Judy shares her link with the spir­i­tual realm

Medium finds time in busy sched­ule to write book

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Elisha Pearce

MINCHINBURY pro­fes­sional medium Judy O’Brien is booked out solid un­til July 2017.

But for the for­mer clin­i­cal nurs­ing spe­cial­ist, money isn’t the mo­ti­va­tion for shar­ing her “gift”.

It’s more about her re­as­sur­ance to the thou­sands of peo­ple who have dif­fi­culty com­ing to terms with the loss of a loved one that “there is life af­ter life”.

Ms O’Brien has been es­pe­cially busy of late: she’s not long pub­lished her first book and just re­cently held a demon­stra­tion at St Marys to raise money for the Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at West­mead.

Mrs O’Brien said 200 peo­ple came to the “very emo­tional” event and raised $1100 for the hos­pi­tal.

“It was awe­some ... it’s all spirit, not me,” she said.

“There was a lady there who had a child that died. I asked her ‘ why aren’t you wear­ing your neck­lace?’ and it turned out she’d taken a neck­lace off a week be­fore that had the ashes of her child in it. But (the child) wanted her to know she was all right.”

Mrs O’Brien said she has been able to see spir­its since she was five, but only left nurs­ing to be­come a medium eight years ago.

“Eight years ago my Nan passed away and she came to me and said ‘it’s time to leave nurs­ing’,” Mrs O’Brien said.

Booked out for read­ings 18 months in ad­vance, Mrs O’Brien has now pub­lished a book, The Voice of Spirit: A Medium’s Story.

“I tried to write the book in a per­son­able way, to be em­pa­thetic and let peo­ple know there is life af­ter life,’’ she said.

Mrs O’Brien said peo­ple who seek an­swers from medi­ums were of­ten those who had lost a loved one.

Ac­cord­ing to Mrs O’Brien, be­ing a medium can be a heavy bur­den, but is worth it to bring peace to peo­ple.

“I can hear and touch what peo­ple have passed with,” she said.

“Yes, it’s heavy; I get headaches, yes, and I get ex­tremely tired.

“I also know that there is life af­ter life. I can still see them. It is the most beau­ti­ful sight I’ve ever seen.”
