Soul Reader Bio:

I am a professional soul reader. Through one-on-one soul readings, classes and online resources, I help soul-seekers uncover their gifts and talents in connection with their spirit guides, ancestors, and the planetary cycles. My background in the arts infuses my readings and encourages my clients to live the life of their dreams. You can find me online at Kathy Crabbe, in my LuLu Design Shop, or at my blogs Soul Reader and Art Mystic.
