This week I am re-defining the definition of lucky: because out
of the estimated 20,000 people on the waiting list to meet world renowned Medium
Deb Webber, the universe has shined this holy grail of psychic opportunities on
me! And on live TV via the Kerrianne
show no less…
great interest and have long fantasised how amazing it would be to have the rare chance
to have a reading with her. And after
being at the right place at the right time (on Twitter no less!) suddenly this wish
was about to ring true!
as part of the audience. That was, until the day before when the lovely KAK
producer called to inform me I’d need to be there early for hair and make up
and then to do a one on one live to air!
in such a way I could grow accustomed to, I got to meet the warm, wonderful and
completely engaging Deb. To ease both
our nerves we spent quite a long time before hand chatting and connecting. And
I must say right from the minute we began, the accuracies flowed effortlessly
There were the descriptions of my family –she painted an
especially precise picture of Master H, who she correctly told me was three, a
bundle of boundless energy and that all she could get with him is “talk, talk,
talk, talk, TALK! It’s like he never stops!” Truer words have never been
spoken! Among other things she picked up the extremely close bond he has with
his Daddy, and that it felt like in his eyes he saw too much of mummy but not
enough of Daddy and his extreme dislike of carrots!
She was spot on in saying I had three grandparents who’d
passed, and one on my mum’s side that was still with us. She also picked up a
strong connection between my Dad and his mum, my dear Nan who passed last year.
She confirmed she was still “at home on the farm” which was something that
brought great comfort to me.
The most mind-blowing of all however was the information she
was able to give me on my beautiful friend Adam who passed away almost a decade
She started insistently repeating the word “friend, friend, friend,
FRIEND!” which seemed to emphasize he was an important person in my life. She understood he was male and that some years
had passed. She counted the years out
saying, “it’s like 8, 9, 10 years”, and “you were so far away when he passed”
and told me I was overseas, which I was.
He kept telling her “I wasn’t ready to go, I wanted to be
there for Mum” and he was in shock that it had happened. She knew he was alone,
it was so quick and in an unfamiliar place that wasn’t “home”. There were too
many dark clouds around him when he took her there so we left and he lightened
his mood. “He’s funny guy, great sense
of humour!” Deb told me enthusiastically and he kept winking at her. She also
validated her description “he’s tall, messy hair, nice build but not only
muscly. Broad at the shoulders but not at the waist. And he dresses very
casually. I keep seeing thongs” –it was
crystal clear we were talking about the same person.
I couldn’t have described him better myself.
Deb suddenly stopped. She looked at me with such surprise, clasping
her chest and gasped “he had a heart attack? But he was too young!”
Sadly she was so right. 24 years of age and gone too soon in
such a completely unexpected way. And if you ever needed proof then and there
that should be it. It is such an extremely rare occurrence – you could not simply
Even Adam, typically, was lightening the mood. When I tentatively asked if he’d forgiven me
for not being there for his funeral Deb let out a resounding “No!” and threw
her head back and laughed, adding “He’s saying “would you have preferred I
waited 6 months to have my heart attack after you came home?” and as strange as
that might sound, it’s something I could image him saying. As if teasing would
make the serious situation lighter. He
then gave her the symbol for money, which equated to the exact reason why I wasn’t
there when I so desperately wanted to be.
At one stage I had to excuse myself and pull myself
together. Deb passed on some personal messages to me and to his family and I
was shaking uncontrollably and felt like I was about to completely ruin my
lovely makeover. Blinking back the torrent of tears that threatened, I gave
myself a stern talking to and focused my thoughts on taking 10 deep breaths. A sense of peace then washed over me – I knew I’d be okay.
Soon enough we were being ushered on to the set of
Kerrianne. While I had been so emotional and nervous in the lead up by now I
thankfully felt so calm and ready. Deb
has such a wonderful way of making you feel at ease – her nature is so warm and
inviting and being in her presence truly is like basking in pure sunlight. Her
vibrant energy is contagious.

And I must say Kerrianne was a gracious host, and supremely
professional. She certainly made me feel at ease as well. And even if I do cringe a bit re-watching the footage (messy hair, crumpled shirt, gummy smile, my mind screams!) I’d do it all over again. In a heartbeat!
Days later and my head is still spinning. However, most resonant is the strong sense of
peace; something that I’ve struggled with for almost 10 years. It’s like I’ve
finally given myself permission to reflect happily, instead of miring myself in
guilt and misery with my memories (even if I’ll admit to a few more little
tears while typing this).
Then there is the undeniable truth that you can be gone, but
not forgotten. Never more than now do I truly believe that the loved ones we
lose far too soon from the earthly world, still stay close to us in the
To the beautiful, brilliant Deb Webber, I thank you with
every fibre of my being for this life changing day. So much emotion, so much
fascination, so much truth… You have helped more than you may ever know.
