Crystal clear Local psychic works to dispel myths (Dec. 2004 issue)

Psychic Pernel Dove reads tarot cards to UF student Katie Hartsock in her Archer Road home and warns her of a lawsuit in her future.
Dove is developing a lab to test the abilities of those claiming to be psychic.
For five years, Pernel Dove warned her friends, family and clients there would be an attack in New York City. No one believed her until Sept. 11, 2001.
Later, she found out that Osama bin Laden had begun to plan his attacks about the same time she began to "pick it up."
Dove is used to her predictions being ignored; itís been that way most of her life.
As a child, Dove didnít realize she was "different," and when she spoke of the things she saw, she was punished.
Her father took her aside and explained that her grandmother had psychic abilities, and he did as well. No one understood. The best way to deal with it was just to shut up about it, he said. So she did.
But Dove is no longer silent. She now uses her abilities to help people every day.
"I believe in helping people. Thatís what Iím here to do," she said.
Dove is a clairvoyant and a tarot and angel card reader. She also communicates with spirits. Dove performs readings via phone, e-mail and at her home off Archer Road.
On Monday afternoon, the Arredondo Farms mobile home community was quiet. Doveís dining room sparkled with Christmas garland and tinsel as she stood behind Katie Hartsock, a first-time visitor.
Hartsock, a UF senior, faced away from the psychic with her head tilted slightly back and Doveís hands covering her eyes. Dove stood in silence, eyes closed, focusing the energy.
"Look in the center of the black," she instructed.
Then the room was silent, except for the sound of a catís tail thumping against the table.
"Tell us what you see."
"I see pink, almost rosy," Hartsock murmured.
Dove had signaled silently she should see red.
The treatment is called universal energy. She explained she pulled the energy from the universe and directed it to Hartsock. This can be used for many purposes, including determining health problems.
Despite the stigma attached to the many rituals that she performs, there are no glowing candles, dim lights or crystal balls in Doveís home. Wearing a white shirt, jeans and sneakers, Dove said she cringes when sheís asked to "dress the part."
"I hate the dramatics. Itís all 1920s garbage stuff," she said.
Dove said that psychics got a bad rap in the 1920s during the Great Depression. People needed to put dinner on the table for their families, and what easier way than to whip out a crystal ball?
"That image is going to be so hard to destroy - especially when people out there are still doing it," she said.
Dove is nobodyís fool, and she has a wall full of degrees to prove it. She obtained her bachelor of science from Central Michigan University. She has a masterís degree in religion and a doctorate in metaphysics.
Dove said she is working to stop the scams.
Through her nonprofit organization, Psychic Scientific Investigators, Dove plans to open a lab in the Gainesville area that will develop testing to determine if those claiming to be psychic actually are.
"Our whole premise is going to be to try and devise a standardized method of testing," she said.
Tests will be developed for each psychic ability one may claim to possess.
Dove was put to the test by former NASA scientist Jere Patton. She, along with close to 300 other psychics, was put through a rigorous investigation, including questions about secret government projects and meters measuring electromagnetic fields.
At the end of the testing period, only Dove and one other psychic remained. Patton now is working with Dove to open the lab in Gainesville.
"It is no longer a question of if there is psychic ability. Quantum mechanics has already shown us that," she said. "The question is: How can we use it?"
Until she opens the lab, Dove will continue to work from her home. She has regular customers all over the world, from Germany to Taiwan.
In-home consultations cost $50 an hour. Phone advice costs $160 an hour. E-mail questions are $5.

Swamped by schoolwork, reading and looming deadlines, I ask, "Am I ever going to graduate?" When I do, what will my job be?"
The answer to the questions playing pinball in my head finally come to me Ė go see a psychic, someone who possibly could see into my future and make sense of my uncertainties.
I decided to give it a try, so I visited a few psychics in Gainesville and got readings from "Pernel" (a clairvoyant from Krystalnet Psychics), Flash Silvermoon and the Rev. Joan Garfinkel.
Pernel is a certified remote viewer. She sees things the same way as psychics who work with the police on investigations, by focusing and looking into someoneís life.
Former NASA scientist Dr. Jere Patton, Ph.D., A.B.I., certified Pernel when she used remote viewing to tell details of a confidential project.
"He got really angry when I told him about it," Pernel said. "He started yelling, "You canít know that! Thereís only six people in the whole world who know that!" and I just said, "Well, now thereís seven."
Pernel now uses her powers to tell others what she sees in their futures, both over the phone and via e-mil at www.krystalnet.com
I found Pernelís abilities convincing. While she was a bit off in calling my mother "quiet" she was accurate in the rest of her description of both her looks and personality.
Pernel will tell you the good and the bad, which she demonstrated by telling me I will grow tired of my current boyfriend, and my attentions will turn elsewhere. That remains to be seen, as does my career. She suggests I have strong inclinations towards law, being on TV and living in Washington.
I was impressed when she told me about a childhood friend I havenít seen since she moved away in the first grade, and a pain Iíd been having in my hand-both of which she knew with no prompting.
Pernel has been aware of her abilities since childhood.
