Every week The WiLD Bunch invites world-renowned Psychic, Gary Spivey ON-AIR to give LIVE readings to our listeners. This week we talked to Gary about his upcoming holiday retreat, healing loved ones, answering medical questions and finding a lost piece of jewelry. That and more on this week’s “Tapping in with Psychic Gary Spivey”.

He can also help clear energy that may be holding you back and help diagnose health issues. He can also answer questions about all facets of life. People all over the world gave Gary the nickname “The Modern Day Nostradamus” due to his uncanny ability to predict future catastrophic events.

How Can I Connect with Gary when he isn’t on the show?

Photo Ops With Santa In Southwest Florida

Photo Ops With Santa In Southwest Florida

Was there anything better as a child than preparing for your visit with Santa Claus?

We made our Christmas lists, checked them twice and prepared to sit on the jolly man’s lap as we listed off all of the things we wanted him to bring on Christmas.

Heck, we even dealt with the itchy and scratchy Christmas outfits we were forced to wear for the special day.

And how could we forget about the moms and dads and grandparents standing at the beginning of the sometimes hour long lines we waited in?  There they were in all of their glory trying to get us to smile so they could snap our picture with the big guy and have another Christmas memory.  Truly a wonderful tradition.

While visiting with Santa was exciting for most kids, there were some kiddos who left terrified and maybe a little traumatized.  They did make for pretty good pictures though.  Haha

So, where can you make these memories with Santa in Southwest Florida this holiday season?  Of course he will be at the local malls, but we’ve found some other fun events where he’ll make an appearance too!
