Psychic Reader Profile: Anthony
Psychic - Tarot - Spiritualist Medium - Crystal ball - Water and Wax stick readings
Hi I’m Anthony. I’m a spiritualist and third generation medium. I’m also a psychic, tarot reader, pendulum dowser, crystal ball/water and wax reader and also take stick readings (for anyone unsure of what that is, someone gives me a stick and I give them a reading from it, you would be surprised how accurate the readings are!). I love to explore different ways of divination and scrying and I am fascinated by the history and philosophy of spiritualism and divination. In my spare time I spend time with my wife and (small) child, love researching my family tree, enjoy cooking - especially new dishes, enjoy trips away and I am slowly writing a novel.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
Years before I ever started to give readings I was told that part of the reason I am here is to give advice and to help others. When I am giving guidance I feel at one with myself, with spirit, and sometimes with the questioner. It can be an amazing feeling, the connection with spirit. A healers job is to be a channel, or medium, for spirit, whereas a mediums job is to be a healer, to heal through the messages they give. To give advice to people at a low ebb, to help illuminate a direction for them and give advice without judgment is the most important thing about what I do. Recently I was on platform in a local hall with a psychic. With the first message I gave spirit shone love on them, through me, and that love was so strong it was the main thing I felt for the next three and a half hours until the end of the evening. Readings can be amazing, the messages you give, stories you hear and feelings you encounter.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
In some ways I am a typical Aries; I’m positive, passionate, stubborn and impulsive. I’m also very loyal and enjoy new experiences. I often come across as confident, strong willed and enjoy meeting new people. I do believe in star signs, although not the general readings in the paper. I have had a personal reading from a very well known astrologer - and he was spot on with almost everything.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
I have been aware of having spirit around me since I was a toddler. When I started playgroup I had to be taken home as I hid under the table, refusing to come out, complaining that there were ‘too many dead people in the room’. I am strongly clairsentient. As a child my parents had paintings of my (long deceased) grandparents on the wall and I could feel both of them in the room, I was able to say where they were, how tall they were, what they were wearing, how they felt etc. I also have a strong psychic link with family and friends. In my early teens I had readings from two Tarot readers who both told me that I had ‘the gift’. My Mum bought a set of Tarot cards and a book to teach herself how to read. She would lay the cards out in her spread, open her book in readiness - and I would annoy her by turning the cards over and quickly, card by card, announcing what each card meant and giving the other person a potted, on the spot reading from what I felt the cards were saying to me....she would then turn them back over and start her reading. Twenty minutes and much page turning later she would finish....and her reading would be the same as mine.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
There are several. I remember being on platform once and telling someone that they had just been through a heart wrenching split which they were slowly adjusting to. She started to cry. I remember reassuring her and telling her that she was, step by step, going to find balance in her life and move on. I also realised that it was a last minute decision to be there that night but she felt she needed guidance. I told her that her mother's mother was with her, and that she should feel her presence right behind her. She was giving her a red rose. At the end of the message she asked if I could tell her any more about the messenger. There wasn’t much I could tell her. I felt her grandmother saying not to mind her, it was the message that was important, all I could say was that she was dressed all in blue. She confirmed the message, including parts I haven’t mentioned here, before telling me that she often felt her grandmother behind her and that she was a no nonsense, down to earth person who was buried in a blue dress with a red rose.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I have a great deal of life experience. I spent 10 years traveling and performing as an actor before training to be a teacher. I understand how to give a reading to someone, the sensitivity that’s needed in order to make the reading a positive experience. I have also worked in care, a very humbling experience. As well as dealing with doctors, emergency services, psychiatrists and other professionals caring for those who were dying, and their grieving relatives, taught me a lot about empathy, sympathy and something about the nature of life.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
All I ask of anyone is to be open to the experience and remember not to give too much information away. It’s my job to give you a reading, not for you to tell me all about your self and your troubles! Remember, I will not tell you anything 'nasty' - and I am not here to be a 'fortune helper'- I will tell you about yourself, your situation and give you an honest reading. Another thing to remember is to relax, enjoy the experience and I hope you will take something away with you.
