Lisa Campion is a local Psychic, counselor, reiki master teacher, and energy healer. In this interview, we discuss what it’s like to be a psychic, the need for healing now more than ever, and the different ways of connecting with people in today’s society through healing. We talk about best-selling books, COVID-19, and how you can get in touch with your psychic side!
Kaylee, Soulita: You describe yourself as a Psychic Counselor, a Reiki Master Teacher, and Energy Healer. How do you define these roles?
Lisa: I started working as a psychic when I was just 19 years old. This was way back in the 1980s when there weren’t any psychics on TV, or anywhere really. I grew up as a very psychic child and had to learn everything the hard way since back then there were no teachers either.
Once I started working as a psychic, I soon realized that I needed more skills and went to school to become a therapist. For a long time, I combined psychic work with counseling and that is how I got to be a Psychic Counselor. About 20 years ago, I added Reiki into the mix and have been teaching Reiki ever since then. These days, I combine Reiki (and a few other types of energy work), psychic work, and counseling all together into my unique blend of healing.
It’s the best job ever and I feel lucky to be able to do it and also help people too.
Kaylee: Where and when did your interest in reiki begin?
Lisa: Just about 20 years ago, I started seeing more and more things happening in people’s bodies and in their energy fields while I was doing my psychic work. I was seeing colors, and weird patterns in their energy field that I knew were energy blocks but I didn’t know how to address these things in my sessions. I was looking for some way to directly deal with people’s energy systems and also their bodies.
At that point, I was also seeing a lot of things happening in people’s bodies too. (I am a pretty good medical intuitive too.) One of my friends recommends that I study Reiki as a way to understand and impact people’s energy systems and bodies too. That was 1999 and it has been a very powerful and beautiful part of my healing practice since then. I have been teaching Reiki since that time too and also enjoy that very much.
Kaylee: How did you get your titles? Were there schooling or certificate programs involved?
Lisa: I did do the normal schooling for my work as a counselor with a bachelor’s degree and the equivalent of a master’s degree in psychology and counseling. I have trained with many other Reiki Masters over the years and have certificates from each training. There is no real certification for being a psychic, although I do think it would be cool if there were. Let’s start at Psychic University.
