Psychic Reader Profile: Lavinia
Clairvoyant, healer, tarot card & crystals
I have been a healer and clairvoyant for as long as I can remember. As a child I accepted that not everyone possesses the same gifts and instincts as I do. I received my first deck of Tarot cards on my sixteenth birthday and it was with friends and family that I started my predictions. My family are Pagan and there are several naturally gifted Tarot readers and healers amongst us.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
When people call on me there are times when I have a lot of information to impart which helps and very occasionally very little or unclear messages, but whatever the situation, I never temper the truth or change the information. Just because the message seems unclear at the time of the reading doesn’t make it any the less true and it eventually comes to light. I relay the messages earnestly whether it is good or something they may not want or be ready to hear. I do not fabricate anything just for the sake of it. I prefer honesty and because of this, clients have been coming to me for many years, from all walks of life, different religions and nationalities. Nothing gives me more pleasure and satisfaction than to see a frown disappear. Confusion replaced with knowledge, relief and understanding. Sometimes if a loved one has departed without the time to say goodbye, a message can give them much comfort and even closure. I often receive emails six months down the line saying the information I had given them had given them insight and provided clear direction in their time of confusion. I feel blessed to have such a gift and give my time generously to it.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
As a typical Piscean our ruling planet is Neptune, Pisceans are renowned as being the most intuitive and psychic of all the other signs of the zodiac. Generous and emotional, our psychic abilities and intuition are guided by our emotions. I am extremely sensitive and loyal and I feel attracted to people with severe problems and who desperately need help. I am there to offer guidance and support. I am so empathic that my need to help make things better for other people can feel just as important to me as it is to them. As Pisces is the sign of mysticism, mystery and the spiritual unknown, I accept that I must live in both the real world and the spiritual.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
When I was very young, perhaps around five years old, I can recall asking my Grandmother who the lady is that sometimes comes to stand by her side and smiles at me. She casually replied ‘my mother’. My grandmother also has a strong clairvoyant gift but was nevertheless surprised when I said ‘I love the name Isabelle’. She had never told me her name, I just knew it.
The experience that affected me the most was when I was twelve years old, on holiday in Spain with my mother and sister when I suddenly had the most overwhelming feeling that something was seriously wrong. I climbed out of the pool and ran straight to my mum. By now I was sobbing and she was clearly shaken by how distraught I was. It wasn’t until I was trying to get my words out to tell her what I was feeling that I knew what was wrong. I told her that my I could hear my best friend crying and that she needed me. She listened, took me directly into the hotel reception and asked if we may use the telephone. A neighbour answered their phone and told her that there had been a tragic accident and that my friend’s father had been killed. I’d never felt so far away from home.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I was asked booked to attend a ladies day at an affluent lady’s house as part of the entertainment; she had hired waitresses, massage therapists and beauticians too. I was booked for the evening and by the time I’d arrived, the ladies were rather merry. The first two readings went very well indeed - both knew exactly what I was talking about and were raving about their reading. The third lady was a lawyer and incredibly sceptical but decided to join in “for a bit of a laugh”. Her reading was astounding, yet she claimed not to have a clue what on earth I was talking about. Her cards indicated she was to travel to reach her dream job and that she was on the cusp of meeting royalty and embarking upon a successful new adventure. She openly laughed and said it was fun but she ‘wasn’t going to hold her breath’. The very next day she was given the opportunity to do just that, she had been head hunted by an American law firm whose clients are the rich, famous and indeed royalty. To receive an email asking for another reading straight away is the reason I do what do.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
Apart from being very intuitive, I also have a degree in counselling, which fits perfectly and the abilities I gained have given me the confidence to support people who are at a point where they are searching for answers. Combining counselling skills with Tarot reading and delivering clairvoyant messages to people in a compassionate way is why my clients feel deeply cared for and appreciate they that I empathise with them on all levels.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
Before considering a Tarot reading, you must first ask yourself if you are ready to learn what is truly going on for you right now. Is now the right time to highlight the aspects of your life you may not be fully aware of, such as what influences are acting upon you, understand what conscious and subconscious control you are exerting on your life and how these factors may manifest your future. Are you ready to gain a fresh perspective on your life or specific situation? The Tarot is a beautiful analysis tool for getting a clearer, detached view of what you are doing right now and where you are heading.
