If you’ve ever felt there was something spooky about your Airbnb, your gran’s lounge room or your own apartment, then you’re not alone.
According to renowned psychic medium, Calise Simone, who hails from Sydney, there is some truth behind haunted houses – but they’re not as scary as we all think.
Calise – who has connected to the spirit world for Hollywood big shots, such as The Osbournes, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars and actor Rob Schneider – claims while people might think a ghost is trawling their house, that’s actually not what’s happening at all.
“I think people get confused and they think that if it something feels creepy it must be a ghost,” Calise told Yahoo Lifestyle.
“It’s absolutely correct that if you walk into a house or into a space that has had a traumatic event, it will feel traumatic, whether the event happened five minutes ago or five years ago.
“That traumatic energy is still held in that space and so a lot of people sort of let their imagination wander and they turn that into the idea that the place must be haunted.”
Calise said people who are very psychic might even hear noises that happened during that traumatic event when they’re sleeping, but she says that’s still not a ghost, it’s ‘the residual energy of that moment’.
“That energy is real and you are feeling it, it’s definitely there,” she continued.
“So anyone who’s even slightly tuned in will feel if some place has a good energy or if some place has a creepy energy. It’s very easy to pick it up.”
Calise said she has been connecting with spirits for her whole life and while it was initially confronting waking up as a four-year-old to see people staring over her, she’s learned to deal with it.
“I just have really worked with spirits on such a close level for so long that I’ve understood that when they come to visit they’re here just to say hello and they’re not in a physical body so they can never harm you, that’s never their intention,” she said.
When she decided to take part in intuitive development classes to learn how to switch it off, she realised how strong her connection really was.
“My friends were coming to me asking for readings and then their friends wanted readings and then their families wanted meetings and then I found that I had this gift where I could help people,” she said.
“So I ended up following that path and pursuing it as a career because it was so fulfilling for me and for them.”
Now, Calise does reading via Skype with clients all over the world, conducts, in-person full length readings and she takes to the stage to bring through messages from the spirit world.
“The spirit world is all around us, so you can tune into the energy at anytime from anywhere,” she said.
Calise’s only Australian appearance will be presented by Kailo Wellness Medispa at The Calile Hotel on Monday March 25th at 6pm.
