Charmaine is a very happy medium

CHARMAINE Wilson thought she was going nutty until she realised she had the rare gift of being a medium.

"Spirits can see what they want to see.

"When spirits were alive they were checking up on loved ones and in a way they are still with us, not 24 hours a day but they are here," Ms Wilson said.

Ms Wilson was the first medium to win Channel Seven's The One.

She has proven her abilities - even to those once sceptical - and thrives on changing the attitude of those who question the authenticity of her natural gift.

In fact she understands the wariness of some.

Let's face it, when someone says they talk to spirits that have passed over, you could question their sanity.

"Before I knew I was developing talents of a medium, I thought I was going nutty; I thought the spirits I saw were tree people."

Ms Wilson said the voices she heard were coming from people who lived in the trees outside and she found it hard to shut them out.

She said her natural ability is complemented by not only her own troubled past but also the loss she has experienced during her life.

The former drug addict only woke to her gift to reunite those who have crossed over to those still in life in 1999 after her father died.

She has lived through a lot of heartache in her life, including the death of her brother and her four-year-old daughter, both to tragic accidents.

Her mother passed away in late 2006.

These deaths have allowed Charmaine to relate to how her clients may be feeling.

Clean for more than 10 years, Charmaine Wilson has now become a world-renowned Australian medium, recognised for her skill and compassion.

"I absolutely believe there is a spirit world out there but where they actually go is still a mystery.

"They spend time in a different dimension and I believe part of that dimension is sometimes here in our earthly dimension."

Her special gift was showcased to the nation when she was crowned winner of the Channel Seven smash hit program The One.

With cameras capturing her every move she showed Australia her ability to be led by spirits she not only hears, but talks with.

Charmaine was also honoured as Queensland's Psychic of the Year in 2008 and Australian Psychic of the Year for 2005.

Charmaine tours extensively around the country, and runs workshops all year long.

She has remained dedicated to giving accurate information about the spirit world since she began her life's work in 2002.

She has released two books and also created a series of seminars called Positive Grief Healing workshops based on her own journey into the light after falling down in grief.

Charmaine said a medium was not like a physic but was more of a healing tool for people who have lost a loved one in their life.

"I am a helping tool for the spiritual world and I am happy to be that tool and help people smile again.

"Being a medium is wonderful.

"Lives were not supposed to be stuck in a moment of death.

"It is about moving on from the death.

"Many spirits get very angry about loved ones who see them as a 'moment of death' - spirits were more than that.

"It is about being happy and the joy of having them in our lives for so long," she said.

Check out Charmaine Wilson at the MECC on Monday, March 26, from 7.30pm. Tickets are available through dial n charge 4961977.
