Rising of The Phoenix – Part Two

Rising of the Phoenix:


Part Two
**  read Part One Here


Although clients still tell me they love my style, and would like to see more of me, and I am still busy doing readings, although much less during the past five years, I decided instead to pull my energy inward.

I turned down all interviews….all requests for radio, TV, or live appearances.

Amongst the most stressful time of my life over the past five years, somewhere along the line, I fell in love and married a wonderful man who continues to love and support me, my family, and my career. Without any public announcements to anyone, my three daughters and I packed up and moved to British Columbia where I worked on healing my soul by throwing myself into the gorgeous mountains and country air. On a rare occasion (well ok most days), you might have seen a posted picture of me in my rubber boots, no make-up on, and no hair done perfectly as you see in my professional glamorous photo shots.

But what you will see is the shadow of my smile coming back while I take in the fresh air, stunning scenery, while walking the dog or feeding our chickens.  

Many people were extremely surprised at my sudden and quiet disappearance. Then again, the ones who really know me know that I always did take risks.

This time, however – I was taking the risk to open up.  I still believe in fairy tales.  

People always say to me “Nothing’s ever gonna change!” or  “Oh God! I made another bad decision! I’m pregnant at age ___” or “I’m always choosing the wrong person (or job)!”

 I say to my clients, “YOU have that power to change your life! You just have to start somewhere.”

Although I do my best to remain modest and humble, I know I am strong. I am also deeply grateful to be blessed with a gift and wisdom that can help others during their own personal storms and life changes.

But there is nothing at all special or different about me, than you.

I grew up on welfare. I don’t come from money. I grew up in a small fishing community.  Emotions of depression, abuse, suicidal tendencies, bullying…..I’ve had A LOT of obstacles. I could’ve easily have been a drug addict or drank myself to death. I made so many mistakes….

I just don’t allow them to direct my life.

I will always have that sparkle in my eye, and a fighting fiery spirit inside that refuses to give up!  Although I may whine just a bit…ok a lot, but I will continue to be my diva self.

So how do we come back from Ground Zero, when your whole world as you know it has been shaken? When the ones you love are hurting or have passed on, leaving a gaping hole in your heart?

  • Set boundaries
  • Disregard those who steal your energy
  • Take a mental health day once in awhile
  • Pull your energy inward rather than spreading it too thin all around you
  • Spend time in Nature, around animals, and things that feed your soul
  • Get enough rest, fresh air, good food, exercise, and water
  • Be around those who make you laugh, and make you feel Loved
  • Pray to your angels, guides, and to Whom or Whatever is your Source
  • Be creative. Throw yourself into your art, music, writing, cooking, or whatever connects you to Spirit & your Soul
  • Have and set personal goals
  • Be honest with yourself
  • As for the passing of a loved one…I continue to live in the way they would want me to, even though I have my sad moments (and I allow myself to be sad), I don’t give myself permission to stay there.

I’ve had my rest. And, as usual – once again, I’m ready to give my best.

After a five year hiatus (mostly), 

This is my “somewhere”.

And, Wow! What a beautiful, powerful place to be.

Through the devastation, the darkness, the cold and hard times, I found my peace, my healing, my strength, and my way, deeper within than I even knew existed. I had reserves of that fiery Warrior we all have inside, and she is vibrant, fierce, and very much alive.

I feel intuitively NOW is the time! Keep your eyes and ears open, stalkers….


Like the Phoenix Rising from the Ashes….

Get Ready Because this Mystical Creature is Coming Back Stronger Than Ever Before!!

Rising of The Phoenix – Part One

Rising of The Phoenix:

Part One

“And once the storm is over,
you won’t remember how you made it through,
how you managed to survive.
You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over.
But one thing is certain.
When you come out of the storm,
you won’t be the same person who walked in.
That’s what this storm’s all about.”
 – Haruki Murakami


Approximately five years ago I went into hiding.  No I didn’t rob a bank, or worked uncover for some mob.  But personally, emotionally, spiritually I retreated within myself.  Without knowing it, all of us have a particular secret negative belief about ourselves that feels so devastating, it can take us down an unbearable dark hole of emotional pain.  My quest to understand my own emotional pain has taken me to places I had thought I already knew.  However, the universe has a way to teaching in different ways.  I choose to continue to use pain to further myself and my clientele and their life path. 

For years, I was told by clients that I was the “go-to” psychic medium and life coach for hundreds, if not more, of regular clients around the world, from Canada to the United States and as far as Australia and Spain. Some of my clients only looked to me for advice and guidance for the past fifteen years or more. They gladly paid the fee for my services whether the reading was in-person, via email, or telephone because they felt that what they received in return was priceless.

Many would tell me that my spiritual insight and wisdom would stay with them for years, and that they would look back on their recorded reading or notes as a reference, especially when facing the huge annoying obstacles and lessons that Life has a habit of throwing our way.

I can honestly say that I was at the top of my game, and I was on fire!

I have been featured in several television appearances, including Entertainment Tonight (Canada), and my story and career made the cover of several magazines including OMTimes and Soulwoman. There were talks of a book and television show about my past, my career, and my skills as a psychic medium. I required several personal assistants to handle my appointments with clients, my ongoing appearances on the radio, frequent live events across the prairies, and endless projects.

I was tireless and relentless for many, many years.

While managing my successful career, I somehow managed to raise three pre-teenage daughters (now ages 10, 12, and 18), and work on my marriage which was slowly falling apart.

Known for my down-to-earth and – so they tell me – sassy personality and sharp witty comebacks, I was sought after to the point where I had to finally just say “Enough.”

I needed rest.

It was time to turn off the spotlight for a while.

The inevitable divorce took a huge toll on me. Once married to a man I thought I knew, he totally blind-sided me before, during, and throughout, the marriage. I went in being true. He didn’t. The divorce didn’t devastate me.  The lack of respect, moral/values that I thought this person had the qualities of devastated me.  How could someone intentionally hurt another human being.  Lesson 121,000 – there are selfish people who only think of themselves no matter the cost.

To add to the already huge stress load, my mother passed away March 2017, my biological father passed in April 2017 and my brother’s health continues to be an issue.

Although I have been told that I am the epitome of strength with incredible control over even the most crippling emotions, for the first time ever in my life, I finally had to admit I needed to just stop everything. Normally always there for others, always being strong and giving, everyone’s eternal Decision-Maker, I had very little choice other than to emotionally withdraw.

While my mind was still strong and fierce, my body and soul were begging me to stop.

I care what others say. I have an ego! I’ll admit it. We all do.

I care a lot for others too — but I care for myself, my well-being, and my family a lot more.

It’s hard to save others when you yourself and your family is drowning.

I, Barb Mather (formerly Powell) — the one many called Queen of All Psychics — made the decision to step down…..


(…to be continued in Part Two)


Can you relate?
What are you ongoing goals?
Do you currently have obstacles?
How do you deal with emotional pain?
Have you ever been deceived?
