I’m a reader?! I didn’t even believe in these things!

I’m a reader?! I didn’t even believe in these things!

When I was about 14 I went to a fortune teller at a theme park. A friend and I did it just as a joke. She took one look at my tea-cup full of leaves and gave me a peculiar look which I just shook off. She gave us our readings and we left. I went home and wrote down a few things that she told me and as time went by I realised that many of the things had come true. I kind of shrugged it off as self-fulfilling prophesies and thinking “Well if you are going to look for the connections you will find them”.

My first ever reading was with a lady who read tea leaves

About a decade and a half later I sought out a psychic again. I was in the aftermath of one of the most excruciating heartbreaks that I have ever experienced, and I reached out to her as if I was grasping at straw. One of the first things she asked me is “Why are you scared of your spirituality?” I was there for a love reading and had no interest in discussing my spirituality. At the time I was a yoga teacher- trained in Nepal. I wore a Raktu seed mala wrapped around my wrist and chanted mantra’s while I did yoga. I was spiritual AF!

As time went by some of the things that she said to me resonated within. Through working on healing my heartache I was delving deeper and deeper into my soul. At the time I believed that I was a Twin Flame. A unique soul who came to earth to explore unconditional love and to inspire that in others. This fueled me digging deeper and deeper – inspired by the promising allure that one day, once I am whole I would re-unite with the other part of my soul- enticingly packaged in a blond-haired, blue-eyed boy. On a side note, as time progressed the label fell away, as did my unshakable belief in being a Twin flame. Now, if anything, I would label myself as an empath, an intuitive, a clairsentient and a clairvoyant.

I am an empath, an intuitive, a clairsentient and clairvoyant

As I explored more and more of my spirituality I became aware of gifts and abilities that were unique to me. All my life I knew I was different, that I saw and experienced the world different to other people. I had this intuitive knowing about things – usually in the form of a warning- but I never really paid attention to it. While knowing I was different, I thought that everyone has this intuition.

On my journey I found a group of online psychics. They have a chat room and some practice evenings where everyone can join in and read each other. As I slowly came out of my shell I started to realise that the images I see and the words I hear and the messages that I get to give to people don’t arise from my own mind. That they come from something so much bigger than myself… and that they are often exactly what people need to hear. As I began to pay attention I started having dreams- vivid dreams that gave me insight into my current situations, but also prophetic dreams that hinted at things that were to come or happen to me.

All of this gently guided me to pay better attention. To listen at the whispers and notice the images that flashes through my mind. They weren’t just random thoughts but things that either I or someone else needed to hear.

But it sounds so crazy… doesn’t it?

Yes, I know. I know how it sounds… I hear things, I see things, I just know things… without having any real explanation for them in the physical world. I read people’s energies and I can feel what they are feeling. Heck, I’m even using cards to help with my readings. Devout Christian 15-year-old-me would have wanted to banish the evil out of 34-year-old-me for even thinking of using tarot cards.

My spiritual journey had evolved to such a point that I could no longer ignore who I really am. The universe kept pushing me to explore my skills and delve deeper and learn and grow more and more to the point where I was not only able to accept them, but to where I was pushed to offer these services to others. How could I know the things and not share them in order for others to heal?

All the answers are inside of you

It is true, each of us have some form of intuition, a deeper knowing of things. We just don’t always know how to be open to them. We don’t always know how to pay attention to them. We also don’t always know how to distinguish our intuition from all the other thoughts racing through our minds mingling with all the conditioning thoughts that society has drummed into our psyche’s.

Sometimes you need a little guidance. A voice that speaks through the fog of our minds. And that is what I am aiming to do. To help others along their path. To provide clarity and healing and a safe space for exploration and growth. Because we are all here to become the best versions of ourselves.
