What do you say to people who think you're lying about speaking to the dead?
Another people says oh you're lying you can't speak to the dead and you know i use to that comment because my father is a....... cynic you'd ever mate he just simply does not believe and that's father and I'll say to them you know some people half of believe that this can happen, let them have it, let them have to comfort on the closure that they need, you may find it in the different way, so those.......in the cynic in sidewalk I can never trace my mind unless I've been through it, and I say to them as long as you have believe? as long that you know the words that strives for living homely in this world and it doesn't matter what you believe.
What do you say to skeptics who say psychics are just trying to make money?
I get a lot of criticism over people, over myself doing readings for money, but it's like anybody. A musician has a gift of creating music, they still have to live. I have a gift of helping those who need it, I still have to live. And at the end of the day, if I had to work as well, as a day time job and do another, you know, maybe bread and butter job if you want to put it that way, I wouldn't have time to help those who really need it and who really would gain so much from using my gift. So it's a really tough question and it's really hard, it was really hard for me in the beginning to actually put a price on my readings. But I had to because I had to make a decision. Do I want to stay in my boring daytime job or do I really want to give somebody closure and help and comfort? And unfortunately I will have to charge them because I have to live.
What is the difference between a gut feeling and a premonition?
The difference between a gut feeling and a premonition, it's like there's a fine line. A gut feeling is our own higher intuition saying, "yes we should do this" or "no we shouldn't", and we should always to that because that's our higher self. A premonition is where we see something so clearly in our mind of an incident that is going to happen and we just know it's real. And in a premonition often it's like having that deja vu moment where we know we've been here before; we know it's going to happen. So, you know, the gut feeling is making us aware, the actual premonition is showing us the whole picture.
What is the difference between coincidence and paranormal ability?
To me, when some asks me, what's the difference between a coincidence and having a paranormal ability, I don't really feel there's much difference. I feel that things happen for a reason. Whether you have a psychic ability or an awareness, fate has a hand in everything that we do, and some people would say they're coincidences. For those to happen, you don't actually have to have a psychic ability.
Are angels real?
Personally I believe they are because I have had an experience where I have asked for an angelic force to come near me, and it has come near me. And also in a meeting which was incredible, I said to my client, the angels are around you. And as we were talking and out of nowhere, and there could not have been any way that this could have happened, the tiniest whitest feather just floated down between us. To me, that was angels.
Do Heaven and Hell really exist?
I personally don't believe that there is two places, like a heaven and a hell. I believe that there is a level that we all go to and I liken it to a department store. We all go into the loading bay and we all then we decide what we need to do and how we've worked our lives on this earth plane and then we go up to various different levels that we have to go to. And then there are those who didn't quite step up to the mark on this earth plane and they stay mainly at that loading bay, so very earth bound. Some would say that is the hell. Personally, I think we all just go to the same place
Are all ghosts angry?
I, first of l have to tell you what my belief is with ghosts. My belief on the ghost level is where that energy, as we're all energy, it hasn't actually crossed over to the other side. It's in that little vortex where it doesn't want to leave this world, it doesn't want to go into the next, and that's what I believe a ghost is. If you talk of spirit, as in a spirit that's crossed over, that's spirits never really angry. It may have to have a look over of things in their life, but they're never angry. For me they're not. A ghost, as in stuck in that plane, yes I believe they can be angry. They don't want to let go of this physical world, and they could be angry for many reasons, to find out who murdered them, to help them to protect their loved ones. There are many reason they're angry.
Can pets be spirits?
I always get asked this question many times, whether pets can be in spirit. And there's been many occasions where I've actually said to my client, "You have a dog, hold on," and the dog's jumped up on my lap and the spirit of the animal is around. So, absolutely, pets can be spirits.
Are there different kinds of psychic awareness?
To me, there's different kinds of psychic awareness. We have healers. We all use intuition to work out what that person needs healing. There are tarot readers. And again, yes you can read the cards, but your own intuition comes into this. There's the psychic. There's also the mediums. There's the crystal healers. So there's many facets to having a spiritual gift.
Are there limitations of my psychic awareness?
People ask me if there are limitations to psychic awareness and yes, there are. Let's look like a singer. We all can sing. Whether we can hold the tune or not is a different matter. You get the ones that can sing in the bathtub but won't go on the karaoke stage and they have an ability that they can't quite get in tune. Then you have the karaoke singer, if they train it they can probably be the pop singer. Then you have the pop singer that could train it to be the opera singer. It's all about training and honing in. And so yes, we have a limitation to our ability.
Can I harness my psychic awareness to make things better?
Everyone can develop their psychic ability and their awareness. Whether they can make their life better is a different matter. I get asked that question, “Can I use my ability to make my life better? Well, you can certainly enhance your life and trust your gut instincts and your intuition to therefore make sure you're on the right path. But after all, we all have free will. If you decide to go against your gut instincts, then you'll find your own free will and that's maybe sometimes when mistakes happen.
What can interfere with my psychic awareness?
There are many things in life that can damper our psychic awareness. One can be our emotional state of mind. Other can be a food intake. You know if we eat meat, it can lower our vibrations. We can also have negative people, negative influences that will try and take us off onto a different pathway. Often cell phones and electronics can lower our vibrations also. So there are a lot of factors in life that can really dampen it.
Can someone control my mind with their psychic abilities?
Many people ask me if I can read their mind or if I can control them, if I'm giving them a reading. And the answer is 'No'! We all have free will. It's up to the client decide whether or not they're going to take what I'm saying. So I can't read anyones mind and I can't manipulate them at all.
What is the difference between a psychic and a medium?
It's a very common question that's asked - what's the difference between a physic and a medium. Well, every medium is a psychic but not every psychic is a medium. A psychic can generally work from your energy, from your aura, and tell you what is going to be happening in the future and give you advice, clarification, and guidance. But a medium, we speak to the other side, we speak to those that are no longer with us. And obviously, if that spirit wants us to give you advice on your life, then great. But what you have to remember is if Dad has passed away and he's giving you the lottery numbers and actually Dad never even won anything come the lottery, you really have to really wonder if he's giving you good advice so, you always have to take it with a pinch of salt.
