DEB Webber was only a child when she found out she could connect with the spirit world.
“When you’re a child you don’t realise you have this special ability because you don’t really know life outside of your experience. You just think who you are is how everybody is at that age. It was my grandmother who told me I had a gift, and that made me realise I different to most children,” she said.
The former Woman’s Day columnist and star in popular TV show, ‘Sensing Murder’ will come to Moree for a one-off show. She has put on offer her spiritual gift to help anyone who wants to connect with the spiritual world.
“I can help anyone who is experiencing difficulty in their lives,” she said.
While the psychic medium has helped thousands of people get in touch with spirits she admits she still comes across sceptics. She also revealed one of them used to be her.
“A lot of children can be scared of you because they don’t quite understand. While I was growing up, I would just ignore the visions or spirits. It wasn’t until I was much older that I learned to accept my ability to communicate with the spirit world.”
It took 15 years of nursing and a lifetime of battling social ostracism, before Deb came into her own as a psychic medium.
The last show I did, I had the feeling that I was walking into a pole. It turned out that one of the women in the audience had a family member who was in a car accident. Her relative’s spirit was trying to communicate with me.Deb Webber
“When I was living in Victoria with my kids, I went to four or five interviews to be a nurse and got the job for all of them. Though, I couldn’t make it to work. The car broke down, or the kids got sick. Then I woke up and found I had forgotten everything I had ever learned about nursing. That was when it was clear that these spirits were blocking me. They wanted me to acknowledge who I really was,” she said.
Deb identifies three spirits that exist in the world: light, dark and grey spirits.
“The light ones are the ones you want to draw to you. These are the good ones that stay true to themselves.
“The dark ones are evil souls. I don’t like judging because all souls come from the same place, but these ones can cause problems.
“The grey ones are in-between. They can cause havoc, but they’re not naughty. They can be a reason why the windows in your house keep opening or why items in your home go missing.”
Deb hopes to connect with the lighter spirits when she comes to Moree as she intends to hold a number of spot readings.
“I will walk around the audience and speak to spirits that might be a family member or somebody they know. It all depends on the night. Spirits can be fast or slow. I have no control over that part. Though, the last four performances, the spirits have been fantastic,” she said.
Deb said she is drawn to audience members based on an out of body experience or a spiritual connection or pull.
“I might see a light behind an audience member’s head, or follow a snail that only I can see,” she said.
In some cases, it can be an unexpected sensation.
I have had five heart attacks in my life, not all of them mine.Deb Webber
“The last show I did, I had the feeling that I was walking into a pole. It turned out that one of the women in the audience had a family member who was in a car accident. Her relative’s spirit was trying to communicate with me,” she said.
It’s a kind of sensation that Deb experiences on a regular basis outside of her shows.
“A couple of years ago, my leg was in a lot of pain. I was prescribed pain killers, but they weren’t working. Scans showed there was nothing wrong with my knee. The doctor who is also involved in the spirit world, told me I should go home and wait to see if the pain was mine.”
It might be a cryptic message to some, but Deb knew what the doctor meant right away. It wasn’t long after the advice, that Deb met a lady. Her late husband had lost his leg in a boat-propeller accident.
“I was feeling the husband’s pain,” she said.
Though, it’s not just the spirit’s pain Deb can feel as a psychic medium.
“I have had five heart attacks in my life, not all of them mine.
“I was at home when it felt like I was having a heart attack. The doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with me. I went back home and that’s when my dad said he was having a heart attack. Fortunately, there were only minor complications. After the episode, the doctor said my father should have been in a worse state because it was a big heart attack. At that moment, I realised part of my father’s heart attack had been transferred to me beforehand,” she said.
And Deb explained it’s not just psychic mediums who are susceptible to these anomalies.
“Spirits are all around us. Man made items will disappear in front of people’s faces. That’s because of a spirit. You know how socks always go missing in the washing machine? There’s a reason for that unexplained happening.”
There will also be a Q and A session available on the night before a Tibetan Crystal Bowl meditation caps off Deb’s one-off show.
“This is to make sure nobody goes home with any unwanted spirits. There have been some cases when people couldn’t unlock their car doors after the show. The spirits were playing tricks on them. I had to quickly get rid of them,” she said.
Deb will appear at the Moree Services Club on May 29. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start. Tickets cost $58 and they can be purchased at www.debwebber.com.au.
