisdom from Near-Death Back to Life.”
Griffith holds a bachelor’s in spiritual counseling and healing, is a graduate of the three-year Metaphysical Teachers Training Program and a certified integral healing method facilitator. Her writings have been published in various publications, and she currently is writing her book “Meditation for Real People” and pursuing a master’s degree in consciousness development.
“Why do I do what I do … I find it is the best way that I have to be of service,” Griffith said. “When people come to a psychic they can take it in or treat it as light hearted. Either way they get to hear what they need to hear. But the seed is still planted.”
