NEW BOOK: “CAPTIVATED BY THE LIGHT: Evolution of a Medium”


My newest book is now available:


When does a person begin to realize they are not just a body operating in a three-dimensional, material world? What multitude of influences converges to change our focus and cause us to cease looking for fulfillment outside of ourselves, and begin turning inward? Yogis call this shift in awareness an experience of “world weariness,” a time when we ask ourselves: Is this all there is?

For Jessica, the moment came quite unexpectedly when the “veil between the worlds” parted and she was illuminated by Spiritual Light for the first time. It’s difficult to describe the Light in human language, because words fail to reflect the brilliance of the colors and the way they vibrate with living energy. Nevertheless, readers of this book will gain greater understanding as to how we are all embodiments of the Light—and the need to manifest more of it in the world.

There is always the potential for redemption, forgiveness and healing. In this testament to the adaptability of the human spirit, Jessica writes with searing honesty of the early trauma that led her to spirituality, and her subsequent journey from darkness toward the Light. Readers will also enjoy her colorful stories about coming of age at the end of the beatnik era, her hitchhiking adventures, traveling with Swami Muktananda, studying with the faith healers of the Philippines, and developing her clairvoyant abilities.

The author’s writing is so descriptive that when I came to the part about “cups of coffee, sweet and white with cream,” I had to stop right there and go make myself a cup of coffee, and I don’t even drink coffee! Again…her voice comes through strong and true when she describes life in the Philippines, “This is how life should be lived–in a community that first nurtures itself, and then radiates love out in ever-widening circles until the possibility exists for everyone in the world to be at peace and filled with joy.” I have also felt what she describes as “world weariness” and the need for a “shift in awareness.” This book inspires me to meditation in these times of turmoil. I am grateful for the inspiration and entertainment I experienced from reading this book.


This is a wonderful book about the author’s life journey and her searching for answers. To me, it was a book of hope, no matter what life may throw at you, you can surmount anything. Never give up searching for your own answers. A wonderful and captivating read.

The theme of healing family of origin experiences weaves through Jessica’s story, supporting the potency of authentic forgiveness. It is within this vulnerability that I could connect Jessica’s gift of mediumship and how distorted views of our lives preclude clear seeing and sharing of Love. 

This is stunning, raw, and honest storytelling. All of the characters entering and exiting are carefully explored and are representative of people in our own stories, in their various expressions of experiencing lack and diminishment. Through Jessica’s emergence from trauma we see that the heart is inviolable. Her true nature reveals itself throughout her early years and comes into full expression through her awareness and acceptance of the wounded human psyche. I rejoiced as she was freed to navigate the energetic dimension where true healing occurs.
