A modern medium
Shoe-loving psychic is walking tall in the spiritual world
Anyone who comes across Lauren Robertson’s website, can’t fail to be seduced by this striking young medium in her trademark designer heels.
Stunning and confident, the 31-year old, from Dalry in North Ayrshire, is gathering quite a following with her brand of spiritual coaching, drawing on her experiences as a medium to help clients empower themselves.
The title of her debut book The Medium in Manolos, which guides those who want to explore and develop their own skills in mediumship, was inspired by her obsession with the expensive designer heels that she wore to her first job as a professional psychic and that she now likes to spend her hard-earned money on.
Lauren reveals it all started with a visit from her dead gran when she was 17.
‘It was Valentine’s Day 2003. My gran Mamie had passed two days earlier and I had a dream about her in which she said, “people don’t die, we carry on existing. When you’re older, it’s your job to share that reality with people.”
‘It was my first ever connection with the spirit realm and after that I started reading books on dream interpretation and became convinced that my gran’s consciousness – wherever she was – had merged with mine.’
Lauren then developed her psychic skills using angel cards and when she first started doing readings, people were amazed by her accuracy.
Months after her gran’s visit, it was decided, after truanting, that Lauren would leave school – a turn of events which helped her follow her true calling. ‘I was so worried Mum would go mad and logged on to the job centre website.
“Looking for a job working with people, flexible hours, creative, no early mornings,” I typed into the search box.
A job jumped out. ‘Psychics and mediums wanted in the Glasgow area’. ‘I knew I had no experience but my readings were accurate so I went for it.’
At the interview – in her Manolos – she impressed the interviewer and was hired on the spot. Days later, she was touring the UK giving readings just like her gran had foretold.
In 2012, Lauren did a degree course in Consciousness and Philosophy of Mind, to help her combine her psychic skills with the self-empowerment tools she uses today.
