This week we had the pleasure of hearing from Psychic Alise from Psychic Wisdom Now. Alise is clairvoyant, clairsentient, clairaudient and a psychic empath. Her tools of choice are tarot and dowsing. She combines these with her intuitive gifts to give a well-rounded and complete psychic reading on love, career, spiritual growth and other topics of interest. In this interview she shares insights on her psychic journey and reading technique.
When did you first know that becoming a Psychic & Spiritualist Medium was your calling and how did you develop this gift?
I was born with my intuition and my psychic empathic abilities. I remember seeing my first spirit when I was 4 years old, and I “knew” things about people and places before they were confirmed to me. As a child and a teenager, I played around with my intuition like a game. I could predict the next song on the radio or who was about to call right before the phone rang. I was in my twenties before I started reading for others. These readings increased my confidence in my abilities. Confirmations from my clients chose my path more than anything. I do not do this for me but for those who call me seeking insights.
How do you personally experience a reading? Is it a presence you encounter or a type of vision that you receive?
Each reading is unique depending on the caller. I believe I “read” each person with their best way of receiving and understanding. Sometimes I see “pictures” or mini clips of situations. Sometimes I “feel” the caller and the person they are asking about. I also feel aches and pains, heartache, joy, and happiness. I never know what to expect.
Tarot cards are one of your choice tools in readings. How does this work exactly? How do they give a person guidance and advice?
I use tarot cards as a “quick read” of a situation and then move into my other abilities. The cards will tell a story or act as a road map for what is really going on. I have found it can be the most efficient way to get to the root of the call so that I can get into the information that is needed.
Do you have a favorite card?
All the cards have value, even the negative ones. The Sun, the Star, the World, and the Ten of Pentacles are always nice, but so is the Six of Swords predicting that smoother waters are ahead if the caller is going through a rough patch.
What questions come up more often in a reading?
Money & Finances, Love and Family matters. And the questions are when, why, who and how? (Smiling here)
What do you think is the best use for Tarot? (Prediction, guidance, self-help?)
Tarot is best for a quick overview of the situation. If you do not like what it shows, then change ONE thing and that will change the entire reading. The future is malleable. My readings give clients the details of the current situation. If the client does not like the situation then I also help them see what will happen with different courses of action. Prediction is one answer, and the other is guidance. I have found that very few people can read for themselves (including psychics), so self-help comes from the guidance of your psychic.
What is the most challenging part of being a psychic medium?
I do have some medium abilities however I do not call myself a medium. My strongest gifts are my empathic intuition and all my Clairs…
I have to say the most challenging part of being a psychic is when a person calls for advice, I give it and then they sabotage themselves by taking an action that I have warned against. Some choose to try to manipulate a situation instead of letting the Universe do its thing.
What do you hope people will take away from working with you?
Self-empowerment. I want my clients to look at themselves and their situations with fair and less self-judgmental eyes. I want them to see that surrender is not giving up but allowing life to happen organically. I want them to know that setting boundaries is a good thing and leaving a toxic situation is brave. I want them to know that the most important love relationship they will ever have is the one they have with themselves!
