I met Lizzy 10 years ago when a friend recommended her for a reading. She was very accurate and lovely to be around. Since then I have followed her on social media and seen her on tv shows such as Today Tonight, The Project, and in many magazines. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to her for this interview. She was very generous to make time in her busy life for me and I found everything she said extremely interesting. I could have chatted to her all day.
Tell us a bit about yourself and what your life currently looks like?
Most of my time is spent between psychic readings, mediumship sessions, exorcisms, space clearings, assisting people in passing over peacefully, pitching my upcoming TV show Witch In The City and hosting my OWLL Coven witches circle. I have 5 sons and 3 grandchildren. People fly from all over the world to see me in person – 70% of my readings are done face to face, 30% on Skype. People are so open to all of this now – from all walks of life and nationalities, public people, CEOs, bank managers, politicians and celebrities. I see 50/50 men and women – that’s a lot more men now than ever before.
What do you feel your mission is?
To take everything I do to a broader audience. Educate. Get the Pagan message out. To have Paganism recognised as a religion which I am actively taking steps towards.
What led you to the path you are on now?
I started ‘seeing’ at 4, then started doing professional readings at 9 when a neighbour came over with a basket of fruit and asked if she could pay for a session.
What has been your biggest challenge?
Predicting 9/11 in a local newspaper before it happened. I had vivid dreams about it for 9 months prior and felt myself burning and falling from a building.
How did you use that difficult period as a catalyst for positive change in your life?
Firmed up my boundaries and became more discerning about who I trust. What I say in readings comes with consequences and big responsibility. I became careful about who I spoke to and what I said. I had an understanding of the spiritual world but was very naive about the physical world. I am now very selective on how much information I give to people.
What has been the highest point in your life so far?
My kids and grandchildren. Doing personal love spells for romance and creating the man of my dreams. Knowing I have power that I can use to manifest things I want in my life and it is limitless as long as it’s done with pure intentions. We can have anything we want and don’t need to live in victim or poverty mentality.
What positive impact do you want to make in the world?
To help people wake up to their spirit – energy and soul is very real. I want people to be accountable for themselves and know their own power and worth. I don’t want them to become reliant on me or anyone else – I want them to take what they have learned and go and do it for themselves.
What is most important to you?
Publicly – equality, empowerment and recognition.
Personally – to find my worth and not hold myself back, never stop learning. Turn every negative into a positive. Always be humble enough to know that I don’t know everything. It all comes down to energy.
How do you handle low days?
Rest, meditation, music, baths, take time to do something for myself. Spend time with my beautiful man I created. Spend time with the ones I love. There are low days as there’s a lot of violence in my job – I deal with people who have extreme mental illness, ice users, prisoners, psychiatric wards…
What do you do to stay in the flow and inspired?
I am always getting inspiration every day without even trying. Sylvester Stallone, Sir Richard Branson and Arnold Schwarzenegger inspire me. I’m really inspired by kind, genuine entrepreneurs and real, raw genuine everyday people.
What’s the best advice you would give in regards to your experiences?
Be open to learn – always. Balance – if you want to learn, READ equally as much as you DO (so many people just read and research but don’t put anything into practise). Don’t overload. Research classes and circles before going to see if they are right for you – ask questions.
