Describe your psychic ability: I'm a medium and clairvoyant. I tune into and read people's energies. I also read places; I walk into a room and describe events that occurred there. As a medium I am able to communicate with those who have passed. I also read jewelry.
When did you realize you had this gift: When I was 10, I had my first vision. A spirit that knocked on my bedroom door came to tell me I would be hearing about someone's passing away.
I was intrigued but also terrified at the same time. Luckily, I had a close friend who is a well-known psychic, and she taught me the basics of receiving energy and translating information.
Does anyone else in your family have these gifts? If so, who? Both my mum and my sister are very telepathic.
Are any of your friends or family skeptics? I don’t really attract skeptics, so thankfully, no.
What are your sentiments toward skeptics? I feel they are afraid because the information is too powerful for them. Many people find it hard to believe something exists when they can't actually touch or see it. That's why I'm so glad we filmed this show. It demonstrates some great examples of psychic ability—it's proof that our gift is real.
Have you ever used your gifts to help people? Explain: Yes, I use it in my songwriting mostly. I receive messages and premonitions of events and channel them into my songs, especially via lyrics. I am often told that when people hear my music they feel a certain song was written especially for them, and that it empowered them somehow. It's an incredible feeling. I also enjoy helping family members connect with their loved ones who have passed. It helps them greatly in the grieving process.
What's the best part about having such a gift? The insight it brings. The wonderful people and souls I meet daily. The happiness and inner peace you bring to someone when doing a reading, and showing them they are on the right path. It's a basic humanitarian passion of mine to help people, especially the underdog. So when I, through a reading, my music or stage presence, touch their lives I feel I am fulfilling my life's purpose.
What's the worst part about having such a gift? The great responsibility that comes with it, such as having access to information that is very painful and taking on someone's pain as I recreate the steps of a crime scene. But the rewards of helping someone greatly outweigh any negatives.
