U.S. military psychic spies, homicide cases, messages from the other side, spiritual healing—Marla Frees was given a gift few receive, and she uses those gifts from “Spirit” to help others.
While shooting a TV commercial in Los Angeles, Marla Frees was given a message. The father of the actor sitting across from her wanted the actor to know he was happy about the new baby. But there was a twist—the father was deceased.
The actor was shocked. Marla was God-smacked. Increasingly, messages from deceased loved ones and a powerful psychic awareness demanded her attention. Marla followed her heart, left acting, and never looked back. She now uses her gifts to help families from the heartland to Hollywood find healing. American Psychic tells the spiritual journey of a small-town girl who develops her psychic gifts and relationship with God on a synchronistic path that weaves through the trauma of her childhood, the drama of her acting career, and adventures in healing and transformation.
Along the way, she’s explored her abilities with U.S. military “psychic spies,” assisted detectives on homicide cases, and delved into the science behind her abilities with physicist Thomas Campbell. Marla has learned to trust the voice of “Spirit,” which never fails her. Marla Frees’ story of spiritual transformation takes us into realms that will astonish, inspire—and heal.
