Celebrated psychic She D' Montford was born a psychic and tutored by Tibetan and Hindu Shamans since the age of 12. A teacher, healer, author, promoter, and activist for shamanism, tantra, wicca and the tibetan cause, she has also had her powers tested on Australian television and is the first person the media turn to for questions on witchcraft.
She demystifies the phenomenon of psychic ability for Evolve Asia. Here are some very powerful notes from a recent interview at Golden Space Singapore.
What is a psychic?
Everyone can be and is psychic.
A psychic is someone who has become adept at reading natural signs, symbols and people as well as one who is deeply in touch with one's gut feelings.
What is the internal experience of a psychic like?
You receive an impression/pictures that you then interpret.
Interpretation is not 100 percent but very close.
It comes as a vision and you learn to let images come and equally important you learn to let them go.
Verification is received when your customers return to you
time and again.
Can you teach one to be a psychic?
Psychism can be taught methodically in a step-by-step manner.
There is no reason why you will not get certain results if you follow certain steps.
There is a general perception that a psychic that uses tools is lesser than one who doesn't use them. What are your thoughts on that?
There is nothing wrong with tools. They can be very helpful. I used to be smug about not needing tools in my youth. But you miss out on a lot of valuable spiritual education if you don't get to know the tools available out there. eg the tarot (an englishman once told me that no spiritual education is complete without knowing the symbolism of the tarot). I have recently released my own deck.
She added some very important advice to aspiring psychics and readers in further response to this question...
Don't try to be more credible.
Often we try and it becomes counterproductive.

Self-professed 'karang-guni' (garbage collector) Yvonne Sim is a discreet lady with a heart of gold. As the Singapore contact for the Love the Children Foundation based in the Philippines, she has for many years sponsored the delivery of boxes of toys, books and computer parts collected from various charity drives in Singapore to the foundation. Evolve Asia catches up with a lady who has found a useful and simple way to be of service to many.
1, How did you come to hear about Love The Children and what is the story behind what is now your three-year affair with them?
My journey with Love The Children Foundation ( LTCF ) began in Jan 2011. I have always been keen to explore a Social Enterprise model with a developing country to promote their home-grown resources for a sustainable livelihood project, as well as to work closely with an orphanage, for personal reasons. So when I was given the contact details for LTCF by a missionary friend, I quickly booked my flight and wasted no time in jumping onto a plane and flying off to Davao to meet Cindy and Tony Chua, the founders of LTCF.
That meeting had a profound impact on me. I met two people with such big hearts, that they would give up their time, careers, and emptied all that they had, based on a conviction that they were called to house and to care for abandoned children who had no one to take care of them. I saw that commitment and passion in all the staff of LTCF who treated the children with dignity, respect, and loved them as their own. The children were happy, secure, and had a home to call their own.
I left Davao with some soul-searching to do.
That same year, my family visited LTCF during our year-end vacations. Before our trip, I asked Cindy for wish-lists of the children at LTCF so that we could bring them over for Christmas. The wish-lists were modest, but the response from the people I sent out requests to were overwhelming. The donations filled up almost 10 jumbo boxes ( the size of a washing machine ) for shipment. This was the beginning of the “karang-guni” collection I now do on a regular basis. The boxes can be filled up to the brim and are charged a nominal rate per box. I learnt that this is the usual mode for domestic helpers to send stuff back to the Philippines and am thankful that such a service is available.
2. What kind of contributions do you make to LTCF on a regular basis?
My husband and I make a monthly contribution to LTCF to support their operating costs. Last year, we celebrated our 25th anniversary with Cindy and Tony as our special guests. A special offering was taken at our anniversary party for LTCF, for its livelihood programme. Our friends gave very generously.
3. How often do you visit LTCF?
About once or twice a year. I get monthly updates and statement of accounts .
4. What kind of obstacles and challenges have you faced in this journey?
The realisation that donors suffer from donor fatigue. Many charities run into difficulties when funding is uncertain, and they are therefore unable to plan, budget, and manage their operations efficiently. That is the reason why we decided to make a long term commitment to LTCF. Also, the “karang-guni” concept has taken off well, since people are more willing and ready to give away their pre-loved items than to make monetary contributions. In this way, I get a constant stream of donations ( from friends and through word-of-mouth ) and have no qualms about being thick-skinned in asking. The value-added of such items is beyond what we imagine. Our excesses become other people’s treasures.
5. What are the rewards of this association?
That in our own small way, we can make a big difference, like ripples in the ocean.
6. What are your current projects in relation to them/others?
Continuing with what I’ve been doing and being open to opportunities which can help LTCF expand and grow.
7. What are your future plans in relation to them/others?
I have big dreams for LTCF, to become a resource and outreach centre for their community. They are premature at the moment, but I’m working on it.
Sonia Ong shares her experience of reconnective healing with Dawn Chen. Compared to reiki, Dawn describes reconnective healing as a healing method that activates not only universal energy but also frequencies at different levels. Clients can sometimes see healing frequencies or colors and/or messages as instructions to overcome their physical or mental disease. Clients are also visited and helped by their guides, angels and other beings like fairies.
Her hands touch me only to signal the beginning and end of the session.
The rest of the time she is positioned around and occasionally very far from me at the corners of the room.
Internally I feel the pooling and eddying reservoirs of energy circulating around my problem areas in the solar plexus and the back. Subsequently the energies travel up, down and around my spine rhythmically and urgently. It feels like a spring bath without the wetness. I emerge fresh, pulsing. The experience is more dynamic and less gentle than a reiki session and i don't find myself dozing off as much.
Post session we discuss our experiences of the healing.
She tells me that a being was present and was stitching up my back.
And after, angels assuring that everything will be ok. It's a lovely experience even as i am not clairvisual. After, i feel lightbodied the whole day, possibly energy detox, and in need of a restorative nap that I honour and highly recommend- a positive and enjoyable session.

Elaine Grundy, teacher-owner of the Reiki Centre, profiled by Evolve Business this month, is also the writer of the book Reiki-Pure and Simple (2010).
This clear and concise book
may convince prospective students that Reiki works! It is at parts a Reiki 1 manual and at parts a verbal advocate for Reiki.
Elaine offers research evidence that has been lacking in a lot of literature on Reiki. Readers will find the results of surveys and experiments on Reiki conducted at the Reiki Centre that consolidates first-hand experiential results of her clients and students with reiki, giving personal insight into the benefits and uses of reiki.
While targeted at beginners, seasoned students will appreciate this complete treatment of Reiki 1, while teachers may find this a helpful teaching aid or guide.
The book can be purchased at Reiki Centre (details provided here).
If you 're convinced that Reiki works and would like to learn it from the convenience of your computer, Elaine launches her home study course this month. Visit http://www.reiki-centre.com/home-study-reiki/
