I have always had experiences of people opening up to me; even strangers would come up to me and share profoundly personal stories about themselves. I am deeply empathic and have always been sensitive to energies. When I started to become aware that I was feeling things that others around me weren't I began reading extensively to try to understand what was going on and in doing so I discovered that I had a natural affinity towards astrology and tarot. I felt like I finally had a way of understanding certain aspects of my personality which seemed out of character in comparison to my family and friends. I have read many books and attended workshops and courses on these subjects and they never fail to fascinate me. Discovery is an ongoing process and is something I will always enjoy doing. Having the ability to share this passion with others in order to help them is a wonderful blessing.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I enjoy talking to people from all walks of life as it allows me to have a greater view of what is going on in the world and see things from other perspectives. We may all be different but fundamentally we all need and want similar things. We are all human! I am always reminded that no matter how focused we are on what we want, we all have blind spots or things that are going on in our unconscious. The Tarot is so important to me because it brings these things into the light for us. The cards will help you to see things that are going on which you may not have allowed to surface to your consciousness yet. Helping people to see the bigger picture in a caring and sensitive way so that they can make better decisions in their lives is what gives me the most satisfaction when giving a reading.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I'm definitely a typical freedom loving humanitarian Aquarian but there are always other aspects at play in everyone's sign. Until I discovered that I had Leo as my moon sign (which explained a lot!) could I fully accept the dramatic, emotional side of my personality. My sun and moon signs being polar opposites of the horoscope, often leads me to feeling at odds with myself but having this self-awareness has made everything in my life so much easier and enjoyable to deal with. I also have Gemini Rising so I have the 'gift of the gab' and have always had jobs where communication and reading in between the lines is key so I can get to the root of the matter at hand. The Truth will set you Free!
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
During my late teens and early adulthood I just knew that there was something different about how I read people. I could look into their eyes or listen to their voice and I could empathize with them on a deeper level than most. I didn't know what to do to with this and looking for answers I discovered the Tarot. I went to visit a well-known respected Tarot author in Dublin for a reading on my 21st birthday and when I entered the room he just smiled at me and we sat and chatted and he asked me why I was there. When I told him I was looking for answers to how I was feeling he laughed and said that I already knew the answers. He said he could give me a reading but I could have done it myself. I was confused but something felt so right from there on wards and I didn't try to make logical sense of it, I trusted that the cards had found me and they have never let me down since. I went on to study with him and began my personal journey of understanding human nature using tarot as a tool.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
Every time I guide someone through a reading I am amazed and delighted at how these messages can be conveyed to a person through ancient symbolism. One reading that I will always remember was with a good friend of mine whose relationship with who he/ we all thought was his soulmate had deteriorated and he was beyond heartbroken. The message that he was given that day was of clear optimistic reassurance to such an extent that we were both quite shocked by how powerful it was. We hugged and cried and were so thankful and reassured by the message. It still touches me today. He has gone on to meet someone else and is in a longstanding loving relationship with a wonderful woman who he loves dearly.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
Most of my previous 'day jobs' have been in customer service roles especially over the telephone. I am extremely comfortable speaking to people over the phone and making a personal connection is something that comes naturally to me. I am a good listener and I allow space for silence and reflection where necessary. Being fascinated with people and always striving to understand human nature I have also studied iridology which is the analysis of the iris of the eye. It is a superb way of looking into the windows of the soul to discover predisposed and environmental physical as well as emotional issues which were what I focused on to help people discover their hidden potential. I also practiced reflexology as a way to release any blockages in our energies and is something I believe every human should benefit from.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
Be open-minded. All of the answers are within you already; the cards will give you an oversight in case you are not seeing the full picture. They are there to show us our shadow side and blind spots, sides of us that we may not necessarily want to admit to. In my opinion seeing every side of the coin is always beneficial so we can make better choices for ourselves and free ourselves from energies that no longer serve us. Knowledge that leads us to release our potential and therefore lead more fulfilling happier lives. I will not discuss and health related issues
Good reader. Spot on and to the point. Thanks Maybel x
