Isaac Volbrecht sits down at the small table at Sacred Circle where Marie-Claire Wilson is doing a reading. Wilson reaches across the large gold stars and says, “Give me the numbers of your life.” Using numerology she comes up with Volbrecht's life number, which is 5. She connects with her psychic ability to continue. "You are very energetic, a person of many talents — acting, dancing, public speaker.”
"Yeah," Volbrecht replies, "I went to acting school and was building a career in New York City. But I didn’t like the atmosphere or people around me."
Wilson continues, "You are a spiritual leader; you have a big goal in life. You will work hard, but you will need to overcome obstacles and be patient; this will be a big year for you. It will be sometimes difficult.” She says, "You need to accept the challenge. Only you control yourself. How you respond is the best test from the cosmos."
Volbrecht says, "Everything you have said is right on point."
Wilson continues, "I feel like I have been talking to a gray, an older soul, you have many older friends. You feel like you are a mature man."
She continues, "I want to see your hands." He places both hands on the table palms up. Wilson explains the left hand is how you were born and the right hand is what you will accomplish. “These lines change every 7 years."
"The more you are older, the more you will accomplish." But she says his love life has been complex. "You attract a lot but they are like a dog with no leash. You will not marry fast."
She says, "You have two lives in one life. The first can be very superficial but you use it to have a second life over it."
Wilson turns to her deck of 22 tarot cards that she has designed herself. The first is Awakening. "This is a beautiful card. You dream a lot." She turns over the Foole card. "You deal with crazy people a lot."
He says, “Yes, I am around a lot of people I have to be around but don't think the same way."
Next she uncovers Transportation. "You are moving."
Volbrecht answers, "Yes, I am moving in two months."
The Moderation card is next. "You have a beautiful connection, peace of mind. You have a lot of spiritual guides and stuff like this."
Volbrecht replies, "I am a very spiritual person, so this is very meaningful."
She tells him, "You have planets going in the wrong direction now and you have had a very bad month. But it will be over soon,"
He answers, "That is good because it has been a really awful month, very bad."
Wilson asks if he has any questions so he asks about his health. "You are a tree, in very good shape but you are very sensitive; if something hurts, you go into a depression." She said to deal with it he should imagine he is in a plane and looking down at the tiny figures on the ground as she demonstrates peering down from her chair at the floor. She says, "I think you already are on the plane." He nods yes.
Wilson first recalls being aware of tarot cards when she was 8 years old in Marseille, where she grew up, and her mother took her along when she went to see someone. The woman told Wilson to take a nap because she wanted to talk to her mom. "But I sneaked out of bed and found the tarot cards. I asked what they were." She said, "little one, life is a question and people come to me with many questions. Someday you do like me."
Volbrecht concludes, "I feel like I know with my psychic ability but it is always good to hear it from another sensitive person. Marie Claire really knows." He turns to her, "Thank you for that."
