Aeson Knight discovered his gift of clairvoyance at an early age and since 1998 is helping people get the information they need. In this special interview for MysticMag we asked Aeson about his journey, what are the topics that come up more and the challenges that social media bring.
Check out the interview below!
My first question is about the information that you have been a clairvoyant since age 3. Was that a burden for you in some stage of life or do you always look at that naturally?
I don’t think that was a burden for me. I think it is more of a burden for people around me, you know, I grew up in the time when it’s like, shut up, kid, go back outside, what are you doing inside? That type of thing. So, I think it was more of a burden for the people around me until I’ve learned that we don’t talk about that. You can get your thoughts, “your imagination” is what my mother and grandmother said. But no, it has never been really that hard, for me it’s been a real joy.
When did you start to help anyone, and people started to search for you?
I would say my first proper reading was around age eighteen. My grandmother had invited a lady over for tea. That’s the old way of saying they were coming for readings. And she messed up: she invited two of them. So, she said: You’re going to have tea in the living room with this one, and I’m going to have tea with this one in the dining room. And I’m like, okay.
And that’s when I started reading people more professionally, not just like your friends.
And it started right away, or it was hard to start?
I think that reading was terrifying for me. The customer loved it! It was hard trying to stay in focus. To talk about work, to talk about their marriage, to talk about jobs, and at that time I was using the Tarot – and I still use the tarot – but it gets very complex at times when there’s things that they need to know.
And at that time, it was really difficult for me to go “they’re not caring that they need to go back to school because in five years the mines are going to shut down.” They want to know if they are going to be able to feed the family this month.
You needed a fine tuning?
I needed fine tuning. I was very much all over the board. It was fun. And I see it so much now in my students when they start learning tarot and start working with their gifts and they’ll be all over the board. And I’m like “enough, slow it down, take it down.”
What are the topics and aspects of life that people are interested in? Did that change a lot since you started or is it basically the same?
I think it’s basically the same. There are nuances like “he likes this girl on social media”. There’s the modern life nuances that have occurred, but it’s basically the same. They’re looking for guidance, they’re looking for information in their life, they’re looking for the right partner, they’re looking for the right job, they’re looking for the right stability, that type of thing. So, it’s basically the same stuff, just a little different.
You mentioned social media, I found it very interesting one of your blog posts: “Is social media killing your relationship?”. In your opinion, do you observe in your readings that social media anxiety? Do people complain about that because they can’t handle it? Is it a common thing to you?
It’s a common thing, very much a common thing. And it’s because it’s a new thing. We now have a generation that doesn’t remember a time without social media, and that adds into. The human experience has not updated to get used to that continual contact. Now they may not use the word “social media anxiety”, but it’s there. You know, “do they like me?” You know, for especially more feminine energy. It’s like, do these people like me, why are they doing this? Why are they posting this?
And for the guys, they’re still working on that need to look popular, “I need to look impressive to keep her attention”.
In your website you mentioned the complexities of love, that you understand. What are those complexities that people from all over the world still can’t figure out?
A lot of the complexities are “Am I doing the right thing?”, “Are we meant to be together?”, “Does he like me?”, “We’ve been married for 10 years, but does he actually like me or is he doing this out of responsibility?”. But there’s a lot of complexities, and in our life now there’s a lot more stress than 30 years ago when it comes to relationships.
There are a lot more complexities in relationships because, it’s a lot more common ethical, not-monogamy, a lot more common for polyamory, and there’s a lot of hardwiring that people have to work with. And they don’t have that social backup of those few close niche friends that they like, because their best friend may be two time zones away. That’s a whole different type of friendship.
20 years ago, bicoastal couples were very rare, maybe five or ten of them, and it was only for short periods of time. Now we’re seeing more bicoastal couples because airfare is cheap. And, you know, one’s got to be here for work and one’s working remotely on site here. So, all that just kind of tags in there.
For me it’s like looking at a spider web of a relationship because there are so many crossings. And our human experience has not cut off to that.
Talking about your direct style: did someone complain about that because they weren’t ready for your message?
There are three different types of readers in this industry. There is what I call the fluffy reader. If you come for good guidance, I don’t think they’re doing any harm, but they’re not going to look and go “Dude’s not into you, why aren’t you talking to the other one?”
They’re going to try to work on that type of thing. That’s fine because they have their place. Then there’s what I call the New England reader, and they’re very much a British reader where you just sit down, and they just start throwing cards. It may make great sense to you, it may be like they’re out, they’re out in the bushes, in the ballpark, but it’s having to do with like 5-10 years down the road or whatever. It eventually will happen.
And then there’s me and I used to call myself the ER psychic, and then the legal got on to me, so now it’s just direct answers because I want to come in, I want to address your questions and your concern, if there’s extra information, you’re getting them, but I don’t want to be talking about a job that you’re not going to see for two years if you don’t give a darn about it, you know?
You can look at my feedback, every site’s got at least, one star or two star or three star, because they come to me and they think they’re going to get sweet, nice, lovable “It’s okay, honey”, and it’s like, no, you went through this phone, you violated his privacy, he stopped talking to you for three months, and you’re lucky if he talks to you again!
It’s not an ego massage.
It’s not, it’s not my job, that doesn’t fix anything.
Do you have a special message for our audience in these challenging times?
Take some time for yourself, understand that this challenging time it’s just the experience for now. It’s like a class, we’re returning back to this very busy work life and the world has gotten started back up, but that time really taught, should have taught you.
Slow down to take at least 30 minutes a day where you are not working, you are not wearing any of your hats, you’re just focusing on you, and you’ll see a change in your life.
