I’m Dr. Pamela M. Bruns. I’m a medium/spiritual counselor in the Buffalo, NY area. I have been blessed to be serving spirit for the past 7 years via readings and spiritual healings. While I’ve always had the gift, I didn’t recognize it and develop it until 8 years ago. I used to think I was just “lucky” little did I know I was just using my intuition to help guide me. I was formally trained at Fellowships of the Spirit in Lily Dale, NY as well as The University of Metaphysics in Sedona, AZ. I have followed an interesting path in my life. I began as a very strict, black/white type of person. I didn’t embrace the beautiful shades of gray that make the world so precious. I was very judgmental and extremely hard on myself as well as others. It took a huge tragedy in my life for me to wake up and realize there was more to life than I was exposing myself to.
The first part of my life was focused on success, both academically as well as in business. I received a BA in Communication and Psychology as well as a MS in Executive Leadership and Change. I also completed 55 credit hours toward a Ph.D. in Communication. I didn’t complete that Ph.D. as I was only doing it because I was supposed to, it didn’t feel right but at the time I didn’t understand why. I worked my way up the corporate ladder very quickly and just as quickly became bored, and decided to quit my job to start my own Consulting Business. It was during this time that I began my spiritual journey. I began to develop my spiritual gifts and found it to be very comfortable and enjoyed being able to serve spirit and help people at the same time. I always wanted to finish my Ph.D but the program just didn’t feel right, so I started over at the University of Sedona where I completed my Ph.D in Pastoral Counseling and Psychology. It was a perfect fit for my new direction in life.
In January of 2012, I had a breakthrough, I no longer wanted to make a dollar, I wanted to make a difference. I felt called to work with the Niagara County SPCA and run for the board of directors. I wanted to make a difference. Animals have been my passion most of my life. I’ve been a foster parent for years and all my animals 2 dogs, Stella and Sophie, and 5 cats Zoe, Fuzzy, Schammy, Abby and Magoo who are all rescues that wouldn’t be alive if I didn’t keep them. I had been offering animal readings for friends and family but it was just something I did on the side. In May of 2012 I decided that I had finally had enough of the corporate life and it was time to follow my heart to open Spiritually Rooted, a New Age Metaphysical Center to serve the community. I’m very excited for the opportunity. I hope you find “The Root” a safe, welcoming and positive place to visit. Bring your furry kids for readings and healings as well! I look forward to meeting you at the store!
