Medium Adelita pic.jpg

Adelita Smith

Adelita is a natural born Psychic Medium and has always been sensitive to energies. Her first encounter with Spirit happened when she was only 4 years old. Throughout her life she tried to keep her abilities closed off, however Spirit had other plans for her. She has always felt a pull towards the paranormal and has been actively ghost hunting for more than 15 years. Those adventures have taken her to New Orleans, The Stanley Hotel, The Queen Mary, Tombstone and many more journeys throughout the southwest. In 2015 she published her first poetry book and shortly after that tragedy struck her family.  She experienced a true “rude awakening” with the death of her beloved son, Andrew. This changed her life path completely. Falling to her knees, her heart broke open and she realized that she could no longer deny or fend off her gifts. She began questioning her purpose, her own life and everything in general. She started looking for answers by meditating, following signs and going deeper within. Also during this time, she became a certified Usui/Holy Fire Reiki master and teacher. Her healing birthed her second book, “Collateral Damage” that was published after her son Andrew’s suicide. Adelita has gifted all of the profits from the books first printing to “Military Moms”, the Lake Havasu City, AZ chapter. She owns her own business in the Phoenix area however her healing gifts have reached clients all around the world. Adelita loves to help others and often gifts her reiki sessions to the sick.  She provides closure and peace by delivering clear and evidential messages from souls who’ve graduated from this physical life. She is a fun and compassionate soul, she loves her family, friends and all animals. For more information about her services & books please visit her website:

Joining us from the beautiful land of red rock, Sedona AZ is world-renowned harpist Peter Sterling.  

His career as a recording artist began in 1994 with his first album, Harp Magic, released on the World Disc label. Success came almost immediately as the recording was nominated for the Best Instrumental Album award by NAIRD (now A2IM), an organization for independent musicians. His acclaim continued and grew exponentially in the 2000s with multiple nominations from the prestigious website New Age Reporter/Zone Music Reporter, including several nominations for Album of the Year. His most recent recognition came in 2020 when he won the Hollywood Music and Media Award for Best New Age song. And also, in 2022 winning the Gold COVR Visionary Award for his album The Winding Way.

Besides his music, Peter is also a stained glass and visual artist and has been since before he began playing the harp. His beautiful art work decorates the interior of his Sedona house (including a gallery of his Portals of Light crystal alchemy paintings) which he shares with his son 7-year old son Micah (Peter is a stay at home father and loves it!). In the little spare time he has, he also conducts Jeep tours of Sedona’s canyons for private clients and he is also heavily involved with the growing CBD hemp industry. Even with such a full plate as he has, Peter found time to write a book, Hearing the Angels Sing, and he also conducts workshops on the science of sound healing and sacred geometry.

When he is asked “What is the best part of being a musician?” Peter answers “Creating music that touches the heart and soul of listeners…bring[ing] peace and healing to people all over the world. I love receiving letters about how my music has touched peoples’ lives.” Peter looks back at his path to the present now and humbled at his worldwide success.
