Picture of Karen M Winkelman and the words 12 things about meI’ve been guided to share 10 things about me that you may not know.

Since I have a tendency to over deliver, here are 12!

This came about after being triggered - a tad - by my premature 50th High School reunion looming on the horizon. You can read about that trip down memory lane here.

While in the shower (great place for conversations with Spirit, btw), I pondered the reunion elephant in the room.

I did not relish the idea of seeing former classmates and knowing I didn’t really know them any more than they knew me.

I’m more transparent now, having blasted out of the metaphysical closet years ago. And that Genie ain't going back in the bottle!

Still, there are some things I only shared with a select few. And none of those people were from High School.  

Spirit said “it’s time to share some things about you that very few people know.”


I agreed.

It was important for a number of reasons, including empowering others who might hide their difference or be afraid of owning their unusual gifts. Maintaining masks and trying to blend in are exhausting! Been there, done that, and am done with it!

In case you were wondering, Spirit was quite clear which 10 things to share with y’all!

10 12 Things About Me

  1. I see and sense dead people and can communicate with them (yeah, I’ve been a medium since I landed on this blue marble)

  2. I sense and see energy, and can read it when I tune in

  3. A children’s activity video I co-wrote won a Parent’s Choice Award

  4. I love science as much as the arts

  5. As a child, I hated going to bed because my room would fill up with the faces of strange people when I would go to bed at night. It was terrifying. As a young kid I didn’t understand they were dead and trying to communicate to anyone who could see them. Eventually I learned how to send them away.

  6. In my teens I’d lay out on the grass at night longingly looking at the stars. I’d often ask the stars to take me home.

  7. Yes, I’ve seen a number of UFOs and had a couple of unexplainable encounters throughout my life.

  8. As a teen I would hang out at a very old graveyard, either alone or with a couple of friends. I found it very peaceful. Curiously, no dead people ever tried to contact me there! (Or in any cemetery.)

  9. I’m an introvert and empath and social gatherings exhaust me. (The exception: If I am performing on stage or speaking at an event, then I feel fueled, at least until I have to mingle with others!)

  10. In college I was tested for psychic ability with a deck of cards (shapes, not playing cards). I got them all wrong. Which was odd, as lucky guesses would account for a few correct answers. Then they looked at my list of answers and realized I was “seeing” the next card in the deck, not the card the person held. I have precognitive/clairvoyant ability. I could have told them that (wink).

  11. I was a finalist in the Director’s Guild of America Producer/Director Training Program.

  12. Short lived (and fun) career as a puppeteer and puppet maker… and applying the creative use of puppets as grade school teaching aids.
