Wonderful reading with my buddy Barb (Barbara) at InSpirit Centre.
I met Barb over 15yrs ago at Earthworks in Brampton. I’ll never forget how her eyes lit up when she first saw me as though our souls recognized each other.
Barb became one of my most significant spiritual teachers who helped open up all that was within me and more in this esoteric, metaphysical, woo woo world.
I am so grateful that she has known me all these years and has seen my growth until now.
It reminded me to take a step back and look at myself through their eyes as confirmation of my inner knowing that I have indeed grown…and that I continue to grow….for that, to me, is the point of LIFE.

I've had Reiki done a few times with Barbara. One time was very special as my nana who had passed away came through to me. Reiki with Barbara is amazing because it calms me, keeps me centered and I feel great for days after.

I just had an amazing reading with Ms. Barbara Ford! I found her to be very genuine and I really am grateful to have had the experience of my reading with her. She is a fantastic listener who has calmed my worries, has empowered me with information and knowledge. I was not embarrassed to talk to or ask questions of Ms. Ford and felt she was non-judgmental. She has given me some peace towards knowing that I have a content future coming. Ms. Ford was accurate in her descriptions of the current dramas affecting my life. I hope to have another reading with her again when I am at a crossroads and in need of some enlightened advice in the future again. I wish her all good blessings.
Thank you so much & Kind regards

I have had Barbara perform two reading for me so far, and both times her accuracy was astounding. She not only was able to tell me about things currently going on in my life, but also could foresee impending things such as a job change and more profoundly the purpose of and the ending of a relationship I was in at the time. I would highly recommend Barbara's services to anyone interested in a tarot reading, reiki session or house clearing!
Tim J. Assistant Manager, Florida, USA
I was referred to Barbara to expand my view of reality. Very skeptical at the time, I was reluctant to send her my four photos. Barbara knew absolutely nothing about me and the four people I chose to "be read", but the readings I got back blew my mind. Honestly, I have no words to describe the quality of Barbara's accurate readings - it's all overflowing emotions! A year later, every time I re-read her perceptive comments, I'm positively shocked, full of gratitude and amazement! The reading I got back about one of the photos touched me the most - it was the photo of my deceased mother, and the reading I got back from Barbara contained very personal bits of information that only I knew. Barbara did a beautiful job, and I would certainly recommend her services to anyone.
Natalie S., Student, Russia
I have contacted Barbara for reiki, ear candling, paranormal investigations, readings and therapeutic touch. As you can tell, I turn to Barbara for just about everything and she has never failed me.
She's always been professional and has a gift for making people feel at ease, even when they're out of their comfort zone. She's extremely intuitive and trustworthy and has made it her life's work to help others as a holistic practitioner.
Her reiki and therapeutic touch sessions are so relaxing. Her readings are professional and extremely informative and she's a wonderful teacher.
Whether it's reiki or tarot that you're interested in, Barbara is patient and always willing to help you learn. Needless to say, Barbara isn't one of the "psychics" that stare into the crystal ball they found on ebay. She truly is a gifted individual and I will continue to call on her in the future.
Lorien K. Wildlife Specialist, Danville, Virginia, USA
I went to Barbara to experience the Reiki sensation that I had read so much about and to see if I could get the pain in my neck/shoulders to disappear. When I was on the table or sitting straight up in a chair the whole one side of my body felt as though it disappeared. It was an odd sensation. I felt this warmth all the way through my body and my cheeks were rosy, a sign to me that energy was flowing. I have never experience that kind of sensation before in my life. Then after a few minutes the feeling came back and I felt more balanced than I have in some a long time. I just wanted to thank Barbara for the difference she has made in the way that I feel after receiving several Reiki sessions with her, I have been feeling stronger and healthier. I came away feeling very calm and centered (as well as rather amazed by some of the things I experienced!)
The healing energy that she channelled has made a big difference for me.
Thank you so much Barbara. I really appreciate all that you have done for me.
Karen K. Administrative Assistant, Parry Sound, Ontario
Thank you, thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU!
That was extremely kind of you, I really appreciate you taking the time to communicate with her and giving me a true message. I am deeply thankful,
Gisselle A. Student USA
Barbara's reading helped me to identify key issues that were affecting me at the time. She did not push a particular course of action but instead explored the roots of the issues, which helped me to make my own decisions. Barbara is sensitive and trustworthy and I look forward to working with her again.
