406. A Career Path Set by Psychic Guidance
As a four-year-old, her grandfather visited her as she was dropping off to sleep. He told her to tell her mother she had talked with him. She did. That’s when she learned her grandfather had died a week earlier. Looking back on her life now, she recalls, “There were a lot of experiences like that.”

How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“When I was four years old, I was in bed and my grandfather came and started to talk to me. He told me to get out of bed and go tell my mom what he had said. So, I did. I remember her looking a little surprised. She asked, ‘Who told you that?’ and I told her my grandfather had told me. ‘Where’s grandpa?,’ she asked. ‘He’s in the room, mommy.’ What I didn’t know was that he had passed away a week earlier. My family didn’t believe in telling children about death, so my sister and I didn’t know. It was such a validation from Spirit that I had the gift at an early age. My mom still remembers it. There were a lot of experiences says like that.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“In 2007, I was studying for the CPA exam. Suddenly my heart started racing, and I sensed my neighbor was dying.” It turned out to be a false alarm. A couple of weeks later, the sensation returned, once again interrupting her study for the exam. She called 911. Entering through a small bathroom window, Colby found her neighbor dead in his recliner. “Clearly, at that moment. I knew that I was supposed to be doing something else with my life other than this CPA exam!”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“Whatever your stage in life, expand your awareness! Go on hikes, do some meditation, find out what you truly like. The more you can find ways to reach your inner self, the sooner you can find out what motivates and excites you. But make sure ideas and expectations implanted in you from childhood. That’s what starts to show you where you are supposed to go, what roads you are supposed to take.”
