Michael was born into an Italian-American and Native American family. He was born in the Chicago area. As a child, Michael never considered himself to be any different from those around him.  However that changed once he started attending school, when Michael would draw pictures, he would shade a golden light around the person or object. Michael can remember when his teacher asked, why would he included a golden light around everything he drew. Michael remembers telling her, "because everything has a light around them".  not realising that being able to see auras is not something that most people can do.  So, when Michael asked his mother, why would the teacher asked him that, she explained how he was given a gift which made him special. Michael's mother wasn't surprised when she saw his  drawings, since psychic abilities weren't out of the ordinary in their family.  She knew that he was going to need all the support that she could give him. The next few years, Michael's mother helped develop and control his gifts. She bought him books on every subject, she thought would help him have a better understanding about his gift. They would play what they called the "color game". She would think of a color and would send it to him through her thoughts. Michael always knew the correct color. The "Knowing Gift" was just as normal to him as anything else and it became a part of his everyday life as a child.


As Michael Gourley grew into his early teens, things became a little more challenging. What seemed so normal as a child no longer did. Imagine having a gift no one understood, on top of your regular teenage issues. At first he did not realize but his friends started to act different around him because they did not understand why and how Michael would know things that they never mentioned and when the word started to get around that Michael was seeing spirits and claiming to be delivering their messages, Michael began to find himself alone and it was getting harder to keep friends. So, Michael decided to put all his efforts in his gifts, since it was the one thing no one could take away from him.  


Michael Gourley's gift was so strong when he turned 17, that his visions could not be ignored. He started writing everything down on paper to get it out of his head. When the media heard news of a young man whose predictions and medium abilities were so incredible that they decided to publish his predictions, his predictions were so accurate that they did a follow-up article the following year, and invited him back year after year.  Since Michael was able to provide detailed predictions which were well documented in newspapers and radio stations, that he was the youngest Psychic Medium asked to join America's Best Psychics.  After a couple of years he was on the right track..... so he thought. With all this new founded success also came the downside to this gift. Michael had unanswered questions himself. The responsibilities that came with his gifts started to take its toll on him. How could he help people when he still didn't understand his gift? Michael decided to walk away from everything to seek answers he still had about his gifts and his process.


The next few years Michael Gourley tried to live a so-called normal life. He went back to school and tried being "normal". but no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't run away from his abilities. Michael tried blocking his visions, the feelings he would get, and most important, the guilt. The guilt of knowing things and not being able to help. Since Michael didn't want to open that door again, after a while Michael could not tell his own thoughts from those around him. Michael was seeking guidance. He turned to religion and meditation. He studied one after another. Michael was not satisfied with the unanswered questions he still had. After months  and years of searching, Michael finally found his true meaning of religion, one God many faces. {Read his thoughts on religion}



Chicago Psychic Medium Michael's thought on spirituality

 One evening Michael was meditating, like he usually did, but this time it was different. He remembers having this feeling, that he was not alone and that he was in the presence of something great. Michael had a calming feeling that overcame him.  Michael felt like he was being pushed out a door, in a direction he was avoiding. Michael saw himself walking through the door and this time, Michael knew he was walking into the world as what God had made him... A Psychic Medium. Michael knew at that moment that he had something incredible to offer to the world and that this is what he was meant to do. If everyone had their talents to share, then he was certainly not going to hide his anymore. So the next day, Michael decided that he would start his new journey by helping people get closer to their spirituality and help guide people in the right path to be able to find closure.

"THANK YOU MICHAEL!!! Yesterday I received a reading from Michael and it has helped me to make choices and decisions to move forward in my life with a lot more understanding. Many things were confirmed and thats what I needed. I had witnessed Michael give readings but this was the first time for myself. How amazing! I feel for myself and to keep on track I will be gettiing a follow-up read every so often. Stay BLESSED Michael...<3"


"Thank you so much for my session today! I feel much more at ease with the answers I received about my loved ones passing. I look forward to hosting a party so my family and friends can all experience what I experienced today!"
