About

Daughter of 2 teachers, oldest of 4 sisters, Annie grew up watching her mother on stage in community theater productions. When Ann was young her mother indulged in trips to the Chicago History and Art museums and taught the ability of “People Watching.”  During museum lunches she would ask, “What do you feel that woman is thinking?  What do you think is going on in their life?”  Little did she know she was fine tuning her daughter’s future as a full time National intuitive adviser. Ann calls her gift as a child “Additional Dimension Disorder”. Adapting to a world of sensory rather than logic, intuition was like a fan that ran in the background that never turned off making normal focus difficult.

Carrying on in the vein of her mother’s love of drama, in her early twenties Ann Marie read Tarot cards and palms in a colorful tent at university art flea markets. From coffee houses and summer fairs, College pubs and gift boutiques, she managed to astound even cynics of Clairvoyance. From street person, musician, boutique clairvoyant reader, to single Mom life, it has been a balance between survival, gardening, parenting and spiritual reading.   With age came profound peace of mind and intuitive clarity. In 2001 she left a bloody, contradicting packing house job to become a full time National Phone Adviser.  Within a year she opened her psychic studio, “Maries Safe Haven.” When her first 5 ft. cement garden angel flew in down the lane suspended from a boom truck, her journey with artistic Feng Shui began. Her third published book, “Gardens of the Sisterhood” explains her process of channeling spirit, garden creation and energy placement of chimes and statuary.

It is Ann Marie’s mission to aid others through the 40 days and nights of their wilderness, and believes her own survival journey as a light worker gives wisdom and hope. In 2011 she certified in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy to better deliver peaceful intuitive message delivery.
She and her husband live on a tree canopied lane in the Midwest surrounded by many gardens, with many rescued animals, embracing a modest but loving life.

Ann Marie’s Ethical Code of Intuitive Reading

•     I will not judge you.
•      I will be truthful, but tactful.
•      I will not sugar coat the truth to keep you coming back. I will tell the good with the bad.
•      I will help “form” your questions when you are having trouble asking what you feel.
•      I will admit when I`m over my head, and refer you to qualified sources.
•      I am not a fortune teller. All readings will fit within a 12-month time frame.
•      I won`t play God and predict death or life span.
•      I am an Intuitive spiritual guide, but will not encourage you to be dependent on me.
•      I will keep my face averted when reading in person and NOT study your body language
•      Your path with God is your own and you always have free will. Your privacy is sacred.

 

Family History

fgMy Grandfather, Franklin Grew, studied in the New York school of art. In 1919 he sketched and painted his way across America on the “new” Lincoln Highway. He met my grandmother, Margaretta, as he stopped for gas in State Center, Iowa. He never left. A bit of a David Thoreau type he created detailed leather bound books on the wild life and prairie plants around his acreage. As a child I remember Grandpa smelled like oil paints and would rock me in a chair surrounded by his wonderful wall sized oil paintings. Grandpa was a free spirit and chose the opposite life of his brother, Joseph.

 
Great Uncle “Joseph Clark Grew” – Career American Ambassador

jcgMy Great Uncle, Joseph Clark Grew, chose the life of a career Service man and United States Ambassador. Early in his career, {around the time Grandpa was riding an Indian Harley} Joseph was Ambassador at the American Embassy in Vienna. {1921- 1924} His life mission took him to serve as American Ambassador of Denmark, Switzerland and Turkey. He was the American Ambassador in Tokyo at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the opening of war between the United States and the Japanese Empire. Like my Grandfather he lived a long, unique robust life of passion until his 80s.
