Psychic Reader Profile: Esme
I am a natural empath, with the paranormal ability to perceive the mental or emotional state of my client’s. I have known that I have a psychic gift since earliest childhood and I have been helping people, with the aid of tarot cards, for fifteen years. Having sought guidance from a tarot reader myself many years previously, I know the struggles that we all have in life to cope with all kinds of issues. I also know that by experience, tarot readers can reach out and enable others to overcome battles we ourselves have fought and won; gaining valuable insight from our clients as we do so. It is a mutual learning experience. Tarot reading allows me to do this and is a very special profession indeed.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I feel humbled and privileged to be able to help my clients by providing tarot readings. I notice my clients picking up the tools to open doors to their psyche and gain inspiration about their own unique life journey. I like giving readings to clients because it aids them to see an issue from another angle, and helps them look within themselves to find answers about the direction they should take.
I tell clients that tarot reading is "talking and being heard": being heard by myself, but also the tarot cards. It can be very rare that we will be able to really speak about our innermost self, and know that the person we speak to truly hears us. So tarot reader and client relationship is very special.
The tarot reading provides you with a “safe space” in which you are allowed to talk and feel comfortable enough to be yourself. You can be completely at ease with me as I will not judge you or make comparisons with anyone else; viewing your life through your lens, as closely as you choose to do so. I will be with you on the journey as you discover yourself and your strengths and weaknesses.
Feeling properly heard can be a first time experience for us as people. There is no rush, and trust is the cornerstone of my tarot sessions. I enjoy giving tarot readings to my clients because I feel privileged to help people while experiencing a piece their own unique energy. The relationships I build with my clients are certainly special.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
Scorpios have a native understanding of humans and often show psychic tendencies. Scorpio is the sign of many of life's mysteries: birth, sex, death, and regeneration. I am typical of a Scorpio in that I am very deep and intensely passionate. I have a penetrative mind and I am always trying to delve deeper and figure things out in every situation, using my probing mind and innate empathic skills. Like many Scorpios I am interested in the hidden mysteries of life: the occult, the paranormal, conspiracy theories and other types of similar unknown mysteries.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
I come from a long line of Psychics. I grew up with my mother and grandmother, who both specialised in runes, numerology, astrology and divination. It came as no surprise to my family when, at a very young age, I played with spirit children instead of the ‘normal’ children in my neighbourhood. As I grew up, my awareness of my gift was reinforced. I always 'feel' things very deeply and I have incredibly vivid dreams in which I am able to shape realities, see colours which I cannot give a conventional name to, and converse with spirits of the past. In daily life, I am able to feel a person's hostility or sadness even before they turn around for me to see their face. I can also feel sadness, anger and fear in buildings or homes just by stepping inside them.
While I've seen a few ghosts and sensed them a lot, I don't consider myself a medium.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I have had so many memorable experiences with clients, but one in particular stands out to me. I met with a longstanding client in person who was going through a time of personal crisis. She felt that her fiancé was growing cold towards her. She had recently had some jewellery stolen from her home which was deeply sentimental as it had belonged to her mother who had sadly passed away.
The cards told me to beware of a male figure, and there was a theme of betrayal in her spread. I saw an image of the jewels which were now in the hands of a female interloper and I advised her that the perpetrator was the person she trusted the most.
She later called me to say that her partner had been conducting an affair with his secretary and that she had seen this woman wearing her mother’s jewellery. At this stage we did another reading for her, and I sensed strongly that she was about to go on an amazing journey and that the love of her life was in fact somebody she knew already but she had overlooked.
Weeks later this lady had cancelled the wedding with her deceitful partner. She also quit her job as a banker in the City, and went travelling around South East Asia with her male best friend. On these travels the pair fell in love, and their bond was that much stronger due to the fact that they had known each other for so many years. I was later invited to the couple’s wedding which was humbling and highlighted the power of the cards to provide positive direction in people’s lives!
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I have worked as a reader for fifteen years. In this time I have appeared at Psychic suppers around the country and provided private readings to friends, family and long standing clients. Although a certificate doesn’t tell anyone how good I am as a reader, I have gained extensive certification in specialised areas such as crystal healing, oracle cards, meditation, past life regression, astral travelling, herbs, reiki, healing, angels and astrology. I can combine this knowledge with Tarot, adding to the credibility of my readings. I have also undertaken courses in “Intuitive Tarot” and “The Tarot for Personal Development”. Ongoing training and study is also a vital part of my art. I carry out structured, vigorous and disciplined self-study, as well as one to one sessions with a psychic mentor. In this way, I take much time to invest in myself and my art in order to help my clients.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
I hear too many stories from my clients of their previous bad experiences, so I do my best to show my clients my true abilities as a reader and that I read with empathy, compassion and integrity.
It is also important for a prospective client to not be afraid of hearing the absolute truth, in all its nuanced and contradictory power. The tarot can sometimes be direct and even provide answers which can be unwanted by the client.
The most important thing for a client to consider when sourcing a tarot reading is to find someone whom they feel they have a genuine connection with. This will allow them to enter into a truthful dialogue in a safe space where they can be honest about their situation and fears. I offer no judgement, only empathy.
I look forward to allowing the tarot to guide you on your personal journey and for you to see what other realities and experiences are out there for you!
