Presented by Laurie McQuary, CHT of Management By Intuition
From Coma to Psychic, 9 Mar 2006 [cached]
After counseling with her, Laurie was able to accept that she was different, might always be so, and that most probably her dubious gift of power to see into the future was the result of a terrible fall from a horse - a fall that hospitalized her in Escondido, CA, in a coma that lasted three weeks.
Laurie discovered from her own research that medical science has little understanding of the human brain. "We don't understand sleep, or the simple act of walking, or what a coma really is", Laurie said.
She said that numerous cases of head-injured people who revive from comas demonstrate an enhanced ability in many of them to intuit the thoughts of others and future events. How this happens no one knows, Laurie said. But one of the theories is that an "awakened" portion of the brain substitutes or compensates for a damaged portion. This awakened dormant part of the brain may be responsible for the very old human ability of intuition. In some people, by accident, genetic makeup or mental training, it becomes highly developed, powerful. And it is manifested in several forms - precognition, telepathy, telekinesis and others.
One form of intuition less frightening than disaster dreams to Laurie was her ability to listen in on the thoughts of others. This talent first occurred after her coma while she was on a routine shopping trip to the grocery store. Suddenly, she was flooded with the random thoughts of other people. At first she couldn't turn them off. On one occasion she was compelled to speak to a woman who was standing in the check out line in front of her. "Don't worry about your son," she said. "He's going to move to New York and he'll get the job he wants. The woman almost fainted. Later, Laurie learned to shut out unwanted voices.
Laurie said she did little to develop her second sight until she created some evenness in her life and the self-respect that comes with maturity. Much of her young womanhood was spent, Laurie said, rebelling against the anger of a molested childhood. She was married and divorced, held a variety of jobs, bore two children and eventually settled in Portland where about three years ago she began to give psychic consultations in her home. Soon she was able to give up her full- time nursing job.
She founded Management by Intuition in 1984 when she saw that her clientele was gradually changing from frustrated housewives to business men and women who came to her for employee appraisals, character evaluation and business trend predictions.
Presently. Laurie reads for about 120 people a month, including 25 Portland-area corporate clients. Also, she has business customers for whom she consults in California and Hawaii. Typical of the intuitive services she performs for clients is the business man who came to her with the request that she give him the lowdown on a prospective new business associate with whom he had tentatively agreed to do a business deal. Thousands of dollars were involved. He wanted confirmation of his personal judgment. Laurie asked for the name and birthdate of the man. Then she said to her client, "You cannot trust this person.
In another case, a distraught woman made an appointment with Laurie and said with a bitter sigh. "I've tried everything to locate my business partner. The s.o.b. absconded with almost $60,000. Can you help me find him? "I'll try," Laurie said. "What is his name and birthdate? The woman gave Laurie the information and Laurie said, "What does he have in Alaska? "Well, he used to do business there. "That's where you'll find him. In a motel, he's working in a low profile job, in Nome, Alaska" Did the woman recover her money? No, Laurie said. He had already disposed of it. But the man was apprehended by the police.
The case of the $5,000 money bag is a memorable one for Laurie who was contacted by a Portland real estate appraiser who regularly holds big auction sales. She was in the process of moving into a new house when she discovered the money bag in which she kept large amounts of cash was missing. Frantic, she telephoned Laurie after several hours of searching for the bag came to nothing. "I'm desperate," she said "I've never been to a psychic, but you've been recommended. A money bag with $5,000 in it has been stolen. Can you tell me who stole it? "Describe it to me," Laurie said. After listening to the description, Laurie said, "Nobody stole it. It's in your apartment. "It can't be. I've Iooked everywhere. "It's underneath something. I can see it clearly. It seems to be underneath a table, or lying on a table," Laurie said into the telephone. "I'll look again," the woman said. Two hours later, she called back. "You are something," she said, "I found it on the kitchen table beneath some pots and pans. How can I ever thank you?"
Occasionally, Laurie's gift of extra sensory perception involves her with celebrities, at least Oregon ones. This happened when the sister of Jack Faust, TV Channel 2 Town Hall host, was visiting with Laurie.
On impulse, Laurie brought up Jack's name. "This man is going to change his career, she said. "He will be in the spotlight.
"Yes. it does," asserts Laurie. I call it balancing the scales for the someone at loss and the person lost. The pain of not knowing whether or not a missing loved one is alive and safe or dead and lost can be something terrible to live with."
In some cases, the spirit of a dead person will remain where it last inhabited the corporeal body until the mystery of its death is solved, Laurie said. Often that spiritual presence is open to communication.
Such was the case of Kenny, a 25-year-old man who was found hanged in his bedroom closet. The coroner ruled suicide, but the family was not convinced and asked Laurie McQuary to investigate. With the family, she entered the house of the dead son in Kennewick, Washington. She bade the parents to wait in the living room while she entered the bedroom and closed the door. Almost immediately. she perceived the outline of the dead man and heard his voice declare that he had not killed himself. Laurie listened for several minutes, then returned to the living room where she told the parents what she had learned.
Laurie marked the location of the body on a map and said it was resting near a lake. When the search party returned and found the man's body exactly where Laurie said it would be, a few feet away from the original search path, and partially obscured by some branches, the sheriff was awed.
Laurie McQuary is practical about her gift. Intuition, she feels, is a learnable art.
It is still easier to scoff at things we don't understand, said Laurie. But, hey, we are growing more human. Nobody can really stop that from happening. Nobody can really stop us from learning to see through time and space and tomorrow, into ourselves, and opening our hearts to understanding.
In the meantime, Laurie McQuary continues to expand her customer base with men and women in business who want to know a little bit about their future and who find a link to it in a reading from the striking, dark-eyed woman, with gypsy ancestors, who blends lovely personal witchery with a bright personal approach to psychic analysis.

Laurie McQuary did not use a crystal ball while working on a recent murder investigation in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She does not wear purple robes or wave around a stick of intoxicating incense when interviewing victims' family members. Instead, she wears a structured green jacket over a crisp collared shirt in her neatly arranged Lake Oswego office. She's not a sorceress, but she's also not an ordinary person. McQuary is a woman of intuition.
McQuary is among nearly eighty thousand psychics in the United States and part of the $2 billion psychic industry. Using her psychic gift to assist in solving crimes, however, makes her exceptionally unusual.
She began showing psychic abilities at age eighteen after a fall from a horse left her in a coma for three months. She worked as a nurse for the first part of her life before transitioning from giving private readings to coworkers to starting a psychic consultation business in 1984.
"I have a responsibility to listen to the universe," she says.
McQuary has amassed more than two hundred cases in her twenty-nine years as a psychic detective. Murder and missing person cases dating as far back as the '80s and '90s are tightly packed into two large filing cabinets. McQuary's blue eyes scan the thick manila folders as she thumbs over police detective names scribbled in illegible handwriting.
"You'd be surprised how many detectives really believe in this work," she says.
Lee met McQuary during a murder investigation in 1986.
When the two got together for lunch to review the case, McQuary listed thirty details that she had intuitively gathered from the report, including information regarding the involvement of the murderer's brother with the burial of the body.
McQuary had also accurately pinpointed the burial location of the victim.
"[McQuary] is just going to look at the bad guy a little differently.
While the couple typically works separately and never openly discusses any active cases, McQuary may, at times, ask her husband about a bullet trajectory or an autopsy report. Lee has also occasionally used McQuary for her fresh viewpoint on cases.
"I don't feel that I have solved cases; I believe I've contributed to them," says McQuary. "When I'm out there in the field slogging around with the police or the family and we find the body, I feel like I've walked hand-in-hand with God."

With each case, McQuary requires a name, the victim's photo, and a map of the area where he or she was last seen. She often visits the site to better understand the physical energy of the case, and has traveled across the country for cases in almost all fifty states. Her involvement with these cases has led to appearances on Portland's KATU News, Court TV's Psychic Detective, and Larry King Live, among other television and news outlets.
McQuary didn't charge for her investigative assistance for twenty-one years, until her TV appearance on Larry King Live triggered hundreds of case requests. While she has never charged law enforcement for her services, she requests a one-time $250 fee for private clients, who are often involved families seeking more information about their cases. If travel becomes necessary, the client is responsible for any additional expenses.
Though McQuary has built her career around convincing nonbelievers, there are many who are skeptical of her extraordinary occupation.
McQuary doesn't mind a skeptic. In addition to assisting with investigative cases in her spare time, she has spent the past thirty years building her business, Management by Intuition. The cozy Native American-inspired office offers psychic consultations ranging from past-life regressions to a technique that uses hypnosis to recover potential memories of past lives. The consultations last thirty minutes to one hour.
For client Laura D'Quatro, a session with McQuary is better than therapy.
"She doesn't tell me what to do," says D'Quatro, who has been a client of McQuary's since 2007.
While McQuary's abilities don't turn off at the end of the workweek, she prefers to maintain a low profile during her time off. "I'm not 'Suzie Psychic' 24/7," she says. By avoiding crowds and prolonged eye contact with others, McQuary can usually limit overly personal connections with strangers. Eye contact can induce especially intense connections, she explains.
Despite the desire to occasionally turn off her abilities, McQuary regularly practices listening to her own energy. In fact, her intuitive guidance led to her discover she had breast cancer seven years ago. After waking up one morning, McQuary sensed something was wrong with her breast despite having no symptoms. She made a medical appointment that same day where they concluded there was no lump. When she demanded further investigation through an MRI, they were surprised to discover that her intuition was correct. McQuary was diagnosed with breast cancer.
"I found out later that I'd had it for twenty-five years," says McQuary, who quickly underwent treatment (including five surgeries). She now lives cancer-free.
Psychic abilities may be mentally exhausting at the end of each day, but McQuary has not yet exhausted her career. This year marks a big move to Central Oregon with her retired husband, and she will eventually close her Lake Oswego office. McQuary's clients, however, will continue to communicate with her through phone sessions.
"As long as I am coherent and accurate I will be doing this work," says McQuary.
