An interesting article on the intersection of entrepreneurialism and intuition! We get a lot of questions about the best psychics, mediums and intuitive’s in San Francisco, and many of those asking are inquiring for entrepreneurial reasons. (something we don’t get quite as much from other areas) Here is a great article on some of the best psychics and intuitives in San Fran and how their work intersects with those doing work in the financial fields as well!
Nicki Bonfilio is one of those psychics. “I have many clients from Salesforce, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Zynga, Microsoft, and Cisco,” she says. We’re sitting in her office in the Mission. The room is small and luminous, with white shag carpet, and white furniture, and a view of Twin Peaks glazed with white light. The decor is multicultural, as though set-dressed by a producer uncertain of her audience: a Buddha, framed pictures of the Orient, a glass Anubis. Nobody wears shoes in here.
At 45, Bonfilio has the demeanor of someone recently deprogrammed from a cult. She’s serene but formal, and lithe from years of serious yoga. Her white cotton shirt matches the furniture. She refers to herself as an intuitive rather than a psychic, suggesting that the latter evokes images of “a crystal ball and a palm in the window.” Hers is no amateur storefront.
“I’m a seer, and I’m also clairaudient, which means I can hear things on a different level,” she says. In other words, she can read your mind.
When Bonfilio was 5, she says, an apparition of St. Francis visited her in the backyard of her family’s Mill Valley home. That kicked off a childhood procession of phantom colors and 3D shapes levitating in midair. When she was 13, she experienced something like “an explosion from the inside out” — a firework in the brain that uncorked her extrasensory gifts.
“It was like going from slight color to HD,” Bonfilio says. “Everything was suddenly so vivid and clear.”
