Bright Raven

I’m a natural psychic empath, tarot reader, and qualified Reiki practitioner. I intuitively use tarot cards as a source of psychic inspiration to provide clarity and guidance through my spiritually connected higher self. From childhood, I have always been sensitive to atmospheres, people’s energies, and other spiritual aspects of the world around me. At times, I have had prophetic dreams and these have given me valuable insights, too. I’m also Reiki trained which I feel has since enhanced my spiritual path, psychic and healing gifts. For anyone curious to know, “Bright Raven” is the translation of the name “Bertrum” which has long been of quirky significance to me and an in-joke several friends and family. Over the years I’ve discovered a number of thought-provoking synchronicities, so it seemed apt to use it as my reader name.

What can I expect from my reading with you?

I approach readings with absolute integrity, and always try to give my honest insights in an uplifting way. I’m compassionate but feel it’s important to provide more than pure comfort, and to highlight positive courses of actions, and fresh approaches to problems to consider, based on the broader picture I’m able to see. I believe that words are powerful, and at times can be healing and help instil inner balance, focus and strength in those who may be currently experiencing stressful and challenging situations.

Describe your journey into the psychic world

As a child I was particularly sensitive to atmospheres and the energy vibes of people around me, which gradually led to a deeper curiosity about spiritual subjects. As a young boy I became interested in astronomy, which later developed into studying astrology, which is more spiritually oriented. At seventeen I was given two books covering eastern philosophies, and began to learn some meditation techniques that helped me self-heal after a particularly difficult period. In my late teens I began producing birth charts for people, and started to study tarot. I find tarot cards, used in conjunction with my guides and higher-self, a highly effective tool for psychic readings. My main areas of interest now are archangels, tarot, angel cards, crystals, Reiki and healing.

What prompted you to start giving readings?

Although I’ve been self-employed for many years, the work I’ve done hasn’t always satisfied my more mystical leanings. I find it satisfying to have contact with a mix of people from diverse backgrounds, and hopefully help them a little, and sometimes even nicely surprise them with unexpected validations and uncanny information.

What are your experience and qualifications?

I am qualified up to Reiki II (practitioner level) through a highly reputable course (Reiki Evolution) which took several months to complete to the second level. I have a BA (Hons) Contemporary Arts Degree specialising in Visual Art and Music. For my dissertation I studied Freud's DreamWorks (in relation to Surrealism), therefore have a deep interest in the interpretation of dreams, both from a psychological point of view, and as a prophetic guide. I’ve experienced an abundance of challenging circumstances which I feel has helped deepen my understanding and empathy towards other people going through some trying times. I’m non-judgemental and generally like to help and support people in a compassionate way.

What is your most memorable psychic experience?

A close friend of mine experienced a traumatic mid-life crisis after learning that her father had been married before and she had a much older half-sister. Her newly discovered relatives later contacted her and wanted to meet up. However, my friend found this difficult to deal with and barely mentioned it for over eighteen months. Around this time, I began to have a persistent urge that she really ought to make contact—especially with her half-sister. It was a difficult subject to broach, but I felt an intense conviction to stress how important it was to meet them as soon as possible. A couple of weeks later, she decided to meet with her, by now, elderly sibling. Unfortunately, just over a week later her half-sister became ill and tragically died. She was extremely grateful I acted as a catalyst for her to have seize the chance to meet her sibling before she passed away.

Why do you give readings through this service?

I like to help and support people, and feel I have a certain calling to provide guidance and clarity to assist others. I think it’s healthy and good to do something to give rather than to take.

How do you use the tarot cards as a spiritual tool?

I use tarot as psychic inspiration and a guide, to channel information through my higher-self when I connect to clients’ own energies.

How do you interpret the tarot cards to focus on love?

In love tarot readings, I try to examine the dynamics between the people involved; the personalities and context surrounding those in question, and look at future trends based on overall compatibility and circumstances.

How do your visions manifest themselves?

I see things in a similar way as to how one might consciously conjure an image in the mind, except it relies on removing one’s own “ego” out the way in order to receive visual information. Another way to put it is to be receptive for things to form rather than force it as in the case of imagination.

How does spiritual healing flow through you?

As a natural healer, I was drawn to Reiki as a means of harnessing universal energies (Chi, life force energy, etc.), acting as a conduit, rather than deplete my own. I’m able to offer distance healing where required to those I read for.

What is the importance of spirituality in your life and how do you convey it in your readings?

I feel my Reiki training and understanding of some Buddhist philosophy is a source of great inner strength, and the principles help to keep a level of mindfulness and compassion towards others who may be experiencing difficult times. I have quite a lot of knowledge of various psychic and spiritual paths, and sometimes draw upon this to add an extra layer to the psychic guidance I give.

Why are angel cards special to you?

Having developed an affinity with archangels I feel angel cards provide a good non-threatening alternative to tarot cards. In tarot, some of the more ominous images can seem a little intimidating and scary to some people. I personally find angel cards are excellent for broad daily / monthly guidance and highlighting life purpose; areas to contemplate and consider for self-knowledge and self-development in various aspects of life.

What makes you typical of your star sign?

As a Scorpio and water sign, I have the typical deep perception, emotional depth and sensitivity. This has been a great source to draw upon on my spiritual path and in everyday life – creatively, intuitively and psychically.
