TV personality and professional psychic medium Jackie Gillies is headed to Townsville with her Shine It Up tour.
On May 30, Jackie Gillies will bring her show to The Ville Resort – Casino where she’ll take to the stage to share her spiritual journey and, if guided, deliver messages from the other side.
“The show’s about positive mindset, self-empowerment and motivation,” she says.
“You can expect a kind of cross between Anthony Robbins, Oprah and Ellen — complete with the dancing.”
Jackie discovered her psychic ability as a child.
“When I was little I used to talk to people but I thought it was my imagination. As I got older I realised that wasn’t the case — I was actually speaking to spirits. They weren’t floating around like people think. They just looked like regular people.”
But it wasn’t until a broken relationship brought her back to her life’s purpose that Jackie left corporate banking to give readings.
“It was my first relationship,” Jackie says.
“I had a dream he cheated on me and I saw every single girl he ever cheated on me with. I went to him and gave him some details and he wanted to know which friend told me…
“I lost my sense of who I was and I was so angry. One day I was crying in my bedroom and I said ‘If there’s a God, then prove it!’… That’s when I saw an angel who told me I had a higher purpose. It wasn’t a dream and it wasn’t alcohol — I didn’t even start drinking until I was 25.
After that I started hearing more about people’s pasts, presents and futures. I now believe I had to go through that situation to learn my self-worth again so I could teach others how to do it too.”
When Jackie ‘read’ the owner of a crystal shop in her home town of Newcastle the lady was so impressed she asked her to do readings for customers. At first, Jackie refused, instead buying books from the store to hone her skills. But the third time the lady asked Jackie found herself saying ‘Yes’ and was soon booked out months in advance purely by word of mouth.
Now Jackie has embarked on a national tour where she’ll share her gift further afield.
“I’ll talk about how I’ve manifested what I want in my life,” says Jackie, adding that her husband Ben (the drummer from Silverchair) was one of her manifestations.
“After that bad relationship, I wrote down a list of everything I wanted in a guy and swore I’d never date another man until I found all of those things.”
The Real Housewives of Melbourne star and her hubby are working on a manifestation of their own as well — a baby.
“Since coming out of the jungle (for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!) I’ve said to Ben ‘Let’s do this’. I’m ready to experience motherhood.”
But don’t expect Jackie becoming a mum to slow her down too much. She hasn’t ruled out a return to The Real Housewives of Melbourne and says her sights are set on her own psychic reality show.
“I want to bring what I do into the television world so I can reach more people,” Jackie says.
“Watch this space…”
