Thirty years ago, when I started a career as a psychic reader, synchronicity brought a wonderful women named Claire Halberstam into my life.

A soldier who examined his papers said to him, "You say you are a good Christian? Well then, why don't you recite a Christian prayer for me now, one that all good Christians should know by heart?" The soldier chose a prayer for Halberstam to recite, and luckily it was the one Halberstam knew. He still remembered after 10 years, and it saved him.
