My spiritual inspiration
Jayne Wallace reveals how her childhood spirit guide helped her be the clairvoyant she is today
Clairvoyant Jayne Wallace talks about embracing her childhood spirit guide, regaining her confidence and being inspired to fulfil her purpose
My spirit guide, Star, first came to me in my bedroom when I was six years old. She was around 15, with long white hair, and from the middle of her forehead shone a dazzling star, like a really bright crystal.
When I told Mum, who was very spiritual, about her, she said: ‘You’ve met your spirit guide. She’s there to help you. Ask her what her name is next time she comes to see you.’
So, I did, and the name ‘Star’ popped into my mind. I was hearing Spirit for the first time, and I’ve heard it as an inner voice, and learned to listen to it, ever since.
Accept and trust
When I was 12, I woke up screaming in pain from my hip, and unable to move.
I was whisked off to hospital and, after countless tests, diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
During those dark days in hospital,
I became angry, confused and very bitter. Because of this, I shut out all things spiritual – including Star – and I kept her away for more than six years.
Then, when I was 19 and working in Tenerife, Star managed to break through to me.
‘Something bad is going to happen, I am here for you,’ she said.
Later that day, my brother phoned to tell me Mum had died.
Before I left Tenerife for home, Mum’s spirit connected with me and said: ‘You have to let
Star in. She’s there to guide you. You must not be angry, just accept and trust.’
You’re never alone
So, I welcomed Star back into my life, and it was like a best friend returning to me.
I believe she’s a higher being, who’s with me every day, bringing this warm feeling and the comfort of knowing that I’m never alone.
When I was in hospital as a kid, unable to move and terrified about what was going to happen to me, I lost a lot of confidence. Reuniting with Star gave me my confidence back as well as the strength to weather, not just pain, but the grief of losing my mum, and later my beloved dad.
Synchronicity is real
On a freezing, grey, sludgy Tuesday before Christmas 2005, I had this mad need to go to Selfridges, even though the cold was playing havoc with my arthritis. Still, I knew Star was telling me I had to go THAT day.
I met up with a friend and, after a bit of shopping, we headed to a coffee shop in Selfridges, but there wasn’t a seat to be had.
Then I heard Star say: ‘Just walk around one more time.’
So, I did as she said and sure enough there was a table. We sat down and I got my Tarot cards out, to give my friend a reading. All of a sudden I spotted this businessman staring over at me.
‘You must talk to him,’ said a voice in my head. The man came over and asked what I was doing. When I told him, he asked if I could do it anywhere.
‘Of course,’ I smiled.
Then he said: ‘I want you here – in my store.’ It turned out he was Paul Kelly, director of Selfridges! He only walks around the department store on a Tuesday and Star had made sure I was right there when he was.
I opened my Psychic Sisters concession at Selfridges the following year, offering readings and healing.
Spread the word
Star hasn’t just helped me develop my psychic gifts, she’s also given me the courage and conviction to help as many people as I can with them. She's inspired me to fulfil my purpose, which is to take spirituality to the lives of ordinary people, including those who wouldn’t normally believe or have access to psychics like me – such as the people who visit Selfridges.
