Most of the clients who come to me for medical intuitive readings are in fact alive and seeking insight, solutions and healing for their personal health.

In February of this year, I was contacted by the grandmother of a young man who suffered sudden death at age 19.

An autopsy proved inconclusive. No doctor could explain why he died. The family was left bereft, not only missing their dear one but also seeking answers why a young man seemingly in the prime of his life could pass away with no warning.

Months later the grandmother has related to me how helpful my reading has been to everyone in the family so I am reprinting my notes here as I emailed them to her and using the young man’s first name only.

My notes to the grandmother:

I’m SO sorry for your loss. Matthew was indeed a very special person!!

age 19 at time of death

have permission from Matthew’s soul, yes

cause of death –

organ failure, shock, trauma – no

problem with his heart – arrhythmia –

24 hours before his death – his heart was operating at 24/100

72 to 85/100 would be normal

problem with a valve in his heart

pulmonary valve –

I’m hearing embolism

he himself was surprised – he had been having chest pains but didn’t tell anybody about it – he didn’t know what they were but thought they would go away


this is what I get the cause of his death was:

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blockage of an artery in the lungs by a substance that has traveled from elsewhere in the body through the bloodstream (embolism).[1] Symptoms of a PE may include shortness of breath, chest pain particularly upon breathing in, and coughing up blood.[2] Symptoms of a blood clot in the leg may also be present such as a red, warm, swollen, and painful leg.[2] Signs of a PE include low blood oxygen levels, rapid breathing, rapid heart rate, and sometimes a mild fever.[3] Severe cases can lead to passing out, abnormally low blood pressure, and sudden death.[4]

Matthew speaks through me to his grandmother:

I’m so sorry I have disappointed you.

physical level major organs 24 hours before his death:

heart 24/100

lung – L – 43/100

Lung – R – 45/100

small intestine – 72/100

large intestine 83/100

spleen – 73/100

liver – 84/100

gallbladder – 72/100

Energetic Level

his primary operating chakra – 2nd chakra – he was definitely learning to test his own power. Although 2nd chakra is often thought of as our sexual chakra is also the one where we practice personal power.

He was enjoying exploring his personal power and making note of the power and influence he held over other people.

While not exactly a manipulator, he enjoyed noting how his own energy affected other people. He was somewhat shy but learning to use his power for leadership.

He was acutely aware of his own personal energy and how his energy affected other people almost like an alchemical soup, how he got along with certain people and not so much others.

He wanted to use his personal power for the good as opposed to evil and was exploring themes of personal  power and leadership.

He wanted to be a leader and was learning which pedals to push so to speak when it came to other people, which would make people laugh and which would make people cry, how he could get other people to follow him and what would turn other people off.

He saw himself as a leader of men even though he was quite young that was the path that he was on, the path of leadership and specifically servant leadership.

Emotional level

His primary emotion in the month before his death: Central meridian – self respect

This follows the theme of his energy operating out of the 2nd chakra.

He was learning to practice self respect specifically as a means of feeling successful.

He wanted to be able to respect himself and what he was doing and he was hoping that by respecting himself more that other people would respect him also.

He was learning what would make him increase his self respect and what struggles would make him lose self respect.

Mental Level

He was a 9 on the enneagram, the peacemaker/mediator

Nines are accepting, trusting, and stable. They are usually creative, optimistic, and supportive, but can also be too willing to go along with others to keep the peace. They want everything to go smoothly and be without conflict, but they can also tend to be complacent, simplifying problems and minimizing anything upsetting. They typically have problems with inertia and stubbornness. At their Best: indomitable and all-embracing, they are able to bring people together and heal conflicts.

• Basic Fear: Of loss and separation

• Basic Desire: To have inner stability “peace of mind”

• Enneagram Nine with an Eight-Wing: “The Referee”

• Enneagram Nine with a One-Wing: “The Dreamer”

Type Nine Overview

We have called personality type Nine The Peacemaker because no type is more devoted to the quest for internal and external peace for themselves and others. They are typically “spiritual seekers” who have a great yearning for connection with the cosmos, as well as with other people. They work to maintain their peace of mind just as they work to establish peace and harmony in their world. The issues encountered in the Nine are fundamental to all psychological and spiritual work—being awake versus falling asleep to our true nature; presence versus entrancement, openness versus blockage, tension versus relaxation, peace versus pain, union versus separation.

Ironically, for a type so oriented to the spiritual world, Nine is the center of the Instinctive Center, and is the type that is potentially most grounded in the physical world and in their own bodies. The contradiction is resolved when we realize that Nines are either in touch with their instinctive qualities and have tremendous elemental power and personal magnetism, or they are cut off from their instinctual strengths and can be disengaged and remote, even lightweight.

To compensate for being out of touch with their instinctual energies, Nines also retreat into their minds and their emotional fantasies. (This is why Nines can sometimes misidentify themselves as Fives and Sevens, “head types,” or as Twos and Fours, “feeling types.”) Furthermore, when their instinctive energies are out of balance, Nines use these very energies against themselves, damming up their own power so that everything in their psyches becomes static and inert. When their energy is not used, it stagnates like a spring-fed lake that becomes so full that its own weight dams up the springs that feed it. When Nines are in balance with their Instinctive Center and its energy, however, they are like a great river, carrying everything along with it effortlessly.

We have sometimes called the Nine the crown of the Enneagram because it is at the top of the symbol and because it seems to include the whole of it. Nines can have the strength of Eights, the sense of fun and adventure of Sevens, the dutifulness of Sixes, the intellectualism of Fives, the creativity of Fours, the attractiveness of Threes, the generosity of Twos, and the idealism of Ones. However, what they generally do not have is a sense of really inhabiting themselves—a strong sense of their own identity.

Ironically, therefore, the only type the Nine is not like is the Nine itself. Being a separate self, an individual who must assert herself against others, is terrifying to Nines. They would rather melt into someone else or quietly follow their idyllic daydreams.

Red, a nationally known business consultant, comments on this tendency:

“I am aware of focusing on other people, wondering what they are like, how and where they live, etc. In a relationship with others, I often give up my own agenda in favor of the other person’s. I have to be on guard about giving in to other’s demands and discounting my own legitimate needs.”

Nines demonstrate the universal temptation to ignore the disturbing aspects of life and to seek some degree of peace and comfort by “numbing out.” They respond to pain and suffering by attempting to live in a state of premature peacefulness, whether it is in a state of false spiritual attainment, or in more gross denial. More than any other type, Nines demonstrate the tendency to run away from the paradoxes and tensions of life by attempting to transcend them or by seeking to find simple and painless solutions to their problems.

To emphasize the pleasant in life is not a bad thing, of course—it is simply a limited and limiting approach to life. If Nines see the silver lining in every cloud as a way of protecting themselves from the cold and rain, other types have their distorting viewpoints, too. For example, Fours focus on their own woundedness and victimization, Ones on what is wrong with how things are, and so forth. By contrast, Nines tend to focus on the “bright side of life” so that their peace of mind will not be shaken. But rather than deny the dark side of life, what Nines must understand is that all of the perspectives presented by the other types are true, too. Nines must resist the urge to escape into “premature Buddhahood” or the “white light” of the Divine and away from the mundane world. They must remember that “the only way out is through.”

Matthew was a Level 3 nine

Matthew’s body type:

The Eye body type


The Eye Body Type



Just as our eyes link us to our outer world and environment, and provide a window to our soul, Eye body types link their inner and outer worlds through implementing visions. They visualize what they want to manifest and then set out to make it happen.


Celebrities with Eye body type include:

Calista Flockhart, Patrick Stewart, Jessica Tandy, Will Smith


Eye Body Type Diet


Diet – Focus on foods high in good fats and adequate dense protein, like fish and shellfish.  Include foods high in Vitamin A like carrots, kelp, sweet potatoes, spinach and yams.

Meals – Smaller meals with snacks are often helpful.  VARIETY and ROTATION are essential, as the tendency is to find something you like and stay with it, rather than thinking about something different.

Exercise – Ideally, 1 hour every other day to aid digestion, maintain mental clarity, and reduce stress.  Emphasize lower body movement when stressed to release anger and frustration.

Sample List of Foods for Eye Body Types to Eat Seldom:

Ice cream, black walnuts, roasted garlic, artificial sweeteners such as Equal or Nutrasweet, margarine, diet sodas, broiled and charbroiled foods and fish, charred toast.

Full details of the adrenal body type diet including food lists, sample menus, exercise and weight loss tips are found in the Eye Body Type Profile and Diet Booklet and ebook.


Eye Body Type Personality Profile


Eye body types have excellent eyesight and/or the ability to see what others don’t notice


I have a unique ability to see the whole picture as well as the myriad details. I have a dry sense of humor, and a witty, rebellious side just beneath the surface. I can see the good even in the bleakest of situations. I have a practicality that can bring my visions and ideas into reality.

I like to see my visions implemented to make life better, and I prefer to do things differently or in my own way. Refusing to follow directions is my form of quiet rebellion which leads me to discover new ways of doing things. I am self-motivated and determined, easily applying myself to a task for hours at a time, and persevering to complete elaborate, complex endeavors. A project is done when it literally “looks right” to me. I tend to internalize my emotions and avoid negativity.


I link my inner and outer worlds through implementing visions. I visualize what I want to manifest, then I set out to make it happen. Vision is my dominant sense, and I have excellent eyesight and/or the ability to see, recognize or observe what others don’t notice.

I need to make a difference in the world to feel my life has meaning. I see the way things could be, the way they are, and what needs to happen to make the change. Making a difference in someone else’s life is an effective way of bringing my vision into physical reality. My sensitive spiritual side allows me to observe without judgment and makes me aware of the effect that simply releasing negative emotions has on people. It is easy for me to ignore or repress my unpleasant emotions.

Spiritual Level

he had completed his karmic contract in this lifetime

I’m receiving that his main purpose in this lifetime was harmony, promoting harmony amongst the people around him

I also received this morning that his soul was eager to conclude this lifetime in order to start another lifetime right away

On a spiritual level he was in a hurry.

I came and went, loved and lost. Don’t worry, all is well.

I received that in his current incarnation, the one he left in a hurry to embody, he is a female.

He did not like being a male (he was definitely not gay but he related better to the feminine way of looking at things) and was eager to explore feminine power.

He had no intention of causing so much harm to the family and now sees the effect that his passing caused to the entire energy of the family, creating a vacuum as it were.

He says everybody should enjoy their lives more and not “waste so much time suffering.”

On a soul level his purpose was to bring the family together and he says in an odd way his death has accomplished that, although he is sorry for the sorrow he caused by his sudden passing.

His primary psychic gift was vision – he had a picture of how he thought things ought to be in the world

On a karmic level, he was working on developing a positive self image. He wanted to be able to respect himself and all that he was doing.

He was struggling with negative cords and hooks from his father and trying to separate himself out, establishing his own identity. He did not feel he had succeeded yet at becoming his own man but he was working on it, trying.

In another lifetime he had made vows of sacrifice. He was able to do self sacrifice and had no problem sacrificing this lifetime for the next.

Matthew’s soul speaks through me:

I am sorry I caused so much pain.
