We had the good fortune of connecting with Christopher Laprath and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christopher, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
I’d have to say the most important decision I made was to ask myself this question: What is it that I can contribute in this time and era to lead to the expansion of consciousness? The second decision I made was to acknowledge that there is more out there than just the material. I decided to focus on my contribution rather than what I may get in return.

What should our readers know about your business?
Christopher LaPrath Media LLC Psychic, Medium, Clairvoyant

When most people hear the words psychic or medium, they immediately assume the “unseen” I will show them are spirits or loved ones that have left the earth plane. While that does happen in my readings, many times what I uncover for my clients are hidden belief systems that block them from moving forward.

For the past 30 years in Phoenix, I have helped hundreds of people see the unseen and move forward in their lives with intention and an expanded level of consciousness.

Many years ago, in order to help me understand why I perceive what I sense and see, I went to a Neuroscientist to have my brain tested. After a plethora of tests, the Neuroscientist simply came out and said that there were no records of anyone like me ever studied. He said my parietal lobe is functioning at over 200% of what is normal and my neurons fire in both directions, but I control the firing of those neurons. Most people’s neurons only fire in one direction. Since no one like me had ever been studied, the Neuroscientist had no idea of the ramifications of how a brain like mine worked.

I live in the natural world but have a passport to the supernatural and metaphysical, which I experience every day. I have been called ‘psychic’, ‘clairvoyant’ ‘seer’, or several other labels that only partially fit.

“I had to live my life over again, I should devote myself to the psychical (psychic) research, rather than psychoanalysis” Sigmund Freud, letter to Hereward Carrington, 1921

So, like Freud, I have devoted my life to this study of what most do not see.

I only know that what I see has helped many people and I want to help more.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and a Master’s degree in Human Dynamics.

I have written a book about the haunted house I was raised in with the title: TRESTLE CREEK: THINGS THE DEAD FEAR

The ‘dead’ can be a play on words. Many people today, though alive, feel ‘dead’ inside. Perhaps they have lost hope, lost loved ones, or are living in less than harmonious relationships. Perhaps they are ‘dead’ to seeing the truth or a way out of their situation.

A woman from Chandler came to me one day, asking if she should quit her job on Monday. (This was on a Saturday before she planned to turn in her resignation.)

I looked at her and saw (with my ‘firing in both directions neurons’) a little girl running around her. I said: “Well, you are pregnant. It is a little girl and she will be premature.”

This woman stood up, arguing with me that she was definitely NOT pregnant. She paid me and left me in an angry state for not answering her question.

In a way I did answer her question, but not in the way she expected.

Seven months later I get a call from this woman who was thrilled she had found me. She asked if I could come and read for her entire family who had flown in from Dallas. She explained that she had left me and went to go get a pregnancy test. The test confirmed she was pregnant. She gave birth 2 months premature to a little girl who is now 14 years old.

She did not quit her job as she had great medical insurance and it helped cover the tremendous costs of the premature birth. So in a way, I did answer her question! Right?

This woman is still with the same company but in a major leadership position. She oversees 75,000 people.

My clients range from housewives, celebrities, businessmen and women, and heads of companies.

My website is unique, as it allows people to book their appointments anonymously, without me knowing their names. I do not know whom I am reading for until they appear on my ZOOM screen. There is no way I can do prior research to find out about them. This is why I work with one of the foremost Branding and Marketing agencies in the United States. The Felice Agency in Phoenix came up with this concept to alleviate any doubters.

What have been my challenges?

Marilyn Ferguson in THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY said this:

“Our worries are our safe boundaries: Over time we have learned to identify with our limits.

Now leery of trusting the promise of an oasis, we defend the merits of the desert”

As I grew older and we moved out of the haunted house I speak of in my book, I became heavily involved in religion. I even became a missionary with a one-way ticket to the Republic of China. I lived there for years and I used the religion and the teachings as a ‘glass ceiling’ that I bestowed on myself. I began to defend the merits of the desert, so I would not have to look at my gifts. I simply wanted, at that time to forget the promise of the oasis of who I actually was and what I saw and I settled for the desert, that place of denial. Just like my family did. The religion was restrictive, which for me was perfect as I was restricting MYSELF.

It took tremendous courage to break free and find myself again. I had overcome living in a haunted house which was like living in a horror movie 24/7 for years. I struggled to find meaning in those events and so when religion came along I found I could easily compartmentalize things. “OH, this is Satan, this is GOD” type of reasoning, which was very limiting and caused a non-nurturing mind desert to occur in my life.

I could see ghosts, but I could not see myself.

My destiny is connecting people to the divine yet I had to learn what divinity and spirituality truly were and it did not come from a book, teaching, or projection that others put on me.

My life has been about finding the connections to the ‘divine’ psyche, and consciousness.

I had to wander in the darkest alleys of my own created reality and self-imposed limitations. This wandering through, helped me understand what other people go through and to see the influences blocking them. This has made me able to relate to others, no matter their age or status in life.

Like a blue tooth that can disconnect from a vehicle or communication device, I repair what was blocked or lost in others.

I help people stop identifying with their limits and worries because I believe that worries set the limits of our lives.

I am able to assist individuals, families, organizations, and companies with this ability.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I really enjoy the Pueblo Grande Museum and Archeological Park. This site once was inhabited by the Hohokam Culture. I’d also suggest the Wrigley Mansion for a tour and then the Orpheum Theater for a play.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to my son, Kenan LaPrath who has been a constant source of encouragement.

Some other sources of support and inspiration I’d like to mention are my producer, Jack London with Crescent Room Music who assists me with my weekly live readings on twitch.com. My friend, Tony Felice and his team at The Felice Agency have helped me share my story with the world and my dear friend Barbara Hepburn with Mind-Body Health.
