Carra says she grew up in a metaphysical family, so she always considered psychic phenomena natural, not supernatural. “My father had an occult library, my mother had prophetic dreams and my aunt read from a half deck of playing cards,” she recalls. In 1979, Carra had a spiritual awakening and experienced what she describes as “a light that made me aware of the oneness of all things. It was very healing and forgiving.” After that she began using her intuition to solve problems and help others.
